Apparently, according to some, I write about “nothing” week after week. This sentiment, in the form of a threepage letter from a reader, arrived on my desk this morning and, rather than let it go and write what was intended to be a positive article, I have decided to address it. First off, writers – or at least the good ones – write for their audiences. First rule of Journalism. If you work for a hard-hitting investigative daily newspaper, well then, the content you produce should have a similar feel. If you write for a fluff-filled monthly magazine, likewise, you would be advised to adjust your tone accordingly. Here, where our audience is

made up of Long Island community members interested in reading about the local happenings at their schools and libraries, upcoming meetings and events, and the recent achievements of their friends and neighbors… well that’s a very specific, unique demographic now, isn’t it? It would be virtually impossible to cater to each and every person out there and their individual expectations; and yes, sometimes my columns may be about “nothing” in particular – just a human interest, weekly feature, usually drawn from personal experiences, that hopefully strikes a chord with the general population. To criticize that concept as a whole is to be severely misinformed about what this newspaper is, what type of content we pro-

mote and what the majority of our audience appreciates. That said, I hope that this particular reader – who, for all her bitter hatred of this column, apparently still feels the need to read it each and every week – now understands the medium, and the intended message, at least a little better. Sometimes, “nothing” is just as good as something… I believe there was a fairly successful TV show which was modeled on precisely this concept at one point. Just because something doesn’t interest you does not make it uninteresting. And if you don’t even take the time to explore those things which are outside of your accepted norm, well then, I suppose you’ll never know what you might be missing out on.

Much Ado About “Nothing”


A Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office K-9 team was recently called in by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to perform a narcotics sniff related to currency that had been seized during a narcotics investigation. The Sheriff’s Deputy “K-9 Bob,” a dual purpose narcotic and patrol service dog, was put to the task of locating six different packages of seized funds hidden in various locations and rooms. K-9 Bob successfully sniffed out approximately $1 million in uncirculated currency, linking the seized funds to the

Million Dollar Sniff

narcotics investigation. The currency was entered into evidence and remains in the custody of the DEA Task Force. The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office has three deputy and two corrections canines. In addition to performing narcotics searches to aid in investigations, they also sniff out suspected drugs within the county correctional facilities, locate suspects and victims, and find evidence at or near crime scenes. K-9 Bob is a Belgian Malinois. He is 2.5 years old and has been with the Suffolk County Sheriff’s

Office since 2010. Sheriff Vincent DeMarco praised K-9 Bob for his abilities, and thanked his handler, Deputy Sheriff Greg Negra, for his work in this investigation. “Our K-9s provide important law enforcement services to the community, and to other policing jurisdictions. If a child ever goes missing or a dangerous suspect is on the loose, highly trained dogs like Bob are totally dedicated and thrive on success in whatever mission they are given.”

An unparalleled Queens high school legacy, an Olympic Gold medal, three NCAA Championships, and a highly successful professional basketball career could not mask the private demons, bouts of depression, and Chamique Holdsclaw’s eventual suicide attempt.

Ms. Holdsclaw will discuss her experiences with serious depression, which she shared in her recent book, Breaking Through: Beating The Odds Shot After Shot, when she serves as Keynote Speaker at the 20th Annual Mental Illness Awareness Day on Thursday, October 4th at

“Visits” ing door knocks, which led to spur-of-the-moment nature hikes and abductions to breakfast venues. The morning I moved away, June sent me off with a plate of delicate Finnish pancakes. I promised ongoing visits, and returned to their home for dinners, talks and bear hugs in their yellow-tiled foyer, year after year after year, for ten sweet years. Now, June and Ralph, the birds (and there’ve been generations of them), are regulars in my yard. Morning and evening, these crimson puppeteers use radar, charm and invisible marionette strings to pull me from the walnuts on my countertop to the back porch railing. They “chip chip chip” outside my bedroom window at dawn, flutter near the kitchen window while I

make coffee, and, when my car zips into the driveway, fly over the rooftop to wait out back for their nuts. The original Ralph snatched his walnut from the railing while June hid in a nearby branch, awaiting his return from market. Sometimes he’d snack on the steps before flying back to feed June, beak to beak. But once, and only once, in January 2006, the original June appeared calmly, right next to Ralph, on the steps. That was the afternoon I returned from the veterinarian after having to put my fifteen year-old cat to sleep. When I leaned against the back door window to gaze into the yard, there they were, en pair, like a protective hug. Back in 1974, at the conclusion of sixth grade, the class parents collected money

for a present for Ralph and June. Knowing full well that these super-teachers would use a gift certificate to enrich their classrooms instead of themselves, the moms decided to give them something concrete, to keep. They chose a statue of a nature scene, its wooden base inscribed: “To the Laakkonens, for total dedication, from your outdoor learning classes, 1973 - 1974.” Ralph and June did keep that statue, front and center, in the bay window of their house. After they died, I passed by one day when the house was being shown to buyers. The real estate agent allowed me to step into the yellow-tiled foyer and walk through the house one last time. It was empty, except for a few items awaiting cleanup by their grown children. Still there: the statue. Realizing it had no specif-

ic meaning to their kids, I called, asked, and was graciously given, after all those years, a gift I’d seen presented to beloved teachers when I was only just eleven. It’s in my home, now, in a place of honor. A statue of a nature scene: a mother cardinal, feeding her babies, taking care of the young. The same thing that’s happening in my yard, year after year after year. By now, the original Ralph and June cardinals have passed on. Their children, today’s Ralphs and Junes, have become progressively more comfortable with the back door/railing arrangement. Even the females. A few days ago, a new June fluttered midair, near the center panel of the nine-paned door, just twelve inches from me. While I opened up to place a walnut on one rail,

she watched from the other, and grabbed the nut before I’d even closed the door. I, like you, have suffered many losses. But I know (I do) that we really don’t leave each other. I believe that here, in life, we’re all out walking, on a great nature hike. The people who’ve died have “gone on ahead,” just a little further along up the trail. Of course, we’ll all get the chance, when the time is right, to “catch up.” While we’re here, though, our job (our joy) is to be who we really are, and to do what we really came to do. Like Ralph and June. And, on any good nature trail, while the people must travel it step after step, the birds are free to fly back and forth. And back again, for visits in time.

After my friends Ralph and June died within months of each other in 2003, a pair of cardinals appeared in my yard. Since they’d adored cardinals, and each Christmas sent cards depicting snowscapes lit by two tiny red birds, I named the rubyfeathered couple after them. Thereafter, the birds claimed a table at the finest outdoor restaurant in suburbia, and to this day, order the daily special: organic walnuts from Trader Joe’s. The human, June, first appeared in my life in 1973, as my sixth grade teacher, and two decades later, in 1994, as my cherished friend, when the Universe became a real estate broker, and placed me in an apartment right next door to her house. For eight months, I luxuriated in June and her husband Ralph’s Sunday-morn-

Legislator Rob Calarco was pleased to speak to local Latino youths at a luncheon held at J&R’s Steakhouse. The youths, all part of the Patchogue community and the Patchogue-Medford School District, are participants in the Life Through My Eyes Program sponsored by LILTA (Long Island Latino Teachers Association). The program is funded through a three-year grant secured from the W.K.Kellogg Foundation after the Marcello Lucero tragedy as part of the foundation’s Racial Healing Initiative.

The program involves participation of the youths’ parents and works to promote the skills, knowledge and experiences helpful in learning how to function positively and effectively within the community as well as to empower Latino youth in the Patchogue community to share their cultures and foster understanding. Participants attend workshops on conflict resolution, critical thinking, human rights, peace education and cultural events. Students are encouraged to produce short films depicting life

through their eyes. The films are then incorporated into lesson plans. The luncheon, a closing activity to the two-week summer-program component, allowed youths the opportunity to meet and ask questions of the leaders and business people within the Patchogue community. “I enjoyed speaking with these young people. They asked me all kinds of questions about becoming and being a legislator. They were bright, engaged, and eager to learn,” said Leg. Calarco.

Blood Drive Support For the second consecutive year, the New York Mets Baseball organization has joined forces with Bohemia’s Connetquot School District to encourage fans to donate blood to the Long Island Blood Services group. School District resident Mrs. Diana Badala served as Blood Drive Chairperson for the July 30th event, which was held at Connetquot H.S.

The New York Mets organization offered to provide a pair of game tickets to each person who donated for this special summer blood drive. Mrs. Badala expected that the number of donors would surpass the fifty that took part in last year’s summer blood drive. Mrs. Badala thanked the donors for their generous consideration of others, as well as those working the event, in particular Denise

Panebianco who proudly wore the tag ‘Person in Charge’! Participants were at least 16 years of age, and weighed at a minimum 110 pounds. The NY Mets organization will mail tickets to each donor, for a game at Citi Field, in August. Congratulations to Mrs. Badala and the Long Island Blood Services group for a job well done.

COMING EVENTS AROUND TOWN


University School of Medicine. Eager to begin their medical training, the new students recognized that they will have many challenges in medical school and felt excited about entering a career devoted to helping people. “As a child, I had two dreams, to become a professional soccer player and a doctor,” said Marshall Leonard, a Columbus, Ga., native who played Major League Soccer for six years after graduating from the University of Virginia with a BA in African & AfroAmerican Studies. “My focus and energy is now on medicine, and I am honored to be a member of the

Stony Brook Class of 2016.” Another athlete who expects to bring his passion for excellence from the playing field to medical clinics is Michael Coulter from Yorba Linda, Calif., who played quarterback for the Stony Brook Seawolves in 2011 graduated with a BS in Biochemistry. “I came to Stony Brook as an undergraduate because of its strong scientific reputation, the opportunity to play college football, and to study in a unique place away from home,” said Coulter. “I have observed the momentum of Stony Brook Medicine in recent years and am excited about the opportunities to study and

SUFFOLK ZONE 4 - NEIGHBOR NEWSPAPERS - WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 5, 2012

The Stony Brook University School of Medicine Class of 2016 officially entered the world of medical training on August 19 at the School’s traditional “White Coat” ceremony. All 124 students with varied educational and professional backgrounds and from 61 colleges and university nationwide put on their new physician-intraining white coat and took the Hippocratic Oath for the first time. Held at Stony Brook since 1998, the White Coat ceremony is an initiation rite for incoming medical students at established medical schools around the country. The white coat is symbolic to medicine as a profession based on professionalism, scientific excellence, responsibility, and compassionate care. To accommodate the growing medical needs and specialized care for the U.S. population, the Association of American Medical Colleges recognizes the need to train more physicians in coming years. “Wearing the white coat brings with it much responsibility, as a caregiver, problem-solver, scientist and communicator,” said Kenneth Kaushansky, MD, MACP., Senior Vice President for the Health Sciences, and Dean, School of Medicine. “I promise you, your path in medicine will never be dull, filled with opportunities to help transform the lives of countless patients. The Class of 2016 comes to Stony Brook equipped with a myriad of talents, interests, humanity and academic success, all of which will serve you well in your medical journey that starts with your Stony Brook Medicine white coat.” During the ceremony, Stony Brook University School of Medicine also recognized its 2012 Distinguished Alumnus – Dr. Douglas S. Katz, ’90, Director of Body Imaging and Vice Chair for Clinical Research and Education at Winthrop-University Hospital, and Professor of Clinical Radiology at Stony Brook

contribute to the institution as a medical student. I know I will be challenged and stretched to my capacity, thus making me the best physician possible.” Following a traditional route based on scientific research and education, Michelle Mo, from Berkeley Heights, N.J., who has a BA in Biology from Washington University, and a MS and PhD in Pharmacology from Yale University, will expand her scientific expertise to include patient care as a physician-scientist when she completes medical school. “The idea of becoming a physician-scientist so I can continue to conduct research in areas related to biomarkers of disease, plus combine that with new skills as a clinician, is an exciting prospect for making an immediate impact on patients’ lives,” said Mo. Eve Feinberg, a native Long Islander who grew up in Rockville Center, took a circuitous route to pursuing medicine. Most recently, Feinberg was a theatre artist and set designer with a BA and MFA in Theatre from Barnard College and the University of Maryland, respectively. Feinberg said that the great attention to detail, organization, and human ingenuity involved in the theatre arts is not unlike that developed in successful hospital settings. “I took a non-linear path to medicine, and that process taught me to understand myself and prepared me to begin a life-long commitment to medicine,” said Feinberg, who also overcame visual impairment as a child and young adult before deciding to become a doctor. In 2012 the School of Medicine received an all-time high of 4,918 applicants. Among the 124 incoming students, their cumulative grade point average is 3.7 on a scale of 4.0. Two of the most common undergraduate schools attended by the incoming class were Stony Brook University (22) and Cornell University (8).

Online Car Shopping

(NAPSI)—You may be able to find a great used car online—if you heed a few hints: • You can search millions of used cars for sale online if you go to sites like Autotrader.com and Cars.com. • To narrow your search, consider and compare price, photos of the cars and their descriptions. • Consider the seller. Is the person or company reputable? Is it a dealer or a private seller? If it’s the latter, has this person been recommended to you by someone you know and trust? • Before you buy any used car, it’s a good idea to check the vehicle’s history with a Carfax Vehicle History Report. These can help you make better decisions about used cars. Visit www.carfax.com to get a report and learn more.

ADVOCATE HONORED - Members of the Islip Town Board recently honored Heather McNamara for her dedication to promoting awareness of life-threatening diseases.

She was the first child in the world to undergo such a procedure. As a result of having her pancreas removed, Heather now confronts juvenile diabetes. Despite these hardships Heather continues to raise awareness in our community for childhood diseases, and her work has been an inspiration to those around her.

He builds on his experience and talent in both fields to provide popular cooking entertainment that appeals to a wide audience, while revealing secrets of the heroic firefighter lifestyle. Everyone loves a fireman, not to mention a good meal!
