Maci and Carmela are two pit bull terriers available for adoption at Huntington’s Animal Shelter.

Pit bull adoptions free Huntington Town officials are hoping residents can find space in their hearts and homes for a new four-legged member. Town board members voted unanimously to waive the $80 adoption fee for all pit bulls and pit bull mixes at the Huntington Animal Shelter in recognition of October being Pit Bull Awareness month, from Oct. 1 to 31. The resolution, sponsored by Councilman Eugene Cook (R), states the measure is aimed at reducing overcrowding at the shelter. “The implementation of the animal adoption fee waiver will allow families to adopt pit bulls and pit bull mixes that are in desperate need of a home this time of year,” the resolution reads in part.

In addition to waiving the adoption fee, the town board approved an agreement with North Shore Veterinary Hospital in Northport to conduct a spaying and neutering clinic for pit bulls and pit bull mixes throughout October. The town’s animal shelter is located at 106 Deposit Road in East Northport. It is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and weekends from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Residents who may be interested in adopting a pit bull, or any dog, can visit the town’s website at www.huntingtonny.gov, click on services, then animals for a searchable online directory. — SArA-MegAn WAlSH

TOWN New foghorn proposal has boaters sounding off By Sara-Megan WalSh sara@tbrnewspapers.com A proposed plan to change the foghorn at Huntington Lighthouse is already raising alarm among North Shore boaters. The U.S. Coast Guard is awaiting final approval to switch out the lighthouse’s foghorn from the current automated system to a new boater-operated model. Shifting the responsibility for operation of this essential safety device to the watercraft owners has raised objections from both residents and Huntington Town officials. “This is not something that should be installed here at all due to the nature of the boating community,” said Pamela Setchell, president of the Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society. “The Town of Huntington encompasses five harbors and 5,000 boaters. A lot of those 5,000 boaters are inexperienced.” The lighthouse’s foghorn is currently activated by a sensor, according to Mark Williams, officer in charge of the Aid and Navigation Team for the Long Island Sound. Williams said the sensor sends out a signal that measures for half-mile distance, if fog or other weather conditions cause visibility drops below a half-mile the foghorn will activate and sound until it clears. The Coast Guards’s plan is to switch this sensor-activated system out to a new Marine Radio Activated Sound System, known

The huntington lighthouse is one of 11 overlooking the long Island Sound in which the U.S. Coast guard is looking to replace and update the foghorn system. as MRASS for short, in 11 lighthouses overseeing the Sound is an attempt to save time and money on maintenance. In addition to Huntington, other locations on the list include Montauk Point and Orient Point. “The equipment out there is old, antiquated and almost impossible to find replacement

parts for now,” Williams said. “We are going with a new system that the U.S. Coast Guard has tested and approved.” The MRASS system requires a lighthouse’s foghorn to be activated by boaters with a Marine Very High Frequency Radio, commonly referred to as a VHF radio, by turning

to the 83A frequency and touching the key, which activates the radio fives times, equally spaced apart. Once this signal is received, Wiliams said the lighthouse’s foghorn will sound for the next 30 minutes. Both Williams and Setchell agree that Huntington Lighthouse is distinctive and unique compared to the many other lighthouses where the new foghorn is proposed, given its close proximity to residential communities and services mostly recreational boaters. Setchell said as an experienced boater that she fears the new foghorn could be problematic as watercraft owners are not required to have a VHF radio onboard under New York state law — and some recreational boaters don’t. Also, her concern is it places the burden of raising alarm on an individual already in distress. “When you are lost in the fog in a boat, it’s frightening because you have no idea where you are,” she said. “To sit there and think an inexperienced boater will have the wherewithal and calm to grab their VHF radio, remember to go to 83A, and key the mike five times is ridiculous.” Williams admitted there is no requirement for boaters to own a VHF radio, but it is highly encouraged. “There might be small boaters who don’t

The Northport-East Northport Tigers’ challenges this football season have given them a whole new perspective on why there’s no place like home. On Saturday, Oct. 14, Northport-East Northport’s varsity football team will celebrate homecoming by stepping onto their own field for the first time this season after a recent announcement that the district has completed its thorough and long-proposed bleacher repairs. The process of replacing the football field’s deteriorated wooden bleachers with new metal bleachers officially began in late August and ended Monday, Oct. 9. This was a period of frustration and uncertainty for many parents and players within the district as it forced the Northport Tigers to go to other fields for the first two home games of the 2017 season. The team’s first home game in September was moved to Elwood-John H. Glenn High School. Their Oct. 1 game was relocated to Half Hollow Hills High School East’s field. The new structures passed inspection with Texas-based LandTech Inc. at the helm of construction. Total cost for the project was more than $1 million, which came from the district’s general fund as well as state aid, according to school officials. “We’re going to be back on course for homecoming Saturday,” Northport Superintendent Robert Banzer said. A former football player himself, Banzer claimed the stadium had the same wooden bleachers when he was there in the early 1980s. The upgraded bleachers are far less dangerous and were built in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. “I’m excited to have everybody see the work but, most importantly, to be at home,” he said. “It’s always a very fun time.” Banzer and the school board initially approved the bleacher repairs in the 2015-16 budget, along with a variety of infrastructure projects throughout the district. But the construction couldn’t move forward on it right away as it faced a lengthy state approvals process. The first opportunity the school district could seize to begin repairs was in late spring of this year prior to graduation ceremonies. Banzer said he didn’t want to risk the job not being done in time for a large event. By the time the district hired LandTech to build the bleachers, the construction company was booked for most of the summer and couldn’t begin the project until a couple weeks into August. School officials projected the bleachers would be finished by the team’s second home game, but as that proved to be overambitious, the community grew increasingly anxious that the job wouldn’t be done in time for homecoming. Some residents made sure their voices were heard. “It’s a disgraceful, embarrassing, hurtful situation that in my opinion could’ve been avoided,” Mike Gozelski, president of the Northport Football Booster Club, said during the Sept. 28 board of education meeting. “We’re halfway through the season and the athletes, marching band, cheerleaders and the community have yet to set foot on our home field. It’s heartbreaking for most of us. Part of our anger comes from the fact that work on the bleachers didn’t start until August with football season starting in September. It’s negligent.” Gozelski, a former Tiger, said for many seniors on the team, including his son, this season is the last chance they had to show their school pride in the stadium. “These kids practice for two hours a day and work hard

Huntington nurses lend a hand to Harvey victims By Sara-Megan WalSh sara@tbrnewspapers.com Huntington nurses went to work and rolled up their sleeves to help out the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Three Huntington Hospital nurses stepped forward to answer a call for aid from MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. The Texas hospital had put out a nationwide request for volunteer nurses to provide relief for their own staff members impacted by the storm. “I got into nursing because I wanted to help people,” Meghan Billia, an oncology nurse at Huntington Hospital, said. “When you hear there’s a greater scale on which you can help people, it feels like something you should do.” Billia, of Huntington, stepped up for the first time as she knew firsthand the havoc that storm and flooding could wreak on one’s personal life. She had lived on the South Shore of Long Island when Hurricane Sandy hit Oct. 22, 2012. ER nurse Demetrios Papadopoulos, of Bellmore, traveled to Houston from Sept. 9 to 16 with Billia. “When I got down there, the first thing I asked was if I could work every day,” he said. “Houston is a lovely city, but I’ll go down another time to see it.” Papadopoulos said he learned that roughly 70 percent of the employees of MD Anderson had been affected in some way by the storm. To further add to its problem, the Houston hospital had been forced to cancel approximately 300 surgeries scheduled the week that Harvey hit. “They were adding on 100 cases a week in order to catch back up,” Papadopoulos said. “In addition to being understaffed, they were overbooked.” The volunteers were given a one-day crash course on MD Anderson’s computer systems then immediately scheduled to work up to 12-hour shifts. By taking over Houston nurses’ schedules, Huntington Hospital’s staff was

providing much-needed time for them to file insurance claims on flooded homes, begin ripping out damaged floors and sheetrock, and grieve the death of loved ones. “We were covering nurses who were affected by the hurricane personally,” Billia said. “It’s not often you get to go somewhere and help other nurses. You usually go to help the patient. This was helping the staff and giving back to fellow nurses.” While rolling up their sleeves and putting in long hours at the hospital, the volunteers also said it turned out to be an unexpected learning experience. “There are parts of MD Anderson that are highly specialized,” Papadopoulos said. “I got to see what they have and what they are capable of. They had a few ideas that I hope to bring back here. MD Anderson is nationally ranked as the No. 1 hospital for adult cancer treatment by U.S. News & World Report. Billia said working in oncology she learned about a different style of IV pump and equipment that allows chemotherapy to be administered differently to cancer patients. She brought a sample product back to Huntington Hospital for staff members to review and discuss. Both first-time volunteers said they were surprised, and nearly overwhelmed, by the appreciation and gratitude of MD Anderson’s staff. Papadopoulos said Houston staff members attempted to take him out to dinner on his last night in the city, while Billia was given a few small presents for her hard work including a T-shirt. A third nurse who volunteered, Shaneel Blanchard, could not be reached for comment. Dr. Gerard Brogan Jr., the executive director of Huntington Hospital, said he fully supported the actions of his employees taking time to volunteer in Texas. “I’m very proud of our dedicated staff who went down to Houston to help the people affected by Hurricane Harvey,” Brogan said in a statement. “As a hospital that turned into a

community resource during Hurricane Sandy with caregivers who constantly go above and beyond for their patients, it’s not surprising that our staff would feel compelled to help people whenever they can.”

Billia and Papadopoulos said they have both stayed in touch with those they met while volunteering. Papadopoulos hopes to make a trip down once the city has recovered, while Billia is keeping in touch via text messages.

Viva Italia in Huntington Photos by Sara-Megan Walsh

Neither rain nor political pressure was going to stop proud Italian-Americans from marching along Huntington’s Main Street in honor of Christopher Columbus. Huntington Town’s annual Columbus Day Parade was held Oct. 8 as spectators gathered in groups under storefront awnings, waving small red, white and green flags and some wearing “Save Columbus Day” T-shirts. Paradegoers were treated to a series of floats, marching bands and vintage cars. Cries of “Viva Italia” filled the air. This year’s

grand marshals featured Robert Fonti, legislative liaison for Suffolk County and a longtime parade committee member; and Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti, of Bethpage, of “America’s Got Talent” fame. Honored guests were Lou Kron, owner of Madison Steak House in Hauppauge, for his generous donations to the Sons of Italy over many years; and Lou Gallo, locally known for dressing up as Christopher Columbus and a strong supporter of Italian-American heritage, according to parade chairman Keith Wilson.

at Short Beach in Smithtown for last three years. Carrying cameras around their necks, they photographed and documented their classmates findings. “We see a lot of changes from year to year, from different types of animals and critters we get to see, or wildlife and plants,” Thaker said. “It’s really interesting to see how it changes over time and see what stays consistent over time as well. It’s also exciting to see our peers really get into it.” Maria Zeitlin, a science research and college chemistry teacher at Smithtown High School East, divided students into four groups to test water oxygenation levels, document aquatic life forms, measure air temperature and wind speed, and compile an extensive physical description of wildlife and plants in the area. The collected data will be brought back to the classroom and compared against previous years. In this way, Zeitlin said the hands-on

study of Nissequogue River serves as a lesson in live data collection. Students must learn to repeat procedures multiple times and use various scientific instruments to support their findings. “Troubleshooting data collection is vital as a scientist that they can take into any area,” she said. “Data has to be reliable. So when someone says there’s climate change, someone can’t turn around and say it’s not true.” The Smithtown East teacher highlighted that while scientific research can be conducted anywhere, there’s a second life lesson she hopes that her students and all others will take away from their studies of the Nissequogue River. “This site is their backyard; they live here,” Zeitlin said. “Instead of just coming to the beach, from this point forward they will never see the beach the same again. It’s not just a recreational site, but its teeming with life and science.”

Musical maestros

Northport High School has 23 students who have been selected for the 2017 NYSCAME All-County music festival . Out of those students, 12 have also been selected for the NYSSMA All-State festival — a record number for the district. To be selected for the NYSCAME, 11th- and 12th-grade students must score among the top

NYSSMA musicians across Suffolk County. Once selected, students then participate in three intensive rehearsal sessions, culminating with a concert Nov. 17, 7:30 p.m. at Hauppauge High School. Students selected for NYSSMA All-State compete on a statewide level. Those selected scored among the top musicians in New York. The 12 Northport All-State students will travel to Rochester from Nov. 30-Dec. 3. Along with participating

in intensive rehearsals, students from across the state will perform weekend concerts at the Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre. “We’re extremely proud of our students and how dedicated to music they are,” said Izzet Mergen, director of fine and performing arts. Students selected for the 2017 NYSCAME All-County festival include: Ashleigh Basel, alto; Lee Ann Chu, clarinet; John Cooney, trombone; Bobby Cozzette, string

Honored scholars

Four students from Cold Spring Harbor were named Commended Students and Semifinalists in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program. During the fall of their junior year, students across the nation took the PSAT and the top scores were then established. The National Merit Scholarship Program holds an academic competition each year

identifying and honoring these high school students in the U.S. through recognition and college scholarships. Less than 3 percent of the 1.6 million students who take the test will become a recipient of the Letter of Commendation. Three Cold Spring Harbor students received this honor: Matthew Beroza, Zachary Campbell and Phillip Wideska. Thomas Carey was recognized

as a Semifinalist, a recognition given to less than 1 percent of students. “We are very proud of our National Merit Scholarship winners, for this distinction recognizes the hard work and commitment of our students, the support they have received from their parents and teachers, as well as the community support for our fine schools,” Superintendent Robert Fenter said.

National academic success Elwood-John H. Glenn High School seniors Joseph Franzese and Brendan Harrigan were recently named Commended Students in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program. Each received a Letter of Commendation from the school and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation for their outstanding academics. Although they’re not continuing in the National Merit Scholarship competition, Franzese and Harrigan

placed among the top 3 percent of students across the country that took the 2016 PSAT, and have demonstrated strong potential for academic success. “We are extremely proud of our Commended Students and recognize the magnitude of this achievement,” said Principal Carisa Burzynski.

BLEACHERS Continued from page A5 12 months a year to be able to play on this field,” he said. “You have to understand how disappointing this is for them.” Banzer responded, explaining the school’s side of the situation to Gozelski, as well as about a dozen parents and football players in uniform in the room. “I know it’s disappointing,” the superintendent said. “But we also wanted to make sure we provided the best product going forward. We just want the job to be done right.” At the end of the exchange, the board said it was hopeful the bleachers would be ready to go for the district’s pep rally Oct. 13 and Oct. 14 homecoming. Gozelski said he received the good news from the school’s athletic department on

Monday morning. “Now we’re going to be out there and opening up a brand new, refurbished Tigers stadium,” Gozelski said. “The players get to play, the band gets to play, the cheerleaders get to cheer and the community gets to see a good football game … and hopefully a victory.” Gina Macchia-Gerdvil, a mother of two students on the team and a member of the Booster Club, was equally upset over the situation, believing the district should have replaced the bleachers after the football season was over. She said up until Monday’s announcement, nobody was certain if homecoming would take place at home. “I’m excited for all the kids,” MacchiaGerdvil said. “My boys are in their second year on varsity and they haven’t had a chance yet to step into their stadium and see the big crowd and all the festivities.”

have anything,” he said. “But we hope vessels of that size with little equipment are not out in the fog or restricted visibility weather.” Setchell said the residents near the lighthouse, along with the boating community, fear a user-operated system could become the “focus of pranks” by drunken or irresponsible parties. If the signal is keyed in repeatedly, the foghorn will continue to sound for a full 30 minutes from the last time it was activated — with no immediate shutoff. Huntington Town officials have raised their own concerns about whether changing the foghorn system is in the best interests of the boating community. “The town shares the Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society’s concerns about whether a boater-operated foghorn is appropriate for an area that is almost exclusively used by recreational boaters,” Supervisor Frank Petrone (D) said in statement. “We

look forward to working with the Lighthouse Preservation Society, the Greater Huntington Council of Yacht and Boating Clubs and the Coast Guard to address the issue of a new foghorn that will increase boater safety without unnecessarily intruding on the serenity of those who live along the shore.” The Town of Huntington has filed a letter with the U.S. Coast Guard outlining its concerns for consideration before the plan is approved. The same MRASS foghorn plan was proposed for the Huntington Lighthouse in 2009, according to Setchell, but was tabled due to overwhelming public objection after less than a week. The system has been widely installed across northern New England, according the Williams, with very few complaints. Any individual or organization who either supports or has concerns about the proposed foghorn replacement can write to the U.S. Coast Guard by sending an email to mark.p.williams@uscg.mil.

County

New trial program pairs inmates with shelter dogs By Kevin Redding kevin@tbrnewspapers.com In a new program at Yaphank Correctional Facility, Suffolk County inmates and homeless dogs are helping each other get a second chance. Six men in orange jumpsuits lined up on the grounds of the jail Oct. 4, each with a shelter dog at their side, and took turns walking their four-legged companions around in a large circle, demonstrating the dog’s new socialization skills along the way. With a quick command, the dogs either sat, stayed or laid down. One of the dogs, named Bain, an 11-month-old Rottweiler, even showed off how he can help someone get back on their feet — literally. The demonstration was all part of a presentation of Handcuffs to Heeling, a pilot program that teaches low-risk, nonviolent offenders to train abandoned dogs — Rottweilers, pit bulls and German Shepherds plucked from the Brookhaven Town animal shelter. The aim of the program, which started in mid-September, is to socialize the dogs well enough so they can be put up for adoption. But it’s also doing plenty of good for their trainers too. The inmates train the dogs three nights a week for two hours each session. “We’re rehabilitating humans through animals,” said Michael Gould, the president and founder of Hounds Town Charities, who pitched the idea of the dog training program

to Suffolk County Sheriff Vincent DeMarco in the spring. “When I see inmates, I see humans. When I see these big, powerful dogs, I see animals that shouldn’t be in a shelter.” Gould, a former commanding officer of the Nassau County Police K-9 unit, admitted these breeds of dogs are difficult to adopt out because they carry reputations of being dangerous. But they are caring, loving and now well-trained, thanks to the inmates, Gould added. “These are among the best dogs you can come across,” he said. With a quick snap of his fingers, the dog at Gould’s side stopped and sat at attention. “Everything is low key. There’s no crazy energy. It’s all about structure and love. Firm hand. Kind heart.” Suffolk County undersheriff Steven Kuehhas said he believes the program will reduce recidivism among the inmates, all of whom are serving a local sentence. “This program gives the inmates the opportunity to learn responsibility,” Kuehhas said. He also added the program may help the inmates’ chances of employment, in an animal shelter or as a dog handler, after they leave. He called the program a winwin situation. Jackie Bondanza, a Hounds Town representative and one of the program’s coordinators, said she’s noticed significant changes among the inmates and dogs since the program started. “It’s been a very inspiring transformation,”

she said. “When the inmates first came, they were all composed and didn’t want to be here. They’ve since really opened up and I think it’s helped build their confidence. Same with the dogs. These dogs would be sitting in cages in a shelter a majority of the day otherwise. This is incredible for them.” The inmates turned dog trainers were chosen by the sheriff’s department under the criteria of being nonviolent offenders and being physically capable of handling their canine. One of the inmates — Joseph Dima, 36, from Bohemia — said he was thinking of his own dog back home when he signed up for the program. “To help these dogs find a home and owners that will handle them well — that was a big thing for me,” Dima said, referring to the pit bull he was assigned to, Carl, as a loving mush. “He’s such a great dog. People get the wrong misconceptions about pit bulls. He just wants affection. All the dogs do.” When the dogs weren’t demonstrating their new skills, they were perched next to their trainers, being petted and rubbed. During the course of the program, the dogs live at Hounds Town Charities, which is housed in Ronkonkoma. Plans are in place to continue Handcuffs to Heeling after the expiration of the current six-week program as those behind it seek corporate sponsors and residents interested in adopting the dogs. “There’s nothing like a dog to help an inmate heal,” said Brookhaven Supervisor Ed

Tigers score postseason appearance with shutout By Jen Holden Northport’s field hockey is at it again. For the sixth time this season, the visiting Tigers secured a shutout and, this time, with a 6-0 blanking of Connetquot Oct. 10, earned a postseason berth. Senior Olivia Lewis scored the first goal five minutes in, on her way to a hat trick. She scored twice in the first half. “We did a good job possessing the ball,” Lewis said. “It was in our half almost the entire game. We moved the ball well and our off-ball movement was good. We did a good job keeping it from the other team. Junior Lily Fox added a goal and one assist, scoring off a penalty shot, and junior forward Taryn Saturno rounded out the scoring for the first half, 4-0, on a corner shot. “We had a lot of different players come in and we definitely used the width of the field.” Fox said. Saturno said her teammates worked on sharing the wealth. “I think we did a really good job like playing as a team and passing to each other and working for the ball and assists early,” Saturno said. “[The team] made sure that we each got equal opportunities to get some good goals.” The second half challenged the Tigers’ stamina as the Thunderbirds applied pressure — forcing Northport passes and allowing Connetquot to steal the ball and gain two breakaway chances. The Tigers were able to slow the game and regain control of the

Northport 6 Connetquot 0

ball, allowing the Thunderbirds just three shots on goal, all of which were blocked by sophomore goalie Hayley Hayden. The midfield also blocked Connetquot from gaining yards in the Tigers’ zone. Lewis scored again before sophomore Kate McLam rounded out the scoring, 6-0, for the 10-3 Tigers. Northport head coach, Gina Walling said she’s happy how her team has developed since the start of the season, and thinks they’re on the path toward success. “They did a good job focusing on play-

ing their game, maintaining their game and working on things they needed to work on,” she said. The Tigers walked off the field with smiles on their faces and their sights now set on a state finals appearance.

“They are starting to put it together,” Walling said. “It’s great for postseason.” Northport will visit Sachem East Oct. 12 at 4:30 p.m. before playing Garden City in a nonleague game at Veterans Park Complex, Northport, Oct. 14 3:30 p.m.

OpiniOn Editorial

Letters to the editor

LAP gives their all to running Grateful Paw

Stock photo

Taking the wrong route We’re not accepting pro-football player Cam Newton’s apology, but we’re not accepting reporter Jourdan Rodrigue’s either. With an editorial staff that houses a female sports editor and reporter, the NFL quarterback’s comments to Rodrigue, a Carolina Panthers beat writer for the Charlotte Observer, hit close to home. In a post-game interview following the Panthers’ 27-24 win over the Detroit Lions Oct. 8, Rodrigue asked Newton about his relationship with a receiver. “Devin Funchess has really seemed to embrace the physicality of his routes and getting those extra yards,” she said. “Does that give you a little bit of enjoyment to see him kind of truck sticking people out there?” [For those who may not know football terminology, routes are plays, like directional paths, and truck sticking is the process of running through tacklers.] As soon as the word “routes” came out of the reporter’s mouth, Newton sported a beaming grin. “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes,” he said in response. “It’s funny.” What’s even more disheartening is that after the comment was made, Rodrigue followed Newton to talk to him about his remarks, and he did not apologize. What is the importance of having females in a male-dominated industry? To focus on football numbers, women account for 45 percent of fans, NFL vice president of marketing Johanna Faries said at the second NFL Women’s Summit earlier this year. A league that a few years ago was completely comprised of men now has two female coaches, two female officials, three female 100 percent owners and a female chief security officer. A small number to be sure, but at least it’s an improvement from the old days. But after Newton’s comment, we fear we’re taking a step backward, or maybe the perceived progress is just that: perceived. Newton’s remarks are inappropriate, degrading and disrespectful, and it’s sad to see and hear that this mentality still exists. Newton tried to play it off like he was joking, or didn’t mean it solely about women, but his response was so specific. Contrary to his implication, you don’t need to be a man or play the sport to have extensive knowledge of it. There are female sports reporters that know more about sports than their male counterparts because many have to go above and beyond to level the playing field. Newton is viewed as a leader on the football field, but his comments off it prove the contrary. However, after some media outlets did some digging, it turns out Rodrigue should not be considered the utmost authority on social consciousness either. Several racist tweets dating back four and five years ago were found on the reporter’s Twitter account. She references her father “being super racist as we pass through Navajo land …” and replied to someone’s comment saying, “He’s the best. Racist jokes the whole drive home.” She even used a racist epithet; although she did post an apology on Twitter. If we don’t want to be disrespected, we need to work on our politics. We all need to be better.

I am writing this letter on behalf of the Huntington League for Animal Protection/Grateful Paw Cat Shelter. This organization is strictly run by a group of volunteers and supported by donations and fundraisers. These volunteers work at the shelter, taking care of many homeless, injured, sick, aging cats and many kittens. That’s not to say that there aren’t also very healthy, adoptable cats there as well. This shelter has a staff veterinarian, who cares for all of these cats, visiting once a week throughout the entire year. He is paid for by Grateful Paw not the Town of Huntington. These volunteers are on call 24/7, 365 days a year taking

emergency calls and rescuing injured cats, while feeding, cleaning and medicating those in need on a daily basis. They give of their time, effort and energies for the sake and well-being of the cats. Although I am not a resident of Huntington, I have fostered some kittens and have worked with a volunteer trapping feral cats to be neutered, rehabilitated and released back into a feral colony that was supervised by a caring adult. I have seen firsthand just how much work these volunteers have done. They are amazing people doing an amazing job. Yet, the Town of Huntington is proceeding to close the doors of this wonderful shelter by Nov. 30, leaving these “once homeless”

animals homeless again. There doesn’t seem to be a reasonable reason why this is happening. I highly suspect that the residents of Huntington do not know that this is taking place nor do they realize that there will be no place for the residents to bring unwanted, sick and homeless cats. I sincerely urge the residents of Huntington to ask questions of their town board members and find answers as to why the town board of Huntington finds it necessary to close this wonderful shelter that has been doing a great service for their community for more than 40 years.

Support Spencer for Suffolk Legislature These are times in which many of us are simply fed up with politics and disenchanted with our leaders. It seems to many of us from both sides of the aisle that our political leaders are more consumed with winning their next election than getting the work of the people done and making our lives better. That is why it is so refreshing to have a leader like William “Doc” Spencer as our Suffolk County legislator. I’ll be honest. I have never had much of an interest in local politics. As a fellow physician, I have always known Spencer to be a kind-hearted and empathetic man. This year I had the opportunity to get to know Spencer on a more political level through collaboration on several public advocacy events. I can only say that we are lucky to have a man who cares so sincerely about

his constituents. I can honestly say that the man does not have a selfserving bone in his body, and that is a rarity in a politician. As a pediatrician, I am grateful for his impressive efforts on the health care front. He raised the tobacco purchasing age to 21 in Suffolk County. He banned the sale of energy drinks and powdered caffeine packs that were sending our youth to the hospital. He sponsored Narcan expansion to police, which has saved lives. He worked on events for the safe disposal of pharmaceuticals. He instituted a pool safety awareness program for school children. He worked on the red-light program, which has decreased accidents and improved roadway safety. He has worked to protect our environment and our water quality. Spencer has also been a willing

partner and friend to grassroots efforts this year advocating for access to good, affordable health care for all. He has shown up in support at rallies and phone banks, lending a hand whenever he could. He has also tried to bring our community together against hate. He organized an event this year with faith leaders and educators with the message that as Americans and neighbors we must all stand against hate in unity. As a pediatrician and as a mother, I am proud and grateful to have a leader like Dr. William Spencer represent us. I will do whatever I can to continue to support him and I urge everyone to do the same.

Trump’s critics lack respect for our nation With respect to the “Watch your language President Trump” in your Letters to the Editor page, appearing in the Oct. 5 issue, I have the following points and questions to raise to Mr. Zappulla: Did you express equivalent concern as a bad example set for our younger people when U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (D) went on prime time television and referred to President Trump and most of his cabinet as “a bunch of scumbags?” She is, or was, looked up to by many young people of color. Did you express equivalent concern as a bad example set for our younger people when comedian Kathy Griffin displayed

a decapitated head of President Trump? She is, or was, a celebrity looked up to by younger people, and older. Did you express equivalent concern as a bad example for our younger people when Madonna, on Inauguration Day, shouted how she regretted not being able to blow up the White House? You know she is widely admired among younger people. Do you feel and express equivalent concern that millionaire, spoiled NFL football players dishonor our country, its citizens, soldiers who fought and died for you, me and, yes, the NFL millionaires who kneel during the playing of the

national anthem? Now you know. sir, how worshipped these football players are by our younger people — far beyond any president. I don’t recall any time in our history when professional athletes publicly disdained our great nation, our veterans and the office of the president of the United States. Mr. Zappulla, your political leanings are very clear. I really don’t believe you are at all concerned about the impact of President Trump’s use of foul language on our younger people. You are simply amplifying his statement to support your left leaning politics.

OpiniOn Addressing the harassment problem

W

hat people don’t say can speak volumes. Take the Harvey Weinstein allegations. Numerous women have come forward and described abhorrent behavior toward women by someone in power. That’s not a new phenomenon, but what’s new is the identity of the perpetrator and the time period involved — decades, it appears. When asked about the allegations, President Donald Trump said he was “not at all surprised to see it.” Hmm, not at By Daniel Dunaief all surprised? Didn’t the person whose every word and tweet gets splashed across headlines around the world have anything else to say, like, “If the allegations are true, it’s horrible and we should address this problem as a nation.” Or, “We as a country need to address this serious problem.”

D. None of the above

No, he didn’t. In a follow-up question, a reporter asked if Weinstein’s behavior was inappropriate, and Trump responded that the movie executive said it was. Again, not much there. I recognize this wasn’t a women’s rights forum and that he didn’t have prepared remarks or a flowing speech to cite, but he had an opportunity to address a real problem and he seemed more prepared to suggest he knew that Weinstein’s superstar public character had some tarnish. The New York public transport system has run ads for years imploring, “If you see something, say something.” That’s not always easy, especially when no one else might have been around to hear or see inappropriate comments or gestures. This isn’t about political correctness: It’s about allowing people to do their best work without feeling threatened or uncomfortable. Locker room talk, or anything else that resembles a putdown for whatever reason, creates a hostile work environment. Almost exactly a year ago, candidate Trump described several women who accused the Clintons of improper

behavior towards women as “courageous” at a press conference before a debate with Hillary Clinton. While Trump hasn’t shared any such words of support for Weinstein’s victims, others have applauded them for coming forward. If Weinstein’s alleged victims had done so initially, taking on the equivalent of a movie icon could have put their careers at risk. Gender politics are often a challenging and sore point at work. People can often dismiss inappropriate comments as being jokes or suggesting that their words weren’t what they intended. Some jobs, like Wall Street trading, or, well, locker rooms, often involve a type of bawdy humor that is part of the culture. But why should anyone have to tolerate it? With training and a heightened public awareness, the excuse “Well, that’s just the way it is” could turn into, “That’s not the way we do things around here.” Pundits are suggesting that if eight women have come forward to accuse Weinstein, there are likely many more. Then again, if he could and did engage in inappropriate conduct for

decades, you have to imagine there are other men who did it, too. Weinstein, in his own words, needs help. So, too, does the rest of society. He suggested he came from a different era. Others have taken him to task, indicating that somewhere along the line, he missed some major strides society made between whatever time period he imagined and today. Who else is living in that era and how can we help them? Maybe, in addition to training the next set of up-and-coming managers, we should make sure the top executives — most of whom are men — understand what’s OK and what crosses a real line that is not only objectionable, but is also problematic for them and their careers. We watch movies for many reasons: We want to be inspired, we want to understand other people and, sometimes, we want a perspective that helps us understand ourselves better. Maybe the inappropriate actions of a moviemaker can shed some more light on a problem that clearly isn’t unique to one person. A corollary to the transport ad, perhaps, should be, “If you hear something, say something.”

The opposite sexes need each other

I

f a man and a woman are seen together having lunch, the inevitable gossip ensues. The two of them may be colleagues or they may simply be friends. But rumors start. Does this always happen? Not always, of course, but often enough to discourage pairing off for an exchange of ideas or career advice perhaps in business. Now, with sexual harassment the news, By Leah S. Dunaief in there is added pressure for the sexes to go their separate ways lest any movement or words be misunderstood between them. What nonsense. Please be assured that I am as passionately against sexual harassment as anyone on the planet. Wherever it may be found, it should be exposed and

halted. But the pendulum, I believe, may be swinging too far in the other direction. Recently Vice President Mike Pence mentioned that he doesn’t eat alone with a woman who is not his wife. Recent polls indicate that a majority of employees of both sexes feel it is inappropriate to have a drink or dinner together and, although less so, it may also be inappropriate for lunch. Even driving together in a car can be looked at askance. This wariness, although perhaps helpful in avoiding situations of sexual harassment, is a loser for both sexes, especially in the workplace. For men, who are apparently unsure where the boundaries are for a touch on the arm or an innocent compliment on a colleague’s dress, there is the loss of diversity. Women can have different sensibilities and can offer different perspectives than men, to the benefit of both. A recent advertisement featuring a woman has just been yanked by a major company because it may be misinterpreted as racist. My guess is that no woman executive of that company

saw the ad before it went public. For women, the loss is perhaps greater. Since most of the leadership of companies and institutions is still made up of men, the mentorship and sponsorship of female employees is at least as vital, or even more so, than for male junior-level employees. But if a woman cannot enjoy a close professional working relationship with such a sponsor, she is often blocked from moving up in the ranks. I am reminded of my own business life and the people who helped me advance. Yes, there were a couple of women mentors who were willing to share their skills with me and promote my status, but there were more men along the way who selected me for advancement. One local businessman volunteered important advice to me at a critical time in the early years of the newspaper. Another energetically proposed me as a candidate for president of the New York Press Association, a position for which I will always be grateful. Another supported my intuition at a decisive juncture, I’m sure I don’t know why, but it worked out well.

Several others helped me with various financial matters. Did I meet with them alone for lunch or dinner or, heavens, for a drink? You bet I did. How else to get private time for critical conversation? Meetings in the office are routinely interrupted or overheard. Did I ever meet alone with anyone of the opposite sex in his bedroom? You can put money on the answer being “no”! There are lines one doesn’t cross, no matter what generation one belongs to, and they really are not so difficult to decipher. Are work colleagues ever sexually attracted to each other? As long as there are men and women, there can be attraction between them. But so what? That’s the way the two sexes were put forth. Presumably we adults know all about that and can conduct ourselves accordingly. Or, to return to square one, we can avoid each other completely. We women have a great deal we can offer men and vice versa. It would be so foolish to limit our contacts to only half the population. And besides, it wouldn’t nearly be as much fun.
