After 15 years, families can still pay a visit to Postman Pete at the Miller Place-Mount Sinai Historical Society. Residents lined up with their kids to deliver letters to Santa on Sunday at the old Miller Place Post Office. After dropping off their letters, children could get cookies and hot apple cider inside the William Miller House and participate in a raffle to win various prizes. Local high school students took the lead on caroling in light of the holidays. Vice President of the historical society, Ann Donato, said more than 300 children registered for Sunday’s event.

Miller Place man honored for charitable efforts Friends of Karen recognize Richard Panico at LI gala

‘[Richard Panico] is the kindest most generous father, husband and friend to all.’

By Giselle Barkley

Richard Panico is a behind-the-scenes kind of guy. So it took some convincing when Friends of Karen wanted to honor Panico, a Miller Place resident, for his charitable nature during its third annual Long Island Gala on Friday, Dec. 4, at the Stonebridge Country Club in Smithtown. The organization’s regional director, Nancy Mariano, approached Panico earlier this year, asking to spotlight him at the event. Initially, he wasn’t thrilled with the idea. “I read this somewhere [that] if more than one person knows you did a good deed, it’s no longer a good deed,” Panico said. “So … to me it’s just not necessary to have that kind of ego.” Panico got involved with Friends of Karen three years ago when he purchased the building on Perry Street in Port Jefferson out of which the organization operates. Currently, Panico’s company Symbio, which provides clinical trial management services for pharmaceutical companies, and Friends of Karen share the building. He turned his

efforts toward helping the organization, which aims to offer emotional and financial support to families of children with life-threatening illnesses, but his efforts didn’t start with Friends of Karen. In 2003, one year after Panico’s company was established, he kickstarted its annual bike-a-thon at Heritage Park in Mount Sinai to help raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. It held the fundraiser for seven years and

raised more than $50,000. “It was good for the company,” said Susan Swamback, an employee of Symbio. “It was good for all of us to feel like a team. … He loves that.” Swamback also helped with the annual bike-a-thon, but the fundraising stopped after the company didn’t raise as much money as it had hoped, despite its efforts. Over the past few years, Panico has donated skin creams to families that

frequent hospitals and helped one child and his family attend a New York Mets baseball game. Panico’s nephew Tom McGuire added that his uncle also tries to help his family and friends. During the gala, Mariano said Panico “is the kindest most generous father, husband and friend to all.” Mariano added that the organization was proud to acknowledge Panico at the event. While the gala was a means to highlight people like Panico, it also helps Friends of Karen raise awareness and money to further its mission. In the organization’s 37 years, it’s helped around 5,500 sick children and their families. Panico said the organization works hard to achieve its goal and even continued his own effort to help the organization during his honoree speech. “If you are able to donate — if you’re able to buy raffle tickets, if you’re able to [participate] in the silent auctions, that would be fantastic,” Panico said during the gala. “If you can’t … tell your friends, spread the word.”

Once they lit the tree, children and their parents could line up to sit on Santa’s lap, take photos and tell Santa what they want for Christmas. Community members could also grab cookies, cupcakes and hot chocolate.

Town purchases blighted Oxygen Bar in Rocky Point By Giselle Barkley

Rocky Point may soon have one less eyesore in its downtown business district. After four years, Councilwoman Jane Bonner (C-Rocky Point) said the town finalized its purchase of Rocky Point’s Oxygen Bar property. The Town of Brookhaven acquired the land for $525,000 — a sum $275,000 less than the property owner’s asking price. On May 9, 2011, the town shut down the business after four people were involved in a non-fatal shooting on the premises. The bar’s Place of Assembly permit, which allows people to gather and conduct activities at the location, also expired. For several years, the owner of the Oxygen Bar property rented the establishment to various operators and promoters. Cafe Brianna was one of many businesses that used the establishment before the Oxygen Bar, but that eventually closed due to limited parking. When the bar came into town, initially the CVS across the street allowed cars from the neighboring business to park in its parking lot, but that agreement changed after the shooting. As the area strayed from a familyfriendly location, the town hoped purchasing the property would help revitalize the area — something Bonner started working on before she got into office.

According to Bonner, the bar’s poor business plan contributed to its failure in the business district. “It’s one thing to always have a dream,” Bonner said. “It’s another thing to meet and discuss your business plan.” The bar owners held wet T-shirt con-

tests, gentlemen’s nights and other events to attract residents to the premises, but their attempts were unsuccessful. Since the bar closed in 2011, the property has remained vacant. Now, the town may demolish the building before spring. The plan is to

The 69-year-old editor and president of the Sound Beach Civic Association has lived in Sound Beach for more than 30 years, and her impact on the area is not only seen upon entering the hamlet but also felt far and wide. Ruberto helped with the replacement of the Welcome to Sound Beach sign, organized and managed the Celebrate Sound Beach weekend, conducted successful Hamlet-wide garage sale, expanded the civic’s bimonthly newsletter, hosted the annual Pet Adopt-A-Thon for Brookhaven residents and chaired the annual scholarship fund food fair and silent auction, which raised and awarded $14,000 to local students. She also helped add an extra bus stop that takes commuters into Port Jefferson, to make the last morning train into

the city. But what Ruberto said she is most proud of, though, is how she obtained grant applications to secure funds to improve the pedestrian walkway on Echo Avenue — a project that is near completion. “I’m elated about the whole thing — it needed to be revitalized,” Ruberto said of the road. “The town has been very receptive to making changes along the way as needed and they did a fantastic job.” Ruberto said she first approached Bonner with the problem when she saw a photo that showed a bus moving into the middle of the road while a runner raced alongside a wooded area. Bonner said it’s been a pleasure working alongside Ruberto. “She’s got a heart the size of Texas, cares passionately about Sound Beach and her role as a civic leader and is one of their most wonderful advocates,” she said. “She’s very forward-thinking; she’s patient; she understands. She’s one of those people that got put on Earth to help people, and she does a great job.” Dan Losquadro, the highway superintendent for the Town of Brookhaven, has worked on various projects with Ruberto over the last several years and said she’s also been a driving force to get things done. “Bea is someone that is passionate about her community,” he said. “Sometimes you meet people who don’t understand the work that goes into these projects or the time constraints and budget limits, but Bea has been someone who is always very understanding and easy to work with, but is also persistent. She never gives up on an issue.” Mimi Hodges, a 58-year-old resident who grew up in Sound Beach, said Ruberto engaged her right away when she arrived to the area, helping her get involved in the civic — where she got to see the kinds of

things Ruberto does, however obvious or subtle they may be. “I’m just a little person who’s so impressed — the fact that she juggles all of this is amazing to me and she has so much energy and to be able to do what she does is remarkable,” she said. “She has a warmth and a generosity to her that I haven’t seen since I was a child, honestly. I say that with no hesitation.” What she also liked, she said, is how Ruberto was able to make changes that enhanced and bettered the community, while maintaining its old hamlet charm that it had when she was a child. The passion Ruberto has for Sound Beach was also recognized by state Sen. Ken LaValle (R-Port Jefferson), who honored Ruberto as

his Woman of Distinction in 2014. Charlotte Fritts, the 65-year-old secretary for the civic for the last four years, said she has seen how tirelessly Ruberto works for the community and also said that the way Ruberto handles issues is appreciated by both the Sound Beach residents and the political figures that govern it. “When she feels that a project is good for the community, she holds on to it, works with it in a very nice way and has established a great rapport with representatives in Brookhaven town,” she said. “She doesn’t just go to them with problems, but researches to bring various solutions to that problem, which makes it nice for them because then they have something to work with.” MOVERS & SHAKERS continued on page A12

Narcan training classes are coming up

Want to learn how to use Narcan, the medication that stops an opioid overdose in its tracks? Training courses are taking place across Suffolk County over the next couple of months, including in Port Jefferson and in neighboring Centereach. Narcan, the brand name of naloxone, blocks receptors in the brain to stop overdoses of drugs like heroin, Vicodin, Percocet, OxyContin or Demerol, among others. It can be administered through a nasal spray and will not cause harm if mistakenly given to someone who is not suffering an opioid overdose. The local training sessions meet state health requirements, according to the Suffolk County Department of Health Services, and will teach trainees to recognize opioid overdoses, to administer Narcan and to take other steps until emergency medical personnel arrive on the scene. All participants will receive a certificate of completion and an emergency kit that includes Narcan. The first course will be held on Monday, Dec. 14, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the county’s Office of Health Education in Hauppauge, at 725 Veterans Highway, Building C928. RSVP to 631-853-4017 or wanda.ortiz@suffolkcountyny.gov.

With this change of season, isn’t it time to pre-plan? File photo by Rohma Abbas

A Narcan kit includes the medication, a syringe and an atomizer for spraying it into the nose.

In Centereach, a course will take place on Friday, Jan. 15, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Middle Country library at 101 Eastwood Blvd. RSVP before Jan. 11 at alonsobarbara@middlecountrylibrary.org or at 631-585-9393 ext. 213. Later that month, Hope House Ministries will host another Narcan training session in its facility at 1 High St. in Port Jefferson, in the Sister Aimee Room. That event, held in conjunction with the Port Jefferson ambulance company, will take place on Thursday, Jan. 28, at 10 a.m. Call 631-928-2377 for more information or register at http://tinyurl.com/ppz3r4v.

Rocky Point Eagles get grounded by Comsewogue Girls’ BasketBall

Comsewogue . . . . . . 43 Rocky Point . . . . . . . 22 By Bill landon

Behind Nora Gabel’s 23 points and eight steals, the Comsewogue girls’ basketball team led coast-to-coast in Tuesday’s League V opener on the road at Rocky Point, turning a 9-4 lead after one quarter to a 43-22 victory. Comsewogue controlled the tempo from tipoff, dominated the time of possession and hit the scoreboard over and over. By halftime, the Warriors battled their way up to a 20-8 lead, but Comsewogue head coach Joe Caltagirone said he knew Rocky Point would be athletic, despite not knowing how they’d be offensively. “They put a little ball pressure on us and they contested all of our shots,” Caltagirone said of Rocky Point, adding he was pleased with how his team played defensively. “Offensively, I think we have a little ways to go to get to where I want to be this season.” Despite several turnovers in the first half, the Warriors got their rhythm in the second as the team found the rim. Gabel, a sophomore guard, lit up the scoreboard for Comsewogue with 11 points, which included a pair of three-pointers. Rocky Point senior forward Julia Jauhiainen scored all of her five points in the third quarter, as her team trailed 33-13. With 5:52 left in the game, Comsewogue worked to unwind the clock, and the teams traded points as time expired. Gabel, who nailed three treys on the

evening, said that she was surprised by the margin of victory. “In the huddle before the game, I said we have to be hungrier than they were,” Gabel said. “So we went out there and played our hardest, and we left it all out on the court.” Following Gabel for the Warriors was junior guard Megan Turner with seven points, and forwards Sam Collins, a junior, and Victoria Blaney, a sophomore, chipped in four points apiece. “They’re a strong team, but I don’t think we played up to our standards,” Turner said. “Defensively we’re strong, but our offense needs a little work.” Rocky Point senior guard Michaela Peacock and junior center Allyson Greenstein matched Jauhiainen with five points each. Rocky Point head coach Scott Lindsay said Comsewogue is always a tough team to play because they’re physical and have two strong guards. “They play a strong defense up top, which caused a little problem when they started pressing,” Lindsay said. “With our second group, I was really impressed with how they were moving the ball. We’re improving from game to game — they played hard the whole way and I think we’re building on something here.” Comsewogue will host Harborfields in its first home game of the season, today, while Rocky Point will host Westhampton. A 5:45 p.m. tipoff is scheduled for both games.

Mount Sinai trots for Holiday Magic

For the fifth consecutive year, all 10 Rocky Point fall varsity sports teams earned the distinction of being named a New York State Public High School Athletic Association Scholar-Athlete Team. “This is not an easy feat, and to do it five times in a row is a record for our school,” athletic director Amy Agnesini

On Nov. 28, Councilwoman Jane Bonner (C-Rocky Point) was on hand to encourage participants and distribute awards at the 5th Annual Mount Sinai Turkey Trot, hosted by the Mount Sinai Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD) Club. The annual trot raises money for Holiday Magic, a not-for-profit organization that dedicates itself to making the holidays special for less fortunate children and their families. The Mount Sinai SADD Club purchased holiday gifts for 67 children, largely as a result of the participation at the annual 5K event. “It was a beautiful day for a trot and I commend all those who participated and volunteered, especially the students from SADD,” Bonner said. “The holiday season is a difficult time for some families, but through the generosity of those who made donations, so many children will enjoy a Merry Christmas this year.” On Dec. 3, with over $7,000 in cash

said. “Everyone in the district should take pride in this award because everyone contributes to the success of our athletes in the classroom.” This award recognizes teams that possess an unweighted composite grade point average of 90 percent or higher and meet state guidelines.

You gave me the divine gift to forgive and forget all evil against me, and that in all instances of my life, you are with me. I want in this short prayer to thank you for all things as you confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you in eternal glory. Thank you for your mercy toward me and mine. M.A.D.

EDITORIAL

The gift of caring It’s easy to get wrapped up in the chaos of shopping for holiday gifts during the December rush. Most of us are trying to get in and out of stores and malls as quickly as possible, but staying a little bit longer could go a long way this holiday season if we all make an effort to buy just one more present. It doesn’t have to be a big one, like a video game console — although we’re sure nobody would mind that — but we could all buy just one more gift and donate it to a child in need through a local church or charity. There are kids whose parents simply cannot afford gifts, or live in domestic violence shelters, or don’t have parents at all. Those kids deserve a little happiness, too, to know that they are part of a community and that there are other people out there who care about them. We could also consider donating a gift to a hospital or a nursing home, where there could sometimes be people without family to remember them during the holidays. Our newspaper told a story this week about a 22-year-old woman from Setauket who spent the last month raising money to buy holiday gifts for underprivileged teenagers. Her name is Hailey Del Giorno and she works at Little Flower Children and Family Services (631-929-6200) in Wading River. She is an only child and grew up reaping the bounty of the Christmas morning loot. But that did not deter her from reaching out to those who may be less fortunate, and she has already raised close to $2,000 to provide presents to teenagers she works with at the nonprofit organization. We also see many local schools raising money to donate toys to those who are less fortunate. The Students Against Drunk Driving club at Mount Sinai raised money for Holiday Magic (631-265-7200), a not-for-profit organization that dedicates itself to making the holidays special for less fortunate children and their families. The club raised more than $7,000 and went shopping at Walmart and the Smith Haven Mall to purchase gifts for 67 children. We, too, could look beyond ourselves and make our community better this holiday season. There are strangers all around us who need a friend. Let’s make a difference in one of their lives during the season of giving.

Protect mute swans

To The ediTor: We are appalled by Governor Andrew Cuomo’s veto, on Nov. 13, of two bills requesting a moratorium on the Department of Environmental Conservation’s plan for mute swan management. These bills had passed by overwhelming bipartisan majorities in both State chambers. Make no mistake about it: the DEC management plan for mute swans is lethal. In claiming, the plan called mainly for nonlethal measures of control. Governor Cuomo either did not read the plan himself, or was misinformed. The estimated 2,200 mute swans in New York State will be reduced to a mere 800, with approximately 400 out of 1,600 left on Long Island. We commented extensively to the DEC, to the Governor’s office, and to Audubon New York for the last two years, itemizing, line-for-line, deficiencies and discrepancies in both the original and revised plans. The DEC failed on every count to answer our questions. Among other items, we cited a lack of scientific evidence, inconsistencies in stated goals, outdated population counts, bias in decision-making and problematic management schemes. We asked for inclusion in DEC’s stakeholders’ meetings; we did not get it. One of the most glaring

problems in the DEC management plan is that all adult mute swans must be under municipal or private management, yet the plan fails to provide jurisdiction of swans living along the tidal coastlines of either Long Island or the NYC metropolitan areas. How will these swans, which swim across municipal lines, be claimed for management? Or will this point be moot, as they will be among the 1,200 shot? Afterall, these swans are not contained, as the plan requires, in parks and lakes. As for the others in our local lakes and parks? These swans must be managed. Groups or private individuals will have to come forward and apply to DEC for this task. How will the public react, however, when they realize that management requires wing-clipping? The only adult mute swans we get to view will be intentionally maimed, through surgical removal of at least one of their wings. What kind of management model is this? Imagine observing a maimed swan attempting to fly across Setauket Mill Pond with half a wing? What message does this form of animal cruelty send to our impressionable children? In addition, all eggs will be addled [shaken], or oiled, so there will no more cygnets, or young swans, in any location. What a lost opportunity to provide this easily observable window into the natural world! How unfortunate that children, families,

and adults throughout New York will be denied this opportunity to observe the marvels of a mute swan with her young! By vetoing the bills, Governor Cuomo ignored the scientific evidence of no-harm by these animals. He also ignored his learned legislators, including our own state senator Kenneth LaValle, and state assemblyman Steve Englebright, chairperson of the assembly’s Committee on Environmental Conservation, both of whom voted in favor of a moratorium. Instead, Governor Cuomo bowed to the pressures of a few upstate individuals with an agenda of removing mute swans so that they can make room for northern species of trumpeter and tundra swans [both of which are non-nesters in NYS, and infrequently seen on Long Island]. These two species are considered trophy birds when hunted, and we predict they will be soon on the DEC’s seasonal list of hunted waterfowl. Governor Cuomo has made his position clear on mute swans. Like the DEC, his priority is to provide harvestable animals, rather than to ensure other means of wildlife enjoyment for the residents of New York.

Trying to see the good in all God’s children

D. None of the above by DaNiel DuNaief

vtimes@tbrnewspapers.com

I

s there divine in all of us, or only in the people who share our religion? If your God, my God, anyone’s God, created the Earth and all the people, animals and planets on it, then does She want those who are true believers to annihilate and destroy the other people She created because they don’t believe in Her? What? You don’t think God could be female? That’s a topic

for another column. Recently, I read about a charitable act. At the end of the article, I saw that people were commenting about how that charity could only come from someone of their religion — I’m not going to indicate what religion it was. The commentors were convinced that it couldn’t have come from someone who followed a different religious discipline. Why? If there are elements to ourselves that are a combination of destroyers and builders, lovers and haters, sinners and saints, why should something extraordinary or even inspirational be limited to one religion? Couldn’t everyone’s God speak through or act through one person, regardless of his background or religion, to inspire others to greater heights, to do something incredibly beneficial to his or her fellow human beings without selecting only those people who go to the right building, speak the right language and follow the right

religious practices? Maybe we need to close our eyes to see the divine in everyone. Religion has this way of bringing out the best in us and, at times, the worst. We sometimes feel that we’ve received some message from a divine being who tells us that we must right the wrongs of people who are outside our religous group. Centuries after the Crusades, humans still resort to weapons to make our point with those who have other religious beliefs. I understand the fear, especially in an era when every politician with national aspirations describes a boogeyman (or woman). I also understand the reality that there are people bent on destroying us and that we can’t go naively into that good night, imagining we live in a utopian world where we can ignore threats. It’s real and it dominates the headlines every day. This isn’t about the extreme cases, where we have to be

vigilant against killers who, for whatever reason, feel they are doing something important in their lives by killing others before dying. That doesn’t seem like much of a way to honor anyone’s God. This is about the way we relate to each other and the way we think of religious groups outside our own. Why should something spectacular or incredible have to originate from the mind or heart of someone from our religion? Turning this around, do you like everyone in your church, temple or mosque? Do you routinely sit during services and feel a universal kindred spirit with everyone in that room that you don’t feel with the people in your child’s classroom at school, at your daughter’s ballet recital or at a concert where the music seems to echo around the room long after our kids have stopped strumming? Would you randomly pick a name out of the hat at your

Do you like everyone in your church, temple or mosque?

house of worship and be equally thrilled to host any of those people in your home for a week, a night or even a long dinner? Religion can offer us a chance to see and imagine that the best is yet to come in anyone around us. We don’t have to give up our own religion and it doesn’t lessen our religion to believe that something spectacular lies just beneath the surface of another person passing by us, even if that person doesn’t share our religion. If we are all God’s children, wouldn’t She (or He) want us to put more effort into getting along with our siblings?

Delightful seasonal and cultural events to savor

between you and me by leah S. DuNaief

vtimes@tbrnewspapers.com

T

his past weekend started for me with a stellar performance, as usual, by the Emerson String Quartet at the Staller Center on the Stony Brook University campus. This marvelous string ensemble comes to us directly from Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center or at any given time, from other musical capitals in the world. They are, incredibly for us, in residence at Stony Brook and as part of the deal struck with SBU past president, Shirley Kenny, they give four performances a year here. The quartet features Eugene

Drucker and Philip Setzer, who alternate at first and second violin, Lawrence Dutton on the viola, and now Paul Watkins, who replaced David Finckel in 2013, playing the cello. The original group formed when they were students at Juilliard, then turned professional in 1976, and in the course of their career they have released more than 30 albums and won nine Grammys along with the prestigious Avery Fisher Prize. They were inducted into the Classical Music Hall of Fame in 2010. Friday night, they played two selections by Haydn and two by Beethoven. Attending their concerts is made even more delightful for not having to drive more than a few minutes from door to door and being assured of convenient and free parking upon arrival. The audience routinely gives them a standing ovation. Moving onto the next day, three friends and I joined up to view the 37th annual Candlelight House Tour, traditionally held on Friday evenings and Saturday daytimes, and made possible as a fundraiser by the hard work of the Three Village Historical Society. Members

take care of the myriad of details from selecting to decorating the homes, along with professional help made possible by local contributions. Each year homeowners graciously allow hundreds of visitors to traipse through their rooms, checking out the decor and listening to the history explained many times over during the day by society members and helpers. This year the homes were centered in Old Stony Brook, and the weather cooperated magnificently. Many of us well remember in past years waiting in line to enter the homes in subfreezing, or snowy, or rainy or sharply windy days. Sunny Saturday was a Goldilocks day for touring: not too cold, not too hot, just right. And if house tours are your thing, the Port Jefferson Chamber of Commerce has worked hard to organize the Lantern Light House Tour, this year centered in Harbor Hills. Also a fundraiser, the event is scheduled for this Saturday, Dec. 12, from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Like the one in Three Village, the tour is very much a community effort with generous contributions of time and financial backing.

As if this weren’t enough activity for a satisfying weekend, we enjoyed the lighting of the splendid Christmas tree on the Stony Brook Village Green, sponsored as usual, by The Ward Melville Heritage Organization Sunday night. WMHO has been happily celebrating its 75th anniversary throughout this past year. On Jan. 19, there will be a special anniversary commemoration of the night Ward Melville hosted a dinner at the Three Village Inn for the owners of the sundry shops and unveiled his plans for the first shopping mall in America, a crescent village on the hill overlooking Stony Brook Harbor. After much good food and drink, the shop owners agreed to join the effort. The result was the picturesque Stony Brook Village Center, designed by architect Richard Haviland Smythe that we enjoy now, three quarters of a century later. The ongoing vibrancy of the village was further illustrated by the ribbon-cutting party later that evening at the site of the latest business to join the Stony Brook shopping center. Blue Salon & Spa, formerly Legends, welcomed

guests, who devoured delicious hors d’oeuvres provided by owner, Cathy Hansen, in her newly renovated salon. It was a symbolic end to the evening’s festivities. Meanwhile in the other direction, Port Jefferson Village offered the Dickens festival last Saturday and Sunday for the 20th year. Originally the brainchild of former mayor, Jeanne Garant, churches, schools, the theater, stores and restaurants all joined together to transform the village into a Dickensian wonderland, replete with 19th century characters walking the streets and engaging the public. (And throughout December you may stop at Santa’s Workshop, a brilliant creation of the talented Pat Darling.) Encouraged by the wonderful weather, visitors came out in droves to the festival, putting Port Jefferson on the map as the glorious destination village that it is.
