Two newly sworn in police officers fulfill childhood dream By Paul Colella Special to the Citizen

The brave men and women of all police departments demonstrate sacrifice and courage, honor and valor by putting their lives on the line for their communities every day while serving and protecting the public. At the recent North Haven Board of Police Commissioners’ meeting, two new officers were sworn in to the department. The two new officers, Clifford Hill, of Wallingford, and Christopher Spose, of North Haven, were sworn in by Joseph D’Errico Sr., chairman of the police commission. Both Hill and Spose have always wanted to be police officers since they were

little boys, and now they are one step closer to fulfilling their life long dream. “We have one of the top departments in the area and we are proud of this department,” D’Errico said. “We had 20 applicants apply and from the 20, we chose the top five, and then from the five we selected the top two to fill the two openings we had in the department. These two young men are the cream of the crop.” D’Errico further explained that the swearing in of the two new police officers is to replace two veteran officers who have recently retired. Hill and Spose are currently spending time training at the police station and will soon attend the police academy for 20 weeks. After

the academy, they will then partake in 10 weeks of field training followed by eight weeks working with an assigned officer before going on their own. “They have gone through rigorous and extensive testing,” said Police Chief James X. DiCarlo. “We received the best out of the group. They have a long journey ahead but we welcome them, support them, and hope we will have them with us for a long time.” Family and friends of both Hill and Spose, as well as members of the police commission, and First Selectman Janet M. McCarty, were present at the swearing See Officers, page 33

Local opinions differ on healthcare reform By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen As America debates healthcare reform across the country, North Haven’s State Representative and State Senator both recently offered their opinions on the matter. State Rep. Stephen Fontana (D – North Haven) spoke to seniors Sept. 16 at the American Legion Post 76 about America’s healthcare system and potential reform. “Obama and other people in Congress are looking at healthcare,” Fontana said. “It’s about fixing what’s broken with the system.” The speech, given before several dozen seniors at their temporary center, was in defense of the proposed reforms. “In the United States, we spend approximately double per person than what other countries pay for healthcare,” Fontana added. “What do they know that we don’t?” Fontana on Medicare

Fontana stressed that he believed that the reforms would not negatively affect Medicare, which provides health insurance coverage to Americans over the age of 65. A majority of the Sept. 16 audience said that they were enrolled in Medicare. “Nothing that Congress or Obama are talking about would cut Medicare benefits, interfere with your ability to see a doctor, or increase your out-of-pocket costs,” Fontana said. “Healthcare reform is intended to lower the costs for seniors.” “The reforms do not concern how Medicare operates,” Fontana added. “No plans talk about charging seniors more.” The state representative said that under the current healthcare system, Medicare is heading for trouble. “The current healthcare system undermines Medicare’s long-term stabili-

The Town of North Haven Water Pollution Control Authority has announced that bills for sewer usage will be mailed to all property owners whose homes or businesses are connected to the sanitary system. The charge will be $240 for a single dwelling and $480 for a twofamily dwelling. The charge for industrial/commercial properties will be $3.85/1,000 gallons. The charge, which covers usage from July 1, 2008, to June 30, 2009, is mandated by the United States Environmental Protection Administration for municipalities receiving grants from the Federal Government. The rate established by the WPCA is based upon actual expenses from the prior fiscal year. An aging Water Pollution Control Facility, originally built in 1966 and refurbished in 1991, has realized significant increased costs in repairs and replacement of treatment units at the multi-million dollar facility. The WPCA this year has had to repair the sludge digesters at a cost of approximately $500,000. Additionally, electrical costs and the cost of purchasing nitrogen credits as part of the statemandated program administered by the Department of Environmental Protection have increased.

Finance board members ask attorney general about approval of budget transfers By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

tion on this matter not only for the town of North Haven, but for all towns in Connecticut that have a Selectman form of government.” Board chairman Dean Volain said that the board would wait for Blumenthal’s response and act accordingly. Doheny and Monico’s letter also inquires clarification for specific proper transfer procedures. Additionally, the letter asks if the Board of Finance has the authority to transfer money out of the contingency fund, or whether such transfers also require town meeting approval. Tax collection rate Doheny passed out documents to defend his belief that the Board of Finance set the estimated 2009-10 fiscal year tax collection rate too high. The estimated tax collection rate is currently 98 percent – Doheny has argued in the past for several tenths lower. The 98 percent is based partly on statistics from the past fiscal year, in which the town collected $65,846,966 in levy, which represents 98.07 percent of the adjusted grand levy of $67,191,298. However, Doheny has argued that the actual tax collection rate should be de-

duced by dividing the actual levy into the original budgeted grand levy, the number that was initially used in forming the budget. Using Doheny’s math for the 200809 fiscal year tax collection rate, $65,846,966 divided into $67,535,350 – the number Doheny gives as the original budgeted grand levy – comes out to 97.6 percent. Doheny also used his math to plot his interpretation of the actual collection rates from the last 10 fiscal years, which came out to 97.6 percent in 2009, 98.08 percent in 2008, 97.99 percent in 2007, 98.28 percent in 2006, 97.5 percent in 2005, 98.18 percent in 2004, 97.38 percent in 2003, 97.18 percent in 2002, 96.44 percent in 2001, and 96.57 percent in 2000. The 10-year average of Doheny’s figures is 97.52 percent. Board vice-chairman Michael Hallahan pointed out that Doheny’s 10-year average may have been skewed by the 2000 and 2001 fiscal year percentages. “Your average annual col-

lection rate is affected by a couple low early years,” Hallahan said. “That brings down the average number. The trend over the last four years is higher. The 98 percent figure we’re shooting for is more in line with what’s happened over the last four years, instead of what’s happened over the last 10 years.” “Our target was set apparently based on the most up to date collection rates,” Hallahan added. Doheny responded that the actual collection rates from the last four years could have been unusually buoyed by the escalation of home values, a trend which has reversed in the last year. Doheny added that the 2000 and 2001 percentages also may represent the 200910 figure more accurately than the 2006-09 percentages. “The 2001 percentage was at the tail end of the last recession,” Doheny said, alluding to the currently similar

Last week’s Board of Finance meeting revisited concerns from previous board meetings, including end-ofthe-fiscal-year transfers, the tax collection rate, and refunded legal fees. Budget transfers Board members Tim Doheny and Richard Monico announced that they had sent a letter to Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal regarding endof-the-fiscal-year budget transfers. Performed annually by the board in August, the transfers shift money within the recently completed fiscal year’s budget from under expended line items to over expended items. Thus, the transfers bring all the line items into balance. Doheny and Monico, along with several citizens, questioned in the previous board meeting whether North Haven’s Board of Finance had sole authority to approve the transfers, since the town follows a Selectman form of government with town meeting as legislature. In the letter to Blumenthal, which was given to other board members, Doheny and Monico ask whether a

town meeting should be held to approve the transfers. “At the crux of the issue is the interpretation of [Connecticut General Stature] 7347,” the two board members write. CGS 7-347, which governs town Boards of Finance, states, “The board may transfer unexpended balances from one appropriation to another, but no amount appropriated for any purpose, whether general or special, shall be used or appropriated for any other purpose unless the same is recommended by the board.” The question of interpretation lies in the phrase, “unless the same is recommended by the board.” As North Haven’s town meeting serves as legislature, the Board of Finance answers to town meeting. Therefore, some residents believe, the Board of Finance cannot appropriate an amount for any purpose unless the same is recommended by town meeting. The budget transfers were approved at the Aug. 19 Board of Finance meeting, without a town meeting hearing. “Given that our confusion arises from state statute,” the two board members write, “we hope that your office can provide clear direc-

Landcraft Fife and Drum Corps one step closer to energy conservation By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

The Landcraft Fife and Drum Corps has been approved by the state to accept corporate donations for energy conservation upgrades to the corps’ North Haven headquarters, through the Connecticut Neighborhood Assistance Act. The NAA allows any corporation that bestows donations to non-profits like Landcraft for energy conservation efforts to write off most of the donations on both the corporation’s federal and state taxes, said Landcraft president John McGuire. Therefore, any corporation that makes donations to Landcraft through

the NAA would actually come out ahead. Despite the overt opportunity to profit, Landcraft members said that they expect difficulties in attracting organizations to make donations, due to the complexity of regrouping donations through the NAA and the economic recession. “It’s always a problem to find corporations to donate money,” said CPA and Landcraft treasurer Dan O’Mara, “they don’t understand it’s a win-win for them.” Landcraft member Bill Maling pointed out that in the current recession, corporations which have taken financial hits may not owe enough on their taxes for it to be worth making a donation

“Preplanning is the most thoughtful gift to give my family.”

for the purposes of a writeoff. “The current economic situation has been very difficult for many corporations in terms of earnings, thereby affecting the amount of Connecticut taxes due and ability to utilize NAA credits,” Maling said. “Even the foundations are having difficult times these days in that their assets have declined, which affects their giving patterns.” Also of hindrance could be the amount necessary for NAA donations. Landcraft president John McGuire said that at minimum a NAA donation should be around $10,000 for state and federal tax collectors to consider it as a potential double writeoff. “The donation has to be up there in the high echelon of tax donations,” McGuire

said. Maling, who is heading Landcraft’s donation search, said that the corps began solicitations in August. Maling added that corporations have a short window to alert the state of their donation intentions, from Sept. 15 to Oct. 1. “We have contacted some larger corporations in North Haven,” Maling said, “and several other area corporations who have participated in the NAA program in prior years.” Maling said that the state publishes records of corporations that made NAA donations and how much they bestowed. Maling added that no North Haven corporations have participated in NAA in recent years. Another factor impeding Maling’s hunt for donations is that only taxable ‘C’ corporations are eligible for NAA

participation, as opposed to “pass-through,” non-taxed LLC and ‘S’ corporations. Landcraft was approved at a June 22 North Haven town meeting to seek state approval for NAA status. The NAA stipulates that non-profits apply through a municipality for state approval. Landcraft will have to wait to see if they will be receiving funding for their energy conservation efforts. “We really won’t know much about the results of our NAA efforts until December,” Maling said, “since the state has to notify any participating corporation that their credit for any donation is approved.” Landcraft is looking to raise approximately $20,300 through donations to improve the energy efficiency of Moriarty Hall, their 62 Clark Ave. property, O’Mara said. The proposed improvements include the installation of solar panels and an on demand water heating system, as opposed to a less-energy efficient hot water holding tank. Corporations can also donate to NAA approved nonprofit organizations for specific measures not centric to energy-conservation, including funding for neighborhood assistance, education, child care services, employment and training programs for the handicapped or unemployed workers over 50, and programs which assist those around or below the poverty level. Corporations which donate to fund programs not centric to energy-conservation will only receive a state tax credit equal to 60 percent of the amount donated, in addition to the applicable federal tax deductions. The Landcraft Fife and Drum Corps includes 45 members from all over the country. A mainstay of local parades and celebrations, the non-profit corps is known for their historical American dress, music, and instruments. For more information, visit

Gov. Rell announces grant money for public safety, public works in town Dozens of Connecticut communities – from one of the largest cities to its smallest towns – will share in nearly $840,000 in federal stimulus funds to support local crime prevention and public safety, Gov. M. Jodi Rell announced last week. “Critical public safety needs are as varied as the towns themselves and so it is important that these crime prevention grants are not a ‘one size fits all’ program,” the governor said. “All across the state our communities have been putting these stimulus grants to work, whether it means buying a new cruiser or radios or paying for training and overtime.” “The one common and important benefit is that these stimulus funds allow our communities to extend their hard-pressed budgets without adding to the local taxpayer’s burden,” the governor said. North Haven will be receiving $30,000 for public safety enhancements. The funds will be used to pur-

chase an additional cruiser for the police department fleet. This added vehicle will be used exclusively by the department’s traffic division to increase traffic enforcement within the town and ultimately increase highway and pedestrian safety. The 36 municipalities are the latest recipients of the Justice Assistance Grants, made available though the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). To date, 79 cities and towns have received $2.1 million in stimulus crime prevention grants and all 169 municipalities are eligible. The state Office of Policy and Management is administering the program and expects to have all grants awarded by Oct. 1. For more information on these law enforcement grants and the ARRA in Connecticut, visit the state’s official Web site at: and click on the CT Recovery link.

Gov. M. Jodi Rell recently announced that North Haven will receive a $250,000 grant for the expansion and renovation of its public works facility. The funding was expected to gain approval when the state Bond Commission met Sept. 25. The funding will help the town build an addition to its existing municipal garage, as well as a more efficient salt shed building at the municipal garage site. The grant will also help with the removal of an existing old and unused rusty metal vehicle storage building from the site that has long outlived its usefulness. The governor said the grant will save the town monthly rental fees for storing municipal trucks privately off-site and improve the safety and efficiency of the public works operations. “This is an investment in North Haven’s infrastructure that will pay big dividends over the long-term,” Rell said. “The town garage has been dealing with space issues for quite some time, and

Eagle Scout project brings the joys of gardening to senior housing complex By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

The elderly residents of North Haven’s Oak View Housing, 520 Pool Road, can now enjoy gardening and freshly planted vegetables thanks to the Eagle Scout project of Boy Scout Bradley Koval. Koval, a member of North Haven Boy Scout Troop 811, organized and spearheaded an undertaking to construct several raised, wooden flowerbeds in Oak View’s backyard. In appreciation, Oak View’s thankful denizens held a reception for Koval and Troop 811 on Sept. 9. “I’m astounded by their professional job,” said Oak View assistant administrator Carol Lawson. The project took months of planning and fundraising before it was built on the weekend of June 13. Koval collected volunteers for the construction, including his fellow Boy Scouts, who worked despite dreary weather. “They really did an excel-

The three large, rectangular raised gardens demonstrate impressive carpentry and could easily be mistaken for professional products. The gardens are the perfect height off of the ground so that Oak View’s elderly residents do not need to hunch over to tend to their plants. Eager to utilize the horticultural gift, Oak View’s residents quickly planted basil, parsley, plum tomatoes, Better Boy tomatoes, Italian fryer peppers, cucumbers, and marigolds. Worrest seemed impressed with the choice of marigolds. “They’re pretty and they keep the bugs away,” the assistant scout master said. Unfortunately, one garden’s crop was eradicated by blight.

Koval helped raise a portion of the costs – Oak View funded the rest. Koval had to calculate the cost of the necessary materials, and decide how much wood, soil, and other supplies would be needed to complete the project. The Boy Scout also organized and led all the volunteers who would help piece together the gardens. Koval had to calculate how many volunteers were necessary and what and how much he needed from each. “It’s not just an Eagle Scout who does it,” said Troop 811 scout master Paul Haaf of an Eagle Scout project. “An Eagle plans it and gets help to do it. An Eagle Scout project is not just to help the community, but also to build a scout’s skills in organization to prepare him for the professional world.” Finally, on a wet June day, Koval’s Eagle Scout project became a reality.

ing plants of the other two gardens were fortunately left unscathed, and have already provided spicy peppers, crimson tomatoes, arom a t i c herbs, and foot-long cucumbers. “Many of our residents like to cook with fresh tomatoes and fresh herbs,” Gillen said. Such desires of Oak View’s residents helped to bring the garden project to fruition – Oak View’s nearby sister housing complex, Woods Edge, already featured similar raised flowerbeds for many years. “A lot of Oak View’s residents walk along both properties, and they saw the gardens next door,” said Oak View administrator Maria Dias. “They wanted to build one here.” “A lot of residents missed having gardens,” Lawson said. Accordingly, the Rev. Scott Morrow, the president of Oak View’s board of directors, contacted Troop 811. Koval expressed interest to make the garden his Eagle Scout project and began attending board meetings to discuss and plot the project.

Boy Scout Continued from page 6 “He did a great job,” Haaf said. “The project is the culmination of all his scouting. The amount of hours that go into becoming an Eagle Scout is mind-boggling.” “It took one weekend to build,” Koval said of his project, “but a lot of hours to plan.” Oak Views residents and staff were extremely thankful for all of Koval and his volunteers’ hard work, which resulted in their new garden. “It’s beautiful,” said Oak View resident Maureen Williams, who helped to plant tomatoes, basil, cucumber, and parsley. “It gives us something to look forward to every year.” “He did an excellent job,” said Oak View resident Barbara Wysopal, who also

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, September 25, 2009

Help is available, and close by, for those dealing with drug addiction By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

The prescription drug problem persists among North Haven’s young adults, and will do so until something is done to help addicts and to educate those unaware of opioid addiction’s power. On Sept. 18, Eileen Frawley, 19, of Pool Road, and Michael Jacko, 22, of North Hill Road, were arrested and charged with, among other drug charges, the illegal manufacturing and sale of prescription medication, according to police. The arrest came after a police search of a Pool Road home. The young pair was also caught with $5,000 in cash. While it is currently unknown if Frawley and Jacko were addicts themselves, the trend among young prescription pill abusers is that they will eventually begin selling medication to furnish their own growing addictions. Removing Frawley and Jacko from the community

will certainly halt one source of illegally used medication. However, the sad truth is that there are other young prescription pill abusers in North Haven who are reaching the point of their addiction where they must sell pills to keep up with their growing habit. These addicts are ready to step in and replace the two arrested young adults. The problem is not entirely the addicts-turned-drugdealers – it is also the drug and the addiction. While many continue to believe that the answer to prescription pill abuse is criminal punishment, others are attempting to also approach the problem before it ends with jail time. Harbor Health Services, a private, non-profit corporation which provides behavioral healthcare to adults in North Haven and on the Connecticut shoreline, held a seminar earlier this month at the Blackstone Library in Branford on how to help someone struggling with addiction. The seminar’s cen-

tral speaker, Kevin Haushulz, is the lead telephone recovery support coordinator for Hartford’s Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery office, as well as a recovering heroine and alcohol addict. Haushulz stressed that the age for prescription pill experimentation is getting lower. “The age of first use is much lower now,” Haushulz said. “I’ve seen as low as eight to nine years old, though more realistically, it’s 11 to 12. When you walk into a detox now, a lot of people are pretty young.” Prescription pills are easily acquired - unlike marijuana and alcohol, youths can typically obtain pills in their own home with little hindrance. “A lot of kids start out just raiding their parents’ medicine cabinet,” Haushulz said. Commonly abused prescription pills are typically opioids such as Oxycodone. Opioids are significantly more addictive when com-

pared with the other ubiquitous suburban “recreational” drugs like marijuana and alcohol. These powerful addictive qualities, when mixed with the facts that prescription pills are expensive and their effects lessen with elongated abuse, will lead to more powerful narcotics “The trend in Connecticut and America is to start with prescription pills and progress to heroine,” Haushulz said. “Heroine is cheaper.” Heroine, Haushulz said, is often purchased by middle class youths in cities such as New Haven, and then transported back to the suburbs. “A lot of people argue that the majority of people buying heroine in Hartford don’t live there,” he said. While there is obviously no single solution for the prescription pill epidemic, Haushulz believes that one strategy is to understand addiction and heal the addict. “We need to try to give people a better understanding of what addiction really is,” said Haushulz, who has been sober for three years. “The biggest misconception is that addiction is a choice. People do not actually make a choice to become an addict. Of course, somebody makes

that first choice to ingest a drug.” Young adults will invariably experience drugs and some will experiment. An even smaller number will then become addicts. “What causes addiction,” Haushulz asked rhetorically. “An addict’s grandfather or father could be an alcoholic. Or an addict could be brought up in an abusive household. Their parents and siblings could have used.” “If you look in anybody’s family,” Haushulz added, “you will probably find somebody who drinks a little too much.” It has been proven that addiction is often hereditary. “For a lot of people, once they take that drug for the first time, they have that addiction gene lying in wait,” Haushulz said. “And then it comes to the surface. It was like that for me with heroine. As soon as I had done heroine, I loved it. It just put me at such a sense of well being and peace. I didn’t care what happened.” “People use drugs because they work,” Haushulz added. “They let you forget about your problems for an hour or two. They’re such a relief.”

economic climate. The 2009-10 budgeted collection rate has already been set. Doheny said his figures were for future consideration. “This is not for action,” he said. “Just for information.” “For me, I want to adjust this and check all the numbers,” Volain said of Doheny’s figures. Refunded legal fees In the previous board meeting, it was pointed out that the town’s legal bills from the Marcus Law Firm of North Branford were curiously high. Marcus billed at $300 an hour, when most other firms billed around $150 per hour. When contacted, Shelley Marcus of the Marcus Law Firm said that the bills were a mistake, and that the town should have only been charged $195 per hour, as per special agreement between the town and the firm. On Sept. 16, board member and First Selectman Janet McCarty said that the town would be receiving a rebate check from the Marcus Law Firm in the amount of $3,844.25. The rebate represents firm overcharges from 15 bills, dating from March to June 2009. Additionally, McCarty said that the town would not pay six standing invoices from the Marcus Law Firm until the rebate is received. The six invoices also contain the incorrect per-hour rate, and will be paid using the corrected rate. McCarty was confident that the town would catch similar mistakes in the future. “We’ve now instituted a checks-and-balances system to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” she said.

There are times when, as a newspaper editor, you just feel really good about a particular issue. This week, I think, is one of those times for me. Each week we strive to bring our readers the stories that are important to them, whether they bring necessary information, feature fascinating people, shed light or awareness on an issue, or just simply entertain. This week’s issue does just that, and reflects the issues and people that are markedly North Haven. The North Haven Citizen congratulates Christopher Spose and Clifford Hill, the two men recently sworn in as new North Haven police officers. In our front page story, Spose and Hill talk about their life-long dreams of becoming officers, and their desire to help people. It is inspiring to see people making strides to achieve their dreams, and we offer our best wishes as they make their way to the police academy. Our second front page story about healthcare brings the national headlines a bit closer to home. Steve Fontana and Len Fasano offer their respective opinions on how the country should move forward with healthcare reform. While they both agree that reform is necessary, they disagree on how it should happen. In our poll question this week we put the question to our readers: “Do you believe healthcare reform is necessary?” Vote in the poll, and leave your comments on our Web site.

Perhaps the most inspiring story this week is about Boy Scout Bradley Koval. For his Eagle Scout project Koval spearheaded the construction of raised garden beds at Oak View senior housing, an addition that has brought joy to the seniors living there. We congratulate Bradley on a job well done! Those Boys Scouts who seek out the highest achievement in the organization, and the Girl Scouts who do the same with the Gold Award, have always fascinated me. These young people display a level of commitment and work ethic that, let’s face it, most adults don’t even have. Add to that the fact that these projects focus on providing something for others, and these kids are single-handedly helping to better their communities. We are lucky to have them. As we all know, not all news is good news. It is a sad reality that North Haven is not immune to the tragic effects of drug addiction. The Citizen has continued its series with an article about how addicts and their families can find help. The story focuses on an interview with Kevin Haushulz, a recovering addict who has been clean for three years and currently works as the lead telephone recovery support coordinator for Hartford’s Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery. Community involvement is essential in creating a wellrounded newspaper. We are encouraged to see that our readers are participating in great number in our Letters to the Editor section. Election season tends to increase the amount of letters we get, and I would like to commend those who civilly contribute to the public discourse about important town issues. I also continue to encourage readers to submit their questions for our Selectman Candidate Q&A. There are only a couple segments left – to be published on Oct. 16 and 30 – so let us know what questions you have for North Haven’s first selectman candidates.

Letters to the Editor

Republican candidates rebuke letter

Resident expects civility, respect from town hall

To the editor: Recently, many North Haven voters received a letter signed by Janet McCarty seeking campaign donations. While she clearly has every right to ask for said donations, we take strong offense as to the language she employs, particularly her categorizing the Republican candidates as corrupt. This is personally offensive, completely irresponsible and a total falsehood. After all that we’ve been through as a community, we will not tolerate such unsubstantiated charges to be used as political fodder. The 2009 Republican endorsed candidates for office in the Town of North Haven are qualified and experienced professionals who simply wish to further serve their hometown. In many cases, our candidates are seeking office for the first time and should be encouraged to present a new approach and a new vision as to town government. If Janet McCarty and her campaign manager, Bill Gambardella, choose the path of personal attacks, it can only be seen as a smokescreen to distort the fact that we are leading a new team that will move North Haven forward. As candidates, we intend to conduct a campaign that focuses on the performance of the current administration and most importantly, the issues that are most critical to North Haven voters. The voters of North Haven will make the ultimate choice on Nov. 3, 2009. It is our responsibility to give them the information they need to make a wise and informed decision. Mike Freda, Republican First Selectman candidate Tim Doheny, Republican Selectman candidate J. Stacey Yarbrough, Republican Town Clerk/Tax Collector candidate Laurie-Jean Hannon, Republican Town Treasurer candidate

To the editor: As a resident of North Haven for 84 years, and as a lifelong taxpayer here, I believe I have the right to expect civility from elected officials and employees of this town. Their salaries are paid with my tax money. In a recent incident of incivility, I called Town Hall to inquire as to the upcoming selectman debates. I spoke with Ms. McCarty’s assistant. She asked for my name and phone number, which I gave for her to call me back with the information. When she returned the call, she asked if I was “Millie” (I am known through town as the former Republican town chairperson). When I said that was me, she asked very sarcastically, “Why don’t you call Mike Freda?” I never hide my political affiliation. I’m proud of the 40 years of service I gave to my town. I feel justified in resenting being treated with a sarcastic attitude. If those leading our town, and those working for them, want the respect of the people, it’s time they showed a little respect. Mildred Stankiewicz North Haven

McCarty deserves a second term To the editor: I am a longtime resident of North Haven and I love the town. I am a retired teacher. I taught for 33 years. I am going to vote for Janet McCarty this November. This is why. There are obvious reasons, such as no tax increase. My taxes actually went down. Honest budgeting, senior tax relief, no cuts in services, and the savings she has brought about by being an advocate for all the people of North Haven are other strong reasons why I feel that voting for her would be a good decision. But more specifically, First Selectman McCarty really seems to care. She was a founding member of the Education Foundation, active in PTA, and at one point

funded the televising of the Board of Education meetings. Let’s face it, Janet puts North Haven first in all that she does. First Selectman McCarty also increased the library hours. I always encouraged my students to read and learn. Some students needed the quiet of the library, while others loved the resources and knowledge it provided. Over the years, I tried to set the example to my students that, “Well done is better than well said.” First Selectman McCarty has aced that test in her first term. Let’s elect her for a second term to continue the good. Catherine Deppen North Haven

Vote for Freda’s leadership To the editor: I have lived in North Haven for many years. It used to be a quiet place where we received the best services and had the best school system in the area. Since Ms. McCarty came onto the scene a few years ago, there has been a change, but not a good one. Both parties used to have their differences, but were civil to each other and were able to work it out. Ms. McCarty and her party have brought the “politics of personal destruction” to town. People they don’t agree with are targeted and investigated so they will no longer be a threat. This behavior is not acceptable to me. I expect the two parties to work out their differences based on the issues and the facts. I don’t enjoy reading these constant newspaper articles which degrade the town. I expect any administration to be able to work with others honestly and without threats of retaliation. This is why I am voting for Mike Freda. He is genuine and not interested in proving anything to anyone but himself. He is confident enough to make strong decisions, but will also admit when he doesn’t have all the answers. What we need is leadership, not excuses. Elinor C. Pedalino North Haven

Voting for McCarty’s forward thinking To the editor: I am writing in support of the re-election of Janet McCarty. In the past one and a half years, Janet has accomplished many things for North Haven. For example, she encouraged her department heads to apply for grants to benefit the town. Recently, the town received approval from the State Department of Economic and Community Development to construct a new, 4,800 square foot garage to provide additional storage space for large vehicles. This will give the Department of Public Works the space to store “treated salt” which is better for the environment. By using treated salt, the town can reduce the amount of sand and waste that flows into catch basins. The project is being funded by the Small Town Economic Assistance Program Grant, so that the town’s share of the estimated $400,000 project is only $50,000. It is forward thinking like this which explains why Janet McCarty has my support for re-election. Leroy C. Gould North Haven

McCarty brings stability to town To the editor: We are all not the sum of our best and worst moments. You have heard me use this phrase before, because it is so true, that it’s worth mentioning over and over again. Janet McCarty is in fact, honest, hardworking, and sincere in doing what she feels is right for this town and its people. Innuendos, distortions, nitpicking, are a fact of life with political strategy. Please don’t fall victim to these tactics, and make your judgment on how you, and your family have been affected by this current administration’s efforts. Look intelligently and honestly at where you are, and from what you came See Letters, page 40

Election letters policy In order to allow the largest number of citizens to express their opinions on the upcoming elections, we have a special election season letter policy. The deadline for election letters is the same, Tuesday by noon, and will be strictly adhered to. Election letters will be limited to 250 words. For the last week before elections (deadline Oct. 29) only positive letters of support will be accepted. Of course, only signed letters with phone numbers (so we can verify authorship) will be accepted. All other letter rules apply (see box below).

Letters policy Readers of The North Haven Citizen are invited to share their ideas and opinions by sending in Letters to the Editor. To facilitate the publication of your contributions, several guidelines should be followed. We require that all letters be signed, and include a daytime telephone number (numbers won’t be published, it is just for verification purposes). The writer will be called to confirm authorship. No anonymous letters will be printed. Contributions by any individual or group will not be published more frequently than twice a month. Every effort will be made to print all letters received. However, the selection and date of publication will be at the discretion of the editor. Finally, the opinions expressed by our letter writers are not necessarily those of this newspaper. Deadline for letter submissions is Tuesday by noon for Friday’s publication. E-mail your letters to

Indians lose game opener to Branford By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

The North Haven football team dropped its opening game to Branford Hornets 19-3, as the squad suffered multiple missed opportunities. The game was played before a packed crowd at Branford’s football field. North Haven won the coin toss and elected to kick off, as to receive the ball in the second half. The Indians began auspiciously and their defense forced a quick three-and-out from the Hornets. Branford quarterback and captain Andrew Luzzi was very nearly picked off on the first play of the game - his pass bounced off the outstretched hands of North Haven defensive back Chris Burr. North Haven’s Kendrick Amaker took the resulting punt across midfield to Branford’s 47-yard line. Unfortunately, things turned sour from there. The Indians’ first offensive snap of the regular season was sent sailing over the head of quarterback Stephen Cusano. North Haven players scrambled to recover the ball for a loss of 13 yards. After short runs by Amaker and captain Ryan Criscio, North Haven punted. Branford began the drive on their 18-yard line. After a few Branford runs for a first down, North Haven’s Edward Glenn rumbled through the offensive line and dropped Luzzi for a loss of four yards. One play later, Burr lobbed a long pass toward a Hornet receiver. North Haven’s Nate Alleyne leapt into the air, extended his body, and snatched the ball from its arc for the interception. With possession on their 40-yard line, North Haven once again went no where. The Indians punted, and Branford began their drive on their 20-yard line. Branford’s Luzzi and Harrison Goodkind proceeded to find success running on North

Haven, methodically carrying the ball to the Indians’ 15yard line. After North Haven’s Mark Zurlis tackled a Branford runner in the backfield for a loss, Luzzi found Taylor Sullivan in the back of the end zone for a touchdown. The extra point made it 7-0. North Haven answered back as the game proceeded to the second quarter. Criscio took the kickoff 37 yards to Branford’s 45-yard line. Joe Schwab came in to replace Cusano in quarterback, and began to combine with Amaker to poke holes in the home-team’s defense. Schwab and Amaker alternated successful runs before the quarterback completed a 14-yard pass to Amaker, taking the team to Branford’s 18yard line. The home team held strong in the red zone. Branford’s Kyle Naimo brought down Criscio in the back field for a loss of two yards. Branford’s Sean Doherty then sacked Schwab for a loss of seven yards. On thirdand-19, Amaker, who also shined on defense as a cornerback, took the handoff and motored down the left yard line for 13 yards. Facing fourth-and-6 on Branford’s 14-yard line, North Haven attempted a field goal. Kicker Rob Carbone just barely snuck a fading shot over the top of the uprights’ horizontal bar to make the score 7-3. North Haven kicked off and Branford returned to their 38-yard line. Following a pass for 16 yards from Luzzi, the home-team quarterback found tight end Kunimel Lomotey in traffic at midfield. Lomotey shook off several tacklers and tore down the right yard line. Pursuing North Haven defenders pushed the Hornet out of bounds at their team’s four-yard line, but only after he gained 52 yards. On the next play, Luzzi kept the ball and attempted to turn the corner. Amaker raced to the quarterback and delivered a perfect hard hit, sending both of them careening out of bounds. Unfortu-

nately, Amaker rolled over in the momentum and further tossed Luzzi into the ground as the two continued off the field. The move was ruled unnecessary roughness, and Branford was awarded firstand-goal from North Haven’s three-yard line. On the next play, Luzzi again kept the ball and ricocheted up the middle for the touchdown. On the extra point attempt, Amaker made up for his penalty and sprinted around the corner to block the kick and keep the score 13-3. North Haven returned the kickoff to their 41-yard line. After several short runs, a Branford penalty, and an Indians’ first down, Schwab threw a long pass toward Amaker. Branford’s Kyle Nolan got between the quarterback and wide receiver and tipped the ball upward with his outstretched hands. The football came back down in Nolan’s arms for an interception, and Branford took over on their 19-yard line. The Indians’ defense stymied the Hornets after the interception, forcing a three-and-out, with North Haven lineman and captain Jon Proto sacking Luzzi on third down. Branford avoided a calamity on the resulting punt, as their punter skillfully recovered a horrendous snap which skidded along the turf. The visitors allowed the resulting punt to drop, and found themselves on their 31yard line with just 29 seconds left in the first half. After a Branford offsides netted five yards, Amaker ran seven yards for the first down. The Indians attempted some trickery on the next play. The ball was handed off to Amaker, who stopped and lobbed a throw toward tight end Edward Glenn, who was streaking wide open downfield. Unfortunately, the ball was thrown too far beyond Glenn, and it clanked to the field incomplete. Schwab then lofted a ball skyward and toward Amaker, who leapt up and over his See Football, page 31

Youth football goes 4-1 in week four action


The eighth grade team (12) got their first win of the season with a 29-13 win over Old Saybrook. North Haven scored on their first three possessions, a five-yard run by Ethan Suraci, and a pair of back-to-back long touchdown runs by Suraci and Christian Black. Ben Pethick and Freddy Sanchez ran the ball effectively all game, with Sanchez scoring the final North Haven touchdown. Stephan Butler added the point after touchdown (PAT) run. Old Saybrook was having no luck running the ball against the North Haven defense, led by Eddie Carafeno and Mike Halloran. Alex Puzone and Louie Caveliere both had interceptions. The sixth grade Indians pushed their record to 3-0 with a win against Tri-Town 28-6 on Sunday. North Haven’s offense was led by the hard running of Anthony Miscio and Chris Gaiser up the middle, and Patrick McKenna on the outside. Gabe Claudio provided solid interior offensive line play, while Michael Sgambato provided key outside blocking. The Indians scored

quickly, with Nick Ponzio returning the opening kick off for a touchdown. North Haven will be away next week at Branford at 3 p.m. to play the Hornets. The seventh grade Indians built up an 18-0 first half lead and then held off Branford’s second half flurry to preserve a 24-14 win and improve their record to 4-0. Johntavious Jones rushed for all four touchdowns for North Haven, who will be away at Tri-Town next week. The fifth grade team (4-0) remained undefeated by defeating a previously unbeaten North Branford team 20-0. North Haven scored on it’s first play from scrimmage. Tommy Dodge took the ball around the right end for a 55yard touchdown run. The extra point pass to Bowen Brennan from Dodge was good. Dodge once again found the end zone on a 30-yard touchdown run. The extra point pass to Carson Tebbetts made it 14-0. Dodge added the final North Haven score on an 18-yard run to seal the victory. Preston Young had his second interception of the year. The defense also caused

three fumbles. Max Curcio, Kyle Melillo, Jack Steinman, and Paul Murray anchored a stingy North Haven defense. Tommy Myjak made several key blocks on offense. North Haven will host Cheshire A next week at Vanacore field. North Haven fourth graders (3-1) fell to Madison A 6-0 on Sunday in a defensive battle. North Haven had a couple of scoring opportunities in the first and fourth quarters, but came up short. Zack Orth gave North Haven their best chance with a 20yard run to set the team up with first-and-10 at the Madison 20-yard line. Madison held on four plays to turn the ball over on downs. North Haven drove the field with 6:00 left in the fourth quarter but fell just short. Defensively, Zack Orth, Gabe Martinez, and Mark Montano led the team with tackles. The Apache Line of Mike Briscoe, Jake Porto, Jake LaFond, Jack Clapp, and Kalid Saidi held tough against The Madison team. North Haven will host Amity in a huge conference game on Sunday. —Submitted by Ed Tantorski

defender for a 32-yard completion. Now at the Branford 25-yard line, and with only several seconds on the clock, Schwab kept the snap and attempted to run toward sideline. Branford tacklers brought him down inbounds and the half ran out. Criscio received the kickoff to begin the second half, and broke through the first wave of tacklers to bring the ball to midfield. On the next play, Schwab bolted ahead eight yards on the keeper, behind some great blocking. On the next play, the team had a player in motion directly behind the quarterback as a distraction. The ball was snapped to North Haven quarterback Ronald Kong, who simply plowed up the middle for eight yards. After Schwab gained three on another keeper, North Haven ran the same exact play as two downs ago. Branford was not confused, and tackled the running quarterback for a gain of only one. Facing fourth-and-two on their own 27, North Haven went for the first down. Unfortunately, Branford defenders broke through the offensive line and sacked Schwab to force a turnover on downs. Branford’s next possession went all the way to their 35-yard line behind several successful keepers from Luzzi. Facing fourth-andlong at the 35-yard line, the Hornets went for it. Luzzi threw a perfect pass to Logan Yelle for what would have been the first down, but the receiver peered ahead before securing the catch and dropped the ball. North Haven took over on downs at their 35-yard line as the third quarter ended. After two unsuccessful runs, Schwab aired a moon-shot toward Amaker, whom once again out-leapt his defender to bring down the catch. The 26-yard completion put the Indians on the Branford 39yard line. Unfortunately, the Indians’ poor luck continued. Schwab rolled out to allow Travis Krause time to get wide open downfield. As the quarterback tossed what could have been an easy touchdown, Krause tripped

over his own feet. The ball bounced off of Kraus’ helmet as he got to his feet and attempted to rejoin the play. Undeterred, Criscio and Schwab turned in back-toback runs to capture the first down. Again within opportunity’s reach at the Branford 24-yard line, North Haven was sent backward with a one-yard loss on a run, and then again by a five-yard illegal substitution penalty. Amaker regained four yards with an end-around, but on third-and-11, the ball was again hiked over the quarterback’s head for a lengthy loss. North Haven recovered and punted. A personal foul call killed Branford’s resulting drive and North Haven took the punt to their 46-yard line. On first down, Schwab scrambled ahead for seven yards and looked like he would get a huge gain, but the quarterback ran directly into the referee. After Amaker gained 15 yards on a run, North Haven was stopped and forced to punt. The game was now beginning to get deep into the third quarter. North Haven’s defense forced a three-andout. The Indians took the Branford punt to their 41yard line. Down by two scores with five minutes left, the visitor’s needed quick points, or the game was most likely lost. Schwab attempted a pass to Amaker, but the ball sailed off the receiver’s fingers. On second down, Schwab kept the ball and gained four yards. On third-and-six with 4:20 left in the game, Schwab attempted a pass, but the throw was broken up by Branford’s Sullivan. North Haven curiously opted to punt on fourth down, with four minutes in the game and down by two scores. By the time the visitors got the ball back with 22 seconds left, Branford’s Luzzi and Goodkind had led Branford to another touchdown. The extra point was missed after being pushed back by an excessive celebration penalty. Starting at North Haven’s 39-yard line and down 19-3, Schwab scrambled for 22 yards. With only several seconds left, Schwab kept again but fumbled the ball as time ran out.

in ceremony. All in attendance were proud of the two young men and offered their support and congratulations. State Rep. Steve Fontana and Selectman Michael Freda, who were not able to attend due to prior commitments, sent their congratulations and best wishes to Hill and Spose and their families. “I always wanted to become a police officer and earn a living while serving and helping other people,” Hill said. “I have great respect and admiration for all police officers, and since I was a child, I dreamed of becoming one of them.” Hill was born and raised in Wallingford. He graduated from Lyman Hall High School and then went to UConn where he received a bachelor’s degree in psychology. He enjoys working out at the gym, spending time with family and friends, and helping out in his community.

His proud parents are Dennis and Lorelei Hill, and he has a brother Dennis. “Clifford is very proud and pleased to choose a career in which he can help people,” Lorelei said. “My son is at his best when he’s lending a helping hand to someone in need. All of our family, including Clifford’s aunts and uncle present this evening, is proud of him.” Like Hill, Christopher Spose had always wanted to pursue a career in law enforcement since childhood. When he was growing up, he lived on a street where three law enforcement officers lived – one North Haven policeman and two state troopers. “Every time a police car or cruiser would drive by our house, Christopher would look out the window and get excited,” recalled Alan Spose, Christopher’s father. “He would tell his mother and me that one day he wanted to become a police officer and drive a police car. My son has respect for the men and women in blue, and he wants to serve his community.”

Spose was born and raised in North Haven. He graduated from North Haven High School and then attended UConn where he majored in business technology. His proud parents are Alan and Donna Spose, and he has a brother Eric and a sister Ashley. Like Hill, Spose spends time with his family and friends, exercises, and helps out in the community by coaching hockey. “My brother has wanted to be a police officer since he was a kid,” Eric said. “His favorite television show is ‘Cops.’ I am very proud of him because he has worked very hard to fulfill his dream.” “I am fortunate and honored to have this opportunity to serve and give back to a community that has been good to me,” Spose said. “I look forward to attending the academy and learning all I can that will benefit me in becoming a good police officer. I have become friends with Clifford and look forward to working with him.” These young men are embarking on a challenging and

Addicts could also suffer from pre-existing psychological conditions, such as bipolar disease or depression, which help push them into addiction. “Is it nature or nurture?” Haushulz said. “Studies have proved both.” “For rich kids, it’s probably an environmental thing,” Haushulz continued. “They’re hanging out with people who are using drugs.” “Affluent communities are more affected by prescription pill addiction because the kids there have the money to afford it,” Haushulz said. “Here in Hartford, kids don’t have the money to afford it. They don’t have the disposable money to afford it.” Unfortunately, the parents of these privileged youths re-

main naïve and in denial about the existence of illicit drugs in their children’s lives. “There is still a lot of hidden stigma,” Haushulz said. “There’s this portrayal of addiction as a physical weakness rather than a biological disease.” This stigma is allowing the drug problem to spread. Adults do not stop and help the recovery of young addicts in their own homes and neighborhoods. “We need to get the message out to the people who are consistently in denial,” Haushulz said. “The stigma will always be there, but it has come a long way. With more and more publicity, people will continue to come out of the closet as being in recovery for drug or alcohol dependency.” For addict recovery, Haushulz is a proponent of interventions to begin the

salvation. He said that an intervention does not necessarily have to be as extreme as demonstrated on television. “For most people, friends and family members come to them, sit down, and talk about their concerns,” Haushulz said. An intervention should also be about opening up and showing support, and should not be a series of attacks, according to Haushulz. “Set boundaries, but let them know that you love and care for them,” he said. “Let them know that their behavior as a result of using is the problem. Listen to them and what they’re saying. They may spew out a lot of nonsense, but listen to them.” “Try to sit down with that person when they are sober, if possible,” Haushulz added. Haushulz, a recovered addict, said that an interven-

tion is just one step toward overcoming addiction. “Recovery happens in stages,” he said. “You have to discover for yourself that you have a problem.” Of course, Haushulz understands that the addict is not the only family member who needs support during drug abuse. “Addiction affects the whole family,” he said. “They need support as well.” For such support, Haushulz recommended attending Nar-Anon and AlAnon, meetings held specifically for the family and friends of addicts. “The meetings are for how to deal with a loved one who is addicted,” he said. “You will have people with shared experiences.” The meetings can be of a service as preparation. “Definitely go to a Nar-Anon or Al-Anon meeting before an intervention,” Haushulz

added. The Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery is one of the largest community recovery organizations in the country, Haushulz said, with four centers in the state. The CCAR is one of the many pathways to recovery for addicts like Haushulz, who had to go through several relapses and failed treatments before overcoming his disease in 2006. “Being an addict is not a choice that anybody makes,” Haushulz said. “And there is always the possibility of recovery. There are tons of resources available for people who need help, whether they are an addict or the loved one of an addict.” Haushulz welcomed people to contact him or the CCAR for any questions. To contact Haushulz, call (860) 218-9531.

Prescription drug disposal

no longer suggested as wastewater treatment plants and septic systems cannot break down the drugs as they pass back into the treated water.” The department recommends disposing of prescription and over-the-counter drugs in the trash, after first mixing the medications with an undesirable substance (e.g., bleach, used cat litter, household cleaners) and sealing the mixture inside a plain plastic container. Additional disposal tips include: Remove any personal information from medicine

containers before you throw them away. This will protect your privacy. Watch for and participate in prescription medication take-back programs that are held locally throughout Connecticut. Speak to your pharmacist if you have any disposal questions or concerns. For more information on how to properly dispose of prescription and over-thecounter drugs, please visit the department’s Web site at or call the agency’s Prescription Monitoring Program at (860) 7136073.

Responding to rising rates of prescription drug abuse among teens as well as environmental contamination, Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection Commissioner Jerry Farrell, Jr. is urging Connecticut residents to properly dispose of expired or unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications. “In the past, it was recommended that household medications be flushed down the drain,” Farrell said. “This is

ty,” Fontana said. “There is a trust fund for Medicare – you pay into it while you’re working. It’s going to run out in eight years.” Fontana said that the proposed reforms would help elongate Medicare. “The Washington reforms would stabilize Medicare,” he said. “They would be increasing the Medicare trust fund and allow it to continue to operate. Reforms would push the fund out at least another five years.” Also of paramount concern to senior healthcare, Fontana said that Obama’s reforms would alleviate the infamous “donut hole” in Medicare’s Part D. The hole is a gap in Medicare’s prescription drug coverage, forcing many of the elderly to purchase their own medications. “The current administration has worked out an arrangement with the prescription drug companies that would reduce the costs of prescription drugs by 50 percent,” Fontana said. “It will save hundreds of thousands in prescription drug costs.” Fontana added that the proposed reforms would allow the government to have a say in prescription drug costs. “We need to give the government the power to ne-

gotiate with the prescription drug companies for the best prices available,” he said. Fontana handed out AARP literature that was in favor of Obama’s healthcare reforms. Fontana on healthcare problems Fontana said that there were many factors that currently inflated the cost of American healthcare, such as several abuses related to insurance companies, including Medicare. He said that approximately 45 million Americans are currently without health insurance. “It is very expensive to treat them,” Fontana said. “They wait until they get sick, and then they go to the emergency room where they cannot be refused.” The 45 million uninsured are not only younger individuals, Fontana said, but also older Americans who have lost their employment or health insurance. “If you’re above 55, but under 65, it’s very hard to find health insurance until Medicare starts,” Fontana said. Fontana said that Medicare sometimes reimburses hospitals more money if patients are sent to specialists, as opposed to primary care physicians. Therefore, Fontana said, hospitals abuse the system by unnecessarily shipping patients to specialists when primary care would suffice. “For you, reforms will

make sure that the doctor is not sending you to all these specialists, delaying care and running up the bills,” Fontana said to the seniors. Additionally, because hospitals will sometimes receive a single reimbursement for treating two different ailments in one visit, but will receive two reimbursements if they schedule individual visits for the two ailments, Fontana said that there is abuse in re-admitting patients. “The insurance companies provide doctors with incentives to discharge patients more quickly and then re-admit them,” Fontana said. “When doctors receive these payments, it is not in your best interest. This is waste, abuse, and fraud. This is not right.” Fontana added that private insurance companies, including Medicare Advantage plans, are escalating healthcare costs with their competition and billions of dollars in government subsidies. Fontana suggested phasing down the subsidies, taxing the health insurance plans of people who are still working, and charging private insurance plans a fee. Fontana said that part of reeling back the private companies, lowering healthcare costs, and increasing the insured would be the creation of a reasonably priced public option. “You could buy it yourself, and it would be more afford-

able,” he said of the option. “Insurance companies could compete with the price and the quality of this universal standard.” “A lot of people in Washington are in favor of the public option,” Fontana added. “Not surprisingly, the private insurance companies don’t like the public option.” The state representative said that the public option would be a minimum, and that insurance companies would be welcome to offer more for higher prices. Fontana allowed time for questions from his audience. One issue that was brought up was whether illegal immigrants would receive coverage under Obama’s reforms. “I took a look at the bills out of the [U.S.] House earlier this year,” Fontana said. “It explicitly says that that if you want to get health benefits, you must show proof of citizenship.” However, Fontana added, emergency rooms will continue to accept patients indiscriminately. “If you present yourself at an emergency room for care, then they must give you care,” he said. “This will continue to be the case whether you are a legal person or an illegal person.” Several seniors complained that their Medicare status was scaring away secondary insurance plans. The seniors added that some sec-

ondary insurance plans had claimed that they were unable to cover those enrolled in Medicare. Fontana said that any talk of secondary plans avoiding Medicare was a lie. “Ask them to show you it in writing,” he said. “Say that you need it in writing.” Fontana added that there is currently an overwhelming amount of information on healthcare being presented to the American public, and that everybody should be cautious. “There are bits and pieces of information out there and it can be hard to collect them all into one place,” he said. “Remember – all ads on TV are being paid for by somebody.” Fontana said that the proposed healthcare reforms would cost approximately $100 billion, just four percent of the $2.5 trillion that the U.S. spends on healthcare costs per year. “Overall, what we’re talking about is fixing what’s broken,” Fontana said. “Every year, it gets a little worse.” Sen. Len Fasano on healthcare reform When reached, State Sen. Len Fasano (R – North Haven) agreed with his Hartford colleague that reform was necessary for America’s healthcare, but differed in strategy. “Do we need healthcare

reform - of course we do,” Fasano said. “Do we need to make sure that everybody has insurance - you bet. But the method and manner to achieve that is not just one solution – it’s multiple solutions. I don’t think we’ve exhausted all the solutions before simply throwing money at it.” Fasano’s healthcare reform opinions focused on targeted solutions, rather than a universal approach. Fasano said that he believed the uninsured population is mainly represented by younger Americans, ages 19 to 25. “We can deal with that population,” Fasano said, alluding to his preference for an answer that would more accurately focus on the problem population, rather than creating a blanketed solution. “We need malpractice reform in various ways,” the senator said. “It’s raising healthcare costs.”

“My father is a doctor,” Fasano added. “He’s a family physician. I know the constraints put on him by the insurance companies which cause higher costs.” For example, Fasano said that every insurance company has their own coding system for paperwork, which proves extremely cumbersome. “Doctors have to hire people just to do this coding,” Fasano said. “The insurance companies are driving up our costs.” Fasano suggested a universal coding system to alleviate this problem. For another personal example, Fasano echoed Fontana in that insurance companies will not reimburse doctors for two different types of ailments treated at the same visit. “Say you come into the doctor to have your heart rate checked and your blood pressure checked,” he said. “The doctor does both, but then notices a growth on your body. So the doctor removes the growth. But because it’s just one visit, the

the profitability of private insurance options. Additionally, a more affordable public option could potentially attract a high percentage of customers to switch from private plans. This could both hurt private companies financially, and create a large population which derives their health benefits directly from a single government plan. The notion of the latter vexes Fasano. “Having one plan offered by the government – I think that is a very dangerous area,” he said. Similar sentiments have been expressed across the country, most radically in the famed “death panels” protests. Although he believes that such protests were sensational, Fasano understands the fear of putting one’s health in the hands of the government. “The ‘death panels’ are a little bit dramatic,” Fasano said. “But there is some validity in their understanding.” “Tough decisions are go-



insurance company will say that he didn’t need to check your heart rate and your blood pressure, and will just pay the doctor for the growth. It happened to my dad two weeks ago.” “The insurance companies can be bullies at times,” Fasano added. Fasano argued that a universal approach and more government programs would not be the best means to solve specific problems. “It’s just more bureaucracy,” he said, “more government takeover.” Fasano was wary that it would be impossible for private insurance companies to coexist with a governmentoffered public option. “I do not believe that a government competition system makes any sense at all,” he said. “There’s no way that private companies can compete with a government healthcare plan.” Privately owned businesses would incur a higher costof-business than such a government subsidized healthcare plan, which could affect

from. In this period of vogue, when governors, mayors, selectmen, from many of our surrounding cities and town are being investigated and prosecuted for violating the trust of their constituents, (and we have had our share) Janet has brought respect, and stability back to North Haven. You know how the saying goes, “One in the hand, etc.” The hand we have chosen is a proven winning hand, and I for one am not willing to gamble it away for innuendos, distortions, and political promises of fixing what is not broken. Frank Contento Sr. North Haven

McCarty successful in first term

To the editor: It has been almost two years now since Janet Mc-

Carty took office. She was left with nothing short of a disaster. Two years earlier a Board of Finance that had her opponent as a member ran a town budget deficit of over $1 million. The economy was in shambles. Our roads crumbling, taxes spiraling out of control and the new high school bonding needed to be added to the budget. A new expenditure of over $2,000,000 annually. Janet took office and was immediately faced with a budget crisis left by her predecessor. Two $80,000 plus garbage trucks were failing and were replaced. The middle school roof was leaking badly and was infested with rodents, another $100,000, and the ball fields at the new high school were full of glass. The legacy of no-bid contracts. Janet took the reigns and for the last two years has pared down our town budget by putting everything out to bid. She has permanently reduced spending by $1.2 million. The small increase in taxes the first year in office covered the balance of what

would be due on the high school. This year she paved over five miles of road, fixed the library roof another contractor pal of the Republicans was never held accountable for, and now is faced with the fact that all four boilers at the high school may need to be replaced. The question is, whose friend got that contract? Two years of reading how awful Janet is in every editorial, but never anything about why the Republicans are so angry. Could it simply be that Janet did a better job in two years than they did in the last 30? Bill Gambardella North Haven, town treasurer

First place – town or ally? To the editor: I have seen Janet McCarty walking door to door with Michael Mele. I assume this means that she was involved in his Big Y visit to threaten them following their support of the Sons & Daughters of Italy’s annual Festival of Angels. At the very least, she approves of Mele’s actions or she wouldn’t be out campaigning with him. Remember, this is the same Janet McCarty who opposed only having one grocery store in town. Then, we get Big Y and she opposes their decision to support in a charitable event. She opposes everyone and everything that stands in her way. So, Mele remains ally number one. The people of North Haven come in last. Robert Forte North Haven

To the editor: I was so energized by the election of Janet McCarty and Steve Fontana. It was clearly time for a change. I was confident that a Democratic administration would be that needed change. And indeed it has been. But, things have not simply changed, they have improved dramatically. In less than two years, the Democratic administration of Janet McCarty has accomplished a great deal and as a result North Haven is in

much better shape. Despite being faced with a severe nationwide economic downturn, McCarty has made town government both more efficient and more effective and as a result town revenues have increased. I have been particularly pleased with the infrastructure improvements being made by the McCarty administration across the town as I believe those improvements will allow the town to further prosper in the future. For example, McCarty secured a $350,000 grant for a new town garage and another grant for expansion and improvement of the Senior Center. Her administration has spearheaded water/sewer improvements in the Enterprise Corridor. Roofs on the library and the middle school have been repaired. McCarty fought for parking lot improvements at the Montowese School. Green initiatives like energy audits have identified energy saving changes in the schools and have resulted in street light changes that both save energy and save North Haven $9,000 per month. Some of the improvements have been focused on property owner needs, like long-standing water run-off issues. Thinking to the future, the McCarty administration is exploring plans to expand Valley Service Road to bring new retail development to town which will build our tax base. The efforts of McCarty’s administration to improve town government have certainly made North Haven a better town for us now. Improvements in the infrastructure make it possible for North Haven to be even better in the future. We need to keep the McCarty-Fontana team in office. Their focus on increasing government efficiency and effectiveness and increasing town revenues is a winning formula for the future of North Haven. William C. Kohlhepp North Haven

Public Works facility is an eyesore To the editor: The Public Works Department on Elm Street is a townrun business on town-owned

property. The equipment contaminates soil and water, creates an eyesore, and noise. I am against Town Hall trashing North Haven. The “green” solution would be to level, clean-up, and relocate the Public Works Department. Since this is an environmental concern, there should be state funding available. It is a bad location and property values suffer as a result. 1. This is clearly a hazardous waste site. Contaminated soil from the equipment repair business saturates the property. Waterman’s Brook runs through the property and leads into the Quinnipiac River. Ground water is a transmitter of hazardous chemicals onto nearby property. This justifies a cease and desist order. 2. This is a source of noise pollution. As engines rev-up to get over the hill, noise levels are high and unbearable for residents. Machines and equipment are running around the clock during snow storms. Doing repairs and running loaders are noisy. This type of business is not suitable for this residential area. This is not a good location. Relocate the facility. 3. This is clearly an eyesore. It’s in a deteriorating state. The town plans to expand and retrofit this outdated facility. This plan will make an existing eyesore even bigger. It would create more problems for homeowners in the area. This facility has outlived its usefulness. The Public Works property is a good parcel of land that can serve the town in a more practical way — use it as a cemetery. Level the property, clean it up and use the land as an extension of the cemetery on Elm Street. It’s up to the town to see that Elm Street becomes a street everyone can be proud of, from end to end.

Remember When: The Summer of 1963

Editor’s note: The Citizen will feature a column called Remember When, written by North Haven resident Paul Colella. The column focuses on the interesting, poignant, and historically valuable stories of local residents. If you have an idea for a future column or a story you’d like to tell, contact Paul by e-mail at, or by mail at the North Haven Citizen, 460 Washington Ave., North Haven, CT 06473. It was the summer of 1963, and John F. Kennedy was president. Congress raised the minimum wage to $1.25 an hour and increased Social Security benefits. The Civil Rights Movement was taking place and there was a demand by many Americans for an end to racial injustice. Also during that summer in August over 200,000 demonstrators, both black and white, assembled for a daylong rally for racial justice in front of the Lincoln Memorial, where civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Back home in North Haven, 13-year-old Margaret “Meg” Ryan was helping her mother pack up the family station wagon as they prepared to go to the beach. The Ryan family always spent their summers at the beach in West Haven. However, this summer in 1963 was going to be a special one that Meg would remember for a long time. This is her story. Meg’s father worked in New Haven for an insurance company while Meg’s mother was in charge of the household and the Ryan children. To escape the heat and to have a place to go, the beach was where the Ryans could be found during the summer. “We would spend the days swimming, collecting seashells, making sand castles in the sand, walking the boardwalk, eating hotdogs and ice-cream or snow cones, and meeting new friends,” recalled Meg. “There was so much to do and we had fun and many laughs. We blocked out in our minds what was going on in the

world around us, and the beach was like a second home.” Meg and her sister wore one piece bathing suits at their mother’s request. Meg’s mother believed that people, especially children, could have fun as long as they were proper in attire and behavior. Meg’s sister Kelly had trouble with her ears so she had to wear a bathing cap. Not to make Kelly feel different, Meg wore one too. “I didn’t want my sister to feel different or self-conscious, so I wore a cap even though I did not have trouble with my ears,” said Meg. “As I think back, the cap protected my hair from the salt water.” Meg’s mother would watch the children while sitting on beach blankets and wearing a large hat under an umbrella. When they were not swimming, Meg and her sister and brother would collect seashells and build sand castles. Her brother Jack would sketch out a design in the sand before they began to build. They would spend hours on the sand castles and receive compliments from beach goers and passers by. “Upon my mother’s recommendation, we entered a sand sculpture contest and we won second place,” said Meg. “It was that experience that inspired my brother to want to become an architect, but sadly war and disease altered his plans.” One day while they were swimming, Meg and her sister made friends with a girl from New Haven. Her name was Anita and she was a very good swimmer. She explained to the girls that her role model was Gertrude Ederle, the first woman to swim across the English Channel during the 1920s. Anita taught Meg and Kelly how to do the backstroke and to float on their backs. Both Meg and Kelly became better swimmers thanks to Anita’s lessons. “Anita was a wonderful swimmer and had no fear of the water. One day she was careless and the waves car-

ried her out too far,” recalled Meg. “My mother spotted the red bow that Anita wore in her hair bobbing on top of the water. It was my mother’s sharp vision and the red bow that saved Anita’s life.” Anita’s experience of nearly drowning did not prevent her from going back into the water, but she stayed close to shore. From that day on, Meg always kept an eye on her new friend. She and her sister Kelly and her brother Jack taught Anita how to make sand castles, while she in return gave them swimming lessons. When they were not swimming, collecting seashells, or building sand castles, the Ryan children and Anita enjoyed walking the boardwalk. Meg’s mother would give them money to buy an ice-cream or snow cone. She would only treat them if they ate the healthy lunch she brought to the beach in a picnic basket. Meg’s mother was a true believer in providing well-balanced meals for her family. “My brother thought he was Edgar Allan Poe with his stories of terror and suspense. Some of his stories were called “The Zombie in the Hamper,” “The Cannibal Parents,” “The Giant Grasshopper in the Closet,” and “The Man Eating Daisy,” recalled Meg. “His stories were so outrageous and silly that instead of frightening us, we laughed until our sides ached.” The days passed by quickly and soon it was Labor Day. The weather began to cool down and school was beginning. The beaches would soon be deserted and the lazy, fun-filled days of summer would transform into the cool days of autumn. Like the seasons that change, so do the cycles in our lives. Meg kept in touch with Anita through correspondence and they were reunited at the beach every summer for the next five years. In 1968, Anita moved away and she and Meg lost contact with one another. When Meg was a junior in high school, she took a parttime job and did not have

time to go to the beach. Her brother Jack enlisted in the army and went to fight in Vietnam. He returned home safely to his family, but he died from leukemia three years later. Meg’s sister Kelly married at an early age and moved to Ohio where she still lives today with her husband and family. “The days at the beach are no more, but just mere memories in my mind. Although we spent many summers at the beach, the most memorable one was the summer of 1963 because I made a new friend that summer who assisted me in improving my swimming, and had the most fun ever with very special people,” Meg said. “It’s the remembrance of seashells and sand castles, red bows and bathing caps, ice-cream cones and snow cones, picnic baskets and umbrellas, storytelling and sand sculpture contests, but most of all it’s the laughter and good times that made my summers at the beach so special.” When the actions of a particular event or era are over and we look back in history, we understand more or less what has taken place by reading or studying about it, or listening to stories told by the people who lived during those times. Spending summers at the beach was and still is a favorite pastime for many to do as a way to escape the heat and humidity during the summer months. It’s a place to relax, go swimming, get a tan, enjoy picnic lunches, and make new friends just like Meg did several decades ago. Today, Meg still lives in North Haven, and she takes her grandson to the same beach that she went to when she was young. She and her grandson collect seashells and build sand castles. When Meg walks the boardwalk, she can picture in her mind a group of children sitting in a circle enjoying an ice-cream or snow cone and laughing without a care in the world. She has stored these memories in the archives of her mind, and is determined for as long as she can to remember and to share them with

future generations. Meg’s memories of spending her summers at the beach, especially the summer of 1963, bring a feeling of comfort and hope that she keeps in her heart. These memories of days gone by also depict what we were, where we have been, and who we are. It is this purpose of not forgetting that makes us remember, so while we can, we should remember when.
