Incoming superintendent considers new job By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

April 4 marks the first day of work for North Haven’s new superintendent, Dr. Robert D. Cronin. He replaces former headof-schools Sara-Jane R. Querfeld, who stepped down last year to accept an administrative education job in her hometown of North Branford. Since 2006, Cronin had been superintendent of Region 14, which encompasses Beth-

Recently, Cronin spoke with The Citizen about overseeing North Haven’s school district, including his take on bullies, budgets, the town’s wellness policy, communicating with parents and his starting salary.

Local politicians discuss state budget, new taxes By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen North Haven Senator Len Fasano and State Representative David Yaccarino, both Republicans, are concerned about spending and new taxes in Democrat Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s proposed state budget. “All those added taxes could stifle the upswing in the economy,” Yaccarino said before a packed audience at a March 28 public forum he hosted with Fasano in Memorial Library to discuss Malloy’s fiscal ideas. “We’re not here to rip apart Governor Malloy’s budget,” Fasano said, “We’re here to say what it is.” “The point of this is to let you know what’s happening with the budget,” he added. “To get to the budget numbers we need is going to cause some cuts, and some of those cuts are going to be uncomfortable.” See Local, page 10

Reader’s commentary: face to face with Joshua Komisarjevsky By Chris Peterson

This past week you probably read about two jurors in the Cheshire Home Invasion trial who were dismissed because of a challenge from the defense. What you might find interesting is that I was one of them. Yes, I came face to face with Joshua Komisarjevsky. I was summoned for jury duty on March 23rd in New Haven. As I walked into the jury room, the buzz in the room is that they would be doing selection for the “Cheshire Case.” A lot of people in the room didn’t want to get selected, and a couple did. I had been lucky with my past jury selection experience. I had been called, but never made it beyond the

room to be interviewed. So I prepared myself for a long day. I brought my laptop, some movies, a book and snacks. I was fully prepared to sit all day doing nothing. However, ten minutes into “Iron Man 2,” I was called to be “voir dire,” or interviewed, by the attorneys to possibly sit on the jury. We were brought into the courtroom. I didn’t recognize who the defendant was — all I was told was that we would be questioned for a criminal trial. As the judge began to speak, he identified the defendant as Joshua Komisarjevsky — you could easily see a reaction from several of the potential jurors. To be honest, I was

Fundraiser to assist family of fallen paramedic By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

To benefit a fallen paramedic’s family, employees of multiple North Haven health service providers will host a ziti dinner and raffle. Scott Ingraham, a paramedic supervisor for Nelson Ambulance who recently passed away at 42 years of age, left behind his wife Rose, a Nelson Ambulance EMT and call representative, and three kids between the ages of 17 and 21. “He was a go-to kind of fel-

low,” said Nelson Ambulance Director of Operations Denise Markavich of Ingraham. “He really blended in with the family environment here that we try to pursue. He brought a sense of community to work everyday. It was too early for him to go.” Ingraham’s family will receive money raised from an April 7 ziti dinner fundraiser, which will be held at North Haven’s Fantasia Wedding and Banquet Facility, 404 Washington Ave. from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. “We’re trying very hard to

support his family and young wife monetarily, that’s out goal with this dinner,” Markavich said. Dinner tickets for $20 can be purchased online at A raffle, organized in part by Montowese Health and Rehab center worker Laurie Laffin, will include New York Yankee tickets donated by North Haven’s police department, a watch donated by Arnold’s Jewelers and additional gift certificates and items. Nelson Ambulance and Montowese Health and Rehab are both operated by the Khan family, who has special reason to recognize Ingraham. Seven years ago, Farooq Khan, father of Nelson Ambulance president Saleem Khan, collapsed within Montowese Health and Rehab. “Scott was the first respon-

der on scene,” said Nelson Ambulance Client Relations Director Mark LeSage. “He put a heart monitor on Sal’s father and put a breathing tube down his throat. He saved Sal’s father’s life.” “Scott has always had a special place in Sal’s heart,” LeSage added. After decades of employment for other medical providers, Ingraham worked for Nelson Ambulance for nine months before his death. “He was a great person,” Lesage said. “He was always willing to help out.” “We want to raise money to help Rose cover the cost of living and raising her kids,” he added. Besides generating fi-

nances, Nelson Ambulance branch operations manager Andrew Konspore believed the April 7 event could illustrate Ingraham’s positive impact on others. “We’d also like to give the family an idea of how loved and respected Scott was in the community,” Konspore said. “He was a very good medic, a very good family man, and loved his family and children very much.” Nelson Ambulance is also accepting donations for Ingraham’s family online at, or in person at the Nelcon Mobil Station at 302 Maple Ave. For more information, contact Lesage at (203) 215-3976.

Cops: man in park strangled himself By Dan Ivers Special to the North Haven Citizen

The man whose body was found in Wharton Brook State Park near the Wallingford town line last week died of self strangulation, state police said. The cause of death was determined by the office of the chief state’s medical examiner. Police identified the man as 41-year-old North Haven resident Anthony Piccirillo. Piccirillo’s body was discovered by a North Haven woman walking her dog in the state park early Tuesday morning. The woman noticed what appeared to be an unresponsive man in a black Honda Ridgeline truck.


Library Snapshot

North Haven and state police arrived on scene and later deemed the death suspicious, pending the results of an autopsy. Police said Tuesday they had not ruled out suicide as the cause of death after the initial investigation, and they said that the body had suffered “trauma,” though they declined to elaborate at the time. Initial reports of a body and the heavy police presence in the park attracted members of the statewide media due to the search for a missing 13-year-old girl from Orange, but police said there was no connection between the cases. The girl was found safe Wednesday. Dan Ivers reports for the Record-Journal, Meriden.

On Thursday, April 13, libraries all over Connecticut, including the North Haven Memorial Library, will be taking a ‘snapshot’ — collecting information to capture the impact that Connecticut libraries have on their communities on a typical day. Last year, on Connecticut’s first Snapshot Day, more than 80,600 people visited Connecticut libraries; people borrowed nearly 100,000 books, DVDs and other materials; close to 13,000 people used computers at their library; nearly 10,000 people attended a program or class at a library; 113,000 people visited Connecticut library websites. Visit the North Haven Memorial Library on April 13 and become a part of Snapshot Day 2011.

ganization’s goal is to deliver employment solutions to those without employment. “Retraining is so important, especially in today’s job force, because the world has changed and employees need to learn new strategies and techniques,” said Fort. “It still is a lagging economy, and job seeking is very challenging, competitive and uncertain, but determination and perseverance along with an eye catching resume, good networking and the willingness to learn new skills are keys to securing employment.” Attendees varied in ages,

experience and professions, including management, banking, engineering, computer technology, retail, administration, medical, teaching and film. The loss of jobs were a result of a faltering economy, along with businesses closing down, moving out of state, downsizing, or corporate takeovers or merging of companies, and small businesses struggling and

Over two dozen job seekers attended a free, all-day re-employment workshop hosted by First Selectman Michael Freda, Workforce Alliance and Collins Group at North Haven’s Town Hall. Led by Laura Collins of Guilford’s Collins Group, a human resources consulting firm, North Haven’s workshop was an interactive experience for job seekers, who have been out of employment for extended periods of time. “Today, seventy percent of jobs come from jobs not posted or created yet, but from people you know or people who know of you,” Collins said. “People are not getting jobs from ads, or putting resumes online, but from networking because other people can vouch for your character or they know your talents and skills.” “At one time I was on one side of the desk interviewing people and, then one day I

found myself on the other side of the desk. I was out of work for over a year and I know what every person who is unemployed is going through,” she added. “Always be open to all possibilities, don’t be afraid to broaden your skills and take on new challenges as long as you feel comfortable. Get your foot in the door, and show them you are eager to work, and when a new position is posted then apply or network out.” Robert Fort, marketing director for Workforce Alliance of New Haven, explained that his nonprofit or-

Students and seniors build generational bridges By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Student members of North Haven Middle School’s community service club S.M.Y.L.E spent an educational afternoon at the Joyce C. Budrow Senior Center on March 16. Together, residents of all generations shared conversation over lunch. “It’s an intergenerational thing,” said Judy Amarone, senior center manager. “The seniors love the kids. They exchange ideas.” “It’s a learning experi-

ence,” Amarone added. “The seniors talk to the kids about how and where they were at that age. And the kids are very attentive.”

Friday, April 1, 2011 — The North Haven Citizen

Cronin Continued from page 1

Fashion show at Sacred Heart

Haven classrooms? A: I think that with everything we need to be balanced. To allow parties in school that only consist of sweets is not the right thing to do. At the same time, I don’t believe it’d be fair to say that you can never have something sweet, either. We have to work to come up with a policy that is reasonable. That might necessitate that people on both sides give up a little, but it is important to avoid extremes. Q: How will you continue North Haven’s recent successful trends on state and federal standardized tests? A: I think that I’ve got a fairly extensive background in curriculum — I do bring that. I’ve spent a lot of time in the last few years both providing and attending professional development on what are the best instructional practices. I will look at what we know in terms of curriculum and instruction, and what works best day-to-day. From that, I can compare what is helping, and have conversations with staff about that. Q: How will you communicate with school staff and lo-

cal parents? A: I try to make it my business to be in schools regularly. I try to visit and spend time in at least one school per day, so that I can get in classrooms and connect with teachers. I attend staff meetings when I’m invited or have something that I want to present. Also, in the past, I have hosted after-school, quarterly staff meetings, which are voluntary, for teachers who have any ideas or issues they want me to

consider. I make it a point to communicate with parents in writing every month. Parents can expect to receive something from me about the district, maybe a mininewsletter or an e-blast. With the youngest students, we might send home hard copies. I also go to PTA meetings. I am very much looking forward to working with the district.


Q: What attracted you to North Haven? A: I liked size of the district, and what I discerned as the values and priorities of its Board of Education. They really try to make decisions based on what’s in the best interest of students. Everyone in this town takes great pride in their schools, and are continually trying to make them better. I am very much looking forward to getting to know the community and school district. Q: What are you thoughts on North Haven’s education budget? A: I have studied this year’s current budget and the proposals for next year’s budget. From what I can discern, people here have tried to be very reasonable in developing the education budget and are going to keep education on the positive path. At the same time, the education budget appears to be sensitive to the economic challenges of the community, the economic challenges of all the families and individuals. Q: In town meetings and local blogs, one recent discussion topic has been your starting annual salary of $165,000. What is your response? A: When I negotiated my salary with the Board of Education, we tried to be fair.

We looked at what is happening in districts of comparable size, what superintendents are earning in those similar reference groups with similar demographics. We tried to bring all those factors into play and tried to be reasonable. Q: How will you address bullying? A: The problem of bullying needs to be investigated and dealt with swiftly and firmly. Bullying of any kind cannot be allowed. There needs to be a pretty thorough investigation when reports come in. Typically, at the school building-level, investigations would be done by the administrator. They would be talking to both the bully and the student who claims to have been bullied, and any others who might have witnessed some sort of problem. The administrators would talk with the parents of both the bully and the student who claims to have been bullied, and would let them know what the investigation has shown. After that, we would rely upon board policy in terms of what punishment could be called for. In past cases, I have seen consequences ranging from missing recess for some time through suspension. Clearly, the message has to be sent that this will not be tolerated. Q: What is your take on a school district’s wellness policy, as in what foods are and are not allowed into North

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, April 1, 2011

Local Continued from page 1

If passed, Malloy’s twoyear budget would attempt closure of a projected $3.2 billion deficit in fiscal year 201112 with creation of numerous taxes on various services, including haircuts, car washes, pet grooming and drugs. Additionally, Connecticut’s sales tax would rise to 6.35 percent. “After you read this, you will need to go buy Excedrin for your headache, but there will be a tax on that, too,” Yaccarino said. “This really hits at the heart of the middle class.” North Haven Democratic Town Committee chairman Peter Criscuolo, who was unable to attend Monday’s meeting, backed Malloy’s budget. “I know what Republicans say, that we should cut spending. That sounds nice, but it’s not practical,” Criscuolo said March 29. “We don’t want to knock everyone out of jobs.” “I’m a taxpayer, and I don’t want taxes to go up, either,” Criscuolo continued. “But, unfortunately, sometimes they have to go up.”

Numerous attendants listen to state politicians at the March 28 budget informational. Government expenditures were also examined by North Haven’s Republican state politicians, who displayed a PowerPoint slide which juxtaposed Connecticut’s state spending, inflation and population growth. Since 1987, Fasano and Yaccarino claimed on their graph, state population increased by nine percent, inflation by 90.8 percent and government costs

by 287.5 percent. “You can see how our budget has really outpaced, considerably, the population, as well as inflation,” Fasano said. In 1987, Fasano and Yaccarino stated, Connecticut spent $1,509 per citizen — in 2011, the stat jumped to $5,354 per person. On another slide, Fasano and Yaccarino outlined Con-




necticut’s cost of commerce and residence, which they alleged included the second highest unfunded pension liability per capita, fourth highest state debt per capita, second highest state gas taxes, second highest electricity cost and fifth highest cost of doing business. “That’s the cost to stay in Connecticut,” Fasano said. “We have to keep this in mind. We want people to stay in the state. We’ve got to give them a reason to stay.” Malloy’s proposal would represent exponential budget growth, Fasano and Yaccarino said, with a $19.2 billion budget in 2011, $19.7 billion in 2012 and $20.2 billion in 2013. “Each year, the budget increases,” Yaccarino said. “If this budget passes, we would be in the same problem, we believe, in two years. We do not fix our problem.” “If the government, or anyone, is serious about this budget, we cannot go up by another billion dollars,” he added. An average family making $120,000 per year with two kids would pay approximately $1,090 extra per year to Connecticut under Malloy’s measures, Fasano and Yaccarino claimed. Earning $40,000 a year, a single mother with two kids would be charged an additional $786.65 every year, they added.

Yaccarino wanted more foresight prior to financial action. “I’ve been working in business myself for the last 30-plus years, and I know you need to have a long-term vision,” he said. “If you’re paying your bills, paying down your debt, if you can get that debt down, then you can create programs.” Alternative strategies to generate savings could include closure of Middletown’s River View Hospital, Fasano said, along with contracting out Bradley Airport jobs, salary cuts for state legislators and the elimination of Connecticut’s citizen election fund. “Government is extraordinarily wasteful,” he added. Regardless of residents’ political preferences, Fasano called for better public knowledge of Connecticut’s issues. “The worst thing you can be is an uniformed voter,” he said. “Find out how your legislators vote. Get engaged with them. If they think you’re not watching them, then they will think nobody cares. You have to get active. You have to understand what’s happening.” Fasano will hold similar forums in additional towns which he represents, visiting East Haven’s senior center, 91 Taylor Ave., on April 12 at 6:30 p.m., and Wallingford’s library, 200 North Main St., on April 28 at 6 p.m.

Trial Continued from page 1

amazed. Here, sitting no more then ten feet from me, was someone who had committed a widely-known, vicious crime. He looked more like a college student than a monster. He was cleanly shaven, had a new haircut and a shirt and tie. He sat there calmly and stoically. As we called our attendance, he glanced over to us a couple of times. This was unnerving for a couple of the jurors. After the introductions, several people were excused because they knew or had relationships with some of those involved with the trial. Others were later excused for hardships. Unfortunately, I didn’t fall under any of those categories. I was then told that I would have to come back the next day to be questioned by attorneys. When I came back the next day, I was questioned by both the prosecution and the defense. I was under oath, so I talked about how I could be partial, adding that I supported the death penalty, but it wasn’t a blanket support. I’m sure I said things that both sides liked and disliked to hear. What made me nervous was that both Joshua Komisarjevsky and Dr. William Petit were in the room, staring right at me. I tried not to look at either one of them, but I found myself at times making eye contact with both, especially Komisarjevsky.

dered an 11-year-old girl hours after he put his own six-year-old girl to bed. It boggles my mind. There were moments where we stared at each other, Komisarjevsky and I — both of us had been adopted, and both lived completely

different lives. I was asked to wait in another room while the lawyers talked about whether or not they wanted me. From the looks of the article in the papers, the prosecution wanted me on the jury, but the defense

used one of their 40 challenges to block me. I can’t say that I’m not relieved. Chris Peterson writes The North Haven Way, a longstanding Republican blog. Formerly a North Haven resident, Peterson now resides in Hamden.

Collins Group are collaborating with us in helping people displaced without jobs and unemployed to find new directions and acquire new ideas about employment.” “Today’s free workshop is an opportunity to provide those in attendance with hope and a concrete foundation to secure employment,” he added. Attendees engaged in group discussion, group work, role play, watched a power point presentation, and learned about job networking and updating resumes, and enjoyed a delicious lunch courtesy of Stellato’s Deli & Catering. “We hosted this workshop because there are so many people in the suburbs who have been unemployed for so long that they are having difficulties making car payments, paying mortgages and household expenses, paying for children’s tuition and activity fees, and daily expenses,” Fort said. “This is a reimagining and a structural workshop, and our hope is that people will leave here today with new ideas and new perspectives on what they want to do.” Collins offered advice on proper resume construction.

“You need to have a resume that grab’s someone’s attention and explains who you are and what it is you do that even a twelve year old understands what you do,” she said. Two types of resumes, Collins explained, are the chronological resume, that is more effective and grabs the attention of human resource people, and the functional resume, that catches the eye of the person looking to fill a specific job. Personal interests and skills, volunteer work, additional education like certification and degrees, and the ability to multi task capture the interviewer’s attention. Collins added that resumes need to reflect special skills and expertise in professional areas, and feature effective objectives with pop-up bullets to support the objective are essential. At the workshop’s end, Collins emphasized: a resume is solid back-up, always seek people out, engage people, be very clear what your objectives are, and always look your best, because a good appearance always makes for a good first impression. She also stressed the fact not to sit home and wait for the phone to ring, but to keep actively looking for employment and do volunteer work that is a good

source for networking. Attendants took away useful information. “My sister Juliann and I came today to get new ideas and learn how to update our resumes. Laura gave a wonderful and insightful workshop that was productive and beneficial,” said John Fuggi, part of the turnout. “This workshop was a great idea, and my sister and I are leaving with a positive direction and new thoughts about employment.” Above all else, Collins stressed, keep hope alive. “We’ve been doing these workshops for one year and there are many people out of work and struggling each day. This is a temporary economic setback but recovery and jobs are slowly coming back,” she said. “Unfortunately, we have a way to go and I encourage all who are job searching to treat their search as the number one daily plan, be determined, and never give up.” For more information, contact Workforce Alliance at 203-867-4030 or email or contact Collins Group at 203-453-5703 or email

The Pediatric Primary Care Center at the Hospital of Saint Raphael and students in the Quinnipiac University Physician Assistant Program hosted the Children’s Health and Literacy Fair on March 1, in the hospital’s cafeteria. More than 50 children’s books were distributed free at the event in honor of National Read Across America Day, along with information about hygiene, nutrition, safety and exercise. Each child attending the fair was read to by a Quinnipiac student and received a book bag and a new Dr. Seuss book. Items raffled off to the more than 200 attendees included book baskets, car seats, bike helmets, bikes and a Wii Sports video game.

sulfur to kill rodents, insects and weeds. By the fifteenth century, arsenic and mercury were commonly applied to crops. However, these “first generation” pesticides were highly toxic and often ineffective. Discovery of DDT in 1939 marked the beginning of the “pesticide era,” when chemical pesticides became pest management’s dominant form. DDT was widely used by farmers and others after World War II, because it was inexpensive, effective and easy to apply. But more and more pests became resistant to DDT, it destroyed many non-target insects, plants and animals — and its residue persisted. Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, published in 1962, eroded public confidence in DDT by pointing to damage it inflicted on the earth’s fragile ecosystem. Carson’s book helped to launch the environmental movement, and in 1972 the Environmental Protection Agency banned use of DDT in the United States. The chemical industry responded to mounting concerns about DDT by produc-

ing new classes of pesticides, which are still widely used in agriculture, in workplaces and homes, lawns and gardens. Today, over 16,000 pesticide products are marketed in America, and more than two million tons of pesticides are used world-wide each year — a fifty-fold increase since 1950. Those who support widespread use of pesticides argue that the products improve food quality, quantity and variety. They also insist that food Americans eat is safe, and that pesticides kill mosquitoes, rodents and other pests which transmit deadly diseases, cause serious allergic reactions and threaten our food supply. Moreover, they point out that all pesticides must be registered with the EPA and subjected to rigorous scientific testing for every possible use. Yet, it is clear that, despite ongoing government regulation, pesticides, which are designed to be toxic to living things, continue to pose risks to humans, pets and the enviSee Pesticides, next page

An Ounce of Prevention Getting enough sleep? V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH

Does the amount of sleep you get in a given night affect how you think, react and perform the next day? Most people would definitely connect lack of sleep with a decreased ability to perform tasks, concentrate and remember. Most people would also agree that they are “not as pleasant” as when they are rested. Studying sleep in the general population is difficult. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) recently analyzed data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) and found that one-third of US residents do not get enough sleep on a regular basis. Everyone has an occasional bad night’s sleep. But research is finding that chronic sleep deprivation has a cumulative effect on mental and physical well-being and can make chronic diseases worse. For example, a lack of sleep may result in an inability to keep blood sugar

ronment. A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has concluded that many Americans carry toxic pesticides in their bodies above established “acceptable thresholds.” In addition, evidence indicates that new classes of pesticides are often 10-40 times more toxic than DDT used in the 1940s. Many serious health problems, especially among infants and young children, have been linked to pesticides which accumulate in the body. Furthermore, pesticides kill large numbers of nontargeted species, such as birds and fish, and hundreds of insect and weed species have developed resistance to pesticides. Moreover, longterm effects of low-dose expo-

levels steady and produce a need for more insulin production. Restless sleep has also been linked to high blood pressure and heart problems. Solving sleep problems is not always easy, as there are many different causes for an inability to sleep. Three of the most common disorders are insomnia, sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome (RLS). Since the causes of sleep problems can differ, the solutions may be specific to the type of problem. For example, establishing a bedtime routine can often help those with insomnia. Sleep apnea needs to be evaluated as there are different types of this problem. Treatment can range from the use of prosthetics to surgery. Restless leg syndrome may be treated with medication. The CDC recommends some strategies for better sleep. They include: - Go to bed at the same time each night and get up at the same time each morning - Sleep in a quiet, dark room that is not too hot and not too cold - Avoid physical activity See Sleep, page 24

sure remain unclear. Likewise, an EPA-funded study concluded in 2005 that pesticides which were either restricted or banned for home use were still widely used on crops. Each one of us can — indeed, must — work to minimize the effects of pesticides on human health and the environment. We can do so by eating organically grown foods and by avoiding use of pesticides on our lawns and gardens and in our homes. In extreme cases of pesticide infestation, we can (as North Haven has done since the mid-1990s on all town property) employ Integrated Pest Management methods, which call for the use of the least toxic substances, and only as a last resort. Hugh Davis is on North Haven’s Conservation Commission.

Remember When: family and traditions By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen For centuries, people from all cultures have handed down their traditions, values and beliefs from one generation to another. Family has always been the core existence for future generations and family genealogies. For longtime-resident Lucy DeCicco, family is everything, and family traditions, values and beliefs are the glue that has held her relations together for generations. This is her story: “My parents Bartholemew and Lucia immigrated to this country from Italy and they brought with them their traditions, beliefs, and skills,” recalled DeCicco. “I was born in 1936 in New Haven, during the Great Depression and political unrest in Europe due to the rise of dictators and Fascist leaders like Hitler and Mussolini.” “We didn’t have much money or material possessions, but there was always food on the table, a roof over our heads, a warm bed to sleep in, and a lot of love in our house,” she added. DeCicco explained that she lived on Green Street across from Saint Michael’s Church and School. On Saturdays, she and her mother would clean the altar with other volunteers. Lucy and her brother Bartholemew Jr. attended Saint Michael’s School, where they received a strict Catholic education under the watchful eyes of the nuns. “The nuns were strict but we learned and religion always played an important part in our lives,” DeCicco said. “Since we lived across the street from church and school, we were never late for class or Mass on Sunday morning. We went home for lunch everyday and my mother greeted us in the kitchen with a nutritious meal.” “My mother was a wonderful cook and baker. She taught me how to make delicious pies, cakes, cookies, and meals that I still make today for my children and grandchildren,” she added. During the holidays, the DeCicco family had their own traditions. At Christmas, Lucy’s father would set up a nativity scene that took up almost an entire room. Lucy would hurry home from school to help with set design. Their statues came from Italy and the scenery was handmade with brown paper and color chalk. Later, Lucy’s brother replaced the chalk with spray paint. The DeCiccos also assisted with the setup of the nativity scene in church. During Holy Week, they would make palm crosses, attend the Stations of the Cross, and decorate Easter eggs. They did these activities together as a family. “After my husband Angelo and I were married and had a family of our own, we kept the traditions and practices that I did when I was a child,” DeCicco said. “When we moved to North Haven, we set up a nativity scene on the back porch that caught the attention of our friends and neighbors.

One year my picture with the nativity appeared in the local paper.” “We did things together, stood by each other, and we never went to bed mad,” she added. DeCicco and her family were also busy with volunteer work, helping others. Her husband was a Eucharistic minister and active at his parish, her daughter Bernadette was very involved volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House in New Haven. “My Bernadette loved children. She would have the neighborhood children come to her house and she would do arts and crafts with them. My daughter would let the children sit on the front porch and paint statues. When my Bernadette worked with kids, she became a kid herself,” recalled DeCicco. “Sadly, my Angelo died from cancer in 2004, and my daughter Bernadette died in 2004. Losing two family members one after the other was a double heart ache for my family and me.” DeCicco admits that it was the love of her family and her faith that helped her survive such loss. She also cherishes her beautiful memories and countless photographs neatly displayed in family photo albums. After her daughter died, DeCicco became a Eucharistic minister at Saint Barnabas Church, where she gives Communion during Mass on Sunday mornings. Following Mass, she visits and brings Holy Communion to residents at Oakview and Oakwoods Senior Housing. “The residents are always waiting for me with smiles on their faces. Many of them do not drive or are not able to get around so they appreciate my visits. When I leave them and return home, I feel happy and satisfaction from helping others,” said a sincere DeCicco. “When the pastor at Saint Barnabas, Father Hugh MacDonald, put the cross around my neck, I felt peaceful and the presence of my husband and daughter standing next to me on the altar. I truly believe family and faith have sustained me especially these past seven years.” DeCicco lives with her dog Chico, a Chocolate Labrador and Pointer that was named by her husband before he died. She keeps in touch with her son Angelo Jr., her daughter Janet and their spouses, Bernadette’s husband, and her four grandchildren. They always get together on the holidays and occasions, and everyone gathers at Lucy’s house for Christmas Eve, which has been a ritual for many years. “I am proud of my family and I love them very much. Family is everything to me and I am reminded of that everyday when I look at the plaque hanging on my wall between the kitchen and dining room that reads ‘Family Is Everything,’” DeCicco said. “The plaque was a gift from my Janet See Remember, page 24

shown that these products do not do much for sleep disorders. Such products include valerian, Alluna, Natrol Stress Complex, kava chews and melatonin. You may want to try valerian as it does not seem to be harmful, although most of the studies (not very well designed) do not point to sleep benefits. Further, remember that herbal supplements are not regulated. This can mean that you may get more or less of the active ingredient and long-term use and safety have not been studied. Melatonin may be useful in helping those prevent or overcome jet lag or those whose daily rhythm is out of sync. However, taking it at a wrong time could further

**LEGAL NOTICE** TOWN OF NORTH HAVEN TAX COLLECTOR'S OFFICE 2nd Half -- 2010 SEWER USE FEE BILLING The SECOND HALF of the 2010 Sewer Use Fee billing is due and payable April 1, 2011. Payments must be received by (or bear the U.S. Postal Service postmark dated no later than) May 2, 2011 to avoid penalty/interest. As of May 3, 2011, interest will accrue at the rate of 1½ % per month or fraction thereof (18% per year), on all unpaid Sewer Use fee billing balances, computed from the original due date for the second half, i.e. April 1, 2011. INTEREST CANNOT BE WAIVED. If any prior year Sewer Use fee billing or the first half of the 2010 Sewer Use fee billing is due, payments will be applied to the oldest outstanding bill first. Interest will always be paid first. Once the second half 2010 Sewer Use fee bill becomes delinquent, a minimum interest charge of $2.00 will be collected. Failure to receive a bill does not invalidate the Sewer Use fee bill. Please be advised, 2010 Sewer Use fee bills -- containing payment stubs for both the first and second half, where applicable -- were mailed in October 2010; there will be no separate mailing for the second half billing. The Tax Collector's office in Memorial Town Hall is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (except legal holidays).
