History Close at Hand
Campers learn about spies at the historical society Fifteen summer camp students ranging in age from 11 to 13, from Campus Camps in Oakdale, under the direction of Ashleigh Frezza, director, came to Setauket for a half-day spy school at the Three Village Historical Society’s history center. The students were ready to discover the story of the Revolutionary War Culper Spy Ring and to explore how the ring operated during the British occupation of Long Island and Manhattan. The spy school program was designed to introduce students to each of the five main spies in the spy ring and how they operated between 1778 and 1783. Following a short
PowerPoint presentation on the Culper Spy Ring, the students were divided into three groups. Each group of five students, together with an education leader, were provided with specific details of the operation of the spy ring. They studied the information until they understood the ring and were able to write about it and make presentations to the entire camp group at the end of the session. The first group learned about each of the five principal members of the spy ring: Benjamin Tallmadge, Abraham Woodhull, Robert Townsend, Austin Roe and Caleb Brewster as well as the most important female who aided the ring, Anna Smith Strong. They also dressed in some of the clothing of the period and learned about a number of everyday items used and enjoyed by Long Islanders. When the entire camp met, each student, portraying a specific member of the spy ring, gave clues to the students in the other groups to see how long it would take to discover their identity. The second group provided information about five various codes used during the Revolutionary War period, and the other students had to decipher a simple message presented by each student. “They loved the codes and wanted more samples to decode,” said Donna Smith, TVHS education director. “I think they appreciated how long it might take to write a message in code and even to decode some of them.” The third group working with three different invisible ink liquids — lemon juice, milk and a solution of baking soda — presented their hypnosis as to which would prove to be the most effective invisible ink and their individual

findings when they finished the experiment. “I really enjoyed seeing how they were able to make predictions and were genuinely surprised when they realized how different the results were,” said Lindsey Steward, spy school leader. Following the presentations, the students and their leaders went on a field trip to the Setauket Presbyterian Church graveyard and the Setauket Village Green. Here the students learned about conditions in Setauket and the Town of Brook haven during the Revolutionary War. They explored part of the cemetery with special
emphasis on the grave of Abraham Woodhull and the other Revolutionary War-era family sections that make up the earliest part of the graveyard. As they were leaving, I asked one student what she liked best about the day. “I liked the trip to the cemetery, I liked everything,” the student said.

Volleyball tournament to raise funds for firefighter’s memorial foundation BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM
Local firefighters are training to serve up some fun and to help members of firehouses around the country. On Aug. 23, a 4-on-4 volleyball tournament will be held at the Holiday Inn Express Stony Brook with fire departments competing to win and raise money for the Lt. Joseph P. DiBernardo Memorial Foundation. The money raised will help to buy “bailout systems” for fire departments who lack the vital equipment. The personal escape kits are used when rescue workers find themselves in fires that are difficult to escape, like when they are a few floors up, a building collapses or there is a backdraft. Tanya Lee, the hotel’s director of sales and marketing, said she came up with the idea for the fundraiser when DiBernardo’s father, Joseph DiBernardo Sr., stopped by the hotel to book a workshop. Lee, who is a volunteer with the Centereach Fire Department along with her son, said she was looking for a way the hotel could give back to the community and saw DiBernardo’s visit as a sign. She said she discovered while talking to him that many fire departments in the country don’t have the funds to pay for bailout systems and the training required to use them, which together can cost up to $1,000 per firefighter depending on the manufacturer. “It was kind of like that ‘Aha’ moment,” Lee said. “Like he walked right in when I was looking to do something for the community.” DiBernardo Jr., who was a volunteer with the Setauket Fire Department, was one of three New York City Fire Department firefighters injured during a tenement fire in the Bronx in 2005. Three firefighters also died in the blaze, and the tragedy was called “Black Sunday.” During the fire, DiBernardo Jr. helped his fellow firefighter Jeff Cool escape the building using a rope and then secured it to a child safety guard to lower himself from a window. The rope broke, and DiBernardo Jr. fell four stories, breaking practically every bone from his waist down and shattering both feet. During his recovery in the hospital, he suffered respiratory arrest and developed pneumonia. While DiBernardo retired as a firefighter due to his injuries, he traveled the country and assisted in safety trainings for firefighters despite the physical pain he continued to suffer, according to his father. In 2011, the firefighter died from the injuries he sustained in the 2005 Bronx fire. In 2013, the DiBernardo family, members of the Setauket Fire Department and Cool established the foundation. “We decided to [start] the foundation, so no other firefighter would have to die due to lack of personal safety ropes,” DiBernardo Sr. said. Lee said the 4-on-4 tournament will consist
of eight teams that will compete in a 15-point game until one team is left standing. For teams that are eliminated earlier in the tournament and for spectators, there will be a Cornhole toss, raffles, food and beverages. Attendees who stay overnight at the hotel will also receive a discount on their room. “I just want them to feel good about helping their brothers, whether they’re a fire department in Schenectady or they’re a fire department here, they’re all brothers,” Lee said. So far there are five teams consisting of firefighters set to participate — FDNY, Hicksville, Jericho, Selden and Centereach. Kevin Yoos, fire commissioner with the Setauket Fire District and vice president of the foundation, said volunteers in Setauket are currently organizing a team. Lee said there will also be a team consisting of Gold Coast Bank employees. The tournament was one that John Tsunis, the owner of Holiday Inn Express Stony Brook, said he was on board from the moment he heard about it. The hotel donated $1,000 to the tournament, and it will be awarded to the winning team, according to the hotel owner. Tsunis, who is also CEO and chairman of Gold Coast Bank, said he believes in giving back to the community the hotel serves. “We’re not big hotels in Las Vegas or international banks in New York City,” Tsunis said. “We’re neighbors and friends, and we work together, and we live together.” DiBernardo Sr., who is a retired FDNY firefighter, said his son wanted to fight fires since he was a kid. He would play with fire trucks as a child, and when he was a bit older, would visit his father at work at his station house in Brooklyn. When he was 18, DiBernardo Jr. became a fire alarm dispatcher on Long Island, and the next year he became a volunteer with the Setauket Fire Department, according to his father. During his tenure with the department, he became a lieutenant and captain. In 1993, DiBernardo Jr. became an FDNY fire alarm dispatcher, and in 1995, his dream of becoming a firefighter in the city was achieved. “That’s what he always wanted,” the father said. “It’s nice to see your son achieve his dreams.” The father said he was touched when he heard about the volleyball tournament and the $1,000 donation. “Someone would care in the community to do something for us like that … it’s fantastic,” he said. The Holiday Inn Express Stony Brook is located at 3131 Nesconset Highway, Stony Brook. Entry donation is $20 for players and spectators and includes food and beverages. For more details about the event, contact Tanya Lee at 631-4718000. Or visit www.facebook.com/HIExpressSB/ for a link to sign up. For more information on the Lt. Joseph P. DiBernardo Memorial Foundation, visit www.joeydfoundation.org.

Bailout systems explained BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM Many firefighters across the country are without a piece of equipment that could save their lives if caught in a fire that is burning out of control, especially if they are in a structure with more than one floor. Kevin Yoos, a fire commissioner with Setauket Fire District and vice president of the Lt. Joseph P. DiBernardo Memorial Foundation, said fire departments across the country in municipalities with small tax bases have trouble securing the funds to purchase bailout systems. The system includes a rope approximately 40 to 50 feet long with a descendant-control device and a deploy hook carried in a stow bag, according to Yoos. Firefighters have a harness they wear on their gear and the system can be attached to it. While the rope can be tied to an object, the hook can also be attached to a window ledge or a similar item to escape flames. “The idea behind it is that the descendant device will stop you from free falling,” Yoos said. “You actually have to pull on it or do some sort of adjustment to lower yourself down once you get outside of the window.” Joseph DiBernardo Sr., president of the foundation, said the bailout systems and necessary training classes combined could cost between $850 and $1,000 per firefighter depending on the manufacturer. Since 2012, New York State law requires that firefighters have the systems and show competence and proficiency in using them,
according to Yoos, who is also a New York City Fire Department firefighter. This is accomplished with training classes. In the Setauket Fire District, volunteer firefighters in the past have received training outside at the Nicolls Road firehouse, but in the future, rescue workers will be able to also train inside at the Main Street firehouse, where renovations to the building have included an apparatus bay with a bailout window for volunteers to practice the mandated drills. The fire commissioner said to his knowledge no firefighter in Setauket has had to use his or her bailout system, even though he knows of those in New York City who have. Yoos said over the years fires have picked up steam faster due to plastics and other items in homes, so it’s important for rescue workers to have the means to escape quickly. “A fire room can flashover in less than four minutes, usually about 3½ minutes, where in the 1970s that took about 29, 30 minutes,” Yoos said. “The evolution of the stuff that we have — everything we have is synthetic, plastics — it’s basically gasoline. And once that starts burning, the whole room can be involved in a fire very fast. So, firefighters have less time to make those decisions on how to get out.” The fire commissioner said the goal of the foundation is to ensure every firehouse in the country has a bailout system for every firefighter. “If you don’t have a system, and you can’t save yourself, you can’t go in and rescue other people,” he said.

Opioid symposium posits ethical questions on crisis Stony Brook University hosts opioid forum featuring health care community BY KYLE BARR KYLE@TBRNEWSMEDIA.COM
The opioid crisis has reached its tendrils out to touch every person in the U.S., and the doctors who prescribe those opioids for pain relief see the ethical dilemma; whether they should treat their patients’ pain or not out of concerns of misuse. At an opioid ethics symposium hosted at Stony Brook University Aug. 3, Dr. Kevin Zacharoff, an expert in pain medicine and a sitting member of the Anesthetic and Analgesic Drug Products Advisory Committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, said a number of doctors no longer prescribe opioids for pain management because of how quickly the repercussions of misuse will come down on them. “All the regulatory agencies are coming down and tightening the screws of people in primary care, and people in primary care are saying ‘I wash my hands of it,’” Zacharoff said. “This is all falling on the shoulders of health care providers — when people dying from heroin and fentanyl has overtaken pain medication.” The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that nationally 116 people a day died from opioid-related drug overdoses in 2016. A U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report released in 2016 said that the rate of death from drug overdoses has increased 137 percent and a 200 percent increase in the rate of opioid overdose deaths from 2000 to 2014.
Medical professionals, above, participate in an opioid ethics symposium at Stony Brook University Aug. 3. Dr. Kevin Zacharoff, below, delivered the keynote speech and discussed the effects of regulatory agencies on addiction.
CDC data shows that regulations on prescription opioids restrained the rise of overdose deaths involving legal drugs, but since 2011 there has been a spike in the number of deaths caused by illicit drugs such as heroin and other painkillers including fentanyl. Zacharoff said he fears that these regulations on opioid prescribing pushes stable patients who could have been using opioids to treat long-term pain into using illicit drugs. “Prescription drug monitoring programs have made a positive impact, but they have also had a negative impact on health care providers, because it takes a lot of time and energy,” Zacharoff said. “Should we sacrifice our care for patients for the sake of people using the substances illicitly?” For the past several years federal agencies, as well as state governments, have started to restrict the number of opioids available for pharmacies as well as scrutinizing how doctors prescribe that medication. A large number of federal agencies, such as the CDC, the FDA, the Drug Enforcement Administration, just to name a few, are involved in opioid research and regulations. This is on top of state prescription drug monitoring programs, which make doctors fill out forms on patients, saying whether they informed them of the dangers of the drugs and whether they asked if there was a person in the house with a history of addiction. In April, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the DEA would propose setting more limits on the numbers of opioids that a drug manufacturer could produce. Prescribing doctors said they have seen multiple problems

On Aug. 7, Suffolk County Police Department officers, as well as members of the military and local fire departments, took time out to spend an evening with residents in the communities they serve. National Night Out events took place in various locations in Suffolk County including Centereach Pool Complex in Brookhaven, hosted by the 6th Precinct, and in the Commack Target parking lot, organized by the 4th Precinct. The free events included a chance to meet and chat with law enforcement officers, rescue workers and representatives from the different branches of the military. During the evening, attendees could play games, learn how to perform CPR, sit in an impaired driver simulator device, rock climb and more.
The Flashing Fingers Signing Club also performed in Centereach. “The night is about being able to humanize the people behind the uniform,” said William Zieman, 6th Precinct community liaison officer at the Centereach event. “It’s also about connecting residents with all the positive resources in the community and at the same time having the opportunity to interact with law enforcement in a positive way.” The Squillance family of Medford attended the event to show support for the 6th Precinct, including officers that came to their rescue recently. “This Suffolk police are a great group of people,” Steve Squillance said. “They were there when my son had a seizure in our pool at home, and Officer [William] Zieman and Officer [Casey] Berry even came to our house to teach my kids about pool safety.” Additional reporting by Anthony Petriello

Regulate recreational pot
Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has put New York on a path to become the 10th state in the United States to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. We’re in favor of jumping on the national movement, so long as it’s done with both eyes wide open. On Aug. 2, Cuomo announced that he was forming a group of 20 experts specializing in public health, safety and economics to draft legislation to regulate the recreational use of marijuana by adults. The bill would go before the state Legislature in January 2019. Laws surrounding marijuana have been gradually shifting since California legalized its medical use in 1996. A number of scientific studies have shown the drug may be beneficial for those suffering from chronic pain, seizures and mental impairments. New York adopted medical marijuana laws in July 2014. The state’s foray into opening the medical marijuana market has been closely regulated. Patients need to be formally diagnosed by a licensed medical practitioner, have it prescribed, register with the state and carry an identification card. The state has limited the number of dispensaries, making for news whenever a site opens. Moving toward decriminalizing recreational use of pot — as its more commonly called — could provide several benefits. Colorado, one of the first states to allow smoking marijuana in 2012, saw an immediate economic boom. It saw a vast spike in tourism, something unlikely to repeat here in New York, but reports show benefits from taxing and regulating what was once an underground market. The Gazette, a Colorado Springs newspaper, reported in July that studies show there’s been an increase in the number of adults who are indulging in marijuana, while the number of high school and middle school students who report testing it out has held steady at or below the national average. Simply put, if a teen was tempted to try it — marijuana’s legality wasn’t stopping them. New York approving legislation allowing for the drug’s recreational use — treating it similarly to alcohol — could open up avenues for regulations of an otherwise black market turning it into a resource to provide tax revenue for the state. The funds would arguably benefit school districts and could be used to help close state budgetary shortfalls while helping offset any further tax hikes. The drafted bill should outline restrictions on smoking up more in line with shifting socially acceptable drugs, like alcohol. We agree age restrictions, limitations on appropriate places and enforcement against drugged driving need to be on the books. The issue becomes, can marijuana be safely, legally and responsibly used? State legislators need to create a carefully crafted, well-thought out bill that sets parameters to allow for regulation of what’s already happening. Each week, TBR News Media reporters see countless incidents of people being arrested for possessing or smoking marijuana — without committing other criminal behavior. Regulate it, create a market and be flexible to amending the laws when — not if — loopholes emerge. It’s time to refocus our law enforcement’s efforts on cracking down on Long Island’s illegal heroin and opioid problems, which can and do result in fatal overdoses and places stress on our health care system.

Letters to the editor Something is wrong, we must speak up What do you do when everything within says the policies and statements coming from the White House are unjust, inhumane and ultimately un-American? You feel it in your bones: Something is wrong, morally wrong. Because when immigrant children are taken from their parents and placed in cages, that is immoral. When an entire people is stereotyped as “criminals and rapists,” that is immoral. When politicians beholden to the NRA protect guns over students, when the wealthy get big tax breaks while the poor face losing food stamps, when environmental regulations are stripped so greedy corporations can increase profits, all of that is immoral. And when the president makes enemies of our allies and allies of our enemies, siding with a brutal human rights-abusing dictator over U.S. intelligence communities, it is not only immoral but treasonous, even
if our economy is humming along, and it’s tempting to turn a deaf ear to the cries of people suffering the consequences of immoral decisions. Something is terribly wrong. That’s why I felt compelled to shout in protest, “Stop the hate talk!” and “We are all Americans!” during Congressman Lee Zeldin’s June 28 campaign rally after hearing speakers ridicule Americans with whom they disagreed. I’d do it again because I’m sick over the direction in which our country is moving and am convinced we must use every platform available to appeal to Trump die-hards like Zeldin to turn back this terrible tide. We need acts of nonviolent moral resistance, planned or unplanned, alone or with others. We need to exercise our God-given, Constitution-affirming inalienable right to protest because as a friend once said, the opposite of depression is expression and
expressing your outrage, even in a small way, is far better than staying depressed. I was thrown out of Zeldin’s campaign event along with two newspaper reporters with visible press credentials. Could it be that in Smithtown — pegged “Zeldin country” by the town supervisor during that same rally — the Trumpian refrain of the press is “the enemy of the people,” despite its ugly history, is frighteningly embraced? Something is terribly wrong, and it may take all of us — white, black, brown, left, right, Christian, Muslim, Jew, gay, straight, rich and poor — to come together and express ourselves before our democracy goes over the cliff that leaders like Trump and Zeldin have brought us to. Susan Perretti East Setauket (Editor’s note: This letter is in response to Jim Soviero’s July 26 letter, “Lists, contradictions, credibility.”)
President’s actions are a betrayal On July 16, millions of patriotic Americans watched in horror as Donald Trump refused to defend our democracy against Russian president Vladimir Putin. It was a shocking display of capitulation to the Russian government, and a betrayal of our nation’s law enforcement and intelligence agencies by an American president, the likes of which our nation has never seen. It is unanimously agreed upon by our intelligence community that the Russian government interfered in our 2016 election. Rather than using the diplomatic and economic tools available to him, President Trump has taken Vladimir Putin at his word, which endangers our free and fair elections of the future. He has refused to hold Putin accountable for the poisoning and death of a British citizen, the annex-
ation of Crimea and the propping up of the Assad regime, which has greatly contributed to the humanitarian refugee crisis. Instead, he has chosen to reward Russia, a globally bad actor, with our trust, while denigrating and alienating NATO, our trade partners and allies. The reaction from our Republicancontrolled Congress has been characteristically complicit. Our legislative branch has largely refused to condemn this president’s behavior, including our own congressman, Lee Zeldin, who merely said that “Russia must stay thousands of miles away from American elections,” without addressing Trump’s words and actions. In a situation where the executive branch refuses to stand for Americans, it is imperative that Congress, as a coequal branch of government,
does so. Zeldin does not serve as a check and balance on the Trump presidency; he has been little more than a cheerleader for this administration. This breach of trust by our executive branch and lack of reaction of our Republican-controlled legislative branch are strategic and moral surrenders of our nation’s founding principles. It is past time for citizens of all political affiliations to stand up against this, and elect leaders who defend our freedoms. This November, I look forward to casting my ballot for a Congress that will not be complicit, which is why I will be voting for Perry Gershon, a Democrat, and working to get Trump cheerleader Zeldin out of office. Shoshana Hershkowitz South Setauket
Affordable senior housing needed The Village Times Herald reported in the July 26 edition [“Planning board ready to make decision on South Setauket rentals”] that the Town of Brookhaven is in the final stages of deciding on allowing a retirement community to be constructed on part of the Heatherwood golf course at Arrowhead Lane, where I have spent some pleasant hours. Long Island certainly needs housing
attractive to seniors, with competitive rents based on income and not market value. Upstate New York and Connecticut are already offering such communities, very similar to Fairfield Knolls, where I live, for $800 to $1,000 a month for one- and two-bedroom apartments. The opposition — coming from the courageously challenged — focused on traffic rather than the need for affordable senior
housing. Just own it — you are for it but just not here. Studies show that the county has an aging population that is increasingly choosing to move somewhere else in the U.S., and more than 11,000 residents left Suffolk County in 2016. Our leaders need to step up, before our love affair with Long Island gets too exorbitant. Jerry Reynolds Coram

OPINION The next generation’s attitude to driving
s driving uninspiring for the next generation? My daughter recently got her license and my son is attending driver’s education classes so he can join his sister behind the wheel. This should be cause for celebration for them, right? Nope. When I ask my daughter if she wants to drive somewhere, she often shrugs and says, “Nah, that’s D. None OK, you can drive.” of the above I recently took BY DANIEL DUNAIEF a long drive with my son, where I pointed out the magniﬁcent trees along the side of the road and where I couldn’t help noticing the license plates of cars
from Alaska, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and Oregon, just to name a few. “Dad,” my son interjected, after the pitch of my voice rose when I saw the one from Alaska, “you really like license plates.” No, he doesn’t get it, just as I don’t get his generation. When I got my license, I couldn’t wait to visit my friends, to go to the movies, to drive to West Meadow Beach where I had spent so much of my time walking, jogging or biking. Driving meant I no longer had to count the curves until I was at the beach. I could also exhaust myself in the waves and run out to the end of the magniﬁcent sandbar, which seemed to stretch halfway to Connecticut, without worrying about leaving the beach before sunset so I could get home in the light. I could also offer to pick up my friends. I could drive to their houses, knock on their doors, show off my license to their parents and then laugh my way into the car with a friend, who would turn on the radio to music. It wasn’t
the boring nonstop news stations that my parents listened to — and which I now play in the car when I’m alone. I could drive to The Good Steer in Lake Grove and meet someone for a burger and a mountain of onion rings. I could make the car as hot or cold as I wanted. A driver’s license meant independence, freedom and maturity. I didn’t have to wait for anyone. But, no, my children and, from what I understand, many kids just aren’t as enthralled with the opportunity to get a license. For starters, as we have told them endlessly from the time we handed them their ﬁrst wonderful-terrible device, they can’t use their cellphones when they are driving. When we drive, they can ignore the road signs and street signs. They don’t have to search the side of the road for deer, turtles or the rare and exciting fox. They can chat with their friends, who are similarly indifferent to their immediate surroundings, while the car, driven by someone else, magically carries them
to their next destination. We must have taken them to so many places where they wanted to go that they had no great urge to get behind the wheel and drive themselves. I know my mom was a chauffeur, too, driving the three of us hither and yon, but maybe we haven’t said to our children, “You can go when you can drive,” often enough. Maybe all the FaceTime and Skype time means that they can see and laugh with their friends without leaving the comfort of their home. They can’t bowl, see a movie or drink an Orange Julius, but they can hang out together while being in different places. Access to Uber and Lyft may also have reduced the need for them to drive. Then again, maybe it’s much simpler than that. I recently asked my son why he wasn’t more excited about driving. “Because,” he sighed, “when I get my license, you’ll ask me to do stuff.”
Techniques for avoiding traffic tickets
f your car is pulled over by a police ofﬁcer, there is a good chance that you will be treated mercifully by the ofﬁcer if you have the same ﬁrst name as his or hers. How do I know this? There has been research that corroborates that statement. Now in a possible scenario, it would be a little difﬁcult for me to pass myself off as Between “James,” the name you and me on the ofﬁcer’s name tag, when BY LEAH S. DUNAIEF my driver’s license clearly says differently, although I suppose I could try telling him that he can call me by my
nickname, “James,” for short. Somehow, on reﬂection, I don’t think that strategy would work. As I was considering the possibility, I remembered strategies that did work, deliberate or not, that at least got me out of a ticket. I’ll bet you have some such memories of roadside encounters with the law, too. The ﬁrst one to come to mind happened the day after I got married. My new husband was a medical student in Chicago, and he had ﬂown into New York City for the Sunday wedding. We then ﬂew back to his apartment that night, he returned to school the next day, and I got into his car and began to drive to an employment agency in the neighborhood. As I passed along the unfamiliar streets, I came up behind a large truck that was stopped just short of an underpass. When it didn’t immediately move, I assumed it was either stuck or parked there, and I drove around it to continue on my way. Immediately a police car appeared in my rear-view mirror,

lights ﬂashing. I should mention here that I had not been stopped before in my short driving career. I pulled over, rolled down the window and waited as the middle-aged policeman got out and walked toward me frowning. “What’s the matter with you?” he inquired. “You just ran a stop sign.” I looked into my side mirror and realized that was why the truck was stopped. It had, however, blocked my view of the sign. I started to explain. “Where are you going in such a hurry?” “I’m going for a job interview with an employment counselor. I just got married yesterday in New York and I need a job.” Although I do not cry easily, I could feel myself beginning to tear up. “What! You just got married? Where is your lazy bum of a husband? Why isn’t he out working?” (This was February 1963, years before women’s liberation was even an expression.) “He’s a medical student here, and I’m the

one who has to support us for now.” I was beginning to sob. My story must have had the ring of truth, because he stared at me for a moment, then took out his handkerchief — these were the days before tissues — and handed it to me. He looked stricken. “Now don’t cry. Everything will be all right. You just go on to your appointment.” He started to turn away, then turned back for a moment. “You just make sure that husband of yours takes care of you properly as soon as he ﬁnishes school.” He turned on his heel, climbed into his car and pulled away. It was only then, as I was wiping my cheeks, that I realized he had left me with only his handkerchief — and not a ticket. I have been stopped by police ofﬁcers on the highways in the course of the ensuing years. But I have never again been able to cry on cue. If you have any sureﬁre ticket beaters, please share them with the rest of us.

Ward Melville grad turned major league sports agent makes MLB history A Ward Melville High School grad recently scored a home run in the world of sports. A success story in the making, Burton Rocks, 46, has overcome great adversity to make history in Major League Baseball as a sports agent. Having worked a historic six-year, $26 million deal for St. Louis Cardinals’ shortstop Paul DeJong in the spring, Burton has now reached the upper echelon of sports agents. DeJong’s contract may be worth more than $51 million due to an option to earn more money in the last two years of the contract, which makes it the largest ever awarded to a first-year player in MLB history. To garner the tremendous success he has achieved, Rocks has overcome a debilitating illness — life-threatening asthma — which he has suffered with since he was a young child. As a student at Ward Melville High School, Rocks said he missed many days in class due to his constant battle with the most extreme form of asthma. He had a passion for band — having played the clarinet and the saxophone — but was rarely able to play at concerts due to his illness, which continued throughout his school years. As a middle school student at R.C. Murphy Junior High School, Rocks said he felt like an outsider due to his absences and had an issue with bullying when he was present. “I was the outsider kid with the inhaler,” he said. “But you have to accept what God gives you and move on, and I don’t hold any grudges.” Rocks said his parents, who still live in the Three Village area, sacrificed a lot for him. His father, world-renowned chemist and author Lawrence Rocks, spent much of his time caring for his son, in and out of the hospital, during his childhood. Rocks said his father always made sure he came back home each night, even when he was
away on business. “My dad used to bring me up food from the coffee shop as a treat when he would come visit me late at night after a business trip,” he said. “My dad might’ve been Dr. Rocks to the world, but to me he was Dad. He was there in the morning every day to wake me up, and at night every night to tuck me in.” Burton Rocks’ mother, Marlene, a former substitute teacher at Ward Melville, spent just as much, if not more time by his bedside. Rocks said his mother quit her job as a Spanish teacher in New York City to spend more time with him. When Rocks was able to attend school, he did his best to overcome the difficulty of missing so much class time. He had a special connection with his eighth-grade social studies teacher, Dan Comerford, with whom he still keeps in touch. Comerford worked at Ward Melville as a teacher from 1968–2001 and now lives in Jupiter Inlet Colony, Florida, where he is the mayor and the police commissioner. Comerford had fond memories of meeting Rocks in the mid-1980s, when he Clockwise from above, sports agent Burton Rocks, right, a former Three Village Central School District student, recently helped the junior high school student overcome a negotiated a six-year $26 million contract for St. Louis Cardinals’ shortstop Paul DeJong, left.
