Huntington community rallies against intolerance By Victoria Espinoza victoria@tbrnewspapers.com The divisive nature of the 2016 presidential election is still affecting many Americans, and racist, anti-Semitic and other xenophobic actions have occurred in some communities. Local legislators, police officers, school administrators and religious leaders gathered at the Tri Community Youth Association in Huntington Nov. 23 to preach inclusivity and acceptance after several hate-driven incidents were reported.

‘We are better than this, we can disagree with dignity and without being threatened or going as far as to commit a crime.’ — william spencer Two weeks ago, police said multiple swastikas were found spray painted on walls at Northport High School, and town officials said residents have reported hearing hateful language as well. “I want to take this opportunity to come together, to speak to our anxieties, our fears, our concerns that have been spurred by acts of predominantly ignorance,” Suffolk County Legislator William “Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport) said at the event. “We now have a new generation of young people that may not have experienced the Holocaust or the civil rights movement, and this call of unity is not speaking against acts for any particular group, but for all of us. Whether it’s with minorities, in the Jewish, Muslim, Christian community; this is condemning acts of hatred for all of us.” Spencer said he has received multiple calls from friends and colleagues detailing stories of bullying and threatening acts in recent weeks. “We are better than this.

Huntington Station tavern riddled with criminal activity gives up liquor license Huntington Station’s Melissa Restaurant Sports Bar & Grill has officially run dry. After local officials fought to close the establishment, which has been plagued with numerous criminal and violent incidents, the tavern willingly decided to stop serving liquor. According to a press release, the owners of Melissa tavern, located at 1419 New York Ave., voluntarily forfeited the license to state regulators last week. The tavern owners could not be reached for comment, and it is unclear whether the establishment will remain a dry restaurant or if ownership will change hands. Since July, Huntington Town Councilman Mark Cuthbertson (D) has been urging the New York State Liquor Authority to revoke the license to curb the safety issues taking place at and around the tavern. “This is great news for the Huntington Station community and I applaud our police, civic leaders and residents who assisted the town in applying constant pressure to put an end to violence and crime at Melissa tavern,” Cuthbertson said in a statement. “For far too long, this establishment has been a detriment to the quality of life for Huntington Station and I am pleased to announce Melissa’s

last call is history.” Inspector Chris Hatton of the 2nd Precinct agreed this is a victory for safety in Huntington Station. “Absolutely this is a positive step,” Hatton said in a phone interview. “We’ve had a lot of incidents there in the past several years both inside and outside the tavern. It did draw crowds that tended to engage in criminal activities.” According to the Suffolk County Police Department, Melissa tavern has been cited with 127 incidents in a five-year span, including a shooting in the parking lot this past March and a stabbing inside the establishment in September. Cuthbertson worked with local officials and state offices to ensure the end of liquor sales at the tavern. “Our first priority is public safety,” he said, “and I am pleased that the town had the support of the New York State Liquor Authority, the Suffolk County Board of Health and the Suffolk County Police Department.” Jim McGoldrick, a Huntington Station resident, agrees that this is an improvement for the community. “We’re moving in the right direction,” he said in a phone interview. “This is the best thing to happen to Huntington Station in a few years. Children can’t be exposed to the type of violence that was taking place there. It sends a message that this won’t be tolerated.”

Grants available for first-time homebuyers By Guy SantoStefano For most, homeownership is a dream, and for many, it’s also a big challenge. For some Long Islanders, owning a home seems financially out of reach, but that’s where Community Housing Innovations can help. The cost of living continues to rise, while home and apartment rental costs make saving to buy a home nearly impossible. Lenders are now requiring larger down payments for many homebuyers — so a buyer seeking to land a modest $250,000 home on Long Island may need $25,000 cash up front, plus another $10,000 in closing costs. Saving $35,000 is not an easy task. But for those who qualify, help is available. Community Housing Innovations is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-sponsored agency that assists first-time buyers in meeting the challenges of homeownership. From homebuyer education classes to credit counseling, and down payment and closing cost assistance, the company’s staff have the ability, and most importantly, the financial resources to help buyers realize their dream. Grants earmarked for closing costs and down payments have averaged $25,000. Other programs offered through the non-

profit, in conjunction with the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, help a novice buyer arrange special savings accounts geared toward meeting down payment requirements. Andrea Haughton, the director for home ownership at Community Housing innovations, reports that since 1997, 31 homes on Long Island have been purchased through the program, which has bases in Patchogue, Hempstead and White Plains. For Ru Jurow, a graphic designer living in Farmingville, this program was critical. A single mom, Jurow has been paying nearly $2,000 a month in rent and utilities for a small home in the — Ru Jurow Sachem school district. “I wanted to stay in the same school district, as I have two teen children, both honors students,” she said. “And after 10 years in the same rental, we really needed more space and privacy for the kids.” Jurow found a charming three bedroom, two bath home one mile from her current rental, and did a search on Google for grant programs for new homebuyers, coming across Community Housing Innovations’ website. She saw she met the requirements, and applied, receiving a $25,000 grant, which she said, must be split with 51

This encourages the owner to stay in the house and thus avoid paying penalties. Eligibility guidelines and

other key information can be found on the organization’s website, www.chigrants. org, or by visiting their Patchogue offices. “All three of us are incredibly excited,” Jurow said of her family beginning its new journey. “My daughter has been planning how she will get to decorate her own room and can’t wait to have big sleepover parties with her friends in the finished basement. My son is looking forward to having a work-out room in the basement and I am a huge baker and cannot wait to get into that kitchen and cook up a storm.”

Your turn

Addiction is a family disease and, as a parent, you too must learn to cope, or you will lose yourself in the process. She has learned to no longer enable like she did in the past. She has also followed a dream. She moved away from her children to the warmth of Florida, and now has a lovely condo on a small waterway. While she still feels the pull of her children’s addictions, she has also started to feel some freedom. Freedom to feel the sunshine, enjoy a nice day out with friends and family she has near her. This was not even an option to her a year ago — just a dream. While her son was in Florida after we came up with a plan for him to seek outsideof-state rehabilitation, she met a woman who is the guardian angel for parents who send their kids to Florida for rehab. The other day, as I opened my Facebook feed, I saw a post. Linda checked in to the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County with that angel I spoke of. She attended her first task force meeting to help fight for positive changes in addiction services and housing in that area. She has grown exponentially over this past year. She needed to. She was sick of hiding, but didn’t know where to look for help. And she found it. All because of an article in a local newspaper.

Man arrested for burglarizing Cold Spring Harbor home while occupied

GOOD COmmuniCatOr WanteD

By Victoria espinoza victoria@tbrnewspapers.com Suffolk County Police arrested a man for burglarizing an occupied home on Fox Hunt Lane in Cold Spring Harbor Nov. 25. Officers said Jeffrey Rice entered an unlocked side door at approximately 11 p.m. on Nov. 24. Rice found a kitchen knife in the house and went upstairs into a room occupied by a 7-year-old girl and her 85-year-old aunt. Rice proceeded to assault the woman before exiting the room and being confronted by the 35-year-old female homeowner. After a brief verbal altercation with the female homeowner, and a brief physical altercation with her 37-year-old husband, Rice was escorted outside the house by the husband and his brother and brotherin-law. The family held Rice outside until police arrived. Second Precinct officers responded and arrested Rice, a Huntington Station resident. The aunt was transported to Huntington Hospital with non-lifethreatening injuries. Second Squad detectives charged Rice with first-degree burglary. His next appearance in court is scheduled for Nov. 30. Attorney information was not immediately available.

Time to end the attacks on Obama and Hillary

Photo by Victoria Espinoza

Suffolk County Legislator William “Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport) holds up signs from a peace rally in Northport.

Unity and vigilance have never been more important Last week, in response to growing tensions and reprehensible actions following the presidential election, leaders from across the Huntington area, including elected officials from both parties, gathered for a press conference to denounce hate and ignorance. The Suffolk County Human Rights Commission also sent a letter to school districts warning teachers and administrators to be on the lookout for incidents of bullying that could be motivated by hate. Port Jefferson Village hosted a peaceful vigil as a symbol of unity for community members of every conceivable background last week. While the editorial staff is slightly concerned events like this are necessary in 2016, we are encouraged that leaders throughout our North Shore communities and across party lines are being proactive in trying to send a clear message: America is a land of opportunity and acceptance for people of all races, genders, nationalities, sexual orientations and religions, and they want it to remain that way. Incidents of hate have occurred across the county, state and country in recent weeks. “One of these incidents is one too many,” Leg. Rob Trotta (R-Fort Salonga) said during the Huntington event. “It’s our responsibility to speak out against it and educate our youth of the ramifications of such actions.” We agree wholeheartedly with Trotta, and plan to do everything we can to continue shining a light on incidents, both positive and negative, relating to this topic, going forward. We’ll need our readers to help us by doing the same.

I was dismayed by the vitriolic letter written by the Rev. Ronald Stelzer appearing in The Times of Smithtown on Thanksgiving. How sad that a man of the cloth, instead of calling for an end to the divisiveness and hateful words that have plagued our nation for well over a year, continues to engage in mean-spirited partisan invective. The election is over and Donald Trump is the President-elect, in spite of having received more than two million fewer votes than his opponent. You would think that would be enough for the good reverend. What possible purpose is served by more vilification, by yet another venomous and

baseless attack on Hillary Clinton and President Obama? You would think a man of the cloth would be able to consider the big picture and understand that many good people, spiritual people, devout people voted for Hillary Clinton. You would think he would understand that the accusations of corruption, mendacity, criminality, fraud, divisiveness, chaos, and amorality he directs at Hillary Clinton could just as easily be turned around and directed at Donald Trump. Even Donald Trump himself has shown more generosity of spirit to his defeated opponent. Again, what is the point of demonizing Hillary Clinton and President Obama yet again? The election

is over. One wonders what George Washington and Abraham Lincoln would make of the Rev. Stelzer’s rhetoric. Not much binding up the nation’s wounds here. It seems the Rev. Stelzer would prefer charity towards none and malice towards all who don’t share his politics. I would remind the good reverend that God is neither a Democrat nor a Republican. Continuing to engage in vituperation to sow further division instead of showing a little forbearance sets a pretty poor example.

David Friedman St. James

A question of double standards In Reverend Ronald Stelzer’s Nov. 17 letter, he expresses relief that Hillary Clinton was not elected, claiming that her political career has been fraught with “corruption, [and] mendacity.” While I will not say that Clinton was a perfect candidate, I think it’s important to point out the double standard set up by these remarks. Recently, Donald Trump met with British politician Nigel Farage, and encouraged Farage to oppose offshore wind farms, as they would be detrimental to the view from Trump’s golf course. This blending of personal interests and politics is exactly what Clinton was criticized for, and it is important to note that Trump seems to be just as willing to use his newfound political standing to bolster his own interests. There is a danger, I think, in supporting personalities rather than

principles, and when we unequivocally support people like Trump, we never correct that problem. I also want to question Reverend Stelzer’s discussion of what he calls “political correctness.” He claims that it is has led to “disdain for the traditional beliefs and morals … of America.” The problem is that “political correctness” is a phrase used by right wing groups to dismiss as merely “political” the idea that we should encourage respect towards all people. I’m sure that the reverend, being a person of faith, would agree with the idea that we must treat all people with respect, so I find it hard to understand what objection remains to this principle after the misleading “politically correct” description is removed. This fight to put everyone on an equal playing field is what makes America great, and I would

argue that many of Trump’s comments about women, Muslims and people of color have worked against this goal of reaching equality. In fact, they have made many Americans feel that they don’t have a seat at the table and are not part of our conversation. I recognize that many are thrilled by Trump’s election, and I truly hope that he ends up being the most honest and inclusive president we’ve had yet. But I also hope we can all understand why some Americans are wary and even scared. These people are not opposed to America and its founding moral principles, they simply want to be welcome to participate in the process of making America an even better place for all.

opinion The tweeted verbal thunderbolts of the next president

V

erbs await like a collection of colors, quivering, shaking and jumping on their palettes to define and describe the unfolding scene. What verbs will we use to describe the future president of the United States, whose name itself can be a verb? Well, for starters, he tweets. We know that fact through his candidacy and it’s a pattern that continues now that he is assembling a cabinet and as he awaits his turn as president. His By Daniel Dunaief tweets represent his direct-to-thepeople message, cutting out the middle man of the media. As with pharmaceutical companies that market their products directly

D. None of the above

to consumers, sometimes Trump’s tweet messages, which crackle like thunderbolts from his fingers, should come with a warning. For example, “Don’t operate heavy equipment while listening to these tweets, which may cause shortness of breath,” or, “If you find yourself shouting approval or disapproval in response to these tweets, try not to read them in church, in a library or any place where shouting could cause a crisis.” When he communicates with the populace, with American leaders or with foreign leaders, what verbs will fill the canvas? He often seems to warn, to threaten and to demand. Maybe he believes American greatness starts with a tough president who insists America and its interests go directly to the front of any line. In recent days, he has weighed in on the discussion about the election, claiming widespread voter fraud prevented him from winning the popular vote “beauty contest.”

Old friendships are golden

T

here were two extra place settings during our Thanksgiving weekend. They were for a couple we met when my husband and her husband were serving at Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, Texas, some 50 years ago — a golden anniversary of sorts. The idea that we met half-a-century ago and have maintained our connection is astonishing and lovely By Leah S. Dunaief because we were quite fond of them then and are happy to still be friends now. When they left the service, about a year before we did, they returned to their home state of North Carolina, and we, of course, returned to New York. Over the years, we have kept up sporadically through Christmas cards stuffed with letters about our lives.

Between you and me

Our family wound up at Sheppard because we made the right decision for the wrong reasons — as so often happens in life. Just after my husband began his internship at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, he came home one evening somewhat puzzled. “Look,” he showed me paperwork, “if I agree to enter this lottery called the Berry Plan, I will be allowed to finish my residency in the specialty I choose, but then I will have to go into the military for two years. The benefit is that I will not be drafted out of my training before I finish, but I will delay starting my practice two years while I am serving Uncle Sam. What should I do?” “Do it, do it!” I urged. “They will send us to Germany or Japan and we will get to see the world.” I yearned to travel and we had not had the chance or the means. The year was 1963, and aside from a few military advisers in Vietnam, there was no war involving the United States. There was a draft but we were at peace. “OK,” my husband said, still seeming dubious. “But only about

Through his tweets, he also leveled attacks against reporters he derides for disagreeing with him. I get it: As an agent of change, Trump may feel it’s his job not to highlight everything that’s going well with the country or to shout encouragement. That, he may believe, would be like telling a kid who has struck out continuously that he’s having a great game. Shifting from the visuals of colors on a page to the sounds at a pep rally, will the Trump presidency repeat similar notes with a single tone? Will he continue to castigate, to criticize, to claim and to attack? Those are just a few of the verbs that describe the approach Candidate Trump took on the contentious campaign trail. At some point, does President Trump become like a strong-willed character in a compelling novel? Will his experiences enable him to make a transition to becoming a president who emits a different tone and who leads to a symphony of greatness that comes

from every part of the country? Will the cajoling, the criticizing and the arguing transition to educating, inspiring and elevating? Yes, I know his approach and policies may help educate more Americans and may help bridge the gap between the testing levels American students reach compared with students in other nations. Certainly, as Trump demonstrated during his campaign stops, he can and has rallied people. What actions, what verbs, will describe the way Americans and, indeed, people around the world, react to his message? As an agent of change after the polished rhetoric of President Obama, Trump may not want to compete and, indeed, may sprint away from the pontifications his predecessor proffered. That, however, doesn’t preclude Trump from the kinds of verbs we hope we can employ to fill the pages of the next four years. Will he encourage, empower and reassure Americans about the government that supports, protects and serves them?

5 percent of those who apply are selected.” He went off the next morning with the completed paperwork and the two of us promptly forgot about the whole matter. That is, until the next spring when he came home and announced, still unsure what he had gotten us into, that he had been selected. I was happy at the prospect of travel in our future. With the benefit of hindsight, you know that by 1965, we were in a hot war and I will tell you that many physicians were drafted out of their specialty training and sent to Vietnam as general medical officers. Some of them never returned. We, meanwhile, now had one child and a second on the way when we were sent to Texas. It was not Germany or Japan, it wasn’t even California or New Jersey, as we had requested when asked by the Air Force, but it was — just by dumb luck — stateside, which meant we could be together. In fact, we had a house to live in, our first, with a washer and dryer, and each child had his own room. Wichita Falls is not a particularly

beautiful place, as far as scenery goes. There were no real trees, little grass, no bodies of water and only an occasional bit of mesquite shrub blowing across the brown dirt. But it was heaven for us, and we were thankful to be there for the duration of the two years. We learned to eat chicken fried steak and barbecued beef on a bun, and before too long our third child was on the way. It was on the base that we met our friends, who were serving under similar circumstances. He was a pediatrician who worked alongside my husband at the hospital, and with his wife they also eventually had three children, went home and started their professional lives together. But we stayed in touch, as I have explained, and they have rejoined my family with lots of conversation and laughter. Old friends are treasures because they are irreplaceable. We are older now, quite a bit older, and we might not have recognized each other immediately on the street. But the basic persons that we were are intact.

Blue Devils girls’ hoops players prep for season After losing several of its starting players to graduation last June, the Huntington girls’ basketball team is regrouping. The Blue Devils just wrapped up a short fall league schedule as head coach Mike Kaplan worked to configure a winning combination for this winter. Kaplan’s first six seasons in Huntington produced three league titles and a pair of trips to the Suffolk County Final Four, including a loss in the 2015 Class AA final to Commack. The Blue Devils are 86-33 over that span. Kaplan is on track to possibly notch his 100th career victory this winter. Huntington went 9-10 in Kaplan’s first season, losing in the Suffolk playoff outbracket. The team finished 7-11 the following year and failed to reach the postseason. Since then, the Blue Devils have reeled off records of 13-6, 201, 21-1 and 16-4, and won a pair of League IV crowns and the League III co-championship last winter. Starters Brooke Baade, Katie Reilly and Taylor Moreno all graduated this past spring, so Kaplan has had to reshuffle the deck. The returning varsity players have been tuning up for many months. The Blue Devils played in a summer league, and athletes are engaged in individual training programs. Returnees include seniors Anna Gulizio, Emma Petrizzi, Tara Wil-

son, Torre Palmer and Shannon Maloney; juniors Niamh Condon, Alexandra Heuwetter and Katie Seccafico; and freshmen Megan Byrnes and Abigail Maichin. Heuwetter earned All-League and All-Conference honors last winter. Maichin grabbed the Rookie of the Year Award. Kaplan expects to put a strong team on the court again this winter. “I’m really excited about this season,” said Gulizio, who is expected to be the squad’s floor general. “I love the team and all the girls, and I’m really excited to be back in the gym. We’re going to have another great season.” This new season was officially underway Nov. 14, when tryouts were held for the varsity and junior varsity teams. The Blue Devils traveled to scrimmage Northport Nov. 26, and will visit Walt Whitman Dec. 1. Kaplan has scheduled six nonleague games against Glen Cove (Dec. 7), Deer Park (Dec. 9), Holy Trinity (Dec. 13), Amityville (Dec. 15), East Islip (Dec. 28) and Kellenberg (Dec. 30). All six challenging contests will be played at home in Louis D. Giani Gymnasium. Home and away Suffolk League III games are set with Centereach, North Babylon, West Islip, Copiague, Newfield, Smithtown East and Smithtown West. The Blue Devils will honor their seniors on Feb. 9 at home prior to the regular season

finale against Smithtown East. “I’m so excited for the season to start,” Petrizzi said. “It would be really cool to win a fourth consecutive league championship in my last year on the team.” Kaplan’s staff includes varsity assistant Marissa Bergman, Kaplan and junior varsity coach Frederick Vasselman. The trio has been meeting about the program and developing plans for the season. “I was looking forward to the start of practice,” Seccafico said. “We have all been working hard in the off-season. We are hoping to have a great year and continue the successful Huntington girls’ basketball tradition.” —HUntington AtHletics

East Northport Middle School students gathered together for a volleyball tournament Nov. 18 to raise money for a former East Northport Middle School graduate as he battles leukemia. Hosted by Students and Teachers Against Restricted Substances, the annual Volley for Victory event featured studentcreated teams from different grade levels. Candy and T-shirts were sold at the door to help raise money, and the gymnasium was packed with students. A DJ provided music as students dressed in matching outfits waited on the bleachers for their team to be called. Students from Northport High School also attended the event, serving as positive role models while helping to run the tournament. STARS advisors Roberta Heller and Alison Pieron organized the tournament, which has taken place for nearly 35 years, with the club donating proceeds to a different worthy cause each year. Other than giving back, the event provides students with a safe activity in a safe environment where the message of making good choices is reinforced throughout. “The event allows students to enjoy life and truly make a difference,” Pieron said, “while being drug free.”

Members of team Volley Ballers were crowned as the winners and received special T-shirts to commemorate their win.
