More people died from an opioid overdose in Nassau and Suffolk counties in 2017 than ever before, contributing to the nationwide opioid issue. The attorneys at Siler & Ingber LLP have partnered with the Rabinowitz Family Foundation to offer a scholarship to a student who has been affected by the opioid crisis. To apply for the $5,000 educational scholarship available to high school seniors and college students, applicants will be asked to write an essay describing how the opioid epidemic has made an impact on his or her life and how he or she plans to use education to fight the problem. The scholarship serves two important purposes: To raise awareness of the opioid issue and inspire others to make a difference; and to empower those who have been impacted to produce real change in the world. Recipient must be a U.S. citizen or otherwise authorized to work in the United States; attend a two- or four-year university or trade school in the fall of 2018; have an undergraduate or high school cumulative 3.0 minimum GPA and be a resident of New York state.

A Town of Huntington councilman sharply criticized his fellow board members’ willingness to transfer town-owned land to a private developer for Huntington Station’s revitalization as a “betrayal of public trust.” Huntington town board voted 4-1 to give 1000 New York Ave. to Renaissance Downtowns, the master developer behind Huntington Station’s revitalization, at its April 10 meeting. Councilman Ed Smyth (R) was the only one to vote against, blasting his colleagues that giving the property away for free was “unconscionable.” “Giving away this property without knowing its current fair market valuable is grossly irresponsible,” Smyth said. “Our roads have potholes, marines and docks are in disrepair, the main floor of this building is covered by rubber matting that’s held down by tape. … The town cannot afford to give away this real estate for free.” The town had acquired the former Tilden Brakes site through use of eminent domain for about $700,000. Since then, the town has spent funds to demolish the former auto care center and clean up the land, Smyth pointed out. The land is one of four parcels Renaissance Downtowns needed to acquire to move forward with Gateway Plaza redevelopment. The approved site plan for 1000 to 1026 New York Ave. calls for the construction of a mixedused building consisting of 16,000-square-feet of retail space and 66 apartments — 33 studios and 33 one-bedroom units. The existing Brother’s Barber Shop will remain in place. Smyth said the developer has paid more than $3 million to private owners to acquire the three neighboring properties, yet the town will not receive any funds for 1000 New York Ave. “It’s not a free transfer by any stretch,” said Councilwoman Joan Cergol (D).

Cergol said that the town-owned property was appraised two years ago when the master development agreement for Huntington Station was negotiated. Renaissance Downtowns has invested funds into the revitalization project that was levied against the property’s value or “baked into the transaction.” Supervisor Chad Lupinacci (R) said he found himself in a difficult position in voting on the contractual agreement negotiated by former Supervisor Frank Petrone (D) to give the land to Renaissance Downtowns under Huntington Station’s master plan. If the transfer was voted down, Lupinacci said he knew the town would be immediately hit with a lawsuit and face tens of thousands in legal fees. “I care too much about the town and taxpayers to waste this type of money,” he said. The supervisor suggested the funds could be better spent by improving the town’s parks, offering childcare services or keeping the town’s tax rate low. His proclamation that he would support the measure and encouragement to his fellow board members to do the same, was met by a round of applause from residents. “We owe it to Huntington Station, revitalization is important,” Lupinacci said. “We want to restore it. It’s an excellent area.” Renaissance Downtowns had initially projected a time line of groundbreaking on the Gateway Plaza in fall of 2017. The developer hopes to be able to begin demolition within 60 to 90 days once proper permits are in order, according to Renaissance Downtowns Community Liaison Andrea Bonilla. A groundbreaking ceremony on construction is projected for this fall. “This is the next stage in the overall development,” Councilman Mark Cuthbertson (D) said. “I think it’s a good stepping stone.” The developer has already completed construction of Northridge, a multiuse building consisting of 6,200-square-feet of retail space and 16 one-bedroom apartments further south on New York Avenue.

A coach bus transporting dozens of Huntington area students home from a spring break trip smashed into a Southern State Parkway overpass late Sunday night, seriously injuring two 17-year-old girls. New York State Police said at 9:08 p.m. April 8 officers responded to a one-vehicle crash involving a 2000 Prevost coach bus traveling eastbound on the Southern State Parkway that had crashed into the Exit 18, Eagle Avenue overpass in the Town of Hempstead. There were 43 students and chaperones on board returning from a trip to eastern Europe. “We were informed shortly [after the crash] that several individuals who were injured in the accident were members of the Huntington High School community,” said Huntington Superintendent James Polansky. “While injuries apparently ranged in severity, preliminary reports indicate that all have been treated and released, or remain under treatment. Our thoughts and prayers remain with all families involved.” State police identified the driver of the coach bus as Troy Gaston, 43, of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, who was working for Journey Bus Line. Police said Gaston had used a noncommercial GPS device to determine the best route from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Walt Whitman Mall in Huntington was via the Belt and Southern State parkways. Gaston has a valid Pennsylvania commercial vehicle driver’s license. He was cooperative at the scene, according to police, where he was evaluated by a state police drug recognition expert for any sign of alcohol or drug use. The driver voluntarily offered a blood sample, which came back with no trace of alcohol use and a drug evaluation is still pending, police said. “This was an avoidable accident,” said U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) during a press conference. Schumer said in 2012 he held a press conference at the same overpass where the accident occurred calling for improved safety standards including the use of commercial GPS systems to warn truck and bus drivers about the clearance heights of bridges. In 2013, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the agency with a primary mission to prevent commercial motor vehicle-related fatalities and injuries, sent notification to all truckers and transportation companies about these commercial GPS systems. “This driver should have never been using the Southern State,” Schumer said. “And the GPS equipment was available to tell him.” While installation of these commercial GPS systems was recommended by the federal agency, it is not mandated by law, according to Schumer. The senator said he would look into legislation to require the systems be used and drivers trained to prevent future accidents. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced last December a $4.3 million project to install overheight vehicle detectors at 13 locations in Nassau and Suffolk counties, including Southern State Parkway. These detectors are installed at the top of on-ramps and relay an invisible beam set at the specific height needed to clear the parkway’s bridges. If a vehicle breaks the beam, the device triggers a colored LED message sign to flash a warning to the driver, alerting the truck or bus will not clear the bridge. Joe Morrissey, spokesman for the New York State Department of Transportation, confirmed these detectors have been installed at the Eagle Avenue overpass but said they are not yet active due to calibration and testing. Morrissey admitted even if the detectors had been functioning, they would not have prevented the accident. They are not set up to scan for overheight vehicles entering from the Belt Parkway, as the coach bus did. The National Transportation Safety Board was also notified of the accident, according to police, but it did not meet their response criteria. It will be monitoring the investigation. Anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to contact the state police at 631-756-3300.

VILLAGE Changing of guard in Northport with new mayor, deputy mayor BY KAREN FORMAN

TOM KEHOE

Spring brings the winds of change to the village of Northport as the longtime Mayor George Doll and his deputy have stepped down, giving over the reins to familiar faces. As of April 3, Doll and Deputy Mayor Henry Tobin have officially retired. Former trustee Damon McMullen has taken up the mantle of village mayor, while Tom Kehoe is now the deputy mayor. The question on many residents’ minds is, why did they retire? “It’s been 12 years,” Tobin said. “I never meant it to be a career. I loved being a trustee and the deputy mayor, but it’s time to do other things.” Tobin hopes to travel more. Doll said he is ready to roll up his sleeves and spend more time at his other career, as a commercial fisherman. The former mayor also wants to spend more time with his wife, children and grandchildren. “I will miss George and Henry both miserably,” said Village Clerk Donna Koch. “It was a pleasure working with them for the past 12 years.” McMullen served as a Northport trustee for 10 years before running unopposed for mayor last month. “If George had wanted to run again, I would have stepped aside,” McMullen said. “I learned so much from George, mainly to relax and be level headed. He said there’s always a solution to whatever problem was at hand that day.”

Former Mayor George Doll and new Deputy Mayor Tom Kehoe McMullen added that he admired Doll’s ability to work well with everyone around him. As a trustee, he felt the two had a good relationship working together. Kehoe agreed with McMullen on the longtime mayor’s approach to running Northport. “George had an even-handed approach to managing the village; he never attacked people.” Kehoe said, explaining a prior mayor had been contentious. “There was so much rancor and bitterness before George became mayor. Once George took over, no one was ridiculed. He was approachable. He was never disrespectful.” Kehoe lauded Doll for transforming the village hall into a community forum where residents felt their concerns and issues could be heard. He said the new board will endeavor

to do the same. As the outgoing deputy mayor, Tobin stressed it is important that the new trustees keep sight of working together. “‘All of us on the board knew that the public wanted a well-unified, well-functioning village government and so we all worked through all the issues until we had a consensus, trusting George and each other,” he said. Fellow board members said a great deal was accomplished by Doll during his tenure as mayor. Kehoe said they started outdoor dining in Northport, which turned the village into a destination like Huntington or Port Jefferson. “We have zero vacancies now on Main Street, except for Gunther’s, which is closed because of the fire,” the new deputy mayor said. “We’ve brought people into the village.”

Tobin said the former leadership also fostered many community activities such as the farmers’ market and Northport Harbor Family Nights, which occur in August. Among Doll’s successes, he said, was rallying community support to save the post office from being closed. The former board, including McMullen and Tobin, managed to obtain significant grants to cover the cost of upgrading the sewer treatment system and installing sewer mains in Steers Pit. The project cost a total of $13 million, but due to the board’s hard work and financial savvy the village taxpayers only had to pay $1.2 million out of pocket. Now with McMullen at the helm, he will be setting new goals for the board and already has a list of projects he wants to tackle. “I want to see the bay area even cleaner,” McMullen said. “And if the weather ever breaks, we will start a lot of road work, including curbs and sidewalks on Woodbine Avenue and work on Laurel Avenue by the library.” The new mayor said he plans to have the board review the village’s code book to update some of the existing laws. “Some of the code is 40 years old and it worked in its day, but it just isn’t practical anymore,” he said. Both McMullen and Kehoe know they will face a few challenges, but both feel they are up for the job. “We will keep Northport vibrant,” Kehoe said. “Northport is a unique place with all types of people here. We have 7,000 residents and we want to balance everyone’s needs.”

COUNTY

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

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

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

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

Huntington Station MS-13 gang member found guilty of forced recruitment BY SARA-MEGAN WALSH SARA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM A Huntington Station man has been found guilty of being an MS-13 gang member who used the threat of violence in an attempt to recruit new members. Suffolk County District Attorney Tim Sini (D) announced April 9 that Juan Lopez, 32, was convicted by a jury of first-degree attempted coercion, a felony. Lopez faces a maximum of four years in jail. “The victims did not join, they did the right thing,” Sini said. “That’s why it’s critical that the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office is here to protect the victims of not only gang violence, but also of gang intimidation.” On April 16, 2017, Lopez approached two young men at the soccer fields of Manor Field Park in Huntington Station at approximately 1 p.m. in attempts to recruit them to MS-13, according to the district attorney. This occurred less than five days after the murder of four young men near a park in Central Islip by alleged gang members. “When the boys resisted, this defendant

stated to them in unequivocal terms, ‘This is how you end up dead in the park,’” Sini said. “My message to Mr. Lopez is: That’s how you end up in jail in Suffolk County.” Lopez was arrested by Suffolk County police the following day, April 17, 2017. The case was prosecuted by the Enhanced Prosecution Bureau’s Gang Unit. The unit was launched in January 2018 by the newlyelected district attorney to focus exclusively on investigating and prosecuting crimes committed by gang members, such as members of MS-13. Sini said prosecutors evidence against Lopez at trial included witness statements in addition to his own tattoos. Lopez has a “1” tattooed on his right arm near his shoulder with a matching “3” tattooed on his left arm near the shoulder joint. In addition, he had a skull with two horns tattooed lower on his left arm, forming the letter “M” when viewed upside down. The district attorney said these tattoos are symbolic of membership in the MS-13 gang. “We will spare no resources, we will spare no effort to eradicate MS-13 from our communities,”he said.

Lombardi, a Brooklyn native and former member of the Fordham University football team coached football and basketball at St. Cecilia High School, where he also taught Latin and physics, not far from Hespos’ roots in North Bergen. The coach attended every meeting between the offensive coaches and the quarterbacks, and Hespos recalled the stature of this respected teacher, noting he was “demanding,” and that he expected all his players to “produce.” “He had an agile memory that knew everything about every player that was on the field,” Hespos said. The Port Jefferson Station teacher threw passes next to future Hall of Famer Bart Starr. One of seven quarterbacks invited to train, he was ultimately cut behind Starr’s backup Zeke Bratkowski. After he left Green Bay, Hespos played for a minor league football organization within the Atlantic Coast League. He was signed by the Jersey City Jets, which had former players that also had professional experience in United States and Canada.

‘They call it coaching, but it is teaching. You do not just tell them … you show them the reasons.’

BY RICH ACRITELLI

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

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

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

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

BIG RESULTS

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

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

Leave citizenship question off census

CUOMO’S OFFICE

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

Shore up oversights in passenger safety

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Confessions of a detested and detestable journalist

H

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

D. None of the above

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

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

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

Celebrating our 42nd anniversary as Facebook flounders

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

Between you and me

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

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

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