County plans forum to discuss legalized marijuana BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Suffolk County is seeking public community input as New York state inches closer to potentially becoming the 11th state to legalize recreational marijuana use. The county Legislature, with both the Health and Public Safety committees, will hold a public hearing Monday, Feb. 25, at 6:30 p.m., where members of the community are invited to share their thoughts on the potential impact of legalized cannabis. “[There are] so many considerations that surround legalizing recreational marijuana,” Legislature Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory (D-Amityville) said in a press release. “This is a new industry that will impact society at every level.” Though acknowledging that legalization could potentially bring revenue to the county, Gregory is more concerned of how legislation of marijuana could empower the black market. He said he is in favor of the continued decriminalization of marijuana, pointing to studies that show minorities are more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than others. Chair of the Health Committee, William “Doc” Spencer (D-Centerport), said he agrees with Gregory on decriminalization of marijuana and said it is important to inform the public on this issue. “We have to do our due diligence,” Spencer said. “There are a lot of logistical issues and
concerns we have to address.” Gregory said the legislators are entering uncharted territory and want to make sure they hear all sides of the issue and explore all angles. They also want to be prepared should this matter come before the county Legislature. “It is important for the sake of regional consistency that, if possible, local governments have a unified approach, and in that spirit I look forward to hearing from our residents and local leaders,” the presiding officer said. “For decades it was drilled into [people’s] heads that this is bad.” Spencer said he is personally against the legalization of recreational marijuana, reasoning there should be a significant amount of time given over preparedness for something like this. He added despite the significant impact legalization would have on the county, it could also have unforeseen consequences, especially concerning both hard and soft drug use. “We are in the middle of an opioid addiction crisis and we have seen a rise in vaping in young people,” he said. Spencer is also concerned about people driving under the influence of marijuana. “This is new territory, it will have an impact on many people’s lives,” Spencer said. “It’s important that we as a community understand this and are prepared.” The hearing will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the county Legislature’s William H. Rogers Building, located at 725 Veterans Memorial Highway in Smithtown.
Despite a rocky start to the past fall semester, members of an adult continuing education program persist in improving their lot with Stony Brook University. In January, SBU administrators invited members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, a program that offers workshops, lectures and activities to retired and semiretired individuals, to participate in focus groups to provide feedback on changes SBU implemented to the program during the fall semester of 2018. The changes included OLLI classes on campus being held only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays instead of every day; class duration changing from 75 minutes to 60; and OLLI students using metered parking lots on campus instead of parking in a designated area. While members received hang tags so they wouldn’t have to put coins in the meters, they were charged an additional $75 in OLLI fees per semester for the new parking agreement. The changes led to approximately 400 past members declining to enroll in the fall of 2018. Diane Perillo, director of finance and administration for the School of Professional Development, which oversees OLLI, said during the January focus groups, SBU administrators received positive feedback from OLLI members about the previous semester that she described as a pilot plan, and she is confident the program will grow. The School of Professional Development also surveyed members to gather their thoughts about the changes, and the director said the current program members helped provide insight on how to move forward. “Overall members were happy with the parking that was made available to them,” Perillo said. “Membership meetings have been extremely positive, the new leadership within the School of Professional Development has been sharing information with members and, when possible, acting on requests and communicating changes to the membership.” Perillo said there was a decline in enrollment in the fall, which was expected, and the 400 members who did not return were also surveyed. She said some did not return for workshops due to illness or having a loved one who was sick. Others reported they only attended Tuesday and Thursday in the past. Peter Stubberfield, in an email to The Village Times Herald, said he was one of the 400 who didn’t return to the OLLI workshops this fall due to the parking fee and reduction
of class time, and he said he didn’t receive a survey from the university asking him why he didn’t continue with the program. Perillo said new and past members have the option to sign up for OLLI workshops in the spring for $162.50 with a parking fee of $37.50, which is half of the yearly rate. As a rule, OLLI does not offer prorated memberships. She said spring workshops would once again be 75 minutes, and the break between classes will be reduced. While workshops are only held on campus Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, the director said there are off-campus classes held Tuesdays and Thursdays. “We have seen a slight increase in membership this spring,” she said. “We are confident that as we move into next year, we will see an increase in new members and with returning members.” John Gobler, one of the workshop leaders, said he attended one of the focus groups, and he was pleased that SBU’s administration acknowledged the drop in membership. He added that while the fall semester was rocky, he is positive about the future of OLLI. “I know there are people coming back,” he said. “I have already run into some people who said they are coming back,” adding they told him they heard from others the program was getting better. Sue Parlatore, a member of OLLI’s advisory board, said at first members who signed up for the fall were worried about the changes, especially parking; however, she said the university accommodated them. She said she and others found the hour between classes was too much time and were happy to hear the time has been reduced to 30 minutes. “The university, in my opinion, they really do seem to be trying their best to make it work for us,” Parlatore said, adding that she feels the rumor that SBU does not welcome them is unfounded. She said those who didn’t enroll again in the fall should consider coming back. “I would encourage anybody to try it,” she said. “I think they would be very pleasantly surprised.” Perillo is also optimistic. “I am confident that as a community we will be able to work out a plan for fall 2019 and spring 2020 that we will re-inspire members to return and bring back their workshops,” she said. “If members choose not to return, I am confident that our current and new members will offer engaging, community-based noncredit workshops that will enable Stony Brook University’s OLLI program to continue to flourish.”

Democratic committee chairman on election/policies for next two years
BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM In the lexicon of tarot, cards used by soothsayers for divination, there are many cards used to describe a person’s lot in life. If Rich Schaffer, the Suffolk County Democratic Committee chairman, could be represented by any card, it would be the chariot. Schaffer is at the head of the race, with the Democrats taking majority positions in the New York State Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives, but he’s holding onto the reins of two horses, the moderate and far-left elements of his party, and he said his task is to keep both heading in the same direction. “My job’s been described as the therapist in chief,” said Schaffer, who is also Town of Babylon supervisor. “I’m always either talking somebody off the ledge or helping them through an issue.” In last year’s elections, the Democratic Party won big both in New York state and nationally, securing the state Senate as well as the Assembly, and gaining a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. It was a change of pace for the party, which was beleaguered after its loss during the 2016 elections that saw Donald Trump (R) sent to the White House.
In Suffolk County, many GOP members retained their seats despite hard campaigns from the Dems. Longtime Republican representatives such as state Sen. Ken LaValle (R-Port Jefferson) kept their seats in Albany, while U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) won out at 51.5 percent against his Democratic challenger Perry Gershon. Still, Schaffer said they have made strides in the county, pointing to the election of state Sen. Monica Martinez (D-Brentwood) who won out over her GOP rival Dean Murray by 2,996 votes. Schaffer added that he thinks the next time District 1 is up for grabs, it could swing blue. Suffolk County “has been blue in the past,” the Democratic committee chairman said. Specifically, he points to the 35-day government shutdown that was put on hold for three weeks Jan. 25. Schaffer laid the blame for the shutdown at the president’s feet and said his Republican supporters in Congress would take the brunt of the blame. “What they are doing to people’s livelihoods and their survival is unconscionable,” he said. “A political debate has now turned into almost scorched earth, where people’s lives are at stake.” On the state level Schaffer said there are, all in all, six Democratic members elected to the state Senate who will represent Long Island,

including new members Martinez and James Gaughran (D-Northport). This is important to the party commissioner, as in other years when the Democrats had majorities in both state houses, his experience was many of those focused on New York City rather than Long Island’s more suburban elements. The differences between those two subsets of Democrats is something Schaffer said he’s particularly aware of. Nationally, much has been said about the rise of much more leftleaning Democrats, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Bronx). She has been open about progressive ideas such as universal health care, establishing tuition-free colleges and trade schools, and creating a marginal tax system as
high as 70 percent, which would mostly affect those in the wealthiest tax brackets. A bill for single-payer health care is currently being circulated in the state Assembly. Schaffer said he was not against policies such as universal health care, but he wanted the discussion to be had up in Albany about how the state was planning to pay for that program. Schaffer also questioned the viability of a Cortez-like candidate in Suffolk County. “I mean it’s easy for [Cortez] to speak like she does with the district she comes from, when your main election battle is the primary,” Schaffer said. “When you’re running Suffolk County North Shore and your district is not as friendly registration wise, this gets to if you elect Democrats who support basic Democratic ideas.” Overall, Schaffer was adamant the best way to win Democratic seats in Suffolk County was to form coalitions, work off core democratic principles and promise to work toward local issues. “You can’t have Cortez running in East Northport,” he said. “Some people will argue with me that ‘Yes, you can,’ but it has not been my experience out here. That’s not to say we can’t have things on the progressive agenda, but they have to be spoken about in a way that’s going to get you 50 percent plus one.”

Trash or treasure: Towns seek new future for collected recyclables
The three North Shore towns of Brookhaven, Huntington and Smithtown are grappling with how to best recycle in 2019 after Brookhaven’s facility ground to a halt in October 2018. In that month, Brookhaven’s recycling contractor Green Stream Recycling prematurely terminated its 25-year agreement to operate the town’s recycling plant in Yaphank. The announcement came as collected recyclables piled up like mountains outside the Yaphank facility as China’s new National Sword policy took effect, implemented in January 2018, which set strict contamination limits on recyclable materials it would accept. Up until then, China had been the world’s largest importer of recycled materials, and now local towns had to scramble to find a new market to sell to. All three towns solicited bids from recycling companies in the hopes of finding the most efficient and green solution for its residents. The result is Brookhaven, Huntington and Smithtown have all taken slightly different approaches based on what services they’ve been offered. Residents have been puzzled by new recycling schedules, as the townships are still attempting to explain what has changed with their recycling and how it will impact the future.
out newspapers ads and broadcasted the changes on radio, television and social media at the tail end of 2018. The town is planning another media blitz for 2019, including another mailer to all residents along with additional newspaper and radio ads. The annual mailer sent to Brookhaven residents, which includes information about the new recycling system, costs $30,000. Otherwise the town has spent approximately $12,000 on newspaper ads and roughly $10,000 on radio ads so far. Andrade said the town is continuing to advertise the changes. Further changes to Brookhaven’s recycling system could again appear on the horizon. Matt Miner, chief of operations, said the town is looking for means of getting its recycling facility restarted, though this would require a new contractor to partner with Brookhaven. Andrade said he hopes to have the facility running again before the six-month contract with Smithtown is up. In addition, the recycling commissioner said he is awaiting news of the current litigation between the town and Green Stream over the voided contract. For now, Brookhaven is sticking with dual stream, as officials said single-stream recycling resulted in a worse quality product that at this point was near impossible to sell. For more information on recycling, visit: www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvsqRAl3QcU
Once the bottom of the recycling market fell out from China’s decision, Brookhaven was caught directly in the storm that followed, with the Green Stream facility being the center of multiple towns’ recycling efforts. “It’s not the system that so much changed, as much as what was allowable,” said Christopher Andrade, the town’s recycling commissioner. “[China] went down from 5 percent contamination to 0.5 percent. It wasn’t the equipment that caused the problem, it was the standard that caused the problem.” At the Jan. 17 Brookhaven Town Board meeting, council members unanimously voted to sign a $760,000 contract with West Babylon-based Winters Bros. Waste Systems of Long Island to take their materials to Smithtown’s Municipal Services Facility in Kings Park. The new standards mean Brookhaven residents can only put out the most common No. 1 and 2 plastics, which are collected together with aluminum such as food cans. Paper products are collected separately. The town asked that any unclean paper products such as used pizza boxes be thrown out with regular trash instead. Glass is no longer being picked curbside by the town, and instead can be placed at one of seven dropoff points located around the town. To advertise these changes, Brookhaven took
The Town of Smithtown opted to take a unique approach to dual-stream recycling by taking on two different contracts in hopes of getting their best payout for recycled materials. In December, Smithtown Supervisor Ed Wehrheim (R) signed a six-month contract with Winters Bros. Waste Systems of Long Island to pick up all collected paper and cardboard recycling in exchange for paying the town $30 per ton. These collections are expected to net Smithtown approximately $177,000 per year, if they choose to extend the contract. The town entered a separate contract with Islandia-based Trinity Transportation, which will take unprocessed curbside metals and plastics, limited to plastics Nos. 1 and 2, with $68 per ton being paid by the town, at a total cost of approximately $104,000 per year. Overall, the combination of two contracts along with money received from Brookhaven for shipping their recyclables for pickup, will net the town approximately $178,500 per year in total, according to town spokeswoman Nicole Garguilo. Residents who wish to recycle their glass bottles and containers can drop off materials at three locations throughout town: Municipal Services Facility in Kings Park, Town Hall and the Highway Department building on Route

Smithtown Town Board has budgeted $16,000 for its public campaign regarding the return to dual-stream, the least of any township but also with the smallest population to reach. Garguilo said many of the graphics and printed materials have been designed in-house, which has helped save money. She added that the supervisor and town officials will be speaking with senior citizen groups and community associations throughout early 2019 to help re-educate residents who may not be technologically savvy.

Huntington After the Yaphank plant’s closure, the Town of Huntington signed a two-year contract with Omni Recycling of Babylon returning to a dual-stream process with papers and cardboard being collected on alternate weeks from plastics, aluminum and glass. The town’s total recycling costs will depend on how well the town can re-educate residents and their compliance, according to Supervisor Chad Lupinacci (R). “The only vendors continuing single-stream recycling would have trucked it off Long Island at a cost of $120 to $135 a ton,” he said. “It’s a matter of re-educating the public and getting them used to the old system again.” Lupinacci said to stick with a single-stream process would have cost the town approximately $1.7 million to $2 million a year based on bids received from contractors. As such, the
town decided to move to a dual-stream process where its costs will be determined by how much of the collected material is clean enough to be repurposed. The town will receive $15 per ton of recyclable papers and cardboard delivered to Omni Recycling, and be billed $78 per contaminated ton as determined by the facility. “We require lids and covers on the recycling bins to reduce contamination from dirt and moisture,” the supervisor said. “Soiled and moldy paper are not recyclable.” The Town of Huntington expects to collect 900,000 tons of paper and cardboard from its residents. Assuming that 80 percent will be clean enough to recycle, Lupinacci said the town will wind up paying out approximately $32,000 for its paper goods. Unlike Brookhaven and Smithtown, Huntington town residents can continue to put all plastics, Nos. 1 through 7, and glass bottles out for curbside pickup. Based on an average of 550,000 tons collected annually, the town will pay $75 a ton, at a cost of $412,500 a year, to recycle these materials. The Town of Huntington has set aside nearly $86,000 in 2019 — more than Brookhaven and Smithtown combined — to educate its residents about the return to dual stream. According to Huntington’s website, dual-stream recycling is the collection of bottles, cans and plastics one week, with paper and corrugated cardboard the following week. Half that budget will be paid by a grant obtained from the state Department of Environmental Conservation, RECYCLING CONTINUED ON A10

With great sadness, the family of Pam Trachtenberg acknowledges her loss on the afternoon of Jan. 19. The Setauket resident was the loving wife of Dr. Albert S. Trachtenberg, who died just four months earlier, and the beloved mother of Myles and Moira. She was also the adored grandmother of Myles B. and Jeremy M. Trachtenberg and Acadia and Esther Thielking. Born in 1937, Pam, née Pearl Ann Mack, grew up on the outskirts of Gary, Indiana. She took several long bus rides each day in order to attend high school in the city. She graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor of Nursing in 1959, and then made the long journey to New York City to begin her career as a nurse. Her natural leadership skills led Pam to become the head of nursing at the Bronx VA Hospital, on the locked psych ward. She was later recruited to become the head nurse of a Catholic nursing home in the Bronx. In 1963, Pam retired as a nurse to become a full-time mother and household manager, jobs that she treated just as enthusiastically and efficiently as nursing. She was an original do-ityourself virtuoso. In turn, she was an electrician, plumber, pool mechanic, generator technician, painter, furniture designer, home decorator, carpenter and clothing designer/sewing genius/ upholsterer. To share her knowledge, she taught a continuing education DIY class for women at the local community college.
She also generously donated her time and talents in the community, most notably for the Island Symphony Orchestra and St. Charles Hospital, and almost always became the leader of whatever endeavor was at hand. She had a talent for executing unique and elegant fundraising galas — creating inventive themes, decorating to match and finding the perfect entertainment. She also held a term as the president of the Sisterhood at Temple Beth Sholom in Smithtown. In her spare time, Pam also enjoyed skiing, tennis, fishing and travel. Pam returned to nursing as an empty-nester, and she worked as a rehabilitation nurse for Liberty Mutual for several years. As a grandmother, Pam proved that she had never lost her ability to play. For many years she ran a week-long “Granny Camp” at her home for her four grandchildren, spoiling them with love, swimming, arts and crafts, homemade chocolate chip cookies and a celebratory Happy Unbirthday Party. In summer months, she could be found from early morning to dusk nurturing both flowers and a bountiful vegetable garden. Her other greatest joy, in all seasons, was cooking delicious gourmet meals for family and friends, often featuring produce and herbs from her kitchen garden. Pam will be greatly missed by her family and friends for her boundless energy, creativity, her attention to detail, her willingness to help anyone in need, her endless curiosity to figure out how things worked and her analytical mind, which enabled her to solve just about any problem with precision and style. But we’ll miss most of all her endless love for her family. At the end of a visit, when a family member would say, “I love you,” she would always reply, “I love you more.”

Marion Lane Banks Rogers, of St. James, died Jan. 27, at the age of 100. She was born Dec. 26, 1918, in Missouri, grew up in Georgia and moved to New York City when she was 20. There she met and married Dr. Frederick Rand Rogers (1894–1972). He was a radical American educator, pioneer of physical fitness testing and inventor of the Physical Fitness Index. They moved to California where their daughter Marion Lane Rogers was born. They spent years in Palo Colorado Canyon, south of Monterey, where they built their own home. They eventually moved to New York, living in Sea Gate in Brooklyn. Their final home was in St. James. Marion worked at the Environmental Defense Fund during its fledgling years, contributing to safer water, rivers and streams all over the U.S. and the growth of one of America´s most important environmental organizations. She was the author of “Acorn Days: The Environmental Defense Fund and How It Grew,” the history of EDF. She often wrote to newspapers and magazines, commenting on cultural and political events, and she wrote many stories. She was a vivacious, spirited, humorous and clever writer and corresponded on her trusty typewriter with friends and family all of her life. She knew the words to every song and play that she had ever heard, read or seen. Marion loved to garden and
planted and nurtured gorgeous grounds, filled with all variety of flowers, trees and vegetables at their gracious home in St. James. She was always entertaining friends, neighbors, children and family. She also loved horses and for decades hosted many a riotous Kentucky Derby party with her daughter Marion. No one wanted to miss this annual event. She adored animals, had many cats and especially loved dogs that always sat at her feet by the fireplace, which was almost always aglow. Marion had a wry sense of humor, was raised as a gracious, accomplished, southern woman, retaining her Georgian accent all her life. She was a devoted friend and mentor for many younger women in her extended family and a powerful source of inspiration, moderation and joy to one and all who knew her. She was a staunch believer in democratic principles, equality, justice and civility. As her daughter has said, “She was determined to share her knowledge and love of family and environment with this world.” Her many friends and extended family mourn the passing of this very great and wise woman. She is survived by her daughter Marion Lane Rogers and numerous grandchildren and great-

On Thursday morning, Aug. 17, 1780, fog covered the Connecticut coast and obscured any view of three whaleboats as they slid through the marsh grass and into the shallow water at the northeast corner of Black Rock Harbor. Six of the men in each boat quietly slid their oars into the water and together with each sweep, without a word spoken, the men’s oars began a rhythmic parallel stroke that moved the crafts quickly through the harbor and into Long Island Sound. In the traditional whaleboat, to get leverage for speed, five oarsmen sat on opposite sides of the boat from their oarlocks, and their long oars propelled the whaleboat at up to 5 or 6 miles an hour. However, on these whaleboats, with as many as six additional soldiers, their arms and equipment, it was not practical to have long oars working across the boat so, especially for long distances, sailing rather than rowing, was the main means of propulsion. The three identical whaleboats were each 30 feet long, lapstrake-built and pointed at both ends. They were light, being constructed of a strong oak frame and planked with halfinch cedar, to form a relatively narrow and sleek vessel that was exceptionally seaworthy
and highly maneuverable. These open boats, greyhounds of the Sound, were also easy to enter and exit, making them exceptional platforms from which to surprise and successfully attack slower and less maneuverable craft. As the whaleboats moved away from the shore and headed south for Long Island, ripples and spray off the top of the swells ahead indicated a moderate northwest wind, and the men shipped their oars and raised the mast and sail on each whaleboat. They then sat lower in the boat on the starboard or windward side to add stability. Every soldier and sailor was usually equipped with a musket and/or a pistol, a short sword or saber and often a belt ax, as well as a powder horn, cartridge box and other equipment. The man in charge of the three whaleboats, Caleb Brewster, sat in the bow of the lead whaleboat peering through his telescope to see what other activity was around him on Long Island Sound. Brewster was a seaman and a courier spy for Gen. George Washington, but he was also an artillery captain in the Continental Army, and his three crews of sailors were partly recruited from the ranks of the men he commanded. Brewster’s crews also contained a number of Long Island friends who were trusted associates such as Lt. George Smith of Smithtown and Capt. Abraham Cooper CALEB BREWSTER CONTINUED ON A11

Brookhaven, Smithtown, Huntington recycling

according to Lupinacci. To date, the town has spent $1,000 on social media ads and roughly $43,000 on printed materials including direct mailers and calendars. The supervisor said it seems to be paying off. “Omni-Westbury, [which] does our collection, said the quality of our first week’s recyclables was better than expected,” Lupinacci said. The first collection of papers and cardboard in January yielded 104 tons, only 10 percent of which was considered contaminated, according to the supervisor. “I think people are adjusting, but it will take a few weeks,” he said.

Glass: Is it worth collecting?
Glass is a product many town officials have found difficult to sell, as there’s not much market for it. Brookhaven and Smithtown are no longer accepting it as part of curbside pickup, but rather asking their residents to bring glass bottles to various drop-off locations. Collections at these locations has increased, according to Miner, and Brookhaven Town has installed larger containers to meet that demand.
Henry L. Olsen
To date, Brookhaven has sent two pilot shipments with Jersey City-based Pace Glass Recycling, and Miner said the town is looking to set up some sort of long-term contract. Andrade said the town is not currently making money from sending the glass to Pace, but the only costs incurred are from the town employees hauling the product up to New Jersey. “This is actually a recycling of the glass, which most of the towns on Long Island have not been able to achieve,” Miner said. Andrade added there is a chance Brookhaven could land a deal with the New Jersey-based company. “You have to establish relationships, so we’re still in the beginning of the dance there,” the recycling commissioner said. “They’re taking a look at the quality of our material … they’re liking the material so I’m cautiously optimistic.” Smithtown elected officials renewed a prior inter-municipal agreement with Brookhaven at their Jan. 24 meeting, agreeing to ship the town’s collected glass to their neighbor for processing.
Henry L. “Hank” Olsen died Jan. 9 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Olsen was born in New York City Feb. 6, 1928, and lived in Norway in his early childhood years. He returned to New York and served in the U.S. Navy during WWII. After being honorably discharged he married the love of his life, Florence, to whom he was wed for 70 years. Florence preceded Olsen’s death in 2017. Olsen loved the outdoors and enjoyed many trips with family by camping, boating, hunting and fishing. He served as a Boy Scout troop leader for Troop 201 in the 1960s, and for most his career worked in the insurance industry before retiring as a marine surveyor in 2006.

CALEB BREWSTER Continued from A8
Woodhull, formerly of Old Mans on Long Island, now a resident of Fairfield, Connecticut, and captain of one of Brewster’s whaleboats. In addition to the 12 men, each whaleboat had a small swivel gun on the bow powerful enough to put a hole in an enemy boat below the waterline or disable a mast with a lucky shot when close in. These three whaleboats were a potent fighting force, able to attack and capture the sloops, schooners and small British and Tory brigs that patrolled the Sound or the plunderers, both Whigs and Tories, who regularly attacked residents on Long Island and along the Connecticut shoreline. On this day, Brewster was headed to Long Island to pick up intelligence from his friend and fellow Culper spy Abraham Woodhull. When he arrived, he found that Woodhull was in New York City and would be relaying his messages by way of Austin Roe by 2 p.m. on the following day. Brewster had to wait. On Friday morning Brewster and his whaleboat crews were attacked by plunderers Glover and Hoyght —possibly Ezekiel Glover and Simon Hoyt, refugees from Long Island — and their crews. In Brewster’s report to Benjamin Tallmadge, Washington’s intelligence chief, he wrote, ”I came from Long Island this afternoon but have got no dispatches. Culper has been down to New York. I waited until this morning and he was to send them by two o’clock but before he sent them I was attacked
by Glover and Hoyght and left one man taken and one wounded. We killed one on the spot ... Austin told me that Sir Henry Clinton went down to the east end of the Island on the sixteenth. Don’t fail to let me have two crews if you can of Continental soldiers.” In another letter to Tallmadge written on Monday, Aug. 21, Brewster reported, “I this morning came from the island & got three boats last Saturday night and went over in search of Glover and Hoyght but could hear nothing of them. They never stayed to bury their dead man, they carried another away with them mortally wounded. Setauket is full of troops. It is thought they are going eastward. Austin came to me yesterday and told me I had best not come on to the middle of next week as the troops is so thick in town and marching eastward.” Brewster continued to patrol Long Island Sound and bring intelligence from Long Island to Fairfield, Connecticut, until Dec. 7, 1782, when he and several of his whaleboats chased and attacked three enemy boats about midSound. They captured two boats but the third escaped. Brewster was wounded when a musket ball went through his chest. He reported that he continued to fight until the enemy was captured and then collapsed. Every man on the enemy’s boats was either killed or wounded as were the men on Brewster’s boats. Brewster spent many months recovering in the hospital in Black Rock. Beverly C.

Scout for vets
State Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket) and Town of Brookhaven Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station) attended the Eagle Scout Court of Honor for Steven Fontana from Boy Scout Troop 377 in East Setauket. The event was held at the Long Island State Veterans Home at Stony Brook University. For his Eagle Scout project, Steven replaced damaged and broken boards on an outside deck area, cleaned the deck area and refinished the entire deck at the veterans home. He purchased an outdoor clock and outdoor thermometer that were mounted so that the veterans could view them easily from the deck. Through his successful fundraiser, Steven also purchased two bird feeders with mounting hardware and 90 pounds of wild bird seed. The balance of the money he raised was donated to the veterans home. “We commend Eagle Scout Fontana for his service to support our veterans,” Cartright said. “His project will provide the Long Island State Veterans Home residents with an improved outdoor recreation area. We are proud of his accomplishments, his commitment and service to the community. Mr. Fontana serves as a role model to younger Scouts and aspiring Eagle Scouts.” Since the award was presented in 1912, no more than 4 percent of all Scouts have attained the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest

Really getting to know a neighborhood requires a little extra time and attention. TEST DRIVE YOUR COMMUTE Before deciding on a new home, take a test drive of your potential commute. How far are you willing to drive back and forth to work each day? It can be easy to assume an answer to this question, but it is en-
tirely different to actually live it. The “perfect” place may not seem so perfect if you don’t feel like you spend much time there. TAKE A WALK AFTER SCHOOL Walking your new potential neighborhood is a great way to get a feel for it. Take your stroll soon after schools get out and see how many children are walking around, how
traffic picks up (or doesn’t), and just generally how active your neighbors are during the day. Are there restaurants, cafes or shops near by? A lot of through traffic? All these things will help you gauge the atmosphere in the neighborhood. COUNT ‘FOR SALE’ SIGNS Drive through the streets of a neighborhood and count the number of “for sale” and “foreclosure”
signs. Are there multiple signs down a single street? While this could just be a coincidence in terms of changes of life circumstances for a group of neighbors, this also could be a sign of a potential issue. You want to be sure you are investing in a stable neighborhood – not one that is about to turn a corner. Greenshoot Media

Letters to the editor
Having the pot talk
I would like to respond to the TBR News Media editorial from Jan. 10 titled “Bridges, not walls.” It is interesting that the editorial states that the president was “fact checked,” yet failed to mention some important facts relating to the border situation. Consider the fact that depending on the source you believe there are estimates of between 11 to 22 million people in this country illegally. Just for some perspective, that is somewhere between almost double the entire population of Long Island — more than 7.8 million in 2017 — and compares with the 2018 population of the entire state of New York, which was almost 20 million, according to Wikipedia. Clearly, the border security measures proposed by both parties over the years have not been effective. I know visa overstays have contributed to this problem as
Over time, parents have learned to have conversations with their kids about drug use — whether they should not use at all or to use responsibly. With New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) stating his hope to pass legislation to legalize recreational marijuana during his recent 2019 State of the State address — something that has been in the works for years — we think the time is right to discuss marijuana use in the same way we do with cigarettes or alcohol. While laws will likely prevent minors from buying the drug, legalizing means, in general, it will be easier to find, and parents may need to remind teenagers that just because something is for sale, just as with other drugs, it doesn’t mean they can or should purchase it. Of course, what’s available at parties always comes into play. Many times, parents may have the talk about alcohol with their children, stressing that their judgment can easily be impaired after only a drink or two, but do they include that smoking a joint can do the same? Just like with alcohol, it’s not safe to drive a car or operate machinery after using marijuana, as it can impair judgment, motor coordination and reaction time. The sage advice from parents that they would rather have their children wake them in the middle of the night with a phone call asking to be picked up at a party than having them get behind the wheel after drinking — or in a car with someone who has been — would apply to marijuana use as well. Besides waking up mom or dad, there are always the options of sleeping in the house where the party is taking place, getting a ride from a designated driver, or getting a cab or Uber. That’s a golden rule that even adults need to abide by as driving while impaired by a drug in New York state can lead to a $500 to $1,000 fine, a license suspension for at least six months and a possible oneyear jail term. If marijuana is legalized, being over the age limit will mean smoking or eating edible cannabis will become a choice, rather than a secretive, unlawful vice. And if recreational use of pot becomes legal, due to the danger of impairment, despite the new law, many employers may still have random drug testing — something for people to consider as they seek employment. If state officials legalize the recreational use of marijuana, there will be something else in common with cigarettes. While many may think smoking a joint doesn’t cause the same health problems as cigarettes, according to the American Lung Association, smoking marijuana can still pose a risk to lung health. To help with discussions about pot use, residents can find out what’s on the minds of others Feb. 25 when the Suffolk County Legislature invites people to share their thoughts about legalizing recreational marijuana at a public hearing at the William H. Rogers Building in Smithtown. We at TBR News Media will be there. With the possibility of New York becoming the 11th state to legalize recreational use of marijuana, it’s time for parents to get ahead of any problems by discussing drug use with their children.

Views relating to the border situation well. However, that does not mean a physical border barrier of some type is not a necessary component of any comprehensive border security plan. Just as our schools have secured their entrances with physical barriers — locks and vestibules — first, in addition to technology and staff, it is reasonable to do the same at our border. Another fact not mentioned is the MS-13 gang problem that has devastated Long Island, where more than two dozen murders have occurred since 2010 of mostly young minority victims. That is not a “manufactured crisis” as some other letter writers have called it. It is real people dying like the four young men slaughtered in a park approximately 12 miles from the Three Village area. Is that overlooked because it doesn’t fit a certain ideology to acknowledge? God forbid that happened in Avalon Park or
West Meadow Beach, would some of my more liberal friends feel the same about border security? Would it be a “manufactured crisis” then? The MS-13 problem isn’t only on Long Island. It is happening in other parts of our country as well. Throughout this debate, all sides agree that legal immigration is a good thing for our country. Can’t we also agree that breaking our laws is never a good thing? We have been promised that our borders would be secured for decades and it never happened. This president is taking action. Whether you love him or hate him, maybe, just maybe, he can achieve what others didn’t. Let’s try to be reasonable and not use “bumper sticker” slogans like, “Bridges, not walls,” shall we? Charles Cozzolino Setauket
Global warming personal views vs. science We wish to thank George Altemose for bringing the subject of global warming to these pages, as it is one of the most important issues facing our planet today. Although he and almost everyone else has moved on from denying that the Earth is warming, the crucial question now is what is the cause? To understand the cause of anything, it is important to gather all kinds of observations and measurements, and see if different hypotheses can explain what has been observed. Climate scientists have been doing this for the past century, and now a very large majority have concluded that the cause of the warming is increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere — the highest in 800,000 years — from the vastly increased burning of fossil fuels since the beginning of the industrial era. The
mechanism for this warming by CO2 has been understood since 1896, and detailed models of the process have improved greatly in the past years. In 2001, the models correctly predicted the warming that we have seen since then, and improved models can now give us an idea of where we will be in 30 years — and it is not good. The leaders of almost all of the nations in the world have heeded the advice of the climate scientists and agreed to try to put us on a path of decreasing the CO2 that we put into the atmosphere. One of the most important things that can be done is to temporarily use natural gas as fuel, since for the same amount of energy, it releases only half as much CO2 as does burning coal or oil. Weaning the economy from oil is much harder. More efficient vehicles will help but the real solution is to switch
to electric vehicles that will ultimately get their energy from renewable, clean sources to make electricity. These transitions will not be easy, and there will be costs, but there are also tremendous opportunities for businesses to open up new markets for new products. Any plan must also include ways to help those whose livelihood is displaced by changing sources of energy. But one thing is absolutely clear: For the good of the world and for the future of our grandchildren, we must do it, no matter that our president and others substitute their gut feelings for facts and rationality. Gene Sprouse and Peter Bond Editor’s note: The authors are both retired physicists who teach an Osher Lifelong Learning Institute workshop at Stony Brook University that includes energy and climate change issues.
The goals of the North Country Patriots As a member of the North Country Patriots who has been standing on the corner of Route 25A and North Country Road since the beginning, I can say there has been a big change in 16 years. At first, the goal was to support our servicemen and women fighting in Iraq because I hated the idea that they might be treated like the veterans who returned from Vietnam. Since then, things have
become more political, but standing behind our brave troops, law enforcement officers, firefighters and first responders won’t change. Another difference from when I started is how much more positive drivers and their passengers have become, especially over the last few years. On Saturday mornings, starting about 11 a.m., it’s a really good feeling to have
hundreds of people honk their horns, salute, offer coffee or give thumbs-ups, and I wanted to say thank you. Howard Ross Setauket Editor’s note: Saturday mornings members of the North Country Patriots gather on the corner of Route 25A and North Country Road, and the North Country Peace Group does the same across the street.

Not exactly a fairy tale evening
h, Cinderella. The glass slipper. The handsome prince. A story that even frustrated, annoyed, irritable teenagers can love, right? That’s what we thought when we bought the tickets. My wife and I enjoy good music, lyrical singing and creative costumes. So we ﬁgured we’d share some of that with our teenage children before we pack them up and ship them off to D. None the next chapter of their lives. of the above The outing BY DANIEL DUNAIEF started out with such promise. I drove my teenagers to meet my wife. We connected with her outside a garage, where she used her parking pass to get us into a building several
blocks from the show. As soon as she got in the car, she could tell the mood was dark and foreboding. “What’s the matter?” she asked. “Nothing,” Angry 1 and Angry 2 muttered in unison. “Do you not want to see the show?” No answer. “Well? Would you rather go home? Dad can take you back.” No answer. “Can I please have my ticket?” my wife asked, sticking out her hand. “I will go alone.” “No,” I replied. “I want to go, too.” Walking through a city we didn’t know well, we raced to get to the theater before 7 p.m. It wasn’t easy, but we got in by 6:58 and racewalked to the door. “You can’t come in,” the usher said. We slumped our shoulders. “But it’s not 7 p.m.,” my wife observed. “Yes, but the show doesn’t start until 7:30. We’ll open the doors in a few minutes.” Funny, right? Well, no, not in the moment.
“Wait, this starts at 7:30 p.m.?” my son asked. “How long is it?” The usher informed us it was three 45-minute acts, with two 15-minute intermissions. That meant we’d get home around 11 p.m. “I have so much homework,” he lamented. We decided I would retrace our steps back to our car so he could get his backpack, order an Uber and send him on his way. I took a ticket and ran with him to the car. Fortunately, the Uber transfer went well. As I trotted back to the theater, I realized I was missing something. I called my wife. “What’s the matter?” she asked, sensing the continuing unraveling of the evening. “I can’t ﬁnd the ticket. It must have fallen out of my pocket.” “Oh no, how are you going to get in?” We talked for a moment and then I realized we could show my wife’s two tickets to the usher with whom I spoke to on the way out. Our daughter could hover near the seats. Fortunately, the usher let me return. Once the show began with frenzied music and
considerable dancing, we waited. And waited. And waited. No one spoke. No one sang. It was, to the surprise of all three of us, a ballet. Now, I know many ﬁne people who love the ballet. Just as I know many wonderful, albeit misguided, people who love the Patriots. For the three of us, however, a ballet was not only unexpected, it was also unwelcome. By the time intermission began, we were laughing. “Should we stay for the second act?” my wife asked. We stayed for another 45 minutes and left the theater. “You know, it could have been worse,” our daughter said, as we were driving back home. “Oh yeah, how?” my wife and I wondered, incredulous. “All four of us could have seen it,” she said. We chuckled as we hit every red light on the way home from the shattered glass slipper of an evening.
my sister and brother. My two nephews are at SUNY, so we are a fan club. Q: You undoubtedly travel a lot. What do you do to keep yourself healthy and protect your voice during plane trips? A: I try to stay hydrated, get enough rest. I live moderately and believe in mind over matter. And I do the same as others, trying to avoid those who are coughing on the plane. Q: I believe you grew up in a musical family, your parents both being high school music teachers. Did you always want to sing? A: It was the furthest thing from my mind! I loved horses, thought I might be a vet, or maybe the ﬁrst lady president — which has yet to happen. I had ambition, was a very good student. I always wrote music growing up. But I never heard of a woman composer so that wasn’t an option. I majored in music ed, my parents thought that was a good idea, went on to the Eastman School and Julliard. Then I fell in love with jazz. Q: Do you get nervous when you are to perform? A: I was not a gregarious person, that wasn’t my personality. I was shy. So that was one of the skills I had to learn. Q: Do you have a favorite role or composer? A: I’m not so much into favorites. Verdi,
Strauss ... Q: Do you speak other languages? A: Yes, I speak French, German, some Italian. Q: Do you need to know those languages to sing in them? A: No, there have been great singers who have not known the language they were singing in. You do not need to know the language but it is helpful. Q: You have two daughters. How did you manage the work/life balance? A: It’s hard for a working mother. You never feel you are doing anything well. You have to manage everything. It’s challenging. Fortunately I have a tremendous amount of energy and a great work ethic. Q: Did you get that from your parents? A: (Pauses.) Yes, probably. Q: Do you ever have nightmares that you had forgotten your lines? A: Yes, those kinds of nightmares like everyone else. Q: Did that ever happen? A: No. Q: Are your dreams set to music? A: Hmm, I don’t really know. Q: What else about music? A: I’m working with the National Institutes of Health. When children are exposed to music
early, their oral comprehension is increased. Studies have shown that. A major passion of the opera superstar is the intersection of music, health and neuroscience. She is artistic adviser at the Kennedy Center and has launched a collaboration with NIH — the ﬁrst of its kind between a performing arts center and the largest supporter of biomedical research in the world. She gives presentations on her concert tours with scientists, music therapists and medical professionals. She recently co-authored an article with Dr. Francis Collins, NIH director, for the Journal of the American Medical Association. Be sure to come out for the fundraising Stony Brook University Gala Saturday night, March 2, at the Staller Center. You will not only hear fabulous music. You will see one of the 21st century’s most remarkable women.
Conversing with Renée Fleming, opera superstar
s beﬁts a woman born on St. Valentine’s Day, Renée Fleming grew up to become the sweetheart of the opera world. Possessing a powerful yet silky voice, great beauty and impressive acting skills, Fleming has moved from a single dimension to any number of new musical venues, with a major role in Broadway’s “Carousel,” singing the national anthem at the 2014 Super Bowl, and innumerable appearances on television, in movies and in concerts. The opera diva will be the star attraction at Stony Brook UniBetween versity’s Gala, the you and me major fundraiser at the Staller Center BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF March 2. I’ve long known about her spectacular professional career but thought I would like to know more about the person that she is, so I had a brief, 10-minute chat with her on the phone at a hotel in Barcelona, Spain. We were time-limited to protect her voice, which is as immediately recognizable when she speaks as when she ﬁlls the Metropolitan Opera House with glorious music. Q: You are coming to Stony Brook to perform. Do you have some special connection with SUNY? A: Yes, I went to SUNY Potsdam, and so did

Joseph J Franco, DO | Board Certified Interventional Cardiologist St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center Heart disease is leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness, St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center proudly participates in American Heart Month during February. Dr. Franco knows that outstanding patient care requires thoughtful evaluation of the whole person, because the body is greater than the sum of its parts. He pairs this integrative approach to medicine with the latest innovations in cardiovascular diagnosis and treatment.
My heart is healthy, but what can I do to reduce my risk of heart attack or death from heart problems? A. Studies show that helping others promotes positive psychological change in the brain, and is associated with happiness and well-being. These positive emotions reduce stress and boost the immune system. Research suggest that those who give support to others live longer than those who do not. In addition, there are three key things people should do to risk a heart attack or other heart problems, including: Exercise. Consistent physical activity makes the heart a more effective organ. It reduces plaque, blood pressure and stress. Moderate intensity exercise is free, easy, and safe for almost everyone. Keep in mind, the American College of Cardiology defines moderate intensity as an activity where you could hold a conversation but could not sing a song. Eat well (see below: What is the best heart healthy diet?) Know your risk of heart disease. Talk to your doctor. Ask questions. Consider a consultation with a cardiologist, if indicated. Knowing your risks can often help motivate lifestyle changes to reduce those risks.
What is the best heart healthy diet? A. I often tell patients that they already know how to eat well. It is the stuff that our mothers and grandmothers taught us. Eat in moderation. Avoid fatty or fried foods. Limit sugar. Enjoy plenty of fruits and vegetables. While “fad” diets may be helpful at jump-starting weight loss or a healthy lifestyle, keep in mind that the basics of eating well for your heart are less daunting than they may seem.
I am having chest pain. Is this a heart attack? A. Yes, almost all insurance carriers will cover your annual preventive wellness exam. In fact, most insurance carriers will cover at least one wellness or preventive exam per year. Check with your insurance provider to identify their policies regarding the wellness and preventive exam, as all policies The classic description of cardiac chest pain (angina) is a persistent pressure or tightness at the center of the chest which sometimes radiates to the jaw or left arm. It is associated with nausea, vomiting, sweats, shortness of breath, or any combination of the above. Most forms of angina are brought on by physical activity or stress. Keep in mind that many heart symptoms can be atypical, especially in women. I tell patients if you have any concern about any symptoms from your neck to your belly button, the heart must at least be considered and should be evaluated promptly.
Why should I consider Saint Catherine of Siena Medical Center for my heart problem? A. St. Catherine has earned the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval and Accreditation for Disease-Specific Care for stroke since 2012. The hospital is a designated New York State Stroke Center and has been recognized as a 2018 Get With The Guidelines® Stroke Gold Plus & Target Stroke Elite Honor Roll Award by the American Heart Association /American Stroke Association. In addition, St. Catherine has maintained Gold Plus recognition for excellence in stroke care and thrombolytic management of acute ischemic since 2010. From the expert diagnostics and initial management in the Emergency Department, to the seasoned team in the Cardiac Cath Lab, patients can be at ease, knowing that they are in good hands throughout the course of care at the hospital. Our cardiologists are regionally recognized and are leaders in the field. Finally, St. Catherine of Siena is a member of Catholic Health Services of Long Island, which means they have direct access to our partner hospitals such as St. Francis and Good Samaritan, where more complex heart procedures can be performed, if needed.
