Do you believe in ghosts? By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

Do you believe in the paranormal? Do you believe in ghosts, spiritual energies, voices audible from other dimensions and historical tragedies haunting sites centuries later? With Halloween spirit in the air, the North Haven Library invited attendees to consider such questions at an Oct. 16 presentation by the Northeast Paranormal Investigations Society. “We’re skeptics ourselves,” said Adam Shefts, a North Haven native, and director, founder and lead investigator for NPIS. “We go into places as skeptics. We don’t assume anything.” About 80 people packed the library’s community room for NPIS’ audiovisual presentation, which included examples from dozens of potentially supernatural locations in and near Connecticut. “Everything we show is open to interpretation,” said NPIS member Mark Firulli. Shefts and his team use an array of recording equipment, from basic to advanced, to capture images, videos and audio examples of what they believe could be proof of paranormal activity. They visit and catalogue places rumored to be visited by spirits — with an emphasis on history, plus thorough examination and respect. “We would never try to provoke,” Shefts said. “We don’t encourage trying to provoke, like people do on some of those reality shows on television.” “None of the experiences

we’ve had have been scary, because we conduct investigations respectfully,” he added. “Our experiences are interesting, but not scary. And places we went to weren’t necessarily haunted. ‘Haunted’ is one of the most-overused words. Haunted implies that something paranormal is making everyday life more difficult at a location. This is not generally the case.” A NPIS video shown early seemed to depict a clear, barely visible presence moving across the corner of a room in Madison’s Deacon John Grave House, built in 1681. The see-through presence had the approximate size and shape of an adult person. “We spent four hours trying to recreate that shadow, whatever you want to call it,” Shefts said. “We stood in the corner of the room and couldn’t recreate it. We had investigators standing outside the windows, walking past the windows and walking past streetlights outside the windows. It was impossible to recreate.” Typically, NPIS goes to places of past significance like the Deacon John Grave House. “We focus on historical locations to tie evidence into what we find there,” Shefts said. “It gives us more to use as proof.” Another of these sites was Norwalk’s Sheffield Island Lighthouse, constructed in 1827 and now a tourist attraction. Historical accounts, Shefts said, tell of a lighthouse keeper residing there in the 1800s with his wife and daughter. The relationship between husband See Ghosts, page 21

Election 2012

Rebuild the middleclass

Compromise and leadership

By Steve Fontana

By Len Fasano

Everywhere I go in Wallingford, East Haven, North Haven, and Durham, people tell me that their middleclass way of life is disappearing, and that they want their elected leaders to do something about it. I’m running for Fontana the State Senate because I will do just that – by starting to rebuild the middleclass. To rebuild the middleclass, we can’t keep pursuing the same trickledown economic policies that have failed to pull us out of this recession. We have to go back to what we know works: investing in people and businesses, and giving them the ability and opportunity to succeed.

Governor Dannel Malloy stated in his inaugural address that he is going to take us down a road less traveled. I believe we now know why that road is less traveled. Under Governor Malloy’s leadership, Connecticut has been faced Fasano with the highest tax increase in history. The $2.6 billion in tax increases over two years, including but not limited to raising of the sales tax from 6 percent to 6.35 percent, tax on non-prescription drugs, tax on clothing under $50 and a significant reduction in your home property tax credit, has lead Connecticut in the wrong direction. Unemployment has reached 9 percent.

Annual haunted house back for more scares By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

After a one-year hiatus, the haunting is back. Today and tomorrow, the Faith United Methodist Church, 81 Clintonville Road, will host its 26th annual

Haunted House and Halloween Party. Hours of operation are 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m for both Friday and Saturday.

“We had to take a break last year,” said Faith United parishioner David Bogert, who helps produce the twoday event each year. “We had had 25 great years, and we just needed a year off. Which was perfect, because last year at this time was the nor’easter, so it would have been a bust. But now our energies are recharged and we’re back.”

The seasonal attraction, winding through 15 spooky rooms within and outside the church, sees 500-1,000 attendees annually. All proceeds go toward North Haven’s food pantry or Faith United’s outreach programs. For families with younger children, too little perhaps for a scare, the event includes an onsite Halloween party on Saturday.

NHFD parade DVD available The North Haven Camera Club recently presented Fire Chief Vincent Landisio a DVD to commemorate the North Haven Fire Department’s 100th anniversary. The DVD contains highlights of the 129th CT Sate Firefighter’s Association Convention and parade hosted by the North Haven Fire Department in September. The DVD includes 177 colored slides with music and runs 11 minutes and 38 seconds. It features highlights of the convention at North Haven High School and activities at the fairgrounds. The DVD is available for purchase. For more information and cost, contact Rich Ziemba (203) 494-3002 or

“In today’s age, we’re providing a safe place for families to come for some fun,” Bogert said. “The younger kids can stay at the party, while the parents and the older kids can go through the haunted house.” The main attraction includes numerous actors and hundreds of props, ghoulish items amassed during the decades. “The theme this year, as in the past, is that you are trespassing in the master’s castle,” Bogert said. “And the master doesn’t take too kindly to that. So he locks you in with him. And then you’re wandering around his castle, trying to find your way out.” Many favorite rooms from past editions of the haunted house are back, such as the crazy clown room, the master’s bedroom and the mad

scientist’s lab. Several new additions should startle even attendees familiar with the 26-year event. “One reason I think people keep coming back to this is because this is about oldtimey scares,” Bogert said. “A lot of haunted houses today have lots of high-tech gadgetry. Not that we don’t have our sensors, laser lights and spring-loaded surprises, but for the most part we’re about old-fashioned scares, people hiding around corners and popping out at you.” “Also, we have a story unfolding in the haunted house from beginning to end,” he added. “There’s a theme to all the rooms and scenes. More haunted houses today have a hodgepodge of different scenes.”

34th District candidates get endorsements By Laurie Rich Salerno Special to The Citizen

Republican state Sen. Len Fasano has received the endorsement of the state’s Independent Party, and will be listed as its candidate on the November ballot as well as the Republican candidate. The longtime incumbent is running against former state Rep. Steve Fontana, a Democrat, to retain his seat in the 34th District, which includes North Haven. Fasano said he felt the Independent Party chose him because he says he does not vote simply on the party line. “I vote for a good idea when it’s a good idea,” Fasano said Thursday. This is the first time in recent memory there will be an Independent line on the ballot in the 34th District. Fasano had to get a petition signed by 1 percent of registered voters in the district in order to get the ballot line approved. Robert Fand, the party’s

deputy director and secretary, said the party chose Fasano because they believed his goals were in line with theirs. “We run on issues - we feel that the Republicans are closest to our issues,” Fand said, saying the party is concerned with over-taxation, overregulation, unfair trade policies, and illegal immigration. Fontana said he wasn’t surprised Fasano received the endorsement, saying the Independent Party is wellknown as a conservative group. “It’s really nothing more than a second line for Republicans,” Fontana said. Linda McMahon, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, will also be on the Independent line. The choice means that Fasano will be listed on the ballot twice, and Fontana only once. Neither candidate will be receiving the endorsement of the Working Families Party, the state’s other prominent

non-mainstream party. Fasano had received their support in the past, as had Fontana in his state House races. “The Working Families Party decided not to file an endorsement in the 34th Senate District because both Steve Fontana and Len Fasano are committed to the values the Working Families Party stand for. We look forward to working with whoever wins the race,” said Lindsay Farrell, executive director of the Connecticut Working Families Party, by email last week. Fasano said he understood the group’s position. “They’re taking a neutral position — that’s fine with me,” Fasano said. “I understand that they don’t want to pick between two people that have recognized their issues.” As for other endorsements, Fontana said he has gotten endorsements from the state chapter of the American Federation of Teachers and the Sierra

Club. “I’ve always taken pride in supporting the environment,” Fontana said. Fasano said he has received the endorsement of the Connecticut Uniformed Professional Fire Fighters Association, and the Connecticut Education Association, one of the state’s major teachers unions. “I fought hard for the teachers and the parents

As a majority of the haunted house is within the church’s buildings or under tents outside, the event is rain or shine. Construction commences three weeks in advance. Special care is taken to avoid building in the church’s sanctuary. “We get asked all the time about being a church putting

on a haunted house,” Bogert said. “The Halloween we’re celebrating is that of kids, candy and costumes, plus a little bit of a scare. What it comes down to is providing a fun, safe place for families.” “Also, here you don’t have to wait four hours to get into the attraction,” he added. The Halloween party on Saturday, Oct. 27, includes crafts, snacks and Halloween games. Attending kids are encouraged to come in cos-

tumes. Admission to the haunted house includes a ticket to the party. Individual tickets to the party are also available. “The party has always been a nice compliment to this,” Bogert said. Bogert estimated walking through the haunted house to take 20 minutes. Tickets are available onsite. For more information, call (203) 239-2469 or search “Haunted Hollows of North Haven” on Facebook.

A history in Halloween By Paul Colella Special to The Citizen

It’s almost All Hallows Eve, the night when children and adults dress up to scare off the evil spirits that would come on Halloween. Colella Of course, today, the holiday is all about the candy, costumes, and trick-or-treating. The word Halloween was first used in the 16th century and represents a Scottish variant of the fuller All-Hallows-even (“evening�), that is the night before All Hallows Eve. It is a yearly holiday observed around the world on October 31, the eve before the Western Christian feast of All Hallows, the evening before All Saints Day celebrated on November 1. According to some schol-

ars, All Hallows Eve initially incorporated traditions from pagan harvest festivals and festivals honoring the dead, particularly the Celtic Samhain. Other scholars maintain that the feast originated entirely independently from Samhain. The purposes of Halloween were originally to mark the end of summer and the harvest, and the beginning of winter, and to commemorate the passing of the dead. Typical contemporary Halloween activities include trick-or-treating also known as “guising,� attending costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting “haunted� attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films. Haunted houses and other spooky attractions are entertainment venues designed to thrill and scare patrons. Most attractions are seasonal Halloween businesses. Origins of these the-

atrical, for-profit venues are difficult to pinpoint. But it is generally accepted that they were first commonly used by the Junior Chamber International (Jaycees) for fundraising. They include haunted houses, corn mazes, and hay rides, and the level of sophistication of the effects has risen as the industry has grown, especially with the telling of ghost stories, the writing of horror stories, and the viewing of horror films. Episodes of television series and Halloween-themed specials are commonly aired on or before the holiday, while new horror films are often released in theaters before the holiday to take advantage of the seasonal atmosphere. Dressing up in costumes and going “guising� were prevalent in Ireland and Scotland at Halloween by the late-19th century. Costuming became popular for Halloween parties in the United States in the early 20th century. The first mass-

produced Halloween costumes appeared in stores in the 1930s when trick-ortreating was becoming popular in the United States. Halloween costumes are traditionally modeled after supernatural figures as monsters, ghosts, skeletons, witches and devils. Over time, the costume selection extended to include popular

characters from fiction, celebrities, and generic archetypes such as ninjas, superheroes, and princesses. Since the holiday comes in the wake of the annual apple harvest, candy apples, caramel and taffy apples are common Halloween treats. In Great Britain, Ireland and

Camp Rising Sun

In mid-October, Amanda Altieri, a guest of North Haven Rotary PresidentElect Debbie Volain and Past President Rick DiNorscia, expressed her sincere gratitude to the members of the North Haven Rotary Club for their donation to Camp Rising Sun. She described the camp as “an American Cancer Society program that gives children aged 5-17 an opportunity to experience an overnight camping experience and to remember what it is like to have fun.” She explained that every August, over 100 children (with cancer or in remission) gather at Camp Jewell YMCA in Colebrook, with most of the kids and parents

in tears at the thought of the week’s separation. After a week in a joy-filled atmosphere, and having developed new friendships, they almost don’t want to go home. Saying that she personally learned to “realize the importance of hope,” Amanda stated that “it was the dying wish of one young girl to be able to attend the camp,” one of first children that she has counseled over the past eight years. The staff of volunteers, most of whom are cancer survivors, provides the experience at no cost to the family, but the expense can run more than $1500 per child and is covered by donations, fund raisers, and corporate

sponsors. Now in the camp’s 30th year of operation, the medical staff has been headed by Medical Director Dr. Joseph McNamara, a pediatric oncologist from YaleNew Haven Hospital, for 20 years. For more information, go to www.camprisingsun. com. Text and photo courtesy of David Marchesseault, Rotary PR Chairman

100 years of fire service

The North Haven Historical Society has scheduled a program on the history of the North Haven Fire Department for Sunday, Oct. 28 at 2 p.m. at the Masonic Lodge, 30 Church St. This year, the Fire Department is celebrating 100 years of service to the town, and the Historical Society is honored to participate in recognizing these dedicated public servants. The program is free and open to the public. Parking is available on site, and the building is handicapped-accessible. Light refreshments will be available. The following is taken from a history of the fire de-

partment published on their 75th anniversary: In 1911, the North Haven Congregational Church caught fire and burned because there was no local fire department to douse the flames. Shortly thereafter, a group of concerned citizens gathered to organize the North Haven Volunteer Fire Company #1. The volunteers built a garage on Peck Street (recently demolished) to serve as our town’s first firehouse. Their firefighting equipment included a hose reel which was pulled by manpower. The firefighters were led by Foreman Arthur

Thorpe, a title that persisted until 1928 when the organization adopted the title of Chief for its leadership. It has remained so ever since. In 1932, locals recognized that more equipment was needed for fighting fires. The town also needed a meeting hall – thus, the firehouse at 26 Broadway was built. It was a large and handsome building with a spacious meeting hall on an upper level. The Center Volunteer Fire Company operated for many years from this station. The following year saw the completion of the Montowese firehouse on Quinnipiac Avenue. It oper-

ates to this day, although plans have been made to demolish this building as well, in preparation for a new Montowese firehouse. By the early 1950s, both North Haven and Hamden were growing rapidly, and Hamden could no longer provide protection to the west side of town. In response to this need, the West Ridge Volunteer Fire Company was formed, and opened on Ridge Road in 1951. Continued growth in the north end of town resulted in the formation of the

North East Volunteer Fire Association in 1959, and by 1960 a new fire station was located on northern Washington Avenue. In 1967, seven volunteer firefighters were hired by the town to become its first career firefighters operating as the Headquarters Company. This was followed in 1972 by the construction of the new Fire Headquarters at 11 Broadway, where it remains today. Submitted by Susan Iverson, North Haven Historical Society.

Most critical

To the editor: This election is the most critical of my lifetime. We will be deciding if this country remains a Republic that follows the Constitution and the Rule of Law, or becomes a nation of people who rely on the government rather than ourselves. Decades of turning our backs on too many things going wrong have brought us to this. Rely on your intellect, not your emotions, when you decide. We no longer have luxury of casting a “feel-good vote.” Veronica Hamel Kivela North Haven


To the editor: As a longtime member of the Silver Sands Beach and Tennis Club in East Haven, and as a resident of North Haven, I have gotten to know Len Fasano. As the owner of

Silver Sands, Len makes it a priority to hire locals at the club. He helps charitable organizations with use of the club, donates memberships and guest passes as raffle prizes to many local fundraisers. We need someone like Len in Hartford who is mindful of his community and has the best interests of East Haven, North Haven, Wallingford and their residents as one of his top priorities.

Commentary An Ounce of Prevention

Is your supplement worth the cost? By V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH

The definition of a dietary supplement according to the 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act is as follows: A dietary supplement is intended to support the diet; contains one or more dietary ingredients (such as vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids or other botanicals); is taken by mouth; and is labeled as a supplement. If the national statistics are true, at least half of readers of this column use some form of a dietary supplement. How much do you actually know about the supplements that you take? Are they safe and effective? If you only rely on information that you get from advertisements or health magazines that are supported by vitamin/supplement companies, you may be wasting your money — or worse, endangering your health. Before you take any dietary supplement, you need to do your homework and understand what you are taking, what the supplement is supposed to do and what might interact with the supplement. An excellent source for information about com-

mon supplements (and/or the elements of substances) is the National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine, which is part of the National Institutes of Health. Its website is The following information, taken from this website, is important facts you should know about dietary supplements: — Federal regulations for dietary supplements are different from the regulations governing prescription and over-the-counter drugs. The Food and Drug Administration is responsible for monitoring supplements after they have come to the marketplace. In general, the regulations for supplements are less strict. — A manufacturer is permitted to say that a dietary supplement addresses a nutrient deficiency, supports health, or is linked to a particular body function (such as immunity), if there is research to support the claim. Such a claim must be fol-

lowed by the words “This statement has not been evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.” — Manufacturers do not have to prove the safety and effectiveness of a supplement before it is marketed. The monitoring of the product by the FDA comes after it is on the shelves for the consumer. The Federal Trade Commission is responsible for monitoring advertisement of the product. If the product is found to be unsafe or if the advertising has false claims, the supplement can be pulled from the marketplace. — You must watch for interactions with other supplements or medications that you take. — You should always tell your primary care provider about all the supplements you take. Over time, with scientific research, some supplements have been shown to be effective in preventing or treating a disease. Folic acid (a vitamin) has been shown to decrease certain birth defects. Vitamin and zinc preparations have been shown to slow the progression of mac-

ular degeneration (an eye disease.) Other supplements like Omega-3 fatty acids look promising. But for most supplements, more research is needed to “prove” effectiveness. Most supplements are harmless. However, while they may not harm you, they may not be helping you either. This may add an unnecessary expense to your budget. It is crucial, however, if you have a particular health problem, that you let your primary care provider know about all the dietary supplements that you take. In some instances, a supplement may cause you harm. (For example, extra potassium and kidney disease can be a dangerous combination.) The NCCAM warns that it is especially important to talk to your health care provider if you are: — Thinking about replacing your regular medication with one-or-more dietary supplements. — Taking any medications (whether prescription or over-the-counter), as some dietary supplements have been found to interact with medications. — Planning to have surgery. Certain dietary supple-

ments may increase the risk of bleeding or affect the response to anesthesia. — Pregnant or nursing a baby, or are considering giving a child a dietary supplement. Most dietary supplements have not been tested in pregnant women, nursing mothers, or children. The primary responsibility for supplement use safety falls on you, the consumer. Do your homework before you take a supplement. Another source of information about supplements is the FDA publication Dietary Supplements: What You Need to Know. If you do have a reaction to a supplement or suspect something is wrong with a supplement, you can contact the FDA MedWatch program, 1-888-463-6332 or 1-800332-1088.

Portal to the past By Kyle Swartz The historical story depicted at the Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum in Hamden is an elucidating look into a country’s past struggles — with contemporary undertones. Located at 3011 Whitney Avenue, the new museum grew off from an original room within Quinnipiac University’s library, which had been setup as an exhibit on Ireland’s mid-19thcentury, generation-defining potato famine. Quinnipiac President and second-generation Irish-

American John Lahey, plus bagel magnate Murray Lender, had been amassing artwork and research materials on the subject since 2000. Together they built a moving collection which has much to tell viewers. Ireland’s potato famine, also known as the Great Hunger, occurred between 1845 and 1852, causing widespread food shortage across the country. During these lean years, it’s estimated that one million citizens died. Two million more immigrated to America (where their ancestors number around 40 million

today). Ireland’s population essentially was halved. In terms of population redistribution, this was an extremely significant event. It led to an influx of one nationality into the United States, playing a big role in the country’s rise to global power in the 20th century. But the museum also appropriately captures darker elements to this tale: for those who chose to remain behind, the human mortality and suffering, a legacy difficult to face. Lahey aptly compared continuing discomfort experienced by

the Irish when considering the Great Hunger to victims of assault who blame themselves for not doing more to prevent their personal tragedy. Like these analogous victims, though, Ireland has nothing for which to feel ashamed. It’s not what leads to calamity that ultimately defines us, but how we progress from misfortune. While Ireland underwent further anguish in centuries ahead, the country’s ongoing resiliency, and undeniable role in shaping modern America, both should be sources of

immense pride. Hamden’s Great Hunger Museum is an important portal to the past, opportunity to zip back through decades into an era when one country’s future hung in the balance. With the opening of this facility last week, it’s well worth a visit to understand better a previous, tumultuous time period which emanates cultural and socioeconomic present day implications.

Immunization program

Over 18,000 cases of pertussis have been reported to the Centers for Disease Control this year. The disease is also known as whooping cough, which is on the rise in many states, including Connecticut. Pertussis is particularly severe for infants, who are not fully protected against this terrible cough until they are one year old. The Quinnipiack Valley Health District offers the pertussis vaccine (in the form of Tdap-tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) to parents, grandparents, babysitters and other caregivers or contacts of newborns and infants 12 months and younger. If you are over age 18 and have never had a Tdap vaccine, (a combined booster immunization containing tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis protection) you are eligible to receive this vaccine. An administration fee is requested. No one will be turned away for lack of ability to pay this fee. Immunization clinics are held every 4-6 weeks. For more information, clinic dates and times, call QVHD at (203) 248-4528 or visit

The North Haven Citizen — Friday, October 26, 2012 parties, while other practices in Ireland include lighting bonfires and having firework displays. Mass transatlantic immigration in the 19th century popularized Halloween in North America, and celebration in the United States and Canada has had a significant impact on how the event is observed in other nations like Australia, South America, New Zealand, Europe, Japan, and other parts of East Asia. Development of Halloween artifacts and symbols formed over time. For instance, the carving of jack-o-lanterns comes from the Samhein custom of carving turnips into lanterns as a way of remembering the dead in purgatory. The

turnip has been used in Ireland and Scotland, but immigrants to North America used the native pumpkin, which is both much softer and much larger — making it easier to carve than a turnip. The American tradition of carving pumpkins began in 1837. The imaging of Halloween is derived from many sources including national customs, works of Gothic and horror classic literature such as novels Frankenstein and Dracula and classic horror films such as Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy, The Werewolf, and The Creature from the Black Lagoon starring Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee, Claude Raines, Boris Karloff, Elsa Lancaster, and

Jeanette MacDonald. Elements of the autumn season, such as pumpkins, corn husks and scarecrows, are also prevalent. Homes are often decorated with these types of symbols around Halloween. Halloween imagery includes themes of death, evil, mythical monsters, and the occult. Black and orange are the traditional colors. Since the first decade of the 20th century, Halloween has been celebrated in the United States from coast to coast by people of all social, racial, and religious backgrounds. On Halloween, some people keep with the original practice of prayer,

Indians drub Sheehan, prepare for Hand Kevin Pataky and Toby Carmody Special to The Citizen North Haven High School’s Jalon White scored on a six-yard run at the 4:03 mark of the first quarter in Saturday night’s SCC Divisional matchup between the Indians and Wallingford’s Sheehan High School. Unfortunately for the Titans, White made a habit out of finding the end zone at Sheehan’s Riccitelli Field. The senior running back scored three times and rushed for a game-high 128 yards on 15 carries as the Indians defeated the Titans 427. “They’re kind of banged up, Sheehan, and a young team, too,” said NHHS varsity football head coach Anthony Sagnella.

Besides his touchdown in the first quarter, White scored at 5:56 of the second quarter and 5:45 of the third on runs of four and 10 yards, respectively. “Every year, somebody emerges who becomes statistically noticeable, and more importantly, becomes a huge role in the offense,” Sagnella said. “Jalon has been that guy this year. Jalon has been a piece of the puzzle for so many years, but now he is the puzzle.” “Fortunately, we have other kids who are capable of contributing. But Jalon is the guy who gets us out of jams,” the coach continued. “He turns losses into gains. He has the capability, which is rare. Not every kid has it. We’re fortunate to have him.” Indian Quincy Pecora

found the end zone at the 9:00 mark of the second quarter on an eight-yard scamper. Patrick Mikos returned a Sheehan fumble 21 yards with just over two minutes remaining in the first half to push the Indian advantage to 28-0. “When you go into the locker room at halftime with a lead like that, you tell the kids to keep playing hard,” Sagnella said. “You tell them to finish the game, to play until you take the other team out.” Cole Pecora added a touchdown late in the fourth quarter for the Indians from nine yards out. Sheehan’s lone score of the night came with 1:32 left in the third quarter when Kyle Paolella scored on a 31-yard run. With a large lead in the second half, Sagnella sent into the game many fresh uniforms from the bench. “I’m pretty sure we got just about everybody in,” Sagnella said. “We’re always developing See Football, page 19

Indians compile 3-1 record in week nine By Ed Tantorski Special to The Citizen

North Haven Youth Football went 3-1 in week nine action. The North Haven eighthgraders (6-1-1) concluded the regular season with a victory over Old Saybrook/Westbrook, 34-16. Bowen Brennan began the scoring on a 41-yard touchdown run. Colin Finkle (4-4) added the 2-point kick to make it 8-0. Jack Styeinman connected to Kyle Melillo on a 12-yard pass to make it 16-0 in the first quarter. John Rielly, Dan Halloran and Brennan then had a defensive safety to make it 18-0. Billy Sgro returned a secondhalf kickoff 82 yards and the Indians were up 26-0. Steinman connected with Max Sullivan on a 55-yard touch-

down pass to close out the Indians scoring. CJ Somma and Brennan both added interceptions. Jake Tantorski, Kyle Duby, Brandon Ellis, Dustin Byrnes and Larissa Amaker all had key tackles on defense. The Indians will take on North Branford next Sunday in the opening round of the playoffs at Vanacore Field. North Haven’s sixth-grade squad defeated North Branford, 37-18. Alex Ciaburro scored first on a 60-yard run. Noah Pastore scored on a 55yard pass from Shamus Meehan. Meehan also scored on an 8-yard run, as did Anthony Bello. Jack Paruso also scored on a 20-yard run. Michael Collins and Vinny Depalma also ran well. The defense was led by Noah Pastor, Devan Brockamer, Aiden

Lillis, Arron Bell and Lou Mineri. North Haven’s fifth-grade team improved their record to 8-0, an undefeated regular season. The fifth grade team won Sunday against Branford, 26-7. North Haven started the game with a great offensive ground attack. Max Rivera and Joe Urtel moved the Indians down the field to set up one of Joe Wenzels’ touchdowns from two yards out. The Maroon and White defense came out on the field and played hard, not allowing one first down in the whole first half. Jeffrey Williston, Joe Vitale and Wenzel played the linebacker position and came up with great tackles for losses the whole game. Wenzel added a touchdown in the second quarter to put

North Haven up 12-0 before half time. The Indians kicked off to start the second half of the game and Jaden Watson recovered the ball. Ethan Okwuosa then scored a touchdown on the first play, going 50 yards for the score. Joe Ranciato, Kyle Maruca, Luke Maruca, Jesse Lake, Al Piscitelli, Chris Hansen and Donny McInnis all had great plays on defense and only allowed Branford to one first down in the second half of the game. After playing great defense, Noah Perillie and Jack Priebe ran the ball on offense and helped North Haven control the offense. The last score came from Watson from 34 yards out and Jeff Williston added the extra point.

Friday, October 26, 2012 — The North Haven Citizen

Fontana Continued from page 1

Fasano Continued from page 1 Connecticut has been noted as the worst place for people to retire; the state has one of the highest unfunded pension liabilities, one of the most unfriendly business climates and is one of the most expensive states to live in. Clearly, this is the wrong path for the State of Connecticut. As a husband and father of three children and for the future of Connecticut, we need to change the direction of the state. I would like my children to live in Connecticut and one day raise their families here, but that is becoming an unattainable goal. Working families across this state are finding it difficult to find a job and pay their bills. The burden facing every working family is heavy. And we need to reduce those burdens by lowering taxes, creating jobs and improving the economic health of this state by helping our middleclass. I will be that person in Hartford, who will continue to fight against higher taxes and stop the unnecessary spending. We need to chart a new course that makes our small businesses thrive. This will strengthen our economy and bring jobs to Connecticut. The bipartisan jobs bill, which I was happy to be a part of as a Republican working with Democrats and the Governor’s Office, was a good start, but we need to go further. Rather than giving $115 million to a multi-billion dollar hedge fund to move from Westport to Stamford, or giving $300 million to an out of state company, Jackson Labs, on a hope and a prayer that they will create 300 jobs in Connecticut by the 10th year, we should be doing the following: Use the tax credits to entice businesses to invest in themselves by buying new machinery or increasing the size of their operation. See that that money should also be invested in our tech schools to prepare them for existing high-tech manufacturing jobs in Connecticut. Low interest rate loans

through our community banks, who understand our local communities, to small businesses. That is investing our money in a manner that has a direct positive effect upon our economy by creating jobs, reducing unemployment and encouraging investments in Connecticut. We need to have consistency in our tax policy and regulations. Our current tax policies have lead to uncertainty in the business community. Finally, we need to make it affordable to live in this state. We need to eliminate the unfunded state mandates upon our municipalities that increase our property taxes. These bureaucratic mandates by the state have made it more difficult for working families to reside in Connecticut. This elimination alone could

have a significant decrease on our local property taxes. In addition, we need to roll back the state sales tax, eliminating taxes on nonprescription drugs and clothing under $50 -- this will put more money back into the pockets of working families. We need to help families who struggle day to day. As a lifelong resident of Connecticut and a smallbusiness owner, I am concerned about the future of our state. It’s time to travel down a road where ideas are generated in a bipartisan fashion through compromise and leadership. Incumbent Senator Len Fasano, Republican, is a candidate for reelection to Connecticut’s 34th senatorial district, which represents the towns of North Haven, East Haven, Durham and Wallingford.


necticut right now,” Sagnella said. “We’re excited about it. It will require a great effort from our entire team.” “This is the direction we want to head,” he added. “We’re trying to compete at that level. And there’s nothing better for that than getting on the field with Hand.” Against Sheehan, NHHS kicker Sam Biller was a perfect 6-for-6 on extra point kicks. Information from a RecordJournal article was used in this piece. Citizen editor Kyle Swartz contributed to this article.

This way, the younger guys got a chance to run the ball at the speed of the varsity game.” North Haven’s record now stands at 4-2, with a big game against top-ranked Daniel Hand coming up this Friday at home. “It’s a big stage for us, a great opportunity for us to play the best team in Con-

Here is my plan to start rebuilding the middleclass: 1. Make higher education more affordable: For many young people, joining the middleclass, or simply remaining in it, means being able to go to college. Unfortunately, skyrocketing costs, stagnant financial aid, and mounting debt are making it harder for them to pay for it. We can make college more affordable by ensuring that every student has access to: (1) cooperative-education programs that combine classroom study with realworld experience; (2) threeyear degrees that allow students to get their careers going more quickly; (3) online instruction that gives students more convenient classroom learning options; (4) college credit for knowledge and skills that students receive in nontraditional settings; (5) free or low-cost textbooks that reduce classroom expenses; (6) more spots in our state university system; and (7) college-business partnerships that connect students to companies with jobs. 2. Promote small-business job growth and rein in energy and healthcare costs: The keys to getting people back to work are: (A) stimulating demand by getting more discretionary income into consumers’ hands; (B) channeling capital to entrepreneurs, small businesses, and companies in emerging industries that will create goodpaying jobs with benefits here in Connecticut; and (C) pursuing common-sense initiatives that will save everyone money, encourage more investment and foster sustainable economic growth. We can get our economy going again if we: (1) reduce healthcare costs for small businesses by giving them access to the state health plan and developing better illness management; (2) reduce energy costs by having the state negotiate lower rates for all electric utility customers, and by allowing utilities to generate electricity competitively again; (3) establish a public-private infrastructure bank to invest

in critical projects; (4) end wasteful corporate tax breaks, and “claw back” state aid from companies that ship jobs out of state or overseas; (5) help lower-income families make ends meet by indexing the minimum wage to inflation; and (6) help people refinance their mortgage at a lower interest rate. 3. Support family life and healthy communities: From buying a home to paying for college tuitions, hardworking parents are struggling to manage large amounts of debt, job insecurity, and, sometimes, health care issues. They want someone to make sure that their kids get the best education possible, and that help will be there for their family if they ever need it. We can make it easier for them to focus on raising their family if we: (1) modernize aging school buildings; (2) allocate state education funding more equitably by requiring that the state’s education formula uses the most accurate, up-to-date information; and (3) improve insurance coverage for children who need expensive medical care. 4. Ensure seniors a more secure retirement: Families nearing retirement, and senior citizens already in retirement, rightly believe that being part of the middle class means being able to save enough money to retire, and then being able to afford to live on a fixed income once they retire. We can improve seniors’ retirement security if we: (1) protect our current senior safety net from people who want to cut it; (2) pursue opportunities to reduce seniors’ energy and prescription drug costs; (3) promote senior-friendly affordable housing; and (4) develop portable retirement accounts to help working families save for retirement.

Ghosts Continued from page 1 and wife, Shefts added, allegedly was violent. Among the more chilling photos shown to audience members by NPIS representatives, an image of the lighthouse at night appeared to show a ghostly man and small child staring out a rear window. Other evidence included white and grey mists, and erratically moving white orbs, both detectable only on film. NPIS investigators believed the two to be detectable mani-

festations of spiritual presences. “All of us have auras around us,” Firulli said. “In theory, who’s to say that our auras are not still attached to us in the afterlife?” Voices of spirits, Shefts suggested, talk twice as fast as the living’s voices. Numerous sound clips — recorded at places of alleged supernatural happenings — replayed for attendees seemed to contain swiftly uttered messages. These statements, Shefts said, were not made by anyone in the room at the time of recording. “All this is evidence we

gathered,” Shefts said. “We didn’t create any of this.” Among recordings presented by NPIS as possibly spiritual were incomprehensible whisperings, presences saying “help me” or “leave” and another using curse words at Firulli. “People always ask us to play that one back for them a lot of times,” Shefts said of the latter with a smile. The formal program culminated in a video in which investigators, at the Shanley Hotel in Napanoch, New York, politely asked a spirit to turn on a flashlight left un-

TOWN OF NORTH HAVEN ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS NOTICE OF DECISION Please take notice that the following decisions were rendered by the North Haven Zoning Board of Appeals on Thursday, October 18, 2012 at the Mildred A. Wakeley Community and Recreation Center, 7 Linsley Street, in Room #2 at 7:30 PM.

Continued from page 21 touched on a bed. In the video, the flash light turns on without anyone touching it, and then moments later turns off after NPIS examiners requested that the spirit do so. “We’d heard that the flashlight thing worked there, so we tried it out,” Firulli said. “What we showed you was our first time trying it. After that, the bulb burned out. The bulb no longer worked. It was a new bulb.” Shefts has been behind NPIS for about eight years, ever since he took a curiosity in the subject matter to the next level. “I followed my curiosity. I wanted to know what there was to be afraid of,” he said. “A lot of people are afraid of ghosts. I don’t know why. There’s nothing to be afraid of.” “All this is is history connecting with the present,” he added. “That’s all.” Throughout the two-hour function, NPIS members engaged attendees and asked their opinions about videos, pictures and recordings. Audience member, North Haven resident and believer in the supernatural Patty Gianotti thought NPIS brought convincing materials. “I think this could prove a lot to people out there who are skeptics,” she said. “I’ve had experiences with the supernatural. My house in North Haven is over 100 years old.” Kathy Pierce, of East Haven, also enjoyed the evening, but was not as com-
