Community joins together to clean up Stony Brook Creek BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM
Residents and legislators gathering in front of the Hercules Pavilion across from Stony Brook Village Center had more on their minds than shopping the morning of Aug. 6. Gloria Rocchio, president of The Ward Melville Heritage Organization, announced at a press conference that Suffolk County awarded the organization a $10,750 grant. The funds will be used for a pilot program to remove 12,000 square feet of phragmites from the shoreline of Stony Brook Creek. Phragmites, an invasive species plant, has been known to choke many waterways on Long Island. In Stony Brook Creek, the debris caused by the phragmites has created silt buildup, which in turn has caused flooding along the creek. According to Rocchio, county Legislator Kara Hahn (D-Setauket) secured the grant, and WMHO and Avalon Park & Preserve matched it. The total cost of the project is $21,500. Rocchio said the problems caused by the phragmites have been going on for years. The town line between Smithtown and Brookhaven goes straight down the creek, and the estuary
is owned partially by the two towns, Suffolk County, private residents and not-for-profits, all of which made it challenging to determine who was responsible for it in the past. WMHO’s president said water goes into and out of the creek twice a day “There are over 300 acres of land that have runoff on it that empty into this 5-acre creek,” she said. When the banks of the creek overflow, she said, the water goes into the Stony Brook Grist Mill, which was built in 1751 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Rocchio said the water that continually flows through the mill every day has destroyed lower parts of the structure as well as its mechanisms. “We can’t lose this beautiful heritage we have here,” Rocchio said. She added that residents’ yards have also been flooded and one homeowner had to pull up the level of her bulkhead because the water comes in regularly. The day before the press conference, workers from North Shore Tree & Landscaping and Usher Plant Care began eliminating the phragmites using a hand cutting process, which involves no chemicals or mechanical equipment.

chairman, explained the procedure. “The process includes hand cutting of the stalk in a certain way and coming back in two weeks to do a second cutting,” he said. “It’s usually completed within 21 days, weather permitting.” In addition to the legislators and residents on hand at the press conference, owners and
employees of local businesses including Lessing’s Hospitality Group, People’s United Bank, Stony Brook Marine Services, Stony Brook Harbor Kayak & Paddleboard Rentals and Stony Brookside Bed & Bike Inn were in attendance to help remove pilings that floated into the creek and logs from fallen trees to stop PHRAGMITES Continued on A8

3V students raise over $41K for children’s hospital BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM It may have started in front of their Stony Brook home, but now the Mastrianos’ lemonade stand is a community event raising thousands each year for a good cause. The 7th annual Three Village Kids Lemonade Stand was back at R.C. Murphy Junior High School for the third year Aug. 5. The event, founded by siblings Maddie and Joseph Mastriano, had the help of dozens of student volunteers from the Three Village Central School District. More than 500 attended to buy 50-cent cups of lemonade and other treats. There were games to be played,
music from School of Rock students and Stony Brook University athletes visiting. Sales from the lemonade stand benefit Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. The goal of $40,000 was exceeded by the end of the day. This year’s winner of the Lemonheads of the District award was Nassakeag Elementary School. Student representatives Brielle Norton and Kayden Laucella were on hand to accept the award. For more information or to make an online donation, visit www.threevillagekidslemonadestand.com.

Jewish War Veterans help their fellow former soldiers BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Members of one veterans post are not letting diminishing membership stand in their way when it comes to helping former soldiers. The Col. Mickey Marcus Post 336 of the Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America regularly collects donations to help veterans. In the last few months, the group raised money to sponsor three barbecues at the Long Island Veterans Home — one in August and two in September — along with a September golf outing for the home. Norman Weitz, post commander, said many of the members volunteer at the veterans home, and while the post has contributed funds in the past, including a $5,000 donation in 2017, this is the first time they are sponsoring events. Fred Sganga, executive director of the Long Island Veterans Home at Stony Brook University, said the post’s contributions are valued. “Their generosity has a direct impact on the quality of life of those veteran residents we are so honored to serve each and every day,” he said. Since October 2017, the vets have contributed approximately $16,000 to causes dedicated to helping U.S. veterans, according to Weitz. In addition to the veterans home, the Col. Mickey Marcus Post 336, which meets in Centereach, has donated to various organizations including Paws of War, the Suffolk County United Veterans, and Operation Remember, a campaign spearheaded by county Legislator Kara Hahn (D-Setauket) to update

memorials in Setauket, Stony Brook and Port Jefferson to include those who served in the Gulf wars. When it comes to donation dollars, Weitz and Barry Kopeloff, junior vice commander and chaplain, credit member Stan Feltman, 93, for enabling the group to donate as much as they do. “He’s an amazing individual,” Weitz said. Feltman can be seen every day outside the Middle Island Walmart selling poppies to raise money for his fellow veterans. Weitz said Feltman, at times, has collected up to $1,800 a
month, and while many give a single dollar or two to the veteran, others sometimes give more. “One lady said here’s an extra $30 just for you, and Stan is independent, so he just throws that money back in the pot,” Weitz said. Kopeloff said when it comes time to donate money, post members suggest organizations and then the group votes on whether or not to do so. While many have heard of the Veterans of Foreign Wars or the American Legion, there are those who are unfamiliar with the Jewish War Veterans.
“We’d like people to understand what we do for the veterans, what we do for the community,” said Weitz. Members of the post, which was originally called the Three Village Post 336, meet at the New Village Community Center in Centereach once a month. While there are more than 100 members who live in various areas in Brookhaven and even outside the town, Weitz said they may get around 20 members who can show up. The post is always looking for new members, and like similar veterans groups, have no younger members who served after the Vietnam War. “After Vietnam, it’s hard to get them because they’re young, and they’re working,” said Kopeloff, who is also on the Jewish Committee on Scouting. Kopeloff said during Scout Sabbaths, when Eagle Scouts visit synagogues, he will ask if anyone in the congregation is interested in the post. Weitz and Kopeloff said members can be anyone from the Jewish faith that have served with any of the military branches of the United States or any allied nations. He said everyone has something important to contribute. “The veterans that are coming home today from the Gulf War, from Afghanistan, are more attuned to helping veterans, and I think this would be a great plus,” Weitz said.

Stony Brook receives more than $2 million in grants from science foundation BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Stony Brook University has been awarded more than $2 million in grants that will go toward funding mathematics, engineering, physics and other science education. On July 26, U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) announced the university had been awarded five grants. “Whether it’s educating the next generation, helping us protect our planet or pioneering the future of mathematics, Stony Brook University is on the front lines of research and innovation,” said Zeldin in a press release. “Driving this critical federal funding back to some of the brightest minds of our generation, located right here on Long Island, will go a long way in helping these
scientists carry out their vital work.” Of the five grants, the university’s engineering academy will receive the most funding with more than $1.1 million going to the program. The academy’s stated goal is to increase students’ motivation to pursue careers in fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The program will prepare middle school students for advanced science and math courses as well as potential engineering careers down the line. “The programs we have in place targeting K-12 students, teachers and counselors, as well as undergraduate and graduate students at Stony Brook, are key building blocks in constructing a diversity pathway in STEM,” said Fotis Sotiropoulos, dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
“Targeted to middle school students and teachers, this unique program will engage them in the excitement, challenge and opportunity in engineering as a field of study and potential career.” The remaining funds will go toward research studies. More than $365,000 will be used to study physics and climate regulation. Also, researchers will look into understanding radiative balance and precipitation changes in tropical weather patterns. Close to $300,000 will fund a study spearheaded by Anatoly Frenkel, which will look at electro-chemo-mechanical processes at the atomic level. According to Sotiropoulos, Frenkel’s research has the potential to transform a wide range of vitally important technologies, ranging from focusing devices in the cameras of cellular
phones to fuel injectors in automobiles. In addition, more than $300,000 will be used to fund two mathematics studies through the mathematics department. “There is no greater catalyst for scientific discovery than research universities,” said Michael Bernstein, interim president of Stony Brook University. “The grants we have received allow us to address society’s most pressing challenges. As Long Island’s sole public research institution, we remain committed to advancing scientific knowledge throughout our region and around the world.” The five grants were awarded by the National Science Foundation, an agency created by Congress in 1950, which promotes the progress of science; advances national health, prosperity and welfare; and works to secure national defense.

Suffolk police expand language access services
BY DAVID LUCES DLUCES@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Suffolk County police are trying to use digital conferencing technology to better communicate with those who are hard of hearing and speech impaired. “This announcement is about making our department more accessible and inclusive to the communities we serve,” County Executive Steve Bellone (D) said at a press conference July 31. “It is a top priority.” The department will be using the service, Language Line Insight Video Interpreting, which will allow officers to instantly connect with an interpreter who can assist in communicating with hard of hearing or speech impaired individuals in American Sign Language during a traffic stop, home visit or other emergency. “The days of having to wait for an interpreter to arrive on the scene and communicating through pen and paper — those days are over in Suffolk County,” Bellone said. Stu Cameron, chief of department, said this new addition will help close the loop in communications when officers are on the scene. Typically, if a deaf or hard of hearing person needs assistance, officers rely on pen and paper or they call a sign language interpreter to the scene or the local precinct.
This can be a lengthy process and Cameron said he feels by adding this app to the officers’ tablets, they will be more effective in assisting those individuals. “Not only will our patrol cars have this capability, but our investigative units and detectives will have this as well,” he said. “ ... We can get information very rapidly without having to go back and forth.” Geraldine Hart, Suffolk police commissioner, said more than a year ago the department began outfitting vehicles with portal tablets to give officers immediate access to language access services. “There are millions of people who communicate in sign language, making it the fourth-most used language in the U.S.,” the police commissioner said. “While we teach our recruits basic sign language and ways to communicate with deaf or hard of hearing people — we want to do more.” Similarly, last year the department launched a text 911 program in an effort to help those with hearing and/or speech impairments. The implementation of the new tablets is part of a three-year capital project, officials said. Currently, the department is in the second year of the project and has 155 tablets installed in patrol cars. Cameron said he expects by the end of next year to have all patrol cars equipped with the devices and have more than 450 tablets in use.

The Stony Brook Creek Stormwater Mitigation Project, she said, is set to be voted on by the Suffolk County Legislature this month, adding the county’s Water Quality and Land Stewardship Initiative Committee had recommended the project. Suffolk will contribute $251,526 in funding, while the Town of Brookhaven will match the other $251,526. Cartright said the project would involve four discharge pipes that carry stormwater from the Stony Brook community directly to the creek, which will be disconnected. A new drainage structure will be installed where pipes will lead to bioretention and water quality units. The goal is to minimize the direct discharge of pollutant-laden stormwater in the creek, she said. “We have taken a number of steps collectively to make sure we save our Stony Brook Creek and our Stony Brook Harbor,” Cartright said. “As we know they are very special and important to our community.”

Several family members were by his side. Hall attended Harbor Country Day School in St. James, East Woods School in Oyster Bay, The Rectory School in Pomfret, Connecticut, and graduated in 1974 from The Stony Brook School in Stony Brook. He grew up in the Village of Nissequogue with three brothers and a sister and enjoyed tennis, golf and paddle tennis as well as volunteering in the Nissequogue Fire Department and monitoring emergency communications for the
Suffolk County REACT Program. He was a seaman in the U.S. Navy from 1981 until 1983 and served in the active reserves upon discharge from active duty. In the late 1990s, Hall was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome and became a longtime participant in programs at the Clubhouse of Suffolk County, which later merged with Suffolk County United Veterans and the Mental Health Association in Suffolk to form today’s Association for Mental Health and Wellness. One of Hall’s greatest pleasures was to participate in periodic trips to Albany for NYAPRS (New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services) conferences, where he made presentations to state legislators to advocate for mental health awareness and program funding for those with mental disabilities. He was a valued member of the Clubhouse/MHAW team at these conferences and made significant contributions to their activities through the sharing of his knowledge of public policy and personal experiences with public programs. He is survived by his mother, Louise of South Setauket; two brothers, Frederick of Bellport and Stuart (Robin) of Durham, New Hampshire; a sister, Lisa H. Reed (Keith) of Three Forks, Montana; a nephew, five nieces, a great-nephew and three greatnieces. His father, Gordon, and brother, Bruce, predeceased him. He will be fondly remembered by family and friends for his exceptional memory, his love of trivia and his eagerness to converse with others. A memorial service has been planned for Saturday, Sept. 7 at 9:30 a.m. at St. James Episcopal Church, 490 Route 25A, St. James. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the Association for Mental Health and Wellness, 939 Johnson Ave., Ronkonkoma, NY 11779.

History Close at Hand
Setauket was once home to two rubber factories BY BEVERLY C. TYLER DESK@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM

sides of 25A between Apple Bank and the Gulf gas station. Then on September 12, 1898, the company closed both factories. After that the majority of workers left for other companies. The main factory burned to the ground in a great fire in 1904. After the rubber company closed, Samuel Eikov worked as a peddler and junk dealer. He had also declared to become a citizen on June 15, 1897, and took his oath of citizenship on July 29, 1910. Joseph Eikov recalled those early years. “It worked out years ago. If you lived on one side of the main road [25A], the south side, you’d go to the village [East Setauket schoolhouse at 25A and Coach Road]. The north side to Setauket green ... we went there ... I went there only one year . I remember my teacher’s name and everything — Miss Campbell. She was married to Lon Lyons, lived on Caroline Ave. I went in the first grade.” In 1911 the schools on the Setauket Village Green and the East Setauket School — still standing at Coach Road and 25A — were closed. They, as well as the South Setauket School, were replaced by a new central school on the hill above East Setauket, just east of the harbor, the Veterans of Foreign Wars post on Jones Street. It was also that year that Joseph Eikov and his seven brothers and sisters were uprooted. “I worked with my uncle [Herman] Pinnes,” Joseph Eikov relates, “We lived with them. My mother died in 1911 when we were all young. After school I had to go to work delivering orders. First I started with a sled. Put the orders on and drag it around. Then I graduated to a bicycle and after the bicycle I graduated to a horse and wagon and after the horse and wagon to a Model T Ford. I did it for quite a while. “Pinnes used to go out one day a week selling meat on the truck, a regular wagon suited for it — it had a block in there ... [He] chopped up meat. Chopped a lot of flies with ‘um [in the] summertime. They’d go out in the morning, three or four in the afternoon they’d come home.” The Liberty Rubber Company in East Setauket continued to operate, producing “thirdquality rubber goods” until sometime in the
1930s. Joseph Eikov remembered that factory operating. “I was standing out there the day that George Blydenburgh had his arm taken off. He got it caught in the mangle ... It was where you fed the rubber into it. [The machine] flattened it out, you know.” Eikov also recalled James Elberson, a store clerk who had at one time been in a more lofty position. “The best one was old man Elberson. You ever hear the name mentioned? He was a big shot. He had charge of all the rubber factories ... He sold everything from pins to automobile tires to anything you want. And I went in there one day and I wanted to buy a pair of rubbers. He says, yeah, I got ‘em. So I bought a pair of rubbers from him for 20 cents. And I says to him, how long will they last Mr. Elberson. He said, ‘Well!’, he said, ‘They ought to last until you get home if you catch a ride’ [laugh]. He was a witty ole cuss.”

“They all migrated here. My mother from Russia ... All the Jews migrated here. They were called ‘greenhorns.’ They came here with badges on. They came here to work in the rubber factory and after the factory burned down then they started to leave. That’s when [Herman] Pinnes went from kosher. They moved away gradually until there was very few left.” (Joseph Eikov in an oral history interview Oct. 4, 1984) According to Helene Gerard in her book ”And We’re Still Here: 100 Years of Small Town Jewish Life,” “In the 1870s and 1880s, Long Island reflected the rest of the country as railroads threw sparks across formerly peaceful farmlands and flat landscapes were suddenly broken by the three and four-story factory buildings of small industry. These companies advertised for help in New York’s foreign language newspapers, emphasizing clean air and healthy living conditions. Recruiters also went to Ellis Island, bringing families directly to factory towns by train or steamship. Thus, more than 200 Jewish families arrived on the East End, creating proportionately sizable Jewish communities in the small villages.” According to Wayne L. Pines in his book, “The Sermons of Jerome Martin Pines,” Dora Pinnes, who had immigrated to America from Kopyl, Russia, came to Setauket, “to visit her brothers Herman and Nathan, and met Samuel Eikov, whom she married.” Samuel and Dora both worked in the rubber factory until it closed. According to research done by Marc Sterns, the rubber company began in Setauket in the early 1870s. By 1878 it was producing 1,200 pairs of shoes and 1,800 boots per day. Many of the early workers were of Irish and German descent. By the mid 1880s, the Setauket factory was the largest factory on Long Island, employing 125 workers. By 1887 there were 500 workers — with the majority being Jews of Russian descent. Samuel Golden, who was born in Setauket in 1898 told Helene Gerard, “My father got a job in the rubber factory here in Setauket in 1886. He was a cutter. He would lay the last of a shoe and with a very sharp knife that he had, he would cut this last out, a whole pile of them at one time. These were for overshoes, rubbers. It was piecework. He courted my mother by leaving some at her spot every morning. The factory had their own scrip [money] and the men who ran the two general stores around here, they used to take this scrip for all their goods. And the company owned housing. This was a real company town.” In 1894, a second factory was built in East Setauket just west of Shore Road. This eventually became known as the Liberty Rubber Company. In 1895 there was a fire that damaged the main factory on the area called Chicken Hill along both
Joseph Eikov was born in Setauket March 14, 1903. He was the fourth of eight children born to Samuel and Dora (Pinnes) Eikov. Samuel Eikov was born in Poland March 15, 1873. He came to America by way of Hamburg, Germany, arriving at the port of New York on August 12, 1895. He came to Setauket to work in the L.B. Smith Company Rubber Factory. Joseph (Jess) Eikov enjoyed talking about Setauket, about people and about the old days. He was always enthusiastic about the students he knew over the years because of his career as a school bus driver and contractor for 39 years. His was the first school bus service in Setauket. “Oh, sure [I enjoyed bus driving]! We had different kids than we have today ... All I had to do if a kid was a little bad was to say I’d call his father. I knew everybody in town. All I’d do is call up the mother and father. They’d say, don’t you worry about anything, we’ll take care of him tonight — and I never had any more trouble. They were good kids.” Stories about the men and women who lived and worked in the Setauket rubber factories in the second half of the 19th century are featured in the Three Village Historical Society History Center’s exhibit Chicken Hill: A Community Lost to Time. The history center, which also includes the exhibit SPIES! How a Group of Long Island Patriots Win the Revolution, is open on Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. Beverly C. Tyler is Three Village Historical Society historian and author of books available from the society at 93 North Country Road, Setauket. For more information, call 631-7513730 or visit www.tvhs.org.

Letters to the Editor
Americans feel sorrow and fear whenever we learn that a gunmen carrying a high-powered firearm has committed a mass shooting. In one week, three shootings occurred in three separate states. While none of them took place on Long Island or even New York, the tragedy still hits home. The situation is for too long unbearable and action is overdue. We are too often reminded that we aren’t safe whether we are at work, school, a movie theater, a store, nightclub, a concert or a festival. After the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, in 2018 many school districts on Long Island began contemplating whether or not to have armed guards, while systematically upgrading security in their buildings. Children coming back to school in the Comsewogue School District, for example, will walk through vestibules lined with bullet resistant glass. One editor was talking about an upcoming garlic festival with a group of friends the other day when one shuddered and said, “Please, don’t go to any garlic festivals,” all in relation to a shooting at a garlic festival in Gilroy, California, July 28. After the recent tragedies, with one shooter robbing the lives of 22 in El Paso, Texas, and another killer murdering nine in Dayton, Ohio, with dozens injured in both cities, many have said that we need to remember these events and how we feel when we vote in 2020. Why wait? Our local legislators, even members of our boards of education, make decisions that affect our everyday lives. They can write stricter laws when it comes to purchasing and owning guns, allocate funding to patients seeking mental health care or help schools with grants for security. Make sure they are making the decisions you want them to. Even though the 2019 elections involve local municipalities and not federal offices, every legislator can affect laws that protect our lives and well-being. This week’s headlines made many Americans feel helpless. Police responded to the Dayton shooting in 30 seconds since the first round left the gunman’s chamber. In that time, nine people were dead. The suspect used a 100-round magazine and a semi-automatic rifle. It took five times as long to write this paragraph as it took a murderer to kill nine people. But there’s something all of us can do. We can vote for those who represent our values. This year and next, the time is now to look deep inside our hearts and ask what we feel is the best route to stop the violence. Then research the candidates who are running for office to see where they stand. And even before election day, call your local representatives and tell them something must be done now, not after election day. Every time you vote for a candidate, your ballot is a show of confidence to continue in the political realm. Today’s member of town council can be tomorrow’s county or state legislator or next year’s congressional leader. Nov. 5, Election Day, will be here before you know it. The time is now to start doing the footwork and for everybody to vote. Our editorial staff will soon be hosting political debates to prepare for our election issue. We’re not waiting until 2020 to ask the candidates tough questions and neither should our readers.
In response to a recent letter to the editor, in which all President Donald Trump [R] supporters were labeled “racists,” the buzzword which is used when there is nothing else. If you disagree with someone’s politics or if you don’t like them for any reason, they resort to this word and as a result of using “racism” so carelessly, it no longer holds the serious gravity it deserves. Now that the Mueller Report has been debunked and Mueller was sadly used and exposed as a mere figurehead for a team of partisan Democrat lawyers, the Dems have caught the racist buzzword and the media is hyping it up. In Saul Alinsky’s book, “Rules for Radicals,” rule No. 7 states: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Don’t become ‘old news.’” “Racists” is an old tactic that has been dragging on for years. Speaking of old news, we have four freshmen in Congress reincarnating “women of color,” (racist phrase), continued anti-Semitic remarks and hatred of Israel, white men being evil and they inducted a new member into the “racist club” ... Nancy Pelosi (Bush, Romney, Reagan are old members.) Clearly, racism is a human problem and our history reveals that blacks definitely suffered disproportionate

mistreatment. However, racism is without a primary color. Truth is key to any helpful healing discussion and what is often unknown to many is whites were not the exclusive slave owners or blacks the sole victims. There are several important things we should know about slavery and racism. 1. In 1621, Anthony Johnson went to court and won to be able to hold his black slaves in lifetime bondage. Anthony was a black man, America’s first slaveholder. 2. Carter Woodson, a famous black historian, conducted research in the 1800s and discovered black-on-black slavery was not uncommon and existed in both the North and South. 3. Native American tribes actively participated as black slave owners. 4. In the 16th to 18th centuries, Muslims took some 1.25 million slaves, both black and white (emphasis on enslaving Christians). 5. At the beginning of the Civil War, only 8 percent of Americans owned slaves, which included white, black, Native American and other slave owners, not just whites (according to “This Precarious Moment” by David Barton). The words “racist, sexist, Republican” are virtually interchangeable with many,
but when you research American history it reveals that the Republican Party began a coalition and their first platform in 1856 promised to defeat “slavery and polygamy.” They also passed the 13th (abolished slavery), 14th (made Afro-Americans citizens), 15th (the right to vote) amendments and, yes ladies, in 1920, after 52 years of Democratic “resistance,” the Republicans passed the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote. In conclusion, Trump is not a racist for fixing the “border crisis.” It’s common sense that open borders and a welfare state cannot co-exist. We all have locks on our doors; some homes have gates and security systems to keep our families safe. Why not for our country? The most important job of our government is to keep the American citizen safe and Trump is doing it in spite of the resistance. There is an old adage with wisdom, “Get your own house in order first.” Shouldn’t there be concern and attention directed toward having every veteran in a home and not one American child going to bed hungry. Go USA. Carol Florio Lisa Pius Old Field
Response to ‘The two faces of America’ In my household, after reading your opinion piece “The two faces of America in 2019” in the July 25 edition, we discussed not buying your paper ever again. Why? Are there really two faces of America or is there a schism between the power of politics and the politics of power? A conundrum that is as old as time, is the office holder who wields the power of prime import or are the duties of those offices in fact the real treasure? So too must it be said of opinion, that there is a deep schism between the power of the press and the power that the press wields. I wish you to consider your intentions in referring to the processing of people crossing the border illegally, who then seek asylum under our current asylum statutes. You call our facilities American concentration camps. You are guilty of
engaging in a misuse of power, for though you have the right to your opinion, you have transgressed as editor of your paper. My term for what your paper is constantly engaged in is “journalistic tangentialism,” untruths foisted upon a constituent, or a reader, by using one historical fact to categorize and define a current event. The obfuscation by attempting to impute definition, in my opinion, is the problem that your industry and our politicians need to constantly wrestle with so as to maintain the value of our treasured elected offices, the treasure of a free press. To manipulate is not your charge; your duty is far greater, to seek the causes and to direct ideas toward appropriate changes. Why not look at the politicians who created this dilemma, why not ask why have these officeholders chosen these paths
to conflict and why they then sit and do nothing to resolve the conditions that they have created? Twenty-four years before the moon walk, my uncles were in a Nazi concentration camp. They did not choose to be in that camp in search of asylum. They only survived because they were young slave labor. The rest of my family were gassed or executed by machine gun, buried in pits with the murdered millions of Nazi concentration camp dead. Jewish children were separated from their parents with a bullet. Don’t use journalistic tangentialism to defame my dead, or defame our country. Show the paths to the cause of the problem. Show the path to the solution. Michael Sheinkopf Port Jefferson

NRA should fund gun control research
have an obvious question for the National Riﬂe Association: Why ﬁght gun control? Yeah, yeah, I get it. You and many others don’t want a repeal of the Second Amendment, which was written well before the creation of assault weapons that enabled deranged Americans to kill their fellow citizens at an unfathomable rate. But don’t gun manufacturers D. None want gun conof the above trol? After all, wouldn’t it be BY DANIEL DUNAIEF better to produce a product that stayed out of the wrong hands? Let’s take a look at the difference between gun manufacturers and car manufacturers. On the one hand, you have companies producing
vehicles where safety is a top priority. In addition to meeting the stringent requirements of the law, some car manufacturers add features like a way to block text or phone signals from getting into a car while someone is driving. Wow, what a concept. The car manufacturers don’t make the phones. People have died doing all kinds of activities with their phones, taking selﬁes in dangerous locations and not paying attention to their environment in general because they are so focused on their phones. And yet, some of these car manufacturers are protecting drivers from their own unsafe impulses that could harm them and others — sounds familiar? — by preventing the dangerous combination of phone use and driving. If we buy into the notion that “guns don’t kill people, people kill people,” shouldn’t gun manufacturers make an effort to ﬁnd out which people are more likely to kill other people, and not sell these destructive weapons to them? In 1996, three years before the Columbine, Colorado, shooting became one of the ﬁrst in
what has now become a painful and familiar collection of mass murders in locations ranging from schools to houses of worship to malls during back-to-school sales, Congress passed a budget that included the Dickey Amendment, named after U.S. Rep. Jay Dickey (R-Arkansas). That amendment prevented the government from funding research that might lead to the conclusion that gun control was necessary. Say what? Yeah, but, in light of recent tragedies, a law was passed last year clarifying that the Centers for Disease Control can actually fund research about guns. And, yet, the CDC still can’t lead to any advocacy for gun control. If guns make most people safer, why don’t gun manufacturers want to know which people, speciﬁcally, shouldn’t have a gun? The idea of background checks and red ﬂags are all ﬁne, but they may not be sufﬁcient. If a virus broke out anywhere in the country that threatened to kill a room full of people in minutes, we would want the CDC not only to understand how to treat those who might have that virus immediately, but also to provide
warning signs to others about any symptoms that might lead to an outbreak of that virus. The CDC is way behind in its research in part because that 1996 amendment effectively dampened any effort to conduct the kind of studies that would lead to a greater understanding of gun violence. Sure, the Federal Bureau of Investigation could and should ﬁnd people who might be a threat to society. With the help of the CDC, the FBI might have a better idea of where to look. The well-funded NRA, however, would do itself — and society — a huge favor if it put its considerable ﬁnancial muscle behind an independent effort to understand how to recognize those people who shouldn’t have any kind of gun, let alone an assault riﬂe capable of mass murder in a minute. The NRA doesn’t even need to call it gun control, just ﬁrearms research. We the people may have a right to own guns, but we also have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Wouldn’t gun control research, supported by the NRA, ensure that we could live our lives without fear of the wrong people owning the wrong guns?
presented to the reader in an attractive format that informed and enriched the community. In the process, the news organization was also enriched, and there were newspapers everywhere. The biggest challenge was beating competitors to the “scoop” and gaining the greater market share of advertisers. Today that simple business plan seems like a fairy tale. According to data in a special section of The New York Times on Sunday, “Over the last 15 years, about 2100 local newspapers — or roughly a quarter of all local newsrooms — have either merged with a competitor or ceased printing … About 6800 local newspapers continue to operate across the country, but many are shells of their former selves, with pared down staffs and coverage areas. About half of the remaining local papers are in small and rural communities, and the vast majority distribute fewer than 15,000 copies of each edition.” I could go on with the statistics, but here’s the point: If we don’t embrace change, we get left behind. So it is that we at Times Beacon Record Newspapers have become TBR News Media, with the addition of a website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube platforms to accommodate the various demands for news and advertising.
After all, we work for our customers and we must offer them what they want and need. By the same token, while maintaining those platforms has increased our costs, the revenue they generate is minimal. Further worsening the newspaper situation is the demise of the traditional momand-pop retail stores, the previous backbone of so many communities and community newspapers. So we have changed, as the surviving retailers have changed. We, and they, are now building events into our offerings, much as we used to publish supplements to target speciﬁc subjects and advertising niches for our papers. Retailing now includes some aspect of entertainment with their event planning, and publishing companies, whether in print or digital, must also provide entertaining events. Fortunately for us at TBR, we can make this ﬁt with our mission statement to give back to the community, and indeed to endeavor to strengthen the sense of community where we publish. Since our ﬁrst year in existence, over 43 years ago, we have held the Man and Woman of the Year event at the Three Village Inn, with the ﬁnancial help of Stony Brook University and the Lessings, at which we have saluted those who go the extra mile
offering their products, services or time to their neighbors in their hometowns. For the last two years, we have produced and directed ﬁlms with authentic Revolutionary War narrative at Stony Brook’s Staller Center to share pride in our Long Island history, explaining who we were at the dawn of our country and how we got here. Coming next on the events list is Cooks, Books and Corks, a community-enriching program that features scrumptious food from some of our local restaurants at stations around the perimeter of a room at the Bates House ﬁlled with local authors and their books. We started this last year, and it was such a success that both restaurateurs and authors offered themselves on the spot for the next such gathering. They said they liked “the high tone.” Therefore, the Second Annual Cooks, Books and Corks will take place in the same bucolic location, in Setauket, on Tuesday evening, Sept. 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. The charge is $50 per person, and the money raised will go toward subsidizing the pay of a journalism intern next summer. Please mark your calendars and join neighbors and friends at this event to share food for both body and mind.
A personal invitation from the publisher for Sept. 24
he world has changed for all of us since we entered the 21st century. While our computers didn’t blow up as the millennium turned, the horriﬁc attacks on 9/11 forever, it seems, altered our sense of safety in our country and elsewhere on the globe. The arrival of the internet on desktop computers, the proliferation of cellphones, the rise of social media — they have upended the architecture of our lives. Change has been no less dramatic in our work lives. For those of us in the news business, the basic business model is disappearing.

Health Information from Local Health Care Professionals
Frank Bonura, MD, FACOG, NCMP, CCD Director of Menopausal Health and Osteoporosis Programs St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center Oﬃce Location: St. Catherine of Siena Medical Oﬃce Building, 48 Route 25A, Suite 306, Smithtown, NY 11787
Why was the menopausal health program established at Siena Women’s Health?
Who would be a good candidate for menopausal and osteoporosis treatments in your practice?
A. Younger generations can no longer aﬀord the rising prices of homes and taxes in our area. So, in the past 10 to 15 years, our population has skewed toward an older demographic. Approximately 385,000 women living in the Suﬀolk County community are in the menopausal transition or menopause. A menopausal woman’s medical needs are diﬀerent from those of younger women. For the past decade, I have been working to establish a program that addresses the needs of those women.
A. We provide treatment options for women who experience hot ﬂashes and night sweats, which can cause insomnia, irritability and mood swings that aﬀect quality of life. Additionally, we address the genitourinary syndrome of menopause, which consists of anatomical changes of the external genitalia, lower urinary tract and vagina. Symptoms associated with genitourinary syndrome include vaginal dryness, discharge, burning and painful intercourse. These symptoms can cause sexual dysfunction, urinary urgency and frequency, urinary stress incontinence, overactive bladder, and frequent urinary tract infections. We also oﬀer screenings, workup and treatment for women who have osteoporosis.
What role does your team play? A. We have specialists in various ﬁelds of medicine and surgery in our program who address the medical and surgical complications of menopause. Their areas of expertise include diabetes, cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal problems, breast cancer, neurological disease, osteoporosis and weight management.
What types of services do you oﬀer? A. In my practice, I oﬀer menopausal and osteoporosis consultation, which includes DXA for osteoporosis screening, gynecological care, ultrasound, urodynamics and pelvic ﬂoor muscle exercises with biofeedback therapy.
