Family Legacy Remembered After Woman Dies in Driveway Accident BY DONNA DEEDY DONNA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Nancy Richard died tragically Monday, Dec. 2, after being struck by a car driven by her husband, Peter, who was backing out of their driveway at their Fort Salonga home. After walking her grandchild to the bus stop, Richard was returning to her home at 9 Concord Drive, when she was struck by a 2015 Mercedes S550 at 7:30 a.m. Nancy Richard, 79, was transported to Huntington Hospital where she was pronounced dead. Peter Richard, 83, was not injured. Suffolk County police state that the vehicle was impounded for a safety check. The accident occurred just a little more than one year after the family donated more than $3.5 million to establish the expansion of the pediatric emergency care unit of Stony Brook University Hospital. The Stony Brook Children’s Hospital lobby was named in the family’s honor in recognition of that gift. The university has acknowledged the couple’s philanthropic effort has meant better services for the families and children on Long Island.

“Nancy Richard was a remarkable friend of Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, and all of us send our heartfelt condolences to Peter and the entire Richard family,” said Dr.

Once a facility that manufacturerd helicopter blades, Gyrodyne Flowerfield is planning a nine-lot subdivision that critics say potentially threatens the quality of life along the Stony Brook and St. James corridor. Image from the Town of Smithtown

Gyrodyne Subdivision Plans up for Review DONNA DEEDY DONNA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Developers of the Gyrodyne complex in St. James are moving forward with plans to subdivide and potentially develop the 75acre site known as Flowerfield. The Town of Smithtown Planning Board will consider a nine-lot subdivision for the complex at its Dec. 11 meeting. “The Town Environmental has found the Draft Environmental Impact Statement to be complete and is preparing a resolution for the Planning Board to accept the DEIS as complete at their next meeting on Dec. 11,” said Peter Hans, director of the town planning department. The 2,900 page statement is not yet publicly available. Once the Planning Board accepts the report as complete, likely at the Dec. 11 meeting, the document will be posted online and the public comment period will begin. Subdivision plans obtained from the Town indicate that the proposed development is extensive. The 75-acre complex currently includes a catering hall, existing light industrial buildings and open space. The proposal subdivides the lot into nine parcels that include one for the existing catering hall, one for the industrial building and a third for open space. Six of the nine proposed sublots would be for new development. Development plans include a 150-room hotel with a restaurant and conference hall, two large-scale medical office parks, one at 75,000 square feet and another at 55,000 square feet, plus two separate 110unit assisted living centers and a 7-acre sewer treatment facility.

If approved, the project will become one of the largest commercial transformations in an otherwise residential and agricultural setting along Route 25A in the St. James hamlet. New York State Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket) said the project, if approved, is a real threat to the quality of life in this area of the North Shore, with traffic being the more immediate concern and water quality threatened over time. “This project is a real threat to the water chemistry of Stony Brook Harbor,” he said. He estimates that the treated sewage from the site would upwell into the harbor within two to five years. Aside from the environmental and water quality concerns, Englebright said that the project is a classic case of proposed overdevelopment. “The whole thing is a complete traffic nightmare,” he said. “Roadways are oversubscribed. Route 25A is already crowded and by extension, we find that Stony Brook Road just can’t handle any more traffic.” The area, the assemblyman said, is not really a heavy development zone. The property is zoned light industrial, or LI. It does not

require a zone change, town officials said, since the identified uses are conceptual at this time. If the developers decide to move forward with a hotel or assisted living facility, those uses would require Special Exception approvals from the Town Board and site plan approval. Office buildings would require only site plan approval. Englebright encourages people to express their concerns and appeal to the decisionmakers in Smithtown. The subdivision process began when the Smithtown Planning Board adopted May 9, 2018, a State Environmental Quality Review Act Positive Declaration. The declaration, which is simply a determination that the project has the potential to result in a significant environmental impact, establishes that an Environmental Impact Statement would be required. The applicant has now completed a Draft Environmental Impact Statement. The Planning Board is expected to accept the report

as complete at its next meeting. The Town will then file with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation a Notice of Completion of a DEIS. The filing of the Notice of Completion opens the public comment period, which has to run at least 30 days. The Town anticipates that the Planning Board will hold a public hearing on the Gyrodyne DEIS in January. Following the close of the public comment period, a final DEIS will have to be prepared that responds to the comments received, and then the Planning Board would have to adopt a findings statement. The Planning Board will not be able to act on the pending subdivision until the FEIS and Findings Statement have been adopted. The process, though, is months away. Representatives from Gyrodyne did not respond to telephone messages before going to print.

Smithtown Plans Long Beach Road Flood Project BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

The Town of Smithtown is hoping to mitigate flooding, amid rising sea levels, on a road that stretches out into the Long Island waters to the Long Beach peninsula. Long Beach Road is subject to flooding more than 36 times each year, according to town officials. The proposed project would reduce the rate of flooding to one or two incidents per year. It is expected to cost up to $854,000 for less than a third of a mile of Long Beach Road. The project would raise 1,500 feet of Long Beach Road by an average of 1.7 feet, according to Federal Emergency Management Agency grant documents. The work done would stabilize the slope on the seaward side of the road, using a combination of rock, vegetation, erosion control mats and other natural stabilization methods. Stormwater improvements would be incorporated into the project design as well. The town would receive up $717,375 in FEMA funds that would be distributed by the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services. “Long Beach Road is a place that has historically flooded,” Nicole Garguilo, town spokeswoman said. Town officials say higher sea levels and worsening weather over the years have shown the need for such a project as constant flooding could strand residents and vehicles who are on the peninsula. Since 1900, New York has experienced at least a foot of sea level rise, mostly due to expansion of warming ocean water, according to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The DEC projects sea levels will rise an additional 2 to 10 inches in the 2020s. The Long Beach Road accesses the Long Beach Town Park, the Smithtown Bay Yacht Club and Otto Schubert Beach. The peninsula is also home to scores of residential properties that have been adversely impacted by the flooding. Carol and Drew Wendelken live out on the Long Beach peninsula and own a restaurant in Wading River. Getting to and from work is sometimes problematic. “We have lost our brakes driving through the flooding,” she said. “But we’ve learned how to deal with it.” This past Saturday, she said, they had to wait for more than an hour for the tide to recede. But they are used to timing it. “It’s always a case of high tide and full moon and a storm system. Those three ingredients create the flooding. The winds, too, impact it. There are times when you

cannot get out at all. In September, the Suffolk County Legislature approved a measure requiring the county’s Department of Public Works to take rises in sea level into consideration when planning major roadwork in an effort to curb flooding and potential future damage. FEMA does not establish completion frames for its subgrants, but the performance period ends on Nov. 14, 2020.

Small Business Saturday Sees Mixed Shopping Results BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM While Thanksgiving weekend is synonymous with stuffing one’s mouth with turkey and leftovers, it has been transformed into the time of the year when people take advantage of some of the best sales right before the thick of the holiday season. But beyond big box stores and online, local small businesses still shuffle for room and attention amongst giants like Amazon. From 2010-18, spending on Small Business Saturday had reached a reported estimate of $103 billion, according to data from American Express. It was estimated that in 2018 more than 104 million people shopped and dined on Small Business Saturday generating a record $17.8 billion in reported spending — up from $12.9 million in 2017. This past Saturday, U.S. consumers spent $19.6 billion at small businesses, according to survey data from American Express and the National Federation of Independent Business. For small businesses, everything can be a factor for foot traffic, whether it’s the economy, the weather, even construction just down the road. Here’s what a few business owners across the North Shore had to say on how they did on the busy shopping weekend.

Hospital as a worthwhile project to support. In a profile posted on the university’s website, she recognized her parents’ strong family values and how the donation instilled a strong sense of pride: “My parents’ priority in their life is their children,” Habberstad stated. “And it’s not just their kids; it’s their grandchildren, it’s everybody’s kids. Everybody’s kids are so important, and they are Nanny and Pop to everybody. They’re Nanny and Pop to hundreds of kids.”

Peter Richard was the longtime executive vice president of the P.C. Richard & Son chain of appliance and electronics stores. The retailer has serviced Long Island for more than 110 years. Peter is the grandson of the store founder Pieter Christian (P.C.) Richard. The business today has 66 showrooms in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania, three distribution centers and two service centers. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations in Nancy Richard’s memory to Stony Brook Children’s Hospital at stonybrook.edu/childrenshospitalgiving. Funeral services have not yet been announced.

The East End Shirt Co., 3 Mill Creek Road, Port Jefferson — owner Mary Joy Pipe: Pipe has been at the head of the famed custom screen-printed design shop for years, and was recently named president of the Greater Port Jefferson Chamber of Commerce. “We had a very good day and we were pleased with how many people came out. It was nice to how customers were expressing their support for local businesses. “My business gets a lot of transient customers [from the village] but we also had a lot of locals and repeat customers come in. Sales were up a little bit from last year — we always try to offer great deals. “Being in business for 40 years, I think the nice weather on Saturday really helped and I think it helped other businesses in the area as well. “I think it's good to show that there can be a happy medium of online and small business shopping.”

Niche Boutique, 430-11 N. Country Road, St. James — owner Christine Mazelis: Niche Boutique, which was once located on Lake Avenue, moved over onto North Country Road earlier this year, opening in time for the Black Friday weekend. “The store was offering 10-30 percent off a minimum purchase of $50. “We had a really nice day, with the new location we have definitely noticed the increase in foot traffic. There is definitely a different vibe in this location. I was very happy with the turnout and sales, we had returning and new customers coming throughout the day.” Red Shirt Comics, 322 Main St., Port Jefferson — owner Josh Darbee: Red Shirt Comics, which opened in 2017, has been a mainstay for the comics community in the local area. Last year, Darbee said he saw a steady stream of customers walk through his doors Small Business Saturday. “We had Black Friday sales throughout the weekend. ... Saturday went pretty poorly we didn’t see the foot traffic and sales as in years past. “The weather might have had something to do with it, people are not going to go out as much when it’s cold. “We saw an initial crowd of holiday customers earlier in November. The people that did stop by [Saturday] bought a lot of books, periodicals and comic books.” The Gift Corner, 157 N. Country Road, Mount Sinai — owner Marion Bernholz: The Gift Corner owner Bernholz has over the last several years gone to lengths to promote her store on the Black Friday weekend. Over the past few years she reported good sales on Small Business Saturday. “We had a wonderful day. It was one of our best Small Business Saturday [events], sales were way up. “We had so many regulars and new customers come in throughout the day. “We have a good following [of customers] and many of them told us that they came out just to support us on Saturday. “People are decorating their houses for the holidays, so many were buying Christmas signs, ornaments and other festive items. We have a lot of different areas in the store so a lot of customers we are trying to find some nice gifts for their families or their dogs. “I think it is really refreshing that people continue to come out on Small Business Saturday and remember that we are here.”

Smithtown School District

Native American Life in the Classroom

As a culminating activity to their lessons on Native American history, the first-grade classes at Dogwood Elementary School in the Smithtown Central School District participated in hands-on learning centers Nov. 26. Gathered by the teepee and around the deerskin rug, the students

learned about some of the Native American traditions and the roles of the different members of the family. Students touched antlers, turtle shells and feathers as they gathered in a circle for storytelling time. On display around them were the Native American habitat posters they created and dream catchers that hung from the ceiling. Wearing their Native American shirts that featured

different symbols, one classroom station also created hats using the symbols. Students colored and created totem poles in another learning station. During the hunting and fishing portion of the centers, students used magnetics on a fishing pole to catch their fish for dinner. Using spears and bows and arrows, the students tried their hands at hunting buffalo.

Head of the Harbor Coalition Calls on Officials for Oversight Neighbors Question Mercer Estate Expansion

Open Letter to Mayor Doug Dahlgard

The newly formed Head of the Harbor The coalition also pointed out that Joint Neighborhood Preservation Coalition has Coastal Commission is poised to reconsider called upon the Village of Head of the Harbor its prior determination now that it has seen Planning Board chairman, Harlan Fischer, the full Environmental Assessment Form and and Mayor Doug Dahlgard to postpone the other application documents. All of these factors, in our opinion, are an scheduled Dec. 10 meeting to consider the application of Robert Mercer’s 2 Sunset Drive indication of “confusion and dysfunction in LLC to construct new structures adjacent to Village Hall.” Only through transparency can the public Harbor Road in Head of the Harbor Village. decide if they want a [See open letter on right.] 24,000 square foot car The Planning Board called storage, medical center, and noticed a meeting asking the apartment building, gas public’s input on a proposed 8,600 station, spa, motel in square foot building, but now we their backyard.” know Mercer’s real plan calls for The Planning Board more than 24,000 square feet in is scheduled to hold a new construction. Dec. 10 public hearing If the Planning Board meets to consider 2 Sunset it would be doing so under false LLC’s application pretenses, in a classic bait and to build a 8,633 switch. We call upon the Planning square foot accessory Board to postpone its meeting, building. However, regroup and finally be open with the Neighborhood the public … We ask that the Preservation Coalition Planning Board once and for all, Anthony Coates uncovered the fact lay all information on Mercer’s that the true size of project on the table for the the Mercer complex will be approximately community to see. By considering only one building, 24,000 square feet. The size and scope of Mercer’s project knowing there is another to be built, the planning board is allowing Mercer to may well mean that it should be subject to “segment” the review, and as such they further environmental review. … This is won’t consider the scope and impact of the the largest project undertaken in the village in 50 years, we are a small town, and all of entire development on our village. We question whether the Planning Board our residents use Harbor Road. It’s time for has authority to review and approve the Village Hall to be neighborly and give the project, the coalition believes the size of the public all of the information it needs so project as a whole can be properly considered the people can be heard on this huge, game an as-of-right accessory use, or whether a changing subdivision. Anthony Coates, Spokesperson use variance is required from the Board of Neighborhood Preservation Coalition Zoning Appeals.

Dear Mayor Dahlgard and Chairman Fischer, I write now with a sense of urgency to request that the Village move quickly to postpone a scheduled Dec. 10 public hearing on this proposal to construct three new buildings with commercial components on residential property in light of numerous unanswered questions being raised about the scope of the plan and its potential impacts on historic and cultural resources, including a rare glacial kettlehole on the project site. The coalition respectfully requests that you direct your immediate focused attention to numerous contradictions, errors and omissions contained in the documents submitted by representatives of the applicant, engage qualified professionals to review the assertions made in the application documents regarding compliance with the village code and the Town of Smithtown Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan (LWRP), and take steps to ensure that the interests of the village and its residents are protected in the process being carried out under your authority and oversight. Most importantly, before any further review of the application is undertaken, the village must address the fundamental question whether the project as proposed, given its numerous commercial use components, can legitimately be considered an as-of-right accessory use in a residential zone, or in the alternative, whether, as the coalition contends, a use variance would be required. It is the coalition’s position and expectation that the latter is the case, and that, as a result, the Planning Board lacks authority to review and approve the application before it. Setting aside this basic legal question, the coalition hereby establishes its formal objection to lack of transparency and disjointed handling of the multiple reviews of the project to date without any notice to the public, and more importantly, to village residents. The coalition respectfully requests that you

direct your immediate focused attention to numerous contradictions, errors and omissions contained in the documents submitted by representatives of the applicant, engage qualified professionals to review the assertions made in the application documents regarding compliance with the village code and the Town of Smithtown LWRP, and take steps to ensure that the interests of the village and its residents are protected in the process being carried out under your authority and oversight. We are very concerned that the Planning Board has apparently already taken initial steps required to advance the plan by approving the abandonment of lots proposed by the applicant without making adjoining property owners or residents of the village aware of the project. As of this date, no detailed information regarding the project has been provided to neighbors or residents of the village. Furthermore, because the Planning Board called and noticed a meeting asking the public’s input for a single 8,600 square foot building, which we now know is part of a larger plan that calls for more three separate buildings totaling more than 24,000 square feet the Planning Board would be meeting under false pretenses. The coalition wants to emphasize that its concerns have nothing to do with who the applicant is, but only the need to protect the rural character of the community as required under the village code, to fully assess the impacts that any development proposal will have on historic and cultural resources, and to ensure the level of transparency is required of government in 2019. We look forward to working with you to ensure that the village’s review of the proposal is based on full and complete information and that the interest of all village residents are well served by the process. Sincerely, Anthony Coates

Smithtown Dedicates Post Office to Former Congressman

Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) was joined by local elected officials, post office officials and the friends and family of former NY-1 Congressman Bill Carney to dedicate the Smithtown Post Office in his honor. “Congressman Carney was an incredible man who fought tirelessly for his constituents every day,” Zeldin said. “Even before his life in politics, his commitment to serving his country and community never wavered.” Carney served eight years in Congress and was a member of the Conservative Party. As a member of the Armed Services Committee, according to obituaries after his death in May 2017, Carney sponsored a bill to reduce strategic arms and freeze nuclear weapons, which was backed by then President Ronald Reagan (R). Carney was also known for supporting the $4.5 billion Shoreham nuclear project. Carney left office in January 1987. Zeldin introduced legislation to honor the life and legacy of the former congressman by renaming in his honor the Smithtown Post Office. Following House and Senate passage, this legislation was signed into law this past August to make this dedication possible. “Bill was a beloved husband, father and grandfather. For our community, for New York’s 1st Congressional District, for our nation and for the ideals in which he believed, he was a fighter until the very end,” said a Carney family member. “Bill loved the 1st Congressional District and it was his highest honor serving its people. Smithtown was our family’s home for decades, and it is particularly meaningful that this Post Office continues to serve the people about whom he cared so deeply.” Before serving in Congress, Carney served in the Suffolk County Legislature and United States Army.

The Times of Smithtown ran a detailed story “Leadership Under Challenge in St. James Fire District” in its Nov. 21 issue, which can also be found online at www.tbrnewsmedia.com. It provides more in-depth information about the candidates positions. Gabrielsen said he is in favor of low taxes, better service and two firehouses. He is supported by two current commissioners who support a similar platform. He believes the district is wasting money on lawsuits. Davis wants to create a citizens advisory board comprised of elected officials and community members. Kearney, who has been a member of the fire district for 39 years, is asking for support. His in-depth knowledge of financial controls and fiscal management, he said, is worth supporting. Residents can vote between 3 and 9 p.m. at the fire station at 221 Jefferson Ave. and at the Fairfield Condo, 1 Fairfield Drive in St. James.

Community News St. James Students Learn Energy Efficiency Students at St. James Elementary School are “energywise” today, thanks to PSEG Long Island and The National Theatre for Children. Students enjoyed interacting with the NTC performers during the live Energized Guyz theater performance, which taught them about energy and how to save it. PSEG Long Island brings shows to local schools throughout the year to help kids learn at a young age how and why it is important to save energy. St. James students are among the 40,000

students on Long Island and in the Rockaways to see The Conservation Caper this fall. This is the sixth season the program has been offered by PSEG Long Island to area schools free of charge. From September through December, kindergarten through sixth-grade students at 100 schools will be entertained by the show. The Conservation Caper focuses on four key takeaways and is meant to spark conversations in the classroom on energy efficiency. During the 20-minute performance, students learn

Bulls Nudge Out Marauders BY BILL LANDON DESK@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM The Bulls of Smithtown West girls basketball team opened their season on the right hoof when they scored first and never looked back, besting Bay Shore 59-51 in a nonleague opener Dec. 3. The Bulls led by 7 to open the second quarter and took 13-point lead at the half. Bay Shore nibbled its way back out scoring Smithtown West in the final two quarters, but it was too little too late. Sophomore co-captain Brianna Guglielmo led the way for the Bulls with eight field goals and four free throws.

Sophomore Madison Misser drained three triples, a field goal and four free throws and senior Jillian Meaney scored 10. The Bulls have three more nonleague games before they open league play on the road against Copiague Dec. 13. Tipoff is at 4:30 p.m. Photos clockwise from right: Senior forward Madison Flynn drives the baseline for the Bulls in a nonleague season opener against Bay Shore Dec. 3; sophomore guard Ryann Reynolds drives the baseline; sophomore guard Karsyn Kondracki shoots a 3-pointer; sophomore forward Guglielmo drives the lane for Smithtown West.

Opinion

Give Well

The season for giving is here, and while North Shore residents plan their holiday feasts, it’s a good time to consider the plight of people less fortunate. Imagine, more than 89,000 children on Long Island are hungry, according to Hauppauge-based Long Island Cares. These children aren’t dreaming of visions of sugarplums, they are wishing for substantial meals to get them and their families through the day. Some centers, such as the Community Food Council on East 5th Street in Huntington Station, are reporting a 33 percent increase in demand over the last three months. It’s unclear why the sudden surge in food insecurities but the food banks are in need of supplies and volunteers, and counting on the local community to find ways to pitch in. So, it’s a good time to develop a plan. When preparing to donate to a food bank, a good rule of thumb is to call the nonprofit or visit its website to see what is needed. During this time of year, many have volunteers on hand to put together holiday meals. Throughout the year, depending on donations, there may be a surplus of one item and a deficit of another. While many may be inclined to reach into their pantry to find nonperishables, a cash donation can often be the most beneficial to nonprofits, so they can turn around and buy food in bulk. This can also save volunteers time, because they don’t need to go through items looking at expiration dates. If one wants to donate food, a trip to the supermarket is the best bet to ensure the donated items aren’t expired. Though if your cabinets are bursting at the seams, reach in and make sure to check expiration dates on cans and boxes. Also, look cans over to ensure they are not dented or leaking and that boxes aren’t damaged. And steer away from food in glass jars as these containers can easily break. Take into consideration more nutritious options, too, such as cereals high in fiber, whole wheat pasta and low sodium soups and vegetables. When it comes to any kind of mixes, remember many households may be out of milk or eggs, so choose a mix that can be used with water. Another thing to consider is purchasing toiletries such as toothpaste, deodorant, diapers and toilet paper. To increase the spirit of giving, organize your local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops or religion classes or get your children involved. Or, if you already know of a group organizing a food drive, contribute your items to the event. Collecting food for those in need is a wonderful way to inspire young ones to help others and it encourages them to continue charitable pursuits when they reach their goals or succeed them. In our coverage area, in addition to Long Island Cares and the Community Food Council, there are the Smithtown Emergency Food Pantry, St. Anthony of Padua R.C. Church in Rocky Point, St. Cuthbert’s Episcopal Church in Selden, Ecumenical Lay Council Pantry through the First Presbyterian Church in Northport, St. Gerard Majella R.C. Church in Port Jefferson Station, Our Daily Bread Food Pantry in Setauket and many more. As the lights come down in a few weeks, remember when it comes to food banks, the hungry keep coming. The spirit of giving can last all year round as these organizations are always in need of donations no matter what month on the calendar. The gift of time, too, is also a generous way to contribute.

Letters to the Editor

Northport School District Should Move to Electric Buses It was horrifying for parents to discover a school bus fueling station next to Northport Middle School. But instead of moving the depot, or trying to regulate it, why doesn’t the school district do the sensible thing and switch

to an electric fleet? Electric school buses have already been successfully adopted in Copiague and, most recently, in Bay Shore. They are clean, with no greenhouse gas emissions, a bargain in the long run,

with little maintenance and repair and a good faith move for children who are inheriting a world we have nearly ruined for them with global warming. Alexa Marinos North Babylon

in The Federalist Papers. Proper protocol of having a fair and orderly process with bipartisanship and transparency is imperative (sunlight is the best disinfectant). This is not what we see. The Dems are weaponizing impeachment, taking their hatred for Trump and resistance into the House of Representatives. Schiff is running a kangaroo court in the dark. He leaks selective info to push their perspective. It looks like “Trump derangement syndrome” progressed to “Trump insanity syndrome.” It’s pervasive and it’s real. The symptoms display hatred, division and deception, and the media is complicit playing a crucial part of bolstering the antiTrump resistance promoting their weekly repetitious false sound bites. Just think of how crazy this sounds: The media stated that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi [the late ISIS leader] was an austere religious scholar,

and portrayed a 15-year-old boy wearing a MAGA hat as a terrorist. And think, we as taxpayers are paying members of Congress to impeach a president who has accomplished more than any other president in spite of the resistance movement. The Democrats are still trying to undo the 2016 election and affect 2020 because they know the current list of candidates will never beat Trump. This will be the first president to be impeached in the House only and be reelected to do the people’s work. Game over for the media’s political manipulation. It is imperative we fight to maintain the rule of law, regardless of what any of us think about Trump. We have far more to lose than an election. Carol Florio Lisa Pius Old Field

Political Theatrics The Dems are running a mixed up bunch of egos that can’t quite figure out if they should make a sharp left turn, or bear left or stay in the middle, but their policies are revealing delusional ideas that will drive America off of the cliff. What has been persistent is this “resistance” movement that is destroying the core pillars of American institutions. Let the games begin. Speaker Nancy [Pelosi, D-Calif.] continues her cunning political games, but first delegated the dirty work to U.S. Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) in the House Judiciary Committee which resulted in a failed Mueller Report to impeach President Donald Trump (R), and quickly skipped to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) in the House Intelligence Committee. They have crossed all political boundaries breaking rules and standards along the way. The seriousness of impeachment was communicated by Alexander Hamilton

This Play Offers A Lighthearted Respite from Political Headlines

W

hat is it about “The Play That Goes Wrong” that is just so right for so many people, including me? My wife and I recently went to this farcical show, where my wife informed me that she, the couple attending the performance with us, and just about everyone around us could tell how much I enjoyed the experience. In case you haven’t heard about D. None it and can’t figure of the above it out from the tiBY DANIEL DUNAIEF tle, “The Play That Goes Wrong” is an absurd show where everything goes so wrong — the props, the ac-

tors, the staging, the lighting and the music. Indeed, it’s almost challenging to follow the simple murder mystery plot amid gales of laughter, much of it coming from me. My family has numerous qualities that we have shared from one generation to the next. My late father laughed so hard at the pratfalls and theater-of-the-absurd dialogue of Danny Kaye movies like “The Court Jester” (1955) that I can still picture him gasping for air as he wiped away the tears slaloming down his face, where they joined the muddy sneaker stains, the dirty paw prints and the soda spills on a white carpet that chronicled our active lives. The current play follows in the footsteps of Kaye, Benny Hill, the Three Stooges and a host of other characters who do anything for a laugh, stepping on rakes that slam into their heads or interacting in nonsensical ways with other actors as a part of a skit. The show makes the sketch comedy of many of today’s late night shows appear pedestrian by comparison. Granted, the plot follows a

singular theme and, once completed, can and does create a full length and ridiculous drama. Now, some people may find the pedestrian antics of the cast too absurd. I agree that the show isn’t for everyone and doesn’t provide life lessons, memorable songs, gritty entertainment or an insightful view of existence. And yet, it does offer much needed self-parody and perspective on a country thoroughly divided by events in Washington, D.C. The people who run our country seem intent on making their supporters cheer, while their detractors roll their eyes, shake their heads and seek solace from people who share their beliefs. Fine, but, the actors in a show written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields of the Mischief Theatre Company, seem intent on roping as much of the audience as possible into their shenanigans. One of the actors, who plays Cecil Haversham, seems delighted by the presence of the audience. He plays to the crowd so often that he shares

in their enthusiasm when he does something well or when the crowd appreciates an ongoing joke. This intentionally imperfect play isn’t perfectly imperfect, either. Some moments fall flat. The second half of the show, which is shorter than the first, isn’t quite as engaging, entertaining and uproarious. Knowing the general plot of the story before I attended, I tried to anticipate the wide range of possible intentional stumbles and humorous moments that actors struggling to maneuver through a story might endure. The range of mistakes and blunders exceeded my expectations among numerous welcome and delightful surprises. A play that delves in the world of funny gaffes takes real work on the part of the writers and the actors. To anyone sick of the political headlines, the conspiracy theories, the name calling, the accusations and counter accusations, this play is a welcome comedic retreat. It’s no wonder it won Best New Comedy at the 2015 Laurence Olivier Awards in London and is now on Broadway.

Who Will Be No. 1? A Salute to Local Businesses

L

ook for something special in the newspaper and online next week. Earlier in the year, some of you may have noted we ran a contest asking you to write in your favorite business or service on the North Shore by category. We wanted to know your favorite bank, your favorite bakery, favorite hotel, hair salon, nail salon, restaurant, accountant, lawyer and so forth. The entry form, which filled a whole Between page, could only be found in the newsyou and me paper, although we BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF publicized the contest on the web and on our social media platforms as well. But you had to pick up the newspaper in order to vote

for your favorites, and we of course did that on purpose to get you to read the paper, which is today an endangered species. Well, the contest was a big success. We received over 2,500 submissions and we have winners in more than 100 categories, including those that are in ties. We tabulated the answers on our computers and were fascinated by the results. The winners and/or nominators come from as far west as Cold Spring Harbor and Huntington and as far east as Wading River, as well as from Northport, East Northport, Kings Park, Smithtown, St. James, Three Village, Port Jefferson and Port Jefferson Station, Middle Country, Mount Sinai, Miller Place, Rocky Point and Shoreham—our entire North Shore areas of news coverage and distribution. Readers took the time and made the effort to salute their business contacts in this way. We think our readers will benefit from this information, a kind of recommended list of some of the best businesses in Suffolk County, as they do their shopping and meet their needs around town. The “Readers’ Choice” will be

named in their categories in a pullout section next Thursday, in time for holiday shopping. And we know the various winners are proud to have been singled out in this way. It’s pretty special to be No. 1 in customers esteem. It means the businesses, services and professionals have some sort of differential advantage over their competitors, and it gives the winners bragging rights and the spotlight to talk about their newest products even as they thank their customers. We, of course, thank the winners who have chosen additionally to advertise all that information in our supplement — although no ad was required of them — and that is part of the reason for the several weeks of space we devoted to the contest. In so doing, we are following the traditional business model that has always supported news media: Advertisers underwriting news for the readers, even as some of that news is about their products and services. In addition to being named in the supplement, the winners will be invited to a dinner reception at the Three Village Inn in Stony Brook on Wednesday evening, Feb. 5, 2020,

from 6-8 p.m. There will be valet parking, a great help in the event of inclement weather. At the historic inn, they will walk up to the podium on a red carpet, be asked to speak for one minute about their business or profession if they wish, and videoed and photographed as they do so. The videos will then appear on our website and the photographs in our newspapers and social media after the reception. In addition, there will be a drawing for the three gift certificates of $150, $75 and $50 to be used in the winners stores or offices by those who sent in nominations. Tickets to the event may be ordered on our website (tbrnewsmedia.com) after the first of the year, by phone with a credit card (631-751-7744) or by mail (P.O. Box 707, Setauket, NY 11733). In addition to the winners and their guests, we will also invite the customers who nominated their first choices and the general public in what we hope will be a wonderful show of support for local businesses. They are at the core of our communities and today, as we know, they too are an endangered species.
