Lazaroff family honored for decades of support By Daniel Jackson

The North Haven Citizen

A late-summer sun was shining in the west as players dressed in maroon warmed up at the Max Sinoway baseball fields. They were there to play ball. Aluminum bats clinked and players tossed baseballs to and fro. Arnold Lazaroff sat at a picnic table, apart from the bustle of pre-game preparations. The sleeves on his blue shirt were folded up twice. Last year, the Max Sinoway Board named field number one in the four-field complex after his family. Today, Arnold Lazaroff was here to attend the unveiling of a sign naming the field. Ever y com mun ity has named places where it gathers after members of the community. It’s not every day that a community decides to name a place, but

Little League baseball players unveil the new sign naming on of their fields after the Lazaroff family, on of their long-time supporters. | (Daniel Jackson/North Haven Citizen) Friday, Sept. 20 at 5 p.m. was such a time. The Lazaroff family has operated Arnold’s Jewelers on Washington Avenue for 56 years.

Arnold Lazaroff said his family has contributed and participated in the Max Sinoway program for 35, 45 years. They also sponsor teams.

Golden sunlight shines through faded red, white and blue buntings on the outfield fence on the Lazaroff Family Field. Near the scoreboard, a gray tarp covers a sign.

The teams gather around and Arnold Lazaroff walked over with his son, Larry Lazaroff. First Selectman Mike Freda also came. The Lazaroff family is part of the fabric of the baseball league, Freda told the athletes, coaches and parents gathered. Larry Lazaroff told them he was humbled and gratified, that its “a two-way street,” where the family has given to the community, but the community has also given to them. The baseball players push the tarp over the fence, unveiling the sign that reads “Lazaroff Family Field.” The people clap. “Okay junior major guys, you gotta warm up. You got a game in 10 minutes,” said Chip Meyers, coaching director on the Max Sinoway Board. Eventually the sign will be See Lazaroff / Page 2

Schools make security upgrades By Daniel Jackson North Haven Citizen

The school shooting in Sandy Hook Dec. 14 changed how schools approach security. Across the state, schools have been installing security upgrades like bullet-proof glass and solid-core doors. North Haven public school district is no different. “We have very good security measures at our schools,” said Anita Anderson, Board of Education chair, “but Sandy Hook changed everything and now we look at everything with a different view.” Anderson said the school district has installed buzzer systems at the entrance of the schools and put up new security cameras. Now, the BOE is looking to increase the police presence at the schools and have officers randomly go into schools, for example. “Certain things will be more noticeable,”

Anderson said. Recently, the State of Connecticut has partially reimbursed North Haven’s efforts with a grant of $66,000 from the School Security Competitive Grant Program. The Connecticut General Assembly set up the grant through of the Gun Violence and Children’s Safety Act, the legislation which also changed Connecticut’s gun laws. The funding, administered by the Department of Emergency Service and Public Protection, totaled $5 million and the funds went to 36 school districts and 169 schools. The school district applied to the grant because it fit with its overall strategy. “We’re looking to apply for as many grants as possible to help with our budget,” Anderson said. Kristine Carling, director of business and op- As part of the security system upgrade, the erations in the district, said the district applied school district installed a card-swipe system to the grant in July.

Now, people buzz in, and security cameras watch over the building. But the school is a nonprofit. It does not get funding, and the grant North Haven School District applied for does not apply to private, parochial or charter schools. However, “we did need to take steps” to improve security, Zunda said. The school on State St. teaches about 19 students from the ages of 5 to 21 who have social, emotional or behavioral issues. Public schools will refer students who “haven’t met with success despite being given accommodations and modifications,” said Zunda. The Elizabeth Ives is a state-approved institution that follows the rules and regulations issued by the state and federal governments, said Zunda. This year, they are implementing Common Core. With the new year came new security. The school installed new hardware “in stages over the break.” After students returned, the school tried to normalize the new security procedures as much as possible, Zunda said. “I find it sad that we have to go here,” she said.

tails of the school’s security plan. The district didn’t get all the reimbursement it requested from the state. Carling said the town didn’t get funding to upgrade the high school. However, the state will offer two more rounds of funding in the next year, totaling $10 million, towards school security upgrades. “We’ll stay on file with them,” Carling said, “and then they’ll let us know if we qualify in the second round.” Gov. Dannel Malloy said after the Dec. 14 shooting, many towns moved quickly to beef up security. “We will never be able to prevent every random act,” he said in a statement, “but we can take the steps necessary to make sure that our children and our teachers are as safe as possible. This funding allows districts with the most need to implement modern security measures that will make schools safer.” However, the grants only cover public school districts. Lina Zunda, director of Elizabeth Ives School, said her school used to keep its front door open. Like the public-schools, the Elizabeth Ives made security upgrades.

More Democrats than Republicans in town The North Haven Citizen

38153R

The list of North Haven voters kept by the registrar of voters fluctuates month to month because new voters are added, other voters pass away or residents leave town. In the past, the number of voters in each political party was about equal. The lists between registered Democrats and Republican were within 30 voters of each other, said Democrat Registrar of Voters Patricia Jackson-Marshall. But that changed around 2008. It was “the Obama effect,” she said. “Then it started pulling away,” she said. As of Sept. 6, there are 92 more registered Democrats than Republicans in a town where the Republican Party has the majority on every board. On the eve of the Sept. 10 primary between Sally Buemi and Alan Sturtz to decide who would receive their party’s nomination for the Board of Selectman, the Registrars of Voters counted the voters in town. Of the 15,333 voters in North Haven, 3,755 were registered with the Democratic Party. 3,663 voters were with the Republican Party and 64 voters registered with an “other” party like the Green or Libertarian Party. The rest — 7,851 voters — were unaffiliated. Besides moves, death and new voters, Jackson-Marshall

joined the Democrat party in town. The Republican party lost six members. Jackson-Marshall said if a voter registered in one party switches parties, state voting laws prevent that person from voting in a primary for 90 days. Unaffiliated voters, however, can register for a party by noon the day before a primary and vote the next day. Party-switching to sway a larger election is not effective, Jackson-Marshall said, because its not coordinated and only a handful of voters do it. Even without a slender, 92-person lead, the equal number of voters in the town’s parties should lead to competitive elections, in theory at least. However, Democratic Town Committee Chair Walt Spader said, the “unaffiliated voters in town, in polling and in practice, tend to vote more conservatively.” He added Democrats in Leaders in the Democrat Party in town plan the campaign town turn out to the polls in strategy for Alan Sturtz campaign for the primary election held lower numbers.

said a group of unaffiliated voters will join a political party on the eve of primary elections. For some voters, they want to vote every chance they can get. For others, its a political strategy, she said, where voters that support one party to join the opposite party in order to vote in the primary for the candidate they think will do worse against their party’s candidate. Jackson-Marshall said she sees voters switching before larger primary races, such as a primary to decide a senator, but it happened during this municipal primary. When the Registrars of Voters counted the voter list of North Haven on Aug. 1 — three days before Buemi even submitted her petition challenging her party’s nomination for the BOS — there were 3,735 Democratic voters and 3,669 Republican voters. From the time that Buemi announced her campaign to the eve of the primary, 20 people

Half of union contracts signed By Ken Liebeskind

Special to the Citizen

At the Board of Finance meeting Sept. 18, First Selectman Michael Freda said the town signed another union contract. The supervisors union signed recently, increasing the number of signed unions to three, along with the police and fire departments. That leaves three more to sign – public works, the library and clerical workers. Freda said public works is

on the verge of signing and all signed contracts conform to the town’s initiative to lower insurance costs and eliminate pensions for new employees that will be replaced by a 401K plan. “The goal is to be on one insurance plan that will save the town hundreds of thousands of dollars and a 401K plan that will save 26 percent of new salaries,” Freda said. The board also discussed an idea by Michael Hallahan, a board member to amend the

He suggested minor changes to the charter that would facilitate the board’s activities, but Freda and other board members stated that the town’s charter and town operations are generally smooth and don’t need to be amended. Freda noted how difficult it is to amend a town charter, but said if there is public interest

in doing so, he would get the ball rolling, which would require a charter revision committee to oversee the changes. During that meeting, Freda announced to the board that the state awarded a $66,000 school security grant that will help pay for upgrades to the elementary schools.

Big changes eyed for state universities, colleges By Susan Haigh Associated Press

In an interview with The Associated Press, Gregory Gray said he envisions the 17 schools will operate similar to the State University of New York system, where there is collaboration and cooperation among 64 different campuses. Gray is a former dean in the SUNY system, where he worked earlier in his career. “It worked well over there and I think it can work well here,” said Gray, during a visit to Eastern Connecticut State

He said the town applied recently and with the help David Yaccarino and other state legislators were able to facilitate the grant.

He is in the middle of touring the four state universities and the 12 community colleges that make up the recently created ConnSCU system. Previously, the state universities, community colleges and the online Charter Oak State College were all governed separately, serving a total of nearly 100,000 students. While the long-range plan for the new system is still being crafted, Gray foresees some major themes. For example, he said the presidents of the four state universities will likely recommend ways to enhance their schools’ specific areas of excellence. For example, he said ECSU is recognized regionally for its strength as a liberal arts school. Gray said he hopes to see ECSU eventually recognized nationally as a strong liberal arts institution. He also pointed to the engineering program at Central Connecticut State University as another strength that can be played up. Gray said the ultimate plan, expected to be presented to state lawmakers and at town hall-style meetings to gather input from stakeholders, will place an even greater focus on See Changes / Page 18

Democrats mary Sept. 10, only 11.4 percent of the party’s voters made it to the polls. An average primary turnout, according to the Registrar of Voters. But to add to the oddity, North Haven votes Democratic in larger elections, Spader said. For example, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal won North Haven. This is because the town tends to be socially liberal and fiscally conservative, he said. The Democratic party tries to carry the momentum created by the larger presidential and senate races into the municipal elections. Sen. Blumenthal visited the North Haven Fair at the beginning of the month, greeting voters to “try to keep them engaged for our benefit,” Spader said So far, he said the party has not found a solution. Even when he worked at the Democratic Party Headquarters in Hartford from 1996 to 2000, low voter turnout and interest in only state and federal Democratic candidates “was a reality back then, too,” Spader said. Carolyn Wright, Republican Town Committee chair, said historically, the number of Republicans and Democrats go back and forth. The registrar of voters told her that before a primary, the number of registered voters in parties rises. After the election, the numbers usually return to

pre-primary levels, Wright is monitoring the numbers. “I asked her to keep me posted,” Wright said. Historically, Wright said, the town has had Republican majorities on most of the town’s boards ever since the Civil War. There were only two instances — one back in 20072009 — where Democrats controlled the town. The big factor of elections is the unaffiliated voters, the ones that are likely to switch their votes and both parties cater to. Recently, the Republican party began an outreach campaign to new residents. Wright said more and more people are moving to and from towns, instead of growing up and living in the same place. When people move into town, wanting a “North Haven Life,” Wright said the party tries to let them know that this life is “because of a republican administration.” Republicans run the town better, she said. “We’re known for keeping taxes down, the roads good and the schools good,” she said. However, Democrats run a different campaign at a state and national level. They run popular candidates like Bill Clinton and President Barack Obama. Voters want to vote for those kinds of candidates, she said, and the party promotes its candidates.

the Board of Finance. Next the issue of the North Haven Middle School came up. A group of Diversified Tech Consultants laid out the options for renovation or replacement of the middle school, which was built in 1960 and now needs massive renovation or replacement.

Before consultants outlined the options, school S u p e r i n t e n d e n t Ro b e r t Cronin and middle school Principal Philip Piazza addressed the problem. “Over the past 12 months we’ve had to repair a large portion of the roof to stop the leaking and upgrade the boilers to insure consistent

Plans building committee that was announced at the meeting was finalized and First Selectman Michael Freda said he could submit his qualifications to the selectmen who could add him to the committee. Another resident asked what would happen to students while the school is being renovated and a consultant said there would be a phasing scenario where portable classrooms would be used. As to the impact a new middle school would have on tax rates, Freda said the town would attempt to keep the debt service low as it has done in the past to avoid large tax increases. At the end of the meeting the town approved a nine-member committee that Freda said had been carefully selected to represent all demographics. Public hearings are planned for November and January with a referendum next June. Freda said public hearings will provide an opportunity for residents to interact with the committee and provide their ideas. The committee will determine the best option, which will be placed on referendum for a June vote.

monitors with LED projectors in every classroom. “Students have said they don’t feel the school is safe due to leaks and mold,” he said. “They say the school needs tech upgrades, the school is outdated and the computers are slow. It’s not a good environment to learn.” Consultants said there are four options for the middle school: renovate the existing school; renovate the Gateway campus and move the school there; construct a new school building on Bailey Road and demolish parts of the existing school and renovate, which is the hybrid solution. They briefly discussed each of the options and priced them, with total costs for each option and the town’s portion after state grants. The cost of a new school would be $60.5 million, slightly less than the cost of renovation, $61.4 million, although the town’s share for a new school would be higher because state reimbursements are 29.64 percent for new construction compared with 39.64 percent for renovation. The town’s cost of a new school would be $46.7 million, compared with $41.4 million for renovation. Residents commented on the presentation with one questioning the best place for a new school to be built. He questioned plans for new athletic fields that were announced by the consultants, stating they might not be regulation fields because there isn’t enough acreage for them. He asked whether the nine-member middle school

the national initiative. Every year it gets bigger. Last year’s Family Day inspired a Family Day Contest among Catholic school students, who were asked to create an original poster portraying what family dinner meant to them. The winner was Mikayla Naranjo whose poster was chosen to promote “Family Day” throughout the Archdiocese this year. She is a seventh grade student at St. Mary-St. Michael School in Derby. She won an iPod. The Office of Religious Education and Evangelization will coordinate the poster contest for 2014. The Office of Catholic Schools is sponsoring a video

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis has warned that the Catholic Church’s moral structure might “fall like a house of cards” if it doesn’t balance its divisive rules about abortion, gays and contraception with the greater need to make it a merciful, more welcoming place for all. Six months into his papacy, Francis set out his vision for the church and his priorities as pope in a lengthy and remarkably blunt interview with La Civilta Cattolica, the Italian Jesuit magazine. It was

published simultaneously Thursday, Sept. 19, in Jesuit journals in 16 countries, including America magazine in the U.S. In the 12,000-word article, Francis expands on his ground-breaking comments over the summer about gays and acknowledges some of his own faults. He sheds light on his favorite composers, artists, authors and films (Mozart, Caravaggio, Dostoevsky and Fellini’s “La Strada”) and says he prays even while at the dentist’s office. But his vision of what the church should be stands out, primarily because it contrasts so sharply with many

of the priorities of his immediate predecessors, John Paul II and Benedict XVI. They were both intellectuals for whom doctrine was paramount, an orientation that guided the selection of a generation of bishops and cardinals around the globe. Francis said the dogmatic and the moral teachings of the church were not all equivalent. “The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently,” Francis said. “We have to find a new balance; See Church/ Page 11

Church From Page 10

otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel.” Rather, he said, the Catholic Church must be like a “field hospital after battle,” healing the wounds of its faithful and going out to find those who have been hurt, excluded or have fallen away. “It is useless to ask a seriously injured person if he has high cholesterol and about the level of his blood sugars!” Francis said. “You have to heal his wounds. Then we can talk about everything else.” “The church sometimes has locked itself up in small things, in small-minded rules,” he lamented. “The most important thing is the first proclamation: Jesus Christ has saved you. And the ministers of the church must be ministers of mercy above all.” The admonition is likely to have sharp reverberations in the United States, where some bishops have already publicly voiced dismay that Francis hasn’t hammered home church teaching on abortion, contraception and homosexuality — areas of the culture wars where U.S. bishops often put themselves on the front lines. U.S. bishops were also behind Benedict’s crackdown on American nuns, who were accused of letting doctrine take a backseat to their social justice work caring for the poor — precisely the priority that Francis is endorsing. Earlier this month, Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island, said in an interview with his diocesan newspaper that he was “a little bit disappointed” that Francis hadn’t addressed abortion since being elected. Francis acknowledged that he had been “reprimanded” for not speaking out on such issues. But he said he didn’t need to. “We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible,” he said. “The See Church/ Page 12

James Martin, editor at large for America magazine. “The America interview shows a gentle pastor who looks upon people as individuals, not categories.” It also shows a very human Francis: He seemingly had no qualms about admitting that his tenure as superior of Argentina’s Jesuit order in the 1970s — starting at the “crazy” age of 36 — was difficult because of his “authoritarian” temperament. “I have never been a rightwinger.

asked about gay priests. “Who am I to judge?” about the sexual orientation of priests, as long as they are searching for God and have good will, he responded. Francis noted in the latest interview that he had merely repeated church teaching during that press conference (though he again neglected to repeat church teaching that says while homosexuals should be treated with dignity and respect, homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered.”) But he continued: “A person once asked me, in a provocative manner, if I approved of homosexuality. I replied with another question: ‘Tell me: when God looks at a gay person, does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person?’ “We must always consider the person. In life, God accompanies persons, and we must accompany them, starting from their situation. It is necessary to accompany them with mercy. When that happens, the Holy Spirit inspires the priest to say the right thing.” The key, he said, is for the church to welcome, not exclude and show mercy, not condemnation. “This church with which we should be thinking is the home of all, not a small chapel that can hold only a small group of selected people. We must not reduce the bosom of the universal church to a nest protecting our mediocrity,” he said.

Q & A with Board of Education candidates Earlier this month, The North Haven Citizen emailed candidates running for the Board of Education. We asked: would they fill out a short questionnaire? With Election Day a few weeks away, we wanted to compile a quick-guide of all the candidates to help you, the voter, learn more about the candidates and make a decision on who you will back this November. Ten people are running for the Board of Education this year. After the candidates replied with their answers, we arranged the candidates in reverse alphabetical order and published the first five interviews in this edition of the paper. We will feature the rest of the candidates in our Oct. 4 edition of The Citizen. Every candidate was asked the same questions. We told them to keep their answers to each question short — 50 words or less. So without further ado and in their own words: here come the candidates. —The Citizen Editors

The North Haven Citizen | northhavencitizen.com

Opinion Commentary: Candidates for Board of Education Randi Petersen

Age: 43 Occupation: Reading Tutor for the Stratford Public Schools and Adjunct Professor for the University of Saint Joseph Incumbent? Yes, I am an incumbent. I was appointed to the Board in December 2012. Best way for voters to contact you: Randi Best way Petersen for voters to contact me would be through the Board of Education website email: Petersen.Randi@north-haven.k12.ct.us Party: Republican Why do you want to be a BOE member? I want to remain on the North Haven Board of Education because I know my experience in public and higher education, my commitment to the Board and its related committees, as well as my personal determination as a mother to strengthen our school system will benefit all of our children. What will you bring (skills, experience, etc.) to the BOE that will enhance the board? My experience includes being a public school classroom teacher, a reading

teacher, a high school special education job coach, and an adjunct professor in higher education. I am a team player but will also invite leadership roles. I always had the best interests of all students in mind and will continue to do so should I get re-elected. What is the biggest issue that North Haven schools face? At a time when budgets are tight and needs are many, it is necessary to carefully look at where our money is being spent, where we can save, and where we can spend the monies we do have in places that will make the biggest and most significant difference for as many students as possible. If elected, what will be your main goal? If elected, my main goal will be to work to ensure a quality and consistent education for every student throughout the North Haven Public Schools. Any hobbies or interests? Not really any hobbies but my family and I enjoy taking trips to NYC, going to Yankee Stadium (which has certainly seen better seasons), and visiting the Jersey Shore! What music is on your iPod? I have a variety of music on my IPod…Billy Joel, Nickelback, Dave Matthews, Def Leppard, Daughtry, Springsteen, Metallica, but being a Jersey Girl, Bon Jovi trumps them all!

Dorothy Logan

Age: 61 Occupation: Work site Coordinator/Job Coach, Re t i re d ( 20 1 3 ) S p e c i a l Education Teacher Incumbent: No Contact Information: dotmlogan@gmail.com Party Affiliation: Democrat W hy d o yo u wa n t to be a BOE member? The reason for my canDorothy didacy, in reLogan flecting on my decision to retire from teaching, was my recurring thought that I never wanted to retire from being a child/ student advocate and hope to continue to provide our young with the skills and tools to be able to thrive in the twenty-first century. What will you bring (skills, experience, etc.) to the BOE that will enhance the board? I will bring more than 25 years in education as a special teacher. Serving on The Arc Executive Board, Consumer Representative for North Haven to the Regional Mental Health Board and CEA’s Human and Civil Rights Commission has given me much practice in knowing when to listen and the what and when of asking questions. What is the biggest issue that North Haven schools face? Declining enrollment. Just as districts plan for an increasing enrollment so they must plan for the impact of a student population decrease. North Haven student population has been in a decline for several years and short and long-term planning for this decrease needs to continue. If elected, what will be your main goal? My goal is to fulfill the duties of a BOE member. The main responsibilities are adopt policies, prepare and present a budget to the Town, and employ, retain and evaluate a qualified superintendent. An important function is communicat-

ing with the public to receive input, explain policy and maintain and build support for public education. Any hobbies or interests? My hobbies and interests include movies, Irish history, nature, and soup making. What music is on your iPod? Music on my IPod includes Fleetwood Mac, Moody Blues, Queen, Earth, Wind and Fire, ELO, Enya, Adele, Mumford and Sons and many one hit wonders.

Matthew Kerzner

Age: 43 Occupation: Director of Human Resources at ChemWerth Inc. Incumbent: Yes. I have been on the board since Aug 2012. Best way for voters to contact you: Best way for voters to contact me Matthew is by email: Mkerzner@ Kerzner sbcglobal.net Party: Republican Why do you want to be a BOE member? I want to be a BOE member because it is a great way to serve my fellow citizen’s in North Haven and I have a vested interest in the school district success with one daughter in fourth grade and one daughter that will be starting kindergarten next year. What will you bring (skills, experience, etc.) to the BOE that will enhance the board? I have 20 years of organizational operations and human resource expertise. I have 10 years of experience teaching at the University of New Haven. I sat on State of Conn. Department of Education Board to help develop the business curriculum for K through 12. I have extensive collective bargaining experience, resolving complex issues in the public See Candidates / Page 15

Candidates and private sector. What is the biggest issue that North Haven schools face? The biggest issue that North Haven Schools face is getting the technology infrastructure in place to meet the demands that our children need. The BOE and District are working hard on this issue but technology is not going to slow down in order for us to catch up. If elected, what will be your main goal? Give Dr. Cronin and his staff the support and tools they need to be successful. I believe a board member does not need to know everything on how to fix the problem, but be able to guide, support and challenge all BOE members, employees, PTA, and students so everyone can think out of the box in creating solutions. Any hobbies or interests? I enjoy working out, learning how to cook, spending time with my family and teaching at University of New Haven. What music is on your iPod I have a very large appreciation for music and have a diversity of music I listen to especially when I am working out that would include: Pink Floyd, Jay-Z, The Beastie Boys, Darius Rucker, and Grateful Dead.

The Friends of the North Haven Library presented its third annual altered book contest, recently. An “altered book” is a book, old or new, that has been transformed by creative means into a work of art. Creating altered books may be as simple as adding a drawing or text to a page, or as complex as creating an intricate book sculpture. The competition is open to anyone 12 years old or older. There will be a teen competition for ages 12 to 17, and an adult competition for ages 18 and older. There are no rules about how to alter the book. Books may come from any source, but please do not use a library book! There will be free used books available at the North Haven Memorial Library to take home for competition use. A r t i s t s m ay s u b mit only one entry. Employees and family members of employees of the North Haven Memorial Library and the Friends of the North Haven Library are allowed to participate, but may not win a prize. Entries must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 23. Award ceremony and reception are 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 29. Work will be judged by a local panel. There will be first ($75), second ($50), and third ($25) prize winners in both teen and adult categories.

Seniors Understanding how aging affects driving

Everyone ages differently, so there is no arbitrary cutoff as to when someone should stop driving. However, older adults are more likely to receive traffic citations and get into accidents than

younger drivers. In fact, fatal crash rates rise sharply after a driver has reached the age of 70. What causes this increase? As we age, factors such as decreased vision, impaired hearing, or slowed motor reflexes may

become a problem. You may have a chronic condition that gradually worsens with time, or you may have to adjust to a sudden change, such as a stroke. Aging tends to result in a reduction of strength, coordination, and flexibility, which can have a major impact on your ability to safely control a car. For example: --Pain or stiffness in your neck can make it harder to look over your shoulder to change lanes or look left and right at intersections to check for other traffic or pedestrians.

destrians, can also become more difficult as you lose the ability to effectively divide your attention between multiple activities. You may have driven your entire life and take great pride in your safety record, but as you age, it is critical that you realize your driving ability can change. To continue driving safely, you need to recognize that changes can happen, get help when they do, and be willing to listen if others voice concerns. --helpguide.org

Rockville Bank will open a full-service bank in North Haven as part of its move into the greater New Haven area. The FDIC and the Connecticut Department of Banking has approved a Rockville Bank branch at 117 Washington Av. The 5,000 square foot branch will open in the third quarter of 2014. According to a press release by the company, Rockville Bank plans on establishing a retail banking presence around New Haven and along the I-91 corridor — an im-

Earlier this year, a branch opening in Hamden was announced. “As we expand our footprint to the greater New Haven area,” said William Crawford, IV, CEO of Rockville Bank, “the Rockville Bank team looks forward to providing the same top-notch banking services and relationships so many of our customers in our traditional markets have benefited from for so long.”

workforce training at the community colleges. He said students will get the knowledge they need to easily fill jobs in advanced manufacturing, allied health, hospitality and other career clusters. For Charter Oak State College, Gray said he’d like to see greater use of the online school. Currently, it has only 1,600 students, which he called “a pittance.” By comparison, New York’s online college has about 30,000 students, he said. Gray said Connecticut’s school has the potential to reach a similar enrollment figure in a decade, especially if students at other schools could take online classes at Charter Oak, as

well. “The potential in Charter Oak is yet to be tapped at all,” he said. The final blueprint for ConnSCU will also include a long-term plan for overall logistics and efficiencies, such as a single academic calendar and a single student application instead of 17. Also, Gray said there’s a commitment to make it easier for students who complete their two years of community college work to transfer to the state universities as a full-fledged junior and earn a bachelor’s degree. “These things start to merge us into a true system,” he said, “instead of 17 institutions.”

HARTFORD (AP) — Data released Tuesday, Sept. 17, by the U.S. Census Bureau show the number of uninsured residents in Connecticut continues to decline as the state is poised to begin open enrollment in its new health insurance marketplace next month. The figures, based on 2012 numbers, estimate 284,000 of the state’s nearly 3.6 million residents were uninsured for the previous 12 months. Kevin Counihan, chief executive officer of the health care marketplace or exchange, known as Access Health CT, said his office has been basing its outreach efforts on an estimated 344,000 uninsured. But he said he’s “always a little suspicious of these figures,” which can be fluid, and the exchange is proceeding with its same outreach efforts to encourage people to begin signing up for coverage. “We’re being quite aggressive in our state about communication and outreach and

marketing, and we’re going to take on as many people as we can get,” he said. Open enrollment begins on Oct. 1, and insurance coverage begins on Jan. 1. Counihan said Access Health CT has a target of enrolling about 100,000 people in the first year. That figure includes people buying new policies from private insurers participating in the exchange, people eligible for Medicaid under new guidelines, people currently covered who are switching to different plans and employees of small businesses that are expected to sign up for plans offered under the exchange. Counihan said he hopes the exchange will be able to reduce the state’s number of uninsured by 25 percent in the first year. A comparison of two-year averages of Census data, compiled by the public policy think tank Connecticut Voices for Children, shows the percentage of people under age 65 in Connecticut without health insurance

North Haven slays state football giant By Kevin Pataky Special to The Citizen

The gold standard of Connecticut high school football over the last three years has been Xavier, winner of three straight CIAC Class LL championships. During that run, the Falcons won 38 of 39 games by an average of 27 points. This fall, having defeated one of the FCIAC’s top programs, Staples, by a healthy margin during Week 1, the Falcons were seen by many as the state’s best team as they rolled into North Haven. Last season, the two teams met in Middletown and Xavier won 49-12. The rematch would prove to be quite different. North Haven’s defense immediately came up big, stopping Xavier’s first drive, which allowed the Indians to score the first points of the game on a 24-yard run by senior quarterback Mike Halloran. Sabrina Fronte converted her first of six point-after kicks, and the Indians had a 7-0 lead after one quarter. After the Falcons made it

In the fourth, Xavier’s Carbone threaded, what l o o ke d l i ke, a p e rfe c t pass over the middle, but Manameit leaped high to make an interception. Halloran then connected with Kastenhuber for a 50yard touchdown over the middle to put North Haven ahead for good, 28-21. After another Falcon turnover, the Indians began to eat up the clock with their ground attack. Suraci then broke free and took off for a 45-yard touchdown to expand North Haven’s lead to 35-21. Xavier proved, however, that the game was far from over. The Falcons scored quickly on a 28-yard touchdown strike to cut their deficit to 35-28. The Indians then got back to the business of grinding it out on the ground to eat up Sophomore Mike Montano. | (Kevin Pataky/Special to The Citizen) most of what was left of the clock, and scored once more But North Haven proved when the Falcons bunched a 7-6 game, the Indians came Haven up 14-6.

and this writer can’t figure out why. In our neighboring state of New York, I used to belong to the New York Bowhunters Association but resigned my membership because of their rabid stance against just about anyone using a crossbow in New York State. In fact, it is still virtually impossible to use a crossbow legally in New York State. I wrote letters to them trying to get them to understand that the more folks we had involved in our hunting, the better off we would be. My pleas fell on deaf ears. Maybe now with the intelligent decision made by Connecticut regarding crossbow use this will encourage a like change in the Empire State, but don’t count on it. Regarding crossbow use, your ancient outdoor writer has had to revert to crossbow use last year because of arthritic arms. I had to get a doctor’s certification to get it, but at least the Connecticut DEEP was extremely helpful in allowing me to use a crossbow. Not so in New York. I once asked a New York Conservation Officer what was required for an archer to use a crossbow in the Empire State and he told me

Also, private land deer hunters are no longer limited to a 3-shell limit while hunting on said private lands for deer.

with a straight face, “Almost an inability to use your legs and arms!” What do they expect -or is it want -- a sportsman who could keep hunting if allowed to use a crossbow to do? Quit hunting? Follow Connecticut’s lead New York. Allow crossbows. It can only bring in more hunters, not less, although that seems to be what some selfish New York bowhunters want. Another regulation that has caused a lot of dissent in some areas is youth hunts for turkey and whitetailed deer. What better way to introduce a young hunter to the sport of hunting than with special days for just a young hunter with an adult mentor to go hunting? The new law now has expanded the youth hunt season to seven days prior to the regular seasons and has defined the level of mentor supervision. You can now use a muzzleloader during the regular firearms deer seasons. Over the years, many black powder (muzzleloader) hunters have lamented the fact that they could not use their

Kudos to the Connecticut DEEP, the DEEP Wildlife Division and the legislators responsible for the new hunting and trapping regulations that are now law in Connecticut. Heading the list is the use of crossbows in Connecticut. Crossbows are now a legal implement during the regular archery season for deer

and turkey seasons on both private and state lands for all hunters with the proper permits. They have also removed obsolete crossbow specifications and amended definition of a loaded crossbow. Also keep in mind the fact that you still have to have a bowhunter safety course even if you do intend to use a crossbow. Crossbow use can be a controversial topic for some

It really is reflective of the Autism community.” On Aug. 25, the pieces were unveiled at Fiat by Executive in Wallingford.

coverage dropped from 12.7 percent, or 384,000 people, in 2009-10, to 9.5 percent, or 286,000, in 2011-12. The twoyear averages are seen as a more accurate measurement of the state’s uninsured, given Connecticut’s small population. Sharon Langer, a senior policy fellow at the think tank, partially credits the decline in the state’s uninsured to the 2010 expansion of Medicaid eligibility to more poor adults. Also, she said a 2009 state law enabling young adults to remain on their parents’ health insurance plans and a 2007 law that expanded eligibility for the state’s HUSKY health insurance program for children to more parents and pregnant women contributed to the drop. “We’re hoping that the exchange, in combination with the Medicaid expansion going forward, will bring more good news and the number of uninsured in our state will go down even more as we look at these numbers in the coming year,” she said, adding how it’s unrealistic to expect the uninsured rate to be eliminated.
