Middle Country Central School District overwhelmingly passed the district’s $250,124,601 budget, 1,438-495. “On behalf of the Middle Country Central School District Board of Education, central administration, teachers and staff, I want to express my deep gratitude and appreciation to the Middle Country community for its continued support of the district and the educational program we provide our students,” Superintendent Roberta Gerold said. “As a result of years of thoughtful financial planning and sound decision making,

SPORTS Vinny Altebrando dies of rare autoimmune disease at 51 BY KEVIN REDDING KEVIN@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

TERRON ROBINSON

Clockwise from above, Walt Whitman head wrestling coach Vinny Altebrando with state champion Terron Robinson, at center; with his oldest daughter Anjelia at his alma mater and her soon-to-be-college in Springfield, Massachusetts; and with his youngest 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

KRISTIE ALTEBRANDO

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.”

SUFFOLK COUNTY

Senate Majority Leader and State Sen. John Flanagan (R-East Northport) honored Suffolk County Legislator Leslie Kennedy (RNesconset) as his 2018 Woman of Distinction. Flanagan recognized Kennedy for what he said is her selfless dedication to the community and her efforts on behalf of all the residents of Suffolk County. “Legislator Kennedy is a devoted public servant who is a great role model for all of the young women in our region,” Flanagan said. “She is a tireless advocate for her constituents who overcame her health crisis to continue her efforts to make life better for all who live in Suffolk County.” Kennedy, a lifelong resident of Commack, worked for over 13 years as a legislative aide in the county Legislature before joining the body as a member in 2015. A public servant, Kennedy is a constant presence throughout the towns of Smithtown and Brookhaven by what Flanagan said is always working to protect the way of life of all of her

constituents. While in office, Kennedy has focused on protecting taxpayers, preserving the Long Island environment and ensuring the safety of students in her community. Kennedy is currently continuing her education at Suffolk County Community College’s Credential in Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counseling program in an effort to better serve the residents. Prior to her service in government, she attended nursing school at SCCC and worked at John T. Mather Memorial Hospital in a variety of capacities for over 30 years. She has also worked in the private sector and at a rehabilitation facility working with individuals with substance abuse issues. “It is an immense privilege to be recognized by the New York State Senate as the 2018 Woman of Distinction for the work I have done in my community,” Kennedy said. “I am humbled by the opportunity to hold this title and I intend to continue my work to better the lives of the people of Suffolk County.”

SPORTS Newfield falls in first round of baseball playoffs BY BILL LANDON

‘We’ll go in with the mentality that if the 17th seed beats the No. 1 seed, anybody can beat anyone on any given day.’

BILL LANDON

Although the double-elimination game didn’t go as planned, Bobby Vath got by with a little help from his friends. The first-inning showing was all visiting Connetquot needed to get past Newfield, 3-0, in the first round of baseball playoffs May 14. With a runner in scoring position, a Vath pitch was drilled deep to left field for a ground-rule double and a 1-0 lead. Three pitches later, a passed ball at the plate put Connetquot ahead 2-0. “I went back into the dugout after the top of the first, and they were right there ready to pick me up,” the senior said of his teammates. “So I was ready to go back out there in the second and fight for my team.” Newfield was unable to answer in the bottom of the inning, and unfortunately for Vath, an RBI-single gave the Thunderbirds an insurance run in the top of the second. Newfield was able to get the bat on the ball after that, but when the Wolverines got on base, Connetquot’s defense answered. Vath found his rhythm in the third, and despite Connetquot putting two runners on base in the top of the sixth, the senior didn’t give up a run the rest of the way. He struck out the next two batters in that inning to get out of the jam.

— Bobby Vath

Connetquot 3 Newfield 0

Clockwise from left, Bobby Vath tosses a heater; Kyle Johnson tags a runner out at second trying to steal; and Ryan Wappaus makes a catch to get a Connetquot player out at first. “He settled down after that first inning and started throwing outs, working off his fastball and had good command of the game,” Newfield head coach Eric Joyner said. “That’s just vintage Vath — he’s a great competitor.” Newfield faced an unexpected opponent May 15, after top-seeded Smithtown East was upset by No. 17 Bay Shore, 7-4. A weather delay pushed the outbracket game to Wednesday, May 16. Whether or not the game was played due to more rain and, if so, what the result was, the information was not available by press time.

“Our approach has to be the same — come out of the gate hot, protect the baseball and throw strikes,” Joyner said. “We’ll have to execute better offensively than we did today.” Vath said Newfield being the No. 8 seed doesn’t matter to him or his team, nor does it matter what seed the Wolverines are facing. “We’ll definitely get the scouting reports from the other coaches who’ve played [Smithtown East], because that helped us in this game too, but their number doesn’t scare us,” Vath said. “We’ll go in with the mentality that if the 17th seed beats the No. 1 seed, anybody can beat anyone on any given day.”

OPINION Editorial

Letters to the editor METO/CREATIVE CONNECTIONS

Zeldin votes against working families On April 12, Congressman Lee Zeldin voted for the so-called balanced budget amendment, a bill that sought to make massive cuts to Medicare, federal student loans and agriculture subsidies. The bill failed to pass the House, largely on party lines. But the cruelty of trying to balance a budget by gutting the social safety net cannot be ignored, particularly after a Republican tax cut for wealthiest Americans, that added over $1 trillion to our nation’s debt, was passed just months ago. This vote against working families is part of a larger pattern

in Lee Zeldin’s voting record. In 2017, he voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, even though the Ryan/Trump plan would cause 67,000 of his constituents to lose their health insurance. Zeldin also voted for the so-called Financial Choice Act, which rolled back many of the Dodd-Frank protections, a slap in the face to the hundreds of thousands of Long Islanders hurt by the fiscal irresponsibility that led to the Great Recession. Additionally, Zeldin voted for the budget resolution that paved the way for the Republican tax cut that will cause Long Islanders to lose their

state and local tax deductions. In reviewing Congressman Zeldin’s record, it is unclear who he is working for. Perhaps he’s doing the bidding of his wealthy donors, Robert and Rebekah Mercer. Perhaps he is angling for a job in the revolving door of the chaotic Trump administration. Whatever his intent, it’s clear that Lee Zeldin is not working for the constituents of this district. I look forward to getting out to vote for his opponent and repealing and replacing Congressman Lee Zeldin Nov. 6.

As a pediatrician, I feel compelled to speak out against the proposed cuts to SNAP in the farm bill, H.R.2, which is currently up for a vote in the House. SNAP is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. It is the most effective domestic U.S. hunger safety net program and nearly half of its recipients are children. Over one million children in New York state receive benefits from SNAP. Cuts to SNAP will adversely affect children in the nearly 22,000 households with children that participate in the program right

here on Long Island. SNAP delivers critical support to vulnerable families to ensure that they can put food on the table. Children who live in households that are food insecure are likely to be sick more often, recover from illness more slowly and be hospitalized more frequently. Lack of adequate healthy food can impair a child’s ability to perform well in school and can lead to higher levels of behavioral and emotional problems from preschool to adolescence. SNAP is reauthorized under

the farm bill, legislation that renews federal agriculture, trade and nutrition programs. At present, SNAP benefits are not enough to provide funding with the resources to obtain an adequate healthy diet, and they should not be cut further. No child should have to struggle with hunger and food insecurity in our country. SNAP serves as a critical support for the health and well-being of children, and its funding should not be cut in the farm bill.

The power of sharing opinions the right way SNAP important to children’s health 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.

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 F.B.I. 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

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
