Final hearing set for new apartment development

A WINNING SEASON

Lawsuit against GCPD settled BY RIKKI N. MASSAND

The Village of Garden City and a former Nassau County Corrections officer and Army veteran, Ronald Lanier, have agreed to a $150,000 settlement for a 2017 claim Lanier brought against the village and the Garden City Police. Lanier alleged that on November 30, 2016, members of the police force beat him, threw him on

the ground and verbally abused him as they went through the Western Beef supermarket in Mineola “recklessly arresting the first black male they spotted inside the supermarket.” Lanier had been shopping for groceries to make a dinner with his kids, but he claims that GCPD officers racially profiled him and used excessive force in wrongfully arresting him as they were searching for an

African American male suspect in a petty larceny who had shoplifted a purse/handbag from the Lord & Taylor store on Franklin Avenue in Garden City. In the court settlement the Village of Garden City, its police department and the officers and police leadership named in the suit do not admit damages or wrongdoing against Lanier in the incident or thereafter. See page 52

The final public hearing for the 555 Stewart Avenue proposal, a 150- unit apartment complex, which would include 10% affordable housing units, have been set for Thursday, June 7. During earlier hearings, the Board of Trustees has heard significant public outcry against the project. The application also is at a standstill for the next few weeks pending some additional information that the Board of Trustees has said it needs to make its environmental impact determination on the development, as well the zoning change required. Special municipal zoning counsel for Garden City A. Tom Levin says the process of gathering the necessary data for the Board of Trustees to make its environmental review determination, using the long-form SEQRA (State Environmental Quality Review Act) was not complete by May 10. The Board voted to appoint itself as the lead agency for this application’s SEQRA process. “Our consultants at H2M asked the applicant to provide additional information and the applicant has been doing that. But he needs some information from the Village of Garden City in order to finish that as well. Essentially what we are looking for are documentation that indicates, as the applicant claims, this project would not have any substantial fiscal impact on the village for services that are going to be provided,” Levin said last Thursday. Walsh later explained the current delay. “Historically there is an issue around SEQRA as it relates to just gathering the appropriate information. We have a planner (VHB Engineering) and the village has a planner, H2M Engineering, and on April 17 we had submitted what we thought of as the proper responses and what we considered sufficient data per H2M’s request to study impacts on the village,” he said. Second, the Village of Garden City is awaiting the necessary recommendation from the Nassau County Planning Commission that would allow the Board of Trustees to conclude its processes and take a vote on the application. “That is part of the function of the data we are trying to get and the fact that the County Planning Commission meets on a rather sparse schedule,” Levin said. Mayor Brian Daughney asked if Garden City’s representation (Levin and Peter Bee) could contact the Nassau County Planning See page 53

A WORD FROM THE PUBLISHER

Trash in the public sphere

Garden City's school budget passed easily this week, with a vote of 1,000 to 262, in one of the most lopsided victories in recent memory. Residents of Garden City are generally happy with the "deal" they get with our local governments. Yes, taxes in Garden City, as well as all of Nassau County, are high. But as long as people feel they are getting their money's worth they will continue to vote in favor of the budget. People feel that Garden City's schools are doing a great job, and even those without children in the schools are generally happy that the school system supports the high prices of homes in the Village. (See all of the real estate ads in this week's issue for confirmation of the strong real estate market.)

Which is why the various complaints we have heard, and letters we have received, about trash being a problem around town should be taken seriously. One of the things that Garden City has prided itself on in the past is the beauty of its public spaces. There are trees and public garden spaces throughout the Village which add value to living here. But once litter starts to accumulate, it brings the whole area down. Perhaps there need to be more public trash receptacles (which would need to be serviced regularly). But it does seem that a good spring cleaning is much more necessary this year than in prior years. So what has changed?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Email: Editor@GCNews.com

Trash problem needs to be addressed

To the Editor: I would like to add to the earlier comments regarding the trash issue in GC. In addition to the areas mentioned in the earlier letters, the town is doing a very poor job of maintaining buffer zones next to parking fields. The buffer zone near Parking Field 5 on 5th Street (next to my house) is a perfect example of this issue. I have to consistently clean the space as the town does not provide any spring or fall cleanup and I have to constantly remind them to cut the grass. Every year I fill 35-40 contractor bags of pine cones and yard debris from the buffer zone. The individuals who use Parking Field 5 use the parking area and the buffer zone as a dumping ground. This issue needs to be addressed by the town! Alan Fressle

Trash, speeding are problems

To the Editor: In recent weeks, the Garden City News has published letters discussing two issues that are related: The amount of trash along many roadways and the epidemic of speeding (and resulting accidents) in our Village. I agree with other letter-writers that there is a noticeable increase of garbage along many of our most heavily travelled roads. I will add to the list Chestnut Street between St. Paul’s South and Franklin. I drive this road almost every day and observed, among other garbage, a yellow plastic bag of trash, clearly thrown from a moving vehicle, that ended up on the retaining wall along the road. It sat there for months and was only removed last week. Today, I saw more, new trash lying on the street in the same area. Let’s hope it does not take months to have it removed. This stretch of road is heavily used by drivers cutting through the Village, and my guess is that it is non-Village residents who have no problem discarding their trash on our streets. At least I hope it is non-Village residents who litter here. The same cannot be said of the speed-

ing problem. Unfortunately, many of our neighbors are as guilty as non-residents – and not only speeding, but running stops signs, as well. I live on Washington Ave. at the corner of a street that provides direct access to the Country Life Press train station. In the almost 25 years I have lived in my house, there have been, on average, at least six accidents a year at this intersection. Residents and non-residents alike have been involved. All are caused by speeding and a driver jumping a stop sign. Fortunately, no one has been killed or seriously injured. The two most recent accidents caused both cars to jump the curb and end up – in each case with one vehicle on its side – on what is an active bus stop and popular spot for dog walking. Had someone been waiting for the bus or walking their dog when the accidents occurred, they would have probably been killed. Installing speed cameras may discourage non-residents to find other routes to their destination, reducing traffic and litter, and train residents to drive within speed limits and observe stop signs. Something has to be done. Let’s hope these issues remain front and center and the Village acts – and soon. Linda Ryan

What’s missing here?

To the Editor: It makes me sad to see Garden City becoming a not so special place anymore. You can start with a letter alerting our administrators of the accumulation of trash all over town. All of the green spaces owned by the town, by the LIRR and utilities are just teeming with garbage tossed from cars, dropped into bushes, blown from yards. I was surprised the writer could see all this from their car because if you take a walk anywhere in town you can’t help but notice it and get a bit angry. What’s missing here? In Franklin Court, the field is now mowed by an outside contractor that does a lousy job and most likely follows their contract to the letter, which means the mow the lawn and that’s it.

555 Stewart Avenue Public Hearing to continue on June 7th

Two public hearings first held March 22, 2018 to consider a proposed local law to amend the Village’s R-T Zone regulations, grant a special use permit and grant site plan review regarding vacant land located at 555 Stewart Avenue will continue during the Thursday, June 7, 2018 Board of Trustees meeting beginning at 8:00 p.m. This will be the third continuation of the hearings to enable public comment on the proposed construction. Hearings continued during the April 12, 2018 and May 10, 2018 Board meetings. 550 Stewart Acquisitions LLC is requesting the zoning change or amendment to permit a multiple dwelling building at the property. The Zoning Change Review Committee has been reviewing this application for many months. The property is a 4.5 acre lot which is presently vacant and unsightly. As proposed, the construction would include 150 rental units - 20 one-bedroom, 115 two-bedroom and 15 three-bedroom units. As required by the Federal Court decision, 15 units would be classified as affordable, while the remaining units would be at market price. Details of the proposed multiple residence building are included in the Committee’s report and recommendation to the Board of Trustees, copies of which are available on the Village’s website, www.gardencityny.net, and at Village Hall.

LIRR Reimbursement

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority/Long Island Rail Road has reimbursed the Village for the cost of work done at the Stewart Manor train station parking lot. The total amount of $264,438.68 will be appropriated as follows: Engineering - Overtime:

$3,004.48; Engineering - Part-Time: $1,172.31; Capital Projects: $243,420.48 (to allocate funds back to the Road Paving Project); Street Lighting Materials and Supplies: $15,000; Street Lighting - Overtime: $1,841.41. The MTA/LIRR is renovating the Stewart Manor train station in order to accommodate an anticipated influx of commuter traffic while work is being done at the nearby New Hyde Park train station/intersection as part of the third track project. The Village was planning on repaving the Stewart Manor parking lot in 2017 as part of its road paving program but in talks with the MTA they agreed to reimburse the Village for the cost of repaving that lot, upwards of $350,000. In September 2017 Trustees approved an inter-municipal agreement between the Village and the MTA. All work was performed by Valente Contracting Corp. pursuant to Valente’s existing paving contract with the Village. As part of the project, additional lighting was added to the lot as well.

Re-Dedication of Doubleday plaques following Memorial Day Parade

William Bradford Turner Post, No. 265, American Legion Auxiliary, will conduct its Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 28, 2018, beginning at 10:00 a.m. This year’s ceremony and parade will include the re-dedication of the Doubleday plaques. Theodore Roosevelt laid the cornerstone for the new Doubleday building 1910. It was the first urban-to-suburban move by a corporation. The original Doubleday facility (1910-1998) on Franklin Avenue had two large bronze plaques in its front entrance that commemorated the Doubleday employees who served in the armed forces during World War I and World War II, and those that perished. When Doubleday departed and a new owner was renovating the building, Garden City veteran and local history buff Cyril Smith secured the discarded plaques for the Village. These plaques will be re-dedicated and placed in the vicinity of the War Memorial area on Seventh Street, across from the Garden City Hotel. They are being gifted by the Garden City Historical Society. Walter Hines Page served as F.N. Doubleday’s original partner in the Doubleday Page publishing business. He was responsible for Doubleday's move from New York City to Garden City. Descendants of Walter Hines Page will be attending the ceremony, including Susan Page Trotman and her husband, Stanley. Susan is the great-granddaughter of Walter Hines Page and a granddaughter of Arthur

W. Page.

Bond Resolutions

To continue the critical task of maintaining Village infrastructure, the Garden City Board of Trustees unanimously adopted nine bond resolutions during its May 10, 2018 meeting: • Air Stripping Tower: The Village will acquire and install an air stripper for Well Nos. 15 and 16 for an estimated bond amount of $5,161,000. This project is scheduled for the fall after the busy summer pumping season and will be an improvement to the current GAC filtration system. It will give the Village the ability to use Well Nos. 15 and 16 year round, rather than shutting them down in the winter time, which is current practice. • DPW Equipment: In the 2018/19 Fiscal Year, the Village is scheduled to purchase four new vehicles and five equipment pieces in order to replace older models that are at the end of life for an estimated bond amount of $998,580. • Roof Replacement at DPW Yard Building: The Village will replace the roof at the Village Yard for an estimated bond amount of $204,000. • Roof Replacement at Village Hall: The Village will replace the roof at Village Hall for an estimated bond amount of $178,500. • Road Improvements: The Village will make road improvements through Garden City for an estimated bond amount of $1,691,160. These are expenses related to the Village paving program, which includes road reconstruction and paving. • Improvements to Sewer Mains: The Village will make various improvements to Village sewer mains for an estimated bond amount of $255,000. This is preventative maintenance, camera-ing, lining and repairing sewer mains that have been identified as issues. This is done to prevent larger catastrophic breaks such as what happened on Whitehall Blvd. this past winter. • Improvements to Curbs and Sidewalks: The Village will make various improvements to Village curbs and sidewalks for an estimated bond amount of $214,200. These are expenses related to the Village paving program, which includes repair and replacement of Village sidewalks and curbs. • Recreation and Parks Equipment: The Village will purchase numerous vehicles and equipment pieces in order to replace older models that are at the end of life for an estimated bond amount of $266,000. Plans are to replace one 14-year-old pick-up truck with a snow plow and lift gate, one 15-year-old SUV, several pieces of turf See page 30

Alumni welcome to play in musical tribute to Bobby Menges

The Garden City High School Music Department cordially invites you to an Evening at the Pops on May 30th, at 7PM in the Garden City High School Inez Norman Spiers Auditorium. In addition to music from Broadway, Hollywood, and various popular artists performed by the high school’s choral and band ensembles, the concert will feature the world premiere of a very special piece. In the Mourning, Shouts of Joy, by award-winning and world-renowned composer Stephen Melillo, was commissioned by the Garden City High School Band Program, with the support of Principal Nanine McLaughlin and the Trojan Club. The work was written in honor and memory of band alumnus and beloved community member Bobby Menges, Class of 2015. The music so poignantly captures the emotions of Bobby’s struggles, the pain of his loss, and ultimately, the joy and triumph of his life. One of Bobby’s greatest loves was sharing music with others. In this spirit, the High School Music Department is inviting alumni of the band program to join them in this special premiere performance. Any former band members who knew Bobby and would like to be part of this heartfelt musical tribute, even if they have not picked up their instruments for a while, are most welcome

Garden City High School musicians to play the piece at the concert. There will be a mandatory dress rehearsal at 10AM on Tuesday, May 29th in the High

School auditorium to prepare for the performance. Anyone interested should contact Director of Bands, Dr. James

P. McCrann at mccrannj@gcufsd.net to receive the sheet music and instructions.

& Prizes for All

This Sunday, May 20th at 4PM, the Cathedral of the Incarnation is hosting a unique concert featuring marimba, organ, vibraphone, and electronics. The concert will showcase some of the expanded repertoire for these instruments, utilizing them in unconventional ways and with extended techniques. Atlanta-based composer and percussionist Bryan Michael Wysocki and the Cathedral’s Director of Music, Larry Tremsky, will perform. The program is centered around two pieces: Nico Muhly’s “Beaming Music” for marimba and organ, and Steven Snowden’s “Long Distance”, a four-movement piece for vibraphone, marimba, and electronics. Wysocki and Tremsky will also perform extended improvisation on the instruments. Nico Muhly is one of the most popular contemporary classical composers

in the world, having written more than 80 works for the concert stage, including two operas and three film soundtracks. Steven Snowden is a composer who has written for dance, theater, multimedia, and concert stages. Snowden’s piece “Long Distance” explores communication in the past, such as pay telephones, and the sounds created by these machines. The concert will take place in the beautiful main sanctuary of the Cathedral of the Incarnation, with excellent acoustics. The suggested donation is $20 for general seating, $10 for seniors. Students and children are admitted free. Tickets are available at the door and can be paid in cash or check made out to Music in the Cathedral. Questions can be e-mailed to cathedral@incarnationgc.org or (516) 746-2955.

A scene from last year’s Memorial Day Fair For going on sixty-five years, the Cathedral of the Incarnation has hosted a Garden City tradition: The Memorial Day Fair. From 12PM to 4PM on Monday, May 28th, the Cathedral will continue that historic tradition while stepping into the future with new rides and games. When deciding which rides to add and which rides to scrap this year, planners Beth Pughe and Jeanette Hartmann asked the experts: their kids. The votes came in for a 9-hole miniature golf course, a gladiator joust, and lots of inflatables. The planners are keeping the traditional favorites as well, such as a trackless train, goldfish booth, and pony rides. In addition to the many games available for children of all ages, the fair promises lots of hometown shopping.

Local vendors will have booths across the campus, and the beautiful Victorian See House will be home to a “country store” with souvenirs from the cathedral and other items for sale. The always popular concerts with Patriotic Sing-Alongs will take place at 1PM and 3PM. This year, the concerts will feature pianist Veslin Ninov and some of Ninov’s prize-winning piano students. Guided tours will be available after each concert. “Dunk the Dean” will also take place again this year, where the youth of Garden City have the chance to send the Very Rev. Michael Sniffen, Dean of the Cathedral, into the dunk tank. For more information about the fair, contact Beth Pughe at (516) 941-8881 or beth.pughe@outlook.com.

On Sunday, June 10th, the Cathedral of the Incarnation will host a brunch with food provided and sponsored by Walk Street. 100% of the proceeds will be given to The Interfaith Nutrition Network. The brunch will take place between 11AM and 1PM at The Mercer School of Theology courtyard, located just southwest of the Cathedral at 65 Fourth Street. The courtyard is full of beautiful flowers, trees, and ivy. Indoor seating by the windows will also be available. Live music will accompany the brunch. This is the Cathedral’s third “INNcarnation” event. INNcarnation is a Cathedral initiative to raise money and awareness for The INN. The first event,

also a brunch by Walk Street, took place in the undercroft of the Cathedral last November and raised over $6,000. The latest was a cocktail party for Twelfth Night, which brought the total raised for The INN to well over $10,000. The cathedral also brings ten volunteers to The INN every month to serve in the soup kitchen and clothing shop. Tickets are $60 each and can be purchased online at INNcarnationJuneBrunch.eventbrite. com, or by mailing a check made out to Cathedral of the Incarnation with the memo “INN Brunch” to Cathedral of the Incarnation, 36 Cathedral Avenue, Garden City, NY, 11530.

The session is open to the community; no professional medical experience is required. Free kits are available to those who pre-register.

It is a prescription medicine that blocks the effects of opioids and reverses an overdose. Trained individuals are allowed to possess and administer Narcan™ to a person having an overdose. Research has shown that with basic training, non-medical professionals such as friends, family members, or concerned bystanders can administer

the lifesaving antidote. David Neubert, MD, Board Certified Emergency physician at NYU Winthrop, will provide the training; registered nurses will assist with the instruction. Dr. Neubert will also offer a brief overview of the opioid crisis and Narcan. The program will begin promptly at 6PM; registration begins at 5:30PM.

With the Garden City Traffic Commission set to meet on May 24 for the first time since March, and with new members on the Commission after the Board of Trustees’ reorganization meeting, various areas of the village were in focus for suggestions and review at the municipal level. Last Tuesday night the Central Property Owners’ Association (CPOA) Board of Directors approved a motion for the Garden City Traffic Commission to vote next week on the installation of a stop sign at the intersection of Mayfaire Avenue and First Street. Pat DiMattia, CPOA director and liaison to the Traffic Commission addressed one item of correspondence the CPOA recently received from a resident on the intersection. “If you are on Rockaway Avenue going west on First, at the intersection of Mayfaire and First it is a T-intersection. There is no stop sign for cars turning right and going east. I think it makes perfect sense for a stop sign there and kids living nearby take the bus from across the street. The stop sign should be on Mayfaire and cause cars to stop as

they should before pulling onto First,” said on May 8. The Western Property Owners’ Association Officers and Directors’ meeting the following night, Wednesday May 9, featured a discussion on a potential stop sign and pedestrian crossing traffic installation for New Hyde Park Road in the business district and going across from St. Anne’s, as a resident had requested placing one at Vassar Street or Dartmouth Street. The immediate past WPOA president and current director Maureen Dellacona explained the interest on May 9. “The idea was for a stop sign similar to Tulip Avenue in Floral Park, the village area with the lighted-up signage for crossing the street. That’s what was proposed to work down near St. Anne’s,” she said. WPOA President Gerry Kelly said this related back years for when St. Anne’s requested a traffic light in place “but it never got done.” He notes that there’s often been proposals for that area that “have not filtered through” for village approval from the Commission.

With the summer approaching, Samudra Yoga Studio at 62 New Hyde Park Road in the village’s western business district will again be offering weekly reflection time and life lessons for young women, teens and tweens in separate age-appropriate programs. The groundbreaking series “Lessons for My Daughters” laid down its roots in Garden City at Samudra Yoga in December. It has quickly made waves among community members as well earning a helping hand and endorsement from a prominent local political leader, Nassau County Legislator Laura Schaefer. Carmin Caterina founded the Lessons for My Daughters program after experiencing phases of her own two daughters’ childhood and education in Garden City, albeit in a private school setting. A few years ago her daughters were both enrolled in St. Anne’s School, right across New Hyde Park Road from Samudra Yoga, when she began working with administrators in area schools and delivering the program for other clients, including another in Garden City – the Girl Scouts of Nassau County.

Today Caterina has a teen daughter who graduated from St. Anne’s, a sophomore attending Sacred Heart Academy in Hempstead, while her younger child is still at St. Anne’s. The summer Lessons for My Daughters in Garden City begins the afternoon of Monday, July 9 and continues on July 16, 23 and 30, followed by August 6 and concluding on a Thursday afternoon, August 16. Each class, separated into tween and teen sessions, will run for one hour and 15 minutes. In other seasons this school year Caterina hosted Lessons for My Daughters over eight Sunday afternoons at Samudra Yoga, with classes from October through November (2018) followed by January through February and again from April through May. She expects to offer the program again in a similar format later this year. The upcoming summer 2018 sessions present a chance for girls to participate in 90-minute workshops and group discussions from July through August, leading up to the next school year and the kids’ step up in grades. Girls who participate in the weekly program will See page 31

GCPD to participate in Buckle Up New York enforcement initiative

The Garden City Police Department will be participating in the Statewide Buckle-Up New York enforcement initiative May 21

through June 3. The enforcement of seat belt and child restraint laws saves lives. During this initiative, highly visible patrols and checkpoints will be conducted throughout the Village, targeting non-compliance to occupant restraint laws including child safety seat laws. The goal of the Garden City Police Department’s Occupant Restraint Enforcement Program is to drastically reduce personal injuries and fatalities due to auto accidents through education and enforcement. Studies have shown that wearing a seatbelt can reduce the risk of fatal injury by 45 percent. According to the New York Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC), statistics show unrestrained or improperly restrained occupants account for 21 percent of highway deaths in New York, greater than alcohol-related factors and speeding. Commissioner Ken Jackson advises the Department’s participation in this effort has been made possible through funding received from the GTSC with assistance from the Nassau County Traffic Safety Board. The following is a brief overview from the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee regarding seatbelt/occupant laws for driving with passengers under the age of 16: • All front seat occupants regardless of age must wear safety restraints. The driver is responsible for all front seat passengers under age 16. • All rear seat passengers under age 16 must wear safety restraints. • All children under 4 years old must be restrained in a federally approved child safety seat. • Children ages 4, 5, 6 and 7 must be properly restrained in an appropriate child restraint system. • Drivers will be assessed three points against their driver’s license for the conviction of occupant restraint laws regarding child passengers under 16 years of age.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Email: Editor@GCNews.com From page 2 have been large fallen branches from trees sitting there for over a year and now pushed into the bushes so they can mow the lawn. Not in the contract I guess. What’s missing here? 7th Street is a run down, two bit, litter strewn thoroughfare that is showing all the wear and tear of use, neglect, degradation due to poor choice of building materials (i.e. pavers) The landscaping is scraggy and there is no character to the town. What’s missing here? What IS missing here or what I have noticed a lack of through firsthand observation, conversations and reflection is this. We have our gardeners pick up our spaces but if debris is not on our property we think that we have village services to take care of it. “We pay for the services don’t we?” The branches in the field have yet to be picked up. “Why aren’t our usual town services taking care of it?” The town has hired contractors and saved all kinds of money by outsourcing, yet the branches still sit there? How much are we really saving? There are merchants on 7th Street who make every effort to make their establishments look presentable and try hard to provide comfortable and inviting seating areas for outdoor dining and there are others that don’t even bother picking up the litter strewn outside their stores and let their litter blow over to their neighbors store fronts. “Don’t we have services from the village to keep things clean?” Is all this leading to something? I think this town has gotten its priorities mixed up. We used to have many services and employees performing the wide scale of services this town was known for. Now we freeze salaries, refuse to negotiate contracts with them, don’t even come to the bargaining table and leave these workers without a contract for five years. Costs are cut through attrition and outsourcing and reduction of services overall. You are not saving the money you think you are and you are losing skilled labor, job flexibility and goodwill. You think you are exercising good fiscal policy but you are showing overall you just don’t care about people. Those that work for you and those you work for. The lack of caring about people permeates everything you try to accomplish. Please sit down with our town service employees, negotiate in good faith, come up with a workable solution to all sides and take advantage of the extra work and pride you will see from the goodwill you generated.

Coincidence or miracle?

To the Editor: Personally, I don’t believe in mundane miracles however, reading an article published in the newspapers few days ago, I did wonder if what happened was just a ‘mere’ coincidence or perhaps something else with ‘magic’ intervention....? The article concern a 5 year old girl named Natalia who was attacked and bitten by a coyote infected with rabies. An off-duty policeman who was nearby, quickly intervened and wrestled the beast to the ground. His name is Arcangelo Liberatore and which roughly translated into English, means ‘Liberator Archangel’. Both, Natalia and her liberator were beaten by the animal but are now in perfect condition. I could not help after reading this article but to deeply reflex and think if this was just a mere occurrence or perhaps something else....? After all, I never heard of human Liberators Archangels walking down the city streets. I do find it rather unusual, But...? Antonio Moreno

National Waiter/Waitress Day

To the Editor: In these difficult economic times, it is especially important to patronize your favorite restaurants and honor the employees who make them a success. Why not join me in celebrating National Waiter and Waitress Day on May 21st? There are several ways to say thank you. Let your server(s), cooks and owners know how much you appreciate the excellent food and service. On this day, don’t forget your cook and server. We try to tip 20 percent against the total bill including taxes. If it is an odd amount, round up to the next dollar. Why not leave a 25% tip on this day? If you can afford to eat out, you can afford an extra dollar tip. When ordering take out, don’t forget to leave a dollar or two for the waiter or cook. Trust us, it is appreciated. Remember the people who work at your favorite restaurant are our neighbors. They work long hours for little pay and count on tips, which make up a significant portion of their income. If we don’t patronize our local restaurants, they don’t eat either. Your purchases keep our neighbors employed and the local economy growing. Why not drop off a box of candy, cookies or some other treat for your favorite waiter or restaurant staff on this day as well? Leave them a thank you card or note along with a larger than normal tip.

New Hyde Park Road from Garden City South complicates any type of recommendations for a traffic control. “The last thing you’d want to do is have kids crossing the street thinking they are safe and all of a sudden cars come flying through,” he said at the meeting. Vallely reminds residents considering the change for New Hyde Park Road that it is a Nassau County Road so any installation would need to go through at the county level, not within village government. Also at the CPOA meeting on May 8, DiMattia said that there is no news yet for the controversial issues impacting Village Lot 7N behind Key Food and Dunkin Donuts, involving residents of

the Hilton Hall apartments not being able to find spaces during day as LIRR commuters fill the lot, and unregulated commercial parking to boot. She said the Traffic Commission awaits its consultants report related to the downtown Garden City Streetscape, which was to be done at the request of the village’s Planning Commission as a survey of the parking potential downtown by Manhattan-based firm BFJ Planning. Any changes in regulations or configuration of the lot are hinged on the parking survey. “I check the village’s website weekly but I find it interesting our Planning Commission has approved minutes from October 2017 as its last posted minutes. Why aren’t discussions and topics from their meetings approved and

posted and made public knowledge. The Planning Commission is the designated group in charge of the survey data of parking field 7N. With the amount of work I have done with that parking field inspecting around and taking pictures, I could have done the survey myself,” DiMattia said. The WPOA liaison to the Traffic Commission, Richard Vallely, relayed his concerns last week at the WPOA meeting with the coming months and construction phasing for the Third Track project indicating the potential for havoc in the west and on northsouth county roads, some of which will be closed for periods of the project, the Long Island Rail Road owes the residents and Village of Garden City a report and more communication on

what exactly will take place. He was frustrated with the information the village has received from the LIRR to date and he requested that there be more delivered by LIRR officials ahead of the setup of construction, which he anticipated to begin by the fall. Kelly says he hopes to see some form of a traffic plan involving the impacts of the closure of Clinch Avenue near the New Hyde Park station. “I would like Rich (Vallely) as liaison to have his attention devoted to the Clinch situation for the coming weeks as representative of the West and everyone in the POA can contribute -- you are welcome to go out and petition and do the work necessary to get something in front of the village Traffic Commission,” Kelly said last week.

“Lessons for my Daughter” earns nod from Legislator From page1 receive a gratitude journal, a keepsake pocket mirror, samples of an organic bath and body products and an organic “Girl Powered” t-shirt. Parents and caregivers have the option to receive weekly updates on class discussions and ideas through an app “to foster further communication between you and your daughter” Caterina explained in an email to The Garden City News on Monday, May 14. Caterina said the classes offer an overall grounding and calming experience “where girls feel more rooted in their power and better equipped to handle whatever life throws at them.” She says after the school year, students are decompressing from the stresses that come with the academic school year. “One of the huge benefits of our workshop is learning tools for self care and ways to manage stress and anxiety, which is such a great skill set to have before the start of a new school year. Lessons For My Daughters empowers girls to not only see the power they have to affect change in their own individual lives, but in the community and the world at large,” Caterina explained this week. With efforts from Legislator Schaefer in the first few months of 2018, Nassau BOCES schools now have the ability to hire Caterina using the BOCES website as a vendor of the program to bring Lessons for My Daughters into the respective schools. “I read about this program in The Garden City News (December 8, 2017) and right away I felt like it is a great program for young women. Anything we can do to support our children in general, but especially for young women, I like to be involved in. I reached out to Carmen and offered to help in any way, and we met to talk about her program.

She mentioned bringing it into schools which is hard due to the funding, but there was a way to offer it through Nassau BOCES. I reached out to BOCES’ deputy superintendent and she contacted Ms. Caterina. As a result BOCES accepted Lessons for My Daughters into their program, which now enables them to get this into area schools much easier,” Legislator Schaefer explained in an interview on Tuesday, May 15. Meeting and motivating young women is one of Legislator Schaefer’s favorite parts of being in office, from attending Girl Scouts of Nassau County events and recently, participating in a women’s panel at NYCB Live featuring women leaders in sports and entertainment, including former WNBA player Allison Feaster. Schaefer said she’s also enjoyed speaking to groups of adult women about government and politics, including presentations for Ellevate New York. Caterina’s program and its focus on social emotional learning draws her attention for a variety of reasons as educators and government officials alike look closer at influences in each community. “I saw someone (Caterina) who took an idea and has made it work for the benefit of children and the growth of young women, and this is a very important topic to be involved in. It is about self-esteem and having been a young woman, I recall what it’s like to feel a bit insecure. It can be a difficult time and helping young women through this needs to be focused on more in our families and in our communities. Any effort to make sure we’re supporting and encouraging tweens and teens is a worthy cause to support,” Legislator Schaefer explained. She recognizes programs that are designed to encourage youth collaboration and personal enrichment as a frontline step to combating the opioid epidemic. “Often times, problems with sub-

stance abuse start in early adulthood or teenage years when kids feel they want to fit in and peer pressure leads to smoking or other self-destructive behaviors. If they are not feeling confident and supported kids can easily fall prey to picking up bad habits...That is so pervasive in our society and it needs to be focused on more: our children getting the support they need to grow up into young, confident adults,” the legislator said. 1In Garden City midway through calendar year 2018, there are and will be many prominent women in leadership positions visible to residents and families, including prospective teens and tweens for the Lessons for My Daughters program. Aside from Legislator Schaefer, Garden City is home to U.S. Congresswoman Kathleen Rice. In November 2017 Nassau County saw the election of Laura Curran and county executive and Laura Gillen become the Town of Hempstead Supervisor in a historic upset. On the local level, the president of the Garden City Board of Education is Angela Heineman, and she took over two years ago from another woman board president, Barbara Trapasso. The next Superintendent of Schools for Garden City will be another lady in leadership, Dr. Kusum Sinha, who officially takes her post on July 1 and will be sworn in at the school board’s reorganization meeting on July 10. In the village government after being re-elected as a trustee from the CPOA in March the current Deputy Mayor of Garden City, Theresa Trouvé, is poised to succeed Brian Daughney as mayor in 2019. Also the second woman member of the Board of Trustees, another former Garden City Board of Education president, Colleen Foley, was sworn in on April 12. Women in business are certainly part of the fabric of Garden City as well. At the home of Lessons for My

Daughters on New Hyde Park Road, co-founders of Samudra Yoga Sylvia Ehrhart and Melissa Deraval teach classes and encourage health, well-being and balance among regulars and visitors alike. Samudra translates into “ocean” in Sanskrit. On the same block as the yoga studio is the well-known Broadway Bound Dance Studio at 66 New Hyde Park Road and owned by a village resident and legendary choreographer, Debbie Tavernese. Across the street, the Well-Seasoned Chef is run by dynamic Chef Sophia Brivio, a Garden City resident and mom of three daughters who helps girls in their tweens and teens learn new culinary skills while building confidence. Caterina is happy so many real-life examples around Garden City and the country promote the many ways women both young and old take on leadership. Legislator Schaefer concurs and adds Carmin Caterina as an entrepreneur, with ‘what she is promoting’ in Garden City and greater New York, to the ever-growing list of positive female role models. Caterina tells the News her organization has hired its first social media manager and Facebook advertising has shown great potential in greater New York City and Long Island. She says with an increase to media coverage since her initial Garden City News article last December, her program is popping up more and more in Google searches and “new inquiries come from both moms and schools contacting us every day.” Last week Caterina emailed the News with comments on the recognition her program has recently experienced: “What a huge win for girls everywhere! The world is watching and we are here to stay and to make BIG changes. It means that people are beginning to see the need for social emotional learning, especially for girls,” she wrote.

THE VIEW FROM HERE

The Sports Betting Decision BY BOB MORGAN, JR. The decision of the United States Supreme Court to overturn the 1992 federal law that outlawed almost all sports betting outside Nevada will have numerous ramifications, good and bad. As a legal matter, the decision makes considerable sense. In its efforts to shield full scale sports betting in Nevada, the 1992 law prohibited sports wagering to be authorized by any state that did not allow it after a grandfather period. But, as Justice Samuel Alito wrote in his majority opinion, while Congress could choose to impose a nationwide sports betting ban, the 1992 law ran afoul of our federal system and in effect unconstitutionally allowed Congress to commandeer a state legislature. “It is as if federal officers were installed in state legislative chambers and were armed with the authority to stop legislators from voting on any offending proposals,” Justice Alito said. “A more direct affront to state sovereignty is not easy to imagine.” In many ways. the decision strikes a blow for personal freedom and common sense. Until now, I could legally bet in New York on the lottery, the horses or play slots or table games at a number of casinos around the state. However, even though point spreads are published in the newspapers, it has been at least technically illegal to wager on sports, and doing so in the Empire State (I don’t) would require involvement with sketchy bookies or offshore gambling sites. I just think that as a man of all too mature years, I shouldn’t be legally prohibited from throwing a few dollars on the team of my choice. Sports betting has been legal in Britain and Ireland for decades without great harm. In addition, of course, plenty of people are already willing to put up with illegal bookies and offshore sites, and legalizing and taxing these wagers makes good policy and economic sense. I also am not particularly persuaded that, at least concerning major league sports, legalizing gambling is likely to raise new issues of games being fixed. There is already

plenty of illegal gambling on games. In Britain, where there are actually betting kiosks in football (soccer) stadiums, the Premier League has not come under suspicion. The most significant issues that have arisen have involved relatively minor events like early round tennis matches. The decision will obviously be a game changer (no pun intended) in a number of respects. Assuming that sports betting is permitted at most casinos and racetracks around the country, this will likely revitalize a number of these locales and will probably increase the interest of many people in spectator sports. Of course, there are many uncertainties like how much online (incuding inplay) wagering will take hold and whether this will inhibit in-person attendance at tracks and casinos and how much all this will affect Las Vegas, which already seems to be diversifying its appeal to include many more nongambling attractions. Let me be clear. Legalized sports gambling is not an unmitigated good thing. A percentage of the population wagers far too much. These individuals get caught up in a gambling addiction that is bad for the individual involved and for the person’s family. A desperate desire to cover betting obligations or recoup losses can lead to neglect of personal obligations, failure to pay other debts or even to criminal activity. Of course, an individual seeking to place a bet can always find an illegal online or in-person bookmaker, but the legalization of these activities arguably provides more opportunity to wager coupled with an extra sheen of legitimacy and respectability. At some point, however, as we found out with the attempt to impose liquor prohibition, it is pretty much impossible to outlaw an activity that many people enjoy and regard as pretty harmless, even one with potential harmful side effects. Attempts to do so simply play in to the hands of criminal elements. And so, on balance, the effect of the Supreme Court decision is likely to be positive.

Father/Daughter, Mother/Son Dances for GCHS Seniors On Friday, June 15th and Saturday, June 16th, the Men’s Association of the Garden City High Schools will once again host the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son Dances for graduating senior students. E-mail invitations have been sent to all Garden City High School senior parents, and the TMA urges them to check their e-mails for details. More than 75 years ago, the TMA began this annual springtime, pre-graduation tradition, and it is still one of the most popularly attended events on parents’ and students’ schedules. While the event used to be held in May, the TMA realized the logistical challenges of scheduling the events when so many students were still involved in extracurricular activities. Thus, the Father/ Daughter and Mother/Son Dances were moved to the weekend prior to graduation to kick off graduation week activities. Many years ago, Cherry Valley Country Club played host to the original Father/Daughter Dances. The events changed locations a couple of times before finding a home with the Nassau County Bar Association for many years. Within the last 20 years, mothers of senior boys wanted to enjoy the same experience as fathers and daughters,

and the Mother/Son Dance was created. Both events will be at the Nassau County Bar Association this year, with the Father/Daughter Dance beginning on Friday, June 15th at 6:30 PM. The Mother/Son Dance will also start at 6:30 PM on Saturday night. As the new catering service for the Nassau County Bar Association, Cloakroom Caterers will provide a buffet-style dinner, and tables will be decorated with beautiful floral arrangements from a local florist. Garden City graduate and professional photographer Mary Winn-Ball – herself a Father/Daughter Dance participant – will once again be on-hand to take a formal picture of each couple. All couples will be able to pick up their picture in a beautiful frame at the end of the evening. MFusco entertainment will provide a professional DJ to get everyone out on the dance floor and rocking to hits familiar to both parents and seniors. The Men’s Association would like to thank the Nassau County Bar Association for allowing us the use of their beautiful facility once again. We would also like to thank Cloakroom catering, Mary Winn-Ball and MFusco Entertainment for partnering with the TMA.

Benefit concert planned for S. African drought

On June 10, there will be a benefit concert at UUCCN, 223 Stewart Avenue, Garden City NY 11530, from 4 to 7 PM. The money will go to aid water conservation efforts in South Africa. Five talented singer-songwriters will be sharing the stage. There will be a short intermission, with snacks available. Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, Toby Tobias has immersed himself in many genres of American Music while never leaving behind his roots in the rhythms and melodies of his homeland. His keen ear for intuitive arrangements is a hallmark of his writing and performance, and he has garnered a strong following on Long Island and in the tri-state area. In addition to his work as a singer/songwriter, Tom Griffith is also an award-winning music producer, having written and produced jingles for a raft of national advertising campaigns. His solo CD, Forty Years Later, was chosen by Newsday as the #1 Indie CD of the year when it was released in 2007. Martha Trachtenberg was a found-

ing member of the Buffalo Gals, the first all-woman bluegrass band. Since then, her songs have been covered by bluegrass artists including Tony Trischka and Skyline; Nothin’ Fancy; Missy Raines and Jim Hurst; Kathy Chiavola; and Dede Wyland. Jean-Paul Vest’s off-beat tunes focus on the quiet joys and struggles of everyday life. He has released four albums and an EP, gaining mention in several “Best of the Year” lists. His newest release, “Race to the Sound,” was recommended as a Top Pick by the reviewers at babysue.com. Michael Sansonia’s Madrigal Group performed at a Hollywood premier, his country band at the Transvaal Derby, and his Star Wars cantina cover band at the Princeton Gala. He conducted the original production of Little Shop of Horrors, and now performs his own original songs. For more information please visit, www.uuccn.org or call 917-797-2225.

Members of the Mineola-Garden City Rotary Club were amazed at the methods in place that are helping to change the lives of families who live in the rural villages of Cambodia. The Club welcomed Gabor Karsai, guest speaker, who serves on the board of the “Sustainable Cambodia Project.” Mr. Karsai reported on how the Project works to create a sustainable quality of life for Cambodians through the creation of wells, irrigation systems, schools, training and empowerment. He presented a slide show on the trip taken by 40 Rotarians from various clubs of Long Island, Australia, and Canada who joined together with “Sustainable Cambodia” on a journey into the heart of Cambodia and its rural villages. Gabor Karsai told of Cambodia’s two seasons – one wet, the other dry. He said during wet season, everything is flooded. Often, the only water Cambodians have access to is from puddles. He showed slides of the amazing water purifiers that provide drinking water along with non-drinking water for uses other than for drinking. Rotarians saw slides showing crops being hand-watered and of the bamboo train which carried the visiting Rotarians on a flatbed type transport run by a small motor and guided by a drone. Gabor Karsai said that a “Sustainable Cambodia” is Rotary’s “second most unifying project.” Rotary’s first Cambodian

Club was recently formed with 19 active members. Most of the financing for improvements in Cambodia comes for grants and that financial contributions are encouraged. Gabor said that a child can be sponsored for $300 per year. It is gratifying, he said, when one sees how the efforts of Rotarians, along with grants and contributions, can help change the lives of Cambodians. The “Sustainable Cambodia Project” motto: Save a Child, Save a Village, Child Safe. The Mineola-Garden City Rotary Club meets on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month, 1:15-1:30PM throughout the year. For information about Rotary, or to attend a lunch meeting, please call Alba Spinelli, Club president at 516-3078870.

Garden City Public Library Wednesday, July18th, @ 9:30 AM In Person Registration Tuesday, June 19th at 9:30AM In person registration for Garden City Library cardholders begins on Tuesday, June 19th at the Reference Desk of the Library for the next Coffee & Tea by the Book discussion. The program will be held on Wednesday, July 18th on the Lower Level at 9:30AM sharp. Librarians Laura Flanagan and Ann Garnett will moderate a discussion of Love and Ruin by Paula McLain. After the success of The Paris Wife — which gave the floor to Hadley Richardson and Pauline Pfeiffer, the first two wives of Ernest Hemingway — Paula McLain has returned with Love and Ruin, a novel about wife No. 3: the reporter and novelist Martha Gellhorn. The book is fueled by Martha’s questing

spirit, which asks why must a woman decide between being a war correspondent and a wife in her husband’s bed? If we ignore the white whale that is Ernest, this novel questions how to combine romantic desire with a drive to live for yourself. It’s a quandary, both for McLain and her fiery protagonist, and the solution isn’t easy. You can pick up a copy of the book Love and Ruin when you register at the Reference Desk. Copies of The Paris Wife will also be available at the Reference Desk for those who have not read it or would like to re-read it. You are welcome to bring your own coffee or tea. In person registration on June 19th is limited to Garden City Public Library cardholders. Non Garden City residents may register beginning July11th if space is available.

Stewart & Stratford students attend the Metropolitan Opera

Infant clothing collection by Girl Scouts at GC Library A donation box has been placed in the lobby of the Garden City Public Library to collect newborn clothing to help offset the cost for foster parents who volunteer through the Spence-Chapin adoption agency to care for newborns. These foster parents provide a safe and loving home, in addition to providing clothing and care for the infant’s needs, until adoption occurs. Girl Scouts Elena Severini and Melina Papachristos of Troop 1647 have organized this Covered in Care – Infant Clothing Collection for their Girl Scout

Silver-Award project. Donations can be new or gently used onesies, receiving blankets, socks, hats, baby towels/wash cloths, pajamas, undershirts, shirts, and pants. The collection continues until May 31st. Spence-Chapin is a nonprofit adoption agency that was founded in 1908. Spence-Chapin has provided domestic adoption for more than 20,000 children, greater than 4,000 international adoptions and has placed 424 children in foster care while seeking adoption.

Fifth graders from Stewart and Stratford recently attended a dress rehearsal of Massenet’s Cendrillon at the Metropolitan Opera. “The students study the opera in their music classes prior to attending the rehearsal,” shared Stewart music teacher Kelly Grace. “The students really enjoyed this debut production of Cinderella, which was sponsored by the Garden City PTA. Many thanks for the PTA’s support over the years!”

Well, that’s me on the left and the woman on the right is Reeve Lindbergh Charles Lindbergh’s youngest daughter. The photo was taken on May 20, 2002, on the 75th anniversary of her father’s famous first solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean to Paris. We are standing in front of a monument marking the spot where he took off from at Roosevelt Airfield on that rainy May morning in 1927. That location is behind where Fortunoff’s is today. He took off from there heading east and just cleared the telephone wires on Merrick Avenue. Reeve Lindbergh and the Lindbergh Foundation had come to Garden City from Minnesota and stayed at the Garden City Hotel just as her father had done the night before his flight in 1927. I spent the day with them and that morning we took a bus from the hotel to Republic Airport. There, an exact replica of Lindbergh’s plane, the “Spirit of St. Louis”, took off at exactly 7:52 a.m. as it happened 75 years earlier at Roosevelt Airfield. On the bus ride back to the hotel, I sat with Reeve and discussed her father’s place in history and what has happened to our country since then. I’ll always remember her saying to me “my dad would have enjoyed talking to you as you have a lot in common with him”. That was very nice and it was a very memorable day for me. This Sunday, it will be 91 years since a 25 year old took off from Roosevelt Airfield into the unknown and into history.

LIGMC to perform at Cathedral

SCHOOL AND CAMP DIRECTORY 2018

AND SCHOOLS

Members of the Long Island Gay Men’s Chorus are pictured at Suffolk County’s H. Lee Dennison Building in Hauppauge during rehearsals for their upcoming “Let’s Hear It For The Boys” concerts. It’s all about the “best of the boys”– the Beach Boys, the Backstreet Boys, and The Four Seasons, to name a few – as the Long Island Gay Men’s Chorus (LIGMC) celebrates LGBT pride and its 10th anniversary season with three performances in June. LIGMC’s “Let’s Hear It For The Boys” concerts, featuring more than six decades of hits from legendary male vocal groups, are scheduled for Friday, June 8th at the Cathedral of the Incarnation, 50 Cathedral Ave., Garden City, and Saturday, June 9 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Stony Brook, 380 Nicolls Road (CR 97) in Stony Brook. Showtime for those concerts is 8PM. “The Long Island Gay Men’s Chorus spring concerts are a celebration of

the joy and fun music can bring us. This year’s performances continue that decade-long tradition,” Tony Mazza, an LIGMC board member, said. As part of the celebration of LIGMC’s milestone anniversary season, chorus alumni are invited to join performances of “Seize the Day” - from the musical Newsies - and “Lean On Me/We Shall Overcome.” “Let’s hear it for 10 years of beautiful music!” LIGMC artistic director and accompanist Jeanette Cooper, a music educator and theatrical music director, said. Concert tickets are $25 and available at the door or online at ligmc.org.

Lawsuit against GCPD settled

From page 1 The $150,000 settlement was agreed to by Lanier on April 9, but the court order stipulates that the village will also pay for legal fees incurred by Lanier. That amount has yet to be determined and disclosed. Last year at the June 1 press conference on the case inside his Hempstead office, Lanier’s attorney Frederick Brewington said the GCPD never provided a report of the incident to Lanier and had not produced “a stitch of paper” that was requested about him being the subject of force by the officers. Brewington is also the attorney who won a federal fair housing discrimination case (the MHANY/ACORN litigation) against the Village of Garden City. Lanier’s lawsuit against the village and GCPD made multiple references to what the plaintiffs called racially-motivated housing and zoning restrictions in Garden City from 1969 to the 1990s, preceding the MHANY/ACORN litigation, “taken to prevent an influx of minority residents.” Once Lanier’s suit was filed nearly a year ago, Brewington traced back to the MHANY case and federal court ruling in 2014 to speak about a perceived trend in Garden City. “There is something terribly

wrong in Garden City – the GCPD has a real responsibility as does their government. Their village government has been found responsible for housing discrimination and other forms of discrimination, including those found by the Justice Department. Garden City needs to change the culture so that people of all faiths, backgrounds and races can feel free to be in Garden City without being singled out because of the color of their skin,” Brewington said. Earlier this week he called the settlement between the village and Lanier “a win,” signifying not only a positive monetary outcome, but “a positive moral outcome.” Last June 1, a tearful Lanier appeared in front of TV cameras and in photos accompanying news reports, commenting at the time “I just want equality for minorities and black young men and boys out there to live normal lives and become respected as American citizens. My goal is for those officers held accountable for their actions and for Garden City to change its form of policing – this (racial profiling) has been going on there since I was a child. Even then I was challenged just walking through that community.”

From page 1 Commission to “at least get back to us so we can make a decision.” Levin said he will be on the phone to the county on Friday, May 11 and make sure the village’s request will be on the Commission’s calendar. The county planning commission is scheduled to meet next on Thursday mornings, May 17, followed by June 7. Levin added that there was nothing he was aware of that remains “open in their minds” with the Nassau Planning Commission. The timeline of receiving the recommendation back from the county commission sets up the next hearing on the 555 Stewart Avenue application for the Board of Trustees’ meeting on June 7 at 8 p.m. in Village Hall. The public comment period will again be open on June 7, and after a move from Garden City Schools’ Board of Education this week there will certainly be more comment on the controversial proposal in the weeks and months ahead for public consumption, not including the potential lineup for the Nassau County IDA hearings later in the year, which could take place after an application from 550 Stewart Acquisitions LLC is submitted and put through the proper procedures. After several residents addressed the Board of Trustees in April and again May 10 opposing the project for multiple reasons, an official action came up earlier this week at another Garden City governing body meeting. Minutes before the Garden City Board of Education voted on its agenda this Tuesday, May 15, Board President Angela Heineman addressed the recourse for managing the application for 555 Stewart Avenue, following months of questions in the community and the applicant’s attorney (Walsh) delivering a presentation before the school board last November.

Board approves PR contract

As a first official step to recognizing the project’s potential for the IDA application, on May 15 the board of education approved a contract for “Strategic Communication Consultation” with PR firm Zimmerman/Edelson, Inc. through Nassau BOCES, “to effectively support the district’s outreach efforts in relation to the proposed multifamily housing development and related IDA PILOT payment issues,” as stated on its meeting agenda. The cost will be $3750 per month for up to six months, and the contract will be reviewed after three months (mid-August) to determine the district’s ongoing needs for strategic communications on the development. Heineman says she and her fellow school board members do not want to see the taxpayer base and residents burdened in the form of higher taxes by the PILOT that could be granted for 555

Stewart Acquisitions LLC, commenting the board “stands with the community.” She notes the driving reason to hire the communications consultant was, with the developer probably seeking an IDA, to support school district efforts “to oppose any adverse economic impacts” that residents could face in years to come. But what she did not address on Tuesday night were the many concerns over the number of schoolchildren that the new 150 apartments could generate, which was the topic for several residents during the public comments to the Board of Trustees on May 10. At last week’s continuation of the hearing, Walsh spoke about the ongoing process. He also said a report by the applicants’ team of consultants indicates a few key points with the project’s plans. “When it comes to village taxes we are paying in full and will always be doing so. Since most services associated with our building will be village services, we are paying for those and will continue to pay for those, noting there is a difference with multiple residents such as the apartments or a private residence as it relates to economies of scale...The data we submitted shows that multiple dwellings are actually less per-unit in terms of costs to the village to provide services. We (the 555 Stewart Avenue apartment project) will be a positive influence on the Village of Garden City budget. Mr. Levin is correct though as we had submitted the information and the H2M planner, on behalf of Garden City, said they would like to see more information to perform their job and close out this issue with a ‘hard look’ – he wanted some actual data from the village, which Village Administrator Ralph Suozzi has been very helpful to get to us. Within a couple of days we will get that data over to VHB Engineering, who will conclude their report and submit it to H2M to give you what you (the Board) need to consider,” Walsh explained. Former Village Trustee Tom Lamberti said Walsh’s distinction between paying full village taxes and not the school district taxes is flawed. “Taxes are not based on a fee for services provided to the property owner...Would the developer do the project if he paid the full school taxes? The village controls the application and that is why he is paying all the village taxes,” Lamberti said in an email to The Garden City News. Lamberti commented further on May 14 after learning of what took place when the Board met on May 10. He says Walsh has cleverly shifted the argument since his initial presentation to say the project will clearly pay for the number of schoolchildren that are generated from the apartments (through a 20-year PILOT), as total student population generated is projected to be a low sum.

“We can debate how many kids would come and the district taxes (amounts) that would cover all of their public educations -- we do not know how much that is and eventually how much they (550 Stewart Acquisitions LLC) will pay. There’s a bigger argument as Mr. Walsh said they will pay all the village’s taxes. They made the deal with the Village of Garden City and when he pays that 100% he is also paying his share for all the services rendered to residents of Garden City, sanitation and parks, etc. We all do that portion of tax for the same reasons. If you take that and put it next to the school district tax proposal, the applicants need to pay all the same taxes to the school district as the district provides its services to all children in the district. Taxes are not paid by somebody only if they have kids in Garden City Schools. He is trying to argue paying 100% of the village for its services but when it comes to the school district he says ‘I only want to pay for services that are rendered to kids coming from the apartments’ -- that notion is inherently unfair and contrary to how we pay taxes,” Lamberti said. Lamberti noted the Village Board of Trustees and the Garden City Board of Education and school district as separate legal entities, and given the land use and zoning being Village of Garden City matters, there is no official stance the school board can make through a vote to approve or deny the project as it has no jurisdiction. But Lamberti says school taxes are a part of community dialogue at the Village Board of Trustees’ level and this application has a certain implication for taxpayers, so the trustees can invite official comments from the board of education to be part of the hearings. “They (the Board of Trustees) do not say to Mr. Walsh ‘we aren’t interested in the school tax and PILOT proposal because we’re the village. If Walsh gets up in each presentation and speaks about what the developer is going to do for the schools, the Board of Trustees should invite a response from the school board,” he tells the News.

Discussion at CPOA

Last week Hilton Avenue resident Rochelle Dowling gave some consideration to opposing the project in front of the CPOA audience that former trustee Lamberti addressed two nights prior to the May 10 Board meeting. She listened to Lamberti’s thoughts on the school tax issue and asked the Board of Trustees last Thursday if they had any contact with the Board of Education of were made aware of the public hearings at Village Hall, or what a PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) would mean for taxes in Garden City. Dowling told the Board of Trustees and CPOA audience she will call the Superintendent of Schools (interim Superintendent Dr. Alan Groveman)

Final hearing set for new apartment development

and School Board President Heineman to see if they know of the next Village Board hearing on 555 Stewart Avenue coming up on June 7.

Number of students questioned

At the May 10 meeting she attempted to read from a prepared statement containing questions on the tax and school district implications for Garden City, saying the Board of Trustees and Zoning Change Committee should consider the influx of hundreds of children into the district, which would cost millions of dollars to finance (through taxes). Another resident who spoke at the meeting said Walsh’s claims of just 10 children coming from the development “is delusional” and commented that today there are 23 kids in each of her daughters’ classrooms at Locust School and Stewart School, “too many already,” so there were many factors impacting the district in play. Dowling noted that the project amends an earlier proposal (10 years ago) to build 25 townhouses at the site and now, to create a rental apartment complex with 150 units, the strong majority being two-bedroom units. Catherine O'Sullivan of 25 Raymond Court also addressed the Board on the same issue as the project will be visible from her quiet street and traffic will directly impact her neighborhood. “Ten-plus years ago when the developer first proposed for 35 townhomes it was a several-years’ process and the village docked it down to 27 in the approval; they felt 35 was too many to be accommodated at that property. What has changed in the dimensions of 555 Stewart Avenue now that you think 150 units would be a satisfactory project,” O’Sullivan said. Cynthia Brown was born and raised in Garden City. The Huntington Road resident said she is speaking for senior citizens of Garden City, as Lamberti notes that the village has a population of approximately 20% seniors, but she doesn’t see the potential the applicants claim for a new way of senior living within Garden City. “At one point Mr. Walsh said the apartment complex will be good for seniors in Garden City because people are going to downsize from their home -- not any seniors I know would. Seniors who downsize want to be near to convenience with stores, banks, hairdressers and other services. They want to be able to walk there or at least drive there carefully. I won’t even go near Roosevelt Field during the holiday season and a lot of my friends will not drive down Stewart Avenue at certain times now. We can pretty much say seniors will not rent in this proposed building and getting anywhere near this property, to Roosevelt Field or Stewart Avenue is taking your life in your See page 54

hands,” Brown said. She told the Board the 555 Stewart development will be rented to a majority of families with children. She says just 10 children coming from the 150 units is unrealistic. “I differ and I think we are going to have hundreds of children coming from this. It sounds as if the Board of Trustees has already made up their minds and if the project carries forward, they should at least pay for their fair share of school district taxes. I’ve never had children and I attended the school system, and I have paid my fair share of school taxes for over 50 years without a child there. I am really going to resent having more taxes to pay as a result of the project’s PILOT,” Brown said. At last Thursday’s meeting, Dowling made sure her fellow residents and the Board was considering the Simon Properties/OTO Development project approved with a Village Board approval and after thorough examination from the Zoning Change Review Committee in 2015 and 2016, which she said went through the Nassau County IDA and received a 20-year PILOT for tax abatement, including sales tax abatement and Mortgage Recording Tax exemption. “This will affect our school and village taxes so we are already burdened by this project. Incidentally the county executive, Laura Curran, has started an investigation into the IDA and I am sure this Board of Trustees knows the residents in Valley Stream sued their Town Board and the county IDA because of tax abatements – people are very active and aware of these issues,” Dowling stated. She added in questions on the village’s water and sewer capacities, the air quality, and abilities of the police and fire departments in Garden City being adequate and ready – as currently budgeted for -- to handle increased

population, large-scale buildings, and needs for services. Dowling wonders if the GCPD overtime, an area scrutinized during the annual budget process, would not further become a financial stress and whether or not police and fire response and service could eventually become ‘diluted’ all over Garden City with a large new development on a main road, and its hundreds of new residents. Dowling ran out of time by exceeding the four minutes allotted to speakers during public comments, although the 555 Stewart proposal was technically a continued part of a public hearing in front of the Board of Trustees. After a brief exchange last Thursday when she called Daughney “the worst mayor we have ever had” another resident got up and finished Dowling’s statement.

Quality of life issues

A 30-year resident of the village, Susan Larocca of Wellington Road said over the past five years the quality of life in Garden City has gone downhill fast. She told the Board last Thursday that while walking down Rockaway Avenue she sees litter everywhere. Larocca also says the outsourcing of the village landscaping and maintenance to contractors Con Kel Landscaping has created a negative for the appearance of the public areas of Garden City. “I think everything looks terrible. Garden City’s traffic is ridiculous and I am very frustrated with the way our town is being run,” she said. From her seat, Dowling added to that “and the way the Board is run.” Larocca continued Dowling’s statement: “I do not believe granting this developer a change in village zoning is in the best interests of the taxpaying residents of Garden City. We already know the developer will seek a 20-year tax abatement if he gets the zoning approval, which will increase his property’s value at our expense. I hope the Board of Trustees and especially our Zoning Board will act in

the residents’ best interests and not in the developer’s,” she said. Dowling and Larocca both asked for the statement to be made part of the Board’s meeting minutes of May 10, 2018, and several residents at the meeting clapped for her comments. Ming Zhang, also of Wellington Road, said if Walsh was so confident that the school enrollment (number of students) added to Garden City Schools would be so low, he should back up his words and presentations by signing an agreement with the Village of Garden City. One of Dowling’s main concerns and a constant point of contention with the proposal is a traffic study done by Cameron Engineering for the application, paid for by the developer (550 Stewart Acquisitions LLC). Dowling told the Board the indications that there will be minimal impact on traffic leads her to question ‘on what days and at what times the traffic study was performed.’ Many residents agreed with this particular point and they clapped as she stood at the podium. “I think the Board should insist for an independent traffic study to be done in the interest of your residents. The complex alone 343 parking spaces which will definitely impact traffic onto Stewart Avenue – we all know how bad that is already and even in the central section Stewart is so difficult,” she said. Dowling also asked if the long-form SEQRA review was underway, and Levin confirmed that it is. She also contested the change in the village’s zoning code as both the proposed site of the development at 555 Stewart Avenue, adjacent to Ring Road and the entrance to Roosevelt Field on the north side of Stewart Avenue, and the other large parcel owned by the same developer at 550 Stewart Avenue (south side of the road) are commercial areas. “The property is a vacant parking lot in a totally commercial zone near Roosevelt Field,” she said. The technical zoning was clarified by attorney A. Tom Levin,

who said the C-3 zoning was in effect at the location. He also made it clear he was not advocating on behalf of Walsh or the applicant but the zoning change request was slightly misstated by Dowling, who considers both sides of Stewart Avenue commercial. “The 555 Stewart property is not currently zoned C-3 it is zoned RT, and the 550 Stewart property on the south side is zoned C-3. I will leave it to Kevin Walsh to speak about traffic studies but I can assure Garden City residents the impacts of the proposal are being studied -- that is the reason why we are not done with the studies at this hearing, and we do not yet have a recommendation from our consultants (H2M) because the studies are still open,” Levin explained on May 10. Resident Bob Orosz spoke up at the prior public hearings on the 555 Stewart Avenue application and commented on the potential for the school tax contribution to be significantly less compared with the cost of educating children that will live in the 150-unit complex. “What are the benefits of this project, if any, for the residents of Garden City? What or how are we benefiting from this? Is the project in alignment with local planning? The silence here is deafening! If this project moves forward and proceeds to the IDA hearing on the application for a school district tax abatement, will members of the Board of Trustees be present at the IDA’s meeting to safeguard the interests of the community which they serve? The IDA meeting can make sure that the proposals put into them. An agreement can see restrictive clauses such as one prohibiting tax certiorari filing during the term of the PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes). Once you get into a PILOT if you do not have this in the agreement they can challenge their assessment and have their PILOT reduced during the course of the PILOT,” Orosz said.

GCHS’s Brooklyn Boy – Small Cast, Big Story – Outstanding Performances

The seven-member cast of Brooklyn Boy (standing) and crew (seated) put on three days of outstanding performances at Garden City High School. On March 8th, 9th, and 10th, Garden City High School presented Brooklyn Boy by Donald Margulies in the Inez Spiers Auditorium. The small cast show featured big performances by seven members of the Masquers. The play, performed on Broadway in 2005, follows the life of a soul-searching novelist, Eric Weiss, who has achieved hard-won critical success in the midst of several personal crises. The bittersweet play, expertly performed by Anthony Boccio (as author Eric Weiss), Liam Dougherty (Manny Weiss), William McLaughlin (Ira Zimmer), Alexis Grace Spera (Nina), Sarah Fetherston (Alison),

Kiera Foley (Melanie Fine), and Andrew Braun (Tyler Shaw), took the audience through the highs and lows of a few months in the author’s life. Congratulations to the outstanding cast and crew on a fantastic production of Brooklyn Boy! Many thanks to director Angela McLaughlin, producer Steve Mayo, technical director Amanda Marino, stage manager Annalise LoBiondo, and assistant stage manager Stephanie Knechtges. Many thanks also to the Garden City Teachers’ Association for hosting nearly 100 senior citizens for a free pre-show buffet dinner on Thursday, March 8th.

On March 8th, GCHS welcomed nearly 100 senior citizens for a free buffet dinner sponsored by the GC Teachers’ Association and a free dress rehearsal of Brooklyn Boy.

While in L.A. on a book tour and to discuss the film rights for his new novel, Alison (Sarah Fetherston), a fan of Eric’s work, offers support (and her own ideas for a movie) to the author.

In the midst of enjoying the success of his new novel Eric (Anthony Boccia) puts on a brave front while back in his old Brooklyn neighborhood. Meanwhile, his life is falling apart.

Back in his apartment, wife Nina (Alexis Grace Spera) wants a divorce and asks Eric (Anthony Boccia) to return his apartment keys.

Eric meets Melanie Fine (Kiera Foley) who wants to produce the film version of his novel, and the studio’s choice for the star, Tyler Shaw (Andrew Braun). Eric has grave doubts about Tyler as the lead character.

However, Tyler (Andrew Braun) feels he is the perfect actor to play Eric in the author’s semi-autobiographical novel.

Eric (Anthony Boccia) returns to Brooklyn when his father passes. Completely disillusioned, he repeatedly rejects Ira’s (William McLaughlin) attempts to renew their friendship and his invitation to renew his Jewish faith.

GCMS music groups earn honors at Music in the Park

Garden City Middle School’s Eighth Grade Band won “Best Overall Concert Band” award for the eighth time in the past ten years at the “Music in the Parks” competition; the Late Night Jazz Ensemble won the “Best Overall Jazz Ensemble” award for the tenth year in a row! BY JENNIFER IOVINO, TEACHER On Saturday, May 5th, the Garden City Middle School Eighth Grade Band and Late Night Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Ms. Iovino, competed at the “Music in the Parks” festival held at Fleetwood, PA. After their morning performances, the bands spent the rest of the day at Dorney Park in Allentown, PA. The festivities culminated with an

awards ceremony held inside the park. The ensembles performed for two adjudicators. Each group played a warm up piece and two adjudicated compositions. The Eighth Grade Band and Late Night Jazz Ensemble received the highest scores of the day with average scores of 96.5 and 93.75 respectively, earning 1st place- Superior Ratings. The Eighth Grade Band won the “Best

On April 26th, Mollie’s Fund supporters Victoria Siegel, RN, EdD and Anna George, RN, PhD, reached out to the students at Sacred Heart Academy to discuss the necessity of skin cancer prevention. Maggie Biggane and Molloy nursing school professors Siegel and George encouraged the girls to consistently use sunscreen UVA/UVB 30 and above, reapply often after swimming or sports, wear sun protective clothing and sunglasses, and try to avoid midday sun. They also stressed that indoor tanning is a carcinogen and should be avoided. Students were reminded that skin cancer does not discriminate; anyone with skin is susceptible. During the interactive discussions, the girls were able to check their own sun damage by

viewing their faces through UV light. Participants were asked to bring home the important lessons learned during the presentation to their families and friends to insure a sun happy summer. The girls received sunscreen samples donated by MD Solar Sciences and Mollie’s Fund self-check brochures. Adelphi University’s Dr. Jean Harris (Director of Health Studies), with the support of graduate student Desi Yordanova, spearheaded a skin cancer screening on May 8th at the University Center. Dermatologist Dr. Linda Susan Marcus (an Adelphi graduate) and a representative from Mariwalla Dermatology volunteered to conduct the screenings. Participants were counseled and given a form from

the American Academy of Dermatology which indicates necessary follow-up. Miss Yordanova conducted a pre and post analysis regarding skin cancer education. Participants received a “Have You Checked Your Skin Lately?” brochure, reusable bags, sunscreen samples from MD Solar Sciences, and

educational materials. A new study reveals an alarming rise over the past 40 years in melanoma among young people 18-39. Rates have climbed 800% among young women and 400% for young men. Mollie’s Fund knows skin screenings save lives and melanoma if caught early can be cured.

BY KAREN RUBIN TRAVEL FEATURES SYNDICATE, GOINGPLACESFARANDNEAR.COM Day 2: Medina to Fairport, 53 Miles  Immediately upon leaving Medina on Day 2 of Parks & Trails NY’s 8-day, 400-mile Cycle the Erie bike tour, which transverses New York State from Buffalo to Albany, we reach one of my favorite sections of the Erie Canalway: you ride over a concrete embankment that goes over

a waterfall which turns at a hard angle. You marvel at the construction as much as the view – the quaint Industrial-era town on one side, the dramatic forest and falls on the other. I stop at one of the many historic markers that are along the trail to learn about the special mortar they had to devise to accomplish this engineering feat. Just a little further is another remarkable feature of the Erie Canalway, the multi-use trail built mainly upon the original towpath

that makes biking so pleasant: the culvert. We leave our bikes on the trail and climb down an embankment to where this tunnel has been cut under the canal. Here you can really appreciate just how shallow the Erie Canal is - really just a bathtub. This is the only place on the 353-mile long canal where a road is built under the canal – and is quite a dramatic scene. This is also one of the more scenic parts of the

trail, at least to an urban Downstater like me: I am entranced by the sprawling farmland. I later learn that the Erie Canal does not just play a role in transportation (now more recreational than commercial), but in irrigation and flood control. We come into Albion, one of the charming canaltowns we travel through, so rich in history, where you see in the stunning architecture, and the opulence that the canal and the Industrial Revolution created – civic buildings, churches, banks. Because I had been here before, I knew to ride a short distance up Main Street from the canal where there are grand churches and a Town Hall on four corners. One of the churches, Pullman Memorial, has drop-dead magnificent Tiffany stained glass windows. I meet Bill Lattin, a church volunteer, and here is one time that my tardiness in leaving our campsite is rewarded: he wasn’t informed (as usual) that the 750 Cycle the Erie riders (a record number) were coming through this morning, so no one was at the church to open it up for visits, but as he was coming in to town, he saw us and opened the church just in time for my visit. George M. Pullman (1831-1897), who made his fortune manufacturing the luxurious railroad sleeper cars, was born in Albion. He had long before

moved away but remained close to people in his hometown and one of his friends, Charles A. Danolds, in 1890, prevailed upon him to donate $67,000 to build the church. Shanties were set up to house the stonecutters who managed to complete the building in less than a year’s time and the church was dedicated January 1895. Pullman’s daughter bequeathed $5,000 to maintain the exquisite stainless glass window of Jesus which was created in the Tiffany Studios in New York (look closely to see the Tiffany signature etched in a corner) – an early example of Art Nouveau. There is also a 1,248-pipe organ with pipes of gold leaf decorated by Tiffany Studios. Lattin tells me that there are only 30 people left in the congregation (Albion has a population of 5,000). (10 East Park St., Albion, NY 14411, 585-589-7181, PullmanMemorial. org). At Mile 21, we come to a small town of Holley, settled in 1812 and established on the original Erie Canal. Originally, this was an enormous and complicated loop that was straightened out when the canal, already hugely successful in its first several years, was expanded, putting the town a few blocks from the repositioned canal. The restored railroad depot (circa 1907) is now a museum. Holley was the center of a community of Italian immigrants who were brought over to work in Medina’s

sandstone quarry (the sign says, “affectionately called, Podunk”). As we ride into Brockport, where one of the State University of New York campuses is located as well as a prison, we are greeted with water, lemonade, and free stamped postcards and are encouraged to visit its charming Main Street. Brockport was where Cyrus McCormick contracted a factory to manufacture his reapers (there is a marker near the dock), seeing that the reapers could be shipped on the canal to the Midwest where he was getting orders from the large farms. We ride passed Adams Basin and Spencerport (recommended for our lunch stop), where a unique lift bridge carries Main Street over the canal. The part of the ride that goes into Rochester is some of the toughest – a series of up-and-down hills and dales, twists and turns, but from the perches we can see how the canal was sheer-cut into high rock faces. We ride over a bridge from which we can have a dramatic view of where the Erie Canal crosses the Oswego River. (I’ve done this by canalboat, a floating RV, which you can rent through MidLakes Navigation, Skaneateles. It is tremendous fun to go through the canal locks, under the lift bridges, tying up where whimsy takes you. 800-545-4318, info@midlakesnav.com, midlakesnav. com.)

Our rest stop is here at Rochester (mile 45.8) at a beautiful park along the Genesee Valley Waterway Center, where the organizers have arranged for us to go swimming, canoeing and kayaking, as well as for escorted bike rides to High Falls – a phenomenal sight – in downtown Rochester. REI has sponsored the stop, as well as bike repair. The Erie Canal, known as “The Mother of Cities,” turned tiny Rochesterville into an American “boom town” and today, is the third largest city in New York State, the brochure says. The canal first went through the center of the city, across an 800-foot aqueduct over the Genesee River - a major engineering achievement at the time. A second, sturdier version, built in 1842 to replace the original aqueduct, can be seen at the base of the Broad Street ridge. Eventually, as Rochester was built up and the canal interfered with traffic, the canal was rerouted to bypass the city. But as we leave Rochester, we see how the Erie Canal is still the “mother of communities”: along many sections of the Canalway, we see new housing developments that come right up to the trail. We now ride along the Great Embankment, yet another engineering marvel that is best appreciated by actually riding over it. At the evening

lecture, we had learned that they actually had to move a creek and flood a town in order to straighten out the canal, but this required engineering that had not yet been invented. “You can get a lot done when you don’t have to file environmental impact statements. They moved the canal, redirected the creek, to create the Great Embankment.” They put in a concrete floor and the re-done canal opened in May, 1912. But just a few months later, in September, there was a break at Bushnell’s Basin and it collapsed. Incredibly, they managed to keep navigation flowing by creating 70-foot high stilts to support a wooden trough while they rebuilt the Great Embankment from the bottom up (quite literally a concrete bathtub). There is a photo from May 1918 of the men standing in it when it reopened. This day’s route has us riding through a sequence of charming canaltowns – Spencerport, Brockport, Pittsford (one of my favorites), and finally, our destination for the night, Fairport (my favorite) - which are experiencing the most marvelous renaissance because of the repurposed Erie Canal: no longer a polluted cesspool of stinky commercial boats, foul water and even fouler boatmen, but pastoral scenes of non-intrusive recreational boats. Indeed, there are charming residential communities - among them, at Buffalo, Rochester, Pittsford and Fairport - that

The Tiffany stained glass windows at Pullman Memorial church in Albion © Karen Rubin/goingplacesfarandnear are sprouting up right along the canal. Some like in Rochester are a planned community of single-homes built around a recreation center, and others, like in Spencerport and Fairport, are townhomes that seem ideal for emptynesters (or people escaping summer heat in Florida). Pittsford and Fairport are the best examples of this renaissance. In Pittsford (where I tied up one summer

in the canalboat to overnight), you can see what was a grain silo repurposed as an office tower, and other structures turned into charming restaurants and boutiques. In Fairport, a few blocks up from the canal, there are vacant factories just waiting for some new enterprise. The lift bridges are themselves an attraction – Fairport’s lift bridge, which celebrated its centennial in 2014

is a particular attraction because it has no right angles. Our campsite tonight is at the Minerva DeLand School in Fairport, and the organizers have arranged for shuttle buses to take us back into Fairport to enjoy the lovely restaurants and shops. But I don’t want to miss See page D5

What’s so very special about family names BY CLAIRE LYNCH As a child growing up in Rockville Centre I knew that certain people were named after other people. I knew that these were very important names. My second brother was named after my uncle, after my mother’s brother, who had been named after his father in Brooklyn. My sister, Michelle, was named after a favorite cousin of my father’s. My oldest brother was named after my father. My third brother was named after our paternal grandfather also in Brooklyn. I could go on and on about who is named after whom but you get the idea. I like the tradition of keeping family names and passing them from one generation to another. I like looking at family trees and figuring out who was descended from and related to whom. As a kid, my first thought in looking at our big extended family tree was that it looked like a big old puzzle. I wanted to figure out what all of the pieces were or more accurately, I wanted to see how

the many different pieces fit together. Never one to back away from a challenge, I examined each name and peppered my mom and dad with questions about who they were, if I had ever met them, where they lived, what kind of jobs they had, if they had children or grandchildren, etc. I wanted to know as much as I could so I pretty much kept at it until I understood as much as I could about our family tree. Both of my parents knew a lot about their ancestors but we did come across some individuals who they didn’t know that much about - or they knew that their stories were serious. I realized pretty early on that each of these individuals had a story. When I got to be a certain age, around nine, they told me whatever they knew about the person. Before that they would just kind of breeze over the name. They wouldn’t give specific details. I guess at that point they figured that I was too young to know all about certain details.

One of the names that kept coming up was Claire. On the family tree, Claire was listed as my maternal grandparents’ oldest child. I had always thought that my mom was their oldest child but one day I put my index finger on the family tree and asked, “Who’s that?” My mom finally told me the story about Claire which was this. My grandmother wanted to be “modern” around 1915 and have her children in the hospital in Brooklyn. My Grandma Katie, a Hunter College graduate and elementary school teacher before she was married, always liked to think of herself as a progressive thinker. She always wanted to embrace the world and try new things. At that time most women had their children at home. She arranged to be admitted to the hospital for her first child and Claire was born. A few days later, however, Claire died in the hospital. They said that the cause of death was pneumonia. My grandparents were heartbroken, of course, and they went home to try and

resume their lives. My grandfather, who owned his own business as a stockbroker on Wall Street, kept busy by throwing himself into his work. My grandmother told her husband that any other children she had would be born at home. The next year Grandma Katie found out that she was going to have a baby. Low and behold, she ended up having twins. A few weeks ahead of time she arranged to have the doctor and nurse come to her brownstone home on Carroll Street in Brooklyn and up on the second floor in her bedroom, twin girls were born. My mom was the first baby to arrive and about eight minutes later my Aunt Laura was born. They were identical, really identical, and throughout their lives many people had trouble telling them apart. My grandmother had two other children, a boy and a girl, who were also born on the second floor in her bedroom See page D6

Riding the Social Security Gravy Train BY TOM MARGENAU

Before I get to today’s question, I must give some background information on the topic at hand -- and that is the so-called maximizing strategy that many people mistakenly call “file and suspend.” What they usually mean is the strategy called “file and restrict.” And it’s not just a matter of semantics. I will explain. A Social Security law passed in the 1990s that allowed working seniors to claim full benefits at age 66 (the prior age was 72) included some totally unintended provisions that let seniors play around with, or maximize their benefits. One of those provisions came to be called “file and suspend.” This strategy was usually employed by a husband who wanted to wait until age 70 to claim benefits and get a 32 percent delayed retirement credit added to his Social Security check. But he could file for benefits at 66 and immediately suspend his own benefits, while allowing his wife to take spousal benefits on his record when she came of age. This strategy was actually eliminated a couple years ago. But the term “file and suspend” lives on -- mostly on the internet. People still ask me if they can “file and suspend.” Again, they can’t. But what they can do is employ a somewhat related strategy called “file and restrict.” That tactic allows one member of a married couple to claim dependent husband’s or wife’s benefits on the other spouse’s record at age 66 while letting his or her own retirement benefits grow -- usually until age 70. File and restrict is also pegged for elimination. But it’s still good for another couple years. Anyone turning 66 before January 2, 2020 can employ that strategy. And let me point out why those strategies are indeed loopholes in the law that needed to be closed. A basic tenet of the Social Security program is that benefits are only paid to a spouse if that husband or wife was financially dependent on the primary-earning spouse. After all, in the Social Security scheme of things, spousal benefits fall under the broad category of “dependent” benefits. With the loopholes in place, spousal benefits were being paid to husbands and wives who had their own jobs and who had their own pensions and Social Security benefits. They simply did not meet the definition of a “dependent” according to the law. Yet millions of such nondependent seniors were able to jump through the loophole and claim spousal benefits. Eliminating those loopholes is taking the Social Security system back to where it belongs. So with that background, let’s get to today’s question. And in a twist to the normal scenario, we are hearing from a woman who filed and suspended to allow her husband to claim spousal ben-

efits on her record. Q: Before they changed the law, I filed and suspended when I turned 66 in March 2016. Then my husband filed for spousal benefits on my record. He turned 70 last month and filed for his own retirement benefits. While we were in the Social Security office, the clerk said that I could now file for spousal benefits on my husband’s record. So I did that. But then I got a phone call from another Social Security rep who told me that I could not file for spousal benefits! So who is right -- the local clerk or the representative on the phone? A: The person on the phone is right. You can NOT file for spousal benefits because you have already technically filed for your own retirement benefits -- even though you suspended them. In case some of my readers are still confused, let me explain what you and your husband are doing. You wanted to delay starting your own retirement benefits until you turn 70 in order to get the 32 percent delayed retirement bonus added to your monthly benefits. But because you turned 66 before they changed the rules, you were able to use the “file and suspend” loophole. So you filed for your retirement benefits, and then immediately suspended them in order to let your husband use the file and restrict loophole. In other words, he claimed spousal benefits on your record while he delays his own retirement benefits until age 70. That means he is currently getting an amount equal to 50 percent of your full retirement rate, with plans to switch to 132 percent of his retirement benefit at age 70. He is now about to turn 70 and make that switch. And an obviously inexperienced clerk in your local Social Security office suggested that you turn around and file for spousal benefits on your husband’s retirement record. Or to put that in Social Security maximizing lingo, he thought you could now file and restrict. But you can’t file and restrict because you have already filed and suspended. I hope that is making sense to you. If not, here is another way you can look at it. You and your husband have already jumped through two big loopholes in Social Security law. You were able to file for your own benefits, suspend those benefits for no other reason than to let your nondependent husband draw a spousal check for four years off your account. Now he will be getting a delayed benefit credit of 32 percent added to his retirement check for the rest of his life, even though he really didn’t delay taking Social Security (because he’s been getting those benefits on your record since 2014), And soon you will also be able to receive your own delayed retirement credits even though you technically filed for benefits when

you were 66. So I suggest you not look a gift horse in the mouth and instead thank your lucky stars that you and your husband were born at just the right time to allow you to milk the Social Security system out of all these unintended benefits. And for those other seniors out there reading this column who either signed up for Social Security benefits before those maximizing loopholes became all the rage, or who will reach Social Security eligibility age after all the

loopholes are closed, I hope you don’t think you are being cheated out of anything. You are or will be getting the Social Security benefits the law always intended that you receive. It’s these lucky few baby boomers born in the maximizing window who got a free ride on the Social Security gravy train! If you have a Social Security question, Tom Margenau has the answer.

W R I T E R’S C O R N E R

What’s so very special about family names C ontinued from page D3 in Brooklyn attended by professionals. To simplify things all around, the family always said that my mom was the oldest of their children but those of us who were relatives knew that there was more to that story. I accepted my mother’s explanation about what had happened to baby Claire at face value. At first. Later on, when I had the chance to think over the facts of the story, I wondered if that was the whole story. Could there have been another explanation? Could there have been more to the story? I didn’t know and I’ll never know. I questioned it but now I accept their explanation. Too many years have gone by so we will never know any further details. As far as everyone is

concerned it’s ancient history. Many family stories have gone to the grave with my ancestors. In other instances, people sitting around talking to each other would tell the stories about what happened. They would banter back and forth about all different subjects and all different people and if I was in earshot I would stop and listen to what they were talking about. Sometimes it was hard trying to keep track of who they were talking about at the time but basically, I took it all in. In the case of baby Claire, it’s a sad story, a heartbreak that I know in a way my grandmother never really got over. She never brought up the subject but if asked Grandma Katie would answer factually. That was it. She never got into the emotion of it. My mother always said that she never

really talked about it but I’m sure that it always stayed in the back of her mind. That baby was always with her. In terms of my being named after a family member, I can respond to having Claire’s name in one of three ways. First, that I was named after a relative who died as just an infant. If I think of it in the second way, it makes me feel pretty important because I know how good my relatives feel about having their family names passed down to a new generation. It carries on their legacy. When I think about it in the third way, it makes me feel pretty good. My parents had chosen a pretty name, Claire, one that they really liked. If I think of it in the first way, it’s kind of dark. That story about baby Claire is a very serious one. I certainly don’t underestimate the emotion of what happened. On most days I think of being named Claire in the second and third ways. I alternate between cherishing a beloved family name and just enjoying having a solid, pretty name which happens to be a Latin word meaning “clear, bright.” One day when I was about 14 years old my mother and I were sitting in the kitchen having lunch and it seemed like a good time to ask her about some of my family roots – about some of our family’s history. She knew some things about my father’s side of the family and obviously she knew more about her side of the family. I learned a lot about my family roots just by sitting around talking to my mom and other relatives, too. Looking back, those conversations were the ones I cherish to this day - the times we would be sitting around relaxing and my mother would tell me things that her mother had told her that not too many people knew about - relatives’ weaknesses, their faults, their failures and their indecision. It gave me an insight into people I wouldn’t otherwise have known about - and it helped me to understand people in general. I asked my mother if my grandmother had ever asked her why she had named me Claire. She said that her mother had never asked her that question. That took me by surprise because I kind of thought that Grandma Katie would have had questions about that. So at first I thought it was a bit strange then I had to stop myself and remember three key things. My mother had six children, first three boys then three girls. I am #5 of the 6 kids. When Grandma Katie visited us on Long Island things were pretty hectic with six kids in my household. And

when we visited her in Brooklyn, we had some good visits but things we also very hectic with so many people around. Additionally, I had to remember that my grandmother had five other grandchildren. The six of us Lynch kids weren’t her only grandchildren. Second, my grandmother believed in the stiff upper lip. No matter what emotions she might have been feeling she would keep a tight hold on them. Always act properly was her motto. She believed in showing courage in the face of pain or adversity. When life deals you a bad hand, pick yourself up and carry on. Don’t dwell on bad things. Move ahead and focus on the positive. That’s how she was and it worked for her. Grandma Katie wasn’t one to cry over spilled milk. I’m sure that she grieved over baby Claire for a while, there’s no doubt about that, but then she got up and carried on with life. Third, I may be the inquisitive type but not everyone questions things from every angle. Not everyone overanalyzes things. Not everyone asks why this person was named after so and so. Once early on in high school we students were asked by our English teacher to write about where we were from. Our teacher said that we could write about our ancestors, for example, if we were from Ireland, England, France, etc., if they had come to America through Ellis Island, or about someone we may have been named after. That topic was right up my alley. I wrote a lot about baby Claire and about some of the facts and feelings that I mentioned in the paragraphs above. I found myself writing and writing and I actually had to go back and pare things down. I knew that it would be too much for my high school assignment to go rambling on. We had a word limit to adhere to and somehow I stuck to it but I know that I could have gone on and on about the various namesakes in my family and in particular, who I was named after. My teacher gave me a good grade in that paper, probably because I had checked several facts with my parents before I wrote it - and probably because I had poured my whole heart into writing it. The whole topic of family trees and family genealogy is very interesting. I guess the reason is that it answers a lot of questions we have about who we are, about where we came from and probably the most important question, what is it that makes us tick. I’ve done my research over the years and discovered where I am from. What does your name reveal about you?

C ontinued from page D5 There is an unexpected treat at Newark, where the community has set up a welcome table for us at the canal park. You walk down to the canalside walkway (excellent rest facilities) and there are the most magnificent murals painted on the base of the bridge that tell the story of life for canalers on the Erie Canal with reflections on the Civil War era, some of which can only be fully appreciated if you come by boat. Peppermint Museum On my first Cycle the Erie ride, because I was in a hurry to get ahead of the rain (it didn’t work), I missed the Peppermint Museum in Lyons, where a clever food scientist (not sure that is what he was known as), H.G. Hotchkiss, revolutionized the use of peppermint oil, so I was intent to visit this time. Once again, this is a tiny site that you might miss except if you were looking for it, and it proves fascinating in ways you never expected. The Erie Canal is what brought Hiram Hotchkiss to Lyons in 1841. Indeed, there was an oversupply of peppermint oil, an herb that was grown extensively in fields around Lyons. But because of the Erie Canal, Hotchkiss had the idea to export the peppermint oil to Europe. Europe already had its own peppermint oil and his product was at first met with skepticism. But Hotchkiss perfected the process and his product won medals. The huge success of H.G. Hotchkiss Company made Lyons, New York, the “Peppermint Capital of the World” for many years. Indeed, at one time, Hotchkiss was responsible for half the annual production of  peppermint  oil in the United States. Canallers would say they could tell when they were approaching the village by the smell. Until Hotchkiss, peppermint oil was used for medicinal purposes and to make tea. But Hotchkiss expanded its use – Beech-Nut (which has a factory in Canajoharie, another town where we will stay) first started using peppermint in candy and gum. Hotchkiss, brilliant at branding and packaging in gorgeous blue glass bottles manufactured at the Clyde Glassworks (another town we visit), became a millionaire. He had a 42-room home a few blocks up the hill, which a couple from New York City purchased. We get to visit Hotchkiss’ laboratory and warehouse; the parlor offers an exhibit honoring suffragettes. Indeed, we learn that Lissat Hotchkiss Parshall (1840-1913),one of Hotchkiss’ seven daughters, was a suffragette and Anne Hotchkiss (1914-2010),was the company’s fourth president (1963-1984), and one of the first women to become

president of a company. This is most fitting because we will wind up this day in Seneca Falls, the birthplace of Women’s Rights. Gradually, though, Lyons farmers started planting apples and switched to dairy production; and the peppermint factory closed in 1990. The town just about forgot about its peppermint past and locals didn’t know what the building was until the Lyons Heritage Society reopened it as a museum. (The Peppermint Museum, an absolute jewel, is open by appointment only; you can arrange a tour by calling Patty Alena at the Lyons Heritage Society, 315-946-4596; 95 Water Street, Lyons, NY 14489, www. lyonsheritagesociety.com). I ride up to the Lyons town square and get some feel of the community before continuing on the trail. We have our afternoon rest stop in  Clyde  (the townspeople have gone all out on the Village Green with music and ice cream for us) and then go off the Canalway trail onto country roads through Amish Country (who knew there was an Amish country in New York State?), some of the prettiest farmland anywhere. On my last visit, it started pouring immediately as we left  Clyde, and I was unable to capture these exquisite scenes that evoke Currier & Ives, in photos. This time, I am lucky because it is sunny and some of the farmers are out. I pass the barn where last time we took shelter from lightening. Our 51-mile ride ends Day 3 of our 8-day, 400-mile Cycle the Erie biketour at another stunning school campus, Mynderse Academy in Seneca Falls. Because I want to have as much time as possible in Seneca Falls, where the Women’s Rights National Park and other sites are staying open until 8 pm for us, I drop my things in the school gymnasium for “indoor camping,” (the school even has a TV where we get to watch the All-Stars baseball game at night) and rush out to the school bus which is shuttling us into town. Tonight is one of the two during our eight-day trip where we are on our own for dinner, but I occupy my time touring the attractions dedicated to Women’s Suffrage (New York State is making a big deal of the centennial of the 19th Amendment that is coming in 2020) and exploring Seneca Falls. The 20th Annual Cycle the Erie Canal ride is scheduled July 8 – 15, 2018 (www.ptny.org/canaltour). In the meantime, you can cycle the trail on your own - detailed info and interactive map is at the ptny.org site (www.ptny. org/bikecanal), including suggested lodgings. For more information on  Cycle the Erie Canal, contact Parks & Trails New York at 518-434-1583 or

Preschoolers root for the home teams on Sports Shirt Day The toddler, nursery, and pre-k students at Little Sprouts Preschool in neighboring New Hyde Park all had a good time celebrating the start of the spring sports season recently when they wore their favorite teams to school. Classrooms were filled with the jerseys, hats, and logos of the New York Mets, Yankees, Knicks, Nets, Giants, Jets, Rangers, Islanders, and even some local baseball and soccer teams. The children enjoyed some special activities, stories, games and sports-related snacks as they chanted for their favorite teams. Despite a few obvious team rival-

ries, teachers and some parents joined in the fun as well! Little Sprouts Preschool is a ministry of the Christ Lutheran Church and has provided quality early childhood education for nearly two decades. Registration is ongoing for the 2018-19 school year, and there is also limited space remaining in the school’s 7-session summer recreation program which runs from June 19th to August 2nd. To schedule a tour or to get more information, please call 516-746-4889 or visit www.christchurchnhp.org.

Chaminade JV tennis team has strong Garden City presence

The JV tennis squad at nearby Chaminade High School has a strong GC presence this year. GC residents Nick Wende (sophomore), his brother Matt Wende (freshman, Massimo Saponieri (sophomore), and CJ Casano (freshman) all played on Chamiande’s JV Tennis team this spring, coached by GC resident, Chaminade alum, and GC pool lifeguard Andrew Salecker, who is admired by all the players for his consistent, positive support, according to the boys. Nick Wende won the JV singles championship of Long Island Catholic schools, beating top players from St. Anthony’s and St. Dominics, at the competitive tournament in Huntington this month. (Nassau-Suffolk Catholic High School Athletic Association Novice Tournament). The Chaminade team also won the overall tournament. All of the GC players on the Chaminade team honed their tennis

skills in programs run by the Recreation Department. Colleen Wende said her sons learned everything they know about tennis at weekly classes at the GC pool during summer and winters, since they were about 6 years old. In recent years they have also played for the GC tennis team, which meets on weekends from November-April, coached by Rick Bates and Dennis Mah, in a program organized by Sue Tarzian. Mrs. Wende described the tennis program as another jewel in the Recreation Department’s crown, but added that many residents don’t seem to know GC has a tennis team for kids. “ I’m grateful to the tennis program for teaching my sons such a wonderful sport they can enjoy their whole lives.. Plus the coaches are top-notch, great role models for the kids”, she said. The Chaminade JV squad finished their season with a record of 3-3 (3 wins, 3 losses and 1 rain out).

Garden City Middle School crowns 2018 Badminton Champions “Every April, our unit of study in physical education classes at Garden City Middle School is badminton,” said teacher Wendy Logue-Boyd. “Students in those classes get the opportunity to choose their partner and compete in a round robin and double elimination tournament within their class period. There were 49 teams vying for the annual championship. Each class period had

a champion, and on May 4th, the school held an in-school field trip where the period champions competed for the title. Along with the players, there were scorekeepers, lines judges, coaches, PA announcers, and birdie boys. This year’s champions were seventh-graders Kevin Roberti and David Debusschere – congratulations!”
