There are many events being held to recognize Town of Smithtown veterans for their service to our country this weekend. The Sgt. John W. Cooke Post 395 of St. James will be hosting its annual Veterans Day parade Nov. 11. “It is a day set aside by a grateful nation to honor all veterans who served in the Armed Forces,” wrote Sal Riccobono, the parade’s chairman. “The parade and ceremony is our chance to immortalize those who made the ultimate sacrifice.” The St. James parade steps off at 10 a.m. from the intersection of Lake and Woodlawn avenues in St. James. Marchers will head north along Lake Avenue to St. James Elementary School, where a commemorative ceremony will be held immediately following the parade. The elementary school building is located at 580 Lake Avenue in St. James. Nissequogue Veterans of Foreign Wars

A ceremony will be held immediately following the parade, with light refreshments to follow at 40 Church Street in Kings Park. In Nesconset, the FealGood Foundation will be holding a candlelight vigil to honor all military personnel who have served, both past and present, at the 9/11 Responders Remembered Park. The vigil will begin at 6 p.m. Light refreshments will be served afterward.

State officials unveil $40M plan for Nissequogue park By Sara-Megan WalSh sara@tbrnewspapers.com

New York State officials have revealed a $40 million proposal for the next phase of Nissequogue River State Park development. The state Department of Environmental Conservation, in partnership with the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, held two public presentations Nov. 2 at the Kings Park Fire Department for Phase 3 of rehabilitation and restoration of Nissequogue River State Park, built on the former grounds of the Kings Park Psychiatric Center. Wayne Horsley, regional director for the state office of parks, said that with Phase 3 residents will start to see a substantial improvement in the park. “This is a community effort; Nissequogue River State Park is worth the effort,” he said. “The park is going to come to life. This will be a positive thing for everybody concerned.” At the center of the preliminary plan is the construction of a new 25,000 squarefoot headquarters for the DEC’s Division of Marine Resources in the existing footprint of Building 40, the former child care center, which would be demolished. The move would bring more than 100 DEC employees in the marine fisheries, marine habitat, shellfisheries and oceans program bureaus to Kings Park. It would also house the DEC’s Marine Enforcement unit and bring yearround law enforcement into the park.

a state official and residents discuss plans for Phase 3 of the nissequogue river State Park rehabilitation revealed nov. 2. above, Wayne horsley, the state’s regional director of parks, at the nov. 2 meeting. “This is a much more ideal place for us,” said James Gilmore, director of the DEC’s Marine Resources Division. “Having a marine program next to the water makes so much more sense than where we are right now, in a medical park that’s six miles from the water.” The $26 million building would also be equipped with the state’s only FDA-certified shellfish laboratory, for testing and maintaining the health and safety of harvested shellfish, in addition to a marine permit office.

FALL DEALS AT

Construction of the new facility is expected to begin in the winter of 2018 with a targeted completion date of winter of 2020. The DEC would also partner with the state parks’ office to design and construct a brand new marina. With a proposed $8 million budget, a new Nissequogue State Park Marina would be built to the south of the existing marina with a 151-boat capacity, new year-round floating docks, boat pump-out facility, comfort station including restrooms

and improved parking area for boaters. “The advantages I think are pretty clear,” said Craig Green, with the consulting firm D&B Engineers and Architects that has been hired to oversee engineering and design of Phase 3. “It would provide new facilities. It has capacity for existing boats plus DEC’s boats, greater security, better lighting and better access to the boats.”

ElEction REsults

Wehrheim wins supervisor, incumbents win back seats County sheriff race too close to call By Sara-Megan WalSh and deSirÉe Keegan Ed Wehrheim (R) will lead the Town of Smithtown into a new era, ending the 40year reign of his Republican party colleague, Supervisor Pat Vecchio. Councilman Wehrheim defeated Democrat William Holst and independent candidate Kristen Slevin by receiving nearly 57 percent of the vote in the Nov. 7 general election. Holst received roughly 35 percent and Slevin almost 8 percent. The supervisor-elect said he felt terrific about the win after a difficult primary battle for the nomination. “It’s a great victory for Smithtown in my opinion, a great victory for my supporters and residents,” he said. “I’m looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting to work in January.” Slevin, who fought her way onto the election ballot through the petition process to create a three-way race, said she was thank- we can do to make it better and that’s what we’re going to do in the next four years.” ful to those who supported her campaign.

Cops: Impaired driver causes five-car Hauppauge accident

Suffolk County 4th Squad detectives are investigating a five-vehicle crash that seriously injured two people in Hauppauge Nov. 3. West Islip resident Charles Healy was driving a 2010 Dodge pickup eastbound on the Long Island Expressway between exits 56 and 57 when his vehicle struck a 2016 Mazda rental car at approximately 11:52 p.m. The collision caused the driver of the Mazda, Jerzy Grochowicz, to crash his vehicle into a 2017 Subaru being operated by Brian Garcia, whose vehicle then struck a 2017 Jeep driven by Eric Veilleux, whose vehicle in turn crashed into a 2016 Subaru driven by Siobhan Atkinson. Grochowicz, 54, and his wife, Malgorzata Grochowicz, 55, of Hamilton, Ontario in Canada, who was a passenger in the Mazda, were transported to Stony Brook University Hospital. They were both treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Garcia, 25, of Brentwood, was transported to Southside Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Healy, 56, was transported to St. Catherine of Sienna Medical Center in Smithtown for treatment of minor injuries and released. Veilleux, 45, of Medford, and Atkinson, 58, of Hauppauge, refused medical treatment at the scene. Healy was arrested by police and charged with driving while ability impaired by the combination of drugs and alcohol. He was held overnight at the 4th Precinct for arraignment in Central Islip

House tax bill criticized by NY lawmakers on both sides of aisle By Alex Petroski alex@tbrnewspapers.com stock photo

155550

the tax Cuts and Jobs Act would reduce the number of income tax brackets from seven to four; eliminate deductions for state and local income taxes; and would reduce the corporate tax rate from 35 to 20 percent.

Last week Republicans in the House of Representatives took a major step toward fulfilling a lynchpin campaign promise that is seemingly decades old. The House Ways and Means committee released the framework of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act Nov. 2, a major piece of legislation touted by President Donald Trump (R) as a cut to income taxes for “hardworking, middle-income Americans,” though it would negatively affect New Yorkers if signed into law, according to lawmakers from both sides of the political aisle. The highlights of the bill, which would require passage by the House and Senate and the president’s signature before becoming law, include a consolidation from seven individual income tax brackets down to four; the elimination of the deduction for state and local income taxes, a provision that in the past through federal tax returns gave a portion of tax dollars back to individuals in higher income tax states like New York; and a reduction of the corporate tax rate from 35 to 20 percent. “I am a ‘No’ to this bill in its current form,” 1st Congressional District U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) said in a statement. “We need to fix this state and local tax [SALT] deduction issue. Adding back in the property tax deduction up to $10,000 is progress, but not enough progress. If I’m not fighting for New Yorkers, I can’t expect anyone else from another state to do it for me.” U.S. Rep. for the 2nd District, Tom Suozzi (D-Glen Cove), was even more critical of the bill than Zeldin. “The goal of tax reform is to help hard-working Americans make more money so they can live the American Dream,” Suozzi said in a statement. “The American people expect us to find a bipartisan solution to tax reform that helps create good paying middle-class jobs. This plan doesn’t achieve that goal. I won’t support it.” Other New York lawmakers from the Democratic Party voiced harsh opposition to the bill in its current form. New York’s U.S. senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York) and Chuck Schumer (D-New York) each said via Twitter they viewed the bill as a tax break for corporations that would have a negative impact on middle-class citizens. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) called the bill a “tax increase plan.” “The tax reform plan, they call a tax cut plan,” Cuomo said in a statement. “It has a diabolical dimension, which is the elimination of the deductibility of state and local taxes … what makes it an even more gross injustice is, the state of New York contributes more to the federal government than any other state. New York contributes more to Washington than any other state. We’re the No. 1 donor state. We give $48 billion more than we get back. Why you would want to take more from New York is a gross, gross injustice.” Duncan MacKenzie, chief executive officer of the New York State Association of Realtors said in a statement the bill would harm many New York homeowners. “It will lessen the value of the property tax deduction and it cuts a host of other key housing-related tax incentives,” he said. The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization founded in the 1980s and dedicated to educating the public on issues with significant fiscal policy impact, estimated the bill would result in a $1.5 trillion increase to the national deficit. Mark Snyder of Mark J. Snyder Financial Services, a Hauppauge-based personal financial planning and management firm, called the bill a “torpedo aimed at the wallets of Long Islanders” in an email. He also pointed to the elimination of the SALT deduction as clear evidence the bill would harm New Yorkers. “As a representative from New York, I’d kick this bill to the curb,” he said when asked what he would do if he were tasked with voting on the bill.

Fort Salonga man runs NYC marathon to honor friend’s battle To honor his close friend’s fight for life, a Fort Salonga resident took his mark in Staten Island Sunday morning for the run of his. Wayne Trumbull was among the 50,000 participants in the TCS New York City Marathon Nov. 5, running the 26.2-mile race from Staten Island to Central Park to commemorate his friend Paul Gugliuzzo’s perseverance during a harrowing battle with lung failure last year. It was his first time running a marathon. Trumbull, 50, ran as a member of the American Lung Association team and raised $11,000 for the organization leading up to the marathon. The funds raised will go toward research, advocacy and medical equipment for lung diseases. Trumbull, a professional tax partner and part-time sports coach, completed the five-borough race with an unofficial time of four hours, 29 minutes, to the roar of thousands of people lining the streets. The loudest of cheers for him came from members of the Fort Salonga community, including Gugliuzzo, who gave Trumbull a high five as he passed by. “It’s not easy for a casual runner like me to run 26 miles, but when the chips are down, I’m focusing on what Paul went through,” Trumbull said prior to the race. “He was on the brink of death and he bounced back. This is very motivating and emotional for me.” Gugliuzzo — a Fort Salonga resident, former construction manager and a friend of Trumbull’s since their sons joined the same Kings Park youth baseball team 10 years ago — was diagnosed with upper lobe emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in 2009. His conditions progresPhotos from Wayne Trumbull sively worsened, and in Fort Salonga resident Wayne March 2016 he underwent Trumbull, pictured above a bilateral lung volume releft, ran his first marathon duction surgery at Columbia in honor of his friend, Paul Presbyterian Hospital in New gugliuzzo, who survived York City. His doctors initially respiratory failure. Above advised it would keep him right, Trumbull runs the race. in the hospital for a week. Medical complications occurred, however, and the day after the surgery, Gugliuzzo went into respiratory failure. He was placed into a medically induced coma for five weeks. He spent 107 days in the surgical intensive care unit — during which time his blood was oxidized with an ECMO machine and he battled multiple bouts with pneumonia. He was released from the hospital in August 2016. Throughout the lengthy ordeal, Trumbull spent every Friday night at his friend’s bedside offering Gugliuzzo’s wife, Patti, and family members a much-needed reprieve as they were there 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “Wayne supported us at a time when we needed it most,” Patti Gugliuzzo said. “Truly, if it weren’t for Wayne and our friends in Fort Salonga who rallied around us, I don’t know how we would’ve made it.” It was during these nights Trumbull realized he had to do something significant for Gugliuzzo. “At that point I didn’t know if it was going to be to honor his life or his battle — fortunately it ended up being his battle,” Trumbull said. A casual runner who had previously only competed in Northport’s Great Cow Harbor 10K and other smaller races for charity, Trumbull began the process of fundraising for the American Lung Association. He learned that it was a sponsor for the New York City Marathon. “The marathon was never something I had on my bucket list, but I knew it was significant and something that took a lot of effort and commitment, and would be a fight in and of itself,” he said. “This is just what I consider being a good friend.” As the 2016 American Lung Association’s team filled its lim-

ited spots by the time Trumbull pursued entry, he applied for this year’s team as soon as they took applications. He was part of a strict training program beginning this past summer and ran five days a week for four months in preparation. Gugliuzzo, who said his lungs are better now than they’ve been in 15 years, is in the process of rehabilitating himself. He’s looking to Trumbull’s participation in the marathon as motivation to hop on the treadmill every once in awhile. “If Wayne can do 26 miles, I can do two,” Gugliuzzo said. “Me inspiring him in turn inspires me back. It’s heartwarming what he’s done for me.” He said his hope one day is to run in the Great Cow Harbor 10K alongside Trumbull.

TOWN NISSEQUOGUE Continued from page A3 The parks’ existing north and south marinas would be largely demolished and restoration efforts would be made to return them to wetlands. The existing boat ramp may be retrofitted to be used as a launch for nonmotorized boats, kayaks and paddle boards, according to Horsley. Construction of the new marina would be tentatively slated to begin in 2019. The proposed Phase 3 sets aside $1.5 million to bring new water mains and fire hydrants to the park. The announcement was answered with loud applause by approximately 85 attendees at the Nov. 2 meeting. “If we ever had a fire, [the firefighters] would have adequate water supply to put out the fire,” Horsley said. “It will bring potable water to the DEC building, the administrative building and the park.” The parks regional director called it a “win-win” as he said new lines would bring water to the soccer fields frequently used by local teams. Other improvements under the proposed Phase 3 include demolition of three fire-damaged buildings and several upgrades to the park’s administrative headquarters including a new roof, window restoration, new heating and cooling systems and improved handicapped access to the building in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Detailed conceptual renderings of the proposed DEC building can be found on the agency’s website at www.dec.ny.gov/ about/796.html. Individuals who were unable to attend the two public meetings can comment on the plan until Nov. 30. Feedback may be submitted via email to FW.Marine@dec. ny.gov or via mail to: Stephanie Rekemeyer, NYSDEC, 205 Belle Mead Road, Suite 1, East Setauket, New York 11733.

Clockwise from top, conceptual drawings of the proposed new marina; new DEC headquarters for Nissequogue River State Park; and James Gilmore, director of the DEC’s Division of Marine Resources, explains why the park is a desirable location.

Residents ecstatic, but concerned about Nissequogue plans BY SaRa-MEGaN WalSh sara@tbrnewspapers.com Kings Park residents and community groups showed widespread support for a $40 million proposal for further development of Nissequogue River State Park but also voiced their reservations. Tony Tanzi, president of Kings Park Chamber of Commerce, said the group’s members came together prior to the state Department of Environmental Conservation and Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation Nov. 2 joint presentation to discuss the plan’s potential impacts. “Our entire board is fully on board with this,” Tanzi said to state officials at the presentation. “We are ecstatic that you are making this endeavor. We look forward to being your partner in this whole endeavor and anything we could do to help, we certainly will.” John McQuaid, president of the Nissequogue River State Park Foundation, said the organization’s members have concerns about a new DEC building being constructed near the center of the park. There are still numerous empty buildings that need to be demolished without any time frame for doing so, he said, while the government is already

a map outlining the proposed location of the new DEC headquarters at Nissequogue River State Park. looking to construct new structures. Yet, the group is in support of the plan, according to its president. “The marina is a home run,” McQuaid said. “It’s a valuable improvement for the community.” Other concerns were raised with regard to increased traffic that may be caused by moving the DEC’s headquarters to the area and whether it will fit into the overall vi-

sion for the park. Many pointed out the state still lacks a master plan to guide the future design and usage of the more than 500 acres. “We are so excited about this project, but we know that you can work on this project along with working on a master plan at the same time,” Linda Henninger, president of Kings Park Civic Association, said. “We all know how important it is to have a master

plan for the entirety of the park.” Wayne Horsley, regional director for the state office of parks, admitted to “back stepping a little” on his previous agreement with residents to draw up a master plan, but claims his office doesn’t have the funds. A master plan recently commissioned by the state for Sunken Meadow State Park cost between $200,000 and $400,000. “We will discuss it further, we are not adversarial on the issue,” the parks regional director said. The Nissequogue River State Park Foundation countered by offering to pay up to half the cost of a master plan. The organization has hundreds of thousands in the bank, according to McQuaid, which they are ready and willing to smartly invest in the park’s future. Horsley expressed concerns that a master plan could take two to three years, and that what exists now is a unique opportunity to work jointly with the DEC, which is providing the majority of the $40 million in funding. “My message to the community is let’s jump on this while we can, I think it’s a big step forward,” Horsley said. “When I have an opportunity to get $40 million into the park, it’s a good thing. I think we should take advantage of it.”

Election votes count

With Election Day right around the corner, first-graders at Mills Pond Elementary School in the Smithtown school district learned about the electoral process during a forest election Nov. 6.

Three candidates — Bartholomew Bear, Betsy Beaver and Fitzgerald Fox — were all vying for the position to be the head of the forest. The students listened to each candidate’s platform and learned why they would be the best one to run the forest. The first-graders then cast their vote for their favorite candidate.

On Oct. 28, students from Great Hollow Middle School and Dogwood Elementary School in the Smithtown school district joined forces to help fight hunger. Members of the schools’ Peanut Butter Gang community service clubs visited Hospitality Too soup kitchen in Brentwood. They made peanut butter sandwiches that will be distributed at various locations on Long Island and in New York City and also helped serve a hot lunch to soup kitchen guests. In addition, students also distributed Halloween costumes collected at drives in both buildings.

Can’t stop Commack: Cougars head to county finals By Bill landon Commack’s girls volleyball team is a killing machine — taking down all but three opponents over four games with sweeps this season. Despite No. 3 Smithtown East giving the No. 2 Cougars some concern in the Class AA semifinal Nov. 6, Commack came through with its third 3-1 win of the season, 25-20, 26-24, 25-10, 25-23.

Trump tax cut a raw deal for the middle class

Photo by Dennis Whittam

A motorist died at St. Charles Hospital after being rescued from a submerged car in Port Jefferson Harbor Oct. 30.

It’s time for real action at PJ marina boat ramp A problem with quite a few seemingly simple and inexpensive solutions exists in Port Jefferson, and rather than working together to solve it, various levels of government are kicking the can down the road, pointing fingers and letting people die. The boat launch at the Brookhaven Town-owned Port Jefferson Marina, which sits in the heart of Port Jefferson Village beyond the intersection of a New York State and PJ Village road is a public health problem. Drivers heading north on Barnum Avenue are crossing over Route 25A, entering the marina lot and winding up on the boat ramp either intentionally or without realizing it — the distinction is irrelevant. This year alone, two men in their 60s drove into the water via the ramp, and in each case frantic rescue efforts ensued to pull the victims from their sinking vehicles. In April, good Samaritans on the scene succeeded. When it happened again last week, first responders couldn’t save the driver in time. While we understand a New York State Supreme Court judge ruled in 2011 that a 2005 incident in which a driver also died after plunging into the water via the boat ramp was not the fault of the town or village — the codefendants in the lawsuit by the executrix of the driver’s estate — that doesn’t mean complete inaction is acceptable. To be clear, we’re not blaming the town or village for the death of William Whalen Oct. 30. But the town’s idea that several “Do Not Enter” signs are enough and should completely absolve them of any culpability is extremely disheartening. Village Mayor Margot Garant has been vocal about the problem, at least since the April incident, and has been in touch with the State Department of Transportation, but the village’s “not our property” excuse is also disheartening. State Sen. Ken LaValle (R-Port Jefferson) has been in power for decades and thus was around when Richard Levin died crossing the state road and submerging his vehicle in 2005. In response to last week’s occurrence, LaValle met with leadership of the DOT to discuss what his spokesperson called a “horrible incident” in an email. Wasn’t the 2005 incident horrible enough to warrant action? Garant has said the state has agreed to turn the traffic signals into strictly left and right arrows so motorists know they can’t go straight at the intersection. It is inexcusable that even with virtually every possible municipality having some sort of stake in improving safety at a clearly troublesome intersection the best solution that can be reached 12 years after a death resulting in a lawsuit is right and left arrows and Do Not Enter signs. We have a few suggestions. Put your collective dollars together and invest in a retractable or closable gate. Install strips to puncture driver’s tires should they head down the ramp. Put a permanent barrier in the middle of the wide-open ramp entrance that leaves a single vessel width on either side. Purchase a sign with a clear warning that if a driver proceeds across 25A they might end up in the water. Blinking lights could even be added to the sign for perfect visibility at night, when most of these incidents seem to occur. We don’t care any longer whose responsibility the ramp technically falls under. Do something now or prepare to share culpability when, not if, this happens again.

What happened to the deficit hawks? Were they magically transformed into chickens at the sight of a multitrillion dollar tax cut for big business and the very rich? It sure looks that way with the Trump tax cut. The Trump tax cut blows a $1.5-trillion hole in the budget, yet not a peep is heard from Paul Ryan and his merry band of deficit foes. For years every dollar spent to improve the lives of the American public was met with howls of agony about the deficit. Dark threats were issued against Social Security and Medicare. Looks like now we can forget about fixing our infrastructure. This is not your Reagan tax cut benefiting the middle class. This is a massive shift of the tax burden onto the middle class. It’s a multitrillion dollar giveaway to corporations and the wealthy funded by eliminating middle class tax breaks. First up is the elimination of the state and local tax deduction and capping the property tax deduction at $10,000. For many taxpayers on Long Island the much ballyhooed increase in the standard deduction will be swamped by this. Next, the personal exemption, currently $4,050 per household member, has been eliminated entirely. Do you have significant medical expenses? Tough luck, it’s no longer deductible. Moving expenses? Tough. Student loans? No deduction. Alimony? Forget about it. Ah, yes, but there’s a new $300 tax credit for dependents over 17 such as an aged parent. But Houdini-like, it disappears after 5 years. Strangely enough the gigantic tax cuts for big business and the very rich stick

around permanently. Remember Trump’s promise to eliminate the carried interest tax loophole, which benefits billionaire hedge fund and private equity managers? Nowhere to be found. But lest the very wealthy feel forgotten, the estate tax exemption, which currently affects only the few thousand families who are in the top 0.2 percent, is doubled immediately and the tax is eliminated entirely after 6 years. This alone will cost the government $269 billion over 10 years. But it’s sure good news for Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka. This massive shift of the tax burden onto the middle class is justified by claiming big business will use its newfound wealth to increase wages and salaries. Last time I checked, Wall Street celebrates every time wages are

reduced or workers laid off. It celebrates even more when a corporation announces a dividend increase or a stock buyback. That’s where the money will go. It’s easier to believe in the tooth fairy than to believe big business is going to shower its middle class workers with pay increases because of tax cut induced generosity. If the Trump tax cut passes, no doubt in two or three years Congress, like some latter-day Rip Van Winkle, will wake up one day and ask: Where did these shocking deficits come from? And you can bet that they will zero in on a simple solution: Cut back or eliminate entirely those very expensive middle class “entitlements,” like Social Security and Medicare.

David Friedman St. James

You don’t need a costume to be nice My account of this experience was prompted by Daniel Dunaief’s column “Wouldn’t-it-be-nice costume ideas for Halloween,” Oct. 26, 2017. While on the checkout line at our local supermarket Oct. 28, I commented on the vibrancy and freshness of the beautiful flowers in the cart in front of me. The purchaser agreed, and we exchanged a few words before checking out. I went to the parking lot to put away my purchases when I was

approached by the person I had encountered in the store. She was carrying one of the containers of flowers. She said, “ I want you to have these.” I was surprised and bewildered. I encouraged her to keep them, but she insisted she wanted me to have them. She asked my name. I told her it was Barbara. She said she was on her way to visit her mother and her mother’s name was also Barbara. I thanked her and she went on her way.

This act of random kindness united me with this stranger. My mood was elated. I smiled all of the way home. I carefully watered the plant and placed it in the hall to greet others. This kind gesture came from the heart and heightened my appreciation of my community and the people within. Every day presents an opportunity to be nice and you don’t even need a costume.

opinion Seeking help from the Force in our daily lives

Y

our phone is across the room. You want it to come to you and you put out your hand. Nothing happens. You scrunch your face and flex the muscles in your outstretched fingers, but, still, nothing happens. Someday the iPhone C (for 100) or iPhone M (1,000) may fly through the air when you reach for it (avoiding people’s heads along the way). And, someday, we may figure out how to use By Daniel Dunaief the energy field described in such detail in the Star Wars franchise. Yes, just as the new iPhone X (a mere 10) arrives at Apple stores, Star Wars is revving its intergalactic engines, bringing an aging Luke

D. None of the above

Skywalker and his rebel friends back, yet again, to battle with evil. At the heart of the franchise is the Force, which would be a convenient skill to have when we can’t find the remote control or our phones. So, what is this Force and do we only acknowledge it in the movies? Thousands of years ago, long before Darth Vader, when primitive people struggled through a drought and needed rain, they prayed, they did rain dances or they carved images of rain in the walls so that future archeologists and artists could analyze and appreciate them years later. I’m not minimizing or trivializing religion or a belief in any deity. I am suggesting, however, that the Force and the battle between good and evil and the free-flowing energy that is a part of this mythology come into play in our daily lives. As we prepare to walk out the door, our shoelace snaps. We don’t have time to take the lace out of the

shoe and put another one in. We’re also not completely sure if we have other laces handy. We demand to know “Why now?” from the lace. We might even get annoyed and say, “No, no, no, come on! I can’t be late.” To whom are we talking? Are we personifying the shoelaces so we can complain? By expressing our frustration to the shoelace, perhaps we are externalizing our anger. But, maybe the dark side is challenging us in a moment of weakness, encouraging us to get angry, to take off our shoes, open the door and throw them deep into woods? We get into our car and turn the key. It doesn’t start. We hold our breath. “Please, please, please, you can do it,” we beg and try again. From whom are we asking for help? Are we seeking assistance from a deity who might be nearby or everywhere? Are we speaking to the inanimate engine, hoping that Bessie, like Herbie

the Love Bug, will come to life, rev her engine and shift back and forth from one tire to the other in a happy car dance? Maybe we promise Bessie a refreshing oil change if we can just get to work today. Or are we talking to a Force that makes things go our way, the way we hope a Force encourages our loved ones to answer the phone while we’re waiting for them or our favorite team to succeed in the moment? We may hope many of the objects we talk to, apart from our electronic friends Siri and Alexa, will respond to our needs, the way earlier people hoped that their efforts affected the weather. Movies may come and go from the big screen, but we live through our own nonintergalactic battles, escaping from the shadows of our fathers, perhaps, or finding our own destinies. As we do, we may turn to some version of the Force, or something like it, for help in a pinch.

Hey, pay attention! Why are we planning to cut taxes?

D

o we need tax cuts? Lots of people agree that our current tax rules are outdated, cumbersome and unfair. On the other hand, there will never be total unanimity on how the tax code should read because one person’s tax cut is another’s tax increase, and for sure no one wants to lose whatever benefits they already have. So the prospect of changes is only palatable as a campaign promise if there would be an overall greater that By Leah S. Dunaief good everyone recognizes. Such a benefit was proposed during the 2016 campaign as a way to recharge the slow economy. And the conversation has continued from there. But hold on. The circumstances have changed. Our economy is no longer sluggish. In fact, it seems to

Between you and me

have taken off. And, unusually, the economies around the globe appear to have also done so, almost in unison. This rare good news bodes well for the United States and others around the world. So, back to my original question: Why do we need a tax cut? If the answer is, for political reasons, that stinks. Just because politicians promised to cut taxes, a regular pledge to get votes, is not good enough to shake the ground on which we live. If the answer is to reallocate wealth, that has never been the role of our capitalist democracy. If the answer is to make more equal the lives of the haves and the havenots going forward, then simply raise the taxes on the haves in proportion to how much they have benefited from our same capitalist society. And finally, if the answer is to raise revenue in order to reduce our unprecedented national debt, then raise taxes across the board proportionately on everyone who enjoys the services provided by life in these United States. Sometimes one can get too close to a problem and not see the bigger

picture. There is a saying that goes: Are we doing things right—or are we doing the right things? To check on whether we are doing things right, we have to engage in the details, the nitty-gritty of the process. In the case of tax reform, we have to hammer out every line to the greater satisfaction of all concerned. But to decide if we are on the right track, that is, if we are doing the right things, we have to stand back and examine the whole picture. Has the situation changed, perhaps rectified itself, or do we still have to help matters along? I suggest the latter and I’ll explain why. Businesses, which will reap three-quarters of the tax proposals over the next 10 years as currently presented, are already, for the most part, doing just fine. That is why the stock market keeps hitting new highs. The prices of the stocks are earnings driven, and the companies we can publicly track via the markets are showing record profits. Why do they need more stimulus? To expand and create more jobs, which is a political mantra? More likely
