Alleged Illegal Search Prompts Lawsuit BY CHRIS BOYLE

Family, friends, administrators and teachers assembled on the football field of Carle Place High School last weekend to congratulate 139 graduates as they received their high school diplomas at the school’s 58th annual commencement ceremony. Board of Education President Barry Dennis yielded the welcome address to fellow board member John DiFrisco, whose son, Jack, was among the graduates. In his speech, DiFrisco told the graduates to celebrate their

What began as a quiet Sunday evening at a Westbury restaurant quickly escalated when Nassau County police officers and fire marshals conducted a surprise search of the premises... without the benefit of consent, probable cause, or a search warrant, the establishment’s owners claim. The owners of La Rosita Restaurant and Grocery, Rosa Bonilla and her son Michael, held a press conference on Thursday, July 26 outside of their 150 Post Ave. eatery where their lawyer, Westbury Village Justice Thomas F. Liotti, announced their intention to sue Nassau County for the violation of their Constitutional Fourth Amendment rights. “This place was raided by Nassau County Police and Fire Marshals on Sunday, June 22, at 10 p.m. They came into the premises without a search warrant, harassing my clients like storm troopers, and went through the entire premises,” he said. “Nassau County violated my clients’ Civil Rights, and we are going to be suing Nassau County and the Fire Marshal.” As of press time, Nassau County is keeping quiet on the issue. When reached for a comment, County

WHS Grads Remember Classmate After four years of hard work and unforgettable memories, the Westbury High School Class of 2014 received their diplomas at

a commencement ceremony on Saturday, June 28 at the Tilles Center at LIU Post’s campus. Principal Manuel Arias called the names of the students to receive their diplomas. While most students were at the commencement ceremony

to graduate in person, one student received his diploma in spirit. The officers of the Class of 2014 honored student Aaron Allen, who passed away in August 2013. His

WHS GRADS from page 1 mother Lavette Smith walked in his honor. Smith thanked Aaron’s classmates and the Westbury community for never forgetting her son and for all of the support they have given her in her hard times. Class President Therline Boyer gave tribute to Allen and dedicated the class yearbook and the commencement ceremony to him. “Aaron was a young man who embodied what the class of 2014 stands for,” said Boyer. “He will always be in our hearts as we continue our journeys.” The commencement ceremony marks a rite of passage for the Class of 2014, according to Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Mary Lagnado. “You are closing the door to childhood and opening the door to adulthood,” she remarked. Students will be leaving their comfort zones to challenge themselves and to move on to a new path

of growth and discovery. “You will challenge yourself in different ways and it will be a time of tremendous academic and personal growth,” said Lagnado. Many of the graduating seniors dressed their cap and gowns with different color chords to represent different academic honors including the National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, French Honor Society, Art Honor Society, and many more. Awarded the honor of valedictorian was Brandon Braithwaite, who shared wisdom with his classmates in his speech. He congratulated his fellow classmates on their achievements and advised his peers to chase their dreams and to not look back. “As you all take the next step in your lives, wherever it may be, put forth your best effort,” he said. “Advance to unparalleled self confidence. Do the things that fulfill your heart’s desires.” Inspiring her classmates was Class

of 2014 student speaker, Clairiola Etienne. In her speech, she displayed her life struggles and how she has succeeded despite much adversity. 2014 marks Etienne’s fourth year living in this country. From growing up in Haiti with little to no opportunity, to graduating from Westbury High School, Etienne will be attending Vassar College in the fall on a full four-year scholarship. “Where I am right now is the result of my past

and the hardships I have faced,” she explained. Etienne gave credit to her guidance counselor, and her teachers. “We all have been waiting and working so hard for this moment,” Etienne addressed to her peers. “Take pride in your achievements.” No matter what happens in the future, Lagnado advised the students to remember to come back to where it all began, Westbury High School.



CP GRADS from page 1 accomplishments, as they are “a prelude to what lies ahead.” “Never stop challenging yourself, and don’t be afraid of mistakes,” he said. In her salutatory address, Jillian Mannarino reminisced about the past 13 years, while valedictorian Francesca Lim said in her speech, “Go ahead and change your minds, follow your passions and stay true to yourselves.” Superintendent of Schools David Flatley challenged the graduates to show gratitude by doing such tasks as helping to clear the table and take out the trash. “As you do these things, realize that gratitude is a great virtue,” he said. Student Organization President Alec Visslailli used his time at the podium to reflect on his past high school experiences. Student Matthew Pasquarella, who gave the farewell address, said emphatically, “Push yourself to be the greatest human beings you can be.” Before receiving their diplomas, Principal Thomas DePaola urged the students to take the valuable lessons they had learned in high school and

begin their new journey. Providing musical accompaniment during the ceremony was the high school band, conducted by Kevin Kavanagh. In addition, a select number of seniors performed John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s “In My Life.” — From the CP School District

LAWSUIT from page 1 Attorney Carnell Foskey, who is representing Nassau in the suit, merely stated that “the County does not comment on pending litigation.” Liotti stated that police officers and fire marshals searched the restaurant from top to bottom, including the basement, despite the owners’ refusal to grant consent and being told to leave. He also claimed that customers were harassed, asked to present identification and then told to exit the establishment. “But what police didn’t know at the time is that there were surveillance cameras inside of the premises,” Liotti said. “Everything that they did — aside from the audio — was recorded and is available.” The video indicates that on the night in question, up to ten police officers and fire marshals did indeed conduct a search of the restaurant, including the basement. At one point in the video, an officer takes what appears to be an I.D. card from a patron, attaches it to his clipboard and walks away. When asked what police claimed they were looking for, Liotti stated that their answer was vague, but alleges that the search was, in reality, racially motivated. “This is something, unfortunately, that the Hispanic community has to deal with on a daily basis, not only

Michael Bonilla, Rosa Bonilla, Thomas F. Liotti, and Luis Rodriguez at a press conference last week. in Nassau County, but throughout the nation. It is discrimination and it should not occur,” he said. “If the police believed that a crime was being committed, they had every right to apply for a search warrant. They did not do that. They just came in and used their power to harass my clients, who are both United States citizens. They did nothing wrong.” The Bonillas were served with what Liotti called “bogus” tickets during the course of the search for


minor infractions, such as alleged consumption of beer on premises; the restaurant currently has a license to sell beer but not to serve it. Liotti noted that a fire marshal has the right to enter and inspect a business without any notice, but that the presence of the police was both unwarranted and unlawful. Michael Bonilla expressed both frustration and anger over the alleged treatment he claims both he and his mother suffered during the course of


the police and fire marshal search. “I don’t know what they were looking for. They stated that it was routine but we were the only business searched. No one else was and this incident has hurt my business,” he said. “I really respect the police, because they’re supposed to protect us, but we’re not so sure now because they’re violating our rights as citizens. We feel that’s unfair. We pay taxes and work every day. We do what’s right.”

Most of the pho offered at Pho Maxima were made with beef with the exception of curry chicken rice noodle soup with coconut and chicken rice noodle soup. They have a limited dessert menu but the Vietnamese iced coffee is also a great way to end the meal on a sweet note. Coffee is another legacy of the French colonists who introduced the crop in the late 19th century with many plantations in the central highlands. Because milk was sometimes difficult to get, the French and Vietnamese used sweetened condensed milk to add to their dark roast coffee. Pho Maxia is located at 817 Carman Ave. Find out more at www.

Rushmore Teachers Say Goodbye After 28 years in the education system, Jeanne Cunningham is retiring from Rushmore Avenue School. Starting out as an aide for a year, Cunningham worked at Cherry Lane School for 17 years and has been at Rushmore for the last 10 years. One of her favorite elements over the past decade was the notoriety. “You feel like a movie star when you go out. The kids on the playground will call out, ‘Hello, Ms. Cunningham!,” she recalls. “So, you know, you do feel like a movie star sometimes. It’s cute.” Cunningham says she went into teaching because one of her biggest role models was a teacher. “I had a 5th grade teacher, Mr. Dibble, and he was great and I liked the way he ran the classroom,” she says. “I thought ‘I could do this as well. I could do a good job.’ I thought I wanted to try and do as good a job as he did and that really set the mood for me. I just really wanted to be able to do a really good job.” Starting out as a second grade teacher, Cunningham has worked with most grades, but is retiring as a

sixth grade teacher. Even though she has been in the field for many years, she still has the same passion as when she first started. “I loved teaching and I really enjoyed all these classes. Like anything, it has its good parts and bad parts but overall it’s been wonderful.” Cunningham says she’ll miss working with the amazing teaching staff at Carle Place. “I have to say I was very fortunate. I had great colleagues. They were all fantastic,” she says. “I have a lot of

great friends and colleagues here.” Joining Cunningam in retirement from Rushmore is Joyce Ragon, a special education teacher. She ends her career after 32 years in the education system; 25 of which were at Rushmore. She says the relationships she’s made with her students are one of her most valuable memories. “There are some students that you just make a connection with. They’ll always say hello and always

talk to you. You know because you’ve created that bond. So those are the things that stick with us,” she says. Ragon says that her mother was one of her inspirations to join the education field. “My mother was a teacher and I remember going into school with her a couple times. I saw my mother was very happy and I liked working with children. I thought it would be a good career,” she says. Ragon does not intend, however, to make this the final goodbye. “It’s a very special place, a warm, familiar atmosphere that we have here,” Ragon said. “So, you know, that’s going to be hard to say goodbye to. We’ll keep coming back to parties and things like that so they won’t forget us.” She says she’ll miss the people she’s worked with over the years, but that she’s looking forward to retirement. “It’s the people, our friends that we work with, our colleagues,” Ragon says. “Everyone has been so happy for us and a little jealous too. But they’re happy for us and they know we’re ready. We know we’re ready, had a great career, and a great run here. We’re just ready to embark on other things in our lives.”

HOMETOWN WEBSITE! Egg Drop Tests Science Skills eggs, the students gathered around the egg drop zone and cheered as the school’s custodian dropped the eggs from the roof. There were 16 successful drops, one of which was designed by Emiline Biggin and Rita Masiello. The pair constructed a protective case for their egg using a balloon, a small box, tape and marshmallow fluff. “We wanted to give it a soft landing,” said Biggin. The girls said building their project not only brought them closer together as friends, but also taught them about teamwork. “We learned that if we work together, we can do anything,” said Masiello. “Our ideas just came together.” “This was a great way to end our school year with a longstanding tradition,” said Superintendent David Flatley. — From the Carle Place School District

It was raining eggs recently at Rushmore Avenue’s annual egg drop. More than 100 sixth grade students participated in the contest, which challenged them to protect a raw egg as it was dropped from the school’s rooftop to the pavement. According to Principal Susan Folkson, the contest, now in its 30th year, is an enrichment activity that supports the district’s STEM initiative. “We want them to have fun, create hypotheses and find materials that will absorb the impact,” said technology teacher Jim Cunningham, who oversaw the contest with science teacher Jeanne Cunningham. Working in teams, the students prepared for the egg drop by using a variety of materials including marshmallow fluff, stuffed animals, bubble wrap, cereal and even half a football to create their packaging. When it came time to drop the

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

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

Sitting in a lawn chair eating something fresh off the grill and watching fireworks light up the sky marks a time-honored tradition of lounging around, forgetting about the work week ahead. The cotton candy and toy cart makes its way around the perimeter of the park, while the Good Humor and Mister Softee trucks sit nearby, giving the kids a bridge between the music and firework-filled sky. The Nassau Pops put on quite a show each year. From kid smiles to adult “aaahhs,” Independence Day pushes families towards the heart of summer, one pop and sizzle at a time.

The Catch 22’s Of Politics A recent article in the New Yorker about newly elected RepublicanConservative, Texas Senator Ted Cruz is informative in several respects in terms of his successful efforts at what he refers to as “changing the narrative” or in other words, how you turn Justices of the Supreme Court and voters from leaning left to leaning right. He is going to be a candidate for the Presidency in 2016. This article is not an endorsement of him. His voice is that of a front runner but it also defines the battleground of electoral politics as well as the future of government. His argument is that Republican-Moderates who act like Democrats lose elections while Conservative, hardcore Republicans win. But Cruz’s message also trickles down to politics and local government at every level where politicians are faced with Catch 22 decisions at every turn. Catch 22 simply means that no matter what you decide you lose. This is why when faced with difficult decisions elected officials compromise. In looking at local government we know that our politicians have not made the tough decisions because

Westbury Village Justce

THOMAS F. LIOTTI they would lose political support and that of special interests. So it becomes easier for them to delude the public with public relations that mask the true hypocrisies of government decision making. So, if elected officials dare to address consolidation of school and other special districts they run the risk of alienating the officials in those positions as well as voters. So the right decision is put on the back

burner while special interests feather their own nests, growing in power and making it impossible for elected officials to change the paradigms on which they are dependent. The dilemma or Catch 22 is faced in dealing with unions, patronage, budgets and almost every facet of government. You cannot change an assessment system if lawyers are dependent upon it and contribute mightily to campaigns. You cannot buck unions if they give you money. You cannot question the orders that you receive from the political clubhouses because they gave you their nomination. It’s not that all politicians are dishonest but they are conflicted. Ted Cruz has the right idea for all of us and that is that we need to think about solutions that will change the narrative and take us out of the box of Catch 22 decision making.

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. Our record in this area is excellent, and there is no upfront cost, because we are only paid after we save you money.

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

From Editor


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

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

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

SLIRR Commuters Have Ways To Survive Strike Eye on

the Island

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

THE WEEKEND - JULY 2 - 8, 2014

Now Where Was I? Oh yeah, I was just telling you guys a little bit about myself when I was interrupted by the powers that be because I reached my 500 word limit. They say all the lights on Old Country Road started flashing. All the gates on the Westbury crossings of the LIRR suddenly lowered, and the fire sirens on Post Ave were sounded. No, we weren’t being invaded by Martians. It was all because I typed my 501st word! After that, I don’t even know if it pays to tell you my whole life story since I may be writing for the Dunkin’ Donuts Times in a couple of weeks. But as long as I am here, I’d still like to get a company car out of this deal. I was told that the only way I’ll get one is if I agree to deliver The Westbury Times. Why don’t they ask me to stand on Post and Maple while they’re at it? “Hey, get your Westbury Times here.” Once the thousands of people in the Westbury area become aware that I am a creative geniu- geniou- (let me try Spell Check) ‘genius’, then I’ll be in a perfect position to negotiate for more than a car. That’s when I plan to re-ask the boss if the company would contribute to my 401K. I said “re-ask” because the first time I asked her she must have had an ear malfunction and handed me a bottle of 409 to clean my desk. Doesn’t being on the job an entire week, entitle me to some respect? (Did you just say, “no”)? In the last issue, my column was printed in the worst possible location for none to see. On the top left of my page was the advertisement for the Coloplast Magic Pill followed by the Winthrop Hospital spread, then the Somerset Gardens Assisted Living pitch which was next to the Donohue Cecere Funeral Home section followed by my article. So you got depressed, more depressed, extremely depressed and

sHooting tHe breeZe

FRED MORENO buried. Right before my article there should be a warning sign: “Caution, Mood Swing Ahead!” Now I believe the editor is waiting to see how my column is received by the community before they meet my demands. I have no problem with that since my column has already been battle tested in Carle Place for the past 20 years. Month after month letter after letter would pour into the editor’s office of the Carle Place Frog Horn regarding my monthly column. I would like to publicly thank John Hommel, president of the Carle Place Civic Association, for allowing me to continue writing despite the horrific feedback. And to my wife, JoAnn and three daughters Julie, Karen and Kristine who wanted, “Shooting the Breeze” to backfire, all I could say is, “Na, na, na, na, na.” As the weeks go by and you become more familiar with me, you will realize that I am more than a writer. I am your voice. I will fight (a. whoever b. whomever) I need to let OUR voices be heard. Speaking about voices, I think I’m hearing a familiar one. “You know JoAnn, I’m trying to write an article and …What?...Julie called?...What did she say?...The lights on Old Country Road are blinking?... Come to think of it, I also hear the fire sirens on Post Avenue. I better get out of here.

THE WEEKEND - JULY 2 - 8, 2014


BID Talks Revitilization BY PAIGE MCATEE

When The Space at Westbury opened its doors in October 2013, the village of Westbury held its breath to see the impact the renovated movie theater would have on the downtown. But nine months later, it can rest at ease knowing that the Space has succesfully ignited Westbury’s revitilization, bringing in thousands of visitors each week and doing wonders for local businesses. The Business Improvement District (BID) recently discussed Westbury’s downtown and what was to come. “We’ve seen a tremendous impact that The Space has had on Post Avenue,” said Mayor Peter Cavallaro. From rock bands, to comedians, to circus acts, The Space offers a diverse span of first-class concerts, performances, events and catered affairs. Representing The Space at the BID meeting was owner Cyrus Hakakian and Executive Director Bruce Michael, who gave an update on the progress of this new Post Ave. attraction. The performing arts center has jumpstarted all of the other businesses’ successes in the downtown.

“We bring in thousands of people a week and that’s not an exaggeration,” said Michael. “To get this amount of activity in our first year of operation is fantastic.” Before the BID started improving the downtown, there were a lot of empty storefronts. But thanks to The Space, businesses are thriving, according to BID’s Executive Director, Dawn Blinn. She says that there are now only two vacant storefronts and three empty small business buildings. “The vacancy rate is down to one of the lowest it’s ever been,” said Blinn. “The businesses that are in the BID district are reporting that they are doing phenomenally well since The Space opened.” Post Ave. restaurants and bars have seen lots of traffic from theatergoers looking for somewhere to go for a drink or bite to eat before or after an event at The Space. Some surrounding businesses are already staying open later to accommodate show-goers, which has allowed them to thrive. In order to better the downtown even more, The Space looks to collaborate with surrounding businesses. “Having this theater anchoring the

Members of the Westbury BID, Village trustees and representatives from The Space talked about the future of Westbury’s downown. village is a phenomenal opportunity for everybody,” said Michael. Cavallaro’s vision is for Westbury to become one of the top downtown areas on Long Island in the next five to 10 years. He challenged the BID board to help achieve this goal. BID president James D’Agostino said that the board is looking to hold more events, such as concerts, car shows and street fairs, in order to attract more visitors to the downtown area. The next BID event takes place Tuesday, July 8 at 7 p.m. when the

North Shore Pops will be holding a concert at the Piazza. The annual street fair will be held on Sept. 13, and will feature rides, vendors, and entertainment. Local bands are also invited to volunteer their time to perform at the street fair. In the past couple of months, many people have come up to Cavallaro to talk about the tremendous development of the downtown area. “We have a lot more we have to do, but it’s nice to see the byproduct of a lot of work,” said Cavallaro.

I have a nine year-old cat that is mostly indoors. I only let him out in my backyard when I’m outside with him. I feed him dry food and every evening I give him a half of a can of cat food as a treat. He loves it! I also give him some cat treats from the pouches when he asks for them. Over the past few months I’ve noticed that he is eating less dry food and is holding his head to the side when he eats. His breath has not changed. It’s always pretty bad. I’m afraid it’s his teeth and I’m scared to put him under anesthesia. What can I do? Any help would be appreciated. — Carla

About the Vet:

Stress Less Change Limiting Beliefs Correct Breathing Habits Learn How To Eat Healthy “Improper breathing is the cause of most illnesses today” ~ Dr. Andrew Weil

Dear Doctor DiGrazia,

Dental disease is common in cats, especially for those who eat canned food. Tartar buildup on teeth leads to gingivitis, cavities and even infected roots. The bacteria that fester in these diseased teeth can spread to other body organs through the blood stream. This can result in heart, liver, or kidney disease. It is always best to keep the mouth as healthy as possible not only to avoid spread of disease, but for the comfort of the animal. When your cat chews and holds his head to the side, he’s avoiding using one side of his mouth due to pain. This is usually an indication of loose or rotten teeth. When dental disease is this advanced, it is best to have them professionally cleaned by a veterinarian. Many safety procedures are performed to ensure the animal makes it through anesthesia successfully. You can discuss with your veterinarian what their protocol is for dentals and do what you feel is best for your cat. After the teeth are clean, there are many options for keeping them healthy afterwards such as brushing or a mouthwash. Good Luck. — Mara DiGrazia, D.V.M.

Westbury Mom Wins First In Triathlon BY GEORGE HABER

Heidi Roussis of Westbury recently won first place in her age category in the annual “Tri One On” Triathlon in Hempstead Harbor in Port Washington. Roussis, 41, took top honors in the Over-40 category in the competition, which required contestants to swim, bike and run a total of 16.1 miles. She is a member of the Sid Jacobson “Barracudas” Triathlon Team which included five other participants who placed among the top three in their respective age categories. Roussis completed the triathlon in 1hr 10 min. 18 sec.; a faster time than in the 2013 triathlon, in which she also placed first in her age category. More than 700 men and women from New York City as well as Nassau and Suffolk Counties participated in

the Port Washington Triathlon this year. The Fitness Program Director at the Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center (SJJCC) in East Hills, Roussis is the mother of two small children and has been participating in triathlons for the past three years. “Triathlon participation is one of the fastest growing amateur sports in the country,” she said. “From my own perspective, endurance training ties in well with being a mom. But triathlon athletes come from all walks of life. Our team had men and women from 14 to 60 and included a father-daughter team, married couples, and retirees, as well as runners in their thirties and forties.” Roussis says she is training to run in the annual New York City marathon in November and hopes to compete in a “full ironman triathlon” in the future.
