ON THE COVER

Division Avenue Students Hold Colorful Fundraiser BY JOSEPH WOLKIN

t was a colorful Sunday at Division Avenue High School, more so than any other. That’s because the Pin to Win Wrestling Parent’s Club wanted to do something unique for the community. As the Division Avenue varsity wrestlers attempt to expand their horizons, the club thought it would be the perfect opportunity to raise awareness about what they’re trying to accomplish. “We want to take them traveling, and it’s just very expensive with the traveling itself, the cost of hotels and so forth,” Deena Moore, president of the Pin to Win Wrestling Parent’s Club, said. “These fundraisers help pay for these events and the travel expenses. The fundraising is great for scholarships at the end of the year for the seniors. All of the money we raise goes to the kids. It’s just important that we

ON THE COVER FUNDRAISER from page 3 have funds to provide them with.” The club created the first annual Color Run, which took place on May 19, as supporters walked around the school’s track with plenty of paint powder to go around for everyone. In all, about 175 people showed up to the event. “Everyone was covered, head-to-toe,” Moore, whose son J.D. is on the Division Avenue varsity team, said. “When do you see wrestlers covered head-to-toe in color powder? They were having their own fun amongst themselves at the station. I think they had a great time.” Head coach Sean Breves first cooked up this idea last year, adopting his own version of it after seeing Massapequa do a similar event. Not only were the wrestlers involved in the event, but the National Honor Society members of Division Avenue High School also stepped up. Thanks to the success of the Color Run, the varsity team will be able to reward its students, many of whom have been looking to get new equipment. Additionally, the extra several hundred

dollars in funding raised during the Color Run will help the wrestling squad pay for non-division events, travel and more. First up will be an overnight trip in the coming weeks. “The goal was twofold,” Breves said. “One was just to raise money for the wrestling team. It’s very expensive. This is my second year, and I really

wanted to build a team that was a family to support Levittown as a community. A lot of teams do fundraisers, but I felt something like this is great for the community.” Since the event was such a success, the Pin to Win Wrestling Parent’s Club plans to make this an annual event. Besides the support of the

school community, the Color Run was sponsored by ZIC PT of Levittown, Huntington Learning Center of Carle Place and Method Test Prep of Plainview. “Every senior on our team gets a scholarship,” Breves said. “Last year, we did $100 for every senior who graduated. I’m hoping that in the years to come, this can be a big fundraiser and we can offer more substantial scholarships to seniors.” Moving forward, Breves has high expectations for his Blue Dragons. As the family atmosphere catches on, it’s something that other schools in the district can follow. “I am very proud of our Division Avenue school community and the numerous philanthropic activities they undertake each year,” Superintendent of Levittown Public Schools Dr. Tonie McDonald said. “The Color Run is just one example of the many ways our schools give back to the community.” Do you have a story you want to tell?

Art Of Poetry In Levittown BY MARIA HUGHES

levittown@antonmediagroup.com

Levittown is known for many things, like its vast veteran population, suburbia and true American pride. But not many have explored poetry in Levittown...until now. These two poems provide not only the essence of what Levittown is, but what it means for all of America. —Maria Hughes is a Levittown native and the author of A Book of Poetry About ‘Things You Wanted To Say’

HAVE YOU SEEN MY SOLDIERS

Have you seen my soldiers? I’ve searched over hill and the plains. Have you seen my soldiers? I hope they’re not in pain. And then, they came. As they each came forward, I told them the wars are over. Their job is done, And they came one-by-one, before me. Beautiful shining faces—golden sunlight surrounding them, Once, wounded, battered, now, bravery shining from them like the golden sun. I’ve found them—and now, I’ll take them home, But, before they leave, a word to all “Do not forget their sacrifice —and this above all, teach the children, hold carefully the prize they won— Freedom for everyone.”

OLD GLORY SPEAKS

I saw them marching, one-by-one, In army fatigues, sweat-stained, covered with desert sand. I saw drawn faces, wet feet, sloshing through swamps in Vietnam. I saw them hunched over, blowing on their hands for warmth, Wrapped in wool, trying to keep warm in the hills of Korea. I saw them slashing vines in the jungles of Guadalcanal— And the others, Running with guns raised in the cold, wet, dead of night onto Anzio Beach. Never to return. On and on, lines of men. I saw them in tiny helmets, gas-masked faces, The “Yankee Doodle Dandies” of World War I, The line was unending. I saw young confident Confederate and Union soldiers, Fighting—American against American. The line continued, There were young farmers brandishing homemade arms, Moving along the shores of the Potomac and hills of Valley Forge, So many, so many there, so many gone, only a memory to loved ones. Looking ahead, I saw the young soldiers in Bosnia, the young marines and sailors in Somalia The navy seals in Afghanistan...bodies torn, nerves shattered; And so it begins once more, and continues on and on War—What lessons have been learned? What gain can there be in loss? What joy can be found in sorrow? What peace forged in fighting? They raise me over their heads, march with me at the forefront, Proud and brave. The “cause” is freedom, And I asked, “Tell me with is the Cause?” And from the hollow hills and the faceless men came—No Answer. And from the silence a voice spoke, “Behold, my children in whom I am so well pleased.”

After Memorial Day more adventurous among us. So it is with great appreciation that I contemplate Memorial Day. Our soldiers didn’t have the luxury of deciding where (or even when) to sleep. I can’t even begin to come close to imagining what the experience of the jungles of Vietnam or the mountains of Afghanistan were like. To be surrounded not only by the daily discomfort of a punishing environment, but to see the wounding and deaths of fellow soldiers—well, I shudder and weep if I think about it too long. And then, I imagine what

it is like to die in battle. There was mercy for those who died instantaneously, though, I’m horrified to think of what went through them if they saw their deaths coming. But there were too many who were wounded to death. Such suffering is so quickly passed over even in the most graphic war movies. And to dwell on this thought is too painful to continue for long. Oh, how I long for the day when all wars will cease. I cannot comprehend how, in the 21st century, people can still resort to war to settle differences and to correct injustices. On Memorial Day, we had a chance to reflect on the sacrifices so many men and women made in war. We celebrated with lively music, marching bands, antique cars, kids and grownups wearing all sorts of uniforms carrying all sorts of banners. It was fun and patriotic. It’s always good to see so many residents come out for the parade. But hidden amidst all the pageantry is the knowledge that we marched that day to honor those who encountered

THE SPIRIT OF LEVITTOWN

Fr. Ralph Sommer

When Ed Mangano was the county executive, Nassau County rubber-stamped grievances, granting reductions to 75 percent of those who requested one, while freezing everyone else’s property values. It has been well-documented that the result was a shift in the tax burden from those who grieved to those who did not. County Executive Laura Curran campaigned on fixing the broken assessment system, which had been abandoned by the previous administration and the Republican legislative majority. This caused much concern among Nassau County residents who wondered if the process would be fair and, more importantly, would they see a tax increase. Let’s be

clear on one thing: Nassau County will not be collecting a single cent more in property tax revenue as a result from reassessment. Legislator John Ferretti and his Republican majority, instead of being the voice of the people and expressing concerns or suggesting how to improve the process, decided instead to politicize it. They exploited their constituents’ fears and pointed fingers instead of offering practical solutions. Yes, there were gaffes, yet they were fixed promptly and did not create errors in the new assessments. The biggest blunder was done by furious Ferretti and his Republican colleagues for the past eight years. They ignored the broken assessment system and swept the issue under the rug so their campaign coffers could be filled by the likes

more than snakes and ticks and mosquitoes as they camped in the woods. Perhaps, we could call it “festive sadness,” as we think not only of those who died, but their families and friends who suffered and continue to suffer the loss of so many vibrant lives that otherwise would have fortified our world. While we might feel helpless to stop the wars that take place overseas, we do have a chance in the shadow of this Memorial Day to stop destructive wars we might be engaged in. Let’s make peace in our families, among our co-workers and in our neighborhood. These local “wars” are not without casualties, and our prayers for world peace can start by choosing peace and reconciliation right where we live.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR THE TALE OF REASSESSMENT

MassapequaObserver.com

LEVITTOWN-TRIBUNE.COM

COLUMN I spent one year of my childhood as a Cub Scout. When it was time to move up to the Boy Scouts, I declined—not because I found scouting unpleasant, but because it held the prospect of camping. I know there are a lot of people who find joy in living outdoors and I have a fine appreciation for God’s creation, but when it comes to the end of a day, I much prefer sleeping in my bed with a solid roof over my head. The thought of sleeping among snakes, ticks, mosquitoes and bears, well, I’d rather leave that up to the

of Maidenbaum and other property tax grievance firms. Now, the only “solution” I’ve heard from John Ferretti and the Republican entourage is to move back to an elected tax assessor. This idea is ludicrous, as the Republicans are trying to further politicize the process that will restore tax accuracy and fairness. Here is what is being missed in all their shouting: • The reassessment has eliminated the disparities that were created during Managano’s tenure. Those who didn’t appeal were paying a rate that was 29.2 percent higher than those who did. That rate is now only 0.1 percent. • Currently, property tax assessments are off by approximately 8.8 percent, well within industry standards. County Executive Curran’s

tax payer protection plan will improve the fairness and accuracy beginning in its first year. • Less than half of the population will see their taxes increase, while 55 percent of them will see their taxes decrease. The Republicans froze the rolls and a lot can change in 10 years. • Among those who saw their taxes increase, can you guess who is shouting the loudest? Yup, people on the Gold Coast. Money does indeed talk. • Not nearly a decade ago the voters of Nassau County overwhelmingly voted by referendum to change to an appointed tax assessor from an elected one. • And if you think your assessment is not fair, you still have the right to grieve. —Fran Avnet

Lions Club Helps Community With Vision Scanner

BY JOSEPH WOLKIN

T

jwolkin@antonmediagroup.com

he Levittown Lions Club is on a mission to help children in the area. Parents of toddlers might not know their children have eye issues, but the Lions Club is aiming to help as much as they can. With a Welch Allyn vision scanner, the Lions Club conducted a vision screening on 36 kids, each of whom were around 3 years old. The scan, which only takes a few seconds to find any potential eye problems, found that five children had a defect. “One little girl showed a pupil way out of line,” fundraising chairperson Les Rummel said. “This just tore me up and I knew that I had to get my own vision screener.” In total, Lions Clubs across Nassau County have three vision scanners that local chapters are allowed to borrow. Whenever the Levittown club uses it, they make sure it’s the Welch Allyn version since it’s the easiest and most

efficient to operate. Inspired by the one girl with the pupil issue, the Levittown Lions Club created a fundraising campaign to purchase their own scanner, which usually costs about $7,800. By the end of March, Rummel and Co. raised $4,700 through different raffles at Levittown Lanes and VFW Post 9592. “I found a Welch Allyn distributor in Farmingdale that would let me get one for $6,700,” Rummel said. “So I added the difference and I picked it up.” Rummel is in contact with different schools in Levittown, which he said are interested “in having their preschool children screened.” He also said Levittown Lanes wants to hold free weekend screenings, as well as local libraries. In addition, the Lions Club will contact nursery schools to let them know about this free service. For those interested in the vision scanner, they can visit www.lionsoflevittown@aol. com.

District Appoints Permanent Principal

D

uring the Levittown Public Schools’ Board of Education meeting on May 8, Lee Road Elementary School’s interim principal Jami Anspach was officially appointed as the permanent principal of Lee Road Elementary School. Anspach became interim principal at the start of 2019, taking the place of Anthony Goss, who retired at the end of December. Anspach grew up in the Levittown community, where she attended Summit Lane Elementary School and Wisdom Lane Middle School before graduating from Division Avenue High School. Anspach began as a teacher for 15 years at East Broadway Elementary School. This followed with new roles as assistant principal of Gardiners Avenue School, Northside Elementary School and East Broadway Elementary School throughout the years, before becoming the district assistant director of elementary education and then, Lee Road’s interim principal. “Jami is a bright energetic person who has been a wonderful influence
