The North Haven Fair added a little British flair for its 73rd annual four-day event at the fairgrounds on Route 5. A Saturday night downpour didn’t dampen the crowd’s enthusiasm, and by Sunday afternoon, September sunshine drew a big closing day crowd. “Considering the rain and the weather, we were surprised with the people who came out to support the fair,” North Haven Fair Association board member Julia Pohoda said. Pohoda has been a part of the fair for 47 years, including years that her husband served as president. Pohoda said a large crowd started gathering Saturday afternoon staking lawn chairs See Fair / Page 24

The North Haven Fire Commission named Lt. Paul Januszewski, a 14-year veteran of the force, as the new fire chief. He replaces Vincent Landisio, who retired Aug. 31. The commission announced its decision Sept. 10 and Januszewski took over as chief Sept. 11. A swearing in ceremony is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 18. Pat Nuzzolillo, chairman of the Fire Commission, said, “We made the decision last night and voted 3-2 in favor of Paul Januszewski as active chief, effective immediately.” Nuzzolillo said Januszewski was one of three candidates for the position, all internal applicants.

Day of Wine & Roses preview held

Fall coat drive is underway

By Ken Liebeskind The North Haven Citizen

A preview of the Day of Wine & Roses event, set for Sunday, Sept. 27, took place at Forget-Me-Not Florist Thursday, Sept. 3 with the Winemakers Picnic featuring a few of the winemakers who will compete on the big day. Marie Carofino from North Haven and her friend Betsy Fede from Cheshire sipped vino at the picnic with a few other winemakers and members of the Rotary Club, who host the Day of Wine & Roses event, which is expected to raise $25,000 to $30,000 for Rotary Club charities. Carofino and Fede make cabernet and pinot noir wines that Day of Wine & Roses attendees can sample and vote on in the people’s choice segment of the awards contest. “I’ve been in competition for five years and won a few trophies,” Carofino said. “I was the first female member and president of the Rotary Club.

The North Haven Police Department will receive more than $3,000 from the Department of Justice’s Bulletproof Vest Partnership, which will be used to purchase new bulletproof vests for town officers. “The 2015 award is $3,339.33, which is 50 percent of what is needed to buy nine vests for this cycle,” police spokesman Kevin Glenn said. Glenn said the federal grant is an annual program. “Last year we replaced 26 vests and 50 percent of that was covered from BVP. All sworn members are issued body armor.” “Funding should never be a barrier to keeping our first responders safe, and we applaud the Justice Department for their longstanding investment in the safety of our police officers,” the state’s U.S. Senators and members of Congress said in a news release last week. — Ken Liebeskind

Falls Prevention Day Sept. 24 senior citizens. “Every 13 seconds, an older adult is seen in an emergency department for a fall-related injury,” said Christine Kasinskas, a clinical assistant professor of physical therapy at Quinnipiac and an event

organizer. “This event seeks to raise awareness about how to prevent fall-related injuries among older adults.” Participants will visit a model apartment on campus that will be set up with fall risks such as rugs that aren’t properly anchored or walkers that are poorly maintained. They also will learn how installing additional lighting and grab bars in key areas will help reduce falls. Bone density and blood pressure screenings also will be offered. In addition to keeping their homes safe, participants will learn about the importance of finding a good balance and exercise program; asking their health care provider to perform an assessment on their risk for a fall; monitoring medications with physicians or pharmacists; and having regular vision and hearing checks. Quinnipiac students from the schools of medicine, nursing and health sciences will take part in a panel discussion on preventing falls and present posters on their research on falls.

Sports No shaking it off

The North Haven High School football team trounced Jonathan Law 56-28 in its season opener. | Ken Liebeskind / The North Haven Citizen

Indians kick off the football season with a dominant win By Ken Liebeskind The North Haven Citizen

The North Haven High School football team kicked off its 2015 season with a 5628 win over Jonathan Law Friday, Sept. 11 at Mike Vanacore Field. The victors were led by senior captain Mike Montano, who scored five firsthalf touchdowns. Montano rested the entire second half, which gave the Lawmen a chance to come back. After trailing 49-0 at halftime, the visitors scored 28 second-half points, but the Indians held on for a convincing opening game victory. “We have a veteran squad,”

North Haven coach Anthony Sagnella said. “The first half was very fast paced, we got out fast.” The coach downplayed Montano’s dominance, saying, “He had good blockers in front of him. Everyone played well and they were good at opening holes.” The Indians scored their first two touchdowns in three plays following Lawmen turnovers. Montano raced for a 47yard TD on the second play from scrimmage following a Lawmen fumble and junior quarterback Jack Steinman threw a 25-yard pass to senior Jeremy Imperati on

the first play following an interception. The Indians lit up the scoreboard for seven firsthalf touchdowns with junior Tom Dodge returning a punt 50 yards for a score, Montano running and catching a pass for additional scores and junior Max Sullivan scoring on a 25-yard run. Montano’s brother, Mark, a sophomore, scored the team’s only second-half touchdown, on a 20-yard run. Senior kicker Sabrina Fronte converted all of her extra point attempts. North Haven’s next game is Friday, Sept. 18, at home against Sheehan at 7 p.m.

Football fans park in high school lot By Ken Liebeskind The North Haven Citizen

A festive crowd enjoyed the North Haven High School football team’s first game of the season on Friday, Sept. 11 after parking their cars in the high school lot and walking past the middle school to Mike Vanacore Field. “The middle school lot is

closed due to reconstruction and we had to rearrange parking at football games,” said Anita Anderson, Board of Education chairwoman. The access road from Bailey Road to the middle school was closed to all traffic during the game. Spectators were routed from the NHHS parking lot to Mike Vanacore Field on a new walkway. A few motor

carts transported spectators to the field and back to the high school parking lot after the game. “Safety is the No. 1 thing, and we are doing our best to inform people of the changes due to construction,” Anderson said. There was additional police presence in the parking area as well.

Readers of a certain age will recall a time when concussion awareness in athletics simply did not exist. Those were days when an athlete wobbly from a hit would “shake it off” and get back at it, and coaches would question a player’s mettle if they didn’t. “You’re fine. You just got your bell rung,” was often their sage advice. “The team needs you out there.” Now, we know how unwise that tough-it-out philosophy is, and how dangerous concussions can be. Regarding the long-term consequences of multiple concussions, the website states that: “Not only can multiple traumatic incidents contribute to the development of mild cognitive impairments, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, and other adverse outcomes, but a storied concussion history can also cause post-concussion syndrome. “While we are still elucidating the causes of these long term effects, it is imperative that a person fully recover from one concussion before risking a subsequent one. “Failing to do so adequately can lead to additional neurologic damage.” While concussions are a real possibility in most sports, the threat, not surprisingly, is greatest in football. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put the odds of a football player sustaining a concussion at a

staggering 75 percent. Thankfully, the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference is doing its part to keep high school football players in our state safe. New this season, the CIAC has enacted several measures meant to reduce the risk of injuries, including the dreaded concussion. As reported in the Record-Journal, “Starting with the Sunday before Thanksg iv i n g a n d co n t i n u i n g through the playoffs, there can be no live contact — defined as drills or game simulations conducted at full speed, in full pads, in which players are tackled to the ground (as compared to ‘wrap’ or ‘thud’ contact in which players remain on their feet). “Also, a bye week is now a part of every team’s schedule, which is capped at 10 regular-season games. During the bye week, there can be no live contact during practice.” In other football changes, the CIAC shortened the preseason, and made it a no-no for a youngster to play in more than six quarters in any one-week period or to participate at more than two levels of play in any one-week period. The logic there being, the less time spent in pads, the less chance for injury. We applaud the CIAC’s decision to tweak its football rules and schedule. The changes will help keep players out of harms way. Shaking it off certainly isn’t the answer.

times that we spend the least amount of time on self-care. Yet that’s when we need it the most. Seek out a support system. Although the journey is yours, you don’t have to go at it alone. Acknowledge your role in the situation and forgive yourself, if you need forgiving. If you need to forgive the other person, but can’t do it right way, put it on your to-do list. Surrender your idea of what things are supposed to be like. Revisit past challenges. Remind yourself of the inner strength that got you through other circumstances. Today’s problem might be bigger or harder, but you already have everything you need to get through this. Change your perspective – endings don’t have to mean “the end.” Endings can also mean new beginnings. It all depends on how you look at it. Be grateful for what is good and right in your life. Remind yourself you don’t have to have everything figured out today. Keep your heart open. You never know what life has in store next.
