King Kullen Raises $35K For Long Island Cares
Canditates Screen For Suffolk Legislative Races Slates for Suﬀolk County Legislative Districts are beginning to take shape ahead of the November 7, 2017 elections. GOP leaders screened persons of interest for the county’s legislative seats which are geographically within Brookhaven Town boundaries in Republicans’ hopes of unseating long-time Democrat incumbents and possibly taking control of the Democrat dominated Suﬀolk Legislature.
On hand for the check presentation were (from l. to r.) King Kullen Co-President Brian C. Cullen; Long Island Cares Executive Director Paule T. Pachter; King Kullen Senior VP and Chief Merchandising Oﬃcer Joseph W. Brown, who also serves as a Long Island Cares Board Member; and King Kullen Co-President J. Donald Kennedy.
King Kullen, America’s First Supermarket, recently came to the aid of Long Islanders in need by hosting a “Check Out Hunger” campaign in its stores, raising $35,000. The money was donated to the Long Island Cares/Harry Chapin Food Bank, which has been serving the hungry on Long Island since 1980. King Kullen Co-President Brian C. Cullen stated, “King Kullen has been a longtime supporter of the Long Island Cares/Harry Chapin Food Bank. We are pleased to partner with our customers who contributed to ‘Check Out Hunger’ to assist Long Island Cares in its mission to provide emergency food where and when it is needed. Helping those in need in the communities we serve is a tradition that dates back to my grandfather, Michael J. Cullen, who founded King Kullen in 1930.” In 1997, King Kullen was the ﬁrst supermarket chain to participate in the annual “Check Out Hunger” campaign, a unique partnership between Long Island Cares and the shopping
community in which customers can make a donation with a coupon when checking out at the supermarket register. This year’s campaign ran from October through December 31, 2016. One hundred percent of all donations go to Long Island Cares. “King Kullen has a long history of making a diﬀerence in the ﬁght against hunger and its customers have always been charitable in supporting our mission,” observed Long Island Cares/Harry Chapin Food Bank Executive Director Paule T. Pachter. “Together, we continue to help improve the lives of our neighbors on Long Island. We are very grateful to King Kullen and its customers for their steadfast support.” Headquartered in Bethpage, NY, King Kullen is recognized by the Smithsonian Institution as American’s ﬁrst supermarket. Founded in 1930 by Michael J. Cullen, King Kullen operates 32 supermarkets and ﬁve Wild by Nature stores across Long Island.

Born and raised in Shirley, she is an alumna of the William Floyd School District and now resides in Mastic Beach. Gross is a kindergarten teacher in the William Floyd School District.

He is a retired FDNY Fire Marshall where he worked for 22 years. He is an attorney specializing in labor employment and environmental law with a private practice conducting business under the Law Ofﬁce of Raymond G. Keenan. In her bid for re-election, Gross cites a “strong commitment to the betterment Wendy Gross Ray Keenan of the school and community” which she maintains has always been one of her priorities. “One of my biggest goals of and there is already a walking trail.

I’ve been trying to ﬁgure it out and when I ask,” Keenan said, “I get no answers. The library bought a table at a Rotary event for $900 and $600 for Colonial Youth, and that’s not counting journal ads.” In response to Keenan’s ﬁscal assertions, Library Director Kerri Rosalia told South Shore Press: “Any food items purchased by the including pizza Library, or programs, are intended for the beneﬁt of community residents who we serve, thus are allowable purchases.” “Pizza brings teens into the library,” Lorraine Squires, head of the library’s teen devices said in a written statement. “If kids know there will be pizza at a program, they are more likely to attend, and the communal act of eating together lowers barriers and allows teens
toshare their thoughtsabout books and programs.” library Addressing Keenan’s claims about
Colonial Rotary and Youth Services, Rosalia stated: “The library has a long and consistent history of working with other community organizations on mutual projects of beneﬁt to the William Floyd School District. As part of our strategic outreach efforts,” Rosalia continued, “we work to embed our librarians in a variety of organizations. We do this as part of our outreach program, as part of our communication plan to get the word out about the many varied services the library offers, as a way act as an information to resource to community organizations, and to be part of the fabric of the communityat-large. The role of public libraries continues to change and we work outside the building and in the community as a key tenet of our strategy to meet the needs of those we serve. Any journal ads are part on efforts of our advertising behalf of the at community library. Attendees events and meetings is a key part of our job,” Rosalia whether explained. “So it is a joint food drive or a literacy program, we work the local Chambers of Commerce, Kiwanis, Rotary and Colonial Youth and Family Services and the William Floyd School District in ways that can make a difference in the lives of our residents.” Keenan is a proponent of building onto and making capital improvements to the existing library and a staunch critic of the library being relocated further south along William Floyd Parkway. “Almost every library on Long Island is in a commercial zone where it should be,” Keenan said, using Sayville, Patchogue-Medford and Center Moriches libraries as examples. From a budgeting standpoint, Keenan is a sharp critic of this year being a second consecutive year of a zero tax library increase. Gross stated: “Two years of a zero tax increase while continuing the integrity of the programs, accommodating one-thousand visitors to the library a day, while the cost of living continues to rise takes tremendous effort,” Gross said. She points out: “Legally, we have to maintain certain reserves for contingency expenses or emergencies, and we have an amazing business ofﬁce staff who works closely with the library staff to ensure that the integrity of this library’s programs are maintained.”

How To Keep Safe During This Winter Weather
With frigid temperatures and signiﬁcant snow fall expected across many parts of the state for the next week or so propane consumers need take a steps to stay safe and warm. Homes and business that use few important propane to generate heat or run appliances should make sure to take the following steps: 1. Clear snow and ice from around your propane tank, chimneys, ﬂue pipes
vents. and Use a broom rather than a shovel, and clear these areas frequently
to reduce the possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning. If pipes freeze and crack, gas can leak out and cause potential danger.
2. Check your propane tank, chimneys, ﬂue pipes and vent connectors for damage, blockage, or debris caused by snow or ice. Do not attempt repairs yourself. Call your propane dealer for assistance. 3. Keep path to propane tanks
clear as frigid weather progresses.
Ensure that there is always a clear to your tank for deliveries, path including your ﬁller pipe. And be sure to notify any snow plow drivers or contractors of your propane tank location.
If pipes freeze and crack, gas can leak out and cause potential danger.
4. Use extreme caution when operating portable generators. Never use a portable generator (gasoline, diesel, or propane) indoors or in enclosed areas. This can result in carbon monoxide poisoning or death. If you smell gas inside or outside of your home or business, follow these instructions: 1. No ﬂames or sparks! Immediately put out all smoking materials and other open ﬂames. Do not operate or turn on or off lights, appliances, telephones or cell phones. 2. Leave the area immediately. Get everyone out of the building or area where you suspect gas is leaking. 3. Shut off the gas. Turn off the main gas supply valve on your propane tank, if it is safe to do so. To close the valve, turn it to the right (clockwise). 4. Report leak. From a neighbor’s home or other building away from the the gas leak, call your propane retailer right away. If you can’t reach your propane retailer, call 911 or your local ﬁre department.
5. Do not return to the building or area until your propane retailer, emergency responder, or qualiﬁed service technician determines that it is safe to do so. Get your system 6. checked. Before you attempt to use any of your propane appliances, your propane retailer or a qualiﬁed service technician must check your entire system to ensure that it is leak-free.

Community Viewpoint Supporting Gross! Dear Editor: My name is Lorraine Mentz. I am an educator, a resident, a taxpayer, a wife and a mother of two daughters ages 13 and 10. I am president of the William Floyd Elementary School PTO and vice president of the William Floyd Middle School PTO. I am involved in many different committees within the William Floyd School District and I have been actively serving the children and families in our community for over ten years. The purpose of my letter is to share my thoughts and feelings about Wendy Gross. Wendy’s devotion to the community is apparent in her volunteer work at the Library as a Board member, as a literacy tutor, and as a coordinator of the Summer Reading Program at the Library. Each summer Wendy coordinates William Floyd School District teachers and administrators who volunteer their time to read to community children over the summer break. Parents, children, and Library staff look forward to this unique volunteer-based event each week. Wendy is an avid Library user as well. Often she is sitting in the adult area throughout the week. Sometimes she is tutoring adults in reading and writing, other times she is meeting with community members seeking out her guidance and advice. Other times she is visiting with staff and administrators. No matter what the purpose of the visit, Wendy always has a smile on her face and she makes time for everyone. Obviously Wendy can be found at monthly Library board meetings, volunteering her time to help with the governance and oversight of the Library operations. Her work as a Kindergarten teacher in Tangier Smith Elementary School proves that she understands the importance of early literacy and makes her an excellent advocate for the Library programs and services. She has been a wonderful connector between the William Floyd School District and the Library, helping to strengthen and expand an already successful partnership. Often I run into Wendy at many community and school events such as the Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade, Annual Smith Point 5K for Literacy Run, the middle school and high school theater productions, Kid Fest, Applebee’s Fundraising breakfasts for many different organizations from Rotary to many of the music and sports teams. I am glad that Wendy is in our community and that she always advocates for children. I am thrilled that she is a Library Board Trustee and I will continue to support her and vote for her because she is truly an invaluable asset to our community. Sincerely, Lorraine Mentz William Floyd Elementary PTO William Floyd Middle School PTO The Process for a New Library Has Been Amazing Dear Editor: My name is Joseph Furnari, I am the Chairman of the Community Library Advocacy Committee (CLAC) and it has been amazing to have such an opportunity. I feel that it is important to write to this community, not only because of my position, but to make you aware
of our current efforts. The Community Library Advocacy Committee (CLAC) has been working tirelessly to acquire all the necessary information to bring to the community so that they can make a well informed decision on the direction of our library. The committee, in cooperation with the Library board, has gone through every piece of available vacant land that could be a potential location for a “New Library”, but all proved to be unattainable or unﬁt. The parking lots and buildings surrounding the current Library location are not for sale, Any property within the community, would be more costly than the current proposed site, as the Links property has been offered to the Library at little or no cost. The original proposed site of the “New Library” at the former Links property was in close proximity to the Colony Preserve complex, so we invited their representatives to be a part of our committee. We listened to the concerns, questions and comments, and we decided to relocate the proposed “New Library” within the links property, NE of the lake, closer to the Wm. Floyd School District. There are many beneﬁts to this shift in location. Myself, along with the rest of the CLAC board, will be meeting with the “New Library” Design committee to come up with a design to lower the initial cost of the project. As we get closer to a referendum we will have more exact numbers. In addition to the savings from moving the location of the proposed site, the Library has reserve funds to apply to the project costs. The sale of our Library building will generate signiﬁcant additional income to offset project costs. We will also be working very closely with our elected ofﬁcials to acquire the necessary funding for this project from the state and federal level, to alleviate the ﬁnancial impact on our community. I understand how a “New Library” building, and an additional monthly cost for your family may be unpopular with some people, and there are others who are on a ﬁxed income. I ask that before you make a ﬁrm decision on the project, please let us as a committee continue to do our job to provide you with more information. I am a ﬁrm believer that an investment in our community is an investment in ourselves. I also want to ﬁnish with this last thought, the services that our library offers are an inspiration to other libraries across the island. Let’s imagine what kind of library we would have, if we had a facility to match our services. Additionally, a library is more than just a physical building, where we keep books, computers, movies and have programs, it’s a community center where people can go to learn, to get help in just about every aspect of life and ultimately during times of hardship, (like Hurricane Sandy), where basic necessities were lost. People want to come to a place that feels like home. Going forward a Facebook page will be created to provide up-to-date information to the community as we proceed, so please keep a look out. You can read up on the history of this community driven process and stay up-to-date by visiting the project website at http://future. communitylibrary.org. I hope this calms some fears or answers some questions. Ultimately, we want everyone in this community to feel included in this process.

Suffolk GOP Screens Candidates For 2017
Legislative Races To Challenge Dem Incumbents Slaughter Is Dems’ Pic for 3rd LD Race
continued from page 1 In a birds-eye view of the Third District Legislative District, incumbent Kate Browning (WFP) will be term limited after serving six terms, leaving the seat wide open without the advantage of incumbency. Browning vacated her job as a bus driver 12 years ago to make her entrance into the political arena and has won election every consecutive two year term. Josh Slaughter, 33, is Browning’s chief of staff and has been tapped as the Democrat candidate for the seat. On the Republican side of the aisle, GOP leaders screened legislative hopefuls with frontrunners Bob Vecchio, Rudy Sunderman and Timothy Rothang being considered to run for the 3rd LD against Slaughter. Vecchio, 49, is no newcomer to elective ofﬁce. Elected to the William Floyd School Board in 2003, Vecchio has been serving as president of the board since 2006. He is controller for the Seaﬁeld Center where his professional responsibilities encompass health care accounting and management. Vecchio is married with two children. Sunderman, 47, is a lifelong Mastic resident. He is married with four children and touts a long record of He is chief of Mastic Fire Department and public service. is also District Manager for Centereach Fire District. Rothang, 32, is a lifelong resident of the Tri-Hamlet Community and now owns a home in Shirley. He is married with one child. Rothang is Citizen’s Advocate for the Town of Brookhaven and Assistant to Supervisor Ed Romaine. hopefuls, as well as Slaughter, were The GOP interviewed about their intentions to serve on the Suffolk County Legislature, where each voiced deﬁnitive reasons why they would be the best person to ﬁll the vacancy that Browning leaving. is Topping the list of criticisms on the GOP side and even by Democrat candidate Slaughter, is the state of the county’s ﬁnances and the budget gap that exists. “First and foremost,” Slaughter said, “I don’t agree with raising fees, and Kate also voted against raising fees.” Slaughter said the county should “be more aggressive in going after things that take money out of people’s pockets like sales tax enforcement from cash businesses such as ‘construction’ and ‘cash restaurants’ which he says “are not accountable.” Slaughter said the county “would not be able to go after businesses unless the state gives us the authority to enforce this.” Citing Browning’s record of constituent service, Slaughter said a vote for him would be a vote for more of the same of Browning’s work. Citing $200 million that has been secured for the Mastic and Shirley sewer district, Slaughter asserts: “There is still work to be done and I’m conﬁdent I’m the best person to get it done.” Under his tenure as ﬁre commissioner of Mastic Fire District, Sunderman said the department’s taxes were reduced by 20 percent. “I’m a lifelong resident, I care about this community, and I am the best person for the job,” Sunderman said. Sunderman, whose resume includes eight years as district manager of CVS Pharmacy, points to his business experience and ﬁscal responsibility to serve on the legislature. “He adds: I’m a public servant in this community with a proven record of reducing taxes while not cutting services, so what I would do in the county is take a look at inter-municipal agreements and shared services to cut costs. The county is in a deﬁcit and they’re borrowing money to operate yearly. We have to look at the deﬁcit and how money is being spent,” Sunderman added, “because they’re raising fees in parks for camping and parking, and they’re not putting money back into caring for the parks, and with Smith Point Park being the number one park in Suffolk, this is very concerning to me.” Sunderman cites his emergency services experiences as a unique perspective he would bring to the county

Story by Barbara LaMonica There’s signiﬁcantly more that goes into making restaurants and catering facilities safe than great cuisine. Protecting restaurants and eating establishments from kitchen ﬁres is a primary objective of business proprietors, but a concern of perhaps little or no consequence to customers and patrons. Restaurateurs are, in fact, required to follow strict guidelines and protocol that keep their ﬁre alarm and ﬁre suppression systems updated and in accordance with code. Ian Rankin, owner of East End Fire, Inc, and ofﬁcer manager Jenn Rankin, are doing that in the metro area today. Since the husband-and-wife team established their business in 2011, the company has grown exponentially. Their estimated 600 clients include businesses and a host of eating establishments in New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. Monroe College in New York and Sushi Tai in Tarrytown are two named clients whose ﬁre suppression systems East End Fire, Inc. service. “Acquiring a license is a lengthy process and we are looking very forward to expanding our business here in Suffolk County because this is where we live,” Jenn explains. While the high demand of servicing their current client base has kept the Rankins busy, Jenn said they are looking ahead to beginning their application process. So what’s involved in inspecting ﬁre suppression systems? Jenn takes us on a verbal tour through an interview with her simpliﬁed explanation of how the very detailed profession works. “The services we provide include inspections of kitchen ﬁre suppression systems in restaurants which must be done every six months. We also inspect portable ﬁre extinguishers yearly,” Jenn explains. Imperative to safe kitchen operations are that “links” in kitchen systems operate optimally. “This is extremely important because if we ﬁll out the system report and we tag the ﬁre extinguisher gratis, the links become greasy, then the chemicals won’t penetrate to stop a ﬁre if one should system inspections, occur if the links are not changed,” she points out. Yet another component of the safety but only if everything is in order,” she said, underscoring: “Our number one importance because safety is our number inspection process in culinary kitchens is hydrostatic testing of ﬁre systems. “Here, we is that we never put tags on something that is non-compliant one concern. This is the kind of business where you need to really care about your client conduct inspections to ensure all systems are compliant and up to code,” Jenn said. “We and their customers,” Jenn stated. “There are some companies,” she said, “that will tag are then required to ﬁll out a system report which we sent to ﬁre marshals.” even though results of some inspections may not be up to code.” What the Rankins place at the top of the pyramid of priorities in their business is So next time you look forward to joining family, friends or colleagues for great cuisine ethical professionalism. “We are honest and reliable to all our clients,” Jenn said. “The take just a moment to reﬂect about the most important part of the work we do is to ensure the safety of the establishments we at a nice breakfast, lunch, dinner or catered affair, conduct inspections so their customers are safe,” Jenn stated. “So when we do kitchen behind-the-scenes coordination that is synchronized to keep you and your party safe.

By Suffolk County Clerk Judy Pascale Like most counties throughout the United States, Suffolk County has seen its fair share of mortgage foreclosures since the decline of the housing and ﬁnancial markets.

Homeowners should know there are resources available to help navigate them through the process and help determine whether these companies can offer assistance or are just trying to make money while offering little or no help.

The New York Attorney General has also setup a site where you can determine whether the company offering to provide assistance is reputable and also away to report those are not. Their site is available at AGScamHelp.com. that It’s important for Suffolk County residents to utilize these tools to increase the likelihood that they avoid foreclosure. In 2016, nearly 5,000 homes entered the foreclosure process in Suffolk County.
What are the signs if your loved one is dependant or addicted to prescription drugs? It can be very difﬁcult to recognize early on if your loved one has become involved with drugs or any other addictive substance. Addiction is a chronic, often relapsing brain disease. It causes compulsive drug seeking and use despite harmful consequences to the addicted person as well as the people around that person. The abuse of drugs -even prescription drugs -- leads to changes in the structure and function of the brain. You should also know that your loved one is unlikely to admit they a problem as addicts tend to cover their tracks. The following signs one should look for, are as follows: • A shift in mood, attitude and motivation • New friends and new hangouts • Poor performance at school or work and/or being absent • Secretive behavior such as lying • Sudden weight loss or gain • A sudden, unexplained increase in spending • Bloodshot eyes or enlarged pupils • Giving up once-favorite pastimes and hobbies • Strange body odors; trembling hands • Unusual changes in sleeping patterns or schedule You may notice that your loved one also has angry outbursts and is more volatile or unpredictable. Your loved might also be sleeping more or suffering from insomnia, choosing to wear sunglasses often, making an effort to cover up unusual breath or body odors. Addiction is a disease. If treatment has been ongoing with support groups and counseling typically, relapses are common and are to be expected. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the three classes of prescription drugs that are often abused are: • Opoids used to treat pain • Central nervous system (CNS depressants, such as benzodiazepines (Xaaxx, Valium, Ativan, Klonopin), which are used to treat anxiety and sleep disorders • Stimulants, such as amphetamine and dextroamphetamine (Adderall) or methylphenidate (Concerta, Daytrana, Methylin, Ritalin) used to treat attention deﬁcit disorder and narcolepsy (a sleep disorder).

Brookhaven Town GOP Leader Jesse Garcia said of the slate of legislative hopefuls who have been screened to date: “Based on the level of candidates we have, their level of energy, combined with the kinds of accomplishments we’ve seen on the Republican majority on the Brookhaven Town Board, people are seeing how things are done the Brookhaven way.” Garcia cited the need for “new ﬁscal management” in the county contrasting the county’s diminishing bond rating compared to Brookhaven Town’s AAA bond rating as assigned by Moody’s Investor Sarah Anker Rob Calarco Jane Bonner Services.

The good news is ď€™ď€źď€°ď€Żď€€ď€§ď€şď ď€ˇď€°ď€„ď€€ď€?ď€źď€† that you can get the asset protection you desire while still
maintaining your tax exemptions. One way to achieve this ď€Ąď€™ ď€¤ ď€˜ď€˘ď€’ď€Ąď€™ď€–ď€˘ď€Ł is with an Irrevocable Trust, oftentimes referred to as a ď€šď€°ď€„ď€€ď€Ľď€şď€°ď€€ď€–ď€Źď€źď€źď€şď€ˇď€ˇď€„ď€€ď€Ľď€şď€ď€°ď€źď€žď€€ď€–ď€łď€Źď€źď€žď€żď€ś Medicaid Protection Trust.

The way this works is that you as the owner ď€?ď€şď€Źď€šď€€ď€§ď€źď€Źď €ď€Źď€š
of the property would create a trust, you are the grantor, sometimes ď€‚ď€€ď€•ď€–ď€Łď€šď€˜ď€&#x; referred to as the settlor. You would name a ď€˘ď€’ď€Ąď€™ď€šď€” ď€’ď€˘ď€¤ď€Ł third partyď€żď€˝ď€°ď€žď€žď€´ (anyone other than you spouse) to act as trustee ď€şď€šď€Źď€Žď€şď€„ď€€ ď€´ď€Žď€łď€Źď€°ď€ˇď€€ď€–ď€†ď€€ and the trust would also provide for distribution at the time your death to your named beneďŹ ciaries.

Once you transfer the home (or any other non-retirement assets) ď€&#x; ď€•ď€šď€Łď€¤ď€˘ď€šď€“ď€Ľď€¤ď€š into the trust, the â€œclockâ€? begins to run for the purpose of ď€Ąď€´ď€Žď€śď€€ď€&#x;ď€şď€ąď€źď€°ď€Żď€ş asset protection in the context of Medicaid planning.

year look back when applying for Chronic Care Medicaid, which means that once assets have been transferred into a properly drafted Irrevocable Trust and ďŹ ve years has passed, they are no longer countable resources when applying for Medicaid. The trust is considered a Grantor Trust for tax purposes, meaning that the Grantor is still considered the owner for tax purposes. Because the Grantor retains certain rights with respect to lifetime use of the properties in the trust, the Grantor is permitted to maintain any tax beneďŹ ts associated with ownership of the property, including the enhanced star beneďŹ t, Veteranâ€™s beneďŹ t and
any capital gains exemptions they would otherwise be eligible to receive. Contrast that with a decision to transfer the property outright to your children for the purpose of protecting the asset which would result in a total loss of all preferential tax treatment. Transferring your home or any non-retirement assets into an irrevocable trust offers ďŹ‚exibility in planning, maintenance in any current tax exemptions and complete asset protection. To determine if an Irrevocable Trust is appropriate you should consult an elder law expert in your area.
