Budgets, secondary props pass in PJ, Comsewogue Incumbent Tracy Zamek; newcomers René Tidwell, Ryan Walker win PJ BOE seats after heated campaign BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Port Jefferson $45 million þ BARBARA DONLON

ALEX PETROSKI

Voters in the greater Port Jefferson area went to the polls in a giving mood May 15. Port Jefferson School District residents approved the $44.9 million budget with 774 voting in favor and 362 against, while also passing a second proposition permitting the release of capital funds for a long-planned partial roof repair project at the high school. “I’m really happy that the community came out and endorsed our spending plan for next year,” Superintendent Paul Casciano said after the results were announced. “It’s really important. They showed a lot of support for public education in Port Jefferson School District, so we’re really, very happy about that.” Across town in Comsewogue School District, the $91.9 million budget was also passed by an easy margin; 829 to 263. The district’s approximately $32 million capital bond proposition received 768 votes in support to just 315 against. The 15-year borrowing plan includes about $3 million in interest and will provide funds for upgrades in each of the district’s six buildings. The projects selected were the byproduct of extensive planning on the part of the facilities committee, a group

Port Jeff’s approved budget includes a roughly 2.3 percent tax levy increase compared to the current year, while Comsewogue’s increase will be 2.1 percent. Tracy Zamek, an incumbent on Port Jeff’s school board, secured one of the three seats up for grabs in a six-way race, securing 604 votes. She’ll be joined on the board by newcomers Ryan Walker, who received 660 votes, and René Tidwell, who

Officials break ground on first phase of ‘Uptown Funk’ project BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

KYLE BARR

After years of planning upper Port’s redevelopment to deal with blighted buildings, traffic and a lack of parking space, Port Jefferson Village officials are finally ready to say, “Don’t believe me, just watch.” As part of the village’s revitalization efforts — a project dubbed “Uptown Funk” — village, Suffolk County and Brookhaven Town officials held a groundbreaking ceremony May 9 for a new parking lot in the space at the corner of Texaco Avenue and Linden Place. The lot should allow for another 74 parking spaces, largely for Long Island Rail Road commuters using the Port Jefferson train station. “The village is thrilled to partner with the county, Empire State Development and the Long Island Rail Road on improvements in upper Port to enhance pedestrian connectivity and safety, revitalize blighted commercial properties, and promote safe living and economic growth,” Mayor Margot Garant said. The revitalization of upper Port is part of the Connect LI project of Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D). The plan behind the initiative is to use both existing and new public transportation options to connect people to commercial centers and main streets as in Port Jefferson. “This is a model of what we need to be doing around the region,” Bellone said. “My administration is committed to providing

Representatives from Port Jefferson Village, Town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County, developer The Gitto Group and the Long Island Rail Road break ground in upper Port. funding to assist our towns and villages with these revitalization projects. The project we broke ground on today is a major step in continuing our efforts to make Suffolk County a great place to live, work and raise a family.” Phase one of the project will cost $850,000 to be funded by grants from the county’s Jumpstart program and other financial contributions. Along with the parking lot the first phase of the project will improve sidewalks that lead to the train station from The Hills at Port Jefferson apartment complex. Phase two of the project will include a renovation of the north, east and south LIRR parking lots with new pavement, lighting and plaza entryway. Phase three will create “Station Street,” a new one-way road that will provide access to

the new renovated parking lots. Garant said the road should also reduce congestion on Main Street and allow for smoother access into the train station parking lots. Part of the hope for the project is that students coming from Stony Brook University and other commuters will help create interest in the area, which in turn should incentivize businesses to invest in upper Port and remedy the blighted property seen on Main Street, according to Garant. “We want feet on the street,” Garant said. Last year Nicole Christian, a consultant at law firm HB Solutions and grant writer for the village, helped apply for several grants for the Uptown Funk project. Last year Port Jefferson Village was awarded $250,000 in Jumpstart money to start plans on the project and

the village also applied for a grant from the Empire State Development Corporation, a state entity, for $500,000. “Empire State Development is excited to support this roadway realignment that will foster this transit-oriented development and revitalize this community to create a true linkage from upper Port Jefferson to the waterfront,” Howard Zemsky, ESD president, said in an email. Part of the purpose of the new parking lot is also to help facilitate foot traffic from The Hills at Port Jefferson to the train station across the street. “All of the apartments in two separate buildings, which were completed in 2016, have already been rented out and there is already a long wait list to get in,” said Tony Gitto of The Gitto Group, the real estate development company behind development of the apartment complex, during the event. The Town of Brookhaven and Port Jefferson Village worked with Gitto and his company to create the two-building complex. To incentivize the creation of the apartment complex, Brookhaven Industrial Development Agency, an arm of municipalities dedicated to funding projects to stimulate job creation and economic growth, gave Gitto and his company sales tax exemptions on construction items, a mortgage tax exemption and a 10-year property tax abatement. Gitto said that they provided money toward the funding of the new parking lot. “They hired the contractors and we made a financial contribution,” Gitto said.

Earl L. Vandermeulen High School in the Port Jefferson School District

Port Jeff high school ranked among nation’s best BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM The accolades keep coming for Earl L. Vandermeulen High School and Port Jefferson School District. After being one of about 300 schools in the United States named a National Blue Ribbon School for 2017 by the U.S. Department of Education, the high school became part of another exclusive club this month. U.S. News & World Report, a news organization known for its rankings relating to education, health and more, gave Port Jeff’s high school a Gold ranking earlier this month, the highest ranking achievable. Just 2.4 percent of eligible schools across the country earn the Gold designation, according to a press release from the school district. “We are honored to receive this distinction,” Superintendent Paul Casciano said in a statement. “In addition to the determination of our high school

administrators and educators in leading our students in a high-quality education, they are committed to preparing them for continued academic successes in the future.” The multistep ranking process included ensuring the eligible schools serve all of their students well, using state proficiency test results and their graduation rates as benchmarks and assessing how well-prepared students are for college-level work. Based on the evaluation, ELVHS was ranked 55th in New York State and 482nd of the nation’s 20,582 eligible schools, the release said. The school was also honored earlier this year with its sixth consecutive Reward School designation by the New York State Education Department, meaning ELVHS was among the top 20 percent of schools in the state for English language arts and math performance for the last two school years, among other criteria.

Port Jeff Station resident opening home for at-risk girls BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM ALEX PETROSKI

— Celina Wilson GOOGLE MAPS

Bridge of Hope Resource Center founder Celina Wilson, inset, is planning to turn a family owned home on Roe Avenue into a shelter for at-risk girls ages 16 to 21. She was living with her now-husband’s family in the same Port Jeff Station home about 30 years ago, she recalled, when a 16-year-old boy knocked on her door. Even though it was 10 p.m., the then-21-year-old answered. “He was wondering if he could sleep in our house,” Wilson said. “He was tired. He had a fight with his mom, and I’m figuring, ‘He must have knocked at plenty of houses. Why ours?’ We didn’t understand. But he asked us, ‘Please, just for the night, can I just come in?’ What went through my mind was, ‘If we don’t let him in, he’s going to be in the street and who knows what?’” In the morning, Wilson remembers waking up wanting to hear more of his personal story, but by that time, he was already gone. “I realized then, ‘Oh my gosh, there’s so many young people out there, I wonder what his mom was thinking, if she knew he was somewhere safe,’” she said. “The story repeats itself if we fast forward, but it’s different today because of what our young people are facing.” Wilson said the home will be funded by donations and some money from the New York State Office of Children and Family Services, which will also help in placing some of the girls in the home, though space will be available to accommodate the weary traveler like the one who knocked on her door 30 years ago. “We feel the house is going to be a place where families can send their teens and work

on situations that they themselves cannot work on in the home, and prevent them from running away,” Wilson said. “The goal is to reunite that youth back with their family.” She said the length of stay for occupants will be determined on a case-by-case basis, with an eye toward sheltering those most in need, though she estimated many will be allowed to live there for up to 18 months. Each of the tenants will be expected to participate in counseling sessions and work toward agreed-upon goals, all while Bridge of Hope will be maintaining contact with the families to try to rebuild lines of communication. Wilson said the organization will follow up with the tenants even after they leave the home to make sure they stay on track as they grow up and prepare for independence. One representative from the resource center will live permanently at the home, who Wilson referred to as the “house mom,” though aides, case workers and other specialists will also be on hand on a rotating basis seven days a week. She said tenants will be supervised at all times and expected to be at the home unless they’re at school, work or an organized activity. She said admittance into the home will have nothing to do with demographics, as family conflict is common among all segments of society. “It could be anyone’s child that is out there on the street,” Wilson said. “It could be my child.” One community member who was helped by Wilson and Bridge of Hope said she sees

the organization’s founder as the perfect person for an initiative like John’s House. “She made things happen for me,” said the woman, who asked to remain anonymous. She said Wilson and the center worked with her for five years, assisting in finding work and getting her life on track while dealing with a physical disability. “She’s right for these kids. A lot of young people don’t have a place to go.” She called Wilson a good person and a woman of her word, adding she wished the founder would run for political office. Wilson said she contacted the Suffolk County Youth Bureau, an entity under the county executive’s purview dedicated to ensuring effective management of county funds for youth services, for assistance in establishing policies for her initiative. She said the organization also conducted an inspection at the house, which will undergo minor renovations prior to her October target date for opening. Though members of the bureau’s leadership declined to comment on the dealings with Bridge of Hope, one of its responsibilities includes monitoring and evaluating youth programs, research and planning; information and referrals; and training and technical assistance for community-based youth organizations, according to its website. Wilson said she sees John’s house as a fitting tribute for the man it’s named after, who migrated to the United States from Jamaica in the Caribbean. He worked for years as a custodian at John T. Mather Memorial Hospital. “He left such a legacy here and abroad that we thought it appropriate to call it John’s House because he lived a life of service, kindness and love to his fellow man,” she said.

As the old cliché goes, it’s impossible to know when opportunity will knock, just be ready to answer the door when it does. Opportunity knocked for Celina Wilson about 30 years ago, both literally and figuratively. She went on to dedicate her life’s work to the opportunity that was standing at her front door. The Port Jefferson Station resident founded Bridge of Hope Resource Center with her husband, George, in the late 1990s, a nonprofit dedicated to strengthening communities through family communication. The organization for years has been holding seminars, forums, workshops and other similar events to educate the community and arm parents with strategies for connecting with teens and young adults. Wilson and the organization’s overarching ethos is that education and prevention are the best means for keeping kids from falling victim to the ills lurking in society, like drug addiction and depression. In 2018, Wilson is hoping to advance Bridge of Hope’s mission a step further. Wilson’s in-laws lived in Port Jefferson Station for about 30 years, but 10 years ago, after her husband’s mother died, her fatherin-law, John Wilson, decided to move out of the longtime family home on Roe Avenue. The home was left to Bridge of Hope to use as an asset, sheltering families in crisis who had a hard time finding a place to live. Wilson said the only stipulation was the tenants needed to find work and contribute to the rent. Over the course of the last decade, Wilson said three or four families have stayed at the home. Now, she plans to repurpose it to serve as a shelter for at-risk girls between 16 and 21 years old. The shelter — which will be called John’s House, to honor Wilson’s late father-in-law — will be a place for girls who run away from home or pose a risk of doing so due to conflicts with parents or guardians. While at the home, those staying in the five beds will be supervised and subjected to counseling and other programs in an effort to restore open lines of healthy communication with parents. The inspiration for the home was several decades in the making for Wilson.

‘I wonder what his mom was thinking, if she knew he was somewhere safe.’

BUDGETS Continued from page A3 District. I look forward to the challenges ahead of being fiscally responsible with the LIPA challenge, as well as keeping Port Jefferson School District intact.” The discussion surrounding the board of education vote in Port Jeff became contentious at times, especially on social media. Much of the angst can be traced to the possibility of decreasing revenue from property taxes as the district — along with Brookhaven Town and Port Jeff Village — work toward a likely settlement in a legal battle with the Long Island Power Authority over the utility’s assessed property tax value on its Port Jeff power plant, which LIPA contends is overassessed. The district gets a large chunk of its operating budget revenue as a result of housing the plant. “I’m thrilled at the turnout,” Tidwell said. “I’m thrilled that the budget was passed, and I’m ready to move forward. Right now, I just want to heal the division in our community and I’ll work together to figure out how we move forward.”

SCHOOL NEWS Terryville Road Elementary School

Edna Louise Spear Elementary School

DENIZ YILDIRIM PJSD

Honored with art

Terryville Road Elementary School’s art teacher, Susan Spano, has put together what the district called “a stunning art show that will absolutely lift anyone lucky enough to see it.” Spano was inspired by Kelsey Montague, an artist who “creates wild and whimsical large-scale murals that allow passersby to step into them, become part of the art and share it with the world with the hashtag #whatliftsyou,” the teacher said. Each grade level studied an artist and their work and created their own version. Third-graders warmed observers hearts with paintings and collages of “spring baby birds in nests and flowers,” and fourth-grade artists created “unique and noble bird portraits” inspired by Peter Cromer. The collection also includ-

ed Van Gogh-inspired ”Wheat Field With Crows” paintings and “Bird on a Branch” paintings by talented fifth-grade students. This aerial art show was dedicated to Terryville’s principal April Victor, pictured above on the right, who will retire at the end of this school year. As a tribute, the main lobby now displays a stunning pair of wings that were put together using over 500 feathers decorated by teachers and students. Visitors can stand in front of the mural and take a one of a kind picture and then share it on social media with the suggested hashtag #MrsVictorGivesUsWings. “It is Terryville’s way of thanking their principal for inspiring and giving her teachers and students wings,” a district press release said. — DENIZ YILDIRIM

Musicians in the making

Third-grade students at Edna Louise Spear Elementary School in the Port Jefferson School District experienced an informative lesson on string, brass and woodwind instruments at the school’s recent instrumental recruitment meeting. From the soft vibrations of a violin to the baritone-voiced euphonium, the students were introduced to the instruments by the current fourth-graders, who were eager to demonstrate the instrument they each play. The annual event is a collaborative effort of Vanessa Salzman, the fourth-

through sixth-grade orchestra teacher who organizes the event, and band teacher Mark Abbonizio, pictured above, who runs the meeting with the students. “Our annual recruitment events are an exciting time to introduce the incoming fourthgraders to all the instruments we teach at the elementary school,” Salzman said. “Listening and watching demonstrations by their peers not only showcases the talents of our current musicians, but is a powerful and effective tool to inspire our newest members of the band and orchestra.”

PERSPECTIVES

Withdrawal from deal gets Iran closer to nuclear weapons Your turn

BY JACK HARRINGTON

The 2015 international accord known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and colloquially as the Iran Deal, brought the United States and the world closer to the goal of a nuclear weapons-free Iran than any other initiative since 1979. The agreement negotiated with the U.S., the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia and China was the re-

sult of principled and tough American-led diplomacy. After recertifying Iranian compliance with the deal on multiple occasions, the Republican Trump administration formally announced May 8 the U.S. was withdrawing from the JCPOA to the consternation of many of our closest allies. The president’s decision is shortsighted. The administration’s argument in part against the deal — an argument that began as campaign rhetoric and crystallized into policy — is that the JCPOA does not address other bad acts by the Iranian regime. Everyone is aware that the Iranian government has been responsible for destabilizing the Middle East, sponsoring terrorist organizations and repressing human rights. However, that was not the purpose of the Iranian nuclear deal. Iran’s dark history is exactly why the Obama administration prioritized preventing the Iranian regime from developing nuclear weapons. This has been and must continue to be our primary objective. In its short existence, the JCPOA has seen 17,000 centrifuges and 95 percent of Iran’s highly enriched uranium stockpile removed and Iran’s only plutonium reactor disabled, according to the Arms Control Association, a national nonpartisan organization. Meanwhile, the deal has ensured that the best nuclear inspectors in the world watch Iran’s entire supply chain — from the mines to the

laboratories — to ensure the Iranian regime cannot produce or transport such weapons under the radar. All of this was achieved because the U.S. rallied allies and other partners to the negotiating table, and it was done without firing a shot. If the deal collapses, Iran will have no limits or inspectors on their nuclear program, meaning they could rush for a bomb, in turn setting us on a path for another incredibly destructive conflict in the Middle East. The Iran Deal is not built on trust, but rather verification. The International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.S. intelligence community and leading military figures in the Trump administration — including Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford — have all at various times assessed that Iran remained in compliance and was not building a nuclear weapon. We have other tools in our toolbox, including sanctions within the parameters of the JCPOA, to counter Iran’s missile programs and terrorism sponsorship. The United States should not abandon the JCPOA’s progress toward full denuclearization because it doesn’t simultaneously cure all other ills. At a broader level, the decision to withdraw from the JCPOA is the latest example of an administration retreating from its position of global leadership. We continue to alienate our staunchest allies and are sending a terrible signal to other bad

actors —including North Korea — about the value of American leadership and diplomacy. We will also create the space for China and Russia to profit diplomatically and economically by engaging with Iran if we will not. Campaign rhetoric notwithstanding, America cannot bomb away a country’s understanding of nuclear science. We owe it not only to the international community but also the proud men and women of our own armed forces to exhaust every diplomatic action before going to war. This is certainly true given that the JCPOA has yielded more progress than any other initiative to date. In response to President Trump’s announcement, President Obama (D) said, “In a democracy, there will always be changes in policies and priorities from one administration to the next.” Obama’s statement continued: “But the consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to risks eroding America’s credibility, and puts us at odds with the world’s major powers.” President Obama is correct: America must remain in and improve, where possible, the Iran Deal. Jonathan “Jack” Harrington is an attorney, a fellow at the Truman National Security Project, a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy Reserve, and former Democratic Party nominee for Brookhaven Town supervisor. He lives in Stony Brook. The views expressed are the author’s alone, and do not represent those of the U.S. Department of Defense.

Building a better Suffolk through infrastructure investment Suffolk County families have seen tough economic times in recent decades, with the erosion of our middle class and the disappearance of good-paying jobs. The lack of industry, scarcity of high-quality jobs, and high cost of real estate force too many of our young people and families to move out of the county. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can create a future where people want to move to Suffolk for its high quality of life, not away from it. As an entrepreneur and businessman with 30 years of experience building and growing businesses, I know that neither government nor private industry will solve these problems alone. We must forge private-public partnerships and make critical investments to redevelop our economy. Imagine a Suffolk County that’s economically revitalized with a modernized infrastructure. Improving the Long Island Rail Road, rebuilding our highways and bridges, modernizing our sewer and septic systems, and investing in renewable energy sources are key infrastructure investments we can make to drive economic opportunity in the county. The LIRR is vital to Suffolk County and it must be modernized and improved. We should invest in improving LIRR signal systems that will reduce the delays that plague commuters. We also need more tracks so that the North and South forks can have

fuller service. Electrifying the LIRR in Suf- infrastructure will make us more efficient folk will mean more connectivity and faster, and make it less expensive to do business, more reliable service.

costs today, but we do have windy coasts and lots of sun. These natural assets give us the opportunity to invest in the fastest growing energy source — wind power, both onshore and offshore. By investing in wind, as well as solar energy, we will not only be investing in Suffolk manufacturing and construction jobs to build and install turbines, but also driving down residents’ energy prices, all while helping the environment. The more we reduce energy costs, the more sense it will make for manufacturing firms to operate in the county. Improving LIRR, rebuilding our roads and bridges, cleaning up our waste systems and investing in renewable energy will not only improve our quality of life and improve our economy, but also will provide well-paid union jobs to Suffolk County workers. These projects require a combination of federal, state and county, and often town, cooperation and funding. But working together, we can rebuild our infrastructure. This future, with infrastructure investment and economic growth, can be a reality. Together, we can actually make bold, progressive ideas to invest in our infrastructure and grow our economy. Perry Gershon is an East Hampton resident and a Democratic candidate running for Congress to represent New York’s 1st Congressional District.

SPORTS BILL LANDON

Clockwise from left, Comsewogue’s Richie Lacalandra moves up the field with the ball; Zach Gagnon tries to hold back Mount Sinai’s Joey Spallina; Sean Power evades a defeder and powers through midfield; and Karl Lacalandra, Richie’s younger brother, stick checks a Mustang.

Warriors fall in final seconds to Mount Sinai, head to playoffs May 23 BY BILL LANDON Tyler Gatz took home the Division II title for Mount Sinai. With the Mustangs down 3-2 in the final minutes, the freshman midfielder assisted on classmate Brandon Ventarola’s game-tying shot before scoring the go-ahead goal as the buzzer sounded for a 4-3 home win over Comsewogue May 11. The final play called for the ball to end up in the stick of senior JoJo Pirreca, but Gatz said he saw an opportunity he couldn’t pass up. “The play was sideways,” the freshman said. “I saw that they over-pursued me, so I put the stick in my left hand, got top side and just let it go.”

Mount Sinai 4 Comsewogue 3

Mount Sinai was tied with Islip at 12-1 atop the league leaderboard heading into Friday’s game. Comsewogue and Harborfields were tied for second (10-2), but the Tornadoes took down Islip earlier that day (13-7) to leave the Mustangs battling it out for sole possession. “Comsewogue played great defense tonight — they did a great job, so I feel fortunate that we were able to get this win,” Mount Sinai head coach Harold Drumm said. “It’s easy when you win 10-1, but [we were] playing a tough team and things [were] not going our way. Our team showed it had a lot of heart, and that’s what tells you if you have a team or not.” After a scoreless first quarter, Comsewogue senior Anthony Passarella broke the ice, and juniors Chris Wolfe and Sean Kennedy scored next to give the Warriors a 3-0 lead with 4:11 remaining until the halftime break. Known for its stout defense, Comsewogue remained solid until eighth-grader Joseph Spallina’s solo shot rocked the back of the cage to end of the quarter. Not wanting his age to be paired with inexperience, the team’s leading scorer proved his prowess when he struck again four minutes into the third on an assist from junior Dominic Boscarino to pull his team within one, 3-2. “When we were down 3-1 we really weren’t moving the ball,” said Spallina, who ranks seventh among all Suffolk scorers with 76 points on 34 goals and 42 assists. Spallina said his team wanted to take it slow, thinking back to the lone loss of the season, a 10-9 defeat at the hands of Islip April 11, and wanted to redeem that loss by taking sole possession of the division crown.

Comsewogue went a man down on three separate occasions and Mount Sinai was unable to capitalize. The tables turned when Spallina was flagged for an infraction and served a one-minute penalty to close out the third, and his team again went a man down with under three minutes left in the fourth, but Comsewogue couldn’t find the net. “We had one devastating loss against a really good team,” Spallina said of the loss to Islip. “So we were thinking, ‘Just make one stop at a time.’” Mount Sinai gained possession with less than 40 seconds left and moved the ball around the cage to tick time off, allowing for one last shot before a looming overtime period, which is when Gatz made his move.

“They play hard, they’re very well coached,” Drumm said of Comsewogue. “We know they have great athletes on the field and we knew we had to tighten up a little in the crease, and even down 3-1 we [knew we’d have] opportunities on offense. We needed to keep believing, so I just tried to stay the course.” Mount Sinai, which earned the No. 1 seed with the win, will host the winner of Thursday’s matchup between No. 4 ShorehamWading River and No. 5 Sayville in the Class C semifinals May 23 at 4 p.m. Comsewogue, the No. 2 seed, will compete in the Class B semifinals, hosting the winner of the No. 3 East Islip and No. 6 Half Hollow Hills West game May 23 at 4 p.m.

OPINION Editorial

Letters to the editor METO/CREATIVE CONNECTIONS

Zeldin votes against working families On April 12, Congressman Lee Zeldin voted for the so-called balanced budget amendment, a bill that sought to make massive cuts to Medicare, federal student loans and agriculture subsidies. The bill failed to pass the House, largely on party lines. But the cruelty of trying to balance a budget by gutting the social safety net cannot be ignored, particularly after a Republican tax cut for wealthiest Americans, that added over $1 trillion to our nation’s debt, was passed just months ago. This vote against working families is part of a larger pattern

in Lee Zeldin’s voting record. In 2017, he voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, even though the Ryan/Trump plan would cause 67,000 of his constituents to lose their health insurance. Zeldin also voted for the so-called Financial Choice Act, which rolled back many of the Dodd-Frank protections, a slap in the face to the hundreds of thousands of Long Islanders hurt by the fiscal irresponsibility that led to the Great Recession. Additionally, Zeldin voted for the budget resolution that paved the way for the Republican tax cut that will cause Long Islanders to lose their

state and local tax deductions. In reviewing Congressman Zeldin’s record, it is unclear who he is working for. Perhaps he’s doing the bidding of his wealthy donors, Robert and Rebekah Mercer. Perhaps he is angling for a job in the revolving door of the chaotic Trump administration. Whatever his intent, it’s clear that Lee Zeldin is not working for the constituents of this district. I look forward to getting out to vote for his opponent and repealing and replacing Congressman Lee Zeldin Nov. 6.

As a pediatrician, I feel compelled to speak out against the proposed cuts to SNAP in the farm bill, H.R.2, which is currently up for a vote in the House. SNAP is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. It is the most effective domestic U.S. hunger safety net program and nearly half of its recipients are children. Over one million children in New York state receive benefits from SNAP. Cuts to SNAP will adversely affect children in the nearly 22,000 households with children that participate in the program right

here on Long Island. SNAP delivers critical support to vulnerable families to ensure that they can put food on the table. Children who live in households that are food insecure are likely to be sick more often, recover from illness more slowly and be hospitalized more frequently. Lack of adequate healthy food can impair a child’s ability to perform well in school and can lead to higher levels of behavioral and emotional problems from preschool to adolescence. SNAP is reauthorized under

the farm bill, legislation that renews federal agriculture, trade and nutrition programs. At present, SNAP benefits are not enough to provide funding with the resources to obtain an adequate healthy diet, and they should not be cut further. No child should have to struggle with hunger and food insecurity in our country. SNAP serves as a critical support for the health and well-being of children, and its funding should not be cut in the farm bill.

The power of sharing opinions the right way SNAP important to children’s health It would behoove us all to be active instead of passive government participants. As we continue to use social media as a way of communication, its use as a focal point of complaints and criticism continues to soar. In high school, participation in government classes is part of the core curriculum, designed to focus on citizenship and what it means to take part in a democracy. The culmination of a student’s social studies experience should ready him or her to apply the content-rich study of contemporary and historic public issues to the current ones, and increase awareness of the rights and responsibilities of a United States citizen. These goals are laid out clearly by the U.S. Department of Education. Just as the course is geared to engage students in the analysis of public policies and issues and encourage their practice of freedom of speech to voice opinions or ask critical questions to those in administrative or political power, we implore every nonstudent to do the same. Whether it’s disapproval about how a district is readying itself for a potential loss in revenue to fund programs in a budget, or the concern of an increase in the homeless population in a given area, civic engagement goes far beyond complaining in a Facebook post. Elected officials take office for the stated purpose of representing the interests of a constituency. Before opening Facebook, write a letter or an email to your government representative, school superintendent or board of education president, or attend a meeting to speak during public comment. Elected officials want their phones and email accounts buzzing with issues important to people they represent. That’s why they decide to serve, or at least it should be. Recently, when residents were concerned about the construction of a water fountain at a new dog park in Selden, many took to a private Facebook page to complain and tagged Brookhaven Town Councilman Kevin LaValle (R-Selden) in their posts. Others gathered together and attended a town board meeting to make their sentiments heard. This active participation not only gets a message across in a more mature manner, but it also can create change. With these complaints and asked questions, they were able to place the fountain in an appropriate location inside the dog park and ensure the completion of the project included a rock bed to cover the fountain’s drain. In Huntington Town, residents have joined together to create banners, post signs and send out mailers to let neighbors know of public hearings regarding a 486,380-square-foot commercial project. The group, in opposition to the project, is attempting to strengthen its unified front with more bodies. These cases prove participation in government matters. Our Founding Fathers established this government to protect people’s basic rights and create order. If someone feels or believes he or she has an opinion that should be heard, or feels their basic rights are being threatened, engagement in democracy needs to happen beyond feverish typing across a keyboard behind a computer screen.

Trump’s motivations, enablers President Trump’s motivation for many of his policies is his animus toward the previous president, Barack Obama: his opposition to Obamacare and the Iranian arms deal. Also encouraging the president are his recent choices of Pompeo for secretary of state and Bolton as assistant to the president for national security

affairs who share his hawkish views. Then there is his enabling legal adviser Giuliani who has put himself center stage in the news cycle. Giuliani on Fox News with Sean Hannity stated that the F.B.I. acted like storm troopers, like the Nazis in the 1930s and 1940s. The next day our Twitter president changed his story

about Stormy Daniels regarding the $130,000 payment to her, so that she would not tell the press about the affair. This gift was given a few days before the 2016 election. Didn’t this violate campaign finance laws and was it not a cover-up of his questionable behavior?

Remember dad on his day, too Thank you for focusing on and honoring mothers in the May 10 editorial. It’s a most important role that cannot be filled by anyone who makes anything less than a wholehearted, time-consuming, self-sacrificing commitment to another developing and needy

human being. I look forward to an equally edifying Father’s Day issue acknowledging the vital role that has been diminished, but never adequately replaced, by laws, welfare, programs and more, induced and aggravated by a general moral breakdown

and abdication of personal responsibility, which have eviscerated the patriarchal provider and protector of the family and strength of the nation.

Scientists use signs to save lives

W

hat do the signs tell us? In Hawaii, numerous small earthquakes caused parts of Big Island to shake. Geologists, who monitor the islands regularly, warned of a pending volcanic eruption. They were right, clearing people away from lava flows. How did they know? It’s a combination of history and science. Researchers in the area point to specific signs that are reflections of patterns that have developed in past years. The small earthquakes, like the By Daniel Dunaief feel of the ground trembling as a herd of elephants is approaching in the Serengeti, suggest the movement of magma underneath the ground. Higher volumes of lava flows could come later on, as in 1955 and 1960, say USGS scientists in the archipelago.

D. None of the above

The science involves regular monitoring of events, looking for evidence of what’s going on below the surface. “Hopefully we’ll get smart enough that we can see [tremors] coming or at least be able to use that as a proxy for having people on the ground watching these things,” Tina Neal, scientist-in-charge at USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, explained to KHON2 News in Honolulu. People look for signs in everything they do, hoping to learn from history and to use whatever evidence is available to make predictions and react accordingly. Your doctor does it during your annual physical, monitoring your blood chemistry, checking your heart and lungs, and asking basic questions about your lifestyle. Scientists around Long Island are involved in a broad range of studies. Geneticists, for example, try to see what the sequence of base pairs might mean for you. Their information, like the data the geologists gather in Hawaii, doesn’t indicate exactly what will happen and when, but it can suggest developments that might affect you.

Cancer researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Stony Brook University are using tools like the gene editing system called CRISPR to see how changing the genetic code affects the course of development or the pathway for a disease. Gene editing can help localize the regions responsible for the equivalent of destructive events in our own bodies, showing where they are and what sequences cause progression. Scientists, often working six or seven days a week, push the frontiers of our ability to make sense of whatever signs they collect. Once they gather that information, they can use it to help create more accurate diagnoses and to develop therapies that have individualized benefits. Indeed, not all breast cancers are the same, which means that not all treatments will have the same effect. Some cancers will respond to one type of therapy, while others will barely react to the same treatment. Fundamental, or basic, research is critical to the understanding of translational challenges like treating Alzheimer’s patients or curing potentially deadly fungal infections.

Indeed, most scientists who “discover” a treatment will recognize the seminal studies that helped them finish a job started years — and in some cases decades — before they developed cures. Treatments often start long before the clinical stages, when scientists want to know how or why something happens. The pursuit of knowledge for its own sake can lead to unexpected and important benefits. Outside the realm of medicine, researchers on Long Island are working on areas like understanding the climate and weather, and the effect on energy production. Numerous scientists at SBU and Brookhaven National Laboratory study the climate, hoping to understand how one of the most problematic parts of predicting the weather — clouds — affects what could happen tomorrow or in the next decade. The research all these scientists do helps us live longer and better lives, offering us early warnings of developing possibilities. Scientists not only interpret what the signs tell us, but can also help us figure out the right signs to study.

person’s life. Now we are in the time of Edwardian England, and the person who overhears the conversation and offers herself up for self-improvement is Eliza Doolittle. A Cockney flower girl in Piccadilly Circus, she is both terrified of what is to come and palpably ambitious, insisting that while she is a “good girl,” not looking for anything carnal, she desperately wants to learn. So Higgins takes her into his elegant home and professorial life and works intensely with her in his laboratory for months while Pickering looks on and offers help wherever he is needed — after being assured by Higgins that there will not be any hanky-panky involved. Higgins vehemently asserts to Pickering that he is not interested in emotional relationships. The experiment between the high-born cerebral bachelor and the “guttersnipe” pupil thus begins. Will Higgins succeed and win the bet? We know Eliza will succeed, even as we watch her anguished attempts to learn what Higgins is working so hard to teach. There are testing moments for

her progress and teaching opportunities that include a riotously funny visit on opening day to Ascot Racecourse. Fun is poked unmercifully at the pretensions of the upper classes. Finally, the big test arrives, a ball where Eliza is going to be introduced to and judged by those swells assembled. She, of course, pulls it off and is thought to be of Hungarian royal blood. But is she congratulated? Well, you have to go see the play. I’m not about to spoil the ending for those unfamiliar with the plot. But her triumph is not the point. Her future is. What is to become of this person who has transcended her class, with its freedoms, grime and penury notwithstanding, and is now locked into the bourgeois rules for women in an ossified society? Is she to become Higgins’ mistress? And what about him? She has now awakened emotions in him that he has long walled off from his daily life. Will he ask her to marry him? He, too, has been transformed. The answer is that 1956 was quite different to 2018. Can you guess?

How the fair lady has changed

L

ucky me, our Mother’s Day celebration this year included a trip into New York City to see “My Fair Lady.” Now this show, which I first saw on Broadway in 1956 just after it was launched, was a trip down memory lane for me. It was also a bellwether for how much our culture has changed. At the time of its premiere 62 years ago, the By Leah S. Dunaief play was the “Hamilton” of its time, creating the adulation and frenzied response for tickets that we are familiar with today. “My Fair Lady” was a different sort of musical for its many-layered themes and clever, witty lyrics. It stood apart from the golden era of Rodgers and Hammerstein marvels like “South

Between you and me

Pacific” and “Oklahoma!” that had preceded it. This wasn’t in the mold of a romantic musical but rather one about personal transformation and English class rigidity. The play, by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, had as its inspiration from the ancient world, Ovid’s “Metamorphoses,” and more recently George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion.” This is the story of a sculptor, talented but alone, who carves a beautiful woman out of stone and then falls in love with her. He prays to Venus to bring her to life, and the goddess of love hears him. The statue becomes flesh and blood beneath his hands, and what comes next is the essence of the story. In the Lerner and Loewe iteration, two high society phoneticians named Henry Higgins and retired army Col. Hugh Pickering make a bet over whether the way English people speak — their accents — lock them into their class and station for their entire lives. Higgins feels that if he can teach a low-born pupil to speak the King’s English, he can change that
