Three Cheers

When it comes to natural gas pipelines, there’s no such thing as too safe. Delivering safe, reliable natural gas service to our customers is our top priority. Pipeline safety is something we take very seriously at National Grid. Even though most lines are buried underground, that doesn’t mean you can ignore them. Keep your family and community safe by helping to prevent gas leaks. Always call New York 811 at 811 or 1-800-272-4480 before you dig.

If you smell, see or hear any of those indications, leave the area immediately, then call National Grid at 1-800-490-0045. Be smart and be safe. Know what’s below — call before you dig and know the signs of a gas leak. Visit www.nationalgrid.com for additional safety information.

264934N1225

Know the signs of a gas leak. We’ve added a spoiled egg smell that makes natural gas easier to identify. Look for bubbles in standing water, a white cloudy mist or blowing dust, which indicates that an underground gas line may have ruptured; or, listen for a hissing, roaring or whistling sound.

Long Island’s very own professional baseball team, the Long Island Ducks, were a big hit with patients at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital during a special visit for the holidays. Former New York Met Bud Harrelson, co-owner and Senior VP of Baseball Operations of the Ducks was joined by team mascot QuackerJack and radio station B103’s The Wiseman and Frank. QuackerJack, flopped

his way around the whole inpatient pediatric unit at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital on December 17th, bringing wrapped toys to hospitalized patients. Autographs were signed, photos were snapped and there were even a few glimpses of Harrelson’s 1986 World Championship ring, which he received while playing for the Mets. The visit was part of the Ducks’ annual Holiday Toy

Drive, where QuackerJack and team members deliver toys to children in pediatric units in hospitals across Long Island. The month-long effort resulted in hundreds of children receiving toys this holiday season. Popular to thousands of families on Long Island, the Ducks are members of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball and play locally at Bethpage Ballpark in Central Islip.

Recruits Show Spirit

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 delivered boxes of food and other household items to the Lighthouse Mission in Bellport on Friday, December 13th. The Class planned and implemented the project

as a group, and also made the decision to choose the Lighthouse Mission as their community service recipient. According to Wendy Wood, Lighthouse Mission’s Executive Director, the food they collected will go to families in need all over Suffolk County. “These are families that are hurting economically and struggling to feed their children.” She added, “We are so grateful for the

food delivered to us from the Correction Officer Recruits. We can see they have a heart to serve the community.” County Sheriff Vincent DeMarco recently implemented the community service requirement to emphasize to new officers the importance of giving back to their communities, and this was the first group to engage in the new initiative.

May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

As you are reading this, I have already found out my first college decision. Hopefully, I was accepted. Unfortunately, the odds are not in my favor. As a college that accepts a fraction of its applicants, my dream school is certainly not a guaranteed acceptance for me. As you can already tell, I am not willing to divulge the name, as I am afraid to jinx myself. As much as I want to attend that school, the ball is in their court. Early last year, I developed my love for the college. Hopefully, this love is not platonic. I sent in my application over two months ago, on my birthday. I have been

stressing out over their decision ever since. As I am writing this, mile marker zero is less than eighteen and a half hours away. Next week, you will be hearing if I made it in or not. It was a scary road, going from a kid to an adult in just a few months. During the summer, I knew that the time was approaching; but as soon as September hit, my college application game was kicked into overdrive. Hopefully, I will never have to apply to another college again. With any luck, I have already gotten into the school I have fallen in love with. There is no doubt in my

mind that this school is right for me. If only the admissions officers could read my articles, they would know just how interested I am. All of my hard work will boil down to one of two words in a letter from that college. The first line of that letter will read either “congratulations” or “unfortunately.” Preferably, it will be the former, but everything happens for a reason. I will be content wherever I end up attending, even though I will never be able to shake that possible feeling of rejection. Stay tuned...

Ghosts Of Christmas Past By: Jamie Lynn Ryan As I prepare to host my very first holiday gathering – well, any gathering really – in my new apartment this Christmas Eve, I cannot help but reflect upon the many wonderful memories from past celebrations, most of which took place in the comfort and warmth of Grandma and Grandpa’s house. With the passing of my grandmother earlier this year, there was an immediate sense that this holiday season would be a bit different. So many years – decades, really – spent gathered around the big dining room table each Christmas Eve, of “helping” Grandma bake her famous Christmas cookies (basically watching and waiting and then sneaking a couple as soon as they came out of the

oven), of marveling at the gigantic Christmas tree and the beautiful decorations… of hoping that, one day, I would be lucky enough to have a house as beautiful and as full of love as Grandma and Grandpa’s. Well, my little apartment gathering may be coming together on a bit of a smaller scale, but the sentiment is the same. Any time family and loved ones get together to celebrate, memories are made – and preserved for future generations to appreciate, and add to. My only hope is that they are never lost. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to put together a project back in college for my Family Literacy class which asked us to illustrate one family tradition through words and photographs, providing details

and dialogue, recipes and anecdotes, creating a scrapbook of memories. I chose Christmas Eve and all the traditions that came with it for my family for the first 20 or so years of my life… from our traditional “table photo” taken from the top of the staircase, to my Uncle Al, also since passed, mixing the martinis as we arrived and, later on, after the first three or so courses of dinner, fighting with me for that last fried shrimp. How precious that project is today. By the time you read this, my little celebration will have come and gone, and with it, new memories made. Who knows, maybe one day it will become the stuff of scrapbook legend! Either way, I know I will have at least two angels watching over things to make sure all goes smoothly.

Four professional hockey players from the New York Islanders played Santa on December 18th and scored big points with hospitalized children at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. Leaving their skates and sticks at the rink, forward Eric Boulton (#36), defensemen Aaron Ness (#55) and Radek Martinek (#4) along with goalie Kevin Poulin (#60), delivered toys, other gifts, and good cheer to the patients and their families. During the previous week, the Islanders took a break from the ice to go on a shopping spree to choose gifts ranging from board

games to Barbie dolls to bring to Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. About 70 patients, along with family members, received visits from the players. The foursome walked through the entire inpatient pediatric unit and the pediatric unit at Stony Brook University Cancer Center. They were able to spend some time with the kids and signed autographs, took pictures and gave away those famous blue and orange team teeshirts. The Islanders even gave out ticket vouchers to some of the families, good for any date their children were out of the hospital and well-enough to attend

a game. The visit was organized by the Child Life Program at Stony Brook Children’s and the New York Islanders. Through the Child Life Program at Stony Brook Children’s, professionals provide therapeutic, educational, and recreational activities to meet the unique emotional and developmental needs of hospitalized children. Activities include medical play therapy, games, arts and crafts, as well as specialized programs such as animal assisted therapy, music therapy, and birthday and holiday parties.

Open House Sessions Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck is hosting a series of six open houses for prospective campers and families of children and young adults with special needs over the next several months. Parents should bring their child if he/she will be a new camper in order to allow them to get a sense of the camp and what they will experience throughout the summer. During the tour, parents will have a chance to meet the staff — the camp’s director, nurse and office manager — and ask questions or address any concerns that they might have. They will have the opportunity to view the entire camp and explore the different areas dedicated for various activities such as arts and crafts, adaptive sports, games, etc. The open houses will be held on the following dates and times: January 20th, from 1 to 5 p.m. February 17th, from 12 to 5 p.m. February 20th, from 7 to 11 a.m. March 9th, from 5 to 8 p.m.

April 4th, from 4 to 8 p.m. May 17th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck is a resident summer camp serving children and young adults ages six to 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 and quality program of camping, recreation, and education.

Throughout the program, campers participate in many activities, such as arts and crafts, talent shows, cookouts, swimming and boating. The camp is located on Chet Swezey Road in Center Moriches. Advance registration is recommended, but not required. For directions or more information, please 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. This is Michael Sceiford, your Edward Jones financial advisor located at 903 Main Street, Port Jefferson NY 11777 631-928-2034 Member SIPC:

If You Aren’t at Your Last Job, Why Is Your 401(k)? Leaving a 401(k) with a previous employer could mean leaving it alone with no one to watch over it. At Edward Jones, we can explain options for your 401(k) and help you select the one that’s best for you. 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.

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.

Spreading Christmas Cheer

are sick, especially over the holidays,” said Good Samaritan Hospital’s Child Life Program Director Joan Alpers. “Having these star athletes spend time with the children certainly brightens their day.” Among those visited was Islander fan Travis Semcken. He shared his recent experience of being given a puck at an Islander game. The players were very taken by Travis’ spirit and enthusiasm for the sport. He will be attending a game in the near future compliments of the team.

“Visiting with the children is the least we can do. Being able to put smiles on the faces of these kids, even for a moment, makes it all worth it,” said Visnovsky. The players went from room to room, discussing sports, TV episodes, how often they get hurt in a game and whatever else the children wanted to talk about. For more information about Good Samaritan’s Child Life Program, call 631.376.4444.

County Executive Bellone was joined by Suffolk County FRES staff, Philippine General Counsel, and members of the Suffolk County Asian American Advisory Board to announce the donation of six thousand MRE’s and ten thousand bottles of water to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. “Today, we are here to announce the shipment of much needed supplies to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan,” said County

Executive Bellone. “As the country continues search and recovery in the midst of catastrophic damage and human suffering, Suffolk County has donated surplus supplies of MRE’s and water. I am happy to be in a position to assist those who are truly suffering from the devastating effects of Typhoon Haiyan.” “I would like to personally thank Belle Pagdanganan and Ramon Villongco from the Suffolk County Asian American Advisory Board

for reaching out to FRES regarding surplus supplies and for securing a company, ABS-CBN Foundation to ship the supplies free of charge. Their continued commitment to serving all of the residents of Suffolk County is to be commended. Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines in early November. It was the deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, killing over 6,000 people in that country alone.

Putting Lessons To Music Nassakeag Elementary School fourth-grade students tested their creative skills when musician, songwriter and storyteller Susan Trump visited the school to conduct a multidisciplinary program. The songwriting-inresidency workshop

enabled the students to use their English language arts and music skills to compose a song about a book they had read as a class. Each class selected a story that incorporated the themes found in their character education and anti-bullying program, Rachel’s Challenge, and

worked with Ms. Trump to spotlight the positive behaviors displayed at the conclusion of each story. The students met daily with Ms. Trump during the course of a week and performed their songs at a closing assembly for their parents.

Composition Performed

his orchestral piece, Black Fog, resound off the walls of the concert hall at Adelphi University when the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra’s Suffolk Principal Orchestra performed the selection this December. The piece, which Nick composed in approximately a week, was performed under the Ward Melville High direction of Phil Preddice, School senior Nick O’Brien a retired music educator had the chance to hear from the Three Village Central School District.

Inspirational Guest Speaker

In addition to having composed the piece, Nick was also the principal violist for the orchestra. While the viola is his primary instrument, Nick, who has been very involved in music since a young age, is also familiar with and comfortable playing most instruments. He plans to major in music composition at college in the fall.

W.S. Mount Elementary School second-grade students in Phylene Fizzuoglio’s class were inspired to not let any obstacles get in the way of the dreams and goals they set for themselves when two special guests visited their classroom. Parent and ghostwriter Jenna Glatzer was joined by Scott Rigsby, the man behind her book UnThinkable, to speak with students about the events that led up to Mr. Rigsby’s successful quest to be the first double amputee to complete

the Hawaiian Ironman Triathlon. Mr. Rigsby explained to students how he lost both legs and what inspired him to accomplish something he had never dreamed of. “Today’s ‘unthinkables’ are tomorrow’s realities,” he said. “I had a dream that was bigger than me, but I did not let my fears get in my way because I had the faith that I was playing a role in a bigger story that would give hope to others.” Mr. Rigsby explained how it took more than a year and a half to learn

how to complete the tasks in the event, which included swimming, riding a bike and running a long distance. He also showed students the different prosthetic legs he had used during the competition and held a brief questionand-answer session. “I love to write books about people who have overcome challenges and am proud to have remained friends with Mr. Rigsby,” said Ms. Glatzer, who has written 22 books to date.

Santa was the guest of honor at the annual Breakfast with Santa event at The Children’s Center at United Cerebral Palsy of Suffolk in Commack on Saturday, December 7th. The very special and jolly guest arrived dressed in a red and white fur suit and was greeted by scores of children with disabilities who attend the Children’s Center. Staff and parents worked diligently to transform the school’s gymnasium

into a winter wonderland. Families welcomed the opportunity to have their picture taken with Santa and participated in the elaborate raffle. Over 200 children and adults enjoyed a hearty breakfast made possible by the generosity of The Louro Family and Professional Group Plans. “Seeing the excitement on the children’s faces when Santa arrived was priceless. Our volunteers and staff did a wonderful job. There was so much

warmth and caring in the room, it was wonderful. We are also very grateful to The Louro Family and Professional Group Plans for returning as the sponsor of our breakfast. Their generous sponsorship helped make this another joyous holiday season for so many,” said Sherri Glazer, Principal/ Director of Education Services of the Children’s Center at UCP Suffolk.

Winners Showcase The Smithtown Township Arts Council is pleased to announce Winners Showcase 2014, an exhibition featuring the work of award-winning artists from STAC’s 2013-juried exhibitions, to be held January 18th – February 20th at The Mills Pond House Gallery in St. James. The public is invited to an opening reception Saturday, January 18th, 2 to 4 p.m. to meet exhibiting artists and view their work. Regular Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 12 noon to 4 p.m. Closed January 20th & February 17th. Call 631.862.6575 for more information. Admission to the gallery is free. Stony Brook artist Judy Contrino is a self-taught artist who has been drawing and crafting all of her life. She paints with both acrylic and watercolor and enjoys using vibrant colors and contrast. She creates portraits in pencil and charcoal. Judith hopes her paintings move people and make them smile. Massachusetts Artist Alice Denison focuses on flowers in her art. “The flowers that interest me most are the ones on wallpaper, fabric, and paintings — the decorative ones, the ones that make no claim to meaning. The ones we walk on, sit on, eat on, sleep on, and wear… the backdrop flowers. Because these decorative flowers almost always remind me of something, some time, or someone, they have meaning. Because the meaning is associative, it is mysterious, and its mystery makes it

more interesting still. It is this glimmering to life of an inert form that sparks my work.” Commack artist Lisa Fernandez has been a teacher and art educator on Long Island for 25 years. Working in oils, Lisa’s large-scale still life paintings use of bold colors and strong contrast. Lisa’s close attention to detail and composition skills allow her to create strikingly beautiful images. Amal is a fine artist and illustrator from Port Jefferson who delights in having brushes in her hands and bringing stories to life. Her illustrations sit somewhere between fantasy and realism and the theater has been an inspiration for many of her pieces. Amal has provided numerous illustrations to children’s book publishers and editorial publications. She also teaches illustration and drawing. Port Jefferson artist Michael Kutzing is a self-taught painter who worked in the construction industry for 37 years. Over the years he collected maritime paintings and was inspired to attempt painting himself. He was encouraged by those who saw his work to continue painting. Thirty paintings and several shows later he continues to grow as an artist. Setauket artist Elizabeth Louise sketched her drawings live during rehearsals at Theatre Three in Port Jefferson. “Capturing the character of actors on stage is a challenge. I do not have the luxury of having them pose for me

Season Of Giving

during rehearsals. My degree from Maryland Institute College of Art gave me the training and confidence to combine, decades later, my sketching skills with my first love in the arts…theatre.” In the words of Brooklyn artist, printmaker, and bookmaker PD Packard, “There is an absolute law of harmony, accessible to all, that is an endless source of inspiration and knowledge that I rely upon when creating and executing my artwork.” A storyteller through her prints, watercolors and hand-bound books, PD Packard’s work is truly unique and thought provoking. Centereach artist Courtney Surmanek is a current bachelor of Fine Arts candidate at New York University, completing her final year. Courtney, who works in several different mediums including video, performance and material art, looks at art as a means toward community development and social change. She is excited to help young people develop the skills necessary to expand their scope of what art can do for the world Mount Sinai artist Burton Woods’ realistic paintings are inspired by places that are slowly changing or disappearing: quiet, flower-bordered lanes, brick walks, weathered wooden buildings and boats, sandy beaches and wind-swept marshes. Mr. Woods captures the essence of Long Island in his pastels and oils, sketching on site and completing his work in his home studio.

Lighthouse Events The Fire Island Lighthouse Preservation Society will present the following events: New Year’s Day Hike & Lighthouse Tower Tour Wednesday, January 1st, at 10 a.m. Meet at the Robert Moses State Park Field #5. Join for a guided walk around

The Ward Melville High School theater company brought to life the beloved characters of the Disney classic Beauty and the Beast. The performances ran during the second weekend in December and included a special meetand-greet with performers prior to Saturday’s

matinee. The talented cast of student-actors and pit musicians began rehearsing in September, while members of the stage crew sketched and finalized the elaborate backdrops and sets leading up to opening night. Ward Melville vocal teacher

Linda Contino directed the production, which involved more than 70 students in the cast, 50 students in the pit and 20 working with the stage crew. As the curtain closed on this year’s musical, audiences left ready to “be our guest” at next year’s show.

Beauty And The Beast

Throughout the holiday season, students, faculty and staff members in the Three Village Central School District organized service projects aimed at assisting members of the local and global community. W.S. Mount, Setauket and Minnesauke elementary schools worked to make the holiday season a bright one for local families with holiday giving trees and a “Griffin the Giving Penguin” initiative at Mount. Hundreds of toys, clothes and gift cards were purchased through the collective drives and donated to local families. P.J. Gelinas Junior High School students once again competed in a “Floor Wars” holiday toy

drive. Pitting the first floor homerooms against the second, students worked to see which floor could collect the most donations during the multi-week drive. The hundreds of new toys were delivered to the Town of Brookhaven’s Toys for Kids Drive just before the holiday break. This year’s Floor Wars collected more than 300 toys, which was combined with a sizable donation from the students, parents and PTA at Nassakeag Elementary School. R.C. Murphy Junior High School students and staff once again teamed up with Arrowhead and Minnesauke elementary schools to complete a stuff-a-truck toy drive for the Gerald Ryan Outreach

Center in Wyandanch. The program, which has been coordinated for the past 26 years by Murphy school psychologist Jeff Pomerantz, generated hundreds of toy donations for the less fortunate children in Suffolk County. R.C. Murphy’s community connections club collected many new outdoor clothing items for FSO, which has 95 programs in 118 locations across Long Island and provides services for families in need. In addition, the club partnered with SHARP to make holiday cookies, which were included in baskets delivered to approximately 22 district families.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST - Ward Melville High School student-actors performed Beauty and the Beast as this year’s school musical.

Furry Friend

To help build their confidence and enhance their fluency as readers, sixth-graders in Stacy Glover’s classes at Rocky Point Middle School are fine-tuning their literacy skills with the help of a new furry classmate – Eileen, a 6 year-old black Labrador. As part of the building’s Systems 44 and Read180 program, the students will have the chance to practice reading aloud to Eileen twice a month throughout the school year. Working both in small groups and individually, the students will take turns practicing

this important skill as part of their participation in the program. “We are really looking forward to this new initiative, as it is designed to help our students build upon the skills they are learning in the classroom,” said Ms. Glover. “At the secondary level, students don’t often have as much ‘real aloud’ time as they would in the younger grades, yet that is an important skill for them to master. By practicing with a captive audience, such as the dog, they will be

able to build presentation confidence and enhance their oral language skills and fluency. We also hope it will build their motivation for reading and help them feel more confident as readers.” Eileen is certified as a pet therapy dog through the Patchogue Rotary Animal Assisted Therapy organization. During her visits to the classroom, she will be accompanied by dog handler Jo-Ann Goldwasser, who is also a retired teacher.

Building upon their team’s 22nd consecutive Suffolk County Championship season, four members of the Ward Melville High School girls varsity swimming and diving team advanced to the New York State Championship this year, where they captured gold in the 200 medley relay. The swimmers – Rachael Bertini, Casey Gavigan, Sarah Schoenfeld and

Cassandra Willie – swam the race in 1:48.38. Their time in the preliminary round was 1:48.11, which is a new Ward Melville record and an All-American consideration time. They are coached at Ward Melville by Chris Gordon and Jeff Perfetti. “The amount of time, effort, talent and commitment needed to qualify and win at this level of competition is

incredible,” said Erin Blaney, the district’s executive director for health, physical education, recreation and athletics, at a recent Board of Education meeting where the swimmers were honored. “We are so proud of their accomplishments and congratulate them and their coaches on this exceptional achievement.”

Inspirational Author Visits

In keeping with a school tradition, Rocky Point Middle School students were given an inside look at the world of journalism when this year’s visiting author, Tim Green, came to the school. The New York Times bestselling author, also a lawyer and former professional football star, spoke with the school’s sixth- through eighth-grade students about how he got his start as an author, as well as the passion and determination behind all of his life choices. Throughout the assembly, Mr. Green stressed the importance of education as he compared reading to “weight lifting

for the brain.” He pointed out that although luck may play a role in one’s success, the true defining characteristics of an achieving individual are talent and work ethic. “I always wanted to write books that people could get lost in,” said Mr. Green, adding that he could always be found with a book in his hand. After sharing a bit about his other passion, athletics, he reminded the students, “Make sure you work just as hard in school as you do in sports. Everything you put into your education will pay you back and will be there to help you succeed in the future.” In closing, Mr. Green

read aloud the first chapter of his young adult novel “Unstoppable” and met with young fans in the school’s library to autograph copies of his captivating novels. To further encourage youngsters to develop a lifelong love for reading, Mr. Greene donated $1,500 worth of books to the middle school students. Prior to his visit, middle school students Kaileigh Blessing and Rebecca Schmidt added a painted copy of the front of Mr. Green’s novel “Perfect Season” to the visiting author’s mural, which is located outside the library and depicts book jackets from past speakers.

Santa Paws Visits

Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center, Inc. celebrated the holiday season on Saturday, December 7th and Sunday, December 8th by hosting its annual “Santa Paws” event at the shelter’s retail location, Save-A-Pet on the Sound, in Port Jefferson. Over 100 families came with their furry friends to support Save-A-Pet. Families had the opportunity to receive photos of their pets and children on Santa Paws’

lap for a low price of $10 and each additional photo for $5. All proceeds went to benefit the shelter and its spay-and-neuter programs. Attendees instantly received a 4x6-inch printed photo at their visit. Save-APet wanted to ensure that guests could present their endearing photo to family and friends directly after the festive event and in time for the holidays. “We were overwhelmed with excitement after seeing loving families

with their pets at our event,” says Dori Scofield, Founder/President of Save-A-Pet. “We knew it would be a perfect holiday photo opportunity for families because everyone, including pets, would be able to take part.” For more information on the “Santa Paws” event or general adoption inquiries, please contact Save-A-Pet at 631.473.6333 or visit www.saveapetli.org.

By: Peggy Bayer, Islip I can touch my nose and I can count my toes. I can walk and talk and climb and run Just because it’s so much fun. I can be boisterous and loud Or shy and quiet lost in a crowd. I can run on tiptoes and sneak around the house. And when you’re looking for me, I can be quiet as a mouse. I have no inhibitions and will run naked all around Wet and dripping from the bath, without a towel found. Do I embarrass you? It’s so much fun for me! I’ll do the most outrageous things when you have company. I dumped the garbage on the floor and put your makeup on the cat. And when I tried to play dress-up, I ruined your best hat. And then you cried in woe and asked me why? I told you “I don’t know” – I didn’t have to lie. How can I do all this to you? How can I be so bold? I know you love me anyway; I’m only two years old.

Furry Friend

SUFFOLK ZONE 6 - NEIGHBOR NEWSPAPERS - WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 25, 2013 • www.southbaysneighbor.com

To help build their confidence and enhance their fluency as readers, sixth-graders in Stacy Glover’s classes at Rocky Point Middle School are fine-tuning their literacy skills with the help of a new furry classmate – Eileen, a 6 year-old black Labrador. As part of the building’s Systems 44 and Read180 program, the students will have the chance to practice reading aloud to Eileen twice a month throughout the school year. Working both in small groups and individually, the students will take turns practicing

this important skill as part of their participation in the program. “We are really looking forward to this new initiative, as it is designed to help our students build upon the skills they are learning in the classroom,” said Ms. Glover. “At the secondary level, students don’t often have as much ‘real aloud’ time as they would in the younger grades, yet that is an important skill for them to master. By practicing with a captive audience, such as the dog, they will be

able to build presentation confidence and enhance their oral language skills and fluency. We also hope it will build their motivation for reading and help them feel more confident as readers.” Eileen is certified as a pet therapy dog through the Patchogue Rotary Animal Assisted Therapy organization. During her visits to the classroom, she will be accompanied by dog handler Jo-Ann Goldwasser, who is also a retired teacher.

Building upon their team’s 22nd consecutive Suffolk County Championship season, four members of the Ward Melville High School girls varsity swimming and diving team advanced to the New York State Championship this year, where they captured gold in the 200 medley relay. The swimmers – Rachael Bertini, Casey Gavigan, Sarah Schoenfeld and

Cassandra Willie – swam the race in 1:48.38. Their time in the preliminary round was 1:48.11, which is a new Ward Melville record and an All-American consideration time. They are coached at Ward Melville by Chris Gordon and Jeff Perfetti. “The amount of time, effort, talent and commitment needed to qualify and win at this level of competition is

incredible,” said Erin Blaney, the district’s executive director for health, physical education, recreation and athletics, at a recent Board of Education meeting where the swimmers were honored. “We are so proud of their accomplishments and congratulate them and their coaches on this exceptional achievement.”

Soccer Team Recognized

Dickens Fest

Students from throughout the Port Jefferson School District helped bring holiday spirit to the Village of Port Jefferson during the annual Dickens Festival from December 6th through 8th. Spectacular musical performances by the Edna Louise Spear Elementary School select choir, Port Jefferson Middle School seventh- and eighth-grade

string orchestra and Earl L. Vandermeulen High School chamber choir, orchestra and holiday jazz trio filled the First Presbyterian Church on Main Street. On December 7th, members of the Port Jefferson Middle School Drama Club, led by club president Cole Fortier and co-advisers Mary LaSita and Loraine Serabian,

performed select songs from the musical “Oliver,” based on the Charles Dickens novel “Oliver Twist.” Additionally, four students from the middle school and high school were named winners of the Dickens Poetry Contest. The young authors recited their original works on the festival’s opening evening.

The Earl L. Vandermeulen High School varsity girls soccer team, along with coach Winnie Kuemmel and JV coach Ally Wolff, was recognized at the Suffolk County Girls Soccer Association Dinner in November for their season’s accomplishments.

The league champion team was awarded the Suffolk County Soccer Officials Sportsmanship Award. Additionally, eight of the players received individual awards. Recognized athletes: Jill Colucci – freshman Danielle Grier – senior

(NAPSI)—Granite countertops are the most popular option available when it comes to kitchen or bathroom remodeling. They look great, they’re durable, but they can also cost thousands of dollars. Granite requires special care and attention because it’s a natural stone. Here are a few tips to help you protect your investment:

• Seal your countertops: According to the Marble Institute of America, an industry group, granite countertops should be sealed so that the stone is more resistant to dirt and spills. Check with the manufacturer or retailer about the best kind of sealer to use on food preparation areas. • Be careful what

you clean with: Never use ammonia—based products-or cleaners containing vinegar, lemon or orange—on your granite countertops. Avoid abrasive cleaners such as dry or soft cleansers. Don’t use cleaning products that contain acid such as bathroom, grout, or tub and tile cleaners. Specialty granite cleaners can be

used, but they can be expensive. There’s a way to stretch your dollars. • Mind your budget: JAWS Glass & Hard Surface Cleaner (www.jawscleans. com) cleans granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, glass and even your flat-screen TV. It’s also non-toxic and costs less than most other cleaners because each

JAWS product is actually two bottles in one. (The cartridge refill is attached to the bottle.) There are also some other basic preventive measures you can take to protect your granite countertops: • Use coasters: Place a coaster under all glasses, particularly those containing alcohol or

citrus juices that can etch or dull the surface of many stone countertops. • Use trivets or mats: They’ll protect your granite countertop from hot dishes and help avoid scratches. Granite countertops can really add spark to a kitchen or bathroom. Proper care will keep them looking beautiful.
