The Mark Of A Long Island Summer BY NICOLE LOCKWOOD

Among Long Island’s many sports bars and live music venues, Mulcahy’s Pub and Concert Hall of Wantagh sets itself apart from the rest by combining the two. Conveniently located across from the Wantagh train station, the venue hosts a range of events to suit people of varying interests. Since its inception, the pub has transformed into a common place for young partygoers, sports fanatics and music lovers alike. “It’s a local place so we see our regulars often,” said Timothy Murray,

director of promotions for Mulcahy’s. “We’ve gone through generations. First it was the parents, now we’re seeing their kids.” Previously in place of Mulcahy’s, there had been a traditional Irish pub for almost two decades. In 1983, John Murray Jr., Timothy Murray’s father, purchased the space and has since bought the neighboring businesses, which has allowed the bar to double, and eventually, triple in size. Currently, the space consists of a main room with a large bar in the center and an adjacent stage. To the right of the stage is a dance floor and another bar with a VIP section,

‘Be Water Wise!’ Art Contest Winners Announced BY TRIBUNE STAFF

New York American Water recently presented awards to local elementary school students who finished in first-, second- and third-place in its annual Be Water Wise! art contest. The annual art contest allows fifth-grade students in New York American Water’s service territory to creatively express the importance of conserving water, the most precious natural resource. The winners included Olivia Harris of East Lake Elementary School in Massapequa Park and Tara Cooleen and Mia Frattura of Gardiners Avenue Elementary School in Levittown. “We would like to congratulate all the students who participated in this year’s art contest for their outstanding entries. Each work of art not only highlighted the significance Mia Frattura was the second-place of water conwinner of the annual ‘Be Water servation, but Wise!’ art contest. also showcased

Kitay studied music as a child and became a talented trumpet player where as an adult, he played in the Westbury Fire Department marching band. He spent most of his 41 year career as a laboratory technician at what is currently St. Joseph’s Hospital in Bethpage. Kitay was also known as a huge animal lover and was rarely seen without a dog or cat at his side. In his spare time, he loved to read and assemble model planes and ships. Kitay was diagnosed with a grade 4 brain tumor five years ago. Although

Harris was awarded the first-place honor in recognition of her artwork highlighting water conservation. In addition, she received a $100 American Express gift card. Cooleen received the second-place honor for her drawing of an owl, reminding all to be ‘water wise.’ She received a $50 American Express gift card. Frattura was awarded the third-place honor for her artwork detailing advice to conserve water. She received a $25 American Express gift card. The remaining participants of the contest received a certificate and a Be Water Wise! reusable water bottle. New York American Water’s annual art contest is intended to inspire students to learn more about their local water supply and the influence they have to impact it, today, and in the future.

Third-place winner Mia Frattura (left) and secondplace winner Tara Cooleen (right) of Gardiners Avenue Elementary School in Levittown pose with their award-winning New York American Water ‘Be Water Wise!’ contest entries. President Brian Bruce visited the school to recognize the winners and present them with certificates and prizes. The annual art contest is held to educate young students about water conservation.

the tumor was removed, due to allergic reactions with the chemotherapy drug, treatment had to cease and the aggressive tumor returned a year after Kitay’s initial diagnosis. Unfortunately, this time the tumor was in an inoperable part of the brain. He passed away a month later; just three days shy of his 67th birthday. Kitay’s family and friends came together as Cal’s Crusaders for the inaugural Long Island Brain Tumor Walk two years ago. For years, the National Brain Tumor Society has hosted events such as walks, runs, and rides to raise

awareness of disease, to raise money for better treatments, and to connect the brain tumor community. In 2014, Long Island hosted its own walk for the first time, which was a total success. This year, the Long Island Brain Tumor Walk will be held Sept. 17 at Jones Beach. The National Brain Tumor Society is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to the brain tumor community in the United States and is rated as a fourstar charity on the Charity Navigator website. About 688,000 people in the U.S. are living with a brain tumor. Although 550,000 are benign, 138,000

are malignant and more than 69,000 others will be diagnosed this year. This is why the National Brain Tumor Society is fiercely committed to finding better treatments, and ultimately a cure, for people living with a brain tumor today and anyone who will be diagnosed tomorrow. This means effecting change in the system at all levels.

Mike DelGuidice and Big Shot, takes the stage. “Big Shot attracts people of all ages, ranging anywhere from 23 to 50 and even older,” said Murray. Besides simply holding events at the bar, Mulcahy’s has started to host all-inclusive bus trips to concerts. Though the concert tickets must be bought separately, the packages do include transportation, food and beer and the chance to be a part of a pre-concert tailgate. Upcoming trips include Zac Brown Band at Citi Field and Kenny Chesney at Citi Field. What many people don’t know about Mulcahy’s is that it has a good

reputation for its catering services. In the past, the venue has accommodated several large parties, fundraisers

The Mulcahy’s stage has seen more than just cover bands, hosting a variety of well-known talent including performances by Cheap Trick, Brett Michaels, Weezer, Joan Jett, Ted Nugent, Third Eye Blind, Dropkick Murphys, Smashmouth and Gavin DeGraw. Locals can look forward to many performances by artists on tour over the summer. Through July and August, scheduled performances include artist G. Love and country star Rodney Atkins. “You can catch acts you wouldn’t see in most towns,” said Murray. “It’s big enough that it has that New York City feel but it’s right in your backyard.” In an effort to attract a younger crowd more regularly, Mulcahy’s has begun hosting Friday Night ’90s Night, featuring top hits from the decade and offering reasonably priced drink specials. With $10 admission, attendees have access to half-priced Bud Lights and mixed drinks, as well as $4 fireball shots. Despite the growing success of ’90s Night, the venue still tends to see its greatest volume of customers on the nights when Billy Joel tribute band,

and benefits. One in particular is the annual fundraiser for the John Theissen Children’s Foundation, an organization that aims to assist underprivileged and sick children and their families. The money raised each year goes toward therapeutic and recreational equipment for hospitals and childcare facilities, medical expenses that cannot be met, toys for needy children during the holiday season and more. “We can do private parties of all sizes with different pricing options,” said Murray. “We’ll take care of everything from start to end.” With a bar that has evolved so significantly since its humble beginnings, it is not unlikely that the future holds even more growth. Murray expressed his wish to someday possibly open a second location on Long Island. He also hopes to expand the bus trip programs to different concerts, primarily within the summer months. There’s a god chance that Mulcahy’s will continue to be a unique Long Island gem bringing satisfaction to a diverse range of customers. For more information about Mulcahy’s, visit or call 516-783-7500.

ITHS Graduates Ready For College BY JENNIFER FAUCI

Another class of seniors have graduated from Island Trees High School. On the evening of June 24, seniors took to the football field as they listened to words of advice from peers, teachers and faculty about graduating from high school and moving onto college. The class valedictorian and salutatorian offered words of wisdom and Superintendent Charles Murphy congratulated the students on a job

well done. Seniors were handed their diplomas, told they met the requirements for graduation and moved their tassels from right to left as they were deemed high school graduates at the commencement ceremony. The remainder of the evening was enjoyed by family, friends and fellow Bulldogs, with one motto in mind: to never forget where they came from and that Island Trees would always be there to welcome them home.

EDITORIAL Please Don’t Catch ‘Em All Murder. Robbery. Trespassing. Pedophiles. Spying. Infidelity. Identity theft. The wildly successful Pokémon franchise has been around for more 20 years, but in less than two weeks these are all things that have been associated with the latest location-based virtual-reality game, Pokémon GO.

Businesses, museums, parks and virtually every place wanting to boost foot traffic are hopping on the bandwagon, advertising specials, incentives and discounts specifically for Pokémon hunters. I’ve even seen a university already advertising use of the game as an incentive to get potential students to register for summer courses on their campus. My cousin, who lives in Missouri, relayed what appeared to be a

zombie apocalypse in his downtown area yesterday. He watched dozens of people holding their cellphones up to their face and carelessly wandering through the neighborhood. Which led me to think...I don’t want Poke-hunters wandering into my backyard. This has already become a problem, with reports of widespread trespassing and of people putting themselves into dangerous situations to capture one of these virtual Pokémon monsters. I don’t know if this is true, but I read that the Army is developing a plan to use the application to teach soldiers how to track and navigate. Seriously? I cannot relate. That, to me as an old-school veteran, is millennial-thinking and a ridiculous skill in a soldier’s war training toolbox. I’ve heard some parents and some experts cite exercise as the reason for playing the game. It’s not just for kids. One friend told she logged five miles on her pedometer while tracking Pokémon. And another friend told me, “I don’t co-sign with letting video games babysit my kid, but he is off the

Some socially responsible groups are using it to their advantage, pitching... “Hey, while you’re out there walking around, take a bag with you and pick up some garbage” and other creative ways to get practical things accomplished, getting transients to pull double-duty. Niantic, the game developer, has also confirmed that it has access to the gamer’s Google account through the app usage including emails, personal information, etc., but that it

does not plan to actually use any of it. If you believe that, I’d like to further my case for natural selection. —Christy Hinko

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Stop Gun Violence We have had far too many moments of silence since Sandy Hook. Our children and our families deserve real action and change to stop the epidemic of gun violence in our country. We must demand this action from our elected officials, and we must take action in our own communities. More and more of our neighbors are uniting to bring the change we need. The phones in Congress are ringing off the hook, rallies are growing in numbers, and press events are being held in capitals across the country. The movement is growing, and we must keep growing it. Gun violence prevention is not a partisan issue. Gun violence impacts us all. When we live in a country where we must fear sending our

children to school or the movies, we can no longer hide behind the political status quo. Orlando marked the deadliest mass shooting our nation has seen. Since this tragedy, we have seen the nation come together in powerful ways, with members of both parties stepping up to support commonsense gun violence prevention legislation.

Surely, we can all agree that the most dangerous people amongst us, including terrorists, should not have access to firearms. There is reason to have hope that we can prevent gun violence before it happens. We can do this through sensible gun safety laws and programs in our schools and communities that help us identify the signs and signals, and intervene before a shooting happens. There are simple actions you can take to keep this hope alive and bring the change we need. Call on your state’s congressional leaders to support gun violence prevention legislation to keep guns out of dangerous hands. Specifically, call the Capitol Hill switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for your senators or representative. Attend the hundreds of local rallies, marches and community and press events taking place around the country

and in your backyard. Spread the word, through letters like this one, word of mouth and social media, about the need for commonsense gun reform. Finally, learn about Sandy Hook Promise’s free violence prevention programs, which can be implemented in our schools and communities. More information can be found at www. With your help, we can make history. Congress is listening, and is closer than ever to passing meaningful legislation that can help prevent gun violence before it happens. Every effort – no matter how seemingly small—makes a difference and is part of the cumulative movement of Sandy Hook Promise and other concerned citizens across the country who want to see an end to gun violence. —Laurie K. Gibbons

Cirque du Soleil Soars With Paramour BY BETSY ABRAHAM

©2016 California Closet Company, Inc. All rights reserved. Franchises independently owned and operated.

The circus has come to Broadway. Cirque du Soleil—known for its touring shows that combine circus arts and street performance—debut Paramour, its first Broadway show back in April, bringing high-caliber theatrics and aerobatics to the Lyric Theatre. Paramour follows the story of Indigo (Ruby Lewis), a scarlet-haired singer who is discovered by AJ Golden (Jeremy Kushnier), a powerful movie director looking for his next star. With her earnest, doe-eyed composer, Joey (Ryan Vona) in tow, the pair head off to Hollywood as Golden promises Indigo fame and fortune while Joey tries to write the perfect love song. A love triangle predictably develops, which may be an overdone plotline but lends itself beautifully to scenes like “The Dream” and “Indigo’s Decision,” where Cirque performers capture the complicated emotions of jealousy and love through acrobatics. What the show lacks in storyline, it makes up fully in jaw-dropping theatrics. There is no lack of amusements with Paramour, as the show packs in flips, acrobatics, trapeze and juggling routines that will leave the audience breathless. The world-renowned Atherton brothers—aerial strap artists who dangle dozens of feet in the air holding onto nothing more than long straps—are one of the show’s best acts, as are acrobats Martin Charrat, Myriam Deraiche and Samuel William Charlton who dangle and flip upside down from a trapeze with complete control. Brilliant choreography and strong vocals shine throughout and the show marries well the mixture of Broadway theatrics with circus stunts. While the acrobatics take center stage, performances by Lewis, who makes a memorable debut, and the rest of the cast, help the whole show come together well. This is a show that audience members won’t be able to look away from. Visit to find out more.

Power Pop Primer

Residing at a stylistic crossroads that’s found them influencing legions of bands in the worlds of pop, hard rock, new wave, heavy metal and punk, Cheap Trick has kept the flame burning bright for American rock and roll for the past four plus decades. This year not only found the foursome of Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander, Tom Petersson and Bun E. Carlos rightfully and finally getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but the the three members minus Carlos (Nielsen’s son plays drums in Carlos’ stead) released Bang, Zoom, Crazy... Hello, the band’s first studio record in five years and one that has many calling it their best. The following are some other notable parts of the band’s canon you should check out. Cheap Trick (Epic) [1977] - A power pop masterpiece, the combination of killer guitar riffs and stacked harmonies initially went overlooked by American audiences despite the band’s ability to clothe bizarre topics

like suicide (“Oh, Candy”), mass murder (“The Ballad of TV Violence”) and pedophiles (“Daddy Should Have Stayed in High School”) in killer arrangements. In Color (Epic) [1977] More pop manna can be found on Cheap Trick’s sophomore bow including the Beach Boys-inspired “Southern Girls,” the manic album opener “Hello There” and the frenetic studio version of “I Want You to Want Me.” Heaven Tonight (Epic) [1978] - Despite having a slightly slicker production sheen, this collection of songs contains plenty of classics including a sneering song about suicide (“Auf Wiedersehen”), the evils of drugs (the psychedelic title cut) and a killer Move cover (“California Man”). Cheap Trick at Budokan (Epic) [1978] - The band’s breakthrough album

captured a rabid Japanese fanbase’s ardor and carryied it back to Cheap Trick’s home country thanks to stellar live readings of “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender” and a hit cover of Fats Domino’s “Ain’t That a Shame.” Dream Police (Epic) [1979] - Fresh off of Budokan’s success, Cheap Trick’s fourth studio album was their most successful commercial outing thanks to the bombastic and ubercatchy title cut, stomping “Gonna Raise Hell” and the yearning “Need Your Love.” Next Position Please (Epic) [1983] - This Todd Rundgren-produced outing is a return to pure pop with a dash of new wave thanks to the harmony-soaked Zander gem “I Can’t Take It,” an earnest reading of The Motors’

“Dancing the Night Away” and an equally poppy take on Rundgren’s “Heaven’s Falling.” Cheap Trick ‘97 (Red Ant Records) [1997] - After a string of lackluster efforts through most of the 1980s and 1990s, this collection found Cheap Trick getting back to writing gems like the bittersweet “Say Goodbye,” poignant “It All Comes Back to You” and chiming “Hard to Tell.” The Latest (Cheap Trick Unlimited) [2009] Opening with the dreampop “Sleep Forever,” Cheap Trick deals out more power pop manna including the jagged “California Girl,” the thrashing “Sick Man of Europe” and a breezy take on Slade’s “When the Lights Are Out.”

Don’t think of them as traffic cones. But as part of a $500 million improvement plan. We know our crews make getting around a hassle now and then. But all that work is a sign of our investment creating the most reliable electric system possible right here on Long Island. So not only will we respond to downed power lines faster, we’ll be able to prevent many outages before they occur. The cones will soon be gone—the improvements will be here for years to come.

Thanks to the life-saving team at St. Joseph Hospital Anthony Pancella III eagerly anticipated traveling to Florida for his daughter’s wedding. As he was having dinner with his family one Saturday evening, he felt a sharp pain in the middle of his chest and tingling in his jaw. Luckily, Mr. Pancella went to St. Joseph Hospital where a new state-of-the-art Cardiac CT scanner, the most advanced non-invasive imaging tool in cardiology, revealed three life-threatening calcifications. The following morning at St. Francis, stents were inserted. He was discharged shortly after and was cleared to fly to Florida in time for the wedding.

Clean Pass: Save Time And Go Green BY LEIGH ANDERSON

With Clean Pass, her daily rides from Melville to East Williston and back have been reduced by about 25 minutes each way, which has not only decreased her stress, but has also saved her money on gas and allowed her to sleep later. Of the approximately 80,000 vehicles that qualify for the program, about 30,000 have Clean Pass stickers, and that number is continuing to increase, said NYSDOT Spokesperson Carol Breen. For this reason, concerns have risen about whether or not it will cause traffic in the HOV lane, but Breen assures that the program is undergoing further study in order to “ensure that the HOV lane is operating as intended, while still promoting the use of fuel-efficient vehicles.” Thus far, she added, the program has been successful, and will continue to be modified and improved according

to New York State’s and its drivers’ circumstances. Bear in mind that commercial vehicles are still not permitted in HOV lanes, no matter their fuel-efficiency, and that eligible cars must have the stickers to participate, as stated by NYSDOT. But since obtaining the stickers is so easy, both Beberman

and Breen share the view that there aren’t any disadvantages to using the program. Visit clean-pass to see if your car qualifies for a Clean Pass. To apply, visit www. and search “Request Clean Pass Stickers” or call 518-486-9786.

Long Island Expressway commuters with energy-efficient vehicles are receiving several perks for helping the earth, as they save time, money and gas, and no longer have to experience the hassle of being stuck in traffic. New York’s Clean Pass Program, which was initiated in 2006, is a plan of action intended to foster the usage of more eco-friendly vehicles in order to reduce negative impacts on the environment. The program allows drivers with eligible vehicles to drive in the Long Island Expressway’s HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) lanes without any passengers; the lanes previously permitted buses, motorcycles, and vehicles with two or more occupants only during rush hours—6 to 10 a.m. and 3 to 8 p.m. on weekdays. Though the lanes are open to other vehicles outside of peak times, being able to use it during these heavy-traffic hours gives hybrid car drivers the advantage of a faster, less-stressful commute. To use the Clean Pass Program, vehicle owners—whose cars must receive an average of 45 miles per gallon or better and meet certain emissions standards—can apply through the State Department of Motor Vehicles and will receive four stickers upon approval, according to the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT). The stickers are free of charge; applicants simply must call or apply online. Audra Beberman, a Prius-lessee and Clean Pass user from Suffolk County, said the program significantly decreased the time of her commute to and from work. “I kind of expected it to be quicker, but I didn’t realize how much time I would save. [Prior to using Clean Pass] I would sit in traffic for almost an hour, for what should have been a 20-minute commute,” she said.

Five Tips For First Time

RV-ers Make A List


It was a beautiful day as we drove north on the 101 freeway towards Santa Barbara. The rugged sandy bluffs rose high along the California coast while the sunshine sparkled across the waters of the Pacific Ocean. Thing 1 and Thing 2, then 8 and 5, were trying to sit patiently in the back seat as we drove towards our campground. This was our first outing in our new-to-us, folding camping trailer. To say my heart was happy would be an understatement. I was giddy with excitement. I couldn’t wait to start making fun, family camping memories. Brent and I already had so many from when we were kids, and we wanted to give the same thing to our boys. Not only that, we were ready to relax for the weekend after a long week of work. We were ready to kick up our heels, sit by the fire, and maybe go on a few hikes in the Los Padres National Forest. An hour later we arrived at our campsite, and the boys jumped out of the van. They were busy checking out the campsite when I noticed Thing 2 wasn’t wearing shoes. “Put on your shoes, honey. There might be something sharp.” “I don’t have them,” he replied, playing in the dirt. What? No shoes? Of course, he has shoes. What sort of parent forgets shoes when they go camping? I started searching the van but no luck. In our excitement to hit the road for our first camping experience, we had let him run out the door happy but barefoot. Ooops. Determined not to let this ruin our weekend, we headed up to the camp store. There we bought a pair of flip-flops that he could wear to protect his feet. We may not be going on any long hikes over the weekend, but they would be perfect to wear to the swimming hole on the Santa Ynez River. Wondering if there are things to do (besides remember your child’s shoes.) to make your first time out in your new RV go more smoothly? Read on.

Making a list is probably your most important step. Make copies and give them to all your readers in the family so they can help pack up. Divide your lists into categories: kitchen, meals, bathroom, outdoor activities (bikes, balls, firewood, etc.), indoor activites (games, movies, etc.), pets, family member A, B, C, etc., and don’t forget to include yourself. Start packing a few days ahead of time to avoid the last minute rush. Cross things off as you pack them and just before you pull out of your driveway, take a quick glance at your list to make sure you have everything.

Practice Parking or Driving If you are worried about backing up or driving the RV around, take it out for some practice without the family. It’s a lot easier to practice without kids playing (or arguing) in the back seat. Choose a Saturday or Sunday morning when the roads are less crowded, and drive around a bit. Find a large parking lot with plenty of empty space and back it up a few times. You’ll be surprised at how much easier it gets with a little practice. It won’t be long until you feel like a pro.

Research Test Run Most RVs are so easy to set up you could do it in your sleep, but it doesn’t hurt to do a little test run. Set up your RV in your driveway before you head out. In fact, you may want to do this a few times if you are feeling nervous. Better to figure out how to work the jacks before getting to a campsite after a long drive when you (and everyone else) may be tired. If your RV has slides, always do a slide check when setting or packing up to make sure nothing gets smashed in the slide. Trust us on this one.

see RV TIPS on page 6B

A little research ahead of time goes a long way. We are all for spontaneity, but for your first trip in your RV I suggest you have reservations. Double-check that the campground has the amenities you want. If you want electricity, water and sewer, be sure to ask for a full hookup site. You can even ask for a pullthrough site if you are not quite ready for a back-in site. While you are on the Internet, do a quick search for things to do in the area and take a few notes (I take screenshots on my phone and save them to my camera roll). This way if you get to your destination and suddenly realize you don’t have cell phone reception, you’ll still have an idea of what’s in the area. Also don’t forget to double-check your route on the GPS before pulling out of the driveway.

Cool Breeze: Keep Your Air Conditioning Serviced

RV TIPS from page 4B

Don’t Forget to Pack Your “Chill Pill”

There is a lot to be said for “Stay Calm and Carry On.” Even with all the preparation, it’s likely that something won’t go as planned on your first RV trip. (Remember we forgot our son’s shoes.) It’s okay. Little mishaps are all a part of the adventure. So here’s a little secret: I’m not the most laid-back person in the world. It’s true. But over the years, with a little practice, I’ve gotten better at handling mishaps and disagreements. There was a time when Brent BY JODI DEVERE and I would have driven around the campground cussing (read arguing) about what site to pick. What we’ve learned is that it doesn’t really matter. Neither Most motorists know that their do most of those little mishaps like forgetting the vehicles need regular preventive toothpaste or setting up the RV a little uneven. maintenance like changing the oil Every time I’ve gotten upset about something and filters, rotating the tires and not going the way I planned, I learned that it refilling the washer fluid. But did would have worked out without my unnecesyou know that your air condisary stress. Each time after the fact, I wondered, tioning system needs routine “Why did I let that upset me?” Truthfully, most maintenance as well? Taking care things that go “wrong” are really minor, and of your air conditioning system there is almost always a painless solution. Over can extend its life and prevent time, I’ve become much more chill about a lot costly repair bills. Anthony Sorrentino of Levittown, Anthony Ambrosio of Levittown. things. Flat tire?

But ANTON MEDIA GROUP over time, this lubricant is used up, and without it, the parts will eventually seize up and fail. The air conditioner will continue to pump out cool air even without the lubricant, so you won’t know the system is sick until it actually dies. So good car care includes regularly checking the refrigerant and lubricant in your car air conditioning system and replacing it if needed.

Check your owner’s manual for the auto maker’s recommendation. Here’s a good piece of auto advice for motorists that will extend the life of their air conditioning systems: You should run your air conditioner in the winter every once in a while. This circulates the refrigerant, which lubricates the seals. That way, they won’t dry out during cold weather. Your air conditioning system doesn’t just cool the air in your car; it dries ANTON’S NEW it out as well. So if you have trouble with a foggy windshield, flip on your air MONTHLY AUTO GUIDE conditioning on the defrost setting. You may be surprised at how quickly it All 18 Anton Newspapers! takes care of the problem. only Of course, some vehicles can’t run the air conditioner and defroster at the same time; you should check your owner’s manual or with the automobile manufacturer if you are uncertain whether this feature works in your car or not. So, after learning about preventive maintenance for your A/C, you might now be wondering if your air conditioner is in trouble. Two early warning signs of a failing air conditioner are: • The air just isn’t getting as cold as it used to. • There’s a strange noise when the air conditioner turns on. If you notice either of these symptoms in your car, you should bring it to your service provider as soon as possible. Just some good auto advice to keep you cool and keep you on the road.

Holiday Mathis Holiday Mathis Mathis HOROSCOPES ByByByHoliday ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll feel the frustrations of others. As much as you would like to make the situation better, you don’t want to interfere with a learning process. If you can prevent the suffering of another, step in. But if this is about shielding another from mere discomfort, think twice: A little discomfort can bring out the best in a person.

INTERNATIONAL WORD FIND All Around the Garden State Solution: 13 Letters

© 2016 Australian Word Games Dist. by Creators Syndicate Inc.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). This week you’ll get a rather mysterious nudge in a direction you hadn’t considered. As unexpected as this is, it will feel so right. Your ultimate success will be a function of your desire coinciding perfectly with the thing that others need. You’ll give a lift to those around you, mentally, physically and spiritually. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re a social creature and purposeful, too, and yet your involvement in the big causes can be tricky this week. You’ll resist the group mind and be afraid to blend in too far; you don’t want to become a statistic or serve without any personal benefit. Flex that independent spirit and see where it leads you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will answer all requests in due order. The timing is truly in your hands, and you should go at the pace that makes you feel the most comfortable and free. Do not spoil your people by being too accommodating or they will grow to take you for granted, not even realizing the efforts they regularly require of you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). More often than not, ruin isn’t caused by destructive intent. The more usual occurrence is that ruin is a function of neglect -- an indifference to the natural, slow decay of time. Combat the apathy. Maturity, vigilance and a proactive stance will assist you in creating a future that is the envy of all around you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Tastes can be erratic. Judgement can be flawed. People misunderstand each other’s efforts constantly. These matters should be tucked away with a shrug and a categorization: “That’s life”; “That’s work”; “That’s love”; or “That’s art.” An easygoing way with rejection will, by week’s end, attract crazy success! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Relaxed confidence coupled with a deep sense of purpose is the winning combination this week. You may not realize this, but you’re carrying someone else’s dream. Your achievements will go a long way toward inspiring another and propelling a legacy into the future. What you do matters ... a lot! SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Contrary to a certain self-help book title, it turns out that the “small stuff” maybe does warrant a bit of sweat after all. Maybe it’s the only sized stuff that does this week! The attention to details that would usually go unacknowledged will make a profound improvement in several of your life’s outcomes. Focus. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Oh, to have limitless options! Such a condition is dreamy when you’re assembling sundaes or trying to find the perfect shoes to complete an outfit. But when it comes to important life choices, having less than three options will keep you strong and decisive instead of diffused and overwhelmed. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Go on and update your calendar, your rituals and your wardrobe, if you feel so moved. There’s a lot you should leave alone, though! For instance, the “dated” version of your values is working out just fine for now. Stick with it. Keep believing the others can and should live up to your expectations and they will. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t expect to be constantly moved, motivated or entertained by life. You know that most of the time it’s up to you to name your purpose and find reasons to keep the fascination alive. What a delightful surprise it is this week when the forces of life single you out and fully absorb you with a new calling. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your unique and uncommon perspective will help you contribute something important. Mostly, your view will be broad. Your interest in the color, shape, meaning and thrust of the situation may have you overlooking details, filling in the blanks, writing your own rules. Hopefully, the group will go along. They’d be wise to!


This year brings wondrous luck that holds and holds. The next eight weeks bring brilliant, innovative solutions to the problems that have made your personal life less than optimum. Your friends will make an enormous difference in your ability to execute plans and achieve goals. Seek the company of those who do what they do for the sheer grace and verve of the dance. September and November bring financial opportunity. Stay lean and mean those months and reap the rewards in March. COPYRIGHT 2016 CREATORS.COM

How’s Your Perfect Summer? A few of our cherished readers will not need read past this opening sentence because you are having a perfect summer. For the rest, let me assure you of my ongoing support during the weeks ahead before school starts. It is possible that you perfectly packed all the things you needed for the beach into your car and forgot nothing. You mentally pat yourself on the back as you pack the kids in the car and head out. This is going to be the perfect beach day. Except for the aforementioned children who are at each other in the backseat the moment you reached Wantagh Parkway. Not to mention the youngest one’s meltdown at the beach. “Why do I put myself through this?” you ask your inner heart. Perhaps your children hate you

right now, but remember that this is a passing thing: they’ll love you again in about three hours. Maybe it’s because you’re insisting on “a little cooperation around here.” What a mean parent you’ve turned out to be. Or maybe it’s because they’re bored and that, naturally, is your fault, even though you’ve offered about 10 suggestions of what they can do with themselves. “Go play in traffic” might not really be a viable option. Or there’s the summer earache. Or the vomiting. Or the rash. Or the broken wrist. Illnesses know no boundaries, even when you’ve got summertime plans. And these are worse when you’re expected to be the doctor, the nurse, the waiter or waitress, the cleaner, the ambulance driver—and all seemingly without the help of your partner. You feel all alone. And heaven forbid that you get sick. No sympathy coming your way. Maybe you are a grandparent reading this. You love your grandchildren and can still name all of them and can remember their birthdays. But you are feeling hurt right now because either they are dismissive of you or they are rude. You don’t want them to be selfish, but they show you


this side of them that deeply disturbs you. Is this how they are going to turn out in later life? Is it a parent’s fate to merely endure these little agonies? One thing I do when I feel distressed is to ask the question, “What is one change I can make either in my actions or in my responses to others?” I usually can see something right away. And quite unbelievably, one change changes my distress. The cause of the distress might not go away, but I’m in a different place right then. For me, prayer works that way. I ask for a bit of divine guidance to see what I can change and almost immediately I see something new. And when I act on what I see, usually by making a small change, I’m better than OK. So I offer this as a simple suggestion for those having a less

Father Ralph Sommer than perfect summer. Let me close with an invitation. On Thursday, July 21, we’ve invited noted psychologist Dr. Ray Shelton to offer a workshop called “Effective Family Communication: Building Connections, Breaking Barriers” from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in the Parish Center at Saint Bernard’s. It’s free and open to all. It’ll be air conditioned and you’ll get to be away from the kids for 90 minutes. So call some folks to come with you, make it a mom or dad’s night out, or a couple’s night with friends. Unless, you’re having the perfect summer.

Summons and Complaint You are in danger of losing your home. If you fail to respond to the summons and complaint in this foreclosure action, you may lose your home. Please read the summons and complaint carefully. You should immediately contact an attorney or your local legal aid office to obtain advice on how to protect yourself. Sources of Information and Assistance The State encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure. In addition to seeking assistance from an attorney or legal aid office, there are government agencies, and non-profit organizations that you may contact for information about possible options, including trying to work with your lender during this process. To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by the New York State Department of Financial Services at l-800-342-3736 or visit the Department’s website at Foreclosure rescue scams Be careful of people who approach you with offers to “save” your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner’s distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services. 8-3; 7-27-20-13-20164T-#155717-LEV
