Brookhaven Highway Department Offers Free Child Safety Seat Check

Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel Losquadro (R) is hosting a free child safety seat check Tuesday, Jan. 21, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Coram Fire Department, 303 Middle Country Road, Coram. The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office, along with certified technicians from the Brookhaven Highway Department, will be on hand to inspect car seats and make sure children are riding in the right car seats for their age and size as they grow. “In passenger cars, child safety seats reduce the risk of fatal injury by 71 percent for infants and by 54 percent for toddlers,� Losquadro said. “Many parents and caregivers believe they know how to use the correct child restraints for their children, but these restraints are frequently used incorrectly. I am proud to provide this free car seat inspection to teach parents and caregivers how to identify, choose and correctly install the right car seat for their child’s age and size.� The child safety seat check is funded, in part, by the National Highway Traffic Safety H

Animal Rescuer Provides New Experience for Cat Lovers BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Adopting a pet can be a challenging undertaking, where soon-to-be pet owners are potentially committing to years of caring for a furry friend. When it comes to adopting a cat, animal rescuer Jennifer Rose Sinz is working to make the experience a little easier. Sinz and her husband, Bill, are the owners of A Kitten Kadoodle Coffee Cafe in Selden. The cafe has been open since July 2019 and has been a dream that Sinz has been working on for a few years. Sinz said it was 2015 when she first heard of a cat cafe in Japan. She mentioned the idea to a rescue organization she was working with at the time, but the organizers weren’t too keen on the idea. So, she started researching on her own. She described the Selden cat cafe as different from others that have popped up on Long Island. In addition to beverages and snacks being served, visitors can also order cold and hot meals. It is also the first cat cafe to serve vegetarian options. With a glass wall between the cafe and the cats’ quarters, guests can see the animals relaxing in their temporary home filled with couches,

chairs and toys while they eat. For a fee of $5, visitors can go into the cat room for an unlimited time and socialize with the felines. The fee is good all day, so prospective pet owners can take some time out and come back later. As an animal rescuer who has owned pets her whole life, Sinz, who also runs All About Pets Rescue, said it’s important for people to have ample time with an animal before adopting. Limiting that time, like other businesses or shelters may do, doesn’t make sense to her. “How are you supposed to get to know a pet if you’re interested in adopting,” she said. “I want them to get to know the personality.” Her advice is simple. “Sit down, relax, get to know the personality of the animal before making a commitment of 15 to 20 years,” she said. At the cafe, Sinz offers children workshops and yoga classes. She said the workshops and classes give people a chance to spend time with the cats, even if they have a family member who is allergic. Visitors to the establishment can find cats of all ages who have been in various situations, including being abandoned and abused. Sinz said she prefers to take in older cats so they will have a second chance at life. She also never turns down senior adoptees who may be interested in

a cat as she said owning an animal is therapeutic and keeps people energetic. Her husband, Bill Sinz, thought it was an interesting concept when she first brought it up to him, and considers her saving the cats a “noble fight.” “Her love for the animals is amazing,” the

husband said. “I hope other people appreciate what she’s doing and come here and share it with her.” Lauren Sharp is one of those who have appreciated Sinz’s work. One day, during a stressful day at her job in Selden, she stopped by the cafe during lunch to pet the felines. That visit led her to stop by often and eventually to adopt a 1½-year-old cat she named Sylvester, due to his similarities to the Looney Tunes character. Even though she grew up with a dog and birds in her family’s home, Sylvester was the first pet she adopted on her own. Sharp said she loved the chance to get to know the personalities of the animals. Allergic to cats when she was younger, she didn’t have much experience with them. She said she had checked out another cat cafe in Sayville, but Sylvester stuck with her because he was so relaxed when she and a friend would come to visit. When it came to the adoption process, Sharp said it was smooth from start to finish, and Sinz had all of Sylvester’s medical records ready to go. “It’s a great place,” Sharp said. “I think Jennifer is very sweet and really cares for all the cats.” Cat lovers can find the cafe at 600 Middle Country Road, Suite C&D, Selden. For more information, call 631-846-7389.

Nation Long Island Responds to Escalating Conflict Between U.S. and Iran BY DAVID LUCES AND KYLE BARR DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM, KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

The assassination of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani in a U.S. airstrike in Iraq three days into the new year sent shock waves nationally and globally. In response, Iran has threatened to retaliate. For people on the North Shore, it has meant a period of uncertainty and anxiety. As the fallout from the attack continues to make headlines, locals are left wondering what will be the outcome to the posturing and threats from both the U.S. and Iran. Bernard Firestone, a professor of Political Science at Hofstra University, said there has already been conflict between the two nations, including Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ordering attacks on American military targets directly, rather than through allied militias, as it has done so in the past. On Tuesday, Jan. 7, Iran launched missiles at two separate U.S. military bases in Iraq, though officials said there were no American or Iraqi casualties. National newspapers reported the Iranian foreign minister said they had “concluded” attacks on American forces, adding Above, mourners march in Iran after Qassim Suleimani was killed in a U.S. airstrike Jan. 3; right, the U.S. military they would step back from escalating into a war. recruitment office in Selden.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump American civilians, though of course there are (R) called on other western countries, who have differences today. “When the rhetoric is sometimes over the top, largely condemned the Iranian rocket attacks, to defy Iran, and announced his intent to install what that can do to the other side is the Iranian regime has to respond in kind,” Fritz said. new sanctions on the country. At home, planning also begun, but for “Over the past two weeks the U.S. has responded more forcefully to attacks by Iraqi potential attacks to the U.S., New York City militia allied with Iran, including the killing of Mayor Bill de Blasio and city police announced Soleimani,” Firestone said. “So, we are already they would be going on high alert Jan. 3 fearing any kind of retaliation from Iran. in armed conflict with Iran.” The Suffolk County Police Department said Paul Fritz, an associate professor of in a statement that it has a robust Political Science from Hofstra, and long-standing homeland said the missile strikes were security program, which now a “somewhat surprising” includes our SCPD Shield escalation of hostilities, and program in partnership with appear to be a direct challenge NYPD Shield. They also said to the U.S. military, and a further there is currently no credible escalation of strong rhetoric. threat to Suffolk County. “The Iranian regime can’t With the U.S. military be seen as folding to an outside at a state of readiness, local power with an attack like last recruiting centers on the week and decided it had to North Shore said they couldn’t do something big to maintain comment to the media about legitimacy, given strong nationalistic feelings following — Bernard Firestone whether they are seeing any change in recruitment numbers. the killing of Soleimani,” he said. Lisa Ferguson, chief of media relations Fritz said there is always a chance, however small, that armed conflict can spark between for the U.S. Army Recruiting Command, said the two countries, most likely through an they have not seen much of a difference. “At this point we have not seen an impact unsanctioned expression of military force that escalates into a full-scale war. America’s past on our ability to recruit, and too many variables wars against Spain and its entrance into World exist to draw a comparison to previous War I started much in that way, specifically situations,” she said.

‘We are already in armed conflict with Iran’

The days after the Iranian general’s death have been a roller coaster. Residents opinions are split over whether Suleimani’s killing was a necessary act, or a way of painting a target on America’s back. “I think it was a necessary evil,” said Lake Grove resident Patrick Finnerty. “The man [Suleimani] was threatening people, threatening us.” During a 2019 Veterans Day ceremony in Greenlawn, Lenny Salvo, a Vietnam War veteran had one message he wanted the public to know: “Stop war.” “For me it’s not about politics,” he said. “All I see is the harm that it is going to do to people.” In the days that have now passed, with tensions escalating and Iran potentially returning to build nuclear bombs, Salvo said his position has changed. He said he’s supporting the president. “If there’s going to be a conflict, it’s better now [than when they have a nuclear weapon],” he said. Groups nationwide are already planning

protests. On Jan. 9 at 3:30 p.m., the North Country Peace Group is planning a protest at the corner of Route 112 and Route 347 in Port Jefferson Station against any further war in the Middle East. If anything, the threat of attack to New York has stirred harrowing memories of 9/11. Almost 20 years later, the memory of that day’s events has filtered down into the blood of those who witnessed it. Port Jefferson Village mayor, Margot Garant, shared memories of that fateful day at the village meeting Jan. 6. On Sept. 11, 2001, the trains were down, cars jammed the highways and the Bridgeport to Port Jefferson ferry was one of the very few means for people to get off the Island. Garant said she remembered cars backed up all the way up East Broadway and beyond for days. At the meeting, she said she will speak with code enforcement and the fire department in case any such crisis should happen again. “It could be a chemical weapon, it could be a bomb, so many things could happen,” the mayor said. “If I’m not thinking about that, I would be negligent … you have a number of people saying they want to take revenge — that’s not normal — you’ve got to be prepared.” The fear of home terrorism isn’t unfounded, though the experts said any kind of terrorism linked directly to Iran could provoke a full-scale war, something they don’t want. Firestone said that if there were to be terrorist-type attacks, it will more likely be launched at allied or American targets in the home region. Though statistics say one is more likely to get struck by lightning than be involved in a terrorist attack, people from New York City and Long Islanders have a unique view and anxiety about any such attack. After the birth of ISIS in Iraq and Syria, the western world saw a slew of what was considered “lone wolf” terrorists, or people who conduct violence without the direct support and resources of any one group. These, Fritz said, are less likely in this case, since there is no one specific ideology such as seen with ISIS calling for such attacks. Much depends on what Iran’s next step will be, experts said, and though a full-scale conflict is unlikely, Fritz said it begets people to be informed and to ask questions of one’s local elected representatives. “Stay informed, but don’t turn this into something all-consuming,” he said. Leah Chiappino, Rita J. Egan and Donna Deedy all contributed reporting.

Suffolk Sees Decrease in Fatal Opioid Overdoses, According to Annual Report

BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM The opioid epidemic has hit Long Island hard over the past few years, but according to an annual county report, fatal opioid-related deaths have decreased significantly over the past year. The Suffolk County Heroin and Opiate Epidemic Advisory Panel’s 2019 Report released Jan. 2 found that opioid deaths in 2019 were projected at 283, which was an approximate 25.5 percent decrease from the 2018 total of 380. “We are moving in the right direction,” said Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker (D-Mount Sinai), the chair of the panel, at the Jan. 2 press conference in Hauppauge. “The opioid crisis is costing Long Island upward of $8 billion a year in medical costs … that’s $22 million a day. Not only do we have to address the addiction issue, we have to also address mental health.” The 127-page report compiled by the 29-member panel highlights that the decreased numbers can be attributed to the increased use of Narcan, a drug that reverses the effects of overdoses. Other highlights from the previous year includes the panel collaborating to help open a DASH Center, a 24/7 resource center for individuals in search of treatment and resources located at 90 Adams Ave., Hauppauge. The officials also purchased a mass spectrometer, a device that detects and breaks down the chemical compounds of drugs. The device is used to help track where drugs are coming from, making it easier to identify dealers. Geraldine Hart, Suffolk police commissioner, said the force is focusing on addressing the drug dealer situation. “We have seen a decrease in opiate usage but that is not enough,” she said. “We have a strategy that is taking hold, it involves enforcement, prevention, education and treatment.” The panel’s report also lists resources for residents, including a number of counseling programs, agencies, drug treatment courts and law enforcement initiatives like Sharing Opioid Analysis & Research (SOAR). The panel was created in 2017 in response to the growing opioid and substance abuse epidemic in Suffolk County and across the nation. While deaths have decreased, the number of overdoses increased 140 percent from 71 to 170. While members of the panel said the decrease in number of fatal overdoses is a great sign, the increasing number of overdoses not resulting in death is something that requires more investigation. Jeffery Reynolds, president of the Family and Children’s Association, said the new data is encouraging but stressed that more needs to be done.

“These gains can sometimes be precarious — it took a long time for opioids to brew in this region, we were slow to respond in the region and nation, and we paid the price for it,” he said. “We gave heroin a 10-year head start. The last thing we want to do is declare victory prematurely.” Reynolds said there is still a need for a DASH/recovery center on the east end of Long Island and that panel wouldn’t stop working until “the overdose number is at zero.” William “Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport), Suffolk County legislator and chair of the health committee, said it is also important to make sure the medical community is part of the solution. He mentioned there needs to be more research on genetic predisposition and environmental triggers relating to drug use. “There’s a lot of work to be done but this is a major step [in the right direction],” Spencer said. Going into 2020, the panel will focus on addressing the following areas: the growing vaping epidemic, early education initiatives, childhood trauma intervention, possible marijuana legislation, the effects of recent bail reform laws, establishing a recovery high school, continuing overdose prevention discussions with the Metropolitan Transit Authority and Long Island Rail Road, increasing prescriber education, reducing the stigma of addiction and mental illness and collaborating with the Native American Advisory Board and establishing a youth committee. Anker said collectively the panel is trying to be as productive as possible. “It [the epidemic] is always changing and evolving,” she said. “The ability for law enforcement to work with the medical community, education [professionals] to work with advocates — this cross pollination is so vital in making sure this panel is successful.” Contact the DASH Center at 631-952-3333.

State’s Bail Reform Bill Causes Controversy in Suffolk County Sheriff, Corrections Officers Say Judges Need Discretion BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Depending on who you ask, New York State’s new bail reform is either halting an institution that punished the poor, or it is allowing alleged criminals to return to and terrorize local neighborhoods. Back in 2018, after Democrats gained control of both state legislative houses, bail reform became a priority issue for multiple Dems in the State Legislature, with the bail reform coming in as an addendum to the state budget bill. The reform forces judges to release alleged perps without bail for multiple misdemeanors and what are considered nonviolent felony charges. Over the last few months, on judges’ orders, jails across the state have been releasing inmates who fall under the list of bail-less crimes. In an interview Monday, Sheriff Errol Toulon Jr. (D), whose office oversees the jails in Suffolk County, said approximately 301 inmates have already been released from Suffolk custody over the past month leading up to the law’s enactment. This comes after court orders from judges across the state. He added there is another expected 10 to 15 inmates that will be released this month. Proponents of bail reform have long argued the previous system effectively taxed poor defendants for accused crimes. They argued that people and their families who could not afford bail would languish in jail until their court date, such as the case of Bronx teenager Kalief Browder, who was stuck in Rikers Island prison for three years, unable to pay the $3,000 bail price until 2013 when he was released due to lack of evidence. He later committed suicide. Bail costs can range from a few hundred to tens of thousands of dollars and are determined by individual judges. People can also make use of a bail bondsman, but fees for those can still be several thousand, plus the money upfront to ensure a person meets their requisite court dates. A report by John Jay College of Criminal Justice of the originally proposed bail reforms said that if enacted reforms were around in 2018, there would have been 20,349 more individuals

in New York City released without bail, a cumulative amount worth nearly $200 million to the state. In 2018, 105,161 cases resulted in pretrial release without bail. In Suffolk County, the number of people who were released from jail in 2019 after bail was paid was 1,350, according to the sheriff’s office. This is compared to the total of 7,510 discharged from jail that year. Leading state Democrats have said the reforms are long overdue, and specifically target nonviolent offenses. Advocates pointed out that poor people unable to make bail can easily lose jobs if they’re not available or stuck in jail, and that those who have to pay for bail on a limited income, even for minor offenses, might be forced to use funds they would have used for rent or even food. Criminal justice reform advocates say the critics are unnecessarily stoking fears. In a statement, Donna Lieberman, executive director of the New York American Civil Liberties Union, said the new reforms are just a step on the path toward overall prison reforms. “Thousands of New Yorkers who are presumed innocent of the misdemeanor and nonviolent felony charges they face will no longer be forced to sit in jail awaiting trial,” her statement read. However, the law enforces no cash bail for several offenses that critics have called overtly aggressive. James Quinn, Queens assistant district attorney, released a list of laws judges cannot set bail to, including aggravated vehicular manslaughter, several types of drug sale crimes and even lesser counts of arson. Toulon said he has disagreed with the new bail reforms, especially over the list of crimes people are made to be released. He mentioned one inmate who was just recently released on a partially secured bond of $40,000 out of a $400,000 bail order, without a bail bondsman. The individual, he said, had been accused of rape in the first degree of a child, and had a past history of sex crimes. He said any sort of new bail legislation should give judges more jurisdiction over determining bail. “The biggest thing with this legislation is to give judges back discretion — they can look at criminal history, if they are mentally ill or have a serious substance abuse issue,” he said. State legislators are divided on party lines over the new bail reform. A delegation of Republican state reps from Long Island gathered Dec. 31 to voice their opposition. State Sen. John Flanagan (R-East Northport), the senate minority leader, called the new law “unconscionable,” adding the opposing party has “abandoned crime victims, law enforcement and the public in favor of criminals.” The delegation noted two criminal cases including one where a woman allegedly

assaulted three Jewish women, just one of several during a citywide spree of anti-Semitic attacks during the eight days of Hanukkah. She was arrested again the following day for another assault charge. The law allows for no cash bail on offenders who commit assault without serious injury, and the new bail laws have been enforced since late 2019. State Sen. Ken LaValle (R-Port Jefferson) said the new law goes against common sense. “Judges should have discretion in weighing the potential danger of releasing someone who could have violent tendencies or constitutes a real threat to our community,” LaValle said. Law enforcement groups have also vocalized their frustrations with the bill. Louis Viscusi, union president of the Suffolk County Correction Officers Association, said the law doesn’t just force cashless bail for nonviolent offenders, but for drug dealers, sex offenders and gang members. He added he saw Suffolk County actually using the system in the way it was meant to, with the county corrections facility including 24-hour medical care and a space for drug and alcohol addiction. Within the facilities in both Yaphank and Riverhead, he said, inmates could come down from their high and make more informed decisions once or if they are released on bail. Without it, those same people might be out on the street making the same decisions that got them arrested in the first place. “A lot of people commit crimes to help fuel that habit,” he said. “At [a corrections facility] they could detox and could make better decisions. This new bail reform removes those options.” For decades, New York judges were supposed to consider only risk of flight when determining bail, not public safety or safety of the individual.

The new law encourages a supervised release program, where municipalities are meant to keep in touch with those accused. Toulon echoed Viscusi’s comments, adding his term has focused on giving inmates transferable skills such as plumbing or work with HVAC for when they return to society. He added the new law presents issues for people who may need added protection, such as women who were arrested for crimes, but were subdued in human and sex trafficking schemes. Women who are trafficked are often forcefully addicted to drugs to keep them under control. Proponents of the new law point to New Jersey, which has had a similar bail reform bill since 2017, and which a court report showed that while jail populations waned, people still were showing up for their assigned court dates. Unlike Jersey, New York did not have a three-year window between when the law was passed and enacted. Though Republican officials have looked to paint the issue as a party split, some Democrats have proposed changes to the existing bail reform law. State Sen. Jim Gaughran (D-Northport), along with Sen. Monica Martinez (D-Brentwood) introduced legislation back in June 2019 that would expand the list of qualifying offenses that judges can determine pretrial requirements, to include assault, manslaughter, sex crimes including against children, terrorism-related charges, all class-A felony drug-related crimes and bribery offenses involving public officials. The bill was introduced but could not be taken up until the State Legislature reconvened on Jan. 8. “When an individual poses a clear danger to public safety, an unbiased judicial expert must have the discretion to choose whether or not to release them without bail,” Gaughran said in a statement back in June.

Veteran, Doctors Announce Blood Drive Inspired by Life-Saving Surgery BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Stony Brook University Hospital doctors and staff members joined a Marine veteran to get a head start on National Blood Donor Month, which runs through January. At a Dec. 23 press conference at the hospital, Al Kirby, 52, announced a blood drive to show his gratitude to SBUH doctors and staff members. The Shirley resident’s life was saved Christmas Day 2018 at SBUH after 10 hours of surgery where 27 units of blood were needed. Kirby’s doctors, wife, children, friends and family members joined him for the announcement. “Today is a good reminder of how we can all join together in turning a catastrophic event into a remarkable get together with a lot of potential to save numerous lives,” said Dr. Henry Tannous, co-director of the Stony Brook University Heart Institute and chief of the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery. According to SBUH officials, one blood donation can potentially save three lives. “This crucial act of kindness will allow more families like the Kirbys to spend more holidays together,” Tannous said. Kirby was loading up his car with gifts after a visit to his in-law’s house when he felt an intense stabbing pain in his chest, a rapid heartbeat and a burning sensation in his throat.

His wife, Dawn Kirby, called 911 and asked the emergency responders to bring her husband to SBUH. After the press conference, his wife said she credits the doctors and those who donated blood for saving her husband’s life and is grateful for his recovery. “Every day is like Christmas,” she said. Emergency department providers and the Heart Institute’s Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory team ruled out a coronary blockage and discovered Kirby had a severe aortic dissection. It took seven hours in the operating room for doctors to repair the rupture of his main aortic vessel. The procedure also prevented further dissection. The seven-hour operation was followed by another three hours to stop the internal bleeding. Tannous said the medical team didn’t let their guard down and pushed on until they found a diagnosis. For the operation, he said medical staff members had to leave their families abruptly, and the cardiovascular operating room team worked tirelessly through the night. “A 9 hour and 52 minutes surgery is surely a test of what’s humanly possible,” Tannous said. The doctor said the blood bank was a “powerful ally” that had the operating room team’s backs. He added that if one link was missing in the system, the operation wouldn’t have been as successful as it was. Half of those who suffer from the same medical condition

Dads Bring Joys of Star Wars to Children Pediatric patients at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital received a surprise visit from a cast of “Star Wars” characters Dec. 26. Volunteers from “Star Wars” groups dressed in full cinematic costumes and visited children at their bedsides. The Three Village Dads Facebook group helped organize the event in collaboration

with the Tri-State DroidBuilders, Saber Guild–Endor Temple, Rebel Legion–Echo Base and 501st Legion Empire City Garrison. In 2019, the Three Village Dads hosted a barbecue with 200 people that raised $12,000 for Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. — Photos from Stony Brook Medicine

die within 24 hours. Dr. Puja Parikh, interventional cardiologist and co-director of the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement Program at SBU Heart Institute, said that, since the surgery, she has been working with Kirby on controlling his blood pressure and he is doing well. Uncontrolled blood pressure and underlying aortic aneurysms are risk factors of the condition, even though it’s not known what caused the veteran’s medical emergency. Kirby said he considers the staff members like family.

“To me, the doctors are gods here, and the staff are beyond angels, because of you I’m alive, and I thank all of you for donating blood, which allowed someone like me ... to be here speaking today,” Kirby said. After the press conference, the veteran’s family and the Stony Brook Medicine team members headed to the blood bank to donate, and Tannous was the first to roll up his sleeves. For more information on how to donate to the Stony Brook Blood Bank, call 631-4443662 or visit www.stonybrookmedicine.edu/ patientcare/bloodbank.

Newfield 59 Copiague 40

Wolverines Notch First Win of Season BY BILL LANDON DESK@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Newfield searching for that first League III victory made short work out of visiting Copiague, winning the game, 59-40, at home Jan. 4. Eighth-grader Raiyah Reid led the way for the Wolverines throwing down five field goals, two triples and four free throws for a team high 20 points. Sophomore Gina Oliveira sank a pair of 3-pointers and three from the line

for nine points, and Chinelle Nelson, a junior, banked eight. The win lifts Newfield to 1-2 in league and 6-2 overall. Newfield was back in action when they hit the road Jan. 8 to take on crosstown rival Centereach. Results were not yet available at press time. Photo clockwise from above left, Newfield senior Madison Roman comes down with the rebound; Megan Spina drives the baseline for the Wolverines; Oliveira lets a 3-pointer fly; Nelson sets up the play; and Spina scores. — Photos by Bill Landon

Editorial

Letters to the Editor

People are scared. You hear it walking down the aisle in the supermarket. You hear it in chatting with co-workers. You hear it with your relatives at the dinner table or over the phone. With the threat of war looming, everybody everywhere wants to know: Will we be safe? What’s going to happen next? After President Donald Trump (R) ordered the assassination of the Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani last Friday, Jan. 3, the world has been reeling in a vortex of panic and debilitating fear. Iran has said there will be retaliation, and the president has said he will respond to the response. That rhetoric has escalated, with Iran canceling all hopes of a nuclear deal and Iraq moving to remove all U.S. troops from its country. Meanwhile, Trump has said he would even consider bombing cultural sites in Iran as a response — something the International Criminal Court has called a war crime in the past. As Iran held a funeral for the slain general, with many thousands of mourners in the streets shouting “death to America,” the Pentagon has asked amphibious forces to be ready to support ground-based operations in that country. War, huh, what is it good for? The nation’s armed forces stand ready and, for what seems like only an eye blink from the last war, young men and women may yet again be asked to serve overseas. One of our reporters encountered a young recent high school graduate at the checkout register in a local grocery store who recently signed up to serve in the military. What was his opinion of the situation? He shrugged his shoulders and said, “I don’t know.” After a pause, he added, “We do what we have to do.” In June of last year, CBS TV’s “60 Minutes” ran an interview by Lesley Stahl with 99-year-old Ben Ferencz, the last living prosecutor of the Nuremberg trials. He was also at the head of establishing the International Criminal Court at The Hague in the Netherlands. Ferencz fought in World War II and had seen some of the bloodiest battles of the Western Front, including the Normandy Invasion and the Battle of the Bulge. During the interview with “60 Minutes,” he gave a very specific opinion on war. “War makes murderers out of otherwise decent people,” he said. “All wars, and all decent people.” Whatever your opinion, whether Suleimani had to die to protect American lives, or whether the U.S. has committed itself pointlessly to another potential war in the Middle East, the common feeling is anxiety. We at TBR News Media feel the best way to live in such times is to ultimately stay informed. We ask people not to jump to conclusions. Take the time read the news and watch TV with a critical eye. Avoid posting rumors, propaganda or unverified info to Facebook and other social media sites. Perhaps something worse than being uninformed is misinformed, or to be purposefully led astray. Rely on facts that are verifiable to its original source. Consider the opinions of people with first-hand accounts, or named reliable sources with expertise. Some people like using fact-checking sites such as Snopes.com. We also suggest reading Glenn Kessler’s fact-checking blog in the Washington Post, both of whom are largely known for being nonpartisan. Please, to all our readers, stay informed, stay aware and stay safe.

In my research lab, there’s no such thing as partisan data. Scientists are trained to study the facts, test the findings and produce the most accurate information. Sometimes, the facts differ from what we thought going in, but our hypothesis doesn’t change the facts — the facts change the hypothesis, as we try to understand what’s really happening. The recent interview by U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin [R-Shirley] with TBR shows at best a refusal to look at facts and at worst a willingness to lie to his constituents about the actions of the president. Zeldin repeatedly refused to answer the questions posed to him by the TBR editorial board, including when he was presented with the well-established facts regarding the

What a treat to read your Dec. 26 issue, with well-deserved tributes to more than a dozen individuals and groups honored as TBR’s 2019 People of the Year. While I know firsthand the dedication and creativity of Donna Smith and

‘What Is It Good For?’ No Such Thing as Partisan Data solicitation of help by President Donald Trump [R] from a foreign government while withholding congressionally authorized aid. Zeldin’s only response was that he disagreed with the premise of each question. Throughout the impeachment proceedings, the facts have been corroborated by career officials’ testimony and documents. The facts remain undisputed by the White House or the president’s allies, including Zeldin. These facts are uncomfortable for all of us. Nobody goes to Congress to impeach a president — but when a president’s actions are incompatible with democratic governance, it’s the only option. A representative should be able to look at the evidence and draw conclusions,

comfortable or uncomfortable, without regard to their own ideology. Time after time, Zeldin has shown he is unwilling to view issues with an open mind, put country over party or hold power to account. While Zeldin has spent his time on Fox News attacking Democrats, he has refused to sign bills to restore SALT deductions or lower prescription drug prices. He has attempted to erode gun safety legislation, reduce safety protections for clean water and decrease access to high quality, affordable health care. It’s time that we demand, as residents of Suffolk County, that our representative fights for us, rather than defend a corrupt president. Nancy Goroff Stony Brook

Getting People Out of Their Cars It’s exciting to see action toward taking the diesel out of the Long Island Rail Road. But of the 36 percent of greenhouse gases for which transportation is responsible, fully 80 percent comes not from diesel rail but from passenger cars. In order to meet the critical goal of fully electrifying the transportation sector, we must get people not only out of their cars by improved mass transit — think electric

buses as well as electric and improved train service — and town planning that puts people within walking distance of that mass transit, but through expanded charging infrastructure and incentives to make owning an electric vehicle viable, in addition to fun — ask any electric car driver — and cheap over the long term because of the minimal maintenance costs. Implementing pollution fees is another obvious policy to

“drive” electric vehicle adoption. We must call upon Gov. Andrew Cuomo [D] to produce aggressive, ambitious action in the transportation sector to support his overall climate goal of 100 percent netzero emissions by 2050. We can’t get there without taking the internal combustion engine off the road. Alexa Marinos West Babylon

Amusing Personal Messages Emblazoned on T-shirts

A

mid the delightful sensory experiences of a recent warm-weather vacation, my wife and I enjoyed an unexpected gift: The words other people chose to share on their T-shirts. The messages weren’t limited to any one age group, as the young and old took time to find phrases they shared with strangers who were enjoying time in warmer weather. D. None A boy, aged of the above about 12, stood BY DANIEL DUNAIEF in a line with a white T-shirt with a message in allcapital letters: “Help I’m on a family vacay.” To

round out the picture, he had a dour and distracted look as he was clearly waiting for other members of his family to catch up to him in line. Another boy about the same age strutted around with a colorful shirt that suggested: “You need me on your team.” In a culture where sports plays such a prominent role in the identity of children and parents who drive children they imagine might one day be making six, seven, eight or nine figure salaries on fields all over the country, that shirt was consistent with the belief in the American Sports Dream. Numerous adults and young adults offered a connection to their favorite sports teams. For one football fan, though, merely sharing the Philadelphia Eagles emblem was insufficient. Near his beloved Eagles logo, he urged his team to “Beat Dallas.” This year, that was especially fitting as the Eagles overtook the Cowboys in the last few weeks of the year to win the NFC East title. I’m not sure if this coupling was deliberate,

but a woman’s T-shirt suggested that readers “Follow your soul,” while her companion wore a Nashville Predators shirt, indicating, at least in the moment, that her friend’s soul may track the hockey team from Tennessee. A young girl, walking next to her father, wore a shirt that suggested that she’d “Rather Be a Mermaid.” Given how desperately Ariel, the Little Mermaid of Disney fame, sang about wanting to escape the ocean, I couldn’t help thinking about the line from the song “Under the Sea,” where the crab Sebastian admonishes her — King Triton’s youngest daughter — that “the seaweed is always greener in somebody else’s lake.” An older African-American couple borrowed from the movies as the man wore a shirt that suggested he was “Straight Outta Money.” The message probably resonated for others who may have blown through some of their travel and entertainment budget for time in a warm climate. Advertising a New England town coupled with a local accent, a woman sported a message

that read, “Baa Ha Ba, Maine,” offering a connection to the Bar Harbor tourist destination along the coast of Maine that is a short drive to Acadia National Park. A young boy urged people on his T- shirt to “Be the Change,” an expression that an actor or actress might borrow to spread a specific message after winning a coveted award for performing their craft. Offering a take on the fine art of putting off responsibilities and chores, a young man wore a shirt that said, “I don’t procrastinate. I delegate to my future self.” After reading so many variations of the theme that the procrastinators club would be meeting some time next week, I enjoyed a refreshing take on the process of setting something aside for a later time. An older man with white hair and a thick white mustache and beard brought along two noteworthy T-shirts: The first celebrated his 80 years, as part of a beach tour, and the second promised that “Beneath this beard is a handsome man.”

Philadelphia: City of Brotherly Love, Culture and History

D

uring the recent holiday break, we took advantage of the free time to visit two delightful museums in Philadelphia: The Barnes Foundation and the Museum of the American Revolution. The Barnes is home of a huge collection of Impressionist paintings, among many other treasures, and the Museum of the American Revolution, not quite 2 years old, is dedicated to telling the story of our evolution from the historic center of America’s founding. The Barnes started as the remarkable personal collection of Dr. Albert C. Between Barnes. Born in you and me Philadelphia in BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF 1872 into a working class family, he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania medical school and went off to Germany to study chemistry. From his

work there, he made his fortune by co-inventing a silver nitrate antiseptic, called Argyrol, with a German colleague Hermann Hille. Buying out Hille, he ran the A.C. Barnes Company from 1908-29 and in the process started to collect art. Ironically he didn’t much care for the Impressionists until his high school friend and artist, William Glackens, persuaded him otherwise. He sent Glackens off to Paris to buy some paintings, and when the artist returned with 33, Barnes became serious about collecting art and took over the purchasing himself, housing the works at his estate. Barnes started the Barnes Foundation in 1922, a nonprofit cultural and educational institution to “promote the advancement of education and appreciation of fine arts and horticulture.” The foundation oversees the art, and since 2012 the collection has been located on Benjamin Franklin Parkway in a splendid compound that honors both the founder and the masters whose works lie within its walls and in its gardens. There is even a parking lot on the premises that makes a visit so much easier. The Barnes boasts the world’s single largest collection of paintings by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, with 181, and ditto for those by Paul Cézanne

with 69. There are also 59 by Matisse, 46 by Pablo Picasso, as well as art by Modigliani, van Gogh, Seurat and Barnes’ friend, Glackens. Also in the dazzling museum are paintings by Old Masters El Greco, Peter Paul Rubens, Titian and Veronese. There are sculptures, masks, tools, jewelry, textiles, ceramics, manuscripts and one of the most outstanding collections of wrought iron, some 887 pieces, among so many other multicultural offerings. A major exhibition, which sadly will end there this Sunday, Jan. 12, is 30 Americans. Featuring works of many of the most important African American artists of the past four decades, according to the museum’s curator, Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw — herself a famous African American professor at the University of Pennsylvania and a top administrator at the Smithsonian — this collection “explores issues of personal and cultural identity against a backdrop of pervasive stereotyping — of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and class.” The artists include Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mark Bradford, Nick Cave, Mickalene Thomas, Kehinde Wiley and Barkley Hendricks along with 24 others, and some of the paintings are riveting. This is the 10th anniversary of 30 Americans and the first in the Northeast since

2011 when it was in Washington, D.C. Chatting with other visitors, we learned that many came from some distance to catch up with this exhibit of modern artists and their distinct perspectives. Did I mention that there is also a wonderful restaurant inside the Barnes? This doesn’t leave me much space to tell you about the Museum of the American Revolution, more the pity, which is also handsomely housed in central Philadelphia. Of particular interest is their first international loan exhibition, Cost of Revolution: The Life and Death of an Irish Soldier, which will remain in place until March 17. By focusing on Richard St. George, born in County Galway to Protestant landed gentry and who became a soldier, artist, writer and extensive landowner, the exhibit tells us much about the American Revolution of 1776, the Irish Rebellion of 1798 — and life in the British army, which St. George joined. There are paintings, many sketches that St. George made himself, artifacts and weaponry in a comprehensive display of history from that era. By the way, it is really easy to get to Philadelphia from here on Long Island with only a stopover in Penn Station if one takes the trains. If only for these two gracious institutions, it is well worth the trip.
