Nassau Rent Guidelines Board Approve Price Increases As Renters Rally For Improvements JANET BURNS


n Thursday, June 23, the Nassau Rent Guidelines Board (RGB) voted to allow 2 percent rent increases for one-year leases and 3.5 perfect increases for two-year leases per lease period, respectively, despite push-back from local housing advocates. Immediately following the vote, New York Communities for Change, the Long Island Region of the New York State Poor People’s Campaign and the Long Island Progressive Coalition released the following joint statement: “It is unconscionable that amid an affordable housing crisis, a pandemic and the growing prospect of an economic recession the Nassau County Rent Guidelines Board would vote to hike rent on families already living paycheck-to-paycheck. Let’s be clear, this is an attack on working families, and Black and Brown community members living on this incredibly segregated island will be most impacted by the Board’s disastrous decision. The folks who voted for this rent increase need to answer for why they chose to put landlords’ profits over peoples’ lives. Our message to landlords: if you’re struggling – but you’re likely doing just fine – go out and get multiple jobs like the rest of us, instead of squeezing every cent possible out of your tenants.” Ahead of the Board’s decision to approve rent increases for one- and two-year leases beginning on or between October 1, 2022, and September 30, 2023, Nassau residents rallied at Hempstead Town Hall against the expected approval of higher allowable rental increases while a pre-vote informational and testimonal RGB session was held in Hempstead on June 21. “There is no middle class,” said Nia Adams to assembled renters, housing advocates, and press. “It is the wealthy against the rest of us.” “People have lost their jobs [and all living costs] have gone up,” said Thern Shivers, a local resident and member of New York Communities for Change. “And buildings are still falling apart. No maintenance is being done.”

Renters and housing advocates gathered at Hempstead Town Hall for Nassau County’s Rent Guidelines Board meeting on June 21, 2022 ahead of a vote on proposed rule changes scheduled for June 23, 2022. (Courtesy Long Island Progressive Coalition via Facebook)

Shivers was also one of several speakers at a rally the week before at 100 Terrace Avenue in Hempstead, where she herself resides. Following a shooting that left one 19-year-old man dead and three others wounded, tenants rallied outside to building to protest the fact the two side doors of the large residential building are kept locked for safety reasons per Hempstead Police and the landlord’s reasoning. Shivers and her fellow residents gathered outside the building with New York Communities for change while a memorial for the slain 19-year-old was also being held nearby, with some residents coming and going between the two. They argued that keeping the doors locked actually prevents residents from getting safely into the building, whether because they’re escaping gunfire or merely have mobility issues. Shivers urged those present, “Tell the mayor of the village and Detective Murphy: We will not be criminalized. You need to come and open these doors.” With energy, food, and other essential costs on the rise, many tenants in Nassau as well as statewide are waiting anxiously to see what landlords will do as rents, and allowable rent increases, creep back up in many places. Ever since New York State’s

eviction moratorium expired in January, evictions have been proceeding through state housing courts, albeit sometimes at a slower pace. As Rachel M. Cohen noted in an article on housing insecurity and eviction for Vox this June, “Nearly 1 million people are evicted in the US each year, mostly for nonpayment of rent ... [amd the] experience of losing one’s home to eviction has been linked to all sorts of adverse consequences, including higher job loss, debt, suicide, and reduced credit access.” In addition, Cohen wrote, “Many

evicted families are forced to relocate to lower-quality homes in neighborhoods with more crime, [and] children experience higher food insecurity and lower academic achievement than other low-income kids living in rental housing, partly as a result of having to shuffle between schools and their parents’ declining mental health.” According to, 100 Terrace Avenue, also known as Jackson Terrace, was sold to its current owner in early 2007 for $27.5 million. According to PropertyShark. com, the property was also sold less than two weeks before that, in late 2006, for $1.

happens. When daytime temperatures drop from the higher to lower 80s, sometimes cracking your windows (especially up high, to let rising heat escape) can be all you need to keep your home reasonably cool. As temperatures rise, remember to close your windows (especially at the bottom) to keep hot air from coming in and cooler air from flowing out, and to draw your curtains to block the sun’s rays, too. Too stuffy inside? Find a shady spot (or make one, with an umbrella or tarp) and settle down with a book, phone, cool drink, or whatever else you like to quietly pass the time.

Legislators Propose Including Fentanyl Detection Test Strips in Narcan Kits

lanked by community leaders and recovery advocates on the front steps of the Theodore Roosevelt Executive & Legislative Building, Nassau County Legislators Delia DeRiggi-Whitton (D - Glen Cove), Arnold W. Drucker (D Plainview) and Debra Mulé (D - Freeport) unveiled legislation on Tuesday, June 21 that would require the inclusion of fentanyl-detecting test strips in Narcan kits distributed by Nassau County agencies. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid which experts at the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) have determined is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine. The consumption of fentanyl-laced drugs - often unbeknownst to the user - has resulted in a tragic increase in the number of overdose deaths amidst the ongoing opioid drug crisis in Nassau County and across America. Including fentanyl testing strips with Narcan kits would serve as a low-cost way of potentially identifying tainted drugs and preventing accidental overdoses. Individuals dissolve substances they wish to test in water and dip a strip into the solution. The strips require only minimal amounts of drug residue to work properly, and results are generally available within five minutes. Findings from the 2018 FORECAST study conducted by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health determined the inexpensive strips are simple to use and have a high level of accuracy in detecting fentanyl in drug samples. “Fentanyl has dramatically raised the stakes of our ongoing battle to conquer the opioid drug addiction crisis,” Legislator DeRiggi-Whitton, ranking member of the Nassau County Legislature’s Health & Social Services Committee, said. “Distributing these strips will give residents another tool for preventing the devastation caused by fatal overdoses. Most importantly, it will keep the door open for anyone who is struggling with addiction to ultimately get the treatment they need to achieve long-term recovery.” “For many years, we have witnessed the life-saving capabilities of Narcan and how receiving a reprieve from an overdose can be a catalyst for successful treatment and long-term recovery,” Legislator Mulé said. “Pairing fentanyl detection testing strips with the Narcan kits we distribute is a common-sense way for Nassau County to accelerate our collective efforts to prevent overdoses and save lives.” “As the battleground in the opioid drug crisis shifts, we must adapt our strategies to save more lives and give more residents the best possible chance at achieving long-term recovery,” Legislator Drucker said. “By including fentanyl detection testing strips

Legislators Arnold W. Drucker, Debra Mulé, and Delia DeRiggi-Whitton introduce legislation to require the inclusion of fentanyl test strips in Narcan kits on Tuesday, June 21. (Photos courtesy of the Office of the Nassau County Legislature Minority) in the Narcan kits that County agencies distribute, we have an opportunity to quickly ramp up our ability to uncloak this silent, stealthy killer - one that would otherwise lurk in the shadows.” In December 2021, Suffolk County passed similar legislation to require the inclusion of fentanyl testing strips in the Narcan strips they distribute. Here in Nassau, Keisha Graham-Wilson, of the Hicksville-based Central Nassau Guidance and Counseling Services, Inc., said the agency has been including Fentanyl testing strips in the Narcan test kits it distributes for the last several months. Kits come with directions stapled to the package; the proposed Nassau legislation similarly require instructions to be included with all testing kits that are distributed. “These test strips are so important in terms of preventing overdoses,” GrahamWilson said. “Individuals don’t realize that fentanyl is in substances that they are using. We have individuals that have told us they are only using marijuana, but when we do toxicology, sometimes we have to tell them that the substance they are using is laced with fentanyl - and they are so shocked and

surprised.” Additional recovery advocates and community leaders from across the County expressed their support for the proposal. They agreed that fentanyl test strips are yet another tool that can be utilized to prevent overdoses and save lives. “Because fentanyl is 40 to 50 times stronger than heroin, it is possible that a fentanyl overdose victim may not respond to just one dose of Narcan,” said Claudia Rotondo, Executive Director of the Baldwin Council Against Drug Abuse. “Providing these strips could be life-saving because it would give us the ability to test the remnants of the substance that was ingested to see if it was cut with fentanyl.” “The DEA warned several months ago that fentanyl was a driving force behind the majority of overdoses that have transpired in the last year,” said Dr. Sharon Harris, Executive Director of the Glen Cove-based Substance Abuse Free Environments (SAFE). “This is an incredibly important piece of information that needs to be promoted to educate our youth and our families an educate our youth and our families about what is going on.”

“This is very important legislation, and I am sure both sides will agree to this,” said Jeff Stone, President of Port Washingtonbased Project Help Long Island. “Fentanyl is a huge scourge on our society - plain and simple.” — Submitted by the Office of the Nassau County Legislature Minority



Richard Cottingham Indicted for 1968 Murder Outside Green Acres Mall


INEOLA, N.Y. – Nassau County District Attorney Anne T. Donnelly announced that a New Jersey man was arraigned June 22, 2022 on murder charges for the February 1968 murder of a New Hyde Park woman in the parking lot of Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream. Richard Cottingham, 75, of the South Woods State Prison in Bridgeton, N.J., was arraigned virtually before Judge Caryn Fink on a grand jury indictment, charging him with one count of Murder in the Second Degree (an A-I felony). The defendant pleaded not guilty and was remanded. If convicted of the top charge, the defendant faces a potential maximum of 25 years to life in prison. His case is due back in court on August 18, 2022. “Diane Cusick, a 23-year-old mother, called her parents on the night of February 15, 1968, to tell them she was going to the mall to purchase shoes. She never returned home. Cusick was allegedly bound and murdered by Richard Cottingham,” said DA Donnelly. “It was only through advances in DNA technology that the NCDA and our partners at the Nassau County Police Department, could solve this 54-year-old cold case and identify a suspect in Ms.

Cusick’s tragic death. We make a promise to her surviving daughter today: we will bring her mother’s killer to justice.” District Attorney Donnelly said that, according to the investigation, Diane Cusick, a 23-year-old resident of New Hyde Park, was an instructor at a dancing school in Oceanside, N.Y. On the evening of Thursday, February 15, 1968, Cusick told her family that she was going to the Green Acres Mall to buy a pair of dancing shoes. At approximately 10:30 p.m., her parents became concerned that their daughter had not returned home. The parents drove to the shopping center and discovered their daughter’s Plymouth Valiant car in a parking lot of Green Acres Mall. The parents found Cusick’s body in the backseat of the car. An adhesive band was found over her mouth and her hands were bound. She was pronounced deceased at 1:40 a.m. on February 16, 1968. The medical examiner determined that Cusick was asphyxiated due to strangulation. In 2021, certain evidence related to the case was retested by the Nassau County Office of the Medical Examiner, Division of Forensic Sciences – Biology. In early 2022, a DNA profile was generated from

that evidence, and it allegedly matched Cottingham’s profile. The NCDA thanks both retired and current members of the Nassau County Police Department who worked on this case and the Nassau County Office of the Medical Examiner. This case is being prosecuted by Chief

Jared Rosenblatt of the Homicide Bureau. The defendant is represented by Jeffrey Groder, Esq. The charges are merely accusations, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless found guilty. — Submitted by the Office of Nassau County District Attorney Anne T. Donnelly

Faulkner: Enduring, Prevailing, Unvanquished tragedian. This comes hard for Americans, a people “unschooled in tragedy,” (Richard Weaver), a people where “a happy ending is our story” (Mary McCarthy). Faulkner had a sense of humor, breaking through in such stories as “Shingles For The Lord” or his final novel, The Reivers. There were his circumstances, also his thorough reading of the Old Testament and the works of William Shakespeare. Faulkner was drawn to the drama of life and with it, the drama of prose. From “Red Leaves:”



his year, the twos have it. 2022. 2012. 2002. 1992. 1982. 1972. 1962. Stop right there. 1962? The Cuban Missile Crisis was the story of the year. Americans went to sleep on the evening of October 22 wondering if they would see the morning. Two famous Americans didn’t see a new morning that year. A year earlier, in 1961, Ernest Hemingway died, victim of a self-inflicted gun shot wound. His great rival, William Faulkner, died on July 6, 1962, after suffering another drinking binge. Dies the literature, dies the nation? Few, if anyone, will notice that this is the 60th anniversary of Faulkner’s passing. However, there’s never a good time not to write about the man and his work. More has been published on Faulkner than any other writer in the English language, save another William, Shakespeare by name. William Faulkner did have a brief New York connection. In his youth, he worked at a bookstore in Greenwich Village. His publishers were in the city. Faulkner polished up the ending to his 1929 classic, The Sound And The Fury while sitting cross-legged on a bed at a downtown hotel. He handed over the manuscript to his editor, remarking, “Here, read this. It’s a real son of a ----.” That it was. With The Sound And The Fury, Faulkner began to hit his stride. His friendship with Sherwood Anderson proved decisive. Anderson, who put small-town Ohio life on the map in a string of novels and stories, urged the young Faulkner to give up on the literary scene in New Orleans and instead, go back to northern Mississippi and zero in

(Photo courtesy of Internet archive) on his “postage stamp.” Anderson added, also decisively, that there’s two things a man can never be: Ashamed of himself and where he came from. For Faulkner, that was like falling off a log. He grew up in the “front porch republic” that existed before World War II. In Faulkner’s day, Americans sat on the front porch and talked all night. Tall tales inevitably made their way back to the Civil War. The young Faulkner was fascinated by both his paternal and maternal grandfathers. His father was a bureaucrat laid low by the Depression. The grandfathers, however, were both veterans. One of them even constructed a monument to himself, one that stands today in Ripley, Mississippi, north of Faulkner’s Lafayette County postage stamp. As with writers of his generation, William Faulkner took the burden of history and placed it right on his shoulders. His world was different than those of say, Andrew Lytle, Caroline Gordon or Donald Davidson. Mississippi still suffered from the war and reconstruction: Poverty, occupation, crippled veterans, widows clad in black, an intractable race situation. The man made the most of it. William Faulkner is America’s great

Don’t you see? This whole land, the whole south is cursed, and all of us who derive from it, whom it ever suckled, white and black both, lie under the curse? Or from “Delta Autumn:” ‘This Delta,’ he [Ike McCaslin] thought. ‘This Delta.’ This land, which man has deswamped and denuded and derivered in two generations so that white men can own plantations and commute every night to Memphis and black men can own plantations and even towns and keep their town houses in Chicago…where cotton is planted and grows man-tall in the very cracks in the sidewalks, where usury and mortgage and bankruptcy and measureless wealth, Chinese and African and Aryan and Jew, all breed and spawn together until no man has time to say which is which, or cares. In 1950, the weight of the world did fall on his shoulders. Winning the Nobel Prize for Literature that year was an event. For years, such future Nobelists as Jorge Luis Borges and Jean-Paul Sartre sang Faulkner’s praises. Malcolm Cowley’s 1946 collection, The Portable Faulkner, put him back in the good graces of the critics, paving the way for the Nobel. In Stockholm, Faulkner displayed a different side, stunning a global audience with a

message of hope. I decline to accept the end of man… I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an exhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. The poet’s… duty is to write about these things. It is his privilege to help man endure by lifting his heart, by reminding him of the courage and honor and hope and pride and compassion and pity and sacrifice which have been the glory of his past. The poet’s voice need not merely be the record of man, it can be one of the props, the pillars to help him endure and prevail. Novels, short stories, poetry, essays, reviews, speeches. Faulkner also spent much of the 1930s in Hollywood, writing film treatments for Warner Brothers. Jack Warner even boasted, “I have the best writer in the world working for me for peanuts!” (In time, Faulkner would tell Warner what he could do with his “peanuts.”) I’ll list two novels, Absalom, Absalom! (1936) and the before-mentioned The Sound And The Fury, as representative of the man’s corpus. That, reader, will have to wait until next week. In the meantime, keep in mind that Nassau County has the finest public library system in America. (Next week: Faulkner’s two great tragedies)

Steve Berlin’s Fave Los Lobos Albums BY DAVE GIL DE RUBIO

lovely surprise and that stuff never gets old. People bitch and moan about the relevancy of the Grammys and to a certain extent, they’re not necessarily wrong. But it’s pretty fun.” A true pandemic record, Native Sons was initially supposed to start recording

ven though saxophonist/producer Steve Berlin has been an official member of Los Lobos since 1984, he’s still the new guy in the band. That said, he’s been part of a wild ride that found the quintet without a label for the three-year stretch between 2016 and 2018 despite being a multi-platinum act with a deep canon and a 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination (we’re still waiting for induction). The California quintet achieved redemption after signing with roots music-leaning imprint New West Records, which released 2021’s Native Sons and paid off via a Grammy for Best Americana Album. An album conceived at the height of the pandemic, its industry success came as quite a surprise to Berlin, who saw Lobos snag a 1983 Grammy for Best MexicanLos Lobos from left: Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano, David Hidalgo, Louie Perez, Steve Berlin American Performance right (Photo by Piero F.

in November 2019, but between touring commitments and how the coronavirus slammed the brakes on the world in March 2020, actual recording didn’t begin until June. And that wound up being limited to recording one week a month out of an abundance of caution until vaccines became available. The result was an L.A.themed collection of covers (save for the title cut) that paid homage to the band’s myriad influences. Among the artists interpreted are Berlin’s old band The Blasters, War, Jackson Browne, Buffalo Springfield and more obscure artists including East L.A. garage band Thee Midniters and Chicano music icon Lalo Guerrero. But rather than the project being a hodgepodge of covers, Berlin pointed out how all the selections had meaning attached to them. “I know that I had compiled a list of maybe 60 songs as a starter,” Berlin said. “It wasn’t like a Chinese restaurant, where we would pick and choose

End The Stigma On Mental Health I grew up as a sensitive kid. So much so that when my elementary school gave out superlatives to graduating fifth-graders, the one I received was most self-aware. Growing up, I viewed my sensitivity as a weakness, a clear marker that separated me from my peers and gave high stakes to any social interaction I happened to find myself in. I didn’t really understand why I felt so different from other kids my age. Most seemed to wade through childhood keeping their head above water, impervious to insults and not getting bogged down in their own self-image. Middle school is when I had my first depressive episode. It was the summer going into eighth grade,and I got blindsided by a special brew of anxiety for the future and a persistent inner critic that wouldn’t give me any time to myself. Another wrinkle added to my situation was that my anxiety made me sick to my stomach so I could not keep


down any food I ate. This first dance in the waters of depression lasted about three weeks, which seems like the most minor of blips compared to the length of time I have been depressed since then. I have lost count of how many times depression has darkened my door. When my symptoms re-emerged, it was dispiriting because I convinced myself I was past it and would never

“regress” in that way. Yet, I don’t regret any of it. It has made me stronger, surer of myself, and—most importantly to me—compassionate about other’s hardships. Through the trial of adversity, I decided to choose growth. Not that this was easy. My biggest hurdle was bypassing my own stubbornness. I had to take my experiences and view them as a chance to better myself instead of beating myself up over my perceived “weakness.” Mental health awareness and ending stigma is very important to me. Not just because of my own exposure, but because of the many friends and family members I have seen affected by various mental health issues. I continue to meet so many amazing and brilliant people who suffer internally because of something out of their control. My experience and that of others made me curious about what mental health services were offered at my school, Farmingdale State College. I saw that there was

one-on-one counseling on campus, but there was a lack of specialized services or peer support groups. In spring of 2021, I was part of the Student Government Association (SGA) at Farmingdale, and each semester a Senator is required to present his/her own resolution with the goal of improving services for students on campus. I couldn’t think of a better idea than to center my resolution on expanding the mental health services on campus. There used to be more student resources for this, but the pandemic had limited those services and had yet to return in full force with options for the students. My resolution was aimed at addressing the addition of more support groups for students to discuss issues they were experiencing during the school year, and to cover a wider range of mental health concerns, such as social anxiety, depression, addiction and other mood disorders.

It got passed on the Senate floor, but it still took a while for the changes to be instituted. Luckily, a fellow Senator helped things progress further this past fall by adding his own resolution calling for more mental health services, which in effect expanded upon my resolution. This past spring, I saw fliers and even an electronic sign in front of campus advertising support groups for students, whether for anxiety, depression or other mental health issues. There is always more to be done, but it is important that we fight to give those suffering a place where they feel they can be heard and that they are not alone.

HOME & DESIGN Prepared For Summer


s the approaching 10th anniversary of Superstorm Sandy reminds us of the effects weather can have on the electric system, PSEG Long Island is announcing that it is prepared for hurricane season and to meet peak demand during extreme heat situations this summer. The company’s ongoing electric infrastructure and storm hardening improvements help provide electric reliability to Long Island throughout the year. PSEG Long Island has incorporated numerous enhancements and upgrades to the electric grid, its systems and its storm processes, including its contingency procedures.

Electric Infrastructure Improvements

Across Long Island and the Rockaways, PSEG Long Island has prepared the electric infrastructure by focusing on substation, and transmission and distribution improvements, as well as by performing circuit and equipment inspections using drones, helicopters and infrared technology.

Storm Hardening Programs Completed Do you have a love of history? This landmarked property at 63 Murray Ave. in Port Washington sold on June 15 for $1,400,000. Beautifully sited on a large 100’x120’ landscaped property with winter water views and lovingly maintained architectural details, this three bedroom and three bathroom home features a wrap-around porch, original wood floors, diamond sash windows and millwork. The charming entry foyer, inviting living room with gas fireplace and dramatic dining room are further enhanced by nine-foot ceilings and abundant natural light. Three spacious second floor bedrooms with eight-foot ceilings offer lovely views which share a full bathroom. An updated eat-in-kitchen was expanded to include a powder room and informal dining area. This property offers a lower level with outside entrance, utilities and laundry area. It is close proximity to the train station, waterfront, shops and restaurants.

It has been newly redesigned and meticulously updated to integrate high-end finishings with perfect functionality.

Three additional bedrooms and a full bath are also on the second floor. The two-car garage is attached. The home has a full basement and central air conditioning.

Since the implementation of the FEMA-funded storm-hardening program funded in 2014, PSEG Long Island has completed storm hardening and reliability work on more than 1,000 miles of distribution mainline circuits. The sections of circuits that are storm hardened saw a 44 percent reduction in damage leading to outages compared to the rest of the distribution system. PSEG continues its storm hardening work with Power On, an initiative started in the spring of 2020 that will continue to improve reliability by strengthening distribution lines, targeting the most vulnerable circuits across Long Island. More than 190 miles of distribution mainline circuits have been storm hardened with stronger poles, thicker wire and other modern equipment. Arborists work throughout the year to identify and trim tree limbs in rights of way and along easements that could potentially cause outages during or after a storm. PSEG has removed more than 88,500 hazardous trees and large limbs along the distribution and transmission system and trimmed more than 21,000 miles of distribution and transmission line clearance in accordance with the industry best practice clearance standard. This standard preserves the health of the tree and directs future growth away from power lines. A new vine mitigation program identified, cut and treated more than 14,000 vine locations across Long Island. PSEG also prepares its dedicated workforce for summer by conducting annual hurricane and tropical storm drills and employee training; by developing emergency summer operating plans; and by performing summer-peak reliability analyses to ensure there is sufficient capacity to meet electric demand on high-heat days. —PSEG Long Island

Living At Home With Dementia


he Alzheimer’s Association’s “2022 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures” report reveals that 6.5 million people in the U.S. are living with Alzheimer’s disease. More than 10% of people aged 65 and older have Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia, including frontotemporal dementia, Lewy body dementia, vascular dementia, and combinations of dementia types. “As their care needs increase, people with dementia may choose to live in a memory care facility,” Gregg Balbera, president of Right at Home Nassau Suffolk said. “Most prefer to remain in their own homes as long as possible, among familiar surroundings and their established support system.” But, said Balbera, this requires care support, which often is provided by spouses, adult children or other family and friends. Today, 11 million people are providing this care. They help loved ones with self-care, such as bathing, dressing and using the toilet. They pay bills and handle other paperwork. They coordinate their loved one’s medical care. They provide “emotional labor,” keeping their loved one’s spirits up and depression at bay while coping with personality and behavior changes caused by the disease. While many caregivers say caring for their loved one is rewarding, dementia caregiving is hard work, both physically and emotionally. “It often affects the caregiver’s career, other family relationships, and their physical and cognitive health,” said Balbera. “And many family caregivers are at an age when they need care themselves.”

Life Insurance Quotes For Seniors what affects the cost of premiums and compare different plans. Here’s how life insurance works and some types of policies that may be available to seniors.

How does life insurance for seniors work?

Life insurance for seniors provides loved ones with financial security when the policyholder passes away by paying out a sum of money called a

death benefit. Some policies also come with a cash value growth component that will accumulate over time. Once the policyholder has built up enough cash value, they can withdraw from it, borrow from it, or surrender the policy to receive the full amount minus surrender charges. With any life insurance plan, policyholders have to pay monthly premiums to maintain their coverage. Life insurance premiums for seniors can depend on many other factors, such as: • Insurer: Each insurer will offer different premiums. • Policy terms: A higher death benefit and adding riders can increase costs. • Gender: Men tend to pay slightly higher premiums than women, since women often live longer. • Age: Life insurance tends to get more expensive with age, since an older policyholder is more likely to pass away while the policy is active. • Family health history: Insurers consider the health history of both the policyholder and their family when calculating premiums. • Smoker vs. nonsmoker: Smokers pay

more for life insurance than nonsmokers, all else held equal. • Hobbies and lifestyle: Hobbies like skydiving, rock-climbing, and car racing may be considered risky, leading to higher premiums. Types of life insurance for seniors

Here are two main types of life insurance policies that are available to seniors:

Final expense insurance Final expense insurance is a small whole life insurance policy designed to help a senior’s loved ones cover end-oflife costs, such as outstanding medical bills and funeral expenses. This life insurance policy typically comes with a smaller death benefit and lower premiums than standard whole life insurance policies. Final expense insurance also provides a cash value growth component that builds with each payment and grows at a fixed rate. Final expense insurance policies generally don’t require a medical exam, making them an excellent option for seniors who might not qualify for other types of permanent life insurance policies.

CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE Term life insurance Term life insurance provides policyholders with coverage for a defined time period, usually from 10 to 30 years. Since these plans don’t offer lifelong coverage, premiums tend to be much more affordable. Term life policies offer higher death benefits than final expense insurance, but coverage ends when the policy term ends. This means seniors may have to get a new policy to maintain coverage.

Seniors have several options for getting life insurance at a rate they can afford. Final expense insurance offers guaranteed lifetime coverage for end-of-life costs, low premiums, and a cash value component. And term insurance lasts a limited time but offers a higher death benefit for relatively affordable premiums. Seniors should take their time to evaluate


Social Security Announces Benefit Increase For 2022 Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for approximately 70 million Americans have increased by 5.9 percent in 2022. The 5.9 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) began with benefits payable to more than 64 million Social Security beneficiaries in January 2022. Increased payments to approximately eight million SSI beneficiaries have been distributed since December 2021. Some people receive both Social Security and SSI benefits. The Social Security Act ties the annual COLA to the increase in the Consumer Price Index as determined by the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. Some other adjustments that take effect in January of each year are based on the increase in average wages. Based on that increase, the maximum amount of earnings subject to the Social Security tax (taxable maximum) will increase to $147,000 from $142,800. Social Security and SSI beneficiaries

Reasons People Life is a Journey Without Children Should Still Have Embrace An Estate Plan every day because every day P counts eople without children may think there’s no need to have an estate plan and/or will. This misconception can be especially true for married couples who believe the estate will easily transfer to a surviving spouse. However, the truth is an estate plan can make life a lot simpler in the time leading up to and after someone passes away. Whether someone is married or not, here are four reasons why people without children still need an estate plan.


An Estate Plan Can Designate Healthcare and Legal Authority

An estate plan assigns decision-making authority for healthcare and legal decisions through critical documents like an advanced healthcare directive and power of attorney. And those without children still need to define these decision-makers, whether it’s a spouse, friend, sibling, niece or nephew. If someone falls ill, gets into an accident, or is otherwise incapacitated, their spouse or designated decision-maker needs the authority to make decisions on their behalf. And failure to get the proper documents in place could mean receiving care that doesn’t align with someone’s wishes.

charities could benefit instead. That means assets like, taxable brokerage accounts, savings/checking accounts, CDs, etc. can directly benefit people or causes meaningful to the deceased. Other accounts, such as retirement accounts, annuities and term life insurance policy death benefits are directed by their beneficiary designation, not a will. However, they can also be a key part of an estate plan as they avoid probate and can also avoid attorney’s fees. Updating beneficiaries should be done at the same time as keeping a will up to date.


An Estate Plan Outlines Who Will Care for Pets

An important consideration after someone passes away is what will happen to their furry loved ones. And for those without someone else at home to take over the responsibility, an estate plan is a perfect place to outline where pets will go and what, if any, financial support they’ll receive. Failure to appoint where pets should go could mean they’ll be much worse off after their human is gone.


An Estate Plan Can Help Smooth Business Succession

Business owners have a unique obligation to their partners and employees to Many people work their whole lives to ensure the business can continue after accumulate assets and financial accounts. they’re gone.

Talk to your health care provider and health plan about resources that might be available to help you quit. • Eat healthy foods, like those low in cholesterol and saturated fat, plus lots of fruits and vegetables If you know the signs and symptoms of a stroke and act quickly, it can mean the difference between life or death, major disability or a better quality of life. If you experience the sudden onset of any of these symptoms, seek medical care immediately: • Numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg—especially on one side of the body • Confusion or trouble speaking or understanding • Problems seeing in one eye or both eyes • Dizziness, loss of balance or coordination, or trouble walking • Severe headache with no known cause Every year strokes take a toll on far too many of us.

bout 795,000 people have a stroke every year, including thousands of people in New York, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). The good news is up to 80 percent of strokes are preventable and if one occurs, it is possible to treat and recover if caught early. Getting smarter about strokes is crucial as time is a major factor in preventing disability or death. Understanding the symptoms of stroke and risk factors can help you get help fast and reduce your risks. A stroke is a medical emergency caused by the interruption of the flow of blood to the brain as a result of a clot or internal bleeding. Our brains require a continuous supply of oxygen and nutrients. If blood flow stops, brain cells start to die in just a few minutes. Because of this, a stroke can have a serious impact on many functions of your body, including speech, respiration, movement, cognition, and bladder control. Strokes reduce mobility in more than half of stroke survivors 65 and over. In fact, stroke causes more serious long-term disabilities than any other disease, according to the National Institute on Aging. Individuals who survive strokes often need physical, speech, occupational therapy and other medical care. Older adults are at an increased risk of having a stroke. However, there are several ways you can help reduce those risks, including: • Make exercise part of your daily routine. Many people don’t know that many Medicare Advantage health plans include fitness benefits. For example, UnitedHealthcare’s Renew Active program

Report Finds Challenges Understanding Alzheimer’s Development


he Alzheimer’s Association 2022 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures report found challenges faced by both doctors and the American public in understanding and diagnosing mild cognitive impairment (MCI). It is estimated that 10 to 15 percent of people with MCI—an early stage of memory or other cognitive loss—go on to develop dementia each year. The 2022 Facts and Figures report provides an in-depth look at the latest national statistics on Alzheimer’s disease prevalence, incidence, mortality, costs of care and impact on caregivers along with a new section on the dementia care workforce. An accompanying special report, “More than Normal Aging: Understanding Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI),” for the first time examined both public and primary care physicians’ understanding of real-world awareness, diagnosis and treatment of MCI and MCI due to Alzheimer’s disease in the United States. “Mild cognitive impairment is often confused with ‘normal aging,’ but is not part of the typical aging process,” said Maria Carrillo, Ph.D., chief science officer, Alzheimer’s Association. “Distinguishing between cognitive issues resulting from normal aging, those associated with MCI and those related to MCI due to Alzheimer’s disease is critical in helping individuals, their families and physicians prepare for future treatment and care.” New disease-related statistics for New York revealed the following: • Number of New York residents aged 65 and older living with Alzheimer’s: 410,000 • Estimated number of New York residents living with Alzheimer’s in 2025: 460,000 • Percentage change: 12.2 percent • Number of New York residents serving as unpaid family caregivers: 563,000 • Total hours of unpaid care provided: 835,000,000 “The new Facts and Figures report shows the impact of Alzheimer’s on families here in Long Island and across the entire nation,” Douglas E. Davidson, executive director of the Alzheimer’s Association, Long Island Chapter, said. “In Nassau and Suffolk counties, the Alzheimer’s Association is supporting the community with education to help people understand and recognize early signs and symptoms and with programs to help caregivers and people living with the disease.”

MCI common but still unknown

It is estimated 12-to18 percent of people age 60 or older have MCI. While some with MCI will remain stable or revert to normal, up to 15 percent go on to develop dementia each year. Identifying which people with MCI are more likely to develop dementia is a major goal of current research, potentially enabling earlier disease intervention and treatment. Despite the prevalence among aging Americans, the new report found more than four out of five Americans (82 percent) know very little or are not familiar with MCI. When prompted with a description of MCI, more than half (55 percent) say MCI sounds like “normal aging.”

Importance of early intervention

Of survey respondents who wanted to learn about Alzheimer’s disease during the MCI phase, more than half (70 percent) noted the need for planning and opportunities for treatment. Early diagnosis gives families time to make legal, financial and care decisions for the future, based on a patient’s concerns and priorities, and is associated with lower overall health care costs. The vast majority of primary care physicians (86 percent) said early intervention can slow progression of cognitive decline. Only one out of five physicians report being familiar with clinical trials available to their

patients with MCI, and only one out of four say they are familiar with new therapies in the pipeline to address MCI due to Alzheimer’s disease. When MCI is detected, primary care physicians most often recommend lifestyle changes.

Future outlook and opportunities

The last two decades have marked an increase in the development of a new class of medicines that target the underlying biology and aim to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. As of February 2022, there are 104 disease-modifying treatments being evaluated in clinical trials or at various stages of regulatory approval. These potential therapies are aimed at slowing the progression of MCI due to Alzheimer’s disease and mild Alzheimer’s dementia, according to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Workplace shortages

This year’s report also includes a new section on dementia care workforce. Most states will have to nearly triple the number of geriatricians who were practicing in 2021 to effectively care for the number people projected to have Alzheimer’s dementia in 2050. Most states will need to double the number of home health and personal care aides. • In New York, there are approximately 568 geriatricians. By 2050, 44 percent more are needed to meet the needs of people projected to have Alzheimer’s. • New York had 437,300 home health and personal care aides in 2018. That number will need to increase by 60.6 percent to meet demand by 2028. —Alzheimer’s Association

LOS LOBOS from page 4A from that list. The list was an inspiration. As we went along, one song would remind us of another song. The songs had to mean something to somebody in the band and especially if it was something someone in the band felt passionate about.” With such a long and storied canon, Berlin shared what Los Lobos projects resonated most with him. ...And a Time to Dance (1983) “The first one [was pretty seminal] because it was the first one. And I wasn’t even part of that. I wasn’t even in the band. I was in The Blasters. I was producing it. That record was made while I was transitioning into being a full-time member.” How Will the Wolf Survive? (1984) “Making How Will the Wolf Survive?


was profound because it was our first real record. We’d won a Grammy for that EP [... And a Time to Dance], so we were on the radar. We had risen up the food chain, if you will. We were not brand-new anymore, were doing well on the road and making a little bit of money. Things were certainly looking up. We were on Warner Brothers, so we knew we had to step up a little bit. We had a ball doing it. We didn’t feel much pressure, but we knew we had to do a great job. That was a big one.” Kiko (1992) “We were concerned that we were going to be dropped by our label because the [prior] record [The Neighborhood] didn’t do well. Long story short, we had to make a new record and we were pissed off at ourselves, the world and the music business. We did what we wanted to do and the way we wanted

to do it. We were all in a very experimental mood and [engineer Tchad Blake] was the main mad scientist. We would do something and he would do his thing and it would sound awesome. Any dumb idea sounded so great with whatever he was doing to it. He made everything work. A lot of times in the studio you’ll go down a road and then decide to rethink something. I don’t remember that ever happening because we never took a step back. We always just kept going forward. It was always cool and we just decided to keep going. It was really just joyous and fun. Making Kiko was tons of fun. If we’re enjoying ourselves, more often than not, it’s going to translate to the music. That was really fun.” The Ride (2004) “We did The Ride, which we produced ourselves and that was amazing. The Ride and the Super Seven records were similar

because we were making records with people that we respected and people that had powerfully influenced us, like Tom Waits, Richard Thompson, Mavis Staples and Bobby Womack. It was just sort of taking what we had learned on the way to making records and bringing people into our world or going into their world. The Ride and Super Seven records were fun because we got to see how our culture interacted with other people’s cultures. We certainly liked the culture that we had cultivated and it was pretty wacky and daring.” Los Lobos will be appearing with the Tedeschi Trucks Band on July 10 at the Great South Bay Music Festival, Shorefront Park, Patchogue.

ong Island Orchestrating for Nature (LION), the leading animal advocacy organization on Long Island, has named Animal General of East Norwich its “2021 Veterinarian of the Year” for the animal hospital’s tremendous efforts and dedication to providing free and low-cost veterinary care to wildlife and domestic fowl rescued from cruelty, complete with a plaque featuring a chicken and a plant-based care package from Cindysnacks Vegan Market. “Whether we are asking them to carefully remove duct-tape from a goose who was strapped with fireworks, amputate the wing of a chicken maimed by animal sacrifice, bring back to life ailing birds saved from live slaughter markets, or treat animals suffering from years of neglect at Long Island petting zoos, we know that our rescues are in good hands when we bring them to Animal General for an appointment” John Di Leonardo, an anthrozoologist and president of LION said. VCA Animal General of East Norwich serves as the primary veterinarian for LION’s domestic fowl rescues, and Dr. Ellen Leonhardt, the practice’s medical director, as well as staff veterinarian Dr. Danielle Perrone, serve on the advisory board of Volunteers for Wildlife, a local wildlife rehabilitation organization. “VCA Animal General of East Norwich is proud of our on-going collaborative efforts, working alongside John Di Leonardo, Long Island Orchestrating for Nature (LION) and numerous other wildlife rescue groups within our community,” Dr. Leonhardt said. “We pride ourselves in helping the

Vet Of The Year underserved, moving towards a healthier and safer environment for these delicate creatures, each deserving individualized care, attention and veterinary medical expertise.” Among its notable victories, LION successfully opposed the expansion of SeaQuest Aquariums’ sordid mall aquarium chain into Oyster Bay in 2019, recently saved the lives of tens of thousands of animals over the course of just one week in Huntington, and has rescued hundreds of ducks, chickens and peafowl abandoned in Oyster Bay since 2016.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Perhaps the world “flirt” is too reductive to describe your interaction style, which has more to do with stirring up good vibes than it does with any social agenda. Nonetheless, someone thinks you’re flirting with them and loves it. Business will be friendly, and a friendship will lend itself to doing business, too. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even if you do what everyone else is doing, your expression, experience and thoughts about it will be unique, as your mind is a filter unlike any other. Your creative stamp will be on all you do without any conscious effort on your part. Originality pours from your unselfconscious commitment to the moment you’re in. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The list of things you’re looking out for today includes: the best in people, the sunny side, ways to help and means to uplift. The quest causes you to automatically fall into the flow of fortuitous words and actions. You don’t even have to think about the next correct move; it all flows naturally.


It’s a better world because you’re here. This will be evident in the lives and smiles of those you help. Your own well-being is also proof. The responsibility to take magnificent care of yourself is the one from which all else happens. The single lifestyle choice that has the biggest impact will be the company you keep. A truly unusual meeting will take your professional life for an exciting ride. There’s also a daring element to your social life, and you’ll put a certain thrilling activity or game on repeat.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your planning skills are cosmically touched, and it’s more than worth your time and energy to brainstorm, fantasize and commit to some logistics. What goes on in your head and on paper now will bring excitement to your experience later. Future-you will thank planner-you and praise your brilliance.

God save the king! East dealer. Both sides vulnerable. NORTH ♠K62 ♥9 8 5 ♦ A K 10 ♣9 7 4 2 WEST EAST ♠8 ♠ Q J 10 9 4 3 ♥J 6 2 ♥A ♦87543 ♦QJ9 ♣ 10 6 5 3 ♣K Q J SOUTH ♠A75 ♥ K Q 10 7 4 3 ♦62 ♣A 8 The bidding: East South West North 1♠ 2♥ Pass 3♥ 3♠ 4♥ Opening lead — eight of spades. Declarer frequently has a choice of whether to win a trick in his own hand or in dummy. Obviously, no uniform rule can be applied to these situations — the right play depends strictly on the circumstances. Consider the present case, where West led a spade that South could win in either hand. His potential losers were a spade, a club and either one or two hearts. It was clear that he could hold himself to one trump loser by leading a trump from dummy toward his K-Q-10,

since the bidding had marked East with the ace. So declarer took the opening spade lead with dummy’s king in order to lead a trump. But when East won with the ace and returned the queen of spades, South was in trouble. He played the ace, trumped by West, and declarer later lost a club and a spade and went down one. South was certainly right in thinking that the first trump lead should come from dummy. But since it was almost certain from the bidding that East had six spades and West only one, declarer should have chosen his entries more carefully. To protect against a 6-1 spade division, South should have won the spade lead in his hand, led a diamond to dummy’s king and then led a trump. East would win and return a spade, but this would no longer pose a threat. West could ruff, but in that case dummy would play low, and South would lose only the ace of hearts, a club and a spade ruff. And if West did not ruff the spade return, dummy’s king would win, and South’s only losers would be a spade, a heart and a club. Declarer’s choice of where to take the first trick made all the difference between winning and losing the contract.

Garden City Mayor’s Update FLAG DROP BOX DONATION At the Memorial Day observance hosted by William Bradford Turner Post No. 265, under the auspices of Commander, Frank Tauches, Jr., Garden City Fire Department Ex-Chief Larry Nedelka donated a flag collection box to the American Legion on behalf of his late parents. Frank and Joan Nedelka were once very active members of the Legion, having served as Commander and Auxiliary president respectively. The box will be placed on the Village Green near the Gazebo. Residents and businesses now have a place to properly dispose of tattered and worn American flags. “Thank you Larry for your generous gift to the Village on behalf of your parents.,” Mayor Cosmo Veneziale said. ST. PAUL’S TOWN HALL The Mayor’s Committee on St. Paul’s held its first Town Hall on the Future of St. Paul’s June 21 at Cluett Hall. Thirtyseven residents who are experts in law, architecture, design, engineering, construction, historic preservation, program development and usage, budget, finance and communications make up the various sub-committees. The presentation made by the St. Paul’s Committee addressed potential uses that could be accommodated within the existing Main Building and that would benefit the residents of the Village, from young to old. I was very pleased with the meeting turn out. Future public meetings will address potential demolition issues, adaptive reuse and costs related to restoration and demolition. The Committee welcomes all helpful, constructive advice as well as other recommendations from our residents and friends. Ultimately, a referendum will be proposed to determine the fate of St. Paul’s Main Building. ENHANCED LANDSCAPE PLAN AT MAIN AVENUE The Enhanced Landscape Plan at Main Avenue continues with numerous large specimen shrubs and trees planted by the landscape contractor, Sweet Hollow Nursery. Work has also begun on the stone restoration of the Denton Avenue Underpass wing walls. I am involved with all the details to restore the areas impacted by the Third Track Expansion with the LIRR and 3TC, as well as our Village Administrator, Building Superintendent and Village Engineers. VILLAGE WEBSITE REDESIGN I am happy to announce that the Board of Trustees has engaged the services of CivicPlus to perform a complete redesign of the Village website. Dozens of companies responded to the Village’s Request For Proposal (RFP). Personnel narrowed it down to three companies. CivcPlus has redesigned more than 7,000 municipal websites. We believe this company will enables to better interface with residents.


For more information about CivicPlus, visit PARKING TICKET REVENUES In the fall of 2021, the Board of Trustees contracted with FBS Parking Solutions to replace the antiquated parking ticket writer system the Police Department was using with its “ConnectSmart Parking” system. FBS provides ticket writers, printers, and software, as well as necessary maintenance and training. FBS also provides the Village Court with a New York State compliant parking management and payment solution system. According to Police Commissioner Kenneth Jackson, the Department realizes a savings of $1,350 per month in maintenance fees as well as additional equipment and operational costs. FBS acts as a third-party collection agency for all delinquent parking tickets and is able to file judgments on behalf of the Village. FBS only collects a percentage of delinquent fines received, not for tickets paid on time or dismissed by the court. According to Village Treasurer Irene Woo, the new system has resulted in $300,000 in increased parking revenues, which is partially offset by $150,000 in FBS fees, for a net increase in revenue of approximately $150,000 through April 2022 for the 202122 Fiscal Year. The neighboring Villages of Mineola, Hempstead, Freeport, Floral Park and Lynbrook already utilize FBS. PLEASE WATER OUR VILLAGE TREES If you have recently had a tree planted in front of your home, please take the time to water it. The proper way to water is to first loosen the soil around the tree if it has become baked hard and then allow a hose to run at the base of the tree at a rate slow enough so that the water will be absorbed into the area around the tree trunk. If you are using a hose at the base of the tree, please do not block any village sidewalks to avoid injury to pedestrians. If your tree can’t be reached with a hose, a bucket full of water every 2-3 days will suffice. Residents are reminded that watering hours are from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Odd-numbered addresses on odd-numbered days and even-numbered addresses on even- numbered days. Thank you for your cooperation. — Submitted June 22, 2022 by Garden City Mayor Cosmo Veneziale, cveneziale@ 233105 S

Young Westbury Team Builds For The Future FRANK RIZZO


ompeting in Nassau Conference VII, the Westbury softball team finished the season with a losing record. The Nassau Illustrated News interviewed coach Jaclyn Beraud.


What were your goals and expectations for this season? And did the team meet them? My goals and expectations for this season [revolved around] learning. We had a very young team this year after graduating almost our whole starting lineup, including most of our key positions. I did expect a lot from my returning players though, both to help their younger teammates and on the field. The girls absolutely passed my expectations with flying colors and I’m excited to see what they can do next year.

Who were your top hitters/pitchers? Jacqueline Mendez pitched 13 out of 14 games, faces 231 batters, allowed 119 hits—and only left 46 players on base.

Workers at Garden City Starbucks voted unanimously to form a union in mid June. With 23 workers voting in favor of forming a union, and none opposed, the location at The Gallery in Westbury Plaza joins nearly 300 Starbucks locations nationwide that have taken official steps to unionize.

Jennifer Dunn, an organizer with Starbucks Workers United, told Patch AM, “We love our job, but we want to serve the customers to the best of our abilities.” Starbucks spokeswoman Sarah Albanesi commented to press, “As we have said throughout, we will respect the process and will bargain in good faith guided by our principles laid out here. We hope that the union does the same.”
