Audit of Mount Sinai shows surplus fund balance
BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Most people would be ecstatic to have millions of dollars put aside for a rainy day, but for school districts it’s not such a benefit, at least according to state law. The New York State comptroller, who serves as a financial watchdog on public institutions, issued a report June 1 that said the Mount Sinai School District had amassed millions of dollars in its fund budget higher than the legal max of 4 percent of the districts overall budget. Mount Sinai has said it intends to comply with the suggestions of the report, but some trustees said the restrictions on rainy-day funds only hamper the district’s ability to handle its finances. “If you spent all the money you got every year, and had nothing left in the end, how fiscally responsible is that?” incoming board trustee Steve Koepper said. The report said officials overestimated expenditures by more than $7.5 million and had underestimated revenues by $1.7 million from the 2014-15 through the 2016-17 school years. In the three years examined in the report, the district operated at a surplus and did not use any of its appropriated fund balance. This led to Mount Sinai’s unrestricted fund balance to be equal to 19.8 percent of the overall 2016-17 budget, way above the 4 percent limit. The unassigned fund balance is devel-

hands, because if emergencies occur what do you do?” Koepper said. “Especially because you’re not allowed to overspend your budget.” Butry said the law is in place to keep school districts from having too much money on hand that’s not being put toward productive use. He added the comptroller’s office often recommends putting the surplus into a one-time expenditure or to use it in subsequent school years for reducing the tax levy. Brosdal said the district had already planned to use the unrestricted fund balance for the capital projects months before the district received any news on the comptroller’s findings. “We knew we couldn’t wait — those projects needed to be done now,” Brosdal said. “I think that according to the [budget] vote the residents agreed with us.” In the letter to the state comptroller the district also said it would be establishing a capital reserve of $750,000 in an effort to reduce the unassigned fund balance. The district letter said there’s five-year-plan effects that should reduce the overage by more than half, below the 4 percent limit, within two years. This will include tightening the amounts the district uses in fund balance appropriations for future school years. Butry said that the comptroller’s office was largely satisfied with the district’s response so far. “To their credit,” he said, “they did say they were putting this money to use.”

As members of the Mount Sinai Yacht Club in Cedar Beach came out June 10 for the 15th annual blessing of the fleet, most understood, as old a tradition it is, the blessing is a time-honored way to introduce a successful boating season. “This is for the entire season to make sure [the club’s members] have a safe and fun boating season,” said the Rev. Jerry Nedelka, venerable canon for the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island. He has conducted the blessing of the fleet ceremony for nearly two decades. “This is a great opportunity for fellowship among friends and club members.” This year Nedelka and the Rev. Francis Lasrado of Infant Jesus R.C. Church in Port Jefferson, held up a cross and gave blessings to the many boats, both large and small, of the yacht club’s members as they crossed in front of the marina. The reverends even blessed the Town of Brookhaven’s pump-out boat as it crawled its way across the harbor to the mouth of the Long Island Sound. The blessing was attended by club trustee Bill Dick along with various local government officials including Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker (D-Mount Sinai) and Brookhaven Town

Councilwoman Jane Bonner (C-Rocky Point). “This … shows our strong, communityfocused mindset,” Dick said. Anker said the club plays a big park protecting the local harbor front and environment, especially when it comes to the repair of the channel that travels from Mount Sinai Harbor into the Sound, which is constantly affected by erosion and storms. “They are good stewards of our environment,” Anker said. “They are an anchor in the marina community, and they have been instrumental in efforts to repair the channel.”

ECUCATION LORI MARKLAND
Clockwise from above, Rocky Point senior Kyle Markland has excelled in many of his hobbies, like earning championship trophies with his high school robotics team, Quantum Chaos, performing the bass at Carnegie Hall, and publishing a book he wrote on building robots.
Rocky Point senior jack of all trades, and master of many Even at 17, Rocky Point High School senior Kyle Markland is a renaissance man. Markland is a scientist and a musician, an engineer and an artist. This past year, he competed in several regional and national science fairs with his project on improving GPS technologies in autonomous cars. On May, 6 he played double bass for the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra of New York at Carnegie Hall. “The balance of his technical skills and his creativity — how he’s able to excel in both areas at such a high level is tremendous,” Rocky Point High School Principal Susan Crossan said. In 2013 Markland took a trip to the First LEGO League World Festival in St. Louis, Missouri. One of the first stops he made was to the Leonardo da Vinci exhibit, where he saw pictures and models of the wondrous inventions of one of the world’s most famous engineers and painters. It inspired something within himself. “It really took me back how intelligent he was — a lot of his engineering stuff, but also how he was an artist, with all his paintings like
the Mona Lisa — he stands out in so many different areas,” Markland said. “It’s something that I want to do for myself — stand out and do the best I can in a lot of different arenas.” Just like how da Vinci was an inventor and engineer, Markland too has a knack for understanding the way things work, and expressed his engineering skills through LEGO Mindstorms. Mindstorms is a branch of LEGO where technic blocks are used to program robots that can perform any number of functions. The senior took an interest in robotics when he was in 5th grade, saving up birthday money for several years before buying his first Mindstorms kit. In 2014 he created the YouTube channel Builderdude35, where he regularly posts tutorials and videos of his LEGO creations. Markland has over 14,000 subscribers, and said he regularly receives questions and requests for help from people all over the world. “The tutorials were a way of sharing my own experience that I learned through [school] or at home,” Markland said. In April he published the book “Building Smart LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Robots,” in which he highlights six of his unique robotics

projects — all of which he built and coded. One of his flagship creations is a quirky interactive robot named “Grunt” that will eat different colored LEGO blocks and react differently to each one. The robot will respond to when waved at, and even stick out a small LEGO claw to shake your hand. Markland’s mother, Lori, recalled her son marveling at the way things worked even at a young age. “His passion was cars, building, robotics, machinery,” she said. “When we brought him to a cotton candy machine, he was looking at all the moving parts underneath it.” The senior does all this with an incredibly busy schedule. He spends most of his time travelling, whether for scientific research, music or robotics, and still finds the time for schoolwork. To Markland, music is his most calming influence. It helps to settle his mind. He said the music is also not only just for him. “I want to feel like I’m using my time for something bigger than myself,” Markland said. “I want to feel accomplished. The channel is a way to teach people, the book is a way to teach people; my music is something that makes people happy.”
Markland will graduate salutatorian of his class. He was accepted into Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University and California Institute of Technology, and chose MIT not just because he sees it as the most prestigious, but because the admissions officer personally called to congratulate him. “[It’s] crazy, because they don’t really do that,” Markland said. Next week Markland will be travelling to participate at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he will face off against 1,800 students from over 75 different countries. “From the get-go Kyle has been very selfmotivated,” Markland’s science teacher and mentor at Nancy Hunter said. “I don’t think I’ve ever had a student who matches his ability define a problem, figure out how he’s going to go about solving a problem, and does it all.” While the science fair sounds daunting, the student has been methodical in his preparation. In times of stress, he said he thinks of something his cousin, a soldier in the U.S Marines, told him: “He told me, ‘there’s nothing more powerful than one who plans his work and works his plan.’”

SCPD: Opioid-related deaths trending down in 2018 BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Suffolk County’s police department has new numbers to get excited about. Despite being less than halfway through the year, the police department and medical examiner’s office report the county is on trend to see a nearly 100-person decrease in opioid-related deaths in 2018, compared to the last two. Chief of Detectives Gerard Gigante and Chief Medical Examiner Michael Caplan confirmed at the May 31 Suffolk County Legislature’s health committee meeting that if numbers remain low through June and July, Suffolk might see overdose deaths drop to 2015 levels — 260 total — compared to 2016 and 2017, where there were 362 and 359, respectively. “It feels like we’re making headway,” Gigante said. “Like we’re getting somewhere.” The total number of opioid deaths for this year is 120 as of May 1, which includes 78 cases still pending, in which the medical examiner could not yet attribute the overdose to causing the victim’s death. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 64,000 people nationwide died from drug overdoses in 2016. Caplan said Suffolk mirrors the national statistic that approximately 80 percent of all drug overdoses are caused by opioids. Gigante attributed the decrease to large-scale drug busts, like the arrest of six people involved in a Brookhaven-based drug ring in Middle Island in March. In the last few years the number of
overdoses involving prescription drugs has decreased, according to Caplan, while those involving illegal and nonprescription substances have increased. “ was the peak of where prescription medications like oxycodone were our biggest problem,” the medical examiner said. “We saw the trend going away from prescription opioids and to semisynthetic opioids like heroin and fentanyl.” Members of the health committee said the trend down is uplifting. “We’re amazed,” Legislator William
“Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport) said. “These numbers are nearly 10-fold less than previous years.” Gigante also spoke during the meeting about the department’s High Intensity Drug Tracking Area system, which maps overdose detections in real time for police officers out in the field. SCPD members can report the location, time and other details of an overdose, which is used to determine where to concentrate resources. The police department used the system to map 13 opioid overdoses Memorial Day
weekend, three of which were fatal. This is compared to last year’s Memorial Day weekend where nine of 40 reports resulted in a fatality. The numbers reflected in the statistics do not account for people who drive themselves to hospitals, but Gigante said he hopes to get medical institutions involved in reporting those numbers too. “If we can override June and July then we will really start to see the ratio decrease,” Gigante said. “I’m cautiously optimistic we can turn that corner.”
Sheriff’s office passing out free drug, alcohol testing kits BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM
‘This is a oncein-a-lifetime moment, but please be responsible in your actions.’
Local schools have long tried to curb drug and alcohol use at prom while still trying to ensure graduating classes celebrate the final days before graduation. Frank Pugliese said in his first year as principal of Shoreham-Wading River High School, he hopes his students can enjoy prom while staying safe. “We strongly advise all students to always make appropriate decisions,” Pugliese said in an email. “With that being said, we have great students. The vast majority make smart choices regardless of the policies in place, and we trust that they will continue to do so on prom night.” Smithtown High School West participates in the county District Attorney’s Office new Choices and Consequences program that shows the dangers of reckless and drunk driving. Members of the DA’s office will be in the high school June 18. In a letter to students, Smithtown West High School Principal John Coady said anyone caught drinking during prom will be suspended and kicked out. Prom tickets will not be refunded, and the student may be barred from the graduation ceremony. Fifty alcohol and 25 drug testing kits were sent out to numerous schools to kick off the program.

Students from Shoreham-Wading River High School’s Resources in Special Education program displayed a vast array of talents when visiting Wading River Elementary School for several autism awareness presentations. Along with high school special education teacher Caitlin Maher, the students shared their “superpowers” — from running, singing, drawing, acting and remembering birthdays — with third- and fourth-graders during physical education classes. “This is a great grade level to engage our community of students with acceptance and
to embrace the differences of others,” said Lynda Kranidis, special education teacher at Wading River Elementary School. The high school students helped younger ones develop a better understanding of autism through personal stories, musical skills and an interactive true or false game. “It’s encouraging to witness appreciation for our students,” Maher said. “They are truly valued for their unique talents and gifts.” Student James Hunt shared his drawing superpower, shown above. He also displayed a portrait of Maher he created.

Albert G. Prodell Middle School The Kindness Challenge started by the Student Council at Albert G. Prodell Middle School in the Shoreham-Wading River school district has evolved into a schoolwide showing of affection and concern for others. Under the leadership of school social worker Andrea Monz, students encouraged peers to embrace patience, self-confidence, hope, peace and humility with sticky notes left on every school locker with messages like “You are awesome,” “Stay strong” and “Work hard and you will reach your goals.” Caitlin Bolembach and Michele Vitale’s advisories also got into the spirit when they

Three students from Rocky Point High School and one from Shoreham-Wading River have been recognized as first-place winners in the Regional VI SkillsUSA competitions at Suffolk County Community College this past April. Seniors Brianna Davanzo and Emily Woznowski teamed up with two other top-achieving students from their nurse assistant class at Eastern Suffolk BOCES for the Health Knowledge Bowl. The Jeopardylike competition posed questions about academic achievements and safety. The competition also reinforced both students’ future goals of attending nursing school — Davanzo will head to St. Joseph’s College and Woznowski will attend Adelphi University in the fall. Mickey Gold, a junior, placed first in the pin-design competition for a piece he created that highlighted the event. His work featured “SkillsUSA Area VI Long Island ‘18” embossed over an outline of Long Island with the Montauk Lighthouse prominently featured. He also placed third in Advertising Design for his thumbnail versions of a logo, business cards and marketing materials for a fictional plumbing company. “This honor is evident of the hard work these students put into their career aspirations and serves as a foundation for their future successes,” Principal Susann Crossan said. “We are all proud of their collective expertise and achievements.”

Clockwise from left, Kayleigh Robinson stands atop the 400-meter hurdle podium; Kaitlyn Chandrika races toward the state finish line; and Sarah Connelly and Noreen Guilfoyle after last year’s state championship.
Robinson had mind set on winning states, and did Junior places first in 400-meter hurdles, sophomore Sarah Connelly third in 3,000, talks of senior influence and team’s positive attitude the meet with a similar attitude. The four-year varsity runner placed third in the 3,000 in 9:52.24 and ninth in the 1,500 in 4:36.52. Like a quote by R.S. Grey, Kayleigh “I couldn’t believe it,” Connelly said after Robinson believed she could, so she did. crossing the finish line. “I was satisfied and The Mount Sinai junior sprinter’s go-getter amazed. We all push each other to make attitude motivated her to a first-place finish in ourselves better and our success is all because the 400-meter hurdles at the state track and we work together. This team is so supportive.” field championships last weekend. Senior Noreen Guilfoyle is a big part of “Most people get nervous going into a Connelly’s support system, even referring to race, but when I go into a race, I think about her as “Mother Noreen.” Guilfoyle said she it as my race,” the five-year varsity standout remembers running side by side with the then said. “As you think about what you want, seventh-grader‚ recalling Connelly couldn’t what your goals are — take her eyes off her, not I’ve been training so hard looking forward for even throughout the season for a second. that race, and I was coming “I might take a little bit down the last 100, 50 meters of credit for it,” Guilfoyle and I saw the finish line said of Connelly’s success, was right there and I was laughing. “I’m so proud of confident. I knew I had to her. She’s done everything push myself as hard as I she’s told to do and I think could. Visualizing what you she has a great career ahead want for yourself helps you of her.” reach that result.” Connelly said Guilfoyle, She was ranked No. 2 in — Kayleigh Robinson a nine-time state medalist, the state, just half a second has helped her excel. behind first, and finished “I’m where I am today the June 9 race in 1 minute, 3.03 seconds because of her,” Connelly said. “She’s just in front of Bishop Loughlin’s Adia Palmer unbelievable; I marvel at her. I look up to her. (1:03.32). She said she would have been Whenever I had a negative attitude she tells happy with any result, laughing that clocking me to shut up and put a smile on my face.” in first though was a nice bonus. Robinson The sophomore has now taken her own was also on the 4×400 relay that placed teammate under her wing, freshman Kaitlyn eighth in Division II. Even running after Chandrika, who won the 2,000 steeplechase individual races, the quartet finished well at the division championships last month above its 9:27 time from the previous round and state qualifiers just over a week ago. She with a 4:07.84. finished ninth in the steeplechase and 22nd “I wanted to be a state champion, I had my in the 800 at the state meet. mind set, and I executed,” Robinson said. “But “I’ve tried to build her up,” Connelly said. as long as I know I tried my best, I’m happy “Hopefully I will be the next Noreen.” with whatever time I finish in, whether I win Guilfoyle hadn’t had a personal best in or lose.” quite some time, she said, and using her own Sophomore Sarah Connelly approached encouragement, preaching pace and positivity,

scored personal records in the same events Chandrika competed in, placing 15th in the steeplechase. “They’re the only team that if someone beats someone else, they turn around and say, ‘Thank you, you made me run faster,’” head coach Bill Dwyer said. “The younger kids wouldn’t be as good if they didn’t have good role models like they do in Noreen and the other seniors. But even I couldn’t have imagined them running that fast. People see all this talent, but it’s basically hard work that gets them there.” Guilfoyle, Connelly, Chandrika and sophomore Isabella DiPalermo finished 10th in the 4×800. Senior Ebelyn Harriman finished 23rd overall among Division II schools in the pentathlon, and Miller Place senior Jillian Patterson finished eighth among all schools. She finished the 800 portion first in 2:21.29 and racked up 3,150 points overall. For the boys, Mount Sinai junior Kenneth
Wei finished second in the 110 hurdles for Division II runners in 14.51 and sixth overall. His younger brother Justin, a sophomore, came in 14th in the pentathlon, crossing the finish line fourth in the high jump, seventh in the 110 hurdles and 10th in the 1,500. Guilfoyle said her motto has been “one bad race doesn’t define an entire career,” adding going against the best-of-the-best in the state has only helped. She said being on the top team on Long Island during the winter and cross country track seasons and going undefeated for the second year in a row in the spring and winning the county championship has its added benefits. “It helps you push yourself harder than you would before,” Guilfoyle said of competing on the big stage. “I’ve always aimed to be the best example I can be. For them to look up to me and instill the things I’ve taught them is really rewarding. I feel I’ve made an impact on their lives, and they’ve made an impact on mine.”
