Murder case with North Haven link continued By Lauren Sellew Record-Journal staff

NEW BRITAIN — A man charged in connection with the 2017 murder of a 25year-old hotel clerk appeared in New Britain Superior Court last week.

of a high-capacity magazine. He is accused in the shooting death of Pratikkumar Jagani, who was found dead at the Days Inn, 2387 Berlin Turnpike, around 2:30 a.m. on July 2, 2017. Jagani, of Berlin, was the night clerk at the hotel.

Connecticut urges Washington to follow its lead in gun laws By Susan Haigh Associated Press

HARTFORD — Connecticut politicians and gun control advocates on Monday urged the U.S. Senate to return immediately to Washington, D.C., and follow the state’s lead in passing stricter gun laws, including some with bipartisan support. Frustrated by news of more mass shootings since the 2012 attack at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, many at a state Capitol rally said Connecticut has managed to pass legislation since that tragedy that could be replicated in other states

and nationwide. That includes an expanded ban on assault rifles and large-capacity magazines and enhanced background checks. More recently, the Connecticut General Assembly enacted legislation limiting domestic abusers’ access to guns, banning bump stocks and requiring new gun storage rules. “This can be done in Congress, with the right amount of courage,” said Jeremy Stein, executive director of the group Connecticut Against Gun Violence, told a crowd of about See Guns, A11

Father and son dentists consolidate practices By Everett Bishop The Citizen

After years of practicing at separate locations, father/ son duo Dr. Joseph Gargano and Dr. Ted Gargano, consolidated Gargano Family Dentistry to one main location at 21 Washington Ave. The change came about last year, with Oct. 2 being their “first operational day” according to Dr. Ted. Dr. Joseph opened up the family’s first office on Elm Street. After graduating from the University of Connecticut in 2015, Dr. Ted operated the family’s second practice, on St. John Street. “I have a flashbulb memory of being on the bus when I was a kid, I think it was fifth grade. It was this weird moment where I was like ‘You know what? I want to do dentistry.’ That was the first real memory I have of wanting to be a dentist,” said Dr. Ted.

“They have been a firm dentistry that’s been here in town for quite some time,” he said. “I was delighted to see they kept the architectural charm of the building that had been there for decades on Washington Avenue, that back in the ‘40s and ‘50s was a residential home.” Freda said that when he went on a walk-through of the building, he was struck by how the practice had managed to “blend the past with the present” when renovating. Moving forward, Dr. Ted said he wants to see the practice grow into something “manageable,” and his own.

With advancements in dental technology, Dr. Ted wants to be on the cutting edge of dental science and is looking to “push the envelope” when it comes to adopting new tools and procedures. However, Dr. Ted indicated that being a good dentist goes beyond just physical tools. “You will get that patient who’s extremely afraid, but they come because they have a problem and they recognize that problem. I have to get that person to a point where I can do what they are literally most afraid of and make them feel comfortable.” he said. “When I’m able to do that, that is incredibly rewarding to me.”

From that moment on, he said that it was “always the plan” to join his father’s practice and eventually take it over.

The Gargano family has been a part of the North Haven community for decades. Though Dr. Ted grew up with his family in Branford, Dr. Joseph has been practicing dentistry in North Haven for almost 40 years.

her fun side.

There is an exception to the 5 percent cap for any PEG channels that are “required” by municipalities. However, the order is vague on what they define “required” as. “It’s so obtuse that it’s hard to know what the effects will be,” said Susan Huizenga, executive director for Wallingford’s WPAA. “What the FCC is saying is, people who represent local governments, whose rights of way are being used, are ‘bad actors.’” Mann believes that NHTV’s PEG channels “would be exempt” but also recognizes that there is “a lack of clarity at this point.” “On the one hand, if cable television companies are using public rights of way, they need to pay for it,” said Mann. “However, some towns have been making egregious demands like asking them to fund parades.” If North Haven’s franchise fees are capped at 5 percent, Freda is already planning on how to continue funding production across the town’s three PEG channels.

“We will quickly determine what the total dollars will be and then we will look to continue to support NHTV to ensure that there’s no adverse effect on filming the meetings, that everything continues seamless,” he said. “We will deal with the complexity of floating the funding to keep NHTV in operation.” Freda said that the town “will find the funding” without raising taxes and will be sure to include funding NHTV in next year’s budget. “From a former CEO of a billion dollar company, now as a government leader, I see this on both sides,” said Freda. “There’s nobody on the corporate side that’s going to tell me that out of hundreds of channels that these cable companies have, that three channels are going to make a difference to them.”

McDonald told police he checked in to the hotel in Berlin to get away from Waterbury and people who wanted to harm him, the warrant said. McDonald said when he went up to Jagani there were two children at the front desk, so he told them to go back to their room because he believed a “shootout” was going to take place, the warrant said. McDonald said once the children left, he asked Jagani to call 911, but Jagani refused.

Richard Blumenthal used the event to urge Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to call the Senate back from its August recess and pass several gun safety measures that have already cleared the U.S. House of Representatives. “Senator McConnell, lead or get out of the way.

In El Paso, Texas, 22 people were killed in a shooting at a packed shopping center, and nine died in an unrelated shooting in a nightclub district Dayton, Ohio. Connecticut Senate Republican Leader Len Fasano said he and Democratic legislative leaders were not notified about the rally until late Sunday. He took issue with the partisan tone of some Democrats there, reminding them that Connecticut has “shown what can be accomplished when you put politics aside and work together to negotiate real solutions.”


While Stewart enjoyed seeing his project completed, he said seeing everyone come together to help with construction was even more rewarding.

Dog From A10

cool themselves is by panting, which evaporates moisture from the upper respiratory tract. A hot car makes for very poor evaporation conditions, causing your dog’s body temperature to increase rapidly, which leads to heat stroke and brain damage in a very short time. Democratic candidates for North Haven municipal offices, North Haven Democratic Town Committee members, family and friends gathered recently at the home of Police Commissioner Marc Calafiore for a social gathering and meet-and-greet. Candidates and DTC members pictured are: Joe Cappucci (recently-elected Constable), Danielle Morfi (candidate for Board of Assessment Appeals), Frederick Rodriguez (candidate for Board of Education), Sally Buemi (candidate for Selectman), Kenneth Quick (candidate for Zoning Board of Appeals alternate), Jennie Caldwell (candidate for Fire Commission), Kathy Spinato-Grant (candidate for Town Clerk), Nancy Barrett (candidate for Board of Finance), Scott Leamon (recently-elected Constable), Jennifer Ceccarelli (candidate for Board of Education) and Marc Calafiore (candidate for Police Commission). For more information about the DTC and the candidates, visit

In Connecticut, under certain circumstances, people can be charged with animal cruelty for leaving their pet in a parked vehicle in adverse weather. If you see a dog in a car on a hot day, the Humane Society advises you to record the car’s


make, model and license plate number, try to alert the owner by asking nearby businesses to make an announcement, and call animal control or the police’s non-emergency number. Stay with the dog if you can until help arrives. The term “dog days” of summer originated with the Greeks, and referred to the time when Sirius, the dog star, rose before the sun. This usually happened during the hottest time of the year. It has come to mean days that are so hot, even dogs don’t want to do much but lie around. So, remember to take this advice – “Sirius-ly” – and never leave your dog in the car in the summer heat, for any length of time.
