The videos Filipkowski made were shared among the Kings Park Chamber of

Commerce and different local businesses and he was soon introduced to Leo Ostebo, the owner of the Kings Park Heritage Museum, a self-funded organization within the school district. After just one visit to the museum, he told Ostebo he was going make a minidocumentary for him for free. “He said to me ‘I’m going to make this place come alive’ like he made the town come alive in his other videos,” Ostebo said over the phone. “He’s one hell of a photographer, he’s dynamite, and the video really took off.” The dynamite Filipkowski delivered was an uplifting and emotional reel about the museum and its impact on the community with sweeping drone shots, professionalsounding narration and such high production values that it looked more like a trailer for a Hollywood blockbuster than a little promo video. “I started marketing it on social media and within four days, that video reached more than 100,000 people,” he said. Residents who had been living in Kings Park their whole life were just discovering the organization through the video. Ostebo even got calls from people in China and across Europe who had seen it. “Now, the Kings Park Heritage Museum had to change their hours because they can’t fit all the people who want to see it,” Filipkowski said. “It’s working.” Filipkowski and Inzerillo are confident it’ll continue to work in Smithtown, and the filmmaker said he expects to have videos up on the website within a month.

Protest against Head of the Harbor resident, Trump donor swarms 25A A large group of political protesters paraded along busy Route 25A in East Setauket March 24, aiming their outcry not just at the administration in Washington, D.C., but at a reclusive hedge fund billionaire by the name of Robert Mercer residing in their own backyard. Mercer, the co-CEO of an East Setauketbased investment firm, Renaissance Technologies, and resident of Head of the Harbor, has been under the spotlight for being the money behind President Donald Trump’s (R) administration, maintaining a major influence on the White House’s agenda, including its strict immigration policies. Mercer, a major backer of the far-right Breitbart News, reportedly contributed nearly $13.5 million to the Trump campaign and, along with his daughter Rebekah, played a part in securing the leadership positions of chief strategist Steve Bannon and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway. Regarding Mercer as the administration’s puppeteer-in-chief, protesters assembled to bring public attention to the local family’s power in the White House and the influence “dark money” has had in America. “I think we’ve reached a worrisome point in our history that a single individual can have the kind of influence that Robert Mercer has, simply because he has a huge amount of money,” Setauket resident John

Robinson said. “I think he’s an extremely dangerous individual with worrisome views. He just wants government to not be around so people like him and companies like his can plunder to their heart’s content.” The short march, made up of several protest groups including the North Country Peace Group, began at the CVS shopping center and landed at the bottom of the hill where Mercer’s Renaissance Technologies sits. Leading the march were local residents wearing paper cutout masks of Trump, Bannon and U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley), each strung up like puppets and controlled by a resident in a grim reaper outfit, representing Mercer. Equipped with signs reading “Mercer $ Bought Trump We Pay the Price” and “Resist Mercer,” Long Island residents stood in front of the investment firm’s office and participated in a mock debate with the faux-political figures. The topics ranged from Mercer’s denial of climate change to Zeldin’s stance on the now-pulled American Health Care Act. Sue McMahon, a member of the grassroots coalition Building Bridges in Brookhaven, had only recently learned about Mercer’s heavy involvement in Trump’s presidency and his close proximity and participated in the march to expose him. “I’m very concerned we have a person like this among us who holds the power of the Republican Party,” McMahon said.

Legislators vote for higher fines, jail time for illegal dumping at parks By Desirée Keegan desiree@tbrnewspapers.com The penalty for illegally dumping on county-owned properties may soon include jail time in Suffolk County, after legislators unanimously approved on March 28 both increased fines and the potential of up to one year’s imprisonment for anyone convicted. The bill, sponsored by Legislators Sarah Anker (D-Mount Sinai), Kara Hahn (D-Setauket), Tom Muratore (RRonkonkoma), Rob Trotta (R-Fort Salonga) and Kate Browning (WF-Shirley), now goes to Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D) for his signature within the next 30 days. Once implemented, maximum fines for illegal dumping of nonconstruction, demolition and hazardous material wastes by a business or corporation will increase to $15,000 from the previous fine of $5,000. The penalty for dumping nonconstruction materials by an individual will remain at $1,000. If an individual is found dumping construction or demolition material, the misdemeanor fine will increase to $10,000 for an individual and $15,000 for a corporation or business. Under the change, both an individual and someone convicted of dumping material on behalf of a commercial entity may be sentenced up to one year in jail. Imposition of the ultimate fine or criminal sentence is within the sentencing court’s discretion. “For far too long, fines associated with illegal dumping were considered just the cost of doing business,” said Hahn, chairwoman both of the Legislature’s Parks & Recreation and Environment, Planning and Agriculture Committees. “For those who choose to pursue greed over the health of the public and our environment, your cost of business has just gotten a lot more expensive. The one-two combination of increased monetary penalties and potential jail time will hopefully give pause to any person or commercial entity that believes these significant fines and the potential loss of freedom is a cost effective business strategy.” Illegal dumping on Long Island has emerged as a serious environmental issue and threat to public health following the discoveries of potentially toxic debris within the Town of Islip’s Roberto Clemente Park, Suffolk County’s West Hills County Park and

a housing development for military veterans in Islandia. In February, New York State’s Department of Environmental Conservation issued approximately 200 tickets for unlawful disposal, operating without a permit and other violations during stings conducted on Long Island and the Hudson Valley that also identified nine dumping sites upstate. “For decades, Suffolk County has worked tirelessly to preserve land in order to protect our environment and groundwater,” Anker said. “Illegal dumping of hazardous materials and construction waste on county property causes harmful chemicals to seep into our water, which negatively affects our health. It is important we do everything in our power to continue to protect our parklands and to ensure that illegal dumping does not occur. By doing so, we are not only preserving the environmental integrity of Suffolk County, but improving the quality of life for all residents.” Trotta called the dumping a crime against the residents of Suffolk County. “I want to make it unprofitable for contractors to dump this material,” he said, “and more importantly, I want them going to jail for this.” Browning added that the parks are vital assets for Suffolk County residents, and one of the core recreational resources available to them. She doesn’t like seeing the destruction of quality of life. Legislature Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory (D-Amityville) agrees, saying it’s an important step to protecting parks, while giving teeth to all legislation recently passed on this quality of life issue. “I applaud legislator Hahn for her hard work toward preventing this serious problem,” Browning said. “Aggressively attacking illegal dumping head on will ensure the sustainability of our parks and preserve one of the many reasons Suffolk County continues to be a great place to live.”

an open Letter to Senator John Flanagan and Parents of young Children in district 2 I was born and raised on Long Island. I played basketball and was an avid Knicks fan. I was also sexually abused for many years by a family member. Because of the limitations in New York law for victims of child sexual abuse I am denied a voice in our State courts. The doors to Justice are locked, and you, Senator Flanagan, hold the keys. I’ve done my homework on the facts about child sexual abuse: 1.

Most child victims are abused by someone they know; a family member, neighbor, teacher, coach, etc.;

2.

The fear of not being believed, or threats of continued abuse prevent victims from reporting these crimes to authorities;

3.

It typically takes many years for victims to face their abuse head on, find emotional strength, and pursue their rights in a court of law; and

4.

When victims cannot legally name their abusers, the sexual perpetrators hide behind the Statute of Limitations and continue to abuse more children.

I’ve also done my homework on your recent voting history: Senator Flanagan, last June, you and your Senate colleagues voted unanimously to amend and extend the statute of limitations in two bills. You acted because you rightly recognized the inadequacy of the existing laws to provide justice to New Yorkers impacted by environmental damages. 1) The Agent Orange bill (S7087) revived time barred causes of action and created a 2-year window for those Vietnam Vets who were denied justice to file their old claims. 2) The Superfund Site bill (S6824) extended the Statute of Limitations and amended the rules giving victims three years from the time of designation by the Feds as a superfund site. I applaud you and your Senate colleagues for taking these important steps. These are reasonable, just and fair laws that give victims a right to justice. Again, I ask you Senator Flanagan, if Vets and other victims of contamination have a right to justice based on a harm caused many, many years ago, why is it that victims of child sexual abuse do not? If you give Vets a revival window, why not victims of child sexual abuse? Why the obvious contradiction? Why justice for some, but not all? I am a mother of five beautiful children, an avid basketball coach and a teacher – I tell all of my children, players and students – if it doesn’t feel right, it isn’t. Well, Senator Flanagan, this isn’t right. You are holding the key to the locked courthouse doors. Let victims of child sexual abuse in. Give them justice. Since you refuse to meet with me Senator Flanagan, I call on you in these pages, to do the right thing. Just as you and your Senate colleagues gave justice to Vets and other victims last June, please give victims of child sexual abuse their justice. Further, I call on all parents of young children and good citizens reading this to demand justice from their leaders, and demand a change in the law – a change that will give victims the opportunity for justice, and in doing so, identify dangerous sexual predators. CaLL Senator FLanagan’S oFFICe today (#631-361-2154) and ask him why he and his Senate colleagues are denying victims of child sexual abuse the opportunity for justice, while allowing those who harm children to hide behind this archaic law. Respectfully, Kathryn Robb Raised in Manhasset, Long Island Paid for by Advocates for New York Justice

LI residents call for federal investigation of red light cameras By Victoria Espinoza victoria@tbrnewspapers.com North Shore residents haven’t given up the fight against the Suffolk County red light camera program, and have now called for a federal investigation. Critics of the cameras claim they endanger citizens and create an adverse effect on driver behavior, leading to an increase in rear-end collisions. Personal injury lawyer David Raimondo, based in Lake Grove, is one of the citizens calling for federal intervention after representing several clients who have suffered injuries — death in one case — resulting from a crash at a red light camera intersection. “It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see how bad this is,” Raimondo said in a phone interview. “As people try to get through the red light they see these lights are really short and think ‘how can I possibly make the turn in time?’ The program has made it much worse.” The lawyer is focused on the cause of the red light accidents and in studying this, has discovered a lack of data Suffolk County is supplying on the program to the public, in its Red Light Safety Program annual report. The most recent report, releasing statistics from 2014, showed that in some areas since the cameras were installed, crashes with injuries have increased by up to 100 percent, rear-end crashes have increased by 42 percent and the yearly average of reported crashes with injury went from 8.7 percent pre-camera installation to 19.3 post installation. The 2014 report also said the county collected $27.5 million in payments and paid $9.5 million to the vendor to operate the program. The net proceeds were cred-

ited to the county’s general fund. Raimondo said he has tried getting the annual report for the past year through the Freedom of Information Act but has been unsuccessful. He pointed out the 2014 study is missing pedestrian-auto and bicycle-auto data, and said the community should be able to view the data from the previous year. “I have several cases where people have been involved with crashes where drivers gunned it to beat the red light, or people jammed their brakes to not go through it,” he said. “You can’t say driver behavior hasn’t been affected by this. It’s horrible — this is nothing more than a tax to raise revenue.” Raimondo represents many voices on Long Island. A Stop the Red Light Camera Facebook page has nearly 5,000 likes, with many posts from residents condemning the cameras. Stephen Ruth, otherwise known as the Red Light Robin Hood, was arrested multiple times for tampering with red light cameras in protest of them, and has also voiced his feelings on the rate of rear-end collisions following the installation of the cameras. Raimondo was also Ruth’s attorney, helping him to a plea deal to avoid jail time for his $85,000 in damages done to red light camera intersections. “I was willing to go to jail from the beginning because I’m sticking up on behalf of those people who don’t have a voice anymore,” Ruth said.

File photos

suffolk county Legislator rob trotta, above, drafted a bill to ban the red light camera program but it didn’t get enough support from the Legislature. Michael McDermott, vice chair of the Suffolk County Libertarian Party, said he’s fought tooth and nail, with no luck, to try and convince the Legislature to suspend the red light camera program, which he believes played a significant role in the death of Nico Signore, a Miller Place 14-year-old who was hit crossing 25A. His family, however, does not think it was the red light, but a green arrow that led to the death of their loved one. Since a recent rally, the Department of Transportation has changed the arrow to remain red when pedestrians enter the crosswalk. “They’re trading our safety and lives for money,” McDermott said. “Too many people are dying and getting hurt and they won’t do anything.”

But it’s not just residents that are concerned. Several government officials have also tried to do away with the program. Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta (R-Fort Salonga) drafted a bill to suspend the county’s program during a public safety committee meeting May 26, but the county’s legislative committee stopped it from coming to fruition. The vote was 5 to 3 against a motion to move the bill to the county Legislature for voting, although nearly 20 residents spoke up against the use of the cameras. The federal government has not responded regarding calls for an investigation. Desirée Keegan and Kevin Redding contributed reporting.

A lesson in sugar, short and sweet (part one: the players) Your turn

By chris zEnyuh I have had the privilege of teaching high school science (biology, chemistry and physics) for the last thirty years. For the last ten years, I’ve had the additional privilege and responsibility of developing and teaching an elective we simply call “Food Science.” It’s not your usual health class dietary guidelines, nor does it rehash the familiar mantras of counting calories and exercising to balance intake. Instead, we study the cultural, historical, scientific, political and economic contexts of our food

system and how that system impacts our environments, both external and internal. This in turn enables students to make much more informed decisions about what they want to put in their bodies. When it comes to sugars, confusion is the name of the game. There are dozens of ingredients that mark the presence of sugars in our food: maltodextrin, dextrose, invert sugar, cane sugar, high fructose corn syrup and starch, to name a few. Regardless of what the food industry calls them, your body sees basically three end products of their digestion: glucose, fructose and galactose. Which ones you eat, and how much, will dictate both their value and their danger to you. You may have heard of three additional sugars — lactose, sucrose and maltose. Lactose is a combination of one glucose and one galactose. Also known as “milk sugar,” lactose is the nemesis of lactose-intolerant individuals who lack sufficient quantities of the enzyme that can digest it. Instead, bacteria that reside in their intestines get to process it, making painful amounts of gas as a by-product. Galactose can be converted to glucose in your body, but most individuals do not consume enough dairy

to make this a source of concern. Maltose is another type of sugar. It is a pairing of two glucose units and is the namesake for maltodextrin, etc. Consuming foods with maltose adds glucose to your diet — worth keeping track of as part of your total glucose consumption. However, the most likely source of sugars in your diet is either sucrose or high fructose corn syrup. Sucrose, known also as table sugar, can be derived from sugar cane (cane sugar) or sugar beets (sugar.) Like lactose and maltose, sucrose is a paired structure, made of one glucose subunit and one fructose subunit. That is what your body absorbs regardless of the source (even organic.) Sparing you the science behind its production, high fructose corn syrup is approximately half glucose, and half fructose too. Regardless of the marketing efforts by the Sugar Association and the Corn Refiners Association to make you believe one is better for you than the other, they end up, metabolically, in a virtual tie. Debating which to consume is a distraction from the consequences of consuming too much of either, or both. The consumption of sugar (the term is legally owned by the Sugar Association as the sole name for sucrose) used to be lim-

ited by the relative expense and difficulty in obtaining it from its tropical source. Now the record levels of corn production in America have made it relatively cheap to produce and distribute sugar’s nearly identical-tasting competitor, high fructose corn syrup. You can find it in soda for sure, but also in pickles, peanut butter, ketchup and pretty much anywhere sugar might be used for additional appeal to consumers. This has paved the way for the combined consumption of these sweeteners to reach more than 150 pounds per year per person in America. This far surpasses the 60 pounds per year considered by some experts to be the maximum amount that can be metabolized without ill consequences including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, fatty liver, cataracts, personality and cognitive dysfunction, some cancers and (by the way) obesity. Tying glucose and fructose consumption to the metabolic consequences noted above requires further discussion. And now, you are properly prepared for those lessons. As we say in Food Science class, “Chow!” Chris Zenyuh is a science teacher at Harborfields High School and has been teaching for 30 years.

protest Continued from page A4 She said she’s particularly troubled by the administration’s overwhelming ignorance of environmental issues, its emphasis on money and the extreme views of Breitbart News. “This is not the America I grew up with, this is not what I want,” she said. “I’m not normally a protester, but I believe we all have to stand up now.” Paul Hart, a Stony Brook resident, said he was there to support democracy. The American people have lost representative government because campaign contributions are now controlled by the

rich, he said, and it’s hard to think about the needs of constituents when they don’t contribute in a way that’s beneficial to a politician’s re-election. “The average person has absolutely no voice in politics anymore,” Hart said. “Before, we had a little bit, but now, we’re being swept aside. One protester referred to Mercer as one small part of a larger picture and expressed concern over a growing alt-right movement throughout the country that prefers an authoritarian government that runs like

a business. “I guess that’s what Trump is all about,” said Port Jefferson resident Jordan Helin. “But we’re seeing what the country looks like when it’s being run like a business, [and it’s scary].” Myrna Gordon, a Port Jefferson resident and member of North Country Peace Group, said her organization has held previous actions against Renaissance Technologies, and was among the first grassroots groups on Long Island to take notice of how entrenched in the White House Mercer and his family

are. According to her, Rebekah Mercer is in many ways more powerful than her father. “We cannot take the focus off [Rebekah Mercer] right now, because she’s become a powerful force in this whole issue of money in politics, buying candidates, everything we see in our government,” she said. Since Robert Mercer is local and lives in our community, Gordon added, it’s time that we showed our strength and our voice regarding what this money is doing to our country.

Students investigated the results of putting a variety of objects in the path of a beam of light. Students were able to describe the effects that different materials have on a beam of light, including reflection, refraction and the creation of shadows and colors.

PersPectives

What Meals on Wheels means to both the volunteers and recipients Your turn

BY John Biasetti Recently, the news media has reported federal budget cuts that included decreased funding for Meals on Wheels programs. This news has produced anxiety for people receiving meals from the program, those who are delivering meals and boards of directors of Meals on Wheels programs. The Three Village Meals on Wheels program was formed in 1983. At that time, people involved with the start-up discussed the funding of the program. A decision was made to seek funding from the community in the area. Solicitations were made, with an excellent response. This method of funding has persisted up to the present time and will continue in the future. No

governmental funding has been requested by our area’s group. The Meals on Wheels program functions with a volunteer board of directors, volunteer drivers and deliverers, and nurse-evaluators. Drivers and their partners (deliverers go out in pairs) are divided into daily groups that pick up the meals at designated locations. This occurs on Mondays through Fridays (no deliveries on Saturday or Sunday.) There are two meals per day (a hot meal for lunch and cold meal for the evening.) These are picked up by 11:15 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and are delivered during the next 30 to 60 minutes. The routes are designated by color. The volunteers who deliver are backed up by substitutes who can be called to go out as a driver or partner when the regular driver cannot make a trip. Those eligible for these meals are persons of any age, those who are homebound, recovering from a hospitalization, having a disability or unable to shop. This service has resulted in a decrease in re-hospitalization, as shown in a study done in 2012 and 2013. The program has benefits for those who receive the meals and also those who deliver the meals. It gives the recipient the opportunity to have contact with someone on a daily basis. It is also beneficial for those of us who deliver the meals. It allows us to enter clients’ homes and help them in an im-

If a person does not answer and has not called the office to cancel a delivery, we would need to stay at that residence until a contact has been made by our office or, if necessary, by requesting assistance from the police or fire department. This is to make sure that the person is safe. My wife Catherine joined Meals on Wheels in the 1990s and served until 2012.

I assisted her at times when I had a day off, until I retired. Thereafter, I became her regular “sidekick” for five years. I found that the people we met during those deliveries were diverse and interesting people. Their sharing stories of their lives with us enriched our lives. Hopefully, the Three Village Meals on Wheels will continue to be funded by our community, so that we can continue to function for decades to come. John Biasetti is a Meals on Wheels volunteer.

Clockwise from above, isabella Costa maintains possession of the ball; Julia Smith moves the ball around the cage; Patricia Werker reaches to make a save on Shannon Brazier’s shot; and Shannon Kavanagh shoots.

Despite push, East Bulls fall to Ward Melville By Bill landon Ward Melville jumped out to a five-goal lead early in the first half, and even after the Smithtown East girls’ lacrosse team battled back to trail by two, the Patriots fired back, securing a 17-11 victory to remain undefeated in Division I April 4. Junior midfielder Shannon Brazier and teammate Kerry McKeever rattled off two early goals, while senior attack Kaitlin Thornton added one of her own for a 5-0 lead just six minutes in. Smithtown East sophomore attack Isabella Costa broke the ice for the Bulls when her shot found its mark for an unassisted goal seven minutes later. Ward Melville head coach Kerri Kilkenny said her team had to press the entire game — knowing it had to after escaping the last matchup with a one-goal win.

With 12 minutes left in the first half, McKeever notched her hat trick goal for a 6-1 advantage. “When we play together like we did at the beginning, we can close it out with a win, but we couldn’t be complacent,” McKeever said. “We worked together, we found the open cutter on transition; having turnovers on the ride starts the attack, so those were really big [because] it got us the ball back on offense.” Costa teamed up with senior co-captain and attack Julia Smith, as each trailed two goals to trail 7-5 with just over nine minutes before the break. The Bulls went a man down with four minutes left, but Ward Melville did too less than a minute later to even the teams. The loss didn’t affect the Patriots though, as Brazier scored her third goal, senior attack Kassidy Rogers-Healion buried her penalty shot and junior attack Kerri Thornton dished one off to sophomore Alexis Reinhardt, who put the team out front 10-5. “Smithtown is definitely a great team — we play well together and we have a really deep bench, so there’s no deviation when we put subs in,” Brazier said. “We’ve all played together since we were young, so we mesh really well together.” Smithtown East senior co-captain Shannon Kavanagh’s stick spoke next, when a foul shot hit the back of the cage in the opening minute of the second half. But again, the Patriots didn’t let the scoring last for long, and went on another tare, scoring four consecutive goals before Costa countered, to cut the deficit to 14-7. Smithtown East head coach Ann Naughton critiqued her team’s performance, saying it was below average. “It’s obviously disappointing, and we’re going to have to learn from it,” she said. “Ward Melville came out and they wanted it more than we did. I always respect them — they’re a really good team so I’m not surprised by them at all.”

With just over nine minutes left, Ward Melville ran the clock before senior attack Hannah Lorenzen scored on a hand off for her fourth goal of the game. “We know that they’re a good team, so we had to get on their hands when they were shooting so they couldn’t get off a great shot,” Lorenzen said. “And that helps our goalie [Samantha Tarpey], who was a big part of our win today.” Tarpey had eight saves on the afternoon. Smithtown East wouldn’t go quietly though, and with time running out found the net four more times. “They always have potential — they’ve given us a run for our money in the past and I just told the girls don’t allow those quick goals to rattle you,” Kilkenny said. “Sometimes they get a couple of quick ones on you and the team will deflate, but the girls stayed on their game.”

The Long Island Sound. Photo from Ryan Madden

The open space that state Assemblyman Steve Englebright is trying to preserve as a park in Shoreham.

Thumbs up for those preserving our land We love seeing green. Our local government officials have been making big strides toward preserving our open space, and we applaud our legislators, town council members and town board members for the fresh air we continue breathing. Recently, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker (D-Mount Sinai) helped preserve a parcel of property adjacent to Cordwood Landing County Park in Miller Place and is currently working on the 10-mile Rails to Trails project, similar to the Setauket-Port Jefferson Station Greenway Trail, which would connect Port Jefferson Station to Wading River. The legislator is also trying to purchase the old Kmart property in Middle Island, with the hopes of turning it into a Field of Dreams similar to Heritage Park in Mount Sinai, on which she also worked. State Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket) is leading a proposal to preserve the Shoreham-Wading River Forest, which houses the Shoreham Nuclear Power Plant and where LIPA is trying to build a solar farm, by turning it into a state park. Anker along with Legislator Kara Hahn (D-Setauket), who is also sponsoring the Rails to Trails project, have increased county fines and are looking into jail time for illegal dumping in our local parks. Huntington Town Supervisor Frank Petrone (D) recently reflected on spearheading the first open space bond act, as well as preserving more than 1,000 acres from development during his over 20-year tenure. These measures preserve the natural beauty of our Island and keep our green space thriving amid new apartment buildings and storefronts. It can be challenging to do, but our government officials’ valiant efforts have been met with vast approval, and we side with those voices. These projects create formal and informal sport and recreation, preserve the natural environment, aid in the provision of green space and even urban stormwater management and connect our communities.

Supporting the Long Island Sound I strongly support Congressman Lee Zeldin’s call for Congress to ensure continued funding for the Long Island Sound and National Estuary Program in the upcoming appropriation vote, as detailed in a March 23 story titled “Zeldin calls for Long Island Sound, Estuary Program funding.”

Last year, $26 million was secured for the National Estuary Program, but $10 million that was supposed to be earmarked for the Long Island Sound was not approved by the Senate. We need these programs and the funds they provide to protect the Long Island Sound and Peconic

Bay from threats such as nitrogen, algae blooms, flooding and wetlands loss. I appreciate Congressman Zeldin’s support of these vital programs.

Ed Romaine Brookhaven Town Supervisor

Zeldin is no environmentalist The very same day a letter from Rep. Zeldin appeared in this newspaper touting himself as a defender of the EPA Long Island Sound Study, he was voting in Congress to cripple the reliance of the EPA on qualified scientists not paid by industry. Talk about irony! The bill in question, H.R. 1431, makes it much more difficult for scientists with academic credentials to serve on the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), which guides EPA rule-making, and also makes it easier to pack the SAB with industry mouthpieces. Rep. Zeldin seems to think industry-financed figures are preferable to impartial scientists in guiding EPA decisionmaking. There’s no point writing letters pleading with Scott Pruitt not to axe the Long Island Sound Study while helping him sabotage the core mission of the EPA, namely science-driven protection of the environment. More generally, Rep. Zeldin doesn’t seem to understand that what happens outside the 1st

CD matters inside the 1st CD. Human-caused global warming is a worldwide problem. It knows no boundaries. When lobsters die off or flooding increases or algal blooms surge or estuary eco-systems are damaged here on Long Island, we are suffering the consequences of it. And this is only the beginning. Rep. Zeldin has a long string of anti-environmental votes. That’s why he’s rated the worst congressman in New York by the League of Conservation Voters. He’s voted to allow oil and gas companies operating on public lands to vent or flare instead of capture methane, which is 30 times worse than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. He’s voted to nullify the stream protection rule, encouraging more coal production by permitting coal companies to dump toxic waste into waterways. He’s voted in favor of allowing new surveys exploring for oil and gas in the Atlantic Ocean. He’s voted to block the EPA from implementing its Methane Pollution

Standard. He’s voted for across the board cuts in funding for EPA and Interior Department conservation programs except where specifically prohibited by law. There are plenty more, but you get the idea. Trump claimed global warming was a hoax perpetrated by China, and Zeldin had no problem supporting him, even in the GOP primary. Now that he’s got his wish and Trump is president, it’s no use crying about EPA program cuts to Scott Pruitt, a Trump appointee who’s had a long-standing goal of gutting the EPA. And it’s no use crying if the National Estuary Program is thrown on the garbage heap by the Trump administration along with all the other “useless” programs like Meals on Wheels or the National Endowment for the Arts. With his voting record and his support for Trump, Rep. Zeldin must take us for fools to believe that he cares about the environment.

e’s cold and he wants to go home. He has to go to the bathroom and he can’t stand here another minute. He’s way too hot under all that equipment and he wants to go swim somewhere. Yes, these are just some of the sinister motives often attributed to umpires, referees or officials at games, as coaches and parents try to explain a call that they clearly saw the other way. Yet if you ask most of the parents on the other team, including By Daniel Dunaief those who seem like eminently reasonable people, they would tell you that

D. None of the above

they thought the umpire made the right call. Here we are again, with Little League baseball underway and with championship T-shirts, sweatshirts and trophies at stake. Standing between the starting point for all those teams and the ultimate glory are the other teams, the weather which forces endless makeup games, huge parties that take half the team from a scheduled game and, of course, the umpires. I have tremendous sympathy for those umpires because I was one decades ago. No, I didn’t call Derek Jeter out or ring up Alex Rodriguez. My brother and I signed up to umpire Little League games. In several games, batter after batter would get into a full count. Invariably the hitter would take a pitch that was somewhere between the outside corner and just outside. With every eye on the field staring at me, I had to make a difficult choice. Yes, of course, there is a strike zone, and in the strike zone is a

strike and outside the zone is a ball, but what if the ball is squeezing along the edge of the plate, near the bottom of the strike zone? I aimed for consistency, but I also became involved in “make good” calls. I’d call a borderline strike a ball on the first batter, disappointing the pitcher and catcher, and then I’d call the next borderline strike a strike, deflating the hitter and his teammates. Numerous pitches were so close that I knew the groans would come even before my arm signaled for the hitter to go to first or return to the bench. Once, before a game, a coach came up to me and told me that he was a bit of a hothead and that I should feel free to eject him from the game.

Maybe, as we push our lawn chairs into the cars on our way to another game, we should remember that the umpire isn’t out to get anyone. The official is just trying to do his or her best to make sure both teams have an equal opportunity to succeed.
