In celebration of Women’s History Month, Legislator Sarah Anker honored Empire State Development Director Andrea Lohneiss and Networking Magazine Founder and Publisher Christine Conniff Sheahan at the March 19th General Meeting of the Suffolk County Legislature. “Christine and Andrea serve as true role models and mentors to many women, including myself,” said Legislator Anker. “Their successes, both professionally and personally, are a testimony to the accomplished roles women have achieved in business and government.” As the Long Island Regional Director of Empire State Development, Andrea has worked to promote economic growth in both Nassau and Suffolk County. She applies her invaluable background in community development and knowledge of economic policy to implement successful business expansion projects. Since 1991, through her publication Networking Magazine, Christine Conniff Sheahan has provided outstanding coverage on women’s issues. In addition, she has demonstrated her commitment to the progress of women, social causes and environmental stewardship. The magazine has featured influential women who have made great strides on behalf of women’s equality,

including Kirsten Gillibrand, Madeline Albright and Gloria Steinem. A special section entitled “What’s Green,” provides information about environmental issues and offers a network for local businesses. Networking Magazine has received a number of awards and recognition including, the National Council on Women’s Health Making a Difference through Media Award. Women’s History Month is an annual worldwide declared month that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society.

offenders is to ensure they are prepared and have sustainable employment. This first of its kind job fair sponsored by Suffolk County is opening the doors to the ex-offender community and allowing potential employers access to an employable pool of personnel.” The Re-Entry job fair also hosted career preparation seminars, workshops and discussion groups including: Interviewing Skills, Resume Development, and Employment Incentive Information. One of the highlights of the event was the success stories shared by ex-offenders. The stories of the exoffenders were compelling and inspiring as they talked about their pursuits of higher education and their desire to turn their

lives around. Many spoke about the need to have a positive support network to help them through the process of returning to a productive life as an upstanding citizen. One of the participating companies shared with the Department of Labor, “I was very glad I attended Monday’s event. I am hoping to be able to employ at least a few of the candidates now, and possibly more individuals in the same circumstance, in the future.” Thank you for the opportunity,” Thomas Humphreys. Suffolk County plans to host the Re-Entry job fair at least once a year but based on responses from employment companies and participants will consider more frequent Re-Entry job fairs.

A Special Thank You...

I just wanted to convey my many thanks to the good samaritan who helped me rescue my dog on Carlls Path in Deer Park one morning (either March 18th or 19th of this year). I have a six month-old Border Collie who I walk every morning before I go to work. We take the same route every morning and, along one of the side streets we walk, his leash broke and he took off. I had just come out of the hospital and was in no condition to chase him; besides, they are one of the fastest running dogs there is! After screaming his name and not knowing what else I could do, I stopped a car and hysterically told the good samaritan that I needed help getting my dog. This person drove down the street to where “Noah” was, stopped the car and coaxed Noah to come “say hello.” Being the friendly dog that he is, he obliged and the person was able to grab him and wait for me to pantingly get down the street. This wonderful person put us (Noah and I) in the car and drove us home. This good samaritan even carried Noah into the house for me because I had no leash to put on him at the moment. This person would not give me their name or address or anything. I wish I could see the person again, but in the meantime, many many many thanks for bringing “my world” back to me.

Bracelets For A Cause

Students in Special Education Teacher Mindy Speichler’s class at the ESBOCES Brookhaven Learning Center (BLC) @ Samoset Middle School in the Sachem CSD wanted to raise money for the Sandy victims. As a class project, Concrete they decided to make Concrete was invented beaded bracelets. by the Ancient Romans. They worked hard creating over 500

handmade beaded bracelets. They chose the colors, mixed them together, and assembled them for a good cause. Their efforts raised $420 for Sandy victims in need. Ms. Speichler said, “During this project, the students showed an interest in working as a team. We saw an increase in collaboration and

socialization as they shared materials and creative ideas.” ESBOCES Occupational Therapist Laura Donovan said, “The students worked at their highest level of independence.

400 By: Jamie Lynn Ryan Last week, out of sheer curiosity, I decided to go through my column archive to see just how many I had published up to this point. Wouldn’t you know, last week marked #399, making this week’s column quite a mini-milestone. Nearly eight years of writing In Step… wow, time sure does fly. In honor of the occasion, I thought I’d resurrect my very first column, published July 27th, 2005… Living The Dream As I write these words, the calendar has flipped to exactly one year, two months and eleven days since my graduation from C.W. Post on May 9th, 2004. At that time, never could I have imagined that I would soon be working for the very newspaper I had grown up reading as a lifelong resident of Lindenhurst. And yet here I am; an editor and sometimes writer for none other

than South Bay’s Neighbor. The majority of college graduates I have come into contact with seem to all have the same lofty, if materialistic, goal – to become rich and famous doing… well, anything that comes along. If it happens to be even remotely related to that field which they studied through four years of school, that’s a mere bonus. So long as the money comes rolling in, cash-flow and happiness are seemingly one and the same. I, on the other hand, have always ascribed to a much more simplistic, if perhaps slightly idealistic, principle – I feel as long as I am fortunate enough to make a decent living doing something I truly love and have genuine talent in, then why shouldn’t I be content going to work each and every day? Fast forward from my graduation through a year of highs and lows, from voluntarily taking four months off to enjoy “my last official summer vacation

ever,” as I relentlessly reminded all who would listen, to involuntarily remaining unemployed – save for my part-time jobs at The Little Flower Shop and Diane’s Dance Center - through eight more months of fruitless job searching. And then, at long last, the light at the end of the tunnel…a call from South Bay’s Neighbor, willing to give a Journalism grad a shot with their ever-expanding newspaper. Imagine that, an opportunity to gain experience in the field instead of being turned away for my lack of it. How exactly is one supposed to gain any semblance of hands-on expertise if no one will give him/her an opportunity to shine? At some point along the way, someone has to take a chance on you. How lucky I am that South Bay’s Neighbor decided to take a chance on me. I began my first full week of work on May 9th, 2005, exactly one year to the day after I graduated from college. I guess some things are just meant to be.

WE NOW HAVE GLUTEN FREE PIZZA & PASTA

“FAMILY STYLE” TO GO

Save Time & Money With This Affordable New Take-Out Special All Sizes Come With Choice Of Tossed Salad OR Caesar Salad, Our Delicious Homemade Garlic Rolls & Any 3 Of The Following Main Dishes: On Thursday evening, February 28th, a Connetquot School District All-Star contingent of principals, teachers, secretaries and paras joined forces to play basketball against the world famous Harlem Wizards! Led by EJ Bosti Principal Dr. Lisa Ihne, Connetquot HS Principal Greg Murtha, Cherokee Principal Bridgette Wilson, Idle Hour Principal Denise Toscano and OBMS Principal Sue Coleman, the T-Birds dribbled, shot, but mostly laughed, as they played this traveling troupe of professional comedian/ athletes. Among the most active cheering fans were Board of Education President Dawn Berntsen and Trustee Leo Marinick. A loud, laughing, crowd, estimated at close to 800,

consisted of students, parents, school staff and just plain basketball fans who filled the Connetquot HS gym to capacity. It was SRO (standing room only) by the time the ball went up to start the game. Sponsored by the Bosti Parent-Teacher Association, this proceeds of this fun night would provide the funding needed so ‘… the kids can get everything they need, despite proposed budget cuts’, as one parent said. The Harlem Wizards are celebrating their 50th Anniversary, and from the reaction of this Connetquot crowd, it’s easy to see why fans look forward to watching these great showmen in action. The Wizards were led by 6’7” Tojo (Claude Henderson), 6’4” ‘Downtown’ Derek

Braxton, Jr., and 6’8” ‘Big J’ (John Smith). Tojo said that “The we combine preplanned comedy routines that keep the youngsters laughing”, as the Wizards players go into the crowd to bring youngsters onto the court to join in the fun. Dr. Lisa Ihne, Principal of the EJ Bosti Elementary School extended her thanks to all the members of the community that took part in the game, all the wonderful fans for their support, with special thanks to the dedicated members of the school’s PTA. Dr. Ihne was also heard to whisper at the end of the game: “We may have lost tonight’s game against the Wizards, but we will practice to get ready for a win, next time!”

As part of its continuing partnership, the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center (CCMC) of New York and Kohl’s Department Stores are teaming up to inspire families to develop creative, nutritious, and kid-friendly recipes. With the understanding that cooking with children is a great way to promote healthy eating habits, the Iron Chef Cook-Off is now underway! Here’s how it works: Recipes can be entered by going to www. kohlshealthykidsny.com/ RecipesContest/IronChef. A parent or legal guardian.. not the child…may submit recipes from their child (between the ages of 5-17).

Childlike Mornings By: Gene McParland, North Babylon Sometimes morning comes softly, like a small child tip-toeing quietly into your bed. These are the best of awakenings. Mornings seems more comfortable, like that small child snuggling by your side. Your morning coffee is just right When looking at a smiling face and loving eyes across the table from you, even if this picture is only in the mind’s eye. On such a morning evening seems a million miles away, winging its way gently on the wings of a dove returning to nest for night.

Long Island Reads is an island-wide reading initiative sponsored by the Nassau Library System and the Public Libraries of Suffolk County. Each year, a committee of librarians chooses a book that was written by a Long Island author and/or set on Long Island. Book lovers in Nassau and Suffolk come together to read the book, participate in discussions, and enjoy related events in their public libraries. Sutton, the book selection for 2013, is a fictionalized account of one of the most notorious, romantic, and enigmatic criminals of the 20th century. It tells a story of economic pain that feels eerily modern, while unfolding a story of doomed love that is forever timeless. Author J.R. Moehringer will appear at the Long Island Reads author talk and book signing at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library at 999 Old

Teens And The Internet: Tips For Playing It Safe

(NAPSI)-It’s easy for teens to pretend they’re older than they are online, but it doesn’t mean they’re ready for anything the Internet can tharow at them. By monitoring and engaging teens about their online activity, parents can help them exercise self-control, report problems—and make smarter, safer decisions. Even the best kids from the most loving families take risks and get carried away when socializing or gossiping with friends— and they don’t want you to know about it. Did You Know? • 65 percent of high school students admit to unsafe or illegal activities online. • 30 percent of teens have talked with a cyberstranger about meeting in person. • 32 percent clear the

browser history to hide online activity from their parents. • 64 percent post photos or videos of themselves online. • 73 percent use social networking websites. Tips for Reducing Risky Behaviors Be proactive. Don’t wait for a crisis to happen before addressing online safety. Remind your teen about rules and consequences, and stay engaged in the process. Other tips include: • Explore the Internet together. • Enforce ground rules and time limits. • Become their friend on social networking sites. • Learn about privacy settings and set them appropriately. • Trust but verify by installing monitoring software on their computer.

Trust, Monitor, Educate, Protect Knowing what they’re doing online is as easy as checking your own e-mail, with remote monitoring software such as eBlaster from SpectorSoft. It can inform you of searches for topics such as “depression” or “drugs.” It can also warn you if others are teasing them or daring your child to GNOC (get naked on camera). Whether you’re at home or at work, you receive e-mail reports and instant notification if they’re visiting inappropriate websites, spending too much time on Facebook or taking risks. For More Information To learn more, parents can visit www. SpectorSoftSoftware. com.

New Benefits May Help Keep Seniors Healthier (NAPSI)—Staying healthy just got a little easier if you’re 65 or older. That’s because Medicare now covers many wellness and preventive services free of charge. Older Americans can get important screenings, immunizations and an annual “wellness” checkup without spending a dime, under provisions in the Affordable Care Act that took effect in January 2011. “These services have the potential to add years to your life-and the life of your loved ones,” said AARP board member and geriatric specialist William J. Hall, M.D. “We urge older Americans to get all the preventive services their doctors recommend.” For the first time, Medicare will pay entirely for a host of vital screenings-for colon and other cancers, diabetes,

heart disease, osteoporosis and other chronic conditions. On top of that, Medicare now covers a yearly “wellness” exam that can spotlight steps you need to take to take charge of your health. As part of this checkup, you can work with your doctor on developing your own prevention plan. These new benefits can make a difference in people’s lives, because they enable older Americans to get the preventive care they need without worrying about cost. Research has shown that individuals are less likely to get health screenings when they have to pay for them. Many older Americans have not been getting important preventive services, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For example, millions of older

people at risk for diabetes and colorectal cancer have not been screened for those illnesses. Similarly, millions of older Americans have not received a vaccine for pneumococcal disease, even though research shows that the risk of developing the diseases increases with age and the presence of chronic conditions. When it comes to staying well, most people know they should eat right, get exercise and keep their weight in check. Now, many can add a new item to the list by taking advantage of Medicare’s new benefits for preventive services. Such services could save your life.

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.

Commended

and skis and heading out for a pancake breakfast in Vermont because that’s where you find the best maple syrup. Principal Carolynn Hansen aka “Hawaiian Queen Liliuokalani” surrounded by students from PLC at the West Middle Island Elementary School in the Longwood CSD. The students ventured off to Hawaii on the last day of their virtual trip. What a surprise for Principal Carolynn Hansen when she was bestowed the title Hawaiian Queen Liliuokalani. Amazingly, Ms. Hansen had an authentic

traditional Hawaiian dress in her magic wardrobe. Queen Liliuokalani aka Ms. Hansen engaged the students in an artful project making flower leis. There was a plethora of pineapples for the picking and eating. No virtual pineapples this time - they were real and delicious! The trip to Hawaii ended with the students listening to traditional Hawaiian music and learning to hula dance. The Common Core Standards accompanied the students on their trip. It may have been a virtual trip but in reality, they learned so much and never left the classroom.

At the February 26th meeting of the Connetquot School District Board of Education (BOE), Assistant Superintendent Dr. Peggie S. Staib, on behalf of the BOE, commended several students for their achievements as part of the district’s Fine Arts & Music Department. The meeting was moved from the Central Office to the Sycamore Avenue Elementary School in anticipation of a larger community presence. Mr. Jon-Michael Lasher, Connetquot CSD Director

Is it possible to go on vacation, travel the globe, and never leave your classroom? It is if you are a student at the Eastern Suffolk BOCES Premm Learning Center (PLC) at the West Middle Island Elementary School in the Longwood CSD. The great in-school vacation week began in Florida. The students strapped on their Mickey Mouse ears and navigated their way around a virtual Disney. This was a great opportunity for them to use their map skills. The next day, students were pulling on virtual snowboards
