Local mom’s blog lands her in best-selling book By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

When a North Haven mom began blogging last September, to protect the identity of her family online, she wrote under her first name Amy. Two months later, a fellow forename-only blogger Jen became aware of Amy’s website — FamilyIsFunny.com

— and asked her to contribute to an anthology which ultimately became the best-seller I Just Want to Pee Alone. “I did not expect all of this,” said Amy, whose blog centers around her household, including her six-yearold boy and four-year-old girl. “It’s been very exciting. There have been book sign-

Police: Homeless man fails to appear in court for child porn charges By Lauren Sievert Special to The Citizen

A local man is facing charges of failing to appear in court in connection with child pornography charges. Lt. Kevin Glenn, police spokesman, said on May 2 the North Haven Police Department was notified of an outstanding arrest warrant

for Angel Edward Gandia, 36, who was last known to reside in North Haven. The arrest warrant was for failing to appear in court in April where Gandia was scheduled to face child pornography charges, Glenn said. Gandia is currently homeless and was located by North Haven police officers

and taken into custody without incident, Glenn said. Officers found Gandia on Universal Drive, believing him to live somewhere nearby in a wooded area. Gandia was held on a $500,000 bond and appeared in court in Meriden on May 3. Lauren Sievert reports for the Record-Journal, Meriden.

improve to 5-4 with victories over Stamford, Jonathan Law, Wilbur Cross and Hamden. The Indians’ last three wins in that streak were by 13 or more goals. “The kids worked extremely hard in practice,” said NHHS boys’ lacrosse head coach Eric Bailey. “That typically translates into success in games.” Last Wednesday night, the Indians traveled to Fairfield to take on the Falcons from Ludlowe, a step up in terms of talent compared to the teams they played leading up to the contest. North Haven wasn’t able to remain close in this one, as they dropped a 13-7 match. Their four-game win streak, and four straight games of scoring at least 10 goals, both ended. The loss dropped North Haven

Motorcyclist faces charges after crash, gun brandishing By Lauren Sievert Special to The Citizen

Police said a Hamden man sustained serious injuries in a crash in Wallingford on South Turnpike Road on the evening of May 5, shortly after displaying a gun at a North Haven bar. Lt. Kevin Glenn, North Haven Police Department spokesman, said a North Haven bar stopped serving alcohol to Dennis Angelotti, 65, of Hamden, because he appeared intoxicated. Angelotti argued with the staff, then left on his motorcycle.

He went to another North Haven bar, which also refused to serve him. Angelotti returned to the first bar, where he started arguing with a bartender and asked customers if they wanted to fight, Glenn said. Angelotti was asked to leave, though customers saw he was holding a black revolver handgun. Angelotti fled the scene on his motorcycle when police were called. North Haven police broadcast a description of Angelotti and his motorcycle. A short time later, Wallingford police reported a rear-end

accident between a car and a motorcycle at about 5:20 p.m., north of the Cook Hill Road intersection with South Turnpike Road, Wallingford Police Lt. Anthony DeMaio said in a statement. The driver of the motorcycle was identified as Angelotti, DeMaio said. Angelotti was taken to YaleNew Haven Hospital with serious injuries. As of Monday afternoon, he was listed in stable condition and had been moved to a surgical floor, Officer Anthony Baur said. Traffic was delayed in

New state gun regulations anger, frustrate some By Mary Ellen Godin Special to The Citizen

Douglas Odishoo, owner and founder of Delta Arsenal, spent $250,000 to move his gun shop and indoor shooting range to from Meri-

den to Wallingford. “It’s a ghost town in here,” Odishoo said. “I haven’t even opened the shooting range yet. People are afraid to bring their guns out. They’re afraid they’ll get arrested.” Odishoo said since the changes in the state’s gun

laws passed in April, he has inventory he can no longer sell and customers aren’t happy with the changes. “See that gun there,” he said pointing into the glass showcase. “I can’t sell the magazine for it. Who is going to compensate me for that?”

SINGLES DANCE

The new regulations, passed in the wake of the shooting deaths of 20 children and six staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, include new restrictions on weapons and large capacity ammunition magazine. The 139-page bill passed 26-10 in the Senate and 105-44 in the House. It adds more than 100 firearms

Geek Continued from page 3 topics found in the pages of “Geek Mom.” Why superheros matter: “A superhero provides a compelling image: the ordinary looking person sees someone around him or her in trouble and springs into action revealing a hidden hero.” Of course, a variety of superhero costume instructions follow. On a similar theme is the chapter “Creating a secret lair”. For this, “you need at least one eager child, a large cardboard box, crayons, glitter” and an array of crafts items – then let the imagination run wild. Other topics range from “fitness for gamers” to genealogy which is deemed a

to make a Mobius maze puzzle and how to use Fibonacci numbers to create the golden ratio in crafts. Lava lamps, homemade “blobs” and “make your own tornado” are just a few of the twisted science projects readers will encounter. Exploring the world with a geek-eye may lead to unusual discoveries in everyday places. A parking lot or the local greasy spoon can hold secrets for those who know how to observe. There’s a chapter on traveling back in time with the help of a rock hunt and a discussion about “five robots I’d like to have in my home.” Readers will learn that “computers were people once.” That’s right - back in the 1640s the term didn’t refer to a machine but to a person who did computations. Geek Mom also goes into depth on the topic of how a geek family navigates its daily tasks in the chapter “How to get your kids to make supper.” Throwing a hobbit feast is one solution to the perennial lament, “Ma, there’s nothing good to eat.” “I’d call teaching the kids to make supper one of the more successful strategies of my parenting career,” writes Cereci. “Geek Mom - Projects, Tips, and Adventures for Moms and Their 21st -Century Families”, published by Crown Publishing, is available on Amazon and also as an ebook.

Friday, May 10, 2013 — The North Haven Citizen Blogging began for Amy as a way to keep in touch with friends and extended family. Five years ago, she and her husband relocated for work reasons from the Pacific Northwest to Connecticut. “I started posting things on Facebook about my family and our adventures over here,” she said. “I had friends encouraging me to start a

blog to expand upon those stories, so that they could get bigger doses of our experiences. I like to write.” Now, Amy posts about four times per week, around 800 words per entry. Every Thursday she puts online a crock pot recipe. “My in-laws

and I already had been sharing crock pot recipes every Thursday for over a year,” she said. “Putting the recipe on my blog became a good way for me to share a meal with them despite them be-

Secrets of a Domestic Diva” and “Ninja Mom.” Amy’s essay published in I Just Want to Pee Alone is entitled Embarrassment, Thy Name is Motherhood. “It’s about all the ways my kids embarrass me,” laughed Amy, a stay-at-home mom. “For example, I took my oldest to see Santa Clause. Santa asked him, ‘Do you help out mom and dad?’ And my boy replied, ‘At daddy’s work party last week, I picked up lots of beer bottles.’” “Santa couldn’t keep a North Haven mom and straight face on that one,” she added. blogger Amy.

people start blogs because they move so far away from their families. We’re in a world now where people are moving away more often, and blogging can help families keep in touch.” Blogging can also assist individuals with meeting new friends. “It’s a great way to connect with people who are like you are,” Amy said. “As a

stay-at-home mom, it’s sometimes hard to meet people like you.” Before Jen contacted her about I Just Want to Pee Alone, Amy already had been reading some of the motherhood blogs also included in the 185-page anthology, such as “Suburban Snapshots” and “Let Me Start by Saying.” “It was exciting to be a part of this with some of the women and their blogs that I’ve been following for a couple years,” the North Haven mom said. “It’s a good environment right now to start a blog. Blogs don’t get a lot of credit yet, but they have been parlayed into careers. People have parlayed their blogs into very successful books or even TV shows.

Gun Continued from page 4

Vincent Russo, manager of communications and governmental affairs for the Probate Court Administration, said inheriting a firearm would be subjected to the same laws governing transfers. “The recipient must have the necessary firearms permit or eligibility certificate and the procedures applicable to other transfers of firearms must be followed,” Russo said. “Assault weapons are in a category of their own. They may also be inherited. However, the disposition must be approved by the Probate Court, and the recipient must apply to the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection for the issuance of a certificate of possession.” The probate courts will

also be creating the mental health portion of the database used for background checks for firearms eligibility. The database will feed the federal NICS database automatically and will be launched this summer, according to a spokeswoman for the Office of Probate Court Administrator. As more details of the law are revealed, lawmakers are doing their part to keep constituents informed. More than 200 gun owners gathered last Monday night in Southington Town Hall looking for answers. The event was hosted by state Rep. Rob Sampson, R-Wolcott, state Sen. Joseph Markley, R-Southington, Al Adinolfi, R-Cheshire, and state Rep. David Zoni, DSouthington. Zoni was one of

only a few Democrats who opposed the gun legislation. The lawmakers had received numerous phone calls and e-mails from residents both for and against the legislation. Many of them questioned how the law is being implemented and whether it

April, its vice president of sales, John McNamara, said the company hopes to be out of Connecticut by the end of the year. “Due to an improperly drafted bill, manufacturing of modern sporting rifles in the state of Connecticut has been effectively outlawed,” McNamara stated in a press release. “With a heavy heart but a clear mind, we have been forced to decide that business can no longer survive in Connecticut — the former Constitution State.” McNamara said the gun law tramples on the rights of citizens. He questioned just how much it improves children’s safety. The company employs about 45 workers, most of whom have committed to leaving the state with the company, McNamara said. He would not say which state the company is considering, but state gun makers have received offers of land and tax breaks from Texas, Michigan, Florida, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Nebraska, said Mark Malkowski, owner and founder of Stag Arms, also in

New Britain. Stag Arms manufactures the AR-15. It employs 200 workers, so it may face more challenges before it considers a move, Malkowski said. But he understands PTR’s position. “I’m not surprised,” he said. “When they passed such overreaching legislation it caused brand damage, which makes it difficult to manufacture here.” The size of the gun industry in the state varies: from 800 employees, as claimed by gun control supporters, to 4,000, as asserted by gun manufacturers and gun ownership advocates. But Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said in April the value of protecting the state’s children means more than the gun industry. “The governor thinks about jobs day and night,” said Andrew Doba, director of communications for Malloy. “But we must prioritize public safety. And the bill he signed into law will prioritize public safety.” But there are potential holes in the legislation that have gun owners and sellers baffled over what they can and can’t own, purchase, sell or inherit.

CitizenOpinion Letters to the Editor

Adult store, clarification

To the editor: The purpose of this letter is to give North Haven parents and all parents an FYI, and also to make a clarification. On May 6, I attended the Planning and Zoning Commission meeting. The owner of the plaza on Washington Avenue (where the adult book store will go) was there requesting a change of use for 144 Washington Avenue to a “kids’ birthday party business.” I had questions, but wasn’t allowed to speak. During the break, I spoke with the land use administrator. Here’s a summary, as I recall. Q. Where will this kids’ birthday party business be located in relationship to the adult book store? A. The adult book store will be in the center of the building and the kids’ birthday party business will be to the right

in the building. Q. Didn’t the town adopt an adult-book-store regulation that prohibits a business involving children from being located so close to an adult book store? A. No. The regulation regulates where adult book stores can go and where they cannot. The town doesn’t regulate what businesses go next to or near an adult book store. Q. Is the owner of the kids’ birthday party business aware an adult book store with eight pornography video viewing booths will be opening in the middle of the building? A. That information would have to be shared or not by the owner of the plaza with the owner of the kids birthday party business. Here’s a clarification about another P&Z matter: I’m not opposed to affordable housing when it is done correctly. I’m opposed to developments proposed where the affordable housing state

Commentary

Fiscally going nowhere, and buying the Tribune By Chris Powell Connecticut House Speaker Brendan Sharkey, who sometimes sounds less eager to give the store away than his predecessors as speaker were, remarked in a thoughtful interview last week that state government has not thought enough about its tax structure and how to balance the revenue it needs against the state’s need for economic growth, of which Connecticut lately has had little. Sharkey is right that state government often seems thoughtless about tax and spending policy, but the problem may be less a lack of thought than a lack of political courage. After all, the state income tax, enacted in 1991, was presented as the product of immense thought. More taxation based on income and ability to pay was to make revenue more reliable and allow reduction of taxes deemed more harmful to economic activity. In fact, of course, Connecticut’s major taxes have only been raised since then the income tax itself, the sales tax, the corporation tax, and local property taxes. That’s because controlling

state spending has never been attempted. Indeed, the policies that prohibit control of spending cannot yet even be discussed. So if the sort of budget proposed by the governor and the General Assembly’s Appropriations Committee is enacted, state spending will rise again 5 percent in each of the next two years, even though Connecticut residents enjoy little income growth. In recent years the General Assembly and the governor affected to think deeply about tax policy when they planned to repeal the corporation tax surcharge and the tax on electrical generation. But as soon as more spending demands piled up, legislators and the governor reconsidered, deciding to reinstate the corporation tax surcharge and, while letting the electrical generation tax expire, to recover its revenue by borrowing. There is some coherence to all this as policy. That is, governors and legislators would like not to tax as much as they do and would like the state’s economy to grow again, just as they would like weekends to be See Tribune, page 27

Commentary An Ounce of Prevention

Err on the side of caution By V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH

During the past few years, our state has experienced some very disruptive weather. In the aftermath, we are aware of what our needs are and what we should have done to prepare. But, as time passes, we forget the inconveniences and hardships we had endured. Such is human nature. April 29-May 3 was Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Connecticut. It is a time of the year when the weather is usually calm and delightful (although possible rainy.) It is a good time to think about storm preparedness. Hurricane season begins June 1 and lasts until November 30. The last few summers have brought some tornadoes to this state. (And we had very disruptive snowstorms in the fall.) We have technology that lets us better track storms resulting in weather watches and warnings being issued more frequently. The

is being done fairly, Markley and Sampson said. “I had so many questions immediately, I thought I’d bring down someone who knows the legislation well and answer these,” Markley said.

Letters Continued from page 16

Michael Cronin, an attorney with the Senate Republicans who was involved in the legislation, fielded difficult questions about the aspects of the law from the public. “We went on for an hour just trying to answer those,” Markley said. Most of the questions had to do with buying parts for “grandfathered” guns, details of the registration process, and guns on consignment that can’t be transferred, Sampson said. “There were a great many variables that weren’t considered when the bill was drafted,” Sampson said.

Keeping nonperishable foods in the home and at least a three day water supply is strongly advised. (Have you tried milk that comes in a box and does not need refrigeration?) It is also important to keep supplies of medications, formula and diapers on hand. For those on wells and septic, remember that toilets don’t flush when the power goes out. Filling bathtubs and other large pots should a severe thunderstorm or hurricane approach will be very helpful (been there, done that). Do you know how long can you keep refrigerated and frozen food if a storm knocks out your power? The Quin-

nipiac Valley Health District has a packet of information on storm preparedness that can answer your questions. It is available at no charge to residents. Call the QVHD at (203) 248-4528, or request info via email: info@qvhd.org. There are many websites that can provide you with information about preparing. They include: cdc.gov, fema.gov, redcross.org and ready.gov An Ounce of Prevention is a weekly publication of the Quinnipiac Valley Health District, which is located at 1151 Hartford Turnpike, North Haven.

good part of this is that you may have more time to prepare. The bad side to this is that people get complacent and tend to ignore warnings, as often the event does not come to pass. However, isn’t it better to err on the side of caution? If you can at least take two or three simple actions, you may make your life safer, should a hurricane or other weather emergency occur: Number 1: You need flashlights and batteries — the more, the better. Keep them handy, especially in the bedroom. Put one next to everyone’s bed. This simple action will help you navigate your environment more safely and help you to find supplies that you might need. Flashlights are much safer than candles!

Number 2: Every home should have a battery-operated radio. Should an event be widespread or should you need information about evacuations or special instructions, your radio may be your only source of information. Because both radios and flashlights require batteries, be sure you keep a supply in the house. Even if you don’t fret about potential hazards, taking these two actions are pretty simple and can relieve a lot of anxiety, especially if you have children in the home. However, should you have warning of an impending weather event, you may need more than a flashlight and a radio.

Lacrosse Continued from page 1

back to .500 at 5-5. Up next was Xavier, a team ranked atop Connecticut’s Class L Rankings at 10-1. At first, the game looked like it would be a blowout. The Falcons scored early and often to open up a 4-0 lead over North Haven by the end of the first quarter. Xavier would expand that lead to 6-0 by halftime and the Indians looked like they had no chance in this one. But in the third quarter, the Indian defense tightened, and North Haven shutout Xavier in the frame behind some stops by freshmen goalie Josh Back. Scores by NHHS senior Quincy Pecora, junior Ethan Suraci and sophomore Colin Uyeki closed the deficit to 6-4. The fourth quarter remained a defensive struggle. Each team fired away at the other’s goal, but could not get anything in the net. The crowd was on the edge of their seats and the tension mounted until Xavier scored late to expand their lead to three goals at 7-4. With under a minute to play, North Haven put the ball in the net to close out the scoring in a 7-5 defeat. The showing by the Indians was noteworthy considering that the Falcons are in Class L while NHHS is in the lower Class M, and that no other team in the state currently has more wins than Xavier’s 11. “Xavier is loaded this

year,” Bailey said. “They have talent up and down the board, at every position.” “But our kids do not give up,” he continued. “They’ll fight until the last whistle every time we play. It’s just a matter of a team like Xavier having 100 kids in their highschool program and us having only 28. It was a shame, because out kids are working extremely hard in practice. We just don’t have a long enough bench, so we cannot compete with teams like Xavier for the entire game.” Connecticut high-school lacrosse can often come down to such a matter of those who have and have not. Schools like North Haven, with town-wide lacrosse systems started more recently, can struggle competing against programs whose systems have been developing for numerous years longer. “We’re still somewhat new,” Bailey said. “We have about six freshman and four sophomores playing varsity right now. On the big-time programs in the state, there are not many freshman and sophomores starting. The underclassmen have to wait for their time on those programs.” Still, it’s the youth lacrosse organizations in North Haven which will determine the high-school team’s long-term success. “As a staff at the highschool program, we rely heavily on our feeder system, on our youth teams and our youth coaches,” Bailey said. “They have to instill in our kids the necessary stick

skills during practice so that when we receive these kids in high school, they are already able to throw lefty and righty and at full speed. If you’re going to compete against teams like Xavier, our kids have to be able to do that.” For such a young team, NHHS does boast some upperclassmen strength. Bailey said that senior captain Quincy Pecora has been instrumental in the Indians’ wins and atmosphere at practice. “Pecora is our leader, our captain, our senior and our workhorse,” his coach said. Fellow senior Karl Anderson has been out with an ALC injury since week three, but has continued to help his teammates. “He’s there every day, working with the defense,” Bailey said. Other difference-makers in 2013 include the sophomore pair of attackmen, Uyeki and Cole Pecora. “They’re going up against juniors and seniors in every game, older kids from big-time programs,” Bailey said. At 5-6, North Haven remains two wins short of qualifying for the State Class M playoffs. Upcoming, difficult SCC matchups with Class L teams include Fairfield Prep, Amity and West Haven, and the NHHS Class M schedule has Guilford and Foran remaining.

Friday, May 10, 2013 — The North Haven Citizen

Yaccarino supports bill to assist veterans A piece of legislation, co-sponsored by North Haven state representative and former Navy Reservist Dave Yaccarino, aimed at helping veterans use and better understand what services are available to them was approved in the House of Representatives this week. The bill, H.B. 5388, requires towns and cities that don’t have a designated veterans’ advisory committee to appoint a person to help veterans who have questions about services—and for the state’s Department of Veterans Affairs to provide training to that appointee if requested. The bill awaits action from the state senate.

Tribune Continued from page 16 sunny. But they would like much more to keep spending — on necessities, niceties, and rank patronage — and if such policy keeps driving the productive, taxpaying class out of state, at least the government and welfare classes will be happy. ——Many liberals are freaking out because their worst bogeymen, conservative or libertarian billionaires Charles and David Koch, may purchase the Tribune newspaper chain now that the company has emerged from a long bankruptcy reorganization and plans to keep only its broadcast properties. Newspaper columnists, members of the MoveOn group, and others are warning that the Koch Brothers would turn Tribune’s nine daily newspapers, from Los Angeles to Chicago to Baltimore to Hartford, into print versions of right-wing Fox News. But so what? The Tribune papers are conventionally liberal in both news and opinion. The papers in Los Angeles, Chicago, Baltimore, and Hartford serve overwhelmingly Democratic and politically uncompetitive states. While those papers still occasionally can identify and criticize the worst political corruption, they are happy with the leftward and statist rush of public policy and the resulting impoverishment of

society. No states need a challenge to that policy direction more than California, Illinois, Maryland, and Connecticut do. Besides, concentration of ownership in the news media has bothered few liberals while Tribune has been safely liberal. Indeed, 13 years ago Tribune acquired the newspaper chain of the Los Angeles Times Co. precisely to combine newspapers and television stations in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, south Florida, and Connecticut in violation of Federal Communications Commission rules against cross-ownership of broadcast and newspaper properties in the same market. Since then Tribune has used its influence with the federal government, Republican and Democratic administrations alike, to evade enforcement of the rules, obtaining “temporary” waivers, even though the rules are still enforced against Tribune’s competitors. Then there is “diversity,” about which liberals prattle but which terrifies them when it comes to what matters most: political thought. Liberal money is as green as that of the Koch Brothers and there is plenty of it. So let the highest bidder for Tribune win. Chris Powell is managing editor of the Journal Inquirer, Manchester.

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, May 10, 2013

They Are “Public Notices” For A Good Reason DON’T LET CONNECTICUT OFFICIALS REMOVE YOUR RIGHT TO KNOW FROM THE NEWSPAPER. KEEP PUBLIC NOTICES IN YOUR NEWSPAPER! Pending legislation may remove your right to read public notices in newspapers, moving them from the public domain to government controlled web sites. We’re concerned. And you should be, too. Public notices are an important tool in assuring an informed citizenry. They have helped develop America into a participatory democracy for hundreds of years and where it counts the most: how your tax dollars are spent, how policy is made and how our futures are charted. They are located in easy-to-find sections of your newspaper. And they are fully accessible to everyone - unlike the internet, which is not accessible to everyone.

Less than 10% of the U.S. population views a local, state or federal government website daily, according to the May 2009 release of U.S. Census Bureau, Annual Estimates of Resident Population. This means more than nine out of ten people may never see a given notice. This compares dramatically to the fact that 83% of adults read a community newspaper every week, according to the National Newspaper Association. Furthermore, a public notice printed in the newspaper produces a permanent record. The internet does not, nor does it assure timeliness. And a newspaper is archived for years; not subject to computer crashes and hackers. Newspapers are easily verifiable, fully transparent and represent a secure third party who has nothing to gain from any notice.

Connecticut’s recent ethical lapses shed a glaring light on the full meaning of this problem. It’s like putting the fox in charge of the hen house. Every public notice, which runs in a Connecticut daily newspaper, is automatically uploaded to that newspaper’s web site and CTPublicNotices.org. Newspapers are your watchdogs. Don’t let that role be changed now. Voice your opinion. To keep your notices in the newspaper, contact your local legislator to oppose Senate Bill #1112 - An Act Concerning the Publication of Legal Notices by Municipalities. Governor’s Office - 860.566.4840 Senate Democrats - 860.240.8600 House Democrats - 860.240.8500 Senate Republicans - 860.240.8800 House Republicans - 860.240.8700
