In addition to the donations, Lerner said her parents have been completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and well wishes they have been receiving. She said community members have brought her family food, offered to pack her lunch, and even reached out to offer her transportation to events like an upcoming ACT exam. “We are incredibly gratified by the response,” she said. Continued donations are most appreciated as the family anticipates medical bills for their son’s continued hospital care, according to Lerner. For those anxiously awaiting updates on Miles’ medical condition, the family will be hosting a table at the Northport Cow Harbor Day race Sept. 15 to share information with the community and sell navy bracelets bearing the slogan “Miles4Miles.” “He doesn’t know it right now, isolated in his hospital room, but he is really being backed up by all the people he knows and loves,” Lerner said. Northport’s cross-country team will be participating in the Great Cow Harbor 10K race this year to show its support for Miles, according to Lerner, running the miles that he cannot.

Laurel Hill Road poses ‘dangerous’ risk, residents push for change Northport homeowner looks to petition Huntington officials, Suffolk County to conduct traffic flow study Northport parents are calling on school and town officials to examine what traffic improvements can be made to Laurel Hill Road after a teen was struck by a car outside Northport High School last Tuesday. Miles Lerner, a 14-year-old preparing to begin his freshman year, was struck by a 2005 Honda sedan while crossing Laurel Hill Road Sept. 4 on his way to cross-country practice. While Northport-East Northport school district residents called the accident “upsetting” and “disturbing,” they weren’t surprised. “If my complaints over the past few years had been heeded, it probably would have prevented this accident,” Jeantet Fields, a Laurel Hill Road homeowner said during a board of education meeting Sept. 6. Fields said he provided Suffolk County police officers with a video recording of the Sept. 4 accident captured by his home surveillance cameras that shows Miles being struck and launched into the air “like a rag doll.” “It was very disturbing” he said. “It’s one of those things you cannot unsee.” The four-year Northport resident has admitted to being a bit of a squeaky wheel on the issue of traffic safety along Laurel Hill and Elwood roads. Fields said it’s a multifaceted issue resulting from insufficient parking, drivers not obeying the 20mph school zone speed limit and traffic frequently backing up at the high school during drop-off and dismissal. He said buses and cars back up at the

traffic light on Elwood Road, waiting to make the left onto Laurel Hill Road, and then again while trying to make left turns into the high school’s parking lots. Some drivers resort to using the shoulder of the road to pass on the right. “I’ve gotten the middle finger salute for trying to pull out of my driveway,” Fields said. Northport resident Michael Hawkins, whose son is also a member of the cross-country team, said traffic was worse than normal the morning of Sept. 4 as the district was hosting a superintendent’s conference day at the high school. “I believe the district is partially to blame for the security guards who were standing at the entryway to every parking lot, asking every person who went into the parking lot for I.D.,” he said. “What happened is it backed up traffic for blocks and blocks
and blocks around the high school.” Hawkins asked Northport’s board of education and school officials to consider this a “teachable moment” and ensure steps are taken to increase parking spots and resolve traffic concerns. Fields said he believes a more active approach to revamping traffic flow on the roads surrounding Northport High School is needed. The father said he observed a truck passing over the double yellow line, to the left of a stopped school bus, while at the end of his driveway picking up his 6-year-old daughter. Upon reviewing the security footage, Fields compiled a video documenting about 25 drivers utilizing the westbound shoulder of Laurel Hill Road to illegally drive past stopped buses and cars in a roughly 30-minute time frame Sept. 4. The Northport homeowner said he has shared
the video with Suffolk County Police Department’s 2nd Precinct Community Oriented Police Enforcement and offered to share it with Town of Huntington and school official in the hopes of encouraging action. There was a speed radar sign posted near the end of Fields’ driveway Sept. 6. “The speed sign is there as a result of that neighbor coming forward, showing us those videos,” Inspector William Scrima of the 2nd Precinct said. “We did step up some enforcement in that area.” Scrima said there has been some previous traffic issues in the area back in 2015, but had received complaints recently prior to the Sept. 4 accident. “People were slowing down for the first time,” he said. “It was a short-term behavioral change, and there’s a need for long-term change.” Huntington Supervisor Chad Lupinacci (R) had received phone calls from concerned Northport residents by Sept. 7, according to town spokeswoman Lauren Lembo. “I’ve spoken with Superintendent [Robert] Banzer and their safety team has reached out to Steve McGloin [town director of transportation and public safety] to see if there are any improvements on Laurel Hill Road to be made,” Lupinacci said in a statement. “Superintendent Banzer is reaching out to the county in regard to Elwood Road.” Fields said he plans to start an online petition to ask town and county officials to conduct a traffic study of the intersection on how it can be improved. “My goal right now — honestly and a bit selfishly — is to change the behavior of motorists on this street before my daughter has to cross the street to go to high school,” he said. “I have seven years. If I could, I’d do it in less.”
Northport’s K-Wing gets state approval to reopen following air quality sampling BY SARA-MEGAN WALSH SARA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM
Students can safely take a deep breath while attending classes in the newly reopened K-Wing of Northport Middle School. Northport-East Northport school district has reopened the K-Wing of Northport Middle School for student and staff use after environmental testing for volatile organic compounds conducted by consultants J.C. Broderick & Associates Aug. 27 determined it was safe for use. The study and its conclusions were reviewed by officials of New York State’s Department of Health. “Based on the air concentrations and information presented in the report, the levels of volatile organic compounds detected at the time of the sampling are well below any levels that have been associated with adverse health effects,” wrote Michael Hughes, a section chief in the state’s Bureau of Toxic Substance Assessment, in a Sept. 4 email. “The NYSDOH therefore concurs with
the conclusion in the report that staff and students occupy the K-Wing in the school.” On Aug. 27, J.C. Broderick & Associates staff conducted volatile organic compound, or VOC, sampling in K-Wing classrooms to determine if extensive summer renovations had resolved indoor air quality concerns. The district had closed off the area for the 2017-18 school year after an earth science teacher reported smelling gasoline fumes and an investigation found the source to be a petroleum-based warehouse beneath the K-Wing. The testing was performed using 26 Summa Health cannisters, according to J.C. Broderick & Associates — two in each of the classrooms, the hallway and underground warehouse to test for any hazardous airborne chemicals. The samples were then sent to York Analytical Laboratories to be analyzed and compared against five sets of guidelines. “In the report, there were a couple of VOCs that were detected,” Superintendent Robert Banzer said at the Sept. 6 board of education meeting.
The first chemical, methyl methacrylate, was measured at 1.4 to 5.1 micrograms per cubic meter of air in four classrooms, both hallway samples and the warehouse. These levels exceed New York State DOH’s 95th percentile concentration of 1.1 micrograms per cubic meter based on the average found in roughly 100 Albany residential homes. The environmental experts used safety data sheets, which list any potential chemicals found in various products used, to determine it wascoming off floor wax applied to the new flooring surfaces in the K-Wing. The second chemical, styrene, was measured at 20 to 27 micrograms per cubic meter of air in the warehouse only, above the 2.3 micrograms per cubic meter of air set as the 95th percentile by the state DOH. The data sheets showed it was notably found in the shrink-wrap used to wrap pallet products stored in the area. Once these two chemicals were found to be above the 95th percentage, the J.C. Broderick & Associates report compared its findings to four
health-based guidelines, the most stringent being the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Reference Dose Concentration. The EPA’s guidelines provide an estimate of the maximum level of a VOC that can be continuously inhaled for a lifetime before adverse effects are seen and contains built-in safety factors to protect sensitive groups, such as young children or the elderly. “The sampling performed did not identify any hazardous concentrations of VOC parameters in any of the sampled locations when compared with the above referenced health-based values,” reads the J.C. Broderick & Associates Aug. 31 report. The methyl methacrylate found at 1.4 to 5.1 micrograms is below the 700 micrograms per cubic meter guideline set by the EPA, as was styrene’s 27 micrograms under the 1,000-microgram limit. Any concerned parent or staff member can find the full results of the air sampling reports and related correspondence on the district’s website at www.northport.k12.ny.us/district/ bg_northport_ms_information.

Commack board of ed investigation costs district $72K A month after a controversial investigation led to the resignation of a Commack board of education member, the price tag on that review has finally come through. The Commack school district spent an approximate total of $72,443.24 on the fourmonth investigation of former trustee Pamela Verity. The board of education announced it intends to remain at four out of five members until the May 2019 school elections. Board Vice President Jarrett Behar initially announced the district’s special investigation cost more than $60,000 at the Sept. 6 meeting. When the total was first announced, Verity said she found that number to be low compared to what she had seen before resigning from the board. “I saw the bills prior to being off the board, and they definitely exceeded that number,” she said. However, school officials said the district has since received additional invoices and corrected its initial estimate bringing the total bill up to more than $72,000. “What was not included in those [initial] costs were the costs of legal issues leading up to the investigation,” said Laura Newman, the assistant superintendent for business and operations. “Those costs were reflected in the April billing by
Lamb & Barnosky, totaling $10,585.06. In addition, there will be an additional bill of $1,798.97 reflecting August charges from Lamb & Barnosky.” The law firm of Lamb & Barnosky, which serves as council to the district, was paid nearly $49,000, including disbursements, from April through August for work done relating to the investigation, according to documents obtained by TBR News Media. Attorney Jeffrey Smith, who had been hired on contract as an independent investigator at a $150 hourly rate, was paid $17,550 for writing the 80-page report released Aug. 2.

dissenting vote. Carpenter said she worried that without some sort of election it could harm the board’s ability to build trust in the community. “If there’s a way to get [information of the vote] out there — with word of mouth or on social media — if we do vote and do decide to go in that direction, you’re electing us to be here, share those decisions and be here with you,” she said. Behar said he feared there would be low turnout for a special election, considering that only 6 percent of eligible voters cast a ballot on the district’s 2018-19 budget and, historically, significantly less people have voted in prior special elections. “For somebody to serve for that limited period of time to get that low of a level of community participation, the cost benefit analysis is just not there,” the vice president said. James said the district did not want to rule out community involvement in the decision process, but it did not want to spend an estimated $12,837 to host a new special election. Several community members spoke at the Aug. 16 meeting advocating for a special election. “It’s ridiculous,” East Northport resident Dan Fusco said. “The district didn’t want to pay $13,000 to host special elections but they’d spend [tens of thousands] on an investigation? That doesn’t make sense.”

so and hearing my grandparents’ stories of their families, it left me with a deeper appreciation for my ancestors. Then, of course, there were the differences in our preferred styles of music, which in later years has only enhanced my knowledge of songs from a wide array of eras. There were plenty of Sundays watching “The Lawrence Welk Show,” many New Year’s Eves with Guy Lombardo and his orchestra playing in the background, and even a few nights singing along with Mitch Miller and the Gang. My grandparents’ house was also where my creative side was nurtured. After my grandfather retired as a sheet metal worker from the Brooklyn Navy Yard, he took up oil painting. I remember watching him at his easel, and I still have a few of his creations, including one he started when I first moved in. He would sit with me and help me with my school projects and taught me how to draw houses, trees and faces. While my creative talents may have developed in another way through writing, I don’t doubt for a second that being able to think creatively through drawing helped with my craft. I lost my grandfather when I was 18 and my

grandmother when I was 22. Despite that being decades ago, I still find myself many times in life saying, “Grandma was right about this,” or “Grandpa was right about that,” though I would shake my head at some of the advice when I was younger. Many years later, I’m glad their advice and the memories live on. So, thank you to them and all the grandparents who make a difference in the lives of children.

Candidates for judgeship discuss qualifications, cross-party endorsements Scully and Whelan face off in Democratic primary Sept. 13, but they could meet again in the general election Political races for local judgeships don’t tend to garner much attention, but the 2018 race to preside over Suffolk County’s Surrogate’s Court is breaking the mold. Judge John Czygier Jr., who currently oversees the county’s Surrogate’s Court, Page A22 is nearing the mandatory retirement age, leaving a vacancy candidates Tara Scully and Theresa Whelan are competing to fill. The position, which yields a salary in excess of $200,000, carries a 10-year term, and the occupant may serve until age 70. The candidates face off in the Democratic primary Sept. 13 for the party line in the general election. The situation has drawn criticism far and wide, largely on the practice of cross-party endorsement deals. The candidates sat down Sept. 6 for an exclusive interview with TBR News Media’s editorial staff to set the record straight.
BY KYLE BARR AND ALEX PETROSKI
What is Surrogate’s Court?
Surrogate’s Court is responsible for handling all issues involving wills and the estates of people who die. The court also handles guardianship hearings and some adoption cases for children whose parents are deceased. Each of New York state’s 62 counties has one surrogate judge except New York and Kings counties, which have two each. The court’s rulings can involve large amounts of money, making it uniquely susceptible to political patronage. Scully and Whelan both said they have the utmost respect for Czygier and seek to continue his legacy and practices. “Surrogate’s Court is there to help families when they can’t really help themselves,” Whelan said. “It has to be fair.” Scully stressed the importance of having empathy in Surrogate’s Court. “It’s a sanctuary and it needs to be treated like that,” she said. “People there are dealing with extremely difficult issues.”
Family Court Judge Whelan vies for nod
Whelan, 56, a Wading River resident, said she is throwing her hat into the ring for the Democratic nomination because of her qualifications and experience. “I have the bench experience,” Whelan, a registered Democrat, said. “I thought that it was important that an actual Democrat represented the Democratic Party in this race.” The nominee took the bench in Suffolk County Family Court in 2008, before becoming the supervising judge in 2016. There, she hears primarily abuse and neglect cases. Her responsibilities include overseeing nine judges and seven support

magistrates in two courthouses. “I have assisted hundreds, if not thousands of children to be successfully reunited with their parents,” Whelan said. “And if that’s not possible, we try to find them another loving option.” Since 2009, Whelan has led Suffolk County’s Child Welfare Court Improvement Project, an initiative to address court practices when a child is removed from a parent’s care while trying to ensure their safety and well-being. The nominee said she is an active member of the Suffolk County Bar Association and often lectures for them. She co-chaired Suffolk’s Family Court & Matrimonial Law committee for three years and is a former president of the Suffolk County Women’s Bar Association. Whelan’s husband, Thomas, is also a judge, currently serving as a Suffolk County Supreme Court justice. Despite current calls for an end to party patronage, Whelan said the position she’s running for is not a tool to fix the political system. She hopes to win on her own merits. “I have support of statewide judges, the chief judge, the administrative judge, the bar association, etc. [in my roll on the Family Court],” the nominee said. “I stand here as my own candidate.”
Scully cites her experience in elder law
Scully, 41, of Setauket, said she’s seeking the Democratic nomination after calls by Newsday and other elected officials to challenge the patronage system affecting this and other judicial races. A registered Republican, she pointed to her years working in elder law as part of the experience she can bring to the Surrogate’s bench.
“I do recognize I have an uphill battle,” Scully said. “But I love the Surrogate’s Court, and I believe the sanctity of our courts has to be preserved.” Scully started her career working in the executive chamber of former New York State Gov. George Pataki (R), before serving as counsel in guardianship proceedings for the state’s Appellate Division’s Mental Hygiene Legal Service. Like Whelan, she also is a former president of the Suffolk County Women’s Bar Association. Scully began her Port Jefferson-based practice in 2011 focusing on elder law. She said she has extensive experience in estate planning and administration, asset protection and guardianship proceedings, all of which she said would be important knowledge for Surrogate’s Court. Like Whelan, Scully also has political connections in the family as her father, Peter Scully, has name recognition in Suffolk County. He previously served as the regional chief for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and currently works as one of the deputies of County Executive Steve Bellone (D). Tara Scully said she often provides free legal representation for needy seniors, veterans and those with disabilities. “I have a poor business sense in the amount of pro bono work I take on,” she said. In 2015, Scully ran for Brookhaven Town District Court judge where she said she saw firsthand the way party patronage has entwined itself with politics after turning down a crossendorsement deal. She lost by 173 votes. “I was so green I didn’t realize at the point that in many circumstances it was business as usual,” Scully said. “I think a lot of people were upset with
me that my gut reaction was revulsion.”
Although judges are expected to set aside their personal beliefs, politics has marred the race, though not necessarily thanks to the candidates themselves. Neither Whelan nor Scully were involved in this race as of early summer. Newsday reported earlier this year District Court Judge Marian Rose Tinari, who is married to Conservative Party chairman, Frank Tinari, and is a Conservative herself, had secured the Democratic Party line in the Surrogate’s Court race as a result of a deal with Suffolk Democratic Party chairman, Rich Schaffer, which was one of many similar deals between Suffolk party bosses. In June, Newsday ran an editorial in the form of a want ad, calling for a candidate “with a backbone to resist pressure from political bosses,” in response to the cross-endorsement of Tinari. Scully said she sprang into action as a result of the editorial to meet a tight deadline, and garnered enough signatures to run as both a Democrat and Republican. With a primary challenger stepping up to the plate, Tinari withdrew. Democrats then selected Whelan, who called herself a lifelong Democrat, as their candidate. Scully has argued her decision to enter the Democratic primary — despite being a registered Republican — has provided voters with a more transparent choice than if a Conservative had remained on the Democrat line. “I think the real point is six weeks ago, eight weeks ago, the Democrat candidate was a Conservative, and Democrats would go in and vote and not have any idea that the individual they’re voting for is not in line with their party philosophies,” Scully said. “Cross-endorsement deals are dictating who our judicial choices are, and the voter is unaware an individual without political backing, without a political upbringing or allegiance to political parties is never going to take the bench.” Whelan argued that voters are equally in the dark with a Republican in a Democratic primary. If she loses Thursday, there will be one name occupying both major party’s lines come November, as Scully has already been penciled onto the ballot by the Republican Party. Whelan joked when voters enter booths Sept. 13 they’ll simply be deciding between two Irish last names with little knowledge of the politics. She also took issue with Scully portraying herself as “standing up for Democratic principles” on her campaign site. “If I don’t win the primary, voters don’t have a choice, and I think that’s fair to say,” Whelan said. “I’m presenting myself as a Democratic Party member and the experienced judge, so that Tara and I can actually have a real election on Election Day, and I think that’s what she was trying to accomplish in the beginning.”

Informed electorate a must
When voters head to booths Thursday to participate in several statewide primaries, it is unlikely that the race for a judicial seat presiding over Suffolk County’s Surrogate’s Court will be at the top of their minds. We understand. The governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general races are likely what will drive primary voters to the polls, and deservedly so, as those are high-profile positions with juicy political implications for those who track things like the shifting nuclei of both parties. So for those who haven’t paid close attention to what’s going on in a judicial race for a court most people probably never heard of, there’s a few things we think voters should know. Tara Scully and Theresa Whelan are set to square off in the Democratic primary Sept. 13. Scully, a registered Republican, has already gotten the nod to secure that party line in the general election, meaning if she wins the Democratic primary, her name will appear next to both major political parties come November. Whelan, on the other hand, is an actual Democrat, though Newsday has reported that based on a deal cut by party bosses, if she wins the primary she’ll also be granted the Conservative Party line in the general election. Have we lost you yet? To summarize, on November’s general election ballot either a Republican will have both major lines or a Democrat will be listed as both a Democrat and a Conservative. To try to get to the bottom of this mess, we invited the candidates in for a discussion with the TBR News Media editorial staff Sept. 6. While we are not endorsing a candidate, we have some thoughts we’d like to share anyway. We admire what Scully did — stepping up and answering a call for a candidate unshackled by predetermined deals. She was able to earn enough petition signatures in a short window of time to run on both major party lines. However, if the result is she is representing both Democrats and Republicans on the ballot in November, it’s difficult to argue that voters still have a fair choice. And while Whelan is a Democrat seeking a nod from her own party, rewarding backroom dealing designed to circumvent the will of voters is not a practice that should be encouraged either. Having said all of that, after being in a room with the candidates for an hour, a few things became very clear. Both candidates are running with their hearts in the right place. They each expressed a desire to preside over a court that requires a touch of empathy and compassion, with fairness being of the utmost importance and politics divorced from the job. We also love to see political races featuring two accomplished and qualified women. Each has served as president of the Women’s Bar Association in addition to a litany of other impressive resume lines. Both seem to realize as well that they are essentially — no pun intended — surrogates having the political baggage marring this race imposed upon them. The discussion was respectful, truthful and honest, and each expressed that she had nothing bad to say about the other personally. Regardless of the outcome of this race, we hope what voters glean from it is yet another reminder that citizen vigilance is not just important for a healthy democracy, but in reality, it’s the only thing keeping it alive. Research candidates. Figure out what these people stand for before you enter a voting booth or be prepared to live with the consequences. Letters … We welcome your letters.

Letters to the editor
Threats of school violence are ‘no joke’ Over the past few years law enforcement and education officials have been dealing with a significant increase in the number of reported school threats. While some of these reports are the result of the heightened sensitivity in the school community, many more are the result of pranks and disruptive behavior. Until the source and nature of such reports can be determined, each incident is given high priority. The initial response and follow-up investigations require significant investments in terms of police resources, and the educational institution’s operations are subject to significant disruption.
The purpose of this letter is to remind students, parents and the community at large of the gravity of this situation. Statements or remarks that appear to be threatening to a school, students or staff members will be handled in the same manner that comments about bombs and explosions are dealt with at our airports. In other words, with “zero tolerance.” The fact that the threat was made as some sort of prank or joke will not protect the responsible individual(s). Statements made aloud, in written material, in graffiti, posted on any kind of so-
cial media platform, transmitted electronically over the phone, fax, email, etc. about firearms, shootings, explosives, bombs or any other threat, will result in a swift and comprehensive investigation. When appropriate, the individuals responsible for these threats will be arrested and prosecuted in criminal court. Don’t joke around with your future. Robert Brown Chief of Patrol Suffolk County Police Dept.
The spectacle of voting on Kavanaugh I’m writing on Sept. 8, and we don’t know yet whether the U.S. Senate will confirm the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. A pessimist, I’m betting “yes,” by a strict party line vote, 51-49. What I want to comment on is the spectacle we have watched this past week. The Republicans refusing to wait for the National Archives to arrange and vet Judge Kavanaugh’s voluminous record; assigning the job to a crony, withholding some 100,000 pages (about 90 percent) and dumping 42,000 pages on the Democrats at the last second (Monday night); Kavanaugh following his own cynical advice to Republican judgeship nominees not to discuss specific policy or legal issues — he either filibustered vaguely or refused flat out to answer pertinent questions as “hypotheticals,” or refused to discuss how his reasoning on already-decided cases
compared to the court’s — this playbook was followed by Chief Justice Roberts at his confirmation hearings, and by Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch. Let’s focus on his newly released 2002 email on Roe v. Wade: It’s “not settled law ... since the [Supreme Court] can always overrule its precedent, and three current justices ... would do so” (my emphasis). He is saying what we all know, that Justice Roberts’ pretense of “impartial umpire” is just that, a pretense, and we can all predict, with virtual certainty, how any justice would vote on any given case. For Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, as well as Alito and Roberts, short-listed by the rightwing Federalist Society, and enthusiastically nominated by President Trump, who has repeatedly said he would nominate only candidates who would overturn Roe v. Wade, we know that they will always favor
corporations over workers, deregulation over the public good, or right-wing evangelicals imposing their will over people who don’t share such views. Gorsuch held that a company could fire a worker who refused to freeze to death for them — his colleagues overruled him. Kavanaugh held that SeaWorld was not responsible for the safety of a worker killed by an orca — his colleagues overruled him, validating OSHA regulations. Kavanaugh invented an “in loco parentis” (in place of a parent) role for Homeland Security to try to prevent a 17-year-old refugee girl in their custody from getting an abortion, as was her right — his colleagues overruled him. We all know we can’t trust Kavanaugh’s testimony, but we can all predict exactly how he will vote. Arnold Wishnia Setauket
Sticking up for community news We moved to Miller Place 18 years ago and one of the first things we did was get a subscription to the Times Beacon Record. During the years it has been a source of information, education and entertainment from and about our local community, state
and nation. Contrary to the harangue of our current president, the press is not the enemy of the people, but the voice of the people. We rely on you to ask the questions we cannot ask, and to investigate the issues that can affect our daily lives. The
Times Beacon Record is a great paper and I want to thank you for your journalistic service to our communities.
The opinions of columnists and letter writers are their own. They do not speak for the newspaper.

School is open, drive carefully
didn’t see a horrifying and preventable accident this morning. I didn’t see a little girl, let’s call her Erica, on her way to her first week of school. Erica, who, in our story, is 10 years old, wants to be a veterinarian, and has pictures of animals all over her room. She begged her parents so long for a kitten that they relented. They saw how well she took D. None care of the kitten, putting drops of the above in her eyes when BY DANIEL DUNAIEF she needed them, making sure she got the correct shots and even holding her kitten in the office when they
had to draw blood to test for feline leukemia, which, fortunately, her kitten didn’t have. Two years after she got her kitten, Erica continued to ask for additional animals, adding a fish, a rabbit and a hamster to her collection. Each morning, Erica wakes up and checks on all the animals in her little zoo, well, that’s what her father calls it, to see how they’re doing. Her mother is convinced that the animals respond to her voice, moving closer to the edge of the cage or to the door when they hear her coming. When mother leaves to pick up Erica from school, the animals become restless. I didn’t see Erica walking with her best friend Jenna. Like Erica, Jenna has a dream. She wants to pitch for the United States in softball in the Olympics. Jenna is much taller than her best friend and has an incredible arm. Jenna hopes the Olympics decides to have softball when she’s old enough and strong enough to play. Jenna thinks bringing a gold
medal to her father, who is in the Marines and has traveled the world protecting other people, would be the greatest accomplishment she could ever achieve. I didn’t see a man, whom I’ll call Bob and who lives only four blocks from Erica and Jenna, put on his carefully pressed light-blue shirt with the matching tie that morning. I didn’t witness him kissing his wife Alicia, the way he does every morning before he rushes off to his important job. I didn’t see him climb into his sleek SUV and back quickly out of his driveway on the dead-end block he and Alicia chose more than a dozen years earlier. I didn’t see Bob get the first indication from his iPhone 7 that he had several messages. I didn’t witness Bob rolling his eyes at the first few messages. I didn’t see him drive quickly toward the crosswalk where Erica and Jenna were walking. The girls had slowed down in the crosswalk because Jenna pointed out a deer she could see across the street in a backyard.
Jenna knew Erica kept an animal diary and she was always on the lookout for anything her friend could include in her cherished book. I didn’t see Bob — his attention diverted by a phone he had to extend to see clearly — roll too quickly into the crosswalk, sending both girls flying. I didn’t see the ambulances racing to the scene, the parents with heavy hearts getting the unimaginable phone calls, and the doctors doing everything they could to fix Jenna’s battered right arm — her pitching arm. I didn’t see it because it didn’t happen. What I did see, however, was a man in an SUV, driving way too quickly through a crosswalk, staring at his phone instead of looking out for Erica, Jenna and everyone else’s children on his way to work. It’s an old message that we should repeat every year: “School is open, drive carefully.” This Column is reprinted from September 14, 2017 issue.
