3V civic association opposes gas station plans BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

RITA J. EGAN

The Three Village Civic Association is taking action to prevent a gas station from “changing the scenery” in the area. Magid Setauket Associates LLC, owner of Shell gas station on Route 25A and Jones Street, applied for variances to the Town of Brookhaven Board of Zoning Appeals in the beginning of March. The company submitted proposed plans to construct a large canopy and a lighted electric sign at the gas station. Members of the civic association have expressed concerns over the proposed plans to build the fuel canopy, which would measure 79 feet in length, 26 feet in width and approximately 25 feet in height, setback 14 1/2 feet from 25A, which is less than the distance required by the town. The company has proposed plans to install a 72-square-foot freestanding ground sign that exceeds the 24 square feet permitted by Brookhaven, with a maximum illuminance that also surpasses the town’s requirements. After receiving news of the proposed variances, the civic association informed its members via email and stated that between a seven-mile stretch along 25A, from St. James to Port Jefferson, there are no gas station canopies. “This canopy and the associated digital sign would make this a precedent-setting project which would open the door for all

The owner of the Shell gas station on Route 25A and Jones Street has submitted variances to the Town of Brookhaven’s Board of Zoning Appeals to construct a gas canopy and install a 72-square-foot lighted sign. the other stations along 25A to do the same,” the email read. Representatives from Magid Setauket Associates were originally scheduled to appear before the board March 21, but due to inclement weather, the meeting was postponed until March 28. The company’s petition was then scheduled as a holdover for the board’s April 18 meeting. Herb Mones, chair of the civic’s land use committee, said he is hopeful the postponement may mean the applicant is rethinking their proposals. He said state Assemblyman Steven Englebright (D-Setauket) and town Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (DPort Jefferson Station) wrote letters to the town’s Board of Zoning Appeals to oppose the station’s request for variances.

“The large canopy proposed by the Shell station is unusual and out of place in our historic downtown Setauket,” Mones said. “Simply put — it overwhelms the sense of place we have worked so hard to preserve and protect in the Three Villages. The electronic sign, positioned close to the roadway, may be well suited for a four-lane highway, not for our historic Main Street.” The civic association was one of the key organizations involved in the Route 25A resident visioning meetings that were spearheaded by Cartright in 2017, and its officers have discussed changes at the Shell station with Magid Setauket Associates in the past, including the addition of a convenience store, according to George Hoffman, the civic’s first vice president.

“We opposed the plan, citing the location and limited parking space on the property,” Hoffman said. “The civic association hopes the current plan is not a way to gain approval by seeking several variances from the ZBA and, once in hand, seeking the final approval for the convenience store.” Omar Ishtiaque, who owns Cupeez DriveThru less than a quarter of a mile west from the Shell station, said he and a few of his customers also have concerns. The business owner said he has seen many changes along the roadways since his family opened the store 35 years ago. He said he feels the historical aspect of the village is something that draws people in and makes residents appreciate their surroundings. “As far as our position on this, we’re basically about how it affects our community, how it affects our children, how it affects the traffic,” he said. Ishtiaque said while he’s not against development, a sense of place is important to him, and with his own business, he has taken down signage that was near the roadway and has tried to keep the store as traditional looking as possible. “When a lot of the newer changes come in with corporations funding these type of businesses, yes, it’s great in a lot of ways, but at the same time I think it takes away a piece of our community,” he said. There was no comment from a Magid Setauket Associates representative.

Two familiar faces in the Three Village area are ready to share their creative sides with their fellow residents. Former Suffolk County Legislator Vivian Viloria-Fisher and Emma S. Clark Memorial Library’s librarian Carolyn Emerson will be the featured poets at All Souls Episcopal Church’s Second Saturdays Poetry Reading April 14 in Stony Brook. While politics and poetry may seem part of two different worlds, Viloria-Fisher said she believes reading fiction of any kind helps a person develop empathy, something she feels is essential for an elected official to have. “Literature is an avenue to receive and to give, and that’s what art does,” she said. “It expresses what you’re feeling, and I think that you’re able to express that when you have empathy for the feelings of others.” Vivian Viloria-Fisher Viloria-Fisher served six full terms as Suffolk County legislator and was deputy presiding officer for six years. She currently is campaigning to be on the ticket for the Democratic primary for the 1st Congressional District. Before embarking on a political career, she taught English and Spanish in local schools, including Advanced Placement Spanish in the Three Village Central School District. She later went on to become chair of the district’s foreign language department. Despite two busy careers, she said poetry has been part of her life for as long as she can remember, writing for herself and special events. “I love to capture moments and feeling in poetry,” ViloriaFisher said, adding that she prefers her poems to rhyme, and she feels imagery, metaphors, cadence and similes are important in the genre. The former legislator said she hopes attendees at the April 14 reading will appreciate seeing a different side of her. “I think people see me a little bit more in terms of social justice and science, and I want them to see the artist in me as well,” she said. For Emerson, her job allows her to show a bit more creativity on a regular basis, she said. She is involved with poetry readings, literary programs and writing workshops at the library. The librarian said she’s a lifelong lover of literature and has been writing poetry since fifth grade. “I love the compact form of poetry,” Emerson said. “My parents were members of a poetry group in Miami, which I occasionally attended, and my father sometimes Carolyn Emerson recited lines of poetry at the dinner table, so I grew up having a lot of exposure to poetry.” Emerson, who has been a featured reader at Suffolk County Community College, said her poetry tends to be nature oriented. “I like to observe nature, and I feel that I can use it as a metaphor,” she said. The librarian’s poems have appeared in several publications, including Long Island Quarterly and Long Island Botanical Society Newsletter. Emerson is the founder of the Euterpe Poetry Group, and in 2007, she was a semifinalist for The Paumanok Poetry Award. She is currently working on a manuscript about her experiences searching for her birth mother.

The librarian said she has attended the Second Saturdays Poetry Readings at the church in the past and has read a few of her pieces during the open reading portion. “It’s a wonderful space for poetry,” Emerson said. “It’s intimate and just a lovely, serene space to listen to poetry.” All Souls Episcopal Church is located at 61 Main St., Stony Brook. The Second Saturdays Poetry Reading will be held Saturday, April 14, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is hosted by Suffolk County Poet Laureate Gladys Henderson. An open reading will follow the intermission, and all are welcome to read their own work or that of another. For more details, call 631-655-7798.

Over 10 years, Eaton donated more than 100 times, according to Pugliese. “Without them we couldn’t function,” said Dr. Dennis Galanakis, director of transfusion medicine at Stony Brook Hospital. “The problem with platelets is they have to be stored in a special way. They have to have all the tests that are required for safety. They only have a five-day shelf life, and it takes two days to do all the tests, so in practice, the shelf life is about three days.” Verbeck was a blood donor before he heard about platelets, and while at first he said he was skeptical, that changed when a friend of his was diagnosed with cancer. “I started doing it, and just like my dad, I felt it was a good thing to do,” he said. “I was doing it five or six times a year. After my dad died, it was a loss, and not just my personal loss, but it was a loss with their supply — it was one less person donating. So that gave me the impetus.” The entire platelet donation process takes about two hours. Machines take half a cup of blood through one vein and process it to

Service members to receive educational support

BY DESIRÉE KEEGAN DESIREE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

LEE ZELDIN

Students who have served and their families are receiving some transitional support. U.S. Reps. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) and Peter King (R-Seaford) announced the expansion of the VetsSuccess on Campus program to Suffolk and Nassau County community colleges. The initiative, through the Department of Veterans Affairs, helps veterans, service members and their qualified dependents succeed in school using a coordinated delivery of oncampus benefits assistance, including offering referral services and peer-to-peer counseling. The program is intended to lead students to graduation and prepare them to enter the workforce in viable careers. “Our nation’s servicemen and women put their lives on the line to protect us, and when they return home, they have earned nothing less than our unwavering support when transitioning back into civilian life,” Zeldin said during an announcement of the program’s expansion at Suffolk County Community College April 4. “The expansion of the VetsSuccess on Campus program means local veterans here at Suffolk and Nassau will have access to an even wider rage of tools at their disposal to help them transition into their new lives after military service.”

U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin speaks about the expansion of the VetsSuccess on Campus program to Suffolk and Nassau community colleges at a press conference in Selden April 4. Suffolk County is home to the largest number of veterans in the state. SCCC serves more than 700 military-connected students annually across three campuses. Nassau County Community College serves more than 300 military-connected students each year. Students like retired Air Force Master

Sgt. Olivia McMahon benefit from the program, and she said she’s thrilled to hear that what she was once provided remote access to will now feature a more personal connection to resources and benefits. “As a single working parent and veteran, I cannot stress enough the importance of this program,” the SCCC student said. “It

allows us to reach our educational goals and further educate our community.” Christopher Holder, the VetsSuccess on-campus program counselor, was at the April 4 press conference to talk to veterans about his position in the program and share firsthand experience with reacclimating to society. “As a veteran, as a disabled veteran, I have made the transition these students are making now,” he said. “I hope that my experience on both sides, as a veteran and as an administrator, will help these veterans make theirs.” During the event, Zeldin and King presented Christopher Adams, SCCC vice president of student affairs, with an American flag flown over the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., to commemorate the expansion of the program and to honor the veterans it serves. “Suffolk County Community College has a long history of assisting student veterans and maximizing their benefits and achieving their educational goals,” Adams said. “They deserve it and we are honored to be able to recognize their service to our country in this way.” VetsSuccess on Campus began as a pilot program in 2009 at the University of South Florida in Tampa and has expanded to such an extent that SCCC and Nassau are now two of 99 colleges in the nation with the program.

Patriots push past Middle Country for first win of year BY BILL LANDON The Patriots proved they have what it takes to go the distance. After falling to Longwood 90-60 in the first League I matchup of the season, Ward Melville’s girls track and field team reversed the roles at an April 10 home meet against Middle Country, winning 90-60 with help from long-distance runners. Junior Kate Cochran led the way in the 3,000-meter run with a winning time of 11 minutes, 39.5 seconds. She was pushed by Middle Country’s Kaitlynn Drennan from the moment the gun sounded, with Drennan finishing just six seconds behind her. Things were

despite how young this year’s squad is. “We were strongest in the sprints … the kids did very, very well,” he said, noting Maritza Blanchard, Dana Cerbone and Lexie Roth are players his opponents should watch out for. “It’s early in the season, but they keep on improving.” Dion said he also saw several bright spots on the afternoon, especially with his jumpers. D’Angio won the triple and the long jump and notched a personal best clearing 5 feet in the high jump, according to Dion. The coach added Lauren Moore, a freshman, increased her personal best in the triple jump by 4 feet. She notched another personal best with a 4-inch increase in the high jump, clearing 4-8. “That’s huge,” said Dion. The Patriots are back in action April 19 hosting William Floyd at 4:15 p.m. Middle Country is back on the track April 14 at the Coaches Meet at Bay Shore at 9:30 a.m.

different in the 1,500, where it was a one, two finish for Ward Melville. Freshman Emma Rathburn crossed the line first at 5:18.1, and Shannon Ryan clocked in at 5:26.3. Drennan rounded out the top three with a 5:47.6 time. “We studied the statistics — they’re a young team, they’re rebuilding, they have some very talented sprinters, but I knew that our strong events were going to be the distance events, the throws, along with some of the field events,” Ward Melville head coach J.P. Dion said. “From what they had in the winter and from last spring, I knew that this is where we could gain most of our points.” Ward Melville senior Allyson Gaedje won at 800 in 2:36, a pace well off her personal best but enough to take the title. Senior captain Kiera Hughes competed in the 100 hurdles, 100 dash, 4×100 relay and long jump. A returning All-County athlete in the spring and winter, she was ranked first in the winter 55 hurdles. “I thought I did pretty well,” she said of her performances on the afternoon. “I’m happy, but my long jump was my strongest event, and it’s a good way to get back [into a rhythm].” Hughes finished second in the long jump behind Ward Melville sophomore Allison D’Angio, who bested the field with a 15 feet 2.5 inches leap. Middle Country freshman Jada Hodge placed third covering 12-11.75. “Kiera helps me out a lot by working with the younger athletes, helping them,” Dion said. Ward Melville’s Samantha Sturgess, who also ran the 4×100 and 4×800 relays, won the 400 hurdles in 68 seconds. “I had a season-best, but it’s not my personal best,” the senior said. “I don’t have a problem getting over the hurdles, but I have to get faster in between.” Middle Country head coach Charles Cuzzo said he was pleased with what he saw

Architecture Guide HOME FEATURES: arches, columns, dormers, roofs, windows, classic molding RESIDENTIAL STYLES: Art Deco – Homes built in this style feature geometric elements and a vertically oriented design. California Bungalow – A forerunner of the Craftsman style, California Bungalows offer rustic exteriors, sheltered-feeling interiors, and spacious front porches. Cape Cod – A true classic, Cape Cod homes – square or rectangular one-story structures with gabled roofs and unornamented fronts – were among America’s first houses. Colonial – An offshoot of the Cape Cod style, Colonial homes feature a rectangular, symmetric design, second-floor bedrooms, clapboard siding, and gabled roofs. Contemporary – Unmistakably modern in feel, Contemporary style homes are identifiable by their odd-sized windows, lack of ornamentation, and unusual mix of wall materials. Craftsman – Full or partial-width porches framed by tapered columns, overhanging eaves, and exposed roof rafters differentiate a Craftsman home from the similar California Bungalow. Creole – A front wall that recedes to form a first-story porch and a second-story balcony highlights the Creole Cottage design. Dutch Colonial – German, or “Deutsch”, settlers in Pennsylvania originated the Dutch Colonial style, dominated by a barn-like broad gambrel roof with flaring eaves.

Federal – This style arose amid a renewed interest in Greek Roman culture, as its classical ornamentation around cornices, doors, and windows demonstrates. French Provincial – Balance and symmetry define the French Provincial style, which includes a steep hip roof; balcony and porch balustrades; and rectangular doors set in arched openings. Georgian – Refined and symmetrical with paired chimneys and a decorative crown, Georgian houses were named after English royalty. Gothic Revival – English romanticism influenced this style marked by “Gothic” windows with pointed arches; exposed framing timbers; and steep, vaulted roofs. Greek Revival – Large porches, entryway columns, and a front door surrounded by narrow rectangular windows characterize Greek Revival homes. International – The International style exposes functional building elements, including elevator shafts, ground-to-ceiling plate glass windows, and smooth facades. Italianate – Symmetrical bay windows in front; small chimneys set in irregular locations; tall, narrow, windows; and in some cases towers, typify Italianate houses. Monterey – The Monterey style updates the New England Colonial style with an adobe brick exterior and a second floor with a balcony. National – Rooted in Native American and pre-railroad dwellings, the National style consists of a rectangular shape with sidegabled roofs or square layouts with pyramidal roofs.

BIG RESULTS

Neoclassical – Recognize Neoclassical homes, which exist in incarnations from one-story cottages to multilevel manses, by their Ionic or Corinthian-columned porches. Prairie – Originated by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Prairie style house comes in two styles--boxy and symmetrical or low-slung and asymmetrical. Pueblo – Flat roofs, parapet walls with round edges, straight-edge window frames, earth-colored stucco or adobe-brick walls, and projecting roof beams typify Pueblos. Queen Anne – Emerging in the late Victorian era, the style employs inventive, multistory floor plans that often include projecting wings, several porches and balconies, and multiple chimneys with decorative chimney pots. Ranch – Similar to the Spanish Colonial, Prairie, and Craftsman styles, Ranch homes are set apart by pitched-roof construction, built-in garages, wood or brick exterior walls, siding, and picture windows. Regency – Although they borrow from the Georgian’s classic lines, Regency homes eschew ornamentation. They’re symmetrical, two or three stories, and usually built in brick. Typically, they feature an octagonal window over the front door, one chimney at the side of the house, double-hung windows, and a hip roof. Saltbox – This New England Colonial style gained the Saltbox nickname because its sharply sloping gable roof resembled boxes used for storing salt. Second Empire – A Victorian style, Second Empire homes feature mansard roofs with dormer windows, molded cornices, and dec-

orative brackets under the eaves. Shed – A subset of the Modern style, Shed houses are asymmetric with multiple roofs sloping in different directions, which creates several geometric shapes. Shingle – An American style that echoes the Queen Anne, Shingle style is distinguished by unadorned doors, windows, porches, and cornices; continuous wood shingles; a steeply pitched roof line; and large porches. Shotgun – Tradition says that a shotgun blast can trace a straight path from the front to back door of this long, narrow home. The style is characterized by a single story with a gabled roof. Spanish Eclectic – Taking its cues from early Spanish missions, Spanish Eclectic then adds a dash of details from Moorish, Byzantine, Gothic, and Renaissance architectural styles. Split Level – A Modern style, Split Level design sequesters certain living activities, such as sleeping or socializing. Stick – Decorative horizontal, vertical, or diagonal boards characterize Stick houses, which are members of the Victorian family. Tudor – Half-timbering on bay windows and upper floors, and facades that are dominated by one or more steeply pitched cross gables typify Tudor homes. Victorian – Built during the rise of the machine age, Victorian architecture often incorporated decorative details such as brackets, spindles and patterned shingles.

Letters to the editor

A myriad of reasons for Clinton’s loss

CUOMO’S OFFICE

An overheight vehicle detector installed at an on-ramp to the Southern State Parkway

Shore up oversights in passenger safety

A horrific crash on the Southern State Parkway injured many Huntington High School students when a coach bus slammed into an overpass April 9. The accident could have been easily avoided, elected officials said, and we couldn’t agree more. While we cannot control human error, this should be a wake-up call to re-examine our use of technological safety devices. U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he called for improved transportation safety measures at the very same place, Exit 18 at the Eagle Avenue bridge, where an accident occurred in 2012. As a result, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration advised truck drivers and commercial vehicles that a new GPS system was available to warn of parkways and roadways along their route with low clearances. While installing this commercial GPS system into commercial vehicles was highly recommended, Schumer admitted it was not mandated by federal law. Elected officials presumed transportation companies would voluntarily shell out money to improve safety. Decisions regarding passenger safety should not be left in the hands of private corporations. Federal, state and county politicians need to reconsider legislation that would require this vital, potentially lifesaving equipment on school buses, coach buses, RVs and other tall passenger vehicles. This accident also warrants taking a closer look at those new technologies in the process of being installed on Long Island’s parkways. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced Dec. 5 of last year that $4.3 million in funds would be spent to install overheight vehicle detectors at 13 locations in Nassau and Suffolk counties. His goal was to use stateof-the-art technology to prevent bridge strikes that can be potentially fatal and snarl traffic for hours. These detectors are installed at the top of on-ramps and relay an invisible beam set at the specific height needed to clear the parkway’s bridges. If a vehicle breaks the beam, the device triggers a colored LED message sign to flash a warning to the driver, alerting the truck or bus will not clear the bridge. Joe Morrissey, spokesman for the New York State Department of Transportation, confirmed these detectors have been installed at the Eagle Avenue overpass, but said they are not yet active due to calibration and testing. Morrissey admitted even if the detectors had been functioning, they would not have prevented the accident. They are not set up to scan for overheight vehicles entering from the Belt Parkway, as the coach bus did. Elected politicians and transportation officials made the assumption that because buses and commercial vehicles are not allowed on the Belt Parkway, none would enter the Southern State Parkway from that ramp. Cuomo’s plan to install these vehicle detectors needs to be looked over again to better determine where sensors need to be placed. Additional measures, like notification to highway police when the sensor is set off, should also be considered. These oversights are putting holes in the safety net.

I would like to thank Stephanie Werner for another interesting and informative letter, “Wisdom, election don’t go together,” in the April 5 edition of The Village Times Herald. Ms. Werner enlightened us all by disclosing the real reasons for the shocking defeat of Hillary Clinton in the last presidential election, which, as she stated, were Russian collusion and our inept, outdated and unnecessary electoral system. Although these factors were unquestionably vital reasons, they were not the only ones. As the esteemed loser herself has told us, there was also a myriad of other reasons, most of which she has thoughtfully taken the time specifically to enumerate for us in great detail. Some of these are as follows: James Comey, Vladimir Putin, Barack Obama, the media, Bernie Sanders and his supporters, Jill Stein, sexism, white resentment, the Democratic National Committee, misogyny, a Democratic predecessor, WikiLeaks, her

“traditional” campaign, the debate questions, political journalists, campaign financing, TV coverage of the campaign, low-information voters, women under pressure from men, Joe Biden, The New York Times, xenophobia, the FBI, Anthony Weiner, polling data, cable news, fake news, web robots, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, antiAmerican forces, people wanting change, people who assumed she’d win, Steve Bannon, voter ID laws, Chief Justice John Roberts, colluding Trump officials, Julian Assange, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, the Drudge Report and content farms in Macedonia. It is truly hard to believe that Hillary actually lost the election, considering her outstanding record of accomplishment in her eight years as a U.S. senator from New York. As a result of her great intellect and boundless energy, she actually formulated a total of eleven bills — more than one per year — of which one passed in

both the Senate and the House and thus became a law. This law, as is well known to all, renamed a U.S. courthouse in New York City as the Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse. And, as if this alone was not enough, think of her many pivotal accomplishments during her tenure as secretary of state. Although no one has been able to list any of these specifically, it is clear that there must have been many. Why else would so many foreign agencies have donated so many hundreds of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation? Unfortunately, it is possible that the state of Mrs. Clinton’s health may discourage her from running yet again for the presidency of the United States. This is in contrast to President Trump, whose health is virtually perfect, which may be related to his habit of regularly playing golf.

Students are again making a difference The March 24 March for Our Lives will be remembered most for the powerful voices and intensity of the students who marched and spoke out against great odds. They have begun a journey of activism that has the potential to permanently awaken a generation. For those young people committed to that journey, I would like to propose a next step in their self-education. Read Dr. Martin Luther King’s 1964 book, “Why We Can’t Wait.” The book is the history of the six-month struggle that led up to the March on Washington and Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. It includes the story of the major part played by brave young students who were the “foot soldiers” in that struggle. Although 1963 was the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, African-Americans

in parts of the American South still lived in a virtual terrorist state, enforced both legally and illegally. But a decade of events preceding the spring of 1963 had brought them a new sense of pride and determination, and a growing awareness by many American that things had to change. America would not have had a march on Washington or Dr. King’s speech without the successful “Birmingham campaign” in April 1963. Dr. King’s decision to tackle “Bombingham,” the city regarded as the most segregated and most violent in the deep South, was a strategic and risky gamble. And a key element of its success was the courage and discipline of thousands of high school and younger students who studied, trained and pledged themselves to nonviolent direct action.

These brave students stood up against police, police dogs, fire hoses, beatings and arrest to fill the jails of Birmingham to overflowing. Television brought this shocking struggle into the living rooms of America for the first time and virtually shamed Americans in front of the rest of the world. “Why We Can’t Wait” is an incredible firsthand narrative which nails down a turning point in history that paved the way for the many liberation movements that have followed. But it is also a primer on the power of nonviolent activism combined with the determination of courageous young people. That combination, God willing, may once again be moving this nation further toward the ultimate dream of America’s founders: “Justice for all.” Bravo.

Tom Lyon Mount Sinai

Letter writer twists himself in knots Once again, Jim Soviero in a letter to The Village Times Herald in the March 29 edition, “Deadly multilevel mistakes in Florida,” twists himself into knots to spread the blame for Nikolas Cruz’s crimes to everyone and his brother, while studiously avoiding the key point:

Cruz could put his AR-15 assault rifle in his duffle bag, walk into the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and murder seventeen people, because he first could walk up to the counter at a neighborhood store and buy that AR-15, no waiting and no questions asked.

That’s the Florida lethal-butlegal “stand your ground” gun culture in action. No civilian needs, or should be able to obtain, a weapon of war whose sole use is killing human beings as fast as you can pull the trigger.

Confessions of a detested and detestable journalist

H

ello, my name is Dan and I’m a ... journalist. It’s been a few days since my last meeting and a lot has happened since then. For starters, I’ve decided to hate myself. I’m coming to grips with the idea that, as a journalist, I am detested and detestable. I ask questions. All the time. Just ask my wife and kids, although they’re too annoyed with my questions to entertain yours. I have this insane urge to understand and appreciate the By Daniel Dunaief nuance of a word or phrase. I even have a dictionary. Didn’t we burn those long ago? Aren’t we supposed to look for the underlined red words in a document?

D. None of the above

My editors and I also change my words. What you see doesn’t just leap from my fingers onto the page. How are you supposed to know what I’m thinking if I let my ideas develop before shouting them at you? I don’t have a specific character limit. Oh, and I only use hashtags when I’m pushing the button on my phone. Sacrebleu! And I write foreign phrases like “sacrebleu” to express my surprise. Additionally, I absolutely adore alliteration. I can’t help smiling when I think about the movie “Broadcast News.” I know, I know, we’re supposed to hate everything with the word “news” in it, but I grin when I hear Albert Brooks asking, “Pretty peppy party, isn’t it, pal?” I frequently read. Sometimes, I’ll be in a room with a television and I’ll have a book or a, gasp, newspaper in my hands with the TV off. How am I supposed to relate to everyone when I’m not watching TV? And deadlines? They’re so real for

me that I sometimes don’t talk to my wife and kids just before they arrive. I used to work for Bloomberg News — the fastest twitch environment I’d ever experienced. An editor once followed me into the bathroom to find out how long I would be in there because I had a story to write. When I was on deadline at Bloomberg, particularly around earnings season, I would give my wife all of five seconds to share whatever she needed to communicate before I raced to the next story. Oh, and I sometimes make mistakes. That’s horrific, especially when I have to explain how I could have erred. I used to have to write letters reviewing how I blundered; I called them the “I suck because ...” letters. I periodically imagined weaseling my way out of trouble by claiming how tired I was from getting up at 4 a.m. when I learned of a story I’d missed in Europe. That, however, would never fly, because a mistake has no defense; it requires a correction. I also use semi-

colons and colons, which have nothing to do with my bathroom habits. Sure, there are times when someone claimed I made a mistake when, in fact, the mistake was not agreeing with their opinion. That’s not a mistake — a difference of opinion. But, hey, that’s another reason to hate me. I think about whether something is an opinion or a fact. An opinion lives in a realm where people need to repeat it to make sure everyone agrees. A fact can and should stand on its own. It’s hard, when we’re all human, to ignore the pleas of people in power who want journalists and their stories to go away. One of my journalism professors said he tried to limit his friendships so they wouldn’t prevent him from doing his job. That’s tough because I enjoy interacting, even with people who don’t share the same viewpoint. But, wait, I hate that because, ultimately, I’m loathsome and detestable.

Celebrating our 42nd anniversary as Facebook flounders

R

ecently I received a voicemail message asking me if we were planning to cover fairly a contentious issue currently in the community. The speaker cared deeply about one side, and said he understood that we had friends on the other side of the issue. As a result of those ties, were we going to favor them or, at the least, bury the story in the back of the paper where no one would read it? Forty-two years ago this week, a handful of us started The Village Times in a tiny By Leah S. Dunaief office but with great ambition. We promised to serve the community according to “the highest ideals of a free press.” It was 1976, the bicentennial year. We were well aware of the singular role the press played in the

Between you and me

American Revolution and the sanctity with which the Founding Fathers viewed the press. Today, we acknowledge other forms of free speech and press by putting them all together and calling them “media.” But the press, specifically the printed word on newsprint, will always be where my heart is in this business, no matter that we now have a website, a Facebook page, a Twitter account, a place on YouTube and are called TBR News Media. We’ve gone viral on the internet, with over 17 million views for our story and video dealing with school safety in Rocky Point, and to have that kind of reach certainly impresses me. Nonetheless the printed story, the elegance of crafting exactly the right words to describe a scene or an issue or emotion, laid out efficiently and attractively, and most especially truthfully and fairly on a page, with pictures to drive home the information, gives me enormous professional satisfaction. Words as precision tools are not respected the same way on the more frenetic media. Nor are truth and facts always respected there. Because there is

little or no vetting, some people take advantage of the lawlessness to write the most astonishing things, slanted or even untrue as they may be, and others willingly believe what they read. Right now, Facebook, which was started in 2004, is facing the consequences of publishing unmonitored content presented as news or advertising, as CEO Mark Zuckerberg tries to answer hard questions put to him by the U.S. Congress. Not to revel in another media’s troubles, but everything printed in a newspaper is vetted, even the ads, the sources of the ads and, to the extent possible for facts, the letters. That does not mean everything you might read in our papers is correct. We can and do make mistakes. But those are, or should be, immediately acknowledged and corrected in the next edition. Nor are we without bias, however hard we try. But if we try for a truthful and balanced presentation in every story that we print, to a large extent we can succeed. We reserve our opinions for the opinion pages. At least, so I believe. With such a long track record, I was quite sur-

prised to hear that question on my voicemail. The caller left his number, and I was able to return his phone call. We had a heart-to-heart talk, and that, along with the story we wrote, I trust, persuaded him that we had dealt with the matter fairly. If he were trying to encourage us to lean in his direction on the issue, his strategy clearly didn’t work. Here are some of the other things newspapers don’t do. We don’t compile personal information about our readers and then sell that information to potential advertisers. We don’t even sell the names and addresses of our subscribers, although we have been asked a number of times. Your privacy is not for our profit. We don’t write stories about businesses in order to get their advertising. Our newspapers have never been hacked. But I wouldn’t mind having a couple of their billions. And forgive my pride if I suggest that there is some kind of old-fashioned honor that underpins a good newspaper serving its community. That’s not a sentiment I associate with the internet.
