County plans forum to discuss legalized marijuana BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Suffolk County is seeking public community input as New York state inches closer to potentially becoming the 11th state to legalize recreational marijuana use. The county Legislature, with both the Health and Public Safety committees, will hold a public hearing Monday, Feb. 25, at 6:30 p.m., where members of the community are invited to share their thoughts on the potential impact of legalized cannabis. “[There are] so many considerations that surround legalizing recreational marijuana,” Legislature Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory (D-Amityville) said in a press release. “This is a new industry that will impact society at every level.” Though acknowledging that legalization could potentially bring revenue to the county, Gregory is more concerned of how legislation of marijuana could empower the black market. He said he is in favor of the continued decriminalization of marijuana, pointing to studies that show minorities are more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than others. Chair of the Health Committee, William “Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport), said he agrees with Gregory on decriminalization of marijuana and said it is important to inform the public on this issue. “We have to do our due diligence,” Spencer said. “There are a lot of logistical issues and
concerns we have to address.” Gregory said the legislators are entering uncharted territory and want to make sure they hear all sides of the issue and explore all angles. They also want to be prepared should this matter come before the county Legislature. “It is important for the sake of regional consistency that, if possible, local governments have a unified approach, and in that spirit I look forward to hearing from our residents and local leaders,” the presiding officer said. “For decades it was drilled into [people’s] heads that this is bad.” Spencer said he is personally against the legalization of recreational marijuana, reasoning there should be a significant amount of time given over preparedness for something like this. He added despite the significant impact legalization would have on the county, it could also have unforeseen consequences, especially concerning both hard and soft drug use. “We are in the middle of an opioid addiction crisis and we have seen a rise in vaping in young people,” he said. Spencer is also concerned about people driving under the influence of marijuana. “This is new territory, it will have an impact on many people’s lives,” Spencer said. “It’s important that we as a community understand this and are prepared.” The hearing will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the county Legislature’s William H. Rogers Building, located at 725 Veterans Memorial Highway in Smithtown.

Port Jefferson Station
New self-storage facilities in Port Jefferson Station divide residents BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM There are two new developments on the horizon for Port Jefferson Station, tucked away in the backwoods along Sheep Pasture Road. Despite first assumptions, they’re not hotels, restaurants or homes, but self-storage facilities. Beyond that, both projects could be located a three-minute drive from each other. At its Jan. 31 meeting, the Town of Brookhaven board voted unanimously to change the zoning on a parcel located along Sheep Pasture Road, across from the Greek Orthodox Church of the Assumption from B1 Residential to L1 Industrial for the purpose of creating the 87,550-square-foot self-storage facility on the nearly five-acre wooded area. “We make our best efforts to balance all of the competing interests and factors and make decisions that take into consideration all concerns.” Brookhaven Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station) said. Enrico Scarda, founder of The Crest Group, a real estate firm based in Hauppauge that owns the property, said he expects to start building the structure within the next eight months. “We had huge community outreach, both to the immediate residents and others, we couldn’t really do anything better than this proposal,” Scarda said. The development was initially proposed in 2018, but complaints about the structure being close to the road along with its large amount of parking spaces and its industrial-seeming facade made the company and town go back to the drawing board. Anthony Graves, the town’s chief environmental analyst, presented designs of the new structure that included an updated rustic facade, a limitation of 35 feet in height and 75
feet of natural buffering between Sheep Pasture Road, Dark Hollow Road and the structure. This pushes the facility back to the northern end of the property, near the LIRR train tracks. The site allows for 44 parking spaces and 41 spaces for the storage of vehicles. Graves and Crest Group’s attorneys said they promised to include solar panels on the roof and have the entrance onto the property come directly across from Harborview Avenue. “The safest thing to do is not have people living on the site,” Graves said. The town said they have received letters of approval from the Three Village Civic Association as well as the Greek Orthodox Church of the Assumption. A number of residents spoke at the meeting, and while some spoke up in favor of the proposal, complementing its setback away from the road and for the convenience it could give some residents and businesses, others spoke their opposition to the development. “The value of my house is definitely going down because of this thing,” Port Jeff Station resident Richard Rowland said. His property was described as a “stone’s throw” away from
the planned storage facility. Cartright said the town worked hard to account for resident’s complaints. “Every change that was made to the project was in response to a request or concern raised by constituents,” the councilwoman said. The Crest Group president said they went ahead with this development instead of homes because of the unique nature of the property. In 2015 the town restricted development at the site as it was once owned by Lawrence Aviation Industries, which dumped harmful chemicals onto the property for years that then leached into the soil and groundwater. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, along with the Town
of Brookhaven, have been working on cleanup efforts. In the meantime, the town promised to restrict certain industrial and residential developments. Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine (R) said self-storage facilities, at least compared to overall development, has relatively little impact in terms of cars, traffic or the environment. “It’s the least impactful on traffic,” the supervisor said. Port Jeff Station resident Jim Fox contested the idea the old Lawrence Aviation property is unavailable for single-family residences development in the near future. “The EPA has said there has been a significant reduction in the plume,” Fox said. “It’s going to be 100 percent drinkable in 10 years.”

Photos by Kyle Barr
Baylis Avenue self-storage Another self-storage structure has been proposed to the Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Civic Association, one with a much smaller footprint than the one down the road. This project, which would be located at 16 Baylis Ave., is currently a small set of undeveloped woods and an empty field zoned L1 Industrial sitting next to a pocket of residential homes and apartments. Designs presented to the civic by Atlanta, Georgia-based developer Talon Inc., show six storage units spaced 30 feet apart, with five being one story and the last being a two-story storage space. Each single-story unit takes up 7,750 square feet and is accessed from the exterior while the two-story has a footprint of 40,500 square feet and will contain an office space as well. Charlie McAteer, the civic’s corresponding secretary, said the developers had already talked to the civic and Brookhaven town in summer 2018, but that no moves were made before the Jan. 22 meeting. Keith Brown, a zoning attorney from Melville-based Brown & Altman LLP, said they chose the site because of its current zoning,
its proximity to the railroad tracks, and the wooded buffer between it and the neighboring Heatherwood House at Port Jefferson apartment complex. “The site is designed with a 76-feet-deep, contiguous, naturally wooded buffer that will serve as a buffer to the south and a 214-feet buffer to the north, and 48 percent of the site will be landscaped.” Designs shown at the civic meeting indicate 53 parking spots with another four stalls designated for loading. The road leading up to the facility is currently pockmarked with potholes, and the property at the end of Baylis currently features a small-scale lumber operation. Brett Hatcher, senior vice president of investments at Columbus, Ohio-based real estate company Marcus & Millichap, who is working with Talon on the project, said they were already aware of the other self-storage site down the road, but wouldn’t comment on if that facility has changed their plans. When asked, Scarda said he was unaware of the proposal for Baylis Avenue. In a letter to the town, the civic relayed its appreciation for the 76-foot buffer and had no other comments on the property.

The young kids and the sea Students work on a Sassafrass 12 canoe at Bayles Boat Shop in Port Jefferson; and a German Pirate sailing dinghy design at right. Photos by David Ackerman
BY DAVID ACKERMAN DACKERMAN@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM The ancient craft of wooden boat building is alive and well at the Bayles Boat Shop. On a dreary Saturday morning in January the workspace, located at Port Jefferson’s Harborfront Park, was ﬁlled with many projects at various stages of completion while workers, ranging from teenagers to senior citizens, all performed jobs necessary to the task of boatbuilding. The space is heated by a wood furnace which allows production to continue throughout the winter months. According to Philip Schiavone, shop director and member for more than 10 years, “We use our mistakes as fuel,” speaking to the spirit of resourcefulness which has enabled the shop to grow purely by the effort of community volunteers. The boat shop was founded by Long Island Seaport and Eco Center, a nonproﬁt organization that tries to promote an appreciation, awareness and understanding of maritime history and the marine environment. The volunteer community at the shop contributes to the overall mission of LISEC by preserving Port Jefferson’s maritime history of boat building, and offering memberships and educational resources to the general public. In 2018 the boat shop started a canoe building project for high school students in coordination with Avalon Park’s Students Taking Action for Tomorrow’s Environment program
in Stony Brook. “This project is an opportunity for the students to learn new skills that they won’t get in high school while also contributing to their community,” said Len Carolan, the event coordinator at the boat shop. Some of the practical skills the students are learning include the safe use of tools, making precise measurements, following detailed construction plans, and using advanced woodworking techniques such as mold making, joinery and wood-ﬁnishing processes. High school student and Port Jeff Yacht Club Sailing School member
Oscar Krug said the project they were working on was a Sassafras 12 canoe kit with laser-cut sections built with a stitch-and-glue process. The ﬁnished product will be donated to Avalon Park where it will either be made available for public use or auctioned off in order to fund the next construction project. Avalon Park’s STATE program operates yearround and provides volunteer opportunities for eighth- through 12th-graders both in Avalon Park and by networking with local nonproﬁts. The program is led by Kayla Kraker, a marine biologist and science educator who aims to involve
students that are “self-motivated leaders and passionate about nature and the outdoors.” Other student projects with the STATE program have included horseshoe crab tagging, organic farming, shellﬁsh restoration and an archway construction. Alongside the canoe build there are multiple projects underway in the boat shop. Members Bill Monsen and John Janicek are in the ﬁnishing stages of their restoration of a sailing dinghy called a German Pirate which will be the shop’s ﬁrst submission to the WoodenBoat Show at Mystic in Connecticut. It has taken three years for this project to develop from a hulk of timber and wood to a stunning restoration, built with careful consideration to historical accuracy. The end product will be a faithful reproduction of the original German Pirate sailing dinghy which was ﬁrst built in 1934 and is usually found only in Europe, making this model a rare discovery in the United States. The shop is also preparing for its annual Quick and Dirty boat build in August where participants will race in the Port Jeff Harbor with boats that are constructed in four hours on the shore. Shop members are currently in the ﬁnishing stages of a rafﬂe boat project which will be offered up at the event to raise funds for the facility. Bayles Boat Shop at Harborfront Park is open for business every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., and Tuesdays 7 to 9 p.m.

The three North Shore towns of Brookhaven, Huntington and Smithtown are grappling with how to best recycle in 2019 after Brookhaven’s facility ground to a halt in October 2018. In that month, Brookhaven’s recycling contractor Green Stream Recycling prematurely terminated its 25-year agreement to operate the town’s recycling plant in Yaphank. The announcement came as collected recyclables piled up like mountains outside the Yaphank facility as China’s new National Sword policy took effect, implemented in January 2018, which set strict contamination limits on recyclable materials it would accept. Up until then, China had been the world’s largest importer of recycled materials, and now local towns had to scramble to find a new market to sell to. All three towns solicited bids from recycling companies in the hopes of finding the most efficient and green solution for its residents. The result is Brookhaven, Huntington and Smithtown have all taken slightly different approaches based on what services they’ve been offered. Residents have been puzzled by new recycling schedules, as the townships are still attempting to explain what has changed with their recycling and how it will impact the future.
out newspapers ads and broadcasted the changes on radio, television and social media at the tail end of 2018. The town is planning another media blitz for 2019, including another mailer to all residents along with additional newspaper and radio ads. The annual mailer sent to Brookhaven residents, which includes information about the new recycling system, costs $30,000. Otherwise the town has spent approximately $12,000 on newspaper ads and roughly $10,000 on radio ads so far. Andrade said the town is continuing to advertise the changes. Further changes to Brookhaven’s recycling system could again appear on the horizon. Matt Miner, chief of operations, said the town is looking for means of getting its recycling facility restarted, though this would require a new contractor to partner with Brookhaven. Andrade said he hopes to have the facility running again before the six-month contract with Smithtown is up. In addition, the recycling commissioner said he is awaiting news of the current litigation between the town and Green Stream over the voided contract. For now, Brookhaven is sticking with dual stream, as officials said single-stream recycling resulted in a worse quality product that at this point was near impossible to sell. For more information, watch www.youtube. com/watch?v=nvsqRAl3QcU.
Once the bottom of the recycling market fell out from China’s decision, Brookhaven was caught directly in the storm that followed, with the Green Stream facility being the center of multiple towns’ recycling efforts. “It’s not the system that so much changed, as much as what was allowable,” said Christopher Andrade, the town’s recycling commissioner. “[China] went down from 5 percent contamination to 0.5 percent. It wasn’t the equipment that caused the problem, it was the standard that caused the problem.” At the Jan. 17 Brookhaven Town Board meeting, council members unanimously voted to sign a $760,000 contract with West Babylon-based Winters Bros. Waste Systems of Long Island to take their materials to Smithtown’s Municipal Services Facility in Kings Park. The new standards mean Brookhaven residents can only put out the most common No. 1 and 2 plastics, which are collected together with aluminum such as food cans. Paper products are collected separately. The town asked that any unclean paper products such as used pizza boxes be thrown out with regular trash instead. Glass is no longer being picked curbside by the town, and instead can be placed at one of seven drop-off points located around the town. To advertise these changes, Brookhaven took
The Town of Smithtown opted to take a unique approach to dual-stream recycling by taking on two different contracts in hopes of getting their best payout for recycled materials. In December, Smithtown Supervisor Ed Wehrheim (R) signed a six-month contract with Winters Bros. Waste Systems of Long Island to pick up all collected paper and cardboard recycling in exchange for paying the town $30 per ton. These collections are expected to net Smithtown approximately $177,000 per year, if they choose to extend the contract. The town entered a separate contract with Islandia-based Trinity Transportation, which will take unprocessed curbside metals and plastics, limited to plastics Nos. 1 and 2, with $68 per ton being paid by the town, at a total cost of approximately $104,000 per year. Overall, the combination of two contracts along with money received from Brookhaven for shipping their recyclables for pickup, will net the town approximately $178,500 per year in total, according to town spokeswoman Nicole Garguilo. Residents who wish to recycle their glass bottles and containers can drop off materials at three locations throughout town: Municipal Services Facility in Kings Park, Town Hall and the Highway Department building on Route

Smithtown Town Board has budgeted $16,000 for its public campaign regarding the return to dual-stream, the least of any township but also with the smallest population to reach. Garguilo said many of the graphics and printed materials have been designed in-house, which has helped save money. She added that the supervisor and town officials will be speaking with senior citizen groups and community associations throughout early 2019 to help re-educate residents who may not be technologically savvy.

Huntington After the Yaphank plant’s closure, the Town of Huntington signed a two-year contract with Omni Recycling of Babylon returning to a dual-stream process with papers and cardboard being collected on alternate weeks from plastics, aluminum and glass. The town’s total recycling costs will depend on how well the town can re-educate residents and their compliance, according to Supervisor Chad Lupinacci (R). “The only vendors continuing single-stream recycling would have trucked it off Long Island at a cost of $120 to $135 a ton,” he said. “It’s a matter of re-educating the public and getting them used to the old system again.” Lupinacci said to stick with a single-stream process would have cost the town approximately $1.7 million to $2 million a year based on bids received from contractors. As such, the
town decided to move to a dual-stream process where its costs will be determined by how much of the collected material is clean enough to be repurposed. The town will receive $15 per ton of recyclable papers and cardboard delivered to Omni Recycling, and be billed $78 per contaminated ton as determined by the facility. “We require lids and covers on the recycling bins to reduce contamination from dirt and moisture,” the supervisor said. “Soiled and moldy paper are not recyclable.” The Town of Huntington expects to collect 900,000 tons of paper and cardboard from its residents. Assuming that 80 percent will be clean enough to recycle, Lupinacci said the town will wind up paying out approximately $32,000 for its paper goods. Unlike Brookhaven and Smithtown, Huntington town residents can continue to put all plastics, Nos. 1 through 7, and glass bottles out for curbside pickup. Based on an average of 550,000 tons collected annually, the town will pay $75 a ton, at a cost of $412,500 a year, to recycle these materials. The Town of Huntington has set aside nearly $86,000 in 2019 — more than Brookhaven and Smithtown combined — to educate its residents about the return to dual stream. According to Huntington’s website, dual-stream recycling is the collection of bottles, cans and plastics one week, with paper and corrugated cardboard the following week. Half that budget will be paid by a grant obtained from the state Department of Environmental Conservation, RECYCLING CONTINUED ON A9

Continued from A8 according to Lupinacci. To date, the town has spent $1,000 on social media ads and roughly $43,000 on printed materials including direct mailers and calendars. The supervisor said it seems to be paying off. “Omni-Westbury, [which] does our collection, said the quality of our first week’s recyclables was better than expected,” Lupinacci said. The first collection of papers and cardboard in January yielded 104 tons, only 10 percent of which was considered contaminated, according to the supervisor. “I think people are adjusting, but it will take a few weeks,” he said.

Glass: Is it worth collecting?
Glass is a product many town officials have found difficult to sell, as there’s not much market for it. Brookhaven and Smithtown are no longer accepting it as part of curbside pickup, but
rather asking their residents to bring glass bottles to various drop-off locations. Collections at these locations has increased, according to Miner, and Brookhaven Town has installed larger containers to meet that demand. To date, Brookhaven has sent two pilot shipments with Jersey City-based Pace Glass Recycling, and Miner said the town is looking to set up some sort of long-term contract. Andrade said the town is not currently making money from sending the glass to Pace, but the only costs incurred are from the town employees hauling the product up to New Jersey. “This is actually a recycling of the glass, which most of the towns on Long Island have not been able to achieve,” Miner said. Andrade added there is a chance Brookhaven could land a deal with the New Jersey-based company. “You have to establish relationships, so we’re still in the beginning of the dance there,” the recycling commissioner said. “They’re taking a look at the quality of our material … they’re liking the material so I’m cautiously optimistic.” Smithtown elected officials renewed a prior inter-municipal agreement with Brookhaven at their Jan. 24 meeting, agreeing to ship the town’s collected glass to their neighbor for processing.

Democratic committee chairman on election/policies for next two years BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM In the lexicon of tarot, cards used by soothsayers for divination, there are many cards used to describe a person’s lot in life. If Rich Schaffer, the Suffolk County Democratic Committee chairman, could be represented by any card, it would be the chariot. Schaffer is at the head of the race, with the Democrats taking majority positions in the New York State Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives, but he’s holding onto the reins of two horses, the moderate and far-left elements of his party, and he said his task is to keep both heading in the same direction. “My job’s been described as the therapist in chief,” said Schaffer, who is also Town of Babylon supervisor. “I’m always either talking somebody off the ledge or helping them through an issue.” In last year’s elections, the Democratic Party won big both in New York state and nationally, securing the state Senate as well as the Assembly, and gaining a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. It was a change of pace for the party, which was beleaguered after its loss during the 2016 elections that saw Donald Trump (R) sent to the White House. In Suffolk County, many GOP members retained their seats despite hard campaigns from

the Dems. Longtime Republican representatives such as state Sen. Ken LaValle (R-Port Jefferson) kept their seats in Albany, while U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) won out at 51.5 percent against his Democratic challenger Perry Gershon. Still, Schaffer said they have made strides in the county, pointing to the election of state Sen. Monica Martinez (D-Brentwood) who won out over her GOP rival Dean Murray by 2,996 votes. Schaffer added that he thinks the next time District 1 is up for grabs, it could swing blue. Suffolk County “has been blue in the past,”
the Democratic committee chairman said. Specifically, he points to the 35-day government shutdown that was put on hold for three weeks Jan. 25. Schaffer laid the blame for the shutdown at the president’s feet and said his Republican supporters in Congress would take the brunt of the blame. “What they are doing to people’s livelihoods and their survival is unconscionable,” he said. “A political debate has now turned into almost scorched earth, where people’s lives are at stake.” On the state level Schaffer said there are, all in all, six Democratic members elected to the state Senate who will represent Long Island, including new members Martinez and James Gaughran (D-Northport). This is important to the party commissioner, as in other years when the Democrats had majorities in both state houses, his experience was many of those focused on New York City rather than Long Island’s more suburban elements. The differences between those two subsets of Democrats is something Schaffer said he’s particularly aware of. Nationally, much has been said about the rise of much more left-leaning Democrats, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Bronx). She has been open about progressive ideas such as universal health care, establishing tuition-free colleges and trade
schools, and creating a marginal tax system as high as 70 percent, which would mostly affect those in the wealthiest tax brackets. A bill for single-payer health care is currently being circulated in the state Assembly. Schaffer said he was not against policies such as universal health care, but he wanted the discussion to be had up in Albany about how the state was planning to pay for that program. Schaffer also questioned the viability of a Cortez-like candidate in Suffolk County. “I mean it’s easy for [Cortez] to speak like she does with the district she comes from, when your main election battle is the primary,” Schaffer said. “When you’re running Suffolk County North Shore and your district is not as friendly registration wise, this gets to if you elect Democrats who support basic Democratic ideas.” Overall, Schaffer was adamant the best way to win Democratic seats in Suffolk County was to form coalitions, work off core democratic principles and promise to work toward local issues. “You can’t have Cortez running in East Northport,” he said. “Some people will argue with me that ‘Yes, you can,’ but it has not been my experience out here. That’s not to say we can’t have things on the progressive agenda, but they have to be spoken about in a way that’s going to get you 50 percent plus one.”

s you search for your next home, scouting potential neighborhoods should be a crucial step in your house search. It is important to get a sense of a new neighborhood to ensure it complements your preferred lifestyle – and your wallet. So you’ve walked through a potential home and parked in its driveway; you’ve only achieved a glimpse of the neighborhood’s characteristic and personality.

Really getting to know a neighborhood requires a little extra time and attention. TEST DRIVE YOUR COMMUTE Before deciding on a new home, take a test drive of your potential commute. How far are you willing to drive back and forth to work each day? It can be easy to assume an answer to this question, but it is en-
tirely different to actually live it. The “perfect” place may not seem so perfect if you don’t feel like you spend much time there. TAKE A WALK AFTER SCHOOL Walking your new potential neighborhood is a great way to get a feel for it. Take your stroll soon after schools get out and see how many children are walking around, how
traffic picks up (or doesn’t), and just generally how active your neighbors are during the day. Are there restaurants, cafes or shops near by? A lot of through traffic? All these things will help you gauge the atmosphere in the neighborhood. COUNT ‘FOR SALE’ SIGNS Drive through the streets of a neighborhood and count the number of “for sale” and “foreclosure”
signs. Are there multiple signs down a single street? While this could just be a coincidence in terms of changes of life circumstances for a group of neighbors, this also could be a sign of a potential issue. You want to be sure you are investing in a stable neighborhood – not one that is about to turn a corner. Greenshoot Media

Having the pot talk
Over time, parents have learned to have conversations with their kids about drug use — whether they should not use at all or to use responsibly. With New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) stating his hope to pass legislation to legalize recreational marijuana during his recent 2019 State of the State address — something that has been in the works for years — we think the time is right to discuss marijuana use in the same way we do with cigarettes or alcohol. While laws will likely prevent minors from buying the drug, legalizing means, in general, it will be easier to find, and parents may need to remind teenagers that just because something is for sale, just as with other drugs, it doesn’t mean they can or should purchase it. Of course, what’s available at parties always comes into play. Many times, parents may have the talk about alcohol with their children, stressing that their judgment can easily be impaired after only a drink or two, but do they include that smoking a joint can do the same? Just like with alcohol, it’s not safe to drive a car or operate machinery after using marijuana, as it can impair judgment, motor coordination and reaction time. The sage advice from parents that they would rather have their children wake them in the middle of the night with a phone call asking to be picked up at a party than having them get behind the wheel after drinking — or in a car with someone who has been — would apply to marijuana use as well. Besides waking up mom or dad, there are always the options of sleeping in the house where the party is taking place, getting a ride from a designated driver, or getting a cab or Uber. That’s a golden rule that even adults need to abide by as driving while impaired by a drug in New York state can lead to a $500 to $1,000 fine, a license suspension for at least six months and a possible oneyear jail term. If marijuana is legalized, being over the age limit will mean smoking or eating edible cannabis will become a choice, rather than a secretive, unlawful vice. And if recreational use of pot becomes legal, due to the danger of impairment, despite the new law, many employers may still have random drug testing — something for people to consider as they seek employment. If state officials legalize the recreational use of marijuana, there will be something else in common with cigarettes. While many may think smoking a joint doesn’t cause the same health problems as cigarettes, according to the American Lung Association, smoking marijuana can still pose a risk to lung health. To help with discussions about pot use, residents can find out what’s on the minds of others Feb. 25 when the Suffolk County Legislature invites people to share their thoughts about legalizing recreational marijuana at a public hearing at the William H. Rogers Building in Smithtown. We at TBR News Media will be there. With the possibility of New York becoming the 11th state to legalize recreational use of marijuana, it’s time for parents to get ahead of any problems by discussing drug use with their children.

Letters to the editor
U.S. Senate minority leader should negotiate Most states that have a U.S. Senate minority leader benefit from their senator reaching this position of power. Now, this position is not as powerful as the Senate majority leader, but nevertheless still controls senate’s execution of law by holding the key to having 60 votes, which allows most laws to pass. Having our Sen. Chuck Schumer leading his party’s Democratic caucus, its sole mission is to resist all actions by President Donald Trump (R).
That is fine when your focus is to stop all laws passing, but what it does is to give up his strong position at the negotiating table to make concessions for things the administration wants. Schumer is more interested in winning accolades from his big Democratic donors rather than achieving benefits for his New York citizens. I see that our New York senator has signed on to a group to lobby for, or eliminate, the caps on the state and local tax deductions of $10,000.
Well, Mr. Minority Leader, what happens when you pick up the phone and dial the president and say you would be open to a $5.7 billion request for his barrier/wall in a trade for Trump’s help in reinstating the SALT deduction? So, when you are filing your income taxes by April, thank Trump and the ever-shrinking minority leader. Philip Nicholas Port Jefferson
Views relating to the border situation I would like to respond to the TBR News Media editorial from Jan. 10 titled “Bridges, not walls.” It is interesting that the editorial states that the president was “fact checked,” yet failed to mention some important facts relating to the border situation. Consider the fact that depending on the source you believe there are estimates of between 11 to 22 million people in this country illegally. Just for some perspective, that is somewhere between almost double the entire population of Long Island — more than 7.8 million in 2017 — and compares with the 2018 population of the entire state of New York, which was almost 20 million, according to Wikipedia. Clearly, the border security measures proposed by both parties over the years have not been effective. I know visa overstays have contributed to this problem as
well. However, that does not mean a physical border barrier of some type is not a necessary component of any comprehensive border security plan. Just as our schools have secured their entrances with physical barriers — locks and vestibules — first, in addition to technology and staff, it is reasonable to do the same at our border. Another fact not mentioned is the MS-13 gang problem that has devastated Long Island, where more than two dozen murders have occurred since 2010 of mostly young minority victims. That is not a “manufactured crisis” as some other letter writers have called it. It is real people dying like the four young men slaughtered in a park approximately 12 miles from the Three Village area. Is that overlooked because it doesn’t fit a certain ideology to acknowledge? God forbid that happened in Avalon Park or
West Meadow Beach, would some of my more liberal friends feel the same about border security? Would it be a “manufactured crisis” then? The MS-13 problem isn’t only on Long Island. It is happening in other parts of our country as well. Throughout this debate, all sides agree that legal immigration is a good thing for our country. Can’t we also agree that breaking our laws is never a good thing? We have been promised that our borders would be secured for decades and it never happened. This president is taking action. Whether you love him or hate him, maybe, just maybe, he can achieve what others didn’t. Let’s try to be reasonable and not use “bumper sticker” slogans like, “Bridges, not walls,” shall we?

We wish to thank George Altemose for bringing the subject of global warming to these pages, as it is one of the most important issues facing our planet today. Although he and almost everyone else has moved on from denying that the Earth is warming, the crucial question now is what is the cause? To understand the cause of anything, it is important to gather all kinds of observations and measurements, and see if different hypotheses can explain what has been observed. Climate scientists have been doing this for the past century, and now a very large majority have concluded that the cause of the warming is increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere — the highest in 800,000 years — from the vastly increased burning of fossil fuels since the beginning of the industrial era. The
mechanism for this warming by CO2 has been understood since 1896, and detailed models of the process have improved greatly in the past years. In 2001, the models correctly predicted the warming that we have seen since then, and improved models can now give us an idea of where we will be in 30 years — and it is not good. The leaders of almost all of the nations in the world have heeded the advice of the climate scientists and agreed to try to put us on a path of decreasing the CO2 that we put into the atmosphere. One of the most important things that can be done is to temporarily use natural gas as fuel, since for the same amount of energy, it releases only half as much CO2 as does burning coal or oil. Weaning the economy from oil is much harder. More efficient vehicles will help but the real solution is to switch
to electric vehicles that will ultimately get their energy from renewable, clean sources to make electricity. These transitions will not be easy, and there will be costs, but there are also tremendous opportunities for businesses to open up new markets for new products. Any plan must also include ways to help those whose livelihood is displaced by changing sources of energy. But one thing is absolutely clear: For the good of the world and for the future of our grandchildren, we must do it, no matter that our president and others substitute their gut feelings for facts and rationality. Gene Sprouse and Peter Bond Editor’s note: The authors are both retired physicists who teach an Osher Lifelong Learning Institute workshop at Stony Brook University that includes energy and climate change issues.

Not exactly a fairy tale evening
h, Cinderella. The glass slipper. The handsome prince. A story that even frustrated, annoyed, irritable teenagers can love, right? That’s what we thought when we bought the tickets. My wife and I enjoy good music, lyrical singing and creative costumes. So we ﬁgured we’d share some of that with our teenage children before we pack them up and ship them off to D. None the next chapter of their lives. of the above The outing BY DANIEL DUNAIEF started out with such promise. I drove my teenagers to meet my wife. We connected with her outside a garage, where she used her parking pass to get us into a building several
blocks from the show. As soon as she got in the car, she could tell the mood was dark and foreboding. “What’s the matter?” she asked. “Nothing,” Angry 1 and Angry 2 muttered in unison. “Do you not want to see the show?” No answer. “Well? Would you rather go home? Dad can take you back.” No answer. “Can I please have my ticket?” my wife asked, sticking out her hand. “I will go alone.” “No,” I replied. “I want to go, too.” Walking through a city we didn’t know well, we raced to get to the theater before 7 p.m. It wasn’t easy, but we got in by 6:58 and racewalked to the door. “You can’t come in,” the usher said. We slumped our shoulders. “But it’s not 7 p.m.,” my wife observed. “Yes, but the show doesn’t start until 7:30. We’ll open the doors in a few minutes.” Funny, right? Well, no, not in the moment.
“Wait, this starts at 7:30 p.m.?” my son asked. “How long is it?” The usher informed us it was three 45-minute acts, with two 15-minute intermissions. That meant we’d get home around 11 p.m. “I have so much homework,” he lamented. We decided I would retrace our steps back to our car so he could get his backpack, order an Uber and send him on his way. I took a ticket and ran with him to the car. Fortunately, the Uber transfer went well. As I trotted back to the theater, I realized I was missing something. I called my wife. “What’s the matter?” she asked, sensing the continuing unraveling of the evening. “I can’t ﬁnd the ticket. It must have fallen out of my pocket.” “Oh no, how are you going to get in?” We talked for a moment and then I realized we could show my wife’s two tickets to the usher with whom I spoke to on the way out. Our daughter could hover near the seats. Fortunately, the usher let me return. Once the show began with frenzied music
and considerable dancing, we waited. And waited. And waited. No one spoke. No one sang. It was, to the surprise of all three of us, a ballet. Now, I know many ﬁne people who love the ballet. Just as I know many wonderful, albeit misguided, people who love the Patriots. For the three of us, however, a ballet was not only unexpected, it was also unwelcome. By the time intermission began, we were laughing. “Should we stay for the second act?” my wife asked. We stayed for another 45 minutes and left the theater. “You know, it could have been worse,” our daughter said, as we were driving back home. “Oh yeah, how?” my wife and I wondered, incredulous. “All four of us could have seen it,” she said. We chuckled as we hit every red light on the way home from the shattered glass slipper of an evening.
my sister and brother. My two nephews are at SUNY, so we are a fan club. Q: You undoubtedly travel a lot. What do you do to keep yourself healthy and protect your voice during plane trips? A: I try to stay hydrated, get enough rest. I live moderately and believe in mind over matter. And I do the same as others, trying to avoid those who are coughing on the plane. Q: I believe you grew up in a musical family, your parents both being high school music teachers. Did you always want to sing? A: It was the furthest thing from my mind! I loved horses, thought I might be a vet, or maybe the ﬁrst lady president — which has yet to happen. I had ambition, was a very good student. I always wrote music growing up. But I never heard of a woman composer so that wasn’t an option. I majored in music ed, my parents thought that was a good idea, went on to the Eastman School and Julliard. Then I fell in love with jazz. Q: Do you get nervous when you are to perform? A: I was not a gregarious person, that wasn’t my personality. I was shy. So that was one of the skills I had to learn. Q: Do you have a favorite role or composer? A: I’m not so much into favorites. Verdi,
Strauss ... Q: Do you speak other languages? A: Yes, I speak French, German, some Italian. Q: Do you need to know those languages to sing in them? A: No, there have been great singers who have not known the language they were singing in. You do not need to know the language but it is helpful. Q: You have two daughters. How did you manage the work/life balance? A: It’s hard for a working mother. You never feel you are doing anything well. You have to manage everything. It’s challenging. Fortunately I have a tremendous amount of energy and a great work ethic. Q: Did you get that from your parents? A: (Pauses.) Yes, probably. Q: Do you ever have nightmares that you had forgotten your lines? A: Yes, those kinds of nightmares like everyone else. Q: Did that ever happen? A: No. Q: Are your dreams set to music? A: Hmm, I don’t really know. Q: What else about music? A: I’m working with the National Institutes of Health. When children are exposed to music
early, their oral comprehension is increased. Studies have shown that. A major passion of the opera superstar is the intersection of music, health and neuroscience. She is artistic adviser at the Kennedy Center and has launched a collaboration with NIH — the ﬁrst of its kind between a performing arts center and the largest supporter of biomedical research in the world. She gives presentations on her concert tours with scientists, music therapists and medical professionals. She recently co-authored an article with Dr. Francis Collins, NIH director, for the Journal of the American Medical Association. Be sure to come out for the fundraising Stony Brook University Gala Saturday night, March 2, at the Staller Center. You will not only hear fabulous music. You will see one of the 21st century’s most remarkable women.
Conversing with Renée Fleming, opera superstar
s beﬁts a woman born on St. Valentine’s Day, Renée Fleming grew up to become the sweetheart of the opera world. Possessing a powerful yet silky voice, great beauty and impressive acting skills, Fleming has moved from a single dimension to any number of new musical venues, with a major role in Broadway’s “Carousel,” singing the national anthem at the 2014 Super Bowl, and innumerable appearances on television, in movies and in concerts. The opera diva will be the star attraction at Stony Brook UniBetween versity’s Gala, the you and me major fundraiser at the Staller Center BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF March 2. I’ve long known about her spectacular professional career but thought I would like to know more about the person that she is, so I had a brief, 10-minute chat with her on the phone at a hotel in Barcelona, Spain. We were time-limited to protect her voice, which is as immediately recognizable when she speaks as when she ﬁlls the Metropolitan Opera House with glorious music. Q: You are coming to Stony Brook to perform. Do you have some special connection with SUNY? A: Yes, I went to SUNY Potsdam, and so did
