A Stand-Up Guy

Sebastian Maniscalco stays hungry for success by anthony murray amurray@antonmediagroup.com


ntroduced to comedy as a kid by watching Johnny Carson with his father, stand-up comedian Sebastian Maniscalco knew that standing in front of a crowd of people and making them laugh was exactly what he wanted to do in life. “I always wanted to be a comedian ever since I was in second grade,” said Maniscalco. “I told my second-grade teacher that’s what I wanted to do during career day. I always loved stand-up comedy and always loved getting in front of an audience and making them laugh. It was always

in the back of my head. I just didn’t know how, when or where to do it.” Growing up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, the entertainment business seemed far away to Maniscalco. After graduating from college, he moved to Los Angeles when he was 24 to pursue a career in stand-up comedy. “That’s how it all began and it was a long road,” explained Maniscalco. “It was 20 years ago that I did it and now I’m starting to really reap the rewards of the work I put in.” And reaping those rewards is exactly what Maniscalco is doing. As part of his nationwide Stay Hungry tour, Maniscalco sold out three shows at

Madison Square Garden and recently announced a fourth show that is set for Jan. 20. “My act is always evolving as I live life,” said Maniscalco. “I inject that life experience into my act. Having a baby and being a new parent is always a good topic for comedy. My act has always been observational along with poking fun of my family and how I grew up. That’s what I see people resonating towards, which is the family stuff. You have to be Italian to get it, but growing up with this old world father and the relationship that my father and I have is always good for stand-up, as well as my wife and I and the different backgrounds we

come from.” Last year, Maniscalco also added author to his resume, after publishing his book Stay Hungry, which talks about the last 20 years of his life. “It was difficult,” he said. “I never thought I’d write a book. I always thought books were reserved for people with amazing life stories of perseverance and whatever. I just felt like no one really wanted to hear my story. It was difficult to say the least, but in the end it was very rewarding in the sense that a lot of people took it as an inspirational kind of story and to never give up on your dreams.”

SebaStian from page 3a Not only has he sold out Madison Square Garden, Maniscalco also sold out five shows at Radio City Music Hall for his Netflix special Stay Hungry, which premieres on Jan. 15. “It was my first original Netflix special,” said Maniscalco. “Netflix is the mother of all stand-up comedy right now. There’s a premium channel when it comes to watching stand-up. I shot it in Radio City Music Hall, which was fantastic to me, and New York has always been a great market; even though I’m not from there, it’s always been a great market for me as far as people coming out to see a show.” According to Maniscalco, he’s flying underneath the radar, despite his influx of fans and hopes that his Netflix special will reach people from around the world. “I have a lot of fans, but it’s not mainstream. A lot of people that are in the mainstream might not even know who I am, which is fine by me,” said Maniscalco. “I made my bones just on stand-up comedy alone. I think Netflix will definitely expose my comedy to people who probably don’t know who I am. There’s room for growth, which is exciting.” During his stand-up act on stage, Maniscalco draws influences from

Two Sides Of Aaron Neville by DaVE GIL DE rubIo dgiLderuBio@antonmediagroup.com

he said. “One song talks about my roots, ‘Stompin’ Ground.’ It names a lot of real people that were in my life at different points in time. Another one, ‘Orchid In The Storm,’ was inspired by my wife, Sarah; she’s been my orchid in a storm, and still is. Another song is ‘Heaven,’ from a poem I wrote a while



The Neville Brothers



ention the name Aaron Neville and most fans will instantly think of the string of falsetto-soaked ballads he’s had hits with over the years dating back to his 1966 hit “Tell It Like It Is.” But with his most recent outing, 2016’s Apache, the septuagenarian vocalist has plugged himself into the funkier sound that defined his former life as front man for the now defunct Neville Brothers. Normally a song interpreter, Neville joined forces with retro-soul producers Eric Krasno (guitarist for Soulive and Lettuce) and Dave Gutter (frontman for the Rustic Overtones) to co-write nearly all the songs on this project, making it only the second time in his 57-year recording career that the New Orleans native has gone down this path. Neville had no shortage of cherished memories to draw from in his richly lived life. “It brought out another side of me; people were used to me doing a lot of ballads, but this is more gritty, and some of it has the New Orleans feel,”

back. My inspirations come from real things in life, and I have many more where these came from.” Opening cut “Be Your Man” sets the tone with an insistent tempo, gnarly wah-wah guitar and punchy horn lines that make it sound like a lost outtake from the Superfly soundtrack. From here, Neville manages to wrangle everything from organ-goosed New Orleans struts reminiscent of Neville Brother Art’s legendary crew The Meters (a slinky “Stompin’ Ground”) and pure gospel-infused testifying (an ever-soulful “Heaven”) to a samba-ish, Sam Cooke ode to his wife (an endearing “Sarah Ann”) to the kind of flat-out funk that Daptone Records has been effectively resurrecting for the past couple of decades (the in-the-pocket jam “Hard to Believe”). Wrapping it all up in a perfect bow is the closing medley of traditional nuggets “Down By the Riverside/When the Saints Go Marching In.” Neville’s solo career is fully front and center given the fact that The Neville Brothers broke up in 2012, briefly reuniting in New Orleans for a 2015 farewell concert. The death of sibling Charles from pancreatic cancer back in April has sealed off this chapter even more for the younger Neville. That said, he looks back fondly at a simple childhood centered on street corner harmonizing and the eventual decision to launch The Neville Brothers with his siblings in the mid-1970s. Along the way, the inveterate music lover got to meet a number of his heroes. “[I remember] hearing Clyde McPhatter sing ‘The Bells of St. Mary.’ That was a doo-wop Christmas song.

The late Clyde McPhatter was a major influence on Aaron Neville Then there was Sonny Til and the Orioles and Pookie Hudson and the Spaniels and The Flamingos with ‘I’ll Be Home’ and ‘A Kiss From Your Lips’ and the Clovers ‘Ting a Ling,’ ‘Blue Velvet’ and ‘Devil or Angel.’ There was a smorgasbord [of songs]. It was like ice cream and cake together with all those harmonies. Back in those days, the vocals were the synthesizers,” he recalled. “[As for The Neville Brothers], it was a great era of history for us. We got started singing with my uncle, Big Chief Jolly in The Wild Tchoupitoulas, back in 1976. Up until then, we’d perform together in different groups, but never all together until we decided to form The Neville Brothers. [It all evovled from how] we’d always sit around the projects because everybody wanted to sing like Pookie. He was so smooth. I got to know him and Curtis Mayfield and those were some special times in my life. I got to meet [Pookie] before he died. He was staying in the D.C. area, and I called him up on stage to sing with me.” For this particular tour, Neville is changing gears from his normal quintet to a more intimate experience provided by himself and keyboard player Michael Goods. Irregardless of that fact, the funky crooner promises to deliver big for attendees. “Fans can expect a fantastic show and they can expect to laugh, cry and cheer—all of that.” The Aaron Neville Duo will be appearing on Jan. 11 at Landmark on Main Street, 223 Main St., Port Washington.

Fave Vocalists

Aaron Neville

(Photo by Sarah A. Friedman)

Aaron Neville may still possess the brawny build of the guy who used to work the New Orleans docks, but the moment the man opens his mouth, you get an idea of what it’s like to hear angels sing. Lush and delicate, Neville’s vocals are facile enough to go from pumping falsetto runs into ballads to digging into vintage Crescent City funk. In addition to hearing strains of the doo-wop sounds he grew up loving, those tremendous pipes also reflect the influence of a number of greats, including Sam Cooke, Curtis Mayfield and Little Jimmy Scott. The following are the ones who resonate most for this gentle giant who’ll be celebrating his 78th birthday on Jan. 24, 2019.

Art Neville (Dec. 17, 1937-present)

“He was my idol and I always looked up to him. He was always able to hit notes that it seemed like no one else could sing.”

James “Pookie” Hudson of The Spaniels (June 11, 1934-Jan. 16, 2007)

“We’d always sit around the projects because everybody wanted to sing like Pookie. He was so smooth. I got to know him and Curtis Mayfield and those were some special times in my life. I got to meet him before he died. He was staying in the D.C. area, and I called him up on stage to sing with me.”

Nat “King” Cole (March 17, 1919-Feb. 15, 1965)

“Nat ‘King’ Cole was my mother and father’s favorite singer, so his music was always being played around the house. I remember going around and singing songs of his like ‘Mona Lisa’ all the time.” — Dave Gil de Rubio

Preaching The Punk Gospel Author to appear to argue Why The Ramones Matter

by DaVE GIL DE rubIo dgiLderuBio@antonmediagroup.com


he Ramones may have played their last show on Aug. 6, but for fans around the world, the band has lived on long after the last of the four founding members passed away in 2014. For Dr. Donna Gaines, it’s no accident that a group with such limited commercial success would not only go on to define a genre of music, but would have an influence that went far beyond three chords and a rebellious attitude. An international expert on youth violence and culture with a Ph.D. in sociology and a master’s degree in social work, Gaines makes this point throughout last year’s Why the Ramones Matter. Inspired by Pete Hamill’s Why Sinatra Matters, the Ramones book is part of the University of Texas Music Matters series, edited by Gaines’ old friend and Village Voice editor, Evelyn McDonnell. Having been the person assigned by the Voice to cover the band during its 1996 farewell, Gaines wound up growing close with Joey, C.J. and Dee Dee Ramone and not only wrote the liner notes for a number of Rhino Records reissues, but also penned the speech for the Ramones 2002 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame—and their obituaries. The dynamic of going from longtime friend to fan made for some rough sledding when it came time to write the book. “How I feel about them played a major part in all of this. I was writing it and crying and it’s also so personal because you know what they went through and that they didn’t live to see the great glory,” Gaines said. “Maybe Tommy [Ramone] and Johnny [Ramone] did a little bit. But Joey didn’t really get to see what they mean to us now, and that just broke my heart. The other thing that was hard was writing something that everyone didn’t already know. What can I write that’s really new? Maybe there’s nothing I can say that is new, but maybe there is something that I can write from a different perspective that people haven’t considered—like trauma and addiction.” The dysfunction within the band manifested itself through the way guitarist Johnny Ramone abused Joey and Dee Dee, the former grappling with obsessive compulsive disorder and alcoholism, while the latter was bipolar and struggled with drug addiction, eventually succumbing to a heroin

overdose. Looking at the band through a sociological lens, Gaines pointed out in her book that the Ramones were, “... compassionate souls ministering to others through their own brokenness as trauma survivors, outsiders and artists. [They] helped a fledgling generation soothe some of the scar tissue left

behind by the previous generation—the collective shame, trauma, disappointment and sorrow passed down to us through unresolved parental histories of family violence, incest, abandonment, war, addiction, immigration; the social inequities we suffer based on race, ethnicity, class, sex and gender.” It’s a

message that Gaines understood as a fan and hammers home throughout Why the Ramones Matter. “They were talking about being an outsider. They’re talking about hating school or being treated like crap and sniffing glue or Carbona, which most people won’t admit to. They’re talking about psychotherapy as almost being repressive. They’re picking the roses of culture—chicken vindaloo, surfing, hitchhiking and referencing all this incredible music. They just put so much into it and distilled it into the purest form. It was almost alchemical, what they did,” Gaines explained. “Dee Dee described themselves and their fans as the obvious creeps of the neighborhood. I was one of those street kids that you weren’t allowed to hang around with, like they were. They took that, turned it into art and made it into a ministry, where they made a point of including people that felt like outcasts. And I have stories in the book from personal experience from all three. Joey, Dee Dee and C.J. all identified as outcasts or misfits. They used those exact words, and it was a real truth. They’re doing what artists and poets try to do and they were doing it in pop music—aiming to seize the airwaves. It was a cultural revolution in some ways.” Reflecting what she calls the Ramones mission and ministry are the voices she captures of numerous Ramones fans from throughout the world whose narratives reinforce Gaines’ academic observations. “I had written a lot about them already, and I had direct access to insiders, so I interviewed people like [longtime road manager] Monte [Melnick], C.J. [Ramone] and [Joey Ramone sibling] Micky [Leigh]. I was just asking questions to flesh things out,” she said. “But my biggest amount of interviewing was the fans. I was really interested in speaking with all these people who came into my life through journalism who are big Ramones fans. They were all generations and all races, shapes and sizes. They hailed from places like Germany and Idaho to Mexico and Argentina. I even spoke to fans who are part of the Afropunk scene in Brooklyn.” For her Huntington appearance, Gaines will be in conversation with author Bill German. In addition, there’ll be a live performance by The Younge

Smart New Year’s Resolutions You Will Keep

BY JEREMY SKOW editorial@antonmediagroup.com


esearch suggests that close to half of all Americans make some form of New Year’s resolution. Of that half, only eight percent actually achieve them with one third throwing in the towel before the end of January. If you are serious about your commitment this year you may be interested in tips that will help you join these elite few. Studies have shown that your goals will be more likely to succeed if they are S.M.A.R.T. This acronym, first conceived in the early 1980s, stands for specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound. These goals not only define a clear path to success, they include a clear time frame in which to achieve them.


The first step towards achieving your goal is to clearly define what “it” is. You don’t just want to get in shape, you want to be able to do a 10-mile run by June. You don’t just want to overcome your fear of swimming, you want to implement desensitizing techniques a certain number of times per week so that you can enjoy the lake with your friends at camp this summer.


If you can measure your starting point and your goal, you can also

track your progress along the way. These tracking measurements can be both a great source of motivation for you and a way to help you identify any plateaus you may have to work through.


Trying to make a major change too quickly can impede upon your daily routine so much that it feels like it has taken over your life. It may end up requiring great sacrifices not only from you but from your family as well. Don’t take on too many goals at

Clock Repair Expert repair services for wall, mantle, Atmos and cuckoo clocks.

one time if you plan to succeed at any of them. Turn colossal changes into smaller incremental goals. If you focus on losing just 2 lbs per week you’ll be down 50 lbs by the summer.


Are you making this resolution for the right reasons? Many resolutions fail because they are not the right resolution. Are you trying to change for yourself or because someone has made you feel like you need to change? If you try to change because of a degree of self-loathing, remorse or sudden obsession in the heat of a moment, your resolution is not likely to hold for very long. If your process involves considering what is really good for your life and working to surround yourself with people who can support your change, you are much more likely to succeed.

You must allow yourself enough time to reach your goal. In addition, having an end date gives you a deadline and creates a sense of urgency. When you formulate your resolution be sure to set up a timetable with

numerous smaller intermediate goals along the way. If your first attempt fails, don’t beat yourself up. Learn from it and try again. If you sneak a cigarette, miss a walk or shout at the kids one morning make a note of the triggers that caused this set back and learn a lesson from them. That is one of the basic principles of cognitive behavioral therapy. If you know that alcohol makes you crave cigarettes and oversleep the next day cut back on it. If you know the morning rush before school makes you shout then get up earlier or prepare things the night before to make it easier on you. Perseverance is the key to success. Thomas Edison had once stated, “I haven’t failed. I just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” Resolutions are about creating new habits. Plan on changing the rest of your life and not just the first few months of the new year. Jeremy Skow, LMHC, MBA maintains a private practice in Garden City, NY.

New Law Aims To Strengthen Access To Mental Health Care

hanks to a strong advocacy push by a broad array of consumer and provider representatives of behavioral health services, the Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Parity Report Act was enacted into law by Governor Cuomo on Dec. 21, 2018, as Chapter 455 of the Laws of 2018. The historic new law is a huge victory for North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center and the broader mental health and substance use care community as it will compel insurers to submit key information to the NYS Department of Financial Services (DFS) for analysis and evaluation of compliance with federal and state parity laws, culminating in the publication of a report on the DFS website that will provide much needed accountability and transparency. Until now, existing parity laws, which demand that coverage and treatment for mental health and substance use disorders are on par with the coverage and treatment of physical illnesses, have been widely ignored, putting lives at risk. The failure to enforce parity laws was made clear in January 2018, when North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center released Project Access, a Long Island-wide study on the diffiPARENTHOOD culty or ease in which families were PLUS able to access healthcare for mental illness and addiction.

For dry facial skin, it’s best to follow a good routine. Start by washing with warm water, as hot water can cause skin to dry out quicker.

To restore moisture without the use of a cream, try a natural oil, like avocado oil, which is best for dry, irritated and sensitive skin. Avocado oil is also high in vitamin E and omega-3

Time To Supercharge Your New Year The start of the New Year always brings about a sense of invigoration and purpose. The idea of having a clean slate can be just what you need to spark positive change in your life. Although any moment is an opportunity to initiate change, there is a collective energetic shift this time of year that provides clarity and focus for the year ahead. Here are a few strategies to help supercharge your New Year and stick to those resolutions.

Develop A Morning Routine

You don’t always need a New Year to start fresh- every moment is an opportunity to change and improve your lifestyle. Starting your day on the right note can set the precedence for success and healthy choices throughout the day. A healthy morning routine can provide structure throughout the entire year and set you up for success. Try to make


at least one goal that impacts the start of your morning routine. For example, if hydration is important to you in the New Year, make it a priority to drink two glasses of water in the morning before leaving for work. This small accomplishment can provide confidence and encouragement for a healthy day.

Reflect & Connect

Creating goals on the surface is easy, but reflecting and connecting with your

inner purpose and integrity can help create more nourishing goals for the body and soul. Before you start to focus on the future, it’s important to reflect on the past year. What can you learn from and bring into the New Year? Are there certain habits that you want to stop or leave behind from this past year? Reflection can help you find solutions to why previous goals have maybe failed, and what it will take to fuel your inspiration for the year ahead.

Make Concrete Goals

Vague goals often lead to inconsistent results. Your goals for the year should be meaningful, tangible, and concrete. All goals should pose a healthy challenge, but shouldn’t be incredibly far-fetched that they set you up for failure. Start by making one concrete goal for the New Year, and then develop a few

smaller goals that will help you ultimately accomplish that larger goal.

Find Your Why

If you don’t know where you are going or why you are on this journey, your purpose will waiver and ultimately diminish. Take a moment to sit down and truly meditate on the purpose behind your goals for the New Year. Think deeply and discover what matters most to you. Channel this meaningful reason when times get tough.

Visualize Your Best Self

Each and every one of us has a unique journey towards greater health. Remember that there is no one diet fits all approach. Getting out of your comfort zone is crucial to finding your best self. Visualize your healthiest version of you. What does a typical daily routine look like

for that version of yourself? What are the characteristics of your best self? What are the habits that you need to adopt now to get you there? Start implementing these habits slowly but surely to achieve your health goals. Focus on progress, not perfection. Making small, meaningful changes can lead to big results. Embrace the progress and grow from it each and every day. May this year be one of your best years yet.

2018: A Liver Year In Review The year 2018 was an exciting year in liver diseases. It saw much progress to diagnosing, treating and providing improved access to care.

Hepatitis C

There were no new treatments introduced for hepatitis C this previously killer disease is simple to cure in almost all infected patients. Instead, focus has been shifted towards public policies aimed at eliminating hepatitis C and on improving access to its curative, life-saving therapies. New York State become the first state in the nation to set up a Department of Health Hepatitis C Elimination Task Force to develop strategies to diagnose and link to care the many people in the state who are as yet undiagnosed. Barriers to treatment such as patient drug and alcohol screening and limiting which providers can prescribe curative therapies have been removed in New York State.

Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

Initially thought to be a benign

disease, the importance of assessing disease severity is being disseminated to health care providers and patients. While liver biopsy had been the sole modality available to assess for degree of steatosis and fibrosis, readily available blood tests and advanced imaging techniques such as transient elastography and special MRIs are making it easier to rapidly assess and stage this condition. While diet, exercise and weight loss remain the current treatment, 2018 saw several new innovative, oral therapies being used reporting positive results in clinical trials. These results should lead to the first medications being approved by the FDA in early 2020.

Once thought to have a horrible prognosis, survival from primary liver cancer is improving. 2018 saw new chemotherapeutic agents being approved for its treatment which are better tolerated and have improved efficacy. These new agents, in combination with refined radiological therapies and liver transplantation, have made this condition manageable and curable in many patients who previously were not treatment candidates.

Primary sclerosing cholangitis

For the first time, this deadly condition with no adequate approved therapies is seeing several new agents being evaluated for treatment. While it is still early in development, just the fact that there are potential therapies being considered is exciting, groundbreaking and hopefully will bring much needed relief to the many people affected with this condition.

Alcoholic Liver Disease

Here the news is not good. Alcoholic

liver disease is on the rise in the United States, especially among people under the age of 30. The combination of increased alcohol use and advancement in hepatitis C treatments has made liver disease from alcohol the number one indication for liver transplantation in our country. There are no medications to reverse the effects of alcohol on the liver, only abstinence may lead to improvement. For this, we need the health care system to cover alcohol prevention programs to a greater degree and this is not happening.

While 2018 saw progress, there are still certain specific liver diseases where much work needs to be done. Hepatitis B can be suppressed but cure remains elusive and access to suppressive therapies is complicated by high cost. Autoimmune hepatitis has not seen much progress or even clinical studies with new agents making long term steroid and immunosuppressive agents the treatments of choice, despite their potential longterm side effects. For now, I would like to wish everyone a happy and a healthy New Year.

A New Home





Parker Jewish Institute Resident Mary Luniewski Celebrates 101 Year Birthday the loving arms of his beloved wife, and the Luniewski’s raised a family, as many returning veterans did. Julius secured a good job working for Brooklyn Union Gas for the next 42 years. Meanwhile, Luniewski took care of the home while raising her family. She had three daughters and one son, and was blessed with 11 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. In later years, the Luniewski family moved to their first home in Richmond Hill, Queens. Devoted to her Catholic faith, Luniewski became deeply involved with the Holy Child Jesus Church in Richmond Hill. Unfortunately, her beloved husband passed away in 1995. Luniewskiremained steadfastly independent, living alone in her Richmond Hill home, while receiving frequent visits

from her extended family. As it happens with all family matriarchs, the decades took their toll on Luniewski, who came down with pneumonia two years ago. With her loving family coming to her aid, she was brought to the Emergency Room at Long Island Jewish Hospital (LIJ) and admitted there for treatment. After she was stabilized, Luniewski was transitioned to Parker for long term skilled nursing care. “To this day, she frequently plays Scrabble with family visitors and her newfound friends at Parker,” according to her son Richard Luniewski. “Mom also enjoys games of 500 Card Rummy and Rack-O. I remember playing these games with my mother as a youngster.” Luniewski’s pneumonia was cured during her stay at Parker, and she’s remained

there ever since, as she is too frail and her legs too weak for her to live alone at home. Despite her age, Luniewski has undertaken several special projects. She enjoys crocheting Baby Hats for preemies, which are donated to LIJ. She created dozens of colorful Baby Hats up until last year. Many of the long term care residents have become Luniewski’s friends, and she enjoys taking part in the many activities Parker has to offer its patients and residents. Her experience at Parker has been very warm and supportive, according to her son Richard, adding that she looks forward to those special days of quality time with friends, loved ones and grandchildren, who frequently visit the centenarian-plus one. —Submitted by Parker Jewish Institute

Cervical Cancer Awareness Month Nearly 13,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year, but what some may not know if that the disease is preventable with vaccination and appropriate screening (Pap and HPV tests). January marks Cervical Cancer Awareness month, a time to highlight issues related to cervical cancer, HPV disease and the importance of early detection. Regular check ups can help prevent cervical cancer from going unnoticed,

including receiving the HPV vaccination to prevent infection from both high risk HPV types that can lead to cervical cancer and low risk types that cause genital warts. Although it may seem a disease predominantly found in women, the CDC recommends that all boys and girls get the HPV vaccine at the age of 11 or 12 as the vaccine produces a stronger immune response when taken during the preteen years. A test strictly for

women, a Pap test can discover cell changes to the cervix caused by HPV and is recommended for women over 30 along with the HPV vaccine. Each woman should ask her health care provider how often she should be screened and which tests are right for her.

Winter Wellness Tips For The New Year

inter can be challenging both mentally and physically. Days are darker, colder and shorter, and we may be exposed to winter ailments, like the cold and flu. The key to staying healthy and happy throughout the winter 2018 season is to be proactive about health. To help supercharge 2018 wellness, we’ve asked for some health tips from a few experts at the Katz Institute for Women’s Health.


can slow down your metabolism and lead to overeating later in the day. When making new year’s resolutions, make them specific, measurable and write them down to stay accountable. Instead of promising to eat better, make specific goals such as eating a serving of vegetables every night at dinner or substituting diet coke with water or seltzer at lunch. You will likely be more successful.”



“A great way to help ensure “The holidays often result in consistently better sleep is to weight gain for many people try, as much as possible, to due to overconsumption of go to sleep at the same time food and drinks at parties each night, ideally within an and get-togethers.

is one New Year’s resolution that is right for everyone.”


“A new year is here and exercise and movement should become even more of a priority. Engaging in an exercise program that can be done in your house is a great way to stay active when it’s too cold to go outside,” said Spencer Scalzitti, M.S., EP-C,

Exercise Physiologist, Center for Wellness and Integrative Medicine. “And, it doesn’t have to involve buying expensive equipment. Push ups, squats and planks are all good examples of simple movements that can be done anywhere. Also, taking the stairs instead of an elevator and walking over sitting are great ways to stay healthy this winter.”

“Winter can be a tough time of year for many of us. So, it’s important to focus on self-care during the winter months,” said Debbie McElligott, DNP, Nurse Practitioner and Integrative Health and Wellness Coach, Center for Wellness and Integrative Medicine. “Give yourself the gift of relaxation, even if it’s just for 10 minutes a day. Find a quiet spot, turn off the electronics and just breathe —become aware of the inhale and exhale, acknowledge any thoughts without judgment, and refocus on the inhale and exhale.” Find out more about how to optimize your health and well-being throughout the year to come and for a lifetime.

Kids Helping Kids Gives Gift Of Warmth


AC Network received a generous donation of warm coats and winter apparel from Kids Helping Kids, By Kids Way, Inc. These essential items are distributed to children within EAC Network’s Children & Youth programs. Kids Helping Kids is led by Executive Director Bob Eslick, and was founded by his sons Robert A.J. Eslick and Philip M. Eslick in 1997. Their mission is to engage youth in philanthropy and teach the value of helping others. The organization’s 15th annual “Making a Warmth of Difference” winter apparel drive donated new, branded winter coats, jackets, and fleece, that were donated by Kids Helping

Kids to local nonprofits that assist Long Island kids and families in need. “We are truly amazed and thankful for the continued generosity of Bob Eslick and Kids Helping Kids,” said Lance W. Elder, President & CEO, EAC Network. “It’s inspiring to witness how Bob’s efforts impact so many children in need. We are incredibly grateful to partner with him and Kids Helping Kids to offer the lasting gift of warmth.” EAC Network serves children who have been physically abused, are at-risk of exploitation, and are in foster care. Many of these children have little to no belongings and rely on the generous donations of others. —Submitted by EAC Network





From Nassau, With Love Tennis tournament set for Coliseum

BY ANTON MEDIA STAFF editorial@antonmediagroup.com


he eyes of the professional tennis world will once again turn to New York next month as the New York Open returns for a memorable run at the Nassau Coliseum. With a field full of top players in the sport, including the no. 6-ranked player in the world and defending champion, Kevin Anderson, top-ranked American and no. 10-ranked player in the world, John Isner. The ATP Tour’s only United States indoor championship event promises to once again be one of the most-talked about weeks on the New York sports calendar. The 2019 New York Open will be contested at NYCB LIVE—home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum— from Feb. 9 through 17. The full ATP Tour field of 28 singles players and 16 doubles teams will include top-ranked ATP players like Anderson and Isner, 2018 finalist Sam Querrey, as well as ATP Newcomer of the Year, Alex de Minaur, and Long Island native, Noah Rubin (no. 131). On the doubles side, no. 1 ATP-ranked doubles player Mike Bryan is reuniting with his brother Bob, the no. 6-ranked player, bringing the sport’s greatest doubles team to the New York area. Secondranked ATP doubles star, American Jack Sock, will also be in the field, plus de Minaur, who is also playing doubles with the world’s former no. 1 and multiple Grand Slam champion, Lleyton Hewitt. Both Sock and de Minaur will compete in the singles field as well. “The team has done a great job securing several of the world’s top-10 players in singles and doubles and attracting legends who will also play in the main doubles competition,” said Josh Ripple, tournament chairman and co-tournament director of the New York Open. “Quite frankly, there’s nothing

like a major, world-class sporting event in New York, and we think the play on the on-court will surpass what was an exceptional competition in 2018. The New York area tennis community was very supportive when we moved the event here last year from Memphis, and we’re looking forward to presenting even greater value to fans and sponsors in 2019.” This year’s New York Open will kick off in a big way on Saturday, Feb. 9, at 10:30 a.m. when the New York Tennis Expo returns. More than 4,000 fans attended last year’s free mini-tennis festival, which

showcases tennis, sports and recreational exhibitors, sports symposiums, the New York Open Official Draw Ceremony, and a chance for spectators to see first hand the tournament’s signature black courts as well as practice sessions featuring ATP pros. Later in the evening will be the New York Open’s second annual opening night. This year’s edition showcases a new tennis and culinary platform called the Taste of New York Open—a mash-up event of ATP tennis stars and celebrity chef David Burke, a two-time James Beard Foundation

winner as “Best Chef in New York” who will demonstrate his culinary talents alongside co-hosts and Hall of Famers Andy Roddick and Jim Courier. Additionally, Burke will curate immersive VIP culinary experiences for tournament week throughout the venue, including general concessions, as well as hospitality areas. The 6 p.m. Taste of New York Open event will have upwards of 250 tickets available for purchase to the public. Following, Roddick and Courier will take to the black courts to face off in an exhibition match. Two of the most accomplished stars

in American tennis history, Roddick and Courier combined for five Grand Slam titles, 55 ATP Tour singles titles, and nearly $35 million in career earnings during their careers. In addition to the New York Tennis Expo, Opening Night and the Taste of New York Open to start the week, there will be a number of other events. The Wolf Pack Ninja Tour, featuring many of the world’s elite ninjas, will be set up for the entire tournament run in the Exhibition Hall, adjacent to the Coliseum. Other platforms such as College Night Tuesday will celebrate one of the New York area’s top men’s college players playing in the main draw. Jack Lin, of Columbia University won the first annual New York Open Collegiate Wildcard Tournament, and he will now have a berth to play on the black courts with the pros. As part of Wolf Pack Ninja’s involvement at the New York Open, there will be demonstrations, clinics, meet-and-greets and autograph sessions, with nationally-known ninjas. Fans will have the chance to see what Wolf Pack Ninja is all about—including free programming for fans that purchase a tennis ticket. “Between the tennis, the culinary events, and having the Wolf Pack Ninjas on site, the New York Open is going to be a hot ticket this February,” said Peter Lebedevs, co-tournament director of the New York Open. “We’re excited to once again offer fans top-notch tennis, as well as a quality experience.” Tickets for the 2019 New York Open are on sale and can be purchased via either newyorkopen.com/tickets or nycblive.com/events, at the Ticketmaster Box Office at NYCB LIVE, or by calling 800-745-3000.

Though from time to time, you do find yourself wondering how it could possibly pay off. It will pay off, this week, and in interesting ways at that. In fact, you’re now a perfect fit for a certain job. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Do you think a person can have too many hobbies? As long as you’re able to focus on one at a time, and pursue each in a way that feels satisfying, what’s the harm? Besides, curiosity is one of your best qualities. You can’t help that it tends to lead you in unexpected directions. It’s one of the ways you live large. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s not hard for you to do your best. In fact, that’s just naturally what you do. It’s who you are. What’s hard is working at something that you don’t clearly see the purpose in doing. Anything that feels like drudgery needs a deeper investigation as to the “why” of it. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s the work you do within the walls of your own home that will matter most. You won’t be paid for this work in a monetary currency. You won’t be publicly praised for it. You’ll be lucky if your nearest and dearest notice. But this work will bolster you. Random brilliant ideas will come to you while you’re in the flow. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Wishing won’t make it so. But wishing is certainly a start! Try it. You might be surprised what you wish for. Wishing will access a pure part of yourself, or at least a part of you that is, like a child, more focused on acting on natural impulses and appetites than wanting what the world expects you should want. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ve a developed visual sense, and you appreciate the beauty around you when it’s there. When it isn’t -- well, that’s when your talents really emerge. It’s like you just can’t let ugly places happen. You have to do something about it, even something seemingly small. When you smile in an ugly place, it becomes beautiful. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You usually know what you want and don’t have to think twice. But you’ve been burned. You wanted, and got, something that made you unhappy. Now you’re obscuring your desire from yourself, unsure of your own instincts. It’s OK. It happens to everyone. Don’t overanalyze it to death. Get back in the game. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Follow someone, or let someone follow you, and life gets easier. Be like birds, cyclists and race car drivers. Use the science of drafting. Two move forward, one behind the other. The turbulent wake created by the first one lowers the pressure for the second one, whose position eddies the first one. All benefit. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Whatever you do to protect, uplift or shift a person’s feelings, you usually do unconsciously. That is until you make an effort to be more alert to interpersonal dynamics. Such awareness takes emotional work, and can be painful at times, but will also be incredibly illuminating. You’ll be wiser for it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The emotional component of being alive is rarely as described. In polite company, people who despair will say they are “fine” so as not to worry others and people who feel amazing will also say they are “fine” so as not to make others jealous. For the truth, listen past what others say and what you say to yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This week shows you as a reluctant, yet effective, leader. It’s hard to see your own competencies. But others don’t know what you know, and if they follow you, they will gain skills, insights and abilities. They sense this. You don’t have to do anything beyond being yourself, ready and willing to show and tell. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The first decisions of the week will be crucial. They’ll set you on a trajectory. Approach with all the enthusiasm you can muster, even if it’s fake. You need a boost of activation energy to launch you out of the gravity of life as usual. You’ll enter higher realms of greater ease and buoyancy.

Reassessment Complete, Questions Remain

BY ANTON MEDIA STAFF editorial@antonmediagroup.com


assau County Executive Laura Curran and County Assessor David Moog announced last week the tentative assessment values for the 2020-21 tax year for every Nassau County property have been finalized and posted online at www. mynassauproperty.com. The values are a result of the first county-wide reassessment in nearly a decade. “Striving for fairness and accuracy, the Department of Assessment has completed the challenging reassessment process and produced updated market values for every property in Nassau County,” said Curran. “This was a tremendous effort by the hard-working employees at the Department of Assessment and

by our two vendors Standard Valuation Services and Michael Haberman Associates.” In addition to being posted online, Nassau County property owners will receive in the mail by Jan. 31 a Notice of Tentative Assessed Value for the County’s 2020-2021 tentative assessment roll. The notices will contain their property’s full market value, the level of assessment, tentative assessed value and for classes two and four, their transitional assessed value. Notices were mailed out beginning Jan. 7 in the following order: class 1, residential and residential capped; class 2, condos, co-ops and multiple dwellings; class 3, utility; class 4, commercial. The updated valuations included in the notices are a result of the Department of Assessment’s 60-day review


Over the past two months, we listened to all of our property owners’ concerns and appreciated every piece of feedback we received


period, where property owners had the opportunity to review their preliminary new market value, update their property inventory and work with the County’s assessment personnel to identify and account for variables that affect property value. During the 60-day review period, the county’s assessment personnel met

with more than 13,500 property owners to explain the reassessment process, address specific concerns and questions, obtain feedback, address questions about exemptions and adjust property inventory; counseled 1,167 property owners by email; and continued to fine tune the data modeling to account for unique factors that influence property value. As a result of this 60-day review period more than 85,000 values for the 2020-21 tentative assessment roll were decreased from the preliminary new market values listed in the Assessment Disclosure Notices. Of these decreases, 20,000 were for vacant land and 65,000 were a result of various adjustment factors including neighborhood, section, block, topography, inventory adjustments and other taxpayer inputs.

The number of Enhanced Star applications for senior citizens doubled and new senior citizen applications increased by 45 percent. The posting of the assessment roll begins the challenge period for property owners to grieve their assessed value and the Notices of Tentative Assessed Value include directions on how to challenge assessments. Curran assures the public that they will always have the right to grieve but they should not have to do so to obtain a correct assessment. Curran encourages residents with additional questions or in need of further clarification to make an appointment at one of the satellite offices which will remain open until Jan. 31. Residents can make their appointments at www. AsktheCountyAssessor.com.



GOSPeL from page 8a Rochelles, a pop-punk trio who mix original material with a healthy dose of Ramones covers. Attendees can expect plenty of passion and vigor in making the case for the boys from Forest Hills. “What [people] can expect is for me to argue the case that the Ramones matter and to provide evidence,” Gaines said. “To express anger and outrage at how they couldn’t get airplay and to tease out their message of empowerment. I have my agenda of youth and having young

people hear that it’s okay to be who you are. And [the Ramones] work ethic and that we can’t just dream about [making your dreams come true] by smoking pot and going to sleep. You have to go out there and do it.” Rightfully proud of the sweat equity she put into this treatise that is both a weighty and breezy read, Gaines sees herself as an acolyte in a leather jacket spreading the Ramones gospel of three-minute songs and no more than three words that say everything in the title. “Once you’re involved in the Ramones world/empire, you’re part of it for your life,” she said. “It took a lifetime of preparation. Part of what I wanted to do with myself with the book was to put down on paper that it was so much more than the music, the personalities and the drama. And that this isn’t a biography—it’s an American sociologist looking at this and saying this is why this [all] matters.” Dr. Donna Gaines will be appearing on Jan. 13 at the next Long Island LitFest event, which will be held at Cinema Arts Centre, 423 Park Ave., Huntington. For more information, visit www.longislandlitfest.com or www.cinemaartscentre.org or call 631-423-7610.

COP Paneer

Half Saag Paneer, half Chicken Tikka

Currying Flavor Curry On Pizza puts an Indian spin on pizza

by StEVE moSCo SmoSco@antonmediagroup.com


here are some who would have you believe that pizza is sacred—that any alterations made to the traditional format is a food crime at best and a sacrilegious abomination at worst. Slapping that notion in the face is Curry On Pizza, a curious eatery that dares to deliver pizza loaded with Indian ingredients. Opened earlier this year by owner and restaurateur Vidhu Mun literally across the street from Nassau County in Bellerose, Queens, Curry On Pizza (COP) combines the dynamic spice array found in Indian cuisine with the crust and cheese pizza composition we all know and love. With pizzas running the gamut from butter paneer to gobhi masala to chicken tikka and tandoori chicken, it is truly Indianstyle pizza rather than merely pizza

Garlic Sticks with curry sprinkled on top. “Everybody loves pizza and the love of Indian food has grown and keeps growing, so I wanted to combine it and make something new and different,” said Mun, who said he hopes to franchise the idea for Curry On Pizza in the very near future. “It’s a twist on pizza.” That twist begins with the very base

of pizza—the crust, which is lighter and crispier than traditional dense pizza crust, with pleasantly puffy pockets of air. That’s when things get really interesting—and fragrant—as ingredients vary depending upon which Indian dish is being showcased on the pie. The Chicken Tikka pizza features creamy garlic sauce, mozzarella cheese, diced tomatoes, red

onion, chicken tikka, scallions and fresh cilantro; while the Saag Paneer pizza displays a richly green saag sauce with spinach, paneer cheese, red onion, green chilies, ginger and garlic. Dhum aloo brings marinara sauce into the fray, combining it with mozzarella cheese and potatoes marinated in a curry-forward sauce. One of the most popular pizzas on

Chicken 65


Dhum Aloo the menu also happens to be the owner’s favorite, Chicken 65, which takes its name from the legendary southern India dish which has an ingredient list that includes red chili powder, ginger garlic, turmeric, cumin, curry, green chilies and more. The Chicken 65 pizza starts with that airy crust and mozzarella cheese, along with green bell peppers, red onion, fresh cilantro and 65-style sauce and deep-fried chicken. Definitely the spiciest pizza on the menu, Chicken 65 features a heat that builds as you eat it. At first, the spice level is deceptively tame, but before long brow sweat begins to accumulate as the incredible flavor and the endorphins released by your brain force you to keep eating, despite the heat. Less spicy, but just as flavorful is the COP Veggie Pizza. Loaded with mushrooms, green bell peppers, olives, red onion, jalapeños, diced tomatoes, garlic, ginger and fresh cilantro, it is finished with mozzarella

cheese and COP’s special curry sauce. The highlight of the veggie pie is the big, “meaty” mushrooms that provide a grounding earthiness amid the dizzying array of fragrant spices. The pizzas are available in four sizes: 10-inch “small,” 12-inch “medium,” 14-inch “large, and 18-inch “extra-large.” Customers are also encouraged to build their own

pies from an array of meat and veggie toppings. COP also boasts more Americanized versions of pizza, like the All Meat Combo loaded with marinara, mozzarella, ham, salami, pepperoni, chorizo, sausage and ground beef; the Hawaiian, with marinara, mozzarella, ham and pineapple; along with other pizzas like Sizzlin’ Bacon and Garlic Chicken. Beyond pizza, COP also brings chicken wings into the world of Indian spices. First, the eatery offers wings with the usual sauces—spicy garlic, teriyaki, BBQ, buffalo, etc.—but it is the two Indian preparations that are of the must-try variety, sending a spark to the senses and convincing the eater that wings should have always had an Indian option. The Tandoori wings are marinated in classic tandoori spices, such as paprika, turmeric, garlic, nutmeg, cayenne, ginger, coriander and garam masala, for a finished product that

is immediately distinct and spicy. Meanwhile, the COP Signature Wings are marinated in a secret, proprietary blend of spices that brings a touch more heat than the Tandoori Wings. Don’t skip the side orders, particularly the masala fries and the garlic sticks. There’s also potato wedges, onion rings, zucchini sticks and popcorn shrimp, along with a few salad options and desserts like cheesecake, chocolate lava cake and gulab jamun, a spongy sweet treat straight from India. And to quell the heat, there are mango lassis available. Curry On Pizza is the Indian twist on pizza we didn’t know we needed. It’s available for dine-in, take-out or delivery and can be found on Seamless and Grub Hub. To inquire about franchising, contact Vidhu Mun at 518-488-9002 or email him at vidhucurryonpizza@gmail.com. Curry On Pizza, 248-49 Jamaica Ave., Bellerose, 929-405-1000, www. thecurryonpizza.com.

Creating The Championship by ChrIStoPhEr bIrSnEr cBirSner@antonmediagroup.com


ong Island will host some major sports events over the course of 2019, but none bigger than the PGA Championship at Bethpage State Park. Since it was announced that the Farmingdale golf course would be hosting the major, the PGA and Long Island volunteers have been working tirelessly to get the location ready before the tournament tees off on May 16. Scott Reid, the director of the PGA Championship, has been leading the effort to make sure everything is set for a wonderful event. “I’ve ran a few different PGA Tour tournaments before,” said Reid. “A lot of the important facets of this event are the same but they are on a much grander scale. It’s kind of like a four or five time multiple with a major championship verses a regular tour event.” Preparation for the event began with the PGA office headquarters opening up in a parking lot outside the clubhouse in July. They held a ceremony that brought Nassau County Executive Laura Curran and Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino out to cut the ribbon to the facility. Since then, Reid has been working with Bethpage Black to set up other facilities for the tournament while putting the word out for people to buy tickets to the event. “We had an advertising campaign all summer as we had our preregistration for tickets,” said Reid. “That really started to garner a lot of attention. We had multiple promos air during this past year’s PGA Championship. Places like Citi Field showed our advertisments during that time. As soon as that championship was over, all eyes turned to us, so the word is spreading pretty organically. People think it’s a ways away but it’s coming quickly.” As for the work at Bethpage Black, Reid and his team have been working on the grounds for the last six months getting everything prepared. In October, the organizers for the tournament hosted an event at the

“We built two hospitality tents on site for those who bought these packages,” said Reid. “At the party, they met with some of vendors that help make it come together, like the decor vendor or the catering company. They got to try the food and order merchandise.” Reid and his team have spent the last few months figuring out where vendors and seating areas would go for the general public. These locations would be approved by the PGA and construction will begin sometime in February after the harshness of the winter passes by. “The weather is going to be on our mind when we start that process,” said Reid. “Last year, we had those random spurts of snow in March and that’s around when we are going to be in the middle of our build. It’s not an obstacle yet, but it’s certainly on our mind.” As for prep ahead of time, gravel will be laid out at certain compounds in the park for vendors to set up their stations. They will also be creating a bus terminal on one of the holes of the other golf courses at Bethpage State Park to store all the buses that come from around the Island picking people up for the tournament. While parking has been determined for the event, the PGA will be encouraging those to take the LIRR, which has partnered with them to bring patrons to the event. “It’s going to be extremely important for the area,” said Reid. “We’ve proven over the years that the PGA Championship has brought $100 million plus to the local communities that hosted the event. We fully anticipate continuing that tradition. It’s huge for Nassau County, Long Island and the state of New York. The people of Bethpage Black have been great. They’ve been really, really good to work with. They’re all excited to bring the PGA Championship to Long Island. ” For more information and to purchase tickets to the 101st PGA Championship, which includes practice and ground packages, visit www.pga.com/events/pga championship.com.
