State

Governor commits millions to energy storage projects The remaining funds will be allocated over the next three to five years and will be used to drive down costs and scale up the market for these clean energy technologies. The incentives support energy storage installed at customer sites for standalone systems or systems paired with solar. “Incentivizing energy storage projects on Long Island is a necessary step in order to develop our renewable resource

capacity,” Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket), chair of the Assembly Environmental Conservation Committee, said. “This will help reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, stabilize energy bills for ratepayers, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. I applaud Governor Cuomo for this initiative and look forward to more proposals that will ensure New York State takes the lead in addressing climate change.”

As part of New York State’s commitment to reach zero-carbon emissions, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced July 3 a $55 million investment for energy storage projects that promotes commercial and residential clean energy use on Long Island. “With our nation-leading clean energy goals and aggressive strategy to combat climate change, New York continues to set the example of climate leadership for other states across the country,” Cuomo said. “These incentives for energy storage will help Long Islanders grow their clean energy economy and create jobs while also improving the resiliency of the grid in the face of more frequent extreme weather events.” The initial roll out includes nearly $15 million in incentives available immediately from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority for both residential and commercial installations. Additional compensation is also available from PSEG-LI’s Dynamic Load Management tariff, which pays customers

to reduce the amount of grid electricity used when demand is highest. The energy storage system paired with solar can enable this to be accomplished. The current NYSERDA incentive is $250 for each kilowatt hour of energy storage installed up to 25 kilowatt hours for a residential system and 15 megawatt hours for a commercial system. NYSERDA’s NY-Sun program also offers financing for the installation of solar panels. “As more renewable resources are brought online throughout the state, energy storage will improve the efficiency of the grid to better integrate resources like solar while providing residents and businesses with a cleaner, more reliable energy system,” Alicia Barton, president and CEO, NYSERDA, said. “This announcement reinforces Long Island’s position as one of the leading clean energy markets in New York and moves the state closer to reaching Governor Cuomo’s aggressive 3,000 megawatts by 2030 energy storage target.” The state estimates that the 2030 target equates to powering 40 percent of New York homes with carbon-free technology.

State/Town

Gaughran ends session with 18 bills passing both houses BY DONNA DEEDY DONNA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM State Sen. Jim Gaughran (D-Northport) has had a banner year. As a freshman senator serving the greater Huntington region, he introduced 68 bills with more than half passing the Senate, according to his office, and 26 percent passing both branches of the state Legislature. Looking back, Gaughran said in a recent interview the 2019 legislative session, which ended June 20, will be regarded overall as remarkable. He attributes his success rate to the fact that the Senate was comprised of so many freshman senators. His proudest accomplishment, he said, was passing a bill to provide disability benefits to civilian public employees who responded to Ground Zero after the 9/11 terrorist attack. The bill, called S5898D, offers relief to overlooked workers, such as transit employees and civil engineers who are sick, suffering from severe conditions and are dying from cleanup-related afflictions. Timothy DeMeo, a first responder for the N.Y. State Department of Environmental Conservation, said he is grateful to Gaughran for getting the legislation passed within four months. “This law is long overdue and will help so many of us who need to retire to be able to fully address our health concerns,” he said. DeMeo arrived at the Twin Towers just as the second plane struck and was injured by falling debris. His vehicle, he said, flipped

over and pancaked. He has required multiple surgeries and is scheduled for more. DeMeo worked for the DEC for 20 years and logged more than 1,000 hours over the course of four months removing hazardous waste from Ground Zero. Today, he suffers from respiratory ailments and other conditions. “I call myself the forgotten responder, because I’m not afforded the same benefits of my respected colleagues,” he said. Some of Gaughran’s other legislative achievements include making the 2 percent

property tax cap permanent, allowing for early voting in elections and backing the state’s red-flag law, which establishes rules that keep guns out of the hands of people who are mentally ill. Gaughran said he opposed bail reform and allowing undocumented immigrants the ability to qualify for a driver’s license, two controversial bills that passed both the Senate and the Assembly and were ultimately signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D). In the fall, while lawmakers are out of

session, Gaughran expects to hold hearings with his constituents. One issue he’d like to see addressed is high property taxes. “We may need to open a discussion on consolidation,” he said. Schools, counties and local governments, he said, should work to share more services, which can reduce costs. With regard to the Long Island Power Authority, Gaughran sponsored several bills. One bill, which proposed financial aid to school districts impacted by LIPA’s tax certiorari cases, stalled in committee. The other bill, S5122A, aimed to prevent LIPA from collecting back taxes through tax lawsuits. The Senate passed the latter LIPA bill unanimously and the Assembly introduced identical legislation, but it remained under legal review in the Assembly and was never put to a vote. Gaughran said that LIPA CEO Tom Falcone and LIPA lobbyists had a strong presence in Albany, after he successfully introduced the LIPA bill. He plans to take the issue up again in next year’s session. LIPA’s press office did not respond to email requests for comments about its lobbying efforts related to the bills. Record requests filed under New York’s Freedom of Information Law are still pending. Overall, Gaughran would like to see improvements made to the state’s budget process. Legislators, he said, are bombarded with bills right before the April 1 budget deadline. “We really have to fix the budget process,” he said. “It’s policy as much as money.”

Huntington revising accessory apartment rules BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Many Huntington residents rely on income from accessory apartments to help offset high property taxes. The Town of Huntington has proposed legislation that would change rental rules. In some cases, the new rules are more lenient, making it easier for people to rent space in their home. But the proposals also include a ban on basement apartments, unless a valid dwelling unit permit already exists. The fate of these accessory apartments has proved to be a contentious issue and residents have been debating the pros and cons of such a change in May and June at two town board meetings. At a May 30 public hearing, a change in local zoning law was discussed and would reduce the lot size requirement for accessory

apartments from 7,500 square feet to 5,000. The frontage requirement for an apartment would change from 75 feet to 50 feet. Hector Gavilla, a real estate broker in the town for the past 16 years, spoke at the hearing and sent a letter stating that high property taxes are the real problem that needs to be addressed. He also said it is a false narrative to tell people that these changes in the law will lower the rates for apartment rentals. He argued that the changes in law could harm more people than it would help. “[The proposal] this will allow too many people to occupy much smaller dwellings,” he said. “This could create cramped and unsafe living conditions.” Town records show that the town unanimously approved a resolution to ban basement apartments without a valid permit. At a June town board meeting, a proposal

to ban all basement and cellar apartments, unless a valid permit already exists or is pending with an already-filed application, was put on the table as well as changes to short-term rental rules. Some residents argued that the ban would negatively impact lower-income homeowners. Others said basement apartments are a safety concern and potentially hazardous, because the space is prone to mold and carbon monoxide leaks. Huntington resident Dale Gifford said she is in favor of the ban on basement apartments in the town. “Expert environmentalists have come from out of town to lend their voices to educate the public and the board on the damages caused by overdevelopment and overcrowding,” she said. “Nitrate seeps through the soil from stressed cesspools and gets picked up by the heavy rain.”

John Esposito had similar sentiments on the legislation, stating that it is a no-brainer. Accessory apartments, he said, can be especially hazardous to EMT and emergency response workers due to possible carbon monoxide issues that can occur in basements. “This a step in the right direction. Myself and others object to the overdevelopment, zoning of multiple apartment units and the apartments behind Stop and Shop,” he said. “This will give us a better quality of life [in the town].” Conrad Ege, a Huntington resident, opposed the legislation, saying it was too much of a financial burden. “It would make it harder for them to pay some lines of credit, to pay taxes, to pay for other improvements that are necessary on APARTMENTS Continued on A7

Town

Town councilwoman hosts evening with local authors Town of Huntington Councilwoman Joan Cergol is inviting residents to join her July 18 as she places the spotlight on three published authors at a special “Readings Under the Tent” event at Melville’s Arboretum Park. The three Huntington authors will join Cergol under a tent at the park, read from their recently published works and answer questions. The event begins at 7 p.m., is open to the public and is free. “This is just another wonderful way to enjoy our parks and spend a summer evening. I look forward to hearing the stories behind the works of our highlighted authors, and hearing them read excerpts from their published works,” Cergol said. “Huntington has a rich literary history, dating back to Walt Whitman. The writers who will be speaking continue that tradition and represent different genres of literature, which should make it very interesting.” The authors are: Michael Bobelian, an award-winning author, lawyer and journalist whose works have covered issues ranging from legal affairs to corporate wrongdoing to human rights. As a contributing writer at Forbes.com, Michael currently covers the Supreme Court, Wall Street reform, white collar crime, regulatory agencies, human rights and high-profile trials. His current book, “Battle for the Marble Palace: Abe Fortas, Earl Warren, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon and the Forging of the Modern Supreme Court”, is a narrative account of the politicization of the court during the 1950s and 1960s and the revolution it sparked in the confirmation process. He lives in Cold Spring Harbor. Amy Giles, an award-winning copywriter and young adult author of “Now Is Everything”

(a Bank Street Best Children’s Book of 2017) and “That Night” (a Junior Library Guild selection). Published in October 2018, “That Night” explores how two teens, who each lost a brother in a mass shooting, slowly become friends and then something more, learning to heal and move forward together. Amy lives in Huntington with her husband, two daughters and rescue dog. Jeannie Moon, a USA Today bestselling author of romance and women’s fiction. A lifelong Long Island resident, Jeannie sets her stories in the coastal towns and hamlets that influenced the story of her life. Additionally, Jeannie is a school librarian and an English teacher with more than 30 years of experience in public and private schools. The author of 16 contemporary romances for Tule Publishing and Penguin Random House, her latest novel “All of Me” — the third installment in her Compass Cove series — is scheduled for August 28 publication. Jeannie is married to her high school sweetheart, and has three grown kids and three lovable dogs. Cergol is already working on a second session, to be held in August, at a different town park and with a different lineup of authors. “This is a wonderful opportunity for residents of all ages and literary tastes to experience some of the hidden jewels of our town park network and appreciate firsthand why Huntington has been a magnet for authors dating back more than 100 years,” the councilwoman said. Arboretum Park, home of the town’s Anne Frank Memorial Garden, is on Wilmington Drive, off Bagatelle Road in Melville. For more information, call Cergol’s office at 631-351-3173 or email her at jcergol@ huntingtonny.gov.

USDA appoints Kehoe as a seafood industry trade adviser BY DONNA DEEDY DONNA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Local businessman and Village of Northport trustee Tom Kehoe has been appointed an adviser to the Trump administration on international trade in the seafood industry. U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue appointed Kehoe to serve on the USDA’s Agricultural Technical Advisory Committee for Trade in Animals and Animal Products. The group consists of 140 privatesector members, who will offer input on negotiating and enforcing new and existing trade agreements. Kehoe is the only individual representing the seafood industry. Kehoe said that he is honored and humbled that the Department of Agriculture has selected him to serve. “The sustainability and success of the seafood and agriculture industries is vital to the health and safety of all Americans,” Kehoe said. “I look forward to sharing my expertise in international trade and insight on where American trade policy needs to go in order for American businesses to thrive in international markets.” Congress established the advisory

committee system in 1974 to ensure that U.S. agricultural trade policy objectives reflect U.S. public- and private-sector commercial and economic interests. Perdue and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer jointly manage the committee. Kehoe, a native New Yorker, initially got into the seafood business in 1975 in Maine with lobsters. He worked on a daily basis from 1975 to 2017 with fish and fishermen, but now deals largely with importing and exporting seafood. In 1992, Kehoe and business partner Roger Boccio opened K & B Seafood, an East Northport fish market. In 2008, they established Seaflight Logistics, a fish wholesaler that transported food both nationally and internationally. The fishmongers expanded their operation after attending an international fish market and finding a growing market for oysters and shellfish in China and Moscow. Kehoe is currently the CEO of Kingsbridge Strategies Inc., an import/export firm experienced in public policy and business consulting. The international seafood trade remains an important aspect of his operation. “Working with small businesses, large businesses, and eventually growing my own company into an international business, I have a unique understanding of the needs of

Long Island and New York’s businesses — as well as businesses nationwide who rely on international trade — and I look forward to representing these interests on this committee,” Kehoe said. One of Kehoe’s biggest customers for 25 years has been the Grand Central Oyster Bar in Grand Central Station. Sandy Ingber is the executive chef there and part owner of the restaurant. He said that Kehoe’s appointment will help him. In the summer, Ingber said the Oyster Bar offers 20 different types of oysters and each day serves as many 4,000 oysters on the half shell. “Tom is an honest man and knowledgeable about the seafood industry,” he said. “I’m excited about getting European oysters here in America.” Kehoe is also a representative on the U.S. Department of Commerce, New York District Export Council. He formerly served as the president, vice president and director of the East Coast Shellfish Growers Association. Kehoe is a former Northport police commissioner and deputy mayor. Kehoe currently serves as the village’s commissioner of commerce, his third stint at the post. Kehoe’s term with the USDA will expire in 2023.

their home and it would just make it more difficult for them to live here,” he said. Despite being opposed to the accessory apartment ban, Ege said he supports the legislation that would put limitations on short-term rentals in the town. Roger Weaving Jr., president of the Huntington Township Housing Coalition, stated he is in favor of the bill, but asked the board to clarify what they meant by accessory dwelling units. Certain style homes, such as high ranches, could cause some confusion. He stressed that high ranches should be able to continue to have accessory dwellings. With the popularity of Airbnb, residents have complained that these shortterm rentals have negatively impacted their quality of life. In April, the town board voted to reduce the number of days that a homeowner can engage in shortterm rental agreements from 120 days a year to 90 days. Some residents said that the limit is not enough. Justine Aaronson, a Dix Hills resident, complained that accessory apartments affect quality of life. She told the town board of an incident where a stranger’s car with out-of-state plates was parked on their driveway around midnight. Concerned, she called the police and later found out that the individual was staying in a neighbor’s rental unit. “I want the Town of Huntington to protect the quality of life in residential communities,” she said. “We are here with concerns and the town is simply putting Band-aids on our problems. The change to 90 days is a start, but we really have a way to go.” “We’re talking about a win-win-win situation with these amendments as they will make it possible for our older residents to age in place, allow our younger residents to attain the dream of homeownership, all while giving the town a means by which to directly regulate, in many cases, previously illegal rental housing,” said Councilwoman Joan Cergol. “My prior sixteen years in Huntington Town government specializing in economic and community development have deeply sensitized me to the very real financial challenges and housing needs our residents face every day. I’m so gratified to be in a position to answer this call.” The next public hearing is scheduled for July 16 at 2 p.m.

PGA Professional Tom Herzog offers instruction to Bridget Fischer, a golfer with mobility challenges. Photo by David Luces

Crab Meadow Golf Course helps mobility-challenged golfers People with mobility issues took part in a free wheelchair-adaptive golf cart clinic at Crab Meadow Golf Course June 26. The clinic, led by PGA Professional Tom Herzog, showed mobility-challenged golfers how to use a Paramobile, a machine that enables a person to be securely strapped and lifted to a standing position, so they can swing a golf club in a natural stance. The device was designed for individuals with various neurological and muscular disabilities. The Long Island Chapter of the Stand Up and Play Foundation donated the device to the Town of Huntington back in 2017 and is available for public use. Bridget Fischer, Northport resident, took part in the clinic and said the device allows her and others to continue to play a sport they enjoy. “Tom shows them the grip and swing mechanics,” she said. “You have to have a good core in this machine to keep yourself up right.”

Fischer said even beginners or individuals who have never played golf can reap the benefits from the Paramobile with Herzog as their instructor. “Tom shows them everything,” she said. Herzog has been doing these clinics for the past two years and hopes people can take advantage of the device at the golf course. “It gives them an opportunity to go out and play, that’s what they want,” he said. “Teaching is fun.” As part of the agreement with the town, the device can only be used on the front nine holes of the course, because Fischer says the back nine can be hilly and steep. For those interested in learning how to use the Paramobile at the Crab Meadow Golf Course contact Fred Bifulco, at FBifulco@ HuntingtonNY.gov or call 631-351-2873. To learn more about the Paramobile and Stand Up and Play Foundation visit www. standupandplayfoundation.org.

Editorial

After July Fourth, put your fireworks away The showers of sparks that rained down on our heads the night of Fourth of July were inspiring — grandiose and touching all at once. Fireworks and Independence Day go together like old friends, a tradition that touches the heart. Long Island is home to many of these shows, from the Bald Hill spectacle to the fireworks set off on the West Beach in Port Jefferson. Then there are the smaller shows, the ones put on by the local neighborhoods in the cool of night. While the grand displays of the professional shows are like standing in the majesty under the lights of Times Square, the small community shows are more like candles set along the mantle in a dark room. Both can be spectacular in their own ways. Though of course, one is done by amateurs, often in illegal circumstances. And even after the festivities, fireworks continue to light up the sky despite its danger and how it may impact the surrounding community. Unlike other New York counties, Suffolk County has bans on sparklers, along with firecrackers, bottle rockets, Roman candles, spinners and aerial devices. The Suffolk County Fire Marshals beg people to put down their own fireworks and attend one of the professionally manned shows. And it seems they have had good reasons, both past and present, to press people for caution. Two women from Port Jefferson Station were injured with fireworks the night of July Fourth when one ended up in their backyard. While other media outlets reported only light injuries, in fact their injuries were much more severe, and readers will read that story in the coming week’s issue. But of course, the injuries don’t just happen here on the North Shore. A 2018 report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission shows that in 2017, fireworks were involved in an estimated 12,900 injuries. Children under the age of 15 accounted for 36 percent of these injuries. Sparklers accounted for an estimated 1,200 emergency department-treated injuries. And it’s not over yet. Even a week after July Fourth, fireworks continue to go up with sparks and bangs in the din of night. Residents know to handle their pets scared by the booms of fireworks on Independence Day, but should they have to cower with their pets for days and days afterward? And of course, that’s not even to mention U.S. veterans, many of whom know what they must do to stay safe if they are suffering from PTSD on July Fourth, but should they have to sequester themselves every day afterward for a week or more? Sending up fireworks after July Fourth is inconsiderate, to say the least. We at TBR News Media beg people with excess fireworks to put them in packages or put them aside. And next time July Fourth comes around, we urge caution when using these explosives. Nobody should have to find refuge from their neighbors on the day of the birth of this nation.

Letters to the editor

Ban sail dredging to preserve oysters Regarding “Baymen versus baymen”, a story published in The Times of Huntington’s June 20 issue: as a longtime baymen’s advocate, it is difficult to recommend a shellfish code change that some of my oldest friends in the shellfishing community may disagree with. I knew banning sail dredging would divide people I care about, but I believe it is right for the future. The North Shore Baymen’s Association (NSBA) was formed for the preservation of traditional handharvest shellfishery. Sail dredging for oysters evokes romantic images of oyster sloops and schooners, but in practice, dredges are dragged quickly across the bottom to harvest shellfish from the maximum possible area. Historically, the Town of Huntington trustees banned sail dredging to protect oysters in 1842. When sail dredging was brought back in the 1980s the problems were the same: it’s too efficient. Dredgers can

work on thin oyster resources to the point of commercial depletion. Baymen can be seen jerking on teehandles attached to shellfish rakes with long aluminum poles. This harvesting method is less inefficient than sail dredging and therefore, working with traditional rakes results in less area being disturbed and more shellfish left on the bottom to spawn. It is precisely the inefficiency that makes depletion less economically feasible with rakes and tongs than with dredges. The ban stops dredgers, who target the spawning run of horseshoe crabs in Huntington’s waters to protect the Sand City Spit Shorebird Sanctuary and other crab spawning beaches. Horseshoe crab eggs are a critical food source for threatened shorebirds and allowing these six-foot-wide dredges to target the spawning crabs there is incomprehensible. Horseshoe crab dredging also occurs when shellfish and many other species are spawning.

Turbidity and sedimentation associated with this type of dredging can impact spawning success. Oyster larvae are free-swimming for about two weeks, then they settle to the bottom, cementing themselves to a bit of shell or the back of another oyster. Locally, oyster larvae often settle on beds of slipper snails. Prime spawning age for oysters starts at about three years, but oyster can reach harvest size before that. It is important to increase survival of the older, more productive spawning oysters. Opponents of the code change are not put out of business — they are hand-harvesters themselves — they just have to stop dredging. The town trustees voted 5-0 to schedule the public hearing and now they drag their feet. We want to see this resolution brought up for a vote at the town board’s July meeting. Robert Wemyss Secretary, NSBA

The definition of patriotism to me What is patriotism? Is it waving a flag and marching in a parade? Is it calling this nation “the greatest on Earth”? Is it to be celebrated with barbecues and fireworks? (Or tanks on the Lincoln Memorial?) I say, none of the above. For me, true patriotism is looking at ourselves through clear eyes, unafraid to be both critical and loving. It is recognizing that our Founding Fathers were both genius and cruel, calling for independence while owning slaves. It is noting that we are the wealthiest country on Earth that provides the least for its citizens. It is questioning why we are the way we are, and how we can be better, because we love this nation and want it to live up to its promise. This past year, I was preparing a choir for a concert on Veterans Day.

We were rehearsing “America the Beautiful,” and as I was teaching the harmonies, we got into a discussion about the poet, who was a woman. We noted that she wrote this iconic piece as she herself didn’t have equal rights in this nation that she loved — neither did Native Americans or black people, for that matter. And we talked about how both of these things could exist at the same time, how you could love a nation that denied you your rights, how you could support the veterans we were honoring while questioning the foreign policy that sent them to war, how patriotism is all of this and more. It was a really proud moment for me as an educator, a musician and citizen, this moment where it was all laid out on the table, in an honest and authentic way. That is patriotism to me.

I don’t like where we are as a country in this moment. Truth is, I don’t like where we’ve been. But dear God, I love this nation and the people who live here with me. I want us to be better, to finally live up to the unfulfilled promise of this nation that we have yet to realize. I don’t know if, when and how we’ll get there. But I know that it’s part of my life’s work to try. So today, as I write this, with tears streaming down my face, trying to make sense of a country where we put kids in cages and have tanks on the streets of D.C., I reaffirm my patriotism. I won’t wave a flag or beat my chest and scream “Freedom!” to prove it. My passion, my dissent, my voice is what makes me a patriot. Shoshana Hershkowitz South Setauket

Searching for perspective after a crummy softball game

W

hen I was younger, I was the best baseball player who ever lived. OK, maybe that’s a wee bit of an exaggeration. Maybe I was a decent player who had a few good games, surrounded by periods of agonizing ineffectiveness, miserable failure and frustrating inadequacies. Baseball, as its numerous fans will suggest regD. None ularly, is a game of failure. And yet of the above those exquisite BY DANIEL DUNAIEF moments of success — when we break up a no-hitter, get to a ball that seemed destined for open grass

or develop the speed to outrun the laser throw from the outfield — make us feel as if we can do anything. Recently, I have found myself frustrated beyond the normal measure of perspective because I feel as if I’ve lost a step or six when I play softball. My current athletic deficiencies seem to be a harsh reminder of the inexorable journey through time. As I return from the game in the car, I sometimes bark questions at myself, wondering how I missed an easy pop-up, or how I lunged for yet another pitch I should have hit. My family, who comes to the games to support me, watches me dissolve into a puddle of self-loathing. Yes, I know, it’s not my finest hours as a parent and I know I’m setting a terrible example. And yet something inside of me, which is both young and old, can’t control the frustration. I’m an older version of the kid who was so annoyed with his own deficiencies that he kicked a basketball over some trees. OK, maybe they were hedges and I

probably threw the ball, but in my memory the offending orb traveled a great distance. So, what was and sometimes is missing from my life that caused these games to be so important? Other than talent, conditioning, plenty of sleep and a commitment to practicing, my biggest problem was, and sometimes still is, a lack of perspective. People suffer through much greater hardships than a decline in limited athletic skills. Life is filled with challenges and inspiration. People overcome insurmountable odds, push themselves far beyond any expectations by taking small steps for mankind or even small steps for themselves when they weren’t expected to walk at all. As I know, I am fortunate in many ways to have the opportunity and time to play softball at all. To be sure, I recognize that perspective isn’t what people generally need when they care about something large or small: They need focus. Artists spending countless hours painting, writing, revising, editing or reshooting a scene for a movie to enable the

reality of their art to catch up to their vision or imagination often lose themselves in their efforts, forgetting to eat, to call their parents or siblings, to sleep or to take care of other basic needs. Considerable perspective could prevent them from finding another gear or producing their best work. And yet perspective, particularly in a moment like a softball game, can soothe the escalated competitor and give the father driving a car with his supportive family a chance to appreciate the people around him and laugh about his inadequacies, rather than dwell on them. In a movie, perspective often comes from a camera that climbs high into the sky or from someone looking through a window at his children playing in a yard or at a picture of his family in a rickety rowboat. Perhaps if we find ourselves tumbling down the staircase of anger, frustration or resentment, we can imagine handrails we can grab that allow us to appreciate what we have and that offer another way of reacting to life.

Women’s soccer winners level the playing field

L

ast week a theme in this column was a defense of men. In a neat turnabout, this week is a shoutout for women. The catalyst, of course, is the victory of the United States women’s soccer team. We all watched or cheered Sunday as they defeated the Netherlands team, 2-0, to win the four-yearly Women’s World Cup championship in France. And we all felt tremendous pride in their accomplishment on behalf of our nation. Let’s face it. They won beBetween cause they had to win. They became you and me symbols of issues BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF larger than themselves, and in order to drive home those issues most effectively,

they had to be winners. You might even say they leveled the playing field in multiple ways. In becoming winners, they achieved a record four championships for the United States since the tournament began in 1991, this while the men’s counterpart fell later that day in the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup final to the rival Mexico team, 1-0, in Chicago. The fact that the most visible and outspoken women’s team member, Megan Rapinoe, who was named most valuable player and who also won the Golden Boot for being the highest scorer, was repeatedly identified as a lesbian, gave her the additional burden of championing the rights of marginalized communities. And the swelling chorus of “Equal pay! Equal pay!” from the spectators at the end of the match was a victory for social justice that brought tears to my eyes and similarly affected many other women in the workplace. In 1963, when I was interviewing for a position with Time Inc. in New York City, I was told that my salary would be $65 dollars per week. Since I had been supporting my husband,

who was a medical intern, and myself for several months already, I knew that we could not manage on that pay and said so to the interviewer. “Well,” she explained, “the men in that position earn $110 because they are the family wage earner.” “But I am the wage earner for my family,” I objected. “Why is that, dear?” she asked. “Because my husband gets $30 a month at the hospital and has to use that money to launder his ‘whites’ (intern’s hospital uniforms).” “Oh, then we’ll pay you the $110,” she consented. I left her office thrilled that I had the job, but my cheeks were burning because I felt like a secondclass citizen. Some 10 years later, there was a class-action lawsuit from a large group of women employees against the company demanding equal pay for equal work. It took years, but eventually they won. This has been a private uphill fight, corporation by corporation, agency by agency, for what should be so obvious, and that struggle is still going on, more than 55 years later. The difference is that now it is a public matter and the injustice rings out to fill a sports stadium. “It’s complicated,” answers the United States

Soccer Federation, trying to explain where the money comes from and how it is allocated. To heck with that! It’s always complicated to right social wrongs, to win social change. Old views have to be altered, windows of the mind have to be opened. These women athletes have thrown those windows open wide. Furthermore, why should I care whether the star player is gay? That makes as much difference as knowing whether she paints her toenails purple or showers in the morning or at night. Do I need to know if the orchestra conductor at Carnegie Hall is a Republican or a Democrat? Or whether the chef in my favorite restaurant is right-handed or left-handed? Let’s get real. For those who refer to the “good ole days,” nostalgia can have its place. But I say thanks for the world we live in today, where any number of social injustices have come out of the woodwork and into the light. Before they can be changed, they must be acknowledged. Their emergence has been possible because of talented warriors like the U.S. women’s soccer team.

Health Information from Local Health Care Professionals

Neena Chaudhari, MD Board Certified Internist and Geriatrician St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center Office Location: 403 Lake Avenue, St. James, NY 11780

What sets St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center’s internal medicine and geriatric programs apart from other institutions? A. Our patients have access to world-class specialists and primary care providers. The administration at St. Catherine make primary care a priority, and provide great support for primary care services. We also offer services that patients may not find at other facilities, including home care, care coordination and physical therapy. All of these teams work together to support our practices. Catholic Health Services of Long Island also has a mission to provide compassionate care free of charge, and some of the doctors and practices donate their time to provide services in underserved areas.

What role does your team play in terms of treatment of your geriatric patients? A. When caring for my older patients with chronic conditions, our goal is to coordinate care, balance competing needs, reduce poly pharmacy and avoid functional decline. We want patients to be independent as long as possible. My patients have different wants and needs, whether it’s living independently, going to church, seeing their grandchildren, or traveling. As a team, we help them accomplish those things safely.

What drew you to medicine and your chosen specialties? A. All of the physicians who have been my teachers and who have taught me compassionate care and how to look at a whole person and not just their illness are a big reason why I do what I do today. While in training, I was drawn to the idea of being involved with a patient’s care in the long term. The relationship does not end when the patient walks out of my office. I like the continuity and the opportunity to support the whole person. I also enjoy collaborating with other physicians to find comprehensive solutions for my patients.

What types of services do you offer? A. We offer a full spectrum of medical care, including preventive care, cancer care, immunizations, electrocardiogram testing, pulmonary function testing, hearing screenings and vision screenings. For our geriatric patients, we focus on managing complex diseases. As my patients get older, helping them be functional is increasingly important. Specifically, we work through conditions such as advanced cardiac disease, Alzheimer’s disease and osteoarthritis.

What is the most rewarding part of your work? A. My patients — they are all so different, and they all truly inspire me. My older patients are very generous and kind people from whom I have much to learn. It is powerfully inspiring and motivating for me to help improve the quality of life of my patient’s by providing compassionate, thorough care.
