Deception Burglaries Target Seniors BY RICH FORESTANO

rforestano@antonnews.com

Nassau County Police is investigating a string of deception burglaries that occurred between Thursday, June 19 and Friday, June 20 in Syosset, Westbury and Herricks. Police said the suspects pose as National Grid employees and target senior citizens. They tell victims a water check is needed to determine possible gas leaks. Police stated the suspects would be with the victims for a short time, before moving to another side of the house to look for valuable items.

Local Scam Alerts BY JACLYN GALLUCCI

jgallucci@antonnews.com

PSEG Payment Scams PSEG Long Island is warning customers about a scam in which an individual calls pretending to be a PSEG Long Island employee. Police say in some cases, the scammer has the victim’s correct account number. The caller demands payment within hours using a type of pre-paid card, such as a Green Dot MoneyPak and threatens to turn off their service. PSEG does not require a customer to use one specific type of payment and 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 phone call should call 1-800-490-0025.

Phone Scams Target Seniors New York State Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman has issued a consumer alert on five common telephone scams targeting senior citizens, which typically spike during the summer months: Grandparent Scam – While the emergencies vary, the scenario is usually this: A caller claiming to be the “grandson” is out of town and needs money fast — to make bail, or to pay for automobile repairs or medical expenses. The caller begs the grandparent not to tell his parents, just wire the money immediately. Increasingly, scammers use actual relatives’ names and information gleaned from the Internet.

Jury Duty Scam – The caller will claim to be an officer of the court and say there’s a warrant for the arrest of the victim for failing to report for jury duty. The scammer will also claim that there is a fine for failing to show, and that unless the fine is paid immediately, the police will be sent to the victim’s home to make an arrest. The scammer will request that the “Jury Duty Warrant” be paid with a Green Dot Card Money Card or Western Union MoneyGram. Lottery Scam – The caller says you’ve won a foreign lottery and requests that you, as the “winner,” send a check or to wire money to cover taxes and fees. Legitimate contests never ask for money upfront. The caller may request your banking information in order to electronically direct deposit your winnings. This is an attempt to steal your identity and will wipe out your bank account. IRS Scam – The caller will claim to be an agent or police officer from the Internal Revenue Service calling about a past due tax balance. The caller will tell the victim that unless the debt is paid immediately, officers will arrest the victim. The scammer will also request that the “IRS Tax Warrant” be paid with a Green Dot Card Money Card or Western Union MoneyGram. These scammers often use caller ID spoofing so that the victim’s caller ID box says “Internal Revenue Service” or displays the phone number of the IRS. Victims are encouraged to call 1-800-771-7755.

Army Dad Surprises Syosset Grad U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Richard Davis surprised his daughter, Stephanie, during the Syosset High School Class of 2014 graduation ceremony, coming up to the stage and presenting her with her diploma. The surprise came while Syosset High School Principal Giovanni Durante was handing out diplomas at the June 25 commencement, held in the David S. Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex at Hofstra University. “I worked in conjunction with members of the district and the Board of Education along with the family to make this request a reality,” Durante

said. “It was an honor to be a part of welcoming Lieutenant Colonel Davis home.” LTC Davis has been deployed in Afghanistan since July 2013 and wasn’t scheduled to return until July 2014. However, Davis worked to secure an earlier leave and reached out to the district to arrange the surprise appearance. Shortly before Graduation Day, Karen Davis, LTC Davis’ wife, alerted the district that her husband had made it stateside in time. The reunion was kept private between Lt. Colonel Davis and the Syosset School District right up until Davis snuck up onto the dais. — Syosset Schools

service as a religious school education director, creating several successful youth and teen programs and participating on a number of community service board of directors. “One of my priorities is to work closely with the religious school to develop and grow our next generation’s love for Jewish values and appreciation for our traditions,” said Herman. “And of course, make doing so fun and enjoyable!” Rabbi Herman enjoys hiking, running, and following professional football, particularly the Green Bay Packers. He was married June 1, 2014 to Karina Reizman, a recent graduate of the University of Arizona who plans on becoming a child life specialist.

New Rabbi In Jericho BY TRIBUNE STAFF

syossetjericho@antonnews.com

Rabbi Ben Herman is moving across the country to join the Jericho Jewish Center (JJC) as its new religious leader. Herman says it's “because of the opportunity to lead such a family centered synagogue with a membership that is enthusiastic and growing.” Herman has spent the past three years as assistant rabbi of Anshei Israel, the premier Conservative synagogue in Arizona.

“Everyone who has met Ben is invigorated by his youth and passion,” said Mark Wilkow, JJC board president. “We are excited to introduce him to our community.” Raised in Milwaukee, Herman graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he earned his bachelor of arts with Honors in Hebrew and Jewish studies. He then attended the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York, where he graduated with his masters in Jewish education and rabbinic ordination. He was a Chaplain Intern at Bellevue

BURGLARIES from page 1 an 85-year-old female victim answered a door to find a man, asking to check water lines. Police said the man displayed an identification tag. Authorities did not have a description of the suspect in Syosset. “They went around the house, checking faucets, going from room to room,” Smith said. “Then, they separated briefly and he leaves. After she’s turned the water on and off a few times, she discovers she’s missing some jewelry.” A 79-year-old Herricks woman on Pine Street received a knock at her front door on June 20 at 12:40 p.m., where a man posing as a utility worker said there was a gas explosion in the area, police said. The woman was told to turn sink faucets on and off while the subject worked in a bathroom near the master bedroom. Assorted gold jewelry was stolen from the residence, police stated. “There was several thousand dollars of jewelry missing,” Smith said. “We see this happens from time to time. It’s another ploy on tree trimming and electricity, where people deceive you to come into your house.” Police described the suspect as a male with dark skin, 5-foot-7 inches tall, 30-35 years old. The man, police

said, had a blue ink tattoo on his right forearm, spoke with a lisp or stutter and wore a construction hat and vest. “People who are seniors do a lot of things face-to-face,” Smith said. “You can easily follow a senior citizen home and at a later date, go to the house and pull off this scam. We want people to be aware of this and neighbors to look out for each other.” Police said on June 20 at 2:30 p.m. in Westbury, a 66-year-old man responded to knocks at his door, finding two men at his door. Authorities described one as a light-skinned male with black eyes, between 5-foot-2 inches tall, 35-40 years old, with a medium to heavy build. Using the gas leak excuse, the two men separated, with one checking the water meter while another stays with the victim. Smith said the man found that special coins and other cash was missing from rooms upstairs. “At that point, the second guy leaves to go upstairs to check on his partner and a short time later, [the victim] goes upstairs and finds both of them are gone,” Smith said. Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2448477. All calls will remain confidential. Callers are eligible for a cash reward of up to $5,000.

JET from page 1 exercise regimen can become vitamin and hormone deficient, especially as they age,” says Manna. CoreMedical’s treatment comprises the creation of a proprietary physician-supervised hormone and supplement regimen, based on a decade of experience, that caters to each patient’s unique needs. “When you implement a vitamin and hormone regimen,” says Coleman, “it’s never true that one size fits all. Men and women, for example, require different types of treatment and different frequency of monitoring.” Coleman notes that symptoms of female hormone imbalance include

TOWN HOUSE from page 1 Housing Justice Center (FHJC) in Manhattan, which sent white and African American “test” renters to the 74-unit apartment complex in Mineola from August to October 2012. Settlement documents say that on three separate occasions, black testers were quoted higher rents or told rooms were being renovated/unavailable. Attempts to reach Building Superintendent Jorge Agudelo were unsuccessful. “We brought this case because we had compelling evidence of racial discrimination and African Americans cannot be denied housing choice based on race,” ERASE Racism President Elaine Gross said. The complaint said that on Sept. 10, 2012, FHJC sent L.B. Williams, a black tester, to meet with Agudelo to discuss open apartments and Agudelo said none were available, but there “might be one available next month on the third floor.” The rent would cost $1,725 per month, he said. When Williams asked to see the third floor dwelling, Agudelo said no, court documents said. Williams asked if there was a waiting list for units, and Agudelo answered “he had people waiting” and that he’d call Williams later about the apartment. Four hours later, FHJC sent a white tester to the apartment complex after Williams’ visit, for dwelling inquiries. The papers argue Agudelo said there was a room available and showed the third floor apartment to the white tester, said it was “immediately available to rent and volunteered the rent at $1,675 per month.’ “This settlement should send a clear message to other rental housing providers on Long Island that housing must be made available on an equal basis to all people without regard to race,” FHJC Executive Director Fred Freiberg said. Lisa Darden visited Town House on

www.syossetjerichotribune.com fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, loss of libido, depression and stress. “Medications to resolve these symptoms may include bio-identical hormones, progesterone bi-est and testosterone cream,” he says. Coleman, practice manager of CoreMedicalNY, became interested in this type of medicine when he was introduced toward the end of his playing career to CoreMedical Group’s South Florida practice. He said the facility’s vitamin and nutrient therapies helped him “regain the energy and drive I had when I first started playing football.” Coleman played for the NY Jets from 2004 to 2007, then for the Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions. Sept. 11, 2012 and met with Agudelo to talk about rent, where he said it would cost $1,750 per month, the complaint said. Darden responded that $1,700 was her limit, but Agudelo said the price was non-negotiable. Two hours later, a white female tester was sent to Town House and inquired if a room would be available by Oct. 1. Agudelo, the report said, noted that two were available, one for $1,675 while the other cost $1,700. The documents said Agudelo indicated rent was negotiable. “Many people would like to believe that this type of housing discrimination is no longer an issue, said Gross. “It is a shame that the burden falls on a small number of concerned organizations, like ERASE Racism, to document the discrimination and use the courts to stop it.” Oct. 9, 2012 saw a white tester sent to the Mineola complex, where they asked if a room would be available Nov. 1. According to documents, Agudelo said it would be available at $1,650 per month. He also showed the tester a second apartment at $1,700 which was, “remodeled and had a better kitchen” than the first apartment. On Oct. 12, FHJC sent Inga Ballard to inquire about apartments. Agudelo told her one room was available, the papers said. He showed her the first room, but did not mention the second, refinished unit. The same white tester from Oct. 9 returned to Mineola after Ballard left and “asked if [the remodeled] room Ballard was not told about, was still available for rent,” the papers said. Agudelo said it was and told the white tester to come back on Oct. 13 to fill out an application and bring two $1,700 checks if she was interested in renting. “The FHJC will continue to work with ERASE Racism and other organizations to ensure that fair housing laws are vigorously enforced,” Freiberg said.

THE LATEST COSMETIC SURGERY PROCEDURES WILL HAVE YOU LOOKING HOT THIS SUMMER

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.

Homemade Salads

Salamis

Imported Specialty Foods

Smoked Meats & Hams

Another avenue to consider is having a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty), especially effective postpregnancy or after significant weight loss, this procedure improves abdominal contouring and can have you in great shape in a very short period of time. Abdominoplasty is very effective in reducing or eliminating stretch marks, skin excess and for correcting weakening of the abdominal muscles.

| EDITORIAL Farewell My Lovely Crumbcake Growing up on Long Island in the '70s with health-conscious parents, we did not did not eat much in the way of processed, prepackaged foods, especially baked goods. One of the few exceptions was Entenmann’s coffee cakes, which were made locally. Mom and Dad went for the pecan roll, though we kids were always hot for the crumb-topped coffee cake. (The chocolate-covered donuts, sadly, were never in play.) For a while, every day we drove past the Entenmann’s factory outlet on Roslyn Road and Jericho Turnpike. In the morning, a line of eager

shoppers formed outside the doors. Inside was a carb heaven (or hell, depending on your point of view), with Entenmann’s classics alongside exotic cookies and snack brands established by the LI company’s new parent in Mexico. But the writing was on the wall, or more properly the door. About a week after our first visit, the outlet closed. Now the bakery itself, all five acres of it, is going, too. Moving somewhere cheaper after more than 100 years. Mom, kept robust in her dotage by decades of healthy eating habits, won’t be buying Entenmann’s anymore. Us? We’re still suckers for that crumb cake.

Wither Thou Goest, I Will Go The Bible speaks of Ruth, who left the nation and home where she was born and traveled to a new land with her mother-in-law, Naomi. Her words were “Wither Thou Goest, I Will Go.” My wife Lorraine followed Ruth’s philosophy in 1962, when she married me, Stanley H. Greenberg. Lorraine came from a close wonderful family in Maryland with two sisters and loving parents. We were married in a Temple in Washington D.C. This thought came to my mind after a recent visit to D.C. Today due to job offers relocating is much more prevalent and often necessary. Our children and grandchildren are temporarily or

permanently living throughout the country or world. This was not the case 50 years ago. Lorraine never feared leaving her comfortable life and moving north to busy, frantic New York City. It was not an easy decision, but she made it seamlessly. Lorraine had just graduated from George Washington University as a Speech Pathologist. She applied for positions in her field and something strange happened, she was offered every position in her field she applied for! In my experience, I only received about 20 percent of the jobs I applied for. I guess her honesty, her good

clean looks, her personality plus her superior academic background were all factors in getting employment. She seem to fit right into all of her jobs. She was loved and respected by her co-workers, working at hospitals and

for 37 years as a therapist and then management with The Visiting Nurse Service of New York. One month ago, Lorraine retired. She was given at least four retirement parties and the tears flowed like Niagara. I am her husband and I have watched her raise three great children and help out whenever needed in the upbringing of our six delicious grandchildren. Lorraine and I are now two retired people trying to be productive and use our time in learning and enjoying our family and friends. We have been married for 50 years and look forward to our future memories, here on Long Island.

SALUTE TO VETERANS AN ANTON COMMUNITY NEWSPAPERS SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT • JULY 2 - 8, 2014

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.

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

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.

THE WEEKEND - JULY 2 - 8, 2014

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.

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 www.smartunionlirr.com, and goes on to say “we are concerned about the

116058

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

Opinion

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.

On May 10, the sanctuary of Temple Beth Torah, serving the communities of Jericho, Brookville, Syosset, Westbury and Hicksville, was filled with congregants and their families eagerly awaiting services. Why so many people? It was too late in the year (or too early, depending upon your outlook) for the High Holidays; it could only mean one thing — Sisterhood Shabbat! This year, more than 50 women came together in song and prayer under the tutelage of beloved Cantor Fliegelman. Sisterhood Shabbat has become a beautiful, annual tradition in which women actively participate by reading Torah, leading prayers, chanting the Haftorah, delivering the D’var Torah, and offering an inspirational sermon. It does not matter how old you are or how much Hebrew you can read (many have parts in English), everyone participates. As each woman finished her part, smiles of accomplishment and relief were bright enough to light up the night sky and it was quite apropos that this particular year it fell on Mothers’ Day weekend. Our past Sisterhood presidents

were each called up to the bimah by Sisterhood Co-President Randie Mishan and were presented with a beautiful plant to acknowledge the foundation they built, upon which Sisterhood has continued to grow and thrive. Mishan also thanked Rabbi Katz for all his inspiration and guidance in helping to make this tradition an annual success. As part of this service, one woman is singled out for her dedication to Sisterhood. Linda Guber, co-president of Sisterhood, acknowledged Doreen Leibowitz, Sisterhood treasurer for this recognition. “Doreen works tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure all the financials are in order,” said Guber. “She is always reliable and is one of ‘the backbones’ of Sisterhood’s success.” At the end of the service, and before the delicious luncheon which followed, Guber offered the following closing remarks, “We here at Temple Beth Torah consider ourselves a family. Remember, you cannot choose your relatives, but we all made the decision to become part of the Temple Beth Torah Family. It is our hope that each of us makes the commitment to enable Sisterhood and Temple Beth Torah to continue to flourish for many years to come.”

More than $43,000 in scholarships were awarded to Jericho High School seniors on June 16 during Senior Awards Night. Here, Nassau County Legislator Judy Jacobs presents Marc Siegel with the Community Service Award.

Recently Sold Homes In Jericho

BY JACLYN GALLUCCI

jgallucci@antonnews.com

There have been a lot of changes in Jericho over the past four centuries. Populated largely by settlers fleeing from persecution in England in the mid-1600s, Jericho was part of the Robert Williams Plantation. Jericho's residents, seeking a more peaceful existence, turned to farming and the Quaker doctrine. The Friends Meeting House was built in 1788, the post office in 1802, the water district in 1923 and, in 1958, the NY Department of Transportation widened Routes 106/107 to accommodate the bustling community. Today, Jericho is home to nearly 14,000 residents. Its vibrant community and stellar school district makes the hamlet a high-demand area in the real estate world. Here are some homes in Jericho that recently sold.

With 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, this 1 Herkimer Ave. colonial in Jericho sold for $1.45 million on June 20. It has a finished full basement with egress windows, eat-in kitchen, office, Jacuzzi and yearly property taxes of $14,954.

Sold for $824,000 on May 13, this 20 Chenango Dr. colonial in Jericho has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a finished full basement, eat-in kitchen, family room, fireplace, wood floors and yearly property taxes of $13,196.

Built in 1960, this 11 Clinton Lane hi ranch in Jericho sold for $765,000 on June 6. It has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen, office, fireplace, 2-car garage, patio, no basement and yearly property taxes of $12,733.

This 55 Orange Dr. split-level home in Jericho sold for $722,500 on June 19. It has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a finished partial basement, eat-in kitchen, vaulted ceilings, skylights and yearly property taxes of $17,518.

The annual SYAC Photo Night is always a fun occasion to don team uniforms and make funny faces with teammates. This year, sunny skies prevailed in May as softball teams and coaches in SYAC Girls Softball posed for team pictures. SYAC fields teams in four divisions. Instructional (grades K-1), Pony (2-3), and Junior (4-5) play games at school fields. SYAC’s Senior teams (6-7) compete in the Majors Division of the InterTown League that includes teams from Plainview, Jericho and Farmingdale, with home games played at Syosset-Woodbury Park. SYAC also hosts a travel division, which plays games on weekends at home and in neighboring towns. The SYAC board of directors is looking for new members to contribute their time and energies to making a fun season happen for girls in our community. Anyone interested should contact their coach or commissioner. For more information: www.SYACGS.org. — SYAC

Syosset Women Walk The Walk BY TRIBUNE STAFF Shelly Wool and Carole Rudin of Syosset recently walked 13.1 miles to raise money to support breast cancer organizations on Long Island. Wool and Rudin participated in the LI2DAY Walk as members of the team of the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program, an organization that has provided emotional support and counseling to breast cancer patients and their families for 34 years. The half-marathon walk started

and ended at Smith Point Beach in Shirley, with nearly 600 participants, including many breast cancer survivors. In 10 years, LI2Day has raised more than $5 million, funding local programs such as the Adelphi Hotline, awarding a yearly breast cancer research grant to Cold Spring Harbor Lab and providing scholarships to 54 students. For information about LI2DAY, visit http://li2daywalk.com. To reach the Adelphi Breast Cancer Hotline, call 1-800-877-8077.

Golf Classic A Success The Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation held its 21st Annual Golf Classic on June 9, at Sands Point Golf Club in Port Washington. The event honored Kim and John Horan of Upper Brookville, principals of Horan Construction and well-known Long Island philanthropists; and raised more than $270,000. The proceeds will go to benefit the programs and services of the foundation, which are designed to improve the quality of life for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and for their caregivers. Pictured, from left, are golfers Dan Burch, Rick Meskell, Golf Classic honoree John Horan, and Chris Reilly.
