F R E E

What’s one of the best parts of coming to the library? Meeting friends from the community and sharing in your love of books. Emma Clark Library once again joins the international initiative “Take Your Child to the Library Day,” Thursday, Feb. 23, from 1 to 3 p.m. The library will offer face painting, temporary tattoos, balloon sculpting and crafts — in addition to all the daily services and resources you can find there, such as books, audio books, computers, tablets, movies, music, toys and puzzles — all for free.

3 Village to offer free pre-K; tax cap set at 3.40 percent

By AndreA PAldy The Three Village school district announced last week that it will launch a free prekindergarten program in the fall to replace the current fee-based program housed at Nassakeag Elementary School. The school board meeting also brought up-to-date news about the tax cap and the district’s STEM program. Speaking about the new, free prekindergarten program, Jeff Carlson, the district’s assistant superintendent for business services, explained that it will remain at Nassakeag. He also said the program will be taught by Three Village teachers and only be open to district residents. For the past two years, Three Village has been partnering with SCOPE Education Services to run a preschool for 4-year-olds at Nassakeag. Under the new district-only program, there will be 200 spots for 4-year-olds in 10 classes — five in the morning and five in the afternoon. Carlson said both the morning and afternoon sessions will meet for twoand-a-half hours, five days a week. Children must be potty-trained to attend and must turn 4 by Dec. 1, 2017. If there are more applicants than spaces, students will be selected by lottery, Carlson said. The current kindergarten enrollment stands at 339. While the preschool playground and classrooms are in place, the district would still have to cover the cost of staffing the program. Carlson estimated it would cost about $450,000 in teaching salaries and benefits. However, because of declining enrollment in the elementary schools, Three Village would have had to lay off three elementary school teachers next fall. Now, though, the district will shift three teachers with early childhood education certifications over to the preschool. Two additional teachers will be hired. The deadline for application is March 31, and the lottery drawing will be held April 21.

The budget

With new numbers in from the state, Three Village has a clearer picture of its finances for the coming school year. With those figures in place, Carlson said the new

projected limit on the tax levy increase is 3.40 percent. That is up from an initial projection of 1.46 percent in January. The baseline for what is commonly referred to as the tax cap is set at 2 percent, or the consumer price index — whichever is lower. In addition, each district’s maximum allowable levy increase is calculated using a formula that includes criteria such as a district’s tax base growth factor, capital projects and bond payments, Carlson said. Three Village can expect an increase in state aid of about $247,000, based on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D) executive budget for 2018. The amount does not include building aid. Last year, the district received a $3.5 million bump because of the end of the Gap Elimination Adjustment — funds taken from school aid packages to assist the state in balancing its budget. The district will not need to cut any programs for budget reasons.

Computer science

With STEM careers growing at a rate of 17 percent — compared to 9.8 percent for other fields — according to a report from the district’s computer science faculty, Three Village students have the opportunity to stay abreast of a rapidly changing field. Stan Hanscom, a math and computer science teacher at P.J. Gelinas Junior High, said because district students are exposed to coding through the elementary STEM program, the district’s junior high computer classes offer a bridge between early exposure and offerings at the high school. Hanscom’s students learn Scratch and TI Basic for calculators, which introduce code sequencing, trouble-shooting and problem solving. In grades eight and nine, students focus on logical thinking and learn programming using Python. Ward Melville High School offers AP computer science A, an introductory, college-level course in Java programming. Next year, students will also be able to take AP computer science principles, which focuses less on programming and more on the foundations of programming, with an interdisciplinary approach, said Katelyn Kmiotek, who teaches eighth- and ninth-graders at Gelinas Junior High. She will teach the new course in the fall.

Video: Piping Plovers at West Meadow Beach

Environmental ed legally mandated at West Meadow nature preserve

By Donna newman Donna@tBrnewspapers.com

Snow and sleet notwithstanding, spring will soon be here, and it’s time to ask the question: Will environmental education programming return to West Meadow Beach in Stony Brook and Cedar Beach in MountSinai? When queried last year, Brookhaven Town spokesman Jack Krieger responded in an email, “At this time the position [environmental educator] is occupied and budgeted in the 2017 town budget.” When he wrote that, the person holding the title, Molly Hastings, had been suspended since September pending the outcome of a hearing process that has yet to be concluded nearly five months later.

The 1996 New York State legislation that decreed the removal of the cottages being used by private individuals, and returned the beach to its natural state, also contained a provision that there be an environmental educator hired to provide programming to add an informational component to the newly reclaimed preserve. The cottages were razed in 2004 and, following a multi-year civil service process to establish the position, Eileen Gerle became the first environmental educator in March 2009. Upon her retirement in October 2014, Hastings became the second to hold the position the following December. Stony Brook civic leader Herb Mones said he dedicated a decade and a half to seeing that the town complied with the legislation. “I spent 15 years of my life on this issue, to move the town to fulfill its obligation to make the public park public, fulfilling the vision of local industrialists Ward Melville and Eversley Childs,” he said. Mones said the town has done some very good things at West Meadow, remodeling the main building, adding a lifeguard station and providing new playground equipment. “If the town never did another thing, it would still be a remarkable resource,” he said. “It’s a little slice of heaven. I think there are a lot of things that are very positive. West Meadow really defines the Three Villages.” Still, he said he’d like to see refurbishment of the remaining cottages, addition of a nature trail and installation of security lighting near the Gamecock Cottage. And, of course, restoration of educational programming. When Nick Sicurelli, a 17-year-old Hauppauge High School senior, learned all the fall environmental education programs at West Meadow Beach — as well as at Cedar Beach — had been cancelled this year, he said he felt bad for all the students and scouts who had missed out. “It’s important to reach out, to inform people [about the environment], to let them know the scale of what’s going on — and the small things they can do [to improve the planet],” he said, adding he believed the cancellations were unfortunate. Sicurelli first came to West Meadow Beach to complete an environmental science merit badge with his Boy Scout Troop 343. He returned happily and often to take advantage of the opportunities to learn and do more including search for turtles and turtle eggs, help with beach cleanup, remove invasive plants and replant a beach garden for which he raised funds to purchase trees and plants. In all, 19 programs open to the public and 22 public school programs were canceled in September and October at the two sites, according to a Sept. 27 email sent from Tom Carrano, supervisor of the environmental educator, to Molly Hastings. In addition, a variety of tours, field trips, school assemblies, citizen scientist projects and volunteer opportunities were unavailable this fall. Elyas Masrour of Setauket, a student at P. J. Gelinas Junior High School, saw a film years ago that engendered in him a passion for birds. “I watched ‘The Big Year,’ a funny movie about birders who go on a trip and try to outdo each other sighting birds,” he said. “It lit a spark for me and I signed up for bird walks at West Meadow Beach.” He said he met other birders and they did a ‘Big Year’ together — right in the Three Village area — identifying more than 100 bird species. Taking the next step, Masrour started photographing birds he spotted, until he realized taking videos made it easier to capture a good shot in an individual frame. That led to wildlife filmmaking. He asked permission of Hastings to film the piping plovers at West Meadow last summer. She worked with him so he could create a five-minute documentary. Catherine Masrour, Elyas’ mother, would like to see the educational programming resume. “It’s such an important thing,” she said. “Kids don’t get outside enough as it is. There are all these opportunities at West Meadow that make it so special and wonderful. If we are going to combat climate change, we need to start locally — and with the young. We need an informed future generation.”

James Armistead served as a double spy. And is that Prince Whipple, the black crewman, in the painting of George Washington crossing the Delaware? I am not so sure because many blacks fought in the American Revolution. Freedom was not an automatic option. There have been unsung black heroes making all kinds of contributions throughout American history. The members of the 333rd Battalion, for example. The Chesapeake Marine Railway and Dry Dock Company of Baltimore, Maryland, which was one of the largest and most successful black businesses in America in the 1870s. “Dirty Little Secrets About Black History: Its Heroes & Other Troublemakers” by Claud Anderson reveals that in the late 1800s, blacks invented and filed for patents on a number of transportation-related devices. Andrew J. Beared invented an automatic train car coupler. Albert B. Blackburn invented a railway signal. R.A. Butler invented a train alarm. Although many inventors were fresh out of slavery and the literacy rate among slaves was 50 percent, black inventors filed hundreds of patents for transportation devices. The Safe Bus Company was a black-owned city-chartered bus line in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, from 1930 to the 1960s. Black history celebrates regular people engaged in positive activities. Here are some examples: My father Herman Lee resided at 34 Christian Ave., Setauket, between 1956 and 2011. He was employed at the Setauket yard of the Brookhaven Highway Department in the 1960s and promoted to foreman in the 1970s. He did carpentry/home improvement projects for Three Village homeowners; among his regular clients, the Windrows and the Strongs. In World War II he served on the USS Hornet CV-12. After he became a chaplain for the VFW along with his wife Barbara Lewis Lee who was a practical nurse and historian in her own right. They sent all of their four children to college: Barbara, Herman, Geral and Peter. Uncle Sherwood Lewis was an employee of Long Island Lighting Company (LILCO). He came up with an idea that saved the company more than $100,000 a year according to a Newsday article dated April 23, 1977. He, too, was raised on Christian Avenue and now resides in Massachusetts. Grandmother Ethel Lewis, valedictorian of her high school graduating class, resided at 32 Christian Ave. with her husband Howard Lewis. They subdivided their property so my parents could build their house on Christian Avenue. Aunt Hazel Lewis, salutatorian of her graduating class, was employed at Peck & Peck in New York City back in the day — a high-end boutique clothing store for women. Aunt Pearl Lewis Hart received an associates degree in accounting in her 40s, was promoted to supervisor of the payroll department at SUNY Stony Brook and, until

her death last month at age 92, was living in her own home on Christian Avenue. Uncle Harry Hart, Pearl’s husband, owned his own excavation and contracting business from the 1940s to the 1980s. He acquired land on Christian Avenue and rented to many local folks. Remembering a few of Dr. King’s principles of nonviolence can help provide the foundation for a healthy society: “Nonviolence is a way of life for brave people; attack problems, not people; know and do what is right even when it is difficult.” I know there are many individuals who believe in these principles. Black History Month means different things to different people, but if it can fill in the gaps, identify injustice, encourage positive dialogue and provide a platform for people to work toward understanding one another, it is a valuable ongoing process. Geral Lee returned to her Setauket home in 2013 to be with her father after living in Rhode Island for 12 years. She taught physical education and health in Hempstead early in her career and received a personal invitation from her primary school coach Jack Foley, who later became athletic director for Three Village schools, to teach at Ward Melville. She served in the Peace Corps in Senegal, loves dogs and cats and currently relieves stress as a reflexologist.

Town tree advisory committees: additional information Created by Town of Brookhaven, but not yet sitting By Donna newman Donna@tBrnewspapers.com A disagreement last year between residents of the M-section of the Strathmore housing development in Stony Brook and Town of Brookhaven Highway Department Superintendent Dan Losquadro (R) regarding the necessity of removing area street trees to provide proper road resurfacing, resulted in an extended discussion of trees — and whether they should be removed or not. That discussion brought into focus a need for checks and balances, said Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (D-Port Jefferson Station). The councilwoman said prior to this public discussion the highway department acted independently, without town board or environmental input. Cartright worked with Supervisor Ed Romaine (R) and Town Attorney Annette Eaderesto to find a solution that would prevent a recurrence of the M-section situation. Listening to input from community members, representatives of the highway department, environmental activists and civic groups, the town board passed a resolution at its Dec. 15 meeting authorizing a tree advisory committee to establish guidelines for the Town of Brookhaven. Two different committees would be

formed depending on if the land was owned by the town or was located in the town’s rights-of-way. The resolution stipulated that, when a project is within the town’s rights-of-way, the makeup of the committee shall be: (1) a representative from the town’s division of land management, appointed by the town attorney; (2) a representative of the town highway department, appointed by its superintendent; (3) a licensed professional engineer from the highway department’s engineering division; and (4) a Suffolk County Civil Service titled horticultural worker from the town’s ecology center. When a project is on town park lands, or any other town-owned lands, the committee shall consist of: (1) a representative from the town’s division of land management, appointed by the town attorney; (2) a representative of the supervisor’s office, appointed by the supervisor; (3) a representative of the parks department, appointed by its commissioner; and (4) a representative of the department of planning and environment, appointed by its commissioner. The resolution passed unanimously. An interview with Cartright recently clarified additional information about the committees. There will be standing committees, she said, as opposed to being as-

Patriots drop chance to share league title By Desirée Keegan Desiree@tbrnewspapers.com A commonly used cliché in sports is that teams always have to “take one game at a time.” The Patriots head coach Bruce Haller said he thought his team was too focused on senior day ceremonies and the postseason, causing the girls to lose sight of their Feb. 11 League I matchup against Brentwood. If Ward Melville had won, the Patriots would be sharing a piece of the League I title, would have a higher seed and earn a second-round home playoff game. The 38-33 loss changed everything. “It shows you that we are certainly not so good that we can just show up and win a game,” he said. “They have to come and be ready to play. We dug ourselves a deep hole, we came back, and the kids deserve a lot of credit for that, but I think it took so much energy to come back that we just didn’t have a lot left at the end of the game.” Ward Melville fell behind 15-3 by the

end of the first quarter, with all the Patriots points coming off of free throws. By halftime, senior Taylor Tripptree, junior Shannon Brazier and sophomore Lauren Hansen helped close the deficit just slightly, to 2313. Hansen led in scoring with five points. “We started off very slow,” Tripptree said. “We’re so used to playing after school and we have a different routine, so it brought us down. We had a kind of off practice last night and we tried not to let that show today, but they also came out hard, and we weren’t expecting it.” The team turned it around in the third, with senior Hannah Lorenzen scoring the opening points on a 3-pointer, and after Brentwood countered with a 3-point shot of its own, Ward Melville went on a 10-0 tear to tie the game. Hansen added a field goal before swishing back-to-back treys, and Brazier scored off a feed from Tripptree to make it 26-26. “[Coming back] shows that they have the potential and they’re capable of doing it, but they can’t turn it on and off,” Haller said. “They can’t decide to just struggle a little bit or miss a couple of shots and get down on themselves for missing their shots and all of the sudden turn it on later in the game.” Triptree scored the opening point of the fourth quarter with a free throw at the 6:57 mark that gave the Patriots their first lead of the game, but a Brentwood bucket tied the game again, 29-29. “We know not to give up,” Tripptree said. “We have to give 100 percent effort all the time. We are hard workers.” The two teams were knotted at 31 with less than five minutes left. Ward Melville fell behind 36-31, but two Lorenzen free throws put the Patriots within a single possession. Known for her 3-point skills, Hansen attempted a shot with less than 30 seconds left, but just missed. The Patriots fouled on several straight Brentwood inbounds passes in an attempt to intercept each pass, but Brentwood was able to put the game away. “I give Brentwood a lot of credit, they’re

a playoff team,” Haller said. “They’re a very, very good team and we took them lightly. This was all on us.” Despite the loss, the head coach said he thinks his team can go far. “They’re great kids, they’re very good basketball players and I have confidence that they have the ability to make a deep run in the playoffs,” he said. “But if they come the way they came to play today, they’ll be one and done in the playoffs.” Tripptree said she also has confidence in her team’s ability to turn it around. “We know we can’t let this bring us down,” she said. “Even if we have a bad practice, we know now we can’t let this bring us down or have it affect our game. We have to bring it — come hard every game — and we know we can pick it back up and put ourselves back in the game no matter how deep the hole is. We have to keep our heads up and expect anything in the playoffs.”

OpiniOn Editorial

Letters to the editor Thank you Three Village retirees who keep on giving I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Three Village Retirees Organization for their yearly, generous contribution to our needy families during the holiday season. Three Village Retirees raised more than $3,000 this year that was evenly distributed among the seven schools in the form of gift cards. The school social workers in each building add those cards to the contributions they receive from staff members and provide

The Israel G. Hawkins House on 25A in Stony Brook will be refurbished and expanded as part of the Stony Brook Square center.

B’haven Planning Board gives discussion a chance We are pleased that the Town of Brookhaven Planning Board decided to “hold open” its hearing Feb. 6 on the application for Stony Brook Square LLC — a shopping center to be built on the former Gustafson nursery property on Route 25A in Stony Brook. Planning Board Chairman Vincent Pascale, while praising the shopping center application as a “very good one … well thought out,” asked the board to vote to grant a one-month continuance to give community representatives an opportunity to meet with developer and Stony Brook resident Parvis Farazhad one last time to discuss and iron out a few additional considerations. Route 25A corridor visioning meetings are currently bringing residents of Stony Brook (Feb. 4) and Setauket (Feb. 25) together to discuss planning for future land use for this heavily trafficked artery. BFJ Planning, a consultant hired by the town, is gathering information from area residents they will consolidate into a land use plan. The review of the shopping center site plan is taking place contemporaneously with this visioning process. At the Feb. 6 session planning board members heard speakers from several local civic associations and two nearby schools (Stony Brook University and the Stony Brook School). The nature of the comments seemed to indicate that a meeting might prove beneficial. Kudos to Chairman Pascale for the Solomon-like determination that employing a spirit of collegiality and compromise will ultimately result in a construction project that Three Villagers can support.

families with holiday gifts. Most people in the community don’t realize that the Three Village area has a growing population of families in need. This year we assisted more than 100 families at the holidays and continue to support them throughout the year via district food pantries and donations coordinated by school social workers. The help we received from the Three Village Retirees was

such a blessing! It would have been extremely difficult to care for our families without them! Although these men and women have retired from their professional service to the district, they continue to provide support to our community at large! Thank you Three Village Retirees. We so appreciate your time, thoughtfulness and commitment.

‘Unrestrained advocates of unfettered free speech’ How laughable to be lectured by those on the left with regard to tolerance and free speech, when it is demonstrably true those on their side of the aisle are the worst offenders of all. In a recent letter to the editor [The Village Times Hearld, Letters, Feb. 2], as part of her attack on President Trump, Shoshana Hershkowitz lamented “our principles are violated when the means for our citizens to speak out, such as the White House Comments Line, are cut off.” I suggest that Ms. Hershkowitz discuss this catastrophe with former President Barack Obama, under whose administration this termination occurred, several weeks before the recent inauguration. Then we have a companion letter from Bob Arrigon [The Village Times Herald, Letters, Feb. 2], who read George Orwell’s novel “1984,” and believes President Trump is a modern-day incarnation of Big Brother, and is creating a “society where freedom

of speech and thought are suppressed under a totalitarian regime.” Mr. Arrigon proceeds to decry Kellyanne Conway’s use of the term “alternative facts,” and then, in his next paragraph, describes Dan Rather as a “distinguished journalist.” Those of us who prefer history books to novels may recall the end of this distinguished journalist’s career: he was canned by CBS for using forged documents to maliciously smear the career of President Bush. I think the record shows President Trump and his administration are unrestrained advocates of unfettered free speech, and have taken no steps whatever to prevent the dissemination of opinions with which they may not agree, of which there is no shortage. On the contrary, if one would like to see a virtually complete lack of tolerance for opinions of others, and an almost unmitigated disdain for principles of free speech, one need look no further than our institu-

tions of higher learning, largely dominated by administrations, faculties and student bodies of leftist persuasions. Conservative guest speakers are routinely shut down by vicious student riots. Two of the most flagrant took place recently on the campuses of UC Berkeley and NYU. Many universities employ thought police, who dictate the most minute details of spoken and written discourse, for the purpose of curtailing “microaggressions” or other perceived transgressions. Anyone who dares to question sacred dogma, such as global warming, or climate change, or whatever term happens to be in vogue at the moment, is severely chastised and likely to suffer severe consequences for his or her failure to toe the party line. Fortunately, President Trump appears to be undeterred by criticism. He has a lot of work to do.

Open letter to Supt.: Molding young minds in 3V schools Although the recent presidential election was a contentious one, the peaceful transition of power from one president to another is history in the making and one of the many things that makes America exceptional. Anyone who watched President Trump being sworn in on Jan. 20 would have seen past Presidents Carter, Clinton, Bush and Obama; former Vice Presidents Quayle, Cheney and Biden; and the leaders of both political parties there on the platform to witness and show respect for our cherished tradition of peaceful transition of power, reminding us all this was a historic event, not a partisan political event. Following my recent letter [The Village Times Herald, Letters, Jan. 19] about the history of presidential inaugurations, I was contacted by several parents in

the district concerned about how the election and inauguration were treated in our schools. They said they were afraid of retribution toward their children if they raised what they perceived as political bias within the district. Not having children in our schools, I agreed to give voice to their concerns. The parents told me there were mock elections one week before the presidential election at Murphy and Gelinas Junior High schools. Although students eagerly participated and were anxious to know the results of the vote, the results were not announced until several weeks after the inauguration. Many students speculated this was because Trump won. The parents also told me students were required to watch the inauguration of President

Obama eight years ago, and that a mandatory assembly was planned for the inauguration of President Trump as well. One week later, the assembly was changed to “optional.” Several students who wanted to attend the optional Trump inauguration viewing were told by teachers they were expected to be in class and should not attend the “optional” assembly. It is often said “sunlight is the best disinfectant.” On behalf of the parents and taxpaying citizens of the Three Village district, I’d appreciate your shedding light on the concerns expressed by these parents, especially their fear of retribution toward their children if they raise concerns about what they perceive to be political bias in our district’s schools.

OpiniOn The funny side of getting older

I

was watching television late at night, after my wife drifted off to sleep, when I first saw him. I don’t tend to stop channel surfing when a comedian appears. He looked like a friend of mine, he had a devilish smile and he wasn’t shouting or barking obscenities at me. He was balding and overweight and was the definition of unglamorous. He was talking as if I was in the room with him and he was sharing observations with me. I’m going to paraphrase one By Daniel Dunaief of the first jokes I heard. “Getting old sucks,” he began. “You know, when you’re in your 20s and you come in and tell the

D. None of the above

doctor your shoulder is bothering you, you have, like a hundred options. The doctor can take a piece of your hip and put it in your shoulder, he can make you a new shoulder, and he can fix you right up so you’re good as new.” The audience nodded appreciatively. “But, then, you get older and you go to the same doctor with the same complaint and you wait. The doctor smiles at you and listens to your symptoms but, then, he doesn’t offer any heroic solutions. He gives you that understanding look.” “So, what can we do about this?” you say. “Well, you can take some Advil if you want,” he says with a shrug. “But what about all those other options?” you ask. “What about moving around body parts, building a new shoulder and fixing me up so I’m better than I was?” “Those are no longer possible,” he says, as he shakes his head slowly. Getting old is difficult. I know doctors and lifestyle coaches and

entire industries are dedicated to reversing the effects of aging. Lines on your face? Hey, no problem, there’s a cure for that. Putting on weight as you age? Sure, we can fix you right up, send you food, cook food for you, or convince you through hypnosis that you, in fact, don’t need food. If a character Tom Hanks played in “Cast Away” could survive for several years on an island by himself with just a volleyball for his friend and a few fish and coconuts here and there, you can most certainly get through a day without coffee, doughnuts or any of the other bare necessities that call to you from the addicted parts of your bodies. When our kids were small, we used to pack the back of the car with everything we might need. Pack ‘N Play? Check. Stroller? Check. Diaper bag? Got it. As they got older, we didn’t have much to bring and just told them to get in the car and buckle themselves in.

Somewhere along the lines, though, as our kids needed less to go from point A to point B, we wanted more. Our conversations before we leave the house go something like this. “I can’t find my vitamins,” my wife says. “Did I take one this morning?” “I don’t know, but do you know where my reading glasses are?” I ask. “No, but when you start looking for your distance glasses, they’re on your forehead,” she smiles, pointing at me. “Oh, good, thanks. Have you seen my Invisalign braces?” I ask. “I’m not sure if the ones in the kitchen are your new ones or your old ones, but there’s a set on the counter,” she offers. As I scoop up my plastic braces, I see something familiar next to them. “Hey, honey?” I shout. “Your vitamins are on the kitchen table.” Getting old may be challenging but it can also be comical. Just ask comedian Louis C.K.

Women putting retirement on hold for jollies and more

T

he headline spoke to me: “More Women in Their 60s and 70s Are Having ‘Way Too Much Fun’ to Retire.” After reading the article, which didn’t disappoint, by Claire Cain Miller in last Sunday’s New York Times, even though I’ve been at odds lately with The Times, I think there is more to the story than fun. Two recent analyses indicate that “women have become By Leah S. Dunaief significantly more likely to work into their 60s and even 70s, often full time” and “many of these women report that they do it because they enjoy it,” according to the article. For those 65-69 years of age,-the

Between you and me

numbers have almost doubled since the late 1980s from 15 percent to nearly 30 percent. Perhaps more surprising is the leap in percentage terms for those 70-74 years of age, more than doubling from 8 to 18 percent. Who are these women? Those working are more likely to be higher educated and to have savings, studies have shown, while those not working more commonly are in poor health and have low savings, depending on Social Security and perhaps disability. But for their health problems, they too might be among those working. Why, if they don’t strictly need the money, are the women of “a certain age” still working? I can offer some of the answers from my own life. Working, full or part time, is more than just “fun,” although there is nothing wrong with enjoying one’s work. A job can offer a purpose to those who are now empty nesters or perhaps without spouses. There is satisfaction in having one’s

daily accomplishments measured in some way, whether with salary or by problems solved. Presumably holding a job offers something of value to community and society. There is also the social aspect of interacting with others and working as a team. Social ties are linked to longer life spans. In addition, working, unless at a job that is exactly the same each day and could be done by a robot, requires thinking and planning, which in turn helps exercise the brain. And the structure that reporting for work imposes in the course of a week might be welcomed by many. Sometimes working might be a way to preserve a marriage. In a household where the husband might have been the sole breadwinner but is now retired, the spouses might not be completely comfortable with that new arrangement. Work is a respected reason to be apart some of each day. There might also be a sort of prestige in still working. When people are retired, they may be

asked, “What did you do?” as if life has now passed them by. That’s opposed to “What kind of work do you do?” Having a job might convey greater importance. If the work one does is inherently engaging and one learns from it and meets interesting people, there might be the motivation to keep one’s hand in and stay abreast of new developments and changes in the field. And no matter how much savings one might reasonably have, drawing down dollars in retirement can be scary. The urge is to stay in place financially and not to drop down. Bringing a stream of income into one’s life can offset that fear. Finally, for many there is the absolute necessity to earn money in order to survive. They may wish to retire but feel they are unable to afford that luxury. Whatever the reasons, society benefits from the continuing efforts of experienced workers. It goes without saying that our newspapers treasure older workers alongside our young.
