Suffolk County voters are being asked to cast their ballots Thursday in the primary party races. While tradition dictates that primaries are held Tuesdays, New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill in February to push back voting by two days to Sept. 13 to avoid the conflict with the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and celebration of the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah. Several key statewide positions are being contested, including who the Democratic Party nominees will be for state governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general. There are two noteworthy local races including the Democratic Party’s pick for Surrogate’s Court and who the Republican candidate will be for the state’s 2nd Assembly District. Registered voters can check the location of their polling place and its hours by visiting Suffolk County Board of Election’s website at voterlookup.elections.ny.gov/votersearch.aspx.

Upgrades underway for Mount Sinai football field, HS roof The Mount Sinai Mustangs football team will soon be cantering down a new turf field as part of the school district’s ongoing capital bond projects. By the end of the school year, the district hopes to have completed an upgrade to its turf field, track, concrete plazas, fencing, press box and bleachers for the varsity field. Plans are also in place to repair the high school roof as part of the district’s $5 million capital project that was approved in May by residents with a 787 to 176 vote. The district hired Melville-based architectural and engineering firm H2M to help design the new sports amenities and fencing, and Superintendent Gordon Brosdal said right now all projects are on or ahead of schedule. “You have to take care of your houses — all your stuff,“ Brosdal said. “If you don’t maintain them it becomes a big expense.” The district has ripped up its old turf surface, fearing that its age could result in it being condemned, and replaced it with a new one that prominently shows the school logo and mascot name. Amityville-based The Landtek Group Inc. is currently building the new track and new concrete plaza that will border the football field, both of which will be finished by mid-November.

Significant upgrades are underway for Mount Sinai’s football field, bleachers, track, press box and surrounding areas.

The new upgraded bleachers and press box should arrive in mid-November as well, according to district officials. The total amount for the athletics upgrades, including the new field and amenities, cost about $2.3 million. Brosdal said the field would be finished by Sept. 21 when the Mustangs will be hosting its first home game against Port Jefferson. “We tried to schedule the start of our season to be away games, but we should definitely be ready by that date,” Brosdal said. About $1.4 million went to fixing a patch of the

high school roof that has caused problems for the building during rainstorms. Construction will take place after school hours and is expected to be completed from late October to mid-November. The district is also planning to invest in new perimeter fencing. Some parts will be amending torn down chain link fencing, some of which borders residential properties. For fencing that borders the road, the plan is to build “ornamental” black iron fence to match the rustic character of the surrounding area. This includes a new gate stretched across the school’s front entrance off Route 25A

with stone supports that will match the electronic signs stationed at both entrances. The fences, along with other security measures, cost the district $800,000. The plan is to start construction in late September and is expected to be completed by mid-November. Several new security updates have finally come at the start of the new school year as well, though not part of the capital project. All faculty must wear security badges that are color coded to their school building. Athletics personnel have a purple badge while substitute teachers are yellow. High school students must also now wear badges, colored differently depending on their class year. The badges and guard booth were not part of the capital project and were instead included in the district’s security funding in the general fund budget. Mount Sinai’s 2018-19 budget included $400,000 in security funding, which was $305,000 more than the 2017-18 school year. Students and staff are now required to scan their badge into an electronic system upon entry. To go along with this change, a new front gate guard booth was installed in May that is wired with a phone, computer and cameras. Persons approaching the front gate need to either show a driver’s license or school badge to gain access to the campus.

Candidates for judgeship discuss qualifications, cross-party endorsements Scully and Whelan face off in Democratic primary Sept. 13, but they could meet again in the general election Political races for local judgeships don’t tend to garner much attention, but the 2018 race to preside over Suffolk County’s Surrogate’s Court is breaking the mold. Judge John Czygier Jr., who currently oversees the county’s Surrogate’s Court, Page A22 is nearing the mandatory retirement age, leaving a vacancy candidates Tara Scully and Theresa Whelan are competing to fill. The position, which yields a salary in excess of $200,000, carries a 10-year term, and the occupant may serve until age 70. The candidates face off in the Democratic primary Sept. 13 for the party line in the general election. The situation has drawn criticism far and wide, largely on the practice of cross-party endorsement deals. The candidates sat down Sept. 6 for an exclusive interview with TBR News Media’s editorial staff to set the record straight.

Editorial comment

What is Surrogate’s Court?

Surrogate’s Court is responsible for handling all issues involving wills and the estates of people who die. The court also handles guardianship hearings and some adoption cases for children whose parents are deceased. Each of New York state’s 62 counties has one surrogate judge except New York and Kings counties, which have two each. The court’s rulings can involve large amounts of money, making it uniquely susceptible to political patronage. Scully and Whelan both said they have the utmost respect for Czygier and seek to continue his legacy and practices. “Surrogate’s Court is there to help families when they can’t really help themselves,” Whelan said. “It has to be fair.” Scully stressed the importance of having empathy in Surrogate’s Court. “It’s a sanctuary and it needs to be treated like that,” she said. “People there are dealing with extremely difficult issues.”

Family Court Judge Whelan vies for nod

Whelan, 56, a Wading River resident, said she is throwing her hat into the ring for the Democratic nomination because of her qualifications and experience. “I have the bench experience,” Whelan, a registered Democrat, said. “I thought that it was important that an actual Democrat represented the Democratic Party in this race.” The nominee took the bench in Suffolk County Family Court in 2008, before becoming the supervising judge in 2016. There, she hears primarily abuse and neglect cases. Her responsibilities include overseeing nine judges and seven support

magistrates in two courthouses. “I have assisted hundreds, if not thousands of children to be successfully reunited with their parents,” Whelan said. “And if that’s not possible, we try to find them another loving option.” Since 2009, Whelan has led Suffolk County’s Child Welfare Court Improvement Project, an initiative to address court practices when a child is removed from a parent’s care while trying to ensure their safety and well-being. The nominee said she is an active member of the Suffolk County Bar Association and often lectures for them. She co-chaired Suffolk’s Family Court & Matrimonial Law committee for three years and is a former president of the Suffolk County Women’s Bar Association. Whelan’s husband, Thomas, is also a judge, currently serving as a Suffolk County Supreme Court justice. Despite current calls for an end to party patronage, Whelan said the position she’s running for is not a tool to fix the political system. She hopes to win on her own merits. “I have support of statewide judges, the chief judge, the administrative judge, the bar association, etc. [in my roll on the Family Court],” the nominee said. “I stand here as my own candidate.”

Scully cites her experience in elder law

Scully, 41, of Setauket, said she’s seeking the Democratic nomination after calls by Newsday and other elected officials to challenge the patronage system affecting this and other judicial races. A registered Republican, she pointed to her years working in elder law as part of the experience she can bring to the Surrogate’s bench.

“I do recognize I have an uphill battle,” Scully said. “But I love the Surrogate’s Court, and I believe the sanctity of our courts has to be preserved.” Scully started her career working in the executive chamber of former New York State Gov. George Pataki (R), before serving as counsel in guardianship proceedings for the state’s Appellate Division’s Mental Hygiene Legal Service. Like Whelan, she also is a former president of the Suffolk County Women’s Bar Association. Scully began her Port Jefferson-based practice in 2011 focusing on elder law. She said she has extensive experience in estate planning and administration, asset protection and guardianship proceedings, all of which she said would be important knowledge for Surrogate’s Court. Like Whelan, Scully also has political connections in the family as her father, Peter Scully, has name recognition in Suffolk County. He previously served as the regional chief for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and currently works as one of the deputies of County Executive Steve Bellone (D). Tara Scully said she often provides free legal representation for needy seniors, veterans and those with disabilities. “I have a poor business sense in the amount of pro bono work I take on,” she said. In 2015, Scully ran for Brookhaven Town District Court judge where she said she saw firsthand the way party patronage has entwined itself with politics after turning down a cross-endorsement deal. She lost by 173 votes. “I was so green I didn’t realize at the point that in many circumstances it was business as usual,” Scully said. “I think a lot of people were upset with

me that my gut reaction was revulsion.”

Political backstory

Although judges are expected to set aside their personal beliefs, politics has marred the race, though not necessarily thanks to the candidates themselves. Neither Whelan nor Scully were involved in this race as of early summer. Newsday reported earlier this year District Court Judge Marian Rose Tinari, who is married to Conservative Party chairman, Frank Tinari, and is a Conservative herself, had secured the Democratic Party line in the Surrogate’s Court race as a result of a deal with Suffolk Democratic Party chairman, Rich Schaffer, which was one of many similar deals between Suffolk party bosses. In June, Newsday ran an editorial in the form of a want ad, calling for a candidate “with a backbone to resist pressure from political bosses,” in response to the cross-endorsement of Tinari. Scully said she sprang into action as a result of the editorial to meet a tight deadline, and garnered enough signatures to run as both a Democrat and Republican. With a primary challenger stepping up to the plate, Tinari withdrew. Democrats then selected Whelan, who called herself a lifelong Democrat, as their candidate. Scully has argued her decision to enter the Democratic primary — despite being a registered Republican — has provided voters with a more transparent choice than if a Conservative had remained on the Democrat line. “I think the real point is six weeks ago, eight weeks ago, the Democrat candidate was a Conservative, and Democrats would go in and vote and not have any idea that the individual they’re voting for is not in line with their party philosophies,” Scully said. “Cross-endorsement deals are dictating who our judicial choices are, and the voter is unaware an individual without political backing, without a political upbringing or allegiance to political parties is never going to take the bench.” Whelan argued that voters are equally in the dark with a Republican in a Democratic primary. If she loses Thursday, there will be one name occupying both major party’s lines come November, as Scully has already been penciled onto the ballot by the Republican Party. Whelan joked when voters enter booths Sept. 13 they’ll simply be deciding between two Irish last names with little knowledge of the politics. She also took issue with Scully portraying herself as “standing up for Democratic principles” on her campaign site. “If I don’t win the primary, voters don’t have a choice, and I think that’s fair to say,” Whelan said. “I’m presenting myself as a Democratic Party member and the experienced judge, so that Tara and I can actually have a real election on Election Day, and I think that’s what she was trying to accomplish in the beginning.”

Town 3V civic association hosts forum on upcoming Brookhaven referendum BY ALEX PETROSKI ALEX@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Brookhaven Town has taken steps to change laws pertaining to terms of office for elected officials, but civically minded citizens are discussing it before jumping on board just yet. The Three Village Civic Association hosted a forum Sept. 4 at Emma S. Clark Memorial Library featuring four experts to discuss the proposal, which will appear on November’s ballot in the form of a referendum to be passed or failed by Brookhaven voters. Audience members came from as far afield as Medford and Patchogue. The speakers included 1st District Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station); Rich Johannesen, a veteran of local politics considered an expert in governmental workings, who helped lead a citizens initiative to establish council districts in the town more than 15 years ago; MaryAnn Johnston, president of the Affiliated Brookhaven Civic Organizations who also has seen more than her fair share of political races and policy discussions; and Anthony Figliola, former Brookhaven deputy supervisor and vice president of Empire Government Strategies, a company that provides strategic counsel on governmental rela-

tions and practices to municipalities. Brookhaven’s board voted unanimously Aug. 2 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, which would put it on par with the other Suffolk townships. The referendum will have a second component as part of the same, single “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. If passed the law would go into effect for terms beginning Jan. 1, 2020. In 1993, residents voted to implement a limit of three terms of four years each on elected officials, though that law was no longer applicable following a 2002 public vote to establish council districts since 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 Aug. 2 town hearing.

Which Body Type are YOU?

SEPTEMBER 13, 2018 • THE VILLAGE BEACON RECORD • PAGE A7

Some of the speakers at the Sept. 4 civic forum took issue with Brookhaven’s interpretation that the law of the town isn’t already limiting elected officials to serving three terms, calling on politicians to solicit an opinion from the state attorney general. Others pointed to language which could allow sitting board members to start their term clocks afresh, despite having served several terms already on the board, as particularly objectionable. Some suggested the referendum felt rushed saying, waiting a year would ensure full community awareness about the town’s intentions. Below are some of the comments from the civic association’s invited guests in a session moderated by the civic’s Herb Mones: Johannesen: “I’m going to be very clear — I oppose four-year terms. The longer we allow elected officials to serve without putting them before us, the more likely it is that they are going to become corrupt. I think if you look at the history of corruption in this town and you look at the history of corruption in this county, one of the reasons why our elected officials have gone south is because there were no checks and balances. There hasn’t really been the kind of political diversity we were hoping for.” Johnston: “The founders thought it was good enough for our congressmen to be two years; the state constitution provides for our assemblymen and our senators to be two years. And if the problem is raising funds for political campaigns, then the issue isn’t the length of term, because we have no guarantee they’ll ever stop raising funds and

do it continually for four years. This is what the voters want: We chose councilmatic districts and the Town of Brookhaven fought us tooth and nail all the way down the line. And now they’re telling us that the 1993 referendum that we enacted was repealed by council districts. That’s not true. We already have term limits. It can’t be repealed by implication.” Figliola: “To be perfectly candid, whether it’s two years or four years, you can’t legislate human conduct. So, if people are going to be corrupt, they’re going to be corrupt. I think that’s what prosecutors are for. It’s very hard to get elected if you’re a challenger unless it’s an open seat. It’s possible … but it’s difficult. That doesn’t have anything to do with corruption. I believe term limits can help, they can’t completely stop it, but can help because it will open up an opportunity for citizen legislators to be able to run. What this will do is, this will say ‘you have consecutively or nonconsecutively three four-year terms and then you’re out.’” Cartright: “As you all know, two town board meetings ago, I voted in support of putting this on the ballot for a vote. This has been something that me and my colleagues have been discussing for quite some time — at least four years or so. I think this is an important discussion that needs to be had. Am I advocating one or another? I am not. I understand both sides. My personal opinion is that for good governance, I do think that four years would be better than two years, based on my experiences.”

Rocky Point completes phase 2 of bond work before ’18-19 year The Rocky Point school district is battening down the hatches and shoring up its defenses with money from its ongoing capital bond project. The district has finished phase 2 of its list of projects set after passing a 2016 bond proposal. Much of the work has already been completed, including replacing the aging ceiling and lighting in much of the district’s four school buildings. “What we did weren’t things that are exciting like adding on a new wing, new classrooms or a new gymnasium, they were basic things to keep serving the students,” Superintendent Michael Ring said. In 2016 Rocky Point residents voted to let the district borrow $16 million for upgrades and repairs. The first half of the project, amounting to roughly $7 million, was completed in summer 2017. Parts of the second half of the plan, costing

approximately $9 million, were completed before the start of the school year Sept. 4, according to the district. In 2017, residents also approved with a 600 to 312 vote to release $3.4 million in capital reserve funds to work in tandem with the bond projects. That money was used to renovate the district’s music classrooms as well as finishing resealing of the middle school’s exterior brickwork to prevent water penetration. There are also plans for a future reconfiguration of the roadways on middle and high school property. Work is ongoing to refurbish the turf on the high school’s lower field, but Ring said weather has delayed the project. He said it should be completed within the next few weeks. Last year’s bond work included new boilers and renovated bathrooms at the Joseph A. Edgar Elementary School, as well as adding air conditioning to the high school auditorium. Summer 2018 construction, overseen by Huntington Station-based Park East Construction Corp.,

provided renovations to the high school’s boys and girls locker rooms and bathrooms. An Americans With Disabilities Act-compliant lift for the high school gym stage was also installed. Along with the work at the high school, the Frank J. Carasiti Elementary School cafeteria had new air conditioning installed. Ring said the most substantial improvement to district buildings during the past summer was the installation of new LED lighting fixtures throughout the high school and JAE elementary. The new lighting should be more energy efficient, he said, while giving the school the opportunity to replace aging ceiling tiles in places that had not been addressed for close to 50 years, since the high school was constructed. Work to renovate the middle school’s lighting system will take place during the year after school hours. FJC elementary has had its lighting replaced in the building’s corridors, and the rest of the building’s lighting will be updated in summer 2019. These lighting fixtures include new “daylight harvesting technology” that will dim the lights depending upon the amount of natural light that enters the room, which Ring said should save on electrical costs. The new lights also have occupancy sensors that will shut off all lights if there is nobody in the room. “That’s so you don’t see that effect you see when you’re driving down the road and the whole building is lit up, even if it’s 8 o’clock at night,” Ring said. As part of the bond project, the district is also looking to beef up security at its buildings. The district added unarmed security guards to school buildings for the start of the new school year. Rocky Point is also looking to implement a new door access system to reject unwanted intruders as well as “door-ajar systems” that will notify the school if a door is being propped open from the inside. The district also wants to improve its security camera capabilities by adding more camera coverage as well as installing new facial recognition and license plate reading technology. Ring said those projects are currently on hold awaiting New York State approval. If approved, the district will immediately put proposals out for bid so construction of those security additions can begin before the end of the 2018-19 school year, according to the superintendent. Ring said he happy with the results of the bond work so far, even as it became stressful to finish ongoing projects before students returned for the start of classes. “It’s always a relief when it’s done because it’s always a stressful time,” Ring said. “When you look at the end of June and things are getting pulled apart, then hoping and praying they get put back together for September. Hopefully next year’s project will come along, and the same thing will happen.”

Sound Beach Civic Association

SBCA

Goodbye to a dedicated board member

At the Sound Beach Civic Association meeting Sept. 10, the organization regretfully announced that Inge Goldstein has resigned from her position on the board. Goldstein has been the membership chair since January 2012, but this role has been only a part of her outstanding contributions to the association and this community, according to a press release from the organization. Most notably has been her work on the newsletter. Goldstein was known for being available no matter what needed to be done, from working on a scholarship fundraiser, to being

an advocate for animal welfare, to donating her time and energy at the civic’s Adopt-ASpot, just to name a few of her many contributions, the release said. She will be sorely missed on the board, according to President Bea Ruberto, but has said firmly that she will always be there to do what she can. The civic association presented her with a certificate of appreciation as well as a plant for her garden, and Town of Brookhaven Councilwoman Jane Bonner (C-Rocky Point) presented her with a proclamation from the town. “Thank you, Inge, for being such an advocate for our community,” Ruberto said.

Back to school in Miller Place

The Miller Place School District ardently opened its doors Sept. 4 to begin the 2018-19 school year. After spending the summer months adding new technologies and developing new systems to enhance students’ educational experience, each school organized activities to celebrate the excitement of the first day back to school. “The first day back from summer recess is a unique and important experience for each of our schools throughout the District,” said Superintendent Dr. Marianne Cartisano. “We believe taking the initiative to create a welcoming atmosphere on the first day of school sets the tone for the rest of the school year. Our students come back on their first day eager to learn with positive attitudes. We are excited to see what our new and returning students will accomplish over the course of the next ten months.” At Andrew Muller Primary School, Cartisano and board of education President Johanna Testa helped students in kindergarten through second grade ease the transition from summer recess to a new school year. Students were helped to navigate the hallways and locate their classrooms with the assistance of the building’s faculty and members of central administration.

At Laddie A. Decker Sound Beach School, fifth graders started the year off strong by working collectively with their classmates on back to school word search puzzles. The students challenged themselves by searching for new vocabulary words in both a creative and educational manner. At North Country Road Middle School, Principal Matthew Clark held an assembly in the cafeteria for eighth grade students on their responsibilities as new leaders in the school. Clark discussed the significance of being role models as the oldest students in the building and the expectations for this school year. At Miller Place High School, the seniors eagerly explored the senior lounge for the first time, a room exclusively offered to the standing senior class. The upperclassmen have the privilege to utilize the senior lounge for communal learning, enjoy lunch in a quiet space or to bond with peers. “There is a lot we are excited about this school year,” Cartisano said. “Each member of our faculty and administration has worked diligently throughout the summer to ensure we kick off the year on the right foot.” For more information about the Miller Place School District and upcoming events, visit the District website at www.millerplace.k12.ny.us.

Opinion

Editorial

Informed electorate a must

When voters head to booths Thursday to participate in several statewide primaries, it is unlikely that the race for a judicial seat presiding over Suffolk County’s Surrogate’s Court will be at the top of their minds. We understand. The governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general races are likely what will drive primary voters to the polls, and deservedly so, as those are high-profile positions with juicy political implications for those who track things like the shifting nuclei of both parties. So for those who haven’t paid close attention to what’s going on in a judicial race for a court most people probably never heard of, there’s a few things we think voters should know. Tara Scully and Theresa Whelan are set to square off in the Democratic primary Sept. 13. Scully, a registered Republican, has already gotten the nod to secure that party line in the general election, meaning if she wins the Democratic primary, her name will appear next to both major political parties come November. Whelan, on the other hand, is an actual Democrat, though Newsday has reported that based on a deal cut by party bosses, if she wins the primary she’ll also be granted the Conservative Party line in the general election. Have we lost you yet? To summarize, on November’s general election ballot either a Republican will have both major lines or a Democrat will be listed as both a Democrat and a Conservative. To try to get to the bottom of this mess, we invited the candidates in for a discussion with the TBR News Media editorial staff Sept. 6. While we are not endorsing a candidate, we have some thoughts we’d like to share anyway. We admire what Scully did — stepping up and answering a call for a candidate unshackled by predetermined deals. She was able to earn enough petition signatures in a short window of time to run on both major party lines. However, if the result is she is representing both Democrats and Republicans on the ballot in November, it’s difficult to argue that voters still have a fair choice. And while Whelan is a Democrat seeking a nod from her own party, rewarding backroom dealing designed to circumvent the will of voters is not a practice that should be encouraged either. Having said all of that, after being in a room with the candidates for an hour, a few things became very clear. Both candidates are running with their hearts in the right place. They each expressed a desire to preside over a court that requires a touch of empathy and compassion, with fairness being of the utmost importance and politics divorced from the job. We also love to see political races featuring two accomplished and qualified women. Each has served as president of the Women’s Bar Association in addition to a litany of other impressive resume lines. Both seem to realize as well that they are essentially — no pun intended — surrogates having the political baggage marring this race imposed upon them. The discussion was respectful, truthful and honest, and each expressed that she had nothing bad to say about the other personally. Regardless of the outcome of this race, we hope what voters glean from it is yet another reminder that citizen vigilance is not just important for a healthy democracy, but in reality, it’s the only thing keeping it alive. Research candidates. Figure out what these people stand for before you enter a voting booth or be prepared to live with the consequences.

Letters to the editor

Don’t destroy old buildings for revitalization An open letter to Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine (R): With great urgency and a deep sense of respect and appreciation for the Town of Brookhaven people, culture and historic identity, I write this note. Our community is at risk of losing our heritage if plans to demolish buildings encompassing parts of Main Street and its surroundings in Port Jefferson Station are approved. It’s not just people or books that tell our story, but also buildings uniting our community that say quite a bit through their characters and features sharing the story of purpose, residents and commerce. I learned to understand how buildings tell our story from my dad, an immigrant who spent his life restoring old houses. He carefully relayed how buildings provide us with our heritage, and when they are destroyed, part of our story goes with them. Buildings act like fabric holding a community together. They also tell the story of our ancestors.

This is not to say we should turn our Main streets into museums limiting the economic resourcefulness of the buildings or the owners and residents, but quite the contrary. As a businesswoman, I’m committed to a healthy, prosperous Main Street area. In fact, these areas are often successful because they do well to remember their story, rather than strip it away. The best towns are the ones who can tell their story, learning from their history and respecting the current residents, where none are left off or left out. This brings me to my final point. “Informed conversion” is a principle that takes into account a building’s situatedness or context within a community. This includes their physical, social and community setting. In the case of Port Jefferson Station, we need to take into account several buildings, which only magnifies their importance as individual buildings. Together, they form a section of the town and tell our rich story. Even though the owner of the buildings in question has in some

cases boarded up these buildings, rather than invested in their maintenance, causing a major eyesore, that does not diminish the significance of the buildings. Instead, we should examine why the buildings are being boarded up and hold the owner accountable for the harm inflicted on our neighbors and their livelihoods. Port Jefferson Station’s buildings are unique, they tell a story of the town and its people. If they are torn down, we destroy our own story, our own history. Instead, it is far more useful to understand the intrinsic value of these buildings, and approach them with the idea of sustaining them. In this way we protect the history of Port Jefferson Station, maintain the integrity of the community, appreciate the contribution of the town’s early residents, and understand how together these valuable components make up the fabric of our town. Gretchen Specht Miller Place

Vote Zeldin out for position on guns Lee Zeldin, our representative in the U.S. Congress, is too extreme to represent our voting district. Perhaps most illustrative of this point, he co-sponsored the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which would allow people to carry concealed weapons in New York if they have the right to carry concealed firearms in another state. But most other states require little to no demonstration of proficiency with a handgun or psychological well-being in order to receive a concealed carry permit.

The Violence Policy Center has documented that since May 2007 more than 1,200 people have died at the hands of persons who held concealed carry permits. These incidents include 31 mass shootings and the killing of 21 law enforcement officers. Concealed carry holders who committed fatal shootings have documented histories of domestic abuse, substance misuse and suicidal behavior. So Congressman Zeldin wants these concealed carry holders from other states,

some of whom have violent histories, to be able to come to New York with a concealed firearm. No thank you. This act passed the U.S. House but thankfully our more sensible U.S. Senators have not taken up this legislation. We may not be as lucky next time. Before you cast a vote for Lee Zeldin, please consider the impacts of this dangerous legislation. Jaymie Meliker Port Jefferson

Sticking up for community news We moved to Miller Place 18 years ago and one of the first things we did was get a subscription to the Times Beacon Record. During the years it has been a source of information, education and entertainment from and about our local community, state

and nation. Contrary to the harangue of our current president, the press is not the enemy of the people, but the voice of the people. We rely on you to ask the questions we cannot ask, and to investigate the issues that can affect our daily lives. The

Times Beacon Record is a great paper and I want to thank you for your journalistic service to our communities.

The opinions of columnists and letter writers are their own. They do not speak for the newspaper.

School is open, drive carefully

I

didn’t see a horrifying and preventable accident this morning. I didn’t see a little girl, let’s call her Erica, on her way to her first week of school. Erica, who, in our story, is 10 years old, wants to be a veterinarian, and has pictures of animals all over her room. She begged her parents so long for a kitten that they relented. They saw how well she took D. None care of the kitten, putting drops of the above in her eyes when BY DANIEL DUNAIEF she needed them, making sure she got the correct shots and even holding her kitten in the office when they

had to draw blood to test for feline leukemia, which, fortunately, her kitten didn’t have. Two years after she got her kitten, Erica continued to ask for additional animals, adding a fish, a rabbit and a hamster to her collection. Each morning, Erica wakes up and checks on all the animals in her little zoo, well, that’s what her father calls it, to see how they’re doing. Her mother is convinced that the animals respond to her voice, moving closer to the edge of the cage or to the door when they hear her coming. When mother leaves to pick up Erica from school, the animals become restless. I didn’t see Erica walking with her best friend Jenna. Like Erica, Jenna has a dream. She wants to pitch for the United States in softball in the Olympics. Jenna is much taller than her best friend and has an incredible arm. Jenna hopes the Olympics decides to have softball when she’s old enough and strong enough to play. Jenna thinks bringing a gold

medal to her father, who is in the Marines and has traveled the world protecting other people, would be the greatest accomplishment she could ever achieve. I didn’t see a man, whom I’ll call Bob and who lives only four blocks from Erica and Jenna, put on his carefully pressed light-blue shirt with the matching tie that morning. I didn’t witness him kissing his wife Alicia, the way he does every morning before he rushes off to his important job. I didn’t see him climb into his sleek SUV and back quickly out of his driveway on the dead-end block he and Alicia chose more than a dozen years earlier. I didn’t see Bob get the first indication from his iPhone 7 that he had several messages. I didn’t witness Bob rolling his eyes at the first few messages. I didn’t see him drive quickly toward the crosswalk where Erica and Jenna were walking. The girls had slowed down in the crosswalk because Jenna pointed out a deer she could see across the street in a backyard.

Jenna knew Erica kept an animal diary and she was always on the lookout for anything her friend could include in her cherished book. I didn’t see Bob — his attention diverted by a phone he had to extend to see clearly — roll too quickly into the crosswalk, sending both girls flying. I didn’t see the ambulances racing to the scene, the parents with heavy hearts getting the unimaginable phone calls, and the doctors doing everything they could to fix Jenna’s battered right arm — her pitching arm. I didn’t see it because it didn’t happen. What I did see, however, was a man in an SUV, driving way too quickly through a crosswalk, staring at his phone instead of looking out for Erica, Jenna and everyone else’s children on his way to work. It’s an old message that we should repeat every year: “School is open, drive carefully.” This Column is reprinted from September 14, 2017 issue.

hen we have visitors, we like to show off our neighborhoods. We take our guests to the beaches to admire the beautiful shoreline and we bring them to our villages to enjoy restaurants and shops. But some stores have been forced to close largely because so much shopping now takes place on the internet. The owners and managers of stores that remain have learned that they must do more Between than in the past to you and me attract customers. That is true of BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF malls, department stores and especially smaller retail shops. To compete with the convenient internet, they have to offer an appealing experience for the consumer to visit them.

We are proud of our downtowns and want to publicize their efforts to attract business, especially for their best season before the holidays. To provide a local shopping event and a fun experience, we have arranged a private holiday treat at the Bates House opposite the Emma Clark Library in Setauket. Hometown stores and services from Huntington, Cold Spring Harbor, Northport, Smithtown, St. James, Stony Brook, Setauket-East Setauket, Port Jefferson, Port Jefferson Station, Mount Sinai, Miller Place, Rocky Point, Sound Beach, Shoreham, Wading River, Centereach, Selden and Lake Grove will feature their offerings at this charming venue for our local residents. Those who come out to enjoy this showcase will find a discount of 20 percent for some products and services. Shoppers will be exposed to neighbors and friends as they sample community gatherings.
