Town

Teenaged twins stage cleanup at Cedar Beach BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Walking along Cedar Beach Aug. 2, one child’s foot scuffed along something that wasn’t rock or sand. Lifting it out, Sean Hoag and his father Benjamin looked down and saw a small straw. Sean sticks it in his bucket. After walking around for 10 minutes, his small bucket is nearly full to the brim with everything from pieces of plastic to cigarettes to bottle caps. Over two days, young people like Sean helped dig out just under 8,000 pieces of litter from Cedar Beach, according to Cayla and Iris Rosenhagen, two 14-year-old twins from Selden who helped start the beach cleanup they dubbed Beach Bucket Brigade. From when they were around 10 years old, the girls would strike out on their own to do cleanups at their local parks and beaches, but on Aug. 2 and 3, the environmentally-minded sisters took it to the next level, hosting their own Beach Bucket Brigade to help clear Mount Sinai’s premier town beach of garbage and debris. They had planned the event for little more than two months ago. “We really love wildlife. We’ve always been interested in conservation,� said Cayla. “We’ve been interested in beach cleanups in the past, and we’ve done some ourselves, so we wanted to find a way to reach other community members.� Both Rosenhagen sisters were involved in all parts of the project, from collecting garbage to showing a breakdown of all the trash they collected after the fact. “Wherever we go here, there’s litter everywhere,� Iris said. “So, it’s really a beautification project, to help the environment and help the animals.� The 14-year-old pointed out that just in the first few minutes of holding their event, they al-

ready had many families walking around doing their part, adding, “So it’s not just us.� The girls reached out to Town of Brookhaven town officials to help get everything set, including Brookhaven Councilwoman Jane Bonner (R-Rocky Point), who said she was more than happy to oblige. “This was all on their own, and they met with Councilman [Kevin LaValle (R-Selden)] with their own agenda, their own meeting,� Bonner said. “They designed everything, all on their own.� From a young age, the Rosenhagen twins have been infatuated with nature, especially animals, and among those, especially birds. Their mother, Raina, said before the girls could talk, they would make animal noises instead. “They had the idea, and I just said run with it,� she said. “They took a chance on it, and we’re very pleasantly surprised it’s been well received.� Within a few minutes of searching, participants were already back to the main tent, handing over buckets full of debris and trash. For each bucket of trash they returned, they were given a raffle ticket in which they could win any number of ecologically-sourced and recycled toys and products. In addition to the buckets, each bucketeer was given a bingo card, where they could strike out a patch for each different type of material they found on the beach. The day was meant to incentivize and make enjoyable the act of taking care of one’s surroundings. Local mermaid actors, Mist and Marina, came to Cedar Beach to wish the cleanup well and give “mermaid kisses and starfish wishes� to the young people who helped clean the beach.

like plastic straws and other plastic items are either ingested by marine life or otherwise harm them by being caught in gills or other parts of sea creatures. On Friday, Aug. 2, around 60 volunteers collected 3,827 pieces of litter, a majority of which was plastic, glass and cigarette butts. The following day, volunteers collected 3,885 pieces of litter, even more of which was plastic but also a heavier amount of paper products. The sisters’ dad, Craig, said his daughters have managed to make him even more environmentally-minded than he already was, and have even volunteered to help set up another beach cleanup at Sunken Meadow State Park for him and his company. “Most of this is just homegrown,� the father said. “They just care so much about the animals and, obviously, the planet.� This is only the beginning for the Beach Bucket Brigade, with them already advertising additional cleanups at the beach Aug. 29 with what’s called the Beach Bucket Brigade’s Books at the Beach that involves a story time for young kids under the age of 10 then heading out to again clean the beach of litter. “In your head, you know there’s something you can do,� Iris said.

Town

Ferraro looks to unseat Romaine in upcoming election BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM For Will Ferraro, a Selden resident running for Town of Brookhaven supervisor in elections this fall, his campaign is about making solutions. “I’m running for working class and working poor people who feel like this current administration isn’t listening to them,” he said. Ferraro said he is campaigning on a platform of fixing and repairing town roads as well as addressing issues with the town’s recycling system and the Brookhaven landfill. “There have been roads that haven’t been paved in years. People are sick of a supervisor who just points the finger to the highway superintendent,” he said. “On the recycling issue, he points to China and says there is nothing wrong with the landfill. My campaign is about solutions.” Ferraro and Ed Romaine (R), who is finishing his third term as supervisor, will look to secure a four-year term in the upcoming elections, a result of Brookhaven residents voting last year to add term limits to three per seat, but also double the term length for the town supervisor and other positions like the highway superintendent.

State

The challenger was against the increase in term length and co-funded Brookhaven Action

Network, which helped organize and lead the “Vote No on Prop 1” campaign against the terms extensions. Despite being ultimately unsuccessful, it proved to be a motivating factor for Ferraro’s decision to run. This will be Ferraro’s first time running for elected office, though he says his experience working in Albany as a legislative analyst for the New York State Assembly has helped in the transition. “You don’t really know what to expect until you’ve actually done it,” he said. “You’re out there on your own.” If elected, Ferraro said he would restore curbside pickup of recyclable glass on a monthly basis, make road infrastructure the top budget priority and create a task force that would expand air quality and toxicology tests in areas surrounding the landfill. “People feel like their concerns are not being heard,” he said. “This town and administration is run by one party.” Ferraro, who grew up in Port Jefferson Station, works for the New York City administration for children’s services, has a bachelor’s degree in government and politics from St. John’s University and a master’s degree in public poli-

cy from Stony Brook University. So far, the Selden resident acknowledged he has raised far less than Romaine in political donations, but said he hopes to raise more than $100,000 for his campaign. Ferraro acknowledges that Romaine has more campaign contributions but hopes that residents will take to his message. “You have to go out there and connect with them. I want to show them how passionate I am about this community,” the Selden resident said. “This administration has not been challenged — I’m not afraid to go after his [Romaine’s] record.” Ferraro said the feedback and responses he and staffers have gotten from residents have been positive. “Knocking on doors in neighborhoods you see the level of frustration residents have toward the current administration,” he said. “We have people that really believe in our message and want to see change and believe that time is now.” Ferraro believes Romaine can be beaten. “I will provide leadership and a new beginning for the town — I want people to understand that I will be a candidate that answers to residents,” he said. “And I will call out what needs to be called out.”

Long Islanders big on reviving lost ladybugs BY DONNA DEEDY DONNA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

Who doesn’t love a ladybug? Everyone seems to hold at least a certain amount of affection for the insect. So, people might find the news somewhat heartbreaking: Certain species of the polka-dotted bug are threatened and nearly extinct in the Northeastern United States. Scientists say they don’t know precisely how or why the ladybug population has declined so rapidly in recent decades or what impact it will ultimately have on the ecosystem, but they’re asking the public to assist with their efforts to both search for the bug to document the population and to help revive the species by purchasing insects to set free. “It’s a now or never,” said Leslie Ladd Allee, an entomologist from The Lost Ladybug Project, an affiliate of Cornell University. “If citizens act as scientists, they can help.” If you see a ladybug, people are asked to simply upload a photo of it to The Lost Ladybug Project’s website or its app, called LLP. If you don’t see any on your own land, the project organizers consider that “zero” is still important to report. Searching can be

done from May to October, with June, July and August being the best time frame. Over the last eight years, the project has gathered more than 40,000 pictures of different species of the ladybug from every state in the U.S. and parts of Canada and Mexico. The data is providing researchers with a more complete understanding of what’s going on. What they’re seeing is a rise in foreign species of the insect, such as the Asian ladybug, while some native species were feared to be eliminated, according to Dan Gilrein, an entomologist with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County. “The New York state insect is the ninespotted lady beetle — some people call these ladybugs which is fine, too — that was once common in the state, but no longer,” he said. Researchers initially learned that the top three most common species of ladybugs, the nine-spotted, two-spotted and transverse, were no longer found on Long Island, or New York state or New England. Then in 2011, during a Lost Ladybug event sponsored by the Peconic Land Trust at Quail Hill Farm in Amagansett, volunteer participant Peter Priolo found a nine-spotted ladybug

living happily on a sunflower. Kathy Kennedy, senior outreach manager for Peconic Land Trust, said that she’s been sponsoring a search as a citizen science activity every summer since then to connect people with nature and raise awareness about the

decline in native species. “The trust runs Quail Hill Farm organically, which we think helps to actively steward the home population of the nine-spotted variety of ladybugs,” Kennedy said. Scientists with the ladybug project since 2011 have been raising offspring from the Amagansett colony in a lab in Ithaca. For the last few years, they’ve been selling the bugs to people in the Northeast. They hope to revive the species the same way wolf populations were reestablished in Yellowstone National Park. So far, 60 people have released ladybugs on Long Island through the program. There have been 16 locations on Long Island’s North Shore. Families and youth groups can purchase ladybug restoration kits for $50 plus shipping from The Lost Ladybug Project. Allee said that the project loses money on each transaction but wants to keep the price affordable to encourage participation. The Lost Ladybug Project is supported by donations, sales and grants from the National Science Foundation. Allee said the project is underfunded, but the importance LADYBUGS Continued on A7

Jewish War Veterans help their fellow former soldiers BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Members of one veterans post are not letting diminishing membership stand in their way when it comes to helping former soldiers. The Col. Mickey Marcus Post 336 of the Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America regularly collects donations to help veterans. In the last few months, the group raised money to sponsor three barbecues at the Long Island Veterans Home — one in August and two in September — along with a September golf outing for the home. Norman Weitz, post commander, said many of the members volunteer at the veterans home, and while the post has contributed funds in the past, including a $5,000 donation in 2017, this is the first time they are sponsoring events. Fred Sganga, executive director of the Long Island Veterans Home at Stony Brook University,

said the post’s contributions are valued. “Their generosity has a direct impact on the quality of life of those veteran residents we are so honored to serve each and every day,” he said. Since October 2017, the vets have contributed approximately $16,000 to causes dedicated to helping U.S. veterans, according to Weitz. In addition to the veterans home, the Col. Mickey Marcus Post 336, which meets in Centereach, has donated to various organizations including Paws of War, the Suffolk County United Veterans, and Operation Remember, a campaign spearheaded by county Legislator Kara Hahn (D-Setauket) to update memorials in Setauket, Stony Brook and Port Jefferson to include those who served in the Gulf wars. When it comes to donation dollars, Weitz and Barry Kopeloff, junior vice commander and chaplain, credit member Stan Feltman, 93, for enabling the group to donate as much as

Suffolk police expand language access services BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Suffolk County police are trying to use digital conferencing technology to better communicate with those who are hard of hearing and speech impaired. “This announcement is about making our department more accessible and inclusive to the communities we serve,” County Executive Steve Bellone (D) said at a press conference July 31. “It is a top priority.” The department will be using the service, Language Line Insight Video Interpreting, which will allow officers to instantly connect with an interpreter who can assist in communicating with hard of hearing or speech impaired individuals in American Sign Language during a traffic stop, home visit or other emergency. “The days of having to wait for an interpreter to arrive on the scene and communicating through pen and paper — those days are over in Suffolk County,” Bellone said. Stu Cameron, chief of department, said this new addition will help close the loop in communications when officers are on the scene. Typically, if a deaf or hard of hearing person needs assistance, officers rely on pen and paper or they call a sign language interpreter to the scene or the local precinct. This can be a lengthy process and Cameron

said he feels by adding this app to the officers’ tablets, they will be more effective in assisting those individuals. “Not only will our patrol cars have this capability, but our investigative units and detectives will have this as well,” he said. “ ... We can get information very rapidly without having to go back and forth.” Geraldine Hart, Suffolk police commissioner, said more than a year ago the department began outfitting vehicles with portal tablets to give officers immediate access to language access services. “There are millions of people who communicate in sign language, making it the fourth-most used language in the U.S.,” the police commissioner said. “While we teach our recruits basic sign language and ways to communicate with deaf or hard of hearing people — we want to do more.” Similarly, last year the department launched a text 911 program in an effort to help those with hearing and/or speech impairments. The implementation of the new tablets is part of a three-year capital project, officials said. Currently, the department is in the second year of the project and has 155 tablets installed in patrol cars. Cameron said he expects by the end of next year to have all patrol cars equipped with the devices and have more than 450 tablets in use.

they do. “He’s an amazing individual,” Weitz said. Feltman can be seen every day outside the Middle Island Walmart selling poppies to raise money for his fellow veterans. Weitz said Feltman, at times, has collected up to $1,800 a month, and while many give a single dollar or two to the veteran, others sometimes give more. “One lady said here’s an extra $30 just for you, and Stan is independent, so he just throws that money back in the pot,” Weitz said. Kopeloff said when it comes time to donate money, post members suggest organizations and then the group votes on whether or not to do so. While many have heard of the Veterans of Foreign Wars or the American Legion, there are those who are unfamiliar with the Jewish War Veterans. “We’d like people to understand what we do for the veterans, what we do for the community,” said Weitz. Members of the post, which was originally called the Three Village Post 336, meet at the New Village Community Center in Centereach once a month. While there are more than 100 members who live in various areas in Brookhaven and even

LADYBUGS

Continued from A5 of the mission keeps the people involved motivated to continue. “There are many kinds or species of lady beetles,” Gilrein said. “Some kinds of lady beetles are black with red spots, some have other colors like orange or yellow.” Some feed on aphids, some specialize on pests like mites, mealybugs or scale insects, he said. Many are considered beneficial, including

outside the town, Weitz said they may get around 20 members who can show up. The post is always looking for new members, and like similar veterans groups, have no younger members who served after the Vietnam War. “After Vietnam, it’s hard to get them because they’re young, and they’re working,” said Kopeloff, who is also on the Jewish Committee on Scouting. Kopeloff said during Scout Sabbaths, when Eagle Scouts visit synagogues, he will ask if anyone in the congregation is interested in the post. Weitz and Kopeloff said members can be anyone from the Jewish faith that have served with any of the military branches of the United States or any allied nations. He said everyone has something important to contribute. “The veterans that are coming home today from the Gulf War, from Afghanistan, are more attuned to helping veterans, and I think this would be a great plus,” Weitz said.

What is being done about guns

A breakdown of current legislation on the gun debate BY DONNA DEEDY DONNA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Mass shootings and gun violence have rocked the nation, leaving people to ask the question: What can be done to stop the violence? New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) called on Democratic presidential candidates to support strong gun safety laws. U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and U.S. Rep. Peter King (RNY2), in a show of bipartisanship, called for a vote on the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 at a press conference Aug. 6. Improved background checks, banning high-powered automatic and semi-automatic weapons and ammunition, and better mental health screenings have been among the top ideas suggested, some of the legislation relating to which is still pending. Some is stalled at various levels of Congress. Here’s a recap of what measures have been recently implemented or proposed.

Bump stocks

In March 2019 President Donald Trump (R) signed into law a ban on bump stocks, devices which turn weapons into automatic guns that fire rapidly through the recoil of the gun itself.

Red flag laws

New York State passed a “red flag” law in February 2019, which takes effect on Aug. 24. A new report, entitled “Mass Violence in Amer-

Above, U.S. Reps. Lee Zeldin (R-NY1) and Tom Suozzi (D-NY3). File photos

ica: Causes, Impacts and Solutions,” which was released Aug. 6 by the National Council for Behavioral Health, suggests that red flag laws may be among the best tools so far suggested for reducing gun violence. Red flag laws enable people, concerned about the well-being of individuals who display violent tendencies or show signs that they may be at risk to engage in gun

violence, to contact law enforcement to institute gun control measures through a court process. Under New York’s statute, three categories of people can submit a red flag on someone: law enforcement, school officials and family.

Background checks

(R-NY1) voted “no” on both bills. Zeldin defends his “no” vote record on these bills. When asked why, here is his response: “In the case of Parkland, for example, Nikolas Cruz passed a background check, but clearly should not have had any access to firearms. The current system is flawed. Unfortunately, instead of addressing these shortcomings, H.R.8 and H.R.1112 zeroed in on law-abiding citizens. We need to improve our nation’s background check system by ensuring state reporting and the compilation of all relevant information. We cannot determine if certain people are unfit to own a firearm if we don’t have the necessary available information.” H.R.4477 Fix NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System) Act of 2017 Passed as part of Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018. H.R.4477 amends the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act to require each federal agency and department to supply disqualifying records of a person prohibited from possessing a firearm. Zeldin supported the Fix NICS bill, and had this to say: “We need to ensure lunatics manifesting violent criminal intentions to murder with firearms have access to none. That’s why I supported the Fix NICS bill, which could have saved 26 lives at the First Baptist Church [of Sutherland Springs] in Texas, and why I called for a congressional hearing and action in the wake of the tragedy in Parkland. I support the Mass Violence Prevention [Reform] Act, which would improve information sharing to prevent and deter violence caused by criminal use of firearms, reduce the flow of firearms onto the black market and provide law enforcement with increased resources to keep our communities safe. I also supported the STOP School Violence Act that helps school personnel and law enforcement identify and prevent violence in schools.”

County Suffolk unveils ambitious plan aimed at combating nitrogen pollution BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Suffolk County will look to address the ongoing issue of nitrogen pollution in surface and groundwater with an ambitious plan that will look to transition away from the reliance on cesspools and septic systems. The Subwatersheds Wastewater Plan, which would invest $4 billion to combat nitrogen pollution, would last more than 50 years and sets a blueprint for the county to replace hundreds of thousands of old and inadequate septic systems. The plan sets a goal for the county to eliminate 253,000 cesspools and septic systems by replacing them with new nitrogen reducing systems or by connecting them to existing sewers. According to Suffolk health officials, approximately 74 percent of the county remains unsewered, so individual residences and businesses rely on antiquated onsite wastewater disposal systems. Studies show that about 70 percent of the nitrogen input to local bays comes from approximately 360,000 cesspools and septic systems. “Scientists have warned that continued reliance on primitive wastewater disposal systems is a mounting threat to both our environment and our economy,” said Dr. James Tomarken, Suffolk health commissioner. “Now, for the first time, there is a long-term plan to diminish nitrogen pollution and put Suffolk County on a path to cleaner, healthier water resources.” The SWP has highlighted more than 190 individual watershed areas in Suffolk County and established goals and recommendations

for reducing nitrogen inputs into each area. If those goals are met, health officials said it will begin to reverse the decline in water quality within 10 years and bring it back to a more pristine condition. To get that process started, officials said the county will use more than $500 million in already allocated grant sources toward the replacement of 10,000 cesspools and septic systems and expand connections to sewer systems over the next four years as part of the first phase of the plan.

“This plan represents the first meaningful strategy to address legacy septic nitrogen pollution since countywide sewering objectives were abandoned some four decades ago,” Walter Dawydiak, director of Environmental Quality for Suffolk County, said. “In those four decades, we learned a great deal about how toxic excess nitrogen is to the ecosystem. However, we consistently failed to solve the single largest environmental health problems of our generation. Finally, we have a response plan that will restore our ecosystems and protect

our drinking water.” In the second phase of the plan, which would begin 2024, the county would look to eliminate more than 177,000 cesspools and septic systems near shorelines and high priority areas. It also recommends a requirement that cesspools and septic systems be replaced with new technology when properties change hands, or when those cesspools and septic systems fail. Officials estimate that the requirement could increase the number of cesspools eliminated from 1,000 to more than 5,000 per year. The third phase of the SWP will tackle all other priority areas during a 15-year period. The fourth and final phase would address the remaining areas of the county beginning in 2068. Currently, county grants of up to $20,000 are available for residents who qualify and wish to replace their cesspool. There is also an additional state grant of up to $10,000, which can mean a total of up to $30,000. As of July 1, Suffolk County residents who voluntarily decide to replace their cesspools will need to replace them with a system consisting of a septic tank and leaching pool at a minimum, according to previous reporting by TBR News Media. Contractors will need to register the system with the Department of Health Services. The SWP will undergo a detailed review by the county’s Council on Environmental Quality and will include an environmental impact statement which is expected sometime in mid-August, according to officials. From there, a 30-day comment period will begin, with two public hearings being scheduled.

Editorial

Letters to the Editor

Americans feel sorrow and fear whenever we learn that a gunmen carrying a high-powered firearm has committed a mass shooting. In one week, three shootings occurred in three separate states. While none of them took place on Long Island or even New York, the tragedy still hits home. The situation is for too long unbearable and action is overdue. We are too often reminded that we aren’t safe whether we are at work, school, a movie theater, a store, nightclub, a concert or a festival. After the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, in 2018 many school districts on Long Island began contemplating whether or not to have armed guards, while systematically upgrading security in their buildings. Children coming back to school in the Comsewogue School District, for example, will walk through vestibules lined with bullet resistant glass. One editor was talking about an upcoming garlic festival with a group of friends the other day when one shuddered and said, “Please, don’t go to any garlic festivals,” all in relation to a shooting at a garlic festival in Gilroy, California, July 28. After the recent tragedies, with one shooter robbing the lives of 22 in El Paso, Texas, and another killer murdering nine in Dayton, Ohio, with dozens injured in both cities, many have said that we need to remember these events and how we feel when we vote in 2020. Why wait? Our local legislators, even members of our boards of education, make decisions that affect our everyday lives. They can write stricter laws when it comes to purchasing and owning guns, allocate funding to patients seeking mental health care or help schools with grants for security. Make sure they are making the decisions you want them to. Even though the 2019 elections involve local municipalities and not federal offices, every legislator can affect laws that protect our lives and well-being. This week’s headlines made many Americans feel helpless. Police responded to the Dayton shooting in 30 seconds since the first round left the gunman’s chamber. In that time, nine people were dead. The suspect used a 100-round magazine and a semi-automatic rifle. It took five times as long to write this paragraph as it took a murderer to kill nine people. But there’s something all of us can do. We can vote for those who represent our values. This year and next, the time is now to look deep inside our hearts and ask what we feel is the best route to stop the violence. Then research the candidates who are running for office to see where they stand. And even before election day, call your local representatives and tell them something must be done now, not after election day. Every time you vote for a candidate, your ballot is a show of confidence to continue in the political realm. Today’s member of town council can be tomorrow’s county or state legislator or next year’s congressional leader. Nov. 5, Election Day, will be here before you know it. The time is now to start doing the footwork and for everybody to vote. Our editorial staff will soon be hosting political debates to prepare for our election issue. We’re not waiting until 2020 to ask the candidates tough questions and neither should our readers.

In view of the latest attacks in El Paso and Dayton and in view of the many others I am sad and disappointed that my congressman Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) has constantly been opposed to sensible gun control. He co-sponsored a bill, H.R. 131, that protects the interstate transportation of arms and the bill H.R 197 that means to protect the carry of concealed arms from

one state that permits it to another that doesn’t. He also supported a decrease on restrictions on gun purchase. What we need instead are background checks, a ban on assault weapons and tighter controls on the sale and licensing of guns. These efforts may not stop every mass shooting, but they are a step in the right direction. Our children

should not be afraid to go to school. Adults should not be afraid to go to a public place. Zeldin needs to stop aiding the haters and shooters and put sensible gun control into effect to protect the public.

Amid the many individual human tragedies that we find ourselves inundated with, there are even broader issues of working to keep our bays and oceans healthy that are being marginalized. Quietly, much federal legislation is being pushed that maximizes profits at the expense of the health of the public’s environment. One such piece is an H.R. bill that is moving forward in the House and threatens

the scientists and marine fisheries they protect. This is despite the fact it has been 40plus years since the Magnuson-Stevens Act was enacted, where the U.S. fishery management system has played a critical role in maintaining the viability of numerous important fish species stocks. H.R. 3697’s shortsighted approach would undermine that progress and risk the return to days when overfishing and depleted fish

populations were chronic problems. Please call your congressperson and help ensure that fishermen, coastal communities, oceans and future generations benefit from stable, abundant fish populations. Unless we take the time to let our representatives know we oppose this legislation, we can expect an even greater loss of our fisheries and the fishermen who depend on it. Charles A. Perretti Setauket

Remember in 2019 U.S. needs sensible gun legislation

Citizen environmental stewardship needed

Identity politics destructive to our country In response to a recent letter to the editor, in which all President Donald Trump [R] supporters were labeled “racists,” the buzzword which is used when there is nothing else. If you disagree with someone’s politics or if you don’t like them for any reason, they resort to this word and as a result of using “racism” so carelessly, it no longer holds the serious gravity it deserves. Now that the Mueller Report has been debunked and Mueller was sadly used and exposed as a mere figurehead for a team of partisan Democrat lawyers, the Dems have caught the racist buzzword and the media is hyping it up. In Saul Alinsky’s book, “Rules for Radicals,” rule No. 7 states: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Don’t become ‘old news.’” “Racists” is an old tactic that has been dragging on for years. Speaking of old news, we have four freshmen in Congress reincarnating “women of color,” (racist phrase), continued anti-Semitic remarks and hatred of Israel, white men being evil and they inducted a new member into the “racist club” ... Nancy Pelosi (Bush, Romney, Reagan are old members.) Clearly, racism is a human problem and our history reveals that blacks definitely suffered disproportionate

mistreatment. However, racism is without a primary color. Truth is key to any helpful healing discussion and what is often unknown to many is whites were not the exclusive slave owners or blacks the sole victims. There are several important things we should know about slavery and racism. 1. In 1621, Anthony Johnson went to court and won to be able to hold his black slaves in lifetime bondage. Anthony was a black man, America’s first slaveholder. 2. Carter Woodson, a famous black historian, conducted research in the 1800s and discovered black-on-black slavery was not uncommon and existed in both the North and South. 3. Native American tribes actively participated as black slave owners. 4. In the 16th to 18th centuries, Muslims took some 1.25 million slaves, both black and white (emphasis on enslaving Christians). 5. At the beginning of the Civil War, only 8 percent of Americans owned slaves, which included white, black, Native American and other slave owners, not just whites (according to “This Precarious Moment” by David Barton). The words “racist, sexist, Republican” are virtually interchangeable with many,

but when you research American history it reveals that the Republican Party began a coalition and their first platform in 1856 promised to defeat “slavery and polygamy.” They also passed the 13th (abolished slavery), 14th (made Afro-Americans citizens), 15th (the right to vote) amendments and, yes ladies, in 1920, after 52 years of Democratic “resistance,” the Republicans passed the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote. In conclusion, Trump is not a racist for fixing the “border crisis.” It’s common sense that open borders and a welfare state cannot co-exist. We all have locks on our doors; some homes have gates and security systems to keep our families safe. Why not for our country? The most important job of our government is to keep the American citizen safe and Trump is doing it in spite of the resistance. There is an old adage with wisdom, “Get your own house in order first.” Shouldn’t there be concern and attention directed toward having every veteran in a home and not one American child going to bed hungry. Go USA. Carol Florio Lisa Pius Old Field

Opinion

NRA should fund gun control research

I

have an obvious question for the National Rifle Association: Why fight gun control? Yeah, yeah, I get it. You and many others don’t want a repeal of the Second Amendment, which was written well before the creation of assault weapons that enabled deranged Americans to kill their fellow citizens at an unfathomable rate. But don’t gun manufacturers D. None want gun conof the above trol? After all, wouldn’t it be BY DANIEL DUNAIEF better to produce a product that stayed out of the wrong hands? Let’s take a look at the difference between gun manufacturers and car manufacturers. On the one hand, you have companies producing

vehicles where safety is a top priority. In addition to meeting the stringent requirements of the law, some car manufacturers add features like a way to block text or phone signals from getting into a car while someone is driving. Wow, what a concept. The car manufacturers don’t make the phones. People have died doing all kinds of activities with their phones, taking selfies in dangerous locations and not paying attention to their environment in general because they are so focused on their phones. And yet, some of these car manufacturers are protecting drivers from their own unsafe impulses that could harm them and others — sounds familiar? — by preventing the dangerous combination of phone use and driving. If we buy into the notion that “guns don’t kill people, people kill people,” shouldn’t gun manufacturers make an effort to find out which people are more likely to kill other people, and not sell these destructive weapons to them? In 1996, three years before the Columbine, Colorado, shooting became one of the first in what has now become a painful and familiar collection of mass murders in locations

ranging from schools to houses of worship to malls during back-to-school sales, Congress passed a budget that included the Dickey Amendment, named after U.S. Rep. Jay Dickey (R-Arkansas). That amendment prevented the government from funding research that might lead to the conclusion that gun control was necessary. Say what? Yeah, but, in light of recent tragedies, a law was passed last year clarifying that the Centers for Disease Control can actually fund research about guns. And, yet, the CDC still can’t lead to any advocacy for gun control. If guns make most people safer, why don’t gun manufacturers want to know which people, specifically, shouldn’t have a gun? The idea of background checks and red flags are all fine, but they may not be sufficient. If a virus broke out anywhere in the country that threatened to kill a room full of people in minutes, we would want the CDC not only to understand how to treat those who might have that virus immediately, but also to provide warning signs to others about any symptoms that might lead to an outbreak of that virus.

The CDC is way behind in its research in part because that 1996 amendment effectively dampened any effort to conduct the kind of studies that would lead to a greater understanding of gun violence. Sure, the Federal Bureau of Investigation could and should find people who might be a threat to society. With the help of the CDC, the FBI might have a better idea of where to look. The well-funded NRA, however, would do itself — and society — a huge favor if it put its considerable financial muscle behind an independent effort to understand how to recognize those people who shouldn’t have any kind of gun, let alone an assault rifle capable of mass murder in a minute. The NRA doesn’t even need to call it gun control, just firearms research. We the people may have a right to own guns, but we also have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Wouldn’t gun control research, supported by the NRA, ensure that we could live our lives without fear of the wrong people owning the wrong guns?

presented to the reader in an attractive format that informed and enriched the community. In the process, the news organization was also enriched, and there were newspapers everywhere. The biggest challenge was beating competitors to the “scoop” and gaining the greater market share of advertisers. Today that simple business plan seems like a fairy tale. According to data in a special section of The New York Times on Sunday, “Over the last 15 years, about 2100 local newspapers — or roughly a quarter of all local newsrooms — have either merged with a competitor or ceased printing … About 6800 local newspapers continue to operate across the country, but many are shells of their former selves, with pared down staffs and coverage areas. About half of the remaining local papers are in small and rural communities, and the vast majority distribute fewer than 15,000 copies of each edition.” I could go on with the statistics, but here’s the point: If we don’t embrace change, we get left behind. So it is that we at Times Beacon Record Newspapers have become TBR News Media, with the addition of a website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube platforms to accommodate the various demands for news and advertising. After

all, we work for our customers and we must offer them what they want and need. By the same token, while maintaining those platforms has increased our costs, the revenue they generate is minimal. Further worsening the newspaper situation is the demise of the traditional mom-and-pop retail stores, the previous backbone of so many communities and community newspapers. So we have changed, as the surviving retailers have changed. We, and they, are now building events into our offerings, much as we used to publish supplements to target specific subjects and advertising niches for our papers. Retailing now includes some aspect of entertainment with their event planning, and publishing companies, whether in print or digital, must also provide entertaining events. Fortunately for us at TBR, we can make this fit with our mission statement to give back to the community, and indeed to endeavor to strengthen the sense of community where we publish. Since our first year in existence, over 43 years ago, we have held the Man and Woman of the Year event at the Three Village Inn, with the financial help of Stony Brook University and the Lessings, at which we have saluted those who go the extra mile

offering their products, services or time to their neighbors in their hometowns. For the last two years, we have produced and directed films with authentic Revolutionary War narrative at Stony Brook’s Staller Center to share pride in our Long Island history, explaining who we were at the dawn of our country and how we got here. Coming next on the events list is Cooks, Books and Corks, a community-enriching program that features scrumptious food from some of our local restaurants at stations around the perimeter of a room at the Bates House filled with local authors and their books. We started this last year, and it was such a success that both restaurateurs and authors offered themselves on the spot for the next such gathering. They said they liked “the high tone.” Therefore, the Second Annual Cooks, Books and Corks will take place in the same bucolic location, in Setauket, on Tuesday evening, Sept. 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. The charge is $50 per person, and the money raised will go toward subsidizing the pay of a journalism intern next summer. Please mark your calendars and join neighbors and friends at this event to share food for both body and mind.

T

he world has changed for all of us since we entered the 21st century. While our computers didn’t blow up as the millennium turned, the horrific attacks on 9/11 forever, it seems, altered our sense of safety in our country and elsewhere on the globe. The arrival of the internet on desktop computers, the proliferation of cellphones, the rise of social media — they have upended the architecture of our lives. Change has been no less dramatic in our work lives. For those of us in the news business, the basic business model is disappearing.
