Special ed staff ‘reshuffling’ postponed after emotional meeting By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Board of Education members voted June 21 to delay measures suggested by Superintendent Dr. Robert Cronin which could have prompted special education teacher layoffs. “The kids are too important and we had lost track of that,” said BOE member Alicia Clapp, who motioned for postponement until after formation of exploratory committees for further research. “It was just unfortunate.”

Clapp’s movement came toward the end of a contentious, emotionallycharged public forum in North Haven High School’s auditorium, held so Cronin could clarify to BOE members plans he had recently crafted for North Haven’s educational future. In a PowerPoint presentation which began the evening, Cronin’s suggestions included potential reassignment of three special education instructors to different departments, and eventual dismissal of six additional

special ed teachers. Eliminated positions would have been filled by new hires who could bring skill sets to areas of concern identified by Cronin, such as professional development and curriculum. Interviews were to begin Wednesday, June 22. However, after hours of passionate, public comment by parents, teachers, residents, students and state and municipal officials — some through tears and others in anger — BOE members canceled interviews indefinitely. “I don’t want any changes

Local educators attend bullying forum in town By Michael Torelli The North Haven Citizen Bullying and safe school environments continue to be discussion topics for North Haven educators. Jo Ann Freiberg, of the Connecticut State Department of Education, gave a presentation entitled “Creating Respectful and Safe Edu-

cational Environments” in Clintonville Elementary School’s conference room on June 15. Freiberg, who holds seminars across the country, addressed information about bullying and character improvement for students. With experience as an educator, she now informs teachers and parents about poten-

tial risks at schools. Lauretta Dowling, Clintonville Elementary School Principal, introduced Freiberg to a group of teachers, administrators and parents. “Today, everything is bullying,” Freiberg said, alluding to hazy lines which sepa-

Citizen photos by Michael York, submitted by Howard Eckels

Last week, North Haven Soccer Club’s U-19 Girl’s team won the Connecticut State Cup Championship, capping off an undefeated run. For the full story and more pictures, see page 27.

Facing charges of selling prescription painkiller Oxycontin, Anthony Buono, CEO of North Haven business Cable Systems Inc., was sentenced last week to 18 months in prison and ordered to pay a $50,000 fine. Buono, 51, was sentenced June 15 by U.S. District Judge Stefan R. Underhill in Bridgeport to a year and a half in prison followed by

three years supervised release, the first six months of that to be spent in home confinement, according to the Department of Justice. Buono, David Deloughery and Maureen Gulianello went into partnership in 1998, when Buono began paying the two to use forged prescriptions to buy the drug. All three sold the pills on the street, according to

State to regulate synthetic marijuana and salvia

HARTFORD – Representative Dave Yaccarino (R-87) recently hailed passage of legislation he co-sponsored that will effectively ban the sale and possession of synthetic marijuana and salvia divinorum. Senate Bill 1098 – An Act Regulating The Sale And Possession Of Synthetic Marijuana And Salvia Divinorum requires the commissioner of the Department of Consumer Protection to adopt regulations designat-

ing five specified synthetic versions of marijuana, along with salvia divinorum (a perennial herb in the mint family native to certain parts of Mexico) and salvinorum A (its active constituent) as controlled substances. “I co-sponsored this legislation to add another layer of protection for our children against constantly changing and increasingly dangerous drugs,” Rep. Yaccarino said. “Too many kids think drugs like marijuana, and now

plies to the substances. The substances are: 1. 1-pentyl-3-(1-naphthoyl)indole (JWH-018); 2. 1-butyl-3-(1-naphthoyl)indole (JWH-073); 3. 1-[2-(4-morpholinyl)ethyl]3-(1-naphthoyl)indole (JWH200); 4. 5-(1,1-dimethylheptyl)-2[(1R,3S)-3-hydroxycyclohexyl]-phenol (CP-47,497); 5. 5-(1,1-dimethyloctyl)-2[(1R,3S)-3-hydroxycyclohexyl]-phenol (cannabicyclohexanol; CP-47,497 C8 homologue); 6. salvia divinorum; 7. salvinorum A.

On March 1, 2011, the federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) administrator issued a final order to temporarily classify the substances above as Schedule I controlled substances for one year (76 Fed. Reg. 11,075 (March 1, 2011)). The DEA order described these substances as synthetic cannabinoids, a large family of unrelated structures that are functionally similar to the active principle of marijuana. Marijuana is classified as

their synthetic equivalent, are not dangerous or will not be harmful to them. In fact, it’s just the opposite as many of these drugs, especially those engineered in a lab, are more potent and potentially more addictive.” Drugs like Salvia, “gateway” drugs as they’re sometimes referred because their use can lead to additional drug use, have been gaining in popularity in recent years and with this law Connecticut takes a firm stand to protect its citizens, Yaccarino added. Yaccarino said he was especially thankful to Nancy Leddy, director of North Haven’s Substance Abuse Action Council, who made him aware of the dangers this drug creates within the community. Leddy also serves as North Haven’s Youth Services Administrator. The bill specifies that the designation may be by whatever official, common, usual, chemical, or trade name ap-

Recreation plans summer fun for residents By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

With the sun-filled, warm days of summer upon town, people are looking to fill their days and evenings with activities that will relax, entertain, occupy and recharge. The Department of Recreation takes pride in presenting and providing

summer concerts on the town green, and a variety of programs and events for all ages, including summer day camps, aquatic and youth sports programs. “With summer now here, my staff and I are busy promoting and hosting our summer programs that are open to residents and non-residents. Our summer concert series ‘Music Under the

Stars 2011’ starts on Tuesday, June 28, and runs through Tuesday, August 23,” said Eileen Pettit, assistant director of the recreation department. “The concerts are very popular and well attended each year.” Pettit explained that the concerts and parking are free. The concert series has been a town tradition for over 30 years, and are possible thanks to the generosity of the North Haven business community and town organizations. The concerts are held on Tuesday evenings. “Many of our sponsors come back year after year, and they haven’t cut back on their generosity, especially during these difficult times, and we are very grateful for all they do,” Pettit said. “There is a variety of music that appeals to people of all ages, including the Oldies

from the 50s and 60s, tribute bands, The Classics and popular crooners. The concerts and parking are free and people bring their lawn chairs, coolers, blankets and find their special place on the town green. If people wish to purchase food there are food vendors on the premises.” “I circulate the green with my staff to get feedback and meet new faces while reacquainting ourselves with old and familiar friends,” added Pettit. “The trees on the North Haven Green provide ample shade and a nice cool breeze that are a welcome relief on a hot summer night.” Pettit and her staff —including Andy DelVecchio, Lynne Cole, Jennifer Klein, John Bimonte, Marc Russo, and Rich Gaudio — begin in October preparing for the concert series. Preparation involves previewing tapes and CDs of various performers, mixing up the line up set and getting contracts in, sealed and signed by January. Also, coordinating the sound system, obtaining sponsor-

ships, doing advertising on the radio, in newspapers, and on posters, and coordinating things with public works, fire, police and other departments who lend a hand with the concerts. “I personally enjoy talking to the people at the concerts and I enjoy dancing with the seniors,” said First Selectman Michael Freda. “Tuesday nights are important to the residents, because it’s concert night when people are relaxing, dancing, and enjoying wonderful music with family and friends.” “Due to the overwhelming attendance and many requests from our residents, we are pleased to add two additional concerts making a total of nine concert series,” he added. Besides the concert series, the recreation department offers a variety of programs and camps. There are three camps available, including the Summer Day Camp for boys and girls ages 6-12, for residents only, the Pre-School Program or Little Rec’ers is for boys and girls ages 3-5, for residents and non-residents, and the Playground Camp for boys and girls ages 6-12. All three camps run for six week from July 5 to August 12.

The dogs’ Connecticut owners are among many people nationwide turning to allergy-sniffing service dogs, who accompany their handlers to detect allergens and their residue at school, during social events and in other everyday activities. As their popularity grows, though, some owners are having mixed success in convincing businesses, schools and those in charge of other public venues that the dogs must be accepted as service animals, just as dogs whose handlers’ disabilities are more readily apparent. They’re already specifically recognized as medical service dogs in recent updates to the federal Americans with Disabilities Act, but some parents are taking it a step further by lobbying their local and state officials to update their regulations, too. “The dog is just one way we can help our daughter have a more normal life,” said Pam Minicucci of North Haven, whose 7-year-old daughter, Gianna, is constantly accompanied by her allergy-sniffing St. Bernard named Boo. Minicucci asked Connecticut lawmakers this year to add allergy-sniffing dogs to the state statutes to mirror

the ADA language, but the bill languished in a committee without full General Assembly action. Gianna’s allergy to peanut products, tree nuts and their residue in the air or on surfaces is so severe that even minuscule particles can trigger hives, itching and difficulty breathing that has sent her to the hospital several times. She carries an inhaler, wipes, Benadryl and EpiPen injectors everywhere in case she encounters anything to which she’s allergic. She and Boo get mixed reactions as they go to public venues and school, even though the dog wears a vest identifying it as a service animal. “Our goal is for the dog to be with her everywhere she goes,” Gianna’s mother said. “I don’t expect people to change their world for us, but I do expect them to allow us to protect our child in the way we need to.” State and federal agencies do not track the number of allergy-specific service dogs in the nation, but handlers and trainers say they’re fielding more inquiries and orders in recent years. They attribute it to a growing

this fiscal year,” said First Selectman Michael Freda to Cronin and BOE members, who sat on stage. “I want this to be done in a systematic, collaborative fashion.” Many in the packed auditorium criticized Cronin for what they alleged were swift actions in deciding to eliminate teachers, determinations he had based on three professional reviews of local special education services, one from 2008 and two in 2011. “I think you need to slow down. I think you need to take your time and invest more time in understanding the community first,” said North Haven State Senator Len Fasano. “To proceed with haste because of reports from a third party doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. What we need to do is examine the questions at play.”

Speakers also worried about how layoffs would affect students. “All the data you have is great, but there are also the human elements.” said North Haven State Representative David Yaccarino. Parents of special education children said consistency best served their kids. “My son does not react well to change,” said Patricia Pappas, mother of two autistic children. “He has high anxiety.” “You’ve looked at three reports, none of which suggested getting rid of teachers,” said Howard Eckels, local father of a special education student. “My feeling is that you’re putting the horse before the cart.” Other parents of special education children said they would consider placing their kids out of district should Cronin trim staffing.

Patriots and Scoundrels Book 2, Part 34 By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen

When a curious Mrs. Kensington inquired about the identity of Simon’s adversary, he arrogantly answered by saying the person was someone she had despised for a long time and would be just as pleased as he would be to have this person done away with. Their conversation was interrupted by Dr. Greenville’s

voice calling out to Mrs. Kensington from the hall. Simon told Mrs. Kensington that he would see her at the ball, and then he made his escape through the secret passage. Darkness soon came, as did the guests making their arrival to Singleton Lodge. Flaming torches lined the road to the entrance of the mansion and footmen dressed in fancy outfits and white wigs helped to escort the women from their car-

riages. Alexander and Constance were a dutiful host and hostess as they greeted their guests. Charity stood off to the side in her elegant blue gown watching the great room as it became crowded with finely dressed elegant ladies and gentlemen eager to dance and dine. When the musicians began to play, several of the guests gathered in the middle of the room to dance. As Charity looked into the crowd, there were people like Dr. and Mrs. Foote, Mr. and Mrs. Pierpont, Reverend and Mrs. Trumbull, and others with whom Charity was acquainted. There were many others who Charity did not know. She saw Mrs. Kensington and Dr. Greenville enter, and she could tell by Constance’s expression she was not delighted to see them. Charity did not want to confront Mrs. Kensington, so she made certain to avoid her. As she made her way to get a glass of punch, she had a pleasant introduction and encounter with Mr. and Mrs. Fairchild and their son Ethan, who was accompa-

nied by Honoria Noble and Mrs. Fairchild’s sister, Evelyn Winchester. They all greeted her with smiles and polite manners. Mrs. Fairchild seemed preoccupied by staring into the crowd. After a few moments, she took her husband’s hand, and they graciously left. Evelyn Winchester was polite as she engaged in pleasant conversation. Ethan was very charming, as was Honoria. As Charity looked upon Honoria, she began to recall the night she made her first appearance at Singleton Lodge at the ball hosted by Monsieur and Madame Monnerat. Her arrival shocked all the guests and greatly disturbed Mrs. Kensington. Evelyn eventually excused herself and went to join Mr. and Mrs. Fairchild. “It is wonderful to make your acquaintance Miss Chastine,” said Honoria with a sincere smile. “I hope we can become friends. Ethan and I are very soon to be engaged, and I would like to share our profound happiness with new acquaintances.” “I am very happy for you

both and wish you the very best in the future,” Charity replied. “Thank you for your kind words,” said Ethan. “Now, would you two lovely ladies allow me the pleasure of escorting you into the ballroom?” he asked as he extended his arms to Charity and Honoria. As they entered the ballroom, Charity glanced at Mrs. Kensington, who was watching her with her crocodile eyes. Charity also observed Dr. Greenville, who was in the corner having what appeared to be a serious and disturbing conversation with Mrs. Fairchild. Then she saw Dr. Greenville leave the room abruptly. Ethan and Honoria excused themselves as they went to dance, and Charity remained to the side while watching them and the other guests dance. Suddenly, Charity was confronted by Mrs. Kensington, who tapped her on the shoulder with her fan. “My dear Charity, you are looking well this evening. It seems that life at Singleton Lodge is agreeing with you. How very fortunate for you! Charles misses you dearly. Perhaps one day you may call upon him and me at Kensington Hall. I can assure you that you will enjoy your visit,” said a sly Mrs. Kensington. Charity did not make any promises but thanked her former employer for her gracious invitation. Then she politely excused herself by taking her leave to another part of the room. When the dance ended, Alexander and Constance stood in the center of the room while the servants walked among the guests carrying trays of champagne glasses. After everyone re-

rate bullying from non-abusive acts. When it came to North Haven, Freiberg felt the town had invested a lot of time and resources to improve school climates. “This isn’t a blame game – it’s about identifying common standards and values for how people treat one another,” Freiberg said. “You cannot expect students to treat others appropriately if the role models in their lives are not consistently upholding and role modeling the appropriate behavior.” Because some parents do not know what is going on in the schools, they might fear a lack of adult involvement, she said, frustrating parents’

attempts to make anti-bulling efforts from home. Freiberg suggested that parents talk with teachers to remind them to stay involved in classrooms. One issue mentioned by a parent was when bullies are brought to the principal’s office. He was concerned that the discretion of the office overpowers the discretion of the parents, and does not allow parents to see or hear about how the bully is punished. To that, Freiberg brought up the federal Family Educational Rights Privacy Act (FERPA). “FERPA says that you, as a parent, can only hear information about your child, especially with respect to discipline,” Freiberg explained. The office is not allowed to share the information of an-

Bullying, Freiberg felt, is still overlooked by educators. “I’m considered to be an expert, but let me tell you, I don’t know what bullying looks like, feels like, and sounds like,” Freiberg said. The problem that Freiberg sees when it comes to enforcement of positive school climates is when adults do not follow through with proper reactions. To be responsiSee Bullying, page 32

When Pam Minicucci

peered down below the shelves, she found the reason: a minuscule amount of peanut butter on a mouse trap far out of reach, but still close enough to potentially trigger Gianna’s allergies. The training for Boo and other allergy-sniffing dogs is similar to that of police dogs learning to track scents or dogs being trained to sniff out explosives for the military — which, in fact, inspired trainer Sherry Mers to work in the field after seeing a television show on bomb-sniffing dogs. The Monument, Colo., woman launched Angel Service Dogs after getting a trained dog to help her 10year-old daughter, Riley, avoid peanut products and residue from cross-contamination. Mers said the dogs may not be the right fit for

every family, but that for children like her daughter, they literally can be lifesavers. “It’s not just about the dog — it’s not just about the allergy. It’s about making sure your kid can exist in a world today so they don’t have a disability,” Mers said. “The reaction seems to be extremes: Either people are so accommodating they can’t help but help you more, or they immediately go to this place of feeling that I’m violating their rights by trying to protect my child.” In a few cases, those disputes have attracted widespread attention. In Indianapolis, for instance, a woman with a potentially life-threatening allergy to paprika got a specially trained dog to sniff out the substance. When she brought the dog to work, though, a co-worker who was allergic to dogs had an asthma attack. The dog’s owner filed a complaint with the U.S.

Equal Employment Opportunity Commission after she was asked to leave the dog at home or take unpaid leave. The case is pending. In other cases, though, the dogs have been welcomed. In Ansonia, school officials have been so accommodating of 13-year-old Jeff Glazer’s dog, Riley, that they installed special HEPA filters to the schools’ air-circulation systems to ensure the yellow Labrador’s presence wouldn’t cause problems for children allergic to dogs. Though Jeff ‘s mother says they encounter some people who have concerns about the dog, they say others are supportive. “Now that I have Riley, I can go to restaurants and movies and my friends’ houses and not have to worry about it,” Jeff said on a recent sunny afternoon, getting ready to stretch before a game with his traveling baseball team on a MiddleSee Dogs, next page

bury sports field. Before Jeff enters the dugout or touches the gear, though, Riley sniffs down everything for lingering residue from previous players who might have eaten peanut butter sandwiches, candy or other items. If Riley finds something, they use sanitary hand wipes — which Jeff and his family carry — to clean the surface thoroughly so he’s not endan-

gered. Other than Riley’s red service dog vest, he looks like any other pet accompanying his young master — exactly the kind of normalcy that once seemed out of reach. “Riley really has changed his life. It’s not a perfect world, it’s not a perfect solution - we also have to use our heads and be aware of what’s going on,” said Jeff ’s mother, Lisa Glazer. “We still read labels, we still ask questions, we still go through the whole thing at restaurants, but Riley is our safety net.”

Local landmark

To the editor: Nestled between New Haven’s Majestic East and West Rocks and the expanse of Hamden’s Sleeping Giant is North Haven’s Peter’s Rock, originally the “high Rock.” In 1641 the shareholders of the young New Haven Colony, the Proprietors, decided that there had to be a clear process for separating lands to be owned and common lands for public use. When the Proprietors of the New Haven Colony met in New Haven, April 29, 1718, it was voted and approved to “sequester for commons the west Rocks, the high Rock and also that half of the Blue Hills lying next to the Mill River.” Town Commons were fields and high rocks. Regulations governing the use of “commons” constitute America’s first formal con-

Special education

over 30 years working with children and adults with special needs. I own a for-profit company that provides these services and founded a nonprofit that also works to provide special needs services. I have not the answer, not the solution, but the fact still remains those kids with special needs deserve and require large dollars to care for and the money for this care has vanished. So, with great ambiguity, I think we need to discuss these issues of shortfalls and costs with the teachers’ unions, admin folks, school boards and local state representatives and resolve ourselves to a new business model or alternative method not requiring all these costly academic credentials. Kids with special needs need to be included in their community of more able individuals. They need basic

servation. However, while East and West Rocks and Sleeping Giant rest peacefully, North Haven’s Rock has had three owners, name changes, sold at auction and the town sued for redemption of money, the wrong Indians sitting atop sending smoke signals (if any) and a beautiful “hermitage” built on its top, which later burned to the ground. Not the least was the threat of converting trap rock and the surrounding soil and stone into the growth of I-91 during the 1960s! Located in southern Montowese, Peter’s Rock is North Haven’s highest landmark at 373’. Philomena Gambardella North Haven

An Ounce of Prevention

Is green tea the newest fad? By V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH Green tea isn’t just a beverage anymore. You will find it added to many kinds of food. It has become the newest marketing item to hit the shelves. Is this just the latest food fad, is it appealing because everything is “going green” or is it because there are true health benefits associated with green tea? Researchers have been studying tea (all forms) for quite a while (as they have with coffee). Wouldn’t it be great if we could cure our ailments by drinking tea? Tea has a long history of consumption, dating back to Colonial times in this country. Certainly, a cup of hot tea can be a soothing way to sit and relax. Ice tea on a hot day is very refreshing. But do the benefits of tea (green or black) go beyond those physical pleasures? There are different types of tea: green, black and oolong. The majority of the studies done on the health effects of tea are about traditional (non-herbal) teas, including green, black, or oolong, made from the Camel-

lia sinensis plant. The difference in type comes from how they are processed. Green tea is made from the unfermented leaves, while black tea is made from the fermented leaves. The scientific evidence for attributing a positive health effect comes from the fact that tea contains fairly high flavonoid content. Flavonoids come from the polyphenols (sometimes described as antioxidants) found in tea. The most studied flavonoids are catechins, specifically EGCG. (Not sure what the letters stand for, but you may see it listed on an ingredients list.) So what do flavonoids have to do with health? Flavonoids are antioxidants which may play a role in preventing disease in the human body. But, according to the Nutrition Action Health Letter (May 2011) review of scientific studies article “Tea Time,” while the health benefits of tea in laboratory animals are impressive, the same can not be said from research with humans.

Peter Brockett of Peter’s Rock By Philomena Gambardella

Peter’s Rock, the highest point in North Haven (373 feet), is a lofty monument to a man who never owned the Rock. Peter Brocket did live “at the northern base of the more rocky bluff ” of the Rock, not as a “hermit” as folklore records, but with his wife, Elizabeth. “Brockett was a Revolutionary soldier, and a severe wound had so deformed his

ample, the polyphenols found in green tea seem to protect lab animals from stroke damage following a stroke. (They were not found to prevent stokes.) Similarly, results show that tea might slow the progression of prostate or breast cancer, but it won’t prevent it. For both black and green tea, there seems to be some evidence that it may slow cognitive (memory) decline. Scientists will keep studying tea (and coffee) because it would be a great finding it tea could prevent disease. However, it is very difficult to isolate out the effects of tea on health from other factors. In the meantime, there is no reason why you shouldn’t drink tea if you enjoy tea. While green tea seems to be the tea in the limelight these days, benefits may come from both green and black tea. To get the maximum ef-

spine as to render him a cripple.” Source for the legendary history of “Peter’s Rock” is Sheldon Thorpe, “North Haven in the Nineteenth Century.” Born 15 November 1771, Peter was a young child during the Revolutionary War (1775-1783). He was the son of Abel (1725-1815) and Hannah Pierpont Brockett (17361816), the lineal descendent of the Surveyor, John Brockett, Sr. (1659/90), and the great-grandson of the Rev.

iors (like the model used by the Senior Core of Executives (SCORE) for the local Chambers of Commerce). I certainly understand that we need to provide these services because I help to provide these services every working day of the week, but I also strongly support the need to dramatically reduce costs, still protect the interests of the vulnerable but also protect all tax payers of our town and our state. Tad Duni North Haven fects of the flavonoids (if that is your goal) you need to consume a fresh-brewed cup of tea that has been steeped for three-five minutes. The tea must be consumed promptly as flavonoids break down with time; therefore bottled teas do not add as much flavonoids to your diet. (Onions are also a good source of flavonoids.) When drinking bottled tea, look for products made from brewed green tea, not tea extracts or concentrate.

An Ounce of Prevention is written by QVHD Deputy Director V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH.

James Pierpont (1659-1714), Minister of the First Ecclesiastical Society of New Haven and the benefactor of the North Haven Green. In his “Families of Ancient New Haven” Donald Lines Jacobus lists Peter in his compilation of families, but omits his marriage to Elizabeth Brockett and their two sons, Harvey and Lumen. North Haven land records preserve the reality of this family. May 5, 1807: Ebenezer Brockett (1729-1812) deeds to his daughter, Elizabeth, 2 ½ acres of land “together with the East half of my dwelling house and half the cellar.” To her brother, Joel, 2 ½ acres of land “together with half of my dwelling house and half cellar viz West half.” On June 5, 1827, Mrs. Peter Brockett purchased 4 ¼ acres of land from Roger Skinner “on the East end of

Rabbit Hill” bounded “on the West by Rabbit Hill Rock.” June 6, 1827: “We, Peter Brockett and Elizabeth Brockett, husband and wife, assign to my son, Harvey Brockett of North Haven and to his heirs, land containing 2 ½ acres together with the East half of the dwelling house, reserving the shop and timber on said land that belongs to me, the said Peter Brockett.” June 13: 1827: Peter sold “to my son, Lumen,” the one acre salt meadow land he had purchased from his father, Abel, in 1802, “reserving the use and improvements of said meadow during the term of my natural life and the natural life of my wife, Elizabeth.” Harvey moved to Virginia; Lumen married Phebe Cooper, the great-granddaughter of Deacon Thomas Cooper (1703-1784), brother of Jude

Cooper (1714-1781). North Haven maps of 1856 and 1869 and land records place the families of Peter and Joel Brockett in a shared house situated between today’s 5 and 41 Quinnipiac Avenue. Peter Brockett died August 1845. The last 18 years of his life were spent with his wife, Elizabeth, in their home “at the northern base of the more rocky bluff ” of Rabbit Hill Rock. Two months after Peter’s death, on Oct. 18, 1845, Elizabeth sold the land “with the buildings thereon” to Joel Thompson of East Haven, who, in 1847, sold the property to Jesse O. Eaton. Peter Brockett, obscure in life, his grave site unknown; in death, a legendary figure of the history of North Haven. Source: North Haven Land Records.

State Representative David Yaccarino held his Office Hours, BBQ at McDonald’s, hosted by John McKnight, owner. The event was well attended. Yaccarino handed a document concerning details of the 2011 General Assembly, a comparison sheet of the governor’s budget proposal from February 2011, the Republican alternative from April 2011, and the adopted State budget from May 2011. The event consisted of a presentation of how laws are made. He also gave a detailed explanation of his opinion of the current State fiscal situation. First Selectman Freda then explained the effect the current State situation would have on the Town of North Haven if the governor holds to his layoffs if he doesn’t get union concessions. The event was then opened to questions from the audience. Photo 1 (left to right): First Selectman Mike Freda, McDonald’s owner John McKnight and Representative Dave Yaccarino. Photo 2: Rep.

U-19 girls’ soccer ends season with undefeated record and division title By Michael Torelli The North Haven Citizen

An undefeated season for the girls’ U-19 North Haven Soccer Club culminated last week after Madison forfeited their last match. A record of eight wins completed the season, leading the team to a South Central

District Division title for the A-Division. Both players and coaches gained much from the season. The last game played by the team, away at Simsbury, ended in a score of 3-2. “That was a great way to end the season,” said player Gina Carbone. The North Haven team scored two

goals within the first 20 minutes, and not long after, Simsbury caught up. As Carbone put it, during the second half of the game, her teammates all pulled it together and scored the final, determining point. Carbone felt that soccer is “not a one-person game.” Having played for 12 years, she enjoys the fact that it is

non-stop action. Every game is new to her, and it is enjoyable to play. As for the past season, she thought the team did a tremendous job, especially when it came to working together. Teammate Theresa DeFalco has been playing soccer for 13 years. The

reasons for playing so long, to her, are the people on her team, the coaches, and “just the game of it.” She enjoys the strategic plays that are put into action on the field, seeing all their hard work come to life. DeFalco said that one rea-

son for their perfect success was that the U-19 squad was really good as a team. When one player was down, everyone else picked her up, she added. Co-Coach Federico Fiondella explained that for roughly 10 years, there wasn’t a team. It was brought back three years ago, and each year the roster has in-


creased. With 23 girls on the team, the players range from the ages of 14 to 19, which Fiondella felt “is a nice roster.” Fiondella is also the coach for the High School boy’s soccer team, where he found his co-coach, Michael Dickinson. Dickinson played for Fiondella and graduated from high school in 2002. Now they’ve been coaching together for three years. With the club sport aligned with the high school soccer team, the club starts playing in April and stops playing in June. “It’s important to get the

23 years, Dickinson wanted to coach so that way he could teach young minds, and stay a part of the organization. Dickinson was happy with the last season, stating that it was an “impressive season overall.” As for the Soccer Club, there are a range of leagues, going all the way to players born in late 2006 to early 2007, who play in a U-5 team. Dickinson felt the club does a great job. “The people who work behind the scenes are very friendly,” he said. Carbone said that the club makes sure everyone is there for the right reasons, and they do a good job. DeFalco felt that even though there are times where you want to win, you still have fun doing it.

Both she and Carbone agreed that the coaches know how to communicate with the players, and know what to say at what time. In regards to the soccer club, they both said that it’s a fun thing to do. There’s always a good amount of play time, DeFalco mentioned. “Our team is a very determined team,” Dickinson said. “They play at one pace: full speed ahead.” Being part of the club for

Connex donates to Project Graduation

Continued from page 8

Connex Credit Union recently donated $5,000 to North Haven High School’s Project Graduation. Project Graduation, a 24-year-old tradition, is an all-night substance-free celebration given for the graduating class and funded with the help of donations from parents and local businesses. Immediately following the commencement ceremony, the graduates will board coach buses to travel to Quassy Amusement Park in Middlebury. Upon arrival, students will partake in a myriad of activities such as amusement park rides, music provided by a DJ, arcade games, a hypnotist, food and prizes. This year’s Project Graduation theme is Hawaiian Luau, which mirrors the theme of their senior prom held in May 2011. The goal of this night is to give the graduates a safe place to be together after graduation. Pictured (left to right): Rebekah Llinares, Danielle Powers and Thomas Sullivan, Project Graduation Planning committee members; Tansley Stearns, Connex vice president of sales and service; Nancy Leddy, Town of North Haven Youth Services administrator; Amy Stanton, Connex AVP of marketing; Charlie Hoyt and Laura Swirsky, Project Graduation Planning committee members.

North Haven special education instructor Dot Logan partly concurred with Cronin. “I agree that we need changes in the special education department . . . but not with the abrupt dismissal of teachers,” she said. “The special ed teachers are so concerned, that in May 2008, we did two surveys. We tried to bring about change. In the three years since, I have seen little change.” According to Logan, communication between special ed services and administration requires improvement. “When the layoff notices came last week, to not have any input before, that was very sad to see,” she added. “Can we slow things down, have input, have dialogue, and then proceed from there?” Tom Marak, president of the North Haven Education Association, the teachers’ union, censured Cronin’s intentions. “The North Haven Education Association supported the Board of Education budget with the understanding that existing programs and staffing be preserved,” he said. NHHS history teacher Anthony Giordano favored addi-

tions rather than cuts to special education programs. “If we need appropriations to put the plans forward, it’s as simple as going to the town and asking for it,” he said. Cronin believes the same level of special education services in town could be accomplished with fewer employees, thus allowing for allocation of scholastic funds elsewhere. “We would be moving the resources to other places in the district where we have needs,” Cronin said. “These are just ideas about what we could do. Our job now is to have a discussion about what we want to do.” Pupil caseloads for town special ed teachers were lower than Connecticut municipalities with similarly-sized academic systems, he added. For the 2010-11 school year, North Haven’s education district employed 35 special ed teachers for 402 kids, while out-placed special ed students numbered 57. At times, Tuesday’s forum broke down into seated audience members shouting at onstage officials. While many public speakers defended Cronin’s belief that local special education services required modifications, none defended his suggestion of reshuffling positions.

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, June 24, 2011 scream was heard from outside the terrace. Many of the guests hurried outside while following Alexander as he led them into the garden where they found a poor Caroline standing next to the body of a man that was facedown on the ground with a sharp object in his back. As Alexander approached the dead man, he studied his face, and then regrettably announced that it was Dr. Greenville. Several women gasped from fright, some of

Please take notice that the following decisions were rendered by the North Haven Zoning Board of Appeals on Thursday, June 16, 2011 at the Mildred A. Wakeley Community & Recreation Center, 7 Linsley Street, in Room #2 at 7:30 PM.


TAXES DUE TOWN OF NORTH HAVEN 2010 Grand List -- Real Estate, Personal Property and Motor Vehicle Tax Bills (Pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes (C.G.S.) § 12-145) The first installment, of Real Estate and Personal Property taxes for the Town of North Haven on the grand list of October 1, 2010, is due and payable July 1, 2011. Motor vehicle taxes are due in full July 1, 2011 (Pursuant to C.G.S. § 12-7). Payments must be received by (or bear the U. S. Postal Service postmark dated no later than) August 1, 2011, to avoid interest. As of August 2, 2011, interest will accrue at the rate of 1½ % per month or fraction thereof (18% per year), on all unpaid taxes due in July on the 2010 grand list and will be computed from July 1, 2011. Each addition of interest shall become due and collectable and shall be figured on the original amount of tax. If back taxes are due, payments will be applied to the oldest outstanding bill first; interest will be paid before principal and lien fees (C.G.S. § 12-144b). On each tax bill that becomes delinquent, a minimum interest charge of $2.00 will be collected (C.G.S. § 12-146). All delinquent motor vehicle taxes requiring a release for motor vehicle registration should be paid by cash, certified check or money order to avoid delay caused by use of checks.
