South Country Central Tricks and Treats 176

Throughout the South Country Central School District, students have been preparing for Halloween.  The Bellport High School Student Council held its Safe Trick or Treat program for students at Frank P. Long Intermediate School and Brookhaven, Kreamer Street and Verne W. Critz elementary schools. Dressed in Halloween costumes, the high school students visited classrooms where they gave tips for a safe Halloween. Some of the tips included abstaining from eating unwrapped candy, never entering a stranger’s home, staying in big groups and having parents check candy before eating it.

At each of the elementary schools, the PTA held pumpkin picking activities in the back of each schoolyard. Classes were escorted to the patch by hayride where they chose their favorite orange gourds.

The week commenced with the community’s stroll down Trick or Treat Street, held at Bellport High School on Oct. 25. Students participated in activities in each of the themed classrooms, ventured down the haunted and scary hallway and grabbed handfuls of candy as they modeled their costumes for peers.

Town Demolishes “Super Storm Sandy” House 174

On November 12th, Councilman Neil Foley was on hand for the demolition of a “Super Storm Sandy” house at 2 South Breeze Drive in Patchogue. The house, located on property along the Great South Bay, experienced significant damage during the powerful storm that hit Long Island on October 29, 2012. Approximately 100,000 residences on Long Island were severely damaged, including 2,000 that were rendered uninhabitable. The demolition debris was later carted away and the property will be left in its natural state.

Councilman Foley said, “The south shore of Brookhaven was impacted hard by Super Storm Sandy and we are still recovering seven years after that catastrophic event. I thank the Town of Brookhaven Law Department for their efforts to finally rid the neighborhood of this eyesore.”
