Education Commack BOE trustee resigns in wake of investigation A Commack schoolboard trustee has resigned her seat after the district launched a four-month investigation into her actions. Pamela Verity submitted a letter of resignation to Commack School District effective July 31, which was unanimously accepted at an Aug. 1 special board of education meeting. She had been the subject of a special investigation for allegedly disclosing confidential information privy to her as a board trustee and removing school district property from Marion Carll Farm. “As members of the board of education, we essentially trade in confidential information: confidential information about our children, confidential information about our employees,” Jarrett Behar, vice president of Commack’s school board, said. “We cannot get to a point where we decide that the ends justify the means. There are rules in place that need to be followed and we have a duty to follow them.” On April 24, Commack’s board voted 3-to2 to hire attorney Jeffery Smith to undertake an independent investigation of Verity based on accusations she had disclosed confidential information on multiple occasions and taken actions that were an inappropriate use of her authority. The school district released Smith’s 80-page report Aug. 2, following Verity’s resignation, that details his interviews with 10 individuals — all board of education members, Superintendent Donald James and four school employees — between May 2 and 18. “This investigation was spurred by posting of confidential information on Facebook,” reads page

3 of the report. In his investigation, Smith said it was alleged that Verity disclosed details of a confidential personnel matter regarding harassment in the workplace on social media. The investigator said the content indicated the board member had been emailing about, texting about it and expressed her opinion in violation of both state law and district policies. Verity said she admitted to having inadvertently made a public Facebook post on the subject while multitasking but denied it contained detailed information such as specific names.

“I made mistakes, I definitely made mistakes,” she said, but denied her actions were intentional or as malicious in intent as she felt was implied. The report also critically examined conversations Verity had with district employees where alleged confidential information was disclosed or where her actions were considered inappropriate conduct of a trustee, according to the district. “I wear my board hat all the time, I don’t have any First Amendment rights anymore?” she said. “If it was up to them I would not be allowed to post [on social media], I would not be allowed to support people.”

Verity said as an educational advocate with the Opt Out movement prior to joining the board, she consulted with other school trustees and lawyers for advice on handling situations and how to handle confidential matters. The Commack district, she asserted, has a much stricter definition of what qualifies as confidential information than state law requires or surrounding districts’ policies. Commack school officials also said Verity removed documents from Marion Carll Farm without permission. The former board member said she did pack up and take home documents while working on a fundraiser for the site for safekeeping. All were returned to the district, according to Verity. The district admitted to receiving a box of paperwork but says it did not receive a full inventory list of all items removed from the farmhouse as per its request. “If some of these actions were genuine mistakes, they would have merited an apology and a commitment that they would not be repeated and that hasn’t happened,” Smith wrote on page 19 of the report. Verity said she doesn’t want to spend her time and energy defending herself from accusations but would rather move forward. “I thought at first maybe if I speak my truth, this will turn around. It didn’t,” she said. “[The report] doesn’t reflect both sides at all, not at all.” Community members at the Aug. 1 special meeting questioned how much the four-month investigation had cost the district given the independent investigator was hired at $150 an hour. The total bill was not yet available, according to Behar. “This procedure and process obviously did come at a cost and we do not take any endeavor Commack BOE CONTINUED ON A6

When 45-year veteran firefighter Larry Kunzig, 64, heard his wife, Grace, tell him a pregnant woman had collapsed in front of their Hauppauge house, he didn’t hesitate for a second — not even to grab his shoes. “I just ran out of the front door,” Kunzig said. “You don’t even think, you just do.” Kunzig darted across his front yard at approximately 6:50 p.m. Aug. 6 while still in his socks. He assessed the 47-year-old woman, and upon seeing she was unconscious and not breathing, the firefighter immediately began performing CPR. The woman had pulled up with her husband in front of the house in an SUV, according to Assistant Chief Brett Martinez of Hauppauge Fire Department. Her husband was starting to panic when she fell unconsciousness. The woman’s lips were blue and foam was coming from her mouth, according to the accounts of first responders. The seven-month pregnant woman was transported by a Stony Brook medic to Stony Brook University Hospital where she underwent an emergency C-section. The name of the mother or baby has not been released; however, officials from the fire department said both are doing well. “She had a very shallow heartbeat,” Kunzig said. “You just keep doing the CPR. When you see she’s pregnant you want to be careful — you can’t go too low because you don’t want to hurt [the baby.] Two young volunteers of the Hauppauge Fire Department Andrew Mendola, 18, and Jonathan Munro, 18, just happened to be driving nearby. They heard of the situation through their radio, and saw what was happening in front of their

fellow firefighter’s house, they jumped out of the car and took positions on either side of the woman and started helping with CPR. “It was shocking to see,” Munro said. It was his first time performing CPR in a real-life emergency. “We just helped in any way we could.” Mendola said he asked Kunzig if he needed to swap out, but the man was laser focused. “We asked if he needed help and he said ‘I got this, I got this,” Mendola said. “His adrenaline was going, he was not stopping.” All together the group kept up CPR for about five minutes before more emergency responders arrived from Nesconset and Hauppauge fire departments. Officials said that the first responder’s actions saved the woman’s life. Kunzig’s wife said she had stayed up all night praying for the family. “I know emotionally what she’s going through,” said Grace Kunzig, 60, a teacher’s aide at Hauppauge School District. The event hit close to home for the Kunzigs, because Jan. 1 Grace had suddenly collapsed unconscious and was no longer breathing. Emergency medical technicians from the Hauppauge Fire Department, including Mendola, came to help and managed to resuscitate her with an defibrillator. Kunzig remembers how difficult it was for him not knowing if his wife would pull through. “It’s hard to work on someone you love,” he said. “It just changes your whole perspective.” Now the couple said they see what happened Monday as a way of paying it forward in gratitude for all the personnel who helped them in their greatest time of need. “I was so grateful when they stopped my own cardiac arrest — I can’t thank the men and women enough for helping me,” Grace Kunzig said.

Paige Keely memorial installed at Nesconset Gazebo BY AMANDA PERELLI

Town of Smithtown residents now have a place where they can sit down to remember the life of 6-year-old Paige Keely along with other children who have died too soon. Three Nesconset residents Danielle Hoering, Bridget Scher and Sasha Worontzoff, members of Tackan Elementary School’s Parent-Teacher Association, spearheaded the creation of a memorial to Paige Keely installed at the Nesconset Gazebo Aug. 2. on Smithtown Boulevard. The 6-year-old Paige was a first-grader at St. James Elementary who died of a rare, undetected brain condition called arteriovenous malformation Jan. 8. It’s an abnormal development of blood vessels that connect arteries and veins, which occurs in less than 1 percent of the population, according to the Mayo Clinic, a nonprofit academic medical center based in Minnesota. “I know what it’s like to lose someone,” Worontzoff said. “People end up forgetting after a while or move onto the next big thing and we didn’t want people to [forget].” The St. James community initially showed its support for Keely’s parents, Tom and Gina, along

with her two siblings by tying pink ribbons — Paige’s favorite color — around trees, stop signs and telephone poles in the community. Now, there is a pink ribbon at the Nesconset Gazebo. In memory of Paige and all children who have died, a cherry blossom tree donated by Borella Nursery Wholesale Growers in Nesconset was planted near the gazebo as it will blossom with pink flowers each year. The tree was surround-

ed by flowers, a stone plaque and a white bench inscribed with a pink ribbon dedicating it “In Memory of Paige Keely.” The Town of Smithtown Parks, Building & Grounds Department helped install the memorial. “We wanted to do it in a public area so that all families could come and enjoy it, not just at a school,” Scher said. “We just wanted a spot where people can sit and reflect or pay respect to

Paige and the family.” The gazebo was selected as the memorial site because several public events like the Nesconset Concert series are hosted at the park, attracting families and community members. Local businesses and those in the community donated money to help fund the project. “We wanted each person and each establishment to have a sense of contribution to this permanent fixture in our community,” Worontzoff said. “We really just wanted Nesconset people to help and be a part of it.” Worontzoff and Hoering had to get permission from Smithtown’s elected officials in order to build the memorial on town-owned land. “We were so grateful and appreciative that the parks and rec and Town Hall were so quick and knew our story ahead of time,” Worontzoff said. She hopes local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops will maintain the memorial and keep it in good condition throughout the years. This is the second memorial to be constructed in Paige’s memory. Earlier this summer, St. James Elementary School dedicated a butterfly garden on its grounds at the Keely family’s request, according to Principal Mary Grace Lynch.

Opioid symposium posits ethical questions on crisis BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM The opioid crisis has reached its tendrils out to touch every person in the U.S., and the doctors who prescribe those opioids for pain relief see the ethical dilemma; whether they should treat their patients’ pain or not out of concerns of misuse. At an opioid ethics symposium hosted at Stony Brook University Aug. 3, Dr. Kevin Zacharoff, an expert in pain medicine and a sitting member of the Anesthetic and Analgesic Drug Products Advisory Committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, said a number of doctors no longer prescribe opioids for pain management because of how quickly the repercussions of misuse will come down on them. “All the regulatory agencies are coming down and tightening the screws of people in primary care, and people in primary care are saying ‘I wash my hands of it,’” Zacharoff said. “This is all falling on the shoulders of health care providers — when people dying from heroin and fentanyl has overtaken pain medication.” The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that nationally 116 people a day died from opioid-related drug overdoses in 2016. A U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report released in 2016 said that the rate of death from drug overdoses has increased 137 percent

and a 200 percent increase in the rate of opioid overdose deaths from 2000 to 2014. CDC data shows that regulations on prescription opioids restrained the rise of overdose deaths involving legal drugs, but since 2011 there has been a spike in the number of deaths caused by illicit drugs such as heroin and other painkillers including fentanyl. Zacharoff said he fears that these regulations on opioid prescribing pushes stable patients who could have been using opioids to treat longterm pain into using illicit drugs. “Prescription drug monitoring programs have made a positive impact, but they have also had a negative impact on health care providers, because it takes a lot of time and energy,” Zacharoff said. “Should we sacrifice our care for patients for the sake of people using the substances illicitly?” For the past several years federal agencies, as well as state governments, have started to restrict the number of opioids available for pharmacies as well as scrutinizing how doctors prescribe that medication. A large number of federal agencies, such as the CDC, the FDA, the Drug Enforcement Administration, just to name a few, are involved in opioid research and regulations. This is on top of state prescription drug monitoring programs, which make doctors fill out forms on patients, saying whether they informed them of the dangers of the drugs and whether they asked if there was a person in the house with a history

of addiction. In April, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the DEA would propose setting more limits on the numbers of opioids that a drug manufacturer could produce. Prescribing doctors said they have seen multiple problems with a shortage of opioids due to these limits on manufacturing and distribution. “We are seeing an inability to get our prescriptions filled on Long Island,” said Laureen Diot, a nurse practitioner from East Patchogue. Though that is not to say there have not been bad actors. In May, Merrick doctor Michael Belfiore was convicted of prescribing hundreds of opioids for profit and for causing the deaths of two men via overdoses. He wrote 5,000 prescriptions for 600,000 pain pills between January 2010 and March 2013, but Belfiore is asking a federal judge to dismiss the case, saying it was the pharmaceutical companies who promoted the drugs while downplaying their risks. The issue, Zacharoff said, stems from doctors’ lack of education when it comes to pain medicine. A 2011 study in the National Academies Press showed that out of 117 U.S. and Canadian medical schools only four U.S. schools offer a required course on pain. “That’s despite the fact that pain is the most common reason people seek medical attention,” Zacharoff said. “Doctors will often say to me, ‘I

have to think about hypertension, diabetes, heart disease,’ but pain is more prevalent than diabetes, cancer and heart disease combined.” Suffolk County officials are hoping to see a decline in the number of opioid-related deaths this year. In a report presented at the May 31 Suffolk County Legislature’s health committee meeting Chief Medical Examiner Michael Caplan said that if numbers stay low, approximately 260 opioid-related deaths are expected this year — a near 100-person decrease compared to 2017. However, the county will not know the total opioid-related deaths until the year’s end. There are options for nonopioid pain relief, such as rehabilitative and psychological therapies. Doctors at the symposium said they expect as opioid prescribing ebbs, then other practices or drugs will become more prevalent. While some medical professionals said medical marijuana might one day work as effective pain relief, it not being legal in New York and without the necessary number of tests, the drug is not viable at this moment. “It’s too early to write the book on marijuana for chronic pain,” said Marco Palmieri, the director of the Center for Pain Management at Stony Brook University. “Some physicians have gotten around this by opting not to test for marijuana [when doing prescriptions]. Whether that’s right, I don’t know. There certainly needs to be more data available.”

Opinion

Editorial

Regulate recreational pot

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has put New York on a path to become the 10th state in the United States to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. We’re in favor of jumping on the national movement, so long as it’s done with both eyes wide open. On Aug. 2, Cuomo announced that he was forming a group of 20 experts specializing in public health, safety and economics to draft legislation to regulate the recreational use of marijuana by adults. The bill would go before the state Legislature in January 2019. Laws surrounding marijuana have been gradually shifting since California legalized its medical use in 1996. A number of scientific studies have shown the drug may be beneficial for those suffering from chronic pain, seizures and mental impairments. New York adopted medical marijuana laws in July 2014. The state’s foray into opening the medical marijuana market has been closely regulated. Patients need to be formally diagnosed by a licensed medical practitioner, have it prescribed, register with the state and carry an identification card. The state has limited the number of dispensaries, making for news whenever a site opens. Moving toward decriminalizing recreational use of pot — as its more commonly called — could provide several benefits. Colorado, one of the first states to allow smoking marijuana in 2012, saw an immediate economic boom. It saw a vast spike in tourism, something unlikely to repeat here in New York, but reports show benefits from taxing and regulating what was once an underground market. The Gazette, a Colorado Springs newspaper, reported in July that studies show there’s been an increase in the number of adults who are indulging in marijuana, while the number of high school and middle school students who report testing it out has held steady at or below the national average. Simply put, if a teen was tempted to try it — marijuana’s legality wasn’t stopping them. New York approving legislation allowing for the drug’s recreational use — treating it similarly to alcohol — could open up avenues for regulations of an otherwise black market turning it into a resource to provide tax revenue for the state. The funds would arguably benefit school districts and could be used to help close state budgetary shortfalls while helping offset any further tax hikes. The drafted bill should outline restrictions on smoking up more in line with shifting socially acceptable drugs, like alcohol. We agree age restrictions, limitations on appropriate places and enforcement against drugged driving need to be on the books. The issue becomes, can marijuana be safely, legally and responsibly used? State legislators need to create a carefully crafted, well-thought out bill that sets parameters to allow for regulation of what’s already happening. Each week, TBR News Media reporters see countless incidents of people being arrested for possessing or smoking marijuana — without committing other criminal behavior. Regulate it, create a market and be flexible to amending the laws when — not if — loopholes emerge. It’s time to refocus our law enforcement’s efforts on cracking down on Long Island’s illegal heroin and opioid problems, which can and do result in fatal overdoses and places stress on our health care system.

Letters to the editor Zeldin only cares about his allies In response to the letter titled “Proud to be on Zeldin enemies list” in The Times of Smithtown July 19 edition, I would like to commend Ms. Gordon for the amazing poise she displayed in light of the treatment she received via the Zeldin goons. The unbecoming conduct that was exhibited at this pathetic campaign event is a tribute to what this most absurd congressman stands for. Lee Zeldin is nothing more than a “Chump” puppet who lacks the ability to contribute one original viewpoint that would in any way improve the lives of the constituents that he is supposed to represent. Zeldin is only concerned with his own upward mobility, echoing every viewpoint that this administration utters and clamoring for a pat on the head by his hero in

the White House. This latest stunt at Smithtown Elks Lodge is proof positive that Zeldin only cares to hear the voices of those that stroke the president’s fragile ego and stand in agreement with his thoughtless policies. His frequent stints on Fox News are direct manifestations of his never-ending desire to simply be seen spouting Trumpisms in a most public forum. He ignores calls from those he deems unworthy, makes appearances at hand-picked establishments where he knows his minions will show up for photo ops and has consistently refused to hold a bipartisan town hall as a representative of the people should do. Zeldin seems to forget that he is not sim-

ply a representative for the right-wingers who pant over the president’s every word, but works instead for everyone in Congressional District 1. Threatening to arrest members of the press and other individuals who went through all of the proper channels to attend a campaign event for a public official is simply a bullying act of cowardice that comes as no surprise to those who demand excellence and equal commitment from those who represent us in the U.S. Congress. This behavior is nothing short of disgusting and a complete contradiction of the decorum expected of a federal officeholder. It will be my pleasure to replace Zeldin come November 2018.

President has no sense of patriotism

When President Trump departed for Europe last week, it was the unanimous consensus of all 17 American intelligence agencies, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the House and Senate Intelligence committees and the U.S. Department of Justice — supported by an indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers — that Russia had blatantly interfered in the 2016 presidential election. Moreover, there was no doubt that Russia had annexed Crimea, occupied eastern Ukraine, shot down a Malaysian airliner, assassinated opponents in England and Moscow, and backed the Assad regime in the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of Syrian civilians. In Europe, rather than building support among America’s European allies, Trump viciously attacked U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, listed America’s primary foe as the European Union, and undercut the ability of NATO to contain Russian aggression. Having spawned discord in Brussels

and London, Trump arrived in Helsinki, Finland, with an opportunity to confront the Russian tyrant. Instead, in what Sen. John McCain called “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory,” Trump credited Russian President Vladimir Putin’s denial of waging cyber warfare over his own intelligence agencies assessment, stating he “cannot see any reason to believe Russia interfered in the election.” Moreover, Trump conceded he did not directly criticize or challenge Putin over any other Russian transgression. But Trump did more than absolve Putin — who acknowledged he wanted Trump to be elected president — blaming American “foolishness and stupidity” for tensions in the U.S.–Russia relationship. Trump’s sickening attempt at moral equivalence (“I hold both countries responsible”) between Russia and the United States was condemned by, among others, House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney (“claiming a moral equivalence …

undermines our national integrity and impairs our global credibility”), former Speaker Newt Gingrich (“most serious mistake” of Trump presidency), the Wall Street Journal (“national embarrassment”) and Sen. Jeff Flake (“I never thought I would see the day when our American president would stand on the stage with the Russian president and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression”). Former CIA director, John Brennan, after condemning Trump’s performance as “nothing short of treasonous,” asked “Republican patriots: Where are you?” Indeed, will Trump supporters who have ignored and excused his endless litany of lies, policy missteps and moral outrages, finally, in the face of Trump’s betrayal of America and siding with a Russian tyrant over his own country, ask the president, “Have you no sense of patriotism, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of patriotism?” William Schaefer Old Field

President’s actions are sickening President Donald Trump’s recent inhuman act of forcing the separation of children from their parents among certain potential immigrants has been sickening. Such an action, besides infuriating most of us, has also alienated many people in nations around the world. Furthermore, his statement that Democratic presidents — Obama and Clinton — stressed this child/parent separation is a total exaggeration. Twisted accusations of that kind, as well as lying depictions and disgusting policies, are

typical of Trump, who endlessly and severely alters the truth and thereby tarnishes the image of our beloved country. In recent months, his miserable comments aimed at certain foreign leaders have begun to turn heaven knows how many nations against us. Furthermore, his close relationship to Vladimir Putin is nothing short of disgusting, for that man is unworthy of admiration or praise from normal people. As for Trump’s obvious antipathy towards immigration, let me say some-

thing similar to what I have said earlier in these pages: We Americans are either immigrants or the descendants of immigrants — Trump included. Even the ancestors of Native Americans came here from Asia eons ago. Let us pray for those children and their parents who have been forcefully and cruelly separated from one another by this wholly insensitive, selfish, inept, truth-twisting president.

OPINION The next generation’s attitude to driving

I

s driving uninspiring for the next generation? My daughter recently got her license and my son is attending driver’s education classes so he can join his sister behind the wheel. This should be cause for celebration for them, right? Nope. When I ask my daughter if she wants to drive somewhere, she often shrugs and says, “Nah, that’s D. None OK, you can drive.” of the above I recently took BY DANIEL DUNAIEF a long drive with my son, where I pointed out the magnificent trees along the side of the road and where I couldn’t help noticing the license plates of cars

from Alaska, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and Oregon, just to name a few. “Dad,” my son interjected, after the pitch of my voice rose when I saw the one from Alaska, “you really like license plates.” No, he doesn’t get it, just as I don’t get his generation. When I got my license, I couldn’t wait to visit my friends, to go to the movies, to drive to West Meadow Beach where I had spent so much of my time walking, jogging or biking. Driving meant I no longer had to count the curves until I was at the beach. I could also exhaust myself in the waves and run out to the end of the magnificent sandbar, which seemed to stretch halfway to Connecticut, without worrying about leaving the beach before sunset so I could get home in the light. I could also offer to pick up my friends. I could drive to their houses, knock on their doors, show off my license to their parents and then laugh my way into the car with a friend, who would turn on the radio to music. It wasn’t

the boring nonstop news stations that my parents listened to — and which I now play in the car when I’m alone. I could drive to The Good Steer in Lake Grove and meet someone for a burger and a mountain of onion rings. I could make the car as hot or cold as I wanted. A driver’s license meant independence, freedom and maturity. I didn’t have to wait for anyone. But, no, my children and, from what I understand, many kids just aren’t as enthralled with the opportunity to get a license. For starters, as we have told them endlessly from the time we handed them their first wonderful-terrible device, they can’t use their cellphones when they are driving. When we drive, they can ignore the road signs and street signs. They don’t have to search the side of the road for deer, turtles or the rare and exciting fox. They can chat with their friends, who are similarly indifferent to their immediate surroundings, while the car, driven by someone else, magically carries them

to their next destination. We must have taken them to so many places where they wanted to go that they had no great urge to get behind the wheel and drive themselves. I know my mom was a chauffeur, too, driving the three of us hither and yon, but maybe we haven’t said to our children, “You can go when you can drive,” often enough. Maybe all the FaceTime and Skype time means that they can see and laugh with their friends without leaving the comfort of their home. They can’t bowl, see a movie or drink an Orange Julius, but they can hang out together while being in different places. Access to Uber and Lyft may also have reduced the need for them to drive. Then again, maybe it’s much simpler than that. I recently asked my son why he wasn’t more excited about driving. “Because,” he sighed, “when I get my license, you’ll ask me to do stuff.”

Techniques for avoiding traffic tickets

I

f your car is pulled over by a police officer, there is a good chance that you will be treated mercifully by the officer if you have the same first name as his or hers. How do I know this? There has been research that corroborates that statement. Now in a possible scenario, it would be a little difficult for me to pass myself off as Between “James,” the name you and me on the officer’s name tag, when BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF my driver’s license clearly says differently, although I suppose I could try telling him that he can call me by my

nickname, “James,” for short. Somehow, on reflection, I don’t think that strategy would work. As I was considering the possibility, I remembered strategies that did work, deliberate or not, that at least got me out of a ticket. I’ll bet you have some such memories of roadside encounters with the law, too. The first one to come to mind happened the day after I got married. My new husband was a medical student in Chicago, and he had flown into New York City for the Sunday wedding. We then flew back to his apartment that night, he returned to school the next day, and I got into his car and began to drive to an employment agency in the neighborhood. As I passed along the unfamiliar streets, I came up behind a large truck that was stopped just short of an underpass. When it didn’t immediately move, I assumed it was either stuck or parked there, and I drove around it to continue on my way. Immediately a police car appeared in my rear-view mirror,

lights flashing. I should mention here that I had not been stopped before in my short driving career. I pulled over, rolled down the window and waited as the middle-aged policeman got out and walked toward me frowning. “What’s the matter with you?” he inquired. “You just ran a stop sign.” I looked into my side mirror and realized that was why the truck was stopped. It had, however, blocked my view of the sign. I started to explain. “Where are you going in such a hurry?” “I’m going for a job interview with an employment counselor. I just got married yesterday in New York and I need a job.” Although I do not cry easily, I could feel myself beginning to tear up. “What! You just got married? Where is your lazy bum of a husband? Why isn’t he out working?” (This was February 1963, years before women’s liberation was even an expression.) “He’s a medical student here, and I’m the

one who has to support us for now.” I was beginning to sob. My story must have had the ring of truth, because he stared at me for a moment, then took out his handkerchief — these were the days before tissues — and handed it to me. He looked stricken. “Now don’t cry. Everything will be all right. You just go on to your appointment.” He started to turn away, then turned back for a moment. “You just make sure that husband of yours takes care of you properly as soon as he finishes school.” He turned on his heel, climbed into his car and pulled away. It was only then, as I was wiping my cheeks, that I realized he had left me with only his handkerchief — and not a ticket. I have been stopped by police officers on the highways in the course of the ensuing years. But I have never again been able to cry on cue. If you have any surefire ticket beaters, please share them with the rest of us.
