TOWN Smithtown finishes updates to 3 parks $62K under budget More than a dozen excited children climbed over a Nesconset playground Monday afternoon, as families took in the park’s first upgrade in more than two decades. Town of Smithtown officials celebrated the completion of $1.3 million in upgrades to three town-owned parks this week, which also came in approximately $62,000 under budget. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at Joseph Andreoli Park in Nesconest July 9, followed by a celebration for Gaynor and Veterans Memorial parks in St. James held July 10. “There is no more important mission we can do than to build parks like this for the children who are growing up here,” Supervisor Ed Wehrheim (R) said. “It’s been a long time coming.” Joseph Andreoli Park, commonly referred to as Gibbs Pond park, received two new playgrounds. For older children, there are five different slides, several climbing obstacles and a swing set. A second area for younger children ages 2 to 5 consists of several tiny houses they go inside with interactive features. “It’s visually appealing,” Nesconset resident Shannon Cooley,said, as she watched her 3-year-old daughter play. “It’s colorful, not faded, and everything feels inviting and welcoming.” Cooley said her favorite part of the

Joseph Andreoli Park, off Gibbs Pond Road in Nesconset, now has a separate playground for children ages 2 to 5. renovations are the separate play areas created for young children and the new Classic Turf, a synthetic grasslike “shag rug” that replaced the former wood chips. Both Cooley and Nesconset resident Morgan Tavis said they appreciated the modern, clean look, but if they had one criticism of the design, it would be a lack of shaded areas. “A shaded area for respite would make this into a full day activity,” Tavis said. Wehrheim said there will be further

improvements made at the Gibbs Pond park. Boy Scout Troop 566 has offered to build benches that will be installed by the town, according to the supervisor, and renovations tomake the bathrooms handicapped accessible are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019. Shaded canopies will be installed over the playground’s slides, according to town spokeswoman Nicole Garguilo, to prevent them from becoming heated and potentially burning children.

“This is the first of many,” Wehrheim said, indicating more park renovations are in the works for 2019. “We made a commitment when we got elected, one of those commitments was to renovate and bring our parks into the future so I am very pleased and honored this afternoon to tell you we have kept that campaign promise.” Both Gaynor Park and Veterans Memorial Park in St. James have received similar upgrades, according to Smithtown Parks Maintenance Director Joseph Arico. Gaynor Park has received a similar new playground set and field upgrades. The existing tennis courts at Gaynor were fully resurfaced and the basketball court was enlarged from a half court to full regulation size. Veterans Memorial Park, located off Moriches Road, had more recently received upgrades to its sports fields. Roughly $300,000 was spent to install a new playground set along with a new artificial grass surface and a resurfacing of the water park playground to improve safety, according to Arico. Councilman Tom Lohmann (R), who served as the town board’s liaison to the parks department on the project, voiced his approval of the final product. “We are putting money back where it belongs in our parks, beaches and infrastructure so that we, the residents, have a nice place to bring our children, grandchildren and enjoy this beautiful town,” Lohmann said.

Morad Awadallah MD, RPVI

Director, Vascular Surgery Director, Wound Healing Center Director, Hyperbaric Medicine St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center

According to the American Heart Association, stroke remains a leading cause of death in the United States. While important advancements have resulted in stroke mortality declining from the third most common killer to the fourth, there are important regional, racial, and gender disparities that exist. In many communities, stroke is the leading cause of death, especially among men. Most commonly, there are no warning signs leading up to a stroke; once symptoms arise, the length of time for treatment to commence is the most important indicator of survival. Therefore, public education can lead to a further reduction in mortality. Aortic aneurysms are another less common, but equally deadly, medical condition that disproportionally affect men. An aneurysm occurs when the main blood vessel supplying organs and limbs become abnormally large. As it grows it can rupture, and this almost always results in death.

Complimentary

A stroke and an aortic aneurysm have one thing in common; they are both silent killers. Are you at risk?

MEN’S HEALTH EVENT

What is an aortic aneurysm? A. The aorta is the main blood vessel in your body. It runs from the heart to the legs, and along the way it provides blood to all the major organs. When the diameter of the aorta grows to be 1.5 times its normal size, we consider this abnormal.

STROKE & AORTIC ANEURYSM Q&A Dinner

Why is growth of the diameter of a blood vessel a problem, and how is it treated? A. Like a balloon inflating, as the diameter of a blood vessel grows, it weakens. This weakening continues until the blood vessel wall reaches a critical wall tension, and it ruptures. A rupture means the blood in your arteries will drain into the abdominal cavity. Unfortunately, most patients will not survive long enough to reach a hospital, which is why screening at-risk patients is the best way to decrease mortality. The two strongest risk factors are a history of smoking, or a family history of aneurysms. Today, most aneurysms are treated with minimally invasive surgery. Two small punctures are done in the groin; stents are then used to seal the aneurysm and eliminate the risk of rupture. Most patients are discharged from the hospital the next day. Sometimes when your doctor finds an aneurysm that is on the smaller size, it can be monitored with a yearly sonogram to ensure it doesn’t grow to a size that would put you at risk of rupture.

Thursday, July 26th Old Street Pub Smithtown, NY 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM Registration required. To register, please call

(631) 870-3444 First come, first serve. Please register early.

What exactly is stroke? A. When a portion of the brain loses its blood supply and therefore lacks oxygen, it’s considered a stroke. This normally happens because a plaque or clot, known as an embolism, will travel to the brain and disrupt blood flow. The two most common locations where these emboli originate are the carotid arteries in your neck, and the heart.

Who is most at risk for a stroke? And how does it present? A. The most common risks factors are patients with a history of smoking, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, and patients with arterial fibrillation. Presentations are variable and may include facial asymmetry, vision changes, speech difficulty, and weakness on either the right or left side of the body.

How will my doctor treat me to prevent a stroke? How is a stroke treated?

157876

A. Your doctor can help with lifestyle modifications, including weight loss and improved control of blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol. Treatments may include the administration of very powerful clot busters. However, these medications can only be given very soon after the onset of symptoms which is why seeking immediate medical treatment is so important.

TOWN RON PACCHIANA

BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

A Commack street now bears the name of a U.S. Marine who lost his life in 2010 to the battle against post-traumatic stress disorder. Town of Smithtown officials, local veterans groups and the Blanco family gathered July 1 on Wichard Boulevard in Commack to watch the unveiling of the sign dedicating a portion of roadway in memory of Lance Corporal Michael E. Blanco. It was the street where Blanco grew up. “It means to us that every time someone looks at that sign, they’ll remember however Michael touched their lives,” Blanco’s sister, Nicole Blanco-Abbate, said. Those who knew Blanco recalled him as a selfless man who wouldn’t hesitate to do things for others. Blanco’s father, Bruce, remembered how when his son attended high school the young man asked for more lunch money, commenting that he was “a growing boy.” Later, he learned Blanco was giving that extra money anonymously to the kids who couldn’t afford lunch. “My son was always known as the protector — he was the one who came out of nowhere to help people,” Blanco’s father said. “I get constant phone calls from his friends of what he’s done to help them. He stood up for people who couldn’t stand up for themselves.” The Blanco family said they were humbled by the nearly 100 people who showed up to the ceremony at the intersection of Wichard Boulevard and Philson Court in support, including Suffolk County officials, the American Legion Ladies Post 1244, Smithtown and Nesconset fire departments, AM Vets, the Patriot Guard Riders, Missing in America Project, Veterans for Freedom, American Legion riders and American Legion Auxiliary Greenlawn Chapter 1244. “There were so many people there, from small kids all the way to veterans in their 70s and 80s,” Suffolk County Legislator Leslie Kennedy (R-Nesconset) said. “This type of dedication leads to more acceptance. It shows there has to be something done about soldiers with PTSD.” In September 2017, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs released a report on suicides among veterans of the armed services based on 55 million records dating from 1979 to 2014. It found that an average of 20 veterans die from suicide every day. PTSD is the leading cause of death for veterans and military service members. “He still was a soldier — he still was a veteran,” Blanco’s mother, Donna, said. “With this sign, we are bringing awareness to the 22 veterans who die every day from PTSD.” Both of Blanco’s parents agreed that this dedication does much to help the community remember their son. “The worst fear a mother has when a son dies is that he won’t be remembered,” Blanco’s mother said. “Now I know my son will forever be memorialized and he will always be remembered.” Bruce Blanco said he became involved with the American Legion Riders Chapter 1244 after his son passed away, and he is now leading them as their president. Since then, the riders have been involved in many veterans memorials and events all around the Huntington and Smithtown areas. The chapter also participates in the Missing in America Project that tries to give proper military funerals to those veterans who died without family or who remain unremembered. “One of the worst things for anyone is to ever be forgotten,” Blanco’s father said. “Everything throughout Smithtown is a remembrance for us, and this sign just adds to it.”

At left, “LCpl Michael E. Blanco” road sign is in memory of late U.S. Marine Michael Blanco, whose family is pictured above.

Man gets 18 years for sexual abuse of children in Commack

BY SARA-MEGAN WALSH SARA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Suffolk County District Attorney Tim Sini (D) announced a former Commack babysitter will face 18 years in jail after admitting to committing sexual crimes against three children in his care between 2009 and 2014. Benjamin Fielman, 27, a current resident of Century, Florida, pleaded guilty to 27 counts of sexual misconduct May 24 in First District Court in Central Islip. He was sentenced June 29 by Suffolk Judge Barbara Kahn to 18 years in prison followed by 20 years of supervision. “This defendant used his position of trust and guardianship to victimize young children for his own sick sexual gratification,” Sini said. “While there is no amount of jail time that can alleviated the trauma he caused his victims, today’s sentence is a significant step toward holding him accountable for his depraved actions and preventing more children from having to suffer at the hands of this individual.” Suffolk police worked in cooperation with the Florida state attorney’s office since 2014 to bring Fielman back to Long Island to face criminal charges for his actions. Fielman worked as an assistant teacher at Suffolk Y Jewish Community Center in Commack for four years, from 2008 to 2011, and as a private babysitter, not related to any service or agency. During this time, Fielman sexually abused three unrelated boys ranging in age from 7 to 11 and was allegedly taking sexually explicit photos and videos, according to officials. Florida state authorities executed a search warrant on Fielman’s home after he was arrested in 2014, according to Sini, where

Benjamin Fielman they found evidence of him engaging in sexual contact with minors. He was also in possession of child pornography, police said. Florida authorities determined the materials had originated in Suffolk. They contacted Suffolk County Police Department’s computer crimes unit, which investigated the origin of the images and videos through the files’ metadata and was able to identify the victims. The charges Fieldman pled guilty to include two counts of first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, two counts of second-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, 11 counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child, 11 counts of using a child in a sexual performance and endangering the welfare of a child. He is currently serving a 10-year sentence in Florida, where he pled guilty to felony sex crimes involving children in June 2017. Fielman will serve the two sentences concurrently.

Nesconset man arrested for threatening Zeldin supporter SCPD

BY SARA-MEGAN WALSH SARA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM A Nesconset man was arrested for allegedly making a terroristic threat against a campaign worker at U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin’s (R-Shirley) headquarters July 6, according to Suffolk County police. Martin Astrof was arrested Friday after he allegedly threatened to kill one of Zeldin’s supporters and those who support President Donald Trump (R). Astrof went to Zeldin’s campaign headquarters on Terry Road in Smithtown and became irate with a campaign worker, identified by Zeldin’s office as Donato Panico, at approximately 11:15 a.m., police said. After allegedly threatening to kill Panico and other supporters, Astrof backed his car up in an aggressive manner nearly striking the campaign worker, according to police. “Donato Panico is an exceptional citizen who has dedicated his life to serving our law enforcement and nation’s veterans,” Zeldin said. “He should never have been targeted like this today for his support of a political candidate.” Astrof, 75, allegedly fled the scene and was arrested a short time later in front of his home in Nesconset. He was charged with one felony count of making a terrorist threat and second-degree reckless endangerment. “In the United States of America, political scores are settled at the ballot box, not by try-

The SEQRA “hard look” requires that the EIS must assume this area will be paved. Lot 4: Hotel. It notes this hotel will serve SBU, however, the university recently completed construction of a hotel and conference space. The EIS needs to address the impact the proposed development will have on existing hotel, restaurant and conference facilities in the surrounding area. Lots 7 and 8: 220 assisted-living units, notes a “synergy” with the university Medical Center. The EIS should examine the capacity of the SBU Medical Center to handle projected medical needs from 220 assisted-living units. Lot 9: Commonly owned and operated lot. The lot description currently leads with a description of this area as open space. The description needs to specify how much is open space and how much of the lot area is the road network, how much is the wastewater treatment plant and how much is drainage. The EIS must fully address drainage, including reasonably anticipated changes to precipitation patterns and the need for additional drainage capacity that accounts for state climate change projections. The EIS must address the impact to the nature and character of the area, including addressing impacts to the current rural nature and presence of Avalon Park, an important community resource, adjacent to the project site. The EIS must fully address existing and reasonably anticipated traffic impacts on the surrounding roadways, and on the nature and character of the area. The EIS must address the increases in mass loading of nutrients and contaminants including pharmaceuticals that will occur to

It is not clear why the eminent domain taking from 2005 would be discussed in the Project Introduction and Location — it should be addressed in site history.

The Fiscal and Economic section must include and address the demand build out will place on services, and include any government subsidies or relief of taxes the applicant will seek. The Historic and Cultural Resources section notes that the lack of anticipated impacts to historical properties will be discussed. This infers that prior to the analysis in the EIS, the applicant has reached a foregone conclusion on this aspect of the EIS. It is improper for such language to be in a draft scoping document. An EIS is required to analyze impacts and the document will be deficient if it fails to accomplish this. The Summary of Alternatives section should not be a summary. Each alternative should be fully described in its own chapter for ease of comparison. Information pertaining to each alternative should be contained within the chapter for the alternative and not spread throughout the EIS. The public acquisition alternative is not the same as “no action.” The property is currently in private ownership, and there are many differences between no action and public acquisition. Public acquisition should be fully explored as an alternative with the attendant public benefits including public access, recreation, aesthetics and enjoyment. The Town of Brookhaven requests and appreciates, as an interested/involved agency, to be notified regarding any and all information related to this property.

William’s Warriors prepares to battle cancer in Smithtown A Smithtown bar will take center stage in the fight against pediatric brain cancer this weekend. William’s Warriors, a nonprofit supporting the fight against pediatric brain cancer, is hosting a benefit concert featuring the singer -songwriter, Jessica Allossery, at Croxley’s Ale House, 155 W. Main St., Smithtown on Sunday, July 15, at 6 p.m. The event will be held to honor of Blue Point resident William Schultz, who was diagnosed with medulloblastoma. It is an aggressive form of brain cancer that spreads through the cerebrospinal fluid, allowing it to metastasize quickly. William later died at age 7 due to complications related to high-dose chemotherapy with stem cell rescue. William’s parents, Margaret and Jim Schultz, have vowed to do anything they can to raise money to fight this debilitating form of pediatric cancer. William’s Warriors was originally started by friends and family of the Schultzes, to help support them financially while their son was receiving treatment, but their cause has evolved since William’s passing. William’s

Superhero Fund, a division of the nonprofit named after William’s love for superheroes like Batman and Superman, helps achieve this goal by raising money to support pediatric brain cancer research. Allossery, an indie singer and acoustic guitarist from Canada, travels throughout the United States and her home country performing shows large and small. She was more than willing to travel to Long Island to perform in the benefit. “We are all touched by cancer in one way or another,” Allossery said. “So many of us have family members, friends or loved ones who have suffered through cancer, and some of us have even been on the cancer battlefield ourselves.” Allossery is known for being featured on the popular Coffee House station on Sirius XM radio. She is passionate about the cause that William’s Warriors fights for every single day. “It is so important to spread the message that although this illness is prevalent in our world today, we are all fighting it together,” the singer said. Although William’s Warriors is a fairly new organization, it has organized multiple

H2M study: $7 to $10M price tag for St. James sewers The Town of Smithtown now knows it faces an estimated price tag of $7 to $10 million to bring St. James sewage systems into the modern era. Smithtown officials are poring over the evaluation of the St. James Sewer District prepared by Melville-based H2M Architects & Engineers where they broke down the projected costs of installing dry sewer mains and pump stations needed to build a sewer district for the Lake Avenue business district. In its report dated June 8, H2M projected that installing sewers and a force main at the intersection of Lake Avenue and Route 25A would cost approximately $1.78 million, including funds for curb-to-curb roadway restoration, if undertaken in 2020. The engineers considered two different options for providing sewers to 18 properties along North Country Road/Route 25A from the Long Island Railroad track near Edgewood Avenue east to Clinton Avenue. The first method would cost approximately $3.8 million to install gravity sewers, a force main and pump station needed to reach a sewage treatment plant but would not provide for full road restoration. A second design would cost the town roughly $6.2 million with road restoration costs included. “Now that they gave us these cost estimates, we’ve already proceeded with sending

An aerial map of Gyrodyne’s proposed Flowerfield subdivision indicating the site of the sewage treatment plant. those to state Sen. [John] Flanagan’s office to get us grant funding to put in sewer lines along Lake Avenue and pay for the pump station,” town spokeswoman Nicole Garguilo said. Smithtown officials are hoping Flanagan (R-East Northport) can secure the funding through New York State’s Clean Water Infrastructure Act, signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) in April 2017, which provides money for drinking water infrastructure and groundwater protection. The estimated cost for St. James Sewer District are calculated on the premise that Gyrodyne, LLC will build a sewage treatment plan with the capacity to accommodate neigh-

boring Lake Avenue businesses. Smithtown Supervisor Ed Wehrheim (R) first opened conversations with Gyrodyne about considering such a move earlier this spring. “We continue to be supportive of Supervisor Wehrheim’s vision for Smithtown, as well as the hamlet of St. James,” Gary Fitlin, CEO and president of Gyrodyne said. “Our plans include a sewage treatment plant, which is tremendously beneficial to the community versus traditional cesspools.” Gyrodyne announced its intentions to work with the Town of Smithtown to its shareholders on June 29 calling it “an opportunity to create added value for both

the company and the towns of Smithtown and Brookhaven.” It has hired Wooburybased Cameron Engineering & Associates to redesign its proposed sewage treatment plant to handle the plans it has for Flowerfield property and have excess capacity to service the business district of St. James. Wehrheim said hearing Gyrodyne is sharing these intentions with its investors is positive news for St. James business owners and Smithtown. “I think it’s great,” the supervisor said. “The fact they are selling it to their shareholders and having their engineers look at it means they are serious about doing it.”

SPORTS DESIREE KEEGAN

Clockwise from top left, Suffolk’s allstars walk off the field; Dave Argenzio crosses home; Argenzio congratulates a fellow all-star; Ed Carney takes a swing; Tim Rocklein makes contact; and Suffolk celebrates a big play.

Suffolk seniors best Nassau on softball field BY DESIRÉE KEEGAN The fireworks came a day late for a group of Suffolk senior softball players. A thriller ensued in a battle between some of Long Island’s best 65 and older softball players. Down 7-6 in the bottom of the ninth inning, Tim Rocklein smacked a pitch to right field with runners on first and second with no outs, and Ed Carney hit a sacrifice fly to score Dave Argenzio in a walk-off, 8-7 thriller as Suffolk edged Nassau in the first-ever Super Seniors AllStar game July 5. “It got closer and closer, and why get a lead early when you can get the lead and go home?” head coach Paul Killian said, laughing. “I was losing so much sleep afraid that, A, it was going to rain, and, B, it wouldn’t turn out right. I couldn’t be happier with the way it ended.” Rocklein’s game-tying single served as a bit of redemption. The Islip Terrace resident had made back-to-back errors in a four-run second inning for Nassau. “It’s really wonderful how the team came through at the end,” said Rocklein, a former student of Killian’s at St. John the Baptist Diocesan High School in West Islip. “It was a team effort. We all won.” The Suffolk offensive onslaught was contagious. Down 6-1 heading into the bottom of the seventh, base hits by John Carmichael and Carney set up an RBI-single for Louis Re. Later in the inning, Mike Cavanagh hit an in-the-park bases-clearing

home run to pull Suffolk within one, 6-5. “We were just hoping to be competitive,” Cavanagh said. “I flew out the first two times, so it felt great to come through with a hit.” Rocklein said he saw the hit a bit differently. “You could feel everyone’s spirits go from 20 to 190,” he said, grinning from ear to ear. “It’s an emotional game. We didn’t give up. We were all there for each other, and in the end, we prevailed.” Assistant coach Victor Scalone, of Sound Beach, said he was impressed by his team, especially considering the Nassau team had three more full league teams to choose from when assembling its All-Star roster. Suffolk pulled off three double plays, with middle infielder Fred Taal helping turn two of them to John Petraglia at first. Catcher Tony Laino, who led off the bottom of the ninth with a single, helped complete the other, which ended a Nassau scoring threat. Tom Gomez went the distance on the mound, also collecting two hits. “We’re all older players, and we just wanted to look respectable in this game,” Scalone said. “We’ll be talking about this for a long time.” The assistant coach pointed to the home run by Cavanagh as having ignited the team. Killian, a Holbrook resident, said he’s in awe of what the sport can do for him and his players. “I feel like I’m 16 again,” he said. “The fireworks were a day delayed, but they’re here.”

Letters to the editor GREG CATALANO

More enforcement needed with fireworks

The Fourth of July may be over but, as many Long Islanders know, the firework shows have just begun. Despite New York State and Suffolk County laws prohibiting the use of pyrotechnics without a license, and a recent declaration by Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D) of a zero-tolerance policy on fireworks, many residents get a hold of them and use them anyway on and around the holiday. We’ve all been there. The Fourth of July falls on a weekday, we have to work the next day and out of nowhere ... BOOM, a whistle and the sky lights up. The displays go on for hours even though we don’t live near a venue that has hired the Gruccis. On random summer nights, unexpected fireworks wake babies up and upset pets at the most inconvenient times. Recently, the county banned sparkling devices — sparklers and fountains — despite the state deeming them legal. The change left us wondering how Suffolk officials can impose a new law when all summer long it’s apparent that prior laws prohibiting fireworks from being purchased or used by individuals in their neighborhoods aren’t enforced. Firecrackers, ground spinners, Roman candles, bottle rockets, cherry bombs and more have become summer staples. There are many reasons besides being a public nuisance that the laws need to be enforced. Untrained individuals using fireworks put themselves in harm’s way, as local hospital emergency rooms fill up with those with burned or missing fingers or damaged eyes. There are plenty of people who are minding their own business in their backyard when they get hit with the ash of fireworks or pyrotechnics destroy property by landing on roofs, leaving holes in lawns or burnt marks on fences. There are also veterans who, when they hear fireworks, are reminded of traumatic memories of fighting on battlefields with gunfire and bombs going off around them. Many who have served in the military suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, something firework aficionados need to be mindful of should a neighbor be afflicted. While some who suffer from PTSD alert their neighbors by posting signs on their lawns asking for their consideration, should it really be their responsibility? Before Suffolk tries to stop people from holding a stick that sparkles, police officers need to enforce the laws that are already on the books. The warnings about zero tolerance sound great, but as a TBR News Media reporter sent out July Fourth to get a feel for the breadth of illegal fireworks in the community can attest, the skies were lit up far and wide. Considering the penalty fees attached to illegal use of fireworks — up to $500 for the use of just a sparkling device — the county could rake in a nice amount of money if they cracked down, not just on the Fourth of July but year round. Residents can play a part in protecting their fellow citizens, too. Don’t be afraid to speak up when you see a police car in your neighborhood after hearing or seeing fireworks. Or, before it gets to that point, talk with your friends and family who may be setting off fireworks at home and tell them it isn’t the best idea. To be clear: We’re not against having a good time and fully embracing the celebration of our country’s independence. But fireworks belong in the hands of professionals, not in the mitts of your average citizen two doors down.

Why Zeldin is wrong about drug prices

On June 28, a letter by U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) titled “Zeldin on reducing drug prices” appeared in this paper filled with misinformation about drug prices and Medicare. He seems to confuse Medicare Part D with Medicare Part B, which is pretty bad for a congressman who’s supposed to know the law and the issues. He writes that Part D adds 6 percent to the price of drugs and that it “forces” patients to cover 20 percent of the cost. Both are untrue. There is no 6 percent add-on or 20 percent copay in Medicare Part D. The copay is complicated; it depends on your plan, whether you select a generic, “preferred” or brand name drug and on how much you’ve already spent in the current year. For many generics on many plans it’s zero. Zeldin is also wrong about Medicare Part D negotiating directly with doctors. It’s entirely administered by private health insurance companies; doctors have no role in negotiating prices.

With all this misinformation it’s no wonder Zeldin is totally wrong about why drug prices in America are so much higher than in Canada or Europe. Why does Medicare lack negotiating ability, as he puts it? It’s simple: It’s intentional. Part D, enacted by a Republican Congress and signed by President George W. Bush, explicitly blocks Medicare from negotiating drug prices, and it also blocks re-importation from other countries. This was the payoff of intense lobbying by the drug industry interest group Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America when the law was enacted. U.S. Rep. Billy Tauzin (RLA), who steered Part D through Congress, received nearly $1 million in campaign funding from PhRMA in 2001 to 2004. Which was chump change compared to the $2 million annual salary he collected upon retiring from Congress shortly thereafter and being hired as president and CEO of PhRMA. The “free market” Medicare Part D law was designed and paid

for by the drug and health insurance industries. Its intention was to be good for business, not to make drugs affordable. If Zeldin was truly interested in lowering drug prices instead of misinforming his constituents, he’d demand Medicare immediately be allowed to negotiate prices with drug companies, bringing us in line with every other advanced country on Earth. Or he’d demand that Americans be allowed to purchase drugs from Canada or anywhere else in the world. He wouldn’t be spreading false information that overregulation is the problem. Last year, he touted and voted for the American Health Care Act of 2017, which did precisely nothing to rein in drug costs and slashed $487 billion from Medicare, which heavily supports Part D pricing to consumers. Zeldin still doesn’t get it: Decent and affordable health care is a right, not a privilege reserved only for those fortunate enough to be able to pay.

David Friedman St. James

Cuomo’s hate for Trump is pure hypocrisy New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is facing a serious challenge from the left from Cynthia Nixon in this year’s Democratic primary. The party bosses are concerned enough that they have called in big national figures to endorse Cuomo, including getting the DNC chairman, Tom Perez, to break his pledge to stay out of primary races. At the local level, here on Long Island, battle lines are being drawn, with numerous progressive, grassroots groups endorsing Nixon and the party apparatus backing Cuomo. In backing Cuomo, the party bosses have engaged in clear hypocrisy, ignoring many of the arguments that they used to support Hillary Clinton (D) in 2016 and to resist now President Donald Trump (R). Throughout the 2015-16 primary and general election, voters were repeatedly told that it was time for Clinton because it was time for a female president. Those who failed to support her, despite very real and serious policy objections, were often accused of sexism. Madeleine Albright, former U.S. secretary of state for President Bill Clinton, famously quipped at one of Clinton’s rallies that, “There is a special place in hell for women who do not support other women.” Yet now, when we have a major female contender for the

governor’s office with a progressive record, the party makes no such claims about the possibility of New York’s first female governor. Nixon and her supporters have been maligned, and one prominent Cuomo supporter from New York City even went so far as calling Nixon an “unqualified lesbian.” No doubt, Albright will be here any minute to defend Nixon. Of course, that won’t happen. History has shown that claims of sexism are only allowed to be used to fend off progressive challengers to the party’s picks and never the other way around. America is clearly long overdo for a female president. But isn’t New York also long overdo for a female governor? Another example of hypocrisy comes from the refusal to recognize that several of the key characteristics that Democrats hate about Trump are clearly present in Cuomo. He is known for a bullying mentality, most recently displayed in his angry backlash to the Working Families Party choosing to endorse Nixon over him. Like Trump, Cuomo’s entire career is based on the fact that his father was very successful, opening all sorts of doors for him. Does anyone seriously think that Andrew Cuomo would be governor if his last name wasn’t Cuomo? The most troubling similarity is

the way in which they flaunt their corruption. While Democrats are outraged by Trump’s decision to fire FBI director James Comey and potentially obstruct justice in several ways, few have been willing to call out Cuomo’s disgraceful decision to disband the Committee for Public Corruption, which he had created. New York is known as one of the most corrupt state governments in the nation; but when the commission began to investigate his actions, Cuomo simply ended the commission. This is truly outrageous behavior that should have every Democrat up in arms. Instead, the party has continued to support him fully. There are some huge differences between Trump and Cuomo, and one can obviously support Cuomo while despising Trump based on those differences. But those who attack Trump for the specific failings listed above while absolutely ignoring those same failings in Cuomo are engaging in rank, partisan hypocrisy. This is the kind of behavior that has led so many Americans to reject the political parties, distrust our institutions and argue that all politicians are crooks. We must do better.

Giving Trump ‘credit’ for cleaning up EPA mess

T

he president of the United States is taking full credit for the relief those crazy leftist environmental groups are feeling in response to the resignation of the latest misunderstood and much maligned member of his cabinet, Scott Pruitt. You see, President Donald Trump knew that Pruitt would do his bidding, gutting unnecessary government regulations designed to protect the water, air and food that Americans and, indeed, others on the planet need on basis. By Daniel Dunaief a daily He knew Pruitt would do everything he asked, and more. It’s like the old Stalin philosophy. You remember that ruthless Soviet Union dictator,

D. None of the above

right? He never wanted any of his tank commanders to be too powerful because he didn’t want their leader taking over. So, he chose Pruitt knowing that he’d do what Trump wanted and then would become so enmeshed in the world he tried to help — lobbyists, coal interests, insecticide manufacturers — that he would eventually cause harm to himself and his political aspirations. Trump is, rightfully, taking full credit for the resignation of a man he supported when it was expedient to do so and that he needed to cut loose when the combination of foibles and follies entered the public realm. Sure, some nasty journalists may have quoted unnamed sources who shared questionable details about Pruitt’s spending habits, his requests for football tickets, his security detail and his desire to get his wife a job. Ultimately, it was Trump who made the call, putting the thorn in the side of the environmental groups

and then pulling it out ever so quickly and gracefully. Well, maybe it wasn’t all that quick. Pruitt lasted far longer in Washington than even members of the “Trump Party” — that’s the new name of the group formerly known as the Republican Party — might have wanted. But, hey, the more people who found Pruitt’s actions and decisions questionable, the greater the relief when he was finally removed from office. OK, so technically the guy resigned, which means he walked out of the seat of power and into an enormous gas-guzzling sport utility vehicle. But, seriously, does anyone believe Pruitt thought he blew it on his own? No, no, people, wake up. News that the environmental groups all thought was good because they imagined that the EPA might return to its mandate of protecting the environment and the people, animals and trees living here came courtesy of His Truly: President Trump.

Yes, of course, you can thank him for taking nuclear weapons out of the hands of the North Koreans, and you can express your appreciation for the incredibly kind way he pulled back from a zero-tolerance policy he established because of laws the Democrats won’t fix, but don’t forget to give credit where credit is due. You see, if the president had never tapped Pruitt, who built his career attacking the henhouse that was the EPA from his home in Oklahoma, the greenie groups would never be able to celebrate his removal. No, it’s a total credit to Trump that the reality TV show that was the Pruitt era at the EPA has been canceled. So, take your time, think of the right words and make sure to thank the man in charge of the world for choosing the right man at the right time and then letting that man walk off into a sunset enhanced by all the pollution-generated particulates he helped put there.

Moe Berg: ‘I’d rather be a ballplayer than a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court’

H

is life makes for a fascinating story even if the current spy movie is mediocre. “The Catcher Was a Spy,” tells of Morris “Moe” Berg, baseball player, and his remarkable intelligence and exploits, especially during World War II. Born in Harlem, not far from the Polo Grounds, home of the New York Giants, Berg began playing baseball at age 7. He was to be called “the brainiest guy in baseball,” and Casey Stengel, a baseball player and manager who was something of an eccentric himself, referred to him as “the strangest man ever to play baseball.” By Leah S. Dunaief Berg’s story, captured in Nicholas Dawidoff’s 1994 book of similar title, is also the story of the times in America in which he lived. Born in 1902, he begged to go to school at age 3 1/2. The third and

youngest child of a pharmacist and a homemaker, Berg graduated from high school at 16, then Princeton magna cum laude in 1923, as an outstanding scholar-athlete playing baseball all along the way. He also grew up as an outsider, marginalized there because of modest finances and as a Jew at a time of deep bigotry. He majored in modern languages and spoke some half-a-dozen fluently, including eventually Japanese. Upon graduation, Berg was signed to a contract by the Brooklyn Robins, soon to become the Brooklyn Dodgers and he seemed to be just so-so at bat but a good clutch hitter with a strong and accurate arm in the infield. After that first season, Berg traveled to Paris, where he enrolled at the Sorbonne and read several newspapers each day. By January 1924, Berg was not thinking of going back to spring training to develop himself as a hitter but rather found the idea of travel irresistible and went on to tour Switzerland and Italy. When he finally did return to the United States, he was optioned off to the Minneapolis Millers of the American Association minor league. He was to play for four

American League teams throughout his baseball career, primarily as a catcher, ending with the Boston Red Sox as player and then coach in 1941. “Good field, no hit,” was how Dodgers scout Mike González, characterized him. Berg distinguished himself for his putouts stealing percentage, double plays by a catcher and assists by a catcher. However, throughout his baseball life, which he so clearly loved, he was a true Renaissance man. In between seasons, and sometimes missing the first couple of months of the new season, he studied law at Columbia University, passing the bar in 1929 and finally earning his Bachelor of Laws degree in 1930. Interestingly, he was sent with Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and a handful of other all-stars to play exhibition games with the Japanese in 1934 — Berg’s second trip there. Although certainly not of their star caliber, he spoke the language and was probably included on the squad for that reason. While in Tokyo, he donned a kimono and pretended to bring flowers to the American ambassador’s daughter, who was a patient in the Tokyo hospital. He went up to the roof instead, and from the top of one of the

tallest buildings he used his 16-mm Bell & Howell camera that he had concealed in the folds of his garb to film the city and harbor. He never did visit the daughter but he did provide American intelligence with rare and invaluable footage later on. He supposedly did this in anticipation of the war that he was sure, from his various readings and Far East travel, was coming. He went on to join the Office of Strategic Services, later the CIA; was parachuted into occupied Yugoslavia evaluating which resistance groups should get U.S. support — he chose Tito’s group; and became involved in the frenzied effort to determine if the German scientist Werner Heisenberg was close to developing the atomic bomb with orders to assassinate him if so — Berg decided not. Otherwise, he was of immense value to the U.S. as he moved throughout Europe in his dangerous and exciting life. The former ballplayer turned down the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor to the war effort, during his lifetime but the medal was awarded posthumously. In American history he is a mysterious footnote.
