Low turnout still a concern, but


Officials pleased by passage of budget at second referendum By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen By a narrow margin – a mere 365 votes – North Haven’s 2010-11, $83.1 million budget passed at town’s second referendum on June 15 – 2,147 yes to 1,782 against. Of town’s 15,360 eligible voters, 3,929, or 25.58 percent, turned out, up from the 21 percent who rejected an $85 million budget two-to-one at the first referendum on May 18. Representing an increase of 2.7 mills, the budget brings a new tax rate of 26.18 mills. Ridge Road residents carried the budget, approving it by a tally of 645 to 322. Clin-

tonville’s district also supported it, 509 to 430, as did Green Acres, 213 to 210. Several districts opposed the budget. Absentees voted no, 47 to 40. Additionally, the Recreation Center pushed for a third referendum, 341 to 331, as did Montowese, 432 to 409. First Selectman Michael Freda was cognizant of the meaning behind the budget referendum’s tight outcome. “I’m happy it passed,” he said, “but I’ve also recognized that because it passed by such a close margin, it indicates to me that there are still a large number of residents concerned with the

No criminal charges in building department probe By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

On June 9, at 9 a.m., students at Clintonville School helped inflate a 105,000 cubic foot hot air balloon to celebrate their “Up With Reading” challenge. The students needed to read 15,000 books to send their principal, Lauretta Dowling, up in the balloon. After a year long theme of ballooning which was incorporated into all subject areas, particularly in science, with the study of weather, flight, gravity, etc., the children got a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the sight and hear the sounds of a real hot air balloon. This program was generously funded by the North Haven Education Foundation. See more photos on page 24.

Discovering no illegal activities, the state’s attorney office has ceased its investigation into North Haven’s building department. “The town of North Haven had asked us to look into whether their building official was in compliance with town policy, appropriate laws and regulations, as well as whether he was in violation of state statutes,” said New Haven State’s Attorney Michael Dearington last week. “Based on information provided by North Haven, as well as interviews with members of the office, we concluded that there is no evi-

dence of criminal wrongdoing. Accordingly, our investigation has been closed.” Potential building department concerns first arose in December 2009 when, during the public comment portion of a Board of Selectmen’s meeting, several residents aired anxieties, including that a state investigation had commenced the month before. Since then, multiple properties with possible problems have been identified throughout town, totaling approximately $50,000 in wrongly charged permit fees. North Haven building official Dave Maiden was placed on paid administrative leave

Drug purchase plan could help North Haven By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

prescription drugs.” Donovan said that despite Connecticut’s monetary woes, Hartford still wanted to promote municipal savings during recessionary times. “Up at the Capital we had a tough budget year, but one thing we focused on was not hurting towns,” he said. “We concentrated on what Rep. Fontana worked on, which

was the idea of using the state’s purchasing power for prescriptions and offer that to the cities and towns.”

“Hopefully your town will be able to take advantage of

During a May 14 press conference at North Haven Town Hall, politicians discussed new state legislation which allows municipalities to participate in a state-wide prescription drug purchasing plan. Signed by Gov. M. Jodi Rell last week, the law permits towns to buy medication through the state at lower costs beginning July 1. Employing over 50,000 workers, Connecticut can negotiate lower drug prices than towns and cities with smaller pools of employees. Second selectman and State Rep. Steve Fontana (DNorth Haven), First Selectman Michael Freda and

House Speaker Christopher G. Donovan (D-Meriden) convened Monday to review the plan’s local impact. “A town like North Haven, we believe, can save in excess of $200,000 annually,” Fontana said. “When we’re looking to balance tight budgets, this is a way to provide towns with solutions, a way that we at the state level can help municipalities.” “We came up with an idea that basically says you can buy your prescription drugs within your existing plan from the state at the state’s discounted rate,” Fontana added. “Prescription drugs are a very large and increasing share of every premium dollar. In fact, maybe as much as 25 to 30 percent of every premium dollar goes to

At the June 10 Board of Education meeting, a new school principal was approved, a departing superintendent was thanked and donated defibrillators were welcomed. Public comment touched on baseball, public comment policy and a board member’s leaving. Assistant Superintendent Patricia Brozek announced Mary Federico, currently an upper school housemaster in Bethany, as Montowese Elementary School’s new principal. “We really think that Mary is going to be the perfect fit,� Brozek said. The position had been posted in the district and advertised in The Hartford Courant and The New Haven Register, according to Brozek. Of the original 54 applicants, a review committee selected the top eight. Four candidates went through a second round of interviews. From the two finalists, Fed-

erico was recommended to the board, which voted for her official appointment. Moving on to a North Branford position at the school year’s end, Superintendent Sara-Jane Querfeld received appreciation from board members. “I think she is by far, in my opinion, the very best superintendent the North Haven schools have ever had,� said board member James Hogan. “She has done an excellent, excellent job.� A round of applause followed Hogan’s comments, after which Brozek also praised the departing administrator. “Sara Querfeld has been a remarkable asset to North Haven, as a language arts coordinator, as a principal, and as a superintendent,� she said. “From the onset, she’s had enormously positive impact on the district.� “Sara deserves the sole credit for the significant improvement to CMT and CAPT scores,� Brozek continued. “Sara’s vision for curriculum and curriculum

Eyewitnesses to history: The best view is the first-person view By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

North Haven High School history teacher Federico Fiondella enjoys finishing a year of textbook teaching tangibly – with the real thing. For three consecutive years, Fiondella has produced “An Eyewitness to History,” an all-day speaker series incorporating local individuals who have experienced firsthand subjects studied by NHHS students. World War II, Vietnam War, Watergate, Sept. 11, and present-day Afghanistan and Iraq representatives all addressed students this year. “It’s a great way to recap all the things we learned in class with accounts from eyewitnesses,” Fiondella said, “people who actually lived through the event, as op-

posed to simply what’s written in the textbooks.” “In today’s world, it’s such a fast pace, that you may not get to sit down for dinner, sit down and learn from grandparents,” Fiondella continued. “You used to learn these stories from your grandparents. Now you eat and run, and some kids are missing out on these kinds of stories.” Fiondella estimated approximately 250 students and 25 teachers attended throughout the June 4 allday event. American Legion Post 76 commander Dan Riccio made an opening statement. Veterans Vincent Snurkowski and Domenic Falcone, along with nurse and pharmacist’s mate Third Class Edith Gillman, spoke on World War II. Veteran William Kennedy gave a

speech “The Decision to Drop the Atomic Bomb.” Discussing the Vietnam conflict were veterans Rick Leach, John Gilchrist, Don Deloge and Charles Morrissey. Former secret service agent Roy Castagnola spoke on President Richard Nixon’s last days, Sept. 11 survivor Chad Vanacore discussed his escape from the Twin Towers, while Master Sergeant Brent Heidenis and Major Daniel Murphy portrayed modern warfare. On September 10, 2001, Chad Vanacore stood atop the New York skyline with his girlfriend, looking out from Windows on the World, a restaurant on the 106 and 107th floors of the World Trade Center’s North Tower. “My girlfriend asked what would happen if the towers ever went down,” Vanacore said somberly.

At the time, Vanacore was working on a trading floor on the South Tower’s 60th floor. “It was all rows of desks,” he said. “There were no cubicles.” A day after his girlfriend’s unintended premonition, Vanacore was talking football with a co-worker in the morning. “All of a sudden a huge shockwave went through the building,” he said. “The whole trading floor goes quiet – it’s usually pretty noisy.” “What looks like confetti is coming down the side of the building,” Vanacore continued. “I was walking to the side of the building when I looked up and the first thing I noticed was that the top of the other tower was engulfed in flames. What I thought was confetti was concrete and twisted mental.” Vanacore ran back to his desk and convinced a group of coworkers they needed to leave. “We were probably some of the first people in the stairwells,” he said. “The stairwells had no windows.” Loudspeaker announce-

ments began 10 to 15 flights into Vanacore’s descent, telling South Tower denizens that it was okay to return to their floors. Vanacore and his friends had traversed 10 more stories when the second plane struck their building. “There was another shockwave that ripped through the building,” Vanacore said. “Only it’s twisting our building. People were tossed aside. All I could think is that the first tower collapsed and we’re going down and I’m going to be buried in rubble. Nobody is ever going to find me.” “The guy in front of me started to say ‘we’re all going to die’,” Vanacore continued. “I put my hand on his shoulder and said ‘we’re going to get out of here’.” Eventually, Vanacore and his companions made it outside into the plaza. “I looked into the sky and both towers were engulfed in flames,” he said. “Rescue workers were

Rotary volunteers help with Special Olympic cycling By David Marchesseault Special to The North Haven Citizen

A sometimes rainy weekend did not dampen the spirits of 2,217 athletes and their partners at the 41st anniver-

sary of the Connecticut Special Olympics. The events were held June 11-13 on the campus of Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven. North Haven resident Laurie-Jean Hannon, vice president of Games and Sports Development, has been working with Special Olympics of Connecticut for 39 years. Several years ago she was contacted by Theresa Veile, then president of the North Haven Rotary Club, offering the group’s volunteer services to help with supervision at the annual Summer Games. According to the Special Olympics website, the responsibilities held by Hannon include “planning and executing our three major competitions: Winter Games, Summer Games and Holiday

Volunteers from the North Haven Rotary provided assistance to the Connecticut Special Olympians last weekend, including helping out with the bike races. Sports Classic.” The Summer Games, which were held last weekend at SCSU, included cycling, gymnastics, tennis and developmental aquatics. Due to renovation work at the college pool, the town pool in North Haven was utilized for the swimming competition.

For six years, Veile has organized the sign-up of North Haven Rotary volunteers for the Special Olympic games. The local Rotary provides safety assistance to the numerous athletes who participate in the bike races. A huge race track was formed utilizing large red safety cones

and miles of caution tape in

Ave. Volunteers watch over riders as they pass through pedestrian pathways and assist them in exiting the track upon completion. Morning and afternoon cycling competitions included 5K, 10K, and 15K races. The athletes bring their own bicycles, which vary from slick competitive bikes to the common street variety. For individuals who may have to deal with physical handicaps, large three wheelers are used. Although individuals who want to race do not have to be experienced riders, all entrants must attend training sessions for eight weeks prior to an event. Many of the competitors on Sunday showed a fair degree of expertise. Stating that the volunteers

by town officials on May 28. Earlier in the month, private auditor firm Kostin, Ruffkess & Co. began investigating the building department on behalf of the town. Prior to Maiden’s leave and the hiring of the auditor, several residents called for First Selectman Michael Freda to take quicker action on the building department matter. “All along I have really been very careful with having a thorough process,” Freda said last week. “I have to balance the presumption of innocence with also representing the best interests of North Have. This needs to be a very careful, methodical process.” Kostin, Ruffkess & Co. is continuing to inspect whether procedural errors

occurred. “We’re trying to determine whether or not the town did lose any fees over the years going back to 2002,” Freda said. “There is no more investigation into the criminal aspect.” Freda was unsure when the audit would be completed. “It could be a lengthy process based on the scope of what we’re doing internally,” he said. The audit took the place of a state building department probe into North Haven’s building department. “I was disappointed with the process of the state building department,” Freda said. “They were too slow and cumbersome, so I engaged the auditors.” Maiden’s attorney, John Gesmonde of Gesmonde, Pietrosimone & Sgrignari of Hamden, did not return phone calls.

Fish story indicates NHMS White Team thinks ‘green’ By David Marchesseault Special to the North Haven Citizen

A seasoned teacher who’s in his first year working at the North Haven Middle School recently brought his sixth grade students on the White Team to the Salmon River in East Hampton on a rather unique field trip. This was the culmination of a class project entitled “The Restoration of the Atlantic Salmon.” Sean Laydon came to North Haven this year with over 10 years of teaching experience at the elementary school level. He stated that he loves his career move so much that, “I’d never want to go back.” The atmosphere in his classroom demonstrates his passion for teaching science, with equipment and

projects in every corner and attractive bulletin boards that help to draw the interests of his students. The fish project that the sixth grade class took on with enthusiasm this year was no simple task. It required detailed work and special care. An insulated and specially equipped aquarium in the classroom that has rather expensive temperature controls became the nesting ground for some 200 salmon eggs. The future small fry were provided through the Connecticut River Salmon Association (CRSA), which has been attempting to restore this valuable resource to the Connecticut River Basin. The children were completely successful in caring for and raising the young fish, called “alevin,” which

The unusual food pouch contains the yolk sac. Laydon said that the tiny creatures consume the entire yolk sac before they are considered “fry,” but at that point they must be released into the river or they will not survive. The trip must be carefully planned keeping

the life cycle in mind. The enthusiastic instructor smiled broadly as he proudly announced that all of the children actively participated at every stage of the restoration program “from tracking daily growth to restocking the river.” On the field trip itself, the young scientists actually performed a variety of impor-

tant experiments, which ranged from “testing the water of the river for velocity, temperature and depth, to a micro investigation of the surrounding area” where their “young friends” were to be released. The project literature, which can be found on the classroom site through the school website, states that it was not until the construction of numerous dams in New England about 200 years ago that the Atlantic salmon was restricted from spawning upstream, thus decreasing their numbers significantly over the years. The advent of the cotton and woolen mills which were located on the rivers of New England nearly spelled the death of the Atlantic salmon. Ironically, upon the demise of the mills, the salmon began to return. Water pollution was the first hurdle. For over 40 years, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services has engaged in an effort to stock the rivers with fry in hopes of regenerating the invaluable resource. Nearly 30 years ago, the CRSA took up the cause, as well. The Connecticut State Department of Environmental Protection

rushing past me – off-duty cops,” Vanacore added. “They were all running into the buildings, when all I want to do is get away from them. I thought they were the bravest people.” Vanacore walked for 20 more minutes uptown when he heard someone scream “They’re down.” He turned around and saw gray clouds and open sky where once there were towers. “I found the nearest bar and hunkered down,” he said. “You see these movies about disasters and people are always clawing over each other to get out,” Vanacore continued. “What I saw was people helping other people: everyday citizens helping the people around them.” A student asked about consequences. “Right after there was a palpable fear in Manhattan that anything could happen. If a terrorist could take down a building, what’s next?” Vanacore said. “But then there was counter-logic. We’re going to go about living

our lives, trying not to think about these things, because then the terrorists win, and we’re living in fear.” “For a year after I didn’t sleep a single night,” Vanacore added. “Now I feel like I have a better zest for life. I saw how fragile things can be, and so I try to live life to its fullest.” Students asked Vietnam War veterans whether they remained in touch with their combat companions postconflict. Christmas cards and emails were said to be commonly exchanged. One student asked about Vietnam’s environment. “It rained for three solid months,” one veteran said. Another, an aviator, was not as against the weather. “The skies were pretty clear,” he said. “Only problem was that aircraft don’t fly as well in hot, humid air.” When asked about Vietnam wildlife, veterans said they saw 12-foot anacondas and rock-throwing monkeys, and heard of other soldiers who encountered tigers. A difficulty that Vietnam veterans said they had with their service was the public reaction when they came

home; they were told not to wear their uniforms, because public opinion was negative toward the war. At hearing this, Iraq and Afghanistan veterans said how thankful they were when Vietnam’s combatants welcomed them home. In 1974, Castagnola was working for the White House, having just recently graduated from the Secret Service academy. “I was working in the executive office building, where the president had his real office,” he told the student and teacher audience. “I was there one of my first nights, watching The Six Million Dollar Man at two a.m., when a buzzer sounded and there was a pounding at the door.” “I opened the door and there, between two secret service agents, was the President of the United States,” Castagnola added. “He goes by without saying anything. He came in almost every night.” Silence, of course, was a pertinent part of Castagnola’s vocation. “I saw a lot, I heard a lot, but I didn’t say a lot,” he said. “In fact I was sworn to secrecy. To this day

there’s a lot I can’t talk about.” Watergate left Castagnola considering much. “There were 18-minute gaps on those tapes,” he said. “Obviously, they had been erased, but the question is who did it and why?” “I’ve always wondered if that’s what the president was working diligently on every night, only yards away from me,” Castagnola continued. “Only the president knows.” Despite Nixon’s ignominious exit, Castagnola reminded his listeners that the 37th president had also opened up relations with China and begun bridging the United States and Soviet Union gulf. “Unfortunately, he will go

down as the first president to resign,” Castagnola said. “He will go down for Watergate.” Heidenis brought American conflict into current-day focus, showing the audience a self-shot video portraying Iraq warfare, including American soldiers utilizing tanks and machine guns, night vision fighting, raids of stone buildings, and desert patrols. But it wasn’t all offense. Heidenis’ video also contained shots of Americans training Iraq soldiers to fend for themselves, and soldiers at work rebuilding the country’s shattered buildings.

Letters to the Editor

Son in recovery; thanks for the support

To the editor: How do we thank such a wonderful community? On the evening of April 29, our 12-year-old son Ryan (known by all as “Whitey”) suffered a skull fracture while playing his favorite sport, baseball. Additional complications included a cerebral hemorrhage. Simply stated, he was in bad shape. Immediately (literally 7 a.m. the next morning in the Pediatric ICU), friends from throughout our community came to the support of the Brennan family. Old friends, new friends, friends of friends and strangers contacted us. Whitey received hundreds of calls, emails, visits and gifts … they continue to arrive today. The Brennan family received an incredible amount of food, which during such a time of

crisis was a tremendous help. The outpouring of kindness and generosity was stunning! We continually heard the words, “We are praying for him.” We want to most genuinely thank the entire community. We have kept individual names to a minimum, because the list would be too long. Our gratitude goes to: Dr. Duncan and his surgical team at Yale New Haven Hospital; Yale New Haven Hospital’s 7th Floor Pediatric ICU and Security; Max Sinoway Little League coaches, teammates, friends and all of the WB #5 Brigade; Father Tim and our St. Therese Church family; friends, teachers and administrators at the North Haven Middle School; special thanks to Kyle Scafariello for coordinating a “Hat Day” fundraiser; Montowese and Clintonville Elementary School staff and students; North Haven High School staff and students; all of our

friends in Town Hall; Richard’s Corner Deli, JRoos and Taste Buds; Dr. Kim and Dr. Lazaroff; our immediate families and all of our friends who have sent their love, support and prayers. We live in a wonderful community. Whitey’s outlook is now bright! We celebrate his recovery with all of you. Jay and Lisa Brennan North Haven

Yaccarino needed in Hartford To the editor: Like many other residents, I was extremely disappointed to hear that Connecticut’s bond rating has been lowered. Members of our General Assembly have tried to play off this downgrade as a minor problem; however, it puts our state in a bad position for the future and is a direct and negative consequence of years of wrong-headed spending without limits.

things gotten so bad? Rather than actually make tough decisions and risk losing votes, career politicians in Hartford have continued to borrow. In times like these, Connecticut needs restraint and common sense. This is why we need a man like Dave Yaccarino as our next state representative from North Haven. He has the kind of perspective we need in the capitol. Dave has had to reshape his small business over the years and adapt to various business climates. He understands that you can only borrow for so long until you’re worse off than when you started. Analysts say that Connecticut will face a $3.37 billion shortfall in next year’s budget. That is thoroughly unacceptable. We need a new approach and new faces up in Hartford. We need somebody like Dave Yaccarino. Paul Marando North Haven

Leaves or people – which is more important? To the editor: I was very sad to find out at my son’s pre-school graduation that a valuable member of the special education department at Green Acres School had been laid off. Due to budget cuts, Kriste Gill will no longer be a speech language pathologist in

North Haven. All of you who know “Miss Kriste” and have had the privilege of her working with your child know that this is just wrong. Kriste Gill was my son’s speech therapist for the past two years that he was in the program. Without her patience, understanding, and unbelievable hard work, I seriously doubt my son would have come as far as he has. She has always gone above and beyond her role as a speech therapist to do what she believed was in the best interest of my son. I will always be grateful for her time and effort. I believe it is doing our children a great disservice to let people like Kriste become casualties to our town’s budget cuts. It’s unfortunate that some people only see the bottom line — just a number. They do not see that there are people attached to that number and lives are affected. When a town finds an employee like Kriste, they should hold onto them at all costs — find other ways and not just dispose of them like leaves on a curb. Which leads me to my next point. Everyone should be happy to know that the town will still have their bulk leaf pick-up. That’s really what matters here. Gina Judd North Haven

Friday, June 18, 2010 — The North Haven Citizen

Historical house opened to the public By Paul Colella The North Haven Citizen On a Sunday afternoon, I attended the opening of the Martha Culver House located at 282 Quinnipiac Avenue, adjacent to the Montowese Volunteer Firehouse and ball fields. After several years closed to the public, the Martha Culver House is once again ready to welcome visitors. The members of the North Haven Historical Society are excited about sharing with the public the history of the Culver family, the Brockett Collection of farm tools, and other artifacts, memorabilia, and archives in the home that tell the story of North Haven’s early history. The Martha Culver House was constructed by Ammi Culver in 1857 of North Haven brick. Martha Louisa Culver Smith was born during the Civil War in the year 1864. She was an avid reader and a collector of books. She did missionary work and traveled extensively to many countries while appreciating and learning about the various peoples and their cultures, customs, and traditions. When she was home in North Haven, Martha was involved in charitable organizations, a Friday Afternoon Book Club, and could be seen by neighbors working in her garden in the backyard. She died in 1925 at the age of 61. Martha, Ammi’s daughter, willed the house and its surrounding property to the town of North Haven. The house served as a library for many years. Evidence of its former status can be seen today as the front porch holds a library book drop (no longer operational). Upon my arrival, I was greeted by members of the Society who offered me and other visitors a glass of lemonade and cookies. Incidentally, Martha served lemonade and cookies at the Friday Afternoon Book Club. Once inside, the members took us on a tour of the house. In the parlor, there are several pieces of colonial and Victorian furniture including chairs and tables, a victrola with a hand crank, and an old organ dating back to the late 1880s, and several pictures including those of Martha and her family on the walls. In the dining room, there are two china cabinets filled with dishes, glasses, and other memorabilia, a Federalist style dining room table with matching chairs in the center of the room, and a coal stove tucked in the corner. In the kitchen there are shelves filled with cooking and eating utensils, cookware, and glassware dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. There is also an antique icebox and washing machine as well as a washboard and tub. In the back room, the Brockett Collection of domestic and agricultural tools and equipment is nicely displayed. The collection originally belonged to Hobart Brockett who lived in town from 1875-1967, and was a farmer and

dairyman. In the two rooms upstairs, there is bedroom furniture, memorabilia, pictures, a spinning wheel, a wooden wheelchair, an 1867 sewing machine, children’s toys and clothing, as well as women’s clothing dating back to the turn of the century. There is also a small reference library with several shelves of books, scrapbooks, journals, picture books, maps, old typewriters, and writing desks. The ceiling and crown molding is original and dates to the Victorian period. While walking through the house, one has the opportunity to take a tour through time by learning and appreciating the history of North Haven as depicted by the artifacts and memorabilia on display. Unfortunately, none of the furnishings are from Martha Culver or originally belonged to the house. However, the members of the Society are grateful to all those who donated furnishings, artifacts, and memorabilia to fill the rooms and give it that museum motif. They also are thankful to the North Haven Garden Club for planting flowers and attending to the shrubbery outside the house. The Society is working with the town to restore, renovate, and preserve the Martha Culver House in order to make it a resource that all residents can enjoy. An application is pending to designate the house as an historical landmark. Bob Iverson, president of the North Haven Historical Society, and his members are enthusiastic, energetic, and conscientious about making this historical home the talk of the town. Their tireless efforts, determination, and hard work have certainly paid off as evident in the compliments from the constant flow of people at the opening celebration. They are currently working on other ways to improve the house and welcome visitors and residents to stop by. They are off to a great start and must be commended on their determination to preserve a very rich and important part of North Haven’s history. They are planning to be open on Sundays during the summer and up through September. Admission is free, and I would recommend people of all ages pay a visit to the Martha Culver House and enjoy a tour of North Haven’s history in our own backyard. Many towns have historical homes that are visible from the roadside, but not many are open to the public so let’s take advantage of what we have while going back in time and learning about the people and events that shaped and made North Haven a wonderful place to live both yesterday and today. For more information on the Martha Culver House, please contact the North Haven Historical Society at 203-239-7722 or visit the North Haven Cultural Center located on the corner of Broadway and Elm Street, on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1-4:30 p.m.

Porsche and the annual window rebellion By Joel Camassar Special to the North Haven Citizen New York Auto Show goers are welcome to climb into the majority of the cars and touch every surface, open every cubby and in general act like it’s their first time in a car. Grown-ups and kids alike are expected to adjust the driver’s seat to their liking, and with hands on the wheel and feet on the pedals, pretend that they’re driving on the Autobahn, Baja 1000 or the Long Island Expressway, depending on the automaker. All of this exploration is completely kosher; they even have people to wipe handprints off the outside of the cars. The lookonly cars, $200,000-plus Bentleys and Ferraris, are parked behind velvet ropes. Only to be visually admired and not touched, these exotic cars are parked with locked doors and rolled up windows. The vehicles that are available for public exploration are parked with the driver’s window, or all windows, rolled down and the doors unlocked. This unwritten code has stood for as long as I can remember, and yearly visitors to the Auto Show understand it. There’s absolutely

no confusion as to which car companies are trying to entice the dregs of society into purchasing a car and which lock their cars to keep the dregs of society out. But every year Porsche throws a wrench into the unwritten Auto Show code by leaving their exotic show vehicles’ windows up and doors unlocked. To make matters more confusing, some Porsches are locked and others aren’t. I have several theories on this conundrum, starting with the possibility that Porsche Corporate enjoys social experimentation and redefining social boundaries. It’s also possible that Porsche employees eagerly await watching me pull on locked door handles and hitting myself on the head with doors I assumed to be locked every year. However, I think the real reason for this locking nonsense has to do with Porsche’s place on the spectrum of exclusivity. Porsches are a relatively poor man’s exotic car, you can purchase one for a mere fifty grand, and only the top of the line models sell for over$150,000. Porsche’s rolled-up window rebellion maintains an air of exclusiv-

Friday, June 18, 2010 — The North Haven Citizen

BOE Continued from page 3 and the North Haven Rotary Club. Donations will cover three defibrillator units, storage cabinets, and training for a small number of staff. Baseball safety & public comment policy During public comment, speaker Jim Napolitano expressed concern that although a foul-ball net was hung at the high school’s Bob E. DeMayo Baseball Field, baseballs were still landing in his contiguous Waterbury Road residence. “I’d like to thank everybody for the time and the work to put up the net, but I wanted to let you know that it’s not sufficient,” Napolitano said. “From May 10 until today, we’ve had 45 balls land in our property. Of those 45, eight have hit our home. We’ve had damage to our landscape, lighting, airconditioning unit, and storm door.” “I was hit by a baseball in my yard on May 24,” he added. “Our greatest concern is for the safety of our two-and-a-half year old son, who we cannot let go out and play if there is a game or practice on the field.” Napolitano had asked for a net last year, and one was put in place before the beginning of the current baseball season. “I’m surprised that this field was designed, approved and built without considering the impact it would have on the properties adjacent,” he said. “I’m disappointed that the net in place is not sufficient to protect my house and my family, and I ask you to help me fix the situation.” Speaker Jennifer Caldwell was confused by the board’s comment policy, implemented last February, which disallows board members from responding to the public’s questions.

“What is my mode of communication with the board that represents the interests of the parents and residents of North Haven when it comes to how the school system is run?” she asked. “When you go to the website, there is really no way of contacting board members.” Board chairman Stephen DiCapua suggested that those with concerns first contact the applicable staff – teachers, principals, and board committee chairs. In response, Caldwell asked what options the public had should they be unsatisfied by staff response. “With regard to your frustration with the board, once you have contacted the appropriate staff, I think it’s important for everybody to know that this is the right place to come if you’re frustrated with the results you haven’t gotten or that you have gotten,” replied board member Wesley O’Brien. “The fact that we’re not allowed to respond in public to certain kinds of questions shouldn’t be construed as to suggest that we’re not looking into comments that have been made. That’s what these comments are for.” Caldwell said the town in which she previously resided had heightened discussion on its Board of Education, an aspect she missed. “The district I came from, you had that back and forth,” she said, “you had a feeling that your interests and concerns were really being addressed. And it may be true that our concerns are being addressed, but we don’t know that, because the communication is a one-way thing.” “It’d be nice if there was a way for that communication,” she added. Speaker Chris Peterson asked whether Republican board member Suzanne Donofrio had resigned. Board members responded that Donofrio had moved out of town, and her replacement had not yet been made.

Salmon Continued from page 12

kicked off the classroom program with seventh graders in 1995. The donated fish eggs were fertilized at a state hatchery. The North Haven Middle School was one of the first schools to sign on to the environmentally sound science project, according to Laydon, adding that about 100 schools

in the state presently participate in the venture. Labeling the adventure as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;tremendous learning experience for all the students,â&#x20AC;? Laydon added that his class not only gained a wealth of knowledge about the life cycle of the Atlantic salmon, as well as the Connecticut River watershed, but they also discovered ways to offset the damage that humans do to their environment, and

learned effective ways to restore the waterways to the quality of the past. Several subjects were integrated into the learning process, from math and science, to English

and social studies. When asked if there were an estimate on the number of fry that survive the two-year ordeal of growing in size and heading out to the open sea

and back, Laydon said in a


vise its collective bargaining contracts. Self-insured towns especially could benefit through the new program, Fontana added, since they have more control over medication purchases. Donovan had pushed for the law early this year. Eight state senators voted against the legislation. The House voted unanimously in favor of the legislation. Freda believed the law could help offset townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 28 percent cost hike in municipal employee health insurance, which has catalyzed budget season contention. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This comes at an opportune time for us in North Haven,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is

tremendously important for municipalities like North Haven, because now, as we move forward, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have the opportunity to tie in with this aggregate purchasing power that the state of Connecticut has.â&#x20AC;? Fontana said the law represented political cooperation, to North Havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This illustrates what I think is one of our guiding principals at the state level, which is that we believe very strongly in working across partisan lines to pass common sense legislation that could help towns,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The town is really positioned well to take advantage of this and save some money.â&#x20AC;? Further state legislation could help North Haven save more on healthcare costs, according to Fontana. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also passed a bill to require insurance companies to give towns their health care claims data, so that way they can design wellness programs to try to reduce their health care cost,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Finally, we passed a bill to allow towns to join together to purchase health insurance,â&#x20AC;? Fontana added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so that if North Haven believes they can save money by trying to join with a neighboring community, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something else they can do.â&#x20AC;? Additional reporting by George Moore, The RecordJournal

Continued from page 2 it,â&#x20AC;? Donovan added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully you will be able to save some money, and you can tell the people of North Haven that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in good shape.â&#x20AC;? Towns and cities utilizing the law will have two options, according to Fontana. Retain existing benefit structures while purchasing medication through the state, or buying into the state benefit plan for prescriptions. The former option, Fontana said, would be relatively easy for municipalities to implement, though the latter could require a town to re-

North Haven contestants Courtesy of Ann DeMatteo

Two young women who are representing North Haven are seeking college scholarships and the right to represent Connecticut at two national pageants. Gretchen Michelle Hahn, Miss Greater North Haven, has her sights set on becoming Miss America. And Greater North Haven’s Outstanding Teen Casey DelBasso wants to represent the state at Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Pageant in August. But first, they must compete in the 2010 Miss Connecticut and Connecticut’s Outstanding Teen pageants. The events will be held at 7:30 p.m., June 24 and 25, and 7 p.m., June 26 at the Garde Arts Center in New London. The public is invited. Hahn, 23, is a 2009 graduate of Smith College. Hahn was on the dean’s list, a First Group Scholar and president of the Smith College Republicans while completing her undergraduate degree in Government and Public Policy. Currently, she spends her time working for the charity online auction company, BiddingForGood and promoting her platform of the USO: Supporting the Men And Women Who Serve Our Country. Hahn will be singing in the pageant’s talent competition. She is a Stamford resident who won the North Haven title in a pageant sponsored by the Jared Andrew Brown Studio of North Haven. Casey DelBasso, a junior at Lauralton Hall in Milford, is president of Students Against Destructive Decisions and is active in the musical theater program. Casey is an honor roll student and has been inducted into the Society of High School Scholars. She recently was awarded the Francis Warde Service Award for 100 hours of community service hours, a citizenship award for her work with SADD and being a peer tutor, and an excellence in music award. She promotes SADD as part of her pageant community service platform. In addition, Casey was recently appointed as a Youth Ambassador for “Get In Touch Foundation,” an organization that assists girls and women in understanding their bodies in connection with the crusade against breast cancer. Casey also volunteers at the Milford Senior Center. Casey also won her local title at the pageant sponsored by Jared Andrew Brown. Tickets for the pageant can be obtained at the door or in advance by calling the Garde box office at 860-444-7373 or by visiting

Porsche wants to appear exclusive, but at the same time not as pretentious as many British and Italian â&#x20AC;&#x153;look but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t touch with your grimy plebeian handsâ&#x20AC;? automakers. The fact is, only those brave enough to risk looking like a moron by pulling on a locked door have a chance of sitting in the leather laden interior of a Porsche. However, there exists an elite class of people allowed to climb in and play in the exotic cars. I was one of the privileged few this year because of a press pass received on Town Times credentials (big thanks, Wendy and Sue!). I went to the Auto Show before it officially started on press days and got to pretend

I was driving a half-million dollar ultra-rare Mercedes SLS Gulling on the Autobahn. During the show, however, it seems the only credentials required for exotic car access is a dark suit and a non-specific European accent, though Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure some sort of name tag is also necessary. In the end, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t decide how I feel about Porsches at the Auto Show with closed windows and open doors. On one hand, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an irritating social nonconformity that frustrates me every year because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible to figure out which Porsches are locked. On the other hand, Porsche, in an understated way, is sticking it to the other exotic car makers by letting the public sit in some of their cars. Either way, next year Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m confronting a Porsche representative to demand an explanation!

behind the cycling events are a very strong committee, Hannon recognized Karen Kalenauskas as indispensable because of her organization of the cycling competition over the years. Headquartered in the Edmor Commercial Complex on State Street in Hamden, Hannon said that there are many corporate sponsors who “make it all possible.” She explained that of the 2,500 athletes involved last weekend, 180 of them were in the bike races and went through training with volunteer coaches for 8-10 weeks in order to qualify at the tryouts which were held last March in Cheshire at the CL&P Service Center. Hannon added that the corporate sponsors support 84 ongoing local programs across the state. The trailer truck boxes used for storage of equipment (such as the bicycles) during the Olympics, which

fulfill their dreams as they train, compete and succeed in more than 50 tournaments and competitions in 21 different sports.” Five state level events are held each year, as well as regional and invitational competitions. The World Games are held every two years and alternate between winter and summer sports. When speaking about the national and World Games, Hannon said that our state qualified last year for nine different sports, and athletes will fly to Lincoln, Nebraska for a week in July for the USA Games. Half of the participants will be flown out of Groton/New London in private planes courtesy of the Cesna Corporation. Next summer the World Games will be held in Greece, and Connecticut is presently planning to send two athletes in golf and four athletes in the sailing competition.

Budget Continued from page 1 cost of government.” “It is my commitment to continue working over the course of time to reduce the cost structure of North Haven,” Freda continued, “but at the same time maintain a full level of services.” Freda attributed the referendum result to the $1.99 million reduction from the initially proposed budget, a cut he said that kept in place a majority of town services, including weekly bulk leaf pickup. That service, priced annually at $266,250, was originally removed, but was returned to the budget after an outpouring of public support. To help make up the reinstated line item, the transfer station’s construction and demolition drop operations were eliminated, saving $70,000. Further cuts will be sought in the Public Works Department to balance the remaining $164,000 cost of bulk leaf pickup. The education budget, shaved $850,000 in the approved budget, may dictate school district layoffs. However, nine retirements could render job losses unnecessary. “I’m very happy about the budget’s passing last night,” said Board of Education chairman Sandra Cummings. “If the budget didn’t pass, it would have been gone back to the Board of Education, who would have cut education again, which would have been devastating.” “I’m very thankful to the PTA for getting out the word to vote,” Cummings continued. “And I’m very thankful to the voters who came out in support of the budget.” Freda was worried that despite increased referendum publicity, voter participation remained low. “When I look at 25.6 percent, I see 74.4 per-

cent who did not vote,” he said. “I need to do a better job at creating more interest in referendums.” “My goal is to take that 25.6 percent and get it to a higher level,” Freda added. “I think the solution might lie in me creating more and more interest in town through the medium of North Haven Television, talking to residences and trying to keep people up to date with town.” With budget season closing, Freda said he would look to mitigate the fears of those who voted no at referendum. “Now that the budget process is behind me, I’ll be moving into the stage when I can spend more time on the economic development side,” he said. “I’m still very optimistic that we will grow economic development in North Haven. It will be an intense focus of mine from this point forward.” Democrat town committee chairman Peter Criscuolo was glad the budget passed. “I’m very happy,” he said. “We don’t need any more cuts to any more of the departments in town. All of our town unions have already done a fair shake. They’ve already made their concessions.” “I believe the budget is a good budget,” Criscuolo added. “The Board of Finance worked very hard to trim anything out of it that wasn’t a dire necessity.” Republican town committee chairman Deborah WardO’Brien echoed Criscuolo. “I’m thrilled,” she said of the budget’s success. “I think it’s good for everyone. I don’t think North Haven can afford any more reductions in services, although we did need to take some reductions.” “We knew we’d have a tax increase, it’s sad in this economy, but we knew we’d have one,” O’Brien added. “I think the budget is fair. It’s good for the elderly. It’s good for parents, and the education side will be served well.”
