JSCOTCHIE@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

Summer is zipping by, but there’s still plenty of time for young people in the New Hyde Park area to find summer jobs that allow them to make new friends and most important, some money that will come in handy when college tuition time approaches. The Sewanhaka Central High School District wants to assist such students in both junior and senior high schools. Students seeking jobs need proof of birth, their parents’

MCDONALD HOUSE from page 1 of seriously ill children. “We were so grateful for the delicious meal prepared by Genser Dubow Genser & Cona for the families here at the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island,” said Matthew Campo, president, Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. “All of our residents were so in need of a home-cooked meal to help alleviate the stress of being at the hospital all day, and we are so appreciative of the firm’s generosity in answering this meaningful call.” GDGC prepared 30 pounds of ground beef and turkey along with vegetables, taco shells and salad. The dinner also included cheese,

will be available. In all, students obtain working permits through a certificate issued by the school district. “To get a job, they need the paperwork,” said Lori LoRusso, who will be at the district offices on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Students can look for a job anywhere they want, depending on their age. There is a work certificate for students ages 14 and 15, and another one for students ages 16 and 17. “The certificate protects students and protects employees,” LoRusso said. “It makes the student legally able to get salsa and an assortment of desserts. GDGC supplied all ingredients at a cost of about $300. “Everyone at GDGC loves doing good deeds in our community and we like to participate as a team,” said Jennifer Cona, managing partner, GDGC. “We like to roll up our sleeves and see the impact we are making. At the Ronald McDonald House, we got a real sense of the families in need and felt like we were making a difference.” Deirdre Savino from Centerport, appreciated the opportunity to volunteer and help the families who are going through such a difficult time with their children. “It really puts things in perspective,” said Savino, who has two children ages

a job. The student has their parents’ permission and the physical mandates that they are healthy enough to work.” Students will fill out an application and bring it home for their parents to sign. If a student has had a physical in the past 12 months, then a new physical is not necessary. But they also need proof of that physical. In 2009, Village of East Hills resident Ellen Pober Rittberg published a fine primer on the always-mystifying art of parenting, 35 Things Your Teen Won’t Tell You, So I Will. The purpose of the book was to offer insights on the challenge of being a parent to children

www.newhydeparkillustrated.com during the rebellious teenage years, including advice on instilling responsibility and discipline to teenagers to help foster a positive parent-child relationship. One of the key elements Rittberg stressed was having teenagers hold down a part-time job, especially a summer job. The benefits are many: Teenagers learn the importance of punching the clock, learning how to take orders, learning how to save money and they also learn how to get along and even become friends with co-workers. The Sewanhaka School District is here to help the process along.

Herricks High School Commencement Ceremony

Herricks High School’s 57th Annual Commencement Ceremony honored the Class of 2016, their many past accomplishments and new beginnings ahead. The skies were bright on the evening of June 23 as the graduates experienced the moment they had awaited and worked toward for many years. Led by members of the administration, board of education and high school faculty, the seniors made their way onto their school’s field as the band performed “Pomp and Circumstance.” Students Stephen Chacko and Rachel Mathew led their fellow graduates and guests in

reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, which they followed with an outstanding vocal presentation of the Star-Spangled Banner. Principal Dr. Samuel Thompson welcomed all in attendance at this significant event, and in continuation of a special tradition, a number of seniors shared greetings in a range of languages representative of the diversity and unity that come together in Herricks. Board of Education President Nancy Feinstein addressed the graduating seniors—her son, Zachary Sarf, among them. “If there is ever a time to dare to make a difference, to embark on something, it is now,” Feinstein said. “You owe it to yourself to make your days count. With an idea, determination and the right tools, you can do great things.” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Fino Celano reflected on the seniors’ many highlights and shared words of inspiration. “Always remain true to your convictions and the values you’ve come to embrace,” he said. He then read a quote by Teddy Roosevelt, “Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing,” which he followed with advice. “As you move forward, continue

to explore the world, searching for who you are and what your life’s passion may be,” Celano said. “Don’t be afraid to go out of your comfort zone; stay confident, be brave and reach high.”

Herricks High School PTSA co-presidents Nanette Marchelos and Brenda Tannenbaum presented farewell remarks to the graduates, followed by the salutatory address provided by Ranzhuonan Chen and the student government address led by Ashwin Viswanathan. “It is clear to see that the teachers made more than just an academic impact on us,” Chen said. Valedictorian Matthew Cohen noted that “Our success is shared,” and thanked family members and friends for their support. “It is here that I learned the value of working hard,” he said of his experience in Herricks. “With an insatiable appetite for success, anything is possible.” Each year, a faculty member is selected to provide comments to the graduates. Seniors Sandhya Ganesan, Simone Khalifa, Daniel Levine and Fatima Mossolem introduced English

teacher Stephanie Nelson as this year’s speaker. “Without you, Herricks wouldn’t be the place it’s been these past four years,” Nelson told the seniors. As she reflected on memories, old and recent, involving the students, her speech was infused with examples of literary characters and the life lessons they left. “We can’t wait to see what you’ll do, because it will most definitely be great.” The Senior Chamber Choir Singers performed two musical numbers, which were followed by Dr. Thompson’s presentation of the Class of 2016. As a new member of the school administration this year, he shared his observation that these students possess a willingness to accept change. “You welcomed me with open arms and invited me to dance,” he said. “The Class of 2016 has kept our school in step this entire year, and younger classes followed your rhythm.” As the highlight of the ceremony, diplomas were presented by Board of Education members and each graduate received applause and cheers from guests. Before the evening commenced, Thompson led members of the Class of 2016 in turning their tassels and marking their new designation as graduates. Caps flew upward as the results of diligence, effort, teamwork and determination were celebrated, with new ventures awaiting. —Submitted by the Herricks School District

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

euphemistically called “live cable restraints,” are touted by special interest groups as being a gentle alternative to the traditionally indiscriminate snare, but that is not the case.

Urgent Letter To Parents 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 Nassau County 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. Each time after the fact, I wondered, tioning system needs routine “Why did I let that upset me?” Truthfully, most maintenance as well?

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 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

COMMUNITY CALENDAR Thursday, July 21 Sci-Fi Film Viewing From 6:15 to 8:30 p.m., the Parkville Library will host another film, a classic sci-fi from 1960 that was made into a phenomenally successful and long-running television series, whose name has not been released by the library. The Parkville Branch is located at 10 Campbell St. The viewing is open to all ages. No registration required.

Friday, July 22 Skin Cancer Awareness Program On Friday, July 22, from 2 to 4:30 p.m., the offices of Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel will host a “Skintelligence” program at Clinton G. Martin Pool in New Hyde Park. Designed to raise awareness about skin cancer, the program is the product of a partnership between the assemblywoman and the Colette Coyne Melanoma Awareness

Campaign (CCMAC). “As more people head outside to enjoy the summer weather, it’s important that they know how dangerous the sun’s rays can be to their skin and how to best protect themselves from developing skin cancer,” Schimel said. “The Colette Coyne Melanoma Awareness Campaign has once again generously agreed to partner with us to help spread the word about this summer danger.” According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, accounting for roughly half of all cases diagnosed in the United States. A pale complexion, family history of skin cancer, severe sunburns, or exposure to carcinogens can increase a person’s risk for developing skin cancer, but virtually everyone is at risk. “In 1998, our daughter was diagnosed at 29 and passed five and a half months later,” said Colette Coyne, co-founder and executive director at CCMAC. “Statistics indicated at that time that one in 75 would be diagnosed in their lifetime. Today the American Cancer Society tells us one in 50 will experience this disease, which if not caught early is deadly.” The pool is at 1601 Marcus Ave. Call 516-869-6311.

It’s Always Sunday For These Guys BY JENNIFER FAUCI

JFAUCI@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

Sunday mornings are reserved for flag football. The Long Island Flag Football League (LIFFL) sees teams from all across Long Island suit up, don colored flags around their waist and play the game of football, all for the glory of being named Long Island champions. KDB Nation, a team comprised of members from Seaford, Wantagh, Levittown and other local towns, is always game ready. “It’s a great league. It’s people from everywhere around New York, coming together playing football every Sunday. Can’t get better than that,” said John Puccio of Wantagh,

who also serves as the team’s coach. “I love my team. We’ve been doing this for the past six years and it gets better and better every single season, especially when we’re winning.” Established in 1982, the LIFFL was created when student and part-time Macy’s employee George Higgins, recruited other nearby store employees to create football teams and have some good old fashioned fun. Thirty-four years later, teams still compete recreationally on Sundays, including KDB Nation, which plays in a five-man team division. As for the team’s name, the coach came up with it. “KDB Nation is based off of former NFL player Chad [Ochocinco] Johnson, who came up with the term. ‘Kiss the baby’ means it’s over,” said Joe Fauci of Seaford, who plays wide receiver. “We’re the best,” he added of his team. The weekend of June 26, saw KDB Nation face two teams: GOMD and The Black Sox. KDB Nation defeated both teams to win their third division title, which was refereed by Ralph Fornoles. “I used to play just like them, I was the outside receiver and I was tired of giving my money away, so I ended up befriending one of the refs that was doing my game,” said Fornoles of Hicksville. “I quit playing and started reffing full-time about five years ago. As a ref, I’m friendly but I’m firm, that’s my style.” “I’ve been playing for six years on KDB. We won our division three years in a row,” said Kluender from Seaford, who plays receiver and cornerback. “It’s great, the refs are great, everything is pretty consistent and fair.” Quarterback Mike DiClemente of

Kiss Da Baby are current Division Champions. Pictured from left: Nick Kluender, Nikitas Koroneos, Anthony DiClemente, John Puccio, John Medford, Joe Fauci and Michael DiClemente. Wantagh has also been on the team for years, and said he wouldn’t have it any other way. “We played a great game today and now we’re onto the Long Island Championship,” he said, reflecting the team’s win for the Nassau County championship. “I wouldn’t want to play with anyone else.” On July 10, KDB Nation won their first ever Long Island Championship title. It was down to the last two seconds and player Nikitas Koroneos’ touchdown won the game. For more on the Long Island Flag Football League, visit www.liffl.com.
