By Losing Her Life, She Saved Others Natalie Ciappa’s death leads to anti-opioid initiative, awareness BY FRANK RIZZO


or Victor Ciappa of Massapequa and his wife Doreen, the death of their daughter Natalie at age 18 is always present. Before Ciappa stepped up to the microphone at a June 22 press conference to announce a renewed push for Operation Natalia, the county’s anti-opioid initiative, County Executive Laura Curran had said, “Yesterday was the 13th anniversary of the overdose death of Natalie Ciappa. And I was speaking with Mr. Ciappa before and he said it always feels like it was yesterday.” Regarding Natalie’s death in a Seaford garage turned party room on June 21, 2008, Ciappa said, “It could have been prevented—if we knew the signs. If we were aware that heroin was in Massapequa and all the Nassau and Suffolk towns. Now we know. And I’d like to speak directly to the parents who have the perfect child. Natalie was a perfect child. You have to open your eyes, swallow hard. Get into their business. Look at their friends. Look at their cell phone. Be invasive to save your kid’s life. It’s that important.” He added, “Thank God for Operation Natalie because we didn’t have this weapon then— and that’s why we lost her.” With a nod to the police brass and officers assembled behind him, he said, “These guys are my heroes.” Speaking directly to parents he asserted, ”You people have got to do the right things— you’re parents, not friends, of your children. God Bless you.” Soon after their daughter’s death from a heroin overdose, the Ciappas began a personal odyssey to inform parents about the resurgent scourge of heroin. Once a drug associated with inner-cities and tortured artists and musicians, it had become easily available in the suburbs and found a whole new slew of consumers. Natalie was described in a news article from the year of her death as a “talented

Natalie Ciappa died of an heroin overdose on her father’s birthday in 2008, and gave name to an anti-opioid initiative started by Nassau County. (Screen capture) singer, beautiful cheerleader and above-average honors student,” a Plainedge High School graduate who was awarded a scholarship to SUNY Old Westbury. Operation Natalie was started in 2018, replacing an earlier program called Natalie’s Law, which was passed by both Nassau and Suffolk legislatures to create a website to map heroin possession and sales arrests. Parents could then see where the “hot spots” were in their communities. Under Operation Natalie, according to a press release, the county aims “to decrease both fatal and non-fatal overdoses and to provide pathways to recovery.” It will focus on providing targeted communities in “hot spots” with enforcement, treatment information and education, then returning two months later to provide information on the campaign. Among communities identified as places where opioid use/ sales are a concern include Farmingdale, East Meadow, Hicksville, Levittown and Massapequa. Cops would do follow-up visits to homes where people

had overdosed and survived, offering additional help.

Dismal Numbers

Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder acknowledged Ciappa, stating, “Vic and I speak quite often. It’s tough on a parent and community when we lose somebody that young, so innocent, to this horrific drug called heroin. And now with Fentanyl inside of it.” The pandemic, the commissioner affirmed, had disrupted the successful campaign. “We were winning the battle, We were reducing the numbers in ’17, ’18 and ’19. And then we got hit with COVID and we lost our way. The numbers drove right up,” Ryder noted. He added, “But we’re bringing that fight back. Our education, awareness, diversion, treatment and again the aftercare. Education and awareness. It went out. We couldn’t get to the communities, we couldn’t get to the schools. We’re bringing it back. Our enforcement side of it had slowed down, because again, our interaction with the public about

going out there aggressively and attacking in the war on heroin—that’s slowed down.” Regarding the numbers, he said, “In 2017, we hit a high. 334 non-fatal and 50 fatal overdoses. We started Operation Natalie in March 2018, our numbers at the end of 2019 were 217 non-fatal and 44 fatal overdoses. That’s a 21 percent decrease from 2017 and a 15 percent decrease in the fatal from 2017. As of today, in 2021, already my six-month non-fatal are closing in on the six-month from 2017. I’m at 281 non-fatal and 76 fatal overdoses.” The highest figures come from the cohort between ages 21 and 30. “Those are the people that are out of work, don’t have jobs to go to. Not going to school. Staying at home. Getting into that depression again. So we’re going to be out there again reaching to family members,” Ryder said. As far as enforcement, the commissioner stated, “In 2017 we made 766 heroin arrests. In 2020, 294. The enforcement dropped, again because of COVID. The overdoses went up, so the product was still on the street.”

I’d like to speak directly to the parents who have the perfect child. Natalie was a perfect child. You have to open your eyes. Be invasive to save your kid’s life. It’s that important. —Victor Ciappa

Similarly, Narcan applications, which revive victims of overdoses, went from 746 in 2017 to 300 so far this year. The calls for Narcan should increase with overdoses spikes, he noted, but “we’re not getting the calls.” Ryder also observed that the department’s “Too Good

for Drugs” program, given in 48 of 56 school districts, was also cut back significantly thanks to COVID, as many schools were closed to in-person learning or did not allow outside visitors. Curran announced that each precinct would add a problem-oriented policing (POP) officer, bringing the total to four. According to Ryder, “The POP cops are out there working with the community, working with our narcotics guys, and trying to get the message out there and educate the public.” The press conference also featured a demonstration starring “Moose,” a K-9 with handler Robert Cohen, who sniffed out a container of cocaine. “As you know, marijuana has been legalized in the state of New York,” Ryder said. “That’s a problem for us—our dogs were trained to sniff marijuana. Now our dogs are working on sniffing just cocaine and heroin.” “I’m grateful for the work of this wonderful police department and our district attorney’s office and all of our treatment providers and [others], who are in this fight together,” Curran said. “To make sure we are saving our young people, saving anyone who has fallen into the clutches through no fault of their own. We all have family who have been affected by this. Loved ones who have been affected by this. But this doesn’t mean we are going to accept it. We’re going to do everything we can to save more people.” She added, “I want to thank Mr. Ciappa for being here today. I know it’s not easy to talk about this. But he has taken his experience and with a lot of courage and bravery has—I have no doubt—saved lives. So I want to thank him for that.” What did you think of this article?

There was much fun to be had at the Mid-Island Y JCC in Plainview on June 24.

Celebrating The Survivors Holocaust survivors gather for refreshments, dancing and conversation




ivia Horovitz was only six years old when she was a prisoner of Auschwitz concentration camp and had lost 28 people in her family. “Only my parents came back and my mother’s two sisters,” Horovitz said. “I miss my family so much. I don’t remember their faces, but I remember they were still alive for sure. My grandmother was tall and skinny and I miss her so much. I saw her every week.” Horovitz said she could never forget what she went through, layered by the fact that she had to escape from her home country, Hungary, during the revolution against Soviet-imposed policies in 1956. “I left everything in Hungary,” Horovitz said. “My father left the house, the business and everything because after we had the concentration camps, the Russians came in and they took everything. For 10 years they were there. I was free, but not free.” “It’s not easy, my life,” Horovitz added. Horovitz moved to the United States in 1957 after escaping to Austria. “I have aunts here so we could come right away,” Horovitz said. “I did not have to wait too much in Austria because my aunt sent the affidavit for us. I married in Austria. That was a funny thing because they said you could not go if you’re engaged. So we got married.” Decades later, Horovitz would find herself at the Mid-Island Y JCC in Plainview on June 24 with approximately 50 other survivors and their families for the first annual event to commemorate Holocaust Survivors Day, a day to remember and celebrate survivors world-wide. “I’m so happy to be here because it’s been a long time since we could all get together,” Horovitz of North Bellmore said. “It’s so nice to see the people.” Holocaust Survivor Day was founded in honor of

Auschwitz survivor Marian Turski, a noted historian and journalist. Because his birthday, June 26, falls on Shabbat, Holocaust Survivor Day was observed on June 24. The day was intended to be a time of joy and celebration for Holocaust survivors rather than a day for condemnation of the Nazis. “We wanted to get them together to enjoy each other’s company, not to bring them together and have to have them sit and talk about the past all the time,” Rick Lewis, the chief executive officer at MidIsland Y JCC and Suffolk Y JCC, said. “We wanted to bring them together to talk about each other, their success. A lot of times people don’t ask them what they did today, how many children they have, how many grandchildren, what they do for a living.” And talk the survivors did, over a pretzel and hummus appetizer, ice cream provided by Mister Softee and coffees and pastries. Teenagers volunteered as the waiters and waitresses that day, including Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School student Jordan Riccuiti. “I feel that it’s really important to hold events like

these,” Riccuiti said. “It’s important that we learn about [the Holocaust] and respect these people who have been through such hard things in the past... It’s just so nice to see them be together. I heard people talking about good times together and building friendships, it’s just the greatest thing to see.” Not only did the survivors talk, they danced. Once the music started playing, Mid Island Y JCC staff got the party started by bringing survivors up to dance with them. Among those dancing, laughing and enjoying the Thursday afternoon was Susan Konstantyn. “It’s a great occasion,” said Konstantyn, who is married to Alex Konstantyn, a survivor from Poland. “He went through a lot, so it’s a wonderful thing to have survivors join together in celebration.” Getting together in person is much better than being on the phone or over Zoom, she added.

Sarah Grace Foundation Raises $4,800 In Virtual 5K 3.1-mile run honors organization namesake who would have been 31 BY DAVE GIL DE RUBIO


he Sarah Grace Foundation for Children With Cancer, Inc. recently hosted its first ever virtual 5K race this spring, raising $4,800 to continue providing important programs and services for children and families affected by pediatric cancer. Given the fact the goal of the Hicksville-based nonprofit organization is to improve the quality of life of children with cancer and provide comfort and support to families of children suffering from cancer, achieving this mission statement became that much more challenging in the midst of a pandemic. “With what happened with COVID-19 in the past year, we’ve had to get pretty creative with our fundraising,” Foundation President Matthew Weippert said. “We’ve had to go virtual with many of our fundraisers and regroup.” The “Hugs for Sarah 2021 Virtual 5K” drew nearly 100 participants from all across the country showing their support. Locally, 20 participants came from the robotics team at Hicksville High School all walked the event together. All racers were encouraged to share photos from their own virtual 5k on social media with the hashtag #HugsForSarah5k and everyone received a personalized race bib and finishers medal. “This certainly shows that in the almost 19 years we have been spreading Sarah’s story and supporting these wonderful children, word has traveled across the country about the good works being done in Sarah’s name,” Weippert said. Matthew and Marissa Weippert lost their then 12-year-old daughter to ninemonth battle with Acute Lympoblastic Leukemia in November 2002. Out of the ashes of that tremendous loss came the Sarah Grace Foundation For

Children With Cancer. The significance of the Hugs for Sarah 2021 Virtual 5K race is that the distance equates to 3.1 miles and this year the organization’s namesake would have turned 31 years old on March 31. All proceeds from the race will support the programs and activities of this all-volunteer organization. Core programs include The Escape Hatch, Gabe’s Chemo Duck, The Bead Program, Sarah Grace’s Book Angels and holiday toy distributions. The Foundation also provides financial aid for families, including meals, transportation, household expenses and funeral expenses. The foundation raises roughly $50,000 annually and is constantly stretching out these funds to directly help between 100 to 125 families every year. And that doesn’t factor in the hundreds of toys and Halloweenrelated goodie bags sent out to all the area hospitals on Long Island and in New York City. Weippert was pleased with how this first-time event went. “We’re thrilled with how successful the event was and with how much fun people had sharing their photos online,” Weippert said. “The results have inspired us to hopefully continue events like these as we continue our mission to support children with cancer.” Visit www.thesarahgracefoundation. org/shop-donate/ if you would like to donate online. If you would prefer to mail in a donation, it can be mailed to the Foundation at 17 East Old Country Rd., Unit B, PMB 202, Hicksville NY 11801.

t approximately 7:10 p.m. on June 25, the Wantagh FD received a call for a jet ski accident, with two people in the water at Seaman’s Creek in the vicinity of the first bridge on the Wantagh Parkway. Rescues 3 and 5, Marine One and the dive team responded. Third Assistant Chief Bill Stevens was first to arrive at the area of the first bridge and civilians in the area alerted him to the area east of the Wantagh Parkway. Chief Stevens reported that the person on the jet ski was already removed from the water and was being transported to the Wantagh Park Boat Ramp by a private vessel. Chief of Department Ken Kelly redirected to Wantagh Park and ordered Rescue 5 to respond to the Park and Rescue 3 and Marine One to continue their response to the location of the accident as there was still the possibility of one person in the water. As units were responding to both locations, Chief Stevens determined there was only one victim, a 28-year-old female, and Chief Kelly directed all units to Wantagh Park. Additional units on the scene included Rescue 1 and Ladder 1, the United States Coast Guard, Nassau County Police Marine Unit and Town of Hempstead Bay Constable. All Marine Units conducted a coordinated search of the water until it was confirmed there was only one victim.

A helicopter from the Nassau County Police Department was requested to expedite transfer to the hospital. As the helicopter was responding, the patient was stabilized and removed from the boat. Police personnel at the scene assisted by securing a landing zone adjacent to the boat ramp and the patient was transferred to the helicopter and transported to Nassau University Medical Center. All units were secure in 30 minutes and there were no injuries reported. —Kevin Regan is a public information officer with the Wantagh FD

Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the American Flag in 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress and is a time to reflect on the importance of this patriotic symbol. At each of the schools, students wore patriotic colors and attire decorated with flags. The students also congregated outside to sing patriotic songs and to take time to honor the American flag.

Local Student Takes His Best Shot To Help Others We Invite You to Auction!



ared Ohebshalom describes his Smile Shot challenge as “like the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but a step further”. Ohebshalom is a 17-year-old varsity athlete with a dream to one day become a dentist. As a student at Great Neck North High School, when Ohebshalom isn’t playing basketball, soccer, or lacrosse, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends. Throughout Ohebshalom’s time playing sports, he noticed something, “Whenever you hit a shot in any sport…you smile after.” Smiling is a universal expression that connects everyone, no matter their differences. Some of the most genuine smiles come after accomplishing something great, like hitting a game-winning three-pointer in basketball. Millions of children and adults across the world, however, are unable to show such joy. For those suffering with a cleft palate, smiling may feel impossible. Many people born with cleft palates struggle with bullying and social isolation due to their appearance, and many newborns with this condition do not survive or are abandoned. Ohebshalom first heard of Operation Smile through his parents. Operation Smile is a nonprofit organization that partners with local health care providers in more than 30 impoverished countries in order to provide free surgical treatment to people with cleft palates. Many of these people are not able to afford or otherwise are unable to get the care they need. Operation Smile also provides continued care to their patients after the procedure, including dental work and speech therapy. What really impacted Ohebshalom and caused him to want to help were stories of children in developing countries who were abandoned by their parents due to their condition. “Through Operation Smile you’re changing a kid’s life,” Ohebshalom said. These surgeries give children the chance to live a normal, happy life again. After hearing of this, Ohebshalom looked for a way to bring his love for sports and his desire to help children born with cleft palates together, and came up with what he called the Smile Shot Challenge. “It’s very simple,” Ohebshalom said. “All you have to do is go out, take your best shot and nominate three of your friends.” Ohebshalom recounted a story in

Great Neck North Nigh School rising senior Jared Ohebshalom (Contributed photo)

which one of his friends spent almost an hour and a half trying to record the perfect shot for his challenge. “We wanted to make it special,” he explained. “You don’t have to be the best. You just have to have the desire to help someone out, which I believe a lot of people in this world have, especially on Long Island”. Ohebshalom has personally done the challenge, as well as his coach and many of his friends. Now, Ohebshalom is hoping that the challenge will spread throughout Long Island and beyond. Ohebshalom called on his friends, family and community members to participate in the challenge, encouraging them to post their best shot and their smile afterward to his Instagram page, which currently has approximately 30 posts. He says his goal is to get kids and parents involved to spread the challenge and drum up more support for Operation Smile. On his Instagram page, @smileshot_ challenge, Ohebshalom has shared the link for a GoFundMe campaign he created to raise money for Operation Smile. So far, the campaign has raised almost $600 and Ohebshalom hopes that the number will continue to grow. “It’s actually saving lives,” Ohebshalom said about the donations. “It doesn’t have to be a huge contribution; every dollar counts.” A child can receive the life changing surgery they need for as little as $250. The Smile Shot Challenge provides a quick and fun way to spread awareness and raise money for children with cleft palates in impoverished countries. —Joe Vernice is a contributing writer for Anton Media Group

North Hempstead Highlights New Improvements At Gerry Pond Park

upervisor Judi Bosworth, Councilmember Veronica Lurvey and the town board are proud to highlight a variety of new improvements for Gerry Pond Park in Roslyn. Improvements to the park focused on water quality enhancements and dredging, along with beautification of the park. “These improvements ensure the longevity of Gerry Pond Park and make it a destination that visitors can enjoy for many years to come,” Bosworth said. “Not only do these upgrades enhance the beauty of our park, but they help our environment as well—a win-win. This Park is a true gem, and I am so pleased with the work that has been done to further accentuate its charm.” “While some of these improvements might not be noticeable to the human eye, they will go a long way in helping our parks and wildlife,” Lurvey said. “Gerry Pond was even featured by Newsday as one of the Island’s most picturesque picnic spots. We hope residents will come and see all of these improvements for

Despite these challenges, they were still able to complete the rigorous requirements. An Eagle project is a significant undertaking that involves planning, fundraising and organizing by the scout, who leads other scouts and adult volunteers in executing the

associated activity. The projects are geared to provide a benefit to local communities and organizations. Some of the beneficiaries from this year’s Troop 45 Eagle class were: Rushmore Avenue School in Carle Place, Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind campus in Smithtown, Corpus Christi in Mineola, Mineola Middle School, St. Aidan’s School and Parish in Williston Park, The Lutheran

Village’s Street Fair Returns This Fall BY ANTHONY MURRAY


he Village of New Hyde Park’s 24th annual Street Fair is officially back on Jericho Turnpike on Sept. 18 after a two-year hiatus. Back in 2019, the village held a Community Day event at Memorial Park instead of closing down the stretch of Jericho Turnpike between Covert Avenue and New Hyde Park Road. The reasoning behind the temporary cancellation of the annual street fair was because of the third track project that was happening on Covert Avenue, only a few blocks away from the fair. The former village board said that the Community Day event would avoid traffic and safety hazards from the construction. For obvious reasons, the street fair was canceled last year due to the pandemic. One of the attendees at this year’s street fair will be the Greater Chamber of Commerce of New Hyde Park. “We are happy to see this year that the Village of New Hyde Park has its wonderful street fair,” President of the Greater New Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce Cheryl Fajardo said. “The fair brings great exposure to our local businesses.

estbury residents who supported former Westbury Superintendent of Schools Eudes Budhai held a private gathering after graduation ceremonies on June 24. Parents, students (current and alumni) and community members met to give him a warm send-off and to present him with an award. “We also had the pleasure of being able to properly say goodbye to Maria Angelica Asilis Meyer, who also is leaving Westbury after many years of service, to pursue a position as assistant superintendent in Yonkers,” read a press release. “We presented her with a Certificate of Appreciation and many in attendance spoke of their positive experiences with Ms. Meyer over the years and her support of our community.” According to the press release, “We then presented with Mr. Budhai with a crystal award for the nearly two decades of service to the students of our community. Many in the room were eager to express their personal experiences with Mr. Budhai, either as

All in all, it was a very personal and emotive evening, and a magnificent way to say ‘good luck and farewell’ to two beloved members of the Westbury School District, and to show them that Westbury Love does not die with the end of a contract.” The Westbury School District Board of Education did not renew Budhai’s contract, which ended June 30 of this year, and instead announced a national search for a superintendent. It chose Tahira A. Dupree Chase to

succeed Budhai, who will become head of the Nyack schools on July 1. Chase was chosen from more than 30 candidates in a national search and previously headed the Greenburgh district in Westchester County. A press release announcing Budhai’s hiring by Nyack noted, “At Westbury he was instrumental in the passage of a $58.5 million bond referendum to expand schools as well as the passage of four budgets over $151 million. He increased family engagement and championed diversity, equity and inclusion. The high

school was recognized as one of 12 schools in New York State to achieve higher graduation rates than the state average—for students of color and for all students.” It continued, “The Nyack Board of Education selected Budhai because of his experience across every sector of school administration, from business to communications to special education, bilingual and dual-language programs, facilities management and more. Having successfully reopened schools during COVID-19, Budhai served as an expert earlier this year as part of a webinar focused on remote learning. Fluent in Spanish, Budhai is a nationally recognized expert on racial equity and inclusion, having spoken at seminars and conventions for the National Association for Bilingual Education, the New York State School Boards Association, the Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents and more. He has been awarded the Trailblazer in Education award by the Nassau County Executive and the Town of North Hempstead Hispanic in Leadership Award.”

Giving Half A Century Of Service Virtual Enterprise Companies Earn High Rank BY ANTON MEDIA GROUP STAFF editorial@antonmediagroup

The Village of Westbury used the occasion of the Memorial Day ceremony to honor two 50-year members of the Westbury Fire Department. Westbury Mayor Peter Cavallaro noted, “At Gettysburg, Abraham Lincoln said that we cannot really repay the debt of gratitude we have for those who died in the service of the nation. But he said that we as citizens have the obligation to live our lives to help our community, to benefit the community, and just to try to live up to the ideals that the people died for. And there is really no better example of that in our modern society than those who serve as firefighters in our community.” He then named two individuals who have served the department for half a century—ex-chief Walter Stewart and Kenneth Gass Sr. “I tell my wife all the time, and she really doesn’t like it when I say it—I can’t think of doing anything for 50 years,” Cavallaro observed. “But to serve as a firefighter for 50 years is truly a tremendously great thing to do for the community. According to bios prepared by the fire department: Stewart joined Hose Co. No. 1 on Aug. 1, 1971. He is currently

PROTECTING OUR WATER FOR TODAY AND THE FUTURE Nearly all the communities within the 11th Legislative District are situated along the shorelines of Hempstead Harbor, Manhasset Bay and Long Island Sound. This makes our efforts to reduce the levels of nitrogen and other contaminants found within these bodies of water especially important. Too much nitrogen causes algae to grow faster than aquatic ecosystems can process. Significant increases in algae harm water quality and food resources by depriving fish and other aquatic life of the oxygen they need to survive. Excess nitrogen can also contaminate our potable water by infiltrating Long Island’s sole-source freshwater aquifer. Here in Nassau County, we are continuing to explore and deploy natural processes to remove nitrogen and other harmful contaminants from waterways, and I am proud to have fought for and secured funding for critical upgrades

in District 11 and across Nassau County. Crescent Beach in Glen Cove, for example, has been closed for 10 years due to bacterial contaminants that have been found in the estuary that flows onto the beach. County-funded studies revealed that a natural solution utilizing sea-grass plantings would be feasible because of the way they can efficiently soak up harmful bacteria without harming the plants themselves. Thus far, enhancing plantings and re-routing some water flow to promote natural filtration has yielded positive results, and we are hopeful this will put Crescent Beach on the road to reopening at long last. We are also continuing to make long-term investments in pivotal sewer infrastructure. Three county contracts totaling nearly $20 million are delivering key upgrades such as new sewers in Sea Cliff, upgrades to the Glen Cove Wastewater Treatment and

Cedar Creek Waste Control Treatment Plants, and key upgrades to the bulkhead located along the Glen Cove Treatment Plant and Glen Cove Creek, being replaced to protect nearby waterways. The county is also dedicating resources to aid residents in areas outside of sewer coverage areas. SEPTIC (Septic Environmental Program to Improve Cleanliness) will provide grants to replace standard or failing systems with state-of-the-art alternative wastewater treatment systems, which are designed to provide a cost-effective and environmentally sound options for the thousands of businesses homeowners. Not only are they better for the environment, they’re more convenient because they require fewer pump-outs. Through a matching grant program presented in partnership with New York State, eligible Nassau County property owners can apply for up to $20,000 in grants

toward the installation of nitrogen-reducing septic systems. Nassau homeowners and small businesses that discharge less than 1,000 gallons a day of wastewater are eligible to apply. Visit septicreplace for details, including a list of provisionally approved manufacturers. Since we live so close to the water and our drinking water is literally beneath our feet, I will always remain vigilant in my oversight of matters impacting Nassau County’s environment and wastewater management infrastructure. Your insights are important, and I invite you to contact my office at 516-571-6211 or dderiggi whitton@nassaucountyny. gov with your questions and comments about how we can work together to build a better future for Nassau County. —From the Desk of Nassau County Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton

Bethpage State Park—Jewel Of Long Island Long Island, the longest island on the U.S. mainland, is a crown jewel packed with activities. From the beautiful preserves, outstanding wineries of the North and South Fork, to boating and surfing on the Atlantic Ocean. Along with deep-sea fishing, inshore anglers have abundant choices with the fresh and saltwater inlets and bays. When seeking land adventure, the diamond of Long Island sits on 1,477-acres—Bethpage State Park. The park’s cluster of activities includes the polo fields, the Bikeway, mountain biking trails, picnic area, recreational fields, championship golf courses and hiking trails. All of this along with a deep and interesting history. In 1687, Puritan Thomas Powell purchased 15 square miles of land from local Indian tribes in an acquisition referred to as The Bethpage Purchase. Centuries later, Benjamin Franklin Yoakam, a wealthy railroad executive, acquired 1,368 acres in 1912. He had the Green Course built and opened it in 1923. In 1931, The Long Island State Park Commission purchased an option on the property. With unemployment rampant, a piece of 1933 legislation put forth by then-Parks

Program is just the start of a long multi-year process. The initial approval to enter the “project development” phase is only the first step and the project still faces myriad hurdles. Completion of this work includes the FTA issuing an environmental finding, along with reaching agreements with Nassau County concerning proposed project budget, scope and milestones. This averages several years. This is followed by the project being given permission by the FTA to advance to the next stage known as “final engineering.” Progression of final design and engineering from 30 to 100 percent averages several more years. This could include review and approval

authorization and appropriation of funding under FTA New Starts budgets to finance the FFGA. There can be no FFGA without documentation that the local recipients (Nassau County) share is in place. How would Nassau County come up with $300 million to leverage $150 million in federal dollars, assuming a total project cost of $450 million? Would Nassau County contribute $150 million and ask Albany for $150 million resulting in a three way 33 percent county/state/federal cost sharing agreement? Based on the lack of progress to date, Nassau County may be unable to obtain federal New Starts funding

could be easily several hundred million dollars, depending upon the transportation mode and route(s) selected. Some have estimated a $450 million total cost. One potential source of funding is the FTA discretionary competitive New Starts program. This project is not included in the latest FTA May 2021 New Starts Report for upcoming federal fiscal year 2022. After 16 years of planning, the project has not being admitted into the New Starts process. This is bad news.

How long would the Nassau County Interim Finance Authority take before providing approval? Successful completion of the New Starts process results in the federal government’s entering into a Full Funding Grant Agreement (FFGA). This third step can take up to one year more. The FFGA is the legally binding commitment for providing federal funding. It is also subject to congressional recommendation and presidential approval for inclusion of the project within future annual

WE USE CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY Now more than ever, we can count on the latest, exciting technology to help achieve the best possible cosmetic surgery results. We are each confronted by the media with hundreds of alternatives to helping improve our appearance, regain our youth and tone up our bodies. The reality is that the true secret to maintaining a youthful look is paying attention to the basic issues that you can control – getting adequate sleep, drinking plenty of water, watching your diet and finding the time to exercise. What many of us find, however, is that this quest for beautiful skin and a beautiful body can be quite frustrating. We can help you obtain the look that you are striving for by using the available advancements in technology to assist you in attaining your goals. If you are interested in looking thinner and shapelier, consider Dr. Greenberg’s revolutionary Plasma Lipo™, a perfect combination of body contouring procedures. Plasma Lipo™ is a liposuction system that offers a revolutionary and minimally invasive procedure for the removal of fat with less downtime and fewer side effects than traditional liposuction. It is performed utilizing plasma technology to obtain better skin

retraction resulting in a tighter abdomen, thighs, arms, chest and neck. The newest technology for hair restoration is NeoGraft, which is the first and only Class One FDA Listed automated medical system for hair restoration. This system harvests, collects, and implants individual follicular grafts for a natural look. Follicular unit extraction is an advanced, minimally-invasive hair transplant method which allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the donor area without a scalpel incision or the necessary stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar. Results are natural and permanent hair growth. Neograft can be performed with PRP Therapy for more dramatic results. Another avenue to consider when pursuing your desire to look younger are “injectables”, which are effective in reducing lines and wrinkles on the face, without surgery. Botox and Dysport as well as dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane will provide a refreshed and more youthful look quickly. What better time than now to work on getting ready for your ideal shape? Remember, the perfect cosmetic surgery package can help create the perfect you.

This is a theme puzzle with the subject stated below. Find the listed words in the grid. (They may run in any direction but always in a straight line. Some letters are used more than once.) Ring each word as you find it and when you have completed the puzzle, there will be 24 letters left over. They spell out the alternative theme of the puzzle.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The most effective attitude will be to take up a cause as if it were your own. You’ll quickly realize the truth of the matter. It is your own. Your liberation is bound up with a grand emancipation. All are free, or none is. The traps can only be released by working together. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People can pilfer power in a multitude of sneaky ways. Seduction is a fun one. Sensationalism is another, causing you to look. Once you see, you can never unsee. Don’t give away your power. Stay vigilant in the protection of your attention and energy. Surround yourself with those who bring out your best.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). While silence includes the absence of sound, golden silence makes even more space, spreading out a soft place for all to land. You’ll choose your words carefully, and your nonverbal responses even more so. You’ll often walk in nonjudgment and the welcoming emotional tone of gentle acceptance. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Awareness and action go together. This is why our minds often protect us from information, storing it in the subconscious until we’re ready for it. Realizations can be painful rites of passage. They indicate we’re finally strong enough to do something about the circumstance. Here comes your aha moment.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ve had the thought, “My life is entirely up to me,” and you’ve had the thought, “I’m trapped.” You’ve also believed in numerous variations along the free will spectrum, like, “I’m free, but this is hard.” How can you make it easier? An empowering thought process will help you claim the experiences you crave. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you’re afraid to go against the tribe’s wishes, consider that such a thing may not exist. The tribe cannot wish; only people can, and each person does it differently. Some wishes mesh, and others don’t. Arguing over it is a waste of time. Let your agenda play out in swift and loving action, and all will be well. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Rules, spoken and unspoken, will be obeyed. People will do as they are allowed to do. Change allowances and people change. Structuring interactions is an art requiring thought, practice, experimentation, adjustment, application -- rinse and repeat. What works in one era may not in the next. Keep finding what works. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Kindness is among the top attractive qualities, though it is often knocked down the list by flashier qualities such as courage. Having the courage to be kind when others aren’t will enable you to claim both qualities and activate a deep primal preference in others who will be inspired by and attracted to you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It takes a lot of energy to think, which is why overthinking is really an egregious waste. When you start repeating thoughts, get creative instead. Seek answers to the left and right; reach up; root down. Change the pattern and you’ll interrupt the swirl of energy headed down the drain. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Because you seek to understand a situation better, the rules of active listening will apply in crucial moments of the week. The hardest one to swallow: Anything your partner says is OK. When you hold a purpose of helping your partner get clear (instead of communicating your own agenda) you’ll make progress.


All through this new solar journey, your imagination flows and your capabilities grow. You’ll remember what you wanted things to be like before you knew what they were really like, and you’ll mine brilliant creative diamonds in this memory. You’ll create experiences that echo and answer your past expectations. Friends offer resources; mentors show you how to use them. You’ll invest in help, and eventually, the next generation will build on the things you manifest this year. COPYRIGHT 2021 CREATORS.COM

Solution: The printer needs more toner

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’d normally execute hundreds of actions in response to cues so subtle they speak only to your subconscious. But this week marks an awakening. You clearly see the most difficult thing of all to comprehend -- the environment you live in every day. A better way forward opens before your eyes.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll have the flexibility to weather any change thrown your way. You’ll handle things like an action star in a fantastically choreographed fight scene, dodging blows and using the felicitous arrangement of your surroundings to help your cause. These are the battle stories you’ll remember fondly upon the return of calm.
