BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM It was no sweat for the Town of Huntington officials to open their first interactive spray water park July 11 to the sound of children laughing and playing in the summer heat. The Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo Memorial Spray Park, located along Cuba Hill Road in Elwood Park, is dedicated to Huntington native and fallen New York City police Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo whose family attended the park’s opening. “Happiness was something that Paul brought to everyone he met,” Tuozzolo’s wife, Lisa, said. “Even though the smiles don’t make up for all the heartbreak that my family and I have suffered, it does prove just how much Paul did and how much he meant to his fellow officers and his community.” The interactive spray park contains multiple water features, including several buttonactivated water jets, water spraying hoops and overhead buckets that fill up and dump down onto children’s heads. The largest bucket that hangs several meters off the ground is labeled with big block letters spelling “NYPD.” A 19-year veteran of the NYPD, Tuozzolo was working for the 43rd Precinct in the Soundview section of the Bronx in November 2016 when he was shot and killed responding to what was initially reported as a home invasion, and later found to be a domestic incident. A police dispatcher told responding officers that a man who had broken into the home was fleeing in a car, which Tuozzolo

Upon approaching the vehicle, the suspect shot Tuozzolo, who later died of his injuries. “The Sergeant made the ultimate sacrifice, he warned other officers of the same fate,” Supervisor Chad Lupinacci (R) said. “But let’s not reflect on how he died, but on how he lived. He believed in service and love for the community.” The police officer is survived by his wife and two young sons Austin and Joseph. The family was strongly involved with the

initial proposal for the park and later its design, according to former Huntington Supervisor Frank Petrone (D) when the project was first announced in September 2017. “This is absolutely fantastic — one of the best dedications I’ve ever seen,” Terry Monahan, NYPD’s chief of department, said. “To have this in his hometown really means something.” The park is 4,900 square feet in area with 2,500 square feet of active play features, according to town Civil Engineer Ed Parrish,

the project manager for the spray park. Parrish added that the spray pad water runoff will be collected and reused for field irrigation at Elwood Park. Right up until a week before the park opened last minute touches were being added, including the gate’s memorial trellis, which was installed July 5. Town spokesperson Lauren Lembo said that the project was finished on schedule, but a new sanitary system for the park is expected to be finished by spring 2019. Ridge-based Laser Industries Inc. and its subcontractors were paid approximately $610,000 to build the spray park, which included installing the new waterlines, spray features, concrete and safety features as well as the custom park benches and memorial trellis. Town of Huntiwgton employees were paid $50,000 to install a new 4-inch water line into the park as well as the sprinkler system, sidewalk and fencing. Parrish said that trained staff are being provided with first aid equipment and umbrellas to monitor the kids at play. Only children age 13 or younger are allowed to use the spray park. Parents or guardians must show a Resident Recreation Photo ID or that day’s picnic permit to gain access to the park. Official hours will be 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., but with this year’s planned playground camp being held at Elwood Park, it will be open to the public from Monday through Friday, 12:30 to 8 p.m. now through Aug. 10.

The director of Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center has submitted his resignation, leaving the facility after a year at the helm. Scott Guermonprez’s last day leading the Northport VA will be July 14 as he intends to retire after more than 30 years of military and federal service. “Having the opportunity to come back to Long Island and my home, Northport, as a capstone assignment is a wonderful and awesome way to finalize my career,” Guermonprez said. The director said this is effectively his second retirement from service. Guermonprez said he built his career in the military health care system serving as an administrator there for 24 years, before initially filing for retirement. At the last minute, he transferred to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to begin serving other veterans. Guermonprez worked for three years at Albany VA Medical Center before coming to Long Island. “We’ve had a great time with health care professionally in Albany and Northport leading change, positive change we needed to make happen,” he said. “I am excitedly looking forward to future opportunities with family.”

Guermonprez said he believes he is leaving Northport’s facilities in better condition than when he arrived, claiming he’s improved the timely access to health care for veterans by making same-day appointments available for primary care and adding an increased capacity for telehealth, where elderly veterans can now use technology to talk and consult with their physicians from the comfort of their home. Dr. Cathy Cruise, recently promoted to permanent chief of staff at Northport VA, will step up to serve as the acting director while a national search is conducted to find Guermonprez’s successor. “I can say I’m very happy to serve in the acting director position for as long as it takes; it’s an honor,” said Cruise, a Huntington native. “I’ve grew up here and developed my love of medicine here.” Cruise has worked at the Northport center for approximately two years but has spent more than 23 years serving with the VA. She will take the reins of the $15 million in capital projects currently underway at the facility and, possibly, the long-awaited demolition of two buildings Guermonprez has focused on, for which permits were received and authorized July 5. “I wish I could be here for it, but I’ve asked Dr. Cruise to save a brick for me,” he said.

Huntington Harbor Lighthouse reopens to tours after 2 years $1.1M in foundation repairs complete BY SARA-MEGAN WALSH SARA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Huntington Harbor Lighthouse while under repairs in September 2017

©149939

The jewel of Huntington Harbor will be opening its doors to welcome visitors for the first time in more than two years. The Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society Inc., a nonprofit dedicated to defending the structure it’s named after since the 1980s, will offer its first tour of the lighthouse July 15 after completing $1.1 million in repairs. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held July 11 to celebrate the structure’s reopening. “It’s been a very long two years,” said Pamela Setchell, president of the preservation society. “We keep walking around pinching ourselves that we did it. We did it. We’re thrilled out of our minds.” Tours of the lighthouse will be offered by volunteers on a first-come, first-serve basis from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. once a month. Guests must be wearing flat, rubber-soled shoes to board the boat, according to Setchell. The organization last offered a tour of the historic landmark in September 2015 before the building was closed for phase one of restoration efforts to its exterior foundation. The lighthouse was in danger of becoming unstable and crumbling into the water. Frank Scobbo, vice president of Port Washington-based Scobbo Foundation Systems, was hired as the contractor to shore up the 100-year-old structure. “It was a labor of love, commitment and dedication to get the jewel of the harbor repaired,” Scobbo said. He and his approximately 10-person staff took on the daunting task of replacing the damaged rebar, or steel reinforcement, in the lighthouse’s foundation, fixing and patching sheetrock and patching concrete in the underwater structure. “The sheer location was one of the primary issues,” Scobbo said. Working on a building located a mile offshore, the contractor said extensive pre-planning was necessary to account for the tides, currents and changing weather conditions each day. In 2016, a sudden squall sent waves crashing over the deck of a barge full of stone for the lighthouse’s base, causing it to take on water, according Scobbo. It required a rapid response of two Huntington Bay constables, Stephen Taylor and Timothy Lutz, and Scobbo’s crew to prevent the boat from sinking. “It was very scary, it probably took a couple of years off my life,” Scobbo said. All supplies and equipment needed to be transported to shore via boat and a single forgotten item could have meant a 45-minute trip back to shore, according to the contractor. Scobbo said these challenges made the lighthouse’s restoration one of the most difficult projects he’s ever worked on, having previously repaired Stepping Stones Lighthouse in Nassau County and restored a 200-year-old Times Square building. The Huntington Harbor Lighthouse still requires some additional work, according to the contractor, including the placement of more boulders on the east side of the structure and window replacements. “They have a lot of work to do, but now the most important part is done,” Scobbo said. The cost of the project was paid for through approximately $740,000 fundraised by the preservation society that was used to secure a matching $250,000 state grant, and a $145,000 grant received from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation in September 2017. Those interested in taking a tour of Huntington Harbor Lighthouse can find a full list of tour dates on the preservation society’s website at www.huntingtonlighthouse.org/tours.php. Tickets cost $20 per adult, $15 for seniors and $10 for children age 5 or older, with family discounts available. Children younger than age 5 are not permitted due to safety issues and insurance concerns.

Florida authorities determined the materials had originated in Suffolk. They contacted Suffolk County Police Department’s computer crimes unit, which investigated the origin of the images and videos through the files’ metadata and was able to identify the victims. The charges Fieldman pled guilty to include two counts of first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, two counts of second-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, 11 counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child, 11 counts of using a child in a sexual performance and endangering the welfare of a child. He is currently serving a 10-year sentence in Florida, where he pled guilty to felony sex crimes involving children in June 2017. Fielman will serve the two sentences concurrently.

Suffolk County District Attorney Tim Sini (D) announced a former Commack babysitter will face 18 years in jail after admitting to committing sexual crimes against three children in his care between 2009 and 2014. Benjamin Fielman, 27, a current resident of Century, Florida, pleaded guilty to 27 counts of sexual misconduct May 24 in First District Court in Central Islip. He was sentenced June 29 by Suffolk Judge Barbara Kahn to 18 years in prison followed by 20 years of supervision. “This defendant used his position of trust and guardianship to victimize young children for his own sick sexual gratification,” Sini said. “While there is no amount of jail time that can alleviated the trauma he caused his victims, today’s sentence is a significant step toward holding him accountable for his depraved actions and preventing more children from having to suffer at the hands of this individual.” Suffolk police worked in cooperation with the Florida state attorney’s office since 2014 to bring Fielman back to Long Island to face criminal charges for his actions. Fielman worked as an assistant teacher at Suffolk Y Jewish Community Center in Commack for four years, from 2008 to 2011, and as a private babysitter, not related to any service or agency. During this time, Fielman sexually abused three unrelated boys ranging in age from 7 to 11 and was allegedly taking sexually explicit photos and videos, according to officials. Florida state authorities executed a search warrant on Fielman’s home after he was arrested in 2014, according to Sini, where

Long Island Sound

Three men rescued from LI Sound Suffolk County Police Marine Bureau officers rescued three men after their canoe overturned in the Long Island Sound in Northport Friday, July 6. An employee of PSEG’s Northport Power Station observed three males in the Long Island Sound hanging onto their canoe that had overturned approximately 300 yards off shore, according to police. The individual called Suffolk County Police Marine Bureau directly and Officers Paul Carnival, Keith Walters and John Falcone responded at

approximately 2:50 p.m. The officers arrived about three minutes later and assisted Javier Villatoro, 27, of Brentwood, his brother Jose Villatoro, 25, of Central Islip, and Odir Vilorio, 30, of Huntington Station, onto Marine Bravo. Villatoro was the only one of the three wearing a life jacket. The men and their canoe were transported to the Soundview boat ramp in Northport. The men refused medical attention. — SARA-MEGAN WALSH

PSEG answers call to protect Centerport’s bald eagles SARA-MEGAN WALSH

Two of Centerport’s biggest celebrities are safer thanks to quick action taken to protect these majestic winged beauties, much to the delight of their paparazzi. PSEG Long Island announced, prior to the Fourth of July, it had answered the calls of Centerport residents asking the company to help protect a nesting pair of American bald eagles and their two eaglets from dangers posed by two nearby electrical poles. During the last week of June, PSEG crews wrapped bright orange insulation around the electrical wires and the transformers on top of two poles on Centershore Road near the intersection of Route 25A, according to Dan Wickstrom, a manager for PSEG. “We were so concerned when we found the eaglets were landing on the wires,” Bruce Adams, of Northport, said. “As you all know, when linesmen are up on wires they are exposed to tremendous danger and we did not want that danger to impact the birds.” Adams is one of the thousands of residents and bird-watchers who have flocked to Centerport hoping to catch a glimpse of The Commodore and Mrs. Vanderbilt, as the mated pair of eagles is affectionately nicknamed. The names were chosen by a growing number of bird-watchers on the Facebook group Bald Eagles of Centerport, NY, which has more than 8,000 followers, some who

Shortly thereafter, two eggs appeared in the nest and a pair of fledglings hatched in April. As the young birds began to fly, Adams said he and other bird-watchers were

alarmed to see the eaglets landing and perching on two power poles with transformers close to the nest. He said he reached out to Suffolk County Legislator William “Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport) for help. “Centerport is already a picturesque place and the presence of these birds only adds to its beauty,” Spencer said. “I was happy to play a role in the community effort to protect the eaglets that thousands of residents have come to treasure.” Spencer said he contacted PSEG and received a response within hours that they

were willing to take action to protect the birds. “A part of our mission is to be engaged in the community and be good stewards of the environment,” Wickstrom said. “We were happy to get involved and take some corrective action to make things safer.” Wickstrom said the animal protective caps should stay in place and last through the summer as the eaglets continue to grow and learn to fly. The utility company is looking to install similar protective features on six additional poles in the Centerport area in the coming weeks, according to Wickstrom.

COUNTY

NYPD intelligence bureau deputy named Suffolk undersheriff One of New York City’s finest is bringing a wealth of experience to Suffolk County. The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office announced the hiring of Kevin Catalina, a 26-year veteran of the New York City Police Department, as Sheriff Errol Toulon Jr.’s (D) new undersheriff, the department’s second in command. As of Aug. 1, Catalina, 51, will get started in the position, joining current Undersheriff Steve Kuehhas, who was appointed to the post by Toulon’s predecessor Sheriff Vincent DeMarco (R) and will continue serving in that role. Catalina was born and raised in Sayville, graduated from Sayville High School and has lived on Long Island his entire life. Toulon spoke highly of Catalina and said he is optimistic about the value he can add to the department. “During my six months in office, I was searching for the very best talent to help me lead the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office into the future, and we are very fortunate that Kevin has accepted the position of undersheriff,” Toulon said in a statement. He is a resident of Long Island and knows our communities well, but he also brings a high level of expertise from the NYPD that will help drive innovation and reduce crime in Suffolk County.” Catalina has a vast and varied history with the NYPD, having served in many crucial positions, including in the NYPD’s counterterrorism and countergang initia-

tives. He is currently serving as the deputy chief and commanding officer of the NYPD Intelligence Bureau in the Operational and Analytical Section, which oversees all proactive counterterrorism investigations in New York City. He started with the NYPD in 1992. He was promoted to sergeant in 1998, and soon after was transferred to the Queens Gang Squad as a sergeant. He was then promoted two times within the Queens Gang Squad to lieutenant and then captain, where he served until 2005. Catalina then transferred to Manhattan, where he was put in charge of an upperManhattan precinct covering public housing. He was later promoted once again to deputy inspector and was put in charge of Manhattan’s 32nd Precinct. After three years in charge of the 32nd, he was transferred and became the captain of the 44th Precinct in the Bronx, which covers Yankee Stadium and the surrounding area. When NYPD Commissioner William Bratton was reinstated in 2014, Catalina became the captain of the NYPD’s Citywide Gang Unit, where he oversaw more than 350 detectives, and developed and implemented all gang investigative and suppression strategies utilized throughout the city. According to the NYPD, he is recognized as a subjectmatter expert in gang violence and crime reduction strategies and pioneered an initiative in the South Bronx that resulted in a 40 percent reduction in shooting incidents. In 2016, Catalina was transferred to Man-

hattan North and became the executive officer, second in command, of all precincts above 59th Street. He then made his final transfer to commanding officer of the Operational and Analytical Section, where he will serve until July 31. Catalina said he was confident his experience in gang relations would be effective in dealing with the gang MS-13, one of the foremost concerns for law enforcement in Suffolk County currently. “We really started to understand the gang issue around 2010 or 2011 and we saw a dramatic drop in violence,” he said. “We put together violence conspiracy cases using every possible bit of information we could get from social media, to jail calls and text messaging. We were able to prove conspiracies to commit violent acts, and once these kids realized they could actually get in trouble, the violence was seriously curtailed. MS-13 is no different than any other gang. People look at them like they’re this big bad organization, but ultimately they’re no different than the gangs we dealt with in New York City.” Toulon said he was also optimistic about the success of the Gang Resistance Education and Training Program, which he implemented a few months back prior to learning of Catalina’s interest in the undersheriff position. Toulon said he visited Washington, D.C., to garner more funding for the program. Gang activity in Suffolk has become a topic of national discussion, thanks in large part to the light shone on it by President Donald Trump

Newly appointed Suffolk County Undersheriff Kevin Catalina. (R), including in a visit he made to the Suffolk County Police Academy in Brentwood in 2017. “Gang recruitment usually starts at the middle school level, and that’s what the GREAT program is geared toward,” Toulon said. “We have deputy sheriffs and corrections officers that work with these kids in communities that are adversely affected by gangs, and I’m advocating for additional funding [for this program].” Catalina’s addition, joining Kuehhas, will help round out the leadership in the sheriff’s office, according to Toulon. “I was looking for another component because Steve Kuehhas, who will be remaining with me, has a strong legal background, and my background is in corrections, so adding Undersheriff Catalina with a strong police background brings a great asset to the sheriff’s office,” Toulon said.

Despite dangers, illegality, firework shows go on BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Every Fourth of July, if only for a few hours, Long Islanders create their own stars in the night sky. If one drives down the side streets and residential neighborhoods late at night on America’s birthday, one can hear a chorus of whistles and pops from every direction. People in local neighborhoods sit in lawn chairs with their necks craned to the night sky to watch the lights flash high over their own roofs. All those involved know that, without a license, it’s illegal to own, sell and, especially, to light any fireworks in New York state, but this is Independence Day, and the date demands ceremony. On one street in Port Jefferson Station, where locals hosted their own fireworks show, the air was suffused with a burning smoke that smelled like brimstone and burning paper. Fireworks enthusiast Louie, who agreed to comment if his last name would be withheld, along with his brother and their friends, laid out rows of mortars stretching more than 10 yards down the street. For close to two hours nonstop the fireworks illuminated the sky and onlookers cheered. “Jones Beach does it, Bald Hill does it ... why can’t we do it?” Louie said. Louie said he has helped set off his block’s firework display for four years, and each July Fourth his group sets off more than $2,000 worth of fireworks. Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D) warned residents ahead of the holiday in a YouTube video that the county would be enacting a zero-tolerance policy for the possession, use and sale of illegal fireworks. “We are here today to talk about the Fourth of July and how we all love to get together and celebrate,” Bellone said in the video. “We always hear about these inci-

dents happening and they are unnecessary, preventable injuries.” Officials asked Suffolk residents to attend licensed firework shows going on all across the Island, rather than creating their own events. There were shows at Bald Hill, in Wading River, at Peconic Riverfront in Riverhead, on East Beach in Port Jefferson, on Shelter Island and at the Long Island Ducks stadium in Bethpage, to name a few. Suffolk County is stricter on fireworks than other parts of the state. While New York passed a law in January that made owning sparklers legal, in Suffolk owning a sparkler remains a misdemeanor. Owning certain fireworks, like the M-80s, which were originally designed by the United States military to simulate gunfire, or the mortar-type of fireworks, is a Class E felony subject to up to four years in prison. Several individuals were arrested this year and charged with crimes of possessing and selling fireworks. In June, a Medford man was arrested for having $100,000 worth of fireworks in a storage facility. Later that same month, an Oakdale man was arrested for bringing $2,000 worth of fireworks home from Pennsylvania and selling them online. “We take it very seriously,” 4th Precinct Capt. Kevin Williams said at the June 1 Smithtown Town board meeting. “All fireworks are illegal, and that includes sparklers. Some of the larger fireworks that we see today, the M-80 fireworks or the mortars that people shoot up, those are designated as explosives under New York State Labor Law.” The danger presented by misusing fireworks is real. Nationally, fireworks were identified in 12,900 hospital visits and eight deaths in 2017, according to a report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission released in June this year. Suffolk police reported that a man from Gordon Heights lost three of his fingers

Residents prepare July Fourth at-home firework shows in Port Jefferson Station. after a firework exploded in his hand this year. Another woman, a Florida resident who was visiting her family in Mastic, was injured after she tossed a lit cigarette in an ashtray which caused a firework that had been placed there to explode. The detonation severed the tip of one finger and injured other fingers on her right hand. Both were sent to Stony Brook University Hospital for their injuries. Dr. Steven Sandoval, medical director of Suffolk County Volunteer Firefighters Burn Center at Stony Brook University Hospital, said the last weeks of June and the first two weeks of July are the peak in terms of burn center patients. On average his unit receives five to 10 patients every Fourth of July season, and that’s not including those who arrive to the hospital with other, non-burn related injuries. By July 5 this year, the burn center received four patients who had injuries related to fireworks, but Sandoval said they would not know the total number of injuries until a month has passed. “Every other year there’s a fatal or nearfatal event that occurs from fireworks,” Sandoval said. “This is a vulnerable population,

who might already be intoxicated, inebriated or have been standing out in the sun all day … people should leave fireworks to the professionals.” Those people setting off the pyrotechnic display in Port Jeff Station said they understood the hazard that fireworks presented. “We’re all organized, not drunk, professional and we have order,” Louie said. “We have communication, and communication is key.” Still, there is always danger when it comes to explosives. The street in Port Jeff Station was bordered by power lines and trees that an off-course rocket could potentially strike. One neighbor put large towels and cardboard boxes on her fence to mitigate any potential burn damage. After the grand finale, where the group let off their last rockets and mortars, they started to throw loud firecrackers into the street. One of them bounced into a neighbor’s yard right next to a fence. The firework exploded and dug a small hole an inch deep into the dirt. Despite it all, the neighbors laughed and cheered anyway.

SPORTS DESIREE KEEGAN

Clockwise from top left, Suffolk’s allstars walk off the field; Dave Argenzio crosses home; Argenzio congratulates a fellow all-star; Ed Carney takes a swing; Tim Rocklein makes contact; and Suffolk celebrates a big play.

Suffolk seniors best Nassau on softball field BY DESIRÉE KEEGAN The fireworks came a day late for a group of Suffolk senior softball players. A thriller ensued in a battle between some of Long Island’s best 65 and older softball players. Down 7-6 in the bottom of the ninth inning, Tim Rocklein smacked a pitch to right field with runners on first and second with no outs, and Ed Carney hit a sacrifice fly to score Dave Argenzio in a walk-off, 8-7 thriller as Suffolk edged Nassau in the first-ever Super Seniors AllStar game July 5. “It got closer and closer, and why get a lead early when you can get the lead and go home?” head coach Paul Killian said, laughing. “I was losing so much sleep afraid that, A, it was going to rain, and, B, it wouldn’t turn out right. I couldn’t be happier with the way it ended.” Rocklein’s game-tying single served as a bit of redemption. The Islip Terrace resident had made back-to-back errors in a four-run second inning for Nassau. “It’s really wonderful how the team came through at the end,” said Rocklein, a former student of Killian’s at St. John the Baptist Diocesan High School in West Islip. “It was a team effort. We all won.” The Suffolk offensive onslaught was contagious. Down 6-1 heading into the bottom of the seventh, base hits by John Carmichael and Carney set up an RBI-single for Louis Re. Later in the inning, Mike Cavanagh hit an in-the-park bases-clearing

home run to pull Suffolk within one, 6-5. “We were just hoping to be competitive,” Cavanagh said. “I flew out the first two times, so it felt great to come through with a hit.” Rocklein said he saw the hit a bit differently. “You could feel everyone’s spirits go from 20 to 190,” he said, grinning from ear to ear. “It’s an emotional game. We didn’t give up. We were all there for each other, and in the end, we prevailed.” Assistant coach Victor Scalone, of Sound Beach, said he was impressed by his team, especially considering the Nassau team had three more full league teams to choose from when assembling its All-Star roster. Suffolk pulled off three double plays, with middle infielder Fred Taal helping turn two of them to John Petraglia at first. Catcher Tony Laino, who led off the bottom of the ninth with a single, helped complete the other, which ended a Nassau scoring threat. Tom Gomez went the distance on the mound, also collecting two hits. “We’re all older players, and we just wanted to look respectable in this game,” Scalone said. “We’ll be talking about this for a long time.” The assistant coach pointed to the home run by Cavanagh as having ignited the team. Killian, a Holbrook resident, said he’s in awe of what the sport can do for him and his players. “I feel like I’m 16 again,” he said. “The fireworks were a day delayed, but they’re here.”

“Twinkie” and “Cupcake” were dropped off at a Louisiana shelter to be destroyed because their owner wanted to buy a new puppy. So sad but true. These two best friends are sweet as pie and don’t have a mean bone in their bodies. They need the kind of pure love that they gave but never received. Do you have it to give?

OPINION Editorial

Letters to the editor

The Fourth of July may be over but, as many Long Islanders know, the firework shows have just begun. Despite New York State and Suffolk County laws prohibiting the use of pyrotechnics without a license, and a recent declaration by Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D) of a zero-tolerance policy on fireworks, many residents get a hold of them and use them anyway on and around the holiday. We’ve all been there. The Fourth of July falls on a weekday, we have to work the next day and out of nowhere ... BOOM, a whistle and the sky lights up. The displays go on for hours even though we don’t live near a venue that has hired the Gruccis. On random summer nights, unexpected fireworks wake babies up and upset pets at the most inconvenient times. Recently, the county banned sparkling devices — sparklers and fountains — despite the state deeming them legal. The change left us wondering how Suffolk officials can impose a new law when all summer long it’s apparent that prior laws prohibiting fireworks from being purchased or used by individuals in their neighborhoods aren’t enforced. Firecrackers, ground spinners, Roman candles, bottle rockets, cherry bombs and more have become summer staples. There are many reasons besides being a public nuisance that the laws need to be enforced. Untrained individuals using fireworks put themselves in harm’s way, as local hospital emergency rooms fill up with those with burned or missing fingers or damaged eyes. There are plenty of people who are minding their own business in their backyard when they get hit with the ash of fireworks or pyrotechnics destroy property by landing on roofs, leaving holes in lawns or burnt marks on fences. There are also veterans who, when they hear fireworks, are reminded of traumatic memories of fighting on battlefields with gunfire and bombs going off around them. Many who have served in the military suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, something firework aficionados need to be mindful of should a neighbor be afflicted. While some who suffer from PTSD alert their neighbors by posting signs on their lawns asking for their consideration, should it really be their responsibility? Before Suffolk tries to stop people from holding a stick that sparkles, police officers need to enforce the laws that are already on the books. The warnings about zero tolerance sound great, but as a TBR News Media reporter sent out July Fourth to get a feel for the breadth of illegal fireworks in the community can attest, the skies were lit up far and wide. Considering the penalty fees attached to illegal use of fireworks — up to $500 for the use of just a sparkling device — the county could rake in a nice amount of money if they cracked down, not just on the Fourth of July but year round. Residents can play a part in protecting their fellow citizens, too. Don’t be afraid to speak up when you see a police car in your neighborhood after hearing or seeing fireworks. Or, before it gets to that point, talk with your friends and family who may be setting off fireworks at home and tell them it isn’t the best idea. To be clear: We’re not against having a good time and fully embracing the celebration of our country’s independence. But fireworks belong in the hands of professionals, not in the mitts of your average citizen two doors down.

New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is facing a serious challenge from the left from Cynthia Nixon in this year’s Democratic primary. The party bosses are concerned enough that they have called in big national figures to endorse Cuomo, including getting the DNC chairman, Tom Perez, to break his pledge to stay out of primary races. At the local level, here on Long Island, battle lines are being drawn, with numerous progressive, grassroots groups endorsing Nixon and the party apparatus backing Cuomo. In backing Cuomo, the party bosses have engaged in clear hypocrisy, ignoring many of the arguments that they used to support Hillary Clinton (D) in 2016 and to resist now President Donald Trump (R). Throughout the 2015-16 primary and general election, voters were repeatedly told that it was time for Clinton because it was time for a female president. Those who failed to support her, despite very real and serious policy objections, were often accused of sexism. Madeleine Albright, former U.S. secretary of state for President Bill Clinton, famously quipped at one of Clinton’s rallies that, “There is a special place in hell for women who do not support other women.” Yet now, when we have a major female contender for the governor’s office with a progressive record, the party makes no such claims about the possibility of New York’s first female governor. Nixon and her supporters have been maligned, and one prominent Cuomo supporter from New York City even went so far as calling Nixon an “unqualified lesbian.” No doubt, Albright will be here any

More enforcement needed with fireworks

Cuomo’s hate for Trump is pure hypocrisy

minute to defend Nixon. Of course, that won’t happen. History has shown that claims of sexism are only allowed to be used to fend off progressive challengers to the party’s picks and never the other way around. America is clearly long overdo for a female president. But isn’t New York also long overdo for a female governor? Another example of hypocrisy comes from the refusal to recognize that several of the key characteristics that Democrats hate about Trump are clearly present in Cuomo. He is known for a bullying mentality, most recently displayed in his angry backlash to the Working Families Party choosing to endorse Nixon over him. Like Trump, Cuomo’s entire career is based on the fact that his father was very successful, opening all sorts of doors for him. Does anyone seriously think that Andrew Cuomo would be governor if his last name wasn’t Cuomo? The most troubling similarity is the way in which they flaunt their corruption. While Democrats are outraged by Trump’s decision to fire FBI director James Comey and

potentially obstruct justice in several ways, few have been willing to call out Cuomo’s disgraceful decision to disband the Committee for Public Corruption, which he had created. New York is known as one of the most corrupt state governments in the nation; but when the commission began to investigate his actions, Cuomo simply ended the commission. This is truly outrageous behavior that should have every Democrat up in arms. Instead, the party has continued to support him fully. There are some huge differences between Trump and Cuomo, and one can obviously support Cuomo while despising Trump based on those differences. But those who attack Trump for the specific failings listed above while absolutely ignoring those same failings in Cuomo are engaging in rank, partisan hypocrisy. This is the kind of behavior that has led so many Americans to reject the political parties, distrust our institutions and argue that all politicians are crooks. We must do better.

Encouraging first-time voters I have a first-time voter in my household which is very exciting. She will be given a voice in our democratic process this year. The 2014 midterm election saw the lowest turnout in our country since World War II. It is important to help our young people understand the responsibility that comes with this right. They might need some guidance in the process. I would ask them: “Have you registered to vote?” If not, you can do that at the website www.suffolkvotes.com. Will you be home on Nov. 6 or away at college? An absentee ballot can be requested at the same website.

What issues are important to you, gun control, the environment, higher education? Help the young people gather information. If they are not comfortable calling the offices of those running for office, make the call together with the phone on speaker and ask those currently in office who are requesting another term, what they are actively doing regarding these issues. In the 1st Congressional District, U. S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R) can be reached at 631-2094235 (Riverhead office); 631289-1097 (Patchogue office); or 202-225-3826 (Washington,

D.C., office). Ask those seeking office what they plan to do on these issues. Perry Gershon, Democratic candidate for 1st Congressional District, can be reached at 631438-1099. The next generation of voters should understand that politicians represent and work for them, and that they have a right and a responsibility to decide for themselves who is the best person for the job. Please pass this information to any teenager and young adult that you know.

OPINION

Giving Trump ‘credit’ for cleaning up EPA mess

T

he president of the United States is taking full credit for the relief those crazy leftist environmental groups are feeling in response to the resignation of the latest misunderstood and much maligned member of his cabinet, Scott Pruitt. You see, President Donald Trump knew that Pruitt would do his bidding, gutting unnecessary government regulations designed to protect the water, air and food that Americans and, indeed, others on the planet need on basis. By Daniel Dunaief a daily He knew Pruitt would do everything he asked, and more. It’s like the old Stalin philosophy. You remember that ruthless Soviet Union dictator,

D. None of the above

right? He never wanted any of his tank commanders to be too powerful because he didn’t want their leader taking over. So, he chose Pruitt knowing that he’d do what Trump wanted and then would become so enmeshed in the world he tried to help — lobbyists, coal interests, insecticide manufacturers — that he would eventually cause harm to himself and his political aspirations. Trump is, rightfully, taking full credit for the resignation of a man he supported when it was expedient to do so and that he needed to cut loose when the combination of foibles and follies entered the public realm. Sure, some nasty journalists may have quoted unnamed sources who shared questionable details about Pruitt’s spending habits, his requests for football tickets, his security detail and his desire to get his wife a job. Ultimately, it was Trump who made the call, putting the thorn in the side of the environmental groups

and then pulling it out ever so quickly and gracefully. Well, maybe it wasn’t all that quick. Pruitt lasted far longer in Washington than even members of the “Trump Party” — that’s the new name of the group formerly known as the Republican Party — might have wanted. But, hey, the more people who found Pruitt’s actions and decisions questionable, the greater the relief when he was finally removed from office. OK, so technically the guy resigned, which means he walked out of the seat of power and into an enormous gas-guzzling sport utility vehicle. But, seriously, does anyone believe Pruitt thought he blew it on his own? No, no, people, wake up. News that the environmental groups all thought was good because they imagined that the EPA might return to its mandate of protecting the environment and the people, animals and trees living here came courtesy of His Truly: President Trump.

Yes, of course, you can thank him for taking nuclear weapons out of the hands of the North Koreans, and you can express your appreciation for the incredibly kind way he pulled back from a zero-tolerance policy he established because of laws the Democrats won’t fix, but don’t forget to give credit where credit is due. You see, if the president had never tapped Pruitt, who built his career attacking the henhouse that was the EPA from his home in Oklahoma, the greenie groups would never be able to celebrate his removal. No, it’s a total credit to Trump that the reality TV show that was the Pruitt era at the EPA has been canceled. So, take your time, think of the right words and make sure to thank the man in charge of the world for choosing the right man at the right time and then letting that man walk off into a sunset enhanced by all the pollution-generated particulates he helped put there.

Moe Berg: ‘I’d rather be a ballplayer than a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court’

is life makes for a fascinating story even if the current spy movie is mediocre. “The Catcher Was a Spy,” tells of Morris “Moe” Berg, baseball player, and his remarkable intelligence and exploits, especially during World War II. Born in Harlem, not far from the Polo Grounds, home of the New York Giants, Berg began playing baseball at age 7. He was to be called “the brainiest guy in baseball,” and Casey Stengel, a baseball player and manager who was something of an eccentric himself, referred to him as “the strangest man ever to play baseball.” By Leah S. Dunaief Berg’s story, captured in Nicholas Dawidoff’s 1994 book of similar title, is also the story of the times in America in which he lived. Born in 1902, he begged to go to school at age 3 1/2. The third and

youngest child of a pharmacist and a homemaker, Berg graduated from high school at 16, then Princeton magna cum laude in 1923, as an outstanding scholar-athlete playing baseball all along the way. He also grew up as an outsider, marginalized there because of modest finances and as a Jew at a time of deep bigotry. He majored in modern languages and spoke some half-a-dozen fluently, including eventually Japanese. Upon graduation, Berg was signed to a contract by the Brooklyn Robins, soon to become the Brooklyn Dodgers and he seemed to be just so-so at bat but a good clutch hitter with a strong and accurate arm in the infield. After that first season, Berg traveled to Paris, where he enrolled at the Sorbonne and read several newspapers each day. By January 1924, Berg was not thinking of going back to spring training to develop himself as a hitter but rather found the idea of travel irresistible and went on to tour Switzerland and Italy. When he finally did return to the United States, he was optioned off to the Minneapolis Millers of the American Association minor league. He was to play for four

American League teams throughout his baseball career, primarily as a catcher, ending with the Boston Red Sox as player and then coach in 1941. “Good field, no hit,” was how Dodgers scout Mike González, characterized him. Berg distinguished himself for his putouts stealing percentage, double plays by a catcher and assists by a catcher. However, throughout his baseball life, which he so clearly loved, he was a true Renaissance man. In between seasons, and sometimes missing the first couple of months of the new season, he studied law at Columbia University, passing the bar in 1929 and finally earning his Bachelor of Laws degree in 1930. Interestingly, he was sent with Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and a handful of other all-stars to play exhibition games with the Japanese in 1934 — Berg’s second trip there. Although certainly not of their star caliber, he spoke the language and was probably included on the squad for that reason. While in Tokyo, he donned a kimono and pretended to bring flowers to the American ambassador’s daughter, who was a patient in the Tokyo hospital. He went up to the roof instead, and from the top of one of the

tallest buildings he used his 16-mm Bell & Howell camera that he had concealed in the folds of his garb to film the city and harbor. He never did visit the daughter but he did provide American intelligence with rare and invaluable footage later on. He supposedly did this in anticipation of the war that he was sure, from his various readings and Far East travel, was coming. He went on to join the Office of Strategic Services, later the CIA; was parachuted into occupied Yugoslavia evaluating which resistance groups should get U.S. support — he chose Tito’s group; and became involved in the frenzied effort to determine if the German scientist Werner Heisenberg was close to developing the atomic bomb with orders to assassinate him if so — Berg decided not. Otherwise, he was of immense value to the U.S. as he moved throughout Europe in his dangerous and exciting life. The former ballplayer turned down the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor to the war effort, during his lifetime but the medal was awarded posthumously. In American history he is a mysterious footnote.

According to the American Heart Association, stroke remains a leading cause of death in the United States. While important advancements have resulted in stroke mortality declining from the third most common killer to the fourth, there are important regional, racial, and gender disparities that exist. In many communities, stroke is the leading cause of death, especially among men. Most commonly, there are no warning signs leading up to a stroke; once symptoms arise, the length of time for treatment to commence is the most important indicator of survival. Therefore, public education can lead to a further reduction in mortality. Aortic aneurysms are another less common, but equally deadly, medical condition that disproportionally affect men. An aneurysm occurs when the main blood vessel supplying organs and limbs become abnormally large. As it grows it can rupture, and this almost always results in death.

Complimentary

A stroke and an aortic aneurysm have one thing in common; they are both silent killers. Are you at risk?

MEN’S HEALTH EVENT

What is an aortic aneurysm? A. The aorta is the main blood vessel in your body. It runs from the heart to the legs, and along the way it provides blood to all the major organs. When the diameter of the aorta grows to be 1.5 times its normal size, we consider this abnormal.

STROKE & AORTIC ANEURYSM Q&A Dinner

Why is growth of the diameter of a blood vessel a problem, and how is it treated? A. Like a balloon inflating, as the diameter of a blood vessel grows, it weakens. This weakening continues until the blood vessel wall reaches a critical wall tension, and it ruptures. A rupture means the blood in your arteries will drain into the abdominal cavity. Unfortunately, most patients will not survive long enough to reach a hospital, which is why screening at-risk patients is the best way to decrease mortality. The two strongest risk factors are a history of smoking, or a family history of aneurysms. Today, most aneurysms are treated with minimally invasive surgery. Two small punctures are done in the groin; stents are then used to seal the aneurysm and eliminate the risk of rupture. Most patients are discharged from the hospital the next day. Sometimes when your doctor finds an aneurysm that is on the smaller size, it can be monitored with a yearly sonogram to ensure it doesn’t grow to a size that would put you at risk of rupture.

What exactly is stroke? A. When a portion of the brain loses its blood supply and therefore lacks oxygen, it’s considered a stroke. This normally happens because a plaque or clot, known as an embolism, will travel to the brain and disrupt blood flow. The two most common locations where these emboli originate are the carotid arteries in your neck, and the heart.

Who is most at risk for a stroke? And how does it present? A. The most common risks factors are patients with a history of smoking, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, and patients with arterial fibrillation. Presentations are variable and may include facial asymmetry, vision changes, speech difficulty, and weakness on either the right or left side of the body.

How will my doctor treat me to prevent a stroke? How is a stroke treated?

157876

A. Your doctor can help with lifestyle modifications, including weight loss and improved control of blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol. Treatments may include the administration of very powerful clot busters. However, these medications can only be given very soon after the onset of symptoms which is why seeking immediate medical treatment is so important.
