Miles For Murphy

Billy, Ron, Eva and Freddy Rodriguez run to the finish line.

Local resident runs 50 miles for Navy SEAL who died in combat BY BETSY ABRAHAM

BABRAHAM@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

Freddy Rodriguez likes a challenge. He’s done obstacle course races and endurance events, and celebrated his 25th birthday with a 14-mile 25-pound weighted march from his home in Carle Place to Long Beach. In 2012, when he found out about a four-mile run to honor Lt. Michael Murphy, a Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor recipient who died in combat in Afghanistan, Rodriguez knew he wanted to get involved. But Rodriguez said the four-mile run in Ronkonkoma seemed more like an end point. After a little research, Rodriguez found out that Murphy spent a lot of

time at FDNY Ladder 53 Ladder 43. Rodriguez decided to run from the firehouse in Spanish Harlem to the end of the four-mile run in Ronkonkoma, a 50-mile journey spanning New York City, Nassau and Suffolk counties. For even the most skilled runners, 50 miles in one shot is an audacious goal. But Rodriguez said it was nothing compared to what Murphy went through. “Compared to what he and his men went through with training and defending our way of life, this pales in comparison,” said Rodriguez. Murphy, a Patchogue-native, was the leader of a four-man SEAL reconnaissance unit

Healing Wounds With Communication New website promotes police-community relations

Police violence seems to fill the news lately, and with the latest incidents in Baton Rouge, Minnesota and Dallas, it seems as if the tensions between police officers and community members are reaching a tipping point. Rather than sit back and watch tensions continue to escalate, Westbury resident Arthur Dobrin decided to do something to help promote positive police-community relations. With the help of the Ethical

Humanist Society of Long Island (of which he is leader emeritus), Dobrin created Communities and Police Talk, a website that seeks to create an outlet for residents to voice their concerns with the police department, while allowing the police the opportunity to educate the community on pertinent information. “There needs to be a way in which police can really hear what the community is saying and to improve its procedures, and which police are able to let the community know what their end of the responsibility needs to be,”

Dobrin said. “Empathy is needed on both sides and communication is the way for that to happen.” The idea for the website was sparked last year, after Dobrin attended the Civilian Police Academy run by the Nassau County Police Department. After graduating from the course, Dobrin said he wanted to bring all the information he had learned about police procedure to the

Local Honored For 50-Year Career

County Executive Ed Mangano; honoree Mary Jane Griffin; and Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter.

Westbury resident Mary Jane Griffin was recently awarded a citation from Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter, for her 50-year career as a civilian employee of the Nassau County Police Department. “I would like to congratulate Mary Jane Griffin for celebrating 50 years of service as an employee of the Nassau County Police Department,” said Mangano. “The work that the civilian employees of the Nassau County Police Department do is crucial to helping to run the department. With her standards of integrity, respect,

excellence, accountability, hard work and dedication, Mary Jane Griffin has proven to be an invaluable member of our Nassau County family.” Griffin began her career in 1965 at Police Headquarters—which at the time was the only location that female civil servants in the Police Department were permitted to work. In 1967 she was able to move to the 7th precinct. She worked there until 1980 when she moved to the 8th precinct, where she stayed until retiring from working full-time in 2000. In 2004, she returned as a part-time employee to the 2nd precinct, where she remains today.

Boy Scout Spruces Up Library Charles Austria, a member of Boy Scout Troop 45 of Mineola and resident of Carle Place, recently completed an Eagle Scout project at the Westbury Children’s Library. Austria, with the assistance of his troop and other volunteers, built and installed two cedar benches and two evaporation art easels, as well as a stone path through the trees to the Children’s Library. This project can be enjoyed by the community for years to come.

He was able to fund the project, by having a scrap metal, bottle and can drive, which received overwhelming support from the Carle Place, Westbury and Salisbury communities. He was able to fund his entire project thanks to the donations that he received. Austria is very happy to have had the chance to help improve the Westbury Children’s Library. He spent a lot of time there when he was younger attending their

You can have anyone who has something to say, say it, and get people on both sides to listen.” Emanuel Boussios, a certified Police Academy instructor and visiting scholar at Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies, Columbia University, is an advisor to the project and believes that the site will be an incubator for new ideas in continuing dialogue. “We want it to become a platform that will encourage conversation between police and members of the community, and use their feedback

public, while at the same time giving the community an unfiltered way to express their concerns with the police department (both local and county) in a more casual manner. “I think the police want to get their point of view out and reach into the community to do a better job, but what hasn’t been present is for the community to be able to talk to the police in a way where they don’t feel intimidated,” Dobrin said. “[The site] doesn’t require a

to improve policing for the common good,” Boussios said. Though ever-evolving, the site, which was launched at the end of June, has both informative and conversational components. There are articles on what to do if stopped by the police in your car, as well as how to handle police questioning. Site visitors can also leave questions for police and suggestions for better policing. Dobrin said all comments— which must be posted under the name of a user with an email address (which will not be published)—are

monitored and will be brought to the police department’s attention. Dobrin said the Nassau County Police Department has been very responsive and that he’s hoping to add on to the site as needs are expressed. He’s also hoping the site gets adopted in other places outside of Nassau. “I’m hoping elsewhere, people adopt it and use it for their own purposes,” Dobrin said. “It’s not copyrighted, it’s meant for people to use.” The site is also available in Spanish and Creole.

MURPHY from page 1 that secretly infiltrated the HinduKush mountains in June 2005. Ambushed by Taliban forces, Murphy climbed into the open onto high ground to make an electronic call for rescue. Though wounded, he continued to fight, allowing one member of his squad to escape, before he himself was killed. While Rodriguez had enthusiasm and drive, the physically demanding race would be quite the test. The farthest distance he had run was 13 miles at the time of the first race in 2012. “I had no idea what was going to be in store,” Rodriguez said, who did the first race with a friend, whose farthest running distance was a 10-mile workout run. “It was a lot of guesswork the first year.” With support from the FDNY and Mineola Fire Department, who escorted them from the city to the Jericho/Westbury line, and a friend who followed and escorted them the rest of the way, Rodriguez—who fractured his foot around mile 35— and his friend were able to get to the start of the four-mile race, 20 minutes before their deadline of 9 a.m. For the last four years, Rodriguez has run that same 50-mile race. The journey takes between 11 ½ and 12 ½ hours, and Rodriguez starts out Friday at 7:30 p.m. to make sure he’s in Ronkonkoma

for the start of the four-mile run. Running that distance has gotten somewhat easier over the years, as Rodriguez has learned better how to pace himself and has police escorting him the whole way through. He’s been joined by other runners in the past few years, either for a portion or the whole race, and this year he was joined by three runners—Eva Casale, Ron Hurtado and Billy Richards. While he’s getting used to the route and distance, every year presents its own challenges. This year, Rodriguez was in a car accident a month and a half before the race. “I couldn’t train as much,” said Rodriguez. “I had my moments when I was wondering if I would be able to, but I was all for it.” Over the years, he’s raised more than $1,600, with all proceeds going to the Lt. Michael Murphy Scholarship Foundation, Special Ops Warrior Fund and the Lone Survivor Foundation. Rodriguez said he has friends in the armed forces, and while he never served himself, has the utmost respect for the men and women who lay down their lives to protect the country’s freedoms. It’s that truth that propels him to run the race every year, and persevere every step of the 50-mile journey. “Every year there’s some point during the run that my knees start hurting, or it’s too humid or you get

Ron, Freddy, Billy and Eva at the finish line. those voices in your head saying you should take a break. But you have to keep saying to yourself, ‘you have to keep going,’” Rodriguez said. “You’re doing this for a very specific reason. For Michael Murphy, Danny Dietz, Jr., all those other guys [from Operation Red Wings]. I keep reciting those names. You’re not crawling on the ground yet so you can keep moving.” Rodriguez said while he’d love to see the 50-mile run become an

official race, there are a lot of logistics involved since the route crosses over three jurisdictions. He said he’d love to see it grow into a relay and have more people become involved. “I’d love to see this grow, especially to get the word out more about Michael Murphy and his men,” Rodriguez said. “I hope to spread the word of who he was more. That’s the main goal, to keep his name going.” Find out more about Michael Murphy at www.murphfoundation.org.

Digging In For National Ice Cream Month BY DAVE GIL DE RUBIO

DGILDERUBIO@ANTONMEADIAGROUP.COM

A banana split at Coyle’s

Ice cream is synonymous with summer, so it’s only natural that July would be National Ice Cream month. There are plenty of places to eat your way through on Long Island and in New York City. Here are a handful of our favorites.

Eddie’s Sweet Shop

105-29 Metropolitan Ave. Forest Hills 718-520-8514 www.facebook.com/ EddiesSweetShop Vito Citrano and his family have been calling the shots since 1968 with all ice cream being made on the premises. Fans of this tasty treat can choose from 20 different flavores that include mint chip, butter pecan and orange sherbert and the more offbeat pistachio pineapple and tutti frutti. Go-To Dessert The Broadway This Citrano favorite combines seltzer, coffee ice cream and home-made whipped cream.

Coyle’s Ice Cream

Hildebrandt’s

Krisch’s Massapequa special

75 Howells Rd., Bay Shore 631-666-2229 www.facebook.com/pages/Coyles-Ice-Cream With recipes for 300 different flavors that he’s made on site since opening up in 1985, Marty Coyle has come up with quite a number of off-beat ice cream types that include Crazy Vanilla (vanilla with food colors in it), chocolate raspberry (vanilla ice cream with chocolate and sauce with chocolate chunks and raspberry sauce layered into it) and Holy Cannoli (cannoli cream, vanilla ice cream, cannoli shells and chocolate chips). The Bay Shore ice cream king also has a smaller, second location on Main Street in Islip. Go-To Dessert 1963 Style Banana Split Get on board with a pint’s worth of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream piled with pineapples, strawberries, black cherries, chocolate sauce and nuts all topped with whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry.

84 Hillside Ave., Williston Park 516-741-0608 www.hildebrandtsrestaurant.com A Williston Park mainstay, this dinette has a full lunch and dinner menu with desserts being the crown jewel here. All 15 ice cream flavors are homemade on site and include chocolate sherbert, maple A Hildebrandt walnut, cappucino chip Cookie Dough and banana with an Sundae assortment of toppings available including fruit, marshamallow, wet and dry nuts. Go-To Dessert Cookie Dough Sundae One scoop of ice cream with a cookie dough shell covered by whipped cream, hot fudge and a cherry.

Nana’s Ice Cream And Coffee Shop

225A Post Ave., Westbury 516-808-6793 Comfy couches welcome patrons while the walls are festooned with the work of local artists. While this is the one shop that uses an ice cream distributor (Hershey’s), proprieters Jason and Tiffany Blair make their own waffle cones, whipped cream, shaved ice,

bubble tea and sorbet on the premises. Go-To Dessert Salted Caramel Bubble Tea Salted caramel truffle ice cream and coconut milk with tapioca on the bottom. Topped with whipped cream, caramel drizzle and a caramel macaroni.

Krisch’s Restaurant And Ice Cream Parlour

11 Central Ave., Massapequa 516-797-3149 A Massapequa staple for close to 60 years, Krisch’s is rightfully lauded for its burgers and breakfast menu. Yet, home-made ice cream with top-of-the-line ingredients drives this culinary ship. Discerning dessert mavens can choose from an array of flavors including dark chocolate strawberry, rainbow cookie, fluffernutter and burgundy cherry. Go-To Dessert Massapequa Special This confection is made up of two scoops of ice cream, hot fudge, marshmallow, whipped cream and a cherry, an ingredient proprietor Steven McCue insists every sundae must have.

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. If you believe that, I’d like to further my case for natural selection. —Christy Hinko

Free Speech And The Judiciary Donald Trump has been ridiculed by some because of his statements that a Mexican-American federal judge was not fair to him in his Trump University case because of the judge’s ethnicity. Whether he can show that the judge was deliberately wrong on the law because of his ethnicity is dubious at best. But there is no doubt that Trump has the right to state his criticism, and then as a political candidate, have his views subjected to public opinion. While Trump’s views may be no better than those among judges in the South who upheld anti-miscegenation and other Jim Crow laws or all white juries there who acquitted murderers for their killings of innocent African Americans or civil rights workers, he nonetheless has the

Village Justice Tom Liotti

right to say what he has. Just as the ACLU fought for the right of Nazis to demonstrate in Skokie, IL, 30 years ago and for the KKK to hold a rally in lower Manhattan later attended by just three of its members, so it is that whether Trump’s polarizing views, which have brought unprecedented violence into the Presidential campaign, will carry the day for him. To be sure, the test for Trump, his

Republican Party and the American electorate, will be whether he can win the general election in light of views that many have characterized as hateful and racist. A businessman’s fight to preserve the integrity of his so-called university blends into his campaign for the Presidency because the parties to that litigation and the media have brought it there. The big question is whether the American public will elect Donald Trump despite his rhetoric. Are his substantive views on the economy or trade for example so compelling that his rhetoric in other respects should be ignored? As it is right now, Trump may ask for the judge’s discretionary recusal for which he will find that the judge himself will rule on that application and for which there is no basis in

law. If he believes that the judge has violated the Canons of Judicial Ethics he can file a complaint against him. He will once again find that that application has no merit and that for making these applications he may be subject to sanctions for frivolous conduct. If he feels that the judge has acted ultra vires, or without jurisdiction, he can sue the judge and then be subject to dismissal of those claims, costs and sanctions. But perhaps he does not care because he never settles and he is a billionaire. At some point his lawyers should care because they may be subjecting themselves to disciplinary action. At some point the American public must decide the overall merits or demerits of Trump’s views—the good, the bad and the truly ugly.

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.

Coltrane Day Is July 23

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. The festival will host workshops, master-classes, community jams and live performances for all ages and levels. 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. Local arts and food are included this year, along with many opportunities for young musicians to play with professionals. People may know about Coltrane’s transformative impact on the world of jazz, where he has achieved nearly godlike status. Many people don’t know the incredible influence John Coltrane has had on the non-jazz world. From rock to pop and R&B, world music, rap and hip-hop, Coltrane’s influence has been tremendous.

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?

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

Leopold D. Gallardo passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 3, 2016, two days after celebrating his 90th birthday.\He was preceded in death by his wife, Edna Gallardo, and leaves behind three children, nine grandchildren and two great grandsons. He emigrated to the U.S. to marry Edna in 1954 and worked for Panalpina, a cargo import/export company at JFK Airport on Long Island for many years. His ability to speak a number of languages, as well as his work ethic, enabled him to work for the company until his retirement. Leo and Edna purchased a house in Westbury in 1963 and lived there until her death in

2014. Leo remained in the house for another year before requiring the care a nursing home in West Islip provided until he passed away. He loved animals and enjoyed photography, reading and music, but he was most devoted to his family. John, his oldest son, moved to Boca Raton, FL, soon after he graduated and remains there with his wife, Cindy. Lysa, his only daughter, her husband Rick and kids, currently lives in Wisconsin and his youngest son, Robert, and his wife Katie and their children, remained on Long Island and cared for him until his death. In accordance with their wishes, there were no funerals, though the family has plans for a scattering of their ashes later this year.

The Fighter

Maggie Messina overcame the odds. Now she’s helping others do the same BY BETSY ABRAHAM

BABRAHAM@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

Maggie Messina is a woman on a mission. As the owner of Taecole Tae Kwon Do and Fitness in Albertson, she’s passionate about creating a safe haven where people can learn martial arts and instilling in children the values of self-confidence and hard work. “My mission is the betterment of children,” Messina said. “Our youth are our future. If we don’t make them feel good about themselves and that they can achieve anything and that they’re smart and bright, what kind of future are we going to have?” And for Messina, being an inspiration to youngsters has a special significance—in fact, if it wasn’t for the people who pushed her to succeed as a child she wouldn’t have ended up where she is today, she says. “I had people in my life who believed in me, who gave me an ounce of hope. That’s why I held on and pushed forward,” Messina said. “It saved my life.” Messina had far from an idyllic childhood. The sixth of 11 kids, her mom was a drug addict and Messina ended up in the foster system of a poor upstate neighborhood. Though a few people inspired her to keep pressing on, most told her she would never succeed or overcome her circumstances. Upon graduating from boarding

school in 1985, she had aged out of the foster care system so she ended up homeless for close to a year. She bounced around on friends’ couches, trying to get by, and soon found tae kwon do as a relief from her situation. “I was so depressed. I started practicing tae kwon do and the rest of my worries and the world wasn’t with me,” Messina said. “It was like a sanctuary time. That was the place I could go to no matter what was going on. I fell in love with it.” She soon fell in love with the martial art and when she wasn’t working at Sloan Kettering, she was practicing and working at Kang System (now T. Kang Taekwondo Martial Arts Center) in Brooklyn. She dreamed of opening a martial arts school and in 2001, that dream came to fruition when she opened Taecole Tae Kwon Do and Fitness in Albertson. Messina hopes to create a safe space for children to learn martial arts, the same way that she found a refuge at the Brooklyn martial arts studio. “I use myself as an example,” Messina said. “We teach kids discipline and the importance of not bullying and self confidence, and let them know they can become anything they want, as long as they’re willing to work.” Messina has created a “no judgment” zone at Taecole, where everyone is welcome. She strives to reinforce to

Messina and the Taecole black belt teen group. Most of these teens have been with Taecole since they were three years old.

Messina (with student Chris Trietsch) helped collect toys at Taecole for the less fortunate. Every Christmas, Messina spends the day distributing the toys to children. students that they can do anything they set their minds to. “I tell the kids and teens, especially, to stay focused and not fall into peer pressure,” Messina said, adding that most Taecole athletes go on to college. Messina said she hopes to motivate students who were like her—in rough situations but willing to work hard. Her studio works with kids who have money and behavior issues, and her compassion for them knows no bounds. Messina and her husband legally adopted Brandon, a 16-year-old student who had been at Taecole since he was 3, because his parents were addicted to drugs. Brandon, who was from New York City and living in the projects, was continually told he would never go to college. Because of the investment of the Messina family, as well as several others, the Mineola High School alum is now set to graduate from Marist College in May 2017, with a bachelor of arts degree in psychology and international business. The Albertson resident is also passionate about teaching youngsters about stranger danger. She volunteers her time to do presentations at schools, including at Denton and Meadow Drive in Mineola, as well as for Scout troops both on Long Island and upstate. During the interactive presentations, students not only learn what to do if approached by a stranger, but how to not put themselves in risky environments. “We teach them to be proactive about putting themselves in a dangerous situation,” Messina said. “We try

Maggie Messina

to prepare them and teach them the importance of pro-activeness.” For Messina, Taecole and her lectures aren’t just about giving kids the skills to protect themselves. It’s about providing them a nurturing environment where they can grow as people. “When I realized how many children suffer as I did, I took it very personally,” Messina said. “Children need confidence and hope. It’s the seeds we plant in their little hearts and minds that can help dictate the people they become tomorrow. For me, it’s all about the follow through, and seeing the kids through to the end. Not every child needs it, but if there’s a kid who needs more support, we’re there for them.”
