A 50-Year-Old Looks At 50

One thing I can say definitively about turning 50, as I will on Friday, is that this column won’t be as good as it might have been 10 or 12 years ago, because half my brain seems to have seeped out of my ears in those intervening years (though, on the good news side, I’ve undoubtedly forgotten the details of the departure). But what I’ve lost in brainpower will, hopefully, be made up for in good, old-fashioned hard work, as, like anyone who receives imploring mail from AARP, I’m up writing this at 6 in the morning, having not been ... 17 Feb 2020 by Staff Writer

Letting Kids Grow Up On Their Own

I got my first boat, a 9-foot-long rowboat, when I was 9 years old. We spent our summers at the Jersey Shore because our parents wanted to protect my brother and me from polio, which scared everybody in the 1940s and was believed to be transmitted in swimming pools. We lived in a little house on Long Beach Island, and the harbor was less than a hundred yards away. Most people had boats. My older brother had a sailboat; I got a rowboat because I wasn’t ready for a sailboat, and the rule was that I couldn’t row beyond the ... by Staff Writer

On The Rise

The Suffolk County Legislature last week unanimously passed a measure establishing a Coastal Resiliency and Sea Level Rise Task Force. It would be made up of 21 members — some from county government, a member from each of Suffolk’s 10 towns, and state and federal government representatives, among others. County Legislator Al Krupski, a Cutchogue Democrat who introduced the measure with Rudy Sunderman, a Shirley Republican, said the legislature’s members “immediately need to get together” on the important issue. The bill begins by noting that “sea level rise has led to accelerated coastal erosion worldwide and is of particular concern ... by Staff Writer

The North Wind Wins

The dirt hasn’t frozen, and so the carrots planted on a late-season whim have actually grown big enough to eat. I slice into the muddy earth with a sharp spade and then pry back the short handle, compressing the dirt away from the slender roots, and make a narrow groove. I loosen one carrot, and then its neighbors slip out so easily. Here and there, an earthworm is tangled in the process. He writhes at the sudden exposure, and I feel a little guilty having brought him up in February. An ancient fable tells the story of a competition between ... by Staff Writer

Hearts And Flowers

It was the marketing guru Jerry Della Femina who said, “Publicity, bad or good — it’s all good.” At least I think it was Jerry who said it, but if he didn’t, he should have. Anyway: What is meant by that, of course, is that if you’re aiming to be in the public eye, your nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize is just as good as a juicy piece about you plastered on Page Six. No one understands this better than Donald Trump. He incessantly craves the limelight and takes umbrage anytime he is pushed out of the spotlight’s glare, ... by Staff Writer

The Rubble Of The Iowa Caucuses

I’m certainly not going to tell you I saw it coming, even after spending the morning of the Iowa caucuses literally in a political theater in Des Moines. But I will tell you this: After talking to my son Jack about his first experience caucusing later that evening at the airport, I had an inkling. Because whatever means a state decides to use to choose a presidential candidate, there should be one cardinal rule: The voter should get to vote for the candidate of his or her choice. Or at least the second. Or third. Or fourth. Jack was not ... by Staff Writer

All That Farms Provide

Farming on Long Island deserves to be greatly appreciated. Among public officials from Long Island who very much do appreciate agriculture here — and throughout the state — is State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. The former state assemblyman from Great Neck Plaza last year issued a laudatory report on agriculture. Mr. DiNapoli noted in it that Suffolk County remains a top agricultural county in the state, No. 4, with $225.6 million in total sales in 2017. (It was led only by the upstate counties of Wyoming, with $307.5 million; Cayuga, with $287.5 million; and Genesee, with $234.9 million.) His report ... 10 Feb 2020 by Staff Writer
