34th-District candidates debate economics By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

State senate candidates for Connecticut’s 34th District — which includes North Haven – debated economic policies and other campaign issues on Oct. 24 at a forum televised within NHTV. Sponsored by the nonpartisan Hamden/North Haven

League of Women voters, the debate featured Republican incumbent and Senate Minority Leader Pro Tempore (second in command) Len Fasano, and his challenger, former 14-year North Haven state Rep. Steve Fontana, Democrat. Fontana, who also served North Haven as second and third selectmen, a former

Football dealt a losing hand By Kevin Pataky Special to The Citizen

North Haven High School’s varsity football team took on the Tigers from Daniel Hand High School last Friday night in a SCC interdivision matchup. “It’s a big stage for us, a great opportunity for us to

play the best team in Connecticut right now,” said NHHS football head coach Anthony Sagnella. “This is the direction we want to head. We’re trying to compete at that level. And there’s nothing better for that than getting on the field with Hand.” After a scoreless first

quarter, Hand scored first on a 27-yard touchdown pass from Brendan Bilcheck to Matt Sullivan. Tyler Phan’s point-after attempt was good to put the Tigers up by a score of 7-0. North Haven responded with a 7-yard touchdown by See Football, page 18

Sandy knocks out power, delays Halloween By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Hurricane Sandy churned over North Haven earlier this week and left in her wake a trail of physical damage and power outages. As of Wednesday, 3,771 residences and businesses in town were still without electricity. “We are working in my office with

[North Haven power provider] United Illuminating constantly,” said First Selectman Michael Freda on Oct. 31. “We have UI representatives here with us.” “We have crews out in town cleaning up trees that have fallen, de-energizing wires, removing wires from the roadways,” he added. See Sandy, page 9

Woman accused of check forgery By Richie Rathsack Special to The Citizen

A North Haven woman has been accused of altering and cashing a check from Hunter’s Ambulance of Meriden in August. Alyssa Brenner, 27, of 61 Lancelot Drive, turned herself in to Meriden police Tuesday and was charged with third-degree larceny and third-degree forgery. The police spokesman, Detective Lt. Mark Walerysiak, said police were called by Hunter’s after an employee noticed a bookkeeping dis-

crepancy. The company had issued a check for $670 to pay a bill, but the check had been cashed for $3,378, Walerysiak said. When the ambulance company contacted the bank, an official there said the cashed check was made out to Brenner; the check had been sent out by Hunter’s payable to a business, Walerysiak said. The bank told police about recent increases in washand-alter scams, in which people steal checks from the mail and change the payee information and amount, Walerysiak said.

The check had been altered, but still looked enough like a legitimate check that the bank did not find it suspicious, Walerysiak said. Detectives got a photograph of Brenner and compared it to the video footage of the check being cashed, Walersiak said. Brenner was released on $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court Nov. 6. Richie Rathsack reports for the Record-Journal, Meriden. Follow him on Twitter @rrathsack

Motor vehicle accident The North Haven Fire Department responded to a report of a motor vehicle accident with injuries requiring extrication on Saturday, Oct. 20, at 2:54 a.m. Fire department units arrived to find a one car motor vehicle accident with one occupant trapped inside with three others outside the vehicle. The vehicle had rolled over and was found in the yard of an abutting residence. Rapid extrication was performed on the occupant trapped in the motor vehicle and the occupant was immediately transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital. Remaining survivors were transported to both Yale New Haven Hospital and Saint Raphael’s Hospital. The accident is under investigation by the North Haven Police Department. Submitted by the NHFD.

First Selectman Michael J. Freda announced that the Town of North Haven and Veolia Water North America have been awarded the 2012 Service Award by the National Council for Public Private Partnerships.

We all need heroes in our lives By Paul Colella Special to The Citizen

When I was a boy, adults I knew went to the trouble of helping me find a few heroes. At first, the ones I admired most were not peoColella ple I knew personally, but public figures who possessed qualities of human excellence worth striving for: baseball and football players who persevered on and off the field, famous explorers and pioneers from the pages of history who

dared to face the unknown, cowboys from Hollywood Westerns who rode hard and stood up for what deserved to be loved and protected. As I grew older, I learned that heroes and heroines could be found closer to home, too —neighbors, friends, and members of my own family. In all of them, there was certain nobility, a largeness of soul, a hitching up of one’s own purposes to higher purposes — to something that demanded endurance or sacrifice or courage or compassion. Looking back, I see how lucky I was that so many of

my teachers thought it was worth their time to help me pick the right kind of heroes. As every parent and grandparent knows, children imitate what they see

I’ve gone door-to-door, many people have told me that they think it’s already gone, that it’s a few rich people and the rest of us. I reject that notion, but I do believe that this election is about rebuilding the middleclass.” “We have a choice,” Fontana continued. “My opponent . . . has bought into a failed ideological philosophy: that trickle-down economics is how we get out of this recession.

and it’s never worked. What we need to do is to invest in people and in businesses and get them the opportunities to succeed.” “With interest rates at historic lows, we need to be investing in infrastructure projects, like rebuilding North Haven middle school or Spring Road Bridge,” Fontana added. “During my time as a state representative, I was the chair of two committees and got dozens of bills passed, most of them unanimously. I was proud of that, as well as the number of state dollars I was able to bring back to town for important projects.” Fasano, who’s also a lawyer and small-business owner, agreed about the importance of the 2012 election. “Connecticut is in a crisis,” Fasano said. “We have the highest taxes of a state in the nation. We just got off the largest tax increase in

Connecticut’s history. We raised the sales tax from 6 to 6.35 percent. We tax non-prescription drugs for the first time in state history. We’re now taxing clothing under 50 dollars. And with all that, we had a $200 million dollar deficit last year. For this year we’re looking at a $60 million dollar deficit already, plus there is a $100 million dollars in Medicaid in Connecticut that’s unfunded.” “This is not the right path,” he continued. “We spend too much money. My opponent has indicated that my ideas don’t work. My idea was not to create all these taxes on the working family. We have siphoned the money out of the economy.” “As a small-business man, I understand how impossible Connecticut makes it to run a small business,” Fasano added. “The vision that my opponent has bought into is raising taxes and spending

money. That has caused us nine-percent unemployment. We’ve got to reduce taxes and open up the job market by making it easier for businesses to thrive in this state and change the direction that we’re going.” Moderator and longtime broadcaster Kenn Venit asked how the candidates would help decrease Connecticut’s unemployment rate. “I agree that we need to rebuild the middleclass, but I have a different vision,” Fasano said. “The first thing we need to do is roll back those tax increases that we put into effect. We raised the sales tax from 6 to 6.35 – that hurts the senior citizens and working families. Our sales receipts in this state are dropping, and they’re dropping because people don’t have money. Rolling back taxes would put money back into the middleclass families

and seniors who are out of money right now.” Fasano backed investment in education, and probusiness legislation. “We need to make Connecticut more business-friendly,” he said. “We’re within the top five most indebted states in the nation. Our bond rating has dropped, so borrowing money costs more. We have to make our state a more economical solvent machine. It’s not a coincidence that, after the largest tax increase in state history, our unemployment has been skyrocketing.” Fontana reiterated that it was essential to “rebuild the heart of middleclass.” “We need to be getting capital to entrepreneurs, small businesses and those companies in emerging markets that can create goodpaying jobs here in ConSee Debate, page 7

Veterans appreciated

An East Haven military veteran, who served his country on active duty for 22 years, including deployment during World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, expressed his appreciation recently for free admission to the upcoming pancake breakfast sponsored by the North Haven Rotary Club. Dan Gertsch, a regular patron at Annie’s Kitchen Restaurant in the Montowese section of North Haven, received five free “veterans’ tickets” for the event from the club’s public relations chair. The restaurant’s owner, Cindy Vanacore, described the pleasant octogenarian as Retired Sergeant Dan Gertsch, a veteran of three wars, “such a wonderful man.” In addition to his son, the once dreamed of joining the Civil Air Patrol, but said career veteran will join three that his family could not finance the training, so he friends who were former “joined the Navy to see the world.” POW’s, gathering at the North Haven Middle School on Veterans Day, Nov. 11 for the fourth annual all-you-can-eat breakfast staffed by the local service club from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The affable senior, whose noteworthy patriotic service began as a young teenager with a one year stint as a Merchant Marine, served during the war in the U.S. Navy on a destroyer until 1949. The man known to his friends as “Sarge” said that soon after that he “tried to re-enlist in the Navy in 1950 because war broke out in Korea,” but quickly added, “Because their quota was filled, I joined the Army, served in Korea, and stayed through Vietnam.” The retired sergeant (E-7) ended his brief comments before returning to his coffee by proudly noting that he was even “on call” during the Persian Gulf.

Debate Continued from page 4

necticut, like renewable energies,” Fontana said. “Second thing is that we need to make sure that higher education is more affordable so that people can get into the jobs that we have. And that’s why I’ve talked about promoting cooperative programs, so that people can do work study together in a comprehensive way, like Northeastern University does, and, along with that, promoting college-business partnerships. “Finally, we can get discretionary income back into middleclass people’s hands so we can stimulate demand,” Fontana added. “Reducing healthcare costs and energy costs will help reduce the burden on middleclass families and seniors, and help them stimulate the economy.”

Among several questions posed to both candidates, Venit asked whether they would support greater transparency in funding of political advertisements. “We tried to pass a law last year about disclosure laws but it went too far,” Fasano said. “Governor Malloy vetoed the bill for good reason. But I think that we should revisit disclosure laws that don’t go too far, revisit ways to know who’s funding what, who are the people behind the mirrors. You should be able to know who’s saying what, so people can judge what’s being said based upon who’s saying it.” In response, Fontana said, “The bottom line is that disclosure is good but it’s not sufficient. It’s helpful to have disclosure, but people put too much stock into it. Disclosure can be inaccurate, incomplete and late. The problem is that people who talk

about how they love disclosure don’t want to talk about how they then try to evade it once it’s in place.” In closing, Fontana said, “I have a specific plan, which you can see at my website,, which states what we can do to start rebuilding the middleclass and what I will work on at the Capitol as your state senator. Here in Connecticut, we work together, Democrats and Republicans, and it’s about who can get work done. Over the course of my time as a state representative, I got a lot accomplished, in terms of bills I got passed to fight for the middleclass and seniors, to promote economic security, and a lot in

terms of what I brought back to North Haven. And I think that’s what the people want: someone who can work with both sides of the aisle to get things done.” “I think my opponent, if you gave him some truth serum, would probably agree that when I was chairing committees I did things the right way,” Fontana continued. “When it came to energy costs and prices, I came up with a plan to bring costs down, and my opponent voted with me. The problem is, we haven’t moved that forward, we haven’t challenged the status quo when it comes to the energy corporations, the insurance corporations. There’s too much power in

their hands and too little in ours and as a result we end up spending too much.” In closing, Fasano said, “My opponent doesn’t believe that we’re taxing too much in Connecticut. I do. We have taxed our way into a huge problem and nine-percent unemployment. And I don’t need truth serum to tell the truth. I tell the truth. In the four years my opponent chaired the energy committee, only two bills came out.” A longtime Democrat majority in the state’s legislative General Assembly hasn’t been bipartisan enough, Fasano suggested. “I believe Connecticut needs a better

Heroes Continued from page 3

ence between the two is that while the hero is known for worthy actions, the celebrity is known for being well known). And often, especially in our times, the behaviors for which many celebrities are famous are not worthy of imitation. But little children don’t know that. They can’t foresee that some pedestals, in time, turn out to be shaky and come crashing down. So it makes a big difference whether or not adults make efforts to point out what actions merit honor and which individuals deserve to be admired. The true heroes and heroines give young people targets to aim for and examples to follow. Their tales, stories, and good intentions come to life in the hearts and imaginations of children. Some of these heroes and heroines

are doers of ancient, famous deeds (“mighty men and women which were of old, men and women of renown,” as the Book of Genesis has it) — shining victors, knights in armor, adventurers on the high seas. Their stories often unfold in far-off places, dusty plains, stormy seas, dark dungeons, and high castles. Theirs are tales of epic drama, battles against overwhelming odds, daring rescues, struggles to the death, and triumphs of good over evil. But in truth, most heroes are not men and women of great renown. They live close by and, more often than not, perform deeds noticed by only a few. We will find those kinds of heroes here, too. They come from every walk of life—boys and girls, mothers and fathers, grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, siblings, men

and women of God, teachers, a neighbor lending a helping hand, the policeman or fireman around the corner, the doctor or nurse down the street, a veteran next door, a senior citizen sitting in the park, or the coach on the field. These individuals and others win our admiration by committing the sort of acts every one of us might be called upon to perform — by offering some unseen gesture of compassion, by taking a quiet stand for what is right, by managing to hang on just one minute longer, by offering some words of wisdom from a lifetime of experience, or perhaps by persevering through a lifetime of struggle and toil. Some of the heroes and heroines we read about or hear stories about are real people. They have lived and breathed, just as you and I. Some that come to mind are

Something happens when you don’t advertise...

George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Abigail Adams, Molly Pitcher, Helen Keller, Mother Teresa, Father Flanagan, Martin Luther King, Jr., John F. Kennedy, Jackie Robinson, Mickey Mantle, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Dolley Madison, Neil Armstrong, and many others. Others tread only the worlds of our imaginations. Some include Paul Bunyan, Theseus of Ancient Greece, Cinderella, Snow White, and others. But factual or fictional, they all put a face on and give a meaning to heroism, and are worth imitating. It is important to have a few heroes in our lives, because believing in the heroic can help make each and every one of us a little bit

better day in and day out. If adults and children are to reach for the best, they need to have a picture of the best. Our favorite heroes and heroines live forever in their stories and in our memories, cheering us forward in our brave fights in our daily lives, and presenting splendid tales of the valor and indomitable spirit that are a lasting testament to our cherished values.

Letters to the Editor

Questionable change

To the editor: This is the second time this year I find myself having to write a “Letter to the Editor” over my concerns of things happening in North Haven. The first was the bussing change that was passed without any public comment. The second concern is the zoning change to 352 State Street. Again, there was no public comment about this beforehand — you just read about the change in zoning after the fact. The Zoning Dept. approved a change to 352 State Street from a vocational school to a medical office. Sounds pretty standard. However, the office going into this space is the APT Foundation. For those of you unfamiliar with APT, it is a clinic which provides

methadone and buprenorphine outpatient services to their patients, as part of their offering. While I understand there are about 400 families in North Haven that use their services, I feel that this medical office is much too close to Ridge Road Elementary School — it’s practically in its backyard (there is an entrance to the school on Hartford Turnpike). That is just too close to our school children. If West Haven put up a fight, why doesn’t North Haven? West Haven residents opposed a site at 855 Boston Post Road because it was too close to a school. If you want to learn more about this, please come to the public meeting that the town has arranged. It will be held on Monday, Nov. 5 at 6 p.m. in the Recreation Center. We need to hear both pro and con opinions on this issue. Attending the meeting

will be APT’s CEO, chairman of the board, and staff. First Selectman Michael Freda will also be attending. Bridget AustiguyPreschel North Haven

Achievements To the editor: Join me in voting for Senator Len Fasano and State Representative Dave Yaccarino. Together in Hartford, they will continue voting for what’s best for our children, families and senior citizens, including veterans. They have been able to increase state funding for our schools by 98 percent. This impacts our taxes. This is only one of many achievements obtained by Len and Dave. Both are not afraid to extend their hand to the other side of the aisle, and therein lies their success. Their voting on issues is done with their con-

stituents in mind and not by party vote alone. Ellie Pedalino North Haven

Generous To the editor: There is no more generous person with his time and money than state Sen. Len Fasano. I met him at different functions — he has always been interested and genuinely caring about seniors’ problems. He tries to help in any way possible to solve our problems. Never in a hurry, he listens to our concerns and tries to help wherever possible. I enjoy watching informative TV programs he does with Dave Yaccarino. I can see that they help each other get things done for us. Please vote Len Fasano back to Hartford. We need him there to continue his important work. Richard and Lorraine Guglielmo, North Haven

Great fit To the editor: Len Fasano is a great fit for the 34th District. His accomplishments are numerous, encompassing many facets of our life, whether trying to rein in out-of-control spending and taxes in the state budget, or assisting with the bipartisan jobs bill’s language. As minority leader of Sen-

ate Republicans, he seeks agreement and compromise with colleagues across the aisle, while holding them accountable for partisan votes and actions that impact us all adversely. One of his passions to reduce educational mandates, eliminating the concept of ‘teaching for the test’ and instead giving our teachers resources needed to teach our children well. James Buck North Haven

Set record straight To the editor: I recently read a Letter to the Editor in which a gentleman erroneously complained that Senator Len Fasano never did anything for the disabled. I want to set the record straight. It might be of interest to the letter-writer that Fasano, along with Representative Dave Yaccarino, worked with First Selectman Mike Freda to obtain the ADA grant for town hall. This was the largest ADA grant in Connecticut. It will give handicapped access to the third floor of town hall. This project is currently under construction. I hope this will prove that Sen. Fasano works for all of the people. Donna M. Spose North Haven See Letters, next page

Friday, November 2, 2012 — The North Haven Citizen


Middleclass and jobs By Chris Murphy In Connecticut and across the country, middle class American families want the same things. Parents want to buy a home and send their children to college, seniors want to know Murphy that their retirement savings are secure, and young people want an opportunity to reach their goals. For generations, we’ve called these things the American dream, and I’m running to be Connecticut’s next U.S. Senator to fight for them. I know the American dream because my family lived it. My mother grew up in public housing, but she worked hard, played by the rules, and her community gave her the support she needed to succeed. She didn’t get handouts; she worked hard to become a teacher and raise a family of her own. As your next Senator, I will fight for the middle class, protect our seniors’ benefits, and make the important investments we need to build a strong future for our children.

To the editor: In his 14 years as our state Representative, Steve Fontana was consistent in getting effective legislation for North Haven. His healthcare accomplishments were outstanding — improving health insurance coverage and protection for consumers. As chairman of the Energy and Technology committee, he helped pass legislation financing small business energy improvements and promoting renewable energy jobs. With his legislative process knowledge and ability to work cooperatively, Steve got state funding for numerous local projects that have improved many lives. He’s always available to listen to community concerns. We would be fortunate to

In Congress, I’ve made protecting middle class jobs my top priority. When budget cuts threatened Connecticut’s submarine base and companies like Electric Boat, I fought to protect the base and local defense manufacturers that support thousands of families. I also founded the “Buy American” caucus, bringing Republicans and Democrats together to ensure that when the government spends American tax dollars, it’s supporting companies and middle class jobs here at home. Fighting for the middle class also requires that we have a tax system in place that asks everyone to pay their fair share. I support cutting taxes for the middle class, but as our economy continues to grow, it’s not fair to give millionaires and billionaires multi-million dollar tax cuts year after year. There is also work to be done to simplify our tax code, because a maze of confusing deductions and loopholes puts families and businesses who can’t afford high-priced accountants at a disadvantage. Connecticut seniors that worked hard to reach the middle class and See Murphy, page 22

have this dedicated public servant as our state senator. Marilyn Karliin North Haven

Bipartisan To the editor: We have been extremely fortunate to have Len Fasano representing us in the Connecticut State Senate these last nine years. He is a respected bipartisan leader and has been very successful in securing funding for our district to the tune of over $19-plus million. Len is a respected leader and tireless advocate for our communities. His working relationship with Mike Freda and Dave Yaccarino is bringing economic growth and jobs to North Haven. We need a collaborative independent thinker like Len Fasano in Hartford fighting for us. Please vote for Len on Nov. 6. Caren Genovese North Haven

We can fix our economy By Linda McMahon When I announced my candidacy for the U.S. Senate, I said the economy is getting worse and Connecticut needs new leadership with a real plan to create jobs. A year has passed, so let’s McMahon take inventory. The number of people without work has risen to over 170,000; household incomes continue to fall, dropping nationally by nearly $4000 since 2008; gas prices in Connecticut are back over $4, and economic growth has collapsed to 1.3 percent, placing us in the recession red zone. Meanwhile, taxes, spending and debt are shooting up, and career politicians remain helpless and hopeless. Our problems are huge and people are very concerned, even frightened, about our future. However, as big as these challenges may be, they are not as big as the talent and potential of the American people propelled by sound policies. The key to restoring prosperity must begin with restoring confidence within our small businesses, whose industry and in-

genuity built America, and who remain our most powerful job creators. Today’s small business leaders are deeply pessimistic. Their voices go unheeded in Washington and they struggle under mounting tax and regulatory burdens. This is why my jobs plan is vital. It was developed in consultation with Connecticut’s small business leaders, with the goal of reviving confidence to expand and create more employment. We offer six, common-sense solutions. First, pass a middle class tax cut that will increase take-home pay by up to $500 a month for families. My plan lowers the 25 percent tax rate to 15 percent. This is an essential firststep as individuals and families see their budgets under siege, and face price increases on every front. Second, level the playing field for job creators by lowering the punitive corporate tax rate - highest in the world - from 35 percent to 25 percent. In return, I would do away with corporate loopholes. We need a simpler, fairer tax system that strengthens our ability to compete and create and keep more jobs in America.

An Ounce of Prevention

Not a tea pot, but a ‘neti’ pot By V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH People with allergies and chronic sinus trouble suffer with stuffed nasal passages, especially at times when pollen counts are high. Some try over-the-counter pills and nasal sprays. Others use prescription sprays. Over the last few years, the rise of the “neti” pot has become a popular non-drug intervention for helping those clogged sinuses from allergies, colds and the flu. The neti pot uses a saline-based (salt) solution to bath the nasal passages. This soothes as well as unclogs the nose. Bathing the nasal passages with a saline

solution would seem like a safe enough action to take. Yet there have been some deaths associated with this practice. Careful use of the neti pot can bring safe, effective relief.

Endurance of the point rule By Bryant Carpenter Special to The Citizen

Long debated, long argued, the CIAC’s 50-point rule has been part of Connecticut’s football fabric since 2006. As it comes back through the spin cycle here in 2012, a reminder is served that as unfashionable as it may be it’s not likely to be mothballed any time soon. Last Saturday, Norwich Free Academy beat Stamford 51-0. On Monday, NFA announced head coach Jemal Davis would serve a self-imposed one-game suspension for this week’s game against Bacon Academy. That’s the simple letter of the rule. Win by more than 50 and the head coach sits the next game. But the letter of the rule also allows for appeal, and the spirit of the rule opens

the door of subjectivity even wider: Did the coach do all he could to manage the score? What’s the opinion of the losing coach? Consider that just one week before NFA-Stamford, Barlow-Redding beat Immaculate-Danbury 56-0. The CIAC didn’t suspend Barlow coach Rob Tynan nor was it expected to after Immaculate coach Tom Taylor made it clear he believed Tynan handled the situation responsibly. In stark contrast, Stamford coach Bryan Hocter, who had declined an offer to put the game on running time earlier in the fourth quarter, made his displeasure clear. “I thought it was a little classless on his part to do that,” Hocter told the New London Day after an early fourth-quarter TD scored by

NFA’s starting running back and then a blocked punt with 3:25 to go turned a 42-0 NFA romp into the 51-0 rulebreaker. “You can’t embarrass a team. I thought (Davis) was trying to embarrass us.” Much is in the eye of the beholder on the other sideline. And what of the CIAC? It’s not clear if Davis would have been suspended by the state’s governing body of high school sports. NFA made a pre-emptive move and the CIAC merely issued a terse statement saying it accepted the decision and no other action would be taken. The only other coach to net a 50-point suspension, East Hartford’s Dan Lawrence in 2006, got rung up largely because his school didn’t appeal. In all, eight teams have beaten an opponent by more than 50 points since the rule

senior running back and tricaptain Jalon White with 2:52 before halftime and Sam Biller kicked point-after to tie the score at 7-7. In the second half, it was all Daniel Hand. The Tigers scored a thirdquarter touchdown on a 9yard run by Bilcheck. Phan’s kick that followed made it 147. Phan added a 32-yard field See Football, next page

was adopted. About 700 high school football games are played in Connecticut during a typical 10-game regular season, so the 50-point era is nearly at the 5,000-game mark. That’s a pretty good rate of non-return, as it were, which is exactly why the CIAC Football Committee has stuck with the rule. It apparently is working. “We discuss it literally every time we meet and the general consensus has been, if you look at the numbers, if you compare the number of games that were decided by extremely lopsided scores prior to the conception of the rule and since, it’s down a very large amount,” said Hand-Madison coach Steve Filippone, who sits on the board. “It’s significant, and I think what it did was remind coaches about what proper

etiquette, so to speak, is toward an opponent.” Filippone added: “As coaches, our feeling has been, ‘OK, we’ve kind of learned our lessons; we needed it, we had a couple guys who were causing problems with lopsided scores, now we’re in a position where we don’t personally need it.’ But for the administrators and some of the other guys who are on the committee, they’re saying, ‘Wait a minute, this isn’t a failed experiment; this has gotten people to do the right thing.’” By and large, that’s true. Games have gone on running time. Winning coaches have pulled starters before the fourth quarter, or at least pulled skill players, leaving first-string linemen in to See Endurance, next page

goal on the fourth quarter to make it 17-7, and then Bilcheck connected with Weston Staples for a 25-yard pass for a third touchdown, bringing the Hand lead to 24-7. White paced North Haven’s offense with 168 yards on 33 carries and Ethan Suraci earned 93 difficult yards on 11 carries up the middle. On defense, Junior

Patrick Mikos led the squad with 12 tackles while White and Junior Mike Halloran each had an interception. With the loss, the Indians overall record dropped to 4-3. A birth in the Class L State playoffs is still not out of reach, but North Haven must win their last three games and get some help to get in.

Endurance Continued from page 18 protect the younger guys. At Meriden’s Platt High School, with struggling Rockville and Weaver on the schedule, head coach Jason Bruenn has been acutely aware of the 50-point ceiling. Up 48-0 at half last year on Rockville, Bruenn pulled his starters at halftime. (They won 48-8.) He did the same this year against Weaver when Justin Potts returned the opening kickoff of the second half to put the Panthers up 47-0. (They won 47-6.) Late in that Weaver game, by the way, backup running back Tyzhan Leatherwood deliberately went out of bounds on a long run. Leatherwood had learned his 50-point lesson. Two weeks earlier, in Rockville, he returned a fumble 99 yards as time expired and as his coaches shouted for him to fall down. The touchdown made the final score Platt 500, one point shy of a violation. That quirk aside, Bruenn has successfully managed scores against overmatched opponents. Would he have done the same if a rule wasn’t hanging over his head? “I believe I would have done the same thing. I believe I’m an ethical coach,” he said. “Here’s what the 50point rule does: It tells you when to pull back. You beat someone by 50 or 60, does it really make a difference? You should have respect for the coaches you’re playing against.” But what do you do when the opposing coach doesn’t reciprocate? One knock of the 50-point rule is the winning coach often faces a Catch-22. He’s up big, pulls his starters, perhaps even

tells his reserves not to score, but the losing coach keeps his first-stringers in and keeps going full-throttle. Sure, you could argue that the losing starters, if losing that badly, probably can’t compete with the winning team’s JV. But you could also argue that the first-stringer probably is upper-class and the reserve under-class, and that the difference in age and size can be a recipe for injury. And what do you do when a losing coach declines running time, as Hocter did? Wouldn’t that undermine all grounds of complaint? These issues have been debated since the rule was adopted. Here’s a new wrinkle to add to the 50-point fire: Back in Week 4, Meriden’s Maloney High School beat Bulkeley 50-14. Bulkeley scored the game’s last TD with 3:10 to go. On the ensuing kickoff, Maloney coach Bob Zito sent out his regular return team by and large because it’s the only one he has. Moreover, he told his players to simply fall on the ball. On the other sideline, firstyear Bulkeley coach Pablo Ortiz saw it as Zito keeping in his starters. Irate, he kicked off, then had his defense take a knee 15 yards off the line of scrimmage. It got weirder. Maloney, looking to run out the clock, took a knee. The play and clock were blown dead. So Zito told his quarterback to merely stand still on the next snap - a sort of four-corners basketball approach. That play, too, was blown dead and the clock stopped. Asking the referee for an explanation, Zito was told, “You’re not going to make a mockery out of this game.” The Bulkeley defense, meanwhile, was still kneeling 15 yards downfield. So on the third down Zito had his

quarterback run along the line of scrimmage, sideline to sideline. That play, too, was blown dead. Maloney punted, the Bulldogs got the ball back and did their best to punch in another touchdown. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Zito, who is in his 37th season of coaching. “I’ve seen teams take a knee and the other team not get on the ball, but for the other team to line up that far downfield, that’s a new one.” The bizarre sequence tears at the integrity of the sport, which 50-point critics have long said is the fundamental problem with the rule. How do you tell players not to try, to fall down, to not compete? It flies in the face of everything you teach them. “I know that there are a lot of coaches who would like to see it gone, for obvious reasons,” said Zito. “The reason behind it: He’s not coaching anymore. I’ve never seen a coach deliberately try to embarrass another team and I’ve coached in a lot of games.” One coach who will attest to the prevailing sportsmanship of most coaches is Rob Marone. In his first year at Lyman Hall, where he inherited a very young team, Marone’s club has seen more than one game that was a blowout by halftime - Notre Dame 49-0, Guilford 56-0, Foran 37-0, Shelton 42-0. Not one of those games went afoul of the 50-point rule. Lyman Hall’s opponents

Third, eliminate jobkilling regulations and red tape. Small business manufacturers pay an astounding $28,000 per employee just to comply with regulations. I support reform of DoddFrank, repeal of the Affordable Care Act - which small businesses strongly condemn - and enabling Congress to bar regulations that destroy jobs. Fourth, stop out-of-control spending, borrowing and debt. I would start with a 1 percent real reduction each year, just one penny from each dollar. There is no justification for continuing to protect bureaucracy riddled with waste from the same scrutiny and downsizing every family and business is undertaking with painful consequences. Fifth, educate and equip the unemployed with the training and skills necessary for jobs available. Current federal programs overlap and fail to properly train people for existing opportunities. We would connect job creators with the unemployed through public-private partnerships. It’s time to cut the bureaucracy and let states empower job creators to design training that

will ensure more unemployed are job-ready. Finally, produce more American energy. Given our vulnerability in the Middle East, this is a no-brainer. Moreover, we have tremendous resources that can be developed with responsible safeguards to protect the environment. One example is the Keystone Pipeline that could increase supply and create thousands of goodpaying jobs. If we build it they will come. Six comprehensive proposals that, together, can stop this decline, revive confidence and unleash the potential of small businesses to innovate and create new jobs. To say that we are at a crossroads is an understatement. This election will determine whether America remains on a course that will take us over an economic cliff, or whether an America of opportunity and prosperity is restored. I believe I have the kind of real world experience, common sense and determination to help lead our country’s comeback as the first female U.S. Senator from Connecticut. Linda McMahon is the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate from Connecticut. This op-ed originally published in the Record-Journal, Meriden.

I’ve worked every day to bring good paying jobs to our state, protect middle class families, and make sure that our kids get a shot at the American dream. Connecticut’s working families deserve a Senator that will fight for them, and as a product of the middle class - I’ll do just that. Chris Murphy is the Democratic candidate to represent Connecticut in the U.S. Senate. This op-ed originally published in the Record-Journal, Meriden.

Endurance Continued from page 19 substituted liberally and went with conservative offenses. “We haven’t been in any situation this year where anyone was throwing the ball on us when they were up by 40 points or putting in their starters in the fourth quarter,” Marone said “The majority of the guys out there would do the right thing whether the rule was in existence or not. I believe that.

And I believe every coach we faced this year has handled the situation the right way. It hasn’t been easy for us, but it hasn’t been easy for our opponents. I think everyone has handled it with a lot of class.” One can argue class can never be legislated. One could also argue that, with the 50point rule , there’s no excuse to ever forget it. The debate, and rule, lives on. Bryant Carpenter writes for the Record-Journal, Meriden.
