Teddy Bear Clinic

he kindergarteners at Tackan Elementary recently participated in a special Arts In Education program, Teddy Bear Clinic, sponsored by the PTA. A nurse from Stony Brook Hospital visited each class to teach the kindergarteners about safety. The students then pretended they were doctors and diagnosed and treated their stuffed animals. It was a day full of hands-on fun and learning that they will always remember. Pictured are some of the students with their bears.

Agency Of The Year

The Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (LICADD) was named the 2013 Agency of the Year by the National Association of Social Workers New York State (NASW-NYS) Chapter. LICADD will be presented with the award on March 1st at the NASWNYS 2013 Power of Social Conference in Albany. LICADD provides direct support to over 6,600 individuals and families annually through substance abuse interventions, treatment referrals and recovery support services. The Student Assistance Program (SAP) delivers prevention education trainings to 20,000 students, parents, teachers

and administrators in 56 districts. An additional 60,000 individuals are served through the agency’s Open Arms Employee Assistance Program (EAP). LICADD’s clinical team, under the direction of Clinical Director Steve Chassman, LCSW, CASAC, is comprised of dedicated and compassionate staff whose professional interests and credentials strengthen the innovative programs and services that LICADD offers. In addition, the agency provides trainings and internship opportunities to over twenty interns each year from graduate level Social Work programs across Long Island and the Greater New York area.

“I am honored to accept the award on behalf of our Clinical Team,” stated LICADD Executive Director Jeffrey Reynolds, Ph. D., CEAP, SAP. “We have an exceptionally dedicated staff and their commitment to their clients shows in each and every interaction.” “LICADD is an exemplary organization,” explained NASW-NYS Executive Director Reinaldo Cardona, MSSW, LCSW, “and we are pleased to bestow the 2013 Agency of the Year Award in light of the remarkable achievements LICADD and its staff continue to make in the field of social work.” Founded in 1955, the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) is

the largest membership association for professional social workers in the world, with 160,000 members in the United States and overseas. Each year, the New York State Chapter recognizes one agency, department, organization or government entity that best promotes and upholds the Association’s standard of values and ethics while developing innovative approaches to better meet client needs. In addition to LICADD’s strong track-record of developing evidence-based programing in response to trends in substance abuse and addiction on Long Island, the agency actively pushes for effective public policy as it relates to underage

drinking, substance abuse and access to treatment. In 2012, LICADD celebrated the passage of the ISTOP (Internet System for Tracking Over-Prescribing) Act and welcomed Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice to a press conference in the agency’s Mineola office. In Suffolk County, better oversight of sober homes was approved and a Narcan Pilot Program has resulted in more than 30 overdose reversals in the last three months. 2013 marks the 57th year of LICADD, and the expansion of many of the agency’s core programs including its BUDDY

Mentoring, Start 2Stop and Open Arms Employee Assistance Program (EAP). LICADD’s resources not only support individuals dealing with addiction and recovery but address the broad range of issues that friends and loved ones often experience. From sibling and grief and loss support groups, to family education and anger management programs, LICADD offers a comprehensive list of resources from its three offices in Mineola, Ronkonkoma and Riverhead, NY. For more information, please call us at 516.747.2606, or email recover@licadd.org. For a full list of LICADD’s programs and resources, please visit www.licadd.org.

I’m beginning to despise Mother Nature. More specifically, I despise those weather forecasters, news anchors and so-called “reporters” who insist on inciting what amounts to mass hysteria every time a single snowflake or shower is detected on the horizon. Honestly, have we learned nothing from Hurricane Sandy? Back in October, there was plenty of advance warning, to be sure; but how many decided against taking precautionary measures based solely on past precedent? What’s that they say about the boy who cried wolf? Oh, eventually, he will be right…but no one will listen. Fast forward to my most favorite season of all – winter –

with all its blizzards and sleet and ice storms. You know, the season where one flake in the forecast calls for widespread panic. Let’s all run in droves to the stores to snap up every last shovel and snow-blower – “just in case.” Let’s stock up on milk and eggs because, after all, once the power goes out, what better necessities to have on hand? Oh, and let’s not forget to wait in line for gas once again – you know, for all that driving we’ll surely be doing in two feet of snow. Seriously people? Personally, I’m a big fan of waking up, looking out the window and assessing the situation for myself. And if the power goes out, well that’s a whole other ballgame. Then gone are those cozy dreams of being snowed in with nothing but a pile of DVDs and books to catch up on while you bake

cookies and make hot cocoa. Honestly, the last time I truly enjoyed a “snow day,” I was probably about eight years old. It’s a bit different when you need to shovel your way out and work for a living, isn’t it fellow adults? And doesn’t it always seem that the worst weather hits right when you have a million things to do? When you have all these grand plans to be productive and proactive and all that good stuff? So much for that. Best plan: pull the covers over your head, go back to sleep and enjoy the peace and quiet. No hysteria, no stockpile of milk and eggs, no need to skate all over the roads. No sense trying to fight what you can’t control. Trust me, there is no shovel that’s a match for Mother Nature.


Center to bless the new chapel. Fr. Fred Hill, Staff Chaplain, worked tirelessly on building this chapel as a place for peace and quiet moments of prayer. “This chapel has been a dream come true for the residents and staff who now have a place to renew themselves and find peace and comfort. The chapel provides a source of power and inspiration to all that visit or reside within the facility,” stated Fr.

Fred Hill. More than 50 people, consisting of staff, residents, Administration and Board Members joined Bishop Murphy for this special day of prayer and services. Bishop Murphy spent time visiting with the residents and staff, while thanking all for what they do each and every day. It was a special day filled with joy and peace at seeing this chapel come to completion.

“We’re Not Just Baskets!”

Before the puck drops on Saturday, February 16th the New York Islanders Hockey Club and the American Red Cross will, for its third year, partner for a blood drive to continue their lifesaving commitment. The blood drive will take place at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. As a special thank you for helping their neighbors, all presenting donors will receive a voucher for two tickets to a 20122013 Islanders regular season home game.* This marks the first of four blood drives the two organizations will host this year. Local donors are needed all year round to ensure the blood supply stays strong. Blood is an essential component for patient care in area hospitals, and the only source of blood is a

healthy, volunteer donor. Your one donation can help save up to three lives and it only takes about an hour of your time. “By rolling up your sleeve, you may help provide lifesaving blood where and when it is needed. This profound, heart-felt act may help save the life of a real person in your community,” said Donna M. Morrissey, Director of Communications, Red Cross Northeast Division. “The blood drive has become a staple of the Islanders’ community outreach efforts,” Dave Decina, Islanders VP of Corporate Partnerships, said. “It has grown with every event, testifying to the strength of our fans’ communal ties. As an organizational family, we take comfort in knowing our efforts bring us a step closer to a better future.” The Red Cross blood

drive will take place in the Lower Box Office of the Coliseum. Walk-ins are always welcome, but donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment in advance by calling 1.800.RED.CROSS (1.800.733.2767) or by visiting redcrossblood. org. All presenting donors will also receive a voucher for one free entrée from Moe’s Southwest Grill and have the opportunity to enter to win many great prizes including a luxury suite for ten people at the Saturday, March 9th Islanders game, a catered lunch for 20 from Moe’s Southwest Grill and a Hockey Getaway Package which includes two Islanders game tickets to the March 22nd game, a “High Five” opportunity as players come onto the ice, overnight accommodations and breakfast at the Long Island Marriott.*

Dave Erlanger, the Director of the GENESIS program said that “it was a great experience for our students to learn about the process from a Doctoral candidate actively engaged in the research process”. The GENESIS students are currently learning the basics of research and working on creating thorough literature reviews in anticipation of starting their own projects next year. Mrs. Micucci proclaimed “it was a pleasure to present to the students in the Genesis program. The students generated several thought-provoking questions about the research presented, shared information about their acquired knowledge, and asked questions about different college programs. They were a wonderful audience, and I truly enjoyed my time at St. John the Baptist!”

Churchill Scholar

Stony Brook University senior, Kevin Sackel, an Honors College student double-majoring in Mathematics & Physics with a minor in Music, has been selected as a Churchill Scholar by the Winston Churchill Foundation of the United States to study at the University of Cambridge where he will spend the 2013-2014 academic year pursuing a one-year Master of Advanced Study degree in Mathematics. This prestigious award is given each year to select students that demonstrate exceptional academic talent, outstanding achievement and a capacity to contribute to the advancement of academic knowledge in their respective field. Of this year’s 14 Churchill Scholarship recipients, Sackel is the only student selected from a New York college or university. He will receive full tuition and college fees, a living allowance and a stipend for travel expenses. “We are all extremely proud of Kevin for achieving such a high honor, and as such he honors Stony Brook,” said Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD, President of Stony Brook University. “We have celebrated three Stony Brook educated Churchill Scholars in recent years, all of whom are brilliant. Kevin is the first to be awarded this prestigious scholarship in the tremendously competitive Cambridge Department of Pure Mathematics. That he has accomplished this underlines his prowess as well as that of our Math Department. I could not be more impressed.” “Through hard work and dedication, Kevin Sackel has clearly earned what is one of the most competitive and prestigious academic opportunities in the nation,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. “As a Churchill Scholar, we are confident that he will represent New York and SUNY with distinction as he continues his studies alongside some of the world’s best and brightest young minds. Congratulations to Kevin and the entire Stony Brook community.” “I am extremely honored to have been selected as a Churchill Scholar,” Sackel said. “My experience at Stony Brook University has been wonderful and I thank all of those who have supported me throughout my academic career and during the application process for this award. I am really looking forward to my experience in the Department of Pure Mathematics at Cambridge; I think it will be great fun.” Under the direction of Stony Brook Math Professor Christopher Bishop, himself a Churchill Scholar (1982-1983), Sackel is working on his undergraduate thesis involving questions of mathematical analysis. Professor Bishop fully supported Sackel’s application and noted that he “is the best candidate for a Churchill

Scholarship I have ever seen, or expect to see.” Sackel has maintained a perfect 4.0 grade point average at Stony Brook University. Sackel also conducted independent research involving algebraic structures under the direction of Professor Martin Rocek of the Institute for Theoretical Physics. Additional faculty sponsors supporting Kevin’s application include Professors Moira Chas and Dennis Sullivan in the Department of Mathematics. Professor Chas praises Sackel’s “fantastic mind” and ranks him as “the best student I have met in my more than 20 years of teaching.” Professor Sullivan, the winner of the Wolf Prize in Mathematics (2010), in detail relates his “astonishment” at Sackel’s problem-solving abilities and describes his unique personal qualities as “very rare.” “I am deeply impressed by Kevin’s intelligence, commitment, humility and concern for others,” said

Dr. Charles Robbins, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education at Stony Brook University. “While it is unusual to meet a student with any one of these characteristics, to encounter someone who demonstrates them all on virtually a daily basis is indeed very special. Kevin is that special individual. There is no doubt in my mind that he will make the Churchill Scholarship program, Cambridge University and Stony Brook University very proud.” In his freshman year at Stony Brook, Sackel reinvigorated the Math Club and now serves as its president. For the past four years he has represented the Mathematics Department in the William Lowell Putnam Mathematics Competition, an annual competition for undergraduate students that is considered by many to be the most prestigious university-level mathematics

examination in the world. He was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Pi Sigma Honors Societies as a junior and plays the oboe for the University Orchestra. He is a recipient of the Undergraduate Recognition Award for Academic Excellence and is a member of the computer programming team. Other honors include winning the Freshman Math Department Award; the Stony Brook Foundation Award for Excellence in Mathematics as a sophomore; and the Kugh-Sah Memorial Award in Mathematics as a junior. He regularly challenges himself with graduate level courses and in his spare time audits courses that spark his interest. He also dishes out compliments and hugs to people in front of the Student Activities Center every Monday to brighten their day. After finishing his PhD in Mathematics, Sackel hopes to enter the academic world. “Professorship appears to be the ideal job, since it would keep me strongly tied to the mathematical world through research while also allowing me to share my love of mathematics through teaching,” he said. Kevin is the fourth student from Stony Brook to be honored as a Churchill Scholar and one of only three Churchill Scholars named this year to be graduating from a public university. Previous Churchill Scholar recipients from Stony Brook University include Rita Kalra (2005-2006), Diana David (2004-2005) and Belvin Gong (1999-2000). Stony Brook University currently has three Churchill Scholars on faculty; these include Professor Bishop, Jessica Seeliger, Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacological Sciences; and Eugene Katz, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Molecular Genetics & Biology. The Winston Churchill Foundation was established in 1959, the same year that Churchill College at the University of Cambridge was established as the national and Commonwealth tribute to Sir Winston Churchill. The first Churchill Scholarships, three in number, were made in 1963, and with this new group there will be 479 Churchill Scholars. The Churchill Scholarship pays all University and College fees (ranging from $33,500 to $37,600), a living allowance (ranging from $17,700 to $21,000), transportation to and from the United Kingdom (up to $1,100), student visa expenses ($450), a Travel Award of $500, and a possible Special Research Grant up to $2,000. Depending on the field of study, the Churchill Scholarship is worth from $52,800 to $62,600 (depending on the rate of exchange).

Naturally Lowering Cholesterol

(NAPSI)—If living a healthier life is your cup of tea, you may be interested in an easy way to improve your health—using the natural antioxidant powers of tea. Almost half of all Americans are overweight and have dangerously high levels of cholesterol. Heart attacks are still the No. 1 killer in the U.S. The problem is that high cholesterol and your risk

may be greater than you think. According to American Heart Association guidelines, the acceptable level of “bad cholesterol” is 30 percent lower than it used to be only a few years ago. This means that millions of Americans, including those who never dreamed they were at risk, now are. Fortunately, there are natural, nonprescription

alternatives for lowering cholesterol. For example, heart-healthy products such as TeaFlavin, an all-natural, caffeine-free capsule made from tea extract, contain as much cholesterol-fighting power as 35 cups of green tea. For more information on TeaFlavin, visit www. teaflavin.com or call (800) 876-4332.


boardwalk, playground and restaurant. Registration will get underway at noon with the dip set for 2 p.m. “We’re so excited and gratified that Huntington Township has allowed us to relocate our plunge this year from storm-damaged Amityville,” said Michael Smith, Camp Sunshine’s Director of Special Events. “This polar dip on Long Island will raise funds for Camp Sunshine and help more families from that area take advantage of our services.” He added, “The reality of this event is that the discomfort our plungers feel for just a moment will never compare to what our families go through during the course of their child’s illness. It’s for the families and children that we plunge – we call it Freezin’ for a Reason.” Those unable or not willing to submerge in near-freezing water can still participate in the Chicken Dip. Chicken dippers are still required to raise the minimum of $100 to participate, but only need to get their feet wet – a perfect opportunity for some of Camp Sunshine’s children to take part, Smith said. Nestled alongside the shores of beautiful Sebago Lake in Casco, Maine, Camp Sunshine (www.campsunshine.org) offers children with lifethreatening illnesses and their families a place to relax together for a week and to take a break from the extraordinary demands placed on them on a daily basis. The year-round program is free of charge and

staffed almost entirely by volunteers. It is the only program in the nation whose mission is to address the impact of a life-threatening illness on every member of the immediate family Since the opening of the Camp’s year-round campus in 2001, more ill children and their families have come from New York than any other state in the nation. In 2012, 152 families from New York, many from Long Island, attended the Camp. Even with multiple sessions being added annually at Camp Sunshine, there are still many more children from New York being newly diagnosed each year, Smith said. Camp Sunshine’s program continues to be recommended by the following New York treatment centers: Mount Sinai Medical Center, Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, Schneider’s Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York University Medical Center, Brooklyn Hospital Center, Westchester Medical Center, Stony Brook Medical Center, and numerous others.

The Suffolk County Correctional Facility was highlighted during today’s general meeting of the Suffolk County Legislature as Sheriff Vincent F. DeMarco accepted a plaque and recognition from the New York State Sheriffs’ Association for the county jails’ recent re-accreditation and adherence to outstanding operating standards. DeMarco, in accepting the plaque for the correctional facility stated, “Suffolk County’s

correctional system and inmate population is among the largest in the State, which makes it a challenging corrections environment. I couldn’t be more proud of the work of our officers and staff who strive to meet and exceed these rigorous professional standards.” Tom Mitchell, Counsel for the NYS Sheriffs’ Association, added “Significant time and effort is required to meet our stringent accreditation standards, and we

appreciate sheriffs like Vincent DeMarco who are committed to excellence in the field of corrections.” Also present at the ceremony were key members of the accreditation team: Warden Charles Ewald, Lieutenant Richard Macchi and Lieutenant Curtis Sclafani. They were honored with Certificates of Recognition for their work on the accreditation process.

Religious Emblem Presented

Cub Scout Shawn Devine of Pack 403 (Commack) was presented with his God and Family Methodist Cub Scout Religious Emblem during the annual Scout Sunday services, held at Commack United Methodist Church on February 3rd. The first eleven points of the Boy Scout Law must be demonstrated in order to go from one rank to the next, including Eagle. The 12th point --”A Scout is Reverent”-can be demonstrated in a variety of ways including the earning of the religious award of the Scout’s individual faith. As with all the religious emblems, these are not an award for Scouting skills, but rather an emblem authorized by the Boy Scouts of America to be worn on the Scout’s uniform after satisfactory completion of the necessary

requirements. For 4th and 5th grade/10-11 year old Webelos Cub Scouts of the Methodist faith, the God and Family Emblem is designed to help youth understand the importance of family and God’s role in a healthy family. The God and Family Program provides an opportunity for young people and their families to explore their faith together. Children read about different families in the Bible, which can teach them about God’s plan for strengthening families. Working with his parents, Barbara and Tom Devine Webelos Scout Shawn Devine spent (six months in preparation for earning his God and Family Methodist Cub Scout Religious Emblem. In observance of the 12th point of the Scout Law, Second Year Webelos Scout Shawn Devine of

Cub Scout Pack # 403 (Commack) was presented with the God and Family Emblem on February 3, 2013 during the annual Scout Sunday services at the Commack United Methodist Church by the Reverend Lynda BatesStepe. Webelos Cub Scout Shawn Devine is the son of Barbara and Thomas Devine and the older brother to foster sibling Destinee. His grandparents are Eileen and Wilbert Waidelich who were very active in Boy Scout Troop 125 (Commack). Scout Devine is emulating and following in his uncle’s footsteps - Eagle Scout Steven Waidelich (1973) was the first scout in Commack United Methodist church to have earned the God and Country Religious Emblem of the Methodist Boy Scout in 1974.

Monster Hunt

The Monster Hunt program recently came to Accompsett Elementary School. Children between the ages of 7 and 14 develop research skills as they hunt for a lurking monster! Teams of eager adventurers learn how to

use the library catalog and the Dewey Decimal System to find hidden clues that will help them locate the Monster’s Secret Lair. Every group has its own set of clues to find - there is never any competing over clues, so every child always

(NAPSI)—Cats can be loving, loyal, feisty or fierce—and if you saw the hit movie “Puss In Boots,” then you know one cat can embody all those traits and more. Adopting a cat can be a “purrfectly” wonderful idea as long as you understand the commitment that comes along with it. Before bringing a cat

home, consider these tips from Madeline Bernstein, president of the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA): • Evaluate your needs. Are you ready to make the commitment to a pet? Cats can live up to 18 years. On average, pet care costs about $400 a year. • Visit a pet adoption

center. Don’t shop when you can adopt. Shelters have many cats to choose from and adoption saves lives. • Questions? Ask the staff. The shelter staff can often tell you the animal’s personality traits, likes, dislikes, temperament, breed, and activity level. Keep your options open. A pet doesn’t have to

be a kitten to be a loyal companion. • Patience. Be patient. You may need to visit the adoption centers a few times before you find the cat that’s right for you. • Decide as a family. Does the cat get along with everyone and how does everyone get along with the cat? • You made a decision,

now what? Here are some items you should have before bringing your new cat home: ID tag and breakaway collar, cat food, pet bowls (2), litter box (rule of thumb: one for each cat, plus one), litter and scooper, toys, treats, scratching post, cat carrier (for vet trips/ emergencies) and a plan for veterinary care.

• We love our new cat, but we’re having some issues. Don’t give up. The solution may only require a slight adjustment in behaviors. spcaLA has an Animal Behavior Hotline at (888) SPCALA-1, x260 to answer pet behavior questions.

(NAPSI)—Granite countertops are the most popular option available when it comes to kitchen or bathroom remodeling. They look great, they’re durable, but they can also cost thousands of dollars. Granite requires special care and attention because it’s a natural stone. Here are a few tips to help you protect your investment: • Seal your countertops: According to the Marble Institute of America, an industry group, granite countertops should be sealed so that the stone is more resistant to dirt and spills. Check with the manufacturer or retailer about the best kind of sealer to use on food preparation areas. • Be careful what you clean with: Never use ammonia—based products-or cleaners containing vinegar, lemon or orange—on your

granite countertops. Avoid abrasive cleaners such as dry or soft cleansers. Don’t use cleaning products that contain acid such as bathroom, grout, or tub and tile cleaners. Specialty granite cleaners can be used, but they can be expensive. There’s a way to stretch your dollars. • Mind your budget: JAWS Glass & Hard Surface Cleaner (www.jawscleans. com) cleans granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, glass and even your flat-screen TV. It’s also non-toxic and costs less than most other cleaners because each JAWS product is actually two bottles in one. (The cartridge refill is attached to the bottle.) There are also some other basic preventive measures you can take to protect your granite countertops: • Use coasters: Place

a coaster under all glasses, particularly those containing alcohol or citrus juices that can etch or dull the surface of many stone countertops. • Use trivets or mats: They’ll protect your granite countertop from hot dishes and help avoid scratches. Granite countertops can really add spark to a kitchen or bathroom. Proper care will keep them looking beautiful.
