Double-sided fliers with antitransgender and century-old antisemitic drivel found in three Nassau communities ANTON MEDIA GROUP STAFF editors@antonmediagroup.com

N

assau police and lawmakers are looking for answers about the party or parties responsible for distributing fliers containing antisemitic, antitransgender disinformation in three Nassau County communities in July. The Nassau County Police Department says that one or more people in a white 2009 or 2010 Toyota Prius may be among those responsible for littering southern Nassau communities with antisemetic, white nationalistic propaganda two weekends ago. According to police and local leaders, at least a few dozen fliers were surreptitiously distributed sometime between late Thursday, July 21 and early Saturday, July 23. Distribution of the fliers seemingly occurred in at least two ‘waves’ late at night on Thursday and then Friday. separated by an initial wave of public condemnation. The fliers were first discovered in Oceanside and Rockville Centre on Friday morning, July 22, folded into plastic bags weighed down with grain and tossed onto residents’ front steps or lawns. That day, Rockville Centre police and a handful of local legislators and rabbis held a press conference condemning the actions, and displaying a large blow-up of one side of the flier. Rockville Centre Mayor Francis X. Murray commented during the presser, “This divisive rhetoric and behavior needs to be stopped now.” Then on Saturday, July 23, residents of Long Beach reported finding the fliers tucked under their cars’ windshield wipers; according to local sources, yet more fliers were also found that day back in Oceanside. Some area residents believe the bagged fliers were placed on their property by someone moving on foot, rather than tossed from a moving car. Printed on one of side of the fliers in question is a version of the more than a century old, fictitious, antisemitic propaganda “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” which suggests that Jewish people are hoarding wealth but also plan to “introduce a progressive wealth tax,” among other hateful and known-to-be-dangerous nonsense. On the back of the fliers, versions of which have been spotted in a handful of U.S. states, is more antisemetic propaganda (depending on the flier batch, alternately declaring that “every single aspect” of the Biden Administration, the Covid pandemic,

In a letter to Rabbi Elie Weinstock, chair of the task force, Drucker wrote, “I strongly believe that an investigation by the Task Force to Combat Antisemitism would be highly beneficial in our efforts to assuage the legitimate and growing concerns that Nassau County residents have expressed in recent days regarding these disgusting incidents.

Edward Mangano Ordered To Pay Over $10 Million Former Nassau Exec also facing prison pending appeal

BY JANET BURNS AND FRANK RIZZO

F

editors@antonmediagroup.com

ormer Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano has been ordered to pay more than $10.6 million to two Connecticut insurance companies for defaulted loans that Mangano facilitated during his time in office. In 2019, Mangano was convincted on federal corruption charges for accepting bribes and using his position to influence the Town of Oyser Bay to guarantee loans and local contracts for restaurateur Harendra Singh. During trial, Singh and former Town of Oyster Bay attorney Leonard Genova testified against Mangano, among others. In April 2022, Mangano and his wife, Linda Mangano, were sentenced to 12 and 15 years imprisonment, respectively, for their roles in the early-to-mid2010s scheme. As Nicole Fuller reported for Newsday in mid-July, U.S. District Judge Joan M. Azrack has now ordered Mangano to pay back $25 in restitution every three months while he is in prison, and 10 percent of his gross monthly income after he’s released. In total, Judge Azrack found Mangano to be liable for the sum of $10,630,016.80. Mangano is currently appealing his prison sentence, which is scheduled to begin on July 27 as of press time. The Manganos of Bethpage were convicted in the Eastern District of New York on March 8, 2019 after a jury trial. The pandemic, as well as an endless series of defense motions and other court proceedings, delayed their sentencing for 37 months. The impending incarceration closes the door on a once-promising political career for Mangano, who closely upset two-term County Executive Thomas Suozzi in 2009 to step up from the county legislature. The Hofstra University alum served from Jan. 1, 2010 to Dec. 31, 2017, handily defeating Suozzi in a rematch in 2013. Under indictment during the 2017 election season, and reportedly out of favor with the Nassau County Republican establishment, Mangano chose not to seek a third term. There was speculation that he could mount an independent bid for reelection, or run under his own creation, the Tax Revolt Party. It twice provided him a second line on the ballot. The pol was convicted of multiple counts of accepting bribes and kickbacks in exchange for official government action, and for conspiracy to obstruct justice. He was also ordered to pay a $20,000 fine. His wife was convicted of conspiracy to obstruct justice, obstruction of justice and making false statements to FBI agents in connection with her employment by 63-year-old Long Island restaurateur Harendra Singh.

Ed and Linda Mangano en route to the federal courthouse in Central Islip during their trial in 2019. (File Photo) Singh was at the center of the original federal indictments, unsealed on Oct. 20, 2016, also naming former Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor John Venditto. The government’s case centered on the relationship between the three accused and Singh, of Laurel Hollow. Singh, who held concessions at the Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course and two town beaches, was accused of bribing the then-elected officials in exchange for loan guarantees in Oyster Bay, as well as contracts with the county government. He pleaded guilty to bribery charges

and became a prosecution witness, The original indictment charged Ed Mangano and Venditto with conspiracy to commit federal program bribery and honest services fraud. Linda Mangano reportedly was given a “no-show” job by Singh at his Water’s Edge restaurant in Long Island City at her husband’s behest. Between April 2010 and August 2014, the government claimed, she earned $450,000. In addition, the government charged the accused and their families of receiving free meals at Singh’s numerous eateries, free

limousine rides, vacations paid by Singh and even, in the case of Mangano’s son, a watch that cost Singh more than $7,000. According to a press release, “Edward and Linda Mangano conspired to obstruct a federal grand jury investigation when they schemed with Singh to fabricate examples of work never performed by Linda Mangano at the Water’s Edge, in an attempt to thwart a grand jury investigation. On May 20, 2015 and May 22, 2015, Linda Mangano made false statements to the FBI and federal prosecutors about the work she claimed to have performed for Singh.” The government claimed that shortly after Mangano assumed office in 2010, he pressured Venditto to “...help Singh obtain financing in order to make required capital improvements at [Tobay] Beach and The Woodlands at the [Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course], by authorizing the [town] to indirectly guarantee four bank loans totaling approximately $20 million. Mangano used his official position to ensure that [Oyster Bay] backed the loans.” Singh, according to court documents, was struggling financially and having trouble making the capital improvements mandated by the terms of his concessions. According to a transcript of the trial obtained by Anton Media Group, Singh said on the witness stand, “I bribed Ed Mangano and he did favors for me.” All three originally pleaded not guilty. On May 31, 2018, Judge Azrack declared a mistrial in the government case against the Bethpage couple after the jury foreman stated that he could no longer carry out his duties and asked to be excused. Reportedly, the jury was deadlocked over the charges against the couple. Less than 10 months later, after a second jury trial, the Manganos were convicted of several charges. Venditto was cleared of similar charges by a jury on May 24, 2018. He was later convicted under state corruption charges, though he did not serve jail time. The longtime Massapequa resident died in March 2020. The parties’ loan arrangement reportedly violated Article VIII of the New York State Constitution forbidding municipalities and school districts from giving loans to private businesses. A statement in advance of the sentencing by a lawyer for the loan company, Phoenix Holdings, noted that Phoenix loaned Singh about $13.873 million, of which he paid back only $3.243 million. Phoenix sued the Town of Oyster Bay to recover the rest. In April, Judge Azrack wrote in her ruling that the indirect loan guarantees “...which were executed by Len Genova and Singh as part of the [Town of Oyster Bay] Loan Scheme were ultimately found by state and federal courts not to be enforceable.”

Nassau IDA Must Hold Amazon To Its Job Creation Commitments

D

isturbing published reports have indicated that Amazon and Syosset Park Development, LLC may be attempting to do an “end-run” around the commitment they made to the Nassau County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) to create 150 new warehouse jobs in Syosset as a condition of them receiving a lucrative package of tax breaks and incentives. This would be an affront to Nassau taxpayers that must be addressed forcefully and with significant repercussions as promised at the outset. In March 2021, the Nassau County IDA awarded approximately $11 million in tax breaks to Amazon and Syosset Park Development, LLC over the course of the next 15 years to aid in the construction of a 204,000 square-foot “last mile” facility on Syosset Park Lots 251 and 252 (305 Robbins Lane, Syosset). These incentives were awarded in part based upon Amazon and Syosset Park Development, LLC’s agreement to create 150 new warehouse jobs in Syosset. Furthermore, as stated in their application to the IDA, that the new warehouse would not “...result in the removal or abandonment of a plant or facility of the applicant … or relocation of any employee of the applicant” located within Nassau County. That is why I was so outraged to read in Newsday on June 23, that Amazon plans to close its existing warehouse in Bethpage and move employees to the new Syosset facility, thereby depriving Nassau residents of the benefit of the 150 new employment opportunities that they were promised in exchange for the use of their tax dollars. As a matter of public record, I have always supported the redevelopment and environmental remediation of this site - one that languished in our community for decades. However, I have opposed IDA tax breaks for Amazon from the onset because of the corporation’s remarkable wealth, its brazen union-busting activities and the documented negative impact on local wages in

communities where Amazon sets up shop. Moreover, I believed that a more innovative use of the land would have reaped greater benefits for Syosset residents now and in the future. Nevertheless, the Nassau IDA made a decision to enter an agreement with Amazon and Syosset Park Development, LLC—and now the Nassau IDA must hold them to it. While I am gratified that Chairman Richard Kessel stated he is directly engaging with Amazon to address these shocking revelations, the Nassau IDA must accept nothing short of full adherence to the agreement that Amazon signed. Should they fail or refuse, the IDA must claw back every cent of tax incentives that were previously awarded to Amazon related to this project. Failure to do so would establish a dangerous precedent for future applicants —one in which acts of non-compliance or even duplicity would not only be permitted, but in fact rewarded. —Arnold W. Drucker, of Plainview, was first elected to the Nassau County Legislature in 2016. He represents the 16th Legislative District in the Nassau County Legislature.

Taking A Look At Town’s Abortion Law

Discussion of ‘pregnancy termination facilities’ to take place on August 4

A

t its Aug. 4 meeting, the North Hempstead Town Board will be voting to amend a section of the Town Code entitled “Pregnancy Termination Facilities.” The law, adopted in 1971, regulates where “justifiable abortion acts” may take place in North Hempstead. “We are going to be dealing with some antiquated and confusing language from a 50-year-old town law that really needs to be addressed,” said Councilmember Veronica Lurvey. “The town should not be putting up barriers on a woman’s right to choose.” Following the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the US Supreme Court, Lurvey determined that all local laws regarding abortions must be carefully scrutinized. Upon discovery of provisions in Chapter 41A of the town code that limited where abortions can be performed, Lurvey made a push to repeal that language. Her resolution at the July 7 meeting to set a date for a public hearing was

Feinstein Summer Concert Raises $3.6M To Advance Medical Research

rammy Award-winning and multiplatinum-selling artist Enrique Iglesias recently took center stage at the 17th annual Feinstein Summer Concert, which raised $3.6 million to support medical innovations. For more than two decades, researchers at Northwell Health’s Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research have made important discoveries in oncology, autoimmunity, neuroscience and genetics that translate into clinical advances and transform the treatment of conditions such as lupus, arthritis, sepsis, cancer, psychiatric illness and Alzheimer’s disease. More than 5,000 researchers and staff collaborate across five institutes in behavioral science, bioelectronic medicine, cancer research, health system science and molecular medicine. “The extraordinary work being done at the Feinstein Institutes continues to strengthen its reputation as a global leader in medical research,” Northwell President and CEO Michael J. Dowling said. “We are driving the breakthroughs that lead to better, longer, healthier lives.” Since its inception, the Feinstein Summer Concert series has raised more than $33 million to accelerate lifesaving

The event, held on July 14 at Old Westbury Gardens, helps Northwell continue to pioneer solutions and unearth new discoveries that are impacting the

trajectory of medicine around the world. “We are grateful for the tremendous support of our benefactors whose generosity fuels the innovations that can improve health for everyone in our communities,”

said Kevin J. Tracey, MD, president and CEO of the Feinstein Institutes and the Karches Family Distinguished Chair in Medical Research. In his remarks at the concert, Dr. Tracey highlighted the impact that inflammation has on people’s health, noting that the condition surpasses infection as the underlying cause of disease and illness. “What if we cured inflammation? At the Feinstein Institutes, my colleagues and I work every day on that question. Science and research change everything,” he said. Chris Wragge, co-anchor of CBS New York’s News This Morning and News at Noon, served as the event’s emcee for the sixth year. Catering and event design were coordinated by Larry Scott of Lawrence Scott Events. The Feinstein Institutes thanks its generous donors and its leadership sponsors of this year’s event: Susan and Leonard Feinstein, Donald Zucker and Barbara Hrbek Zucker and Waterfall Asset Management.

Cirque du Soleil Breaks The Ice With Crystal EMMA DUFFY editors@antonmediagroup.com

E

ver since Cirque du Soleil was founded by former street performers Guy Laliberté and Gilles Ste-Croix back in 1984, the troupe has performed on terra firma while bringing its acrobatic exploits to global audiences. With the new Cirque show Crystal, the Canadian-based entertainment company has put its performers on skates and taken to the ice. It has been in the works for a long time, but was paused due to COVID-19. The return has been long awaited and those working with Crystal are excited to share what they have in store. “I started back remotely in the beginning of November while I was still in Australia, so by that time, there had already been quite a lot of pre-planning,” Crystal Artistic Director Rob Tannion said. Despite all of this planning, there have still been challenges in their path. Acrobatics requires teamwork that cannot be practiced up to par by a singular individual. During the peak of COVID-19, it was particularly difficult for the team to run practices the way they are used to. “One of the things we had to sort out is how do we touch each other in a safe space,” Tannion said. “There are 14 artists, a combination of acrobats and skaters on stage that need to have physical contact.” The show has some fantastic tricks to watch, such as performer Michael Helgren’s favorite, the pendulum poles act. In this act, skaters and acrobats work together to fly along poles. However, there is more to this show than just flips and tricks. This show tells the tale of a woman on her journey of self-discovery. It starts off with immediate drama, grabbing attention right away. In dire situations, a woman is forced to figure out who she truly is. “If there’s a message from the short story, it’s about really fighting for what you believe in and coming to terms with yourself, facing your shadows, owning your shadows and going on that journey of discovery,” Tannion said. This is not a typical Cirque du Soleil show, it is more cohesive than those in the past. Many who have seen the show and been involved in its development also believe that it has become more evolved overall. After their hiatus, the show is coming back in a fuller and more realized form. “One thing that’s different and unique about this show is generally Cirque du Soleil shows are a little bit more abstract and it’s maybe a little difficult to follow the storyline,” Helgren said. “This show does a beautiful job of taking you through the

storyline and you really feel like you’re a part of Crystal’s emotions.” As much fun as they have had working on the show, it is even more exciting for the performers and creator’s to see the audience’s reactions. Their work is done out of passion, but it is also done out of their love for seeing fans pleased with the work they have put on. They see people laugh, cry and cheer at their work and that is what they have been missing during the COVID-19 times. “Just connecting with the audiences again [is special]. When a performer has a few years off with no audience interaction, it kind of puts you on a low,” Helgren said. “Being back in front of audiences again, definitely gives you that high you get when you’re on stage.” Not surprisingly, this show has a distinct international flavor. There are performers representing 17 different nationalities speaking 11 different languages that travel together on a week-in and week-out basis. Despite all these different groups of people traveling together under one roof, they make one family. After traveling, practicing and performing together, an unbreakable bond has been created. “Crystal has a really incredible group of people,” Tannion said, “We are almost 100 people and while I know it is like a clique, we are like a giant family.” Tannion added, “We’ve had good times and bad times within that, but in general, it’s great to be back on that kind of rollercoaster of emotions with these people who share the same passion.”

magine walking through a crowded airport, rushing to catch your flight and there in the middle of the terminal is a radio studio with a guy giving financial advice live. Well you don’t have to imagine anymore. It’s a reality at Long Island MacArthur Airport courtesy of NewsRadio 103.9FM and that guy is Anthony the Money Guy. Veteran Long Island business pundit Anthony Punzone is heard on the station every Monday night at 5 p.m. dishing out the latest information and assistance to small business owners and entrepreneurs alike. A veteran of Wall Street, Punzone left a highly successful career about 20 years ago to branch out on his own. Having created his flagship brand, VAVAR Global, he glided seamlessly into more business services and telecoms before retiring several years ago. At the height of the pandemic, Punzone started thinking about coming out of retirement. He saw an opportunity to help people while doing something he loves. Most people were laying low during the COVID-19 crisis but not Punzone. He started up Wall Street Banking Services.

Punzone the right guy to talk about money matters today. “I decided to open my own firm, specializing in small and medium businesses that need financing,” he explained, “It’s an important niche that needs to be served.” Punzone points out that small business owners are the backbone of the local and national economy. Main Street always funnels into Wall Street. As his radio show and business continue to grow in popularity, Punzone remembers his roots. He is always involved in community programs and is looking for guests for his radio show from the local business arena. “My advice to all business owners is to secure financing when you do not need it so it’s there when you do,” he advised. Many financial gurus today are quick to predict the death of the small business market. Don’t tell that to Anthony Punzone, who believes in the entrepreneural spirit because he has been living it for the past two decades. Going forward, he looks to continue to help small business owners prosper and grow, whether it’s on the air, on the web or in his office.

Habits Versus Rituals Focusing on creating rituals, rather than habits, can enhance your partnership. Dr. John Gottman notes that rituals of connection can bring partners together and strengthen relationships. Psychotherapist Esther Perel shares that while routines may help us get through our days, it is the rituals that help us in life. She distinguishes between routines and rituals and notes that routines are concrete, repetitive actions, such as jogging every morning. Rituals, on the other hand, are like maps that help us navigate situations. These maps can also enhance connection and intimacy. Changing the routine of solo jogging into a couple ritual, may involve partners enjoying nature by going for a hike together. By doing this they are sharing something and building their connection. The difference, Perel notes, is in the details and what they symbolize. Take for example, Courtney and John, who have been married for

five years. They love each other deeply but have recently begun to feel as if they have fallen out of step. They have extremely busy schedules and have unintentionally pulled away from one another by engaging with their work and other commitments. They share many daily habits, such as getting up at 6 every morning, each exercising for 45 minutes through individualized workout routines, one person starting the coffee while the other showers and then switching. They have

breakfast while scanning the daily news and rush out of the house to begin their day. Sometimes when running behind, they forget to hug or kiss goodbye and even when they do, it’s more mechanical than memorable. While it would be wonderful for them to take a break, put all their work aside, go on and spend time reconnecting, that simply isn’t realistic. By being thoughtful and making small changes by converting habits into rituals, you can make a large impact on your relationship. Let’s re-examine their mornings. • Instead of each exercising for 45 minutes, listening to headphones or taking independent classes, they can opt for a partnered workout, in which they engage with one another. They can also spend those 45 minutes by going for a walk/jog/ run around their neighborhood, talking and connecting as they go.

• Instead of reading the news while having coffee and eating, they can use that time to talk with one another about what upcoming daily events they are most excited about. They can also use this time to plan other ways to connect once they get home in the evening. • Instead of rushing out the door, they can pause and intentionally connect with one another by embracing (for at least 20 seconds) or giving one another a meaningful kiss when they exit the door. Adding an expression of gratitude for your partner to your goodbye ritual can make your parting from one another even more meaningful. No matter what you choose to do to create rituals, discuss your ideas with your partner so that you incorporate things that are meaningful to both of you. Dr. Marisa Cohen is a relationship scientist and coach and teaches psychology at the college level.

first comes from a remote worker forced back to the office. “Brutal and mind blowing. I’m back to getting bombarded from people eating fish at their desk and never shutting up. After work, I buy a Mocha Grande, hit the golf course parking lot and hang out.” There you go. Bobby’s golf course hang out prepares him for whatever awaits him at home. Coffee is a popular companion but, the following show the art form with a different prop. Brian is a stockbroker who takes the train into Manhattan. Even if the ride back is solemn, he needs time after work to balance himself. “The hell with going out with the brokers after work for a few martinis. I’ll get tortured by them the

next day anyway with how they’re working off the hangover. When I get off the train, I drive to the least crowded parking lot and hang out. I have one cold, premium dark beer sitting in a cooler ready to go. I sip that baby slow and my head calms down. No sweat.” Yeah, Bob you better calm down. My buddy, Joey, is an actor who gave me a nice briefing on how to hang out in nature. “Hey, hanging out is big with me. Check this out. I landed a role in a mystery movie. The actress, a gorgeous brunette, is practicing lines with me and keeps going off script. Not a big deal but after rehearsal, I needed to hang out. I headed uptown to the 72nd Street entrance to Central Park by Strawberry Fields and spotted Chesty King. He boogies over and pulls out a bag of joints. I laugh, hand him a couple of fins, mosey into the park, climb up on a rock and light up. That Central Park hangout makes me a new man.” No doubt, hanging out soothes the savage beast. In Joey’s case he is alone on a rock. One point is that parking lot situations happen. A few weeks back, I sat eating a salad during an afternoon hang out in a small strip mall. Out of nowhere, the wind kicked up to 40 mph

Adventures In Hanging Out Before I became a remote worker, you may have seen me at a 7-Eleven or Dunkin’ Donuts, sitting in my truck doing nothing. Let me explain. During my commuter life, after crawling through thick traffic, I’d arrive at the office and be immediately pounced on by the office manager going berserk about me parking too close to his new Range Rover. Then, like clockwork, somebody in the cafeteria would dump their food on me. At quitting time, the workplace had left my head buzzing like there’s a jackhammer planted inside. I would drive to a Dunkin’, grab a coffee, find a corner spot, kick back and enjoy the act of just hanging out. All around America, any age group, driving a beat-up pick-up truck or sporting a Ferrari you’ll find hanging out. Once experienced, you’ll understand the popularity. After a brain twisting eight-hour day, why go directly home just to be thrown back into the line of fire: the landscaper tore up your fence or having to fix the toilet that overflowed before you left that morning. My suggestion is before you attempt a Niagara Falls of responsibilities, go hang out. I’ve talked to friends about their experiences with hanging out. The

gusts. From the far reaches of the lot, a grocery a cart starts rolling toward me picking up speed quickly. I didn’t have time to put down my fork when it nailed my front grill. So, keep your eyes moving. What I’ve noticed lately while hanging out is people splitting time between relaxation and chores. I saw a guy cleaning the rims and waxing his Camaro, while a few spaces down, a woman had a garbage can on the ground shredding documents. No kidding. Finally, I once watched as two guys in a Ford F350 built an entertainment unit and then began to install the electronics. Beautiful thing to watch. I was late getting back to my desk. Hanging out eases the brutality of the eight-hour day while smoothing the anxiety related to the avalanche of responsibilities awaiting you. Anyone would agree hanging out is a pleasure like no other. Unless you consider a lobster dinner in a neighbors’ backyard on a warm summer night more appealing. What did you think of this story?

Can’t We Just Be Happy For ‘Happy?’ In June of this year, the New York Court of Appeals ruled, in a 5-2 decision, that “Happy” the elephant is an elephant after all. You would think that with all the terrible things happening in New York State, like crime, taxes and government corruption, they wouldn’t waste time listening to a case about whether an elephant may or may not be a human. Animal rights activists have advocated for animals that can’t speak for themselves for years. Cages resembling prison cells are a thing of the past. Thanks to the activists, who sometimes get a bad rap, visitors to the zoo can observe most of these animals in a more natural habitat. Sometimes, animals in their natural habitat can be a little boring. Since they no longer have to run for their lives from predators, they spend a lot of time lying around in the shade. And who can blame them? If you want to see a cheetah sprint across the field and take down its prey, turn on the Discovery Channel. But what makes “Happy” the elephant any different from “Fred” the lion in the Bronx Zoo? Well, Fred didn’t have the Nonhuman

Rights Project in his corner. Happy, who recently received a mailing from AARP when she turned 50, has called the Bronx Zoo home for the last 45 years. Although the Bronx Zoo has agreed not to take on any additional elephants for exhibits in the future, it still maintains a home for both Happy and another elephant, Patty. Unfortunately, the two do not get along and live in separate enclosures, divided by a fence. In early 2020, the Nonhuman Rights Project challenged the zoo’s right to confine Happy, arguing that the situation amounted to “a cruel confinement.” They feel that since Happy is an intelligent being,

they could sue under habeas corpus rights against improper detention. A trial court judge denied their motion. An appellate court then upheld the original ruling. That set up the hearing for the Court of Appeals in June of 2022. Although both sides agreed Happy should not just be set loose to roam the streets of Upper Manhattan, the project wanted her moved to a proper sanctuary for elephants. And that’s where their argument no longer held water. Chief Judge Janet DiFiore ruled that the relief they request is not from confinement but from one type of confinement to another. That request proves Happy can’t speak for herself and therefore is non-human. No one could possibly answer the question as to what would be better for Happy. Would she be better off staying in the only environment she has known for the last 45 years, with over an acre of land to roam free in and loving, familiar handlers? Or would she be better off being placed in a new home with more elephants to socialize with? Where is Dr. Doolittle when you need him?

Judge Rowan Wilson, one of the two dissenting votes, agreed that “an elephant is not a member of the homo sapiens species. At the same time, an elephant is not a desk chair or an earthworm.” Well, I’m glad we cleared that up. So where does that leave Happy, now that she has officially been declared non-human and can return to being an elephant again? Well, at 50 years old, she still has about 20 years of life expectancy.

Guidance Center’s Innovative Program For Latina Teens July was BIPOC Mental Health Month, which puts the spotlight on the wellbeing of Black, Indigenous and People of Color communities. One of North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center’s signature programs, the Latina Girls Project, was created in response to the alarming rates of depression, school refusal, self-harm, suicidal ideation and attempted suicides by Hispanic teen girls. More than a decade ago, our team at the Guidance Center noticed an increasingly large number of first-generation Latinas were coming to us with severe depression, self-harming behaviors and suicidal thoughts. Many had stopped attending school and some had been hospitalized for suicide attempts. The research backed up what we were seeing at the time: Hispanic teenage girls were significantly more likely than their non-Hispanic peers to suffer from depression, thoughts of suicide and suicide attempts. More recent research, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,

PARENTING PLUS Erika Perez-Tobon

showed that 10.5 percent of Latina adolescents aged 10–24 years in the U.S. attempted suicide in 2016, compared to 7.3 percent of white female, 5.8 percent of Latino and 4.6 percent of white male teens. In response to this crisis, we formed the Latina Girls Project, an innovative program that employs individual, group and family therapy, along with monthly outings and other activities, all designed to tackle issues such as depression, low self-esteem, social anxiety, school refusal, self-harming behaviors or suicidal ideation.

Some of our clients who were born outside the U.S. have witnessed violence in their homelands and many have experienced complex trauma since a young age. Those who were born in the U.S. are impacted by the generational trauma experienced by their parents and limitations around communicating with their parents. Regardless of where they were born, a big part of the reason these girls are struggling is because they are pulled in conflicting directions, with their parents wanting them to adhere to the traditional values of their homeland, while the girls seek to integrate into American culture and find acceptance among their peers. The result: Parents are often extremely overprotective; they won’t allow their daughters to venture out and participate in activities such as sleepovers, dating or trips to the mall. Even if the teens are allowed to go out with their friends, they are required to have a chaperone, such as a parent or brother. In addition, they are often relegated to gender-biased roles, required to cook, clean and take

care of their siblings while their brothers are treated, as one girl said, “like princes.” During bilingual individual, family and group therapy sessions, the girls realize that they can trust their therapists, many of whom also grew up as first-generation Latinas. The therapists teach the girls healthy strategies to deal with stress and depression and effective ways to communicate with their parents. For their part, the parents become more compassionate about their daughters’ desire to fit in, and they also understand the need to let their teens separate in age-appropriate ways. One of our Latina clients put it this way: “My parents learned that I just wanted them to be there for me and listen. They learned that it doesn’t help to question why I feel the way I do but to accept it and support me.” In addition to therapy, the program incorporates monthly supervised outings to places such as theaters, museums and other cultural and educational sites. These trips, made possible by the generosity of John and

Janet Kornreich, expose the girls to the world in a way that would never have happened if not for this Guidance Center program. The trips serve to boost the teens’ confidence and sense of independence, and the girls also discover that there’s a great big world of opportunity out there for them, which allows them to feel hopeful about their futures. The trips also offer respite to the parents who are relieved to know that their daughters are in safe hands. As one girl put it, “The Latina Girls Project helped my mother and I communicate and become very close, and the monthly outings showed me a world I never would have seen. I felt that I wanted to be a part of the larger world. The trips gave me the feeling that I could be truly happy in my life.” Erika Perez-Tobon, LCSW, who is originally from Venezuela, is the bilingual Clinical Supervisor of North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center’s Latina Girls Project, which is located at the agency’s Westbury location.

According to the New York State

Department of Health, chronic diseases such as asthma, cancer, diabetes, health disease and stroke are the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. These conditions account for seven of every ten deaths and affect 90 million Americans. The good news is that these diseases are preventable through a healthy lifestyle, with simple lifestyle choices, such as regular physical activity and a balanced diet. The Long Island Health Collaborative is a huge proponent of walking for its many physical and mental health benefits, and the activity’s power to prevent and manage chronic disease. Walk with a Doc was started to “encourage physical activity and reduce the effects of a sedentary lifestyle.” Today, Walk with a Doc is inspiring communities through movement and conversation across the nation and the world. About the Long Island Health Collaborative The Long Island Health Collaborative is a partnership of Long Island’s hospitals, county health departments, physicians, health providers, community-based social and human service organizations, academic institutions, health plans, local government, and the business sector, all engaged in improving the health of Long Islanders with a focus on the reduction of chronic diseases.

Helping Kids And Parents Cope

W

hile it’s still high summer, school is just weeks away. Already, many families are starting to feel anxiety about the return to school. The last two and a half years have been chaotic for families, and while the disruption of COVID-19 has lessened, its effects still reverberate for many. Family and Children’s Association’s (FCA) system of care can help families prepare for the upcoming school year and beyond. Its family focused approach offers a variety of free and Medicaid-supported programs designed to help prepare children of all ages and their families to cope, and even thrive inside and outside the classroom. Counseling is available for children of every socio-economic background and for non-English speakers. The FCA team works with the family to assess their needs, present a choice of services that they qualify for and empower the family to decide. In addition to working on an individual child’s goals, the caseworker can also help the family determine additional resources that would benefit them. COVID-19-related isolation and remote learning have exacerbated mental and behavioral health challenges and increased social anxiety. FCA makes it easier for kids and their families to access services through home visits or in another comfortable environment such as the local library; or even

Last year, FCA helped 333 clients. There are waitlists for children on Medicaid. Health Home Care Management and Home and Community Based Services include pre-vocational services, community self-advocacy training supports and planned respite. Children and Family Treatment and Support Services include in-home therapy, family peer

t

support, community psychiatric support and treatment, and psychosocial rehab. Telehealth services are also available, but FCA staff have found that in most cases, kids don’t respond as well to virtual meetings. They are tired of that route and prefer face to face meetings. Ninety to 95 percent of visits

are in person. However, if there is COVID-19 in the house or other issues that preclude at-home visits, telehealth visits prevent a disruption of services. FCA employs a comprehensive wrap around service approach, bringing all these services in-house to best provide stability

for the child living with you in your home. Having too many different providers and agencies can cause a chaotic environment that engenders more chaos. Having one case manager eliminates overlap and encourages collaboration among service providers. Families respond well to this method. The earlier a family can get services, the better the outcome. FCA’s Children’s Mental Health and Wellness division sees children as young as 6 years old and up to age 21. Kids learn coping skills; parents learn management skills. FCA’s goal is to keep the child out of the system. FCA helps link children to services that they are eligible to receive and additional resources to maintain a healthy level of coping with a lower level of support. The average FCA consumer uses these services from 12 to 18 months. Some kids can be in therapy longer if needed. After a course of therapy and counseling, FCA links the family with providers on the outside to help them keep on course. All FCA services are confidential, and there is never any disclosure of services without parental consent. FCA will work with the child’s school, if requested, with proper parental consent. FCA programs operate throughout Nassau County, and in part of western Suffolk and eastern Queens. Visit www.fcali.org for more information.

Keeping the Dialogue Going with Howard Jones DAVE GIL de RUBIO

dgilderubio@antonmediagroup.com

I

f synthesizers are the engine for Howard Jones’ creative drive, then positivity is the fuel. It has been since Jones broke onto the international music scene with his 1983 hit single “New Song” and has continued to be the case with the current four-piece album concept he’s in the middle of recording and releasing that started with 2015’s Engage. In 2019, Transform was followed by this year’s Dialogue and next year’s Global Citizen set to wrap up this overarching concept. It’s a rather straightforward approach the English musician has been working within over the past seven years. “Engage was about not just being a bystander—be involved in what’s going on around you and don’t think that you don’t have any effect on the world and your environment because you do,” Jones explained. “Transform was about if we want to change the world and change things for the better, we have to start with ourselves. We have to work on ourselves and our behavior towards other people and ourselves as well. And Dialogue is what I just described—the importance of communicating towards each other. The next one, which I will probably start next year is Global Citizen and that’s putting all those three concepts into action and believing that you can have an effect on the world as a global citizen.” Not unlike the rest of the world, Jones found himself isolated by the pandemic lockdown as he was embarking on the recording of Dialogue. The dark mood of uncertainty that came with this global situation meant lyrics came later, but in the end, Jones was able to surmount the challenges presented with being a oneman band, particularly after contracting a post-vaccination case of COVID-19. “I couldn’t really work with other people on this, so it was me, my growing synthesizer collection, software and studio,” he recalled. “In a way that makes it quite focused I think. I had plenty of time to experiment, try some new things and get some really great sounds together. I got to spend days on just one sound to make it really special. And having that amount of time was a blessing to really experiment. I suddenly remembered that I used to do a lot of harmony vocals—layered vocals and big multi-harmonized vocals and I

got back into that idea. And I wanted my voice to sound different every time I used one of those harmonized vocals and I was experimenting. There was one point that I got COVID-19—I was completely vaccinated and everything but when I got it, I sort of lost my full voice. I thought I was going to have to try and do something different, so I sang in a different way more quietly. I got a really different sound and I was really quite excited about that. If you’re doing all your own backing vocals yourself, you need to make yourself sound different to differentiate between the lead and backing vocal. It worked for me.” And while Jones did all the creative-lifting, he did get a compositional assist from

maybe throughout the rest of my career because we get on very well. For him, it’s about trying to find time because he’s the busiest man in the universe.” While this string of albums is heavily electronically driven, Jones will be mixing it up during his live shows with the help of touring Robin Boult and Nick Beggs, late of Kajagoogoo. “It’s an electronic show and we’re going to be debuting a few tracks from the Dialogue album along with a couple of tracks from Transform and one from Engage as well,” he said. “The fans really follow everything I do and I really must look after that as well as playing the hits. That would be really mean not to do that. There is a section in the show where we go acoustic. It’s my guitarist Robin, me and Nick Beggs, who is tour on with me as well from Kajagoogoo Howard Jones fame, who has been a close friend of mine (Photo by for many years, all take part in this acoustic Mikesfox/CC section where I play things like ‘No One Is BY-SA 3.0) to Blame’ and ‘Life In One Day.’ We also do an acoustic version of ‘Too Shy,’ which the audience absolutely loves because Nick is there and he wrote it. He plays that amazing bass solo in it. It’s kind of nice to take it away from the banging electronic tunes and go acoustic and then go back to them. It seems to work as a great dynamic.” An added bonus is longtime pal Midge Ure (Ultravox) serving as the opening act (“He’s an absolute total legend and a really good friend of mine. I feel very fortunate.”) Looking to the remainder of this year and into 2023, Jones and his fan base have plenty to look forward to between Global Citizen completing his four-album musical concept along with a concert album (Live at Union Chapel) and a collection of non-synthesizer-based material that he’d been working on for a number of years (Piano Composed). And while he’s understandably excited about this burst of creativity that’s BT (aka Brian Transeau), the American going to take him into the next year, Howard musician/DJ/electronic music pioneer, Jones has always clung to the philosophy of who became a close friend of Jones after gratitude driving him forward and refusing the latter came out to see him head up an to get caught up in the highs and lows of the ambitious orchestral project in Miami back music industry and life in general. in 2015. It’s a connection Jones has come to “I think it’s very important to be happy treasure. with your work and one of the best ways to “On the new album, we did two or three be happy is to really appreciate the situation tracks and BT was great,” Jones said. “For you find yourself in, even if it’s difficult or those two tracks—‘Celebrated Together’ you’re having problems or whether you’re and ‘Be the Hero’—he’d sent me some seed soaring because it’s going well,” he said. ideas for tracks quite a long time ago. I used “Just really appreciate things because if it’s a bit of that in the writing of them and I’m not going well, then you can learn a ton of really hoping that we may get a remix from stuff from that to make it better. If things are him based on one of those songs. I know he going really well, don’t get carried away, was particularly excited about ‘Be the Hero.’ because that may stop you from doing great We probably will continue to work together work in the future.”

y friend and I left Montana a day early because we were worried about the lack of transportation. We had met a nice lady from Texas who had told us she sold her house and most of her belongings after retiring so that she could travel the country. She was nice enough to give us a ride to the Amtrak station, as well as bring us to Glacier National Park beforehand so that we could enjoy our last day. We arrived in Spokane, WA, in the middle of the night and settled into an Airbnb we booked for the night, which was very comfy. But once we woke up we had to move ourselves into the other Airbnb we had booked. Luckily, the host allowed us to keep our bags there before check-in so that we could go and do laundry. While doing laundry at a nearby laundromat, we wandered into this cat café next door and asked the barista what she suggested doing in the area. She told us simply that the Pacific Northwest loves coffee. And we could see that was very true. There were small coffee drive-thrus everywhere. I wondered to myself, “Who loves coffee more? New York or the Pacific Northwest?” The bus system in Spokane was incredible. It was extremely reliable for us to get around and it came exactly on time. The community was also clearly proud of their bus system, as they had murals for it inside the bus station. We saw beautiful waterfalls in the Riverfront Park, which took us almost all afternoon to explore. The following day we explored all the gardens in the area. After Spokane, we had an Amtrak connecting bus to Seattle. We got to Seattle right at check-in into our hotel/Airbnb (a hotel had listed its rooms as Airbnb). We hiked up this incline from the station to the hotel, which was about a nine-minute walk. And by the time we got there, we were totally out of breath. Opening the door, there were another two flights of stairs. I tried to see if there was an elevator we could use to bring up our luggage, but the owner of the hotel reminded us that it was built in 1910. The Panama Hotel, the owner told us, was popular among young Japanese professionals until they were forced into internment camps during World War Two. Many of the guests had left behind their belongings when they were captured and many of those belongings went unclaimed for decades. Today, those belongings can be seen in the basement of the hotel. Unfortunately, we did not really get to

Olympic National Park was absolutely breathtaking.

While getting this picture made us late to return our rental car, it was absolutely worth seeing the Pacific Ocean for the first time.

A waterfall in Riverfront Park. We went on the gondola over the falls. When we got closer to the falls, we saw a bunch of salmon hopping at the bottom of the falls. We read that they do that because they become trapped in the rocks. (Photos by Jennifer Corr)

explore the hotel because the next day we would be taking a road trip to Olympic National Park. We picked up our rental car through an app called Toro, which allows people to rent out their personal cars at usually a much lower price than traditional car rentals. And then we headed to Olympic National Park. It was a nice drive to a very beautiful park. We saw mountains in the distance with snow peaks and valleys of hills with evergreen trees. We also saw a creek of bright blue water and a waterfall that fed it. Navigating the park, at times, was a bit frightening because some of the roads sat right next to a cliff and there were no guardrails. I practically held my breath going at about 25 miles per hour as I drove down the mountain. We took a detour to Forks, WA, where the Twilight series takes place. It was cool being there and we got a really good pasta alfredo with smoked salmon there. But then my friend and I debated whether or not we should go see the sea stacks, as it was about 6:30 p.m. and we had to get the car back by 11:30 p.m. with a four-hour car ride in-between. We ended up doing it, spending five minutes on the beautiful beach. But we’d learn that while the beach was beautiful, it would cost us. We were supposed to get back to Seattle by 11 p.m. according to the GPS, but that’s if you’re going the speed limit. It’s hard to go the speed limit when you’re driving on dark, windy and narrow country roads while cars with their brights on come barreling towards you. That moment made me realize I was glad we took the train instead of driving because these roads are not like the roads on Long Island. But lo and behold we made it back, only 10 minutes late. The car lender was pretty nice about it. And it worked out, as it has been for us. That’s what this trip has taught us. As long as we try and we’re creative, it just seems to work out. This is part four of a series on traveling the country via Amtrak.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To live and love freely, there’s someone you still need to forgive. If you’re not there yet, or you’re not into forgiveness as a concept, don’t worry. Formality is unnecessary. It’s enough to just say, “That was yesterday. I accept it. It’s in the past. Today and tomorrow are different. I now move on.”

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The space between a private and public self is personal. You decide what you want people to know. This week, you’ll take some license and have fun with this, using it as an opportunity for creativity and empowerment. You’ll draw lucky people and situations to you as you thrive on every front.

Solution: 13 Letters

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Practice radical self-acceptance and watch how your energy frees up and you become more capable and powerful in your daily life. Think of yourself as completely ready and ideally suited to the challenges of the week. Nothing about you requires improvement. All efforts are optional and for your own delight.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). How you see the other person is a direct reflection of how you see yourself. This will be true when you experience someone as the hero and just as true when they’re the villain. With a curious mind and in the spirit of nonjudgment, you’ll find insight in the fascinating way your nuanced opinions reflect your psyche. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It is said that the world is a picture of what you want it to be, but had you painted this view with your own brush, you certainly would have left out certain things and added others. You’re even more creative than usual this week and will figure out a way to realize certain additions and subtractions to your scene. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ve learned not to prize the correctness, which is among the most boring virtues. The mature person doesn’t need to be right all the time. Success and creativity require a tolerance for mistakes. Your big strength this week is a willingness to face inaccuracies, thus honing better methods and higher truths. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ve demanded more of your performance than is reasonable or kind. What’s really needed is more practice. How can you arrange this? What would it take to repeat the action until it’s second nature? Relaxation is key here, too. When you feel yourself tighten up, take a breath and try another way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What stands between you and what you want may seem like a lot -- people, rules, power structures, physical barriers, detritus -and yet when you move forward, you’ll find your energy disperses in such a way as to flow softly past all obstacles. True to your water sign nature, you will find the path of least resistance. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). To accept the good with the bad becomes much easier when you understand that you cannot possibly know which is which. Whatever your philosophy may be these days, the action that will fall right in line with it is to open to acceptance. These are the right events for this time; believe it.

THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS

You’re on a quest for beauty, and you’ll find much of it this solar return, though even when complexity and trouble show up instead, you’ll deem this journey utterly worthwhile. Following a passion, you’ll hone your skills. You’ll add members to your team who not only fulfill a job but make you laugh, too. Rearranging your environment and schedule is important work, too. As you make yourself more comfortable, you provide a sense of belonging to others. You’ll grow in compassion.

Thinking things through East dealer. East-West vulnerable. NORTH ♠A4 ♥ A 10 5 ♦ 10 9 4 3 ♣ K 10 8 7 WEST EAST ♠KJ952 ♠Q8 ♥J 7 6 3 ♥Q 9 8 2 ♦K62 ♦75 ♣5 ♣9 6 4 3 2 SOUTH ♠ 10 7 6 3 ♥K 4 ♦AQJ8 ♣A Q J The bidding: East South West North Pass 1 NT Pass 3 NT Opening lead — five of spades. Good card-reading is an art unto itself. Declarer does not actually see the defenders’ hands as each card is played, but many times he can visualize their holdings just as if they were in open view. Take this case where South was not alert to a situation he could have deduced without much effort. He ducked the spade lead, East winning with the queen and returning a spade to dummy’s ace. Declarer could count eight sure tricks and saw that the ninth would have to come from a successful finesse in diamonds. So he led the ten of diamonds at trick two and

let it ride. West won with the king and cashed his spades, and South went down one. The simple fact is that declarer’s focus at the start of play as to where his ninth trick might come from was basically misplaced. Instead, he should have expended more energy on determining the meaning of West’s opening lead. West’s five-of-spades lead was highly revealing. It was inconceivable that he would have led the five from a holding of, say, the K-Q-J5-4, in which case he would have led the king. Declarer could therefore assume that East had the king, queen or jack, which in turn meant that the ace was the right play from dummy at trick one. Observe what happens in the actual case if declarer takes the first spade with the ace. Whatever East plays on the trick, the defenders cannot cash four spade tricks after declarer takes a losing diamond finesse at trick two. If West leads a spade to East’s queen, East has no spade to return, while if West cashes the K-J of spades, South’s ten becomes a stopper. If it turns out that East’s original holding is three spades headed by an honor, which is certainly possible, there’s still nothing to fear. In that case, West started with only four spades, so the defenders cannot score five tricks.

Tomorrow: Deceptive defensive play.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You do the hard things when they come along, and you’re grateful for the opportunity that lives inside a challenge. Even so, it would be foolish to seek out trouble or create problems where they don’t already exist. Not everything in life is easy, but certainly a lot of it should be! Seek ease this week.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have style and it shines through all the time, but those close to you have gotten used to it. They don’t take you for granted because they are horrible people; they take you for granted because it’s human nature. This week, you’ll spend time in a new environment and love all the props and attention you get there.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You do your best to frame the past in a way that doesn’t have you feeling resentful. It’s not too hard for you because you really do believe that everyone is only doing the best they can. In some cases, it wasn’t enough, but you will get what you need elsewhere. New opportunities for healing arise in fresh faces.

Sandra Lindsay Awarded Presidential Medal of Freedom D

11

Northwell Health nurse honored at White House ceremony

uring a special ceremony held at the White House last month, President Joseph R. Biden bestowed the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Sandra Lindsay, RN, DHSc, for becoming the first American to receive an approved Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccine and her continued advocacy for public health equity. The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the nation’s highest civilian honor, presented to individuals who have made exceptionally meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace and cultural or other significant public or private endeavors. Sixteen others received the high honor with Dr. Lindsay in recognition of their accomplishments and advocacy to drive change. Dr. Lindsay is the first Jamaican-born Jamaican American to receive the medal. “At 18 years old, Sandra Lindsay immigrated to Queens, NY from Jamaica to pursue her dream of becoming a nurse. During the height of the pandemic, she poured her heart into helping patients fight for their lives and to keep her fellow nurses safe. And when the time came, she was the first American to become fully vaccinated outside of clinical trials,” President Biden said. “Sandra, as I told you before, if there are any angels in heaven, they are all nurses. Sandra’s vaccination card, hospital scrubs and badge are part of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History’s exhibit on COVID-19 and today she receives our nation’s highest civilian honor.” Other honorees include gymnast Simone Biles, former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, Olympic gold medalist Megan Rapinoe, Brigadier General Wilma Vaught and actor Denzel Washington. Among the recipients is fellow Long Islander, Father Alexander Karloutsos, pastor of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church of the Hamptons in Southampton, who has counseled several U.S. presidents. The Presidential Medal of Freedom was established in 1963; since then, more than 650 medals have been bestowed. On December 14, 2020, the world watched as Dr. Lindsay, a critical care nurse, made history when she rolled up her sleeve and received the first Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Pfizer vaccine at Long Island Jewish Medical Center (LIJ-MC). Since then, Dr. Lindsay has been a vocal proponent of the need for vaccinations and has made it a personal mission to dispel medical misinformation and fight for equal health care access across the globe. “During the pandemic, while working

Services Outstanding Americans by Choice recognition during a special naturalization ceremony. Since the historic vaccine shot, Dr. Lindsay has worked tirelessly to spread a message to eliminate vaccine hesitancy in the U.S. and abroad. Last March, Dr. Lindsay met with the President of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Abdulla Shahid, about the importance of vaccinating citizens of underserved nations. Last year, Northwell Health and Dr. Lindsay donated items from the historic day to the Smithsonian Institute, including her vaccination record card, scrubs, employee identification badge and the now-empty Pfizer-BioNTech vial, along with other items.

with my fellow nurses and colleagues on the frontlines, we waited for that sliver of hope—a vaccine—to help keep us going. It was an honor to raise my hand and volunteer to take the vaccine,” said Dr. Lindsay. “I am beyond thankful to President Biden for recognizing that momentous day and my continued efforts to end vaccine hesitancy and promote health care for everyone, no matter where you live, who you are, or the color of your skin.” Dr. Lindsay has more than 27 years of nursing experience, most of which in critical care. During the pandemic, Dr. Lindsay was responsible for leading a team of nurses in some of the sickest COVID-19 wards at LIJ-MC. Northwell Health, the largest health

care provider in New York, was the nation’s epicenter of the pandemic in March 2020 and has since treated more than 300,000 COVID-19 patients through all of its facilities, which include 21 hospitals. “Sandra is the embodiment of courage and selflessness. That small brave act of getting the vaccine has rippled across the world and continues to leave a lasting impact,” said Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health. “We are proud of Sandra and what she represents to our Northwell family and beyond.” This is Dr. Lindsay’s second trip to the White House and meeting with President Biden. Last July, Dr. Lindsay was given the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration

Northwell Health made history by vaccinating the first person in the United States against COVID-19. On Dec. 14, 2020, it injected Pfizer Inc.’s medication into Sandra Lindsay, an intensive care nurse. Lindsay’s participation kick-started a long-anticipated vaccination deployment program throughout the US, as well as the first phase of Northwell’s three-stage rollout to essential frontline hospital personnel. Physicians, nurses and any staff member working in direct contact with COVID-19 patients will also soon receive the first of the two-dose regimen. After receiving the injection, Lindsay said, “I feel great. It didn’t feel any different that when receiving the annual influenza vaccine. I hope this marks the beginning to the end of a very painful time in our history. I want to instill public confidence that the vaccine is safe. We’re in a pandemic and so we all need to do our part to put an end to the pandemic and to not give up too soon. There’s light at the end of the tunnel.” The vaccine has demonstrated 95 percent efficacy against infection with minimal side effects, and works on messenger RNA (mRNA) technology, which has been in development for several years. —Submitted by Northwell Health

SCOPE Summer Center Returns To Manhasset

tudents in grades K-6 from the Manhasset Public Schools welcomed the SCOPE Summer Center Enrichment Program back with open arms this July. For the past two years, the program was paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Held at Munsey Park Elementary School, the Summer Center Enrichment Program has been a staple in the Manhasset community for years. Students are invited to pick from session offerings based on their grade level that pique their interest. Sponsored by SCOPE Education Services, the half-day program is split into two sessions for the summer and contain different enriching experiences. Fifty-six students participated in the first session which was held from July 5-15. They engaged in classes such as coding and robotics, comic book and

graphic novel design, international adventure sports, music and art, jewelry and fashion design and a team sports clinic. The second session of the program ran from July 18-29 and had 37 students enrolled. Students enjoyed basketball boot camp, extreme STEAM and makerspace, LEGO engineering, primary coding, rocketry and retro science, summer arts and crafts (K-1) and theater. All the sessions are interactive and allow students to explore their creativity, meet new friends, learn something new, stay active and most importantly, have fun, while school is out. The program has been a great resource for the community and the Manhasset School District is thrilled to have it back this summer for students to enjoy. —Submitted by the Manhasset Public Schools

Art Inspired To Benefit Cancer Fighters

T

he Katie Oppo Research Fund (KORF) hosted an Art Auction and Competition on June 26 at the Congregational Church in Manhasset. The event, a first of its kind, brought together families of artists from the Manhasset Middle School, Shelter Rock Elementary School and Munsey Park Elementary School. Cailey Held, a junior from Manhasset high school, thought of

the idea and organized the event. Cailey said she was inspired because she loves to help her community. She is involved with many clubs and organizations dedicated to supporting the Manhasset community, such as Manhasset Soccer’s Adaptive Soccer Program, the Key Club, Manhasset High School Peer Responder program, Student Athlete Leadership Team, and the Girl Scouts.

Donna Marie Briguet

Donna Marie Briguet was born on September 11, 1964 in the Bronx, New York, the third child of Ann and John Houseman. A product of Catholic education her entire life, Donna graduated from Our Lady of Mercy grammar school in 1978 and St. Francis Preparatory High School in 1982. She earned a B.S. in Finance from Fordham University in December, 1985. Donna taught Kindergarten and first grade at St. Joan of Arc in Jackson Heights where she also coached softball for many years. Donna found her “life partner’’ in Eric Briguet, while at Fordham. They married in 1990. The highlight of her life was the arrival of her “special girls”: Nicole Therese in 1993 and Noelle Ann in 2000. After moving to Manhasset in June, 2000, Donna coached PAL softball for both daughters, volunteered as a CCD teacher at St. Mary’s and also served as a Girl Scout leader. Donna was passionate about her garden and loved all aspects of nature, especially the beaches in Montauk. Deeply devoted to her family, she was the “glue” that held four generations together. She was a fantastic cook who enjoyed entertaining family and friends. Her door was always open to one and all. She was generous in all aspects of her life: her time, her talent, and her treasure; she quietly supported many charities. Donna was an active parishioner at St. Mary’s where she frequently attended daily liturgy, and participated in scripture study. She found peace in prayer and lived out the words of the prophet Micah: “to act justly, to love tenderly, to serve one another, and to walk humbly with God.” In addition to her parents, husband and children, Donna is survived by her siblings, Theresa and John (Patty) Houseman, many cousins, nieces, nephews, godchildren and friends. Donna will be remembered for her passionate spirit, love of life and her dry sense of humor. Donna was incredibly proud of her daughter Noelle’s work with the B+ Foundation, the largest provider of financial assistance to families of kids with cancer in the U.S. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to: UDance B+ Foundation, in Memory of Donna Briguet.

North Shore University Hospital Golf Benefit Raises $376K

M

ore than 160 golfers and guests raised $376,000 at the 43rd annual North Shore University Hospital (NSUH) Auxiliary Golf Classic with proceeds going to support renovation of the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The all-volunteer Auxiliary of North Shore University Hospital has supported the hospital and community through various fundraising programs for more than 69 years. This year’s event, which took place at the Glen Oaks Club in Old Westbury on July 11, honored Michael D. Morici, Sr., Esq, founding and managing partner of Morici & Morici, LLP, and Laurence M Epstein, MD, system director of electrophysiology at Northwell Health. “Our Auxiliary Golf Classic is a wonderful summer tradition that’s been a significant driver of community engagement and support for North Shore,” said Jon Sendach, executive director at NSUH. “This year’s Classic helped raise funds for crucial NICU upgrades. It underscores the fact that Northwell Health delivers 1 percent of all babies born in the United States and North Shore University Hospital is a premier destination for expectant moms.”

The Auxiliary made a 10-year pledge to raise $2 million toward the renovation of NICU in 2016, which it completed well ahead of schedule at the end of 2021. The volunteer organization then began a second $2 million pledge to support the NICU. “The all-volunteer Auxiliary works tirelessly all year to raise funds towards our $2 million pledge for the renovation and
