FROM:           Kevin Foley, Interim Director of Athletics

On Thursday, October 16th, Suffolk County Community College’s women’s volleyball and women’s soccer teams will participate in the 5th Annual Dig Pink event to raise funds supporting breast cancer education programs and research efforts.  Last year’s event raised over $8,500 and our teams have raised over $22,000 for this cause over the course of the past five years.

There are numerous ways the college community can support this effort.

  • The women’s soccer team will play a game at 4:00 p.m. against their biggest rival, Nassau Community College at the Ammerman Campus field.
  • The women’s volleyball team will play a game at 7:00 p.m., also against Nassau Community College in the Brookhaven Gymnasium on the Ammerman Campus.
  • Prior to the 16th, the Registrar’s offices on the Ammerman and Michael J. Grant campuses, will be accepting donations ranging from $12 to $32 for logo apparel such as tee-shirts, hoodies, hats and beanies, sweatshirts and running jackets.
  • In lieu of admission, donations will be accepted at the door on the night of the event (10/16) or can be mailed in advance as follows: Checks should be made payable to the to the Suffolk Community College Association and mailed to Joseph Kosina, Athletics Office, Brookhaven Gymnasium, 533 College Road in Selden, NY 11784.  Donations are tax deductible.  As part of the evening’s fundraising, the Athletics Department will also hold a gift basket raffle.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Side-Out Foundation, which was established in 2004 to unite players and coaches to work toward the common goal of advancing breast cancer awareness, education and patient services.  Through various events, the Side-Out Foundation raises funds to donate toorganizations that support the ideal of a cancer-free world.

Suffolk County Community College Professor Tom Clavin ’74 on NYT Best Sellers List

Noted Sag Harbor author, journalist, English professor and Suffolk County Community College graduate (Class of 1974) Tom Clavin has earned a spot on The New York Times Best Sellers List this month.

Clavin’s The Heart of Everything That Is, co-written with Bob Drury, is a biography of Red Cloud, the influential Sioux leader. The book examines the life of Red Cloud and his military prowess as well as the Plains Indians’ changing way of life in the 1850s and ’60s. The book appears in the number 10 position on The New York Times Print Paperback Best Sellers, non fiction. It is the book’s first week on the list. The list will be published on September 21.

Clavin and Drury’s fiery narrative, fueled by contemporary diaries and journals, newspaper reports, eyewitness accounts, and meticulous first-hand sourcing, is a stirring chronicle of the conflict between an expanding white civilization and the Plains Indians who stood in its way. The Heart of Everything That Is not only places the reader at the center of this remarkable epoch, but finally gives the great warrior-chief Red Cloud the modern-day recognition he deserves.

Tom Clavin was a contributing reporter to The New York Times for 15 years, has contributed more than 200 articles to regional and national magazines, including Smithsonian, Manhattan Magazine, Men’s Journal and others. He has written 15 non-fiction books on subjects as diverse as sports, the Vietnam War and the Golden Age of Las Vegas.

Clavin resides in Sag Harbor and teaches English at Suffolk County Community College’s Ammerman Campus in Selden.

Mob to Put Hit on Ticks And Other Pests!

FOWL

These frenetic balls of fluff, Guinea Fowl keets, will grow into pest-eating machines by the time they are released on Suffolk County Community College’s Eastern Campus in Riverhead next March.

The new brood  — about 30 in all — will eat ants, spiders, weed seeds, and ticks, among other insects and pests, when grown and roaming the Riverhead campus.

Suffolk has had guinea fowl on the Eastern Campus for many years. The new group of keets will grow up to replace a mob of fowl whose numbers have dwindled due to predation and age.

About Guinea Fowl:

• Young Guinea Fowl are called keets, and a group of guinea fowl is called a mob

• Guinea Fowl are a social species, living in flocks of up to 25 birds that roost communally

• The Guinea Fowl has a long history of domestication for consumption of its eggs and meat and, more recently it has been used for pest control, such as to control the tick population to curb the spread of lyme disease

• Guinea Fowl are generally terrestrial. They are prone to run rather than fly when alarmed, but are agile and powerful flyers that can hover and fly backwards if necessary.

Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay explained that using the Guinea Fowl to control pests is best.

“Natural pest control is less expensive than buying and applying pesticides, and it’s safer for our students, faculty, staff, the natural wildlife and the environment,” President McKay said.

Suffolk’s Eastern Campus is situated in Suffolk’s Pine Barrens and home to red fox, deer, wild turkeys, raccoons and other indigenous species.
