Local favorites to compete at dance benefit By Ken Liebeskind The North Haven Citizen

North Haven’s Laura Landino at last year’s Dancing with the Stars performs with a professional dancer as her partner. | (Submitted)

The fifth annual Dancing Under the Stars benefit for the Ronald McDonald House of Connecticut, co-sponsored by Kids for Kids, a North Haven fund-raising organization, takes place Feb. 28 at the Omni Hotel in New Haven. Two North Haven residents are among the six competitive dancers who will perform at the event and compete for prizes. Plus, three North Haven residents, who made the list of Fan Favorites from past events, will dance again and seek to be renamed the favorite for 2014. The event raised $27,000 last year and $70,000 the past four years for the Ronald McDonald House, a guest

house on George Street in New Haven where families of severely ill children stay while they are being treated at Yale-New Haven and other area hospitals, according to house director Cathy Bignolas. Joyce Altieri, owner of Flair for Hair in North Haven, is one of this year’s competitive dancers and has been training for the event at Dance in Rhythm in Branford. “I have zero dance experience and never had a dance lesson, but I’m learning to do the cha cha,” she said. “I didn’t know a lot about the Ronald McDonald House but I support it because I lost a sister to breast cancer and we pick a cause to support every year and last year we picked a child with brain

cancer whose family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House. It’s an amazing place and they helped her family.” Brenda Branigan, who runs Kids for Kids with her husband Richard, said the event is one of several the organization sponsors around the year that raises funds for sick and needy children. “We run the event together with Ronald McDonald House and seek out dancers and celebrities to be involved,” she said. The other competitive dancer from North Haven is Mario Landino, who owns the Paul Mitchell Beauty School on Washington Avenue. The Fan Favorite dancers returning this year include Richard Branigan, Larry See Dance / Page 9

‘Awesome’ toy bank helps with birthday wishes By Erin K. Butler Special to The Citizen

The North Haven Toy Bank is well known for its distribution during the holiday season, but what many may not know is that it’s available year round for parents to select items for their children’s birthdays. “After the Christmas season, all of the extra toys go into an oversized closet for storage,” said Carla Riccio, North Haven Department of Community Services. “With such a great selection of donated items, we decided to make the items available year-round for children’s birthdays.” To use the birthday toy bank, families must meet certain criteria, including being a resident of North Haven, providing legal paperwork

with children’s names and birth dates, completing an application, and showing proof of income eligibility. “We keep it fair and really for those in need,” said Riccio. Riccio said while nearly 50 families access the toy bank at Christmas, there has been a low response to the birthday bank, with an average of just 10 families a year using it for birthday needs. “This toy bank is a hidden gem and we would love to see new families who are eligible be able to take advantage of this service,” Riccio said. One North Haven mother, who has accessed the toy bank for Christmas, says in these hard times she was very appreciative to be able to use it for her son’s birthday over the last two years.

“Everyone involved at the toy bank was so wonderful and caring,” said Lisa, who asked to be identified by first name only. “It’s incredibly organized, confidential and private.” Access to the toy bank is by appointment and 24-hour notice is requested. Families are able take as much time as needed to shop and can choose two gifts per child. “I really want to thank everyone who has donated, it’s an awesome toy bank and I left with that picked-me-up feeling when I walked away,” Lisa said. The Community Services Commission oversees the toy bank as well as votes on protocols and changes made to the program. Toy donations are welcome, as well as food or retail gift card donations that

are distributed to the older children. Donations can be dropped off year round at the Town Hall Community Services office during busi-

ness hours, Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information or to apply, call Carla Riccio at (203) 239-5321 x780.

P&Z OKs two site plans By Ken Liebeskind The North Haven Citizen

Site plan applications for Merola Motors and BCFM Realty Two were approved by the Planning & Zoning Commission with minor alterations at the monthly meeting Feb. 3. Anthony Thompson from Plans Ahead, a Branford design firm, appeared before the panel to discuss a service bay that will be added to Merola Motors, 93 State St. The 28 by 38 foot service bay will be installed to accommodate work on large vehicles, including trucks. A five foot sidewalk will also be installed and Thompson said an issue of a boat parked in a wet-

lands area will be rectified and the boat will be moved. BCFM Realty Two’s plan for a storage room addition at its location at 52 Washington Ave. was approved after the commission discussed the company’s prior application that had been approved but not completed. The company had agreed to plant five cherry trees on the property in coordination with the North Haven Garden Club. The conditions of the original application remain in place so the cherry trees will have to be planted. In addition, the company must place curbs around the gas meters on the side of the building and provide enclosures for its dumpsters.

The North Haven High School Drama Club will perform “Chicago,” the renowned musical, at the Patricia Brozek Theater Feb. 27 to March 1. The drama club performs musicals every spring, but Chicago is unique. “The sharp edged satire features mature content and makes fun of a society that glorifies murderers and people who steal and cheat,” said Kathryn Monigan, high school social studies teacher who has been running the theater program for six years. “The Bob Fosse choreography is really challenging and specific.” A cast of 35 students will dance and sing “All that Jazz” and the other classic numbers from the Chicago score that was originally performed on Broadway in 1976 and won a number of Tony Awards. In addition to the cast, an orchestra of 20 to 25 members will play the music and will be positioned on stage instead of in front of it, “which helps the sound quality and puts the actors closer to the audience,” Monigan said. Re h e a r s a l s b e ga n i n December and have been held three times a week, but will be daily in February, Monigan said.

The nasty facts of stomach flu illness and does not occur in other organs of the body. There is a viral illness that strikes as described. It has occurred within the Quinnipiack Valley Health District community and across the state of Connecticut. More properly, this illness is usually called Norovirus infection or “winter vomiting disease” and is caused by norovirus (or one

of its variations.) It can make you feel very sick; even sick enough to go to the emergency room. The Centers for Disease Control offers the following information on the web page norovirus/?s_cid=fb578: • Noroviruses are a group of related viruses. They are the most common cause of

Norovirus is estimated to cause over 70,000 hospitalizations and 800 deaths each year in the United States. • Infection with these viruses affects the stomach and intestines. • Anyone can get infected with norovirus and become sick. • You can get norovirus more than once in your life. • Noroviruses are transmitted easily. It doesn’t take many viruses to cause illness. This virus is found in the stool and vomit of someone who is ill. If a little bit gets on food or an object, you can ingest the virus and become ill. • People are contagious from the moment they are sick until three days (or more) after they recover. • The illness often begins

suddenly. You may feel very sick, with stomach cramping, vomiting and diarrhea. Other symptoms can include lowgrade fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, and a general sense of fatigue. • Norovirus illness is usually not serious. Most people get better in one to two days. But it can be very serious in young children, the elderly and people with other health conditions. It can lead to severe dehydration. When vomiting, the last thing you want to think about is eating or drinking. But replacing fluids is very important so as not become dehydrated.

Police search for suspect in stabbing By Lauren Sievert Special to The Citizen

Earlier this week, North Haven police were searching for the suspect after a stabbing at a Citgo convenience store Feb. 3. Lt. Kevin Glenn, police spokesman, said the store’s only employee was stabbed in the back of the neck during a robbery late Monday night. The employee’s wife was nervous when her husband did not come home from work and wasn’t answering his cell phone after midnight, Glenn said.

GUILFORD — Philip L. Hill, of Guilford, formerly of North Haven, beloved son of Leonard and Susan Hill and beloved brother of Amy Hill, died on Jan. 29, 2014, at the age of 33. He was predeceased by his grandparents, Walter and Ruth Hill and Louis and Emily Griffin; and is survived by a large extended family of aunts, uncles, and cousins and by many friends he held dear. Philip grew up in North Haven, graduating in 1998 from North Haven High School where he was active in jazz band, soccer, tennis, Future Problem Solving, and the National Honor Society. Philip’s early love for computers led to majoring in computer science and engineering at UCLA for one year before beginning his career as a software engineer and consultant at companies in Santa Monica and West Hollywood, CA. An East Coast man at heart, he returned to CT in 2002 and established his own consulting businesses (Vernal Elm LLC and Vernal Technology LLC), working for such organizations as Citigroup Private Bank, IBM/EuroRSCG Circle, Tiger Lead Solutions, and, currently, Technical Resource Management, Inc. An enthusiastic and skilled software engineer, Philip said, “My ideal situation is one in which I can thrive on challenges, learn as I work, and implement new technologies.” His current employer described him as a gifted programmer. His mathematical and verbal skills contributed to his unique skill set. Philip combined his natural leadership skills and energy with great compassion for the poor, homeless, and disenfranchised, and for people who were mentally and emotionally troubled. He followed current events with avid interest and loved to engage friends and family in political discussions with a progressive focus, often suggesting common sense approaches to socio-economic issues. He was a friend you could count on to give good advice and warm support. A friend described him as “a good man with a big heart whom everyone liked.” We will miss Philip’s sharp wit, engaging personality, and his full commitment to the people and causes he loved. Funeral services will be conducted in the North Haven Funeral Home, 36 Washington Avenue, Monday, Jan. 3. Interment will be private and at the convenience of the family.

Transparency essential for good governance A s t he Con ne c t ic ut Genera l A ssembly be gins its 2014 session, the League of Women Voters of Connecticut believes this is an important opportunity to look at transparency in our state legislative process ... and to recommend changes that will hopefully enhance eff iciency and integrity. Many residents may not be aware of what often goes into the “sausage making” at the state legislature, to the dismay and frustration of advocates and the public alike. Strike-all amendments land on legislators’ desks shortly before a vote without time for review or public input, rules and exceptions get written into laws without public hearings, “rats” are buried in implementer and other bills, and legislation that dies in committee is given new life in a completely unrelated bill. While it’s true that people can point to good initiatives that have passed via this process, it would not seem to be the

best way “to do business.” For example, during the 2013 legislative session, significant changes in the state’s campaign finance law were adopted in the middle of the night with no opportunity for public scrutiny, and Keno gambling was approved in the final days of the session. The League believes that democratic government requires that governmental bodies protect our citizens’ right to know by giving adequate notice of proposed actions. To advance this goal, the league is recom mend i ng t h at the Connecticut General Assembly: • Require strike-all amendments to be printed and posted on the General Assembly’s website at least two legislative days prior to final passage; • Require substitute language to be available to the public prior to a committee vote. While there are many other ways to improve the process, these changes can P.O. Box 855 North Haven, CT 06473 Assistant News Editor – Nick Carroll Reporter – Dan Jackson News Editor – Olivia L. Lawrence Executive Vice President and Assistant Publisher – Liz White Senior Vice President of Operations and Major Accounts – Michael F. Killian Senior Vice President and Editor – Ralph Tomaselli

be an incremental start. Importantly, these changes can be instituted via the “rules” which are adopted at the outset of each legislative session. While they last for only this one legislative session, it’s a start ... and certainly a much less cumbersome process than a statuary change. Now, what can you do? To learn more about the issue, view a video of a conference sponsored last Fall by the Greater Hartford League of Women Voters featuring a panel of outstanding experts on this important topic. (To view, go to ). And most importantly, call or e-mail your legislators to express your own support for greater transparency in Connecticut’s governmental process as this new legislative session begins.

Malloy releases public comments from review period Press release On Jan. 31, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy released to his official state website hundreds of comments he received from members of the public during a recent two-month review period of state regulations that he initiated in an attempt to identify those that are obsolete, duplicative, excessively burde n s om e , or ot he r w i s e ineffective or unnecessary. The governor intends to use the comments as a guide as he seeks to streamline state regulations across the board during the upcoming

legislative session. State departments and agencies have also been conducting an ongoing internal review of regulations. “Engaging the public in a conversation about state regulations is an important component in our efforts to make state government more efficient, more transparent and more responsive to Connecticut citizens and businesses,” Malloy said.

Foley announces new bid for governor By John Christoffersen Associated Press

WATERBURY (AP) — Republican Tom Foley, who narrowly lost to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy four years ago, announced Jan. 29, he is making another run for governor and promised to cut the sales tax and help cities address crime, poverty and other issues. The Greenwich man announced his decision at a VFW post in Waterbury, underscoring his effort to win votes in cities where Democrats have traditionally had an advantage. “Connecticut’s future is really as good as the future of our cities,” said Foley, a former U.S. ambassador to Ireland who spent more than $10 million of his own money on his losing bid in 2010. Malloy, a Democrat, has yet to announce whether he will seek a second term this

year. Foley’s running m a te f ro m the last race, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, has already joined the Tom Foley field of Republican candidates, which also includes Senate Minority Leader John McKinney. Foley said he would keep discretionary spending flat for two years to cut the sales tax by half a percent. He also promised to implement an agenda to help cities by focusing on schools, crime, jobs, housing and poverty. He said he would introduce inter-district school choice in schools not performing well, and promised not to interfere with local control of schools that are doing well. See Foley / Page 11

Foley From Page 10

Foley slammed Malloy for a large tax increase, saying it put a brake on the economy. He said jobs are still hard to find and many people are unhappy with what’s happening in Connecticut. “Many believe that the state’s prospects have declined and the future is more uncertain than before,” Foley said. “I agree with those who believe we need a new direction and new leadership in Connecticut.” Waterbury Mayor Neil O’Leary, delivering the Democrats’ response, said Foley’s announcement was filled with promises. But “there were no specific details on anything, quite frankly.” O’Leary said the tax increase was needed to close a $3.5 billion deficit that Malloy inherited. He said the tax hike was painful but necessary and fair, and provided funding to cities. Malloy has been good to cities, O’Leary said, citing funding to clean up polluted properties and new businesses. Foley is seeking to qualify for public financing but said he has not made a decision

yet on whether to use the money or not. Foley lost to Malloy by 6,404 votes. Since then, Foley created the Connecticut Policy Institute, a public policy research group that examines state issues. State Republicans are scheduled to endorse a candidate in mid-May, although a primary appears likely. Both McKinney and Boughton are among the candidates collecting the small contributions necessary to qualify for public campaign financing. Candidates for governor must raise $250,000 in contributions of $100 or less to participate in the program. McKinney, of Fairfield, raised $134,167 by the end of last year. Boughton, the seven-term Danbury mayor, reported a 2013 total of nearly $130,000. Foley has raised $131,827 after forming an exploratory committee. Candidates at the exploratory stage can accept contributions up to $375, but only those of up to $100 count toward qualifying for public financing. Wilton state Sen. Toni Boucher, who is also considering a run for governor, raised $66,659.

the third quarter. The score was 48-24 going into the fourth quarter. The ta llest player for North Haven (2-11 at press time) is 6-foot-2 freshman forward Jack Steinman. Steinman f inished the Career game with seven points. “We’ve had a tough schedule this season,” North Haven coach Peter Civitello lamented. “It’s been challenging. We’ve played Career twice, Wilbur Cross twice. We’ll end up playing Xavier and Notre Dame twice. We played in a tough Christmas tournament at the start of the season. We have been competitive in all our games. We are lacking height.” Ca re er M a g net (1 3 -1 , 5-0 Southern Connecticut Conference) used its size to consistently keep North Haven away from the backboard. The Indians finished with only 18 rebounds and one blocked shot. The Indians are led this season by Lopez, who averages 14 points, and senior forward Matt Defrancesco with 12.1 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. North Haven plays in the SCC and owns a division record of 1-4. North Haven opened the season with 41-33 win at Lyman Hall. Unfortunately, the locals proceeded to go on a seven-game losing streak, which included a 56-40 loss at Wilbur Cross on Jan. 16 in which play was suspended with just over three minutes left in the third quarter due to a bench-clearing brawl. Due the incident, Lopez was ejected from the game and suspended for the next two contests. “Josh was suspended for the Branford and Shelton games,” Civitello said. Jan. 17, North Haven beat East Haven 52-50. But the Indians would lose their next four games.

Girls for the second time we play them,” Barry said. The coach said the team emphasizes defensive execution. “We feed off pressure on the defensive end. We use multiple defenses and mix it up with full court pressure. We have kids that like to play physical, up-tempo.” Seniors Brianne Melillo and Kyla Searles and junior Jill Johnson are this year’s tri-captains, with Johnson making the All-Oronoque Division team last year. The girls’ strategy for qualifying for the states is to play with a renewed attitude. “We have a brand new ap-

proach, more cheering each other on and being there for each other,” Johnson said. “We’re approaching the game differently and coming together as a team,” Melillo said. North Haven made it to the state tournament last year and lost a first-round matchup to RHAM.
