Long Island Opera’s singers hail the United States, Colombia, France, Italy, Mexico, Germany and Russia, and have performed with national and international opera companies including the Metropolitan Opera, Houston Opera, LA Opera, New York City Opera, and at various festivals throughout the United States. “We are very excited about the talent we have this season,” said Long Island Opera’s Executive Director Joy Berta. Long Island Opera, which incorporated as a 501(c)3 in 1961 and recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, is the oldest opera company in existence on Long Island. In the beginning, Long Island Opera performed a handful of operas throughout Nassau County but by the mid1980s its repertory had flourished and Long

Island Opera acquired the props, sets and costumes, along with scores to over two-dozen operas and operettas. In August 2009, Berta, an opera singer herself joined the company as Executive Director with the ultimate goal of bringing captivating, high-quality, fully-staged operas back to Long Island. Over the last four years, Berta has dedicated her time and talent to revive the company, promoting, organizing and producing performances throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties in an effort to bring opera back to Long Island. “We want Long Islanders to share with us the wonderful experience of live opera performances right here on Long Island,” said Berta adding, “We understand our audience is key to our success. It is their support, patronage, and enthusiasm that will help us thrive as Long Island’s Opera company.” Long Island Opera’s 2012-2013 season will also include performances of

Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto on October 6th and Giacomo Puccini’s La Boheme, featuring the Children’s Orchestra Society, on April 7th, 2013 at Molloy College’s Madison Theatre in Rockville Centre. “Long Islanders don’t have to travel to the city to experience great opera,” Berta said. “We are bringing live opera performances to Long Island with an increased vitality and energy for Long Islanders to enjoy through this magnificent art form.” She added, “With every performance, our goal is to captivate the audience; we tell the stories the great composers intend us to experience through their music.” Tickets for Carmen are $75 (limited VIP reserved seating and pre-show wine reception); $35 (orchestra); $25 (balcony) and $10-$15 (student). Contributors who make a $150 donation to Long Island Opera will receive two Supporter tickets to any one opera of the 20122013 season along, admission to the wine reception and an exquisite Italian opera print; for a $250 donation, contributors will receive two VIP tickets with above benefits plus preferred seating and backstage access.

For additional information, e m a i l events@longislandopera.o rg. “Opera has a bright future here and we will continue to bring the world’s greatest operas to Long Island,” said Berta. “All we need is an audience and we know there are a multitude of opera lovers on Long Island – some of them may not know it yet.” Cornell agreed, saying, “Long Island Opera is putting on productions that appeal to the masses. Why not come out and support your local arts program? Just give it a try?”

This immensely successful program, in which the Long Island Museum will emulate the free admission policy of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, D.C.-based facilities, encourages learning and the spread of knowledge nationwide. Inclusive by design, Museum Day Live! fulfills Smithsonian Media’s mission to make cultural education accessible to everyone. For one day only, the Long Island will grant free access to visitors who download a Museum Day Live! ticket at Smithsonian.com. Last year’s event drew over 350,000 museum-goers nation-wide, and this year’s Museum Day Live!

is expected to attract close to 400,000 participants. “The affiliation between the Long Island Museum and the Smithsonian Institution is a wonderful opportunity for intellectual exchange,” said Jackie Day, Museum President and CEO. “We are always looking for ways this partnership can benefit the museum and its constituents, and Museum Day Live! offers an opportunity for us to reach new audiences.” Located at 1200 Route 25A in Stony Brook, the Long Island Museum is dedicated to American history and art with a Long Island connection. The Museum is open Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The exhibitions featured in this year’s Museum Day Live! event include Long Island, America’s 1950s Frontier featuring iconic

1950s photographs, artifacts and fashions, and William Sidney Mount: Country Scenes for City Patrons, featuring some of Mount’s most well-known genre paintings, typifying the work for which he became famous. For more information about the Long Island Museum, visit longislandmuseum.org or call 631.751.0066. The Museum Day Live! ticket will be available to download at Smithsonian.com/museu mday. Visitors who present the Museum Day Live! ticket will gain free entrance for two at participating venues for one day only. One ticket is permitted per household, per e-mail address.

International Beach Cleanup

PET’S PLACE BY SHARON HUBBARD - Sharonadoptpet@aol.com • avoiceforanimals.org

1.

Dear Readers, I am so disappointed in the response - or, should I say, lack of response - by the town of Smithtown to the slaughter of close to 28 cats (my previous number of 15 was incorrect) at the town shelter. I was told by an exasperated office worker that the phone in Supervisor Vecchio’s office was ringing off the hook and that Supervisor Vecchio “wasn’t going to do anything about the shelter.” She refused to give me her name. Supervisor Vecchio did not return my phone call. Calls were sent right over to the shelter and, depending on when you called, you received the following excuse: “yes, rescue organizations were called,” or “the cats were sick.” Neither of those excuses were true. However, if shelter director G. Beatty found the shelter was overcrowded or he needed to “clean up the shelter” due to an official visit, all avenues to save lives should have been explored: adoption events (there were none)...contacting our wonderful rescue organizations (none received a call). Readers, what steps do you think the public should take to effect change at the Smithown Shelter? Please send me your comments. Readers, if you are trying to volunteer at the Hempstead Town Animal Shelter or are “on hold” awaiting orientation, please send me an e-mail. The animals are languishing in their cages as they continue to wait for the animal shelter to get its act together.

Comings & Goings

By: Jamie Lynn Ryan

“Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.” Those are the words my eyes fell on as I began this column. How very appropriate. Transitioning from vacation mode back into “real world” work mode has to be one of the more difficult processes known to man. I’m sure there are worse; but, at the moment, this feels like the steepest climb. Forget the 600+ e-mails that piled up while I was away. Never mind the sheer volume of stuff that managed to accumulate in every corner of life over the course of six days. (Six days. Not even a full week!) But what about the intangible “stuff” – all those

subtle things you tend to miss out on during any extended absence? The latest news and gossip… the various comings and goings of others… all those little daily nuances we barely notice… Sometimes, it seems like we are starting from square one, doesn’t it? So much for momentum. I suppose most of the area school children must feel the same way. Just when they get into the groove of lessons and homework and exams – that’s it. Summer vacation. Time to vegetate, and forget all that they’ve learned, over the next two months. Two whole months. Can you imagine being off from work for that long, with the expectation of having to climb back into a set

routine, meet deadlines and – oh yeah – not lose your mind in the process? I can’t. Absence can do many things – clear your head, refresh your motivation, make your heart grow fonder for whatever it is you may be fond of – but one thing it rarely does is eliminate the stress you will inevitably face upon your return. No one has managed to figure that one out yet. Does this make the absence any less worthwhile? No, I don’t think so. Because, for whatever headache you may be greeted with when you come back, the deep breath you take as you go is one to savor. And we could all use a little calming of the mind.

Winthrop-University Hospital will participate in the ADA’s Step Out Walk To Stop Diabetes on Sunday, September 30th, at 10 a.m. at Jones Beach State Park. This noncompetitive, family and team-friendly event is aimed at bringing together members of the community to raise funds for diabetes research, education and advocacy. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes – a group of diseases marked by high levels of blood glucose resulting from defects in insulin production, insulin action, or both. What’s more, an estimated 79 million U.S. adults have prediabetes, a condition that occurs when blood glucose levels

are higher than normal (100 to 125 mg/dl after fasting for at least eight hours) but are not high enough to be classified as having type 2 diabetes. A person who is not treated for pre-diabetes may soon develop type 2 diabetes and is also at increased risk for heart disease and stroke. Stop Diabetes is the movement to end the devastating toll that diabetes takes on millions of individuals and families across the nation. “Winthrop is proud to support the American Diabetes Association in its efforts to raise awareness, promote healthy living, and raise money to fund educational outreach, advocacy efforts, and critical research that will ultimately put an end to diabetes once and for all,” said J. Lynne Chimon,

MS, RD, CDN, CDE, Director of The Diabetes Education Center at Winthrop. “We encourage members of the community to join with Winthrop on September 30th for a healthy activity in support of this worthy cause.” For more information about the Step Out Walk To Stop Diabetes and to register to walk with Team Winthrop, go to www.diabetes.org/teamwi nthrop. Winthrop-University Hospital is the regional leader in diabetes care, education and research.

The Lourie Center for Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis (MS) at Stony Brook Long Island Children’s Hospital hosted a patient reunion that brought the first pediatric MS patient treated at Stony Brook together with newer patients to celebrate. The event, held at the Wang Center on the Stony Brook University campus, marked the 10year anniversary of the opening of the Center, which was founded by Lauren Krupp, M.D., Professor of Neurology, Stony Brook University School of Medicine, and Pediatric MS Program Director. In 2002, the National Pediatric MS Center at Stony Brook was formed to address the unmet medical needs of children with MS. The Center was the first of its kind in the nation. This year Stony Brook University received a $2.5 million gift from Robert and Lisa Lourie to advance research and clinical care at the Center, which was subsequently renamed in their honor. Historically viewed as an adult-onset disease and difficult to diagnose in

children, MS affects approximately eight-toten thousand children in the U.S. “These children and young adults who we have treated for years should be proud of how they have handled the challenges of their disease,” said Dr. Krupp. “We were thrilled to celebrate with them and mark the 10-year anniversary of the Center.” Dr. Krupp said that because MS is characterized by relapsing and remitting symptoms with unpredictable timing, children are particularly affected by the disease course, not only physically, but also emotionally. For these reasons, Dr. Krupp explained, patient and family access to pediatric MS specialists and other professionals at a multidisciplinary center is critical for integrating care of the multiple facets of the disease and addressing the well-being of the patients and their families. Comprehensive care that emphasizes the continuity of services is also essential for the longterm management of the disease.

The reunion provided an opportunity for increased connectivity and social support for members of the young MS community. The celebration also provided a chance to share their experiences with each other and the doctors, nurses, and staff of the Lourie Center. Maisha Leonard, 27, from Setauket, a longtime patient of Dr. Krupp and the first patient treated at the Center, attended the reunion. Maisha’s diagnosis fueled Dr. Krupp’s inspiration to develop a pediatric MS center at Stony Brook. Approximately 15 other patients and their families took part in the celebration. Many of the patients already knew each other from the Teen Adventure Program (TAP) that is run by the Lourie Center each summer. In its eight year, the TAP is a unique program designed to teach young MS patients about their disease and ways to live a healthy life. The camp offers tools to build a positive self-image while developing confidence and life-long friendships.

Drug Take Back Day

Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center’s Pharmacy Department has scheduled a drug “take back” day on Saturday, September 29th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in partnership with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration. Members of the community may safely dispose of unused or expired medications rather than discarding them in the garbage or flushing them down the

toilet which could lead to e n v i r o n m e n t a l contamination. There will be bins in the hospital’s main lobby for the collection of these items. This past April, Good Samaritan successfully collected more than 240 pounds of unused medications. Unused or expired pharmaceuticals can pose unnecessary risks to individuals and the community. Drug “take back” days offer a

safe and environmentally friendly disposal program that proactively addresses potential hazards associated with improper management. The program helps protect the natural environment, avoid accidental poisoning and helps prevent against prescription drug abuse. For further information on the proper disposal of unused or expired drugs, please call 631.376.4444.

STREET FAIR FUN - The 7th Annual Ronkonkoma Street Fair was recently held this past Sunday, September 2nd. The fair, which drew thousands of residents, took place along Hawkins Avenue in Ronkonkoma.

RONKONKOMA STREET FAIR - The Chamber of Commerce of the Greater Ronkonkomas’ 7th Annual Street Fair was recently held. There were hundreds of vendor booths manned by community and civic organizations, as well as merchants with items ranging from purses, T-shirts, art, children’s toys, etc. Thousands of local residents attended and enjoyed the shopping, entertainment, array of foods and performances by many neighborhood groups.

It was fantastic to sing at the school, and for the singers to make new friends in such a short space of time.” The Southend Choirs make regular concert tours to continental Europe, the U.S., Canada, Australia and Singapore. In recent tours they have performed in the Sydney Opera House, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, St Mark's (Venice), and Cathedrals in Florence, Paris, Belgium, Milan, Monaco and Nice. In 1998 the Southend Girls’ Choir set the Guinness World Record for performing a concert at the highest altitude for their performance at 36,000 above Northern Australia!

Setting The Stage Suffolk County Legislator John M. Kennedy, Jr. once again pulled out another successful stop on his 2012 Bloodbath Tour, bringing blood drives throughout Suffolk County. On a recent Sunday at the Ronkonkoma Day Street Fair, held by the Ronkonkoma Chamber of Commerce, Legislator Kennedy brought two blood buses to Ronkonkoma on his annual quest to fill County

blood banks. Legislator Kennedy has already had much success with this year’s “Bloodbath” blood drive tour. The tour bus has made stops at the Smithtown Day Fair, the 3rd Annual Bloodfest held at the Suffolk County Legislature and most recently at Ronkonkoma Day. During the blood drive, people are asked to donate blood and once screened; blood is drawn by trained nurses from Long Island

Blood Services in the air conditioned comfort of the Bloodbath Tour Bus. For every pint donated, three lives are saved. With blood banks at an all-time low, it is imperative to make blood donations whenever possible. Currently the guidelines state you can make donations every eight weeks. This past weekend, at Ronkonkoma Day, 86 people were screened while 53 pints of blood were collected.

(NAPSI)—With a flood of real estate listings on the market, sellers continuously search for ways to stand out. The process is called staging. Done correctly, it can make a house look bigger, brighter, cleaner, warmer and make homebuyers want to buy it. To help, here are some tips: • Curb Appeal: The exterior of the house is the first thing potential buyers see; make sure it’s bright, clean and inviting.

• Clean: Clean from top to bottom, getting rid of clutter and organizing the space. Don’t forget the ceilings and fans. • Brighten Up: Do what you can to help buyers envision living in the space. Make sure windows are streak free. Hide personal pictures. Instead, decorate with fresh flowers. • Living Space: Choose neutral tones for the walls and furniture. Slipcovers are an inexpensive way to spruce up old furniture. Add pillows for pops of

color. • Dining Area: Set your dining room or kitchen table.

(NAPSI)—Parents of young children need to be better educated in order to avoid making potentially dangerous safety mistakes when they are on the go. The Problem Automobile crashes remain a leading cause of death for children and it’s important that parents consistently and correctly use the appropriate car seat to keep their child passengers safe. Many parents may be

unknowingly endangering their children as three out of four car seats are not used correctly, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Some Answers Busy parents and caregivers may be tempted by safety shortcuts when transporting children. AAA offers simple reminders to protect parents’ most precious cargo.

can fit into the car.” Reminder: All children under age 13 are safest when riding in the backseat and properly restrained in a car seat, booster seat or seat belt. Shortcut: “We will be driving more people in our car than we have seat belts. Since it’s a short trip, it’s not a big deal for someone to ride on another person’s lap.” Reminder: It’s never safe to ride on another person’s lap. Each

passenger should be properly restrained on every trip. Shortcut: “My son is 10 years old and 4’6” tall. He’s big enough to use a seat belt now.” Reminder: The American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends children continue to use beltpositioning booster seats until they are 4’9” and the seat belt fits properly. Help For Parents Fortunately, AAA

experts are available to help parents with car seat installation. Visit an AAA club, go to www.seatcheck.org or call (866) SEATCHECK [(866) 732-8243]. Learn More For additional information on AAA’s child passenger safety resources for parents and caregivers, visit www.AAA.com/carseat.

Don’t Text And Drive dramatic or tense texting conversation, it could be too enticing to focus on the phone instead of the road. The Stats The U.S. government’s official website on distracted driving, www.distraction.gov, cites multiple statistics on the dangers of this careless behavior: • Using a mobile phone while driving, whether it’s handheld or hands-free, delays a driver’s reactions as much as having a blood alcohol concentration at the legal limit of .08 percent. • Driving while using a mobile phone reduces the amount of brain activity associated with driving by 37 percent. • Drivers who use handheld devices are four times as likely to get into crashes serious enough to injure themselves as those who don’t. • An estimated 11 percent of drivers are talking on cell phones while driving at any point during the day. The Steps 1. Impress upon teens the need to not text or talk

on the phone while driving by not doing so yourself. Beyond providing an example of responsible behavior, this creates a safer driving environment. 2. Explain to your teens the seriousness of the situation and let them know that it is important to have a plan in order to avoid temptation. For example, have them always keep their cell phone off while driving or in the backseat out of reach to avoid distraction completely. 3. Learn more from the experts in mobile technology at LG by visiting the company’s LG Text Ed website, www.lgtexted.com. As part of its Text Education campaign, LG offers insights and solutions on how to avoid possibly harmful behaviors such as distracted driving. In order to keep distractions to a minimum, LG encourages all drivers to never text while driving and to always use a handsfree Bluetooth device when operating a vehicle.

(NAPSI)—There are steps parents and others can take to drive down the dreadful rate of traffic injuries and fatalities. An estimated 6,000 people are killed and 500,000 people are injured annually because someone was texting, e-mailing or talking on a mobile phone while driving. The Facts Dr. Joel Haber, a clinical psychologist and LG Text Ed council member, explains that for teens, texting and driving is an even bigger problem than it is for adults. First, kids text more. Texting is their preferred mode of communication. According to a recent LG Text Ed survey conducted by LG Mobile phones, while half of all teens admit to texting while driving, only 4 percent of parents are aware of this. Second, teens are inherently novices when it comes to driving. They especially need to focus on the road to compensate for any lack of driving skill or experience. Third, teens can literally be driven to distraction. If a teen is caught up in a
