Report compiles sex abuse claims against 51 from Rockville diocese BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM A group of lawyers released a report Feb. 5 compiling allegations of sexual abuse of children made against 51 individuals associated with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rockville Centre. Lawyers Helping Survivors of Child Sex Abuse, a national team of attorneys dedicated to representing victims of sexual abuse, compiled and released the list in an effort to raise awareness about alleged clergy sex abuse on Long Island by providing the public with a list of accused abusers and which church they work or worked at, according to a press release from the group. The list includes allegations against several employees of North Shore churches and schools. Times Beacon Record News Media will not link to the report or mention specific allegations against individuals, churches or schools until they can be independently verified. The newspaper is also aware of the presumption that people are innocent until proven guilty. According to the report, called “Hidden Disgrace II,” most of the allegations have not been heard in a court because they were reported after the expiration of statutes of limitations. The report says the allegations should not be considered substantiated claims, but rather public accusations unless otherwise indicated in the report.
In 2003, a Suffolk County grand jury investigated the issue of clergy sex abuse in the diocese and released a more-than 180page report detailing allegations against 23 unnamed priests and actions by diocese officials to conceal abuse. In a section of the Feb. 5 report entitled “Methodology,” it says many of the 51 named individuals in “Hidden Disgrace II” were described but not officially named in the 2003 grand jury report. Some of the 51 named individuals were subsequently identified by survivors and the media following the grand jury report. Others in the report were named by individuals who came forward to share their stories with the law group or media outlets. “The public needs more information about these alleged predators and the churches, schools and communities where they worked,” said attorney Jerry Kristal, of Weitz & Luxenberg, one of three law firms associated with the group, along with Noaker Law Firm LLC and James, Vernon & Weeks P.A. “The Rockville Centre diocese’s silence on the issue has only served the accused abusers and left survivors and local communities in the dark.” An email requesting comment from the diocese communications team was not immediately returned. Check TBR News Media online and in print in the coming weeks for more on this story.
Groundhogs tell conflicting stories BY SARA-MEGAN WALSH SARA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM The snowflakes stopped falling moments before Brookhaven’s famous groundhog offered this year’s prediction — it was a good omen of what is to come. More than 100 residents cheered as the famed Town of Brookhaven groundhog, Holtsville Hal, did not see his shadow, an indicator that spring would come early this year. Conversely, Malverne Mel saw his shadow, calling for six more weeks of winter. Their more famous relative, Punxsutawney Phil, agreed with Mel while perched on a stump in his home state of Pennsylvania. Staten Island Chuck went the way of Hal. Town Highway Superintendent Dan Losquadro (R) was keeping his fingers crossed for an early spring. “I’m happy,” he said. “We love winter here on Long Island. We love the kids to be able to play in the snow, but we don’t want winter to last any longer than it has to.” Hal made his 22nd annual Groundhog Day prediction at the Wildlife and Ecology Center Animal Preserve in Holtsville at 7:25 a.m., as per tradition, according to the master of ceremonies Wayne Carrington. Tradition says that if Hal — or, as he’s known in the town as a throwback to the classic Bill Murray movie “Groundhog Day,” the Great Prognosticator of Prognosticators — sees his shadow when he wakes from hibernation, the community is in for six more weeks of winter. “So he exited the ground, not a creature was stirring and not a shadow was found,”
read Losquadro from a large scroll to the cheers of onlookers. “I cannot tell a lie, my prediction so accurate does not come from the sky. I saw what I saw in a blink of an eye.” Those who attended were treated to free hot cocoa to warm up and celebrate the good news. Both Losquadro and Carrington asked residents to make donations to the ecology center to help support care for its animals and programs. “I don’t know what to wear anymore,” said Carrington. “Mr. Weatherman, and weathermen across the universe, please listen to the groundhog today. Listen to the groundhog, please make it so I know what to wear.” For more information about Holtsville Hal, visit his website www.holtsvillehal.org.

TOWN ‘We cannot move forward without modernizing the town codes, zoning and planning. It is the first big step in making downtown revitalization — Ed Wehrheim a reality.’ SMITHTOWN PLANNING
A conceptual rendering of St. James downtown revitalization
Smithtown: $30M in capital projects coming by 2022 Highlights of 2019-22 capital plan:
$2.2M for improvements to Flynn Memorial Park in Commack
$500,000 in renovations for tennis, basketball courts at Gaynor Park New playground, handicap-accessible bathrooms and new surfacing for water park at Veterans Memorial Park in St. James
BY KEVIN REDDING KEVIN@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM With the adoption of more than $30 million in capital plans Tuesday, Smithtown officials hope to be looking at a robust future. Smithtown Town Board approved its 2018 capital budget of $9.5 million — $8.8 million is bonded — and a proposed 2019-22 capital plan — totaling $20.8 million. The majority of the 2018 capital budget funds St. James downtown business district improvements, with $4.6 million in bonds set aside for the revitalization of Lake Avenue, of which $2.4 million will fund water main replacement.
For 2018, town officials have set aside funding to completely revise the town code — $300,000 — and update the town’s master plan on a budget of $500,000. Supervisor Ed Wehrheim (R) said these will serve as “blueprints for all downtown revitalization throughout Smithtown.” “Without these two items, downtown revitalization is merely a concept,” Wehrheim said. “We cannot move forward without modernizing the town codes, zoning and planning. It is the first big step in making downtown revitalization a reality.” Wehrheim said the town’s existing master plan was written in-house at least 10 years ago. Bouncing off the success of a recent
market analysis study by an outside urban planner of what was needed to revitalize downtown Kings Park — that broke down the pros and cons of different sections of the hamlet — the town will issue a request for proposals to bring in a new set of eyes to evaluate and suggest improvements to the existing plan. “The master plan is essentially going to be that, but times 10 or 20,” town spokeswoman Nicole Garguilo said. “It’s geared toward figuring out where the town is going to be decades down the line and the focus of progress for this new administration. It’s really the start of making this town more small business friendly and civic minded.” Once the results of the evaluation are collected, Wehrheim and other council members will pick and choose what improvements work best for Smithtown. “We want to hear what they think we need to move forward in the business districts and the rest of the town going into the future,” Wehrheim said. While discussing the recodification plans, Councilman Thomas McCarthy (R) said, “This is going to bring things into the 21st century.” “It’s going to streamline things and help

residents, help small businesses,” McCarthy said. “It’s been decades now and there’s no reason to make people have to — as I like to say — ‘spit blood’ just to get a permit. Right now they have to go to the board of zoning appeals and planning boards for things approved 95 to 100 percent of the time.” Among its planned projects for 2019-22, the town will look to fund $2.2 million in improvements at various town parks: Flynn Memorial Park in Commack to turn it into a premiere Long Island sports park; $500,000 in renovations to Gaynor Park in St. James that include new tennis and basketball courts, a playground with improved surfacing, installation of refurbished, handicap-accessible bathrooms; and new surfacing in the waterpark at Veterans Memorial Park in St. James. The town also plans to add steps leading to the gazebo at Nesconset Chamber of Commerce, install LED lighting in Maple Avenue Park in Smithtown, repave and landscape the Bellemeade Avenue parking area and replace its deteriorating showmobile. New highway equipment will be purchased, including yard generators for Smithtown and Kings Park. “There are so many things, and this is just the beginning,” McCarthy said.

St. James nonprofit delivers donated food for big game Miller Place supermarket owner steps up when funds fall short, caters feast for displaced Northport veterans BY DESIRÉE KEEGAN DESIREE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM On the day of the big game, Tommy O’Grady was the real patriot. The owner of Miller Place’s Tuscany Gourmet Market donated food for 107 local veterans to make sure the servicemen and women could enjoy Super Bowl LII. Original plans were to prepare a feast for 40 veterans at the VA Northport Beacon House Homeless Shelter through Veterans For A More Responsive Government, a nonprofit working to increase the public’s awareness of harassment and mistreatment of disabled U.S. veterans. Pipes burst at the Beacon House Jan. 12, according to Todd Goodman, spokesman for Northport VAMC, and the veterans were split up and moved to nine different homes after making plans to watch the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots duke it out. When O’Grady was approached with the change of plans, he didn’t hesitate to alter his. “I have a gifted life, I’m doing well right now. To see people [in need] who put their lives on the line and did their time, it’s not right,” O’Grady said. “For me, to give this to them, it’s the only way to say ‘Thank you.’” O’Grady had been connected with Robert Cornicelli, founder of the veterans nonprofit group, through his childhood friend and Suffolk County Republican Committee Chairman John Jay LaValle. The two grew up in Centereach together, and when LaValle was approached by Cornicelli asking first for help stretching his $540 into food for 40, he knew who to call. “Tommy is the type of guy I’m almost afraid to talk in front of because God forbid you mention somebody is in need, he jumps right on it in two seconds,” the chairman said. “I was so embarrassed to

opened his home to him, providing food and shelter. With the help of LaValle and former Smithtown Supervisor Pat Vecchio, Fajardo earned part-time jobs within Smithtown and Brookhaven towns, eventually becoming an investigator for the Town of Islip. “It’s thanks to those guys that I’m here,” Fajardo said. “When I saw the work [Cornicelli] was doing I immediately hopped on board. It’s a great feeling helping out brothers and sisters in need.” LaValle said seeing the groups of “good guys” come together has been mental therapy for him. “It’s a tough world right now,” he said. “It’s a very hostile world at times. This is something that’s been really rewarding because you learn you may think you have it bad, and you may be whining about something, but it’s very true that there’s always someone out there who has it worse. Now I want to do more to help out.” He pointed to Cornicelli and O’Grady as prime examples of model citizens. “If everyone did what Tommy did, there’d be a lot fewer problems in this world, that’s for sure — certainly there wouldn’t be any world hunger,” he said, laughing. “And what Robert is doing is absolutely wonderful, he deserves a lot of credit.” But on the day of the Super Bowl, Cornicelli called O’Grady the real hero, who donated much more than just heroes. “I never met the guy in my life, and he tells me he’s taking care of the whole thing — it’s unbelievable,” Cornicelli said. “He broke everything down to the exact amount needed to feed the veterans at each location, and it’s an amazing feeling when these guys’ eyes are wide open, saying, ‘This is what we’re getting?’ rather than bagged lunches. It’s refreshing to see guys helping out. Tommy, he’s one of the greatest patriots I’ve ever met.”

ST. JAMES FUNERAL HOME
This February, the St. James and greater Smithtown community is focused on sharing words of love and support to help one family through a difficult time. One by one, cards and small care packages are finding their way to a pink and white mailbox, painted with the words “Kindness for the Keely family.” Each Friday, this mailbox, created by St. James Elementary Parent-Teacher Association, will be delivered to the family of Paige Keely. The 6-year-old Paige — nicknamed “Paigey Bean” — was a first-grader at St. James Elementary School who died of a rare brain condition Jan. 8. Her parents, Tom and Gina Keely, are active members of the St. James community and have two other children, Maeve and Ronan. “A big concern for all of us is once everything dies down and the dust settles, that the Keelys still feel supported by the community,” said Celina Murphy, president of St. James Elementary PTA. “No one’s forgotten them, we’re all still here.” Pink ribbons can be spotted across the Smithtown Paige Keely Central School District tied to signs, poles, trees and even in high school cheerleaders’ hair in memory of Paige in the days after her death. Business owners reached out to show their support. Commack resident Nicole Helfman, owner of Creative Cutz Design, made 350 vinyl decals for the school district so they could be put up in car windows and glass storefronts. “For anyone who has kids, knows kids or is a teacher, it just hits home,” Helfman said. “People want to help out.” Now, PTA members are passing a mailbox between buildings to collect donations of sympathy cards, gift cards, restaurant certificates, small care packages and other well wishes from community members for the Keely family. It will be at Nesaquake Middle School through Feb. 9, followed by Smithtown High School West from Feb. 12 to 16. “The outpouring has been tremendous from the community both within the district and community at large,” said Mary Grace Lynch, principal of St. James Elementary School. “Within the district, the teachers, staff and administration have been incredibly supportive of the Keely family.” Those who wish to send a sympathy card or donation, but do not have children in the school, can mail packages clearly marked “Kindness for Keely” to St. James Elementary School at 580 Lake Ave., St. James, NY 11780. Lynch said the school will be constructing a butterfly garden in memory of Paige at the family’s request, once they are ready. The principal said she is confident with the number of Scout troops, high school teams and clubs who have reached out asking how to honor Paige’s memory. There will be no shortage of hands and support to construct the garden. “That little girl has impacted so many, many people in her six short years of life,” Lynch said. “She’s had a profound and lasting effect on the community.” The Kindness for Keely mailbox will be at: Accompsett Elementary School, Feb. 26 to March 3; Tackan Elementary, March 5 to 9; Mills Pond Elementary, March 12 to 16; Smithtown Elementary, March 19 to 23; Dogwood Elementary, March 26 to 30; High School East, April 9 to 13; Mount Pleasant Elementary; April 16 to 20; Accompsett Middle School, April 23 to 27; and Great Hollow Middle School, April 30 to May 4.
‘A big concern for all of us is once everything dies down and the dust settles, that the Keelys still feel supported by the community.’

Two abandoned hens were found frozen to death in Millers Pond in Smithtown.
$1.5K reward for hens’ info Who let the hens loose in Millers Pond? That’s the question two nonprofits are asking. Suffolk County’s Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is offering a $1,000 reward and Long Island Orchestrating for Nature, a nonprofit organization against use and abuse of animals, is offering a $500 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the individual(s) who abandoned hens in Millers Pond in Smithtown resulting in their death on or about Jan. 16. Roy Gross, chief of the Suffolk County SPCA said that it is illegal to abandon any
animal including wildlife. “Chickens and other fowl feel pain and fear just like we do, and they depend on us completely to keep them safe,” said John Di Leonardo, president and anthropologist of LION. “Whoever killed these birds lacks empathy and is a threat to our community.” Di Leonardo urged anyone with information to contact the SPCA before this criminal hurts someone else.” Anyone with information is asked to call the Suffolk County SPCA at 631-382-7722.

SPORTS Sam Schultz continues to score big for Kings Park Senior who eclipsed 1,500 points and set new school points record last month, finished with 33 in win over Rocky Point BY JIM FERCHLAND Sam Schultz continues to be an unstoppable girls basketball force. The sensational senior scorer recorded 33 points for the Kingsmen Feb. 1, leading Kings Park to a 68-41 blowout victory over the visiting Rocky Point Eagles. Kings Park improves to 17-2 on the year and 13-2 in League V, having won 13 consecutive games. Schultz, who scored 22 points in the first half, hauled in nine rebounds and four assists in the win. Kings Park had a 12-point lead over Rocky Point at the break, but outscored the Eagles 30-15 in the second half. “We can score at will,” Kings Park head coach Tom Edmundson said. “We really have an offensive-minded team. We talk about it a lot trying to step up our defensive game. We struggled a little bit in the first half, but we definitely came together in the second.” Schultz said she likes to shoot from 3-point range, but said she felt she had to attack the basket more against Rocky Point. “I tried to get to the lane and draw some fouls,” Schultz said. “The refs were calling them so, for me personally, I attacked the lane more.” In her fifth varsity year with the Kingsmen, Schultz recently surpassed 1,500 career points, hitting the milestone marker Jan. 23 against Hauppauge, where she finished with a double-double on 34 points and 18 rebounds. Two days later, she broke the scoring record for both boys and girls basketball at 1,515 points in a home game against Sayville, a record that has stood since 2004.
Kings Park 68 Rocky Point 41
Schultz said her main focus remains competing hard every game to help her Kings Park team get to where it wants to go. “It’s crazy,” Schultz said of her achievements. “I’m happy I get to leave my mark on Kings Park, but I just want to win. I just want to make it as far as we can. I want to get a county championship so bad. I feel this year, we have a really good shot. I’m excited.” Edmundson, who has coached the varsity team for nine years, said it’s remarkable to have a player like Schultz. “We’ve had some talented teams over the years, but she makes a big difference,” Edmundson said. “She broke 1,000 points last year. She was a little over 1,000 going into this year. She did what she did last year to have a chance to get to 1,500, but she’s blowing it away. She can get up to 1,600 before the season ends, which is not something we really expected.”
Clockwise from top left, Sam Hogan moves the ball downcourt; Sam Schultz makes her way into Rocky Point territory; Schultz shoots from outside; and Kings Park girls basketball head coach Tom Edmundson celebrates the win with his team. Rocky Point’s Clare Levy led the Eagles with 20 points, all scored in the first half. She accounted for almost half of Rocky Point’s 41 points. The Eagles fell to 7-10 on the year and 4-10 in League V. Junior guard Sam Hogan contributed 10 points and four assists for Kings Park. She played with multiple injuries, bruising her elbow and hand in the previous game against Westhampton, and breaking her pinky in a win over Harborfields Jan. 18. She said she feels pain physically, but that doesn’t stop her from doing what she can to help secure a win. Edmundson said Hogan is a freak of nature. “She’s the toughest kid I’ve probably ever coached,” Edmundson said. “She’s a competitor. She’s actually a phenomenal soccer player. She’s an outstanding basketball player as well.” Kings Park will face East Islip on the road Feb. 8 at 3:30 p.m. It’s Kings Park’s final regular season game before playoffs. “It’s been a really intense year,” Hogan said. “Since last year, I felt we should have won the league. This year is the year for revenge.”
Keeping score Copiague 52, Smithtown West 45
Chris Crespo scored 17 points, Michael Gannon added 12 and Matt Behrens contributed 10 in Smithtown West’s boys basketball’s away loss Feb. 6.
Copiague 60, Smithtown West 45
Gabby Lorefice finished with 16 points, Natalie Condzal contributed 11 and Madison Flynn five in Smithtown West’s girls basketball’s home loss Feb. 6.
Kings Park 47, Rocky Point 36
Zach Wolf scored 14 points to lead Kings Park to a win at Rocky Point Feb. 2. Andrew Bianco had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Kingsmen,
which now is 11-3 in League V. Kings Park hosts East Islip Feb. 8 at 5:45 p.m. before hosting East Hampton Feb. 12 at 6:45 p.m. in the final game of the regular season.

Historic Home Charm H
istoric residential buildings and neighborhoods have a certain “je ne sais quoi” that appeals to our real estate dreams.
You’ve seen historical homes on movies and TV. There is something about the architecture, the brick and the tree-lined streets that has us mentally moving in our furniture and imagining bringing groceries into a gorgeous, light-filled space. However, our imaginations have a way of glossing over th less glamorous aspects of historic living. If you are considering life in a historically registered abode, reflect on the following lifestyle features bfore signing on the dotted line. HIDDEN EXPENSES Have you looked into what the real estate taxes are for 2018 Greenshoot Media
your coveted historic home? What about home insurance rates? Both can be automatically high and are above and beyond the sticker price of the home. It is important to carefully go over your finances to ensure you cannot only afford to purchase the home but to keep it. History costs. REPAIRS Having to make repairs to any home is unpleasant, but if your building or home has been designated a landmark or holds a place on a historic register, it can be a logistical nightmare. Many city landmark commissions require tenants to preserve the historic look of a home or building by using as many historically accurate materials as possible, which can get expensive very quickly.
LACK OF MODERN CONVENIENCES Think central air conditioning. Think small closets. Think pre-war co-op with no elevator. On a beautiful spring day, it’s
easy to think, “Oh, this place is definitely worth the sacrifice,” but life isn’t perfect and day-today living is often led through many challenges. There may be less glamor-
ous parts of “living historically” that you are overlooking. Check in with others who have made homes in historical houses. Hearing stories from them can sway your decision. ©99106

Suffolk schools need good partners There’s a lot of talk about public-private partnerships at all levels of government. If our state officials can strike a deal to benefit New York’s inmates, we think it’s time to negotiate for the benefit of our collective future — Suffolk County students. New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision announced a deal with a private company, JPay, to provide free tablets to approximately 51,000 state prisoners. JPay is a Miamibased company that provides technology and services to help the incarcerated stay connected with people outside prison. The state prisoners will be able to read e-books, listen to music and even have family send money back to them. “The decision by New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision to allow inmates to be provided free tablets is a slap in the face and an insult to every hardworking, law-abiding, taxpaying family across New York State that struggles to provide these same tablets and other school supplies for their children,” said state Assemblyman Dean Murray (R-East Patchogue). We have to agree. To be clear, helping incarcerated citizens develop tools for success upon their release is a worthwhile endeavor for both the individuals and the society they hope to assimilate back into at the conclusion of their sentence. However, if such a deal can be struck for those in jail, we’d like to see the New York State Department of Education at least attempt to negotiate a private-public partnership with technology manufacturers or educational software providers to see if a similar arrangement can be made. It’s no secret that many Suffolk County teachers wind up purchasing basic supplies — crayons, construction paper, glue, markers, calculators and other supplies — for their classrooms out of their own pockets. If a penny of funding for basic staples is coming from teachers’ pockets, more expensive, big-ticket items must also be a problem, despite the passage of the Smart Schools Bond Act in 2014, which was enacted for the purpose of updating technology in schools. Kings Park High School announced it received approval for its state technology initiative in November 2017, one of the first districts on Long Island to do so. It is the first time the district can afford major technological upgrades in 10 years. Let that sink in — the computers, networks and internet capabilities our students rely on are more than a decade old. Suffolk County’s public schools educate more than 235,000 students from kindergarten through 12th grade, according to the New York State Department of Education’s figures for the 2016-17 school year. While this is five times more than our state prisoners, it should not be perceived as impossible. We’d like to see the state education department and our school districts get creative in finding solutions to budgetary problems. School budget season is getting underway and finding and negotiating publicprivate partnerships with some of the large businesses in their backyard could be the solution taxpayers are looking for.

In the news conference unveiling his 2018-19 executive state budget, Gov. Andrew Cuomo again calls for a plan to initiate early voting in New York State along with same-day voter registration. It isn’t the first time he has called upon counties in New York to implement this plan. Unfortunately, his proposal has gone nowhere time and time again. It is time for that to change. Cuomo’s plan would require counties to offer at least one early voting polling location for every 50,000 residents during a 12-day period before Election Day. The polling sites would be open at least eight hours on weekdays and five hours on weekends, thereby providing multiple opportunities for those unable to accommodate a visit to the polls during their working hours. New York is one of only 13 states to lack some form of early voting. In 2016’s presidential race, some 30 million Americans took advantage of early voting — none of them were from New York. In fact, statistics show that with 60.2 percent of the 231 million eligible voters casting ballots in the 2016 election, an increase compared to the 58.6 percent in 2012, national
turnout was still reduced by approximately 1.5 percent due to low turnout in three of the four most populous states: California, New York and Texas. The six highest-ranking states in terms of voter turnout, according to a report by Nonprofit VOTE, which partners with nonprofits to assist people with participating in voting, all offered same-day voting registration. In addition, unlike voters across the country, residents of New York can only vote ahead of time by absentee ballot if they can offer proof that their profession, business, travel, school work, illness or disability prevents them from getting to the polls. The result of all these obstacles is that voter participation in New York is anemic. The antiquated system that exists due to an unwillingness on the part of the state Legislature to adopt new procedures is hampering the rights of individuals from all walks of life who want to participate in the election process. In addition, counties want assurances that implementing new voting laws — which could cost an estimated $7 million — will not result in another unfunded state mandate. Gov. Cuomo needs to
provide that commitment. The early voting measure, which has been embraced by the state Assembly has unfortunately fallen victim to partisan politics in the state Senate. But modernization of the voting system in New York must be a bipartisan priority to ensure that voters are not disenfranchised. Voting is one of our most cherished rights as Americans, yet voter turnout is rarely what we hope it will be. Not everyone can get to the polls on Election Day or take time off from work to vote. The governor’s early voting proposal will make it easier for New Yorkers to participate in the democratic process. Times have changed, and although some traditions and laws forged in the past rightfully remain in place, others must adapt to changes in societal values, priorities and circumstances. I support the governor in this endeavor and encourage our state lawmakers to do the same. You should do the same.

Trump promises versus actions Dear Mr. President, Thank you for continuing to take the fight to ISIS. You deserve much credit for virtually eliminating ISIS as a threat. Obama underestimated this threat and did not begin to make inroads until 2016 and you followed and modified that plan to completion. But why are you escalating tensions with North Korea? Please do not replace the threat from ISIS with a threat of nuclear war. Thank you for continuing to grow the U.S. economy and increasing jobs. In Obama’s last year, 2016, 2.34 million jobs were added. In 2017, 2.17 million jobs were added. Thank you for continuing this. But where are the wage gains and the good working-class jobs that you promised? I hope they are coming, and without inflation. Thank you for continuing to deport violent undocumented immigrants. Obama deported 5 million violent undocumented
immigrants. Your administration deported 100,000 last year. Thank you for continuing to make this a priority. But why are you ripping families apart by demonizing and deporting nonviolent undocumented immigrants? That’s more than 100,000 families ripped apart. Thank you for cutting taxes on the working class. But why are you also cutting taxes on the wealthy? What programs will you cut to ensure we don’t go into a deficit and burden future generations? Thank you for highlighting investment in infrastructure, workforce development and job training, and paid family leave in your State of the Union address. These are sorely needed and will benefit our country. But how will you pay for these programs now that you cut taxes so dramatically on the wealthy? Hopefully not through more deficit spending.
Thank you for bringing the “best and brightest” into your administration. But, oh wait, you didn’t do that. You’ve just brought public embarrassment and rotating positions: Flynn, Scaramucci, Spicer, Priebus, Price, Dubke, Shaub, Fitzgerald. Your brightest addition, Tillerson, won’t deny having called you a moron. Thank you for giving America great health care insurance, as promised. Thank you for ensuring high ethical standards for politicians and mitigating corruption. Thank you for applying sanctions to Russia for meddling in U.S. elections. Thank you for coming clean about the debt you owe to Russia so that we know the Kremlin does not have its hands in your pockets. But, oh wait, none of those things have happened yet.

Superheroes are transformed into lightning rods
eople spend millions of dollars each year to find compatible friends and dates. The dating sites, the self-help books and magazines and the life coaches ask copious questions about our likes and dislikes and what we need around us. Maybe they are missing a key question that can reveal important yet hard-todescribe details about how we feel about ourselves and the world. That question relates to our feelings for lightning rod figures. Let’s start By Daniel Dunaief with Tom Brady, who just lost his third Super Bowl last Sunday, despite a heroic effort. The quarterback, who has won five other Super Bowls, is a
D. None of the above
legend, is extraordinarily successful and has one of the most impressive résumés of anyone in the game. Indeed, even people who know nothing about football — and I have a foot in that camp — know who he is and have an awareness of his remarkable success. In a country that celebrates victories, however, he doesn’t seem to be high on the national likability scale. I’m sure there are plenty of Patriots fans who disagree and think the world loves their superhero. Sorry, but I’m sure you can find the Brady haters on the internet. Anyway, maybe what causes them to dislike the superstar is the spectacular and well-earned selfconfidence. Maybe it’s the fairy tale life. Then again, isn’t that what we all buy into when we watch Disney movies? Doesn’t his name, Tom Brady, suggests some kind of Disney superhero, who saves the day with perfectly placed passes despite defenses bearing down on him? Then again, maybe, for some his
friendship with Donald Trump is problematic. The president has become an important compatibility filter as well. It’s hard to imagine two people agreeing to disagree calmly about a president who some believe has either saved us from the likes of Hillary Clinton or has created new and deep fault lines in the country. Then there are those people who seem to fall into and out of favor. Watching the movie “Darkest Hour,” it’s clear that other politicians didn’t see Winston Churchill as a superhero whose destiny was to lead the British nation through one of its most challenging crises. He was the right man at the right time for an impossible job, facing what seemed like insurmountable odds. And yet, despite his cigar-chomping, nation-inspiring heroics, it was bye, bye Winston almost immediately after World War II ended. The same could be said of America’s mayor, Rudy Giuliani. He wasn’t
exactly a legend in New York before Sept. 11, 2001, as he seemed to pick fights with everyone and anyone. And then, after 9/11, he somehow struck just the right balance for a nation in mourning, offering sympathy and support while remaining proud of the country and defiant in the face of the attack. After he left office, the bloom came off that rose quickly as well. Then there’s George W. Bush — or “43,” if you prefer. Many people couldn’t stand him when he was in office, with his nuke-u-lar (for nuclear), his snickering and his parodyable speech patterns. And yet, these days, his image and his reputation have made a comeback, particularly today as common ground seems to be disappearing under the feet of the two major political parties. Maybe these dating sites shouldn’t ask your hobbies, religious preferences or favorite foods. Instead, they should ask what you think of Tom Brady, the current U.S. president and the wartime prime minister of England.
Love is in the air: Happy Valentine’s Day!
ere are some sentiments about that undefinable emotion: Love. Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointlife has By Leah S. Dunaief ments thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or
Between you and me
laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colors seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there is no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby.

Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life. Bob Marley Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. Lao Tzu

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our full potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. John Lennon I heard what you said. I’m not the silly romantic that you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want … a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love and be loved. Shana Abé
