Yaccarino talks second term By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

North Haven Republican State Representative Dave Yaccarino ran unopposed last year while winning reelection for his Yaccarino General Assembly seat. No longer a freshman politician in Hartford, Yaccarino enters the new legislative session with two years experience and a slate of policy ideas to explore in 2013. The Citizen recently sat down with Yaccarino, a lifelong North Haven resident and owner and operator of DJ Comics & Collectibles on Lincoln Street. Q: What are your thoughts as you begin the new session of General Assembly? A: People should not forget about the budget. We’re facing a significant deficit next year. We’ve already had some discussions on that but nothing has gotten exciting yet. We addressed the deficit from this year with that reduction plan, which was bipartisan. We Republicans in Connecticut — and Connecti-

cut Democrats — we’re much different that our counterparts in Washington D.C. We mitigated our budget deficit in a bipartisan fashion. Hopefully we can continue in that fashion moving forward in General Assembly. Q: What has been the initial General Assembly response to Newtown? A: The focus is on public safety. Among the four committees I serve on, I’m now the assistant ranking member of the Public Safety Committee. We’ve got to focus on the mental health issue. And we’ve got to focus on guns. I’m going to speak with Mossberg & Sons, the gun maker in North Haven. I do think we need to do more with the background checks before someone buys a rifle. And there has to be more of a waiting period for rifles. There’s a long waiting period for handguns now. But you can still go into a Wal-Mart and buy a rifle and not have to wait that long of a time before it’s yours. That’s ludicrous. I’ll be holding public forums on this in North Haven in the near future. I would possibly look at requiring a separate permit for buying ammo. Right now you

Crushing victim identified By Richie Rathsack and Eric Heredia The North Haven Citizen Police on Jan. 11 identified the man who died the Wednesday before at Sims Metal Management as Francis Almeida, 72, of Durham. Police said Almeida was unloading a scrap automobile from his own car carrier when he suffered a fatal, crushing injury at 12:33 p.m. at the North Haven business. Emergency personnel arrived on scene to find him unresponsive, with a crushed chest and abdomen, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene. “While our employees immediately responded with first aid and notified emergency services, sadly, he was unable to be revived,” said Sims Metal Management communications and public relations manager Daniel Strechay in a statement. “No compa-

ny personnel were involved in this tragic accident.” Strechay added that the company is working with state police, North Haven police and OSHA in their investigations. “As everyone knows, the safety of Sims Metal Management’s employees and visitors to our facilities is of the utmost importance and an issue we spend a tremendous amount of time and resources on,” he added. “Our heartfelt condolences go out to our customer’s family, friends and coworkers.” An autopsy will be performed at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Farmington, police said. The police department was assisted in the investigation by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the state Motor Vehicle Department and the South Central Regional Traffic Unit.

Animal Haven Pet of the Week — Kyla

Art league to host Connecticut artist

Meet Kyla! This beautiful, good-natured cat was a bit reserved when she first came to the shelter, but has come out of her shell. She now wanders about the shelter spending some of her time in the community cat room with the other cats, and some of her time in the reception area. She loves to hang out at the front desk, keeping the staff company and, sometimes, walking across the computer keyboard as they are working. She’s so sweet they forgive her for causing typos! Kyla is a 7-year-old, tiger-striped cat with a white chest and belly, and soft green eyes. She was turned in to the shelter, almost a year ago, when her previous owners moved and had to leave her behind. She is a fun-loving, good cat looking to find her forever home. Kyla is spayed and current on her vaccinations. She will make a wonderful companion! For more information, call the Animal Haven, 89 Mill Road, North Haven, at (203) 2392641 or visit theanimalhaven.com. The Animal Haven is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, noon to 3 p.m., Thursday 5 to 7 p.m. or Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. The Animal Haven has been dedicated to taking in adoptable homeless cats and dogs, providing complete veterinary care for them, and finding them well-matched, loving homes since 1948.

The Hamden Art League is scheduled to meet Tuesday, Feb. 19, at the Miller Memorial Library Senior Center, 2901 Dixwell Avenue, Hamden. Coffee and conversation begins at 7 p.m., followed by a brief business meeting at 7:15 and the artist’s program at 7:30 p.m. If the library is closed due to inclement weather, the meeting will be cancelled. Artist Jack Broderick will feature a live demonstration of painting a still life in oil. He also plans to talk about how drawing is fundamental to the painting process. Broderick uses both image and feeling in developing his paintings. For more information, visit hamdenartleague.com

Tips to help you survive and thrive this winter

The winter season has arrived and with it comes winter storms and cold temperatures, which can create hazardous conditions. The Plainville-Southington Regional Health District says if you plan ahead, you can stay safe and healthy by being prepared for the rigors of the season. Respect winter storm dangers When the snow falls, people need to get out either for work, school, or recreation. Snow shoveling is an activity that many cannot avoid. Shoveling is strenuous exercise, and with extreme cold weather it can increase blood pressure, accelerate the heart rate and create internal body conditions that restrict blood flow to the heart. All these factors increase the risk of heart attack. As many as 1,200 heartrelated deaths occur yearly during and after major snowstorms. People with any type of heart condition should avoid shoveling. Minimize dangers of snow shoveling

Poor driving conditions are just one of the many hazards we face in the winter. Exercise regularly and keep yourself in shape all year to be ready for vigorous winter activity. Dress warmly when going outside so as not to expend energy keeping warm, and wear layers so some can be removed to avoid overheating. Invest in the best pair of gloves you can afford.

Take breaks, and pay attention to how your body feels during those breaks. If you are getting out of breath, slow your pace and rest. If tired, stop shoveling. Shovel with a smaller rather than larger shovel – lifting less weight will put less strain on your heart. Use your legs, not your back, and

push the snow as far as possible before lifting it. If your experience chest pain or upper body pain that doesn’t go away or keeps coming back, call 911. Avoid broken bones by being careful when walking in the snow. Wear padded gloves, jackets and hats to help cushion falls. Sprinkle cat litter or sand on icy patches. Be aware of hypothermia and frostbite dangers Hypothermia is abnormally low body temperature that occurs when your body loses more heat that it can produce, and eventually the stored energy in your body is used up. This affects the brain causing the victim not to think clearly or move well. Early symptoms include shivering, fatigue, loss of coordination, disorientation, and confusion. Frostbite is an injury caused by freezing parts of the body. Frostbite causes a loss of feeling and color in the affected areas. Symptoms include reduced blood flow to hand and feet, numbness, tin-

Veterans committee gains standing in General Assembly

HARTFORD — After eight years of “select” temporary status, the General Assembly’s Veterans’ Affairs Committee was elevated to permanent “standing” status for the 2013 Regular Legislative Session, and all legislative sessions thereafter. Committee Co-Chairmen Senator Carlo Leone (D-Stamford) and Rep. Jack Hennessy (DBridgeport) joined with legislative leadership, military veterans and veterans’ advocates to make the announcement. Senator Leone, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, said, “Our

nation’s commitment to serve our veterans in their retirement is an ongoing and unending one, in recognition of the enormous sacrifices that we call upon them to make. After many years, the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs finally has a permanent status commensurate with such an important responsibility.”

“I am pleased we are conveying this strong message to all of our veterans and active service members that we believe the Committee on Veterans Affairs should have the authority to move legislation,” said Rep. Hennessy, himself a veteran of the U.S. Army. “I thank the veterans, advocates and House and Senate leaders for making

sure that from this point on we may properly represent veterans in the State Legislature.” North Haven State Representative Dave Yaccarino, a former member of the U.S. Navy Reserve, will serve as the leading House Republican on the committee. “Our veterans have sacrificed so much for us and we

Veterans Continued from page 4 ice be forgotten. I look forward to using my position on the committee to advance the interests of our veterans this session.” Jan. 9 marked the first day of the 2013 Session of the General Assembly. At the beginning of the session, both the House of Representatives and the Senate voted to adopt rules elevating the Veterans’ Affairs Committee to permanent “standing” status. Since its creation in 2005, the com-

mittee had to date only been designated a temporary “select” status. “Our veterans have dedicated so much of themselves in service of our country,” said Senate President Pro Tempore Donald E. Williams, Jr. (D-Brooklyn). “The elevation of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee to full committee status reflects the legislature’s commitment to helping our veterans transition home and find meaningful employment.” “Select” committees may not bring bills directly to the

floor of either chamber of the legislature. Such bills must first be taken up and passed in another committee, then brought to the floor by the other committee’s chairperson. Bills introduced in “standing” committees do not face these same requirements. The decision to elevate the Veterans’ Affairs Committee to “standing” status was arrived at in a bipartisan manner, with broad support amongst legislators of both parties. The move was also heralded by the Connecticut Veter-

ans’ Military Coalition and many other veterans’ advocacy organizations. Dan Thurston, Chairman of the Connecticut Veterans and Military Coalition (CVMC) and Past State Commander of The American Legion said, “It has been the goal of the Connecticut Veterans and Military Coalition (CVMC) to have the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs become a Standing Committee. This is a significant event for our States’ Veterans and

‘Argo’ steals the show at Golden Globes David Germain The Associated Press

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. The Iran hostage thriller “Argo” was a surprise bestdrama winner at Sunday’s Golden Globes, beating out the Civil War epic “Lincoln,” which had emerged as an awards-season favorite. “Argo” also claimed the directing prize for Ben Affleck, a prize that normally bodes well for an Academy Award win — except he missed out on an Oscar nomination this time. Affleck’s now in an unusual position during Hollywood’s long awards season, taking home the top filmmaking trophy at the secondhighest film honors knowing he does not have a shot at an Oscar. And the night left “Argo” taking home the top prize at the Globes but standing as a long shot for best picture at the Feb. 24 Oscars, where films almost never win if their directors are not nominated.

In a breathless, rapid-fire speech, Affleck gushed over the names of other nominees presenter Halle Berry had read off: Steven Spielberg for “Lincoln,” Ang Lee for “Life of Pi,” Kathryn Bigelow for “Zero Dark Thirty” and Quentin Tarantino for “Django Unchained.” “Look, I don’t care what the award is. When they put your name next to the names she just read off, it’s an extraordinary thing in your life,” Affleck said. “Les Miserables” was named best musical or comedy, while Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway claimed acting prizes. Besides the three wins for “Les Miserables” and two for “Argo,” the show was a mixed bag, with awards spreads around a number of films. “Lincoln” came in leading with seven nominations but lost all but one, for Daniel Day-Lewis as best actor in the title role of “Lincoln.” “If I had this on a timeshare basis with my wonder-

ful gifted colleagues, I might just hope to keep it for one day of the year, and I’d be happy with that,” said DayLewis, who previously won a Globe for “There Will Be Blood” and is a two-time Oscar winner with a strong shot at a third. “Zero Dark Thirty” star Jessica Chastain won the Globe for dramatic actress as a CIA agent obsessively pursuing Bin Laden. Other acting prizes went to Jennifer Lawrence as best musical or comedy actress for the oddball romance “Silver Linings Playbook” and Christoph Waltz as supporting actor for the slave-revenge tale “Django Unchained.” “Les Miserables,” the musical based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel earned Jackman the Globe for musical or comedy actor as tragic hero Jean Valjean. Hathaway won supporting actress as a single mom forced into prostitution. “Thank you for this lovely blunt object that I will

forevermore use as a weapon against self-doubt,” Hathaway said. Jackman was a bit hoarse from the flu, but his Globe win seemed to be the right antidote. But when it comes to Hollywood’s highest honors, “Les Miserables” already has a big obstacle, also failing to earn a best-director slot for filmmaker Tom Hooper at the Feb. 24 Oscars. Last Thursday’s Oscar nominations held some shockers, including the

omission of Affleck from the directing lineup, along with fellow Globe nominee Bigelow. Bigelow and Affleck also were nominated for top honors by the Directors Guild of America, whose contenders usually match up closely with the Oscar field. Former President Bill Clinton upstaged Hollywood’s elite with a surprise appearance to introduce Spielberg’s Civil War epic “Lincoln,” which was up for best drama.

Shore Line Trolley Museum receives donation

East Haven Mayor Joseph A. Maturo, Nathan Nietering and Wayne Sandford of the Shore Line Trolley Museum, Kelly Wade Bettuchi of AT&T Connecticut, Paul Silberquit of Gateway Community College, Shore Line Trolley Museum President Jeff Hakner, and State Senator Len Fasano. AT&T Connecticut announced a $10,000 donation to the Branford Electric Railway Association, Inc. and the Shore Line Trolley Museum to fund training for students from the Gateway Community College Railroad Technology Program. The goal of the Railway Technology Program – the first of its kind in New England - is to produce a new cadre of candidates to replace the aging work force in the railroad industry that is soon to retire. The program will also enhance the education of current Metro-North employees who are eligible for tuition assistance through the employee union. The State of Connecticut has purchased a large new fleet of car sets that will need local maintenance in New Haven by well-trained employees. Interns from GCC will be able to complete their 120hour internship program and receive the necessary hands-on experience with car repairs, signal systems and electric traction motors at the Shore Line Trolley Museum.

Engagement

Truth about DARE Prior to the holidays, Sgt. Christopher Thorpe thanked the North Haven Rotary Club for having the opportunity to speak to the group, as well as for its annual donation to the DARE Program. He said that he has been on the police force for 13 years and in that time has been involved with the DARE program for 12 of those years. He now serves as a DARE coordinator teaching other officers about the program and how to relate the curriculum to the children of the community. He explained that DARE was Sergeant Christopher Thorpe, the North Haven founded in Los Angeles, in DARE Officer, thanked listeners after Rotarian 1983.

The program the club. which is now international has been in North Haven since 1991. The curriculum has evolved over time and presently concentrates on educating youth about the impact of substance abuse, bullying, peer pressure, and making good decisions. The program has been taught at various elementary grade levels, but Thorpe said that he is hopeful that he can bring the program to the middle school where the children are most impressionable. He also commented on how rewarding it has been for him to be involved in DARE, and said that he especially enjoys those occasions when former DARE students of his who are now in their early twenties come back to thank him for what he has done for them. Once again, he thanked the Rotary Club for its donations over the years which help to keep the program going, because without donations from the community there would be no program. He added that the community is fortunate that First Selectman Mike Freda is also supportive of the DARE Program. Text and Photo courtesy of David Marchesseault & George Guertin, Rotary PR Committee

Town aid and higher state taxes By Chris Powell

Connecticut has endured decades of advertising by the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities warning that reductions in state financial grants to cities and towns will result in higher municipal property taxes. But throughout this time, despite ever-increasing state financial grants to municipalities, Connecticut somehow has gotten higher municipal property taxes anyway. Maybe what Connecticut needs now is another statewide organization to advertise the truer and more relevant converse of the CCM ads. That is, increasing state financial aid to municipalities means higher state taxes — like last year’s record state tax increase, in-

cluding increases in the state income tax and the sales tax, enacted in large part in the name of maintaining municipal aid and restraining municipal property taxes. After all this tax raising in the name of not raising taxes, why should anyone pay attention to CCM anymore? Most Connecticut residents who pay more in taxes than they consume in government services — that is, most people who are not employed by government or on welfare — are exploited either way. So they no longer may see the righteousness long presumed by CCM’s advertising, especially since municipalities are losing their reputation for being “closer to the people” and better guardians of the pub-

lic purse than state government. For example, last week the Meriden Record-Journal reported that the city has hired a police officer who receives a disability pension from Bridgeport, where he was an officer for 15 years before retiring on account of a knee injury. The injury having healed, the officer got his job in Meriden only to be injured in a criminal’s attack on him and two other officers. So now he’s collecting his Meriden salary on medical leave as well as his disability pension from Bridgeport. This situation, the Record-Journal reported, appears to be a peculiarity of Bridgeport’s generous la-

Flu cases increasing in Connecticut By V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH According to data collected by the Connecticut Department of Public Health, flu activity is widespread and increasing. There has been an increase in the percent of total emergency room visits attributed to fever/flu. There has also been a large increase in the number of flu-related doctor visits and hospitalizations with influenza-associated illness. Within the Quinnipiac Valley Health District, many cases have been laboratory-confirmed, with many more unofficially (not laboratory diagnosed) occurring. In fact, New Haven County has the highest incidence of confirmed influenza cases. Cases continue to be identified within district towns. If you have not had a flu shot, it is not too late! Influenza illness can continue throughout the spring. Many doctors and pharmacies are still offering flu vaccines. While a flu shot is not a 100-percent

guarantee that you will not get the flu, it can decrease the severity of the illness if you do develop flu. The flu vaccine is currently the best tool public health has to decrease the incidence of influenza. In addition to the flu shot, there are several other actions you can take to help prevent getting and/or spreading the flu: — Use respiratory etiquette. Cover your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze with a tissue. (If a tissue is unavailable, at least try to cough into your sleeve.) Dispose of used tissues in a trash can. — Wash your hands frequently and properly with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. This is one of the most important actions you can

Picture perfect

School security upgrades By Kyle Swartz With 2013 comes another municipal budget season, and those who allocate school finances must this year contemplate a tricky subject: security upgrades. The swift and forceful manner in which Newtown shooter Adam Lanza gained access to Sandy Hook Elementary School understandably has people nationwide questioning school safety. That building had a state-of-the-art buzz-in system, fairly ubiquitous in education districts. Visitors press a button by locked doors to alert front-office personnel of their presence. Staffers inside examine the guest through security cameras and then can press a button which unlocks the doors. Lanza circumvented this by simply blowing out a window with a high-powered gun. In response, academic administrators nationwide sensibly are including money in 2013-14 budgets for security upgrades. But officials must exercise discretion in authorizing these expenditures. One could wonder what safety enhancements are sufficient to deter a crazed gunman armed with assault-weapons. Moreover, as aptly proffered by Wallingford Police Chief Douglas Dortenzio at a recent symposium on this topic, it’s important to avoid “costly, knee-jerk reactions” to Newtown (Record-Journal, 1-9). Overspending on complex security systems which do little — except in worstcase scenarios — would be a needless

drain on education finances in tight economic conditions. Still, there are upgrades worth implementing. Education officials should seriously consider buzz-in systems, plus assigning all workers photo ID cards needed for entrance. While both are insufficient to repel an assault on the extreme level of Lanza, they are basic, useful, contemporary enhancements which do raise a structure’s general safety. What would it take to mitigate atypical situations like Lanza? Two pricy ideas floated in Wallingford possibly could have helped. Extensive installation of security cameras around school grounds with someone watching feed constantly could have detected sooner an unknown person approaching with large firearms. Staff could then summon police and warn classrooms more quickly. Another option is setting up an alarm system which goes off when someone gains unauthorized access. This too could alert occupants to hide or flee, and might scare off a wouldbe attacker. But both expensive proposals are mostly about better vigilance. Neither is guaranteed to thwart a maniacal assailant. Thankfully, cases like Newtown are anomalies, inconsistencies within the overall safety of American academic districts. It’s therefore wiser to make sure schools feature modern security measures within

tration, some municipalities try a lot harder to get value than others. Lacking a middle class independent of government, Bridgeport is in the grip of a parasitic Democratic Party machine, the city’s newspaper, the Connecticut Post, having reported in 2006 that 80 percent of the members of the city’s Democratic committee had city government jobs, a close relative on the city payroll, a city pension, or a city office. Getting value for the public is seldom high on city government’s agenda in Connecticut, nor on CCM’s. No, the main objective is just to get more money without more accountability when it should be to get more value for less money. Chris Powell is managing editor of the Journal Inquirer, Manchester.

Flu Continued from page 10 take to prevent the spread of illnesses in yourself and others. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective for removing germs (but not dirt). — Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way. — If you are sick with flulike illness (defined as a fever of 100 degrees or higher and a cough or sore throat) stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine. The rest of the office or your child’s school does not want your germs. — When you are sick, stay home (except to seek medical care or other necessities) and limit contact with others. This will help prevent the spread of infection. In addition, try to avoid persons who are ill if you can. If you have a medical condition or if a viral illness

that doesn’t show signs of improvement within a few days, it is a good idea to check with your healthcare provider (by phone first) if you have an influenza-like illness. This is especially true if the illness is accompanied by a high fever, unusual symptoms, difficulty breathing, moderate pain or other severe symptoms. While most people recover without complication from the garden-variety viral illness, others may develop complications such as sinusitis or pneumonia.

large education grant for town last year. Unfortunately, I don’t see that repeating this year. But I do want to see the whole ECS system revamped. For North Haven and other municipalities, we’re going to try to have municipal aid flat funded in the next budget. I know that [First Selectman] Mike Freda and the Board of Finance are concerned about that. I don’t blame them. That aid might dip because of the deficit. I spoke with [Public Works Director] Lynn Sadosky and apparently the town needs more money for athletic fields. There aren’t enough fields for all the leagues and sports teams that want to use them. I will look into that. Q: What will be your main focuses in General Assembly? A: To me, jobs are the key to everything. We need more good-paying jobs. In any way possible we need to bring these jobs to Connecticut. As a legislative body, that means staying constant with the bipartisan jobs bill we passed 14 months ago. That means trying to lower energy costs for businesses. That means having consistency as a government. That’s what businesses really want: consistency in their government. Businesses do not like constant changes in taxes and rates and policies, etcetera. For me, Governor Dannel Malloy’s First Five initiative was not successful. [Editor’s note: First Five gave hundreds of millions in state funding and tax breaks to numerous large companies in Connecticut to expand their workforces.] I’d rather have that money going toward small businesses. That’s something I will try to work on this year. Part of the problems in

our state is governmental red tape. We have to have some rules and regulations, but it shouldn’t take so long for businesses to get things through the government. I want the state to overhaul its computer technology. Yale-New Haven Hospital just overhauled its computer system and it’s going to save millions. The state is 20-25 years behind on this. I know this is a large project, but we can’t keep putting off these things. Last year, I proposed a bill that would allow retired college professors and instructors, who want to go back to teaching on a part-time basis, to do so as self-employed contractors, instead of directly rejoining the school staff and workplace union. These people could then earn higher wages while causing less liability for the state. These people are already retired and have paid all their union dues. This would save the state $32 million. That’s $32 million that could be used by the state elsewhere. And this helps older people stay in the workforce. This got shut down last year because the unions were afraid that we wouldn’t stop at rehired retirees and that we would try to go after full-time employees. I would never want to do that. I would never want to take something from people like that. I would like to see the full property tax exemption returned. In Connecticut it’s $300. The majority party lowered it to that two years ago. It used to be $500. As the ranking member of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, I would also like to see property exemptions raised for veterans. That hasn’t changed since 1948.

Yaccarino Continued from page 1 only need a gun permit for that. I’m not sure if requiring a separate permit for ammo is feasible, though. I don’t think the ban on assault weapons should ever have been lifted. I don’t see any reason why we would have assault weapons. And we need to look at extended ammo clips. Regarding mental health, last year I tried to introduce legislation similar to Florida’s Baker Act of 1971. What that would do is that people who check into a clinic or hospital for drug addiction or mental health issues would have to stay in there for, mandatory, three to five days. Right now in Connecticut these people can turn around and leave the next day. With three-to-five days, you can get a full evaluation. Obviously, this is not going to stop everything related to mental health and gun violence. But this is a start. The bottom line is that this would help people get a proper diagnosis and proper help. Hopefully, we can solve some of their ills. I’m going to try to pass this legislation again this year. It didn’t go anywhere last year. Q: What will you work on specifically regarding North Haven? A: Everything you do in Harford affects North Haven. If we can balance the state budget without raising taxes and keep municipal aid intact, that’s going to help North Haven.

With tie, hockey improves By Kevin Pataky and Kyle Swartz Special to The Citizen

North Haven High School boys’ varsity hockey played their first home game in three weeks after a not-sosuccessful road trip and took on one of Division II’s top teams in Daniel Hand. The Indians looked rejuvenated as they scored first on a goal by Senior Dylan VanBremer a little less than seven minutes into the game. “We started off very strong in the first period,” said NHHS hockey head coach Tom Roche. “We had a good first period. That was one of the better periods we played all year.” However, Hand took the lead 2-1 in the second period when Danny Braumann and Sam LaFontaine scored a pair of goals less than a minute apart. “We were very excited in the locker room after that first period, excited to come out and keep playing strong, but we had a two-to-three minute lapse in the second period where we let in two goals,” Roche said. “That really hurt us. We’ve been struggling all season in the second period.” “We dug ourselves a hole in that period and had to work out way out,” he added. Hand’s lead held up until midway through the third period, when Indian sophomore Tyler Luedee tied the score 22 with a goal. The two teams then played an eight-minute overtime period in which neither scored, so the contest ended up in a 22 stalemate. Sophomore Andrew Graziano made numerous important saves during the contest, including a stop in the overtime which prevented the Tigers from winning. Overall, Graziano had 25 saves. “We played a good third period and overtime,” Roche said. “Our defense was working well. We tried different combinations on defense. Different kids were stepping up.

Sophomore goalie Andrew Graziano preserves the tie with a big save in the overtime period. Sophomore Cameron Owens fights for position in front of Hand’s net.

We were cutting off passing lanes through center ice.” “But we just couldn’t get the puck in the net for the win,” he added. “We had some opportunities but then the clock ran out.” The tie improved North Haven’s season record to 1-62. With only 11 games re-

maining, however, the Indians need to win 6 more games to qualify for this year’s playoffs. “We’re still confident that we’ll make the playoffs,” Roche said. “We have a lot of good teams ahead of us, a lot of tough battles, but we’re still very confident.”

North Haven now HEARTsafe For well over two years, Richard DiNorscia, a former president of the North Haven Rotary Club, was dedicated to delivering life saving devices for public buildings in North Haven and providing training for town employees in cardiopulmonary resuscitation. He has reported that First Selectman Michael Freda, as well as several administrators in the schools and town facilities, have expressed their appreciation to the club for donating several of the heart de- Rotarians Rick DiNorscia, left, and Mark Lesage fibrillators. Under his leader- announced the designation of North Haven as a ship, the North Haven Rotary HEARTSafe Community in late December. Club supported a multi-year drive to provide a number of defibrillators for public buildings throughout the community, as well as staff training. Recently, in his words of praise for the past president’s effort to help the town achieve the special recognition, Rotary District Governor-Elect Dr. Richard Bassett described DiNorscia’s accomplishment as his “personal legacy.” Most of the town-owned Automated External Defibrillators made by Medtronic were provided through the efforts of the North Haven Rotary Club. Dating back to the term of Nicola Casella’s presidency in 2010, three of the $1,000 units which were in- Clintonville Elementary School Principal Loretta stalled at the elementary Dowling and Mark Lesage posed with an AED obschools were purchased tained through the North Haven Rotary Club. through a combination of the club’s resources, as well as donations from Mario Landino, the owner of Paul Mitchell Academy on Washington Avenue, and through the club’s partnership with Kids for Kids, Inc. Since then, AED’s were located in areas such as the town’s library and pool directly through the service club’s annual fund raisers, and partially due to a $3,000 matching grant obtained by DiNorscia through Rotary District 7980 in order to obtain the state’s recognition of North Haven as a HEARTSafe Community. The training in CPR, as well as in the use of the life saving devices, was provided at no cost to the town by Nelson Ambulance Service. The classes were arranged by their employee, Mark Lesage, who was recently elected as the club’s July 2013 vice president. Text & photos courtesy of David Marchesseault, Rotary PR Chairman
