Let me help you rest easy knowing your family is protected.

Career law enforcement officer and Kings Park resident Larry Zacarese (R) defeated state Sen. Phil Boyle (R-East Islip) Sept. 12 to capture the Republican primary in the race to fill the sheriff’s seat in Suffolk County, which is up for grabs following a May announcement by incumbent Vincent DeMarco (R) that he wouldn’t seek another term. Though the results were listed as unofficial by the Suffolk County Board of Elections at the time of print, Zacarese garnered 12,323 votes to Boyle’s 9,586. “First and foremost, I want to thank my family, friends and all of the volunteers who worked tirelessly alongside me for the past 10 months,” Zacarese said on his campaign website. “I also want to thank all of the primary voters in Suffolk County who placed their trust in me and took time out of their busy lives to vote for me today. I am humbled by their support. Tomorrow we start fresh with laser focus on the general election.”

Boyle could not be reached for comment. The general election to select the next Suffolk County sheriff will take place Nov. 7 and will pit Zacarese against former Huntington Town Board member Stuart Besen (D). Boyle has not ruled out a run on the Democratic ticket.

Correction In the Sept. 7 issue of The Times of Middle Country, we mistakenly ran a brief encouraging voters to participate in a primary for Suffolk County district attorney that was not taking place. Democrat Dan Caroleo will no longer be the challenger in the county sheriff race. We regret the errors.

Clockwise from left, WWe wrestler and Smithtown resident Mick Foley signs autographs at Fourth World Comics in Smithtown for fans and young children, including Austin, Texas resident Chance Clanton, on left, and the Castoro family of Smithtown, below, to raise money for nonprofit KultureCity’s Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

Mick Foley visits comic book shop for a cause WWE wrestling star, Smithtown resident signs autographs to raise money for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts By Kevin Redding kevin@tbrnewspapers.com Wanting to help in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, wrestling icon and Smithtown resident Mick Foley stopped by a local comic book shop Sept. 7 to sign autographs for a cause close to home. The big-bearded and even bigger-hearted 52-year-old best known to WWE fans as Cactus Jack, Mankind and Dude Love visited Fourth World Comics on Route 111 in Smithtown to sign autographs, pose for pictures and raise money for KultureCity, a Birmingham, Alabama-based nonprofit advocating for autism awareness and acceptance. Foley helped raise $3,240 for the organization that is helping dozens of special needs families that have been affected by the Category 4 storm in Houston, Texas. When he found out the group had members on the ground in Texas, and special needs families were struggling with tornapart homes and lost items, he knew he had to get involved. The organization is also near and dear to Foley, because his son is autistic.

“Anyone who knows about children on the autism spectrum know they tend to thrive on regularity, and so to take everything they have and to suddenly turn that upside down is just devastating — even above and beyond what other families are going through,” Foley said. “This just seemed like a good way to make a difference. The money we raise may not change the world, but it will change the lives of these families.” As a frequent shopper and celebrity guest at Fourth World in recent years, Foley took his idea for the meet-and-greet fundraiser directly to Glenn Fischette, the comic book store’s owner. “It was really last minute, [but] as we can’t really go down there and help, we figured this is a good way to do it,” Fischette said, adding that he and Foley spent a day and a half blasting the event across social media after Foley proposed the idea Sept. 5. By 5 p.m. on the day of the event, an hour before Foley was set to arrive, a long line of Superfans had already assembled outside. “People just love him,” the owner said. “I know a lot of people who’ve been here before to see him, and they want to see him again. He’s really into the charity stuff, so it’s great.” Set up behind a table inside the store, Foley put a smile on the face of hundreds of adults, teens and kids eager to meet their hero as he signed shirts and his own Pop! Vinyl doll for $20 to $30. The Castoro family, from Smithtown — parents Jason and Nicole, and their 9-year-old kids Marilena and Brandon — were at the front of the line, each of them donning a wrestling shirt. As excited as they were for Foley, they came to support the cause, too. “I think it’s wonderful he’s using his celebrity status for a good cause,” said Jason Castoro,

a lifelong fan. “Sometimes when we go to meet famous wrestlers, you have to wait on a long line, and that’s just to meet them and take a picture. This really adds something special to it. We realized we had to come to this.” Nicole Castoro pointed to her daughter, Marilena, who she said came up with a similar idea on her own. “The other day, she said, ‘Why can’t all the wrestlers just give the people in Texas the money they make?’ and here he is, giving them all the proceeds,” she said. “That’s really cool.” Another lifelong WWE and Foley fan was Chance Clanton, an Austin, Texas resident staying in New York for the week. He said he has friends in Houston and is grateful for the overwhelming support from everybody,

including his childhood idol. “It’s really cool that he’s taking time out of his really busy schedule to show support for something like this,” Clanton said. “But it also really was no surprise to me when I heard he was doing it, he’s so charitable.” Throughout the event, Foley shared stories from his career, goofed off and laughed with fans, all the while thanking each and every one of them for being there. “I’m really flattered by the length of that line — I didn’t think there would be this many people,” Foley said. “This shows the strength and the heart of the Smithtown community and the surrounding areas. We’re called Strong Island for a reason. We pull together. And that’s really nice to know.”

County

Legislature votes to approve heroin, opiate panel By Desirée Keegan Desirée@tbrnewspapers.com Another push for a Suffolk County drug advisory panel has been made, and approved. At the general Legislature meeting Sept. 6, the members passed Introductory Resolution 1664 to create a panel that will provide ongoing guidance and input to the county in combating the opioid issue. The panel will take an interdisciplinary approach by focusing on preventative education, enhancement of law enforcement efforts, and aiding in treatment and rehabilitation. “A coordinated, continuous and interdisciplinary approach is needed to fully address the epidemic and implement susPage a22 tainable change,” Legislator Sarah Anker (D-Mount SInai) said. The ever-evolving nature of the opiate problems within the county will be addressed by a panel that will include members of the county Legislature — Anker, Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory (D-Amityville), Chair of the Public Safety Committee Kate Browning (D-Shirley), Chair of the Education and Human Services Committee Monica Martinez (D-Brentwood) and Chair of the Health Committee William “Doc” Spencer (DCenterport). The panel will also include representatives from the police department, sheriff’s department and department of health, as well as local rehabilitation providers, advocacy groups, hospitals and the county superintendents’ association. “The opioid epidemic has Suffolk communities in its grip, and it is time to create a long-term, countywide response to the crisis,” Gregory said. “This panel brings together more than a dozen of the most qualified and connected individuals and organizations in a position to make a difference.” Police Commissioner Tim Sini (D), who is on the panel, said it is a positive piece of legislation. “We are seeing this overdose epidemic develop from pills to heroin to the leading cause in Suffolk County, now Fentanyl,” Sini said. “Suffolk has not been spared. There have been recommendations made for previous panels at the state and county level — some have been adopted, and this allows us a forum to make additional recommendations and visit previous ones to be implemented and fine-tuned.” He has some of his own ideas he will bring to the table. “We need to invest in prevention and ways to keep people sober,” he said. “We opened the first recovery center — THRIVE — but we need more, and maybe even recovery high schools, to provide an environment that fosters support, especially when there’s the errors insurance companies [make] treating addiction.” He said he likes that there is a wide array of those in support of, and providing input on the panel. “You need all the stakeholders at the table,” he said. “This isn’t just a public safety issue, it’s first and foremost a public health issue.” An intervention program has already been put in place by the police department recently, to help put people in touch with the Long Island Council on Alcoholism & Drug Dependence. “When a police officer or detective comes into contact with intelligence for someone who needs substance abuse treatment, we will directly contact LICADD to get that person treatment,” he said. “We’re not just arresting drug dealers, but also connecting people to much-needed treatment.” It is anticipated that the advisory panel will meet for the first time at the beginning of October. Following the first meeting, the group will meet quarterly and will provide regular reports to the appropriate county committees, and all meetings will be open to the public. To aid in the efforts, the panel will conduct a minimum of two formal public hearings annually to acquire necessary information and data to assist it in developing further recommendations.

PersPectives Running in the Tunnel to Towers race was unforgettable By Rich AcRitelli

146603

Sixteen years ago, on a beautiful day, as Americans were putting their children on buses and going about their daily responsibilities, the United States was attacked. Through the use of civilian aircraft, the terrorists that commandeered the planes flew them directly into the World Trade Center in New York City and at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. On United Airlines Flight 93, passengers fought back over the skies of Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and undoubtedly saved lives. While the nation was stunned by the assaults against democracy, at once the U.S. was unified to help citizens struggling, both physically and emotionally, to survive in the aftermath. Since the 2001 attacks on the American way of life, traditions and tributes can be seen in countless walks of life to embody the familiar tenet: never forget. The New York Yankees have always utilized the seventh-inning stretch to play “America the Beautiful,” to honor veterans and rescue workers. In the fall, professional football teams expand a gigantic flag with military veterans and Wounded Warriors, and citizens across the U.S. observe ceremonies at memorials erected with steel from Ground Zero. One of the most powerful displays of remembrance is the Tunnel to Towers 5K Run and Walk from Red Hook, Brooklyn toward the Freedom Tower in Lower Manhattan. Last year, Rocky Point High School guidance counselor Michael Conlon, who is also a former police officer, suggested to me and to several other teachers that we should run in the race. “There are no words to describe the intense feeling of patriotism and honor as you exit the tunnel toward the banners of those who perished,” Conlon told us before the event. “You literally feel a charge of energy run through your body. It’s an experience everyone should endure.” The vibe during the run is unique, unlike any other competitive race. From the very start as runners enter the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel, they see themselves in massive screens placed near the entrance and cheers for the runners from the bystanders can be heard. For me, it was a chance to run with veteran Rocky Point English teacher Andrew Levine. As we ran, we noticed the thousands of people with different athletic abilities running to show their national pride. In the tunnel, music was playing and the words from “Proud to be an American” could be heard for miles. Next to us were fully dressed rescue workers in their FDNY gear who were running in memory of their lost comrade, Stephen Siller, who ran through the tunnel with 60 pounds of gear 16 years ago. The firefighter was supposed to play golf on that day, but when he learned about the attacks on the city, he parked his car near the entrance of the tunnel and, while it was closed to traffic, he ran toward the World Trade Center Complex. During our run, uphill and out of the tunnel, we were treated to an impressive sight. West Point cadets and FDNY family members held flags and pictures, and handed out water. Behind them we could see the Freedom Tower, a new beacon of strength within the skyline of a proud city. As that was the finish line of the race, thousands of people were lined up on the street and along the waterfront of the Lower West Side to show their support for us, as we finished not too far from the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. Longtime social studies teacher Brooke Bonomi from Rocky Point was completely taken aback by the immense amount of pride demonstrated during the run. During his more than 30 years as a teacher, Bonomi always stressed the importance of national and local service inside and outside of his classroom. He ran next to Conlon wearing his Corona Tigers FDNY shirt to recognize the efforts of his own family members who served within the Queens fire house. Bonomi, who has organized Wounded Warrior basketball games and collected thousands of pounds of food and other items for soldiers over seas, has a father, brother and brother-in-law who all served in the FDNY. For the

local educator, 9/11 is a day of reflection on the sacrifices his own family has made to help others in New York City. While tragic loss was suffered by the whole nation 16 years ago, the character of our people is the true lasting legacy, and events like Tunnel to Towers are proof. Rich Acritelli is a social studies teacher at Rocky Point High School and an adjunct professor of American history at Suffolk County Community College.

Centereach can’t come up with goals in OT By Desirée Keegan Desiree@tbrnewspapers.com A scoring drought dating back to the last game of last season — 400 minutes of game time — hung over Smithtown East’s girls soccer team, so when sophomore striker Stella Mazzitelli got the ball on a breakaway with the score tied 0-0 in overtime, she admitted she was worried.

Smithtown E 2 Centereach 0

“I was nervous,” she said. “But we were hyped up. We really wanted this win and it felt really good to finally score our first goal of the season.” Following Mazzitelli’s goal with 8:09 left in the first 10-minute overtime session, sophomore forward Ava Bongiorno headed in a corner kick at the 1:58 mark for a 2-0 Bulls win over Centereach at home Sept. 11. “We haven’t really connected as a team, but today I feel like we all worked together — it felt like we were whole,” senior center defender and striker Danielle Bartsch said. “And I feel it’s only uphill from here.” The beginning of the game produced a familiar result for Smithtown East. Centereach dominated the time of possession in the opening half, but was unable to put away its chances. In the second half, Centereach freshman Nicole Fabris continued to fire away, but her shots went wide. Her last shot, with 25 seconds left in regulation, rebounded off the crossbar and out of play. “Centereach is always a good team,” Smithtown East head coach Bill Hamilton said. “They play hard. I call them a hardluck team, because they’re better than their record usually shows. This was an important game for us to get back on track, so I’m excited.” The game served as a boost for the Bulls’ confidence, which had wavered due to losses to top League III teams Newfield (1-0) and crosstown rival Smithtown West (3-0). “I needed this to be our breakout day so they know they can play,” Hamilton said. “Losing to them wasn’t catastrophic, but we need to do a better job the next time we play them. The girls were questioning them-

selves, wondering why they can’t score, but they can, they just need to keep trying.” The Bulls came out pressuring in the second half. With the game still scoreless, they knew there was still a chance. “We passed a lot, which we were struggling to do well in the first half, and we communicated,” Mazzitelli said. “We put a lot of hard work into it and deserved to win.” Between the 27- and 16-minute marks, Smithtown East made six breaks through the box in an effort to score. Hamilton attributed the chances to a change in formation following the Bulls loss to Smithtown West Sept. 8. “We were running a totally different field position,” he said. “They’re learning it, and I feel it gives us more offensive opportunities. We started to connect the passes we were just missing.” His two sophomores were just what the team needed to ignite the spark, and Hamilton said he believes more goals are on the way Sept. 13 at Copiague. While Bongiorno was on the team as a freshman, Mazzitelli was a transfer student last year, and found herself on the junior varsity team. “Before today we were playing with one person up top and five people at midfield, and we just never got the numbers forward that we needed to make a better offensive push, but when we practice they can kick a house down,” Hamilton said. “They’re up there for a reason, and we did a nice job on the pass that went to Stella to spring her for her first goal. She did a nice job of not kicking it to the goalie — finding a corner to put it in. She’s tough. It’s a case of them having to do it enough times to realize they can do this.”

Bartsch said the energy remained high and the team’s mindset remained positive heading into overtime, something she enjoyed seeing from her fellow Bulls. “From the beginning of the game we all had good spirits, we had good vibes going, we were all positively cheering everyone on, working together and we got good results from it,” she said. “We have to work on sequences up the field and finishing, but we got two goals today, and I see more coming in the future.”

California Bungalow â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A forerunner of the Craftsman style, California Bungalows offer rustic exteriors, sheltered-feeling interiors, and spacious front porches. Cape Cod â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A true classic, Cape Cod homes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; square or rectangular one-story structures with gabled roofs and unornamented fronts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were among Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first houses. Colonial â&#x20AC;&#x201C; An offshoot of the Cape Cod style, Colonial homes feature a rectangular, symmetric design, second-floor bedrooms, clapboard siding, and gabled roofs. Contemporary â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Unmistakably modern in feel, Contemporary style homes are identifiable by their odd-sized windows, lack of ornamentation, and unusual mix of wall materials. Craftsman â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Full or partial-width porches framed by tapered columns, overhanging eaves, and exposed roof rafters differentiate a Craftsman home from the similar California Bungalow. Creole â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A front wall that recedes to form a first-story porch and a second-story balcony highlights the Creole Cottage design. Dutch Colonial â&#x20AC;&#x201C; German, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deutschâ&#x20AC;?, settlers in Pennsylvania originated the Dutch Colonial style, dominated by a barn-like broad gambrel roof with flaring eaves.

Federal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This style arose amid a renewed interest in Greek Roman culture, as its classical ornamentation around cornices, doors, and windows demonstrates. French Provincial â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Balance and symmetry define the French Provincial style, which includes a steep hip roof; balcony and porch balustrades; and rectangular doors set in arched openings. Georgian â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Refined and symmetrical with paired chimneys and a decorative crown, Georgian houses were named after English royalty. Gothic Revival â&#x20AC;&#x201C; English romanticism influenced this style marked by â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gothicâ&#x20AC;? windows with pointed arches; exposed framing timbers; and steep, vaulted roofs. Greek Revival â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Large porches, entryway columns, and a front door surrounded by narrow rectangular windows characterize Greek Revival homes. International â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The International style exposes functional building elements, including elevator shafts, ground-to-ceiling plate glass windows, and smooth facades. Italianate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Symmetrical bay windows in front; small chimneys set in irregular locations; tall, narrow, windows; and in some cases towers, typify Italianate houses. Monterey â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Monterey style updates the New England Colonial style with an adobe brick exterior and a second floor with a balcony. National â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Rooted in Native American and pre-railroad dwellings, the National style consists of a rectangular shape with sidegabled roofs or square layouts with pyramidal roofs.

Neoclassical â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Recognize Neoclassical homes, which exist in incarnations from one-story cottages to multilevel manses, by their Ionic or Corinthian-columned porches. Prairie â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Originated by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Prairie style house comes in two styles--boxy and symmetrical or low-slung and asymmetrical. Pueblo â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Flat roofs, parapet walls with round edges, straight-edge window frames, earth-colored stucco or adobe-brick walls, and projecting roof beams typify Pueblos. Queen Anne â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Emerging in the late Victorian era, the style employs inventive, multistory floor plans that often include projecting wings, several porches and balconies, and multiple chimneys with decorative chimney pots. Ranch â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Similar to the Spanish Colonial, Prairie, and Craftsman styles, Ranch homes are set apart by pitched-roof construction, built-in garages, wood or brick exterior walls, siding, and picture windows. Regency â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Although they borrow from the Georgianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classic lines, Regency homes eschew ornamentation. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re symmetrical, two or three stories, and usually built in brick. Typically, they feature an octagonal window over the front door, one chimney at the side of the house, double-hung windows, and a hip roof. Saltbox â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This New England Colonial style gained the Saltbox nickname because its sharply sloping gable roof resembled boxes used for storing salt. Second Empire â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A Victorian style, Second Empire homes feature mansard roofs with dormer windows, molded cornices, and dec-

orative brackets under the eaves. Shed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A subset of the Modern style, Shed houses are asymmetric with multiple roofs sloping in different directions, which creates several geometric shapes. Shingle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; An American style that echoes the Queen Anne, Shingle style is distinguished by unadorned doors, windows, porches, and cornices; continuous wood shingles; a steeply pitched roof line; and large porches. Shotgun â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tradition says that a shotgun blast can trace a straight path from the front to back door of this long, narrow home. The style is characterized by a single story with a gabled roof. Spanish Eclectic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Taking its cues from early Spanish missions, Spanish Eclectic then adds a dash of details from Moorish, Byzantine, Gothic, and Renaissance architectural styles. Split Level â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A Modern style, Split Level design sequesters certain living activities, such as sleeping or socializing. Stick â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Decorative horizontal, vertical, or diagonal boards characterize Stick houses, which are members of the Victorian family. Tudor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Half-timbering on bay windows and upper floors, and facades that are dominated by one or more steeply pitched cross gables typify Tudor homes. Victorian â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Built during the rise of the machine age, Victorian architecture often incorporated decorative details such as brackets, spindles and patterned shingles.

OpiniOn Editorial

Letters to the editor

Response to Congressman Zeldin’s letter

Photo by Kevin Redding

Mothers who lost children to overdoses embrace one another during Hope Walk for Addiction at Cedar Beach in Mount Sinai.

Actions speak louder than panels Problem solving on Long Island seems to have become synonymous with panel making. As the opioid addiction and overdose crisis in Suffolk County continues to compound, it seems the only solution local government can think of is to create a task force. Last week, the county Legislature approved an opiate and heroin advisory panel, made up of legislators, organization heads, members of law enforcement, doctors and educational leaders, who will put their heads together to come up with solutions. While this may sound like a worthwhile idea, we’ve seen it done before, and seen it done in an attempt to fix numerous issues, with varying levels of success. In 2010, in fact, the Legislature passed legislation for a similar, impermanent panel with 13 members, many of whom are on this new one. It disbanded five years ago, and made 48 recommendations, two of which came to fruition — “The Ugly Truth” videos shown in public schools and the creation of countywide public Narcan training sessions. While Suffolk has seen some of the benefits from these initiatives, these committees still fail to get to the root of the problem: improving prevention and rehabilitation. We know some members, new ones like Police Commissioner Tim Sini, might present some helpful proposals and real solutions. We hope the other members take notes and think about seriously making a push to come together to instill change. Too many times advisory panels and task forces lead to dead ends. And with so many groups out there fighting the same subject, it becomes that much more difficult to focus the attention toward real problem solving. Will this panel attack the issue of overprescribing and illegally prescribing pain medication, which more times than not, is what leads kids down the path of heroin addiction? Marijuana was long considered a “gateway drug” to other more dangerous substances, yet Oxycodone and Vicodin don’t seem to be regarded the same way, and until that is the case no amount of panels or task forces is going to stem this tide. This can also been seen as a symbolic election-year move. With all of the legislators on the panel up for re-election, you can see where we’re going with this. It also consists solely of Democrats. Despite the panel being based on merit and knowledge, it is not a bipartisan effort and it can be understood why it has put a bad taste in the mouths of others. While we of course, as much as anyone, especially after devoting a whole special issue to the crisis, would like to see an end to the death, the pain and the suffering of our fellow Long Islanders, we remain skeptical an advisory panel is the way to get the job done.

I read U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin’s letter in the Aug. 17 issue of The Port Times Record, “This is a time to be an American,” hoping that he would do what President Trump did not, which is unequivocally denounce the violence of white supremacists, without creating a false equivalency on the left. Unfortunately, Zeldin worked off of the president’s talking points with his blame of the “violence on multiple groups and multiple sides.” The fact is that only one group showed up with Nazi flags and torches, chanting “Blood and soil.” Only one group chanted “Jews will not replace us,” and only one side ran a car over other human beings, killing a woman and injuring dozens of others. There were not multiple sides to the hate and bigotry we witnessed in Charlottesville.

U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) during a recent visit to the TBR News Media offices. Zeldin said that this is not to be a time to be a “Republican or Democrat,” and to be “united” as Americans, but unfortunately he does not live up to his words.

Mere days after the violence in Charlottesville, he posted the following on his Facebook account: “Do you agree that since the election of President Trump too many of his political opponents have gone too far in their efforts to resist, oppose and obstruct him on everything and anything?” I believe that a statement as divisive as this contradicts everything that he pleaded for in this letter. It is irresponsible leadership and sows seeds of hate in a time when emotions are already running high. While I did not vote for Zeldin, I do have the expectation that he will represent the interests of all of his constituents in the 1st Congressional District. It is unfortunate that unity is a term that he seems incapable of in both word and deed.

Shoshana Hershkowitz South Setauket

Ignoring left wing violence and ‘haters’ It wouldn’t have taken much research to confirm Congressman Lee Zeldin’s Charlottesville statement, “violence came from multiple groups and multiple sides.” For those wary of right wing blogs, there was the New York Times’ Sheryl Stolberg reporting, “I saw club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park.” Police Chief Al Thomas officially stated, “The crowd size became increasingly violent with mutually engaged combatants.” With rival mobs coming well equipped for a fight, the resulting, tragic pandemonium should have surprised no one. One result of this deadly, heartbreaking incident, might be questions raised regarding one of the lesser known antagonists antifa. That would make sense, because while the vile history of Nazis, White Supremacists and KKK are known, except perhaps for the latter’s long sordid alliance with the Democrat Party, their current foe, antifa, is a mystery to most. Here we can use a letter writer’s quaint referencing of the “antifa decal” in [The Village Times Herald], Aug. 24 letter to the editor, “Zeldin’s letter reinforces Trump’s lie,” to shed some light

on the group’s probable origins. A visual comparison of a 1932 flag representing the militant wing of the German Communist Party, to banners currently being waved by antifa, proves instructive. They are remarkably, and likely deliberately similar. Which makes it reasonable to ask why another contributor in their letter “To Zeldin: Not enough to pay lip service,” [The Village Times Herald, Aug. 24] glorified an outfit behaving like a Communist paramilitary group, as the defender of “American values.” Given this, it’s interesting to contrast Mr. Zeldin’s characterization of the KKK and Nazism as harboring “hatred, bigotry, racism, intolerance and … a[n] inhumane past filled with horrible evil” to, when they’re faced with violence spawned from radical left wing precincts, the silence of his critics. Real-time video of masked extremist, antifa elements destroying property, committing assaults and battling police in Portland, Oregon, Washington, D.C., and Boston, doesn’t merit condemnation, so long as the felons are leftists. If those awful images weren’t proof enough, perhaps we need to be reminded that this past June,

Bernie Sanders supporter, James Hodgkinson, attempted to assassinate GOP members of Congress. This special “hater” of Republicans nearly succeeded in murdering House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, while wounding four others. Apparently hard-left inspired mayhem reached a tipping point on Aug. 27 at Berkeley. The evidence was so damning, even those who’ve shown virtually no conservative leanings felt compelled to denounce the brutality. The Washington Post headlined, “Blackclad antifa members attack peaceful, right- wing demonstrators in Berkeley.” Newsday stated, “[W] earing masks, and carrying shields and pepper spray … they attacked a small group of right-wing supporters of President Donald Trump.” Said Rep. Nancy Pelosi, “The violent actions of people calling themselves antifa in Berkeley … deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted.” Those articles, along with House Minority Leader Pelosi’s powerful statement, acknowledge the growing threats posed by radicalized left-wing groups. Good for the truth tellers, but even better for the nation.

OpiniOn School is open, drive carefully

I

didn’t see a horrifying and preventable accident this morning. I didn’t see a little girl, let’s call her Erica, on her way to her first week of school. Erica, who, in our story, is 10 years old, wants to be a veterinarian, and has pictures of animals all over her room. She begged her parents so long for a kitten that they relented. They saw how well she took care of the kitten, putting drops in her eyes when she By Daniel Dunaief needed them, making sure she got the correct shots and even holding her kitten in the office when they had to draw blood to test for feline leukemia, which, fortunately, her kitten didn’t have.

D. None of the above

Two years after she got her kitten, Erica continued to ask for additional animals, adding a fish, a rabbit and a hamster to her collection. Each morning, Erica wakes up and checks on all the animals in her little zoo, well, that’s what her father calls it, to see how they’re doing. Her mother is convinced that the animals respond to her voice, moving closer to the edge of the cage or to the door when they hear her coming. When mother leaves to pick up Erica from school, the animals become restless. I didn’t see Erica walking with her best friend Jenna. Like Erica, Jenna has a dream. She wants to pitch for the United States in softball in the Olympics. Jenna is much taller than her best friend and has an incredible arm. Jenna hopes the Olympics decides to have softball when she’s old enough and strong enough to play. Jenna thinks bringing a gold medal to her father, who is in the

Marines and has traveled the world protecting other people, would be the greatest accomplishment she could ever achieve. I didn’t see a man, whom I’ll call Bob and who lives only four blocks from Erica and Jenna, put on his carefully pressed light-blue shirt with the matching tie that morning. I didn’t witness him kissing his wife Alicia, the way he does every morning before he rushes off to his important job. I didn’t see him climb into his sleek SUV and back quickly out of his driveway on the dead-end block he and Alicia chose more than a dozen years earlier. I didn’t see Bob get the first indication from his iPhone 7 that he had several messages. I didn’t witness Bob rolling his eyes at the first few messages. I didn’t see him drive quickly toward the crosswalk where Erica and Jenna were walking. The girls had slowed down in the crosswalk because Jenna pointed out a deer

she could see across the street in a backyard. Jenna knew Erica kept an animal diary and she was always on the lookout for anything her friend could include in her cherished book. I didn’t see Bob — his attention diverted by a phone he had to extend to see clearly — roll too quickly into the crosswalk, sending both girls flying. I didn’t see the ambulances racing to the scene, the parents with heavy hearts getting the unimaginable phone calls, and the doctors doing everything they could to fix Jenna’s battered right arm — her pitching arm. I didn’t see it because it didn’t happen. What I did see, however, was a man in an SUV, driving way too quickly through a crosswalk, staring at his phone instead of looking out for Erica, Jenna and everyone else’s children on his way to work. It’s an old message that we should repeat every year: “School is open, drive carefully.”

Calming the mind in a Japanese teahouse

W

hen we went to a Japanese tea ceremony, known as chado, it was an immersion in Japanese culture. We had an enjoyable and instructive time at the Charles B. Wang Center at Stony Brook University even if it was for only 30 minutes this past Sunday afternoon. By reservation, the center offers an authentic experience in a charming bamteahouse By Leah S. Dunaief boo on the first floor, hosted by a kimono-clad lady who holds such sessions for a maximum of four people at a time. We arrived early, signed in and waited until the session before ours

ended. The hostess then welcomed us with a bow, which we returned, and she explained that the design of two doors, a low one and a higher one, in the teahouse was deliberate. The guests, by bending to enter through the lower or “crawling in” door, were assured that all were of equal importance. None was to be considered more worthy. She then pointed out that because the sliding door was open slightly, it meant that the guests should enter. Had it been closed, we were to wait. We left our shoes outside the little house and sat on one of the four low stools placed inside for us on the tatami mats. The hostess then entered through the higher door and began preparations. Her movements were deliberate and scripted into a traditional procedure, called temae. She was following a centuries-old ritual of making and serving the powdered green tea called matcha.

in Japan and was practiced by the monks, it was influenced by Zen Buddhism and embraced by the samurai or warrior class. The quiet ambience, the spare furnishings inside the teahouse, the unhurried and predictable movements of the hostess, the decorative scrolls emphasizing virtues like harmony, respect, purity and tranquility, helped calm the mind and push away fear before battle. Even the sound of water slowly boiling for the tea was soothing. The little bamboo teahouse was constructed in the midst of the modern Wang Center, yet we could leave behind our busy thoughts and worldly concerns with our shoes and purses as we entered this special space. Speaking quietly to us, the hostess explained the equipment to make the tea: bowls, the green tea powder that was not artificially colored but naturally bright green, the delicate whisk carved from bamboo to mix the powder with the hot water in the bowls, the tea caddy, the scoops —
