Workers put the finishing touches on a new playscape at Canna Park on May 2, completing a renovation which started last year. The effort has transformed the park into a sports and recreation center for the neighborhood. Two tennis courts and a basketball court were previously refurbished. “They finished up the playscape, which was the last piece of the puzzle,” said Lynn Sadosky, director of Public Works. “We took out the stakes and caution tape so it’s all set and kids were playing on it this weekend.” North Haven received $127,240 from the state’s Small Town Economic Assistance program to pay for the repairs.

C. Cowles & Company relocates to former plant By Ken Liebeskind The North Haven Citizen

First Selectman Mike Freda has said the reason North Haven can increase spending on the 2014-2015 budget, while not raising taxes, is due to the town’s increase in topline revenue. That message rang clear with his announcement May 1 that C. Cowles & Company, a metal stamping company that manufactures parts for U.S. and Japanese automobiles, will move into the old Marlin Firearms plant on Kenna Drive later this year. “Bringing manufacturing here will serve us well and it produces profitable tax dollars and jobs,” Freda said.

C. Cowles will centralize its operation in North Haven, beginning in July when it consolidates its Massachusetts division here before transferring its New Haven headquarters later this year and next year. Lawrence Moon, president of C. Cowles, said, “We’ll start the transition from Massachusetts to North Haven, which will take three months. Then we’ll move the division from New Haven into the facility.” He said some employees from the East Longmeadow, Mass. facility will relocate to North Haven and all of the New Haven employees will. “But not everyone from Massachusetts will be coming

down so we’ll be adding 60 jobs and we’re already hiring people,” he said. “We’re looking forward to working with the town of North Haven, bringing jobs into town and using the facility,” Moon said. Moon said the large space in North Haven will be ideal for his business. “The facility in Massachusetts wasn’t suited for the operation and the lease was expiring. We’ll put the businesses together and get everything into a single operation.” Marlin Firearms closed in North Haven in 2011 after moving into its 225,000 See Plant / Page 2

North Haven is one step closer to a renovated middle school after town members voted unanimously to approve $199,250 in pre-referendum design costs at a special town meeting Tuesday night. The voice vote occurred quickly after the meeting started with comments from Gary Johns, chairman of the Middle School Building Committee. The committee planned the project that is being designed by Perkins Eastman, an architectural firm that displayed schematic drawings of the design for the project. The plan is to renovate a portion of the school and construct a new two story classroom wing. Gary Amato was the only town member to speak out in opposition of the renovation project, arguing it is too expensive and the town

could spend less to repair the roof. But he left before the vote took place, and there we no votes in opposition to the pre-referendum funding. Amato also said he will vote against the middle school at the June 17 referendum, when the town will be asked to approve a project that will cost about $64 million, according to Perkins Eastman estimates. With state subsidies of $14 to $17 million, the total cost to the town will be lowered to $47 to $50 million. First Selectman Mike Freda said will take 17 years to repay and add $3 million a year to the town’s debt service. A number of residents also asked about the two soccer fields that are part of the design plan. The plan calls for natural grass fields with no amenities. However, residents seek artificial turf, bleachers and See School / Page 2

After the Marlins plant closed, Freda said, “Connecticut is a difficult state for any manufacturer to sustain its business model.” C. Cowles relocation to North Haven “is a wonderful thing when a Massachusetts company comes to North Haven and our state is losing manufacturing.” The relocation of C. Cowles to North Haven is one of a variety of new economic developments in town. At the May 1 selectmen’s meeting, Freda also noted a Comcast service center will open at Best Buy Plaza and an ASAP urgent care center will open on Washington Avenue.

Curbside voting now available Curbside voting is available at the town referenda and general elections, according the North Haven Registrars of Voters. Curbside voting is for citizens who are able to be present at the polling place, but unable to gain access due to a temporary physical incapacity. A ballot will be brought to the car or “curbside.” No proof of any incapacity need be shown to utilize curbside voting. Drive up to the handicap parking spaces outside the voting district. Once curb-

side voting is requested, both assistant registrars (election officials of opposing parties) will come out, examine your identification, return to the polling place and mark your name as “voting.” They will then bring a ballot, marking pen and privacy folder. The assistant registrars will cast the ballot into the tabulator. To request curbside voting, call the registrars of voters office on the day of the election at (203) 239-5321, ext. 640 and request curbside voting. Identification at the polling place is required.

tinues overnight into Sunday, June 29. “We run the track for 24 hours, cancer doesn’t sleep so why should we?” said Dave Ryan, Relay for Life specialist at the American Cancer Society. Teams of eight to 15 participants will walk around the track. “It’s not a race, so not all participants are on the track at the same time, it’s like a relay,” Ryan said. The event begins at 10 a.m. on June 28 with a survivor’s lap at 10:05 a.m. “Last year

there were 69 survivors at the event and we held a survivor’s luncheon after the opening ceremony,” he said. A caregivers lap follows. “We’re unique in that we do overnights,” Ryan said. “There are 5,200 relay events in the U.S. and in 22 countries.” Last year, 411 individuals participated in the North Haven/Hamden event and $94,000 was raised. Almost four million people participated in relay events in the U.S. last year, one percent of the nation’s residents. Relay for Life began in 1985 in Tacoma, WA when a doctor circled a track fro 24 hours at the University of Puget Sound and raised $27,000 to fight cancer. This year will be the 13th for the North Haven Hamden Relay for Life event. Volunteers and relay teams are needed for this year’s Relay for Life event.

All fresh menu at Small Kitchen Big Taste



By Ken Liebeskind The North Haven Citizen

Small Kitchen Big Taste, which goes by the nickname SKBT, is a prepared foods and catering company that specializes in fresh, whole real foods from tempting entrees to delicious desserts. The store on Sackett Point Road opened in October and “retail traffic has been building by word of mouth,” said Karen Lenahan, a New Haven resident who started the business. “It’s a good location with nice traffic and right off the highway. It’s a space I can do a lot in,” she said. Lenahan and Sarah Fitzmaurice, a professional chef, prepare the foods, which can be bought at the store or ordered for delivery at the store’s website, New menus are posted daily. “We have different stuff on the menu and make everything here, it’s all fresh,” she said. “We have hormone free, grass-fed meats, seasonal fruits and vegetables and Connecticut eggs and milk. It’s gluten-free, paleo-friendly

In Memory of My Angel Who is in Heaven

MARY HADJIAN CHITJIAN Born in Cairo Egypt 2/4/36-5/14/13

Journey I kissed your last glance and your tears. You gave me your hand and said fare well as I kissed you. You forgave people who ignored you, And you were worthy of Heaven. Even death could not separate us, two hearts that tremble to the same beat. But life, so unfair, parted us from each other, so that I live now without you. You meet our dear ones on your journey. They extend their hand to you on the way to Heaven. When you reach there with them, live eternally surrounded with them. If I am worthy of reaching Heaven I’ll search for you. Seeing your face will be like light. Taking my hand and bringing me next to you, I’ll join you in Eternity.

Share a good Commentary laugh for Mother’s Day At 90, memories remain vivid of wartime Poland While Mother’s Day is filled with sentiment and warmfuzzy thoughts — as well it should be — there’s another side of motherhood to explore. There are lots of moms who appreciate how much a sense of humor can help when it comes to the world’s toughest job. We’ve gathered a few famous quotes on the topic from a range of observers. Share a laugh with your mother this Mother’s Day and see which of these funny quotes rings true for her experience. — The editors “I want my children to have all the things I couldn’t afford. Then I want to move in with them.” - Phyllis Diller “The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for 30 years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.” - Calvin Trillin “A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” - Tenneva Jordan “My mother’s menu consisted of two choices: Take it or leave it.” - Buddy Hackett “Any mother could perform the jobs of several air-traffic controllers with ease.” - Lisa Alther “My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.” - Mark Twain “If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?” - Milton Berle “When your mother asks, ‘Do you want a piece of advice?’ it is a mere formality. It doesn’t matter if you answer yes or no. You’re going to get it anyway.” - Erma Bombeck (And a few last thoughts from that prolific writer “author unknown.”) Wo rk i n g m o t h e rs a re guinea pigs in a scientific experiment to show that sleep is not necessary to human life. - Unknown “I’d like to be the ideal mother, but I’m too busy raising my kids.” - Unknown “To the world you might just be one person, but to one person you might be the world.” - Unknown

By Rev. John Gwozdz Special to The Citizen

In March, my mother marked her 90th birthday. It was a small celebration, in keeping with her “don’t make a fuss” attitude. Now, at a time when people are living longer, marking nine decades of life is not unusual. But I mention my mother’s achievement because, for her, some of those years were quite unusual, to say the least. She grew up in Poland during the Second World War. For her, life under the Nazi occupation was something she and her family had to deal with everyday. And then, later, the Soviets pushed in on the eastern side and that posed its own hardships. My mother’s memories are similar to what many civilians had to endure during that terrible time. I had heard her stories often while growing up, but lately, I’ve been writing them down to preserve them and share them with my family and friends. My mother was born in Adams, Mass. to parents who were immigrants from Poland. She was the fourth of seven children. When she was one and a half years old, her father, my grandfather, got word from his mother that his older brother had died. That meant that he had to pack up the family and go back to Poland to take care of the farm in the village of Frysztak. And so, while my mother was born in America, she is culturally Polish; she was

born an American citizen but she was raised and educated in Poland. So were her brothers and sisters. Life on the farm was quiet, but that all changed in 1939 when the second World War broke out with an invasion of Poland. My mother was 15-years-old at the time. It was practically impossible to be anywhere in Poland and not be affected by the fighting. My mother’s village was often caught in the crossfire. One day her father, my grandfaGwozdz ther, noticed that a hay wagon on the farm was missing and so he went to look for it. Nazi soldiers suspected him of being a spy and they took him in for interrogation. For three weeks no one knew where he was until he was released. At another time, young men from the village were rounded up against their will and they were taken to a labor camp. Mom’s oldest brother, my uncle Julian, was forced to work as part of a road construction crew in Bavaria. His family didn’t know if he was dead or alive for three years until he came home. My mother’s village had a large Jewish population. She had many Jewish classmates before the war, but after the war only one was left. She told me of a day when, as she walked to the post office, she saw soldiers execute a Jewish man across the street.

On her way back home, she saw two more Jewish men being killed; one was the town baker. One day, Nazi soldiers on the way to the eastern front stole livestock on the farm and set fire to what my mom called the “old house.” Rifles were pointed at her and her family to prevent them from putting out the blaze. Later, when the soldiers left, they scurried to put out the fire so it wouldn’t spread to the “new house” next door. When Soviet soldiers advanced west, they occupied the “new house” for a time, while my mom and her family took refuge in a root cellar. Her mother, my grandmother, caught pneumonia from the damp conditions and never recovered. After the war, there was little left for them in Poland and so, over the course of several years, they went back to America. As American citizens, my mother and her siblings had easy entry, but my grandfather’s return was not so smooth. It took the efforts of a senator and congressman from Massachusetts to cut through the red tape. About a year after she arrived, my mom met my father and she settled into a quiet life and raised three children, including me. She was determined to learn English. Even today, when she’s reading a newspaper or book, there’s always an English- Polish dictionary at her side. For a long time I wasn’t sure if she wanted to go back to Poland. Finally, in 1994 I asked her and when she

agreed I went with her. I took five hours of video. Now, of course, my mother’s life wasn’t all gloom and doom. She, along with my aunts and uncles made the most of life, and family gatherings were always filled with laughter. But six of my mother’s 90 years were spent during the war. They were the defining years of her life. And, of course, she wasn’t alone. Stories like hers could be told by thousands and even millions of people who lived through those same terrible times. But, for all of that, my mom doesn’t speak of those years with bitterness. What got her through was the strong support of her family and the even stronger faith in God they all shared. It was faith in God’s incredible love that gave my mother, and people like her, hope, incredible hope in the face of incredible trials. During the hardship of the second World War, it was the faith of my mother, and people like her, that helped them to hear God’s voice of comfort and strength — strength that gave them patience and resilience. God provided for my mother every day of her 90 years. He provides for her now as she enjoys the care she receives in an assisted living facility. And it is with her kind of faith that I can hope and pray that God will continue to provide for her, and people like her, all the days of their lives. Rev. John Gwozdz serves at St. Thomas Becket Church.

Sports Anthony Longley throws out first pitch on opening day By Ken Liebeskind

The North Haven Citizen

First Selectman Mike Freda usually throws out the first pitch to open the Max Sinoway Baseball League season, but this year the honor went to Anthony Longley, a 7-yearold Clintonville Elementary School student who is fighting a severe brain tumor. Chip Meyers, president of the baseball league, said Anthony will play for a team this season and wishes him the best. “We’re looking forward to a great season,” he said. Meyers welcomed players and their families to the opening day event, which took place May 4 at Montowese Park, where games are played on fields that have been manicured by the Public Anthony Longley (#4) threw out the first pitch on the Max Sinoway baseball league opening day. | Ken Liebeskind\the North Haven Citizen. Works Department.

It is the 63rd year of league games and the 75th anniversary of Little League International baseball, founded in Williamsport, Penn in 1939. Meyers said 410 North Haven boys and girls, ages 4 to 12, are playing this year on 34 teams in four divisions. Freda, the other selectmen and state Rep. Dave Yaccarino attended opening day festivities. Freda said, “Youth sports develops camaraderie, teamwork and discipline and helps connect the community.” Yacarrino told the players to “have a great season and make a lot of friends.” Opening day was held May 4 after being canceled by inclement weather April 26. It was a cool, windy day but sunny, typical spring baseball weather for a town that truly enjoys it.

Special recognition award for North Haven gridders By Nate Brown

Special to The Citizen

The North Haven High School football program was awarded the first annual Bo Kolinsky Special Recognition Award at the 73rd Gold Key Dinner for its work with Matthew Jacques, a North Haven boy who was suffering from a congenital heart defect. The dedication and compassion the Indians showed towards the local 6-year-old was applauded at the Gold Key event, held April 27 at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville. “I think it’s great. We worked so hard, and it’s kind of nice to receive an accolade on top of playing the season for Matthew,” Ethan Suraci, a senior captain, said. During the past few years, the North Haven football team has worked to raise money for various charities. This past season, senior captain Alex Baglioni learned of Matthew’s condition, and thought the youngster’s plight would be the perfect

cause to get behind. “It was a great opportunity to help someone from our community,” Baglioni said. “It was a great impact on the community, and the whole community came together as a family.” One of the highlights of the year came when the Indians allowed Matthew, who couldn’t take part in contact sports due to his condition, to score a touchdown in the team’s annual Spring Brawl game. “All of the fire trucks and police officers were there, so after he scored, everyone did the bomb, where Matthew spiked the ball and we all fell to the ground,” Suraci recalled. “We came up, started cheering, and raising him up above. The crowd started cheering, and the fire trucks were going nuts.” Aside from adopting Matthew as part of the team, the Indians were able to raise $13,000 to help the Jacques’ family with medical expenses. Other surrounding high

The North Haven High School football program receives the first annual Bo Kolinsky Special Recognition Award at the 73rd Gold Key Dinner. | Nate Brown / The Citizen schools heard of North Haven’s cause and made donations. Xavier, Branford and East Haven all contributed. Matthew passed away in late September due to complications from a heart transplant he received weeks earlier. North Haven coach Tony Sagnella gathered his team in the locker room to

share the tragic news. “Right when we heard the news, I mean … this kid was pretty much our brother, and dealing with that was really hard,” Suraci said. “It was like losing a teammate. Obviously, tears were had.” Through it all, the Indians persevered, finished the regular season 9-2, and qualified

for the state playoffs. The Gold Key Dinner is sponsored by the Connecticut Sports Writer Alliance. The Bo Kolinsky Special Recognition Award is named in honor of former Hartford Courant editor Bo Kolinsky, a longtime member of the CSWA who passed away in 2003.
