EDUCATION CINDY BUZAID
To Our Valued Guests… We would like to express our most sincere gratitude and appreciation for allowing Lombardi’s on the Sound to provide you the exemplary food, service and catering experience during our 15 years at the Port Jefferson Country Club. The Lombardi Family will continue to provide you with this level of service for your Weddings, Special Occasions and Corporate Events at our other catering venues—our waterfront venue, Chris Buzaid, a Dawnwood Middle School student, was named a finalist in the running for a Brooklyn Nets grant for his school.
Dawnwood 7th-grader wins big on and off court BY KEVIN REDDING KEVIN@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Seventh-grader Chris Buzaid may be the smallest kid on the basketball court at 4-10, but when it comes to drive, hustle and spirit, there’s nobody bigger. During a midseason game against Brentwood North this past December, the 12-yearold guard for Centereach’s Dawnwood Middle School dove onto a loose ball with some physically imposing players from the other team. He ended up with the ball, and a bloody lip. But when his coach, Tim Dowler, tried to take him off the court, worried about the injury, Chris begged to be allowed to keep playing. “I ended up having to take Chris out for a bit, and then, when he eventually went back in, he just took the game over,” Dowler said. Within a couple minutes Buzaid had three steals in a row and hit three jumpshots to lead Dawnwood to victory. The team of seventh- and eighth-graders would end the season in January undefeated for the first time in school history since 1974 — a feat Dowler said Chris contributed largely to. “He just went right back out there and faced the same bigger kids, showing no fear,” the coach said. “It would be very easy for someone like him to want to play a little softer and feel a little afraid, but that isn’t him.” Chris isn’t just a star athlete — he started playing travel basketball in fourth grade, has been on three of the best Amateur Athletic Union boys teams in the New York metropolitan area and is an accomplished
cross-country runner. He is also among Dawnwood Middle School’s brightest students; he’s currently in the National Honor Society and has a 99.5 GPA, with a particular interest in science and history, and a tendency to help fellow students who may be struggling in certain subjects. “He’s an amazing student and such a good Dawnwood citizen — Chris always does what’s right,” Dawnwood Middle School Principal Kristi Leonard said of the district’s former student of the month. “He’s definitely a natural leader and just has a great inner confidence. Chris has so many commitments in and out of school, balances clubs and sport activities while maintaining near-perfect grades.” So it makes sense that Chris has been chosen as one of six finalists in a special competition presented by the Brooklyn Nets AllStar Awards recognizing junior high school basketball players within the tristate area that “demonstrate grit, determination and a desire to succeed both on the court and in the classroom.” His mother and coach nominated him in the fall and he was announced as a finalist in January, with Dowler saying he “was the perfect person to represent Dawnwood.” Chris and the other five finalists, some from Brooklyn and Nassau County and others from Connecticut, will be attending the Brooklyn Nets Summer Basketball Clinic and a Brooklyn Nets v. Chicago Bulls NBA game in April. The finalist with the most votes will be announced during that contest, and win a $3,000 grant for their school’s athletic program.

Chris Buzaid, above with his Dawnwood Middle School boys basketball team and cheerleaders, and on left with his sister Jackie, is known throughout the district for his athleticism, compassion and smarts.
CHRIS BUZAID Continued from page A3 “Chris is such a hardworking, competitive person and always tries to be the best that he can,” said mother Cindy Buzaid. “And now, I think he’s just in the competitive mode of wanting to win this for his school. He really wants to be able to say, ‘I was able to win this for Dawnwood.’ He loves his basketball coach, he loves Dawnwood and he’s really excited.” Cindy Buzaid said she felt her son exhibited all the required traits of a stellar scholar-athlete when she put his name in the ring — grit, dedication, character, academics and teamwork. In her nomination letter to the organization, she wrote of her son’s
maturity and strength through tough situations. Between the ages of 3 and 6, Chris witnessed his father, Jim Buzaid, be diagnosed with Stage 4 non-Hodgkin lymphoma. While his father is now in remission, Chris carried a lot of those early memories with him as he grew up. “Chris knew what cancer was before any kid should,” his mother said. “It made him a tough kid — made him grow up a little faster than others. Chris is such a fun-loving kid, but I believe the whole thing made him a more serious person and learn not to take things for granted. He was always very protective of me at that time and worried a lot about me getting sick, too.” She said it makes sense that her son fell into basketball, as his older sister, Jackie Buzaid
has spent most of her life playing the sport. A Centereach High School graduate, Jackie Buzaid played basketball throughout her adolescence and currently plays as a senior at Mount St. Mary’s University in Maryland. She remembers her brother always tagging along with her for pickup games at the park and watching her play from the sidelines at school. It also didn’t take long for him to develop his own competitive spirit, she said. “Christopher doesn’t settle for mediocrity,” Jackie Buzaid said. “I remember when we would go shoot at our local park, he would always have to make three 3-pointers before he could leave. My brother’s determination to constantly improve and excel are what make him stand out from others. But he’s
also kind and generous, and has a way of making people smile.” It’s still up in the air as to what exactly the grant money will go toward within the athletic department, but whatever it is, Chris said he just hopes it will help the school. “I’m really happy that I might have a chance to win money for Dawnwood, because I really want my coaches and friends and all the other kids in my school to be able to have something new,” he said. “Being a good student and athlete is important to me because I get to be healthy, active, one of the top kids in my class and I really like to help others who need help.” To vote for Chris visit the Brooklyn Nets website www.nba.com/nets/community/ 2017-18/allstarawards.

School safety, gun legislation on separate political tracks The New York State Legislature is working to make schools safer in the aftermath of the Feb. 14 shooting at a Florida high school. But the Republican-held Senate and Democratic-majority Assembly are not yet on the same page in figuring out how to accomplish the goal. The Senate passed a package of bills March 6 Page A18 aimed at improving school safety through various security-related measures. After a package of gun legislation bills — which included measures to create a stronger background check process, ban bump stocks or accessories that increase a semi-automatic weapon’s rate of fire, establish extreme risk protection orders, and more — brought forward by Senate Democrats failed in late February, the Assembly also passed a package of bills March 6 designed to strengthen gun laws. Several of the bills in the Assembly package were the same as versions voted down in the Senate. It remains to be seen if either house will pass their counterparts respective packages. “I have every hope that we can walk and chew gum at the same time because these are not mutually exclusive directions, and they are very complementary,” Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket) said in an interview. The assemblyman said he hadn’t had a chance to fully study the package of bills passed in the Senate yet, but at first glance it included some initiatives he’d be comfortable supporting. “I would just appeal to my colleagues in the Senate to meet us halfway, and I would pledge to do the same for them. I think we all should keep our eye on what the objective is here, which is to save lives and ultimately there is no single measure that is going to be an omnibus solve.” The passed Senate package includes a bill authorizing districts to receive state funding to hire a school resource officer, defined in the bill to include retired or active duty police officers, deputy sheriffs or state troopers. They would be permitted to carry firearms on school grounds if licensed to do so. Another bill increased the earnings limitations for retired police officers being employed by schools from $30,000 annually to $50,000. A bill was also included in the package that will provide state education aid to districts for acquiring safety technology and improving security. “Schools must be safe havens, where students can learn and teachers can teach,” Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan (REast Northport) said in a statement. “In

Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan and his coalition passed a series of school safety bills last week, as the Democrats eye gun control legislation. New York, we must act swiftly and decisively to implement additional measures in schools throughout our state to give students, parents and teachers the resources and peace of mind that they deserve.” The Senate’s package also had components designed to improve school-based mental health services. One bill allocates districts $50,000 in state funding to put toward hiring a mental health services coordinator, while another requires the state Department of Education to investigate and report on the number of full- and part-time school counselors, school social workers and school psychologists in each school; the ratio of students to the number of school counselors; the ratio of students to the number of school social workers; the ratio of students to the number of school psychologists in each school; and when such staff is working in more than one school. As part of the package, another bill was passed defining school shootings as an act of terrorism, which now makes the New York State Intelligence Center in cooperation with the state Division of Homeland Security responsible for the collection, integration, receipt, processing, evaluation, analysis, fusing, dissemination, sharing and maintenance of intelligence information to aid in detecting, preventing, investigating and

responding to acts of terrorism, including school shootings. Now suspects who discharge a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school can be charged with committing an act of terrorism. The bills in the Senate’s package passed with overwhelming bipartisan support in most cases. They will head to the Assembly before arriving, if passed, at Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D) desk for signing into law. The package that passed the Assembly, if eventually passed by the Senate and signed by Cuomo, would temporarily prohibit individuals from purchasing or possessing guns if a family member or law enforcement officer petitions a court and the court finds individuals are likely to engage in conduct that would harm themselves or others. It also would establish a 10-day waiting period before a gun may be delivered to a purchaser who has not cleared a background check. Under current federal law, gun dealers must conduct a background check through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System before selling a firearm. The NICS system responds with one of three messages: “proceed,” “denied” or “delayed.” The dealer must deny the sale if the NICS background check determines the buyer is a prohibited purchaser and responds with a “denied” message. However, if the response is “delayed,” the dealer may nonetheless complete the sale after three business days. Also included in the package is a bill preventing convicted domestic abusers from purchasing or possessing a firearm. Spokespersons for Flanagan and Sen. Ken LaValle (R-Port Jefferson) did not respond to a request for comment asking if they intend to support the package of legislation passed by the Assembly.
Bellone announces safety initiative BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Schools in Suffolk County will now be offered a permanent eye in the sky. Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D) announced the SHARE initiative March 9, a program that will allow districts the ability to connect existing camera systems directly to the Suffolk County Police Department. The system would enhance the efficiency of a police department response to an active shooter situation, according to a press release from Bellone’s office. “We will do whatever it takes to protect our schools by utilizing every available tool and partnership at our disposal,” the county executive said in a statement. “The SHARE initiative will provide law enforcement the enhanced capabilities needed to respond to a security risk, and I look forward to working with our superintendents and stakeholders on how we can keep our schools safe.” The county will hold a meeting of all school district superintendents March 15 to formally seek voluntary consent with the districts interested in the program. “We have been preparing and training for the nightmare scenario that we hope never happens,” District Attorney Tim Sini (D) said in a statement. “In the police department, we enhanced our readiness for an active shooter scenario or a terrorist attack, but most importantly to take measures to prevent those incidents.”

POLICE Rocky Point man arrested for alleged involvement in Coram robbery BY DESIRÉE KEEGAN DESIRÉE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Suffolk County police arrested a man March 9 for allegedly robbing a Coram 7Eleven in February. The person entered 7Eleven, located at 1671 Route 112, on Feb. 26 at approximately 1:20 a.m. and approached the counter as if he was going to purchase merchandise. When the clerk began to ring up the items, the suspect punched him in the face, knocking him down to the ground. The clerk hit his head on shelving and then the floor, and was knocked unconscious. The suspect then hopped over the counter and stole cash from the drawer and other items before he fled on foot southbound on Route 112. An investigation by 6th Squad detectives led to the arrest of Paul Mauro, 31, of Rocky Point, at approximately 1:50 p.m. at the 6th Precinct. Mauro was charged with second-degree robbery and with an active parole warrant. Mauro was held overnight at the 6th Precinct.
A Coram man allegedly stole purses from women walking in shopping center parking lots on three separate occasions in February, according to Suffolk County police. An investigation by 6th Squad detectives led to the arrest of Andrew Sunyar, 36. He was charged with three counts of fourth-degree grand larceny for his alleged actions:
• A purse was stolen from a female walking in the Stop & Shop parking lot, located at 385 Route 25A, Miller Place, Feb. 25 at 5:51 p.m. • A purse was stolen from a female walking in the Kohl’s parking lot, located at 5000 Route 347, Setauket, Feb. 24 at 11:36 a.m. • A purse was stolen from a female walking in the Walmart parking lot, located at 750 Route 25, Middle Island, Feb. 23 at 1:19 p.m. Sunya was also charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
SCPD: Alleged drunk driver pulled from burning vehicle after crash BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Suffolk County police arrested a man for allegedly driving while intoxicated following a crash during which officers had to rescue him from a burning vehicle in Mount Sinai March 9. Jose Nunez was driving a 1999 Honda CRV westbound on Route 25A at Hallock Avenue when he allegedly lost control of the vehicle, crossed over the median, went over a front lawn and into the 7-Eleven parking lot, located at 1 Route 25A, where the vehicle side-swiped a light pole and crashed into a parked tractor trailer at approximately 2 a.m., according to police. The Honda was stuck in full throttle, and the engine caught fire near the fuel cells of the tractor trailer. Sixth Precinct officers, Port Jefferson EMS members, Mount Sinai Fire Department and Terryville Fire Department responded and found the driver trapped and unconscious. Sgt. Richard Grice used a fire extinguisher
to put out the fire near the engine, while officers Jamie Treadwell and Brian Cann used another fire extinguisher to put out the fire near the rear of the vehicle, police said. Officer Chris Weiner, with assistance from fire department members, kept the driver’s airway open until rescuers, including officer Anthony Buonagurio, officer Fred Crasa and officer Thomas Wassmer, were able to use the Jaws of Life tool to cut the vehicle and pull Nunez to safety. Nunez, who regained consciousness during the rescue, was transported with serious injuries to Stony Brook University Hospital. There was one person in the tractor trailer who was not injured. Nunez, 25, of Port Jefferson Station, was arrested and charged with allegedly driving while intoxicated. Sixth Squad detectives are continuing the investigation. Anyone with information about the crash can call the 6th Squad at 631-854-8652. Attorney information for Nunez was not immediately available.

The Silver Alert is a program implemented in Suffolk County that allows local law enforcement to share information with media outlets about individuals, especially senior citizens, with special needs who have been reported missing.

SPORTS NICOLE LETTICH
MIDDLE COUNTRY SCHOOL DISTRICT
Twins Nicole and Thomas Lettich The Middle Country girls bowling team, above hoisting up the championship banner and below right with head coach Mandy Dominguez, were named state champions for the first time since 2013. Amanda Scarfogliero, below left, was one of MIddle Country’s three bowlers to reach the Top 10 in scoring.
MC bowlers prove best in state With a difficult oil pattern on the lane, the Middle Country girls bowling team knew what it was going to take to win a state title — and it had the talent to spare. “We knew it would be tough bowling on a more challenging pattern, but we knew spares were going to be so important,” senior Nicole Lettich said. “As most of us say, strikes win games, but spares win tournaments. We are a strong team and knew we could take on whatever was thrown at us. We just needed to focus each game and make good shots. That’s exactly what we did.” Lettich, noted by head coach Mandy Dominguez as the most consistent bowler on the team, averaged a 191.67 over six games. “She did great, she’s steady,” Dominguez said of his one of four seniors. With her team up by just 118 pins heading into a crucial Game 6, she bowled a 223 to help seal the deal and a state title March 11 in Syracuse. “My parents tell me all the time that I bowl with a poker face and don’t let bad scores phase me,” Lettich said. “I don’t really put any added pressure on myself, I just focus on making my spares and throwing good shots. When I throw a bad shot, I shake it off and get ready for the next frame.” Lettich, who finished Sunday ranked fourth in New York, was one of three Middle Coun-

try bowlers to rank in the Top 10 in scoring. Junior Amanda Scarfogliero (No. 7) and freshman Hannah Skalacki (No. 2) were the others. “I’ve never had a team improve in the offseason the way that this team did,” Dominguez said. “Last year we only had one 200 bowler, and this year I had five. The girls really stepped it up, and have so much grit and determination. We had a 280-pin lead at one point in the tournament and to lose that lead is hard for any team in any sport, losing a lead late in the game. They gutted it out and brought it back. It says so much about their resiliency and willingness to never give up.” Middle Country won a state title in 2013 and since lost three battles to East Islip and one to Sachem for a ticket upstate. This year the girls took the league title before overcoming that county hurdle with a 43-pin win, and weren’t going to let an oil pattern stop them from going all the way. Scarfogliero said the team practiced for the 41-foot Tower of Pisa Kegel pattern, asymmetric in design with a shift to the inside, in the weeks leading up to the tournament. After averaging 215 at the county tournament, Middle Country finished with a 180 average upstate, according to Dominguez, proving even with practice how difficult the sport pattern can be. “It was a whole new atmosphere,” said Scarfogliero, who leads off for her team. “It
took us by surprise, but we worked together as a team so the oil pattern wasn’t as hard. We helped each other and with the oil pattern being so hard I didn’t even think I was going to make it up there [in scoring], but that wasn’t even a priority for me. I wanted to put my team in the best position to win states.” For Skalacki, her freshman status shouldn’t be misunderstood. The three-year varsity team member bowled a 193.83 average, just about three pins under first. As the team’s anchor, she said there’s a lot of pressure when her team needs extra points at the end of each game, but she thrives under it. “If we need a certain amount of pins to win, I have to get them, but I love the attention and the competition,” said Skalacki, who was strongest in the first three games, bowling a tournament-high 226 for Game 1. “It’s heart-dropping, and I love having my team depend on me — knowing I play a big part in helping the team come out with a win.” She said after finally topping East Islip, she knew Middle Country had a lot to prove, and the team wasn’t going to settle for anything less than a perfect finish. “We had the biggest motivation to win,” she said. “Now people know Middle Country and know how good we are. We wanted to prove people wrong — to show we have what it takes — and we did it.”
Bowling right up twins’ alley Bowling is how the Lettich twins roll. The duo each competed for a state title last weekend in Syracuse, and clean swept their senior season with gold medals in their respective tournaments. “It’s honestly breathtaking to make it this far and win it all,” Nicole Lettich said, noting that she was on the 2013 state championship winning team, but didn’t yet have the skills to be invited to compete. “Going to the state tournament with my brother who I’ve been so close with was probably the most amazing thing I could have done in my senior year.” The twins’ mother bowled in high school, and found they had their own itch to compete after competing in a league in second grade. “Bowling is such an underrated sport in high school, and to finally win it all proves to schools that bowling shouldn’t be brushed under the carpet, but actually acknowledged more because it is a very difficult sport,” she said. “A lot of people don’t see it that way.” Middle Country finished with a grand total 5,332 pins, nearly 200 ahead of second-place finisher Orchard Park (5,157). Her brother Thomas Lettich competed on the Section XI boys All-Star team. He’d averaged 224 during the regular season, and said even though he’d won his team’s MVP awards, and was named an All-Star, All-County and All-League bowler, he was most confident competing because of the last month’s worth of practicing six days a week. “I have grown so much over the years, improving my physical and mental game,” he said. “Since I am a lefty and had an advantage and disadvantage since I’m the only one on the left side. The lanes were brand new, so I knew it was going to be difficult, but being chosen to compete on this team with a group of boys that I was very close with and were fun to bowl with was a goal of mine.” He said it was a unique experience competing alongside his sister. “When I am bowling bad she supports me and helps me, and when she’s bowling bad I support her and help her,” Thomas Lettich said. “She unfortunately didn’t have the ability to watch me, but I was able to cheer her on in her match and it was exciting to have the chance to be together. We had great accomplishments and it’s a great way to go out.”

What Do You Want to Be?
ost people at several points in their lives are still working on answering the question asked of them since primary school: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Just like in school, the answer to this question continues to change. The most successful leaders across industries continue to advance and move on to new things. They do not achieve their goals and then sit back and relax. They move on to the next dream. Others realize that what once gave them excitement no longer does. Then they search for their next passion. Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do or where to even start.
FIND A MENTOR People at the top of their industry and those who follow their passions don’t get there on their own. They likely had an entire network of people who guided and supported them along the way. Many of them had mentors. The topic of professional coaches and mentors is discussed a lot in relation to climbing the ladder, but they also can be an invaluable resource for finding which ladder you want to climb.
KEEP A GOAL JOURNAL Keeping a journal of your objectives is a great way to brainstorm. What goals do you want to achieve this year? This month? What did you do today that will help you get closer to achieving your goals? Have you learned anything new? Reflecting back on the previous year can help you understand what you want out of the upcoming year.
STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES No one likes to think too hard about his or her flaws, but being honest with yourself can help you understand what you need to work on. This also is a great litmus test for understanding what you want to learn. Which ideas, actions or products excite you? How do you plan to go after jobs that can help you leverage these passions?
Professional coaches have the advantage of being an outside player. They bring a different and objective perspective on your strengths and weaknesses
and can help you create opportunities you might not have considered. 2018 Greenshoot Media
