Students of the month

Musicians inspired to give back By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen Current and former North Haven High School musicians will perform at the Town Green on Tuesday, June 19, for a jazz concert to benefit the NHHS band department. “This is to give back to [NHHS band director] Ken Tedeschi,” said 2010 NHHS graduate and Hartt School of Music student Stephen Cusano, who organized the

event. “We’re raising money for whatever he wants to use it for – band trips, to buy new instruments for students, whatever he needs.” “Mr. T. has made a very big impact in my life,” Cusano added. “He conveys a very strong passion for music. He sends the messages, loud and clear, that he cares about music, and that he cares about the students.” As such, performers on

out this fiscal year with at least a balanced budget and probably in a surplus position,” Freda said. “It’s been the goal of this administration to maintain a fund balance at eight percent and to take any surplus dollars that are derived through generating efficiency throughout the course of the fiscal year, to take those efficiencies in terms of dollar savings and give those dollars back to the taxpayers for future capital expenses.” Freda also shared that the Yale-New Haven Hospital project is “rolling along very nicely,” which will include a cancer, inflammatory disSee Selectmen, page 22

At the June 7 Board of Selectmen meeting, town leaders welcomed new businesses, spoke of potential businesses yet to open, and approved various appointments to and resignations from municipal boards and commissions. One new business in North Haven will provide aid to the disabled. Former West Haven Mayor H. Richard Borer Jr. is now president of the new Easter Seals Disability Services and Goodwill, which just opened a location at 432 Washington Ave. “We have a fleet of vans that we keep here at the

North Haven facility that will go out and pick up residents. These are people with developmental disabilities, and other types of barriers to work,” explained Borer during the meeting. “We pick up individuals, bring them to the center in North Haven, and we would do job training and create employment opportunities.” “We are looking forward to being a good neighbor,” Borer added. First Selectman Michael Freda then shared some financial updates, reiterating that there would be no tax increase this year, with the mill rate remaining at 26.54 mills. “We are looking to close

By successfully applying for a $50,000 grant, the Montowese Elementary School PTA playground committee is one step closer to replacing the building’s sparse, outdated playgrounds. In recent years, several local elementary schools have rebuilt their playgrounds due to existing recreation sites being old, unsafe, insufficient and flood-prone. Montowese’s recess areas suffer from similar problems. “We’ve gotten comments from parents who said that when they went to school here as children, this was the same equipment that they had,” said Michelle O’Brien, playground committee member. “It’s time for an update.” A place for recess for third-through-fifth grade offers students few options, little more than an open field, jungle gym and a handful of swings.

Local business takes video games on the road By Stefania Ciarleglio Special to the Citizen While most people think of arcades as being on boardwalks or in malls, two North Haven businessmen have brought gaming on the road. Monster Mobile Arcade, a mobile entertainment company founded by Mark Allen and Tom Olajos, features fullsize arcade games on the go, built into the back of a huge trailer truck. Just a few years ago, Olajos and Allen stumbled upon

an article about mobile businesses that were doing well despite the recession. Having children of their own, the creators developed an idea that would later develop into a full-fledged business operation. “Mark and I thought, ‘how great would it be to bring the party to the person instead of the person to the party?’” said Olajos. “We both grew up with arcades and enjoy gaming. We thought it would be a more unique experience to have a full-size arcade at

your doorstep with all the lights and sounds surrounding you. That’s when Monster Mobile Arcade was born.” The mobile arcade caters to everything from birthday parties and corporate events, to engagement parties and weddings, providing an enclosed, climate-controlled arcade as an all-inone experience. “We have seen a new trend of businesses that are becoming mobile and lean,” Olajos said. “People today want services brought to them as opposed to going

without having to worry about cleaning up afterwards.” See Arcade, page 7

Friends donations

Take a stand for those in needs By Paul Colella Special to the Citizen

At times we all need a hand to hold onto or someone to stand up for us. Sometimes that helping hand or certain individ- Colella ual comes to our assistance when we least expect it and when we need it the most. This story is intended to teach a lesson and remind us that people do care, as represented in the actions of a nine-year-old little girl. In a third grade classroom, there is a nine-yearold boy sitting at his desk. All of a sudden, there is a puddle between his feet and the front of his pants is wet. He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly imagine how this has happened. It’s never happened before, and he knows that when the boys find out

he will never hear the end of it. When the girls find out, they’ll never speak to him again as long as he lives. The boy believes his heart is going to stop. He puts his head down and begins to pray silently. He is hoping for a miracle that his unfortunate accident will go unnoticed and he could escape from this embarrassing and awkward predicament. When he looks up from his prayer, he sees the teacher coming down the aisle with a look in her eyes that says he has been discovered. As the teacher is walking toward him, a classmate named Lizzie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled with water. Lizzie trips in front of the teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the boy’s lap. The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is saying to himself, “Thank you! Thank you!” Now, instead of being the object of ridicule, the boy is the object of sympathy. The teacher rushes him down-

stairs to the nurse’s office and gives him gym shorts to put on while his pants dry out. All the other children are on their hands and knees cleaning up around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful, but as life would have it, the ridicule that should have been his has been transferred to someone else — Lizzie. When Lizzie tries to help clean up the mess, her classmates tell her to get out of the way. Some give her a disdainful look while others say, “You have done enough damage. Go away!” Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting outside for the bus, the boy walks over to Lizzie and whispers, “You did that on purpose, didn’t you? Thank you!” Lizzie whispers back, “I wet my pants once too. I had wished someone dumped a fish bowl of water in my lap. And you are welcome.” Like Lizzie, may we see the opportunities that are al-

ways around us to do a good deed. And if we get the chance to lend a helping hand may we do it with kindness and understanding. Remember that just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car. Each and every one of us is going through our own difficult times, or have experienced hard times and heartache at one time or another, but we must keep the faith, have determination, and never be afraid to help someone in need. It will come back to you tenfold and when you least expect it. Life would be grand if we all had a “Lizzie” by our side. Paul Colella is a published author and North Haven resident. His novels “Patriots and Scoundrels: Charity’s First Adventure” and “The Undefeated” are available online at and and can be checked out from the North Haven public library.

The “Best Friends” Used Bookstore continues as a main source of revenue for the Friends of the Library to fund many programs, services, technology and events for the North Haven Memorial Library. The Friends of the Library is seeking donations of gently-used books, especially children’s book. However, textbooks, outdated reference materials, videos and damaged items cannot be accepted. All proceeds from the bookstore sales are reinvested in the library.

Interact Club has much to report

Alex Johnson and Felishia LaPointe, co-presidents of the North Haven High School Interact Club, recently provided the Rotary Club with a report of its activities for the 2011-2012 school year. The club’s major event for the year was the hosting of a “Holiday Carnival” for the children in the Department of Children and Family Foster and Adoption Care. Participants enjoyed an after-

dation, which raises money for children’s cancer research. They also ran car washes to raise money for various projects during the year. Upcoming events included assisting at the Special Olympics games June 9-10, as well as a closer for the year, a party at the home of their advisor, Ellie Mulligan. The major project being planned for next year is the restoration of the playground at Alex Johnson, left, and Felishia LaPointe, co-presidents of Blakeslee Park, including repairs to the the North Haven High School Interact Club, deliver their anconcession stand at nual report to the Rotary Club.

noon filled with food, song, games, and a visit from Santa who provided gifts for the children. This event received a special proclamation from the Governor, which the club will have framed and hung in an appropriate location at the school. Other activities included a recent “Senior Prom” at the center for the senior citizens in the town, which included music, dancing and prom attire. Periodic pasta parties continued this year at the center, and a toy drive to benefit the Ronald McDonald House in New Haven was held. Their carnation sale allowed them to donate $400 toward the St. Baldrick’s Foun-

Use exercise to help prevent injury and promote good posture. Regular exercise such as walking, swimming, or bicycling will help the body stay aerobically conditioned, while specific strengthening exercises will help the muscles surrounding the back to stay strong. These benefits of exercise promote good posture, which will, in turn, further help to condition muscles and prevent injury. There are also specific exercises that will help maintain good posture. In particular, a balance of trunk strength with back muscles about 30-percent stronger than abdominal muscles is essential to help support the upper body and maintain good posture.

CitizenOpinion Letters to the Editor

Added beauty

To the editor: Kudos, kudos, kudos, and thanks to the very hardworking, civic-oriented North Haven Garden Club. They spend an astronomical number of work hours planning, fundraising, planting, weeding and trimming many areas of the town for added beauty and our aesthetic pleasure. They tend to the gardens on the parking lot side of the town library, the center medians in several roads, adding large urns where the strips are asphalted, with American flags in the summer season, and red bows during the winter months. Additionally, they prepared the front of the Park and Recreation Department with red geraniums, for Memorial Day, window


boxes at the post office (such a sad-looking building without the colorful placement), and I’ll bet more places of which I am unaware. I was also unaware until today, of another garden club servicing our town. The Daytimers Garden Club beautify the reading garden at the town library, the “front” garden to south side of the main entrances and have enhanced the west side corners of the busy Clintonville Road/Washington Avenue intersection, at the Lafin Highway Connector. We, as a town, are beneficiaries of great gifts of talent and generosity of heart and labor. Thank you, dear women and men of the two very giving garden clubs, thank you. Patricia W. Gherlone North Haven

Dad, dandelions, DNA and destiny By Olivia L. Lawrence Most of us have a favorite tool and mine is a little device I call the pokey-weeder. It’s magnificently simple. A long handle like a shovel or rake might have with a twotined fork on the end. Stick it into the soil at a slight angle to the root system of a weed, a quarter turn and viola you’ve made the extraction. In my case, the target is always a dandelion. I’ve easily done 10,000 removals; that’s with no bending and no dirt on my hands. Love my pokey-weeder, the ultimate low-tech tool. Sometime, around my 2,000 or 3,000 dandelion kill, I was struck by my crazed, single-minded focus on this aspect of lawn care; the distain I feel for those who freely yield their property to the yellow plague. How I pull into the driveway and immediately spot a neon yellow offender, shamelessly waving about on the far side of the house. Rather than rushing

The North Haven Citizen is published every Friday by the Record-Journal Publishing Co. and is delivered by mail to all homes and businesses in North Haven. Olivia L.

Boath, Advertising Director Christopher Cullen, Advertising Sales Dundee Benson, Advertising Sales Marsha Pomponio, Office Assistant

to greet my family, including a lonely mutt, I throw my work bag down on the steps grab the pokey-weeder (always at the ready by the front door) and full-throttle head towards my target. And so I became aware of my dedication to this War on Dandelions because it was remarkably like the one my Dad waged 50 years ago when I was a kid. Only my Dad (now passed on) didn’t use an environmentallyfriendly pokey-weeder. He was strictly a weapons of mass destruction kind of guy. Why take chances and use a hand grenade when an atomic bomb would guarantee results. He had a spray bottle with a home-made label and he’d walk around the yard for hours dousing each offender with curses and the deadly elixir. Something he’d concocted in his workroom back in the barn where he liked to hang out by himself with a radio and beer cooler no one was allowed to touch. I’m guessing his secret dandelion juice definitely contained DDT, cigarette ashes and hootch. Or whatever combination of poisons is most likely to reduce a dandelion to toxic waste that will take nature eight billion millennia to reclaim.

My Dad wasn’t big on nature having a say in these matters. Man’s manifest destiny was to control and contain nature - especially those dastardly dandelions. Tomato hornworms were also on his must-kill list. I grew up thinking tomato plants were white, that’s how much death-powder he put on them. I’d guess my mother was horrified, but there was no point in saying anything. My Dad knew everything and everyone else knew squat. So I walk around my yard, extracting dandelions, pondering nature versus nurture. Do I have a genetic predisposition to kill dandies or did watching my Dad stalk and spray them all those years of my youth seal my fate? There are no clear answers and I don’t claim it’s a pretty picture. But my Dad was my Dad, faults and all, and every time I jab my pokey-weeder in the ground and hear a dandelion scream, I know a little part of him is there with me. Olivia L.

Summer is the perfect season for picnics and barbeques. However, it is also the season where extra precaution must be taken when handling and preparing the tasty foods that are enjoyed at picnics. Not only do people enjoy the summer ambiance, but bacteria also love it, too! The warm environment is perfect for producing and growing bacteria and other pathogens within the food that cause foodborne illness. This health district sees an increase in the number of foodborne disease cases every summer. The very young, the elderly and persons with chronic illness are most susceptible to these illnesses. Dehydration, resulting from the loss of bodily fluids through diarrhea or vomiting, can lead to serious complications, sometimes resulting in hospitalization. There are easy steps to take to decrease the risk of getting a foodborne illness. The most important step to reduce the risk of spreading foodborne illness is handwashing. Handwashing should occur before and after: handling raw meats; using the bathroom; petting animals; touching bare body parts; handling soiled equipment and utensils; after sneezing, coughing, and/or using handkerchief or disposable tissue; and after using tobacco, eating or drinking. Proper handwashing occurs when hot soapy water is used for at least 20 seconds (sing the happy birthday song twice). If running water is not available you can set up a make-shift handwashing station using hand soap and a container equipped with a spigot, and filled with warm water. You can also use disposable hand wipes or a waterless hand sanitizer if you have no access to running water.

Outdoor cooking, such as grilling, can also have the potential of creating a foodborne illness. Marinate foods such as raw meat, poultry or seafood which has been in the refrigerator until needed. Do not use the same sauce that was used to marinate the raw meat, poultry, or seafood on the cooked food. Also, do not use the same platter and utensils you used to handle the raw food product to serve the cooked meats, poultry and seafood on. When grilling the food, you must reach a certain internal temperature to make sure food is cooked thoroughly. Minimum temperature requirements to kill bacteria that may be within food are as follows: Ground beef patties - 155° F; Chicken - 165° F; Fin fish and pork 145° F: Stuffed meats, fish or poultry - 165° F; Shrimp, lobster, and crab - meat should be opaque and pearly; Clams, mussels, and oysters – shells must be open. How do you know you have reached these temperatures? A food thermometer is the tool you need to use. Take the temperature in the middle of the food product to ensure proper temperature has reached all parts of food. While a thermometer is the preferred and best method to check for doneness, you can cut into meat to check for doneness. The middle of hamburger should be brown and the chicken should have no pink. Another important, yet simple, food safety rule is : Keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold! Pretty basic, but pretty important. Many people think it is mayonnaise in food salads that cause foodborne illness when in fact it is more likely

to be other ingredients. Ingredients such as pasta, potatoes, eggs and tuna must be thoroughly chilled (45° F or below) before combining with other ingredients. The reason for this is bacteria can grow when ingredients are still warm. If you are traveling to a picnic and are bringing macaroni or potato or any type of salad containing dairy, meat or eggs, transport it on ice in a cooler. Once salads are outdoors, the best way to keep them cool is to nest the salad bowl into a bigger bowl that is filled with ice. Fruits and vegetables can also cause food borne illness if they are not handled properly. Before cooking and/or serving, fruits and vegetables should be washed under running water only (no soap). Melons should be cleaned using a vegetable brush due to the fact that bacteria and other pathogens on melon rinds can spread into the melon when cutting into it. Cut melons are considered potentially hazardous foods, so they must be kept on cold while serving. Once everyone is done eating, all leftovers must be refrigerated immediately. If food is left out for more that two hours, it should be discarded. If the temperature is 90° or above, do let food sit out for more than one hour. No one likes to discard food, but it may save a trip to the ER! The rule here is: “When in doubt, throw it out!” For written information on this topic, residents can call the Quinnipiac Valley Health District at 203 2484528 or request info online — An Ounce of Prevention is a weekly publication of the Quinnipiac Valley Health District, 1151 Hartford Turnpike, North Haven.

By Mike Freda There are times when we all encounter a great deal of complexity and stress in our daily lives. That complexity and stress sometimes revolves around the multiple demands that we face at work and in our daily lives. As we get wrapped up in that complexity, we sometimes tend to forget that there are ways to help us relax, recharge and reset our inner compass to Freda provide more balance within our daily lives. Here in North Haven, one of the weekly events that I think is an excellent way to pause and relax is our annual summer concert series. This year we have expanded our concerts to a total of 11, which includes 10 weeks of our “Music under the Stars” series. We will be preceding those 10 concerts with one other concert that will consist of a local group of outstanding vocalists and musicians from North Haven who will be performing a jazz concert festival on our green on Tuesday, June 19th. I would like to personally thank Stephen Cusano from North Haven for presenting this idea to us and thank him also for his goal to give back to our wonderfully run North Haven school’s music department headed by Mr. Ken Tedeschi. This opening concert will be a fabulous way to showcase our homegrown talented young men and women as we kick off our regular concert series. Starting with this jazz concert on June 19th, we will then begin our “Music under the Stars” series on June 26thth and we will have additional weekly concerts that will go all the way to Tuesday evening August 28th. Our music series includes: — Rich DiPalma- June 26th — Flashback- July 3rd — Big Shot with Mike DelGuidice- July 10th — Vinny Carr and the Party Band – July 17th — The Sixties Show- July 24th — Silverado- July 31st — The Classics- August 7th — B Willie Smith- August 14th — 8 to the Bar- August 21st — Primetime- August 28th I hope that you will join us this summer so that we can all enjoy the summer sounds of music and the coming together of our community to relax and have a good time. I look forward to seeing you and, you never know, I just might make my North Haven singing debut this year at one of those concerts! Mike Freda is the First Selectman of North Haven.

As such, committee members have planned additional fundraisers for the future, including an upcoming Zumba night. Past Montowese fundraisers which may be revisited, include a silent auction, getting a share of a day’s proceeds from Washington Avenue’s Subway shop, penny

wars, and sales of various school gear, including Tshirts and smencils, pencils which smell. Every cent raised counts. “We started this two-anda-half years ago, when our girls were in kindergarten, so that our girls would have

something to look forward to by the time they’re in the third grade,” said O’Brien, whose daughter Morgan attends Montowese with Wilson’s children Natalie and Allison. “Now, two of our daughters will be entering third

grade. They’re our inspiration. And we’re getting closer to getting them a new playground,” she added.

We’ve got some other things we are planning that we have not yet announced . . . we are taking it in stages.” Freda also spoke about developments adjacent to the Yale-New Haven project. “I wanted to point out that the building that is being constructed now is going to house a group of cardiolo-

gists,” Freda said. “We have a second building that is going to be constructed later in the year and that is going to be a high-end animal surgical referral center for those individuals who have pets.” This center is for pet owners whose animals may need treatments such as chemotherapy, hip replacements and knee replacements. “There are only two of these centers in the state and I am happy to report that we were able to bring this business in,” Freda said. Freda then explained that plans for the third building in this development are still underway, with nothing scheduled yet, and that the town is still entertaining possible tenants. The first selectman also spoke about the Hibachi Grill and Supreme Buffet slated for the Stop and Shop Plaza, adding that it is “making remarkable progress.” He hoped that its success would bring an opportunity to fill an adjacent parcel, located between the grill and Stop and Shop. “We are actively entertaining tenants there,” Freda said, “and we think that once the hibachi grill is up and running, that we will have some good news on that end of the plaza in the very near future.” Also mentioned was Leon’s Restaurant, new to North Haven and tentatively set to open in late July. “We have a lot of exciting things happening,” Freda

said. The meeting then focused on the appointments and resignations of various town positions, starting with Douglas E. Roberts, who had a seat on the Planning and Zoning Commission. Freda thanked Roberts for all that he did for the Town of North Haven during his time on the commission. Bert Mozealous from the Board of Education resigned this past May after making the decision to move out of North Haven, and was also honored for his dedicated services by the selectmen. The Blight and Prevention Appeals Board gained three new members as the selectmen approved the appointment of James H. Iovieno, Linda F. Currie-Zeffiro, and Steven M. Miller to serve a two-year term each. Mary Ann Hardy was also appointed to the Library Board to fill the unexpired term of Sara A. Aziz, term to expire December 31, 2013. Todd Ricci was approved to fill a vacancy on the Cemetery Commission, term to expire June 30, 2013. The reappointment of Mark Minotti to the Cable TV Advisory Council was approved for a two-year term as well. The Board of Selectmen then moved the acceptance of Bond Releases for both DonMar Development and Centro Properties Group with the recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission.

Tedeschi also will perform, as will current NHHS student and American Idol Season 11 contestant Gabi Carruba. “The concert is going to include a lot of jazz standards, Miles Davis, even John Mayer,” Cusano said.

All your hard work pays off. That’s what Mr. T showed us, and that’s the attitude I have carried on with my college-level music.” Tedeschi was appreciative for the concert in his honor. “It’s a lovely gesture by this

student and his friends,” Tedeschi said. “It’s wonderful to see that they are continuing with music. If we at North Haven High School were of some motivation for that, that’s great.” “I’m very flattered that they’re doing this, and I’m flattered that they’re letting me sit in and play some tunes with them,” he added. “I think it’s going to be a great night of music. I’m very much looking forward to it.” Cusano hoped that residents would still attend in strong numbers, even if they are not familiar with the performers or their musical style. “I don’t know if people know what to expect with

youth musicians or jazz. Hopefully, they’ll like listening to it, and they’ll go home and look up some of the jazz songs,” he said. “Hopefully we can help educate them on this music. It’s never really been on the North Haven Green, as far as I know.” The free concert begins at 7 p.m. Rain location is the high school auditorium. Donations are appreciated.

He went through North Haven High School and played on Bob DeMayo’s teams. He understood my situation. He was always there to talk to about music.” “He introduced me into the jazz world,” he added. “And that’s where I am now.” Despite a busy athletic schedule in high school, Cusano still found time to play drums in concert band and Tedeschi’s smaller student jazz groups.
