NYS environmental committee aims to pass sweeping climate change law BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM As the federal government under the current presidential administration has scaled back environmental measures — and at points denied the science behind climate change —members in the New York State Legislature are trying to go about it without the leadership of Uncle Sam. That is, if it can pass before the end of legislative session. “New York has to help lead the way, because we’re not getting any leadership at the federal level,” said Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket). Englebright, the chair of the environmental conservation committee, is sponsoring the Climate and Community Protection Act, which would establish a New York State Climate Action Council. It would contain 25 members made up of state agencies, scientists and those in the environmental justice, labor and other regulated industries. The council would be able to make recommendations to the state Department of Environmental Conservation to limit greenhouse gases. It would also be asked to report on barriers to and opportunities for community ownership of services and commodities in certain communities, particularly for renewable energy.

“An advisory committee that will have meaningful powers to make recommendations as we go forward — the stakes are so high on this issue,” Englebright said. In addition, the bill would require the DEC to establish greenhouse gas reporting requirements and limits on emissions. The bill was passed in the environmental committee and was referred to the ways and means committee in February. The idea of an advisory committee is not new. A similar advisory panel was suggested in the New York State 2019-20 budget, but it was removed in the final version because some legislators disagreed with the number of people

on the board and who would sit on it. “Instead of 25, [Cuomo] had nine appointees; six of them are his cabinet members,” Englebright said. In January during the process for crafting the budget, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) incited a “Green New Deal,” which would have been “comprised of the heads of relevant state agencies and other workforce, environmental justice and clean energy experts,” according to a January press release. The governor has set goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in New York State by 80 percent below the levels emitted in 1990 by the year 2050. A spokesperson from the governor’s office

said the governor is continuing to collaborate with the legislature on climate policy proposals. Cuomo appeared on city radio WNYC’s show hosted by Brian Lehrer June 3. When the new climate change legislation was brought up, he said he was looking to attack the issue while not pretending change will happen all at once. “I believe this is the most pressing issue of our time, but I don’t want to play politics with it and I don’t want to tell people we can move to a carbon free economy in a period of time that I know that we can’t.” The end of this legislative session is June 19, and Englebright said he is crossing his fingers the bill can pass both assembly and senate before time runs out. He said the bill is especially important with the current administration in Washington. The New York Times reported June 3 that 84 environmental rules and regulations are being phased out by Trump and his appointees. “We are seeing the effects of increased carbon dioxide and methane in the atmosphere on a daily basis,” he said. “You can just look at the weather reports for the nation — last year California burned, this year Texas is drowning. The amount of rain we’re getting is a result of an overheated ocean relaying more rain to the atmosphere. And on it goes.”

Brexit: Another British prime minister casualty, stalemate still

A Brit gives further updates on the political woes across the pond

Part two of three I’ve been waiting patiently to write this second part of my personal Brexit overview (see part 1, “Brexit: To leave or not to leave, that is the big question,” TBR News Media’s papers and websites, March 14). There has been an interested response from TBR readers, although as expected not everybody agreed with my Europhile stance or interpretation of events. An apt New York Times description was “fractured Britain.” Even now, there is no resolution to the terms for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to leave the European Union as determined by a national referendum June 23, 2016, almost three years ago — the vote was 51.89 to 48.11 percent. The March 29 deadline went by, so did one on April 12. Now the departure date has been extended begrudgingly by the EU until Oct. 31. That’s Halloween, as many wags have pointed out. Still the drama continues.

Prime Minister Theresa May resigns

On May 24, Prime Minister Theresa May (Conservative, known as Tories) announced her forthcoming departure in tears for failing to deliver Brexit. Never a team player, she was rapidly losing support among her Brexit-leaning party. The withdrawal agreement negotiated with the EU was criticized from all sides even as May tried to soften her parliamentary bill by including environmental measures, workers rights and even the prospect of a second referendum — anathema to Brexiteers in her own party. With no majority in sight for her deal, she will formally resign on June 7, immediately after the state visit by President Donald Trump (R).

Party and his pronouncements are carried out, he could lead the country into the worst of all possibilities on Oct. 31 — a hard no deal. It is chilling to think that such a chaotic scenario could happen to the fifth largest economy in the world, with an impact far beyond the borders of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Tory leadership battle As Will Hutton described Now, the Brexit process it in London’s The Guardian, has been put on hold while the Brexiteers view is the ruling Conservative Party of a blissful but flawed elects a new leader, expected image of “sunlit uplands of by the end of July. That immigrant-free, global free leaves four short months to trade.” Sir Elton John, also finalize leave arrangements. in The Guardian, was more Understandably, the EU is blunt: “I’m ashamed of my YOUR TURN running out of patience and has country for what it has done. indicated it will not renegotiate It’s torn people apart … I am the deal on the table, including sick to death of politicians, especially British the controversial Irish backstop. The number of Tory prime minister politicians. I am sick to death of Brexit. I candidates currently stands at 11, still am a European. I am not a stupid, colonial, well short of the tally of U.S. Democratic imperialist English idiot.” She is now the second prime minister to be felled by Brexit in the footsteps of David Cameron (Conservative), who was responsible for calling the 2016 referendum. Indeed, the Tory Party’s neurosis with Europe had previously ensnared former prime ministers, Margaret Thatcher and John Major.

presidential candidates. At the time of writing the bookies favorite is the selfserving former mayor of London, Boris Johnson, the New York City-born member of parliament of British parents who dealt a fatal blow to Cameron’s 2016 Vote Remain campaign by treacherously joining the Vote Leave team. The covertly ambitious Michael Gove and hardliner Dominic Raab are also in the running. Just as the U.S. Democratic candidates are in a quandary over presidential impeachment proceedings, so the U.K. Tory leadership candidates are scrambling for Brexit answers. Our president has caused local controversy by favoring Johnson. If the former mayor is elected as prime minister by the Conservative

member of the European Parliament since 1999, Nigel Farage, who has been described by his Euro colleagues as a “one-man wrecking ball,” had formed the new Brexit Party only six weeks previously and topped the polls with a 30.8 percent share of the vote. The two leading parties in British politics for almost 100 years, Labour (third place) and Conservatives (fifth), managed a meager 23 percent of the vote between them, beaten by second-place Liberal Democrats with their remain message and fourth-place Green Party with an urgent climate-change agenda. Tellingly, the Tories suffered their worst election result since formation in 1834 and registered only 8.8 percent of the vote, with no seats won in London. May’s party had also taken a shellacking in the earlier county council elections. That’s the current governing party, don’t forget. As The Washington Post noted, coalition governments and a genuine multiparty system may be the future of British politics. In effect, British voters were giving a severe kicking to the government and lead opposition party under arch-socialist Jeremy Corbyn for their inept handling of Brexit. Intriguingly, Scotland and Northern Ireland still balloted majority votes to remain candidates. The MEPs term will end if and when Brexit occurs. Taking all the parties into

Village

Chabad ready to open doors to new center on Nicolls Road BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM With decades of history in the Three Village area, a religious organization is ready to flourish in a new venue. Nestled on Nicolls Road, a new building is near completion for Chabad at Stony Brook which currently works out of Lake Grove. A ribbon cutting will be held June 23 to mark the beginning of a new era for the organization with a larger home for those it serves to gather in, along with a new moniker — Village Chabad. The original name, Chabad at Stony Brook, came about 32 years ago when Rabbi Chaim Grossbaum, director, moved from New Jersey and first worked with Stony Brook University students. Soon, the Chabad services extended beyond the school and into the Three Village community and surrounding areas, with a synagogue, preschool, Hebrew and elementary schools, activities for children and adult education. “Thirty-two years ago, it started with the university, but over the years it developed into a vast array of broad programming,” said Grossbaum’s son Rabbi Motti Grossbaum, program director. During a recent tour of the new building, the Grossbaums, who provide services with Rabbi Shalom Ber Cohen, director of education, said the Chabad outgrew its space in Lake Grove. Many programs had to be held at places such as the Bates House in Setauket, the Holiday Inn Express at Stony Brook and many other rentable spaces in the Three Village area due to lack of space. “We were literally bursting at the seams

there, which is why when we had to rent larger venues for community functions we rented up here in the Three Village area,” Motti Grossbaum said. Chaim Grossbaum likened the new building to a village where everything a Jewish family needs would be under one roof. “It would bring the community together as a village,” he said. “Whether they’re coming for the elementary school or coming for a holiday party, they’re coming home. They’re coming for prayer services or simply to relax with a friend over a cup of coffee. It’s the same home.” The 13,000-square-foot Village Chabad sits on 8.8 acres of property, and 2.8 acres of it has been developed with a wooded buffer. There are classrooms, study rooms, a sanctuary, offices, a conference room, backyard, patio and a room that can hold 200 for events such as bat and bar mitzvahs and holiday dinners. The rabbis said the new location would make it easier to serve the Jewish community who reside close to and on the North Shore. Many who attend services and activities at the Chabad are residents in the Three Village school district as well as Smithtown and Port Jefferson. The Chabad is open to anyone of the Jewish faith of any affiliation or background and membership is not required. “The concept of Village Chabad is the wholesomeness that the Jewish community needs will be here,” Chaim Grossbaum said. While the Chabad still holds a mortgage with Gold Coast Bank for the $5 million project, the rabbis said a number of sponsors, both big and small, stepped up to fund parts of the new building, including

Event set to raise funds for SBU endowment The Brookhaven Chapter of UNICO National, the Italian-American service organization, has established the Roy S. Dragotta Endowment Fund at Stony Brook University in memory of its founder, who also founded the Three Village Chamber of Commerce and the East Setauket Community Association during the early 1970s. Dragotta was an Italian-American restaurant owner, a Three Village attorney and a former deputy Suffolk County attorney. He also served as chapter president and district governor of the New York district of UNICO National for several years. While Dragotta died in December 2014, his legacy will continue through lectures and

events hosted by the Center of Italian Studies at Stony Brook University. The events will be funded in perpetuity by the endowment fund in Roy’s honor. The Brookhaven chapter has donated a total of $13,000 and has pledged to raise an additional $12,000 for a total of $25,000 to SBU in order to establish the UNICO - Roy S. Dragotta Endowment Fund. The university has agreed to match the funds. To help raise funds, the Brookhaven chapter is hosting a cocktail party June 17 at 6 p.m. It will be held at the Holiday Inn Express at Stony Brook, 3131 Nesconset Highway, Centereach. To RSVP, email unico. brk@gmail.com by June 10.

lead donors Edward and Vivian Merrin, owners of The Merrin Gallery in New York City, whose contribution kicked off the donations. Opportunities are still available for sponsorship as the Chabad hopes to finish a kitchen, install a playground for their school and a swimming pool for summer camp. “This has been a community effort of many people who have stepped up and catapulted this whole project to happen,” Chaim Grossbaum said. In addition to the rabbis, those who have attended services and events are looking forward to their new home. Cheryl and Bruce Singer, of Stony Brook, who have been involved with the Chabad for approximately four years, are among them. “We look forward to having a modern building that provides a central hub for the Jewish community to learn, gather, worship, celebrate and participate in social and cultural events for all ages,” Cheryl Singer said. Jennifer O’Brien, an insurance agent in Smithtown who travels to the Chabad from Hauppauge, said it has been nice to see it expand. “Their new location looks like it will be the most upscale synagogue in our area as the floor plans are impressive to say the least,” O’Brien

said. “My children loved attending Hebrew school at their former location in Lake Grove, and we are so excited for all that the grand opening and new accommodating space will offer a synagogue, school and camp.” Andy Polan, president of the Three Village Chamber of Commerce, said the new building “shows that our Jewish community is vibrant and growing.” “It was Chabad’s outreach that inspired me to become more engaged with my Judaism and to take on leadership roles in our Jewish community,” Polan said. “These are experiences that will impact me forever.” Motti Grossbaum said the Chabad currently serves about 500 active families and the move gives the Chabad the opportunity to benefit many more residents. “We’re part of people’s lives, and we’re trying to bring meaning and purpose and to remind people that beyond the chaos of our day-to-day life, we all have a collective mission to make the world a better place every day,” Motti Grossbaum said. The ribbon cutting will be held June 23 at 1 p.m. at the new building located at 360 Nicolls Road, East Setauket. Registration is required by visiting www.myvillagechabad.com.

Perspectives

The tide must turn for NY fishermen BY CONGRESSMAN LEE ZELDIN

In a district nearly completely surrounded by water, our waterways are our way of life, supporting tens of billions of dollars in economic activity per year. For our local recreational and commercial fishermen, it is how they make a living and provide for their families, but year after year the livelihood of our community’s anglers has suffered. New York anglers have been put at a great disadvantage, suffering at the hands of lower quotas and allocations than neighboring states. That means when two boats are fishing next to each other, one may be allowed to catch up to double the amount of the other because it is landing the fish in New Jersey or Connecticut instead of New York. Last year, we witnessed the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Council (ASMFC), the multistate organization that sets fishing quotas, cut off New York fishermen from their fair share of black sea bass while allowing New Jersey’s allocation to grow. This was despite black sea bass being more than 240 percent above the target biomass. This discrepancy is ridiculous and inequitable, and this year the ASMFC is serving up a bad case of deja vu. Due to the failures of New York’s delegates, these inequitable quotas on multiple fisheries will continue through this upcoming season. This is totally unacceptable, and we must secure parity for local fishermen, small business owners and those on theHale, tourism this industry draws Thewho Storyrely of Nathan into our region.Tallmadge It is important to point out though Benjamin NewofYork’s threeSpies seats on the ASMFC, &that the of Origin The Culper Emerson Hasbrouck has consistently demonstrated an unwavering commitment to fighting for New York’s fishermen. Many of my constituents are fishermen and small business owners trying to attract customers, and this decision hurts their ability to make a living and support their families. Customers who are equidistant from Long Island and New Jersey are going to take their business to the place they can catch the most fish, and right now, that’s not Long Island. Right now, the only thing New York’s delegates to the ASMFC seem to be effective at is taking it lying down. These decisions have taken place while a New York delegate has served as the ASMFC’s chairman, which is appalling. In addition, New York’s third delegate, John McMurray, who has somehow managed to become known as the most notorious and hypocritical anti-fishermen fishermen in the state, is the antithesis of who should be appointed to the ASMFC and must be removed. If they won’t fight for hardworking New Yorkers, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) must appoint delegates who will. Middle-class Long Islanders are losing their vessels and family businesses over bad policy, and they can’t afford to wait. With their livelihoods relying on the health and vitality of our community’s waterways, there’s no doubt our area fishermen are committed to protecting and preserving our environment, but when New Jersey fishermen are catching twice the fish in the

same waters, they’re unfairly bearing the burden. For example, thanks to the advocacy of New Jersey’s delegates on behalf of New Jersey’s anglers, New Jersey’s commercial summer flounder quota of 1,500 pounds per week at the height of the season is more than triple New York’s commercial summer flounder quota of 490 pounds per week this season. That’s why I’m calling on New York to follow the successful model of other states like New Jersey in going into noncompliance to finally take a stand for New York anglers who continue to get screwed. Noncompliance is never the first option, but allows New York to set its own fair and equitable quota and provide immediate relief as we continue to urge state delegates to the ASMFC to get their act together. In 2017, with those at every level of government and side of the aisle on board, the State of New Jersey proposed its own quota for recreational summer flounder (aka fluke), was found “out of compliance” by the ASMFC, appealed the ASMFC’s decision all the way to the secretary of commerce and won. Last year, I helped to secure House passage of the largest fishing reform legislation in a decade, the Strengthening Fishing Communities and Increasing Flexibility in Fisheries Management Act, which improved federal fisheries law so regulations and quotas can be more transparent, equitable and fair, and improves data collection and science and ends the current arbitrary 10year rebuilding timeline by replacing it with a more flexible approach that helps fishermen while preserving important fisheries. This Congress, the House must once again pass this important legislation, and the Senate must finally take action to send it to the president’s desk. It is imperative that New York State step up to the plate for our fishermen as well and pursue alternative data collection methods so that flawed decisions made by the ASMFC can be challenged. The State of Florida is instituting its own data collection program on red snapper, utilizing state resources from local universities to do the science and statistics. With world-class marine science institutions at Stony Brook University, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, and Cornell University that can do the research, this is the model New York should be following. Since my time in the New York State Senate when I led the successful effort to repeal the saltwater fishing license fee, I’ve never stopped fighting for hardworking Long Islanders and to protect and preserve the waterways that so many of them rely on, and we cannot stop now. As we head into this year’s fishing season, we are reminded of just how urgent it is to turn the tide for our local fishermen. Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) represents New York’s 1st Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives.

account, the respective total leave and remain votes were very close, which is where we came in — a divided nation with a divided parliament and parties internally divided. The cross-Europe vote showed a fragmentation of parties, with the establishment center-left and center-right bloc losing power. The populist parties in Britain, France and Italy showed gains but surprisingly little elsewhere, notably in Holland. There was a general message that the EU needs to address growth, security, immigration (again) and climate change (the U.S. please note). Still, with a turnout in excess of 50 percent, there are indications the Europeans still see their union as the future. In the wake of the Brexit debacle, it seems the other Euro populist movements are determined to fight for their cause from inside the EU, not on the outside with little influence. Incidentally, I was impressed by the BBC World News TV election coverage Sunday, May 26, and its first-class presenter Ros Atkins. I learned a lot about the EU, its procedures, the debating arguments and how countries from Germany to Latvia voted. If only Brexit voters had been educated likewise.

Embarrassingly, Britain’s pragmatic standing in the world seems to be falling by the day. I’ve lost count of the number of barbed

BREXIT

Continued from A5

Monty Python jokes I’ve seen in print. As my good friend John Ridley, of Hildenborough, Kent, told me, “I can’t recall any other democratic country committing an act of such extreme self-harm ever before.” The Brexit fiasco shows on a macro level that elections do matter and do have consequences — in this instance, for an entire nation and its future. And the dangers of putting such a critical issue to an ill-informed public by way of a loosely worded referendum have been fully exposed. If there is a lesson for us all, it is a message that TBR News Media carries at every election: Your vote counts, please vote — and do understand what you’re voting for. That applies from presidential elections to the local fire departments, libraries and schools (the turnout for the recent Three Village Central School District budget vote was abysmal). With Brexit still unresolved, I am readying myself for a part 3 Your Turn article but further patience may be required on the part of myself and TBR readers. Will there be a second referendum, general election, another EU extension or a hard no deal?

Duck Pond Day makes a splash in Wading River

BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Locals were out in force June 2 for the 25th annual Duck Pond Day, and though there was a conspicuous lack of fowl in the pond, visitors got to have a taste of music from the Jan Hanna Band, pet young calves and goats at a stand by Bakewicz farms and check out the wares of a

multitude of local vendors. Hosted by the Wading River-Shoreham Chamber of Commerce, events started at 8:30 with a 5K run, where the $1,500 raised from the run was donated to the Fight Like a Girl Army, a Wading River-based nonprofit that fundraises for breast cancer research and local scholarships.

New LGBT center opens in Hauppauge

BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

For Long Island’s LGBT community, a new 15,000 squarefoot center is hoping to become the go-to center for helping those in the gay, bisexual and transgender communities. On May 31, on the eve of Pride Month, community members and elected officials gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony of the nonprofit association LGBT Network’s new facility at 125 Kennedy Drive, Suite 100, Hauppauge. The new center will feature 7,500 square feet of community space which includes a café and workforce development program for young people. The Hauppauge facility will be the nation’s largest suburban LGBT center yet. When LGBT Network president and CEO, David Kilmnick, began the organization 25 years ago, individuals were simply looking for a place to be themselves. “Twenty-five years later that need is just as great, if not even greater considering the climate we live in today — hate crimes are on the rise,” he said. The organization’s beginning began during Kilmnick’s time as a graduate student. As part of a project, he conducted a workshop in several school districts throughout Long Island, talking to students about growing up LGBT in the suburbs. He said after every workshop a few individuals would come up and ask him if there was a place to go where they could meet people like themselves. “When I heard this from kids across the Island, I knew this project had to turn into something more,” he said. The new site will include meeting and conference facilities, expansive health and human service programs including dropin HIV testing five days a week, year-round arts and cultural programs, as well as additional services for LGBT-headed families and LGBT immigrants. The LGBT Network will employ more than 55 full-time staff at the new facility, making it one of the top 10 percent of employers in the region. The LGBT Network president said he has heard from numerous individuals that if it wasn’t for the organization they don’t know if they’d be alive. “Our centers are saving lives every day, and this center will continue to do that for now and the next generations,” he said. “So today we begin a new chapter in helping all Long Islanders to be themselves, stay healthy and change the world.” Suffolk County Legislature Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory (D-Amityville) shared his personal experiences of being a parent to his son, who came out to him as gay when he was 12 while they were getting ice cream. “At first I was concerned, you don’t want your child to be a target,” he said. “Now there is a safe place for our youth and others to go.” Gregory said he has supported the organization for quite some time and is glad the new site is finally open. “This center will be great for future generations,” he said. The nonprofit’s reach extends now into Long Island City all the way to the East End. The organization is supporting an initiative called Teach LGBT NY, which is a bill that will require LGBT history to be required curriculum. Also, in a couple of months, shovels will go into the ground in Bay Shore at the organization’s former center location to build 75 units of LGBT and LGBT-friendly affordable senior housing.

Editorial

Change direction Mental health is often a topic people prefer to avoid discussing, but thanks to Dante Lombardo, a young former Marine who shared his story last month with TBR News Media, we now have the opportunity to emphasize the importance of mental health and wellness. Give an Hour is a national network of professionals who extend free mental health care to support veterans and communities impacted by tragedy. After reading Lombardo’s story, they’ve asked him, as he and his high school friends embark on a cross-country bike excursion, to join the global campaign, Change Direction, which aims to raise awareness to help change the culture surrounding mental health issues. We are thrilled that our newspaper is bringing people together and want to do our part to help open the public discussion on the topic. As listed on Give an Hour’s website, www.giveanhour.org, here are the five signs of emotional suffering that indicate someone may need help: • Personality changes: People in this situation may behave in ways that seem different or don’t seem to fit their values. • Uncharacteristically anxious, agitated or moody: People in more extreme situations may be unable to sleep, may explode in anger at a minor problem or have difficulties controlling his or her temper. • Withdrawal: Someone who used to be socially engaged may pull away from family and friends and stop taking part in activities that used to be enjoyable. In more severe cases, the person may start failing to make it to work or school. Not to be confused with the behavior of someone who is more introverted, this sign is marked by a change in a person’s typical sociability. • Neglecting self-care and engaging in risky behavior: Someone may let personal hygiene deteriorate, or the person may start abusing alcohol or illicit substances or engaging in other self-destructive behavior that may alienate loved ones. • Hopelessness and overwhelmed by circumstances: Have you noticed someone who used to be optimistic and now can’t find anything about which to be hopeful? That person may be suffering from extreme or prolonged grief or feelings of worthlessness or guilt. People in this situation may say the world would be better off without them, suggesting suicidal thinking. If you recognize someone suffering with these symptoms, the professionals from Change Direction encourage you to reach out, to connect, to inspire hope and to offer your help. They say it’s important to show compassion and to display a willingness to find a solution when a person may not have the will or drive to do it alone. The campaign organizers emphasize that it may take more than one offer, and you may need to reach out to others who share your concern about the person who is suffering. The bottom line is that if everyone is open and honest about emotional health and well-being, together we can prevent pain and suffering and those in need will get the help that they deserve. You can learn more about this topic at: www. changedirection.org. If you missed Lombardo’s story, you can find it online at: www.tbrnewsmedia.com/tag/dante-lombardo/.

Letters to the editor

High school students help to build bridges

On May 23, I had the pleasure of attending an event at Ward Melville High School, sponsored by the newly formed Muslim Student Association. The event was called “Ever Wondered About the Tradition of Ramadan?” and invited the community to join a discussion on Muslim traditions and culture and break fast together, in an effort to reduce Islamphobia through meaningful dialogue and education. The evening was beautifully organized by the students, and I came away with deeper understanding and a stronger sense of community. The keynote speaker, Dr. Hafiz Ur Rehman, spoke about the connections between our cultures, and how the act of breaking bread and sharing a meal together goes a long way toward creating connections. I was also pleased to hear from Town of Brookhaven Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station), who spoke about the need for communities to practice acceptance to truly thrive. At a time when too many of our politicians are seeking to divide with their rhetoric, it was refreshing and encouraging to see the opposite happening in our community. At the Iftar meal, I sat and spoke with members of the community. As Dr. Rehman said, having the opportunity to break bread together allowed us to talk not only about our faiths, but about our common experiences in our schools and community. Though we come from different faiths, we have a shared

interest in building a strong, accepting and welcoming place in which our children can grow up. I was truly moved by the maturity and poise of these students who organized and ran this event. As an educator, I have witnessed teenagers work through solidifying their sense of identity and community. For many of these students, the choice to proudly embrace their faith and culture is accompanied by fear of discrimination. I am always amazed by how young people rise to and often beyond the moment at hand, and teach all of us about what community means,

and what courage and empathy looks like. The young people are the ones who will lead us to be a society where we build bridges rather than walls, where we appreciate each other’s uniqueness while embracing our common humanity. As an educator and parent in the Three Village community, I am grateful to the Ward Melville Muslim Student Association for breaking bread and sharing the tradition of Iftar with my family. Shoshana Hershkowitz South Setauket

Trump’s activities create more doubts The latest from Donald J. Trump’s memoir. In Japan, he praised the North Korean dictator who starves his people, explodes nuclear weapons — two just recently — and says this does not violate the United Nations Resolutions against nukes being exploded. He trusts what Kim said to him about his (Kim’s) toys.

The dictator Russian Vladimir Putin, Trump accepts Putin’s view that Russia didn’t interfere with our 2016 election, but what does Putin have on Trump and his family? One must ask oneself if this is the man our children should see as a role model? I doubt it. I also doubt that the Republican enablers read the Mueller report;

perhaps like Trump, the report was too long. But perhaps these Republican enablers will be asked by their grandchildren, “What did you do when President Trump tried to destroy our democracy?” Herbert Laub Stony Brook

Seeking words of wisdom for our graduates

W

e pack our cars, suitcases and purses. We bring cameras, camcorders, extra batteries, chargers and cards filled with positive messages and gifts. At this time of year, we bear witness to the conclusion of one educational course — primary, middle or high school, college or even graduate school — as we and the graduate prepare for the next step. D. None In between bites of the above from the buffet, we BY DANIEL DUNAIEF pause for proud pictures with the graduate and we

share our admiration for what he or she has accomplished even as we anticipate the next adventure. Most of these ceremonies involve walking, sitting, standing and cheering, eating and driving. The action takes a backseat to the words and sentiment that mark the occasion. The graduation speakers offer personal anecdotes and words of wisdom, even as they recognize that short speeches, particularly for those eager to fill an empty stomach or discharge a full bladder, are a welcome part of the day. While we’re milling around, we have ample opportunities to impart our own wisdom, to share encouraging words and to provide the kind of tailwind that accelerates the next phase of life. So, what do we say? Did we pack our belongings, but neglect to choose from the wealth of words that can fill a sail with air, that can help us feel capable of defying gravity, that can enable us to see through this moment to a magnificent future? How often do we watch an interview

with someone who has accomplished the unimaginable, who doesn’t know what to say or who is it at a loss for words when someone shoves a microphone in that person’s direction? We have time to consider the right words, to be supportive, and to make our trip to another state or another school meaningful, even if the graduate is too close to the focal point of his or her life to know how to react to the torrent of feelings and thoughts. We can rely on a Hallmark card, a Thesaurus or a set of clichés to share our thoughts, or we can take a moment to find the right words, in between all our packing, our search for the right gift and our purchasing plane tickets. Someday, a daughter graduate may be sitting on a plane heading for a meeting in Salt Lake City and may wonder how she got there and whether she can succeed in the next phase. Maybe she’ll recall the moment you took her aside, placed your hand on her shoulder, smiled in her eyes and suggested she paved her own

path with perspiration — if she appreciates alliteration. She may recall how you enveloped her hand in yours when you reminded her that everything, even a moment of weakness, provides opportunities for the next success. Perfection, she’ll recall as she remembers how you accidentally spit on her cheek when you started to speak, isn’t about the perfect achievement but about the perfect effort. She will recall the moment you told her how much she inspired you with her awareness of the needs of others and with her grace under pressure. If your graduate is anything like the ones in my family, for whom skepticism and cynicism hover nearby, he or she may roll their eyes and search for a phone to text a friend to ask if the recipient of the message can believe what you just said. Someday, the graduate or that friend may borrow a word, phrase or idea from the ones you shared, providing fuel to a tank that seemed empty and converting the next impossible task into a reality.

story about the source of the grudge. Rather than being a victim, think of yourself as heroic. Then think of the good things in your life so as to balance the harm. And remember that life doesn’t always turn out the way we want. Luskin emphasizes that forgiveness is a learnable skill. It just takes a little practice, he advises. Now all of the above sounds good but I have another track to suggest. To sooth a grudge, there is nothing quite as satisfying as revenge. And the best revenge? A life well lived. It’s an old adage but true. So what makes for a life well lived? I guess there are as many answers as there are people, but I can tell you mine. Make your home a happy and comfortable place by creating a room or a corner just for yourself. All you need is a special chair with a fluffy pillow or a bedside table with your latest reading choices or music source, and of course a picture you love on the wall. Take an aromatic bath. Welcome friendship and love

in your life. If all else fails, get a dog. When the weather is glorious, take a guilt-free walk, even for five minutes. Say hello to strangers in the post office or the supermarket aisle and watch a smile appear on their faces. Make yourself something you really like to eat, and if you shouldn’t be eating it, just eat a little. Do some kind of work that is worthy of you, then take pride in the way you carry it out. Clean out just one desk drawer and feel like you have your life under control. Remember to laugh at life’s little incongruities. Go see a good movie. Or a play. Or attend a concert. These can all be found locally. Plan a trip, even if it’s only for a Saturday afternoon to the East End. Then go on it and see how many new things there are to see. Buy a shirt or an ice cream cone. Celebrate every possible occasion and even celebrate just for the heck of it. Take a nap, if only for 20 minutes. And for Pete’s sake, read a newspaper, preferably a hometown paper because that tends to have more good news!

Revenge is sweet A recent article in The New York Times asked, “What is your oldest or most cherished grudge?” Everyone holds grudges, I guess, and they can range from some perceived slight or cutting remark to deep hurt or betrayal. While we all know that forgiveness is a lot healthier than anger, still there is something immutable about a deeply held grudge. However hard and sincerely you try to let go of it and go on with your life, Between it’s impossible to you and me entirely discard the pain. Some BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF people even admit to tending their

grudges like a garden. “Holding onto a grudge really is an ineffective strategy for dealing with a life situation that you haven’t been able to master,” said Dr. Frederic Luskin, founder of the Stanford Forgiveness Project, as reported in separate Times articles by Tim Herrera and Katherine Schulten. The psychological study suggested that “skillsbased forgiveness training may prove effective in reducing anger as a coping style, reducing perceived stress and physical health symptoms, and thereby may help reduce” the stress we put on our immune and cardiovascular systems. Carrying anger into old age can result in higher levels of inflammation and chronic illness. So how do we discard grudges? How do we forgive? Luskin urges that we recognize three things. First that forgiveness is for you, not the offender. Second that it’s best to do it now. And finally that forgiveness is about freeing yourself. Then to continue the process, change the
