School district plans textbook donation to Liberian villages BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Little more than 4,516 miles separate Mount Sinai from Bong County, Liberia. That didn’t stop the Mount Sinai School District from extending a helping hand to children across the world. It all began when the district was transitioning to a newer textbook program and were wondering what they could do with the trove of older textbooks. Elizabeth Hine, Mount Sinai Elementary School assistant principal, said they didn’t want the books to go to waste. Initially they considered several options for the books, including contacting other school districts to see if they wanted the books as well as BOCES and other organizations, but they were still left with a large heap of books crowding their closets. Hine was then given an idea, courtesy of her daughter Kathleen Alfin. A friend that went to graduate school with her at the University of Wisconsin-Madison was looking to build a school for a number of villages in Liberia. “She told me that he was starting this school for these villages,” she said. “She showed pictures of the villages and she told me he could use these books.”
Emmanuel Urey, Alfin’s friend, last year came up with a plan to build a four-classroom school with a bathroom and office facilities in his village of Gormue, which is located in an isolated part of Liberia. Urey set up a GoFundMe page two years ago to help with the construction of the school. As of today, 63 people in total have raised close to $5,000 of the $10,000 goal. Gormue and its surrounding villages have no access to school, according to the page. The only nearby elementary school is a two-hour walk for these villagers and there are no transportation facilities in this area. Hine and Urey got in contact, and the Mount Sinai district agreed to donate the books to Liberian’s native school. Last month, Urey traveled to Mount Sinai Elementary to thank Hine and other school officials for the upcoming donation. At Mount Sinai, Urey was given a few sample books to bring back to his village, while they continued to get the majority of the books to Liberia. Alfin, who now teaches at the United States Military Academy in West Point, said Urey was her linguistic tutor during graduate school and she was trying to learn his native language. “I think it is great what they’ve been able to do,” she said. “This is not something that hap-

2018, they helped shipped 140 small laptop computers to children in both Sri Lanka and to the Maasai tribe in Kenya. Superintendent Gordon Brosdal said the school board needed to approve the donation but once they had heard what Hine was planning to do, they were immediately on board to help. “I’m really grateful for them for letting us do this,” he said. “I want to thank Elizabeth and her daughter for bringing this to our attention.” The superintendent said they didn’t want to discard these books even though they had found a new reading program. “Sometimes you want to discard things, but you don’t realize that these things could be valuable to other people that are so needy,” he said. “It means the world to another country.” The process of getting the rest of the books to the school in Liberia is still ongoing, according to Hine. The materials will be used by six villages and about 150 students in the new school. The construction of the school is almost complete; the building was recently roofed and they are building a well to supply the school with water. Classes are expected to start September 2019.

pens every day.” Later in May, Urey visited Gormue and gave the sample books to the children and interim school master. Currently Urey, Hine and others are working on getting a Rotary Club in New York to ship the books to a Rotary Club of Monrovia in Liberia. This is not the first time Mount Sinai district has been able to help children overseas. In July

Duck Pond Day makes a splash
BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM
Locals were out in force June 2 for the 25th annual Duck Pond Day, and though there was a conspicuous lack of fowl in the pond, visitors got to have a taste of music from the Jan Hanna Band, pet young calves and goats at a stand by Bakewicz farms and check out the wares of a
multitude of local vendors. Hosted by the Wading River-Shoreham Chamber of Commerce, events started at 8:30 with a 5K run, where the $1,500 raised from the run was donated to the Fight Like a Girl Army, a Wading River-based nonprofit that fundraises for breast cancer research and local scholarships.

New LGBT center opens in Hauppauge
Location is largest of its kind in the United States For Long Island’s LGBT community, a new 15,000 square-foot center is hoping to become the go-to center for helping those in the gay, bisexual and transgender communities. On May 31, on the eve of Pride Month, community members and elected officials gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony of the nonprofit association LGBT Network’s new facility at 125 Kennedy Drive, Suite 100, Hauppauge. The new center will feature 7,500 square feet of community space which includes a café and workforce development program for young people. The Hauppauge facility will be the nation’s largest suburban LGBT center yet. When LGBT Network president and CEO, David Kilmnick, began the organization 25 years ago, individuals were simply looking for a place to be themselves. “Twenty-five years later that need is just as great, if not even greater considering the climate we live in today — hate crimes are on the rise,” he said. The organization’s beginning began during Kilmnick’s time as a graduate student. As part of a project, he conducted a workshop in several school districts throughout Long Island,
talking to students about growing up LGBT in the suburbs. He said after every workshop a few individuals would come up and ask him if there was a place to go where they could meet people like themselves. “When I heard this from kids across the Island, I knew this project had to turn into something more,” he said. The new site will include meeting and conference facilities, expansive health and human service programs including drop-in HIV testing five days a week, year-round arts and cultural programs, as well as additional services for LGBT-headed families and LGBT immigrants. The LGBT Network will employ more than 55 full-time staff at the new facility, making it one of the top 10 percent of employers in the region. The LGBT Network president said he has heard from numerous individuals that if it wasn’t for the organization they don’t know if they’d be alive. “Our centers are saving lives every day, and this center will continue to do that for now and the next generations,” he said. “So today we begin a new chapter in helping all Long Islanders to be themselves, stay healthy and change the world.” Suffolk County Legislature Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory (D-Amityville) shared his personal experiences of being a parent to his

son, who came out to him as gay when he was 12 while they were getting ice cream. “At first I was concerned, you don’t want your child to be a target,” he said. “Now there is a safe place for our youth and others to go.” Gregory said he has supported the organization for quite some time and is glad the new site is finally open. “This center will be great for future generations,” he said.

Brexit: Another prime minister casualty, stalemate still A Brit gives further updates on the political woes across the pond
BY JOHN BROVEN DESK@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Part two of three I’ve been waiting patiently to write this second part of my personal Brexit overview (see part 1, “Brexit: To leave or not to leave, that is the big question,” TBR News Media’s papers and websites, March 14). There has been an interested response from TBR readers, although as expected not everybody agreed with my Europhile stance or interpretation of events. An apt New York Times description was “fractured Britain.” Even now, there is no resolution to the terms for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to leave the European Union as determined by a national referendum June 23, 2016, almost three years ago — the vote was 51.89 to 48.11 percent. The March 29 deadline went by, so did one on April 12. Now the departure date has been extended begrudgingly by the EU until Oct. 31. That’s Halloween, as many wags have pointed out. Still the drama continues.
Prime Minister Theresa May resigns
On May 24, Prime Minister Theresa May (Conservative, known as Tories) announced her forthcoming departure in tears for failing to deliver Brexit. Never a team player, she was rapidly losing support among her Brexit-leaning party. The withdrawal agreement negotiated with the EU was criticized from all sides even as May tried to soften her parliamentary bill by including environmental measures, workers rights and even the prospect of a second referendum — anathema to Brexiteers in her own party. With no majority in sight for her deal, she will formally resign on June 7, immediately after the state visit by President Donald Trump (R). She is now the second prime minister to be felled by Brexit in the footsteps of David Cameron (Conservative), who was responsible for calling the 2016 referendum. Indeed, the Tory Party’s neurosis with Europe had previously ensnared former prime ministers, Margaret Thatcher and John Major.
Tory leadership battle
Now, the Brexit process has been put on hold while the ruling Conservative Party elects a new leader, expected by the end of July. That leaves four short months to finalize leave arrangements. Understandably, the EU is running out of patience and has indicated it will not renegotiate the deal on the table, including the controversial Irish backstop. The number of Tory prime minister
candidates currently stands at 11, still well short of the tally of U.S. Democratic presidential candidates. At the time of writing the bookies favorite is the selfserving former mayor of London, Boris Johnson, the New York City-born member of parliament of British parents who dealt a fatal blow to Cameron’s 2016 Vote Remain campaign by treacherously joining the Vote Leave team. The covertly ambitious Michael Gove and hardliner Dominic Raab are also in the running. Just as the U.S. Democratic candidates are in a quandary over presidential impeachment proceedings, so the U.K. Tory leadership candidates are scrambling for Brexit answers. Our president has caused local controversy by favoring Johnson. If the former mayor is elected as prime minister by the Conservative Party and his pronouncements are carried out, he could lead the country into the worst of all possibilities on Oct. 31 — a hard no deal. It is chilling to think that such a chaotic scenario could happen to the fifth largest economy in the world, with an impact far beyond the borders of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. As Will Hutton described it in London’s The Guardian, the Brexiteers view is of a blissful but flawed image of “sunlit uplands of immigrant-free, global free trade.” Sir Elton John, also in The Guardian, was more blunt: “I’m ashamed of my country for what it has done. It’s torn people apart … I am sick to death of politicians, especially British politicians. I am sick to death of Brexit. I am a European. I am not a stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot.”
EU elections shock
The British government had hoped to avoid taking part in the recent EU elections, but as the country was still formally one of the 28 member states the people went to the polls on May 23. In keeping with the unpredictable Brexit mess, what a shocking result it turned out to be. Former UKIP leader and an elected member of the European Parliament since 1999, Nigel Farage, who has been described by his Euro colleagues as a “one-man wrecking ball,” had formed the new Brexit Party only six weeks previously and topped the polls with a 30.8 percent share of the vote. The two leading parties in British politics for almost 100 years, Labour (third place) and Conservatives (fifth), managed a meager 23 percent of the vote between them, beaten by second-place Liberal Democrats with their remain message and fourth-place Green Party
France and Italy showed gains but surprisingly little elsewhere, notably in Holland. There was a general message that the EU needs to address growth, security, immigration (again) and climate change (the U.S. please note). Still, with a turnout in excess of 50 percent, there are indications the Europeans still see their union as the future. In the wake of the Brexit debacle, it seems the other Euro populist movements are determined to fight for their cause from inside the EU, not on the outside with little influence. Incidentally, I was impressed by the BBC World News TV election coverage Sunday, May 26, and its first-class presenter Ros Atkins. I learned a lot about the EU, its procedures, the debating arguments and how countries from Germany to Latvia voted. If only Brexit voters had been educated likewise.
Where the UK stands

with an urgent climate-change agenda. Tellingly, the Tories suffered their worst election result since formation in 1834 and registered only 8.8 percent of the vote, with no seats won in London. May’s party had also taken a shellacking in the earlier county council elections. That’s the current governing party, don’t forget. As The Washington Post noted, coalition governments and a genuine multiparty system may be the future of British politics. In effect, British voters were giving a severe kicking to the government and lead opposition party under arch-socialist Jeremy Corbyn for their inept handling of Brexit. Intriguingly, Scotland and Northern Ireland still balloted majority votes to remain candidates. The MEPs term will end if and when Brexit occurs. Taking all the parties into account, the respective total leave and remain votes were very close, which is where we came in — a divided nation with a divided parliament and parties internally divided. The cross-Europe vote showed a fragmentation of parties, with the establishment center-left and center-right bloc losing power. The populist parties in Britain,
Embarrassingly, Britain’s pragmatic standing in the world seems to be falling by the day. I’ve lost count of the number of barbed Monty Python jokes I’ve seen in print. As my good friend John Ridley, of Hildenborough, Kent, told me, “I can’t recall any other democratic country committing an act of such extreme self-harm ever before.” The Brexit fiasco shows on a macro level that elections do matter and do have consequences — in this instance, for an entire nation and its future. And the dangers of putting such a critical issue to an illinformed public by way of a loosely worded referendum have been fully exposed. If there is a lesson for us all, it is a message that TBR News Media carries at every election: Your vote counts, please vote — and do understand what you’re voting for. That applies from presidential elections to the local fire departments, libraries and schools (the turnout for the recent Three Village Central School District budget vote was abysmal). With Brexit still unresolved, I am readying myself for a part 3 Your Turn article but further patience may be required on the part of myself and TBR readers. Will there be a second referendum, general election, another EU extension or a hard no deal? John Broven, a member of the TBR News Media editorial team, is an English-born resident of East Setauket, who immigrated to the United States in 1995. He has written three award-winning (American) music history books. An updated edition of his second book, “South to Louisiana: The Music of the Cajun Bayous,” has just been published.

Shoreham village looks to expand coverage for RP Fire District BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM The Village of Shoreham is looking to put themselves under the protective umbrella of the nearby ﬁre department. While the village currently contracts with the Rocky Point Fire District, village ofﬁcials have requested home rule applications to extend the ﬁre district boundaries to encompass the tiny North Shore municipality. It might seem like a minor change but expanding the district boundaries to include the .5-square-mile village could take months of work getting the state to agree to the extension. For more than a decade, Shoreham village has contracted out to the Rocky Point Fire District for their ﬁre and emergency service needs, according to Rocky Point Fire District manager Ed Brooks. Neither a representative of Shoreham village nor the village attorney, the Riverhead-based Anthony Tohill, responded to multiple requests for comment. If the district boundaries are expanded, the cost will instead come out of village residents’ taxes paid to the district. Brooks said the cost shouldn’t be much different for village residents
either monetarily or in the coverage by the district. “We met with them, they sent us some literature and letters, we had a meeting, we advised our attorney, we have given our consent to make the application,” Brooks said. Village ofﬁcials requested that the Town of Brookhaven send a home rule request to the New York State legislature to extend the ﬁre district’s boundaries, which was approved unanimously at Brookhaven’s May 23 meeting. A copy of the letter for the request was forwarded to State Sen. Ken LaValle (R-Port Jefferson) and Assemblyman Anthony Palumbo (R-New Suffolk). The expansion of the district boundaries requires home rule requests by both Shoreham village and the Town of Brookhaven to New York State, requesting special legislation to expand. The process could take months. “By extending the boundaries, the state gets involved, there’s legislation — it’s a long process,” said town Councilwoman Jane Bonner (R-Rocky Point). The Village of Old Field started the same process at the tail end of 2016 to bring in the Setauket Fire District. By July of 2017 the town hosted a public hearing and approved

the extension. The ﬁre district taxes were on residents’ bills by December of that year. Rocky Point Fire District attorney, the Port Jefferson-based Bill Glass, who represents the ﬁre district, said this change would have virtually no difference to the district, adding it would
also have little to no difference in the amount the village pays for emergency services. “When these contracts were designed, they were designed that [village residents] would pay as much as if they were paying for it through their taxes,” Glass said.

Troop 161 Scouts make Eagle BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Eight young men from Boy Scouts of America Troop 161 have worked hard over the past 11 years and on June 1 finally stood tall as Eagle Scouts at a ceremony at St. John the Baptist Church in Wading River. Many of the Scouts started as Tiger Cubs in Pack 404 at Riley Ave and Pack 161 in Shoreham. Three of the new Eagle Scouts, seniors Eric
DiLisio, John German and Ronan O’Tool, are students from Shoreham-Wading River High School. Five others, including junior Erich Fuhrmann, junior Hunter Pozgay, sophomore Joseph Pozgay, junior Jacob Raynor and junior Matthew Sherman are students at Riverhead High School. The ceremonies were attended by Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker (D-Mount Sinai), Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine (R) and U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley).

Middle schoolers win big in mock trial Miller Place’s master debaters from North Country Road Middle School’s Mock Trial Club recently competed in a tournament at Suffolk County Community College against neighboring schools to showcase their knowledge of the law. Leading up to the mock trial at SCCC, Miller Place’s club members worked to perfect their legal arguments by memorizing affidavits, preparing opening and closing statements and forming questions to secure their side of the
case. When they stepped into the courtroom, the Panthers put their knowledge to the test and showcased their questioning techniques, critical thinking and oral advocacy skills. Each team was presented with one case and worked with teammates to lead an in-depth investigation and a thorough presentation. NCRMS’s team went home proud after the defense won both the performance and case categories while the prosecution team won in the performance category.

Shoreham-Wading River High School
SWR names 2019 valedictorian and salutatorian
Shoreham-Wading River High School announced the top students of the 2019 graduating class are seniors Mahdi Rashidzada and Katlynn McGivney, who have been named valedictorian and salutatorian, respectively. Rashidzada’s list of achievements includes taking 12 Advanced Placement courses and six honors courses. He is on the school’s track and field team and is vice president of the National Honor Society, captain of the Debate Team, a member of Mathletes, president of the National History Day Club and a member of the Riverhead Youth Court. His list of accolades includes being a Suffolk County Math Teachers’ Association fourth-place honor, as well as school awards in AP Chemistry, AP Language, Spanish IV, Human Physiology and STEM. Outside of school, he is a Sunday school teacher at the Islamic Center of Long Island, was involved in a local political campaign as an intern and volunteers for Long Island Cares and Stony Brook Hospital. He was also named an RPI Science and Mathematics scholar and a New York State Debate qualifier. He has received National Merit commendation and conducted research on the antimicrobial properties of herbal hydrosols in the high school’s science lab as well as at St. Joseph’s College. “Do what you love,” Rashidzada said when asked to share some sentiments with his fellow graduates and future seniors at the high school. “It is important to find what you love and what you’re good at and really pursue it.” He will major in neuroscience on the premed track and said he looks forward to entering the freshman class at the University of Pennsylvania in September. Throughout high school, Katlynn McGivney has participated in a well-rounded educational, academic, athletic and volunteer career. She has taken advantage of the school’s numerous AP and honors courses and has been recognized with excellence awards in Biology Honors, Chemistry Honors, French III and AP Capstone Seminar. She has played volleyball since ninth grade, softball since eighth grade, ran winter track and has received a varsity letter for three years. McGivney is secretary of the school’s student government and a member of the National Honor Society as well as the Women in Science and Engineering Club. As for community service, she enjoys her work in the district’s Round Out summer camp as a volunteer and has also volunteered for local community programs. She is a page at the North Shore Public Library and plays travel softball for the Long Island Crush and club volleyball. McGivney succinctly summed up some words of wisdom for her peers with, “Make the most of your high school experience and enjoy it while you can. It will be over before you know it.” She has committed to study at Hamilton College to pursue biochemistry and play on the softball team. “I am proud and honored to have Mahdi and Katlynn represent Shoreham-Wading River High School as our top two students,” Principal Frank Pugliese said. “They both exemplify the mission and vision we all have for our students while they are here and as they head out into college and careers — maximizing their potential, creating responsible citizens and fostering a lifelong appreciation for learning.”
Check back throughout the month of June for more stories about the local schools’ Val/Sals.

Change direction Mental health is often a topic people prefer to avoid discussing, but thanks to Dante Lombardo, a young former Marine who shared his story last month with TBR News Media, we now have the opportunity to emphasize the importance of mental health and wellness. Give an Hour is a national network of professionals who extend free mental health care to support veterans and communities impacted by tragedy. After reading Lombardo’s story, they’ve asked him, as he and his high school friends embark on a cross-country bike excursion, to join the global campaign, Change Direction, which aims to raise awareness to help change the culture surrounding mental health issues. We are thrilled that our newspaper is bringing people together and want to do our part to help open the public discussion on the topic. As listed on Give an Hour’s website, www.giveanhour.org, here are the five signs of emotional suffering that indicate someone may need help: • Personality changes: People in this situation may behave in ways that seem different or don’t seem to fit their values. •Uncharacteristically anxious, agitated or moody: People in more extreme situations may be unable to sleep, may explode in anger at a minor problem or have difficulties controlling his or her temper. • Withdrawal: Someone who used to be socially engaged may pull away from family and friends and stop taking part in activities that used to be enjoyable. In more severe cases, the person may start failing to make it to work or school. Not to be confused with the behavior of someone who is more introverted, this sign is marked by a change in a person’s typical sociability. • Neglecting self-care and engaging in risky behavior: Someone may let personal hygiene deteriorate, or the person may start abusing alcohol or illicit substances or engaging in other self-destructive behavior that may alienate loved ones. • Hopelessness and overwhelmed by circumstances: Have you noticed someone who used to be optimistic and now can’t find anything about which to be hopeful? That person may be suffering from extreme or prolonged grief or feelings of worthlessness or guilt. People in this situation may say the world would be better off without them, suggesting suicidal thinking. If you recognize someone suffering with these symptoms, the professionals from Change Direction encourage you to reach out, to connect, to inspire hope and to offer your help. They say it’s important to show compassion and to display a willingness to find a solution when a person may not have the will or drive to do it alone. The campaign organizers emphasize that it may take more than one offer, and you may need to reach out to others who share your concern about the person who is suffering. The bottom line is that if everyone is open and honest about emotional health and well-being, together we can prevent pain and suffering and those in need will get the help that they deserve. You can learn more about this topic at: www. changedirection.org. If you missed Lombardo’s story, you can find it online at: www.tbrnewsmedia.com/tag/dante-lombardo/.

Letters to the editor
Help me to understand If I tell you my story, I wonder what you will hear. What you will feel? I was 30. Two years into the fight for my life and talking with Dr. Y about my most recent symptoms, I will never forget the look on his face that I believe he meant to professionally conceal. His eyes were wide with concern, almost fear, when he asked me if there was any chance that I was pregnant. Lifting my arm to brush my teeth was a challenge, so physical intimacy was a rare event — plus I had always been extremely careful about using birth control. A little too firmly he told me we had to find out. He caught himself, softened his tone to remind me that the “big guns medicine” I was taking to keep me alive could have devastating
effects on any baby. A pregnancy would put my hard-won, fragile health at risk. A couple of hard weeks of waiting and that scare was put to rest. I cannot even begin to describe the relief, mixed in with the sadness, that I felt when it was confirmed that there was no pregnancy, no baby. I would not have to travel into the psychological hell of having to decide what to do, if I had been pregnant. I have always been behind a woman’s right to choose, but, like so many women, abortion is not a decision I could have reached without agony. I am usually very private about this part of my life, but access to both birth control and abortion are becoming severely limited in some parts of the country. I feel compelled
to speak on behalf of any young women who are in the same place I had been. Women physically unable to lift a baby from a crib. Women who love and want to be loved, while they are living the nightmare of illness. Are they and their partners to be condemned to a life of celibacy? A life lived without the freedom to experience the fullness of love? Because birth control does fail, pregnancy can be a very real death sentence. So please sit quietly in my shoes. We can’t always see another’s inner challenges. Pray into my story if prayer is your way to understanding. What might your compassionate answer be? Help me to understand.

High school students help to build bridges On May 23, I had the pleasure of attending an event at Ward Melville High School, sponsored by the newly formed Muslim Student Association. The event was called “Ever Wondered About the Tradition of Ramadan?” and invited the community to join a discussion on Muslim traditions and culture and break fast together, in an effort to reduce Islamphobia through meaningful dialogue and education. The evening was beautifully organized by the students, and I came away with deeper understanding and a stronger sense of community. The keynote speaker, Dr. Hafiz Ur Rehman, spoke about the connections between our cultures, and how the act of breaking bread and sharing a meal together goes a long way toward creating connections. I was also pleased to hear from Town of Brookhaven Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port
Jefferson Station), who spoke about the need for communities to practice acceptance to truly thrive. At a time when too many of our politicians are seeking to divide with their rhetoric, it was refreshing and encouraging to see the opposite happening in our community. At the Iftar meal, I sat and spoke with members of the community. As Dr. Rehman said, having the opportunity to break bread together allowed us to talk not only about our faiths, but about our common experiences in our schools and community. Though we come from different faiths, we have a shared interest in building a strong, accepting and welcoming place in which our children can grow up. I was truly moved by the maturity and poise of these students who organized and ran this event. As an educator, I have witnessed teenagers work through
solidifying their sense of identity and community. For many of these students, the choice to proudly embrace their faith and culture is accompanied by fear of discrimination. I am always amazed by how young people rise to and often beyond the moment at hand, and teach all of us about what community means, and what courage and empathy looks like. The young people are the ones who will lead us to be a society where we build bridges rather than walls, where we appreciate each other’s uniqueness while embracing our common humanity. As an educator and parent in the Three Village community, I am grateful to the Ward Melville Muslim Student Association for breaking bread and sharing the tradition of Iftar with my family.

Trump’s activities create more doubts The latest from Donald J. Trump’s memoir: In Japan, he praised the North Korean dictator who starves his people, explodes nuclear weapons — two just recently — and says this does not violate the United Nations Resolutions against nukes being exploded. He trusts what Kim said to him about his (Kim’s) toys.
Trump accepts the dictator Russian Vladimir Putin’s view that Russia didn’t interfere with our 2016 election, but what does Putin have on Trump and his family? One must ask oneself if this is the man our children should see as a role model? I doubt it. I also doubt that the Republican enablers read the Mueller report; perhaps
like Trump, the report was too long. But perhaps these Republican enablers will be asked by their grandchildren, “What did you do when President Trump tried to destroy our democracy?” Herbert Laub Stony Brook

Seeking words of wisdom for our graduates
e pack our cars, suitcases and purses. We bring cameras, camcorders, extra batteries, chargers and cards ﬁlled with positive messages and gifts. At this time of year, we bear witness to the conclusion of one educational course — primary, middle or high school, college or even graduate school — as we and the graduate prepare for the next step. D. None In between of the above bites from the BY DANIEL DUNAIEF buffet, we pause for proud pictures with the graduate
and we share our admiration for what he or she has accomplished even as we anticipate the next adventure. Most of these ceremonies involve walking, sitting, standing and cheering, eating and driving. The action takes a backseat to the words and sentiment that mark the occasion. The graduation speakers offer personal anecdotes and words of wisdom, even as they recognize that short speeches, particularly for those eager to ﬁll an empty stomach or discharge a full bladder, are a welcome part of the day. While we’re milling around, we have ample opportunities to impart our own wisdom, to share encouraging words and to provide the kind of tailwind that accelerates the next phase of life. So, what do we say? Did we pack our belongings, but neglect to choose from the wealth of words that can ﬁll a sail with air, that can help us feel capable of defying gravity, that can enable us to see through this moment to a magnificent future?
How often do we watch an interview with someone who has accomplished the unimaginable, who doesn’t know what to say or who is it at a loss for words when someone shoves a microphone in that person’s direction? We have time to consider the right words, to be supportive, and to make our trip to another state or another school meaningful, even if the graduate is too close to the focal point of his or her life to know how to react to the torrent of feelings and thoughts. We can rely on a Hallmark card, a Thesaurus or a set of clichés to share our thoughts, or we can take a moment to ﬁnd the right words, in between all our packing, our search for the right gift and our purchasing plane tickets. Someday, a daughter graduate may be sitting on a plane heading for a meeting in Salt Lake City and may wonder how she got there and whether she can succeed in the next phase. Maybe she’ll recall the moment you took her aside, placed your hand on her shoulder, smiled in her
eyes and suggested she paved her own path with perspiration — if she appreciates alliteration. She may recall how you enveloped her hand in yours when you reminded her that everything, even a moment of weakness, provides opportunities for the next success. Perfection, she’ll recall as she remembers how you accidentally spit on her cheek when you started to speak, isn’t about the perfect achievement but about the perfect effort. She will recall the moment you told her how much she inspired you with her awareness of the needs of others and with her grace under pressure. If your graduate is anything like the ones in my family, for whom skepticism and cynicism hover nearby, he or she may roll their eyes and search for a phone to text a friend to ask if the recipient of the message can believe what you just said. Someday, the graduate or that friend may borrow a word, phrase or idea from the ones you shared, providing fuel to a tank that seemed empty and converting the next impossible task into a reality.
story about the source of the grudge. Rather than being a victim, think of yourself as heroic. Then think of the good things in your life so as to balance the harm. And remember that life doesn’t always turn out the way we want. Luskin emphasizes that forgiveness is a learnable skill. It just takes a little practice, he advises. Now all of the above sounds good but I have another track to suggest. To sooth a grudge, there is nothing quite as satisfying as revenge. And the best revenge? A life well lived. It’s an old adage but true. So what makes for a life well lived? I guess there are as many answers as there are people, but I can tell you mine. Make your home a happy and comfortable place by creating a room or a corner just for yourself. All you need is a special chair with a ﬂuffy pillow or a bedside table with your latest reading choices or music source, and of course a picture you love on the wall. Take an aromatic bath. Welcome friendship and love
in your life. If all else fails, get a dog. When the weather is glorious, take a guilt-free walk, even for ﬁve minutes. Say hello to strangers in the post ofﬁce or the supermarket aisle and watch a smile appear on their faces. Make yourself something you really like to eat, and if you shouldn’t be eating it, just eat a little. Do some kind of work that is worthy of you, then take pride in the way you carry it out. Clean out just one desk drawer and feel like you have your life under control. Remember to laugh at life’s little incongruities. Go see a good movie. Or a play. Or attend a concert. These can all be found locally. Plan a trip, even if it’s only for a Saturday afternoon to the East End. Then go on it and see how many new things there are to see. Buy a shirt or an ice cream cone. Celebrate every possible occasion and even celebrate just for the heck of it. Take a nap, if only for 20 minutes. And for Pete’s sake, read a newspaper, preferably a hometown paper because that tends to have more good news!
Revenge is sweet
recent article in The New York Times asked, “What is your oldest or most cherished grudge?” Everyone holds grudges, I guess, and they can range from some perceived slight or cutting remark to deep hurt or betrayal. While we all know that forgiveness is a lot healthier than anger, still there is something immutable about a deeply held grudge. However hard and sincerely you try to let go of it and go on with your life, Between it’s impossible to entirely discard the you and me pain. Some people BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF even admit to tending their grudges
like a garden. “Holding onto a grudge really is an ineffective strategy for dealing with a life situation that you haven’t been able to master,” said Dr. Frederic Luskin, founder of the Stanford Forgiveness Project, as reported in separate Times articles by Tim Herrera and Katherine Schulten. The psychological study suggested that “skills-based forgiveness training may prove effective in reducing anger as a coping style, reducing perceived stress and physical health symptoms, and thereby may help reduce” the stress we put on our immune and cardiovascular systems. Carrying anger into old age can result in higher levels of inﬂammation and chronic illness. So how do we discard grudges? How do we forgive? Luskin urges that we recognize three things. First that forgiveness is for you, not the offender. Second that it’s best to do it now. And ﬁnally that forgiveness is about freeing yourself. Then to continue the process, change the

Eagles fall in Class A ﬁnal BY BILL LANDON DESK@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM It was a must-win game for the Eagles of Rocky Point to even the series and force a game three during the June 3 Class A ﬁnals, but the Sayville bats picked up the pace in the ﬁfth and sixth innings to dethrone the defending Suffolk Class A baseball champions,
putting the game away 8-3. The Eagles, who defeated Shoreham-Wading River a year ago to capture their ﬁrst county title in their program history, concluded their season 15-4 in their division. The Eagles will have their work cut out for them next season as they’ll lose nine players of their 15-man roster to graduation. Photos clockwise from top
