Registered nurses at St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center in Smithtown and St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson have been working without a contract since March 2015, but they may be nearing a tipping point. Nurses from both hospitals voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike this week, according to a statement dated Oct. 17 from the New York State Nurses Association, a union that represents about 40,000 registered nurses in the state. “We are very frustrated with management,” Tracy Kosciuk, a St. Charles nurse in the maternal child unit who has been with the hospital for nearly three decades, said in a statement. Kosciuk is also the president of the union’s executive committee for St. Charles. “We feel a total lack of respect. Our community appreciates our dedication and management should too.” Spokespersons from both hospitals responded to the union’s actions in emailed statements. “We are working diligently to resolve all issues and have made great progress toward that goal,” separate statements from St. Charles executive director for public and external affairs, Marilyn Fabbricante, and St. Catherine’s executive vice president and chief administrative officer, Paul Rowland, each said. “We look forward to a mutually satisfactory collective bargaining agreement which rewards our nurses and meets the needs of our hospitals.” Fabbricante added that St. Charles has not yet been informed by the union of plans to go on strike. Carl Ginsburg, a spokesman for the union, said they have strike authorizations from members at both hospitals, though negotiations are ongoing and no dates have been determined for the strikes. Unions are required to give health care institutions at least 10 days notice prior to a strike, according to the National Labor Relations Board — and Ginsburg said that had not yet occurred. According to the release from the union, its members are frustrated by inadequate staffing and are seeking better health bene-

fits and a pay increase in their next contract. In 1995, performance of nurses and other health care professionals became subject to ratings based on patient surveys conducted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, according to its website. “All of these issues affect retention and recruitment,” Tammy Miller, a nurse at St. Catherine of Siena, said in a statement. “Keeping and attracting experienced nurses are essential to quality care.” Dawn Bailey, a registered nurse and labor bargaining unit executive committee member of the NYS Nurses Association, said during a picket outside the Smithtown medical center in April that working a shift without adequate staff can be dangerous not only for patients, but for nurses as well, on top of the potential damage it can do to ratings. “You can’t have two people lifting a patient all the time because there’s not that other person available,” Bailey said. “When people are going out with back injuries, then [members of hospital administration] wonder why.” Kosciuk expressed a similar sentiment during a picket in April. “Unfortunately the mentality … nowadays in the industry is [that] all hospitals are short staffed,” she said. “That’s not acceptable to have that mind-set.” Victoria Espinoza contributed to this story.

Tips for a safe Halloween In preparation for Halloween, Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro (R) is offering parents some tips, courtesy of the American Academy of Pediatrics, to help ensure children enjoy the holiday safely.

ALL DRESSED UP

• Consider adding reflective tape or striping to costumes and trick-or-treat bags for greater visibility. • Because masks can limit or block eyesight, consider nontoxic makeup and decorative hats as safer alternatives. •When shopping for costumes, wigs and accessories, look for and purchase those with a label clearly indicating they are flame-resistant. • If a sword, cane or stick is a part of your child’s costume, make sure it it’s not sharp or long.

ON THE TRICK-OR-TREAT TRAIL

• A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds. • Obtain flashlights with fresh batteries for all children and their escorts. • If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home. • Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat. • Because pedestrian injuries are the most common injuries to children on Halloween,

remind trick-or-treaters: • Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going. • Remember reflective tape for costumes and trick-or-treat bags. • Carry a cell phone for quick communication. • Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk. • If no sidewalk is available, walk at the far edge of the roadway facing traffic. • Never cut across yards or use alleys. • Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks. Never cross between parked cars or out of driveways. • Don’t assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing trick-or-treaters. Just because one car stops, doesn’t mean others will. • Law enforcement authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity.

Domestic violence awareness event In an effort to bring awareness to domestic violence, all New Yorkers are being asked to wear purple Oct. 20 as part of National Domestic Awareness Month. The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office will be joining with other government agencies and nonprofit groups Oct. 20 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the H. Lee Dennison Building in Hauppauge for the 26th annual Commemoration Day to honor those who have been affected by domestic violence. There will be information about victims’ services, as well as speakers who will discuss their personal stories. The public is encouraged to share their Commemoration Day photos and stories using the hashtag #TurnSuffolkPurple. Sheriff Vincent DeMarco wants to bring awareness to the VINE and SAVIN-NY programs, which help protect victims of domestic violence. The Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification, or SAVIN-NY, program permits victims to register to be notified when a Family Court Order of Protection has been served on their abuser. The Victim Information and Notification Everyday system, or VINE, allows victims to register by phone or online to be notified when an offender is released from jail. VINE is available nationwide and may also be accessed through a downloadable app. Both services are offered completely free of charge and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. More information and links to

Oct. is National Domestic Awareness Month.

the systems are available on the Sheriff’s Office website at www.SuffolkSheriff.com. “Victims of domestic violence and other crimes often live in fear,” DeMarco said. “The VINE and SAVIN-NY applications can provide some peace of mind to victims and family members and we need to spread the word about these important services. I am also encouraging residents to do their part to help reduce the number of people who are unsafe in their homes and relationships. If you suspect child or adult abuse, take action so that a professional can look into the situation. It never hurts to make a confidential call, and that one simple act could help save a life.” •Child Abuse Hotline Number: 1-800-342-3720 •Adult Abuse Hotline Number: 1-844-697-3505

Clearing trees to build solar farms, like this one in Shoreham, would be illegal in Brookhaven Town if a proposed amendment passes.

Town mulling solar amendment Brookhaven Town is all for going green — but not at the expense of green. The town board held a public hearing to discuss a resolution that would amend its solar code during a meeting Sept. 29 and would make land clearing for solar energy production illegal. If passed, solar energy production equipment could only be installed on land that was cleared prior to January 2016. “It is a starting point and that is the best part,” Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine (R) said of the amendment in a phone interview. “We will not be clearing trees to create solar farms in business and industrial zones. … While I’m a believer in solar power, we don’t want to trade one green for another green.” Community members spoke in favor of the amendment during the public comment period of the meeting. “We need not sacrifice forests for solar,” Richard Amper, executive director of Long Island Pine Barrens Society, said in an interview. “It’s equivalent to destroying the environment to protect it. We don’t have the open space to meet the requirements of Governor Cuomo’s ‘50 by 30’ initiative, without alternative transmission lines such as offshore wind farming.” The Clean Energy Standard of Cuomo (D) requires that 50 percent of New York’s electricity comes from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar by 2030. Amper said he is in favor of alternate energy sources, and welcomed the amendment. “We need renewable energy sources, solar is important,” he said. “We just need to be careful where it’s sited. It shouldn’t

be on forested land, on farms where food is grown or in residential communities. It should be on rooftops, parking lots and previously cleared lands.” Other members of the town board expressed their support for the amendment. “My constituents in Council District 1 have expressed support for renewable energy and smart energy alternatives,” Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station) said in a statement. “They want to ensure that government is thinking strategically about how to limit and reduce nonrenewable energy, improve air quality and diversify power sources.” Additionally, the amendment would reduce the amount of acreage allowed for solar farming, from 10 to 5 acres in business and industrial zones. Restrictions in the town’s solar code also require a buffer zone of 25 feet around all mechanical equipment and solar panel arrays for aesthetic reasons. Director and vice president of the East Moriches Property Owners Association, Jim Gleason, — Ed Romaine spoke in favor of the amendment during the meeting, but advocated for increasing buffer zones. “Solar panels are ugly,” he said. “A 25foot minimum buffer is not enough, 7-foot evergreens are not tall enough. Some panels are 20 feet.” Councilwoman Jane Bonner (C-Rocky Point) disagreed. “I think that shopping centers and housing developments are more unsightly than solar panels,” Bonner said. “There’s no noise, no traffic, no pollution and no long-term health risks for residents in communities where solar farming and energy production is located.” The town board will vote on the resolution at the meeting Thursday, Oct. 27.

‘We will not be clearing trees to create solar farms in business and industrial zones. ... While I’m a believer in solar power, we don’t want to trade one green for another green.’

last thing added to the curriculum. Then ask, what was removed to make room for it. If there’s no answer, it means the program was diluted (unless the school day or year was expanded — not a chance) or in a misguided way, the usual ballast of art and music were reduced. Like the roach motel, once something enters the schoolhouse door, it can almost never leave. Schools change very little. If you were in the fifth grade 25 years ago and you visited a class today, it would look very familiar. Computers and tablets are used like electric paper, but the substance is the same. Oh, the blackboards are now smarter … but are the kids? Old wine in new bottles. Remember, the learning clock is ticking. Time is passing. As a child, I had a fantasy of every person, at birth, receiving a huge hourglass. Except it wasn’t designed to measure an hour. It was constructed as a lifetime-glass. The top bulb contained all the sand representing one’s life according to actuarial tables. It was inverted at birth and the sand started trickling through the narrow stem passageway. One could see the top bulb dripping sand into the bottom bulb. Even at night, opening one eye, one could visualize their lifetime with the lower heap growing while the upper kept draining smaller. I wondered if a life would be led differently with such a visual aid. Schools have to think that way. They must sort out, rummage through, and evaluate all available knowledge and select

those age-appropriate things that will help develop students into educated people with transferable skills and functional wisdom. Ideally, layer upon layer will build up until enough practical knowledge and related talents enable graduates to negotiate life in a fluid and uncertain world — a very moveable feast. A friend recently told me the experience of his dental school orientation at the University of Maryland. The dean advised the new students that 50% of what they’d learn would no longer be true by the time they graduated. Furthermore, he advised, they won’t know which 50% it was. So what did we learn in school? Reading. Of course reading. And math. Although I never did divide 4/7 by 3/9 ever again, I remember some lessons quite well. Pilgrims wore funny hats and buckled shoes. We drew pictures of them. They were brought home and taped to refrigerators — or iceboxes —remember, this was the South Bronx in the ‘50s. “Mary’s violet eyes … ” helped us learn what was, at the time, the order of the planets. But of what practical value is there in knowing that Jupiter is nearer to the earth than Saturn? So little time … so much knowledge. Bruce Stasiuk of Setauket continued to teach after retirement. He currently offers workshops to seniors (citizens, that is) as an instructor in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, housed on the campus of Stony Brook University.

Community rallies to improve NYS child sex abuse laws By Ted Ryan and VicToRia espinoza

©151563

Residents of the North Shore gathered at Veterans Memorial Park in St. James Oct. 15, to raise awareness of sexual abuse of children in New York state. Democratic candidate for the state Senate race in the 2nd District, Peter Magistrale, hosted the rally. He is advocating for a change to the current statute of limitations that restricts when a child rape victim can come forward with a civil or criminal case against their abuser. In New York, once victims turn 23 they can no longer make a case for child abuse against the predator in question. According to research conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before the age of 18. In addition, the National Center for Victims of Crime said 14 percent of sexual offenders commit another sexual offense after five years, and 24 percent after 15 years. The National Sex Offender Public Website stated children usually delay telling someone if they have been sexually abused because they are either afraid of a negative reaction from their parents or of being harmed by the abuser. The website indicated kids often “delay disclosure until adulthood.” Magistrale said he thinks the restriction is unjust and wants to turn the tide on child abusers by removing the statute of limitations through the Child Victims Act. The bill

James. would eliminate both criminal and civil statutes of limitation for child sexual abuse, and provide a one-time, one-year window in the statute of limitations to enable victims whose claim was time-barred by the current arbitrary limitations to revive their claim. A similar version of this bill failed to make it past the state Senate floor during the legislative session this past June. “A kid takes on average 21 years to come forward [to admit they were abused],” Magistrale said at the rally. “The average age

that a child is raped is 8 or 9. By the time they build the courage and get over their psychological scars, time is up. We have to pass the Child Victims Act to do two things: Lift the statute of limitations completely, and then give a one-year look back window for people who were abused and unable to come forward in the past to point out who did it to them so we get them [the predators] off the street as well.” Several victims of child abuse spoke at the rally, as well as members of anti-child abuse

organizations. They told their stories of the abuse and their subsequent frustration with the restrictive statute. Among the speakers was Melanie Blow, COO of the Stop Abuse Campaign. “It’s simply ridiculous it’s taken us 10 years to pass the most significant bill to prevent child abuse,” Blow said. “But we’ve got survivors coming together right now to get the word out, to tell parents that this is an issue, and this piece of legislation will help.” John De Vito, Democratic candidate for the state Senate’s 3rd district, also spoke at the rally. “So many people here who are victims of sexual violence might never have a day in court to seek justice,” De Vito said. “But if we pass the Child Victims Act, our children will be awarded that opportunity going forward.” During an interview at TBR News Media’s office in East Setauket, state Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan (R-East Northport) said he agreed with Magistrale, who he is running against for re-election in the 2nd District, that this is an important issue but he does not support the legislation. “There are significant protections in the law right now,” he said. “This is a oneyear opener that could bring cases going back 40, 50, 60 years. We have statute of limitations for very cogent reasons and no matter how emotional a subject may be, witness availability, evidence, all those things have a salutary effect in terms of what happens.”

Village Mayor Margot Garant and the rest of the village board thank donors and volunteers who raised money to make their impending renovations to rocketship Park possible at an event oct. 13.

Rocketship Park renovation plans set for winter, park to reopen in spring By Alex Petroski alex@tbrnewspapers.com Port Jefferson’s iconic Rocketship Park is getting a facelift this winter. Village board members, mayors past and present, local politicians, community members and donors gathered at the park Oct. 13 to commemorate the kick-off of the project. “In the seven years that I’ve been your mayor, we’ve done a lot of projects here in Port Jefferson … but of all of those projects, I don’t think one is more important or near and

dear to our hearts than this little park, because Rocketship Park is really the heartbeat of the community,” Mayor Margot Garant said. In all, nearly $275,000 has been raised toward the project, in large part thanks to the efforts of the Village’s Treasure Your Parks campaign. On Oct. 9, a 15K Run to the Port Jeff Brewing Company hosted nearly 1,000 runners and raised more than $5,000 toward the renovations. The brewery’s owner, Mike Philbrick, said he decided to donate the proceeds from the race toward the Rocketship

Park initiative because he has four kids and the cause is very personal to him. Local Cub Scout Troop 41 held a bake sale and sold candy and popcorn for movie night events at Harborfront Park during the summer to raise money as well, and representatives from the group were in attendance Oct. 13 to hand over a $350 check to Garant. “It takes a village to rebuild Rocketship Park,” Garant said. “It’s about our children and it’s about the local economy, because parks are critically impor-

tant to our community.” Former village trustee and a member of the fundraising committee, Adrienne Kessel, thanked those involved for their hard work. “No one does this alone — we have a committee that has worked tirelessly for the last four years to get us to where we are today,” she said. Garant also recognized the long list of private donors who supported the fundraising efforts. The park will be dismantled beginning in late November, equipment will be ordered and installed, and a ribbon cutting ceremony for the brand new Rocketship Park will be held sometime in late April or early May, according to an estimate from Garant.

Students from Our Lady of Wisdom Regional Catholic School in Port Jefferson were among the more than 2,400 middle school students, representing 50 schools from across Long Island, who enjoyed the beautiful fall weather at Technology Day 2016 at Adventureland in Farmingdale Oct. 13 and 14. Joe Fili, the originator of the hands-on learning event, said the event, which started in 2001, “Has been a STEM event since before the term STEM was even popularized.” STEM, which is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, is the practical application of the concepts middle school students are learning in their classes. Technology Day challenges students to use the skills they learn in multiple classes

Mather Hospital honored three individuals at its annual One Enchanted Evening Gala at East Wind in Wading River Oct. 14. Community honoree of Lippencott Financial Services Donald Lippencott, Dr. Derick George (Theodore Roosevelt Award) and Dr. William Konczynin (Theodore Roos-

evelt Award, posthumously) all received recognition. This year’s gala featured An Evening of Entertainment with the Edward Twins, who recently performed their show of male and female impersonations at Theatre Three.

and apply them to complete a variety of questions about ride design and operation. Each student is given a workbook, which they complete in teams. Their teachers have had pre-event training to help them connect the classroom activities to the park activities. “The park is pretty unique on Technology Day,” said Emily Guarnieri, technology director for the Diocese of Rockville Centre. “There are students working in small groups everywhere you look, measuring, triangulating height and exploring engineering design principles, such as structure, safety and accessibility.” Judging by the laughter and screams of delight as students rode the rides and enjoyed the park, it appeared they would have great stories to tell, and each went home a little bit smarter too.

Suffolk County bans new deadly opioid drug By Victoria Espinoza Victoria@tbrnewspapers.com A victory was gained in the fight against opioid abuse this month, as the Suffolk County Legislature unanimously approved a new bill that prohibits the sale and possession of U-47700, a highly addictive synthetic opioid drug. The pink pill contains fentanyl, another addictive and dangerous opioid, and is resistant to treatment with Narcan, a drug used to revive people who have overdosed. Suffolk County Legislator Steve Stern (D-Dix Hills) created the bill, which passed Oct. 5. “We must do everything in our power to protect our young people from synthetic opioids like U-47700 that we know lead to addiction, serious health effects, graduation to heroin and potential death,” Stern said in a statement. Stern’s office said U-47700 was originally developed by the pharmaceutical industry as an alternative to morphine but was never marketed when it was determined to be more than eight times as potent as mor-

phine. The drug is manufactured overseas, mainly in China and is sold at a low cost on the internet, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. It can be smoked, snorted or orally ingested and can cause respiratory depression, coma, permanent brain damage and death. The DEA temporarily listed the drug on Schedule I of the federal Controlled Substances Act in September because of the imminent hazard it presents to public safety. Schedule I drugs have a high potential for abuse, are not currently accepted for medical use in the U.S. and are deemed unsafe even under medical supervision. Other drugs in the Schedule I list include heroin, LSD and ecstasy. Many states, including Georgia, Ohio and Wyoming, have banned the drug. The DEA confirmed at least 15 fatalities from the use of U-47700, and according to news sources, at least 50 deaths nationwide can be linked to the drug. According to the bill, any person who knowingly violates the law will be guilty of an unclassified misdemeanor punishable

U-47700, a new opioid drug, has reportedly led to more than 50 overdose deaths across the country and is resistant to Narcan treatment.

suffolk county Legislator steve stern moved to ban this new drug quickly. by a fine of up to $1,000 and/or up to one year of imprisonment. The law goes into effect immediately after the Office of the Secretary of State files it. The legislation to prohibit its sale was supported by the entire legislature, as well

as Health Commissioner James Tomarken and Police Commissioner Tim Sini. “I thank my colleagues on the Legislature for joining me in taking meaningful action to protect the health and safety of our communities,” Stern said.

History

Donald trump and hillary clinton didn’t invent bitter campaigns.

File photo

Ugly elections aren’t new By Rich AcRitelli As our nation moves closer to the 2016 presidential election, Americans are watching a heated campaign between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. It is a contest that has been highlighted by a great deal of mudslinging by both candidates. While these leaders are battling for the Oval Office, this type of political fight has happened in the past. It was President Abraham Lincoln’s goal to preserve the Union, and while he achieved this national goal, he was assassinated shortly after the Civil War. Vice President Andrew Johnson from Tennessee was a Democrat turned Republican, and a tailor turned politician. He was the only senator from the South not to secede from the Union. Right away, he clashed with Republicans over the enhanced rights for African-Americans and was not overly harsh on the southern states. Both the president and Congress tenaciously opposed each other with historic numbers of vetoes and overrides. Matters grew worse for Johnson when he violated the Tenure of Office Act. The law prohibited him from firing any cabinet member appointed by Lincoln. Johnson believed the law was unconstitutional and tested its merits when he fired Secretary of War Edwin Stanton. At once, major congressional leaders initiated impeachment charges against Johnson. During the crisis, Commanding General of the Union Army Ulysses S. Grant distanced himself from the unpopularity of Johnson. While Grant was a controversial, but successful general tabbed to run against Lincoln for the presidency, Grant liked Lincoln and refused to run against him. He detested Johnson, and entertained the notion of opposing him. Grant believed the South should follow its constitutional responsibilities to support the enhanced rights for blacks in America. Although Johnson was not impeached, he was a “lame duck” figure and was seen as a political outcast.

In 1876, Rutherford B. Hayes, from Ohio, represented the Republican Party against Democrat Samuel Tilden from New York. This was a difficult election for Hayes and the Republicans, as many citizens were leery of the Grant Administration’s checkered record. Hayes was seen as an honest man who was respected for his services during the Civil War. At 40-years-old, this successful lawyer left his four children and served with distinction during many bloody battles. At the end of the war, his friends believed he should request a furlough in order to run for Congress. Hayes missed his family, but he denied these political aspirations, and continued to fight until the South surrendered in 1865. For his efforts, this future president was promoted as a brigadier general. After the war, he won a seat in Congress and fought for rights for African-Americans on the state and federal levels of government. Once it was understood Grant would not run for a third term, Hayes was seen as the reformer needed to fix the image of the Republican Party. Hayes barely defeated Tilden. In order for Hayes to win the presidency, he had to end Reconstruction, allow southern states to handle civil rights for African-Americans, and to place Democrats in his cabinet. While Hayes was viewed as an honest man, he never shed the perception his presidential victory was tarnished by compromises and side room deals. Compared to other leaders, Grover Cleveland had a unique political experience. This Gilded Age president was a twoterm leader that did not serve consecutively. He was also different from other candidates at this time because he hadn’t served during the Civil War. Cleveland was an assistant district attorney during the war and paid a replacement to take his place within the Union Army. During this time of great economic growth and corruption, Cleveland was seen as a reformer and an honest politician. His enemies believed that he intentionally evaded the draft when he was called upon to preserve the nation.

Update from PJ historical society

The local historical society has put grant money toward Mather House, and other projects.

Multi-age students share a learning experience.

File photo

Is it time to rethink public education? With last month’s release of a new draft of learning standards for Common Core in New York, the state Education Department may be trying to put lipstick on a pig. The standards were updated to give students more time to understand curriculum and make student expectations and lesson plans clearer to parents. But some educators and superintendents across Long Island said these changes are merely superficial and will have no real impact on improving the heavily criticized learning system. Public comment on the draft standards is being collected on the SED website (nysed.gov/aimhighny) through Nov. 4. It will be interesting to see how parents and teachers continue to respond. In a democracy, when policies like Common Core are met with overwhelming disdain even across party lines, change should not be so difficult. Maybe it’s time we all gave a little more thought to what we’re really trying to accomplish via schooling. What, exactly, should be taught in the 21st century? And how can it best be delivered to our future leaders? It’s probably not a bad idea to have some baseline of what everyone needs to learn — and, some mechanism for assessment — but not at the expense of eliminating music and art that contribute to creating well-rounded individuals. And certainly, not at the cost of preventing teachers from using their own creativity and enthusiasm to inspire a thirst for lifelong learning in students. We hope residents across Long Island will continue to voice their concerns and participate in this survey if they feel Common Core is still not doing their children justice. As Bob Dylan wrote, long ago, “The times, they are a-changing.” It’s as true today as it was back then — only time is changing faster. Let’s make sure our educational system has the capacity to change with the times, and change for the better.

In your Aug. 25 article entitled “Grants fund historic projects,” where you explained the various projects funded through grants from the Robert D.L. Gardiner Foundation, there were no specifics as to how the funds would used on the grounds of the Mather House Museum operated by the Historical Society of Greater Port Jefferson. Because of this, we felt that the public and our members should be informed on how the grant money was used. The grant was obtained through the hard work of one of our trustees, Anthony Butera, and was co-authored by Marybeth Esposito, grant coordinator at Mather Hospital. The historical society, Mather Hospital and the Village of Port Jefferson have a unique connection — that being John T. Mather: a major shipbuilder in the village, second only to the Bayles Shipyard builders;

owner and resident of Mather House; and benefactor and namesake of the hospital. This unique bond helped the historical society form a partnership with Mather Hospital to obtain the grant to complete restoration projects on Mather House and the consignment shop — also known as Dedio House. The $22,000 grant from the Gardiner Foundation has allowed us to complete the restoration of the Yankee gutter system on Mather House and much-needed repairs to the roof, thus maintaining the original look of the facade and preventing further water damage to the building. Secondly, we were able to install a new cedar shake roof on the consignment shop. Because some funding had already been budgeted for the roof replacement, we were able to reallocate these funds to the installation of wood clapboard siding and

exterior molding details, completing a multiyear restoration of the building. Maintenance of these buildings using materials that respect their history and original appearance is a daunting task for nonprofit organizations such as our historical society, where budgets are almost always strained, but we take this stewardship seriously. We thank the Gardiner Foundation for its generous support and Mather Hospital for its assistance in obtaining the grant. On behalf of the board of trustees, I thank you for the opportunity to provide some detail on how the grant has helped the historical society fulfill its mission.

Nick Acampora Historical Society of Greater Port Jefferson

The changing state of personhood The birth of our nation was structured on the foundation of family. The family is now under duress as we enter into a progressive direction. This was not the intent of our Founding Fathers. Today, our government is being challenged in social change. This direction will alter our concepts of our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. Our educational system has deteriorated in quality far below most nations. Objective teaching no longer exists in our liberal society. Many students cannot name our first president. Will cause and effect ever be realized? Lost youth will be lost nation. Parental authority and guidance have

been taken over by our schools. Parents have surrendered their authority to our schools. Our nation is now entering a new state of personhood. Our structure of language and identity is now in change. Example: Ms. Replacing Mrs. or Miss, congressmen and congresswoman with congressperson, chairman and chairwoman as chairperson, actress now referred to as actor. This transition with lost identity continues. Is our identity shameful in today’s society? There is now a sexual revolution expanding as a malignant plague. Previous acceptable behavior no longer applies. Unisex bathrooms are proposed as

acceptable. Mindless souls now run the asylum. We now have the pleasure of sexual change that is pleasing for our personal desires. Does humanity still have conscience over our Creator’s intent? Let our truths return more with principles of knowledge and more aptitude. On Election Day, let us return to the concepts of our Constitution. If truth is so overbearing to print in “Opinion,” I understand, for truth can be painful. May the love of nation once again return our lost heritage. God bless America.

opinion Picking races that matter the most

O

n your mark, get set ... Wait! I know we’ve never seen an Olympic sprinter or swimmer take off his goggles, stand up from the starter’s block, scratch his chin, shrug his shoulders and walk away. After all, these athletes have spent years preparing for races that sometimes last less time than it takes us to order lunch. Like it or not, most of us are in races of all kinds. Some of them are positive and can even be necessary, while others may not be as producBy Daniel Dunaief tive. We race against the bully in the playground to prove that we can cross the lawn faster than he can, we race against the car at the other end of the parking lot so we can get the closest spot — and we

D. None of the above

race to our seats in a movie theater so we don’t miss the previews. Some of these races clearly offer us an incentive to improve our lives, the lives of those around us or just to make us feel better. Beating the fastest kid on the block may not be something we put on our resumé, but it can give us confidence in other arenas. Races can be inspirational. Watch any Olympic Games and every media outlet is in search of an incredible story. Witness Wilma Rudolph. She had polio when she was 4, which caused her to have infantile paralysis. Through her recovery, she wore a brace on her leg until she was 9. She went on to become an Olympic track star in 1956 and 1960. Races can also encourage people to climb out of bed each morning, recognizing the urgency to do important work. Scientists, for example, frequently describe the race to cure cancer and to provide relief from other diseases that destroy our friends and relatives quickly, or slowly take them away from us. The scientific researchers know, without looking at a clock, that people

are suffering day and night with limited treatment, which also motivates them to work late at night or through weekends. Rescue workers, including the police, firefighters and the Coast Guard, race into storms or treacherous conditions to help people. Seconds can mean the difference between life and death. With everyone racing to something every day, it’s easy to see how some of those races, particularly the ones with little at stake, seem more like a battle of wills than a race. Do I need to race to the shortest line in the supermarket before that other person, with the same intent look in his eyes? What happens if I lose that race? Am I stuck in this other line for an extra 20 seconds or, gasp, even a minute or more? When we’re driving, we recognize that an ambulance racing past requires us to get out of the way. That’s not only the law, but it’s also the way we help our society function. When confronted with someone in a spectacular hurry, it’s possible and even likely that the person may be racing against or toward something we can’t see or understand.

High college costs heading for a fall

A

friend of mine, who is about my age and grew up on Long Island, was somewhat timid about going into the Big Apple on her own because she didn’t feel she knew how to get around, but she now is empowered by her car service. She is a member of the customer base of Uber or Lyft or Via — one of those and others that she can summon with her cellphone to take her on her errands around the city. The By Leah S. Dunaief service comes within two or three minutes, and she gets in and gets out, sometimes sharing the ride with another passenger, without having to so much as reach for her wallet. The fee and tip are automatically charged to her credit card and the price is significantly cheaper than an ordinary taxi. It is as if she had a chauffeured limo at her beck and call. As a result

Between you and me

she uses the service more often. When a store charges prices that are generally considered too high by shoppers, the store invites competition to come into the neighborhood. The same rule of economics applies to manufacturers and to industries. Sometimes that competition takes the more profound form of disruption by competitors who are aided by advances in technology, like the cellphone. In the instance of my friend and many like her, the car services have severely disrupted the taxi industry, dropping the NYC medallion price considerably. Another vulnerable industry is higher education. As the cost of a college education has gone up over the last 50 years by about twice the rate of inflation, the ability to secure a bachelor’s degree has moved beyond the reach of the average household. The result has been an untenable explosion of student — and parent — educational debt. This trend has also exacerbated the widening gulf between the haves and have-nots. Those without a four-year degree earn less over the course of their lives. While there are good public universities and community colleges, like

Stony Brook University and Suffolk County Community College, that are more reasonably priced and often allow the student to live at home and avoid room and board fees, there is another, growing option for students. Some colleges, including those with more well-known names, are offering bachelor’s degrees online. Although this may have struck many as snake oil in the past, today an online degree has become a viable option thanks to enormous technological gains — with more to come. Professors can stand in front of a class of students numbering from a handful to several hundred on campus. But thanks to webinars and other advances on the web, their student listeners may number in the thousands. Ah, you say, but they miss the live interaction of a classroom setting. Wrong. The students can now hear each other, as well as the professor, speak to each other and even see each other. There is more interaction over the Internet, in fact, than there is typically in large lecture classes. Shortly the speed of the Internet will reach unimaginable numbers to accommodate the instant transmission of incredible

And then there are the times when we are racing out to do something that may not, on second thought, be important or even all that helpful. Yes, movement might be positive and, yes, we might benefit from cutting down the time to accomplish something, but might we have found a shorter route or even a different path without all that running around? If we see our lives as a series of races, maybe we can pick the ones we truly want to run, while also recognizing that we can define a successful race for ourselves. Many years ago, I attended a press conference before the New York City Marathon. One of the reporters asked a Kenyan athlete, who was likely to finish in the top 10, about winning. The runner, whose pace per mile for more than 26 miles is faster than most people can sprint for a single mile, took his time to answer. “To finish the race is to win the race,” he said grinning, taking much more time between words than he would between strides the next day.

amounts of information. Professors attest to the high quality of response from the online students handing in assignments. There is even technology for locking down computers during tests to prevent cheating. Online education has already disrupted traditional education, and not just for special one-off events that are typically used by businesses and special-interest groups but for longterm degrees. Just Google “online degree programs USA,” and you will find 10 pages of names for starters. These include 2016 Top Online Colleges & Degrees, The 50 Best Online Colleges for 2016, List of Accredited Online Colleges & Universities, U.S. News & World Report 2016 Best Online Programs, Boston University online programs and so forth. Habits change more quickly today than at any other time in history. Just ask me how people get the top of the news each day: It’s not so much from newspapers or radio, or from network television or even cable TV — we get up in the morning and eyeball our mobile phones. Pay attention, college administrators and trustees, serious disruption is near.
