Flamingos help pay for mission trip to Manassas By David Marchesseault Special to the North Haven Citizen

Fright may be the theme behind the Faith United Methodist Church’s Haunted House in the fall, but spring brings a new fright, the flight of the pink flamingoes. Pastor David Piscatelli of the local Methodist Church called the dollar store avian atrocities “tacky,” but even he admits that the ugly one-dimensional birds utilized to raise funds in May have a way of bringing attention to the church. The pastor of four years said that the funds raised by the clandestine activity will help support the Mission Trip Team’s travel to Manassas, Virginia this summer. David Bogert of Wallingford, one of the adult leaders of the Youth Group in the North Haven church, said that this second annual

“Week of Hope” in Manassas serves a dual purpose – service to those in need and a means to expand the spiritual growth of the participants. He stated, “We have 10 youth, plus young adults and adult chaperones making the trek this summer to this Washington, DC suburb. Here they will join teams from across the country to do repair work in the community, mentor special needs children, and provide aid to those left out of or caught up in the hustle and bustle of the Capital Beltway.” In response to why it was necessary to travel so far to help others when we have more than our share of needy people in this area, he stated that the experience is an organized camping program with an emphasis on Christian values that is offered around the country by


Members of Faith United Methodist Church’s upcoming Manassas, VA mission trip pose in front of the church parsonage, which they had just “flamingoed.” Mission participants have been secretly installing lawn flamingos to help raise money for the July trip.

Horticulture blooms at Gaylord Gaylord Hospital’s certified therapeutic recreation specialist Christina Lafex does not have a degree in horticulture nor does she have a professional gardening background, but with some help from her patients, she is learning how to make her garden grow. Approximately one year ago, a Gaylord patient with a gardening business saw potential when he spotted an unused greenhouse on the hospital property. The greenhouse, previously used as a storage unit, was functioning by October, providing the hospital and its patients with seasonal flowers such as poinsettias for Christmas, lilies at Easter, and herbs used in the hospital’s food preparation. Lafex explains that the patients meet weekly to plan and to plant; gardening tips are shared and therapy takes place. Based on the enthusiastic response, Lafex is sure that gardening will remain a popular form of therapy at Gaylord – one that will certainly bloom and grow.

More building fee discrepancies found By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen Another potential North Haven building department problem could be Tuscan Villa, 415 Clintonville Road, a three-story, age-restricted retirement complex with 59 rental apartments, where $23,051 in fees may be owed. Undercharges According to town hall’s online assessor records, total living space at 415 Clintonville Road is 78,210 square feet – 26,574 first floor space, and 51,636 combined second and third floor space. However, a building permit application submitted June 13, 2003 lists Tuscan Vil-

la’s first floor living space as “22,940” square feet. Second and third floor living spaces are both listed as “22,220” square feet, a combined sum of 44,440 square feet. Adding all three floors gives a total application listed living space of 67,380 square feet. The application is signed by North Haven building official Dave Maiden. Town hall building permit B2003-0892, issued September 11, 2003 also lists Tuscan Villa’s total living space as 67,380 square feet.

Second murder this month in North Haven By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

North Haven Fire paramedics arrived on the scene and attended to Hall best they could. After the incident, Ames left Doran’s with her son Michael, 24, who had also been at the bar. Witnesses provided authorities with descriptions of the mother and son, as well as their car. Michael Ames was charged with one count of Hindering Prosecution First Degree, for leaving the scene of a crime with his mother.

Later on Monday, detectives arrived at the Ames’ home and spoke with the mother and son. A knife, believed to be the

murder weapon, was recovered.

Just weeks after North Haven experienced a murder-suicide, another tragedy has struck in town. According to police, Doran’s Bar employee Christopher Hall, 47, was stabbed to death while working by patron Mary Ames, 47, just before 1 a.m. on May 24. Hall’s death appears to have been linked to a dispute during a billiard match. “It appears to have been over something as simple as, after a match, the loser buys the drinks,” said Capt. James Merrithew over the disagreement that precipitated the attack. “That’s what witnesses told us.” At the time, Hall, of 1651 Quinnipiac Ave New Haven,

was serving as a bartender at the 80 Old Broadway establishment. Merrithew said Ames, of 42 Oak Drive, went behind the bar, where she attacked Hall with a knife. “That’s where he was found when we arrived,” Merrithew said. “He was pronounced dead on the scene.” Pathologists from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner certified the manner of death Tuesday as a homicide. Cause of death was determined to be a single stab wound to the chest that perforated the heart. Ames was charged with murder and is being held in lieu of $1 million bail. Police were called to Doran’s after the disturbance, and found Hall mortally wounded.

Resources and help available for business expansion in North Haven By David Marchesseault Special to the North Haven Citizen

First Selectman Michael Freda chose the role of master of ceremonies at a wellattended breakfast meeting for the business community held at the Holiday Inn last Thursday and stated that he planned to offer two such meetings annually. Last week’s event was sponsored by the United Illuminating Company and was planned by the North Haven CEO with help from Richard LoPresti of the Economic Development Commission and Chamber of Commerce president Robin Wilson. According to the host, the purpose of the gathering was to provide an overview of the progress of economic development in the town, as well as a chance to point out

the opportunities available to small business and industry offered through several public organizations that support the business community throughout the state. Reminding the audience that he came from a business background, while pledging the services of Town Hall as a resource to them, Freda said that “progress has been slower than I anticipated.” Freda announced that the former Pratt & Whitney site is under consideration by a developer who is working with Mickey Rabina, although $500 million in financing must be obtained before things can solidify. He indicated that the impact of the project would be very positive should it materialize. Freda also reviewed his hopes for the further development of the northern part of Washington Avenue, the

Montowese end of the town, and the area downtown that he calls the central block near Broadway. He added that the recent opening of P.C. Richards “will help with solid momentum on Universal Drive,” as will the paving planned for the opposite end of that street in the fall. The next portion of the program was a review of the demographics of the community. With an area of 21.1 square miles and 150 miles of roadway, infrastructure in the community is crumbling in some parts of town, according to Freda who stated that there are 56 miles in need of repaving. He then reported that the population of North Haven is listed at 24,222 people. Population breakdown includes 27 percent of residents under the age of 18 years, 6 percent aged 18-24, 33 percent be-

tween 25 and 49 years, 23 percent between the ages of 50 to 64, which leaves 11 percent over 65. Freda said that the “balanced demographics” in North Haven are “good for the future” of the community because they would be beneficial to business growth in regard to goods and services. He reiterated his dedication to a “relentless approach” to bringing more business to the town. With a median age of 44, he stated that the town is comprised of 51.2 percent female citizens and 48.8 males. Residents with college degrees number 38 percent, with another 27 percent reporting some college experience. In regard to housing statistics, Freda said that there are 8,895 residences in the town, adding that a competitive mill rate, good services, and accessibility to major highways are three of the advantages that can be claimed. In regard to the tax base, he quickly pointed out that due to the recent defeat

of the proposed budget that a hearing will be held on Monday, June 7, with a second referendum on Tuesday, June 15. In closing, Freda emphasized that there is “a great deal of developable land in North Haven,” but he repeated his personal disappointment in economic progress being slower than he expected. As he assured his listeners that there were “great opportunities” available in the community, he repeated his mantra that he was “proud to be the First Selectman.” When he referenced the once-coveted designation of the town being among the top 100 places to live, he indicated that he was confident that the special rank could be attained again in the near future. In the brief remarks from the Chamber of Commerce by Robin Wilson, she said that in the four years that she has known Michael Freda, she has become con-

Commissioner speaks to American Legion about emergency response By Joseph Adinolfi The North Haven Citizen

According to Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security Commissioner Peter J. Boynton, Gov. M. Jodi Rell’s decision in 2004 to consolidate both of these functions in one state agency made a whole lot of sense. According to Boynton, the state took Homeland Security from the state police, and Emergency Management from the military and combined them in one department. Since then, communication between state, federal and local police or fire departments who are the first on the scene after a disaster has improved immeasurably. “If you’re preparing a first responder, a lot of the training you need to prepare for a natural disaster is also needed to prepare for acts of terrorism because both are disasters,” said Boynton. Boynton, who was confirmed by the state legislature last month after being

appointed by Gov. Rell in August 2009, spoke at American Legion Post No. 76 on Thursday, May 21, about his department’s role in responding to emergencies. He used recent examples like the Middletown power plant explosion to illustrate how his department has increased the efficiency of emergency response in Connecticut. The morning of the Middletown power plant explosion, Boynton and his family were at their home in Madison when they felt a tremor. Five minutes later, a message was sent out through the state’s emer-


gency communications network that there had been an explosion in Middletown. Later that day, Boynton was on a hill overlooking the ruined power plant. Because of his department’s development of incident management teams, professionals from fire departments all over the state who were specially trained, local, state and federal agencies were able to handle the disaster in a quick and efficient manner. According to Boynton, federal grants related to emergency management and homeland security have also increased dramatically since


the agency was created. Today, the agency is handling 22 federal grants – up from three in 2004 before the agency was created. The agency has received over $180 million in federal funding since it was created. “For every one dollar that you pay in taxes for this department, we are now receiving seven to ten dollars in federal grant money for both homeland security and emergency management,” said Boynton. Before being appointed the commissioner of the Department of Emergency Management and Homeland

Security, Boynton served for 28 years in the U.S Coast Guard, retiring with the rank of Captain. After retiring from the Coast Guard, Boynton was the Federal Security Director for the Transportation Security Administration at Bradley Airport for two years. During his time in the Coast Guard, he spent 10 years at sea on cutters, quick ships designed to catch drug smugglers. He and his crew seized 23 tons of marijuana and two tons of cocaine from smugglers in the Caribbean

Health insurance costs discussed by Board of Finance By Joseph Adinolfi The North Haven Citizen

Board of Finance members questioned two town contractors responsible for managing town health benefits about factors causing a 28 percent cost increase between the 2009-2010 fiscal year budget and the proposed 2010-11 budget at Wednesday night’s Board of Finance meeting. The budget was defeated 2,246 to 1,096 in Tuesday’s referendum. The rise in insurance costs was one of the largest contributors to the proposed 14 percent tax increase. “This has put a very dark cloud over the budgeting process. It caused total expenditures for the year to go up to such a level that the explosion you heard last night was our budget going down 2-

1,” said Board of Finance chairman Richard Monico. “Obviously it’s on the top of everyone’s mind in regard to our overall budget in our expenditures.” President and CEO of Ovation Benefits Bill Carrew, responsible for managing the benefit plan for the board of education, and Jeff Torello, a vice president at GBAC responsible for benefits on the town’s side of the budget, explained that the cost is a direct product of the hostile health care market. Carrew said the challenge was only getting more substantial because of the factors that are driving up healthcare costs in the town. “The drivers of all the healthcare costs are sick individuals. A lot of them cannot help the circumstances they’ve been dealt,” said Bill Carrew. “The insurance com-


panies have been trying for years to control costs, get people healthier, get people on board to their wellness programs.” Carrew said that $8 million out of the combined $10 million healthcare cost was caused by health insurance bills, and that most of the remaining $2 million dollars was caused by interest. Of that 8 million, Carrew said that $4 million was a result of lifestyle-related illnesses like diabetes and heart disease. Board member Dyann Vissicchio asked about whether or not the health insurance companies could do more to increase funding for preventative care. Carrew and Torello explained that the wellness programs did little to influence individual’s lifestyle choices. “Is it our job to be concerned about what our employees do in their free time?,” said Carrew. Both James Liano and Vissicchio asked whether the cost increases were partially the result of greedy health-

care providers. Vissicchio said pharmaceutical prices rise to coincide with seasons, like the winter, when there is high demand. Carrew said these markups did not, to his knowledge, factor into annual insurance rate increases, if they existed at all. Liano asked if healthcare providers were overcharging. Carrew and Torello explained that costs were because insurers have to cover so many different providers,

and that the marketplace generally prefers to have more access to care rather than steeper savings. Torello added that though insurance companies frequently fight with hospitals over their billing rates, they never refuse to cover patients who seek care at those hospitals. A special meeting of the Board of Finance to discuss the 2010-2011 budget has been scheduled for next Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.

Briefs Refuse collection: Memorial Day

Drove 62 miles for new right knee. (Drove back later for the left.) People come a healthy distance for surgery at Saint Raphael’s. Nancy’s 69-year-old arthritic knee was not just painful, it was crippling her quality of life. She was unsure where to go for surgery. Then her primary care doctor suggested the Hospital of Saint Raphael, Southern Connecticut’s leader in joint replacement surgery. She was so pleased with the treatment and results that when she needed her other knee replaced, she confidently drove over an hour to Saint Raphael’s again. Now she walks pain-free in the park and works in her garden the way she did years ago.

He added that he felt privileged last year to work with special needs children during his “five amazing days” in Manassas. He spoke of assisting a teacher with some ADD children and even anger management.

Adding that missionary work always requires financial support, Bogert said, “Recently, the Mission Team has hosted a Ziti Dinner and Pancake Breakfast to help supplement funds from the Haunted House and are scheduled to have a Bake Sale outside of Stop & Shop on June 12.” He then described the latest attempt to gather funds stating, “But most interesting is their ‘Month of the Flamingo’ campaign, which May has been designated. Church members can pay $10 to have another member’s yard ‘flamingoed’. (Up to 50 flamingos may be used.) Then that member must pay $10 to have the flamingos removed. There is no limit to how many times a member can be hit (over the course of the month), so the Mission Team does offer ‘Flamingo insurance’ for $25,” Bogert explained. The five parishioners involved in the interview for the story seemed to relish their tales of placing the garish lawn ornaments on their victims’ property. The pastor’s teenage son,

A group of 20 Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders have just returned from a life-changing interfaith mission trip to Israel sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League. Pastor J. P. Morgan, senior pastor of Montowese Baptist Church in North Haven, was one of the participants. Upon his return, he remarked, “This particular interfaith mission trip has changed my life in great and wonderful ways. Although this is a most complicated matter, I have much hope in the ultimate peace-making accomplishments between the Israelis and the Palestinians.” The mission participants, pictured left to right, were: the Rev. Suzanne Wagner, Aracelis Vazquez, the Rev. J.P. Morgan, the Rev. Nancy W. Strickland and the Rev. Maria LaSala. The Anti-Defamation League, a 97year-old civil rights organization, is dedicated to fighting hate, building hope and safeguarding liberty for all people.

Town expenses need to be trimmed

To the editor: The referendum dated May 18, 2010, with a 22 percent voter turn out, was defeated by a more than a twoto-one margin. The vote is a clear signal to the Board of Finance that we are unhappy with the proposal put forward. Unfortunately, we were not given the opportunity to vote to decrease the town services allocation and or the board of education allocation. Our first selectman has said he supports the wishes of the people. How does the BOF know what the wishes of the people are? Why did they not separate the town services from the board of education at a referendum as

some other towns do? The argument that $10,000 for a referendum is expensive is of no consequence compared to hundreds of thousands of dollars in budget reduction. One item I am uncomfortable with is bulk leaf collection. A substantial part of the cost is for outside contractors to help with bulk leaf pick up. There must be dozens of areas of expenses that can be reduced. I would not try to list them. I believe every town employee has the expertise to find ways to save our tax dollars. Maybe it is time for them to be brought into the mix in order to reduce the cost of running North Haven. Sherman Katz North Haven

Remembering and honoring Memorial Day By Paul Colella Special to The North Haven Citizen Memorial Day, or Decoration Day, is a patriotic holiday in the United States. It is a day to honor American servicemen who gave their lives for their country. Originally, Memorial Day honored men who had died in the Civil War. It now also honors all those who died in the Spanish-American War, World War I and World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Persian Gulf War, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Memorial Day is a legal holiday when schools, federal buildings, and many businesses are closed. It is observed on the last Monday in May. This date was made a federal holiday by a law that became effective in 1971. There are parades held in many towns and cities in

which veterans and many organizations, including Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, school groups, fraternal groups and civic organizations, march carrying banners and playing music to commemorate this very special day. Also, people decorate soldiers’ graves and graves of loved ones with flags and flowers, and flags are flown at halfmast out of respect for the fallen dead. Memorials are often dedicated on this day. Military exercises and special programs are held at Gettysburg National Military Park and at the National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia. To honor those who died at sea, some U.S. ports also organize ceremonies where tiny ships filled with flowers are set afloat on the water. Since the end of World War I, Memorial Day has also

Holocaust survivor urges students to be ‘heroes’ and stand up against injustice By David Marchesseault Special to the North Haven Citizen Westport resident and 80-year-old Holocaust survivor Anita Schorr, accompanied by American poet Steven Herz, left a lasting impression on hundreds of eighth grade students and their teachers at the North Haven Middle School last Friday. Organized by the Language Arts staff and sponsored by the parents association (PTSA), the behavior of the students was remarkable throughout the nearly twohour presentation held in the school auditorium. As luck would have it, the school was scheduled to celebrate “spirit day” on the date selected by Ms. Schorr, but principal Philip Piazza decided not to postpone the popular event on the calendar. Piazza later stated, “We are incredibly grateful that Anita shared her story with us. The opportunity to bring history to life for our students is something we’ll always try to do. Our kids could hear and feel in her words the pain that she experienced. This was an amazing lesson for everyone: a lesson in perseverance, and a message to act to prevent acts of cruelty.” Although the timeframe of the Holocaust is not part of the Social Studies curriculum, according to principle organizer and English teacher Alicia Crismale, she said that sixth grade history teacher Krista Golia had collaborated on the preparation for the special presentation. Golia had recently provided the students with an informative PowerPoint overview entitled “The Rise of Hitler.” Crismale, who boasts a solid background in the history of WW II, reported that her special needs co-teacher Dan Stamper has a similar curricular expertise. Stating that sharing talents and training in any school is important, Crismale pointed out, “The ability to collaborate with each other and work together is an invaluable resource.” From an observer’s point of view, the community is quite fortunate to have instructional staff of this caliber. As she introduced her guest, she referred to the Holocaust as “the greatest catastrophe of the 20th century,” but quickly turned the microphone over to a colleague in order to regain her composure. She later stated,” We are so grateful to Anita for speaking to us today, and all of us feel truly fortunate to have had her and Steven Herz speak to our school. Anita’s message of ‘taking action’ is so important for students to hear and internalize.”

Left to right, Holocaust survivor Anita Schorr, English teacher Alicia Crismale, and poet Steven Herz listen to poetry read by middle school students. Financed by the PTSA field trip fund, the culmination of the learning experience was historic in its own right. Several members of the faculty commended their colleague on her perseverance in seeking to bring the well-known speaker to the school. The program began with a narration of personal photos of Schorr when she was a child while she emphasized that this major crisis in her life took place as she reached the age of her young listeners. Her photo journal was informative, graphic and emotional as she often repeated the observation that despite the ongoing atrocities, “the world was silent.” Countless photographs flashed on the giant screen above the stage. Indicating that the solemn background music was written by a dear friend of hers, Schorr deferred to Herz who opened the program saying, “The time was Thanksgiving, 1938” as he read a poem that he had titled “It’ll pass.” The powerful theme told of the initial belief proclaimed by some of the elders that the events taking place would pass, a mistaken belief held by many as they lost more and more of their personal rights to the powerful Third Reich. In March, 1938, there were 972 Jewish refugees in a ship off the coast of Florida who were not permitted to land because of new “quotas” in America. The following year, when little Anita was still under 9 years of age, the yellow star bearing the See Holocaust, next page


Municipal Summit on Climate Action Representatives from North Haven’s Clean Energy Task Force attended the first ever “Municipal Summit on Climate Action” in March. The conference was organized by Amey Marrella, Commissioner of Connecticut’s Department of Environmental Protection. Letty McPhedran and Mary Mahon attended on behalf of North Haven. Keynote speakers emphasized the pivotal role of local action and citizen response in Connecticut’s climate change program. The emphasis was on “Climate Change” instead of “Global Warming.” McPhedran and Mahon pointed out that in the melting of the glaciers with more moisture being drawn up into the atmosphere, we are likely to have more snow in winter and more violent storms. In presenting various ways to reduce our energy use, such as the development of the electric cars, one speaker said that plans could be made for electric charging stations in commuter parking lots and parking garages in every Connecticut community. He anticipates that they would work with an ATM-like card to charge electric cars while the commuters are absent from the parking garage/lot. It was clear that residents can save money by saving energy, and workshops were geared to this idea. One of the workshops was “Connecticut Community Success Stories in the Clean Energy Campaign.” Ninety-six towns have signed up for the “20 percent by 2010” campaign run by the Ct. Clean Energy Fund. Energy audits are outsourced by the power utilities to 18 certified Connecticut companies. Residents simply call their electric utility supplier and arrange for an audit by one of the certified companies to come to their home. Discounts from the $75 charge may be available.

In the workshop “How to reduce transportation emissions and improve public health,” free consulting services for setting up telecommuting programs (for doing your job from home) were discussed as well as NURide (a ride-matching program) and all Ct. Department of Transportation employer and commuter services including commuter parking lots. We hope North Haven residents will look into these services, which have expanded, in recent years. Bus services reach into nearly all the New Haven suburbs. There was a focus on “how to green your school buildings.” The Clean Energy fund will help to build new schools meeting LEED Silver or equivalent standards. Information on building green schools is available at As schools should be a learning lab for green processes, the school district of Vernon, urged by an elementary school nurse, explored how able students could walk to school. They established collection points a half mile from schools where walkers and dropped-off bus students could meet two leaders (a parent and a teacher) to walk them safely to school. They call these safe routes to schools program a “walking school bus.” By providing safe leadership, students are able to walk where there are no sidewalks. When the free panels arrive, that have been granted to North Haven because so many citizens have signed up for clean energy on their UI bills, they will be installed at North Haven High School. A qualified solar engineer studied four North Haven buildings and recommended NHHS because of its recent roof and the availability of an area on the roof near the indoor electric panel. More solar panels will be offered as more citizens sign up for

Holocaust Continued from page 15

word “Juda” became a required part of every Jew’s attire, the synagogues were closed, and schools were closed to every Jewish child. Soon came the burning of books by Jewish authors and the actual destruction of the synagogues. Truckloads of Jews were being driven into the forest for execution “…and the world was silent.” Born on the Austrian border in Czechoslovakia, the preteen was now denied by her friends as anti-Semitism spread throughout the country, and Jews were confined to the ghetto. Her relatives advised her to be “invisible” in order to avoid abuse. She wondered what would happen next when an uncle took his own life. Before long came the day that they were herded by storm troopers into cattle

cars, 50-60 people to a railroad car. A few hours later, when the trains came to a stop and the doors were finally opened, they “fell out of the cars gasping for air.” This was the first of three concentration camps in which she suffered endless inhumane treatment, including the infamous prison at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Early on, she was separated from her mother and younger brother, who were executed in the horrific gas chambers, and her father would be shot to death only two days prior to the end of the war. Her suffering continued even after the war, causing her to flee to Israel where she fought for independence in 1948. She eventually came to the United States in 1959. It was 50 years before she ever returned to visit her homeland. Periodically interrupted for a few moments of meaningful poetry by Herz, Schorr

North Haven Middle School student Zach Tabek reads a poem about the Holocaust to the audience. teachers thought it would be a special opportunity for students to hear Anita’s speech. Pam Kendrick and Mary Quinn-Devine have taught at the middle school for years and, as a new teacher, I have learned so much from both of them.” Crismale said that she had attended a seminar at Yale University in which Joanne Rudof (instrumental in producing “Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies”) had spoken to them about the archives and appropriate websites to use for Holocaust research in the classroom. After that seminar, she “decided to take the initiative and call Anita. One notable thing is to make learning ac-

had the young audience in the palm of her hand. Despite the heavy nature of the content and a lengthy, detailed presentation, there was a sense of awe in the room. At the conclusion of the program, Schorr said that she used to urge everyone “not to forget.” However, now she adds, “That’s not good enough anymore. Step in when you see injustice.” She implored them, saying that whether it’s bullying on the playground, out on the athletic field, in the classroom, or even on the Internet, “Be a hero. Step in and fight. Every one of us has to do it!” Crismale explained, “The eighth grade language arts

cessible and real for my students; Anita is someone who was their age during this adverse time, and students can relate to her.” She added that, “Anita thought that North Haven Middle School was a very special place to teach and learn. Anita was impressed with the sincere administration, courteous faculty, and respectful students.” At the close of the program a student named Zach Tabek was asked to read a poem entitled “Inspired,” which was written by a student in another setting a few months ago. A check for $200 made out to the Holocaust Child Survivors of Connecticut was donated by the parent association in appreciation of the special visit to North Haven. Crismale said that many of her students also contributed donations toward flowers that were given to the speaker after the program. She further stressed that the eighth grade Language Arts teachers had expressed their appreciation to Principal Piazza, as well as librarian Christine Schwartz, both of whom assisted with the day’s event. In regard to the elderly, yet surprisingly spry survivor of that major blot on the history of mankind, Piazza would later conclude in a written statement that, “Her words and story made it real for our students. It showed them much more than words on a page, or images on a screen. It brought to life one of the most tragic points in our world’s history. The kids were totally captivated by the experience.” In her own expression of gratitude for the success of the unforgettable event, Crismale later wrote, “This opportunity was very special and not something that every class is able to have. Anita’s time, energy, and compassion held over 300 eighth graders and several teachers completely captivated.” After her speech, “students and staff thanked her with a passionate standing ovation.” The thunderous response from her audience was clearly heartfelt.

With the victory, the Indians improved to 11-8 and captured the 2010 Oronoque Division Title, earning a spot in this year’s SCC Tournament. Senior starting pitcher Brian Salzillo earned his second win versus the Easties, while Chris LaVorgna powered the offensive charge with a 4-5 performance, including a triple and four RBIs. The Indians completed their 2010 regular season campaign with a 12-8 record by upsetting Notre Dame in West Haven; Chris LaVorgna earned the win in relief.

North Haven Rotary Foundation donates funds for higher education R

Gateway Scholarships Luigi Nuzzolillo, Rotary past president and chair of the Board of Trustees of the North Haven Rotary Foundation, presented a check to be used for student scholarships to two administrators at Gateway Community College recently. On Tuesday, May 11, Nuzzolillo presented a check in the amount of

$2,000 from the local charitable foundation to Ms. Mary Ellen Cody, Dean of Community Partnerships at Gateway in New Haven and to the Dean of Studies at Gateway, Dr. Wilson Luna. The deans also released the names of the recipients of the two $1,000 scholarships – Magali P. Bazzano and Evelyn M. Bykowski of North Haven.

Support for Quinnipiac Scholarship Luigi Nuzzolillo also recently presented a $2,000 check for the local foundation’s annual student scholarship to Dr. Betsey C. Smith, Associate Dean of the School of Health Sciences at Quinnipiac University in Hamden. Crystal Neuhauser, Director of Development for the School of Health Sciences organized the formal presentation at the University’s Graduate and Health Sciences Center in North Haven. Each fall, the North Haven Rotary Foundation provides an annual scholarship to an outstanding student from North Haven who is enrolled in the School of Health Sciences at Quinnipiac University. Dr. Smith, a graduate of Quinnipiac’s occupational therapy program, noted, “We are delighted to be the recipient of the North Haven Rotary Foundation’s continued support.” Smith and Neuhauser showcased Quinnipiac’s simulation laboratories, which are located on the university’s North Haven campus. Students in the physician assistant, nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, diagnostic imaging and radiologist assistant programs are completing their first year of classes. Dr. Smith said, “We’ve

way that we have never been before able to do. As a Quinnipiac alumna, I continue to be proud of my alma mater, and am deeply honored that the North Haven Rotary Foundation is interested in helping us provide first-inclass training to students from the North Haven community.” The North Haven Rotary Foundation is appreciative of the support they receive from Mr. and Mrs. Farooq Khan, owners of Montowese Health and Rehabilitation Center in North Haven, who provided the seed funding to establish the annual scholarship for a full-time physical therapy, occupational therapy, or nursing student enrolled in Quinnipiac University. Past recipients include Kitty K. Fan, Rachel A. Hoffman, Cassandra B. Perfetto, Jamie L. Savo, and Amanda J. Zilinski.

She then assured her listeners that the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce was all about providing support for local businesses, and she referenced the representatives of the four banks in town who were present and who would be available to discuss the financial needs of those in attendance after the meeting. Dennis O’Connor of the United Illuminating Company gave a short overview of funding available through the state in regard to conservation of electricity. In regard to power consumption

on residential and commercial properties, he mused, “We take your money and give it back to you.” He stated that there is a sum of $32 million available through UI on a first come, first served basis to the 17 towns in the area. Although the lion’s share always goes to Bridgeport and New Haven, according to O’Connor, $2-10 million will go to companies that exert a little “aggression.” O’Connor also reminded the audience about the free energy audits that help power users to control use. He said that up to 50 percent of a $10,000 project can be saved with 0 percent financing on the balance, adding that out of 4,000 small businesses, 95 percent qualified for the 0 percent financing. In regard to home energy audits, elderly and low income residents have no cost, but others pay

only $75 for a four-five-hour audit which has a value of $500. He closed his comments saying that the latest much smaller florescent light tubes provide 20 percent more light, and that by 2012 the old style wider tubes will no longer be available. Andrea Scott from the Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) said that Connecticut is fostering responsible growth of business throughout the state. She explained that numerous support services are available through her office. Her detailed presentation was divided into three categories: Technical Assistance, Tax Incentives, and DECD Financing. The Business Response Center provides a free service for anyone looking for information on assistance programs, organizations and incentives. Specialists answer questions at 1-800-392-2122 or via e-mail at The next speaker was Ken Kollmeyer from the Small Business Development Center, which is one of the many functions of DECD. He indicated that for 25 years they

have provided a wide array of technical and management assistance, training, and educational services fostering local and regional economic development. Their free services include workshops, seminars, business analysis and financial assistance. Kollmeyer emphasized that his department provides small business advocacy, including the latest information on trends in the marketplace, corporate taxes, insurance requirements, etc. Their offices are located at each of the colleges in the State University System, with CCSU hosting the main office. He added that they are proud of their on-going collaboration with the various Chambers of Commerce. Cautioning that 8 out of 10 businesses fail in the first five years, he emphasized that planning is crucial for success. Christine Reardon of the $18 million organization known as Workforce Alliance indicated that she has been a resident of North Haven for 18 years and would be happy to be approached by business folks at the local little league field while at-

tending a game. Indicating that she has ready access to federal stimulus money, she said she met Mike Freda due to her involvement with the employees facing layoffs at Marlin. Their funding can provide on the job training. Any business with fewer than 100 employees can qualify for financial support if they are willing to pay a minimum of $12 hour for at least 32 hours of work. Reardon explained that a business with fewer than 50 employees can receive up to 90 percent assistance toward work paying $20 an hour. Between 50-100 employees qualifies for up to 75 percent assistance, and over 100 workers can mean 50 percent reimbursement through the Alliance. Indicating that the labor pool is huge due to the poor economy, she stated that Workforce Alliance helped Whole Foods in Milford get their business started last year when they hired over 100 people. Referencing a partiality for “green” businesses, she also mentioned that customized training is available through them.

Flamingos Continued from page 11 ly atmosphere,” youth group leader Erin Lafex, who will attend her first volunteer trip to the sunny South, said that it was an opportunity to learn to be “the hands and feet of Christ.” Her counterpart, Pam LaFrance, a young adult group leader, who is returning in July with her teenaged son, Josh LaFrance, said that both adults and kids receive appropriate assignments that range from challenging yard work to visiting the elderly in convalescent homes. Ten of the parish youth and four young adults will help the needy in the Manassas community this year. There are two types of mission work that can be selected by interested volunteers. The Work Camp mission has home repair as its focus. The Week of Hope, which is the choice for the North Haven contingent, has a focus on community service, thus providing a broader degree of

experiences. The local group selected the week of July 1823, which has a minimum age of 12 years and specializes on activities for students in their middle and high school years. The cost borne by each person traveling to Manassas is $262 to cover room and board during their stay. The other camp options offered by Group Workcamps nearest to North Haven include Pittsburgh, PA and Newark, NY. LaFrance said that the Virginia site was the only one available when they were researching places last year, but it was such a valuable experience that they chose to return. Donations in support of the excursion are always welcome. This month’s church newsletter quotes Pastor Piscatelli when describing the results of a recent survey of his congregation stating, “…it was determined that we need to grow mostly in our personal relationships with God.” It would appear that the youth of the parish are certainly on that path.

The North Haven Art Guild hosted their 43rd annual Spring Art Show at Gallery 27, located in the North Haven Cultural Center at 27 Broadway, continuing a rich tradition of art made by and for the community. The guild hosted their first spring show in 1967 after it was founded in 1966 by Mary Lou Fiore, who is co-president of the guild along with her husband Joe Fiore. According to Fiore, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show ranks among the best. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The art is excellent this year,â&#x20AC;? said Fiore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The judge was very pleased.â&#x20AC;? The Spring Art Show is the guildâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major event, and a lot of careful planning goes into it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an all-member show. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a big juried show. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re promoting art and culture in North Haven, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our purpose. We had 54 pieces and 31 members exhibiting. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always had a judge for the show,â&#x20AC;? said Fiore. Each year, the Fiores carefully select a new judge. They require that the judge be either a professional artist or an art teacher. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s judge is James Grabowski, of Marlborough, whose work has been pur-

ford, was charged $41,898 in first, second, and third floor permit fees for construction. Based on the building department fee schedule in place during 2003, construction value for permit fees is $65 per square foot for first floor living space, and $45 per square foot for second and third floors. Using those figures, $3,490,900 in construction value was correctly tallied. However, 78,210 minus 67,380 equals 10,830 in potentially unaccounted living space – 3,634 first floor and 6,923 second and third floor square feet. As that space may not have been originally charged, current construction values would apply: $110 per first floor square foot and $95 per second and third floor square foot. Multiplying 3,634 by 110 equals $399,740 in uncharged first floor construction value. Multiplying 6,923 by 95 equals $657,685 in uncharged

second and third floor construction value. Adding $399,740 and $657,685 equals $1,057,425. Construction permit fees are $18 for the first $1,000 of construction value, and then $12 for each additional $1,000 of construction value. Charging $18 for the first $1,000 of $1,057,425 leaves $1,056,425; charging $12 for every remaining $1,000 of construction value, and adding $18, equals $12,695 in construction permit fees possibly owed. Missing permits Tuscan Villa’s site plan, approvals, and submissions indicate that all 59 units include porches. However, the 2003 building permit application does not list porch construction measurements. A space on the form for such information has been left blank. Additionally, town hall’s building file for 415 Clintonville Road does not contain porch permits. Porch construction permit fees are a flat fee of $75 each.

“Our appraisal was done by a certified appraisal company,” he said. Maiden has continued to be unavailable for comment because, according to a Town Hall employee, he has been out of work with a back injury. Maiden previously told The Citizen that he must exercise caution due to state investigations, and cannot be

interviewed until after the investigation finishes. The potential missing porch construction fees were discovered during The North Haven Citizen’s ongoing investigation into the building department.

North Haven’s late fee is $100 permit. Therefore, $175 may be owed for each of 59 porches, equaling $10,325 in potentially missing porch dues. Totals and comments Adding $12,695 and $10,325 equals $23,020 possibly not charged to Tuscan Villa’s constructors. A Vigliotti representative, who wished to remain anonymous, said Wednesday that he believed Tuscan Villa’s decks should not have required separate permits. “They’re enclosed,” he said, “so I think they’re part of the structure themselves. The decks are not protruding.” “That building is one combined structure,” he added. When questioned about potential living space discrepancy, the builder’s representative referred to a New Haven Savings Bank property appraisal, stamped March 13, 2003, that listed Tuscan Villa’s total space 66,800 square feet, and proposed living space as 53,000 square feet.

been Poppy Day. Volunteers sponsored by several veterans groups sell small red artificial poppies to help disabled and needy veterans. The money collected is used for medical and educational services. After World War I, the poppy became the symbol of the tragedy of war and the renewal of life because poppies bloomed on many French battlefields. Artificial poppies were sold in the United States to aid children in France and Belgium who were victims of war. The American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars held poppy sales to aid veterans in the early 1920s. After that, other groups working for and with veterans joined the campaign. Several communities claim to have originated Memorial Day, but in 1966 the U.S. government proclaimed Waterloo, New York, the birthplace of the holiday. The people of Waterloo first ob-

served Memorial Day on May 5, 1866 to honor soldiers who had died in the Civil War. Today, we continue to celebrate Memorial Day as the day to honor all those brave men and women who have died while fighting for freedom and democracy, and we also remember all those presently serving in the armed forces fighting to keep us free and to ensure and protect the prosperity of democracy. It is also a sentimental and special tribute of thanks to all veterans for their selfless and brave efforts and sacrifices they have made through the decades to protect freedom for all Americans and future generations. On this Memorial Day, take time to reflect on the true meaning of this day and be grateful for the sacrifices that our servicemen and women have made and are still making by visiting the graves of loved ones and fallen soldiers and placing flow-

ers and/or small flags on their graves, participating in or attending a parade in your hometown, and saying “thank you” to a veteran you may know with a salute, hug or handshake. We must always remember on this Memorial Day and all those that follow that this holiday is not about barbecues and picnics, a three-day weekend for leisure and pleasure, camping trips and get-away trips, or a day off from school or work, but a day for remembrance, respect and reflection upon the privileges we have living in a country governed by democracy, justice and freedom for all its citizens. It is for this purpose that we must never forget those courageous souls who made this all possible. So while we can we should remember, honor, commemorate and cherish this special holiday we call Memorial Day.

chased by IBM, Aetna and Royal Caribbean among others. Although the guild has led a relatively quiet existence inside the North Haven Cultural Center since moving there in 1979, it has been responsible for a number of unprecedented occurrences –including being the first organization to hold an event on the town green other than Memorial Day services, and the first to hang a banner over Washington Avenue.

Harriet Graicerstein’s “Young Woman with Golden Hair.”

Mary Lou Fiore’s “Mexican Pottery.” According to Mary Lou and Joe Fiore, the first-ever art show hosted by the guild took place on the green in August of 1966. Artwork was hung from clotheslines that stretched between trees. The show on the green continued for 25 years – until the early ‘90s, when the Fiores decided they wanted to focus their time on Gallery 27. According to Joe Fiore, the guild’s banners were hung over Washington Avenue with the help of the North Haven Fire Department. See Art, next page

Art Continued from page 26 “We had to go to then First Selectman Elmer Davis and ask permission to use the green to display our club’s art. He said, ‘I can give you space over at the high school.’ Then we said, ‘If the town of Guilford lets their artists use the green, why can’t we have it?’ Then he let us,” said Mary Lou Fiore. Before moving into the cultural center –f ormerly the first North Haven Public Library – in 1979, the guild was housed in an art room at the old Center Street Elementary School before it was converted into the Town Hall Annex. The art guild is a vital piece of North Haven’s cultural legacy. “North Haven is, if not the first, one of the first towns in the state of Connecticut to have a cultural center,” said Fiore. Businesses within the community have been very supportive, donating the money necessary to help the guild flourish from year to year, which helps the guild to maintain equality among its members. “There is no best art here,” said Joe Fiore. “Everyone is equal. We get a little bit of money from businesses and everyone gets a little check.”

Murder Continued from page 2 Detectives are interviewing witnesses and analyzing evidence from both the bar and the Ames’ home. The Ct. State Police Central District Major Crime Squad and the Office of the Chief State’s Medical Examiner in Farmington are assisting in this investigation.

Ames also had a failure to appear conviction for a misdemeanor in 1996.
