You never know what you might find when cleaning out the closet. I recently came across a handful of those origami-type, square and triangle-folded notes that we all used to exchange like crazy back in middle school. I remember writing dozens upon dozens of them and slipping them through the vents of my friends’ lockers between classes, then excitedly waiting for them to write back so I would have my own “mail� to look forward to the next time I stopped at my own locker. How funny. It’s too bad I didn’t save them all, as I’m sure they would have made for some fascinating reading all these

years later. Notes full of class schedules, song lyrics, lists of boys we had crushes on‌the usual pre-teen drama that seemed oh-soimportant at the time. We even developed our own language of sorts, with abbreviations and symbols that (so we thought) only we could comprehend. Such innocence. And then there were the “loveâ€? letters, those cute little poems surrounded by lots of hearts and x’s and o’s, and of course the requisite “A.A.F.â€? signifying the “always and foreverâ€? mentality that all 12 year-olds seem to have with regard to “love.â€? As corny as it all sounds now, there was definitely an underlying sweetness to those types of notes, a sense that somehow, with that

scrawled message of affection, everything was “official.� It’s a wonder, thinking back on it, how any of us managed to get any work done in between composing these little nuggets of wisdom – because you know they all had to be written during class time. After all, how else to make sure our friends were continuously updated on our comings and goings from the last 40 minute class! So many memories encapsulated by those little folded pieces of paper. A slice of life, preserved for all eternity on an 8-1/2 x 11-inch piece of loose-leaf paper. It doesn’t get any better than that. Can’t wait to see what other treasures my closet will uncover.

Rockin’ For Autism


Professor of Pediatrics & Psychiatry at Stony Brook University School of Medicine, Head of Division of Developmental Disabilities, and Founding Director of The Cody Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities at Stony Brook Children’s Long Island Children’s Hospital. He has served as Director of The Cody Center since its opening in 2001 and joined Stony Brook as the first faculty member in the Division of Child Psychiatry. In 1997, Dr. Pomeroy formed the Division of Developmental Disabilities within the Psychiatry Department at Stony Brook in collaboration with Lynda Geller, PhD. In 2001, with major philanthropic and University support,

including a gift of $2.5 million from Matt and Debra Cody of Port Jefferson, NY, The Cody Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities opened with Dr. Pomeroy serving as its Director. The Cody Center is now a division of the Department of Pediatrics at Stony Brook Long Island Children’s Hospital. “John has led a rapid expansion of clinical and community services for Autism and developmental disabilities at Stony Brook,” said Margaret McGovern, MD, PhD, Professor and Chairman, Department of Pediatrics, Stony Brook University School of Medicine, and Physician-in-Chief, Stony Brook Long Island Children’s Hospital. “Not

only is he a leader in his clinical field, he has been an outstanding public servant and advocate for children with autism.” Dr. Pomeroy’s interest in the broader diagnostic concept of autism dates back to projects he began as a resident at the University of Iowa. In 1984, he received the J. Franklin Robinson Award from the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. He has been the author of more than 70 articles, abstracts and book chapters, with an emphasis on two fields of interest: (1) diagnostic sub-typing of the autism spectrum and (2) the diagnosis and treatment of emotional/ behavioural disorders in individuals with cognitive or developmental

disabilities. In addition to his research interests, he has developed a broad range of clinical and training programs. In the 1990s, he received funding from New York State to develop a continuum of psychiatric care for dually diagnosed (MH/ MR) individuals on Long Island, and for a fellowship training program for child and adolescent psychiatrists to specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of individuals with dual diagnosis. More recently, he served as a principal collaborator in the formation of the Downstate Center of Excellence for Dual Diagnosis, a consortium of 30 agencies created to enhance staff training and

Stony Brook University autism expert John C. Pomeroy, M.D, received the 2013 Public Service Award from the New York Suffolk County Martin Luther King Jr. Commission at its 22nd Annual Awards Luncheon on January 18th at the Hyatt Regency in Hauppauge. Dr. Pomeroy was honored for his work with special needs children, said Florence Joyner, chairperson of the luncheon. “He has worked tirelessly to develop services for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders at Stony Brook and advocated for the local development of school programs and improved clinical services,” she said.

expertise in recognition and management of mental disorders in persons with mental retardation or developmental disabilities. Initial funding was provided by the New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council. Dr. Pomeroy received his medical degree from the University of London in 1973. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. In 2009, he was named 2009 Health Care Professional of the year by the Mental Health Association in Suffolk County and received the Physician of Distinction award from the Nassau Physicians Foundation.

Weddings are typically expensive affairs. Couples may be willing to go the extra mile and stretch their finances for their big day, but what about their guests? Couples ask much of their out-of-town wedding guests, who must arrange for travel and lodging and possibly even childcare if they are bringing young children. Because traveling to a wedding can be such a costly expenditure, many couples look for ways to alleviate some of the financial pressure that this travel places on their guests. The following are a few ways couples can do just that.

How To Help Guests Save On Travel

* Find an airport-friendly wedding destination. Couples who can get married within a short distance of a major airport can save their guests a significant amount of money. A major airport has more flights, and that can translate to more options and more affordable flights for your guests. In addition, a wedding destination that is close to an airport reduces the chance that guests will have to pay for rental cars. A cab ride to the hotel might be less expensive than a rental car, which guests may not need aside from getting to and from the airport. * Inquire about group airline rates. Couples know to negotiate group hotel rates for their wedding guests, but few may know it’s possible to negotiate group airline rates as well. If a large number of your wedding guests will be traveling from the same city, contact the major airlines to see if they offer group travel discounts. Many airlines do, so comparison shop to find your guests the best deal.

* Consider a longer engagement. A longer engagement can save your guests money on travel. Couples who choose to have a longer engagement and send savethe-date cards out early are giving their guests more time to book flights and find deals. Flights tend to be less expensive when booked well in advance, so a longer engagement gives guests more time to find a flight that’s affordable. In addition, travelers who can book early often get the first crack at the best flight times, saving themselves the nuisance of taking a red-eye flight or traveling early in the morning.

What would a wedding day be without flowers? The beauty and the aroma of fresh-cut flowers can create a welcoming atmosphere and complement the beauty and the style of a wedding wardrobe. Flowers are often the first things that guests see upon arriving for the ceremony, and they may even be something guests take home at the end of the night. Flowers create an air of romance, and most couples want to make flowers -whether fresh or silk -- an integral part of their wedding day. As with any decision when planning a wedding, choosing the right flowers requires some research and a basic knowledge of which flowers will convey the message and the theme of your wedding. The number of colors, textures and combinations that can be created are so numerous that couples may feel the decision on the floral arrangements is best left to the florist. But it doesn’t take a lot of expertise to know what you want, and it is important for couples to convey their feelings to the florist. Consider these tips when choosing a florist and selecting flowers. * Experts advise that a couple start looking for a florist at least six months before t h e wedding, especially if the wedding will take p l a c e during the peak season of May

through September. Get recommendations from friends as to which florist they used or find out if your wedding planner or banquet hall manager recommends a particular florist. Some catering halls have agreements with florists, and they work together. * Browse magazines to get ideas of what you like. You also may be able to find a florist through an advertisement or if he or she has been featured in publications. Keep a scrapbook of the colors, types of flowers and arrangements and any other ideas that attract you so you will be able to present this information to the florist. * Establish your flower budget prior to sitting down with the florist. You should expect to pay at least 8 percent of the total wedding cost on flowers. Get an estimate on the floral arrangement and then tweak your needs according to your budget. Many florists can modify arrangements and find a middle ground with regard to cost. Selecting flowers that are in-season will result in more affordable rates than if you desire exotic or out-of-season blooms. * Once you’ve hired the florist, you can come up with a wedding flower worksheet that establishes all of your needs. The florist may ask for specific information, such as photos of the bride’s gown as well as the colors and styles that the wedding party will be wearing. A good florist knows that a bouquet should not overpower or detract from the beauty of the bride. The florist may want to mimic textures from the dress, such as beading, with smaller flowers or berries within the arrangement. The groom’s boutonniere is traditionally one of the flowers from the bride’s bouquet so that the look is cohesive. * Ceremony flowers may be traditional, and some houses of worship have strict guidelines as to what can and cannot be used. However, reception flowers can be where you show off your creativity and whimsy. After all, this is a party and it should be fun. You may want to give the florist more freedom of expression with regard to reception centerpieces and flowers that adorn other areas of the room. *

Because receptions tend to take place in the evening hours and are often indoor affairs, experts say that added lighting may be needed to put emphasis on the floral centerpieces and help present them in their best light. You may want to think about hiring a lighting designer to spotlight some areas of the

open fully. Minimize changes close to your wedding date as most things will already be started.

* To give the impression that there are more flowers than there really are, use fragrance and filler as your tools. Fragrant flowers can fill up the room with a welcoming aroma. Look for frangipani, lilies, hyacinths, jasmine, and sweet peas for a big impact. Florists know how to stretch arrangements by using greenery and other filler to lend bulk without too much extra cost.

* It is possible to make your own centerpieces or bouquets if you so desire. Simplicity will work best for the novice. Think about grouping similarhued calla lilies together for a bridal bouquet. Hydrangea and peonies are larger flowers that can easily fill up a vessel on a table as a centerpiece. White flowers will coordinate with any color scheme and could be the easiest to mix and match. White blooms include sweet pea, rose, camellia, stephanotis, narcissus, gardenia, orchid, lily of the valley, jasmine, and gypsophila.

*Experienced florists will know how long it takes certain buds to open and show off their maximum beauty. Therefore, expect a florist to be working on your floral arrangements as much as a week before the wedding date -- purchasing containers, cleaning flowers and waiting for certain ones to

Best Man & Maid Of Honor Roles

Being chosen as a best man or a maid of honor is a significant and meaningful honor. Those roles have evolved over the years, but these special participants must still perform some of the traditional duties of the past, including serving as the official witnesses to the ceremony. The following is a rundown of the various duties maids of honor and best men are now expected to handle once they’re chosen for these distinguished honors.

Prior To The Wedding Before the wedding takes place, the maid of honor will closely assist the brideto-be with many of the important decisions related to the look and the feel of the wedding. She typically accompanies the bride to dress shops to select gowns for the bride and bridesmaids. Much in the same manner, the best man will assist

the groom-to-be with choosing tuxedoes or suits and also with coordinating with the ushers to ensure they know when to go for fittings. Although the best man will serve as a sounding board for the groom, traditionally the bride and her bridesmaids have taken on the majority of the wedding planning, so the maid of honor can expect to play a larger role than the best man. The maid of honor may be asked to delegate certain assignments, such as helping to find wedding vendors or addressing invitations. She may go with the bride for makeup and hairstyle trials. Together with the bridesmaids, she will plan a bridal shower party and a bachelorette excursion. She may select a wedding gift for the couple and present it on behalf of all the wedding attendants. The best man will coordinate the

bachelor party and may be asked and stands during the ceremony. Both will to assist the groom with selecting a sign the marriage certificate as witnesses.

Inspired By Kate Middleton, Brides Choose Classic Jewelry

Carol McDonald Photography

800-Woodloch (Opt. 7) | Woodloch.com/Weddings 250489N0130

Ever since Kate Middleton walked down the aisle at Westminster Abbey in her fabulous fitted gown and crystal teardrop earrings, brides everywhere have been emulating her classic, elegant style. Fashion jewelry leader CAROLEE quickly named its popular version of the earring “The Kate” -- and at $32 it’s within reach of elegant brides in every price range. “Throughout 2011, brides from Kate Middleton to Hollywood celebrities chose very classic styling for their jewelry,” said Jill Maier, Vice President of Design at CAROLEE. “We’re with them on that level, and we have an extensive collection of beautiful designer crystal and pearl bridal jewelry to suit the tastes of today’s discerning brides.” Ms. Maier has these tips for brides who want to look royal -- British or American style: - Choose crystal and pearl styles that are distinctive yet not overwhelming in scale - Balance the proportions of your earrings and necklace. If your earrings and necklace “match,” keep them close

in size with each other. Or if you choose major chandelier earrings, scale down your necklace or don’t wear one and make the wrist a focal point. - Bracelets are an important bridal accessory, and they look great worn in multiples -- stacks of crystal bangles, mixes of decorative floral pearl and crystal links, or a combination of bangles and links. To find a full range of elegant and affordable bridal jewelry, go to CAROLEE.com. Use code Metro12 and receive 20 percent off your purchase.

Tips For Writing Your Own Vows A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event for many couples, so brides and grooms wish for the event to be momentous and memorable. As such, couples are increasingly integrating personal nuances into their ceremonies and receptions to tailor weddings to their unique visions. The desire to include personalized wedding vows continues to be a popular trend. If you are considering personalized wedding vows, first realize that it may not be a simple task. That’s because you want the message conveyed to be dear to your heart, and that can be challenging when faced with the pressures and planning of the rest of the wedding. That isn’t to say that writing your own vows is impossible. Here are some guidelines for personalizing your ceremony with your own sentiments. Schedule Time For Writing Amid the bustle of dress fittings and interviews with photographers, it can be easy to put off the important task of writing vows for another day. But as any great writer can attest, it takes

writing - and rewriting - to achieve a finished product you can be proud of. Give the task of writing your vows your undivided attention. Mark it in on your calendar or set a reminder on your computer just as you would any other appointment. Be Aware Of Ceremony Guidelines It is best to check with your officiant and confirm that personalized wedding vows are allowed. During civil ceremonies it’s often acceptable to customize vows as you see fit. However, during religious ceremonies there may be lines of scripture that need to be read or certain passages required. Before you spend hours working on the task, be sure that it is allowed and that your spouse and you are on the same page. Jot Down Your Feelings Answer some questions about what marriage means to you and how you feel about your spouse. Try to avoid trite sayings and think from your heart and personal experiences. Think about what is the most important thing you want to promise to your future partner.

Winter Concert

On Thursday evening, December 20th, Mr. Jon-Michael Lasher, Connetquot School District Director of Fine Arts & Music Education, welcomed an enthusiastic full house to the district’s annual Winter Concert. Held at the Eric Martinsen Auditorium on the Connetquot HS campus, the event showcased the talents of the school’s Wind Ensemble, Treble Choir, Symphony Orchestra and Concert Choir. The event also provided an opportunity for a traditional reunion of Concert Choir graduates, several of whom sang on this same stage back as far back as 1968! According to Mr. Lasher, “The Connetquot Music Department celebrated it’s 50 year anniversary by inviting alumni to participate in this year’s concert. These alumni from the 1960’s to 2012 joined old, and made new, friends as they joined the Concert Choir on their

Finale’ performance of Handel’s Messiah.” As the alumni were called up on stage Lasher asked several to introduce themselves, including their graduation year. Many of the ‘senior’ alumni were cheered on by their spouses, and children, as they prepared for their ‘encore’ performance! “As a 1992 Connetquot graduate, and now district Director of Fine Arts, I am so proud to help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of this wonderful school” said Lasher. “Over the years there have been hundreds of outstanding performances and shows in this auditorium. We are proud to have so many of our students go on to wonderful music, and acting, careers upon graduation. It is a credit to the talent, community support and wonderful instructors that have helped create this level of pride in our students.” Connetquot Board of Education Trustee Mrs. Kim Pepe was on

hand to congratulate the students, and directors, for this outstanding 50th Anniversary Winter Concert. Mr. Lasher expressed his thanks to the following directors and accompanists for their efforts to make this Winter Concert so special: Mr. Gregory Johnson, Mrs. Elizabeth Owens, Mrs. Jenna Micalizzi, Mr. Peter Coffin, Mr. Brad Drinkwater, Mr. James Nagle. He also thanked the stage crew for their support. The Connetquot community looks forward to the music department’s continued growth, and determination to make it, and our students, among the best in the country.

GUARDIAN OF SMALL BUSINESS - On January 24th, Senator Lee M.

High school students enrolled in the Eastern Suffolk BOCES Early Childhood Education (ECE) special career education program at the Islip Career Center (ICC) in Oakdale recently toured the Connetquot Public Library located on Ocean Avenue in Bohemia with Children’s Librarian Kristin Davis. She enhanced their knowledge about library offerings and advised them of the abundant resources available to them as future caregivers and teachers. Before taking a tour of the library, the ESBOCES students sat through a presentation given by Children’s Librarian Kristin Davis. They also familiarized themselves with age appropriate children’s books. Seated: Michelle M., Sachem CSD, Elizabeth R., Longwood CSD, Anthony C., Middle Country CSD, ESBOCES ECE Teacher Gini Wagner, and Sabrina S., Sachem CSD. Standing: Connetquot Public Library Children’s Librarian Kristin Davis, ESBOCES Teacher Assistant Mrs. Jean Rogers, Aryana S., Islip UFSD, Laura J., Islip UFSD, Annie G., Sachem CSD, Kate-Lynn N., Connetquot CSD, Brooke P., Sachem CSD, Leighann S., Connetquot CSD, and Individual Aide Ms. Nicole. The Early Childhood Education program is designed to prepare students for careers as teachers or child care providers. ECE Teacher

Gina Wagner said, “It’s important that the students get comfortable using the library. This is about career awareness. Whether they secure jobs as teachers, teacher assistants, caregivers, or nannies, they should know how to access books and the other resources libraries offer.” They learned that everyone can benefit from the varied resources and most of them are free. Knowing the difference between age-appropriate books, like picture books and chapter books is important. Ms. Wagner said, “Suppose they get a position as a teacher assistant and are asked to create a craft or read a story to preschoolers. They need to know where to find that in a library. They need a real book.” The library is a great place to gain access to the Internet and learn how to use technology too. It’s a gathering place and a social place. It’s a place to go to get out of the house and away from the TV set. Librarian Ms. Davis (seated) demonstrated the computer capabilities and advised the students about the technology available to them at the Connetquot Public Library. ESBOCES students standing around Ms. Davis are: Leighann S., Connetquot CSD, Brooke P., Sachem CSD, Annie G., Sachem CSD, Anthony C., Middle Country CSD, and Sabrina S., Sachem CSD. Ms. Wagner said, “I tell my students that they can bring a younger sibling

or a parent to the library. They can get access to a computer that they may not have at home. They can read books, hear music, participate in a workshop, or learn to paint. They can even watch a movie or play games on a computer.” The programs and services that libraries offer for children, teens, adults, and seniors appear in their newsletters. The Connetquot Public Library boasts a 12-page newsletter that can be accessed via their website http://www. connetquotlibrary.org/ or hard copies are available at the library. The tour of the library was an invaluable experience for the students especially when they were advised that they can enhance their resume, gain experience, and community service credits by volunteering at some libraries.
