A mother’s Hope for Javier leads to hope for DMD patients BY REBECCA ANZEL When Jennifer Portnoy of Stony Brook was given her son’s diagnosis, the doctors told her that there was nothing she could do but love him and enjoy her time with him. Javier, she was told, had a rapidly progressive form of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, an incurable genetic disorder most prevalent in boys. “I’m not the type of person that finds that an acceptable treatment plan,” she said. “I needed to get to work to try and create a different outcome.” Portnoy co-founded Hope for Javier Inc. a few months later as a not-for-profit organization to help fund research that might lead to an effective treatment or cure. Her family travelled to Cincinnati for doctors’ appointments and medical treatments. Along the way, she met other families in the New York-area who did not have the job flexibility or financial resources to travel for out-of-state care. Portnoy said she realized that with Hope for Javier’s size, it could have an “enormous impact” by addressing that disparity in access to health care.

After researching other area hospitals, Portnoy and Hope for Javier formed a partnership with Stony Brook Children’s Hospital to create the first DMD Center in the tri-state area. The center opened Oct. 5 after a $600,000 donation from Hope for Javier. “As an academic medical center, we will be able to identify clinical trials as we continue to fight this disease, and your support gives patients and families hope, and it will enable our clinical leadership to provide a level of research, care and support that is unrivaled in the region,” Samuel Stanley, Stony Brook University president, said in a public comment to Portnoy at the center’s ribbon-cutting ceremony. He added that the center will be a “destination” for residents of the tri-state area, and according to a Stony Brook University Hospital press release, the new center is the only one of its kind between Boston, Massachusetts and Baltimore, Maryland. “This new program extends our geographic reach and continues our development as a regional healthcare provider of choice for thousands of patients and
their families across the tri-state region,” L. Reuven Pasternak, SBUH CEO, wrote in a blog post. Boys with DMD do not have a protein called dystrophin, which keeps muscle cells in one piece. Muscle weakness usually begins before age 5, showing first in their upper arms and legs. DMD can also affect a patient’s throat, brain, stomach, spine and chest muscles. It affects about 1 in 5,000 boys in the United States, according to a hospital press release. DMD used to kill boys not long after their teen years, but with modern medicine, patients usually live into their early 30s, according to the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s website. “This will be a comprehensive center, including pediatric specialists from neurology, cardiology, pulmonary medicine, gastroenterology [and] orthopedics” to name a few, Margaret McGovern, physician-in-chief of Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, said at the new center’s ribbon-cutting ceremony. Studies have shown that access to this sort of multidisciplinary care adds an average of 10 years to the life expectancy of a

first generation to survive it.” Stony Brook Children’s Hospital is Suffolk County’s only children’s hospital and has more than 160 pediatric doctors in over 30 specialties. It is set to occupy 10 floors of Stony Brook’s new Medical Center Hospital Pavilion, set to open in 2018, next to the main university hospital.

Barber angela oliva returns to the place she learned her craft.
Local barber returns to shop Glynn Mercep and Purcell, LLP North Country Road P.O. Box 712 Stony Brook, NY 11790 631-751-5757 firstname.lastname@example.org
Local barber Angela Oliva has come full circle. She is back where it all began and will be celebrating this Saturday. Her father, Jerry Bosso, opened University Barber Shop in the early 1970s in the Setauket shopping center on Route 25A. That’s where she got her start. She’s been cutting hair for 46 years. “I do the grandfather, the father, the sons, the grandsons,” she said, “four generations. I love my customers. I’ve given so many children their first haircuts, their communion haircuts, their wedding haircuts.”
The Three Village area’s premier personal injury, general litigation, criminal and real estate law firm.
When the shopping center was reconfigured to accommodate Swezey’s department store, the barber shop was torn down. Oliva has worked at Phil the Barber’s in Stony Brook Village and at Angelo’s Barber Shop in Setauket. She says she is thrilled to be back in the original location at The Tailored Male, owned by Al Amore, which will have its grand opening on Saturday. She said she feels her father’s presence in the shop. You’ll find Oliva at her chair Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. —Donna newman

Traffic signals to replace stop signs, make Lower Sheep Pasture Road safer By Donna newman Donna@tbrnewspapers.com
If it feels like the morning commute or the ride to the local store is a little smoother, that’s because it is. Many roads within the Three Village area were repaved over the summer, according to press releases from Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro (R) and Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station), who announced the completion of the projects this month. Two multiroad jobs addressed streets in the vicinity of Minnesauke and Nassakeag elementary schools. In addition, prior to paving, preparations were made for the installation of traffic signals to replace stop signs at the points where Lower Sheep Pasture Road meets Bennetts Road and Pond Path, according to Losquadro. Traffic Safety Director Jon Sullivan said his office had received multiple complaints from residents, dating back ten years. A traffic study found that over a period of three years, there were a combined 26 traffic accidents at the two locations, he said, warranting the change from stop signs to traffic lights. “The installation will reduce accidents and improve traffic safety,” he concluded. The estimated cost for the traffic signals is an additional $200,000, according to Losquadro. In Setauket, around Minnesauke, the highway department resurfaced 11 roads. Andrea Drive, Bennetts Road, Bluetop Road, Captains Walk, Detmer Road, Doolings Path, Hilltop Lane, Michelle Court, Peace Lane, Rising Road and St. George Glen Drive were all freshly paved.
The job required several weeks of concrete work, with crews replacing more than 2,700 square feet of aprons and 1,650 linear feet of curb. The total cost for the project was nearly $600,000. “This paving provided much needed relief for residents and motorists in the vicinity of Andrea Drive and Bennetts Road,” Losquadro said in a statement. In East Setauket near Nassakeag, 13 streets were paved. Rides on Amherst Court, Cornell Court, Cornwallis Road, Daniel Webster Drive, Hamilton Road, Jackson Drive, Jefferson Court, Montpelier Court, Nathan Hale Drive, University Drive, Washington Avenue, Yale Court and Yorktown Road are much smoother. Crews replaced more than 1,600 square feet of aprons and 1,600 linear feet of curb at a total cost of just over $500,000. “The two signal builds on Sheep Pasture Road at Bennetts Road and Pond Path are both on hold, awaiting utility relocations,” a spokesman for Losquadro said in an email. “The signal poles are up, but it should be another three weeks before the utility work is finished and we can move forward.” The lights will be put into a flash pattern for two weeks until residents get acclimated to their presence, and it should be about two months until they’re fully functional, he said. “Each time we complete a paving project, we improve the quality of life for local residents and there is a positive impact for the larger community,” Cartright said in a statement. “I am glad to announce the completion of this project and we look forward to continuing to work with the Highway Department to make road improvements districtwide.”

Village Mayor Margot Garant and the rest of the village board thank donors and volunteers who raised money to make their impending renovations to rocketship Park possible at an event oct. 13.
Rocketship Park renovation plans set for winter, park to reopen in spring By Alex Petroski firstname.lastname@example.org Port Jefferson’s iconic Rocketship Park is getting a facelift this winter. Village board members, mayors past and present, local politicians, community members and donors gathered at the park Oct. 13 to commemorate the kick-off of the project. “In the seven years that I’ve been your mayor, we’ve done a lot of projects here in Port Jefferson … but of all of those projects, I don’t think one is more important or near and
dear to our hearts than this little park, because Rocketship Park is really the heartbeat of the community,” Mayor Margot Garant said. In all, nearly $275,000 has been raised toward the project, in large part thanks to the efforts of the Village’s Treasure Your Parks campaign. On Oct. 9, a 15K Run to the Port Jeff Brewing Company hosted nearly 1,000 runners and raised more than $5,000 toward the renovations. The brewery’s owner, Mike Philbrick, said he decided to donate the proceeds from the race toward the Rocketship
Park initiative because he has four kids and the cause is very personal to him. Local Cub Scout Troop 41 held a bake sale and sold candy and popcorn for movie night events at Harborfront Park during the summer to raise money as well, and representatives from the group were in attendance Oct. 13 to hand over a $350 check to Garant. “It takes a village to rebuild Rocketship Park,” Garant said. “It’s about our children and it’s about the local economy, because parks are critically impor-
tant to our community.” Former village trustee and a member of the fundraising committee, Adrienne Kessel, thanked those involved for their hard work. “No one does this alone — we have a committee that has worked tirelessly for the last four years to get us to where we are today,” she said. Garant also recognized the long list of private donors who supported the fundraising efforts. The park will be dismantled beginning in late November, equipment will be ordered and installed, and a ribbon cutting ceremony for the brand new Rocketship Park will be held sometime in late April or early May, according to an estimate from Garant.

last thing added to the curriculum. Then ask, what was removed to make room for it. If there’s no answer, it means the program was diluted (unless the school day or year was expanded — not a chance) or in a misguided way, the usual ballast of art and music were reduced. Like the roach motel, once something enters the schoolhouse door, it can almost never leave. Schools change very little. If you were in the fifth grade 25 years ago and you visited a class today, it would look very familiar. Computers and tablets are used like electric paper, but the substance is the same. Oh, the blackboards are now smarter … but are the kids? Old wine in new bottles. Remember, the learning clock is ticking. Time is passing. As a child, I had a fantasy of every person, at birth, receiving a huge hourglass. Except it wasn’t designed to measure an hour. It was constructed as a lifetime-glass. The top bulb contained all the sand representing one’s life according to actuarial tables. It was inverted at birth and the sand started trickling through the narrow stem passageway. One could see the top bulb dripping sand into the bottom bulb. Even at night, opening one eye, one could visualize their lifetime with the lower heap growing while the upper kept draining smaller. I wondered if a life would be led differently with such a visual aid. Schools have to think that way. They must sort out, rummage through, and evaluate all available knowledge and select
those age-appropriate things that will help develop students into educated people with transferable skills and functional wisdom. Ideally, layer upon layer will build up until enough practical knowledge and related talents enable graduates to negotiate life in a fluid and uncertain world — a very moveable feast. A friend recently told me the experience of his dental school orientation at the University of Maryland. The dean advised the new students that 50% of what they’d learn would no longer be true by the time they graduated. Furthermore, he advised, they won’t know which 50% it was. So what did we learn in school? Reading. Of course reading. And math. Although I never did divide 4/7 by 3/9 ever again, I remember some lessons quite well. Pilgrims wore funny hats and buckled shoes. We drew pictures of them. They were brought home and taped to refrigerators — or iceboxes —remember, this was the South Bronx in the ‘50s. “Mary’s violet eyes … ” helped us learn what was, at the time, the order of the planets. But of what practical value is there in knowing that Jupiter is nearer to the earth than Saturn? So little time … so much knowledge. Bruce Stasiuk of Setauket continued to teach after retirement. He currently offers workshops to seniors (citizens, that is) as an instructor in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, housed on the campus of Stony Brook University. Look for part 2 in next week’s edition.

Insuring Our Friends and Neighbors In The Three Villages and Beyond With Personalized Service Since 1928
It was the last week of August and I was catching up on some work here at the Koeppel Dental Group. It was quiet as it usually is this time of year when everyone is getting ready for Labor Day and the first day of school. From the back, I could hear Dr. Koeppel’ s hardy laughter. Curiously, I got up to see what all the commotion was about. As usual, there was a lot of conversation and smiling going on. This is not an uncommon occurrence! Dr. Koeppel had just finished a Hybridge case for one of our patients, Peggy. She was to marry oﬀ one of her 5 children. The mother of the bride was here today to have her implant supported upper and lower Hybridge prosthesis inserted. She was so excited and could not stop smiling!! It was so contagious. There Peggy sat and just glowed. I don’t think I ever saw her smile as much as she did that afternoon. Peggy had come to see Dr. Koeppel about a year ago and had failing, hopeless, yellow teeth. Her bonded front teeth were hanging on by a prayer. How could she ever go to her daughter’s wedding looking as she was. A youthful , 65 year old with long blond hair needed a new smile for the very happy occasion. After the careful planning that began about a year ago, Dr. Koeppel’s transformation gave her an aﬀordable dental implant solution. He gave her a breathtaking and beautiful smile. More than that, he robbed Mother Nature for her and gave her confidence that she had lost over the years. As she left the oﬃce she said, “this is an opportunity for me to put the top down in my Jeep!” We all laughed and told her if a police oﬃcer should stop her,” JUST SMILE AT HIM!” Suﬀolk Hybridge practice is part of the Koeppel Dental Group. Dr. Ira Koeppel is the only certified, licensed practitioner for both Nassau and Suﬀolk Counties. Surgery is performed by a board certified oral surgeon. Hybridge gives patients an aﬀordable implant solution to teeth that are hopeless as an alternative to removable dentures. All treatment is done under one roof. No need to go from oﬃce to oﬃce. In Peggy’s case, she went for many consultations but decided to come to the Koeppel Dental Group eliminating any lack of communication between practices. Treatment was better coordinated making Peggy much more comfortable throughout her care. For convenience to patients, Koeppel Dental Group has a board certified oral surgeon, endodontist as well as a periodontist on staﬀ. Dr. Koeppel, past president of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (New York Chapter) is a highly regarded Cosmetic Dentist known for creating gorgeous, healthy smiles as well as specializing in full mouth reconstruction, implant restorations, general dentistry, veneers, crown and bridge, TMJ therapy, dentures and partials and obstructive sleep apnea appliances. Koeppel Dental Group is also an Invisalign preferred provider. Please look for the billboard advertisement on Rte. 347 in East Setauket. You are invited to come for a complimentary consultation to discuss questions you may have. The dream of a beautiful smile is finally within reach. Simple solutions for a lasting smile are here for you! Visit www.SmileDreamMaker.com for more about Dr. Koeppel and the Koeppel Dental Group. The oﬃce is located at 126 Gnarled Hollow Rd., E.

Suffolk County bans new deadly opioid drug By Victoria Espinoza Victoria@tbrnewspapers.com A victory was gained in the fight against opioid abuse this month, as the Suffolk County Legislature unanimously approved a new bill that prohibits the sale and possession of U-47700, a highly addictive synthetic opioid drug. The pink pill contains fentanyl, another addictive and dangerous opioid, and is resistant to treatment with Narcan, a drug used to revive people who have overdosed. Suffolk County Legislator Steve Stern (D-Dix Hills) created the bill, which passed Oct. 5. “We must do everything in our power to protect our young people from synthetic opioids like U-47700 that we know lead to addiction, serious health effects, graduation to heroin and potential death,” Stern said in a statement. Stern’s office said U-47700
was originally developed by the pharmaceutical industry as an alternative to morphine but was never marketed when it was determined to be more than eight times as potent as morphine. The drug is manufactured overseas, mainly in China and is sold at a low cost on the internet, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. It can be smoked, snorted or orally ingested and can cause respiratory depression, coma, permanent brain damage and death. The DEA temporarily listed the drug on Schedule I of the federal Controlled Substances Act in September because of the imminent hazard it presents to public safety. Schedule I drugs have a high potential for abuse, are not currently accepted for medical use in the U.S. and are deemed unsafe even under medical supervision. Other drugs in the Schedule I list include heroin, LSD and ecstasy.

Many states, including Georgia, Ohio and Wyoming, have banned the drug. The DEA confirmed at least 15 fatalities from the use of U-47700, and according to news sources, at least 50 deaths nationwide can be linked to the drug. According to the bill, any person who knowingly violates the law will be guilty of an unclassified misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 and/or up to one year of imprisonment. The law goes into effect immediately after the Office of the Secretary of State files it. The legislation to prohibit its sale was supported by the entire legislature, as well as Health Commissioner James Tomarken and Police Commissioner Tim Sini. “I thank my colleagues on the Legislature for joining me in taking meaningful action to protect the health and safety of our communities,” Stern said.

PEOPlE Jefferson’s Ferry Foundation Humanitarian of the Year Jefferson’s Ferry Lifecare Retirement Community held its Annual Monte Carlo Night fundraiser that supports the Jefferson’s Ferry Foundation Sept. 24. The evening’s festivities included the presentation of the Humanitarian of the Year Award — a prestigious honor given to philanthropic leaders in the community who exhibit tremendous commitment, selflessness and long-term dedication to helping others — to Jefferson’s Ferry resident Jan Parker. As an educator and humanitarian, Parker has made a difference in so many lives. She taught college economics for 50 years at Wellesley, Wheaton, Sweet Briar and Suffolk County Community colleges, among others. She was twice awarded Ford Foundation Research Fellowships and was a visiting scholar at Massachusetts Institute of Technology for a year upon the recommendation of Nobel Laureate in Economics, Robert Solow. Since her retirement, Parker has kept very busy, volunteering for the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, the local Red Cross and the Family Service League. For six years, she was a certified New York State Long-Term Care Ombudsman, serving at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home in Bay Shore. While there, she funded the purchase of many iPods that provided personalized music for dementia patients at the facility. Currently Parker supports the efforts and missions of many organizations, including AmeriCares, CARE, Feeding America, Project HOPE, UNICEF and the Jefferson’s Ferry Foundation. She was the pioneer in establishing the Jefferson’s Ferry charitable gift annuity

Clearing trees to build solar farms, like this one in Shoreham, would be illegal in Brookhaven Town if a proposed amendment passes.
Town mulling solar amendment By NiCole GeddeS Brookhaven Town is all for going green — but not at the expense of green. The town board held a public hearing to discuss a resolution that would amend its solar code during a meeting Sept. 29 and would make land clearing for solar energy production illegal. If passed, solar energy production equipment could only be installed on land that was cleared prior to January 2016. “It is a starting point and that is the best part,” Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine (R) said of the amendment in a phone interview. “We will not be clearing trees to create solar farms in business and industrial zones. … While I’m a believer in solar power, we don’t want to trade one green for another green.” Community members spoke in favor of the amendment during the public comment period of the meeting. “We need not sacrifice forests for solar,” Richard Amper, executive director of Long Island Pine Barrens Society, said in an interview. “It’s equivalent to destroying the environment to protect it. We don’t have the open space to meet the requirements of Governor Cuomo’s ‘50 by 30’ initiative, without alternative transmission lines such as offshore wind farming.” The Clean Energy Standard of Cuomo (D) requires that 50 percent of New York’s electricity comes from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar by 2030. Amper said he is in favor of alternate energy sources, and welcomed the amendment. “We need renewable energy sources, solar is important,” he said. “We just need to be careful where it’s sited. It shouldn’t
be on forested land, on farms where food is grown or in residential communities. It should be on rooftops, parking lots and previously cleared lands.” Other members of the town board expressed their support for the amendment. “My constituents in Council District 1 have expressed support for renewable energy and smart energy alternatives,” Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station) said in a statement. “They want to ensure that government is thinking strategically about how to limit and reduce nonrenewable energy, improve air quality and diversify power sources.” Additionally, the amendment would reduce the amount of acreage allowed for solar farming, from 10 to 5 acres in business and industrial zones. Restrictions in the town’s solar code also require a buffer zone of 25 feet around all mechanical equipment and solar panel arrays for aesthetic reasons. Director and vice president of the East Moriches Property Owners Association, Jim Gleason, — Ed Romaine spoke in favor of the amendment during the meeting, but advocated for increasing buffer zones. “Solar panels are ugly,” he said. “A 25foot minimum buffer is not enough, 7-foot evergreens are not tall enough. Some panels are 20 feet.” Councilwoman Jane Bonner (C-Rocky Point) disagreed. “I think that shopping centers and housing developments are more unsightly than solar panels,” Bonner said. “There’s no noise, no traffic, no pollution and no long-term health risks for residents in communities where solar farming and energy production is located.” The town board will vote on the resolution at the meeting Thursday, Oct. 27.
‘We will not be clearing trees to create solar farms in business and industrial zones. ... While I’m a believer in solar power, we don’t want to trade one green for another green.’
It is absolutely horrendous to think that a nation as great as the United States has such a problem with gun homicides. Too often I hear about some whack job or drug dealer on streets with a gun, committing terrible crimes. At the same time, the answer to this crisis can never be to deprive normal citizens, who abide by the law, of their rights to own a firearm. Knee-jerk gun control laws defeat the purpose of law itself. They do not stop criminals from obtaining guns, they do not stop terrorists from getting guns, and they do not make us safer. For instance, look at the major cities that have some of the most stringent gun control laws compared to their homicide rates — Chicago, Detroit, and even parts of New York. If a bad person wants a gun, they are going to be able to get one, plain and simple. The reason I bring this up is because of Anna Throne-Holst’s recent attack ads on our Congressman, Lee Zeldin, where she practically states that his actions encourage gun violence in our country. This television advertisement simulates a
school shooting drill. It gives us the sense that school kids are in danger and that Zeldin is responsible. I cannot be the only one who thinks this these ads are ridiculous, misleading and maybe even insulting to the intelligence of voters. Zeldin has done no such thing and has been strongly supported by law enforcement professionals, getting the endorsements from police chiefs, sheriffs, and Police Benevolent Associations. It’s a shame that Throne-Holst has to stoop to this level; I know politics is politics, but this is absurd. I really hope the people viewing this ad are smart enough to see through it for what it really is: pure political garbage. Its no surprise that Throne-Holst has aligned herself with Hillary Clinton. As acting chairperson of the Suffolk County SCOPE Chapter, I am proud to endorse Lee Zeldin for reelection and present him with an A rating on firearm rights.
James Saccardi Setauket
Why would anyone vote for Trump? He’s not Hillary and he has a chance. The problem with Hillary is that she is a hard-core card-carrying socialist, and her goal is to complete the stated mission of the current president, which is to fundamentally transform America, with reckless disregard for our Constitution. She has stated that she will defend and extend President Obama’s executive actions with regard to illegal immigrants, providing them with illegal executive amnesty. The United States Congress has acted on “comprehensive immigration reform” and has rejected it. Hillary and Obama have chosen to ignore the constitutionally mandated process by which laws in this country are established and enforced, and she has promised to deliver, among other things, immediate access to Obamacare and welfare benefits, a clear path to full citizenship and voting rights to aliens in our country illegally at the present time. As if that were not enough, she also plans to admit a minimum of 105,000 refugees annually from the Muslim world. Like all good socialists, Hillary is dedicated to the proposition of redistribution of wealth, through exorbitant tax burdens on those who have earned it, to be doled out to various constituent groups of her party. She favors putting coal companies and their employees out of business. When challenged on her claim that she was a friend of the West Virginia coal miners, she replied, “I don’t know how to explain it other than what I said was totally out of context from what I meant, because I’ve been talking about helping coal country for a very long time.
And it was a misstatement, because what I was saying is that the way things are going now, we will continue to lose jobs.” During her tenure as secretary of state, her appalling ineptitude showed that she is unfit for any position of authority and responsibility, certainly including the president of the United States. Her actions regarding Benghazi caused the deaths of four American diplomats, and she then lied to the American people about the cause of it. She described Syrian dictator Assad as a “reformer.” She set up a private email server to allow her to combine classified government business with her criminal Clinton Foundation activities and was saved from prosecution only through political interference with the FBI, thereby demonstrating that she is correct in her belief that she is truly above the law. Donald Trump has indeed made some regrettable remarks, which can reasonably be construed as unsubstantiated braggadocio from a billionaire playboy entertainer. However, he does show the insight to realize that we, as a nation, are heading in the wrong direction, particularly with regard to our national sovereignty, constitutional government, energy policy, health care reform and American exceptionalism, and I believe that he will do his best to make America great again. Hillary, who was accurately characterized by William Safire as a “congenital liar,” will do her best to make America socialist.

Tips for a safe Halloween In preparation for Halloween, Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro (R) is offering parents some tips, courtesy of the American Academy of Pediatrics, to help ensure children enjoy the holiday safely.
ALL DRESSED UP
• Consider adding reflective tape or striping to costumes and trick-or-treat bags for greater visibility. • Because masks can limit or block eyesight, consider nontoxic makeup and decorative hats as safer alternatives. •When shopping for costumes, wigs and accessories, look for and purchase those with a label clearly indicating they are flame-resistant. • If a sword, cane or stick is a part of your child’s costume, make sure it it’s not sharp or long.
ON THE TRICK-OR-TREAT TRAIL
• A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds. • Obtain flashlights with fresh batteries for all children and their escorts. • If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home. • Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat. • Because pedestrian injuries are the most common injuries to children on Halloween,

remind trick-or-treaters: • Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going. • Remember reflective tape for costumes and trick-or-treat bags. • Carry a cell phone for quick communication. • Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk. • If no sidewalk is available, walk at the far edge of the roadway facing traffic. • Never cut across yards or use alleys. • Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks. Never cross between parked cars or out of driveways. • Don’t assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing trick-or-treaters. Just because one car stops, doesn’t mean others will. • Law enforcement authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity.

Teens create life-size Candy Land game for kids at library It was a fun time in the Children’s Department of the Emma S. Clark Memorial Library in Setauket Oct. 14. Teen volunteers transformed the room into a life-sized Candy Land game board for the evening. Between 6 and 8 p.m., 91 children (ages 3 to 7) and 72 adults traversed the game’s winding trail, finding treats and goodies all along the way. Created and run by teenagers from Ward Melville High School and both Paul J. Gelinas and Robert C. Murphy Junior High Schools, the event included games, music and, of course, candy. Little ones — and teens — were invited to come in costume. Now in its fourth year, the event has become a preHalloween community tradition. —Donna newman

OBITUARY A student’s gratitude for Three Village’s Virginia Rath Bidwell By DaviD Gianopoulos Virginia Rath was a music teacher in the Three Village area first at North Country Elementary School and then at Gelinas Junior High School in the 1960s and 1970s. I met her when I was in fifth grade. One day, at the end of class, she asked me to stay after. She said, “David, I’d like you to stay after. I’d like to talk to you.” I didn’t know if I was in trouble or not. I used to get in trouble quite a bit when I was a young kid. And she said, “I want to tell you something. I think you may have the best voice in this school. You have a gift and you’re talented, and you need to know that, and you need to work on it.” Well, I had never heard once in my life that I was good at anything. See, I couldn’t read. And when I say I couldn’t read, I literally could hardly read at all. I had dyslexia. And back then, people didn’t know what dyslexia was. She looked me in the eyes and said, “You have a gift. You need to know that and you need to work on it.” Over the years after that she would stop into my class in sixth grade, knock on the door, and ask to work with me privately on singing. My teacher at that time was not too keen on letting me out of class because
I was behind on everything. And I was. I was not a good student. I couldn’t read. But Mrs. Rath won that debate with my teacher and he reluctantly let me go and work with her. And what a lucky person I was because she gave me hope that there was something that I could do well. And do well at school. And excel. Mrs. Rath stayed at North Country the next year while I and my classmates went off to junior high at Gelinas. But the following year she moved to Gelinas Junior High School and became the music teacher there. So I was lucky to have her for two more years. We did many classes together, but also she had me do solo performances with Janet Tramposh in the “Sound of Music.” When we were in sixth grade, she did the musical “Amal and the Night photo from Bryant Funeral Home Visitors.” It’s an opera, along with “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” — all these great songs — and she’d Three village music teacher virginia Rath Bidwell Her drive and commitment were incredhave the soprano section and the alto section and the tenors and the bass, and ible. Virginia Rath died Oct. 12, 2016. I am some of these songs were complicated. But forever grateful for her guidance — and she worked those kids like a taskmaster.

Over the years since then,
I’ve gone into the profession as an actor, I’ve done many TV shows and movies, I’ve done many plays — Shakespeare in the Park — and one of the reasons that I believe I am where I am today is because of her. She watered the plant I was as a young boy and gave him hope. I am forever grateful. Virginia Rath Bidwell was buried at the Caroline Church in Setauket Tuesday, Oct. 18. I so wish I had been able to be there. What a gift she was. May she rest in peace. [Arrangements were entrusted to the Bryant Funeral Home of Setauket.

Patriots avenge only league loss of the season Game 1
Smithtown E. 5 Ward Melville 3
Ward Melville 3 Commack 0
By Desirée Keegan Desiree@tBrnewspapers.com The top-ranked League I girls’ volleyball team had a chance at revenge, and they made it count. No. 1 Ward Melville fell to No. 2 Commack in five sets back in September for the Patriots first loss of the season. Since then, the girls’ volleyball team has had its eyes on avenging its only League I defeat. “It was a tough loss, but we definitely used it as fire to power ourselves to keep working,” senior libero Ellen Li said. “It’s something we looked at and we worked on, and it made us work harder each day. We wanted nothing more than to come back.” The Patriots fought back to sweep Commack in three sets on senior night Oct. 17, 25-21, 25-18 and 25-23. Despite winning the match in straight sets, the affair was a constant battle. “Last time we knew what we did wrong, and we turned a corner and fixed everything that went wrong in that game in the games we played following and leading up to this game,” Senior outside hitter Olivia Hynes said. “We can get into these holes, but we talk to each other and we get out of it right away.” A short serve put Ward Melville ahead 10-5 midway through the first set, but the Cougars battled back to tie 13-13. After scoring the next point, Ward Melville head coach Charlie Fernandes was forced to call timeout. “They keep getting in their own way, but they also battle their way out of it, so it’s pretty exciting,” he

Everyone knew we had two good outsides, but to add the two middles and the right side, we have a very complete volleyball team.” Commack went on a tear of its own to pull ahead 19-16 in the set, but junior middle blocker Schuyler Tasman came through with a block and a send over on volley that Commack could not recover, to tie the score 19-19. The two teams traded tallies over the next four points, but an out-of-bounds Commack hit and Tasman serve led Ward Melville to the first-set win. “I’m happy that we won,” Fernandes said. “I think it puts us in a good position to hopefully win the league and that should seed us well
for the playoffs. We’re still making comfortable in five-set matches, too many unforced errors for my having won three so far this year, liking, but we still have a few weeks but they didn’t want to see that to get ready, so I’m looking forward happen again against Commack.

come through in any tight situation all season, and being able to come through in that tight ending was a great feeling.” Hynes said she was happy to see her team enter the game with confidence and use that to its advantage, but she’d like to see that every time the team steps onto the court. “This game, we started off really strong and started off with a win, which set the tempo and created a different mindset for the whole game, so I want us to work on coming in strong every single game,” she said. “I wanted to look back to a great senior game we played here, so to be able to have that memory is irreplaceable.” The girls tried to come in with the same mindset in a nonleague matchup against League III’s undefeated Smithtown East, but lost a five-set battle 26-21, 25-19, 25-18, 25-15 and 26-24.
