F R E E OOOOOH! AAAHHH! & WOW!!!

New year, same parade:

In response to overwhelming feedback from the community, the Friends of St. Patrick have listened and the 67th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Sunday, March 12, will proceed along its traditional route and will end at the corner of Route 25A and Broadway, not Route 25A and Rocky Point Road. While the idea of shortening the parade had some good intentions, the public feedback was clear that such intentions are outweighed by the desire to keep the parade route the same. To support the parade efforts, attend a cocktail party fundraiser at East Wind Caterers on March 5 from 4 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $40 and include traditional Irish food, dancing and music. Tickets will not be available at the door. To purchase tickets, see a member of the Friends of St. Patrick or go to McCarrick’s Dairy in Rocky Point, The Hartlin Inn in Sound Beach or the Law Office of James E. McElhone in Miller Place.

Bring your fine jewelry in right now, and we'll polish, buff, and shine it up in a jiffy. All for the best price in the world: FREE. (And we'll be listening for your "Ooooh", Aaaaahhh," and "Wow!!!")

‘Red Light Robin Hood’ avoids prison time with plea By Kevin Redding kevin@tbrnewspapers.com The merry adventures of Suffolk County’s “Red Light Robin Hood” continued last week as the Centereach resident who took matters into his own hands by tampering with red light cameras across county intersections struck a plea deal with prosecutors. The agreement reached will place him on interim probation for one year in lieu of any prison time. Stephen Ruth Jr., who has been crusading against the county’s red light camera program since 2015 in an effort to “take the power back” by exposing what he considers government corruption and helping save Suffolk residents’ lives — for which he’s been called a domestic hero on social media — pleaded guilty in Riverhead Feb. 8 to a felony charge of criminal mischief. Since the county first installed red light cameras at busy intersections in 2010, which snap flashing photos of cars that run a red light or don’t come to a complete stop before turning right on red, they’ve been widely opposed across the county. Ruth, who’s become the boastful face of the opposition — as evidenced by his smiley mug shot after first tampering with the devices in 2015 —has consistently called for the program’s repeal before the Suffolk County Legislature. He said the cameras and shortened yellow lights, “shortened to cause red

light running for a profit,” are responsible for fatalities and accidents on the roads, have been illegally constructed without an engineer signing off on them, and are nothing more than a Suffolk County “money grab.” “I was willing to go to jail from the beginning because I’m sticking up on behalf of those people who don’t have a voice anymore,” Ruth said. “These cameras are completely illegal and the [county] is not allowed to collect any money off them whatsoever ... I knew this was going on and made my own news.” Under the plea deal Lake Grove attorney, David Raimondo, said if Ruth successfully completes his probation, the felony plea will be dropped to a misdemeanor. The 44-year-old real estate salesman may also have to pay up to $85,000 in restitution for all the cameras and equipment he’d left inoperable — a charge that will be challenged during a restitution hearing in April. Raimondo said he and his client will fight because “we believe that the entire red light camera system program is illegal and every single ticket issued from day one is a nullity.” In the wake of the court ruling, Raimondo acknowledged that it was a good plea. “This is something the county has to atone for and will atone for in civil litigation ... it is not Stephen’s or his family’s cross to bear,” Raimondo said. “Why should Stephen sacrifice his personal freedom for what I think is nothing more than enterprise corruption?” As Ruth has always worn his criminal tampering and obstruction of governmental administration as a badge of honor — even proudly demonstrating on his YouTube channel how he uses a painter’s extension rod to reach high-positioned red light cameras to turn its lens away from the road — Raimondo applauded his client for always taking responsibility for what he’s done. “While I absolutely don’t condone or approve of any form of violence or destruction of property, I admire Stephen’s willingness to

James Emanuel, a retired Suffolk County police officer, has dedicated himself to researching and testifying against the program, and is one of Ruth’s avid supporters.

“I’ve spoken to a lot of police officers who privately are a big fan of what he did,” Emanuel said. “You get to the point where you have to push back against the system — you just don’t have a choice. The guy saw a danger and his attitude was, ‘I’m gonna push back.’ He turned himself in every single time and he didn’t have to do that.” Suffolk County Legislator Leslie Kennedy (R-Nesconset) acknowledges that red light cameras, although useful in some intersections, are overused and costly. “I think what Ruth thought he was doing was making a statement, and he clearly did make a statement,” she said. “But you have to stay within the parameters of the law to make a statement that’s not going to get you in big trouble.”

Committee formed to create drag strip in Suffolk By Kevin Redding kevin@tbrnewspapers.com Suffolk County is putting the pedal to the metal in an effort to build a drag strip for its need-for-speed residents. A large crowd of more than 100 drag racing enthusiasts filled the auditorium at the Suffolk County Legislature Feb. 7 and cheered on as Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory (DAmityville) announced the formation of an ad hoc committee, consisting of a bipartisan group of legislators, representatives from the county’s Department of Planning and the County Supervisors’ Association, also members from the racing community, to start the process of bringing a family oriented motorsports park to the county. “Long Island has thousands of families who are passionate about racing as a sport, and providing a legal outlet for drag racing could bring tremendous benefits to Suffolk County,” Gregory said at the press conference. The ad hoc committee was suggested by Legislator Tom Cilmi (R-Bay Shore) after representatives from the “Long Island Needs a Dragstrip” advocacy group charged into the Legislature’s auditorium in December to protest a resolution on the agenda. The legislators had been considering

Suffolk County Legislature Presiding Officer duWayne gregory discusses Long islanders’ desire for a drag strip in the county. a bill for a master plan in Yaphank, but the racing community argued against accepting the master plan, claiming that the property would be better used as a drag strip. The group had been looking at some areas included in the master plan for a potential site to build on. Even though

the Yaphank property wound up not being anywhere near large enough for what they were proposing, the passionate group had the legislators’ interest. “I was really inspired by the passion of all those that came to the Legislature and we’re going to do all we can to try and make

it a reality,” Cilmi said in a phone interview. In terms of the crowd at both gatherings, Cilmi said, “it’s worth pointing out that in the room were young children, lots of women and lots of guys ... it was a large group of very enthusiastic people and it’s

Sound Beach homeowners arrested following party Suffolk County Police arrested two adults for hosting a party at their Sound Beach residence Feb. 11 after a teenager needed medical attention. Seventh Precinct patrol officers responded to a call from a parking lot across from 271 Echo Ave., at approximately 10:55 p.m., after a teenage girl became ill from alcohol consumption. The girl was coming from a party. When police arrived, there were more than 100 underage teenagers spilling out into the street. Alcohol was at the party. The girl was transported to a local hospital for treatment. Police arrested and charged the hosts, Charles Suomi, 40, and Farnelle Marseille, 35, with violating the Social Host Law. Both were issued field appearance tickets and released. They are scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on April 12.

Pinkenburg’s perfect score Rocky Point junior Jade Pinkenburg has accomplished something less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the exam have — a perfect score on the ACT. Pinkenburg earned the top mark of 36 on the December ACT exam, demonstrating his high level of knowledge in the areas of English, mathematics, reading and science. This was the first time he had taken the exam, but not the first time he had earned high marks on the national level. Previously, he earned a 1570 (out of 1600) composite score on the SAT, earning perfect marks on the math portion. When asked what advice he would of-

fer students who are preparing for either exam, he encouraged his peers to have patience when taking the test. “Trust your instincts, have faith in yourselves and take your time with it,” he said. “Be sure to read all directions and sections carefully.” While he still has one more year of high school left, Pinkenburg, a member of the Rocky Point robotic team GearHeadz, is aspiring to go into the engineering field. At Rocky Point, Pinkenburg is also an active member of spring track and the guitar club. He also volunteers at the North Shore Youth Council.

Suffolk Drag Strip Continued from page A5 not every day that you fill an auditorium with people all interested in one issue.” The legislators on the committee — Gregory, Cilmi, Al Krupski (D-Cutchogue), and Rob Trotta (R-Fort Salonga) — will explore potential locations in Suffolk for the drag strip, which is projected to occupy between 100 and 200 acres, as well as the economic boom a full-fledged drag strip could bring to the struggling county. Gregory said the committee hopes the drag strip will deter the illegal and dangerous street racing that’s been known to take place in areas like Wyandanch. Another task is to make sure the local community and neighboring towns are behind the project and understand their quality of life will not be disrupted by it.

Wiederkehr makes commitment official: With his parents and district administrators standing beside him, Shoreham-Wading River

football star Ethan Wiederkehr recently signed a letter of intent with Northwestern University.

In dramatic fashion, the seventh-grade CYO girls’ basketball team out of Shoreham, St. Mark’s, rallied from a six-point halftime deficit to stun previously unbeaten St. William the Abbot, 36-31, to claim the Class C Long Island CYO basketball championship crown. The group finished its campaign with a 14-2 record, which included four playoff victories on the road. With standout power forward Mia Rosati on the disabled list for most of the season, the team played like champions despite having only seven players available to coaches Brian Sheehan and Frank Cutinella. Rosati returned to action in time for the playoffs and she did

not disappoint. Along with Mia, the girls that represented St. Mark’s were Alexa Levonick, Ashley Dellunuman, Kelly Reiss, Sophie Lavey, Emily Cook, Alexa Constant and Carlie Cutinella, who was named the MVP in the championship game. There was also excitement at the sixthgrade level. St. Mark’s younger squad also captured the Class C title, defeating St. William The Abbot 30-16. After losing the home opener by one point, St. Mark’s went on a 15-0 hot streak, which also included four straight playoff road wins. The girls turned heads with their toughness, dedication to defense and unselfish play.

In building the drag strip, the committee anticipates growth in the local racing-related industry, such as shops that paint the racing cars and work on engines, and job creation in those fields. There will also be food concessions within the arena, and spectators who could potentially come out and spend money at surrounding restaurants and hotels. Gregory said any large venue has the potential to attract thousands of people and effectively increase the county’s sales tax, which has been flat for the last few years: “Long Island is losing money in sales tax as residents and tourists flock to nearby states, including New Jersey, to use their drag racing strips.” He said estimates show that a drag strip could generate more than $100 million in revenue. He proposed that this would be “a safe and enjoyable attraction that people [will] want to come to.” Krupski, who grew up in Cutchogue and

remembers his grandfather taking him to the Riverhead Raceway when he was young, said the racing culture is still very much alive. “A lot of people are really interested in this and enjoy racing and working on cars and so to most people it’s more than a hobby, it’s more of a lifestyle,” he said in a phone interview. “I give DuWayne Gregory credit for putting this together. It’s a nice bipartisan group and everyone sees the value in it.” While still too early to confirm any serious location ideas, the committee and members of the advocacy group have areas like Enterprise Park in Riverhead on a list of potential development sites. One of the motorsport’s advocates has expressed interest in contributing a piece of their own property. “It’s going to be tough to find a spot to put this because a lot of people won’t want to hear it,” Trotta said in a phone interview. “It’s going to have to be somewhere far away from most people, but we’re going to try our utmost [best] to find a place.” Trotta, who has been consistently vocal about the county’s current economic state, said while he doesn’t necessarily believe the drag strip will be “a savior of Suffolk County,” there’s potential to bring in extra revenue. “There’s not a resort in Nassau or Suffolk, and Long Island is bigger than most cities,” Trotta said. “There’s an opportunity for us to make something and mix it with the drag strip. We need people from the city to come out here and spend money.” During the press conference, John Cozzali, a Mastic resident and founder of “Long

The group consisted of Annie Sheehan, Sophie Costello, Anna McGivney, Sara Louser, Kelsey Hughes, Colleen Ohrtman, Cadrieanna Trimmingham, Katie Coster, Maddie Bergen, Maddie McKieranan, Grace Ann Leonard and Ella Marcario. The girls are coached by Brian Sheehan and Ken Ohrtman. Photos from Brian Sheehan

Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta, above, said the proposed drag strip, brought on by the Long Island Needs a Dragstrip advocacy group on Facebook, left, has the potential to bring in needed revenue to the county. Island Needs a Drag Strip,” said he was happy to see the Legislature taking a serious look at his group’s long-dreamt of project. “We look forward to working on this initiative, which we believe will have a positive economic impact for Long Island and will create a safe place for the new generation to come and race,” Cozzali said. According to Gregory, the full economic analysis, conceptual planning of the racetrack and securing a location should take roughly nine months.

Clockwise from left, Shoreham-Wading River’s Maria Smith drives to the basket; Shoreham-Wading River’s Erin Triandafils leaps up to the rim; Mount Sinai’s Victoria Johnson shoots over Shorheam-Wading River’s Mackenzie Zajac; and Shoreham-Wading River’s Mikayla dwyer shoots.

Wildcats win share of League VI title By Bill landon Shoreham-Wading River was hungry for revenge, and junior Erin Triandafils used it to feed a six-point scoring streak off the bench in the fourth quarter, which led to a 44-33 Wildcats win over previously undefeated Mount Sinai.

Shoreham-WR 44 Mount Siani 33

“Mount Sinai is a good rival in every sport, and we finally beat them,” Triandafils said. “It was definitely very exciting. We were hoping to play great defense, get some baskets and just play our game.” Licking their wounds from their only League VI loss of the season, the Wildcats wanted to avenge the Jan. 17 defeat in front of their home crowd Feb. 11. Shoreham-Wading River head coach Adam Lievre said he suspected the last game of the regular season would be a key matchup between both teams and have it set the tone for the postseason. “Going into the year, we both would’ve figured that there was a good chance this was how it was going to go down,” Lievre said. “We knew who they lost due to graduation, but we brought everybody back, so we expected to be fighting for the top spot.” Mount Sinai was protecting a 17-0 season and 13-0 league record, but the Mustangs couldn’t overcome its rival as the lead began to slip away in the second half. Shoreham-Wading River’s defense had held Mount Sinai senior Victoria Johnson scoreless until she found the rim three times in the third quarter. Classmate Veronica Venezia scored from the paint, sophomore Holly McNair banked two points and so did sophomore Gabriella Sartori, as the Mustangs edged ahead 27-22 with just over four minutes left.

Shoreham-Wading River tied the game at 29-29, and senior Lindsey McKenna hit a buzzer-beater that gave her team the edge heading into the final eight minutes of play. Senior Maria Smith said her team had been practicing for weeks with the matchup against Mount Sinai in mind. “We just wanted revenge, and we finally got it,” Smith said. “I knew that we had momentum and we went into the huddle [and said] we have to keep this [lead]. We can’t lose it.” That’s when Triandafils scored three straight times. “Erin [Triandafils], she’s been groomed to play behind Maria [Smith], because they’re very similar in what they’re capable of doing,” Lievre said. “We took a chance and gave her a couple of minutes, and it worked out really well.” Junior Mikayla Dwyer led ShorehamWading River with 10 points, Smith scored eight and seniors Mackenzie Zajac and Sophie Triandafils, Erin’s older sister, each added seven points. Venezia was atop the scoreboard for Mount Sinai with eight points, Johnson was right behind with seven and McNair, Sartori and sophomore Brooke Cergol rounded out the scoring with six points each. With the loss, Mount Sinai shares the league title with Shoreham-Wading River. “At certain times of the season you’re

going to have adversity, and this is something we’ll be dealing with when it comes to the playoffs,” Mount Sinai head coach Michael Pappalardo said. “I thought this was a good game for us. I looked at this game as one with a playoff atmosphere. Adversity makes us better.”

OpiniOn Editorial

Letter to the editor Congressman Zeldin delivers a message to constituents

Photo by Victoria Espinoza

A couple gets married during Huntington’s marriage marathon.

Celebrating community love North Shore residents shared their love and affection for one another this Valentine’s Day, but in one town, love spread literally throughout every corner of Main Street. Huntington Town Clerk Jo-Ann Raia hosted the town’s annual marriage marathon, an event in which Raia performs marriage ceremonies for as many couples as she can throughout Feb. 14. Each couple is treated to a free, romantic ceremony and a small reception. The event is the epitome of “it takes a village” and is a beautiful example of a town coming together in the most supportive way. More than 30 local merchants donate cakes, cookies, decorations and flowers to help bring the marriage marathon to life. After each couple is married, they’re also given a variety of gift certificates and grab bags from businesses in the village, and a local photographer has donated his time for the past two decades to document each ceremony and send the couple their photos free of charge. Raia, at the helm, came up with the idea in 1995 and has not slowed down. She’s married more than a dozen couples in some years, and she and the rest of her office staff spend hours the day before transforming Huntington Town Hall into Cupid’s home away from home. Raia, who has saved a photo of herself with every bride and groom she has joined together in the past 22 years, brings joy and warmth to every ceremony she performs. This is a tradition of which the Town of Huntington and the many people who come together to help make Valentine couples’ special day as perfect as possible should be proud. As a local paper covering local news, it’s events like this that remind us how lucky we are to cover unique communities, where people genuinely care about their neighbors and want their lives to be as special as possible.

The 1st Congressional District of New York is certainly one of the very best congressional districts in America. While a new president and new Congress debate legislation and other policy with a national and international focus, there are also some local priorities that are very important to us all as well here on the east end of Long Island. In this first of a two-part op-ed, I will highlight some security, economic, veterans and law enforcement priorities impacting NY-1. A top priority must always be to secure our communities from threats posed by dangerous individuals, and illegal and abused narcotics. We have very real, ongoing homeland security threats within our own borders and we, as a community, must remain ever vigilant. Additionally, from a security perspective, curbing the drug epidemic in Suffolk County includes targeted enforcement to stop the flow of illegal narcotics into our country to keep drugs out of our communities and off of our streets. Much more can be done to keep our district safe, and we must ensure law enforcement personnel have every tool necessary to protect us. We must also address the serious risks posed to Long Island by the rising threat of cyber attacks. Many aspects of life have become computerized and without a substantial boost to cybersecurity capabilities, our local businesses, individuals and government infrastructure are left vulnerable. We must also continue to pursue solutions that help grow our middle class and improve the business climate within our district. The high cost of living on Long Island is one of the most commonly shared challenges we face. We must especially do everything possible to make Long Island more affordable for our seniors and young families. This can be assisted through tax relief and efforts to shut down job-killing red tape, such as the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act, which has recently passed the House. When businesses grow and stay local, they will create more good-paying, private sector jobs, expand the middle class and improve liquidity throughout our local economy. This includes supporting our local farmers. The agriculture industry is such an important part of our life and culture here on Long Island that

Lee Zeldin sets the record straight on issues facing the 1st Congressional District. has been negatively impacted by red tape, which is why I’ve supported legislation such as the Young Farmer Success Act. This bipartisan bill would add farmers to the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program, which would help our local family farms and the young farmers in our district where the next generation has to choose between taking over the family business or paying their student loans. I’ve also been outspoken about the need to repeal the death tax, which causes one-third of all family owned small businesses to liquidate after the death of the owner. It is also critical that we improve the management of our fisheries by making necessary reforms to our current fishing laws. We must reinvigorate Long Island’s tradition of saltwater fishing by clarifying federal regulations and reducing unneeded restrictions. Additionally, the local science community, including Brookhaven National Laboratory, Stony Brook University and other facilities, is an important economic factor and serves as one of the largest employers within our district. Efforts to secure funding to continue its great research also serves as a boost to our local economy. Fighting for our veterans and first responders is also a priority for our district. Suffolk County has the highest population of veterans by county in New York, as well as one of the highest in the entire country. These brave men and women deserve nothing but the highest quality of life and care. Veterans across New York

are now able to receive assistance coping with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury through the PFC Joseph P. Dwyer Veterans Peer Support Project, a peer-to-peer support program for veterans I established while serving in the state Senate. We must also do more to ensure every veteran has a roof over their head. No veteran should ever be left homeless. There are also various issues at the Veterans Administration facility in Northport that need to be addressed. Reforms at the VA from the national level to local level will help ensure no veteran is ever underserved. The VA must be held accountable to Congress, the media and American public, but most importantly, to our veterans. I will also be working closely with my colleagues to ensure 9/11 first responders, many of whom live in our district, receive timely and proper delivery of health care for illnesses caused as a result of their selfless efforts at Ground Zero in the weeks and months that followed the attacks. Our security, economy, veterans and law enforcement are some of the highest priorities to focus our local efforts on in 2017 and beyond. While there has been great past progress to write about, what is most important is to identify and tackle the many ways to do even more with each day and opportunity ahead.

OpiniOn The funny side of getting older

I

was watching television late at night, after my wife drifted off to sleep, when I first saw him. I don’t tend to stop channel surfing when a comedian appears. He looked like a friend of mine, he had a devilish smile and he wasn’t shouting or barking obscenities at me. He was balding and overweight and was the definition of unglamorous. He was talking as if I was in the room with him and he was sharing observations with me. I’m going to paraphrase one By Daniel Dunaief of the first jokes I heard. “Getting old sucks,” he began. “You know, when you’re in your 20s and you come in and tell the

D. None of the above

doctor your shoulder is bothering you, you have, like a hundred options. The doctor can take a piece of your hip and put it in your shoulder, he can make you a new shoulder, and he can fix you right up so you’re good as new.” The audience nodded appreciatively. “But, then, you get older and you go to the same doctor with the same complaint and you wait. The doctor smiles at you and listens to your symptoms but, then, he doesn’t offer any heroic solutions. He gives you that understanding look.” “So, what can we do about this?” you say. “Well, you can take some Advil if you want,” he says with a shrug. “But what about all those other options?” you ask. “What about moving around body parts, building a new shoulder and fixing me up so I’m better than I was?” “Those are no longer possible,” he says, as he shakes his head slowly. Getting old is difficult. I know doctors and lifestyle coaches and

entire industries are dedicated to reversing the effects of aging. Lines on your face? Hey, no problem, there’s a cure for that. Putting on weight as you age? Sure, we can fix you right up, send you food, cook food for you, or convince you through hypnosis that you, in fact, don’t need food. If a character Tom Hanks played in “Cast Away” could survive for several years on an island by himself with just a volleyball for his friend and a few fish and coconuts here and there, you can most certainly get through a day without coffee, doughnuts or any of the other bare necessities that call to you from the addicted parts of your bodies. When our kids were small, we used to pack the back of the car with everything we might need. Pack ‘N Play? Check. Stroller? Check. Diaper bag? Got it. As they got older, we didn’t have much to bring and just told them to get in the car and buckle themselves in.

Somewhere along the lines, though, as our kids needed less to go from point A to point B, we wanted more. Our conversations before we leave the house go something like this. “I can’t find my vitamins,” my wife says. “Did I take one this morning?” “I don’t know, but do you know where my reading glasses are?” I ask. “No, but when you start looking for your distance glasses, they’re on your forehead,” she smiles, pointing at me. “Oh, good, thanks. Have you seen my Invisalign braces?” I ask. “I’m not sure if the ones in the kitchen are your new ones or your old ones, but there’s a set on the counter,” she offers. As I scoop up my plastic braces, I see something familiar next to them. “Hey, honey?” I shout. “Your vitamins are on the kitchen table.” Getting old may be challenging but it can also be comical. Just ask comedian Louis C.K.

Women putting retirement on hold for jollies and more

T

he headline spoke to me: “More Women in Their 60s and 70s Are Having ‘Way Too Much Fun’ to Retire.” After reading the article, which didn’t disappoint, by Claire Cain Miller in last Sunday’s New York Times, even though I’ve been at odds lately with The Times, I think there is more to the story than fun. Two recent analyses indicate that “womBy Leah S. Dunaief en have become significantly more likely to work into their 60s and even 70s, often full time” and “many of these women report that they do it because they enjoy it,” according to the article. For those 65-69 years

Between you and me

of age,-the numbers have almost doubled since the late 1980s from 15 percent to nearly 30 percent. Perhaps more surprising is the leap in percentage terms for those 70-74 years of age, more than doubling from 8 to 18 percent. Who are these women? Those working are more likely to be higher educated and to have savings, studies have shown, while those not working more commonly are in poor health and have low savings, depending on Social Security and perhaps disability. But for their health problems, they too might be among those working. Why, if they don’t strictly need the money, are the women of “a certain age” still working? I can offer some of the answers from my own life. Working, full or part time, is more than just “fun,” although there is nothing wrong with enjoying one’s work. A job can offer a purpose to those who are now empty nesters or perhaps without spouses. There is satisfaction in having one’s

daily accomplishments measured in some way, whether with salary or by problems solved. Presumably holding a job offers something of value to community and society. There is also the social aspect of interacting with others and working as a team. Social ties are linked to longer life spans. In addition, working, unless at a job that is exactly the same each day and could be done by a robot, requires thinking and planning, which in turn helps exercise the brain. And the structure that reporting for work imposes in the course of a week might be welcomed by many. Sometimes working might be a way to preserve a marriage. In a household where the husband might have been the sole breadwinner but is now retired, the spouses might not be completely comfortable with that new arrangement. Work is a respected reason to be apart some of each day. There might also be a sort of prestige in still working. When people are retired, they may be

asked, “What did you do?” as if life has now passed them by. That’s opposed to “What kind of work do you do?” Having a job might convey greater importance. If the work one does is inherently engaging and one learns from it and meets interesting people, there might be the motivation to keep one’s hand in and stay abreast of new developments and changes in the field. And no matter how much savings one might reasonably have, drawing down dollars in retirement can be scary. The urge is to stay in place financially and not to drop down. Bringing a stream of income into one’s life can offset that fear. Finally, for many there is the absolute necessity to earn money in order to survive. They may wish to retire but feel they are unable to afford that luxury. Whatever the reasons, society benefits from the continuing efforts of experienced workers. It goes without saying that our newspapers treasure older workers alongside our young.
