Beating the heat at Wharton Brook park By Everett Bishop The Citizen

WALLINGFORD — Some families made the most of a long Fourth of July holiday weekend at Wharton Brook State Park. The sun was shining, and the smell of burgers and hot dogs sizzling on the grill filled the air. “I’m here with my family. Dad is out fishing and the

kids are out swimming,” said Ada Cassa as she prepared lunch. “I like that it’s quiet. Nice and quiet.”

Some played soccer while waiting for the food to cook. Others just sat around to chat.

People sat on the beach watching as their kids jumped in and out of the water, swimming to avoid the heat last week.

“Yeah we’re here cooking. Getting ready to eat,” said Manny Stroud, sitting with his family in the shade. “We’re going to meet some family later and then head down to the beach.”

Just up the hill from the beach, several families were spread out under the shade getting ready to have lunch.

Owners of the New Haven restaurant Adriana’s are planning to open a new eatery in North Haven. The site will occupy the space left by Leon’s, a now-closed Italian restaurant, located at 344 Washington Ave. “We’re expanding,” said Assael Monterze, a spokesperson for Adriana’s. “We are thinking of opening in September.”

As far as the name of the North Haven restaurant goes, Monterze said that will be revealed later, when the restaurant is ready to open. Monterze confirmed that “Italian-oriented” food, much like that served at Adriana’s, will be served at the North Haven site and that the restaurant will be similar to Adriana’s in serving style and atmosphere. 203-317-2444

Space for after-school program approved By Everett Bishop The Citizen

The Planning and Zoning Commission has approved Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club’s application to adapt space for after-school programming by subdividing the Hope Christian Church on Montowese Avenue. The plan for this new unit was approved July 1

after traffic issues and enrollment capacity were addressed. “We came up with a plan to keep traffic minimalized,” said Erik Scaranuzzo, chairman of the Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club’s steering committee. “We were also approved to give aid to about 70 kids at max capacity.” See Program, A12

Guaranteed Fixed-Rate CD



Annual Percentage Yield for a 7-month term with new money deposits of at least $25,0002

Enroll in a branch by August 30, 2019. Business owner? Ask about our business savings rates.

Offers available in CT, DE, FL, NJ, NY, and PA. Portfolio by Wells Fargo® customers are eligible to receive an additional bonus interest rate on these accounts.3





1. To qualify for the advertised APY, you must enroll your new or existing Platinum Savings account in this offer between 07/08/2019 and 08/30/2019 by speaking to a banker and requesting the special rate. Offer is subject to change at any time, without notice, and is available only to Platinum Savings customers in the following states: CT, DE, FL, NJ, NY, PA. In order to earn the Special Interest Rate of 1.98% (Special Rate), you must deposit $25,000 in new money to the enrolled savings account and maintain a minimum daily account balance of $25,000 throughout the promotional interest rate period. “New money” is money from sources outside of the customer’s current relationship with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. or its affiliates (which includes all deposit, brokerage and loan/credit accounts). The corresponding Annual Percentage Yield (APY) for this offer is 2.00%. The Special Rate will be applied to the enrolled savings account for a period of 12 months, starting on the date the account is enrolled in the offer. However, for any day during that 12 month period that the daily account balance is less than the $25,000, the enrolled account will not be eligible for the Special Rate and will instead earn the applicable Standard Interest Rate for a Platinum Savings account. As of 05/31/2019, the Standard Interest Rate and APY for a Platinum Savings account in CT, FL, NJ and NY with an account balance of $0.01 and above is 0.05% (0.05% APY); and for a Platinum Savings account in DE and PA with an account balance of $0.01 to $99,999.99 is 0.05% (0.05% APY) and with an account balance of $100,000 and above is 0.10% (0.10% APY). Each tier shown reflects the current minimum daily collected balance required to obtain the applicable APY. Interest is compounded daily and paid monthly. The amount of interest earned is based on the daily collected balances in the account. Upon the expiration of the 12 month promotional period, then-current Standard Interest Rates apply. Minimum to open a Platinum Savings account is $25. A monthly service fee of $12 applies in any month the account falls below a $3,500 minimum daily balance. Fees may reduce earnings. Interest rates are variable and subject to change without notice. Wells Fargo may limit the amount you deposit to a Platinum Savings account to an aggregate of $1 million. 2. Available in-branch only; you must speak with a banker to request the special rate. Annual Percentage Yield (APY) is effective for accounts opened between 07/08/2019 and 08/30/2019 and requires a minimum of $25,000 in new money brought to Wells Fargo. “New money” is money from sources outside of the customer’s current relationship with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. or its affiliates (which includes deposit, brokerage and loan/credit accounts). Public Funds and Wholesale accounts are not eligible for this offer. APY assumes interest remains on deposit until maturity. Interest is compounded daily. Payment of interest on CDs is based on term: For terms less than 12 months (365 days), interest may be paid monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or at maturity (the end of the term). For terms of 12 months or more, interest may be paid monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually. A penalty for early withdrawal will be imposed and could reduce earnings on this account. Special Rates are applicable to the initial term of the CD only. At maturity, the special rate CD will automatically renew for a term of 6 months, at the interest rate and APY in effect for CDs on renewal date not subject to a Special Rate, unless the Bank has notified you otherwise. 1., 2. Due to the new money requirement, new accounts may only be opened at your local branch and you must speak to a banker to request the special rate offers for both new and existing accounts. Wells Fargo reserves the right to modify or discontinue the offer at any time without notice. Minimum new money deposit requirement of at least $25,000 is for this offer only and cannot be transferred to another account to qualify for any other consumer deposit offer. If you wish to take advantage of another consumer deposit offer requiring a minimum new money deposit, you will be required to do so with another new money deposit as stated in the offer requirements and qualifications. Offer cannot be: • Combined with any other consumer deposit offer. • Reproduced, purchased, sold, transferred, or traded. 3. The Portfolio by Wells Fargo program has a $30 monthly service fee, which can be avoided when you have one of the following qualifying balances: $25,000 or more in qualifying linked bank deposit accounts (checking, savings, CDs, FDIC-insured IRAs) or $50,000 or more in any combination of qualifying linked banking, brokerage (available through Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC) and credit balances (including 10% of mortgage balances, certain mortgages not eligible). If the Portfolio by Wells Fargo relationship is terminated, the bonus interest rate on all eligible savings accounts, and discounts or fee waivers on other products and services, will discontinue and revert to the Bank’s then-current applicable standard interest rate or fee. For bonus interest rates on time accounts, this change will occur upon renewal. If the Portfolio by Wells Fargo relationship is terminated, the remaining unlinked Wells Fargo Portfolio Checking or Wells Fargo Prime Checking account will be converted to another checking product or closed. © 2019 Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.

Chief discusses damaged fire truck By Everett Bishop The Citizen

The North Haven Fire Department is “actively negotiating” with insurance companies over a quote it received to repair damages to a fire engine. According to fire chief Paul Januszewski, the damage is “exceeding $50,000.” On Sunday, June 9, at approximately 2:30 a.m., a North Haven fire engine was struck on its rear edge by an oncoming vehicle on I-91 near exit 10. The engine was taken out of service indefinitely. At a special meeting of the fire commission held on June 18, Januszewski said the engine was serving as a “blocking apparatus” when it was hit.

Januszewski said the fire department is working with insurance adjusters in order to see what truck damage would be covered.

Welcome, Dr. Patrick Tomak Neurological Surgeon

“It’s a lot like a regular car accident,” he said, “except in this case, time is of the essence.” Having had to take the engine out of commission, the department was left with only two. One of those vehicles has what Januszewski described as “ongoing maintenance issues” and the other is 32 years old. National Fire Protection Association regulations state that engines should be decommissioned after 25 years. See Truck, A6


“Had this apparatus not been there, it’s very possible

that we would have had firefighters struck by a car,” the chief said.
