EDUCATION Rocky Point students walk out against district orders “Books not bullets!” “We want change!” A group of nearly 30 students shouted these words from behind the front gates of Rocky Point High School between 10 a.m. and 10:17 a.m. March 14, demanding stricter gun legislation to help put an end to school violence one month after the Parkland, Florida, shooting left 17 students and faculty members dead. The Rocky Point high schoolers were among thousands across the country who took part in the school walkout demonstration during the time frame. The district issued a letter to parents last week that any student who chooses to participate in the movement via exiting the high school will be “subject to administrative action.” Requests for what the repercussions might be were not immediately returned.

Students waved signs that read “Our voices deserve to be heard,” “I will not be a statistic” and “School is for learning, not target practice” as passing cars honked in support. “We want legislators to take action against all assault weapons,” said senior Jade Pinkenburg, one of the organizers of the event. “We don’t want guns in our schools and want to feel safe within our schools. That’s what we’re doing this for.” Senior Bernard Sanchez said students should be allowed to have more of a voice. “You can’t sacrifice the First Amendment to try to protect the Second,” Sanchez said. “Court cases have proven time and time again that we don’t give away every choice

“I think it’s a very good thing,” his father said. “Obviously the adults don’t have any solutions, so I hope this will bring about great change. It’s time.”

In short time SWR students prove masters at debating

There’s no arguing that ShorehamWading River High School’s new, studentformed debate team is already a huge success. Just ask juniors Andrew Honold and Mahdi Rashidzada. The two students, along with freshman Jalal Sawas, won the majority of their debates during a qualifying competition at Jericho High School Feb. 10 to advance to the New York State Forensic League championship tournament at Hofstra University in April. Among the roughly 20 teams represented within the league, Shoreham-Wading River will be one of only three school districts from Suffolk County. “Going in, I was terrified — I didn’t know what to expect,” said Honold, who ended up in first place in the junior varsity division by winning all four of his debates at Jericho, each on the topic of plea bargaining. “That was actually my first debate, too. It was just kind of like throwing myself into cold water. It was really tense, but I could feel myself adapting better, and overall, it was really fun.” Rashidzada, who won three of four debates, said the club has been a great asset to him and his eight teammates. “It gives us kids an outlet to really understand the world around us,” said Rashidzada, whose prior experience in

SWR SCHOOL DISTRICT

Shoreham-Wading River High School’s new debate team sees three members qualify to compete in the state championship at Hofstra University this April. debate outside of the district has helped steer the team. “It allows us to express ourselves and our views, to research and to improve our speaking skills. It’s just been a great experience and I’m really excited to be going to states this year with my friends.” It was about a year ago, in March 2017, that two then-sophomores — club co-captains Declan Beran and Emma Kirkpatrick — proposed the idea of a debate team to the board of education. It was quickly and unanimously approved for the 2017-18 school year based on their presentation, where they out-

lined a plan for their first “pilot” year: They would assemble the team, hold weekly meetings with adviser and English teacher Brenna Gilroy, compete in practice debates and prepare for competition with other schools “by their senior year.” All but the last portion of their plan has been consistent, having gotten a head start on the competing part. “I’m very happy and grateful that we were given the opportunity to work hard and achieve the goal of creating this team,” said Beran, a lacrosse player and vice president of his class, who added he’s wanted to form

a debate club since his freshman year. “Just seeing members of our team compete is really special. It’s our first year and we’re going to states — it’s exciting. We encourage every grade level of our high school to get involved.” Beran said the club typically meets two days a week and members review different points for each side of a topic, practice counterarguments, and in the week leading up to a debate, face off against each other. Based on that practice run, other students will evaluate their presentation and suggest ways to improve it. The students said they learn analytical and public-speaking skills, hone their speech-writing abilities and have a chance to regularly practice teamwork and collaboration. In December, the team’s topic was on whether developing countries should provide developmental assistance to other developing countries. The teams get one to two months to fully research topics before debating. For the state competition, the students will research and discuss universal basic income, typically described as a new kind of welfare regime in which all citizens of a country receive a regular, livable and unconditional sum of money, from the government. “That was something I knew absolutely nothing about,” Honold said. “And I’m still learning, but it’s a really interesting topic. It’s great to know about and debate, because it’s something that’s probably going to affect us in the future.”

The board is buying the services of Retail Security Services Inc. based out of Medford. The guards will be paid $40 per hour. The board said a future meeting will show where the guards will be placed in the budget. Some parents in the meeting expressed that they wanted the guards to have military or prison guard backgrounds, but Brosdal said that when working as superintendent in William Floyd School District, which employs a number of security personnel, the most problems he had between security and the students were with those who used to work in Rikers penitentiary. “Picture a guy whose done 20 years or more in Rikers with high school kids,” he said, pausing. “Not a good mix.” Mount Sinai residents were split on whether they thought armed guards would truly protect the school’s children. “Regardless of what your stance is, I don’t think there would be enough people in the community to voice against it, because God forbid there is ever a school shooting, and the campus has no security in place,” Mount Sinai resident Chris Hart said. “These are

open grounds — this is a large facility.” Therese Blanton said she did not think the four armed guards would be enough to protect the campus. “I still don’t understand how letting one armed guard in each building will protect this entire campus, including our perimeter,” Blanton said. “There’s no hard structure around and you have soft targets when they are out playing on the playground. I think a lot of people who are in my position are intimidated by guns in schools.” Henry Dreyer said he too would prefer a full risk assessment done first, and that more parents would come to each and every meeting to help the district improve on a regular basis. “I don’t like it, it’s unfortunate that they took this — Joe Latini route,” he said of the board. “I would like if there were more mental health care in here. I have kids in the school — second grade and kindergarten — I attend the board of education meetings regularly, and there’s usually seven or eight of us here. Last week there were about 100 people here, and this time there’s more than 50. If they’d come down here every week, it would be better.”

‘Assessing our own risk [afterwards] sort of seems like auditing our own taxes and then telling the IRS we don’t mean to pay.’

The suspect then hopped over the counter and stole cash from the drawer and other items before he fled on foot southbound on Route 112.

SCPD: Alleged drunk driver pulled from burning vehicle after crash BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Suffolk County police arrested a man for allegedly driving while intoxicated following a crash during which officers had to rescue him from a burning vehicle in Mount Sinai March 9. Jose Nunez was driving a 1999 Honda CRV westbound on Route 25A at Hallock Avenue when he allegedly lost control of the vehicle, crossed over the median, went over a front lawn and into the 7-Eleven parking lot, located at 1 Route 25A, where the vehicle side-swiped a light pole and crashed into a parked tractor trailer at approximately 2 a.m., according to police. The Honda was stuck in full throttle, and the engine caught fire near the fuel cells of the tractor trailer. Sixth Precinct officers, Port Jefferson EMS members, Mount Sinai Fire Department and Terryville Fire Department responded and found the driver trapped and unconscious. Sgt. Richard Grice used a fire extinguisher

to put out the fire near the engine, while officers Jamie Treadwell and Brian Cann used another fire extinguisher to put out the fire near the rear of the vehicle, police said. Officer Chris Weiner, with assistance from fire department members, kept the driver’s airway open until rescuers, including officer Anthony Buonagurio, officer Fred Crasa and officer Thomas Wassmer, were able to use the Jaws of Life tool to cut the vehicle and pull Nunez to safety. Nunez, who regained consciousness during the rescue, was transported with serious injuries to Stony Brook University Hospital. There was one person in the tractor trailer who was not injured. Nunez, 25, of Port Jefferson Station, was arrested and charged with allegedly driving while intoxicated. Sixth Squad detectives are continuing the investigation. Anyone with information about the crash can call the 6th Squad at 631-854-8652. Attorney information for Nunez was not immediately available.

Michael Boreshesky, of 62 Superior St., was last seen boarding the Port Jefferson Ferry at 8 p.m. Feb. 27. SCPD’s initial Silver Alert indicated

Boreshesky was diabetic and potentially suicidal. Police said his death appeared to be noncriminal. His body was found on the beach on Hilltop Drive in Sound Beach. The Silver Alert is a program implemented in Suffolk County that allows local law enforcement to share information with media outlets about individuals, especially senior citizens, with special needs who have been reported missing.

School safety, gun legislation on separate political tracks The New York State Legislature is working to make schools safer in the aftermath of the Feb. 14 shooting at a Florida high school. But the Republican-held Senate and Democratic-majority Assembly are not yet on the same page in figuring out how to accomplish the goal. The Senate passed a package of bills March 6 Page A22 aimed at improving school safety through various security-related measures. After a package of gun legislation bills — which included measures to create a stronger background check process, ban bump stocks or accessories that increase a semi-automatic weapon’s rate of fire, establish extreme risk protection orders, and more — brought forward by Senate Democrats failed in late February, the Assembly also passed a package of bills March 6 designed to strengthen gun laws. Several of the bills in the Assembly package were the same as versions voted down in the Senate. It remains to be seen if either house will pass their counterparts respective packages. “I have every hope that we can walk and chew gum at the same time because these are not mutually exclusive directions, and they are very complementary,” Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket) said in an interview. The assemblyman said he hadn’t had a chance to fully study the package of bills passed in the Senate yet, but at first glance it included some initiatives he’d be comfortable supporting. “I would just appeal to my colleagues in the Senate to meet us halfway, and I would pledge to do the same for them. I think we all should keep our eye on what the objective is here, which is to save lives and ultimately there is no single measure that is going to be an omnibus solve.” The passed Senate package includes a bill authorizing districts to receive state funding to hire a school resource officer, defined in the bill to include retired or active duty police officers, deputy sheriffs or state troopers. They would be permitted to carry firearms on school grounds if licensed to do so. Another bill increased the earnings limitations for retired police officers being employed by schools from $30,000 annually to $50,000. A bill was also included in the package that will provide state education aid to districts for acquiring safety technology and improving security. “Schools must be safe havens, where students can learn and teachers can teach,” Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan (REast Northport) said in a statement. “In

Editorial comment

Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan and his coalition passed a series of school safety bills last week, as the Democrats eye gun control legislation. New York, we must act swiftly and decisively to implement additional measures in schools throughout our state to give students, parents and teachers the resources and peace of mind that they deserve.” The Senate’s package also had components designed to improve school-based mental health services. One bill allocates districts $50,000 in state funding to put toward hiring a mental health services coordinator, while another requires the state Department of Education to investigate and report on the number of full- and part-time school counselors, school social workers and school psychologists in each school; the ratio of students to the number of school counselors; the ratio of students to the number of school social workers; the ratio of students to the number of school psychologists in each school; and when such staff is working in more than one school. As part of the package, another bill was passed defining school shootings as an act of terrorism, which now makes the New York State Intelligence Center in cooperation with the state Division of Homeland Security responsible for the collection, integration, receipt, processing, evaluation, analysis, fusing, dissemination, sharing and maintenance of intelligence information to aid in detecting, preventing, investigating and

responding to acts of terrorism, including school shootings. Now suspects who discharge a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school can be charged with committing an act of terrorism. The bills in the Senate’s package passed with overwhelming bipartisan support in most cases. They will head to the Assembly before arriving, if passed, at Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D) desk for signing into law. The package that passed the Assembly, if eventually passed by the Senate and signed by Cuomo, would temporarily prohibit individuals from purchasing or possessing guns if a family member or law enforcement officer petitions a court and the court finds individuals are likely to engage in conduct that would harm themselves or others. It also would establish a 10-day waiting period before a gun may be delivered to a purchaser who has not cleared a background check. Under current federal law, gun dealers must conduct a background check through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System before selling a firearm. The NICS system responds with one of three messages: “proceed,” “denied” or “delayed.” The dealer must deny the sale if the NICS background check determines the buyer is a prohibited purchaser and responds with a “denied” message. However, if the response is “delayed,” the dealer may nonetheless complete the sale after three business days. Also included in the package is a bill preventing convicted domestic abusers from purchasing or possessing a firearm. Spokespersons for Flanagan and Sen. Ken LaValle (R-Port Jefferson) did not respond to a request for comment asking if they intend to support the package of legislation passed by the Assembly.

Bellone announces safety initiative BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Schools in Suffolk County will now be offered a permanent eye in the sky. Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D) announced the SHARE initiative March 9, a program that will allow districts the ability to connect existing camera systems directly to the Suffolk County Police Department. The system would enhance the efficiency of a police department response to an active shooter situation, according to a press release from Bellone’s office. “We will do whatever it takes to protect our schools by utilizing every available tool and partnership at our disposal,” the county executive said in a statement. “The SHARE initiative will provide law enforcement the enhanced capabilities needed to respond to a security risk, and I look forward to working with our superintendents and stakeholders on how we can keep our schools safe.” The county will hold a meeting of all school district superintendents March 15 to formally seek voluntary consent with the districts interested in the program. “We have been preparing and training for the nightmare scenario that we hope never happens,” District Attorney Tim Sini (D) said in a statement. “In the police department, we enhanced our readiness for an active shooter scenario or a terrorist attack, but most importantly to take measures to prevent those incidents.”

Spearheaded by third-grader Madeline Rizzi, with other Girl Scouts, a tree trunk and branches were created on the cement walls of the cafeteria to encourage classmates, teachers and others to fill out the colorful leaves with kind messages. “A random act of kindness can take many forms, including helping someone else, speaking kind words to another, or inviting someone new into your group of friends,” Principal Lou Parrinello said. He recognized and thanked all those who joined in what he called an exemplary effort.

Juniors Sarah Acerra, below left, and Kathleen Loscalzo, below right, who attend Shoreham-Wading River High School, above, bring up carrying safety concerns during a recent board of education meeting.

SWR determined to strengthen security

Board of education discusses changes after hearing student, parent concerns during March 6 meeting BY KEVIN REDDING KEVIN@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM At Shoreham-Wading River’s board of education meeting March 6, 11th-grader Sarah Acerra took to the podium and spoke up in light of the recent Florida tragedy. “What is being done to make us students feel more safe?” Acerra asked board members. The junior said she recalled a threat made by a student last year — Thursday, March 16, 2017 — via text message that “something might occur” at the high school. The student who sent the text was quickly identified and dealt with by the district and plans were put in place for locker and school bag searches the following school day. But Acerra, who said many of her peers stayed home upon hearing about the threat, did not feel safe when she arrived back at the high school the next day. “I walked into school a little before 7 that morning — I remember it perfectly because nobody checked my bag and none of my

friends’ bags were checked either,” she said. more clarification in these emergency emails. “So the rest of the day was very uneasy for all “There was nothing about who this threat was of us because we didn’t know what was go- from, what the threat was, what the level of ing to happen.

SPORTS MATT RYAN

Matt Ryan, Miller Place graduate and former Olympian for team handball, above and left, was Team USA’s 1996 captain. He met then-president Bill Clinton, below right. Below left, Ryan hurls the handball during a game.

Miller Place handball Olympian turns hall of fame inductee BY DESIRÉE KEEGAN DESIREE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Miller Place native Matt Ryan keeps a note in his back pocket that says “The harder you work, the luckier you get.” “I knew I could control the hard work, and where it led I didn’t know,” he said. “But I knew the hard work would get me there.” His athletic determination led him to a nine-year professional handball career, becoming Team USA’s 1996 Olympic captain and three-time U.S. Handball Player of the Year. His 225 official international matches are an American record and he’s noted as one of the greatest handball players in American history. Now, he’s part of the 2018 Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame class. “It certainly paid off,” the current executive director of regional development for Georgia Institute of Technology, said laughingly. A three-sport athlete for Miller Place, his Panthers success started in basketball. He also played for the baseball team and ran cross country. “They say it takes a village to raise a child, and that was my case in Miller Place,” said Ryan, who has two older brothers and a younger sister. “Everyone was wonderful from teachers to coaches to parents, and the bond with fellow classmates, it’s a bond like none other. It’s reinforced daily, even now through Facebook. We always supported each other.”

Being in a large family on a block with many kids pushed him to his athletic limits. “Older friends in the neighborhood pushed me to come up to their level,” he said. “I learned a lot in that — how to overcome obstacles and battle through any circumstance. A lot of my work ethic came from that as well.” In 1984 as a high school senior, Ryan was the New York Basketball Player of the Year. As a junior, he was second team All-Long Island and won a gold medal at the Empire State Games with the Long Island squad. Physical education teacher and baseball coach Don Pranzo met his soon-to-be outfielder in seventh grade, and said he knew he was destined to be a great athlete. “He was amenable to teaching,” Pranzo said. “He was a good, nice kid who listened to you and tried out what you suggested.” Pranzo introduced handball to his students during class after former Miller Place physical education teacher and field hockey coach Judy Kopelman presented it to the other teachers. Kopelman, a 2008 Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame inductee, was selected to the U.S. national handball team from 1974-76. Pranzo said he had one problem asking Ryan if he’d play the game — the footwork was completely opposite of basketball. In handball, an athlete runs three steps before dribbling, and after dribbling once, can take three more running steps before dribbling again, passing or leaping into the air to shoot. Ryan was willing to give it a shot, and Pranzo said the teachers concluded that if it affected his basketball game, he’d be excused from class. “As it turns out, he played with some intensity, especially during the tournament, and he continued to play basketball and had no problem with the footwork,” Pranzo said. “He had the visual skills, the physical ability at 6-4 to go over the defense and fire the handball at the goal cage. He was very good.” Ryan went on to play basketball in college and said he thought it would be the last time he’d play handball.

The U.S. Olympic committee doesn’t have a pipeline for nontraditional sports, where team handball would fall, and instead sends recruiters out to college campuses trying to identify elite athletes across the country. Ryan took part in NFL combine-style testing after graduating, and emerged as one of the top 30 entering training camp. “I was fortunate enough to know a lot about handball thanks to Miller Place,” Ryan said. “I took a shine to it there, looking forward to those end-of-the-year tournaments.” He immersed himself into training three or four times a day, six days a week and competed internationally. He said representing Team USA was the experience of a lifetime. “I was blessed, given a tremendous opportunity and I wasn’t going to squander it,” Ryan said. “I was going to make every drop of sweat matter, whether it was in the weight room, on the track, through mental preparation and visualization, or being out on the playing field. I didn’t want to have any regrets. I wanted to walk away knowing I gave it my all.” He said while many look — Matt Ryan forward to the opening ceremony of the Olympics, he was in it for more than that. “I couldn’t wait for competition to arise,” he said. “That was an absolute charge, not only representing my team in the opening ceremony in 1996 but leading my team into competition for the six games we played.” Miller Place pitched into his Olympic appearance. Having to fund his own training and trip to the 1996 Atlanta games, his mother hosted a variety show fundraiser that thousands attended. “I was just overwhelmed with the response,” he said. “I shook everyone’s hand or gave them a hug. They sent me off with their well wishes and I was completely moved by that. It’s one of those experiences I’ve taken with me through the journey — to realize my life of sport wasn’t just on the court, but I was able to make an impact in the community and on other people in a positive way.”

‘I was blessed, given a tremendous opportunity, and I wasn’t going to squander it. I was going to make every drop of sweat matter.’

In 2004, Ryan was honored with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America National Service to Youth Award. In 2013 he was inducted to the Miller Place Athletic Hall of Fame. “The success Matt achieved both as a Miller Place student and as an alumnus is a testament to his hard work and drive,” Miller Place Superintendent Marianne Cartisano said. “His commitment to positive sportsmanship is emblematic of Miller Place athletics.” Ryan said he struggled through his Miller Place hall of fame acceptance speech because his father had just had a heart attack and wasn’t able to attend. He said he’d hoped his dad would be around if he were to be inducted into the Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame. He will be attending the induction ceremony May 10 at 7:30 p.m. at Watermill Caterers in Smithtown. “My father drove me everywhere — completely gave of himself, and now being the parent of a 12-year-old who plays sports, I know how difficult it is when he did that with me, and had three other kids involved in sports,” Ryan said. “The opportunity for him to be there and embrace this recognition with me, which is an extension of him and my mom, it’s completely overpowering.” Almost as moving as the induction honor itself. “This whole thing is humbling, quite frankly,” Ryan said. “I never set out for successes. I just put the work and effort in, the focus and drive, and let the chips fall where they may. To be part of this 2018 class, mentioned in the breadth of so many Long Island greats, it’s pretty remarkable.”

What Do You Want to Be?

ost people at several points in their lives are still working on answering the question asked of them since primary school: What do you want to be when you grow up?

Just like in school, the answer to this question continues to change. The most successful leaders across industries continue to advance and move on to new things. They do not achieve their goals and then sit back and relax. They move on to the next dream. Others realize that what once gave them excitement no longer does. Then they search for their next passion. Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do or where to even start.

FIND A MENTOR People at the top of their industry and those who follow their passions don’t get there on their own. They likely had an entire network of people who guided and supported them along the way. Many of them had mentors. The topic of professional coaches and mentors is discussed a lot in relation to climbing the ladder, but they also can be an invaluable resource for finding which ladder you want to climb.

©99594

KEEP A GOAL JOURNAL Keeping a journal of your objectives is a great way to brainstorm. What goals do you want to achieve this year? This month? What did you do today that will help you get closer to achieving your goals? Have you learned anything new? Reflecting back on the previous year can help you understand what you want out of the upcoming year.

STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES No one likes to think too hard about his or her flaws, but being honest with yourself can help you understand what you need to work on. This also is a great litmus test for understanding what you want to learn. Which ideas, actions or products excite you? How do you plan to go after jobs that can help you leverage these passions?

Professional coaches have the advantage of being an outside player. They bring a different and objective perspective on your strengths and weaknesses

and can help you create opportunities you might not have considered. 2018 Greenshoot Media

OPINION Editorial

Letters to the editor FLANAGAN’S OFFICE

The Republican-held Senate is touting its school safety package of bills, which did nothing to advance common sense gun reform.

Safe school package doesn’t address guns The two tribes have set their respective baselines while New Yorkers yearn for compromise and actual, tangible change. The Republican-held state Senate has thus far made its position clear. Billed as the way to keep kids safe, its legislative school security package, which passed March 6, has several strong ideas and mercifully doesn’t get New York educators any closer to possessing firearms on school grounds. It establishes funds for districts that want to hire school resource officers, and opened the definition to include retired or active duty police officers, deputy sheriffs and/or state troopers, who would be allowed to carry weapons on campuses. The package also provides state education aid to districts acquiring safety technology or otherwise improving security of facilities. A bill to create more funding for schools to hire additional mental health professionals was also included. On its face, the Republican package does plenty to improve safety in schools. A Suffolk County initiative announced by Executive Steve Bellone (D) last week would allow districts to give access to existing surveillance systems to the police department, designed to speed up response times during mass shooter situations. The package and the new county scheme are outside of the box and forward-thinking ideas that are we come for making students safer. The Republican plan passed with bipartisan support. However, the only use of the word “gun” in a press release announcing the package from a spokesperson for Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan (R-East Northport) is in reference to potential future legislation that would create funding for districts seeking more weapon detection systems. At the end of February, the state Senate voted down a package of measures introduced by the Democrats that aimed at addressing access to firearms. That legislative bundle included stronger background checks, a ban on bump stocks and an “extreme risk protection” measure designed to keep weapons away from people who are determined by a court to pose a risk of harm to themselves or others. In other words, common-sense, bare minimum gun control measures that do nothing to infringe on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. A similar package made it through the New York State Assembly the same day. “I am not encouraged that we’re there yet,” state Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket) said when asked if he thought the discussion about guns at the state level was progressing among both parties. “Schools must be safe havens where students can learn and teachers can teach,” Flanagan said in a statement announcing the Republican bills. “In New York, we must act swiftly and decisively to implement additional measures in schools throughout our state to give students, parents and teachers the resources and peace of mind that they deserve.” He and his fellow local senator from the Republican conference, Ken LaValle (R-Port Jefferson), have yet to respond to a request for comment through respective spokespersons asking if either intend to support the Assembly package. If the Republicans are serious about creating “peace of mind” for schools and parents, the school safety measures are an excellent start, but the Assembly package should be passed too.

Port Jeff student: Politics belong in student walkout discussions I am an admittedly very opinionated junior who attends Earl L. Vandermeulen High School. I read the March 8 Port Times Record article entitled “Port Jeff area students, parents and districts weigh in on gun legislation ‘walkout,’” about members of the district weighing in on the complex issue of the walkouts and gun control. I could not help but feel that the article did not accurately portray all the views of the students who attend school here. The article uses the plural “students,” but the only interview or opinion voiced came from one of my friends, Ben Zaltsman. I understand the importance and reasoning for an interview with the Student Organization president but I don’t think that his views accurately represent the #enough movement in its entirety or all of the student body. I am the creator and one of the admins of the Instagram page @pjhswalkout, which is a social media account devoted to the sharing of support for a walkout and increased gun legislation. As of this writing, the account has 121 followers, which is a significant number considering the small population of our school. I, as well as some like-minded friends, use the account to make announcements and gather support for student action about gun legislation. We also have

been in contact with the much larger Ward Melville protest through Instagram and there are talks of working together on many different things because we are all united in this fight. The issue that we took was that the school district as well as Ben, as shown in your article, took the politics out of the issue. As you can find on its website, #enough has this mission statement: “Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers after school shootings. We need action. We demand Congress pass sensible legislation that would help keep us and our loved ones safe from gun violence.” The issue with simply holding a memorial is that the message behind this movement gets stripped. As a result of social media discussions as well as some emails sent to administration, there was a meeting held March 8 in which we discussed a plan of action. Here is a new and updated agenda of events held March 14: At 10 a.m. there was a memorial service for those who were killed in Parkland. This lasted until 10:17 a.m. at which point there was a transition to an informative portion in which myself and some of the other admins and supporters of #enough went into the meaning behind the movement.

We wanted to emphasize that this is political, but at the same time it does not need to be divisive. Everyone can agree, hopefully, that violence is bad, and that some form of advanced regulation is required. An important thing to note is that another friend of mine, who doesn’t necessarily agree with our political views, spoke during the event. This is because we wanted to not only allow ample time for a fair and equal discussion that covers both halves of the issue, but we wanted to emphasize the common ground between the two parties that often gets muddled up in arguments. This was a discussion of our message, as well as a call to action. Throughout the day there was a station open with a database on U.S. government representatives from both New York and other states, as well as various letter templates to make petitioning them easier for those who wanted to take action. We wanted to make sure that out of this comes some good, and talking and memorializing is important but it is the sending of letters, making the representatives aware of our stance on gun violence that helps facilitate change.

Gavin Barrett Port Jefferson

We’ve heard the arguments before Now let’s hear from the National Rifle Association about the most recent school massacre in Florida: “Our thoughts and prayers”; “People kill people”; and “We need guns in all the schools.” Let’s take the responses one at a time. All of us are remembering the most recent victims, but school shootings are only increasing in spite of those thoughts and prayers. Of course people kill people, and the weapon of choice is the gun. Since people kill people, why

is the NRA dragging its feet in supporting background checks on all gun purchases and not just those sold in stores? Why is the NRA not speaking out to impose restrictions on sales to people on the terrorist watch list and those convicted of domestic violence? Guns in schools? Sure, and make sure that each one has a bump stock that can convert the weapon to automatic, and extra capacity banana clips that increase killing power. I have been a gun owner all of

my life, and early on I was a NRA member. That organization left me behind years ago. What we need to do now is reduce the influence of the bullying gun lobbyists and vote for representatives who refuse to take campaign contributions from the NRA. It is well past time to stop talking and start bringing pressure on our elected officials to enact laws that protect our children.

STILL SEEING SIGNS OF WINTER: Frank Melville Memorial Park in East Setauket.

Media mob wades into penguin paradise

I

t’s got great pictures and is good news. As a result, it’s a story heard around the world. Back in 2015, Heather Lynch, an associate professor of ecology and evolution at Stony Brook University’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, started the tedious yet important job of counting Adélie penguins in a place with a well-earned name: the Danger Islands. This chain of nine Antarctic islands is surrounded by rocks and potentially shipice. By Daniel Dunaief trapping These parameters present a picture-perfect paradise for Adélie penguins, who live, breed, eat, squawk and poop there — more on that in a moment. Armed with drones that fly over these islands and working with collaborators from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution at Oxford University in England and Louisiana State University in

Baton Rouge, Lynch and others counted these flightless birds. The final number came to an astounding 1.5 million. Wait, but how could a planet so well covered by satellite imagery, where you can see your car in your driveway through online apps, not know about a colony so large that it’s called a supercolony? We kind of knew that they lived there, although not in such staggering numbers, when a plane flew overhead in 1957. It wasn’t until more recently, however, that Lynch and Mathew Schwaller from NASA in Greenbelt, Maryland, studied satellite images from guano stains — this is where the poop comes in — that they had an idea of the enormity of a population of penguins that would make Mr. Popper proud. News outlets, including TBR News Media, couldn’t get enough of the story, grabbing the pictures, getting Lynch and her colleagues on the phone and learning about the creatures. Publications of all political stripes, from The New York Times to CNN, to The Wall Street Journal to Breitbart News have all covered it. “It’s a good news story,” said

Lynch. “People latched onto that.” Lynch said she spoke directly with 12 or more journalists. At the same time, about 360 stories mentioned Stony Brook and penguins. Some of the coverage has included mistakes. One report, for example, had spectacular visuals. The narrative, however, suggested the Danger Islands was a hotspot for penguins because the location has been left undisturbed by people. “That’s not what I said,” she said. “The question was, ‘Why hadn’t we discovered them before?’ The answer was because this is not an area where people go.” That, she said, is not the same as suggesting that the penguins flourished because humans haven’t been there. It only means we didn’t know about them because visiting the islands is so hazardous. Another outlet suggested that the Adélie penguins were on the verge of extinction. Not only is that inaccurate, but the population has been growing, as previous research from Lynch indicated. While that may not fit a simple climate-change narrative, it supports the concept of a warming world. To simplify the message, the

climate-change community has made a link between population and climate, which is “impossible to break,” she said, even though it’s also inaccurate. There is this “kind of tug of war between the scientists dealing with nuance and detail, and the conversation community,” she said. They don’t need to be at odds, she added. Indeed, this colony thrives because the Danger Islands hasn’t increased in temperature at the same rate as other parts of the Antarctic. The media spotlight taught her a few lessons. For starters, in addition to the talking points she had during her interactions, she would include bullet points in the negative, to make it clear what the researchers aren’t saying. Ultimately, however, Lynch recognizes the value of the photos. “The drone footage is amazing and stunning,” she said. She gives credit to the Woods Hole staff. “If we didn’t have pictures” the story would likely not have received such extensive coverage. What’s the lesson? From now on, she said, “I’ll think about the visuals in advance, if I want the attention.”
