Owls Stand Near Apex Of Avian Hierarchy BY FRANK RIZZO
ew York State is host to eight species of nesting owls, and most have found a home on Long Island. Our many preserves give bird watchers the best opportunity to see and hear these nocturnal hunters. As a bonus, winter time brings the migration of majestic snowy owls, a rare bird of the species that hunts by day. They will find their hunting grounds on the dunes of our beaches and marshes on the south shore. The haunting nocturnal calls of owls have entranced and intrigued humans for millenia. Aesop, in his fables, attributed wisdom to the birds, part of the anthropomorphizing of animals that our species is partial to. The attribute has stuck, and across disparate cultures and times, the owl has inspired awe and has been integrated into many mythologies.
By virtue of its geography, Long Island is home to an abundance and variety of birds, and owls can be counted among its avian census. Owls are more often heard than seen, and their coloring and feather patterns help camouflage them as they roost among the foliage. Whether in a preserve, or park, or even in wooded suburban residential

areas, these solitary raptors usually start their search for food (mainly small mammals) when the twilight begins. Their hunting prowess starts with their eyes, forward facing and enabling binocular vision that puts their intended target in a three-dimensional field. From their perches in trees or any high post with an unobstructed view of open ground, they will pinpoint their next meal with excellent night vision. Even if it cannot see the animal, the owl’s acute hearing—thought to be enhanced and amplified by their flat faces with slight curves and asymmetrical ears—can

to observe the birds at the annual adults-only Owl Prowl on Saturday, Oct. 29 from 6:308:30 p.m. at the Sands Point Preserve, 127 Middle Neck Rd., Sands Point. According to a press release, this “is a wonderful opportunity to hear the Preserve’s wild owls calling in the woods. The program begins with an indoor presentation by biologist and Ranger Eric Powers. We’ll learn how to identify owls by sight and sound, and how to attract these beneficial birds to your own backyard. Then we’ll head out for a very quiet guided night walk in search of owls and other nighttime wildlife using a fun, safe, and easy method. Ranger Eric will teach you how to develop your own night vision—flashlights are not needed.” Admission is $10 per car/ members, $20 per car/ non-members. Pay at the Gatehouse. Fee includes parking.
pinpoint animals under the cover of tall grasses or leaves and even snow. It is reported that owls can hear the virtually silent footsteps of tiny mammals and even the heartbeat of a mouse at many yards. Among their virtues are special feathers that enable the birds— some of whom, like the great horned owl, may have wingspans north of five feet—to fly silently and pounce upon skittish animals that would otherwise flee at any sound of danger. Nature also gifted the bird with talons that exert as much as five times the pressure as a human hand grip. The talons, according to an online source, “have locking tendons that enable owls to grip their prey or hold on to branches without having to constantly contract muscles.” Owls, like hawks and eagles (fellow members of the order strigiformes) swallow their kill whole (or in large portions) and produce pellets—portions of their prey that they cannot digest. Scientists study these to determine the birds’ feeding patterns and what kind of animal was eaten. A good source of information for bird lovers in general is the South Shore Audubon Society, www.ssaudubon.org, or the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, www. birds.cornell.edu.
he North Fork of Long Island is chock full of many things, especially grapes. Although extremely popular in the spring and summer, vineyards are also crowded during the fall season, especially for adults who want a break between apple and pumpkin picking with the kids. Wine lovers from near and far look forward to tastings by the glass, pairing meats and cheeses and leaving with several bottles of grape goodness to take home. It’s a day out to relax, have fun and enjoy the crisp autumn weather. But with so many wineries to choose from, how do you pick just one?

Delicious Dessert That Melts In Your Mouth BY ELIZABETH JOHNSON
t’s apple picking season and time to make wonderful fall desserts that will make your mouth water and your family ask for “more please.” Nothing is more wholesome than good olde fashioned apple pie.

Each of those autumnal growths—gourds, squash and pumpkins—all come from the same family, Cucurbitaceae, which includes more than 700 species. According to the Missouri Botanical Garden, names differ throughout the world, but in the U.S., any round, orange squash used for pies or jack-o-lanterns is likely to be called a pumpkin. But the term “pumpkin” really has no botanical meaning, as they are actually all squash. Squash are divided into two categories: tender or summer squash, and hardskinned or winter squash. Examples of summer squash include zucchini, pattypan, straightneck, crookneck and other types. Winter squash include small to medium hard-skinned squash such as the acorn, small hubbard, miniature pumpkin and spaghetti types, as well as the large hard-skinned types, including banana, butternuts, cheese pumpkins and large hubbards, among others. Then there are the likes of Wildsippe Argentinien, Trombolino d’Albenga, Napolitaner Kürbis and Triambelkürbis and hundreds
more that sound less like a gourd and more like a 15th-century explorer. But fear not on the farm, as you probably won’t find yourself trying to distinguish between two barely pronounceable species. Delving back in time, hard-skinned, inedible gourds have been used in various ways throughout history with cultures spanning the globe fashioning gourds into bowls, cups, musical instruments, tools, artwork and birdhouses. Today—mostly on Etsy and Pinterest— gourds are commonly used for a vast array of crafts, including jewelry, furniture, dishes, utensils and a wide variety of decorations using carving, burning and other techniques. For anyone that would rather eat than craft, look to the squash. This healthy and versatile gift from the Earth can be used to make Parmesan-roasted acorn squash, butternut soup, acorn squash ravioli, risotto, squash ribbons and much more. When it comes to the fall products of the local farm, follow this simple rule of thumb: If it’s a squash, eat it and if it’s a gourd, leave it—or take it home and put it on your window sill.

In The Kitchen: Simmer Down With Hilary Duff BY JENNIFER FAUCI
Sharing one of her favorite recipes for tailgating and fall fêtes with girlfriends, Hilary Duff, like anyone ready to welcome fall, loves a good, old-fashioned stew. “Warm, savory stews and a glass of red wine make the perfect cozy meal on a chilly fall evening,” she said. “I love a hearty and healthy bean and chicken sausage stew paired with Callie Collection’s Fresh Red Blend,” added Duff of the brand’s new red wine. Easy and delicious, Duff’s stew is simple to make by yourself, but more fun when prepared with friends for a comfy night in. “Making a soup or stew may seem intimidating, but it is actually incredibly
The actress and singer-songwriter recently teamed up with Callie Collection wines for her autumn dining menu easy—especially when you get your girls to help you,” she said. “Sometimes we put the ‘group’ in ‘soup’ by asking each of my friends to bring one simple ingredient, like kale, chicken broth or olive oil. We chop, chat and sip wine while the stew simmers, and enjoy our amazing meal.” Try Duff’s stew recipe and pick up a bottle of Callie Collection wines,
available at wine retailers for $13.99.

Catching & Eating Blues, What A Delight and shared a pastrami sandwich. All of a sudden the wind picked up and so did the fishing. We all began to drop our silver, diamond jigs to the bottom being careful not to get bitten by the razor sharp teeth of our catch as they flopped onto the deck of our boat. The ZOX’S KITCHEN fish kept hitting our lines as we began the heady Chef Alan Zox experience of catching of getting out on the water. fish at a remarkable pace.

We were Everyone was awestruck already hungry by 10 a.m. and uncertain what to do so we opened our cooler except to keep fishing.
Bluefish Recipe Serves 4
1. Heat oven to 425 degrees Farenheit or a grill until charcoals are white. Toss smoked paprika on top of sliced lemons placed on fillets. 2. Cook on a sheet tray on the middle rack for 10-12 minutes or on your outdoor grill. You need not turn the fish over. Within 10 minutes or so, the fish is done. A good test is when your fork easily cuts through the white flesh (dark flesh is fat). If your fish is too moist cook 5 minutes more. No need to turn over. 3. Another cooking option is to wrap your catch in foil with aromatics like capers, mayo, chopped plum tomatoes, red onions, a sprig of thyme and basil, a branch of fennel, 1 oz. of butter with a pinch of salt and cayenne to taste. So delicious.
The captain knew that if the funnel moved towards us, let alone struck us, we could capsize. But just as quickly as it arose it disappeared back to the surface. We were dumbstruck and relieved over our good fortune. By day’s end we had caught our fill of blues and Captain Tony turned around and headed home. Fishing had never been such a thrill. Eating those blues wasn’t too bad either.
Here’s a summer or fall fishing challenge and a culinary delight. Fish with a big boat if you have one or lease a 50-foot “headboat” that carries up to 40 voracious seamen who pay a captain to catch fish. Rods and reels and bait are provided along with radar to find your fish of choice. My brother and I enjoyed these outings off the Montauk and Connecticut shores. If conditions are right, you can land several fish in a couple hours. Be sure to bring a small bat because their teeth are sharp. Summer and fall brings schools of bluefish and stripers to the Eastern shores that challenge the best of us. We always enjoyed fishing for these species because of their fight and flavor. We also loved the process of driving early in the morning to the docks to meet our fishing boat and the excitement

Cider And Donuts And Pies, Oh My! Jericho Cider Mill is open year-round BY NICOLE LOCKWOOD
ericho Cider Mill, a fall destination staple for Long Island natives and visitors alike, has opened its doors to the eager public yet again, but this time for good. Due to overwhelming demand, the market-style mill broke with its usual tradition of opening during the autumn months and is now welcoming patrons year round, which has proved to be a great success thus far.
“We did renovations and made it into a bigger store, so we just decided let’s stay open all year,” said Ted Ketsoglou, manager of Jericho Cider Mill. “Business has been great, the customers have been going crazy over it.” As indicated by the name, the Jericho Cider Mill is best known for its apple cider, served both hot and chilled, which can be bought by the cup, the half gallon or gallon. Since everything, from pies to donuts to ice cream, is made on-site, products have an element of freshness that cannot be matched by similar store-bought items. Though the place can be easily missed when driving by, tucked a few feet off Route 106, the Jericho Cider Mill is met each day
18A | AUTUMN! 2017
by a large influx of customers. Shoppers who come from near and far enjoy Jericho Cider Mill favorites such as cider donuts and ice cream, which comes in unique flavors such as apple chunk, sea salt caramel, pumpkin and chocolate cake roll. “Cider donuts are literally out of control,” said Ketsoglou. “We cannot make them fast enough. It’s like an addiction. People come from Manhattan, Brooklyn, and all over Long Island just to buy them. Between that and the ice cream, it’s been a huge success.” It is hard to part from some of the classics that the Jericho Cider Mill has to offer, but the newest editions to their repertoire of delectable creations are worth the try.
The first item of note is an adult spin on the classic cider, known as Route 106 Hard Cider. The masterminds behind the cider mill operation have paired with Oyster Bay Brewing Company, another local hotspot about a 10-minute car ride away. “We’ve had a lot of requests from people to do a hard cider, so we made the decision to go with Oyster Bay Brewing Company because they’re local and because they’re really hands-on,” said Ketsoglou. Jericho Cider Mill ships hundreds of gallons of their original apple cider to Oyster Bay Brewing Company, where they add yeast, ferment the liquid and transform it into the boozy fall beverage. Route 106 Hard Cider is only available for purchase at Oyster Bay Brewing Company, but its popularity has been surging regardless, becoming a social media sensation. The second delectable addition is their cider cheesecake, a typical cheesecake topped with an apple cider glaze. Though nearly perfect as is, this rich dessert can be made even better when paired with one of the ice cream varieties, a tall glass of apple cider (original or hard), or both. Even though the cider joint is now open year-round, it is the perfect time to stop by and get into the fall spirit. Jericho Cider Mill is open every day of the week from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit jerichocider. com or call 516-433-3360.

Why Biographies Matter
The Shadow in the Garden: A Biographer’s Tale by James Atlas BY JOE SCOTCHIE
n the fall of 1975, James Atlas, a young scholar at work on a biography of the modernist poet Delmore Schwartz, caught a break. Saul Bellow would publish Humboldt’s Gift, a sprawling comic novel about the friendship between a doomed poet and a Chicago writer, whose own career was in a tailspin. Charles Citrine was the Bellow-like character. The poet, long dead during the novel’s action period, was Von Humboldt Fleisher, a character immediately identified as being based largely on Schwartz. Humboldt’s Gift won a Pulitzer Prize. It sat on top of the best seller lists for months and, in 1976, Bellow would win the Nobel Prize for Literature. Dead for nearly a decade, Schwartz was now hot. His stories and criticism were reissued. The times were right for a biography. And when Atlas, then only 28, published his Schwartz biography in 1977, it made the coveted front page of The New York Times book review page, while also being a finalist for the National Book Award. Atlas, like Bellow, a native of “Chicagoland,” was now off on his own literary career. After turning down a proposed biography on Edmund Wilson, Atlas eventually settled on a study of Bellow himself. There was always something inevitable about the biographer of Delmore Schwartz following up with one on Schwartz’s old friend. The Shadow in the Garden tells the history of not just those two efforts, but also the genre itself. Atlas can be a little hard on himself, the art of the biography and even his most famous subject. Atlas is an able reader of texts. (He spent years as a contributor to The New York Times Magazine.) He is also a published novelist (The Great Pretender) and that, to me, made him a perfect match for a Bellow biography. The latter was the most energetic prose stylist of his generation and Atlas’s eventual biography was written in a similarly readable and entertaining style. The man and the subject had met. The Shadow in the Garden

covers familiar ground in the history of biography: Plutarch on the lives of ancient Romans, Boswell on Dr. Johnson, Lynton Strachey on the Victorians, Leon Edel on Henry James, Richard Ellman on James Joyce, plus a chapter on Richard Holmes, whose biography of the English romantic poet, Shelley, is also considered a masterpiece. Along the way, Atlas relates the joys of biography: Research brought him into contact with a colorful array of New York and Chicago intellectuals—Alfred Kazin, Dwight Macdonald, Philip Rahv, Edward Shils and Clement Greenberg—all conjuring up the days when an essay in a “little magazine” such as Partisan Review could shape the thinking of a generation. These men spent decades in pursuit of the life of the mind: Steeped in the literature, history and philosophy of the West, they labored mightily to add refinement to the coarseness of American culture. Retired and in most cases living in obscurity, such men, especially the irrepressible Macdonald, were glad to help the young Atlas; they both supported his efforts while offering unsparing criticism to his manuscripts in process. Chapter XIII in this book, one that recalls McDonald’s larger-than-life presence, was first published in 1983 in Vanity Fair, a reading experience that has remained evergreen to this reviewer. Years later, while working on the Bellow biography, Atlas received a book-length critique of his manuscript from Edward Shils, Bellow’s colleague from the University of Chicago and a man who had a serious falling out with the novelist. For the Bellow biography, Atlas managed to forge a friendship with his wary subject. There was an unspoken acknowledgment
To be a biographer, one must dig, dig, dig, perform years of research, using that trusty phone book to track down every friend and acquaintance of one’s subject. As important, the biographer of a literary figure must know his subject’s work inside and out. that whenever Atlas finished the book, Bellow would likely have passed. Bellow was published in 2000 and the novelist was not only alive, he was plenty active, publishing a novel, Ravelstein, about his friendship with Allan Bloom, while fathering a child with his young wife, a former graduate school student. With publication, battle lines were quickly drawn. Bellow received praise in many quarters and was hailed as one of the top biographies of the year, but pro-Bellow forces also aligned against it, including a negative review in The New Republic, that was certainly the longest essay in that journal’s 102-year history. Bellow himself went on National Public Radio to criticize the book, which was a shame, since the two had formed an easy relationship. Atlas also announced that he would never again write a biography. That, too, was regrettable. Macdonald has had his biography published, but think of Kazin and Shils. These are books-in-waiting. A lesson here is that biographers who tackle a
living subject do end up becoming friends with the subject, but once the book comes out, the friendship generally ends and often badly so. No biographer can write hagiography, but no living subject likes to see his warts revealed for posterity. This reviewer knows this from experience. For Atlas, biography is a genre of real importance. A top biography, like a great poem or a novel, is a work of art destined to last for the ages. Like a great novel, it can be both a history of the times and a window into human behavior. No biography can entirely capture their subject. Still, biographies are vital, not for gossip, but to tell one improbable story after another. Those real-life stories can do more than inspire; they can literally change the life of the reader as much as any other artistic experience. Joe Scotchie, editor of The Roslyn News, is the author of biographies on Richard M. Weaver, Thomas Wolfe and Patrick J. Buchanan.

The Four Fs Of Fall Fashion BY NICOLE LOCKWOOD
Functional and fashionable, fur garments are the perfect way to keep warm during those chilly autumn nights. If you opt for a cruelty-free lifestyle, faux fur is just as stylish an alternative.
t’s never been easier to stay on top of the latest trends this fall, as the world of fashion is currently being fueled by the four Fs: fringe, florals, fur and fire engine red. As seen on the runways of New York Fashion Week, designers are returning to retro styles, blending elements that marked prior decades, while adding their unique modern touches. High-end labels like Versace, Alexander McQueen, Givenchy and Stella McCartney are once again setting the tone for emerging styles this season, but keeping your closet up to date doesn’t necessarily have to break the bank.
Though flowers are no longer in bloom, bring a touch of spring to the season with what the industry is calling “couch florals.” Reminiscent of grandma’s favorite futon, these prints are popping up in more than just thrift shops.
The midwestern-esque trend that made its big runway debut in the early summer months isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Embraced by top designers and discount brands alike, the flouncy fringe look can now be seen on clothing, shoes, jewelry, handbags and more.

Must-Have Fall Scents BY JENNIFER FAUCI
Warm Apple Pie
othing says autumn like the smell of pumpkin and apple cinnamon. While these two notable scents are the hallmark of sweaters, harvest festivals and chilly nights, there are so many other aromas to heighten your senses this season. So grab your candles, plug-ins and sprays and fill your home with the fragrances of fall.
Glade $2.99 The other iconic scent of the season, apple cinnamon comes in several variations that all smell the same: delicious. If you can’t find apple cinnamon, try cinnamon apple, apple spice and apple cider to get that nostalgic aroma.
Bourbon and Vanilla
Harlow & Bentley $39.99—$55 Warm up your bones with the scent of vanilla bourbon in this soy candle. An actual glass of bourbon by the fire couldn’t hurt either.
Yankee Candle $27.99 Plain and simple, the taste of a fresh, juicy apple is mouthwatering enough and even sweeter in your home. More subtle than apple spiced candles, Macintosh Apple will make your house smell like a trip to the orchards.
Chesapeake Bay Candle $3.99 From the cranberry chutney at Thanksgiving to the frosted cranberries at Christmas, cranberry is a scent that can be carried throughout both seasons. Cranberry cider is the perfect, fragrant blend of tart and sweet.
Henri Bendel $25 Don’t have a fireplace to give off that crackling, warm scent of burning wood? Try burning a wood-scented candle instead. This candle draws notes of cedarwood, birch, sandalwood and amber for that feel-good cozy night in.
Bath & Body Works $12.50 Apple picking means one thing: fresh baked apple pie. Not a baker? Burning this apple pie-scented candle should do the trick. Want a bit more flavor? Try adding a caramel or brown sugar candle to the mix.
36A | AUTUMN! 2017
PLANTING FIELDS FOUNDATION PRESENTS Cashmere Woods
Glade $7.65 The oaky and amber aroma of a day spent in the woods is what you’ll get when you light this candle.
Yankee Candle $27.99 Ah, the signature scent of the fall season. Pumpkin everything is available at your fingertips. If pumpkin lattes, cheesecakes, pies and muffins aren’t your thing, embrace the gourd by just burning a pumpkin spice candle.
Yankee Candle $27.99 Maple smells delicious on its own, but when walnuts and pecans are added to the mix, the nutty undertones exude the warmth of a cozy, morning breakfast.
HAUNTED HALLOWEEN NIGHTS ~ AT COE HALL ~
Yankee Candle $27.99 When the juicy taste of pears meets savory spices, it is the perfect recipe for a tasty dessert. Now the smell can linger long after guests have enjoyed a sweet end to a meal.
Yankee Candle $27.99 What does a pile of leaves smell like? Apparently like pomegranate, orange blossom, white pine needles, juniper berry, rosemary, birch leaf, red maple leaf and dried persimmon tree leaves... if you’re burning this candle.
Yankee Candle $27.99 Mulled wine and apple cider on their own and spiked, are a deliciously warm way to welcome autumn and they make your house smell amazing. Keep the scent going with a mulling spices candle.

Warm & Toasty
Get cozy in your yard with a fire pit BY LEIGH ANDERSON
hen autumn rolls in, the days get shorter and the nights grow cooler, with warm breezes giving way to crisp autumn air and falling leaves. But, that doesn’t mean outdoor fun has to cease. Many Long Islanders have discovered the secret to extending their evenings and enjoying their outdoor living spaces well into the fall: fire pits.
Fire pits have skyrocketed in popularity over the past two decades due to their effectiveness in keeping bugs away, the vast decrease in the price of natural gas and a widespread desire to remain outside even after summer has supposedly come to a close, says Bill Brunner, owner of Westbury Stove & Fireplace and Huntington Fireplace & Outdoor Living. “It’s a lifestyle. More and more people want to be outside, not stuck in the house or looking at a screen,” said Brunner, who has
both a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen. Over the past year, he said that the fire pit has become the most frequently requested amenity for luxury homes on Long Island. “People are entertaining more in their backyards,” said Dennis Lawrence, owner of Taylor’s Hearth & Leisure in Franklin Square, adding that nowadays, putting in a fire pit is “kind of a no-brainer when designing a backyard.” Fire pits have become the centerpieces of numerous Long
Island properties. Some of the more recently installed, trendier fire pits have been designed like countertops or coffee tables, explains Lawrence, allowing people to congregate around them and put
their drinks down, creating a lively, social atmosphere. For a more modern aesthetic, many people have chosen the style of pyro-glass in the middle as opposed to the traditional look of ceramic logs.

Unlike fire tables, which operate with a propane tank underneath, fire pits are fueled by a gas line connected from the house. Though fire pits are considered the more refined of the two, both allow homeowners to enjoy their backyards later in the year. When selecting a fire pit, it’s important to consider what works best with the yard’s size and layout. Brunner highlights the importance of consulting a professional before taking on the project of purchasing a fire pit and having it installed, as there is much to contemplate—safety, space and budget. He explains that some burners consume more gas in less time than others and, for this reason, he finds the manufacturer Warming Trends most reliable, describing its product as “a very innovative patent that allows for double the flame with half the gas.” The material used to construct the pit should also be considered. Lawrence emphasizes his preference for the manufacturers HPC and American Outdoors for their durable stainless-steel bases, which are built to withstand the elements. The outer-stone construction should also be taken into account. Brunner said that a common and costly mistake people often make is having a fire pit or outdoor kitchen constructed from black granite. Since darker materials get much hotter than lighter ones, the choice of a dark color results in a higher risk of burns. For this reason,
Brunner advises buyers to go with a lighter-colored granite, marble or a mineral called dekton. For safety, Brunner suggests that the pit’s barrier be constructed at least a foot wide. He recommends having a wind guard to keep the flame in its designated area. Taking all these aspects into consideration, homeowners can often choose the design, shape and size of their fire pit, creating a custom project that both Lawrence and Brunner say usually costs between $3,000 and $9,000. The price becomes more costly as the size of the fire pit increases. For those who want to sit around an outdoor fire without spending as much, fire tables are a less expensive option that typically cost from $1,000 to $2,000 and have the benefit of not being bound to one position in the yard. But, whether buyers choose a fire pit or a fire table, they can rest assured that they are making a good, long-lasting investment. “[Outdoor fire pits] are not only the fastest-growing part of the business, but the [part] that get[s] the most positive feedback after the fact,” Brunner said. Fire pits allow people to spend quality time with friends and family without going out. Instead, they are putting “pride and money into their backyard[s],” said Lawrence. Relaxing outside on a lounge chair, surrounded by family and friends and warmed by a fire is the perfect way to greet autumn.

He enlists a new recruit to connect the old cases to the new one before it snows again. This thriller will have you on the edge of your seat.
Blade Runner 2049 (R)
The Mountain Between Us (PG-13)
Also on Oct. 6, The Mountain Between Us hits theaters. Directed by Hany Abu-Assad, the movie stars Kate Winslet, Idris Elba and Dermot Mulroney. Bad weather cancels a flight for strangers Dr. Ben Bass and photojournalist Alex Martin. As a result, they both decide to book a charter plane so they can arrive at their destinations timely. Midway through their flight, the plane crashes in a snow covered mountain, killing the pilot, however, they both sustain injuries and survive. Together, they must forge a bond in order to trek across the wilderness when they realize a flight plan wasn’t filed. Winslet gives a riveting performance.
Oct. 6 sees the debut of Blade Runner 2049. Directed by Denis Villeneuve, the film stars Harrison Ford (reprising his original role from 1982), Ryan Gosling, Ana de Arma and Robin Wright. Blade Runners are law enforcement people who are assigned to eliminate replicates who are androids that look like real humans.

This journey leads him to track down Rick Deckard, the original blade runner, who has been missing for 30 years.
Sterling K. Brown jumps from the television screen to the silver screen on Oct. 13, when Marshall arrives in theaters. The film is directed by Reginald Hudlin and stars Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson and Brown in this true story of Thurgood Marshall before he became the first AfricanAmerican Supreme Court Justice. Early in his career, he was a young defiant attorney for the NAACP and landed a challenging case with an inexperienced attorney, Sam Friedman.

The film stars Haley Bennett, Miles Teller and Amy Schumer and is a biography/drama/ war film that follows a group of young U.S. soldiers who return from Iraq with trouble adapting back into their civilian life and with their family.

New, Unified Airport At LaGuardia Now Fully Underway BY ANTON MEDIA STAFF
overnor Andrew Cuomo, together with Delta Airlines CEO Ed Bastian, recently announced the start of construction on Delta’s new facilities at a groundbreaking ceremony at LaGuardia Airport after the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey signed a new, long-term lease with Delta. The groundbreaking marks the beginning of construction on the final component of the entirely new, unified airport at LaGuardia, which will provide all LaGuardia travelers with state-of-theart amenities and expanded public transportation, including the planned AirTrain.
“LaGuardia is a pillar of New York’s transportation network and a key driver of economic growth, but for too long the airport has been unworthy of New York State,” Cuomo said. “The groundbreaking at Delta’s facilities represents another step forward as we build an entirely new airport at LaGuardia. Together with our private sector partners, we are making rapid progress to create the world-class gateway to the Empire State that
New Yorkers deserve.” Cuomo also announced a breakthrough with LaGuardia Gateway Partners (LGP), the firm that is building the western half of the airport. JLC Infrastructure, a joint venture comprising Magic Johnson Enterprises and Loop Capital Markets LLC, will become a Minority and Womenowned Business Enterprise (MWBE) investor with LGP, marking the first time in the state’s history that there will be an MWBE firm investing equity
in a public-private construction project. “This is a historic day for Delta as we break ground on our state-of-the-art facility at LaGuardia Airport,” Bastian said. “This investment underscores our commitment to LaGuardia, to New York and to providing our customers and employees here and across the state with a world-class experience at one of our most important hubs.” Delta is investing $3.4 billion

Traveling To Europe? Get A Measles Vaccine “Long Islanders traveling to Europe should take steps to protect themselves against measles,” said Nassau University Medical Center President /CEO Dr. Victor Politi, who cited a recent report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which advises travelers to protect themselves before traveling to Europe. Since last year, the CDC has issued travel health notices specifically for the following European countries: France, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Romania. The CDC also advises that Americans who haven’t been vaccinated or exposed to measles, should get vaccinated before international travel. “Most measles cases in the United States are contracted from abroad and brought back,” said Politi. “Our goal is to not only protect travelers from contracted infectious disease, but also
protect the people back home once those travelers return.” Measles spreads when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The CDC calls measles “the most contagious of all diseases,” and estimates that nine out of 10 susceptible persons in close contact to someone who is infected will develop measles. Nassau University Medical Center offers a comprehensive personalized Travel Medicine Service to protect travelers going abroad for both business and pleasure. The service provides expert consultations and vaccinations for measles and other infectious diseases based on the part of the world where the traveler intends to be heading. “The Infectious Disease experts in the travel medicine service at NUMC utilize the most up-to-date travel disease databases to administer required and
recommended vaccinations, provide an International Certificate of Vaccination, and provide necessary prescriptions for preventive medications,” said Politi. The travel medicine service serves both individuals and travel groups. A thorough
medical history assessment, combined with an itinerary analysis, is done to determine the recommended and required vaccinations along with other preventive measures based on destination and length of stay. —Submitted by NUMC

LAGUARDIA from page 45A to construct the eastern half of the new LaGuardia-the first new airport in the United States in more than 20 years. The western half, as well as the roadways, are already under construction following a groundbreaking in June 2016. The first new gates are scheduled to open next year and the new airport is on track to be fully completed by 2021. The Port Authority is committing $600 million to leverage Delta’s $3.4 billion investment to rebuild its terminal and gate facilities at LaGuardia Airport. The Port Authority’s commitment includes $200 million towards the new Delta facilities, including the construction of new concourses and ramps; $185 million for a new electrical substation to support the power requirements of the new building, plus an expansion of the East Garage and temporary parking during construction; and $215 million for new roadway and additional supporting infrastructure that is typically the responsibility of the Port Authority in new terminal developments. Delta’s investment in the new
facility is the airline’s largest investment in its history and is one of the largest private investments in a public asset in New York State. This project builds on Delta’s past investments in New York’s airports, including more than $2 billion at John F. Kennedy Airport and LaGuardia airport over the past decade.

INTERNATIONAL WORD FIND T wns and Cities To
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It is said that earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. This is problematic for those who don’t believe in heaven, yet sorrows aplenty heal over time even on this earthly realm. There will be much of that this week for believers and nonbelievers. In fact, many wounds, emotional and physical, will not even scar.
Solution: 31 Letters
© 2017 Australian Word Games Dist. by Creators Syndicate Inc.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are people who you just don’t like and probably never will yet still must get along with. Make it your mission to find the agreeable attributes in such people, as there will be many, and discovering them will be a far more interesting use of your energy than resisting people and complaining about them. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Everyone has a backstory. It’s easy to read into things when you in fact have a deep and sophisticated knowledge of all that goes into even the simplest of communications. The complexities will be a little bit dangerous this week. Tend to the basics and the niceties, because there will be a lot of value there for you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The responsibility you’ve taken on will be emphasized. As has any person who’s taken on something bigger than a day can carry, you’ve had your moments of doubt and regret. It’s natural, normal and to be expected. Only a fool wouldn’t worry a little about what you’ve gotten yourself into. You’ll do it and be better for it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People feel love in different ways. Also, they interpret the gestures of love differently. Some like gifts, others words, and then there are those who feel best cared for when they are touched. This week provides the chance to learn the love language and style of another and communicate most effectively as a result. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Relationships are complicated. That’s the good news and the bad news wrapped up in one. If they were easy, you’d get bored. Things don’t have to be sorted out all at once this week, though. Consistent, small, gentle efforts over time will have a positive impact on the love in your life. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What if your wish came true without your having to ask for it, work for it or let anyone even know what it was? Well, that would take all the fun out of it! Wishes are best shared. You’ll be surprised by who can help you. Let others benefit from witnessing your granted wish, or facilitating it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You don’t like to be pushed along. You like to be the driver, the engine, the one who picks the pizza toppings. This is very easily accomplished on the solo journey, but the group excursion is an impossible one to navigate without compromise. You’ll manage to lead and retain popularity. Amazing. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). They’ll ask what you’ve been up to -- your chance to network, further a cause or share a bit of news that puts you in a nice light. This is when you’ll present the version of the story that’s most likely to elicit the response you’re going for, so don’t leave it to chance. Figure out what you’re going to say beforehand. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This week you will be a problem-solver, fixer and granter of wishes. The basic flow of the week goes like this: You’ll face things, deal with things, face things, and deal with things. The happy resolution of one situation will give you hope and resources for the next situation. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Interesting people will cross your path this week, but you’ll only find out how interesting by asking open-ended questions. When people throw up a wall of resistance to you, it’s because they fear what will happen if you get closer. You can break through resistance by building more trust.
THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS
You’re a social master this year, and the work of art that is your network will reflect your skill. You’ll take pleasure in bringing people together and also in meeting people who will inspire you to take your work to new levels. You’re extremely agreeable to whatever goes down in the name of kindness, family, art, discipline and philanthropy. There’s an important move in January, and a family blessing will follow. You’ll participate in the playful song of February. March begins a whimsical adventure. COPYRIGHT 2017 CREATORS.COM

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ve a kinship with the ones who have been through something, because so have you. The brokenhearted are rich in two things -- pain and light. The pain fades eventually but the light will grow aspects of character that will remain throughout. This week you’ll do something remarkable with the outgrowth of heartbreak.
