TOWN

Brookhaven boasts new green initiatives

As far as the Town of Brookhaven is concerned, going green is not just a casual practice — it’s a moral obligation to ensure Long Island’s future. In the last few months, Supervisor Ed Romaine (R) and members of the town board have launched a series of environmentally friendly initiatives and continued ongoing efforts that encourage local residents to reduce their carbon footprints and preserve the serenity of their surroundings. “Whenever there are ways to benefit the environment, I’m 100 percent involved [and] I’m blessed by an extremely supportive town board,” Romaine said, highlighting an especially strong partnership with Councilwoman Jane Bonner (C-Rocky Point). “I don’t want to

say Jane is my environmental soulmate, but she and I are on the exact same page. She is one of my cheerleaders in every manner, shape or form.” In May, Bonner held her fifth bi-annual Go Green event at the Rose Caracappa Senior Center in Mount Sinai. It’s the town’s biggest recycling event where residents can dispose of unwanted medication and prescriptions and recycle old TVs and computers, as well as paper. The e-waste drive gathered 15,000 pounds of electronic waste and shredded 13,580 pounds of paper products and 26 boxes of unwanted pharmaceutical drugs, according to the town. The councilwoman also hosted a Homeowner’s Guide to Energy Efficiency forum at the center later in the month, educating residents on how to get a free energy audit, affordable home energy improvements and save $1,000 a year on home energy bills. Through this effort, less fossil fuels are used to heat and light homes. “We take it very seriously,” Bonner said of the town’s green initiatives. “We have a moral obligation to be good stewards of the Earth and this transcends party lines. Regardless of party affiliation, we all know we can do a better job of taking care of the planet.” Aside from providing free compost and mulch to residents at Brookhaven Town Hall, officials also recently utilized a $5,000 grant to rip up the back lawn of the property to plant and restore native Long Island grasses, from which seeds can be collected and used.

Other environmental actions taken by Brookhaven: - A 127-acre solar farm called Shoreham Solar Commons will be constructed on the recently closed Tallgrass Golf Course. - The extension of the Pine Barrens to include 800 acres of national property around the former Shoreham nuclear plant will go forward upon Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D) signed authorization. - A multiyear project to convert all 40,000 of Brookhaven’s streetlights to LED bulbs has begun with 5,000 already converted. - Through a partnership with U.S Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the town has secured funding to fix stormwater infrastructures along the North Shore, from Miller Place to Shoreham. - A center at Ceder Beach in Mount Sinai has been established to grow millions of oysters and sea clams that filter and clean the water.

Above, other green initiatives by Brookhaven Town. Town Supervisor Ed Romaine and Councilman Dan Panico, on left, with the new food scrap composters. In June, the town officially authorized the nonprofit Art & Nature Group Inc. to transform Brookhaven’s historic Washington Lodge property into a community nature center that offers environmental education programs. Romaine and Councilman Dan Panico (R-Manorville) organized Brookhaven’s Food Scrap Composting pilot program at town hall last month, with hopes to expand it as a townwide initiative.

Through the program, town employees can deposit food waste, such as banana peels and coffee grinds, into organic material collection containers placed throughout the buildings, which are then collected and composted to be used for garden beds around town buildings. “We must provide alternative waste management solutions like these if we are going to provide a cleaner, greener earth for future generations,” Panico said in a statement.

LIRR schedule changes due to construction at Penn Station have been a hardship for some riders this summer.

By Jenna Lennon The Long Island Rail Road is experiencing some delays after the Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced Amtrak’s emergency repair work beginning July 10, according to information on the agency’s website. Amtrak, along with the LIRR, have major transit hub stations at Penn Station in Manhattan. According to the MTA, the work will affect about 10,000 customers during weekday rush hours and will be completed September 1, and the repairs are getting some mixed responses from commuters. As a student at Stony Brook University, 19-year-old Jas Preet said her commute is mildly affected by the shifting train times when she’s leaving campus. “There’s been delays, and they changed the times to go to Stony Brook,” she said during an interview at the station overlooking the campus. “It makes it a little worse. I have to take the later train now because my class ends at 11:30 [a.m.], and I would take the 11:46 [a.m.] train, but now I have to take the 12:10 [p.m.] train.” Several commuters said they aren’t affected by delays or new train times at all because they don’t take the LIRR all the way to Penn Station. Stony Brook University student, Vikas Desai, “was not aware of the construction” occurring at Penn Station this summer, she said. However, Ron DiBiase of Setauket, who said he travels via the LIRR everyday from Stony Brook station, said the delays make his morning commute “much more difficult.” “The trains, on more than one occasion, are very congested, and it’s a shame,” he said. “They should’ve invested the time and funding earlier not to impact millions of people during the summer.”

The MTA has added more cars to several trains to increase capacity for each trip. They have also introduced up to a 25 percent fare reduction for commuters who avoid Penn Station during the summer months. Summer train delays come just a few weeks after the State Senate approved construction for a third track which will be built along the existing two tracks of the LIRR from Floral Park to Hicksville during the course of several years. Construction for the third track will cost an estimated $1.95 billion. For commuters traveling during what has been dubbed the “summer of hell,” one state lawmaker is working to give riders some relief from delays and schedule changes that have resulted since the start of repair projects. State Assemblyman Chad Lupinacci (RHuntington Station) is drafting a bill that would give riders a rebate for their weekly or monthly train tickets. “There’s now a decrease in quality and efficiency that’s no longer just a strain on riders’ schedules,” Lupinacci said in a phone interview. “It’s now affecting professional and personal lives, making commuters late to business meetings and family dinners.” The state assemblyman said he started working on the draft for the Long Island Rail Road Rider Rebate Bill after he received several hundred calls from constituents voicing their concerns and complaints with the current train service. According to Lupinacci the rebate would equal 25 percent of the price of a rider’s weekly or monthly ticket. If and when the bill passes, customers would be able to redeem their rebates at ticket booths at train stations. For more information about LIRR schedule changes visit www.lirrsummerschedule.com.

County

Bellone announces plan to reduce property taxes, share services By Kevin Redding kevin@tbrnewspapers.com

Through some good old-fashioned teamwork, Suffolk County has a plan to save millions of dollars for its residents. On Monday, July 31, Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D) revealed the blueprint for SuffolkShare, a new shared services initiative to be utilized among county municipalities with an aim to save a projected $37 million for taxpayers over two years. The 10-point plan emerged out of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D) Countywide Shared Services Initiative, a state project signed into law this year that requires county, town and village officials to vote on a plan to reduce property taxes through efficiency, collaboration and combining services in order to “eliminate duplicative” ones. Cuomo’s law called for the county to submit its localized plan to the Legislature by Aug. 1 and the finalized version of the plan must be voted on by the Suffolk Shared Services Panel — made up of town supervisors, village mayors and the county executive — by Sept. 15. “SuffolkShare will be a statewide model for how municipalities can work together and save money for their residents without sacrificing the quality of services they have come to expect,” Bellone said. “Governor Cuomo deserves credit for putting local governments in charge of their own destiny and figuring out how best to deliver true efficiencies among themselves. I want to thank our towns and villages for their extraordinary work and partnership in helping to produce this draft plan, and I look forward to working with the County Legislature to solicit their ideas and feedback as we move forward in this historic process.” Under SuffolkShare, officials assembled in the last few months a laundry list of ideas to bring governments together and save county green. Among the 10 concepts are a virtual municipal service store will be created to provide a web menu of services and assets; a virtual intermunicipal chat room, dubbed MuniChat, will be developed for representatives to brainstorm ideas and share information; services like tree removal, pumpout boat services, graffiti removal, truck washing, recycling and website development will be offered; and an Inter-County Project Program as well as an Office of Intermunicipal Coordination. According to the Shared Services Initiative page on the New York State website, property tax is the largest tax burden to

Suffolk County executive Steve Bellone announced a plan to reduced property taxes in the county. taxpayers, with the average resident paying “2.5 times more in property taxes than in income taxes.” “The goal of this new initiative is to save taxpayers money by identifying collaborative opportunities for shared services between as many local governments as possible,” the site said. Suffolk Deputy County Executive Jon Kaiman said SuffolkShare is a win-win not just for taxpayers but for governments that are now encouraged to put aside their differences. “This initiative is a great opportunity to engage our local municipal leaders and learn from each other,” Kaiman said. “We all want to find the best practices, most efficient methods, and the most cost-effective ways to provide services. This process will get this done and we will do it together.” Municipalities will receive one-time matching funds from the state if the finalized plan is approved in September. There will be three Suffolk County-required public hearings taking place throughout the month to get public input across different municipalities. The Town of Brookhaven is also a finalist in the running for a $20 million grant as part of the state’s Municipal Consolidation and Efficiency Competition, which has a similar stated goal of reducing property taxes.

And home he misses. “How much I miss my bed,” he said. in our case, riding across the country.”

“There’s lot of chatting with the others, lots of silence, and lots of wind.” He has ridden through sprawling peaks and snow-capped mountains in Montana, crossed over valleys in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, past cornfields in Kansas and said he has loved “taking in the big, beautiful country on two wheels.” But for Carey, nothing compares to the experience of meeting locals from each state during the ride’s friendship visits. After a morning of pedaling, cyclists visit local groups supporting people with disabilities and take part in a long list of activities, from drawing with kids to playing wheelchair basketball and kickball to having lengthy conversations with teens and adults who face challenges every day. “It’s been extremely heartwarming,” he said of the visits. “Many of the organizations say it’s like Christmas when we come by. We just make sure the adults and kids are having a great time. You don’t realize everything you have until realizing it can be taken away like with the people we’ve met that have suffered injuries, and with those who are disabled their whole life.” Referring to the impact it has had on his fellow cyclists, he said, “I’ve never seen a group of guys cry as much as I do now.” He recalled a special moment in Casper, Wyoming, when a man who recently suffered a brain tumor relayed a resonating message. “We were all about to get up and go play some games over in a park when he stood up and sat us all back down to tell us not to stress over the little things in life,” Carey said. “Because, he said, you can wake up one day and have something like what he experienced happen to you and your whole life could change. He told us to enjoy every second we have as we are, which was really touching coming from a guy now considered disabled. It kind of just pointed out all the stupid things we stress about in our regular lives.” Preparation for the journey consisted of getting on a bike just a week and a half

before heading to Seattle, Carey admitted, but being an athlete during his days in Miller Place provided him with muchneeded mental stamina. He played soccer, which he competed in at a national level, and lacrosse, too. “I’m so excited for him, he’s always been in terrific shape and he probably has thighs the size of tree trunks now,”Carey’s mother Elizabeth Hine joked. “I’m proud as heck of him. Between seeing the country and all the people, he says this is the best summer he’s ever had.” Just two days into the cross-country ride, Carey said the group logged 125 miles over 24 hours while passing through Mount Rainier National Park in Washington state. “Everyone on that route, except one person who suffered hypothermia, finished, and at the end of it we all looked at each other and said, ‘That’s the hardest thing we’ve ever done in our lives,’” Carey said. “We all say that our bike is our disability and we have to overcome it each day.”

Veterans and families set sail on Northport Harbor

Are you at your wit’s end trying to get rid of it?

Clear skies and sunshine greeted some of our nation’s bravest this past weekend as they set out on Northport Harbor for “Let’s Take a Veteran Sailing.” The annual event was founded by SailAhead, a not-for-profit that works to help wounded veterans by using sailing as a form of therapy, and this year more than 140 veterans and their families came out to the water. Navy veteran Kim Humphrey served for 25 years until her career ended as a result of an injury she sustained during Operation Enduring Freedom. For her, sailing with the nonprofit group is one of the best choices she made, because one of the worst things she could do was stay indoors, alone. “I started out sailing every Friday with them,” she said at the event. “It has meant a lot, and it gives you accountability, because now you have to report to somebody instead of being at home and staying depressed. I was in the Navy, water had a calming affect for me.” Humphrey has been a consistent member of SailAhead since the beginning. The group hosted its third annual Let’s Take a Veteran Sailing day last Sunday, Aug. 6, which brought veterans and veteran families from all over the country and even outside of the country to the Centerport Yacht Club. They spent the afternoon and evening on a fleet of around 45 sailboats for a day that emphasized camaraderie and honored the veterans and their families, especially those who have lost members to depression and suicide. “These families all share the same burden of continuing to live after losing a loved one,” Sean Duclay, one of the founders of SailAhead said at the commencement ceremony before the veterans and families boarded their boats. “Families of soldiers do not get deployed, they do not carry heavy bags, they do not do endless pushups, they don’t all go abroad, they do not get put in harms way, they don’t even have to eat k-rations, yet they endure extreme sacrifices, and the biggest sacrifice is to lose a loved one.”

The Duclay brothers include Killian, the older brother who goes to Stony Brook University, and Sean, the younger brother who graduated high school this spring. Both were already strong sailors who loved sailing the waters of Huntington Bay and the Long Island Sound, and they, along with the rest of their family decided to use their love of sailing as a form of therapy to help veterans, starting the nonprofit in 2013. In 2015 the group hosted its first Let’s Take a Veteran Sailing day which gathered 90 veterans to sail on a fleet of around 30 boats. The event also honored Ryan James Day, a U.S. Army Ranger veteran who committed suicide in 2014 at the age of 21. His mother, father and two brothers attended the event and after a speech in remembrance of him, Ryan’s father Jim Day announced he would be giving $5,000 to Sail Ahead from the Ryan Day Memorial Fund.

SPORTS

Handicapped runner from Coram to compete in Suffolk marathon BY JENNA LENNON Stephen Norris was born with spina bifida, and despite being confined to a wheelchair, began “running” competitively five years ago to lose weight. He didn’t think running would turn into a hobby of his, but three years and 80 pounds later, the Coram resident was registering for his first race. When running about three miles became easy, that’s when Norris decided to “run a real race.” “After I completed a 5K, I thought ‘well maybe I can do a 10K,’” Norris said. “And after I did a 10K, I started flirting with the idea of doing a marathon, and then that is how I registered for the Long Island Marathon in May. After I finished, I was like ‘okay, I guess I am a marathon runner, so I guess I’ll do another one.’” Norris will be competing in the Suffolk County Marathon, his third marathon of the year, in October. The event is a qualifying race for the Boston Marathon. “I’m about 20 minutes away from a finishing time to qualify for Boston, so I’m pretty close,” he said. “I’m hoping I can bridge the gap in the next marathon.”

Although born with a birth defect where his spinal cord failed to develop properly, putting him in a wheelchair where he wasn’t able to develop his leg muscles, the competitor said he never let it affect him or his running. “I don’t feel like it makes a difference,” Norris said. “I don’t feel like I have a lot of hardships because of my disability.” Norris began running around the neighborhood to lose weight and 5Ks socially with a group of people he met through his weight loss journey. Although proud of her son, his mother Shelby never thought he’d make the transition to running marathons. “When he said he was going to do a marathon, I knew he would actually do it because he always finishes what he starts,” she said. “But when he decided to train for the longer runs, I was surprised. Although he did it, he didn’t always love it.” But he grew to love it and became addicted to the training. Norris’ training for longer races begins 16 weeks prior to the race and consists of three different runs a week. “I do an integral speed run and then I do a medium distance run about five to eight miles, and then I do a long-distance run on Sundays no less than 10 miles,” he said. “Then, I build my mileage up over a quick two-week period where I peak at a 20-mile run two weeks before the marathon.” When it comes to carb-loading the night before, Norris chooses not to participate in the infamous pasta night. Instead, he has a tradition of eating a stack of pancakes. His mother attends every race and said she’s seen how grueling the training can be, but loves to watch her son’s hard work pay off at the finish line. “I know every single day he’s not thrilled to be out there, especially in the heat, so when all of that pays off and he crosses the finish line … it’s indescribable,” she said. Norris is happy to have his mother by his side and hopes to inspire others to work toward their goals. “My mother has been there from the

a baseline, and work up from that. No matter how slow you are or how fast you go just start, and eventually you’ll get somewhere where you can run a real race.”

ciable once they are out of the service. “One of the key pieces is getting the social part right,” Hodges said. “Once they are out [of the service] they might not know how to network. They have to have a balanced existence.” As each boat pulled its flags up the mast, they also raised a flag with the number 219 sewn onto it. The Department of Veterans Affairs released a study that said on average 22 veterans commit suicide each day, meaning every 10 days a full U.S. Marine Corps company, 220 men and women, is lost at home from suicide. The number 219 signifies the hope that one less veteran will die and be saved through building bonds with people and fellow veterans. “There’s a camaraderie to this, and something that veterans need is a calming effect.” Humphrey said. “When you see someone that you started out something with you’re at ease, immediately. Because this can be a very overwhelming environment. When we see each other, we gravitate towards each other.”

The flotilla of sailboats, many owned by volunteers, was anchored in Northport Harbor, and after the ceremonies the veterans were ferried to their sailing vessel that was put to sea with the unfurling of sails and the raising of flags. This was the first time sailing for many veterans. “We just found out about it two weeks ago, so we immediately signed up for it,” veteran and Port Jefferson resident Scott Roberts said. He and 25 other veterans who attended were members of nonprofit Samaritan Village that has programs to support veterans. “This is my first time being on a sailboat along with these guys, it’s very interesting, and it’s very well put together.” veteran and Samaritan Village member Kevin Troope said. Fredrick Hodges, a social worker for Samaritan Village veteran programs said one of the hardest things for veterans is being so-

OpiniOn Editorial

Letters to the editor

Red light camera program is a detriment

Photos from Darcy Krauss

Leukemia survivor Aubri Krauss, at left above, collected Band-Aid box donations for Stony Brook University Hospital’s hematology and oncology unit.

Giving is great As the summer winds down and people across the North Shore prepare to return to their regular school year routines, it could be very easy to get selfish — selfish with time in an attempt to squeeze the last bit of freedom out of August. But that’s far from the case for several different groups of people undertaking incredible philanthropic efforts right in our own backyard. Joseph and Maddie Mastriano, 13 and 17 years old, respectively, took “squeezing” literally. The siblings, for a fifth consecutive summer, held a fundraising lemonade stand in Stony Brook, this time raising nearly $20,000 to be donated to Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. The event was a huge hit this year and garnered a lot of attention, so we hope it continues to grow in years to come. Joey Zangrillo, a Port Jefferson resident and business owner, recently returned home from a trip to Kenya, where he traveled for the purpose of assisting in the expansion of a much-needed orphanage and the construction of a well. The story will be told in detail in next week’s edition of The Port Times Record. Jack Soldano, a 12-year-old from Miller Place, announced in July he would be selling his four-figure comic book collection at Heritage Park in Mount Sinai this month to raise money for the Miller PlaceMount Sinai Historical Society’s efforts to save a historic house. Miller Place resident Cody Carey, along with 29 members of his fraternity, is wrapping up a cross-country bike trip, which is held annually to raise money for people with physical and mental disabilities. Middle Country school district student Aubri Krauss, who overcame a battle with leukemia after being diagnosed in 2011 has been collecting Band Aids as part of her yearly drive, which are donated to Stony Brook University Hospital’s hematology and oncology unit. Kimberly Williams, a science teacher in the Smithtown school district, recently joined an effort to send old sports uniforms to Uganda to be reused by kids in need. The end of summer malaise has not infected any of these admirable North Shore residents, and likely there are many others. We commend them for their incredibly selfless acts and hope they serve as an example for others. If you missed any of these stories, we encourage you to seek them out on our website, www.tbrnewsmedia.com, and if you know anyone donating their time with the purpose of bettering their community, we’d love to hear about it.

“The Suffolk County Red Light Safety Program uses automated enforcement to enhance the safety of motorists at red light intersections located within Suffolk County,” according to the county’s Traffic and Parking Violations Agency website. However, the 2015 report recently released by the agency tells a different story. A review of the data shows that 50 percent of the county’s red light camera intersections saw an increase in reported accidents over the previous year while 42 percent of red light camera intersections saw an increase in accidents involving injury. Those are startling statistics, although not entirely surprising, as last year’s report told a similar tale. How can the county continue to ignore that its “safety” program may be placing motorists in jeopardy? The report indicates that the county experienced an overall reduction in accidents at red light camera locations across Suffolk during the period, which is good news. However, that fact further underscores the concern over specific intersections and makes the county’s unwillingness to address potential safety fears all the more egregious. The cameras continue to roll at these

Legislator Rob Trotta in front of a red light camera. intersections with no thought of taking them offline. Despite the urging of countless motorists and several lawmakers, including myself, the administration has refused to entertain any suspension or re-evaluation of this program, which at best is flawed

File photo

and at worst dangerous. And, the reason for that is simple: the program continues to be what it always has been, more about dollars than sense.

Robert Trotta Suffolk County Legislator 13th District

Allocating federal funds While members of the Republican majority are competing to see who can make the deepest cuts, there is a budget proposal before Congress that would boost the economy for all of us while cutting the number of people in poverty in half. It’s The People’s Budget, proposed by the Congressional Progressive Caucus. The People’s Budget invests in safe and productive

infrastructure, education, affordable housing, health care and nutrition, childcare and working family tax credits. It calls for increasing the minimum wage. These investments will create 3.6 million jobs and set us on a path to cut poverty in half in 10 years. The People’s Budget invests $2 trillion in infrastructure spending, expanding rural broadband, universal prekinder-

garten and free college tuition at state and community colleges. Every year without fail our elected representatives give over half of the discretionary budget to the Pentagon, leaving less than half to be divided up to fund education, health care, environmental spending, infrastructure and everything else.

Elizabeth Gonzalez Dolginko Northport

Northwell-Mather story was unfair That was a fine piece of objective journalism that headlined the Aug. 3 edition of The Port Times Record. To put State Sen. LaValle (R-Port Jefferson) on the front page with all his negativity toward Mather Hospital and the visual puffiness toward Stony Brook University Hospital was

ridiculous. The man’s name is already on the SBU stadium, what did you think he would say? In my opinion Mather made a fine choice. The Northwell system is far above Stony Brook despite Stony Brook constantly blowing its own horn. Who pays for the full-page

ads in the local paper every week? If Stony Brook is a state facility, then it is spending my tax money for those ads. Perhaps LaValle might comment on that.

OpiniOn Who’s on first in Trump’s Washington ballgame

I

t’s become an Abbott and Costello comedy routine, except in the nation’s capital. Let’s take a look: Trump: “Strange as it may seen, they give ball players nowadays very peculiar names.” Costello: “Funny names?” Trump: “Nicknames, nicknames. Now, on the Washington team, we have who’s on first, what’s on second, I don’t know is on third.” Costello: “That’s what I want to By Daniel Dunaief find out. I want you to tell me the names of the fellows on the Washington team.” Trump: “I’m telling you. Who’s on first, what’s on second, I don’t know is on third.” Costello: “You know the fellows’ names?” Trump: “Yes.”

D. None of the above

Costello: “Well, who’s playing first?” Trump: “Who was playing first, but I fired him.” Costello: “You fired him? Who did you fire?” Trump: “Yes. I most certainly did. It was time for a new first baseman. We’ve got a better one coming in to play first.” Costello: “Oh yeah? Who is that?” Trump: “No, who was on first.” Costello: “What are you asking me for?” Trump: “I’m not asking you, I’m telling you. Who was on first.” Costello: “I’m asking you, who’s on first?” Trump: “I already told you, not anymore.” Costello: “Not anymore is on first?” Trump: “Yes.” Costello: “You won’t tell me the name of the fellow on first base?” Trump: “Yes, not anymore.” Costello: “OK, so not anymore is playing first?” Trump: “He was, but he just left, too, so now I have no one.” Costello: “You don’t have a first baseman?” Trump: “Yes, I do, no one.” Costello: “How can no one play first?” Trump: “He’s very talented. He’s one

of the best players I’ve ever seen at the position. He’ll win games for us.” Costello: “When you pay the first baseman every month, who gets the money?” Trump: “He did, but no one gets it now.” Costello: “So, you’re not paying anyone?” Trump: “No, we’re paying no one. Sometimes his wife comes down and collects his paycheck.” Costello: “No one’s wife?” Trump: “Yes. After all, the man earns it.” Costello: “No one does?” Trump: “Absolutely.” Costello: “Washington has a good outfield?” Trump: “Oh, it’s great again.” Costello: “The left fielder’s name?” Trump: “Why.” Costello: “I don’t know, I just thought I’d ask.” Trump: “I just thought I’d tell you.” Costello: “Then tell me who’s playing left field?” Trump: “No, who was playing first, but he was fired.” Costello: “Stay out of the infield! The left fielder’s name?”

Trump: “Why.” Costello: “Why?” Trump: “I’m thinking of moving why to center field after he did such a great job in left.” Costello: “Who did a great job in left field?” Trump: “No, who only plays first and he’s not on the team anymore, so I don’t want to talk about him.” Costello: “You got a pitcher.” Trump: “Wouldn’t this be a fine team without a pitcher?” Costello: “Tell me the pitcher’s name.” Trump: “Tomorrow.” Costello: “Why not now?” Trump: “No, why is in left field. He never pitches, but he might play center field.” Costello: “Now when the guy at bat bunts the ball against tomorrow — me being a good catcher — I want to throw the guy out at first base, so I pick up the ball and throw it to no one.” Trump: “Now, that’s the first thing you’ve said right.” Costello: “I don’t even know what I’m talking about.”

The Cold War: It’s déjà vu all over again

T

he hottest real estate in Japan these days is a bomb shelter, with a starting price from $19,000. When I heard that reported on the radio, I was instantly transported back to my first-grade class where, upon a signal, we covered our heads with our coats and slid under our desks. It was the Cold War: Stalin and the Soviets were the enemy, and we had drills to prepare for By Leah S. Dunaief an atomic blast. One day, there were moviemakers at the school, before television became popular, and they recorded us taking cover for the newsreel that preceded the feature film in every movie theater. In fact, there were two feature films in those days, usually referred to as A and B movies, but first the viewers

were treated to the news of the week. I was in the front row of my class, so I could be clearly seen on the screen crouching beneath my desk. But I never saw myself because my parents usually didn’t go to the movies. Neighbors told us that I was front and center. Just as the movie seemed unreal to me, so did the Cold War and the atomic bomb from whose blast my raincoat was supposed to protect me. World War II had ended, and I grew up in the subsequent Cold War generation. I heard people talking about building bomb shelters, but I couldn’t imagine having one since we lived in an apartment in the middle of the city. It did occur to me to wonder where we would find shelter in the event we needed to, and I think I questioned my parents about that once, but they didn’t seem to want to discuss the subject so it never came up again. My schoolmates may have been fearful, but we never talked about the bomb. Then Stalin died, there was eventually detente with the Soviets, a popular novel appeared by Ian Fleming called

“From Russia with Love,” we watched the touring Bolshoi Ballet at the old Metropolitan Opera House, something in my gut unclenched, and no one had atomic bomb drills anymore. I hate the idea that children in Japan are now growing up under the shadow of a nuclear bomb threat. Those in South Korea are surely afraid and, for that matter, now those in Seattle. In fact, fear seems to be rearing its ugly head in the United States, a country ordinarily known for its optimism and “pursuit of happiness.” For example, I would not like to be an immigrant here today and certainly not an illegal one. Those in that category must be living in fear day and night. I have no sympathy of course for illegal immigrants who have committed serious crimes and are therefore most likely to be deported. But the idea that ICE representatives are patrolling the courthouses, looking for illegals, certainly creates an atmosphere of people being hunted. I would also not like to be an employer whose business depended on the seasonal help of immigrants.

Industries like hospitality, restaurants and farming haven’t known if their legal immigrant workers would arrive. Without that extra help, many businesses cannot survive because there are not enough Americans willing to do those low-level jobs. Ditto for those with special needs who require aides at home. On the other side of the ledger, our economic picture seems rosy. The stock market is setting new records almost every day, as corporations are being rewarded for making profits and the prospect of deregulation encourages investment. The unemployment rate is the lowest in some 20 years. Yet there is a great divide between financial and political happiness. Many of the same people happy with the economy are unhappy with the political picture, bemoaning the chaos in Washington, D.C. As we have always done, we will soldier on with our domestic problems. We are doing less well reacting to the foreign challenges, fear prompting us to answer threats with threats.
