Voters approve 2018-19 school budgets, new trustees take seats BY SARA-MEGAN WALSH SARA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Huntington Public Schools

2018-19 budget Huntington’s taxpayers passed Huntington Public School’s $129,812,991 budget for the 2018-19 school year by 1,215 votes to 314 votes, or approximately 80 percent approval. The adopted spending plan has a budget-to-budget increase of 2.85 percent, or approximately $3.6 million more than the current year. “I’m very thankful, obviously very pleased, but very thankful that the community continues to support our budget and additional propositions,” Huntington Superintendent James Polansky said. “It really makes a difference in the lives and education of our kids.” Polansky said the district’s spending plan has set aside funds to continue to increase and expand its education programs. Huntington High School will have a computer science course added as well as a virtual enterprise course — a new business elective which simulates an entrepreneurial business for students to run. The average Huntington homeowner will see their annual school taxes increase by an estimated $213.69, or approximately $17.81 a month. This is based on the average home having an assessed value of $3,430, in which an assessed value is a dollar value placed on the property by the Town of Huntington solely for the purposes of calculating taxes based on comparable home sales and other factors. Proposition 2 District residents approved Proposition 2 by 1,293 to 209 votes. The measure will allow Huntington school officials to withdraw about $7 million from the dis-

Lynda Tine-D’Anna four children, who attend the district, including a high school senior and sophomore; a J. Taylor Finley Middle School eighth-grader and a sixth-grader at Woodhull Intermediate School. Tine-D’Anna was immediately congratulated on her win by Rogan, White and several candidates and school administrators on Tuesday night. “We had five outstanding candidates running for board of education, and to be honest, I would be happy to work with any of them,” the superintendent said.

Northport-East Northport

2018-19 budget Northport and East Northport residents approved the district’s $166,810,381 budget for the upcoming 2018-19 school year, 2,287 votes to 754 votes. The budget contains a 2.15 percent year-to-year increase, or $3.5 million more than the current year. The district’s approved spending plan will allow starting a new alternative high school program for students struggling with the traditional model and expand the district’s coteaching model across all grade levels. It will also be able to move forward with its one-to-one Chromebook initiative by providing personal laptops with Google applications to students entering ninth grade as well as purchasing a new piano for its music department. There are also funds set aside in the 2018-19 budget to purchase new athletic

HUNITNGTON SCHOOL DISTRICT

Across the Town of Huntington, voters went to polls May 15 and gave their stamp of approval to their districts’ 2018-19 budgets. Many of the districts are planning to use funds to increase their security measures in schools or make critical infrastructure and building repairs. Yet, threat of hazardous weather and early evening storms made for a light voter turnout, with fewer ballots being cast than in previous years. This disappointed some board of education members, who rely on their taxpayers’ votes as a critical measure of community feedback.

trict’s capital reserves fund for critical infrastructure repairs. The list of projects includes the replacement of the roofs at three elementary schools, Flower Hill, Jefferson and Southdown at $1.5 million each; tile replacement in 17 bathrooms at Jefferson and Nathaniel Woodhull School; security vestibules at Flower Hill and Washington primary schools; and replacing two of Woodhull’s boilers. Proposition 3 Voters also cast their ballots in favor of Proposition 3, which passed 1,260 votes to 238 votes. The district can move forward to create a new building improvement fund. The superintendent said the fund is necessary in order to transfer money from the district’s existing repair reserve, which can primarily be used in emergencies, to a newly named capital reserve that will be used for turf field replacement. Huntington board of education Huntington school district residents decided to choose experienced representatives rather than seeking new voices as they selected between five candidates running for three open seats on their board of education. Incumbent Christine Biernacki, receiving 1,029 votes, and Thomas DiGiacomo, receiving 897 votes, were both re-elected to serve another term. Newcomer Lynda TineD`Anna received 816 votes and will take the seat of trustee Emily Rogan, who did not run for re-election. Challengers Michele Deegan received 686 votes, followed by Alvin White who received 566 votes. “I want to thank voters so much for their support,” Tine-D’Anna said. “I’m so excited to have this opportunity to work for them, to work for all the children and to work together with this great administration and the teachers we have.” Tine-D’Anna has lived in Huntington Village for 21 years and is a world language teacher in the Syosset school district. She has served on many leadership committees including the high school steering committee for the Blue Ribbon School of Excellence application process, chair of the district’s Middle State Accreditation Evaluation Committee and as a founding member of the high school’s professional development program. The newly elected trustee has also served as Huntington school district’s Special Education PTA board member and volunteer. She lives with her husband, Nick, and

equipment for student-athletes including lacrosse helmets, treadmills, ellipticals and additional automated external defibrillators. The average Northport homeowner will see their annual school taxes increase by an estimated $159 per year. This is based on the average home having an assessed value of $3,800, in which an assessed value is a dollar value placed on the property by the Town of Huntington solely for the purposes of calculating taxes based on comparable home sales and other factors. Proposition 2 District voters cast their ballots in favor of Proposition 2, by 2,524 votes to 555 votes, Tuesday night. The measure will allow the district to take $900,000 out of the district’s capital reserve funds for infrastructure upgrades and repair. The list of districtwide projects includes fencing and gate replacement, door replacements, window replacement and heating and air conditioning unit upgrades and enhancements. Proposition 3 Taxpayers also gave their stamp of approval to Proposition 3, by 2,403 votes to 696 votes. The district will be able to establish a new Capital Reserve III Fund. The board members said that the fund is necessary for several critical infrastructural improvements including roof replacements of its buildings, window replacement, bathroom replacement,

New Ground opens veterans housing in Huntington BY SARA-MEGAN WALSH SARA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Two United States military veterans and their families will be the joining the Huntington community shortly as they take the keys to their new home. New Ground, a nonprofit dedicated to addressing veteran homelessness, held a ribbon cutting ceremony May 14 to celebrate the completion of its new two-family Rockne Street transitional home. “This is such a big deal for us,” said Shannon Boyle, executive director of the nonprofit. “This is our first residential property although we’ve been providing services to homeless veterans and their families for over two decades.” Boyle said her Levittown-based organization will work in collaboration with the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program offered by Northport VA’s Housing and Urban Development department to provide a place to live for homeless vets while they receive educational training, social services and financial literacy training. “Out of the 62 counties in New York state, Suffolk County It’s great that leads not only in terms of vetthis two-family erans in population, but also in the number of homeless vethome will erans,” Huntington Supervisor Chad Lupinacci (R) said. “It’s provide those that this two-family home coming back an great will provide those coming back opportunity to an opportunity to raise a family in a great neighborhood.” raise a family The home’s first residents in a great are expected to move in June according to Boyle, of which neighborhood.’ 1, one family has already been She said the veteran — Chad Lupinacci identified. is a single mother who is raising two daughters, ages 5 and 7. The girls will be enrolled in Harborfields school district. “Through Northport VA’s VASH program, the homeless veterans receive a voucher to help afford rent while receiving educational services,” Boyle said. The veteran is meeting with a social worker from New Ground every week to create and outline a series of goals while studying for her college entrance exams, according to Boyle. The family is anticipated to live in the home for a period of three to five years before being able to afford to rent a market-rate apartment or become homeowners. Boyle said a second veteran and his or her family has not yet been identified and approved, but several candidates are currently in the process of being interviewed and screened. “This is really going to be a miracle in these families lives,” U.S. Rep Tom Suozzi (D-Glen Cove) said. “A miracle like this only happens when people at New Grounds and the supporting groups put in the effort. Boyle said New Ground was able to complete the house thanks to Grant Havasy, managing partner of Blue & Gold Homes in Huntington, donating his time as general contractor overseeing the project. Other companies including AvalonBay Communities, Appliance World, Cosentino, Eagle Electrical Group Inc., and Prince Carpet & Floors also donated products and services. “On behalf of all the veteran families who will reside in this home as they work to put their lives back on track and establish a brighter future, I extend a heartfelt thank you to all who have made this possible,” Boyle said. “The outpouring of generosity has been tremendous from so many individuals and businesses that we have been able to transform this house beyond what we had dreamed possible.”

Harborfields school district

Harborfields voters approved the district’s $86,086,696 budget for the 2018-19 school year, by 966 votes to 275 votes. The approved

budget is an increase of nearly $2 million over the current year and will impose tax levy increase of 2.19 percent for district taxpayers. “The community’s continued support of the district allows us to provide a ‘world-class’ education to the children of our community,” Harborfields Superintendent Francesco Ianni said. “We look forward to implementing several enhancements to the curriculum for next year, including the restructuring of the high school science research program and a new literacy curriculum. In addition, the proposed budget will allow us to enhance security throughout the district.” The superintendent said the district will reorganize its pupil personnel services department to include a chairperson of special education, allowing the school psychologist more time for child-focused responsibilities. The proposed spending plan features funding to restructure Harborfields High School’s science research program to allow the teacher to have dedicated time set aside to support students in their individual pursuit of science inquiry. Other enhancements contained in the district’s approved budget include a new literacy curriculum; additional resources for science classes districtwide; and new educational classes in engineering, computer science and business entrepreneurship. The average Harborfields school district resident will see their annual school taxes increase by an estimated $222.80 per year. This is based on the average home having an assessed value of $4,000, in which an assessed value is a dollar value placed on the property by the Town of Huntington solely for the purposes of calculating taxes based on comparable home sales and other factors. “The community’s input was vital to the creation of this budget, so I thank those residents who participated throughout the process and those who took the time to

Elwood school district

Elwood taxpayers passed the district’s $61,606,082 budget for the 2018-19 school year by 896 votes to 327 votes. The adopted budget is an increase of nearly $1.3 million over the current year. It represents a tax levy increase of 2.71 percent, which fell under the state-mandated tax cap. “On behalf of the entire administration and board of education, I would like to thank all residents who voted in support of the proposed 2018-19 budget,” Elwood Superintendent Kenneth Bossert said in a

statement. “Your support will allow the district to continue to enhance our academic program for our students, as well as increase security throughout the district. We are continually grateful to the Elwood community for its support of our district.” Proposition 2 Voters cast their ballots in favor of Proposition 2, approving by 854 votes to 345 votes. The measure will allow school officials to create a capital reserve fund for future improvement projects that were not included in the bond approved earlier this year. Under the terms approved, the district will set aside a maximum of $500,000 a year, not to exceed a total of $5 million over a 10-year period to help pay for capital projects. Elwood board of education Two incumbent Elwood board of education trustees ran unopposed for another term serving their community. Trustee Heather Mammolito received 918 votes and trustee James Tomeo, received 983 votes to be re-elected to their seats.

Renaissance Downtowns apologizes for Gateway Plaza mix up The master developer behind Huntington Station’s revitalization plans wishes it was more transparent with residents outraged by proposed changes it was seeking to Gateway Plaza. Renaissance Downtowns and developer G2G Development submitted a request April 24 seeking to change the composition of apartments that will make up the Gateway Plaza building to be constructed on the corner of Olive Street and New York Avenue. It sought to construct 11 twobedroom apartments — not included in the original plans, which called for a mix of one-bedroom and studio units — by decreasing the number of studios. Huntington Station resident Matt Harris raised his objections at the May 1 Huntington Town board meeting, highlighting the requested changes to town officials. “The people of Huntington Station have been lied to for 48 years,” Harris said. “Developer after developer after developer has lied to us and now Renaissance is doing it.” Councilman Gene Cook (R) immediately backed Harris’ opinion, saying he approved the project to construct one-bedroom and

He called for the town attorney’s office to launch an investigation into the developer’s request. “We have been keenly aware of the concerns raised by community members over the last couple of weeks about the Gateway Project,” said Ryan Porter, co-CEO and president of Renaissance Downtowns in a May 12 statement on a website for the project:

Source the Station. “While we don’t necessarily agree with the assumptions being made regarding two-bedroom units of this size and nature we clearly hear the community concerns. We are regretful that our transparency with the community over the last [six] years did not come through in this instance.” The proposed changes were received by the town’s department of planning and

environment after the board approved transferring of the town-owned parcel at 1000 New York Avenue to the developer with a 4-1 vote at its April 10 meeting, according to town spokeswoman Lauren Lembo. Councilman Ed Smyth (R) had been the sole objector to the land transfer calling it a “betrayal of public trust.” The 1000 New York Avenue property was one of the four parcels needed to move forward with the construction of Gateway Plaza. The approved site plan for 1000-1026 New York Avenue calls for the construction of a mixed-used building consisting of 16,000-square-feet of retail space and a total of 66 apartments. The existing Brothers Barber Shop will remain in place. Renaissance Downtowns celebrated the grand opening of its Northridge apartments with a May 7 ribbon cutting and ceremony. The building, located at the intersection of Northridge Street and New York Avenue, is one of the first concrete steps in the town’s Huntington Station revitalization project. Construction of the mixed-use building began in January 2017 by Huntington-based Blue & Gold Homes contractors. It consists of 6,500-square-feet of retail space on the ground level, with a total of 16 one-bedroom apartments on the second and third floors.

Signs of Villadom rumble For anyone who has walked or driven through Huntington in the last week, there are clear signs a battle is brewing. Huntington residents have taken up a charge against Villadom Corp.’s proposed commercial project, Elwood Orchard, which is commonly referred to as Villadom mall. Residents and interested parties

both for and against the project have ramped up publicity with deployment of lawn signs, direct mailers to residents, banners along roadways and event electric display signs on truck. Town of Huntington officials adjourned the public hearing scheduled for May 17 at the developer’s request to amend the application.

Withdrawal from deal gets Iran closer to nuclear weapons Your turn

BY JACK HARRINGTON

The 2015 international accord known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and colloquially as the Iran Deal, brought the United States and the world closer to the goal of a nuclear weapons-free Iran than any other initiative since 1979. The agreement negotiated with the U.S., the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia and China was the re-

sult of principled and tough American-led diplomacy. After recertifying Iranian compliance with the deal on multiple occasions, the Republican Trump administration formally announced May 8 the U.S. was withdrawing from the JCPOA to the consternation of many of our closest allies. The president’s decision is shortsighted. The administration’s argument in part against the deal — an argument that began as campaign rhetoric and crystallized into policy — is that the JCPOA does not address other bad acts by the Iranian regime. Everyone is aware that the Iranian government has been responsible for destabilizing the Middle East, sponsoring terrorist organizations and repressing human rights. However, that was not the purpose of the Iranian nuclear deal. Iran’s dark history is exactly why the Obama administration prioritized preventing the Iranian regime from developing nuclear weapons. This has been and must continue to be our primary objective. In its short existence, the JCPOA has seen 17,000 centrifuges and 95 percent of Iran’s highly enriched uranium stockpile removed and Iran’s only plutonium reactor disabled, according to the Arms Control Association, a national nonpartisan organization. Meanwhile, the deal has ensured that the best nuclear inspectors in the world watch Iran’s entire supply chain — from the mines to the

laboratories — to ensure the Iranian regime cannot produce or transport such weapons under the radar. All of this was achieved because the U.S. rallied allies and other partners to the negotiating table, and it was done without firing a shot. If the deal collapses, Iran will have no limits or inspectors on their nuclear program, meaning they could rush for a bomb, in turn setting us on a path for another incredibly destructive conflict in the Middle East. The Iran Deal is not built on trust, but rather verification. The International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.S. intelligence community and leading military figures in the Trump administration — including Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford — have all at various times assessed that Iran remained in compliance and was not building a nuclear weapon. We have other tools in our toolbox, including sanctions within the parameters of the JCPOA, to counter Iran’s missile programs and terrorism sponsorship. The United States should not abandon the JCPOA’s progress toward full denuclearization because it doesn’t simultaneously cure all other ills. At a broader level, the decision to withdraw from the JCPOA is the latest example of an administration retreating from its position of global leadership. We continue to alienate our staunchest allies and are sending a terrible signal to other bad

actors —including North Korea — about the value of American leadership and diplomacy. We will also create the space for China and Russia to profit diplomatically and economically by engaging with Iran if we will not. Campaign rhetoric notwithstanding, America cannot bomb away a country’s understanding of nuclear science. We owe it not only to the international community but also the proud men and women of our own armed forces to exhaust every diplomatic action before going to war. This is certainly true given that the JCPOA has yielded more progress than any other initiative to date. In response to President Trump’s announcement, President Obama (D) said, “In a democracy, there will always be changes in policies and priorities from one administration to the next.” Obama’s statement continued: “But the consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to risks eroding America’s credibility, and puts us at odds with the world’s major powers.” President Obama is correct: America must remain in and improve, where possible, the Iran Deal.

SPORTS Coach, mentor, all-around good guy changed lives of many BY KEVIN REDDING KEVIN@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

KRISTIE ALTEBRANDO

Clockwise from above, Walt Whitman head wrestling coach Vinny Altebrando with his family; with state champion Terron Robinson, at center; and with his youngest faughter Mirabella.

KRISTIE ALTEBRANDO

“The best compliment is that Vinny turned athletes into state winners and he helped nonathletes become winners themselves,” Rose said. “He’s a guy this district can’t replace.” Altebrando also played a large role in launching adaptive physical education and a Special Olympics program for the district’s special needs students. “It’s an amazing void that he leaves in the school,” fellow Walt Whitman physical education teacher and childhood friend Scott Wolff said. “He was this big, tough, sweet guy; this big center of life in the building and that’s gone now, so we’re all trying to fill a little piece of it — just by building up spirits, being nicer to each other, spending more time with the kids who are struggling. I can already feel the effects.” Wolff and Altebrando, who was raised by his mother and older brothers after the death of his father at a young age, both went through the Middle Country school system; graduated from Newfield High School a year apart; and were hired at South Huntington Elementary School on the same day in 1994. According to Wolff, Altebrando has been the same since he first met him. “Vinny was always the best guy to be around — fun, humble and knew how to make everybody feel comfortable and special,” he said. Terron Robinson, 19, knows that about the coach perhaps better than anybody. The 2017 Walt Whitman graduate first met his coach as an eighth-grader as a budding wrestler. Robinson said he’d long been cast aside by teachers and other students at school due to his family background — two of his brothers had been to prison, and he thought everybody assumed he’d wind up there as well. He lost his mother at a young age and by the time he was in ninth grade, his father and a brother died, too. It didn’t take long, however, for him to have somebody to turn to. “In my eyes, that man [Altebrando] was like my father,” said Robinson, who, under the guidance of Altebrando, was a state champion

TERRON ROBINSON

When it comes to handling students, the teachers, administrators and faculty members at South Huntington school district have a new mantra these days: WWAD, or “What Would Altebrando Do?” It’s a tribute to a man who, as a physical education and special education teacher and renowned varsity wrestling coach at Walt Whitman High School for the last 15 years, consistently went out of his way to make students and student-athletes’ lives better — particularly the “underdogs” that struggled in and out of school. Vincent Altebrando was somebody who once bought a tuxedo and prom ticket for a wrestler who came from a broken home and couldn’t afford them, and then dressed in a tuxedo himself, picked up the teenager and chauffeured him to the big event. He was a beloved local whose nine-hour wake service last month drew a crowd of 3,000 people, where hundreds more had to be turned away. The renowned coach, a Miller Place resident who died April 20 at Stony Brook University Hospital after being diagnosed with HLH, a rare autoimmune disease, at 51, had a big heart and an infectious laugh, an affinity for belting out Beatles songs, and a tough-love competitive spirit that not only put the district on the map athletically, but helped his players beyond the sport. There really was nothing he wouldn’t have done to help his students, according to those closest to him. “He was always about the kids,” his wife Kristie Altebrando said. “He was always doing things for them. And just when you thought it was enough because his plate was full, he found more room on it. He’s changed a lot of lives.” Both in school and at home, she pointed out, referring to their four daughters, each of whom compete in sports, from lacrosse to volleyball and field hockey. “With his attitude, grace, helpfulness and encouragement, it’s all made them who they are,” she said. “I just hope he’s looking down, knowing that while he was alive he was doing all this for people.” Robin Rose, Walt Whitman’s head varsity football coach and childhood friend of Vincent Altebrando’s, said the wrestling coach had a myriad of accolades. He won the sportsmanship award at this year’s Suffolk County Wrestling Coaches Association ceremony.

wrestler by 11th-grade. “He saw the good side of me when nobody else did. He was always there for me no matter what. Without him, I’d probably be in a jail cell.” Altebrando made sure Robinson always had food and clean clothes. He pushed him to do well in school and treat everybody with respect. He took Robinson to the doctor when he was hurt. The coach would even take it upon himself to drive every morning from his home in Miller Place to where his studentathlete lived in Mastic Beach, pick him up and take him to school in South Huntington — where the two of them often worked out together before classes started. “There was no greater bond I’ve seen between coach and player than the one they had,” Walt Whitman high school athletic director Jim Wright said. “Vinny just saw him as a kid with potential, as a wrestler and also as a person. He brought out the good qualities in Terron and turned him into a citizen.” Altebrando graduated from Newfield High School in 1984. He was a star athlete on football and wrestling teams, the latter being a somewhat lackluster sport in the district before he came along. “Then it became an event to go to,” Wolff said, laughing.

Altebrando went to Springfield College in Massachusetts, where he wrestled and received a degree in physical education. It was during a hectic commuting day from his first teaching job in Brooklyn that Altebrando bumped into an old familiar face — his future wife — from high school days. “We took the train home together and we were engaged within a month,” Kristie Altebrando said. “He was my lifeline, my go-to guy … and it’s overwhelming to see the outpouring of love from so many people for what he’s done and see how many lives he’s touched.” Natalia Altebrando, 13, a North Country Road middle school student and goalie on a travel lacrosse team, said her father taught her on and off the field how to find courage and strength, and to be kind to others. “He made such an impact on my life,” she said. “This has broken my heart in a thousand pieces, and the only one who would [normally] be able to fix that for me is him.” Altebrando’s oldest daughter, Anjelia, 17, will be following in her father’s footsteps and attending Springfield College in the fall. “He was my role model and really pushed me to work hard for what I want,” she said. “He let me know that anything is possible.”

Tigers finish first undefeated season since 2009 BY DESIRÉE KEEGAN DESIREE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM All season long, Northport’s girls lacrosse team has shown it can handle the pressure, and Friday was no different. Olivia Carner had three goals and three assists and Emerson Cabrera added four goals and one assist to lead Northport to a 15-9 win over crosstown rival Huntington May 11 and complete the program’s first perfect season since 2009. “It feels good to go undefeated — the girls have been working extremely hard and have stayed focused all season,” said head coach Carol Rose of her 16-0 Tigers. “It’s not easy to go undefeated — the

pressure can be overwhelming, but this group handled the pressure all season with poise, grit and determination. I love seeing them be successful because this group has earned the title ‘undefeated division champions.’” Northport came out of the gate firing on all cylinders, building up a 9-1 advantage over the Blue Devils by the halftime break. Carner said the team’s closeness has led to this year’ successes. “Throughout the season our team has become closer and closer — knowing how much potential we have,” she said. “We all play for one another and work well as a team. We all want each other to do whatever it takes to win.” The team’s leading scorer credited its strong bond for her own personal accomplishments this season. “It felt great being able to contribute to our wins and is easy to do so because our team is so close and we all want to achieve the same goal,” said Carner, who leads all Suffolk scorers with 64 goals and 25 assists. “When the final whistle blew it was an awesome feeling of pride knowing all our hard work had paid off and we were finishing undefeated.” She said with an undefeated season and as the No. 1 seed, she knows her team has a target on its back, but said the Tigers will work that much harder this postseason to prove they’re where they belong. “We want to get back to that county title game,” she said. Northport lost 13-3 to Middle Country in 2017, ending a 13-5 season in the county finals. Senior Danielle Pavinelli, who is the second Tiger in the top 10 in the county in scoring, coming in at No. 9 with 46 goals

Olivia Carner, above, and Emerson Cabrera, on left, seen competing in the Suffolk County championship last year against Middle Country, led Northport in a 15-9 win. and 25 assists, said she only sees her team continuing to thrive this time around. As the top team Northport earns a first-round bye. The Tigers will take on the winner of the May 16 matchup between No. 8 Sachem East and No. 9 Sachem North, results of which were not available by press time. Northport will host the winner Saturday, May 19, at the local Veterans Park at 11 a.m. “We’re motivated and determined this time around, especially knowing so many teams are looking to beat us,” Pavinelli

said. “I believe we will be able to handle whatever teams throw at us in playoffs. We’re the closest we’ve ever been — we treat each other like family and we’re always looking out for each other. Each and every one of us understands how hard we have to play in order to go far.” She attributed much of the team’s success and will to win to Rose, who eclipsed 800 career victories this season. “She encourages us every day to be the best we can be,” Pavinelli said. “And we owe this season to her.”

Huntington’s Flores advances to Suffolk tennis finals DARIN REED

When Jack Flores won the Suffolk County tennis singles title last spring, he came out of nowhere as a freshman. A year later, there’s a long list of foes looking to topple him, but the top Huntington talent isn’t about to wave the white flag. Jack Flores looked like the champ he is when he captured the Division I crown May 7 in straight sets, 6-1, 6-2. The Blue Devil star made it look easy, but it really wasn’t. He had to play near flawless tennis to dispatch Half Hollow Hills East senior Abhinav Srivastava, who was ranked third in the county and fifth in the state last spring, and is well known for a devastating forehand and all around great play. “I went into the tournament confidently,” Flores said. “I really enjoyed the tournament and went in prepared, because I knew there would be tough competition. I also want to thank my coaches and my family for supporting me throughout the tournament. I’m looking forward to counties.” Huntington head coach Jamie Fishlow said the key to the match was Flores’ “aggressive deep shots to his opponent’s backhand, good defense when he needed it and tremendous footwork.” Flores will be seeded No. 1 when he takes the court for the county title at

William Floyd. The county tournament spans three days. Flores said the key to repeating is “to go in confident and play one point at a time. I also have to stay mentally stable throughout the tournament.” The state championships will be held May 31-June 2 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens. — HUNTINGTON ATHLETICS

OPINION Editorial

Letters to the editor

METO/CREATIVE CONNECTIONS

The power of sharing opinions the right way It would behoove us all to be active instead of passive government participants. As we continue to use social media as a way of communication, its use as a focal point of complaints and criticism continues to soar. In high school, participation in government classes is part of the core curriculum, designed to focus on citizenship and what it means to take part in a democracy. The culmination of a student’s social studies experience should ready him or her to apply the content-rich study of contemporary and historic public issues to the current ones, and increase awareness of the rights and responsibilities of a United States citizen. These goals are laid out clearly by the U.S. Department of Education. Just as the course is geared to engage students in the analysis of public policies and issues and encourage their practice of freedom of speech to voice opinions or ask critical questions to those in administrative or political power, we implore every nonstudent to do the same. Whether it’s disapproval about how a district is readying itself for a potential loss in revenue to fund programs in a budget, or the concern of an increase in the homeless population in a given area, civic engagement goes far beyond complaining in a Facebook post. Elected officials take office for the stated purpose of representing the interests of a constituency. Before opening Facebook, write a letter or an email to your government representative, school superintendent or board of education president, or attend a meeting to speak during public comment. Elected officials want their phones and email accounts buzzing with issues important to people they represent. That’s why they decide to serve, or at least it should be. Recently, when residents were concerned about the construction of a water fountain at a new dog park in Selden, many took to a private Facebook page to complain and tagged Brookhaven Town Councilman Kevin LaValle (R-Selden) in their posts. Others gathered together and attended a town board meeting to make their sentiments heard. This active participation not only gets a message across in a more mature manner, but it also can create change. With these complaints and asked questions, they were able to place the fountain in an appropriate location inside the dog park and ensure the completion of the project included a rock bed to cover the fountain’s drain. In Huntington Town, residents have joined together to create banners, post signs and send out mailers to let neighbors know of public hearings regarding a 486,380-square-foot commercial project. The group, in opposition to the project, is attempting to strengthen its unified front with more bodies. These cases prove participation in government matters. Our Founding Fathers established this government to protect people’s basic rights and create order. If someone feels or believes he or she has an opinion that should be heard, or feels their basic rights are being threatened, engagement in democracy needs to happen beyond feverish typing across a keyboard behind a computer screen.

Huntington is fighting LIPA for you Protecting the Town of Huntington’s taxpayers and students in the Northport-East Northport School District has been and continues to be my No. 1 priority in the town’s handling of the LIPA lawsuit since taking office as supervisor on Jan. 1. In 1997, LIPA and LILCO negotiated and signed a Power Supply Agreement. In the agreement, LIPA and LILCO committed to maintaining the amount of property taxes they were paying and never challenging the tax assessment on the Northport power plant unless the town unreasonably raised the assessment — this language was in the actual contract, making the Town of Huntington and the NorthportEast Northport School District third-party beneficiaries to that contract. This contractual promise to the town and the school district was also communicated to the public by former Gov. George Pataki and LIPA’s thenchairman and chief executive officer, Richard Kessel, through other documentation prepared by LIPA and submitted to the IRS and other government agencies. LIPA and LILCO — and its successor National Grid, which currently owns Northport power plant— honored the agreement

and their commitment for 13 years. Unfortunately, in 2010, National Grid and LIPA reneged on the agreement and their commitment to the taxpayers of our town and the Northport-East Northport School District by challenging the tax assessment on the Northport power plant, demanding that the assessment be reduced by 90 percent. If they are successful in court, they are seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in retroactive tax refunds. Since 1997, the Town of Huntington, the Northport-East Northport School District, residents and business owners have relied on the commitment made in the agreement and promises communicated to the public by LIPA officials and public officials. Business owners have invested in our community and residents have purchased and improved homes, deciding to raise families here, based on the benefits this contractual agreement bestowed upon the community and its school district. Let us not forget: there are costs to a community for hosting such a facility – aesthetic, environmental and the unknown impact on our residents’ health, critical factors that must be considered when evaluating the

outcome of this case. The town honored its commitment, never unreasonably raising the assessment on the Northport power plant property. In fact, the town never raised the tax assessment at all, even when National Grid made capital improvements to the plant, which would have justified an increase. If granted by the court, the massive reduction in the tax assessment and retroactive tax refunds would be devastating to Huntington taxpayers. The Northport-East Northport School District would have to make drastic cuts to educational programs — from athletics to the arts — and staffing, significantly damaging academic and scholarship opportunities for our students. The town has been vigorously fighting this case in court and we are fighting for you. We will continue to use all legal options at our disposal to ensure LIPA and National Grid honor their contractual promise. If it is not possible to achieve an outcome that is beneficial to the taxpayers of the Town of Huntington and our students, I am prepared to take the case to trial and win.

Trump’s motivations, enablers President Trump’s motivation for many of his policies is his animus toward the previous president, Barack Obama: his opposition to Obamacare and the Iranian arms deal. Also encouraging the president are his recent choices of Pompeo for secretary of state and Bolton as assistant to the president for national security

affairs who share his hawkish views. Then there is his enabling legal adviser Giuliani who has put himself center stage in the news cycle. Giuliani on Fox News with Sean Hannity stated that the FBI acted like storm troopers, like the Nazis in the 1930s and 1940s. The next day our Twitter president changed his story

about Stormy Daniels regarding the $130,000 payment to her, so that she would not tell the press about the affair. This gift was given a few days before the 2016 election. Didn’t this violate campaign finance laws and was it not a cover-up of his questionable behavior?

Herbert Laub Stony Brook

Remember dad on his day, too Thank you for focusing on and honoring mothers in the May 10 editorial. It’s a most important role that cannot be filled by anyone who makes anything less than a wholehearted, time-consuming, self-sacrificing commitment to another developing and needy

human being. I look forward to an equally edifying Father’s Day issue acknowledging the vital role that has been diminished, but never adequately replaced, by laws, welfare, programs and more, induced and aggravated by a general moral breakdown

and abdication of personal responsibility, which have eviscerated the patriarchal provider and protector of the family and strength of the nation.

OPINION

Scientists use signs to save lives

W

hat do the signs tell us? In Hawaii, numerous small earthquakes caused parts of Big Island to shake. Geologists, who monitor the islands regularly, warned of a pending volcanic eruption. They were right, clearing people away from lava flows. How did they know? It’s a combination of history and science. Researchers in the area point to specific signs that are reflections of patterns that have developed in past years. The small earthquakes, like the By Daniel Dunaief feel of the ground trembling as a herd of elephants is approaching in the Serengeti, suggest the movement of magma underneath the ground. Higher volumes of lava flows could come later on, as in 1955 and 1960, say USGS scientists in the archipelago.

D. None of the above

The science involves regular monitoring of events, looking for evidence of what’s going on below the surface. “Hopefully we’ll get smart enough that we can see [tremors] coming or at least be able to use that as a proxy for having people on the ground watching these things,” Tina Neal, scientist-in-charge at USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, explained to KHON2 News in Honolulu. People look for signs in everything they do, hoping to learn from history and to use whatever evidence is available to make predictions and react accordingly. Your doctor does it during your annual physical, monitoring your blood chemistry, checking your heart and lungs, and asking basic questions about your lifestyle. Scientists around Long Island are involved in a broad range of studies. Geneticists, for example, try to see what the sequence of base pairs might mean for you. Their information, like the data the geologists gather in Hawaii, doesn’t indicate exactly what will happen and when, but it can suggest developments that might affect you.

Cancer researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Stony Brook University are using tools like the gene editing system called CRISPR to see how changing the genetic code affects the course of development or the pathway for a disease. Gene editing can help localize the regions responsible for the equivalent of destructive events in our own bodies, showing where they are and what sequences cause progression. Scientists, often working six or seven days a week, push the frontiers of our ability to make sense of whatever signs they collect. Once they gather that information, they can use it to help create more accurate diagnoses and to develop therapies that have individualized benefits. Indeed, not all breast cancers are the same, which means that not all treatments will have the same effect. Some cancers will respond to one type of therapy, while others will barely react to the same treatment. Fundamental, or basic, research is critical to the understanding of translational challenges like treating Alzheimer’s patients or curing potentially deadly fungal infections.

Indeed, most scientists who “discover” a treatment will recognize the seminal studies that helped them finish a job started years — and in some cases decades — before they developed cures. Treatments often start long before the clinical stages, when scientists want to know how or why something happens. The pursuit of knowledge for its own sake can lead to unexpected and important benefits. Outside the realm of medicine, researchers on Long Island are working on areas like understanding the climate and weather, and the effect on energy production. Numerous scientists at SBU and Brookhaven National Laboratory study the climate, hoping to understand how one of the most problematic parts of predicting the weather — clouds — affects what could happen tomorrow or in the next decade. The research all these scientists do helps us live longer and better lives, offering us early warnings of developing possibilities. Scientists not only interpret what the signs tell us, but can also help us figure out the right signs to study.

person’s life. Now we are in the time of Edwardian England, and the person who overhears the conversation and offers herself up for self-improvement is Eliza Doolittle. A Cockney flower girl in Piccadilly Circus, she is both terrified of what is to come and palpably ambitious, insisting that while she is a “good girl,” not looking for anything carnal, she desperately wants to learn. So Higgins takes her into his elegant home and professorial life and works intensely with her in his laboratory for months while Pickering looks on and offers help wherever he is needed — after being assured by Higgins that there will not be any hanky-panky involved. Higgins vehemently asserts to Pickering that he is not interested in emotional relationships. The experiment between the high-born cerebral bachelor and the “guttersnipe” pupil thus begins. Will Higgins succeed and win the bet? We know Eliza will succeed, even as we watch her anguished attempts to learn what Higgins is working so hard to teach. There are testing moments for

her progress and teaching opportunities that include a riotously funny visit on opening day to Ascot Racecourse. Fun is poked unmercifully at the pretensions of the upper classes. Finally, the big test arrives, a ball where Eliza is going to be introduced to and judged by those swells assembled. She, of course, pulls it off and is thought to be of Hungarian royal blood. But is she congratulated? Well, you have to go see the play. I’m not about to spoil the ending for those unfamiliar with the plot. But her triumph is not the point. Her future is. What is to become of this person who has transcended her class, with its freedoms, grime and penury notwithstanding, and is now locked into the bourgeois rules for women in an ossified society? Is she to become Higgins’ mistress? And what about him? She has now awakened emotions in him that he has long walled off from his daily life. Will he ask her to marry him? He, too, has been transformed. The answer is that 1956 was quite different to 2018. Can you guess?

How the fair lady has changed

L

ucky me, our Mother’s Day celebration this year included a trip into New York City to see “My Fair Lady.” Now this show, which I first saw on Broadway in 1956 just after it was launched, was a trip down memory lane for me. It was also a bellwether for how much our culture has changed. At the time of its premiere 62 years ago, the By Leah S. Dunaief play was the “Hamilton” of its time, creating the adulation and frenzied response for tickets that we are familiar with today. “My Fair Lady” was a different sort of musical for its many-layered themes and clever, witty lyrics. It stood apart from the golden era of Rodgers and Hammerstein marvels like “South

Between you and me

Pacific” and “Oklahoma!” that had preceded it. This wasn’t in the mold of a romantic musical but rather one about personal transformation and English class rigidity. The play, by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, had as its inspiration from the ancient world, Ovid’s “Metamorphoses,” and more recently George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion.” This is the story of a sculptor, talented but alone, who carves a beautiful woman out of stone and then falls in love with her. He prays to Venus to bring her to life, and the goddess of love hears him. The statue becomes flesh and blood beneath his hands, and what comes next is the essence of the story. In the Lerner and Loewe iteration, two high society phoneticians named Henry Higgins and retired army Col. Hugh Pickering make a bet over whether the way English people speak — their accents — lock them into their class and station for their entire lives. Higgins feels that if he can teach a low-born pupil to speak the King’s English, he can change that
