North Shore community rallies against intolerance By Victoria Espinoza victoria@tbrnewspapers.com The divisive nature of the 2016 presidential election is still affecting many Americans, and racist, anti-Semitic and other xenophobic actions have occurred in some communities. Local legislators, police officers, school administrators and religious leaders gathered at the Tri Community Youth Association in Huntington Nov. 23 to preach inclusivity and acceptance after several hate-driven incidents were reported. Two weeks ago, police said multiple

‘We are better than this, we can disagree with dignity and without being threatened or going as far as to commit a crime.’ — william spencer swastikas were found spray painted on walls at Northport High School, and town officials said residents have reported hearing hateful language as well. Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta (R-Fort Salonga) said parents and community members need to teach children the importance of accepting one another. “One of these incidents is one too many,” he said during the Huntington event. “It’s our responsibility to speak out against it and educate our youth of the ramifications of such actions.” Suffolk County Legislator William “Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport) echoed the sentiment. “I want to take this opportunity to come together, to speak to our anxieties, our fears, our concerns that have been spurred by acts of predominantly ignorance,” Spencer said at the event. “We now have a new generation of young people that may not have experienced the Holocaust or the civil rights movement, and this call of unity is not speaking against acts for any particular

Leaders concerned by campaign rhetoric speak out, taking action The divisive and inflammatory nature of the 2016 presidential election has raised concerns across the country about Americans’ ability to “come together” now that the dust has begun to settle. One Suffolk County organization was concerned enough to send a letter to school districts with a warning for administrators and teachers. “We are concerned for the safety and well-being of the students of Suffolk County as we know you are as well,” the letter dated Nov. 10 from leaders of the Suffolk County Human Rights Commission and Anti-Bias Task Force read. “We are reaching out to ensure that all school climates are one where students feel safe and supported physically, emotionally and academically.” The Human Rights Commission has existed in Suffolk County since 1963 and it focuses on investigating claims of bias and discrimination. Rabbi Steven Moss has been the chairman of the organization for more than 20 years. He said they were compelled to write the letter in light of incidents, both local and across the country, that have been reported in the aftermath of Election Day. “I’m sure [people] realize bullying has occurred before the election and will continue onward,” Moss said in a phone interview. He said most incidents reported to the commission thus far have involved elementary-level students making references to deporting classmates. Moss said he believes incidents involving younger students can easily be traced

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is among those worried by the tone of the election and the effect it might have going forward.

back to conversations at home, and because of this the commission plans to send a similar letter to local Parent Teacher Associations in the hopes of spreading the conversation beyond classrooms. At Northport High School swastikas were drawn in spray paint on the walls of a theater storage room this week, according to Suffolk County Police. Moss said it is important for school administrators to act decisively and harshly with incidents like these, even if they fall short of constituting a crime, and Northport-East Northport Superintendent Robert Banzer is taking the action seriously. “Our primary objective as a school district is to educate our students in a safe and

respectful environment,” Banzer said in an email. He added an investigation is ongoing. “The recent events in our high school have challenged us and make us realize that, although our students participate in many opportunities to build a respectful and safe environment, work remains. Our high school principal Dan Danbusky is meeting with the student leaders to generate ideas about how best to address not only the recent incident but to help the school community further enhance dignity, respect and acceptance for all.” Banzer also said the administration plans to meet with local religious leaders to gather their input and insights and assess programs to help the district meet its goals of being a more inclusive school community. Port Jefferson Village organized a peaceful vigil that was held Nov. 20 at the Village Center designed to show community support for “all segments of society,” according to a press release. “In response to the fear and hurt felt by so many, Suffolk County needed the opportunity to show everyone our support and commitment to ensuring their freedoms, and to reassure them that they have a safe space here,” Cindy Morris, a Suffolk County resident and co-organizer of the event said in a statement. Moss said he is hoping much of the inflammatory conversation during the election season, especially from the campaign of President-elect Donald Trump (R), was rhetoric designed to dominate news cycles and spike polling numbers and eventually it will die down.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) shared many of the same concerns as Moss and the Human Rights Commission. He announced several actions Nov. 20 to protect civil rights and combat hate crimes in the state, including the creation of a State Police unit to investigate such crimes. He also plans to advance legislation that would expand protections of the state’s human rights law to all students, and to establish a legal defense fund to ensure immigrants have access to representation regardless of status. “New York is, and will always be, a place of acceptance, inclusion and a bastion of hope for all people,” Cuomo said in a statement. “We will never allow fear and intolerance to tear at the fabric of who we are.” The commission’s letter also called on school districts to share programs they already had in place designed to promote unity and togetherness. Some of those include a Gay/Straight Alliance, the AntiDefamation League’s No Place for Hate campaign, the No One Sits Alone Campaign and suicide awareness and prevention programs, to name a few. Banzer indicated Northport has several programs aimed at promoting inclusive school communities through unity and respect, and the district plans to continue that effort going forward. Those who have experienced incidents of hate or discrimination are encouraged to reach out to the Human Rights Commission by calling 631-853-5480 or emailing humanrights@suffolkcountyny.gov.

Suffolk County Police Homicide Squad detectives are investigating the death of a Setauket man who was cutting a tree Monday, Nov. 28, in Avalon Park & Preserve, located on Harbor Road, Stony Brook. Erik Halvorsen, owner of Norse Tree Service in Setauket, was approximately 50 feet up in a tree when he attempted to cut down parts of it at about 11:15 a.m. Police said the trunk then splintered and trapped the business owner against the tree. Halvorsen, 45, who was wearing a safety harness, attempted to free himself

and fell 20 feet. An employee was able to lower Halvorsen to the ground. Director of Avalon Park & Preserve, Katharine Griffiths, said Halvorsen was known to the entire staff. “Erik was a friend to many of us at the park,” she said in a statement. “We are heartbroken over this tragic accident. We extend our deepest condolences to his family and his many friends.” Halvorsen was transported by St. James Fire Department ambulance to Stony Brook University Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Additional reporting by Donna Newman.

Hauppauge elementary school students smile at an event celebrating veterans.

Hauppauge school honors veterans Bretton Woods Elementary School’s annual Veterans Day Assembly paid tribute to 55 veterans — all of whom are related to students or staff members of the school. The veterans were warmly greeted initially by the PTA as they walked up the

flag-lined entrance to the building. Veteran Ronald Barz spoke to the Bretton Woods students about his service, pride and the sacrifices that men and women in the armed forces make to protect our freedoms as Americans.

Several fifth-grade students gave heartwarming speeches about what the veterans mean to them. All the children sang different patriotic songs, which accompanied a video of Bretton Woods loved ones who had previously

or were currently serving in the U.S. military. According to Bretton Woods Principal George Gagliardi, “It was a very inspirational and moving day for all.”

ception –— helping with setting up, parking, refreshments and cleaning up. The Reichert family of Fort Salonga was the major sponsor of the run/walk. Through the Reichert’s, IGA of Fort Salonga and East Northport provided the

refreshments for the event. The foundation is grateful to all of the volunteers and organizations that assisted in the planning and implementation of the run, as well as the Suffolk County Police Department for insuring a safe route.

Turkey trot takes to the North Shore By Bill lAnDon While some were busy thinking about what they’re thankful for, hundreds that flocked to Miller Avenue Elementary School, Shoreham were thinking about crossing the finish line. In cool, dry conditions, more than 400 athletes dashed through the 1-mile, 5K and 5-mile events during the 36th annual Thanksgiving Day Races. The gun for the main 5K event sounded at 8 a.m., and for the men, 2014 ShorehamWading River graduate Ryan Udvadia was the first-place finisher, with a time of 16 minutes, 39.99 seconds. He competes now for the University at Albany’s track-and-field and crosscountry teams.

Clockwise from left, Shoreham-Wading River’s Ryan Udvadia placed first; north Shore residents flocked to Shoreham to compete in the 36th annual Thanksgiving Day Races nov. 24; and a festive runner shows his holiday spirit. The first female to cross the finish line was Maegan Gorman of Wading River in 20:38. Danelle Rose, a Miller Place freshman from Sound Beach, finished second for the women with a time of 20:42. Udvadia has competed in the event 13 times and was thankful for the race and the weather during it. “Running this race is kind of a tradition,” he said. “But it’s fun to come out here and get a good workout.” A two-time All-State selection in cross country at Shoreham-Wading River, Udvadia

still holds the school records in the 3,200-meter and 2-mile events. Proceeds, which came in the way of $15 preregistration and $20 day-of-the-event entry fees, went to the senior scholarship fund. This past June, $10,000 in scholarship money was granted to Shoreham-Wading River’s Class of 2015. In 2014, $11,500 was awarded. The total raised from this year’s race was not available by press time, but proceeds are combined with the annual July 4 ShorehamWading River Foot Races, to create the grand total given to graduates.

Oh Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in this necessity There are none who can withstand your power. Oh show me herein you are my mother. Oh Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. (3 times). Oh Holy Mary, I place this cause in your hands. (3 times). Holy Spirit, you who solve all problems, light all roads so that I can obtain my goals. You gave me the divine gift to forgive and forget all evil against me, and that in all instances of my life, you are with me. I want in this short prayer to thank you for all things as you confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you in eternal glory. Thank you for your mercy toward me and mine. G.Q. The person must say this prayer 3 consecutive days. The request will be granted. This prayer must be published after the favor has been granted.

Time to end the attacks on Obama and Hillary

Photo by Victoria Espinoza

Suffolk County Legislator William “Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport) holds up signs from a peace rally in Northport.

Unity and vigilance have never been more important Last week, in response to growing tensions and reprehensible actions following the presidential election, leaders from across the Huntington area, including elected officials from both parties, gathered for a press conference to denounce hate and ignorance. The Suffolk County Human Rights Commission also sent a letter to school districts warning teachers and administrators to be on the lookout for incidents of bullying that could be motivated by hate. Port Jefferson Village hosted a peaceful vigil as a symbol of unity for community members of every conceivable background last week. While the editorial staff is slightly concerned events like this are necessary in 2016, we are encouraged that leaders throughout our North Shore communities and across party lines are being proactive in trying to send a clear message: America is a land of opportunity and acceptance for people of all races, genders, nationalities, sexual orientations and religions, and they want it to remain that way. Incidents of hate have occurred across the county, state and country in recent weeks. “One of these incidents is one too many,” Leg. Rob Trotta (R-Fort Salonga) said during the Huntington event. “It’s our responsibility to speak out against it and educate our youth of the ramifications of such actions.” We agree wholeheartedly with Trotta, and plan to do everything we can to continue shining a light on incidents, both positive and negative, relating to this topic, going forward. We’ll need our readers to help us by doing the same.

I was dismayed by the vitriolic letter written by the Rev. Ronald Stelzer appearing in The Times of Smithtown on Thanksgiving. How sad that a man of the cloth, instead of calling for an end to the divisiveness and hateful words that have plagued our nation for well over a year, continues to engage in mean-spirited partisan invective. The election is over and Donald Trump is the President-elect, in spite of having received more than two million fewer votes than his opponent. You would think that would be enough for the good reverend. What possible purpose is served by more vilification, by yet another venomous and

baseless attack on Hillary Clinton and President Obama? You would think a man of the cloth would be able to consider the big picture and understand that many good people, spiritual people, devout people voted for Hillary Clinton. You would think he would understand that the accusations of corruption, mendacity, criminality, fraud, divisiveness, chaos, and amorality he directs at Hillary Clinton could just as easily be turned around and directed at Donald Trump. Even Donald Trump himself has shown more generosity of spirit to his defeated opponent. Again, what is the point of demonizing Hillary Clinton and President Obama yet again? The election

is over. One wonders what George Washington and Abraham Lincoln would make of the Rev. Stelzer’s rhetoric. Not much binding up the nation’s wounds here. It seems the Rev. Stelzer would prefer charity towards none and malice towards all who don’t share his politics. I would remind the good reverend that God is neither a Democrat nor a Republican. Continuing to engage in vituperation to sow further division instead of showing a little forbearance sets a pretty poor example.

David Friedman St. James

A question of double standards In Reverend Ronald Stelzer’s Nov. 24 letter (The Port Times Record), he expresses relief that Hillary Clinton was not elected, claiming that her political career has been fraught with “corruption, [and] mendacity.” While I will not say that Clinton was a perfect candidate, I think it’s important to point out the double standard set up by these remarks. Recently, Donald Trump met with British politician Nigel Farage, and encouraged Farage to oppose offshore wind farms, as they would be detrimental to the view from Trump’s golf course. This blending of personal interests and politics is exactly what Clinton was criticized for, and it is important to note that Trump seems to be just as willing to use his newfound political standing to bolster his own interests. There is a danger, I think, in

supporting personalities rather than principles, and when we unequivocally support people like Trump, we never correct that problem. I also want to question Reverend Stelzer’s discussion of what he calls “political correctness.” He claims that it is has led to “disdain for the traditional beliefs and morals … of America.” The problem is that “political correctness” is a phrase used by right wing groups to dismiss as merely “political” the idea that we should encourage respect towards all people. I’m sure that the reverend, being a person of faith, would agree with the idea that we must treat all people with respect, so I find it hard to understand what objection remains to this principle after the misleading “politically correct” description is removed. This fight to put everyone on an equal playing field is what

makes America great, and I would argue that many of Trump’s comments about women, Muslims and people of color have worked against this goal of reaching equality. In fact, they have made many Americans feel that they don’t have a seat at the table and are not part of our conversation. I recognize that many are thrilled by Trump’s election, and I truly hope that he ends up being the most honest and inclusive president we’ve had yet. But I also hope we can all understand why some Americans are wary and even scared. These people are not opposed to America and its founding moral principles, they simply want to be welcome to participate in the process of making America an even better place for all.

opinion The tweeted verbal thunderbolts of the next president

V

erbs await like a collection of colors, quivering, shaking and jumping on their palettes to define and describe the unfolding scene. What verbs will we use to describe the future president of the United States, whose name itself can be a verb? Well, for starters, he tweets. We know that fact through his candidacy and it’s a pattern that continues now that he is assembling a cabinet and as he awaits his turn as president. His By Daniel Dunaief tweets represent his direct-to-thepeople message, cutting out the middle man of the media. As with pharmaceutical companies that market their products directly

D. None of the above

to consumers, sometimes Trump’s tweet messages, which crackle like thunderbolts from his fingers, should come with a warning. For example, “Don’t operate heavy equipment while listening to these tweets, which may cause shortness of breath,” or, “If you find yourself shouting approval or disapproval in response to these tweets, try not to read them in church, in a library or any place where shouting could cause a crisis.” When he communicates with the populace, with American leaders or with foreign leaders, what verbs will fill the canvas? He often seems to warn, to threaten and to demand. Maybe he believes American greatness starts with a tough president who insists America and its interests go directly to the front of any line. In recent days, he has weighed in on the discussion about the election, claiming widespread voter fraud prevented him from winning the popular vote “beauty contest.”

Old friendships are golden

T

here were two extra place settings during our Thanksgiving weekend. They were for a couple we met when my husband and her husband were serving at Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, Texas, some 50 years ago — a golden anniversary of sorts. The idea that we met half-a-century ago and have maintained our connection is astonishing and lovely By Leah S. Dunaief because we were quite fond of them then and are happy to still be friends now. When they left the service, about a year before we did, they returned to their home state of North Carolina, and we, of course, returned to New York. Over the years, we have kept up sporadically through Christmas cards stuffed with letters about our lives.

Between you and me

Our family wound up at Sheppard because we made the right decision for the wrong reasons — as so often happens in life. Just after my husband began his internship at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, he came home one evening somewhat puzzled. “Look,” he showed me paperwork, “if I agree to enter this lottery called the Berry Plan, I will be allowed to finish my residency in the specialty I choose, but then I will have to go into the military for two years. The benefit is that I will not be drafted out of my training before I finish, but I will delay starting my practice two years while I am serving Uncle Sam. What should I do?” “Do it, do it!” I urged. “They will send us to Germany or Japan and we will get to see the world.” I yearned to travel and we had not had the chance or the means. The year was 1963, and aside from a few military advisers in Vietnam, there was no war involving the United States. There was a draft but we were at peace. “OK,” my husband said, still seeming dubious. “But only about

Through his tweets, he also leveled attacks against reporters he derides for disagreeing with him. I get it: As an agent of change, Trump may feel it’s his job not to highlight everything that’s going well with the country or to shout encouragement. That, he may believe, would be like telling a kid who has struck out continuously that he’s having a great game. Shifting from the visuals of colors on a page to the sounds at a pep rally, will the Trump presidency repeat similar notes with a single tone? Will he continue to castigate, to criticize, to claim and to attack? Those are just a few of the verbs that describe the approach Candidate Trump took on the contentious campaign trail. At some point, does President Trump become like a strong-willed character in a compelling novel? Will his experiences enable him to make a transition to becoming a president who emits a different tone and who leads to a symphony of greatness that comes

from every part of the country? Will the cajoling, the criticizing and the arguing transition to educating, inspiring and elevating? Yes, I know his approach and policies may help educate more Americans and may help bridge the gap between the testing levels American students reach compared with students in other nations. Certainly, as Trump demonstrated during his campaign stops, he can and has rallied people. What actions, what verbs, will describe the way Americans and, indeed, people around the world, react to his message? As an agent of change after the polished rhetoric of President Obama, Trump may not want to compete and, indeed, may sprint away from the pontifications his predecessor proffered. That, however, doesn’t preclude Trump from the kinds of verbs we hope we can employ to fill the pages of the next four years. Will he encourage, empower and reassure Americans about the government that supports, protects and serves them?

5 percent of those who apply are selected.” He went off the next morning with the completed paperwork and the two of us promptly forgot about the whole matter. That is, until the next spring when he came home and announced, still unsure what he had gotten us into, that he had been selected. I was happy at the prospect of travel in our future. With the benefit of hindsight, you know that by 1965, we were in a hot war and I will tell you that many physicians were drafted out of their specialty training and sent to Vietnam as general medical officers. Some of them never returned. We, meanwhile, now had one child and a second on the way when we were sent to Texas. It was not Germany or Japan, it wasn’t even California or New Jersey, as we had requested when asked by the Air Force, but it was — just by dumb luck — stateside, which meant we could be together. In fact, we had a house to live in, our first, with a washer and dryer, and each child had his own room. Wichita Falls is not a particularly

beautiful place, as far as scenery goes. There were no real trees, little grass, no bodies of water and only an occasional bit of mesquite shrub blowing across the brown dirt. But it was heaven for us, and we were thankful to be there for the duration of the two years. We learned to eat chicken fried steak and barbecued beef on a bun, and before too long our third child was on the way. It was on the base that we met our friends, who were serving under similar circumstances. He was a pediatrician who worked alongside my husband at the hospital, and with his wife they also eventually had three children, went home and started their professional lives together. But we stayed in touch, as I have explained, and they have rejoined my family with lots of conversation and laughter. Old friends are treasures because they are irreplaceable. We are older now, quite a bit older, and we might not have recognized each other immediately on the street. But the basic persons that we were are intact.
