Huntington designated Clean Energy Community By Victoria Espinoza victoria@tbrnewspapers.com Huntington’s future just got a little greener, as the town recently earned the state’s Clean Energy Community designation. The label is part of a New York State Energy Research and Development Authority initiative to encourage towns to implement clean energy actions, save energy costs, create jobs and improve the environment. In addition to providing tools, resources and technical assistance, the program recognizes and rewards leadership for the completion of clean energy projects. The designation also means Huntington is eligible to apply for $250,000 in state funding that can be applied to future energy projects. “Huntington has long been committed to leading by example in undertaking energy conservation measures and promoting clean energy initiatives,” Town Supervisor Frank Petrone (D) said in a statement. “We appreciate this recognition from NYSERDA and look forward to implementing other projects that would be made possible by the state funding.” The initiative involves a partnership between NYSERDA and PSEG Long Island. Huntington is the second municipality on Long Island following Smithtown and the sixth statewide to receive the designation, which requires a municipality to complete four of 10 clean energy actions, at least two of them after Aug. 1, 2016. John Rhodes, NYSERDA’s president and CEO, praised Huntington on its efforts.

Huntington recently became the second town in suffolk to receive the clean Energy community designation from new york state. “Congratulations to the Town of Huntington on this important achievement and for helping to galvanize the local community to reduce energy use and improve the environment,” he said in a statement. “Communities are central to the state’s clean energy efforts under Gov. [Andrew] Cuomo’s [D] Reforming the Energy strategy, which is building a cleaner, more resilient and affordable energy future for all New Yorkers.” In order to qualify, Huntington established a solar program, set up training

protocol for energy code enforcement, and started including electric vehicles in the town’s fleet of cars. The Solarize Huntington program helps homeowners utilize solar energy to save on utility costs, and is supported by the United States Department of Energy’s Sunshot Rooftop Solar Challenge. It includes a group purchasing and community education program that provides guidance on the process of installing solar residentially and features a discounted quote for town residents from Direct

Energy Solar, a Ronkonkoma-based solar energy supplier. Huntington has utilized solar energy at town hall with the installation of solar panels, and has installed a net-zero solar-powered electric vehicle charging station at the Huntington Station Long Island Rail Road station parking garage. The town board also amended town code to fast track approval of solar installation permits and to adopt the New York State Unified Solar Permit to reduce costs and delays for solar projects. As for energy code enforcement, town code compliance officers and other town officials were trained in the best practices in energy code enforcement, including collaborative plans, reviews and joint onsite inspections of local construction projects. The town also leased a 2017 Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, and purchased a Level 2 electric charging station double pedestal for charging cars. One of the two pedestals in the charging station, which will be installed at town hall, will be used for the town-owned vehicle, and the other will be available to the public. Huntington is also the first municipality on Long Island to adopt the Climate Action Plan, a road map to improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to mitigate and adapt to the negative effects of climate change. Former President Barack Obama (D) introduced a Climate Action Plan for the United States as from June 2015.

Just the way you look (in town hall) tonight By Victoria Espinoza victoria@tbrnewspapers.com For 22 years Cupid has visited Huntington Town Hall for Valentine’s Day and spread his love throughout the building — with the help of Town Clerk and Marriage Officer Jo-Ann Raia. Raia has been serving as marriage officer for the town since 1989, and in 1995 she started a tradition of a “marriage marathon.” “I normally perform marriage ceremonies year round,” she said. “However in 1995 I thought it would be romantic to begin a Valentine’s Day marriage ceremony marathon. The couples I united over these past

years received this idea enthusiastically. It is a privilege and a pleasure for me to unite these couples and to share in their happiness as they embark on their new lives together.” The free event consists of couples partaking in a small marriage ceremony with Raia presiding, and then the new bride and groom cut a cake and enjoy drinks and snacks with their guests, donated by local vendors, as well as gifts for the couple and the maid of honor and best man. This year 11 couples were wed in town hall. Local merchants have donated flowers, baked goods, decorations and other gifts throughout the years, and this year Raia said 34 businesses have donated to the event, including Copenhagen Bakery, The

Flower Petaler, Rise Above Bakery, Fashion in Flowers and more. Huntington residents Brian Walling, 42, and Cari Endres, 40, took advantage of this romantic event after finding out about it while paying off a parking ticket. “It was the last day before I got another $100 charge and I saw the flyers when I was at town hall,” the bride said. “I asked him if he was working Valentine’s Day, and he said no, so I told him ‘we’re getting married on Valentine’s Day.’” The couple met at a bar while skiing in Vermont two years ago. “We were basically both watching TV rooting against the Patriots, because we’re both Giants fans and then I don’t think

we’ve ever been apart since that night,” Endres said. Walling said the hug the first night ensured him that Endres was the one for him. “The conversation was fun and we definitely had a lot in common and we were just having a good time, but what sealed the deal was the hug,” he said. “It was the best hug ever.” Walling proposed last July while the pair were spending July 4th weekend with family at Endres’ family lake house. “My father passed away three years ago and he knew how special the lake house was to me,” Endres said. “We were up there with family after a lobster dinner sitting under tiki torches in bathing suits still and that was it.”

‘Red Light Robin Hood’ avoids prison time with plea

RED LIGHT continued on page A8

‘I was willing to go to jail from the beginning because I’m sticking up on behalf of those people who don’t have a voice anymore. ’ —stephen ruth jr

153616

The merry adventures of Suffolk County’s “Red Light Robin Hood” continued last week as the Centereach resident who took matters into his own hands by tampering with red light cameras across county intersections struck a plea deal with prosecutors. The agreement reached will place him on interim probation for one year in lieu of any prison time. Stephen Ruth Jr., who has been crusading against the county’s red light camera program since 2015 in an effort to “take the power back” by exposing what he considers government corruption and helping save Suffolk residents’ lives — for which he’s been called a domestic hero on social media — pleaded guilty in Riverhead Feb. 8 to a felony charge of criminal mischief. Since the county first installed red light cameras at busy intersections in 2010, which snap flashing photos of cars that run a red light or don’t come to a complete stop before turning right on red, they’ve been widely opposed across the county. Ruth, who’s become the boastful face of the opposition — as evidenced by his smiley mug shot after first tampering with the devices in 2015 —has consistently called for the program’s repeal before the Suffolk County Legislature. He said the cameras and shortened yellow lights, “shortened to cause red light running for a profit,” are responsible for fatalities and accidents on the roads, have been illegally constructed without an engineer signing off on them, and are nothing more than a Suffolk County “money grab.” “I was willing to go to jail from the beginning because I’m sticking up on behalf of those people who don’t have a voice anymore,” Ruth said. “These cameras are completely illegal and the [county] is not allowed to collect any money off them whatsoever ... I knew this was going on and made my own news.” Under the plea deal Lake Grove attorney, David Raimondo, said if Ruth successfully completes his probation, the felony plea will be dropped to a misdemeanor. The 44-year-old real estate salesman may also have to pay up to $85,000 in restitution for all the cameras and equipment he’d left inoperable — a charge that will be challenged during a restitution hearing in April. Raimondo said he and his client will fight because “we believe that the entire red light camera system program is illegal and every single ticket issued from day one is a nullity.” In the wake of the court ruling, Raimondo acknowledged that it was a good plea. “This is something the county has to atone for and will atone for in civil litigation ... it is not Stephen’s or his family’s cross to bear,” Raimondo said. “Why should Stephen sacrifice his personal freedom for what I think is nothing more than enterprise corruption?” As Ruth has always worn his criminal tampering and ob-

Theatre Three cast members from the show ‘Class Dismissed! The Bullying Project’ with East Northport Middle School students.

Casting a spotlight on bullying in Northport Sixth-graders learned the importance of being an “upstander” during an anti-bullying show by Theatre Three at Northport Middle School on Feb. 2. Also, East Northport Middle School students visited the school to take part in the event. The traveling production titled “Class Dismissed! The Bullying Project,” featured original music and addressed the issue of bullying in schools. The auditorium was packed with students as they watched the story about two students

being bullied in different forms. The show educated sixth-graders on making good choices, signs of cyberbullying and how not to be a bystander. At the conclusion of the performance, students asked the cast questions. Some students asked the performers if they had ever been bullied and others asked for advice about standing up to a bully. “We’ve been to many schools and these students were incredibly engaged and focused on the stage,” said Theatre Three performer Dylan Poulos. “They looked in-

vested in the story we were trying to tell and it was very rewarding to come to the school and experience that.” “We are always looking for ways to highlight the need for students to be upstanders, not bystanders, so what we liked about this was that it really demonstrated the power of see it, say it, stop it,” Principal Timothy Hoss said. “Bullies are going to target others but it is the upstanders that make the difference. We want to empower those kids and we think this show does a great job of that.”

Committee formed to create drag strip in Suffolk By Kevin Redding kevin@tbrnewspapers.com Suffolk County is putting the pedal to the metal in an effort to build a drag strip for its need-for-speed residents. A large crowd of more than 100 drag racing enthusiasts filled the auditorium at the Suffolk County Legislature Feb. 7 and cheered on as Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory (DAmityville) announced the formation of an ad hoc committee, consisting of a bipartisan group of legislators, representatives from the county’s Department of Planning and the County Supervisors’ Association, also members from the racing community, to start the process of bringing a family oriented motorsports park to the county. “Long Island has thousands of families who are passionate about racing as a sport, and providing a legal outlet for drag racing could bring tremendous benefits to Suffolk County,” Gregory said at the press conference. The ad hoc committee was suggested by Legislator Tom Cilmi (R-Bay Shore) after representatives from the “Long Island Needs a Dragstrip” advocacy group charged into the Legislature’s auditorium in December to protest a resolution on the agenda. The legislators had been considering a bill for a master plan in Yaphank, but the racing community argued against accepting the master plan, claiming that the property would be better used as a drag strip. The group had been looking at some areas included in the master plan for a potential site to build on. Even though the Yaphank property wound up not being anywhere near large enough for what they were proposing, the passionate group had the legislators’ interest. “I was really inspired by the passion of all those that came to the Legislature and we’re going to do all we can to try and make it a reality,” Cilmi said in a phone interview. In terms of the crowd at both gatherings, Cilmi said, “it’s worth pointing out that in the room were young children, lots of women and lots of guys ... it was a large group of very enthusiastic people and it’s not every day that you fill an auditorium with people all interested in one issue.”

Suffolk County Legislature Presiding Officer duWayne gregory discusses Long islanders’ desire for a drag strip in the county. The legislators on the committee — Gregory, Cilmi, Al Krupski (D-Cutchogue), and Rob Trotta (R-Fort Salonga) — will explore potential locations in Suffolk for the drag strip, which is projected to occupy between 100 and 200 acres, as well as the economic boom a full-fledged drag strip could bring to the struggling county. Gregory said the committee hopes the drag strip will deter the illegal and dangerous street racing that’s been known to take place in areas like Wyandanch. Another task is to make sure the local community and neighboring towns are behind the project and understand their quality of life will not be disrupted by it. In building the drag strip, the committee anticipates growth in the local racing-related industry, such as shops that paint the racing cars and work on engines, and job creation in those fields. There will also be food concessions within the arena, and spectators who could potentially come out and spend money at surrounding restaurants and hotels. Gregory said any large venue has the potential to attract thousands of people and effectively increase the county’s sales tax, which has been flat for the last few years: “Long Is-

illegal operation, also wants to spotlight that the county continues to delete videos of any and all accidents that take place at intersections. James Emanuel, a retired Suffolk County police officer, has dedicated himself to researching and testifying against the program, and is one of Ruth’s avid supporters. “I’ve spoken to a lot of police officers who privately are a big fan of what he did,” Emanuel said. “You get to the point where you have to push back against the system — you just don’t have a choice. The guy saw a danger and his attitude was, ‘I’m gonna push back.’ He turned himself in every single time and he didn’t have to do that.” Suffolk County Legislator Leslie Kennedy (R-Nesconset) acknowledges that red light cameras, although useful in some intersections, are overused and costly. “I think what Ruth thought he was doing was making a statement, and he clearly did make a statement,” she said. “But you have to stay within the parameters of the law to make a statement that’s not going to get you in big trouble.”

land is losing money in sales tax as residents and tourists flock to nearby states, including New Jersey, to use their drag racing strips.” He said estimates show that a drag strip could generate more than $100 million in revenue. He proposed that this would be “a safe and enjoyable attraction that people [will] want to come to.” Krupski, who grew up in Cutchogue and remembers his grandfather taking him to the Riverhead Raceway when he was young, said the racing culture is still very much alive. “A lot of people are really interested in this and enjoy racing and working on cars and so to most people it’s more than a hobby, it’s more of a lifestyle,” he said in a phone interview. “I give DuWayne Gregory credit for putting this together. It’s a nice bipartisan group and everyone sees the value in it.” While still too early to confirm any serious location ideas, the committee and members of the advocacy group have areas like Enterprise Park in Riverhead on a list of potential development sites. One of the motorsport’s advocates has expressed interest in contributing a piece of their own property. “It’s going to be tough to find a spot to put this because a lot of people won’t want

to hear it,” Trotta said in a phone interview. “It’s going to have to be somewhere far away from most people, but we’re going to try our utmost [best] to find a place.” Trotta, who has been consistently vocal about the county’s current economic state, said while he doesn’t necessarily believe the drag strip will be “a savior of Suffolk County,” there’s potential to bring in extra revenue. “There’s not a resort in Nassau or Suffolk, and Long Island is bigger than most cities,” Trotta said. “There’s an opportunity for us to make something and mix it with the drag strip. We need people from the city to come out here and spend money.” During the press conference, John Cozzali, a Mastic resident and founder of “Long Island Needs a Drag Strip,” said he was happy to see the Legislature taking a serious look at his group’s long-dreamt of project. “We look forward to working on this initiative, which we believe will have a positive economic impact for Long Island and will create a safe place for the new generation to come and race,” Cozzali said. According to Gregory, the full economic analysis, and conceptual planning of the racetrack should take roughly nine months.

Three Northport student-athletes signed national letters of intent Feb. 1 to play their sport of choice at the college level. The signing-day ceremony allowed seniors Leah Dentale, Chris Parker and Stephanie Rapp to put their commitments to paper, with their families and coaches standing by in support. Dentale will be attending Drew University in the fall to play soccer, while teammate Rapp will be playing soccer at Saint Joseph’s University in Pennsylvania. Parker

will be playing volleyball for Springfield College. Northport Director of Physical Education, Athletics and Health Paul Klimuszko wished the students luck in their transition. “On behalf of the entire Athletic Department, I wish nothing but continued success for Stephanie, Leah and Chris as they continue to participate in athletics on the next level,” he said. “I look forward to tracking their achievements next year on the soccer fields and volleyball court.”

Sixth-graders from Northport Middle School played a game of basketball against the AMP1 basketball team.

Hoops team inspires students Northport Middle School students had the unique opportunity to play against and hear from motivational amputee basketball team AMP1 last month. During the two days with the team, the athletes spoke to gym classes and played basketball games against students. AMP1 is the only organized traveling team of amputees playing stand-up basketball in the country with a mission to motivate, educate and inspire others.

The team consists of players from all across the country that have overcome lower limb amputations. AMP1 player and Long Island native Robert Anthony Rodriguez gave the crowd high-fives and got students excited about each game. “It feels amazing to be able to come out and inspire others,” he said. “The kids are loving it and we are really enjoying getting them hyped up.”

Clockwise from left, Kyree Johnson crosses the finish line in the 4×400-meter relay; that relay team of Mark Rafuse, Lawrence Leake, Johnson and Anthony Joseph (on far right) took gold (Jonathan Smith and Brian Pierre have also competed on the relay team); Ryann gaffney with her fourth-place plaque; and Leake and Johnson with Huntington head coach Ron Wilson.

Kyree Johnson gets the gold he was looking for Lawrence Leake breaks meet record with first-place finish in 600 run By Kevin Redding kevin@tbrnewspapers.com When Huntington head coach Ron Wilson and his winter boys’ track and field team stepped into the Suffolk County state qualifier meet at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood, they had one thing on their mind: redemption. And that’s exactly what they felt when they went home. In the last couple weeks, the Blue Devils had experienced their fair share of shortcomings, notably during its Armory Track Invitational Feb. 3, when senior Shane McGuire, a leg of the team’s 4×400-meter relay, tore his hamstring. The next day, at the large school county championship, the Blue Devils’ top sprinter Kyree Johnson felt a tweak in his own

hamstring before competing in the long jump and, at the request of Wilson, sat out of competing altogether. The team ended up losing the county championship 52-51. Had Johnson jumped that day, they would’ve won, the coach said, but it wasn’t worth the risk. It was that tight loss that hurt them most, dropping from first to fourth in local published polls — only fueling the fire that would light up the track in Brentwood Feb. 13. “Before we started, I said to the boys, ‘alright fellas, everyone thinks we’re not as good as we used to be, but we need to go out here and prove them wrong,’” Wilson said. “At the meet, we let everything take care of itself and when we finally started running, I was like ‘redemption at last.’” That redemption came in the form of col-

laborative speed and agility. Johnson, whose week of resting paid off, placed first in both the 55-meter dash, with a personal best time of 6.41 seconds, and 300 dash, with a meet-record time of 34.8, qualifying him to compete in the state championships March 4 at Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex on Staten Island. “After I won the 55-meter dash and saw my time of 6.41, that made me realize that I’m not hurt anymore,” Johnson said. “I just relaxed and stayed calm, and looked at it like every other meet ... because if I didn’t, I’d start making myself nervous, so I just kept thinking ‘it’s just another regular meet.’” Running the anchor leg, he also helped the Blue Devils take home gold in the 4×400 relay in a time of 3 minutes, 32.15 seconds, along with teammates Lawrence Leake, a senior, Mark Rafuse, an eighth-grader, and Anthony Joseph, a senior. The Huntington teammates will be joining Johnson at the state championship March 4. Leake, who, according to Wilson, is one of the toughest and hardest working young men he’s ever coached, also placed first in a competition of his own. He took gold in the 600 run and broke the meet record with a time of 1:21.70. The record was previously held by Brentwood’s Greg Santiago, who finished in 1:21.99 in 2000. “During the race, I figured everyone else was going to get out pretty hard the first two laps to make sure I wasn’t going to catch them, so I just stayed close and in striking distance until the last lap and put the pedal to the metal and let it go,” Leake said. “It feels pretty good to have a record beat all by myself.” Smithtown West senior and state qualifier Michael Grabowski had a similar strategy on his dash to first place in the 3,200 run, which he finished in 9:29.19. Competing against Jack Ryan of Westhampton Beach and Jonathan Lauer of Sachem North, Grabowski

knew he had to play it smart by feeling the race out for the first five laps, and push it for the final sixth. “I was comfortable with my pace and stuck with Lauer, until Ryan made a move and went past him with about 300 meters to go, and opened the race up,” he said. “As soon as Ryan went past Lauer, I followed Ryan and waited until the last lap and kicked. Once I started my kick, there was no going back and he didn’t really have a chance.” Marius Sidlauskas of Smithtown East placed third in boys’ 1,600 with a time of 4:29.40; Daniel Claxton of Smithtown East placed first in boys’ high jump with a jump of 6 feet, 10 inches; Elijah Claiborne, Isaiah Claiborne, Tyler Dollhausen and Dan O’Connor of Northport placed first in boys’ 4×800 relay in 8:09.76; and Ryann Gaffney of Huntington placed fourth in girls’ 55 hurdles with a time of 8.75.

Travel ban executive order is “un-American” Photo by Victoria Espinoza

A couple gets married during Huntington’s marriage marathon.

Celebrating community love North Shore residents shared their love and affection for one another this Valentine’s Day, but in one town, love spread literally throughout every corner of Main Street. Huntington Town Clerk Jo-Ann Raia hosted the town’s annual marriage marathon, an event in which Raia performs marriage ceremonies for as many couples as she can throughout Feb. 14. Each couple is treated to a free, romantic ceremony and a small reception. The event is the epitome of “it takes a village” and is a beautiful example of a town coming together in the most supportive way. More than 30 local merchants donate cakes, cookies, decorations and flowers to help bring the marriage marathon to life. After each couple is married, they’re also given a variety of gift certificates and grab bags from businesses in the village, and a local photographer has donated his time for the past two decades to document each ceremony and send the couple their photos free of charge. Raia, at the helm, came up with the idea in 1995 and has not slowed down. She’s married more than a dozen couples in some years, and she and the rest of her office staff spend hours the day before transforming Huntington Town Hall into Cupid’s home away from home. Raia, who has saved a photo of herself with every bride and groom she has joined together in the past 22 years, brings joy and warmth to every ceremony she performs. This is a tradition of which the Town of Huntington and the many people who come together to help make Valentine couples’ special day as perfect as possible should be proud. As a local paper covering local news, it’s events like this that remind us how lucky we are to cover unique communities, where people genuinely care about their neighbors and want their lives to be as special as possible.

“I’ve spoken of the shining city all my political life … In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here.” President Ronald Reagan expressed these views during his farewell address in 1989. How can America be the shining city on a hill when we are closing our doors to refugees, and building a wall along the southern border? Of course we all want America to be safe and we don’t want immigrants taking jobs from native-born Americans. But the

evidence suggests that immigrants commit crimes at a lower rate than native-born Americans; no individuals from the seven recently banned countries have killed Americans for decades; and that immigration, in general, has a net positive effect on federal, state, and local budgets. Therefore, this anti-immigrant, anti-Islamic, anti-Latino fervor being propagated by our president is not about safety or jobs; it is about discrimination on the basis of race, religion, and nationality – plain and simple. As Pope Francis said on Saturday “it’s hypocrisy to call yourself a Christian and chase away a refugee or someone seeking help, someone who is hungry or thirsty, toss out someone who is in need of my help.” This past Saturday, students,

family members and loved ones from Islamic countries en-route to the U.S. were turned away at the border, strip searched, and humiliated. Why? Because of their religion and the color of their skin. This is as un-American as it gets. Thankfully, several Republican representatives and senators broke with their own party, acknowledging this cruelty. I especially want to thank Senators John McCain (R-Arizona) and Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) for their public statement against this cruel policy. Where was our Representative, Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley)? Same place he always is — behind President Trump. What a sad day to be an American and a Long Islander.

Jaymie Meliker Port Jefferson

Donald Trump restore the ‘Greatest Generation’ I am a veteran of The Greatest Generation, and now my heart bleeds for what is occurring to our nation since 1945, a lifetime of 72 years. Our last total victory ended in the defeat of Japan. All other conflicts have resulted in “no win wars.” This guilt must be placed directly upon political

policies of past administrations. It is time for our nation to once again forge forward with the wisdom and the courage of our past patriots who made America the greatest nation in the world. Our new administration must recreate The Greatest Generation once again. Dark clouds of dan-

ger now threaten the survival of our republic. I pray that our creator gives you the wisdom and the courage, Mr. President, to guide and protect you in your crusade to make America great again.

Leonard Henderson Port Jefferson

OpiniOn The funny side of getting older

I

was watching television late at night, after my wife drifted off to sleep, when I first saw him. I don’t tend to stop channel surfing when a comedian appears. He looked like a friend of mine, he had a devilish smile and he wasn’t shouting or barking obscenities at me. He was balding and overweight and was the definition of unglamorous. He was talking as if I was in the room with him and he was sharing observations with me. I’m going to paraphrase one By Daniel Dunaief of the first jokes I heard. “Getting old sucks,” he began. “You know, when you’re in your 20s and you come in and tell the

D. None of the above

doctor your shoulder is bothering you, you have, like a hundred options. The doctor can take a piece of your hip and put it in your shoulder, he can make you a new shoulder, and he can fix you right up so you’re good as new.” The audience nodded appreciatively. “But, then, you get older and you go to the same doctor with the same complaint and you wait. The doctor smiles at you and listens to your symptoms but, then, he doesn’t offer any heroic solutions. He gives you that understanding look.” “So, what can we do about this?” you say. “Well, you can take some Advil if you want,” he says with a shrug. “But what about all those other options?” you ask. “What about moving around body parts, building a new shoulder and fixing me up so I’m better than I was?” “Those are no longer possible,” he says, as he shakes his head slowly. Getting old is difficult. I know doctors and lifestyle coaches and

entire industries are dedicated to reversing the effects of aging. Lines on your face? Hey, no problem, there’s a cure for that. Putting on weight as you age? Sure, we can fix you right up, send you food, cook food for you, or convince you through hypnosis that you, in fact, don’t need food. If a character Tom Hanks played in “Cast Away” could survive for several years on an island by himself with just a volleyball for his friend and a few fish and coconuts here and there, you can most certainly get through a day without coffee, doughnuts or any of the other bare necessities that call to you from the addicted parts of your bodies. When our kids were small, we used to pack the back of the car with everything we might need. Pack ‘N Play? Check. Stroller? Check. Diaper bag? Got it. As they got older, we didn’t have much to bring and just told them to get in the car and buckle themselves in.

Somewhere along the lines, though, as our kids needed less to go from point A to point B, we wanted more. Our conversations before we leave the house go something like this. “I can’t find my vitamins,” my wife says. “Did I take one this morning?” “I don’t know, but do you know where my reading glasses are?” I ask. “No, but when you start looking for your distance glasses, they’re on your forehead,” she smiles, pointing at me. “Oh, good, thanks. Have you seen my Invisalign braces?” I ask. “I’m not sure if the ones in the kitchen are your new ones or your old ones, but there’s a set on the counter,” she offers. As I scoop up my plastic braces, I see something familiar next to them. “Hey, honey?” I shout. “Your vitamins are on the kitchen table.” Getting old may be challenging but it can also be comical. Just ask comedian Louis C.K.

he headline spoke to me: “More Women in Their 60s and 70s Are Having ‘Way Too Much Fun’ to Retire.” After reading the article, which didn’t disappoint, by Claire Cain Miller in last Sunday’s New York Times, even though I’ve been at odds lately with The Times, I think there is more to the story than fun. Two recent analyses indicate that “women have become By Leah S. Dunaief significantly more likely to work into their 60s and even 70s, often full time” and “many of these women report that they do it because they enjoy it,” according to the article. For those 65-69 years of age,-the

numbers have almost doubled since the late 1980s from 15 percent to nearly 30 percent. Perhaps more surprising is the leap in percentage terms for those 70-74 years of age, more than doubling from 8 to 18 percent. Who are these women? Those working are more likely to be higher educated and to have savings, studies have shown, while those not working more commonly are in poor health and have low savings, depending on Social Security and perhaps disability. But for their health problems, they too might be among those working. Why, if they don’t strictly need the money, are the women of “a certain age” still working? I can offer some of the answers from my own life. Working, full or part time, is more than just “fun,” although there is nothing wrong with enjoying one’s work. A job can offer a purpose to those who are now empty nesters or perhaps without spouses. There is satisfaction in having one’s

daily accomplishments measured in some way, whether with salary or by problems solved. Presumably holding a job offers something of value to community and society. There is also the social aspect of interacting with others and working as a team. Social ties are linked to longer life spans. In addition, working, unless at a job that is exactly the same each day and could be done by a robot, requires thinking and planning, which in turn helps exercise the brain. And the structure that reporting for work imposes in the course of a week might be welcomed by many. Sometimes working might be a way to preserve a marriage. In a household where the husband might have been the sole breadwinner but is now retired, the spouses might not be completely comfortable with that new arrangement. Work is a respected reason to be apart some of each day. There might also be a sort of prestige in still working. When people are retired, they may be

asked, “What did you do?” as if life has now passed them by. That’s opposed to “What kind of work do you do?” Having a job might convey greater importance. If the work one does is inherently engaging and one learns from it and meets interesting people, there might be the motivation to keep one’s hand in and stay abreast of new developments and changes in the field. And no matter how much savings one might reasonably have, drawing down dollars in retirement can be scary. The urge is to stay in place financially and not to drop down. Bringing a stream of income into one’s life can offset that fear. Finally, for many there is the absolute necessity to earn money in order to survive. They may wish to retire but feel they are unable to afford that luxury. Whatever the reasons, society benefits from the continuing efforts of experienced workers. It goes without saying that our newspapers treasure older workers alongside our young.
