Pavement pounding still best strategy for local races By Daniel Jackson Special to the Citizen

These aren’t your parents’ elections. Over the last few years, strategies with which state and national politicians have conducted campaigns have become more and more sophisticated. A senator from Illinois breathed fire into his campaign with a YouTube video which went viral. That happened in 2008. The senator’s name: Barack Obama. Today, not a campaign goes by without a flurry of tweets, Facebook posts and on-line fundraising — except, at the local level. The Citizen talked to several chairmen of political town committees and asked about their use of social media during this round of elections.

Here is what they said: While state and national elections have used social media and databases to target pockets of voters previously unreached without the technology, many chairmen of the town parties said social media is pushed to the back burner during local campaigns. Candidates in municipal elections will used the time-honored strategy of walking door-to-door, making themselves available to the voters of their towns. Zak Sanders, spokesperson for the Connecticut GOP, said he is mostly concerned with the state-wide Republican party and its message. Town parties in the Republican party have a degree of autonomy. “They’ve all got their own strategies,” Sanders said. “We don’t pretend to know

how they should run their campaign” The party holds candidate training sessions, and there, they give some advice to town politicians on how to integrate social media in campaigns: focus on one or two platforms, like Facebook and Twitter. The party suggests candidates show a behind-the-scenes look at the campaign trail, publish photos of people making phone calls, or going door to door. But ultimately, Sanders said, no matter how savvy a campaign is on Twitter or Facebook, it doesn’t replace traditional campaign strategies.

Buemi wins Democratic primary By Daniel Jackson The North Haven Citizen

Registered Democrats chose Sally Buemi to run on the party’s ticket for a seat on the Board of Selectman, in the upcoming November election, in a 303 to 128 vote. Democrat Registrar of Voters, Patricia JacksonMarshall, said 10.8 percent of the town’s 3,757 registered Democrats voted in the primary Sept. 10 between Buemi and Alan Sturtz, who was seeking reelection to his second term on the BOS. Buemi said she was grateful to all the voters who came out and to family and friends who helped her campaign. She said the election showed

democratic voters wanted a “stronger democratic voice.” “I will do everything I can to support that mandate,” she said. She said in the last few years, the Democratic Party in town has lacked an effective voice in town, essentially removing the two-party system in local politics. “The goal of government isn’t just to find a solution,” she said, “but find the best solution.” Buemi said when the minority party does not have a strong watchdog voice, it creates voter apathy, which is then shown at the polls in voter turnout. She was pleased with the amount of See Buemi / Page 9

Fair opened with food, music and fun By Jeff Gebeau

Special to The Citizen

The 71st annual North Haven Fair opened Sept. 5 at 5 p.m. Just inside the gates, dozens of fair-goers perched in a picnic grove while munching on standard carnival fare, as well as international offerings from Greek and Thai food vendors. They listened to dinner music provided by DJ John Bimonte of Double J. Sound. Bimonte, who grew up in North Haven, said he has been donating his time to the event for the past three years. Beyond the picnic tables, gaggles of teenage girls clustered around cell phones,

giggling and texting. Groups of boys observed the girls intently, while they leaned against concession trailers or congregated around stands where they showed off their prowess at games requiring them to hit targets with items such as balls, rings, darts and toy guns. Parents waited indulgently along railings at the exits of nearby fair rides or took photos as they watched their kids twirl, spin and flip, or experience gentler motion, in the case of smaller children. And wide-eyed tots in strollers held on tightly to prizes won for them by family members or nibbled happily on fair treats.

Jessica Butler, 27, of Hamden, said she and her young daughter Andrea attend the fair every year. Butler said she came to the fair as a child, and she wants to expose her daughter to the tradition. Andrea’s favorite activities are “looking at the animals, petting them, and riding the rides,” Jessica said. Andrea corrected her mother. “Actually, it’s everything,” she said. The fair features plenty of interesting animals for Andrea and other kids to enjoy. Elephant, camel and pony rides are offered in a See Fair / Page 2

fenced-in enclosure on one section of the grounds. However, zoo and circus animals are not the only novelty creatures featured at the festival. Ticket vendor Ashley Gentile proffered the chance to look inside a gated stall and witness a 1,000 pound hog, which she said was the largest pig ever to be displayed at a fair. Fewer than 50 yards away, a racing track with obstacles was constructed where pig and duck races were held daily. Converted warehouses housed more traditional ani-

mals, such as those found on farms or in petting zoos. Other modif ied warehouses accommodated vendors selling clothing, beauty products, home services and novelty items. Ray Dzwill, 66, of Clinton, a Record-Journal pressman in the 1960s and 70s, sat in the bleacher area by the stage that hosted most of the fair’s scheduled entertainers. Nearby were friends George and Rhonda Kevalas of North Haven. Dzwill said he came to support the couple, who enter multiple fair competitions annually, including vegetable, sketch and wood burning contests.

Foundation tries to educate about bike safety By Daniel Jackson

North Haven Citizen

A new organization behind a new bike path at John Grover Wyman Park wants to raise awareness in North Connor Haven about Kusmit the risks associated with bicyclists on the road. T he Con nor Kusm it Foundation is only a few months old, yet it has already worked with the town to build a bike path. Started in May, the organization has “done things very quick,” said Karen Brooks, Connor’s aunt. It has submitted the paperwork, but it is still waiting on approval of its 501(c)3 status. The organization came together in response to the death of Connor Kusmit, 16, a North Haven youth who was struck by a car while riding

last year. In August, the town broke ground on the bike path, which will include features to attract BMX riders. , Director of Public Works Lynn Sadosky, said the project will cost $94,000. Brooks said bicyclists “need almost 10 eyes” to remain safe on the road. Riders should only ride while wearinghelmets and use a bikes that work correctly and fit properly, she said. “The kids need to know all this stuff, but they have to watch out,” said Brooks. “It could be the driver.” It is still difficult For the Kusmit family to talk about the tragic event, but they do speak of . Connor as a quiet youth who excelled in studies and had a passion for astronomy. At a young age, he developed an interest in the sta rs, space a nd NASA , said Connor’s mother, Kelly Kusmit. He would go the planetarium in Bridgeport with his grandfather to look at the stars.

His knowledge was extensive. So much so that it impressed his teachers. “He knew what he was looking at in the sky,” Brooks said. By the time he was 16, Connor knew he wanted to study the stars in college and he was planning on applying to places such as the Air Force Academy. He was a voracious reader as well. During the holidays, when the family gathered for Christmas or Easter, Connor would be in the corner reading a book. Kelly Kusmit said her son was driven, he knew what he wanted and would often pursue his goals on his own. Before the summer of 2012, he approached his mom about his interest in taking classes at Yale University. “He came to me and said ‘I need this,’” she said. He needed one class, a math class, to get into North Haven High School’s AP calculus. During that summer, he took a speed reading

ago, on the anniversary of Aug. 29, 2012. Today, and his wife, Sandy Beardsley, said Connor is their hero. Brooks said the Connor Kusmit Foundation will continue to raise awareness in North Haven, the surrounding towns. It may possibly go into the schools to raise awareness. “You can’t make a good out of a bad — it was so tragic — but we’re turning around and want to help someone else,” Brooks said. The organization’s next goal is to host a bike ride on Sunday, Sept. 15, at the Pool Road entrance of the North Haven Fairgrounds. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the ride starts at10 a.m. Dav id Ca mpel l, event manager for the organization, said the 8-mile ride will travel local North Haven roads. Riders are required to wear helmets. “It’s to promote bike safety and awareness,” he said, adding the ride also helps raise funds for the organization so it can continue its mission.

course at Yale and worked towards getting his driver’s permit. Connor passed the math class and started junior year at the high school. He sat through the first day of classes, Latin, Honors English and AP calculus. That afternoon, he took his mountain bike and pedaled to Walgreen’s, a mile away, to get Andy Capp Hot Fries. The cafeteria didn’t serve any that day because it was the first day of class. Kelly Kusmit said she would see her son occasionally around town. Like the other times, he didn’t tell her where he was going. He visited one of his friends and then he started traveling towards his house on Route 22. It was about 5 p.m. Ed Beardsley, Connor’s grandfather, said the day he walked in the hospital to see his grandson was the hardest day of his life. A year ago, 1,500 people attended Connor’s funeral. “North Haven Funeral Home was a little overwhelmed,” he said. The second hardest day in his life was a few weeks





The North Haven Police Department arrested a Hamden man, on Sept. 5, who was wanted by New York authorities for sexually assaulting, and beating a woman with a hammer, according to The North HAven Police department. The Suffern Village Police Department held an active arrest warrant for Joseph Fortier, 29, of Hamden. The arrest warrant listed ten criminal charges including rape, assault, and robbery. Fortier is accused of attack-

ing a woman, striking her in the head with a hammer, and sexually assaulting her while a one year-old boy was present. Fortier is also accused of forcing the woman to open a safe where he took ownership papers to a vehicle prior to fleeing. The Suffern Village Police Department contacted the North Haven Police Department who eventually located Fortier. He was arrested in North Haven and is being held as a fugitive from justice pending an extradition to New York.

Big changes at Pratt and Whitney plant The large industrial building at 415 Washington Av. will be dismantled, piece by piece, according to Frank Hird, vice president for O,R&L, a real estate brokerage company. O,R&L is marketing the 165-acre site — formerly used by Pratt and Whitney — as one of the largest industrial sites in Southern Connecticut for sale. “There is nothing that comes close to it,� Hird said, adding that large companies haven’t looked at Southern Connecticut as an area to conduct business in some time. The demolition of the old building is “going to be a long process,� because the building, the steel and other materials, must be taken apart piece by piece and recycled. Hird said he expects the demolition to finish in February. Hird said while no deal is yet on the table, the property has gathered interest. He did not say what kind of businesses are looking at the building — he cited confidentiality agreements — but he did say the developers want to build a large building and rent it out for the long-term.

The property is close to various shipping lines. It’s close to the highway, and the property can connect to the rail line, which would tie the property to the New Haven Harbor and the port authority. The demolition project also includes the removal of the buildings in front of the property which lie along Washington Avenue, the former Getty gas station, for example. Hird said ideally, the developers want to rent out the building, but they may also sell smaller lots of the property, at about $199,000 per acre. In December 2001, Pratt and Whitney sold the property to 415 Washington Ave. Partners, LLC. At the time of publication, the owners could not be reached for comment. “Pratt & Whitney vacated North Haven when it consolidated facilities to remain competitive in the industry and respond to its global customer needs,� said Ray Hernandez, manager of external communications at Pratt and Whitney, in an email. Pratt and Whitney opened the doors of the North Haven plant in 1952 where it made jet engine parts, including

voters that turned out for the special election on Tuesday – 431 voters total – because it was a greater turnout percentage than the last three referendums. Buemi challenged Sturtz for his seat on the Board of Selectman, collecting enough signatures to call for a primary to decide whether Sturtz or Buemi would win the party’s nomination. “Obviously, I’m disappointed that I didn’t win the primary,” he said. “But this is democracy working the way it’s supposed to work.” Sturtz thinks that the primary race will help the Democratic Party’s Board of Education candidates in November because this election will energize the Democrat voter base. Democratic To w n Committee Chair Walt Spader

agrees. He hopes the voters who supported each candidate in the primary who, for example, posted lawn signs for the selectman candidates will support Democratic BOE candidates in November election by also posting signs for the BOE candidates. The only negative, Spader said, is that both Buemi and Sturtz cannot run on the party’s ticket in two different races, filling out the Democrat Party’s ticket. For the most part, the polling places across town were quiet. Many poll workers were reading books, or knitting, waiting for the voters who mostly came in ones and twos throughout the day. At the District 3 voting place in Ridge Road Elementary School the hum of the air system filled the gym where the five poll employees worked. However, primary election day Sept. 10 began early for Buemi, when she made a sign around 3 a.m. She got poster

board from Walgreens, duct tape and a piece of wood from her garage. On a sign almost as tall as herself, Buemi had a friend print “DEMOCRATS VOTE TODAY.” She didn’t want to promote herself on the sign. “It didn’t seem very appropriate for this locale,” she said as she stood on the corner of Route 5 and Route 22. That Tuesday, she started standing on the corner from 7 to 8 a.m. Then, she visited two voting districts and returned to the corner from 9 to 10 a.m. When the sky rained that day, she went home, made some calls and voted with her father. She then returned to the corner. “For my critics who have said I’m wasting time and money for doing this, I’d like to say that’s a very un-American thing to say,” she said. “Primaries are part of the democratic process and as a citizen, I did what any other citizen could do.”

Faith Commentary

Grandma’s effort to keep the Sabbath Day holy Since 1978 the first Sunday of September has been designated as Grandparents Day. There are about 70 million of them in the United States, most deeply attentive to the lives of their grandchildren. My earliest memory from childhood involved the death of our maternal Grandpa Corliss. He was a retired farmer when he lived with us and had been ‘laid out’ in our parlor. The house was filled with people, and I dimly recall how Mom gently shushed my younger sister and me. I was four and Erma was two, and apparently our behavior was inappropriate to the somber occasion. Grandma Corliss had died when Mom was 13. The only grandparent I really knew was Grandma Roy, born in Canada in 1864, one of 10 children. While her maiden

surname was Lord, the family language was French. Soon after she had married Grandpa Roy they moved a few miles south to Swanton, VT, just across the Quebec border, where we were raised. Grandpa worked on a farm - not his - then on the railroad. He died at age 42. They were FrenchCanadian Protestants, a rare breed, who would have joined the Baptists had they a church in town. They first attended the local Congregational Church until they discovered that the pastor smoked a pipe. In their view tobacco and alcohol were especially dangerous temptations to avoid. They then became Methodists, though Baptist influence persisted. My four siblings and I were not baptized until age 12 - believers’ baptism. Sunday worship was at 11 o‘clock, followed by Sunday School for all ages at noon. Swanton was in dairy


country, and this schedule allowed farmers time for morning chores before putting on their Sunday best. Dad left to pick up his mother at about 10 o’clock, then drove back home - and we’d better be ready. There was a busy railroad crossing between us and our church, which was located across the river alongside the village green. Every Sunday morning a long freight train would slowly pass through, which could seriously delay us if we hadn’t already crossed those tracks. If that happened, as it occasionally did, Dad could become irritated. He was a perennial usher and wanted to arrive well before the service began. After church Grandma Roy would join us for our big Sunday dinner, then remain through the afternoon. She spoke with a slight French accent, a sprightly, petite and devout woman, who emphasized the Biblical commandment that the Sabbath be kept holy. To her this meant no mowing the lawn or weeding in the garden, but also no playing cards or dominos, no tossing baseballs or footballs, no ice skating on the pond nearby, and certainly no movies. In fact, Grandma frowned on cards and movies altogether. Mom confided in us that this had been a problem when she and Dad first married. Mom enjoyed a regular afternoon

of bridge with other women of the local Shakespeare Club. In those days, all the stores were closed on Sunday. Most neighbors and friends engaged in Sunday sports, swam or fished in Lake Champlain nearby, or went to the evening ‘picture show’ at the Champlain Theater uptown on Canada St. Unless there was a special event at the church or that occasional family picnic we stayed at home. Relatives might drop by, and Mom tried to make it more fun by having us pop popcorn. She especially liked to corral everybody into the parlor, off-limits on weekdays, to sing around our player piano where we belted out “Let Me Call You Sweetheart”, “In the Gloaming” and other old-time favorites. After a sandwich supper, Dad would drive Grandma home. Then we gathered in the living room around our large Philco radio, laughing loudly as we listened to Jack Benny, Fibber McGee and Molly and other favorite programs. When we heard Walter Winchell’s staccato delivery of “Good evening, Mr. and Mrs. America…” that meant it was 9 o’clock and bedtime. We all grieved when Grandma died following a brief illness in 1946. She was 81. A couple years later, when I was at college in Pennsylvania, I went to

New York City to spend a weekend with Dad. By then he had become deeply engrossed in several small town enterprises, and now and then he and Mom enjoyed escaping for a few days to Manhattan, which included a Broadway show or two. That Sunday morning, as was their habit when in New York, we went to the Bible Breakfast at the old Sloane House YMCA, then to Marble Collegiate Church to hear Norman Vincent Peale, the famed author and preacher. We hurried to join the line outside the church, hoping to get into the main sanctuary rather than the overflow chapel. At lunch that day my father shocked me. “How about going to Radio City for a stage show and a movie?” he asked. “Dad,” I said in amazement, “all these years we couldn’t do that sort of thing on a Sunday.” “I know, I know,” he replied. “But two things are different now. First, we’re not in Swanton, and who will know or care? And, second, your Grandma is gone. We went along with her emphasis on one commandment to follow that other commandment about honoring your mother and father.” Then he added with emotion in his voice: “I had another reason, too. Sunday was when I would spend the whole day with the family, and everybody was there together. All week I looked forward to Sunday.” Ralph Lord Roy of Southington is a retired United Methodist minister. Email:

Strategy Connecticut, would agree with her counterpart in the Republican Party that she isn’t focused on social media during the municipal elections. She gives out very similar advice to municipal candidates in the Democratic Party on how to use social media. The Democratic Party, too, holds campaign training, but Larkin said social media is “not on the agenda.” However, she said she wants to be a resource for candidates who want to learn more on how to use Facebook or Twitter to reach voters. “I tell people to start from a place of being helpful to other people,” she said. She said she tells candidates to be conversational, to not just republish press releases. However, Larkin is focused on the state as a whole, and “back to basics campaigning.” Ro s e m a r y Mo ra n te, Democratic Town Committee Chair for Plainville, said the technology used in elections have changed so much in the last few decades. During the 1990s, the town Democratic party used to run off copies of documents and mail all the committee members in order to communicate. Today they use email. “I remember the days we were hand-addressing enve-

lopes,” Morante said. She started working on campaigns back in the 1970s. Then, the party would get the list of voters in a paper document. They would then pour over the list. They would spend more time in clerical tasks. Today, they get the list in the form of a database on the computer, and the information is malleable. The party can delete or add information. However, when it comes to the next generation of technology, social media, “up until this point, we haven’t done a lot,” Morante said. Earlier this year, the party formed a party-building sub-committee to look at candidate recruitment, fundraising and new uses of technology. The priority for Plainville’s Democratic Party is to create a conventional website, Morante said. After that, they hope to branch out with a Facebook account, and possibly a Twitter platform. “I hope this is year that we start adding technology to our local, Democratic campaign,” she said. Di an e L evy, Durha m Democratic Town Committee chair, said the use of social media in local elections is the way of the future and “It’s something that we’ve been talking about,” but not during this election, not in her town at least.

“I think this election isn’t going to be as heated as some,” she said. She said the Durham Democratic Town Committee will focus on social media on larger elections, like in the election for the Board of Selectmen. Levy said Durham’s First Selectman, Laura Francis, Republican, has used social media effectively in the small town. It’s hard to compete, she said, because Francis even has her own spot on television. But Francis does not get help from Connecticut’s U.S. Senator, Chris Murphy, Democrat. Levy said every Democratic town committee chair in the state received an email from the senator giving suggestions on how to use social media during their campaigns. Th e e m a i l to l d t h e Democratic town committee chairs that Murphy had developed a grassroots network of 70,000 people in Connecticut during his campaign for election to his senate seat and Murphy’s election campaign

was willing to use that network to help municipal, Democratic candidates win their towns’ elections. The email, signed by Murphy, told the town chairs to set up an online contributions page, then Murphy would reach out to his list of supporters in the respective towns, endorse the municipal candidates and direct his supporters to contribute money and volunteering time to the local campaigns. He told the Democratic chairs he didn’t know how it would work out — this was the first time anyone planned to email the supporters from a larger election to help win a smaller election. N o r t h H a v e n To w n Committee Chair Walt Spader said Murphy’s offer is a way to strengthen the Democratic Party in the state. By letting municipal candidates send messages to Murphy’s political database, the party is trying to motivate people who only vote every few years. This builds the infrastructure

of the party, Spader said. It will help Murphy during his future re-election campaign, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal’s future campaign and the overall party “It’s very important to build that base now,” he said. Anne Reilly, Republican Town Committee chair for Berlin, said social media is a new avenue for the town party. Presently, the Republican Party is revamping its website, but Reilly sees the potential for social media. It will allow for greater distribution of their message, and she hopes the new platform will “create a neighborhood feeling,” similar to the one created by going door-to-door. Durham resident Lisa Davenport, who sits on her town’s Planning and Zoning Commission and the Republican Town Committee, said she ran for state senate in 2010. Social media, she said, is “just another avenue,” and does not replace knocking on doors. During her campaign for Connecticut’s Senate, she had to reach 100,000 people with her platform. She had to use social media because a large race needs to be personal, even when the candidate can’t reach every voter personally. But elections on a local scale become much more personal, much more interpersonal. Instead of reaching 100,000 voters, candidates only need to reach 7,000 in the town of Durham, she said. This lends itself to candidates traveling door-to-door. Even when the Durham’s Republican Party uses social media, in the case of first Selectman Laura Francis, Republican, “she also makes sure she has the time to get out there,” Davenport said. While Francis has her own TV show and Facebook account, the first selectman from Durham also meets people at the local coffee shop. Southington Republican Town Committee Chair, Brian Callahan, said social media reaches a younger audience. College-aged people, adults in their 20s and 30s, use social media. The older generation, 50-plus, rely on the newspapers and the phone book for their information, he said. See Strategy / Page 22

By State Sen. Leonard A. Fasano The summer driving season is over, but high gas prices continue to put pressure on fa m i ly budgets across Connecticut. While gas prices have come down some, global economic forces are threatening to send them back up in the coming weeks and months. Crude oil prices are the highest they’ve been in 18 months, having increased 20 percent over just the past two months as a result of supply disruptions and rising concerns about United States military intervention in Syria and general political instability in the Middle

East. This impact has been somewhat muted in recent months because our domestic oil production has surged as a result of shale drilling. However, the trend is not good, and if crude oil prices remain at all-time highs, it will only be a matter of time before we again see higher prices at the pump. While these global factors are beyond the state legislature’s control, there is one factor directly within our control – state gas taxes. Connecticut levies two different taxes on gasoline. The first is a flat tax of 25 centsper-gallon. The second tax is not well known. It is called the petroleum gross receipts tax; a hidden tax levied as a

percentage of the wholesale price of gasoline. Because this second tax is tied to wholesale price of gasoline, it rises and falls in concert with the volatility in the petroleum market. Therefore, when the price of crude oil increases, Connecticut gasoline taxes increase faster than they do in other states. At the current effective rate of 8.84 percent, this second tax currently costs consumers an additional 26 centsper-gallon at the pump. At a total of about 51 cents-pergallon, Connecticut motorists pay higher state gas taxes than all of our neighboring states and usually rank first See Revenues / Page 15

Murphy votes against attack on Syria By Charles J. Lewis

Hearst Newspapers

WASHINGTON — Sen. Chris Murphy voted against President Obama’s plan to take military action against Syria and warned that such an attack could involve the U.S. in the civil war ”in a way that will be difficult to untangle.” T h e S e n a t e Fo r e i g n Relations Committee voted 10-7 Wednesday, Sept. 4, in favor of a resolution authorizing Obama to order a ”limited and tailored” military attack ”against legitimate military targets in Syria.” Murphy, D-Conn., was one of two Democrats who joined with five Republicans to vote against the resolution; seven Democrats and three Republicans supported the measure. Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., voted present. The resolution set a 90-day time limit for presidential action and specifically barred ground troops for combat. Those restrictions were pushed by committee members concerned that the original White House proposal was too open-ended. Another amendment sponsored by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., tilted in the opposite

Assessor inspections The North Haven Assessor’s Office is conducting field visits until the end of October to inspect properties that have had building permits or certificates of occupancy issued during the last year. The inspector will have an Assessor’s Office sign on the vehicle, an identification card from Tyler Technologies and a letter of authorization from the Assessor’s Office.

direction and stated that one goal of a military strike was to bring ”decisive changes to the present military balance of power on the ground in Syria” in favor of the insurgents. The Senate committee vote was the first congressional test of Obama’s military authorization request. The full Senate is expected to take up the resolution after the lawmakers return next week from summer recess. Later, Murphy issued a statement declaring that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons against the people of Syria was ”a human rights atrocity and a blatant violation of international law.” “It’s impossible to see the horrific images of death and suffering in Syria and not feel compelled to act in some way.” But, Murphy continued, ”There is not always an American solution to every international crisis. For me, today’s vote was a close call, but in the end, I voted no because I believe that the downside risks of military action, both for U.S. interests and the Syrian people, outweigh the potential benefits.” There is ”little chance” that

targeted air strikes would destroy Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles, he said, and may ”simply prompt another deadly reaction from Assad as well as the countries that finance his murderous regime.” The insertion of U.S. military power has the potential ”to further destabilize the nation and propel its descent into chaos,” he said. Murphy expressed concern that the resolution ”will involve us in the Syrian conflict in a way that will be difficult to untangle. We are naive to believe that our support for the opposition, or opposition to Assad, will end in a matter of months. Taking sides in this conflict will likely commit our country to an openended engagement, at an

untold cost to both our reputation in the world and to American taxpayers.” He urged increased humanitarian aid to Syrians affected by the civil war and more diplomatic and economic pressure on the Assad regime. Committee approval came after Secretary of State John Kerry and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told the panel that U.S. credibility was on the line following Obama’s warning last year that any use of chemical weapons by the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the ongoing civil war there would cross ”a red line” that would merit a penalty in the form of military action. Kerry and Hagel said failure of the U.S. to act would embolden Iran, North Korea and terrorist groups to conclude that U.S. threats were mere empty rhetoric. Kerry said Assad’s forces used chemical weapons on

transportation initiatives, expensive road and bridge repairs, and to help independent gas station owners pay for federal insurance requirements covering the cost of cleaning up leaks and environmental damage that can be caused by underground gas tanks, then there may be an argument for keeping the petroleum gross receipts tax. However, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has diverted more than $180 million in his first two biennial budgets out of the Special Transportation Fund to pay instead for the growth of other government programs. The diversion of these funds has jeopardized our transportation infrastructure and forced many small independently-owned gas stations out of business.

Republica n legislators have fought to reduce state gas taxes for years. Most recently, we circulated a petition to stop a 16 percent hike in the petroleum gross receipts tax that Democratic legislators and Gov. Malloy allowed this year. The petition also called on Gov. Malloy to use revenue collected from state gas taxes to fund major transportation initiatives, along with necessary road and bridge repairs, consistent with the legislature’s original intent. This also includes funding of the state’s underground storage tank program. M o r e t h a n 1 7, 0 0 0 Connecticut residents signed our petition to stop the gas tax hike and use existing revenues for their intended

Aug. 21 against insurgents, resulting in a death toll exceeding 1,400. Kerry made the same case Wednesday before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Obama said last weekend that he would seek congressional approval of such a step, though he maintained that he could order military action even if Congress voted against authorization. Voting yes on the Foreign Relations Committee were Sens. Robert Menendez, D - N.J. , B a r ba ra B oxe r, D-Calif., Ben Cardin, D-Md., Jean Shaheen, D-N.H., Chris Coons, D-Del., Richard Durbin, D-Ill., Tim Kaine, D-Va., Bob Corker, R-Tenn., Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and McCain. Murphy and Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., were the only Democrats opposing the measure; other ”no” votes came from Sens. James Risch, R-Idaho, Ron Johnson, R-Wis., John Barrasso, R-Wyo., Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Marco Rubio, R-Fla. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., did not respond to requests for comment about the committee’s action.

or second in the nation. When you add the 18.4 cent federa l excise ta x, Connecticut motorists end up paying 69 cents in taxes for every gallon of gas they purchase. For an average 15 gallon fill-up, that’s about $10.35 in taxes alone! To add insult to injury, Connecticut’s petroleum gross receipts tax also influences the state’s diesel fuel tax, which in turn increases trucking and transportation costs, and ultimately consumer costs on everything from groceries and clothing, to construction, as well as other goods and services. If revenue from state gas taxes were actually invested, as they once were, in major

purpose. The petition was presented to Gov. Malloy in June, but, regrettably, he did not see fit to respond. The next time you fill-up your gas tank, please consider the high price and misuse of Connecticut’s gas taxes, and the impact it has on our state’s economic competitiveness and your family budget. Please urge Connecticut lawmakers and Gov. Malloy to reduce state gas taxes and stop stealing from the Special Transportation Fund. State Sen . Leonard A . Fasano (R-34) is the Senate Minority Leader Pro Tempore and represents the communities of Durham, East Haven, North Haven, and Wallingford.

Results showed a personal invitation from a family member would prompt 67 percent of Americans to visit a church, and 63 percent said an invitation from a friend or neighbor would cause them to attend a service. “Back to Church Sunday” has an interactive Facebook page ( backtochurch) and a roster of participating churches on the Back to Church website at find_a_church.

Third animal in health district tests positive for rabies There have been animals confirmed sick with rabies within the health district, according to the Quinnipiac Valley health District. In 2012, there were four rabid animals; one skunk and three bats. To date in 2013, there have been three rabid raccoons. While rabies can occur in any mammal, it is most commonly seen in skunks, raccoons, and bats within the Quinnipiack Valley Health District (Bethany, Hamden, North Haven, and Woodbridge.) Small animals like field mice rarely, if ever, contract rabies. Because the possibility of rabies in wildlife exists, you need to be very cautious when encountering wildlife and managing your pets. For family and pet protection: Avoid contact with wildlife, including cute baby animals. If a bat is in the house, call animal control to capture it so it can be tested. (This is especially important if you wake up with a bat in the bedroom or if the bat is found in the sleeping area of a small child or adult who is not able to

give reliable information.) Maintain a barrier between you and wildlife by vaccinating your pet against rabies. (This is required by law for both cats and dogs.) Spay or neuter your pet to decrease attraction of stray animals. Report ill or stray animals to your animal control officer. If a pet is in a fight with another animal, wild or domestic and unknown to you, never touch the wound with bare hands. Use gloves if you need to examine it. The rabies virus is found in saliva and brain tissue of infected animals. Allowing the pet’s fur to dry will further reduce your risk. Wash hands with soap and water immediately after any contact with a suspect animal or after inspecting a wound on pets. Seek prompt medical attention if you are bitten by a wild animal or a domestic animal unknown to you. For more information on rabies, call Quinnipiack Valley Health District, (203) 248-4528 or www.

North Haven High kicks off football season By Ken Liebeskind Special to The Citizen

North Haven High School touchdowns will be more exciting this year because sophomore Sabrina Fronte will be kicking the point-afters. The first girl on the team since April Cillo suited up for the Indians from 1997 to 1999, Fronte has demonstrated her competence. “She’s legitimate, she’s good,” NHHS coach Anthony Sagnella said. “She didn’t miss one in practice.” Fronte said she will only kick PATs, but that may not be the case down the road. “As her leg gets stronger she’ll kick field goals,” Sagnella said. “You never know when she’ll get the chance.” The Indians opened their season Sept. 12 at Bridgeport Central, part of an intra-league series between the Southern Connecticut Conference and the Fairfield County Athletic Conference. “We played them two years ago. They have size and speed and playing them in their

Halloran is a diverse athlete and I think we’ll be more balanced than in the past.” The Indians have 11 games on tap, including match ups against Hand and Hillhouse, teams that bested them last fall. “There’s three big dogs in front of us and two we don’t know about, but we’re coming together quickly as a team,” said Ethan Suraci, who joins fellow seniors Patrick Mikos, Mike Siwek and Austin Mahon as team captains. North Haven finished 7-3 in 2012, and won the league title, but didn’t qualify for the state playoffs. When asked if postseason The NHHS football team practices Monday in preparation for the start of the season. | (Ken play is a possibility this time Liebeskind/Special to The Citizen) around, Sagnella said, “One loss hurts, two is the limit home opener will be rough,” Sagnella said. “It’s a strong Halloran will lead a North and three you’re probably prog ram, well-coached, Haven offense that looks to done.

Youth football teams sweep opening week No r t h H ave n Yo u t h Football opened its 2013 campaign with a 4-0 week: The 8th graders opened the season with a 32-12 victory in East Haven. Joey Gargano scored the first TD of the season on a 40-yard run to put North Haven up 6-0. North Haven scored another TD on its next possession when Steven Erbe ran one in from 15 yards. Ricky Stober added an extra point kick to make it 14-0. East Haven did not have an answer in the first quarter. Jake Bencivengo scored the third North Haven touchdown on a 15-yard scamper up the middle to make it 20-0.

A TD run by Korbin Pecora put the locals ahead 26-6 at the half. Bencivengo had a 40-yard TD run in the third quarter. Jared Signore had an interception, and D.J. Fusco recovered a fumble to help contribute to a stellar defensive performance by North Haven. *** The 7th graders opened their season with a 26-6 victory over Wallingford. North Haven was led by Jamorea Hooks’ four touchdowns; scoring on a punt return, two rushing TDs and a 60-yard pass reception from Alex Ciaburro. Ci a b u r ro a n d Kev i n Spencer added extra points

for the Indians. North Haven was led on defense by Arron Bell, Michael Collins and Nick Dodge. *** The 6th grade squad defeated Wallingford 30-14. The Indians were led by Ethan Okwuosa, who opened the scoring with a 69-yard run. He also added a 71-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Max Riviera scored on a 6-yard run. Tyler Jacques added a 2-yard run and converted on three 2-point extra point kicks. Jeff Williston led the North Haven defense with six tackles. Donny McInnis had four. Joe Hendricks,

Chris Hansen, Joe Vitale and Justin White had three tackles apiece. *** The 5th grade team began its season with a 26-0 win over Wallingford. North Haven opened the scoring with a rushing TD by Anthony Rapuano, behind the blocking of Justin Nadolny, Chris Bracale and Ryan Ziaks. The next score came on a 50-yard touchdown pass from Rapuano to Isiah Earl. Rapuano ran in the extra point and scored again on the next kick-off, a 70 yard return. Hayden Tomlin capped the scoring on a 30-yard run. Justin Perillie connected

with Earl on the extra-point pass. The shut-out was led by top tacklers Aaron Barbiero, Matt Gargano, Zack Peters, Earl and Gino Schiavo. Perillie and Nadolny had interceptions.

“It’s just going to get bigger and stronger down the road” Except reaching voters, fully embracing all that technology has to offer campaigns is difficult for the local political parties, said Callahan. While larger campaigns have used online fundraising, and detailed databases of voters that allow them to target previously unreached pockets of voters, Callahan said its harder, or even not useful for local campaigns to use the technology. Campaign laws being what they are, Callahan was weary of fundraising online because of all the red tape. “It’s really difficult to do. You really have to run house parties or barbecues, dinners,” he said. Voter lists are public records, available at the Secretary of State office and town clerks’ offices. They include party affiliation, address, phone number and age.

“All the information that they put down when they register to vote,” Callahan said. Larger campaigns will buy lists with more detailed information about individual voters. Callahan said his local party is not trying to gather all they can about voters. He called big data collection for voter lists an “infringement on our rights” that falls into the category of phone tapping. The Southington Republican Town Committee doesn’t buy voting lists, but instead uses the public voter list. That amount of information is sufficient for running a local campaign, Callahan said. Kathleen Kokoszka, the Republican Town Committee chair for Middlefield, said direct mailings are the way her town committee reaches all the voters, even the ones not on the computer, or that read the newspapers. Older residents, she said, often do not have social media accounts. If they focused on social media, the candidates would exclude those voters. Kokoszka said social media was one part of a campaign. Ten years ago, campaigns simply went door-to-door, sent out mailings and placed ads in the newspapers. Now, there are more ways to reach voters. But, she added different strategies work in different places. Some towns have a lot of commercial areas. Other towns are larger than others. Different demographics. Door-to-door is beneficial for candidate and constituent, she said. When a candidate knocks on someone’s door, they are offering a personal forum with that voter, Kokoszka said. The candidate and the voter are able to sit down together. The voter can ask questions of the candidate and leave the meeting satisfied with the candidate’s answers. “That’s honest. It doesn’t get more honest than that,” she said. Of course, Kokoszka said, candidates don’t reach every voter that way. People don’t answer their doors, or perhaps they are not home. “Mailing reaches every home. Door-to-door gives the human contact,” she said.
