Landmark Bethpage restaurant moves BY GARY SIMEONE
The Zorn’s of Bethpage’s 80-year-old landmark building closed for the final time earlier this month, moving their operations to a new location on the property. The American restaurant, which is an iconic symbol on Long Island, will now be housed in a smaller 8,000 square foot facility adjacent to the older building. “A new store with old beginnings. That is the slogan on our updated marquee,” said Merrill Zorn, president and CEO of Zorn’s
of Bethpage. “It’s definitely a bittersweet feeling because we didn’t want to leave, but our staff is excited about the opportunity of working in the new facility.” The new facility, which is much smaller than the original 25,000 square foot building, will be located on one acre of the four acre property. Zorn said that she plans to keep all of the staff from the original store and that there will be no change in the products being offered.
“That was the whole point of moving, that I’d be able to hold onto the over sixty employees who keep this whole operation running,” said Zorn. “They mean the world to me, as do my customers, who’ve been coming to me for generations.” Zorn’s great-grandparents started the tradition with Zorn’s Farm on Long Island in the early 1900s. Her grandfather, Peter Zorn, continued the legacy by opening the first retail store in Bethpage in 1940.
It is an exciting week for golf enthusiasts at Bethpage State Park as the 101st PGA championship is in full swing. The widely publicized event, which is expected to draw over 200,000 spectators, takes place May 13th through the 19th. Elizabeth Wintenberger, director of Bethpage State Park, is helping to manage and coordinate the event. “It’s obviously a very busy time, but we’re ready and prepared,” said Wintenberger. “There has been alot of planning that has gone into this going back three years.” The planning has included the build-out and construction along the park’s Black Course, where the professional golfers will ply their trade. The construction has included new gravel access roads for maintenance vehicles and the building of seating areas along the course. Wintenberger said that there are 3,600 volunteers working in shifts during the week and over 100 groundskeepers from all over the world. Their duties include everything from marshaling the holes on the course to working inside of the merchandise and food tents helping customers. “During the practice rounds, we’re able to fine-tune and plan for a lot of things before things really pick-up midweek. Early on we can get an idea of things like traffic flow patterns and possible security issues.” Wintenberger has a lot of experience working in the New York State Park system. She’s worked for over forty years, getting her first job as a seasonal employee at Jones Beach State Park in 1978 to working as a park director at Hempstead Lake State Park in 1990. She came to Bethpage in 2011, bringing her knowledge and experience to help run one of the most popular parks in the County. “Basically I’m in charge of the overall management of the maintenance and operation facility, which includes things like maintaining the grass and the golf course,” said Wintenberger. She said that after working 41 years in the agency, that the PGA championship is one of the highlights of her career.

Hicksville middle schooler named a semifinalist in national geography bee
Hicksville Middle School student Eric Zhang is congratulated by social studies teacher Kevin Kerley for being named a semifinalist in the National Geographic Photo courtesy of the Hicksville School District GeoBee. Congratulations to Hicksville Middle School’s Eric Zhang, who was named a semifinalist in the 2019 National Geographic GeoBee competition. He was one of just 100 students to advance to the New York State GeoBee. Eric emerged as the Hicksville Middle School champion in a schoolwide GeoBee held in February. He and other participating students answered questions such as: “It takes about 90 days for a drop of water to travel the length of the Mississippi River. The Mississippi River starts in Minnesota
and flows 2,340 miles south to its outlet in which state — Louisiana or South Carolina?” (Answer: Louisiana.) After winning the schoolwide bee, Eric scored in the top 100 on the state qualifying exam, along with semifinalists from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Department of Defense Dependents Schools and U.S. territories. The New York State finals were held on March 29, and although Eric did not advance to the national competition, finishing in the top 100 shows he really knows his geography!

The force and strength of student-created wind turbines were put to the test during a fifth grade STEM lab lesson at the Bethpage Union Free School District’s Charles Campagne Elementary School. As part of a recent three-day lesson, students worked in groups to construct wind turbines using a base of wood in addition to various forms of paper and tape to generate the machine’s blades. The following day, STEM teacher Srividya Sridharan tested each group’s work by using a classroom fan at different speeds. From there, students modified their turbines to move at all
velocities. The true evaluation of strength came when a bucket of marbles was attached to each turbine’s rotator. The experiment revealed the combination of strength and movement of the turbines and whether the machines could move at the low speed of the fan with weight. Students continued to add marbles to test the durability of their projects. “The students really enjoyed this project as the lesson combined education and a sense of competition and excitement between groups,” said Mrs. Sridharan.

Levittown goes blue for Autism Awareness Month
Summit Lane Elementary School students wore Autism Awareness T-shirts during the month of April.
Summit Lane Elementary School students wore Autism Awareness T-shirts during the month of April.
Students and staff throughout the Levittown Public Schools celebrated Autism Awareness Month in April by educating others, wearing custom blue T-shirts, hosting events and raising money for organizations that support those with autism. From the elementary to high school level, students showed their support. Lee Road Elementary School students wrote what makes them unique on puzzle pieces which were displayed in the hallway. The pieces ranged in colors and shapes to represent the diversity of the people and families living with autism. At Summit Lane Elementary School, speech teacher Maryann Holzapfel and student council representatives started a T-shirt sale for World Autism Awareness Day to increase understanding and acceptance of people with autism. The proceeds from the sale, along with
throughout the month, watched video clips that promoted awareness and acceptance and sold puzzle hearts, pencils, stickers and bracelets with proceeds going towards the NSASA. Jonas E. Salk Middle School staff created Autism Awareness videos which were then shared throughout the building and teachers conducted lessons on autism. In addition, a student with autism created a T-shirt which was sold. The concept behind the shirt was that everyone has a super power. Students and staff at General Douglas MacArthur High School continued their tradition of spreading Autism Awareness by decorating the hallways, discussing what autism is and raising money for the NSASA through T-shirt sales, special activities and Autism Awareness sporting events. For the district as a whole,
a contribution from the school’s Casual Friday Fund, was donated to Nassau-Suffolk Autism Society of America. East Broadway Elementary School also supported the NassauSuffolk Autism Society of America by creating and selling T-shirts and having snack cart sales. In addition, students and staff at Abbey Lane Elementary School participated in several schoolwide activities. This included creating a special segment on the school’s Abbey Action News and staff members visiting applied behavior analysis classes to read. Students in the ABA program also sold breakfast items on a food cart to staff and held a sale during lunch periods which included items that support and recognize Autism Awareness. At the middle school level, the Wisdom Lane community wore blue
Wisdom Lane Middle School staff members spread unity with their Autism Awareness T-shirt, “We All Fit In.”
it was a month filled with not only spreading awareness but also encouraging others to be proud of their uniqueness, while reinforcing kindness and acceptance. “The Levittown School District prides itself on its motto of Success For Every Student. Autism Awareness Month is an opportunity to educate and share in the success of all students,” said Dr. Susan Farber, director of pupil services. “It is a time when general education and special education students, parents and staff, all come together for one cause and that is to promote inclusion of all students. Through the various programs and activities that are run districtwide, students are able to show off their talents, participate in unique activities, design T-shirts and raise money for such a worthy cause.” Photos courtesy of the Levittown Public Schools
The MacArthur High School girls lacrosse team participated in a special Autism Awareness game at the end of the month.

We find ourselves in the center piazza and a marvelous restaurant, Trattoria Barcaneta, for lunch. It is so peaceful and quiet and utterly charming and colorful. As we ride the bike trail, we come upon a set of Roman ruins of a colonnade behind a fence, oddly alongside a road. Then, a tower comes into view, looming above a wall of tall trees. I must investigate, and check the notes the tour operator has provided. I realize that this is Aquileia, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. This proves the highlight of the day: the massive Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta dates from 313 AD, when the Dict of Milan ended religious persecution and the Christian community could legally build a place of public worship. The first church was destroyed and over the centuries has been rebuilt four times, each time using the stones of the earlier buildings. As it stands today, the basilica is in Romanesque-Gothic style, with a 73 meter-high tower. The inside is breathtaking: the entire floor is Roman mosaic from the 4th century, only uncovered in 1909-1912. The 760 sq. meter floor is believed to be the larg-

much further to go. Grado The rest of the ride is extremely pleasant, capped with what feels like three miles over a dam, with water on both sides, to get into Grado, another gorgeous seaside beach resort, this one with yachts. We arrive in time to make it down to the beach by 7 pm (when we discover they don’t charge the 2E fee to use the beach at that hour), and get to swim in the Adriatic before going in search of a dinner place. Grado is interesting – our hotel is along
the beach and is a string of modern hotels that have you thinking a little bit of Miami Beach. Our guidebook says that Grado, known as a golden island, is the only good beach resort on the Upper Adriatic, and has an exceptionally picturesque old town and a fascinating history. Indeed, just a couple of blocks away, it’s like a completely different world: we find ourselves in Grado’s Old City, standing over an excavation of Roman ruins of a military camp (fort), a town square with a Basilica della Corte that dates from the 4th century (one of the oldest in Italy), and a delightful pedestrian walkway loaded with shops and restaurants in an old historic section.

All the restaurants are booked solid (we haven’t yet learned the trick of phoning in advance for reservations, which would be facilitated by the dining recommendations in our guidebook), but we find a small innovative place that serves tapas-style. The town is extremely picturesque and at night the promenade is lighted, there is an interesting fountain with colored lights you walk under like a tunnel, and it is simply delightful to stroll. Other attractions include the Basilica di Sant’Eufernia which dates from the 6th century and is located in Campo del Patriarchi. The bell tower was built in 1455. There is also a statue of Archangel Michael, the symbol of Grado, on the tower. Our guidebook also makes note of a boat trip to the island of Anfora, a picturesque fishing village in the heart of the lagoon. Some parts of the lagoon are designated nature preserves, harboring some 260 species of birds. Here again, we just fall under the spell of this place. It has been another utterly perfect day. Stage 4: Aquilea/Grado – Trieste (43 miles/70 km or 25 miles/40 km) + train Day 5 of our eight-day self-guided VeniceTrieste-Istria bike tour starts off magnificently: the ride from Grado begins with another glorious miles-long ride over a dam (a different one from yesterday) giving stunning views and refreshing breezes. It continues through a landscape of rocky caverns and farmland, along the seacoast, finally coming to a delightful swimming beach (this is why you should carry swimming things). This part of the ride, the first 24 miles, has been fantastic. Then we come into Monfalcone, a busy city of shipyards and cruise ships, where we get lost. And here we make a bad choice for our route to Trieste.
The regular (recommended) route would have us riding 43 miles along the coastal road (we are told this isn’t a bike trail but there may be a bike lane) taking in Duino, Sistiana, Miramare, and Barcola. Our FunActive guide Anthony (I recall too late), has described riding along cliffs that you can climb down, passing the castle of Miramare high above the Bay of Grignano, situated in the middle of a park, which is a major attraction (not to mention the castle has a Manet exhibit, which I only learn about after we arrive at our Trieste hotel). Anthony also said how the ride can be reduced to 25 miles by taking a train into Trieste. We don’t do either. Instead, we take a “variant” route from Monfalcone into the “hinterland” (the thought of “hinterland” had really excited Eric) that brings us into Slovenia (no border crossing or passport required back and forth to Italy). As it turns out, this adventure adds 17 miles to the 43 of which most of it is up and up and up, on winding roads (at one point, my “can do” attitude fails and I walk the bike up the last quarter-mile to this section’s “top” feeling defeated). There are no charming villages. No beautiful sights or vistas. Even the restaurant that is marked on the map is closed. We ride through what is supposed to be a preserve with trees on both sides, but there are no real views or scenery. Finally, we come back to the Italy border where there is a tiny rest stop (no bathroom though). I rejuvenate with an ice cream bar, sitting on an air-conditioned porch (I think I am close to heat exhaustion), and recover myself for the final trek into Trieste. Chalk this up to the “physical challenge” part of bike touring that gives you something to boast about forever more. And adventure. After all, it could have been the most fantastic off-the-beaten-track

discovery anyone had ever seen. We make the final climbs and then find ourselves, indeed, at a scenic overlook (actually somebody’s driveway) with a sensational view of Trieste. But after taking our victory-photos, we realize that now we have to bike down this narrow, busy road with its hair turns that (seemingly) goes on for miles. We feel like we are coming down a corkscrew and finally are deposited into the traffic and hubbub of a bustling major city. Trieste is like culture shock after our time in the tranquil countryside. But we see regal, if drab and aging, buildings, evidence of an important city. Somehow, Eric finds the way to our hotel, located on the fringe of the historic Old City (I clock the day at 54 miles of which I estimate 12 miles are uphill). We quickly drop our things and go out to explore while there is still light. It’s a short walk to the main square. All at once, I am transported: the architecture evokes Vienna rather than Venice majestic buildings in neoclassic style. Indeed, Trieste (as much of Slovenia just across the

It was once the Empire’s most important Mediterranean port, and interestingly, with the European Union, has again become a major gateway into Europe, rivaling Koper, Slovenia’s major port, for commerce. The city puts out an outstanding tourist map, giving background to its history and guide to important sites like the Museum of History and Art and Lapidary Gardens, the Castle Museum and Lapidarium, the Victory Lighthouse (built 1922 honoring sailors lost in World War I), the Opicina Tramway built in 1902 linking city centre with the plateau. It offers tours to Roman Trieste and literary tours. And as I discover (too late to take advantage): Jewish Trieste: Risiera di San Sabba, created inside an old rice husking factory, was the only extermination camp in Italy and declared a national monument in 1965; Via del Monte, a Jewish community with a cemetery used for 400 years, a Jewish Temple, and a See page D6

There are the immaculate people, the tidy & the organized
BY CLAIRE LYNCH
’ve noticed as I’ve gone through life that there are immaculate looking people, there are tidy people and then there are organized people. I don’t fall into the immaculate looking people category nor do I fall into the tidy people category. But when it comes to being organized, I’ve got that down to a T. I say that because when it comes to finding things, I am tops in my field. Sure over the years I have misplaced the occasional thing - my driver’s license and my birth certificate and my U.S. Passport just to name three things. But sooner or later they have reappeared and ever since all has been well in my world. When I make major purchases, however, when I buy a 40-inch TV or a new dishwasher, I take home my receipt and pop it into a certain black filing cabinet in my little home office. Thankfully I don’t drop that receipt onto my kitchen table or dining room table or leave it in my coat pocket. I am as protective as can be about my receipts. One reason that I’m so protective is because over the years I have learned ... the hard way. It’s best to be safe rather than sorry. I actually have two black filing cabinets in my home office. A small tabletop lamp stands on top of each one and when lighted, I think that they give the room a certain ambiance. Some of my siblings have kidded me about having black filing cabinets in my home but I tell them that they definitely come in handy.
“They aren’t very attractive,” my older sister, Michelle, said one time with a frown. And she almost snarled when she said it. And my younger sister, Susan, called them eclectic. “They don’t match the decor,” Susan said with a sneer. “In fact, they stick out like a pair of sore thumbs.” She wouldn’t look at me when she said that but in her own inimitable way she made her point quite clear. Crystal clear. I wondered where my sisters’ frowns, snarls and sneers were coming from since usually they are cheerful people not negative ones. I guess they really have something against filing cabinets. I shrugged off their laments and went about my business because a) I’m not trying to be Joanna Gaines with the best and latest in sheik home decorating and b) because they are very practical. My filing cabinets have served me very well and they continue to do so. This is my habit: As soon as I walk in the door I toss that new purchase receipt into the drawer of the filing cabinet and presto, it’s safe and sound only to be retrieved if I need to check a warranty date, a date of purchase or some such detail. On a rainy day when I have a few hours of spare time on my hands I go through that drawer of receipts and organize them by topic. I have “electronics,” “household goods,” “appliances,” etc. I also have another drawer that I have carefully marked “tax returns” because whenever that time of the year for taxes rolls around, and we all know when that is, I can pull out whatever I
need and voila, I’ve got the forms, the information and the answers at my fingertips. Being so organized proved to be fruitful one day recently when I was vacuuming my living room and the on/ off foot pedal broke. The 18 lb. upright machine konked out, came to a halt and that piece of metal (ok, it’s mostly plastic) drew its last breath. I was disappointed because I was only half-way through my vacuuming at that point. I pressed the pedal a few more times but nothing happened. For a few minutes I was stymied. In short, I was flummoxed. Whizzing over to my trusty filing cabinet and flipping to my “new vacuum” purchases, I discovered that it was still under warranty. “Yippee!” I shouted. Dancing around like Snoopy on his toes I was as pleased as punch because I had a feeling that having my original warranty was going to save me a lot of grief. The warranty was for three years and checking the date, I was delighted to see that the vacuum I had bought at a big box store on Long Island was two months shy of the warranty’s expiration date. Blinking my eyes, I looked again to see if what I had read was correct. It was indeed. Dashing to my landline phone, I called the company’s customer service number in the manual (yes I keep all instructional manuals, too) and in short order was connected to a very real, live person. After typing in some very pertinent information such as my name, address,
phone number, model and serial number, date of purchase, etc., the customer service person named Violet asked me to email the company my receipt. I scanned it in and emailed it back. In just a few days a different person called and saying that they had reviewed my case, he said that the company could offer me a replacement vacuum. I was as happy as could be. That saved me from having to run out to the big box store to buy another vacuum which would mean having to do some research and comparative shopping. Or from having to go online and order one there to be delivered to my house. Whether it is in person or online, shopping for vacuums isn’t my favorite pastime. All I had to do was complete a form they emailed me, peel off the sticker on the back of the upright vacuum that had the model number and the serial number, affix it to the form and mail it to where I was instructed. Once they received my latest information at their headquarters, the company would issue me a brand new upright vacuum. They would pack it and box it and send it on its way. A truck would be dispatched and within a short amount of time a new upright vacuum would be arriving on my doorstep. The day that an overnight delivery truck delivered my brand new upright vacuum to my house was a good one. I did my happy Snoopy dance once again. It had been three weeks since my old one had konked out so I needed to give See page D6

I’ve Been Working on the Railroad BY TOM MARGENAU
Q: My husband and I live in Utah. We went to file for our Social Security benefits last week. And we were shocked to learn that his claim must be processed by some railroad board. Why? The work he did for the railroad was more than 30 years ago! A: I can explain. But frankly, I can’t quite understand it. Recently, I wrote a column in which I bragged about the fact that I can give the rationale behind almost all Social Security rules and regulations. But I admitted there were several rules that I couldn’t explain. I forgot to add this one. It involves the jurisdiction of Social Security claims involving people who also worked for a railroad. Many of my readers may not be aware of this, but people who work for a railroad don’t pay into Social Security. Instead, they are covered by the Railroad Retirement System. Why that is dates back to the 1930s. Congress started working on setting up a pension system for railroaders before they got going on Social Security legislation. Once they got the ball rolling on Social Security, I guess Congress figured that people who worked for a railroad didn’t need to be covered under the new Social Security law since they already had their own pension system. But almost all railroad employees have worked at other jobs where they have paid into Social Security. And here’s the rub. The rules say that if you have just 10 or more years of railroad work, the Railroad Retirement Board has jurisdiction of not only the payment of railroad benefits, but also of any claims for Social Security benefits that you or your dependents or survivors might file. You didn’t tell me how long your husband worked for the railroad. But here is a typical example. Hal worked for a railroad for just over 12 years early in his life. However, he spent the rest of his career, about 40 years, working at jobs where he paid into Social Security. So when he files for Social Security retirement benefits, Hal is surprised, and probably a little upset, to learn that his Social Security claim must be sent to the Railroad Retirement Board for processing. And if his wife files for spousal benefits on Hal’s record, her claim is shipped to RRB for processing, too. They will end up getting whatever Social Security benefits they are due, with some augmented RRB benefits. But again, the rules say the RRB takes charge of both Social Security and railroad claims. I understand they have to set up the payment of whatever extra railroad benefits might be due. But why they have to take control of the Social Security claim is a bit of a mystery. Anyway, that’s why your husband’s claim was shipped to the RRB for pro-
cessing. And one possible downside to that development is the service you can expect. Unlike the Social Security Administration, which has something like 1,300 field offices around the country, the RRB has only 30 or so, and most of them are clustered east of the Mississippi. The good news is that they appear to have a really good website: www.rrb. gov. Q: I worked for a railroad for eight years back when I was in my early 20s. Someone told me that I must file for my Social Security benefits with the Railroad Retirement Board. This doesn’t make sense. A: You’re right. It doesn’t make sense. And that’s because it’s not true. Your railroad work didn’t meet that 10year threshold mark that requires RRB jurisdiction. In fact, you and I are in the same boat. I worked for a railroad for about five years when I was in my late teens and early 20s. And because I had fewer than 10 years of railroad work, those railroad earnings were automatically transferred to my Social Security account, and they are treated like any other earnings I might have. The same thing will happen with you. And when it comes time to file for Social Security, you will deal with the Social Security Administration, not the Railroad Retirement Board. That’s really all the railroad-related questions I have. But I’ve got some space left to answer a few general questions about Social Security. Q: I just signed up for my Social Security. I am 62. And I was told by the Social Security agent that my Medicare coverage will start two years from now. But all my friends tell me I have to wait until I am 65. Who is right? A: I wonder if you filed for Social Security disability benefits instead of retirement? Or maybe you filed for both? Because if you applied for disability benefits, the law says that Medicare coverage kicks in 24 months after your claim is approved. But if you are getting just retirement benefits, then you have to wait until age 65 before you can get Medicare. Q: I am an 86-year-old widower who still works full time. Here is something that puzzles me. I am paying Social Security taxes twice. Why in the world am I doing that? A: You didn’t fully explain what you meant by the statement, “I am paying Social Security taxes twice.” But I can take a guess. First of all, anyone who is working at a job covered by Social Security (which are almost all jobs in this country), has to have Social Security payroll taxes deducted from his or her salary. And that happens whether you are 16 years old or 86 years old.
As a completely separate issue, the Social Security benefits you get may be subject to federal income taxes. Those rules are way too complicated for me to explain in today’s column. But in a nutshell, I can tell you that if you file an individual tax return and if your net taxable income is over $25,000, you will probably pay taxes on those benefits.
So the two taxes you are talking about are entirely separate issues. One is a payroll tax on your salary, and the other is an income tax on your total income.

Are you thinking of selling your home on your own in 2019?
his year appears to be an excellent moment in time to sell your home, home owner association, condo or co-op. Taking a macro look at the current real estate market and developing your own opinion is one method that many use to determine the health of the market without any backing with facts; I call that “fake news” developed by the homeowner or whomever they are listening to, who for the most part, have no or limited experience with facts and figures or probably are not even in the business. Gathering accurate facts and statistics from experienced Realtors (like me), who are in the trenches doing this business day in and day out; as well as reading current articles, going to local and national conventions and seeing and experiencing the trends; also, who has the advantage, the seller’s or the buyer’s now and going forward. In some locations, it’s still a bit more of a seller’s market, where homes are priced at market value. Homes priced correctly below one million dollars and with taxes less than $15,000, are still selling well. You ask what is market value? It’s the price that purchasers are willing and do pay for a similar property that has sold in the last 6-12 months, as the bank appraisers use this as a fairly accurate barometer when determining fair market value. However, some banks are much more conservative than others. I will not point a finger at one specific bank, since I bank with them, but they appraised a home I was selling in New Hyde Park within the Great Neck school district; which added more value compared to other local school districts, due to the greater demand for that specific school district. The purchaser provided an agreed upon
BY PHILIP A. RAICES price of $983,000 in July of 2018 and we closed in September of 2018 at reduced price of $920,000. Are you wondering why there was such a discount on the price? Well, let me tell you what happened. I provided comparable sales of similar homes of $950,000 and $970,000 in the area within the Great Neck school district, while prices were still fairly strong. Well, the appraiser decided not to consider my Multiple Listing Service of Long Island comparable closed sales and used his own, which I totally disagreed with and to this day find unacceptable. I had what you might call a professional discussion with him (more of a heated conversation) and asked why he eliminated my comparable sales and didn’t use them; and he really gave me no logical or common sense reason; just told me to talk with the mortgage person, who wasn’t exactly ecstatic about his decision. Obviously, the appraiser works for the bank, who works for the buyer and not the seller. My seller was moving across country and had already picked out a home that he fell in love with and wanted to purchase and didn’t want to lose it. He didn’t blame me for the major discount, because he bought it through me in 1994 for $288,400! Not too shabby a profit, eh? More than triple his initial purchase price! So we did close the sale. So, depending on the bank your buyer maybe using, which you have no control over, your price may not end up being the actual sale price and it will be up to you decide if you want to make an adjustment, if need be, or not go ahead with your sale
and look for another qualified buyer. Sellers, beware of pricing your home, like “pie in the sky” it’s not a realistic approach in trying to sell your home, homeowner association, condo or co-op. I have said this before, and I will note this again, “your feelings are never going to be truly relevant to actual market value.” Looking online on Zillow, which isn’t accurate in determining pricing, where they are using algorithms or other sites and not using the number one source for accuracy, which is the multiple listing service of Long Island (http://www.mlsli.com) to price you home correctly. We have to record the actual selling price once the property is sold. Most important, we have been inside the particular property (Zillow cannot) in the beginning and noted the improvements that had been made in the last 3-5 years, kitchens, bathrooms, floors, roof, windows, heating, electric, plumbing, even additions to the living space. Lastly, with a home, even landscaping, which adds five dollars for every one dollar invested in the exterior of your property can make a difference in a selling price, if done properly! When a professional Realtor becomes responsible for marketing and merchandising your home, he or she has thirty-five things that they have to deal with. My complete color chart shows what we have to do to get a home sold. You don’t do your own dental work, do you? No, you have a dentist, right?

Readers Share Their Brilliant Ideas Plus Something More BY MARY HUNT
FREEZE MILK FOR LATER Dear Mary: I use whole milk but only occasionally in some of my special recipes. Instead of purchasing the smaller size milk container for that one recipe, I purchase the gallon-size whole milk, which is much cheaper per ounce. I freeze what I don’t need in 1-cup measurements in freezer bags. I am surprised how many times during the year this saves me from purchasing yet again a smaller size milk container for just one recipe. I am so grateful for your columns. They have helped keep me on the right track. Thank you. -- Linda
SAFE TAKE-APART Dear Mary: I am a retired soldier. During my active career, we moved often. That meant my inner DIY needed to come out often. We disassembled many things over the years, and I would like to add to your tips on taking things apart. Once the item is disassembled, always reposition the fasteners, screws or bolts and nuts back into the holes, exactly where they were. You are not putting the item back together, simply inserting the hardware into the specific slots and holes. Packing all of these items into a ziptype plastic bag sounds like a good idea, but unless you very securely tape the little bag to the back of the item you took
apart, the bag always seems to get lost some way or another. Putting the fasteners back where they were means they will always be in the right place when and where you need them! Now that we have retired, we still have some things disassembled in our shed for storage, and the fasteners are back in their spots waiting to be used in the reassembly, without hunting for them. -- Colonel T.W.

There are the immaculate people, the tidy & the organized C ontinued from page D3
the new vacuum a whirl. I couldn’t sweep my living room rug with a broom nor could I use the small cordless vacuum that is useful for cleaning little nooks and crannies and the inside of my car. Nothing would do the trick except an upright vacuum and on that score I had been temporarily out of luck. I say “temporarily” but of course it seemed like forever. One of the rules of household cleaning at my place is: When I should vacuum the rugs in my home I don’t often feel like doing it but when I do feel like vacuuming I can’t because unfortunately, that machine is out of service. Out of commission. That’s Murphy’s law at its best … So I got to thinking. Not being able to vacuum for a few weeks kind of made me wonder about what people did in the old days - before all of our modern gadgets and gizmos came on the scene. It also made me leery about having company over. I didn’t want my
guests examining my rugs and floors, didn’t want them muttering under their breaths about the bits of lint and tiny little threads on my carpets. It was bothering me enough - I didn’t want to hear it from them, too. So I held off. I didn’t like not being able to vacuum because the fact is that the little pieces of lint, the little threads on the floor and the dust bunnies were getting to me. When things like that pile up, when I don’t keep on top of household chores, it starts to irk me. As hard as it was for me to be patient, I was glad that I had been with the manufacturing company because my new vacuum looks all pretty and pristine. I look at it like I look at a new car. It looks so perfect, standing there in the corner that I get a little wistful and almost don’t want to use it. I don’t want to tamper with it. After all, the last time I pressed the on/off pedal on my vacuum a small plastic piece fell off and the whole machine konked out. It made me a little leery about getting back in the saddle as the old expression
goes. It definitely made me hesitant. I am happy to report that the new vacuum is comparable to the old one, not a cheaper version and not a refurbished one, thank heavens. It did a great job of sucking up the dust and lint and after an hour or so of vacuuming my place it was looking clean and shiny once again. But I digress. I’ve got some more paperwork to add to my black filing cabinet now. My vacuum purchase from 2016 has an addendum. The March 2019 replacement vacuum is an update to my April 2016 purchase and the paperwork kind of goes together like a hand in a glove. Now that my new vacuum has arrived and has demonstrated that it works well I can stop dreaming about getting a brand new vacuum. I can stop doing my comparative analysis. For a few weeks I thought: Which brand is better? Which one gets good customer reviews? Where can I get replacement filters? Will it need replacement belts? Which company has the best customer service ... just in case
of its quick demise? The state of my upright vacuum is one thing that is resolved and off my mind. So now, whenever I am in my little home office and walking past my two trusty black filing cabinets I think about how fortunate it was that I had my original receipt. Being efficient sure came in handy. The moral of this story is: When going out I may not be an immaculate person, may not have my makeup carefully applied and my hair perfectly coiffed. And I may not be the tidiest - because the truth is that I know a lot of people who are tidier than I - but still I try. I may not be the most immaculate person around or the tidiest one around but I am organized and now I can pat myself on the back and breathe a sigh of relief because things are getting back to normal around here.

Discovering Ancient Christian Site of Aquilea, Roman City of Grado and Trieste on Self-Guided Biketour C ontinued from page D3 tage): Jewish Trieste: Risiera di San Sabba, created inside an old rice husking factory, was the only extermination camp in Italy and declared a national monument in 1965; Via del Monte, a Jewish community with a cemetery used for 400 years, a Jewish Temple, and a Jewish Community Museum, the newer Jewish Cemetery, a synagogue which dates from 1912, and some other sites.
Unfortunately, we have arrived in early evening, and are only able to explore what we can by foot in the old city, to get a flavor of the city. Here too, Eric puts out his radar (app) and finds Osteria de Scorpon for dinner (the risotto with black ink is excellent). This area reflects its heritage as part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and goulash is a regional specialty.

Gene Kilgore: Family Ranch Vacations Embolden Children to Become Next Gen Environmentalists, Explorers SONOMA, CA – Kids, horses and wranglers are the heart and soul of family dude ranch vacations, says Gene Kilgore, a leading expert on dude ranch vacations. “Take children to a beach and ask them 10 years later to name that beach and they will have forgotten. But take them to a ranch and they’ll remember the name of the ranch and the names of their horses for the rest of their lives.” “A thread common to these ranches is the attention staff lavish on children exploring an exciting new, wild world of ranch vacations,” he adds. “Meanwhile their parents are unplugging, riding or maybe fly fishing, reading a book or musing about becoming a family who lives year-round on a ranch. They’ve never seen their children this happy. He points to ranches from the Rockies to California “where Mother Nature emboldens children to become next generation environmentalists, explorers and adventurers.”. In the Canadian Rockies, Three Bars Guest and Cattle Ranch invites ages 6 and up to ride, target practice with kid-size archery equipment, shoot clays with lightweight rifles, river raft, swim (supervised), mountain bike, fish, hunt for frogs, build forts and pan for British Columbia gold. Host Tyler Beckley notes, “The first day or so most families tend to ride together. As children feel more secure and after they’ve made friends, they’re off and running.” Evenings everyone eats together. Children under 6 can ride around the arena on horses led by wranglers and meet other animals in a petting zoo. Log cabins of up to three bedrooms accommodate 45 guests (see https://www. top50ranches.com/ranch-vacations/ three-bars-ranch). California’s Rankin Ranch has run cattle at the southern tip of the Sierra Nevada mountain range since 1863. Supervised activities for ages 4 to 11 combine hiking and swimming with ping pong, shuffleboard, archery, badminton, horseshoes and the list goes on. Ages 6 and up enjoy twice daily trail rides through areas where cattle are grazing. “Evenings youngsters feed chickens, pigs, sheep, goats, a miniature donkey and miniature horses. They get to brush the animals and collect eggs,” says Amanda Rankin Barrett,
Dude ranch vacations are ideal for families, says Gene Kilgore. Ranch Manager. More fun comes with hay wagon rides, square dancing and a children’s race on stick horses they’ve created. Adults bet on them with play money. Accommodations are for 45 in duplex cabins (see https://ranchweb. com/tour/bill-rankin/). Colorado’s Lost Valley Ranch in the front range of the Rockies welcomes ages 6 and up to walk, trot and even lope under the supervision of trained counselors. Ages 3 to 5 can also be led around on horseback to explore the ranch. “Children learn the true ropes of being cowgirls and cowboys,” explains Stephanie Geary in Guest Services. “Sometimes they ride from ten in the morning until four in the afternoon. Every day the rides are mixed up with games, a creek swim or stories the wranglers tell about the history of Lost Valley.” Scavenger hunts and themed outings challenge imaginations while exploring this ranch world. Cabins with one, two or three bedrooms accommodate up to 85 guests during the summer season (see https://ranchweb.com/ tour/lost-valley-ranch/). Montana’s Nine Quarter Circle Ranch wants parents to feel comfortable fishing and riding while their children are learning the ins and outs of
horsemanship with a kid wrangler or spreading their wings playing hide and seek or fishing. “Our Small Fry group (5 and under) can be led around on horses and supervised while parents spend time in the saddle. One of our gems is our Rough Riders group (ages 6 to 9), which has the individualized attention of our Kiddie Wrangler. They
learn skills on horseback, gaining confidence with their peers throughout the week,” underscores Sally Kelsey, co-general manager. Ages 10 and up are paired with horses and group trail rides according to ability levels. Accommodations for 55 are log cabins from one to four bedrooms (see https:// ranchweb.com/?s=quarter+circle). Wyoming’s Paradise Ranch in the Big Horn Mountains has been a dude ranch since 1907. “We get a lot of extended families because the kids are totally taken care of,” says Clay Miller, who is Managing Owner with his wife Leah. “We really emphasize getting the kids – even the teens -- outdoors and becoming involved in activities that re-attach them to the outdoors.” One staff person is assigned to teens and three others to younger guests. Under age 6 can enjoy pony rides and older kids are on horses. The ranch can also accommodate infants. Accommodations for 70 are in newly renovated log cabins with up to four bedrooms. For details see https://www.top50ranches.com/ ranch-vacations/paradise-ranch Gene Kilgore publishes three websites, www.top50ranches.com, www. ranchweb.com and www.ranchvacations.com, which focus on what truly is one of America’s most iconic homegrown experiences – the dude ranch vacation.

Many students also collaborated with their fellow peers and put their paths together to see what the Ozobot would do. The interactive science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics lesson helped students build their 21st-century

Administrators, faculty, students and families gathered in the auditorium of Levittown’s Gerald R.

facilitate the special event. “All of you are so important to the future workforce,” said Ms. Cuomo. “Currently, many companies are finding such a shortage of skilled workers, also known as the skills gap that exists in our nation right now. All of you who are choosing to learn a skill are making advances to decrease that skills gap and making our communities stronger.” Seniors from GC Tech’s automotive technology, electrical technology and construction management programs were introduced one by one onto the stage as they shared their plans to continue to hone their skills and pursue different trades. Each student announced their future
ness of career options in the skilled trades. GC Tech, in the Levittown Public Schools, is a unique school program dedicated to teaching comprehensive career and technical skills. With a dedicated staff, the program offers a hands-on learning experience in a variety of skilled trades such as automotive technology, computer animation, cosmetology, culinary arts, electrical technology and more. With the help of Klein Tools representatives, the school was one of only five schools throughout the country to have their ceremony streamed live on Klein Tools’ Facebook page.

The students all received a Klein Tools T-shirt, hat, bag and pliers.

Students utilized the application WeDo 2.0 on an iPad in the Central Boulevard Elementary to control their “Milo” Mars rovers. Third-graders at the Bethpage Union Free School District’s Central Boulevard Elementary School utilized resources in the STEM lab to create Mars rovers named “Milo.” Milo is a robot constructed from Legos and programmed through the WeDo 2.0 application. Students worked with partners to build their Milos then programmed them on an iPad to be controlled via Bluetooth capability. Each pair controlled their robots in an
attempt to pull a Lego flower. On the following day, two groups combined their rovers to double the strength and create an easier pull. Additionally, using two Milo rovers allowed for turning and moving that was unavailable with just one. The lesson incorporated technology and engineering while adding the fun of how scientists and astronauts use rovers in outer space. Photos courtesy of the Bethpage Union Free School District

Breast Cancer Surgery With No Visible Scar
NYU Winthrop is Long Island’s first Hidden Scar Center of Excellence. ®
NYU Winthrop’s Breast Health Center, first in Nassau County to be accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), is now the first hospital on Long Island to offer Hidden Scar surgery, a sophisticated new approach to breast cancer surgery that hides the scar so effectively it’s virtually invisible. A specially trained Hidden Scar surgeon makes a small incision—much smaller than with traditional breast surgery—in a hidden area, beneath the breast, for example. The cancerous tissue is removed through that incision, thus preserving the natural shape of the breast. Less accessible tissue is illuminated with special technology to be seen clearly by the surgeon and removed with virtually no scarring. At NYU Winthrop, we have always understood the powerful emotions that can overwhelm any woman dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis. That’s why we are so pleased to be the first to make available this remarkable surgical advance. To learn more, call 1-866-WINTHROP or visit nyuwinthrop.org.
