This Is Your Year To Make Your Business Hit The

By: Jamie Lynn Ryan

Cracking the Classics

Winter being one of those seasons best suited for indoor activities, I have recently taken up the hobby of reading; well, by taken up, I mean I have ordered several selections with the intent of reading them (hopefully) before spring arrives. I always say I want to read at least one book a month; generally, this amounts to a single magazine, perhaps a chapter or two of a cast-aside novel from several years ago… rarely do I seem to make any considerable progress in this literary department. This year, on New Year’s Day in fact, I made it my mission to use one of my holiday gift cards to order a handful of the “classics” - The Wind in

the Willows, Walden, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, and Wuthering Heights - a veritable collection straight from the pages of an old English department syllabus. Some, I had read bits and pieces of years ago; others, I had always wanted to peruse more thoroughly, but had never taken the opportunity to dive into. Of course, nearly six weeks later, and I have yet to make it past the introduction to The Wind in the Willows. An hour a night, I told myself. Simple. Just make it a habit, and the pages will fly by, I theorized. This is recreational reading - no obligation, no required deadline. Read at your leisure, because you want to. And still, somehow, the pile of books remains virtually untouched. Perhaps I should join a book club. Maybe I need the structure, the faux “assignment” to push me

along. Nightly chapter summaries, on the teacher’s desk by morning! But, in all seriousness, it is truly remarkable how difficult we find the task of simply enriching our lives in a cultural sense. Binge a series on Netflix over the course of a few days? Not a problem. Spend hours mindlessly browsing social media? Done. Priorities, indeed. As much as I never thought I would wish for winter to prolong, I am somewhat glad that another month remains to tackle this self-imposed task. Five weeks, to be precise. One book per week or so. Doable? Sure, with the proper focus. Such is the extent of my winter “To Do” list. Not a bad way to spend an evening. Don’t worry, dear readers, you shall have a full report of my progress - or lack thereof by next month. {Side note: they still make Cliff Notes, right?}

JACKPOT!

February Charity of the Month:

HOPE CHILDREN’S FUND

Hope Children’s Fund is an international non-profit that operates with the motto “Education Is Key.” For children in Kenya, this couldn’t be more true. Without an education and the ability to speak English, these children often lack the opportunity to rise above fetching water and cutting wood. Kevin Mann, Vice President of Hope Children’s Fund, explained, “The government in Kenya doesn’t have the resources to take care of the children in their country like the United States government does.” It is not shocking to see a very young child in Kenya hopelessly wandering the streets without family...hungry and just trying to survive. Hope Children’s Fund does something about this problem. In 2001, Hope Children’s Fund registered as a nonprofit and raised $40,000 through donations – precisely enough money to begin construction on an orphanage that stands high up on a hill in Meru, Kenya. By 2005, the orphanage opened and began transforming lives for children, many of whom had lost their parents in the AIDS epidemic. This orphanage, Jerusha Mwiraria Hope Children’s Fund Home, has a dining hall and a dormitory for boys and girls. It provides the children with shelter, steady meals and the opportunity to attend school. The children are shown family values and given chores to complete in order for them to gain life skills. They currently house 100 children and have had many success stories. If you would like to be part of another one of their success stories, you can! There are 22 orphans who still need to be sponsored through Hope Children’s Fund’s sponsorship program - $1/day or $365/year will help send these children to school so they have a better chance to succeed. You can visit their website at www.HopeChildrensFund.org or contact Kevin Mann at KevinMannMail@gmail. com to learn more and view photos of

these children. Upon sponsorship, you will receive a photo and bio of the child you chose to sponsor. You will be able to write letters or send e-mails directly to the child to provide them with hopeful messages! Kevin and his wife often travel to Meru to visit the orphanage and welcome sponsors to travel along to meet firsthand the child they sponsor. Another way you can become involved is by hosting a craft fair right here on Long Island to sell Kenyan crafts made by the Meru Women’s Collective. You will be provided with the goods, and all the profits generated will go back to the children at the orphanage. Contact Kevin Mann for more information. On Febraury 18th, Hope Children’s Fund will host its first Gala at East Wind in Wading River! All are welcome to attend and enjoy a night out to support this charity and its cause. The Gala will include dinner, a unique art auction, music by the band X-Sessions and a possible Skype call with the children at their orphanage in Meru. Contact Kevin Mann to purchase your tickets now ($200/person) and be a part of something that truly matters!

Another Organizations YOU Can Become Involved With...

Centro Cultural Hispano ~ Oyster Bay www.cchoben.org This non-profit works towards the educational, social and economic development of the Hispanic community of Oyster Bay, East Norwich and surrounding areas. They are seeking volunteers to help students at their after-school program from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Oyster Bay. For most of these students, English is not the first language spoken at home and, as a result, their parents do not understand English sufficiently enough to help them with their schoolwork. Volunteers will work one-on-one with children from K-6 with homework, reading and writing. Please contact Johanna Velasquez at 516.558.7020 or at office@cchoben.org to volunteer!

Ready to Pamper There is a bright future awaiting the students who recently completed the 600-hour Eastern Suffolk BOCES Adult Education Esthetician Course. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of skincare specialists is expected to grow 25 percent through 2020, faster than the average of other

occupations. Esthetics in the beauty industry relates to the health and beautification of the skin and in technical terms, to the application of techniques to the epidermal layer of the human body. Now that these students have completed the 75 classes and 600 hours, they are ready to take the New

Sleep Better, Stress Less stress. “When you’re stressed and tired, every aspect of your life is affected,” says lifestyle expert and spokesperson for the Better Sleep Council, Lissa Coffey. “Controlling stress

and getting a good night’s rest start with evaluating your lifestyle.” Dr. Douglas MacKay, N.D., vice president, scientific and regulatory affairs, Council for Responsible Nutrition,

agrees: “Eating a healthy diet, taking vitamins and other supplements, exercising regularly and getting adequate amounts of sleep are all part of a healthy lifestyle.” Here are more tips to

help you sleep better and stress less: 1. Eat a well-balanced diet. 2. Take your vitamins, including a daily multivitamin. Ask your doctor about other

supplements, like valerian, for healthy sleep. 3. Evaluate your mattress--consider replacing it if it’s five to seven years old or older.

The Long Island Museum in Stony Brook announced today that is has been chose as a semi-finalist in the 6th annual Imagine Awards, which recognize innovation and leadership in the nonprofit sector. Created by Ken Cerini of Cerini & Associates, LLP, The Long Island Imagine Awards was created as a way to showcase the nonprofit sector and all the good work that it does, as well as provide opportunities for deeper collaboration within the sector. The event acts as an opportunity to meet new people, discover new organizations doing business on Long Island, develop new relationships, and learn from the organizations that are being honored. As a semi-finalist in the Arts & Cultural Award Category, the Long Island Museum is recognized

for the development and implementation of its “Rides for Kids” program, which provides subsidized transportation and reduced rates for underserved school districts. Schools in these districts struggle with budget restrictions that prevent them from taking part in important educational programs outside of the classroom. “The Museum is honored to be considered for this prestigious award and to also be considered in such fine company as the other semi-finalists,” stated Neil Watson, LIM’s Executive Director. The Long Island Museum’s school programs support New York State and national learning standards in art, social studies and language arts, offering visual and handson activities, especially beneficial for children who

do not thrive in traditional classroom environments. Since its inception in 2013, the LIM Rides for Kids program has served more than 6,500 students in districts all across Long Island. The Long Island Museum is among six semi-finalists in the Imagine Awards Arts & Cultural Category. Other organizations recognized for their innovative programs in the category include Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor, Cinema Arts Center and Huntington Arts Council in Huntington, the Hamptons International Film Festival and Landmark on Main Street in Port Washington. Winners will be announced at the 6th annual Imagine Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, May 1st at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury.

In recognition of its commitment to educational excellence and outstanding student performance, Earl L. Vandermeulen High School in the Port Jefferson School District has again been named a Reward School by the New York State Education Department. It has achieved the honor consecutively since the 2012-2013 academic year. The NYSED presents the award annually to schools that have made the most progress or have the highest performance in the state with no significant gaps in student achievement. Earl L. Vandermeulen High

School was one of only 155 schools across New York State to receive the recognition this year. “This prestigious designation is a testament to the tireless efforts of our administrators and educators,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Paul Casciano. “That, coupled with students who embrace learning, their exceptional accomplishments, and the engagement of parents and our school community, allow us to continue to meet and exceed high standards.” The designation is the third honor for the school

this academic year. On the national level, it was named a Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education in September, and Principal Christine Austen was named a Person of the Year by TBR News Media in December for her leadership and steadfast efforts in improving the academic programs offered. The school annually boasts numerous AP Scholars, and National Merit Semifinalists and Commended Students, in addition to the many athletic, musical, civic and volunteer accomplishments of its students.

Named a Reward School

Long Island’s Got Talent

LI Champions Three Village Central School District’s Ward Melville High School seniors Allyson Gaedje, Samantha Rutt, Samantha Sturgess and sophomore Elizabeth Radke were named Long Island champions during this

year’s Millrose Winter Games at the Armory Track. During the early February event, the students ran the 4x400 meter relay with a time of 3:57.84. With this remarkable time, the

group’s best time to date, they now hold the third quickest time in New York. The students qualified for the competition, the longest running indoor track and field competition in the world, during a trial event on January 10th.

Book Tasting Three Village Central School District’s R.C. Murphy Junior High School seventh-grade students in Michelle Hanczor’s honors English classes recently sampled a few classic stories during a “Book Tasting” initiative in the school’s library. During their class time, the students had several minutes to preview five different books and

complete a tasting menu with their initial reactions of the piece. The stories they previewed included John Steinbeck’s “The Red Pony,” Paul Zindel’s “The Pigman,” Cameron Stracher’s “Water Wars,” Mark Twain’s “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,” and Celia Rees’ “Witch Child.” In the menus, the students shared what they thought of the book and

how the author worked to hook readers from the start before giving the piece a ranking of 1-5. In the coming weeks, Ms. Hanczor will be creating literature circles based on the students’ expressed interest in the previewed books and those groups will work on an interdisciplinary project to create a book trailer for their chosen story.

Service Academy Nomination

In addition to the academic and athletic accomplishments of Port Jefferson School District’s Earl L. Vandermeulen High School senior Connor Kaminska, his resume now boasts not one, but three, 2018 Service Academy nominations. Sen. Chuck Schumer,

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Rep. Lee Zeldin each wrote a letter of recommendation for Connor for entry into the U.S. Naval Academy, where he hopes to continue his post high school education. The competitive nomination process was an opportunity to shine a light

As research continues to be conducted on the health risks associated with electronic cigarettes, the Port Jefferson School District is proactively engaged in preventing its use among students. A collaboration with the Suffolk County Department of Health Services and educator Stephanie Sloan, is one of the

approaches that is teaching students the dangers of e-cigarettes. Sloan is conducting informational presentations to all physical education classes in Earl L. Vandermuelen High School, where students are learning peer-to-peer prevention strategies. “Education is key,” said Danielle Turner,

the district’s director of physical education, health and athletics, who along with district administrators is working to educate students to make healthy decisions. “The more our students understand and accept the associated risk factors, the more they will make positive choices.”

on Connor’s competence, character and compassion. He was touted for his academic performance through his SAT and ACT scores, athletic abilities as a member of the lacrosse and football teams, and ambitious accomplishments as part of the school’s Mathletes and Science Olympiad team. He praised the many opportunities offered during his educational career in the Port Jefferson School District. Connor’s academic and leadership skills were also noted when earlier this year, he was honored by the College Board as an AP Scholar with Distinction, and named a Suffolk Zone award winner by the New York State Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and TEAMING UP FOR STUDENTS - Suffolk County Department of Health Services educator Stephanie Sloan (second from left) during a presentation on the health risks Dance. of e-cigarette use for Earl L.

As an extension to their studies, students from Port Jefferson School District’s Edna Louise Spear Elementary School fifth-grade art club viewed unique works of art during a recent visit to the Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery at Stony Brook University’s Staller Center for the Arts. During the field trip, Karen Levitov, director and curator for the gallery, spoke with the students

about the current “Double Portrait” exhibit that featured the work of Charley Friedman and Nancy Friedemann-Sanchez. Ms. Levitov spoke about the techniques and inspiration behind the artists’ works, which included quirky sculptures, drawings, video and photographs. “The students had the opportunity to examine and discuss artwork that appeared visually

different but upon further investigation, had similar content,” said elementary art teacher Meghan Hallock, who accompanied the students on the trip along with art teacher Richard Anderson. “Through these artists they’ve come to understand that a self-portrait can be nonrepresentational and look forward to making their own.”

Reading Relationships the important correlation between a strong hometo-school connection and a student’s academic success. Following this year’s PARP theme of “Be a Reading Super hero,” students created super hero capes for their favorite reading hero and took part in theme days over the course of the two-week program. These included “Sweat Day,” when everyone came to school in sweats, because reading jogs the mind and “Spot

Day,” when everyone wore spots, because readers can “spot” a good book. Furthermore, students and families gathered for the annual evening Milk and Cookies night. During the event, school administrators shared stories aloud and the PTA provided chocolate chip cookies and milk.  Lastly, the students enjoyed attending a lively music assembly featuring the famous Hip Pickles.

Musical Flair Six students from Earl L. Vandermeulen High School in the Port Jefferson School District participated in the 60th annual Mid-Island Band Festival, which was recently held at West Islip High School. The concert brought

students Josh Ecker, Cole Fortier, Leland Held, Jillian Lawler, Cole Swensen, and Jack Worrell together on stage with studentmusicians from Miller Place, Sayville, PatchogueMedford, Hauppauge and West Islip school districts. “Congratulations to all

participating students for their exceptional efforts,” said Dr. Michael Caravello, the district director of music and fine arts. “These experiences continue to advance their creative expressions in music.”

Heading to LI Championship The FIRST® Tech Challenge season – dubbed FIRST RELIC RECOVERYSM (presented by Qualcomm) – will culminate this weekend with the SBPLI Long Island Championship tournament. Presented locally by School-Business Partnerships of Long Island, Inc. (SBPLI), FIRST® Tech Challenge inspires students age 12 to 18 to pursue an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Twenty-four teams

(noted below) from across Long Island will compete in the event at Smithtown High School West on Sunday, February 11th. The participating teams earned the opportunity to compete during one of five regional qualifying tournaments that took place at Lynbrook, Center Moriches and Sewanhaka High Schools throughout the month of January. Working alongside adult mentors, more than 46,000 students in nearly 20 countries have spent the last several months

designing, building, programming and operating robots to play a floor game in an alliance format on a 12-foot by 12-foot field. This season, FIRST Tech Challenge teams across the world were asked to don their adventurers’ hats to create robots capable of retrieving opponent-colored jewels from platforms, scoring glyphs into crypto boxes, creating cipher patterns, moving “relics” to a recovery zone and parking

in the SBPLI Long Island Championship,” says Janet Anderson, Program Director and SBPLI/FIRST Long Island representative. “FIRST Tech Challenge has grown into a powerful program for students across Long Island, and we are excited

to see which teams will continue on to the SuperRegional in Scranton as representatives of Long Island’s STEM talent.” For more information on SBPLI or FIRST Tech Challenge, please visit www.sbpli-lifirst.org.

For example, here are some steps you can take: • Plan your financial future with trusted family members, friends and professionals. If managing your daily finances is difficult, consider engaging a money manager.

• Talk with a lawyer about creating a durable power of attorney for asset management, a revocable or living will, and trust and health care advance directives. • Don’t be pressured or intimidated into quick financial decisions or sign any documents you do not completely understand. • Never provide personal information (Social Security number, credit card) over the phone unless you placed the call

and know with whom you are speaking. • Tear up or shred credit card receipts, bank statements, solicitations and financial records before disposing of them. For more tips on avoiding exploitation, or if you suspect you or someone you know is being exploited, call the Eldercare Locator at (800) 677-1116 or visit www.eldercare.gov.

Caring For Older Adults (NAPSI)—With a growing aging population, the amount of family caregivers in the United States is also on the rise. There are nearly 45 million people who serve as a caregiver for a family member or friend who is 50 or older. Serving as a caregiver can be rewarding but difficult. Often, caregivers are unaware of local aging resources that might be able to assist them. The Eldercare Locator is a free, public service that connects older adults and caregivers to information about local resources

and services such as meal delivery programs, transportation options, home modification assistance and inhome support services. Additionally, caregivers can find out about support groups in their community and programs that offer a break from caregiving responsibilities. The Eldercare Locator also has free informational brochures for older adults and caregivers on topics such as medication management, preventing falls in the home, transportation options, avoiding financial

exploitation, and brain health. All brochures can be ordered by calling 800677-1116 or downloaded online at www.eldercare. gov. If you are a caregiver who is seeking information about caring for your loved one and you want to learn about community resources that may be able to assist, call the Eldercare Locator at 800-677-1116 or visit www.eldercare.gov. The Eldercare Locator is a public service of the U.S. Administration on Aging and is administered by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging.

Three Ways To Save

(NAPSI)—Every year, some 35 million Americans move to a new home. If you’re ever among them, you should know that three simple steps can help you go a long way toward more savings and less stress: 1. Downsize. Donate, sell or toss anything you don’t love, need or use. Pay special attention to bulky, heavy stuff such as: • Books and magazines. Are you really going to read them again?

• Food. Why pay movers to pack and lug 80-cent cans of tomatoes or $1 boxes of pasta? • Old appliances. A washing machine lasts about 10 years, a dryer 13. It may pay to buy new ones for your new home. 2. Comparison shop. The American Moving & Storage Association recommends getting at least three in-home quotes. 3. Time your move. Midweek and mid-month can

offer better deals and more flexible dates with movers. Also, get an early start the day of your move. Two of the best time-savers: • If you live in an apartment, reserve elevator access for moving day. • Save a parking spot for the moving truck in front of your building.
