After a tanker overturned between exits 12 and 13 last week on I-91 and caused extensive delays, a tractor trailer rolled over into the median near exit 11 outside North Haven on March 13, stopping traffic once again. Pictured: Nelcon Towing arrives on scene to help clean up.

Montowese School parents seek upgrades to playground By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Mirroring recent initiatives at other North Haven schools, a group of parents is seeking upgrades for Montowese Elementary School’s aged and potentially unsafe playground. “We’re just trying to raise some money to build a better playground,” said Tammy Wilson, co-chairman of the Montowese Playground Committee. “Our main goal is to raise funds to get new equipment installed correctly for kids.” Wilson believes Montowese needed $80,000 total for improvements. The school has three play

zones – one for kindergarten, one for first and second graders and another for third through fifth grade. Each displays distinct problems, according to Dyann Vissicchio, Montowese Playground Committee and North Haven Board of Finance member. Fencing wrapped around the kindergarten section requires repair. In front of Montowese, first and second grade students have a full allotment of equipment, including swings, a jungle gym and other apparatuses. However, the equipment is old or out-dated, including a bumpy, metal slide and a junSee Playground, page 6

If they pass pre-employment tests, three New Haven police officers laid off amidst budget crunches will be hired by North Haven’s law-enforcement department, aiding local finances and safety, according to officials. Finances “Running short-staffed by three people would have cost North Haven a sizeable amount in overtime, probably to the tune of excess of $100,000 in overtime replacement costs,” Police Chief

James X. DiCarlo said March 14. In February, New Haven officials dismissed 16 officers as city-wide budgets shrunk. “Our Police Commission chairman, Joseph D’Errico, informed the officers who got laid off that North Haven would be seeking certified officers,” DiCarlo said. “Six of the New Haven officers applied here. We gave three of them conditional offers. They still have to pass a full background text, a polygraph exam and an agility test.”

North Haven Re-employment Workshop

North Haven First Selectman Michael Freda and Workforce Alliance invite job-seekers who are currently out of work to take advantage of a special all-day workshop. The workshop will be held at North Haven Town Hall on Thursday, March 24, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Re-employment Workshop is an interactive experience for job seekers

who have been out of work for an extended period of time. Topics include: - Setting smart job targets in light of today’s job climate - Empowering your resume - Your network/your message - On-line search and applications - Using social networking media (FaceBook, LinkedIn,

Corrections We strive to bring you the most accurate and up-to-date information available each week, but if you see something in the North Haven Citizen that isn’t quite right, give our news department a call at (203) 317-2232, and we’ll do our best to make things right. On page 9 of the March 4 issue, in an article on North Haven’s new walk-in medical facility, Urgent Care Center, 163 Universal Drive, a copy editor’s personal reminder to seek clarification was accidentally left to print: “(PODIATRISTS OR PEDIATRICIANS????).” We regret the error. On Page 20 of the March 11 issue, the student work “Poem” was incorrectly identified as being written by Elizabeth Legatos. In fact, Elizabeth’s sister Maria wrote the poem. We regret the error.

Job Boards, etc.) - Managing your time “Workforce Alliance wanted to assist management workers who have had difficulty finding a job in this recession. Mid- and high-level people have found themselves unemployed for longer periods of time,” said Freda. “We requested this workshop for North Haven because it offers local residents great advice for a new way to approach their job search. In addition, we will have guests who will outline retraining opportunities and available social services.” The workshop is led by Laura Collins of Collins Group, a human resources consulting firm that brings over 20 years of corporate

includes lunch. Residents who are interested in participating should reserve a seat by emailing: info@workforcealliance.biz. Or call Robert Fort at (203) 624-1493, ext. 242. Seating is limited. All requests will receive replies.

On March 10, First Selectman Michael Freda formally announced his candidacy for a second term in office. “I have been privileged and honored to serve the fine citizens of the town of North Haven for these past 15 months, and I am determined to continue the progress that we have made in an effort to move North Haven forward into a very bright future,” Freda stated in a press release distributed by his campaign manager, Richard Monico. North Haven’s Republican Town Committee supports Freda, and he is expected to receive the organization’s endorsement at its July convention. During his first term in town hall, Freda’s focus has included economic growth, according to the press release. “I have immersed myself into the economic development of the town,” Freda stated. “I take very seriously the importance of being involved with economic development, working with commercial real estate agents, developers and businesses daily to ignite future develop-

ment in an effort to create jobs and minimize the tax burden for our residents.” In terms of first-term success, Freda pointed to his work in potentially bringing Yale-New Haven Hospital into North Haven, and working toward a medical epicenter on Devine Street. Moreover, he claimed to have fostered communication between residents and town decision-makers. “I believe in open and honest communication and offering a high level of customer service from all of our departments,” Freda stated. Additional personal efforts and accomplishments highlighted by Freda include that he worked to streamline processes, reduce expenditures and create internal efficiencies. “We are making progress, but there is still much more work to be done,” he stated. Freda said that his re-election campaign will continue to emphasize an optimistic outlook for the town’s future. “I believe in North Haven,”

Local business celebrates 35 years of memories, entertaining and community commitment By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

It has been said that music is beneficial for the soul, good exercise, makes people happy and bonds generations together, especially at special occasions. For Jason and Joy Diglio-Heintz, co-owners of Rent-A-DJ and long-time town residents, providing music for their clients and community has been a fulfilling, 35-year task. “When I was looking for work in between semesters at UMASS, a woman by the name of Roberta Delucca gave me the number to call Rent-A-DJ, thinking it would be a perfect job for me. I loved music and already had some technical experience with sound engineering,” recalled Jason Heintz. “From my first day on the job, I really enjoyed my work and I stayed with the company, moving through the ranks and some years later I bought the company. “Today, I’m co-owner and vice-president with my wife Joy and my friend Patrick Ryan,” he added. Heintz explained that Rent-A-DJ was founded in 1976 by Mark Kaplowe, who was a radio announcer on

New Haven’s WPLR radio. Kaplowe sold the company in 1994 to John Trousdale, a DJ and Heintz’s college friend, and Ryan, who had originally formed their own mobile disc jockey company while in college. Both Trousdale and Ryan had a vision to make the company grow, which they succeeded doing through the years. “Our office is located on Washington Avenue behind Minotti’s Music and the foundation for our business is integrity and to please our clients,” stated Ryan. “RentA-DJ is not a company with

one person doing all the work, but a mainstream of several dedicated and trained professionals who love music and working with people. Disc jockeys are very popular, especially at weddings.” “I believe that any company, in order to be successful, must focus on quality, customer service, integrity, staff support, professionalism, teamwork and the ability to adapt to new changes,” stated Kaplowe. “I hired employees with varied backgrounds and outstanding people’s skills and personality because 99 percent of our busi-

ness deals with people.” Through the years, RentA-DJ has hosted thousands of events in Connecticut and entertained over 1.5 million people, and there’s no substitute for that experience, added Kaplowe. “Interacting with the public is a large portion of what we do — we have hosted events for Bill Clinton, Steve Gutenberg, Tommy Hilfiger and other events, including the Special Olympics World Games. That was a very memorable event.” “Pat Ryan, and my husband Jason and I also believe in giving back to the commu-

nity,” said Joy Diglio-Heintz. “We have and still contribute to North Haven by donating to many town agencies, groups and organizations, including the North Haven Police Department, the North Haven Police Benevolent Association, the North Haven PTA/PTSA, Saint Frances Cabrini Women’s Guild and other local fundraisers.” “We are always receiving past, present and potential clients, and even former employees as walk-ins on an every day occurrence,” she

several open fields behind Montowese, which offer only two basketball hoops, painted four square lines, a jungle gym and swings. A similar jungle gym at Clintonville Elementary School was once deemed unsafe. “There is nothing really to use there,” Vissicchio said. “I have a child in that grade. She says that there is nothing to do when she goes outside.” “They don’t even have a lockable storage bin for balls and jump ropes,” she added. Like the area for first and second graders, Montowese’s rear playground could be dangerous due to location, according to Wilson. “We need to back it up, because it’s too close to the parking lot,” she said. Overall, several tree stumps remain along property grounds, and a softball field floods easily. No specific site plan has been designed yet. “We just started all of this at the end of last school year,” Wilson said.

Above, Ridge Road’s playground for third-throughfifth graders contains only a swing set, jungle gym, two basketball hoops, fields and a parking lot. Below, a jungle gym for first and second graders is off balance. “Talk about it had been ongoing at PTA meetings.” Delaying project development was Montowese’s administrative turnover. “We talked to former principal Anthony Mancini, who said he was onboard, but wanted

us to wait until the school got a new principal,” Vissicchio said. In moving forward, the Montowese Playground Committee has reached out to Mancini’s successor, Mary Federico. “She has been very, very good,” Wilson said of Federico. “She hasn’t objected to anything. She definitely wants to help raise money with us.” Federico agreed. “I’m in 100 percent support,” she said. On the Montowese Playground Committee’s side is precedent. Recent years saw similar organizations amass sufficient money for new recreation areas at Clintonville and Ridge Road elementary schools. Last year, local parents secured a $188,000 Small Town Economic Assistance Program state grant to fund a new playground at Clintonville. “We’re working with town to see when we could apply for grants,” Wilson said. “We’re trying to get one similar to the one Clintonville got.” “Why rebuild the wheel when you can just talk to people in town to see what they did,” Federico said. “To raise the sort of money it’s going to take to build what they want the children to have, it’s going to take a long time without grants.” As the Montowese Playground Committee pursues grants, numerous small fundraisers have garnered

Patriots and Scoundrels Book 2, Part 25 By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

When Mrs. Kensington entered the drawing room, she embraced both Lord and Lady Winfield, and cunningly expressed that she was delighted and surprised to see them. She invited them to be seated, and rang the bell for tea. She initiated a conversation by asking what brought them to America and her humble abode. “My dearest Phoebe, Thurston and I were longing to see you,” replied a sincere

Lady Winfield. “We were most troubled and saddened over the deaths of your husband and daughter. How are you dealing with their losses? Lord Winfield and I are here to lend our support in your time of need.” Mrs. Kensington smiled at her friends and said she was managing with her grief in her own way, and she filled her days by concentrating on raising Colonel Parker’s nephew Charles, who was residing with her. She admitted Charles had been a perfect comfort for her grieving heart.

“My precious Charles has saved my life. He has given me something to live for every day. I could deal with the loss of my spouse, but the loss of my Charlotte is too great to bear. Children are to bury their parents and not the other way around,” said a tearful Mrs. Kensington. Then she changed the subject by inquiring about the

happenings in London and the gatherings at St. James’ Court. Lady Winfield filled Mrs. Kensington in on the events and remarked that the royal family, in particular the King, missed her very much and longed for her return for a visit. Lord Winfield agreed with his wife by providing testimony to the fact that the King was hoping

her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good intentions of assisting her with her dilemma, but decided to confront Mrs. Kensington herself. Constance admired Charityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenacity and agreed to let her go as long as she and two male servants accompanied her on her visit. Wholeheartedly, Constance admitted that she did not trust Mrs. Kensington nor did she want Charity coming in contact with that horrid Lydia Johnson. Charity accepted Constanceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offer, and within the hour they were on their way to Kensington Hall. As the carriage approached Kensington Hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entrance, they saw an elegantly dressed couple leaving and getting into a waiting carriage. The driver waited until the other carriage had gone, and then pulled up to the front door. Constance and Charity emerged from the carriage

with the two servants behind them. They were greeted at the door by Lydia, who had a malevolent look on her face. Constance was rigid and formal in her tone as she explained the purpose for their visit. Reluctantly, Lydia let them in, and made them wait in the great hall. While they were waiting, Constance told Charity to go upstairs with the servants and gather her belongings. Constance would remain downstairs and deal with Mrs. Kensington. Not wanting to see her former employer, Charity did what her friend had suggested. While Charity and the ser-

Friday, March 18, 2011 — The North Haven Citizen

Park Continued from page 1 pushed back the date of the hike this year, so instead of snow to hike through, hikers found out just why the area is considered a flood plain. “This whole area acts like a sponge. The slower the water leaves this area and drains into the river, the cleaner the water becomes,” Picone said, standing on the riverbank looking over the flood plain. The site was once rural farmland. It was replaced by a subdivision for a time in the 1970s, but dealing with the annual spring flooding of the Quinnipiac proved too much for homeowners. Picone said the state and federal governments bought out the property owners and turned the land into a state park. Aerial photographs of the property from 1934 compared with those from 2006 show the impact people can have on the land, Picone said. They can be found on the UConn website magic.lib.uconn.edu.

The March 13 walk went through Quinnipiac River State Park. The park now offers recreational opportunities and has become habitat for a number of animals as wildlife reclaims the former

development. On past hikes, the group has found a favorite visitor that often gets studied in the park, the sawwhet owl, but didn’t see any

Sunday. Larry Fischer, a licensed owl bander, joined the hikers to explain a little about the owls and what he does.\ Wildlife experts band the small owls, weighing only about 2.5 ounces, to study their habits. While some claim the owls are migratory, Fischer said they actually lead a nomadic lifestyle. One owl he tagged was found a month later in Pennsylvania. “The most common way of banding is to catch them at night . . . I’ve been practicing catching them during the day because I’m more interested in where they are in the winter,” Fischer said while holding a fishing pole with a loose eye knot on the end, which he uses to pluck the owls from trees without hurting them. In the winter, the owls roost in evergreen trees to hide them from potential predators. They frequent Connecticut mostly during the winter months, but Fischer said a few actually nest in the state. Picone said the DEP has been taking an active role in

replenishing the evergreen species in the park to provide wintering habitat for the owls. Red cedars were abundant but other trees outgrew them. “They are what we call a pioneer plant because it is one of the first to grow in a young forest. It is critical wintering evergreen for the saw-whet owl,” Picone said. Walking along the path, Picone and Fischer offered insight into animal species. At one point, Fischer stopped to point out a new red-tailed hawk nest. He said hawks use evergreens in their nests because fresh evergreens let other animals know the nest is claimed and the sap serves as a natural disinfectant. One the trek back to the parking area, Patrick DeMichele of Hamden said it was his first time on the QRWA hike, and he was impressed. “It was excellent. You always pick up something new and interesting on these hikes,” DeMichele said. Richie Rathsack is a reporter for the Record-Journal, Meriden.

Police Continued from page 1 Of six applicants, five were interviewed and three were extended conditional offers, according to D’Errico. Names of the three potential hires have not yet been released. Due to recessionary times, North Haven decision-makers had frozen local police department vacancies left in 2010 by 31-year veteran Sgt. Robert Onofrio and 13-year veteran Marc Fasano. Cut by New Haven, officers who possess years of professional experience could represent savings for North Haven — the town will avoid paying for a 22-week police academy course and 13 weeks of field training for each individual. In bypassing academy payments and overtime charges, D’Errico estimated, the town could save approximately $130,000 to $150,000. “Christmas came early for North Haven this year,” he said March 14. “It’s a win-win situation.” DiCarlo agreed. “It benefits everybody,” he said. “They become employed, and we don’t have to send them out to the academy. We will be putting them through abbreviated field training.” North Haven could offer the men better salaries. “I think they were making around $38,000 in New Haven,” D’Errico said. “Here, they will be making about $8,000 more. And we have a good pension here. They had defined pensions in New Haven.” “I think we got three fine gentlemen,” he added. “It was such a hard decision to choose among the five men we interviewed — all qualified for the position.” Safety Since freezing staff, North Haven police department personnel have had to work overtime hours to fill out shifts. “It directly affected our patrol division,” DiCarlo said. “We have to have additional patrol fills. We can only run short-staffed so

much.” Bringing in additional officers would enhance town safety. “This will keep everyone fresher,” D’Errico said. “The guys already here have been putting in a lot of overtime hours. And we can send officers out to supervise roadwork more easily.” Under less strain, completely-stocked patrols could maintain consistent coverage of a still-expanding town hotspot, Universal Drive. “That’s now a regular stop for our patrols,” D’Errico said. “We’ve got to fully patrol that area on every shift. We’ve always got to man it.” “I certainly believe in town safety, as does the chief and First Selectman [Michael Freda],” D’Errico added. “The First Selectman was behind us for this.” DiCarlo had expected his hiring freeze to end in lateJune. Now, experienced officers could significantly expedite staffing processes. “If we filled those positions with new recruits, we would not have been able to get them into the state academy until July,” DiCarlo said. “That’s a 22-week course. With field training, that’s 35 weeks — that would have taken us into 2012.” “It will only take a couple of weeks to do this,” he added of bringing on the formerNew Haven officers. “Assuming all three pass their tests, I expect to get them on board by early April.” Dissimilarities between protecting North Haven and New Haven will be negligible, according to DiCarlo. “Of course, there is a difference – urban area versus suburban,” he said. “There is a much higher shooting and homicide rate in New Haven than in places like North Haven, Wallingford and Cheshire. But the basic concepts of policing are the same.” “Police work is policing — the laws are not any different in North Haven,” he added. “I am looking for them to have a very easy transition into working here.”

CitizenOpinion Letters to the Editor

Thanks and remembrance

To the editor: I write this thank you on behalf of my family on this one-year anniversary of the passing of Lorraine Zurolo Nuzzo, my sister. This past year has been a very, very difficult one. We have all struggled and are still struggling, but through the year I have felt my sister around me, guiding me. Nothing will ever be the same, but we still have a bond as sisters that will never end. To Steve, you were there for her, by her side, loving and helping her. You will always be a part of our family, as well as your children. She was so happy to have you in her life. You are the reason I still have faith that there are good people in this world, as well as many other people that showed care for her. A

Commentary

note of gratitude to those people, from her co-workers, to friends of hers, to friends and relatives of the Zurolo family. Right from the beginning, we were overwhelmed at how generous people were to her, and some that still are there for our family. All these people have truly shown great love and care for Lorraine, because Lorraine has always had a good heart and cared for people. Thanks to all who respected us during the grieving process. It was really had to watch a smart, active woman slowly being overcome by cancer, but she never gave up. Lorraine always looked beautiful, always had a smile, and had hope right to the end. Lorraine is truly a role model. I will always be proud of my dear, sweet sister, who is no an angel in Heaven. Judith Bouffard North Haven

Driving up taxes An editorial by the RecordJournal in Meriden: While most tax increases proposed by Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy are necessary in combating the state’s massive deficit, he should consider applying brakes on some hitched to automobiles. Malloy has suggested an extra three percent tax on vehicles valued over $50,000, and elimination of Connecticut’s sales tax trade-in allowance. The latter would translate into a distinct disincentive for would-be car-buyers — so much so that dealers struggling to recover from the Great Recession would be dealt a painful economic punch below the belt of bottom lines. Consumers are taxed on cost differential between

trade-in and acquired vehicles. Should Malloy’s measure pass, residents would instead owe state taxes based solely on the new automobile’s full purchase price. Given a six percent levy, for example, someone with a $10,000 trade-in allowance toward a $20,000 new car purchase would pay $1,200 instead of $600 to state coffers

— for many, a deal-breaker. Understandably, autodealers are less than enthusiastic for numerous reasons. Without such savings, a major inducement for prospective buyers is erased. Malloy’s adjustment could prove a financial roadblock in final deals (especially in a See Taxes, next page

New England Family Genealogy

An Ounce of Prevention Feet firmly planted By Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH

The importance of a sturdy, well-fitting shoe is underestimated. While it may be difficult to find data on the relationship between “the shoe” and broken bones, it is known, from word-of-mouth reports, that the wrong foot gear can lead to falls. You need to have your feet firmly planted on the ground to prevent falls. Shoes should be chosen for comfort and function, not for style. The wrong shoe can cause broken bones that can put you out of commission for a short while or longer. In the elderly, a broken hip may never allow you to return to your previous functioning level, and has sent many elderly persons to nursing homes. Examples of shoes that can cause problems include those with thick, plush and/or spongy soles that can easily throw a person off balance (especially in the elderly) if they “stick” or grab carpeting. Thin, hard, non-skid soles have been shown to provide the best balance. Be sure to check such soles — if they are polished smooth, rough them

fragile and still-recovering economy), deterring circumspect purchasers from sales showrooms. Potential customers may delay spending, target cheaper options or travel over Connecticut’s borders, where trade-in allowances remain. Supportive evidence can be found in New England. Adopted in Maine, similar tax changes were eventually repealed after lawmakers discovered that 25 percent of shoppers were either holding back or selecting less-expensive models. In a vulnerable economic time, tinkering too much

up with sand paper to avoid slips and skids. For safety, shoes should always be fastened. Slip-ons (the kind with no back, sometimes called mules) are a popular style right now. However, they are a very poor choice for those with balance issues and for senior citizens. It is very easy for your foot to slip out of the shoe and cause you to trip and fall or twist your ankle. And for goodness sake, forego fashion when there is snow and ice on the ground. A functional pair of snow boots is highly recommended. (Change to a more fashionable shoe when you reach your destination.) The wrong shoes can contribute to maladies, such as foot aches and pains. Although most foot problems are not life-threatening, feet that hurt can ruin your day and can be disabling. Shoes should have room for the toes. Shoes should be lightweight and supportive. Shoes do not need to be expensive to be properly fitting and comfortable. Most foot problems are relatively easy to correct, or can even be prevented. The four basic “steps” for foot health are: Wear shoes that fit well with firm soles and soft, roomy toe space; provide regular exercise for your feet, such as walking;

keep your feet clean and dry; and help tender spots to heal by using pads, cushions or heel cup. If you have a sore or injury on foot, do not let it go untreated. Keep it clean and make sure it heals. If it does not get better on its own, seek medical help. Diabetics need to pay special attention to their feet. Sores that do not heal can lead to major health problems. Since the foot is a complex structure of 26 bones, 33 joints, and a complicated series of tendons, muscles and ligaments, numerous target points are open for trouble. There can be many reasons for foot pain, although most often, the pain is due to one of seven common foot problems. They are corns and calluses, bunions, ingrown toenails, hammertoes, heel pain (heel spurs), fallen arches, Plantar fasciitis, or Morton’s neuroma. Each condition has different symptoms and treatment. Other foot problems that are not related to skeletal problems include Athlete’s foot, warts, blisters and fungus. Who should you consult for trouble with your feet? Doctors usually refer people to either an orthopedist or a podiatrist. An orthopedist is a medical doctor who diag-

with one of America’s largest markets amounts to fiscal foolishness. Members of the Connecticut Automobile Retailers Association predict hundreds of jobs lost at 245 dealerships statewide. Moreover, industry-related establishments could suffer business loss. Some may have difficulty agreeing with Malloy’s additional three percent levy on $50,000-plus vehicles. Still, individuals able to afford luxurious vehicles can probably manage this emolument. It’s likely, though, that affluent citizens may cross state lines to circumvent taxes (negatively impacting high-end dealers and Connecticut business, in gener-

al). Recent saber-rattling on Capitol Hill has involved possible dissolution of U.S. mortgage interest deductions for home-buyers — a longstanding stimulus influencing affordability. Losing such an important incentive could cripple housing markets in a fashion akin to Malloy’s auto sales tax plan. While inventive revenuegenerating measures are needed to mitigate Connecticut’s daunting deficit, ending tax trade-in allowances could do more harm than good. We urge contemplation of every alternative before discarding this valuable procommerce, pro-jobs, pro-consumer measure.

Time for Taxes Don’t become an April fool By Iris Rivera, Social Security Administration, New Haven District Being the butt of an April fool’s joke is fine when it’s good-natured fun. But no one wants to fall victim to a scam artist or identity thief. You may think you’re safe simply by not carrying your Social Security card with you and not providing your personal information over the Internet or by email. But scam artists have become shrewd. First of all, never reply to an email claiming to be from Social Security and asking for your Social Security number or personal information. Identity theft is one of the fastest-growing crimes in America. If you think you’ve been the victim of an identity thief, you should contact the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/idtheft. Or, you can call 1-877-IDTHEFT (1877-438-4338); TTY 1-866-6534261. Some people who receive Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are often victimized by misleading advertisers. Often, these companies offer Social Security services for a fee, even though the same services are available directly from Social Security free of

charge. These services include: - Getting a corrected Social Security card showing a bride’s married name - Replacing a lost Social Security card - Obtaining a Social Security Statement - Securing a Social Security number for a child Some direct scammers may suggest that Social Security is in dire financial shape and that people risk losing their Social Security or Medicare benefits unless they send a contribution or membership fee to the advertiser. If you receive or see what you believe is misleading advertising for Social Security services, send the complete mailing, including the envelope, to: Office of the Inspector General, Fraud Hotline, Social Security Administration, P.O. Box 17768, Baltimore, MD 21235. Also, advise your State’s attorney general or consumer affairs office and the Better Business Bureau. Learn more about identity theft at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10064.html. Read about misleading advertising at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10005.htm l.

Business Continued from page 5 added. Some past employees are stand-up comedienne Lisa Lampanelli, former KC101 disc jockey and radio host Kelly Nash, Roberta Deluca, Patty Pino and Jimmy Hoskinson, and the mayor of East Haven April Capone. They all worked together and formed lasting friendships, and some keep in touch on a regular basis. Recalled Capone, “I was 20 years old when I started working here for the summer during college, and John 1184951

Trousdale was my instructor for the training program. Every new employee goes through a training program that is very beneficial.” “It was a great job, a lot of fun, met terrific people, and I became part of an extended family. The job helped me with my speaking skills which are an essential part of my job as mayor. I still keep in touch and visit Joy, Jason, and Pat at the office when I can,” she added.

who were running it,” he said. “That commitment to making the customers happy no matter what was very impressive, and is a key component to the success of this business.” “It’s awesome to see Jason, Joy, and some of the folks who were part of that all star team continue to grow RentA-DJ today!” he added. Dedication, commitment, creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, service, fond memories and the desire to entertain and bring music into the lives of people of all ages at various functions, events, and occasions have given Rent-A-DJ its own special place in the business com-

munity. “In the future, our challenge is to continue to adapt to changing technology, working with equipment that is smaller and lighter, modernize and stay updated with advertising, and providing all types of music for all age groups,” said Heintz. “We look forward to enter-

She received the Lodge Elk of the Year award in 2009 and has received Grand Lodge citations for exemplary service. She has chaired and served on numerous committees, including the Lodge Americanism Committee and has organized many Lodge ceremonies including North Haven and Hamden Flag Day events. Karen has tirelessly organized many Lodge fundraisers to benefit veterans, youth and local charities. Karen has B.S degree from Southern Connecticut State University and a MBA from University of New Haven. Karen has worked for Stop and Shop for 40 years and is the floral manager at the Putnam Place location, in Hamden. She is the union steward for Local 919. She has been married to her husband, Brian for 35 years. They have a son James and soon to be daughter in-law Katie Shanley. She loves to travel and has organized many trips for the Elks. Karen and all of the newly elected Elks officers will be installed at a ceremony open to the public on Friday, April 1, at 6:30 in the Elks Lodge at 175 School St., Hamden. The Hamden Elks are dedicated to youth programs, patriotism and service to hospitalized veterans, as well as national and local charities. The Hamden Lodge is currently celebrating their 50th year serving the communities of Hamden and North Haven.

Freda Continued from page 3 fine gentleman. I have the utmost respect for him.” Last municipal election, Freda defeated former-First Selectman and Democratic candidate Janet McCarty. Although North Haven’s DTC has yet to announce their challenger for November’s ballot, multiple candidates are under consideration. “We have a couple of people posturing,” Criscuolo said. “They just don’t want to come forward publicly yet.” “I expect us to have a candidate by mid-April,” he added.

Michael Freda fundraiser The Committee to Re-Elect Mike Freda as North Haven’s First Selectman is pleased to announce that a fund raising event will be held. The gala will take place on Tuesday, April 12, at Fantasia banquet hall, 404 Washington Ave., North Haven, from 5 to 8 p.m. Tickets may be purchased by calling Rose Ann Warden at (203) 530-8275. In his first two years of office, North Haven’s first selectman has concentrated on strengthening the Town’s financial position, growing its grand list and opening the doors of government, while continuing to provide the North Haven community with reliable and responsible town services and an outstanding educational system. Mr. Freda, who announced his intention to seek re-election last week, is expected to be nominated unanimously by the North Haven Republican Town Committee in July, along with an entire slate of qualified, experienced and enthusiastic officials. Election Day is Nov. 8, 2011.
