Play ball! Max Sinoway Baseball League opens season

Citizen photo by Kevin Pataky

Sam Silengo, 92, co-founder of the Max Sinoway league, is given the ball from his ceremonial first pitch on Saturday by Max Sinoway, the great-grandson of the league’s other co-founder. By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

“Play ball!” said North Haven Little League President John MacDonnell before hundreds of eager kids in a palette of uniforms on Saturday, at the culmination of opening day festivities which featured a parade and a celebration of the league’s history. Earlier, the players and coaches marched to the opening ceremony on Montowese field four, led in parade by the North Haven Fife and Drum Corps and the North East Volunteer Fire

Department Color Guard. The lengthy and colorful procession snaked through and around the other fields, absorbing additional teams as it made its way between hundreds of cheering parents and supporters. The opening day parade was the first in 15 years, according to league vice-president Mike Pepe, who added that the league’s executives wanted to put on a “big event” to brighten moods in the down economy. The league currently includes 900 kids, boys and girls ages five to 18, split into 40 teams in six levels from t-

ball to seniors, Pepe said, with each team fielding 12 kids and three coaches. Pepe, a former little leaguer himself, estimated the opening day’s parade to have been made up of 600 kids and 30plus teams. MacDonnell’s edict began the 2009 season of Max Sinoway Baseball only after Sam Silengo, 92, co-founder of the league in 1951 with Sinoway, tossed the ceremonial first pitch to Max Sinoway, the aptly-named great-grandson of the titular originator.

Community Conversation zooms in on early childhood education By Paul Colella Special to the Citizen As the familiar saying goes, “It takes a village to raise a child.” In today’s ever changing and demanding society, parents are finding it more and more challenging to meet the needs of their children, specifically when it comes to education. All parents want their children to succeed, but they are finding themselves faced with four commonly raised questions: what is developmentally appropriate, what resources are available, what should children know upon entering kindergarten, and who is responsible for taking charge of a child’s education? This past Monday night residents participated in a special program called Community Conversation at the North Haven High School. The participants were from various backgrounds and represented different aspects of the community. They were selected by invitation from a steering committee who was involved with the event. “The Community Conversation is a grant program sponsored by the William Caspar Graustein Foundation in New Haven.

event is held all over the state,” said Gerardo Sorkin, director of North Haven community services and recreation. “We submitted a grant and were awarded the funding and additional money as well.” This is the second time that North Haven is sponsoring this event. The first one was in 1999 and was called “Raising children in a Diverse Society.” It was successful and well received, Sorkin said. Besides the William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund and Foundation, other sponsors included the North Haven public schools, the North Haven library, Community Mediation of New Haven, North Haven PTA Council, Area Cooperative Education Services (ACES), North Haven Education Foundation, the North Haven Board of Education, and the town’s Community Services department. This year’s theme was “The Future of Our Community, The Future of Our Young Children, and Why the Early Years Matter.” The program started at 5 p.m. and included dinner provided by Demir’s Restaurant.

Jared Andrew Studio presents ‘Guys and Dolls Jr.’ on Broadway By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Broadway: the location for North Haven’s Jared Andrew Studio for the Performing Arts’ youth production of “Guys and Dolls Jr.” this May. Of course, this Broadway extends from State Street to Church Street, instead of running parallel to the Hudson River. However, the abridged

adaptation of the classic musical put on by the children’s theater will have all the same character and charm as the Manhattan version. The play, which follows two New York gamblers as they attempt to go straight for love, will open May 5 at the old firehouse at 26 Broadway, and will run for 10 performances through May 17. The cast includes 45 kids, aged 5 to 18, according to co-producer Jared Andrew. The play has been double cast, meaning that parts will alternate actors on different nights. The kids have the option to appear in both productions – a lead in one performance may be a backup dancer in the next. “It keeps kids busy and gives them a chance to do what they love,” Andrew said of the casting decision.

The kids have been rehearsing for three months, Andrew said, with upwards of 15 hours of practice a week. The abridged, “juniorversion” of “Guys and Dolls” will run an hour and a half with intermission. The play will feature acting, singing, and dancing and is only the second production of Andrew’s children’s theater after a previous production of “School House Rock” songs. Andrew would like to stage five children’s productions a year in addition to adult performances, as he has enjoyed the process. “The kids love it,” the co-producer said, “and I have learned a lot from them.” Andrew, who runs his studio with partner Patrick Laffin, said that the children’s theater came to him in an “epiphany” when giving lessons to a gifted child vocalist.

Part of the “Guys and Dolls Jr.” cast rehearsed a scene including the song and dance to “Bushel and a Peck” this week at the Jared Andrew Studio on Broadway. The show opens on May 5. “I realized that there were not enough places where you could put talented kids on stage,” he said. The performance will take

place upstairs in the firehouse in a “black box” setting. In this mode of theater,

Broadway Continued from page 4 the audience surrounds the stage, which is on a similar level as the audience creating a more intimate feeling, Andrew said. On a historical note, the production will mark the first show in the old firehouse in over 75 years, according to Andrew. The firehouse, which once held town dances and performances in

a small auditorium, has since been converted into office space. Andrew had been staging plays on High Lane, and will continue to do so, but decided to put on small, youth plays upstairs in the firehouse after he relocated his offices to the Broadway address. “Right when I walked in, I could sense the energy in the building,” Andrew said of the firehouse. “It screams ‘put on a show.’” Andrew also appreciated how the ar-

Budget referendum Pamela Parrella and Patricia Jackson-Marshall, North Haven’s Registrars of Voters, provide the following information about eligibility to vote in North Haven’s budget referendum on Tuesday, May 19. You may vote in the referendum if you are a registered voter. However, if you are not a registered voter, you may vote if you meet all of the following conditions: you own property in North Haven with an assessed value of at least $1,000 on the latest grand list, excluding any exemption; you must be at least 18 years old, and you must be a United States citizen. The current grand list is as of Oct. 1, 2008. This means that if you are not a registered voter, and you acquired the property with an assessed value of at least $1,000 after Oct. 1, 2008, you are not eligible to vote in the referendum. In addition, you must own the property as an individual, not as a partnership or a corporation. If you intend to vote off of the grand list, the Registrars recommend that you bring your most recent tax bill with you to the polls to speed up the verification process. The fastest and easiest way to vote in the referendum is to be a registered voter. Voter registration forms are available from the town Web site or you can complete a voter registration application at the registrars’ office or the town clerk’s office until the close of business on Monday, May 18, 2009. Please call (203) 239-5321, ext. 755 if you have any questions.

chitect worked to keep the feeling that the structure was once a firehouse. “He used the natural beauty of the building,” the producer said of the builder. Andrew said that the location is nostalgic for his pupils’ parents. “They love it,” he said of the adults. “A lot of parents of my kids were born in town. They come up and it brings them back to when they had parties and dances in the firehouse’s auditorium.”

And if nothing else, the address provides the perfect boast for his young thespians, assuming nobody asks them to elaborate. “Now kids can say they are performing on Broadway,” Andrew joked. “The kids are really excited.” The play’s funding is provided by the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation. Tickets to “Guys and Dolls” are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. To purchase tickets, call the studio at (203) 464-8212. For addi-

Continued from page 1 was formed, Silengo served as its first president. “We were really trying to bring attention to the event, and at the same time keep the rich history of the league,” said league safety officer and opening day commissioner Pete Durante, who also serves as a coach and assistant coach on two Max Sinoway teams. “It’s just awesome to see,” Durante said of the throw between such different generations of North Haven residents. “It just goes to show that the tradition of people in North Haven lives on. It’s a great testament to the legacy of the town.” Durante added that Max Sinoway Baseball executives had been planning opening day since January. Several guest speakers offered brief words of encouragement to the baseball teams and onlookers. First Selectman Janet McCarty promised to keep her speech short, thinking first of the anxious little leaguers who longed to begin their seasons. “I wish you great luck,” she said. “Work really hard.” State Rep.

proud of North Haven families,” and hoped the season would be “free of injuries and full of fun.” State Sen. Len Fasano, RNorth Haven, called for a great season in which the players would “learn about life and baseball.” Selectman Michael Freda sprinted to the microphone and stated that “Max Sinoway is a wonderful foundation for children.” “Baseball has been an integral part of my life for many years,” Freda continued. “Play hard and respect your teammates.” After the guest speakers shared their encouragements, a four person North Haven High School student band played “God Bless America” and the national anthem. The little league parents and player’s pledges were recited – the latter by Sam and Casey Blank – leaving only the first pitch before games could be played. After Silengo’s toss, the children dispersed to various fields around town, which had been cleaned, groomed, and given fresh base lines in bated anticipation for the longawaited opening day.

North Haven environmental supporters took the first step toward a broader greenadvocacy in town through the first annual Earth Day Celebration on Saturday in the middle school. “Environmental advocacy is something not to be made fun of,” said State Rep. Stephen Fontana to an audience at the celebration. “It is the survival of our future and planet.” Fontana’s speech was the centerpiece of the event, which included many booths and interactive exhibits from local, eco-friendly organizations, as well several nature hikes and a short speech from First Selectman Janet McCarty. “We need to change our bad habits to have a better Earth,” McCarty said, before introducing her second-selectman. Fontana, a member of the State Capital’s Environmental Commission, spoke from years of experience in green-advocacy. “Our Earth is good for us if we treat it well,” he said. “We are in a place in our time where we’re finally paying attention to our Earth after so many years of not doing it.” Fontana said that a global effort could start on the state level. “We create hundreds of thousands of tons of garbage every year in the state, and

we don’t manage that well,” he said. “We need to change the way we live our lives. We need to be environmental stewards, and we are charged as stewards to act so that future generations can have the opportunities that we have: clean air and clean soil.” “When I was young, environmental advocacy was lampooned,” Fontana continued. “You all here care about this, and understand that it is something not to be made fun of. It is the survival of our future and our planet.” Referencing the modest size of the crowd, Fontana exclaimed “things start small and always build.” “People do buy into environmental advocacy in North Haven,” Fontana said. “We have one of the highest rates of recycling in the state.” There were plenty of environmentally-friendly organizations from North Haven present to bolster the representative’s claim. The North Haven Trail Association’s booth focused on the proposed creation of a linear and paved trail system extending through the center of town to link up with Meriden, Wallingford, and Hamden paths. The trail will run along the east banks of the Quinnipiac River. The association has begun phase one of the proposed trail, according to NHTA President Ron Penton, which focuses on developing a cen-

tral section of the trail that runs through a piece of the Rabina property sandwiched between two town-owned sections. Penton believes that all three phases of the project could take two to three years, though cautions that it may take longer in light of Farmington’s two decades spent on developing a similar trail system. Later that day, Penton led 40-plus citizens on a tour of the phase one path. Peter’s Rock Association also took hikers on trails around its namesake’s park. North Haven’s Clean Energy Task Force was present to sign residents up for clean energy. Clean energy originates from wind and hydro power, as opposed to coal firing plants, according to Task Force member Letty McPhedran. For a small additional charge, a house can receive the natural energy, allowing a small amount of coal fuel to be removed from the power grid. “Each individual family can contribute to lessening global warming,” McPhedran said. At present, the Task Force has signed up 275 North Haven residents for clean energy, 25 short of the number needed to earn four free solar panels from the Clean Energy Fund, McPhedran said. The solar panels can be utilized by any public buildings. Many animal skins, including a beaver and a black bear, were displayed before Department of Environmental Protection Master Wildlife Conversationalist Diantha Thorpe. “Our purpose is to educate people within the state,” Thorpe said of the DEP’s booth. “We put out what animals are current that people don’t know about. I don’t think people know that there are more and more black bears in Connecticut.” Retired middle school teacher Neal Peckham hosted a compost workshop in his greenhouse located in the school’s courtyard.

If our poll is any indication, the town’s 2009-10 budget will not fare well at referendum on May 19. Granted, the poll is far from scientific, and had only garnered 26 votes as of press time, but nonetheless, nearly three quarters of those who voted said they would not support the current budget. In crafting the poll’s options we tried to anticipate the many reasons one would vote in favor of or against the budget. In last week’s story about the Board of Finance meeting where the budget was finalized, chairman Dean Volain stated that if the town voted down the budget – one in which there is a tax decrease – he wanted to know why. Our poll results may give Mr. Volain, and other town leaders, the answers to that question. Of the 26 who voted, 27 percent said they would vote ‘yes’ for this budget because it was the best compromise for the town given the state of our current economy. However, all the rest of the poll votes were against the budget, with 27 percent saying they would vote ‘no’ because the Engineer II position was cut, 12 percent would reject the budget because of cuts on the education side, and 15 percent because of concerns about the use of the fund balance. Another 12 percent of the poll voters said they would not support the budget because of lack of union concessions, and eight percent said no because further cuts needed to be made. No matter which way you are leaning when considering your vote in this budget referendum, I urge you to be prepared, be informed and get involved. On page 5, the town’s Registrars of Voters explain the voter requirements for eligibility to vote in the referendum. If you are not currently registered to vote in town, and meet the requirements listed, you have until Monday, May 18, to register. Also, take advantage of the opportunities afforded to you as residents to get information, ask questions, and share your thoughts, ideas and insights, at public meetings. Upcoming meetings include the Board of Selectmen on Monday, May 4, 7 p.m. at the library, and the annual Town Meeting on Monday, May 11, 7 p.m. at the North Haven High School auditorium. But keep this in mind: It’s like Henry Ford said, “Don’t find fault, find a remedy; anybody can complain.” —Pamela Morello

Freda’s Focus: Voters deserve options in upcoming referendum

I have always felt that it is best to have choices and options. Having choices and options is something that applies to all facets of our daily lives. Choices and options are always the luFreda bricant to a successful outcome where all parties can be satisfied.

Here in North Haven, my colleagues and I on the Board of Selectmen are in disagreement on an upcoming question and resolution that will be presented to you at our town hearing on May 11. That question is regarding our paramedic program. Our disagreement is on one basic issue – my colleagues feel that the acceptance of the Safer Grant to help us subsidize the paramedic program should be tied into the passing of the budget, and I

disagree with their position. My position is that the budget and the paramedic program should be two separate ballot questions. I also disagree with my colleagues because I feel that by tying the Safer Grant and paramedic program into the passing of this budget, we are restricting your right to make the decisions that you would like. Let’s take a look at my colleague’s point of view and compare it to my point of

view. My colleague’s feel that it would not be responsible to have the budget be rejected, and then have a paramedic program implemented. They feel that the only way that we can have a paramedic program, which they indicate that they are in favor of, is to have this upcoming budget pass. They also appear to be saying that if you really want the paramedic program you had better vote for the budget.

My point of view revolves around the fact that by tying the language of accepting the paramedic program into the fact that the budget has to be passed, it creates the following potential outcomes: 1) For those of you that want the paramedic program, but want to vote against the budget, you will have to vote for the budget. 2) For those of you who

The best legislation is borne of compromise Last year the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled in Kerrigan v. the Department of Public Health that same-sex c o u p l e s have a constitutional right to marry. The court’s ruling resulted in changing the law here Fasano in the State of Connecticut. And this past week on Wednesday, April 22, 2009, the legislature passed SB 899: An Act Implementing the Guarantee of Equal Protection Under the Constitution of the State for Same Sex Couples formally codifying the court’s ruling. And while the legislature passed SB 899, let me first say I consider the court’s initial ruling itself a personal affront upon our legislative process. For all intents and purposes, its ruling implied that we in the legislature failed to quickly and effectively protect the rights of same-sex couples. The truth is, however, that the legislature takes its job very seriously and works incredibly hard to perform its obligations. It is not the court’s obligation to legislate, it is ours. The reality is that in 2005, the General Assembly passed legislation granting civil union status to samesex couples as well as a number of laws protecting against any discrimination based upon sexual preference. SB 899 is not the first action the General Assembly has taken to protect the rights of same-sex couples. Even if the court believes this legislature acted too slowly in dealing with this issue, the court is not still justified in legislating from the bench. This Supreme Court was out of line in its decision and out of line in claiming this state has been too slow to protect the rights of same-sex couples. Regardless of how this issue ended up before the legislature, SB 899 caused an

equal outpouring of both support and dissent. Some believe same-sex couples have the right to marry while others argue marriage should only exist between a man and a woman. I can tell you that my decision to vote ‘Yes’ was not an easy one as I was strongly opposed to the language in the original bill out of concern for religious freedom. While I respect and support the wishes of samesex couples to celebrate their union, I also believe wholeheartedly in an individual’s right to religious freedom, particularly as a Catholic myself. I, along with several other legislators, worked hard to draft amendments to the original bill to protect that religious freedom. I also worked with the Catholic Church in the language placed in those amendments. The result is an amended bill which both recognizes and respects religious freedom and still protects the constitutional rights of the samesex marriage that our Supreme Court required. And that is why I voted to support the bill. Our state set an example of what can be done if lawmakers work together rather than against each other. I have long believed that the best legislation is borne of compromise and a true spirit of bipartisanship. Last week we in the General Assembly passed a bill built on compromise protecting the rights of same-sex couples while respecting the right to religious freedom. In the context of a Supreme Court decision creating havoc on our current laws regarding marriage in the State of Connecticut, legislators on both sides of the aisle pulled together, set aside personal agendas and personal bias, and did what is right to move our state forward. If the Supreme Court allowed the legislature to legislate without judicial interference, I am sure the legislature would have passed a law which was better for all the parties involved.

Letters to the Editor Vote yes for paramedic program To the editor: As chairman of the North Haven Fire Commission, I urge everyone to vote “yes” on the upcoming referendum regarding a fire based paramedic program for our town. Over the past year, our fire department has worked tirelessly to seek out and ensure a grant award to underwrite costs of this program. Our fire chief submitted all the necessary documents and was successful in obtaining the $433,520 award. The paramedic program, in its first year will cost the Town of North Haven $52,166. The cost of the four additional firefighters is being underwritten by the reduction of overtime expenditures as well as federal funding for four years. Although the federal share decreases over time, the overtime savings remains quite consistent for the taxpayers of North Haven. That, coupled with the expertise a paramedic is bringing to a medical emergency involving your loved ones, is a cost which is impossible to place a dollar value on. What intrigues me about this referendum vote is this. At the most recent Board of Finance committee meeting a long time respected citizen, Ann Ruocco, spoke in favor of the paramedic program but questioned why it is not included in the current budget. She felt that there was no reason to include the paramedic language as a separate item, and I agree. Even after the current first selectman and her administration support this issue she still lacks the leadership ability to im-

Freda’s Focus Continued from page 14 want to vote for the budget, but do not want the paramedic program, you are going to get the paramedic program. 3) If the budget does not pass, but you want the paramedics, you will not get a paramedic program. I think that the way that this is structured could cre-

plement it. A strong leader and manager would have included this program, which she campaigned for, in the budget. Instead she has tied its implementation into the successful passage of the current budget referendum thus transferring her elected responsibility to the voters. Should the budget fail for any number of reasons (Bob Burns, school budget), but the paramedic program passes, why would Ms. McCarty remove the paramedic program that the voters have accepted? If the taxpayers of this community vote to accept the paramedic program, what authority does Ms. McCarty have to then remove it? I urge all North Haven voters to vote to support this life saving program. And I further urge you all to call Town Hall and express your desire to have Ms. McCarty separate the two questions. Pasquale Nuzzolillo Chairman, North Haven Fire Commission

A call for transparency To the editor: No one in North Haven has forgotten the campaign promise Janet McCarty delivered, a promise that helped her win the office she now holds. The word “transparency” was heard repeatedly at the time but to date, transparency has failed to show up. This was obvious at the recent Board of Finance meeting of April 15 where our CEO (as North Haven’s first selectwoman sometimes refers to herself) was questioned. One question had originally been asked months before at a Board of Selectmen meeting. At that ate a great deal of confusion, chaos and animosity. What is the purpose? Why not let the people decide what they want? I have tried to look at this issue from all sides and have concluded that a town government should not restrict your ability to vote, or influence your ability to vote the way the government wants you to vote. It is not a government’s position to tell you that the only way you can get

time, asked to comment on a “rumor” about police department contract negotiations, her statement, “It is not a rumor, it is true,” stunned everyone. For the first time it became publicly known that a change in past practice would bar the police chief, the fire chief and director of the library from taking part in scheduled town/union negotiations. Immediately, the word “Why?” echoed around the room in whispers. Within seconds, several people were standing to ask the reason for such a sea change. “It was my decision,” was the tightlipped response, a new version of Mom’s “Because I said so!” “But what was the reason that required such a decision?” went unanswered. When the April 15 Board of Finance meeting heard complaints about negotiations from a Department of Public Works Union representative,

the question seemed timely and was posed again. Once more, the audience was told, “It was my decision.” Pushed by continuing requests for a real reason for keeping department heads out of negotiations, Mrs. McCarty did add something. She had sought advice, she said, but she neither named those who advised her or revealed what advice they had given. Once more, she repeated “It was my decision,” and said she was at a loss to know what other answer she could make. Apparently she is not familiar with the dictionary definition of “transparency.” The word means “open, frank and candid.” A little transparency might be nice. Florence B. Sinow North Haven

Fund balance use is smart

To the editor: Last week



Haven Board of Finance approved a budget that basically retained town services and programs, put money into the fund balance and did not increase taxes. This budget was not unanimously approved. The two Republican members of the board voted against the budget thereby advocating a tax increase. These are difficult economic times with people losing their jobs, having their work hours reduced and having to pay more for their (health) benefits. It is unconscionable to ask people to pay more in taxes if that can be avoided. The fund balance is at a healthy level. A portion of the $4 million dollars received from CRRA has been used in next year’s budget and the remainder placed in reserve. The programs and services that the residents of North Haven have come to expect are intact. Why have a tax increase when it can be avoided? The chairman of the Board of Finance explained it quite well that in

Obama report card To the editor: I cringe when I hear the word “hope” anymore. Hoping is for people who have no plan of action and no idea how to formulate one. “Change” is the result of your effort after you have done the correct thinking. So how’s the great black hope doing after three months? Well, for someone who promised to be the uniter he said we never had, the visionary for the future we dummies couldn’t produce, the spark for “hope” and “change” no one else thought of, I can tell you that I can barely stand the sight of the president. He promised transparency, we get double talk. He promised the crème de la crème of the business world in his administration, we get tax dodgers and unsavory retreads. He promised a line by line perusal of the budget, we get out of control spending and no “hope” for the future for our children and grandchildren. What he has united is

every thug and dictator with a vested interest in our downfall. He gave the Queen of England DVDs she can’t use, his Secretary of State is blindsided by the vice president’s suggestion that she give the equivalent of an easy button to a Russian official and we hung our heads. What has changed is my respect for him. I’m ashamed of him. The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, however, can be proud of his student. Barack learned his lessons well. Give the unearned to the undeserving, break the spirit of the creators, don’t allow anyone to be bigger than he is and curse your enemies just before you take away their rights. Those enemies, by the way, would be us. In 90 days, our new president has frightened everyone out of shopping, people are withdrawing money from the bank and hiding it at home, no one dares buy a car anymore, much less a house, company executives dress down to avoid the press and perfectly normal, average American citizens are making signs and walking up and down the street at tea parties yelling “Dump Dodd” and “U.S.A.” in their first protest march. I know this, because I was there. We were accused of being racists who don’t know our history and fear mongers for speaking out. So much for uniting the races. How do you think he’s doing?

More and more children are being brought into school not only very young, but also with many needs that have to be addressed. Resources are essential for addressing these needs and assisting children to function at their full and maximum potential. “It’s important to give voice to our young children who do not have one, and when adults get together from all walks of life to give our children a voice their future success will be en-

Everyone had terrific suggestions, comments, and shared common concerns about having the children of their community be well prepared educationally at an early age so they can begin building successful and productive lives when they become adults. “I’m very happy to be here and the question raised this evening presents different opinions about the question and in every community it’s a different answer,” said Selectman Michael Freda. “This forum will bring us closer to forming a concrete position.

sured,” said Kimberly Carew, language arts consultant at Clintonville School. A common ground that all four groups did agree on was that parents are responsible for setting the stage for their children’s growth and education, but also it is a collaborative role that involves parents, teachers, and schools to help foster and continue children’s success (from preschool to high school), and the public to assist in their later years (for example college). At the close of the event, all participants highlighted their most important ideas, filled out evaluations, and engaged in a wrap up session.

general overview was given, and finally all participants were divided into four groups according to the diversity of age and background for discussion. The agenda consisted of introduction and guidelines, discussion choices, summary of common ground, areas of disagreements, questions and concerns, and next steps (where do we go from here?). The major focus was on early childhood education dealing with a child’s first five years. A common question asked was whose responsibility is it to educate a child—the parents, community, or the public? “I became involved in this event because of my commitment to early childhood education, and it’s wonderful to see the community participating and eager to move forward with it,” replied Alicia Clapp, a retired teacher and member of the Board of Education. “We must invest early in our children so they can achieve and be successful both locally and nationally.” People who participated included leaders from the community, parents, educators, clergy, seniors, high school students, and young adults. Nearly 90 people attended the event and despite some of the differences in opinions on who should be re-

sponsible for a child’s education, everyone had a common vision to help children grow and succeed because the future of the community depends on it. “I think it’s an excellent opportunity to get people from all walks of life to have the chance to have an open discussion on early childhood education,” said Judy Amarone, director of the senior center. “We agree with Judy, and it’s important to recognize diversity and to work cohesively and productively for the benefits of our children’s education and their future and the future of our community,” said Mame Usher, moderator of the event, and Lauren Montano, director of the community services daycare center. Parents are concerned about what their children need to know when they enter kindergarten. Studies have shown that the first five years of a child’s life are crucial to learning because they deal with the developmental stages. Another aspect to look at is the society that children of today are living in. “Parents are raising their children in a diverse society,” said Claudia Grantham, prin-

Earth Day Continued from page 8

courtyard and surrounding gardens, instructed fellow green-thumbs on how to erect successful compost bins. “My compost bins are made out of pallets,” he said. “Throw all of your plant debris in them: garden waste, grass clippings, coffee grinds, banana peels.” Peckham’s system involved multiple bins. He employed a pitchfork to move and turn over the debris from bin to bin, which the gardener said would produce useful compost in “about a year.” Peckham’s pallets

were bound together with rope so that he could untie the front of the bin and allow the compost to fall forwards. Peckham also suggested using a rototiller to till the compost, as opposed to sifting it. He advised that the top layer of the finished compost be removed and mixed into another bin before releasing the pallets, as the top layer is too dry for use. The gardening teacher spoke fondly of compost. “It’s a soil amenity. It adds tilth to the soil, it retains moisture, and it loosens soil. It attracts earth worms, and they aerate the soil – their droppings are fertilizer. It’s potting soil that you don’t have to buy.” With 44 years of gardening experience, Peck-


ham funds his middle school greenhouse projects by selling the plants grown there, and with Mother’s Day approaching, the teacher suggested a visit to his nursery. Visitors to Boy Scout Troop 811’s table could create small egg cartons plants. The activity involved planting seeds in soil inside a singular section of a biodegradable egg carton container. Life scout Donald Adams said that the activity was to help the town become greener. Adams added that the egg cartons allowed the small plants to be resistant to rabbits and Japanese Beetles, two local garden pests. All the materials for the Boy Scouts were provided by Agway, said Scout Master

Paul Haaf, who added that the booth was one of many service projects for Troop 811. “It’s something to show our concern for the environment and Earth,” Haaf said. “It’s something hands-on that children can do.” North Haven High School teacher Anthony Giordano and the school’s Project Green club offered themedactivities for children at Earth Day. “We have face painting and eco-friendly crafts for kids in an effort to promote awareness,” Giordano said. “At the high school, we focus on the recycling program and the Clean Energy Task Force.” Giordano’s students were turning half-cut, 2-liter bottles into planters, filling them with soil. Children could decorate the planters with cutouts from recycled magazines. Other booths included The Peter’s Rock Association, The Conservation Commission, League of Women’s Voters, and The Department of Public Works. While the turnout may have been small for the first year, the Earth Day Celebration was a success in terms of breaking ground on intensified future efforts for environmental advocacy in North Haven. “It’s an exciting time to be an environmental advocate,” Fontana said, wrapping up his speech.

Natural ways to keep pests from spoiling outdoor summer fun

From backyard barbecues and pool parties to cultivating your landscaping and “recession garden,” summer fun is even better when shared with others, except when that group includes some unwelcome critters. Humans aren’t the only ones who enjoy the warm weather. Flying, buzzing, stinging, four-legged and four-footed pests also turn out in force when the days turn pleasant. “Warmer weather means it’s time for outdoor living and enjoying backyard picnics, parties and pure relaxation,” says Luke Miller, edi-

tor of Garden Ideas & Outdoor Living. “Unfortunately, as the days get warmer, pests wake up and make their appearance.” Whether they come after your plants or bite you and your pets, pests can spoil any day. You don’t have to share your backyard with deer, rabbits, moles, snakes or even dreaded mosquitoes and ticks anymore. And you also don’t have to resort to harsh chemicals and sprays to ward off unwanted critters. Look for all-natural, safe and effective ways to protect your family, pets, garden and the environment this sum-

most common ingredient in chemical repellents. It’s made with botanical oils so it’s safe for children and has a pleasant scent. It also comes in an all-natural formula safe for dogs and cats. For intimate areas and especially evening gatherings, good old citronella candles can be effective repellents for biting, flying insects. You can also add ambiance and gain some insect-thwarting benefits from strategically placed tiki torches — the heat, flame and slight smokiness of the torches will act as a natural repellent. Just be sure to practice smart safety habits around all open flames. Finally, minimize the opportunity for flying pests to occupy your backyard. Eliminate all standing water from the vicinity, since it’s a favorite breeding ground for

mosquitoes. Regularly check overhangs and eaves on your house and outdoor play equipment to make sure wasps and other nest-building insects don’t have the chance to take up residence. Before these unwelcome guests ruin your day, we recommend you try new Yard Net Lawn & Yard Insect Repellent and spray an invisible barrier around your yard which will last for 24-hours. This all-natural, freshly scented formula made with botanical oils is safe for use around children and pets. Garden munchers Many belt-tightening American families will turn to gardening this year to trim their grocery bill by growing their own produce. Yet common garden pests

mer. Here are a few tips for thwarting some common summer pests: Mosquitoes and flying insects Mosquitoes aren’t just a nuisance; they can be a health threat as well, carrying a number of viruses harmful to humans. Other flying insects, like hornets and wasps, can also spoil your summer fun — or cause worse problems for those with insect allergies. If you would prefer to forego strong chemical repellents, there are natural options. Look for organic, herbal or plant-based topical products that you apply to the skin or spray barriers that can protect your whole yard.

Longer grass can also better withstand periods of heat and drought. * If your lawn is dry, the best time to water it is in the morning.

Caring for the environment means caring for a full, green lawn. Properly maintaining your lawn will produce strong grass and can help protect and conserve water resources at the same time. Regular care and lawn maintenance is especially important if you live near large bodies of fresh water like the Great Lakes. Containing more than 90 percent of the fresh surface water in the United States, the Great Lakes provide more than 40 million Americans and Canadians with drinking water. To enjoy a great lawn and protect fresh water resources for generations to come, follow these lawn care tips from the experts at The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company and the Alliance for the Great Lakes: * Strong, dense lawns can help reduce run off and erosion, and filter rainwater to recharge groundwater supplies. The foundation of a good lawn is rich soil, so use a mulching mower to return grass clippings to the soil where the clippings break down and recycle nutrients back into the grass. * Generally, only new lawns require additional phosphorus for root growth. For mature lawns, choose a fertilizer that is low-phosphorus or phosphorus-free, unless a soil test shows a need for more. * The best time to fertilize is in the spring and fall. Never fertilize when the ground is frozen. * Use a drop spreader or rotary spreader with a side guard to keep fertilizer on the lawn. * Sweep any grass clippings and fertilizer that land on driveways and sidewalks back on to the lawn to help keep nutrients out of waterways. * Set your mower to its highest setting to build

Indians fall to Shelton 13-6 with poor late inning pitching By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

The North Haven High School baseball team watched an early lead evaporate into a 13-6 loss to Shelton on Monday, as shaky late inning pitching proved to be the Indian’s downfall. North Haven’s Elvin Rodriguez pitched effectively into the sixth inning with a 53 lead, only to have Shelton’s batters begin to make consistent, solid contact. Over the next two innings, the visitors belted Rodriguez and relief pitchers Kevin Fuggi and Steve Cusano to the tune of 10 runs. The late game power binge was surprising for a contest that was defined early by defense, speed, and small ball, not to mention poor luck for the home team. Shelton struck first in the top of the first inning, and it quickly became apparent that the bumpy playing field would take a toll on both teams. Leadoff batter Mike Sarni rolled a ball to Steve Rudewicz, who tripped sideways in collecting the grounder. Sarni took advantage of the gaffe, stealing second base and eventually scoring after teammate Dan St. George’s bouncer got past shortstop Nick Gambardella. North Haven got the run back later that frame with a clutch hit from their designated hitter. Rodriguez led off, sending a grounder to Shelton third baseman Andy Price, who flung the ball over the head of the first baseman. Advancing to second base on the error, Rodriguez would cross home on DH Anthony Fasulo’s two-out single past the lunging shortstop. The Indians had a chance to open the game up, as bad ball hops allowed Steve DiCapua and Rudewicz to reach base, putting runners on all corners. Unfortunately, Shelton pitcher Connor Nolan got Eric Yavarone to pop out, ending the threat and the inning. After throwing a scoreless inning, Rodriguez got things going for North Haven again

in the bottom of the second. The pitcher took a walk and easily stole second. The next batter, Russ Caprio, sent a hard liner directly up the middle - narrowly missing the ducking Nolan - and into center field. Rodriguez scored standing up on the play as the Shelton center fielder had difficulty fielding the single. Although the North Haven fielders experienced their share of troubles, home field was to their advantage as the visitors were continually frustrated by errant hops of the ball. Rodriguez walked two in the top of the third, but survived the inning unscathed. The Indians added to their 21 lead in the bottom of the inning with Fasulo’s two-out walk as the catalyst. Following the base-on-balls, Yavarone redeemed himself from leaving three men on earlier by depositing a Shelton pitch into right field, scoring his teammate. Yavarone continued his productive inning, stealing second base and scoring after Jimmy Albert laced a twoout single down the left field line. With the visitor’s lead growing to 4-1, Shelton freshman Ryan Zahornasky relieved Nolan and promptly struck out Andrea Anastasio to end the threat. The pivotal play of the game’s first half took place at third base in the top of the fourth. Shelton’s Jay Hannay coaxed a one-out walk. After left fielder Albert made a terrific catch on the next batter’s sharp line drive to left field, Sarni returned to the batter’s box. The opponent’s shortstop crushed a two-out Rodriguez pitch over Yavarone’s head in center field, scoring Hannay and making it 4-2. With the run already official, Sarni became greedy and wheeled around second base thinking of a triple. By then Yavarone had collected the ball, and the center fielder made the perfect throw to Rudewicz at third. Rudewicz caught the throw in front of himself See Baseball, page 30

Baseball with his arm already fully extended and inches above the base path, so that the ball traveled into the mitt a split second before Sarni’s sliding foot did, tagging the runner out and putting an end to the inning. A stroke of poor luck would ruin an Indian rally in the home half of the fourth. With two outs, Gambardella legged out an infield single. The shortstop stole second, followed by a walk by Fasulo, the DH’s third time on base. DiCapua bounced a timely single into the outfield, scoring Gambardella and putting men on the corners with two outs for Rudewicz. Fresh off his web gem, the North Haven third baseman hit a Zahornasky pitch hard toward right field, a speeding grounder that would have easily gotten past the first baseman and resulted in an additional run. Unfortunately, the ball’s trajectory took it directly into DiCapua, who had little time to evade the projectile. A runner cannot interfere with a ball put in play by his teammate, and DiCapua was out, putting a luckless end to the rally. Shelton made it 5-3 in the top of the fifth on Jim Pjura’s single to center which plated Nick Georgalas. The turning

Continued from page 29

point of the game came in the bottom of the inning: Zahornasky turned in a quick and desperately needed onetwo-three inning, the first scoreless frame of the game for North Haven batters. Zahornasky’s team carried the momentum into the top of the sixth, where they blew the game wide open. Pinch hitter and freshman Ryan Daiss began the inning by taking first on four balls. Sarni continued to hit Rodriguez well, doubling deep into the left field grass and putting men on second and third. Eric Christensen reached first on a throwing error by the shortstop, scoring Daiss and putting the score at 5-4. St. George tied the game a batter later with a single to center, which proved to be the end of Rodriguez’s pitching day – he was moved to short and relieved by Fuggi. Unfortunately, North Haven’s woes in the sixth inning were not yet complete: Fuggi gave up back to back singles, allowing Shelton to go ahead 7-5. The visitors would add to the scoreboard again on Pjura’s ground out before the inning was finished.

Part III After Grace had closed the tavern door, I still felt the presence of death in the room. I thought to myself perhaps it was the cold chill of the night that blew in when the door had opened, or was it my encounter with Mr. Higgins, or was it what Grace had said about my resemblance to Elizabeth, or was my imagination getting the best of me. Something was very wrong and I believed that somehow I was unknowingly and unwillingly now part of a town’s dark secret. The next morning the sun was shining and the birds were chirping in a tree outside the window of my dwelling place. I rose quickly and put on my Sunday dress and descended to the dining hall. Grace was waiting for me with a nice hot bowl of oatmeal, fresh fruit, and freshly made biscuits with honey. “Come my dear, enjoy this delicious breakfast and then we must make haste to church,” replied grace. After enjoying the delicious meal, I helped Grace clear the table, and then we went to church services.

Mrs. Andrews and her son Jesse attended the Congregational Church where Benjamin Trumbull was minister. Grace went to St. John’s Episcopal Church across from the town green. Being an Episcopalian myself, I was glad to attend St. John’s. Before the services began, Grace explained to me in a soft voice that when the Revolutionary War ended there were only 14 Episcopal clergymen left in Connecticut; one of them was Samuel Andrews, no relation to Mrs. Andrews, who had served Wallingford, North Haven, Cheshire, and Meriden since 1762. Unfortunately, Andrews was a loyalist throughout the Revolution and had for a time been under house arrest in Wa l l i n g f o r d . Since strong feelings of mistrust and contempt were against him, Andrews resigned all his parishes in 1785, and immigrated to New Brunswick, Canada. “After Andrews left, St. John’s had no rector for a few years, but we were held together by Joseph Pierpont, owner of the grist mills, where David Cobb and Theodore Norton work. Pierpont was assisted by Titus Frost who is married to Mabel Stiles, granddaughter of the Reverend Isaac Stiles,” said Grace. I enjoyed the Sunday service at St. John’s. It reminded me of the church I went to in England with my mother and Patience. While we were walking back to the tavern, David Cobb rode up to us on horseback. He dutifully tipped his tricorn hat to us and wanted to engage in pleasant conversation. Grace abruptly told him that we had no time to chit chat and needed to be on our way. She took hold of my hand and we hurried back to the tavern. Upon our return, Grace went outside to gather some wood for the fireplace and I

Down 8-5, North Haven began the bottom of the sixth with a single from Rodriguez, who would advance to second on a ground out from Caprio. Rodriguez took third on a passed ball and then scored tagging up after Gambardella’s fly out. Rodriguez slid over home plate, barely beating the smooth relay from the outfield and the sweeping tag from the catcher. Zahornasky then struck out Fasulo to close out the inning.

Shelton effectively put the game away in the seventh. After Price’s ground out, Sarni was hit by a pitch and stole second. Christensen walked, followed by a slicing single to center by St. George, plating Sarni. Now facing a 9-6 deficit, Cusano was summoned to pitch. Georgalas extended his bat and poked a single to center, scoring Christensen. Mike Manzos drove St. George home with a single to right field, making it 11-5. Finally, Pjura put an exclamation on the late afternoon match up, roping a triple down the right field baseline, scoring

Georgalas and Manzos. When the dust had settled, the Indians found themselves behind 13-6, which would prove to be the final score, as North Haven mustered only a single in their final at bat. With the loss, North Haven’s record stood at 5-3, while Shelton improved to 54.

began to sweep the floor. A few minutes later the tavern door opened and in walked a woman I had never met before. She was short and mannish in appearance and had a pale and condescending look upon her face. As she entered, I politely told her that we were not serving any customers until the evening. She said that she was not here for food and drink, but on a mission to find a hat that belonged to a friend. She introduced herself as Lydia Johnson, a friend and neighbor of Stanton Higgins. I dropped the broom and stood still upon hearing that name.

“Oh my dear, are you feeling okay? I hope I’m not disturbing you. Mr. Higgins was here last night and he forgot to take his hat so I am here to retrieve it,” she said. I graciously helped her search the room for the hat. While we searched, Lydia and I engaged in simple and brief conversation. She wanted to know all about me. While we were conversing, Grace returned and she was not happy to see Lydia Johnson. She threw the bundle of wood that she was carrying

With the exception of the wind blowing, all was silent. Then suddenly the silence was broken by a loud voice calling from behind me. “There you are my Lizzie. Get away from that scoundrel and come home with me at once,” shouted the voice. As I turned to see who was yelling, I saw that it was Mr. Higgins. He was running towards me. My legs froze from under me and I could not move. Soon he was upon me and I tried desperately to escape. I pushed and shoved but

he still came at me. I finally got my legs to move but instead of going forward, I moved backwards. As Mr. Higgins tried to grab me, I lost my balance and went over the railing screaming in terror. To be continued…

down on the floor and spoke in a harsh tone to Lydia. “What are you doing here? The devil’s servant is not welcomed here,” uttered Grace. Lydia pleasantly explained that she was looking for Mr. Higgins’ hat and apologized for the intrusion. Grace told her that if the hat was found we would return it. Then she ordered the woman to leave. Before Lydia departed, she turned to me and with a devilish look in her eyes she said that I would be seeing her again very soon. Grace was very agitated by Lydia’s visit. My curiosity got the better of me so I asked Grace what was the matter. As far as I was concerned, Lydia was a bit foreboding in appearance but she seemed harmless. “Stay away from that woman. She is nothing but trouble,” said Grace adamantly. “Lydia Johnson is the reason why Elizabeth Higgins and her Redcoat boyfriend are dead.” When I asked Grace to explain further, she excused herself and went into the back room and slammed the door shut. I suddenly had a terrible feeling of loneliness and confusion that took control of me. All at once I did not know who to trust, and I questioned myself if North Haven was the place for me. Little did I realize that while I was standing alone in the main room of the tavern, someone was watching me through the window. I would later come face to face with this person and our encounter would be a most unpleasant and dangerous one. Meanwhile in the city of Paris several thousand miles away from North Haven, danger and turmoil was erupting in the streets. Looking out of the window of his chateau, Monsieur Monnerat was observing the chaos that was taking place down below. He was very disturbed by what he saw. His train of thought was interrupted by the presence of his wife Laura. “My dear sir, I have just learned from my maid Louise that the Marquis de

Lafayette and his family have left Paris for good. They have left the country as well and have gone to America to seek the assistance of his friend William Singleton,” explained Laura. “Louise encountered one of the Marquis’ servants at the marketplace and he told her that the Marquis dismissed all the servants, closed up his chateau, and the family took their personal belongings and left last night never to return again.” Upon hearing this, Monsieur Monnerat became enraged. He threw the glass that he was holding on the floor and stepped on the broken pieces. The Marquis had something very valuable that Monsieur Monnerat wanted, and he was determined to possess it. Monnerat thought for a moment while curling his black moustache and then he instructed his beloved Laura to have the servants pack their trunks and personal belongings immediately. He told his wife that they were leaving for America. “Paris is not a very safe or healthy place to be these days,” replied Monnerat. “Let us follow the Marquis’ example and go to America. If I’m not mistaken, the Marquis would have gone to see his friend Singleton somewhere in a place called Connecticut, and that’s where we shall go. It will be a reunion of old friends and one to die for.” He then took his wife’s hand and as they left the room, both of them laughed wickedly. Back at the tavern, I had finished my chores at hand and decided to go for a walk. I had hoped that some exercise in the warm sunshine would do me some good. I walked down the dirt road while taking in the scenery and listening to the birds chirping. Some time had passed and I found myself near a river. I could see several mills not far in the distance, but being Sunday they were deserted. I saw a bridge nearby so I began to walk across it. When I reached the center of the bridge, I stopped and stood still. A cool breeze began to blow and I felt a nasty chill come upon me so I wrapped tightly the shawl I was wearing around me.
