Two Halesite firefighters injured battling blaze Two Halesite firefighters were injured and a dog was killed in a house fire during the weekend. Halesite Fire Department responded to reports of smoke and flames at a twostory residence on Bay Drive West in Huntington Bay at about 12:35 p.m. Feb. 3, department spokeswoman Kate Deegan said. Hose Rescue Company 1st Lt. K.C. Anna was on scene first with his son, firefighter Taigue Anna, and reported the fire to dispatch. Upon arriving at the scene, Chief Greg Colonna was advised by neighbors that the building owner was not at home, but had a dog, according to Deegan. The neighbors had attempted to find the pet. The dog was found

later by firefighters during fire operations, but it had perished. There were about 50 firefighters on the scene under the command of Colonna and 1st Assistant Chief Jamie Magerle, who were able to quickly extinguish the flames on the first and second floors, according to Deegan. Mutual aid at the scene was provided by Centerport, Huntington and Huntington Manor fire departments. Two Halesite firefighters were transported to Huntington Hospital for treatment of minor injuries and released, Deegan said. The Suffolk County Police Arson Squad is investigating the cause of the fire. — SARA-MEGAN WALSH

Groundhogs tell conflicting stories BY SARA-MEGAN WALSH SARA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

The snowflakes stopped falling moments before Brookhaven’s famous groundhog offered this year’s prediction — it was a good omen of what is to come. More than 100 residents cheered as the famed Town of Brookhaven groundhog, Holtsville Hal, did not see his shadow, an indicator that spring would come early this year. Conversely, Malverne Mel saw his shadow, calling for six more weeks of winter. Their more famous relative, Punxsutawney Phil, agreed with Mel while perched on a stump in his home state of Pennsylvania. Staten Island Chuck went the way of Hal. Town Highway Superintendent Dan Losquadro (R) was keeping his fingers crossed for an early spring. “I’m happy,” he said. “We love winter here on Long Island. We love the kids to be able to play in the snow, but we don’t want winter to last any longer than it has to.” Hal made his 22nd annual Groundhog Day prediction at the Wildlife and Ecology Center Animal Preserve in Holtsville at 7:25 a.m., as per tradition, according to the master of ceremonies Wayne Carrington. Tradition says that if Hal — or, as he’s known in the town as a throwback to the classic Bill Murray movie “Groundhog Day,” the Great Prognosticator of Prognosticators — sees his shadow when he wakes from hibernation, the community is in for six more weeks of winter. “So he exited the ground, not a creature was stirring and not a shadow was found,”

read Losquadro from a large scroll to the cheers of onlookers. “I cannot tell a lie, my prediction so accurate does not come from the sky. I saw what I saw in a blink of an eye.” Those who attended were treated to free hot cocoa to warm up and celebrate the good news. Both Losquadro and Carrington asked residents to make donations to the ecology center to help support care for its animals and programs. “I don’t know what to wear anymore,” said Carrington. “Mr. Weatherman, and weathermen across the universe, please listen to the groundhog today. Listen to the groundhog, please make it so I know what to wear.” For more information about Holtsville Hal, visit his website www.holtsvillehal.org.

Lupinacci’s appointments spark claims of bias BY SARA-MEGAN WALSH SARA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM The first wave of Huntington Supervisor Chad Lupinacci’s (R) appointments to his new administration has sparked allegations of bias and possible nepotism. Huntington Town Board voted 3-2 to appoint 11 directors to various town departments at their Feb. 6 meeting. The vote was sharply split along party lines with Democrats Councilman Mark Cuthbertson and Councilwoman Joan Cergol raising objections based on the hiring process, or lack of one. “We have 11 appointees and 11 white males,” Cuthbertson said. “If we were looking to recruit an executive team for high school sports, this might be a good start. We are looking to run a diverse and dynamic town. I think we need to have at least considered other candidates.” The supervisor originally sought to hir or confirm those individuals he selected at the Jan. 23 town board meeting. He pulled the action from the meeting agenda, delaying two weeks after protests from Cuthbertson and Cergol saying they had not had adequate chance to vet the candidates. “As I’ve considered my vote for today, several key questions have surfaced in my mind,” Cergol said. “Chief among them was who else was up for these jobs? How wide of a net did we cast to fill these jobs? Were there efforts to seek diversity in the hiring process?” Lupinacci said the candidates’ résumés were received through the New Direction Transition Team website launched Nov. 30. The applicant were narrowed down by him, members of his transition team including newly elected Councilman Ed Smyth (R), and town employees before being invited in for an interview. “I think we have an all-star list of appointees that will be heading up each department,”

Lupinacci’s Appointments •John Clark Director Dept. of Environmental Waste Management $120,000 annual salary •Paul Ehrlich Vice chairman Planning Board Unknown compensation

SARA-MEGAN WALSH

Huntington Councilman Mark Cuthbertson and Supervisor Chad Lupinacci Smyth said. Cuthbertson pointed out that several of Lupinacci’s appointments are Republican party members who have previously run unsuccessfully for town offices. Republican John Clark, who lost to Democrat Kevin Orelli for superintendent of highways last November, is the new director of Department of Environmental Waste Management as of Feb. 26. Clark will receive an annual salary of $120,000. Huntington Bay mayor Dominick Spada, who lost to incumbent Suffolk County Legislator William “Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport) in his bid to represent the 18th District, will become the town’s new deputy director of the Department of Maritime Services. Spada will receive $60,000 annually. Richard McGrath, who ran on the Republican line for town board in Nov. 2003, has been appointed as a member of the town’s Zoning Board of Appeals by Lupinacci. “One of the criteria is that if you ran for public office as a Republican, you have a

chance to be a department head,” Cuthbertson said, sarcastically. “It should not be a disqualifier that you were involved in politics. I think people should be involved in politics, and I think there are good people on this list who are involved in politics, but it really lends itself to cynicism about the process.” The councilman said previous administrations had run advertisements for open positions in The New York Times to ensure a large, diverse pool of applicants. In addition to the 11 appointments to department heads and town boards, Lupinacci also designated two programs liaisons to existing town employees. Lupinacci said that despite several conversation and invitations, he had not received any résumés for applicants looking to be considered from either of his Democrat board members. The supervisor said he is looking to fill several town positions in coming months and all are welcome to apply. The New Direction TransitionTeam website can be found at www.chad2017.com

Special election set for April 24 for Assembly seat BY SARA-MEGAN WALSH SARA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM A date has been set for a special election to fill the state Assembly seat formerly held by Huntington Supervisor Chad Lupinacci (R). New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced Feb. 5 that special elections would be held April 24 for the two Senate and nine state Assembly seats left vacant after November’s general elections. Cuomo’s announcement came after weeks of speculation whether the governor would hold the special elections before or after the state budget deadline of March 31. “The one good thing is they are not going to leave the seat unfilled until November,” Lupinacci said. “I’m glad it won’t be left unfilled as I think it’s important to get someone in there to represent the 10th Assembly District.” Over the next week, the major political parties will hold candidate screenings and nominating conventions, according to Nick LaLota, Republican commissioner for Suffolk County Board of Elections. There are no

primaries, and the candidates are directly chosen by the party’s political leaders. The selected candidate must be certified with the board of elections by Feb. 15. Independent candidates may petition to get their name on the ballot. LaLota said “the signature amount is high, and the reward is low.” Suffolk County Republican Committee Chair John Jay LaValle will be holding the party’s convention Feb. 12, according to Lupinacci, and he will be part of the process. “We are looking at several candidates, and I will be there most likely at the screening,” he said. “If the party leaders seek my input, I will most certainly be very vocal.” The former state Assemblyman said he’d like to see a candidate who demonstrates an understanding of the issues important to his district, is responsive to constituents’ concerns and is willing to work across the aisle. The Republican Party is in the minority in the state Assembly, and that balance cannot be tipped by the nine seats up for grabs. While the 10th Assembly District has long

‘If the party leaders seek my input, I will most certainly be very vocal.’ — Chad Lupinacci been held by Republicans, the Democrats have a number of potential candidates as well. “We have a couple of people who have expressed interest, as far as I know, but we have not screened anyone yet,” said Mary Collins, chairwoman of the Huntington Town Democratic Committee. The next representative for the 10th district will serve approximately 130,000 residents, according to the 2010 census data, and includes all or parts of Cold Spring Harbor, East Northport, Greenlawn, Lloyd Harbor, Lloyd Neck, Melville, Huntington and Huntington Station.

business owner declined to comment. An investigation by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration into Sinnott’s death led to Antorino & Sons Cesspool and Don Antorino Sewer & Drain being found responsible for safety violations and fined more than $16,000, according to OSHA records. The Town of Huntington and the town’s highway department is cited in the lawsuit for alleged failure to properly repair and maintain the stormwater basin, which caused the ground flooding, and for giving the contractors permits for cesspool work without making sure town, county and state safety requirements were met. Town spokesman A.J. Carter said the town had no comment on the pending litigation. “Each defendant was well aware of the substantial hazards and risks of significant catastrophic harm, injury and death that existed,” reads the Sinnott family’s lawsuit. The Sinnott family sent a request Jan. 24 to newly elected Suffolk County District Attorney Tim Sini (D) to investigate both Edward’s death and the death of laborer Kurt Peiscopgrau, 60, of Northport. Peiscopgrau, an employee allegedly

A Huntington family is seeking $50 million in damages alleging a cesspool worker’s death resulted due to a lack of safety precautions. Huntington resident Edward Sinnott, 59, died in May 2017 while installing a cesspool at a home on Beech Place in Huntington. Sinnott was helping excavate a hole for the cesspool when the ground gave way, burying him alive under tons of dirt and debris. It took first responders more than five hours to recovery his body. Matthew Sinnott, Edward’s son, filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Suffolk County Supreme Court Jan. 26 seeking punitive damages from his father’s employer, other contractors involved in the project, the homeowner, and the Town of Huntington. “The Sinnott family is heart sick over their loved one’s avoidable death and are hopeful that their lawsuit may prevent further deaths in this seemingly unregulated industry,” said Susan Karten, an attorney representing the Sinnott family. The family alleges homeowner Dane

Kouttron knew of both the flooding and cesspool issues he was having on his property, having filed numerous complaints with Huntington town officials about problems with a nearby stormwater catch basin. The homeowner could not be reached for comment. The lawsuit claims Sinnott’s employer, Greenlawn-based Don Antorino Sewer & Drain, allegedly did not provide him or his co-workers with proper safety equipment, like harnesses, while working on the site. The lawsuit names Don Antorino Crane Services, alleging the crane used for excavation “was not appropriate nor safe for use in this capacity, as said crane was oversized, over weight with excessive sized and capacity bucket for a residential cesspool project,” according to court documents. A woman answering the phone for Don Antorino Sewer & Drain and Don Antorino Crane Services stated the company had no comment on the lawsuit. Both companies had been hired by the site’s general contractor, PNZ Inc., commonly known as Antorino & Sons Cesspools, which is also named in the lawsuit. An Antorino & Sons staff member said the

The Benvenuti family of Cold Spring Harbor

CSH firefighters seek help for one of their own Cold Spring Harbor firefighters found themselves in the difficult position of having to rush to the aid of one of their own. Cold Spring Harbor Fire Department responded to a fire alarm at approximately 9:49 p.m. Feb. 2 on Main Street. Upon their arrival, firefighters under the direction of Captain Brendan Fitts were able to quickly extinguish a fire in the closet of the home’s second-floor master bedroom, according to spokesman Steve Silverman. The Main Street home is owned by Adrian Benvenuti, a 15-year member of the Cold Spring Harbor Fire Department and ex-assistant chief. Benvenuti was able to safely get his three young children out of the house during the fire, Silverman said. His wife, Brenna, was not at home at the time of the fire. While damage to the residence was limit-

ed, Silverman said that the Benvenuti family is expected to be displaced from their home for about three months due to water and smoke damage. Lieutenant Daniel Martin, a paramedic with the fire department, launched a GoFundMe page to help raise funds to aid the Benvenuti family. At the time of this publication, more than $4,500 of the $10,000 goal has been raised. Several community members have posted words of encouragement and support on the GoFundMe page including “Cold Spring Harbor strong.” There were several offers of help from both individuals and local business.

BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM A group of lawyers released a report Feb. 5 compiling allegations of sexual abuse of children made against 51 individuals associated with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rockville Centre. Lawyers Helping Survivors of Child Sex Abuse, a national team of attorneys dedicated to representing victims of sexual abuse, compiled and released the list in an effort to raise awareness about alleged clergy sex abuse on Long Island by providing the public with a list of accused abusers and which church they work or worked at, according to a press release from the group. The list includes allegations against several employees of North Shore churches and schools. Times Beacon Record News Media will not link to the report or mention specific allegations against individuals, churches or schools until they can be independently verified. The newspaper is also aware of the presumption that people are innocent until proven guilty. According to the report, called “Hidden Disgrace II,” most of the allegations have not been heard in a court because they were reported after the expiration of statutes of limitations. The report says the allegations should not be considered substantiated claims, but rather public accusations unless otherwise indicated in the report.

In 2003, a Suffolk County grand jury investigated the issue of clergy sex abuse in the diocese and released a more-than 180page report detailing allegations against 23 unnamed priests and actions by diocese officials to conceal abuse. In a section of the Feb. 5 report entitled “Methodology,” it says many of the 51 named individuals in “Hidden Disgrace II” were described but not officially named in the 2003 grand jury report. Some of the 51 named individuals were subsequently identified by survivors and the media following the grand jury report. Others in the report were named by individuals who came forward to share their stories with the law group or media outlets. “The public needs more information about these alleged predators and the churches, schools and communities where they worked,” said attorney Jerry Kristal, of Weitz & Luxenberg, one of three law firms associated with the group, along with Noaker Law Firm LLC and James, Vernon & Weeks P.A. “The Rockville Centre diocese’s silence on the issue has only served the accused abusers and left survivors and local communities in the dark.” An email requesting comment from the diocese communications team was not immediately returned.

St. James nonprofit delivers donated food for big game Miller Place supermarket owner steps up when funds fall short, caters feast for displaced Northport veterans BY DESIRÉE KEEGAN DESIREE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM On the day of the big game, Tommy O’Grady was the real patriot. The owner of Miller Place’s Tuscany Gourmet Market donated food for 107 local veterans to make sure the servicemen and women could enjoy Super Bowl LII. Original plans were to prepare a feast for 40 veterans at the VA Northport Beacon House Homeless Shelter through Veterans For A More Responsive Government, a nonprofit working to increase the public’s awareness of harassment and mistreatment of disabled U.S. veterans. Pipes burst at the Beacon House Jan. 12, according to Todd Goodman, spokesman for Northport VAMC, and the veterans were split up and moved to nine different homes after making plans to watch the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots duke it out. When O’Grady was approached with the change of plans, he didn’t hesitate to alter his. “I have a gifted life, I’m doing well right now. To see people [in need] who put their lives on the line and did their time, it’s not right,” O’Grady said. “For me, to give this to them, it’s the only way to say ‘Thank you.’” O’Grady had been connected with Robert Cornicelli, founder of the veterans nonprofit group, through his childhood friend and Suffolk County Republican Committee Chairman John Jay LaValle. The two grew up in Centereach together, and when LaValle was approached by Cornicelli asking first for help stretching his $540 into food for 40, he knew who to call. “Tommy is the type of guy I’m almost afraid to talk in front of because God forbid you mention somebody is in need, he jumps right on it in two seconds,” the chairman said. “I was so embarrassed to

opened his home to him, providing food and shelter. With the help of LaValle and former Smithtown Supervisor Pat Vecchio, Fajardo earned part-time jobs within Smithtown and Brookhaven towns, eventually becoming an investigator for the Town of Islip. “It’s thanks to those guys that I’m here,” Fajardo said. “When I saw the work [Cornicelli] was doing I immediately hopped on board. It’s a great feeling helping out brothers and sisters in need.” LaValle said seeing the groups of “good guys” come together has been mental therapy for him. “It’s a tough world right now,” he said. “It’s a very hostile world at times. This is something that’s been really rewarding because you learn you may think you have it bad, and you may be whining about something, but it’s very true that there’s always someone out there who has it worse. Now I want to do more to help out.” He pointed to Cornicelli and O’Grady as prime examples of model citizens. “If everyone did what Tommy did, there’d be a lot fewer problems in this world, that’s for sure — certainly there wouldn’t be any world hunger,” he said, laughing. “And what Robert is doing is absolutely wonderful, he deserves a lot of credit.” But on the day of the Super Bowl, Cornicelli called O’Grady the real hero, who donated much more than just heroes. “I never met the guy in my life, and he tells me he’s taking care of the whole thing — it’s unbelievable,” Cornicelli said. “He broke everything down to the exact amount needed to feed the veterans at each location, and it’s an amazing feeling when these guys’ eyes are wide open, saying, ‘This is what we’re getting?’ rather than bagged lunches. It’s refreshing to see guys helping out. Tommy, he’s one of the greatest patriots I’ve ever met.”

SPORTS

Tigers top Walt Whitman for League II title Hannah Stockman finishes with 16 points for Northport, which remains undefeated in conference with one game left BY JIM FERCHLAND League II play did not phase Rich Castellano and his Northport Tigers this season. The girls basketball team took down the Walt Whitman Wildcats on the road Feb. 2 in a 50-42 victory to remain undefeated at 11-0 and claim the league crown. Junior guard Hannah Stockman was the catalyst with 16 points.

Northport 50 Whitman 42

With the Tigers leading 23-19 at the halftime break, the four-year varsity player’s mind was set on taking the title. “From the beginning of the season our goal was to be league champions,” Stockman said. “Tonight, we finally achieved that.” Castellano said he was expecting a close game against Walt Whitman. The last time the Tigers faced off against the Wildcats Jan. 9, Northport won a tight 48-44 decision. “I’ve been playing against coach Dan Trebour for many years and our games are always close,” Castellano said. “They play good defense, we play good defense. Every shot is contested. It’s always close at best.” Stockman and sophomore guard Danielle Pavinelli notched double-digit point totals for Northport. Pavinelli finished with 10 points, six of them coming the third quarter. The Tigers faced an unfortunate scene late in the first quarter when one of their sharpshooters hit the floor hard. Senior guard and four-year varsity player Shelby Maldavir tripped and landed hard on her knee. She didn’t return to the court, finishing with one point. “I felt a little pop right on my knee cap,” Maldavir said. “The doctors looked at it and said it’s not an ACL injury. The best it could be is just a bruise.” Castellano said losing Maldavir, one of his biggest point scorers, was a tough break.

“That hurt us,” Castellano said. “She’s a leader. She’s an outside threat — she hits 3s. But the testament of the team is that you have players to replace. That’s why you have 15 girls on the team.” Northport sophomore guard Kelly McLaughlin filled in for Maldavir. She had five points with two free throws made late in the fourth quarter. Castellano rotated players for different assignments to set them up for success. After Maldavir’s injury, Castellano said he wanted to “go big” and bring in 5-foot, 10-inch sophomore Leah Morawski. When she took to the court, McLaughlin came in to provide inside help for sophomore forward Kerry Dennin, who caught 16 rebounds on the night. “You put all of those little pieces together and it’s an eight-point win,” Castellano said. “We were just a little better tonight.” Walt Whitman’s Meghan Soulias caught fire in the second half scoring 19 of her game-high 23 points in the second half. Twelve of them came in the third quarter — with two threes — where the Wildcats cut the deficit to five. Four other players scored for Walt Whitman, but she was the only player in double figures. “She’s a great player,” Castellano said of Soulias. “We knew that. We know she’s going to get her points.”

Feb. 6. Nick Inman added eight points and 12 rebounds. - Erin Tucker was fouled and made one of two free throws with .5 seconds remaining to give the Harborfields girls basketball team a 30-29 win at Hauppauge Feb. 6. Harborfields took a 29-27 lead on Celia Argiriou’s basket with two minutes left. Hauppauge’s Christina John tied the game at 29 when she stole the ball and converted the layup

with 30 seconds left in the fourth quarter. - Mike McDermott’s 22 points led Harborfields’ boys basketball team to a 46-44 win at home against Hauppauge Feb. 6. Pat Williamson added 10 points. - Sean Walsh scored 15 points and Justin Carrano had nine points, eight assists and seven rebounds to lead Northport’s boys basketball team at home over Walt Whitman Feb. 2.

Clockwise from top, Northport’s girls basketball team celebrates its League II title win; Hannah Stockman moves the ball; and Danielle Pavinelli shoots over traffic. Northport has won more than 20 league titles and 10 county championships under Castellano, who has been at the helm for 39 years. Northport is scheduled to face Central Islip Feb. 9 in the final game of the regular season. Tipoff is scheduled for 6 p.m.

Keeping score Feb. 6

- Alex Heuwetter had 26 points and 13 rebounds to lead Huntington’s girls basketball team to a 6832 home win over Centereach Feb. 6. Nicole Leslie added 10 points and 10 rebounds as Huntington clinched a Suffolk AA playoff berth. - Mehkei Harvey scored 20 points to lead Huntington’s boys basketball team to a 57-47 win at Centereach

Feb. 3

Five Huntington wrestlers qualified for the county championships. Joe Petrone (second place at 99 pounds), Billy Burton (third place at 99), Aedan McDonald (third place at 125), Tazedon Smith (second place at 220) and senior Aidan McCooey (fourth place at 170) will compete at the Times Union Center in Albany on Feb 23 and 24.

Historic Home Charm H

istoric residential buildings and neighborhoods have a certain “je ne sais quoi” that appeals to our real estate dreams.

You’ve seen historical homes on movies and TV. There is something about the architecture, the brick and the tree-lined streets that has us mentally moving in our furniture and imagining bringing groceries into a gorgeous, light-filled space. However, our imaginations have a way of glossing over th less glamorous aspects of historic living. If you are considering life in a historically registered abode, reflect on the following lifestyle features bfore signing on the dotted line. HIDDEN EXPENSES Have you looked into what the real estate taxes are for 2018 Greenshoot Media

your coveted historic home? What about home insurance rates? Both can be automatically high and are above and beyond the sticker price of the home. It is important to carefully go over your finances to ensure you cannot only afford to purchase the home but to keep it. History costs. REPAIRS Having to make repairs to any home is unpleasant, but if your building or home has been designated a landmark or holds a place on a historic register, it can be a logistical nightmare. Many city landmark commissions require tenants to preserve the historic look of a home or building by using as many historically accurate materials as possible, which can get expensive very quickly.

LACK OF MODERN CONVENIENCES Think central air conditioning. Think small closets. Think pre-war co-op with no elevator. On a beautiful spring day, it’s

easy to think, “Oh, this place is definitely worth the sacrifice,” but life isn’t perfect and day-today living is often led through many challenges. There may be less glamor-

ous parts of “living historically” that you are overlooking. Check in with others who have made homes in historical houses. Hearing stories from them can sway your decision. ©99106

Letters to the editor

Be aware: the dangers of vaping

Suffolk schools need good partners There’s a lot of talk about public-private partnerships at all levels of government. If our state officials can strike a deal to benefit New York’s inmates, we think it’s time to negotiate for the benefit of our collective future — Suffolk County students. New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision announced a deal with a private company, JPay, to provide free tablets to approximately 51,000 state prisoners. JPay is a Miamibased company that provides technology and services to help the incarcerated stay connected with people outside prison. The state prisoners will be able to read e-books, listen to music and even have family send money back to them. “The decision by New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision to allow inmates to be provided free tablets is a slap in the face and an insult to every hardworking, law-abiding, taxpaying family across New York State that struggles to provide these same tablets and other school supplies for their children,” said state Assemblyman Dean Murray (R-East Patchogue). We have to agree. To be clear, helping incarcerated citizens develop tools for success upon their release is a worthwhile endeavor for both the individuals and the society they hope to assimilate back into at the conclusion of their sentence. However, if such a deal can be struck for those in jail, we’d like to see the New York State Department of Education at least attempt to negotiate a private-public partnership with technology manufacturers or educational software providers to see if a similar arrangement can be made. It’s no secret that many Suffolk County teachers wind up purchasing basic supplies — crayons, construction paper, glue, markers, calculators and other supplies — for their classrooms out of their own pockets. If a penny of funding for basic staples is coming from teachers’ pockets, more expensive, big-ticket items must also be a problem, despite the passage of the Smart Schools Bond Act in 2014, which was enacted for the purpose of updating technology in schools. Kings Park High School announced it received approval for its state technology initiative in November 2017, one of the first districts on Long Island to do so. It is the first time the district can afford major technological upgrades in 10 years. Let that sink in — the computers, networks and internet capabilities our students rely on are more than a decade old. Suffolk County’s public schools educate more than 235,000 students from kindergarten through 12th grade, according to the New York State Department of Education’s figures for the 2016-17 school year. While this is five times more than our state prisoners, it should not be perceived as impossible. We’d like to see the state education department and our school districts get creative in finding solutions to budgetary problems. School budget season is getting underway and finding and negotiating publicprivate partnerships with some of the large businesses in their backyard could be the solution taxpayers are looking for.

The upsurge in the recreational use of vaping among our youth is nothing short of alarming. The increase of vaping is largely due to the deceptive marketing practices of vape companies and a general lack of information on the fairly recent trend. The risks, however, are significant and teenagers that are vaping are exposing their developing brains to toxic chemicals that can have long-lasting consequences. Raising awareness and providing education is imperative to protect our youth from what may seem to be a harmless fad. Vaping among our high school and middle school students has doubled between the years 2014 and 2016. In 2015, the National Institute on Drug Abuse reported that 30.7 percent of students who vape, move onto regular cigarettes within just six months. Accom-

panying the increase of vaping among our youth are vape shops that seem to be opening up on every corner. With more than 5,500 shops set up across the country, these outlets are strategically targeting our young people to make a profit. With over 8,000 flavors to select from, including dessert and candylike titles, it’s evident that the industry is focused on luring young people into using its products. To add to the appeal, teenagers, and in some cases parents, perceive vaping as a safe option with the notion that it’s simply flavored water vapor. However, what is often not known about vaping is that nicotine is a main ingredient, which has adverse effects on the developing brain. Vaping also involves other toxic chemicals that have been linked to cancer, as well as respiratory and heart disease.

With about a decade into this aggressive effort to replace cigarette smokers, the vape industry has had a level of success in taking hold of our impressionable youth. As parents, guardians, educators and health professionals, let’s continue to join forces in countering this negative influence and guide our youth in a healthy direction. I am working with our Suffolk County public health educators and our school districts to strengthen and build on our resources needed to make a positive difference. As a legislator, doctor and certainly as a parent, I am dedicated to working with our community to address this public health issue.

William “Doc” Spencer Suffolk County Legislator 18th Legislative District

Support for early voting in NYS In the news conference unveiling his 2018-19 executive state budget, Gov. Andrew Cuomo again calls for a plan to initiate early voting in New York State along with same-day voter registration. It isn’t the first time he has called upon counties in New York to implement this plan. Unfortunately, his proposal has gone nowhere time and time again. It is time for that to change. Cuomo’s plan would require counties to offer at least one early voting polling location for every 50,000 residents during a 12-day period before Election Day. The polling sites would be open at least eight hours on weekdays and five hours on weekends, thereby providing multiple opportunities for those unable to accommodate a visit to the polls during their working hours. New York is one of only 13 states to lack some form of early voting. In 2016’s presidential race, some 30 million Americans took advantage of early voting — none of them were from New York. In fact, statistics show that with 60.2 percent of the 231 million eligible voters casting ballots in the 2016 election, an increase compared to the 58.6 percent in 2012, national

turnout was still reduced by approximately 1.5 percent due to low turnout in three of the four most populous states: California, New York and Texas. The six highest-ranking states in terms of voter turnout, according to a report by Nonprofit VOTE, which partners with nonprofits to assist people with participating in voting, all offered same-day voting registration. In addition, unlike voters across the country, residents of New York can only vote ahead of time by absentee ballot if they can offer proof that their profession, business, travel, school work, illness or disability prevents them from getting to the polls. The result of all these obstacles is that voter participation in New York is anemic. The antiquated system that exists due to an unwillingness on the part of the state Legislature to adopt new procedures is hampering the rights of individuals from all walks of life who want to participate in the election process. In addition, counties want assurances that implementing new voting laws — which could cost an estimated $7 million — will not result in another unfunded state mandate. Gov. Cuomo needs to

provide that commitment. The early voting measure, which has been embraced by the state Assembly has unfortunately fallen victim to partisan politics in the state Senate. But modernization of the voting system in New York must be a bipartisan priority to ensure that voters are not disenfranchised. Voting is one of our most cherished rights as Americans, yet voter turnout is rarely what we hope it will be. Not everyone can get to the polls on Election Day or take time off from work to vote. The governor’s early voting proposal will make it easier for New Yorkers to participate in the democratic process. Times have changed, and although some traditions and laws forged in the past rightfully remain in place, others must adapt to changes in societal values, priorities and circumstances. I support the governor in this endeavor and encourage our state lawmakers to do the same. You should do the same.

OPINION

Superheroes are transformed into lightning rods

P

eople spend millions of dollars each year to find compatible friends and dates. The dating sites, the self-help books and magazines and the life coaches ask copious questions about our likes and dislikes and what we need around us. Maybe they are missing a key question that can reveal important yet hard-todescribe details about how we feel about ourselves and the world. That question relates to our feelings for lightning rod figures. Let’s start By Daniel Dunaief with Tom Brady, who just lost his third Super Bowl last Sunday, despite a heroic effort. The quarterback, who has won five other Super Bowls, is a

D. None of the above

legend, is extraordinarily successful and has one of the most impressive résumés of anyone in the game. Indeed, even people who know nothing about football — and I have a foot in that camp — know who he is and have an awareness of his remarkable success. In a country that celebrates victories, however, he doesn’t seem to be high on the national likability scale. I’m sure there are plenty of Patriots fans who disagree and think the world loves their superhero. Sorry, but I’m sure you can find the Brady haters on the internet. Anyway, maybe what causes them to dislike the superstar is the spectacular and well-earned selfconfidence. Maybe it’s the fairy tale life. Then again, isn’t that what we all buy into when we watch Disney movies? Doesn’t his name, Tom Brady, suggests some kind of Disney superhero, who saves the day with perfectly placed passes despite defenses bearing down on him? Then again, maybe, for some his

friendship with Donald Trump is problematic. The president has become an important compatibility filter as well. It’s hard to imagine two people agreeing to disagree calmly about a president who some believe has either saved us from the likes of Hillary Clinton or has created new and deep fault lines in the country. Then there are those people who seem to fall into and out of favor. Watching the movie “Darkest Hour,” it’s clear that other politicians didn’t see Winston Churchill as a superhero whose destiny was to lead the British nation through one of its most challenging crises. He was the right man at the right time for an impossible job, facing what seemed like insurmountable odds. And yet, despite his cigar-chomping, nation-inspiring heroics, it was bye, bye Winston almost immediately after World War II ended. The same could be said of America’s mayor, Rudy Giuliani. He wasn’t

exactly a legend in New York before Sept. 11, 2001, as he seemed to pick fights with everyone and anyone. And then, after 9/11, he somehow struck just the right balance for a nation in mourning, offering sympathy and support while remaining proud of the country and defiant in the face of the attack. After he left office, the bloom came off that rose quickly as well. Then there’s George W. Bush — or “43,” if you prefer. Many people couldn’t stand him when he was in office, with his nuke-u-lar (for nuclear), his snickering and his parodyable speech patterns. And yet, these days, his image and his reputation have made a comeback, particularly today as common ground seems to be disappearing under the feet of the two major political parties. Maybe these dating sites shouldn’t ask your hobbies, religious preferences or favorite foods. Instead, they should ask what you think of Tom Brady, the current U.S. president and the wartime prime minister of England.

Love is in the air: Happy Valentine’s Day!

H

ere are some sentiments about that undefinable emotion: Love. Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointlife has By Leah S. Dunaief ments thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or

laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colors seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there is no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby.

Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life. Bob Marley Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. Lao Tzu

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our full potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. John Lennon I heard what you said. I’m not the silly romantic that you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want … a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love and be loved. Shana Abé
