Mount Sinai school district’s board of education swore in AnneMarie Henninger to fill the seat left vacant by Michael Riggio.
Mount Sinai swears in new BOE member The Mount Sinai school district swore in a new board member Sept. 26 to replace threeyear trustee Michael Riggio, who vacated his position in August. AnneMarie Henninger, a physical therapist and Mount Sinai resident, was unanimously voted in by the six remaining board members several weeks after the seat became open. The board decided to vote internally on a new board member soon after Riggio announced he was stepping away from his position. Board President Robert Sweeney said the entire board spent two nights for four hours each in September reviewing the 10 applications submitted by district residents. “We were looking for people who were looking to build consensus, listen, participate and learn,” Sweeney said. “In our process one of the questions we asked was ‘how have you worked for the support of the community and volunteered for the community previously?’” Henninger did not respond to multiple requests for comment. The board had three options in choosing a new member to fill the position vacated by Riggio. It could have either held a special election, leave the seat vacant until the scheduled trustee elections in May or request applications from interested community members and then vote on a new board member internally. Sweeney said the board did not want to miss out on having a seventh member and not have a swing vote,
and that it did not think it was financially viable to hold a special election so soon after the last community board and budget vote in May. Candidates for the position needed to be a qualified voter in the district, be a resident of the district for at least one year and could not be a current employee of the district. Mount Sinai looked for candidates to show their prior community service or volunteer work in the district as well as their ability to attend one to three meetings a month and be available at all times to communicate. Sweeney said Henninger fit all those qualities, and more. “It was very interesting to listen to her perspective on how she has often been called into special education committee meetings,” Sweeney said. “We had 10 good community members come forward – all good people with varying degrees of participation in the community, but it was also her knowledge of the district, her participation in the district and its board meetings that made us choose her.” Riggio was elected to trustee position during the May board elections, though he decided to officially step down Aug. 5 after receiving an offer for a new job in Florida. The job would take too much of his attention from his responsibilities that he didn’t wish to become a detriment to the work of the board, he said. Henninger’s seat will come up for vote again in May 2019. Three at-large seats will be up for grabs at that time, and the person to receive the third most votes will take up Riggio’s seat, which will have a two-year tenure instead of the usual three years for the other seats.

Scout constructs deck on historical society grounds Visitors to Miller Place-Mount Sinai Historical Society’s annual Postman Pete event are in for an improved experience thanks to the ingenuity of a local Boy Scout who has reached Eagle status. Boy Scouts hoping to become Eagle Scouts, the highest rank attainable by a male Scout, are tasked with completing a project that demonstrates leadership and benefits the community. Joseph DiBiasi, a 17-year-old Comsewogue High School senior and member of Boy Scout Troop 1776 said he has been attending the historical society’s Postman Pete festivities since he was a kid, an event that gives kids the chance to hand over a letter to be delivered to Santa around Christmas time.

He aspires to be an engineer at some point in his life. He definitely has a mathematical mind, and he put pen to paper.” Brookhaven town Councilwoman Jane Bonner (C-Rocky Point) attended the event and presented proclamations to DiBiasi and Michael Muroff, another Scout from Troop 1776 who presented his completed project that day. “We always like to take time out of our day to recognize and honor our Scouts,” Bonner said. “So much attention is focused on the bad things our kids are doing and not on the good things they’re doing. It makes me feel good to know that we’re surrounded by some really great kids.”

BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Shoreham-Wading River High School students looking to make gains have been impeded with the loss of the school’s fitness center, and now the district is looking at its options for a new one. The high school’s fitness center, which has been around since the late 1980s and is detached from the main building, was closed down in July this year because an assessment of the building by the school district’s internal engineer showed the flooring was not up to code for constant physical activity. “The flooring in the fitness area needed structural support in order to meet that code requirements, and the amount came back for that being $200,000 to conduct those repairs,” Superintendent Gerard Poole said. “Over the summer the board asked that we look with our architect at decision making process alternatives within the school district to make a fitness center or a fitness room.” With the loss of the old fitness center, the district has moved exercise equipment to room 102, located in close proximity to the high school’s lower floor cafeteria, on the other side of the school from the locker rooms and gymnasium. Current amenities for the temporary facility include a TRX cable-based exercise machine, medicine balls, dumbbells, bench presses and some cardio equipment, according to Poole. At the SWR Sept. 25 school board meeting members said the district was considering three options. One is to fix the flooring in the old fitness center, which might be the most expensive. Another is to combine rooms 102 and 101 next to the high school cafeteria to create a new 1,400-square-foot fitness space. Lastly the district could section off a portion of the auxiliary gym and combine it with an existing storage space to create another 1,400-squarefoot fitness center. Poole said the district did not have an exact date when they will come to a decision. “I do not have a deadline, but as always we want to come to a decision as soon as we can,” Poole said. “It’s good to take out time for a decision as long as we’re spending money.” While replacing the floor would cost $200,000, other options currently seem to cost much less. Ken Schupner, an architect for Patchogue-based Burton Behrendt Smith Architects,
whose services are retained by the school, said it would cost approximately $75,000 to $100,000 to break through the high school’s auxiliary gym to make room for a 1,400-square-foot fitness center. Because of the work already done to room 102, extending that space into room 101 should also cost less than patching the old facility’s floor, the architect said. Board President Michael Lewis questioned whether students will be able to utilize the space if the fitness center is located on the other side of the building from the locker rooms. “Getting it close to physical education [facilities] is maximizing utilization for the sports teams, and with having it on the lower floor next to the cafeteria are the students really going to travel all the way there to work out?” Lewis said. Schupner said while the room is located far from the gym, it also has an exit to the outside of the building, making it easier for students to access after practice on the sports fields. If the school were to opt to use the auxiliary gym, it could disrupt current physical education classes. Poole said five classes are currently scheduled in that room, which is also used extensively by the wrestling and cheerleading teams. Schupner said renovations to the detached current fitness center are less applicable for state aid compared to facilities located inside the building. Shoreham resident Robert Badalian regularly used the old fitness center in the hours when it was open to the public, and he and others didn’t want to be left out of the conversation. “We don’t want to be excluded,” Badalian said. “It was a place for people to exercise and feel comfortable — not be intimidated like you could if you go to another gym.” Badalian also said he hoped the district would focus more on modernizing the fitness center, saying that compared to high schools like Ward Melville, which have a more modern fitness center, SWR is lagging behind. Carolyn Baier, another Shoreham resident who was a regular at the fitness center, said having it open to the rest of the community helped get people more involved and in tune with their local school. Baier was on the SWR school board in the 1980s, back when the decision came down to create the fitness center. “The young people who used it were so nice, they would pick up my weights for me when I hurt my hand,” Baier said. “This was a community thing.”

Kent Animal Shelter saves dozens of dogs from uncertain fate BY HEIDI SUTTON
“Those animals usually come around more quickly in a foster home.” Financial donations and supplies such as canned cat and dog food, paper towels, bleach, cat litter, treats, towels and blankets are also appreciated. Kent Animal Shelter celebrates its golden anniversary this year. The private not-for-profit, located at 2259 River Road in Calverton along the Peconic River, opened its doors in 1968. It rescues and finds homes for over 700 dogs and cats each year. “We had almost 100 adoptions this July alone,” Green said proudly, who has been at the helm of the no-kill facility for over 30 years. For the executive director, working at the shelter is a labor of love filled with rewards and happy endings. “I’ve been doing this for 33 years and I still come to the same office because I feel that we are really making a difference here. Maybe we’re not going to save all the animals, but just saving the ones that we can get to changes their lives and changes the lives of people too,” she said. “I still get so much joy out of seeing an animal leave the shelter and go to a new home. It’s the greatest thing – it makes my day.”
KENT ANIMAL SHELTER
Amid mandatory evacuation orders in the Carolinas and Virginia in advance of Hurricane Florence, many fleeing residents left their pets behind to fend for themselves. For those pets lucky enough to be rescued, they were brought to area shelters already full to capacity. When news spread the animals would start being euthanized if no one adopted them, Kent Animal Shelter in Calverton quickly joined other outreach groups to make a difference. Working in conjunction with Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons, the shelter took in 12 dogs after the storm. “We then sent our own truck down to South Carolina and when they came back they had 17 more,” said Pamela Green, Kent’s executive director, in an interview on Oct. 1. The most recent group of dogs came from South Carolina’s Marlboro and Horry counties, two of the hardest hit areas devastated by flooding. “Those counties were still pretty much under water as recent as last Tuesday so those dogs were from people who lost their homes and relinquished the ani-
mals,” Green said. “The people probably don’t have places to live themselves at this point.” The new arrivals range in age from 9 weeks to 4 years and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The executive director said there are hound mixes “which are common in the South” as well as Labrador mixes and a few Chihuahuas. While many have already been adopted, all the dogs will all be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before going to their new homes. Shelters in areas ravaged by Hurricane Florence announced last week that they are temporarily halting the transport of animals to give residents more time to reclaim their dogs. For the staff at Kent, however, this was only a short reprieve as they are were expecting 10 dogs to arrive from a Missouri puppy mill last Sunday. According to Green, the shelter is always looking for foster homes. “Sometimes the animals we get in are a bit traumatized. In the case of the hurricane, they’ve already been exposed to some trauma so then they are transported a very long way and by the time they get here they’re pretty scared or nervous,” she said, adding,

Shoreham community and beyond mourns death of Boy Scout BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM
‘Classmates, teachers and friends found [Andrew] sometimes silly, always funny and, occasionally, a bit cheeky. He was a friend to everyone and showed kindness to all.’
From Riverhead to Miller Place, red ribbons hung on street signs, store facades, schoolyard fences and mail boxes. The North Shore community was draped in red, the same crimson color worn on the shirts and kerchiefs of Boy Scouts. The color now adorns a community in mourning. As news spread that 12-year-old Andrew McMorris, a Shoreham resident of Boy Scout Troop 161 and student at Shoreham-Wading River’s Albert G. Prodell Middle School, was killed by an allegedly drunk driver Sept. 30 while on a hiking outing with several members of his troop on David Terry Road in Manorville, the community quickly galvanized in support. Four others from the troop were injured as a result of the crash, according to Suffolk County police. In the week since the news broke, hundreds of residents headed onto local community Facebook pages to share their grief and ask what assistance they could offer the family. Some offered to send food in their time of need. Others buckled down and started making ribbons and wristbands for residents to show their hearts went out to all those hurt by the tragedy. Pamela Garee, an agent with Wading River real estate company Coldwell Banker M&D Good Life, who works closely with Troop 161, quickly got about 70 volunteers to create 700 red ribbons by Oct. 5. Each ribbon cost $10, with all proceeds going to support the troop, the Shoreham-Wading River school district’s Wildcat Helpers of the Arts and Music, and nonproﬁt advocacy group Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Ribbons are still available at the Coldwell Banker ofﬁce at the Shoppes at East Wind in Wading River. “We’re really doing it to be supportive of the troop, the boys, the victims and their families,” Garee said. “The support from the community — it’s been wonderful.” Garee said they sold about 550 ribbons since Friday, Oct. 5. Suffolk County has also taken up the task of honoring the Boy Scout, as County Executive Steve Bellone’s (D) ofﬁce announced Oct. 4 it would place ribbons at the entrances to 16 major county parks. “It is with great sadness that we remember Andrew, but I am proud to honor this bright, dedicated young man with this small act of remembrance,” Bellone said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family now and forever in the wake of this immeasurable tragedy.” The ﬁrst of three wakes were held for Andrew Oct. 4. The sidewalks were lined with red ribbons, and a near-constant stream of friends, family and community members journeyed to the Branch Funeral Home of Miller Place to pay their respects. Members of Boy Scout Troop 204 of Miller Place stood at attention in front of the funeral home, serving as an honor guard paying respect to the

fallen fellow Scout. The funeral was held Saturday, Oct. 6, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Islip. Others in the community were decorating their own houses and storefronts with the ribbons. Shortly after David and Gloria Kurtinaitis, owners of Forte’s Florist in Wading River, got word of the tragedy they used their own material to decorate their shopping complex with the symbol. “It’s great when the community comes together, it’s just a hard way to do it,” David Kurtinaitis said. The incident occurred Sept. 30 as the troop was taking a day hike through the Greenbelt Trail in Manorville. Thomas Murphy, 59, of Holbrook was driving a 2016 Mercedes southbound on David Terry Road at approximately 1:55 p.m. when his vehicle struck the Scouts who were walking northbound on the shoulder of the roadway, according police. Andrew was rushed to the hospital but died due to his injuries Oct. 1, police said. Along with Andrew four other boys were also hit by the driver. Denis Lane, 16, of Shoreham; Kaden Lynch, 15, of Calverton; and Matthew Yakaboski, 15, of Calverton, sustained non-life-threatening injuries. Thomas Lane, 15, of Shoreham, was airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital where he has continued to be treated for serious injuries as of Oct. 5. Murphy was charged with driving while intoxicated, though Suffolk County District Attorney Tim Sini’s (D) ofﬁce has left open the possibility of upgrading the charges. An attorney for Murphy did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The SWR school district has put a notice on its website saying support services were available to students and staff, and that parents or guardians could call the school should they wish their children to get grief support.
In a statement released to Newsday, the McMorris family shared Andrew’s love for acting, the Boy Scouts and aviation. “Andrew wanted to ﬂy before he could walk,” the statement read. “Airplanes, helicopters and rockets were the obsession of his life, and he achieved his ﬁrst piloting goal this past summer during AeroCamp ... Andrew was occasionally chided by parents, coaches and teachers for having his head in the clouds, but for Andrew, that only made sense.” The support for the Scout troop members and the McMorris family has even extended beyond the Shoreham community. A GoFundMe fundraising campaign for Troop 161 has reached more than $18,000 as of Oct. 8, just eight days after Andrew’s passing. Andrew participated in AeroCamp, a youth ﬂight educational program hosted by Mid Island Air Service. The organization released a statement highlighting Andrew’s love for aviation. “Andrew worked hard during camp to complete his Boy Scout Aviation Merit Badge and we
were so proud of him,” the statement read. “We are saddened by this senseless loss and offer his family our deepest condolences.” A Change.org petition titled “Name an AA 787 after Andrew McMorris,” which seeks to get American Airlines to name a jet after Andrew, has already reached well over 12,000 signatures. The petition’s creator, aviation photographer Hunter Lyons, is seeking response from the airline that could help get Andrew’s name on a plane. Andrew is survived by his mother, Alisha, father, John, and sister, Arianna. In their statement the family asked that no items be placed as memorials at the scene of the crash and instead that residents tie a red ribbon to their property, and that instead of sending ﬂowers residents donate to Troop 161, WHAM and MADD. “Bright and hardworking, Andrew was an honor roll student,” the family’s statement said. “Classmates, teachers and friends found him sometimes silly, always funny and, occasionally, a bit cheeky. He was a friend to everyone and showed kindness to all.”

Report details affordable housing shortage in Suffolk
BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM
It’s already difficult for both the young and old to find affordable housing in Suffolk County, but according to a recent report, the lack of low-cost homes and apartments is forcing some people to live without roofs over their heads entirely. The Suffolk County Legislature’s Welfare to Work Commission, which advises the legislature on issues related to poverty in the county, released a report Oct. 2 that detailed the holes in affordable housing and government programs. Many of those homeless in Suffolk have some sort of job or income, according to the report. “There has been some progress on public acceptance for affordable housing especially for working people, and especially for young people and senior citizens,” said Richard Koubek, the chair of the commission. “There still remains obstacles for creating affordable housing for two groups of residents: one is working poor families … the other are people who have mental illness which often leads to homelessness.” The commission spent two-and-a-half years studying the issue of affordable housing and other related problems, including the county’s capacity to aid the homeless and those suffering from mental health issues. The final report showed high home and rent costs, along with government programs unable to handle the current numbers of people suffering from mental health issues, among its conclusions. Need for more affordable and supportive housing As of January 2018, the advocacy group Long Island Coalition for the Homeless reported there were 3,868 homeless individuals in Nassau and Suffolk counties. Not all homeless are considered chronically homeless, or individuals who have a disability and have been homeless for more than 12 months, or have had at least four stints without a home in the last three years. About 500 families are homeless, or 2,500 individuals, in Suffolk County, of which half have a source of income but are still unable to afford housing or rent costs, according to the report. The report said the county spends more than $19 million annually feeding and supporting this population. The report noted the 2017 Suffolk County area yearly median income is $110,800, while the median price of a home in 2017 was $376,000, according to census data. If an individual or family spent 30 percent of income on housing costs, the national and suggested average, they would have to earn $125,000 a year to afford the median home price. If a family wanted to rent, only 18 percent of available housing is rental, compared to the national average of 37 percent. Market rate for monthly apartment rentals in Suffolk was $1,589 in 2017, according to census data, meaning families in that market would have to earn $57,204 — 52 percent of the area median income — a year if

they spent 30 percent of their income on the apartment costs. New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli (D) said Suffolk was ranked 57th out of 62 New York counties in rental affordability. Greta Guarton, the executive director of the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless, said among government entities there is more of an emphasis on removing people from poverty rather than aiding people in poverty. “The thinking used to be 20 percent of those who are homeless use 80 percent of emergency services,” Guarton said. “A fresh look at homelessness shows 80 percent of homeless families do not have disabilities. ... In places like Long Island these people are homeless because they cannot find an affordable rental unit in this region’s tight, extremely expensive housing market.” The LICH director added the most effective approach to combating homelessness is the Housing First Model, which tries to provide stability in a person’s life through housing, in addition to treatment and supportive services. With housing secured, those suffering from chronic homelessness can focus on stabilizing other parts of their lives, the report said. It is especially difficult for those suffering from mental illness to find affordable housing. Koubek said the emphasis has been moving away from asylums since the 1960s and toward community care facilities, but those smaller-scale places have not been financially supported, and there simply aren’t enough of them. The Suffolk County Department of Health Division of Community Mental Hygiene Services’ Single Point of Access program, which places people with mental illness into supportive housing, had a wait list 887 people long as of late 2017, according to the
report. Those who wish to be placed on the list must attain a physician’s diagnosis, which the report calls difficult if the person is suffering alone or is already homeless. People with undiagnosed mental illness also create a vacuum of funds — utilizing a huge chunk of the county’s money allocated for homeless programs. The report noted as much as $8 million of the $10 million in grants for homeless programs awarded to Long Island’s federal Department of Housing and Urban Development funded Continuum of Care program went to serving those with undiagnosed mental issues. The study also pointed to incidents where people suffering from mental health issues were discharged from hospitals before they could receive the proper care. This puts more of an emphasis on requiring local government to funnel these people into supportive housing, which is difficult if they are released onto the street or remain undiagnosed. The commission named a number of countywide solutions to address these issues, including increasing funding for the SPA program and improving the number of placements, prioritizing homeless families on the Public Housing Authority waiting lists, addressing substandard housing, improving Suffolk hospital discharge policies for the homeless and creating a coordinated county response to address low-income housing. Current affordable housing projects trying to meet demand New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced May 10 $25.6 million had been awarded to four housing developments on Long Island to create 239 affordable homes. On the state level, the report requested New York increases financial supports for capital
construction and operating costs of supportive housing, and that it turns over unused state property to the county for the construction of more supportive housing. Legislature Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory (D-Amityville) and Legislator Tom Donnelly (D-Deer Park), who also chairs the legislature’s Education & Human Services Committee, each said Oct. 2 a need exists for public-private partnerships to create more affordable housing options. “Homelessness is not imagined — it exists here in Suffolk County because of government policies which create instability,” Gregory said. “If people are spending a greater percent of their income on housing costs it leads to difficult choices. Will they buy food and clothing for their children or will they pay for their own home?” In 2007 the commission issued another report, “Affordable for Whom? Creating Housing for Low and Moderate-Income People in Suffolk County,” which noted a public opinion poll showing 70 percent of Long Islanders seeing the need for more affordable housing while twothirds of the same population not wanting it near their own communities. Koubek said this attitude is changing somewhat, but getting projects like these approved remains a tall task. Roger Weaving Jr., the president of the Huntington Township Housing Coalition, said the lack of affordable housing is a major reason why so many young people are leaving for other states. Many Long Islanders express concerns about having affordable two- to three-bedroom apartments in their communities, despite obvious demand for such dwellings. “On the North Shore you can either have a single-family house or you can leave,” Weaving said. “While some of this is affected by state and county actions, a lot of action is at the town level, because they control zoning.” Out of the money Cuomo helped set aside for affordable housing, $8.1 million was tabbed for construction of six two-story buildings on vacant land off Route 112 in Port Jefferson Station, north of East Grove Street and south of Washington Avenue. The project is being constructed by Medford-based Concern for Independent Living Inc. The development came under fire from the community, during a Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Civic Association meeting in May for various reasons, including concerns about overdevelopment and costs to educate children living in the new buildings. Ralph Fasano, the executive director of Concern for Independent Living, said a section of the development is dedicated to housing veterans as well. He said the company plans to break ground on the project by December. “It’s going to look [like the company’s development in Amityville] – it’s going to be quiet.” Fasano said. PJSTCA president, Sal Pitti, declined to comment, and said the association would be having a civic member vote Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. on whether or not to publicly support the project.

Rocky Point, NY 11778 www.rockypointfuneralhome.com
Rocky Point Middle School students and staff got a spirited start to the fall season as they celebrated their Eagle pride with a philanthropic twist. School colors blanketed the building during events including a pep rally and theatrical skits focused on the themes of the school’s Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports program. The day’s events ended with a “lemon” pie eating relay race that called for teams of teachers representing all grade levels to race across the gymnasium to be the first to consume whipped cream pies. Attendees donated hundreds of dollars during the event to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand, an organization that supports childhood cancer research. In a fun way to cap off the program, one student from those who donated to the cause was selected at random to pie interim Principal James Moeller in the face, pictured above. The lucky winner was sixth-grader Heidi Lanze, pictured on the right.

The Miller Place School District announced in September the recognition of its high school’s athletic program by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association as a School of Distinction in the Scholar-Athlete Team category for the 2017-18 school year. Miller Place High School is one of only 30 public schools from the 750 in New York state to earn this distinction and be placed on the 2017-18 NYSPHAA Academic Honor Roll. “The district is extremely proud of our athletic program and its recognition by the NYSPHSAA for the third consecutive year,” said Superintendent Marianne Cartisano, pictured on the right. “Our students’ ongoing success is exemplary of the academic caliber and athletic excellence of the Miller Place School District.” The Miller Place High School Athletic Program has earned different levels of scholar-athlete recognition by the NYSPHSAA over the last few years. During the 2015-16 school year, MPHS’ athletic program received the School of Distinction Award, and in the 2016-17 school year, the high school’s athletic program earned the School of Excellence award. In order to be recognized as a scholar-athlete team by the NYSPHSAA Scholar Athlete Program, 75 percent of team rosters must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 90 or better. To qualify as a School of Distinction, each team in the district’s varsity program must earn scholar-athlete team status for the duration

Stony Brook University President Dr. Samuel L. Stanley Jr. delivers the state of the university address Oct. 3.
Stanley delivers annual state of the university address
BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM As Stony Brook University President Dr. Samuel L. Stanley Jr. looks confidently to the future, the school’s budget deficit is still at the forefront of his mind. On Oct. 3, Stanley delivered his ninth state of the university address on the Staller Center’s main stage to an auditorium full of faculty, staff, students and elected officials. During the speech, which lasted about an hour, the university president touched on several topics including enrollment growth, Stony Brook Medicine’s future and financial woes and successes — like the university’s positive economic impact on Long Island. When it comes to tackling the budget deficit, Stanley did not specify the exact amount but said there is more work that needs to be done to lessen the financial shortfall. He said a hiring freeze still holds for 2018-19 because nothing has changed externally as the university has not received an increase of state support since 2010. He said fee increases and enrollment growth has helped alleviate some of the financial burdens, and the university is actively communicating with the state to seek an increase in allocations. Stanley touted SBU’s presence as a driver for the local economy, citing about $7.2 billion generated from the hospital’s research; people hired and contracted; start-up companies involved with SBU’s incubator; and purchases of students and faculty in the area. “We always take these things with a little grain of salt, but I think it’s an important thing that we need to talk about because again the state puts a significant investment into Stony Brook University,” he said. “We appreciate the investment we get from the state, but it’s really nice to talk about the return on that investment from the state.”
The university also saw positive results from The Campaign for Stony Brook fundraising efforts, which raised $630.7 million. He said many people ask him why money can’t be taken from those funds to help with the school’s budget deficit. “Ninety-eight percent of that money raised is directly allocated to specific goals that our donors have on campus,” he said, adding the funds are usually put toward scholarships, endowed professorships, research projects or a specific campus building. Stanley said the four-year graduation rate for the class entering in 2014 has reached 62 percent for four-year graduates, which signifies a 17-point jump from a 45 percent graduation rate for the class entering in 2007. Among the factors he credited for the success is the Finish in 4 Grants Program. Initiated in spring 2015, the program assists students in good standing who are about to complete their studies but are confronted with personal circumstances that prevent it. “We want to continue to build on this momentum, but it’s going to be important that we work very hard and continue to find the resources to support this very important program,” he said. Stanley said a significant part of the university’s budget, $2.28 billion, is for Stony Brook Medicine. “We are the destination, I believe, for quality care on Long Island,” he said. “We’re the only provider of a level one trauma center for Long Island. We have the only children’s hospital in Suffolk County.” In the next few months, Stony Brook University Hospital will be opening the Medical and Research Translation building with a stateof-the-art cancer center, Stony Brook Children’s and Hospital Pavilion and the Phillips Family Cancer Center in Southampton.

Community support needed in good times and bad
Recent tragedies have shown just how good and inspired our community can be if everyone bands together behind a cause. On Sept. 30 Boy Scouts from Troop 161, based in Shoreham, were hit by an alleged drunk driver while hiking in Manorville. While four young men suffered injuries, 12-year-old Andrew McMorris, a student at Shoreham-Wading River’s Albert G. Prodell Middle School, was pronounced dead the morning after he was hit. The news quickly spread on social media, and the community rose rapidly to the occasion. Red ribbons still fly across Long Island from mailboxes, street signs and even entrances to Suffolk County parks. A GoFundMe to support the troop has already raised close to $19,000, and the wakes and funeral for the young man were packed by those wishing to pay respect. We’ve seen this groundswell of community activism in other places in response to hard times elsewhere. On Sept. 25 Port Jefferson Village was inundated with water that in some places reached as high as 4 or 5 feet following intense rain. Port Jeff’s Theatre Three saw the worst of that damage, as the flooding destroyed props, costumes, play scripts, books and thousands of dollars in electrical equipment, not to mention structural damage to the old building. Yet again we saw the community step up to aid its local theater. Galvanized by news stories and online crowd funding campaigns, dozens of volunteers came to the theater to aid in the cleanup, and theater personnel reported it started receiving thousands of dollars in donations the morning right after the flood, which have continued. The rise of online connectivity can prove a useful tool in times like these, yet still there is a pervading sense that the world is becoming more insular. With election season right on the horizon and with tensions rising, we kindly remind people it’s OK to be a good neighbor even in not-so-tragic times. We in the news business know just how powerful and stimulating a community coming together can be. Yes, reporters are people too, and it’s hard not to be heartened, even in the face of mind-numbing tragedy, to drive to work every day with countless red ribbons lining both sides of the road like a landing strip. Imagine if it didn’t take tragedy to excite such fervor in the local community. Two childhood friends in Commack have worked to bring Commack Day back to Hoyt Farm after a near-30-year absence. The lifelong friends and Commack natives James Manikas and Dean Spinato got the community involved by posting the idea to local Facebook groups, driving their support through connectivity. There are so many issues that Long Island currently faces, from the threat of nitrogen in coastal waters, rising sea levels and a lack of affordable housing, yet we at TBR News Media watched how well the community can come together to get things done in times of need. It would be great to see the community come together more on an average day.

Letters to the editor
Vote Green in NY gubernatorial election
I am the Green Party candidate for governor in New York state. Four years ago I finished third with 5 percent of the vote. Several of the issues I raised such as a ban on fracking, a $15 an hour minimum wage, and paid family leave were at least partially adopted by Gov. Cuomo after the election. After the primary debate, which largely ignored upstate New York and many critical issues starting with climate change, I proposed four regional debates — New York City Metro area, Capital District, Central New York and Western New York — to each focus on a topic area: the economy; government reform; the environment and climate; and social policy, including education, health care, housing, criminal justice and civil rights. The debate rules would be determined by all of the candidates and the media and civic organizations, not just
Cuomo. The media and civic organizations would organize the debates and hold them whether or not Cuomo decides to appear. There are many critical problems facing the state that the voters should hear about from the candidates. The climate change crisis is getting so bad that The New York Times Magazine devoted its whole issue recently to an article concluding that the planet is doomed. We need an emergency mobilization to halt the burning of fossil fuels and instead create jobs and lower electric costs by moving to 100 percent clean energy as fast as possible. Many parents and teachers know we need to improve and fully fund our schools and focus on quality education in desegregated schools, not high-stakes testing. A single-payer health care system would provide quality health care to everyone at less cost than the current
multipayer system. We need to reverse the growing income inequality in our state, making sure the rich pay their fair share of taxes so we can afford to improve our subways and mass transit; road and bridges; water and sewer systems; and public housing. We need an economy that provides living-wage jobs. We need to reform our criminal justice system to end cash bail and ensure a speedy trial, while promoting community policing and help for troubled youth to make our neighborhoods safe. It is time to we reclaim our politics from the partisan rancor and mean-spiritedness of the Trump era. One step is to ensure an open and civil debate among all ballot-qualified candidates about the future direction of our state. Howie Hawkins Syracuse
A tale of two countries, we and they After all the conversations, emails, tweets and Facebook postings is there a mind that’s been changed? Not likely. America has become a land of They and We. They called for a revolution, returning the country to a modern version of its former self. We wanted to continue the slow and sometimes erratic march toward a more equitable society. They saw Trump as a bold and daring leader who flouted convention. We saw him as a dangerous, egotistical liar who would damage the country. They thought we were arrogant bleeding hearts. We thought they were ignorant and heartless. Imagine if America was no longer “United” and ceased being the “indivisible” nation it claims to be? What if it was partitioned into two separate countries ... the We and They. They would have the flag, the lapel pins and the Second Amendment. We would have the Constitution. They would penalize those who don’t properly respect the flag, pledge or national anthem. We would defend the right to protest. They would have prayer and “under
God.” We would treat religion as a personal matter, not a public one. They would have charter, private and religion-based schools. We would have a nonsectarian public educational system. They would deport illegals. We would offer law-abiding illegals a pathway to citizenship. They would consider their police force nearly infallible. We would hold the police accountable for abuses. They, would have health insurance available for those who could afford it. We would provide universal medical care. They would be anti-union. We would be pro-union. They, would eliminate food stamps, the minimum wage and unemployment insurance. We would distribute food stamps, have an inflation-adjusted minimum wage and income for the unemployed. They would treat climate change as primarily nature’s rhythm. We would be advised by science in dealing with climate change. They would restrict weddings to those between a man and a woman. We would recognize weddings between any two consenting adults. They would eliminate sex education,
and criminalize abortion under most circumstances. We would teach sex education, provide birth control through health insurance and protect a woman’s right to control her own body. They could own and carry any weapon, anywhere, any time. We would ban several types of weapons and make stringent controls over gun purchases. They would reduce or eliminate many taxes. We would have a vigorously progressive tax code. They would eliminate most regulations. We would enact regulations for health, safety and the environment. They would require stringent steps to register and vote. We would encourage all adult citizens to vote. They would reduce or eliminate Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. We would raise the FICA tax to fund Social Security and universal medical coverage. They would build a wall. We would supplement our border patrols and use available technology. If the country split in two, each of us could choose the one in which we wanted to live. Bruce Stasiuk Setauket

Lessons learned from Kavanaugh confirmation
have a few questions for the newly minted Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanaugh. What did you learn through this process? You will be judging legal cases from people from all walks of life, working together with the eight other Supreme Court justices to decide on cases that will determine the law of the land for everyone. What’s it like D. None to be the accused? In some cases, the of the above accused will be as BY DANIEL DUNAIEF angry and defensive and frustrated as you were. How will you understand the legal issues of their cases? How will you consider the legal questions and how will you consider the implications for them? Will you understand the fury some people
might feel through the legal process? Will you appreciate their position, even as you use the law to guide your decision-making process? Maybe not because you, after all, didn’t go through a trial. Well, you certainly didn’t go through a judicial trial. You endured an ordeal, you experienced a political maelstrom and you became a divisive ﬁgure, suffering through accusations you found abhorrent. People prejudged you because of the claims women made about your behavior from years ago. Will you be able to appreciate the implications of your decisions on the people awaiting them? Will a process that you found impossibly difﬁcult make you better at your job? Will you grow from this experience, the way people who take an impossible organic chemistry class where they have to memorize and learn structures, concepts and stoichiometry become better students? People rarely ask for the suffering and hardship that comes during any process. It’s what makes movies about road trips so compelling:
People have to overcome or surmount obstacles along the way to get closer to the destination — or the truth. Will you learn about yourself and gain a new perspective on the country and all of its citizens now that you’ve made that trip? In many jobs, we ask people to go beyond what might be their natural responses to people or circumstances. Fireﬁghters race toward a burning building when they may want to run toward safety. The same holds true with the police, who enter unknown and potentially dangerous circumstances. Doctors can’t look at a wound and screech, “Yuck, that’s so disgusting, get that away from me.” In many jobs, we need to overcome our visceral responses, doing what’s asked and ignoring other parts of our experience because that’s what’s required. In your case, the country asks you to make the best judgment for everyone, even the Democrats or those who might accuse others of sexual assault. Will you be able to step out of a reﬂexive
response that’s all too human to make decisions that affect the lives of everyone? Taking a step away from Judge Kavanaugh, what have we all learned? We know the country is divided and we know people are prepared to ﬁnd evidence to support whatever conclusions they have already drawn. Can we become more judicial instead of prejudicial? Can we act the way we all hope Judge Kavanaugh will behave? The downside of the instantaneous world in which we live is that we expect instant results. We want food as soon as we order it and we want to speak with everyone and anyone whenever we feel the urge, even if we’re driving, standing in a line or watching a movie. Maybe what we’ll learn is that the judicial process requires time, effort and consideration. Perhaps we can be thankful that the fact-ﬁnding, questions and appeals process that accompanies trials will bring out enough information to render a verdict consistent with the law — not a political or any other personal belief.
In politics, it’s raining dogs and cats
artisanship is a distressing topic these days. We are a divided country on so many issues, and savvy candidates in the upcoming elections try to sooth that aggravation by offering to reach across the aisle to get the nation’s business done. But here is an age-old question that is simply unbridgeable: Which are smarter, dogs or cats? Now many of us have heard of Between Chaser, a border you and me collie from SparBY LEAH S. DUNAIEF tanburg, S.C., who understood 1,022 nouns. His owner was John Pilley, a scientist who studied canine cognition and trained his pet as part of his work. There was also a border collie named Rico who could identify 200 items.
These dogs helped us reach the conclusion that dogs were extraordinarily intelligent and certainly smarter than cats. But had their partisanship colored the verdict of remarkable canine smarts on the part of owner-scientists? Currently there seems to be a study for every question, and this one is no exception. Stephen Lea, an emeritus professor in the psychology department of the University of Exeter in Devon, England, along with Britta Osthaus, a senior lecturer in the School of Psychology, Politics and Sociology at Canterbury Christ Church University in Kent, England, conducted one such study, according to a recent Laura Holson article in The New York Times. The results are published in the journal Learning & Behavior. In the interests of full disclosure, Lea confessed that he was a cat person. Nonetheless the scientists tried to impartially compare dog cognition with three similar groups: carnivores, social hunters and domestic animals. Among those selected were wolves, cats, chimpanzees, dolphins, horses and pigeons. Here is what they found.

Dogs cannot use tools, unlike dolphins, New Caledonian crows and chimpanzees, which according to The Times, can harness plant stems to ﬁsh for termites. Homing pigeons are trained to ﬂy home over great distances, and probably would be more trustworthy to travel on a 1,000-mile errand than a dog, Lea believes. Domestic animals, like horses, can also impress with their learned tasks and tricks. Dogs seem smart in part, Lea said, “because they like to be trained.” The same cannot always be said for cats. In my dog-owning years, some 45 all together, I’ve loved and enjoyed the company of three golden retrievers and one royal (the largest) standard poodle. From this small sample, I would conclude that the poodle was the smartest. When I would sit on the sofa and read the newspaper, he would hop up on the cushion next to me, sitting upright as people and that breed do, and peer over my shoulder. I swear I think he was reading the paper, much as paperless people used to do to their paper-toting seatmates on subways before the arrival of the smartphone.

LEISURE EDITOR Heidi Sutton ADVERTISING DIRECTOR Kathryn Mandracchia DIR. OF MEDIA PRODUCTIONS Michael Tessler
So all right, I am a bit partisan. The conclusion that Lea’s study reaches is that dogs “are not smarter than they are supposed to be, given what they are.” Clive Wynne, director of the Canine Science Collaboratory at Arizona State University in Tempe and a dog lover, recognizes merit in Lea’s study. He explains that Lea is not putting dogs down but rather putting them in their proper context. What Wynne touts about dogs is their outstanding capacity for affection. Cats, I feel, are more aloof. So while Lea concludes that dogs are not particularly extraordinary, I would say that by being so affectionate toward humans, they have created the best possible lives for themselves. I once had a plumber working in my house who, eyeing my dog asleep on a pillow, told me, “In the next life I want to return as an American dog.” Now if that doesn’t show superior intelligence on the part of dogs and their ability to earn that kind of existence, I’m not sure what could reveal a higher IQ. Certainly our elected ofﬁcials are not nearly so endearing.
