Northport to Move Bus Depot and Refueling Station BY DAVID LUCES AND DONNA DEEDY DONNA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

At a Northport-East Northport board of education meeting Nov. 21, Robert Banzer, superintendent of schools, recommended to the board that they seek other fueling alternatives to the two 4,000-gallon tanks and look at options to move buses to another location. The district has already begun researching options for alternative tank locations and placement of buses, according to the superintendent. In addition, a plan will be presented at the Dec. 12 board of education meeting. The decision comes less than a week after an article in The Times of Huntington/Northports disclosed that the district was in violation of laws governing petroleum bulk storage. In a letter sent to the Northport school community, Banzer stated that the Department of Health reinspected the fueling tanks and indicated to the district that the previous citations were corrected. Banzer also said in the letter that they would conduct refresher training on the latest guidelines for tank maintenance and inspections, schedule periodic tests

of all tanks throughout the districts with an outside environmental testing firm, ensure consistent and documented followup with the Department of Health when seeking follow-up inspections and formalize internal communications, which includes the superintendent and board of education. Similarly, the board of education approved two other recommendations brought forward by newly appointed members of the Subcommittee on Soil Testing and Reviewing District Assessments: •Authorize follow-up testing of indoor air quality to follow the same protocols as the August 2018 assessment as well as air quality testing in individual rooms. •Request the Suffolk County Department of Health perform a follow-up inspection to its May 2017 visit and its subsequent inspection report. The members of the subcommittee are Jeanette Conroy Teri, Joe DeFranco, Lauren Handler, Louise Ko, Paul Lageraaen, Kristen Painter, Nicole Repetti, Damien Taylor, Stacy Weisberg and Bob Howard. Board members on the subcommittee are Vicki Buscareno, Larry Licopoli and Tom Loughran.

Northport-East Northport Central School District is relocating the district’s bus depot. The announcement comes within one week of The Times of Huntington/Northports report on oustanding violations to petroleum bulk storage laws from February 2019.

Family Legacy Remembered After Woman Dies in Driveway Accident BY DONNA DEEDY DONNA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Nancy Richard died tragically Monday, Dec. 2, after being struck by a car driven by her husband, Peter, who was backing out of their driveway at their Fort Salonga home. After walking her grandchild to the bus stop, Richard was returning to her home at 9 Concord Drive, when she was struck by a 2015 Mercedes S550 at 7:30 a.m. Nancy Richard, 79, was transported to Huntington Hospital where she was pronounced dead. Peter Richard, 83, was not injured. Suffolk County police state that the vehicle was impounded for a safety check. The accident occurred just a little more than one year after the family donated more than $3.5 million to establish the expansion of the pediatric emergency care unit of Stony Brook University Hospital. The Stony Brook Children’s Hospital lobby was named in the family’s honor in recognition of that gift. The university has acknowledged the couple’s philanthropic effort has meant better services for the families and children on Long Island.

“Nancy Richard was a remarkable friend of Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, and all of us send our heartfelt condolences to Peter and the entire Richard family,” said Dr. Kenneth Kaushansky, senior VP for Health

Sciences and dean of the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University. The couple’s daughter Susan Habberstad, a St. James resident, had played an important role in identifying Stony Brook Children’s

Hospital as a worthwhile project to support. In a profile posted on the university’s website, she recognized her parents’ strong family values and how the donation instilled a strong sense of pride: “My parents’ priority in their life is their children,” Habberstad stated. “And it’s not just their kids; it’s their grandchildren, it’s everybody’s kids. Everybody’s kids are so important, and they are Nanny and Pop to everybody. They’re Nanny and Pop to hundreds of kids.” Peter Richard was the longtime executive vice president of the P.C. Richard & Son chain of appliance and electronics stores. The retailer has serviced Long Island for more than 110 years. Peter is the grandson of the store founder Pieter Christian (P.C.) Richard. The business today has 66 showrooms in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania, three distribution centers and two service centers. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations in Nancy Richard’s memory to Stony Brook Children’s Hospital at stonybrook.edu/childrenshospitalgiving. Funeral services have not yet been announced.

County

Water Quality Expert Answers Questions About the Island’s Water Supply BY DONNA DEEDY DONNA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Peter Scully, Suffolk County deputy county executive and water czar, responds to questions from TBR News Media’s editorial staff: 1. You’ve been called Suffolk County’s water czar. Why does Suffolk County need a water czar? The need for the county to have a highlevel point person to advance the water quality agenda of County Executive Steve Bellone [D] is a result of two factors: The high priority that the county executive has placed on water quality issues, and the tremendous progress his administration has made over the past seven years in building a solid foundation to reverse decades of nitrogen pollution that has resulted primarily from the lack of sewers in Suffolk County and reliance on cesspools and septic systems that discharge untreated wastewater into the environment. The county executive succeeded in landing $390 million in postHurricane Sandy resiliency funding to eliminate 5,000 cesspools along river corridors on the South Shore by connecting parcels to sewers, and the county’s success in creating a grant program to make it affordable for homeowners to replace cesspools and septic systems with new nitrogen-reducing septic systems in areas where sewers are not a cost-effective solution, prompted the state to award Suffolk County $10 million to expand the county’s own Septic Improvement Program. These are the largest investments in water quality Suffolk has seen in 50 years, and the county executive saw the need to appoint a high-level quarterback to oversee the implementation of these programs. 2. Which groundwater contaminants are the highest priorities for Suffolk County? In 2014, the county executive declared nitrogen to be water quality public enemy No. 1. The nitrogen in groundwater is ultimately discharged into our bays, and about 70 percent of this nitrogen comes from on-site wastewater disposal (septic) systems. Excess nutrients have created crisis conditions, causing harmful algal blooms, contributing to fish kills and depleting dissolved oxygen necessary for health aquatic life. They have also made it impossible to restore our once nationally significant hard clam and bay scallop fisheries, have devastated submerged aquatic vegetation and weakened coastal resiliency through reduction of wetlands. Nitrogen also adversely impacts quality of drinking water, especially in areas with private wells, although public water supply wells consistently meet drinking water standards for nitrogen. Other major contaminants of concern include volatile organic compounds, known as VOCs. For example, there is perchloroethlyene, historically from dry cleaners; and petroleum constituents — most recently MTBE, a gasoline additive — from

4. Which industries currently generate the most groundwater pollution in Suffolk County? The county’s Department of Health Services Division of Environmental Quality staff advise that, historically, the major contributors to groundwater pollution in the county were dry cleaners and fuel storage and transfer facilities. However, current dry cleaning practices have minimized any possible groundwater discharges, and modern fuel facilities are engineered to more stringent code requirements that have substantially eliminated catastrophic releases. Low-level discharges are still a concern, and are the subject of the county’s VOC action plan to increase inspections and optimize regulatory compliance. There are thousands of commercial and industrial facilities, most of which have the potential to pollute — for example, with solvent cleaners. Best management practices and industrial compliance inspections are key to minimizing and eliminating further contamination.

fuel storage and transfer facilities. Then there are pesticides. Active ingredients such as chlordane, aldicarb and dacthal have been banned, but some legacy contamination concerns exist, especially for private wells. Some currently registered pesticides are appearing in water supplies at low levels, including simazine/ atrazine, imidacloprid and metalaxyl. Emerging contaminants include PFAS, historically used in firefighting foams, water repellents, nonstick cookware; and 1,4-dioxane, an industrial solvent stabilizer also present at low levels in some consumer products. 3. Are the chemicals coming from residential or industrial sites? Contamination can emanate from a variety of sites, including commercial, industrial and residential properties. Many of the best-known cleanup sites are dealing with legacy impacts from past industrial activity. Examples include Grumman in Bethpage, Lawrence Aviation in Port Jefferson Station, Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton and the Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant in Calverton. There have been

hundreds of Superfund sites on Long Island. Fortunately, most are legacy sites and new Superfund sites are relatively rare. More recently, the use of firefighting foam has resulted in Superfund designations at the Suffolk County Firematics site in Yaphank, Francis S. Gabreski Air National Guard Base in Westhampton and East Hampton Airport. The foam was used properly at the time of discharge, but it was not known that PFAS would leach and contaminate groundwater. The county’s 2015 Comprehensive Water Resources Management Plan found that some chemicals, such as VOCs, continue to increase in frequency of detection and concentration. While some of this is attributable to legacy industrial plumes, experts believe that residential and small commercial sites are partially responsible for contamination. This is partly because any substances that are dumped into a toilet or drain will reach the environment, and because solvents move readily through our sandy aquifer. Septic waste is, of course, a major source of contamination. Residential properties can be also responsible for other pollution, such as nitrogen from fertilizers and pesticides.

5. The word “ban” is often a dirty word in politics, but do you see benefits to banning certain products, and/or practices, for the sake of protecting the county’s drinking water supply? (The bans on DDT, lead in gasoline and HFCS, for example, were very effective at addressing environmental and human health concerns.) Policymakers have not hesitated to ban the use of certain substances — DDT, lead in gasoline, chlordane, MTBE — in the face of evidence that the risks associated with the continued introduction of a chemical into the environment outweigh the benefits from a public health or environmental standpoint. Based on health concerns, I expect that there will be active discussion in the years ahead about the merits of restricting the use of products that introduce emerging contaminants like 1,4-dioxane and PFCs into the environment. 6. If people had more heightened awareness, could we slow or even eliminate specific contaminants? As consumers, can people do more to protect groundwater? There is no question that heightened awareness about ways in which everyday human activities impact the environment leads people to change their behaviors in ways that can reduce the release of contaminants into the environment. A good example is the county’s Septic Improvement Program, which provides grants and low-interest loans for homeowners who choose to voluntarily replace their cesspools or septic systems with new nitrogen-reducing technology. More than 1,000 homeowners have applied for grants under the program, which set a record in October with more than 100 applications received. WATER QUALITY Continued on A7


DECEMBER 05, 2019 • TIMES HUNTINGTON & NORTHPORTS • PAGE A7

WATER QUALITY Continued from A6

If a home is not connected to sewers, a homeowner can replace their cesspool or septic system with an innovative/alternative on-site wastewater treatment system. Suffolk County, New York State and several East End towns are offering grants that can make it possible for homeowners to make this positive change with no significant out-of-pocket expense. Consumers can choose to not flush bleaches or toxic/hazardous materials down the drain or into their toilets. Consumers can also take care to deliver any potentially toxic or hazardous household chemicals to approved Stop Throwing Out Pollutants program sites. Homeowners can choose not to use fertilizers or pesticides, or to opt for an organic, slow-release fertilizer at lowest label setting rates. 7. Can you offer examples of products to avoid or practices to adopt that would better protect the drinking water supply? Consumers can choose to not flush bleaches or household hazardous materials down the drain or into their toilets. Consumers can also take care to deliver any potentially toxic or hazardous household chemicals to approved STOP program sites. Homeowners can choose not to use fertilizers or pesticides, or to opt for an organic, slow-release fertilizer at lowest label setting rates. 8. Aside from banning products or chemicals, and raising awareness, how do you address the issue? Promoting the use of less impactful alternatives to products that have been shown to have a significant and/or unanticipated impact on public health or the environment, on a voluntary basis, is a less contentious approach than banning a substance or placing restrictions on its use through a legislative or rulemaking process. Such an approach should only be taken with the understanding that its success, value and significance will depend in large part on public awareness and education. 9. What about product labeling, similar to the U.S. Office of the Surgeon General warnings about cigarettes, or carcinogens in California, etc.? Can the county require products sold to include a groundwater contamination warning? The question of whether the county Legislature has authority to implement labeling requirements could be better addressed by an attorney. 10. People, including some elected officials and people running for public office, sometimes say that sewage treatment plants remove all contaminants from wastewater. Can you set the record straight? What chemicals, including radioactive chemicals, are and are not removed from wastewater via sewage treatment? Tertiary wastewater treatment plants are designed primarily to remove nitrogen, in addition to biodegradable organic matter. However, wastewater treatment is also effective

at removing many volatile organic compounds. Some substances, such as 1,4-dioxane, are resistant to treatment and require advanced processes for removal. Evidence shows that the use of horizontal leaching structures instead of conventional drainage rings may facilitate removal of many pharmaceuticals and personal care products, known as PPCPs. Advanced treatment technologies, such as membrane bioreactors, are also being tested for efficacy of removal of PPCPs. Staff advise that the mere presence of chemicals in wastewater in trace amounts does not necessarily indicate the existence of a public health risk. All wastewater treatment must treat chemicals to stringent federal and state standards. In some cases, such as for emerging contaminants, specific standards do not exist. In those cases, the unspecified organic contaminant requirement of 50 parts per billion is commonly applied. 11. Can you provide an example of a place where residential and industrial groundwater contamination concerns were reversed or adequately addressed? There are numerous examples, mostly under the jurisdiction of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, in which groundwater concerns have been addressed through treatment to remove contaminants. Because health and safety are always the most important issues, the first priority is typically to make sure that people who live near an impacted site have a safe supply of drinking water. In areas served by public water suppliers — Suffolk County Water Authority or a local water district — this is not usually an issue, since public water suppliers are highly regulated and are required to test water supply wells regularly. In areas where people are not connected to a public water system, and rely instead on private wells, the Suffolk County Department of Health Services will work with the water supplier to identify properties that are not connected to a public water system and then contact homeowners to urge them to have their water tested at no charge to make sure that it is safe for consumption. Over the past several years, Suffolk County, New York State and the Suffolk County Water Authority have worked together to connect hundreds of homes that had relied on private wells to the public water system, to make sure people have access to safe drinking water. 12. Are you hopeful about addressing the issues? I am hopeful and optimistic about the success of efforts to reverse the ongoing degradation of water quality that has resulted from reliance on cesspools and septic systems. For the first time in Long Island’s history, environmentalists, business leaders, scientists, organized labor and the building trades all agree that the long-term threat that has resulted from the lack of sewers to both the environment and economy is so great that a long-term plan to address the need for active wastewater treatment is not an option, but a necessity. Experience shows that public awareness can be a significant factor in driving public policy.

Officials Offer Grants to Promote Septic Upgrades

The Suffolk County Septic Improvement Program was launched on July 3, 2017, at the website www.reclaimourwater.info. The program provides homeowners looking to install new nitrogen-reducing septic systems — known as I/A OWTS — with county grants up to $20,000 to offset the increased costs of these new technologies. In addition, homeowners can also qualify for a state grant of up to $10,000 for a total of $30,000 in grants. The county has enough funding to issue approximately 80 grants per month. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and priority is given to high- and medium-density residential parcels located within the 0- to 25-year groundwater travel time or within 1,000 feet of enclosed water bodies. Postinstallation landscaping and irrigation restoration are the responsibilities of the property owner.

Suffolk Water Authority Approves $20 Quarterly Fee to Clean Up 1,4-Dioxane

BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Suffolk County residents are being asked to reach into their wallets to help the water authority deal with the ongoing presence of 1,4-dioxane in local groundwater, which is the sole source of drinking water on Long Island. The Suffolk County Water Authority announced Nov. 22 that the board approved a $20 quarterly fee added onto customers bills starting Jan. 1, 2020. The bill will go toward the cost of developing and operating treatment systems for filtering 1,4-dioxane and other perfluorinated compounds PFOS and PFOA in anticipation of New York State mandating such regulations. “As we’ve said since state officials first began considering the regulation of 1,4-dioxane and perfluorinated compounds, we fully support taking whatever measures are necessary to ensure our customers continue to have a drinking water supply that is among the best in the country,” said SCWA CEO Jeffrey Szabo. “But, as we’ve also said, these regulations come at a high cost. We need the funds that will be raised by the

quarterly fee to develop the treatment systems to meet the new standards.” In an October presentation to Suffolk County legislators, SCWA proposed installing 31 new advanced treatment systems at a number of sites where the levels of 1,4-dioxane are higher than the state proposed limit, which is 1 part per billion. Water officials and environmental activists have made 1,4-dioxane a topic of concern this year, pointing out that it is a likely carcinogen with links to liver and kidney damage after a lifetime of exposure. If the state limits 1,4-dioxane to 1 part per billion and PFOS and PFOA at 10 parts per trillion, the water authority will have to put into service 56 new advanced oxidation process treatments and 20 new granular activated carbon systems. The total cost for all these systems is expected to exceed $177 million over the next five to six years. The $80 yearly charge is expected to cover those costs over time. The water authority services approximately 1.2 million Suffolk residents, including most parts of the North Shore.

Giving Back to the Community Over the past month, students at Harborfields High School have helped to raise awareness on a number of issues affecting the local community and have also dedicated time to giving back. On Nov. 6, members of both the high school’s Global Justice Club and the Harborfields Alliance for

Community Outreach Club took on the challenge of a 24-hour fast to bring awareness to the lack of food security in the local community and beyond. At the conclusion of their fast, the Global Justice Club members hosted a pizza sale to raise money to help stock the local food pantry. On Saturday, Nov. 16, students from the school’s Outreach Club collected food for

several hours outside Greenlawn Farms. Students distributed a list of needed items for the community food pantry, such as snacks, peanut butter, jelly, macaroni and cheese and cereal. The district thanks all members of the Greenlawn community who contributed, as customers were more than generous with their shopping donations!

Residents of the Harborfields Central School District approved Dec. 3 the district’s capital improvement bond referendum with a vote of 1,122 to 590. “On behalf of the entire district, I thank those residents who took the time to vote on the proposal,” said Superintendent of Schools Francesco Ianni. “Through your support, our schools will receive numerous upgrades to enhance infrastructure, security, academic and athletic facilities.” The majority of projects included in the bond referendum are basic infrastructure upgrades such as replacing outdated boilers, repairing cracked sidewalks, improving fresh air intake and replacing deteriorating ceiling and lighting fixtures. Not only have many of these systems exceeded their useful life span, but they are no longer compliant with code. With an increased focus on student and staff safety, a number of security enhancements are also included in the approved proposal, including the construction of security vestibules at every school. Original doors and hardware will also be replaced to enhance building security. Through the community’s support, a number of academic improvements for students will be made, including the renovation of school libraries at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School, Oldfield Middle School and Haborfields High School. The new spaces will provide students with modern environments for group collaboration while using the latest in educational technology. A new general science classroom will also be added at TJL. A number of physical education and athletic enhancements will also be made, such as the construction of a new outdoor play area at Washington Drive Primary School and the renovation of the South Gym and the installation of a synthetic turf field at HHS. “As we move throughout the process of beginning these projects, we will continue to keep our community updated,” said Ianni. “Again, thank you to the community for its support!”

Opinion

Give Well

The season for giving is here, and while North Shore residents plan their holiday feasts, it’s a good time to consider the plight of people less fortunate. Imagine, more than 89,000 children on Long Island are hungry, according to Hauppauge-based Long Island Cares. These children aren’t dreaming of visions of sugarplums, they are wishing for substantial meals to get them and their families through the day. Some centers, such as the Community Food Council on East 5th Street in Huntington Station, are reporting a 33 percent increase in demand over the last three months. It’s unclear why the sudden surge in food insecurities but the food banks are in need of supplies and volunteers, and counting on the local community to find ways to pitch in. So, it’s a good time to develop a plan. When preparing to donate to a food bank, a good rule of thumb is to call the nonprofit or visit its website to see what is needed. During this time of year, many have volunteers on hand to put together holiday meals. Throughout the year, depending on donations, there may be a surplus of one item and a deficit of another. While many may be inclined to reach into their pantry to find nonperishables, a cash donation can often be the most beneficial to nonprofits, so they can turn around and buy food in bulk. This can also save volunteers time, because they don’t need to go through items looking at expiration dates. If one wants to donate food, a trip to the supermarket is the best bet to ensure the donated items aren’t expired. Though if your cabinets are bursting at the seams, reach in and make sure to check expiration dates on cans and boxes. Also, look cans over to ensure they are not dented or leaking and that boxes aren’t damaged. And steer away from food in glass jars as these containers can easily break. Take into consideration more nutritious options, too, such as cereals high in fiber, whole wheat pasta and low sodium soups and vegetables. When it comes to any kind of mixes, remember many households may be out of milk or eggs, so choose a mix that can be used with water. Another thing to consider is purchasing toiletries such as toothpaste, deodorant, diapers and toilet paper. To increase the spirit of giving, organize your local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops or religion classes or get your children involved. Or, if you already know of a group organizing a food drive, contribute your items to the event. Collecting food for those in need is a wonderful way to inspire young ones to help others and it encourages them to continue charitable pursuits when they reach their goals or succeed them. In our coverage area, in addition to Long Island Cares and the Community Food Council, there are the Smithtown Emergency Food Pantry, St. Anthony of Padua R.C. Church in Rocky Point, St. Cuthbert’s Episcopal Church in Selden, Ecumenical Lay Council Pantry through the First Presbyterian Church in Northport, St. Gerard Majella R.C. Church in Port Jefferson Station, Our Daily Bread Food Pantry in Setauket and many more. As the lights come down in a few weeks, remember when it comes to food banks, the hungry keep coming. The spirit of giving can last all year round as these organizations are always in need of donations no matter what month on the calendar. The gift of time, too, is also a generous way to contribute.

Northport School District Should Move to Electric Buses

It was horrifying for parents to discover a school bus fueling station next to Northport Middle School. But instead of moving the depot, or trying to regulate it, why doesn’t the school district do the sensible thing and switch

to an electric fleet? Electric school buses have already been successfully adopted in Copiague and, most recently, in Bay Shore. They are clean, with no greenhouse gas emissions, a bargain in the long run,

with little maintenance and repair and a good faith move for children who are inheriting a world we have nearly ruined for them with global warming. Alexa Marinos North Babylon

in The Federalist Papers. Proper protocol of having a fair and orderly process with bipartisanship and transparency is imperative (sunlight is the best disinfectant). This is not what we see. The Dems are weaponizing impeachment, taking their hatred for Trump and resistance into the House of Representatives. Schiff is running a kangaroo court in the dark. He leaks selective info to push their perspective. It looks like “Trump derangement syndrome” progressed to “Trump insanity syndrome.” It’s pervasive and it’s real. The symptoms display hatred, division and deception, and the media is complicit playing a crucial part of bolstering the antiTrump resistance promoting their weekly repetitious false sound bites. Just think of how crazy this sounds: The media stated that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi [the late ISIS leader] was an austere religious scholar,

and portrayed a 15-year-old boy wearing a MAGA hat as a terrorist. And think, we as taxpayers are paying members of Congress to impeach a president who has accomplished more than any other president in spite of the resistance movement. The Democrats are still trying to undo the 2016 election and affect 2020 because they know the current list of candidates will never beat Trump. This will be the first president to be impeached in the House only and be reelected to do the people’s work. Game over for the media’s political manipulation. It is imperative we fight to maintain the rule of law, regardless of what any of us think about Trump. We have far more to lose than an election. Carol Florio Lisa Pius Old Field

Political Theatrics The Dems are running a mixed up bunch of egos that can’t quite figure out if they should make a sharp left turn, or bear left or stay in the middle, but their policies are revealing delusional ideas that will drive America off of the cliff. What has been persistent is this “resistance” movement that is destroying the core pillars of American institutions. Let the games begin. Speaker Nancy [Pelosi, D-Calif.] continues her cunning political games, but first delegated the dirty work to U.S. Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) in the House Judiciary Committee which resulted in a failed Mueller Report to impeach President Donald Trump (R), and quickly skipped to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) in the House Intelligence Committee. They have crossed all political boundaries breaking rules and standards along the way. The seriousness of impeachment was communicated by Alexander Hamilton

This Play Offers A Lighthearted Respite from Political Headlines

W

hat is it about “The Play That Goes Wrong” that is just so right for so many people, including me? My wife and I recently went to this farcical show, where my wife informed me that she, the couple attending the performance with us, and just about everyone around us could tell how much I enjoyed the experience. In case you haven’t heard about D. None it and can’t figure of the above it out from the tiBY DANIEL DUNAIEF tle, “The Play That Goes Wrong” is an absurd show where everything goes so wrong — the props, the ac-

tors, the staging, the lighting and the music. Indeed, it’s almost challenging to follow the simple murder mystery plot amid gales of laughter, much of it coming from me. My family has numerous qualities that we have shared from one generation to the next. My late father laughed so hard at the pratfalls and theater-of-the-absurd dialogue of Danny Kaye movies like “The Court Jester” (1955) that I can still picture him gasping for air as he wiped away the tears slaloming down his face, where they joined the muddy sneaker stains, the dirty paw prints and the soda spills on a white carpet that chronicled our active lives. The current play follows in the footsteps of Kaye, Benny Hill, the Three Stooges and a host of other characters who do anything for a laugh, stepping on rakes that slam into their heads or interacting in nonsensical ways with other actors as a part of a skit. The show makes the sketch comedy of many of today’s late night shows appear pedestrian by comparison. Granted, the plot follows a

singular theme and, once completed, can and does create a full length and ridiculous drama. Now, some people may find the pedestrian antics of the cast too absurd. I agree that the show isn’t for everyone and doesn’t provide life lessons, memorable songs, gritty entertainment or an insightful view of existence. And yet, it does offer much needed self-parody and perspective on a country thoroughly divided by events in Washington, D.C. The people who run our country seem intent on making their supporters cheer, while their detractors roll their eyes, shake their heads and seek solace from people who share their beliefs. Fine, but, the actors in a show written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields of the Mischief Theatre Company, seem intent on roping as much of the audience as possible into their shenanigans. One of the actors, who plays Cecil Haversham, seems delighted by the presence of the audience. He plays to the crowd so often that he shares

in their enthusiasm when he does something well or when the crowd appreciates an ongoing joke. This intentionally imperfect play isn’t perfectly imperfect, either. Some moments fall flat. The second half of the show, which is shorter than the first, isn’t quite as engaging, entertaining and uproarious. Knowing the general plot of the story before I attended, I tried to anticipate the wide range of possible intentional stumbles and humorous moments that actors struggling to maneuver through a story might endure. The range of mistakes and blunders exceeded my expectations among numerous welcome and delightful surprises. A play that delves in the world of funny gaffes takes real work on the part of the writers and the actors. To anyone sick of the political headlines, the conspiracy theories, the name calling, the accusations and counter accusations, this play is a welcome comedic retreat. It’s no wonder it won Best New Comedy at the 2015 Laurence Olivier Awards in London and is now on Broadway.

Who Will Be No. 1? A Salute to Local Businesses

L

ook for something special in the newspaper and online next week. Earlier in the year, some of you may have noted we ran a contest asking you to write in your favorite business or service on the North Shore by category. We wanted to know your favorite bank, your favorite bakery, favorite hotel, hair salon, nail salon, restaurant, accountant, lawyer and so forth. The entry form, which filled a whole Between page, could only be found in the newsyou and me paper, although we BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF publicized the contest on the web and on our social media platforms as well. But you had to pick up the newspaper in order to vote

for your favorites, and we of course did that on purpose to get you to read the paper, which is today an endangered species. Well, the contest was a big success. We received over 2,500 submissions and we have winners in more than 100 categories, including those that are in ties. We tabulated the answers on our computers and were fascinated by the results. The winners and/or nominators come from as far west as Cold Spring Harbor and Huntington and as far east as Wading River, as well as from Northport, East Northport, Kings Park, Smithtown, St. James, Three Village, Port Jefferson and Port Jefferson Station, Middle Country, Mount Sinai, Miller Place, Rocky Point and Shoreham—our entire North Shore areas of news coverage and distribution. Readers took the time and made the effort to salute their business contacts in this way. We think our readers will benefit from this information, a kind of recommended list of some of the best businesses in Suffolk County, as they do their shopping and meet their needs around town. The “Readers’ Choice” will be

named in their categories in a pullout section next Thursday, in time for holiday shopping. And we know the various winners are proud to have been singled out in this way. It’s pretty special to be No. 1 in customers esteem. It means the businesses, services and professionals have some sort of differential advantage over their competitors, and it gives the winners bragging rights and the spotlight to talk about their newest products even as they thank their customers. We, of course, thank the winners who have chosen additionally to advertise all that information in our supplement — although no ad was required of them — and that is part of the reason for the several weeks of space we devoted to the contest. In so doing, we are following the traditional business model that has always supported news media: Advertisers underwriting news for the readers, even as some of that news is about their products and services. In addition to being named in the supplement, the winners will be invited to a dinner reception at the Three Village Inn in Stony Brook on Wednesday evening, Feb. 5, 2020,

from 6-8 p.m. There will be valet parking, a great help in the event of inclement weather. At the historic inn, they will walk up to the podium on a red carpet, be asked to speak for one minute about their business or profession if they wish, and videoed and photographed as they do so. The videos will then appear on our website and the photographs in our newspapers and social media after the reception. In addition, there will be a drawing for the three gift certificates of $150, $75 and $50 to be used in the winners stores or offices by those who sent in nominations. Tickets to the event may be ordered on our website (tbrnewsmedia.com) after the first of the year, by phone with a credit card (631-751-7744) or by mail (P.O. Box 707, Setauket, NY 11733). In addition to the winners and their guests, we will also invite the customers who nominated their first choices and the general public in what we hope will be a wonderful show of support for local businesses. They are at the core of our communities and today, as we know, they too are an endangered species.
