said Martin B. Tirado, CAE, Executive Director of the Snow & Ice Management Association. “Slipping and falling while walking accounts for a large number of winter-related injuries and can have an impact on the quality of life for the injured person.” SIMA, the national nonprofit organization representing the snow removal industry, has some tips on safe winter walking.

TIP #1: Wear proper footwear. Proper footwear should place the entire foot on the surface of the ground and have visible treads. Avoid a smooth sole and opt for a heavy treaded shoe with a flat bottom. TIP #2: Accessorize to see and be seen. Wear sunglasses so that you can see in the reflective light of the snow. Also, wear a bright coat or scarf so that drivers can easily see you.

TIP #3: Plan ahead. While walking on snow or ice on sidewalks or in parking lots, walk consciously. Instead of looking down, look up and see where your feet will move next to anticipate ice or an uneven surface. Occasionally scan from left to right to ensure you are not in the way of vehicles or other hazards. TIP #4: Make sure you can hear. While seeing the environment is important, you also want to be sure you can hear approaching traffic and other noises. Avoid listening to music or engaging in conversation that may prevent you from hearing oncoming traffic or snow removal equipment. TIP #5: Anticipate ice. Be weary of thin sheets of ice that may appear as wet pavement (black ice). Often ice will appear in the morning, in shady spots or where the sun shines during the day and melted snow refreezes at night. TIP #6: Walk steps slowly. When walking

down steps, be sure to grip handrails firmly and plant your feet securely on each step. TIP #7: Enter a building carefully. When you get to your destination such as school, work, shopping center, etc., be sure to look at the floor as you enter the building. The floor may be wet with melted snow and ice. TIP #8: Be careful when you shift your weight. When stepping off a curb or getting into a car, be careful since shifting your weight may cause an imbalance and result in a fall. TIP #9: Avoid taking shortcuts. Shortcuts are

a good idea if you are in a hurry, but may be a bad idea if there is snow and ice on the ground. A shortcut path may be treacherous because it is likely to be located where snow and ice removal is not possible. TIP #10: Look up. Be careful about what you walk under. Injuries also can result from falling snow/ice as it blows, melts, or breaks away from awnings, buildings, etc. Following these tips will help ensure that you survive the snow and ice season safely.

Falls account for more than one million injuries in the U.S. annually. There are four types of walking accidents with the most common being the slip and fall. That’s the type of fall that happens when you fall due a surface not cleared of snow or ice. “Every winter the hazards of driving in snow and icy conditions are noted, but rarely is walking on snow and ice addressed,”

Winter Walking Tips


It’s usually team spirit that the Stony Brook University Men’s Basketball team brings to the court each game, but during a special holiday visit to Stony Brook Children’s Hospital on Monday, December 9th, there was a different type of spirit and cheer roaming the halls. The team took a break from practice to come mingle with some of the youngest Seawolves fans in the pediatric emergency department, and pediatric acute care unit. With

presents in hand, the players shot some hoops with these little patients, took photos and had some fun with the kids in the playroom. The team’s efforts brought exactly what they hoped for, smiling young faces and holiday joy. During the team’s visit, coach Steve Pikiell presented L. Reuvan Pasternak, MD, Chief Executive Officer, Stony Brook University Hospital and Vice President for Health Systems, Stony Brook Medicine, with a

Stony Brook University Athletics ‘family-4-pack’ of tickets to each SBU Men’s Basketball home game to kids and their families who are currently admitted or who have been discharged from the Children’s Hospital. Coach Pikiell is no stranger to generous donations; he and his family donated $25,000 in May of 2012 to Stony Brook Children’s that was then matched by an anonymous donor, raising the value to $50,000.

Toy Run A Success

WBAB’s ‘Fingers’ and escorted by numerous local fire department engines embarked on a 15-mile mission Sunday morning to deliver hundreds of toys to the young patients who anxiously awaited their arrival. Lee and Greg Sheridan, owners of Full Throttle Magazine, have organized this event for the past four

years in efforts to make the children’s stay in the hospital a little easier. Gifts and toys were collected during the publications Winter Wonderland event on December 4th, which was hosted at 89 North in Patchogue. This year they were joined by the Sons of Italia Motorcycle Club and several local Fire Departments.

For the second year in a row, the Rotary Club of the Moriches presented Breakfast with Santa, which took place December 8th inside the dining hall of Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. Nearly 300 people attended the event. Proceeds went to benefit the camp. Guests were served pancakes, sausage, juice and coffee by members of the Moriches Rotary Club and the Interact Clubs from Eastport South Manor, Center Moriches and East Moriches. Following the

breakfast, everyone had the opportunity to meet Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus and get their pictures taken with them. In addition, guests took part in a 50/50 raffle and raffles for a chance to win a variety of prizes that included children’s toys and Christmas decorations. Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck is a resident summer camp serving children and young adults ages 6-21 with both physical and developmental special needs. Its mission is to help

these children to achieve equality, dignity, and maximum independence through a safe quality program of camping, recreation and education. Throughout the program, campers participate in many activities, such as arts and crafts, talent shows, cook-outs, swimming and boating. For more information about Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck, please call 631.878.1070 or visit www.camppaquatuck. com.

Cardiology Center Support

The Guilds of Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center recently presented $90,000 to The Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation to support the hospital’s cardiology services. This gift brought the Guilds’ 2013 donations to a total of $250,000 for various programs, including pediatrics, cancer, intensive care services and the Emergency Department. Made up of volunteers from surrounding communities, the Guilds have helped sustain the hospital for

more than 50 years. Good Samaritan Hospital’s cardiovascular services include superior, comprehensive care. Good Samaritan was one of the first community hospitals in Suffolk County to perform primary angioplasty to swiftly open blocked arteries during a heart attack and was the first in the county to offer the combination of primary elective angioplasty and a cardiac rehabilitation program. Patients across Long Island turn to Good

Samaritan for a variety of cardiology services such as angioplasty, temporary pacemaker insertion, electrophysiology studies, stress testing, EKG testing and more. In addition, Good Samaritan has been recognized with the Get With The Guidelines® – Heart Failure Gold Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association for the third consecutive year. For more information on cardiology services at Good Samaritan, call 631.376.4444.

Suffolk County Community College Culinary School student Satoko Matthews of East Patchogue whipped up a delectable dish to claim first place in the school’s Battle for the Beach Competition. The students’ challenge was to take a mystery basket of ingredients and turn them into a dish that was judged on creativity, presentation, and taste with minimal time to plan and execute its delivery – similar to the reality television show Chopped, airing on The Food

Network. The winning dish, a mouthwatering lime marinated chicken with a baked artichoke topped with a lime aioli, roasted potato hash and sautéed brocollini was Matthews’ ticket to a seven-night stay at the Sheraton Clearwater Beach Resort in Clearwater, Florida (including round-trip airfare and ground transportation) and the opportunity to work under the supervision of Sheraton Clearwater Beach Resort’s Executive Chef. The competition’s top chefs were: 1st Place – Satoko Matthews East Patchogue 2nd Place- Victoria Shannon Huntington 3rd place- Watson Lloyd Southampton 4th Place Gloria Scrocco Remsenburg The competition was held on Friday, December

6th at The Culinary Arts and Hospitality Center at Suffolk County Community College, Riverhead. The Culinary Arts and Hospitality Center at Suffolk County Community College is widely recognized as the premier culinary instructional facility on Long Island and features 28,000-square-feet of space, with state-of-the-art kitchen facilities.

Yesterday, the Long Island region was awarded $83 million in Regional Economic Development Awards. New York State’s Regional Councils were created by Governor Cuomo in 2011 in an effort to jumpstart the economy and create jobs. The initiative has redesigned the state’s approach to economic development from a top-down model to a communitybased, performancedriven approach where community, business and academic leaders develop strategic plans tailored to their region’s unique strengths and resources in order to spur economic development. “I would like to thank the members of the Long Island’s Regional Economic Development Council for their steadfast commitment to supporting projects that will grow and strengthen Long Island’s Economy,” said County Executive Bellone. Long Island was designated a Top Performer. Highlights of the 90 Suffolk County projects funded include: · $2,000,000 to Stony Brook University to build a new Innovation and Discovery Facility designed to enhance the business recruitment power of START-UP NY and stimulate a public-private partnership for building construction. · $2,000,000 to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) to renovate a facility and establish a Therapeutics Discovery Center, which will greatly accelerate translational research efforts at CSHL aimed at developing new therapeutics and diagnostics for cancer and neurological disorders. · $2,000,000 to support high performance computing investments at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) as well as Hofstra University.

Sculpture Provides Inspiration Local artist Todd Arnett has been using his creativity on the grounds of Camp-Pa-Qua-Tuck by creating a wooden sculpture near Kaler’s Pond. The unnamed sculpture was carved out of an elevenfoot tall, 800-pound black cherry tree and made into a Phoenix. It was placed on a 5,000-pound illuminated base on November 10 at the camp. The sculpture was inspired by the ideas  

of Gail Saetta and Matt Russell, Bradstock Music Festival volunteers who have been organizing the festival at the camp annually and have been installing lights throughout the camp for the past two years. When it looked like Bradstock would no longer continue because another music venue was not able to present the festival any longer, Camp Pa-QuaTuck offered to hold it on

Make-­‐A-­‐Wish®  Suffolk  County,  NY  

their grounds three years ago. During that time, Ms. Saetta and Mr. Russell became acquainted with the camp’s staff and volunteers and learned about its mission. They then began donating lights and installing them on the camp’s grounds. “One spring day when we were installing lights, Matt and I thought that adding something new to the camp would be a good idea in   order to stimulate more

creativity,” Ms. Saetta stated. “We thought about different types of objects and eventually, decided on a large sculpture.” Ms. Saetta and Mr. Russell proposed the idea to Bridget Costello, the camp’s director. Ms. Costello concurred that an innovative, artistic sculpture would enhance the camp. They approached Mr. Arnett in June with ideas to incorporate a sculpture into the camp

 Thomas, age 17, from East Northport, has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He wishes to have a room makeover so that he can enjoy it with his friends.

after hearing about his immaculate wood carving abilities from a close friend. Mr. Arnett, Ms. Saetta and Mr. Russell began exchanging ideas about what type of sculpture to create. After many conversations, the idea of a phoenix emerged. “The Phoenix sculpture symbolizes the rebirth of the music festival at Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck and symbolizes the strength of the children that attend the camp,” says Ms. Saetta. Although the sculpture is not yet completed, it is coming together as feathers beneath a globe with a forceful vortex above it. Essentially, it’s pushing a Phoenix to fly higher. For the finishing touches, musical notes will be added around the globe. Mr. Arnett began working on the one-ofa-kind sculpture in July, about a month after his meeting with Ms. Saetta and Mr. Russell. The sculpture is expected to be fully completed soon,

although Mr. Arnett is not sure of an exact date yet because of weather conditions. Mr. Arnett has been wood carving for over 30 years and has had a sculpture business on Long Island for ten years. “This is definitely one of my largest sculptures I’ve done and I’m ecstatic to make one for the camp,” says Mr. Arnett. “I love contributing to a great organization that helps children and young adults with special needs.” “We hope to enhance creativity at the camp with this unique sculpture,” says Ms. Costello. “We want the children in our programs to be inspired by the sculpture and know to always reach for the stars, just like the flying Phoenix.” For more information about Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck, or to make a donation, call 631.878.1070 or visit www. camppaquatuck.com.

Financial Resolutions for the New Year • Don’t overreact to market volatility. Too many people head to the investment “sidelines” during market downturns. But if you’re not invested, then you miss any potential market gains— and the biggest gains are often realized at the early stages of the rally. • Focus on the long term. You can probably check your investment balance online, which means you can do it every day, or even several times a day — but should you? If you’re following a strategy that’s appropriate for your needs, goals, risk tolerance and

time horizon, you’re already doing what you should be doing in the long run. So there’s no need to stress yourself over the short-term movements that show up in your investment statements. Do whatever you can to turn these New Year’s resolutions into realities. Your efforts could pay off well beyond 2014.

If you’d like to roll it over to an Edward Jones Individual Retirement Account (IRA), we can help you do it without paying taxes or penalties. And you can feel confident that someone is looking out for you and your 401(k).

To find out why it makes sense to talk with Edward Jones about your 401(k) options, call or visit your local financial advisor today.

SUFFOLK ZONE 6 - NEIGHBOR NEWSPAPERS - WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 18, 2013 • www.southbaysneighbor.com

Submitted By Michael Sceiford - Edward Jones Port Jefferson About 45% of Americans usually make New Year’s resolutions, according to a survey from the University of Scranton. But the same survey shows that only 8% of us actually keep our resolutions. Perhaps this low success rate isn’t such a tragedy when our resolutions involve things like losing a little weight or learning a foreign language. But when we make financial resolutions — resolutions that, if achieved, could significantly help us in our pursuit of our important long-term goals — it’s clearly worthwhile to make every effort to follow through. So, what sorts of financial resolutions might you consider? Here are a few possibilities: • Boost your contributions to your retirement plans. Each year, try to put in a little more to your IRA and your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plans. These tax-advantaged accounts are good options for your retirement savings strategy. • Reduce your debts. It’s not always easy to reduce your debts, but make it a goal to finish 2014 with a smaller debt load than you had going into the new year. The lower your monthly debt payments, the more money you’ll have to invest for retirement, college for your children (or grandchildren) and other important objectives. • Build your emergency fund. Work on building an “emergency fund” containing six to 12 months’ worth of living expenses, with the money held in a liquid account that offers a high degree of preservation of principal. Without such a fund, you might be forced to dip into your long-term investments to pay for emergencies, such as a new furnace, a major car repair, and so on. You might not be able to finish creating your emergency fund in one year, but contribute as much as you can afford. • Plan for your protection needs. If you don’t already have the proper amounts of life and disability insurance in place, put it on your “To Do” list for 2014. Also, if you haven’t taken steps to protect yourself from the considerable costs of long-term care, such as an extended nursing home stay, consult with your financial professional, who can suggest the appropriate protection or investment vehicles. You may never need such care, but that’s a chance you may not want to take — and the longer you wait, the more expensive your protection options may become.

The event included fun activities and an opportunity to remember someone special with an angel bearing the names of those being honored or memorialized displayed in the hospital lobby during the month of December. The lighting of the Christmas Tree was a symbolic tribute to these

special “Christmas Angels.” The festival raised more than $4,000 for The Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation and was enjoyed by more than 500 community members, Foundation and Guild board members, staff and elected officials. The free event featured refreshments and lots of fun with a visit from Santa, courtesy of the West Islip

Fire Department, along with his elves and friends from the North Pole. In addition, attendees had their photos taken in a 15 ft. giant snow globe. Students from St. John the Baptist High School and Harborfields High School were among the volunteers who helped make the event a success.

Savor The Season By: Jamie Lynn Ryan One week. Seven days. One hundred sixty eight hours. (We won’t get into minutes and seconds – you get the idea.) This is precisely how much time remains before Christmas. And with the virtual countdown comes that age-old holiday anxiety, the mad rush to finish writing out the greeting cards, shopping for gifts, wrapping, cleaning, cooking, baking… whatever your traditions call for in the race to conjure that yearly sense of merriment. Right. The holiday spirit. That is what all the fuss

is about, after all. Lest we forget the reason for all the racing around, the endless “To Do” lists, the exorbitant credit card bills… all for a day or two of celebration with family and friends, neighbors and loved ones. Seems like an awful lot of effort doesn’t it? This is why, when everyone else is busy ripping down the Christmas decorations on December 26th, I say wait. Savor it a little longer. Extend the festivities. You put all that time and effort into preparing for the occasion – might as well enjoy it as long as you can.

(Note: All remnants of Santa Claus should be removed by July. No exceptions.) Of course, all of this is irrelevant to those who start their Christmas shopping in January and are finished decorating by Halloween. Seriously folks – enjoy one season, and one holiday, at a time. What’s the big rush? This time of year is not one long list to be accomplished in as little time as humanly possible; it is made up of moments to be cherished, memories to reflect upon and add to with each passing year. Take a deep breath, take lots of pictures – and enjoy.

Helping The Community

After returning from the SkillsUSA Fall Leadership Conference that was a held upstate in Monroe County, Eastern Suffolk BOCES (ESBOCES) students at Islip Career Center (ICC) decided that helping out the local community was the first thing on their agenda. Doing things for others is the basis of many occupations, so SkillsUSA members strive to be active in their schools and communities. Service is

one aspect of the SkillsUSA Pledge along with honor, respect, upholding ideals, diligence, self-control, and commitment. Business Education Teacher Jean Murray said, “There are many families at ICC who may need assistance this holiday as Long Island is recovering from Superstorm Sandy and the economy.” The SkillsUSA students asked for non-perishable donations. They had enough for six baskets

that were raffled off “lottery fashion” to their peers in the building. The remaining food is being donated to local pantries in the Islip area to help other Long Island families. SkillsUSA is a certifying organization of the President’s Volunteer Service Award. Advisors, student members, and registered alumni can earn recognition for community service activities and time spent as a volunteer.

EDP Dental Plan

For more than 10 years, EDP Dental Plan of Ronkonkoma has provided Long Islanders with an affordable dental care plan. EDP developed a cost savings program that is available to anyone. EDP’s lowcost plan saves its members money on all dental procedures, from cleanings and exams to implants and braces. The discounts are given to the patient up front at the time of treatment to make it simple for the member to use. Jill from EDP Dental Plan says, “We have been able to address our members’ biggest concerns with the dentist - the cost. Many of our members have avoided the dentist because they are concerned with how much it will cost, and therefore don’t get the dental care they desperately need. EDP is bridging the gap between provider and patient by providing this cost-effective program that gives members

instant relief from the financial burden of dental care. EDP provides new patients for the dentist and instant savings for our members. People ask us all the time, ‘Why do dentists take EDP?’ It’s simple, to get new patients and encourage people to take better care of their teeth - you only get one set.” EDP Dental Plan is available to everyone, regardless of age, and has a low annual rate of $99 for a single person and $199 for family membership. With the EDP Dental Plan, you have unlimited access to all dental care and remarkable savings. If you are in need of dental care and are putting it off due to financial concerns, then call EDP today and find out how you can save money on your dental care. EDP Dental Plan will get you the care you need at a price you can afford. Call 877.327.8376 or enroll online at www. edpdental.com.

Corrections Community Service

The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office Correction Officer Recruits, as part of their Academy training, must now complete a community service project prior to graduation. Correction Officer Recruit Class 13-153 performed a successful food drive and will deliver their donation to the Lighthouse Mission in Bellport, on Friday, December 13th.

The recruits are scheduled to graduate on Friday, December 20th. Sheriff Vincent DeMarco implemented the community service requirement this summer to emphasize to new officers the importance of giving back to their communities, to encourage team building and to enhance morale. “I think it’s important

that members of law enforcement understand their roles as public servants. Community service is a way to reinforce that message, and it helps to foster important connections between our officers and the communities they are entrusted to serve,” stated DeMarco.

A Time For Rest & Relaxation

When I was in kindergarten, I wanted to be a policeman. When I was in fourth grade, I dreamed of becoming a pro football player. In middle school, I wanted to be a businessman. Now, as I am supposed to be finalizing the college application process, I have realized that I have no idea what I want to be. This is undoubtably the most important decision I have had to make in my life. Unsurprisingly, it is also the most stressful. Combined with the already demanding Advanced Placement course load, I am also

juggling clubs, sports and now dozens of college applications. There are so many tasks on the checklist that I call my daily routine that it is hard to cram them all into a twentyfour hour time period. Being a student is a fulltime job. Sure, I don’t have to worry about bills, and I don’t have many major responsibilities; but sometimes the stress is too much. As much as I enjoy going to school and being as involved as I am, there comes a time when I just need a break. Thankfully, in just a few days it will be Christmas Vacation.

Over two weeks off with no responsibilities. By then, I will be all done applying to college. The ball will be in their court. At that point, there will be nothing I can do but wait and hope my dream school makes the right decision. Once Christmas Vacation rolls around, I won’t have to worry about anything. I will finally be able to focus on having a great senior year. There is plenty of time to discover what career is right for me. For now, I am content just being a dedicated student, and more importantly, a happy kid.

Cornell Field Trip

SUFFOLK ZONE 6 - NEIGHBOR NEWSPAPERS - WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 18, 2013 • www.southbaysneighbor.com

Earl L. Vandermeulen High School students in Jonathan Maletta’s Advanced Placement environmental science class visited the Cornell Cooperative Extension, Long Island Horticultural Research Center in Riverhead on November 22nd. Students met with several scientists, including plant pathologist Margery Daughtery, entomologist Dan Gilrein and associate entomologist Dr. Faruque Zaman.

Animal Shelter Donation

“The students were actively engaged in discussion related to pathogenic agents, agricultural techniques, integrated pest management and genetically modified organisms,” said Maletta. “They discussed the advantages and disadvantages of GMOs and explored eco-friendly methods to disrupt the life cycle of pests in order to protect wine grapes and apple orchards on

the North Fork of Long Island.” The young scientists also weighed in on key topics related to the rapid spread of invasive species, such as the Asian long-horned beetle which destroys trees and the tiger mosquito, a carrier of Dengue Fever, found recently on Long Island. Lastly, students observed greenhouse facilities to examine how scientists set up controlled experiments to conduct Here’s dedication and research. persistence for you. In just 15 days, students from the Eastern Suffolk BOCES (ESBOCES) Animal Science Program at Brookhaven Technical Center (BTC) collected towels, food, bones, quilts, and $600.

Plymouth Rocks

The Edna Louise Spear Elementary School Scraggy Drama Club recently presented DrumStyx…or Plymouth Rocks! The Story of the First Thanksgiving, an original show about a modern-day family who have forgotten the real meaning of Thanksgiving. Under the direction of coadvisers Mary LaSita and Loraine Serabian, the 33 cast members put on a

spectacular performance that recounted the struggles encountered by Pilgrims during their voyage to America in the 1600s. “The students learned about the many aspects of putting on a musical production, including auditioning, memorizing lines, learning choreography and performing in front of an audience of their

peers,” said LaSita. “Scraggy Drama Club president Emily Hearney, choreographer Tammy Serabian and sound adviser Tom Serabian were also integral in making this such a successful experience.” The performance, the club’s eighth production, was attended by family, friends and members of the administration.

an animal unless incurably ill. Linda Mac Donald, office manager at Kent, accepted the $600 and other sundries saying that the donation would be “life changing” for the animals. “One hundred percent will go directly to the care and feeding of these homeless animals,” she said. The students said they heard a public service announcement (PSA) on the radio that Kent needed donations. They asked their teacher Lisa Mongiello if they could hold a fundraiser before Thanksgiving. They were determined and they raised the $600 by selling candy

grams and muffins. Ms. Mongiello said, “I am using the Mutt-igrees curriculum in my classroom. The goal is to develop and implement initiatives that support calm, confident, and caring kids. It’s an approach to teaching students social, emotional, and critical skills that will help them interacting with people and animals.” Students enrolled in the ESBOCES Animal Science Program are preparing themselves for careers related to working with animals. The course affords advanced college credit from Suffolk County Community College.

Supplies For Furry Friends Nassakeag Elementary School third-graders have been coordinating a holiday collection drive for the animals at Brookhaven Animal Shelter. The monthlong initiative

has raised hundreds of items for the less fortunate animals, as students, their families and staff members donated food items, new toys and gently used blankets to the worthy

cause. The students helped to publicize their grade-level initiative by fashioning creative posters to display around the school.

Zoning In scholastic abilities and leadership qualities,” said Debra Ferry, Port Jefferson director of health, physical education and athletics. “Their performance and participation in physical education has earned them this well-deserved recognition.” The award, given by the Suffolk Zone of the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, is

presented to one male and one female nominee from each Suffolk County high school. Also in attendance were the students’ family members, Port Jefferson School District physical education teachers Dinarae Camarda, Andrew Cosci and James Mimnaugh, Earl L. Vandermeulen High School Principal Dr. Matthew Murphy and Ferry.

College Commitments State University, while Samantha will compete on Hofstra University’s lacrosse team. The two students were recently commended for this accomplishment by Erin Blaney, executive director for health, physical education, recreation and

athletics. “Once you are a part of the Ward Melville family, you are always a Patriot,” Ms. Blaney said. “We wish you well in your future and look forward to hearing about all of your successes to come.”

COLLEGE COMMITMENTS - Ward Melville High School seniors Samantha Torrico and Kathryn Charpin have signed National Letters of Intent with Hofstra University and Penn State University, respectively. The two are pictured here with Erin Blaney, executive director for health, physical education, recreation and athletics, and Assistant Principal Rosanne DiBella.

Dr. Elizabeth Kelso, a Ward Melville High School English teacher, was named the first-place grant winner in the national 2013 Penguin Random House Teacher Award for Literacy competition. The $10,000 award was bestowed upon Dr. Kelso in support of her Living Book Project, which was determined by Random House to be the most innovative and original project with the greatest impact on readers and the community. “In this time of new standards and specific learning structures and processes, Random House’s support of The Living Book Project reiterates a shared value and belief that we want children to come together in their learning in the most basic and human ways, around story, experience and thoughtful dialogue,” said Dr. Kelso. Dr. Kelso was presented with the award by Tony Danza this November during the National Conference of Teachers of English in Boston. In addition to the application work completed by Dr. Kelso, Ward Melville High School seniors Sylvia Chen and Grace Molino supported the writing of the grant by submitting letters in support of the program. Last year’s Living Book Project brought together 240 students from several diverse Long

Island high schools for a daylong conference founded in literacy and rich in educational benefits. The project was an interdisciplinary experience that brought high school students together to learn, share ideas and collectively reflect on Rebecca Skloot’s New York Times bestseller “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.” Ms. Lacks’ story began more than 60 years ago when her cancer cells were harvested without her knowledge; these cells, now known as HeLa cells, have become one of the most important tools in modern medicine, vital for genome research and progress in the fields of in vitro fertilization, cloning and vaccine development. The book challenged readers to broaden their thinking on subjects such as bioethics, literacy, history, sociology, race and social class in America, cultural diversity, ethics and patients’ rights. Each attendee was provided with a copy of the book prior to the event and asked to complete it by the date of the program. During the event, the themes found within the book were depicted theatrically and visually and were discussed at length during interactive dialogues between attendees. A similar event, centered on the graphic novel “The

Complete Persepolis” by Marjane Satrapi, is planned for this spring. Students in Dr. Kelso’s 11th-grade AP English Language and Composition classes (now high school seniors) did the research and groundwork for the 2014 program by reading “Persepolis,” researching Stony Brook University and community resources, and writing up workshop proposals. Their work was instrumental in building the second Living Book Project.

Learning About Community whether the various stores provided goods, services or both. After coming to a consensus, the class spoke with shop owners to confirm if their predictions were accurate. During their trip, the students received a tour of both Chase Bank and Strathmore Bagels, where they learned how a bagel is made from start to finish and even taste-tested a few

creations. As a follow-up, each student selected a place in the community to study in depth. After researching their locations, the students created a model of the store or place and then presented their creations to the class in early December. The completed projects were put on display in the school’s library.

LEARNING ABOUT COMMUNITY - As a culmination to a study on community, Arrowhead Elementary School second-grade students in Rosemary Ullrich’s class created models of several businesses in town.

Eastern Suffolk BOCES (ESBOCES) Career and Technical Adult Education (CTAE) Program is pleased to announce they have received a $2,500 WalMart Local Community Contribution Grant. The CTAE Program at the ESBOCES H.B. Ward Career and Technical Center (WCTC) in Riverhead will offer the community an opportunity to attend career readiness training workshops that will educate the community on the array of services ESBOCES has to offer. Services include programs that meet the

employment needs of Long Island’s workforce; Adult Basic Education/Adult Secondary Education classes and English for Speakers of Other Languages. Wal-Mart believes in operating globally and giving back locally. Through the Local Giving Program, Walmart can support the needs of their communities by providing grants to local organizations. Administrative Coordinator for Adult Education Vicki McGrath said, “The goal of this initiative is to help the

long-term unemployed reenter the workforce as well as to help students find their first job.” All students will have access to the WCTC Employment Resource Center. Program Administrator Donna Singer said, “The Center can provide students with guidance, skill development, and career building opportunities that will be useful throughout their lifetime as they choose to enter the workforce, change their careers, or advance their careers.”

TRUSTEE SWORN IN - Arthur Cliff, second from right, a 38-year veteran of the Suffolk County Police Department and Superior Officers Association was sworn in as a Suffolk County Community College Trustee on December 5th. Cliff, of Sayville, was appointed by the Suffolk County Legislature on December 3rd, 2013, to fill out the term of former Trustee Saul Fenchel. Cliff’s term expires on June 30, 2014. Joining Cliff were from left, Dafny Irizarry, Chairwoman of the College’s Board of Trustees, Deputy Suffolk County Clerk Christopher Cuomo who administered the oath of office, and Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun McKay.

Bond Resolution Approved

After considerable discussion, the Three Village Central School District’s Board of Education has voted to move forward with plans for a districtwide school improvement project and has set a community vote date of Tuesday, February 4th. With the Board’s approval, residents within the school district will have the chance to vote on the proposed plan, which will maximize efficiencies with respect to both financing and building integrity. If voters approve the project, all district schools – which range in age from 42 to 62 years old – will see significant repairs to aging infrastructure. The plan – dubbed by the Board The Efficiency Project – includes upgrades to major building systems such as heating and cooling ventilators, boilers, plumbing and electrical, as well as instructional spaces and areas of school security. Additional projects include window replacement, masonry repairs, replacement of asbestos floor tiles, interior and exterior doors, reconstruction of curbing and masonry, and installation of backup generators, as well as the replacement of school corridor lockers and folding gymnasium partitions at secondary schools. Athletic spaces, including the high school track and

field event areas and the exterior bleachers, will also be replaced. Continuing with the district’s alternative high school initiative and as a possible source of revenue, spaces at North Country will be converted to create a vocational program for the Three Village Academy. After a thorough analysis by the district’s business office, the bonding of these inevitable projects is deemed to be more financially efficient than rolling them into the district’s annual operating budget. “Building systems, much like one’s home, require constant attention and repair in order to preserve their integrity and usefulness,” said Board of Education President Dr. Jeffrey Kerman. “By bonding these projects together, we are not only able to address systems that have exceeded their useful life within a short period of time, but also lessen the impact on our taxpayers, as twothirds of the project will be paid for by the state. If we had to add these projects into our annual operating budget, it would cripple our finances and ultimately divert funds away from our educational program for the next 10 to 12 years.” The total anticipated cost of the project is $56.156 million. Of this amount, 66 percent will be funded

through New York State building aid. For the average household in the district, the project would cost approximately $119 a year or $10 a month over the term of the bond. The impact would begin in the 2015-2016 school year and run for 15 years. “Within the tax cap era, school districts are being forced to choose between funding educational programs and performing necessary building maintenance projects,” said Superintendent of Schools Cheryl Pedisich. “This bond allows us to address that reality in the most efficient way possible and enables us to allocate our operating budget toward creating appropriate class sizes and funding programs and services for students.” On February 4th, community residents will have the opportunity to vote on the proposal. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. at neighborhood elementary schools. For more information on the building renovation project, including a list of improvements planned for each school, please visit the district’s website, www. threevillagecsd.org.

Hey there little girl, Why are you crying On a “sunny” day? Where’s the mask that Should be covering your face?

SUFFOLK ZONE 6 - NEIGHBOR NEWSPAPERS - WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 18, 2013 • www.southbaysneighbor.com

Hey there little girl, Come sit with me, And I will explain why You must keep the darkness inside. Allow your heart to be Swallowed whole By the troubles you Feel that are your own.

Their smiles turn to frowns When they see Your little tears rundown Your face. They begin to think That you are weak And start to feel pity For you. They begin to look at you as prey.

Your mask Of “happiness” Will fool Everyone around you, And give back what You accidently took From them.

Send Us Your Best Pics To Be Featured

The people dance and sing With their “glee,” And masks in place, While you walk with the people, Revealing what must be Hidden from judging eyes.

Look around you, And see the smiling faces All around you and me. They too, Have despise and troubles, Just like you, But they still manage to Keep their masks on.

“Let’s Go Fly A Kite” Photo by: Melissa Armenia, North Babylon

Hey there little girl, Your sadness is strong But it won’t last forever. The fear and pain Will become numb someday. Allowing you to put a Plaster smile on your face.

Then everything will Be almost normal again. And that is why, Little girl, You must wear your mask Every minute of every day.
