BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Elected officials in the Town of Brookhaven are taking steps that could both lengthen and shorten their time in office. The town board voted to hold a public hearing Aug. 2 on the idea of instituting a three-term limit on elected positions while also extending the length of a term from two to four years at a June 26 meeting. This would limit officials to 12 years in office. Brookhaven is currently the only town on Long Island with two-year terms for elected officials, according to Supervisor Ed Romaine (R). “I’m supporting it because when you have the entire government turn over every two years it can provide for a lack of stability,” Romaine said on changing from twoyear to four-year terms. “You don’t have the constant churning in politics that can sometimes undermine the system. It allows for long-range planning and programs. It takes the politics out of local government.” Council members Valerie Cartright (DPort Jefferson Station), Jane Bonner (CRocky Point) and Kevin LaValle (R-Selden) each expressed similar sentiments when

asked if they intend to support the idea. They said having to prepare to run for office every two years hinders their ability to complete and implement projects, especially pertaining to land use, which they said can take time. “I believe there’s merit in establishing term limits and four-year terms,” Cartright said, but she intends to keep an open mind and let residents weigh in. “It lends itself to better government.” Specifically on limiting officials to three terms, LaValle said it should encourage fresh ideas and new faces stepping up to run, which he viewed as a positive, calling it a good combination both for government and residents. If these changes are approved by the board, the proposal would go to a referendum vote in November giving taxpayers the opportunity to ultimately decide the idea’s fate. It could impact the town supervisor position, each of the six council seats, superintendent of highways, town clerk and receiver of taxes starting in 2020. “I think it will be a very interesting referendum on the ballot to see what people want,” LaValle said. Bonner said she has changed her mind on term limits, saying she was among those who view Election Day as the inherent way to limit the term of a politician failing to serve their constituents. “What it will essentially do is create not just good government, but better government,” Bonner said. In January, the Town of Huntington passed similar legislation limiting all elected positions to three terms of four years each. “The town is going to be much better off,” Councilman Gene Cook (R) said upon passing the legislation. He proposed the idea to Huntington’s board in June 2017. “Elected officials have an upper hand and can be there forever. Now, we’ve sort of evened the field today. It took a long time, far too long, but I’m glad it’s done.”

Despite dangers, illegality, firework shows go on Residents prepare July Fourth at-home firework shows in Port Jefferson Station.

Editorial comment Page A22 the larger fireworks that we see today, the M-80 fireworks or the mortars that people shoot up, those are designated as explosives under New York State Labor Law.” The danger presented by misusing fireworks is real. Nationally, fireworks were identified in 12,900 hospital visits and eight deaths in 2017, according to a report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission released in June this year. Suffolk police reported that a man from Gordon Heights lost three of his fingers after a firework exploded in his hand this year. Another woman, a Florida resident who was visiting her family in Mastic, was injured after she tossed a lit cigarette in an ashtray which caused a firework that had been placed there to explode. The detonation severed the tip of one finger and injured other fingers on her right hand. Both were sent to Stony Brook University Hospital for their injuries. Dr. Steven Sandoval, medical director of Suffolk County Volunteer Firefighters Burn Center at Stony Brook University Hospital, said the last weeks of June and the first two weeks of July are the peak in terms of burn center patients. On average his unit receives five to 10 patients every Fourth of July season, and that’s not including those who arrive to the hospital with other, non-burn related injuries. By July 5 this year, the burn center received four patients who had injuries related to fireworks, but Sandoval said they would not know the total number of injuries until a month has passed. “Every other year there’s a fatal or nearfatal event that occurs from fireworks,” Sandoval said. “This is a vulnerable population, who might already be intoxicated, inebriated or have been standing out in the sun all day … people should leave fireworks to the professionals.” Those people setting off the pyrotechnic display in Port Jeff Station said they understood the hazard that fireworks presented. “We’re all organized, not drunk, professional and we have order,” Louie said. “We have communication, and communication is key.” Still, there is always danger when it comes

to explosives. The street in Port Jeff Station was bordered by power lines and trees that an off-course rocket could potentially strike. One neighbor put large towels and cardboard boxes on her fence to mitigate any potential burn damage. After the grand finale, where the group let off their last rockets and mor-

tars, they started to throw loud firecrackers into the street. One of them bounced into a neighbor’s yard right next to a fence. The firework exploded and dug a small hole an inch deep into the dirt. Despite it all, the neighbors laughed and cheered anyway.

Every Fourth of July, if only for a few hours, Long Islanders create their own stars in the night sky. If one drives down the side streets and residential neighborhoods late at night on America’s birthday, one can hear a chorus of whistles and pops from every direction. People in local neighborhoods sit in lawn chairs with their necks craned to the night sky to watch the lights flash high over their own roofs. All those involved know that, without a license, it’s illegal to own, sell and, especially, to light any fireworks in New York state, but this is Independence Day, and the date demands ceremony. On one street in Port Jefferson Station, where locals hosted their own fireworks show, the air was suffused with a burning smoke that smelled like brimstone and burning paper. Fireworks enthusiast Louie, who agreed to comment if his last name would be withheld, along with his brother and their friends, laid out rows of mortars stretching more than 10 yards down the street. For close to two hours nonstop the fireworks illuminated the sky and onlookers cheered. “Jones Beach does it, Bald Hill does it ... why can’t we do it?” Louie said. Louie said he has helped set off his block’s firework display for four years, and each July Fourth his group sets off more than $2,000 worth of fireworks. Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D) warned residents ahead of the holiday in a YouTube video that the county would be enacting a zero-tolerance policy for the possession, use and sale of illegal fireworks. “We are here today to talk about the Fourth of July and how we all love to get together and celebrate,” Bellone said in the video. “We always hear about these incidents happening and they are unnecessary, preventable injuries.” Officials asked Suffolk residents to attend licensed firework shows going on all across the Island, rather than creating their own events. There were shows at Bald Hill, in Wading River, at Peconic Riverfront in Riverhead, on East Beach in Port Jefferson, on Shelter Island and at the Long Island Ducks stadium in Bethpage, to name a few. Suffolk County is stricter on fireworks than other parts of the state. While New York passed a law in January that made owning sparklers legal, in Suffolk owning a sparkler remains a misdemeanor. Owning certain fireworks, like the M-80s, which were originally designed by the United States military to simulate gunfire, or the mortar-type of fireworks, is a Class E felony subject to up to four years in prison. Several individuals were arrested this year and charged with crimes of possessing and selling fireworks. In June, a Medford man was arrested for having $100,000 worth of fireworks in a storage facility. Later that same month, an Oakdale man was arrested for bringing $2,000 worth of fireworks home from Pennsylvania and selling them online. “We take it very seriously,” 4th Precinct Capt. Kevin Williams said at the June 1 Smithtown Town board meeting. “All fireworks are illegal, and that includes sparklers. Some of

BY SARA-MEGAN WALSH SARA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM A Nesconset man was arrested for allegedly making a terroristic threat against a campaign worker at U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin’s (R-Shirley) headquarters July 6, according to Suffolk County police. Martin Astrof was arrested Friday after he allegedly threatened to kill one of Zeldin’s supporters and those who support President Donald Trump (R). Astrof went to Zeldin’s campaign headquarters on Terry Road in Smithtown and became irate with a campaign worker, identified by Zeldin’s office as Donato Panico, at approximately 11:15 a.m., police said. After allegedly threatening to kill Panico and other supporters, Astrof backed his car up in an aggressive manner nearly striking the campaign worker, according to police. “Donato Panico is an exceptional citizen who has dedicated his life to serving our law enforcement and nation’s veterans,” Zeldin said. “He should never have been targeted like this today for his support of a political candidate.” Astrof, 75, allegedly fled the scene and was arrested a short time later in front of his home in Nesconset. He was charged with one felony count of making a terrorist threat and second-degree reckless endangerment. “In the United States of America, political scores are settled at the ballot box, not by try-

Mount Sinai schools pleased with armed security Guards say they’re settling in to posts in the district, will be brought back in September “Guns in schools.” Even to Mount Sinai Superintendent Gordon Brosdal it sounds like a foreign concept, but since March, the district has had four armed security guards stationed in all school buildings. “When you look at what’s going on around you — you can’t ignore it,” Brosdal said. “Are we going to wait around for something before it happens?” It has been a few months since the district hired its guards from Hauppaugebased Pro Protection Security Inc., and with the school year now over, those guards, such as elementary school guard John, said they have settled into a routine. “I man the hallways, make sure no unauthorized persons come in around the building, are going outside unauthorized — I check the doors, make sure they’re locked,” John said. “The students and staff see me every day — the same face — and they get used to me. I think that’s really important for what I’m here to do.” Mount Sinai School District asked that the last names of the guards and their exact locations inside the school not be disclosed. Despite the huge push for increased school security after the Feb. 14 shooting in Parkland, Florida, only four of 69 districts in Suffolk County have opted to hire armed guards — Center Moriches, Hauppauge, Miller Place and Mount Sinai — as far as TBR News Media has identified. Other districts have publicly expressed interest in the possibility, but to date those are the only three. It’s also a commitment in financial terms. Hauppauge is paying $300,000 for its contract to hire its armed security guards and Mount Sinai’s 2018-19 adopted budget included $400,000 in security funding, which was $305,000 more than the 2017-18 school year. For the last months of the 2017-18 school year, four guards stood at attention around the Mount Sinai campus, which includes the elementary, middle and high schools. Each was dressed in a clean suit with an earpiece microphone in his ear and a concealed gun at his side. Though Christopher Innace, the CEO of Pro Protection, said the important thing in hiring these guards wasn’t necessarily about the heat they were packing, but how they could interact with students. “In the case of the elementary school we wanted someone who had a bubbly personality — someone who is outgoing, is smiling — things of that nature,” Innace said. “We also train our officers to say hello, good morning and be interactive with the parents, the community and visitors. That’s just the impression we want to give.” Innace said each of the security guards is a retired police officer. Security guard Dave mans the campus gate, Paul is stationed at the high school, John serves the elementary school and helps Don at the middle school. “The kids have been excellent — they

CEO, in one of the district’s school buildings, now guarded by armed security. come up to me and shake my hand, they give me a high five,” John said. “You didn’t get that sense of it so much working [as an officer] in the city, but here it seems everyone is overwhelmingly appreciative, and it’s a nice feeling.” Innace and vice president of Pro Protection Christopher Alger both said the recruitment process for the guards in Mount Sinai was rigorous and included background checks. The district specifically didn’t look for prison guards or people that Innace called the “bouncer” type. All the guards at Mount Sinai are trained in what Innace referred to as “verbal judo,” or using speech to deescalate tense situations. In the months leading up to the final decision to hire armed guards in March, the Mount Sinai community was divided on the issue, and many remain so. Some felt the armed guards were an absolute necessity and the only way to really ensure a safe school. “I fully support it and I sleep better at night as a result of it,” Mount Sinai resident Heather Janae said. “When I pick up my elementary-aged daughter from school every day and see the armed guard standing there I am content. It’s a very sad and unfortunate need, but in my opinion, it’s a need.” Others in the community said a gun in school, no matter who was holding it,

could lead to danger and violence. “It’s a travesty — more guns is not the answer to too many guns, especially in or near our schools where there appears to be the most hideous shootings,” Mount Sinai resident Ron DiGennaro said. His daughter graduated from Mount Sinai High School in 2002. Some residents were concerned how the guards would respond to kids with mental and physical disabilities. While Brosdal said there haven’t been any problems in those cases, he said he plans to host training with the guards and the school’s special education teachers designed to teach the guards how to interact with students who have special needs. Since the Parkland shooting, security has become a greater concern for every local school district. ShorehamWading River, Smithtown and Kings Park school districts are building security vestibules in all school buildings over the summer. Smithtown is receiving unarmed security guards at the elementary schools, and the Huntington School District is replacing old doors and is hiring new security guards. Along with its armed guards, Mount Sinai is using money from its unassigned fund balance to finance renovations to the school’s perimeter fencing and replacing some of the glass fronts seen at the high school.

‘The students and staff see me every day — the same face — and they get used to me. I think that’s really imporatnt for what I’m here to do.’

— John, security guard

Alger, who himself is a retired NYPD detective first grade, said the armed guards are just a part of the four D’s of security, which are: detect, deter, deflect and defend. Cameras and staff can act as detection. Layered entrances, such as vestibules, locked doors and perimeter fencing function as deterrents. Glazed and bullet proof glass works well as deflection, but Alger said a guard capable of stopping an intruder is the only real defense against an intruder. “We’re not running away from the shooter,” Innace said. “We hear shots, we hear a commotion, we are running right to that scene. We’re running right to that shooter.” Since the beginning of 2018, 26 students have been killed in school shootings through the middle of May, according to fact checking website Politifact. Accounting for school shootings that have not resulted in any deaths, there has been roughly a shooting per week since the start of the year. Even with armed guards, Alger said there is no guarantee there will be no fatalities in the event of a shooting, but the severity of any shooting is decreased dramatically. “Armed security isn’t the 100 percent cure but it will 100 percent at least reduce some of these casualties that are taking place,” Alger said. Brosdal said he feared schools that do not take action now in hiring guards would regret it later. “It takes one shooting on Long Island, only one, and I believe you’re going to see people clamoring for armed guards,” Brosdal said, then emphasized his point. “You’ll have people clamoring.” Alger said all four guards have committed to returning to their positions at the start of the next school year in September.

‘It’s awesome to see what we had in our heads come to life.’ — Cindy Miller

Mother and daughter team open new Rocky Point boutique BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Though opening a store takes an adult mind for business, a child’s sense of creativity doesn’t hurt. Mother-and-daughter team Cindy and Maddie Miller, who is 11 years old, cut the ribbon on Macked Boutique, a new women’s and girls’ clothing shop in downtown Rocky Point June 9. “It’s amazing now to have it open and see all the people in it,” Cindy Miller said. “It’s awesome to see what we had in our heads come to life.” The front of the store is dedicated to women’s and girls’ clothes from 1-year-old to women’s plus sizes. The rear of the store is dedicated to their design space that includes stencils and paints for kids to create custom shirt designs for parties, using whatever stencil and color paint they want. For Christmas last year Miller received a Cricut — a fabric, wood and stencil cutter — from her husband, Mike Miller. After making stencils for custom designs, the mother and daughter thought about making a business out of it, first by hosting parties so kids could customize their own shirts, then later for an overall online store for young girls clothing. It wasn’t long before Miller had the idea for a brick-andmortar location, and with the new boutique, the Miller family hopes to establish themselves as a focal point for girls’ and women’s clothing in Rocky Point. Maddie came up with the idea for using glitter when painting the shirts, something that Miller said has become a big hit. “We went through a lot of learning experiences,” the mother said. “There was the time when we first put paint on the

shirt and it got paint on the table because the paint went through the shirt.” Miller’s husband, a Nassau County police officer, helped work on putting in the boutique’s new floor before the store opened. He said while his wife is stressed from all that goes into opening a new business, she is excited to see where it takes her. “She’s amazed,” Miller’s husband said. “I think it’s a new adventure, and it’s going to be very exciting.” Maddie helps the other kids when it comes to painting shirts, and she is already experienced in customer care. When one customer asked her mother where she could find the clothing sizes on a selection of shirts, Maddie stood on her tiptoes, reached up to the shirt in question and showed her each of the shirt’s sizes. “It’s cute because she’s learning a lot of about business,” Miller said. “It’s teaching her the difference between price and cost, what’s the margin, how do you price things, how do you tag things and other different applications.” Maddie has started to learn the fundamentals of operating a business from her mother. “You have to multiply [cost] by 2.5 to get the price, and the difference between what you are charged and what you sell it for,” Maddie said. Though even beyond the business aspect, Maddie said the experience of first helping the online shop and now opening a store has been fun, and that she looks forward to helping out with the business. “I like the clothes that I get to wear, and I like helping the other kids with painting,” Maddie said. “I love it – I love the boutique.”

Clockwise from top, paints and glitter available to those designing their own T-shirts at Macked Boutique in Rocky Point; Cindy and Maddie Miller stand in their newly opened shop; Maddie helps other kids design their shirts; and customers check out.

COUNTY

NYPD intelligence bureau deputy named Suffolk undersheriff BY ANTHONY PETRIELLO

SHERIFF’S OFFICE

One of New York City’s finest is bringing a wealth of experience to Suffolk County. The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office recently announced the hiring of Kevin Catalina, a 26-year veteran of the New York City Police Department, as Sheriff Errol Toulon Jr.’s (D) new undersheriff, the department’s second in command. As of Aug. 1, Catalina, 51, will get started in the position, joining current Undersheriff Steve Kuehhas, who was appointed to the post by Toulon’s predecessor Sheriff Vincent DeMarco (R) and will continue serving in that role. Catalina was born and raised in Sayville, graduated from Sayville High School and has lived on Long Island his entire life. Toulon spoke highly of Catalina and said he is optimistic about the value he can add to the department. “During my six months in office, I was searching for the very best talent to help me lead the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office into the future, and we are very fortunate that Kevin has accepted the position of undersheriff,” Toulon said in a statement. He is a resident of Long Island and knows our communities well, but he also brings a high level of expertise from the NYPD that will help drive innovation and reduce crime in Suffolk County.” Catalina has a vast and varied history with the NYPD, having served in many

Charles (Chick) Carter, 87, of Miller Place died at his home July 1. The son of Philip S. and Katharine B., he was born and raised in Port Jefferson, where he spent many happy years paddling his kayak, sailing in his dad’s sailboat, participating in Boy Scouts and camping by the sand dunes at the end of the harbor. He graduated from Port Jefferson High School in 1950 and received degrees from Buffalo State Teachers’ College, Adelphi and New York University. He married his high school sweetheart, Jane Davis from Miller Place, and they recently celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary. Chick started teaching in the Sachem school district before the first high school was constructed. Later, he became involved in vocational education and for many years was an administrator with Nassau BOCES. Charles was active in many organizations — Long Island Seaport & Ecology Center, The International Wood Collectors’ Society, The Model A Ford Club of Long Island and was a trustee of the Mount Sinai Congregational Church for 18 years. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his daughters Susan Carter (Art), Ann Carter and Sharon Bastian (Bruce); grandchildren Jennifer Bianchi (Paul), Dan Goodman (Pat), Kara Overton (Matthew), Jesse Kirk and Casey Kirk

SPORTS DESIREE KEEGAN

Clockwise from top left, Suffolk’s allstars walk off the field; Dave Argenzio crosses home; Argenzio congratulates a fellow all-star; Ed Carney takes a swing; Tim Rocklein makes contact; and Suffolk celebrates a big play.

Suffolk seniors best Nassau on softball field BY DESIRÉE KEEGAN

The fireworks came a day late for a group of Suffolk senior softball players. A thriller ensued in a battle between some of Long Island’s best 65 and older softball players. Down 7-6 in the bottom of the ninth inning, Tim Rocklein smacked a pitch to right field with runners on first and second with no outs, and Ed Carney hit a sacrifice fly to score Dave Argenzio in a walk-off, 8-7 thriller as Suffolk edged Nassau in the first-ever Super Seniors AllStar game July 5. “It got closer and closer, and why get a lead early when you can get the lead and go home?” head coach Paul Killian said, laughing. “I was losing so much sleep afraid that, A, it was going to rain, and, B, it wouldn’t’ turn out right. I couldn’t be happier with the way it ended.” Rocklein’s game-tying single served as a bit of redemption. The Islip Terrace resident had made back-to-back errors in a four-run second inning for Nassau. “It’s really wonderful how the team came through at the end,” said Rocklein, a former student of Killian’s at St. John the Baptist Diocesan High School in West Islip. “It was a team effort. We all won.” The Suffolk offensive onslaught was contagious. Down 6-1 heading into the bottom of the seventh, base hits by John Carmichael and Carney set up an RBI-single for Louis Re. Later in the inning, Mike Cavanagh hit an in-the-park bases-clearing home run to pull Suffolk within one, 6-5.

“We were just hoping to be competitive,” Cavanagh said. “I flew out the first two times, so it felt great to come through with a hit.” Rocklein said he saw the hit a bit differently. “You could feel everyone’s spirits go from 20 to 190,” he said, grinning from ear to ear. “It’s an emotional game. We didn’t give up. We were all there for each other, and in the end, we prevailed.” Assistant coach Victor Scalone, of Sound Beach, said he was impressed by his team, especially considering the Nassau team had three more full league teams to choose from when assembling its AllStar roster. Suffolk pulled off three double plays, with middle infielder Fred Taal helping turn two of them to John Petraglia at first. Catcher Tony Laino, who led off the bottom of the ninth with a single, helped complete the other, which ended a Nassau scoring threat. Tom Gomez went the distance on the mound, also collecting two hits. “We’re all older players, and we just wanted to look respectable in this game,” Scalone said. “We’ll be talking about this for a long time.” The assistant coach pointed to the home run by Cavanagh as having ignited the team. Killian, a Holbrook resident, said he’s in awe of what the sport can do for him and his players. “I feel like I’m 16 again,” he said. “The fireworks were a day delayed, but they’re here.”

OPINION Editorial

Letters to the editor GREG CATALANO

More enforcement needed with fireworks The Fourth of July may be over but, as many Long Islanders know, the firework shows have just begun. Despite New York State and Suffolk County laws prohibiting the use of pyrotechnics without a license, and a recent declaration by Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (D) of a zero-tolerance policy on fireworks, many residents get a hold of them and use them anyway on and around the holiday. We’ve all been there. The Fourth of July falls on a weekday, we have to work the next day and out of nowhere ... BOOM, a whistle and the sky lights up. The displays go on for hours even though we don’t live near a venue that has hired the Gruccis. On random summer nights, unexpected fireworks wake babies up and upset pets at the most inconvenient times. Recently, the county banned sparkling devices — sparklers and fountains — despite the state deeming them legal. The change left us wondering how Suffolk officials can impose a new law when all summer long it’s apparent that prior laws prohibiting fireworks from being purchased or used by individuals in their neighborhoods aren’t enforced. Firecrackers, ground spinners, Roman candles, bottle rockets, cherry bombs and more have become summer staples. There are many reasons besides being a public nuisance that the laws need to be enforced. Untrained individuals using fireworks put themselves in harm’s way, as local hospital emergency rooms fill up with those with burned or missing fingers or damaged eyes. There are plenty of people who are minding their own business in their backyard when they get hit with the ash of fireworks or pyrotechnics destroy property by landing on roofs, leaving holes in lawns or burnt marks on fences. There are also veterans who, when they hear fireworks, are reminded of traumatic memories of fighting on battlefields with gunfire and bombs going off around them. Many who have served in the military suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, something firework aficionados need to be mindful of should a neighbor be afflicted. While some who suffer from PTSD alert their neighbors by posting signs on their lawns asking for their consideration, should it really be their responsibility? Before Suffolk tries to stop people from holding a stick that sparkles, police officers need to enforce the laws that are already on the books. The warnings about zero tolerance sound great, but as a TBR News Media reporter sent out July Fourth to get a feel for the breadth of illegal fireworks in the community can attest, the skies were lit up far and wide. Considering the penalty fees attached to illegal use of fireworks — up to $500 for the use of just a sparkling device — the county could rake in a nice amount of money if they cracked down, not just on the Fourth of July but year round. Residents can play a part in protecting their fellow citizens, too. Don’t be afraid to speak up when you see a police car in your neighborhood after hearing or seeing fireworks. Or, before it gets to that point, talk with your friends and family who may be setting off fireworks at home and tell them it isn’t the best idea. To be clear: We’re not against having a good time and fully embracing the celebration of our country’s independence. But fireworks belong in the hands of professionals, not in the mitts of your average citizen two doors down.

Proud to be on Zeldin enemies list On June 28, a rally was held at the Smithtown Elks Club for Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin. Registration was open to anyone who filled out the necessary online forms and verification was emailed back. However, arriving as a verified attendee, at the scheduled event and going through two ID posts, I was surrounded by three security men and told that I needed to leave the premises immediately. They said that I would be arrested if I did not comply and not to cause any trouble. They escorted me to another security man outside the venue who repeated what the previous Zeldin security

agents had already said. This happened to two other people who had also filled out the necessary online forms to attend. As reported in the July 5 edition of The Times of Smithtown, Susan Perretti, a member of the North Country Peace Group, who did attend the rally, began questioning the “hate” speech made by former advisers of the president. She was threatened with arrest and removed. What kind of list does Zeldin have? What reasons are his constituents being targeted? Who else is on this list? What also occurred is that two members of the press were ejected once inside the

rally. They both had the proper press credentials issued by the Zeldin campaign. We should all be outraged by how our free press institutions were treated. This is a tactic taken right out of the Trump playbook, and Zeldin and his handlers will most likely use it again as the campaign moves ahead and the accessibility to our congressman is diminished even more. To be on Zeldin’s “trouble-maker enemies list” is something I am very proud of. Democracy is being threatened by the actions of our congressman in the 1st Congressional District.

Encouraging first-time voters I have a first-time voter in my household which is very exciting. She will be given a voice in our democratic process this year. The 2014 midterm election saw the lowest turnout in our country since World War II. It is important to help our young people understand the responsibility that comes with this right. They might need some guidance in the process. I would ask them: “Have you registered to vote?” If not, you can do that at the website www.suffolkvotes.com. Will you be home on Nov. 6 or away at college? An absentee ballot can be requested at the same website.

What issues are important to you, gun control, the environment, higher education? Help the young people gather information. If they are not comfortable calling the offices of those running for office, make the call together with the phone on speaker and ask those currently in office who are requesting another term, what they are actively doing regarding these issues. In the 1st Congressional District, U. S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R) can be reached at 631-2094235 (Riverhead office); 631289-1097 (Patchogue office); or 202-225-3826 (Washington,

D.C., office). Ask those seeking office what they plan to do on these issues. Perry Gershon, Democratic candidate for 1st Congressional District, can be reached at 631438-1099. The next generation of voters should understand that politicians represent and work for them, and that they have a right and a responsibility to decide for themselves who is the best person for the job. Please pass this information to any teenager and young adult that you know.

Speak up to support Rails to Trails As a member of Friends of the Greenway, specifically Setauket to Port Jefferson Station, I am asking if you would write an email to Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker in support of the proposed Rails to Trails Greenway project just east of our trail. On July 17 at 9:30 a.m., the Suffolk County Legislature will be holding a public comment portion of their meeting in Hauppauge. Your support by writing her an email prior to that meeting will help toward encouraging the North Shore of Brookhaven greenways, just like our trail. Make your voice heard

by sending an email to sarah. anker@suffolkcountyny.gov or by going to the July 17 meeting and signing up to speak. The county will need to bond the funding of $500,000 in order to obtain the more-than $10 million in federal grants approved for the project, according to Anker. This project will bring construction work to our region and another 10-plus miles of greenway for us and others to enjoy safely, versus riding/walking next to Route 25A. We, as Friends of the Greenway, know how well used and appreciated our 3 1/2 mile trail is in our

communities. Let’s support these five communities to also have that joy. Please act today to either write your support or come to the July 17 meeting to speak in person. Our trail took that type of support more than 15 years ago and we should help this group, too, in creating another greenway along the old Long Island Rail Road right of way.

OPINION

Giving Trump ‘credit’ for cleaning up EPA mess

T

he president of the United States is taking full credit for the relief those crazy leftist environmental groups are feeling in response to the resignation of the latest misunderstood and much maligned member of his cabinet, Scott Pruitt. You see, President Donald Trump knew that Pruitt would do his bidding, gutting unnecessary government regulations designed to protect the water, air and food that Americans and, indeed, others on the planet need on basis. By Daniel Dunaief a daily He knew Pruitt would do everything he asked, and more. It’s like the old Stalin philosophy. You remember that ruthless Soviet Union dictator,

D. None of the above

right? He never wanted any of his tank commanders to be too powerful because he didn’t want their leader taking over. So, he chose Pruitt knowing that he’d do what Trump wanted and then would become so enmeshed in the world he tried to help — lobbyists, coal interests, insecticide manufacturers — that he would eventually cause harm to himself and his political aspirations. Trump is, rightfully, taking full credit for the resignation of a man he supported when it was expedient to do so and that he needed to cut loose when the combination of foibles and follies entered the public realm. Sure, some nasty journalists may have quoted unnamed sources who shared questionable details about Pruitt’s spending habits, his requests for football tickets, his security detail and his desire to get his wife a job. Ultimately, it was Trump who made the call, putting the thorn in the side of the environmental groups

and then pulling it out ever so quickly and gracefully. Well, maybe it wasn’t all that quick. Pruitt lasted far longer in Washington than even members of the “Trump Party” — that’s the new name of the group formerly known as the Republican Party — might have wanted. But, hey, the more people who found Pruitt’s actions and decisions questionable, the greater the relief when he was finally removed from office. OK, so technically the guy resigned, which means he walked out of the seat of power and into an enormous gas-guzzling sport utility vehicle. But, seriously, does anyone believe Pruitt thought he blew it on his own? No, no, people, wake up. News that the environmental groups all thought was good because they imagined that the EPA might return to its mandate of protecting the environment and the people, animals and trees living here came courtesy of His Truly: President Trump.

Yes, of course, you can thank him for taking nuclear weapons out of the hands of the North Koreans, and you can express your appreciation for the incredibly kind way he pulled back from a zero-tolerance policy he established because of laws the Democrats won’t fix, but don’t forget to give credit where credit is due. You see, if the president had never tapped Pruitt, who built his career attacking the henhouse that was the EPA from his home in Oklahoma, the greenie groups would never be able to celebrate his removal. No, it’s a total credit to Trump that the reality TV show that was the Pruitt era at the EPA has been canceled. So, take your time, think of the right words and make sure to thank the man in charge of the world for choosing the right man at the right time and then letting that man walk off into a sunset enhanced by all the pollution-generated particulates he helped put there.

Moe Berg: ‘I’d rather be a ballplayer than a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court’

H

is life makes for a fascinating story even if the current spy movie is mediocre. “The Catcher Was a Spy,” tells of Morris “Moe” Berg, baseball player, and his remarkable intelligence and exploits, especially during World War II. Born in Harlem, not far from the Polo Grounds, home of the New York Giants, Berg began playing baseball at age 7. He was to be called “the brainiest guy in baseball,” and Casey Stengel, a baseball player and manager who was something of an eccentric himself, referred to him as “the strangest man ever to play baseball.” By Leah S. Dunaief Berg’s story, captured in Nicholas Dawidoff’s 1994 book of similar title, is also the story of the times in America in which he lived. Born in 1902, he begged to go to school at age 3 1/2. The third and

youngest child of a pharmacist and a homemaker, Berg graduated from high school at 16, then Princeton magna cum laude in 1923, as an outstanding scholar-athlete playing baseball all along the way. He also grew up as an outsider, marginalized there because of modest finances and as a Jew at a time of deep bigotry. He majored in modern languages and spoke some half-a-dozen fluently, including eventually Japanese. Upon graduation, Berg was signed to a contract by the Brooklyn Robins, soon to become the Brooklyn Dodgers and he seemed to be just so-so at bat but a good clutch hitter with a strong and accurate arm in the infield. After that first season, Berg traveled to Paris, where he enrolled at the Sorbonne and read several newspapers each day. By January 1924, Berg was not thinking of going back to spring training to develop himself as a hitter but rather found the idea of travel irresistible and went on to tour Switzerland and Italy. When he finally did return to the United States, he was optioned off to the Minneapolis Millers of the American Association minor league. He was to play for four

American League teams throughout his baseball career, primarily as a catcher, ending with the Boston Red Sox as player and then coach in 1941. “Good field, no hit,” was how Dodgers scout Mike González, characterized him. Berg distinguished himself for his putouts stealing percentage, double plays by a catcher and assists by a catcher. However, throughout his baseball life, which he so clearly loved, he was a true Renaissance man. In between seasons, and sometimes missing the first couple of months of the new season, he studied law at Columbia University, passing the bar in 1929 and finally earning his Bachelor of Laws degree in 1930. Interestingly, he was sent with Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and a handful of other all-stars to play exhibition games with the Japanese in 1934 — Berg’s second trip there. Although certainly not of their star caliber, he spoke the language and was probably included on the squad for that reason. While in Tokyo, he donned a kimono and pretended to bring flowers to the American ambassador’s daughter, who was a patient in the Tokyo hospital. He went up to the roof instead, and from the top of one of the

tallest buildings he used his 16-mm Bell & Howell camera that he had concealed in the folds of his garb to film the city and harbor. He never did visit the daughter but he did provide American intelligence with rare and invaluable footage later on. He supposedly did this in anticipation of the war that he was sure, from his various readings and Far East travel, was coming. He went on to join the Office of Strategic Services, later the CIA; was parachuted into occupied Yugoslavia evaluating which resistance groups should get U.S. support — he chose Tito’s group; and became involved in the frenzied effort to determine if the German scientist Werner Heisenberg was close to developing the atomic bomb with orders to assassinate him if so — Berg decided not. Otherwise, he was of immense value to the U.S. as he moved throughout Europe in his dangerous and exciting life. The former ballplayer turned down the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor to the war effort, during his lifetime but the medal was awarded posthumously. In American history he is a mysterious footnote.
