Port Jefferson school board delays budget adoption District hoping for details on Brookhaven, LIPA settlement before finalizing ’18-19 spending plan An announcement by Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine (R) April 3 was supposed to provide clarity, but it has done anything but. Romaine announced during his State of the Town address Brookhaven had reached a settlement with the Long Island Power Authority, which would end the legal battle being waged since 2010 regarding the assessed valuation and property tax bill the public utility has been paying on its Port Jefferson power plant. While in the midst of preparing its 2018-19 budget, Port Jefferson School District officials said in a statement they were caught off guard by the announcement and, as a result, the board of education moved to delay adopting its proposed budget during a meeting April 10. The board will hold a special meeting April 18, when the budget will be presented before a vote to adopt. School budgets must be submitted to New York State no later than April 20. “When you plan to make reductions, you need to know how much to reduce,” Superintendent Paul Casciano said during the meeting. “That is the problem with what the town announced, because essentially what the town announced was that they reached a tentative deal. We don’t know what the terms of that

Superintendent Paul Casciano and board president, Kathleen Brennan, listen to members of the public during an April 10 board of education meeting. agreement are — as a matter of fact, there is no agreement. That’s what we have learned. There are a lot of things that have been talked about at the town level. We have been spending a lot of time trying to find out what the details are.” Town spokesman Kevin Molloy refuted Casciano’s claim that a deal is not in place. “We have an agreement in principle, it has not been finalized or signed,” he said in a phone interview. “The town has sought state aid as part of this agreement. This state aid was not included in the recently adopted budget. We are continuing to work with LIPA for a settlement to this case that is fair for our residents and uses any funds

from this settlement to reduce electrical charges to ratepayers.” The town has not shared details about the agreement in principle publicly. Casciano was asked by resident Rene Tidwell during the April 10 meeting if the district had long-range plans to address the likelihood it will be losing a chunk of the annual revenue the district receives as a result of the power plant’s presence within the district. “I’m deeply concerned that this potentially devastating issue has not been more proactively addressed in the years since it was first initiated,” Tidwell said during the public comment period of the meeting. Casciano strongly pushed back against

the idea the issue hasn’t been a top priority for the board and administration. “The plan is very simple — you cut staff, which results in cutting programs,” he said, though he also put the onus on residents to prepare for possible future tax increases. “There comes a time where it’s not all going to be the school district cutting programs and cutting staff. At some point, taxpayers — and it may be this year — are going to see an increase in their taxes. We don’t assess. The town assesses. The village assesses.” Board president, Kathleen Brennan, also disagreed with the idea the board has not been prepared to deal with the LIPA situation. “I’ve been a board member for eight years,” she said. “Going back those eight years on that board and every subsequent board, this board has addressed the issue head on and has done things that you haven’t read about on our website.” Board member Vincent Ruggiero first motioned to remove budget adoption from the BOE agenda. “Given the uncertainty and the fact we don’t have a clear answer from Brookhaven, we have a week that we can adopt this budget, I’m just proposing that we wait as long as we can for some type of response, although we probably won’t get one, and hold the vote next week,” he said. The public portion of the special April 18 meeting of the BOE will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Communities pass Comsewogue, Port Jeff library budgets BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

ELANA GLOWATZ

Port Jefferson-area residents have weighed in on how their public libraries spend money. The public voted to pass operating budgets for the 2018-19 fiscal year for Port Jefferson Free Library and Comsewogue Public Library April 10. Port Jefferson School District residents passed the PJFL budget with 139 voting in favor and 17 opposed. Comsewogue district taxpayers approved their library’s 2018-19 spending plan 98-12. Port Jefferson Free Library PJFL voters approved a spending plan with modest increases from the 2017-18 fiscal year. The total budget for the upcoming year will be $4,419,062, up less than $200,000 compared to the current year. According to the library’s informational newsletter on the budget sent to residents’ homes, the increase will cost taxpayers roughly 87 cents more per month on average compared to this year. About $60,000 additional dollars for operating expenses will come from property taxes, bringing the total tax levy to $3,099,391. “Once again, we are honored to have such support from our community,” PJFL Director Tom Donlon said in an email. The library is currently in the process of purchasing Kanopy, a streaming video

Comsewogue Public Library CPL needs about $165,000 more in 2018-19 to cover operating expenses compared to this fiscal year. The total budget is $5,720,785, with taxpayers being asked to contribute about $7 more on average annually on top of their existing tax bill.

“We work hard all year to earn the public’s approval and support,” CPL Director Debbie Engelhardt said in an email. “We’re constantly collecting, discussing and putting into play comments and ideas from library members of all ages. Feedback from the community helps us continually move the library’s service program forward. The public’s steadfast support of the operating budget means we can keep learning and growing together. We can introduce new collections and services

while maintaining popular, more traditional ones. This operating budget assures we can continue to give people what they want from their public library.” Kevin Spence, CPL’s incumbent president on the board of trustees, was elected to a new five-year term. He was appointed to fill a vacancy on the board about three years ago, according to the library’s website. The 56-year Port Jefferson Station resident ran unopposed.

VILLAGE Ferry running limited schedule while boat is repaired Temporary ferry schedule BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Port Jefferson departures: TBR NEWS MEDIA

Ferry riders beware. Frequent passengers of the Bridgeportto-Port Jefferson ferry have fewer travel options for the time being. The Bridgeport & Port Jefferson Steamboat Company currently has just one of its typical three-ship fleet available, according to Fred Hall, vice president and general manager of the ferry company located in Port Jefferson Village on the New York side of the Long Island Sound. One of the ships, the P.T. Barnum, is out of service due to a bent propeller wheel, and the Park City is also unavailable because of needed repairs. Hall said the wheel of the P.T. Barnum was bent last week when the underside of the vessel hit an underwater piling. The Grand Republic is the only ship left standing. “We wish we could offer a little more convenient schedule, but we only have one boat operating,” Hall said in a phone interview. The company alerted riders of the pared down temporary schedule in a Facebook post April 7. “The ferry company regrets that we must reduce our schedule for the foreseeable future and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience,” the post said. Hall said the plan is to get the P.T.

Bridgeport departures:

The P.T. Barnum, one of The Bridgeport & Port Jefferson Steamboat Company’s vessels, needs a new propeller wheel after it was bent last week. Barnum to a shipyard for repairs later this week — either April 12 or 13 he said — and that he expected the propeller replacement should not be more than a one-day job, and a two-boat schedule would be reinstated in short order. There is no current timetable for the Park City’s return. Service was impacted last weekend, with only two trips departing from Port Jefferson April 7 — one at 5 p.m. and one at 8:15 p.m. Typically 11 ferries would leave from Port Jeff on a Saturday or

Sunday. Five trips were made Sunday, April 8. Just prior to the start of the work week, the company announced again via its Facebook that fewer rides would be offered at least through April 12. Ships will be departing Port Jeff at 6 a.m., 9 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 3:15 p.m. and 7 p.m. through April 12, compared to a usual 10-ride weekday schedule. Only five return trips from Bridgeport, Connecticut are currently offered for the duration of the shortened service as well, with the earliest being 7:30

a.m. and the latest 8:30 p.m. Several Facebook users commented on the two posts expressing frustration with the inconvenience. More than one commenter said they hoped the shortened service would be over soon. The P.T. Barnum has been part of the company’s fleet since 1999. The 300-foot vessel has the capacity to hold up to 120 vehicles and 1,000 passengers, according to the ferry’s website.

COUNTY

Violent crime, overdoses down; drug seizures up so far in ‘18 BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Suffolk County is off to a safer start in 2018. Violent crime, drug overdoses and fatal motor vehicle crashes are all trending in the right direction in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the same time period last year, according to data announced April 4 by then Suffolk County Police Department Acting Commissioner Stuart Cameron. Geraldine Hart, the county’s first female police commissioner, took the helm and officially began her tenure, according to Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D). Homicides, rape, robbery and aggravated assault combined, dropped almost 19 percent when comparing the first three months of 2018 to the same period in 2017, according to the department. During the first quarter of 2017, 17 people were injured or killed by gunfire in Suffolk County. Nine people have been injured or killed by gunfire in 2018 so far, representing a 47 percent decrease. Drug overdoses during that time period have also dropped 42 percent, according to SCPD, citing a 25 percent increase in narcotics-related search warrants so far in 2018. During those searches, detectives arrested 155 people and seized 43 guns, police said. In 2018, 871 grams of heroin have been seized in Suffolk County and

Graphics by TBR News Media 3,732 grams of cocaine, representing 189 percent and 724 percent increases respectively compared to January through March 2017. “The statistics in the first quarter of 2018 show impressive results which are reflective of the hard work done by the men and women of this department,” Cameron said, adding that the encouraging statistics also came despite a 17 percent reduction in overtime costs. Bellone was complimentary of the police department in light of the announcement of the statistics. “Once again, the hard work of the men

and women of the Suffolk County Police Department has led to the lowest levels of crime in recorded history,” he said in a statement. “Not only does this reaffirm that our crime-fighting strategies are working, we are doing this in the most cost-effective way possible.” Despite the positive countywide signs related to violent crimes, the 6th Precinct is not yet enjoying such a trend in 2018. This year to date, 36 violent crimes have occurred, compared to 31 in 2017’s first quarter. Specifically, more aggravated assaults and robberies have been

committed in 2018 than in 2017. Cameron also touted a 25 percent first quarter decrease in fatal motor vehicle crashes and an 11 percent reduction in crashes resulting in injuries. “These results reflect the department’s increased focus on traffic enforcement, the incorporation of an effective intelligencedriven model to traffic enforcement and the department’s new Alarm Management Program, which has freed up patrol time to allow for increased enforcement,” a press release from the department said.

Tips for safe boating from the USCG Auxiliary BY HERB HERMAN

Boating Courses •U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary: Local flotillas offer a variety of safety classes, including basic/introductory boating courses and safety courses, navigation, sailing and personal watercraft safety, among others. The Port Jefferson Flotilla offers a range of boating safety courses. •U.S. Power Squadron: Offers a wide range of boating courses. •American Boat Operators’ Course: Offers online boating safety courses with online certification tests for a number of states.

METRO

Insurance companies recognize that a defensive driving course will make for better automobile drivers. So why not a defensive boating course for the New York State boating community? Perhaps marine insurance companies will give boaters a break in the same way that they discount premiums for drivers who take defensive automobile driving courses. The states of Florida and Kentucky already have such courses, which give the same benefits as defensive driving courses. We all know that pleasure boating can be great fun, as well as dangerous. In many ways, boating is comparable to driving. Both boats and cars require that the driver pay keen attention and have a strong sense of “situational awareness.” In both cases, we should be cognizant of our surroundings, and to other cars or other boats. In fact, it can be argued that pedestrians for cars are analogous to paddle boaters for powerboat drivers. In boating as in driving there are “rules of the road,” the breaking of which can lead to vehicle damage and in the worst cases loss of life. We have airbags and personal floatation devices. There are very high frequency radios for boats and cars have horns. Driving under the influence clearly applies to both driving cars and piloting boats: The practice is dangerous and the penalties can be severe. It is becoming more common to read about high-speed boats crashing into other boats or breakwaters, where a driver is “boating under the influence.” Texting while driving is particularly dangerous, whether in a car going 30 mph or in a speed boat flying through the water at 30 mph. But the analogy fails when we compare road maps to nautical charts. While road maps restrict us to clearly narrow paths of driving, charts for boats allow “freedom of expression” on the part of the boat driver. On the other hand, there are limits for boaters as well, being greeted with signs indicating “no wake,” and on charts indicating

Like rules for the road, rules for the open water are in place to keep motorists safe. rocks, wrecks, buoys, marked swim areas, etc. In fog, one drives cars slower and puts on fog lights, whereas on the water radar is used together with a bell or horn while carefully listening for other boats. Defensive boaters generally adhere to “rules of the road” and International Maritime Organization’s COLREGs, or Conventions on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, established in 1972. These rules are very real regulations promulgated by the United States Coast Guard, which must be observed by both pleasure boaters and professional captains. These rules refer to collision avoidance regulations, which are considered to have legal basis just as automobile traffic laws determine right and wrong in courts of law. To obtain a captain’s license you must know these regula-

tions by heart; they are the traffic laws on the water, whether on a river, lake or at sea. Boating accidents occur too commonly, making one wonder why licensing is not required of boaters. More recently, in fact, minimum operational documentation is required for boaters, whether using a stand-up paddle or piloting a 60-foot yacht. Courses do exist, and most states demand some knowledge of the nautical rules. A variety of organizations offer certified courses. For example, the USCG Auxiliary Port Jefferson Flotilla offers a range of study programs, including America’s Boating Course and Suddenly in Command, aimed at a passenger should the vessel operator become disabled. Herb Herman is the flotilla staff public affairs officer for the 1st Southern District of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.

•Boat/U.S. Foundation Courseline: The Courseline is a searchable database of current boating safety courses around the nation. •BoaterExam.com: Offers online boating safety courses with online certification tests for a number of states. •Boatsafe: Offers an online Basic Boating Certification Course approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, and a Coastal Navigation Course. •PWC Safety School: Offers online courses and certification for PWC operators in several states •State Courses: Many states offer boating safety courses.

New York State regulations to remember this boating season Effective May 1, 2014: All indviduals born on or after May 1, 1996, are now required to successfully complete an approved course in boater education in order to operate a motorboat. Approved courses include those offered by NYS Parks, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary or the U.S. Power Squadron. Individuals less than 10 years of age may not take this course of instruction. Certain allowances to this law have been made for visitors to New York, persons renting a boat from a livery and persons purchasing a new boat for the first time. Life jacket law for children under 12: Any youth under the age of 12 on boats 65 feet or less in length must wear securely fastened U.S. Coast Guard approved personal floatation device of appropriate size. It does not apply if the youth is in a

fully enclosed cabin. Cold weather boaters — Personal floatation device laws: Anyone underway in a boat less than 21 feet in length anytime between Nov. 1 and May 1 must wear a securely fastened life jacket. This includes paddle boats and motorboats. Personal watercraft operators must: •Wear a U.S. Coast Guard PFD. •Carry a U.S. Coast Guard approved visual distress signal. •Carry a sound signaling device capable of a 2-second blast, audible at least 1/2 mile. •Engine cutoff: if so equipped must be functional and attached to the rider. Personal watercraft operators may not: •Operate a PWC under the age of 14. •Operate in excess of 5 mph within 100 feet

of shore, a dock, float or anchored boat. •Operate within 500 feet of a marked swim area. •Operate between sunset and sunrise. •Operate in a reckless manner and carrying more passengers than is recommend by the manufacturer. Mandatory education requirements for PWC operators: New York requires that anyone operating a PWC complete an approved course in boating safety or otherwise be accompanied, on board, by someone 18 years of age or older who is the holder of an approved boating safety certificate. Certificates are required to be carried at all times when operating the personal watercraft. Water skiing: On the navigable waters of NYS, any vessel towing a water skier,

parasail or other similar device must have on board, in addition to the operator, an observer who is specifically charged with watching out for the person towed. The observer must be at least 10 years of age. Waterskiing and similar towed activities are limited to the hours between sunrise and sunset, provided that visibility is not reduced. Anyone towed by a vessel must wear a securely fastened U.S. Coast Guard approved PFD. This includes those on water skis, inner tubes, parasails, inflatable devices, to name a few. The preferred PFD for these activities is the type III specialpurpose device as it is impact rated, form fitting and generally affords better visibility for the skier. Remember the skier is considered a passenger and is to be counted against the maximum passengers allowed. Exceeding that number can be considered reckless operation.

The coach attended every meeting between the offensive coaches and the quarterbacks, and Hespos recalled the stature of this respected teacher, noting he was “demanding,” and that he expected all his players to “produce.” “He had an agile memory that knew everything about every player that was on the field,” Hespos said. The Port Jefferson Station teacher threw passes next to future Hall of Famer Bart Starr. One of seven quarterbacks invited to train, he was ultimately cut behind Starr’s backup Zeke Bratkowski. After he left Green Bay, Hespos played for a minor league football organization within the Atlantic Coast League. He was signed by the Jersey City Jets, which had former players that also had professional experience in United States and Canada.

BY RICH ACRITELLI

Tom Hespos, a former C.W. Post quarterback, above, went on to teach business at Comsewogue High School. Below left, he played briefly for the Green Bay Packers under head coach Vince Lombardi, upper left. Like at C.W. Post, Hespos was a key member of his squad and helped it win a league championship. After injuring his shoulder for a second time, Hespos was forced to put his football career behind him. By 1969, he began working at John F. Kennedy High School on Jane Boulevard in Port Jefferson Station. Well before this school received the name Comsewogue Warriors, Hespos coached the Spartans in football, baseball and basketball. In the early 1970s, he was hired to coach football in Sea Cliff for North Shore High School. While this was a long distance from his regular job, this position allowed Hespos the opportunity to coach with his teammates from C.W. Post, who he’d also formed with in a doo-wop group called Spider and the Webs. The group performed in the same venues that also featured The Times and The Duprees. In 1965, they sang at the World’s Fair in Flushing Meadow. Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller recognized the spirit of the group with a certificate. During Hespos’ three years with North Shore, he helped lead the team to three league titles and a county championship. In 1975, Hespos began coaching Comsewogue’s varsity baseball team, which instantly became one of the most competitive teams in the county. By 1982, his program reached the pinnacle of excellence with a 27-4 record and winning the state title. Over seven years, Hespos’ teams, which

won five league titles, a county title ad Long Island crown before the state nod, regularly won more than 80 percent of its games. Following the state win, Hespos left coaching to begin Greenway Lawn Sprinklers, which serviced homes from Port Jefferson Station to Montauk and Orient Point. Hespos’ athletic prowess was further awarded when he was inducted into six halls of fame, including the Hudson County, New Jersey and C.W. Post athletic halls of fame. His 1982 baseball team is also recognized on the Comsewogue Wall of Honor. “They call it coaching, but it is teaching,” Hespos said recalling the words of Lombardi. “You do not just tell them … you show them the reasons.” He said even before meeting his acclaimed Packers coach he was moved to become a teacher from some of his former ones. “I will always remember the coaches and the mentors I had back then,” he said. “The coaches I had at St. Joseph challenged me, motivated me and inspired me.” Hespos moved to Wading River before heading down to Port St. Lucie, Florida, where he still lives. He is a father of two and grandfather of six, and enjoys fishing, playing golf and watching the New York Mets at their minor league baseball complex. Rich Acritelli is a social studies teacher at Rocky Point High School and an adjunct professor of American history at Suffolk County Community College.

Architecture Guide HOME FEATURES: arches, columns, dormers, roofs, windows, classic molding RESIDENTIAL STYLES: Art Deco – Homes built in this style feature geometric elements and a vertically oriented design. California Bungalow – A forerunner of the Craftsman style, California Bungalows offer rustic exteriors, sheltered-feeling interiors, and spacious front porches. Cape Cod – A true classic, Cape Cod homes – square or rectangular one-story structures with gabled roofs and unornamented fronts – were among America’s first houses. Colonial – An offshoot of the Cape Cod style, Colonial homes feature a rectangular, symmetric design, second-floor bedrooms, clapboard siding, and gabled roofs. Contemporary – Unmistakably modern in feel, Contemporary style homes are identifiable by their odd-sized windows, lack of ornamentation, and unusual mix of wall materials. Craftsman – Full or partial-width porches framed by tapered columns, overhanging eaves, and exposed roof rafters differentiate a Craftsman home from the similar California Bungalow. Creole – A front wall that recedes to form a first-story porch and a second-story balcony highlights the Creole Cottage design. Dutch Colonial – German, or “Deutsch”, settlers in Pennsylvania originated the Dutch Colonial style, dominated by a barn-like broad gambrel roof with flaring eaves.

Federal – This style arose amid a renewed interest in Greek Roman culture, as its classical ornamentation around cornices, doors, and windows demonstrates. French Provincial – Balance and symmetry define the French Provincial style, which includes a steep hip roof; balcony and porch balustrades; and rectangular doors set in arched openings. Georgian – Refined and symmetrical with paired chimneys and a decorative crown, Georgian houses were named after English royalty. Gothic Revival – English romanticism influenced this style marked by “Gothic” windows with pointed arches; exposed framing timbers; and steep, vaulted roofs. Greek Revival – Large porches, entryway columns, and a front door surrounded by narrow rectangular windows characterize Greek Revival homes. International – The International style exposes functional building elements, including elevator shafts, ground-to-ceiling plate glass windows, and smooth facades. Italianate – Symmetrical bay windows in front; small chimneys set in irregular locations; tall, narrow, windows; and in some cases towers, typify Italianate houses. Monterey – The Monterey style updates the New England Colonial style with an adobe brick exterior and a second floor with a balcony. National – Rooted in Native American and pre-railroad dwellings, the National style consists of a rectangular shape with sidegabled roofs or square layouts with pyramidal roofs.

BIG RESULTS

Neoclassical – Recognize Neoclassical homes, which exist in incarnations from one-story cottages to multilevel manses, by their Ionic or Corinthian-columned porches. Prairie – Originated by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Prairie style house comes in two styles--boxy and symmetrical or low-slung and asymmetrical. Pueblo – Flat roofs, parapet walls with round edges, straight-edge window frames, earth-colored stucco or adobe-brick walls, and projecting roof beams typify Pueblos. Queen Anne – Emerging in the late Victorian era, the style employs inventive, multistory floor plans that often include projecting wings, several porches and balconies, and multiple chimneys with decorative chimney pots. Ranch – Similar to the Spanish Colonial, Prairie, and Craftsman styles, Ranch homes are set apart by pitched-roof construction, built-in garages, wood or brick exterior walls, siding, and picture windows. Regency – Although they borrow from the Georgian’s classic lines, Regency homes eschew ornamentation. They’re symmetrical, two or three stories, and usually built in brick. Typically, they feature an octagonal window over the front door, one chimney at the side of the house, double-hung windows, and a hip roof. Saltbox – This New England Colonial style gained the Saltbox nickname because its sharply sloping gable roof resembled boxes used for storing salt. Second Empire – A Victorian style, Second Empire homes feature mansard roofs with dormer windows, molded cornices, and dec-

orative brackets under the eaves. Shed – A subset of the Modern style, Shed houses are asymmetric with multiple roofs sloping in different directions, which creates several geometric shapes. Shingle – An American style that echoes the Queen Anne, Shingle style is distinguished by unadorned doors, windows, porches, and cornices; continuous wood shingles; a steeply pitched roof line; and large porches. Shotgun – Tradition says that a shotgun blast can trace a straight path from the front to back door of this long, narrow home. The style is characterized by a single story with a gabled roof. Spanish Eclectic – Taking its cues from early Spanish missions, Spanish Eclectic then adds a dash of details from Moorish, Byzantine, Gothic, and Renaissance architectural styles. Split Level – A Modern style, Split Level design sequesters certain living activities, such as sleeping or socializing. Stick – Decorative horizontal, vertical, or diagonal boards characterize Stick houses, which are members of the Victorian family. Tudor – Half-timbering on bay windows and upper floors, and facades that are dominated by one or more steeply pitched cross gables typify Tudor homes. Victorian – Built during the rise of the machine age, Victorian architecture often incorporated decorative details such as brackets, spindles and patterned shingles.

An overheight vehicle detector installed at an on-ramp to the Southern State Parkway

Shore up oversights in passenger safety

A horrific crash on the Southern State Parkway injured many Huntington High School students when a coach bus slammed into an overpass April 9. The accident could have been easily avoided, elected officials said, and we couldn’t agree more. While we cannot control human error, this should be a wake-up call to re-examine our use of technological safety devices. U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he called for improved transportation safety measures at the very same place, Exit 18 at the Eagle Avenue bridge, where an accident occurred in 2012. As a result, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration advised truck drivers and commercial vehicles that a new GPS system was available to warn of parkways and roadways along their route with low clearances. While installing this commercial GPS system into commercial vehicles was highly recommended, Schumer admitted it was not mandated by federal law. Elected officials presumed transportation companies would voluntarily shell out money to improve safety. Decisions regarding passenger safety should not be left in the hands of private corporations. Federal, state and county politicians need to reconsider legislation that would require this vital, potentially lifesaving equipment on school buses, coach buses, RVs and other tall passenger vehicles. This accident also warrants taking a closer look at those new technologies in the process of being installed on Long Island’s parkways. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced Dec. 5 of last year that $4.3 million in funds would be spent to install overheight vehicle detectors at 13 locations in Nassau and Suffolk counties. His goal was to use stateof-the-art technology to prevent bridge strikes that can be potentially fatal and snarl traffic for hours. These detectors are installed at the top of on-ramps and relay an invisible beam set at the specific height needed to clear the parkway’s bridges. If a vehicle breaks the beam, the device triggers a colored LED message sign to flash a warning to the driver, alerting the truck or bus will not clear the bridge. Joe Morrissey, spokesman for the New York State Department of Transportation, confirmed these detectors have been installed at the Eagle Avenue overpass, but said they are not yet active due to calibration and testing. Morrissey admitted even if the detectors had been functioning, they would not have prevented the accident. They are not set up to scan for overheight vehicles entering from the Belt Parkway, as the coach bus did. Elected politicians and transportation officials made the assumption that because buses and commercial vehicles are not allowed on the Belt Parkway, none would enter the Southern State Parkway from that ramp. Cuomo’s plan to install these vehicle detectors needs to be looked over again to better determine where sensors need to be placed. Additional measures, like notification to highway police when the sensor is set off, should also be considered. These oversights are putting holes in the safety net.

Leave citizenship question off census The addition of a question on the 2020 census relating to citizenship status is chilling in its simplistic attempt to suppress the political influence of Latinos and racially diverse communities by intimidating immigrants and their families. Allowed to move forward, it will accomplish what it is designed to do — instill fear in immigrant communities across Long Island and reduce response rates among this vulnerable population. The provocative addition of this question, in a climate of intimidation advanced by the president and his administration, will force immigrants into the shadows and disproportionately impact representation and federal funding for things like Medicaid and infrastructure across the country and specifically on Long Island where Hispanics and Latinos make up an estimated 17 percent of the population in Suffolk and 15 percent in Nassau. The consequences of undercounting our country’s population, especially in areas like Long Island, could create a disadvantage in representation in the House and create a

DuWayne Gregory disparity in distribution of the $600 billion plus in federal funding. The administration’s argument that it will help with protecting minority voting rights is disingenuous since the government already collects data that can be used to assist with enforcement. In addition, noncitizens are prohibited from voting and there has been no evidence that the fabricated stories that millions of illegals voted in the 2016 election are true. Immigrants are however, guaranteed representation in

the House and by undercounting them they — along with others in areas where they are undercounted — would lose that representation. As of now 16 states and the District of Columbia have filed lawsuits against President Trump and the Department of Commerce, with New York leading the multistate action to block the citizenship question from being included on the 2020 census. The lawsuit notes that the 2010 census failed to include more than 1.5 million minorities. We must not allow the exclusion of a significant portion of this country’s population to go uncounted. As Americans we have an obligation to demand a complete and accurate accounting. Anything less could have far reaching implications that would alter essential information, impacting everything from political representation to key demographic data used by business, government and localities in their decision-making. Ten years is a long time to be making choices based on flawed information.

Breaking the cycle Each year, hundreds of thousands of people are released from jails and prisons throughout the United States. Nearly twothirds of these individuals will be rearrested within three years, perpetuating a cycle of crime and recidivism that impacts public safety, burdens taxpayers and creates generational instability for countless families. This is not surprising given the data: 68 percent of inmates participating in a rehabilitation program at the county jail report they have a close family member that has been incarcerated; 92 percent admit to a drug problem; and 63 percent have a mental health condition. Other common issues include homelessness, employment insecurity and learning deficits. Fortunately, calls for criminal justice reforms have gained momentum throughout the nation, and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are fundamentally in agreement on

many proposals. If the goal of criminal justice reform is to reduce the number of individuals caught up in the cycle of crime, incarceration and recidivism, then there must be a corresponding investment in crime prevention, re-entry and reducing the roadblocks to successful reintegration. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has taken the lead on these issues. His 2018 Criminal Justice Reform Package includes several crime prevention reforms directed toward at-risk youth that I believe would greatly improve public safety in many Long Island communities. The proposal includes expanded after school programs, vocational training opportunities, gang prevention education and comprehensive case management services for immigrant youth, who are often targeted by gangs like MS-13. As corrections professionals, we must also do our part to

improve the way that inmates are prepared to reenter society after serving time in jail and prison. Last month I announced I would soon be implementing a system-wide discharge planning model at the Suffolk County jail that would link sentenced inmates with service providers in their own communities, provide more vocational and rehabilitative programs, as well as connections to faith-based organizations. I will also be implementing a special Young Adult Program aimed at preventing future criminal involvement. By addressing the known behaviors and circumstances that often underlie criminal behavior, and by investing more in crime prevention, I believe we will go a long way toward shutting the proverbial revolving door of generational crime and incarceration.

Confessions of a detested and detestable journalist

H

ello, my name is Dan and I’m a ... journalist. It’s been a few days since my last meeting and a lot has happened since then. For starters, I’ve decided to hate myself. I’m coming to grips with the idea that, as a journalist, I am detested and detestable. I ask questions. All the time. Just ask my wife and kids, although they’re too annoyed with my questions to entertain yours. I have this insane urge to understand and appreciate the By Daniel Dunaief nuance of a word or phrase. I even have a dictionary. Didn’t we burn those long ago? Aren’t we supposed to look for the underlined red words in a document?

D. None of the above

My editors and I also change my words. What you see doesn’t just leap from my fingers onto the page. How are you supposed to know what I’m thinking if I let my ideas develop before shouting them at you? I don’t have a specific character limit. Oh, and I only use hashtags when I’m pushing the button on my phone. Sacrebleu! And I write foreign phrases like “sacrebleu” to express my surprise. Additionally, I absolutely adore alliteration. I can’t help smiling when I think about the movie “Broadcast News.” I know, I know, we’re supposed to hate everything with the word “news” in it, but I grin when I hear Albert Brooks asking, “Pretty peppy party, isn’t it, pal?” I frequently read. Sometimes, I’ll be in a room with a television and I’ll have a book or a, gasp, newspaper in my hands with the TV off. How am I supposed to relate to everyone when I’m not watching TV? And deadlines? They’re so real for

me that I sometimes don’t talk to my wife and kids just before they arrive. I used to work for Bloomberg News — the fastest twitch environment I’d ever experienced. An editor once followed me into the bathroom to find out how long I would be in there because I had a story to write. When I was on deadline at Bloomberg, particularly around earnings season, I would give my wife all of five seconds to share whatever she needed to communicate before I raced to the next story. Oh, and I sometimes make mistakes. That’s horrific, especially when I have to explain how I could have erred. I used to have to write letters reviewing how I blundered; I called them the “I suck because ...” letters. I periodically imagined weaseling my way out of trouble by claiming how tired I was from getting up at 4 a.m. when I learned of a story I’d missed in Europe. That, however, would never fly, because a mistake has no defense; it requires a correction. I also use semi-

colons and colons, which have nothing to do with my bathroom habits. Sure, there are times when someone claimed I made a mistake when, in fact, the mistake was not agreeing with their opinion. That’s not a mistake — a difference of opinion. But, hey, that’s another reason to hate me. I think about whether something is an opinion or a fact. An opinion lives in a realm where people need to repeat it to make sure everyone agrees. A fact can and should stand on its own. It’s hard, when we’re all human, to ignore the pleas of people in power who want journalists and their stories to go away. One of my journalism professors said he tried to limit his friendships so they wouldn’t prevent him from doing his job. That’s tough because I enjoy interacting, even with people who don’t share the same viewpoint. But, wait, I hate that because, ultimately, I’m loathsome and detestable.

Celebrating our 42nd anniversary as Facebook flounders

ecently I received a voicemail message asking me if we were planning to cover fairly a contentious issue currently in the community. The speaker cared deeply about one side, and said he understood that we had friends on the other side of the issue. As a result of those ties, were we going to favor them or, at the least, bury the story in the back of the paper where no one would read it? Forty-two years ago this week, a handful of us started The Village Times in a tiny By Leah S. Dunaief office but with great ambition. We promised to serve the community according to “the highest ideals of a free press.” It was 1976, the bicentennial year. We were well aware of the singular role the press played in the

Between you and me

American Revolution and the sanctity with which the Founding Fathers viewed the press. Today, we acknowledge other forms of free speech and press by putting them all together and calling them “media.” But the press, specifically the printed word on newsprint, will always be where my heart is in this business, no matter that we now have a website, a Facebook page, a Twitter account, a place on YouTube and are called TBR News Media. We’ve gone viral on the internet, with over 17 million views for our story and video dealing with school safety in Rocky Point, and to have that kind of reach certainly impresses me. Nonetheless the printed story, the elegance of crafting exactly the right words to describe a scene or an issue or emotion, laid out efficiently and attractively, and most especially truthfully and fairly on a page, with pictures to drive home the information, gives me enormous professional satisfaction. Words as precision tools are not respected the same way on the more frenetic media. Nor are truth and facts always respected there. Because there is

little or no vetting, some people take advantage of the lawlessness to write the most astonishing things, slanted or even untrue as they may be, and others willingly believe what they read. Right now, Facebook, which was started in 2004, is facing the consequences of publishing unmonitored content presented as news or advertising, as CEO Mark Zuckerberg tries to answer hard questions put to him by the U.S. Congress. Not to revel in another media’s troubles, but everything printed in a newspaper is vetted, even the ads, the sources of the ads and, to the extent possible for facts, the letters. That does not mean everything you might read in our papers is correct. We can and do make mistakes. But those are, or should be, immediately acknowledged and corrected in the next edition. Nor are we without bias, however hard we try. But if we try for a truthful and balanced presentation in every story that we print, to a large extent we can succeed. We reserve our opinions for the opinion pages. At least, so I believe. With such a long track record, I was quite sur-

prised to hear that question on my voicemail. The caller left his number, and I was able to return his phone call. We had a heart-to-heart talk, and that, along with the story we wrote, I trust, persuaded him that we had dealt with the matter fairly. If he were trying to encourage us to lean in his direction on the issue, his strategy clearly didn’t work. Here are some of the other things newspapers don’t do. We don’t compile personal information about our readers and then sell that information to potential advertisers. We don’t even sell the names and addresses of our subscribers, although we have been asked a number of times. Your privacy is not for our profit. We don’t write stories about businesses in order to get their advertising. Our newspapers have never been hacked. But I wouldn’t mind having a couple of their billions. And forgive my pride if I suggest that there is some kind of old-fashioned honor that underpins a good newspaper serving its community. That’s not a sentiment I associate with the internet.
