The video over, the children trot down to the computing suite for the morning's maths lesson, focusing on time-telling. Each group of children has a worksheet, which explains a small part of the process. "This enables me to provide each child with a challenge," says Evelyn-Rahr.

These days, Stanley Pine, an owner of Hampton Hills Golf & Country Club in Riverhead, is in Rahr's way -- so Rahr is fighting in court to get the respect he feels he deserves.
