Port Jefferson Village is considering changing its code to make jaywalking illegal.

By AlEx PEtroski Crossing the street in Port Jefferson Village may soon be a ticket-able offense. During a village board meeting Aug. 7, a public hearing was held to discuss amending the village code to include language prohibiting jaywalking on Port Jeff streets. “No person shall, at street intersections where traffic is controlled by traffic control signals or by police or public safety officers, cross the street against a red, ‘stop’ or ‘don’t walk’ sign or signal, nor cross at any place except in a marked crosswalk, nor disobey the lawful command of a police or public safety officer,” the proposed addition to the code said. Offenders would be written a summons to appear in village court, and penalties for violating the code would be assessed at the discretion of the court based on circumstances. Repeat offenders or offenders whose violation results in a car crash would be given harsher fines, with a maximum possible fine of $2,000. Initially the code change was slated to be for the entirety of Port Jeff Village, but the proposed language in the code inspired questions from members of the public and the board about crossing streets like East Broadway and Highlands Boulevard, which have devices that qualify as “traffic control signals” but no crosswalks for miles. The proposed code change was amended during the hearing to limit the jaywalking restriction to commercial districts encompassing Main Street and East Main Street, and near John T. Mather Memorial Hospital where crosswalks already exist. Jaywalking restrictions will not be

enforced on residential streets if the code change is passed by the board. “Throughout the village there’s a 30-mile-per-hour speed limit,” village Code Enforcement Chief Wally Tomaszewski said during the hearing. “On Main Street there are hundreds of people a day that cross outside of the crosswalks. We have so many accidents. We have so many people that are hit by cars, people pushing off of cars, and people actually jump out in front of cars. We have children in cars that the people jam on the brakes and the kids go flying up against the dashboard and the windshield.” Trustee and Deputy Mayor Larry LaPointe was among those in favor of the law applying to only commercial areas. Trustee Bruce Miller was against the change altogether. “I guess I’m just a bit of a libertarian, more free range than chasing people because they didn’t cross at a crosswalk or they didn’t wait for a signal, or maybe there’s nothing to wait for,” he said. “I’m not too enthusiastic about jaywalking enforcement.” Village Mayor Margot Garant spoke in favor of the proposal. “I see people darting across the street all of the time,” she said. “At night they’re darting from Schaffer’s to run across the street — it’s so dangerous.” Garant added she had previously asked the New York State Department of Transportation for a crosswalk to be added in front of Village Hall, and she planned to speak to State Sen. Ken LaValle (R-Port Jefferson) about the matter again. She also assured concerned residents that proper signage would be installed warning pedestrians about the crackdown on jaywalking.


Village mulls over cracking down on jaywalking in commercial districts



Port Jeff Village Uptown Funk project could get influx of cash By Kevin Redding With a master plan in place to breathe new life into the area, Port Jefferson Village is pushing for millions in state funds to give some long overdue Uptown Funk to residents. The village, in an effort to get moving on much discussed upper Port Jefferson revitalization, has recently applied for a combined state grant of $9.46 million through the Consolidated Funding Application — $7.06 million from Local Waterfront Revitalization Program and $2.4 million from Empire State Development. Initially hoping to secure up to $10.5 million through New York State’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative, Port Jeff lost out on that grant last week when Hicksville officials received the funds to renovate and revitalized their own downtown area. However, Port Jefferson village officials applied for funding through the state’s Consolidated Funding Application so they could still get agency funding individually by project for several desired initiatives in the area surrounding the Long Island Rail Road station in what’s commonly called upper Port. If awarded, the funds will contribute to the village’s face-lifts along the intersection of Perry Street and Main Street and about a block north of the train station. The multiphased project known as Uptown Funk has been building momentum since 2014 and aims to transform blighted properties, better connect residents to work,

Blighted buildings and empty storefronts in upper Port Jefferson could soon be addressed through various grants. make the streets more walkable and vibrant and provide an overall better place to live, especially for younger residents, according to Village Mayor Margot Garant. At the beginning of 2017, the village secured $500,000 from Empire State Development through Restore New York Communities Initiative to help demolish a blighted building, and a grant of $250,000 from Suffolk County as part of its Jumpstart program for transitbased improvements around the train station. Garant said the latest ask for millions of dollars is for good reason. The pending grant

is considerably more money than the village has received in the past, though the mayor said she feels it is necessary due to a drastic change in Port Jefferson’s marketplace. “[Rail] Realty built 76 brand new apartment units last year that got rented out in lickity split time — housing is desperately needed,” Garant said in a phone interview. “We only put in for $500,000 last year because we weren’t ready. Now we are.” The mayor said among those who will benefit from the project are Stony Brook University students, who are just a train ride away.

“Those people need housing, those students need a place to be, they need a sense of community,” she said. “We’re ready with shovel in the ground projects and I’m hoping we get a piece of the pie. I need the state to recognize that these projects are ready to go.” On the long list of projects in the upper Port master plan, Garant said, are new gateways, parking lot renovations, major streetscape improvements, blight studies and the implementation of new sidewalks and streetlights. Many of these are currently underway using the previously awarded funds. “Whatever they give me, I’m going to put to work,” Garant said. “One of the reasons I decided to run again for my fifth term was I wanted to see the planning we’ve done, the money we’ve spent and the effort the community has put into planning this come to fruition. We’re right on the cusp of that.” The village’s grant writing manager Nicole Christian, of HB Solutions LLC, said all the village’s projects aligned with the requirement set by the region, and she said she believes the village stands a good chance of at least getting partial funding. “I think Uptown Funk is going to skyrocket this village through its stratosphere,” Christian said. “It’s a destination for young people, families, tourists, I think it’s a fantastic investment for the community. And I think the state knows that too.” She said the application is currently under agency review and they should have an answer by November.

A barge used by Northville Industries in Port Jefferson Harbor.

File photo

By Alex PetroskI A 2010 “legislative oversight” caused a stir between Port Jefferson Village and an oil company with decades-old roots in the community, though the village announced Aug. 7 during a public meeting the case has been settled. As part of the settlement, with Northville Industries, a petroleum storage, distribution and wholesale company with property on the shores of Port Jefferson Harbor, the village agreed to amend a previously deleted section of its code. The village held a public hearing to discuss changes to permitted uses of marina waterfront-zoned parcels during the Aug. 7 meeting. In 1976, the zone where Northville’s dock facility on Beach Street in Port Jeff was housed, and continues to be, was changed from an industrial to a marina waterfront. The change made Northville’s Port Jeff facility, which is used to take in petroleum deliveries by ship or barge that are then transported around Long Island, nonconforming to the village code. During the hearing, Village Attorney Brian Egan explained that the change was fought up to the New York State Supreme Court in 1976, and the site was granted conditional uses within the MW district, which allowed their decades-old operation to continue functioning. In 2010 the village, to create multiple marina waterfront districts identified as MW-1, MW-2 and MW-3 drafted new legislation. The Northville property is located within MW-1. That legislation identified several permitted uses within marina waterfront districts, including recreational marinas, boat launching facilities, boat storage facilities, charter fishing boat operations, yacht clubs, restaurants and several others. However, it eliminated permitted conditional use of the space for “petroleum products and biofuels, marine terminal and pipeline facilities,” rendering the Northville facility noncompliant with the village code. Northville filed a lawsuit against the village in 2011. Egan said during the hearing the village had reached a settlement with Northville, and a stipulation of the suit was the code amendment. “What this is really trying to do is, because

we settled it I can say this, I would probably say it was a legislative mistake in 2010 to have eliminated a use that was already there and probably will continue forever,” he said. During a phone interview after the meeting Egan walked back “mistake” and instead classified it as a “legislative oversight.” “It’s been there forever, it will continue forever. What Northville said was, ‘Hey guys, we’re here. We were here even before this code was drafted. We’ve had it since 1976, just at least restore to us what you originally had in there before you took it out in 2010.’” Northville’s is not the only property within the MW-1 district, which is the only one of the marina waterfront districts being granted conditional use pertaining to petroleum or biofuel related uses. So several village residents spoke out during the hearing with concerns that other companies might try to use property within the zone for similar purposes. Egan said the conditional-use status would leave any future proposals of that nature up to the village planning board to approve. “Our history of this village is, it’s very difficult to do that,” village resident of Beach Street Michael Mart said during the hearing regarding a planning board denying conditional use on a property. “I’ve only heard of one time that they’ve prohibited a request for a conditional use, so I fear that by passing this, I guess we have to if it’s a settlement, because there’s only one street accessing those properties. For the most part that’s Beach Street. It’s shared by residents and to allow all of these uses to go there in the future, not immediately — I’m thinking far into the future when I’m not even here — that raises a significant zoning issue and a safety issue.” Other members of the public were concerned by the phrase “marine terminal,” which does not have a definition within the village code. Village Mayor Margot Garant asked that a definition of marine terminal be added to the code to avoid unwanted uses from being permitted within the zone. Egan also said an aspect of the amendment would be to create a “residential buffer” on Beach Street to separate Northville’s property and homes on the street. He added the settlement was reached at no additional monetary cost to the village. No vote was held on the amendment.

Top Suffolk Democrat weighs in on the past and future of the party BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSPAPERS.COM As the night progressed Nov. 8, 2016, it steadily became clear that months of data and polls had failed to accurately predict the future. Around midnight, it was no longer in doubt — Donald Trump was going to be the 45th president of the United States, and Democrats had a long road ahead to figure out what went wrong. Both nationally and locally, the time since the shocking 2016 presidential election has served as a period of reflection and resistance for the Democratic Party. Political leaders across the country, like Suffolk County Democratic Committee Chairman Rich Schaffer, were tasked with crafting a new message and understanding the emotion Americans voiced with their votes in November: anger. In an exclusive interview at his North Babylon office, Schaffer weighed in on the platform of the party going forward; what about Trump’s message resonated for Suffolk voters making him the first Republican presidential candidate to win the county since the early 90s; a high profile race for Suffolk’s District Attorney; the two congressional seats up in 2018; his journey in politics since age 11 and much more.

‘I’m trying to make sure I keep saying this: make sure we don’t burn the house down.’

— Rich Schaffer

Local races

The future of the party

Schaffer is in an enviable and high stakes position. The leading Democrat in the county has a blank slate as a platform, while the party tries to rebirth itself from the ashes of 2016. The path forward is whatever Suffolk Democrats choose to make it from here, but choosing wrong could be a major setback. The successes of ultra-progressive candidate Bernie Sanders (D-Vermont) could make a further left-leaning Democratic Party a possibility for the future. However, swinging too far to the left could alienate moderates from both sides of the aisle, similar to the way Trump Republicans are trying to go it alone with little support outside of the base. “I’m trying to make sure I keep saying this: make sure we don’t burn the house down,” Schaffer said of infighting amongst different sects of the party. “Or even I use the line ‘don’t make me pull the car over.’ The kids are arguing in the back and we’re about 50 miles away from the destination and they’re carrying on… I’ll pull the car over and we’re not going anywhere.” Schaffer said he held a meeting in March with about 25 leaders of various activist groups in the hopes of emerging with a unified front. “I brought them all together at our headquarters and I said, ‘look, we all have the same goal — we want to defeat [U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley)] and [U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford)] and we want to defeat Trump,’” Schaffer said. “‘That’s our four-year plan. We all have different reasons why we want to accomplish that goal — your issue might be health care, your issue might be the travel ban, your issue may be you think Trump’s an idiot, you’re concerned about the Supreme Court. Whatever your issue is, we have to put that energy together and see how we can, as best as possible, move in the same direction to ac-

County. I’m never going to question — take a Republican — Leslie Kennedy. I’m never going to question that. I know that nobody wants to have gunfights breaking out and gangs and people overdosing, but can we sit down and figure out how we get it done.” He was careful to relay that the party needs to have a parallel focus in order to smooth over tensions between the two in the current political climate. “I think the message should be that we’re going to oppose Trump and his team on things we believe are hurtful to people,” he said. “And we’re going to support him on things, or compromise with him on issues that are going to deliver results.” A common refrain from Republicans is the everyday voter doesn’t care about “distracting” issues — like the investigation into Russian collusion with the Trump campaign/ administration, palace intrigue stories, the president’s and the president’s Tweets to name a few — they care about what is actually getting done. From that perspective, Democrats Schaffer has come in contact with are in the same boat as Republicans.

Suffolk County Democratic Committee Chairman Rich Schaffer works at his desk in his North Babylon office. complish that.’” The Democratic Party is not in the shambles locally as it might appear nationally, according to Schaffer. The Suffolk County Legislature has had a Democrat majority since 2005. He said he wasn’t a huge fan of the “Better Deal” Democratic rebranding effort released by the party nationally recently, but instead would like to see politicians from both sides of the aisle meet in the middle and compromise on important issues, rather than focusing on branding and slogans. Schaffer described his initial foray into politics as getting swept up in a Democratic wave of support. Living in West Islip, Schaffer had a friend named Jeff, whose older brother Tom Downey was running for the county legislature in 1971. The candidate, who was just 22-years-old at the time, enlisted the help of neighborhood kids, including 11-year-old Schaffer, to pass out fliers for the campaign. “The father, Mr. Downey, says ‘alright you guys, get in the station wagon, we’re going to go deliver these fliers for Tom,’” Schaffer said. Downey was elected, becoming the youngest member of the legislature in its history. In 1987, Schaffer was also elected to the county legislature, and when he was sworn in at age 23 he became the second youngest member. He also currently serves as town supervisor for Babylon and will seek reelection in the fall. Schaffer credited his preparation for office at such a young age to an unusually difficult upbringing. He said his father

abandoned the family when he was 10 years old, and when he was 14, his mother was sent to jail for killing someone while she was driving drunk. His aunt and uncle finished raising him through those difficult times, though he came out the other end more prepared than most for adversity. In 1974, Downey ran for congress again aided by Schaffer and others. He attributed the post-Watergate environment to Downey’s victory as a Democratic candidate. Schaffer said he anticipates a similar wave to impact the 2017 and 2018 elections locally and nationally as a response to all things Trump.

Trump support in the county

Trump’s victory nationally was a surprise, but a Republican winning Suffolk County was a shocker not seen in the last five election cycles. He took home nearly 53 percent of the vote and Suffolk County Republican Committee Chairman John Jay LaValle, who also played an active role in Trump’s campaign, told Times Beacon Record Newspapers during an interview in April the key issues that drove local residents to the polls in support of a first-time politician were the failures of his predecessors to make any inroads on immigration, health care and jobs in Suffolk. Schaffer realized the irony in he and LaValle naming the same few issues as the most important to voters in the county. “Because they’re human issues,” he said. “So that’s what I say, is that I’m never going to question John LaValle’s commitment to wanting to make a better place in Suffolk

Schaffer pointed to the race for Suffolk County District Attorney as a potential indicator of where politics is heading in the county in the near future. He sang the praises of Democrat candidate and current Suffolk County Police Commissioner Tim Sini (D), whom the party has already endorsed. Sini will square off with Ray Perini (R) a criminal lawyer from Huntington, for the seat left open by Tom Spota (D), who will not seek reelection. He also cleared up an issue with Sini’s announcement of his candidacy, which came as a surprise because during his confirmation hearing to become police commissioner before the legislature he said he had no interest in running for DA. Schaffer said at the time Sini was being truthful, he had no intentions of running, but he said Sini felt he had made more progress in his short time as Suffolk’s top cop to make him comfortable seeking a step up. “No secret Kabuki, plan, no conspiracies,” he said. “Nobody said ‘okay we’ll fake them out and tell them you’re not running and then you’ll run.’” LaValle was critical of County Executive Steve Bellone (D) and his management of Suffolk’s finances. The county has a poor credit rating and an ever-growing deficit, though Schaffer defended Bellone and said he’s done an admirable job in a tough position. He also addressed comments LaValle made in April regarding Zeldin, and his claims that “liberal obstructionists,” and not genuine constituents were the ones opposing his policies and protesting his public appearances. LaValle called those constituents “a disgrace.” “Yeah and John should know better also,” Schaffer said. “I’m not ever going to question anyone’s patriotism unless somebody shows me evidence that they’re colluding with a foreign government or they’re doing some terrorist activity.” Schaffer said regardless of where on the political spectrum a given Democrat falls currently, the goal is to find candidates capable of defeating Zeldin and King.

Pollination garden

Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker (DMount Sinai) hosted the grand opening and ribbon cutting of the Suffolk County Educational Native Pollinator Garden at Heritage Park in Mount Sinai. The garden, a pilot program of the Educational Agriculture Support Initiative, includes a variety of native pollinator plants, which demonstrate the aesthetic diversity of Long Island plants while providing a habitat for pollinator species. “The Educational Native Pollinator Garden at Heritage Park will help to educate the community about native plants and the necessity of pollinator species,” Anker said. “Our butterflies and bees are vital to our farming community in Suffolk County. Once we lose these pollinators, we lose our agricultural and environmental sustainability. I would like to thank that Mount Sinai Heritage Trust for providing the space for the garden and the Long Island Native Plant Initiative for donating the plants.” The garden was designed by the Suffolk


County Soil and Water Conservation District. A kiosk was constructed by James DiPersio, an Eagle Scout from Miller Place, who also installed the garden sign donated by Newby Neon Signs in Mount Sinai. “Pollinator gardens are a great addition to parks, government properties and of course the home landscape,” said Brian Smith, executive board member for the Long Island Native Plant Initiative. “Small changes have big rewards for vulnerable species and it gives us humans the opportunity to delight in the presence of butterflies, bees and songbirds.”

Even in the face of great adversity in recent years, Joe always put others first and was a devoted son, brother, husband, father, uncle, cousin, colleague, neighbor and friend. The family received friends July 21 at the Stauffer Funeral Home in Maryland. A reception was held at the funeral home. A funeral Mass was held July 22 at St. Anthony’s Shrine Parish in Emmitsburg, Maryland. Interment at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors will be scheduled at a later date. Donations in memory of Joe may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association and Kline Hospice House in Mt. Airy, Maryland. Expressions of sympathy may be shared with the family at

For his community service project, Maclaine refurbished a reading garden at the Terryville Road Elementary School, which included repairing damaged benches, replacing fencing and planting new flower beds. Phil, for his project, built a set of horseshoe pits at the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks Lodge #2138 in Centereach.

On Aug. 8, three representatives from the Port Jefferson Rotary Club, Archana Gautam, Sharon Brennan and Susan Hanson, performed an annual ritual. They successfully completed a club project by delivering to Vicki Rybak, director for social outreach programs at Infant Jesus R.C. Church’s Open Cupboard, 140 school backpacks as well as an ample supply of back-to-school necessities including pencils, notebooks, glue, crayons, markers, rulers, scissors and composition books. These donations are destined for the

youth clientele of The Open Cupboard. Practicing the Rotary motto, “Service Above Self,” the Port Jeff Rotarians are pleased to perform a number of other services for The Open Cupboard throughout the year, including the delivery of monthly member donations of food and necessities to the food pantry, delivery of donated goods by generous community members via periodic Stuff-A-Van Events held at the Mount Sinai King Kullen store and provision of hundreds of wrapped gifts at Christmas time for children in needy families served by The Open Cupboard.



Attorney, Navy reservist running for supervisor Concerned about the direction of Brookhaven in recent years, Stony Brook attorney and U.S. Navy reservist Jack Harrington (D) has decided to take his first step into politics to push a new vision — one he hopes will make him the town’s top leader this fall. Harrington, 34, who grew up in Sound Beach and was a student in the Miller Place school district before graduating from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service and Yale Law School, is the official nominee of the Democratic, Working Families, and Women’s Equality parties. In November, he will run against Town Supervisor Ed Romaine (R), who has held the position since 2012 and is pursuing his third term at the helm. As the father of a 2-year-old son, with another child on the way with his wife Sarah, Harrington said his main motivation to run was to make sure his kids have as many opportunities to succeed as he had growing up in the town in the 1980s and 90s. But, Harrington expressed, a lot has changed in Suffolk County since then, and not for the better.

“It’s getting harder and harder for middle class families to survive in this area and I think local government plays a large role in that,” Harrington said. Since deciding to run in May, he spends two hours a day going door-to-door to speak with residents about issues they have. “It’s getting increasingly difficult to find a job and increasingly difficult to enter the property market,” he said. “I’m worried that if we don’t elect leaders that have a long-term vision for what Brookhaven should look like, when my son graduates college and if he decides he wants to stay in the town, he’s not going to have the means to do so.” The candidate said he wants to grow Brookhaven’s economy by promoting transit-oriented development, high-tech corridors and vibrant downtowns in line with Patchogue Village and the planned revitalization project in Port Jefferson Station. According to Harrington, Suffolk County should be utilizing its research hubs like Brookhaven National Lab and Stony Brook University, where he has taught as an adjunct professor of business, to bring back jobs.

Brookhaven Town Supervisor candidate Jack Harrington. He also wants to create alternative housing options for young people and seniors, and help make Town Hall a better overall partner to local businesses and residents by cutting through the “bureaucratic red tape” many have complained to him about. “If I’m elected, one of the first things I want to do is evaluate every program, office, person in Town Hall that interacts with businesses in any shape or form and ask a very simple question: how can we make these interactions easier? How can we reduce wait times?” Harrington said. “I want

to ensure that every resident in Brookhaven has an ironclad belief that their government is working on behalf of their interest and their interest alone.” He said he plans on releasing a package of tough ethics and contracting reforms that include term limits, a database for residents to see exactly where their taxpayer dollars are going, and public financial disclosures of elected officials. Harrington commended the town on its initiatives to preserve open space, and made it clear he is actively running, but not waging a personal campaign against Romaine, who was unable to be reached for comment. Raised by a public school teacher and a restaurateur, Harrington grew up valuing education and hard work. Upon receiving a full academic scholarship to Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, he attended University of St Andrews in Scotland, where he received a bachelor’s degree in international relations, and managed initiatives at The Center for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence. He then pursued international security studies at Georgetown University. After taking time to work in Washington, D.C. as a counter-

terrorism and intelligence analyst, he began studying law at Yale, from which he graduated in 2010. In between passing the New York State bar examination and entering private practice in Stony Brook, Harrington interned for President Barack Obama (D) in the White House Counsel’s Office — an experience he said was remarkable. “The hours were long, but they’re gratifying,” he said, “and if you don’t get chills walking into the Roosevelt Room for the staff meeting five feet from the Oval Office, then you might have other problems.” When he and his wife moved back to Long Island to settle down, Harrington decided to join the Navy Reserve, serving for almost four years, and become locally active. “He has a real dedication and commitment to his community,” said Lillian Clayman, chairwoman of the Brookhaven Town Democratic Committee, which is where she first met Harrington. “He cares deeply about his family and he’s very conscious of his role as husband and father, and is active in his church. I had approached him and asked if he considered running for office because he’s just the kind of quality young person that Brookhaven needs. I think he’s going to win.”

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

their family decided to use their love of sailing as a form of therapy to help veterans, starting the nonprofit in 2013. In 2015 the group hosted its first Let’s Take a Veteran Sailing day which gathered 90 veterans to sail on a fleet of around 30 boats. The event also honored Ryan James Day, a U.S. Army Ranger veteran who committed suicide in 2014 at the age of 21. His mother, father and two brothers attended the event and after a speech in remembrance of him, Ryan’s father Jim Day announced he would be giving $5,000 to Sail Ahead from the Ryan Day Memorial Fund. This was the first time sailing for many veterans. “We just found out about it two weeks ago, so we immediately signed up for it,” veteran and Port Jefferson resident Scott Roberts said. He and 25 other veterans who attended were members of nonprofit Samaritan Village that has programs to support veterans. “This is my first time being on a sailboat along with these guys, it’s very interesting, and it’s very well put together.” veteran and Samaritan Village member Kevin Troope said. Fredrick Hodges, a social worker for Samaritan Village veteran programs said one of the hardest things for veterans is being sociable once they are out of the service. “One of the key pieces is getting the social part right,” Hodges said. “Once they are out [of the service] they might not know how to network. They have to have a balanced existence.” As each boat pulled its flags up the mast, they also raised a flag with the number 219 sewn onto it. The Department of Veterans Affairs released a study that said on average 22 veterans commit suicide each day, meaning every 10 days a full U.S. Marine Corps company, 220 men and women, is lost at home from suicide. The number 219 signifies the hope that one less veteran will die and be saved through building bonds with people and fellow veterans. “There’s a camaraderie to this, and something that veterans need is a calming effect.” Humphrey said. “When you see someone that you started out something with you’re at ease, immediately. Because this can be a very overwhelming environment. When we see each other, we gravitate towards each other.”

Clockwise from left, anna radzinsky, co-owner of The Barn; Patty lutz, manager of Fetch Doggy Boutique & Bakery; and Susan rodgers, owner of Susan rodgers Designs, are three of many women running out-of-the-ordinary shops on east Main Street in Port Jefferson.

A street in Port Jeff has become a haven for the offbeat and unique By Kyle Barr As it does every day in the summer, the Bridgeport to Port Jefferson ferry lowers its huge drawbridge door to reveal a host of cars growling like they are about to stampede into the town. Instead, they file out one by one. Every car is greeted with Port Jefferson’s Main Street and its stores lined up on both sides of the road like a buffet. Unknown to many tourists though, only a few yards from the ferry dock and Main Street, stores offer a whole host of out-of-the-ordinary services from spiritual crystals to handmade jewelry. Almost all the stores on East Main Street are owned or operated by women, and they have developed a communal sense of offbeat character. Most of the owners believe it’s what keeps them alive.

“If they want to be successful on East Main Street they have to be different and unique,” owner of Pattern Finders & Stacy’s Finds on East Main Street Stacy Davidson said during an interview. “I think at this point the stores we have now, I can’t see any of us having a problem.” Davidson has owned Pattern Finders for 23 years, and in that time she had to reinvent herself to keep up with the times. Now her store is a boutique that sells different and unique sets of clothing, dresses, jewelry and other home items. Many of the stores on East Main host classes inspired by what they sell. The Knitting Cove, owned by Toni Andersen and her partner Barry Burns, is one of those stores. Along with the specialty yarn offered in the shop, the store also hosts classes for experienced and beginner knitters

or “knit-alongs” where customers all try to complete a design using whatever choices of yarn they want. Breathe Inspiring Gifts sells a number of spiritual items, such as crystals, minerals, tarot cards, incense, oils and many others. A door in the shop empties into another large room where owner Jena Turner does meditation and yoga sessions every day of the week. “Some people don’t even know this street exists — isn’t that crazy?” Turner said. “I love it, I couldn’t see myself anywhere else. Main Street gets more foot traffic because there are more tourists who know of it, but there are a lot more Long Islanders aware of East Main Street.” One consistent aspect of daily life East Main Street stores face is they do not depend nearly as much on tourists as they do on Long Islanders, specifically the regular customers that they come to know well. Joann Maguire, the owner of Max & Millie Women’s Fashion boutique on East Main sees her store as dedicated to her regular customers. In the 13 years she’s owned the store, she said she has learned regulars keep her in business. “Most of my customers are local residents and what I mean by that is from the Commack area or the Hamptons,” she said. “They come out here for dinner and then they find me. And then they become regulars. I’m a destination store, not a tourist store.” In Fetch Doggy Boutique & Bakery, manager Patty Lutz is often there talking extensively with the customers she knows well. “Last night, I was home and it was 8 [p.m.] and a customer called me regarding their dog; their dog wasn’t feeling good, and their vet had closed,” she said. “You know what I mean, like there’s no cut out. We have hours that the store is open; but, if someone needs to talk to me

and they have my number, they’re always welcome to call.” Some of the shop owners on East Main sell products produced by hand, often in their own studios. Anna Radzinsky, the co-owner of The Barn, sells custom woodwork and signs. She also takes old furniture like wardrobes and cabinets, refinishes them and puts her own designs on them. At the same time her partner, Shawn Keane, does landscaping and completed the small garden laid into the bricks just outside of her shop. Susan Rodgers of Susan Rodgers Designs traveled the country for 15 years selling her artwork in art shows. When eventually it came time to settle down in order to sell her work and the work of her friends, she chose East Main Street because she said it feels like what she imagined a small town to be. “I think people are tired of things being the same,” Rodgers said. “The cookie-cutter sacrificing quality, and I think people are beginning to realize, compared to big box stores, the link to an individual person.” Business on East Main is rarely stagnant. Miranda Carfora, a young entrepreneur, said she soon plans to open a store on East Main Street called BiblioFlames that will sell books and candles inspired by books. “It’s really hard for independent bookstores, but I’m hoping that since I tied in my candles into the books I’ll have more customers that way,“ she said. Carfora fits right into the scene that exists on East Main Street. Though the future for perspective small-business owners is always uncertain, Davidson’s advice for someone opening a shop on East Main Street is rather simple. “Be unique,” she said. “You have to be unique and have what nobody else has.”

Letters to the editor

Red light camera program is a detriment

Photo from Three Village Kids Lemonade Stand

A lemonade stand created by Stony Brook teens raised almost $20,000 for charity prior to and during an annual event last week.

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

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

Despite the urging of countless motorists and several lawmakers, including myself, the administration has refused to entertain any suspension or re-evaluation of this program, which at best is flawed

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

Robert Trotta Suffolk County Legislator 13th District

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

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

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

Elizabeth Gonzalez Dolginko Northport

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

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

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

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


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

D. None of the above

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

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

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

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


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

Between you and me

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

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



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