Preserving Plum Island

We look for certain “weak points” that can cause your diamond to pop out of your ring

The head of your ring is your diamond’s security system. If it weakens, or wears away...if your prongs become brittle, or snap off...you can lose your diamond. And it happens in an instant. One moment, your diamond is in your ring. The next, it’s gone. So why not let us take a close look at your ring? It’s free. And it could very well save you the cost and heartbreak of having to replace a diamond that you cherish.

Campus cops connect with students over coffee By Kevin Redding kevin@tbrnewspapers.com Instead of handing out tickets, officers at Stony Brook University were handing out free food. Stony Brook University police officers and students mingled over pastries and coffee on campus Oct. 4 as part of a nationwide effort to better connect officers with the citizens they serve. Half-a-dozen members of the university’s police department spoke with passing students as well as faculty outside the Student Activities Center on a number of topics, from current events to police training to food, during the college’s second Coffee with a Cop, an initiative that began in 2011 in Hawthorne, California, and was adopted

by local districts last year. “This is a great way for students to get to know a police officer as an individual,” Eric Olsen, assistant chief of police at Stony Brook University said. “The media largely groups cops as one thing and it sort of dehumanizes them. We think this is a great concept.” Jared King, a former patrol officer who regularly pulled over people and made arrests, said he was excited to show off a more down-to-earth side to the police force as part of the community relations team. “Nobody really knows the nice side of police work, which is interacting positively with people during the day, walking the beat, meeting and talking with people,” King said. “Here, we get to meet everyone during the day and talk about what’s going on on campus, address their questions, whatever they bring to the table.” Jhinelle Walker, an anthropology major in her second year, made the rounds to each officer and asked several questions, even asking about their uniform colors. She commended the event for “bridging a gap.” “I think this is a wonderful idea because often there’s a miscommunication that comes between people in the community and police officers,” Walker said. “We have to understand they’re regular people with lives. Here, students get to know who they are, what they do and can clear up misconceptions.” A mechanical engineering major, Sagardeep Singh, said, “It’s good to get to know the

They’re just trying to do their job and want to get familiarized with us students.” Patrick Bazemore, another officer, fielded questions about recent national events and how he became an officer. “I love dealing with people,” Bazemore said. “Everything is about communication and interaction. That’s how you move forward in life.” This event is far from the department’s only outreach to the campus community,

Olsen said. Officers regularly take part in a game night with the students and hold a one-credit citizen’s police academy, a course designed to provide insight into the daily functions and responsibilities of law enforcement personnel. “It’s great to know how the students think of our cops,” Olsen said. “We always need to get input from people to know if we need to improve or change. And it’s a pleasure to do this style of policing.”

The fourth annual Brookhaven Highway Safety Day drew hundreds of residents Sept. 23. Attendees enjoyed safety demonstrations from participating law enforcement and emergency service experts, and several dozen car seats were inspected for safety. More than 100 children also participated in a bicycle rodeo through Safety Town, the town’s miniature replica of a village. “It is very gratifying to see the extraordinary response from Brookhaven residents who attended Highway Safety Day,” Highway Superintendent Daniel Losquadro (R) said. “More than 100 children received hands-on bicycle safety instruction after their helmets and bicycles were inspected. And, in conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s National Seat

Check Saturday, our certified technicians inspected and fitted more than 30 car seats.” Hosted by the highway department’s division of traffic safety, Brookhaven Highway Safety Day is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration with a grant from the New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee. This year’s participating organizations included the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office, Police Department and Fire, Rescue and Emergency Services; Long Island Rail Road; and Long Island ABATE. The Brookhaven Highway Department holds monthly car seat inspections and various traffic safety-related events and classes at Safety Town throughout the year.

The potential development of the Gyrodyne property in St. James, left, and the suggestion of using a currently closed road, above, on the property to avoid congestion on Route 25A and direct drivers to Stony Brook Road, below, has some Brookhaven residents concerned over the compounding of traffic issues.

and works from home as a business consultant, said another issue is that the property borders 25A, which is a historic corridor, and she is concerned its value as such will be jeopardized. She said the goal of the coalition is not to impede development but to demand a better master plan when it comes to properties such as Gyrodyne’s and the areas that surround it. “If we are going to develop it, and it’s certainly the right of that landowner to do that, let’s do it smartly,” she said. “Let’s do it with sustainability, and let’s do it with community input and let the other local officials from the Town of Brookhaven understand what’s going on and let them have a say in it, too. Because it’s going to affect the Town of Brookhaven, even though it’s in the township of Smithtown.” Romaine said he is also concerned with added traffic on Route 25A, pointing to the intersection of the state thoroughfare with Stony Brook Road where bends in the road cause limited sight issues. He said both are beyond their capacity. “In my view we have too much traffic and congestion now, and I want to make sure we don’t have any additional,” Romaine said. George Hoffman, co-chair of the Citizens Advisory Committee for Route 25A,

which conducted visioning meetings for residents in the Three Village area earlier this year, was also in attendance at the Oct. 4 meeting. He echoed Smith’s sentiments that there should have been more input from the community. He said he hopes Smith is successful in getting others involved in the coalition. “Maybe this is the issue that gets us all at the same table to start working in a uniformed way where we start to talk,” Hoffman said. “I really think we need that.” Romaine also sent a letter Sept. 20 to Smithtown Planning Board Chairman Conrad Chayes expressing his concerns and recommendations. He said while the county did not require a traffic study and only recommended one, he has faith that Smithtown will mandate it. When it comes to developments such as Gyrodyne, the supervisor said he is willing to work with the state, county and other towns. “To think that people can blindly put traffic out on Stony Brook Road without us putting up a fight, they are going to be sadly mistaken,” he said. “Brookhaven is definitely going to fight this.” Requests for comments from representatives of Gyrodyne were not returned by press time.

Incidents and arrests Oct. 3–9 Camp out

A 33-year-old woman and six men ages 33 to 44 were sleeping in tents in the woods behind the Comsewogue Public Library on Terryville Road in Port Jefferson Station at about 9 a.m. Oct. 4 without permission from the owner of the property, according to police. Several of the people were considered undomiciled by the police department. The woman and two of the men were listed as residents of Port Jefferson Station, police said. All seven were arrested and charged with third-degree criminal trespassing.

Door dinged

The door handle of a 2004 Pontiac was damaged while the car was parked in the driveway of a home on Lubber Street in Stony Brook Oct. 6 at about 10:30 p.m., according to police.

Key witnesses

The driver’s side rear door and both doors on the passenger side of a 2009 Mercedes were scratched while it was parked in the side driveway of a home on Viceroy Place in Terryville at about 8 a.m. Oct. 7, according to police.

Breaking down barriers

At about 10:30 p.m. Oct. 7 multiple portions of PVC fencing were damaged and fell to the ground at a home on Parkside Avenue in Miller Place, according to police. About 10 minutes later, a similar incident was reported at a home on Oakland Avenue in Miller Place, police said.

Ticket to ride

A 61-year-old man from Port Jefferson Station was operating a 2000 Dodge while in the parking lot of the Giunta’s Meat Farms shopping center on Route 112 in Port Jefferson Station at about 7:30 p.m. Oct. 6, knowingly driving the vehicle with a suspended or revoked license, according to police.

Father walks 125 miles for those with Type 1 diabetes By Rita J. Egan rita@tbrnewspapers.com Walking is more than a form of exercise for one South Setauket father; it’s one step closer toward his mission to raise awareness of Type 1 diabetes as well as raise funds to find a cure. Michael Ehrlich will begin a 125-mile walk Oct. 16 from Times Square in Manhattan, where he works, to Montauk. His hope is to raise $25,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The 46-year-old took on the mission after his daughter Rachael, 13, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, also called juvenile diabetes, last year. It was during a trip to Hershey Park in Pennsylvania when the R.C. Murphy Junior High School, Stony Brook, student became ill and fainted in a hotel lobby. When the family returned home, Ehrlich’s wife, Leanne, took Rachael to a doctor who diagnosed her with the life-threatening condition. Ehrlich said the walk will take him approximately two to three days. It’s an adventure he will undertake with sporadic 20-minute rest periods and without replenishing his supplies. He will carry a hydration pack that holds the equivalent of five bottles of water and bring with him a head lamp, extra socks, a windbreaker, carb-heavy protein bars and sweets. Ehrlich will also be equipped with a GoPro camera to record his journey. Rachael and her mother support his efforts and the preparation, which has included overnight walks, involved for the trip. “I’m really proud of him, because I see first of all the commitment to do it and train and walk overnight,” his wife said. “Sometimes, he would get home at 10 a.m. and get into bed because of walking all night.” He has been preparing for Oct. 16 by increasing the miles he walks with each trip. The last few weeks, Ehrlich has been walking approximately 40 miles or more once a week. He has traveled on foot from his home to Wildwood State Park in Wading River, and after one of his daughter’s soccer games, from East Meadow to South Setauket. He has also walked from Rocky Point to West Hampton along the Paumanok Path, and one day after work, he walked to Floral Park in Queens.

Ehrlich said he has always enjoyed camping and hiking. His 86-year-old father, Richie, still walks a few miles a day. “It must be in my genes,” Ehrlich said. The idea came to him one day while sitting on the train from Manhattan. Ehrlich said he knew he wanted to raise money for finding a cure for juvenile diabetes and realized it needed to be a fundraiser that would be original to capture people’s attention. He saw the Manhattan skyline and that’s where it hit him to walk from the city to the end of Long Island. He has done more than walking to prepare for his campaign. After initial trips where his feet would hurt, Ehrlich began researching the proper way to walk. He discovered chi walking, which has helped reduce his foot pain. He planned out his trip with Google Maps for the best possible route. Ehrlich said walking along the South Shore seems to be the best way because the roads are less hilly and winding. He will travel from Manhattan to Long Island by crossing over the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge. He is looking forward to seeing the diverse neighborhoods of Queens before walking through the South Shore’s villages. Ehrlich has set up the Facebook page, Manhattan2Montauk, that currently has more than 100 followers to promote his walk. He is already at $15,000 toward his $25,000 fundraising goal. He said many believe that Type 1 diabetes is the result of a child not eating well or the parents feeding them sugary food, which is not true. He said the disease is genetic; however, researchers are not certain what triggers it in some individuals and not others. “A lot of people confuse Type 1 and Type 2, and they are actually completely different,” Ehrlich said. “They shouldn’t even be called the same thing.” He also wants others to know the obstacles those suffering from diabetes go through. The Ehrlich family is waiting for their health care insurance to approve an insulin pump that will be beneficial for their daughter. Ehrlich said his daughter regularly asks him if they received approval yet. As a father, he hopes his fundraiser will give her hope that one day a cure will be found and she won’t have to worry about things such as an insurance com-

pany’s approval for a medical device. “They’re close to finding a cure,” Ehrlich said. “It’s going to happen in the next 10 or 15 years. Maybe the money we raise will help find a cure.” Jason Rice, director of development with JDRF, said representatives from the foundation will join Ehrlich for the first few miles and the organization fully supports him. Rice said while others have walked a few miles to

raise money, this is the longest walk he remembers being done. “This is truly a special event to take on this walk across Long Island,” Rice said. Updates on his journey will be posted on the Manhattan2Montauk Facebook page. Ehrlich said he encourages others to join him for the first few miles of his Oct. 16 walk, which will begin at 9 a.m. at 3 Times Square in Manhattan.

County Red-light camera investigation By Desirée Keegan Desiree@tbrnewspapers.com At the General Legislature meeting Oct. 3, the Suffolk County Legislature approved Introductory Resolution 1780, sponsored by Legislator Sarah Anker (D-Mount Sinai), directing the Department of Public Works to conduct a review of the Red Light Safety Program. The evaluation of the program will be done by an independent third-party consultant, who will identify

the intersections with red-light cameras that have had increases in accidents and determine the cause of these accidents, evaluate the efficacy of the camera program and will include recommendations about whether the cameras should be retained at these intersections. The evaluation of the program will include consideration of the benefits and drawbacks to public safety given the number, type and severity of the accidents and will include all accidents involving cars, pedestrians and bicyclists at red-light camera intersections.

suffolk County alcohol and substance abuse providers, like smithtown-based assistance resource services, above, will be mandated access to naloxone.

Legislature passes law to ensure access to Narcan By Desirée Keegan Desiree@tbrnewspapers.com

153849

The Suffolk County Legislature passed into local law that access to naloxone be mandated at all substance abuse and mental health providers. Unanimously passed Oct. 3, Introductory Resolution 1679, sponsored by Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker (D-Mount Siani), will make Suffolk County grants, contracts and funding to mental health and substance abuse service providers contingent on the availability of naloxone on premises at all times and having staff trained in the administration of naloxone on-site during business hours. Naloxone, known more widely by the brand name Narcan, is a medication that reverses an overdose. “This vital legislation will help save lives and provide a second chance to those struggling with addiction,” Anker said. “I will continue to support treatment options and rehabilitation assistance to those suffering from addiction, and I greatly appreciate the many agencies the county contracts with that will have naloxone on hand to provide this life-saving treatment if needed.” The new law will affect 38 mental health and substance abuse service providers in Suffolk County, including 18 New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services providers and 20 New York State Office of Mental Health providers. Some of these organizations include John T. Mather Memorial Hospital in Port Jefferson; Concern for Independent Living Inc. in Selden; IMPACT Counseling Services in Lake Grove; Employee Assistance Resource Services in Smithtown; Catholic Charities in Commack; Kenneth Peters Center for Recovery in Hauppauge; and the Huntington Youth Bureau. The Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services currently requires all certified providers to have on-site staff trained in the administration of naloxone. Tracey Farrell, founder of North Shore Drug Awareness, who lost her son Kevin to a heroin overdose, believes the local law is a good step toward helping the addiction crisis and loss of lives. She said she’s found that more often than not, especially with providers who are dispensing Suboxone, a controlled substance at high risk for dependence that treats pain and addiction to pain relievers,individuals are obtaining prescriptions with the intent of selling. “I personally feel that this life-saving medication needs to be in the hands of everyone who may be in contact with someone with a substance use disorder,” Farrell said. “Anyone dealing with this population should have Narcan on them at all times. Kudos to Suffolk County for making sure it’s in more hands.”

STATE

Civic hosts debate on constitutional proposal By Donna newman As amended in 1846, the New York State Constitution includes a mandatory requirement that every 20 years state voters be offered the opportunity via a ballot proposal to convene a constitutional convention — called “Con Con” by those familiar with state politics — to review and revise the existing document. If a majority votes “yes,” delegates are elected to serve at a convention held in Albany. A recent meeting of the Three Village Civic Association was devoted to informing the public about the proposal to be presented to New York State voters on Election Day with the debate titled “Shall there be a convention to revise the constitution and amend the same?” Two guest speakers were invited to present opposing views of Proposal 1, the first of three proposals that will appear on the reverse side of the ballot listing the candidates for office Nov. 7. The civic association’s Vice President George Hoffman moderated the debate at the Emma S. Clark Memorial Library in Setauket. The ballot question was last posed in 1997, when a majority of those voting said

Anthony Figliola, vice president of Empire Government Strategies of Uniondale, a governmental consulting firm representing a variety of clients seeking liaisons in Albany, New York City or local municipalities, recommended a No vote. Figliola’s primary argument is that a constitutional convention is an extremely expensive and risky way to affect change, especially when the document itself provides an alternative. “The referendum process has been more successful as compared to Con Con,” he said. “There have been 600 amendments passed by the voters in our history. This year there will be a question on the ballot as to whether pensions should be taken away from any state legislator convicted of a felony. In 2013 there were six constitutional amendments proposed. Five of them were approved. The good government groups are coming from a good place. They are [working] to enact change and they are trying to move the legislature and get the public at large involved in the process.” He also spoke about the last Con Con, held in 1967, calling it “an utter failure.”

Debate Continued from page A10 “Of the delegates elected 80 percent were politically connected,” he said. “And 45 percent were either sitting [or retired] elected officials ... collecting — or in the pension system. This allowed them to take two salaries, as there is no prohibition against it in the constitution. In addition to doubling their income, pension credits accrued by doing this raised their pension payouts.” In the end, all of the proposed amendments to the constitution were submitted for voter approval in one package — which the voters rejected. Al Benninghoff is a campaign manager for the Committee for a Constitutional Convention and also with New York People’s Convention. A longtime political strategist and reform advocate, he recommended a Yes vote. Benninghoff’s case can be summed up in two words: It’s time. The last time a Con Con question was proposed to voters in 1997, the New York City Bar Association called for a “no” vote and suggested: “Let’s give the legislature a chance to reform itself. We gave it 20 years and nothing has happened,” he said. “Frankly, enough is enough,” Benninghoff said. “The legislature holds all the power. If the legislature doesn’t want to find it within itself to give us the opportunity to vote on an amendment to the constitution, then they can absolutely withhold it. And they have done that a lot.” He went on to list things he believes should have already been addressed. “There have been no ethics reforms; in-

dependent redistricting in name only, not in actuality; no term limits; and no campaign finance reform,” he said. “There’s still a tremendous loophole with LLCs [limited liability companies]. If a person running for state legislative office wants to take campaign donations from an infinite number of LLCs created by one person, or one company, they can do so. That’s a campaign finance loophole big enough to drive a truck through. What it does is empower the political status quo. It takes all the power away from the people — and that is exactly what a New York State Constitutional Convention changes.” In New York State history there have been nine constitutional conventions. The longest gap between conventions has been since the last one in 1967. It’s been 50 years. The last one did not produce any changes, arguably because all the proposals were lumped together in a single vote. As moderator of this informational session and the Q&A period that followed it, Hoffman remained clearly impartial. But in supplying additional data after the event he said he formed an opinion. “I take the question to hold a constitutional convention very seriously and I am leaning to supporting it,” Hoffman said. “I see it as a solemn responsibility to periodically review our state constitution. I think it’s clear to most that many things need to change in Albany and a constitutional convention might be the only way to bring that change. I would seriously consider running for delegate if the constitutional convention is approved.” For more information on the New York State Constitutional Convention, visit www.rockinst.org/nys_concon2017.

Clockwise from left, Peyton Capizzi rushes with the football; nick Messina runs around a defender; Christian O’Toole gains yards during a run; and nick Troy protects the football as he races into the end zone for a two-point conversion.

Messina scores three TDs in Patriots homecoming win By Desirée Keegan Desiree@tbrnewspapers.com Running back Nick Messina may stand out to the crowd, but his heroics on the football field are no longer a surprise to his teammates. The Ward Melville football star’s Oct. 7 showing was more of the same, as the senior scored three touchdowns and accounted for 233 yards in a 32-0 homecoming blanking of Sachem East in front of nearly 1,000 fans. “Messina played unbelievably, as expected,” junior Nick Troy said of his teammate, who also plays cornerback. “He is such an explosive player on both sides of the ball.”

Ward Melville 32 Sachem East 0

Messina didn’t waste any time getting the Patriots on the board. He returned the opening kickoff 93 yards for a score, setting the tone early for the blowout victory. “It really gave us the momentum right out of the gate and took Sachem off-guard,” Messina said. “There’s nothing better than scoring the opening kickoff. My coach saw that they didn’t have anybody on the outside and he trusted the line to do their jobs, and all I had to do was follow my blocks.” The Patriots scored on the opening drive of the second quarter, when senior quarterback Peyton Capizzi found junior wide receiver Marcus Velez for a 20-yard touchdown pass to give Ward Melville a 12-0 lead. The 6-foot, 4-inch Velez was a matchup nightmare for Sachem East, gaining 89 yards on seven catches. Messina made it 18-0 on a 40-yard dash into the end zone with 4:16 left in the first half. The extra-point kick attempt on the first touchdown was missed, as well as two sepatate 2-point conversion tries. One of the biggest plays of the game came when senior lineman Stephen Torrico threw a great block to spring Messina for a 21-yard gain on a fourth-and-4 from Ward Melville’s 45-yard line. “Personally, my favorite highlight was when Stephen Torrico laid a huge hit on one of their backs,” Messina said. “We spent a lot of time recognizing all of their different formations on offense and it really paid off because they rarely caught us with any surprises.” Three plays later, he scampered into the end zone on a 2-yard run. Messina ended the day with 140 yards rushing on 17 carries. “It was everything we could’ve hoped for as seniors playing in our last homecoming game,” Messina said of the win. “I think that everybody was contributing and doing their job the

best they possibly can and that’s what really led us to victory. I think that every game we are getting closer and closer as a group and we’re learning to trust each other more and more, which really helps us during game time.” Capizzi — who was 10-for-16 passing with 110 yards through the air and added 63 yards on 10 carries on the ground — hit Troy, a wide receiver and running back, for a twopoint conversion following Messina’s touchdown for a 26-0 advantage. “It felt sweet to catch the pitch from Peyton,” Troy said. “He’s patient and can find the window for the shovel passes.” After Ward Melville senior cornerback Christian O’Toole recorded his second inter-

ception of the game, Troy cashed in a 20-yard touchdown run for the final six points. “The coaches really prepared us well for Sachem,” Troy said. “I think the team really started to click well in the game, especially the defense — they did a great job stopping the runs.” Winning over Sachem East was a huge move for Ward Melville, which is now at 4-2 for No. 4 in the Division I standings behind undefeated Lindenhurst, William Floyd and marginally behind No. 3 Connetquot in points. The Patriots will tackle Longwood Oct. 20 at 6:30 p.m. before traveling to Lindenhurst Oct. 27. See photos of Ward Melville’s homecoming festivities on page A9.

Holy Spirit, you who solve all problems, light all roads so that I can obtain my goals. You gave me the divine gift to forgive and forget all evil against me, and that in all instances of my life, you are with me. I want in this short prayer to thank you for all things as you confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you in eternal glory. Thank you for your mercy toward me and mine. M.T. The person must say this prayer 3 consecutive days. The request will be granted. This prayer must be published after the favor has been granted. VMW

OpiniOn Editorial

Letters to the editor

Taking the wrong route

I am absolutely amazed at the uncanny, almost savantlike, ability of some people to find secret racist messages in instances perfectly obvious to themselves, but which are invisible to the rest of us. A fine example of this phenomenon occurred recently, when the First lady of the United States, the lovely and gracious Melania Trump, thoughtfully donated collections of children’s books written by Dr. Seuss to school libraries in each of the 50 states. Surely no one could possibly have a problem with this. After all, Dr. Seuss books have sold over 600 million copies, in 20 languages and are universally loved by everyone. But, wait … a school librarian from Cambridge, Massachusetts, Liz Phipps Soeiro, announced that she had rejected the books, saying that they were full of “racist propaganda, caricatures and harmful stereotypes” and “racist mockery.” How can this be? The Cat in the Hat is a racist? Yes, it is claimed, because the Cat in the Hat wears a bow tie, and bow ties were worn by performers

Racist messages invisible to everyone else

We’re not accepting pro-football player Cam Newton’s apology, but we’re not accepting reporter Jourdan Rodrigue’s either. With an editorial staff that houses a female sports editor and reporter, the NFL quarterback’s comments to Rodrigue, a Carolina Panthers beat writer for the Charlotte Observer, hit close to home. In a post-game interview following the Panthers’ 27-24 win over the Detroit Lions Oct. 8, Rodrigue asked Newton about his relationship with a receiver. “Devin Funchess has really seemed to embrace the physicality of his routes and getting those extra yards,” she said. “Does that give you a little bit of enjoyment to see him kind of truck sticking people out there?” [For those who may not know football terminology, routes are plays, like directional paths, and truck sticking is the process of running through tacklers.] As soon as the word “routes” came out of the reporter’s mouth, Newton sported a beaming grin. “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes,” he said in response. “It’s funny.” What’s even more disheartening is that after the comment was made, Rodrigue followed Newton to talk to him about his remarks, and he did not apologize. What is the importance of having females in a male-dominated industry? To focus on football numbers, women account for 45 percent of fans, NFL vice president of marketing Johanna Faries said at the second NFL Women’s Summit earlier this year. A league that a few years ago was completely comprised of men now has two female coaches, two female officials, three female 100 percent owners and a female chief security officer. A small number to be sure, but at least it’s an improvement from the old days. But after Newton’s comment, we fear we’re taking a step backward, or maybe the perceived progress is just that: perceived. Newton’s remarks are inappropriate, degrading and disrespectful, and it’s sad to see and hear that this mentality still exists. Newton tried to play it off like he was joking, or didn’t mean it solely about women, but his response was so specific. Contrary to his implication, you don’t need to be a man or play the sport to have extensive knowledge of it. There are female sports reporters that know more about sports than their male counterparts because many have to go above and beyond to level the playing field. Newton is viewed as a leader on the football field, but his comments off it prove the contrary. However, after some media outlets did some digging, it turns out Rodrigue should not be considered the utmost authority on social consciousness either. Several racist tweets dating back four and five years ago were found on the reporter’s Twitter account. She references her father “being super racist as we pass through Navajo land …” and replied to someone’s comment saying, “He’s the best. Racist jokes the whole drive home.” She even used a racist epithet; although she did post an apology on Twitter. If we don’t want to be disrespected, we need to work on our politics. We all need to be better.

in black minstrel shows in the 1850s, thereby proving that the country’s favorite feline is in fact a closet racist. Who would have known? Even the previous first lady, Michelle Obama, never known as a person likely to overlook a potential act of racism, took great delight in reading Dr. Seuss books to school children.

And so we must ask the question: Is it conceivable that Ms. Soeiro’s announcement might be at least slightly disingenuous, and might be motivated by something other than, or possibly in addition to, her stated desire to stamp out racism? As a small fly in her ointment, a picture turned up, showing a smiling Ms. Soeiro in her classroom, holding a copy of “Green Eggs and Ham” and wearing a Cat in the Hat costume. Might it be that Ms. Soeiro saw the first lady’s thoughtful gift as an opportunity to launch an attack on the president, providing yet another example of his innate racism and probable membership in the KKK? The other example, in case anyone missed it, was his expressed opinion that Mickey Mantle was a better center fielder than Willie Mays, which was strike one. Now Mrs. Trump and Dr. Seuss have provided strike two. And, as we all know, three strikes and you’re out. Are you ready, Maxine Waters?

President Trump’s shameful apologia Jim Soviero, in a letter in The Village Times Herald Sept. 14 edition, “Ignoring left wing violence and ‘haters,’” filled with the usual right-wing attempts to justify President Donald Trump’s shameful apologia for the Nazis, KKKers and other white supremacists who rioted in Charlottesville, raises one interesting issue: the KKK’s “long sordid alliance with the Democratic Party.” Rachel Maddow, not, I suspect, one of Soviero’s favorites, recently devoted almost an entire program to this issue. She noted that President Woodrow Wilson was an ardent racist: he effectively resegregated the U.S. civil service, demoting African-Americans from posts of responsibility to only the most menial positions; and he was a vigorous propagandist for that apology for the KKK, “Birth of a Nation.” Maddow noted that the KKK had strongly supported William McAdoo over Al Smith at the 1924 convention, parading

through Washington D.C., New Jersey and even New York City, although after 103 ballots the dark horse John W. Davis won. Maddow also pointed out that Fred Trump was arrested at a 1927 Klan rally, and that Donald Trump had assimilated Fred’s racism at his knee and in his business. Maddow did not point out the role of the Republican Party in the KKK’s ascension — the ex-slaveholder vigilantes had been kept in check by U.S. troops during Reconstruction. But in 1876, Republican Rutherford B. Hayes made a bargain with the Democrat Samuel J. Tilden, who had won the popular vote 50.9 percent to 47.9 percent, that 20 disputed electoral votes in Florida, Louisiana and South Carolina would go entirely to Hayes, who thus got 185 electoral votes to Tilden’s 184. In exchange, all U.S. troops were withdrawn from the exConfederate states. The KKK unleashed a reign of terror that

swept the ex-slaveholders into power, and southern AfricanAmericans lost almost all rights, regained only with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965. The Republicans stopped being the party of Lincoln and became the party of northern industrialists and financiers, and the Democrats were split between southern demagogues (Bilbo, Rankin) and northern pro-farmer, proworker wings (Bryan, etc.). The northern wing triumphed with Franklin Roosevelt in 1932, but the southern wing held on until the Dixiecrat rebellion in 1948 that led the Dixiecrats firmly into the Republican Party with Goldwater in 1964, cemented by Nixon’s “southern strategy” soon after. And Donald Trump started his campaign with the birther movement; it was intolerable that a black man could be a legitimate president.

OpiniOn Addressing the harassment problem

W

hat people don’t say can speak volumes. Take the Harvey Weinstein allegations. Numerous women have come forward and described abhorrent behavior toward women by someone in power. That’s not a new phenomenon, but what’s new is the identity of the perpetrator and the time period involved — decades, it appears. When asked about the allegations, President Donald Trump said he was “not at all surprised to see it.” Hmm, not at By Daniel Dunaief all surprised? Didn’t the person whose every word and tweet gets splashed across headlines around the world have anything else to say, like, “If the allegations are true, it’s horrible and we should address this problem as a nation.” Or, “We as a country need to address this serious problem.”

D. None of the above

No, he didn’t. In a follow-up question, a reporter asked if Weinstein’s behavior was inappropriate, and Trump responded that the movie executive said it was. Again, not much there. I recognize this wasn’t a women’s rights forum and that he didn’t have prepared remarks or a flowing speech to cite, but he had an opportunity to address a real problem and he seemed more prepared to suggest he knew that Weinstein’s superstar public character had some tarnish. The New York public transport system has run ads for years imploring, “If you see something, say something.” That’s not always easy, especially when no one else might have been around to hear or see inappropriate comments or gestures. This isn’t about political correctness: It’s about allowing people to do their best work without feeling threatened or uncomfortable. Locker room talk, or anything else that resembles a putdown for whatever reason, creates a hostile work environment. Almost exactly a year ago, candidate Trump described several women who accused the Clintons of improper

behavior towards women as “courageous” at a press conference before a debate with Hillary Clinton. While Trump hasn’t shared any such words of support for Weinstein’s victims, others have applauded them for coming forward. If Weinstein’s alleged victims had done so initially, taking on the equivalent of a movie icon could have put their careers at risk. Gender politics are often a challenging and sore point at work. People can often dismiss inappropriate comments as being jokes or suggesting that their words weren’t what they intended. Some jobs, like Wall Street trading, or, well, locker rooms, often involve a type of bawdy humor that is part of the culture. But why should anyone have to tolerate it? With training and a heightened public awareness, the excuse “Well, that’s just the way it is” could turn into, “That’s not the way we do things around here.” Pundits are suggesting that if eight women have come forward to accuse Weinstein, there are likely many more. Then again, if he could and did engage in inappropriate conduct for

decades, you have to imagine there are other men who did it, too. Weinstein, in his own words, needs help. So, too, does the rest of society. He suggested he came from a different era. Others have taken him to task, indicating that somewhere along the line, he missed some major strides society made between whatever time period he imagined and today. Who else is living in that era and how can we help them? Maybe, in addition to training the next set of up-and-coming managers, we should make sure the top executives — most of whom are men — understand what’s OK and what crosses a real line that is not only objectionable, but is also problematic for them and their careers. We watch movies for many reasons: We want to be inspired, we want to understand other people and, sometimes, we want a perspective that helps us understand ourselves better. Maybe the inappropriate actions of a moviemaker can shed some more light on a problem that clearly isn’t unique to one person. A corollary to the transport ad, perhaps, should be, “If you hear something, say something.”

The opposite sexes need each other

I

f a man and a woman are seen together having lunch, the inevitable gossip ensues. The two of them may be colleagues or they may simply be friends. But rumors start. Does this always happen? Not always, of course, but often enough to discourage pairing off for an exchange of ideas or career advice perhaps in business. Now, with sexual harassment the news, By Leah S. Dunaief in there is added pressure for the sexes to go their separate ways lest any movement or words be misunderstood between them. What nonsense. Please be assured that I am as passionately against sexual harassment as anyone on the planet. Wherever it may be found, it should be exposed and

halted. But the pendulum, I believe, may be swinging too far in the other direction. Recently Vice President Mike Pence mentioned that he doesn’t eat alone with a woman who is not his wife. Recent polls indicate that a majority of employees of both sexes feel it is inappropriate to have a drink or dinner together and, although less so, it may also be inappropriate for lunch. Even driving together in a car can be looked at askance. This wariness, although perhaps helpful in avoiding situations of sexual harassment, is a loser for both sexes, especially in the workplace. For men, who are apparently unsure where the boundaries are for a touch on the arm or an innocent compliment on a colleague’s dress, there is the loss of diversity. Women can have different sensibilities and can offer different perspectives than men, to the benefit of both. A recent advertisement featuring a woman has just been yanked by a major company because it may be misinterpreted as racist. My guess is that no woman executive of that company

saw the ad before it went public. For women, the loss is perhaps greater. Since most of the leadership of companies and institutions is still made up of men, the mentorship and sponsorship of female employees is at least as vital, or even more so, than for male junior-level employees. But if a woman cannot enjoy a close professional working relationship with such a sponsor, she is often blocked from moving up in the ranks. I am reminded of my own business life and the people who helped me advance. Yes, there were a couple of women mentors who were willing to share their skills with me and promote my status, but there were more men along the way who selected me for advancement. One local businessman volunteered important advice to me at a critical time in the early years of the newspaper. Another energetically proposed me as a candidate for president of the New York Press Association, a position for which I will always be grateful. Another supported my intuition at a decisive juncture, I’m sure I don’t know why, but it worked out well.

Several others helped me with various financial matters. Did I meet with them alone for lunch or dinner or, heavens, for a drink? You bet I did. How else to get private time for critical conversation? Meetings in the office are routinely interrupted or overheard. Did I ever meet alone with anyone of the opposite sex in his bedroom? You can put money on the answer being “no”! There are lines one doesn’t cross, no matter what generation one belongs to, and they really are not so difficult to decipher. Are work colleagues ever sexually attracted to each other? As long as there are men and women, there can be attraction between them. But so what? That’s the way the two sexes were put forth. Presumably we adults know all about that and can conduct ourselves accordingly. Or, to return to square one, we can avoid each other completely. We women have a great deal we can offer men and vice versa. It would be so foolish to limit our contacts to only half the population. And besides, it wouldn’t nearly be as much fun.
