Anthem Blue Cross to leave North Haven By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield will move its Connecticut headquarters from North Haven to Wallingford, company officials said Sept. 14. Anthem has been utilizing space at 370 Bassett Road, a 104-acre property the company sold to Quinnipiac University in 2007. Upon purchase, the college leased campus buildings 2, 3 and 4 back to Anthem through September 2012. According to a company press release, Anthem recently signed a 10-year lease with property landlord Workstage-Connecticut, LLC for 217,764 square feet of space in a 300,000-square-foot Wallingford office building, Campus at Greenhill, at 108 Leigus Road. Anthem will begin a two-phase relocation plan. The first phase will occur during September 2011 – the second, September 2012. “Although we would have loved for Anthem to have stayed in North Haven, we are

pleased that they are staying in the region and will continue to play an important role in the North Haven community,” said First Selectman Michael Freda Tuesday in a statement. “They have been integrated into the fabric of North Haven and we hope to continue that relationship.” Company spokesperson Sarah Yeager said 1,458 Anthem employees currently work at 370 Bassett Road. Most will transfer to Wallingford, she added, while some may work from home. “Anthem has been proud to serve the residents of Connecticut for more than 74 years, and we consider ourselves a vital part of the state’s landscape,” said Anthem Connecticut president David R. Fusco in a press release. “This new facility represents our continuing commitment to, and investment in, Connecticut’s business community. We will continue to provide our members with quality health care services and be the trusted choice for See Anthem, page 4

Pamphlet details what BOE wants in a new superintendent By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Citizen photo by Mark Englehart

The 2010 North Haven Fair was held this past weekend, and included prizes . For more photos see pages 20 and 21.

In searching for the town’s next superintendent, North Haven’s Board of Education helped produce a four-page application pamphlet detailing qualifications and job expectations. Scrawled across the front page is “An invitation to apply for the position of Superintendent of Schools.” Within, North Haven’s BOE, along with Cooperative Educational Services Executive Search Team consultants James Ritchie and Tom Jokubaitis, expand upon the position. Under “announcement of

vacancy,” the pamphlet states its intention – “The North Haven Board of Education invites outstanding educational leaders to apply for the position of superintendent of schools. The successful candidate will work collaboratively with the Board of Education to develop a positive learning climate in the schools and within the community, and establish a shared vision for the district to benefit North Haven students and the North Haven education system.” According to the pamphlet, the superintendent po-

Show & Sell 2010

The Town of North Haven, along with the North Haven Economic Development Commission and the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce, is hosting another business and community exposition, “Show & Sell 2010.” Past “Show & Sell” events in 2004, 2006 and 2007 were huge successes, with almost 150 businesses and community groups participating and about 800 business people and consumers attending. Many exhibitors conducted demonstrations, held raffles, passed out free samples and

information about their business or group and also offered items for sale. The “Show & Sell” events were great opportunities for companies and non-profit groups to showcase their products, services and efforts. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 23, from 10 to 3 p.m., at the North Haven High School, 221 Elm St., North Haven. With free table space for merchants and free admission, this should be another enjoyable and profitable for all. Additionally, to help fund the event, we are also seeking sponsors. Companies may

serve as Premium Sponsors for $1,000 or Event Sponsors for $400. Appropriate advertising and premium exhibition space will be provided for sponsors. If a business cannot be a sponsor this year, we encourage owners, managers and staff to join us with a free exhibition table (table and chairs will be provided), or simply, attend the event and support other local businesses.

North Haven’s police department recently received an item off their wish list – a dog unit. “This has been a project we’ve been pursuing for a number of years,” said Deputy Chief Thomas McLoughlin. “I’ve wanted a police dog since 1989, when I was lieutenant.” “This finally came to fruition through the combined efforts of the Chief of Police, the Police Commission and town officials,” he added. Dubbed Zeus by his department handler, North Haven’s first-ever crime-fighting canine is a 19-month-old German Shepherd. His arrival is a relief to McLoughlin. “We were always calling state police or neighboring departments for police animals for a variety of reasons,” he said. Hamden, especially, had numerous law enforcement dogs, which North Haven had been borrowing. “We worked

Anthem Continued from page 1 Connecticut’s residents.” North Haven Town Assessor Gary Johns said Anthem is paying $829,601 in total taxes this year for their 370 Bassett Road sites, including municipal charges for personal property and vehicles. Although the town is facing a revenue loss, the effect will not be immediate, and will be lessened by state

monies, according to Johns. “Because everything is based on Oct. 1, they will still be on our Grand List next year, regardless of when they move,” Johns said Tuesday. “They will not move out before Oct. 1, 2010, which is in two weeks. We will retain that income for the next fiscal year.” “If they move out before Oct. 1, 2011, then we would see tax loss in the years after that,” he added. Anthem’s property taxes

Said Mark Thompson, Quinnipiac University senior vice president for academic and student affairs, in a statement, “Anthem’s move will enable Quinnipiac to move forward more expeditiously with its plans to open a medical school and relocate its other graduate programs to the North Haven Campus.” As a college, Quinnipiac University is not required by federal law to pay municipal taxes. However, Connecticut’s Payments in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) program provides a level of funds to towns containing institutions not subject to town taxes. “PILOT’s goal is to pay 77 percent of actual value,” Johns said. “But that is not normally reached.”

of police canines other departments were utilizing,” he continued. “We settled on the same vendor Hamden uses. Hamden had good luck with them since the inception of the town’s police dog program a few years back.” Originally bred in the Czech Republic, and routed to America via a German business, Zeus was provided to town by Renbar Kennels of New Milford, which specializes in police dogs. North Haven police officer Jim Brennan was chosen as Zeus’ handler. “Jim has been with us for four years,” McLoughlin said. “He has personal experience with canines. Jim was selected by the Chief.” Zeus and Brennan began an eight-week training course at Renbar Kennels on Sept. 7, which will culminate on Nov. 5. “The dog will be crosstrained in tracking and narcotics detection,” McLoughlin said. “He will help locate missing persons, whether they are seniors or young kids. He will also be locating and apprehending persons involved in criminal activity.” Impeding movements of elicit drugs in town will be a

focus. “We’re going to be looking to step up our narcotics enforcement and narcotics detection,” McLoughlin said. “That is our primary outlook for what the duties of the dog would be.” Upon graduation, Zeus and Brennan will become operational. “They will be assigned predominantly to the evening shift,” McLoughlin said, “but there will be allowances made to them to accommodate town and the police department for special events and special details.” Zeus will reside permanently with Brennan. “That’s typical protocol, the dog living with the officer,” McLoughlin said. “Any costs – food, bills, etc. – we will bear.” McLoughlin estimated a $12,000 price tag for Zeus in 2010 – $6,500 for purchase, $4,500 for training and an additional $1,000 for equipment. Town officials budgeted $10,000 for costs. McLoughlin said the extra $2,000 will be picked up by the department. North Haven’s funding could be offset. “This was built into our capital financing with the understanding that the dog would essentially pay for itself through asset forfeitures,” McLoughlin said. “Hopefully we will be able to pay the town back.” Should Zeus prove successful, McLoughlin said he

would relish seeing additional dogs brought into the town’s police department. “This is a great start for us,” he said. “Obviously, we have to look at it down the road, evaluate it and make sure it’s worth continuing. If things need to be tweaked, we’ll tweak it.” “This is just the beginning,” he added. “Somewhere down the road, maybe we will get a second dog.” “Canine units are a proven program,” he continued. “We’re committed to making sure this program is going to work.” McLoughlin had high praise for Zeus. “This dog has a very good disposition,” he said. “He’s very obedient. He

Haven. “I’m really looking forward to this,” he said. “Everything I hear from the community has been supportive. Everybody seems to be behind the program.” “Zeus has great drive,” he added. “He seems like he’s going to be a good fit for North Haven.”

The North Haven Garden Club works on a number of beautification projects in town. Plantings were done at the Montowese Park sign by Gerri Giordano with soil donated by Victor Palma of Public Works. The geraniums were from Neal Peckham and the garden group at North Haven Middle School. Peckham also filled and maintained the planter boxes at the United States Post Office on Washington Avenue. If anyone is interested in joining the North Haven Garden Club, please call membership chair Kathy Miranda at (203) 484-2647.

“Connections between the classroom and life experiences result from interdisciplinary instruction.” “Education requires a safe and orderly environment.” “There is a common core of knowledge that all students must possess to succeed.” “Learning goals for students are meaningful and es-

sential for success.” “Educators have a responsibility to keep abreast of current educational research, and to integrate new learnings into instruction.” Focus groups held in July by North Haven’s BOE, Ritchie and Jokubaitis helped shape the pamphlet’s language. These groups were comprised of teachers, other educational staff, parents, students, local officials, and

other members of the community. North Haven’s superintendent position was vacated when Sara-Jane Querfeld retired last year to pursue an administrative position in her hometown of North Branford. In the meantime, assistant superintendent Patricia Brozek is handling Querfeld’s duties. Brozek lacks superintendent certification.

Campus at Greenhill is at the heart of central Connecticut’s 1-91 corridor in Wallingford, according to an Anthem press release, just six miles from Anthem’s existing North Haven address. “We are pleased that Anthem chose to remain within this region and to become a part of Wallingford’s business community,” said Wallingford’s mayor William W. Dickinson, Jr. in a statement. “Our town, our region and the company’s own employees benefit by this decision and it provides for substantial use of one of our largest vacant office buildings. We look forward to Anthem doing business in our community.” Designed originally as a

Letters to the Editor


admitted that he actually wrote the complaint that was full of questionable remarks. Neither Amato nor Gambardella has ever met my daughter. Their attack on her and my family was politically motivated, based on discontent aimed at my husband, John Lambert and me. At the September meeting of the Board of Selectmen, Amato once again showed himself and his agenda for what it is. When speaking about the complaint that disrupted the lives of my entire family, he said, “It was just a complaint” — shrugging as though what he had done was nothing.

Disrupted family

To the editor: Gary Amato, a member of the North Haven Democratic Town Committee, brought a complaint against my daughter to the State Elections Enforcement Commission for voter fraud that has since been dismissed by that Commission and in the process wasted the state’s money on investigation — money our bankrupt state can ill afford. The Election Commission found that my daughter is a bona fide resident of North Haven and remains so even to this day. North Haven is her home, and it has been my family’s home since the 1930s. We live in a house that has been in my family for 62 years. William Gambardella, another member of the North Haven Democratic Town Committee, the former town treasurer and Janet McCarty’s campaign chairman, has

Unanswered questions To the editor: A request was sent recently to our State Rep. Steve

Fontana from a local blog, The North Haven Way, to respond to a set of emailed questions sent in by its readers. The questions spanned both state and local issues. It was disappointing to find out that Fontana is reportedly not going to respond to the submitted questions. Frankly, I am surprised as there doesn’t seem to be a forum where townspeople can have a question and answer period with our elected representative. It certainly cannot be done at a Board of Selectman meeting, unless done after the meeting out of earshot of the whole assembly. The debates, although skimming the surface of general issues with pre-supplied questions, does not afford the public the give and take needed to pinpoint where exactly this candidate stands on the issues.

By Paul Colella Special to the North Haven Citizen Winston Churchill famously said: “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” For lifelong resident and judge of probate Michael Brandt, giving to his family, friends and community has been a lifelong commitment. “I have lived in North Haven all my life and my family has deep roots in this wonderful town,” stated Brandt. “The people of North Haven have had a great impact on me and my family, and I am honored and pleased to volunteer in the community and to serve as their judge of probate. I enjoy helping people.” Brandt has been judge of probate since January 2003, an active judge in New Haven Regional Children’s Probate Court, an adjunct professor at the University of New Haven, a law clerk to an Appellate Court Judge, a research clerk for Superior Court, and an associate editor of Connecticut Probate School of Law. He went through the North Haven

school system, graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in psychology, and earned a law degree from Quinnipiac University School of Law. “I was well prepared for college after graduating from North Haven High School. Education, hard work, ethics, good morals, family life and volunteering were always practiced and emphasized by my parents Jack and Kathy Brandt,” he added. “My mother Kathy was a first grade teacher at Ridge Road School for 20 years.” Brandt further explained that he met his wife Kristen while attending law school, and they have three children – Matthew, Kylie and Michael. He stays active helping out in the community by teaching CCD to eighth graders at Saint Frances Cabrini Church, where he is also a Eucharistic minister. He coaches soccer, baseball and basketball, was a former board member and coach for the Max Sinoway Baseball League, and is team captain of Hamden/North Haven Re-

Student Athlete Safety: Concussions By State Senator Len Fasano This past May, we passed le gislation here in Connecticut that raises awareness about the danger of concussions in student athletes. As Fasano the parent of a high school football player and as a former Yale football player, I know firsthand the seriousness of injuries sustained to student athletes involved in contact sports. Although I did not support the initial draft of the legislation, I worked with fellow legislators to find a compromise everyone could agree on. The result was SB 456, An Act Concerning Student Athletes and Concussions, which passed unanimously and requires anyone who has a

Letters Continued from page 14 Dave Yaccarino, Fontana’s opponent, was given a set of questions from the blog and responded quickly. He has also been holding Q&A sessions at the local McDonald’s. Apparently, he is willing to let the electorate know where he stands on the issues, and is making himself available for that purpose. Fontana, however, doesn’t seem to see the necessity of getting out from under the cloak of protection 14 years in office, and little opposition, has afforded him. This is a year of great unrest with the voting population. Incumbents are facing an angry electorate who feel that the people whom they have put in office do not listen to them. For whatever reason, Fontana has chosen to dismiss answering questions about the reasonable concerns of citizens of North Haven. In prior years, this might have gone unnoticed.

coaching permit issued by the State Board of Education and who coaches intramural or interscholastic athletics to be periodically trained in how to recognize and respond to head injuries and concussions. It also requires that coaches take a student athlete out of any game or practice if the athlete shows signs of having suffered a concussion. The coach must keep the athlete out of any game or practice until the athlete has received written clearance to return from a licensed medical professional. Almost any driven student athlete will want to play through the pain, and coaches might be tempted to let them do that, trusting the young persons’ judgment, but their safety is at risk. Concussions can result in long term damage, and the See Safety, page 27

Dedication and leadership To the editor: State Representative Steve Fontana has shown his dedication and leadership over the last 14 years that he has represented us in the Connecticut General Assembly. Fontana listens to residents’ concerns, solves individual problems for people and businesses and is in the forefront in setting the public policy initiatives in the General Assembly that have improved the quality of life for us and our families. Let’s look at Fontana’s record of public service as our State Representative: Jobs: Fontana has promoted small business loans and tax credits. This is a key area for economic development during this recession. Fontana has been a leader in

Health care: Fontana, as chairman of the Insurance and Real Estate Committee, has fought to help working families faced with loss of employment keep their health insurance coverage and has secured passage of legislation to allow North Haven and other municipalities to buy prescription drugs for their employees through the state plan. Fontana has a record of fighting to control health care costs and the more efficient delivery of health services in order to help our residents and businesses. Energy costs: Fontana has used his position on the Environment Committee to support legislation for solar energy development, geothermal alternatives and energy conservation programs that focus on reducing ener-

true spirit and is devoted to his family, friends and community. I am privileged to know Mike personally and professionally,” said First Selectman Michael Freda. “His deep compassion and extreme integrity, aligned with true devotion to help and work with all of North Haven’s citizens, makes him a unique individual who acts from the heart.” It is a rare moment when Brandt is not on the scene in North Haven. When he is not working or volunteering, he enjoys spending time with his family and their dog Chili. He is very family-oriented and believes that family is very special. For Brandt, everyone he meets, works with, volunteers with, coaches and teaches are like family. “Mike is always eager to help everyone. What you see is what you get,” stated Donna Spose, a longtime friend. “I remember when my son Eric’s soccer team went out of the country, Mike and his office were very helpful in helping my son and his teammates to get their passports.” Brandt believes that in his profession it is vital to treat

everyone with respect and have patience. He also is a good listener and believes that more is accomplished productively when people listen and then act. “Michael is an excellent listener and very attentive to others and their needs. In our neighborhood, there were three families — the DelVecchios, the Mitchells, and the Brandts – and we all had three boys,” recalled Ellie Mitchell, a friend and neighbor. “Everyone got along, and Michael’s kindness, caring and wonderful smile always brightened the neighborhood even on a rainy day. He handles people very well and is extremely fit for his profession.” “My husband is always willing to help by going the extra mile, and he never says no to anyone,” added Kristen Brandt. “He loves his job, his family and friends, and his community, making him not just the nicest guy but the nicest person who practices what he preaches.” See next week’s North Haven Citizen for an informal interview with Michael Albis, also a candidate for probate judge.

gy consumption and costs which are important to our residents and essential to business and retention and development. Transparency in government: Fontana has been in the forefront in fighting to have government deliver services in a more efficient and cost effective manner. The institution of business practices, results based performance for programs and agencies and the elimination of bureaucratic waste are the hallmark in the delivery of services our taxpaying residents and businesses.

If Jones wishes to end Muslim extremism, then he should do so by building bridges of peace, love and brotherhood with Muslims. I am a 13-year-old Muslim belonging to the U.S. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, who believes that the only way of ending Muslim extremism and terrorism is through campaigns of peace and friendship.

Closer look To the editor: A recent article in support of State Representative Steve Fontana reflects just one side of a coin. It is indeed true that Fontana’s intentions are to be applauded, as I am sure he has always been “an upstanding and generous member of our community who cares about North Haven residents.” Where I would depart with the sentiments of the author is in his conclusions about the outcomes of Fontana’s efforts. Fontana cannot escape the fact that he has been a member of the General Assem-

bly’s majority party that has led Connecticut to the disastrous conditions we face today. Indeed, the author himself explains that Fontana has helped pass the exact legislation that has gotten us to this point of affairs. The legislation that Fontana has helped pass did not “support our schools.” North Haven has seen a drop in the aid we receive from the state and certainly is not on par with that received by other communities. The legislation that Fontana has helped pass did not create jobs – Connecticut has been losing jobs as a direct result of the General Assembly’s efforts to raise taxes, and its businessunfriendly policies and regulations. The legislation that Fontana has helped pass did not “bring energy prices down.” In fact, Connecticut

residents pay some of the highest, if not the highest, energy rates in the U.S., and this is a direct result of the General Assembly’s past energy management and procurement policies. All that being said, what amazes me the most about the author’s comments is that he believes Fontana accomplished all these results in a “fiscally responsible way”! Has the author not been paying attention to the growth of our bloated state government and the related budget deficits we are facing in the next two fiscal years? The author, and other liberals like him, should take a closer look at the other side of the coin to review the results of a person’s efforts, and not rely simply on

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, September 17, 2010

Letters Continued from page 17 Fontana’s good intentions. If North Haven and the state’s current plight is the result of Fontana’s past actions and intentions, I say we cannot afford to re-elect him to office. We direly need change, and I urge all North Haven residents to vote for anyone but Fontana. Removing him from office is the only way we can ensure he can no longer use his good intentions to support additional Democrat majority efforts in Hartford that will result in increased injury for North Haven and the state. Michael P. Maturo North Haven

It would be unfair of me to remain as registrar under those circumstances. The past three months have been an enjoyable experience for me. My fellow

Town Hall employees have made me feel welcome and at ease in my job. I will miss seeing them on a daily basis. My thanks go to many town employees and poll workers that make elections possible. It is because of their hard work and efficiency that elections are successful. Also, I wish to thank Pam Parrella, who appointed me as her deputy in April 2006. I served in that position for a little over four years, until I assumed the registrar position after Pam resigned. Michelle Spader and Laurie Brangi, our deputy registrars, are delightful young ladies who brighten the office with their friendliness. They ably assist us in our duties on voting days and before elections. My special thanks go to Patty Jackson-Marshall, who guided and tutored me in my duties the past three months. Without her assistance, I would not have been able to succeed in my work. Her friendly smile and good nature has made my tenure a pleasant and meaningful experience.

We are please to announce the addition of two wonderful physicians to our practice at 9 Washington Avenue, Dr. Brian Cohen Hamden, Connecticut. Dr. Brian Cohen and Dr. Maria Rhee will be a great addition to the care and support our practice at 9 Washington Avenue already provides.

The D.E.P. is seeking a permit to dump in the North Haven/Hamden Tire Pond, 700,000 cubic yards of carcinogenic industrial waste, from the old Winchester Repeating Arms landfill in Hamden. This is from the neighborhoods they are pretending to clean up, by removing the top four feet of soil around the houses that were built on this landfill. Three sides of the Tire Pond are bordered by water – the Quinnipiac River is along the east side, a tidal waterway is along the north side, and a channel along

most of the west side. This highly contaminated fill will raise the pond to a height of over 40 feet. Then they intend to cap it. This sounds like UpJohn and Pratt & Whitney all over again. But the difference is they are trucking it in on our tax dollars. Included in the hazardous chemicals in this fill are aromatic hydrocarbons which give off a sickeningly sweet chemical odor — 700,000 cubic yards of that, being dumped over a period of five years, should really stink up the town — again! I cannot believe that we are actually paying for the Department of Environmental Protection to create an industrial waste landfill in our town. How dare they use our town as a dumping ground? They are supposed to be protectors of us and our environment. We must all voice our concerns on this matter at the Inland Wetland Commission Meeting.

Elks Soccer Shoot

North Haven field hockey team drops opener By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Despite frequent opportunities on offense, North Haven High School field hockey opened the 2010 varsity season Sept. 14 with a 1-0 loss to Sacred Heart Academy of Hamden. “We need to work on having more focus in the [shoot-

ing] circle, putting the ball past the goalie rather than just trying to jam it past her pads,” said head coach Cori Krajewski after her squad’s defeat, “but that will come from practice.” North Haven took 10 shots on goal and was awarded 12 corners. Sacred Heart registered zero corners, and took only one shot on goal. How-

North Haven lost 1-0 to Sacred Heart on Sept. 14, despite moving the ball on offense with ease. shots are analogous to soccer corner shots. Up to five total defenders may stand within the circle during a corner. All members of the opposing offense must start outside the circle. The ball is placed on a goal line, where it is passed by one member of the offense to another, both still outside the circle. Then all attackers rush in toward the net with the ball.

ever, the Indians’ opponent made their single shot count, sneaking the ball past North Haven’s goalkeeper at the 8:50-minute mark in the game’s second half. “It was the first game,” Krajewski said. “We’re still kind of getting things together. People are playing positions they’re not normally playing.” Play, two 30-minute halves, was at NHHS’s athletic complex, beneath an unrelenting sun. From the opening whistle, North Haven pushed consistently into Sacred Heart territory, with Indian Tatum Seaver leading many home team charges. Sounding regularly, referees’ whistles stopped and started the flow, about twice as much as during a soccer match-up. Infractions warranting brief play stoppage were numerous. Strikers from both teams were awarded penalty shots all over the field, in which they were granted a free swing at the small, hard ball, with all other players positioned at least seven feet away. Given for penalties incurred within the circle – a D-shaped semicircle in front of the goal with a radius of 15 yards, where all shots on net must be taken – corner

The Hamden/North Haven Elks 2010 Soccer Shoot has been scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 26, in collaboration with the Wallingford Elks Lodge Soccer Shoot at Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial Field, East Center Street, Wallingford.

In addition to offering unique and artistic services, she has repeat customers who come from all over Connecticut and even out of state. All customers are important and Barbara takes pride in treating them with respect. She can work with a variety of frames, from very affordable to high end.

Friday, September 17, 2010 — The North Haven Citizen

Hockey Continued from page 25 and mostly-grassy, produced a constantly-bouncing ball, rendering offense difficult in a sport already defensivelyoriented. Sticks clacked constantly, colliding as both teams swiped and swung to gain control of the jumpy ball. North Haven’s Sydney Burke passed the ball to teammate Amara Barbiero before Scared Heart’s goal at the first half ’s 20-minute mark, but the opponent’s defense repelled the attempt. Minutes later, the Indians received their first two corners, but to no avail. Coming in off North Haven’s bench, Kailee Dextradeur then led a surge that was also rebuffed. On the field’s other side, Indian Molly Falkowski proved a difficult defender to navigate past, denying many Sacred Heart incursions. Seaver spearheaded several other North Haven offensive surges, but Sacred Heart’s goalie booted many

shots away from net. The Indians collected four additional corners before the first half ended with the score tied, 0-0. The game’s second half unfolded similarly to the first. Play was predominantly on Sacred Heart’s turf, as North Haven had abundant chances to get on the scoreboard. Seaver again was instrumental in the Indians regularly breaching the opponent’s circle, leading to several scrums before Sacred Heart’s goal, and several more corners. However, the Indians were not able to cash in on offense. “At halftime I told the team they needed to have stronger passes, and come back for the ball more,” Krajewski said. “We came back for the ball a bit more in the second half, but we need to work on passing.” With 18:50 remaining, a North Haven rush resulted in the ball zipping just past the opponents’ goal post, outof-bounds, another opportunity missed. Finally, with 8:55 left, Sa-

cred Heart turned a man-advantage into a score. Courtney Nowicki passed to Sacred Heart teammate Julie Reynolds, who thwacked the ball into North Haven’s goal box for a 1-0 lead. “We just were not marking up within the circle,” Krajewski said of what would turn out to be the game-winner. A minute later, North Haven’s Alex Addesso found herself one-on-one with Sacred Heart’s goalie before net, but the opposing goalie again kicked the ball away. Competition was largely back-and-forth for the remainder of the match-up, before the final whistle blew and Sacred Heart won their season opener. Afterward, Krajewski said her team was still finding itself. “We lost a lot of starting players from last year,” she said. “We’re shuffling around returning players and fitting in new players.” NHHS varsity field hockey’s upcoming schedule includes Mercy on Sept. 20 at home.

Obituaries Frank Proto Frank Proto, 80, of Northford, died Sept. 9, 2010, at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He was the husband of Rose Esposito Proto. Born in New Haven, Feb. 3, 1930, he was a son of the late Cosmo and Venderina Aurora Proto. Frank had worked as a plumber for Yale University for nearly 40 years until his retirement and was a proud member of Local #35. Frank was a devoted husband, father and grandfather who enjoyed his annual trips to Florida especially spending much quality time with his two grand-

children. He had served his country faithfully in the U.S. Army. He is survived by his sons, Robert (Robyn) Proto, of East Haven, and Frank (Ann) Proto, of Madison; grandchildren, Robert Proto, Jr. and Nicole Proto; and a brother, John (Geraldine) Proto, of North Haven. A funeral Mass was celebrated Sept. 13 at St. Barnabas Church. Burial was private. The North Haven Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements. Memorial donations may be made to Yale Pediatrics, 20 York St., New Haven, CT 06510.
