Your Community’s Family Funeral Home Branch Funeral home of Miller Place

Miller Place parents, above, at a meeting last week regarding new armed guards in the district, are divided on not only the guns but on allowing students to participate in the national walkout.

School districts respond to allowing national walkout BY KEVIN REDDING KEVIN@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM In the aftermath of the most recent mass shooting, students across the nation are planning to rise up and walk out — a movement that is being handled very differently across local school districts. On March 14, exactly one month after gun violence at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, left 17 students and faculty members dead, students plan to walk out of their schools for 17 minutes starting at 10 a.m. — both in honor of the Parkland victims and as a call for legislative action to help put an end to deadly shootings. The nationwide protest, the seeds of which have spread across social media with the hashtag #ENOUGH, was launched by the activist group Women’s March Youth EMPOWER, whose members are demanding Congress do more than “tweet thoughts and prayers in response to gun violence” and that “students and staff have the right to teach in an environment free from the worry of being gunned down in their classrooms,” according to the group’s website.

The movement was initiated by Parkland survivors, whose outcry against guns following the shooting has reverberated throughout each and every state. An impassioned speech given by senior Emma González Feb. 17 went viral by stating that she and her fellow classmates would change the law in the country so that her high school would be the location of America’s last mass shooting. Across the North Shore, school districts have begun addressing how they will handle the localized version of the movement, with Miller Place and Rocky Point firmly opposed to letting their students leave the building — echoing widely shared concerns over safety. Mount Sinai is on board with letting students participate in the national movement, while Shoreham-Wading River is still weighing the situation.

Miller Place parents concerned about armed guards KEVIN REDDING

BY KEVIN REDDING KEVIN@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

On Monday, Feb. 26, one armed guard stood outside each of the four schools in the Miller Place school district, sparking controversy within the district. The decision to station retired NYPD officers armed with pistols outside Laddie A. Decker Sound Beach School, Andrew Muller Primary School, North Country Road Middle School and Miller Place High School was made the preceding Sunday evening, and an email about the decision was sent out around 9 p.m. stating temporary “increased security measures” would be in place. Some residents praised the district for taking quick, drastic action in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, shooting that left 17 students and faculty members dead Feb. 14. Others raised concerns that the school’s decision was unnecessary and dangerous, sharing their feelings at a board of Miller Place school district parents and students gathered inside the high school library Feb. 28, above, to voice concerns and support education meeting Feb. 28. “Adding armed guards to our schools for allowing armed guards outside schools in the district.

LONG ISLAND ALEX PETROSKI

Local politicians like U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin, below left, and state Assemblyman Steve Englebright, below right, deliver a clear message in opposition to the federal government’s plan to increase offshore drilling off the coast of Long Island.

Skewering federal government’s offshore drilling plan BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM If it wasn’t clear following six hours of Valentine’s Day testimony, the usual suspects were at it once again delivering a unified message against the possibility of offshore drilling in the Atlantic Ocean. Representatives from the U.S. Department of the Interior were at Brookhaven Town Hall March 2 to hear public comments from lawmakers across the political spectrum demand the proposed federal plan to expand natural gas and oil drilling along coastal waters be scrapped. The Feb. 14 hearing, which did not feature participation by the Interior, was held in the Suffolk County Legislature building in Hauppauge, an alternative to the federal bureau’s original plan for a single public hearing in Albany that took place the next day. Long Island lawmakers vehemently pushed back on the single upstate hearing, demanding at least one downstate hearing due to the impact such a plan might have locally. Though the Interior Department didn’t hear the first batch of testimony on Long Island in February, Assemblyman and Committee on Environmental Conservation Chairman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket) said a transcript of the entire meeting would be submitted as written public comment on the proposal. Neither of the two local

Notable quotes from March 2 meeting at Brookhaven Town Hall Adrienne Esposito, executive director of Citizens Campaign for the Environment: “Here on Long Island, we are a maritime community. We grow up with one foot in the water, one foot on the land — a fishing pole in one hand and a crab trap in the other. That’s who we are. You might think we love living on Long Island because we love the taxes or we just love traffic, but that’s not it. We love living by the water. It’s what makes us live here.” hearings featured a single speaker in favor of proceeding with offshore drilling off the coast of Long Island. First District U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (RShirley) played a vital role in securing the March 2 hearing in his home district, calling the initial one-Albany-hearing plan “unacceptable.” Zeldin and others reiterated the fact that there currently is no evidence to suggest the resources that would be drilled for exist off the coast of Long Island, in addition to the hazardous impact the plan would have on marine life. The congressman stopped short of joining lawmakers to his political left in calling for investment in renewable sources of energy as opposed to more drilling for oil and gas, though he has voted for such legislation in the past. “Drilling in the ocean for gas or oil is foolhardy,” Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine (R) said during his remarks. “We should be looking at alternative energy. This is not a Republican or Democrat issue — it’s a common sense issue.” In a Jan. 4 announcement, Ryan Zinke, Secretary of the Interior, said developing resources on the Outer Continental Shelf would provide billions of dollars to fund conservation of coastlines, public land and parks. “The important thing is we strike the right balance to protect our coasts and

Carrie Meek Gallagher, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Region 1 director: “Seismic surveys necessary for oil and gas resource exploration include air gun blasts every 10 to 20 seconds, 24 hours per day for weeks to months at a time. The low frequency, high energy sound they produce is harmful to marine mammals, including numerous endangered whales that are present off our coast.” Assemblyman Steve Englebright: “New York has committed to meeting future energy goals though clean, renewable sources like wind and solar. The state is working to shape an energy portfolio that moves away from carbon pollution toward renewable resources that will help mitigate the impacts of climate change in coastal people while still powering America and achieving American energy dominance,” Zinke said in the statement. Kristen Jarnagin, Discover Long Island president and CEO, spoke of the affests of tourism on the Island. According to Jarnagin, it’s a $5.6 billion industry that supports more than 100,000 local jobs. “Tourism is much more than vacationers enjoying our pristine beaches,” she said. “More than 80 percent of our tourism industry is made up of small business — hotels,

communities from sea level rise to more extreme and frequent storms. The federal proposal is incompatible with that.” Christine Pellegrino (D), New York State Assembly 9th District, Environmental Conservation Committee: “Our communities were devastated by Hurricane Sandy, and five years later we’re still not whole. Natural disasters can greatly increase the chance of a spill. Are you willing to risk our island, because I am not. Environmental groups warn that just opening the door to oil drilling in pristine federal lands and waters could lead to more tragic spills like the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010 that dumped more than 4 million barrels of oil over an 87-day period before it was capped.” Kevin McCallister, founder and president Defend H2O: “It’s not a question of if [an oil spill will happen], but it’s a question of when and where. Unlike some from New York certainly concerned about Long Island, I submit that we’ve got to keep [offshore drilling] off the entire East Coast. I think this is obviously regression when we should be moving toward renewables. To really slip back in time in environmental intelligence is quite concerning.” restaurants, transportation companies, boutique owners, wineries, farmers and the endless indirect businesses that thrive on the success of our industry including banks, audio/visual companies, landscapers, lawyers, attorneys and much more … Overnight that could all change, and those revenues and jobs stripped from the economy if not protected.” Public comments on the proposal can be submitted on the department’s website through March 9 by visiting www.boem.gov/nationalprogram-comment/#submitcomments.

Gov. Cuomo tries to crack down on potent drug

Proposes to close fentanyl loophole in budget amendment BY KEVIN REDDING KEVIN@TBRNEWSPAPERS.COM

its abuse is increasingly fueling the misery of the opioid epidemic.” According to the Centers for Disease New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) took Control and Prevention, fentanyl is between a firm stand against the spread of fentanyl 50 and 100 times more potent than morphine earlier this month, proposing and even more so than heroin legislation to add 11 variations — the lethal dose of heroin of the highly addictive and is about 30 milligrams, while dangerous synthetic opioid the lethal dose of fentanyl drug to the state’s scheduled is 3 mg.

budget bills. We need to utilize every resource available to deter individuals who create and sell these deadly drugs.” Over at the county correctional facility, Sheriff Errol Toulon Jr. (D), who regularly visits school districts across Suffolk to speak with students about the dangers of opioid use, also approved of Cuomo’s actions. “I applaud [Cuomo] for proposing strong regulations on fentanyl analogs because it gives law enforcement another avenue to crack down on drug traffickers and dealers pushing these dangerous and lethal substances into our communities,” he said. Tracey Farrell, a Rocky Point resident and the president of nonprofits North Shore Drug Awareness and On Kevin’s Wings, knows firsthand the devastation these opioids cause. Her son, Kevin, died of an overdose in 2012 and her daughter Breanna is currently three years in recovery. Farrell said because there are so many different chemical makeups of fentanyl, “too often this ties the hands of our law enforcement” to enact stricter penalties. “My son was one of 83 who passed in Suffolk County in 2012 when fentanyl wasn’t really on the radar, but five years later, that number is over 500 with a very large percentage of those deaths being caused by fentanyl,” she said. “We must take any and all steps possible to get the sale of this drug to impose the maximum sentences and potentially save lives.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is adding variations of fentanyl to a controlled substance list to aid the ability to prosecute drug dealers. Sal Vetro, a pharmacist at Echo Pharmacy in Miller Place, said this would be a major step in the right direction toward saving lives. “I think Cuomo’s on the right track,” Vetro said. “We’re trying to fight this epidemic and the people who need fentanyl should have fentanyl, but if it’s being used illegally, sold illegally or causing damage illegally, those people should certainly be punished. We have to stop ignoring the problem, and this is a start.”

SCHOOL NEWS Miller Avenue School

Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School

Miller Avenue School kindergarten students took part in a program studying the atmosphere and the effects of weather using a unique approach. Professor Soda Pop, a teacher from Mad Science, an educational program that works to spark students’ curiosity, led classes in conducting hands-on experiments to understand how and why weather occurs.

In one example, students acted as meteorologists in Argentina, Australia and Russia while learning how the climate in those regions plays a part in predicting the weather. They also learned about thermochromic paper and how it changes color when the instrument reaches a particular temperature, along with other measurement tools used.

four buildings, she addressed the walkout. “We are looking to see how we’re going to manage it here to allow students to have a voice, but I can tell you right now — there is no way that I’m going to have students walk outside at 10 o’clock in the morning,” Cartisano said to applause in the room. “The reason is that if everybody knows that children are walking outside at 10 o’clock in the morning, then who are the obvious victims? And that may or may not happen in our nation — and I pray every night that it doesn’t — but what I can tell you is that’s not going to happen here.” She explained to residents that she and other administrators want students to have a voice, but in a way that doesn’t create a health and safety issue, or turn into “a political movement.” “Our students’ voices do have to be heard about ending school violence and returning schools to the safe havens that — Gordon Brosdal they once were,” the superintendent said. “We’re spending a tremendous amount of time talking about student demonstrations and how we can provide students with a voice against school violence while also recognizing those who have lost their lives.” She said students will be able to Mount Sinai School District will be allowing its students to participate in the national walkout March 14.

Clockwise from above, Middle School fifthgrade teacher Melissa Drewisis shoots the game-winning shot; special education teacher Mike Pappalardo delivers his team two points on a layup; Mount Sinai Elementary Principal Rob Catlin scores; and high school captain Matt Dyroff goes to the rim.

Middle school staff wins annual Battle of the Educators BY BILL LANDON Third time was also a charm for Mount Sinai Middle School’s faculty. Brandon Loomis, a 6-foot-7-inch physical education teacher and four-year starter in Mount Sinai School District’s faculty game, ignited he crowd with dunk after dunk to help lead his Black Team to a 73-72 win over Mount Sinai High School staff March. 2. “[I do it for] all of these kids here that cheer us on,” Loomis said. “We hype it up — they get so excited.” There was time for one last play after the Gray Team scored on a free-throw to break a 71-71 tie, and the middle school team made it count. Elementary school principal Rob Catlin brought the ball down the court and passed to fifth-grade teacher Melissa Drewisis at the baseline, who found nothing but net as the buzzer sounded to win the game, and with it, bragging rights for another year. High school team captain and floor general Matt Dyroff said the nor’easter howling outside made him think about postponing the Battle of the Educators, and was glad he didn’t. “We contemplated whether to call it off, but we said, ‘Let’s go with it,’” Dyroff said. “We crossed our fingers, and it worked out well — it’s a great crowd. The excitement that it brings to the kids … it’s always all about the kids.” The game is organized and sponsored by Mount Sinai Booster Club, and funds raised from ticket sales, concessions and the halftime shooting contest go toward six $1,000 athletic scholarships awarded in June. Booster club president Diane Tabile said if money is needed to fund other projects or events throughout the district, the club is more than happy to share the wealth. Tabile said she loves how the faculty

game is different from anything else her club partakes in throughout the year. “The kids come out and watch their favorite teacher, especially the younger kids, they idolize these teachers,” Tabile said. “I appreciate the faculty coming out giving up their own time so the kids can come and watch, it’s just a great night. If there’s a program maybe they’re lacking funds for, or if a student may need a little help financially, we’re always willing to help out and we’re lucky that we can.” Tabile’s daughter Alexa, a senior varsity cheerleader who worked the souvenir and snack stand, said the event gave her and her classmates a unique perspective of their teachers. “It’s fun to see the teachers,” she said. “You always see them on such a composed level, but to see them differently — letting their hair down — is fun.”

Coming in hot

SWR’s Louser wins 100 breaststroke, 200 individual medley BY BILL LANDON Junior Jason Louser has a reason to love his home pool a little more these days. The Shoreham-Wading River swimmer took home two first-place finishes in the state championships at Nassau County Aquatic Center in East Meadow March 3. Louser was one of three two-time individual state champions, earning co-most outstanding swimmer award honors and All-American nods in the 100-yard breaststroke and 200 individual medley. “He has so much potential, and what we’ve seen today is just the tip of the iceberg,” Louser’s coach Kate Canard said. “He’s very humble and he’s very kind, so that speaks volumes. When he wins, he’s a nice person.” Louser touched the wall in the 100 breaststroke in 55.07 seconds, just ahead of Hauppauge’s Jack Casey, who finished in 55.19. Ward Melville’s David He, Louser’s top challenger throughout the weekend, came in third in 56.59.

Trailing the majority of the 200 individual medley, Louser made a strong push in the final 25 yards to stop the clock in a personal best 1:48.20 to finish just shy of breaking Justin Plaschka of Hauppauge’s 2014 record (1:47.83). Ward Melville’s David He was second in 1:51.13. “I wasn’t expecting to set a state record, but I knew that to win that event I had to go out faster, because [Ward Melville’s David] He is a better backstroker than I am,” Louser said. “I’m a breaststroker, and that definitely helps, but I could feel [He] on my feet.” He redeemed his second and third-place finishes by racing in the first-place 200 medley relay with Ryan Kaplan, Luka Zuric and Cameron Kubik.

‘He has so much potential, and what we’ve seen today is just the tip of the iceberg.’

Hauppauge’s Trenton Burr made it to third in the 100 backstroke (50.49) and Zuric placed sixth (51.55). The Northport 200 freestyle relay team of Zachary Papsco, Nicholas Millkey, Ethan Greenfield and Dylan Karpf claimed sixth place in 1:27.33. Louser has his sights set a little higher for his senior season, especially in the individual medley, being he was so close to breaking the state record. “I have another year to go for that,” he said, laughing. The junior is one of three Top 5 returnees in his two events combined. His head coach is looking forward to seeing what her swimmer can do next. “He’s so dedicated to the sport, and so are his parents — he comes here to East Meadow every day for practice,” Canard said. “I think he’s going to surprise a lot of people.”

Interview Mistakes to Avoid

ew career paths and opportunities for advancement begin with the same step: the interview. Successful interviews are achieved with a mixture of confidence, preparation and proper grooming, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve most likely read many tips and given tips on great interview skills. lessons and skills from that experience. Tap into them and demonstrate how each experience has helped you grow. It also is important to know your own story. Pay attention to what you are saying so you can avoid inadvertently contradicting yourself later. If there are gaps in your experience, be prepared to talk about them. REVEALING INSECURITIES Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about how nervous you are or how intimidated you might be by programming or software you will have to use. Revealing your insecurities makes you look unsure. Saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;likeâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;umâ&#x20AC;? too much also makes you seem unsure of yourself. You want to exude confidence in yourself, your skills and your ability to do the job. HAVING ZERO QUESTIONS You should ask at least one question of your interviewer. Even if you prepare a few questions, there is the chance that those will be answered through the pro-

Š99533

Most of these tips, however, list all the things you should do and focus more on preparing for your interview. What about what you should avoid doing during an interview? SHOWING UP LATE This one should be obvious, but the larger point is that no one plans to show up late to an interview. Things happen. There is traffic. There is unforeseen weather. There are canceled babysitters and medical emergencies. Be sure to build in a buffer. Plan to leave for your interview much earlier than you need to. If nothing stalls your progress, you can always kill time in the area in local shops or find a coffee shop where you can review your notes or read up on the company a little more. SELLING YOURSELF SHORT Be confident in your skills and experience. For example, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be embarrassed of a position you held that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end as planned. You still learned valuable

cess of the interview. If this happens, be ready to think on your feet. Odds are there was some point of the interview you can build off of to

ask an intelligent question. For example, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do you feel leadership is fostered within the company?â&#x20AC;? 2018 Greenshoot Media

OPINION Editorial

Letters to the editor WOMEN’S MARCH YOUTH EMPOWER FACEBOOK

The Women’s March Youth EMPOWER is encouraging students and more to participate in a March 14 walkout.

Students deserve to be heard

There is no denying the Florida school shooting has reignited a national discussion on appropriate firearm regulations and mental health issues. Amid the uproar, students are organizing in attempt to make their voices heard — and we firmly believe they deserve to be at the forefront of this conversation. The Women’s March Youth EMPOWER has put out the call for students, teachers, school administrators and parents to participate in a national school walkout Wednesday, March 14, at 10 a.m. The event calls for students to walk outside of their school building for 17 minutes, one minute for each of victims killed in Parkland, in a unified effort to show students demand action from Congress in passing federal gun regulations. Commack resident Paul Guttenberg, whose niece Jaime was killed in the Parkland shooting, voiced support for the student walkout. “It keeps the issue of how high school students feel about gun violence in the news, and will also send the message that our children’s voices do count,” he said. “And the tone-deaf GOP politicians in Congress will be forced to listen to how they feel.” The reaction of Long Island’s school districts to the walkout wildly varies and, in some cases, is disappointing. We applaud Ward Melville High School Principal Alan Baum for sitting down with student organizers in his district to discuss plans and ensure safety. If the point of education is to prepare our children for life, and to become civic-minded adults, Baum’s action should serve as an example for other districts. Brenden Cusack, principal at Huntington High School, has used the walkout as an opportunity to arrange a March 13 forum where students, teachers and the community can engage in respectful dialogue on mass shootings. It is disappointing that other districts like Rocky Point have issued warnings that administrative action will be taken in response to any student participating in the walkout. The event is an effort to cry out for attention, where the district’s planned moment of silence is just that, silence, and a letter-writing campaign is too easily ignored. This decision by school administrators strangles students’ voices, making someone think twice before expressing an opinion. Worse are those school officials who have decided to bury their heads in the sand and not publicly address the walkout. Elwood and Harborfields have not yet issued public statements regarding how their districts will handle the event. This leaves both students and parents with numerous unanswered questions. With a little less than a week until walkout day, we strongly encourage school officials to reconsider an open and honest dialogue. The first step to solving a problem starts with discussion of the issues.

Superintendents appeal for leadership The murder of 17 students and teachers in the corridors of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, by a gunman armed with an AR-15 assault rifle is one more episode in a series of violent acts targeting our nation’s youth. Now, Parkland joins Columbine, Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech and dozens of other educational settings as the name of a crime scene, not a school. Our heartbreak increases as the list gets longer and longer. The Parkland tragedy reminds us an American school shooting has taken place, on average, once per week in 2018, and that is only through February. Addressing this national epidemic demands bold action. Our national response must evolve to be more than just messages of “thoughts and prayers” and hand-wringing about our inability to stop this. The students in Florida want this to be the tipping point; they want this to be the “last mass shooting.” This siren must get our attention. And this issue should be the one to galvanize our elected officials in Washington, D.C., state capitals and local communities. By rejecting mass shootings as a “new normal,” the federal government has the chance to seize the grief and the anger of this overwhelming moment and act now. The nation is ready. New York State passed sensible guns laws in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre in neighboring Connecticut. This bipartisan measure includes many provisions that our national leaders can use

as a model. Assault weapons, background checks, ammunition sales, mental health screenings and more, it’s all in there. It wasn’t perfect when it was passed, but through a series of amendments, it’s been improved. We’re certain that critics can identify several concerns about the law, but there are none that can’t be resolved. Take New York State’s SAFE Act and use it as a template for federal action. The aftermath of a school shooting has become all too predictable. We need a multifaceted solution that addresses all of the issues that the Parkland students are now so eloquently articulating as a result of witnessing the horrific shooting and losing classmates and teachers to gun violence. It is the only way to make significant progress toward addressing this complex matter. We have a state law in place that can be used to initiate the essential national conversation, the SAFE Act, so why not use it? We understand that what we’ve done in New York may be a hard sell elsewhere, but all kids deserve this kind of protection. We do know that nothing will improve if we do nothing, and that is not an option. We need such changes to be able to assure students, parents and staff that our schools are safe places. Ensuring that our students receive the highestquality programs and services in a safe, secure environment is the goal of the Suffolk County School Superintendents Association. It is a goal that is becoming increasingly difficult to achieve. A recent

survey of school superintendents statewide indicates that more than half of respondents have rising concerns about the needs of our students in nonacademic areas, including health, safety and mental health. Our members partner with county, town and village police departments, as well as many other non-lawenforcement organizations, understanding that these needs cannot be met without robust cooperation. Only this type of cooperation will enable us to fully address these problems. To make progress, we need strong national leadership. We need our leaders to break the patterns that have resulted in inaction time and time again. We need them to be brave and do what we have elected them to do — lead. We must demand decency and collaboration by all involved. With civility, the availability of adequate resources and exhaustive planning, we can be successful. This work demands collaboration, compromise, discussion and mutual understanding. To this end, the superintendents association stands ready to help in this effort in any way necessary. As Americans, we must be capable of more than one thought and one nonnegotiable action plan to address this problem. In doing so, we can meet today’s challenges and achieve our goal of providing a safe, secure environment for all students. Our humanity demands it.

Gary Bixhorn and Lars Clemensen Suffolk County School Superintendents Association

Preparing for retirement More than half of New Yorkers who work in the private sector have no way to save for retirement at work — including 55.9 percent right here in the 4th Assembly District. I want to thank my representative, Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket), for co-sponsoring a bill to help change that. The Secure Choice Retirement Savings Act would establish a state-facilitated retirement savings program that would

be voluntary for employers but would allow companies to offer their employees a savings option if they don’t already. It’s voluntary for employees, too, and requires no contributions from the company or the state. AARP supports this idea because it’s a win-win-win: employers could offer a valuable benefit; employees are 15 times likelier to save if they can do so on the job; and taxpayers would have less need to fund services

for people who lack sufficient retirement savings. Now Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has proposed Secure Choice as part of his state budget. With more than half of all state legislators — in both houses and from both major political parties — sponsoring Secure Choice and with the governor’s budget proposal, it is time to help workers start saving for their future.

OPINION

A face at war with itself

I

f parts of the body could talk, I wonder what they’d say. To that end, I imagined the following dialogue among mostly facial features. Teeth: Hey, look at me. Something’s changed. You’re going to like it. Ears: What? You’re talking again? Seriously. Can’t you give it a rest, just for a few moments? Here’s a news flash: You don’t have to eat crunchy food all the time. How about eating something soft once in a while? Teeth: Crunchy food tastes good. Tongue: Yes, but the ears have By Daniel Dunaief a point. That crunchy stuff scratches me. Eyes: Keep it down. I’m surfing the net and you’re distracting me. Nose: Oh, how wonderful. You get to look for stuff all day long, while I’m sitting here waiting for Eileen to share

D. None of the above

perfume that smells like flowers. Ears: So, you like Eileen? Nose: No, but she smells a lot better than we do. Our armpits leave something to be desired at the end of the day. It’s amazing we’re still married. Armpit: You wouldn’t smell so great either if you got damp every time the stress level started to rise. Besides, with all that running, nose, I’d think you’d be in better shape. Nose: Is that supposed to be funny? Armpit: I’m sorry. I know it’s not your fault. Maybe my stress would be lower if the eyes didn’t spend so much time reading about politics. Teeth: Wait, guys. Come on, I want to tell you something. You’re going to like it. Ears: Oh, please. Are you going to tell us that you have a few more thoughts you’d like to share about a way to smile so we look better in selfies? Forget it. Haven’t you heard? Your daughter said you’re incapable of taking a good selfie. She’s probably right. Selfie’s were made for people much younger than we are. They’re a tool to even out the generational power struggle.

Cheeks: We’re as young as we feel, right? Eyes: Have you looked in the mirror lately? Cheeks, you’re showing our age. Cheeks: Wait, what’s wrong with me? Eyes: Nothing’s wrong. It’s just that gravity seems to have caught up with you. Chin: Gravity, that’s funny. Eyes: You haven’t looked in the mirror either, have you chin? Chin: Why? Eyes: Are you trying to clone yourself? Nose: Ignore them, cheeks and chin. They’re just jealous. Eyes: Jealous? What? Let’s just say that the new hairs coming out of you, my little nose friend, aren’t winning admirers. Nose: Hairs? Where? Ears: Can we keep it down? I’m trying to enjoy the few moments of silence before the phone rings or someone else has to share thoughts about a better way to do something. Eyes: We noticed the extra hairs growing on you, too, ears. Ears: You’re in a bad mood today,

eyes. What’s wrong? Eyes: Nothing. Teeth: No, you can tell us. Eyes: I need to wear close glasses for the computer and distance glasses for driving. I hate having two pairs and it takes me a minute to adjust. Nose: Tell me about it. The computer glasses are pinching me. Ears: Yeah, and they’re irritating me, too. Teeth: Come on. I have something to say. Ears; Of course you do. That’s all you do. Blah, blah, blah. Would it hurt you to listen? Teeth: I am part of the mouth, you know. That’s what I do. Ears: Yes, but silence can be good for all of us, you know? Eyes: OK, tell us this important news that you’re so eager to share. Teeth: After all these years, my teeth are straight. See? My smile isn’t crooked anymore. Eyes: Let me see. Teeth: Aah. Eyes: Hmm, they are straighter. What do you know? Now, what can you do about your breath?

also occurred to us that no one has had to get up early to walk the dog on the weekends. We haven’t had to go out in the wind and rain, or the cold and dark for that last walk of the night. There were no elaborate plans that needed to be made for dog care when we left for vacation or a weekend away from home. We didn’t need to dash to the vet for an emerging “hot spot” or note the time on the calendar for a rabies shot. There has not been any sudden despoiling on the most treasured rug in the house. And we have not had to deal with the frantic teething that puts clothing and window sills at risk as a new puppy settles in. We have thought briefly of different possibilities. We have a friend who has a golden retriever puppy named Chewy with almost identical coloring and inquisitiveness as Teddy, and we have offered our services as sometime babysitters. So far we have done so once. After loving up the pup, the rest was just work and it wasn’t the same. Substitute dogs are like substitute

teachers: Happy to have them come and happy to see them go. It has been 45 years since I have been without a dog in the house, and there is a void that won’t go away. One of my sons and daughters-in-law are thinking of getting a dog. If so, they would come often to visit and bring the dog. Would that replace what is missing? I have my doubts. That would just mean more work without the primary connection. So profound is that connection that the latest trend in employee benefits for large corporations is “pawternity leave.” That means a couple of days paid time off for an employee to bond with a new four-legged family member or to mourn the death of a beloved pet. Some companies are even encouraging their staffers to bring their pets with them to the office when at work. So, will we get another dog? There have been four dogs sequentially in my life already, and there is certainly room for more. I just don’t know if l can bear the loss of yet another. As my mother used to say, “We’ll see.”

Will we get yet another dog?

P

eople sometimes ask me if I am going to get another dog. Even people I don’t really know have stopped me in the supermarket or the post office to ask. They know about my dog, Teddy, since I have written about him, described his antics and, at the end, the pain of losing him. Those who ask probably have pets of their own, and they understand the deep relationship we humans have with our By Leah S. Dunaief animals. They also know what is coming for them because beloved pets die. We are lucky if they keep us company on our journey through life for a decade and a half. And we mourn them as we would mourn the death of any beloved family member.

Between you and me

Initially we wouldn’t consider replacing him. Every night, when we arrived home and opened the front door there was no four-legged furry bundle fishtailing with joy to welcome us. The house was just dark and empty. We needed time to grieve. “Just get another dog,” said those who didn’t understand that dogs are not like widgets, one replaceable with another. So we went through the spring and didn’t see him sniffing at the crocuses and daffodils as if in wonder at how they had gotten there. After all, they hadn’t been there yesterday. In summer, he wasn’t here to dash across the sand and fling himself into the water for an instant cool-down. As the fall came and the beach grass turned russet and gold, he did not run happily along the beach with us, perfectly camouflaged by nature’s backdrop. And this winter, with the first snow, he was not here to roll ecstatically on his back and make snow angels on the front lawn. It’s coming up on a year now since we have been without a dog. It has
