Episcopal bishop plans visit to church July 1 to dedicate plaques
Two Eagle Scouts will be honored for their work at a Stony Brook church where a renowned architect is also recognized. When Episcopal Bishop Geralyn “Gerry” Wolf visits All Souls July 1, she will dedicate two new plaques outside the church to recognize the contributions of Eagle Scouts Miles Laffitte and Patrick Skidmore. There are several plaques that can be found at the church, including one for Stanford White — the legendary architect who designed All Souls — and one from the U.S. Department of the Interior designating All Souls as a national landmark. Laffitte built a reflective garden next to the church in 2011. He said he chose All Souls church because of its special place in his heart, adding “my parents were married there almost 27 years ago.” He said his Eagle Project taught him that even small projects take a large amount of organizing, scheduling flexibility and logistical planning. After completing the garden, Laffitte graduated from the University of North Dakota with a bachelor’s in commercial aviation, became a certified flight instructor and was commissioned a second lieutenant. He will graduate from the U.S. Army flight school in Fort Rucker, Alabama, July 3. “I feel honored, and humbled by the plaque, knowing my name is now a part of such a special place as All Souls,” Laffitte said. Skidmore constructed a new fence for the long walkway leading up the hill from Main Street to the church in 2015. He said he chose All Souls because he grew up there. “I am very thankful I got to attend this church, and that I was able to give back to the church that helped me shape my values to become a better person,” Skidmore said.
Reflecting back on his Eagle Project, Skidmore said he learned a great deal about management — being organized, learning how to work with others, as well as patience. After the project, he graduated from Suffolk County Community College with an associate in science business administration degree and is currently attending Baruch College in Manhattan, majoring in finance and investments. He plans to graduate in May 2019. “I am honored that the church I grew up knowing and attending decided to recognize my Eagle Scout Project with a plaque,” Skidmore said. — RITA J. EGAN

TBR News Media event raises funds for internship BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM
RITA J. EGAN
Sometimes one gets by with a little help from their friends, or in other cases, book lovers, foodies and wine aficionados. Times Beacon Record News Media hosted the Cooks, Books & Corks Fundraiser at The Bates House in Setauket June 12. Attendees had the opportunity to sample a variety of dishes from restaurants and caterers from across the North Shore, meet local authors and sample wines from Whisper Vineyards. The proceeds raised from the event will underwrite a summer internship with TBR News Media for a student from Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism. Howard Schneider, founding dean of SBU’s School of Journalism, talked to the audience about the importance of the summer internship and journalism in today’s world. He referenced a recent Gallup poll where 60 percent of Americans said it’s difficult to decide what’s true, and they are overwhelmed by the information and misinformation they read. “So, I tell you this because the fundraising portion of this dinner is to support a young journalist who will work with the Times Beacon Record newspapers, who will learn their craft and also do some important local journalism,” he said. “Because good journalism is not only about Albany and Washington, it’s about holding our local officials accountable for how they spend our money; it’s about whether we’re drinking safe water here in this community; it’s about whether our children are safe in school. And we need good journalists on the ground, starting here, to do that.” The event featured keynote speakers
Carl Safina and chef Guy Reuge. Safina, the first endowed professor for nature and humanities at SBU, has written several books about what he calls the nonhuman world. Reuge, owner of Mirabelle Restaurant in Stony Brook, recently penned the book, “A Chef’s Odyssey.” Safina read an excerpt from his most recent book “Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel,” a piece he said he picked to honor Father’s Day. He said part of the book is about wolves, which he said are very instructive. Reuge spoke to the audience about the process of writing and publishing his book with his wife’s uncle Philip Palmedo, which he said was rewarding in many ways. “It was easy,” he said about the writing. “It took about seven or eight months to do. It really wasn’t that difficult.” He said the recipes were tricky though, because one has to be precise, and he wanted to make sure he included some from his restaurant. One of the authors who had a table at the event was TBR News Media proofreader John Broven. He said he appreciated the opportunity to chat with potential readers and listening to the speakers. “It was a privilege to be a part of such a harmonious evening for an excellent cause,” he said. “Howard Schneider’s stirring speech in defense of real journalism was appropriately thought-provoking during the fundraiser.” Publisher Leah Dunaief said TBR News Media looks forward to the second Cooks, Books & Corks next year. The event was coordinated by Evelyn Costello and sponsored by Michael Ardolino, The Bates House and Simple Party Designs. For more photos, visit www.tbrnewsmedia.com.

Maker Faire wows attendees in Port Jeff BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM
People arriving to this year’s Eastern Long Island Mini Maker Faire in Port Jefferson June 9 were greeted by robed Jedis from the Long Island Saber Guild flourishing their lightsabers and a trueto-scale Hulkbuster costume as if straight from the screen of the recent “Avengers: Infinity War” movie. It was just the start to a day filled with the strange and the unique as makers from all across Long Island and beyond showed off their inventions and skills to interested guests. The annual event, hosted by the nonprofit Long Island Explorium, is a celebration of doers, dabblers or anybody who uses their own sweat, blood and tears to create or build something, even if it’s a little off the wall. New to this year’s fair was the Long Island Vegetable Orchestra, which used hollowed out carrots, gourds and cucumbers to play songs, such as the Beatles’ hit “Hey Jude.” Several robotics teams from high

New York State Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket) presented the Explorium with a resolution commending its work in producing the event. At the same time three volunteers who worked with the Explorium on the event received the Presidential Volunteer Service Award for their work in the Explorium’s museum. One of those young men, fourth-grader Greyson West, received the bronze reward for working between 26 and 49 hours at the museum. “We earned the award by our age group and how many hours we participated in volunteering at the museum,” Greyson said. “It feels pretty good to receive it.” An organizer of the event commended Greyson’s hard work. “They work with the children, they worked with the community,” Carole Van-Duyn, the Explorium’s museum program director said. “Our volunteers taught and engaged with the kids in several events and Greyson helped make it a great experience.”

PHOTOS FROM CANDIDATES
Poquott mayor, trustee candidates discuss dock, other issues BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM As residents prepare to vote in the Village of Poquott June 19, candidates still see a proposed dock and communication among the village’s biggest issues. Incumbent Dee Parrish is running for a third term as mayor on the Future ticket along with current trustees William Poupis and Chris Schleider. Both were appointed by the mayor in 2017 after former trustees, Michael Schaefer and John Mastauskas, resigned. Sitting board member John Richardson is challenging Parrish for mayor and is running on the We the People ticket along with trustee candidates, Felicia Chillak and Dianna Padilla. Parrish, an accountant, said she has not raised village taxes for the last three years. When she entered office in 2014, she said there was $86,000 in the village’s account and now there is nearly $154,000, a savings the board accomplished while improving village parks, roads and drainage. “I actually ran the village for the last three years like a business, because [my husband and I] have our own business, because that’s what really needed to be done to keep us on track on the budget, to keep spending to finally doing things cheaper,” she said, adding her family owns an environmental consulting company. Richardson, a New York City firefighter, said his reason for running for mayor this year is the same reason he ran for trustee in 2017 — he feels residents cannot speak freely at public hearings. “I feel that people should have more say in what’s going on,” he said. “I know we elect our officials to make decisions for us. But if people are griping about it … and they’re not being heard, maybe there’s more to it.” Chillak, a realtor, and Padilla, a Stony Brook University ecology professor, want residents to feel comfortable speaking up, something they feel some villagers are hesitant to do. One issue they say needs more community input is the proposed community dock. Parrish, who is in favor of the dock, said due to bids coming in at more than the $150,000 originally expected, the board is holding off on a vote. She said the idea of a dock developed from a simple pier, where people could fish and dock boats, to a bigger project due to the village having to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act and required lighting.
Top row, incumbents William Poupis and Chris Schleider along with Felicia Chillak and Dianna Padilla are vying for two trustees seats in the Village of Poquott June 19 election. Above, current mayor Dee Parrish is being challenged by sitting trustee John Richardson. “We have to look at everything before we decide how this is going to impact residents in the future,” Parrish said, adding she will be affected by the decision too. Richardson, Chillak and Padilla said the dock should be put to a referendum, so residents can vote on it instead of the board making the decision. “I believe everybody should have a voice, whether you agree with me or don’t agree with me let’s talk about it,” Chillak said. Both Schleider, a teacher, and Poupis, vice president of operations for a nationwide drilling company, said they feel the board is open to residents comments on the docks and other issues. Poupis said he hopes to put a procedure in place to make it even easier for them. “I just wish for every complaint [that] you had three potential ways to repair it,” the current trustee said he asks critics. While Padilla said she believes residents should have more input when it comes to a dock, she is against it. The challenger said it can be environmentally damaging, including disrupting living creatures at the bottom of the water during installation and its shade negatively impacting fish and shellfish. “There is no need for this dock,” she said. “There are nearby docks that people can use. This is not going to be a place where
people can tie up their boats. It will be for loading and unloading only.” All three challengers also have concerns as to whether or not the dock is financially responsible, especially with the board considering taking $34,000 from the village’s fund balance for the first installment of a five-year note. “I’m not saying the dock is not an option,” Chillak said. “I’m saying let the people decide, and we will openly discuss.” Schleider, who said he became trustee to show his kids the importance of civic responsibility, is in favor of the community dock. “I think that the village hasn’t spent money on something like this in a long time,” he said “It’s nice to have a centerpiece for the village to utilize.” Poupis said the dock would draw more people to the village and possibly increase real estate values. “It’s being able to look at the village and trying to project out where it’s going to be in five or 10 years,” he said. “That’s where you really separate someone who is just sitting in the mayor’s chair versus someone who is actively looking at the growth of the village.” The We the People ticket said many who have spoken out against the board have received code violations. While they don’t deny that violations exist in village homes,
some infractions are similar to neighbors who haven’t been reported. Parrish said the building department, code enforcement, public works and the board meet every week. The mayor said any complaints the village clerk receives from residents are given to code enforcement, which inspects the problem and decides what to do. Parrish said everyone is given an appropriate amount of time to address the issue. Richardson said he was targeted after running for trustee last year. When he applied to renew a permit to work on his balcony, he said he received it and then the permit was rescinded by the village attorney. He said he needed an extension because once he started working on the balcony it needed more work than anticipated. He alleged code enforcement is unfairly cracking down on people. While he believes there are issues that need to be addressed, he feels there is overregulation, and the village should reach out to residents before penalizing them to fully understand what is going on. “There’s always a different side to every story,” he said about reaching out to potential code violators. “I think in a village with only 357 households we have the capacity to do that as a village and a community.” Parrish said when Richardson asked for an extension to continue working on his balcony, the village court discovered he never closed out a 2003 permit for a second floor on his home and therefore he doesn’t have a current certificate of occupancy. Richardson said the building inspector approved and signed off on his CO April 20, and he is waiting for the village to approve it. All the candidates are in agreement that improvements need to be made to Walnut Beach. Parrish said they are cleaning the beach up and are thinking of bringing in sand to replenish it. Padilla said replenishing the beach with sand may not be the answer as it’s environmentally unsound because dredge spoils can smother anything alive underneath it. Incumbent Schleider said the beach brings back many happy memories for his in-laws, and he hopes the spot will be preserved for his children to visit one day. “It’s one of the things I am most passionate about is maintaining that shoreline we have,” he said. The Village of Poquott will hold its annual election Tuesday, June 19, at Village Hall, located at 45 Birchwood Ave. The polls will be open from noon to 9 p.m.

VILLAGE EMMA S. CLARK MEMORIAL LIBRARY
Emma S. Clark Memorial Library offers incentives for children to read with its Summer Reading Club, including a reusable book bag.
Summer reading for kids has a new look at Emma Clark Library
“Libraries Rock!” is the theme for the 2018 Summer Reading Club at the Emma S. Clark Memorial Library, and this year the program will feature a new online look. The children’s Summer Reading Club includes reading and related activities in summer family time. It also helps to avoid the “summer slide,” which is the tendency for students who don’t read over the summer to forget or lose some of what they’ve learned by the fall. For those who are not yet reading, when an adult reads to the child, it builds vocabulary, imagination and teaches about the world around them. The new, user-friendly online tool to keep track of what your child reads this summer is called Beanstack. Besides acting as an online book log, there are other benefits to tracking books on this system, such as weekly book recommendations linked to the library catalog, which are tailored to the child’s age, reading level and interests. When the child logs in his or her books read, he or she will receive colorful electronic badges and be notified of prizes earned. Parents and children will also be able to view themed booklists on topics of interest ranging from Exploring Egypt to Say No to Bullying! Kids will also have the option to write book reviews and read learning tips and activities for each book selected. Kids from birth to sixth-graders are invited to join SRC by registering online right from the library’s home page, www.emmaclark. org, or in-person in the Children’s Department. After registering, children will receive a new, sturdy reusable book bag while supplies last. Registration is ongoing throughout the summer and does not have to be done by a certain date. Starting Monday, June 25, earned weekly prizes will be awarded to kids who read at least one book each week. There will be weekly prizes for each child, as well as weekly raffle basket prizes. Any child may register, even if they can’t make it to the library each week. There will be multiple family-friendly Summer Reading Celebration events at the
library throughout the summer, including the SRC Kick-Off Carnival; Recycled Music with Jack Licitra from South Bay Arts; The Music, Bubbles, & Comedy Show: Born to Read; Prestino’s Magic; and Jester Jim. Families can check Emma Clark Library’s newsletter for dates and registration information, www.emmaclark.org/newsletters. In addition, the library would like to know what music Three Village kids are listening to these days. There will be a big wall in the Children’s Department with all of the answers. As extra incentive to read over the summer, the Emma Cup is back. The library holds a friendly competition between the local elementary schools. The school that has the highest percentage of children that sign up for and finish SRC — each child must read at least seven books to complete the program — will have their school and year inscribed in the Emma Cup trophy. SRC ends Aug. 31, and the winning school will be announced in September. Teens also have an SRC and may pick up an entry form at the Adult Reference Desk and have a chance to win a gift basket in August at the end of the program. Emma S. Clark Memorial Library is located at 120 Main St., Setauket. For more information about the Summer Reading Club, email email@example.com or call 631941-4080, ext. 123.
A Message From Vivian Viloria-Fisher VivianForLongIsland.org Dear Friends, The Three Village area is my home. I raised my children here, taught here and served as your Suffolk County legislator here. I thank you for electing me 7 times as your legislator. I was proud and privileged to serve my community. Now I’m running to represent you in the United States Congress and need your support on June 26 - Primary Day. Why? Because… I’m the only candidate who is both a lifelong Democrat and a fifty year resident of this district. I’m the only term limited legislator who fought back and voted against the racial profiling, anti-immigrant laws. My family and I faced threats, harassment and racial slurs because of my vote. I insisted on having Planned Parenthood sit on the Teen Pregnancy Task force that I convened. I served on the board of Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic from the time I left the legislature up until I decided to run for this office. I worked with the Administrative Law Judge to provide a suitable space in the County court buildings for victims of domestic violence and their children, and I supported a number of domestic violence advocacy groups. I wrote groundbreaking laws that: Capped CO2 from power plants, banned MTBE to protect our water, required that county buildings be built according to LEED standards, reduced use of bags at retail stores (did not pass), published “do not sell” list of invasive plants, established agricultural stewardship program: (90% of Suffolk farmers participate voluntarily and have reduced their fertilizer, pesticide and water use with the help of Cornell Cooperative Extension scientists,) convened the victory gardens task force, the clean energy task force, invasive species task force (continues to meet to identify invasives that should be added to list), and the food policy council (continues to meet to bring healthy food to food deserts, promote locally grown food, and support farming community and community gardens). You can read more about my work in social justice, the arts, education, health care and support of veterans on my Facebook page, Vivian for Congress, or visit my website, vivianforlongisland.org. Anyone can talk, but you know what I’ll do, because you know what I’ve done. With great fondness and appreciation, Vivian Viloria-Fisher “Vivian Viloria-Fisher has a solid blend of track record, depth of experience, name recognition from her years in the county Legislature and laser focus on the few issues we could easily see being the deciding factors come November: health care (especially regarding reproductive/women’s health care rights), gun control and immigration.” Editorial Village Times Herald June 7, 2018 Paid for by Vivian For Long Island

EDUCATION Technology upgrades enhance student learning in Three Village To those still traumatized by the time they had to dissect a frog in biology class, something better is on the horizon. And, that something has already arrived in some Three Village classrooms. At the June 6 board meeting, Kerrin Welch-Pollera, executive director of instructional technology, spoke of the most recent tech upgrades in the district, including the district’s new virtual reality workstations, known as zSpace. She also pointed out that benefits of zSpace, which is up and running at all of the secondary schools, already are evident in Ward Melville’s general labs and anatomy and physiology classes — that’s
where the frogs don’t come in. Pollera explained that students use special glasses and a stylus to manipulate virtual organs and subjects from various angles and distances so that they can “interact directly with the content.” She added that zSpace can be used to teach students various topics, like forces of motion and virtual 3-D sculpting, and enables them to do things they could not do in a regular lab, such as see and dissect a human heart, manipulate DNA, or take apart a car engine. Additionally, Kevin Scanlon, assistant superintendent for educational services, said summer curriculum writing projects will work to further incorporate zSpace into courses. Pollera, who was recognized during the meeting for receiving the honor of District Administrator Award from the New York Library Association–Section of School Libraries, also spoke about new Chromebooks in elementary classrooms and the installation of interactive, virtual reality workstations at the secondary schools. As part of the district’s one-to-one device initiative, ninth-grade students at both junior highs received the first wave of Chromebooks in March. After summer break, the notebook computers will be returned to students for use in 10th grade, while next year’s seventh- through ninthgraders will also receive Chromebooks to use at home and at school. Pollera said the district is awaiting approval from the

In other news, the board approved several administrative appointments, including new principals at P.J. Gelinas Junior High and Setauket Elementary School. Corinne Keane, assistant principal at P.J. Gelinas, was named principal of the school, where she has taught or been an administrator for 15 years. She will take over for William Bernhard, who will be the new principal at Ward Melville High School. Current principal Alan Baum will
leave his position at Ward Melville to become the district’s executive director of secondary curriculum and human resources. Setauket Elementary School will welcome Kristin Rimmer, acting principal at the school this year, as its permanent head. Rimmer began teaching in the district in 2004 and was previously assistant principal and preschool liaison at Nassakeag Elementary School. Also appointed were Nathalie Lilavois for the position of districtwide director of elementary curriculum and Kerri Golini for director of foreign language and English as a new language.

Ward Melville High School’s spring semester gourmet foods classes recently showcased their creativity as they took part in this year’s Cupcake Wars competition. This semester’s themes were fantasy and garden for first period and under the sea for second and third period. Students worked during the course of a week to prepare everything from fondant mermaid tails to aliens and planets. On the day of the competition, judges walked around
each display, talked with students about the displays and sampled the cupcakes. The winners this semester were Victoria Prinzo for her Alice in Wonderland display (period 1), the Yellow Kitchen for their Underwater display (period 2), and Green Kitchen for their Poseidon display (period 3). All judges commended students for their outstanding efforts and students certainly enjoyed tasting the results from their projects.

Vice President Quality, Patient Safety & Regulatory Affairs HIPAA Privacy Officer St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center Catholic Health Services (CHS) presented St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center with three Zero Harm Awards, for commitment to improving patient safety. At St. Catherine of Siena, we strive for excellence in patient safety and clinical outcomes, these awards are a culmination of zero harm in key areas for 12 consecutive months. Below is a breakdown of the awards and what they mean for our patients and the community we serve.
A central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) is a serious infection that occurs when germs (usually bacteria or viruses) enter the bloodstream through the central line. Strict protocols are in place to ensure placement is done under sterile conditions by specially credentialed staff and the maintenance of the line is continually assessed to be sure it remains clean and meets standards of care. The best way to prevent infection is to remove a central catheter as soon as it is no longer needed. Central lines are usually placed for patients with difficult IV access, to administer certain medications, high volume of IV fluid or blood products, or to monitor critically ill patients. CLABSI are costly to treat, increase patient’s length of stay in hospital and require the need for expensive antibiotic therapy. They also place the patient at greater risk for associated complications. Proactive rounding by the healthcare team every day to evaluate central line catheters has shown to be very effective in achieving zero infections.
Eliminating Violent Restraints in Behavioral Health Our Psychiatric Division provides care to adult patients over 18 years for various psychiatric diagnosis. Many patients also require supportive care for activities of daily living due to age, mental status, and physical status. A portion of these patients have comorbid substance abuse issues and/or co-occurring medical problems. Under the care of an expert psychiatry staff, patients have the best chance to enhance their interpersonal skills, obtain education about their disorder, gain support from staff, family and peers and build on their strengths. Studies have shown that seclusion and restraints have little therapeutic value, and can cause emotional and physical harm, and even death. St. Catherine maintains the utmost respect and caring for all patients regardless of diagnosis or setting of care. Restraints are safety measures of absolute last resort. Through policy and practice, education and training, a dedicated staff provides a multidisciplinary approach and therapeutic environment that protects patients and staff and has been effective in eliminating the use of violent restraints.
SSI Abdominal Hysterectomy The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines surgical site infection (SSI) as an infection that occurs within 30 days of a procedure in the part of the body where the surgery took place. As mentioned above with CLABSI, Surgical Site Infections, regardless of site, result in longer length of stay, infection, higher risk of readmission and re-operation, and other associated complications. Strict adherence to nationally approved protocols to reduce the risk of SSI include antibiotics preoperatively within 1 hour of skin incision, management of other medical conditions e.g. control of blood pressure, glucose levels for patients with diabetes, skin preparation and strict adherence to hand hygiene and surgical site wound care after discharge have proven to be very effective in eliminating these infections.
St. Catherine of Siena is committed to creating a culture of safety for staff, patients and visitors. To learn more, visit: stcatherines.chsli.org

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. The kits are also available free at each Suffolk County legislator’s office and will remain offered through

Ward Melville boys continue tradition of excellence Matt Grillo, Ryan Pallonetti, Zach Hobbes score big in final game, topple state rival West Genesee for second straight state title BY DESIRÉE KEEGAN DESIREE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Ryan Pallonetti wasn’t missing the game this time, and he made his presence known. The Ward Melville senior scored three goals in the Patriots’ 15-2 win over West Genesee for the school’s second straight state title June 9. He’d missed all last year and part of his sophomore season with a knee injury. “Ryan’s an incredible player,” said classmate Zach Hobbes, of Pallonetti, who scored the first two goals and assisted on the third to get the game going. “It was great seeing him play the way he did today since he didn’t get the opportunity ... last year.”
Ward Melville 15 West Genesee 2
A familiar yet different narrative developed in this season’s finale compared to last. Ward Melville had eked out a 10-9 win against Pittsford after scoring six straight, the final coming in overtime. Matt Grillo scored the final two goals of the game, which was on his birthday, and rose to the occasion once again this year. The senior (four goals, one assist) went on another scoring run to propel his team this year, finding the net three straight times in the third to help extend Ward Melville’s halftime advantage from eight goals to 12. The lopsided result in the final was out of the ordinary, although it followed the Patriots’ landslide victory in the state semifinal, an 18-2 win over Niskayuna. West Genesee has won 15 state championships, the most in New York history, under head coach Mike Messere, the nation’s all-time leader in career victories with 841. Ward Melville, ranked No. 1 in the country by Inside Lacrosse, split six previous championship-game matchups with West Genesee, the last in 2013, a 16-4 victory under legendary former head coach Mike Hoppey. Current head coach Jay Negus won his first state title last year. “I have to credit my defense for getting me ready for every game,” said Grillo, who ranks sixth in the county in scoring with 70 goals and 16 assists. “Even in practice, it’s the best defense I’ll have to face all year. They played amazing as usual to hold a very good team to just two goals. On the offensive end, jumping out to an early lead is something we’ve tried to consistently do all season. To see us execute like we did on our biggest stage is something really special.” The Patriots defense made multiple
stops to give Ward Melville plenty of opportunities in transition. Hobbes and junior Malachy McAvoy each racked up two goals and four others added goals. “It took a lot of stress out of the game knowing that we maintained a lead all four quarters,” Hobbes said. “When you build a lead that early in a game it gives the team a lot of confidence, and we have a lot of experience in playoff games. It’s unreal winning back-to-back championships — it’s something every team works for every season, and we were able to do it twice — especially winning it with my best friends. We’ve worked for this moment.” Grillo credited Ward Melville’s unique bond as helping the boys claim the program’s 10th state title and third in the last six years. The Patriots became just the second school to reach the double-digit title mark. It was Ward Melville’s 15th trip to the finals. “It really helps with our dynamic,” he said of his bond with his teammates. “We had everyone contributing. We’re unselfish, move the ball well and take smart shots, always looking for the extra pass to get the easy goal.” Grillo said his younger self dreamed of playing for Ward Melville, recalling standing on the sidelines beaming, hoping he’d one day take the place of the athletes he was watching with eyes wide open. “I always give it my all in every practice, every game,” Grillo said. “So many great players have come through this program and built it up to what it is now, and it’s an amazing feeling knowing we were able to continue the Ward Melville lacrosse legacy. This has been a ride I’ll never forget.”
The senior added after each success and milestone that he and Hobbes would look at each other and say, “Our younger selves would be proud of what we accomplished.”

Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of heaven, blessed mother of the Son of God, immaculate virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh star of the sea, help me & show me here in, you are my mother. Oh Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in this necessity. There are none who can withstand your power. Oh show me herein you are my mother. Oh Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. (3 times). Oh Holy Mary, I place this cause in your hands. (3 times). Holy Spirit, you who solve all problems, light all roads so that I can obtain my goals. 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. The person must say this prayer 3 consecutive days. The request will be granted. This prayer must be published after the favor has been granted. Thank you again. M.S.
