Mission: Our goal is to play an important role in your quality of life and to provide a valuable form of public service to our neighbors. We all know that weekly media sources help strengthen the communities they serve. Tri Hamlet News is hoping to boost the local economy, both through advertising and in news coverage. One of our goals is to showcase community businesses at a time when we need to be shopping locally, investing in the community and protecting local jobs. We will also focus on good news, news of Scout projects, civic club fundraisers, Little League registration, chamber of commerce happenings, church bake sales and students who make the honor roll or dean’s list. Information like this helps neighbors get to know each other a little better. We will also report on anni­versaries and family reunions, reminding people of the things they like so well about their community. We will provide an accessible forum for expression. We will allow readers to make their voices heard, and enable ordinary citizens to deliberate on the future of their community. Your community newspaper should serve as a watchdog to hold elected leaders account­able. We want to be the light that shines on local governments, using Freedom of Information Laws to get public records and make those available to citizens. We want to keep voters informed. We want people see how their tax dollars are being spent. During an economic downturn when tax dollars are scarce and the demands on them have increased, it is vital for our local news­paper to bring this to the public’s attention. As a community newspaper, we will always promote our strengths and our goal is to produce a quality, commu­nity-oriented online newspaper of which our read­ers will be proud. We will reach that goal through hard work, teamwork, loyalty and a strong dedication towards publishing the truth. Please support us, read us for all the local news happening in your community, and remember: Our local retailers are counting on you as well. A valued news source will strengthen our community!

When I taught about William Floyd in Stony Brook O.L.L.I. In connection with the natural beauty on the estate (I teach a nature photography course) I felt I could not just overlook the crosses that lie outside the fence of the family plot. They had names like Pompey and Jupiter names I knew that they did not give themselves. I felt that I had to research on google to find out more. All my life my family told me how proud they were of the Abolitionists in our family. Because I was hit with a rock when I was eight and called. “Christ killer” I knew what discrimination was and when the Civil Rights movement came I marched with Dr. King. I was shocked when I researched and found one of my ownS relatives here on Long Island was a slaveholder. He was a patriot who fought in the Revolution AND a slaveholder. This has been the irony of America from the beginning. Good people have fought to expand justice and liberty over the years. When I did research I found what life was like for Floyd’s slaves I came across a professor in the African American studies department at Brooklyn College who talked about Floyd. I found a lot of useful information from an art exhibit about these slaves which should be displayed in our community. I do not think that this should be the aspect that should not be talked about. I do NOT think that the statue should be removed because it causes us to confront our history. I think instead a plaque needs to be added to the statue showing that he was a slaveholder. This is the original sin of America. Until we deal with this history we will not have true equality and peace. We should not erase what he did that was heroic. We must point out the contradiction that he was also a slaveholder. We should not hide from our history. This is different than removing Confederate statues of people who tried to destroy our country. This man was one of the founders of it and he was also a slaveholder. This is why I continue to dialogue for liberty and justice for ALL.
I am so proud of the young people in our community. There was a group of them standing peacefully on the corner of William Floyd and Montauk with signs calling for justice. They were very young, both Black and white. It reminded me of the Civil Rights movement and Dr. King. I am so proud of their protest. They are our future. 58Johnny De Vito and 57 others 4 Comments
