Centereach Boy Scout does his part to take care of wildlife BY KARINA GERRY DESK@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM A Centereach High School senior and Eagle Scout has dedicated much of his time to protecting Long Island beaches and wildlife. Aidan Donnelly, 17, joined his local Boy Scout troop when he was in fifth grade after he was inspired by his older cousin’s Court of Honor ceremony, the highest rank a Scout can earn. Donnelly saw all the volunteer projects his cousin was involved in and wanted to make a difference as well. Now an Eagle Scout himself, Donnelly has planned and been the leader of four different wildlife projects since 2014. “I really can’t describe it,” Donnelly said. “I just love seeing my projects make a positive difference. I love seeing the difference I was able to make through my projects and knowing I’ve helped the beach and so many people.” Donnelly has been volunteering since he was nine years old, when he joined an educational program at West Meadow Beach called Beach Rangers, a program that teaches young kids about West Meadow Beach and the ecosystem there. He credits Beach

Rangers and the cleanups he participated in as inspiration for the many wildlife projects he has started. “I was pretty sad the first time to see how much garbage was left at the beach,”

Donnelly said. “Which sort of sparked my interest in wanting to help out. So, I did beach cleanups every year from then on, and once I got into Boys Scouts, I got my troop involved in the cleanup.”

Through his Eagle Scout project, which he completed in 2015, Donnelly led, designed and planned the building and installation of an osprey nest platform at West Meadow Beach, when he was just 13 years old. In order to complete the project, Donnelly had to work with local politicians, such as Town of Brookhaven Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station), who recognizes him as a true asset to the community. “Aidan has an obvious sense of loyalty and duty to his community,” Cartright said. “He goes above and beyond in all that he does, and his dedication is reflected in academic honors, high achievements in scouting, and his organization of community activities. In my role as a town council member I have met hundreds of outstanding young people in our community, but Aidan is exceptional even among that elite group.” Out of the many projects he has been involved in, Donnelly said he felt particularly proud of his most recent one — a fishing line resource recovery/ recycling project that he just completed this past December. The project is a countywide sustainable BOY SCOUT Continued on A5

Suffolk displays designs for rapid transit bus lanes on Nicolls BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM County Road 97, commonly known as Nicolls Road, is one of Long Island’s main thoroughfares, connecting Stony Brook on the North Shore to Patchogue on the South with nearly 16 miles of highway. For years the county has examined ideas to relieve rush hour traffic; now it is proposing a rapid-transit bus system, high-occupancy vehicle lanes and 16 roadside bus stops.

“It’s going to be dual function, and also reduce congestion on Nicolls Road, so its two birds, one stone effect,” said William Hillman, a chief engineer at Suffolk County’s Department of Public Works. In a 2015 county report prepared by multinational engineering firm Parsons Brickerhoff, the project cost was originally estimated at upward of $200 million, though plans have been scaled down slightly since then. Babylon-based engineering firm Greenman-Pedersen, which

was the latest company tapped to research the Nicolls Road project, presented April 2 summaries of its initial plans at Suffolk County Community College. The plans, as they currently exist, call for 16 new stations positioned along Nicolls as bus terminals connecting to existing Suffolk County Transit routes. The plans would also include 16.5 new miles of dedicated lanes to bypass traffic congestion. Service of these bus lines include a frequency much higher than any current county bus, from a weekday peak of every 10 minutes to a weekend peak of 20 minutes. Presenters did not offer details on the buses’ fuel source nor did they describe where new stoplights or other traffic slowing devices may be implemented. Larry Penner, who worked for more than three decades in the Federal Transit Administration regional office and now comments on ongoing projects as a selfdescribed transit historian, said that buses typically get right of way in among normal traffic. Mike Colletta, a project engineer at engineering firm Greenman-Pedersen, which created the most recent presentation on the road, said the firm was recently put onto the project by Suffolk County, and is still in the very early stages of design. County Legislator Kara Hahn (D-Setauket) said the Legislature has been approving the project, applying for grants and getting funding toward the corridor studies for years. The project still has a while to go before the county can estimate the true impact on traffic. County officials worry that people will not use buses. “By making the buses faster, more reliable, more frequent, we may have a chance to get people to sit in it and get out of their cars,” Hahn said. While representatives from the county and engineering firm could not give an estimate into the amount of vehicles, Penner said the county still has many things to consider, including costs of roughly 10 new buses, 16 stations and proposed amenities, such as real-time bus locators, similar to the units found at the train stations. Seating and overhangs for the stations themselves must also be factored in. “Here’s the challenge they face: The density in Suffolk County is far less than Nassau, and far less than New York City,” Penner said. “How many people would drive to one of these 16 Bus Rapid Transit stations and how many people will take a commuter bus and switch to the rapid transit when you can get in your car and get there much more quickly, that will be the challenge they face, because time is money for people.” These proposed stations would link up to existing Suffolk County Transit bus routes. Multiple existing bus routes already travel along or intersect with Nicolls, including the 3D, the S62, S69, 6B, S58 and 7A, though only two routes use the county road for a significant distance. Service on Suffolk County Transit has also been spotty for a long time, with users often left waiting for buses for over an hour. Bruce Morrison, the president of the Selden Civic Association, said he is skeptical of the project, questioning how many people would use it, especially with existing issues on the regular county buses. “Will they get the ridership?” Morrison said. “If it’s not attractive to the public, you’re going to have empty buses.” Buses would operate in the HOV lanes on the inside of the road and along the specialized bus lanes along the outside portions of the road. One proposed route would take these buses down the Long Island Expressway, through the Ronkonkoma Train Station and the expected Ronkonkoma Hub project as well before linking back up to Nicolls.

Continued from A3 fishing line recovery and recycling project that is installed at West Meadow Beach, Stony Brook Harbor, Port Jefferson, Caleb Smith State Park Preserve, Deep Pond Conservation Area, Lake Ronkonkoma, South Haven County Park, Bubbles Falls, Rattlesnake Brook near Oakdale and West Brook Pond. The project required Donnelly to work with many outside sources, such as community members and an out-of-state recycling facility. “I needed to find somewhere that would take the line and recycle it,” Donnelly said, “rather than it ending up in the trash or in landfills. I did find a Midwest company, and

they sent me postage-paid shipping boxes to give to the organizations.” Bill Schwalback, scoutmaster of Donnelly’s BSA Troop 362, has known him since 2016 when his son joined the troop where Donnelly was serving as troop guide. He has seen the growth and drive of the 17-year-old since then and notes that Donnelly has always jumped on the opportunity to take on a leadership role and enjoys passing on his knowledge to others. “Aidan does not deflect an opportunity to teach others,” Schwalback said. “He thrives on the ability to share his knowledge and his passion with others, and it is great to see a young adult fill with pride when he sees something to completion and knows that it will make a difference to the targeted population or species.”

Selden Fire Department honors a hero, 50 years later BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM The Selden Fire Department remembered the life of a fallen hero by dedicating a new memorial park April 6. Fifty years ago, Chief Arnold Seaman was killed in the line of duty while responding to a fire at Newfield High School. On the way to the high school April 10, 1969, Seaman was involved in a car crash. He was taken to the hospital but did not survive his injuries. The park named in his honor was built on the corner of Hawkins Avenue and North Bicycle Path near the site of the fatal crash. Friends and family paid tribute to the late Seaman, hailed as a true American hero. Jack Emr was the assistant fire chief of the department at the time of the crash and took over as chief after Seaman’s death. He said burying his close friend took a big chunk of his heart. “Every April 10, I have a beer and I say, ‘Chief, save me a seat for me on the fire truck, I’ll be there soon,’” he said.

In the center of the park is a memorial honoring the late chief with a bronze helmet, an exact replica of the one he wore 50 years ago. The area around the park was designated as Chief Arnold Seaman Way. Jim Seaman, Arnold’s son, thanked the crowd for coming to the dedication and said since the day of the crash 50 years ago, the Selden Fire Department has had the family’s back. “It is a debt we can never repay, and I thank them,” he said. Jim Seaman reminisced about being named an honorary fireman back in 1969, displaying to the crowd the badge he was given all those years ago. He also mentioned an experience about ten years ago, when at an installation dinner he was called up and handed a fire chief’s jacket, calling it the greatest honor of his life. “I know my father is looking down and is beaming ear to ear right now,” he said. Later in his speech he added, “This [park] is something as a family we can be proud of. It’s something 10 years from now my father’s great-grandchildren can come and visit.” Photos by David Luces

Middle Country 17 Commack 12

Mad Dogs take down Cougars, 17-12 BY BILL LANDON DESK@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

The Commack Cougars girls lacrosse team stayed with Middle Country trading goals for an 8-8 tie at the half, but the Mad Dogs stretched their legs in the final period to surge ahead for a 1712 road win April 4. After the game, the Mad Dogs remained unbeaten at 4-0 in Division I trailing Northport and Riverhead, but then beat Riverhead, 11-10, April 6 to head the table. Middle Country senior midfielder Sophie Alois, above right, led the way for the Mad Dogs notching five goals and four assists.

Eighth-grader Kate Timarky, bottom left, split the pipes three times with a pair of assists, while senior goalie Elizabeth Pomaro had five saves on the day. Also pictured, Middle Country senior midfielder Jennifer Barry, upper left, drives toward the crease; Mad Dog players, upper center, surround Commack junior midfielder Emma Downey; Commack junior attack Shannon Smith, bottom right, with a shovel shot on goal against Middle Country; and, bottom center, a Middle Country player tries to stop Commack senior midfielder Katie Kelly from grabbing a loose ball.

Editorial Value newspapers There’s something real about a newspaper, and it goes beyond the ink and page, beyond the action of picking one up at the drugstore or plucking it from the mailbox. We who work at TBR News Media imbue the paper, the one you hold in your hands right now, with our labor. If you could see us at our work, you would know just how hard and long we work to provide the community with as much local content as we can. Truly, the paper is alive. While we editors and reporters are active in the community every day, we know the lives of the people behind the paper are not front and center. Behind each of those bylines you might read in the paper today is a person researching, interviewing and eventually rapidly typing each deliberated word hunched over a desk. Each picture is edited and placed within the blocks of text. The ads are crafted by graphic designers spending hours arranging each one. We’re hardly some sort of news assembly line, working out of some monolithic New York City skyscraper. Our tiny, two-story office is located right here on the North Shore, blending into the surrounding rustic buildings of Setauket. This past weekend, a team from TBR News Media traveled up to Albany for the annual New York Press Association convention. Hundreds of reporters, editors and publishers from papers from across the state gather for this annual event in a single location. Listening to the voices of the people at other papers during this event can be both disheartening and encouraging. Advertising dollars are down; and, while research from the University of Texas at Austin’s Center for Media Engagement shows journalists rate themselves high in credibility, accuracy and trustworthiness, the public has a much lower opinion. “Fake news” has become a common phrase, one that was initially used for the express purpose of distorting facts during the 2016 presidential campaign. It’s now regularly used to denigrate a pillar of our democracy, which concerns us. It’s important for people to understand the importance of our profession to a healthy democracy. Comfort the afflicted, afflict the comfortable is an expression often used to describe the role of the newspaper. We aim to hold people in power accountable and report on government operations, so citizens become better informed voters. We take this role very seriously. A good chunk of our staff lives within our coverage areas along Long Island’s North Shore. We carefully report on the community because we are a part of that community. We wish to see it thrive because we ourselves care about what should happen to our neighbors and the place in which we all live. What does that mean for you, the person holding the paper? Know that we appreciate you. You’re keeping the paper alive.

Letters … We welcome your letters. They should be no longer than 400 words and may be edited for length, libel, style and good taste. We do not publish anonymous letters.

Letters to the editor

NY needs to reinstate SALT deductions Long Island faces many unique challenges not experienced in most other parts of the country, such as high local property taxes, unaffordable energy costs and a skyrocketing cost of living. These challenges have chased Long Islanders and opportunities away from our home here on the Island. In 2018, the average household income in Suffolk County was roughly $92,000, and while that may seem like a lot of money compared to what people make in other parts of the country, it certainly does not go anywhere near as far locally. For hardworking Long Islanders, the high cost of living is affecting so many young people’s ability to raise their families here and seniors’ ability to stay in the communities they love. While some Long Islanders have seen more money in their paychecks under tax reform, there are too many middle-income families paying more. Much of this discrepancy can be credited to the placement of a $10,000 cap

on the state and local tax deduction. This cap translates to Long Islanders being able to deduct only $10,000 of state and local income, sales and property taxes from their federal taxes. In a place like New York, where state and local taxes are skyrocketing, this cap takes its toll on the pockets of everyday hardworking men and women. Of course, it’s important to remember that the reason our state and local tax deduction was so high was because our state and local taxes were so high. Every level of government has a role to play in reducing our tax burden. The SALT deduction change was a geographic redistribution of wealth, taking extra money from places like New York to pay for deeper tax cuts elsewhere. New York is a net contributor that now will be contributing even more. The 2017 tax law chose winners and losers in a way that could have and should have been avoided. My goal in this tax reform mission has always been to ensure the hardworking

men and women of Long Island keep more of their paycheck, reduce their cost of living and are able to save more for retirement. The fight to improve our tax code so that it is fair for Long Islanders is not over. I support fully restoring the SALT deduction as part of any additional tax legislation. This Congress, I am continuing the fight by co-sponsoring the SALT Fairness Act of 2019 (H.R.257), introduced by Reps. Peter King (R-Seaford) and Tom Suozzi (D-Glen Cove), and the SALT Deductibility Act (H.R.188), introduced by Rep. Nita Lowey (D-Rockland-Westchester), which would repeal the limitation on SALT deductions. I’m willing to work with anyone on either side of the aisle to secure tax relief for my constituents, and I won’t stop fighting to ensure middle-income Long Islanders are able to keep more of their hard-earned money. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) U.S. Representative, District 1

Agenda to overthrow Trump is backfiring Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Loretta Lynch and Christopher Steele should all be arrested and charged with conspiracy and collusion to overthrow the presidency of Donald J. Trump (R). Trump has been under fire since election night for having the unmitigated gall to overturn the Bush-Clinton-Obama dynasty, as there was no contingency plan in place for such a scenario. While the godless/progressive/Stalinist gang has seemingly had their way for the past 10 years, aided by the Democratic National Committee-controlled media, their time is about to end. The nightly Stephen Colbert/

Seth Myers/Jimmy Kimmel hatefest will no longer seem so relevant. If Presidents Ronald Reagan (R) or even John F. Kennedy (D) could see today’s political state of affairs, they would be stupefied. Journalism is a profession on the ropes: with Don Lemon, Anderson Cooper, Chuck Todd, Wolf Blitzer and Rachel Maddow on a 24/7 mission to destroy my president, I see only now how Sen. Joe McCarthy (R) was, if nothing else, a sage and soothsayer 60 years too early. The United States is nearly 250 years old. At every turn, every crisis, God has been there to validate our righteous

might and inherent goodness, a beautiful experiment closer to perfection than any in human history, which is why people from five continents have been beating down the door to come here for more than a century. The good news: The so-called “Democrats,” also known as progressives/ Jew-haters/racists/Stalinists/Maoists, have finally committed political hari-kari. Trump 2020 is a done deal. The Democrat “clown car”on the way will make the last GOP “clown car” look like a VW Beetle. Michael Meltzer Stony Brook

Accidents bring out the best and worst in us Our community is very fortunate to have good neighbors. Unfortunately, we also have at least one person who has lost his moral compass. Case in point: My wife and I went shopping at the Setauket Stop & Shop. Our auto was neatly parked in one of the

outlined parking spaces. Upon return to our car, significant damage was noted. A very nice lady saw a man driving away in his pickup truck after striking our auto, clearly a hit-and-run event. She was not able to see the license plate number. I called 911, and a patrol car arrived promptly. The officer

was courteous and professional. The lady also photographed the damage to our auto and forwarded the photos to us. Many thanks. This incident has not diminished our faith in humanity. It has enhanced it. Anton and Denise Richter Stony Brook

Competitive people get stuck in an elevator

F

our people get into an elevator together. They kind of recognize each other, but they’re not sure so they smile politely and nod. They’re all going to the 7th floor. On the way up, the elevator gets stuck. Mr. B, the baseball coach, looks at his watch and shakes his head. Ms. S, the soccer coach, paces back and forth, as if she’s blocking a goal. D. None Mrs. V, the violin of the above teacher, closes her eyes, taps her BY DANIEL DUNAIEF feet and imagines the rhythm of a Mozart concerto. Mrs. Jones tries to text her three children, but the elevator

doesn’t get any cell service. “This shouldn’t take too long,” Mr. B offers hopefully. “I’ve been stuck in elevators, had rain delays and all kinds of problems in the past. We’ll be fine.” “Oh, hey Mr. B,” Mrs. Jones says, her voice shaking a bit. “It’s me, Joan Smith. I’m John’s mom.” “Right, right, I knew you looked familiar,” Mr. B says. “Did John have a chance to go hit in the cages like I told him to?” “No, well, he had a violin lesson, so he couldn’t,” Mrs. Jones replies. “But I know he wants to and he’ll get to the cage this weekend.” “This weekend?” Mr. B sighs. “By then the big game will be over.” “So, you’re the reason John couldn’t concentrate during his lesson,” Mrs. V says, as her foot stops and she swivels to face Mr. B. “Excuse me?” Mr. B says, crossing his arms over his chest. “John has been slumping recently and we need him to start hitting

again. He has tremendous potential and we’d like to see how far that will take him.” “Wait, John Jones?” Ms. S asks, turning to the group. “John is a fantastic goalie and we need him for our club game this weekend.” “I thought soccer was a fall sport,” Mr. B sighs. “Right, and baseball is a spring sport and yet during our busiest season, John seems to sneak away for extra hitting and throwing,” Ms. S says. “Well, he needs to practice all year round. What’s he going to do with soccer?” Mr. B adds. “You’re kidding, right? You think he’s going to play baseball in college?” Ms. S asks. “Does anyone have any idea how talented he is on the violin? Have you ever heard him play? He is way ahead of his peers on the violin and could easily play at a much higher level,” Mrs. V says. “He never talks about the violin with me,” Mr. B says, unfolding and refolding his arms. “Would you be interested in hearing about it? Do you think he’s figured out that you might

not be a receptive audience?” Mrs. V adds. “Now, come on, think about this: John gets to play soccer, baseball and the violin,” Mrs. Jones says. “He gets to benefit from all of your expertise and he’s passionate about all these activities. You’re all giving him experiences he’ll never forget and he’s fortunate to have these opportunities. That’s a good thing, right?” “Yes, I suppose,” Ms. S huffs. “But if he really wants to be great at anything, he needs to commit to it year round.” “I could say the same thing about baseball,” Mr. B says. The elevator suddenly starts to move again. “Yes, but he has committed to all of your activities throughout the year,” Mrs. Jones sighs. “I know, because I’m driving him and his sisters everywhere. Please understand that he does the best he can to pick and choose during overlapping events. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to shop for a present to celebrate his 10th birthday.”

Three cheers for three celebrations

T

his is a week of celebrations, and it gives me great pleasure to share them with you, our readers. First is the delightful news that Times Beacon Record newspapers won 12 awards for outstanding work over the past year from the New York Press Association this past weekend. The convention was in Albany, and we loved hearing our names called out before a group of more than 300 attendees from weeklies and dailies, paid papers and free, representing communities Between throughout New you and me York state. The BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF prizes are listed elsewhere in the paper, and I am particularly pleased that they span the two primary responsibilities we carry: good

editorial coverage and attractive advertising. Those are our two masters, and we need to serve both well in order to survive. Speaking of surviving, a major part of the convention and its workshops was concerned with just that. As most of you know, newspapers — and the media across the board — are engaged in a gigantic struggle. Small businesses, long the backbone of community newspapers like ours, are falling by the wayside. Consumers are buying from Amazon and Google. It’s so easy to toddle over to a computer in one’s pajamas and order up Aunt Tillie’s birthday present, have it wrapped and delivered in no time at all, and perhaps even save some money in the transaction. Only small stores with highly specialized product for sale can compete. Or else they offer some sort of fun experience in their shops, making a personal visit necessary. And it’s not only small stores that are disappearing. Stores like Lord & Taylor — “a fortress on Fifth Avenue,” according to The New York Times — are also gone, directly impacting publications like that esteemed paper. But that is only one existential threat to media.

The other is the drumbeat of fake news. The internet and social media have been significantly discredited as news sources. Cable television hasn’t done much better in the public’s regard. Print, which has always been considered the most reliable source of fact-based news, mainly because it takes longer to reach the readers and is vetted by editors and proofers, can be dismissed with a wave of the hand and the accusation, “Fake news!” On the other hand, polls show that print is still the most trusted source. And that is particularly true for hometown newspapers, where reporters and editors live among those they write about and have to answer to them in the supermarket and at school concerts. Which brings me to my next cause for celebration. Monday, April 8, marked the 43rd anniversary of the founding of The Village Times, which began the Times Beacon Record expansion. We were there in 1976, we are here in 2019, and I believe a good measure of success is simply survival. We are still just as committed to the high ideals of a free press — carrying those ideals and passion to our website and any

other of our other platforms and products — as we were that day of wild exhilaration when our first issue was mailed to our residents. We will remain so in the future with the support of the communities we serve. There is one other happy occasion this week. My oldest grandchild, Benji, is celebrating his birthday. When Benji was born, 24 years ago, I became a grandmother. This is, as we know, a club one cannot join on one’s own. One needs a grandchild to be admitted to this lovely existence. And in addition to the joy of watching him grow up into an honorable and talented young man, I have the exceptional pleasure of working with him as he goes about his chosen career of making quality films. It was he who directed and helped write our historical movie, “One Life to Give,” and now its sequel, “Traitor.” It is he who will be the first of our family’s next generation to graduate from college next month. I am writing this column on the eve of your birthday, Benji. Happy Birthday, Dear Grandson! And I salute your parents for letting you follow your heart.
