Good Shepherd Hospice, a part of Catholic Health Services, presented its Living the Mission Award to home health aide Mary Lombardi for exemplifying the mission and values of CHS — I-Care (integrity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence). Nominated for her outstanding qualities, Lombardi was recently honored at GSH’s Farmingdale office. “Mary is very comfortable with end-oflife care, and this comfort level translates into the compassionate care she provides,” a colleague said. “She makes the patient and the family more comfortable with the process they are going through by connecting in a very personal way.” The Centereach resident has been part of Catholic Health Services since 2010. Before joining GSH, Lombardi worked at Family Home Health Care. She started this career path as an active mother of four, providing care for her mother-in-law, who lived with the family. Looking to volunteer, she responded to a request in her church bulletin to help a female quadriplegic who needed help on weekends. In 1992, Lombardi became a certified Home Health Aide through Selfhelp Community Services in Hempstead. She worked at CHS as a contract aide before joining GSH to fulfill her calling for hospice work. “My career at GSH has been a journey to

Brookhaven limits gas-powered Police equipment at small parks

BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM The Town of Brookhaven is looking to make cleaning up its parks a little quieter and a little more environmentally friendly. At its May 2 meeting, the town board voted unanimously to establish “green parks” at various locations within the Town of Brookhaven. This mandates the town to only use electric-powered, handheld landscaping equipment when cleaning up the parks. Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station) was one of the main drivers for the bill, which would establish the ordinance in only small parks, including the Steven J. Crowley Memorial Park and Block Boulevard Park in Port Jefferson Station, and Sycamore Circle Park and Parson Drive Park in Stony Brook. The Democratic councilwoman said it is a case of both noise and pollution. “Thirty minutes running a gas-powered leaf blower pollutes the same as a Ford Raptor truck running 3,900 miles. One leaf blower creates two to four pounds of particulate matter per hour,” Cartright said. The changes have been limited to small-sized parks in the town, according to Town Supervisor

Ed Romaine (R), because the batteries wear out if used constantly for the larger town-owned parks, though he said the town was looking to go beyond this pilot program in the direction of all electric handheld landscape equipment for more than town employees. Cartright said she has been looking into more general legislation that would affect gaspowered leaf blowers within the entire town. She pointed to the town of North Hempstead, which passed a law in January this year banning the use of gas-powered leaf blowers from June 15 to Sept. 15. The councilwoman said she wants to bring landscaping associations and other advocacy groups to the table. “I don’t want to do something that impacts the landscapers that’s negative,” Cartright said. “I do want to bring them to the table to talk about how we can be a little more environmentally friendly.” The new ordinance requires a budget transfer of $10,000 for the new equipment, which mostly comes in the form of electric leaf blowers. Other parks included are the Gary Adler Park in Centereach and the Pamela and Iroquois parks in Selden. All councilors on the board cosponsored the bill with parks from their individual areas.

Centereach gang member among three indicted in murder plot

Suffolk County District Attorney Tim Sini (D) and Homeland Security Investigations of New York announced May 14 the indictment of three 18th Street gang members for allegedly conspiring to murder two individuals they believed were MS-13 gang members. “This is one of many cases where my office and Homeland Security worked together to not only bring bad actors to justice, but to actually prevent violence,” Sini said. “We are no longer responding or waiting for tragedy to strike; we are taking a proactive approach, and due to excellent law enforcement work, we are preventing murders.” Wilber Campos Chicas, know as “Troya,” 25, of Port Jefferson Station; Guillermo Linares Alvarez, known as “Extrano,” 19, of Huntington Station; and Isidro Aguirre Canelas, known as “Chino,” 26, of Centereach, are each charged with one count of conspiracy in the second degree, a felony. Chicas and Canelas have been identified by law enforcement as members of the Tiny Locos clique of the 18th Street gang, which is based in Port Jefferson Station; and Linares Alvarez has been identified as a member of the Shatto Park Locos clique, located in Huntington Station. An investigation by the district attorney’s office and Homeland Security that began in March revealed intelligence that Chicas, Alvarez and Canelas allegedly conspired to murder two victims who they believed were members of MS-13, which is 18th Street’s rival gang. Between March 15 and April 24, the defendants allegedly took several steps in furtherance of the murder conspiracy, including sharing photos and descriptions of the two targets and their whereabouts. The defendants were allegedly going to use two machetes, which were owned by Alvarez, to murder the two victims. They

also allegedly discussed obtaining a car to use while carrying out their attacks. The three defendants, all of whom entered the United States illegally, were apprehended by Homeland Security agents in April. “Working quickly, agents were able to take all three defendants into custody before they were able to execute their plan,” Sini said. “But for the dedication and professionalism of Homeland Security, these murders likely would have occurred.” “Homeland Security and Suffolk County will not stand for violence at the hand of any gang member,” said Gerald Handley, assistant special agent in charge of Homeland Security New York. “Whether the intended victim is innocent or a known member of a gang, we pay the same attention to the details and remain as proactive as possible to stay in front of the violence. We will stand united with our law enforcement partners and continue to arrest and seek prosecution of gang members.” The three defendants were arraigned on the indictment on March 13 by Suffolk County Acting County Court Judge Karen M. Wilutis and were remanded without bail. If convicted of the top count, the defendants each face a maximum sentence of eight to 25 years in prison. Chicas, Alvarez and Canelas are due back in court respectively on May 29, 30 and 31. “Today is the latest example of Suffolk County law enforcement using the conspiracy statutes under New York State law to prevent violence,” Sini said. “We are collecting intelligence, analyzing that intelligence and disseminating it in a way that is allowing us to prevent violence and hold dangerous gang members accountable. None of this would be possible without the partnership between my office and Homeland Security as well as other law enforcement agencies.”

He said he was told the policy on headgear was a new policy. Several other students and graduates of SBU, who did not wish to be named in this article, all confirmed watching Grewal be denied entry. Bansri Shah, a digital media/pre-law student at SBU, posted a message to Facebook about the situation, saying she felt it was especially concerning considering the diversity of students from the nearby university. “Honestly, I never expected this type of action taken from an establishment in Port Jeff considering the racial diversity in a college town right next door, Stony Brook, but I think it’s really messed up,” Shah said in her original Facebook post.

They finished third with a 12-2 record one game behind Northport.

Pictured clockwise from above, Middle Country’s Barry and Ward Melville junior Sydney Golini battle for possession; Ward Melville junior attack Kristin Quinn gets a shot off down low among four MC defenders; Middle Country eighth-grader Kate Timarky looks for a cutter; senior midfielder Alois pushes upfield; and Middle Country keeper Liz Pomaro makes one of her nine saves. Both teams earned a bye in the opening round of the playoffs and are back in action May 20 where Middle Country will host the winner of the May 17 Sachem East vs. Bay Shore game, and the Patriots will be at home to take on either Sachem North or Smithtown West. Game times have yet to be determined. Photos by Bill Landon

Opinion

Editorial Election day debate

Mark your calendar: May 21 is election day! And according to New York State law, so is the second Tuesday in July for most Suffolk County fire departments. The third Tuesday in March is also election day for many village trustees and propositions. Election day for state and local primaries, well that’s June 25 this year. When do you vote on library budget? Each local library has a different day for its election. So, why then do we call the first Tuesday in November election day as if there’s only one day when citizens vote? Election days can be tough to track. It’s like the nutty old Abbott and Costello skit “Who’s on first, what’s on second, and I don’t know is on third.” Yet elections are no laughing matter. Collectively, all of these elections amount to increased spending, which overtime adds up. It’s not easy getting it straight — not only these dates, but also all the spending. In recent years, large and seemingly extravagant multimillion-dollar public projects have been both approved and declined by popular vote with lower voter turnout throughout our circulation area. The $14.9 million bond for the new Setauket Firehouse was approved on its third try with just 580 people voting out of a population of several thousand in the fire district. Last year, a bond presented by the Mount Sinai School District was voted down with a 664428 tally against the project. Mount Sinai has a population of over 12,000. If one or two days each year were designated election day, it would be easier to hold elected officials accountable by enabling taxpayers to see a broad overview of taxation on one ballot. At TBR News Media, we would support consolidating elections into one or two universal election days each year. Make it a national holiday, so people are more keenly aware of their obligation. Maybe turn Columbus Day, a federal holiday, into election day? With one or two annual election days, citizens could more easily track spending and stay abreast of community affairs. But until this happens, as we said, mark your calendars. All elections are important: They determine where our money will go and how much of it. On May 21, Long Islanders will vote on board of education members and school district budgets, which account for a significant majority of our local tax bills. It’s a crucial vote that typically gains support from parents with children in school, while retirees or people with more limited income, who may have different priorities, make a point to show up at the polls to say no. That’s the system we have now, so be sure to exercise your right to vote May 21.

Perspectives

Creating connections to combat anger, fear

Over the past six months, again and again, we’ve consoled and supported one another and our respective faith communities after incidents of hate and violence against people at prayer, whether Muslim, Sikh, Christian or Jewish. Also, recent arson attacks against several historically black churches and a mosque in California. The list could go on. We feel tremendous sadness for each one lost and for their families and loved ones. We feel tremendous sadness for those who are living with injury, whether physical, mental, or emotional. We feel tremendous sadness for the faith communities forever scarred by that loss and by the trauma of violence. We stand with and for each other. We do not agree with each other about everything theological, but we vigorously defend and celebrate one another’s right to pray, worship and live vibrantly as people of faith. In our Three Village Interfaith Clergy Association, we are constantly learning from one another. We host interfaith services, programs and a blog for faith leaders and people of different faith traditions to be in conversation. We encourage everyone in our communities to seek out opportunities to learn about and form relationships with those from a variety of faith and cultural traditions. We are united in this community and love one another as friends and as siblings. We invite you to build those bridges with us. But we also are angry. We’re angry about the persistence of hate. We’re angry that anti-Semitism and Islamophobia and racism are on the rise. We’re angry that organized hate groups are on the rise. We’re angry that people

have such easy access to guns and other weapons that destroy human life. We’re angry that some of this violence is done in the name of religion, and we confess and lament our own failures to wrestle critically with our own scriptures and theologies, and to oppose false versions of those theologies. We’re angry that we now have to spend time talking about how to secure our worship buildings and create safety and active shooter protocols — time that takes away from working for peace and justice in our communities and in our world. We’re angry that our children are learning that the two places they should feel most safe in their communities — their schools and places of worship — are now too often targets. We must do something together about violence. As faith leaders, we don’t have all the answers, but it’s important for people of faith to be part of the conversation about guns, and conflict, and war, and our culture’s increasing acquiescence and resignation to violence, whether it is violent acts or words. Faith leaders, faith communities and people of faith should be the front lines of these conversations, of the commitment to nonviolence, and of active opposition to the glorification of weapons and violence in all its forms. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. often talked about the Beloved Community. On one occasion, he said, “The end is the creation of the Beloved Community. It is this type of spirit and this type of love that can transform opponents into friends. It is this type of understanding goodwill that will transform the deep gloom of the old age into the exuberant gladness of the new age. It is this love which will bring

about miracles in the hearts of [people].” Let us be, together in this Three Village community, the model of exuberant gladness, celebrating and loving one another, and actively working together against the deep gloom of hate and violence.

Letter to the editor

Single most attraction of Island is its people I always enjoy reading Daniel Dunaief’s opinion piece, and last week’s column, “The agony and ecstasy of Long Island life” was no exception. I wish to take the liberty of adding one element of “ecstasy” to his piece, if I may be so presumptuous. As an unapologetic and extremely fortunate native Islander, in my opinion, the single most positive

attraction of our Island is its people. The diversity, empathy and resourcefulness of our neighbors is something of which we can all be proud. Just look at the volunteerism reflected by our fire departments, EMS personnel, school board trustees, library board trustees and countless other organizations that significantly add to the quality of our

lives where their lifeblood is the dedication of the women and men we call neighbors. Admittedly we may be loud at times and in a hurry most of the time, but I wouldn’t trade the friends and neighbors with whom we share our Island with anyone anywhere. Tony Parlatore Stony Brook

Divergent expectations, realities and memories of parenting

A

s I ponder the next step before my pint-sized daughter leaves the proverbial nest, I recall the incongruities between what we expected, what happened and what we remember. Please find below a list of some magical and not-so-magical moments. The birth of our daughter What we thought would happen: We had 40, no, make it D. None 42, weeks to get of the above ready for the birth of our daughter BY DANIEL DUNAIEF who waited well past her due date to appear. We took Lamaze classes — “breathe honey, breathe, there you go” — we read baby books and we had a birth plan. I figured my wife

would let me know “it’s time” when her water broke or when the squint-through-them-andthen-smile-radiantly contractions arrived. We’d jump in a taxi and a wonderfully cheerful nurse would welcome us to the hospital. What actually happened: Our daughter really didn’t want to come out, so the doctor scheduled an induced delivery. We casually packed our small bags, drove slowly to the hospital and walked up to the entrance. Numerous drugs, two days, almost no sleep and considerable anxiety later, our daughter still hadn’t made her appearance. What we remember: This is tough, because we recall some of the hours of confusion and anxiety, but the end result was so life altering that one of our recurring memories was of a nurse coming in, to ask how many times we changed her diaper after she spent hours in the room with us. Wait, were we supposed to change her diaper? Early trips to the doctor What I thought would happen: He’d examine her and tell us what a wonderful job

we were doing, and would offer us timely and helpful advice about surviving without sleep. What actually happened: She weighed less than she did at birth. Is that good? Is that bad? No, it’s normal, he assured us. Why are you giving her shots already? Can’t she get shots later? She looks so peaceful. Why are you making her cry? What I remember: That shot seemed so painful. We don’t remember our first shots, but we both felt as if the doctor were stabbing us with a sword when he gently inserted the needle in her arm. First steps What we thought would happen: She’d take some steps, we’d clap, and she’d be on her way. What actually happened: We didn’t take away her walking toy until someone told us it was keeping her from learning to walk. What we remember: Silly us, we delayed her walking because we let her keep using the toy, but, hey, she did just fine. First athletic event What I thought would happen: She’d try to

throw or catch and ball and I’d be thrilled with her effort. What actually happened: She played with dandelions and chatted with her friends. What I remember: She looked great in that red T-shirt with her mitt turned backward toward her knee. Going to high school What we thought would happen: She’d share her daily experiences with us and we’d laugh and offer sage advice. What actually happened: She grunted, we growled, and now she’s graduating What we remember: She smiled and waved at us from the volleyball court and she laughed with us while we made cookies for her friends. Driving What we thought would happen: She’d drive slowly and carefully and listen to us. What actually happened: She told us all the advice we gave her wasn’t how we drove. What we remember: She passed her driver’s test and can do errands and drive herself around. Thank goodness.

Balancing a career and motherhood

I

t’s still the same old story, only 60 years later. When I was an undergraduate at Barnard, the college president, Millicent McIntosh, who was well ahead of her time, urged the women — actually we still called ourselves “girls” then — to prepare themselves for a career and not just for marriage. “Statistics tell us that you will be alone during some parts of your adult life, whether from widowhood, divorce or not finding a mate. You may have to support yourself and your children, should you have them.” Between We giggled at the message. you and me The question BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF then became: Who will take care of the children while we are working, and what

will be the effect of a working mother on those children? In short, the issue was how to balance a career and motherhood. Although she didn’t say it, the answer for President McIntosh, our role model who had several children, was to have help in the home. That was made possible by the fact that she and her physician husband made a sufficient living to pay for that help. That meant for women to have a career was a luxury, and we resolved the career/motherhood dilemma by assuring ourselves that it was quality time spent with children, not quantity, that would make the difference in their lives. How pat an answer. How innocent. How ridiculous. This was just before the world changed, just before Betty Friedan, Bella Abzug, Gloria Steinem and the invention of birth control pills. Within the following 20 years, certainly by the early 1980s, women poured out of the kitchen into the workplace, and the two-paycheck family became the norm. Values in America had changed, family income had improved, but the conversation was the same: Who will take care

of the children and how will women and men — and the children at home — cope? So how have we coped? For starters, women can pursue success in the workplace much more readily, if not yet with pay equality. Women can also support themselves rather than stay in a marriage they may deem difficult. The other side of the coin is that the frustrations of balancing the workplace and motherhood that we imagined early on have indeed come true. And lots of other changes have taken place in society that weren’t imagined. The relationship between men and women inside marriage has changed. The drive for equal pay in the workplace continues. The rate of divorce has soared in the last half-century. And fewer Americans are even getting married than ever before. In 1960, 82 percent of Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 were married, but in 2010 that rate had dropped to 44 percent. By 2018, the reproductive rate in the United States had fallen to a 32-year low, which will of course have all sorts of implications for the future

workforce and economic consequences on Social Security, among others. Remaining in the middle class now depends, for most people, on two incomes. And the work-life balance question? Well, that problem still hangs in the air. Someone has to take care of the children, but who? I can honestly say that almost every career-successful wife I have ever interviewed and asked how she managed the home-workplace situation has expressed frustration with the outcome even as she loves her work. Couples today work out their own arrangements. Those fortunate enough to have the funds hire help. Roles in marriage have sometimes reversed, with the husband staying at home for the family. Some corporations have realized the benefit of offering paid family leave, so that infants are not left to third-party care. Grandparents have been pressed into service to care for their grandchildren. But the bottom line is that the choice to work has now become the necessity in most cases for both partners to support the family. The choice is still a luxury.
