Wantagh Elementary School moving up

Wantagh Elementary School honored its fifth-grade students with an annual moving-up ceremony on June 21. The ceremony marked the students commencement of elementary school and progression to middle school next September. As part of the ceremony, nine fifth-grade students performed musical solos and duets. Additionally, the entire class sang “Forever Young” and “Make it Shine” in unison, led by Angelo Annunziata. Fifth-grade teachers Diana DeLauro, Karen Easter, Elisa Ferrara, John Hobbes, Kathryn Lux-McKeefrey, Amanda Mooney, Gail Murphy and Traci Weiss then announced the names of their students to recognize their transition from elementary school to middle school, after which the fifthgraders received their diplomas.

Dr. Donald Sternberg, principal of Wantagh Elementary School, commonly called “Beach Street School,” discussed the concept of a timeline during his address, referencing the moving up ceremony as a midpoint in the students’ public school careers and wishing the future Wantagh High School Class of 2019 all the best in their futures. “Parents, pass on your knowledge, your understanding, your compassion, and your love to your children,” he advised. “Everything, everything is in front of you. Be wise enough to heed the advice of your parents and your teachers, and we want you to enjoy your journey,” Dr. Sternberg said. Wantagh Elementary’s moving-up is representative of the moving-ups that occurred at each of the district’s schools last month.

State Legislature OKs Sewage Pollution Right to Know Act by Laura Schofer The state Legislature recently passed the Sewage Pollution Right to Know Act which requires public notification of sewage spills. The bill was co-sponsored by state Senator Charles J. Fuschillo (RMerrick) and Assemblyman Harvey Weisenberg (D- Long Beach) in the state Assembly. The legislation is now waiting to be signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo. It would go into effect May 1, 2013. The proposed law requires that publicly

run sewage treatment facilities provide the public notice after raw or partially treated sewage spills into the water. They would have four hours to make such a report public. The state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is the lead agency required to notify the public about a spill through the media. Furthermore, the legislation reads, “The department [DEC], in consultation with the Department of Health, shall post reported information on its website expeditiously and shall prepare a report on

publicly owned treatment works and sewer system discharges annually. The report shall, at a minimum, include: the total number of discharges, details of such discharges including the volume and treated state of the discharge, and the duration and location of each discharge; as well as any remedial responses taken to mitigate impacts and avoid further discharges.” “Whether it’s swimming, boating or fishing, Long Island’s beautiful beaches and waterways are widely utilized by res-

idents throughout the year, especially in the summer. When untreated sewage that could potentially affect their health is discharged into the waterway, they deserve to know immediately,” said Senator Fuschillo. “Requiring prompt disclosure of sewage discharges will ensure that residents who could be affected get as much information as quickly as possible.” Adrienne Esposito, executive director for Citizens Campaign for the Environment who has worked to advo(continued on page 2)

from page 1 cate for this legislation for over a year, said, “Timely notification about sewage overflow will allow families to take precautions and avoid swimming in sewage, boating in bacteria or fishing in filth. When it comes to harmful sewage pollution, ignorance is not bliss, it is dangerous,” she said. Sewage carries disease-causing microorganisms that cause diarrhea,

vomiting, respiratory and other infections, hepatatis, dysentery. A common illness caused by swimming in and drinking untreated or partially treated sewage water is gastroenteritis but can lead to more chronic illnesses, especially for children and the elderly, according to information provided by the state Health Department. “Waterborne illnesses resulting from swimming are on the rise nationwide,” explained Ms. Esposito. “The U.S.

Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] estimates that between 1.8 and 3.5 million Americans become ill annually from contact with sewage in recreational waters,” she said. Sewage pollution is caused by several factors including outdated and failing infrastructure as well as suburban development that can increase non-permeable surfaces. In Nassau County, 80% of the surfaces are nonpermeable. Water, normally captured and drained into the ground, has nowhere to go, creating stormwater run-off which goes directly into the sewer system, thus needing to be treated. New York State is the seventh state in the nation to pass a sewage pollution right to know act. Nassau County has its

own version of the right to know spill bill. Last October the county Legislature passed a bill that provides information about sewage spills to residents who sign up to receive email alerts. At this time there is no national standard requiring sewage operators to alert the public about spills, writes Katherine Baer, senior director of the Clean Water Program, American Rivers, on her blog. “Currently over 200 million people are served by treatment plants that provide secondary or more advanced treatment, up from 140 million served by wastewater treatment in the late 1960s before the Clean Water Act was passed,” according to the website of American Rivers.

From an ugly duckling to a swan History is what makes the Norman Levy Park and Preserve in Merrick, just at the Freeport border, even more special. This beautiful waterfront overlook used to be a garbage dump. The ugly duckling became a swan. Merrick landscaper Jay Pitti saw its potential back in the early 1980s. He shared his vision for an overlook preserve and sanctuary with local leaders such as Judge Jerome Medowar, Marian Fraker-Gutin, the late Mildred Donnelly from the Merrick Chamber of Commerce and the late Faith Laursen of Merrick Life. Then-Hempstead Town Supervisor Thomas Gulotta did a survey and found the wider community also supported the idea. The state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) was convinced to consider converting the former landfill into a preserve under the stewardship of then-Sanitation Commissioner Dick Ronan. And the late state Senator Norman Levy was instrumental in getting the state to do what the town wanted, saving millions of dollars for taxpayers in the process. Town of Hempstead Presiding Supervisor Kate Murray has also been supportive of the many “green” endeavors at the preserve, such as the recent acquisition of solar-powered jitneys used to take fishermen to the pier and sightseers on nature tours. Sixty-five Eagle Scout projects have been done in the preserve, saving the taxpayers money. Homes were built for the goats that do the grass mowing, the guinea hens that keep down the tick population and the swallows that eat the mosquitos. About 50-60,000 people visit the preserve each month to walk or jog the fitness trails, take kayak tours or fish. Knowledgeable rangers such as Audobonner Scott Oglesby lead nature tours. Deputy Commissioner Mike McConnell has a collection of flags of all the countries that have sent delegations to study and possibly emulate what has been done here. As he told members of the Friends of Norman Levy Park and Preserve gathered for their annual tour last week, “We are here to stay and as popular as ever.”

JAY PITTI (right) of Merrick, who proposed that the former Hempstead Town landfill “garbage mountain” be turned into a nature preserve, welcomes Richard Ronan of North Merrick, forphoto by Paul Laurson mer town sanitation commissioner, back to Levy Park last week.

citizen circuit TRUMP ON THE OCEAN APPROVED: The longdelayed Trump on the Ocean project at Jones Beach has been given the green light by the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historical Preservation. The new facility will be 38,560 square feet at the Central Mall boardwalk and accommodate up to 400 people with indoor and outdoor seating, and 1,250 catered guests. All lawsuits between the two parties were dropped. Central to any agreement between Mr. Trump and the state was that the 14,000square-foot basement be used only for storage of minor equipment. The Trump Organization finally agreed to that stipulation – after several years of lawsuits. No state funds will be used, and local school and fire districts will receive no taxes from the deal. ©©© WINNERS: Save Seaford Sports announces the winners of its recent trip raffle: First prize to Ben Erskine, a trip of his choice; second prize, to Dominick Passarella, a 32” digital TV; third prize, Janice price, a nook color E-Reader.

Home of the Majestic Community Service Scholarship, awarded each year to a graduating Seaford Senior.

by Laura Amante A Wantagh dance studio is celebrating 50 years of teaching girls the joys of dancing. Clare Mundy, the owner and teacher of Clare’s Studio of Dance, founded her studio in September 1961, and has been teaching local girls dancing since then. Her first studio was in her parents’ basement on Waverly Avenue in Seaford. She moved to her current Wantagh home in 1969, and her studio has been there ever since. Mrs. Mundy teaches ballet, point, and tap, and she also teaches acrobatics and twirling. Her studio has annual recitals, but does not compete in competitions. “I just want the girls to do their very best,” she said.

Mrs. Mundy also taught acrobatics to a girl who performed with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus.

Matthew Sturm of Wantagh just recently made his Bar Mitzvah at Temple B’nai Torah. For his Mitzvah project he collected and donated items to Last Hope Animal Rescue of Wantagh, 3300 Beltagh Avenue (former Bideawee location) Matthew would like to thank his aunt for helping him with his project and all his friends,

family and teachers who donated to his cause. He would also like to thank the staff at the Last Hope. He thinks they were all very warm and welcoming, or as Matthew put it, “it felt great doing this for my mitzvah project and seeing all the big smiles on everyone’s faces.” Matthew hopes that in three years his sister Emily picks the same mitzvah project that he did.
