The words literally jumped off the page Oct. 29 at the North Haven Memorial Lib ra ry A lte re d B o o ks Contest. To create altered books for the contest, entrants transformed books into works of art in a variety of ways, in most cases cutting parts of pages out and adding paper,

three criteria: craftsmanship, difficulty, and creativity. The contest began three years ago when adult services Librarian Nancy Haag heard about “another library doing an altered book contest and she thought it would be a good idea,” said Librarian Sharon Alpert. Altered Books gained pop-

Some contestants, Haag explained, “are members of the altered book club that was created after the first contest… Others heard about it because we advertise all over. We have a display in the library, we sent it out to the papers, and put notices up in shops all over the area that sell art supplies.” Haag said all contest entrants chose their own books. “We don’t ask them where they got them from,” she said. “We have unwanted books that people donated to the library that entrants can use, but they don’t have to use those books... we just ask entrants not to use library books.” The library also owns a number of books on how to do See Creativity / Page 14

New members welcome anytime By Erin K. Butler Special to The Citizen

A new group has been established to offer support for the special challenges that veterans face. Veterans for Veterans CT meets twice a month at the Mount Carmel Christian Church in North Haven and is open to new members looking for a community with a unique understanding of life as a veteran. “These are veterans who don’t need medication or a psychologist, they just need to talk and other veterans are the best ones for them to talk too,” said Senior Pastor, Rev. Don Rivers at Mount Carmel Christian Church. Rivers said the group started out of a request from veterans in his par-

ish, who found there was a need. While the group meets at the church, it is not religious based. Rivers, who is not a veteran himself, says he is just there to “keep the group moving in a positive direction”. The group consists of veterans from all different wars, including Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. “They talk about the everyday struggles they are facing, such as when the government was shut down. They discussed what would happened when Nov. 1 came and the disability check didn’t,” Rivers said. “It helped for them to know they are not alone.” Rivers adds, with the staggering statistics of suiSee Veterans / Page 18

said. For Johnson, his bubble show “is a mix of art and science” and “a way to get kids to think differently about something that is common in their lives.” Johnson opened his show by asking the audience how many of them had interacted with bubbles that day. When only a few raised their hands, Johnson said “that’s a lot of people who haven’t washed their hands or brushed their teeth today!” Johnson continued, “there are also bubbles inside your body, but what we’re talking about tonight is soap bubbles, which are made of water and glycerin.” Johnson performed several tricks with bubbles and filled his presentation with jokes that kept the kids laugh-

Richelle Villabona and Hien Ngo are two high school seniors who have been volunteering for the Halloween Party “since we were freshmen,” Villabona said. This year they staffed the face painting tables. “Our teacher got us into it,” Ngo said. Villabona said face painting is not too difficult, but that “being in art class” helped. Keith Johnson, known as The Bubble Man, performed for the Halloween show. Johnson has been doing programs since 1986 and started working with bubbles twelve years ago. “I have other programs about math and reading, but somehow I became a bubble expert,” Johnson

The rec center’s Halloween parade, seen here Oct. 31, is known as the “Creepy Creature Crawl.” | (Charles Kreutzkamp\


Every year, the North Haven Recreational Center sponsors a Halloween party for elementary school children. This year, the party was attended by The Cat in the Hat, a mermaid, multiple Ninja Turtles, several princesses, Peter Pan, witches, a nd severa l versions of Iron Man. Volunteers at the event were dressed in sports jerseys. The recreation department sponsored the event, which was also supported by voluntary donations given in exchange for pictures with The Great Pumpkin. Over 150 people attended, including children. Eileen Pettit has been helping the Rec Center put on the Halloween party for about 25 years. “We always try to put together a nice family event,” Pettit said, “we provide a safe alternative to Trick-orTreating for parents with very young children… The party is a service the rec department provides the community free of charge. The kids get a chance to interact in a safe environment, and after the Halloween show, every kid gets a bag of candy to take home.” T he Ha l loween pa r t y also featured two Mystery Tables, one where participants guessed the weight of a The North Haven pumpkin, and another where they guessed the number of candy corn pieces in a jar.

‘Scouting for Food’ in its 25th year Residents asked to contribute Nov. 9 By Erin Butler

The North Haven Citizen

The Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts of North Haven are doing their part to aid in the fight against hunger in their town. On Saturday, Nov. 9, more than a hundred Scouts from North Haven will collect non-perishable food items, as part of the 25th annual “Scouting for Food” program, which collects food for the needy. “Last year 3,060 pounds of food was collected during the food drive with 125 Boy Scouts and leaders from six different units helping out,” said Boy Scout Leader, Jim Racca. “We would love to increase our collections numbers this year.” During the week of Nov. 2, 5,500 food donation bags were distributed in North Haven to individual households. These bags will be

collected on Saturday, Nov. 9, between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. outside the homes. For residents who did not get a bag, or lost their bag, you can still leave non-perishable food in any bag on your porch or doorstep to be picked up or you can bring it to the North Haven Congregational Church on Nov. 9 between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. “The scouts have fun with this, of course depending on their age they may not fully understand the importance of what they are doing, but they all work hard and do a really good job,” Racca said. The food collected by the Boy Scouts will go to benefit the food pantry at the

North Haven Congregational Church. “Dealing with an issue, like hunger, seems overwhelming to do by yourself, but when you have the support of a troop, it has a bigger impact,” said Rev. Scott Morrow, pastor of the North Haven Congregational Church. “It’s exciting what these scouts are able to do when they work together.” Racca says performing community service and making a positive impact in the community is all part of the scouting experience, no matter what the age. “In scouts, we really stress giving back to the community,” Racca said. “Each scout

must complete a certain level of community service as part of moving up in the ranks.” The scouting program begins with Cub Scouts at 6 years old and continues up to the level of a Boy Scout, that can go up to 17-years-old. The food pantry provides services all year long. If you are not able to donate during the Scouting for Food program, food donations are also accepted weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the North Haven Congregational Church, 28 Church Street.

news first… it costs a lot of money in this state for families to afford childcare.” He presented the results of a survey, which found that “the cost of child care in the United States increased twice as fast as the median income of families with children” in the past 10 years. In Connecticut, the survey found that the average annual cost of center-based childcare is $12,220 and the average cost of home-based childcare is $10,120. This cost is 17 percent of the median household income in Connecticut. “That is one out of every five dollars going to childcare,” Murphy said. Childcare services in Connecticut are also among the most expensive in the country. “It simply costs more to be able to provide good quality childcare,” Murphy explained. Cost of living may also be a factor: According to ACCRA, Connecticut’s cost of living in the second quarter of 2013 was behind only New York,

Walt Spader stated before the election that the Board of Education was the most important race to watch this year, with five seats open. Spader said that he had hoped the Democrats might succeed in keeping incumbent Carole Franceschet on the board, but that he was “realistic” that it was “tough without having the money that Freda was able to raise in an unopposed position.” Both Wright and Spader noted that independent voters in North Haven outnumber Republicans and Democrats. “North Haven has a sophisticated electorate,” Spader said, “they tend to pay close attention to the issues.” Wright said that “I think independent voters like the way this town is being run.” Wright was confident that the Republican candidates would be very successful this year. “If you like the way Michael Freda is running the town, you are going to want him to have his team,” she said. Spader agreed that the election indicated “voters like the status quo.” Independent voter Anthony Santagata said he supported Freda because, “Michael has had an extraordinary impact on this town…

I had a traffic problem on my street and Michael came down in person and said, ‘we’re going to take care of this’… I’d like to see him run for governor of Connecticut someday.” The Registrars of Voters did not report any problems and stated that 4,903 people voted out of 15,341 potential voters (31.96 percent). DTC Chair Spader stated that he was “disappointed… [that] the majority of the town isn’t participating.” He said, “Two years ago we had 41.68 percent... this level of complacency could be problematic.” Although Spader said that he believes more voters would not have changed the results of the election, he said “you can never have too much democracy.” Spader also emphasized that although he would like to see more local engagement in politics, he thinks the elected officials are “quality, qualified, and quantitatively great people.” Spader said he expects that newly elected Democratic Selectman Sally Buemi will perform well in a “watchdog role” as the representative of the minority party. “She is well prepared and capable,” Spader said. First Selectman Michael Freda told The Citizen his plans for his third term in office. “There is so much more that I would like to accom-

plish,” Freda said. His goals include, “continuing to support education. We have a middle school project next year that we’re going to be addressing, as well as growing the economic development in the town [including]

the Pratt & Whitney site, … the medical epicenter on State and Devine, trying to help find a tenant for the Marlin Building, …delivering a high quality level of services at a reasonable tax rate, …[and] trying to create

altered books. “Some people take them out, but a lot of people are just naturally talented,” Haag said. Alpert submitted a piece entitled “Plot Twist” that resembled a paper firework exploding out of a book. “It’s like a thanksgiving centerpiece,” one attendee said. “Wouldn’t it look great on the kitchen table with some candles?” Alpert laughed and said, “That’s the thing about altered books, they cannot be near an open flame.” Other submissions included a book shaped into a butterfly, a book with parts of pages removed to carve the shape of the Taj Mahal, and a copy of Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea with an octopus on the front whose tentacles burst through the book’s cover and into the third dimension. Amelia Lewis, who submit-

ted to the teen division, took the book Opportunities in Animal and Pet Care Careers and turned it into a kind of diorama using a plastic pet habitat. Cut out pages in the shapes of fish hung from the lid of the habitat and swam in front of the pages, which Lewis had colored blue. Lewis said, “I participated this year because I enjoyed it last year, and I thought a fish tank would be cool.” “One of our artists specializes in fiber,” Alpert said. “I’m more mixed media...We have a lot of talented people and there are a lot of ways to approach it.” The library holds the Altered Books contest every year and there is no cost to attend. The North Haven Memorial Library Altered Book Club meets on Thursday evenings twice a month. (For more photos from the event, visit The North Haven Citizen’s Facebook Page.)

The Giant offers ideal fall frolic By Amy Flory

Special to The Citizen

I love fall. I love the colors, I love the smells, and I love that I can wear my favorite boots again. I love that I can be outside without freezing or sweating, and fall is the ideal time to hike the trails at Sleeping Giant State Park. Our family has taken advantage of the tower path, a mile and a half climb that boast a nice wide trail, a lovely view, and a good incline for kids and adults alike, a few times this season. We leash up our black lab, pack some water and snacks, and head for the h ills , s o m e t i m e s wi t h friends, sometimes just the five of us. Sleeping Giant, as all locals know, is named for its shape, because the hills resemble a giant lying down, asleep. Right around where the giant’s left hip would be is a stone tower that offers an amazing panoramic view of New Haven County and Long Island Sound, and is a great place for kids to pretend they are knights and princesses. Since it takes us over an hour to get to the top, due to the vast amount

ming them, into my overflowing pockets. When we arrive home she will lovingly wash them, and carry them around for days in a plastic zippered bag, finally forgetting about them so I can return them to the wild. We stop to chat with other dog owners, allowing our pets to say hello by sniffing each other, which never stops being funny to our children. The main trail is family-friendly, and is easily the most populated trail in the park. For a more isolated or difficult trail, see the trail maps and entrances at the Sleeping Giant Parks Association website (SGPA. org). There are tired legs, and always some tears from my preschooler who would forever be carried or pushed in stroller if we allowed it, but it is always fun, and it feels great to be outside, enjoyAubrey Mayer, 8, on a recent visit to Sleeping Giant State ing the fall weather with my Park. | (Submitted photo) family and our friends.

cide of veterans reported at 22 suicides a day, he hopes “if this group can prevent just one”, it will have made a difference and been a catalyst for hope. In the future, he would like to offer a mentorship program for those getting back in the workforce, which would teach skills such as balancing checkbooks and interviewing. Eventually, he would like to create halfway house for veterans facing homelessness. “Some of them don’t assimilate back into society very well after being told what to do every minute of their day. They have had all these decisions made for them and now they are lost,” Rivers said. In the spring, Rivers would like to expand the meetings to include activities the members enjoy, but right now, he says about letting the veterans know the group is here to help. “We just want to reach out and hold onto a brother or sister and give them a sense of value and hope again.” Veterans for Veterans CT meet on the second and fourth Saturday of each month, at 8 a.m. at Mount Carmel Christian Church, 5100 Ridge Road.

Drama production

of The Hanging Hills,” back in the middle of August. I bought a knock-off, moleskine-like notebook from Walmart: black leather cover, cream-colored pages with narrow rule lines. In that book, I wrote down everything that could have worked in a novel. Over the last few weeks, I worked the bits of information into something of a p l o t . The resulting outline is a page and a half long. I also have a few character sketches that I created. These are a few scraps of paper compared to how long I want my story to eventually run. To be honest, it’s intim-

idating. Usually, I have pages and pages of notes for one news story that gets printed in the paper. But non-fiction and fiction writing are two different things, I’ve come to learn. In news writing, you try to make your writing reflect the real world. Journalists are like map-makers, giving directions to one place or the other. Novelists, on the other hand, are forming a whole world of their own. In the words of Ariadne f ro m t h e 2 0 1 0 m ov i e “Inception,” “It’s just... pure creation.” Do you have any questions about the creative process? Perhaps you, too, are trying to write a novel this month. I’d love to talk. Email me at

Reading t h ro u g h Na No Wr i Mo’s website — nanowrimo. org — there are two general strategies writers take during November: planning and pantsing. The planners have reams of notes. They may create spreadsheets of scenes in their novels. They know exactly what comes next in their story and why. The pantsers go by the seat of their pants, making their stories up as they go through the month. When I started this project, I would have considered myself a planner. Today, I’m not so sure.

ers offer them, amount to a tax break on families who utilize them. Currently, the benefit of these accounts has eroded as both costs and inflation has increased. This bill also would index the cap on these accounts, ensuring they remain useful to employers who offer them and employees who use them. Murphy defended the bill from one potential criticism, stating that “no one is getting rich off of providing quality child care.” According to Joel Stonington, of Sageworks, daycare net profit margins in the U.S. average 10.43 percent. M u r p hy r e f e r e n c e d Dower, who lives above Sunny Side Up, as an example of child care providers who “do this because it’s a passion” and not because it is lucrative. If enacted, this bill will only benefit those who have access to the flex spending

accounts of which Murphy said, “84 percent of big companies offer.” This could benefit “thousands of Connecticut families,” according to Murphy. He also stated his belief that if the caps on these accounts increase, more employers will consider offering them. Murphy said that critics of the bill might object to bill’s “counter-cultural” expansion of tax rules because “the current trend is toward

simplifying the tax code.” Murphy said that “this issue has become personal to me…with a five-year-old and a one-year-old, (my wife and I) certainly know how expensive it can be to afford childcare… in one of the most expensive housing states in the nation.” Last year, when then Rep. Murphy first introduced The Childcare Flex Spending Act, it died in committee.

hard-hitting, low-scoring affairs. This night would prove to be no different, as the game was highlighted by defense, big hits, fumbles and interceptions. In the end, North Haven would prevail, 14-0, to improve to 7-1. Hillhouse quickly came upon fourth down on the game’s opening drive, and an exchange of three punts began, which ultimately provided North Haven with possession of the ball. A short drive culminated with quarterback Mike Halloran busting through the middle for a one-yard touchdown. Sabrina Fronte kicked the extra point to give the Indians a 7-0 lead. North Haven’s ground attack, which was averaging 369 yards per game, was held to 177 yards in this one. Halloran completed 3 of 10 passes for a modest 63 yards, so the North Haven defense

The junior was sacked four times, twice by Zach Kasternhuber, who has a team-high eight sacks. Maddox fumbled once, and threw three interceptions.

In the fourth quarter, the Indians got in close for an attempted field goal, but long range kicker Fred Sanchez could not connect from 32 yards. A quick stop of the See Indians / Page 25

LEGAL NOTICE TOWN OF NORTH HAVEN SUMMARY OF REVISIONS TO FLOOD DAMAGE PREVENTION ORDINANCE This information/documentation is prepared for the benefit of the public, solely for purposes of information, summarization and explanation. This document does not represent the intent of the legislative body of the Town Of North Haven for any purpose. The Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance (Section 121-5) definition of SUBSTANTIAL DAMAGE has been revised as follows: “Substantial Damage” now also means flood-related damages sustained by a structure on two separate occasions during a 10-year period for which the cost of repairs at the time of each such flood event, on the average, equals or exceeds 25 percent of the market value of the structure before the damage occurred. The definition of SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENT has also been revised as follows: “Substantial Improvement” now also means any combination of repairs, reconstructions, alterations or improvements to a structure, taking place over a ten year period in which the cumulative cost equals or exceeds fifty percent (50%) of the market value of the structure before the start of construction of the improvement. This term includes structures that have incurred substantial damage, regardless of the actual repair work performed. The term does not, however, include any project for improvement of a structure required to correct existing violations of state or local health, sanitary, or safety code specifications which have been identified by the local code enforcement official and which are the minimum necessary to assure safe living conditions. Section 121-7 has been revised to incorporate the updated Flood Insurance Rate Maps revised on July 8, 2013. Section 121-14 B.(1)(a) has been amended to add the following language, as follows: “For a structure in an A or AE Zone, the top of the lowest floor, including the basement (121-16C(1)(a).” The above revisions were proposed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection and approved at a special Town Meeting held on June 26, 2013. Copies of the entire Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance are available at the Town of North Haven’s Town Clerk‘s Office for review. Lost and Found
