Manhasset Making Memories BY FRANK RIZZO


t was a magical afternoon in Mary Jane Davies Park. Literally. For close to an hour, magician George of Georgie Porgie Magic had normally restless children enthralled as he conjured birds out of thin air (and then “turned” one bird into two), poured water into a folded newspaper and unfolded a totally dry one, and filled a cup with water only to pour salt out of the same cup. It also helped that he called kids up to assist him and ended with a dance contest and picked what seemed to be the popular choice. The magic show was sponsored by Enchanted Parties, one of a number of businesses, along with Shop Manhasset, that supported host Manhasset Chamber of Commerce in its inaugural Trick-or-Treat Halloween on Plandome Road. “Everyone enjoyed the event,” Chamber member Antoniette Manzi, one of the main organizers, said. “It superseded our expectations. Kids enjoyed the magic show and they got to make slime and see a tarantula brought by Science Museum of Long Island. It’s so nice to see the community come together. Kids had a great time trick or treating on Plandome Road, the biggest highlight was all the candy from Fred Astaire Dance Studio and Kelly’s Kitchens, they had a sink and drawers full of candy. In the meantime businesses were busy all day with residents grabbing coffee or a bite to eat.” Manzi added that the Chamber gave out Halloween Totes to the first 150 kids, stating, “They were prefilled with goodies from some of our generous local businesses: Asthletes, The Little Gym, ByTina Design Personalizations, Solemate Cakes, Mosquito Hunters, People’s Bank, Razzle Dazzle Car Wash, Shelter Rock Church, Coquette, Mayweather Boxing & Fitness, Pro Soccer Kids, Mosquito Hunters of Nassau, Traci Conway Clinton from Compass NY and more.” Event sponsors were Stretch Zone Manhasset, Lynx Mortgage Bank LLC, Douglas Elliman Real Estate Manhasset, Manhasset PAL Baseball and Compass NY. Supporting sponsors are For Five Coffee Manhasset, Mothers Group of Manhasset, People’s United Bank, Manhasset CASA, ProMet Physical Therapy, Manhasset Jewelers and Louie’s Manhasset. Even grown-ups enjoyed the afternoon. “It was a success,” declared Robbie Donno of Manhasset, founder/director of Gift of Life International. This Rotary-associated foundation has helped tens of thousands children from around the world with life-saving heart surgeries. To comment on this story, email

Editor’s note: The following letter was sent by Manhasset School District Acting Superintendent of Schools Dr. Gaurav Passi to the school community on Oct. 18, updating residents on the computer hacking the district suffered beginning on Sept. 14. The Manhasset Press reached out to the district, via its external media representatives, for updates, but as of press time had not received any. Dear Manhasset School Community, As we have previously communicated, criminals encrypted the school district’s computer systems with ransomware last month. In response, we alerted law enforcement and worked with cybersecurity experts to investigate the incident. Due to security updates completed by our network engineers and IT staff that included network segmentation, we were able to restore our computer systems from backups. As such, the district did not make any ransom payment to the criminals. We were notified that yesterday, the criminals posted certain files to the dark web that they stole from our servers. We are currently reviewing these files, and we will provide direct notification, in accordance with

applicable laws, to any individual whose personal information was potentially acquired by these criminals. Direct notification will contain additional information about the incident and describe measures that can be taken to protect affected individuals from identity theft. For those individuals whose Social Security numbers and/or driver’s license numbers were contained in the stolen files the direct notification will also include instructions regarding how to enroll in complimentary credit monitoring. In the interim, we encourage you to remain vigilant by regularly reviewing your credit reports and financial account statements for any unauthorized activity. If you see charges or activity that you did not authorize, please contact the relevant financial

institution immediately. Our district was the victim of a criminal enterprise, and we understand how upsetting this is for our community. Unfortunately, ransomware attacks have been on the rise. We are one of the latest victims in this growing trend which has targeted other school districts, hospitals, and municipalities across the country. The district takes data security very seriously, and we are implementing several additional measures to enhance our security in an effort to prevent an incident like this from reoccurring in the future. —Submitted by the Manhasset School District

All school leadership is being called to action to protect parental choice, local controi and constitutional protections. We must not give up without a fight. We as a community must actively seek to preserve our constitutional protections. In the spirit of the Town of North Hempstead Constitution Week that starts this Friday [Sept. 24] we ask that you contact the law firm, listen to their free consultation and consider that your decisions have the levity for establishing precedent for generations to come. We will assist you in whatever you need to protect the school district from a potential government overreach. We ask that you give it immediate attention as time is of the essence. —The letter was released by the school district after a FOIA request by the Manhasset Press

Middle School Among The State’s Elite One of only nine tabbed from Long Island


anhasset Middle School was ranked in the top 50 public middle schools in New York, according to a new ranking from U.S. News and World Report. Manhasset came in at rank 40 and is one of only nine middle schools from Long Island to make the top 50. More than 1,200 middle schools in the state were ranked in total. “I am proud of our students, staff and the entire Manhasset Middle School community. This latest ranking is a reflection of the hard work, dedication and achievements earned by our students,” Secondary School Principal Dr. Dean Schlanger said. Scoring is based on students’ performance on mathematics and reading/ language arts state assessments. The data that was used is from the 2018-19 academic year, preceding the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on test-taking. This was the first year U.S. News and World Report released rankings for public elementary and middle schools. Unlike high school rankings, there are no national rankings of elementary and middle schools. —Submitted by the Manhasset School District

Celebrating Successful Al Fresco Partnership


own of North Hempstead Councilmembers Veronica Lurvey, Viviana Russell and Mariann Dalimonte, along with Town Clerk Wayne Wink, celebrated the final Manhasset Al Fresco event for the year on October 17. The Town partnered with the Manhasset Chamber of Commerce to bring the event to a closed-off portion of Plandome Road as part of its “Lift Up Local” initiative. The “Lift Up Local” program was created to assist small businesses

that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Manhasset Al Fresco, which was held on alternating Sundays beginning June 27, temporarily allowed restaurants and retail stores an additional way to expand their operations outside and offered a street fair atmosphere allowing residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy a night out with friends and family. —Submitted by the Town of North Hempstead

Country Faces Supply Chain Crisis Holiday season is likely to be affected BY ANTHONY MURRAY AND FRANK RIZZO /


he pandemic not only can affect your health, it can affect your wallet too. If you strolled through any store lately, you’ve most likely noticed that shelves have been looking quite sparse these days. With the holiday season quickly approaching there is no guarantee those shelves will replenish anytime soon, which has some concerned. Toy company Hasbro reported approximately $100 million in orders were not filled in its third quarter due to port congestion and other supply chain issues, which resulted in a hit to operating profit as a result of lower sales and higher freight costs. Other companies are also facing the same issue. So why is this happening now when it seems that the pandemic is starting to subside once again? It’s simple. There are not enough supplies to meet the consumer’s demands now that people are returning to more normal life activities, which is now causing inflation. Factories and manufacturers in Asian countries such as Vietnam, China, South Korea and Taiwan—where most of the world’s manufacturing capacity is—were hit particularly hard by COVID-19. Factories were forced to shut down or reduce production because of the rampant caseload of virus those countries experienced. Now that factories are starting to slowly reopen, it’s a game of catch-up. “We have disruption in the supply at the same time demand is through the roof,” U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said. “The bottom line is that it’s frustrating for Americans who see prices higher or lead times longer.” The fact that there is a record number of people quitting their jobs is also complicating things. Approximately 4.3 million Americans quit their jobs in August—the most since the Department of Labor started tracking this data in 2000. In July, the Labor Department

One of the many trailers owned by JJS Transportation, founded in Manhasset more than 70 years ago and still a family-owned and -operated business. (Contributed photo) reported that the warehouse industry had a record 490,000 job openings. With so many openings, companies like Walmart, Target and Amazon are trying to get workers by offering them benefits as well as free college tuition. The lack of truck drivers to transport goods once they’re finally offloaded from the dock is also complicating matters. According to the American Trucking Associations (ATA), the U.S. has a shortage of around 80,000 truck drivers—a record high within the industry. According to Goldman Sachs, more than 30 million tons of cargo await delivery ahead of the Thanksgiving to Christmas rush, which makes images being shown of container ships floating in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans waiting to unload its cargo all the more daunting. The White House has now decided to step in to try and alleviate the bottlenecking of goods coming into ports. “As long as the pandemic continues, we’re going to see all kinds of disruptions,” United States Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg said. “If COVID shuts down a port in China or a shoe factory in Vietnam in September, you’re going to notice that

in the mall in December or January. [We’re] working with the ports to get them open 24/7, which hadn’t been the norm until now, and [we’re] working to make it easier for truck drivers to get commercial driving licenses and cut out some of that red tape to get those goods flowing.”

Transportation, a trucking company that owns import and export warehouses and operates at metropolitan area airports and shipping ports. Its approximately 200 employees and 100 tractors and box trucks serve customers in the tri-state area as well as Pennsylvania. According to Sarcona, the problems customers have had with the delays in ocean shipping, which typically take a month to travel from Pacific People will have to rim countries, have made them rethink the distributurn to the more costly air freight.

There is an incredible level of interconnectedness around the global supply chain, he said, likening it to the “butterfly effect,” the theory that the beating of a butterfly’s wings start a process that will result in a hurricane in another part of the world. Traveling to his company’s warehouse in Elizabeth, NJ, he has seen the container ships waiting to unload. “Each container ship carries 10 to 12,000 containers—and each container is a truck,” he pointed out. “It’s quite amazing that ports, which are heavily automated, can unload an entire ship within 48 hours.” There is still a massive amount of freight coming in, he said, but because of the labor shortage and trucker shortage it’s outstripping the ability of airlines and shipping ports to handle it in a timely manner. In normal times the supply chain takes six to eight weeks from order to delivery. These days, he said, its more like nine to 14 weeks. Regarding the future, Sarcona said, “People will have to rethink the distribution model and the time period in which goods and services are delivered.” He gave kudos to the people in his industry who have had to deal with an unprecedented situation and challenges. “They are working so incredibly hard,” he said. “We’ve been incredibly proud of the workers and team members at places like JJS. They have selflessly given their effort to work at unprecedented levels. They’re being innovative in working with each other and are working long hours in very difficult conditions. The people who work for JJS have done an unbelievable job and it has brought forth more of a team feeling.” What did you think of this article?

MacArthur High School Generals Win Title BY JAMES ROWAN


he MacArthur soccer team won the Conference A1 title with an unbeaten record of 10 wins, no losses and four ties. It marks another successful campaign for veteran coach Andy Atkins, who has shaped the Generals into perennial contenders. They enter the playoffs as the No. 4 seed in Nassau. MacArthur allowed just six goals all season, while posting 10 shutouts, the most in the county. The Generals finished in a tie with Mepham at the top of the conference, but MacArthur won the tiebreaker, allowing one fewer goal than the Pirates. The defense was stellar for MacArthur all season long. Goalkeeper Tyler Behr was outstanding, as was the rest of the Generals back line. Matt Cassidy, Tyler Mormondo, Joe Iannuzzi, Gianni Nino and Mike Powers smothered opposing offenses. Joey Mahoney and Nick Del Grosso played both sides of the field but made strong contributions to MacArthur’s

Sophomore keeper Dylan Labonte has also been up to the task when called upon. The offense has been opportunistic and found the net when it counted. Cristian Perez Franco led the team with six goals and five assists.

Mahoney and James Eden each had five goals and two assists. Jason Tordy had two goals and five assists and Austen Roth had three goals. Kieran Weber, the corner kick specialist, had one goal and two assists. Iannuzzi also added two goals and two assists.

The Generals have had a flair for the dramatic. In a 3-3 tie with Long Beach, MacArthur came from behind on each occasion to earn a pivotal tie. The final equalizer came with just 32 seconds left, as Eden headed home a cross from Weber. In a home match against Great Neck North, Perez Franco scored off a pass from Tordy with just three seconds remaining in the game to give the Generals a 1-0 victory. It’s now off to the playoffs for MacArthur. Conference A1 sends four clubs into the postseason—MacArthur, Mepham, Jericho and Long Beach. Additional MacArthur contributors are Jack Mauer, Nolan Tordy, Jack Longobucco, Ryan Jimenez, Dylan Weber, Cristian Del Torro, Dan Myung, Alan Moscoso and Ryan Previlon. General Update. Dustin Genco, captain of last year’s MacArthur squad, has appeared in 10 games for St. Joseph’s College and has started eight. A defender, Genco scored his first collegiate goal on Oct. 20 against Mt. St. Vincent. —James Rowan is a Levittown resident

Jericho High School Students Help Those In Need

ericho High School seniors Harrison Kane, Yana Gupta, and Pooja Trehan wanted to do something that would not only help the community but also provide a club in which students could earn community service hours. They took matters into their own hands and founded the Jericho Chapter of the American Red Cross. Sophomore Allie L. joined the Jericho Red Cross Club last year and said, “It provides me with a stressfree environment where I can also have fun at events like soliciting for important Red Cross relief causes.” The increased level of interest by new club members paralleled the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving the club with more than 100 volunteers. One of the most unique aspects of this club is that students from other high schools in the area can participate as well because the Jericho Red Cross Club is an outside of school club. Jericho Red Cross Club members solicit outside of Grace’s Marketplace to raise money for the American Red Cross Home Fire Prevention Campaign. Some of the initiatives that the Red Cross Club members have already taken include: creating first aid kits, documenting emergency escape plans, planning for disaster assistance, writing thank you

cards to health care workers and first responders, and creating a mental health brochure specifically designed for students dealing with pandemic stress. Sophomore Emerson C. joined the Jericho Red Cross Club last year. “Volunteering with the Jericho Red Cross Club and being able to help give back warms my heart. In addition, doing projects that are

helpful in case of emergencies, like making a fire escape plan for my house, makes me feel safer and more prepared,” she said. She added, “The club also gives me an opportunity to learn about important current relief causes and how I can help.” The Jericho Red Cross Club is currently planning new volunteer opportunities which can be held in person, including events such as beach and park clean ups. The club has been successful, raising over $1,000 for the American Red Cross Home Fire Prevention Campaign after one day of soliciting. Club co-founder Pooja Trehan said, “In March 2020, when COVID first started, I wanted to create a way to help spread joy in our community by giving back. Now, about a year later, I have done so by helping to create the Jericho Red Cross Club.” For more information on how to join the Jericho Red Cross Club, email jerichoredcrossclub@gmail. com and check out @jerichoredcross on Instagram to stay updated on new ways to give back to the community.

The Friends Of The Cedarmere To Host Free Webinar About William Cullen Bryant A free webinar will be launched on Sunday, Nov. 7 at 3 p.m. that explores William Cullen Bryant’s response to Reconstruction in his poetry, letters and journalism as he grapples with the devastation wrought by the Civil War and the lasting legacy of slavery. It draws a connection between Bryant, America’s first poet, and Amanda Gorman, a poet writing today about similar problems. Presented by The Friends of Cedarmere with actress Tzena Nicole, it is enlivened with historical images and an original musical composition. The challenges in Bryant’s America in the decades following the Civil War, the political struggle over voting rights and the attempt to create a fledgling democracy, continue to this very day. What might we learn from Bryant to shed light

on today’s threats to democracy? This webinar is offered by the non-profit Friends of Cedarmere ( to support the restoration of Bryant’s house and gardens and to provide programming that will make Bryant’s diverse accomplishments better known. Cedarmere, Bryant’s home at 225

Pedaling Out Of The Pandemic

Hicksville seniors and local nonprofit spearhead fundraiser for underprivileged kids BY DAVE GIL DE RUBIO


hen COVID-19 pressed a major existential pause button for the world, nonprofit organizations took a major wallop. For Albertson-based Children’s Hope India (CHI), the impact was no less severe. It was especially felt by the Long Island chapter of teens that were forced to stop and recalibrate. Led by team leaders Rohan Manjreka and Jesse Kohli, the 11-member strong group that is also made up of students from the Jericho, Syosset, Valley Stream, Seaford and Herricks school districts, had to balance full high school course loads (often done remotely) with trying to raise money for the less fortunate at a time when many donors were cutting back and previous in-person fund raisers weren’t an option. One event in particular, the group’s annual walkathon, wound up not being held in 2020. This year saw the two Hicksville High School seniors and the rest of their membership intent on relaunching this highly popular fund raiser. It is structured so that 100 percent of its proceeds are earmarked to send underprivileged children to an eight-week, all-expense paid summer camp and in 2019, 25 kids were lucky enough to attend Young People’s Day Camp, which was held at Hicksville’s Our Lady of Mercy school. The coronavirus wound up providing inspiration for the group to pivot and get participants off their feet and onto wheels in going from walkathon to bikeathon. “At the beginning of this year, one of our team members suggested we maybe try biking as a result of the pandemic,” Kohli explained. “When people were under lockdown last year, we saw a lot of people wanting to get outdoors. A lot of people started biking. At Walmart, we all know the bikes were out of stock. It was almost like a Black Friday sale on the bikes. And we saw that within our friends, they loved biking and going on long biking trips. We decided it would be a great opportunity to do a bikeathon fundraiser.” The decision was made to move this fundraiser from spring to the fall with the idea that cooler temperatures would be more conducive to people participating on Sunday, Oct. 4. Up until that point, the CHI Long Island chapter held car washes and other smaller fund raising events, finally switching its efforts to the bikeathon roughly a month before it was being held. Not surprisingly, locking in commitments proved to be a major challenge.

(Missing: Alina Nodrat and Patrick Labarca) (Photos courtesy of Ria Parasher) “As much as we’ve been there the past few years planning a lot of fund raisers, we’re not as well known as a lot of the bigger charities that are out there like Island Harvest,” Kohli said. “We did a lot of work and had our team members reaching out to a lot of corporate sponsors. We went to different local businesses asking for sponsorships. It was definitely a challenge we were able to overcome and make the best out of in terms of getting funding that way. It’s bridging that gap between people saying they’ll come and making it happen. We kind of implemented a lot of things like social media outreach. We had digital registration to make it easier so people could register ahead of time. Reaching out to the community is how we overcame that. We tapped into a lot of different things like high school students and our parents, who are part of a lot of different local communities here.” Spearheaded by the Long Island chapter of CHI, the bikeathon had further support coming from sister chapters in New Jersey and Manhattan. Roughly 100 bikers turned out as 25

CHI members handed out water, held raffles and directed participants for this event that ran from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and was a series of three laps around North Hempstead Beach Park that clocked in at just under five miles. For Manjreka, who joined CHI with Kohli when both were freshmen, the bikeathon’s success is especially rewarding given the fact that his sister, who recently graduated from Stony Brook University, founded the student-led Long Island chapter. “My favorite part [of the bikeathon]

Team leaders from left: Rohan Manjrekar and Jesse Kohli was definitely seeing everyone come together after COVID-19,” Manjreka said. “After being stuck inside for so long, it was nice to see everyone was outside and having a good time. It was important to make sure all the money goes to these underprivileged kids.” Visit to find out more about Children’s Hope India. To comment on this story, email

North High Girls Varsity Soccer Team Wins Conference Championship


he Great Neck North Girls Varsity Soccer team completed a successful season with an undefeated regular-season record and the program’s first Conference Championship title in 24 years. “Our soccer season can be best categorized as the perfect blend of nine amazing seniors of incredible caliber mixed with a strong group of hungry younger girls,” Erik Connolly, team coach and a physical education teacher at North High, said. According to Coach Connolly, the team’s chemistry was evident from their very first game of the season, which ended in a 3-1 win over Sewanhaka. “Each night our girls came focused with a desire that was undeniable. Goal after goal, victory after victory, we kept getting stronger and more confident.” The team continued to demonstrate a high level of determination and grit throughout the season, including two

games against Roslyn that ended in a tie. After the Blazers won their final game of the regular season against Elmont, the team anxiously awaited the outcome of the match between Roosevelt and Roslyn—as Roslyn also maintained an undefeated record throughout the regular season. When that matchup ended in a tie, North High had sole possession of first place and the conference title. On Oct. 20, the North High Girls Soccer team fought a well-deserved postseason battle against Bellmore JFK. Though the Blazers lost the playoff match, Coach Connolly said it in no way tarnished the team’s amazing undefeated season. “The girls were so ecstatic to be in the playoffs that after the game it was a love fest with many tears—myself included—and tons of admiration, deservedly for the seniors,” Coach Connolly said. —Submitted by Great Neck Public Schools

President Signs Harlem Hellfighters Bill Regiment earns Congressional Gold Medal



ast month Congressman Tom Suozzi attended a White House signing ceremony in the Oval Office as President Joseph Biden signed legislation to award the Harlem Hellfighters a long-overdue Congressional Gold Medal. “It is never too late to do the right thing. When I first met with the Willett family and listened to their stories, I knew we had to get this done and today, with the president’s signature, the Harlem Hellfighters Congressional Gold Medal Act is now law,” Suozzi said. “Awarding the Harlem Hellfighters the Congressional Gold Medal ensures that generations of Americans will now fully comprehend the selfless service, sacrifices and heroism displayed by these men in spite of the pervasive racism and segregation of the times. I am grateful to the many people who helped see this long-overdue recognition come to fruition, including Senator Charles Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Congressman Adriano Espaillat.” Espaillat, of Harlem, is one of the lead co-sponsors of the legislation. The Harlem Hellfighters’ Congressional Gold Medal represents only the 179th ever awarded to institutions, people or events, since the American Revolution.

Background on the Harlem Hellfighters:

The Harlem Hellfighters were an African American infantry regiment in WWI that spent 191 days in combat, more than any other American regiment. In 1918, the U.S. Army decided to assign the Hellfighters to the French Army for the duration of American participation in World War I because many white American soldiers refused to perform combat duty with African Americans. The U.S. Army refused to issue the regiment weapons. They were instead issued French weapons, helmets, belts and pouches, although they continued to wear their U.S. uniforms. Nicknamed “Hommes de Bronze”

(Men of Bronze) by the French and “Hollenkampfer” (Hellfighters) by the Germans due to their tenacity, the Hellfighters were the first unit of the French, British, or American armies to reach the Rhine River at the end of the war. The unit earned 11 French citations and a unit Croix de Guerre and 170 soldiers were awarded the French Croix de Guerre. Despite the courage, sacrifice and dedication proudly displayed by the

necessary documentation through the National Personnel Records Center. In November of 2019, at a ceremony at Glen Cove’s North Shore Historical Museum, Suozzi surprised the Willett family by presenting a posthumous Purple Heart to Harlem Hellfighter Sgt. Leander Willett “for wounds received as a result of hostile actions” in France on Oct. 4, 1918.

Harlem Hellfighters Harlem Hellfighters to their country, they returned home to face racism and segregation from their fellow countrymen.

Background on work with the Willett Family:

In 2019, Suozzi was approached by the Glen Cove Willett family (represented today by Debra Willett) for help in obtaining a Purple Heart for Harlem Hellfighter Sgt. Leander Willett. After initially being declined for lack of documentation, Suozzi and his office persevered and were able to secure the

Background on the Congressional Gold Medal:

The Congressional Gold Medal is an award bestowed by the United States Congress, to honor those, individually or as a group, “who have performed an achievement that has an impact on American history and culture that is likely to be recognized as a major achievement in the recipient’s field, long after the achievement.” The practice of issuing gold medals to honor recipients from the military began during the American Revolution. The Congressional Gold Medal will be designed and struck by the United States Mint and displayed at the Smithsonian Institution and at events associated with the Harlem Hellfighters. Bronze versions of the medals are struck for sale by the U.S. Mint, and may be available in both larger and smaller sizes. There have been only two other Congressional Gold Medals awarded to distinguished African American military groups: the Tuskegee Airmen in 2007 and the Montfort Point Marines in 2011, both from World War II.

n Sunday, Sept. 19, more than 400 participants came together to “Remember and Celebrate Jimmy” as well as all the precious lives lost over the past 20 years. This event is typically held annually in Manhattan on Hero’s Highway (West Side Highway), but this year it was brought back to Manhasset, the hometown of Sgt. James J. “Jimmy” Regan.

Who’s Jimmy?

Regan was an exemplary scholar-athlete at Chaminade High School where he was recognized for his academic, sports and community achievements. As a result of his academic record and his All-American award on the lacrosse field, Regan was recruited by Duke University on a lacrosse scholarship.

While a student-athlete there, he led the Duke team to two ACC championships. He graduated with a degree in economics and was poised on the brink of a happy and fulfilling life before he made a life changing decision. Deeply affected by the terror attacks of 9/11 Regan rejected lucrative Wall Street job opportunities and law school scholarships to volunteer for a military service. In February of 2004, Regan decided to enlist and join the Army and was assigned to company C, 3rd Battalion in the 75th Ranger Regiment. While serving four tours of duty for the 3rd Battalion, he was killed by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) which targeted his vehicle in northern Iraq in February of 2007. Regan’s four tours were split between Afghanistan and Iraq, both of which are considered the deadliest place to serve. Instead of backing down, Regan paid the ultimate sacrifice standing up for the freedoms of his country. Shortly before his death, he was promoted to the rank

of Sergeant where he led his brothers with pride and honor. The loss of Regan was an immense tragedy to everyone who knew and loved him. He left behind his loving fiancee, his parents and his three sisters. Through Lead The Way Fund, his family and friends strive to honor his spirit, his patriotism and the way he lived his life by combining our efforts to give back to his brothers, the U.S. Army Rangers.

Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund would like to thank all the runners and families who participated in this event and exceeded all of the fundraising expectations. Thanks also to Brother Tom Sgt. James Regan Cleary (president of Chaminade High School), the Atwell, Sarcona, Brodsky, and Vlahos families, the Town of North Hempstead, Mark About The Race At the race in September, runners end- Sauvigne and the Manhasset Park ed their race at Mary Jane Davies Park on District, the Village of Munsey Park, the Hon.

Jimmy’s Run through Manhasset in September of 2021 assistance, recovery, transition and veterans organization that provides financial support, beyond what the government and the VA can offer, to the U.S. Army Rangers and the families of those who have died, have been disabled or who are currently serving in harm’s way around the world. Lead The Way Fund currently has programs to aid the specific needs of Army Rangers. These programs range in efforts of physical care and rehabilitation to wounded or ill Rangers, activities and financial support for the Family Readiness Groups and family members of Rangers, support for spouses

and dependents left behind by the heroes who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Homes are also built from the ground up to have full accessibility for severely wounded Rangers. The fund also offers educational help and guidance for those who want to enter the workforce after serving and most importantly, provides an outlet to focus and improve on the mental health of Army Rangers. With the creation of these programs, it is the fund’s mission to lead these Rangers back. Visit to learn more about the organization and how to get involved.

The Leathernecks MC Long Island chapter (pictured above) led by President Frank Danetra hosted its 20th anniversary motorcycle run. This run benefits veterans in the Northport Veterans hospital. Veterans at the VA were elated to to see all the motorcycles pass in review. The Leathernecks MC would like to thank Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino, Councilman Tom Hand, County Legislator Laura Schaeffer and Rolling Thunder New York Chapter 6 members for their continued support and participation. The New York State Police dutifully escorted the ride to the VA hospital. The Leathernecks MC also extends its most gracious thanks to the veteran and motorcycle communitites for their support for more than 20 years on this run. Semper Fidelis. See www. for more photos.

Village Board Focuses On Speeding


peeding in the village has been a frequent topic of conversation at recent Board meetings and the issue continues to be a prime concern for Trustees. Commissioner Kenneth Jackson said traffic enforcement on Garden City’s 96 miles of roads is always a top priority for the department, which has beefed up enforcement at many of the village’s hot spots. “Excessive speed is a Village-wide issue,” Commissioner Jackson said. “Many ask me what’s the revenue that we get from traffic enforcement. I always say, ‘less accidents.’ I’ve always said that. I care more about saving lives than revenues received. As a Department, we are attacking this issue as best we can and I do believe we are making in-roads.” The department often analyzes accident data, including what factors led to the crashes, and considers observations made by residents, business employees, village board members, property owners’ association representatives and police officers. The

department uses this information to properly focus on problem areas. In addition to the department’s already rigorous traffic enforcement program, several modifications have been made to address aggressive driving violations. One officer has been added to the Traffic Enforcement Squad. Officers assigned to overlapping tours have been assigned to traffic enforcement details. A decoy vehicle has been deployed to known high-speed locations and a portable speed indicator sign is utilized on an alternate basis in high complaint areas. While their main function is patrol, members assigned to the Patrol Division have been directed to address Stop sign violations on their posts as well as other violations that commonly occur in residential areas. During the first nine months of 2021, officers issued 8,359 traffic tickets. Between April 1 and Oct. 11, officers issued a total of 5,959 tickets, 1,227 of which were for excessive speed violations. Further, traffic enforcement efforts have had a significant

impact on the reduction of auto crashes in the village this year as compared to 2020 and pre-pandemic levels in 2019, Commissioner Jackson noted. Earlier in the year, the department participated in the Statewide “Speed Awareness Week Enforcement Mobilization” and the NYS Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee’s “No Empty Chair” campaign, an enforcement and education initiative that promotes safe driving habits of young drivers particularly in the vicinity of schools. During this campaign, the Garden City Police Department focused its efforts on the enforcement of violations such as speeding in school zones, cell phone/ texting violations and passing stopped school bus violations. The department issued 166 tickets, including eight excessive speed violations in a school zone, 13 excessive speed violations, six red light violations and seven Stop sign violations. During the police department’s recent aggressive driving campaign in September, which coincided with the first

week of schools and concentrated on locations in the vicinity of schools, bus stops and student pedestrian routes, officers issued numerous tickets for speeding, speeding in school zones, disobeying traffic signs, passing Stop signs, passing school buses and passing red traffic lights. The village has entered into an agreement with the New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee to participate in a grant funded, statewide police traffic services program aimed at, among other things, reducing dangerous driving behaviors. The Department’s grant totals $21,000, a $2,500 increase over last year. To raise public awareness throughout the village, speed indicator signs are operational in the vicinity of Garden City High School, Garden City Middle School and on Clinton Road. The signs indicate the posted speed limit and your speed as you approach them. These signs serve as another tool to help mitigate speeding in the Village. This month, following resident concerns about an upsurge in collisions

at the intersection of Stratford Avenue and New Hyde Park Road due to the installation of the LIRR underpass, the Traffic Commission approved the placement of speed indicator signs northbound and southbound on New Hyde Park Road. Both signs have been installed and are operational. In addition, speed indicator signs have been installed on Stewart Avenue in the vicinity of the Garden City Country Club and are awaiting electrical connection. Speed indicator signs are also scheduled to be installed on Rockaway Avenue, in the vicinity of Cherry Valley Club, and on Franklin Avenue, in the vicinity of St. Joseph’s School. “Commissioner Jackson and I want all of our residents to drive safely and at the posted village speed limits,” Mayor Cosmo Veneziale said. “We have stepped up traffic safety enforcement on all village roads. I want to get the message out that we don’t want speeding in the Village. We want our children and our residents to be safe.” —Submitted by the Village of Garden City

A Homecoming That Travels BY FRANK RIZZO

ew school districts do a homecoming parade quite like Westbury. Marching about 1½ miles the length of Post Avenue and finishing near the athletic fields, the parade took as its themes “The Festivals of the World,” with impressive floats drawing applause from onlookers. Special ed teacher Larry Minor served as grand marshal and alumni from the Class of 1971 were in attendance. The float themes were as follows: Senior class: “Lunar New Year”; Juniors: “Rio Carnival”; Sophomores: “Venetian Carnival”; Freshmen: “Junkanoo,” named after a street festival featuring mixed African origins popular in the Caribbean; Middle School: “Holi Festival of Colors,” a popular festival originated in India; Drexel Avenue School: “Day of the Dead”; Powells Lane School: “Mardi Gras”; Dryden Avenue School: “Jouvert,” a traditional Caribbean festival preceding Lent; and Park Avenue School: “Caribana,” a Caribbean festival originating in Toronto. One of the most impressive groups was the large contingent of the school’s Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps, one of the school’s elective courses. Led by retired Navy officers Richard Immarigeon and William Caraballo—both naval science instructors—the NJROTC is “sponsored by the school board and closely monitored by school administrators,” according to a recruiting letter.

Curran Unveils David S. Mack Center For Training And Intelligence


assau County Executive Laura Curran and Police Commissioner Patrick J. Ryder recently hosted an official opening and building dedication ceremony of the David S. Mack Center for Training and Intelligence. Construction on this state-of-the-art facility, located on the campus of the Nassau Community College, began in 2018 and was just recently completed. The new center will be used to train a multitude of agencies and its members including recruits, police officers, communications bureau operators, probation officers, corrections officers, and deputy sheriffs, among others. Local, state and federal agencies will also utilize the facility for training and investigative purposes. The center will serve as a community hub for the County, hosting programs such as the Police Youth Academy, Citizens Police Academy, Police Athletic League (PAL), and Nassau County Law Enforcement Explorers. The David S. Mack Center for Training and Intelligence is dedicated to the men and women who serve and have served in the police department. Until the new 89,000-square-foot facility’s completion, the Nassau County Police Department, the 13th largest police department in the country, had not had its own training facility in almost four decades. Since 1982, the NCPD had been shuttled around the county to various vacant spaces for training, including most recently the old Hawthorne Elementary School in Massapequa Park. “It’s a proud and historic day for Nassau County. This cutting-edge facility will ensure that we continue to have the best-trained and most effective police force so we can keep Nassau the safest county in America. The David

Mack Center for Training and Intelligence will be a vital resource for the entire law enforcement community, ensuring that our police training, intelligence, and counter-terrorism have access to the best technology, tools, and high-tech data analytics required in order to proactively address the threats facing our region now and in the future. From my very first day as County Executive, I have been pushing to get this academy built—and we got the job done. It wouldn’t have been possible without David Mack, and I want to thank him especially for his support,” Curran said. Ryder added, “Today’s official opening and dedication of the David S. Mack Center for Training and Intelligence brings Nassau County policing and Intelligence to the next generation. On any given day there can be hundreds of recruits and officers receiving

important training in Cultural Diversity, Ethical Awareness, Deescalation and instruction on penal law and criminal procedure law. The Field House will help us continue to promote community relations as many programs will be held in this facility. Our intelligence-led policing model continues to keep Nassau County as the safest community in America for the last two years.” The David S. Mack Center for Training and Intelligence ushers in a new era in police, correction officer, deputy sheriff, and probation officer training and community engagement in Nassau County. Main components of the new, modernized training center include: • Asset Forfeiture and Intelligence Lead Development Center • 500-seat Auditorium • Fitness Center • Emergency Vehicle

Operations Course • Physical Training and Defensive Tactics Warehouse • 10 multi-purpose classrooms that can be combined to five-large 70-person rooms for training • SCIF—a ‘Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility’ to process classified information (the only one on Long Island) The new facility will provide ample benefits, including assisting NCPD recruitment efforts through partnership with the Nassau Community College and its diverse student population. The new center allows NCPD to utilize new technology and implement a state-of-the-art Real Time Intelligence Center that will integrate current technology, intelligence gathering tools and create the most effective and efficient police department that will

continue to provide the safest community for its residents. The Center provides access to Nassau’s 18 village and city police departments situated throughout Nassau County, as well to New York City and Suffolk County. Additionally, the center serves to strengthen relationships within the Law Enforcement Community through joint trainings including but not limited to the FBI, DEA, IRS, USSS and ATF. The Nassau County Police Department Foundation was formed in 2008 to assist the building of this critical facility through public and private sector donations. The Foundation recommended that the County name the facility in honor of David S. Mack thanks to his generous contributions to the Foundation and the entire law enforcement community. —Submitted by the office of Nassau County Executive Laura Curran

RESPONDING TO THE RESPONSE Editor’s note: The following is a reply to a letter by Eric Post and Arnie Herz of the American Jewish Committee criticizing the writer for ascribing to the Jewish people the actions of the State of Israel. I did not at any point demonize the Jewish religion. I specifically demonized Jewish right wing politics. I don’t know if these gentlemen had not heard any of the news of the bombing of the Arab population. It has happened over and over through the

years. My personal memory only goes back to 1969, but it’s always been that way. I don’t know if you don’t know better or you deliberately mis-characterized what I said in my response to the Ben and Jerry’s boycott request. But also not to criticize the religion. Just going back to the founder—and not just of Judaism, but of Christianity and Islam as well—Abraham cheated on Sarah and had a baby. Then Sarah finally got pregnant and Abraham cast out his first born son

I also said when a left wing government is in charge, there’s no problem.

Though COVID restrictions may not be as strict as last year, we still plan to take a cautious approach to ensure that all involved are safe. We

understand that this may be a year when many may not be able to help us. We also know that it is a year when many are more in need than ever. With that in mind, the following is what we are planning and how you may be able to contribute. We will be providing all the fixings for 30 local families to make their own meal, which includes a large amount of fresh produce. We would appreciate donations of the following items: boxes: stuffing mix, muffin mix, instant mashed potatoes, au gratin or scalloped potatoes, cake mix, brownie mix, canned icing; cans: turkey gravy, cranberry sauce, vegetables; bottles: 48oz—64oz plastic or canned fruit juice, V-8, or ice tea as well as single-serving plastic bottles/cans of the same. We kindly ask no glass bottles, no juice boxes, no water, no soda. We will also need 30 16-20 pound frozen turkeys for the families.

These items can be dropped off at our home at 35 Maxwell Rd. in Garden City. Please call us as soon as possible to coordinate a convenient drop off time. We will be providing full hot dinners for approximately 200 homebound seniors. We will not be accepting homemade desserts or breads this year, nor will we be asking anyone to roast and slice any turkeys for us. We will be purchasing individually wrapped baked goods and will be purchasing the turkey cooked and sliced for us from a local market. We will be providing everything needed to make complete meals and would appreciate any financial donations. Hot meals will be delivered on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25, starting at noon. Visits this year will be allowed, but we urge you to exercise caution. All those delivering must wear gloves, which we

will provide, as well as wear a face mask. We would recommend that no more than two people enter the home and that a safe distance be kept from the recipient. We deliver meals throughout Nassau County; please call us if you are able to help with the delivery of the meals. This year will be the 26th year we have coordinated this project. It is a special part of our family tradition, and we invite you to make it part of yours, as well. Your generous donations of food, money, and time have made the deliveries a tremendous success each year. With your help, we can continue to bring a meal and a smile to those who are alone on the holiday. Feel free to contact us at 516-746-8331 regarding any part of this program. We thank you all for your continued support each year. —Melinda and John Alford

Long Island Libraries About To Go Fee-Less There was a great Seinfeld episode from 1991 called “The Library.” Jerry is pursued by a library investigations officer, Lt. Bookman. Apparently, he never returned the book Tropic of Cancer from his high school days in 1971. Although the episode never revealed the amount of fine Jerry eventually paid, an overdue book spanning 20 years would cost a pretty penny, even at just five cents per day. Of course, it was utter nonsense. Anyone with a long-overdue (or lost) library book knows the most you can be fined is the cost of replacing the book. A quick check on Amazon reveals you can get a paperback copy of Tropic for less than $15. I’ve had a library card since the fourth grade. I always tried to respect the return date. As kids, we didn’t have a lot of disposable income and nickels were hard to come by. Returning books on time to avoid a fine was not the primary reason. We were taught to have respect for the books in the library. Since kids in the fourth and fifth grades didn’t necessarily have transportation to and from the main Massapequa libraries (we had two of them), we depended on the Bookmobile. Every Wednesday, like clockwork, the Bookmobile would show up at Eastlake Elementary School, just outside the teacher’s parking lot. Returning books on time


taught us responsibility, but more importantly, we wanted the book available for the next kid. There was an unwritten rule to never take more books than you could read in a week because the bookmobile inventory was limited. If a particular book was not available, we could ask the mobile librarian to bring it next week. She often would do that for her best customers (like me). The responsibility and respect for borrowed library books stayed with me, even today. Of course, I’ve missed a due date or two as an adult and had to pony up my share of late fees. One thing I have never done is dispute a late charge. I am especially aware of the due dates for new releases. The fines are more significant, but that’s not the reason. I know there are people on a waiting list, just like I was. But now, Long Island libraries are joining the growing trend to no longer collect late fees for overdue items. Half

of Long Island’s 110 libraries have already implemented the no-fee policy. Apparently, this encouraged people who felt alienated by the financial cost of returning an item late. I guess I missed the protests on the steps of the libraries over their draconian five-cents-perday late fees after two weeks. Following in the footsteps of cities like Chicago, San Francisco Seattle, and many more, all three New York City library systems recently stopped collecting overdue fees. Out here on Long Island, some libraries have gone completely feeless. In contrast, others have

adopted a hybrid system that allows children and seniors to skip their fines. Just another perk for us seniors. One would think that removing the specter of overdue fees would cause borrowers to take advantage and hang on to things longer, just because they could. Not so. Apparently, more people are returning borrowed items on time now than when there was a fine imposed. That is probably because the biggest users of libraries today are people from my generation. We learned to accept its lending policies as kids and return books out of respect, not

to avoid late fees. I wonder if 10 or 20 years from now, people will still be returning borrowed items on time if they don’t have to. I’ll bet every year, more and more people start hanging on to books just a little longer than before. Respect and responsibility go only so far in human beings unless there is a “penalty” for non-compliance. Even if it’s only a nickel. 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.

Time To Secure Our New York City Transit Subway System From Flooding Super Storm Sandy in 2012 resulted in extensive flooding damage to the New York City (NYC) Transit subway system. In the aftermath, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) provided billions in discretionary funding under the Super Storm Sandy Recovery and Resiliency program to MTA. This supplemented over $1 billion in annual FTA formula funding that has grown to $1.5 billion today. NYC Transit should have learned from Super Storm


Sandy which of the 471 subway stations and 36 subway lines were most vulnerable to

flooding or located in flood zones. Remedial actions should have been completed years ago. Fast forward to 2021. After spending emergency funds on upgrading and adding additional sump pumps, securing subway entrances, elevator shafts and street level air vents, there are still too many subway stations and lines subject to flooding after major rain storms. Based upon the most recent record storm as a result of Hurricane Ida, NYC

Transit still needs to do more. New York City is the actual owner of our NYC Transit bus and subway system. MTA operates the system based upon the 1953 Master Lease and Operating Agreement between City Hall and the MTA. Consider adding new pump rooms. Improve coordination with the New York City Department of Environmental Protection to insure there is adequate storm water and sewage system capacity adjacent to stations and tracks.

Purchase additional mobile pumps and pump trains. City Hall must provide adequate funding to NYC Department of Environmental Protection so they can provide NYC Transit with the necessary support to provide safe and reliable service that five million pre-COVID-19 riders count on.

Dale Dye And The Importance Of Veterans Day Within the next few weeks, Veterans Day will be upon us. Veterans Day, which falls on Nov. 11, is the day we honor military veterans and those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Originally called “Armistice Day” when it began as the commemoration of the year anniversary of the end of World War I in 1919, Congress declared it a national holiday in 1938 and extended the honor to all who served in the armed forces. In 1954, Armistice Day was renamed “Veterans Day.” The weather will certainly have a nip to the air, which means that it will finally be time to cover the picnic table and remove the canopy that hangs over it. It was our original intention to ask our daughter to stop by for a barbecue, but we realized that the weather might be a bit too raw to sit outdoors. We have been spoiled by the late October warm temperatures, but we’re enjoying those temperatures on borrowed time. Soon, the frost will set in and those vegetables that are still growing in pots will freeze and shrivel. After a quick peek in the yard at the eggplant and peppers that are still producing vegetables, I glanced over at Hubby, who was fully engrossed in the fifth episode of HBO’s war drama non-fictional miniseries, Band of Brothers. Commentaries followed or were a prelude to each episode, which gave one a better understanding and more compassion for the men who fought in World War II.

notable performance to date was his role as Captain Harris in the Oliver Stone classic film Platoon, where he has been quoted with stating, “Dump everything you’ve got left on my POS. I say again, expend all remaining in my perimeter.” The line always gives me chills.

Veterans Day Parade. It was quite heartwarming to watch as surviving veterans marched proudly down the street. The crowd, which consisted mostly of those in vehicles as the road was quite busy, was lively and whooped as each veteran passed by. Some waved tiny flags from their windows as those brave veterans walked through the misty morning. As the parade wrapped up, a few military vehicles pulled up the rear, along with an old fire truck. It was a beautiful way to honor local veterans. This Veterans Day and in the days thereafter, let us make a practice of appreciating those who served bravely. May we remember that Veterans Day is not about sales, shopping and just another day off from work. Veterans Day marks a time to honor those who fought bravely that may speak, write, act and be free. While Veterans Day is not we may be free. It is a day about the fallen, we still honor for those who saw things no human should ever see to be and remember while we honored and cherished.

It is vital for us to remember that those men and women served to keep us free. As it has been said often, “All gave some, but some gave all.” I cannot stress this statement’s importance enough. We cannot desensitize ourselves to the fact that others have died so that we

Jack Hirsch of Albertson took his grandson, Joshua Edelheit, 6, to visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Moving Wall, which stopped in Port Washington the weekend of Oct. 15-17. In his brief time there, Hirsch said, he recognized the names of two people he served with from out of

state. Hirsch wrote, “I served in the US Army from 1968-1971. I was assigned to the 3rd Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division in Vietnam in 1969 and the 8th Infantry Division in Germany (1970-71). I am a life member of the VFW, having most recently served as Post Commander of Albertson Post

5253 (2015-2018). I am also a member of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 82.” The lone official fallen soldier from Albertson on the wall is Army PFC Channing Allen Jr. who was born on Aug. 25, 1942 and died in action on Feb. 16, 1967. —Submitted by Jack Hirsch


The Levittown Chamber of Commerce was joined by local elected officials for a ribbon cutting to celebrate the newly renovated Island Trees Public Library on Oct. 7. After years of waiting and planning, the new library opened its doors on Tuesday, Sept. 7. The library began its construction in March 2020, the same week the pandemic began. In the midst of the pandemic, the library began its incredible journey, transforming from a series of old classrooms into a bright, inviting, 21st-century library that has doubled in size. Michelle Young is the director of the Island Trees Public Library. “Each day, when I enter the new library, I marvel at it—it is a traditional place filled with history and stories and yet it is also a symbol of the future, of innovation and a clear sign that the Island Trees community is not only growing, but thriving. A new library holds the promise of great things to come, not only for those who walk through its doors today, but for all of those who will walk through its doors tomorrow. A great public library is an investment in your community’s future; it is a statement, a declaration if you will, about what you value and hold dear. As the director, I am honored by the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that was given to me—to build the library. As a librarian and a lover of reading, ideas and knowledge, this experience has been nothing less than a dream come true,” Young said. The Syosset Library has various events coming up in the month of November. Check out all the events listed below.

Jericho High School was recently named a Blue Ribbon School – only 325 schools received the honor nationally. The recognition is based on a school’s overall academic performance or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups and a school must be invited to apply for the recognition. “Being selected as a Blue Ribbon school is a tremendous honor for Jericho High School,” Jericho High School Co-Principal David Cohen said. “This prestigious award and national recognition highlights the outstanding work of our students and faculty.” “This year’s cohort of honorees demonstrates what is possible when

committed educators and school leaders create vibrant, welcoming and affirming school cultures where rich teaching and learning can flourish,” U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona said. “I commend this school and all our Blue Ribbon honorees for working to keep students healthy and safe while meeting their academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs. In the face of unprecedented circumstances, you found creative ways to engage, care for, protect and teach our children. Blue Ribbon Schools have so much to offer and can serve as a model for other schools and communities so that we can truly build back better.” —Submitted by Jericho Union Free School District

FALL FUN AT SUMMIT LANE Kindergartners at Summit Lane Elementary School in Levittown celebrated the season with their annual Fall Day on Oct. 22. After picking a pumpkin from the patch, located on the school field behind the kindergarten wing, students spent the morning participating in various fall-themed activities. Kindergarten teachers Corie Cosgrove, Anne Garcia, Maureen McLaughlin and Trish Peyton, rotated through the different classrooms to oversee the four centers. The kindergartners read the poem “Five Little Pumpkins,” created a jack-o-lantern

craft, decorated fall leaves and made their own fall bag to hold their artwork. “The Fall Day allows our students to enjoy a fun day of fall-themed activities while working on their fine motor skills, listening and following directions,” McLaughlin said. The Summit Lane PTA donated the pumpkins for the Fall Day activities and included enough pumpkins for every student in the school to pick their own pumpkin. —Submitted by Levittown Public Schools

EMA inspectors record disaster-caused damage. They do not determine if you’re eligible for FEMA assistance or the amount or type of assistance that FEMA can offer. It is important to respond when they try to contact you. Here’s how you can identify that the person at your door or on the phone is a FEMA inspector. In-person inspection: All FEMA personnel and contractors carry official identification. Applicants should always ask the inspector to show you their official badge, which shows their name and photo. Contract inspectors for FEMA may carry a badge issued by their employer. It will show their name, photo and possibly an ID number. Remote inspection: Inspectors verify they have reached the right applicant by asking for the last four digits of the applicant’s FEMA registration number. The inspector provides the first four digits of the applicant’s registration ID. About inspectors: • They do not request money to complete an inspection and they do not promise that you will receive a grant. • They have your address from your FEMA disaster assistance application, but they may contact you for directions to your property. • They may use phone calls,

text messages and emails— contact information you provided in your FEMA application. • Inspectors may call from FEMA-issued phones or personal cell phones and the area codes could be from somewhere outside New York. • Someone wearing a shirt or jacket that says FEMA does not constitute an official ID. Ask to see their FEMA photo ID badge. • If you are not at home, the inspector will post a letter at the home. If you return home to find an inspector’s letter on your door, do not disregard it.

POLICE REPORT Queens Man Convicted For Burglary Spree On North Shore

Acting Nassau County District Attorney Joyce A. Smith recently announced that a Queens man was convicted for his role in a pattern burglary ring that targeted homes in gated communities on the North Shore of Nassau County. Brayan Castano, 33, of Elmhurst, Queens, was convicted in a jury trial of seven counts of burglary in the second degree, attempted burglary in the second degree and possession of burglar’s tools. Castano was acquitted of one count of burglary in the second degree. The trial began on Sept. 20. The defendant is due back for sentencing Jan. 11, 2022. The case against co-defendant Andres Zapata is pending. Codefendant Oscar Vera pleaded guilty for his role in the pattern burglary ring and is awaiting sentence. Acting DA Smith said that, according to the indictment, between May 2018 and September 2018, Castano and his co-defendants burglarized or attempted to burglarize nine houses in gated communities on the North Shore of Nassau, stealing more than $1 million worth of other people’s property, including money, foreign money,

jewelry and designer handbags. The burglary ring specifically chose gated communities with one entrance into and out of the community. A lookout was stationed at the gate so that if police responded to the home being burglarized the crew member could alert accomplices that cops were nearby. All nine incidents occurred on a Friday or Saturday night and the defendants entered the homes through breaking rear windows or doors. Castano and his co-defendants burglarized homes in Old Westbury, Manhasset, Jericho and Woodbury. The defendant was arrested on Sept. 21, 2018 by members of the Nassau County Police Department.

Approximately an hour later, the same subject returned to Bloomingdales and attempted to make another purchase. Halfway through the transaction, the subject left the store and was located by responding officers. As officers attempted to stop the subject, he fled in a white 2020 Chrysler van towards Old Country Road. The subject was stuck in traffic and exited his vehicle and fled on foot. After a brief foot pursuit, 36-year-old defendant Lameek Dean was placed into custody without further incident. The defendant suffered an injury to his head while he was running and prior to police contact. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment. Defendant Chenelle Overstreet, 38, was also located in the passenger seat of the Chrysler van. She was placed into custody without further incident. A further investigation determined she was in possession of the victim’s identification card and a clear plastic bag containing a white powdery substance believed to be MDMA. Dean has been charged with second-degree forgery, fourth-degree grand larceny, five counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and second-degree identity theft. Overstreet has been charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Dean was arraigned when medically practical.

residential use of any kind or capacity. Section 1. Legislative Findings and Intent. The Board of Trustees (the “Board”) of the Village of Baxter Estates (the “Village”), in adopting Local Law No. 1 of 2021 (the “Temporary Moratorium”), found that A. Economic conditions in recent years have adversely impacted the viability of local businesses catering to the local community, evidenced by a consistent presence of vacant storefronts in the Business A Zoning District of the Village, as well as in the commercial districts in the surrounding community of which the Village is a part. The difficulties experienced by local businesses in the Village and surrounding community pre-date the COVID-19 pandemic’s onset in March 2020, but have been compounded by the pandemic’s economic impacts. B. Recently, several owners of parcels of real property in Business A District have expressed an interest in developing their properties for multi-residential use, without any commercial or business use, apparently reflecting the sense of the property owners that commercial and business uses may not offer a reasonable return on their investments in property in the Business A District. C. The Board notes that, in addition to the 23 enumerated commercial, business or other non-residential permitted uses in the Business A District, under Village Code Section 175-21 of Chapter 175, “Zoning,” of the Village Code (the “Zoning Code”), permitted uses presently also include a single-family or two family detached dwelling, or a multiple dwelling, in each case satisfying the zoning code provisions applicable under Article III, “Residence F Districts,” of the Zoning Code. D. The Board notes that the vast majority of properties in the Business A District of the Village along the Village’s primary commercial district, abutting Main Street, Port Washington, contain (or most recently contained) commercial or business uses, some of which also contain some residential use. E. The Board notes that the provisions of Article IV of the Zoning Code have not been modified or amended in more than 2 decades, and that the provisions applicable to residential development in the Business A District, contained in Article III of the Zoning Code and made applicable by cross-reference to residential development in the Business A District, have not been meaningfully re-


viewed in many decades. F. The Superintendent of Buildings has advised the Board that it appears that significant zoning variances would be required for possible residential development projects in the Village’s Business A District that have been the subject of recent informal submissions to the Village. The Board notes that most residential development in the Business A District would likely not satisfy relevant restrictions contained in Article III, in light of the size and contours of existing parcels, as improved, in the Business A District. G. The Board finds that the best interests, health, safety and welfare of the Village residents and property owners will be promoted through a study and evaluation of the Village Zoning Code provisions applicable to residential development in the Business A District before any new proposed development comprised partly or entirely of residential uses in the Business A District is processed, reviewed or considered by the appropriate Village Boards, departments and officials. H. The purpose of such study and evaluation will be to enable the Board to explore whether existing regulation of such uses is appropriate to permit property owners to develop, own and operate properties in a reasonable and cost-effective manner, while protecting the health, safety and welfare of all Village residents and property owners, in light of current conditions in the Village and surrounding communities. I. For the foregoing reasons, the Board determines that the best interests, health, safety and welfare of the Village, its residents and its property owners are served by the establishment of a moratorium for a period of six (6) months on (i) the development of all parcels of real property in Business A District for any residential use, in whole or in part, and (ii) the review, processing, consideration and determination as to any submissions or applications of any kind relating thereto, by or on behalf of any owner of property within the Business A District, to the Village, or any Board, department, officer or official of the Village. Since enactment of the Temporary Moratorium, the Board has met with and retained land use and planning consultants, who have advised the Board that they are continuing with their study in preparation for a report and recommendations to address with the Board, which should be available to the Board and the public prior to November of this year. In order to enable that study and report to



be completed, presented and considered, and to enable the Board to consider same, and, if the Board so determines, to prepare and adopt amendments to its Zoning Code in response thereto, the Board finds that the best interests of the Village are served by extending the Temporary Moratorium through June 30, 2022. Section 2. Scope of Moratorium. Except as provided in Sections 3 and 4 below, during the period from and after the effective date of this law until June 30, 2022: A. No new building or other structure shall be constructed, and no existing building or other structure shall be altered, extended or expanded, on any parcel of real property within any Business A District of the Village for any residential use of any kind or capacity, whether in whole or in part. B. No building permits shall be issued for any new building or other structure, or for the alteration, extension or expansion of any existing building or other structure, on any parcel of real property within any Business A District of the Village for any residential use of any kind or capacity, whether in whole or in part. C. No new application shall be accepted, and no pending application shall be processed by the Village, or by any Board, department, official or officer of the Village, with respect to any new building or other structure, or with respect to any existing building or other structure, on any parcel of real property within any Business A District of the Village for any residential use of any kind or capacity, whether in whole or in part. Section 3. Exceptions. A. This moratorium shall not apply to the acceptance or processing of applications, the issuance of building permits, or any construction which relates only to the alteration, repair, replacement, or maintenance of existing buildings and other structures, so long as the proposed work that is the subject thereof complies in all respects with the Village Zoning Code. B. This moratorium shall not apply to any municipal use on property which is owned by either a municipality or a special district of a municipality. Section 4. Variances. In the event of unnecessary hardship, an application for relief from this local law may be made to the Village’s Zoning Board of Appeals pursuant to the provisions of Village Law §7-712-b(2) for a “use variance.” Section 5. Effective Date. This local law shall take effect immediately upon filing with the Secretary of State. Dated: Port Washington, New York October 6, 2021 By Order of the Board of Trustees of the Village of Baxter Estates

ARIES (March 21-April 19). While there are luxuries you wish you could afford, the truth is, you most appreciate the bounty you already have. In fact, with a little planning, you could fill your days with your favorite simple luxuries. This week, you’ll be constantly thinking of how you can set yourself up for maximum enjoyment.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). One of the kindest things you can do for yourself is to tell everyone, with words and actions, “I’m busy and I don’t want to be interrupted.” It has been a while since you could do what you wanted to do for an extended period without reporting to anyone or being on the hook to solve their problems. Make it happen.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are worthy of connection even when you don’t feel particularly attractive or deserving. Feelings can lie. Try not to let all that striving for perfection you do keep you from experiencing the love and appreciation around you. It’s there whether you notice it or not. You’re loved just as you are. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your intensity is a gift that sometimes occurs to you as a curse. This much energy is difficult to manage, but you’re constantly gaining skill in the matter. This enormous need inside you can occur as a void when in fact it is an entity -- a possession along the lines of a vacuum or magnet, pulling in the vibrance of life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A good magician does not repeat tricks to the same crowd in the same show. A good comedian does not say a joke more than once. And you should not have to echo yourself either. Though you will be asked to perform like a circus seal this week, this will not reduce your artistry if you stay in charge of your act. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You could be happier, but adding new elements is not the way. So, you’re relieved of the duty to wish, grasp, propose or ask. This week, the way to greater joy will be very easy because it is a process of subtraction. Say goodbye to clutter and the superfluous. Simplify down to the most fulfilling things you already have.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re all about efficiency. You’ll design your route to avoid backtracking. You’ll make your points in an email instead of calling a meeting. You’ll opt for text over a phone call. But the biggest timesaver of all is simply being clear and upfront about what you want. Actually getting it will still entail an exciting dance. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Motivation ebbs and flows -- a test. Push through the slump and you’ll show your motivation who is boss. Once you’re in motion, energy will build as you go. Soon, fickle feelings will be irrelevant to your process. You’ll get rooted in something deeper, and you’ll work when you tell yourself to work. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Everyone has flaws. Your flaws, if you can accept them, pave the pathway to love. If you are afraid of being revealed in some way, consider bringing it into the light. You are not alone in your fears or quirks. By speaking them, you become impervious to isolation caused by secrets and silence.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The cost of a bigger perspective is giving up your footing in the current dynamic. You’ll have to decide which game you want to play and at what level you should play it. Unfortunately, you can’t have it all; you’ll have to choose. There are benefits to each side. So, what’s at stake? Is it worth making a change?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s better to have hopes delivered on than be imposed on by an unexpected circumstance you don’t know what to do with, even if the situation would be categorized by most people as favorable. The surprise of the week will not be fully unforeseen, which is what makes it all the more delightful. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Everyone feels vulnerable at some time. Most people feel a degree of vulnerability every day. So the question is not whether or not you feel vulnerable; it is whether you consider your vulnerability to be a liability. Could you just accept it? If so, you’re also accepting a connection with others in similar straits.


You feel worthy of goodness, though you still do more work than the others. It’s so natural to you to stay busy, and you love what you learn as you apply yourself to new challenges. You’ll love what happens when someone all but forces you to slow down and participate in novelty, adventure and social whims. You’ll save up in early 2022 and invest well in April. A skill you pick up will be your ticket into a tightknit group -perhaps one you previously didn’t know existed. COPYRIGHT 2021 CREATORS.COM

Melissa Etheridge’s Favorite Chiefs BY DAVE GIL DE RUBIO


idwest to the core, Melissa Etheridge is someone whose love for music is almost equaled by her devotion to football. In the case of the National Football League, her ride-ordie is the Kansas City Chiefs. Her fanaticism led her to create a 2020 song “The Chiefs Are Going to the Superbowl” which contains the nifty couplet, “Now if there’s anything I love as much as California weed, it’s Tyreek, Kelce Frank and Chris, Honey Badger and Andy Reid.” And while she got her heart broken by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a 31-9 route at Super Bowl LV (“Wasn’t that one of those games where you are just not well after watching that? You can lose, but damn. After playing so well for the year. I think it made them hungry again. Jesus—Tom Brady. I can’t.”), Etheridge was over the moon when Kansas City hoisted the Lombardi Trophy at the conclusion of Super Bowl LIV the prior year after the rival San Francisco 49ers went down to a 31-20 defeat. Currently touring behind One Way Out, a project consisting of seven songs she penned in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Etheridge is thrilled to be out pounding the pavement behind her sixteenth studio album, with tracks originally recorded back Melissa Etheridge (Photo by Lauren Dukoff) in 2013. “I loved finding these older songs that I hadn’t released,” she explained. “Songs about stuff that I wouldn’t write now because I’m not feeling sexuVisit to read more ally frustrated. But it’s fun to sing those songs. It’s like finding a treasure and seeing that I can do this this project, Chiefs Kingdom and the trio of Kansas City players that are near and dear to this again—rock and hit you in the teeth and while it’s truthful, I don’t have to have gone through it now.” Kansan’s heart.




Top 10 Heartland Rockers The crossroads of folk, country music and ‘60s garage rock, heartland rock is a sub-genre that eventually got absorbed by Americana. And while it geographically suggests an artist from the Midwest, the following list demonstrates that’s not always the case. Bruce Springsteen (New Jersey) Bob Seger (Michigan) John Mellencamp (Indiana) John Fogerty (California) Tom Petty (Florida) Lucinda Williams (Louisiana) Steve Earle (Texas) John Hiatt (Indiana) Joe Grushecky (Pennsylvania) Bryan Adams (Ontario, Canada) —Dave Gil de Rubio
