Gone Dancing Celebrates 8th Recital By KRISTIN HERRON Gone Dancing celebrated its eighth year in Oyster Bay with its annual recital, held at St. Dominic’s auditorium on Saturday, June 21. With nearly 200 registered students, one recital would be too long. To solve that problem, Carrie Kirincic and Caitlin Malley presented two separate shows. The second show sold out days in advance. Representing the culmination of a year’s worth of preparation for children as young as age 2, the shows highlighted many different styles of dance: ballet, lyrical, jazz, tap, hip hop, acro, and even break-dancing. As Malley said, “The recital is something the teachers and the kids work for all year. This was our eighth recital and every year it keeps getting better and better. They are a lot of work but in the end it’s all about the kids and helping them build up their confidence.” Both recitals kicked off with the Gone Dancing Company presenting an homage to the 1980s with “What a Feeling.” Dressed in neon shirts and leg warmers, the 33 dancers energized the auditorium. Featuring lifts and the breakdancing skills of 8-year-old Charlie Dickman of Bayville, the opening number set just the right tone. Malley noted, “We picked ‘What a Feeling’ because it was a great song, really fun and upbeat. The song is about finding something you love and making it happen, and that is what the studio is to us.” Some of the youngest performers may have been overwhelmed by their first times on stage in front of more than 400 audience members, but they persevered with great aplomb. Six-year-old Camille Torres of Oyster Bay said, “I love, love, loved my first dance recital! It was so fun to be on stage and my favorite was to do my final split in front of everybody!” The beautiful narrative dance “Another Cinderella Story” featured

Students from Gone Dancing performed in the studio’s eighth recital recently. (Photo by Gone Dancing) the trio of Grace Barrios, Meghan Kelly and Shannon Walsh, with each girl representing a different phase of Cinderella’s life. Meghan Kelly also joined Georgia Pappalardo and Mary Vera for the graceful lyrical dance “100 Years.” Soloists Cailin Andrasick, Grace Barrios, Lily Dickman, Jane Gurney, Meghan Kelly, Alessandra Martorella, Molly McGee and Brittany Schiavone all received resounding applause. To keep things fresh and exciting, Gone Dancing has introduced

additional teachers to its roster. Franklin Chen leads the breakdancing class, with a group of young dancers performing feats that caused one audience member to say, “How do they do that?!” Kelly Reilly instructs Acro class. Set to the beat of “Circus Afro” from the film Madagascar 3, the dance featured cartwheels, tumbles and a pyramid of dancers. As 7-year-old Julia Noboa of Oyster Bay said, “I like when we did the Acro because it was fun. You got to do gymnastics.”

Lauren Fetkowitz’s unique choreography adds even more dimension to the studio and recital. The senior competition team danced magnificently to the Afro-Brazilian number “Maghalena.” The mini-team—all first-graders—interpreted friendships through the lyrical piece “Remember Me This Way.” Kirincic and Malley jointly choreographed dances by the two junior teams. It was clear why the Junior 1 Team received a special award for the “Sassiest” number at one of the team’s three competitions this year for their energy and cohesion in “Conga.” The Junior 2s sparkled in purple sequins and fringe. The interplay of Charlie Dickman’s moves and Liana Giannuzzi’s acrobatics made for a fun interlude in “Hit the Road, Jack.” Gone Dancing offers camps and classes during the summer and will start back with a full roster of classes in the fall. Competition team try-outs will be held in August. After eight years studying dance at Gone Dancing, 10-year-old Shannon Walsh wouldn’t go anywhere else. “I love dancing,” she said. “The people who work and dance here are like family to me.”

the luau is fairly substantial in helping the museum do what it does.” This event was held in order to raise money to help restore the Oyster Bay train station to how it looked in 1902, when the town’s most famous resident, President Theodore Roosevelt, used it regularly. Many donations have already been received from organizations, government partners and individual donors in order to successfully revive this historic location, an important site in Oyster Bay’s and the United State’s history that is usually overlooked. “Our train station is the only true presidential rail road station in America,” commented Gary Farkash, an OBRM Board of Trustees Member, “Heads of states, kings and queens would take the railroad to visit President Roosevelt at Sagamore Hill and he would meet them at the station.” The museum will also benefit from the station’s restoration, receiving some renovations of its own. The museum will reside next to the train station on the end of Audrey Avenue where its interior and exhibits will be updated in order to preserve the history of the station and promote education to visitors. The station was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in July

Alex Gallego and Gary Farkash 2005 and will be revived to reflect its significance. “What spurred the restoration was love for the station.” said Farkash, “It’s our station and a reminder that we are a piece of something much greater than us. Our significance as a town in history is important.” For more information on the museum, its fundraisers and the restoration, please call 516-558-7036 or visit

Diet and exercise are the best ways to help stay healthy and keep in shape, but supplementing a healthy lifestyle with cosmetic surgery procedures will leave you in the best shape that you can be in… healthy and beautiful both inside and out! Breast augmentation, breast lifts and breast reductions provide beautiful, natural-looking results. Combining these procedures with liposuction, tummy tuck, body lift, facelift, eyelid lift or other nonsurgical services is most effective. Regardless of which procedures you select, you can turn back the hands of time! The hottest surgical techniques to make you look younger include eyelid lifts, facelifts, deeper laser resurfacing, and rhinoplasty. The eyelid lift only takes about an hour and can give a very youthful appearance to both the upper and lower lids. A facelift, whether it is mini, lower, or full lift can take years off of facial appearance. A facelift is great way to pull up the excessive skin, rejuvenate the neck and lift the jowls. Mini, or modified facelifts are often performed on much younger patients before the signs of aging are advanced. Overall, the natural look is of utmost importance. Combining laser resurfacing procedures and rhinoplasty is effective in completing a full facial rejuvenation. In addition, injections work well to eliminate facial lines and wrinkles, such as Botox Cosmetic® and Juvederm coupled with non-surgical skin tightening and laser hair removal ensures phenomenal results. If you are struggling with those last few inches, Body Contouring can be the answer. The most common body contouring technique is liposuction and utilizing the latest and most advanced products, your recovery is fast. Smart Lipo MPX, is ideal for the neck, jawline, arms, breasts, “bra fat,” abdomen, “love handles”, “saddle bags,” inner and outer thighs and knees. It is an excellent complement to Cellulaze which is the first FDA approved procedure to permanently get rid of cellulite.

THE WEEKEND - July 2 - 8, 2014

Author Teaches Kids Importance Of Puppy Care By MARY AWAD

On July 9, local Glen Cove author Mariah Leal will be hosting a workshop at Bayville Public Library to talk about her series of children’s books, The Adventures of Piper. They revolve around a Bull Mastiff puppy named Piper as she is taken into her new home and learns how to live and interact with people and other animals. Leal writes to educate others about puppy training and socialization in order to promote fruitful training and handling of dogs. In the United States there are an estimated 4.7 million dog bites a year and half of them involve children; out of all the dogs that are put into shelters, 90% of them have had no training. Leal hopes to decrease these statistics. “When I began going through the research, I was astonished by the statistics,” said Leal. “Piper and I are really trying to spread the message and educate children so we can cut down on dog bites. We want to protect dogs and children so they can have well-behaved companions that won’t end up in shelters because people are getting frustrated with uneducated puppies.”

Mariah Leal will be at Bayville Library on July 9 & 16. After a car accident left Leal disabled and unable to return to work, she adopted Piper to act as her service dog and was inspired to combine her passion for writing and love of dogs to help people realize the importance of dog care within the home. She hopes that her workshop will educate both children and parents on the

significance of puppy socialization. “My first workshop was in Locust Valley and I was surprised with the amount of interaction and participation I got from the children. They were really great and I got great feedback from adults and children who love the book. We’re hoping to reach out to other libraries and schools to

educate people.” The Adventures of Piper is a series of five books and two have been released thus far: Piper Gets a New Home and Piper’s First Experiences. Leal has completed the other three books in the series and already started her next project, a book about Piper’s adult years where she tells children the benefits of owning a dog. “I want to show kids that there are a lot of positive aspects about owning a dog. Family activities, walks for charity, competitions, dog parks, there are so many ways that dogs can help people. Piper gave me a gift to be able to use my knowledge and experience to teach children about how great dogs are and how to take care of them.” Leal has lived in Glen Cove for the past 20 years and takes Piper to Morgan Park for some fresh air and exercise. She will be at Bayville Public Library on July 9 and again with Piper on July 16 at 2 p.m. Registration for the event is now open. For more information about the event, go to Bayville Library’s website at www. For more information on Leal and Piper, go to

| EDITORIAL Summer Starts When The Sky Is Lit While June 21 is considered the official start of summer, the real fun doesn’t kick off until bottle rockets, firecrackers, roman candles, sparklers and jumping jacks are lighting the night sky on July 4th, honoring the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 238 years ago. Rarely does it rain on July 4th (we’re having a hard time remembering when it did), which makes the night that much more sweet. You can step out your door and find a fireworks celebration almost anywhere in Nassau County. Sitting on the lawn or in a boat

on the water for the fireworks show over Oyster Bay Harbor, or heading to Morgan Park in Glen Cove marks a time-honored tradition of lounging around, forgetting about the work week ahead. The cotton candy and toy cart makes its way around the perimeter of the park, while the Good Humor and Mister Softee trucks sit nearby, giving the kids a bridge between the music and firework-filled sky. From kid smiles to adult “aaahhs,” Independence Day pushes families towards the heart of summer, one pop and sizzle at a time.

Great Summer Events In Nassau County Parks I am so very proud of our parks system and all we have to offer in our great county. This summer, we have an action-packed lineup. With a combination of quality entertainment and fun activities for the whole family, we look forward to seeing you out and about. Alongside my continued dedication to creating tourism, the incredible support we have received from local business sponsors has made bringing top-notch events to our residents at no additional cost, a great reality. Here’s a look at some upcoming happenings. Pack your lawn chair and mark your calendar, because we have some good old-fashioned entertainment in store. The month of July is going to be full. Beginning with a musical performance by Swingtime Big Band on Wednesday, July 2, we are kicking off quite a busy time. The following day, again stop by the Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre in Eisenhower Park to enjoy Mike DelGuidice and the Billy Joel Band. Both acts will hit the stage at 7 p.m. If it’s up to us, this Fourth of July is going to be one you are sure to remember. Starting at 10 a.m., the 1864 Independence Day Celebration will be flowing with music, dancing, trade demonstrations, speeches, a parade

EDWARD MANGANO and so much more to enjoy. We hope to see you all at Old Bethpage Village Restoration for the fun. If Friday’s festivities aren’t enough, grab the family and head to Lakeside Theatre on Saturday, July 5, for Neil Berg’s much-anticipated “100 Years of Broadway.” Like most of our musical performances, this must-see production is free of charge and will start at 7 p.m. The International Music Nights Concert Series is a great Nassau County tradition, with nearly two-dozen nights dedicated to music and culture that honor a range of ethnic groups. Celebrate Punjabi American Night on Sunday, July 6, German American Night on Monday, July 7 and Armenian American Night on Sunday, July 13, all beginning at 7 p.m. at Lakeside.

The Cole Brothers Circus comes to Eisenhower Park on Friday, July 11, through Sunday, July 13. Our busy calendar continues to unfold with a number of incredible music shows at 7 p.m. at Lakeside Theatre.. On Tuesday, July 8, see Jersey 4—a Tribute to Frankie Valli—and on Friday, July 11, check out Oldies Night with Jay Siegel’s Tokens. On Wednesday, July 9, South Bound will be entertaining audiences at Eisenhower Park’s Parking Field 6A beginning at noon, before Five Towns College Pops hit the stage at Muttontown Preserve’s Chelsea Mansion at 7 p.m. The Long Island International Film Expo (LIFE) will be taking place from Wednesday, July 9 through Thursday, July 17. Please contact Bellmore movies at 516-783-3199 or the Nassau

County Film Office at 516-571-3168 for more information. In the meantime, to help you get in the spirit, grab some popcorn and get comfy at Lakeside Theatre, on Thursday, July 10, for a showing of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. The film is set to start at dusk. Also, remember to clear your schedule the second weekend in July because the Cole Brothers Circus is coming to town. Shows will take place at Parking Field 6A of Eisenhower Park on Friday, July 11 at 5 and 8 p.m., as well as 2, 5 and 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Please visit www.nassaucountyny. gov/summer for more information on any of our summer events.

My Grandfather’s Last Thoughts Editor’s note: Michael Pevsner of Massapequa Park recently earned first place in Anton Community Newspapers and Cockpit USA’s essay contest about military heroes. Pevsner submitted the following essay about his grandfather, Private First Class Harold Hibler, who served in WWII, in the Army’s 101st Infantry. Hibler was a survivor of the Battle of the Bulge and received a Purple Heart for his actions. Hibler was discharged in 1945. He passed away on Aug. 23, 2008. My grandfather’s last thoughts could have been...of shrieking bullets overhead and seeing his young comrades so alive one moment, covered in blood the next during the Battle of the Bulge. It could have been leaving school at so early an age, taking any job to earn what wages he could to support his family during the Great Depression. It could have been of his private war with heart disease, finally succumbing after a valiant struggle. I hope, however, that my grandfather’s last thoughts were of the family he created and the loving legacy he left us all. Harold Hibler, PFC, was a man of integrity, hard work, and thrift. A decorated war hero who survived the Battle of the Bulge, went on to work his entire life, and still found time for his family. A man whose biggest desire in the world was to see his children and grandchildren receive the education that he did not have the chance to get, and to see them benefit from his lifetime of dedicated work. One who is remembered as a role model, a man whom I am proud to call my grandfather. One of my grandfather’s core values was hard work. As a child of the Depression, and a man who constantly worked from the age of 18, until he was 83, at jobs ranging from selling papers in the streets of Brooklyn, to owning a gas station supply shop in Queens. He held a serious work ethic in the highest regard, and that was not lost on me. He encouraged me to challenge myself and not waste a moment, goals I am reaching now by maintaining grades in four AP classes, working two jobs, and devoting countless hours of my time to my school’s Key Club; organizing events, collecting money for UNICEF, ringing the Salvation Army bell in December and running my

school’s Key Club website. All of these things gave my grandfather pride in me, and continue to give me pride in myself. My grandfather took me to work with him in Queens all of the time; more recently, he congratulated me on my first official job, at Massapequa News. Shortly after that, he called me from the hospital, while he had his own matters to deal with, to congratulate me on getting yet another job, at CVS. The last material object I showed my grandfather was my first pay stub from CVS. Never have I seen anyone smile as brightly. Another virtue my grandfather bestowed upon me was that of prudence. Again, as he was a child of the Depression-era, waste was not tolerable in his house. He firmly believed that one man’s refuse was another’s treasure, and on my own scavenger hunts through his basement, I have found vintage designer clothes, license plates, car parts, tools and even a portable record player, most of which he saved from the misfortune of spending eternity in a landfill. He was more resourceful than a Hollywood spy, and I inherited that sense. I have always followed after him in being careful not to throw away something that can be useful a second time, especially if that something can bring back memories or be resold as a collectible. One of my hobbies is collecting sneakers; my grandfather always wanted to see me sell a pair of rare sneakers for more than what I paid. Looking now at the values of some sneakers that I have accumulated, if I had the heart to part with a pair, I could do just that, turn my sneaker collection into an investment. Beyond that, among my most treasured possessions are random little journals and notebooks that my grandfather got as souvenirs from stores, business contacts, and promotions, each signed “love always”, that now house both memories of him and my written words spanning from the moment I was able to write, to present day. My grandfather was, and still is, a role model. The things I hold closest to my heart are the wealth of memories I have of him and the lessons and characteristics he passed on to me.

THE WEEKEND - JULY 2 - 8, 2014

HOROSCOPE By Holiday Mathis

WORD FIND Try r your luck ry

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s so much going on this week that you may feel as though maintaining your possessions just takes too much of your time. Do it anyway. Neat and clean environs reinforce the mindset that you’ve got your act together. Your responsible attitude makes you attractive and successful.

Solution: 9 Letters

© 2014 Australian Word Games Dist. by Creators Syndicate Inc.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your fantasy life is strong, and you could spend a good deal of energy building castles in the air. You can’t live in them, but some of the ideas are practical enough to apply once you touch back down to Earth. A healthy balance means allowing yourself to dream but commanding yourself to take practical steps, as well. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). This week shows you in an ambitious mood, and you’ll require much of yourself. Of course, it’s difficult to make big things happen if you are distracted by every enticement along the way. Because you’re after the larger experiences of life, you feel the need to bring your lower appetites into control. CANCER (June 22-July 22). This week you have something that really needs to be accomplished and a message to match the task. There will be no such thing as over-communicating it. To keep yourself and everyone around you on purpose, repeat yourself often. Find new ways to say it. With constant communication, you will get there.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Empowering talk leads to exciting developments in a relationship. Things really are getting better. Practice describing your experience, feelings and needs. Avoid claiming that another person is “driving you crazy” or “making you mad.” The more responsibility you can take for your own state the better off you’ll be. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The mightiest warrior knows that battling isn’t the only way to victory. Some of the best victories are handed over. Negotiation would be better in this week’s case, but if you must go to the mat, offer your opponent nothing to resist, and there won’t be much of a fight. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll gladly deliver good news. As for the bad news, you might leave it for someone else to tell — or not — hoping that by ignoring it, depriving it of your breath and attention, it will somehow disappear. Sometimes this method works! At least if you focus yourself on the positive there will be far less room for the negative. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll have a knack for speaking in the vernacular most appropriate to your company this week, and you’ll be around many types. There is a Malayan proverb that goes, “Trumpet in a herd of elephants; crow in the company of cocks; bleat in a flock of goats.” You’ll do it all! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The way you feel about a loved one is similar to the way you feel about music. You know there is meaning there, but the meaning is beyond words. Go ahead and try putting it into words anyway. Your loved one will benefit from knowing that your affections run deep. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re on the fast track. Creativity is flowing, and your social network is growing. Pretty soon you won’t be able to tell the difference between your business relationships and your social relationships. Pool resources with family, colleagues and friends. You’ll get there faster getting there together. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may feel somewhat depleted at the start of the week, but don’t worry. The well of joy inside you hasn’t dried up; it’s just that you can’t reach it with a broken rope. New tools are needed. Where will you find them? Almost anywhere you look. Your intention to be happy will lead to many fortuitous discoveries.

THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS Before you make any radical changes, ask yourself, “Is this something I can do for the rest of my life?” Permanent changes will be life enhancing, while committing to something short term will be more effort than it’s worth. An August business endeavor is a win as long as you don’t break your own investment rules. October brings a fortuitous meeting, and romance will sweep into your life. January endeavors require heart, faith and sweat, but they will be some of your best times this year. COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are devoted and true, and yet there is something inside you that is weary from doing the right thing. Being good doesn’t always feel good. You’ll start to wonder whether there’s such a thing as being too good. The malaise you feel is a sign that you need a break. Demand less of yourself this week.

It Doesn’t Have To Be An Unhappy Ending

Arnold Standard represents you before the NYS Workers' Compensation Board and/or US and NYS Department of Labor, to settle penalties which have been imposed --- for a fraction of the original amounts. Our work also includes performing a review of the circumstances prior to lodging the correct appeal. We achieve closure at the local level WITHOUT referral for FICA correction. Our initial consultation with you is conducted without any charge. New York State is going back up to SIX YEARS & assessing major penalties for the above subjects. This happens when you have classified people as Independent Contractors & individuals have been treated as self-employed, or there has been a lapse in coverage. Frequently, there are minimum wage and/or overtime considerations because of time and attendance record keeping errors. We manage the entire process from field audit through the appeal phase with the Department. Our record in this area is excellent, and there is no upfront cost, because we are only paid after we save you money.

A fellow in his late 50s, a successful salesman in the medical-equipment field, stopped by my office recently to discuss addiction. He has been reading my columns on the topic, and wanted to share some thoughts. He is an alcoholic who has been sober for several decades, and now works with others trying to beat addictions, most commonly, heroin. “The story is always the same,” he said, nodding his head knowingly. “Always the same.” By that, he means how people become addicts to substances ranging from alcohol to opiates and what they do to deny it, hide it and ultimately get in deeper and deeper. Listen to the stories of addicts, he said, and whether it’s a Hollywood star who gulps Grey Goose from a water bottle or a suburban kid copping oxycontin out of medicine cabinets, the trajectory of the tragedy is always the same. Then, there comes a point where some addicts get clean and many don’t. Here, all of the stories aren’t the same. Sometimes, with luck, the parents can step in, and after trying everything, try yet something else. And it works. Add in support from people like my sober salesman, and the story doesn’t have to end in tears. Here’s one such story from a local mom: As a parent of a heroin addict, I have been following with great interest your series on addiction. The disease of addiction is very insidious. It starts out slowly and then takes over every facet of the addict’s life and the family’s life as well. Our family went through many years of pain and suffering. I don’t think that words can describe the helplessness that one feels as they watch a loved one self-destruct. As a family unit we went to all of the family components of every rehab that my child was involved in—the words can be helpful, but if the actions of the addict don’t change, you still have that feeling of helplessness. Unfortunately, our society looks at addiction as if it should be controlled by the addict—as if they can willingly just turn off that switch that makes them use and become healed. People you think of as friends don’t give you the same comfort they would were your child suffering from cancer, diabetes or any other disease. “You, the addict, should fix it yourself.” Our insurance companies think that patients should be cured after

From Editor


JOHN OWENS three or four days of detox. They won’t pay for extended care, and unless the family has thousands and thousands of dollars to pay for their loved one’s care, with no guarantee of a cure, you are on your own. There is a twofold problem with most of the rehab facilities in the New York: They all seem primarily concerned about the financial aspect of the case, and most of the programs are rather punitive in nature. After a particularly bad run, I took my son to a facility in North Palm Beach, Fla. Their whole approach to the addict is so different from anything I have seen in New York. They are genuinely concerned with the addict’s recovery. The clients live in an apartment and are responsible for taking care of cooking, cleaning and such. In addition to therapy sessions, they go to outside Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and are encouraged to get a sponsor. They have an opportunity to meet many sober people. They also do extracurricular activities, such as going to the gym, movies and bowling. They get to see and live a sober life. This can only be accomplished with the client’s willingness to do step work and participate in these groups. After 90 days there, my son came home a changed person. He is actively involved in AA, this includes working the steps. He has made many new sober friends. He is now clean almost eight months. I applaud your efforts to bring attention to this terrible disease. I want to let people know that there can be a light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you. This is a story worth sharing. Any other readers who have a story to share, please email it to me. Your insights and experiences are important. And your anonymity is assured.

Leaf Blower Flap Isn’t Just About Noise For over 40 years, gas-powered leaf blowers have been a focal point for irritation and frustration over neighborhood noise. The issue is percolating up all over the country again, and now it’s also about swallowing doody. Gas-powered leaf blowers aren’t the only gardening and landscaping apparatus that use loud two-stroke engines (it takes two piston movements to complete one cycle of combustion), but it’s pretty easy to understand what lawn mowers and chainsaws do and why they are used. The purpose, efficiency and effectiveness as a gardening tool of using powerful blowers on a typical 50by-100-foot property is more mysterious. Even the phrase “leaf blowers” is a misnomer. They don’t blow just leaves. They blow everything that’s on and in and around your lawn into the air, where it lingers for hours until it settles onto the neighbor’s car and their kids’ faces. Mold, pollen, seeds, little rocks, dead bugs, live ticks, it’s all launched at high speed. The polite word for it is “fugitive dust,” but on the street we call it “rodent feces,” and worse. In two-stroke engines, fuel is mixed with oil for lubrication, and about 30 percent of the mixture goes unburned and gets spewed out. That smell in the air after the gardener leaves is a mix of

MICHAEL A. MILLER carbon monoxide, nitrous oxides and various carcinogenic hydrocarbons. In late 2011, a study by Edmunds. com, the auto information site, found that the hydrocarbon emissions from half an hour of yard work with a two-stroke Echo leaf blower generated about the same carbon monoxide and non-methane hydrocarbon emissions as driving the 3,900 miles from Texas to Alaska in a 6,200-pound Ford Raptor. We know a lot more now than we did 10 and 20 years ago about allergies, asthma and the dangers of extended exposure to very fine particulate matter, which can penetrate deep into lungs, enter the bloodstream and harm the heart and other organs. This isn’t a joke. The noise is a problem, especially for people with limited mobility who

One East End landscaper told the East Hampton Star that banning or regulating blowers was “the stupidest idea…If they don’t like the noise and people making a living…people should leave town and go somewhere where they don’t have leaves or people to bother.” The Washington State Capitol in can’t easily escape, or for the mother Olympia sits in a 290-acre park, from who finally got an infant to sleep. which work crews clear 80 tons (180 Leaf blower noise seems particularly dump truck loads) of leaves annually. jarring, especially throttling up, and It’s a big space.

SLIRR Commuters Have Ways To Survive Strike Eye on

the Island

MIKE BARRY Recognizing a strike which impacted commuters effective Sunday, July 20, would inflict insufficient mayhem, the Long Island Rail Road’s (LIRR) union leaders want their prospective work stoppage pushed back to September. This comes as no surprise. But I was astonished to see the four U.S. House Members who represent Nassau County — Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford), Rep. Steve Israel (D-Huntington), Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-Mineola) and Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-St. Albans) — agreed with the LIRR’s union leaders while invoking an absurd cover story: the fate of Long Island’s summer tourism industry. “We encourage the MTA [Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the LIRR’s parent] to accept a proposal from the involved employee labor unions to extend the current ‘cooling

off’ period for an additional 60 days,” stated a June 19 letter to MTA chairman and CEO Thomas Prendergast, which was signed by the aforementioned U.S. House Members, and six others, from downstate New York. The correspondence is posted at, and goes on to say “we are concerned about the


effect that any potential work stoppage [in July 2014] could have on Long Island tourism, as the LIRR is a vital means of transportation to the East End and other destinations during the peak tourism season in the summer months.” True enough. Yet if you asked typical LIRR daily commuters whether they could more easily withstand a July LIRR strike, as compared to one in September, I daresay 90-plus percent of commuters would want a LIRR strike to occur in July. It is an easier time of year to take vacation, their children are on summer break, and the roadways are less clogged because neither school buses nor teachers are making the trips they take between September and June. To its credit, the LIRR’s Commuter Council, an entity created by the state legislature, began distributing pamphlets to LIRR riders at Penn Station in late June, offering guidance on how to prepare for a July strike. Meanwhile, the LIRR’s unions have the downstate Congressional delegation and two separate Obama administration-appointed panels backing them, even though the recommendations of those presidential nominees were non-binding, whereas the MTA’s labor negotiators are fending for themselves at the moment. The MTA has remained too silent throughout these proceedings, and could learn something from The Metropolitan Opera, which is currently in the midst of contract negotiations with 15 of the 16 unions representing employees that work at the Met. In a full-page New York Times advertisement (June 20), the Met’s executive committee explained how work rules forged in a different era are today financially unsustainable, and draining the institution’s resources. One example the Met

LIRR brass at a recent event promoting summer travel. If a strike comes, would it be better now, or in September? cited in its ad: the orchestra receives 16 weeks (yes, 16) of annual paid vacation. I’m sure comparable, unjustifiable expenditures are set into motion by the LIRR’s work rules. The MTA should take a full-page advertisement in a major daily newspaper and explain clearly some of the LIRR’s antiquated work rules to the public. LIRR commuters do, however, have weapons in 2014 that were not at their disposal in 1994, the last time the LIRR’s unions walked off the job. The first are the dramatic technological advances that have been made in the workplace. Given a laptop and an iPhone, most people can conduct business almost anywhere and, while they may miss face-to-face contact with colleagues and customers, a LIRR strike in 2014 is a major inconvenience as opposed to an event that can cripple the economy. The last 20 years have also brought widespread business continuity improvements made in the wake of 9-11, and Superstorm Sandy, times when New York City offices were either closed or inaccessible for extended periods of time. Should a LIRR strike occur, and continue for weeks, or even months, you’ll see city-based businesses rent space in either Nassau or Suffolk to accommodate their Long Island employees. Indeed, rather than shutting down the Island, a prolonged LIRR strike could boost to its commercial real estate market.

THE WEEKEND - JULY 2 - 8, 2014

Nassau’s Invisible Immigrant Community Most Long Islanders don’t think about Belmont Park beyond the annual Belmont Stakes. But look closely, and you will see that year in year out, the track is a very active and important economic force. Belmont Park has been part of the Long Island community since 1905. The grounds reside partially within Floral Park and Elmont, overlapping slightly into Queens. It typically holds nine or 10 races each day, Wednesday through Sunday. It’s a major part of the economy not just for those towns, but also for Long Island as a whole. Its economic contribution rests largely on the shoulders of an invisible group of men and women — nearly all of whom are immigrants. In racing parlance they are known as “backstretch” employees. These people perform essential jobs related to the care of the horses, including grooming, feeding and exercising. At Belmont Park, there are approximately 2,000 backstretch workers, most of whom live on the park grounds, according to Paul Ruchames, executive director for Backstretch Employee Service Team (BEST) of New York, a non-profit that provides health care and other services to the workers. “The horse racing world, which generates hundreds of millions of dollars, would not exist or it would be very tiny in New York without these workers,” said Ruchames. Despite their critical role in Long Island’s economy, there is little integration between the backstretch workers and the local community. Part of the reason is that the vast majority of workers live in dormitories on the grounds. Some have children who go to the local schools. Some take second jobs at the car wash or deli nearby. Most, according to Ruchames, “keep a low profile.” Life on the backstretch starts at 4 a.m. and ends around 11 a.m. Nearly all of the jobs these workers perform are physically demanding. “One is called a hot walker, who walks the horse before and after exercise,” said Ruchames. “Then there is an exercise rider.” There’s also the groom, who Ruchames said is the secret behind each horse. It is the groom who has the best gauge of the horse’s health and condition. “The groom bandages and takes care of the horse,” he said. “The groom knows the psychology of the horse. He knows his eating habits and sleeping habits.” All of these jobs require the men and women to be outside and exposed

MARYANN SLUTSKY to the elements for hours at a time. And there’s always the risk of being kicked or thrown by animals weighing well over a thousand pounds. “There’s a lot of shoveling,” said Ruchames, “and restraining the horse takes a lot of strength.” The immigrants performing these jobs accept these risks. Most come from rural villages in Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala — many from the same village or neighborhood. A good portion has had exposure to, if not hands-on experience, working with farm animals. For some, it’s a family tradition. Despite the hard labor, one thing is clear to Ruchames: The backstretch workers have a tremendous work ethic and truly love what they do. “They come to have relationships with the horses,” he said. Think of the bond people have with their pet, he said, “Now imagine that it’s your job, eight hours a day, working with your pet. Your pet runs a race — and wins!” Love or not, these are the proverbial jobs Americans simply won’t do. Ruchames said when trainers advertise openings, they get few, if any, responses from American-born workers. In the past, backstretch workers were African-Americans. Now, the role falls mainly to immigrants. Today’s backstretch workers are hired by the horse trainers, and brought to the U.S. on H2-B visas, like farmworkers. BEST was established in 1989 by people who had these working conditions in mind. “It was originally started just to handle drug and alcohol problems,” said Ruchames. “About seven years ago, it expanded the mission to include health care.” Largely funded by New York Racing Association (NYRA) and the New York Thoroughbred Horseman’s Association, BEST helps subsidize the workers’ health care costs, as well as provides alcohol and substance abuse counseling, psychological counseling and prescription medical assistance. It also established an on-site medical facility that offers primary care, chiropractic services, acupuncture and other treatments.

Dr. Fred Cogan, primary physician at the BEST Backstretch Clinic, said that he sees ailments related to the grueling outdoor work, and notices similarities with those in law enforcement, where long-term exposure to the elements is common. Cogan tries to ensure basic preventative care, such as routine blood tests and annual physicals, as well as immunizations. Planned Parenthood comes by once a month to offer their services. The benefit of the program goes beyond the backstretch. Over a five-year period, Ruchames said, “We saved the local community over $2 million in health care costs by what we are doing here. People who are going to our medical facility are not going to the emergency room.” Backstretch workers also receive childcare through the Belmont Child Care Association, popularly known as Anna House in honor of Anna Cordero, the late wife of Hall-of-Fame jockey Angel Cordero. Anna House is open from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. to accommodate the workers’ schedule.

Top: Paul Ruchames, executive director for Backstretch Employee Service Team (BEST) of New York Bottom: A mural vividly portrays track — and backstretch — life. There’s also an on-site chaplaincy run by a separate non-profit called the Racetrack Chaplaincy of America N.Y. But non-profit organizations can do only so much. The passing of comprehensive immigration reform would be a game-changer for backstretch workers. For example, they would be able to reap the benefits of taxes they pay. The workers pay into Social Security, but rarely see the benefit because many ultimately move back to their country. We’re ready to wager that immigration reform would bring a better future for these workers — and for Long Island.

One concept that addresses many of Long Island’s economic and social needs is “transit-oriented development.” It should become a prominent focal point in this election season, as Long Islanders discuss our future ambitions. Transit-oriented development (TOD) refers to any development — housing, office, retail or any combination of them — located adjacent to transit stations (for us, the Long Island Rail Road). What’s especially impressive is the number of priority needs it addresses on Long Island. From an economic standpoint, we need to grow job opportunities, and TOD provides settings for office and retail jobs, as well as housing. We need to increase our population, in order to expand our economy and reduce the individual tax burden, and TOD enables higher-density growth without impacting less commercial areas. We need to provide more varieties of housing — smaller units and more rental options that appeal to young people as well as those looking to down-size from larger homes — and TOD can accommodate those varieties as well. From an environmental standpoint, we need to preserve our open space and the suburban lifestyle for which Long Island is renowned; we need to reduce our reliance on cars, and we need to be more creative in how we address our parking needs, so that we eliminate the growing blight of cars spreading out from transit stations in all directions. Transit-oriented development can accomplish all of that and more. For a look at innovative approaches to parking, for instance, see the Long Island Index’s ParkingPlus Design Challenge. From the standpoint of increasing innovation, we need to better link our centers of innovation — our universities, research centers and business incubators — and the people who work at them. We need to provide enhanced downtowns offering the mix of housing, entertainment, workspace and transit access that young people seek. We need to provide more options for reverse-commuting so that the talent and businesses we want to attract will move to Long Island rather than to Westchester County, southern Connecticut or northern


NANCY RAUCH DOUZINAS New Jersey — nearby locations where reverse-commuting is so much easier and economic growth is far surpassing Long Island’s. Again, transit-oriented development can support all of that. The good news for Long Island is that crucial resources needed to expand TOD are already in place. First, we have the Long Island Rail Road and its 124 stations. Local communities will have to decide for themselves whether they want transit-oriented development and on what terms, but many larger communities do — for any number of the reasons cited above. Second, we have the space. There are more than 4,000 acres of surface parking lots in and around Long Island’s downtowns, and that space can be far more creatively imagined and effectively used. Think what a difference it would make if that space was contributing to Long Island’s economy in innovative ways while offering even more parking. That’s the reality of what’s possible, as the ParkingPlus Design Challenge reveals. Third, we have the access that transit provides to all parts of Greater New York City, the business capital of the world, and we need to put that access to greater use for Long Island. Election season is upon us and will be escalating as we approach November. Long Islanders should ask candidates for office what they will do to enhance transit-oriented development. It’s time for those candidates to hear that we are tired of watching the jobs that we need go to those other nearby locations. We need transit-oriented development and the economic growth that goes with it. It’s time for Long Island to get more TOD. Nancy Rauch Douzinas is president of the Garden City-based Rauch Foundation.

Eating Healthy On Independence Day By OYSTER BAY’S OWN CHEF ALAN ZOX, PH.D In the United States, July 4th represents the founding of our nation and the holiday Americans recognize as their Independence Day. This remarkable event first took hold on July 2, 1776 when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence first proposed by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia. After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, explaining its decision which finally was approved on July 4th. Historians argue over whether it was actually signed then or a month later. But in either case, the American experience

Mexican Corn On The Cob Serves 12-24

Cut or break 12 ears in half. Pull the stalk off the cob and roast the ears of corn on a very hot grill about 1 1/2 minutes per side until somewhat blackened — turn 3 times. Remove from the grill and brush a light covering of Hellman’s Mayonnaise on each ear. Coat with shredded Parmesan cheese on all sides. Lightly season each ear with chili powder and smoked paprika. Finish by squeezing juice of 1⁄4 lime per ear. Insert a wooden stick in each end or eat by holding corn with aluminum foil. Very tasty, so you may want to prepare more. And by the way, sodium is not required.

Homemade Tomato Salsa & Chips Serves 12-18 people

Blend two 15-ounce cans of plum tomatoes — pulse 2-3 times leaving somewhat chunky. Add 1/2 cup diced Vidalia onion with one diced jalapeño, removing seeds and pith first. Add juice of 1 lime and 2 tablespoons traditional rice wine vinegar. Briefly pulse the blender one more time. Add sea salt and fresh black pepper to taste and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne to taste. Have plenty of taco chips on hand. Homemade salsa is hard to resist. Either use fresh corn tortillas sliced into eighths or 3-4 large bags of chips.

for themselves or their place of origin. Virtually all of us came from somewhere else that defines who we are and how we got here. Most of us define ourselves by both our country of origin and by our newly adopted homeland. I promise this won’t be your run of the mill enchilada or quesadilla at your favorite cafe. Nor will it do justice to all of the cultures and celebrations that other Americans value. But it begins to reflect the range of people who call themselves Americans and who value the constitutional freedoms that July 4th represents.

Picnic Menu continues to symbolize freedom in the 21st Century as most eloquently proposed by Thomas Jefferson and the framers of the Constitution. And what a remarkable event it was for Americans and others who value

Poblanos Stuffed With Shredded Chicken (also called Chiles En Nogada) Serves 12 stuffed whole chiles or 24 stuffed chile halves

Roast 12 poblano chiles at 425F for 20 minutes; turn once and roast an additional 25 minutes. Remove and steam by placing a towel over chiles. Cut a thin slice in each chile from stem to end to enable stuffing. Peel and remove the seeds under warm water. Roasting and peeling enhances the flavor dramatically. It’s okay if some parts are blackened more than others. When finished, place each whole chile in a large casserole dish ready to be stuffed. Next roast 5 large chicken breasts at 350F. Lightly season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Insert 1/2 tablespoon of butter under the skin of each breast. Roast for 45-60 minutes and remove from oven. Chicken is done at 165 F or when chicken is white, not pink, but still juicy. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Cut the breasts off their bones and shred or pull apart by using two forks — not unlike “pulled pork.” Place all shredded chicken with skin removed into a large bowl. Add a picadillo mixture consisting of 1/4 cup currents or chopped raisins, 1/4 cup toasted and chopped walnuts, 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro. Mix all together. Carefully fill roasted poblanos with the picadillo mixture. If chiles are torn, merely borrow a piece from one of the others and place on top of the torn chile.

freedom and independence throughout the world. Here in the United States there are millions of new citizens and others who wish to become so who view the American experience as no less special

Lastly, pour one 8-ounce can of evaporated milk and 1 tablespoon of sugar into a small saucepan. Heat until sugar dissolves. When ready to serve, reheat chiles for 10 minutes at 400F; remove and pour evaporated milk over chiles. Place a small handful of red pomegranate seeds without the pith over all chiles, which now have the colors of the Mexican flag — red, white and green. Very festive, no? To serve smaller portions of Chiles en Nogada, cut the chiles in half with an 8-inch wide piece of aluminum foil underneath. Fill each half with the chicken picadillo. Pour the evaporated milk over the top with a small handful of pomegranate seeds. Wrap the stuffed chile and stuffing with the foil, reheat and serve.

Bluefish And Halibut Seafood Skewers Marinate a couple of pounds of skinless bluefish and halibut chunks — cut each into 2-inch chunks in size. Soak your skewers in water for 10 minutes so they don’t catch fire. Marinate with 1/4 cup each of light soy, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, juice and zest of 1 whole lime; and 2 tablespoons canola oil. Mix and pour over fish and vegetables for 15 - 20 minutes in a large bowl. Finally, skewer with alternating pieces of Vidalia onion, green peppers, and 2-inch square chunks of bluefish and halibut. Grill the skewers for 1 minute on each of two sides. Remove and stuff hot dog buns with the mixture

To remove each pop from the cup submerge the bottom 2/3 of the cup in hot water for about five seconds, holding the cup with one hand pull the stick slowly to easily remove the cup for a quenching, healthy delight.

Getting Ready To March Since 1991, Louis Pillari, director of the Oyster Bay Funeral Home, and his wife, Corinna, have welcomed marchers in the annual Memorial Day parade with coffee and donuts to help kick off the parade. Veterans, firemen, school children and sports clubs gather at the top of South Street as they get ready to march down the street to Ships Point Lane and then on to the Derby-Hall Bandstand. The funeral home also offers water and chairs for viewing the parade. (Photos by Palma Douglass)

Cruise Night: Island-Wide Attraction By MARY AWAD

Billy Joel’s music filled the street last Tuesday, June 23 as the weekly Cruise Night was once again underway. The tents were up and people filled the streets for another fun evening of cars, food, and music. Cruise Night is one of Oyster Bay's biggest summer events and attracts locals and people from across the island. Ashley Winthrop of Commack and Colleen McCadden of Patchogue were in attendance and drove all the way to Oyster Bay just to see the luxury cars. “My dad is really into cars, so we drive down here some nights during the summer and walk around together,” said Winthrop. “We go to a lot of car shows, like the one in Northport, so we came down here to check this one out.” Driving to Oyster Bay’s Cruise Night seems to be a tradition for many outside of Oyster Bay. Car owners and pedestrians from areas like Massapequa, Northport, and Hauppauge come to Audrey Avenue to enjoy the night.

Ashley Winthrop of Commack and Colleen McCadden of Patchogue came to see the luxury cars. “This is probably my third or fourth time coming here,” commented Winthrop. “I like how it’s small but you can still see a lot of different cars.”

Cruise Night provides an opportunity to showcase all types of cars, which attracts people to Oyster Bay from all over Long Island. (Photos by Mary Awad) Cruise Night takes place on Audrey Avenue every Tuesday in the summer from 5:45 to 9 p.m. and is a night for all Long Islanders to see Oyster Bay

and take in the town’s cars, food and atmosphere. For more information, go to go to cruise-night.html.



New Animal Abuse Registry

Nassau County Legislator Donald MacKenzie, joined by his colleagues in the legislature and the Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NCSPCA), announced the creation of a registry that will prevent people convicted of animal abuse in the county from adopting pets from shelters or stores. The legislation was approved by the legislature with unanimous support from both parties. The legislation will establish an on-line registry of individuals convicted of animal-abuse and prevent those people from purchasing animals in Nassau County. “I thank everyone for coming together to get this done,” said MacKenzie. “It is important that we prevent people who abuse animals from continuing to do so.” “Animal abuse will not be tolerated in Nassau County,” said County Executive Ed Mangano. “Nassau County is leading the nation in protecting animals from abuse by creating an online registry that will help prevent people convicted of animal abuse from adopting and

purchasing pets from shelters or stores.” The legislation requires anyone over 18 convicted of animal abuse to register with for the Nassau County Animal Abuse Registry at the Nassau County Police Department. The contact information and a photograph of the individual will be maintained on the registry. Any person in Nassau County who wishes to adopt or purchase a pet from an animal shelter or pet dealer will have to provide photo identification, which will then be checked with the registry. Persons appearing on the registry will not be allowed to purchase animals. Concerned members of the public will also be allowed to sign up for email notifications for updates and additions to the registry.

Virtue, Valor Meet At All-Star Game By ENTERPRISE-PILOT STAFF

On Saturday, June 21, Glen Cove High School’s Maiden Field hosted the inaugural Dan Daly Cup High School All-Star Lacrosse game, honoring the legacy of U.S. Marine Sgt. Maj. Dan Daly, a two-time Medal of Honor recipient. Sponsored by the U.S. Marine Corps, in partnership with the Nassau County Lacrosse Coaches Association, the New York Lizards professional lacrosse team, the City of Glen Cove and the Glen Cove School District, the game featured 50 of Nassau and Suffolk’s elite high school lacrosse players. Ryan Hauser from Oyster Bay High School and Pierce Dellafera from Friends Academy represented their high schools, as did Glen Cove High School lacrosse players Philip Grella and Sean Peet, who participated in the game as members of Nassau’s Team Virtue squad. Despite an admirable comeback by team Virtue, the Suffolk squad –Team Valor– prevailed in the game, 14-8. Leading up to the game, players from both squads participated in intense, military-style physical fitness warm-up drills led by local Marines, who also conducted seminars that instilled pride, emphasized teamwork and addressed community responsibility. Lizards coaches also shared their professional lacrosse expertise with members of both teams. Earlier in the day, the City of Glen Cove and the Marines rededicated the current plaque bearing Sgt. Maj. Daly’s name at Glen Cove’s Monument Park. The U.S. Marine Corps Band, who also performed

Glen Cove High School lacrosse player Sean Peet on the field before the game along with the GCHS Select Choir, led a parade along Dosoris Lane. Additionally, the Marines presented a special framed lacrosse jersey to the Pedone family, honoring the late Nicholas Pedone, a Glen Cove youngster who lost his battle with a rare form of cancer. Descendants of Sgt. Maj. Daly, including his grand niece, were on hand for the rededication and the game. Sgt. Maj. Daly was a two-time Medal of Honor recipient during the early 1900s and is one of the Marine Corps’ most admired heroes. Marines of all occupational specialties respect his legend and fighting spirit to this day.
