Summer ‘Steam’ At Middle School BY RACHEL HIRSCHHEIMER

rhirSchheimer@antonmediagroup.com

Mineola Middle School is currently hosting Camp Invention, a national summer enrichment day camp program sponsored by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Throughout the course of Camp Invention, students in grades 1 through 6 learn different aspects of science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) using hands-on tactics. Each section of the program is broken up into two modules. The first week’s module (which took place last week), was called Epic, where students took classes called I Can Invent: Maker Studio, a section in which students utilize reverse engineering by taking apart projects and inventions to create a new product; CrickoBot, where students learn how to create and manipulate solar-powered crickets; The Lab: Where Pigs Can Fly, where students

Fury Automotive Revs Up In Village BY BETSY ABRAHAM

babraham@antonmediagroup.com

Exotic car drivers will now have one more option as to where to bring their vehicles, as the village board approved the application of Xin Zhang to open Fury Automotive Inc., in Mineola. Zhang plans to open his automotive repair and body work shop at 15 Windsor Court, the former site of Global Telecom Supply. The shop will also include a paint/spray booth, subject to approval of the Nassau County Fire Marshall and subsequent permit from the village building

department. Zhang, who has previous experience working in shops in Queens, said he wanted to open his own business in Mineola because of the opportunity. “I love Mineola. The environment and people are nice. It’s a nice village,” Zhang said, noting it was centrally located between main roads. The Queens-resident said most of his customers come from Nassau County, so he’s hoping to buy a home in Mineola in the next few years. There are several other automotive repair shops in the surrounding area, but Zhang said Fury will

specialize in exotic and high-end cars. “We’ll do modifications to high-end cars. If you buy a used Ferrari, for example, and don’t want to take it to a dealer, we do that,” Zhang said. “We do show cars too, upgrading a particular part of a car to make it more efficient.” There will be three to four employees at the shop and all repair work will be done in the garage. He said he doesn’t plan to have vehicles outside for repair work. Fury Automotive Inc., will be open Monday through Saturday, from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Zhang plans to open in September.

Turning Garbage Into Gratitude BY BETSY ABRAHAM

babraham@antonmediagroup.com

What’s the answer to the world’s problems? If you ask Rabbi Anchelle Perl, of the Chabad of Mineola, the answer is simple: gratitude. “If there was more gratitude for each other, it would create more harmony,” Perl said. “If a person has gratitude, he has greater respect for others and it makes the person better, creating human dignity and appreciation. A lot of the problems we have today could be bridged with simple gratitude.” Perl is taking steps towards harmony this summer, with his “salute to sanitation” initiative. Perl, along with

members from the Chabad of Mineola, are visiting sanitation departments all over Nassau County, bringing workers water bottles and expressing thanks for all their hard work. “These people go about their work every day to keep the community clean and healthy. We wanted to reach out to them to show them our appreciation,” said Perl. Perl plans to stop at various other sanitation departments over the summer and expects to meet with 500 workers. The first stop was last Thursday, July 14, as Perl went to the Town of Oyster Bay’s Department of Public Works in Syosset to meet workers and hand out water bottles. The experience was exhilarating and moving, said Perl.

to meet with them and shake their hands. It was a fun moment and they appreciated it.”

The Mineola Fire Department hosts a number of school children during the year at its headquarters. St. Martin de Porres first-graders have been coming to Mineola for a number of years to learn about fire safety and see how they can learn about the importance of fire prevention. The students recently visited the department once again, and after a short video, were given a tour of the firehouse and its fire trucks and equipment. The highlight of the tour was when the students got the chance to get on the fire trucks, and try on real firemen’s gear. After the tour, all the students received a plastic fire helmet and coloring book to take back to school with them. The first-graders provided the Mineola firemen with a poster of thanks in giving their time to teach them about fire prevention.

Rhoda says that Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump have caught the imagination of the youth, while Hillary Clinton

Many Democrats are thinking that Elizabeth Warren would be a better candidate than Hillary.

reality shows with little to no advanced notice of what she would be doing. She received warm receptions from the studios and hosts overseas, who sometimes made up roles and parts, especially for her. She ate blowfish on a morning show in Japan, was kicked in the face while milking a sheep for a Turkish reality show and recited a poem in ancient Arabic for a United Arab Emirates program. Cavalli said she is normally pretty bold and daring, but it took an extra dose of “Kodak courage” to do some of the crazy things a show asked her to.

The Village of Mineola recently opened a new parking lot at the corner of 2nd Street and Roslyn Road. The parking field is the first new municipal parking Mineola has added in almost 10 years. The lot was built on property that was deeded at no cost to the Village of Mineola by New York state as part of the Department of Transportation’s Roslyn Road Long Island Rail Road Grade Crossing Elimination Project. The village successfully negotiated the land transfer as part of the project in order to provide additional parking for area residents and business customers. While there is still ongoing work yet to be completed, such as the installation of additional lighting, the basic work needed to convert the lot from a vacant parcel including drainage, paving and curbing was completed ahead of schedule making the lot usable to motorists. “The trustees and I felt that if the lot is usable, it was more important to open the lot to use than to wait for it to be 100 percent complete,” said Mayor Scott Strauss. “Any additional work can be completed while the lot is being used.” Strauss added that this lot offers much needed parking relief in that area of the village. Currently there are no restrictions on non-commercial parking in the new lot, pending the completion of a first-ever village-wide parking study, which will be concluded

In the last two years, Karla Cavalli has found herself walking with elephants in Africa, climbing a coconut tree in the Philippines and herding sheep in New Zealand. The Mineola native’s global adventures are hitting small screens everywhere, through her new gig as host of Travel Channel’s Planet Primetime. Planet Primetime seeks to explore cultures through the shows people watch and are entertained by. On the show, Cavalli explores hands-on the

weird, funny, sweet and wild shows that are popular in countries across the globe. As an active participant, Cavalli gets to see firsthand what makes people around the word laugh, cry and freak out. “A lot of hosts travel and learn about cultures as they’re sitting at a table eating a specific dish, I looked at it through TV,” Cavalli said. “It teaches people about other cultures and traditions around the world through the art form of TV.” As host, Cavalli got the privilege of starring in popular international TV shows, as well as appearing on game shows and

make binary coded bracelets out of initials and learn about marine biology while exploring a squid; and a class called Epic Park where children play eco-friendly games using resources from the park to find gems and minerals in a blowup marsh and examine them. This week, students are designing a small, motor-powered vehicle to race, inventing bionic gadgets and igniting a spirit of creativity and entrepreneurship through personalized video challenges presented by National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees. The camp allows students to not only be educated in different, hands-on ways, but to have fun at the same time. Dana McDonough is serving as director of the program for the third year and believes that Camp Invention is important for a student’s education. The atmosphere of the camp is extremely relaxed, allowing the children to enjoy themselves and learn simultaneously. “The students are learning by actually doing things,” McDonough said. “They are talking to one another and coming up with these ideas within their small groups. It is a lot of fun.” Meagan Fabiitti was the instructor in charge of the CrickoBot class. She challenged students to work together

Students search for “gems” in a pool posing as a marsh. and brainstorm ideas. “A main focus is their group work, collaborating with one another, exploring ideas and being inventive throughout the activity,” Fabiitti said, adding that students learned to respect each other because they had to listen to one another while coming up with designs. Students learn something new each day of Camp Invention. Christina Castello, instructor of Where Pigs Can Fly, believes that “when we are teaching science to younger kids, the best way to do it is with hands-on materials so they are all engaged. The students are all interested and they love it.” The Mineola camp drew 89 students

from all over Nassau County. One camper, Rachael, said she loves coming everyday and learning new things. When asked about her favorite module, she said “They are all pretty great.” The best part about coming to camp everyday, Rachael said, was “being with my friends.” To learn more about Camp Invention and find out about future sites, visit www. campinvention.org.

Literacy Class Changes Lives BY MEGAN SMEAD

mineola@antonmediagroup.com

The Mineola Memorial Library provides a quiet space for Kathie Novak, a volunteer with Literacy Nassau, to hold small group lessons for adults who are looking to improve their English skills. “My goal for my ESL [English as a Second Language] students is to improve their quality of life, by helping them to speak, read and write English,” Novak said. “Becoming literate opens doors and gives them confidence to seek better jobs, as well as giving them the skills to help their children with their homework.” Novak and her three students, Gladys, Alcina and Giada, meet twice a week for two-hour sessions where they work on day-to-day speaking, reading, and writing skills. They learn idioms and expressions, practice skills like making doctor’s appointments and understanding medication instructions, and discuss American government and civics. Novak encourages her students to read newspapers and magazines to practice what they’ve learned, and also assigns them homework, the latest being a biographical essay. Alcina moved from her home in Portugal to the United States when she was 26 years old, and the only words she knew in English were “yes” “no” and “one.” In her biographical essay, she describes the decision she and her husband made to move to America.

“We left my lovely country, my family, my friends and the job I love to do, [to] give a better life for our daughters,” she said. Alcina and her family live in Mineola, and she wants to use the skills she has learned to return to work in accounting, for which she completed her degree in Portugal. “The class has helped so much,” Alcina said. “I’m so grateful to the library for helping people like us. Ms. Novak is a nice teacher to volunteer.” Gladys is from Honduras and lives in Garden City Park with her family. She spoke no English when she arrived in America. “It was difficult for me, then I learned a little bit,” Gladys said. “It is hard with kids, but I am so thankful that I’m learning a lot. I was confused with past, present and future [tenses], but I feel good speaking now.” In her biographical essay homework, Gladys describes leaving her home and moving to America. She and her husband shared apartments with friends to save money, and eventually bought their own house. Both she and her husband have started their own businesses, his in landscaping and hers in coffee. Gladys said her son was surprised, reading her essay and told her, “You do so much for me. You’re the best mom.” Giada is from Italy, living and working as an au pair in Garden City. She knew “just a little bit of English” before coming to the United States and says that Literacy Nassau has “helped so much.”

Nassau Literacy volunteer teacher Kathy Novak (second from right) with her students Gladys, Giada and Alcina. She misses her family back in Italy, especially her mom, who she says is “always encouraging me to follow my dreams.” Despite missing her family, she loves to travel, and will likely stay in America for another year. Giada has loved her experience here so far, saying, “The thing that I love more of United States is the people’s freedom, because I think that a person must be free to live her life in the exact way she wants. Here, it’s possible.” It was a pleasure to see Novak and her students interact, and it is a testament to their hard work that four women, all speaking different native languages, can talk, read, and laugh together at the library.

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 than 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 all places 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 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 cell phones up to their faces 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 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 me that she logged five miles on her pedometer while tracking Pokémon. And another friend told me, “I don’t cosign with letting video games babysit my kid, but he is off the couch.” Um, OK. Yes, I understand both sides of that. I’m

still leery. 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 doesn’t plan to actually use any of it.

rain barrels must be made at other nurseries or stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot. Finally, there are two other habits that really help in water conservation. First,it is very important to follow the water schedule of your town. Many use odd/even days and set times, such as before 10 a.m. in the morning. This avoids wasting water as the day grows hotter, and the water evaporates. The second is the washing of cars. Taking our cars to the professional services prevents excess water loss and the chemicals from driveways leeching into the ground and flowing into sewers. Ultimately, reducing water waste is more than lowering water bills; it is also the best way to maintain a healthier and fuller water system for all of us. —Elaine Peters

Urgent Letter To Parents

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Reducing Water Waste The easiest way to lower the bills we must pay to live on Long Island is avoiding excess water use. Inside our homes we may have leaks, but they can be quickly mended. For a toilet leak, replacing a worn out flapper can stop its leaking. A tightened connection on a leaky shower head will do the same and taking shorter showers will also help. Having a low flush toilet or installing other water-efficient appliances really helps cut non-essential water loss. Outside we can learn how to water properly. Whether we water our lawns by hand or by an automatic sprinkler system, what is really called for is how much watering is enough. By leaving the grass three inches high, the roots can develop deeper root systems that store water. Therefore, watering for

a long period of time twice a week is sufficient. With an automatic sprinkler system, the installation of sensors helps to determine if enough rainfall has occurred. This will halt the next irrigation cycle. For backyard garden watering, checking the hose to be used is mandatory.If there are leaks, this can often be remedied by tightening or buying a new washer for it, not a new hose. Catching rain water is also a great way to save on water bills. This can be done by setting up a rain barrel under the gutter’s leader near your garden area. Rain water can then be used to grow vegetables and plants. Residents of the Town of North Hempstead are lucky to be able to attend seminars held at the Clark Botanical Gardens and leave with a rain barrel or compost tumbler for only $50. Otherwise, the purchase of

This year I lost my friend to drugs. He was a normal kid like you and me. Loved sports, family and friends. He didn’t have a problem and was not prone to addiction, he was just looking to have a good time. This letter is coming from someone who learned the hard way that we are not invincible. It has come to my attention that current students are beginning to employ synthesized drugs like Xanax and Molly and combining it with excessive alcohol, just for a good time. I urgently implore you to talk to your children so we as a community can put an end to these extremely avoidable tragedies. —Jack Bolton

THEATER REVIEW

Cirque du Soleil Soars With Paramour BY BETSY ABRAHAM

BaBraHam@antonmediagroup.com

©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 www.cirquedusoleil.com/paramour to find out more.

L A N O I T A S N U S

The Coltrane Home in Dix Hills, in conjunction with the Town of Huntington Summer Arts Festival and the Huntington Arts Council, will stage an all-day, affordable family-friendly festival of live music and music workshops in beautiful Heckscher State Park, Huntington Village on Saturday, July 23, from noon to 10:30 p.m. (rain date Sunday, July 24). “Building Community through Music” is this year’s theme, as the event celebrates the legacies of music giants John and Alice Coltrane, who lived in Dix Hills.

World-class live music performances, including jazz, funk, blues, hip-hop, gospel, electronic music and jamband will be featured, with top local music talent on display.

MUSIC

DAVE GIL DE RUBIO

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.

“NOTHING WAS GOING TO KEEP ME FROM MY DAUGHTER’S WEDDING, NOTHING DID.” - ANTHONY PANCELLA III

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 specialsections@antonmediagroup.com

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 www.dot.ny.gov/programs/ clean-pass to see if your car qualifies for a Clean Pass. To apply, visit www. nysdmv.custhelp.com 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

BY JENN AND BRENT NIMS specialsections@antonmediagroup.com

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 disspecialsections@antonmediagroup.com 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.

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 WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS

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

Mineola Bowler Makes Nationals

Swim-A-Thon Raises Funds For Winthrop Nearly 175 swimmers made a splash at Winthrop-University Hospital’s 15th annual Swim-a-Thon at Hofstra University’s Swim Center. Participants raised funds for the Hospital’s Child Life Program, a program through which certified Child Life Specialists utilize play and education to improve children’s understanding of medical procedures, teach relaxation techniques to help young patients cope with illness or surgery and provide emotional support for the entire family. The 2016 event raised more than $53,000, bringing this event’s total contributions to the Child Life Program since its inception in 2002 to more than $400,000.

Participants enjoyed massage therapy by licensed massage therapist Denise Cooke, RN; live music by Central Beat rock band; crafts provided by Cathy Grossfeld of All about Kids; yoga by Donna Dragani, prizes and more. Saf-T-Swim, Winthrop’s affiliate in swim training, also joined participants poolside. “We are grateful for the community’s support in making the event such a success, and every lap goes a long way,” said Ron Marino, DO, MPH, associate chairman and director of general pediatrics at Winthrop, and organizer of the annual fundraiser. —Submitted by WinthropUniversity Hospital

Mineola resident Phil Macchietto is only 11 years old but he’s already making a name for himself in the local bowling world. Long Island held the Pepsi bowling qualifier at AMF Plainview Lanes in March, where Macchietto placed in second, earning him an invitation to bowl in the state scholarship championship in Rome, NY. Twenty bowlers competed for the top scholarship and a chance to go to the Nationals in July. After six games, the top four bowled in a step ladder format. Macchietto placed fourth and defeated the third-place bowler (172-164) then defeated second place (213-169), which put him in position to bowl first place in the title match. Macchietto came out on top, winning (224-185). Averaging 198 after nine games, Macchietto became the NYS Pepsi U-12 champion earning a $1,000 scholarship and an invite to Nationals. Macchietto’s future plans are to continue bowling in his league at AMF

Sheridan Lanes and one day join the Mineola High School Mustang bowling team and follow in the footsteps of his brother, Tony.
