Levittown Library’s Steward Of Knowledge BY DAVE GIL DE RUBIO
merican essayist and former Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress Rita Dove once said, “The library is an arena of possibility, opening both a window into the soul and a door onto the world.” It is a sentiment Trina Reed has taken to heart ever since she applied for a library card at the Philadelphia Free Library at the tender age of four once she learned how to sign her name. As someone who has tirelessly assisted and educated whatever communities she’s served, the current Levittown Public Library Director was recently recognized for her efforts by the Nassau County and Suffolk County Library Associations, which tapped Reed as the 2020 recipient of the LDA Award for Excellence in Library Achievement. This annual award is given in recognition of long lasting achievement in the library field, with an emphasis on leaders who inspire and implement forward-thinking, innovative advancements. Normally presented at the Long Island Library Conference as part of a large event featuring a guest speaker, the most recent ceremony was held over Zoom. It was nonetheless a very humbling experience for Reed. “I’m excited to have received the award,” she said. “There have been so many wonderful things the staff and I have been able to do together. I say it that way because no person can do this alone and I could not do this without their support.” Reed’s current career path began after spending time as a military brat living all over the United States before her family settled on Long Island. She got her first library-related job as a page at the Hempstead Public Library. Throughout high school, Reed’s interest in fashion led to her receiving a Bachelor of Science degree from the Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science in 1991, all while working a library side hustle. Eventually, the lure of being a steward of knowledge won out. “While I was in college, I did summer internships in the field and worked after class in various retail establishments,” she recalled. “But I continued working at the library the whole time. I went from being a page to a clerk and doing data entry as libraries were moving into the online phase. I realized that my heart was really with the library and I did not

where everyone got a chance to learn the basics of how to use the different equipment,” she said. The Innovation Station’s broad functionality enables patrons to access new technology, including but not limited to computers, software, digital and electronic formats, media, 3D printers, cooking and sewing equipment that’s meant to appeal to a broad swath of users. Pre-pandemic, it was able to accommodate 25 users. With current COVID-19 restrictions, that number has been reduced to 10. It’s a resource whose versatility Reed is understandably proud of. “With the Innovation Station, we’ve done everything from holding field trips for our local elementary schools and having the special needs population come in and do crafts to having Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts use the kitchen part of the facility and learn kitchen safety,” she said. “It’s definitely a multi-purpose room where we get to do a lot.” Always striving to improve the experience users have at this crucial community space, Reed has also successfully undertaken numerous building improvements, including a quiet study, an eatery, window replacements, a redesign of the Children’s Room, bathroom remodeling for increased accessibility and the current interior/exterior construction project that is slated for a tentative grand opening in January 2022 depending on whatever pandemic restrictions might be in place at the time. Getting through the coronavirus has been and continues to be priority number one for Reed in her current position. “Going forward from here, we are focusing on navigating through this COVID-19 crisis by taking from the lessons that we learned,” she said. “For instance, how can we continue to properly serve the people that received digital cards that may not have ever stepped foot in the building? We’re always staying in the forefront of what library service we can offer next and looking at the needs of our community.” The Levittown Public Library is located at 1 Bluegrass Lane.

Parents Debate Mask Policy Ahead Of Glen Cove School’s First Day BY JENNIFER CORR
ith the first day of school for Glen Cove City School District students quickly approaching on Sept. 2, some parents are nervous about having their child wear a mask during class after doing so all of last school year. Superintendent Dr. Maria L. Rianna during the summer sent out a letter to the community stating that the district will follow the Center for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and will require all students and staff to wear their masks while indoors. The letter also stated that there will not be a remote option for students this year. “As the new governor takes over, we are expecting by way of conversations that she’s had already that she will provide guidance and/ or mandates in regards to school openings,” Rianna said during the Aug. 18 Board of Education meeting. “We await that information and will make adjustments as necessary.” But during the public discussion, just like during the discourse around students wearing masks all across Long Island, some parents expressed their disagreement with the mask wearing policy. Daniel Rios took to the
podium to reference articles he saw that challenged the effectiveness of masks. “Some of you do not see, even though your children may adapt well, the difficulty and the problems of wearing masks, especially for fifth grade and under,” Rios said. “That age is when they’re most affected. I do not think you’re doing your work honestly if you think masks work. I think it’s upsetting to me. I think it’s upsetting to a lot of the public that you do not see this.” Lauren Bannon of Glen Cove expressed discomfort of having her incoming kindergartner having to learn behind partitions around his desk while wearing a mask. “Our family has so much
anxiety and stress about him entering kindergarten, just for him entering kindergarten, and then everything coming with it,” Bannon said. “We are so concerned about his little body sitting at a desk with barricades and a mask and not gathering information... I can’t even drop my kid off into the school because of everything going on.” She then asked the Board of Education if they could leave the mask wearing up to the parents. “We consider the health and safety of all of our students and all of our staff,” Rianna said in response. “Bringing your child to kindergarten on a normal year is anxiety ridden for a lot of parents, but I do want to
All About Masks Face masks, combined with other preventative measures, such as getting vaccinated, frequent hand-washing and physical distancing, can help slow the spread of the virus. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends fabric masks for the general public. The CDC says that N95 masks should be reserved for health care providers.
How do different types of masks work? Medical masks: Also called surgical masks, these are loose fitting disposable masks. They’re meant to protect the wearer from contact with droplets and sprays that may contain germs. A medical mask also filters out large particles in the air when the wearer breathes in. To make a medical mask more form-fitting, knot the ear loops where they attach to the mask. Then fold and tuck the unneeded material under the edges.
Cloth masks: A cloth mask is intended to trap respiratory droplets that are released when the wearer talks, coughs or sneezes. It also acts as a barrier to protect the wearer from inhaling droplets released by others. The most effective cloth masks are made of multiple layers of tightly woven fabric like cotton. A mask with layers will stop more droplets from getting through your mask or escaping from it.
assure you that our staff, our principals welcomed children under COVID conditions in a very positive manner. We had mask breaks throughout the day. We have guaranteed that there are assistants in the class. We have planned as many outdoor instructional activities as possible. We’ll continue to consider all information before the start of school.” Trustee Angela Raimo added that she has a child that was in elementary school and one entering kindergarten as well, and that she was shocked last year at how easily the children adapted to the COVID-19 regulations. “I thought the masks and the barricades would be nerve wracking, but they did so well and they spent so much time outside,” Raimo said. “They loved it. They loved having lunch and snack outside and
experiencing the garden. They did a great job and I think the kids will do very well, just like they did last year.” Board president Lia Leone also assured Bannon that the faculty at Glen Cove’s elementary school are “fantastic.” “I’m telling you within a week you’ll find out that you have zero to worry about,” Leone said. “I’ve been a teacher myself for 23 years, so I’m living this as a parent, a teacher and as a board member and I get your frustrations. It’s so unfortunate that we have to be doing this, but I do think that the kids are really in good hands and are well taken care of.”

Plainview Residents Hold Fundraiser For ALS
he Wurtzel family is inviting the community to join them in their walk to defeat ALS. The fundraiser and walk is in memory of Elan Wurtzel’s mother-inlaw and Gail Wurtzel’s loving mother Miriam Hanania. This year’s Walk event will be held on Sept. 25. Due to the pandemic, however, the Wurtzel team will be participating in the ALS Walk from Home--an online fundraising event. “I want to continue to honor
Miriam and help raise money to make a difference in the lives of those affected by ALS,” Wurtzel said. “Despite her difficult battle with three major cancers and then ALS, my wife’s heroic mother, Miriam, never stopped fighting to survive for her family, whom she loved so much. However, in May 2012, Miriam lost her battle with ALS, but not before leaving her family and friends with wonderful and touching moments and memories.”
ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a nervous system disease that weakens muscles and impacts physical function. Nerve cells break down, which reduces functionality in the muscles they supply. “I formed my team to honor my mother’s memory,” Gail Wurtzel said. “She was a beautiful woman and despite how ALS weakened her, her spirit and will to live remained strong to the end. Everywhere you turned during the walk, you saw, heard and
felt that same spirit in family members, supporters and sufferers of ALS. It was a very uplifting day” The Wurtzel family is hoping the community will support them through donations to the ALS Association as they march with team.

The Story Of Swedetown
n Aug. 11 there was a dedication and reveal of another historical marker in Bethpage for Swedetown. This is a tribute to Central Park Historical Society’s Executive Board Member, Bob Albertson and the story of Swedetown. Albertson was proud of the town where he was born, grew up, and when he married this was where he wanted to settle and raise his family. He was born in Central Park, but by the end of his first year, 1936, the town had a name change. The people had been looking for a more suitable name for the hamlet, and it was now decided Bethpage, the original biblical name of the area and the newly named state park was a good fit. Albertson was full of pride when he acknowledged his grandparents - Robert and Alma (Salo) Knapp - as they purchased a home in Swedetown in 1915 as a summer home which later became their permanent residence. Here they raised their family Impi Ilma (Peggy), Annalisa (Betty), John and Helen and provided a home and loving family for Eino and William. Today, the fifth generation of the Knapp family still lives in Bethpage. Those who settled the area of north LAURA CURRAN

Central Park, in the early 1900’s, were mainly from the Scandinavian area of northern Europe. The people of the Nordic countries shared strong cultural and historical traits and they bonded. The area where the Scandinavians settled was now referred to as Swedetown. The area recognized today would be north of Cherry Avenue, east of Stewart Avenue, west of Plainview Road (and today the 135 Expressway) and south of Plainview. A Scandinavian-American Club of North Central Park was organized in 1919, as a social group, and it was
disbanded in November and reorganized as the Central Park North Civic Association. Here they celebrated with a Scandinavian-American Midsummer Dance. The celebration lasted for three days and people from neighboring towns joined in the festivities. The Midsummer Dance was an annual event. The Central Park North Civic Association was responsible for improved roads, street lighting, improved water service, postal delivery and establishing the Annual Children’s Christmas Party with the Scandinavian
Santa presenting each child with a gift. The Central Park North Civic Association minutes came to a standstill in 1959 and the clubhouse, located on Stewart Avenue, is now the sanctuary of Saint Isidoro’s Greek Orthodox Church. Over the years the area continues to flourish. No more open fields for children to play in, gather berries and wildflowers for the picking. Well planned homes have sprung up, parks for children to play in, neighborhood schools, and streets named for war heroes. —Submitted by The Central Park North Civic Association

With heavy rain and flash flood warnings a common occurrence over the past few weeks and the prospect of additional storms throughout hurricane season, Insurance.com explains how flood insurance works and advises on the importance of purchasing appropriate protection in advance of any flooding. “With flooding the most common natural disaster in the U.S., it is critically important that homeowners and renters understand how to buy flood insurance,” explained Les Masterson, managing editor for Insurance.com. “If you want flood protection, it’s essential to purchase a separate flood policy, since damage from rising water is excluded from standard home insurance coverage and those without flood protection risk being underinsured.”
Unique aspects of flood insurance include:
• It is generally not possible to buy a policy and benefit from it immediately when a storm is on its way, due to a standard waiting period between acquiring protection and the start of any coverage period. • Flood insurance rates do not vary between insurers on standard flood policies. • The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) allows people to buy up to $250,000 for home protection and $100,000 for property or contents. • Consumers can choose their deductible amount.

Hicksville Water District And Town Of Oyster Bay Reach Plant Sweeping Agreement
he Hicksville Water District (HWD) and the Town of Oyster Bay recently entered into an intermunicipal agreement for the town to provide two annual street sweeping services at each of the district’s water supply and treatment facilities. In exchange, the district will provide annual testing for 12 Town-owned backflow devices within the district’s service area. “The Hicksville Water District and the Town of Oyster Bay have an extensive history of working together for the betterment of our residents and this intermunicipal agreement is no different,” HWD Chairman Karl Schweitzer said. “From the perspective of the district,
Municipalities working together to keep Hicksville’s water infrastructure clean this is a smart, reciprocal agreement that will greatly improve our ability to better maintain the grounds of our water production and treatment facilities while also ensuring a dozen of the town’s backflow prevention devices are operating correctly for the continued health and safety of our residents.” Maintaining the cleanliness and appearance of the district’s facilities goes a long way in supporting their mission to provide residents with high-quality water service. Having the grounds around the facilities routinely cleaned ensures that they are not only more aesthetically
pleasing for the surrounding residents, but also that the removal of trash, plants and other potentially disruptive materials that make its way
onto these sites is removed. The backflow tests that the District will be providing in return plays a crucial role in protecting the community’s drinking water from potentially harmful substances like lawn fertilizers. “The Town of Oyster Bay is proud to partner with the Hicksville Water District on this shared services initiative that will increase overall efficiency, eliminate duplication, streamline operations and result in real cost savings for our residents,” Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino said. “I am proud that the town will be partnering with the
Hicksville Water District under this intermunicipal agreement that will provide annual backflow testing of 12 Town-owned backflow devices within the District’s service area,” Town of Oyster Bay Councilman Tom Hand said. “Maintaining our backflow devices is hugely important as any potential problem could affect the cleanliness of our water, and negatively impact the overall health and safety of our community. My thanks again to our friends at the Hicksville Water District for partnering on this shared services initiative that will keep our community safe.” —Submitted by the Hicksville Water District
MS-13 Member Sentenced To 20 Years To Life In Prison For 2017 Murder
Antonio Cullal used machete to kill victim at Massapequa Park Preserve The Nassau County District Attorney’s Office recently announced that a Hempstead man was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison for his role in the 2017 murder of Julio Cesar EspantzayGonzales in the Massapequa Park Preserve. Twenty-six-year-old Antonio Cullal, a.k.a Duke, pleaded guilty on June 15 before Judge Helene Gugerty to murder in the second degree (an A-I felony) and conspiracy in the second degree (a B felony). The defendant was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison. “Antonio Cullal and other MS-13 gang members followed the orders they were given by the gang hierarchy and killed Julio Cesar Espantzay-Gonzales simply because the gang believed he was their ‘enemy,’” Acting DA Joyce Smith said. “They

Museum To Hold Star-Studded Benefit Art Auction
ore than 100 important works of art will be on the auction block Sept. 1-17 including a rare Salvador Dali portfolio as well as pieces by Sam Francis, Hunt Slonem, Takashi Murakami, Christo, Roy Lichtenstein, Larry Rivers, Yoshitomo Nara, Doug Argue, Ben Schonzeit, Barbara Ernst Prey, Susan Cushing, Helen Frankenthaler and many others. The art, which goes on view online Sept. 1 and can be viewed live starting Sept. 7 at the Museum’s Manes Center, is drawn from the Museum’s own collection as well as donations from some of the internationally renowned contemporary artists who have shown at the Museum during its 30-year history. Buyers can register online beginning Sept. 1 at ncma.betterworld.org/auctions/ nassau-county-museum-art-benefit. The bidding will close at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 17. Two factors make this a special event. It will directly benefit the ambitious plans of the Museum to continue mounting major shows on the level of the current blockbuster, Andy Warhol: A Life in Pop. The other attraction is authenticity. Collectors at all levels, including newcomers to the art market, will benefit from the assurance that the works they are acquiring have the most secure provenance possible. The art market today is red hot, but many fakes and scams abound especially online. By offering works from its own distinguished collection, as well as those donated fresh from the studios of important artists (many of whom are local), the Museum removes many of the risks of buying art. With prices for fine art rising so fast, great values on art works
Jeff Koons, Balloon Dog (Blue), 2002 with impeccable provenance are almost impossible to find. The Museum is taking advantage of the upsurge in the market as well as new rules governing the deaccessioning of works of art from the permanent collection which were instituted during the pandemic in order to help cover losses, such as customary revenues from events such as galas. While the property remained open for the public seeking outdoor recreation and refreshment, and the Museum reopened in July, it has been difficult to raise funds from donations in the usual way. With the generous support of many local artists, whose contributions to the auction are 100 percent intended to benefit the Museum, the sale will be the Museum’s major fundraising event of the year. Bidding opens September 1. Viewing of the works at the Manes Center of the Museum begins Tuesday, Sept. 7 and continues daily from 1 to 4 p.m. (or private viewing by appointment). Museum experts will
be on hand to discuss the works and offer tips to collectors on how to bid in an auction.

Tennis Star Gives Back To The Community BY RACHEL DOBKIN
esha Kaushik is not only winning championships on the Syosset High School Varsity Tennis team, but also building up a community of underprivileged child tennis players. Tennis Empower Camp, created by Kaushik, is a camp meant to “serve children of our community who may not have the opportunity or the means to pursue tennis,” Kaushik went on, “By providing children this opportunity they are likely to feel more connected to the community, have higher self-esteem, and become healthier and happier.” Kaushik started playing tennis at the age of four and has dreams of pursuing it in college. “I have been playing on my high school’s varsity team for the past two years and truly enjoy the kinship and camaraderie of playing in a team environment and would love to do the same in college,” said Kaushik. She plays first singles on the SHS Varsity team and this year helped the team win the Nassau County Championship where Kaushik earned All County Honors.
Kaushik felt so grateful to have the opportunity to improve her tennis skills with the support of her coaches. She noticed that many kids aren’t as fortunate as her and she wanted to change that. She said, “I felt that one way I can make a difference was to pay it forward and use my talents and channel my efforts to empower underprivileged children through tennis.” Using the digital age to her advantage, Kaushik created a website and social media account to help market her newly developed camp. She then contacted family friends, coaches and tennis shops for support. This then led to donations in the form of money, used racquets and

Town Scores Second Upgrade In One Week From Wall Street
ontinuing its ongoing success in improving Town of Oyster Bay’s finances, Supervisor Joseph Saladino and the town board announce that yet another Wall Street agency has upgraded the town’s bond rating. Moody’s Investors Service assigned the Town an ‘A3’ rating, reflecting continued improvements to the town’s financial position. This marks the sixth credit rating upgrade since Saladino took office just four years ago, and even more impressively, the fourth during the COVID pandemic. This great news assists the town and its residents tremendously, as the town will now pay significantly less money in interest expense when bonding for the costs associated with road repaving and other critical infrastructure improvements. “For the second time in just one week, Wall Street has recognized the town’s continuing commitment and success in repairing the town’s finances,” Saladino said. “We are so proud that all of the hard work to restore our financial integrity has been successfully recognized. All of our efforts to restrict spending, significantly pay down debt while maintaining a tax cut have demonstrated that we keep our promises to protect taxpayers while delivering all the important services
they deserve.” Acknowledging the town’s ‘modest debt’ and rapid reparation of its finances, Moody’s praised the town’s combination of sensible budgetary actions, recent cost cutting and current policies and practices. They specifically recognized ‘strong measures taken by management to reverse the past history of poor budgeting and structural imbalance,’ and acknowledged ‘dramatic improvement.’ Additionally, the report noted that the town’s ‘2020 surplus is more impressive even than it appears at first blush.’ The report credited the town for budget trimming
even at the height of the pandemic, though Oyster Bay did not receive any CARES Act money. Since taking office in 2017, Saladino and the town board have cut property taxes while reducing debt and the operational budget deficit. In fact, the 2019, 2020 and 2021 town budgets sustained the $1.3 million property tax cut approved by the town board for 2018 by implementing a plan that froze taxes. As a result, $5.2 million is in the pockets of taxpayers rather than the coffers of government. Total town debt has also declined by a historic $165 million. In addition,
Saladino and the town board successfully eliminated a multi-year operational deficit which hit a high of $44 million under the prior administration, turning it into a $47.6 million surplus as of Dec. 31, 2020. This was the fourth straight surplus achieved by the Saladino administration. As a result of this combined success, the New York State Comptroller’s Office removed the Town of Oyster Bay from its fiscal stress-monitoring list for the first time since the program’s inception in 2013. —Submitted by Town of Oyster Bay

Marching Band Captures Disney Magic “O ld-School Disney” is the theme for Massapequa High School’s marching band show for the 2021 season. More than 60 students spent three days rehearsing the music and their moves during the summer marching band camp from Aug. 10 to 12. Band director Eva Arnold said that they chose a Disney theme because Massapequa High School music and art students will be taking a trip to Disney World in February. The marching band’s set will include older songs
like the “Mickey Mouse March” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” They will perform their show at least five times this season including at the Newsday Marching Band Festival in October at Mitchel Field and during halftime for the four home varsity football games, plus potential playoff games. On the football field, band members worked on basic marching technique as well as their choreography, before retreating to the comfort of the air conditioning in the band

Seaford High School musicians will take a step back in time, about two decades before they were born, for this year’s marching band show. The theme is “Seaford High School of Rock of Ages” and the show will feature numerous rock songs from the 1980s. Band directors Christopher Coniglio and Anthony Romeo said some of this year’s selections will include “Wanted Dead or Alive” by Bon Jovi, “Crazy Train” by Ozzy Osbourne and “Jump” by Van Halen. Students rehearsed the music and practiced the choreography during marching band camp from Aug. 9 to 13. In addition to Coniglio and Romeo,

band teachers Nicholas Coacci, Daniel Krueger and Barbara Sherwin worked with the musicians during the five-day camp. While the marching band and color guard members spent part of the morning out on the football field, members of the pit band were in the band room with music teacher Frank Battista. This year’s show features a stationary pit band with a guitar, keyboard, drum set and auxiliary percussion instruments, as opposed to the drum line, for the rock music show. This year’s show will be performed at the Newsday Marching Band Festival in October at Mitchel Field and during the halftime ceremony of the four home varsity football games, plus potential playoff games. The band’s drum majors are senior Aurora Fitzgerald and junior Kerry Wise. There were other elements to the band camp including the Romiglio Olympics (named for Romeo and Coniglio), with students split into teams based on their instrument sections. They competed in various events like a field goal-kicking contest, charades relay races and a lip sync battle. The camp concluded with a Friday evening performance on the football field for family members. —Submitted by the Seaford School District

Update On Third Track Work In The Village BY ANTHONY MURRAY firstname.lastname@example.org
he Village of New Hyde Park is almost at the finish line when it comes to the third track project that has been in process across the village for the past three years. This past month, 3TC, who are the design-build contractors for the project, installed ballast along the south side of the right of way to support the future installation of the third track from Covert Avenue to the New Hyde Park station. For those who might not know what ballast is, it serves as a bed for rail road tracks and provides stability, drainage and support for LIRR trains. Crews install the stone in layers by placing it and tamping it down with
a tamping machine, followed by a roller that smooths out the ballast. This noticeable operation is done to create a consistent, flat surface for the future third track. Ballast was also installed from Plainfield Avenue to the east end of the Floral Park Recreation Center in Floral Park. When it comes to the South 12th Street underpass, crews worked to relocate underground utilities from South 12th Street to South 11th. Construction on the South 12th Street underpass is expected to be completed sometime this fall. The ADA compliant underSouth 12th Street is expected to reopen later this fall.

he pandemic in 2020 reduced Westbury’s annual Feast of the Assumption to the traditional Mass at St. Brigid Church and a short procession. The 111th edition, held Aug. 13-15 at Dell’Assunta Society parking lot, was a return to the festivities of the past. “The feast was scaled down compared to pre-2020, but more than last year,” said Society member and photographer Michael Lettera. “We had good attendance at Mass and feast evenings.” In addition to honoring the Blessed Mother, the feast delivered Italian food, rides, a casino and an auction. According to its website, “This benevolent society was originally founded in 1911 by Italian immigrants from Durazzano, Naples, Nola and Saviano. The founding members wanted to preserve both their Italian cultural heritage and Catholic religious traditions. For over a century the Dell’Assunta Society has proudly honored the Blessed Mother and contributed to many charitable causes in both the Roman Catholic Church and in our local community.” Visit www.dellassuntasosietyofwestbury.com.

WE LOVE OUR PETS
Keeping Your Pets Safe During A Disaster BY ANTON MEDIA STAFF email@example.com
he best way to protect your family from the effects of a disaster is to have a disaster plan. If you are a pet owner, that plan must include your pets. Being prepared can save their lives. Different disasters require different responses. But whether the disaster is a hurricane or a hazardous spill, you may have to evacuate your home. In the event of a disaster, if you must evacuate, the most important thing you can do to protect your pets is to evacuate them. Leaving pets behind, even if you try to create a safe place for them, is likely to result in their being injured, lost or worse. So prepare now for the day when you and your pets may have to leave your home.
A Safe Place
Nassau County has implemented a co-sheltering program, which allows residents and their pets to be housed in the same facility with the County Animal Response Team (CART). Under the co-sheltering program, owners will be housed in a separate portion of the building at Nassau Community College, but provided easy access to their pets. Owners will be issued identification bracelets linking them to their pets. Volunteers will operate the
shelter, but less oversight will be necessary since owners are allowed to feed, exercise and interact with pets. Most other disaster shelters cannot accept pets because of state health and safety regulations and other considerations. Service Animals who assist people with disabilities are generally the only animals allowed in those disaster shelters. Town shelters and other animal shelters will generally have limited to no available room for owned animals during an emergency and should not be counted on to take your

animal. It may be difficult, if not impossible, to find shelter for your animals in the midst of a disaster, so plan ahead.
Shelters: Last Resort
Contact hotels and motels outside your immediate area to check policies on accepting pets and restrictions on number, size, and species. Ask if “no pet” policies could be waived in an emergency. Keep a list of “pet friendly” places, including phone numbers, with other disaster information and supplies. If you have advance notice, call for reservations.
Ask friends, relatives or others outside your immediate area whether they could shelter your animals in an emergency. Prepare a list of boarding facilities and veterinarians outside the affected area who could shelter animals in an emergency; include 24-hour phone numbers.
Keep a collar and I.D. tag on your pets at all times (this includes cats that never go outdoors). During a disaster, a pet can escape. A collar and tag can increase your
Assemble A Portable Pet Disaster Supplies Kit Whether you are away from home for a day or a week, you’ll need essential supplies. Keep items in an accessible place and store them in sturdy containers that can be easily carried (e.g. duffel bags, covered trash containers, etc.).
Food, Water Bowls, Cat Litter/Pan And Can Opener Have at least a week’s supply of pet food and water on hand at all times for your pets. Store the dry food in airtight waterproof containers. If you use canned food, buy the flip top cans or have a can opener in your airtight disaster supply container. Keep
some of your pet’s favorite treats on hand. Pets become stressed during a disaster too, and a treat provides them some comfort. Also keep a supply of cat litter for the cats in your household and keep a clean litter scoop in your disaster kit.
chance of getting the animal back. On the tag, include your phone number and address. Remember the phones may not be working, so in order to reunite you with your pet, an address is necessary.
As Disaster Nears
Sometimes warnings are issued hours, even days, in advance. At the first hint of disaster, act to protect your pet. Call ahead to confirm emergency shelter arrangements for you and your pets. Check that your pet disaster supplies are ready to take at a moment’s notice. Bring all pets into the house so that you won’t have to search for them if you have to leave in a hurry. Close as many doors as possible to limit search areas. Make sure all dogs and cats are wearing collars. Planning and preparation will enable you to evacuate with your pets quickly and safely. But bear in mind that animals react differently under stress. Outside your home and in the car, keep dogs securely leashed. Transport cats, rabbits in carriers, birds and other small animals in cages. Visit www.longislandweekly.com/hurricane-prepare-pets for the full version on this advisory.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR SUPPORTING BEN & JERRY’S BOYCOTT I’m not a big fan of boycotts in general—I’m 75 percent Irish (Dad was off the boat) and tried to give up tea in protest to the brutal treatment of the Irish by the British (basically Margaret Thatcher.) It didn’t do any good. A real change never happened until she left office. By that time, of course, I had gone back to drinking good English tea. But, I don’t think the Jewish people have a cause here. I pay a lot of attention (being 25 percent Lebanese—the Catholic kind like Danny Thomas), so I’m not directly involved with the people you want to deprive of ice cream. They are the victims of the Jews and there’s a very long
history of it. When there’s a right wing government all hell breaks loose, with the Arabs being the primary victims. But when there’s a left wing government in Israel things go smoothly. This is all documented in history; you should check it out. The Arabs helped us win WWI and in return, they were given the land now in dispute. Unfortunately, after they were given the land, Lord Balfour—whoever he is—in The Balfour Declaration, gave it again, but he gave it to the Jewish people. God knows after what they went through, they needed a country. But it didn’t need to be someone else’s country. They flooded
into the disputed territory, as terrorists. The peace-loving Arabs were put out of their homes and off the property they were farming since the end of the last war. They were put out of the gardens that they were working successfully for a living. Since then, they have been basically corralled. Israel bombards them with rockets on a regular basis— when, like now there’s a right wing regime in power. During times the left is in power there is no fighting regime. Recap: The Arabs are the victims and the Jews the aggressors during periods when the right wing is in charge. In other years, there’s no real problem. There may be an
increase in the problem in the future due to just how bad the Arabs are being treated. I still can’t believe that you don’t want them to have ice cream. I think that if you can’t figure out what is really going on, you should mind your own business. This is all documented information - you can verify everything I am saying. And why wouldn’t you give credit to anything the Jewish founders of Ben and Jerry’s say? Do you think that they don’t know what they are doing? Do you think that they don’t know what is going on there? They are Jewish, and thankfully liberal instead of hard*** right wing Jews. —Penny Quinn

The Battle Of Long Island The battle was ferocious, the largest fought during The Revolutionary War recording the highest casualties of the war. Brilliant and botched military tactics molded the battle. The real story is about the Continental Army. Untrained regiments, including colonial militiamen, volunteer troops loyal to individual states, farmers and adventure seekers battling the powerful British Army and Navy. On August 27, 1776, The Battle of Long Island, also known as The Battle of Brooklyn, took place. The first engagement of the war started with the “shot heard around the world” sounding in April 1775 with the battles of Lexington and Concord. A year later, March 1776, the Continental Army and New England militia forced the British from Boston. General George Washington, guessing the British would attempt an assault on New York City to gain control of the Hudson River, moved the army to Manhattan. The British fleet arrived in late June 1776. By the middle of August, 22,000 British troops were stationed on Staten Island with 10,000 sent to land on the shores of Gravesend Bay. The next day, 5,000 Hessian mercenaries rowed across the East River into Flatbush. Washington made a tactical error, assuming British troops amassed on Long Island were a diversion to the actual capture of Manhattan. Washington did not recombine his forces to meet the threat. Instead, he lined New York’s harbor with various levels of entrenchment. The small contingency of troops, led by Israel Putnam on Long Island, were spread across the central hills of Brooklyn where the Battle of Brooklyn would take place. The Heights of Guan was a series of hills extending from Flatbush heading north to Brooklyn Heights. They varied in height from 100 to 150 feet. The canopy of deep forest below offered cover against British troops movements up the passes leading to the top of the ridge. These included the Gowanus Battle and Jamaica Passes. The battle would begin with 20,000 British troops aligned near Gowanus Bay pitted
The Delaware Regiment in the Domenick D’Andrea painting “The Battle of Long Island, 1776” (Public domain) racking up their highest casualties to the British as they attempted to conquer Battle Hill. It was a shortlived victory, because the Americans mistakenly thought there were only two passes leading to the top of the ridge. During the late-night hours, British troops moved up the unguarded Jamaica Pass. This is where the battle came to a decisive end.

trapped by the East River at their back, they were joined by the 1st Maryland Regiment, known as the Maryland 400. The actual number of this well- trained regiment was 256. They held off the British long enough for some troops to retreat to Brooklyn Heights. Many soldiers, including Lord Stirling and John Sullivan were captured. Now, General Howe was about to make his tactical error. Howe didn’t follow advice of his subordinates to attack Washington’s troops in Brooklyn Heights. Instead, he positioned his troops for an attack the next morning. During that night, Washington moved troops across the East River to the shores of Manhattan, saving thousands of lives. What overshadows his brilliant maneuver is the final brutal tally as Americans suffered 1,000 casualties and 1,000 captured, while the British only lost 400 men.

THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS
Creating special experiences for people is one of your many fortes activated to excellent effect, heaping money and more on you. You’ll gain strength in areas of importance to you, not the usual improvements. Rather, these are prizes of significance and specificity that bolster something deeply personal. A thriving relationship will be a jewel of your year. Grand gestures will punctuate a love story -- events not to be mistaken for the story itself -- which will play out in small, daily graces.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). What we assume to be is not always what is. Jumping to conclusions can have messy results. Witnessing the wrongheadedness of others will inspire you to keep yourself in check. Set up an accountability system. Elicit the feedback of good people. Even if you choose not to follow it, you’re better for the interaction. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Outside appearances suggest you’re having a good time -- and you are -- but more importantly, you’re networking. Building relationships is a perfectly productive use of time. The more people you know, the more access you have to information and resources that will soon be useful to you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Accurate character assessment is one of your many talents. You trust the trustworthy and steer clear of anyone who gives your gut an uneasy feeling. Your instinct for finding good people will be activated, though peer pressure could endanger it. Don’t let the opinions of friends throw you. Make decisions independently. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Politicians aren’t the only ones with platforms. You have a platform, too, and you’ll use it this week. Your influence doesn’t always come in words. Sometimes, your silence says more. People around you depend on your presence and welcome your contribution, even when it represents a different side from their own. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Be tender with your creative soul. Don’t let the perfectionist win; there is no prize! Being hard on yourself yields nothing good. Your expectation of others ends at common decency and good manners. Why would you expect so much more from yourself? Hyperproduction will only lead to burnout later. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The ticket for entry into the future will be bought with what you’re willing to give up about the past. This can be accomplished in a loving manner. Moving on is a fact of life, and there doesn’t have to be a compelling reason to roll forward. The old season is not particularly wrong or bad; it’s just over. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Daily interactions count profoundly. Even the most mundane activity has rich potential for expressing your soul’s purpose. You’re the sort of deep person who doesn’t need extra stimulus to feel the magic of existence. You’ll radiate this vibe and lift the atmosphere around you simply by showing up. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The cosmic gifts of the week are a greater awareness of your feelings and a sensitivity to the subtle pressures and -- even more understated -- pleasures of circumstance. The one who can provide you with stress relief will win your attention. You’ll go out of your way to flow greater ease and peace through your world. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When it comes to knowing your limits, you are the expert. Listen to what your physical sensations, feelings and inklings tell you. And if you still think your worth is tied to how productive or useful you are to others, look at who is contributing to this erroneous line of thought -- someone with a selfish agenda. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Joy is as good a purpose as any. People will bond over good, clean fun. Happy vibes lift and illuminate all who get swept into the swirl. Still, it takes effort to get a party started. Go about it like it’s your job. People will feel the driving force of your intention and respond in kind. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The terms of most arrangements are spelled out in subtle social contracts, gestures, veiled promises, hopes and insecurities. You will leverage the intangible and act on the implied. Whether a close friend or casual acquaintance, those lucky enough to be in a relationship with you will enjoy the elegance of this. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People in the same vicinity are much more likely to strike up friendships and become emotionally invested in one another. You may currently be an outsider to a scene that intrigues you, but this will all change if you’re bold enough to close the geographic gap. How can you give yourself the locational advantage?

Soccer For A Cause Scores For The Michael Magro Foundation
More than $28,000 raised for nonprofit children’s cancer organization Mastermind Unit (MMU) presented its annual Soccer for a Cause benefiting the Michael Magro Foundation (MMF) after a year off due to COVID-19. The tournament was held on Saturday Aug. 7, at Cpl. Kevin T. Kolm Memorial Park in Hicksville. The sun was shining as all the event’s dedicated volunteers started to arrive to check in the teams. Excitement was high and the squads this year were very enthusiastic and happy to be back playing in this annual tournament. This year, the tournament featured eight teams and significant donations from far and wide. MMU has partnered with MMF for the past 10 years in helping raise awareness and funds to help support families of children diagnosed with cancer. Brian Horvath a MMF board member, is also a founding member of MMU along with Michael Stamatinos, Dave Musinki, Andrew Visconti and Bryan Alcantara. MMF also gives a special shout out to Platinum Sponsor A Vournournou Construction Management Group. A big thank you to Sysco Long Island, Geoff Cohen for DJ entertainment, photographer Ed Shin for capturing so many active shots, Hicksville Fire Department for always having an EMT on site and the referees who join in the tournament each year.
2021 Soccer for a Cause champions New Paltz This year’s championship team was New Paltz and the second place team was Mouna. Thank you to all the participating teams. Their efforts and the work of all involved raised more than $28,000 for the Michael Magro Foundation.
