Hurricane Irene delays school, leaves many without power By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Hurricane Irene’s blustery path through North Haven left people without electricity, downed trees and power lines across town and delayed public school’s opening day. As of Aug. 30, 21 percent of North Haven residences were still without power, according to First Selectman Michael Freda, who has united electric and municipal workers to tackle local Hurricane-affected areas. “I asked the United Illuminating (UI) electric company to give us a crew in addition to other their crews,” he said. “I teamed that crew up with our public works department, who has taken the crew around town to work on top

Reader’s Poll Last week’s poll question: What has been the result of Michael Freda’s first term as First Selectman? By Aug. 30, of 38 respondents, 61 percent voted “Overall strong leadership amidst recessionary times,” zero percent voted “A step backward from the previous, Democrat administration,” 21 percent voted “Much better municipal relationships with the business community and public” and 18 percent voted “Too little economic development, and raised taxes.” Poll question for this week: How were you affected by Hurricane Irene?

Town duo behind local Special Olympics success By Paul Colella The North Haven Citizen Continued success of North Haven’s yearlong Special Olympic programs has resulted from local teamwork. “We offer a year-round program focusing on sports and training and competition,” stated Eileen Pettit, North Haven’s assistant recreation di-

rector. “Our Special Olympics offers a variety of programs and we have certainly grown through the years.” When people work together for common good, anything is possible, with wonderful results and personal satisfaction.

When youths return to classrooms across North Haven, they will benefit from changes and expanded programs implemented in local public schools. At North Haven High School (NHHS), Principal Dr. Russell Dallai and his staff have already worked to

prepare incoming freshman, new additions to a student body which totals just under 1,200. “We had our new student orientation on Aug. 23,” Dallai said. “That went great. We got to meet all our new students and their families. We had an assembly in the theater in which we

26th). Residents are asked not to place large branches, tree stumps or debris generated by Hurricane Irene in the roadway itself – this only adds to the difficultly of passage for emergency response vehicles and is not permitted. Instead, please place your debris at the curb line and off of the town roadways. “The Town of North Haven thanks its residents in advance for their patience as we address down power lines and trees which are tangled in power lines with the United Illuminating Company,” Freda stated Aug. 29. “Restoring power and making roadways clear for emergency vehicle passage is our first priority and we thank you all for understanding this.” “Residents are asked to address as much of the Hurricane Irene debris collection and disposal themselves before relying on the town’s Department of Public Works and please, where you can, assist your neighbors especially those who are senior citizens and/or who are in

On Aug. 24, police arrested Joseph DiBenedetto, 25, of 15 Donna Drive, New Haven in connection with a March burglary. DiBenedetoo was recognized by a North Haven detective as a passenger traveling along Middletown Avenue. DiBenedetto was charged with Burglary third-degree, Larceny third-degree, Criminal Mischief third-degree and Conspiracy to commit burglary. In checking further, two warrants for failure to appear in court were

also served on Dibenedetto, as well as a narcotics charge from New Haven. He was held on a $10,000 bond and was arraigned on Aug. 24. The burglary occurred in March when DiBenedetto is alleged to have broken into a fenced and locked area that is used by a snow clearing parking lot contractor along Universal Drive. Missing from this area were four “walk behind� snow blowers and two salt spreaders. None of the equipment was recovered. James Merrithew is detective captain of the North Haven Police Department.

Patriots and Scoundrels Book 2, Part 42 By Paul Colella The North Haven Citizen

When Charity, Lt. Bradford, Alexander, and Colonel Parker reached the cabin, Jean-Luc’s foot had been bandaged by Mr. Stiles, and Jean-Luc was resting in a chair. Louise and Mr. Stiles were warming themselves by the fireplace. The lieutenant placed Colonel Parker in the rocking chair where he sat in complete silence. After seeing that they had returned safely with the colonel, Mr. Stiles went outside to bury Pogo. While the lieutenant and the others remained inside, Charity went out to offer Mr. Stiles her aid. A few moments later, the lieutenant joined them and

helped Mr. Stiles dig the grave. While the two men were busy with their task, Charity stared at the lieutenant while trying to figure out in her mind how to deal with his constant change in personality. She then surmised that the tragic deaths of his sister and nephew had left a terrible wound in his heart, leaving him bitter and insensitive. Charity was relieved and exhausted by the time she and the others returned to Singleton Lodge. The servants had prepared a hot meal for them, and Constance greeted them by expressing how happy she was to see them. She embraced her husband while a deceit-

ful Louise looked the other way. Charity could still see Alexander and Louise in the stables engaging in their immoral deed, but she kept her thoughts on the matter to herself. After they had finished eating, Charity excused herself and went to her room. She took off her clothes, put on her night attire, and washed her hair to get rid of the dirt from the cave. While she was drying her hair, Constance came to her room to see her. “My dearest friend, how are you?” said Constance. “My husband has just told me of the awful ordeal that you, he, and the others experienced at the hands of Simon Blackwell. Thank God

all of you survived. Let’s hope that we never see that evil man again.” “Now, with that said and done, Alexander and I are hoping after you receive your inheritance from Grace Collins, you will consider remaining with us,” Constance added. “It is a pleasure to have you here at Singleton Lodge especially after what happened the other night.” Charity thanked Constance for her kind words and told her that she would consider her and Alexander’s generous offer. Then Constance said good-night and left the room. Before going to bed, Charity looked out the window and saw a large cloud of smoke in the distance. Then she saw the ghostly couple moving about outside. She closed her eyes for a few seconds, and when she opened them, the couple was gone. She could take no more of that day and the events that had taken place, so she went to bed, burrowing under her quilt, and she soon fell asleep. The next morning Charity felt very restless, so she asked Constance if she could have the carriage to visit Mrs. Andrews, who always seemed to offer her some solace. Constance wanted to get

away from Singleton Lodge as well, so she accompanied Charity to Andrews’ Tavern. When they arrived at the tavern, they found a group of townspeople gathered outside, talking about a terrible fire that occurred last night in Wallingford. Upon entering the dining room, Mrs. Andrews and Jesse were sitting at a table with Dr. Foote. All three of them had sadness in their eyes. Charity asked them what had happened, and they were silent for a moment. Then Jesse told her that an angry mob descended upon Kensington Hall and set fire to the mansion, resulting in total ruin. Charity gasped from shock and then asked what had become of everyone residing at Kensington Hall. No one had a response to her question. Upon hearing this horrible news, Charity collapsed into a chair and fell into a state of complete silence. Mrs. Andrews brought her a glass of water while Constance held her hand. Charity was very upset and then demanded to know the circumstances that led to the awful occurrence. Dr. Foote revealed that he heard from

John Brennan

This year’s North Haven Fair, scheduled for Sept. 8, 9, 10 and 11, is celebrating its 69th year as a North Haven tradition, featuring agricultural exhibits, crafts, rides, and food and fun for the entire family. Another part of that tradition is the “chowder booth,” which, almost since the inception of the fair, has offered delicious New England clam chowder and other edible delights as part of the fundraising efforts of a local church. Well, after an absence during the past couple of years, this year’s fair will once again feature chowder. NHTV, North Haven Community TV, is thrilled to announce it will be operating the “NHTV Old Fashioned Chowder Booth,” as a fundraiser. The “NHTV Old Fashioned Chowder Booth” will feature traditional New England clam chowder, as well as both cold deli sandwiches and hot eggplant parmesan from Carbone’s Deli on a Lupi-Legna hard roll with Liuzzi mozzarella cheese. Additionally, NHTV has added to the soup menu by offering delicious corn chowder. The chowders will be made with milk from Guida’s Dairy-Home of The Supercow. Other foods available at the chowder booth include hot pretzels, desserts, and hot and cold beverages. So, when you attend this year’s North Haven Fair, make sure to relive a tradition by paying a visit to the “NHTV Old Fashioned Chowder Booth.” For more information, visit NHTV’s website at

Anniversaries and seat belts By V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH

Some dates have more meaning than other dates in our lives. Anniversary dates, such as the day of marriage or the day a child was born or a dear one dies become markers of memories. They can be a time of rejoicing and celebrating, or they can

be a time to reflect and remember. July 11, 1989 was such a date for our family. A phone call brought the news of a head-on-crash between my sister’s car and a tenwheel truck, leaving her comatose and on a respirator. (Twenty-two years later, she is well and raising two children.) To celebrate and rejoice in

Art shows

To the editor: I am a member of North Haven and I enjoy going to art shows in and around North Haven. Unfortunately, I miss a lot of the North Haven exhibits due to the short amount of time during the week when viewing is allowed. I would love to suggest that the art shows be moved to a room in the town library, as many towns allow, so that the hours of available viewing would be more conducive to most people’s schedules.

her life and to reflect and remember, I share this memory with “Ounce of Prevention” readers to bring you a message: Seat belts do save lives. If it were not for the protection afforded her by her seat belt, and the grace of God, she would not be who she is today. Most of us know the data about seat belts. Studies and demonstrations with “crash dummies” have clearly illustrated why seat belts are important. Yet, some people still chose not to wear them. Surveys show the main reason that people choose not to wear them is because they feel seat belts are too restrictive or uncomfortable. Others

cling to the notion that seat belts can actually harm you in an accident. (This can be true if they are worn incorrectly.) For those who remain unconvinced that seat belts are necessary or are too restrictive or uncomfortable, reflect for a moment on these questions: • How restrictive would it be to not be able to walk, talk, feed, bathe, dress or drive yourself ? • How uncomfortable do you think it would be to have to learn to do the daily activities you do now all over again – like brushing your teeth, flushing the toilet, bathing, combing your hair, eating, talking, etc.? • How restrictive would it be to be paralyzed for life? • How uncomfortable would it be to learn how to do your job all over again (if you ever could relearn or do it)? • How uncomfortable would it be to lose your finan-

cial independence? • How unnecessary to miss work, cause pain and anxiety to your family members, generate thousands of dollars in medical bills, and bring your whole life to a standstill (or maybe even an end) just because you didn’t like wearing a seat belt. Don’t let the security of an air bag prevent you from wearing a seat belt. They are designed to use together. Please wear your seat belt. They can make the difference between life and death.

shared information about the school to help familiarize them and put them at ease. It’s a real big transition from middle to high school.” “We held tours of the building so the new freshmen could see the different rooms and departments and get a feel for the school,” he added. “Then we had a social get-together afterward, and we let the kids and their families ask any questions they had.” Objectives for NHHS in 2011 include an even greater focus on data-driven decision-making, where pupils’ performances in highlystructured curriculum are tracked intricately, so that teacher teams can craft detailed improvement plans to assist kids’ future learning. “We will be devoting a lot of time to these data teams, working on behalf of student achievement,” Dallai said. Certain employee teams, or task forces, will focus on seniors whose poor grades potentially could prevent them from collecting diplomas. “Our graduation task force did very well last year,” Dallai said. “We have a good group of teachers, counselors and teachers who worked very closely with seniors who were in danger of not graduating.” Other NHHS adjustments will be in line with Connecticut legislators’ summer passage of better-defined antibullying and cyber-bullying laws, which seek secure school climates devoid of student-to-student intimidation. “This year, we will have a new school climate change initiative,” Dallai said. “Our climate was something we were already proud of. But we got a grant to help us formulate a climate committee to enhance our climate to matchup better with new state regulations.” Utilized as a shelter during Hurricane Irene, NHHS emerged unscathed from last week’s stormy weather. “We

got very lucky,” Dallai said. “We didn’t even lose power here.” Teachers and administrators returned to NHHS the day after Irene struck. “We got in for some last-minute tune ups,” Dallai said. Heightened focus on datadriven decisions, joined with comprehensive curriculum, is also a goal for the 2011-12 scholastic year at North Haven Middle School (NHMS). “This will be the first year where we will input our rewritten curriculum in all four core classes,” said Principal Phillip Piazza. “I’m excited about that.” North Haven’s recent district-wide shift in curriculum and data first began at NHMS two and a half years ago. NHMS had yet to receive results from a 2010 accreditation. “We’re still waiting on that,” Piazza said. “That will help us moving forward.” At Clintonville Elementary School, years of efforts to rebuild a dilapidated and often-flooded playground will culminate in 2011. “The companies and the town employees who are working on the playground have worked together well to make sure that this playground has come together,” said Principal Lauretta Dowling. If not ready for opening day, Clintonville’s playground will be finished soon after. “Right now it’s being graded and seeded,” Dowling said Aug. 29. “All the play equipment is in. We’re still waiting for fencing for the kindergarten area.” Additional changes for Clintonville in 2011 include a new large projection screen for the auditorium, to assist all-building assemblies. Despite harsh weather in recent weeks, Clintonville will be ready for the first day of classes. “We’ve been working all summer and everything is all set up,” Dowling said. “We are doing very well, even with an earthquake a hurricane, we’re in good shape.”

Cerrato is North Haven’s local coordinator and liaison for the town’s recreation department and Special Olympics for the State of Connecticut. Pettit explained that she and Cerrato have known each other for several years. Pettit was Cerrato’s field hockey coach when she was in high school.

State Editorial

Blowin’ in the wind As suggested by today’s editorial headline above, even Bob Dylan’s legendary song lyrics do not provide answers to questions posed by some major weather events, including this weekend’s meteorological assault by Hurricane Irene. Abundant media coverage had states (especially coastline and those nearby) from the Carolinas to Maine focused on storm preparations and all manner of evacuation routes. Depending on one’s geographical center during Irene’s south-north trek, its tentacles touched upon a large swath of territory with greatly differing intensities. Make no mistake: it left indelible imprint on the minds of those directly affected. Thus, for some, Irene brought devastation; for others, a collective sigh - and everything in between those wide-ranging, storm-descriptive benchmarks. New York City took what some considered overly-cautionary actions (shutting down major components of mass transit, including subway system, trains and airports). Connecticut, too, was well prepared and, according to oft-hyped commentary by weather forecasters, was somewhat relieved to learn that that which could have hit as a “Category 1-status” hurricane arrived, instead, as a somewhat weakened, but decidedly potent, tropical storm. One wonders, with trepidation, what the impact of, say, a Category 2, 3 or higher hurricane would be (shutter and shudder). Locally, what had been sturdy trees

(some “as old as the hills”) fell in abundance at Irene’s behest. Sadly, some landed damagingly on roofs and cars. Others took down electric wires and telephone poles with apparent ease. From Enfield to Greenwich, Danbury to Norwich, all state sectors experienced firsthand nature’s powerful arm. Adding to an unsavory stew of post-hurricane misery is a significant number of Connecticut residents living without electricity or means to run sump pumps amidst woefully flooded basements. Reports indicate that, depending on which county in which individuals reside, it’s impossible to drive out of select neighborhoods due to fallen trees and wires. (Some New York City commuters dwelling in areas of Fairfield Country, for example, could not only get out of their neighborhoods for Monday’s employment journey, but were further hampered by lack of functioning trains running on defined schedules.) In the interim, as flooded basements yield to dryer conditions and electricity becomes fully restored, recall the value of being storm-prepared. And, make certain to say a good word to all officials (we are so far impressed with Governor Dannel Malloy’s efforts) and workers dedicated to public safety and dealing with unwanted results from nature’s acutely felt one-two punch.

ACIM scholarship recipients The American Committee on Italian Migration held its Annual Scholarship Luncheon at Brazi’s Italian Restaurant on Aug. 6. Three outstanding recipients received scholarship awards for their academic excellence and extensive community service. This year’s recipients were: Annamaria DiCesare, Natalie Osborne (Rose Cretella Scholarship Award for the Arts) and Gabriel Scrivani. They are enrolled in four-year institutions of higher learning in order to pursue academic goals. DiCesare is a graduate of Lyman Hall High School and will attend Quinnipiac University. She will be majoring in physical therapy in order that she may assist on a military base to aid in the recovery of America’s armed forces. Osborne is a graduate of Joseph Foran High School and will attend Bennington College. Her future goal is to become a dramatic writer. Osborne who has already written a play and feels that creative writing is what she was meant to accomplish in life. Scrivani is a graduate of North Haven High School and will attend Sacred Heart University. His academic goal is to pursue a career in pediatric nursing. Scrivani’s inspiration for his career was inspired by the loss of a close friend who died at the age of seven from neuroblastoma.

Blood drives planned in area

The supply of type O negative blood at the American Red Cross has dropped to critically low levels. Type O negative blood is always in high demand because it can be transfused to patients with any blood type, especially in emergency situations. Type O negative donors are needed now to help prevent the type O negative blood supply from declining further. While all blood types are needed during the summer months, the Red Cross urges those eligible donors with O negative blood type to make and keep appointments in the upcoming days to help restore the blood supply. A shortage of type O negative blood often occurs during the summer months when fewer donors are giving because of summer vacations and schools approaching summer break are hosting fewer drives.

If you are in generally good health, are 17 or older and weigh 110 pounds or more, you may call (800) 4483543 to make an appointment for any Red Cross blood drive in Connecticut.

react more quickly.” North Haven homes without electricity may not receive it back until September. “The reality is that, in an earlier conference call with the Governor and officials from the major utility companies, it could be up to a week before the power is turned back on,” Freda said on Aug. 30. “I can emphasize with citizens who do not have power,” Freda added, “because I, myself, do not have power at my house, and I have a senior citizen mother-in-law living with me during the day, so I can certainly emphasize about how power outages have affected citizens here.” According to Assistant Superintendent Patricia Brozek, in Irene’s aftermath North Haven public schools will delay opening day until Tuesday, Sept. 6. Originally, the first day of school in town was to be Sept. 1. However, academic officials delayed the date in consideration of lingering power outages and downed electric wires throughout the municipality after Hurricane Irene struck last weekend.

I personally have lost property and can empathize with many who are now trying to pick up the pieces. Governor Dannel Malloy Fasano and the Emergency Operations Center have done a tremendous job keeping the state informed. Here is the dedicated state website — As everyone attempts to clean up, there is other important information you may want to keep handy. For individual assistance with property damage, you need to fill out paperwork with the local Emergency Management representative in your area. North Haven residents can contact Fire Chief Vincent Landisio at 203-239-5321 ext 725, or Also, such persons should contact their insurance company. Call the company or visit a mobile claims center to start claims. If you need help locating your company or agent, contact the Connecticut Insurance Department at 800-203-3447 or use 860-297-3900. Here are some other steps to take following damage to your property: • Make temporary repairs or arrange for a qualified professional to do so. Take photos of the damage and remove personal property if your home cannot be secured. Do not dispose of property until an insurance adjuster has reviewed it for your claim. Many policies include reimbursement for storage costs incurred until your home is repaired. • If you can still live in the home, talk with your agent about critical repairs that need to be made. Whether you make the repairs or hire someone, save the receipts for your claim. • If you need to find other lodging, keep records of expenses and all receipts. Homeowners and renter’s in-

• Do not feel rushed or pushed to agree on a settlement. If there are disagreements, try to resolve them with your insurer. If you cannot reach an agreement, the Connecticut Insurance Department can help you decide if arbitration or mediation is an option. • Your full claim may come in multiple payments. The first will likely be an emergency advance and may include additional living expenses. The payment for your personal property and any additional living expenses will be made out to you. Payments for the structure may be payable to you and your lien holder if there is a mortgage on your home. When making repairs, consider the following: • Beware of scams! Fraudulent individuals often take advantage of the chaos following a disaster. Check with the state Department of Consumer Protection to make sure contractors are properly licensed and/or registered and get references before hiring a contractor to make repairs. Always insist on a written estimate before repairs begin and do not sign

surance generally provide limited coverage for expenses like: meals, rent, utility installation and transportation. • Most insurance companies have a time requirement for filing a claim. The process will go faster if you can locate a copy of your policy and home inventory. • You will be asked to list all items destroyed, damaged or missing. If you do not have a home inventory, begin making a list of items going room by room from memory and include as much detail as possible. • If your car is damaged while in your garage/carport, it is covered by your automobile policy, not your homeowner’s policy. If you are insured by two separate companies for these items you must file a claim with both companies. • Your insurance company will send an insurance adjuster to survey damage at no cost to you. Public adjusters may offer the same services, but you would be responsible for any related fees. Check to be sure they are licensed with the state insurance department.

Unified involves athletes without intellectual disabilities competing as a team in softball, basketball, croquet and flag football. Golf is used in both traditional and unified athletics. “This year, we introduced a new program called the Hip Hop Program, which is an exercise and dance class

where participants dance to music. The program is led by dancer and instructor Roxanne Mongillo,” said Pettit. “At the end of the program, the participants performed in a dance competition at Fantasia on Washington Avenue.” “The show was successful and it turned into a benefit for Special Olympics,” she added. Pettit and Cerrato are grateful for the generosity and constant support of local organizations, including The North Haven Rotary Club, The North Haven High School Football Team, and Dance Productions, who have aided in hosting

fundraisers. All money from fundraising events helps to buy equipment, team uniforms and provide transportation for the athletes. “These organizations are wonderful, and words cannot express our gratitude for all what they do,” said Cerrato. “For example, The Rotary Club sponsors a pancake breakfast that is well-attended and the Football Team do a benefit called A Spring Brawl that raised $2500 this year.
