Schreiber High School senior Harry Paul was recognized for earning top honors at the International Science and Engineering Fair, the world’s largest international pre-college science competition, held in Los Angeles. The district also recognized Kyle Calenda for his volunteering and support of the school district, as he served as the board’s student representative for the 2013-14 school year. Recognition was also given to students who participated in the Dancing Classrooms program, which was piloted at Salem Elementary School in the fall of 2013. For 10 weeks, students learned a variety of ballroom dances, including the merengue, fox trot and swing. In April, they competed in the Colors of the Rainbow competition at Sachem High School, hosted by Dancing Classrooms, and were awarded the silver medal. The district congratulated the following students and their teachers for this achievement: students Christopher Caprariello, Shira Freilich, Marcus

‘College Pioneers’ Bond With De Giorgio By PORT NEWS STAFF

PORTWASHINGTON@ANTONNEWS.COM

The College Pioneers Club at Schreiber High School, sponsored by the school district and Port teacher Dr. Cecilia Escamilla, is made up of students who will be the first generation in their families to go to college and they recently met up with Councilwoman Dina De Giorgio, another “Pioneer.” During the recent Town of North Hempstead’s Community Clean-Up for Earth Day, De Giorgio had an opportunity to speak with the students as they were volunteering on Campus Drive. She commended them for their community service and shared her own background. “When I was your age, I could not have even dreamed that one day I would have the opportunity to get a college degree and eventually have an opportunity to serve my community as an elected official,” the councilwoman stated. She shared with the group that, like them, she was the first in her family to go to and graduate from college. Councilwoman De Giorgio also spoke of how it was very difficult to work her way through undergraduate school and later law school, but that it was well worth it. She encouraged the group to pursue its dreams of higher education because “one day you

The “College Pioneers” will be the first in their families to go to college. may be standing in front of a class as an elected official and have the chance to give back and help others in your community achieve their dreams.”

The College Pioneers was one of many groups of young people and community volunteers that gave time to help clean up and beautify Port Washington in celebration of Earth Day.

PSEG from page 7

ratepayers in the affected areas would have to pay for the project. De Giorgio came away from the meeting with PSEG with a very different view, saying the town contingent was given documents that PSEG had already turned over and representatives were also told that certain information was confidential. When town representatives offered to sign a confidentiality agreement, nothing was done, De Giorgio said. “It’s frustrating. They are stonewalling us.” “We are working hand-in-hand with their consultant on any questions they have,” is Weir’s view. “They are answering what they feel like answering,” De Giorgio counters. “They are giving out the information they want to give out, not necessarily the information we need.” The next step on the town’s part is for Aabo to finish his evaluation of undergrounding the wires, with the goal of coming up with a feasibility and cost assessment. From there, the town would possibly consider a referendum for residents to vote on whether they want to go that route, and take on the cost, which would be included in their utility bills. Also, Residents for a More Beautiful Port Washington remains active, feeling the poles should be uprooted, with the cost borne by PSEG. “We shouldn’t have to pay for their lack of communication with us early on,” said Mindy Germain, executive director. The group will also redouble its efforts with state legislators, Germain said.

The new poles tower over the old ones, which still have to be removed. The Town of North Hempstead is expected to consider a new law to compel PSEG to take formal responsibility for taking out the old poles.

Sandy. Additionally, the taller poles also bring the wires above the tree canopy in many places, thus further reducing the risk of outages related to downed limbs.” While the electric portion is done, there is still necessary clean-up to be undertaken around the new poles, which will be handled by PSEG, Weir said. There is also the need for Cablevision and Verizon to transfer their wiring to the new poles from the 45-foot poles that were replaced, and the job of removing the old poles. That latter effort will fall to Verizon, “because they are usually the last to move their wires, so the responsibility falls to them," Weir said. "We are diligent in making sure that happens." A Verizon spokesman could not be reached for comment. The Town of North Hempstead, meanwhile, plans to consider a law that would compel public utilities to take out duplicate poles that have been decommissioned. In this case, it would be the roughly 45-foot poles that PSEG replaced with the 80- and 85-foot poles. The town and many residents continue stewing at the sight of the new 80- and 85-foot poles and, in the town’s case, what it says is a lack of cooperation from PSEG. Typical of the town’s frustration with PSEG is a meeting representatives recently held with the utility at its headquarters in Hicksville. The receptionist didn’t even know a meeting was scheduled, said Councilwoman Dina De Giorgio. Things didn’t get better from there, she said. The get-together was aimed at talking with and getting documents from PSEG engineers about placing the wires underground, something that residents have called for and the town is looking into. With the town representatives, who included Rachel Brinn, director of legislative affairs for Supervisor Judi Bosworth; was Torben Aabo, the engineering consultant the town hired to access so called undergrounding the wires. Weir said the meeting was amicable, with PSEG “answering all of [the town representatives’] questions and any outstanding questions, they had the answers emailed to them.” Additionally, “We provided them with an estimated cost analysis” of burying the wires, Weir said. That cost is $20 million to $30 million, plus another $500,000 per mile, or $2.5 million, to undo the work that has already been done, if that route was chosen, according to PSEG and the New York State Department of Public Service. If PSEG was to underground the wires,

Daly Elementary School students are joined by H.S.A. co-president Jennifer Mannion (l., back), Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Mooney (in green) and Daly Elementary School H.S.A. co-president Jennifer Rothenberg.

Students, staff and central administrators attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Daly Elementary School for the school’s new buddy benches. Daly Elementary School Interim Principal Sheryl Haimovich explained that the benches are intended to promote unity and companionship among students, and that those who visit the benches can meet other students and develop friendships. Designs on the benches were painted by Daly students, and the structures were built by local artist John DiNaro. The project was funded by the school’s HSA parent organization and promoted by the school’s Character Education Committee. After the official ribbon cutting for the benches, students took part in a character education song and dance. Students pledged to use the benches responsibly, and to continue to exhibit honesty, kindness and tolerance toward others.

GROSS from page 1 responsibilities.” Gross started officially on Monday. Immediately after the announcement of the appointment, trustee Rita DeLucia said jokingly, “and the best part of this is that you don’t have to run for re-election,” alluding to Gross’ bruising re-election campaign against Wayne Wink last year. In 2013, North Hempstead’s Democratic party found themselves in the awkward position of having to find a position for county legislator Wayne Wink, who had just been gerrymandered out of his legislative seat by a Republican controlled county legislature. When the party decided to back Wink in the race for town clerk, Gross refused to go quietly into the sunset and ran as a Republican. The race pitted two well liked, capable and respected lifelong Democrats against one another. The contest turned ugly at times. Many town residents felt Gross had been treated poorly by the Democratic machine headed by Gerard Terry. Liz Gaynor, the outgoing clerk, was praised by Mayor Giunta and thanked for her two years of service during a difficult transition and a contentious village election. Gaynor is leaving to take up the post of Sands Point village clerk. In remarks at the village board meeting, Gaynor urged village residents to put partisanship aside and work for the betterment of the

HOTEL from page 1 the way for construction to begin. An economic development compact is an agreement, in this case negotiated between the applicant and the IDA and approved by the IDA board. To help entice the developers, Nassau County awarded over $1 million in incentives. The project will receive a sales-tax exemption of up to $950,000 for buying construction materials, furniture and other items, and $210,000 off its mortgage recording tax. Also, the hotel’s property tax rate will not change for three years and then go up two percent each of the next 17 years. Ground is expected to be broken within 30 days of the compact closing and construction is projected to last 13 months. The new hotel will replace a dilapidated sports facility in Harbor View Corporate Park. The project will create 300 full-time-equivalent construction jobs and, once completed, 62 permanent jobs, and generate total economic benefits of $6.4 million,

county officials say. The project—the first branded hotel in northwestern Nassau County—received the necessary approvals from the Town of North Hempstead in the spring. Town officials, at the time, said the hotel might serve as a draw to bring people into Port Washington who would then spend money in its many shops and restaurants. County Executive Ed Mangano sees a host of benefits from the project. “This hotel is important to Nassau County as it creates new jobs for our residents, provides a convenient place to stay for business and leisure visitors in a part of the county where hotel rooms are scarce, and eliminates community blight in this industrial area while generating millions in economic benefit for the community,” Mangano said. The economic development compact allows Roslyn O-S, LLC to construct the hotel at 3 Harbor Park Dr. in Port, near the headquarters of research firm NPD Group and filtration systems maker Pall Corporation.

Congratulations To The Class of 2014 By TAB HAUSER

Waiting in the last row to be called up for their diplomas are (l. to r.) Sam Littman, Daniel Keren, Chirag Doshu, Andrew Shlaf, Brian Nelson, and Aaron Mevovala.

On a warm and beautiful evening last week, 402 seniors graduated from Schreiber High School. This was the first time anyone can remember a graduation at 5 p.m., rather than the usual 10 a.m. start of previous years. The ceremony started with the usual playing of “Pomp and Circumstance,” and students followed in a march led by principals, assistant

principals, school board members and a few faculty members. Principal Ira Pernick welcomed the students with the theme of “inspiration.” Pernick said “doubt destroys more dreams than failure does,” and “every one of you is the Michael Jordan of something... discover what you are.” Karen Sloan, president of the school board, gave the students a top 10 list of things the graduates should

CONGRATULATIONS from page 2A do. This included making little things count, laughing, staying curious and keeping their word. Sloan said call an uncle for advice, followed by a laugh from the audience when she followed by saying “not because he is an attorney.” Assistant Principal Julie Torres, who was in charge of the 2014 class since freshmen year, gave an emotional speech as she said she had grown very close to the class over the past four years and would greatly miss the students. She concluded with a quote from Maya Angelou: “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Commencement speaker Murphy Siegel was a highlight for the crowd. First he took a selfie with his fellow students from the stage. He said he was curious to know how to make a speech like this so he looked at 10 videos online, which got a chuckle from the audience. He said there is a question these days that people ask: “What is wrong with the Y generation?” He followed up by saying absolutely nothing is wrong with it. He continued to say the Y generation has great taste in music as opposed to the Springsteen and Beatles “noise.” He said “young adults are not misinformed because they don’t read The New York Times with their burnt toast and coffee. He said this is the smart phone and tablet generation and its news comes from “Upworthy and Buzzfeed”. He continued by saying the Y generation cares about things. He highlighted its involvement for getting a skateboard park, pushing for LGBT rights in school, as well as

raising money for the environment and for cancer. He continued to say the Y generation has a “let’s do” attitude. Siegel captured the audience with the right amount of humor, getting his word out and stepped off to a lively round of applause. School board member Larry Greenstein awarded the Bogart

Scholarship to Lily Li for exemplifying high academic achievement, leadership skills, involvement in school activities and service to the Port Washington community. This was followed by Superintendent Kathleen Mooney, who spoke to the class using a snowflake as one of her themes. She

said each snowflake is unique like each student and “works with others as a snowflakes stick together.” After her speech, she formally accepted the class of 2014, at which time the students erupted with cheers, flinging their graduation caps high in the air.

| LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Trustee Questions Decency In Manorhaven Our country is founded on a cooperative spirit, a sense of fair play and basic decency. When one team wins, the losers don’t run out on the court booing and calling names. No, instead they shake hands, pat the winners on the back, and say.. good game! Last Tuesday when I opened The Port Washington News, I was appalled, but mostly saddened, to see an ad by the entire Residents Party—I have never seen an ad like this on any governmental level after any election. It spoke of continued bitterness, mudslinging, and lies. But, most of all sadly, it spoke of a lack of cooperative team spirit, fair play and basic decency. I’m surprised the newly elected candidates—Priscilla Von Roeschlaub and Kevin Gately—condoned it. Especially when under their very photos James Avena congratulates them for winning Manorhaven trusteeships to advance the Residents Party’s agenda. Rather represent the best interests of all residents, no matter what their views, or their vote, this partisanship clearly and sadly disenfranchises all those residents. Our village government is not about partisan politics or sore losers, but rather about good people you trust to work together for you. In that spirit, our board welcomes Priscilla and Kevin, and we look forward that through our open government they will see firsthand that the mudslinging and lies in this ad are just that. We congratulate them and look forward to working with them, and we also extend our heartfelt appreciation and good wishes to our former trustees Mark Lazarovic and Dorit Zeevi-Farrington and wish them well. — Manorhaven Deputy Mayor Lucretia Steele

AWARD-WINNING WEEKLY

Marina Use Was Invaluable On behalf of the officers and members of the Port Washington Fire Department we wish to thank Steve Wachter for the use of his marina for training this past week. Our fire protection district has a large body of water on which various types of craft pass. Fires on these boats, whether on the water or in a marina, pose special challenges and hazards to the land-based firefighter. The marine environment offers many types of challenges for our team. Whether it’s a small boat fire in a marina or an oceangoing oil tanker, it will take some new training, changes of your structural firefighting tactics, and some changes in our strategies. This type of training is important if not crucial. — Raymond D. Ryan, chief of department

PSEG Questions Remain I have been an outspoken critic of the PSEG transmission project since it became known to our community. I have raised several questions with PSEG associated with this project: • Is the line was necessary based on expected demand? • Is the line necessary to meet summer 2014 demand? • Would this line improve reliability in the event a Storm Sandy would to re-occur? • Has the cost of undergrounding the line been greatly exaggerated? • Why wasn’t the LIRR train route considered? I was recently invited by PSEG to meet with several of their executives to address these questions. Based on that meeting, I wanted to share with the community some of the things I learned. There is a misconception that with this new transmission line, outages will be a thing of the past. This is not be the case. Outages associated with weather events, e.g., Sandy, mostly involved impact on distribution lines, not transmission. While these poles

most likely would survive a hurricane, the distribution lines are still vulnerable. PSEG has also cited their projections for increased demand as rational. PSEG is forecasting approximately a 2 percent to 2.5 percent annual increase in demand over the next decade. This far exceeds the US Energy Information Administration’s projections of between 0.5 percent and 1 percent over this period. Further, no compelling case for this summer was made. With stable population and demographics in the community, and expected efficiencies due to more efficient appliances and lighting, and distributed generation (e.g., solar), PSEG’s demand increase forecasts do not make sense. Excessive cost of undergrounding the line was also mentioned. PSEG indicated that the cost of undergrounding a line was six times the cost of overhead lines. This has not been borne out by the actual costs associated with this project. PSEG indicated that the one mile of buried line through Thomaston was $4 million. The remaining four miles of above-ground line was $10 million. That comes to an increased cost ratio of less than two. Assuming the line is necessary, the lowest cost approach would have been to run the line through the LIRR right of way to Port Washington. It

could have been done above ground, had minimal impact on the community, could have leveraged existing poles and structures, and would have been the shortest route, e.g., two miles versus five miles. PSEG indicated that while this would have been most viable option, the LIRR would not grant sufficient access to get the project done within their time frame. In summary, PSEG had viable alternatives that would have been acceptable to the community, and could have solicited input prior to starting the project. As they say, haste makes waste. — Bob Young

Dog Needs Help, Not Handout What a ridiculous story regarding the poor stray dog. (Port News, June 18-24) The writer tells about a handicapped homeless dog like it’s a Disney story. The truth is, homeless dogs have a miserable life—hungry, dirty, probably loaded with pests and scared. Instead of giving him pretzels and water why didn’t she do the right thing and call the animal shelter to rescue him? He could get cared for and hopefully get adopted. This dog won’t have a Lady and Tramp happy ending unless someone rescues him fast. — Lisa Frappaolo

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.

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.

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

THE

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

15A

At left: Now hear this: More than grass clippings go airborne.

VIEWPOINT

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

can’t easily escape, or for the mother who finally got an infant to sleep. Leaf blower noise seems particularly jarring, especially throttling up, and seems to carry unusually longer distances and penetrate walls and closed windows. But while most people perceive gas-powered blowers to be much louder than other machinery, it doesn’t always measure out in as convincingly, creating doubt about action and enforcement. Even louder than a 115-decibel blower is the sound of a little kid coughing. Some landscapers in my neighborhood have been buying even louder, larger and more inappropriate machinery. I frequently see workers sent out with no hearing protection,

taught to gun up the throttle to maximum, always. Perhaps some business owners are trying to make a point. One East End landscaper told the East Hampton Star that banning or regulating blowers was “the stupidest idea…If they don’t like the noise and people making a living…people should leave town and go somewhere where they don’t have leaves or people to bother.” The Washington State Capitol in Olympia sits in a 290-acre park, from which work crews clear 80 tons (180 dump truck loads) of leaves annually. It’s a big space. Nassau County has 14 incorporated villages that are smaller than 290 acres. Earlier this year, in response to legislators fed-up with gas blower noise and smells, testing determined that using electric tools or rakes would require seven extra workers. In this century, information travels faster than sound, and a lot of old claims about imposing hardships on businesses aren’t going to hold up. Opposing reasonable standards and precautions will grow support for a total ban. Mike Miller has worked in state and local government. Email: mmiller column.gmail.com

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.

Patti Smith Guitarist At Port Library By PORT NEWS STAFF PORTWASHINGTON@ANTONNEWS.COM Songwriter, guitarist, journalist and musical historian Lenny Kaye will appear on the Port Washington library stage on Wednesday, July 2. Kaye, who is best known as the guitarist for poet-rocker Patti Smith, has also worked with such artists as Suzanne Vega, Jim Carroll, Soul Asylum, Kristen Hersh and Allen Ginsberg. Kaye is a respected author, and his seminal anthology of sixties’ garage-rock, Nuggets, has long been regarded as genre-defining. Kaye began amassing an immense record collection while growing up in Queens and Brooklyn in the 1950s. His performance on a song written by his uncle, Larry Kusik, gave the young music fan a sense of himself as a musician, and inspired him to continue playing. Kaye’ reviews for Jazz and Pop magazine would lead to journalistic

work with publications such as Fusion, Crawdaddy and Rolling Stone. Kaye also wrote for Melody Maker and Creem, and edited Rock Scene and Hit Parader during the 1970s. Kaye met poet-singer Patti Smith in 1971, and the two soon began a collaboration that would last the decade, as reflected in four highly acclaimed Arista albums by The Patti Smith Group. After the group’s final performance in September of 1979, Lenny ventured further into a successful producing career that yielded a Grammy nomination for Record of the Year for Suzanne Vega’s 1987 hit single “Luka.” In 1995, Lenny reunited with Patti Smith, creating five studio albums, a retrospective, and a 13th anniversary release of Horses. At the library he will perform original songs from his upcoming CD, as well as earlier compositions and cover songs.

Career Day participants in Weber library

Weber Holds 5th Annual Career Day By CAROLYN LEVIN

PORTWASHINGTON@ANTONNEWS.COM

Firefighters, professional makeup artists, artists, doctors, engineers, teachers, local politicians, musicians, and more. These were just a few of the more than 95 speakers at Weber Middle School’s annual Career Day just before school ended for the summer. All students in grades six, seven and eight listened and learned about a multitude of options for their futures during their first period in the morning. Parents and other community members took time from their busy schedules to participate in the event. Weber has hosted its annual Career Day event since 2010, in an effort to open students’ eyes about different pursuits. It is also a way in which Weber meets the C-DOS (career development and occupational standards) standards for New York State, explained Weber Principal Marilyn Rodahan. “This is a day where the community, families, staff, and students all come together,” Rodahan said. “Every classroom has the ability to learn from two different people,” she continued. “It’s so hard to know what it is that somebody does when they go to work.” Career Day helps connect middle school students to the world of work, Rodahan explained. Weber’s guidance counselors, Barbara Fishman, Elizabeth Shirian, Fran Weiner-James, and Sari Zelman, and their interns, spent months planning the extraordinary event. Mikki Rosman, who interned in the Weber Guidance Department last year, even came back to help coordinate Career Day this year because she loved the

Participants excited to begin Career Day event so much. Many of this year’s speakers have participated before. Others were joining Career Day for the first time. Dawn Berkowitz-Ader, a first time Career Day participant, shared with students the manner in which she recently reinvented herself, starting a brand new career. Berkowitz-Ader, who previously worked in marketing, branding and television production, has recently started her own business, GAALS (Girls Athletics and Life Skills), to empower girls through physical activity. She explained that the idea to start a business came from watching her own children’s experiences.

She conducts weekly classes, events and workshops at the Lutheran Church, Parisi, the JCC, and other local venues. Berkowitz-Ader and other participants in Career Day showed the students the evolution of their career pathways. “Not everyone started out doing what they are doing now,” Rodahan explained, and that is interesting for the students to hear about. Presenter Deborah Feil, a clinical nurse specialist at St. Francis Hospital who grew up in Port Washington and graduated from Weber, answered questions about why she chose her career. “I always wanted to care for

people,” she said. She told students that St. Francis has a program that would allow them to spend four hours shadowing a nurse at the hospital, to see what they do. “Whenever you are ready,” she said, “the opportunity is there.” Local politicians, including Judi Bosworth, who took office in 2004 as the 37th supervisor of the Town of North Hempstead; Dina DiGiorgio, town councilwoman for Port Washington since 2011; and Anna Kaplan, the councilwoman for the 4th District in the Town of North Hempstead; shared with students the varied opportunities for work in public service. Sixth grader Maddie G. was excited before the event to hear about different careers. “We are all looking forward to hearing about the jobs in our community,” she said. Sixth grader Jillian D., who was chosen to help direct the speakers to their assigned classrooms, agreed. “I think it will be fun learning about someone else’s job,” she said. Rodahan warned the speakers ahead of time that they would be greeted by “lots of curious kids asking great questions.” She joked: “Don’t be embarrassed if they ask you how much you make. I tell them that I make $6 million as a principal.” The biographies of this year’s Career Day speakers are posted on Weber’s website at www.portnet.k12. ny.us. The overwhelming consensus, from participants, students and guidance counselors, was that the 5th Annual Career Day was a huge success.

Luigi Ragusa was 17 years old when his parents emigrated from a small town in central Sicily to New York City in 1905. A year earlier, Maria Lipani’s parents left the same town and arrived in New York City when Maria was only three years old. Good Karma—both families settled in East Harlem in a predominantly Italian neighborhood on East 104th Street. And—or for all you romantics—the two eventually met, fell in love, and did what comes naturally. They got married. But that’s not all. In a few years, the duo became a trio when the Ragusa’s son, Michael, was born. Unaware of it at the time, another family settled on East 104th Street that would figure in Mike’s future. Unfazed by the Great Depression, Mike did what other 15-year-olds in his neighborhood were doing with their free time. It’s called hanging out. One evening, Mike and a few friends were hanging out under a street light

Newlyweds Santa and Mike Ragusa at Manorhaven Beach, 1954.

Mike Ragusa aboard the cruiser USS Macon, 1952. when a pretty girl on roller-skates came by. There was nothing wrong with his eyes, so macho Mike said to her, “What’s your name, little girl?” She told him, “Santa.” He smiled and said, “Well, I’ll be seeing you, Santa.” She was 11 at the time, and it wasn’t long until they were an item. And that was just the beginning. After graduating from Benjamin Putnam High School in East Harlem, 18-year-old Mike volunteered for the New York National Guard. The guard was housed at the New York Armory, home of the famed Fighting 69th,

which was close to CCNY, where he was enrolled. And that’s how Mike became the first non-Irishman in the mostly Irish Fighting 69th. “They had fathers, sons, brothers, brothers-in-law, all related,” said Mike. He served for three years and the Korean War broke out. One morning, he was awakened from a sound sleep by a half-dozen of his close friends telling him they were going to join the Navy. That woke him up. “Not without me,” he said. He got up, joined his friends, and down to 346 Broadway in Manhattan they went. By the time they got to the recruiting office, the group numbered 11, all from Mike’s neighborhood. When they had to take an exam to qualify for the Navy, some couldn’t pass it and some changed their minds. “The windup was I was the only one accepted,” said Mike. “I had an absolute great going away party. And that was that. I was in the Navy.” He was 19. Mike’s next stop was Camp at Bainbridge, MD, for three months of boot camp. After graduating, he was assigned to the USS Macon, a cruiser with the Mediterranean Sixth Fleet, which happened to be in Naples, Italy. To get there, Mike and his shipmates had to board a transport from the Brooklyn Army Terminal and sail to Naples. Ordinarily that wouldn’t be so bad, but Mike had never even been on a rowboat in the water. Ever hear of mal de mer? As anyone

who’s ever had it will tell you it’s the worst kind of seasickness you can imagine. In between up-chucks, Mike said to himself, “Is this what it’s going to be like?” When the Macon anchored in Belfast, many aboard had a five-hour liberty. As a gesture of hospitality, each of the sailors was met by a nice Irish girl, who one-on-one would show him around. “The girl I was with asked for my home address,” Mike said, “and without telling me, she sent a package to my mother at home containing Irish linen handkerchiefs and similar items from Ireland.” Nice, huh? Wrong. It was a masterpiece of bad timing. For sitting with Mike’s mother, at that very moment, was the only girl he had ever dated since he met Santa: Santa. “The next thing I know,” Mike said, “I get a Dear John letter when I’m in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Santa was teed off, infuriated, to put it mildly.” You know what they say: “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” Apparently, Santa was so infuriated and, imagining things that were not true, she started to date another young man. “It broke my heart,” Mike said. Thankfully, when he was discharged and home, Murphy’s Law was not upheld, and eight months later, Oct. 9, 1954, they gave each other life sentences. The reception at the Terrace Garden in the Bronx was an Italian wedding to end all Italian weddings. “In those days,” said Mike, “you would send out invitations and the whole family would come including children, plus gatecrashers. We wound up having about 650 people.” Mazel tov. Soon after their marriage, Mike began what-was-to-be a 30-year career with the United States Custom Service Office of Investigations. He rose through the ranks to become Special Agent-in-Charge at JFK Airport, which covered Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties. His distinguished service to his country included undercover assignments where one false step could be fatal. The dénouement? Next Oct. 9, long-time Manorhaven residents, Santa and Mike, will happily celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. So will their children, Linda, Michael Jr., and Louis, not to mention their eight grandchildren. Dio vi benidica, Santa and Michael. May good health and happiness be with you always.

Joseph And His Amazing Technicolor Castmates In celebration of Arts Week, Friends Academy middle schoolers put on a tremendous production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat—despite a rehearsal schedule two weeks shorter than in most years. Sands Point was represented by Axl Holmes as Reuben, one of Joseph’s brothers, and Katarina Mongiardo, Mongiardo played Pharaoh’s butler and also sang among the gold-turbaned chorus of Egyptian women. Thespians and techies from the middle school were supported in this festive musical extravaganza by upper school mentors and parents as well as faculty. Band teacher Jesse Tennyson brought a smidge of gravitas in the paternal role of Jacob. From a semi-secret lair offstage, FA parent Eden White on piano led the musical team of James Liverani (bass), Sam Towse (drums), Sara Alt (percussion) and Ray Matuzza (guitar). But the kids were the stars. The three graceful narrators (Helena Ware, Sarah Weiner and Ife Anyokou) opened the show. Then Jacob, Joseph and all the also-ran brothers appeared. In short order, Joseph—played by Drew Donner of Old

Katarina Mongiardo of Sands Point Westbury—got his fancy-shmancy coat and got sold to a trio of too-cool-for-school shepherds— Danny Dacosta, Joseph Lostritto and Miles Miller (who did double duty as jailers). A detour through the home of Egyptian multimillionaire Potiphar and prison eventually lands Joseph in the Pharaoh’s palace, interpreting dreams for the troubled prince, an Elvis-inspired rock’n’roll ruler

played by Ellis Collier. His brothers, starving, come to Egypt for food, where they must “Grovel, Grovel, Grovel,” unaware that their benefactor is their brother. A spurious accusation against the youngest brother, Benjamin (Glen Head’s Billy Duke), segues into a delightful calypso number (featuring Margaux Blau of Locust Valley), and Joseph and his brothers are reconciled, leading to a joyous finale. The theatrical production was the cornerstone of Arts Week, during which middle schoolers are exempt from regular classes in favor of intensive, hands-on arts study under the direction of local artists. Some students took on creative printmaking with Allison Doherty; others tried pinhole photography with George Ensinger or woodworking with Marc Isaacs. Two courses tapped the power of digital tools: iPad Band and iPad Filmmaking. Kinetic arts were explored in African Drumming and Dance with Yahaya Kamate, an improvisation class led by Kristi Artinian, and a hip hop class with Camille Edwards. It was a perfect send-off to spring break week, giving all the artists a chance at some well-deserved R&R.

Busy Summer For All Things Nautical

By ANDREA WATSON A lot going on now that summer is officially here. Let’s start with Port Sailing School. This learn-tosail facility has tons of activity throughout the week. Still looking for a summer activity for your kids? Port Sailing has a two-week sailing camp for kids, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., which includes the NY Safe Boating Course. There will be three more two-week camps for kids, July 4, July 21, and Aug. 24. A typical day starts with a half hour chalk talk, then sailing until lunch, back out on the water until 3:30 p.m. followed by a review of skills learned. Go online at www.portsailing.com for an application. For adults, there are beginning sailing lessons available. If you sign up for a three-day course— ASA 101—it includes two free four hour rentals of 23-foot boats. So you can learn to sail on beautiful Manhasset Bay and be safe in the protected harbor. What if it rains on your scheduled rental date? No problem, Port Sailing has you covered. If you reserve a Sonar or J24 boat, and there is no wind or it is raining, return the boat within an hour of departure and get full credit for another rental. Can’t beat that! And there is more: if you think you may need assistance in returning to the mooring, just give Port Sailing a call and they will gladly tow you back. Finally, there is Wednesday night racing starting at 6 p.m. and ending at dusk on a Sonar complete with a coach. So check it out, Port Sailing has something for all ages….just give them a call at 516-767-SAIL.

•••• The Nautical Advisory Council (NAC) of the Port Washington Public Library’s purpose in life is to increase the community’s knowledge of all things nautical. One way the NAC does this is by providing boat tours throughout the summer. The NAC partners with the Port Washington Water Taxi (Matt Meyran) and offers tours on selected dates in the three summer months. This year, when the library opened on the day of registering for the boat tours, the tours were sold out within the hour. And there is a reason for this. Besides being out on the water on a weekend morning or afternoon, or a sunset tour on a Thursday, there is always a representative from NAC that can give you all sorts of historical information. Jennifer Wilson-Pines is a walking encyclopedia of all things environmental and seems to have something new to contribute on each tour. Add Matt Meyran with his extensive knowledge of the bay, and the tour is a real treat. While this year’s tours are sold out, Matt and his boats are available so give him a call, 516-455-0411. You’ll have a great time!

•••• Next up are the big regattas in the area. The team of Christophe Killian, Jack Martin and Harrison Vandervort from the Balboa Yacht Club has won the 2014 Rose Cup, a U.S. youth national match racing championship sanctioned by U.S. Sailing and sponsored by Gill, Harken, North U and the event’s

Avimedica, as she sails through the Rose Cup match race on her way to the Oyster Bay Marine Center, where the teams from the Rose Cup and spectators were invited for a tour. founder, the Newport-Balboa Sailing & Seamanship Association. The event was co-hosted by Oakcliff Sailing and the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club in Oyster Bay, hosts of the 2014 Intercollegiate Match Racing National Championship. The Houston, TX, team of Dane Byerly, Howdy Hughes and Collin Scoville were awarded the Nick Scandone Sportsmanship Award based on a vote by the competitors and umpires. The top four skippers earned invitations to the 2014 Governor’s Cup, an international youth match racing event held at the Balboa Yacht Club in Newport Beach, CA, July 14-19. Augustina Barbuto from St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands was the top finishing woman skipper, in sixth place, and earned an invitation to the 2014 U.S. Women’s’ Match Racing Championship, July 10-13, at Oakcliff in their Match 40’s. Four-time U.S. National Match Racing Champion Dave Perry and North U Director Bill Gladstone ran a two-day clinic and continued coaching all the teams during the round robin. “What impressed me the most,” said Perry, “was the tremendous improvement in the match racing and small keelboat racing skill of all 12 teams. Most had little experience in the Sonars, and some had very little experience in formal match racing. By the last day, it was a true Grade 3 match racing regatta with multiple lead changes and boats overlapped at the finishing line.” Perry, also chairman of the U.S. Sailing Match Racing Committee, said, “We are working hard on introducing the 16-20 year old sailors in the U.S. to competitive match racing, and the Rose Cup is our pinnacle event. Video from this year’s event can be seen on its Facebook page. The complete results can be seen on the Oakcliff Sailing event page. Many more photos and videos at www.facebook.com/ RoseCupMatchRace. During the racing in Oyster Bay, Avimedica, one

of the boats in the Volvo Ocean Race, sailed into the harbor on its way to the Oyster Bay Marine Center. With it’s sleek beauty, and huge sails, one has to think that some of the Rose Cup teams may have lost concentration as she sailed through the fleet. After racing for the day, Avimendica was at the dock waiting for the Rose Cup teams to board. Charlie Enright, Skipper and Mark Towell, crew and general manager, were on hand to take the Rose Cup teams and spectators on a tour. (your columnist was one of them!). If that wasn’t enough, Charlie and Mark appeared at the Saturday night dinner at Seawanhaka Corinthian YC to talk about their boat and the Volvo Ocean Race. Their dream that started seven years ago on the set of a Disney film has come true with Team Alvimedica, an international campaign with the youngest crew in the race taking on ocean racing’s toughest challenge. Said Charlie, “Mark and I actually went to university together. In 2006, we were part of the Morning Light project with Roy Disney. We met during the trials for that—we both considered that project to be the beginning of our dream, which is the Volvo Ocean Race. We’ve had a lot of Volvo veterans as our coaches on the Morning Light shoot—Stan Honey, Mike Sanderson, Jerry Kirby, and they set up the foundations for us in terms of high-level ocean racing.” Dave Perry completed the evening with one terrific presentation about the America’s Cup. In the audience were several past America’s Cup skippers: Dawn Riley. executive director of Oakcliff Sailing Center, and Philip Thomson, the father of one of the Rose Cup crew. One just has to believe that these kids left the yacht club with stars in their eyes and went to sleep dreaming of future match races—be it the America’s Cup, the World Match Racing Tour, or a non-match racing event like the around the world Volvo Ocean Race.

Adult Communities Have Come A Long Way By KAREN TALLEY

KTALLEY@ANTONNEWS.COM

Communities that cater to older residents are seeing an upsurge in demand as people live longer and are staying healthier. It wasn’t long ago that people would stay in their original homes as long as possible, and grudgingly move to an independent or assisted living complex. Now, there are homes and townhouses and condominiums that cater to their every need and desire, many of which were built in the last decade. Of course, you have to pay for the comfort, with some prices in the $1 million area. For these prices residents get a host of amenities, including beautifully landscaped grounds, pools, tennis courts and even putting greens. A variety of activities is always on the docket. Sounds like kicking back in an adult community, as shown by the following abodes, is pretty darn cushy.

This house at 16 W. Overlook, which sold for $995,000, has three bedrooms and three full and one half baths. The minimum age for entry is 55-years-old. The home has a formal dining room, as well as an eat-in kitchen. There is a fireplace in the home, as well as a den and two large bedrooms on the second floor, while the master bedroom is on the first. Amenities include inground indoor and outdoor pools and a river view. Total taxes are $20,550.

This home at E. 333 Overlook in the Harborview section was built in 2003, on a 4,45-square-foot lot and has three bedrooms and two full and one half baths. The home, which sold for $760,000, has a formal dining room, a porch and a laundry room. Upstairs features two bedrooms and a bath, with the master bedroom, which has its own bath, on the first floor. Total taxes are $16,400.

This home at 181 Harbor View Dr., also listed as a condominium, has three bedrooms and three baths and a half bath. The home, which sold for $900,000, was built in 2002 and has a 55-year-old age minimum. Located in a gated community, the home has both a formal dining room and an eat-in kitchen, as well as a fireplace. The approximate interior square feet of the abode is 3,375. Total taxes are $20,921.

This home, listed as a condominium, at 123 Pond View Dr., sold for $925,000 and features three bedrooms and two full and one half bath. The home is located in a gated property. Built in 2004, the abode has an entry foyer and an open loft area, used as a family room. There is an in ground pool to enjoy, as well as tennis courts. Total taxes are $13,135, but there is also a common charge.

Port Swimmers Aid Aquatic Club Win By PORT NEWS STAFF

PORTWASHINGTON@ANTONNEWS.COM

The Long Island Aquatic Club competed in the annual Junior Olympic Championships and did very well. Port youngsters Calvin Ye, Derek Knight, and Madeline Competello were all there scoring points for the team, including several top five finishes for Madeline. They were part of qualifying swimmers from teams all over the metropolitan area that showed up for the contest. The top clubs were all in attendance and the competition was fierce. These young athletes battled for the top 16 spots in the preliminary heats. Then they duked it out in finals to score points for their team. It was a battle till the end. The Long Island Aquatic Club succeeded with its 12th straight combined team championship. As if that title wasn’t enough, the team also

won the combined 13-14 age group championship, and swept the inaugural 15-18 Team Challenge awards with the combined men’s and woman’s titles. That’s a lot of hardware for one weekend. Long Island Aquatic Club has long been the top team in the metropolitan area. With swimmers qualifying for the Olympic trials since 1996, the team continues to strive for excellence year after year. This competition is an important stepping stone for these age group swimmers who have trained all year to qualify and compete on this level. The meet was very close down to the very end, and the swimmers battled it out until the last event. Head coach Ginny Nussbaum had this to say about the team: “These young swimmers spent all season working on skills for this event. They were very excited to compete with the best swimmers in the metro area and we are proud of all of our achievements.”
