Brockport Construction Continues in Port Jeff

BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Village residents living near the construction of The Brockport apartment complex on the old Cappy’s Carpets site have been hearing the hammering of pilings going in, signaling construction starting on the long-awaited project. Some residents have complained about the noise of the pilings hammered into the ground, comparing the noise to what residents heard when the original Shipyard apartment complex was being constructed. Rob Gitto, of The Gitto Group, the developer behind the project, said that, weather permitting, the significant construction noise should cease by around Wednesday, Nov. 27. “We are also very sensitive to the noise issue as our office building is on the north side, adjacent to the project and our Barnum House/CVS property is located directly south and adjacent of the project,� Gitto said in an email. He said the next phase of the project will include helical piles, which are drilled into the T

ground and make significantly less noise. Alison LaPointe, the special village attorney for the Planning and Building department, said the developer had received the project’s site plans after sending them to another firm for additional review in October. The planning board received the site plans and had issued the developer a building permit last week. She confirmed the developer’s projection of finishing hammering the pilings by at least the end of the week. “They are making good progress, no snags thus far,� she said.

Cartright, Town Board and County Contest over Transport for the Homeless

“This is basically a backstop measure in case of an emergency,” Cartright said. “Everybody is clear whose responsibility [transportation for the homeless] is.” In the letter, Kaiman wrote that he was aware of the incident in October but described it as an “infrequent occurrence.” The county provides tokens for public transportation to the homeless in need of transit to a shelter, and on occasion Suffolk will facilitate pickup with a taxicab. Cartright has sponsored the resolution since early October, but the bill has been tabled two times, Oct. 3 and 24. Both times Councilman Neil Foley (R-Blue Point) moved to table the resolution and was accepted by the supervisor and all council members, except for Cartright. Romaine said he and the board initially thought they had the support of the county through Legislator Kara Hahn (D-Setauket), however, the letter, he said, disproved that assumption. The supervisor added he had no means to put forward an MOU without the consent of the county. “I think we should defeat this until the county expresses an interest — it takes two to tango,” Romaine said. “We don’t have the willingness and cooperation from the county of Suffolk.” He later added that transportation for homeless individuals was under the county’s jurisdiction, and not of the town’s. “It’s like asking the county to pave our roads, they don’t do that,” he said. “That’s why we have different levels of government.” Hahn released a statement on the ongoing discussion. “We are in the process of discussing the possibility of a multijurisdictional solution with cooperation between the Town and CounTOWN AND COUNTY Continued on A11

A local town council member has put forward attempts to offer emergency transportation for the homeless when the county cannot, though not all parties are on the same page if the service is necessary or even wanted. The Brookhaven Town Board meeting Nov. 19 showcased a rare public heated moment between members of the town council, specifically over a resolution to offer jitney services for the homeless when the county cannot. Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station) has for months been supporting a resolution to allow the town to enter an intermunicipal agreement with Suffolk County for the town to provide jitney services to transport homeless people to a shelter or other facility in an emergency situation. The Democratic councilwoman’s move to table the resolution resulted in a heated discussion over the timing and merits of the bill, and after advice from town attorney Annette Eaderesto, the councilwoman withdrew the resolution. In a letter to the Town, Suffolk County Deputy Executive Jon Kaiman said that the county had “no ability” to put forward a memorandum of understanding regarding using municipal town buses for transporting the homeless. “There would be a number of issues such as cost of personnel, operations and administration that we would need to explore before we would consider making any recommendations,” said the letter sent to Matt Miner, the town chief of operations. Kaiman did not respond to requests to his office for additional comment. The lone Democrat on the Town Board asked why she had not seen the letter until 18 days after the town had originally received it. “I’m looking at an email that was sent to Matt Miner on Nov. 1. Today is Nov. 19,” Cartright said to Supervisor Ed Romaine (R). In a previous interview, Cartright described an encounter with one homeless couple several months ago. After the work of convincing them to accept residence in a Suffolk County shelter, the councilwoman waited outside with them for a cab that was ordered by the county. After more than two hours of waiting, the cab had not shown and had been misdirected to Port Jefferson village instead of Port Jeff Station. She said the event showed there was a missing piece to available transport for the homeless, who are often very hesitant to accept assistance from the government in the first place. If she wasn’t there, the councilwoman said, she felt the homeless couple would likely never have gotten in the cab to go to a shelter.

Port Jeff Looks into Adding Electric Car Chargers BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Port Jeff village officials are considering installing an electric car charger into an existing parking space toward the west end of the lot off Barnum Avenue. Nick Dattilo, a salesperson for Nesconsetbased electrical supplies company Kelly & Hayes, presented to the village board Nov. 18 about the possibility of installing a Charge Point electric vehicle charging station. Each station comes with two extendable charging ports and can be accessed with either an app or with a device that usually comes with a standard electric vehicle. Kevin Wood, parking and mobility administrator, said the village is looking to make use of a New York State Energy Research and Development grant, which will provide up to an 80 percent rebate for such projects, from $250,000 up to a max of $500,000. The village would have to put the money upfront to be reimbursed. Mayor Margot Garant said she wanted to make sure the grant was in place before signing any contract for Charge Point. Wood said the village could benefit, as the demographic of electric car owners is on the rise. “As soon as you drive in [to the parking lot] you drive right into these,” Wood said. “I just like the idea that a person could come to Rocketship Park with their kids and charge their car.”

Officials said the hope is people with electric vehicles would shop while waiting for their car to charge. Each charge takes from three to five hours for a full charge. The station includes an 18-foot retractable cord that winds up like a vacuum electric cord. Though each station comes with two ports, Wood said he would like to see only one port be used with one space as a pilot. He added the village’s parking committee is usually hesitant to give up even a single space. “If we saw it being used a lot, we’d open the second one up,” he said. “This town can’t afford to give away spaces.” There are several electric vehicle charging stations in the immediate area. One set is in the parking lot of Heritage Park in Mount Sinai, and another set is provided at Stony Brook University, whose services are not billed for use. The village board would still have to decide upon cost to the driver, with the rate depending on how long a car is being charged. Garant mentioned, depending on cost, the service could be offered free to attract people into downtown Port Jeff. The board plans to reassess the feasibility of the charging station at the next board meeting, Dec. 2. Wood said his goal is for installation of the charger next to Rocketship Park to take place in the first quarter of 2020.

Zeldin Holds Fundraiser/Book Signing for Trump Jr.

BY DONNA DEEDY DONNA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

It’s a book signing. … It’s a political fundraiser. … It’s the latest trend in party politics. Donald Trump Jr. attended an event at the Flowerfields Catering Hall in St. James Thursday, Nov. 21, where campaign lawn signs for U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY-1) were planted along the walkway into the venue. Inside the reception hall, stacks of Trump Jr.’s new book, “Triggered,” were piled high. Released on Nov. 5, the book shot to the top of the New York Times Best Seller list after the Republican National Committee bought the book in bulk, spending nearly $100,000, to distribute as donor prizes, according to a New York Times report. Tickets for Zeldin’s VIP Reception at Flowerfields cost $1,000 per person, which included a signed copy of Trump Jr.’s book. General admission cost $200 per person with a signed copy of the book or $150 with an unsigned copy. Additional copies of a signed book were being sold for $100. Checks were to be made out to Zeldin Victory Committee. “The Congressman is grateful for the

sweeping support he’s received, highlighted by record fundraising numbers this year,” Zeldin’s spokesperson Katie Vincentz stated. “Attended by over 350 people and raising over $200,000, this latest smash success fundraiser builds on that increasing momentum.” Members of the press were turned away from the event. “Sorry, the Secret Service said no,” reporters were told at the reception desk inside. A Secret Service representative, though, later stated in an email that the agency does not facilitate media access issues. Outside the Gyrodyne Property on Moriches Road several dozen protesters assembled. “No public town hall in two and half years,” they yelled out to cars passing by. “Tell Zeldin to hold a public town hall.” St. James resident Maria LaMalga was among the protesters. She said she asked to speak with the congressman, had left messages and submitted written requests to talk with Zeldin, but she said that she has not yet received a response. “I only see him tweeting about impeachment,” she said. “I wish he would work for his constituents.” The North Shore Peace Group organized the protest. The group’s priority issues

include comprehensive gun laws, deficit spending and U.S.-Mexico border policies, especially concerning ongoing detentions and restrictions and limitations put on refugees. In response to the criticism, Zeldin stated in an email that an open town hall meeting was hosted in September by the Mastic Beach Property Owners Association. To date, Zeldin has raised $1.8 million, according to FEC filings.

North Shore Residents Cite Increased Encounters with Deer BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Drivers are regularly reminded that deer populations along the North Shore of Long Island are increasing as many of the animals graze alongside or dart across roadways. Some of these encounters unfortunately end in collisions. With deer and people on the move during the busy holiday season, TBR News Media is taking a look at issues to hopefully curb the impact.

Destruction of vegetation

Christina Maffia, who has lived in Old Field South for 18 years, said she sees deer on her property every day, sometimes a lone buck and other times two or three animals. She described her property as “once lush, green, temperate forest that has been reduced to bare limbs below 5 feet.” She said her perennials don’t grow back due to being continuously eaten. The appearance of depleted vegetation coincided with the arrival of the deer a few years ago. She said her neighborhood had been planted back when Frank Melville established the neighborhood in 1929. The grounds in Old Field South were designed by the landscape architecture firm of Frederick Law Olmsted, which also designed Central Park. “These plantings are considered historical,” she said. “It’s such a shame that the historical part of this area that made it so beautiful is now being compromised.” Maffia has sprayed her plants with a product called Deer Off, which incorporates rotten eggs in the ingredients. It deters deer, she said, but her experience has been that whenever it rains or she runs the sprinklers, she needs to reapply the product which she uses around the

perimeter of her property. The Village of Old Field recently sent an email to residents encouraging them to use deer repellent on their properties. Village officials reminded homeowners that a new generation of deer will establish their own feeding trails this time of the year. Because of these new trails, “it is a good time of year to use repellents to redirect these trails before they become solidly developed,” the village said. According to the village email, deer repellent means less plant damage during fall and winter, and fewer deer in the village. Kathy Schiavone, of Port Jefferson, said she and her husband also have problems with their landscaping due to the deer. “We had tried the various remedies that have been suggested and have come to the conclusion that we will no longer buy and plant flowers to ornament our yard,” she said. “We did replace a number of yews with Japanese plum yews, which the deer do not bother. We had done this about five years ago. So far, so good.” According to the DEC’s website, among the food deer prefer are cedar, sassafras, wintergreen, yew, mountain maple, flowering dogwood and more. A list of other vegetation they feed on can be found at www.dec.ny.gov/ animals/7195.html. There is evidence that deer are also altering forests across New York, according to the DEC. This can reduce diversity in the forest understory, enable invasive species to outcompete natives and prevent seedlings of many species from growing into the next generation of trees.

Lyme disease

Maffia and Schiavone said they are concerned about deer ticks and contracting Lyme disease due to the increased population of deer. Both have friends and neighbors who have suffered from the tick-borne disease. Schiavone said she also knows four people who have contracted babesiosis, three of whom had to be hospitalized. Maffia said she had one neighbor with Lyme disease who later got Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Another was hospitalized with a severe inflammation around his heart caused by Lyme disease. “It’s not just aesthetics anymore,” Maffia said. “It’s people being impacted by the deer.” Nancy Irvolino has lived near Brooksite Drive in Smithtown for more than 40 years and has noticed an increase of the animals in the area. “Sometimes they are on the side [of Brooksite], but a lot of times they run out at night in front of my car and I slam the brakes,” she said. While Blydenburgh County Park abuts the lane she lives on, she said it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that she started seeing deer walking down her street and eating plants. Recently, she has seen them every night near her house. Irvolino said she worries about herself and

her dogs contracting Lyme disease and doesn’t even walk in the park due to it. According to the DEC website, deer are the primary food source for adult female ticks and reduction of deer populations to very low levels may reduce tick densities and infection rates. The Village of Old Field email to residents claimed that deer over time can carry thousands of ticks.

Solutions

Villages across the North Shore are debating the best way to cull the herds. “My hope is that our elected officials will realize the overabundance of deer is an important enough public issue to take action against,” Schiavone said. Brookhaven Town Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station) is currently working to present a townwide forum on deer with the DEC in the near future, according to her office. Belle Terre allows bow hunting, and Head of the Harbor last year joined Avalon Park & Preserve in Stony Brook with a contraceptive vaccine experiment to help with deer management. The DEC supports the use of sharpshooters, who aim for an instant kill, so the animal doesn’t suffer and also advocates donating the meat to food banks. “I am not a fan of hunting just for the sake of demonstrating one’s prowess in killing any animal,” Schiavone said. “I have been convinced by information I have gotten that culling is the answer.” Maffia, who has been a vegetarian for 30 years, agreed. “At this point, because there are no natural predators, they’re attacking so many things people wouldn’t think of,” she said.

Maffia said she and her wife, Donna Crinnian, have been able to decrease the amount of bird seed they buy in the winter as nesting birds have disappeared since the deer have eaten the ground covering where the birds would nest. “They’re impacting the ecosystem,” she said. In the Village of Port Jefferson, where hunting is prohibited, residents are asked to call 631-774-0066 if they see a deceased deer on the road and 631-744-2507 if they see a wounded deer on their property. Those who spot hunter tree stands on private property can call Kathy Grady, DEC officer, at 631-7442507 so the location can be checked to see if it qualifies as legal hunting ground. Brookhaven residents can call the Animal Shelter at 631-451-6950 to report deceased deer on the road. In Smithtown, people can call the Animal Shelter at 631-360-7575 about dead or injured wildlife. When it comes to roadways, the Department of Motor Vehicles advises drivers to be extra cautious during both dawn and dusk when deer are most active, especially in the autumn months. Insurance company State Farm recently released its animal collision study from claims data from July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2019, which estimated 1.9 million animal collision claims industrywide nationally, the large majority being with deer. During the same period, it was estimated there were 1.5 million deer claims. “Remember, animals are unpredictable, especially when faced with glaring headlights, blowing horns and fast-moving vehicles,” said Billy Williams, Setauket State Farm agent. “They often dart into traffic.” He added that drivers should remember that deer move in herds, so if one is seen on a roadway there may be more following.

Port Jefferson Royals Continue to Run Like the Wind

The Earl L. Vandermeulen High School boys cross-country team has continued the winning streak that started last year. The team members — Gray Joyner, Owen Okst, Royce Perera, Jack Reilly, Grant Samara, Cooper Such and Brian Veit — ran through the regular season undefeated and won the league championship. Veit won the individual Class C county championship.

BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Pie to die for was served up at the Village Center in Port Jefferson Nov. 23 as the village hosted its first Pie Bake Off and Eating Contest, sponsored in part by Torte Jeff Pie Co. and the Village of Port Jefferson. Residents and locals, even one who hailed from across the Sound in Connecticut, sent over two versions of their home-made pumpkin pies to see which would be the cream of the crop. Six judges, including Mayor Margot Garant and trustee Kathianne Snaden, as well as Torte Jeff Pie Co. owner Lisa Harris tried slices of 33 pies, judging them on crust, taste, sliceability and more. By the end, it was general surgeon Dr.

ty to address a specific community concern identified by Councilwoman Cartright,” the legislator said. “It is premature to identify details before we have an agreement between the two municipalities.” Eaderesto said, upon speaking to county attorney Dennis Brown, that the request should have come from the Department of Social Services rather than just from Hahn, who cannot speak for the entirety of the Legislature. Councilman Dan Panico (R-Manorville) asked for their intentions not to be misinterpreted. “This has never been put together properly on the county’s side,” he said. “The deputy

The team then made its way to the New York State Public High School Athletic Association’s championships in Plattsburgh where it finished third out of all New York State Class C schools. Samara and Veit received All-State awards by finishing in the top 20 of all Class C runners at the state championships. This is the third consecutive year that the team has received league and county championship honors.

Comsewogue School District Lawrence Kelly of Port Jefferson who won first place. Second place was tied between Tom Capodanno and Beth Whitford. The pies were raffled off for those wanting to take them home, and over $250 was donated to the food pantry at Infant Jesus Church in Port Jeff. After the judging, both adults and kids from Port Jefferson Elementary School took part in a blueberry pie-eating contest, with Luke Musto winning in the children’s division. In a contest between the village and school, the village barely managed to pull ahead. Finally, Jimmy Purificato won in the public pie-eating contest. county executive said he has no interest … If we can fill that need and truly fill that need, not just saying we do on paper, because it really isn’t the purview of the town government, it’s squarely the county’s purview.” Cartright said after the meeting she is hoping the town and county attorneys can sort out differences between the two municipalities, adding she feels such a resolution is necessary, and it conforms to previous resolutions that offered town services in emergency situations with New York State Department of Transportation. The councilwoman and other members of the Quality of Life Task Force will meet with the Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Civic Association, Dec. 17 at the Comsewogue Public Library, where they will discuss homlessness and other area issues.

Terryville’s Career Day Sparks Inspiration

More than 20 professionals visited the Terryville Elementary School in the Comsewogue School District to talk to students of future jobs during the annual career day Nov. 8. Deniz Yildirim, the elementary school librarian, said community members with a variety of jobs came to visit, from Jiu Jitsu masters to accountants. Town Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station) also made an appearance.

Teachers spent weeks planning the event, Yildirim said, including a class ambassador greeting, to leading the presenters to the classrooms where each talked for around 30 minutes about their job. “Career Day is a rich experience for everyone — experts share what they do, and the students are inspired,” said Principal Annemarie Sciove. “We truly appreciate the time and effort our presenters dedicated to our Terryville school community.”

Family Feasts Without Response to ‘Trump Is No Slump’ the Feuds

The pending impeachment proceedings of the 45th president of the United States means dinner table conversations this holiday season could get extra heated and dicey. So, it may be in everyone’s best interest to avoid breaching the topic, which risks exposing the passionate political leanings of loved ones. So, what’s a family to do? As the saying goes, you can’t pick your relatives. But you certainly can choose and encourage activities that bring people together rather than widen the divide. As you and your loved ones gather, equip yourself with a solid plan that keeps the peace. Keep in mind, talking about the weather, once a light, safeharbor topic, could backfire. Discussing California wildfires, for example, could spark a fruitless debate over the scientific theories behind climate change. Knowing this tendency, if you see news footage of the flooding in St. Mark’s Square in Venice, Italy, you might want to quickly change the channel. The first step in any successful endeavor is to set a realistic goal: Coming away from the weekend festivities without anyone suffering black eyes or bruised egos. The best option may in fact be: Eat in silence like monks. Other options, though, do exist. One idea is to play a game. Try coming up with a new name for the country, one that drops the word “United” in the United States of America. To keep it democratic, go around the table allowing each person to suggest their own clever alternative. Before or after dinner, you can also play the fast-paced word game Bananagrams, only conduct politics-themed rounds. The entertaining activity allows for self-expression and could likely become a fair-minded approach to spending quality time together while eliminating tensions in the air. If it doesn’t? Hold a regulation wrestling match on the living room floor and keep score. Takedowns, reversals, near falls and escapes all count. If tensions rise? Flip the bird. As in turkey. (Thanksgiving is the one day of the year that you can get away with this one.) Music soothes the savage beast. So, stream it in. Or better yet, make your own. Form a drum circle using common household objects as percussion instruments. The ancient practice of striking rhythm together is known to alleviate isolation and alienation. But be sure to hide the good china from the tribe. Building crafts can also be a fun and rewarding activity for family members. Martha Stewart built a dynasty, once she acknowledged this fundamental fact. Try building sock gnomes together. The blind, deaf and mute miniature humanoids can actually become an unexpected and perhaps even necessary source of inspiration for the crowd. Instead of discussing politics, you might also try identifying the moral virtues of each of the world’s many different major religions. On second thought, don’t do this. You can also give thanks with everyone recounting their blessings out loud in turn. It may in fact be the wisest strategy and there’s likely plenty of material to go around. Happy Thanksgiving!

In her letter of Nov. 21, “Trump is no slump,” Deb Sarli touts President Donald Trump [R] as the savior of our country. She lists a number of accomplishments. Even if they were his alone to claim, Trump’s egregious behavior and lack of character render him utterly unfit for the office he holds. He lies with impunity — 12,000 and counting. His dishonest business practices are well known. He is disrespectful of others, hurling personal insults and mocking the disabled. Racism has been normalized in his administration. More than a dozen women have credibly accused him of

sexual assault. These are behaviors we do not tolerate in our children, nor would they be tolerated were he in a “normal” job. During the Trump administration, America’s position on the world stage has been diminished. Our allies no longer trust us, and our adversaries have found a willing useful idiot. We are no longer respected as the leader of the free world. The results of Trump’s private diplomacy are unknown, and he is undoubtedly the most profoundly ignorant person to sit in the Oval Office, having no knowledge of our history nor any interest in learning

about governance. Yes, America does have to wake up. This is a dangerous man, who sees his office as another revenue source, who cares nothing about our country beyond what is in it for him and his family. It appears that the Republicans in Congress are placing party before country and even if he is impeached, acquittal is most likely, regardless of the mountain of evidence. We must be diligent about getting out the vote in 2020. How much more of Donald Trump can our country take? Linda Barlotta Port Jefferson

2019 Holiday Safety and Shopping Tips As our country comes to the start of the holiday season, a welcome opportunity for all of us to pause and spend quality time with our family and friends, my staff and I would like to wish our community a very Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving. We hope that everyone is able to enjoy all the things in their lives that they are thankful for and that they appreciate. With the Thanksgiving weekend serving as the unofficial start of the holiday season, we would also like to invite our residents to visit our 2019 Helpful Holiday Safety and Shopping Tips section on our

website. This section is designed to help take some of the stress out of the holidays by providing families with information on how to protect their homes, their finances and their loved ones. The site contains some easy-to-use advice and links to informative websites about cyber security, home safety and other important topics. It also contains a list of local charities that are working to make the holidays brighter for all in our community. From organizations that are at the forefront of the fight against hunger to ones that are working to make sure that every family

has a happy holiday season, these organizations are there for our less fortunate neighbors. We hope that everyone who is able will reach out and assist those in need as we enjoy the holidays. Residents can visit the 2019 Helpful Holiday Safety and Shopping Tips section by visiting flanagan.nysenate.gov and clicking on the link on the home page. We wish everyone in our community a very Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving and a wonderful holiday season. John Flanagan N.Y. State Senator

Two Things for Which I’m Thankful Each time volunteers have assembled the Parade of American Flags in Heritage Park, I feel a deep sense of thankfulness for having and enjoying the life I’ve had as a citizen of the United States. The flags lift my spirits and promote a pride in the potential of our country’s moral fiber. Noelle Dudley Dunlop of the Heritage Trust sent me the picture of some of the volunteers who helped assemble and retire the parade this past Veterans Day. I am thankful for their community service and efforts to remember our nation’s veterans on Nov. 11. Fred Drewes Mount Sinai

Another Take on Words That Matter

L

ast year at this time, I wrote a column celebrating words. I feel compelled to share another homage this year. This may start a new annual tradition. I hope you enjoy. Words dart away, just out of reach, like a fish in the ocean, a butterfly in a meadow or a Frisbee lifted overhead by a sudden breeze. Words emanate from nearby, startling us while we lay in bed, coaxing us to search the D. None house, the closet, the garage for the of the above source of elusive BY DANIEL DUNAIEF sounds. Words give strength to our arguments, power to our convictions, and a method to share our hopes, desper-

ation, dreams, fears, needs, wants and cravings. Individually and collectively, words enable us to invite others to share experiences. Words form the backbone of a democracy always challenged by new words, concepts, people and ideas. When we hold an infant, listen to the sound from the air leaving the lungs of a whale surfacing nearby or gaze from the top of a volcano at the rising sun over the horizon, we hope the words we choose to describe what we see, feel and experience bring us back to these magic moments. Words grow into unmanageable bundles as jargon triggers a metamorphosis that confounds and clutters their meaning, turning them into a sesquipedalian mess — that is the practice of using long-winded, obscure words. Words tell tales, show emotions and reach out across time from generations long since past, urging us to pay attention and learn lessons from those who came before. We select rhyming words that sing like chirping birds.

Words make us laugh, offering a salve to suffering and transportation out of intransigence. When we can’t understand something, we name it, giving a word to the unknown that allows us to refer to something in the cosmos, in our minds or buried under our fingernails. Ancient Romans used words to construct fantastic stories about the stars, the heavens and the gods, who exhibited a wide range of emotions that seemed remarkably human. We remember the words from our favorite movies: “May the force be with you” (“Star Wars”) and “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship” (“Casablanca”). And from our favorite presidents, such as John F. Kennedy’s “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country” (1961) or Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself” (1933). We carry with us the words that mean the most from our own lives. We don’t need to check them at the airport when we are in group 9, stuff them in an overstuffed backpack when we go to school

or keep them from getting waterlogged when the evapotranspiration cycle decides to dump rain, sleet, hail or snow upon us. We remember the person so critical to our existence that he or she “ruined us for all other” men or women. The words that elevate, inspire and encourage us to do and be our best allow us to stand straighter and taller, enabling us to wear a cryptic smile that those who know us best perceive immediately. Words give us hope, help us believe in ourselves and allow us to feel connected to someone halfway across the world. We pause from uttering words during moments of silence, as we pay respect with the unspoken words in our minds. We are surrounded by paper thin walls of meaningless, angry, spiteful, hateful words. We can combat those messages with words that reflect the best of us and our country. Words fill the toolbox with the parts to build the world as we choose. As you ponder words that matter at this time of year, I’d like to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.

Lots of Tradition and No Disappointment at Our Thanksgiving Table

T

hanksgiving 2019. Always a favorite holiday for me. What could be bad about an eating holiday? Even better, it’s a chance to see my children and grandchildren, because everyone comes to grandma’s house for Thanksgiving. For this I have to give great thanks not only to my children, coming in from various parts of the country, but especially to my children-inlaw. As one of my daughters-in-law Between said not too long ago, “Thanksgivyou and me ing belongs to the BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF Dunaiefs.” What she meant by that is her family hasn’t seen her at Thanksgiving since she married into our family. She automatically

plans on coming here to Long Island for the holiday, as do my other two daughters-in-law. For that I am hugely grateful. Of course, for that monopoly I have had to give up other holidays to the other sides of the family, and I have done so cheerfully. We have worked out this arrangement amicably and made it into a rich tradition. What happens at my dining room table on Turkey Day is not just the consumption of the usual Thanksgiving fare but also in turn the sharing of experiences to be thankful for over the past year. In this way, I get to catch up on what my offspring and their offspring have been up to, and they hear what is important to each of them. Lest it should become too ritualistic and burdensome, I suggested one year that we could skip it, but they wanted to tell their stories. And I certainly wanted to listen. So how will this year be different from the others? I eagerly await the individual particulars but, from my perspective, one difference is consideration of the food. There was a time when I just

presented the turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes, greens and a salad, and that was dinner — to be followed by ample portions of pumpkin pie. I probably don’t have to tell you that those innocent days are gone forever. My first clue that the Thanksgiving universe was changing came when my young children took me aside before the holiday one year and begged me to be understanding of what they were about to confess: They didn’t care for turkey. Wow! That was a shock to me because I prided myself on cooking the perfect turkey each year — roasted to a golden brown, yet not dried out even in the white meat. After the few minutes it took me to recover, I gamely said, “All right, I will make a couple of chickens instead.” That solution was received with enthusiasm. But that was not the end of that story: I cooked the chickens to a yummy golden brown, but I also made half a small turkey for any of the traditionalists who might be dining with us, and

because I adore leftover turkey and stuffing the next day for lunch. Comes Thanksgiving Thursday, the table is set, there is a fire in the fireplace, the fare is served, and at the end of the meal the chickens are barely touched but the only part of the turkey left is the carcass. “Is there any more turkey?” someone asks. I learned. Now when they tell me that they don’t want to eat a lot of animal protein nor dairy because of lactose intolerance — an inherited gene from my dad — nor carbs, and that I should load up with veggies and salad and certainly barely any pie because they wish to eschew lots of sugary sweets in favor of fruit, I readily agree. There will be a cornucopia of spinach and Brussels sprouts, bok choy, broccoli, cauliflower and bottomless salad and fruit bowls. Those veggies can be delicious steamed or roasted with some nuts and spices. And … there will also be mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, turkey, stuffing and — need I say it? — ample amounts of pumpkin and apple pies. We shall see what is left over this time. Happy Thanksgiving!
