Local entrepreneur receives CT Small Business Award By Paul Colella Special to the Citizen

North Haven resident, entrepreneur, and lifelong supporter of figure skating, Christopher Bartlett, received the 2009 Connecticut

Chris Bartlett

Small Business Person of the Year Award, given by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), for 35 years of dedication and commitment to the figure skating industry and the business world. Bartlett has enjoyed figure skating since he was a little boy and has dedicated his working life to figure skating in the entertainment field as well as starting business ventures and owning and operating his own business to get the public more involved in the sport. “In 1968, when I was three years old, I saw the Winter Olympics on television and from that moment I told my parents I wanted to skate,” recalled Bartlett. “My family was very supportive, and I was determined to become a professional skater like Dorothy Hamill, who was my role model.”

Since his childhood, Bartlett has grown his roots in figure skating in a myriad of ways. He has skated with Disney On Ice, coached, directed, operated a rink, and even served as a technician at U.S. Figure Skating’s National Championships and the ISU World Championships. He is also a member of U.S. Figure Skating, the Professional Skater’s Association, the Ice Skating Institute, and a board of directors member of Skate for Joy, a non-profit organization based in Providence, R.I. that brings skating to inner city children. He has been recognized by his customers, peers, and students as a true ambassador for the figure skating world. On a daily basis he assists all his students from the beginners just See Bartlett, page 19

Two legal matters involving North Haven Town Hall continue to proceed toward a courtroom. In the matter of Bob Burns versus the town of North Haven, a show cause hearing held June 9 in New Haven Superior Court produced a ruling of just cause, said Chip Walsh, Burns’ attorney. Therefore, an official hearing for the matter has been scheduled for June 30 at 9:30 a.m., in which a verdict will be given by New Haven Superior Court on whether North Haven will be forced to hold a special town meeting to vote on the reinstatement of Burns’ eliminated engineer-two position. Meanwhile, the civil rights violation and retaliation accusations made last month by First Selectman’s office assistant Leigh Gomez against Town Hall also continue as both sides solidify their cases. Gomez, an African American, claimed last month in a letter of intent sent to the first selectman’s office by her attorney Eugene Axelrod, of Axelrod and Associ-

ates in Woodbridge, that her civil rights had been violated by First Selectman Janet McCarty. The letter alleged that McCarty denied Gomez a previously promised position and then went about a circuitous plan to force Gomez into leaving the selectman’s office on the minority’s own accord. The letter further alleged that after Gomez was denied the promised position, she was forced to apply for town jobs for which she had little qualification, and now faces imminent unemployment. The first selectman’s office is claiming that Gomez’s pending departure is simply due to her not living up to the previously outlined expectations of her current position. “Yesterday, council for the First Selectman’s office sent us a letter saying that they will make the argument that Gomez had poor job performance,” said Micah Notz, senior paralegal for Axelrod and Associates. “First Selectman McCarty is claiming that she advised Gomez that she wasn’t performing her job properly,” Notz continued, “but there is

North Haven sees first confirmed case of swine flu By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

One student at North Haven Middle School has been confirmed to have a case of the swine flu, or H1N1 virus, according to Superintendent Sara-Jane Querfeld. A second student from Green Acres Elementary School is suspected to be suffering from H1N1, Querfeld said, adding that both students had already been home sick “for five days” when suspicions of swine flu were aroused. Both students also continue to remain at home as they convalesce. HIN1 is transmittable for “five to seven days,” said Quinnipiac Valley Health District Director of Health Leslie Balch, adding that swine flu signs include influenza markers such as temperature in excess of 100 degrees, coughing, and a sore throat. “We advise anyone infected with influenza-like symptoms to stay home for seven days so that they can’t pass it

on to other people,” Balch said. Although much had initially been made on the severity of the swine flu, H1N1 has since been seen as less of a threat than previously thought. “We were thinking initially, before we knew how the virus was going to behave in the human population, that it could be severe,” Balch said, “but most people have recovered from it without medical treatment.” “This strain of the flu is not as potent as we originally thought,” Querfeld said. Querfeld said that she was informed of the cases on Monday, and posted a letter the same day to warn of the findings. In the letter, Querfeld recommended that students showing signs of a flulike illness should remain home for seven days and that any flu-related absences should be called in with specifications of the reason. Additionally, Querfeld said in the letter that she and the QVHD expect that the swine flu will continue to

spread throughout the town and the school system, but added that the QVHD has not recommended a closure of the schools at this time. “In the community, we do have influenza of the novel H1N1 virus,” Balch said. “It’s not surprising. I do expect more cases in the school system and the community.” Querfeld said that the announcement of sicknesses has not affected school attendance. “I called around today and it’s just an average day,” Querfeld said of school attendance. Despite the calmed fears of a more deadly disease, Balch cautioned that H1N1 is still very serious. “However,” Balch said, “any influenza does have the chance to cause severe disease in certain people.” To better one’s chances against catching H1N1, or any influenza, Balch recommends frequent and thorough washing of the hands, as well as covering one’s mouth when coughing or nose when sneezing. Also, Balch said, make sure to stay

home if you already are ill. Querfeld said that since the original outbreak of H1N1, North Haven public school’s custodians have upped their efforts. “Our custodians have done a superb job sanitizing the schools since April when the swine flu first came out,” Querfeld said. “They’ve been cleaning bathrooms and sanitizing everything from fountains to doorknobs.” Querfeld and Balch were not sure as to the timetable for diagnosing the Green Acres case. Querfeld said that the delay is probably because the case does not appear to be severe. “I don’t think they’re even going to check,” Querfeld said of the Green Acres case. “Most flu is swine flu nowadays, and they’re only confirming the severe cases.” Indeed, H1N1 is this season’s ubiquitous flu. “In the state of Connecticut, upwards of 90 percent of the influenza cases tested are H1N1,” Balch said. “It is the predominant strain of influenza at the moment.”

Balch added that the number of individuals showing influenza like-symptoms has been spiking. Additionally, Balch said that while she understands that it may be difficult, especially in this economic climate, for the sick to remain at home during their illness, time off taken for recovery remains the best way to prevent the spread of H1N1. “We don’t like seeing people get ill,” Balch said. “We’d like to slow it if possible.”

necticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities regarding the matter of Gomez, according to First Selectman’s office employee Barbara Feinberg. When reached, Axelrod said that the original accusation of civil rights abuse and the additional retaliation charge have been filed jointly with the CHRO. Axelrod said that his office filed the complaint approximately a week ago, adding that the delay is due to statutory CHRO procedures. “The CHRO has up to 20

days to send out the complaint,” Axelrod said. “They will send it and the First Selectman will be getting it.” Notz said that Axelrod and Associates has since been contacted by North Haven’s attorney James Sconzo of Jorden Burt, Simsbury, for a copy of the complaint filed with the CHRO. When reached, Sconzo had no comment on the case, but said that he has been hired by the town to advise their legal proceedings in the matter. In filing with the CHRO, the complaint was also auto-

matically filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. “It’s out of my hands now,” Axelrod said. “It’s now been filed with an administrative body. It’s been kicked to the next level.” Axelrod added that he needed to be “very delicate” with his words at the moment as the proceedings mature, but said, “I have been contacted by another attorney and have had preliminary talks whether the mat-

no factual document of this or written warning.” “If someone is not doing their job, then why promise them another position?” Notz said, adding that Gomez has been notified that if she does not acquire another town job by July 1, she will be terminated. When reached for comment, McCarty said that Gomez was not achieving certain expectations for which she was hired, and that the first selectman had made Gomez aware of the issue on multiple occasions. “I told her in January that a big qualification for her job had to do with writing and that she wasn’t performing that duty,” McCarty said. “It was a long meeting.” McCarty added that even after the January warning, Gomez still did not fulfill her job expectations. “In May I had another long discussion with her about whether or not she was doing the major job that I needed her to do,” McCarty said. The writing responsibilities expected of Gomez, McCarty said, involved a weekly press release detailing the political movements in town, including outlining the various town boards and major policies. “It didn’t work out,” McCarty said of Gomez’s press release duties. “And I brought this up with her several times.” Gomez and Axelrod’s office are further alleging that since the letter of intent arrived in the First Selectman’s office and was made public, Gomez has become the recipient of retaliation in Town Hall. “I am absolutely being retaliated against,” Gomez said when reached for comment. “All you would have to do is come to town hall and you would see the proof there. If you knew me, you’d know that my demeanor has changed.” Notz said that Gomez had recently been relocated from her First Selectman’s office desk to a workplace in the library. “She has no phone, no computer, and just sits

there,” Notz said. “She just assists various town people with town projects.” “She is doing special work in the library for me,” McCarty said of Gomez’s move. “She is still working for me.” Currently, McCarty said, Gomez is working on a project regarding the town’s senior center and is writing a press release on the subject. “We’ll see how that goes,” McCarty said in respect to the press release. As of June 10, Town Hall had not yet received an official complaint from the Con-

New York Times, Reader’s Digest, Worth, and Rolling Stone. O’Brien’s recent portrait of Obama-backed Supreme Court Judge nominee Sonia Sotomayor made the June 8 cover of Time Magazine. “I have been very fortunate to win many awards for my work over the years,” O’Brien said, “but it’s not until you win one in your own town do you truly get feedback. It makes you realize that if you go home again, it does matter. It’s a good lesson.” The high school’s National Art Honor Society is comprised of over a dozen students, who gain entrance through accomplishment in art and academics, as well as the desire for charity. Society advisor and NHHS art teacher Diana Blythe welcomed O’Brien into the organization, fitting as she had helped foster his love and work ethic for art when he was her teenage pupil. “She was a new teacher with tough requirements and expectations,” O’Brien said of Blythe, adding “She raised the level of the whole class she raised my level.” O’Brien’s early interest in art began with teacher Ann Capetta in Montowese Elementary, he said, but his artistic inspirations went dormant until Blythe pushed him beyond his comfort zone. “I came around, realized my calling, and did very well,” O’Brien said of Blythe’s influence. “I’m thrilled and honored, but I’m turning this around to you,” O’Brien added as he faced his high school art teacher, “because you meant a lot to me.” Blythe had reconnected with O’Brien in 1999 after she noticed a portrait he had done in Time Magazine of John F. Kennedy Jr. shortly after the death of the 35th president’s son. “For Tim it goes beyond the resume,” she said of O’Brien. “As a young man he faced heartbreak like the rest of us, but he always made good choices. Throughout his career, Tim has been responsible for many acts of kind-

It has been a joy to watch him become the artist he is, but the man he has become makes me proud.” Also honored was New Haven Register reporter and cancer survivor DeMatteo, who has covered North Haven for the Register since 1990. “Her words are art,” principal Russell Dallai said of DeMatteo. “She is a role model, a person of integrity, and an integral part of the community.”

Specifically, DeMatteo is a role model to those stricken with personal misfortune. DeMatteo was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008, and took it as an opportunity to openly share through a blog her struggles and triumphs as to assuage others engaged in similar hardships. “She turned it into a platform for public information,” Dallai said of DeMatteo’s battle against cancer. “And she welcomes the chance to speak whenever asked.” “It’s an honor to be sharing the stage with Ann,” O’Brien said to DeMatteo. “Art is about me giving up

Art Continued from page 6 She added that she had a wonderful time covering O’Brien when he returned to North Haven several months ago to teach a class for Blythe’s students. He had come back to his high school to paint a portrait from the beginning to the end for North Haven art students. “They wanted to pour water on the floor so he could walk on it,” Blythe said of her students being in awe of O’Brien’s national success. “The kids were completely inspired.” To afford his services, Blythe had secured a grant from Yale University – however, O’Brien refused the grant money upon his arrival. “He wanted it to go to the art society,” Blythe said. True to her earlier description of his anonymous generosity, O’Brien never mentioned that he turned down the school’s grant at any point during the proceedings. The grant money would ultimately be put towards the Robert E. DeMayo baseball field sculpture. “It was cool to come back to my teacher’s classroom,” O’Brien said of painting for Blythe’s classes. “I could tell they were riveted. I stood up before them for two, two and a half hours. It was pretty cool.” O’Brien also critiqued portraits produced by students and answered questions. Following in the footsteps of those who influenced him, O’Brien teaches art classes

Ann DeMatteo himself at The University of the Arts in Pennsylvania. He laughed about an e-mail from Blythe that spoke of needing to possess a “tireless” devotion to one’s students. “Tireless?” O’Brien joked, “I’m exhausted.” “I love teaching,” O’Brien continued. “When you do it, you have talented stars. But what I love are the ones who are not stars, the ones who being there means something to them. Those types went to Mrs. Blythe. I always focus on the kids who no one has focused on yet.” O’Brien also joked that he felt dated upon this return See Art, page 21

something for myself – I don’t give up myself doing my craft. What you do is really amazing.” DeMatteo used the forum to speak of community service, a function pertinent to both herself and the organization of which she was now a member. The Art Honor Society has financially supported a sickened high school teacher and a local family that lost both a father and a son to leukemia. The society also donates to homeless shelters, food pantries, Cookies for a Cure, and Clintonville Manor, and also hands out healing shawls to cancer victims. “I thought I’d talk about community service as it is very near and dear to my heart,” DeMatteo said. “The fact that an art society also has a commitment to service – that’s very impressive.” During the proceedings, the society gifted a shawl to DeMatteo and a North Haven student whose mother was battling cancer. Additionally, the society volunteered many hours sculpting the statue that now adorns the recently dedicated Robert E. DeMayo baseball field. “I’m impressed with the amount of service the honor society does,” DeMatteo said. “I never connected art with service.” “As a journalist and the editor of a publication, I feel like I am still serving my community, and that’s me,” added DeMatteo, a lifelong member and past national president of Omega Phi Alpha national service sorority. The honor society also gave a gift basket and an apron to DeMatteo, who was flattered by the honor of the induction. “I believe in serving North Haven as a reporter,” she said. “I try to cover as many stories as I possibly can – I try not to be the story.” “It was rewarding to be on the same program as Tim O’Brien,” DeMatteo said. “He is a fabulous artist and a credit to the high school, Diane Blythe, and Ann Capetta.”

Photographer’s scenes of Venice hang in local eatery By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

North Haven resident and local photographer Dan Hott is currently showcasing a small display of his work inside The Breakfast Nook at 448 Washington Ave. One wall of the early morning eatery is lined with black and white images of Venice, Italy. The island is a common focus for Hott, who teaches photography at Rocky Hill High School in addition to doing freelance work, and a house photographer gig at the Arena at Harbor Yard. “I love Italy in general,” Hott said, “but something about Venice draws me back every time.” The Venice series represents over a decade of effort from the photographer, as

Hott first began chronicling the sinking city in 1994 while on his honeymoon. Since then, he has revisited the capital of the former Venetian Republic every several years, taking the opportunity to photograph one the world’s most attractive cities. Hott’s work portrays solitary scenes of the city bereft of its common glut of tourism. “The photographs are tourist free,” he said. “I feel like it was 200 years ago. There’s a time displacement – I see beyond the noise, tourists, and garbage piling up, to the eternal beauty of Venice.” Besides Venice’s intrinsic aesthetic qualities, Hott said that its earmark canal roadway naturally lends itself to appealing photography. “There are unique light op-

portunities because it’s built on water,” Hott said. “There’s a lot going on with the light and reflections.” While several of Hott’s pieces work with contrast built from the water and light, others focus on Venice’s ubiquitous architecture, including the city’s emblematic lion statures, as well as Piazza San Marco and its flocks of pigeons. Hott had once considered moving to Venice and setting up a photography shop, he said, as he determined the city to contain few stores catering to the need. Hott went as far as to rent an apartment in Venice for several weeks to research the move. However, Hott also determined it difficult to attain work without a dual-citizenship, and also has since welcomed two school-aged children into his

family. Still, Hott is drawn to Venice as a prolonged subject in his work. “It’s sinking. It’s carless,” he said of the island. “It has so many qualities unlike typical cities.” The black and white medium utilized in the series is common of Hott’s work up to three years ago, he said. The second grouping of Hott’s photographs, a newer project also hanging in The Breakfast Nook, represents a move to color. The pictures, unsigned and hanging opposite Venice, may be difficult to deduce at first, but upon explanation, they become clear - they are close ups of concrete walls beneath highway overpasses. These underpasses are a common canvas for graffiti, and Hott has begun to record the public’s efforts to repress such spray painted scrawling. “I’ve been working on it for one year,” Hott said. “What initially attracted me is not

the graffiti, but the constant effort to cover up graffiti, leading to swatches of covering and paint.” The concrete walls portrayed can be found in the North Haven and Hamden area, Hott said. In addition to the anti-vandalism undertakings, Hott is also interested in the underpasses’ natural appearance. “The combination of mold and rusted, metal drippings stands out almost like paintings,” he said. The project is new and Hott is still experimenting with ways of displaying the images. Although The Breakfast Nook’s handful of underpass samplings are conventionally framed and matted, Hott has tried placing the photographs on slabs of metal as well as rolls of canvas. Hott said that the photographs should be up through the end of July, and that all individual pieces are also for sale, with prices ranging from $225 to $300. Hott’s photograph collections are but one of many displayed within The Breakfast Nook, as owner Nolan Kowaleski invites local artists to both feature and market their work inside his shop. “I enjoy it,” Kowaleski said of the artwork. “I try to get people to expose their art - get it out there and seen.” Kowaleski added that he has worked in conjunction with North Haven High School in the past to spotlight

The owner has also welcomed poets to come in and read their material. “Anywhere to expose art is great,” Kowaleski said. “The customers respond to it 100 percent.” Kowaleski met Hott through a relative of the photographer, and continues to feature the teacher’s pieces. With the school’s summer break approaching, Hott said that he plans to further pursue the underpass project, especially since the current series was taken in the winter months. “It was cold, dark, and dreary,” Hott said of the conditions under which he snapped the underpasses. “I would like to revisit the

walls now.” Hott is also in the early developmental stages of an undertaking based on the celestial paintings atop many Italian churches. The North Haven resident plans on photoshopping together images of clouds and people so that they mirror scenes of angels in heaven, such as those among the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling. Hott added that local, aspiring photographers may want to check out the New Haven Photographic Arts Collective. “They are extremely supportive of photographers at all levels,” he said of the PAC.

The Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut is offering a free service to help seniors and individuals with disabilities make the switch to Digital Television (that is taking place on June 12) simple and successful. Although there has been a lot of publicity concerning the switch to digital, there has been a lack of free, hands on personal assistance to help people make the change, until now. Here is a list of what the

Agency on Aging can assist you with: Assess the need for a converter box. This can be done over the phone or in person. Assist in obtaining a $40 coupon off the price of the converter box (Please note there is a maximum of two coupons per household). Arrange for pick-up and delivery of the converter box. Arrange for a trained volunteer to visit the residence and install the converter

box. Train the user how to properly utilize the new technology. Follow up with any problems that may occur.

North Haven Rotary Foundation supports annual Quinnipiac scholarship

James Giulietti, chairman of the North Haven Rotary Foundation, recently presented a $2,000 check for the local foundation’s annual student scholarship to Dr. Edward R. O’Connor, 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 and reception at the university. 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. “The North Haven Rotary Foundation’s ongoing support of our students is a clear indication of their commitment to help us with our mission of training first-rate clinicians and for this we remain very grateful,” O’Connor said. O’Connor and Neuhauser provided Giulietti and fellow Rotarian, David Marchesseault, with a tour of Quinnipiac’s physical therapy, occupational therapy, and nursing simulation laboratories which are presently located on the university’s Mount Carmel campus in Hamden. The laboratories were specifically designed to enhance the learning experience of the students as they actively engage in critical thinking and patient-care skills. The dean also shared Quinnipiac University’s plan to move the graduate and professional programs to the new North Haven campus. The university acquired the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield home offices on Bassett Road from WellPoint, Inc. in the fall of 2007. Quinnipiac is currently renovating a 150,000 square foot building on the 104-acre campus to accommodate the School of Health Sciences graduate programs, which will move to the site this fall. “The new facility will be a state-of the-art teaching facility that will significantly enhance our health science students’ learning experience,” O’Connor said. Pictured are North Haven Rotary Foundation chair James Giulietti presenting a $2,000 check to Quinnipiac Unniversity’s Dr. Edward R. O’Connor, Dean of the School of Health Sciences.

I would like to thank the more than 3,000 voters who cast ballots in the referendum last month. A thousand more North Haveners voted compared with last year’s budget turnout, and you voted overwhelmingly to approve all three measures. McCarty The budget passed easily: 64 percent to 36 percent. I am proud of the work that went into drawing up a budget that requires no tax increase—the first time in over a decade—while maintaining town services and educational programs. We also increased the fund balance and increased the benefit to low-income seniors—all this in spite of the global economic turmoil. Everyone involved in the budgeting process, from administrators to elected officials to voters, deserves a nod for a job well done. Voters also approved accepting federal money to help implement a paramedic program. This program will build on steps my adminis-

tration has already taken to start the process of training firefighters to become certified paramedics. This will be a service that will save lives. Voters overwhelmingly approved the adoption of our new code of ethics. I would like to thank the Ethics Review Committee, town attorney John Parese, and Rob Wechsler for the countless hours working on this muchneeded update of our ethics code. I have begun the process necessary to implement our new ethics code, which includes soliciting citizens who would be interested in serving on the new Board of Ethics. If you are so interested, please contact my office. The lopsided vote in favor of these three referendum issues gives me confidence that the people of North Haven approve of my administration’s approach to running the town: streamlining government, bringing in new revenue, and giving the people the best value for their tax dollars. Thank you for your support. Janet McCarty is the First Selectman of North Haven. Email her at firstselectman@town.northhaven.ct.us.

Freda’s Focus: The importance of business relationships in a community

In these difficult economic times, it certainly is easy to have a negative view of things as it relates to w h e r e things are now and where they might be Freda headed for the future. One of the more difficult challenges that we are faced with is turning

that negativism into a positive approach. Here in North Haven, I recently had the opportunity to meet with over 40 business people in town to discuss many of the problems and opportunities that we are faced with. Businesses are critically important to us here from the standpoint of providing jobs, keeping the economy moving along in good and bad times, and paying taxes to us here in North Haven. A successful portfolio of busi-

nesses will generally help keep the tax burden down for the citizens in any municipality. I enjoyed my meeting with the business community and it is something that I am very comfortable with because of my corporate experience. Reaching out to businesses is something that I plan on continuing to do on various levels. I believe that in tough times, municipal leaders must demonstrate a positive and proactive ap-

proach in an effort to seek opportunities. These opportunities tend to come about as a result of productive discussions and putting parties together to discuss expansion, collaboration or redevelopment of dilapidated buildings and infrastructure. One of the many goals that I have for North Haven is to grow our top line revenue with a relentless focus on smart economic growth. This growth will come, in

part, through the nurturing and development of solid relationships with our business community and staying close to them so that they know that the leadership of their town is interested in listening to their concerns. As a result of my meeting with many businesses in town, I will continue to meet with other businesses. In the future, I want to establish a solid relationship with our

Letters to the Editor Just the facts To the editor: Fact 1: It is reported in a New Haven publication that the North Haven Democratic town chairman, Peter Criscuolo earned $325,547 last year as a state marshal and that more than $87,000 of his business came from the law firm of Porto , Parese, Parrett & Colwell. Fact 2: The law firm of Porto, Parese, Parrett & Colwell is the North Haven Democratic administration’s appointed town attorney, earning hundreds of thousands of dollars. Fact 3: The law firm of Porto, Parese, Parrett & Colwell (attorneys and family members) contributed about $13,000 to the McCarty reelection campaign in 2009. Is this a case of one hand washes the other and then the other and then the other? Draw your own conclusions. I’ve drawn mine. Deborah Ward-O’Brien North Haven

What about the volunteers? To the editor: In the referendum and paramedic article of May 22, Scott Martus stated there are 28 firefighters in North Haven. Martus is only 80 firefighters short. There are 108 firefighters in North Haven. When Martus was a volunteer, he considered himself to be a good firefighter. Now that Martus gets a paycheck, volunteer firefighters do not exist. Martus, and anyone else who feels that way, could not be more wrong. Volunteer firefighters are

top grand list members and then set up regular meetings with our other businesses in town to see where we can create additional opportunities for growth. I am very positive, excited and optimistic about the future here in North Haven. Part of the many goals and objectives that I have for our

required to be certified and maintain a level of proficiency. Over 87 percent of the fire departments in this country are volunteer departments. Most of these fire departments provide emergency medical services, including paramedic services, saving taxpayers a considerable amount of money. There are volunteer fire departments with no career firefighters who respond to more emergency calls than North Haven does. Martus also stated that he and one other North Haven firefighter are paramedics. The truth is there are four career firefighters who are already paramedics, there are two career firefighters in paramedic class, and there are four volunteer firefighters who are paramedics. North Haven will have a total of 10 firefighter/paramedics when the two career firefighters finish their class. This total is before we hire four more career firefighter/paramedics from the grant. Unfortunately, the four volunteer firefighter/paramedics are not allowed to respond to medical calls. This is a good resource we do not use. Martus states the paramedic program will cost $7 a year for the first five years. I would like to see the actual math on this instead of pulling numbers out of the air. Walter Munzner North Haven

PTA, I would like to express my thanks to Bob Chancio of Sports Plus on Washington Avenue. We ordered over 160 T-shirts and sweatshirts for our annual school spirit fundraiser. Our Ridge Road families were so pleased with their orders. Thank you for helping us make this a success. I am happy to support such a great local business and plan to use Sports Plus next year.

No more gravy train

To the editor: On behalf of the Ridge Road Elementary School

To the editor: We have seen a number of towns and cities request concessions or give backs by municipal employees and state workers. We have read about corporations asking workers to tighten their belts. The requests are usually done with very soft threats of layoffs, discontinuing programs and cutting services. The local elected officials and those who serve us in Washington have to start taking responsibility for this mess and start giving back some of their perks and stop providing bailouts to all corporations who helped them get elected. The political gravy train for the politicians has got to stop. Making a big deal about taking furlough days is not the answer when you are expecting the working class constituents to continuously give up providing for their families’ healthcare, food on the table, gas in the car to get to work. Term limits must be part

town are designed to help each of you benefit from an increased tax revenue standpoint generated from economic growth. The more successful that we can be in developing, expanding and attracting new businesses, the more successful we can be in minimizing the tax burden for each of you. There is a lot to accomplish in many different areas here in North Haven, but as I view the challenges ahead I have a tremendous level of

optimism and an inexhaustible level of energy that will never be drained in an effort to help us be poised for the future. A future that I envision will also include North Haven once again being back in the top 100 places to live in the United States after a two year absence. Michael J. Freda is the minority member of the Board of Selectmen. E-mail him at michael.freda@crossmark.com.

Many thanks

of solving the problem so that the elected officials do not get confused as to who they are serving, their constituents or special interest groups. Gail Stingo North Haven

Appalled by vandalism To the editor: This past Saturday I had an opportunity to accompany some high school students who were doing community service on a trail hike at Peter’s Rock. As we walked along the orange trail we were appalled to see signs of vandalism on the bridge over the stream that had been constructed by a Boy Scout for his Eagle Scout project. The steps of the bridge appeared to be scorched by fire and a side rail had been removed. The orange trail markings in the area had also been painted over with red paint. We also noted as we walked that there were several young trees that had been cut down or damaged and not by “Mother Nature”. This is most disturbing to me as a resident of the town and someone who has a great fondness for Peter’s Rock. And this is not the first time that park rules have been ignored and other vandalism found, including graffiti on the other bridges. We continue to find evidence of trail destruction by ATV activity and large pieces of trash littering the trails. Saturday

the students brought out four old propane tanks and a lawn mower frame, also reporting there was other debris too large for them to handle. I will be asking the police to take notice of this as well as parents whose children frequent the park trails unsupervised. And please dispose of your trash in the appropriate places—not at Peter’s Rock! Audrey McClure North Haven

Differences of opinion

To the editor: Let me say one thing up front. I like Mike Freda and think he is a real asset to North Haven in his role as third selectman. However, we do have several differences of opinion, on important matters, which impact our taxes. Freda spoke against the budget, claimed that we could not collect some taxes owed to us and he wanted to build up the surplus. The only way he could accomplish these goals would be to raise taxes. Fortunately, the public saw through his smoke screen and voted overwhelmingly to approve the budget. Let me explain our main point of contention. Having a larger surplus, which is what Freda and others wants, hurts us in two ways. We would have to raise taxes to fund that surplus and any-

Bartlett Continued from page 1

learning to skate, to national and world level athletes ranging in age from nine to 56 years old. “I like teaching alongside Chris and enjoy the process of passing on what we know about skating and communicating the beauty and techniques of the sport to others,” said Peter Kozodoy, general manager of Skaters Landing and skating coach. “Chris and I co-coach our students every weekday afternoon in Cromwell and it is rewarding.” The youngest of five siblings, with three sisters and one brother, Bartlett found the rink to be a very special place not only to skate, which he did diligently by participating in five public sessions a week, but also where he made many friends. When he was 16, Bartlett left North Haven and went to Colorado where he finished school. Shortly after graduation, he skated for Disney on Ice for four years and toured four continents. At age 26, he felt he had completed his skating career, so he returned to Connecticut and enrolled in college and real estate school. “During this time, I joined the Shoreline Figure skating Club in East Haven and I found myself teaching iceskating lessons to the president’s daughter,” said Bartlett. “Then I went from one student to 12 students and eventually ran an entire ice-skating school.” Then Bartlett joined the Skating Club of Hartford as the skating director and served on several volunteer boards and remained in Hart-

ford for four years. In 1993, he began working on sharpening skates in his parents’ basement in North Haven. In 1998, he opened his own business – Skaters Landing at 84 Washington Ave. – modeled after the one-stop shop he learned from in his days in Colorado. With the success of his first business, he opened one in Boston in 2001, another in Greenwich in 2005, and another in West Hartford in 2007. “North Haven has provided a base for me personally and professionally in a familiar territory that has easy town access for all my customers,” Bartlett said. “North Haven is the heart beat and pulse of my business and the other store locations are important too.” With all his hard work and dedication to figure skating and the business world, it is no surprise why Bartlett was named the recipient of this year’s award. Bartlett was

honored in May at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. along with other entrepreneurs from various business backgrounds. He was also honored at a breakfast award presentation on Tuesday, June 9, at the Hawthorne Inn in Berlin, Conn. His family, friends, co-workers, employees, and students are very pleased Bartlett is being honored. “I feel so proud of Christopher because he started this business on a shoestring in our basement at home,” said his mother Fran Bartlett. “He is a very dedicated and hard-working individual who puts his whole heart and soul into whatever he sets his mind to and achieves.” “Chris is well deserved of this award. I have known him since 1973 when I moved to North Haven and we lived in the same neighborhood,” said Linda Chicoine, general manager for Rink Manage-

ment Solutions, and a close friend. “He is ambitious and always has a concern for other people. My daughter is one of his figure skating students.” Bartlett has seen changes in figure skating through the years. It has gone from the evolution of traditional figure skating to all free style skating. He can still recall the days when he practiced for many hours at a time with little or no interference from outsiders. His future plans include getting involved in television and media productions, participating in speaking engagements, assisting upcoming entrepreneurs, and continuing to co-teach upcoming skaters with Peter Kozodoy. “It’s nice to finally see someone like Chris, who is committed to figure skating, be recognized for his outstanding performance in the field,” Kozodoy said. Bartlett believes the whole

experience has been a great journey. He sees himself as an entrepreneurial pioneer who is not afraid of failing and taking on new challenges. He attributes skating as shaping who he is today and giving him the tools to be a confident businessman. “I love the challenge and the unknown because they give growth and help to establish new relationships. It’s important to test the waters and to fulfill a purpose and leave your own mark on whatever you set out to accomplish,” Bartlett said. “I am truly happy, surprised, and honored to be recognized with this award, but most of all it’s been my pleasure to share skating and my experience in skating with the world.” For more information on Skaters Landing visit the Web site www. skaterslanding.com, e-mail Bartlett at chris@skaterslanding.com, or call (203) 234-3923.

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, June 12, 2009

Letters Continued from page 15

thing more than a 5 percent surplus is used against the taxpayers of North Haven in union arbitration hearings. That alone, probably cost us millions over the last 10 years. I have a lot of respect for Dean Volain, who is the Board of Finance chairman. He recently explained, in great detail, why North Haven’s projected surplus is right where it should be. For years, the previous administrations underestimated revenue and overestimated expenses to build up a surplus, which was then used as a slush fund. A surplus, in excess of 5 percent, represents an extra tax burden to North Haven. We heard Freda ask us to build up the surplus now, in case something happens over the next few

years. Doesn’t he realize that many people in North Haven are hurting economically? Maybe Third Selectman Freda would have us stash the extra money, from his excessive surplus proposal, in the old Knights of Columbus building. Unfortunately, Kopetz and company purchased that building with our hard-earned tax dollars and then tore it down. Sewer charges should not be a budgeted item. They are like a utility and the fees should be enough to support the facility. Freda claims those with sewers will get a tax increase. Let’s see what happens. Freda is wrong about Janet McCarty’s role in the CRAA negotiations, which resulted in a multi-million dollar benefit to North Haven. Freda referenced information from the meeting minutes. Apparently, he does not realize that most of the negotiations were held in executive sessions.

Janet McCarty was indeed very instrumental in working with the other towns, to extract the best possible solution for us. Jim Leahy North Haven

Basic needs in town To the editor: This letter is about basic needs here in town. By basic needs, I mean our roads, curbing and sidewalks need attention. One issue I am currently fighting for is the need for good curbing and good sidewalks. Bad curbing creates a huge maintenance issue for everyone. Besides, home values decrease as a result of bad curbing/no curbing in place. There are places in town where there are no sidewalks. As a rule, complete stretches of sidewalk need to be in place within one mile of a school, church or center of town. The Town

1116098

of North Haven has failed to address these issues and it is disgraceful. These are all basic needs. I intend to keep the heat on these issues. It’s in the town’s best interest to follow through on the ongoing curbing issue problem along Maple Avenue, a state road. What the State Department of Transportation doesn’t do, the North Haven Public Works must do, such as keeping the streets clean, as well as around storm drains. This means taxpayer dollars are being wasted paying for man hours and running equipment, just to assure proper drainage in our streets. This is a task they will be forced to do, if the curbing issue is not resolved. So many taxpayer dollars have been wasted over the years. This needs to stop. Maple Avenue is not the only problem area in town with a curbing problem. Therefore I speak on behalf of all North Haven residents and support their needs to have their curbing repaired as well. Some roads are town roads and some are state roads. Maple Avenue is a state road that has become a town problem, since it is draining the town’s budget. Tons of money is available for Goliath-size projects that will take years to complete, but the basic needs in town get a “patch job.” When curbing cracks, it creates an edge for snowplows to get caught on and the curbing gets ripped out. The entire stretch of Maple Avenue needs all new curbing in place. This curbing has exceeded its lifespan and needs to be replaced — there’s no other alternative — it’s unrepairable — chunks are ready to be ripped out next winter. We as taxpayers are overtaxed. To add to the burden of plummeting home values, the need for good curbing and sidewalks brings our property values even lower. The town and state is negligent in providing basic needs for the residents. I am outraged with projects on the town’s “priority list.” It seems they focus on expanding our retail district on Universal Drive. It is a fact, that the retail sector does not generate high pay-

ing jobs. It is a fact that the retail sector does not generate a high level of tax revenue to the town. It is a fact that it demands a high level of police and fire department activity. The bottom line is, it is more of a burden, than an asset for the town. We are in a dire economy and people are losing their jobs — they don’t have money to shop. People must have jobs to shop here. Why isn’t there an ambitious effort to bring manufacturing jobs into North Haven? Give people a good job, then they will have money to shop. Our town officials are more concerned with a project on Valley Service Road than the basic needs here in town. We are talking tons of money to complete such a project that will take years to complete — that takes away basic needs and privileges from North Haven taxpayers. It’s time town officials get their priorities straight. Maybe it would be wise for taxpayers to ask for a disclosure of town officials’ credit score, liens, debt or any other personal financial information. I say, if they cannot manage their own finances, how can they manage ours — meaning managing taxpayer dollars and balancing the budget. Their own house needs to be in order first before they can manage town hall. Some might say that this is personal information that needs to be kept confidential. In my opinion, we as taxpayers voted you into office to serve us. We are paying you to work for us. We are your employer. Your personal financial status determines if you are competent to serve us. We have a right to know, since your financial abilities are brought from your home into the workplace every day. Morris Pedersen North Haven

Next, the 10 student inductees were called to the forefront and handed roses, pins, and certificates to symbolize their induction. The inductees were Erika Back, Martina Benassi, Tricia Currie, Kaitlin Fung, Jason Kim, Christa Lorusso, Nick Melillo, Marc Murano, Melissa Sardilli, and Yi Hong Zheng. Next, the outgoing senior members were given special tassels for their graduation ceremony. Finally, before the honorees were announced, honor society president Reggie Li was awarded the Outstanding Senior Artist Scholarship for his efforts in both art and community service. “I’ve known him for four years and I’m going to miss him,” Blythe said of Li, who helped construct the Robert E. DeMayo baseball field sculpture. Although the day’s main attraction was unquestionably the adult honorary inductees, Blythe did not lose focus of the altruistic and talented students who continually make the success of the honor society possible. “I’d like to thank our students, whose diversified responsibilities support various humanitarian efforts,” Blythe said.

home as the library he would frequent as a child in North Haven had since been turned into an equipment building for the football field. “It’s a little embarrassing,” he said. Both O’Brien and DeMatteo are professionals who have found prolonged success in their fields, and offered advice for students aspiring to similar career paths. “The economy has suffered a lot in the past several months,” O’Brien said. “One thing America does better than anyone is entertainment – movies, television, art – it is a very viable avenue. Painting, music, writing – our number one export is entertainment.” “Read a lot, study hard, and get involved with the newer technologies part of journalism,” DeMatteo said, alluding to newspapers’ struggle to adapt to the digital age. “Explore how your own talents can be adapted into the new technologies.” The event began as the North Haven orchestra strummed classical tunes while the audience found their seats. The honor society’s focuses were explained

prestigious venues during the past year across Ireland, the UK, mainland Europe and the U.S. There is something for everyone at the festival. Experience a mix of the best traditional and contemporary Irish music, set dancing, cultural exhibits, Irish shopping village, great food, a 5K-road race to benefit ALS, cultural and agricultural displays, children’s activities, rides, and an Irish shopping and craft village. There will be Gaelic football and hurling matches with teams of all ages from New Haven, Boston, and Philadelphia all weekend long. Members of the Celtic Learning Project, dressed in 13th century Celtic garb, will be on hand to tell tales of Celtic lore. Expect plenty of good food, including the finest of Irish baked goods. Breakfast sandwiches consisting of Irish bacon, egg, and cheese will be available both mornings. The Tea House features tea, scones, and soda bread.

In addition, there will be an international flavor to the festival with Italian and Thai favorites, as well as summer festival favorites: hot dogs, burgers, chicken, kettle corn, and ice cream.

Participants must be between the ages of 30 and 65, must never have been diagnosed with cancer, and must be willing to make a longterm commitment to the study, which simply means filling out follow-up surveys at their home periodically. Individuals will be asked to complete a brief written survey, provide a waist measurement, and give a small blood sample at the Relay enrollment site, in addition to completing a baseline survey at their home. Researchers will use the data from CPS-3 to build on evidence from a series of American Cancer Society studies that began in the 1950s. Those studies confirmed the link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer, showed that obesity increases the risk of several cancers, and linked aspirin use to a lower death rate from colon cancer. The current study, CPS-II, began in 1982 and is still ongoing, but changes in lifestyle and in the understanding of cancer in the more than two decades since its launch make it important to begin a new cohort.

Continued from page 5 ter can be resolved – whether it would be realistic to do so.” Once McCarty’s office receives the letter, she will have up to 30 days to respond, CHRO principal attorney Charlie Krich said, but could request an additional 15 days if necessary. Investigators from the CHRO Waterbury branch – the closest office - will then investigate both Gomez’s complaints and McCarty’s response to determine whether the case warrants a merit assessment review, Krich said. During this time, all documents will be shared

with the parties directly involved with the case, and additional information can be requested by the CHRO from either party. Any applicable documents will not be made public, Krich added, as per Connecticut Supreme Court precedent. Should it be found justifiable, the complaint would incur another round of investigations from the CHRO, Krich said, in the form of an informal trial. The complaint’s parties would be summoned to the CHRO Waterbury offices and asked to testify under oath, Krich said, adding that if investigators still believed the complaint to be warranted, the case would proceed to the

Hartford CHRO’s court. Should a CHRO judge in Hartford rule that a civil rights violation had indeed occurred, the complaining party would be either be monetarily compensated to cover actual economic loss in terms of lost employment, Krich said, or the court would order that the complaining party to be placed next in line for the position in question. Should a case be dismissed by the CHRO at any point during the three stages, the complaining party retains the right to appeal to general Connecticut Superior Court. Gomez also has the ability to release the CHRO from jurisdiction at

any time and instead take the case directly to general court. Additionally, Gomez can drop the complaint at any time should she repeal her accusations, or if an outside settlement is reached. Several citizens in attendance at last week’s Board of Selectman meeting asked the status of the Gomez complaint. “If the town receives the thing filed, we will deal with it then,” Selectman Steve Fontana said in response.

On Saturday, May 2, the Town of North Haven’s Department of Community Services and Recreation held its 16th Annual Trout Fishing Derby at Sinoway Pond on Upper State Street. It rained throughout the early morning hours. Fortunately the rain ceased as the derby began. Despite the rain and chilly conditions this year’s derby had more than 200 children and their parents settled around the pond and waited for the 7:30 a.m. whistle to begin fishing. A trophy was awarded to each of the following: Sabrina Ferrara for catching the first fish, Nich DesRosiers for catching the largest fish (14 ½”), and Cody Mahon for catching the most fish (first to catch the state limit of five) and for catching a tagged fish. Each child who attended the derby received a goodie bag with fishing accessories. A casting contest was held throughout the morning and a rod and reel were given to the following winners: Skyler Hine, Ashton Ginnette-Blethen, Samantha Helwig, Erik Marro, Alyssa Estabrook, Cody Mahon, Aldana Rodrigeuz, and Michael Amato. Numerous raffle prizes were given away all morning through the generous donations of local merchants and organizations. As always, McDonald’s Restaurant of Washington Avenue donated coffee, juice and milk. Dunkin’ Donuts of Washington Avenue donated munchkins and coffee, Scotty’s Breakfast Connection donated hot dogs, and North Haven Dairy Queen supplied ice cream. Raffle prizes were solicited through the hard work of North Haven resident Tom Villano. Special thanks go to all for their support. In addition, we’d like to thank the following businesses for their generosity in making the fishing derby a success: Double J. Sound, J Roos, Antonio’s Sub Shop and Deli on Route 5, Barnick’s, Hollywood Video, Guilio’s Pizza, Southern Connecticut Tackle, North Haven Public Works Union, North Haven P.B.A. Special thanks goes to the North Haven Public Works employees.

Editor’s note: The North Haven Citizen will feature a column written by resident Paul Colella. Patriots and Scoundrels will tell the history of North Haven during the period between 1789 to 1850. Narrated by a fictional character – Charity Chastine – the column will tell the story of important historical figures and events of the town. Part VII As I opened my eyes and expected to see Grace, to my horror I saw a pillow come down upon my face. I struggled to breathe as the pillow was being pressed down on my face. I found myself in a state of panic and the breath of life was being snuffled out of me. Just as I was about to succumb to my death, Grace entered the room and interrupted this heinous act in progress. She began to scream in terror while hitting the assailant with a tray. “Oh my good gracious, there’s a demon from hell trying to harm my precious Charity,” screamed Grace. “Please, help us!” As Grace was yelling and hitting the intruder, the pillow was lifted from my face and I was desperately gasping for the breath of life that just seconds before was being snuffed out of me. The intruder pushed Grace out of the way and she fell upon my bed. She quickly turned her attention to me while the attacker ran out of the room. Meanwhile the people from downstairs in the dining hall heard Grace’s screams for help and began to come up the stairs. While the intruder was desperately trying to escape, he lost his balance and fell down the stairs. His body fell to the bottom of the first step and was motionless. Dr. Foote along with Jesse Andrews went over to examine the body. Dr. Foote pulled off a pillow casing that the attacker had concealing his face. He then checked for a pulse that was not there and sadly shook his head indicating that the person was dead. The fall caused the attacker to break his neck. Dr. Foote and Jesse glanced upon the dead man’s face and to everyone’s surprise it was

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, June 12, 2009

Patriots and Scoundrels Theodore Norton. On the floor next to Theodore’s body were several silver coins that must have fallen out of the pocket of his overcoat when he fell down the stairs. Dr. Foote came upstairs and gave me a quick examination. Grace brought me a cold glass of water while I tried to recover from this horrible experience. Everyone was kind and attentive to me especially Mrs. Andrews who kept inquiring about my well being. Jesse and two other men removed Theodore’s body from the tavern and placed it in the barn. During this time, David Cobb had arrived at the tavern and was shocked by what he was told. He couldn’t believe what Theodore tried to do to me. He ran up the stairs while tripping over his own feet and raced into my room. He nearly pushed Grace and Mrs. Andrews out of the way. David embraced me by wrapping his strong and muscular arms around me. His embrace made me feel safe and was well appreciated. “Thank God you are all right,” replied David. “You have been through a terrible ordeal. I can’t believe that Theodore Norton could perform such a wicked act upon you.” We were all shocked by what Theodore had tried to do to me and baffled by his motive. I only knew him as a customer at the tavern and our encounters were always pleasant. Dr. Foote instructed me to return to bed and Grace volunteered to stay and watch over me. I had wanted David to stay, but I knew that Grace would never allow it. David told me that he would see me in the morning. He went with Dr. Foote to tell Lydia Johnson, who was Theodore’s aunt and only living relative, what had happened. Grace told me that Theodore’s father was killed while fighting a battle in the Revolutionary War and his mother died two years later from yellow fever leaving him in the care of Lydia Johnson, his mother’s sister. I snuggled under the quilt and with Grace stroking my head gently, I

eventually fell asleep while holding on to the doll Patience had given me. The next day Grace and I, along with Mrs. Andrews, Jesse, and several townspeople, attended William Singleton’s funeral. The service was somber but lovely. Mrs. Singleton with a poker straight face was careful not to show any emotion, while Constance, who was being assisted by two servants, cried excessively for both her and her mother. After the service, Grace and I went up to Constance and she thanked us for attending. I did not tell her about my ordeal because I felt it wasn’t the appropriate place or time. Constance told Grace and me that her father was a wonderful man, but unfortunately he had gone into debt unbeknownst to her and her mother. In order to pay off the debt, Mrs. Singleton was selling Singleton Lodge and she and her mother were moving to Virginia where they would reside with Mrs. Singleton’s cousin, Jeffrey Wilmot, a close friend and neighbor of Thomas Jefferson. Mr. Wilmot owned a large and beautiful plantation with many slaves. Although Constance and her mother did not approve of slavery and disliked the heat and mosquitoes, they were at the mercy of their cousin’s generosity due to their precarious situation. Constance further explained that Singleton Lodge was to be purchased by a Frenchman named Monnerat. He and his wife were to take possession within a week. She told Grace and me that she would miss us and she promised that she would write often. After the funeral, we returned to the tavern. Grace and I were in the back room preparing the meal for the afternoon crowd. While we were busy at work, we talked about how odd it was that the Marquis and his family were not present at the funeral. Our conversation and task at hand were interrupted by a messenger who came with a letter for me. The letter was an invitation from Phoebe Kensington, a wealthy wid-

ow from Wallingford who wanted to invite me to tea at her home. I did not know her, but Grace explained that she was Charlotte Parker’s mother. “Mrs. Kensington is extending you this invitation as a thank you for saving the little boy’s life,” said Grace. “Whatever her intentions are, you must go and make the most of it.” With Grace poking and prodding me, I had no choice but to go. I put on my Sunday best, and I was driven to Kensington Hall in Mrs. Kensington’s personal carriage. Kensington Hall was a beautiful place and much larger in size than Singleton Lodge. From what I observed on my ride through Wallingford, this town seemed more affluent and populated than North Haven. I recalled a story that Jesse Andrews had told me of when George Washington during the Revolutionary War came through North Haven and went on to Wallingford to acquire gun powder and ammunition for the soldiers and stayed overnight at Kensington Hall. When I arrived, a maid showed me to the parlor where Mrs. Kensington was waiting for me. She was an elderly woman of propriety and elegance with a kind face. I felt like a beggar in appearance next to my gracious hostess. Mrs. Kensington extended her hand to me and said that it was a pleasure to make my acquaintance. She asked me to be seated and then rang the bell for tea. Even though we were strangers, she and I had a delightful conversation and she made me feel at ease. She expressed her gratitude and complimented me for my bravery the other day. “My daughter Charlotte, her husband, and I are in your debt for saving our precious boy Charles,” replied Mrs. Kensington. “He is the sole heir to the Kensington fortune and that makes him very special to us.” At that moment, Charlotte Parker and her nephew entered the room. Upon seeing me, Charles ran to me and embraced me with a jolly

smile. Mrs. Parker gave me a gracious greeting and expressed how delighted she was to see me. I engaged in pleasant talk with both women while Charles played with his toys in the corner. After some time had passed, Mrs. Kensington instructed her daughter to take me on a tour of their home. Charles stayed with Mrs. Kensington while Mrs. Parker, or Charlotte as she instructed me to call her, toured the beautiful mansion. After seeing several rooms, Charlotte took me into the conservatory room that I thought was the grandest room of all. A maid came to get Charlotte and told her that her assistance was needed in the kitchen. Charlotte told me to make myself at home and she would return momentarily. In her absence, I amused myself by admiring the elegant furniture and the magnificent portraits hanging on the walls. A few minutes later my train of thought was abruptly interrupted by the sound of a door slamming shut. When I turned around, to my surprise I saw Colonel Parker standing in the room. He walked towards me and as I tried to avoid him, he grabbed my arm and I could not break free. He looked right into my eyes and spoke with a cunning tone in his voice. “It is so good to see you again, my dear Charity. I must thank you for saving my nephew’s life, and for that I will always be in your debt,” replied the colonel. “There is no need to fear me. I mean you no harm and would like for us to become good friends.” Upon hearing those words, chills ran down my spine. I found myself unwillingly being befriended by a devious and dangerous scoundrel who was in debt to me for saving his nephew’s life, but also a killer, who for all that I knew had deadly intentions in store for me. To be continued…

Those who choose to enroll will complete a brief initial questionnaire and provide a waist measurement and a small blood sample. Participants will periodically be sent a follow-up questionnaire for the next 20 to 30 years. If you aren’t eligible to participate, you can still make a difference by telling everyone you know about Cancer Prevention Study-3.
