1 July 7, 2011 Vol. 2 No. 14 Providing local news and information to the Woodbury community Cool Clear Water Pool is a Waiting for You Another summer season opens with lots of activities. Clear skies and a bright warm day brought out more than 400 bathers, and others who were just enjoying sun and shade at the Central Valley Pool. This is the first year in a while that there were no uncertainties about whether it would open on time, or whether there would be mud or grass, or a number of other issues of the past. It is pure pleasure to have such a nice area for relaxation during the summer. Credit goes to the Town Board, Supervisor Burke and the Parks Commission for making many hard decisions over the past three years. They finally came up with a pearl. Joe Gianzero, Parks Director, has had his hands full at both the Rez and the Pool, planning and working, as winter reluctantly gave way to spring and summer.

Ray Hanaburgh Sr. is a Special Graduate at M-W Graduates with Grandson - Beautiful 60th Class Ceremony It has been many years, sixty-seven to be precise, between his assaults in the Pacific Theater of War, on the Japanese held island of Guam and the infamous volcanic sands of Iwo Jima and the receiving of his High School diploma. Mr. Raymond Hanaburgh Sr., ex-gunnery Sergeant, USMC, was honored during a special presentation on June 24, 2011, at Monroe- Woodbury s sixtieth class graduation. If one was close enough, one would notice a few tears. Assisted by his graduating grandson who is also Ray, Raymond Sr., the veteran said, It is all worth it! Not only had Ray endured WWII, but as a reserve Marine, he was re-called to active duty after North Korea invaded the south in June of During that conflict, it was Gunny Hanaburgh landing at Inchon Harbor; General MacArthur s famous amphibious landing turned the defeated US forces, surrounded on the southern tip of See Graduate, page 3 Mr. Raymond Hanaburgh Sr. proudly holds his coveted diploma after graduation from Monroe-Woodbury High School.

2 2 Opinion/News EDITORIAL Liberty vs. Law making By Benjamin Meyers Our mind is God. This is what the Greek comic Menander must have said in a moment of jest. You have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD. And, I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. These are accusations by God against the people as he spoke the to Prophet Ezekiel (13:5 & 22:30) Did you read in Woodbury Gazette s last edition about the sacrifices made by the signers of the American Revolution? These were not wild-eyed, rabblerousing ruffians; they were soft-spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they valued liberty more. Standing tall, straight, and unwavering, they pledged: For the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of the Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor. Monday was Independence Day when many celebrated the signing of that great document that set forth the acknowledgement that all men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights. It then goes on with the list of grievances against King George III. Twelve years later, Congress ratified our Constitution which designated the powers of government, which in turn is amended by our Bill of Rights. Lady Liberty raises her torch over New York harbor and her eyes of justice are blindfolded. A poem written by Emma Lazarus in 1883, is graven on a tablet within the pedestal on which the statue stands. The New Colossus Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp! cries she With silent lips. Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door! This is all to say that The United States of America, and, each separate State protects the God authored liberties that we enjoy. And as FREEDOM IS NOT NEGOTIABLE, so, RIGHTEOUSNESS IS NOT NEGOTIABLE! Same-Sex Marriage will become legal in the U.S. state of New York on July 24, The Managing Editor of Straus The Chronicle, took her liberty in Straus s papers to headline Wedding bells are gonna chime. She writes, Town and village halls across New York are getting ready for the historic change coming with the state s new law legalizing same-sex marriage. Then interviewing John Burke, she quotes him, She will follow the law, no problem with that, said Woodbury Supervisor John Burke of the town s marriage officer, Desiree Potvin. Ostensibly, the Director at Straus News is only reporting about how area town officials view the new legislation. Well, they have to obey the law. Supervisor Burke said the obvious no matter what one s personal stance. This kind of legislation is not new. Long ago, Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. (The image is a type of the Senate Bill S that passed on June 24th.) And the king ordered everyone to worship the image under pain of death. But the friends of the Prophet Daniel Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Daniel. Chapter 3 They did not obey the king s law, but trusted in that if they obeyed God s commandment, God would protect and bless them. Paul, the Apostle to Jesus explains God s view about man s natural behavior in his letter to the Romans. He starts right off in the first chapter. I cannot say better than what Abraham Lincoln said in his appointment of a Southerner. Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my great concern is to be on God s side, for God is always right. July 7, 2011 The New York State Senate today passed historic property tax relief legislation that enacts a cap on the growth of local property taxes. The bill (S.5856), sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Dean G. Skelos, will cap school and local government taxes to less than two percent or the Consumer Price Index (CPI), whichever is lower. Mandate relief is also included, with $127 million in savings to local governments, in addition to the creation of a Mandate Relief Council to identify and repeal unsound, unduly burdensome laws and regulations. I am very pleased we were able to come to an agreement on mandate relief and capping property taxes, said Senator Bill Larkin (R-C, Cornwallon-Hudson). Taxpayers have been crying out for help in dealing with the heavy burden of New York s taxes and this legislation is the first step towards assisting local governments with state mandates and providing homeowners with a means to control a portion of their local spending, said Larkin. This tax levy cap would shift the focus from total spending to the actual property taxes levied to support school district and local government expenses. The bill includes the following provisions: This bill limits tax levy growth to the lesser of two percent or the annual increase in the CPI, other than the Big 5 school districts of Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Yonkers and New York City. Those are funded through city budgets. The exceptions for a tax levy above two percent or CPI are funds needed to support voterapproved capital expenditures, pensions, torts over five percent of the prior year s levy, and an override of the cap. This bill also allows the growth in the levy due to physical and quantitative change. A school district would be required to submit a tax levy proposition for approval by voters at the district s annual meeting on the 3rd Tuesday in May. If the proposed tax levy is within the district s tax levy limit, then a majority vote would be required for approval. If the proposed tax levy seeks to override the cap and exceeds the district s tax levy cap, the threshold required for approval would be 60 percent of the vote. A school district that does not levy an amount up to the cap in any one year would be allowed to carry over unused tax levy capacity into future years. However, this carryover levy capacity cannot be used to increase its tax levy by more than Senate Passes Historic Property TAX CAP Legislation Bill Also Provides for Mandate Relief an additional 1.5 percent above the cap in any single year. In the event a district s actual tax levy exceeds its authorized levy due to clerical or technical errors, the erroneous excess levy must be placed in reserve to offset the levy for the next school year. The bill also provides for the same cap to apply to taxes levied by municipal governments. Local governments that do not levy an amount up to the cap in one year can rollover that amount up to 1.5 percent in the following year. Local boards can exceed the cap with a 60 percent vote of the governing body. Exceptions include the pension and tort judgments in excess of five percent from the prior year s levy. When enacted, the law would take effect for the fiscal year. In addition, the mandate relief component would provide real cost savings in the form of $127 million in savings to local budgets. This includes: $70 million for all local governments and school districts through piggy-backing and centralized contracts; $34.6 million in savings for school districts; $13 million for transportation/ housing/contracting/procurement/ administration for all localities; $7.9 million in social services savings for counties; and $1.5 million in criminal justice savings. The establishes a Mandate Relief Council which will: Determine if a statute or regulation is unsound, unduly burdensome, or costly; Establish procedures for repealing unfunded mandates in both statute and regulation; Provide a mechanism for direct appeals from the State Administrative Procedures Act petition; Require the state Comptroller to issue a detailed report on the cost and effect of unfunded mandates; Require that all bills that require a local government or a school or special district to take any action contain a fiscal note; and Be comprised of 11 members nominated by the Governor and Legislature: two nominations for each of the legislative leaders, and seven nominations for the Governor, including the Secretary to the Governor (who would serve as chair), the Governor s Counsel, Secretary of State, Director of the Division of Budget, and three additional members from the Governor s executive chamber staff.
3 July 7, 2011 Community 3 Graduate Cont. from p. 1 the peninsula, into a victorious force that drove all the way north to the Chinese border. It was here near the Yalu River, at a place nicknamed the Frozen Chosin Reservoir, during the night of November 27, 1950 that tens of thousands of Chinese soldiers overran Ray s position - as well as all Army and Marine units. The temperature that night was forty-five degrees below zero. In memory it was like yesterday, but in years, it was a long time ago! So, this evening, it was very special to be graduating with his grandson, and among such a host of young people who were moving on in their life journeys. In the afternoon, almost a thousand chairs were lined in orderly rows, one row upon another outside Monroe-Woodbury High School. All day before, rain had drenched the area, and on this special day too, the threat was for more of the same. Only hours before the ceremony, and wisely, the word was given to hold graduation indoors. Although skies were a heavy grey outside, everyone seemed happy and anxious as the event began. The gym was bright and the Crusaders purple gowns filled an area that took up more than half the floor. It looked inspiring! Families packed the bleachers on both the main floor and in the upper level. The processional was accompanied by Elgar s Pomp and Circumstances played by the Wind Ensemble and directed by Mr. Richard Regan. Teachers, in their robes sat in the front rows and the graduates behind them. Ms. Bryn Sussman led the assembly in the Pledge of Allegiance which was followed by the Voice Ensemble s most beautiful rendition of our National Anthem under the direction of Dr. David Crone. The program was well executed having no delays, as Principle David Bernsley began with his opening remarks. Senior Class officers came one by one to express their appreciation to teachers, staff and administrators, followed by an awesome salute, again by the Wind Ensemble it was National Emblem composed by E. E. Begley. The Class Officers were Brynn Sussman, President; Angela Esposito, Vice-President; Ashley Lapolla, Secretary; Anish Terala, Treasurer; Rachel Broderick, Senator; Nan Whang, Senator. Jesse Schacher presented the Salutatory address, and Shang Wang, Valedictory. The Voice Ensemble sang I ll be There which was followed by Dr. Michael DiGeronimo s Message to the Graduates. Mr. Hanaburgh received his diploma from Principle David Bernsley who then gave the Presentation of Graduates. Mr. Mehrhof, Superintendent of Schools followed with the Acceptance of Graduates. The diplomas were awarded by members of the Board of Education. Closing remarks and the recessional concluded the special evening. An extraordinary class - I was lucky to be a part of it! Shang Wang, Valedictorian M-W Class 2011 His Address Shang Wang s Valedictory to Class of 2011 Good evening and welcome to Monroe Woodbury High School s 2011 graduation! Four years ago, I attended my first Crusader graduation. The summer sun was setting on the rolling hills, there was a soft breeze blowing the on tassels of the graduates, and you could literally feel the excitement buzzing in the air. And still, I was so, so bored. But that was because I hadn t experienced what those seniors had gone through, what you have all now experienced. I didn t comprehend the effort, the memories, and the work that went into those four years of high school. I certainly realize just how special this day is now. We are all here today to celebrate you, the Class of 2011, and what you have accomplished. In the fall of 2007, we walked in through those front doors as small, nervous freshmen eager to prove ourselves. But we only proved during the first week just how embarrassing it is to walk into the wrong classroom. Multiple times! But we made it through the first year and the freshmen suck chants. We learned that having a class on A after a class on D kills your thighs like no other. We got through Mother Blatt s packets and survived the suspicious stares of the hall monitors. We made it through the SATs, the ACTs, all of the talk about college prep. We worked up the nerve to ask that one person to junior prom. We witnessed the last senior class graduate. And then just like that- we ourselves were seniors, that much closer to graduation. We tore up our last homecoming and pep rally. We rushed to meet college application deadlines and then checked our s every day for any response. Senioritis set in hard. Prom came. Our last day in school passed. The picnic came and went. Months flew by like days. And now we re graduating. So much has changed, so much has happened since freshman year, and it would be impossible for me to fit everything into this speech. But some of us have excelled in athletics, leading Monroe teams to victories day in and day out. A few became section champions and even all- Americans. We had athletes compete in the Special Olympics, bringing home several gold medals. And then there were the select gym class All Stars Steve Donohue- who gave it their all every single period for every single unit to become true champions. Others have found their place in music and arts, showcasing their talents at the Senior Art show, in Hairspray, at the all-eastern music festival, in Rhythm and Rhyme, and the list goes on. And some of us gravitated towards the chess team. Matthew Lee did so with so much passion he shaved a chessboard into the sides of his head to motivate his teammates to victory. That s dedication right there. But most importantly, we have all grown and developed and matured from those freshmen years into the group that sits before me today, one full of class and dignity. Sorry, current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, but you ll have a hard time matching the standard that this class has set. Because when I look out among the faces now, I see not only talent and skill, I also see genuinely good people, people that care, people with heart. And that, on top of the awards, on top of the achievements, on top of the recognition, is what truly makes me proud to be a part of this graduating class. Of course, we would not have been able to even come close to reaching this milestone without the support and help of those around us. The teachers who put in their full effort during class Another year of high school has fl own by, and the Monroe Woodbury Class of 2011 has graduated, an extraordinary class, and I was lucky to be a part of it. We certainly owe a lot of our success to the community, and I would personally like to thank the town as a whole for all the support that you have given us over the years. and still stayed after to help us review for that one subject that we just didn t understand. The entire staff at the high school who weren t content to just teach the curriculum or do just what their job description stated, but instead went above and beyond to show us how to grow into young adults with skills ready for the real world beyond Monroe Woodbury. We would be nothing without friends who were there to make us laugh, to get us through our first break up, to provide a shoulder of support. And there were siblings who annoyed us to no end, but still were there for us in an instant when it was needed. Aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, relatives of all kinds, who we might ve seen every weekend or once every few years but who still all rooted for us, cheering our every move with pride. And parents! You guided us onto that school bus more than thirteen years ago for our first day of kindergarten. You were there at our Little League games, our ballet recitals, and our concerts. You were the ones who made sure Santa Claus visited us every Christmas Eve. You ve watched us shoot past you with growth spurts during our middle school years. You worried when we got our permit and panicked when we first drove alone. You sat through the emotional roller coaster ride that was college applications. And now you re here. Eighteen or so years of joy, frustration, anger, and laughter all lead to these two hours. Take it in, because you deserve this occasion. This is Shang Wang your reward for everything that you ve done for us. Thank you. It is said, Study the past if you would define the future. We will be leaving these now familiar halls, never to step foot in them again as students. But I know we will be ready for whatever life brings us because I have witnessed the past. I have observed it here over the last four years and in this district for the last thirteen years. I mean, I don t know what the future will bring although I am sure there will be huge challenges along the way. Truth is... I m nervous! But I am calmed when I see everything that we have accomplished. I am calmed by how we have taken the best qualities from our faculty and staff, our friends, and our families into our own selves. And I am calmed because I know this is how we will continue to define our futures. Congratulations, Class of We ve made it.

6 6 History Jul 8, 1776 Liberty Bell tolls - announces Declaration of Independence, 225 Years ago On this day in 1776, a 2,000-pound copper-and-tin bell now known as the Liberty Bell rings out from the tower of the Pennsylvania State House (now Independence Hall) in Philadelphia, summoning citizens to the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence. Four days earlier, the historic document had been adopted by delegates to the Continental Congress, but the bell did not ring to announce the issuing of the document until the Declaration of Independence returned from the printer on July 8, As the British advanced toward Philadelphia in the fall of 1777, the bell was removed from the city and hidden in Allentown to save it from being melted down by the British and used to make cannons. After the British defeat in 1781, the bell was returned to Philadelphia, which served as the nation s capital from 1790 to In addition to marking important events, the bell tolled annually to celebrate George Washington s birthday on February 22 and Independence Day on July 4. The name Liberty Bell was first coined in an 1839 poem in an abolitionist pamphlet. Editor s relative gives Bell a Safe Haven at Gerhart s Tavern The Liberty Bell touched the editor s family in 1777 during its move to Allentown. Johann Peter Gerhart s arrival in 1732 from Alsace-Lorraine is celebrated by my father s mother s family, and last year was the 27th annual reunion held near this historical property, the Rising Sun Inn, which was owned by the family until Nearby farmland owned by Peter is still in family hands. Located at Indian Creek, Franconia Township, Pennsylvania, the stone structure today is nestled in the rolling hills bordering Bucks and Montgomery Counties and situated on the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek. Known at the time as Gerhart s Tavern, it was an overnight station stop for the stage coach which traveled from Philadelphia to Allentown. It was in September 1777 that the Liberty Bell was housed overnight in Gerhart s Tavern on its trip to Allentown. Records from the period say: On September 13, 1777, there was great excitement in Bethlehem because of July 7, the retreat of the patriot army from Philadelphia. Then a letter came by express courier from David Rittenhouse announcing that all the military stores of the army, in more than 700 wagons, were being sent north over the Bethlehem Pike. Even the church bells were sent away for safekeeping, and also the bell that has since become a sacred relic, the State House bell, known now as the Liberty Bell. The farm wagon bearing the Liberty Bell broke down in Bethlehem. The entry in a diary under date of September 25, 1777, says: The bells from Philadelphia brought in wagons. The wagon with the State House broke down here, so it had to be unloaded. The other bells went off. In 1751, to commemorate the 50-year anniversary of Pennsylvania s original constitution, the Pennsylvania Provincial Assembly ordered the bell to be constructed. After being cracked during a test, and then recast twice, the bell was hung from the State House steeple in June Rung to call the Pennsylvania Assembly together and to summon people for special announcements and events, it was also rung on important occasions, such as King George III s 1761 ascension to the British throne and, in 1765, to call the people together to discuss Parliament s controversial Stamp Act. With the outbreak of the American Revolution in April 1775, the bell was rung to announce the battles of Lexington and Concord. Its most famous tolling, however, was on July 8, 1776, when it summoned Philadelphia citizens for the first reading of the Declaration of Independence. The question of when the Liberty Bell acquired its famous fracture has been the subject of a good deal of historical debate. In the most commonly accepted account, the bell suffered a major break while tolling for the funeral of the chief justice of the United States, John Marshall, in 1835, and in 1846 the crack expanded to its present size while in use to mark Washington s Birthday. After that date, it was regarded as unsuitable for ringing, but it was still ceremoniously tapped on occasion to commemorate important events. On June 6, 1944, when Allied forces invaded France, the sound of the bell s dulled ring was broadcast by radio across the United States. In 1976, the Liberty Bell was moved to a new pavilion about 100 yards from Independence Hall in preparation for America s bicentennial celebrations. It remains there today and is visited by more than 1 million people each year. Source: 1. History Channel, 2.

Jul 8, 1951 Paris celebrates 2,000th Birthday On this day in 1951, Paris, the capital city of France, celebrates turning 2,000 years old. In fact, a few more candles would ve technically been required on the birthday cake, as the City of Lights was most likely founded around 250 B.C. The history of Paris can be traced back to a Gallic tribe known as the Parisii, who sometime around 250 B.C. settled an island (known today as Ile de la Cite) in the Seine River, which runs through present-day Paris. By 52 B.C., Julius Caesar and the Romans had taken over the area, which eventually became Christianized and known as Lutetia, Latin for mid-water dwelling. The settlement later spread to both the left and right banks of the Seine and the name Lutetia was replaced with Paris. In 987 A.D., Paris became the capital of France. As the city grew, the Left Bank earned a reputation as the intellectual district while the Right Bank became known for business. During the French Renaissance period, from the late 15th century to the early 17th century, Paris became a center of art, architecture and science. In the mid-1800s, Napoleon III hired civic planner Georges-Eugene Hausmann to modernize Paris. Hausmann s designs gave the city wide, tree-lined boulevards, large public parks, a new sewer system and other public works projects. The city continued to develop as an important hub for the arts and culture. In the 1860s, an artistic movement known as French Impression emerged, featuring the work of a group of Paris-based artists that included Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Today, Paris is home to some 2 million residents, with an additional 10 million people living in the surrounding metropolitan area. The city retains its reputation as a center for food, fashion, commerce and culture. Paris also continues to be one of the world s most popular tourist destinations, renowned for such sights as the Eiffel Tower (built in 1889 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution), the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs-Elysees, Notre Dame Cathedral (built in 1163), Luxembourg Gardens and the Louvre Museum, home to Leonardo da Vinci s painting Mona Lisa. Woodbury Gazette Contact Information PO Box 511, Highland Mills, NY Jul 8, 1918 Ernest Hemingway wounded on Italian Front, 93 Years ago On this day in 1918, Ernest Hemingway, an 18-year-old ambulance driver for the American Red Cross, is struck by a mortar shell while serving on the Italian front, along the Piave delta, in World War I. A native of Oak Park, Illinois, Hemingway was working as a reporter for the Kansas City Star when war broke out in Europe in He volunteered for the Red Cross in France before the American entrance into the war in April 1917 and was later transferred to the Italian front, where he was on hand for a string of Italian successes along the Piave delta in the first days of July 1918, during which 3,000 Austrians were taken prisoner. On the night of July 8, 1918, Hemingway was struck by an Austrian mortar shell while handing out chocolate to Italian soldiers in a dugout. The blow knocked him unconscious and buried him in the earth of the dugout; fragments of shell entered his right foot and his knee and struck his thighs, scalp and hand. Two Italian soldiers standing between Hemingway and the shell s point of impact were not so lucky, however: one was killed instantly and another had both his legs blown off and died soon afterwards. Hemingway s friend Ted Brumbach, who visited him in the hospital, wrote to Hemingway s parents that: A third Italian was badly wounded and this one Ernest, after he had regained consciousness, picked up on his back and carried to the first aid dugout. He says he did not remember how he got there, nor that he carried the man, until the next day, when an Italian officer told him all about it and said that it had been voted to give him a valor medal for the act. As Brumbach reported, Hemingway was awarded an Italian medal of valor, the Croce de Guerra, for his service. As he wrote in his own letter home after the incident: Everything is fine and I am very comfortable and one of the best surgeons in Milan is looking after my wounds. Hemingway s experiences in Italy during World War I would become an integral part of his larger-than-life persona, as well as the material for one of his best-loved novels, A Farewell to Arms, which chronicles the love of a young American ambulance driver for a beautiful English nurse on the Italian front during the Great War.
7 July 7, 2011 Community 7 Lend Me A Tenor The Vineyard Comedy Players Present another Summer Show We are doing a comedy that will have audiences in stitches right from the beginning, says play producer and winery owner Jan Palaggi. Once again this summer, live theater will be alive and well as the Vineyard Comedy Players offer their latest presentation, Lend Me A Tenor, a hysterical comedy by playwright Ken Ludwig, under the early evening stars at the Palaia Vineyard s outdoor stage on Route 32 in Highland Mills. For four twilight performances, July 14, 15, 16, and 17, the laughs will be non-stop and the wine will be flowing as the Players, featuring a talented cast of local actors, perform their well-rehearsed chaos, as directed by Rich Aufiero from Cornwall. To set the scene, it is September 8th, 1934, and Cleveland s premiere opera company s producer is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Tickets are sold, the stage is set, and the thirty-piece orchestra is ready. But, it s about to become un disastro gigantesco, because it s three minutes to curtain, and the leading man - the greatest tenor in the world - has gone missing! This is The Vineyard Comedy Player s third production outside on the main event stage at the winery. They have previously performed California Suite by Neil Simon, and last year s smash hit, Rumors. The Vineyard Comedy Players is made up of seasoned actors from all over the Hudson Valley area. The show is being directed by Rich Aufiero, a longtime friend of the Palaggi family (owners of the winery). Sets are once again being designed and built by Tony Ravinsky, who donates his time and energy every year with his time off in the summer from being the choral director at Cornwall High School. The sets are being built by Cornwall High School students who donate their time to help Ravinsky build and paint. Costumes are being designed by recent college graduate and theater major Angela Palaggi, who has grown up performing in and designing for many local shows. Sound is provided by Tim McGuire, without whom it would not be possible to do an outside performance. The Vineyard Comedy Players Lend Me A Tenor is scheduled for four performances at the Palaia Vineyards outdoor stage under the tent on Rt. 32 in Highland Mills chairs are provided. Shows are; Thursday, July 14; Friday, July 15; Saturday, July 16; and Sunday, July 17, at 8 p.m. each evening, although earlier arrival at the vineyard is encouraged. Tickets are $10 for adults, children, and seniors, and are available for pre-purchase in person at the winery or at the door on the day of the show. Note: no reservations will be taken by phone.

8 8 Community Woodbury Firecracker Day Lots of Fun & Classic Cars Central Valley Last year s weather was really sunny and hot, but Woodbury s Firecracker Day this year was warm for sure, but pleasantly so. The Highland Mills Fire Company s 5K Cross-Country Run/Walk began at 8:30 AM. By 11 AM the Street Fair vendors were set up and DJ music by Steve Lopez and the Woodbury Jazz Quartet filled the air. Classic cars were already filling their spaces although their show didn t officially open until noon. Woodbury Community Association grill masters kept dogs, chicken breasts and burgers going all day. Our Woodbury Volunteer EMS Association manned a canopied booth, as did the Historical Society which was staffed by Leslie Rose and Herman Galberd; CV UMC was there with Robin Burkhardt and Pastor Jessica Lynn Anshutz. Also manning booths were Rachel Petrone, Manager of Provident Bank in Highland Mills; Christine owner of Around Back Consignment & Boutique; and the Woodbury Public Library, with Jennifer Bradshaw, Director and backed up by Library Board members. Others included the Republican Committee with Lyn Prestia and Tim Arone, Democratic Committee s booth was supported by James Skoufis, Amidee Haviland, and Carlton Levine. Jeremy and Gretchen Bily s vendor booth was filled with nature s organic scented soaps, and amazing knitted covers his business is Woodberry Basics. Vendors of other crafts and products filled the rest of the area. The Classic Car Show exhibited beautiful restored autos from the past. Mostly they ranged from the late forties to Paul Linderman and his son Paul were early to set up their U.S. Army 2 ½ ton (also known as a six-by ) utility truck. It was a 1970 Kaiser model M35 A2, and it sported a 50 Cal. machine gun above the passenger s seat. Jim Elbert of Highland Mills proudly showed his 1970 ½ Chevy 229 RS (Rally Sport). The McKenzie Motors Inc. flatbed was parked by the DJ displayed all of the trophies on the truck s bed. Glen and his wife Audrey Salvatore, Highland Mills, said that he was an amateur astronomer, demonstrated his Hydrogen Solar Scope through which you could safely observe the sun. Finally, a treat for the kids was the arrival of an emergency service helicopter from Life- Net NY. Kids climbed in one side and were given a brief tour in the crammed space that is just big enough to evacuate accident victims along with care-givers. Pilot Michael Bradley of New Windsor flies the copter out of the Wallkill Airport. He should know how! Mr. Bradley is a 20 year retired Black Hawk copter pilot who has served all over the world, where ever the Army needed me. He said, I like flying when I know I m saving lives, sort of like in the Army. I fly over, survey the terrain, the situation and then let it down to get the injured quickly to a medical facility. Later, as darkness fell, crowds were not disappointed with the splendid fireworks display. Members of the Festival Committee were: Susan Arent, Justin Hunter, Maria Hunter, Robert Hunter, Dan Lux, Carlton Levine, Michael Queenan, James Skoufis, Peter Stabile and Joann Stabile.

9 July 7, 2011 Community 9 Allegro Youth Orchestra reveals strong Classical Training Jazz and Broadway - Mostly Mozartand real Irish The Allegro Youth Orchestra has more than 40 postings on YouTube that demonstrate strong classical training while playing examples of jazz and Broadway with artists from the Broadway Stage, and classical with soloists from Mostly Mozart - and the Orchestra of St. Luke s. Rock with the alternative rock group Pan-a-ce-a, or enjoy Irish traditional with a real Irish band from Pearl River, and oh..., I can go on. But why not go on YouTube yourself and search - Allegro Orchestra Prizgintas. Mr. P or Prizgintas is the founder and current director of this dynamic group. Innovation is only part of the equation: I stress strong classical training like an athletic coach insists upon the basics, like weigh training and calisthenics, explains Prizgintas. One of Allegro s postings on YouTube happens to be the G Major Scale that goes through 13 variations and arpeggios. The posting has been so successful that other directors from Seattle, California and even Korea have requested copies. And yes, he provides these for free to directors upon request. The most recent posting, Allegro Youth Virtual Orchestra: Handel s Passacaglia is another example of a unique concept. It is also produced in partnership with an award-winning recording engineer Phil Bulla who owns and operates Platinum Studios in Monroe. In this posting, nineteen students record their parts in Platinum Studios sound booth independently of each other while listening to a pre-recorded version through their headphones (this keeps the final mix in-sync since everyone will be keeping the same exact tempo). The process is very daunting since you remove the wall of sound that covers everyone in a full rehearsal and expose each student to simply their solo sound. The microphone won t lie and the video places you front and center. To prepare for this challenge, each student creates various recordings on their own either with an mp3 file, CD or cassette tape, and Mr. Prizgintas reviews the results and grades them according to their pitch, rhythm and dynamics - loud and soft. This is quite an extra effort on the part of everyone, but the results are well worth the effort, explains Prizgintas. But why believe Mr. P? Why not take a virtual tour of Mr. P and his students. While you re there, be sure to review the most recent post by searching YouTube - Allegro Youth Virtual Orchestra: Handel s Passacaglia. Awesome Orchestral music by the Allegro Youth Orchestra, founded by Mr. Viktor Prizintas, can be enjoyed on YouTube.

Written by Woodbury s Robert Bob McCue, It tells the story of the coming of the branch and then the abandonment of fourteen miles of it by Conrail in Bob says, I have also included the Erie shortcut from Harriman to Vails Gate, and included is the Erie Graham Line and the Ontario and Western Railroad. He remembers his younger days as he explains nostalgically, I grew up around this branch and walked the entire roadbed from Vails Gate to Greycourt to take pictures after the tracks were removed. Author McCue gives credit to others who helped him, The generosity of the Woodbury Historical society, the Chester Historical Society and the Ontario and Western Historical society, among others, are really who made this book possible.

Patrick Henry is not quoted properly in our present day school texts. Give me liberty or give me death is not exactly all that he said or why! Did you know that 52 of the 55 signers of the Declaration of Independence were orthodox, deeply-committed Christians? The other three all believed in the Bible as the divine truth, the God of scripture, and His personal intervention. It is the same Congress that formed the American Bible Society. Immediately after creating the Declaration of Independence, the Continental Congress voted to purchase and import 20,000 copies of scripture for the people of this nation. Patrick Henry, who is called the firebrand of the American Revolution, is still remembered for his words, Give me liberty or give me death. But in current textbooks the context of these words is deleted. Here is what he said: An appeal to arms and the God of hosts is all that is left us. But we shall not fight our battle alone. There is a just God that presides over the destinies of nations. The battle sir, is not to the strong alone. Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death. These sentences have been erased from our textbooks. Was Patrick Henry a Christian? The following year, 1776, he wrote this It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great Nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religious, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here. Consider these words that Thomas Jefferson wrote on the front of his well-worn Bible: I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus. I have little doubt that our whole country will soon be rallied to the unity of our Creator and, I hope, to the pure doctrine of Jesus also. Consider these words from George Washington, the Father of our Nation, in his farewell speech on September 19, 1796, It is impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible. Of all the dispositions and habits that lead to political prosperity, our religion and morality are the indispensable supporters. Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that our national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. Was George Washington a Christian? Consider these words from his personal prayer book: Oh, eternal and everlasting God, direct my thoughts, words and work. Wash away my sins in the immaculate blood of the lamb and purge my heart by thy Holy Spirit. Daily, frame me more and more in the likeness of thy son, Jesus Christ, that living in thy fear, and dying in thy favor, I may in thy appointed time obtain the resurrection of the justified unto eternal life. Bless, O Lord, the whole race of mankind and let the world be filled with the knowledge of thee and thy son, Jesus Christ. Consider these words by John Adams, our second president, who also served as chairman of the American Bible Society. In an address to military leaders he said, We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and true religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. How about our first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay? He stated that when we select our national leaders, if we are to preserve our Nation, we must select Christians. Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian Nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers. John Quincy Adams, son of John Adams, was the sixth U.S. President. He was also the chairman of the American Bible Society, which he considered his highest and most important role. On July 4, 1821, President Adams said, The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity. Calvin Coolidge, our 30th President of the United States reaffirmed this truth when he wrote, The foundations of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country. In 1782, the United States Congress voted this resolution: The Congress of the United States recommends and approves the Holy Bible for use in all schools. William Holmes McGuffey, author of the McGuffey Reader, was used for over 100 years in our schools with over 125 million copies sold until it was stopped in President Lincoln called him the Schoolmaster of the Nation. Listen to these words of Mr. McGuffey: The Christian religion is the religion of our country. From it are derived our notions on the character of God, on the great moral Governor of the universe. On its doctrines are founded the peculiarities of our free institutions. From no source has the author drawn more conspicuously than from the sacred Scriptures. From all these extracts from the Bible I make no apology. Of the first 108 universities founded in America, 106 were distinctly Christian, including the first, Harvard University, chartered in In the original Harvard Student Handbook, rule number 1 was that students seeking entrance must know Latin and Greek so that they could study the scriptures: Let every student be plainly instructed and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is, to know God and Jesus Christ, which is eternal life, John 17:3; and therefore to lay Jesus Christ as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning. And seeing the Lord only giveth wisdom let every one seriously set himself by prayer in secret to seek it of him (Proverbs 2:3). For over 100 years, more than fifty percent of all Harvard graduates were pastors! It is clear from history that the Bible and the Christian faith, were foundational to our educational and judicial system. However, in 1947, there was a radical change of direction for the Supreme Court. It required ignoring every precedent of Supreme Court ruling for the past 160 years. The Supreme Court ruled in a limited way to affirm a wall of separation between church and State in the public classroom. In the coming years, this led to removing prayer from public schools in Here is the prayer that was banished: Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence on Thee. We beg Thy blessings upon us and our parents and our teachers and our country. Amen. In 1963, the Supreme Court ruled that Bible reading was outlawed as unconstitutional in the public school system. The court offered this justification: If portions of the New Testament were read without explanation, they could and have been psychologically harmful to children. Bible reading was now unconstitutional, though the Bible was quoted 94 percent of the time by those who wrote our Constitution and shaped our Nation and its system of education and justice and government. In 1965, the Courts denied as unconstitutional the right of a student in the public school cafeteria to bow his head and pray audibly for his food. In 1980, Stone vs. Graham outlawed the Ten Commandments in our public schools. The Supreme Court said this: If the posted copies of the Ten Commandments were to have any effect at all, it would be to induce schoolchildren to read them. And if they read them, mediated upon them, and perhaps venerated and obeyed them, this is not a permissible objective. Is it not a permissible objective to allow our children to follow the moral principles of the Ten Commandments? James Madison, the primary author of the Constitution of the United States, said this: We have staked the whole future of our new nation, not upon the power of government; far from it. We have staked the future of all our political constitutions upon the capacity of each of ourselves to govern ourselves according to the moral principles of the Ten Commandments. Today, we are asking God to bless America. But, how can He bless a Nation that has departed so far from Him? Prior to September 11, He was not welcome in America. Most of what you read in this article has been erased from our textbooks. Revisionists have rewritten history to remove the truth about our country s Christian roots. You are encouraged to make copies, and share with others, so that the truth of our nation s history will be told.

Beware of Fly by Night Contractors Phone # Website: wwwbekirovconstruction.com By Dr. Steve Piriano Like many people, I ve been familiar with the expression mind over matter since I was a kid. This phrase has always meant that I can do anything I set my mind to with hard work and perseverance. During the last few years it has also taken on an additional meaning for me. It now also implies that mental and emotional states can often manifest as physical symptoms. I can recall many occasions in my early teens (and even in my twenties) during which I suffered from butterflies in my stomach whenever I would go on a date. Although these symptoms were both distressing and annoying when they occurred, they were nothing more than a physical manifestation of my own anxiety. You ve probably heard of the fight or flight reaction, which occurs when we perceive a threat of possible harm to our physical bodies. A surge of nerve impulses and hormones occurs that increases our heart rate and blood pressure and diverts blood away from our gut and to our muscles. This enables us to deal with the dangerous situation by either fighting or fleeing. This physiological reaction helps us to protect ourselves in the face of physical danger. It is automatic in that there is no thinking required to initiate it. Interestingly enough, the same reaction occurs when we perceive danger in social situations. This could be the threat of being fired from your job, an argument with your spouse, rushing to meet a deadline, worrying about paying the bills or just being in an uncomfortable or threatening social situation-the same outpouring of nerve impulses and hormones and subsequent physiologic changes will occur. Thus, anytime we are faced with significant stress, a fight or flight reaction can occur. Those stomach butterflies that I mentioned were caused by the diversion of blood away from my gut and to my muscles. There are two fundamental points that can be inferred from the above information. First, our bodies will undergo actual physical changes as a direct result of our mental and emotional states. Our very perceptions and thoughts can lead directly to stimulation of nerves and surges of hormones. Our minds truly do affect our bodies. Second, dealing with stress ineffectively will often precipitate a fight or flight reaction. Our modern society of work, deadlines, financial woes and constantly being on the go makes for a constant onslaught of stress. It doesn t take much to put two and two together and figure out that our bodies may be in a near perpetual state of fight or flight. As we have seen, during a fight or flight reaction heart rate and blood pressure both increase in an effort to deal with the situation at hand. Can you see just how easily we can spend large portions of our hectic days walking around with an elevated heart rate and high blood pressure? This is certainly not conducive to maintaining long term good health. One of the hormones released during stress is cortisol, which is one of our stress hormones. Cortisol is a steroid. As you may be aware, steroids act to inhibit the immune system. Thus, constantly reacting adversely to stress can lead to a degree of immune system suppression. Have you ever noticed that you are more likely to catch a cold during times of high stress? Well, there is an actual physiological reason. Yes, our minds are indeed intricately connected to our bodies. I find this fascinating, and I believe that it has so many implications for our overall well being.

14 14 Teen Spotlight/Classified All Night Grad Party A Huge Hit! By Laura Bakst After all the names were called, all the diplomas handed out, all the tassels turned, and caps thrown, Monroe Woodbury High School s graduation festivities were far from over. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of a group of parents, students were able to return to the school for a fun filled night at the All Night Graduation Party. By holding an in school party from 11pm until 4am students were provided with a variety of controlled, safe, and entertaining activities. The theme was a casino night, and the school was beautifully adorned with lights, senior photos of the recent graduates, and other themed decorations. Additionally, there were endless activities to keep the attendees occupied. Perhaps the most exciting event is the hypnotist show, which many anticipate from as early as their freshmen year. Students assembled around midnight in the auditorium to watch about ten of their classmates become hypnotized. In the hour long show, I witnessed friends of mine jump off the stage because they thought it was lava, a football player think he was giving birth, and one girl shake uncontrollably due to her thinking she was extremely dehydrated. In short, despite some original apprehensions, the show was incredible and there is not a doubt in my mind that at least some of those on the stage were completely hypnotized. Additionally, there were many other exciting games to play. Volleyball courts and ping-pong tables were set up, and the gym, where graduation was held just hours earlier, was filled with all sorts of blow up activities. There was a racing obstacle course, bungee run, and several other inflatables. Furthermore, three tarot card readers were also set up, telling students fortunes and advice on their future. The cafeteria held seating and a variety of delicious food options, as well as a photo booth where people could get their picture taken. Moreover, many prizes were given out over the course of the event. Throughout the night there was a drawing going on in which everyone who participated won something. Many students received money, gift cards, and even digital cameras. Toward the end of the party everybody congregated for a final raffle, in which big prizes such as printers, lap tops, money, and dorm room items were given away. Finally, every student in the graduating class was given a Monroe-Woodbury Class of 2011 blanket. The night was a huge success. A large group of students chose to attend, and everyone had a fantastic time. It was a great and creative way to allow the graduates to celebrate and have fun in a safe environment. A giant thank you is due to all the parents who worked so hard throughout the year and that night to coordinate, fundraise, plan, set up, and run the event. The graduates really appreciated it. And of course, congratulations to Monroe Woodbury High School s Class of 2011! Laura Bakst is a graduate of Monroe Woodbury High School.
