The snowflakes stopped falling moments before Brookhaven’s famous groundhog offered this year’s prediction — it was a good omen of what is to come. More than 100 residents cheered as the famed Town of Brookhaven groundhog, Holtsville Hal, did not see his shadow, an indicator that spring would come early this year. Conversely, Malverne Mel saw his shadow, calling for six more weeks of winter. Their more famous relative, Punxsutawney Phil, agreed with Mel while perched on a stump in his home state of Pennsylvania. Staten Island Chuck went the way of Hal. Town Highway Superintendent Dan Losquadro (R) was keeping his fingers crossed for an early spring. “I’m happy,” he said. “We love winter here on Long Island. We love the kids to be able to play in the snow, but we don’t want winter to last any longer than it has to.” Hal made his 22nd annual Groundhog Day prediction at the Wildlife and Ecology Center Animal Preserve in Holtsville at 7:25 a.m., as per tradition, according to the master of ceremonies Wayne Carrington. Tradition says that if Hal — or, as he’s known in the town as a throwback to the classic Bill Murray movie “Groundhog Day,” the Great Prognosticator of Prognosticators — sees his shadow when he wakes from hibernation, the community is in for six more weeks of winter. “So he exited the ground, not a creature was stirring and not a shadow was found,”
read Losquadro from a large scroll to the cheers of onlookers. “I cannot tell a lie, my prediction so accurate does not come from the sky. I saw what I saw in a blink of an eye.” Those who attended were treated to free hot cocoa to warm up and celebrate the good news. Both Losquadro and Carrington asked residents to make donations to the ecology center to help support care for its animals and programs. “I don’t know what to wear anymore,” said Carrington. “Mr. Weatherman, and weathermen across the universe, please listen to the groundhog today. Listen to the groundhog, please make it so I know what to wear.” For more information about Holtsville Hal, visit his website www.holtsvillehal.org.

On the day of the big game, Tommy O’Grady was the real patriot. The owner of Miller Place’s Tuscany Gourmet Market donated food for 107 local veterans to make sure the servicemen and women could enjoy Super Bowl LII. Original plans were to prepare a feast for 40 veterans at the VA Northport Beacon House Homeless Shelter through Veterans For A More Responsive Government, a nonprofit working to increase the public’s awareness of harassment and mistreatment of disabled U.S. veterans. Pipes burst at the Beacon House Jan. 12, according to Todd Goodman, spokesman for Northport VAMC, and the veterans were split up and moved to nine different homes after making plans to watch the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots duke it out. When O’Grady was approached with the change of plans, he didn’t hesitate to alter his. “I have a gifted life, I’m doing well right now. To see people [in need] who put their lives on the line and did their time, it’s not right,” O’Grady said. “For me, to give this to them, it’s the only way to say ‘Thank you.’” O’Grady had been connected with Robert Cornicelli, founder of the veterans nonprofit group, through his childhood friend and Suffolk County Republican Committee Chairman John Jay LaValle. The two grew up in Centereach together, and when LaValle was approached by Cornicelli asking first for help stretching his $540 into food for 40, he knew who to call. “Tommy is the type of guy I’m almost afraid to talk in front of because God forbid you mention somebody is in need, he jumps

STATE LaValle introduces bill creating more stipulations for LIPA rate increases New York state Sen. Ken LaValle (R-Port Jefferson) wants to make it more difficult for LIPA to increase rates for its customers. LaValle and Assemblyman Fred Thiele (I-Sag Harbor) introduced the Long Island Power Authority Rate Reform Act in January, a bill drafted to require the notfor-profit public utility’s board of trustees to “protect the economic interests of its ratepayers and the service area,” in addition to the interests of the utility company when considering a rate increase proposal, according to a joint press release from the lawmakers. The bill would also prevent LIPA from increasing rates to offset revenue losses associated with energy conservation efforts, like the installation of energyefficient appliances and light bulbs. If passed, it would require the board to hold public hearings within each county overseen by LIPA prior to finalizing rate plans. Currently, LIPA’s board is required to consider three criteria when a rate increase is proposed by the State Department of Public Service: sound fiscal operating practices, existing contractual obligations, and safe and adequate service, according to the press release. “While we have been working to keep Long Island affordable by implementing measures like the 2 percent property tax cap, LIPA approved the largest rate increase in its history,” LaValle said in a statement, citing a three-year rate increase approved by the board in 2015. “This measure will

Ken LaValle is sponsoring a bill with Assemblyman Fred Thiele that would change the way LIPA increases rates. enable more community input by mandating a public hearing when considering rate changes. In addition, this legislation would provide the trustees with the tools necessary to reject rate increases that would cause additional financial burdens on Long Islanders.” Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine (R) and Port Jefferson Village Mayor Margot Garant each voiced support for LaValle’s bill. “The record amount of investment in reliability, customer service and clean energy all come at a time when electric rates have remained roughly flat for a decade,” LIPA trustee Tom McAteer said in a statement
through spokesman Sid Nathan. “Customer satisfaction is significantly higher and customers see PSEG Long Island crews tree trimming and storm hardening the electric grid throughout the year. Those are the facts. Not opinion. The Reform Act is working for our customers.” The LIPA Reform Act was enacted in 2013 to revamp the utility’s operations, including empowering the board to decide on proposed rate increases. PSEG Long Island operates LIPA’s distribution systems. Elizabeth Flagler, media relations specialist, said in a statement the company is reviewing the legislation and will be monitoring its status.

SUPER BOWL DONATION
The proposed legislation comes as municipalities continue settlement discussions pertaining to lawsuits filed by Port Jeff Village and Port Jefferson School District — both in LaValle’s home district — in addition to the Town of Huntington and Northport-East Northport school district against LIPA to prevent the utility’s challenges to property value assessments at the Port Jeff and Northport plants. The result of the lawsuits could have a dramatic impact on Port Jeff Village and its school district, as both entities receive substantial property tax revenue as a host community of a LIPA power plant. The Port Jeff plant is currently used about 11 percent of the time, during periods of peak energy generation demand, an argument LIPA has used against the village’s public pleas to repower its plant and give LIPA more bang for its tax-assessment buck. A 2017 LIPA study predicted that by 2030 the Port Jeff plant might only be needed about 6 percent of the year, thanks in part to the emergence of energy efficient household appliances. In August 2016 New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) mandated that 50 percent of the state’s electricity come from renewable energy, such as wind and solar power, by 2030. Bruce Blower, a spokesman for LaValle, did not respond to an email asking if the proposed legislation was drafted with the lawsuits in mind, or if a settlement was imminent. Both the Senate and Assembly versions of the bill are in committee and would require passage by both houses and a signature from Cuomo prior to becoming law.

It’s a great feeling helping out brothers and sisters in need.” LaValle said seeing the groups of “good guys” come together has been mental therapy for him. “It’s a tough world right now,” he said. “It’s a very hostile world at times. This is something that’s been really rewarding because you learn you may think you have it bad, and you may be whining about something, but it’s very true that there’s always someone out there who has it worse. Now I want to do more to help out.” He pointed to Cornicelli and O’Grady as prime examples of model citizens.
“If everyone did what Tommy did, there’d be a lot fewer problems in this world, that’s for sure — certainly there wouldn’t be any world hunger,” he said, laughing. “And what Robert is doing is absolutely wonderful, he deserves a lot of credit.” But on the day of the Super Bowl, Cornicelli called O’Grady the real hero, who donated much more than just heroes. “I never met the guy in my life, and he tells me he’s taking care of the whole thing — it’s unbelievable,” Cornicelli said. “He broke everything down to the exact amount needed to feed the veterans at each location, and it’s an amazing feeling when these guys’ eyes are wide open, saying, ‘This is what we’re getting?’ rather than bagged lunches. It’s refreshing to see guys helping out. Tommy, he’s one of the greatest patriots I’ve ever met.”

Bowling team finally bests East Islip BY JIM FERCHLAND
The intensity was up and the noise level high as Middle Country and East Islip found themselves in familiar territory — duking it out for the county title for seven hours Feb. 3. Middle Country won by 42 pins after erasing a 43-pin deficit heading into game six to finally overcome East Islip after coming in second to the Redmen the last two years. With emotional hugs and tears, Middle Country won its final game 1,147 to 1,062 after being up in games one through three, to earn a trip to the state championships in Syracuse. Amanda Scarfogliero finished with a 1,317 series, and saved her best for last, a 256 in Game 6, the team’s second highest score. No one on Middle Country bowled lower than a 202 in the final game. Scarfogliero was in tears as the final scores were being calculated. “My heart dropped, honestly,” said Scarfogliero. “I made a promise to this team and my parents that I’d get Middle Country up to Syracuse. That’s exactly what we did. I needed to get that last game-high, and I did it.” Middle Country rallied back to win 6,454 to 6,412 in a thriller at Bowlero in Sayville, winning four of the six games. Middle Country’s 69-year-old head coach Mandy Dominguez announced he will be retiring after coaching for 28 years and in Middle Country for 18. “I’m so proud of these girls,” Dominguez
MC boys bowling team places 4th said. “The girls did not give up. They all had 200s in the final game. They’re resilient, and a tough group of girls.” East Islip came out on fire in Game 4 and Game 5, out-bowling Middle Country 1,131 to 1,020 in the latter to turn a 248-pin deficit after Game 3 into the 43-pin lead. Senior Julie Acosta was the last bowler in starting rotation for Middle Country. She finished the last game with a 225 and had the team’s high game with a 279. Middle Country had mathematically already won before she bowled her final frame. “I was so nervous,” Acosta said finishing up her game. “Knowing that we won, I just wanted it to be over with and be able to
celebrate with my team.” The last time Acosta went to states, she was in seventh grade, which was her first season with Middle Country. In Dominguez’s final season coaching, he said going to the states is icing on the cake. The team will compete at The Oncenter in Syracuse, March 10 at 9 a.m. “I’m so happy, especially very happy for the girls,” Dominguez said. “East Islip has beat us every year for the past three or four years. This year, the seniors came through and they worked hard. They’re a great bunch of girls and a great bunch of talented bowlers.”
In other county bowling news: Middle Country’s boys bowling placed fourth with 6,294 points. East Islip claimed first by a landslide with 6,829 points to earn backto-back county titles. In second was West Babylon with 6,353 and Sachem in third with 6,346. Middle Country junior Noah Axinn bowled a 300 in his second game. He’s never bowled a sanctioned 300 before. Senior Thomas Lettich finished sixth in the county in with a 223 average for Middle Country. He has the fourth highest series in the county at 783. He will go to Syracuse to bowl as an All-Star.
