LIPA protesters gain momentum as tax lawsuit resumes BY DONNA DEEDY DONNA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM On a sunny Sunday afternoon, more than 100 residents of all ages, including many families with young children and pets, attended another public rally against Long Island Power Authority. At one point, their chant ﬁlled Cow Harbor Park in Northport village where they gathered April 7. “Stop LIPA now,” they repeated in protest. The power authority, a quasi-governmental state agency, is suing the Town of Huntington to reduce its $82 million property tax burden by 90 percent. LIPA, since the state’s public bailout of LILCO, and its failed Shoreham nuclear power plant project, has been paying the property taxes for power stations now owned by National Grid. Protest organizer Paul Darrigo formed a Facebook advocacy group called Concerned Taxpayers Against LIPA in mid-March, whose membership now totals more than 3,000 people. His group is concerned that if LIPA is successful it would devastate the Northport-East Northport school district, which currently receives $54 million annually from LIPA.
Northport village residents Kathleen and James Wansor have two very young children and attended the rally to learn more about the situation. Funding for education is important to the young family. “It doesn’t make sense and it doesn’t seem fair for us to all of a sudden see increases in our taxes,” Wansor said. Darrigo’s group is also reaching out to people across Long Island. “I want to coordinate our efforts with the

H. Emerson, who is overseeing the case, will determine the valuation of the Northport Power Station assets. The judge can take months to render a determination. “LIPA’s appraisal is fundamentally ﬂawed as it woefully undervalues a plant that is vital to the generation and supply of power on Long Island,” said Huntington Town Attorney Nicholas Ciappetta. LIPA spokesperson Sid Nathan said that his agency is looking forward to the opinion of the judge as an independent arbiter.

serving the public’s interest with their frivolous lawsuit. As I’ve said to LIPA, LIPA should uphold the promise that was made to my constituents and that the tax certiorari challenge should be dropped. Anything short of that would be detrimental to the vitality of the communities that I serve and would have a direct impact on their ability to provide indispensable programs and services.” But elected ofﬁcials on different levels of government lack a ﬁrm position on the issue. Both County Executive Steve Bellone (D) and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) offered similar public comments on the LIPA tax lawsuit against Huntington. “While we do not comment on pending litigation, we are monitoring the situation closely,” said Jordan Levine, deputy communications director for energy and the environment with the ofﬁce of the governor. “It is our hope that LIPA and the Town of Huntington can reach a mutually beneﬁcial agreement that is fair and beneﬁcial to all parties.” Northport Village Deputy Mayor Tom Kehoe is particularly critical of the state’s position. “The governor better wake up and jump in on this,” he said. “People are mad.”

County Suﬀolk County lawmakers ban tobacco sales in pharmacies BY DONNA DEEDY DONNA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM
Tobacco continues to hold a top spot as the number one cause of preventable death throughout the world, according to Suffolk County. And county lawmakers have now voted 16-2 to ban the sale of tobacco products in pharmacies. “Tobacco harms every organ in the body and is the only legal product sold in America that when use as directed, kills up to half
of its long-term users,” said Suffolk County Legislator William Spencer, MD, who co-sponsored the bill. The bill’s passage emphasizes that pharmacies are healthfocused businesses and aligns with the county’s other efforts to decrease tobacco use. It recently raised the age to purchase tobacco products to age 21, for example, and prohibits smoking in county parks, beaches and Suffolk County Community College. “This law decreases the bombardment of colorful tobacco displays meant to entice children and it reduces the inﬂuence
on adults trying to break the addiction to nicotine,” said Lori Benincasa, retired director for health education for Suffolk county. The new law applies to all tobacco products, including cigarettes, loose tobacco, cigars, powdered tobacco, shisha, herbal cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, electronic liquids, rolling paper and smoking paraphernalia. Consumers will still be allowed to purchase in pharmacies FDA approved nicotine replacement therapies such as skin patches, nicotine gum and lozenges. The ban will take effect before the end of 2019.
Suffolk County is promoting government sponsored support programs to help people quit smoking. Information is available at:

Northport inn and restaurant is planned. Rendering from Kevin O’Neill
Northport board approves hotel project BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM After a nearly two-year site-plan process, the Northport Village Board of Trustees unanimously approved March 26 the proposed Northport Hotel at 225 Main St. The hotel project, once complete, will include a 24-room hotel, a 124-seat restaurant with 50 additional seats in the lobby and bar area. “This is probably the largest investment on Main Street since the [John W. Engeman] theater,” the Suffolk County Industrial Development Agency Executive Director Tony Catapano said. His agency approved in February a $1.3 million payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreement for the hotel. The 15-year agreement offers the hotel savings on mortgage recording and sales and property taxes. Catapano said the agency determined the tax incentives would save the hotel developers about 29 percent over the span of the 15 years. By 2035, the hotel would be paying full taxes estimated at $174,268 a year. Once the hotel is built, the owners will pay about $87,000 in taxes the first year with 3 percent tax increases each following year, according to the agency. Catapano said the agency projects approximately 66 jobs will be created during the construction period. Once in full operation, the agency expects the hotel would also create about 40 jobs with an average salary of $34,000. Construction is expected to take 12 to 18 months. The executive director noted that while the tax agreement will save the developers money, developers are also spending $1.3 million on the hotel’s parking structure. “This will be a positive for Main Street,” Catapano said. “The hotel is going to be a tourist destination for people outside the region and for residents in Northport.” Despite being a substantial investment for Main Street, many Northport residents have expressed
concern about accessibility and how the hotel could exacerbate parking issues in the village. Hotel co-owner Kevin O’Neill — with Richard Dolce — did not respond to repeated requests for comment. Both men own the Engeman theater. But O’Neill responded to residents concerns at a Jan. 29 village public hearing saying the hotel’s parking lot would be able to facilitate about 150 cars. Similarly, a study released in December 2018 determined there are plenty of parking spots if people are willing to walk. The Village of Northport hired Old Bethpage-based Level G Associates LLC to perform a paid-parking study of Northport. Their survey, which took place from August to October 2018, concluded the village’s 615 parking spaces are sufficient, with a slight exception of summer evenings. On a typical weekday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Level G Associates found 60 percent of Main Street metered spots were taken and Main Street lots were full as well. However, the study cited roughly 100 available spaces in the waterside lots and Lot 7, located off Woodside Avenue by the American Legion hall. “These are normal/healthy parking patterns for an active [central business district],” the report stated. On Friday and Saturday evenings, Level G Associates found most metered parking spots and lots on Main Street were full. However, the study found “ample available parking” in the free waterside and Woodside Avenue lots that are within reasonable walking distance for downtown employees or visitors. The only time traffic experts found an issue with the village’s parking was on summer nights, from 5 to 9 p.m. The study found the village’s parking is 95 percent full, often due to concerts and special event attendance, and could be improved through the addition of 72 spaces.

December 12, 2017, was Vecchio’s last board meeting as Smithtown supervisor. The occasion drew a crowd that filled the boardroom and trailed through the hallways and down staircases. People bid farewell and thanked the supervisor for implementing his vision on their behalf. Suffolk County Legislator Robert Trotta (R-Fort Salonga) noted during the tribute that Vecchio was leaving Smithtown with a budgetary surplus rather than debt. “This town is in such good financial shape, it is all because of you,” Trotta said. “You should be a model for every other town in the country, the nation, the state and certainly the county.” In addition to Vecchio’s reputation for fiscal restraint, under his leadership, Smithtown moved to the forefront and earned national recognition for many environmental conservation and clean energy projects.

It was a life well lived. A first-generation American, the child of Italian immigrants, born during the Great Depression and dedicated to public service. “At the end of the day, I’ve done something for people. And that’s the guiding principle of my life,” said former Smithtown Supervisor Patrick Vecchio in a 2015 interview with The Times of Smithtown. Patrick Vecchio died Sunday, April 7, at age 88. For a record 40 years — nearly half of his lifetime — he held the Town of Smithtown’s highest office. During his tenure, seven different presidents held office, while the residents of Smithtown re-elected the same man to represent them again and again for 13 terms. Roughly half of his years in office, he served as a Democrat, the other half a Republican. Today, people in both parties recognize his distinct leadership qualities. In fact, his portrait hangs in the Town of Smithtown Town Hall boardroom, and the building itself bears his name.

New York State Sen. Jim Gaughran (D-Northport) announced $1,284,000 in funding for gang prevention this fiscal year. The money will be used for, among other things, community intervention programs for at-risk youth. “MS-13 is a force of evil that has taken too many lives and wreaked havoc on our communities. As legislators we have an obligation to provide the necessary resources to root out gangs and protect our public,” Gaughran said. “This state aid will help fund community programs that prevent at-risk youth from joining gangs by providing safe alternatives, a critical aspect to stemming the proliferation of gangs and gang violence.” Gaughran secured the funding as part of the state budget, finalized late March 31. One million dollars is allocated for Long Island for gang violence prevention, $135,000 is allocated for the Huntington Youth Bureau Youth Development Research Institute Inc. and $149,000 is allocated for the Tri Community Youth Agency. Funds will be used to support Project CAST (Community and Schools Together), a critical community intervention project that helps at-risk youth through outreach and case management. The CAST program, which is free to youth and their families, and is vital to deterring at-risk youth from joining gangs. “Many of our families rely on these free services and I thank Senator James Gaughran and
Assemblyman Steve Stern for their commitment to secure the necessary funding to make sure these services are available to the families that need them the most,” said Town of Huntington Councilwoman Joan Cergol (D). CAST is run through the Town of Huntington Youth Bureau’s subcontract youth agency Tri Community Youth Agency and Project F.A.C.I.L.E., a jointly run program through the Huntington Youth Bureau and Family Service League of Suffolk Inc. Gaughran was joined by Assemblyman Steve Stern (D-Dix Hills), Town of Huntington Supervisor Chad Lupinacci (R), Suffolk County legislators Willian “Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport) and Tom Donnelly (D-Deer Park), Tri Community Youth Agency Executive Director Debbie Rimler, the Huntington Youth Bureau, and participants in the CAST program. The announcement was held at Tri Community and Youth Agency, which runs gang prevention programs for at-risk youth. “As the chair of the Legislature’s Public Safety committee, I know that prevention and intervention are the keys to keeping our communities safe,” said Donnelly. “The Tri-Community has created and implemented an outstanding, innovative and highly effective gang prevention outreach program that identifies vulnerable youth and provides them with the skills, tools and support they need to stay on the right path.”

1,4-dioxane chemical a concern on Long Island
County water authority announces new rates BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Many have attributed New York state of having “the champagne of drinking water,” though in recent years concerns over water quality have grown, especially on Long Island. After toxic chemicals have been found in Long Island’s drinking water, 1,4-dioxane, has been found to be the chief concern on the Island, and currently it is not regulated by the state. The chemical has been designated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a likely carcinogen associated with liver and kidney damage after a lifetime of exposure to contaminated drinking water. In March, 1,4-dioxane was found in private drinking wells of two homes on Oakside Drive in Smithtown where results showed concentrations higher than 1 part per billion, which is the proposed recommendation by the New York State Drinking Water Quality Council in December 2018. It is not a definitive standard, and the state Health Department is expected to propose a water standard for 1,4-dioxane in the near future. As a result of the uncertainty surrounding the Island’s drinking water, the Suffolk County Department of Health Services, beginning on March 25, sent informational letters and planned on visiting the 29 homes served by the wells along Smithtown’s Landing Avenue, Oakside Drive and Valley Avenue. From there, each homeowner would set up an appointment with the SCDHS and its staff will come and secure water samples from the wells. Grace Kelly-McGovern, public relations director at SCDHS said as of April 10 every homeowner received a letter regarding the surveys and 15 of the wells at these homes have already been sampled. Three more homeowners have requested samplings, but the department has yet to receive a response from the other 11 homeowners. According to Kelly-McGovern, once the samples are collected, they will be sent to the SCDHS lab, which is located in Yaphank, and will be tested for 1,4-dioxane and other contaminants. The process should take one to two months. She added it could take several months until homeowners are notified of the results of the samples. A concern of 1,4-dioxane is that it can’t be removed through conventional treatment methods and involves a complex process of mixing the contaminated water with hydrogen peroxide, treated with ultraviolet light and then gets sent to tanks filled with carbon where the rest of contaminants are filtered out. The Suffolk County Water Authority’s Central Islip treatment system currently has the sole advanced oxidation process system capable of removing 1,4-dioxane on Long Island, though it required state approval to get it. At a forum in early February, the Long Island Water Conference estimated the cost of treatment systems for close to 200 water wells contaminated by 1,4-dioxane to be at $840 million. Implementing these treatment systems, they said, could lead to higher water rates for homeowners. The conference coalition asked for additional state aid and for a delay in when they would have to meet the standard. As the issue for Long Island’s water providers continues, the SCWA board voted to create the first tiered-rate structure in the agency’s history April 1. The new rate structure took effect the same day and the base
drinking water charge for all customers will increase from $1.95 per thousand gallons to $2.028 per thousand gallons. The new tiered rate will be $2.34 per thousand gallons for all consumption over 78,540 gallons per quarter. Customers will only pay the tiered rate on water above 78,540 gallons per quarter, and the standard rate up until that point. According to the authority, the action is in accordance with an initiative undertaken by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, which established a goal for suppliers of reducing peak season water use by 15 percent by 2021 in order to ensure the sustainability of water resources. “Conservation rate structures have been adopted all across the country to encourage Americans to adjust their water-use habits for the long-term preservation of available water resources,” Jeffrey Szabo, the SCWA chief executive officer said in a press release. “We expect the new rate structure to help protect ratepayers who are careful in their water use and help provide the continued viability of our aquifer system.” The 1,4-dioxane chemical has also been found in industrial solvents. A March study released by the Citizens Campaign for the Environment indicates the chemical is present in 65 of 80 household products tested, including baby products, shampoos, detergents and body washes. According to Adrienne Esposito, CCE executive director, the products were tested by the ALS environmental laboratory in Rochester which is certified by the state Department of Health. The CCE argues that the chemical could end up down the drain and seep into drinking water through septic systems or wells. Similarly, state Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket) has introduced a bill that would ban household products containing 1,4-dioxane in the state except in trace amounts. The bill is currently in committee.

The highest scoring team from county tournaments proceeds to the regional competition to perform the mock trial against other county winners. The top team from each of New York State’s eight regions is then invited to attend and participate in the state finals. The tournament encompasses the valuable lessons of ethics, civility and professionalism; furthers students’ understanding of the law, court procedures and the legal system; improves proficiency in basic life skills,
such as listening, speaking, reading and reasoning; promotes better communication and cooperation among the school community, teachers, students and members of the legal profession; and heightens appreciation for academic studies and stimulates interest in law-related careers.

Project Citizen brings civics to life
For the second year, sixth-grade students from Northport and East Northport middle schools visited Touro Law Center last month to present their semester-long projects entitled Project Citizen. These 28 students are a part of the schools’ Investigate program, a challenging enrichment program that emphasizes higher level thinking skills, problem solving activities and cooperative learning techniques. Students presented their projects to a panel of civic experts, including Northport social studies chairperson, Sean Hurley; Suffolk County legislative aide, Liz Alexander; director of development at SCCC, Christopher Williams; and Touro Law students Kassandra Polanco and Sydnie Molina. For this project, students first identified an issue of public policy in their community that concerned them. Each group of students then researched its chosen problem, interviewing
community members who could assist them in learning more about the issue, as well as identifying potential solutions by way of letter writing, emails and phone calls. Students identified and researched the lack of street lights in Crab Meadow, the rise in rear-end collisions as a result of red light cameras, the environmental impacts of plastic straw use, the need for school crossing guards to work longer hours, the Asharoken sea wall, the need for clean water fountains, cat declawing and the issue of flooding in Northport village. In addition to help from program facilitators Brianne Furstein and Fran Bertos, Northport High School law teacher David Scott also guided students in their research and organized their visit to Touro. “This was a great event that brought civic learning to life. Students were able to see how they can work together to use their voice to make our world a better place,” said Scott.

Puppy volunteers needed The Guide Dog Foundation is looking for passionate Long Island–based volunteers to provide loving homes to future guide dogs. Puppy raisers take home an 8-week-old puppy and care for it until it is between 14 and 18 months old. Puppy raisers play a vital role in the development of future assistance dogs: They spend countless hours caring for, teaching and socializing the pups. They are responsible for socializing their future guide dog and are
encouraged to provide common day-to-day socializing opportunities and exposure to new and diverse surroundings. A well-socialized puppy will have fewer adjustments to make when it comes back to the foundation for formal training. “Our puppy raisers have an undeniable love, passion, and kindness that they each share. It is an experience like no other and, while it requires work on the raiser’s part, our raisers are left with a priceless feeling of the good
they’re contributing to the world,” said Lorin Bruzzese, puppy program manager, Guide Dog Foundation. The puppy raiser is also required to teach the puppy basic obedience, such as how to walk on a leash, sit and stay, down and to come when called.

Editorial Value newspapers There’s something real about a newspaper, and it goes beyond the ink and page, beyond the action of picking one up at the drugstore or plucking it from the mailbox. We who work at TBR News Media imbue the paper, the one you hold in your hands right now, with our labor. If you could see us at our work, you would know just how hard and long we work to provide the community with as much local content as we can. Truly, the paper is alive. While we editors and reporters are active in the community every day, we know the lives of the people behind the paper are not front and center. Behind each of those bylines you might read in the paper today is a person researching, interviewing and eventually rapidly typing each deliberated word hunched over a desk. Each picture is edited and placed within the blocks of text. The ads are crafted by graphic designers spending hours arranging each one. We’re hardly some sort of news assembly line, working out of some monolithic New York City skyscraper. Our tiny, two-story office is located right here on the North Shore, blending into the surrounding rustic buildings of Setauket. This past weekend, a team from TBR News Media traveled up to Albany for the annual New York Press Association convention. Hundreds of reporters, editors and publishers from papers from across the state gather for this annual event in a single location. Listening to the voices of the people at other papers during this event can be both disheartening and encouraging. Advertising dollars are down; and, while research from the University of Texas at Austin’s Center for Media Engagement shows journalists rate themselves high in credibility, accuracy and trustworthiness, the public has a much lower opinion. “Fake news” has become a common phrase, one that was initially used for the express purpose of distorting facts during the 2016 presidential campaign. It’s now regularly used to denigrate a pillar of our democracy, which concerns us. It’s important for people to understand the importance of our profession to a healthy democracy. Comfort the afflicted, afflict the comfortable is an expression often used to describe the role of the newspaper. We aim to hold people in power accountable and report on government operations, so citizens become better informed voters. We take this role very seriously. A good chunk of our staff lives within our coverage areas along Long Island’s North Shore. We carefully report on the community because we are a part of that community. We wish to see it thrive because we ourselves care about what should happen to our neighbors and the place in which we all live. What does that mean for you, the person holding the paper? Know that we appreciate you. You’re keeping the paper alive.

Letters to the editor
NY needs to reinstate SALT deductions Long Island faces many unique challenges not experienced in most other parts of the country, such as high local property taxes, unaffordable energy costs and a skyrocketing cost of living. These challenges have chased Long Islanders and opportunities away from our home here on the Island. In 2018, the average household income in Suffolk County was roughly $92,000, and while that may seem like a lot of money compared to what people make in other parts of the country, it certainly does not go anywhere near as far locally. For hardworking Long Islanders, the high cost of living is affecting so many young people’s ability to raise their families here and seniors’ ability to stay in the communities they love. While some Long Islanders have seen more money in their paychecks under tax reform, there are too many middle-income families paying more. Much of this discrepancy can be credited to the placement of a $10,000 cap
on the state and local tax deduction. This cap translates to Long Islanders being able to deduct only $10,000 of state and local income, sales and property taxes from their federal taxes. In a place like New York, where state and local taxes are skyrocketing, this cap takes its toll on the pockets of everyday hardworking men and women. Of course, it’s important to remember that the reason our state and local tax deduction was so high was because our state and local taxes were so high. Every level of government has a role to play in reducing our tax burden. The SALT deduction change was a geographic redistribution of wealth, taking extra money from places like New York to pay for deeper tax cuts elsewhere. New York is a net contributor that now will be contributing even more. The 2017 tax law chose winners and losers in a way that could have and should have been avoided. My goal in this tax reform mission has always been to ensure the hardworking
men and women of Long Island keep more of their paycheck, reduce their cost of living and are able to save more for retirement. The fight to improve our tax code so that it is fair for Long Islanders is not over. I support fully restoring the SALT deduction as part of any additional tax legislation. This Congress, I am continuing the fight by co-sponsoring the SALT Fairness Act of 2019 (H.R.257), introduced by Reps. Peter King (R-Seaford) and Tom Suozzi (D-Glen Cove), and the SALT Deductibility Act (H.R.188), introduced by Rep. Nita Lowey (D-Rockland-Westchester), which would repeal the limitation on SALT deductions. I’m willing to work with anyone on either side of the aisle to secure tax relief for my constituents, and I won’t stop fighting to ensure middle-income Long Islanders are able to keep more of their hard-earned money. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) U.S. Representative, District 1
Long Island should close its incinerators Renewable energy and conservation are without a doubt necessary for our and the environment’s health. The flipside is addressing air pollution sources on Long Island. A source of health and environmentdamaging pollution is the regional incinerator in Huntington. That, and the regional incinerators in Uniondale, Babylon and Islip spew horrendous, toxic contaminants such as lead, mercury, zinc, nickel, cadmium, soot, acids, arsenic, ammonia, aromatic hydrocarbons,
chromium, vanadium, hydrogen chloride, formaldehyde. These cause cancer, birth defects, cardio-pulmonary disease, heart attacks and more. The operating company states that all emissions are below regulated limits, but 24/7 exposure, year after year has negative health effects. Cancer rates are often a concern in neighborhoods near incinerators, according to maps that I’ve looked at. The operating company claims these are “Waste to Energy” plants. The 100 or so megawatts it collectively produces
Host a Fresh Air kid The Fresh Air Fund looks forward to celebrating National Volunteer Week, which is from April 7 to 13 this year. It is an opportunity to extend my heartfelt gratitude to our inspiring volunteers, hosts and supporters in Suffolk County. The Fresh Air Fund’s programs would not be possible without the commitment of our dedicated volunteers, many of whom are also host families, who serve on committees, interview prospective host families, publicize the program and plan summer activities. Additionally, individuals and local businesses give
generously of their time and resources to make The Fresh Air Fund’s Friendly Towns Program a great success throughout Suffolk County each summer. As we hear from alumni and connect with long-standing host families, we continue to learn how Fresh Air Fund summers have impacted lives — and continue to transform lives many years later. We have learned that a summer can last a lifetime. The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City children from

Furthermore, incinerator ash is a super-concentrated toxin that is buried in landfills, over our sole-source of drinking water. LI gets its potable water from the ground, compared to the rest of New York State’s mountain runoff. Even New York City closed all its incinerators.

low-income communities since 1877. First-time Fresh Air children are boys and girls, from 7 to 12 years old, who live in New York City.

Competitive people get stuck in an elevator
our people get into an elevator together. They kind of recognize each other, but they’re not sure so they smile politely and nod. They’re all going to the 7th ﬂoor. On the way up, the elevator gets stuck. Mr. B, the baseball coach, looks at his watch and shakes his head. Ms. S, the soccer coach, paces back and forth, as if she’s blocking a goal. D. None Mrs. V, the violin teacher, closes of the above her eyes, taps her BY DANIEL DUNAIEF feet and imagines the rhythm of a Mozart concerto. Mrs. Jones tries to text her three children, but the elevator doesn’t get any
cell service. “This shouldn’t take too long,” Mr. B offers hopefully. “I’ve been stuck in elevators, had rain delays and all kinds of problems in the past. We’ll be ﬁne.” “Oh, hey Mr. B,” Mrs. Jones says, her voice shaking a bit. “It’s me, Joan Smith. I’m John’s mom.” “Right, right, I knew you looked familiar,” Mr. B says. “Did John have a chance to go hit in the cages like I told him to?” “No, well, he had a violin lesson, so he couldn’t,” Mrs. Jones replies. “But I know he wants to and he’ll get to the cage this weekend.” “This weekend?” Mr. B sighs. “By then the big game will be over.” “So, you’re the reason John couldn’t concentrate during his lesson,” Mrs. V says, as her foot stops and she swivels to face Mr. B. “Excuse me?” Mr. B says, crossing his arms over his chest. “John has been slumping recently and we need him to start hitting again. He has
tremendous potential and we’d like to see how far that will take him.” “Wait, John Jones?” Ms. S asks, turning to the group. “John is a fantastic goalie and we need him for our club game this weekend.” “I thought soccer was a fall sport,” Mr. B sighs. “Right, and baseball is a spring sport and yet during our busiest season, John seems to sneak away for extra hitting and throwing,” Ms. S says. “Well, he needs to practice all year round. What’s he going to do with soccer?” Mr. B adds. “You’re kidding, right? You think he’s going to play baseball in college?” Ms. S asks. “Does anyone have any idea how talented he is on the violin? Have you ever heard him play? He is way ahead of his peers on the violin and could easily play at a much higher level,” Mrs. V says. “He never talks about the violin with me,” Mr. B says, unfolding and refolding his arms. “Would you be interested in hearing about it? Do you think he’s ﬁgured out that you might not
be a receptive audience?” Mrs. V adds. “Now, come on, think about this: John gets to play soccer, baseball and the violin,” Mrs. Jones says. “He gets to beneﬁt from all of your expertise and he’s passionate about all these activities. You’re all giving him experiences he’ll never forget and he’s fortunate to have these opportunities. That’s a good thing, right?” “Yes, I suppose,” Ms. S huffs. “But if he really wants to be great at anything, he needs to commit to it year round.” “I could say the same thing about baseball,” Mr. B says. The elevator suddenly starts to move again. “Yes, but he has committed to all of your activities throughout the year,” Mrs. Jones sighs. “I know, because I’m driving him and his sisters everywhere. Please understand that he does the best he can to pick and choose during overlapping events. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to shop for a present to celebrate his 10th birthday.”
Three cheers for three celebrations
his is a week of celebrations, and it gives me great pleasure to share them with you, our readers. First is the delightful news that Times Beacon Record newspapers won 12 awards for outstanding work over the past year from the New York Press Association this past weekend. The convention was in Albany, and we loved hearing our names called out before a group of more than 300 attendees from weeklies and dailies, paid papers and free, representing communities Between throughout New you and me York state. The BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF prizes are listed elsewhere in the paper, and I am particularly pleased that they span the two primary responsibilities we carry:
good editorial coverage and attractive advertising. Those are our two masters, and we need to serve both well in order to survive. Speaking of surviving, a major part of the convention and its workshops was concerned with just that. As most of you know, newspapers — and the media across the board — are engaged in a gigantic struggle. Small businesses, long the backbone of community newspapers like ours, are falling by the wayside. Consumers are buying from Amazon and Google. It’s so easy to toddle over to a computer in one’s pajamas and order up Aunt Tillie’s birthday present, have it wrapped and delivered in no time at all, and perhaps even save some money in the transaction. Only small stores with highly specialized product for sale can compete. Or else they offer some sort of fun experience in their shops, making a personal visit necessary. And it’s not only small stores that are disappearing. Stores like Lord & Taylor — “a fortress on Fifth Avenue,” according to The New York Times — are also gone, directly impacting publications like that esteemed paper. But that is only one existential threat to media.

The other is the drumbeat of fake news. The internet and social media have been signiﬁcantly discredited as news sources. Cable television hasn’t done much better in the public’s regard. Print, which has always been considered the most reliable source of fact-based news, mainly because it takes longer to reach the readers and is vetted by editors and proofers, can be dismissed with a wave of the hand and the accusation, “Fake news!” On the other hand, polls show that print is still the most trusted source. And that is particularly true for hometown newspapers, where reporters and editors live among those they write about and have to answer to them in the supermarket and at school concerts. Which brings me to my next cause for celebration. Monday, April 8, marked the 43rd anniversary of the founding of The Village Times, which began the Times Beacon Record expansion. We were there in 1976, we are here in 2019, and I believe a good measure of success is simply survival. We are still just as committed to the high ideals of a free press — carrying those ideals and passion to our website and any

other of our other platforms and products — as we were that day of wild exhilaration when our ﬁrst issue was mailed to our residents. We will remain so in the future with the support of the communities we serve. There is one other happy occasion this week. My oldest grandchild, Benji, is celebrating his birthday. When Benji was born, 24 years ago, I became a grandmother. This is, as we know, a club one cannot join on one’s own. One needs a grandchild to be admitted to this lovely existence. And in addition to the joy of watching him grow up into an honorable and talented young man, I have the exceptional pleasure of working with him as he goes about his chosen career of making quality ﬁlms. It was he who directed and helped write our historical movie, “One Life to Give,” and now its sequel, “Traitor.” It is he who will be the ﬁrst of our family’s next generation to graduate from college next month. I am writing this column on the eve of your birthday, Benji. Happy Birthday, Dear Grandson! And I salute your parents for letting you follow your heart.
