Get those leaves bagged and out....
Residents are asked to have leaves and brush at curb by this date to ensure pick-up.
Leaves must be placed in paper bags and brush must be bundled and tied with string or
twine. Bundles should weigh no more than 50 lbs, exceed no more than four feet in length and
contain no pieces in excess of four inches diameter. Bundled brush and bagged leaves should be
placed at the curb, separate of each other, and away from trash and recycling, Cesare said.
Leaves cannot be picked up from private roads or from roads that have not been accepted into the
town road system. Residents on unaccepted and private roads may bring leaves to the Transfer
Station during normal hours, weekdays from 7:30 am to 3 p.m. as well as the 1st and
3rd Saturdays of the month from 8 to 11:45 a.m.

Veterans' Day in Hamden, Ceremony Sunday
Monday, November 7, 2011
Now it's time to vote....And please remember to
If you're wondering where to vote, the North Haven locations are: District 1, recreation center, Linsley St.; District 2, Montowese School; District 3, Ridge Road School; District 4, Green Acres School and District 5, Clintonville School.
Hamden's polling places are: District 1, Miller Library; District 2, Helen Street School; District 3, M.L. Keefe Community Center; District 4, Spring Glen School; District 5, Board of Education Building (60 Putnam Ave.); District 6, Ridge Hill School; District 7, Dunbar Hill School; District 8, Bear Path School and District 9, West Woods School.
In North Haven, there is a three-way race for first selectman. Democrat Walter Spader and Independent Gary Amato are challenging Republican incumbent Michael J. Freda. Spader's running mate for selectman is Alan Sturtz. Amato's running mate is Michael Mele and incumbent Republican Selectman Timothy Doheny is running on Freda's line. The first selectman candidate with the highest number of votes becomes the first selectman. That person's running mate becomes the second selectman. So that leaves the next-highest vote-getter to become the third selectman. It will be interesting to see what happens.
There are two other candidates running on the independent line: Dr. James C. Hogan Jr. for Board of Education and volunteer firefighter Howard Cappetta for fire commissioner. Hogan, an 18-year member of the school board who didn't get the Democratic Town Committee nomination, is running against Democrats Martin L. Piccirillo and Jennifer Ann Caldwell and Republicans Stephen Consiglio and Bert F. Mozealous for full terms on the school board. Democrat Kristen M. Brandt and Republican Bryan Bogen are running to fill a vacancy of two years on the school board.
Democratic Town Chairman Peter Criscuolo is trying to keep his seat on the Fire Commission. Also running are Republican incumbent Salvatore "Sam" Muzio and Cappetta.
In Hamden, there are three people running for mayor, incumbent Democrat Scott D. Jackson, Republican Matthew J. Corcoran and petitioning candidate Charles Baltayan. There are no other independent candidates in Hamden.
There are three council races where it's anybody's guess who will win. In District 2, former Councilman Harry Gagliardi, a Democrat, is running againts incumbent Gabe Lupo, a police lieutenant. In District 7, incumbent Democratic Councilman Michael Colaiacovo is being challenged by Ronald Gambardella, a former GOP mayoral candidate and councilman. In the 9th District, incumbent GOP Councilwoman Lynn Campo is facing a challenge from newcomer Scott Harris, a Democrat.

Turn extra Halloween candy to Gold
Dr. Gold is leading this anti-decay movement by giving away dollars in exchange for cavity-provoking candy.
“Kids can still have all of the fun of trick or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well,” says Dr. Gold.
We all know that children love candy, but eating candy is hurting children’s teeth and may lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. In some cases, the wrong types of candy can also lead to broken teeth and damaged braces.
Global sugar consumption for kids increase by about 2% annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year, which means parents need to be sure their kids’ teeth are being cared for more than ever.
Dr. Gold is sponsoring the Halloween Candy Buy Back from November 01 to November 05, 2011 and children can drop off their candy at his office located at 2440 Whitney Ave., Hamden, CT 06518. Call for drop-off time.
Dr. Gold adds, “We will be conducting similar events in Hamden and surrounding areas periodically throughout the year to help the less fortunate in our community.”
“People helping people have been one of the prominent strengths of our country. Now during these hard economic times, the spirit of giving and helping is needed more than ever,” Dr. Gold concludes.
Details of Dr. Gold’s other community events can be found online at: https://mail.journalregister.com/owa/redir.aspx?C=b52e889f530f4ad688529a802a7cd6cc&URL=http%3a%2f%2fophthalmologisthamdenct.com%2findex.php%2fcategory%2fcommunity-events%2f
