Toxic Levels of Mercury Found on Northport Middle School Grounds Elevated levels of mercury, an odorless toxic chemical, were detected Jan. 6 in the leaching pool area outside of the Northport Middle School. Three classrooms in the G-wing were closed in response “out of an abundance of caution.” The results of air quality tests in the classroom are still pending. Otherwise, it was business as usual at the school the days following the incident. Parents and some retired teachers have raised numerous ongoing health concerns that they say stem from the chemicals and mold that has been found in various locations on school grounds. The building, they say, should be permanently closed. The incident is the latest issue parents argue that deems the site unsafe for children and teachers. The decision to close a school for air quality concerns falls under the jurisdiction of the school board, according to county and state health agencies. The district has stated on multiple occasions that it has found no evidence of unsafe air or conditions that would justify closure. As stated in an email from Superintendent

The ongoing string of incidences raises serious questions about outside oversight of health standards in school districts. Several families in 2018 filed suit alleging that the district, county, town, state and the county and state health departments alleging personal injury induced by toxic exposures as a result of negligence. That year, the school remodeled its K-wing after toxic chemicals and volatile organic compounds were found in the building. Lawyers representing some of the families did not respond to messages left with their office. Last month, in response to a Nov. 20 TBR News Media article that exposed that the Northport-East Northport School District was in violation of some laws governing petroleum bulk storage, district officials announced that they would move its bus depot and refueling station from its location at the middle school to Cavay’s Building & Lumber Supply on Brightside Avenue. Meanwhile, a petition posted on Change. org called Close Northport Middle School has garnered over 3,050 signatures. Banzer did not respond to request for comment prior to going to print about whether or not the board is discussing closing the school or relocating students.

Nation Long Island Responds to Escalating Conflict Between U.S. and Iran BY DAVID LUCES AND KYLE BARR DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM, KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

The assassination of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani in a U.S. airstrike in Iraq three days into the new year sent shock waves nationally and globally. In response, Iran has threatened to retaliate. For people on the North Shore, it has meant a period of uncertainty and anxiety. As the fallout from the attack continues to make headlines, locals are left wondering what will be the outcome to the posturing and threats from both the U.S. and Iran. Bernard Firestone, a professor of Political Science at Hofstra University, said there has already been conflict between the two nations, including Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ordering attacks on American military targets directly, rather than through allied militias, as it has done so in the past. On Tuesday, Jan. 7, Iran launched missiles at two separate U.S. military bases in Iraq, though officials said there were no American or Iraqi casualties. National newspapers reported the Iranian foreign minister said they had “concluded” attacks on American forces, adding they would Above, mourners march in Iran after Qassim Suleimani was killed in a U.S. airstrike Jan. 3; right, the U.S. military step back from escalating into a war. recruitment office in Selden.

‘We are already in armed conflict with Iran’

The days after the Iranian general’s death have been a roller coaster. Residents opinions are split over whether Suleimani’s killing was a necessary act, or a way of painting a target on America’s back. “I think it was a necessary evil,” said Lake Grove resident Patrick Finnerty. “The man [Suleimani ] was threatening people, threatening us.” During a 2019 Veterans Day ceremony in Greenlawn, Lenny Salvo, a Vietnam War veteran had one message he wanted the public to know: “Stop war.” “For me it’s not about politics,” he said. “All I see is the harm that it is going to do to people.” In the days that have now passed, with tensions escalating and Iran potentially returning to build nuclear bombs, Salvo said his position has changed. He said he’s supporting the president. “If there’s going to be a conflict, it’s better now [than when they have a nuclear weapon],” he said. Groups nationwide are already planning

protests. On Jan. 9 at 3:30 p.m., the North Country Peace Group is planning a protest at the corner of Route 112 and Route 347 in Port Jefferson Station against any further war in the Middle East. If anything, the threat of attack to New York has stirred harrowing memories of 9/11. Almost 20 years later, the memory of that day’s events has filtered down into the blood of those who witnessed it. Port Jefferson Village mayor, Margot Garant, shared memories of that fateful day at the village meeting Jan. 6. On Sept. 11, 2001, the trains were down, cars jammed the highways and the Bridgeport to Port Jefferson ferry was one of the very few means for people to get off the Island. Garant said she remembered cars backed up all the way up East Broadway and beyond for days. At the meeting, she said she will speak with code enforcement and the fire department in case any such crisis should happen again. “It could be a chemical weapon, it could be a bomb, so many things could happen,” the mayor said. “If I’m not thinking about that, I would be negligent … you have a number of people saying they want to take revenge — that’s not normal — you’ve got to be prepared.” The fear of home terrorism isn’t unfounded, though the experts said any kind of terrorism linked directly to Iran could provoke a full-scale war, something they don’t want. Firestone said that if there were to be terrorist-type attacks, it will more likely be launched at allied or American targets in the home region. Though statistics say one is more likely to get struck by lightning than be involved in a terrorist attack, people from New York City and Long Islanders have a unique view and anxiety about any such attack. After the birth of ISIS in Iraq and Syria, the western world saw a slew of what was considered “lone wolf” terrorists, or people who conduct violence without the direct support and resources of any one group. These, Fritz said, are less likely in this case, since there is no one specific ideology such as seen with ISIS calling for such attacks. Much depends on what Iran’s next step will be, experts said, and though a full-scale conflict is unlikely, Fritz said it begets people to be informed and to ask questions of one’s local elected representatives. “Stay informed, but don’t turn this into something all-consuming,” he said. Leah Chiappino, Rita J. Egan and Donna Deedy all contributed reporting.

Lawmakers and Vietnam Vets Continue Liver Fluke Battle BY DONNA DEEDY DONNA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Before Vietnam vet Jerry Chiano of Valley Stream died in 2017 after battling a rare form of bile duct cancer, he fought to raise awareness by urging Vietnam vets to get tested for liver fluke exposure. The tiny worm, found in Southeast Asia, can be transmitted to humans after they eat raw or uncooked fish. The parasite lives in the biliary system and is the known cause of bile duct cancer. “It’s such a crazy disease,” said Chiano’s daughter, Jennifer Paglino. “My father wanted other people to know about it, so they’d get the treatment and benefits they deserve.” Chiano’s awareness campaign garnered the support of researchers at the Northport VA Medical Center, who concluded that same year in a pilot study that one in four local Vietnam vets who ate raw or uncooked fish while deployed were exposed to the parasite. U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) sounded alarms in late December, stating the study remains largely unused. He’s urging the VA to look seriously at the issue and Northport VA’s work, noting that benefit claims for the disease have increased sixfold since 2003, while 80 percent of the claims submitted in 2015 have been denied. The VA is conducting the Vietnam Era Veterans Mortality Study, a national effort that will look at data from everyone who served in the military during the Vietnam era, from Feb. 28, 1961 through May 7, 1975, and compare mortality rates for all ailments, including bile duct cancer. Results for that study are pending. The agency did not say if that study would dictate whether or not bile duct cancer is considered a service-related disease. Representative Lee Zeldin (R-NY-1) said he hopes the VA’s new large-scale research mission “will pave the way for infected veterans to receive the treatment they have earned.” Schumer is demanding that the Northport research be used. He noted that the situation raises questions about the VA process for acknowledging service-related illnesses and how its researchers use the statistically based science of epidemiology, which links exposure to disease. The VA website clearly states that liver fluke exposure can cause bile duct cancer. Yet, a VA spokesperson said in an email that the Northport research is flawed, while discounting the risks. “The VA is not aware of any studies that show that bile duct cancer occurs more often in U.S. Vietnam veterans than in any other group of people,” he stated.

Schumer pointed out how the VA initially found in 2009 limited evidence to suggest that exposure to Agent Orange and other herbicides during the Vietnam War caused Parkinson’s disease. Months later, it reversed its decision and added the disease to the list of covered conditions connected to exposure to herbicide agents. Schumer and the entire Long Island congressional delegation — Zeldin, Tom Suozzi (D-NY-3), Peter King (R-NY-2) and Kathleen Rice (D-NY-4) — have urged the VA to study the issue. “Local vets, some of whom are already sick, need reassurance that these — Chuck Schumer studies lead to answers on servicer e l a t e d health claims, while others have passed away while fighting for awareness and VA testing,” Schumer stated. As the VA embarks on another large-scale research mission on toxins and environmental exposure, Schumer underscores the importance

‘Local vets, some of whom are already sick, need reassurance ...’

of using the Northport data. “We have samples, antigen markers and more; there’s good stuff here from this smaller study, but it is largely sitting on a shelf, as we are here today to say: use what’s useful,” he said. However, the VA bluntly states: “No future VA studies will utilize data from the Northport VA Medical Center’s pilot Liver Fluke study ...” In an email, the VA spokesperson explained that the Northport VA liver fluke study relied on a test used in Asia, where the disease is prevalent, which is not FDA approved. It also noted, among of things, that the Northport VA study lacked control groups. Plus, he said, none of the patients who tested positive for liver fluke exposure actually suffer from bile duct cancer. Gerald Wiggins a Vietnam vet from Port Jefferson Station took part in the Northport VA liver fluke study and was one of 12 veterans found to have been exposed to the parasite. He does not have bile duct cancer, but he said he had two bile duct cysts removed in September 2017 at Sloan Kettering. The disease, he said, is a ticking time bomb. He can’t understand why the government isn’t supporting veterans. At 71 years old, he said its late for him. But he believes every veteran who served in Southeast Asia and areas prone to the

parasite should be tested. “Ten people came down with Zika virus in Florida and within two weeks the federal government gave the $600 million to fight it,” he said. “As a vet, I laid my life on the line and got nothing.” He submitted a VA claim, which he said was denied. His other insurance picked up the tab. George Psvedos, an infectious disease specialist and a Northport VA physician, conducted the study. The Northport VA was unsuccessful in gaining clearance for an interview from the VA. But, as noted in his research conclusion statement, his study was the first to show evidence of exposure to liver fluke in U.S. soldiers deployed in Vietnam. He called for more research to examine the link between a Vietnam exposure and the likelihood of veterans developing bile duct cancer. Currently, no validated test for liver fluke infection is available for clinical use in the United States, according to the VA website. And the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is not recommending serological testing for exposure, the VA said. The Northport VA said that if veterans express concerns or symptoms of bile duct cancer, the VA screens them right away. Meanwhile, the prognosis for bile duct cancer is poor, with a 30 percent five-year survival rate, according to the American Cancer Society. As for Chiano, he ultimately died of an esophageal bleed, his daughter said, caused by throat cancer induced by exposure to Agent Orange. “He thought he was going to die of bile duct cancer,” said Paglino. “We thought [his dying of Agent Orange exposure] was his way of making sure that my mother received VA benefits after he died.” Survival benefits for veteran’s families are extended when a veteran’s disease is considered service related. Veterans enrolled in VA health care are eligible for VA-provided cancer care, the agency said. “VA encourages all veterans who feel their military service has affected their health to submit a claim, which will be adjudicated using the latest scientific and medical evidence available,” said VA spokesperson Susan Carter. Suozzi is also still following the issue. “At minimum, we owe Vietnam veterans answers on whether they were exposed to cancercausing parasites while serving, and the Northport VA’s study nearly two years ago was an important step in confirming that,” he said. “This data could prove instrumental in ensuring affected veterans are taken care of nationwide. I strongly urge the Veterans Administration to include this important study in their future research or, at least explain in detail why they will not.”

State’s Bail Reform Bill Causes Controversy in Suffolk County Sheriff, Corrections Officers Say Judges Need Discretion BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Depending on who you ask, New York State’s new bail reform is either halting an institution that punished the poor, or it is allowing alleged criminals to return to and terrorize local neighborhoods. Back in 2018, after Democrats gained control of both state legislative houses, bail reform became a priority issue for multiple Dems in the State Legislature, with the bail reform coming in as an addendum to the state budget bill. The reform forces judges to release alleged perps without bail for multiple misdemeanors and what are considered nonviolent felony charges. Over the last few months, on judges’ orders, jails across the state have been releasing inmates who fall under the list of bail-less crimes. In an interview Monday, Sheriff Errol Toulon Jr. (D), whose office oversees the jails in Suffolk County, said approximately 225 inmates have already been released from Suffolk custody over the past several months under the new bail reform. This comes after court orders from judges across the state. He added there is another expected 10 to 15 inmates that will be released this month. Proponents of bail reform have long argued the previous system effectively taxed poor defendants for accused crimes. They argued that

people and their families who could not afford bail would languish in jail until their court date, such as the case of Bronx teenager Kalief Browder, who was stuck in Rikers Island prison for three years, unable to pay the $3,000 bail price until 2013 when he was released due to lack of evidence. He later committed suicide. Bail costs can range from a few hundred to tens of thousands of dollars and are determined by individual judges. People can also make use of a bail bondsman, but fees for those can still be several thousand, plus the money upfront to ensure a person meets their requisite court dates. A report by John Jay College of Criminal Justice of the originally proposed bail reforms said that if enacted reforms were around in 2018, there would have been 20,349 more individuals in New York City released without bail, a cumulative amount worth nearly $200 million to the state. In 2018, 105,161 cases resulted in pretrial release without bail. Leading state Democrats have said the reforms are long overdue, and specifically target nonviolent offenses. Advocates pointed out that poor people unable to make bail can easily lose jobs if they’re not available or stuck in jail, and that those who have to pay for bail on a limited income, even for minor offenses, might be forced to use funds they would have used for rent or even food. Criminal justice reform advocates say the critics are unnecessarily stoking fears. In a statement, Donna Lieberman, executive director of the New York American Civil Liberties Union, said the new reforms are just a step on the path toward overall prison reforms. “Thousands of New Yorkers who are presumed innocent of the misdemeanor and nonviolent felony charges they face will no longer be forced to sit in jail awaiting trial,” her statement read. However, the law enforces no cash bail for several offenses that critics have called overtly aggressive. James Quinn, Queens assistant district attorney, released a list of laws judges cannot set bail to, including aggravated vehicular

manslaughter, several types of drug sale crimes and even lesser counts of arson. Toulon said he has disagreed with the new bail reforms, especially over the list of crimes people are made to be released. He mentioned one inmate who was just recently released on a partially secured bond of $40,000 out of a $400,000 bail order, without a bail bondsman. The individual, he said, had been accused of rape in the first degree of a child, and had a past history of sex crimes. He said any sort of new bail legislation should give judges more jurisdiction over determining bail. “The biggest thing with this legislation is to give judges back discretion — they can look at criminal history, if they are mentally ill or have a serious substance abuse issue,” he said. State legislators are divided on party lines over the new bail reform. A delegation of Republican state reps from Long Island gathered Dec. 31 to voice their opposition. State Sen. John Flanagan (R-East Northport), the senate minority leader, called the new law “unconscionable,” adding the opposing party has “abandoned crime victims, law enforcement and the public in favor of criminals.” The delegation noted two criminal cases including one where a woman allegedly assaulted three Jewish women, just one of several during a citywide spree of anti-Semitic attacks during the eight days of Hanukkah. She was arrested again the following day for another assault charge. The law allows for no cash bail on offenders who commit assault without serious injury, and the new bail laws have been enforced since late 2019. State Sen. Ken LaValle (R-Port Jefferson) said the new law goes against common sense. “Judges should have discretion in weighing the potential danger of releasing someone who could have violent tendencies or constitutes a real threat to our community,” LaValle said. Law enforcement groups have also vocalized their frustrations with the bill. Louis Viscusi, union president of the Suffolk County Correction Officers Association,

said the law doesn’t just force cashless bail for nonviolent offenders, but for drug dealers, sex offenders and gang members. He added he saw Suffolk County actually using the system in the way it was meant to, with the county corrections facility including 24-hour medical care and a space for drug and alcohol addiction. Within the facilities in both Yaphank and Riverhead, he said, inmates could come down from their high and make more informed decisions once or if they are released on bail. Without it, those same people might be out on the street making the same decisions that got them arrested in the first place. “A lot of people commit crimes to help fuel that habit,” he said. “At [a corrections facility] they could detox and could make better decisions. This new bail reform removes those options.” For decades, New York judges were supposed to consider only risk of flight when determining bail, not public safety or safety of the individual. The new law encourages a supervised release program, where municipalities are meant to keep in touch with those accused. Toulon echoed Viscusi’s comments, adding his term has focused on giving inmates transferable skills such as plumbing or work with HVAC for when they return to society. He added the new law presents issues for people who may need added protection, such as women who were arrested for crimes, but were subdued in human and sex trafficking schemes. Women who are trafficked are often forcefully addicted to drugs to keep them under control. Proponents of the new law point to New Jersey, which has had a similar bail reform bill since 2017, and which a court report showed that while jail populations waned, people still were showing up for their assigned court dates. Unlike Jersey, New York did not have a threeyear window between when the law was passed and enacted. Though Republican officials have looked to paint the issue as a party split, some Democrats have proposed changes to the existing bail reform law. State Sen. Jim Gaughran (D-Northport), along with Sen. Monica Martinez (D-Brentwood) introduced legislation back in June 2019 that would expand the list of qualifying offenses that judges can determine pretrial requirements, to include assault, manslaughter, sex crimes including against children, terrorism-related charges, all class-A felony drug-related crimes and bribery offenses involving public officials. The bill was introduced but could not be taken up until the State Legislature reconvened on Jan. 8. “When an individual poses a clear danger to public safety, an unbiased judicial expert must have the discretion to choose whether or not to release them without bail,” Gaughran said in a statement back in June.

PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN (Never Known To Fail). Oh, most beautiful flower of Mt. Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of heaven, blessed mother of the Son of God, immaculate virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh star of the sea, help me & show me here in, you are my mother. Oh Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in this necessity. There are none who can withstand your power. Oh show me herein you are my mother. Oh Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. (3 times). Oh Holy Mary, I place this cause in your hands. (3 times). Holy Spirit, you who solve all problems, light all roads so that I can obtain my goals. You gave me the divine gift to forgive and forget all evil against me, and that in all instances of my life, you are with me. I want in this short prayer to thank you for all things as you confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you in eternal glory. Thank you for your mercy toward me and mine. The person must say this prayer 3 consecutive days. The request will be granted. This prayer must be published after the favor has been granted. Thank you again. M.S.

Editorial

‘What Is It Good For?’

People are scared. You hear it walking down the aisle in the supermarket. You hear it in chatting with co-workers. You hear it with your relatives at the dinner table or over the phone. With the threat of war looming, everybody everywhere wants to know: Will we be safe? What’s going to happen next? After President Donald Trump (R) ordered the assassination of the Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani last Friday, Jan. 3, the world has been reeling in a vortex of panic and debilitating fear. Iran has said there will be retaliation, and the president has said he will respond to the response. That rhetoric has escalated, with Iran canceling all hopes of a nuclear deal and Iraq moving to remove all U.S. troops from its country. Meanwhile, Trump has said he would even consider bombing cultural sites in Iran as a response — something the International Criminal Court has called a war crime in the past. As Iran held a funeral for the slain general, with many thousands of mourners in the streets shouting “death to America,” the Pentagon has asked amphibious forces to be ready to support ground-based operations in that country. War, huh, what is it good for? The nation’s armed forces stand ready and, for what seems like only an eye blink from the last war, young men and women may yet again be asked to serve overseas. One of our reporters encountered a young recent high school graduate at the checkout register in a local grocery store who recently signed up to serve in the military. What was his opinion of the situation? He shrugged his shoulders and said, “I don’t know.” After a pause, he added, “We do what we have to do.” In June of last year, CBS TV’s “60 Minutes” ran an interview by Lesley Stahl with 99-year-old Ben Ferencz, the last living prosecutor of the Nuremberg trials. He was also at the head of establishing the International Criminal Court at The Hague in the Netherlands. Ferencz fought in World War II and had seen some of the bloodiest battles of the Western Front, including the Normandy Invasion and the Battle of the Bulge. During the interview with “60 Minutes,” he gave a very specific opinion on war. “War makes murderers out of otherwise decent people,” he said. “All wars, and all decent people.” Whatever your opinion, whether Suleimani had to die to protect American lives, or whether the U.S. has committed itself pointlessly to another potential war in the Middle East, the common feeling is anxiety. We at TBR News Media feel the best way to live in such times is to ultimately stay informed. We ask people not to jump to conclusions. Take the time read the news and watch TV with a critical eye. Avoid posting rumors, propaganda or unverified info to Facebook and other social media sites. Perhaps something worse than being uninformed is misinformed, or to be purposefully led astray. Rely on facts that are verifiable to its original source. Consider the opinions of people with first-hand accounts, or named reliable sources with expertise. Some people like using fact-checking sites such as Snopes.com. We also suggest reading Glenn Kessler’s fact-checking blog in the Washington Post, both of whom are largely known for being nonpartisan. Please, to all our readers, stay informed, stay aware and stay safe.

Letters to the Editor An Open Letter to Northport Superintendent Rob Banzer As I was explaining to you yesterday morning, gases from the soil escape to whatever is above it through soil vapor intrusion!!!! A concept that I explained to you and the BOE when I was on the board and requested soil testing two years ago!!! But I was shut down, yet again, by you, Andrew Rapjieko, David Stein, Lori McCue and Donna McNaughton. David Ambro told me that I should be ashamed of myself!!! You make a point of emphasizing [in your letter to district families that the mercury contamination was found] OUTSIDE of the classroom. Are you, David Stein and anyone else on the board who thinks Northport Middle School should still be occupied by vulnerable children and staff so naive to think that mercury (as well as all of the other toxic chemicals that will be found, most being ODORLESS) resides in the soil ONLY OUTSIDE of the classroom? Whomever is STILL of that mind-set is seriously misguided and obviously has not done their research. Do you think a leaching cesspool located directly beneath G-51 will not have contaminated soil directly beneath the classroom as well? The only reason it hasn’t been found YET is because it hasn’t been tested for. Do you think whatever chemicals located in the soil OUTSIDE of the school have not migrated to the soil under the school finding their way INTO THE CLASSROOM THROUGH SOIL VAPOR INTRUSION?? Vapor intrusion (VI) is a process by which chemicals in soil or groundwater

— especially volatile organic compounds (VOCs) — migrate to indoor air above a contaminated site. Vapors in soil gas are shown to enter buildings through cracks in the foundation and openings for utility lines. ... Vapor intrusion occurs when there is a migration of vapor-forming chemicals from any subsurface source into an overlying building. Do you think its safe to continue to subject NMS occupants to carcinogenic chemicals and heavy metals that cause irreversible catastrophic illnesses while the sampling and testing continues???? Soil-gas sampling measures the gas contained in the interstitial spaces of the soil, as opposed to directly sampling the soil matrix, above the water table. ... Subslab soil-gas sampling, where samples are taken though holes in buildings concrete slabs, is used to determine the potential for vapor intrusion. REMEDIATION MUST OCCUR after the source of the contamination is determined and BEFORE the building can be occupied. The community backlash is going to get much, much worse when the mold results come in. What will you do then? Remove the students from those affected classrooms? If so, you are continuing to maintain a reactive stance which is absolutely unacceptable!! If you were truly acting with “an abundance of caution” (which is seriously getting old, as is “not our finest hour”), you would remove the students and staff, test, determine the source and REMEDIATE!!

If you and the board of education do not move forward in this manner immediately, you all should resign from your current posts and be replaced with individuals who truly care about the health and safety of the students and staff and are qualified to make the appropriate decisions. That is obviously not you!! Move the sixth-graders back to their home schools and move these seventh and eighth-graders to East Northport Middle School. You have the solution right in front of you, staring you in the face, daring you to make the appropriate decision, FINALLY!!! JUST DO IT!!! I look forward to reading this letter publicly [at the Jan. 9 BOE meeting]. As an FYI, I will also be mentioning your FERPA VIOLATION of four students in August of 2018, when you disclosed personally identifiable information to David Ambro who printed that information in the Observer. I believe the 4-week deadline for your response and corrective action is quickly approaching. Again, not your finest hour. I seriously wonder what is wrong with all of you when you make such repulsive and inappropriate decisions regarding our students. Shame on you!!!! Anyone who reads this, feel free to forward and post on social media. Please come to the BOE meeting today [Jan. 9] at 7:30 p.m. Come early to get a seat as it will be a packed house!

Help Us Overturn Citizens United January 21 will be the 10th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision in Citizen’s United v. FEC. In the ensuing 10 years, that decision has allowed unregulated, unlimited and undocumented dark money to be used in election campaigns, endangering a basic tenet of our democracy, namely the right for each individual citizen to vote based on an informed decision. Citizens United opened the floodgates, allowing unregulated money from corporations and mega-millionaires to have outsize influence on voters in elections. They can spread that influence throughout the country and at every level of government. Its influence can support gerrymandering, voter suppression, the weakening of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and, now, Congress’s refusal to appropriate sufficient

funding to upgrade our election machinery nationwide. It is dangerous, effective and ongoing. The good news is that amendments to the U.S. Constitution to overturn Citizens United have been on the docket in Congress since its inception in 2010. A proposed amendment titled the Democracy for All amendment, by the end of 2019, had over 190 co-sponsors. Move to Amend, a national organization founded to overturn the Citizens United decision, has proposed an amendment titled the We the People amendment, which would say, “Corporations are not people, and money is not speech.” It already has 66 members of Congress sponsoring it. Here in our community, for eight years, members of Move to Amend — Brookhaven have

been alerting our citizens to the dangers of unlimited, undocumented campaign contributions, in talks at public libraries and at Town Council meetings. Effective legislation cannot be developed under the Constitution as it is now written. On the 10th anniversary of this pivotal and democracy threatening Supreme Court decision, please write or call your senators and congress members to support an amendment overturning it. Senator Chuck Schumer: 631-7530978, 202-224-6542 Senator Kirsten Gillibrand: 631-2492825, 202-224-4451 Congressman Lee Zeldin: 631-2094235, 202-225-3826 Rita Edwards South Setauket

Amusing Personal Messages Emblazoned on T-shirts

A

mid the delightful sensory experiences of a recent warm-weather vacation, my wife and I enjoyed an unexpected gift: The words other people chose to share on their T-shirts. The messages weren’t limited to any one age group, as the young and old took time to find phrases they shared with strangers who were enjoying time in warmer weather. D. None A boy, aged of the above about 12, stood in BY DANIEL DUNAIEF a line with a white T-shirt with a message in all-capital letters: “Help I’m on a family vacay.” To round

out the picture, he had a dour and distracted look as he was clearly waiting for other members of his family to catch up to him in line. Another boy about the same age strutted around with a colorful shirt that suggested: “You need me on your team.” In a culture where sports plays such a prominent role in the identity of children and parents who drive children they imagine might one day be making six, seven, eight or nine figure salaries on fields all over the country, that shirt was consistent with the belief in the American Sports Dream. Numerous adults and young adults offered a connection to their favorite sports teams. For one football fan, though, merely sharing the Philadelphia Eagles emblem was insufficient. Near his beloved Eagles logo, he urged his team to “Beat Dallas.” This year, that was especially fitting as the Eagles overtook the Cowboys in the last few weeks of the year to win the NFC East title. I’m not sure if this coupling was deliberate, but a woman’s T-shirt suggested that readers

“Follow your soul,” while her companion wore a Nashville Predators shirt, indicating, at least in the moment, that her friend’s soul may track the hockey team from Tennessee. A young girl, walking next to her father, wore a shirt that suggested that she’d “Rather Be a Mermaid.” Given how desperately Ariel, the Little Mermaid of Disney fame, sang about wanting to escape the ocean, I couldn’t help thinking about the line from the song “Under the Sea,” where the crab Sebastian admonishes her — King Triton’s youngest daughter — that “the seaweed is always greener in somebody else’s lake.” An older African-American couple borrowed from the movies as the man wore a shirt that suggested he was “Straight Outta Money.” The message probably resonated for others who may have blown through some of their travel and entertainment budget for time in a warm climate. Advertising a New England town coupled with a local accent, a woman sported a message that read, “Baa Ha Ba, Maine,” offering a

connection to the Bar Harbor tourist destination along the coast of Maine that is a short drive to Acadia National Park. A young boy urged people on his T- shirt to “Be the Change,” an expression that an actor or actress might borrow to spread a specific message after winning a coveted award for performing their craft. Offering a take on the fine art of putting off responsibilities and chores, a young man wore a shirt that said, “I don’t procrastinate. I delegate to my future self.” After reading so many variations of the theme that the procrastinators club would be meeting some time next week, I enjoyed a refreshing take on the process of setting something aside for a later time. An older man with white hair and a thick white mustache and beard brought along two noteworthy T-shirts: The first celebrated his 80 years, as part of a beach tour, and the second promised that “Beneath this beard is a handsome man.”

Philadelphia: City of Brotherly Love, Culture and History

D

uring the recent holiday break, we took advantage of the free time to visit two delightful museums in Philadelphia: The Barnes Foundation and the Museum of the American Revolution. The Barnes is home of a huge collection of Impressionist paintings, among many other treasures, and the Museum of the American Revolution, not quite 2 years old, is dedicated to telling the story of our evolution from the historic center of America’s founding. The Barnes started as the remarkable personal collection of Dr. Albert C. Barnes. Between Born in Philadelyou and me phia in 1872 into a BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF working class family, he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania medical school and went off to Germany to study chemistry. From his work

there, he made his fortune by co-inventing a silver nitrate antiseptic, called Argyrol, with a German colleague Hermann Hille. Buying out Hille, he ran the A.C. Barnes Company from 1908-29 and in the process started to collect art. Ironically he didn’t much care for the Impressionists until his high school friend and artist, William Glackens, persuaded him otherwise. He sent Glackens off to Paris to buy some paintings, and when the artist returned with 33, Barnes became serious about collecting art and took over the purchasing himself, housing the works at his estate. Barnes started the Barnes Foundation in 1922, a nonprofit cultural and educational institution to “promote the advancement of education and appreciation of fine arts and horticulture.” The foundation oversees the art, and since 2012 the collection has been located on Benjamin Franklin Parkway in a splendid compound that honors both the founder and the masters whose works lie within its walls and in its gardens. There is even a parking lot on the premises that makes a visit so much easier. The Barnes boasts the world’s single largest collection of paintings by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, with 181, and ditto for those by Paul Cézanne with 69.

There are also 59 by Matisse, 46 by Pablo Picasso, as well as art by Modigliani, van Gogh, Seurat and Barnes’ friend, Glackens. Also in the dazzling museum are paintings by Old Masters El Greco, Peter Paul Rubens, Titian and Veronese. There are sculptures, masks, tools, jewelry, textiles, ceramics, manuscripts and one of the most outstanding collections of wrought iron, some 887 pieces, among so many other multicultural offerings. A major exhibition, which sadly will end there this Sunday, Jan. 12, is 30 Americans. Featuring works of many of the most important African American artists of the past four decades, according to the museum’s curator, Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw — herself a famous African American professor at the University of Pennsylvania and a top administrator at the Smithsonian — this collection “explores issues of personal and cultural identity against a backdrop of pervasive stereotyping — of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and class.” The artists include Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mark Bradford, Nick Cave, Mickalene Thomas, Kehinde Wiley and Barkley Hendricks along with 24 others, and some of the paintings are riveting. This is the 10th anniversary of 30 Americans and the first in the Northeast since 2011 when it was in Washington, D.C. Chatting

with other visitors, we learned that many came from some distance to catch up with this exhibit of modern artists and their distinct perspectives. Did I mention that there is also a wonderful restaurant inside the Barnes? This doesn’t leave me much space to tell you about the Museum of the American Revolution, more the pity, which is also handsomely housed in central Philadelphia. Of particular interest is their first international loan exhibition, Cost of Revolution: The Life and Death of an Irish Soldier, which will remain in place until March 17. By focusing on Richard St. George, born in County Galway to Protestant landed gentry and who became a soldier, artist, writer and extensive landowner, the exhibit tells us much about the American Revolution of 1776, the Irish Rebellion of 1798 — and life in the British army, which St. George joined. There are paintings, many sketches that St. George made himself, artifacts and weaponry in a comprehensive display of history from that era. By the way, it is really easy to get to Philadelphia from here on Long Island with only a stopover in Penn Station if one takes the trains. If only for these two gracious institutions, it is well worth the trip.
