JNEWS: Cunningham, Kaitlyn [MCstudent] runs the tunnel



Racing, and remembering those lost on 9/11

It’s been a little over 14 years since Stephen Siller, a courageous New York City firefighter, lost his life trying to save others on September 11, 2001. Siller, who called Park Slope’s Squad 1 his work home, is best remembered as the fireman who raced to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel and, when he saw the tunnel was already closed, donned 60 pounds of gear and ran through the tunnel to the Twin Towers where he lost his life trying to save others.

Fourteen years has done little to assuage the pain of the Siller family for their loss that fateful day, but out of that dark hour was born the annual Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers 5K Run and Walk, an event that drew over 30,000 runners in its’ latest installment on Sept. 27.

JNEWS: Read, Henry [MCstudent] maps Shelter Island’s septic systems



Building Department intern creating septic system map

One of the keys to Shelter Island’s long-term ecological sustainability lies in a computer program installed on a computer at the Building Department.

Summer intern Henry Read, an Islander and graduate of Mercy High School in Riverhead, spends eight hours a day analyzing the local terrain with the “Pictometry” application. He’s been tasked with creating an online database of Shelter Island’s septic systems for the Town Geographic Information System (GIS) site.

“What we hope to do at the local level is build a better system for spotting potential problems,” Town Engineer John Cronin, said.

Mr. Read studies civil engineering at Manhattan College. He contacted the Building Department after reading an advertisement in the Reporter. “I have always loved the environment [here],” he said, “and working on Shelter Island is even more special.”

*** and ***

One use for Mr. Read’s database is to use it in conjunction with independent laboratory tests. By matching bodies of water with high levels of coliform to aging septic tanks, engineers will, be able, to a certain extent, pinpoint the source of pollution.

*** and ***

Mr. Read hopes to map the systems of Shelter Island’s oldest homes by hand, but currently works only from his desk at the Building Department. The software program he relies on has proven invaluable, he said. The company behind Pictometry uses low-flying airplanes to map buildings and changes in terrain.

*** and ***

Shelter Island will consider options for continuing Mr. Read’s work once the intern returns to Manhattan College in the fall. Mr. Cronin noted that the Town Board would likely support the completion of the database, “based on the perceived success during this summer’s effort.”
