Carmans River must be saved for all. Thank you Joe Martens NYSDEC and thank you Gene Smith the owner of the land. Mr. Smith, a Yaphank resident and Vietnam veteran who has earned four Purple Hearts, said the majority of the sale to the state will go toward his effort to help homeless veterans. Wertheim Wildlife Refuge, which is in The Carmans river, received 10 million dollars in stimulis money to build a visitation center in their woods and six hundred thousand to hire an architect. That money should have gone for the purchase of land around the Carmans River
