By Alex PetroSki alex@tbrnewsmedia.com Winter Storm Grayson arrived early Jan. 4 and pounded Port Jefferson and the surrounding areas to the tune of more than 16 inches of snow. The storm was officially categorized as a blizzard by the New York office of the National Weather Service, with sustained winds or frequent gusts greater than 35 mph, “considerable” falling and blowing snow, visibility of less than a quarter of a mile and more than three hours of duration. Port Jefferson Village Mayor Margot Garant, Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine (R), Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D) and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) declared states of emergency for each of their respective jurisdictions. “This storm was actually worse than predicted for us,” Bellone said during a briefing Jan. 5. “We saw up to 16 inches of snow in certain parts of the county. This was, as we discussed, a very difficult and challenging storm because of all the conditions: high rate of snowfall, very rapid rate and high winds. It made it very difficult. I want to thank all of those who heeded our calls to stay off the roads yesterday. There were far too many people on the roads. The result was hundreds of motorists ended up stranded.” Based on unofficial observations taken Jan. 4 and 5, the highest snowfall total reported by the New York NWS office was in Terryville, where 16.4 inches of snow fell during the storm. Suffolk County appeared to take the brunt of Grayson’s wrath according to the NWS data, not only in actual snowfall, but also as the home to the highest wind gusts in the state during the storm, with gusts exceeding 60 mph. Despite the substantial snowfall totals, Main Street in Port Jeff Village was up and running and open for business Friday morning, according to Garant, who said in

an email the village’s Department of Public Works did an “A++” job. “We have a good system and a great team in place,” she said, adding she was thrilled with how quickly village streets were passable. “The community really makes this possible for us by staying home and avoiding parking on the snow emergency streets.” Steve Gallagher, the village’s DPW superintendent, said 22 village DPW employees worked using nine trucks equipped with plows and nine trucks with both plows and sanders to clear the streets. He estimated the village used between 150 and 200 tons of salt-and-sand mix to mitigate the impact of road and sidewalk icing. He reiterated Garant’s point that cooperation from the public is critical in returning the village back to business as usual following a storm. “Village roads were passable at all times thanks to the dedication and commitment of the men in the DPW,” he said. “People staying off the roads and not parking in the streets would help expedite the clearing of the roads and allow a better job.” PSEG Long Island reported 97 percent of the 21,700 of its customers who lost power as a result of the storm had their service restored by 9 p.m. Jan. 5. “Our goal, always, is to restore power as quickly and safely as possible,” a spokesperson for the utility said in a press release. “We ask our customers for a fair amount of patience and to know we will be there just as soon as it is safe.” The storm came in the midst of a recordsetting stretch of below-freezing temperatures, according to the NWS. A streak of 13 straight days with a maximum temperature below 32 degrees Fahrenheit measured at Long Island MacArthur Airport in Islip was snapped Jan. 9. The 13-day duration was the second longest period of below-freezing temperatures reported at the airport since 1963.

Rocketship Park engineering firm receives award for design concept By Alex Petroski alex@tbrnewsmedia.com Residents of Port Jefferson Village have known for decades Rocketship Park is a special place, but now the engineering firm that handled its renovation has the hardware to prove it. L.K. McLean Associates announced Jan. 3 it received the Diamond Award in the special projects category from the American Council of Engineering Companies of New York for its renovation of Clinton H. Lee Memorial Park in Port Jeff Village, or Rocketship Park as it’s commonly known. LKMA is a firm with licensed engineers, land surveyors and architects that has been serving the New York Metropolitan area since 1950, according to its website. The ACEC of New York has hosted annually for more than 50 years its Engineering Excellence Gala — or the Academy Awards of the consulting engineering industry, as the organization’s website indicates. The event is the culmination of a selection process in which more than 60 firms submit projects to be judged on a rigorous set of criteria, including complexity, innovation and value to society. A panel of industry experts, including military and government officials, leadership from ACEC, educators from college and university engineering departments and others, judges the projects. Winners are selected based on the highest average scores in the various categories. The Diamond Award is the highest level handed out by ACEC. “As a parent, it was a rewarding experience to work with the village to renovate the park I grew up playing in,” said Chris Dwyer, an associate at LKMA and the project manager for the Rocketship Park renovations. “The park now gives kids of all

kids play on the equipment at rocketship Park in Port Jefferson Village during its grand reopening event in June, following a renovation headed up by l.k. Mclean Associates, which received an award for engineering excellence last week. ages and abilities the opportunity to play and enjoy such an iconic landmark. We are thrilled at such an honor by ACEC.” The 4,000-square-foot playground was originally built in the 1970s. The idea to overhaul the footprint can be traced as far back as 2013, after vandals destroyed some of the previous equipment. In addition to extra security features, this prompted the village to look into repairs, according to a previous interview with former village trustee Adrienne Kessel. She is chair of the Treasure Your Parks campaign, a group which spearheaded the upgrade project. “It began with a conversation about adding better lighting, but that wasn’t the answer,” she said. “When we went to fix the damaged pieces, we weren’t able to find them. The equipment was obsolete.”

Village Mayor Margot Garant said she was glad to hear the park would be recognized for its design. “The recognition for Rocketship is really meaningful because not only is the park beautiful, it was done to allow inclusion for all children to have access,” she said. “So we made it bigger and more beautiful than even we could have imagined it. I am so pleased that everyday residents and visitors can continue to revisit and build their strong family memories at this beautiful family park.” LKMA served as the sole engineering consultant and site surveyor, and proposed schematic site plans that were eventually developed and used. “Equipment selection emphasized a meaningful play design, allowing children the opportunity to choose how they

play, while seeing connections with play and choice,” LKMA’s announcement of the award said. “A ‘choose your own adventure’ engages children in the five elements essential to meaningful play: physical, cognitive, social, sensory and communicative. The site plan was arranged to maximize parental supervision with clean lines of sight from dispersed seating areas.” The park has been under video surveillance since it reopened in June and Garant asked that all those who visit the park help ensure it remains clean, free of graffiti, vandalism and litter. The total cost of the project was almost $900,000, with $500,000 coming from taxpayer dollars, $265,000 from a New York State parks grant and about $120,000 from donations, according to Barbara Sakovich, assistant to the mayor.

Four Port Jeff Village code officers honored for saving life By Alex Petroski alex@tbrnewsmedia.com When Port Jefferson Village code officers James Murdocco, Michael Hanley, Brent Broere and John Vinicombe arrived for their shifts Dec. 22, little did they know they would each play a vital role in saving a life. The four constables were honored by the Port Jefferson Village mayor and board of trustees during a public meeting Jan. 3 for the roles they played in resuscitating with Narcan an unresponsive victim. Narcan is used to block the effects of opioid drugs and to reverse overdoses. “On Dec. 22, 2017, officer James Murdocco responded to a call at the Fairfield Apartment complex and upon arrival, officers found an unconscious man in a vehicle,” the proclamation honoring Murdocco read in part. Hanley, Broere and Vinicombe were also each given matching proclamations. “All four officers, while working together, cleared the scene and administered two doses of Narcan to the patient which resulted in bringing him back to life. The actions of these officers

are well deserving of an official recognition and are positive role models in the community as these officers are not merely giving out tickets, but are there to save lives also. Therefore as the Mayor of Port Jefferson Village, I do hereby recognize James Murdocco, on this 3rd day of January, 2018 for your act of heroism and many years of public service. You are truly a valuable asset to our community and we appreciate and applaud you.” According to code Chief Wally Tomaszewski, when the officers arrived on the scene the victim’s skin was a shade of purple, and as far as he was concerned he thought the man was dead. He said the actions of the officers were heroic and saved a life. Mayor Margot Garant was visibly moved emotionally while presenting the officers with the proclamations. She thanked them for their service and dedication to the community. Tomaszewski indicated this was not the first time members of his constabulary were called into action to save a life using Narcan, and that Port Jeff code officers are encouraged to undergo Narcan training on their own time should it be needed in the line of duty.

Port Jeff Village officials honor code officers, Michael Hanley, third from left, Brent Broere, James Murdocco and John Vinicombe, far right, for saving a life using Narcan. Murdocco and Vinicombe were honored by the board in 2016 after they responded to an opioid overdose at the Islandwide Taxi stand near the Port Jefferson Long Island Rail Road station. Garant said when honoring them during a February 2016 meeting that the officers were told the young victim was dead, and they found no pulse or respiration. Murdocco and Vinicombe each administered the anti-overdose medication Narcan and

Murdocco performed CPR. Tomaszewski also indicated the importance in code officers receiving Narcan training because in situations involving overdoses time is of the essence, and they are able to be on the scene of an incident faster in most cases than Suffolk County police. Tomazewski encouraged all members of the public to undergo Narcan training to be ready in the case of an emergency.

Mount Sinai police captain wins big on ‘Jeopardy!’ By Kevin Redding kevin@tbrnewsmedia.com Since he was 10 years old, Kevin Foley dreamed of going on his favorite television show, standing behind a podium and giving answers in the form of a question. Last month, the 58-year-old Suffolk County police captain from Mount Sinai finally got his wish as a contestant on “Jeopardy!” where he won a total of $18,000. “It was the culmination of a lifelong effort,” Foley said of his appearances on two “Jeopardy!” episodes, which aired Dec. 27 and 28. He won his first appearance, raking in $16,000, and fell short of victory in the second, taking home a $2,000 consolation prize for second place. Although he “kicks himself” for the minute error that cost him a win in the second game, failing to risk enough in the final Jeopardy round, Foley said it was an experience he’ll always cherish. “It was definitely something to check off my bucket list,” he said. “It took me 30-something years to get on there, but I never stopped trying. It’s very satisfying.” In the late 1960s, Foley, a student in the Plainedge school district at the time, came home for lunch every day and watched “Jeopardy!” with his mother, transfixed by the high-stakes quiz competition then hosted by Art Fleming. The two would bounce the show’s clues off one another, trying to decode them before the contestants did — a routine that continued into the next decade. He said early days with his mother, Dolores Foley, fed right into his already voracious appetite for trivia and knowledge. “I was the kid that the librarian had to keep telling, ‘No, you can’t take that book out, it’s too advanced for you,’” he said, laughing. “I’ve always read a heck of a lot and retained what I read. My mom was the same way.” In between the show’s initial cancellation in 1975 and reemergence in 1984 with its new host Alex Trebek, Foley applied to the Suffolk County Police Department, trained in the academy and became an officer within the 3rd Precinct, officially starting in 1983 when he was 23. Throughout his career, Foley has served in multiple precincts and was involved in the rescue of a 2-year-old girl who had fallen to the bottom of an in-ground pool. For the past year, Foley has been a precinct delegate for a group called Brotherhood for the Fallen, which sends members of the police department across the country to funerals for law enforcement officers who have been killed. It also provides funds to family members to help with immediate financial needs. But his desire to be on “Jeopardy!” never went away. After the show returned to airwaves in 1984, he and his mother would drive to Resorts International in Atlantic City where contestant tryouts were held throughout the year. “But we never made it past the initial stages,” Foley said of passing the preliminary 50-question written test. Since the ’80s, he said he swam in the contestant pool for “Jeopardy!” roughly 10 different times — always close but

In December 2000, he was one of eight people in the preliminary rounds on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” but never hit the hot seat. This past May, Foley, like clockwork, took the show’s annual timed, 50-question qualifying exam online, covering the wide range of categories found on the show, with 35 being a passing score. In July, he was called in for an appointment in the show’s Manhattan offices for further tests; mock rounds of the game for evaluation of on-air stage presence and interviews with producers and members of the production staff. In August, he was asked if he was available for tapings in Los Angeles in September. Foley, who said he reads two or three books a week and “knows a little bit about a lot,” had amassed a collection of “Jeopardy!” books, filled with facts, and studied them every night leading to September. “He also watched the show every day, he bought a physical at-home version of the game and I constantly quizzed him,” said his wife Joan Foley, who was in the audience during the taping. “It was nervewracking to sit there among all these other people and everybody else on the show was so smart. I was so proud of him.” She said that her husband’s mother, who passed away three summers ago, would have been too. “His mom is definitely smiling down on him now,” she said.

On Foley’s first night, despite trailing behind in third place with $4,400 to the other contestants’ $5,000 and $7,600 after the first round, he quickly bounced back as champion by the end of the Double Jeopardy! Round, finishing with $16,000 to the others’ $8,799 and $0. He said he most surprised himself during the game by correctly answering with “Drake” to a question in the category of Hip Hop and R&B 2017. “Everyone was like, what is this 58-year-old doing answering this one?” he said laughing. He said it was difficult to process what Trebek said to him during the commercial break as he was too concentrated on the game. “You kind of get engrossed in it all,” Foley said, adding that the show’s host is not as intense and standoffish as he assumed. “He’s very polite and good-natured — Kevin Foley — much more personable than I expected him to be.” While in the lead in his second game against a new batch of contestants, Foley got caught in the show’s strict “to the letter” rules. The category was “Only The Lonely” with the clue reading: “This 12-letter word often followed ‘Miss’ in romantic advice column titles.” Foley answered, “What is Lonelyheart?” to which Trebek responded “yes,” which he retracted seconds later. “No, sorry,” Trebek said on the heels of the judges’ reevaluation. “We have to rule against you. It’s Miss Lonelyhearts, not Miss Lonelyheart.”

‘I was the kid that the librarian had to keep telling, “No, you can’t take that book out, it’s too advanced for you.’”

While that one-letter difference cost him $1,600 and a potential second win, his take-home money is making possible a trip in the spring to Yellowstone National Park, a longtime dream destination for he and his wife. Not to mention Foley’s “Jeopardy!” success has made him a celebrity among friends and co-workers, many of whom were unaware of his appearances until they were about to air. Nearly 100 people attended a viewing party for the episodes, held at Tommy’s Place in Port Jefferson. “It was so exciting,” said Foley’s longtime friend Roger Rutherford, general manager of Roger’s Frigate, of seeing his 10-year friend’s face up on the big screen. “The place was packed and the second ‘Jeopardy!’ announced who was on the show, the crowd went wild. And every time Kevin’s name was mentioned, the crowd roared with cheers and claps and booing the other competitors. Because of the environment, you would think there was a football game on.” Jack Catalina, Foley’s best friend and former partner on the force, said he wasn’t surprised by how well he did. “He’s always looking to show everybody how smart he is,” Catalina said, jokingly. “I was so happy for him, and I think he did very well. He’s always been very good at these types of trivia games.” So much so, Joan Foley said, that he serves as designated host during family game nights, as it would be too unfair to have him compete. Foley himself laughed at this, before quoting Herman Edwards, the former head coach of the New York Jets. “You play to win the game,” he said.

Police Blotter Incidents and arrests Jan. 2–8 Assault and mischief

Cuomo delivers State of the State address By SaBrina PetroSki Although chatter is starting to pick up that he might be a candidate for president on the Democratic ticket in 2020, for now Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is still in a New York state of mind. On Jan. 3 Cuomo gave his State of the State address, in which he explained his agenda for the coming year. He began by touting some quality of life issues in New York state that are improving. “Crime is down statewide, we have a cleaner environment, we have a fairer criminal justice system, we have more high school graduates who are attending colleges,” Cuomo said. “We have preserved more land than ever before, enacted a more progressive tax code, and launched the most ambitious building program in the country.” Cuomo split the problems he believes the state is facing and his speech into three sections: the challenges of old discrimination and sexism within society, safety threats and the new federal and economic challenges “we have never experienced before.” He referred to the challenges he plans to address in the coming year as “a three front war.” First, Cuomo pitched a reform on how the state deals with sexual assault and harassment claims in the workplace for employees paid by tax dollars. “Policies should be binding on all state

fund should only be invested in companies the comptroller determines have adequate female and minority representation in management and on the board of directors while showing effective corporate leadership. “Our lady justice is still not color blind and her scales are still not balanced,” he said. The governor spoke of a redevelopment plan for the major transportation hubs throughout the state, an initiative spearheaded in the hopes of improving safety and mobility. These places will be equipped with more and better trained police personnel and more state-of-the-art surveillance systems, according to Cuomo. A large transportation hub Cuomo said he is focusing on is Penn Station. He said he has created a plan to restructure and rebuild Penn Station to improve operations, aesthetics and security. He is also proposing a plan to rebuild the major train stations that connect the Long Island Rail Road to Penn Station. He also said he has plans to remove traditional toll booths, and replace them with electric toll structures as a way of reducing congestion along main highways and bridges, a movement that is already underway. Lastly, Cuomo said he will continue to invest in and improve public education. He plans to expand 3- and 4-year-old prekindergarten, also after-school and computer science programs.

to make sure the local education districts are distributing more money from received grants to poorer schools. “Trickle-down economics doesn’t work, and neither does trickle-down education funding,” Cuomo said. On Jan. 5, Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan (R-East Northport) provided a response to Cuomo’s State of the State address, expressing similar hopes for the coming year. He said the urgency of creating a more affordable New York, as well as protecting those who live here should be a priority of lawmakers for 2018. “Our self-imposed 2 percent spending cap has already saved our state $41 billion,” Flanagan said. “It’s time for the governor and Assembly Democrats to join with us in making that spending cap permanent. Doing so will help to ensure a balanced, fiscally responsible budget that protects taxpayers this year, and every year.” He echoed the governor’s message on public safety. “Senate Republicans know that if you, your family and your community aren’t safe and secure, nothing else matters,” Flanagan said. Many of the policies Cuomo spoke of in his address are already starting to be put into effect. “This is the year we make New York great again,” Cuomo said.

Maletta said it was those matches that meant all the difference in the win. “If either one of those went the other way we wouldn’t have won the title,” Maletta said. “They all came to wrestle; they all showed up to compete, which was great to see.

We psyche ourselves up to win our match, push ourselves to the limit and put ourselves in the best position to support our team.”

Letters to the editor

Historical precedents for America’s tax plan

File photo by Rachael Shapiro

Helping an elderly or disabled neighbor this winter can be as easy as helping shovel snow.

Helping others through 2018 As we forge ahead into 2018, there are a few charitable lessons from the holidays that we should carry with us through the year, especially this winter. December is the single largest month of the year for giving, according to the 2016 Charitable Giving Report published by Blackbaud Institute for Philanthropic Impact. Based on information from thousands of nonprofits, the report found December is when more than 20 percent of all donations are made. It’s called the Season of Giving or The Most Wonderful Time of the Year in no small part because it’s when people are most likely to open their pockets or donate time to help others. There are good Samaritans who have taken caring for others to heart. North Shore residents stopped to check in on an elderly or disabled neighbor during winter storm Grayson or even offered to help shovel out walkways and driveways. Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D) worked with one such individual, identified only as Ken from Ronkonkoma, who helped first responders dig out two motorists stranded on the side of the Long Island Expressway. Last week, PSEG reported more than 16,500 of its customers lost power during the snowstorm. While more than 76 percent had it restored by 4:30 p.m. Jan. 4, according to PSEG, those individuals with electric heat were temporarily left in the cold. Keeping the giving alive year-round can help make the cold, dreary winter brighter for less fortunate and needy families. It doesn’t cost anything but a few minutes to check in on neighbors to a make sure he or she is warm and OK. Better yet, lend a hand to help shovel a walkway or snow blow a path so he or she can safely get in and out of a home in case of an emergency. Families struggling to make ends meet can get assistance in paying for electricity or home heating fuel. Suffolk County’s Home Energy Assistance Program started accepting applications Jan. 2 at 631-853-8820 for families in need of one-time assistance. The nonprofit United Way has opened applications for its Project Warmth, a program that offers a one-time grant for families struggling to pay heating bills. Project Warmth can be contacted by its 211 hotline or by calling 888-774-7633 seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Search through closets for gently used or new winter jackets, scarves, hats or gloves that can be donated to one of the many collection drives currently underway for residents in need of warm clothing. The Town of Brookhaven’s Youth Bureau is collecting donations starting Jan. 12 at town hall, the highway department and senior and recreation centers. Long Island Cares in Hauppauge also accepts donated coats. Many Salvation Army locations even accept appliance donations, like space heaters. Just because the giving season is over does not mean that some of our neighbors are any less in need of assistance. Taking a few minutes to check in on others or point them to a service that offers assistance can help everyone get 2018 off to a positive start.

One fundamental challenge that we face as a nation is the lack of good paying jobs for middle-income Americans. The Republican tax cut is fueled by the notion that if we cut taxes, in which the greatest benefit goes to the wealthy, it will encourage economic growth and lead to good jobs. I hope they are correct, but unfortunately history is not on their side. In 2012, this experiment was attempted in Kansas where Republican Gov. Sam Brownback cut taxes across the board and referred to it as a shot of adrenaline to the economy. In fact, the economy grew more slowly than in neighboring states and now the state must close its $900 million debt through cuts to education, where parts of the state now are forced to have school four days a week. Does anyone see this as a path to a brighter future? The Democrats, on the other hand, believe the best strategy to increase good jobs is to raise taxes on the wealthy and to redistribute that money to the masses. In so doing, the citizens have much more purchasing power, will buy more things, and that money will then spur economic growth and hiring. Again, while historical comparisons are not perfect, they still can be instructive. And the Democratic model is akin to the economic growth model of the 1950s under Republican President Dwight Eisenhower. Taxes on the wealthy were high: 91 percent on income above $200,000 ($1.7 million in today’s dollars). And

The tax overhaul bill signed into law by President Donald Trump in December is not the first time tax cuts for corporations were tried to stimulate growth. the country was reaping the benefits of the GI Bill, which helped returning veterans earn college degrees, train for vocations, support young families, and purchase homes, farms and businesses. The 1950s are considered the golden era of middle-class prosperity in the U.S. This is the Democrat’s model of growth, and it is time tested by Republicans — tax the wealthy, invest in the middle class. Where I believe the Democrats are wrong is with corporate taxes. Our corporate tax rates must remain competitive in the international marketplace to prevent movement offshore, and those should be lowered. But overall, I am most concerned with the Republicans’ constant mantra to lower taxes. I hear it from friends: “Govern-

ment would be best if it just got out of the way and taxed me less.” In response, I ask are the people of Kansas doing better? Where would you cut 5 percent of the federal budget? I would love to hear ideas for where the government could save a large chunk of money. What I fear most is that our Republican leaders actually know that their plan will not work and are still doing it because they want to line the pockets of their wealthy donors and in many cases themselves. Regardless, I fear this tax plan won’t give us the good-paying jobs we were promised. It will just increase our national debt, which our children will need to pay off.

PJSD bond vote was a ‘day of reality’ December 5, 2017, was our day of reality. No longer can the taxpayer be bled as the golden calf. In truth, there is no pot of gold over or under the rainbow for which the taxpayer should be responsible. Hopefully the $30 million bond referendum will be the financial death knell of the politicians’ golden calf. Let their endeavor be to seek the mythical stone and drain the blood from it. Ending my frustration, I shall now seek a “free” lunch for which someone else paid. God bless America.

OpiniOn

That was the freezing week that was

I

n the dark of night, it silently slithered toward the back of the car, spray painting the windows with a sheen of opaque white. It made its way around the car, finding the seam in the doors and filling it with surprisingly strong epoxy. It glided down to the ground and sucked some of the warm air out of the tires. The car was trapped on the driveway with no way to fight off this unwelcome intrudIf its alarm By Daniel Dunaief er. could have gone off, it would have warned us. But, no, that alarm only goes off early in the morning on the weekends, when someone opens the door with the key instead of deactivating the alarm system

D. None of the above

with a button, annoying the neighbors and embarrassing our kids and us in equal measure. It slid under the hood. It paused over the heart of the machine, looking for places to extend its icy fingers into the exposed engine, snickering with delight at the opportunity to turn 3,000 pounds of metal into a frozen couch. It reached into the battery and deactivated the power. On my way to the car, it issued a warning, or was it a challenge, when it wrapped its icy fingers around my neck. I tried to ignore it and stick with my routine. When I turned the key, however, the car coughed weakly. “Come on,” I pleaded, as the cold scraped its icicle hands against my exposed calf. I tried again. The third time was not the charm, either. After getting a jump start, I decided to outsmart the wretched cold. I cleared space in the garage, hauling all the heavy items parked there into the basement. The garage

door and the walls of the house would offer greater protection. No, I wasn’t giving the car a blanket and pillow and setting it up with reruns of “Knight Rider,” but I was protecting the family car. The next day, I went through the basement into the garage, put the key in the ignition and beamed broadly as the internal combustion engine roared to life. Ha! I foiled the frigid air. I told the kids to climb in the car, which warmed up rapidly as a reward for keeping it in the garage, and drove triumphantly to school. The cold wouldn’t undermine my day, I thought, as I maneuvered through the responsibilities of the day. When I returned home, I found that the cold had recruited my garage door to its unworthy cause. I didn’t look carefully enough when I had pulled away from the house. The garage door, fooled by a small piece of snow in the corner of the floor, thought it had hit something and

reopened, where it stayed all day. I pulled the car in, closed the garage and waited for the door to close. When the metal door reached the ground, it reopened. I played a short game with the door, pushing the button just after it started to open again so that the cold air had only a small opening. “I win,” I announced as I entered the warm house. When I turned on the water in my bathroom the next morning, I realized I had lost. The combination of the cold from the open garage from the day before and the small crack at the bottom of the door was enough to enable the cold to lay its frozen hands on my pipes. Several hours later, the plumber, who was busier than a foraging ant during a Fourth of July picnic, shivered in the garage and proclaimed the small opening under the door as the culprit. This cold snap, which finally left the area earlier this week, won this battle.

Dogs, shopping bags and international students

H

ere are a couple of things to think about in this new year. First, it is the Chinese Year of the Dog. Each year is related to a zodiac animal within a 12-year cycle, and the Dog is in the 11th position, after the Rooster and before the Pig. Other Dog years include births in 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994 and so on. You get the pattern. If you are a Dog, you are undoubtedly loyal, honest, kind, amiable and sincere, although you’re By Leah S. Dunaief probably not all that good at communications. As a result, sometimes you are perceived as stubborn. However, you make up for that by always being ready to help others. Enough of that and on to the latest law for Suffolk County. As you

Between you and me

have probably experienced by now, wherever you might be shopping and inclined to make a purchase, you will have to add 5 cents to the total if you want a bag. Two bags: 10 cents. Again, you get the pattern. That means if you are shopping in a supermarket or a hardware store or Macy’s, you will need to pay for each bag. We have, however, been trained for such a situation by Costco. For years, those who shop in their warehouse-like stores have carried purchases out to their cars in shopping carts and then loaded the contents into their trunks, one item at a time. Costco has never provided bags, although it has been known to offer boxes when available. The smart ones among us carry cloth bags into the store in advance so we can load cars more efficiently at the end, and I suppose that is what the rest of us will learn to do if we don’t buy the bags. Although the charge is only a nickel, it is irksome because the nickels don’t go toward funding an environmental cause but revert to the store.

So expect to see people crossing parking lots with the items they have just purchased in their hands. While the perennially curious among us will be fascinated to check out what people buy, the instinct to bag a purchase to prove it was paid for rather than whipped off the shelf and out the door will make some of us uneasy. Best to invest in some large and solid cloth bags, which are what they bring to stores in Europe and elsewhere. And by the way, this should be a great help for our local waterways and wildlife since so many plastic bags have caused harm. So BYOB, or “bring your own bag,” and know that you are helping a fish. On to another topic to consider in 2018. Private schools and universities are going to take a beating from the loss of international students. Total tuition from those students, who generally pay more, will decline as a result of more restrictive immigration policies for those wishing to come to study here. Visa applications are being more carefully scrutinized and foreign students are finding it

harder to stay in the United States after graduation. There had been a huge increase in foreign students here, supplying $39 billion in revenue to the U.S. economy last year, but now schools in Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and other Englishspeaking countries are attracting some of those dollars. The decline in new students nationwide was some 7 percent just this past fall. That means colleges will have to cut offerings and American-educated grad students who may want to settle here will be lost to the nation. It also means colleges will not be able to help low-income students as much with tuition aid. Diversity is also affected. Enrollment is already falling from China and India, the two biggest sources of students from abroad. Of course this is not only a national issue but also a local one: Stony Brook University is here. Long Island has numerous schools, and with fewer students less money will be spent locally. Meanwhile enjoy the weather. Let’s celebrate the thaw.
