Teaching Speeders A Lesson BY STEVE MOSCO

School zone speedsters face a new round of surviellance in the state’s effort to thwart their reckless ways. Governor Andrew Cuomo traveled to Bethpage High School recently to sign legislation that authorizes the addition of school speed zone cameras in Nassau and Suffolk counties. According to proponents, the new law aims to enhance the safety of children, pedestrians and drivers in school areas by encouraging drivers to travel with caution, as well as support law enforcement efforts to crack down on violators and prevent accidents caused by speeding.

Plainview Pair Joins Israeli Cause

Officials honored 10 local youngsters with scholarships.

Local residents are helping to highlight Israel’s strength in hospitals and contributions to the good of humanity. Plainview residents Alice Bruno, vice president of communications of Tobay Hadassah, and Linda Hillel, co-president of Tobay Hadassah, are part of a global group of women working to raise money to support Israel’s Hadassah Medical Center. “Hadassah was founded in 1912 in Brooklyn, New York by a woman named Henrietta Szold,” said Bruno. “It started as a Zionist organization — which it still is — but our main focus is Hadassah Hospital in Israel, for which we are a support group. As an organization, our donations go towards the hospital because it isn’t government’s a private hospital, and many major innovations in medicine come out of Hadassah Hospital that the entire world utilizes.” Hillel went into the history of Henrietta Szold and her efforts that gave birth to both Hadassah and the legacy of hope it would become in Israel.

Bethpage Resident’s Dream Granted BY HERALD STAFF

The crew helped grant the wish of a 91-year-old Bethpage resident.

As part of their Senior Dreams Come True program to grant wishes to Long Island residents in need, the lawyers and staff at Genser Dubow Genser & Cona got down and dirty to restore a long neglected yard in Bethpage for the homeowner, 91-yearold Elizabeth Schroeder, who suffers from Alzheimer’s. When Schroeder’s daughter Joan saw an article featuring the GDGC program, she was anxious to get help for her mom so she could remain in the small cape cod home in Bethpage where she has lived for 62 years. “Unfortunately, I have been unable to handle or afford the necessary care for the property,” said Joan. “My mom always relished sitting in her front and back yard, feeding the birds.” Joan reached out to local congressmen, Boy Scouts, schools and others seeking help but to no avail. “With the amazing donation by GDGC, my mom will now be able to return to the outside of her home


safely and watch her new 7-monthold great granddaughter playing in the yard like I did as a child.” Elizabeth has 3 children and 13 great grandchildren. To accomplish this monumental task, GDGC engaged Morningstar Tree Company to excavate and remove an old metal shed, bushes and assorted rubble. Several weeks before the GDGC staff got together with their rakes, pick

axes, and pitchforks to dig up the vines, ivy and even stone and bricks buried under the dirt, a GDGC partner put down weed killer to start the job. “Our team is gratified to make a difference in our community by helping one senior in need at a time,” said Jennifer Cona, managing partner, GDGC. “We love hands-on projects and this yard clean-up was right up our alley giving us a

sense of accomplishment unique to working with our hands. Even though Elizabeth Schroeder has Alzheimer’s, we know she will enjoy her new yard so she can be in the fresh air and sunshine.” Applicants must be 65 or over with an income limit of no more than $1,500 a month for a single person and $2,000 a month for a married couple. Applicants are required to send a letter or statement under 750 words describing their wish and documenting how they have contributed to society in some way. To obtain a “wish request” form and application, go to the GDGC website at or call Janet Russell at 631-390-5000 for more information. Senior Dreams Come True is also seeking donations to help raise funds to grant wishes. Donations are tax-deductible under 501(c)(3) of the tax code.

AWARD from page 1 Venditto and the Eslicks honored Seri because the young adult has “spent the best years of her life doing what she does best, helping others.” Seri is an ongoing member of the Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School Community Service Club, participating in benefits hosted by the club, including the Senior Citizen Prom and an event that featured writing holiday cards to soldiers abroad. “At the high school’s college fairs, Jordyn has acted as a student ambassador where she helped greet admissions representatives and guide them to where they could sing in and set up their booths,” said a Kids Helping Kids by Kids Way, Inc. spokesperson. “In addition to this, Jordyn has tutored middle school students free of charge in order to help them with organizational skills, time-management and studying tips.” Seri was also honored for her involvment in the Environmental Club where she helped recycle bins of plastic bottles, as well as her participation in a program called

Dogability, where she acted as a mediator between children with mental or physical disorders and trained therapy dogs. “It is because of Jordyn’s strong drive to help others, that the Town of Oyster Bay is proud to recognize Jordyn as a 2014 ‘Kid of

Distinction,’” said Venditto. The winners were selected by the Kids Helping Kids organization, which established a committee to judge a record number of applications that they received for the 10 year anniversary of the program.

“This program is very much geared towards recognizing activities done on a youngster’s own initiative,” Robert Eslick said. “We are recognizing kids who participate in activities for the benefit of their community of neighborhood, outside of school-related activities.” Venditto said these young people will serve as great role models for the next generation of community-minded kids. “There are many young individuals who have contributed to the great quality of life we enjoy here in the Town of Oyster Bay. We felt it was important to recognize our young residents who involve themselves in voluntary community, charity or civic activities on their own individual initiative,” said Venditto. “This provides a perfect opportunity for them to be recognized for their outstanding achievements. They will surely stand as role models for their peers.”

Cuomo discusses speed zone cameras at Bethpage High School.

SPEEDERS from page 1 “New York State will not tolerate drivers who exercise reckless behavior and put other people at risk — especially around our schools,” Cuomo said. “By empowering Nassau and Suffolk Counties to install dozens of speed cameras in school zones, we are helping to protect our students and ultimately save lives. This should send a message to all drivers — slow down and obey the speed limit, especially when passing by a school.” The new law means more drivers will likely be nabbed for exceeding the speed limit, and while some residents believe it’s a necessary price to pay to save lives, some feel it is an unfair use of technology against otherwise law-abidding citizens. Scott Grann has lived on Round Swamp Round in Old Bethpage for close to 20 years. In that time, he said he has seen and heard many drivers burning rubber in front of Old Bethpage Elementary School, just steps from his house. “People drive like animals down this road,” he said, adding that he hopes cameras will deter high-speed driving. “It’s beyond people just going a touch over the speed limit. Trucks driving to the expressway from Farmingdale come barreling down the road, right past the school,

going at least 50. They don’t care.” But not all residents are happy about the timing of the governor’s new law. Camille Toma, a member of the Farmingdale PTA, said that residents have been complaining about people speeding down Conklin and Rt. 24 for years. “If he really cared then he should have done something when people were complaining,” Toma said. “I

scene. The law enables speed cameras to be placed in up to 56 school speed zones in Nassau County. According to data released by the governor’s office, there is a 70 percent chance that a child hit by a vehicle going 40 mph will be killed, but a child hit by a vehicle traveling at 30 mph has an 80 percent chance of surviving. Officials said implementing speed cameras in school speed zones will supplement police presence on the streets in catching speeding violations and preventing the accidents that arise from speeding. Aside from catching drivers in the act, officials said the presence of speed enforcement cameras will also encourage drivers to proceed with caution through school speed zones, thus enhancing the safety of children, pedestrians and drivers alike. “A school zone safety report indicates 200 motorists per hour exceeded the posted limit by 25mph,” said Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano. “I thank Governor Cuomo for approving this pilot program as it protects our children and serves as an important message to motorists to exercise care in our school zones.”

think the Governor is capitalizing on our tragedy to try and garner some sort of favor... I think it’s disgusting.” The new law, which will take effect in 30 days, authorizes Nassau and Suffolk counties to establish a pilot program with speed cameras in school speed zones — one per school district — to record speeding violations as they occur, without requiring a police officer to be present at the

| NEWS BRIEFS DEC Warns Homeowners

Volunteers Commended

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) urges residents to use caution when contractors offer to provide free fill materials for use in leveling or grading of their residential properties to avoid being victimized by illegal solid waste dumping Homeowners should be skeptical and ask tough questions when a contractor offers to provide fill material at no charge. The ‘clean fill’ often ends up being solid waste and homeowners could find their properties burdened with contaminated material. DEC suggests homeowners seeking to obtain suitable fill to do the following: Notify the DEC Regional Office and the local town clerk in writing, in accordance with the regulation 6NYCRR Section 360-8.6(b), at least 30 days prior to undertaking any grade adjustment project; Identify where the materials are coming from; Ensure that the contractor is

Susan Maxwell, director of the Nassau County Empire Games for the Physically Challenged, Gordon Ryan, founder, along with the 30 year volunteers who have been of service to the games were recently commended. With the support of private-sector donations, County Executive Mangano began saving the Games in 2011 after New York State eliminated funding for them. The games take place at Mitchel Athletic Complex and Nassau Community College. Athletes compete in track, field, slalom, swimming, wheelchair basketball table tennis, archery, and more for no cost. “Before the start of the ceremonies, I was grateful to meet the people behind the scenes of the Games,” said County Executive Mangano. “I am so grateful for their assistance and for their continued support. I look forward to continuing to work together to continue the Nassau County Empire Games for the Physically Challenged in 2015.”

licensed by a government authority; Ensure that the materials are free of any regulated wastes such as asbestos, drywall, plaster, roofing materials, wood, metal, tiles, paint chips, ash, slag, coal, pieces of particle boards, carpet, petroleum-contaminated soil and other contaminated materials. The most effective way

homeowners can protect themselves is by taking steps to prevent being victimized. Once contaminated soil is placed on a property and graded, the process of removal becomes costly and difficult. For details, contact DEC’s Office of Materials Management at 631-444-0375.

CAUSE from page 1 “Henrietta Szold and her friends were lovers of their Jewish faith, and they wanted to do something meaningful in regards to it,” she said. “She traveled to Israel — before it was actually a country — and saw the hard conditions there and that healthcare was almost non-existent at the time. She came back to New York and got her little knitting club together, formed Hadassah and raised enough money to send a few nurses over to Israel to help out. As time went on, Hadassah raised more and more money, sent more and more personnel, equipment, and eventually funded the construction of the hospitals, the first of which was completed in 1939.” Hadassah Medical Center has two hospitals; one at Ein Kerem and the other at Mount Scopus in Jerusalem. Among the medical breakthroughs they have brought about, Bruno said, are stem cell and macular degeneration research, Parkinson’s disease, immunology and more. Hadassah raises its hospital support money through various fundraising exercises, the most recent, Bruno said, being stem-cell walks held in Great Neck and the south shore of Jones Beach. These events raised a great

deal of capital for the cause, she said. In addition, Hadassah also supports several American charitable causes, such as sending children to summer camp. “Hadassah Hospital does not turn anyone away,” said Bruno. “People come from all over the world that can not get treatment elsewhere for an illness that they have, and Hadassah Hospital is the one place that will take them in. They do it for the world, not just the Israelis.” In addition, Hillel added, Hadassah also supports refugee children throughout the world and sponsor them as they are given refuge and education in Israel. Many of them eventually grow up to be doctors, lawyers and other professions that offer a positive contribution to society. Hillel, who has served as president of the Tobay chapter for the past five months, extolled the virtues and grace of all the members under her watch, stating that Hadassah is not merely a Jewish organization; all races, creeds, colors and religions are welcome in their mission to make a better tomorrow for all. “These are the most well-educated, well-spoken, well-read, warmest and kind-hearted people you could ever hope to meet,” she said. “I’m so honored to be associated with them and fortunate enough to have been appointed their president...ultimately, anyone who comes to our meetings or joins feels empowered and knows that giving is so much more than receiving.”

The Town of Oyster Bay’s “Music Under the Stars” program kicks off July 8 and features performances from various acts in different Long Island parks. The first concert of the series features award-winning country rock band Lonestar at John J. Burns Town Park in Massapequa July 8. Featuring country hits including “No News,” “Come Crying To Me,” and “Amazed,” Lonestar has been making an impact on audiences with their music for over 20 years. “The biggest accomplishment of the band’s storied career has been witnessing the impact of Lonestar songs in the lives of others,” said Supervisor John Venditto. “Nowhere has this been more evident than in the group’s performances for U.S. armed forces stationed overseas in Iraq and Kuwait, where classics like ‘I’m Already There’ have elicited powerful emotional displays from men and women who’ve put their lives on the line defending America.” Following Lonestar, Peter “Herman” Noone and his band Herman’s Hermits bring their swinging 60s hits to Ellsworth W. Allen Town Park in Farmingdale on July 10. “Accompanied 19Aby his band, Herman’s Hermits, Noone performs over 200 concerts a year. He consistently plays to sold-out venues and Daycare / Nursery Schools his admirers span the generations,”

Lonestar performs at Burns Park on July 8. Venditto said. “There is no doubt that Peter Noone’s extraordinary talent, disarming wit, and compelling stage presence will continue to delight fans of all ages.” For fans of 90s rock and pop, Friday, July 11, will offer a special treat, when Gin Blossoms come to Burns Park in Massapequa. “The Gin Blossoms are a Grammy nominated group that blend Pop & Rock to become a musical force that helped define the sound of 90s radio, releasing hits like ‘Hey Jealousy’ and ‘Allison Road’ and continue to tour to this day,” Venditto said. “Come out for a night with the Gin Blossoms, and enjoy a great night of Rock & Pop music

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


Great Summer Events In Nassau County Parks The Cole Brothers Circus comes to Eisenhower Park on Friday, July 11, through Sunday, July 13. Nassau County Executive

EDWARD P. MANGANO 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 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. Be sure to stop by and enjoy the park, music and culture all summer long. Help us to continue the celebration of each and every one of our Nassau County residents with 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. Our busy calendar continues to unfold with a number of incredible music shows. 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. Both concerts will begin at 7 p.m. at Lakeside Theatre. 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.

Charcoal, Lighting Fluid And ‘60s Memories As a child growing up on Long Island in the late ‘60s, many memories come to mind. The most vivid ones, those that make me feel best and cause me to smile, all seem to revolve around summertime. School was out. The weather was great. It was light till nine at night. After playing all day, we would come home for dinner. Two or three times a week, we would barbeque. These days, it is called “grilling.” Meat on the fire, hot and fast. As we have come to understand now from celebrity chefs and carping foodies, barbeque is cooked “low and slow” with the flame never touching the meat. Totally different process. But back then, if it burned in the backyard, it was a barbecue. Creating the perfect barbeque was an art form, a technique mastered by father and handed down to son. We had our barbeque pit in the backyard. It was made of brick and slate, with two built-in metal grates. They were identical, the top grate was about 10 inches above the bottom grate. The charcoals went on the bottom grate,

In The Community

FRED STEINBERG the top was used for food. Before lining the bottom grate with charcoal, a layer of paper had to be put down. We used newspaper. Next came coals. After layering them perfectly, they had to be doused with the right amount of lighter fluid. If too little fluid was applied, the charcoal would not burn and massive amounts of fluid had to be added. Too much fluid would not only make the food taste like lighter fluid, but also might cost you eyebrows if the fire roared and you were not quick enough to jump back. When everything was set correctly, you lit the match. First, the corners

of the newspaper were lit. Next, you threw the match in the charcoal. The fire grew as it consumed the lighter fluid and newspaper. As it subsided, it had to be fanned, usually with a folded newspaper. When the embers started to glow, it was time. First the burgers, then the dogs. Lastly the buns. Everything tasted better on the grill. There were no health concerns, no worries if the burgers were rare in the middle. Ultimately, we all

The charcoal briquettes are glowing. It’s officially summer. survived. Our most pressing need was then finding the right stick to put the marshmallows on, sticking them right on top of the charcoal. They were hot and delicious. We couldn’t wait to do it again. Local resident Fred Steinberg was born and raised on Long Island. Email:

| 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 in a lawn chair at one of the numerous official and unofficial fireworks shows in the area and beyond 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. The Nassau Pops put on quite a show each year. From kid smiles to adult “aaahhs,” Independence Day pushes families towards the heart of summer, one pop and sizzle at a time.



Bank On Your Local Paper

A Real Court Jester

Lend A Pint Of Blood

Sometime in early spring, you published a story about the skimming devices that were found on the ATMs at a TD Bank in Plainview. The article caught my attention and prompted me to make changes in the way I handle my money. First off, I would like to thank you for paying attention to your readers and listening to their concerns regarding the issue. You were willing to research and report on a real problem that no one else had yet recognized. Thank you, also, for questioning and digging into TD’s administration although it was undoubtedly an intimidating task. Because of your efforts and reporting, I have become a safer bank customer in several ways: I’ve started withdrawing cash from bank tellers instead of from ATMs when possible; I now use cash instead of my card much more frequently than I used to; if I have to use my card, I opt for credit instead of debit; and I monitor my bank statements much more closely and check often for inconsistencies or fraudulent charges. I suggest your other readers still remember the TD incident and follow a path to becoming better bank costumers. Thank you again for protecting and serving your readers. Julie Kim

Is Kimba Woods a Judge — or a joke? Queen Kimba recently gave a convicted 60-year-old thief 39 years to pay back the $300,567 in disability pension benefits that he virtually stole by faking a Long Island Rail Road disability. It’s bad enough that she’s only asking him to pay back $700 a month; but this is on top of her recent sentencing of another LIRR fraudster to pay back the $300,000 he stole at a mere $25 a month — meaning that it would theoretically take him 982(!) years (even though, according to the Bible, Methusaleh himself only made it to 969-years-old). This “sentence” would be funny if it wasn’t so sad for society and the rule of law. I’d like to point out to Judge Woods (whom I’d like to sentence for judicial malpractice in my own Court of Common Sense) that the dictionary defines a “judge” as “someone capable of making rational and wise decisions.” These recent decisions of hers could make even the famous iron statue of Lady Justice cry tears of shame underneath her blindfold.

We, as a community, are faced with a dire situation. The New York Blood Center is asking for assistance over the summer to maintain the necessary supply of all blood types, but specifically O-negative. The summer months pose the greatest difficulty for the Blood Center as they historically see a drop in donations. I hope this letter serves as a reminder and I urge all residents to continue to help those in need by donating blood. Every donation goes a long way to help saving the lives of those in medical emergencies. I, along with Legislator Michael Venditto, will be hosting a blood drive at the Farmingdale Public Library on August 25th from 1:30 to 7:30PM. For more information, please contact my office. To find other locations to donate blood or for information on how to organize a blood drive, please call toll free 1-800-933-2566 or visit www. I thank all of you in advance for your generous donations as we continue to help make our community stronger and more prepared for any sort of emergency, both small and large.

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

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


Long Island Wins

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.

Fledgling Hawks At Bethpage BY MICHAEL GIVANT

Top: A red-tailed hawk fledgling in its nest.

Bottom: A tree swallow waiting with an insect to give to its fledglings. (Photos by Michael Givant)

I recently went to Bethpage State Park and met with Kathy Wegman, an environmental horticulturist who specializes in wildlife habitat for golf courses. We went to a nest to see a family of red-tailed hawks which includes three fledglings, young birds that can’t fly. After looking at them for a while, Kathy asked if I mind staying here an hour. What travail!! How often do I get a chance to watch a family of red-tails with three fledglings and perhaps a dad delivering a freshly caught rodent breakfast?

unobstructed view and significantly closer to me. He circles to a high branch in a perimeter tree where he’s got a clear look at two men driving off in a golf cart. Dad doesn’t seem bothered by me or the golfers but is dutifully vigilant. I scan the tapestry of how the nest is tightly woven together from sticks, and thin branches. That birds have made this “basket” using just their bills and feet without the aid of hands, is a marvel. The nest appears larger than the norm of three-feet. I stop scanning when I see the eye and light eye bar of a fledgling peering over a thin branch. After Kathy comes back, I tell her what I’ve observed. She says that she thinks that the “adult” flapping its wings might be a fledgling that is larger than the other two. When we look at my pics a day later, that is indeed the case. How many times did I mistake the mom for the dad! I don’t know how long the fledglings will be here. Even after the young can fly they stay with the parents for some weeks until their flight ability develops. Maybe I’ll see them again. However seeing this family together, in the silence of the woods and the attention that one or both adults paid to the fledglings was more than worth the time here.

In The Nest Red-tailed hawks, otherwise known simply as red-tails and occasionally as the “hen hawk” are large at 19-inches and commonly seen. They often circle over suburban woodlands sometimes displaying their rust colored tail. They perch on poles and highway lights also making them noticeable to us. They hunt their favorite prey, small mammals like mice, from high branches. I’m in a clump of woods with tall trees and fairways on either side. It is silent. There’s no more gunfire from the target range on the park’s periphery that we occasionally heard coming here. In the nest are three fledglings all of which have a rust colored neck and breast. Two of the fledglings are showing their sides and the third, the largest, stands up. One of the adults, that I assume is the father, flies from the nest to a tall tree on the perimeter facing the nest with its head partially covered by leaves. If I hadn’t seen it fly here I’d probably not have spotted it. The dad’s white belly has a light brown band. Large and solid looking, his movements are low key but he’s a steadfast guardian of his brood. Out of the corner of my eye I see an adult red-tail gliding across the fairway. That 49-inch wingspan is difficult to miss. A second later another red-tail follows. The second was either in the nest or in another tree where I didn’t see it. Back at the nest, out of the corner of my eye, there’s a dark raptor flying silently through the trees. I marvel at how it navigates these tight spaces as it goes to a high branch. Through binocs the concave area of the raptor’s eye socket seems dark and mysterious. I love looking at the eye of a raptor. The moment is filled with the power of silence. The red-tail flies off

We go off with the licensed bird bander, Susan Harwood, who is going to band some tree swallow young and then put them back in their box nests. However I’m taken by the flying ability of some adults that are near the nest. They flit around, speed up and glide in the air, almost stopping. What they can do in the air makes human built aircraft look out-and-out clumsy. As we are leaving two swallows approach the nest box. One is near the hole and the other perching nearby. Parents checking on their young. They are protective and I like it. One has an insect in its bill caught on the fly. It’s for delivery to the young, who need food. I look around as golfers walk the fairways while in the woods and at this fairway’s edge, avian parents are tending to their broods. The cycle of life is where you find it.

| NEWS BRIEF PSEG Warns Residents Of Scam PSEG Long Island is urging its residential and business customers not to be defrauded by payment scams that are increasingly targeting customers across its service territory. The scam, which has been reported by utilities across the country, involves individuals misrepresenting themselves as PSEG Long Island employees threatening to turn off electric service if payment is not made to them that day. The scam involves payments using Green Dot MoneyPaks. As noted on the MoneyPak packaging and on the company’s website (www.moneypak. com), to protect from fraud, consumers should treat the MoneyPak like cash and only use the MoneyPak number with

businesses on their approved partner list. PSEG Long Island alerted its customers to a similar scam earlier in the year. In recent weeks, there has been an increase in a new tactic that is targeting small businesses. An individual calls pretending to be a PSEG Long Island employee. The caller demands the customer to make a payment within hours using a type of pre-paid card, such as a Green Dot MoneyPak, available at pharmacies and convenience stores. Customers are advised that if they do not immediately call back and provide the MoneyPak information their service will be turned off that day. In many cases, customers who fall victim to the scam do not realize they have been defrauded until the next billing cycle and a payment

has not been posted to their account. When PSEG Long Island makes an outbound phone call to customers, the representative will ask to speak to the Customer of Record. If that person is available, the PSEG Long Island representative will explain why they are calling and will share information that includes the account name, address and current balance. If customers do not receive this correct information, they likely are not speaking with a PSEG Long Island representative. Additionally, if the Customer of Record is not available, the PSEG Long Island representative will not discuss the account at all. The representative will ask the party who answered to give the Customer of Record a message to call PSEG Long Island at 1-800-490-0025.

PSEG Long Island offers a variety of payment options, and would never require a customer to use one specific type of payment. PSEG Long Island customers scheduled for disconnection due to nonpayment receive written notice on their bill at least 10 days in advance. Any customer who has doubts about the legitimacy of a call from PSEG Long Island — especially one in which payment is requested — should call us directly at 1-800-490-0025 or visit a local PSEG Long Island Customer Service Center. Service Centers are open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with locations listed on customer bills and online at: https://www.psegliny. com/page.cfm/Account/Payment/ CustomerServiceCenters.



YMCA Encourages Pool Safety The YMCA of Long Island is encouraging Long Island parents and children to take the national “Pool Safely Pledge,” to be safe in and around the water this summer. A campaign of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and now in its fifth year, “Pool Safely” ( is a comprehensive pool safety program which includes safety tips and checklists for parents, along with a commitment by parents, caregivers and children to follow recommended safety guidelines designed to prevent residential drowning and entrapment incidents. “With summer just around the corner, ‘Pool Safely’ is a perfect opportunity to reinforce basic water safety practices for parents, and to instill in children at an early age the importance of following these rules,” said YMCA of LI President Anne Brigis. “As a national partner with the U.S. CPSC on this campaign, we encourage all of our members — and all Long Islanders with pools on their property — to take the pledge.” The ‘Pool Safely’ Pledge (http:// asks adults to commit to five water safety steps in and -around their pools: PLAINVIEW-OLD BETHPAGE HERALD JULY 4, 2014

Water District Committed To Excellence BY HERALD STAFF

The Plainview Water District Board of Commissioners Joel Kessler, Andrew Bader and Edward Shulroff recognize the District’s hard-working staff who are committed to providing the Plainview-Old Bethpage community with high quality water all year round. “We are extremely fortunate to have an exceptional group of people working together who are dedicated to protect our water supply for our entire community,” said Kessler. “Our District personnel are extensively trained and have the knowledge and resources to quickly and effectively address any issues that could arise.” Plainview Water District staff work around the clock, even in the most adverse conditions, to ensure that all District facilities are efficiently operating at all times and that

residents consistently receive water in their homes. District personnel pride themselves in providing high quality service, including rapid response times for their consumers. “District employees are also trained to follow strict guidelines and procedures to ensure customer safety,” added Shulroff. “They are taught to be vigilant on-site and are mandated to carry a photo identification card at all times.” In addition, District customer service representatives are trained to recognize the identities of all employees and can confirm their assigned work locations. Following these guidelines and protecting the well-being of the community continues to be the District’s highest priority.
