Career law enforcement officer and Kings Park resident Larry Zacarese (R) defeated state Sen. Phil Boyle (R-East Islip) Sept. 12 to capture the Republican primary in the race to fill the sheriff’s seat in Suffolk County, which is up for grabs following a May announcement by incumbent Vincent DeMarco (R) that he wouldn’t seek another term. Though the results were listed as unofficial by the Suffolk County Board of Elections at the time of print, Zacarese garnered 12,323 votes to Boyle’s 9,586. “First and foremost, I want to thank my family, friends and all of the volunteers who worked tirelessly alongside me for the past 10 months,” Zacarese said on his campaign website. “I also want to thank all of the primary voters in Suffolk County who placed their trust in me and took time out of their busy lives to vote for me today. I am humbled by their support. Tomorrow we start fresh with laser focus on the general election.”

Boyle could not be reached for comment. The general election to select the next Suffolk County sheriff will take place Nov. 7 and will pit Zacarese against former Huntington Town Board member Stuart Besen (D). Boyle has not ruled out a run on the Democratic ticket.
Correction In the Sept. 7 issue of The Times of Middle Country, we mistakenly ran a brief encouraging voters to participate in a primary for Suffolk County district attorney that was not taking place. Democrat Dan Caroleo will no longer be the challenger in the county sheriff race. We regret the errors.

Clockwise from left, WWe wrestler and Smithtown resident Mick Foley signs autographs at Fourth World Comics in Smithtown for fans and young children, including Austin, Texas resident Chance Clanton, on left, and the Castoro family of Smithtown, below, to raise money for nonprofit KultureCity’s Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
Mick Foley visits comic book shop for a cause WWE wrestling star, Smithtown resident signs autographs to raise money for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts By Kevin Redding email@example.com Wanting to help in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, wrestling icon and Smithtown resident Mick Foley stopped by a local comic book shop Sept. 7 to sign autographs for a cause close to home. The big-bearded and even bigger-hearted 52-year-old best known to WWE fans as Cactus Jack, Mankind and Dude Love visited Fourth World Comics on Route 111 in Smithtown to sign autographs, pose for pictures and raise money for KultureCity, a Birmingham, Alabama-based nonprofit advocating for autism awareness and acceptance. Foley helped raise $3,240 for the organization that is helping dozens of special needs families that have been affected by the Category 4 storm in Houston, Texas. When he found out the group had members on the ground in Texas, and special needs families were struggling with tornapart homes and lost items, he knew he had to get involved. The organization is also near and dear to Foley, because his son is autistic.
“Anyone who knows about children on the autism spectrum know they tend to thrive on regularity, and so to take everything they have and to suddenly turn that upside down is just devastating — even above and beyond what other families are going through,” Foley said. “This just seemed like a good way to make a difference. The money we raise may not change the world, but it will change the lives of these families.” As a frequent shopper and celebrity guest at Fourth World in recent years, Foley took his idea for the meet-and-greet fundraiser directly to Glenn Fischette, the comic book store’s owner. “It was really last minute, [but] as we can’t really go down there and help, we figured this is a good way to do it,” Fischette said, adding that he and Foley spent a day and a half blasting the event across social media after Foley proposed the idea Sept. 5. By 5 p.m. on the day of the event, an hour before Foley was set to arrive, a long line of Superfans had already assembled outside. “People just love him,” the owner said. “I know a lot of people who’ve been here before to see him, and they want to see him again. He’s really into the charity stuff, so it’s great.” Set up behind a table inside the store, Foley put a smile on the face of hundreds of adults, teens and kids eager to meet their hero as he signed shirts and his own Pop! Vinyl doll for $20 to $30. The Castoro family, from Smithtown — parents Jason and Nicole, and their 9-year-old kids Marilena and Brandon — were at the front of the line, each of them donning a wrestling shirt. As excited as they were for Foley, they came to support the cause, too. “I think it’s wonderful he’s using his celebrity status for a good cause,” said Jason Castoro,
a lifelong fan. “Sometimes when we go to meet famous wrestlers, you have to wait on a long line, and that’s just to meet them and take a picture. This really adds something special to it. We realized we had to come to this.” Nicole Castoro pointed to her daughter, Marilena, who she said came up with a similar idea on her own. “The other day, she said, ‘Why can’t all the wrestlers just give the people in Texas the money they make?’ and here he is, giving them all the proceeds,” she said. “That’s really cool.” Another lifelong WWE and Foley fan was Chance Clanton, an Austin, Texas resident staying in New York for the week. He said he has friends in Houston and is grateful for the overwhelming support from everybody,
including his childhood idol. “It’s really cool that he’s taking time out of his really busy schedule to show support for something like this,” Clanton said. “But it also really was no surprise to me when I heard he was doing it, he’s so charitable.” Throughout the event, Foley shared stories from his career, goofed off and laughed with fans, all the while thanking each and every one of them for being there. “I’m really flattered by the length of that line — I didn’t think there would be this many people,” Foley said. “This shows the strength and the heart of the Smithtown community and the surrounding areas. We’re called Strong Island for a reason. We pull together. And that’s really nice to know.”

Legislature votes to approve heroin, opiate panel By Desirée Keegan Desirée@tbrnewspapers.com Another push for a Suffolk County drug advisory panel has been made, and approved. At the general Legislature meeting Sept. 6, the members passed Introductory Resolution 1664 to create a panel that will provide ongoing guidance and input to the county in combating the opioid issue. The panel will take an interdisciplinary approach by focusing on preventative education, enhancement of law enforcement efforts, and aiding in treatment and rehabilitation. “A coordinated, continuous and interdisciplinary approach is needed to fully address the epidemic and implement susPage a22 tainable change,” Legislator Sarah Anker (D-Mount SInai) said. The ever-evolving nature of the opiate problems within the county will be addressed by a panel that will include members of the county Legislature — Anker, Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory (D-Amityville), Chair of the Public Safety Committee Kate Browning (D-Shirley), Chair of the Education and Human Services Committee Monica Martinez (D-Brentwood) and Chair of the Health Committee William “Doc” Spencer (DCenterport). The panel will also include representatives from the police department, sheriff’s department and department of health, as well as local rehabilitation providers, advocacy groups, hospitals and the county superintendents’ association. “The opioid epidemic has Suffolk communities in its grip, and it is time to create a long-term, countywide response to the crisis,” Gregory said. “This panel brings together more than a dozen of the most qualified and connected individuals and organizations in a position to make a difference.” Police Commissioner Tim Sini (D), who is on the panel, said it is a positive piece of legislation. “We are seeing this overdose epidemic develop from pills to heroin to the leading cause in Suffolk County, now Fentanyl,” Sini said. “Suffolk has not been spared. There have been recommendations made for previous panels at the state and county level — some have been adopted, and this allows us a forum to make additional recommendations and visit previous ones to be implemented and fine-tuned.” He has some of his own ideas he will bring to the table. “We need to invest in prevention and ways to keep people sober,” he said. “We opened the first recovery center — THRIVE — but we need more, and maybe even recovery high schools, to provide an environment that fosters support, especially when there’s the errors insurance companies [make] treating addiction.” He said he likes that there is a wide array of those in support of, and providing input on the panel. “You need all the stakeholders at the table,” he said. “This isn’t just a public safety issue, it’s first and foremost a public health issue.” An intervention program has already been put in place by the police department recently, to help put people in touch with the Long Island Council on Alcoholism & Drug Dependence. “When a police officer or detective comes into contact with intelligence for someone who needs substance abuse treatment, we will directly contact LICADD to get that person treatment,” he said. “We’re not just arresting drug dealers, but also connecting people to much-needed treatment.” It is anticipated that the advisory panel will meet for the first time at the beginning of October. Following the first meeting, the group will meet quarterly and will provide regular reports to the appropriate county committees, and all meetings will be open to the public. To aid in the efforts, the panel will conduct a minimum of two formal public hearings annually to acquire necessary information and data to assist it in developing further recommendations.

PersPectives Running in the Tunnel to Towers race was unforgettable By Rich AcRitelli
Photo from Rich Acritelli
Rich Acritelli, Mike conlon, Brooke Bonomi and Andy levine in New york city after participating in the 2016 tunnel to towers run.
Sixteen years ago, on a beautiful day, as Americans were putting their children on buses and going about their daily responsibilities, the United States was attacked. Through the use of civilian aircraft, the terrorists that commandeered the planes flew them directly into the World Trade Center in New York City and at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. On United Airlines Flight 93, passengers fought back over the skies of Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and undoubtedly saved lives. While the nation was stunned by the assaults against democracy, at once the U.S. was unified to help citizens struggling, both physically and emotionally, to survive in the aftermath. Since the 2001 attacks on the American way of life, traditions and tributes can be seen in countless walks of life to embody the familiar tenet: never forget. The New York Yankees have always utilized the seventh-inning stretch to play “America the Beautiful,” to honor veterans and rescue workers. In the fall, professional football teams expand a gigantic flag with military veterans and Wounded Warriors, and citizens across the U.S. observe ceremonies at memorials erected with steel from Ground Zero. One of the most powerful displays of remembrance is the Tunnel to Towers 5K Run and Walk from Red Hook, Brooklyn toward the Freedom Tower in Lower Manhattan. Last year, Rocky Point High School guidance counselor Michael Conlon, who is also a former police officer, suggested to me and to several other teachers that we should run in the race. “There are no words to describe the intense feeling of patriotism and honor as you exit the tunnel toward the banners of those who perished,” Conlon told us before the event. “You literally feel a charge of energy run through your body. It’s an experience everyone should endure.” The vibe during the run is unique, unlike any other competitive race. From the very start as runners enter the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel, they see themselves in massive screens placed near the entrance and cheers for the runners from the bystanders can be heard. For me, it was a chance to run with veteran Rocky Point English teacher Andrew Levine. As we ran, we noticed the thousands of people with different athletic abilities running to show their national pride. In the tunnel, music was playing and the words from “Proud to be an American” could be heard for miles. Next to us were fully dressed rescue workers in their FDNY gear who were running in memory of their lost comrade, Stephen Siller, who ran through the tunnel with 60 pounds of gear 16 years ago. The firefighter was supposed to play golf on that day, but when he learned about the attacks on the city, he parked his car near the entrance of the tunnel and, while it was closed to traffic, he ran toward the World Trade Center Complex. During our run, uphill and out of the tunnel, we were treated to an impressive sight. West Point cadets and FDNY family members held flags and pictures, and handed out water. Behind them we could see the Freedom Tower, a new beacon of strength within the skyline of a proud city. As that was the finish line of the race, thousands of people were lined up on the street and along the waterfront of the Lower West Side to show their support for us, as we finished not too far from the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. Longtime social studies teacher Brooke Bonomi from Rocky Point was completely taken aback by the immense amount of pride demonstrated during the run. During his more than 30 years as a teacher, Bonomi always stressed the importance of national and local service inside and outside of his classroom. He ran next to Conlon wearing his Corona Tigers FDNY shirt to recognize the efforts of his own family members who served within the Queens fire house. Bonomi, who has organized Wounded Warrior basketball games and collected thousands of pounds of food and other items for soldiers over seas, has a father, brother and brother-in-law who all served in the FDNY. For the
local educator, 9/11 is a day of reflection on the sacrifices his own family has made to help others in New York City. While tragic loss was suffered by the whole nation 16 years ago, the character of our people is the true lasting legacy, and events like Tunnel to Towers are proof. Rich Acritelli is a social studies teacher at Rocky Point High School and an adjunct professor of American history at Suffolk County Community College.

Centereach can’t come up with goals in OT By Desirée Keegan Desiree@tbrnewspapers.com A scoring drought dating back to the last game of last season — 400 minutes of game time — hung over Smithtown East’s girls soccer team, so when sophomore striker Stella Mazzitelli got the ball on a breakaway with the score tied 0-0 in overtime, she admitted she was worried.
Smithtown E 2 Centereach 0
“I was nervous,” she said. “But we were hyped up. We really wanted this win and it felt really good to finally score our first goal of the season.” Following Mazzitelli’s goal with 8:09 left in the first 10-minute overtime session, sophomore forward Ava Bongiorno headed in a corner kick at the 1:58 mark for a 2-0 Bulls win over Centereach at home Sept. 11. “We haven’t really connected as a team, but today I feel like we all worked together — it felt like we were whole,” senior center defender and striker Danielle Bartsch said. “And I feel it’s only uphill from here.” The beginning of the game produced a familiar result for Smithtown East. Centereach dominated the time of possession in the opening half, but was unable to put away its chances. In the second half, Centereach freshman Nicole Fabris continued to fire away, but her shots went wide. Her last shot, with 25 seconds left in regulation, rebounded off the crossbar and out of play. “Centereach is always a good team,” Smithtown East head coach Bill Hamilton said. “They play hard. I call them a hardluck team, because they’re better than their record usually shows. This was an important game for us to get back on track, so I’m excited.” The game served as a boost for the Bulls’ confidence, which had wavered due to losses to top League III teams Newfield (1-0) and crosstown rival Smithtown West (3-0). “I needed this to be our breakout day so they know they can play,” Hamilton said. “Losing to them wasn’t catastrophic, but we need to do a better job the next time we play them. The girls were questioning them-
selves, wondering why they can’t score, but they can, they just need to keep trying.” The Bulls came out pressuring in the second half. With the game still scoreless, they knew there was still a chance. “We passed a lot, which we were struggling to do well in the first half, and we communicated,” Mazzitelli said. “We put a lot of hard work into it and deserved to win.” Between the 27- and 16-minute marks, Smithtown East made six breaks through the box in an effort to score. Hamilton attributed the chances to a change in formation following the Bulls loss to Smithtown West Sept. 8. “We were running a totally different field position,” he said. “They’re learning it, and I feel it gives us more offensive opportunities. We started to connect the passes we were just missing.” His two sophomores were just what the team needed to ignite the spark, and Hamilton said he believes more goals are on the way Sept. 13 at Copiague. While Bongiorno was on the team as a freshman, Mazzitelli was a transfer student last year, and found herself on the junior varsity team. “Before today we were playing with one person up top and five people at midfield, and we just never got the numbers forward that we needed to make a better offensive push, but when we practice they can kick a house down,” Hamilton said. “They’re up there for a reason, and we did a nice job on the pass that went to Stella to spring her for her first goal. She did a nice job of not kicking it to the goalie — finding a corner to put it in. She’s tough. It’s a case of them having to do it enough times to realize they can do this.”
Bartsch said the energy remained high and the team’s mindset remained positive heading into overtime, something she enjoyed seeing from her fellow Bulls. “From the beginning of the game we all had good spirits, we had good vibes going, we were all positively cheering everyone on, working together and we got good results from it,” she said. “We have to work on sequences up the field and finishing, but we got two goals today, and I see more coming in the future.”
