Village 7-Eleven coming to old McCarrick’s site BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

RITA J. EGAN

The shuttered McCarrick’s Dairy, a fixture in Rocky Point for 71 years, might soon be bearing the green, white and orange colors of the ubiquitous 7-Eleven logo. The Town of Brookhaven Planning Board approved the plans for the new 7-Eleven at its July 30 meeting. The half-acre property, owned by Rocky Point-based Dairy Farm LLC, at the northwest corner of North Country Road and Harding Street will be renovated to have 43 parking spots in front and behind the main building. Plans for the 3,800-square-foot renovated structure are prohibited from including neon signage and outdoor sales and storage in an effort to stay true to the residential nature of the area, according to recommendations by the planning board. A number of residents view the new 7-Eleven as a major change from the old McCarrick’s Dairy, which they considered a small grocery store more so than a typical convenience store. “A convenience store is something that is a grab-and-go,” Rocky Point resident Anita LoPiccolo said at the July 9 planning board meeting. “McCarrick’s was a family run, community-supported business that encouraged community closeness.”

Charles Bevington, the president of the Rocky Point Civic Association, said he is concerned with how many convenience stores already exist in downtown Rocky Point. There are already two other 7-Elevens in the hamlet: one on the corner of Route 25A and Rocky Point-Yaphank Road and another next to Westchester Drive. “Rocky Point is apparently drinking a lot of coffee,” Bevington said. “We will soon have 10 to 12 convenience stores in a matter of two miles.” Kevin McCarrick, co-owner of McCarrick’s Dairy before it closed in 2017, said before they received an offer from 7-Eleven, they had been searching for another local business to take their place, but they could not find any potential buyers. “We started out seeking those operators who had shops like ours, but unfortunately they are a dying off breed,” McCarrick said. “All kinds of stores sell all kinds of products now and it’s really diluting the product mix. It becomes very difficult to maintain margins.” He said by not opening another shop similar to the old McCarrick’s, ultimately he was protecting the business of shops like Shop With Us in Shoreham and the Handy Pantry further down from McCarrick’s in Rocky Point. “There is a difference between a 7-Eleven customer and a customer of those types of shops, and

both those stores are doing better and will continue to do better with a 7-Eleven than even if we remained there,” McCarrick said. “It will probably do more business than our store used to do.” Some residents were concerned about the safety and lighting at the location, citing the potential for crime and litter. McCarrick said the location already has two spotlights that light up the property as well as the adjoining residential park. The 7-Eleven will also have a 10×20-foot garbage enclosure and surrounding bushes and fences to prevent trash from blowing onto neighboring yards. Some in the community are excited for the new

7-Eleven. Nancy Hoffman, a direct support professional at the Association for Habilitation and Residential Care Rocky Point residential group home facility located off Harding Street, said she and other workers at the home were looking forward to the opening of the new convenience store. “We will take some of the residents there, and it will just be more convenient,” Hoffman said. McCarrick said they plan to start renovations on the store in about a month. Representatives from 7-Eleven said the location would be operated by corporate for an unspecified amount of time until they could find a person who would wish to franchise the store.

Village Port Jeff, Belle Terre look to cede ambulance services to TOB

NE HO W T RA TE S

The villages of Port Jefferson and Belle Terre are proposing a change to its ambulance service contracts with the goal of increased efficiency on the mind. Currently emergency ambulance services are provided to homes in Mount Sinai Ambulance District, and the two incorporated villages by the Port Jefferson Ambulance Company, a notfor-profit corporation located on Crystal Brook Hollow Road in Mount Sinai. The ambulance company provides services to the three entities through individual contracts, with a projected 2018 total budget of $1.4 million. Port Jeff and Belle Terre villages contracted KPC Planning Services Inc. to examine the possibility of proposing to expand the Mount Sinai Ambulance District to encompass the two villages, thus simplifying the process and requiring a single contract with the company for its existing coverage area. Port Jeff Village Attorney Brian Egan called the current set up, “not even close to efficient,” noting the three entities do not even operate on the same fiscal year, making budgeting for ambulance

services more complicated than village officials say it needs to be. “It creates a problem for us because the 51 percent majority can pass a budget without our say,” Port Jeff Mayor Margot Garant said during a May board meeting. The Mount Sinai Ambulance District makes up more than 50 percent of the ambulance company’s territory and is overseen by the Town of Brookhaven. KPC Planning Services’ report summed up the goal behind the proposed change: “Operationally, the district managers must answer to three municipalities to make a capital, equipment or operational decision. The goal of the expanded district is to remove the village[s] from operational responsibility and vest the power exclusively in the Town [of Brookhaven].” In actuality, Port Jefferson Village’s contract with the ambulance company expired in 2011, meaning the entities have continued a relationship without an official contract for seven years. “It means no change in area, no change in service, no change in population — everything remains exactly the same,” Egan said in an interview. “The only structure that we’re changing is that we would no longer be a contracting party. It

would be 100 percent exclusively in control of the Town of Brookhaven.” Egan said residents should not expect to see any changes in their taxes, services or even the name on the side of an ambulance in the case of an emergency. Both villages have passed resolutions proposing the change, which will need to be acted on by Brookhaven before it can go into effect. Egan said he’s not sure of the timeline from the town’s perspective but hopes it is soon.

Consolidating services has been on the mind of Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine (R), as the town was named the winner of a $20 million grant for its proposals as part of a New York State competition earlier this year. “Elimination of this three-ring tangle is consistent with Brookhaven Town Supervisor Edward Romaine’s goal to eliminate duplication in districts, streamline decision making and consolidate services,” the KPC report said.

Town Brookhaven voters to weigh in on changes to elected officials’ terms Although politicians in Brookhaven Town are not up for election this cycle, voters will be asked a question with long-term implications for town government in November. The Brookhaven Town Board voted unanimously to establish a referendum on the ballot Nov. 6 asking town residents to weigh in on changes to terms in office for elected officials, specifically increasing terms from two years, as is currently the law, to four years for councilmembers, the supervisor and highway superintendent. The referendum will have a second component as part of the same “yea” or “nay” question: limiting officials to three terms in office. That component would impact the above positions, as well as town clerk and receiver of taxes. Both components will appear as part of a single proposition, according to Town Attorney Annette Eaderesto. Putting the issue up to a vote was established as a result of an Aug. 2 public hearing. If passed the law would go into effect for terms beginning Jan. 1, 2020. “[The voters] have, in the past weighed in, and whatever they weighed in to is not being listened to now,” Supervisor Ed Romaine (R) said during the hearing. “Maybe that’s fine with them, maybe it’s not, but I would like to go back and ask them, ‘What do you think?’” In 1993, residents voted to implement a limit of three four-year terms on elected officials, though that law was no longer applicable following a 2002 public vote to establish council districts, as state law dictates councilmembers in towns with council districts serve two-year terms, according to Emily Pines, Romaine’s chief of staff and a former New York State Supreme Court justice, who spoke during the hearing. Several members of the public commented in opposition of various aspects of the referendum, saying the two components should be separated to be voted on individually; there’s not enough time to untangle issues with the language of the law, like what to do with an individual who served as a councilperson for 12 years and then is elected to another position such as supervisor; and how to handle time already served by current members. Others cited shorter terms as fostering more accountability for elected representatives. “I think it’s too complex to be one resolution,” said Jeff Kagan, a resident and representative from Affiliated Brookhaven Civic Organization. “I think you’re asking the voters to vote on some things they like and some things

they may not like.” Anthony Portesy, the Democrat candidate for town highway superintendent in 2017 and a private attorney, spoke against extending terms to four years, but said he would be in favor of three years because having to campaign every two years can be “arduous.” “While I’m not opposed to the extension of terms per se, four-year terms is an eternity in politics, too long for hyperlocal town races,” he said. “We don’t want to create electoral feudalism in Brookhaven through the coercive powers of incumbency.” Patchogue Village Mayor Paul Pontieri spoke in favor of going to four-year terms during the hearing about having to run for office every two years, saying it can get in the way of accomplishing goals set forth at the beginning of a term. Romaine and councilmembers Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station), Jane Bonner (C-Rocky Point) and Kevin LaValle (R-Selden) each expressed similar sentiments when asked if they intended to support the idea in early July when the public hearing was set. “You don’t have the constant churning in politics that can sometimes undermine the system,” Romaine said. “It allows for long-range planning and programs. It takes the politics out of local government.” Eaderesto said the town’s Law Department will draft the wording as it will appear on the ballot in November and share it with the Town Board prior to submitting it to the Suffolk County Board of Elections by Oct. 1.

Medical professionals participate in an opioid ethics symposium at Stony Brook University Aug. 3.

At Hope Academy at Little Portion Friary in Mount Sinai, representatives from State Farm pass off keys to a Ford van to Charlie Russo to be used by Hope House Ministries.

Opioid symposium posits State Farm, ProLiner Rescue restore, ethical questions on crisis donate van to Hope House Ministries BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM The opioid crisis has reached its tendrils out to touch every person in the U.S., and the doctors who prescribe those opioids for pain relief see the ethical dilemma; whether they should treat their patients’ pain or not out of concerns of misuse. At an opioid ethics symposium hosted at Stony Brook University Aug. 3, Dr. Kevin Zacharoff, an expert in pain medicine and a sitting member of the Anesthetic and Analgesic Drug Products Advisory Committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, said a number of doctors no longer prescribe opioids for pain management because of how quickly the repercussions of misuse will come down on them. “All the regulatory agencies are coming down and tightening the screws of people in primary care, and people in primary care are saying ‘I wash my hands of it,’” Zacharoff said. “This is all falling on the shoulders of health care providers — when people dying from heroin and fentanyl has overtaken pain medication.” The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that nationally 116 people a day died from opioid-related drug overdoses in 2016. A U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report released in 2016 said that the rate of death from drug overdoses has increased 137 percent and a 200 percent increase in the rate of opioid overdose deaths from 2000 to 2014. CDC data shows that regulations on prescription opioids restrained the rise of overdose deaths involving legal drugs, but since 2011 there has been a spike in the number of deaths caused by illicit drugs such as heroin and other painkillers including fentanyl. Zacharoff said he fears that these regulations on opioid prescribing pushes stable patients who could have been using opioids to treat long-term pain into using illicit drugs. “Prescription drug monitoring programs have made a positive impact, but they have also had a negative impact on health care providers, because

it takes a lot of time and energy,” Zacharoff said. “Should we sacrifice our care for patients for the sake of people using the substances illicitly?” For the past several years federal agencies, as well as state governments, have started to restrict the number of opioids available for pharmacies as well as scrutinizing how doctors prescribe that medication. A large number of federal agencies, such as the CDC, the FDA, the Drug Enforcement Administration, just to name a few, are involved in opioid research and regulations. This is on top of state prescription drug monitoring programs, which make doctors fill out forms on patients, saying whether they informed them of the dangers of the drugs and whether they asked if there was a person in the house with a history of addiction. In April, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the DEA would propose setting more limits on the numbers of opioids that a drug manufacturer could produce. Prescribing doctors said they have seen multiple problems with a shortage of opioids due to these limits on manufacturing and distribution. “We are seeing an inability to get our prescriptions filled on Long Island,” said Laureen Diot, a nurse practitioner from East Patchogue. Though that is not to say there have not been bad actors. In May, Merrick doctor Michael Belfiore was convicted of prescribing hundreds of opioids for profit and for causing the deaths of two men via overdoses. He wrote 5,000 prescriptions for 600,000 pain pills between January 2010 and March 2013, but Belfiore is asking a federal judge to dismiss the case, saying it was the pharmaceutical companies who promoted the drugs while downplaying their risks. The issue, Zacharoff said, stems from doctors’ lack of education when it comes to pain medicine. A 2011 study in the National Academies Press showed that out of 117 U.S and Canadian medical schools only four U.S schools offer a required course on pain. “That’s despite the fact that pain is the most common reason people seek medical attention,”

The private sector stepped up to help the helpers Aug. 3. Through a program called Recycled Rides, which creates partners between insurance providers and auto-repair companies to repair and donate vehicles to those in need, a Ford E series van was donated to Port Jefferson-based Hope House Ministries during a ceremony held at its Mount Sinai location, Hope Academy at Little Portion Friary Friday. Recycled Rides is an initiative started about 10 years ago by the National Auto Body Council, a notfor-profit organization aimed at improving the image of collision industry professionals. In this case, ProLiner Rescue auto-repair shop in Medford and State Farm teamed up to facilitate the donation. “We brought [ProLiner Rescue] the van, it was a mess,” said Steven Wisotsky, Metro New York Salvage Unit agent at State Farm. Wisotsky said the vehicle had been stolen. When it was recovered and ultimately purchased by State Farm, it was missing parts, there was substantial damage to its body, and other mechanical work and a paint job were Zacharoff said. “Doctors will often say to me, ‘I have to think about hypertension, diabetes, heart disease,’ but pain is more prevalent than diabetes, cancer and heart disease combined.” Suffolk County officials are hoping to see a decline in the number of opioid-related deaths this year. In a report presented at the May 31 Suffolk County Legislature’s health committee meeting Chief Medical Examiner Michael Caplan said that if numbers stay low, approximately 260 opioid-related deaths are expected this year — a near 100-person decrease compared to 2017. However, the county will not know the total opioid-related deaths until the year’s end. There are options for nonopioid pain relief,

also needed. The repair shop did all the work free of charge. “It’s phenomenal — we don’t have any federal funding or state funding, so for us, everything that we get is so appreciated,” said Charlie Russo, Hope House Ministry’s board chairman. “To have to go out and buy something like this, we can’t budget for. All of our money goes to direct services. It’s a phenomenal gift from this community, we receive so many gifts from this community. Just their support — emotional support, monetary support — and the amount of volunteers that come from our community, it’s just amazing.” Russo said the van would be used to transport necessary supplies to and from the organization’s 10 facilities, which are dedicated to serving individuals in crisis on Long Island since 1980. The chairman said the van was much needed, though he mentioned Ramp Motors in Port Jefferson Station has also been generous in supplying Hope House with transportation-related needs in the past. Brookhaven Town councilmembers, Kevin LaValle (R-Selden) and Jane Bonner (C-Rocky Point), were among the elected officials in attendance to commend the companies for their generosity.

such as rehabilitative and psychological therapies. Doctors at the symposium said they expect as opioid prescribing ebbs, then other practices or drugs will become more prevalent. While some medical professionals said medical marijuana might one day work as effective pain relief, it not being legal in New York and without the necessary number of tests, the drug is not viable at this moment. “It’s too early to write the book on marijuana for chronic pain,” said Marco Palmieri, the director of the Center for Pain Management at Stony Brook University. “Some physicians have gotten around this by opting not to test for marijuana [when doing prescriptions]. Whether that’s right, I don’t know. There certainly needs to be more data available.”

Strengthening musical skills SWR students Round Out summer

Shoreham-Wading River Central School District’s annual Round Out program is a place filled with laughter and camaraderie as dozens of students take part in creative art projects, games, athletic and outdoor activities and diverse opportunities to develop social skills and cultivate new friendships. The daily camp, headed by recreation specialists Maria Mistretta and Bob Szymanski, includes fun activities such as a scavenger hunt, sports day, crazy hat day and pajama day, among other themes that are enthusiastically

embraced by the campers. Much of the organized play is provided by the student volunteers, who attended the summer program when they were in the elementary grades and enjoyed it so much they came back to share the fun with the younger campers. Together, they work toward the program’s culminating team spirit week and a race for each grade level to capture the spirit cup. Pictured above in the back row from the left are volunteers Katlynn McGivney, Michelle Costa and Rachel Costa who along with firstgrade students finish a tie-dye T-shirt project.

Rocky Point school district commenced the 2018-19 school year during its annual reorganizational school board meeting July 12. During the meeting, Susan Sullivan, pictured on the right, was re-elected to serve as president for the fifth consecutive year, and Sean Callahan was elected to become the board’s new vice president. Callahan succeeds Scott Reh, who, after serving for eight years, did not seek re-election to the board. He previously served as vice president of the board for the past four years. In addition, Gregory Amendola was sworn in as a newly elected member of the board and Edward Casswell was sworn in for his second term as a board trustee. The district thanked all members for their dedicated service to the schools, students and community.

Students in the Shoreham-Wading River Central School District are strengthening their musical skills at the annual five-week Summer Music Institute. From woodwind, brass, percussion and string to piano and vocal lessons, the institute is an opportunity for students to learn from program director Paula Albert-Franz and district music teachers Erin Fasano, Arthur Gross, Kevin O’Brien and Ashley O’Connor and share in an enjoyable and positive educational experience. According to Albert-Franz, dozens of students take lessons either individually or in groups. This year’s popular new offerings of mandolin and banjo enable children to master their musical education as well as develop and enhance skills used in other subject areas.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development reported in 2017 there were more than 550,000 homeless in the country. Three alumni from Ward Melville and Commack high schools have asked a simple question: How many are stuck that way simply because nobody can see their résumés? “You never really know why someone became homeless,” said Dan Graziosi, 22, a Ward Melville graduate. He is chief executive officer of Lazarus Rising, a nonprofit created in 2015 that helps homeless people write their résumés and get ready for job interviews. “A lot of the people don’t necessarily see the skills that they themselves have, and sometimes showing this person that they have value is almost more important than making a résumé for them,” Graziosi said. Co-founders of Lazarus Rising, Ward Melville alum Matthew Sobel, 23, and Commack alum Matthew Rojas, 23, gave birth to the organization wondering, as sophomores at the University of Delaware, that if creating a résumé Dan Graziosi for them was difficult — two people who considered themselves privileged — then how tough would it be for a person without access to resources such as a computer? “There’s a really unfortunate number of people who are experiencing homelessness,” Rojas said. “While some are unfortunately addicts, a lot of them don’t have basic things like a printer, Microsoft Word or they just haven’t had an interview in a long time.” As they first walked into a Delaware homeless shelter in 2014, just a block away from their freshman dorm, the two did not have much in the way of community service experience. Yet at the shelter they met a man named Jeff, that while he had fallen on hard times since the 2008 recession, he also had years of experience managing more than 20 people at a warehouse. The only problem was his résumé was five pages of a single-spaced biography rather than the commonly accepted single page bulleting a person’s most applicable skills. “It kind of took our breath away knowing that an employer is throwing that right out the window,” Sobel said. “It’s not Jeff’s fault — he just didn’t know what standards there are in résumés.” In 2015 Sobel, Rojas, Graziosi, along with several other friends and compatriots, incorporated their talents into the non-profit Lazarus Rising, all while they were still undergrads. “There is a subset of the homeless population that have the skills to be an amazing employee,

but they simply lack the skills that we take for granted like being able to write a résumé,” Sobel said. “We all realized we came from super-fortunate situations, being from where we came from and what schools we came from. I came Matthew Sobel into college with minimal community service. It’s one of those experiences you really can’t understand until you do it.” Lazarus Rising has grown to host more than 200 volunteers offering their services either in school or during their free time. They have college chapters at Binghamton University, University of Delaware, University of Maryland and the University of Pittsburgh and professional chapters in New York City and Philadelphia. Graziosi estimates that the organization has aided more than 300 homeless participants. Volunteers for Lazarus Rising often spend approximately one hour with a homeless person working on his or her résumé. They then spend more time after completing mock interviews or even help the person navigate applying for jobs online. Rojas said that it is one of the greatest satisfactions of his life having helped these people get back on their feet. “It’s a feeling that what I’m doing actually makes a difference,” he said. Meanwhile the group hopes to expand its reach in New York state and eventually Long Island, most likely through local colleges like Stony Brook University. All three alumni are out of college and have either found jobs or starting ones, but that has not stopped any of them from being active in the organization. While Graziosi will soon be taking on a job as a technology consultant for Matthew Rojas Ernst & Young, a professional services organization, he still plans to run as the nonprofit’s CEO into the foreseeable future. Graziosi’s mother Sheila, a Setauket resident, said what her son and his friends have been able to accomplish has not only changed their lives, but the lives of many homeless. “He’s amazing — I’m just so proud of him,” Graziosi’s mother said of her son. “He’s really getting so much out of it.” Lazarus Rising is looking for more volunteers.

Opinion

Editorial

Regulate recreational pot

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has put New York on a path to become the 10th state in the United States to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. We’re in favor of jumping on the national movement, so long as it’s done with both eyes wide open. On Aug. 2, Cuomo announced that he was forming a group of 20 experts specializing in public health, safety and economics to draft legislation to regulate the recreational use of marijuana by adults. The bill would go before the state Legislature in January 2019. Laws surrounding marijuana have been gradually shifting since California legalized its medical use in 1996. A number of scientific studies have shown the drug may be beneficial for those suffering from chronic pain, seizures and mental impairments. New York adopted medical marijuana laws in July 2014. The state’s foray into opening the medical marijuana market has been closely regulated. Patients need to be formally diagnosed by a licensed medical practitioner, have it prescribed, register with the state and carry an identification card. The state has limited the number of dispensaries, making for news whenever a site opens. Moving toward decriminalizing recreational use of pot — as its more commonly called — could provide several benefits. Colorado, one of the first states to allow smoking marijuana in 2012, saw an immediate economic boom. It saw a vast spike in tourism, something unlikely to repeat here in New York, but reports show benefits from taxing and regulating what was once an underground market. The Gazette, a Colorado Springs newspaper, reported in July that studies show there’s been an increase in the number of adults who are indulging in marijuana, while the number of high school and middle school students who report testing it out has held steady at or below the national average. Simply put, if a teen was tempted to try it — marijuana’s legality wasn’t stopping them. New York approving legislation allowing for the drug’s recreational use — treating it similarly to alcohol — could open up avenues for regulations of an otherwise black market turning it into a resource to provide tax revenue for the state. The funds would arguably benefit school districts and could be used to help close state budgetary shortfalls while helping offset any further tax hikes. The drafted bill should outline restrictions on smoking up more in line with shifting socially acceptable drugs, like alcohol. We agree age restrictions, limitations on appropriate places and enforcement against drugged driving need to be on the books. The issue becomes, can marijuana be safely, legally and responsibly used? State legislators need to create a carefully crafted, well-thought out bill that sets parameters to allow for regulation of what’s already happening. Each week, TBR News Media reporters see countless incidents of people being arrested for possessing or smoking marijuana — without committing other criminal behavior. Regulate it, create a market and be flexible to amending the laws when — not if — loopholes emerge. It’s time to refocus our law enforcement’s efforts on cracking down on Long Island’s illegal heroin and opioid problems, which can and do result in fatal overdoses and places stress on our health care system.

Letters to the editor Lists, contradictions and credibility Myrna Gordon and Susan Perretti double-teamed readers with pearl-clutching, self-aggrandizing accounts of their treatment at Congressman Lee Zeldin’s June 28 Elk’s Club campaign event. Deliberately, and disingenuously, omitted regarding their evening was critical information, proudly discussed at length, and published in The Smithtown News. Offered a rather extended interview, Ms. Gordon boasted of the plot put together by her, Ms. Perretti and two other cohorts, aimed at purposely disrupting our congressman’s kickoff celebration. The foursome would gain access to the private property, spread out, not acknowledge one another, then individually and at different intervals interrupt the speakers.

Gordon stated the shouting would begin “when we felt it was most opportune.” She continued with specifics. “I was going to be the first one to go, John was going to be the second to go, Susan the third, and Bill was going to wrap it up.” The four interlopers spent a great deal of this two-page article, in effect, boasting of their duplicity. Yet neither lady, writing to The Times of Smithtown, so much as whispered a word about this scheme. Apparently they were too busy sanctimoniously lecturing others about “hate” and “peace” or assigning themselves to a fabricated “enemies list.” Ms. Gordon did, however, without a hint of irony, and in spite of the alleged

attack on a Zeldin campaign worker and accompanying terroristic threats to his supporters, demand knowing “What reasons are his [Zeldin’s] constituents being targeted?” Gordon not only gave excellent reasons, chapter and verse, but immodestly plastered them all over a weekly newspaper, printed in the very same town where her letter and Sue’s column appeared. With her own words, Mryna Gordon wound up validating the steps taken by Congressman Zeldin’s security team, in keeping two other plotters out and removing both her and Susan Perretti.

Millenials: the silent majority Since well before the election of President Donald Trump (R), his base had branded themselves as “the silent majority.” As we know, they claim to represent the views of Americans that haven’t voted in years. But I take issue with this usage of the term. For, in reality, the silent majority in America is not middle America, but the youth of America. You see, the 18 to 44 age bracket makes up about 36 percent of the voting eligible population. But consistently less than 50 percent of millennials vote in elections. This means that they are silent in terms of real political impact. However, looking at the recent engagement, we can see that this year will be different. Spurred by children too young even

to vote, between 500,000 and 800,000 people showed up in Washington, D.C., to protest gun violence in this country. All across the nation, countless satellite marches took place. Millenials and young people in general tend to be issue oriented, not party oriented. As Kristin Lynch, a regional spokesperson for the Clinton 2016 campaign, put it, “You’re having millenials not wanting to be categorized in boxes.” Gun violence prevention is one of those issues. Led by movements such as March for Our Lives, we are ready to see change in this country. For too long, politicians have ignored us because we don’t decide the fates of their jobs. This year, that will change. This year, we won’t be

silent any longer. And that is why, on Sunday, July 29, we are having a student-organized Rally to End Gun Violence at Breezy Park in Huntington Station. Working in conjunction with the office of Congressman Tom Suozzi (D-Glen Cove), students of Long Island are planning a rally to showcase our strength and resolve. We’re lighting up the “bat signal,” so to speak, because even if the school year is over, our work is far from done. If you care about this issue, come out in support. And most importantly: Vote this November! We are coming out in force. Watch for us. Owen Toomey Student Rally Organizer Huntington

No one is above the law, Mr. President Donald’s father told his son, “Winning is everything — lying, cheating, cruelty, no problem.” But separating children from their parents? What about that Donald Trump? Stop blaming “Crooked Hillary” and the Democrats, Mr. President. Take responsibility for your policies. No one in a democratic society is “above

the law.” This view goes back to the Magna Carta in 1215 in Runnymede, England when the nobility forced King John, son of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, to accept that he was not above the law, but subject to the law. How long will the Republican Party enablers continue to give Donald a free ride

for his pathetic constant lies and pro-business laws. Tax cuts for the rich? After all his daughter and son-in-law made more than $82 million last year, according to Newsweek. And why are so many Republican politicians retiring this year? Herbert Laub Stony Brook

OPINION The next generation’s attitude to driving

I

s driving uninspiring for the next generation? My daughter recently got her license and my son is attending driver’s education classes so he can join his sister behind the wheel. This should be cause for celebration for them, right? Nope. When I ask my daughter if she wants to drive somewhere, she often shrugs and says, “Nah, that’s D. None OK, you can drive.” of the above I recently took BY DANIEL DUNAIEF a long drive with my son, where I pointed out the magnificent trees along the side of the road and where I couldn’t help noticing the license plates of cars

from Alaska, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and Oregon, just to name a few. “Dad,” my son interjected, after the pitch of my voice rose when I saw the one from Alaska, “you really like license plates.” No, he doesn’t get it, just as I don’t get his generation. When I got my license, I couldn’t wait to visit my friends, to go to the movies, to drive to West Meadow Beach where I had spent so much of my time walking, jogging or biking. Driving meant I no longer had to count the curves until I was at the beach. I could also exhaust myself in the waves and run out to the end of the magnificent sandbar, which seemed to stretch halfway to Connecticut, without worrying about leaving the beach before sunset so I could get home in the light. I could also offer to pick up my friends. I could drive to their houses, knock on their doors, show off my license to their parents and then laugh my way into the car with a friend, who would turn on the radio to music. It wasn’t

the boring nonstop news stations that my parents listened to — and which I now play in the car when I’m alone. I could drive to The Good Steer in Lake Grove and meet someone for a burger and a mountain of onion rings. I could make the car as hot or cold as I wanted. A driver’s license meant independence, freedom and maturity. I didn’t have to wait for anyone. But, no, my children and, from what I understand, many kids just aren’t as enthralled with the opportunity to get a license. For starters, as we have told them endlessly from the time we handed them their first wonderful-terrible device, they can’t use their cellphones when they are driving. When we drive, they can ignore the road signs and street signs. They don’t have to search the side of the road for deer, turtles or the rare and exciting fox. They can chat with their friends, who are similarly indifferent to their immediate surroundings, while the car, driven by someone else, magically carries them

to their next destination. We must have taken them to so many places where they wanted to go that they had no great urge to get behind the wheel and drive themselves. I know my mom was a chauffeur, too, driving the three of us hither and yon, but maybe we haven’t said to our children, “You can go when you can drive,” often enough. Maybe all the FaceTime and Skype time means that they can see and laugh with their friends without leaving the comfort of their home. They can’t bowl, see a movie or drink an Orange Julius, but they can hang out together while being in different places. Access to Uber and Lyft may also have reduced the need for them to drive. Then again, maybe it’s much simpler than that. I recently asked my son why he wasn’t more excited about driving. “Because,” he sighed, “when I get my license, you’ll ask me to do stuff.”

Techniques for avoiding traffic tickets

I

f your car is pulled over by a police officer, there is a good chance that you will be treated mercifully by the officer if you have the same first name as his or hers. How do I know this? There has been research that corroborates that statement. Now in a possible scenario, it would be a little difficult for me to pass myself off as Between “James,” the name you and me on the officer’s name tag, when BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF my driver’s license clearly says differently, although I suppose I could try telling him that he can call me by my

nickname, “James,” for short. Somehow, on reflection, I don’t think that strategy would work. As I was considering the possibility, I remembered strategies that did work, deliberate or not, that at least got me out of a ticket. I’ll bet you have some such memories of roadside encounters with the law, too. The first one to come to mind happened the day after I got married. My new husband was a medical student in Chicago, and he had flown into New York City for the Sunday wedding. We then flew back to his apartment that night, he returned to school the next day, and I got into his car and began to drive to an employment agency in the neighborhood. As I passed along the unfamiliar streets, I came up behind a large truck that was stopped just short of an underpass. When it didn’t immediately move, I assumed it was either stuck or parked there, and I drove around it to continue on my way. Immediately a police car appeared in my rear-view mirror,

lights flashing. I should mention here that I had not been stopped before in my short driving career. I pulled over, rolled down the window and waited as the middle-aged policeman got out and walked toward me frowning. “What’s the matter with you?” he inquired. “You just ran a stop sign.” I looked into my side mirror and realized that was why the truck was stopped. It had, however, blocked my view of the sign. I started to explain. “Where are you going in such a hurry?” “I’m going for a job interview with an employment counselor. I just got married yesterday in New York and I need a job.” Although I do not cry easily, I could feel myself beginning to tear up. “What! You just got married? Where is your lazy bum of a husband? Why isn’t he out working?” (This was February 1963, years before women’s liberation was even an expression.) “He’s a medical student here, and I’m the

one who has to support us for now.” I was beginning to sob. My story must have had the ring of truth, because he stared at me for a moment, then took out his handkerchief — these were the days before tissues — and handed it to me. He looked stricken. “Now don’t cry. Everything will be all right. You just go on to your appointment.” He started to turn away, then turned back for a moment. “You just make sure that husband of yours takes care of you properly as soon as he finishes school.” He turned on his heel, climbed into his car and pulled away. It was only then, as I was wiping my cheeks, that I realized he had left me with only his handkerchief — and not a ticket. I have been stopped by police officers on the highways in the course of the ensuing years. But I have never again been able to cry on cue. If you have any surefire ticket beaters, please share them with the rest of us.

On Aug. 7, Suffolk County Police Department officers, as well as members of the military and local fire departments, took time out to spend an evening with residents in the communities they serve. National Night Out events took place in various locations in Suffolk County including Centereach Pool Complex in Brookhaven, hosted by the 6th Precinct, and in the Commack Target parking lot, organized by the 4th Precinct. The free events included a chance to meet and chat with law enforcement officers, rescue workers and representatives from the different branches of the military. During the evening, attendees could play games, learn how to perform CPR, sit in an impaired driver simulator device, rock climb and more.

The Flashing Fingers Signing Club also performed in Centereach. “The night is about being able to humanize the people behind the uniform,” said William Zieman, 6th Precinct community liaison officer at the Centereach event. “It’s also about connecting residents with all the positive resources in the community and at the same time having the opportunity to interact with law enforcement in a positive way.” The Squillance family of Medford attended the event to show support for the 6th Precinct, including officers that came to their rescue recently. “This Suffolk police are a great group of people,” Steve Squillance said. “They were there when my son had a seizure in our pool at home, and Officer [William] Zieman and Officer [Casey] Berry even came to our house to teach my kids about pool safety.” Additional reporting by Anthony Petriello
