Declining enrollment creates challenges for school districts BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

TBR NEWS MEDIA

A shadow hangs above the heads of Long Island’s school districts: The specter of declining enrollment. “From last year, not a whole lot has changed, enrollment is still declining,” Barbara Graziano, the manager of the Office of School Planning and Research for Western Suffolk BOCES said. “What a lot of districts are seeing is there is a significant displacement between their graduating classes being larger than the following year’s kindergarten classes.” School enrollment across Suffolk County has been in decline for nearly a decade. In last year’s annual report on enrollment, Western Suffolk BOCES, a regional educational service agency, said there was a 9.1 percent overall decline in enrollment in townships from Huntington to Smithtown from 2010 to 2016. Between the 2006-07 and 2016-17 school years, Long Island saw a 6.2 percent decline in enrollment, according to Robert Lowry, the deputy director for advocacy, research and communications at the New York State Council of School Superintendents. Statewide enrollment declined 4.2 percent in the same period. Nearly every school district on Suffolk County’s North Shore has seen at least some decline, and the trend can have tangible effects on a district’s long- and short-term planning. “Declining enrollment may push a district toward reconsidering staffing and whether it’s necessary to close a school,” Lowry said. Smithtown Central School District in the 2012-13 school year had 10,317 students enrolled in the district, and four years later the number dropped more than a thousand to 9,241 in 2016-17. The declining enrollment was cited in 2012, with guidance from the district’s Citizens’ Advisory Committee on Instruction and Housing, as the rationale behind the closing of Nesconset Elementary

School, and again in 2017 when the district closed Brook Branch Elementary School. “Over the last few years, the board of education and administration have been proactive regarding the district’s declining enrollment,” Smithtown Superintendent James Grossane said in an email. “The district will continue to monitor its enrollment trends to plan for the future.” Experts cite factors like declining birthrate, aging population and changes in local immigration patterns as potentially having an impact on local enrollment. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a report in May indicating the national birthrate in 2017 hit a 30-year low with 60.2 births per 1,000 women between the ages of 15 and 44. The national birthrate has been in general decline since the 1960s, but this most recent report is low even compared to 10 years ago when the birthrate was closer to 70 births per 1,000 women. Suffolk County’s population is also skewing older. Census data from the American Community Survey showed from 2010 to 2016 there was an estimated 28,288 less school-aged children between the ages of 5 and 19 living in the county. School closings are probably the most severe action districts tend to take to mitigate the effect of declining enrollment, but it is not the only option. The Three Village Central School District has seen enrollment drop by about 900 students during the last decade. In its recently passed budget the district said it was making several staffing changes, including consolidating the roles of certain staff members. The district cited declining enrollment along with staff retirements and attrition for the changes, but also promised to add a new high school guidance counselor and an additional district psychologist to give attention to individual student’s mental health. “While our district, like so many others in our area, have recently been experiencing a decline in enrollment, particularly at the elementary level, we have

taken this opportunity to create efficiencies using current staff in order to lower class size and support a number of new initiatives, programmatic enhancements and student support services,” Cheryl Pedisich, the superintendent for Three Village schools said in an email. Kings Park Superintendent Timothy Eagen said lower enrollment allows for smaller class sizes and for more attention to the mental health of individual students. “Our students today need a little bit more mental health support than students yesterday,” Eagen said. “Obviously we don’t need as many elementary sections, but we haven’t necessarily decreased our total staffing amount because we’ve been increasing our mental health supports.” Even with those potential benefits, many districts are still trying to work out the long-term implications of lower enrollment. Al Marlin, a spokesperson for the New York State School Boards Association said enrollment has a large effect on how much state aid a school can procure. “Declining enrollment affects school districts in several ways — perhaps most importantly through the impact on state aid because New York’s school-aid distribution formula is based, in part, on enrollment numbers,” Marlin said in an email. “Declining enrollment also can make it more difficult for districts to sustain academic courses, including Advanced Placement courses and programs such as sports teams.” Shoreham-Wading River school district conducted an enrollment study in 2015 that was updated for the 2017-18 school year. The study predicted the district will recede to 1,650 enrolled students by 2025, compared to 2,170 as of May. Along with a declining birthrate and an aging population, the district pointed

to low housing turnover from 2008 to 2016 for part of the declining enrollment. “It is difficult to predict the exact number, but it is fair to say that the enrollment decline in the district will be continuing in the near future,” SWR superintendent Gerard Poole said in an email. Superintendents from SWR and Rocky Point school district both said they do not have any plans to close schools, but there is a possibility lower enrollment could affect the districts’ ability to apply for grants. A few districts are breaking the trend. Huntington Union Free School District has actually seen an increase in school enrollment from 2012 to 2017, but Superintendent James Polansky said in the most recent years that increase has started to level off. Polansky did not want to speculate as to why enrollment in Huntington was not decreasing like other districts, but Graziano said it might be because the district is more diverse and attracts more immigration than nearby districts. “Every district is different, they have to look at their own schools and communities to see how they deal with enrollment,” Polansky said. Every year Western Suffolk BOCES releases a report that looks at schools’ current enrollment and compares it to previous years. Graziano, who is working on this year’s report, most likely to be released sometime this month, said the agency expects a continuing decline in school enrollment at least for the next several years. Though eventually, she said, the declining enrollment should level off as entering kindergarten class sizes stabilize. However, there is no telling when that might be. “Birthrates do not seem to be increasing, it doesn’t look like, as of right now, that’s going to turn around any time soon,” Graziano said. “But of course, we don’t have a crystal ball.”

COMMUNITY NEWS Middle Country Central School District MIDDLE COUNTRY SCHOOL DISTRICT

Elementary students face off in STEM challenge Middle Country Central School District hosted its 4th annual STEM Celebration — welcoming the community to support students from each elementary school as they competed in various science, technology, engineering and mathematics challenges. The event opened with various STEM activities for all community members to try, including building a LEGO tower. Each of the district’s eight elementary schools received grade-specific LEGO engineering and NAO Robotics programming

challenges in October and worked to perfect their models leading up to the event. The students’ hard work culminated with presentations of their creations to a panel of expert judges from the fields of technology, engineering, architecture, business and education. Kindergarten students also took part in a DUPLO engineering challenge, the results of which were presented in video feed throughout the evening. High school and middle school science research students were also in attendance to

present projects. They were joined by members of the middle and high school robotics competition teams who were demonstrating their award-winning robots. After the LEGO competition, students participated in the on-demand problemsolving competition, during which students

had to think on their feet, using materials to solve a given problem. Teams had 10 minutes to process the challenge, engineer a solution and build a prototype before being scored. Hawkins Path Elementary School was named the Middle Country Central School District Elementary STEM School of the Year.

Sound Beach animal rescue group helps save 27 bunnies Volunteers hopped to save nearly 30 domestic rabbits that were left alone and abandoned in a tick and poison ivy infected stretch of forest last week in Ronkonkoma. Smithtown-based nonprofit Guardians of Rescue received a tip about illegally released rabbits and reached out to local animal rescue groups for help. Volunteers spent close to two full days, May 27 and 28, capturing 27 rabbits that had been marooned in a forest near the Ronkonkoma train station commuter parking lot. One was found dead in the forest and another died while receiving care. “These particular rabbit breeds were not suited for the wild,” said Robert Misseri, president of Guardians of Rescue. “There is no telling how long they would have lasted, but it would have not been long.” Misseri said he put the call out to several local animal rescue groups including the Sound Beach-based nonprofit Strong Island Animal Rescue League. The first rabbit that Erica Kutzing, vice president for the Strong Island rescue group, saw when she arrived at the forest was larger than any wild rabbit should have been. It was a Flemish Giant, a breed of rabbit known for being extremely calm. Kutzing got down to its level and laid out rabbit feed in a line and the rabbit loped toward her. Frankie Floridia, the president of Strong Island rescue, flashed out a net from behind her and caught the rabbit.

Erica Kutzing coaxes toward her one of 27 bunnies that were abandoned in the woods. Kutzing held it as she brought it back to their car. She said it was nearly as big as a small dog. “Whoever abandoned those rabbits should be ashamed,” Floridia said. “They were giving those rabbits a death sentence.” Many of the rabbits they found were of different breeds including Lionheads and Flemish Giants. Some had interbred with each other, which makes the rescue groups believe the animals were held together in cages. “Black ones, white ones, gray, brown, there were all different kinds,” Kutzing said. “It was like shopping at Macy’s, you could get any color you wanted.” Misseri said he suspects the person who

abandoned the rabbits had been breeding them. Many were sick with pneumonia. Others were injured by the cage they were kept in and the rabbits they were caged with, according to Misseri. Several had cysts and many were suffering from malnourishment. The first captured is currently being nursed back to health, and was given the name André the Giant after the famous French wrestler and actor. “Once we caught him we were running through the woods — it was just net after net after net,” Kutzing said. “And you have to be careful picking these guys up because if they kick strong enough they’ll break their backs, if they get too frightened they can have a heart

attack. They have paper-thin skin so if you handle them wrong you can tear the skin.” The rabbits have been sent out to multiple animal rescue operations in the surrounding area. Six were taken in by Guardiansof Rescue, but all have already been fostered out. Several were taken in by Long Island Orchestrating for Nature from Malverne, the Connecticutbased Hopalong Hollow Rabbit Rescue and Queens-based All About Rabbits Rescue. The Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has put out a $3,500 reward for a person who leads them and authorities to the person who abandoned the animals. Several local animal rescue groups donated money toward that reward, namely Guardians of Rescue, Strong Island Animal Rescue League and Long Island Orchestrating for Nature, who put up $500 each, while the SPCA and All About Rabbits Rescue put up $1,000 each. “We at the SPCA take this very seriously, especially in cases of abandonment like this,” Suffolk SPCA President Roy Gross said. “This is a case of abandonment and animal cruelty, and so the person or persons involved in this are up for criminal charges. All that person had to do was to pick up a phone, call any of these organizations and we would have found a home for them, but instead he abandoned them.” To foster any of the remaining rabits, call Guardians of Rescue at 888-287-3864. The SPCA said that any tips about the person who abandoned the rabbits can be sent to their phone number 631-382-7722.

BY DESIRÉE KEEGAN DESIREE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM A Coram man who allegedly fired a rifle at a group of people in Middle Island Friday and fled the state was found dead of a gunshot wound after a confrontation with New Jersey State Police, authorities said. Suffolk County Police 6th Squad detectives first reported that Todd Gregory, 47, of Coram, was in a white 2006 GMC pickup truck when he fired a rifle at a small group of people standing in front of 27 Half Mile Road at around 6:40 p.m. June 8. The bullet went through the rear window of a parked vehicle, and a 15-year-old boy, standing behind the vehicle, was struck in the chest and arm by small pieces of flying debris caused by the bullet. Gregory, who was known to the group, fled the scene in the GMC. The boy was transported to Stony Brook University Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and released. Detectives determined that Gregory was

possibly suicidal and may have been fleeing the state. Detectives notified Nassau County Police, New York City Police, New York State Troopers, New Jersey and Pennsylvania state police of the vehicle description, possible destination and that Gregory was armed and dangerous and possibly suicidal. New Jersey state troopers attempted to stop the pickup in Knowlton Township and pursued it to Old Mine Road in Hardwick, where they lost the truck, attorney general officials said. Police found the pickup in a secluded area at about 11:30 p.m. and attempted to walk toward the truck when they heard a single gunshot from inside the vehicle, officials said. One trooper fired multiple rounds into the truck, where Gregory was found dead, attorney general’s officials said. Police recovered two rifles from the truck, officials said. No troopers were injured. The New Jersey Attorney General’s Shooting Response Team said Gregory went to the home to harass a man from a previous dispute and his family.

COUNTY

SCPD: Opioid-related deaths trending down in 2018 BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Suffolk County’s police department has new numbers to get excited about. Despite being less than halfway through the year, the police department and medical examiner’s office report the county is on trend to see a nearly 100-person decrease in opioid-related deaths in 2018, compared to the last two. Chief of Detectives Gerard Gigante and Chief Medical Examiner Michael Caplan confirmed at the May 31 Suffolk County Legislature’s health committee meeting that if numbers remain low through June and July, Suffolk might see overdose deaths drop to 2015 levels — 260 total — compared to 2016 and 2017, where there were 362 and 359, respectively. “It feels like we’re making headway,” Gigante said. “Like we’re getting somewhere.” The total number of opioid deaths for this year is 120 as of May 1, which includes 78 cases still pending, in which the medical examiner could not yet attribute the overdose to causing the victim’s death. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 64,000 people nationwide died from drug overdoses in 2016. Caplan said Suffolk mirrors the national statistic that approximately 80 percent of all drug overdoses are caused by opioids. Gigante attributed the decrease to large-scale drug busts, like the arrest of six people involved in a Brookhaven-based drug ring in Middle Island in March. In the last few years the number of

overdoses involving prescription drugs has decreased, according to Caplan, while those involving illegal and nonprescription substances have increased. “[2011] was the peak of where prescription medications like oxycodone were our biggest problem,” the medical examiner said. “We saw the trend going away from prescription opioids and to semisynthetic opioids like heroin and fentanyl.” Members of the health committee said the trend down is uplifting. “We’re amazed,” Legislator William

“Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport) said. “These numbers are nearly 10-fold less than previous years.” Gigante also spoke during the meeting about the department’s High Intensity Drug Tracking Area system, which maps overdose detections in real time for police officers out in the field. SCPD members can report the location, time and other details of an overdose, which is used to determine where to concentrate resources. The police department used the system to map 13 opioid overdoses Memorial Day

weekend, three of which were fatal. This is compared to last year’s Memorial Day weekend where nine of 40 reports resulted in a fatality. The numbers reflected in the statistics do not account for people who drive themselves to hospitals, but Gigante said he hopes to get medical institutions involved in reporting those numbers too. “If we can override June and July then we will really start to see the ratio decrease,” Gigante said. “I’m cautiously optimistic we can turn that corner.”

Sheriff’s office passing out free drug, alcohol testing kits BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

‘This is a oncein-a-lifetime moment, but please be responsible in your actions.’

Local schools have long tried to curb drug and alcohol use at prom while still trying to ensure graduating classes celebrate the final days before graduation. Frank Pugliese said in his first year as principal of Shoreham-Wading River High School, he hopes his students can enjoy prom while staying safe. “We strongly advise all students to always make appropriate decisions,” Pugliese said in an email. “With that being said, we have great students. The vast majority make smart choices regardless of the policies in place, and we trust that they will continue to do so on prom night.” Smithtown High School West participates in the county District Attorney’s Office new Choices and Consequences program that shows the dangers of reckless and drunk driving. Members of the DA’s office will be in the high school June 18. In a letter to students, Smithtown West High School Principal John Coady said anyone caught drinking during prom will be suspended and kicked out. Prom tickets will not be refunded, and the student may be barred from the graduation ceremony. Fifty alcohol and 25 drug testing kits were sent out to numerous schools to kick off the program. The kits are also available free at each Suffolk County legislator’s office and will remain offered through

Clockwise from top left; attendee Max Starke builds with LEGO brick; Assemblyman Steve Englebright presents a resolution to Angeline Judex, executive director of the Long Island Explorium; visitors observe LEGO robots in action; and the Saber Guild battles.

Maker Faire wows in PJ BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM People arriving to this year’s Eastern Long Island Mini Maker Faire in Port Jefferson June 9 were greeted by robed Jedis from the Long Island Saber Guild flourishing their lightsabers and a trueto-scale Hulkbuster costume as if straight from the screen of the recent “Avengers: Infinity War” movie. It was just the start to a day filled with the strange and the unique as makers from all across Long Island and beyond showed off their inventions and skills to interested guests. The annual event, hosted by the nonprofit Long Island Explorium, is a celebration of doers, dabblers or anybody who uses their own sweat, blood and tears to create or build something, even if it’s a little off the wall. New to this year’s fair was the Long Island Vegetable Orchestra, which used hollowed out carrots, gourds and cucumbers to play songs, such as the Beatles’ hit “Hey Jude.” Several robotics teams from high schools across the county showed off creations, from LEGO MINDSTORMS robots that can stop and reverse if they sense an obstruction in front of them to a huge shirt cannon from

Smithtown High School’s Mechanical Bulls robotics team that fired T-shirts from the Port Jefferson Village Center all the way into Harborfront Park. New York State Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket) presented the Explorium with a resolution commending its work in producing the event. At the same time three volunteers who worked with the Explorium on the event received the Presidential Volunteer Service Award for their work in the Explorium’s museum. One of those young men, fourth-grader Greyson West, received the bronze reward for working between 26 and 49 hours at the museum. “We earned the award by our age group and how many hours we participated in volunteering at the museum,” Greyson said. “It feels pretty good to receive it.” An organizer of the event commended Greyson’s hard work. “They work with the children, they worked with the community,” Carole Van-Duyn, the Explorium’s museum program director said. “Our volunteers taught and engaged with the kids in several events and Greyson helped make it a great experience.”

SPORTS MIDDLE COUNTRY SCHOOL DISTRICT

BY DESIRÉE KEEGAN DESIREE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Middle Country’s seniors have shown the strength, determination and dedication to achieve greatness, and now they have the success to prove it was all worth it. After undergoing six brain surgeries and having a shunt put into her skull to help her manage an incurable disease, Lexi Roth hit the ground running. She helped Middle Country’s 4×400-meter relay team cross the finish line a fraction of a second behind first at the Division I state championships last weekend. The girls clocked in second among Division I schools in 3 minutes, 52.92 seconds. Rush-Henrietta Senior High School finished in 3:52.52. The quartet, which also includes seniors Dana Cerbone and Maritza Blanchard and sophomore Jessica Faustin, placed fourth among all schools during the June 8 and 9 meet at Cicero-North Syracuse High School. “That group especially had an immense amount of talent and the work ethic that goes along with that, so I’m not surprised they got where they got to,” said former coach Matt Torres, who worked with the seniors their first two years. “Jessica, being the young one, works incredibly hard. She has some great leaders in front of her.” Cerbone is about five feet tall, but Torres said you wouldn’t know it. She placed fourth among Division I athletes in the 200 dash (24.94) and fourth overall (25.33).

“Girls tower over her, but she has a bulldog-type mentality,” he said. “It wasn’t just practice, it was after practice that she would want to do more to see if she could get even just a little bit better. She’d push to have that edge, get in the weight room.” He said none of the athletes would stop between seasons. They showed a desire to remain in shape and continue to try to take their talents to the next level. “Maritza was always on the brink of being great, and I think coach Cuzzo really helped push her toward that,” he said. Blanchard also brought home an additional medal with a third-place overall finish in the 400 dash. She crossed the finish line in 56.78. She ranked fifth among Division I schools (57.39) and bounced back to have a better showing in day two. “Everything is moving in the right direction,” two-year spring track and field coach Charley Cuzzo said. “I’m very proud of how the kids ran. What they’ve been able to do is quite an accomplishment. They were ready to go, and they proved it.” The quartet came out of nowhere and shot right up to the top. The girls were ranked No. 1 in the state prior to the meet. Cuzzo said they’ve made improvements that are impressive, and ones that the seniors will take with them to the collegiate level. “They haven’t gotten there by accident,” Torres said. “They got there by how hard they work.

This memorial service

brought everyone to their feet. In the 70s, she loved to go dancing. So we helped her plan ahead for a memorial service that no one would forget—right down to the disco ball.

SPORTS BILL LANDON

Clockwise from left, Kyle Johnson fires a pitch from the mound; Bobby Vath connects with a pitch; Vath tosses a heater; and Johnson swings away.

Newfield pitchers provide during prospects game BY BILL LANDON A two-run eighth inning helped Nassau County tie the game and earn the wouldbe go-ahead run over Suffolk in a 5-4 Blue Chip Prospect Grand Slam Challenge win June 8 at St. Joseph’s College. With the game tied 3-3, Garden City’s Mike Handal’s RBI gave Nassau the lead, and a Suffolk error brought in the eventual game-winning run in the 14th annual game sponsored by Rawlings, proceeds from which will benefit the Cohen Children’s Northwell Health Physician Partners Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics center in New Hyde Park. St. John the Baptist catcher Logan O’Hoppe hit the ball deep to right, which scored Rocky Point pitcher and outfielder Joe Grillo from second, but Locust Valley’s Thomas Eletto forced a groundout with two runners on to earn the save.

Nassau 5 Suffolk 4

“It was a lot of fun playing tonight with all these kids,” said Ward Melville second baseman Logan Doran, who committed to Division I George Washington University. “I’m excited about competitive baseball. I’m ready to go.” Doran proved that when he cleanly fielded a ball rocketed in the dirt, and passed it to short stop Kyle Johnson who turned a double play with bases loaded to retire the side and keep Suffolk up 1-0 in the second. Johnson, who will continue his baseball career with Stony Brook University, said he’s been in awe of all the effort and commitment that goes into putting together the event for senior elites. “This game’s awesome — Blue Chip; Jim Clark, who put this together years ago — it shows how [talented] Long Island is,” the soon-to-be Newfield grad said. “You’ve seen the guys this year that got drafted and a lot of those guys played in this game, so it’s an honor to be out here.” Suffolk made it a two-run lead in the top of the third when West Islip outfielder Jake Guercio crossed home plate for the second time. And Suffolk’s hitting didn’t stop there. Johnson stole second just ahead of a tag with Brentwood’s Justin Aviles in the batter’s box, but Aviles’ grounder toward third was thrown home in time to get Doran for the second out. Grillo smacked the ball deep to right next to load the bases, but Suffolk couldn’t capitalize on the chance. Plainview JFK’s Ryan Saltzman hit a sacrifice fly to put Nassau on the board in the bottom of the inning, and Plainedge’s Jason Bottari did the same to make it a new game. With no outs in the fourth, Newfield pitcher Bobby Vath hit into a double play, but Sayville’s Jake Russo raced home from third in time to help Suffolk retake the lead. The team looked to build on its lead

in the top of the fifth when Mount Sinai third baseman George Rainer took four consecutive pitches at the plate to draw a walk, but two straight strikeouts ended the inning. “It’s a great feeling to be playing with the best players on Long Island — I really enjoyed it,” said Rainer, who signed a letter of intent to play at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. “It was a great day to end my varsity baseball career. I had a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see what college has in store.” Harborfields pitcher Gavin Buda, the

only athlete chosen to play in both Blue Chip Prospects games — the Grand Slam Challenge and Empire Challenge football game — took over the mound in the bottom of the fifth and retired the side in order. “It’s a huge honor to be chosen [for both],” said the Hobart and William Smith Colleges-bound wide receiver. “When you look at a school like Harborfields we’re always underrated and under the radar, so to be nominated to play in these games and represent this school is amazing.” View more photos from Blue Chip Prospects Grand Slam Challenge at www.tbrnewsmedia.com.

A thank you on dad’s day We know what Viloria-Fisher will do Rita J. Egan: Sometimes we can learn from others’ battles especially when they are honest about them. Those who knew my father say I’m the spitting image of him. I’m tall and thin just like him, and even though he wasn’t part of my life for a long time, I have some of his mannerisms. But my father’s wish was that I wouldn’t be like him when it came to his love for alcohol. He spent the last 20 years of his life sober, but it was a battle. As the one who usually is drinking a soda or water at the bar, I am proof that wishes do come true. I learned not from his examples but from his mistakes, simply because he was honest about his weaknesses. So, this Father’s Day, I will raise a glass of Coca-Cola to my dad and thank him for his honesty and wish for me. Desirée Keegan: This is to the opening of your heart and the softening of those red walls that fought so long to be as strong as possible. I never needed you to be, but through action, you did teach me. This is to the shaping of a new person out of the mistakes and life lessons, the pitfalls and the glorious victories. This is to the one who through sacrificing time and energy, through hard work and commitment, even learning, sometimes, along with me, showed me what real strength is. The world-shaking realization that real strength lives in vulnerability and stoicism doesn’t fit quite as well as unharnessed passion and the colors of a heart worn on a sleeve. This is to the one that adopted a silly voice and character and threw themselves into folly for the chance at a smile on their children’s lips. It’s in the trying that’s the loving and it’s in the failure that’s the triumph. This is to you, mom, because every Father’s Day I’m reminded that you’re all I’ve ever needed. You, as you are now, have always been more than enough. Alex Petroski: Some of the best times I’ve had with my dad are when we argue. To most that probably sounds weird. We’re both opinionated and have consumed enough talking head television between the two of us to always be loaded with a hot take. Usually it’s about sports, but we can find a way to argue about anything. To bystanders, like my mom, this might seem unhealthy, but maybe he and I are the only ones who get it. The fact that my dad, who I and my peers consider to be a human encyclopedia, will engage in a conversation and on any topic, even if we don’t agree, makes me proud, and I wouldn’t trade those lively discussions for boring agreements. Dad, I’m going to convince you one day; LeBron is better than Jordan. Sara-Megan Walsh: Dad, I appreciate all the little things you’ve done over the years. Like handing me 75 cents to buy a snack with lunch in third grade, even if it meant you went without coffee that morning. To making those 7-Eleven Slurpee runs in the summer that we never told Mom about. When I grew older and went off to college, your love showed when offering to drive me four hours each way to Massachusetts, so I could spend a weekend at home. Then, you’d always still offer to purchase breakfast for me and my dorm mates when dropping me off. These days, you send me text messages asking if I’m safe at home during storms and reminders of family birthdays. You’ve always put me first and made sure I’m taken care of, and I couldn’t ask for more Kyle Barr: Dad, I think as we all grow older we grow bigger. And that’s okay. Our hearts grow bigger too. We’re able to take more empathy in to fill that ever-growing pocket inside our hearts. As adults we can come to understand each other in a way that a child couldn’t. That’s the problem with childhood. A child’s heart is like a fountain, and everything it takes in, it spills out in one great continuous cycle. I think kids don’t know how important family is until they’re older. That’s what I want you to know, that I know you think our family is important, that even as you spend long days working, know that I know why you do it, and know I couldn’t thank you enough.

important and is resolute about standing up for opportunities of improved quality of life in a safe and just society. Democrats hear a lot about the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and the standards necessary to ensure a “win.” Here is what we think these letters could and should stand for: D is for a confirmed Democrat; C is for character, a truth teller; the second C is for capable with relevant experience, and the final C is for committed as an unrelenting hard worker, even in the face of opposition. These qualities describe Vivian Viloria-Fisher, our choice for New York’s 1st Congressional District representative. Many respond to the more than a hundred volunteers

knocking on local doors for Vivian with, “Oh, yes, we know Vivian, she taught our son,” or “Our daughters played softball together and we’ll be voting for her.” Jonathan Kornreich, at a recent Three Village Democratic Club meeting, spontaneously declared his support for Vivian, calling out, “She’s the real deal.” And our two presently serving local elected officials, Kara Hahn and Valerie Cartright, both of whom were earlier mentored by Vivian, have come out for her. Those of us who support Vivian ViloriaFisher are reassured that we know what she will do because we know what she has done.

It’s wrong to attack Zeldin for dealing with Bannon Letters to the editor should have to contain facts and not unsubstantiated innuendo. Especially ones that purport to represent effrontery to Jewish values, like the June 7 letter to the editor by [Rabbi Emeritus] Adam Fisher entitled “Political dealings with Bannon a mark against Zeldin.” And, that the letter says that Congressman Lee Zeldin does not have the right to celebrate Jewish American Heritage is so outlandish that it raises a much larger question as to motive. Congressman Lee

Zeldin is a Jewish-American military veteran, served in Iraq with the 82nd Airborne, served as a major in the Army Reserve, is an attorney and member of the New York State Bar and who was elected to and now serves in the United States Congress, one of the highest elected officials in our country. If that is not worthy of accolade, then I don’t know what values your letter writer is a subscriber to. I for one, as a Jewish-American, would like not to be told what my values are by people

who should know better than to assert their opinions on others. Or worse, people who try to incite their personal political interests from their positions of religious belief and authority. It’s a clear violation of some very needed separations of church and state. That you placed this letter next to your Opinion Editorial makes me question, I know who wrote the letter, who on your staff wrote the headline for it?

Michael Sheinkopf Port Jefferson

Today’s children are being coddled Dear publisher, I have never read a letter or heard a person speak in such an objective manner as you expressed in your May 31 column entitled “Dumbing down America as graduation approaches.” For the first time in my life I felt that the Pope and I had lost the power of infallibility. I say this with tongue in cheek as humor and do agree that your words were flawless in truth.

Our children today are coddled to such a degree that they now dictate in so many social ways to family structure. It is a far cry from the days of “Andy Hardy.” Parents today have become victims of a progressive movement that is presently changing the very character of families. Many moral families have lost values that no longer exist. To realize this phenomenon in this manner becomes

a matter of requirement in age over 50. We are now in transition alien to the culture that we were once founded on. The very soul of our nation is the family. Our structure is now in change. Once accomplished, we shall no longer be the republic for which it stands. God bless America.

The exquisite agony of waiting

I

t happens everywhere, all day long. There isn’t a moment in any day when someone, somewhere isn’t waiting for something. They might be looking at a protruding stomach waiting for their baby’s birth or standing in line waiting to order lunch. They might even be staring at a phone waiting for a return text message while the three moving dots suggest someone is typing, waiting for commercials to end to see whether the contestants won on a game show By Daniel Dunaief — or waiting for word from a school of choice. I have a friend who is writhing through the exquisite agony of the school wait-list.

D. None of the above

He tries to think about other things, like the exams he has this week, the fate of his beloved baseball team in a game or the plans for his long-awaited summer. To his credit, my friend has allowed himself to stop thinking about the school decision over which he has no control at this point. Well, most of the time. He’d like to pick up the phone, call the school and ask, as politely as possible, if he got in today. When we’re younger, we struggle with the wait of a coming birthday, Christmas, Hanukkah or a vacation. We check the calendar months in advance, planning a party, considering the invitation list, ordering food we may barely taste because we’re so preoccupied playing with our friends that day. In the days that lead up to the birthday, the clock drags, slowed down by our desire to get to Friday. The night before children receive numerous presents during a holiday, sleep evades them, as they wonder

what’s wrapped and ready the next morning. If we’re lucky, birthdays and holidays are almost guaranteed to bring presents, even if the bike isn’t the right color or the sweater doesn’t fit. Those waits are more like yield signs on a highway, where we know, eventually, we’ll merge onto our preferred roadway. To continue with the road analogy, what if the wait is like a yellow light and the next step is a red light? If the light turns red — in this case, the school calls to share their disappointment that the person won’t be able to attend — does my friend wish he could go back in time to the waiting period, where a “yes” was still a possibility? Is not knowing our fate more difficult than receiving a definitive answer? It depends on whom you ask. For some people, the notion of waiting for some kind of resolution is far worse than solid information. They move on with their lives once they hear the news.

For others, the wait allows them to play emotional ping-pong, throwing themselves from one side of a possibility to the other. The resolution can make them feel as if the game with themselves has ended, requiring that they make new decisions with new wait times. While people wait, they often look for signs. If a school stays in touch, maybe that means he is closer to getting in. If a light turns green just as he arrives at the intersection, maybe that also means good news is coming. We wait for so much: For someone to call on us when we raise our hand, for someone we like to pay attention to us, for a doctor to “see us now” and for the opportunity to do something extraordinary. Given how much of our lives involve waiting, you’d think we’d be experts at it. And yet, every so often, we hold our breath and hope the delay is only temporary, making the next step — or the next wait — that much sweeter.

masterpiece to the salivating family gathered around the kitchen table. I always tried to sleep in on Sundays, but the marvelous smells that filled the apartment unfailingly coaxed me out of bed. Only my mother was impervious and slept through the ruckus of our trying to identify the ingredients as we ate. My dad would then take us out to the park — Central Park that is — and we would roam over hills and dells, always yodeling in the many tunnels along the pathways. The echoes were hugely satisfying. He would set a rock on top of a boulder, give us each five small stones, and ask us to knock the rock off the boulder from 10 paces. We’d have a vague destination within the park each Sunday, anywhere from the carousel to the rowboat lake, to Shakespeare Garden to Sheep Meadow with its multitude of baseball games in progress. He was good at pitching horseshoes, and as we strolled by the quoits section the men would offer him a turn. If we had thought to bring a basketball, we might shoot

some baskets on the courts. When the weather was bad, we would wander through the Metropolitan Museum. Wherever we went, regulars in the park usually recognized us because my younger sister had Down syndrome, a condition that was almost never seen in public places. We stood out, I guess, and my sister, who loved to watch the baseball games and came to know some of the adult players by name, would cheer loudly with each solid hit. As the day wore on, my dad would buy a box of Cracker Jacks from a park vendor and we would share the contents. By the end of the afternoon, we would head to a predetermined grove of trees where my mother would be waiting on a blanket with supper. I remember how happy my parents were to see each other — you would have thought they had been separated for weeks. Maybe it was just the prospect of some homemade dinner that sealed the day with joy for all of us.

A playful dad remembered

W

hen I think of my dad, I am reminded almost immediately of his loving nature and his playfulness. Now many dads I have met behave lovingly toward their families, so that is not what set mine apart. It was the other half of my description: His instant readiness to play and his aptitude for making up games on the spot. My dad was an ambitious businessman, and he worked long hours every week. But Sundays were his day to relax and his unconstrained self would By Leah S. Dunaief emerge. No wonder Sundays were my favorite day. He would begin the morning by getting up somewhere before 6 a.m., and start rustling around in the kitchen. The son of a farmer, he got up early all his

childhood, and just because he moved to the city in his teens he wasn’t about to change the diurnal cycle that had been hardwired into him. He was one of nine children and referred to himself when he was growing up as “Middle Child.” To hear his siblings tell of him, he was the one who routinely organized the pack into daily games in between their farm and school chores. Isolated on a large farm from other children and certainly without any municipal playgrounds in their lives, they created their own fun. That skill served him well not only for us, his children, but for the entire neighborhood. He was the undisputed Pied Piper wherever we were on any given Sunday. Sundays belonged to my mother. My dad made sure of that. He would concoct a huge breakfast that was never the same from one week to the next. Into a dozen eggs, he would toss whatever leftovers he could find from the fridge, cook the mixture slowly with generous amounts of onions and other veggies and “mystery spices” and present the
