Those brave enough to dive into the icy waters of Long Island Sound for charity will have a second chance this weekend. The Smithtown Historical Society has rescheduled its annual Polar Bear Plunge to 10 a.m., Jan. 14 at Long Beach in Smithtown. The event is supported by both the Smithtown Parks department and Nissequogue Fire Department. The organization was forced to postpone the fundraiser, which was originally scheduled for Jan. 7, due to “inclement weather,”
according to press statements. Other similar events scheduled for Northport and Centerport were also postponed due to a buildup of ice on beach fronts during the cold snap. Registration for the event is $25. All proceeds will be used to support educational programs run by Smithtown Historical Society.

Lohmann appointed to fill Wehrheim’s empty seat By Kevin Redding firstname.lastname@example.org In Smithtown, a new year brings with it new chances. Almost two months after Tom Lohmann (C) was trounced in the race for Smithtown Town Board, the former New York City Police Department member was sworn in to fill the vacant council seat left by new supervisor, Ed Wehrheim (R). Lohmann, 60, a special investigator for the Suffolk district attorney, came in sixth place receiving 9.31 percent of the votes as candidate on the Conservative ticket Nov. 7. He was appointed councilman at the Jan. 9 town board meeting. His appointment officially took effect Jan. 10, and he will serve through Dec. 31. Lohmann will need to campaign in November if he wishes to fill the remaining year of Wehrheim’s term through December 2019. “I wasn’t expecting this,” Lohmann said of his appointment by Wehrheim, rumblings of which were heard at the end of December. “It’s a big privilege and I’m honored that the board saw fit to give me this opportunity. Over the next 11 months, the people in this town will see the type of person that I am — my word is my bond and I look forward to working for the people in this community.” Lohmann said he intends to make good on his campaign promises to revise and update
Smithtown’s “antiquated” code and redevelop a comprehensive master plan to include all hamlets, in consultation with civic groups and local businesses, to create a better, more transparent government. During the campaign, he said he would like to start up quarterly community meetings in different hamlets so town officials could sit with residents to gauge their concerns and get feedback. He will also be the only town councilmember from Smithtown as the others reside in St. James and Kings Park. During the meeting, three members of the board — Wehrheim, Lisa Inzerillo (R) and Thomas McCarthy (R) — voted to appoint Lohmann with councilman Lynn Nowick (R) abstaining. Nowick said she wanted an opportunity to vet all the interested parties for the position and hear community input before making her decision. The town board had about four résumés for the council seat to review, Wehrheim said. “I would like to have had a longer, more thorough vetting process,” Nowick said. “I wanted to first hear the public possibly at this meeting or the second meeting this month, because I answer to them. But I have no problem with Mr. Lohmann. We’ll work together fine.” Many residents took to the podium to confront Wehrheim and the rest of the board about their decision to appoint Lohmann instead of Democratic candidate Amy Fortunato. Fortunato placed third in the general election, behind the two
incumbents in the election with 17.60 percent of the votes. “Amy received almost double the amount of votes as Mr. Lohmann,” said Maria LaMalfa, a Smithtown resident of 33 years. “We have 23,000 Democrats, 35,000 Republicans and 2,000 minor party registered voters and we all want the same things in our town. I think the way to accomplish what we want is to work together as a coalition. We have not had that in all the years I’ve lived here.” Another resident, Elizabeth Isabella, echoed these concerns. “I hope in the future we can dialogue across party lines and I want you to know I do congratulate you, but I am very disappointed that Amy’s votes were not taken into consideration,” Isabella said. “And I do wonder what the conversation was as you made your decision.” Wehrheim pointed out that two major appointments made to the Conservation Board made earlier in the meeting were given to Democrats. “We do intend to work across party lines,” Wehrheim responded. Following the meeting, the new supervisor further defended his decision to bring Lohmann aboard, claiming he was a perfect fit for the board. “We needed to find someone who is thinking the way we’re thinking moving forward so the government can be cohesive

Tom Lohmann was appointed to serve on Smithtown Town Board Jan. 9. and all on the same page,” Wehrheim said. “I also believe there’s a distinct advantage of having someone on this board with a law enforcement background. I think he’ll be an asset when it comes to interacting with [police] and dealing with the opioid epidemic.”

TOWN Phase one of St. James revitalization set for May BY KEVIN REDDING KEVIN@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM With an eye toward a renovated downtown St. James by the end of the year, the Smithtown board recently issued a bond for $2.3 million to begin phase one of the project this May — replacing the hamlet’s decadesold water mains. The bond set forth by the St. James Water District was unanimously approved by town council members during its board of water commissioners meeting Jan. 9. It is the first step toward the reconstruction of the St. James business district — a project spearheaded by councilman Tom McCarthy (R) that was approved in May 2017. The project aims to revitalize approximately 4,300 feet of the Lake Avenue business district, from Moriches Road to Woodlawn Avenue. McCarthy said once the water mains are completed, hopefully in July, construction on the business corridor will start up. The plans call for the restoration of sidewalks and installation of new street trees and lights, curbs, concrete gutters and crosswalks, driveway aprons, asphalt, benches and other decorative amenities. This second phase will cost roughly $2.4 million, which the councilman said will be pulled from Smithtown’s general budget. A bid will be awarded to an outside construction company in the next 90 days.

Mario Mattera, of St. James pictured at left, thanks Smithtown officials for issuing a bond for St. James revitalization. “Everything’s coming along perfectly,” McCarthy said. The councilman, who is working with the town’s traffic, engineering, highway and planning departments, said he hopes to turn Lake Avenue into a vibrant, focal point of the St. James community by improving business activity in the downtown area and encouraging private investment in adjacent properties. “It’s about time we step up to the plate, swing the bat and make St. James village and all our other villages the light of Suffolk County,” McCarthy said during a May 2017 work session where the project was adopted in a 3-2 vote. “I think we have to lead the way
for the community to fix our infrastructure that’s aged and decrepit and if we don’t, then shame on us.” While the process has been moving along slowly but surely, according to Councilwoman Lynne Nowick (R), the town has spent the months leading up to this meeting coordinating with engineers. They have already evaluated the existing water mains along the Lake Avenue business corridor and ultimately decided they needed to be replaced. “We didn’t want to break up the street, repave it and then find the water main just to have to break it up again,” Nowick said. “This is the real start.”
Mario Mattera, a St. James resident and Suffolk County Water Authority board member, thanked Supervisor Ed Wehrheim (R) and the rest of the council for kicking off the revitalization. “This is so very important after all these years,” Mattera said. “St. James is so dear to my heart and needs to be done the proper way going forward. Whatever we do, we need to make sure this is done the right way so we have foot traffic and that businesses are going to come in that want to be here. This way, we can finally go down and walk our beautiful town of St. James instead of seeing all these vacant stores. I appreciate that this is moving forward.” Wehrheim said the new and improved St. James is “going to look sharp” and is hopeful the project can address the severe lack of parking in the hamlet, which he said is only hurting local businesses. He also wants to obtain county funds or grants to conduct a market analysis to receive professional input to help determine what kind of businesses belong, and can thrive, there. “Because I don’t think a mom-and-pop shoe store is going to cut it,” Wehrheim said. The supervisor said he’s looking to pluck ideas from Kings Park, which has diverse shops including a butcher, a bakery, ice cream and bagel cafes, restaurants and a performing arts theater.
NY launches drug take-back program for pharmacies BY KEVIN REDDING KEVIN@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM With the recent launch of the first statewide pharmaceutical take-back initiative, New York residents are encouraged to be more careful, and environmentally friendly, when it comes to getting rid of their old and unwanted medications. On Dec. 28, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation announced that 80 retail pharmacies, hospitals and long-term care facilities across the state will be the first to participate in its $2 million pilot pharmaceutical take-back program, and encouraged more to get on board. This program allows residents to safely dispose any unused and potentially harmful pills into a drop box at these locations beginning in April, when the boxes are slated for installation. Once collected, the drugs will be weighed, tracked and incinerated. The free, volunteer public service, funded by the state Environmental Protection Fund, is modeled after a successful safe disposal program started at King Kullen in 2014 — which, in the past three years, has safely disposed more than 7,600 pounds of pharmaceutical drugs — and aims to improve the region’s drinking water, which has become increasingly contaminated by people flushing medications down the toilet and pouring them down the sink. Flushed pharmaceutical drugs have been found in state lakes, rivers and streams, negatively affecting the waterways and the wildlife

Roughly 40 percent of groundwater samples have trace amounts of pharmaceutical drugs, with the most common being antibiotics and anticonvulsants, according to Adrienne Esposito, executive director of Citizens Campaign for the Environment. “Prescription drugs should come from our pharmacists — not from our faucets,” said Esposito, whose Farmingdale-based organization founded the King Kullen program and lobbied the state to provide funding in its budget in 2016 for the DEC to create the pilot program. “Pharmaceutical drugs are considered an ‘emerging contaminant’ in our drinking water and the flushing of unwanted drugs is one contributor to this growing problem. Safe disposal programs [like this] are critical in combating this health risk. The goal really is to pro-
vide people with an easy, safe and convenient option to dispose of their drugs. We can get ahead of this problem now rather than wait until it becomes a bigger problem later.” The pilot program is currently open and is accepting applications, according to the DEC website, which also outlines that the $2 million will be used to cover the full cost of purchasing U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration-compliant medication drop boxes, as well as the cost of pickup, transport and destruction of collected waste pharmaceuticals for a two-year period. Esposito said the program also serves to prevent accidental exposure or intentional misuse of prescription drugs. “This is a service that all pharmacies should be providing their customers,” she said. “Not only does it protect the environment, it will
keep drugs out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them.” While there aren’t many participants so far in Suffolk — among six volunteers are Huntington’s Country Village Chemists, St. James Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center and Stony Brook Student Health Services — many local pharmacy owners said they were interested in enrolling, while others have already been offering something similar. At Heritage Chemists Pharmacy & Boutique in Mount Sinai, owner Frank Bosio said he offered a take-back box for more than two years, but funding ended. “It was a great program and the community loved it,” said Bosio with interest in enrolling in the new pilot program. “I definitely want to get on board with this.” Manager of Echo Pharmacy in Miller Place, Beth Mango, said her store has a disposal box system in place that complies with Drug Enforcement Administration requirements. “We had a lot of customers asking us what they could do with their old medications,” Mango said. “We wanted to do something for the community. We’re trying to save our Earth for our children and for future generations — this is one way we know is safe.” Esposito made clear that most disposal systems outside of the launched program aren’t authorized by the DEC or other agencies, and hopes the list for this particular effort will grow. Retail pharmacies, hospitals and long-term care facilities can enroll to participate in the pilot pharmaceutical take-back program on the DEC’s website at www.dec.ny.gov/.

the Department of Health Services beginning July 1, 2018. It also mandates permits for replacement of existing systems effective July 1, 2019, and requires business properties with grandfathered nonconforming wastewater flows to install nitrogen-reducing advanced systems if making significant changes to the use of the property. Adrienne Esposito, executive director of Citizens Campaign for the Environment, joined forces with other environmental group leaders in thanking the county for what was a necessary step in eliminating nitrogen from groundwater. “We can no longer allow inadequately treated sewage to mix with our sole source of drinking water,” she said. “Modernizing our health codes is a commonsense action that is critically needed for water protection.” Richard Amper, executive director of the Long Island Pine Barrens Society, said he was overjoyed by the “huge step,” ending pollution by what he called Suffolk’s No. 1 threat to clean water. “Now, we’re not just complaining,” he said. “We’re doing something about it.” For the past three years, Suffolk’s Legislature has instituted a pilot program to test the new technologies, using a lottery system to select homeowners willing to have a donated system installed to demonstrate system performance. Under the pilot program, a total of 14 different technologies have been installed at 39 homes throughout the county. Four have been provisionally approved for use after demonstrating six months of acceptable operating data. As part of continued efforts, a voluntary Septic Improvement Program, the first of its kind in the state, was launched in July 2017 to provide grants and low-interest financing to make the replacement of cesspools and septic systems with new innovative/alternative technologies affordable for homeowners who choose to upgrade their systems. Over the first five months, nearly 850 homeowners have registered for the program, 228

have completed applications and 160 have been awarded grants and are moving toward installation of the new systems. Suffolk County was the first in the state to apply for funding from New York State’s newly created $75 million Septic System Replacement Fund and will use the funding to expand its efforts to see the new technologies installed throughout the county. The changes are the first in what is expected to be a series of updates to the county sanitary code over the next several years as county officials consider whether to put in place policies that require new nitrogenreducing systems in new construction projects, require installation of the new systems when a cesspool or septic system fails and needs to be replaced, or upon sale of a property. For now, all parties involved are on the same page moving forward, including both a working group comprised of county legislators, town planners and engineers with members of environmental organizations, as well as the Long Island Builders Institute. “There is more work to do,” said Kevin McDonald, conservation finance and policy director for The Nature Conservancy on Long Island. “But passage of this bill means less nitrogen pollution in our water, and more resilient, healthy bays and people for generations to come.”

Cuomo delivers State of the State address BY SABRINA PETROSKI Although chatter is starting to pick up that he might be a candidate for president on the Democratic ticket in 2020, for now Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is still in a New York state of mind. On Jan. 3 Cuomo gave his State of the State address, in which he explained his agenda for the coming year. He began by touting some quality of life issues in New York state that are improving. “Crime is down statewide, we have a cleaner environment, we have a fairer criminal justice system, we have more high school graduates who are attending colleges,” Cuomo said.
“We have preserved more land than ever before, enacted a more progressive tax code, and launched the most ambitious building program in the country.” Cuomo split the problems he believes the state is facing and his speech into three sections: the challenges of old discrimination and sexism within society, safety threats and the new federal and economic challenges “we have never experienced before.” He referred to the challenges he plans to address in the coming year as “a three front war.” First, Cuomo pitched a reform on how the state deals with sexual assault and harassment claims in the workplace for employees paid by tax dollars.
“Policies should be binding on all state employees in all authorities, in all agencies and on local governments,” he said. His suggested reforms would include a uniform code of sexual harassment policies, a contraceptive care act, and a governmentwide anonymous whistleblower process so victims feel safer stepping forward. “No taxpayers funds should be used to pay for any public official’s sexual harassFile photo ment or misconduct,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo Cuomo said. pointed to workplace sexual He also said the misconduct and overall public New York State pension safety as areas to watch. fund should only be invested in companies the comptroller determines have adequate female and minority representation in management and on the board of directors while showing effective corporate leadership. “Our lady justice is still not color blind and her scales are still not balanced,” he said. The governor spoke of a redevelopment plan for the major transportation hubs throughout the state, an initiative spearheaded in the hopes of improving safety and mobility. These places will be equipped with more and better trained police personnel and more state-of-the-art surveillance systems, according to Cuomo. A large transportation hub Cuomo said he is focusing on is Penn Station. He said he has created a plan to restructure and rebuild Penn Station to improve operations, aesthetics and security. He is also proposing a plan to rebuild the major train stations that connect the Long Island Rail Road to Penn Station. He also said he has plans to remove traditional toll booths, and replace them with electric toll structures as a way of reducing congestion along main highways and bridges, a movement that is already underway. Lastly, Cuomo said he will continue to invest in and improve public education. He plans to expand 3- and 4-year-old prekidergarten, also after-school and computer science programs. He vowed to make sure more state school aid is being dedicated to poorer districts, and to make sure the local education districts are distributing more money from received grants to poorer schools. “Trickle-down economics doesn’t work, and neither does trickle-down education funding,” Cuomo said. On Jan. 5, Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan (R-East Northport) provided a response to Cuomo’s State of the State address, expressing similar hopes for the coming year. He said the urgency of creating a more affordable New York, as well as protecting those who live here should be a priority of lawmakers for 2018. “Our self-imposed 2 percent spending cap has already saved our state $41 billion,” Flanagan said. “It’s time for the governor and Assembly Democrats to join with us in making that spending cap permanent. Doing so will help to ensure a balanced, fiscally responsible budget that protects taxpayers this year, and every year.” He echoed the governor’s message on public safety. “Senate Republicans know that if you, your family and your community aren’t safe and secure, nothing else matters,” Flanagan said. Many of the policies Cuomo spoke of in his address are already starting to be put into effect. “This is the year we make New York great again,” Cuomo said.

Smithtown East falls in close game to Huntington BY BILL LANDON There were threes all over the place Monday night, and just like the three c’s in Katie Seccafico’s last name, it seemed the senior was calling for them. Seccafico banked three triples on her way to a game-high 13 points in Huntington’s 45-37 League III win over Smithtown East Jan. 8. She had eight assists and four steals to go along with it. “We spent a lot of time preparing for the face guard,” Seccafico said. “We had good communication on defense and that really helped us dropping back, letting everyone know where we are on the court.” The guard scored her first 3-pointer to cap off a 17-0 Blue Devils run to open the first quarter, and added another by the halftime break. Senior Alexandra Heuwetter nailed two of her own to help Huntington to a 26-14 lead. “At first, it’s not what we expected we thought,” Heuwetter said. “We thought they would face guard us, but they didn’t, and that gave us a lot of open shots.” Smithtown East senior point guard Ceili Williams (13 points) also made her presence known, drawing fouls while driving to the basket and going 6-for-7 from the free-throw line. Even with her team making shot after shot to extend the advantage, as Hunting-
Huntington 45 Smithtown E 37
ton outscored Smithtown East 13-9 in the third, sophomore forward Riva Bergman said she was impressed with her team’s defensive effort. “I think we’re ready for any challenge,” she said. “We slowed the tempo, we ran our plays and we were able to knock down shots.” Huntington senior Nicole Leslie, who had not seen action early in the season due to injury, was at full strength in the second half and battled in the paint to lead her team with six points in the third. She finished the game with 12 rebounds. The Bulls had their work cut out for them in the final eight minutes of play, trailing by 16, but refused to go quietly. Freshman Paige Doherty drained a three to make it a 12-point game, and Williams added her own to draw within nine points in regulation, but it was as close as Smithtown East would come. “They’re big, they’re athletic, they’re strong, but I just told them I’m very proud of how they battled back — they didn’t hang their heads and give up at 17-0,” Smithtown East head coach Tom Vulin said. The seniors led the way for the Blue Devils, which moved to 2-2 in the season to be even with Smithtown East, as Leslie and Heuwetter followed close behind Seccafico with 11 points apiece. Huntington head coach Michael Kaplan has enjoyed seeing his team at full strength. “Earlier in the year we had some inju-
ries and sicknesses, so it was hard for us to practice at full strength, but we’re finally healthy,” he said. “We’re a young team considering we only have three seniors, and it helped that we shot well early on, but our
three seniors really stepped up today — that really helped us.”

Patricia Tappin and Tara O’Grady’s fifthgrade class at Mandracchia Sawmill Intermediate School in Commack was given the task to come up with a way to give back to the members of our community during this holiday season. The students, with the help of their families, decided to collect toiletries and create gift baskets for the residents of the Gurwin Jewish Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. The residents were overwhelmed with joy as they opened their gift bags to find specialty soaps, shampoos, hand creams and other items to use to pamper themselves as they get ready for the day. The students were filled with pride knowing they were giving back to the local elderly community members to brighten their holidays.
