Composer, chords and classmates By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Student musicians in the North Haven Middle School band were well acquainted with the writer of two pieces they performed at their spring concert Wednesday night — the composer was a fellow classmate. Local eighth-grader Ben Papsun crafted two songs on the concert program, Staterae and Event Horizon. “I’ve been here for 13 years — this is only the second time I’ve ever had a student compose something for us,” said NHMS seventh- and eighth-grade band Director Brian Hutton. “The kids absolutely love both pieces. The pieces are age-appropriate in difficulty, but still challenge the kids to play something a little bit harder.”

Papsun, who has played piano since he was seven and tenor saxophone for four years, said that he regularly composes music for his own enjoyment. “Somewhere around December I randomly walked up to Mr. Hutton and asked if I could possibly write a piece for the school band to play,” Papsun said. Hutton approved the proposal. “As a musician, Ben has an excellent ear,” the teacher said. “He also has a great attention to detail plus a great drive for success.” So Papsun began work on the first of two songs, Staterae, which he explained is Latin for “balance,” an appropriate title considering the piece’s wide-ranging aim. “I tried to give each instruSee Musicians, page 10

Unlikely goalie buoys lax By Kevin Pataky and Kyle Swartz Special to the Citizen About one hour before North Haven High School boys’ varsity lacrosse faced Amity in Woodbridge last Monday, senior Alec Uyeki got the news that he would not suit up as usual for offense. “At the very last minute, we asked him to play goal, because out normal goalie had to sit out with an injury,” said NHHS head coach Bill Altman. “Uyeki went from being an offensive player to becoming our goalie.” Uyeki was up to the challenge. Behind his 17 saves, the Indians topped Amity 65 in a back-and-forth affair. “Uyeki had a phenomenal game — that was key,” said Altman. “But so many guys deserve shout-outs. It was a real team effort.” Uyeki’s brother Colin scored two goals for North Haven, as did teammate Jimmy Fredericks. Indians Quincy Pecora and Chris Broadbent added one goal apiece. “It was a huge win for us,” Altman said. “I don’t know if North Haven has

Below, goalie Alec Uyeki makes a save. ever beaten Amity in the history of our program.” North Haven’s defense proved the difference maker in this low-scoring, onegoal game. “Our defense has been such a strong suit all season long,” Altman said. “Going into the season we knew our defense would be a strength for us, and it has held true to that.” Amity scored first in the opening quarter, but North Haven netted a pair of quick goals to take back the

lead at 2-1. The Spartans countered with another tally to end the first quarter knotted at two goals each. The defensive battle continued into the second quarter as Amity managed only one goal while holding the Indians scoreless to head into halftime up 3-2. “The kids were a little somber going into halftime,” Altman said. “They didn’t really know what was going on.” During the intermission, Indian coaches erupted into a boisterous motivational speech to try to spark the captains and the rest of the team. Then the captains stepped up and finished the speech about working hard and playing up to one’s potential. The move paid off. North Haven came out with extra spring in their step and took charge of the game, scoring three quick goals to build up a 5-3 lead while holding the See Lacrosse, page 20

She turned a hobby into a successful business a successful card business called Uniquely Yours Cards. “I started Uniquely Yours Cards in 1995,” Fowler said. She already had been applying her artistic skills professionally. “In the early 1990s, I hand-painted and stenciled clothing, sweatshirts and tee shirts, wooden articles, and needlepoint pictures,” she said. “After accepting money

During these difficult economic times, many people are struggling to make ends meet and thus are exploring new ideas and options for employment and relief. Longtime North Haven resident Sallie Fowler has turned a creative hobby into

craft and toy stores and this gave me the opportunity to experiment with more stamps and inks.” Fowler’s talent began to grow. Sometime later Gary Benzel, owner of the former Windsor Shop in North Haven, gave her impetus — teaching after-school and adult-education programs. She was hired by Benzel to demonstrate the holiday houses and snow baby stamps at his Christmas Open House events. “Working for Gary gave me great exposure and was a rewarding experience,” Fowler said. “I initially only made cards for friends, relatives, and co-workers. Then I started taking orders for holiday cards, which eventually led to the start of a division called Uniquely Yours Cards.” “I call my company, which I operate from home Uniquely Yours Cards because I am creating products, one-at-atime, that depict the personality and preferences of my recipients and their friends and relatives, and each item

for a sweatshirt set and then taking offers for more items, I realized that it wasn’t a hobby anymore. By the end of 1995, I discovered rubber stamping and the rest is history.” Fowler explained that in November of 1995 she was teaching religious education and needed a snowflake die cut for a class activity. While shopping in a parent/teacher store in Massachusetts, she found a rubberstamp of a snowman and some die ink. Having experience with tissue paper and cardstock, Fowler made some holiday cards. “The holiday cards were a big hit and later I found two books on rubber-stamp making and taught myself,” Fowler said. “At that time there were no rubber stamp stores in Connecticut and no rubber stamps in craft stores. Most of the manufacturers were in California.” Fowler continued, “I did not give up and I was fortunate to be hired by Hero Rubber Stamps in California to demonstrate their stamps in

is unique and special,” she added. Through the years Fowler has expanded her collection and products, which now include greeting cards for most of life’s yearly events such as birthdays, graduation, weddings, get-well occasions, thinking of you, thank you, anniversary, sympathy, summer, invitations and the various holidays. “There is a lot of competition in my field, but I feel that my company stands out because my marketing plan includes not just making and selling cards, but sharing the crafts with others by way of adult education programs, at libraries and other workshops, and craft shows,” said Fowler. “I have participated in North Haven’s Show and Sell for the past two years and also have participated in the Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven.” Fowler is currently trying to sell her cards on a consignment basis, and her cards are now for sale at a

Blessings go both ways on my Simply Smiles trip By Andrea Pomponio Special to the Citizen In April 2009, I attended an international mission trip to Oaxaca, Mexico jointly organized by Simply Smiles — a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of impoverished children — and Silver Lake Conference Center, a United Church of Christ

youth camp. I was one of 29 volunteers from Connecticut to participate. We all met in Fairfield to carpool to JFK Airport for the five-hour flight to Mexico City. After catching a connecting flight to Oaxaca, we arrived at Casa Hogar, the orphanage where our group was based. Children there range from infants and toddlers to teens.

After attending a threehour church service with the children of Casa Hogar on Sunday, our work week began on Monday. We worked an eight-hour day at the city dump, which was a mountain of garbage covered in dirt to compact the

Rotary learns about “Simply Smiles” Bryan Nurnberger of Westport is the president and founder of “Simply Smiles, “a humanitarian not-for-profit organization that is “dedicated to providing bright futures while improving the daily lives of impoverished children.” Utilizing a PowerPoint presentation, the one-time rock climber, originally from Naugatuck, described how he had traveled the world seeking adventure prior to a serious injury 10 years ago. The young CEO brought his moving message to the North Haven Rotary Club recently, and remained after the breakfast meeting offering bagged ground coffee which was grown in “a shockingly poor region of Oaxaca, Mexico” and shipped to Bethel, for roasting and packaging. Nurnberger shared that the proceeds from one bag of coffee would feed a starving Mexican child for three weeks. Headquartered in nearby

Norwalk, the 501c3 has gathered the assistance of over 2,000 volunteers from across the world during the past six years, working both in Mexico, and on a Sioux Tribe Reservation in South Dakota. Nurnberger spends 60 percent of his time living among the poor who reside in bamboo huts in mountainous Mexico and whose children used to eat leaves to offset the agony of starvation. The development of “The Village Project” to provide basic homes is one focus of his dream for the people he has come to love. To learn how to bring smiles to a family in desperate poverty go to Pictured: Bryan Nurnberger, left, with Rotary President Guy Casella at the Breakfast Nook after describing his mission to serve the poor.

ment a part, a section where that instrument shines among the other ones,” the eighth-grader said. “It’s an equilibrium.” “It’s sort of like a movie soundtrack,” he added. “It starts off slow, and then builds up.” True to his intentions, Staterae incorporated musical roles for 15 different instruments, including two different trumpet parts, euphonium, triangle, violin and bass clarinet. “He knew exactly which students and instruments he was writing for,” Hutton said. “He really customized this to

our group of kids, and I applaud that.” Staterae is approximately 3.5 minutes long. Papsun wrote his tunes in the computer program Finale 2012, a modern method which actually slowed completion of the first piece. “I was working on it and I went into the computer to access the file and I found that half of it was gone,” he said. “It had all been erased and I couldn’t do anything to recover it.” However, the unexpected loss turned out to be a catalyst for creativity. “Looking at the end-product, I think it worked out for the better, because I had to change a lot of things which I wouldn’t have

changed otherwise,” he said. “Even though I wasn’t the happiest camper at the time, it worked out in the end.” Having never used Finale 2012 before, Staterae took some time to finish. But with the first song under his belt, Papsun composed Event Horizon — 3.5 minutes in length, but less complex than Staterae — in just two weeks. “Event Horizon is more rockish, kind of like the Mission Impossible theme,” he said. “It’s fast-paced and aggressive.” To compose a song, Papsun begins with the primary melody. “I make the main melody and then I give it to whatever instrument I want it to go to,” he said. “Then I start thinking which other instruments would sound good simultaneously. I start thinking about countermelody. Sometimes I just experiment to see what works.” “If I get an idea in my

head, I can’t just leave it there — I have to do something about it,” he added. “If I have the main melody playing in the background with nothing else, then I can really begin fleshing out what could work.” For influence, Papsun listens all over. “I have a lot of really weird musical tastes,” he said. “My usage of an unusual time signature — 5/4 — is inspired by the band Dream Theater. They use many different time signatures.” “I’m really into progressive rock, which is rock for people who get bored by normal melodies,” he added. During the concert, Papsun played tenor sax in Staterae and piano in Event Horizon. Fellow performers of the 85-member band have been supportive of their classmate’s compositions. “I wasn’t expecting the response to be as positive, but

it really has been,” Papsun said. “People keep telling me that these are some of their favorite songs. They tell me that the songs get stuck in their heads. That’s pretty much what you’re going for when you write something. You want to make sure it’s accessible.” Papsun said that he never could have written either piece without the help and encouragement of numerous people. “I have to give a lot of credit to my band,” he said. “They really pulled together in a short amount of time. We only had a month or so to practice the first one. We’ve only had two or three sessions for the second one.” “Mr. Hutton has been absolutely fantastic — he’s been meeting with me and helping me throughout this,” he added. “And Mr. Hutton absolutely pulled the band together in a way that nobody else could.” Papsun also credited his piano teacher Art Bellucci as being instrumental in helping with multipart music composition.

Getting greener

The Agway store at 66 State Street in North Haven recently added a 3,000-square-foot greenhouse to its retail showroom. The greenhouse provides customers opportunity to shop for annual flowering plants, vegetables, herbs and hanging flower baskets in a weather-protected and climate-controlled environment. The greenhouse also enables Agway to offer a greater selection of these plants – expanding customer choice and the length of the seasonal availability. “We are always looking for ways to enhance our customers’ shopping experience,” said John Bergantino, business owner. “The new greenhouse gives both our avid and weekend gardeners easier access to our plants while providing protection from the elements when making their selection. It also allows us to expand our line of vegetable and herb plants to meet increased demand as people seek to grow their own food.” Photo and content Submitted by Jim Rochford

have proven to be a successful, educational and enjoyable venture. Fowler believes that everyone should pursue their dreams, use their talents wisely and never give up. “My suggestions for people who want to start their own business are to research their ideas, check-out the competition, get a mentor, sign up for websites and get your product out to the public, especially by word of mouth, which is effective and very reasonable,” said Fowler. “Remember — don’t be afraid of falling flat on your face the first few times. Always keep an open mind and explore new ideas. You need the experience of failure in order to taste the delicious victories that will be yours in the end.” Fowler concluded by saying, “Enjoy what you are doing and share with others. My company is a fun business and every card I make is made from creativity and a labor of love that brings smiles to my customers and me.” For more information, please visit, or email m, or write to P.O.

Among the children that I met were Angelito, born with no eyes, but he manages just fine; Luz, born deaf, although she does so well, I didn’t realize she could not hear until later in the week; and Ricardo, in a wheelchair, who spent the first eight years of his life tied to a chair because his family didn’t know how to care for him. The children were warm and friendly, and thrived on the friendship we provided — we, in return, were blessed to meet them.

earns this way is approximately $12 per month. I saw two boys picking through the trash looking for books so they could learn to read, because they had to work in the dump rather than attend school. Many families live in tiny homes on the outskirts of the dump. Our job was to build a house for a woman named Soledad. We spent the first couple days chipping cinderblocks, sifting sand and mixing cement before layering these cinderblock bricks into a home. The homes are only one room, probably about the size of a bedroom in a Connecticut house. They are 10 bricks high in front, and 11 in the back to allow for water to run off the roof. The house had only two windows and one door. Like all other residences at the dump, it had no plumbing or electricity. Soledad’s entire family was to live in this house, which seemed much too small; however, on our final night she told us, “In my

70 years, I have never received such a gift.” Our group completed other tasks such as painting a house built by a previous work group. We painted the outside bright orange and the inside pale orange, as it is the custom for the recipients of the homes to choose the color. When that was completed, we dug an eight foot hole to serve as a latrine for another family. Each night, we came back to Casa Hogar and played with the children. Casa Hogar is the only orphanage south of Mexico City to accept children with special needs. Children come to Casa Hogar for a better life because their families can-

At first mostly women bought my cards, but now I’m noticing more men are interested in my cards because of my varied greetings.” Fowler contributes her artistic interests to her mother, who was an artist. When Fowler was a girl she always enjoyed arts and crafts. She believes that the process starts with an idea, or a color combination and event, or holiday. Her inspiration file includes ideas from magazines, sketches and composition ideas, and other people’s suggestions. “I then pull all the elements together — stamps, inks, die cuts, tools, paper and embellishments, and the finished product resembles the idea,” said Fowler. “My future plans include more cards for die cuts, making embellishments, baby items, and also working on more journals, stationery and presentation folders. My cards have received many nice compliments from family, friends and people I do not know.” For Fowler, the love for arts and crafts, coupled with determination to create one’s own personal business,

CitizenOpinion Letters to the Editor

Postal propaganda

Editor: The US Postal Service is hell-bent on eliminating Saturday delivery and closing many processing centers around the country. If successful, this will be only the first step towards the demise of the Service. This is part of the master plan, concocted by high ranking members of management and certain members of Congress, who preach the concept of privatization. Ask any old timer, in the service, or retiree, and they can tell you of many of the schemes and “experiments” concocted by management, over the years. They always manage to “shoot themselves in the foot.” One such experiment took place in the late 1980s. A local supervisor came up with a plan of moving many carriers to the Brewery Street location in New Haven. This included

many from outlying offices in the New Haven area. The result was much more overtime, more gasoline consumption and, in general, a very expensive deal for the service. (Not to mention, very late mail delivery for many patrons.) The idea was abandoned after about one year. The supervisor involved was rewarded by a transfer to Hartford, and kicked upstairs. The public should be aware of the lesson learned: Do not be taken in by any propaganda put out by Postal Management, at any level. (The writer is a retired letter carrier.) George P. Lamarsh North Haven

Standing up for the middle class By Susan Bysiewicz Since announcing my candidacy for the US Senate in January of 2011, I have had the opportunity to meet with people throughout Connecticut. No matter where I go the story I hear is the same. People feel that America is facing an economic calamity caused by corporate special interests, Wall Street, and a Congress that takes orders from these groups instead of the middle class. The economy is broken, millions of homeowners are underwater on their mortgages, and small businesses cannot get the loans they need to make their business work. This was all caused because Wall Street played fast and loose with the rules and gambled on our economy. They gambled, we lost, and the bill is being paid by us. This is why I wrote an Accountability Plan that outlines real, meaningful, and detailed proposals to hold Wall Street, corporate special interests, and Washington accountable to the middle class. My plan would put the middle class first again, and it wouldn’t cost taxpayers more: in fact, it would reduce the debt nearly $2 trillion over the next 10 years, a lot more than the dysfunctional Washington “debt commission” could muster. My plan starts with a simple idea: make Wall Street repay some of the money they

made on the backs of the middle class through highrisk gambling, and use those funds to help the homeowners who have been dragged down in the economic disaster Wall Street created. Specifically, Wall Street banks committed fraud by selling sub-prime mortgage derivatives at the same time they were betting against those derivatives with credit default swaps. They took outrageous risks on highly leveraged bets. So we should make Wall Street repay this money through a small transaction tax that impacts short-term, high volume trading. With these funds, we can provide mortgage relief to middle class families whose homes are now worth less than they owe. This will help millions of middle class homeowners, stabilize the housing market, boost our economy, and save our country nearly $1.4 trillion over the next ten years. My plan also returns our focus in this country to the middle class: giving them the tax breaks, not the big corporations, and giving them the loudest voice in Washington, not the special interests, lobbyists, and incumbent Members of Congress who exist in a cozy Washington cocoon. It would end corporate welfare by eliminating all special interest tax breaks See Middle, next page

An Ounce of Prevention

State column

‘Juice-y’ news By V. Deborah Culligan

Remember the days when you had juice with breakfast just because it tasted good? Remember when there were only a few kinds of juices to choose from: orange, grapefruit, tomato or grape? Remember when you chose juice by what you liked rather than by what it could do for you? Today, juice products claim all kinds of health benefits. But are they really true? Is juice always the best food choice for the nutrition claim being promised? The makers of juices and juice products have gone crazy with nutritional claims. But you will never get the same nutrition benefits from a glass of juice as you would from a piece of fruit, especially in terms of fiber content. Moreover, it has been demonstrated that eating a fruit makes you feel

fuller and more satisfied than drinking a glass of juice. (This is important for those trying to lose or watch their weight.) In the January/February 2008 edition of The Nutrition Action Healthletter, several interesting points were made about juice and good nutrition. A few key points of the article included: — For the most part, juices, even with extra pulp, are not good sources of fiber. The only juice with significant fiber content is prune juice. — If you are concerned about getting enough vitamins, take a once-a-day vitamin supplement, rather than

State of technology

relying on a juice. You will be sure of the amount of the vitamins you are getting and will not get the calories that come with the juice. Juices with added calcium and Vitamin D can help people reach their daily targets. — Most of the nutrition claims made on juices are “structural” claims rather than “functional” claims. Structural claims do not require the level of scientific proof that a functional claims does. For example, a juice can claim it “helps protect healthy joints” but it cannot say it helps arthritis. — Don’t be misled by an American Heart Association checkmark on a juice product. This symbol generally means that a product is low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Well, most juices (and fruits) are! See Juice, page 23

middle class in this country: through a real energy plan that will create millions of jobs in clean American energy and free us from foreign energy supplied by our enemies; by realigning our military strength to a smarter posture that meets the needs of the 21st century; and by putting in place a coherent plan on immigration that is fair to American taxpayers, practical, and lasting, and can create millions more jobs and higher wages for Americas. If we want to get serious about fixing our economy it

means standing up for the middle class. It means ensuring we have an economic system that favors them instead of Wall Street and corporate special interests. My plan accomplishes these goals and will move our country forward.

We also need to end the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy and fix the Alternative Minimum Tax that makes many middle class families pay a higher tax rate than the wealthiest Americans. It would also save nearly $1 trillion over the next ten years. My plan also gets our focus back to creating jobs, opportunity, and security for the


By Kyle Swartz There is much risk and reward in Connecticut’s reported plans to allocate $250 million over five years to back high-tech startup companies. While job creation and economic expansion are possible advantageous outcomes, like any venture investment this has no guarantee to produce returns. At the very least, though, by openly allotting funds for smallbusiness aid, legislators appear serious about fostering a more pro-business atmosphere in a state not necessarily known to have one. According to a recent Associated Press article, “Half of the $250 million will come from returns on investment tied to the performance of the volatile stock market, with the other half coming from the state Bond Commission.” Project leaders are the Bond Commission and Connecticut Innovations, the state’s semi-public venture investment agency. Primary motivation is to lower Connecticut unemployment, which has remained above 8 percent since May 2009. Bringing in new businesses potentially on the verge of blooming could help grow employment opportunities, especially in top-paying, in-demand markets. Already, state leaders are perceptively targeting companies in life sciences, medical devices, information technology, software and digital media. Of course, danger exists in supporting startups. Percentages which eventually turn large profits for initial investors are low. Some state-backed businesses will fold, showing nothing for money which could have funded other forms of addressing unemployment problems. And many companies only refund the principal plus some return — actually, not

a regrettable scenario for Connecticut, for spending at least yielded extra jobs. Regardless of monetary payoffs, this initiative is a positive step toward ending Connecticut’s unhelpful reputation to some as being business-unfriendly. Modern technology has created a global marketplace where competition for top-earning companies — important municipal taxpayers — occurs in a worldwide arena. Each day, different states and countries fight to entice away Connecticut’s and America’s best businesses by offering fiscal incentives. For our state to retain firstclass companies, or to be home for tomorrow’s highlevel businesses, we must give such organizations worthwhile reasons to remain. Beyond incentives such as $250 million worth of investments, the state contains another asset of value here — universities and colleges like Yale, UConn and Quinnipiac. Institutions of higher learning supply research opportunities and well-educated personnel for high-tech workplaces, especially when the two organizations are within close proximity. By increasing numbers of businesses which specialize in technology and other contemporary fields, Connecticut can retain its intellectual capital before these people leave for lucrative careers elsewhere in America or other countries. Politicians are wise to offer seed money for modern companies but should extend deals only after thorough scrutiny of each business and its prospect for profitability. Although this boils down to risk and reward, one benefit is definite. Legislators have crafted a plan which should help chip away at notions that Connecticut is antiSee Technology, page 19

Chiropractor tip of the week

Bike Fit 101. There are five main components to a bike: frame size, seat height, seat position, seat tilt and handlebar position. To check the seat position, sit on your bicycle — using a friend or a stationary object to keep yourself balanced — and rotate your pedals until they are horizontal (at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions). If your seat is positioned properly, your forward knee should be directly over the respective pedal axle (with the ball of your foot on the pedal). If adjustments are needed, loosen the seat post and slide the seat saddle forward or backward, keeping the seat level. Next week seat tilt and handlebar position will be covered.

But we told out plays to throw all of those out the window and told them to make this personal, to go one-on-one” “We adjusted,” he added. “We began doing a lot of draw-and-bump, in which our kid runs past his defender, draws another defender who comes over to help, and then our kid passes to the teammate whose defender has just left him.” The Indians scored the first goal in the fourth quarter to expand their lead to 6-3 and then hung on as Amity scored a couple of late goals to close out a hard-fought 6-5 North Haven win. “I’m really proud of the kids,” Altman said. “They did all the little things we asked them to do. They responded very well to coaching. It was a tremendous team effort.” “Our defense did a great job,” he added. “And ball possession was critical. In a onegoal game, it only takes one play to make a difference.” With six games remaining, the win improved the Indians’ record to 6-4 overall and moved them to within one win of qualifying for the State’s Class L Championship, which begins later in May.
