Democrats announce full slate of candidates for 2011 town election By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen
After months of speculation, North Haven’s Democratic Town Committee (DTC) officially announced candidates for the town’s 2011 municipal election, including Walter Spader for First Selectman.
Spader, 37, was Connecticut’s Democratic Party communications director from 1996-2000 and currently serves as a lawyer with the Marcus Law Firm in North Branford. Completing the DTC’s selectman ticket is Alan Sturtz, North Haven’s tax collector in 2007-09. Angela Flemming will run for
Retiring police officer served community for 11 years By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen After 11 years of law enforcement service, Officer Michael Compare is retiring from the North Haven Police Department. Sworn in as a police officer in September of 2000, Compare leaves the force with good experience and memories. “These past 11 years have been great. I have had the privilege of working with an amazing group of men and women who I am proud to call my brothers and sisters,” stated Compare. “Because of this job, they become your family who you depend on and they depend on you. We watch each other’s back and we do our job with honor and loyalty.” Compare explained that ever Citizen photo courtesy of Johan Mellin since he could reRetiring North Haven police officer Michael member he had alCompare with his girlfriend Maria Pescatore, ways wanted to be a police officer. He a nurse currently stationed in Afghanistan. wanted to get into a profession that not only serves and protects but also helps others. “There are family photos of me when I was a little boy dressed up as a cop trying to arrest my brother,” Compare said. His professional role model was of close relation. “My father Gary See Retiring, page 6
town clerk/tax collector while William Gambardella will run for town treasurer, a civic role he filled in 2007-09. For the Board of Education, Jennifer Caldwell and Martin Piccirillo will seek six-year terms, while Kristen Brandt will challenge for a twoyear term. DTC chairman Peter Criscuolo said filling out a ballot was difficult, given North Haven’s political climate. “I want to thank the candidates who put themselves out there. Between the media and people taking shots at people all the time, it was very difficult to get candidates,” he said at the Democrats’ July 19 meeting, before disclosure of nominations. “Between busy working schedules and people giving up their time in this tough economy, we really appreciate the candidates,” he said. In his nomination acceptance speech, Spader also referenced North Haven’s sometimes-caustic political atmosphere. “We need to change the culture of discourse in town,” he said. “I’m not talking about quashing dissent. I mean that we have to present actual answers at public meetings.” “I want to find common trends that hold us together in town,” he added. “I want to usher in a new era of Democratic Town Committee in town.” Undeniably, playing a major role in the town’s political culture now is the long-running Republican blog The North Haven Way, where website author Chris Peterson and anonymous commentators analyze local politicians daily, and frequently in critical terms. “The rhetoric in politics can be a dark place sometimes,” Spader said, before acknowledging Peterson, who was in attendance. “I see Chris back there. Unfortunately, I think that’s the North Haven way.” An interesting dynamic in the 2011 election could be Spader’s relationship with The North Haven Way. Of all DTC members, he would seem to have among the best rapport with Peterson, who has a history of supporting Spader when blogging about local liberals. In 2009’s municipal election, every candidate Peterson backed on his blog won.

While Spader did not mention any specific leadership areas he would focus on in regard to current First Selectman Michael Freda, who took office in 2009’s Republican sweep, he hinted at scrutiny of Freda’s performance record. “I want to usher in an honest debate,” Spader said, “Are we better off today than we were two years ago? Have promises that were made been kept?” For the first time in over two decades, Steve Fontana will not be part of the DTC’s ballot. “I want to thank Fontana for his service to the town,” Spader said in his speech. Earlier that night, Fontana acknowledged James Hogan Jr., whose tenure as a Democratic BOE member would be ending. “We appreciate all his services to the town,” Fontana said. “He brought a distinct and important perspective to the board.” Additional DTC candidates for

A Cut-a-thon will be held Sunday, July 31, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Hair Dimensions, 117 Washington Ave. Proceeds will go directly to help a family with mounting health care costs: Chris and Jessica (Jamilkowski) Bassett, were born and raised in North Haven. They are raising their children in their hometown. Jessica, at 17, was diagnosed
with Neurofibromatosis Type 2. By age 20 she had lost all hearing. The same disease is now causing a tumor to grow on her vocal cord and another is putting pressure on her brain. Chris has been suffering from chronic Lyme Disease and is now working with a specialist. Their daughter, Taryn, has been diagnosed with below normal hearing and has a need for costly hearing aids.

Library patrons learn about pyramids and pharaohs By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen Amateur Egyptologist Paulette Morin, M.ED., recently gave a multi-media program on ancient Egyptian civilization at the North Haven Memorial Library. Morin’s program included storytelling, examination of a museum exhibition of Egyptian artifact reproductions, and hands-on activities. “I’ve been to Egypt sixteen times and every time I learn something new,” stated Morin. “I’ve been to the museums and toured ancient Egyptian ruins, walked inside pyramids and took a trip down the Nile River.”
“I believe that it’s important to study cultures, places, and civilizations because it helps us to learn about other countries and customs in our world,” he added. Morin has been doing this for 26 years. She brings her programs “Having Fun with Pyramids and Pharaohs”
and “Having Fun with Fossils and Dinosaurs” to schools and assemblies, cub scouts, and assisted living lecture series. She explained that this unique educational museum program provides an integrated, dynamic ap-

lowed Lt. Bradford and JeanLuc inside the cabin, where they found Ebenezer Stiles and his dog Pogo watching a catatonic Colonel Parker sitting in a rocking chair holding Charity’s doll. The colonel looked so pitiful sitting in the rocking chair. Charity walked over to him, and he stared at her for some time before calling her Elizabeth several times. Then he leaned back in the chair, closed his eyes, and was silent. In Charity’s opinion, the colonel was a broken man with the memory of a dead woman on his mind. “He calls out her name over and over again while clutching that doll in his hand. He is very passive and does not make any trouble,” said Mr. Stiles. “Pogo has become quite fond of the colonel and stays by his side.” “Charity, you need to remain at the cabin with Mr. Stiles, and do not go anywhere until we return,” replied a stern Lt. Bradford. Then he, Louise, Alexander, and Jean-Luc gathered
some shovels, lanterns, and an old, crumbled parchment of paper and left the cabin to make their way to the cave at Indian Lookout. After they were gone, Mr. Stiles offered Charity food and drink, which she accepted most graciously. While the colonel was sleeping, Mr. Stiles and Charity sat at a large wooden table in the center of the two-room cabin and enjoyed a delicious meal. During the meal, Mr. Stiles told Charity that he became involved with the others and their search for the treasure after he had witnessed the brutal attack of Colonel Parker by two unidentified strangers. “The colonel must have really loved Elizabeth Higgins as her death has nearly destroyed him,” said Mr. Stiles. “I found a map in his coat pocket, and I gave it to Alexander Caruthers as he and his wife were kind enough to lend assistance with the colonel. If Pogo and I hadn’t come along when we did, those strangers would have killed Colonel Parker.”

“There has been much talk and rumors for years about a hidden treasure that was stolen from Europe’s monarchs and buried somewhere in this territory,” Mr. Stiles continued. “I would have never suspected that it was right here in this small agricultural town of North Haven. And three men mysteriously disappeared while in search of the treasure. Perhaps after today, the treasure will be found, the colonel will be safe, and the past can finally be done with.” Charity looked at Mr. Stile’s kind face and smiled. She asked him if it was ever possible to be rid of the past, for she believed it always returned to haunt us with our past sins and indiscretions. Mr. Stiles agreed with her. Mrs. Kensington was pacing the library at Kensington Hall while thinking about the death of her friend Dr. Greenville. Her solitude was interrupted by Simon

Blackwell entering from the secret passage. Mrs. Kensington was not pleased to see him, but he was happy to see her. He revealed he had finally found the location of the treasure and he was on his way to claim it. Then he told her that he was planning to leave town and go somewhere far away to indulge in his newly found fortune. Then he insolently thanked her for her hospitality and expressed how sorry he was that he had not been able to be her son-inlaw. “My dear lady, I will now leave you forever. I do regret Charlotte’s untimely demise deprived you and me the opportunity of becoming family. My beloved Charlotte shall always remain in my heart until the day I die,” said Simon. “You have no right to speak my daughter’s good name. Had my Charlotte lived, I would have never allowed you two to marry. You are a deadly disease on all humanity. Be gone from my sight and never return,” shrieked an enraged Mrs. Kensington. Before he took his final leave, Simon helped himself to a glass of sherry he slipped slowly, and then he made a comment that lowered Mrs. Kensington into shock. He told her that he knew who killed her beloved friend Dr. Greenville. “I witnessed the entire crime. Do you want to know who it was?”
“Yes, who was it?” demanded Mrs. Kensington. “It was your trusted housekeeper Lydia Johnson who killed Dr. Greenville with the letter opener bearing your initials PK. I guess Miss Charity Chastine and the others were correct to fear Lydia, and so should you.” To be continued . . . Paul Colella is a published author and North Haven resident.

took the South Central Regional Police Test and North Haven was the first town to offer him a job. He attended the police academy in Meriden and, six months later, began his work at the North Haven Police Department. “From the first day on the job, I felt a part of the department,” Compare recalled. “I remember one night when I was on field training and it was the night of the policeman’s ball, Officer Billy Joslyn, my mentor, and I were sent up to Hartford Turnpike to check on a horse in the road. Billy lassoed the horse while I drove the police car.” “That is one memory that has remained with me all these years,” he added. Compare will always remember North Haven. “Within the first year of working at the department, I moved to North Haven and have lived here until a year ago when I moved to Hamden. This town is a very tight community with interesting and caring people who are always ready to open their pockets for a worthy cause to help those in need,” he said. “I’ve seen such generosity when my fellow officers and I had our fundraisers especially during the holidays.” Compare has worked as a bike patrol officer and in the traffic division as an accident re-constructionist. He was president of the Police Union Local 3087 for over seven years, a commissioner on the Board of Community Services, vice-president of State Council #15, involved in various fundraisers such as TipA-Cop for Special Olympics, the Holiday Food Drive with Community Services and Operation Blue Christmas for the troops serving in Afghanistan. “I’ve enjoyed my work and the fundraisers.

Special focus is given to such items as jewelry, clothing, wigs and the process of mummification. “This fast-paced, lively program has opportunities for student participation, like modeling jewelry,” added Morin. “The presentation augments current school curricula while specifically focusing on areas of particular interest to the students.”
A young participant in Paulette Morin’s Egypt program at North Haven’s Memorial Library.
During the PowerPoint presentation, those in attendance were able to view several pictures of ancient pharaohs, pyramids, Egyptian gods and goddesses, jewelry, clothing and mummies. Morin gave a brief description of each item and included stories and myths about certain ones. Also, there were three tables displaying many replicas of Egyptian artifacts that the children seemed interesting to look at. “The Egyptians were very resourceful and creative. The wealthy Egyptians wore many pieces of jewelry and the dead pharaohs were buried with many pieces on their mummified bodies and in their tombs,” Morin said. “They placed signs and symbols in their jewelry because they believed that these signs and symbols would bring magical power and protection to those wearing the jewelry. Both men and women, especially those of nobility, were always well-dressed in linen clothes with an abundant amount of jewelry and heavy make-up, including eye-liner around and under their eyes to block out the sun
just like baseball and football players do.” Morin caught the attention of her audience by engaging everyone with handson activities, asking questions and telling stories. She also gave a short geography lesson on the location and climate of Egypt.
At the end of the presentation, Morin played Egyptian music and taught her audience an ancient Egyptian dance, which her audience quickly learned. Many in attendance left with a better understanding and appreciation for Egypt, its history and culture.
“Paulette Morin gave a wonderful and educational program. My children and I learned a lot about the Egyptians,” stated Maryann Hickey, a North Haven resident and attendee. “The collec-

CitizenOpinion Letters to the Editor
To the editor: Watching the July 14 Board of Selectmen meeting, I was struck by the impassioned exchange between the First Selectman and a town taxpayer regarding mailboxes during the winter season, and I wanted to share my story. I sent an email to Public Works Director Lynne Sadosky on Jan. 18, informing her that my mailbox had gotten trashed by a snowplow and asking if the town would replace it. I was told that my name would go on a list sent to the public works garage and when they got a chance they would look at it and determine what needed to be replaced. Of course, they were currently pretty busy plowing and sanding as we were having one of our worst winters ever. Understandable!
I shoveled out all the packed snow so the mailman could reach the mailbox, tied a rope around the mailbox door in an attempt to prevent my mail from getting wet and waited for the replacement to appear. When the winter snow turned to the spring floods, I decided perhaps it was time to remind someone that I was still waiting for that replacement. On March 25, I sent a follow-up email to Lynne and shortly after a new mailbox appeared to replace the damaged one. The First Selectman indicated that both town hall and public works received “hundreds of calls” from people in a similar situation. And, although I appreciate all his efforts to come to the aid of townspeople “under duress” because of their mail delivery, I have a feeling if I hadn’t pursued it I would still be waiting for that replacement. I, for one, can’t imag-
ine why I would be at the bottom of the list, can you? Pat Heltke North Haven

Cyberbullying policies By Kyle Swartz A new state law which took effect on July 1 sensibly expands Connecticut’s cyberbullying policies. Necessitated by computer age culture, guidelines which govern harassment across cellular and Internet networks represent prudent appraisal of where today’s students can face intimidation. Online misconduct causes real world pain. Inspiration for legislators partly comes from Phoebe Prince, a Massachusetts teen who hanged herself last year after peer abuse, which included malicious text messages and mockery on web pages. With bipartisan support and Governor Dannel P. Malloy’s signature, the 2011 enactment improves language in a 2002 bullying law to incorporate how contemporary technology has altered social interactions. Today’s students have always known life as interwoven with the World Wide Web. For youths, communication through texts, email, instant messages and social networks have become customary. Thus, regulations which encourage appropriate behavior across modern mediums are forward-thinking and pragmatic. One feature notably absent from Connecticut’s 2002 legislation is unequivocal definition of cyberbullying, especially for acts which occur off school grounds. Such has been emended in 2011. Wording legalized on July 1 suitably holds education districts accountable for any cyberbullying which infringes on victims’ student rights, induces hostile scholastic environments or substantially disrupts learning processes or classroom operation. Moreover, by Jan. 1, 2012, every Board of Education must produce a safe school climate plan which specifies how bullying is addressed. Also mandatory now is designation of safe education climate specialists who review reports of aggression and help decide proper response. Additional personnel analysis, plus unambiguously worded protocol, will allow for countermeasure systems which better deter bullying in both physical and digital domains. One of the new law’s most constructive considerations See Cyberbullying, page 18

An Ounce of Prevention
Food safety for summer picnics
By State Representative David Yaccarino
It’s a disheartening new day in Connecticut. July 1st has come and our taxes have gone up. The state sales tax has risen to 6.35 percent and many items we used to pay zero tax on have had their exemptions taken away — clothing and shoes that cost less than $50 and non-prescription medications to name a few. But, as harmful Yaccarino as these tax hikes are, the recent power grab granted to Governor Malloy by the legislature’s majority is far worse. Late at night on June 30th — the deadline for a balanced state budget — the majority Democratic Party voted to give almost unlimited power to the Governor to make revisions to an under-funded and unbalanced budget that passed without a single Republican vote. That failed budget hinged on state workers giving back $1.6 billion in concessions which weren’t obtained. I said at the time that the legislature needed a backup plan, and to prepare a comprehensive budget that all parties could agree to. Instead, July 1st came with the highest tax increase in state history and the promise of even more pain as the Governor now decides which state offices and programs stay open and which employees keep their job. The elected members of the state legislature are responsible for finalizing and approving a state budget. By ceding this authority to the Governor this legislature has abdicated their authority — and with it the will of the people who elected us — and its

ability to make the proper decisions to move our state out of the massive hole we find ourselves in and towards fiscal prosperity. Our government was firmly established with three co-equal branches to make sure no single group or individual had more power or influence over the people. We must avoid making the mistakes our Founding Fathers warned us about. Instead of taking the easy way out and allowing the Governor to pick “winners and losers,” the state legislature needs to go back to doing their jobs, return to session and work out the problems we were elected to fix. If we have to sit down and go through the budget, line-by-line, then we should do just that. Months ago, an alternative budget was presented by the Republican minority that balanced the budget, didn’t increase taxes and preserved essential state and town services. Instead of using those ideas — or even using them as a springboard for discussion — the Governor and the Democrat majority party went on their own and passed an impossible budget that relied on empty promises and failed concessions. The question we need to answer going forward is how to get back to fiscal responsibility? I believe we must cut out-of-control spending, eliminate overlapping state agencies, reduce overhead, become more business-friendly, sell off unused or underutilized state assets and reduce redundancies in the state workforce. We all must work together for the common good of Connecticut, regardless of personal party or politics. Good
point, you have taken too much of a risk, or made someone feel uncomfortable. Or maybe the other person took what you said “out of context”? Secondly, there are many examples of boundaries. There are boundaries that still affect “our generation,” the baby boomers (Vietnam era), and what Spike Lee and others have labeled as the “X generation,” before, during and after the World Wars. People from all different ethnic, religious and many different cultures were scattered all over our nation, as well as the world. Immigration and emigration took place here in America, the “melting pot” we have been accustomed to, being declared in articles, our Constitution, and our Declaration of Independence.
See Power, page 17 Hopefully, one day there will be more acceptance as people of all religious backgrounds come to believe we all cherish one higher power. Maybe, one day, the serenity prayer, a simple prayer, will be practiced more by all. To the innocent people being held in tyranny, their own children being killed, they say, “Make friends with your enemies, one day they may be your ally.” Maybe the Obama administration might believe that fallacy. The new generation followed the elders. I firmly believe in peace through strength. It doesn’t mean our nation’s leader has to practice it, or any other socialist behaviors he holds true. Thomas M. Carroll, Jr. New Haven
By Kristen Amodio, QVHD Sanitarian 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 See Food, page 17

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 bring-
ing 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).

Long-time American Legion coach leads team through another season
Craig M. Hillo Memorial Sports Scholarship Fund
By Michael Torelli The North Haven Citizen American Legion Post 76’s youth summer baseball team finished the 2011 summer league with an even record of 12-12. “There were critical turnovers in critical situations,” said head coach Charles Flanagan. Pitching and defense was good this year, he added, but North Haven’s offense was marginal, he felt. Post 76 hosts a high school team which plays in a summer league comprised of other American Legion-hosted squads. Players are drawn from North Haven and nearby communities. For 14 years, Flanagan has led the team. He has 30 years of coaching baseball under his belt. Having coached in Orange, Hamden and for the Amateur Athletic Union travel teams, Flanagan has had a lot of experience both on and off the field. His reason for returning to coach Post 76 is because he thinks it’s the top baseball around. The 16 to 19 age group is the “best caliper of baseball,” he said. Flanagan played baseball during high school and college. At Union College, located in Schenectady, NY, he was a pitcher and first baseman. He also set a record for playing in the most games in four years. North Haven’s 2011 outcome was similar to 2010. “We didn’t improve the way I thought we would,” Flanagan said. Last year, the team had a record of 13 winds and 11 losses. Already, Flanagan has started to make some changes

Flanagan will spend more time as a hitting instructor, since he feels his team needs to improve their swings, which he considers to be their Achilles’ heel. He feels that if a player is going to get better, then they must keep playing and keep swinging, for that’s the way to improve. During the offseason is when significant changes can be made by the players. “The name of the game is repetition,” he said. As a team that played 30 games in roughly 35 days, fatigue is a concern. There are no off nights for players and coaches. “You let your guard down, you’re going to get beat,” Flanagan stated. With games ending in 2-1 against Hamden, or 1-0 and 3-2 against Shelton, little mistakes cost = North Haven games. Assistant coach Junior Nieves has two boys on the team, both pitchers. Having been the assistant coach for the past two years, Flana-
gan enjoys having him to help out. “These kids sacrificed a lot of time,” Flanagan said. Playing baseball year round is taxing, but he said a lot of the kids can be college material. American Legion Post 76 members play a part in the team, as well. Post 76 Commander Dan Riccio is the manager of the team. Veterans show up to games to offer their support. “The guys at the post are a tremendous support group,” Flanagan stated. The team and veterans have a dinner at the post at the end of the year, which gives the team a great experience, as well as a little history on the veterans. “Sometimes you’re a parent for these kids,” Flanagan said. He knows his team works hard during both the on and off season, and likes to remind them that if they can put that much effort into baseball, then they can do the same for anything else in their lives, such as school.
