The pile of donations from this year’s Kevin’s Holiday Angels Toy drive.

Toy drive still warming hearts of those in need By Kevin Redding kevin@tbrnewspapers.com

The spirit of giving was in full effect inside Phil’s Restaurant in Wading River Nov. 29, as toys of all shapes and sizes piled up, ready to be delivered to children in need. The large crowd of family, friends and community members gathered at the Cheersesque sports bar to donate toys to the Kevin Williams Foundation’s 11th annual “Kevin’s Holiday Angels” Toy Drive. Mike and Patti Williams started the foundation in 2002 as a reaction to the passing

of their 24-year-old son Kevin, who worked as a bonds salesman for Sandler O’Neill in Manhattan and was on the 104th floor of Tower Two when tragedy struck on Sept. 11, 2001. He was supposed to be married 10 weeks later. Patti Williams said that Kevin was “such a generous person” and always made others happy. “He was the kind of person that, when you walked into the room, he would give you this smile that made you feel like the most important person,” she said. Kevin’s childhood friend Brian Baumeister thinks that he would’ve loved how many lives

Turkey trot takes Shoreham Photos by Bill Landon

Clockwise from above, North Shore residents flocked to Shoreham to compete in the 36th annual Thanksgiving Day Races Nov. 24. BY BILL LANDON While some were busy thinking about what they’re thankful for, hundreds that flocked to Miller Avenue Elementary School, Shoreham were thinking about crossing the finish line. In cool, dry conditions, more than 400 athletes dashed through the 1-mile, 5K and 5-mile events during the 36th annual Thanksgiving Day Races. The gun for the main 5K event sounded at 8 a.m., and for the men, 2014 ShorehamWading River graduate Ryan Udvadia was the first-place finisher, with a time of 16 minutes, 39.99 seconds. He competes now for the University at Albany’s track-and-field and cross-country teams. The first female to cross the finish line was Maegan Gorman of Wading River in 20:38. Danelle Rose, a Miller Place freshman from Sound Beach, finished second for the women with a time of 20:42. Udvadia has competed in the event 13 times and was thankful for the race and the

weather during it. “Running this race is kind of a tradition,” he said. “But it’s fun to come out here and get a good workout.” A two-time All-State selection in cross country at Shoreham-Wading River, Udvadia still holds the school records in the 3,200-meter and 2-mile events. Proceeds, which came in the way of $15 preregistration and $20 day-of-the-event entry fees, went to the senior scholarship fund. This past June, $10,000 in scholarship money was granted to Shoreham-Wading River’s Class of 2015. In 2014, $11,500 was awarded. The total raised from this year’s race was not available by press time, but proceeds are combined with the annual July 4 ShorehamWading River Foot Races, to create the grand total given to graduates.

Lifelong fireman opposes Miller Place commissioner Current fire district leader is seeking fourth five-year term BY KeviN ReddiNg kevin@tbrnewspapers.com The heat is on at the Miller Place Fire District this month, as retired firefighter Guy Schneider challenges incumbent Carol Hawat in an upcoming commissioner vote. Hawat, recognized in April as EMT of the year by Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker (D-Mount Sinai), has held her position as one of five on the Board of Fire Commissioners since 2001. As her third five-year term comes to a close, she said she hopes to continue serving as commissioner and bring to the job her experience as a full-time EMT supervisor at Rocky Point Fire Department — a perspective that’s proven to be especially beneficial in Miller Place as 60 percent of the emergency calls to the fire district require medical care. Motor vehicle accidents and home injuries make up most of the calls to which volunteers respond.

Having been born and raised on Long Island in a family of police officers, Hawat said that helping people and working for the community has always been part of her life. In 2008, she helped initiate an Advanced Life Support program in the community, which has provided people with a set of lifesaving protocols that extends support until a victim receives full medical treatment at a hospital. Hawat feels she’s made a difference by bringing EMS to the table at the district and takes pride in the fact that the budget has been handled well and taxes haven’t been raised in years. “I just love what I do ... I want to continue providing quality care and safety to the people of Miller Place,” Hawat said. “This is where my children were raised and grew up. I have strong ties here and I like helping others. I feel like I have a purpose ... giving back to the community. It’s what I was raised to do.” She also stressed her urgency to put a stop to the rise in heroin overdoses on the North Shore. She said while Narcan, the opiate antidote used to treat overdoses, is supplied in the ambulances, she hopes to provide more awareness and training to schools in the future. Schneider has been in fire and rescue service for more than four decades, and at 64 years old he’s still responding and volunteering every day. He volunteered for 12 years as a firefighter at the Babylon Village Fire Department starting in 1970, served as a hull maintenance technician in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War between 1971 and 1975, and was at the Holtsville Fire Department briefly before working at FDNY Firehouse Engine 60 and Ladder 17 between 1984 and 2004.

He said he sustained some disabling breathing problems in the aftermath of the World Trade Center collapse on Sept. 11, 2001, and so he decided to slow down and move to Miller Place from Sound Beach. He’s been a volunteer at the Miller Place Fire Department ever since, mostly as “chauffeur,” driving the fire apparatus and getting the volunteers where they need to be. He said what pulls him out of bed — sometimes at 3 a.m. to a call — is that he wants to help people. “I’m still on the first engine to a fire,” Schneider said. “I’ve been to just about every fire in Miller Place since I’ve been here. Always first too. That’s me.” Schneider ran against and lost to Hawat in 2011 but said he’s running for commissioner this year because “it’s time for a change.” He believes strict term limits should be implemented to commissioners because after a while complacency has a tendency to kick in. “I want to try to get in there and spice things up,” Schneider said. “Right now we’re working with 27-year-old pumpers, which should’ve been taken out of service a long time ago. It’s gotten to the point where [the current commissioners] are holding on to all the old stuff, because they’ve been around for 15 or 20 years. We need someone with a little more finesse, to try to get in there and work things out.” He said he has great respect for Hawat and considers her a great EMT but wants to be more active within the district. “I love Carol, she’s great to work with, but it’s time to move on,” Schneider said. Hawat said that she doesn’t understand why Schneider has run against her twice when there were two open spots on the fiveperson board in the previous five years for which he didn’t run.

guy Schneider, above, will be taking on Carol Hawat, left, for the second time.

“I feel like I’m more qualified because of my experience in what I do in the fire department and I’d like to continue doing that ... it’s a service for the community,” Hawat said. “I know there’s equipment he feels the firemen aren’t getting and things like that, but it’s not true.” Josh Hagermann, Miller Place department chief, had good things to say about each candidate. “I think [Carol] has done a very good job ... she’s fair, helpful and has made sure the community is getting the best care,” Hagermann said. “And Guy is very active and he’s a very reliable apparatus driver for us. He’s got a very good firefighting background as well. So, we have two good candidates running for one position.” Community members can cast their votes Dec. 13 from 4 to 9 p.m. at the Miller Place firehouse, located at 12 Miller Place Road.

Your turn

Addiction is a family disease and, as a parent, you too must learn to cope, or you will lose yourself in the process. She has learned to no longer enable like she did in the past. She has also followed a dream. She moved away from her children to the warmth of Florida, and now has a lovely condo on a small waterway. While she still feels the pull of her children’s addictions, she has also started to feel some freedom. Freedom to feel the sunshine, enjoy a nice day out with friends and family she has near her. This was not even an option to her a year ago — just a dream. While her son was in Florida after we came up with a plan for him to seek outsideof-state rehabilitation, she met a woman who is the guardian angel for parents who send their kids to Florida for rehab. The other day, as I opened my Facebook feed, I saw a post. Linda checked in to the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County with that angel I spoke of. She attended her first task force meeting to help fight for positive changes in addiction services and housing in that area. She has grown exponentially over this past year. She needed to. She was sick of hiding, but didn’t know where to look for help. And she found it. All because of an article in a local newspaper.

Cancer center’s Adopt a Family program warms the heart by Rebecca anzel Opportunities for warming hearts abound during the holiday season and those who give tend to receive much more. Five years ago, when Linda Bily, cancer patient advocacy and community outreach director at Stony Brook Cancer Center, and others noticed some patients did not have family members to share the holidays with, she started the Adopt a Family program. The first year, 20 families were “adopted” by 20 departments, which donated gifts such as winter coats, new sneakers and gift cards for grocery stores and gas stations. This year, Bily estimates that 75 families will be adopted by departments and community groups. “This is a good thing for patients going through chemo because it’s one less thing they have to worry about,” Bily said. “The people that donate the gifts get as much out of it as the patients — and they always go above and beyond. It makes them feel good to do it.” Patients and their families are nominated by the nursing staff and social workers. The only requirements are that they receive treatment at the cancer center and are facing financial hardship.

‘Most of our patients want to pay their bills first and they put themselves last. It’s nice to put them first for once, and they’re so appreciative for it.’ — Alicia McArdle Alicia McArdle has been a social worker at the cancer center for two years and nominates families to participate in the program. She said what separates this program from others like it is that it includes cancer patients of all ages, not just children. “So many people are nominated, it’s unbelievable,” McArdle said. “It’s a way to give our patients joy during a difficult time, and it definitely brightens their days.” Once a patient agrees to participate he or she gives Bily a wish list. It contains items like a new pair of sweatpants, music, or gloves — never anything like a new Xbox or cellphone, Bily said “You wouldn’t believe how a new pair of sneakers and a really warm winter jacket can change someone’s life,” McArdle said. “It really helps because most of our patients want to pay their bills first and they put themselves last. It’s nice to put them first for once, and they’re so appreciative for it.” Only first names are shared, in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Bily said once a group has participated in the program, it almost always does so again. That’s true of the cancer center’s radiology department, which has adopted a family every year. Elizabeth Kramer said her 22-person department looks forward to the holiday tradition. “We’re all very fortunate and we want to help these people that are in need,” she said. “A lot of them cannot afford to buy gifts for their family, so we enjoy purchasing and wrapping presents for them.” Radiology is adopting a family of four this year — a mom, a dad and two children. Kramer said the father asked for music to relax and “zone out” while he receives chemo. Kramer added the radiology department always purchases a supermarket gift card as well.

In December 2014, Judith Mitchell, a mother of five was receiving radiation at the center to treat her breast cancer, and she needed help. She knew she would have trouble affording gifts such as clothes and shoes for her holiday presents for her children. Mitchell was asked by cancer center staff if she wanted to participate in the program. “The program was a blessing because there’s no way we could have done for these children what our adopters had done,” she said. “It’s nice to know that people are really willing to help others who cannot help themselves, because sometimes when you have cancer, it’s hard. My cancer did not affect me alone, it affected my whole family.” Business owners in the community also get involved. “What’s nice about this program is that it’s giving and it warms the heart,” Jennifer Scarlatos, co-owner of Toast Coffeehouse in Port Jefferson, said. “It’s such a beautiful experience being able to provide gifts and it gets your mind off yourself during the holiday season.” She participated in the program with her employees last year, and also helped her daughter’s fourth-grade class at Setauket Elementary School adopt a family. Teacher Eric Gustafson said it was a great opportunity to remind his students of the importance of giving — not just receiving. He remembered the children excitedly telling each other about gifts they picked out while they all wrapped the presents together. “It was such a fun day and the kids really got into it,” he said. “Once you put together everything they bought, it made for a pretty impressive pile, and it put us in the spirit of giving.” Gustafson encouraged other classrooms to participate, and Kramer added churches and other groups should consider it as well.

Leaders concerned by campaign rhetoric speak out, take action By Alex Petroski alex@tbrnewspapers.com The divisive and inflammatory nature of the 2016 presidential election has raised concerns across the country about Americans’ ability to “come together” now that the dust has begun to settle. One Suffolk County organization was concerned enough to send a letter to school districts with a warning for administrators and teachers. “We are concerned for the safety and well-being of the students of Suffolk County as we know you are as well,” the letter dated Nov. 10 from leaders of the Suffolk County Human Rights Commission and Anti-Bias Task Force read. “We are reaching out to ensure that all school climates are one where students feel safe and supported physically, emotionally and academically.” The Human Rights Commission has existed in Suffolk County since 1963 and it focuses on investigating claims of bias and discrimination. Rabbi Steven Moss has been the chairman of the organization for more than 20 years. He said they were compelled to write the letter in light of incidents, both local and across the country, that have been reported in the aftermath of Election Day. “I’m sure [people] realize bul-

lying has occurred before the election and will continue onward,” Moss said in a phone interview. He said most incidents reported to the commission thus far have involved elementary-level students making references to deporting classmates. Moss said he believes incidents involving younger students can easily be traced back to conversations at home, and because of this the commission plans to send a similar letter to local Parent Teacher Associations in the hopes of spreading the conversation beyond classrooms. At Northport High School swastikas were drawn in spray paint on the walls of a theater storage room this week, according to Suffolk County Police. Moss said it is important for school administrators to act decisively and harshly with incidents like these, even if they fall short of constituting a crime, and Northport-East Northport Superintendent Robert Banzer is taking the action seriously. “Our primary objective as a school district is to educate our students in a safe and respectful environment,” Banzer said in an email. He added an investigation is ongoing. “The recent events in our high school have challenged us and make us realize that, although our students participate in many opportu-

And he was such an unbelievable athlete.” Because of their son’s love for sports, the Williams devoted their organization to sending children, who couldn’t afford it otherwise, to sports camps or register them to play on teams in the area as a way to “do something with his love.” Five years in, they received a call from Long Island Youth Mentoring, one of the many organizations they worked alongside, which asked them to help a local family that had recently been evicted from their home. The Williams took care of them and made sure the family had a holiday that year.

nities to build a respectful and safe environment, work remains. Our high school principal Dan Danbusky is meeting with the student leaders to generate ideas about how best to address not only the recent incident but to help the school community further enhance dignity, respect and acceptance for all.” Banzer also said the administration plans to meet with local

It wasn’t long before they started helping other local families in similar situations. This led the Williams’ to start the toy drive, which targets the wishes and needs of children in the area — some of which range from video game consoles to clothes to even simpler needs. Patti Williams said one family had children asking for towels to sleep on because they didn’t have beds. This year, 28 families were on the list and the pile of donations at the restaurant grew taller by the minute. “Our community has been there for us since the beginning ... we are just so blessed,” Patti Williams said. “When you’ve had such a tragic loss in your life, you have to make a decision. You can’t just stay in that dark place. You have to decide — and it’s not easy — what to do to make life better for others. Then that becomes your focus and really helps you through the grieving process.” Mike Williams said he couldn’t believe how many people showed up to the toy drive this year, especially on a dreary, wet evening. When you surround yourself with loving people, he said, that’s what happens. “We’re reaching out and trying to help people,” he said. “We wake up in the morning and say ‘All right, how can we turn this into something good?’” On Christmas Eve, he recalls showing up to the residence of a family in dire straits. In one room, there was a metal bunk bed for the kids, similar to what would be seen in a military confine. The floor was covered in clothes and was nearly impossible to walk on. They asked the mother what she was planning on doing for Christmas dinner, and when she said nothing, the Williams’ assured her the family would have a proper dinner. When they returned the next day, Mike Williams said he was in shock.

religious leaders to gather their input and insights and assess programs to help the district meet its goals of being a more inclusive school community. Port Jefferson Village organized a peaceful vigil that was held Nov. 20 at the Village Center designed to show community support for “all segments of society,” according to a press release. “In response to the fear and hurt felt by so many, Suffolk County needed the opportunity to show everyone our support and commitment to ensuring their freedoms, and to reassure them that they have a safe space here,” Cindy Morris, a Suffolk County resident and co-organizer of the event said in a statement. Moss said he is hoping much of the inflammatory conversation during the election season, especially from the campaign of President-elect Donald Trump (R), was rhetoric designed to dominate news cycles and spike polling numbers and eventually it will die down. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) shared many of the same concerns as Moss and the Human Rights Commission. He announced several actions Nov. 20 to protect civil rights and combat hate crimes in the state, including the creation of a State Police unit to investigate such crimes. He also plans to ad-

vance legislation that would expand protections of the state’s human rights law to all students, and to establish a legal defense fund to ensure immigrants have access to representation regardless of status. “New York is, and will always be, a place of acceptance, inclusion and a bastion of hope for all people,” Cuomo said in a statement. “We will never allow fear and intolerance to tear at the fabric of who we are.” The commission’s letter also called on school districts to share programs they already had in place designed to promote unity and togetherness. Some of those include a Gay/Straight Alliance, the Anti-Defamation League’s No Place for Hate campaign, the No One Sits Alone Campaign and suicide awareness and prevention programs, to name a few. Banzer indicated Northport has several programs aimed at promoting inclusive school communities through unity and respect, and the district plans to continue that effort going forward. Those who have experienced incidents of hate or discrimination are encouraged to reach out to the Human Rights Commission by calling 631-853-5480 or emailing humanrights@suffolkcountyny.gov.

Above, Mike Williams, his daughter kelly and wife Patti host a toy drive in memory of son and brother kevin. left, Wayne and Patty Fellrath volunteer their time to help. “The beds were made like West Point cadets made them,” he said. “There wasn’t anything on the floors. The woman looked 30 years younger, and I remembering thinking ‘look at the transition we made with just one little family by caring. They were thrown away, and thought nobody cared.’” It’s Patti Williams’ hope that the families they’ve helped get back on track, get out of their own dark places and “pay it forward” to others in need. She said while she and her husband are the orchestrators of the toy drive, there’s a huge community effort that goes into the donations, and wrapping and delivering them. The Wading River Fire Department donates the community room to serve as giftwrapping space for the 60 to 70 volunteer wrappers, and Wayne Fellrath, a retired New

York City firefighter, grows out his white beard and delivers toys dressed as Santa, with his wife Patty dressing as an elf. The Fellraths said it’s heartwarming they can bring joy to children who aren’t well enough to leave their homes and see Santa. “Patti [Williams] called me up and asked ‘Did you get your flu shot this year?’” Wayne Fellrath recalled. “I said ‘Yeah, what’s wrong?’ She said the doctor told her in order to have a visit from Santa, everybody had to have a flu shot. And I was never happier in my life to have gotten a flu shot.” Among the large pile of donated goods children in need can look forward to is a 150-piece art set, basketballs, bedding, an XBox One and a Power Rangers toy set. On the morning of Dec. 17, the pile will be brought to the firehouse to be wrapped and shipped out.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the resolution, a summary of which is published herewith, has been adopted by the Board of Education of the Mount Sinai Union Free School District, Suffolk County, New York, on November 16, 2016, and the validity of the obligations authorized by such resolution may be hereafter contested only if such obligations were authorized for an object or purpose for which said School District is not authorized to expend money, or if the provisions of law which should have been complied with as of the dates of publication of this notice were not substantially complied with, and an action, suit or proceeding contesting such validity is commenced within twenty days after the dates of publication of this notice, or such obligations were authorized in violation of the provisions of the Constitution. * * * SUMMARY OF REFUNDING BOND RESOLUTION DATED NOVEMBER 16, 2016. The following is a summary of a Refunding Bond resolution adopted by the Board of Education of the Mount Sinai Union Free School District, on November 16, 2016. REFUNDING BOND RESOLUTION DATED NOVEMBER 16, 2016. A RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE PURSUANT TO SECTION 90.10 OR SECTION 90.00 OF THE LOCAL FINANCE LAW OF REFUNDING BONDS OF THE MOUNT SINAI UNION FREE SCHOOL DISTRICT, SUFFOLK COUNTY, NEW YORK, TO BE DESIGNATED “SCHOOL DISTRICT REFUNDING (SERIAL) BONDS”, AND PROVIDING FOR OTHER MATTERS IN RELATION THERETO. WHEREAS, the Mount Sinai Union Free School District, Suffolk County, New York (the “School District”) issued, on March 15, 2007, an aggregate principal amount of $2,056,670 School District (Serial) Bonds, 2007, dated March 15, 2007 (the “2007 Bonds”) and of which there are $975,000 aggregate principal amount maturing on March 15 in each of the following years and amounts; Year 2017 2018 2019

Amount $150,000 150,000 150,000

Year 2020 2021 2022

Amount $175,000 175,000

WHEREAS, it appears that it would be in the public interest to refund all or a portion of the outstanding $825,000 principal amount of the 2007 Bonds maturing in the years 2017 through 2022 (the “2007 Refunded Bonds”) by the issuance of refunding bonds pursuant to Section 90.00 or Section 90.10 of the Local Finance Law; and WHEREAS, the School District issued, on October 11, 2007, an aggregate principal amount of $10,000,000 Public Improvement (Serial) Bonds, Series 2007 B, dated March 10, 2010 (the “2010 Bonds”), and of which there are presently $950,000 aggregate principal amount maturing on February 15 in each of the following years and amounts; Year Amount Year Amount 2017 $50,000 2024 $75,000 2018 50,000 2025 75,000 2019 50,000 2026 75,000 2020 50,000 2027 75,000 2021 75,000 2028 75,000 2022 75,000 2029 75,000 2023 75,000 2030 WHEREAS, it appears that it would be in the public interest to refund all or a portion of the outstanding $900,000 principal amount of the 2010 Bonds maturing in the years 2017 through 2030 (the “2010 Refunded Bonds”) by the issuance of refunding bonds pursuant to Section 90.00 or Section 90.10 of the Local Finance Law; and WHEREAS, it appears that each of the refundings of the 2007 Refunded Bonds and 2010 Refunded Bonds (collectively, the “Refunded Bonds”), will result in present value savings in debt service as required by Section 90.00 or Section 90.10 of the Local Finance Law;. The refunding bond resolution authorizes refunding bonds in the amount necessary to refund the Refunded Bonds. The refunding bonds are proposed to be issued in the aggregate amount of $1,640,000, but this is an estimate. The amount of refunding bonds authorized to be issued is the amount necessary to complete the refunding as described in the refunding financial plan included in the refunding bond resolution, but this amount may not exceed $1,900,000. The refunding bonds will be issued only if the State Comptroller confirms that the issuance of the refunding bonds will save the School District money, computed on a present value basis, after taking into account all costs of issuing the refunding bonds. A complete copy of the foregoing resolution, with attachments, is available for inspection during normal business hours at the office of the School District Clerk. Dated:

Rocky Point Middle School eighth-graders Sophia Weik, left, and Maya Menon, right, collected hundred of nonperishable food items during the food drive the two coordinated.

Students organize food drive Rocky Point Middle School eighth-graders Maya Menon and Sophia Weik have a strong passion for community service and giving to others, so the pair decided to coordinate a school food drive for the less fortunate members of their community. Over the course of the week and a half drive, students and staff members donated hundreds of nonperishable food items. To ensure that the donations met all of the recipients’ needs, the students asked that each grade level focus on a different meal.

Sixth-graders were asked to donate breakfast items, seventh-graders donated lunch items and eighth-graders focused on dinner items. Maya and Sophia not only coordinated the drive but also collected all of the donations from throughout the building during their lunch periods. The donations will be delivered to the food banks at St. Louis de Montfort Church in Sound Beach and St. Anthony’s Church in Rocky Point.

I am thankful for...:

Suffolk County Legislator William “Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport) holds up signs from a peace rally in Northport.

Unity and vigilance have never been more important Last week, in response to growing tensions and reprehensible actions following the presidential election, leaders from across the Huntington area, including elected officials from both parties, gathered for a press conference to denounce hate and ignorance. The Suffolk County Human Rights Commission also sent a letter to school districts warning teachers and administrators to be on the lookout for incidents of bullying that could be motivated by hate. Port Jefferson Village hosted a peaceful vigil as a symbol of unity for community members of every conceivable background last week. While the editorial staff is slightly concerned events like this are necessary in 2016, we are encouraged that leaders throughout our North Shore communities and across party lines are being proactive in trying to send a clear message: America is a land of opportunity and acceptance for people of all races, genders, nationalities, sexual orientations and religions, and they want it to remain that way. Incidents of hate have occurred across the county, state and country in recent weeks. “One of these incidents is one too many,” Leg. Rob Trotta (R-Fort Salonga) said during the Huntington event. “It’s our responsibility to speak out against it and educate our youth of the ramifications of such actions.” We agree wholeheartedly with Trotta, and plan to do everything we can to continue shining a light on incidents, both positive and negative, relating to this topic, going forward. We’ll need our readers to help us by doing the same.

This Dec. 13, any resident of Miller Place Fire District is eligible to vote for a commissioner. Why not make this the year to choose a new person for the job? The current commissioner has held her position for the last 10 years, and this year, my vote is going to someone who is no stranger to fire service. Guy Schneider volunteered in Babylon Village for 12 years,

Holtsville for two and worked for the FDNY from 1984 until his retirement in 2004. Currently, Mr. Schneider has volunteered his time in the Miller Place Fire Department community for the last 11 years. Let’s give this neighbor an opportunity where he can utilize his expertise. So this Dec. 13th, don’t forget to go to the firehouse and vote for a change.

Residents can vote from 4 to 9 p.m. at the Miller Place firehouse at 12 Miller Place Road. The residents of Miller Place are fortunate to have the skill and dedication of a lifelong firefighter: Guy Schneider. Why not elect Guy Schneider for commissioner?

Elizabeth Ozol Miller Place

A question of double standards In Reverend Ronald Stelzer’s Nov. 24 letter (in The Port Times Record), he expresses relief that Hillary Clinton was not elected, claiming that her political career has been fraught with “corruption, [and] mendacity.” While I will not say that Clinton was a perfect candidate, I think it’s important to point out the double standard set up by these remarks. Recently, Donald Trump met with British politician Nigel Farage, and encouraged Farage to oppose offshore wind farms, as they would be detrimental to the view from Trump’s golf course. This blending of personal interests and politics is exactly what Clinton was criticized for, and it is important to note that Trump seems to be just as willing to use his newfound political standing to bolster his own interests. There is a danger, I think, in

supporting personalities rather than principles, and when we unequivocally support people like Trump, we never correct that problem. I also want to question Reverend Stelzer’s discussion of what he calls “political correctness.” He claims that it is has led to “disdain for the traditional beliefs and morals … of America.” The problem is that “political correctness” is a phrase used by right wing groups to dismiss as merely “political” the idea that we should encourage respect towards all people. I’m sure that the reverend, being a person of faith, would agree with the idea that we must treat all people with respect, so I find it hard to understand what objection remains to this principle after the misleading “politically correct” description is removed. This fight to put everyone on an equal playing field is what

makes America great, and I would argue that many of Trump’s comments about women, Muslims and people of color have worked against this goal of reaching equality. In fact, they have made many Americans feel that they don’t have a seat at the table and are not part of our conversation. I recognize that many are thrilled by Trump’s election, and I truly hope that he ends up being the most honest and inclusive president we’ve had yet. But I also hope we can all understand why some Americans are wary and even scared. These people are not opposed to America and its founding moral principles, they simply want to be welcome to participate in the process of making America an even better place for all.

OpiniOn The tweeted verbal thunderbolts of the next president

V

erbs await like a collection of colors, quivering, shaking and jumping on their palettes to define and describe the unfolding scene. What verbs will we use to describe the future president of the United States, whose name itself can be a verb? Well, for starters, he tweets. We know that fact through his candidacy and it’s a pattern that continues now that he is assembling a cabinet and as he awaits his turn as president. His By Daniel Dunaief tweets represent his direct-to-thepeople message, cutting out the middle man of the media. As with pharmaceutical companies that market their products directly

D. None of the above

to consumers, sometimes Trump’s tweet messages, which crackle like thunderbolts from his fingers, should come with a warning. For example, “Don’t operate heavy equipment while listening to these tweets, which may cause shortness of breath,” or, “If you find yourself shouting approval or disapproval in response to these tweets, try not to read them in church, in a library or any place where shouting could cause a crisis.” When he communicates with the populace, with American leaders or with foreign leaders, what verbs will fill the canvas? He often seems to warn, to threaten and to demand. Maybe he believes American greatness starts with a tough president who insists America and its interests go directly to the front of any line. In recent days, he has weighed in on the discussion about the election, claiming widespread voter fraud prevented him from winning the popular vote “beauty contest.”

Through his tweets, he also leveled attacks against reporters he derides for disagreeing with him. I get it: As an agent of change, Trump may feel it’s his job not to highlight everything that’s going well with the country or to shout encouragement. That, he may believe, would be like telling a kid who has struck out continuously that he’s having a great game. Shifting from the visuals of colors on a page to the sounds at a pep rally, will the Trump presidency repeat similar notes with a single tone? Will he continue to castigate, to criticize, to claim and to attack? Those are just a few of the verbs that describe the approach Candidate Trump took on the contentious campaign trail. At some point, does President Trump become like a strong-willed character in a compelling novel? Will his experiences enable him to make a transition to becoming a president who emits a different tone and who leads to a symphony of greatness that comes

from every part of the country? Will the cajoling, the criticizing and the arguing transition to educating, inspiring and elevating? Yes, I know his approach and policies may help educate more Americans and may help bridge the gap between the testing levels American students reach compared with students in other nations. Certainly, as Trump demonstrated during his campaign stops, he can and has rallied people. What actions, what verbs, will describe the way Americans and, indeed, people around the world, react to his message? As an agent of change after the polished rhetoric of President Obama, Trump may not want to compete and, indeed, may sprint away from the pontifications his predecessor proffered. That, however, doesn’t preclude Trump from the kinds of verbs we hope we can employ to fill the pages of the next four years. Will he encourage, empower and reassure Americans about the government that supports, protects and serves them?

5 percent of those who apply are selected.” He went off the next morning with the completed paperwork and the two of us promptly forgot about the whole matter. That is, until the next spring when he came home and announced, still unsure what he had gotten us into, that he had been selected. I was happy at the prospect of travel in our future. With the benefit of hindsight, you know that by 1965, we were in a hot war and I will tell you that many physicians were drafted out of their specialty training and sent to Vietnam as general medical officers. Some of them never returned. We, meanwhile, now had one child and a second on the way when we were sent to Texas. It was not Germany or Japan, it wasn’t even California or New Jersey, as we had requested when asked by the Air Force, but it was — just by dumb luck — stateside, which meant we could be together. In fact, we had a house to live in, our first, with a washer and dryer, and each child had his own room. Wichita Falls is not a particularly

beautiful place, as far as scenery goes. There were no real trees, little grass, no bodies of water and only an occasional bit of mesquite shrub blowing across the brown dirt. But it was heaven for us, and we were thankful to be there for the duration of the two years. We learned to eat chicken fried steak and barbecued beef on a bun, and before too long our third child was on the way. It was on the base that we met our friends, who were serving under similar circumstances. He was a pediatrician who worked alongside my husband at the hospital, and with his wife they also eventually had three children, went home and started their professional lives together. But we stayed in touch, as I have explained, and they have rejoined my family with lots of conversation and laughter. Old friends are treasures because they are irreplaceable. We are older now, quite a bit older, and we might not have recognized each other immediately on the street. But the basic persons that we were are intact.

Old friendships are golden

T

here were two extra place settings during our Thanksgiving weekend. They were for a couple we met when my husband and her husband were serving at Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, Texas, some 50 years ago — a golden anniversary of sorts. The idea that we met half-a-century ago and have maintained our connection is astonishing and lovely By Leah S. Dunaief because we were quite fond of them then and are happy to still be friends now. When they left the service, about a year before we did, they returned to their home state of North Carolina, and we, of course, returned to New York. Over the years, we have kept up sporadically through Christmas cards stuffed with letters about our lives.

Between you and me

Our family wound up at Sheppard because we made the right decision for the wrong reasons — as so often happens in life. Just after my husband began his internship at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, he came home one evening somewhat puzzled. “Look,” he showed me paperwork, “if I agree to enter this lottery called the Berry Plan, I will be allowed to finish my residency in the specialty I choose, but then I will have to go into the military for two years. The benefit is that I will not be drafted out of my training before I finish, but I will delay starting my practice two years while I am serving Uncle Sam. What should I do?” “Do it, do it!” I urged. “They will send us to Germany or Japan and we will get to see the world.” I yearned to travel and we had not had the chance or the means. The year was 1963, and aside from a few military advisers in Vietnam, there was no war involving the United States. There was a draft but we were at peace. “OK,” my husband said, still seeming dubious. “But only about

Shoreham raises LI trophy for third straight season Chris Gray’s cutbacks, three touchdowns steal the show BY BILL LANDON What is Shoreham-Wading River’s recipe for success? A rapid running game and domineering defense. So it was no surprise that as the football team’s star running back Chris Gray swiveled around Seaford defenders to find the end zone three times on Stony Brook University’s LaValle Stadium field Nov. 27, the Wildcats would make history, becoming

Shoreham-WR 20 Seaford 10

the fourth team to win a third straight Long Island title with a 20-10 win over the previously unbeaten Vikings. “I give all the credit to my line,” Gray said. “I do the easy part — just running — so it’s great teamwork. Having [Ethan Wiederkehr] on the end of the line is just a blessing. It makes my job a hundred times easier, and he’s just a hell of a player and a hell of a competitor.” Wiederkehr was a force to be reckoned with on both sides of the line of scrimmage, as the senior tight end’s blocks led to holes for his classmate up and down the field. He also tackled Seaford’s quarterback for a 13yard loss, and was involved in nine tackles. Despite compiling a 34-2 record over the past three years, Shoreham did face its share of adversity, and dropped two of its first five games this season. And the team found itself behind early in the first quarter of the Long Island game. After a dip-and-dunk passing attack, Seaford drove the ball to Shoreham’s 6-yard line, but couldn’t penetrate the Wildcats’ defense. Facing 4th and 3, Seaford chose to kick the field goal with 7:42 left, and split the uprights for an early lead. On the ensuing kickoff, Seaford attempted an onside kick, which caught the Wildcats by surprise. The Vikings recovered a short kick and went back to work at the Shoreham-Wading River 47-yard line. Despite the successful move, ShorehamWading River’s defensive unit stood its ground, denying Seaford any points. During a sustained drive in which the Vikings went to the air to try to move the

Miller briefly thought about running the ball out of the end zone but took a knee, and the Wildcats’ offense went back to work at their own 20-yard line. “I told them that we have a chance at our third consecutive Long Island championship,

we’ve got a shot at the Rutgers Cup and we have a chance to make Long Island football history,” assistant coach Hans Wiederkehr said he told the team prior to the game. “Other teams try year after year, and don’t make it. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” It was only a matter of time before Gray broke through the line with a spin-andrun move, and he did so just before being forced out of bounds at the 11-yard line.
