Freda endorses budget By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

First Selectman Michael Freda endorsed North Haven’s proposed fiscal year 2013-14 budget during the annual town budget meeting on Freda May 13. “We recognize that the citizens of North Haven like the town services that they already have,” he said, onstage before a small audience within the North Haven High School auditorium. “This budget preserves those services.” To keep services the same, town officials are seeking a 2.1-percent increase. The proposed 2013-14 budget is $86.85 million — or $1.8 million more than the current budget. Two main factors are driving up costs: civic employee health insurance, and shrinking state aid for municipalities, the latter because Connecticut faces ongoing deficit problems. “The uncertainty regarding state revenues means that North Haven will be los-

ing state dollars this year, as will be most towns and cities in Connecticut,” Freda said. If passed, the 2.1-percent increase would raise the current mill rate of 26.54 by 1.56 mills to 28.10. “At 28.1, North Haven, among the 15 surrounding towns and cities, would have about the fourth lowest mill rate,” Freda said. “Two of the towns with lower mill rates do not have trash or leaf pickup like we do. Citizens in those towns have to pay extra to get those services themselves.” With a mill rate of 28.10, a property-owner of a house approximately valued at $300,000 would pay an extra $327 in yearly town taxes. The town-side budget is $39.8 million, a 1.4-percent increase, or $555,085 more. The education budget is $46.97 million, a 2.7-percent increase, or $1.25 million more. “We have had many discussions with the Board of Education, with parents, with PTAs and with the teachers’ union,” Freda said. “The general consensus is that, on the education budgSee Budget, page 8

Pratt and Whitney factory to come down as development goes up By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen After decades of abandonment, during which rust and weeds settled into much of the property, the 1.3-million-square-foot former Pratt and Whitney factory is scheduled for demolition. The massive building is one of many blighted elements across 165 acres of former Pratt and Whitney land along and behind Washington Avenue. Around the factory sprawl woods, sports fields set up for factory workers but long deserted and overgrown, and other industrial sections since abandoned. Until recently, economic development proposals for the large plot had fallen through. International real-estate firm Rabina Properties, which owns the site, had sought construction there of a mixed-use commercial/residential development. But that became financially unfeasible upon the arrival of the Great Recession. However, last February, Branford-based marketing and development firm O,R&L an-

nounced its partnership with Rabina Properties to revitalize the Pratt and Whitney plot into a large industrial park. With that comes demolition of the 1.3-million-square-foot factory, an abandoned building approximately the size of 22 football fields. “Within the next 45 days, deconstruction of that building will begin,” said First Selectman Michael Freda on May 10. Since originally taking office in 2009, Freda has listed redevelopment of the Pratt and Whitney site as one of his top goals. “They’ve pulled the permits at a local level,” he added. “This will be overseen by the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and the local health department.” Freda estimated that the building would be completely down in 60 to 90 days, once demolition commenced. Work to erect the factory began sometime in the 1950s, according to North Haven land use administrator Alan Frederickson. Pratt and Whitney purchased the land in 1952, town records indicate, and the factory and

QChamber of Commerce president stepping down By Andrew Ragali Special to The Citizen

Dave Zajac / Record-Journal

Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce President Robin Wilson speaks during a chamber event in Wallingford in January. Chamber officials didn’t indicate why the position was eliminated, but Semrau said on Facebook it was for budgetary reasons. At the time, Wilson said “it was a decision made by other people.” Semrau earned $78,611 in 2011, and Wilson earned $101,308, according to the chamber’s most recent publicly available tax filing. After learning that Wilson was retiring, John Mezzanotte, legal counsel for the chamber, said he “asked her to reconsider.”

“We tried anything we could do to persuade her to stay on,” he said. Mezzanotte said he even asked her to consider staying on past the year she will remain with the chamber before retiring. “I was disappointed she’s leaving.” Mezzanotte explained that Wilson would be staying on for six months as a condition of her contract. Board member Christine Mansfield said she didn’t attend the most recent meeting when Wilson announced her retirement, but heard about

Wilson said she can remember when she started her job in 1985. At the time, she said, the chamber was struggling, with about 200 members, and she couldn’t even cash her own paycheck, even though the ’80s were viewed as a prosperous decade. “Those were the good old days,” she said, remembering how she worked behind a folding table while sitting on a folding aluminum chair. Now, when economic times are said to be at their worst, Wilson said the chamber has more than 600 members, a healthy bank account and has received numerous awards. “We are indebted to her for all the things that she’s See Wilson, page 14

Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce President Robin Wilson announced her retirement last week after 28 years with the nonprofit organization. Wilson made the announcement to the chamber’s executive board on May 7, and again during the chamber’s regular board meeting the following day. Though her retirement is effective immediately, Wilson said she will stay on as president for six months, after which she will work with the chamber as a consultant for another six months. “I have put everything that I have into it,” Wilson said of her work with the chamber. But long hours have kept her from spending time with her family, Wilson said, and she wants that to change. “I need to be able to do that,” she said. “It’s time for the chamber to look at some new blood,” she added. Wilson’s departure comes three months after Cindy Semrau, vice president, chief operating officer and a chamber employee for 27 years, had her position eliminated.

it from fellow board members. Mansfield said the chamber has been making an effort to better oversee leadership. “I know there’s been an element of focus of keeping an eye on the leadership team,” she said. “I respect Robin for all she does,” Mansfield added. After she leaves, Wilson said she will miss several aspects of her job. “The best part of the job is the people part,” she said, “and the connection with the businesses, to be able to make those connections. The people I’ve met and worked with over the last 28 years are fabulous.” The chamber will survive her departure, Wilson said. “It will be fine.”

‘Oblivion’ surprises with this post-apocalyptic view of Earth By Tanya Feke M.D. Special to the Citizen

It is nice to be surprised. I’d strolled into a theater in Pennsylvania, with my mother, on a day trip just to see what was playing. We happened to be right on time for the next set of screenings and we placed our bet on “Oblivion.” Granted, Tom Cruise has not had the most fantastic track record of late (“Rock of Ages,” “Jack Reacher,” “Knight and Day,” “Valkyrie”). And you may cringe to hear this sci-fi adventure pays homage to the “Tom running from his problems” scene a la “The Firm.” And yes, it takes a good 15 minutes before you feel you are watching Jack the char-

acter as opposed to Tom Cruise playing the part of Jack. But once you get past all that, the film delivers something special and even meaningful. Oblivion opens in postapocalyptic 2077 after Earth has been invaded by aliens called Scavs. Though mankind allegedly wins the war, the planet is decimated. Humans are forced to live offplanet with the exception of those lucky few tasked to secure Earth’s natural resources and to destroy Scavs from claiming those resources as their own. Amid the desolate ruins, Jack, and his partner Victoria, work as “an effective team,” even as the truth of the world they have known unravels around them.

Any truly great sci-fi film requires two key elements. The first of these is a believable alternate universe. To this end, visual effects often take center stage. Many critics have given praise to “Oblivion” for its CGI but I have a more simplistic eye. The film seems little more than a glorified “Star Wars,” though the graphic novel style holds its own sort of appeal. The film does more for me in words than it does in its many attempts to wow action scene after action scene. Secondly, sci-fi success

rides on powerful themes – man vs. man, man vs. alien, man vs. machine. In “Oblivion,” Jack and Victoria’s memories are erased before their mission. This acts to protect them should they be captured by Scavs, but the heart of their memories, those memories with soul, cannot be undone. Echoes of experience shape their reactions to their predicament, testing their love and loyalty, drawing in the very essence of humanity. I practically rubbed my hands together in giddy joy as the intricate ethics of the saga

unfolded. Now don’t get me wrong. As much as I loved the underlying philosophical issues, there were annoying flaws with the film. After Jack is punched in the face with an assault rifle, why does he only have a small gash across his nose as opposed to a swollen broken beak? After the romantic backstory between Jack and Julia, why is there not an essential love scene between them like there was between him and Victoria?

NHHS students inspire

As one of the three founders of the North Haven Rotary Unsung Hero Award, Bernadette Casella recently explained to the service club that two outstanding high school students deserved special recognition because of their selfless service to others. She pointed out that the Unsung Hero Award is not given for academic ability, but rather because students have exhibited exemplary character traits, “something that cannot be measured with a letter grade.” She said that the special qualities that these youth have developed will be carried by them throughout their lives, and “hopefully will be passed on to others along the way.” Their achievement can be attributed to their environment, especially in regard to the fine example and encouragement of their parents. Carol Ardito, a business teacher at the high school, provided her listeners with a list of some of the accomplishments of the first award recipient, Noel Nixon. Ardito said that for many years

added, “She is a very quiet young lady who had no idea of all she does for her community.” In her brief remarks, Noel thanked the group for the award and also thanked her family for all of their support. She was accompanied by her parents, Elizabeth and Harry Nixon. Joined by her parents, Eve and Carlos Abreu, the other recipient of the Unsung Hero Award was Vanessa Reynolds. Described by the committee chair as, “brave in the face of fears, and does the right thing even when no one is looking,” Vanessa gave a detailed overview of her many years of volunteerism, which began as a ten year old working at an animal shelter

in Branford. “I’ve done this for eight years now, and don’t plan to stop anytime soon,” said the student. Reynolds’ baking class instructor, June Sturtz, wrote “She practically teaches the class when I have a substitute.” In her recommendation, the teacher noted, “If there is something that needs to be done, she’s the first to volunteer”. Vanessa’s list of accomplishments included honoring the victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School, as well as sending thank you cards to the first responders and the “police officers who helped keep us safe” when classes resumed.

Budget Continued from page 1 et, the numbers are right.” North Haven Teachers Association President Tom Marak, during public comment, said that while town education employees “remain concerned that vacant positions remain unfilled,” they nevertheless “hope vot-

ers say yes to this budget.” “Working within a limited budget, the administration made efforts to lessen the impact on classrooms,” Marak added. “We’re asking North Haven residents to support this budget as a commitment to the future.” Although the budget does not include spending for school-safety upgrades or middle-school renovations,

Barbershop chorus seeks members The Elm City Men’s Barbershop Chorus invites men of all ages to sing in its Monday afternoon rehearsals. The chorus has been in existence for more than 50 years and practice for the sheer joy of trying to sing. Previous singing experience is not required.

Freda said town meetings are ongoing about how best to address those issues. Longtime public-comment regular Ann Ruocco asked about a $450,000 surplus reported in this year’s education budget. Kristine Carling, Director of North Haven Schools Business and Operations, responded that after the current budget passed, education-employee health insurance was negotiated lower. And because state statute allows for 1-percent of a budget surplus to be carried over, only for capital expenditures, the $450,000 surplus would go toward technology upgrades next year. “These capital items are beneficial to the students,” Carling said. “This is money going right back into the classroom.” Ruocco was against the proposed budget. “I think

Legacy of deficits By Kyle Swartz

Rather than delay tough fiscal decisions until after next election cycle, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy should prioritize Connecticut above retaining office and seek immediate, effective financial solutions. While Malloy’s leadership on social/public issues has been solid — education reform, tragedy response, gun laws — his monetary math hasn’t added up. Outspokenly critical of Republican predecessor M. Jodi Rell’s $3.7-billion deficit he inherited in 2011, the governor approaches next campaign season with his own red-ink woes. Connecticut faces a projected $1.2-billion shortfall this fiscal year and a $1.3-billion gap in 2014. If passed, his proposed biennial budget reportedly would contain a deficit of over $680 million in 2015, and another of almost $800 million the next year. Worsening matters for Malloy, he has already exhausted several monetary maneuvers which could have been of benefit. Costsaving concessions the governor negotiated two years ago with state unions block layoffs of those employees until fiscal year 2014. To help mop up Rell’s red ink, he enacted a historically high tax increase of $1.5 billion in 2011. After taking considerable heat for that

massive revenue raiser, Malloy has pledged no additional taxes while addressing new shortfalls. Making that promise unlikely is that, without major cuts to welfare and education systems, the governor needs significant economic recovery to balance his budgets. This state is especially reliant upon sales and income taxes for government revenues. With consumerism goes Connecticut. But a primary reason Malloy must contend with further shortfalls is because, in constructing the $1.5-billion tax hike, he gambled incorrectly that sales would dramatically increase. Sluggish revival of retail and job gains means continued red-ink issues. Backed into a fiscal corner, up soon for reelection, the governor regrettably has taken many measures to defer painful-but-proper deficit reduction. Malloy proposes to borrow $750 million, and refinance $1 billion in operating debt from 2009. Ninety million in municipal grants would move onto credit. His budget would exceed the constitutional spending cap by $466 million next fiscal year, and $691 million in 2014-15. Commendably, the governor has sought

An Ounce of Prevention

Do you know what F.A.S.T means? By V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH If you do, then you may be able to save a life! The acronym F.A.S.T. stands for clues for assessing if someone is having a stroke. F stands for face: Does the face look uneven? Does one side droop down? Is it numb? Can the person smile? A stands for arm: Is one arm weak or numb? Does one arm drift down? Ask the person to raise both arms. S stands for speech. Does their speech sound strange? Is the speech slurred? Can the person repeat a simple sentence? T stands for time. With every second that passes, brain cells die. Call 911 at any sign of a stroke. Don’t wait to get help. The symptoms of a stroke are usually described with the adjective “sudden.” If someone has sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side; sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding speech; sudden trouble see-

ing in one or both eyes; sudden trouble walking, dizziness or loss of balance or coordination; or sudden severe headache with no cause, they could be having a stroke. The chances of survival and recovery are greatly increased when treatment is received quickly, especially within three hours. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that strokes are a leading cause of death and disability in the U.S. Most people don’t realize that a stroke may not kill them, but can change lifestyle drastically. Consider “Uncle John”: He always thought that if he had a stroke, it would probably kill him. “If that’s the way I’ll go, so be it!” was his motto. What Uncle John did not realize was that the stroke he had did not kill See F.A.S.T., page 27

The Esty’s: what scandal? By Chris Powell Scandal-mongers are feeding heavily off Connecticut’s power couple, U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty, D-5th District, and her husband, the commissioner of the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, Daniel C. Esty. But the supposed offenses of the Estys are actually only the norms of political life that could be held against most officeholders. Prior to his appointment by Governor Malloy, Daniel Esty was a professor of environmental law and policy at Yale, a prolific author, and a business consultant. Connecticut’s largest electric utility, Northeast Utilities, had been among his clients, though not for five years. Soon after his appointment Esty said he would recuse himself from regulatory issues dealing specifically with two dozen former clients, including NU. This was more a matter of politics than good governance, since Esty no longer had those clients and most government appointees are qualified by their experience. To turn experience into conflict of interest would diminish government’s competence. Of course there are different kinds of experience just as there are business stooges and labor stooges. But what the governor found interesting about Esty was his work nudging business toward environmental

concerns. Now the environmentalists are mad at Esty for supporting greater access for Connecticut to Canadian hydro-electric power. They complain that classifying hydro power as renewable power will undermine development of in-state sources of such power — that is, with more access to cheap and renewable hydro power from Canada, there may be less reason to tax Connecticut electricity users surreptitiously through higher rates to subsidize expensive and politically correct forms of renewable power here. But Connecticut’s energy costs are so high that priority must be given to bringing them down. Meanwhile heating oil dealers are mad at Esty for advancing Governor Malloy’s plan to increase Connecticut’s access to natural gas, more power that is cheap and less harmful to the environment. The Malloy administration’s idea is to increase energy choices and competition and let markets, not government, do more to pick the winners — not always the approach in a people’s republic. Esty is spreading this gospel far and wide. He did it the other day in a conference call with UBS Securities, which wants to know if Connecticut companies are

Let’s not even mention that Jack wears a New York Yankee’s cap – gasp! While I may hem and haw that the film ran a bit long (perhaps a good 15 minutes could have been cut), every scene did play its part in foreshadowing for later scenes. The film is far from perfect but it does deliver an emotional punch. With elements of “Star Wars,” “The Matrix” and “Total Recall,” “Oblivion” brings together

P&W Continued from page 1 additional buildings onsite likely went up in stages. The company began decommissioning production lines and structures there around the 90s, Frederickson said, a process that also occurred over time. Rabina Properties bought the land in 2001. Now, over a decade later, and after recent years defined fiscally by global financial turmoil, those 165 acres are finally poised for a beneficial future. “We’re in the beginning stages of putting up a giant industrial park,” Freda said. “We’re already interviewing companies to come in, companies of all sizes. This will not be mixed use. This will be

some actions outside of politically safe, kick-the-can philosophy. About $550 million in cuts to state hospitals -garnering public protest -are part Malloy’s $1.8-billion proposed spending reductions. In what seems like tax increases, he suggests extending several taxes set to expire in 2014-15, including a 20 percent surcharge on the corporation tax, a cap on insurance premium credit for businesses, and a levy on power plants. According to an in-depth Connecticut Mirror series on Malloy’s financial policies, citizens would pay an additional $222 million next year alone.

an industrial zone, possibly with wholesale distribution centers, light manufacturing, commercial office space and other businesses.” Freda compared the plans there to a modernized version of nearby Defco Park, another industrial park. “This should be a big boost to the local Grand List. This represents profitable tax dollars,” Freda said. “But it should also have a low impact of town services. A mixeduse development would have had a greater impact on town services.” “I’m very optimistic about the outcome of this over the next five to six years,” he added. “This should be a huge positive for North Haven overall, not just in terms of tax revenue.”

Those potentially controversial resolutions won’t be enough to close several billion worth of forthcoming shortfalls. One could wonder whether the governor did not back more sweeping, austere strategies out of wariness of losing public support before his bid to retain office in 2014. Regardless of that election’s results, Malloy, or his successor, must stop borrowing from the future and enact difficult-butnecessary fiscal changes to halt what has become an economically damaging legacy of deficits.

Obituary Marion E. Eisnor Marion E. Eisnor, 101, passed away on April 17, 2013 in Branford. Ms. Eisnor was born in Gorham on Dec. 6, 1911, a daughter of Robert R. and Ada (Meagher) Eisnor and trained as a registered nurse at Maine General Hospital in Portland, Maine. She served her country during World War II as a U.S. Army nurse and was worked for the Visiting Nurse Association of New Haven, retiring in 1971 after 23 years of employment. Family members include

It’s one of those jobs that isn’t just a 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., I’m sure.” Mayer said Wilson’s retirement is a “very positive thing,” because, while the

her sister, Helen Lamontagne of Gorham; nieces and nephews, Mary Ellen Newton and husband Roy, John Holmes and wife Joanne and Carroll Holmes; several greatnieces and nephews. She was predeceased by sisters Arlene Plante and Mildred Wentzell and brothers James Eisnor and Robert Eisnor, Jr. A funeral service will be held on May 18, 2013 at 11 a.m. the Faith United Methodist Church in North Haven, and a graveside service will be held at the Lary Cemetery in Gorham in June.

chamber is losing a “very fine employee,” Wilson will be able to enjoy spending time with her family. Ralph Mesite, a member of the chamber’s board, said the panel “was shocked” to hear of Wilson’s decision. “She had been there since day one in a little tiny chair and desk for a handful of members,” Mesite said. “We were just like, ‘what are you kidding me, that can’t be.’ ” Wilson is “a great woman,” Mesite said, adding that the fact she’ll be working with the chamber for the next year “shows dedication.” Mayer said a search committee will be established to determine how to fill Wilson’s position. Wilson said she has been asked to consult on filling the position. “I’m very honored,” she said. “I’m happy to help in any way I can.” Andrew Ragali reports for the Record-Journal, Meriden.

Sunday liquor sales a success? Depends on location By Molly Callahan The Journal Inquirer

As the first anniversary approaches of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s signing legislation allowing Sunday liquor sales, it seems the success of that initiative depends on where you are. “We’re just doing six days’ worth of business over seven days,” says Walter Silkowski, owner of Brown’s Package Store in Manchester. “It’s been a huge success,” says Dominic Alaimo, owner of Freshwater Package Store in Enfield. “I’m extremely busy on Sundays.” The measure, which was signed on May 20, 2012, ended the last of the state’s “blue laws,” giving liquor stores the option to open on Sundays and on other holidays throughout the year - Memo-

rial Day, the Fourth of July, Labor Day, as well as the Mondays after Sunday holidays. The extra day of business has left some storeowners with a bad taste in their mouths, however. “I’d like to go home and have dinner with my family,” Silkowski says. “Actually, I liked it better when everything was closed on Sundays.” Mike Andreo, owner of Putnam Plaza Superior Liquors in East Hartford, says his store was closed for only three days this past year: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. “That’s a long year,” he observes. The measure doesn’t require package stores to stay open on Sundays; it just gives their owners the option. But many owners say

they feel pressure to remain open, whether they’re busy or not. “You can’t be the only guy who’s closed,” Andreo says. “We have to be open,” Silkowki says. “People will just go somewhere else.” Alaimo, who for years had pushed for legislation that would allow Sunday sales, says the measure simply puts liquor stores’ owners on the same schedule as their counterparts in any other retail field. “Pizza shops are open all weekend, so they pick a different day to be closed,” he says, adding that liquor stores’ owners have the same choice now. “No one else in any other industry has the luxury to demand that everyone closes on one day. It’s about the right to be open.” Compounding a potential-

Something happens when you don’t advertise...

ly slow Sunday sales day for storeowners is the overhead cost to keep their stores open an extra day. Carroll J. Hughes, executive director and chief lobbyist for the Connecticut Package Store Association, says that package stores “spent a total of $6.5 million in labor and utilities to keep their stores open for an additional 55 days a year.” Hughes says he arrived at that number through a survey of the 1,100 liquor stores in the state. “We called those who didn’t respond, then averaged (their Sunday expenditures) on the low side,” he says. In general, Hughes echoes Silkowski, saying that liquor stores are doing the same amount of business, just stretched over more days. “My stores are telling me that they broke even, or are a little behind what they made last year,” Hughes says. Including both the group’s dues-paying members and those who contribute in other ways, such as to fundraisers, Hughes estimates that the Connecticut Package Store Association has between 500 and 600 members. That’s about half of the 1,100 liquor stores in Connecticut .

He adds: “We spent $6.5 million on a noble experiment. It is what it is.” For grocery stores, however, which already were open on Sundays, the measure has been nothing but good for business. Eric Nilsson, store manager at Geissler’s Supermarket in Somers, says the extra day of selling beer has increased weekly sales significantly. “We’re up by 8 to 10 percent per week,” Nilsson says. “It’s a convenience thing for people.” Joe Panero, the store manager at Highland Park Market in Manchester, says that Sundays are now the second busiest day for beer sales at the store. Saturdays are still the first, he says. “We only saw a slight drop in beer sales on Saturdays,” since the legislation went into effect, Panero says. “But we more than make up for it on Sundays.” Both Nilsson and Panero say they have found that people are taking advantage of the opportunity to buy everything they’ll need for a party in one place. As far as what customers are buying with their beer,


and Yale-New Haven Hospital branch — their Grand List contributions will decrease. North Haven will receive some state refunds through the PILOT program for such sites, though. And Freda believed the properties will attract additional business to town, thus helping account for lost tax revenue. “Moving forward, I am confident that very good things are going to happen in North Haven in terms of economic development, to grow our top line revenue, to minimize the tax burden on residents,” he added. “I am encouraging everyone to vote ‘yes’, and I support this budget.” Referendum on the budget is Tuesday, May 21. This year, only the recreation center at 5 Linsley Street will be open for polling during budget referendum.

there could be more thinking on this,” she said. “I realize that a lot of towns around don’t have the services that we have. But I don’t really like tax increases at all. I feel that taxes should be a little bit lower, because we’re a small town with a large Grand List. I will be voting against this budget.” Resident Bernard McLoughlin spoke in favor of the budget. “Although none of us want a tax increase, I think this town is run very well,” he said. “I hope everyone does come out and support this budget.” Because two large, newly occupied properties in town will operate under certain tax exemptions — the Quinnipiac University campus

NHHS boys’ lacrosse thinking playoffs By Kevin Pataky Special to The Citizen

North Haven High School boys’ varsity lacrosse last week played Guilford and Fairfield Prep in SCC battles with top contenders in Class M and Class L, respectfully. The Indians traveled first to Guilford last Monday and dropped an 11-5 affair. Sophomore Colin Uyeki led North Haven in scoring with a pair of goals while seniors Quincy Pecora and Eric Califiore each tallied a goal, as did junior Mike Halloran. NHHS dropped to 5-8 while Guilford improved to 10-2. On May 8, North Haven returned home to face last year’s Class L state champion Fairfield Prep. The Jesuits were 8-0 playing in state competition this year and 0-3 out of state, but this proved to be no match for the Indians as Prep won easily 15-6. Senior co-captain Pecora led NHHS’s offense with three goals and sophomore Colin Uyeki added a pair while Junior Ethan Suraci tallied one as well. The loss dropped the Indians to 5-9 and left them still two wins short - with three remaining - of a state playoff berth in the Class M playoffs next month. North Haven next traveled to Foran High School on

Monday to take on the Lions, who are in their third year of existence and had a similar record of 5-8. Freshmen Nick Campanelli put the Indians on the board first, 1:08 into the game, with his sixth goal of the season. About three minutes later, sophomore Chris Broadbent scored his first goal of the season to put North Haven up 2-0. The Lions roared back and tied the score at two goals apiece. But Halloran scored with eight seconds left in the first quarter to give NHHS a 3-2 lead. The defense tightened and

the Indians shut out Foran in the second quarter, netting two more goals to take a 5-2 lead into halftime. Pecora notched his 30th goal of the season 1:16 into the second and Uyeki scored about seven minutes later. This game continued to be tight in the third period. North Haven had goals by Uyeki and a pair by Cole Pecora, while defensively limiting the Lions to only one score to take an 8-3 lead into the final quarter. The Indians took control of this game, which began to get very physical, by scoring three quick goals - all by Uyeki - to open up an 11-3 lead. From there, Quincy Pecora scored another couple goals and North Haven cruised to a 14-5 victory. Uyeki was the high scorer in this game with five goals to up his team leading total to 41 on the season. Quincy Pecora had three goals, while his brother Cole added two. The win improved NHHS’s record to 6-8 overall. Now they need to win one of their final two games vs. either of two SCC Class L teams, West Haven or Amity, to qualify for the playoffs.

Liquor Continued from page 20 Nilsson says, “In general, it’s people buying beer along with their regular groceries,” rather than people stopping in to buy solely beer. “It’s just more convenient for the customers, Panero says. “It didn’t make sense to cover up (the beer) on Sundays; it’s already there.” The added convenience means that Geissler’s at least has been able to recoup sales it had been losing to Massachusetts liquor stores, Nilsson says. This was an issue that many storeowners in northcentral Connecticut had faced: losing customers to Massachusetts liquor stores that have been open on Sundays since 2004. “If you drove up to Massachusetts on a Sunday, you used to see lines of cars outside package stores,” Alaimo says.

4.7 percent, and 2.5 percent respectively, compared with the same period in 2011. The same comparison in Massachusetts shows that sales for spirits, wine, and beer rose by 0.1 percent, 2.9 percent, and 0 percent, respectively. Because Connecticut taxes liquor at a higher rate, these figures indicate that it’s the convenience of Sunday sales, rather than better prices that are driving the growth in this state, according to a report provided by Ben Jenkins, vice president of the Distilled Spirits Council. “For years, Connecticut residents had to go to neighboring states where merchants selling alcoholic beverages were wide open for business,” Kevin B. Sullivan, commissioner of Connecticut’s Department of Revenue Services, said in a release. “Connecticut lost business, lost sales, and lost taxes.”

“Now, it’s maybe four cars in the parking lots.” Those customers who used to hop over the border to get their liquor seem to be staying in state now that they have the option to buy on Sundays. Data analysis from the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States, which lobbied on behalf of distillers and wholesalers in favor of the Sunday sales legislation, shows that Connecticut has substantially outperformed its northern neighbor in volume growth in recent months. The council used data provided by the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services and the Massachusetts Department of Revenue for the months between May and December - the seven months after the legislation passed, and the most recent for which there’s available data. In that period, spirits, wine, and beer sales in Connecticut have increased by 4.6 percent,

worth investing in, particularly in light of the biggest complaint about business conditions here, which isn’t taxes but energy costs. State government might want Connecticut companies to be considered worth investing in. In the conference call Esty talked about the Malloy administration’s pending energy legislation, which includes hydro power access, so he was accused of playing favorites because his former client NU is working with Hydro-Quebec to bring its power south. But Canada is simply where the hydro power is, and Esty has stressed that Connecticut could buy it from whoever could sell it. The commissioner apologized for the supposedly bad appearances arising from the timing of the conference call, but no confidential information was conveyed in it. Indeed, a few days earlier Esty had given a similar briefing to the Journal Inquirer, again stressing natural gas, hydro power, greater consumer choice, and more competitive energy markets, and the newspaper reported his comments the next day without generating scandal. The clamor against Representative Esty, raised by Republicans, is that she has taken campaign contributions from officials of companies regulated by her husband’s department — that a shakedown may be going on. To reduce the clamor, the other day Representative Esty returned $3,500 in contributions from NU sources. But those sources hardly need to curry her husband’s favor indirectly through her campaign any more than they need to curry her own favor directly, for Congress acts on energy and utility policy too. And of course Republicans also take contributions from energy and utility interests — and rare is the Republican who supports public financing of campaigns to replace financing by special interests. Chris Powell is managing editor of the Journal Inquirer, Manchester.

During AIT, the soldier completed the military police specialist course to acquire skills to provide combat area support, conduct battlefield circulation control, area security, prisoner of war operations, civilian internee operations, and law and order operations. The trainee performed as a team member in support of battlefield operations, installation law and order operations and security of Army resources and installations. Additional training included providing peacetime support to the military community through security of resources, crime prevention programs, and preservation of law and order.

A TIA has many of the same symptoms of a stroke but is lasts a relatively short period of time, usually 24 hours of less. TIAs may signal a problem that can lead to a disabling or fatal stroke. — If you have diabetes, keep it under control. — High blood pressure is a primary cause of stroke. You can control this risk factor. You need to measure your blood pressure and treat if it is high.

Other lifestyle changes that can reduce the risk of stroke include: quitting smoking; increasing physical activity; eating a diet to lower blood cholesterol; avoiding excessive alcohol intake; losing weight; and getting checked for circulatory disorders. Respond immediately if someone shows the symptoms of a stroke. Get medical help right away. Quick immediate intervention results in increased odds for survival or recovery.
