Mount Sinai business owner plans walk to NYC to help quad rugby team BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM With his 68th birthday on the horizon, Alan Ghidaleson, founder and owner of Feasts for Beasts in Mount Sinai, decided he wanted to do something to help others. After talking with a business associate, the Setauket resident decided to take on a 68-mile trek to New York City on foot to help those who can’t walk. Ghidaleson said one day while he was talking to his insurance agent Mark Legaspi, he was inspired to raise money for the New York Warriors Wheelchair Rugby team. The squad, made up of quadriplegics, play quad rugby competitively at Stony Brook University and in New Jersey. Legaspi is the New York

state chairman of Easterseals, a nonprofit that provides services to those with disabilities. He told Ghidaleson about the Warriors, which the nonprofit sponsors and helps. Legaspi said it’s exciting to hear when someone wants to donate their time to help others. “Alan’s drive to help is tremendous,” Legaspi said. “He always goes out of the way to help people.” With his 68th birthday on Oct. 3, the pet supply store owner decided to walk to New York City. His hope is that his fellow North Shore residents he passes along the way will support the cause by donating. All the funds collected will go toward the New York Warriors to maintain their equipment. Ghidaleson said he plans to leave Oct. 1 or 2, depending on the weather, and he estimates the walk could take around 28 hours, also based on weather and road conditions. The business owner has already mapped out the trip. He will leave his home in Setauket, walk along Route 347 until it merges with 454 and then Route 25 in Commack. From there he will take Route 25 and pass towns such as Dix Hills, Woodbury, Syosset and Jericho. When he reaches New Hyde Park, he will walk along New Hyde Park Road to Route 25A and then take that west to the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge. He plans to end

his walking journey at the Whiskey Tavern at 79 Baxter St. in Manhattan. Ghidaleson said he thought long and hard about safety when he mapped out his trip. One of the reasons he ruled out Route 25 in Smithtown is due to a stretch of the road west of the Bull statue where there is no shoulder to walk. He also found that Route 25A would be longer mileagewise while not having as many businesses and restaurants as Route 25 does. While the Setauket resident doesn’t walk regularly, he said he does work out. He has already taken some practice walks, building from eight to 13 miles, and he said he recently finished a personal best of 32. He has a 40-mile walk planned before the big day. “Once I do 40, then I’ll be prepared to do the distance,” he said. Ghidaleson said he plans to celebrate the end of the walk at the Whiskey Tavern with his wife Diane, son Todd and his wife Cassie and his daughter Jenna and her boyfriend Mike. The business owner said they weren’t surprised when he told them what he had planned. “I like doing challenges,” Ghidaleson said. “I like doing things that physically are demanding, and I like helping people. So, it’s a good combination.”

Darren Templeton, a member of the New York Warriors, said a couple of his teammates are also hoping to greet Ghidaleson at the end of the walk and met him recently when he traveled from Setauket to Hackensack, New Jersey, to see one of their games. Those who are interested in donating to the walk can make checks payable to Eastern Wheelchair Athletes’ Foundation and mailed to the organization at 18 Strong Drive, Kinnelon, NJ 07405, or dropped off at Feasts for Beasts, 45 Route 25A, Mount Sinai.

Locals advocate for better environmental practices BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Millions of people around the world demanded action from world leaders on climate change as part of the Global Climate Strike Sept. 20. The protests have put the ongoing crisis back in the forefront. Recently, New York lawmakers aimed to tackle the climate change issue head on, as they passed the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, a bill that will aggressively target greenhouse gas emissions in the state. On Long Island, there are plans for two offshore wind projects, located off the East End and South Shore. The wind farms will provide close to 1,700 megawatts of energy, and are expected to power more than 1 million homes. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has mandated 9,000 MW of offshore wind capacity by 2035. While those goals are in the distant future, there are still things the average person can do on their own to help in the fight against climate change and environmental degradation. “It all comes to educating people and making sure they are aware of these issues,” said Melanie Gonzalez, owner of Simple Good at 35 Chandler

Square in Port Jefferson which offers a number of sustainable and zero waste items. Gonzalez said the inspiration for the store came after buying plastic toys for years for her son, Julian, when she noticed the toys would break easily and she was left with tons of plastic packaging. “I was like, ‘What happens to all this plastic and where does it go?’” she said. “I was totally ignorant ... but once I learned the facts [on plastic waste], it was life changing.” Since then, Gonzalez has been an advocate of reducing plastic waste and protecting the environment. She believes Long Island has moved in the right direction on climate change and plastic reduction, but it may also come down to changing people’s habits and behaviors. The Rocky Point resident said it could be as simple as switching your plastic toothbrush with alternative that is made out of bamboo, which is more cost effective and in turn better for the environment. Gonzalez said everybody should avoid single-use plastic items and recommended using your own utensils when ordering takeout food. She also spoke on the importance of composting and recycling. “People are frustrated about recycling,” she

said. “Long Island isn’t the easiest place to recycle.” Last year, the towns of Brookhaven, Smithtown and Huntington had a rude awakening about their recycling practices when China announced it would cut its intake of U.S. recyclables by a huge margin. Municipalities across the nation were affected. In just one example, Brookhaven Town has moved back to asking residents to separate their garbage. Gonzalez said she remains optimistic that the climate change movement on the Island is on the right track. Simple Good in Port Jefferson offers zero waste and sustainable Elisabeth Van Roijen, vice president of products.

more to do to curb e-cigarette use and vaping, pointing to the ubiquitous e-cigarette product Juul as another concern. “One Juul pod is equivalent to smoking a pack of cigarettes,” he said. “You have kids smoking two or three of these pods.” The legislator also mentioned that there are a number of loopholes on the state and federal level that he feels still need to be addressed. There has been an increase in use of e-cigarettes in middle and high school students in recent years. Port Jefferson School District in particular is hosting a vape seminar at its next school board meeting Oct. 15. District officials are hopeful that the ban prevents further teens from thinking of vaping. “Any step in the right direction is a good step,” said Paul Casciano, superintendent of the Port Jefferson School District. “Unfortunately, people, including teens, were duped into believing that vaping was a safe alternative to smoking. There is still much more to be done including discussions about peer pressure and the fear of not fitting into a group.” Casciano said the district has provided information and held numerous presentations on vaping for students and parents. Last December, the district took part in a county pilot program called Vape Out where high school students watched a presentation on the health hazards of vaping and were given advice on how to refuse a hit. They then shared the lessons they learned with other

classmates and students in the middle school. “No singular program or curriculum is going to eliminate vaping among teens however constant and consistent messages from many voices may begin to stem the tide.” Casciano said. Vape shop and small business owners have long been opposed to legislation on the sale of e-cigarettes. Back in December 2018, at a public hearing to discuss legislation that would have banned the sale of flavored e-cigarettes in Suffolk County, owners said the issue isn’t the flavors but rather an issue of access and enforcement of the sale of tobacco products to individuals over the age of 21. Alex Patel, owner of the Rocky Point Smoke

Officials laud New York’s flavored e-cig ban, some call it not enough BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM As a New York State ban on flavored e-cigarettes goes into effect Oct. 4, community members and officials on Long Island are hopeful that this will be a good first step in curbing youth smoking. The ban comes in the wake of several deaths experts have linked to e-cigarettes. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 450 cases of lung illness nationwide have been associated with e-cigarette products containing nicotine or THC. A number of those cases have occurred on Long Island. Suffolk County Legislator William “Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport) said he believes the ban is a great first step in limiting access of addictive products to young people. “I think [the ban] is wonderful news,” he said. “We have seen a disturbing trend, we know this stuff is not good for you.” Spencer cautioned that they have to be prepared for the unintended consequences of such a ban, particularly he said he wants to make sure that there are support systems and resources available to addicted individuals who may seek help. “I want to make sure there are plans for parents who may have a child who is addicted [to e-cigarettes],” he said. “I will be working with the health department on a plan to deal with this.” Despite the ban, Spencer believes there’s

and Vape Shop, is concerned about the looming ban on flavored e-cigarettes as it is a popular item purchased at these vape shops. “Of course, it is going to affect our business,” he said. “We could close down.” Dr. Rachel Boykan, clinical associate professor of pediatrics at Stony Brook Medicine, said while she is supportive of the new ban, she thought it would be better if it included menthol. “We know that youth are attracted to these products because of the flavors; this should decrease their appeal,” she said. In addition, Boykan mentioned some ideas to E-CIGARETTES Continued on A6

further curb youth smoking. “We need to regulate advertising, which teens respond strongly to and which is ubiquitous and unregulated, compared with advertising of cigarettes, which is restricted,” she said. “We need to decrease availability by including e-cigarettes in Tobacco 21 legislation ... include e-cigs in the same indoor air laws as combusted tobacco.” Boykan said she and her colleagues have dealt with many children who vape and they try

to educate them on the harm associated with it. “We try to educate them about the risks of the flavorings and heavy metals such as copper, in the aerosol, and the recent severe lung illnesses and deaths — which we don’t yet understand,” she said. The professor provided some advice to parents if they think their child may be vaping. “They may smell a fruity smell, they may notice signs of nicotine addiction such as agitation, anxiety, or if they are using marijuana as well,” she said. “The best approach is to establish trust, ask without judgment and be supportive if a child admits to having a nicotine addiction — and take them to their pediatrician for help.”

Port Jefferson bar cited for selling alcohol to minors A Port Jefferson bar has come under heavy scrutiny over allegedly providing alcohol to children underage. Suffolk County Police said they have investigated Portside Bar & Grill, located at 252 East Main St., in response to community complaints. Working with the New York State Liquor Authority, the investigation led to the arrest of Christopher Chernis, 34, of Holbrook on Saturday, Sept. 21. He was charged with unlawfully

dealing with a child in the first degree and was issued a field appearance ticket. Police said they do not release information on the nature of community complaints made to SCPD. The owners of the bar were also cited for numerous Alcohol and Beverage Control law violations by the State Liquor Authority, according to police.

Your turn: Thanking those who’ve made Heritage Park what it is BY FRED DREWES DESK@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Heritage Park opened in the fall of 2004 and was an immediate “home run.” Organizations, local businesses, volunteers, donors — the Heritage Trust and the Town of Brookhaven have enhanced the park with landscaping, passive and active recreation while maintaining a sense of openness, neighborliness and security. Hundreds of people have taken “ownership” over the past 19 years and thousands from near and far visit The Wedge, as the park has been known in the past. I would like to personally thank and recognize many who have helped. However, I don’t know everyone who has helped, and no doubt omitted many. For this I apologize. Campani and Schwarting Architects garner applause for their assistance and involvement in planning the design of Heritage Park and the Heritage Center. Their presence and presentations at meetings added creditability to the proposal created by Mount Sinai Civic Association and Heritage Trust. Koch Tree Services has donated and planted trees along the parking lot, central path and the Avenue of America on the east side of the park. Homestyle Landscaping also joined this effort as well as donating equipment to make the planting of the daffodil Smiley Face easier and landscaped the islands of Mount Sinai-Coram Road. The Christmas tree was another Koch donation as well as the yearly hanging of lights to brighten the Christmas season. Kunz Greenhouse donated a 35-foot-tall dawn redwood and Koch Tree Services arranged the transplanting of the tree from Port Jefferson Station to the park. Kelly Brothers donated the materials and skills to construct the stone work at the corner of Route 25A and Mount Sinai-Coram Road with accompanying landscaping as well as the stone columns at the entry and exit to the park. Kelly Brothers also planted the trees between the playground and shack and donated the pavers used in the playground. These pavers were placed thanks to the donation of

skills and labor of Frank Vignola and DeRosa & Sons Masons. AquaFX/Outdoor Living donated the landscaping and putting green near The Shack and water feature at the Heritage Center. Both of these are points of interest on the 0.7-mile perimeter walk. Next to the putting green is the kid’s maze designed and organized by the Mount Sinai Garden Club. The sign at the entry of the maze lists 13 contributors involved in developing it. Hessler Construction Company built the corn crib and the Arena family cut stencils of cobs and stenciled a folk art storage shed for the flags flow during the Parade of American Flags. Echo Landscaping helped establish the Garden Club’s perennial garden. Donations of money, skills, materials, machines and implements established and constructed the Old Man’s Farm exhibit, the displays in the Heritage Center’s lobby, the perennial and pollinator gardens, Heritage Planet walk, Avenue of America bald eagle sign post, avenue pavers, presidential blocks and branches of government seals mounted on columns and the four milestones engraved with distances around the perimeter path. DeLea Sod Farms has donated mulch for landscaping projects and deep chisel plowed and hydro-seeded the east side of the Avenue of America for a bargain price.

Town of Brookhaven take place on fields. Open space is dotted and fringed with landscaping thanks to town workers along with Heritage Trust staff and volunteers. The challenge of the future is to maintain and enhance the Heritage Park and Center while sustaining the sense of openness, neighborliness and security. I hope this happens for the sake of seven generations to come. Enjoy Heritage Park, aka The Wedge, and I ask, “What can you do for the park?” Fred Drewes is a longtime volunteer and coordinator at Heritage Park.

SWR educators work to have student experiments sent up to space

Shoreham-Wading River school district educators are collaborating on an opportunity for students in the district looking to reach for the stars. The initiative — Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) — is provided by the National Center for Earth and Space

Science Education. The educational endeavor will have the students work in small teams to design experiments that, if chosen by SSEP, will be conducted in microgravity aboard the International Space Station. The teachers were recently trained in mis-

Miller Place musicians to belt out jazz in Suffolk all county ensemble Miller Place North Country Road Middle School announced six musicians were being offered positions in the Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association (SCMEA) All-County Jazz Ensemble. “The district is immensely proud of these students for putting forth the work and effort to earn a spot in this esteemed organization,” said Superintendent Marianne Cartisano. “By encouraging students to become involved outside of the classroom and to further pursue their passions, the district hopes to instill a sense of independence in the students, as well as a level of self-confidence.” To audition for the SCMEA students are given a composition

to rehearse and learn, performing it in front of a set of judges who evaluate each participant based on skill and ability to read music. Those who qualify to move on are instructed to become familiar with the pieces selected for the performance. Shortly before the day of their performance the ensemble rehearses as a group for the first time. This year the young jazz musicians will be performing Nov. 2. Miller Place’s All-County Jazz Ensemble participants this year are Nick Vallary on saxophone, Michael Drago with his trumpet, Evelyn Paul on trumpet, Wyatt Shattes on trumpet, Carrie Davis with low brass and Noah Samonas on low brass.

Rocky Point special education teacher lauded for decades of dedication After 33 years in the Rocky Point school district, special education teacher Cheryl Fusco was recognized for her service and dedication to the students and community at the Sept. 16 board of education meeting. “Mrs. Fusco was a leader in the building, sharing her expertise as a Wilson Funda-

tions coach and special education mentor to teachers for over 20 years,” Frank J. Carasiti Elementary School Principal Virginia Gibbons said. “Our students have benefited greatly under her guidance and compassion. Mrs. Fusco’s legacy will be evident long after she retires.”

SWR head coach reinstated BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Shoreham-Wading River School District announced it is putting its top coach back on the field. In an email release, Superintendent Gerard Poole said they would be reinstating Aden Smith as the head coach of the varsity football team starting Sept. 23. “The district has decided to reinstate the varsity football team’s head coach, effective Sept. 23,” Poole said in a statement. “We are proud of our team which is off to a great start this year. We thank the assistant coaches who stepped up to lead the team until now, and we look forward to a continued great season.” Smith was removed from his position after an alleged incident during a preseason multiteam scrimmage at Islip High School. Players got involved in what was described as a “scuffle,” and coach Smith allegedly became involved. At a school board meeting Sept. 13 nearly the entire football team showed up in their jerseys to support the coach, saying his only intent was to defend his players. “That day of the scuffle, he did nothing but stand up for his players,” team captain and quarterback Xavier Arline said during the board meeting. “If a scuffle is going to happen, we rely on our coach — we expect our coach to come to the rescue. If we can’t count on him, who can we count on?” Smith, a teacher in the Longwood School District, did not respond to email requests for comment. While Smith was removed, the two assistant coaches took up the task of running the team, leading them to two convincing wins against Bayport-Blue Point and Port Jefferson. With the reinstatement date set for Sept. 23, Smith was forced to miss the third game of the season against Southampton, which took place Sept. 20. Smith will retake the field Sept. 27 at home in a game against Elwood-John Glenn. Game time is set for 6 p.m.

Rocky Point shuts out Amityville 35-0 in homecoming victory Despite three Rocky Point touchdowns being called back on offensive penalties, the Eagles hammered visiting Amityville in a 35-0 shutout victory at their annual homecoming game Sept. 21. Rocky Point running back Devin Cline led his

team when he powered his way to the endzone on three seperate occasions as the junior carried the ball 15 times covering 170 yards. Quarterback Gavin Davanzo threw for 34 yards on six attempts and found the endzone on a 1-yard run. Matt Sweeney, a junior, punched into the endzone from short yardage while junior Sean Bernhard was perfect on the day splitting the uprights five times.

The win lifts Rocky Point to 2-0 where they blanked Miller Place last week. The Eagle defensive lineup has yet to allow any points against them. Rocky Point is back in action when they travel to Eastport/South Manor Sept. 28. Game time is at 2 p.m. Photos left to right: Rocky Point running

back Jack Meyers bolts toward the endzone pylon; linebacker #45 Devin Cline equally dangerous on either side of the line of scrimmage takes down an Amityville runner; Sean Bernhard splits the uprights for the PAT for Rocky Point who was a perfect 5 for 5 on the day; quarterback Gavin Davanzo rolls to his right as he spots senior wide receiver Al Sessa.

Editorial

Letters to the Editor

Paying attention to What our democracy needs and deserves local elections Long Island residents bear a tremendous tax burden. So, when the editorial staff at TBR News Media report low voter turnouts for local elections, we are constantly puzzled. Why are people not voting? A recent example is the Sept. 10 special election in the Setauket Fire District where commissioners were looking for the go-ahead to buy four new pumper trucks. While the vote wasn’t one that would immediately result in higher taxes like a bond vote, the district was still looking for the community’s approval to spend approximately $2.5 million. The vote was a meager 8565 for the new trucks. With over 11,000 voting age residents in the fire district, where was everybody that Tuesday? In comparison, on Sept. 18, Emma S. Clark Memorial Library in Setauket saw 416 residents approve its budget and 61 voting “no.” While not a huge turnout, more people showed up to cast their votes. Looking at board of education votes in North Shore communities, the turnouts seem only marginally higher. Considering school budgets can be a big hit to taxes, why do so many people miss out on casting their votes? In 2019, for example, the Miller Place School District proposed a $74 million budget, an $1.2 million increase from the previous year. Only 783 residents turned out to vote. The hamlet may be small compared to other districts in our area, but according to the 2010 census, more than 12,000 people live there. Again, where was everyone? When it comes to elections, whether for a fire or school district or library, entities are required by law to post legal notices in their local newspapers, which they do. And while they are not legally obligated to, many send out letters and include information in their newsletters and on their websites, and spread the word through social media. Plus, many school districts and libraries hold events to go over budgets with the community, though the meetings tend to be not well-attended by residents. The current system and practices seem inadequate. It may be time for elected officials to look into the possibility of combining all such votes on one day, either in November or on primary day. If that’s not possible, due to fire district boundaries being different to those of school districts, then maybe legislators can set up funds to help fire districts, schools and libraries cover costs to better advertise elections. With the most recent Setauket Fire District vote, no letters were sent out, due to cost. Under the current arrangement, entities have more incentive not to promote elections, since low voter turnout often means a proposal is more likely to be approved by the few people in the know. Perhaps it’s time to institute a requirement: A certain percentage of residents must vote before a referendum can become official. But the onus must also fall on the electorate as well as the government entities organizing an election. So, in the meantime: Vote! It’s the only way to be sure your voice is heard.

This is in response to Mr. Esopa’s letter to the editor in your Sept. 19 edition (“God help America”). The only thing I can agree with in his opinion is the title. I do agree that our country and our democracy need help, but not for the reasons he lists. I am not sure where he gets his information from, but it certainly does not come from any verified facts. The Democratic Party has never said, nor have they even alluded to “open borders,” or “free everything for illegal immigrants.” This is Republican President Donald Trump’s diatribe and twisting of facts to meet his agenda. Nor have the Democrats ever said to take away our freedom to bear arms —

they have instead spoken about ways to at least control the constant onslaught of mass killings. Climate change is real and is a threat to our country and the world. It may not have an effect on Mr. Esopa, but it will be for the next generation. The Green Movement never, ever suggested the “removal of all cars, trains and planes.” Again, this is an example of Trump’s diatribe and twisting of facts, or the spouting of just plain falsehoods, e.g., windmills cause cancer. As for the First Amendment, if there is any threat to the freedom of speech, it is Trump’s attempts to denigrate and misrepresent what the press actually

does to protect our democracy. If anything, he is trying to stifle free speech so only the stories he likes are the ones that people see. I am neither a Democrat nor Republican. I try to educate myself to make the best possible choices in any election regardless of party affiliation. With the coming of the next presidential election, I suggest we all look beyond the mere headlines and which party we tend to align ourselves with and actually make informed decisions. That is what our democracy needs and deserves. Naomi Siegelman Port Jefferson

The 2016 election of Donald Trump resulted, in large part, from working class, non-college-educated white voters deserting a Democratic Party (and the establishment GOP) perceived as economically and culturally out of touch and embracing Trump’s populist, antiestablishment, nationalist rhetoric and promises. Resenting cultural and racial displacement, illegal immigration and economic regression, these “forgotten Americans” saw, in Donald Trump, the savior who would “make America great again.” The dangerously polarized body politic is ill served by the mutual demonization of our current political discourse. Thus, I shall neither impugn nor denigrate the beliefs or values of those who, in good faith, embraced the vision of candidate Trump. What is inexplicable, however, is the inability of these very supporters to recognize the failure of President Trump’s vision and campaign promises? Building

an 1,800-mile wall paid for by Mexico produces 40 miles of wall paid for by the American taxpayer. Promising to balance the budget within eight years morphs into a projected $9.1 trillion deficit in that period. Repeal and replace Obamacare fails with 7 million Americans losing their health insurance under Trump. A pledge to cut taxes of the middle class fills the coffers of the rich (with the top 1 percent receiving 83 percent of the benefits) while, by 2027, the bottom 60 percent of Americans will pay more. “Drain the swamp” translates into Trump’s national security adviser, campaign manager and private attorney in prison; our regulatory agencies staffed by the former executives and lobbyists drawn from the industries they are now regulating; hush money paid to a porn star; financially profiting from the presidency; and seeking Russian and Ukrainian assistance in two campaigns. Pledges to project American strength abroad is reduced to alienating

allies, coddling despots and failing to contain North Korea, Iran, Russia and the Taliban while waging a trade war with China that threatens recession. And finally despite promising to “always tell you the truth,” more than 12,000 lies have been reported in his 950 days in office. One would hope that at some point, Trump supporters would become overwhelmed by his failures and broken promises and reject him. That they do not may be explained by recognizing that Trump’s actual promises and policies were never the key to their support. Rather, they loyally follow him not because of who he is or what he does but because of what they think he believes — and how that empowers them and makes their voice relevant once more. They incorrectly believe that conceding Trump’s failures would delegitimize their core values and beliefs. William Schaefer Old Field

After reading Bob Lipinski’s “The resurgence of India pale ale” in the Sept. 19 TBR News Media’s Arts & Lifestyles section, I felt compelled to comment. First off, I loved the article yet feel I must add my own experience to it. In the fall of 1974, I returned from San Diego while finishing Coast Guard training for anti-submarine warfare. While out West, I was least of all impressed with Coors, Olympia and some of the other local brews and gravitated toward the ales

(which were few and far between). Well, one afternoon, I was in Stony Brook Beverage looking for my usual, Ballantine XXX ale, when the clerk recommended I try a recent addition to their stock called Ballantine India Pale Ale. It was 99 cents for a six pack. He said that if I enjoyed the XXX, I would certainly enjoy this. Well, after the first swallow, I was hooked. I drank this IPA as it was the only one available and there was no

competition at the time. Then as suddenly as it appeared, it vanished, and I was in mourning for over 20 years. The rest is history but I must say that I remember Ballantine as the pioneer of IPAs. Now I am paralyzed by choice. I now frequent the Country Corner in Setauket which has always at least five craft IPAs on tap and changes brands almost daily (as well as their lines regularly).

Opinion

Practicing what we preach, one bottle at a time

E

vidence of my own failure sits in plain sight on my desk. I believe in recycling, in saving the planet, in doing what’s right for me, my children and for future generations. I readily agree that using onetime plastic pollutes the world and kills marine creatures. And yet, here, sitting on my desk, are two plastic water bottles from onetime-use plastics. D. None I will, of of the above course, recycle BY DANIEL DUNAIEF them, but that’s not the point. Why can’t I walk the walk if I talk the talk? It’s not enough to believe in something or to nod in agreement

as I read articles about conserving ecosystems, protecting biodiversity and reducing our — no, my — carbon footprint. I could and should do something about it. For example, I should use, clean and reuse the same cup, cutting back on waste. I speak with people regularly about conservation when I write the Power of Three column for TBR News Media. Often, I ask in the context of their findings about climate change, the atmosphere or biodiversity, what kind of car they drive or how they live their lives. Interviewees sometimes chuckle anxiously, share their concerns about flying to research meetings, and sigh that they should do more. Well, maybe the better way to describe it is they should live differently. We all think good thoughts, but those thoughts alone don’t change the world. The environment isn’t self-cleaning, the planet has limited space and finite resources, and we should look closely in the mirror at our own decisions and actions.

I read about 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, who came to the United Nations and delivered an impassioned speech, challenging leaders to do more and to protect the world for her generation. The teen’s words spoke volumes, as she demanded accountability and passed judgment, from the younger generation on up, for the failings of all of us who haven’t heeded the warnings. Despite her young age, she has walked the walk. She traveled by boat to the United Nations in New York aboard a zero-emission yacht because she refuses to use a mode of transportation — flying — that emits carbon dioxide. She also went to Davos, Switzerland, for 32 hours aboard a train, again limiting her contribution to fossil fuel emissions. Each of those options might not be practical for many people, but they show her commitment and passion. We live with a predicament: We see and acknowledge what we believe are our principles, and then we take actions that at times

conflict with those beliefs. That extends beyond the world of climate change and conservation. We often have a chance to see the disconnect between what we say and what we do when our children — or someone else’s children — point them out to us. We don’t want our children texting while they’re driving and yet they sit next to us or in the backseat and see us connecting through our phones with work colleagues or with people waiting to meet us for dinner. It is also why any kind of poll isn’t completely accurate. We might say one thing, but do the opposite for a host of reasons, including not wanting to tell a cheerful stranger on the other end of the phone what we intend to do. We recognize the importance of supporting ideas. The challenge, however, comes when we have the chance to choose between the easier option — a plastic bottle of cold water — or the one that supports our beliefs. When we see our failures of principle, the question is: What are we going to do about it?

‘Over 50 and basically dead’ is an example of bigotry

A

geism is a bias just as much as racism and religious intolerance. And just like other bigotries beget those who are fighting to correct such attitudes, there is an effort underway to counteract ageism. One arena being targeted in that regard is the advertising world, as at the Advertising Week conference which is being held in New York this week. Now, remember, older people hold the bulk of the wealth in this and every other country and make up a growing segment of the global population. According to The New York Times, in an article by Tiffany Hsu Sept. 23, more than a third of the American population is over Between 50, yet that segyou and me ment is portrayed “in only 15 percent BY LEAH S.

according to research from AARP, the powerful advocacy organization” for older Americans. We all know that marketing and advertising are powerful influencers in our lives. Martha Boudreau, AARP chief communications and marketing officer, is quoted as saying that “many advertising agencies had never dealt with marketing campaigns targeting older consumers. Recent ads have described being 50 years old as being ‘basically dead’ and characterized older people as selfish and out of touch.” In fact, it is the older generation that is helping their younger family members to attend college and get a start in their careers to an unprecedented degree because the older generation is richer today than at any other time in history. So why would that attitude persist? Here’s a likely explanation. There is rampant ageism in the offices of advertising agencies. Again, according to The Times, at advertising, public relations and related companies in the United States, “more than 81 percent of employees are younger than 55. And just for an interesting comparison, in Britain, the average age of advertising employees

is “not quite 34.” In trade publications for the advertising agencies, employees have described the industry as a “Peter Pan,” Few last long enough for a retirement party and there have been lawsuits charging age discrimination. Yes, someday those same employees will be 50 years and older, and their perspectives will change, but we are dealing with the here and now. Here are some more details from a report involving 1,116 images reviewed by AARP. More than 53 million people older than 50 are employed in the United States, but only 13 percent of the images showed older people working. Those photographed were pictured mainly at home, with a partner or a medical professional. The numbers get worse. Not even 5 percent of the images showed older folks handling technology, although the Pew Research Center found that 69 percent of people in the age group of 55-73, according to The Times, owned a smartphone. But more than a third of the images showed younger people with technology. AARP’s Boudreau commented for The Times, “Marketers reflect the culture and the conversation in our country. Stereotypes about the 55-plus demographic were really limiting

people’s sense of what they could do with this half of their lives.” The group collected 1,400 images for conference attendees showing older people running businesses, playing basketball and hanging out with younger generations. “McCann, which runs a network of advertising agencies, suggested in a report last year that marketing campaigns consider perspectives of aging as ‘a journey of limitless opportunities and personal growth’ rather than ‘as a time of anxiety and uncertainty,’ according to The Times. There has been some progress in changing perceptions. A decade ago the best-selling image from Getty, the stock media supplier of images, was of an older couple in sweaters embracing on a beach. In June with an increase of 151 percent in customer searches of “seniors” from a year earlier, the most popular image in the category shows a group of women in T-shirts practicing yoga. For our part, here at TBR News Media, we welcome older applicants for positions just as we do those of any age. All we are interested in is the best possible talent and judgment to serve our mission each week.
