Iraq/Afghanistan War Monument Planned Post 9/11 veterans to be recognized for their service in Eisenhower Park

H

eroes Among Us, a nonprofit organization, has joined with the United Veterans Organization of Nassau County, local Veterans of Foreign Wars groups and the Nassau County Executive’s office to build a monument in Eisenhower Park to honor all post 9/11 servicemen and women. The monument will join other memorials in Veterans Memorial Park which honor veterans who served in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The Iraq/Afghanistan Veterans Monument will be the only monument of its kind on Long Island and one of the first in New York State honoring the courage, dedication, and bravery of United States servicemen and women who fought in military conflicts after 9/11. Over this 20-year period, 7,000 servicemen and women died in battle and 30,000 post 9/11 veterans have died by suicide. The monument will provide a permanent reminder of their service and provide a much-needed sanctuary and

Julie Price, an adjunct assistant professor and faculty advisor at New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury, said her students have been aiding the effort by the Glen Cove-based nonprofit.

“In the few months we have been working with these groups, we have raised $27,000 towards the cost of the monument with $120,000 still needed to get to our goal,” Price said. “Heroes Among Us, and local veterans groups would like to unveil the Iraq/ Afghanistan veterans monument

sometime in 2022.” “We are excited to have the assistance from our community to properly respect and honor our veterans in building this monument, which we feel was overdue,” said Virginia Cervasio, founder of Heroes Among Us.

Oyster Bay Animal Hospital Awarded “Vet Of the Year” By Long Island Animal Advocacy Organization BY NATALIA VENTURA

nventura@antonmediagroup.com

T

he Animal General of East Norwich has been named “2021 Veterinarian of the Year” by the Long Island Orchestrating for Nature (LION) organization. LION is the leading animal advocacy organization on Long Island; they were founded at the end of 2012 according to John Di Leonardo, the Founder, President, and Director of Campaigns for LION. They have systematically arrived at fairs showcasing wild animals with LION having managed to convince all of them to end the use of wild animal acts. They have also taken on circuses such as the Ringling Brothers and Cole Brothers Circus. “We had such a big impact on people not buying tickets for Cole Brothers. We ended up turning away thousands of dollars of ticket sales,” stated Leonardo. About a thousand animals are rescued per year from different types of abuse. In order to maintain the well-being of their rescues, LION works with different veterinarians. Their primary veterinarian is Animal General of East Norwich. According to Leonardo, the animal hospital puts in “tremendous efforts and dedication to providing free and low-cost veterinary care to wildlife and domestic fowl rescued from cruelty.” For the past four years, LION has been going to Animal General as their primary veterinarian. Both domestic and wild birds are taken to them. “Animal General is very knowledgeable and has a very good reputation. We’ve been very impressed with their services, it’s very hard to find a very knowledgeable avian vet. Especially for the issues that we deal with. We bring them to Animal General, and we are always confident that they’ll know what to do. They guide us in the appropriate treatments for these animals. Over the years, they have been discounting our services substantially, and even provide us with a lot of pro bono services. I’ve been wanting to recognize them for a really long time. We are very proud to have presented them with LION’s Veterinarian of the Year for 2021,” commented Leonardo. The plaque awarded to the animal hospital featured an image of a chicken, and LION also gave a plant-based care package from Cindysnacks

The medical director at Animal General of East Norwich, Dr. Ellen Leonhardt, and veterinarian Dr. Danielle Perrone, are on the advisory board of Volunteers for Wildlife, a local wildlife rehabilitation organization. Leonardo stated, “Whether we are asking them to carefully remove ducttape from a goose who was strapped with fireworks, amputate the wing of a chicken maimed by animal sacrifice, bring back to life ailing birds saved from live slaughter markets, or treat animals suffering from years of neglect at Long Island petting zoos, we know that our rescues are in good hands when we bring them to Animal General for an appointment.” Dr. Leonhardt added, “VCA Animal General of East Norwich is proud of our on-going collaborative efforts, working alongside John Di Leonardo, Long Island Orchestrating for Nature (LION), and numerous other wildlife rescue groups within our community. We pride ourselves in helping the underserved, moving towards a healthier and safer environment for these delicate creatures, each deserving individualized care, attention, and veterinary medical expertise.” Animal General is the second veterinarian in Oyster Bay to be named

Four Seniors Named Regeneron 2022 Semifinalists

F

our Roslyn High School seniors were selected as semifinalists in the Regeneron Science Talent Search 2022 competition. Congratulations to Lindsay Fabricant, Maya Groothuis, Harshita Sehgal, and Hailee Youn. “I’m so proud of these fabulous four,” said Dr. Allyson Weseley, Roslyn School District’s Coordinator of Secondary Research. “Research was made more challenging by the pandemic, but they persevered and rolled over every obstacle in their paths.” The Regeneron Science Talent Search is the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors. It provides students with a national stage to present original research and celebrates the hard work and novel discoveries of young scientists who are bringing a fresh perspective to significant global challenges. The 2022 semifinalists were selected from 1,804 applications received from 603

Maya Groothuis high schools across 46 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and eight other countries. Scholars were chosen based on their exceptional research skills, commitment to academics, innovative thinking and promise as scientists as demonstrated through the submission of their original, independent research projects, essays and recommendations. Fabricant’s project—The Construction and Simulation of a Four-Finger Soft Robotic Gripper—involved creating a soft robotic gripper, which she devised a way to test. In the second phase of her research, she developed a simulation in MATLAB to better understand

Harshita Sehgal challenges with soft robotic grippers. Groothuis’ project—Climate Change Action: The Role of Environmental Efficacy Beliefs—used a regression analysis to look at factors that predict people’s willingness to engage in environmentally friendly behaviors. She found that believing the action was easy and believing the action would be effective in the fight against climate change were both important predictors of taking action. Sehga’s project— Understanding the Evolutionary Development of Radio-Resistance in the Brassicae Family—investigated radio resistance in plants.

Having learned that some plants actually thrived near the Chernobyl plant following the nuclear accident, Harshita identified a number of genes that could protect plants against the negative effects of radiation. Youn’s project—Why We Vote: How Positive Descriptive Norms and Holding a Minority Political Viewpoint Increase Citizens’ Intention and Responsibility to Vote— looked at the potentially conflicting effects of thinking a lot of people will vote in an election and believing that your viewpoint clashes with the majority viewpoint in leading people to vote. She found that people’s intention to vote was almost entirely

determined by their belief that many other people were voting. Each semifinalist and their schools will be awarded $2,000. Later this month, 40 of the 300 semifinalists will be selected as finalists and granted a trip to Washington, D.C., where they will compete March 10-16 for part of the $1.8 million in prize money. Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc., based in Tarrytown, has funded the contest since 2016. While the sponsors have changed since the competition started in 1942, the contest has been run continuously by the nonprofit Society for Science. —Submitted by Roslyn Public Schools

Davis Lane Pigeons Won’t Fly The Coop BY JOSEPH SCOTCHIE

jscotchie@antonmediagroup.com

T

he Village of Roslyn Board of Trustees held its first public meeting of the new year with its Zoom policy still in place. The board discussed several measures, including banning leaf blowers and paying off old fees. Residents of Davis Lane were also reassured that a pigeon coop will not mean actual pigeons escaping their confines and making noisy trips around the neighborhood. The board approved an amendment to a local ordinance, one that would prohibit the operation of gas-powered leaf blowers. The new law, Mayor John Durkin said, would go into effect in the spring and would not apply to other leaf blowers or to lawnmowers. Lavehim Behreez, a Davis Lane resident, zoomed into the meeting to defend the “custom-made” pigeon coop occupying his backyard.

Behreez, who moved to Roslyn in 2017, said the coop had a sentimental value to him. Behreez maintained that the coop keeps alive the memory of his late mother both for him and other family members. Originally, nine pigeons settled in their new Roslyn home. Since then, one bird has indeed flown the coop, but Behreez maintains the other eight are happy in the Davis Lane residence. Behreez added that all of his neighbors are OK with the coop. Not only that, neighbors bring their children to visit the property and admire the coop. “All the kids look at it,” he told the board. The issue only came up when Behreez was constructing a waterfall in his backyard. That structure, he added, did not need a building permit. During the course of the building process, a neighbor spied the pigeon coop and took photos of it. That incident Behreez said has been an exception. In response to a question from Craig

Westergaard, other neighbors have filed no complaints against the coop. Durkin brought up potential noise problems and health issues, while Marshall Bernstein added that he wanted more input from local neighbors. Durkin seconded that view. “We want letters in the affirmative,” he said. “We don’t want to offend anyone.” Behreez emphasized the sentimental value in keeping the coop. “This is the only thing left from my mother,” he reiterated. “I won’t add anything to it.” The board will take up the issue at the February meeting. This year is the 90th anniversary of the founding of the village. Richard Branciforte, current president of the Roslyn Chamber of Commerce, also made a video appearance to announce that the chamber has numerous events planned for the occasion, including a Founders Day event in June. He added that the Roslyn Landmark Society and the Bryant Library staff members will be assisting

the chamber in celebrating the anniversary. The days when an ordinary resident of Roslyn could take the LIRR to Flushing Meadow and take in a Mets game for $2.50 a ticket has, along with a Tom Seaver hard slider, long passed. So it was with real excitement that Branciforte announced that the chamber has secured tickets for a New York Mets-Atlanta Braves ballgame sometime in June. With his other Mets fans, Branciforte hoped that Jacob DeGrom would be back and in action to toss that game. In other business, the board approved a 2015 $3 million Public Improvement Serial Bond interest payment of $124,034, due next month. It also approved a payment of renumeration for wastewater treatment that covered the first six months of 2021, one that totaled $300,134.

Community Comes Together To Conserve Water

Hicksville Water District exceeds goal in reducing warm weather water pumpage in 2021

T

he Hicksville Water District (HWD) is proud to announce that it met its goal of reducing outdoor water pumpage in 2021. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has established a goal for all water providers to reduce outdoor/peak season water pumpage by 15 percent when compared to 2012. For Hicksville, this would have meant reducing outdoor water pumpage by 45 million gallons. The HWD exceeded this goal, reducing outdoor water pumpage by 79 million gallons, or 26 percent. “Conserving water is one of the most effective things we can do to protect our precious water source, while also helping to reduce the

District’s operating expenses and keeping costs as low as possiblem,” HWD Chairman Nicholas Brigandi said. “We are thrilled and so proud to see such a dramatic decrease in water usage and we have no one but our residents to thank for that. Not only does this give us confidence that our messaging, promotion and development of water conservation tools has been effective, but it demonstrates that our residents are aligned in our goal of reducing water consumption.” Last year was one of the HWD’s most proactive

years in its history when it comes to the promotion of water conservation. The district conducted public outreach programs throughout

the year, perhaps one of its most important being the promotion of smart irrigation controllers. These controllers are the best way to conserve water during irrigation season, as they use a WiFi connection to read local weather reports and only use the exact amount of water needed to keep residents’ lawns healthy. The district held a smart controller raffle last year and also launched a smart controller rebate program in the summer, the latter of which is still open to residents who apply on the district’s website. Also helping in the

conservation of water is the district-wide switch to smart water meters. These devices feed data directly to the district and instantaneously lets both staff and residents who have signed up for EyeOnWater know how much water is being consumed at any given time. Not only does this help identify high water usage, but also if there is potential for a leak. When excessive water use is not related to a leak, the district regularly reaches out to these residents to alert them of their high water use and provides them with the tools and information needed to reduce consumption. —Submitted by the Hicksville Water District

Farmingdale School District Awarded 360K Grant To Expand Universal Pre-K The Farmingdale Union Free School District has been awarded a $360,000 Universal Prekindergarten (UPK) Expansion Grant from the New York State Education Department (NYSED) to increase prekindergarten availability for four-year-old students. The department awarded these competitive grants based on a district’s plan to serve a community’s highest need schools and students, the level of existing prekindergarten services, and the extent to which a district planned to maximize the total number of eligible fouryear-old children served in its programs, among other factors. These funds may be used during the

2021-22 or 2022-23 school years. Senator Kevin Thomas, who supported the district’s application for the grant, said, “Universal Pre-K is a proven strategy for putting children on a path to success in school and beyond. This UPK Expansion Senator Kevin Thomas

n 1685, Nathaniel Pearsall, the five other original proprietors of the town of Hempstead patent, and the settlers were granted title to the land on which they dwelt. As a proprietor, Pearsall was entitled to claim a 150-acre grant of land within the township and it is thought that his property covered the northwest quarter of the present village of Roslyn Harbor, including much of the land along the northern portion of the shoreline of Hempstead Harbor. When Pearsall died in 1703, he left his extensive farm to his son, Thomas. It is believed Thomas Pearsall built a farmhouse for his family on the property sometime after the mid-18th century. This house at 435 Bryant Ave., in Roslyn Harbor, now incorporated into the estate house Willowmere, (individual component) has been dated to c. 1770, on the basis of molded flat panels above a fireplace that relate to those in other local houses of the period, by Dr. Roger Gerry of the Roslyn Landmark Society. The house was built in place of, and incorporated part of, an earlier house on the site built by Pearsall. Thomas Pearsall and his descendants continued to operate the farm,

and by the 1830s the family holdings had grown to 250 acres, more than a third of the present-day village of Roslyn Harbor. The property included all of the land along the shore of Hempstead Harbor to the northern boundary of the present village line as well as land on the east side of Glenwood Road. The Pearsall farm remained in the family until 1839 when the land was subdivided into several parcels and sold at auction. Mr. and Mrs. William Cairns bought the Pearsall farmhouse and approximately 20 acres of land and transformed it into a country estate, which they named Clifton. In 1882 the estate passed to the Cairns’ daughter, Mrs. Aaron Ward, wife of Admiral Ward, USN, who renamed it Willowmere.

Call To Service On MLK Day At ‘Yes We Can’

orth Hempstead Town Supervisor Jennifer DeSena joined with local elected officials, community leaders, members of the NAACP Westbury/ New Cassel Branch and hard-working members of the Town’s Parks Department led by Deputy Commissioner Tyronza Murray, to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. at the “Yes We Can” Center in Westbury. The town distributed 450 free care packages to local community members. These care packages contained free COVID-19 home tests, masks, and hand sanitizer. DeSena thanked and commended those in attendance for working to distribute these care packages, especially the Westbury High School and Middle School students and community leaders who helped hand them out. As Dr. King once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: what are you doing for others?” These inspiring young leaders certainly answered the call to service and demonstrated the impact one of Dr. King’s most enduring quotes. —Submitted by the Town of North Hempstead

Oyster Bay High School Fencer Tops Long Island In Tournament

yster Bay High School (OBHS) junior Aurora Aschettino went undefeated at the Brentwood Holiday Invitational Fencing Tournament, placing first in women’s foil out of more than 50 student-athletes from across Long Island and Westchester County. “I was so excited, I really wanted to win. There was a lot of great competition there,” Aschettino said. Brentwood High School holds the invitation-only tournament annually, except in 2020 due to the pandemic. High school fencers from Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester counties compete across six categories—men’s and women’s foil, saber and épée. In total, more than 280 fencers from 15 high schools competed for the championship in each event. Aschettino won all of her six pool bouts and only received one touch against her in all six rounds—bringing her to the number one seed. From there, she headed to the direct elimination rounds. Aschettino earned a bye in the first round and went undefeated

Her final bout was against Melina Nicou of Commack, whom she defeated 15-5. “Aurora has been improving so much over the past couple of years,” OBHS fencing coach John Bruckner said. “She hit the finals and came out number one.” Aschettino’s fencing career began in 2019 on the OBHS team. She then joined the East Coast Fencing Club

in 2020 and has had a passion for the sport ever since. “I really like how fast-paced it is. When something you plan out works, it’s so rewarding. There’s a lot you can get out of it,” Aschettino said. “The Oyster Bay coaching staff has been so supportive, and my coach, Gidon Retzkin at East Coast Fencing Club, helped make me the fencer I am today.”

he Greater Long Island Running Club 50K run at Heckscher State Park on Sunday, Feb. 27, has been selected by the Mountain, Ultra & Trail Council of USA Track & Field to once again serve as the USATF 50K National Road Race Championship. The event will once again be conducted over a 5K loop on a paved path at Heckscher State Park, giving runners from all over the United States the chance to explore this beautiful piece of Long Island. The 50K will consist of 10 5K loops, and the accompanying 25K will consist of five 5K loops. The run will be conducted under the management of the Greater Long Island Running Club, with GLIRC’s Carl Grossbard and Jim Murray serving as the co-directors of the event. The first male and first female finisher in the 50K run will be automatically selected to be part of the 12-runner United States team that will compete in the IAU World 50 K Championship to be held on May 28, 2023 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, so long as they meet the minimum qualifying times of sub 3:00:00 for the men and sub 3:30:00 for the women.

How Companions In Courage Keeps Hope Alive

Nonprofit provides inspiration for children’s hospital patients BY DAVE GIL DE RUBIO

dgilderubio@antonmediagroup.com

W

hen NHL Hall of Famer Pat LaFontaine founded Companions in Courage (CiC) following his 1997 retirement, it was with the goal of creating a foundation to raise funds to build interactive playrooms for children in hospitals throughout North America that would replace the isolation of a hospital with a connection to family, friends and celebrities during each hospital stay. Longtime LaFontaine friend Mark Leff, who serves as lead on the nonprofit organization’s Technology Advisory Board, was recently honored with a citation by the Town of Oyster Bay for his 18 years of service and counting to the foundation and his role in helping forge partnerships between Google, Cisco and Connoisseur Media of Long Island in helping keep this initiative going. Leff’s involvement came out of a meal his and LaFontaine’s family were having out in Montauk back in 2004. “We’re sitting down and having a really nice lunch with the families and the topic of Companions in Courage came up in conversation,” Leff recalled. “I understood the generalities of what he was doing. When he started getting into the specifics, it really fascinated me. It was all about building these playrooms in children’s hospitals that allowed the kids to escape the reality of being in a hospital in these incredible playrooms called Lion’s Dens, the way they were being designed and the technical support being used to do this.” At the time, Leff was a 20-year Cisco employee whose familiarity with high tech enabled CiC to create an initiative called Santa Connection, where patients at children’s hospitals get a personal Santa visit via video conference technology. It’s the kind of event CiC Executive Director Jim Johnson feels is crucial given the kind of duress these children and their families are going through. “In a good year, most of these kids can’t get out to a shopping mall and visit with Santa Claus,” Johnson said. “We’ve been doing this for a number of years and suddenly, it became the hottest ticket in child life because we were providing a desperately needed service for them and their patients. And we were happy to be able to do

raises more money as attendees get to partake in food, drink and a raffle. In working with Corey Roberts of Race Awesome and Bob Cook at the Runners Edge, Leff and his team have raised upwards of $200,000, with the annual take falling between $15,000 to $20,000. Once again, COVID-19 threw a monkey wrench into CiC’s plans with the 2020 Main Street Mile held as a virtual event and last year’s race going live with 270 people taking part and another 30 joining in virtually. In 2022, CiC has been forging ahead with Chromebooks for COVID and the Mane Event, a pair of initiatives being spearheaded by Johnson. “One of the pivots we did was going to work with Google and buy Chrome Books for children’s hospitals, because From left: Main Street Mile Race Director Mark Leff, Alice Leff, Emily Leff, Companions in Courage Executive Director Jim Johnson and Pat LaFontaine they had such a need,” Johnson said. (Photos courtesy of Mark Leff) “There are so many parents that can’t even go in and visit with their children, not to mention siblings and anybody else. The idea of it is to connect the kids to the outside world while they’re stuck in the hospital.” That kind of emotional support also drives the Mane Event, which is a series of short inspirational videos featuring people who have overcome challenges, designed to motivate pediatric patients to get well. Videos drop every Thursday and include a handout Child Life Specialists can use to guide patients through each story and evoke conversations about how the stories relate to their treatments. Video subjects range from Special Olympian Chris Nikic —the first person with Down Syndrome to complete an Jaelynn from Maria Fareri Children’s Hosptial Ironman Triathlon to Aimee Mullins, a double-amputee American athlete, that.

Town Leaders Urge Tax Payment Deadline Extension As Thousands Face Foreclosure Town officials ask state for extension through March 10

W

ith 14,500 Long Islanders behind on mortgages as the State foreclosure moratorium ends on Saturday, Oyster Bay Town Receiver of Taxes Jeffrey Pravato, Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Hempstead Town Receiver of Taxes Jeanine Driscoll urged New York State Governor Kathy Hochul to extend the deadline for the collection of the first half of General taxes from February 10th until March 10th without the imposition of a penalty. Receiver of Taxes Pravato stated, “With the global pandemic still impacting our economy and 14,500 Long Islanders behind on mortgages as the foreclosure moratorium comes to an end tomorrow, we gather to call on Governor Hochul to grant an extension for people to pay their property taxes. Earlier today, we sent a letter to the Governor requesting a deadline extension for payment of the first half of General taxes until March 10th, without imposition of a penalty. This 30 day extension gives families in a crunch the extra time to line up their finances, consult with their attorney and make a decision that’s best for their household.” Supervisor Saladino stated, “We all know how hard it is to afford property taxes on Long Island. Now, just imagine if you’re also struggling to pay

your mortgage, and the increasing price of food and home heating oil. That’s why this extension is so important. The Governor can allow local governments to extend the deadline for property

taxes for 30 days. Why not do it? This 30 day window gives homeowners facing foreclosure an opportunity to get their finances in order and have a little extra time to get their property taxes paid. Let’s face it; those facing foreclosure shouldn’t be forced to come up with additional money for late fees and penalties at a time when they’re catching up on their bills - especially when a 30 day extension costs us nothing. Governor, let’s get it done.” Throughout the pandemic, Receiver Pravato’s office has aggressively advocated for leeway and leniency for our hard hit residents when it comes to paying taxes. Prior to the collection of general and school taxes in 2020 and 2021, Receiver Pravato and Supervisor Saladino lobbied New York State for an extension to the collection date, without the imposition of a penalty. When taxes are due, Receiver Pravato has encouraged residents to make their payments online via eCheck or credit card, where a third-party vendor charges a processing fee, or mail their payments to the Receiver’s Office. Additionally, residents can also pay in person via cash, check, money order or credit/debit card at either office or walkup windows at Town Hall North in Oyster Bay and Town Hall South in Massapequa from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. —Submitted by the Town of Oyster Bay

Glen Cove Thieves Targeting Catalytic Converters Six vehicles throughout Glen Cove had their catalytic converters stolen during the morning of Wednesday, Jan. 12. All the vehicles were either Honda Accords or Honda CRVs. The thieves have been targeting Japanese made vehicles like Hondas, Toyotas and Lexus because those vehicles have higher concentrations of valuable metals such as platinum, palladium and rhodium contained in their converters. These types of thefts have been increasing throughout Nassau County. Vehicle owners may not realize their catalytic converter has been removed until they start their vehicle and hear a much louder than normal exhaust sound. During the thefts in Glen Cove, there were at least three individuals

acting together to steal the converters. They are responsible for the thefts and were operating a small four door sedan. They are either using car jacks or crawling under the vehicle to gain access to the catalytic converter. Once under the vehicle, they are using a battery powered saw to cut the catalytic converters off. Glen Cove residents are encouraged to park their vehicles in a garage or a brightly lit area. Residential surveillance cameras that alert to motion and motion detection lights can also be used to deter these types of thefts. If you observe a suspicious person(s) in your neighborhood, notify the Glen Cove Police at 516-676-1000. —Submitted by the Glen Cove Police Department

he MacArthur wrestling team is in the midst of another stellar season. It should come as no surprise as the Generals are among the top programs in Nassau County. During a recent meet against perennial contender Long Beach, the Generals rallied to secure 32-26 win over the Marines. Sean Napoli’s win at 152 pounds turned the momentum for the Generals and then twins, James (215 pounds) and Matthew (285) Clarkson secured the win. MacArthur’s Napoli was awarded the Jake Kempinski Memorial Scholarship after the match. Long Beach’s Mason Franklin was a co-recipient. The scholarships recognize athletes who demonstrate hard work, dedication and sportsmanship. On Jan. 15, the Generals defeated Seaford, 60-9. The results were: 102 pounds—Thomas Coppola (Mac) pinned Brendan Watson (Sea) 1:38; 110—Matthew Lichter (Mac) dec. Vito Valentino (Sea) 5-4; 118—Jack Godoy (Sea) pinned Jonathan Fox (Mac) 4:08; 126—Mark Napoli (Mac) dec.

he Allstate Foundation recently gifted United Way of Long Island with a $10,000 Helping Hands Grant. The contribution came as a result of a team of Allstate employees initiating a volunteer project with United Way of Long Island’s Stuff-ABus program. The employees who were from multiple Allstate locations, including Lynbrook, Levittown, Farmingdale, Syosset and Melville, combined their volunteer efforts by collecting a wide range of school supplies through an online giving wish list supporting Stuff-A-Bus. Distributed to Long Island school districts, these items are critical to helping young students succeed, especially for children who come from least advantaged families. Allstate Exclusive Agent, Matthew Parmiter commented, “Allstate encourages agents to give back to the communities where we live and work. I’m proud to have coordinated a team of local Allstate agents to help local school children with supplies they need.” The funding received from this grant will be allocated to United Way’s

Long Island Impact Fund, further demonstrating Allstate’s commitment to neighboring families. “Allstate’s contribution both financially and through volunteerism is a powerful way to make a difference,” said Theresa A. Regnante, President and

CEO of United Way of Long Island. She added, “We are grateful for their continued investment in programs that promote education and create positive change in our region.” United Way of Long Island and the Allstate Foundation are working

together to provide innovative and lasting solutions to enhance Long Islanders well-being and prosperity. To learn more or to support the United Way of Long Island, visit www. unitedwayli.org. —Submitted by United Way of Long Island

Massapequa’s Budding Scientists

partnership with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories gave Massapequa High School science students a chance to learn at one of the world’s premier research facilities. Students from the science research program at the high school’s main and Ames campuses recently visited the lab’s Dolan DNA Learning Center for a full-day training session. In addition to speaking with scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Labs, students got to do their own scientific experimentation. They genetically engineered bacteria to acquire resistance to antibiotics; extracted, amplified and separated DNA by agarose electrophoresis; and analyzed genetic information to establish evolutionary relationships between organisms. Ninth graders Madeline Douglas, Edward Pan and Shea Ringel are working on a research project this year in which they are looking to use good bacteria as a safe and environmentally friendly way to reduce iron chloride pollution that can be harmful to animals and plants. They said the trip to Cold Spring Harbor Labs allowed them to become more proficient with science equipment, like Bunsen burners, micropipettes and inoculating

Nassau County Septic System Grants Improving Water Quality

s your septic system or cesspool failing? And even if it’s not, do you want to help improve water quality on Long Island? You might be eligible for a Nassau County grant for up to $20,000 if you replace your conventional septic system or cesspool with a new clean water septic system. In November, Nassau County successfully installed its first ever nitrogen-removing clean water septic system. After Hurricane Ida flooded a Sea Cliff home’s basement and collapsed the cesspool, the homeowner began research on how to upgrade to a clean-water septic system. This resident was able to take advantage of Nassau County and New York State funding and paid significantly less for a clean water septic system compared to a conventional cesspool and septic tank. It was a win-win for the homeowner’s wallet and Nassau’s water quality. Since then, the County has been able to help homeowners install three more systems with many more coming up in the next few months. For decades, the North Shore has been plagued by harmful algal blooms, dense invasive seaweed, fish kills and beach closures. All these ailments are the result of excess nitrogen from untreated wastewater in septic tanks and cesspools. To meet water

(Photo by Katherine Coughlin, North Shore Land Alliance) quality targets, more than 32,000 septic systems on the North Shore of Nassau County need to be upgraded with clean water technology. In addition to reducing nitrogen in our bays and harbors, it is critical that we treat septic wastewater before it contaminates our drinking water. Parts of Nassau County sit directly above a major Special Groundwater Protection Area where freshwater replenishes into a deep-recharge aquifer. Any untreated wastewater that flows into the aquifer will eventually make its way into our drinking water. Clean water septic systems can

remove up to 90 percent of nitrogen from wastewater. Clean water septic systems convert harmful nitrogen in wastewater into a harmless gas by harnessing natural processes. “It is imperative that we upgrade our septic tanks and cesspools now,” said Katherine Coughlin, the North Shore Land Alliance and The Nature Conservancy’s Water Quality Improvement Coordinator. “The longer we wait the longer it will take and the more expensive it will be to fix water quality.” Since last May, Nassau County homeowners and small businesses

owners have been eligible for grants through the Nassau County Soil and Water Conservation District’s S.E.P.T.I.C. Program for up to $20,000 for the installation and, in some cases, design of clean water septic systems. “The grants are a great way to improve the water quality in the Sound and our local bays at little or no cost to homeowners,” commented Bill Bleyer, president of Friends of the Bay, who has been approved for a grant from the project. “We’re hoping more people apply.” The county has funding for 200 available grants, and to date more than 140 applications have been received and 20 clean water septic tanks are on their way to being installed. With support from the North Shore Land Alliance’s Water Quality Improvement Program, the Nassau S.E.P.T.I.C. Program successfully secured an additional $2 million in funding from the American Rescue Plan, bringing the total S.E.P.T.I.C. grant to up to $20,000 per applicant. If you are interested in applying for a clean water septic grant go to www. nassaucountyny.gov/septicreplace or reach out to the North Shore Land Alliance at www.UpgradeYourSeptic. org for free assistance through all steps of the grant application and installation process. —Submitted by Friends of the Bay

After a continuous back and forth between the Village of Garden City and the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) / MTA, the Denton Avenue bridge is finally set to be replaced. The Denton Avenue bridge replacement project is a part of the third track project, which is set to wrap up by the end of this year. The Village of Garden City issued two permits to 3TC with regards to work taking place on the Denton Avenue Bridge—a road closure permit and a utility permit. Mayor Cosmo Veneziale said that a permit for any kind of modification or removal of the bridge has not been issued. The back and forth between the village and the MTA went to the county’s Supreme Court, who forced the Village of Garden City to issue permits. “Here, the completion of the Denton Avenue Bridge Project, the last of eight bridge replacements needed for the $2.6 billion third track project is critical,” Nassau County Supreme Court Justice Helen Voutsinas wrote in the decision dated last November. “Finally, as to a balancing of the equities, the court finds no harm expressed by the village, and in fact,

Library Renovation Budget Amended

T

he budget for renovation of the Children’s Department and adjacent Circulation Desk area in the Garden City Public Library has been amended after officials suggested alternatives and/or additions to enhance user experience even more than originally proposed. Suggestions include adding a sink in the new S.T.E.A.M. (Science Technology Engineering Art Math) Workshop, and connecting the desks in the Circulation area and incorporating granite countertops. According to Trustee Colleen Foley, board liaison to the library, she, along with Village Administrator Ralph Suozzi, Building Superintendent Giuseppe Giovanniello, Library Director Marianne Malagon, Library Board Chairperson Randy Colahan and members of H2M Architects have met for approximately one year developing these concepts.

The grants and low-cost financings approved by the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation’s Board of Directors support 16 municipalities and public authorities that are working to upgrade their drinking water and wastewater systems. “Clean water is one of the most important things for a community, and by providing resources to invest in critical water projects, we can bolster public health and quality of life throughout our state,” Governor Hochul said. “This funding will help local governments make critical upgrades to protect water quality for New Yorkers for generations to come. Through these projects, we can lay the foundation for growth and economic development by providing critical necessities for water.” Of the project funding announced, more than $8 million will be awarded to two Long Island communities to construct systems that treat emerging contaminants in drinking water.

Herricks High School Seniors Named Regeneron Science Talent Scholars

H

erricks High School seniors Caitlin Chheda, Aanya Goel and Roshni Patel have been named in the top 300 scholars in the Regeneron Science Talent Search 2022, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors. The three were selected from more than 1,800 applicants representing 603 high schools nationally and internationally. Scholars were chosen based on research skills, commitment to academics, innovative thinking and their promise as budding scientists. Each scholar and their schools will be awarded $2,000 to support STEM education. By participating in this competition, students have access to a national stage to present their original research which brings a fresh perspective to significant global challenges. This year, research projects covered topics from tracking countries’ progress on Sustainable Development Goals to the impact of states’ individual COVID-19 responses, and improving the tools used to diagnose Alzheimer’s to analyzing the effects of virtual learning on education. Chheda worked under the direction of Dr. Hannah Molla at the University of Chicago. Chheda’s project was The Impact of Sex and MDMA on Social Anxiety Evaluated by Subjective Responses. Dr. Molla had pre-collected data and sought to examine the prosocial effects of MDMA, a psychoactive

Aanya Goel drug, commonly known as ecstasy, E or molly, in social anxiety situations to determine a more effective treatment for the disorder. This study evaluated prosocial effects of MDMA in healthy human volunteers based on sex and subjective responses. At the University of Chicago, healthy human participants responded to questionnaires and were separated into low or high social anxiety groups. All data was previously collected by researchers and then sent to Caitlin for analysis. Goel worked under the direction of Dr. Mark Underwood of the New York State Psychiatric Institute which is affiliated with Columbia University. Goel’s project was Inflammatory Markers Associated with Early Life Adversity in the Postmortem Human Brain. Her research focused on possible root causes of depression by studying

Roshni Patel early life adversity (ELA), a form of childhood stress (i.e., poverty, physical and verbal abuse, maternal separation), as it may be a possible initiator of major depressive disorder (MDD). The study evaluated the possibility of similar inflammatory responses in ELA individuals to determine if ELA may be a risk factor for depression. She evaluated the quinolinic and kynurenic acid levels in the post-mortem human brain tissue via chemical assays. Patel’s worked under the direction of Dr. Anita Barber, assistant professor, The Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research at Northwell Health, Zucker Hillside Hospital Behavioral Health Pavilion. Patel’s project entitled The Connectivity between the Medial Dorsal Nucleus of the Thalamus and the Cingulo-Opercular Network is Related to Psychosis Symptom Severity

Long Island Harmonizers Sing From The Soul Chorus enriches lives through harmony and fellowship BY CHRISTY HINKO

or more than 70 years, the Long Island Harmonizers have been dazzling audiences with their pure toe-tapping acapella harmonies. The Harmonizers are part of the Mid-Island chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society (www.barbershop. org) and are the largest chapter on Long Island, made up of nearly 30 members, ranging in age from 30 years old, to some members who are well into their 90s. “You don’t need to be a Pavarotti to join,” said Robert Miraglia, chorus president of the Long Island Harmonizers. “You just have to enjoy singing and be able to carry a tune.” The four-part cappella harmonies in the barbershop-style is rooted in African-American traditions of the South in the late 1800s. The Barbershop Harmony Society has more than 30,000 members across the United States, with affiliates worldwide. It is even noted that the great entertainer Dick Van Dyke is a member of the organization to this day. “We have a bunch of really good guys; we have a lot of fun and have

The Long Island Harmonizers great camaraderie,” said Miraglia. “We all love to sing and we have a great sound.” The all-male chorus is mostly made up of retired men. “They are from all facets of life,” said Miraglia. “Some are and were teachers, firemen, dentists and even one undertaker.” Miraglia has been a member for more than 20 years. “My mom called me years ago and

said there was a group in another chapter that I should go check out after I retired,” said Miraglia. “I went a couple of times; they were phenomenal and friendly.” Miraglia said many of the guys are 30 to 40-year members. “It is a great hobby for many,” said Miraglia. “Singing helps boost the health and wellness, helps the breathing and the memory, keeps guys sharp.” There are no instruments involved; it is all acapella. “The goal of the society is to bring people together in harmony and fellowship,” said Miraglia. “We enrich people’s lives through music.” They try to vary and grow their repertoire often. “More of the older generation remembers many of the songs that

The Harmonizers delight audiences. we sing,” said Miraglia. “Our song list ranges from the 1920s through the 1970s, mostly.” Miraglia said that some of their most requested numbers are The most requested songs that they sing are Something by George Harrison and The Beatles, In the Still of the Night by The Five Satins and Can You Feel the Love Tonight by Elton John in The Lion King. The Harmonizers have been rehearsing via Zoom, but are hopeful to get back into their regular rehearsal spot at Faith Lutheran Church (231 Jackson Ave., in Syosset). They traditionally rehearse on Tuesdays from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Visit www.longislandharmonizers. org for more information about membership and also upcoming shows.

Westbury Senior Center Weathers Pandemic Change is the silver lining of COVID

BY CHRISTY HINKO

hroughout the past two years of the pandemic, the membership of the Westbury Senior Center have endured irrevocable loss and change, like many of their peers at dozens of senior centers across Long Island. “The pandemic has poised us to grow,” said Paul Ragusa-Schweitzer, executive director for Senior Citizens of Westbury, Inc. “It has forced us to change and modernize; that is the silver lining of the pandemic.” Sadly, the Westbury Senior Center lost approximately 11 of its members throughout the pandemic to virus-related complications. “It’s been almost two years now; I came to the center in September 2020,” said Ragusa-Schweitzer. “At that time, there wasn’t much going on here at the center; we were mostly doing a lot of outreach services.” Ragusa-Schweitzer said that the staff worked out of the center during that time doing a lot of outreach, checking on members, bringing personal protective equipment (PPE), bringing supplies and food to members, running errands for them, helping members to make personal and doctor appointments. “The center still had to run; there are still operational tasks to be done,” said Ragusa-Schweitzer. “We run on a lot of different grants; the work that goes into keeping those grants had to keep going on.” Capitol One Bank provided a small grant to train the center members and instructors how to do virtual programming. “When I came onboard, I felt strongly that two things needed to happen,” said Ragusa-Schweitzer. “The first was to resume providing meals; we quickly started a grab-andgo lunch program to get the seniors out of the house a couple of times a week. The second thing was to get Zoom programs started. A lot of our members, as well as our instructors needs to learn how to do remote programming.” The center did as many outdoor programs as it could, in addition to the online programs. “Change is not something that comes easily,” said Ragusa-Schweitzer. “It was a rude awakening, but it was

Birthdays are always a fun time at the center. time for everyone to come into the 21st century.” Seventy percent of the center members are now using Zoom regularly and have boosted their internet and email skills tremendously. “It was a good thing; we are prepared to be fluid and flexible and deal with the changes as they come.” The center did a soft re-opening in May 2021. “We built back up to capacity throughout the fall,” said RagusaSchweitzer. “Unfortunately, with Omicron numbers on the rise, we had to close to members following our holiday party on Dec. 16, with a plan to re-open again (last week) on Jan. 18.” “Seniors were hit especially hard with this pandemic; many of them are isolated to begin with,” said RagusaSchweitzer. “They come there because it’s the highlight of their social calendar. They come here to see their friends, they are taking classes and doing workshops; they are getting a nutritious meal.” Club members love to play in-person games likes mahjong, canasta and bridge. “Especially for people to don’t have family and friends nearby this is really the place that they come to bond and gather with people,” said Ragusa-Schweitzer. “It’s a difficult position to be in, making the decision about when we are open and when we are closing. I’ve taken a little bit of the flack, but ultimately it’s about their welfare. Visit www.westburyseniorcenter. org to learn more about the Senior Citizens of Westbury, Inc.

Guidance Against Government Grant Scams

E

arlier this week the New York State Office for the Aging office was notified by a local level office for the aging agency that they have been getting a large number of NY Connects calls from older adults who had received a postcard mailing addressed to “resident” from the National Residential Improvement Association (NRIA) offering to help them get a grant to repair their home. The postcard looks official, but it is not a government program and the company currently does not have a valid business license. NRIA has been reported to the Better Business Bureau multiple times since 2008. This is a scam. Government grant scams are on the rise. With the recently passed federal stimulus bill, scammers are taking advantage of homeowners of all ages by making bogus offers to secure generous grants for home repairs.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR:

• Unsolicited phone calls or emails

over the telephone, like your Medicare number, Social Security number or banking information. • Never pay a fee to a company that says it will help you get a grant. • Block or unfriend anyone who offers unsolicited grant information on social media. Even if you are “friends” with that person—they may have been hacked. • Only use local contractors with validated references to do work in your home. from someone claiming to be an official from the Federal Grants Administration (which does not exist), or a nonprofit organization like the National Residential Improvement Association offering grants or funding for repairs. • Social media messages or posts from people excited to share the thousands of dollars they claim to have received from an organization that secures grants for homeowners. • Callers who ask you to pay a fee in order to receive a grant. Federal

grants never charge for grant applications. • Magazine or newspaper ads that offer “free grants.” • Calls or emails that claim you’re eligible for a personal grant that does not restrict how you spend the money.

PROTECT YOURSELF:

• Do not answer your telephone if you do not recognize the caller or number. • Never share personal information

IF YOU HAVE BEEN A VICTIM OF SUCH A SCAM:

• Report it to the New York State Attorney General’s office: 800-771-7755 • Report to the AARP Fraud Watch Network: 877-908-3360 • Report the scammer to the Better Business Bureau: www.bbb.org/consumercomplaints/file-a-complaint/ get-started —New York State Office for the Aging

n Jan. 11, Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker stopped by Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center (SJJCC) in Greenvale to deliver 50 COVID-19 tests to the senior center. The tests were distributed to the SJJCC’s Fay J. Lindner Foundation Senior Services Center—Adult Day Program participants, individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s or another degenerative illness. In addition to the program participants, COVID tests were given to the family member or caregiver who transports the program member to SJJCC each day. The remainder of the tests will be distributed amongst SJJCC’s senior population whom Drucker met with virtually on Monday, Jan. 10 during SJJCC’s News Behind the News program to discuss his donation of COVID tests, his tax grievance workshops and to answer any questions. —Submitted by Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center

Reverse Mortgages: Know The Facts Reverse mortgages have become an increasingly popular option for seniors who need to supplement their retirement income, pay for unexpected medical expenses, or make needed repairs to their homes. Before entering into a reverse mortgage, however, it is important that you understand what a reverse mortgage is, understand the types of reverse mortgages that are available, know the costs and fees associated with reverse mortgages and understand the repayment obligations for these mortgages.

WHAT IS A REVERSE MORTGAGE? A reverse mortgage is a special type of home equity loan sold to homeowners aged 62 and older. The loan allows homeowners to access a portion of their home equity as cash. In a reverse mortgage, interest is added to the loan balance each month, and the balance grows. The loan must be repaid when the last borrower, co-borrower or eligible spouse sells the home, moves out of the home or dies. Most reverse mortgages today are called Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECMs). HECMs are federally insured. If you are interested in a reverse mortgage, first see a HECM counselor.

HOW DO I QUALIFY FOR A REVERSE MORTGAGE? In order to qualify for most reverse mortgages: You and any other borrowers on the reverse mortgage must be at least 62 years of age. The home securing the reverse mortgage must be your primary residence. Eligible property types include single-family homes, two-to-four-unit owner-occupied properties, manufactured homes, condominiums and townhouses. You must either pay off the old mortgage debt before you get a reverse mortgage or pay off the old mortgage debt with the money you get from a reverse mortgage. There are no minimum asset, income or credit requirements to qualify for most reverse mortgages.

As with all mortgages, there are costs and fees connected to securing a reverse mortgage. Fees include those associated with loan origination, mortgage insurance premiums, closing costs and monthly servicing fees. These fees are often higher than the fees associated with traditional

mortgages and home equity loans. Make sure you understand all the costs and fees associated with the reverse mortgage. Be aware that if you choose to finance the costs associated with a reverse mortgage, they will increase your loan balance and accrue interest during the life of the loan.

WILL I HAVE TO REPAY THE REVERSE MORTGAGE? You generally do not have to repay the reverse mortgage as long as you and any other borrowers continue to live in the home, pay property taxes, maintain homeowners insurance and keep the property in good repair. Your reverse mortgage lender may include other conditions that will make your reverse mortgage payable, so you should read the loan documents carefully to make certain you understand all the conditions that can cause your loan to become due.

HOW MUCH WILL I OWE WHEN MY REVERSE MORTGAGE BECOMES DUE? The amount you will owe on your reverse mortgage will equal all the loan advances you received (including advances used to finance the loan or to pay off prior debt), plus all the interest that accrued on your loan balance. If this amount is less than your home is worth when you pay back the loan, then you (or your estate) keep whatever amount is left over. With most reverse mortgages, you can never owe more than your home is worth. The technical term for this cap on your debt is a “non-recourse limit.” It means that the lender, when seeking repayment of your loan, generally does not have legal recourse to anything other than your home’s value and cannot seek repayment from your heirs. Be aware that since the home will likely need to be sold to pay back the reverse mortgage, these types

Capping The Chapel At Our Lady Of Peace T

he management and Board of Directors of Catholic Cemeteries of Long Island marked the next phase of construction for Queen of Peace Cemetery in Old Westbury with the lifting and installation of two new metal steeples to crown the cemetery chapel last month. The chapel, constructed from Indiana limestone, is the centerpiece of the grounds and when the chapel opens in 2022, it will be welcoming congregations of up to approximately 200 people to Masses. Catholic Cemeteries of Long Island owns and operates four cemeteries across Long Island, and Queen of Peace is the first new Long Island cemetery in 75 years and one of the only cemeteries in the entire United States that is currently being built. This new 97-acre property was purchased in 1993 for the purpose of developing the fourth cemetery for Catholics on Long Island. “The construction of Queen of Peace is a historic and monumental undertaking and will serve the faithful of Nassau County and the Diocese of Rockville Centre well over next hundred years. We look forward to welcoming visitors and parishioners from across the Diocese when Queen of Peace

opens,” said Richard Bie, president and CEO of Catholic Cemeteries of Long Island. Adorning the interior of the chapel will be numerous reclaimed religious fixtures from across the tristate area, including a chapel altar set from The Guardian Angel Chapel in Brooklyn, and stained-glass windows from the Sisters of Christian Charity in New Jersey. “Our mission of serving Catholic families across Long Island is being bolstered today as we move ever closer to the opening of our newest hallowed resting ground for the faithful. Those who visit this inspiring chapel and sacred grounds will be moved by the thought and care that have gone into every aspect of this project,” said Catholic Cemeteries of Long Island Board Chairman Richard Sullivan. Construction will continue through the first of 2022 and includes the construction of the chapel, garden mausoleums, administration facility and maintenance buildings. For more information visit www. CCLongIsland.org. —Submitted by Catholic Cemeteries of Long Island

Steeples for the chapel at Queen of Peace Cemetery in Old Westbury were delivered and installed last month.

Westbury Celebrates Black History Month Westbury Arts presents its Fifth Anniversary Weekend Jubilee in Celebration of Black History MonthAfrican American Culture: “Connecting the Community Through the Arts,” offering live and video performances in storytelling, dance, song, poetry, visual artistic expression, and cultural reflection exploring trauma, history, and achievements through art. The opening reception is Friday, Feb. 4, from 7 to 9 p.m., at 255 Schenck Ave., Westbury. The exhibit showcases provocative visual works by Dr. Nichelle Rivers of NiRi Art, along with other local African American artists interpreting the theme “Creative Visions of Community and Cultural Reflections: Connecting the Community Through the Arts,” depicting a wide variety of artistic expression accentuating art to document, educate and store cultural history. The artists will discuss their works in a panel interview. Alicia Evans, educator, storyteller, and artist specializing in fiber art, is mistress of ceremonies and will deliver a tribute to the late Joysetta Pearse, former director of the recently re-named Joysetta and Julius Pearse African American Museum of Nassau County. Evans will share first-hand stories about Pearse, her philosophies and her love of sharing “hidden history.”

The program features spoken word performances, as well as The Harlem Swing Dance Society, the premiere organization preserving and propagating Harlem’s rich Lindy Hop and Swing Dance culture. Other performing artists include Danse Xpressions, and Uniondale Show Choir, who have been featured on the Today Show. Artist and performer Alicia Evans is mistress of ceremonies. There will be a post-performance reception with refreshments and a display of African “Straight Brooklyn,” acrylic on canvas by Nichelle Rivers, will be exhibited at Westbury Arts.

Deirdre Amukowa, an emerging poet, will perform a tribute poetry reading.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

THANK YOU AND FAREWELL...FOR NOW My name is Chris Ruggiero, and I am the general manager of Zim Zari California Coastal Grill. We are located at 4964 Merrick Rd. in Massapequa Park, in the Southgate Shopping Center. We have been here since Jan. 2009. I regret to inform our loyal customers from the last 13 years, that we closed our doors after business hours on Sunday,

Jan. 16. I would like to send a heartfelt thank you to our patrons that have supported us during our time here. We will be re-launching under a different name, but with a similar concept. Sometime in mid-February, after the renovations are finished, we will be doing business as Vida. As I have explained to both previous and current employees, it was never

about the name on the building. It was about the people. The relationships and bonds that have been formed throughout the years with both the customers and our employees is something that cannot be duplicated. Whether it about someone coming in on a first date, a birthday or simply a cold margarita on a Taco Tuesday, we thank you all for choosing

us. We look forward to seeing some old faces, as well as new. And hope to continue those relationships with the great people of Massapequa, Massapequa Park and the surrounding neighborhoods. In closing, thank you again, to you all that have chosen us. If it was not for the people, we would not have been Zim Zari. —Chris Ruggiero

COLUMN

Negotiating The Grandchild It’s one of the oldest scams in the book. A predator calls an older adult pretending to be their grandchild. They’ve been arrested and need money immediately or they are going to jail. The grandparent gets so confused and concerned; they will do anything, including forking over thousands of dollars. Many of us see news reports about the scam and wonder how anyone could fall for this. I’ve had this discussion with my soon-to-be 90-year-old mother many times and she assured me that she would never fall for it. Until she almost did. She called me the other day and wanted to come over to talk. “I got a call from Phillip (not his real name),” she said. “He’s in jail and needs money to get bailed out.” “Ma,” I said, “How many times have we discussed this? It’s not Phillip. It’s a scam.” I assured her none of her grandchildren would ever call her first, especially if they only had one phone call. “I know it’s a scam, but it sounded just like him,” she said. “Did he ask you to send him money,” I asked? “No, he wanted me to talk to his lawyer, who would have all the details.” His lawyer? “Another person called you, claiming to be his lawyer?” I asked. “Of course not,” she said. “I called him.” Okay, that’s it. I needed to hear this story from the

beginning. “Phillip called me from the hospital,” she said. “He had been drinking and was in a car accident that killed someone. He told me his sinuses were damaged, and that might be why he doesn’t sound like himself.” Of course not. “He couldn’t talk right now but would call me back

after he came out of surgery,” she said. “But when he called me back, he was frightened and said to not call anyone about this, especially his father. I asked him how much money he needed, but he didn’t know. So, he told me to call his lawyer, Max Morgan, and gave me his number.” How convenient. “Mr. Morgan told me to send him $8,000 for bail or Phillip was going to go to jail for 90 days,” she said. “I told him I didn’t have that much cash in the house. He said I could send him a bank transfer or buy $8,000 worth of Amazon gift cards if I wanted. I don’t even know how to get an Amazon gift card.” After all, most reputable bail bond agents accept Amazon gift cards. “What did he say when you

told him you didn’t have the money?” I asked. “He told me to call him back when I had the money,” she said, “And he gave me Phillip’s case number: 1754938B.” Well, isn’t that nice of him? I took down all the information and called the Seventh Precinct in Nassau County. Although sympathetic, they don’t take on scam cases unless the mark (my mother) forks over the money. The “Monk” in me wanted to call Max Morgan back and see where that would take me. Instead, I just opened a case online with the FBI (usa. gov). They even gave me a case number: 135496554. I’m sure they will solve the case. When my wife told her 94-year-old mother the story, she was surprised that my mother would fall for the scam. “Doesn’t she know to just hang up immediately when that happens?” she said. Ah, the wisdom of the aged. Then a few days later, my mother-in-law got a call from her grandson, who, coincidentally, was in the hospital after a bad car accident that killed someone. Instead of just hanging up, she had a long conversation with her grandson (who refused to give her his name) about what happened and what needed to be done. That is until she told him she didn’t have any money and didn’t even have a car. Then he hung up. —Paul DiSclafani’s new book, A View From The Bench, is a collection of his favorite Long Island Living columns. It’s available wherever books are sold.

The Frustration Of The Dreaded Computer Update My computer updated again. I couldn’t use it for the better part of six hours, so I frustratedly allowed it to perform the updates overnight. Sometimes, updates are a wonderful thing. They help you to find files faster or they help you to connect and link other data so it is easier to find. Other times, updates can throw you so far off your game that you end up waiting for hours. Our first computer, which was hubby’s work laptop, had the most primitive graphics and often crashed and burned while in the middle of a project. He sometimes used the computer for leisurely activities, like Digger and Frogger. Many times, I hogged the computer in order to finish a game and increase my score. It was decided that we would get a new computer for the household so that I could “make budgets and write Christmas card lists.” Updates were always performed by the IT department, so we thankfully never had to concern ourselves with the task. The first computer we purchased for personal use was an Emachines special. The monitor looked like a small television set and was so wobbly that if touched, it could cause one to suffer from motion sickness until it stopped its bobbling motion. The base unit sat beneath the monitor, although a newer model that we traded when the original

SEE YOU AROUND THE TOWN Patty Servidio

was recalled stood beside the screen. It always seemed to be too hot to the touch. Miles of wires connected the printer, scanner and telephone. Our old basement desk looked a lot like the circulatory system of an alligator. It always required updating, which was frustrating because the computer was slower than a cephalopod all the time. On a rerun episode of Young Sheldon, the protagonist’s mother purchases a computer for the boy genius. That old computer looked a lot like our first model. After the Emachines succumbed to what is known in the computer world as “the blue screen of death,” we purchased laptops. They were easier to use, required less storage space and were portable. These laptops worked rather well in the beginning, but as time went on and the internal hard drive became

crowded with files, they became sluggish and clunky, even with regular updates. My last computer also went the way of the blue screen, after several months of an inability to turn the screen on. I worked with my neighbor, a computer repair technician, who advised me to get another and download as much information onto an external hard drive before it was too late. I waited too long, and for a moment, I thought everything I had saved over the years had been lost. Thankfully, someone from Microsoft assisted me in the retrieval of my old files. I was able to update the system to a newer version of Microsoft Windows and retained the old files in a folder named “old computer stuff”. It was the one and only time I was grateful for an update, although it took the better part of a full day to complete. Hubby and I purchased a Dell about a year ago from the Levittown Best Buy. I like the laptop very much, but it often updates unbeknownst to us and I find the screen to be either unrecognizable or find that newer functions are difficult to learn. Something has been said about old dogs and new tricks. I honestly think my Luna could learn to roll over faster than I can learn some of these new updates. Our daughter, who moved out over a year ago, left several

of her older laptops on the floor of her bedroom. One of them was infected with a virus that made it impossible to get to the home screen. That laptop became some wonderful therapy along with a sledgehammer, especially since nothing current was saved on it. We had obtained it for middle school projects long past. The other computer was finally rescued from beside her bed. It had not been used since she worked for a different school district at the beginning of the pandemic. She told me that it still works, though her current district supplied her with a newer model. She also does most of her screen work on her cell phone anyway, so the electronic device has become a bit of a dust collector in her apartment. Hubby told her to update the computer, but I doubt that she has taken the time to do so. Especially if her phone downloads data faster. There’s a hilarious meme

out there regarding computer updates. It is a photo of Liam Neeson with a phone to his ear as seen in the film, Taken. The meme sends out a veiled threat: “I will find you and I will update your PC”. There is another of a man who is “waiting for computer to update.” In the split screen below is a picture of a skeleton. It captions the perfect frustration behind computers in need of updating and the length of time required to wait for the update to finish. I’ve noticed that the blue screen Microsoft offers with the words, “Working on updates. Do not turn off your PC–this could take a while”. Truer words were never spoken. —Patty Servidio is an Anton Media Group columnist.

Believing When You’re Not Seeing We all know how easy it is to believe when things are going our way when we get a good break, our health is improving or our children are doing well. However, when you can see it, it doesn’t take much faith. The real test is when you can’t see any sign of what you’re believing for. You’re working very hard, but doors aren’t opening. You’re constantly praying, but the medical report isn’t improving, no one is hiring you. You know you’re doing the right thing, but your marriage isn’t getting better. If you were only able to see some improvement, if

RABBI MOSHE WEISBLUM you just felt a little better, at least you would know that it is helping, but often before you see change, you have to go through a difficult time where you’re not seeing

anything changing. If your faith is strong, then at some point you will see what the Almighty was doing behind the scenes and suddenly things are going to shift in your favor. The Almighty was using the obstacle to change you. You were actually growing, getting stronger, developing faith and trust, patience and character. If He would have removed it sooner, you wouldn’t be prepared for where He’s taking you and the blessings He wants to give you. Our attitude should be: The Almighty is good and only wants good for His creations. You have to have faith and trust the process, while you’re waiting things are developing.

The Almighty is bringing it together even though you may not see any improvement. You may not see a sign, but that is precisely when you have to dig down deep and say, “I am not going to let what I’m not seeing convince me that it’s too late or that the obstacles are too big. I am going to keep thanking the Almighty even though it’s not improving, keep expecting even though the reality seems impossible”. Instead of considering how big your stumbling blocks are, start considering how big the Almighty is? He is omnipotent. Our Heavenly father and creator. What you’re up against may seem impossible, but the Almighty can do the

impossible, he can make things happen that we could never do. Many times our promise is taking longer to develop because we’re complaining instead of praising. You must keep an atmosphere of faith, of praise and thanksgiving. Always think of the many blessings the Almighty has already bestowed upon you. So don’t walk away from the nest or get weary in well-doing. Keep believing even though you’re not seeing. If you do this then what you thought was dead, impossible, or couldn’t happen will suddenly come back to life: healing, job opportunities, promotions, relationships, breakthroughs and the fullness of your life.

extraordinary people.” Edmonston, of Oyster Bay’s Mount Olive Baptist Church, has dedicated his time and efforts to providing spiritual guidance, leadership and mentorship to the community. As a civic-minded member of the clergy, Edmonston exemplifies what it means to be a positive role model for future generations to follow. “The foundation for a healthy community is dependent upon the leadership of people like Reverend Kent Edmonston,” Councilwoman Michele Johnson added. “This prestigious recognition reflects upon the incredible leadership and courage of Martin Luther King Jr., and also on the local contributions being made every day in our community by extraordinary people like Reverend Edmonston.” —Submitted by the Town of Oyster Bay

Hardwick In Manhattan

BY JOSEPH SCOTCHIE

jscotchie@antonmediagroup.com

T

he following is a book review about the book A Splendid Intelligence: The Life of Elizabeth Hardwick by Cathy Curtis. The art critic Harold Rosenberg once praised his fellow New York intellectuals as representing a “herd of independent minds.” Was it so? Didn’t such thinkers have to toe the party line—or be outcast? If there was an independent mind from this long-lost crowd, it would be Elizabeth Hardwick. Novelist, short story writer, essayists and teacher, Hardwick is now the subject of a biography by Cathleen Curtis, one that highlights that classic tale of small town girl taking on the big, bad city. Hardwick grew up in Lexington, KY, the eighth of a family of 11 children born to Eugene and Mary Hardwick. Coming from a large family teaches independence early on—a young person knows that he or she isn’t going to be spoiled. A graduate of the University of Kentucky, he pursued postgraduate studies at Louisiana State University, then home to Southern Review, the top-notch literate quarterly edited by Cleanth Brooks and Robert Penn Warren. LSU’s finances soon would be rocked by an embezzlement scandal. Southern Review itself went out of business. Undaunted, Hardwick traveled north. In 1939, she took a Greyhound bus from Lexington to New York City. What followed was 60 years of incisive literary criticism. Parochial New Yorkers were wary of anyone with an accent. Hardwick simply outworked any doubters. In time, Susan Sontag would hail her for writing “more beautiful sentences than any living American writer.” Central to Hardwick’s personal life was her marriage to the poet, Robert Lowell. Scion of a legendary Boston dynasty, Lowell, along with fellow

New Englander Robert Frost, was the finest natural poet America has ever produced. Lowell also suffered from a bi-polar condition, which led to frequent bouts of violent temper. In time, his wife learned to accept the inevitable divorce, but she never stopped praising his genius. Lowell, for his part, must have regretted parting with the best thing he would ever find. Flying in from London, where he lived with his third wife, to New York, Lowell, in September 1977, suffered a heart seizure. He instructed the cabbie to drive him to Hardwick’s apartment on West 67th Street, where he died in the company of the woman who loved him most. Central to Hardwick’s literary career was the co-founding (along with Lowell and others) of The New York Review of Books (NYRB). In the early 1960s, a newspaper strike crippled most of the city’s dailies, including The New York Times and The New York Herald-Tribune. Frantic book publishers

lost valuable advertising spaces. The NYRB was founded to fill that gap. For decades, Hardwick’s lyrical prose filled its own void, delivering a balming effect on the publication’s leftist politics. Hardwick remained focused on the text and how it administers to the human spirit. What does a novel, short story or poem have to say? And how does it say it? Hardwick was a fearless critic. “Militant Nudes,” a 1971 essay, demonstrated her ability to run free of the pack. As Curtis writes: [She] discussed the way sexuality “is suddenly political.” Ranging over content as diverse as Gimme Shelter…a film about Huey Newton; a novel by Marge Piercy; and Andy Warhol’s film Trash, she decried the “pitiless and pathological” that “has seeped into youth’s love of itself, its body, its politics.” She was repelled by ‘the moral numbness of these works, “the loss of pity for the poor body, of respect of its

life, its suffering.’” The successor to Mary McCarthy as the dean of American critics, Hardwick championed the former, plus such contemporaries as Marianne Moore, Elizabeth Bishop, Susan Sontag and Hannah Arendt. Reaching into past epochs, she admired George Eliot, George Sand, Herman Melville, Thomas Mann, William James and William Faulkner. Hardwick was also receptive to new trends in American fiction, praising the “ironic spirit” in the postmodernist work of Donald Barthelme, Kurt Vonnegut, Guy Davenport and Renata Adler. Not surprisingly, Hardwick was a great teacher. For decades, she taught at Barnard College, guiding such future stars as Mary Gordon, Mona Simpson, Susan Minot, Anna Quindlen and Daphne Merkin. Hardwick could be a harsh teacher, but inspirational, also. She knew the stakes of a creative writing course: Write well, write long and above all, publish. There was no room for foolishness in her classroom. In the late 1970s, Hardwick finally came out of her late husband’s shadow with the well-received novel, Sleepless Nights. Volumes of criticism followed. In 2000, Hardwick, at age 84, capped off her amazing career with a short biography of Herman Melville. Criticism or fiction, a pristine prose that challenged the reader’s own intelligence, defined her career. “A page of great prose is invincible,” a dying John Cheever once remarked. Elizabeth Hardwick’s own prose will enlighten readers for generations to come. What did you think of this article? Share your thoughts with me by email at: jscotchie @antonmediagroup.com

Such tax liens will be sold at the lowest rate of interest, not exceeding 10 percent per sixmonth period, for which any person or persons shall offer to take the total amount of such unpaid taxes as defined in Section 5-37.0 of the Nassau County Administrative Code.

Dated: January 12, 2022 THE NASSAU COUNTY TREASURER Mineola, NewYork TERMS OF SALE Such tax liens shall be sold subject to any and all superior tax liens of sovereignties and other municipalities and to all claims of record which the County may have thereon and subject to the provisions of the Federal and State Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Acts. However, such tax liens shall have priority over the County’s Differential Interest Lien, representing the excess, if any, of the interest and penalty borne at the maximum rate over the interest and penalty borne at the rate at which the lien is purchased. The Purchaser acknowledges that the tax lien(s) sold pursuant to these Terms of Sale may be subject to pending bankruptcy proceedings and/ or may become subject to such proceedings which may be commenced during the period in which a tax lien is held by a successful bidder or the assignee of same, which may modify a Purchaser’s rights with respect to the lien(s) and the property securing same. Such bankruptcy proceedings shall not affect the validity of the tax lien. In addition to being subject to pending bankruptcy proceedings and/or the Federal and State Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Acts, said purchaser’s right of foreclosure may be affected by the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act(FIRREA),12 U.S.C. ss 1811 et.seq., with regard to real property under Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation(FDIC) receivership. The County Treasurer reserves the right, without further notice and at any time, to withdraw from sale any of the parcels of land or premises herein listed. The Nassau County Treasurer reserves the right to intervene in any bankruptcy case/litigation where the property affected by the tax liens sold by the Treasurer is part of the bankruptcy estate. How-

LEGAL NOTICES ever, it is the sole responsibility of all tax lien purchasers to protect their legal interests in any bankruptcy case affecting their purchased tax lien, including but not limited to the filing of a proof of claim on their behalf, covering their investment in said tax lien. The Nassau County Treasurer and Nassau County and its agencies, assumes no responsibility for any legal representation of any tax lien purchaser in any legal proceeding including but not limited to a bankruptcy case where the purchased tax lien is at risk. The rate of interest and penalty at which any person purchases the tax lien shall be established by his bid. Each purchaser, immediately after the sale thereof, shall pay to the County Treasurer ten per cent of the amount for which the tax liens have been sold and the remaining ninety per cent within thirty days after such sale. If the purchaser at the tax sale shall fail to pay the remaining ninety per cent within ten days after he has been notified by the County Treasurer that the certificates of sale are ready for delivery, then all amounts deposited with the County Treasurer including but not limited to the ten per cent theretofore paid by him shall, without further notice or demand, be irrevocably forfeited by the purchaser and shall be retained by the County Treasurer as liquidated damages and the agreement to purchase shall be of no further effect. Time is of the essence in this sale. This sale is held pursuant to the Nassau County Administrative Code and interested parties are referred to such Code for additional information as to terms of the sale, rights of purchasers, maximum rates of interest and other legal incidents of the sale. Furthermore, as to the bidding, 1. The bidder(s) agree that they will not work with any other bidder(s) to increase, maintain or stabilize interest rates or collaborate with any other bidder(s) to gain an unfair competitive advantage in the random number generator in the event of a tie bid(s) on a tax certificate. Bidder(s) further agree not to employ any bidding strategy designed to create an unfair competitive advantage in the tiebreaking process in the upcoming tax sale nor work with any other bidder(s) to engage in any bidding strategy that will result in a rotational award of tax certificates. 2.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s exciting to be with someone who is thrilled to be with you. Why did you ever settle for less than total enthusiasm? Maybe it just took you this long to get back to the enviable position of loving your own company. When you love your own company, settling for lukewarm attention is something you never have to do. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can train yourself away from worry. Unlike some kinds of learning, this training will be impervious to technological, economic and social trends. It will serve you all of your days. Take the first steps. Practice focusing on what you’re grateful for and turning your mind ever-back to hope and beauty.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Communication is an exchange, not necessarily an agreement. It is in the circumstance of disagreement that respectful, thorough communication is most necessary. This week, those who are cool and conscientious in disagreeable situations will be richly rewarded. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Different situations require a different side of your personality. This week, you’ll be developing your many facets as you deal with both beginners and the experienced as well as dogs, children, government officials, attendants and employers. Switching modes often, you grow in strength and flexibility.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t always have to face your fear. Often that’s just too scary. Try dancing with it instead. Turn it this way and that, seeking moves you can warm into. The point is, you’re making efforts. With persistence and a willingness to experiment, you’ll eventually get to the breakthrough. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There’s no need to rush the getting-to-know-you process. Take it slow; make it last; enjoy the minutiae. Everything relevant will eventually be revealed. The hope is to learn someone over a period of time, ideally long enough to find out how they deal with defeat and, more importantly, how they handle success. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The value of laughter cannot be overstated. You have humor in your life because you’re open to seeing what’s funny. Sometimes you’re the funny one and sometimes you get to be charmed by the lighthearted, unique minds you attract. This week hands you prime comedy cuts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The basics, such as good nutrition and sound sleep, will be main contributors to the plot. The transformation you want cannot happen instantaneously. But by changing what you do, you will see a difference over time. Your best teacher is the task itself. Every repetition is a new lesson. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Fear can prompt people to ask more questions than are necessary. You don’t have to know how everything works to proceed. Comfort doesn’t come from having the answers but from getting in there and doing the thing. You’re courageous enough. Dive in and get the experience. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You wish a certain person would treat you a particular way. You think receiving this treatment will make you happy, so try out the theory. Give yourself the special treatment. Go to the expense; take the time; deliver with gusto. Get love and appreciation flowing through your world; it paves the way for more. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You see a need. An ugly place that could be beautiful; the friendless who could use a friend; the voiceless deserving of an advocate. You fill in blanks, step into roles, dream up solutions; you act. What happens because of you would not have happened unless you had the courage to show up.

THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS

There’s high entertainment factor at the start of this solar return, and at times you feel like you’re starring in a movie. Just when you think you’re gaining ground, something sends you back to the beginning. The plot twist is tremendously lucky. You’ll succeed quickly the second time around. Love surprises and imprints on you. You’ll be willing to do different things than you’ve tried in the name of relationship building. A spring windfall and a beneficial partnership will fund your wish. COPYRIGHT 2022 CREATORS.COM

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Even in those moments when your mind races faster than a lightning speed download, you are not the least bit overwhelmed. It’s friction that causes stress. When you are well-aligned and without conflict, you can move quickly and with great clarity down the path of least resistance.

BOOKER T. JONES’ FAVE PLAYERS

BY DAVE GIL DE RUBIO

T

his year marks the 60th anniversary of the release of the Booker T. & the MGs 1962 instrumental “Green Onions,” a soul classic that not only topped off at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, but became emblematic of the rich Stax/Volt sound coming out of Memphis that would rival Motown’s output up through the early ‘70s. Along with guitarist Steve Cropper, drummer Al Jackson Jr. and bass player Lewie Steinberg (who was eventually replaced by Donald “Duck” Dunn), group namesake Booker T. Jones was part of the house band for the storied label while carving out an impressive legacy for the group itself while becoming one of the first racially integrated rock groups. Unhappy with Stax’s new leadership, Jones moved to California and left both the group and label in 1971, only to enjoy one of the great career second acts. It’s a journey captured in Time is Tight: My Life, Note by Note, a memoir Jones penned and simultaneously released with Note By Note, his most recent studio album. With the seeds planted for this autobiography back in 2007, the Tennessee native took his time pulling his story together. “I wrote the book on American Airlines napkins, Holiday Inn notepads and even in a notebook at my son’s soccer games and it took me about 10 to 12 years to get it done,” he explained. In his memoir, Jones shares the triumphs he’s had within and outside of the MGs thanks to deep musical skills that led to this former child prodigy collaborating with a broad range of artists including Willie Nelson, Rosanne Cash, Neil Young, Bill Withers and Taylor Dayne. At the same time, the septuagenarian Rock & Roll Hall of Famer didn’t shy away from the tragic losses of close friends and loved ones (Otis Redding, ex-wife Priscilla Coolidge, Jackson Jr.) that he experienced and proved to be one of the greater challenges with this project. “I remember being in either

Cleveland or Cincinnati at the airport and Al Jackson getting a call from his wife that Otis had crashed with six of our other people on that plane,” he recalled. “When you’re 23, you’re too young to handle that and don’t know what to do. Going back to remember makes it happen twice.” Fast forward to the present and like so many other artists in the music industry, Jones wound up having his touring plans derailed when the pandemic locked down the entire touring circuit. While he kept busy revamping his home studio (“Since I had to cancel so many gigs, I worked on optimizing my work space”) and launching the Book Records

imprint with National frontman Matt Berninger, which served as the springboard for the latter’s solo debut Serpentine Prison, Jones is itching to get back on the road. In the meantime, he shared some of his favorite players with Long Island Weekly. George Shearing (August 13, 1919 to February 14, 2011) “[He’s a favorite because he] couldn’t see and he came up with a new melodic concept of playing the melody in octaves and filling in the harmony notes in-between. I do it on a version of ‘Stardust’ that I haven’t

Booker T. Jones is arguably the most commercially successful Hammond B-3 organist. The following is a list of some other notable players. Jimmy Smith Joey DeFrancesco Dr. Lonnie Smith Jimmy McGriff Richard “Groove” Holmes Ethel Smith Jon Lord Shirley Scott Billy Preston Brother Jack McDuff –Dave Gil de Rubio recorded yet. It’s just an amazing concept.” Ray Charles (September 23, 1930 to June 10, 2004) “I loved Ray Charles on electric piano and saxophone. He influenced Hank Crawford. The way he played his grace notes by putting two fingers close together—it’s like he’s trying to get in-between two keys. Who did that before Ray Charles? I don’t know. That was the one thing that made me think I would have no complaints in life if I could go and play that instrument and that’s what has happened to me.” Visit www.bookert.com to find out more about Booker T. Jones and www.longislandweekly.com for a longer version of this story.
