Exciting News The Winners are Coming!

Thanksgiving Eve remains one of the busiest and deadliest nights of the year for accidents from drunk driving. The holiday sees increases in both drunk driving accidents and fatalities. To combat the issue this Thanksgiving, New York State Sen. Jim Gaughran (D-Northport), Nassau County Executive Laura Curran (D) and Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas joined Uber to announce a new initiative, Long Island Safe Ride, to combat drunk driving during Thanksgiving week. Long Island Safe Ride is a multipronged approach that will combine discounts for rides home with increased law enforcement efforts to deter drinking and driving. “Long Island Safe Ride is a multifaceted, private-public partnership to remind everyone that drinking and driving have no place on our roadways,” Gaughran said. “This initiative, with discounts on Uber rides and increased law enforcement efforts under the leadership of County Executive Laura Curran and District Attorney Madeline Singas will help ensure our roadways are safe this holiday week.” Under Long Island Safe Ride, Uber will be offering a $10 discount on rides home for Thanksgiving Eve to prevent driving under the

Town Retains Law Firm for Opioid Crisis Recovery Suit At its Nov. 19 meeting, the Huntington Town Board moved to take legal action against opioid manufacturers, distributors and sellers to recover the Town’s costs of fighting the opioid epidemic, and conducted other town business. The Town Board approved the retention of Tate Grossman Kelly & Iaccarino, LLP (TGKI Law) to represent the legal interests of the town and its special districts. The firm has decades of collective experience with complex mass tort and multidistrict litigation representing dozens of municipalities seeking reimbursement for monies spent addressing the opioid crisis. It will commence an action against the manufacturers,

distributors and sellers of opioids, and all other responsible parties, to recover all damages and costs incurred and to be incurred by the Town and its special districts in connection with the opioid crisis. Supervisor Chad Lupinacci (R) and Councilman Eugene Cook (I) co-sponsored the resolution hiring the self-described Opioid Crisis Recovery Law Firm. “Given the specialized nature of this litigation, hiring TGKI Law will benefit the Town and our residents, not only from their expertise in this area, having represented other municipalities fighting the opioid

crisis, including those on Long Island,” said Lupinacci, “but in sharing the costs for their expert consultants with those other municipalities, reducing the litigation costs for our residents, to ensure those who helped create this public health and safety crisis are made responsible for the costs of fighting it.” The Town’s case will be part of all federal cases nationwide. “It is extremely important that the Town of Huntington retain Tate Grossman Kelly & Iaccarino, LLP to handle this complex litigation to recover the financial costs of the opioid crisis, to the Huntington community

against the manufacturers, distributors, and sellers of these opioid medications. Unfortunately, this lawsuit will not recover the harm and heartbreak this crisis has brought to the victims and their families who suffer or lost their life to opioids,” stated Cook. “This is a necessary first step to hold the pharmaceutical companies responsible for the monies spent on health care, substance abuse programs, public education, Narcan training and supplies and the criminal justice costs associated with the misuse of these prescription drugs.” Compiled by Donna Deedy

Town Seeks Public Support for Ambulance Squad The Town Board has scheduled a referendum to amend the Huntington Community First Aid Squad Inc. Service Award Program for Dec. 20. The proposed rule change increases the monthly service award from $20 to $30 to incentivize volunteer ambulance workers. Supervisor Chad Lupinacci (R) co-sponsored the resolution scheduling the referendum with Councilwoman Joan Cergol (D). .“Eligible voters in the Huntington Community Ambulance District will have a choice on Dec. 20 to increase the monthly service award for the first responders who make the ongoing personal sacrifice to keep our community safe while motivating others to volunteer to help our community,” said Lupinacci. The Ambulance Squad provides emergency medical services and advanced life support ambulances to residents within the Town of Huntington. Over 250 volunteer members responded to 6,000 calls during 2015, according to their website. So far in 2019, the squad has responded to more than 5,000 calls. Voters residing within the Huntington Community Ambulance District who would like to vote in the referendum but are not currently registered to vote with the Suffolk County Board of Elections may register on Thursday, Dec. 5, between noon and 8 p.m. at Huntington Town Hall, Room 114, 100 Main St. in Huntington. “I am pleased to co-sponsor, with Supervisor Lupinacci, the referendum requested by Huntington Community First Aid Squad in connection with their monthly service award benefit program (LOSAP),” said Cergol. “I am so grateful for their volunteerism, competence and personal sacrifice. This is the least we can do to say thank you for a job well done, 365 days a year.” Voters unable to vote in person on Dec. 20

may vote by absentee ballot. An application for an absentee ballot must be received by the town clerk at least seven days before the election if the ballot is to be mailed by the voter, or the day before the election, if the ballot is to be delivered personally by the voter or their

agent. The Town Clerk’s office is located in Room 102 of Town Hall, 100 Main Street, Huntington, NY 11743, reachable by phone at 631-351-3216. The Town Board has scheduled an additional Town Board meeting for Tuesday, Dec. 3 at

2:00 p.m., at which additional resolutions related to the referendum will be considered. The vote will be held on Friday, Dec. 20 from noon to 9 p.m. at Huntington Town Hall, Room 114, 100 Main St. in Huntington. Compiled by Donna Deedy

State/County

Lawmakers Promote Small Businesses with New Initiatives On Nov. 25 New York State Assemblyman Steve Stern (D-Dix Hills) and Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D) unveiled a series of state legislative proposals intended to help small businesses on Long Island. “Small businesses are the lifeblood of our local economy,” Stern said. “They employ half of New York’s private sector workforce and generate nearly $190 billion in payroll receipts, according to the Small Business Administration. Given these statistics, it is imperative that New York State move forward with a business-friendly agenda that supports local economies and fosters our suburban neighborhood quality of life.” The announcement was held at Bon Bons Chocolatier, a local family-owned business located in the heart of downtown Huntington for 40 years. The announcement came just prior to Small Business Saturday, Nov. 30, which encourages consumers to shop locally at the start of the holiday shopping season. In addition to the owners of Bon Bons, the officials were joined by a host of local chambers of commerce and business advocacy organizations including representatives from the Long Island Association, Long Island Business Council, Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Suffolk County Alliance of Chambers of Commerce, Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce and Melville Chamber of Commerce. They all applauded the initiatives and welcomed the extra exposure and promotion for small local businesses as the holiday shopping season kicks off. “Small businesses are vital to our downtown communities. Not only are they the backbone of our local economy, they are what makes Long Island such a vibrant place to live, work and raise a family,” said Bellone. “The new measures Assemblyman Stern has laid out will help strengthen our brick and mortar shops and ensure they have the tools and resources they need to thrive.” The business-friendly agenda, which will be up for consideration when the New York State Legislature re-convenes in January, includes the following innovative legislative proposals: • SMALL BUSINESS INCOME TAX EXEMPTION EXPANSION: increases the corporate tax threshold by $100,000 for businesses and farms that employ at least one person and lowers the rate from 6.5 to 4 percent. Coupled with other incentives, these changes are estimated to save small businesses $300,000,000 statewide (A.6309). • NEW YORK STATE INNOVATION VOUCHER PROGRAM: provides direct funding to eligible small businesses with dollarfor-dollar matching funds to acquire expertise

from our outstanding local colleges and universities, government laboratories and public research institutes and facilitate innovation and job creation in New York State (A.45). • REDUCING COMMUTING COSTS AND BUSINESS EXPENSES THROUGH TAX INCENTIVES: designed to enable workers to offset commuting costs (by as much as $265 per month) and save employers through reduction of payroll tax liability; this plan may also reduce traffic congestion and pollution with mass transit incentives. (A.7264). • SMALL BUSINESS TAX-DEFERRED SAVINGS ACCOUNT PROGRAM: allows small businesses with 50 or fewer employees to deposit profits into a tax-deferred savings account as an incentive for both job creation and economic development in New York State (A.7693). • FUTURE OF WORK COMMISSION: to study and research the impact of technology

on workers, employers and the economy of the state of New York and develop a plan to keep the state’s economy competitive, durable, equitable and sustainable while protecting and strengthening middle-class jobs for a new generation of New Yorkers (A.8446). The proposals, officials said, all represent “outside the box” approaches to help retain our existing businesses and attract new ones through a combination of tax incentives, collaborations with colleges, universities and research institutions and proactive anticipation of new technological advancements. “Small businesses are the backbone of Long Island’s economy and thus I commend Assemblyman Stern’s plan to lower taxes and reduce costs that would help these companies grow and succeed,” said Kevin Law, president and CEO of the Long Island Association. The Suffolk County Alliance of

Chambers of Commerce stated that brick and mortar businesses, offices, manufacturing and service contractors are at a disadvantage when the economy turns. The proposed legislation, they said, allows small businesses the opportunity to save “tax free” in good times and establish that rainy day account. “As policy makers, we have an obligation to listen to the concerns of our local business community and work together to create a business-friendly environment to keep our homegrown workforce on Long Island both now and for generations to come,” Stern said. “I am proud to support these innovative measures, which are key to sustaining and growing our local economy, and I urge my colleagues in the State Legislature to do the same.” Compiled by Donna Deedy

Throughout the workshop, students learned what a storm drain system is and why it is important. They also discovered how various kinds

of pollution make their way into the bay and ocean and how it affects local marine life.

Family Feasts Without Thank You Voters the Feuds

The pending impeachment proceedings of the 45th president of the United States means dinner table conversations this holiday season could get extra heated and dicey. So, it may be in everyone’s best interest to avoid breaching the topic, which risks exposing the passionate political leanings of loved ones. So, what’s a family to do? As the saying goes, you can’t pick your relatives. But you certainly can choose and encourage activities that bring people together rather than widen the divide. As you and your loved ones gather, equip yourself with a solid plan that keeps the peace. Keep in mind, talking about the weather, once a light, safeharbor topic, could backfire. Discussing California wildfires, for example, could spark a fruitless debate over the scientific theories behind climate change. Knowing this tendency, if you see news footage of the flooding in St. Mark’s Square in Venice, Italy, you might want to quickly change the channel. The first step in any successful endeavor is to set a realistic goal: Coming away from the weekend festivities without anyone suffering black eyes or bruised egos. The best option may in fact be: Eat in silence like monks. Other options, though, do exist. One idea is to play a game. Try coming up with a new name for the country, one that drops the word “United” in the United States of America. To keep it democratic, go around the table allowing each person to suggest their own clever alternative. Before or after dinner, you can also play the fast-paced word game Bananagrams, only conduct politics-themed rounds. The entertaining activity allows for self-expression and could likely become a fair-minded approach to spending quality time together while eliminating tensions in the air. If it doesn’t? Hold a regulation wrestling match on the living room floor and keep score. Takedowns, reversals, near falls and escapes all count. If tensions rise? Flip the bird. As in turkey. (Thanksgiving is the one day of the year that you can get away with this one.) Music soothes the savage beast. So, stream it in. Or better yet, make your own. Form a drum circle using common household objects as percussion instruments. The ancient practice of striking rhythm together is known to alleviate isolation and alienation. But be sure to hide the good china from the tribe. Building crafts can also be a fun and rewarding activity for family members. Martha Stewart built a dynasty, once she acknowledged this fundamental fact. Try building sock gnomes together. The blind, deaf and mute miniature humanoids can actually become an unexpected and perhaps even necessary source of inspiration for the crowd. Instead of discussing politics, you might also try identifying the moral virtues of each of the world’s many different major religions. On second thought, don’t do this. You can also give thanks with everyone recounting their blessings out loud in turn. It may in fact be the wisest strategy and there’s likely plenty of material to go around. Happy Thanksgiving!

I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to the voters of the Town of Huntington for electing me our next town clerk. I would also like to thank our current town clerk, Jo-Ann Raia, for her 38 years of dedicated service to the residents of Huntington. This is a bittersweet moment for me, as it has been the honor of a life-

time to serve as one of your voices in the New York State Assembly for the past 17 years. Thanks to your support, I am privileged to be continuing my record of public service to the residents of Huntington in this new position. I would also like to thank my opponent, Mr. Simon Saks, who ran a spirited campaign and is a fine person

who cares deeply about our community. Now that the election has concluded, I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting to work with my colleagues in Town Hall to help keep Huntington a great place to live, work and raise a family. Andrew Raia N.Y. State Assemblyman

Trump Is No Slump Rebuttal A [Nov. 21] letter appearing in this newspaper [“Trump Is No Slump”] paints a picture of a benevolent Donald Trump showering benefits on a grateful nation. This picture is preposterous. The writers laughably claim Trump “has worked so hard for the American citizenry.” To see how hard take a look at www.Trumpgolfcount.com. When he’s not on the links he seems to spend most of his time watching Fox News or tweeting about enemies real or imagined. The claim that we now have the lowest unemployment on record is false. The claim Trump has strengthened the military is true only if you think pardoning convicted war criminals equals a strong military. Trump’s intervention has enraged the top military leaders of our country by undermining the chain of command and good order and discipline. Rear Adm. Collin Green, the commander of the Navy SEALs, has threatened to resign because of Trump’s continued interference. [Richard Spencer, secretary of the Navy, was fired on Sunday by Secretary of Defense Mark Esper because of his handling of the SEAL issue.] Does stabbing our Kurdish allies in the back, who did most of the fighting and dying in combat against ISIS, strengthen our military? Our troops who fought alongside them don’t think so. They were mortified and ashamed. What did the spectacle of ignominiously departing American troops being pelted with rotten vegetables by angry Kurds do for our military prestige and deterrence? If you think building a wall “protect[s]

our sovereignty as a nation,” you should check the history of walls starting with the Great Wall of China. Somehow Genghis Kahn figured out a way through it. It won’t take Genghis Khan to defeat the Great Wall of Trump. Smugglers have already figured out how to saw right through it using a tool widely available at retail outlets for under $100. The claim that Trump’s made us energy independent is equally spurious. The fracking revolution began long before Trump took office. This claim also ignores the larger question of what kind of energy independence we’re after. If we used nothing but coal we’d be “energy independent.” No problem if we don’t mind coal ash, acid rain, arsenic, black lung disease, cancer and asthma, to say nothing of global warming. Meanwhile we are losing the race for the energy future. Maybe the most ludicrous claim of all is that Trump is protecting people with private health insurance. We all remember the fiasco of the AHCA, Trump’s wretched replacement for the Affordable Care Act. If by “protecting” you mean replacing real health insurance with high-deductible, limited coverage junk plans he’s doing a great job. There’s no mention of the other side of the ledger. The Trump Administration is possibly the most corrupt in U.S. history. His former national security adviser, campaign manager, personal lawyer and political adviser have all been convicted of federal crimes. A parade of Trump appointed cabinet officials have been forced to resign in disgrace for self-dealing. I say nothing about

Time to Lower Drug Prices I am an older American, and I want my members of Congress to address skyrocketing prescription drug prices. There

are bipartisan proposals in Congress to fix this — so this is the moment to finally enact

the dealings of his children and son-in-law. As if not to be outdone, Trump himself brazenly attempted to arrange next year’s G7 meeting, which the United States gets to host, be held at his failing Trump Doral resort in Florida, at the height of the slack season, so that normally empty rooms would be booked at considerable profit to himself. He gave up this idea only reluctantly after it was almost universally condemned. As a final falsehood the writer claims Democrats have “passed zero legislation” since Trump became president. This year, after Democrats gained control of the House, they’ve passed a laundry list of important legislation, including legislation to reopen the government from the Trump shutdown (H.J. Res. 31), implement universal background checks for the purchase of firearms (H.R. 8), restore net neutrality after it was ended by the Trump designated head of the FCC (H.R. 1644), take meaningful action on climate change (H.R. 9), lower prescription drug prices and improve the ACA (H.R. 987), raise the pay of military personnel by 3.1 percent (H.R. 2500), raise the federal minimum wage for the first time in 10 years (H.R. 582), and improve election security against potential malefactors (H.R. 2722). If you’re wondering why most of this legislation hasn’t become law, you have no further to look than Mitch McConnell, who openly boasts of being the “grim reaper” of legislation. Mitch McConnell is not a Democrat. David Friedman St. James

Another Take on Words That Matter

L

ast year at this time, I wrote a column celebrating words. I feel compelled to share another homage this year. This may start a new annual tradition. I hope you enjoy. Words dart away, just out of reach, like a fish in the ocean, a butterfly in a meadow or a Frisbee lifted overhead by a sudden breeze. Words emanate from nearby, startling us while we lay in bed, coaxing us to search the D. None house, the closet, the garage for the of the above source of elusive BY DANIEL DUNAIEF sounds. Words give strength to our arguments, power to our convictions, and a method to share our hopes, desper-

ation, dreams, fears, needs, wants and cravings. Individually and collectively, words enable us to invite others to share experiences. Words form the backbone of a democracy always challenged by new words, concepts, people and ideas. When we hold an infant, listen to the sound from the air leaving the lungs of a whale surfacing nearby or gaze from the top of a volcano at the rising sun over the horizon, we hope the words we choose to describe what we see, feel and experience bring us back to these magic moments. Words grow into unmanageable bundles as jargon triggers a metamorphosis that confounds and clutters their meaning, turning them into a sesquipedalian mess — that is the practice of using long-winded, obscure words. Words tell tales, show emotions and reach out across time from generations long since past, urging us to pay attention and learn lessons from those who came before. We select rhyming words that sing like chirping birds.

Words make us laugh, offering a salve to suffering and transportation out of intransigence. When we can’t understand something, we name it, giving a word to the unknown that allows us to refer to something in the cosmos, in our minds or buried under our fingernails. Ancient Romans used words to construct fantastic stories about the stars, the heavens and the gods, who exhibited a wide range of emotions that seemed remarkably human. We remember the words from our favorite movies: “May the force be with you” (“Star Wars”) and “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship” (“Casablanca”). And from our favorite presidents, such as John F. Kennedy’s “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country” (1961) or Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself” (1933). We carry with us the words that mean the most from our own lives. We don’t need to check them at the airport when we are in group 9, stuff them in an overstuffed backpack when we go to school

or keep them from getting waterlogged when the evapotranspiration cycle decides to dump rain, sleet, hail or snow upon us. We remember the person so critical to our existence that he or she “ruined us for all other” men or women. The words that elevate, inspire and encourage us to do and be our best allow us to stand straighter and taller, enabling us to wear a cryptic smile that those who know us best perceive immediately. Words give us hope, help us believe in ourselves and allow us to feel connected to someone halfway across the world. We pause from uttering words during moments of silence, as we pay respect with the unspoken words in our minds. We are surrounded by paper thin walls of meaningless, angry, spiteful, hateful words. We can combat those messages with words that reflect the best of us and our country. Words fill the toolbox with the parts to build the world as we choose. As you ponder words that matter at this time of year, I’d like to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.

Lots of Tradition and No Disappointment at Our Thanksgiving Table

T

hanksgiving 2019. Always a favorite holiday for me. What could be bad about an eating holiday? Even better, it’s a chance to see my children and grandchildren, because everyone comes to grandma’s house for Thanksgiving. For this I have to give great thanks not only to my children, coming in from various parts of the country, but especially to my children-inlaw. As one of my daughters-in-law Between said not too long ago, “Thanksgivyou and me ing belongs to the BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF Dunaiefs.” What she meant by that is her family hasn’t seen her at Thanksgiving since she married into our family. She automatically

plans on coming here to Long Island for the holiday, as do my other two daughters-in-law. For that I am hugely grateful. Of course, for that monopoly I have had to give up other holidays to the other sides of the family, and I have done so cheerfully. We have worked out this arrangement amicably and made it into a rich tradition. What happens at my dining room table on Turkey Day is not just the consumption of the usual Thanksgiving fare but also in turn the sharing of experiences to be thankful for over the past year. In this way, I get to catch up on what my offspring and their offspring have been up to, and they hear what is important to each of them. Lest it should become too ritualistic and burdensome, I suggested one year that we could skip it, but they wanted to tell their stories. And I certainly wanted to listen. So how will this year be different from the others? I eagerly await the individual particulars but, from my perspective, one difference is consideration of the food. There was a time when I just

presented the turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes, greens and a salad, and that was dinner — to be followed by ample portions of pumpkin pie. I probably don’t have to tell you that those innocent days are gone forever. My first clue that the Thanksgiving universe was changing came when my young children took me aside before the holiday one year and begged me to be understanding of what they were about to confess: They didn’t care for turkey. Wow! That was a shock to me because I prided myself on cooking the perfect turkey each year — roasted to a golden brown, yet not dried out even in the white meat. After the few minutes it took me to recover, I gamely said, “All right, I will make a couple of chickens instead.” That solution was received with enthusiasm. But that was not the end of that story: I cooked the chickens to a yummy golden brown, but I also made half a small turkey for any of the traditionalists who might be dining with us, and

because I adore leftover turkey and stuffing the next day for lunch. Comes Thanksgiving Thursday, the table is set, there is a fire in the fireplace, the fare is served, and at the end of the meal the chickens are barely touched but the only part of the turkey left is the carcass. “Is there any more turkey?” someone asks. I learned. Now when they tell me that they don’t want to eat a lot of animal protein nor dairy because of lactose intolerance — an inherited gene from my dad — nor carbs, and that I should load up with veggies and salad and certainly barely any pie because they wish to eschew lots of sugary sweets in favor of fruit, I readily agree. There will be a cornucopia of spinach and Brussels sprouts, bok choy, broccoli, cauliflower and bottomless salad and fruit bowls. Those veggies can be delicious steamed or roasted with some nuts and spices. And … there will also be mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, turkey, stuffing and — need I say it? — ample amounts of pumpkin and apple pies. We shall see what is left over this time. Happy Thanksgiving!
