Environmental program connects congregations

HAPPY NEW YEAR

BY GARY SIMEONE

The children from Faith Nursery School, on Jackson Avenue in Syosset, were taught about Chinese New Year from Miss Ivy, a parishioner of Faith Lutheran Church. Each child went home with a red envelope, candy, and a cookie in celebration of the Year of the Dog.

It was a crowded house at the Jericho Jewish Center on Wednesday, February 7th as students from four different congregations came together for an event on Judaism and the environment. The students from area high schools, including, Jericho, Syosset and Plainview, participated in discussions related to the environment and took part in handson projects. Joan Muss, a board member from the Jewish National Fund, talked about water conservation in Israel and how people are coping in the midst of a severe drought. “The presentation about Israel and the environment really brought home about how much we take water for granted and how even when we have a drought, by conserving our water consumption we can ensure

that there is not only enough water for us but for our neighbors,” said Rabbi Ben Herman, of the Jericho Jewish Center. The presentation was also in accordance with Tu Bishvat, which means the “birthday of the trees” in Judaism. Tu Bishvat was officially celebrated on January 30th and 31st, with a minor festival held in Israel. Students filled out Post-It notes with the connection they learned about the importance of trees and their relationship to the environment. In the hands-on portion of the event, students also helped to plant terrariums so they could take them home wirth them or donate them to nearby senior centers. A special dessert was also offered to all those who attended, which was made out of fruits from the trees.

Syosset High School Introduction to Programming teacher John Chae displays the home screen of the SHS Mobile app along with his students Jeremy Weiss (left) and Ryan Lefkowitz, who developed the app under his tutelage.

Using the knowledge they acquired in John Chae’s Introduction to Programming class, two Syosset High School students completed an Independent Study project by developing a mobile app to meet the needs of nearly every student at the school. Students Ryan Lefkowitz and Jeremy Weiss are the proud developers of the app SHS Mobile, which is making life at Syosset High School a little easier to navigate for many. After taking input from teachers and students and mirroring a component from Chae’s own grade calculator app, Ryan and Jeremy incorporated three significant tools into their app. One is a daily notification that determines whether it is a red day or a white day at the high school, so that students know the class schedule for the day. This is particularly useful following vacation days and snow days. Another tool provides students with the period/bell schedule to keep track of the day’s classes and ensure they arrive on time. The tool also accounts for delayed openings and adjusts the

period schedule accordingly. “We wanted to create an app that would help other students in our school,” said Jeremy. “This is particularly helpful to freshmen and sophomores who are still learning their way around the school.” The third tool is a grade calculator, which enables every student to factor together their quarter grades, midterm and final exam grades to determine their final overall grade in any given course. The program automatically takes into account the percentage of each component to arrive at the final course grade for students in advance of the school’s Infinite Campus program. SHS Mobile is free and available to Android and iPhone users. While Jeremy and Ryan are not the first of Chae’s students to have designed an app, and they have yet to conduct analytical research to determine exactly how many people are using it, every Syosset High School student can benefit from having SHS Mobile on his or her device.

Congratulations to the Syosset High School Science Olympiad team “Scioly” for bringing home the gold at a recent competition. At the Nassau East Regional competition held at Wantagh High School, three different Scioly teams placed first, fourth, and eleventh among the 43 teams competing. Team A won an amazing 20 medals, Team B won 14 medals, and Team C won 11 medals. Overall, Scioly medaled in 20 of 22 events. This marks the first time that every Syosset build event received medals in regional competition. The build events comprise of building model size helicopters, wooden towers, cars, and hovercrafts among other things. Prior to regionals, the team scored successful victories at the Fayetteville Manlius High School invitational tournament, held in Manlius, New York. The same three Scioly teams combined to win 10 first-place medals, 7 second-place medals, and seven third-place medals. Overall, the three teams fin-

ished first-, fourth-, and sixth-place, dethroning the 10-year champion host school in the process. In January Scioly won an additional three medals at the highly competitive Fairfax High School Invitational in Fairfax, Virginia. Science Olympiads provide challenges in various STEM disciplines, exposing students to practicing scientists and career choices, as well as dynamic content experiences. Scioly is one of Syosset High School’s largest extracurricular group, with approximately 75 members. “Although we are well known for our academic achievements, this club has proven to be so much more than just an assembly of very bright young minds. Rather, it is a family,” said Scioly coach/adviser Mildred Castañeda, now in her second year with Scioly. “I feel as though we have developed an incredible bond with each other. Last school year, we made so many memories that I am even more excited about what is taking place this year.”

THE VIEW FROM HERE

Where are the Deficit Hawks? BY BOB MORGAN, JR. One of the more notable political changes lately has been the decline of the deficit hawks. This is probably not a good thing. When Barack Obama became president in 2009, a strong opposition movement called the Tea Party arose among conservatives and Republicans. While favoring lower taxes, Tea Party members were also strong deficit hawks, strongly opposing high spending and mounting federal debt. In many ways the Tea Party, for all its broad appeal and huge rallies and despite playing a major role in the Republican Congressional gains in 2010 and 2014, was largely unsuccessful in forcing meaningful change in the budget process. Under President Obama, the national debt approximately doubled to $20 trillion. To use one example, in fiscal year 2012, well into Mr. Obama’s first term, the annual deficit added $1.087 trillion to the debt. Only after that year did a “sequestration” initiative in Congress bring down the debt a little. Somewhat fortunately for President Obama, the low interest rate environment created by Federal Reserve Bank policy muted the short-term effect of the debt since the cost of servicing the debt remained artificially low. Nevertheless, during President Obama’s term, the deficit hawk movement championed by the Tea Party was strong and effective and reflected in the political debate. National Republicans were not hesitant to make the debt and deficit a major campaign issue. For example, Paul Ryan, when he ran for vice president in 2012, railed against a “red tidal wave” of debt. Enter the Trump Administration. After months of gridlock, the White House managed to persuade Congress to enact a major tax reform bill that the Congressional Budget Office estimated would cost about $1.4 trillion over ten years based on its assumptions. Democrats accused Republicans of fiscal irresponsibility, but their credibility was pretty low in light of the explosive deficit growth during President Obama’s term. There was at least a reasonable case that attempting to use tax cuts in combination with lower regulation might succeed in jumpstarting

the economy, with new tax revenues substantially offsetting deficit increases. However, the deficits run up in the bipartisan budget bill passed by Congress last week are much less defensible. The budget bill increased discretionary funding caps by $300 billion over two years, largely gutting the sequestration process, with this year’s appropriations slated to rise by 13 percent. The political deal was that Democrats received increased domestic spending while Republicans got increased military outlays. The budget bill did have some allure beyond politically attractive spending. Its two year term was an improvement over the stopgap short term continuing resolutions previously passed to keep the federal government in business. It also avoided another potential shutdown over immigration issues. And, as now Speaker Paul Ryan points out, any serious fix on spending may have to tackle entitlements and not just discretionary spending. However, the budget bill has major negative ramifications as it will ramp up the annual deficit significantly, quite possibly to the trillion dollar level. With the Fed poised now poised to raise interest rates, this will ratchet up the cost of interest on the national debt. The obvious question with the budget bill is where the successors of the Tea Party and other deficit hawks have gone. The bill actually got through Congress rather easily. It passed 71-28 in the Senate, over a one-man protest by Senator Rand Paul (“When Republicans are in power, there is no conservative party”). Indeed, much of the opposition came from Democrats angered over immigration rather than by deficit hawks. Congress will soon be considering an infrastructure proposal. While there is something to be said for a targeted rebuilding proposal, with considerable participation by state and local governments, it is not hard to imagine this law as a major vehicle for pork barrel spending. Indeed, if ever there were a bill that needs some scrutiny from deficit hawks, this is it. But are there still enough of them to matter?

Motion and Machines at Berry Hill School BY GINA JAMES

The fourth-grade students at Berry Hill enjoyed a special assembly presented by the Franklin Institute. Motion and Machines was an interactive show which discussed the basic physics of motion as well as simple machines.  The

show used rubber balls, bricks, and wooden blocks to teach Newton’s Law of Motion. Students saw the laws of action in a lever, pulley and a student driven hover car.   This assembly was planned by the Berry Hill PTA’s Cultural Art Committee Chairs Jamie Levine and Jennifer Schaefer.

The host of the assembly showed the students a live example of a lever.

The finale of the show involved a student volunteer driving a hover car.

4th graders enjoyed the Motion and Machines show.

Every year Berry Hill PTA gifts each classroom with a box of activities to keep them entertained during indoor recess for the winter months. These boxes are called PRIDE Boxes and are part of the character education program sponsored by the PTA.    PRIDE is an acronym for Patience, Respect, Integrity, Dignity and Empathy.    The PRIDE program is a joint effort by the school staff and the PTA geared to teach the children these important principles. This year the PTA decid-

Indoor recess gets warmer at Berry Hill ed to give all classes a chance to request specific games and activities by creating a “Wish List.” The PTA sent all the wish lists to parents and asked them to help participate in the making of the PRIDE boxes.  Students were extremely creative and requested board games, card games, bracelet making kits and tabletop pool and air hockey tables.  The PTA donated many of these items but it was extra special to have many Berry Hill families lend a hand.

The PTA worked hard to assemble the PRIDE Boxes.

Mrs. Gruhaus was happy to show her class their box which was overflowing with items from their Wish List. Mrs. Zaffino’s kindergarten class couldn’t wait to open their box.

Students were so excited to see the boxes brought to school.

Berry Hill alumnus Joey Davis stopped by to deliver a box to his former teacher, Mrs. DeAngelo.

New York Times Travel Show: Despite Trump Policy, Americans CAN Travel to Cuba! BY KAREN RUBIN

After President Obama threw down barriers for Americans to travel to Cuba, the island nation saw a surge in tourism – US airlines launched new flights, cruiselines set up calls, and hotel companies were looking to build. Then the Trump Administration reversed the Obama policy, creating confusion about Americans’ ability to travel, which even travel professionals say they are having a hard time deciphering. “Tourist travel to Cuba remains prohibited. You must obtain a license from the Department of Treasury or your travel must fall into one of 12 categories of authorized travel,” a spokesman for the US Department of State said. “Travel to Cuba is regulated by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Anyone located in the United States, regardless of citizenship and nationality, must comply with these regulations. Individuals seeking to travel to Cuba are not required to obtain licenses from OFAC if their travel is covered by a general license. If travel is not covered by a general license, you must seek OFAC authorization in the form of a specific license. Travelers who fail to comply with regulations may face penalties and criminal prosecution.” See the Department of Treasury

Natural Habitat Adventures offers licensed tours to Cuba (photo supplied by NatHab.com) webpage; also OFAC’s FAQl: https://www.treasury.gov/ resource-center/sanctions/ Programs/Documents/cuba_faqs_ new.pdf The Department of State also has a travel advisory on Cuba  at its travel.state.gov site. “Reconsider

travel to Cuba due to health attacks directed at U.S. Embassy Havana employees.” The change in policy specifically impacts independent travelers’ ability to visit under a broad People to People policy without joining some kind of licensed group – which

those who have been advocating for opening travel to Cuba for decades say is not a surmountable problem. Meanwhile, cruise lines like Norwegian are still coming in and even benefiting from the restrictions. See page D2

New York Times Travel Show: Despite Trump Policy, Americans CAN Travel to Cuba! Continued from page D1

“All of our ships are covered under People to People provisions,” Andy Stuart, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line, said at the New York Times Travel Show industry panel. “The fact we are still going, added capacity, tells the story that this is fantastic way to visit, There is still pent-up demand. We have doubled capacity –we have the two largest ships that can sail into Havana harbor. We are excited about it. We have to get the word out that Americans can still go to Cuba.” But USA-Cuba travel professionals argue that the Trump policy is only a

blip that can easily be overcome by anyone who is interested in visiting. “Yes You Can Still Go to Cuba!” Despite Trump’s hard-line speech to shut down relations with Cuba last June in Miami, Americans can still travel to Cuba. “All types of purposeful travel authorized by the Obama Administration remain legal,” stated John McAuliff, Executive Director & Founder of the Fund for Reconciliation and Development (www.ffrd.org). Travel with groups and on cruises are unaffected by the policy. “Even hotel restrictions have a legal work-around,” he maintains. Independent travel by individuals, families and friends is also largely unchanged but now falls under the re-written license category of “Support for the Cuban People” instead of “People to People.” The withdrawal of 60 percent of US diplomats in October was connected to a still unexplained medical problem that affected only US and Canadian diplomats. “It is totally unknown what happened and who is responsible, but the goal of cooling relations succeeded.” On the other hand, Canada did not withdraw its diplomats. “There has not been a single confirmed case of similar health symptoms from the 4 million visitors to Cuba last year, including 650,000 Americans. No other country has issued any kind of health advisory. Indeed, the International Tourism Fair in Madrid recently judged Cuba “Safest Destination in the World.”

Tour operators and cruiselines are still offering programs to Cuba. Abercrombie & Kent is offering a people-to-people program with A&K USA Chairman Phil Otterson, featuring 7 nights aboard boutique sailing yacht ‘Le Ponant’. (photo supplied by Abercrombie & Kent)

The State Department, under internal rules, issued a Travel Warning because with the reduced staff, it could not provide the normal level of citizen services. Those who want to travel to Cuba on their own can. Here are tips: Book a ticket nonstop on JetBlue from JFK or United from Newark (about $300). Select “Support for the Cuban People” as the type of travel you are undertaking. Use AirBnB to reserve a room or an apartment (known as casa particular) from a private owner. You can dine in a private restaurant (paladar). You can buy handicrafts and other items from self-employed shop keepers (cuenta propistas). (The Trump Administration was hysterical about Americans traveling to Cuba because tourism dollars, they say, support the military state and maintain the Communist regime.) You can hire a guide privately, such as Enrique Nunez, an art historian, singer-songwriter, artistic director and ‘lecturer on wheels” who drives you around in an old Soviet Lada (“The Car of the Cuban Survivor”; iroko011@ gmail.com.) As much as possible, use private taxis, which are also available for travel between cities. “Whatever you do, wherever you go, be intentional and responsible that your goal is ‘a full-time schedule of activities that enhance contact with the Cuban people…and that result in meaningful interactions with individuals in Cuba’.”

(What that means is up to you.) Keep a journal or list of your “meaningful interactions” for five years. Some two dozen travel entities were at the New York Times Travel Show with services related to Cuba travel, including Cuba/US People to People Partnership, Fund for Reconciliation & Development; Cuban Guru, LLC; Intrepid Travel; Access Trips Culinary Tours; Celestyal Cruises; New York Times Journeys; REI Adventures; Norwegian Cruise Line/Crown Cruise Vacations; International Expeditions; Intrepid Travel; Diving Unlimited International; smarTours; Dream Yacht Charter; Wild Frontiers; African Ventures.

New York Times Travel Show: American Travelers Resilient In Face of Crises BY KAREN RUBIN Travel professionals at the New York Times Travel Show had somewhat mixed feelings to the US State Department’s new travel advisory and alert system  (travel.state.gov) because of the newness and how consumers are processing the information. Some said they appreciated the greater specificity, but others felt that destinations were unfairly tarnished. But they observed with some amazement at the resilience of American travelers to return to destinations that have had some crisis like a natural disaster or terror attack. “When we had those [terror attacks] in London last summer, within 48 hours we were back to normal booking patterns,” said Guy Young, global brand engagement officer of The Travel Corporation. Jennifer Tombaugh, president of Tauck Tours, said the tour operator used to plan for up to 12 months for tourism to recover to an area that suffered from some kind of travel disruptor. Now, it only takes three months for a rebound. “We see, whether it’s been a natural disaster or a terrorism event or just overall economic disruption that all of our guests are rebounding much, much

more quickly than they did in the past,” Tombaugh said. “For better or for worse, there is a resilience about the American traveler that we haven’t seen in a long time,” she said. “I think we’re sort of redefining what uncertainty means, and I’m not quite sure if that word even resonates for people even more. I think they’re saying, ‘The world is crazy. Life is short. Let’s go out and explore.’” But resilience might actually reflect the high degree of confidence that travelers have in travel professionals – the tour operators, cruiselines and travel agents who are there to advise them more accurately when they book, provide more security when they travel and handle emergencies should they arise. Citing robust advance bookings, the panel – reflecting a cross-section of travel entities – were all highly optimistic of strong sales for 2018, coming off a record 2017 for just about every destination, bolstered by a strong global economy. However, the United States, was one of only two destinations showing a downturn, with international arrivals down about 4 to 6 percent –representing a $4.5 billion hit to the economy and loss of some 46,000

Travel professionals bullish on 2018, saying “Americans are resilient”: James Shillinglaw, editor-in-chief of Insider Travel Report, moderates New York Times Travel Show panel with Andrew Stuart, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line; Guy Young, global brand engagement, The Travel Corporation, Jennifer Tombaugh President of Tauck Tours; Alejandro Zozaya, CEO, Apple Leisure Group, and, Ninan Chacko, CEO of Travel Leaders Group © Karen Rubin/ goingplacesfarandnear.com jobs. They said inbound travel was hurt by Trump’s rhetoric, the travel ban, concern about gun violence, and

a general discomfort to visit the US. See page D5

Finding some family history while surfing the ‘Net BY CLAIRE LYNCH My younger sister, Susan, asked me look up some family articles online and with a little luck and lots of perseverance, I found even more than I would have imagined. I hail from Brooklyn so focusing primarily on the old time Brooklyn daily newspapers I typed in the names of my grandparents and great grandparents. Sure enough I found newspapers that went all the way back to 1874. In doing this online research I knew ahead of time that I would be reading many articles about people that didn’t ring any bells with me. I had heard all about my ancestors and knew a lot about where they had lived. So I also knew that certain key words and names would sound familiar but for me they would be dead ends. I had to keep plodding along and eventually I hit pay dirt as they say. In terms of coming across some family history, I had hit the jackpot. I connected my relatives not just by their names including middle names or initials but also by the streets they used to live on. If I came across a name and a place that didn’t ring true, I just kept on scrolling. A few short newspaper clippings

mentioned trips my grandparents had taken to the Jersey shore and to see friends in Virginia. Over the years I had heard about these trips so I knew by the names and places that these particular clippings belonged to me - and my siblings. I hastily printed the articles I wanted to show around and to keep in my family history files. When I used the word “perseverance” before I wasn’t kidding. Sometimes I would sit at my computer, start researching and have some luck. On other days I would start researching and end up going nowhere that interested me. I’d get frustrated but try again another day. I am a “tough customer” in the sense that these family history stories had to be authentic. I couldn’t persuade myself that so and so was related to my dad, for example, or to my mother, or to any of my grandparents on both sides of the family when I knew that some specific detail was off. As much as I wanted to have success, I couldn’t force success. There were some names that were spelled exactly the same as my relatives’ names but due to whatever circumstances I knew that it wasn’t my relative. If I came across a church, a parish, a school, a street, a neighbor-

hood or an event that my grandparents, parents, etc. hadn’t been to, I knew that it wasn’t the person or family that I was looking for. So I kept going. I forged ahead and eventually my diligence and perseverance paid off. It was worth it. I ended up finding some birth announcements, some engagement announcements, some wedding announcements and a bridal shower of my aunt’s which said that it was held in the home of her first cousins. It went on to spell out who had attended it and other specific details. When I came across my parents’ wedding day write-up, I was thrilled. It was a 225-word article about my parents’ wedding published later in the day of the actual event. It gave such details as who the maid of honor was (one of my aunts), who the bridesmaids were, who the best man was (my dad’s best friend), who the ushers were and the fact that my mom’s younger brother (her only brother) gave her away at the altar. It described the bride’s white satin gown, her fingertip veil and that she carried a bouquet of gardenias and bouvardia. The maid of honor wore aquamarine marquisette with a matching

headdress and carried roses and bouvardia. The article spelled out where my mom and dad went to school and where they were going on their honeymoon which the article referred to as their “wedding trip.” Some of the terms were a little old fashioned but that was okay with me because I was so happy to see all of the vivid details written up in one cohesive article. Another newspaper story had a large black and white photo of my uncle’s wife in her wedding dress and veil. It was beautiful to see the picture and the write-up gave many details of the wedding that I had either forgotten about or never knew. My mother was in a sorority when she was in high school in Brooklyn and I read about some of her high school sorority meetings and social get-togethers at individuals’ homes. My brothers and sisters and I had heard all about these gatherings from the stories that my mom had told us but again it was fascinating to see many friends’ names written up in one happy story. I was thrilled to read all of these various newspaper stories on a wide range See page D7

I’m a Hit with the Ladies! BY TOM MARGENAU

Don’t tell my wife, but if my inbox is any indication, I’m a big hit with the ladies! I have a hunch I get more emails from women around the country than any other old goat my age who isn’t rich or famous. Alas, they are just asking boring old Social Security questions. Here’s the latest batch. Q: You write a very confusing column. You recently wrote that someone cannot take reduced benefits on one record and then later switch to full benefits on another record. I always thought I would get widow’s benefits when my husband dies because they are much higher than my own. But are you now saying that I can’t switch to higher benefits later? A: OK, maybe I’m not the big hero with women that I thought I was. Maybe I just confuse the heck out of them, and that’s why they are sending me all these emails. I certainly am sorry I didn’t make things clear enough in that recent column. I should have explained that I was talking only about retirement and spousal benefits -- not widow’s benefits. So to clarify, the law says that if you decide to take your retirement benefits before your full retirement age (currently age 66), you must file for any and all benefits for which you are eligible at the same time. In a nutshell, what that rule is saying is that you can NOT file for spousal benefits on your husband’s or wife’s record at age 62 (or any age before 66) and then wait until a later age to apply for higher benefits on your own account. That is the deemed filing rule. When you sign up for one Social Security benefit, you are deemed to be filing for any other benefit you are due. But that deemed filing rule does NOT apply to widows. And that is a huge and special advantage that widows (and widowers) have. For example, assuming she is not working, a widow could take reduced retirement benefits at age 62, and then at age 66, switch to full widow’s benefits on her husband’s record. Or, it may be better for her to switch things around. In other words, she could file for reduced widow’s benefits as early as age 60 (again, assuming she is not working) and then, at 66, switch to full retirement benefits on her own record. Or she could delay signing up for her own Social Security until age 70 and then get a 32 percent “delayed retirement credit” added to her monthly Social Security check. Or, in your case, it sounds like both you and your husband are already getting your own Social Security benefits, and that your husband’s rate is higher. So if he dies before you do, then you will be able to switch to higher widow’s benefits on his record. For example, let’s say he is getting $2,500 per month

and you are getting $1,800 per month. When he dies, you will keep getting your $1,800, and then you will get an additional $700 in widow’s benefits to take you up to his $2,500 rate. Q: I am getting widow’s benefits from my first husband. When I was 68 years old, I married a second husband. But I still get widow’s benefits from my first. If my second husband dies, will I get widow’s benefits from both men? A: Not from both. But you will get to pick and choose. In other words, if husband No. 2 dies, you will continue to get widow’s benefits from No. 1’s Social Security account, unless No. 2 has a higher benefit. In that case, you should switch to widow’s benefits on his record. Q: I was 66 last August and filed for Social Security at that time. I get $750 per month. My husband is 67 and has been getting Social Security since he turned 66. He gets $2,250 per month. How come I’m not getting any spousal benefits on his record? I called Social Security twice and talked to two different representatives. The first said I wasn’t eligible for anything. The second said I was and set up an interview for me later this month. Am I due anything? A: Unless there is something about your case that you didn’t tell me, it sure sounds like you are due some extra benefits on your husband’s record. Because you took benefits at your full retirement age, you are due an amount equal to one half of your husband’s Social Security. That should be $1,125 (less your own benefit). In other words, you would keep getting your $750 retirement benefit, and then you should get an additional $375 in spousal benefits to take you up to the $1,125 level. Q: I am 66 and getting my own Social Security. My husband is 61 and he gets SSDI. His benefit is quite a bit higher than mine. I understand he will be switched to Social Security at 62. He is gravely ill. If he were to die before he starts getting real Social Security, would I be able to get widow’s benefits? A: You said your husband is getting “SSDI.” For those readers who don’t know, that means he is getting Social Security disability insurance. Or in other words, monthly disability benefits. And as I have pointed out hundreds of times in this column, disability benefits are just as “real” as Social Security retirement benefits. So your husband is already getting “real” Social Security. When he reaches age 66 (not 62), he will be automatically switched to the retirement program -- at the same benefit rate. And you will start getting widow’s benefits no matter how old he is when he dies, and no matter if he is getting disability benefits or retirement

benefits. Q: You are the most wonderful man in the world. I love your column and I learn so much from it. Thank you for writing it!

A: I told you I’m a hit with the ladies! If you have a Social Security question, Tom Margenau has the answer. Contact him at thomas.margenau@comcast.net. COPYRIGHT 2018 CREATORS.COM

At New York Times Travel Show at the Javits Center, New York, demand for international travel was high. Travel professionals predict a record 2018, based on advance bookings which are coming in much earlier than in the past. © Karen Rubin/goingplacesfarandnear.com

US Tour Operators Forecast Growth in Travel for 2018 NEW YORK –In an annual survey of travel forecasts and trends, members of the United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA) report a strikingly positive outlook for the industry in the year ahead.  Nearly all (95%) USTOA tour operator members anticipate growth in sales for the year ending in 2018. Two thirds (64%) of members are “optimistic” and forecasting a “boom year” with growth anywhere from seven to 10% or higher. After strong sales increases in 2017, “Member confidence levels for continued growth in 2018 are high,” said Terry Dale, president and CEO for USTOA.  “The reported growth and positive projections the year ahead are particularly encouraging. It speaks soundly to the remarkable resilience of both our industry as well as today’s traveler, who continues to explore, despite the challenges of an everchanging world.”   While USTOA tour operator members view the forthcoming year with strong optimism, they also addressed the global risks that could impact potential growth in 2018. Terrorism is cited as the biggest threat to consumer confidence, followed by political instability, and global financial instability named third.    In addition, when asked which global events could have the greatest impact for the travel industry in 2018, more than one third (38%) named the sharing economy; a little more than a quarter (28%) cited the Chinese market. 

Top Travel Trends Iceland was named top emerging or “off-the-beaten-path” destination for 2018, moving to the top spot from second in last year’s member survey. Colombia followed in second, with Vietnam named as third.    When asked for the five most popular or “hot” international destinations for travelers in 2018, tour operator members named Australia, Spain, Iceland and Italy (tied for third), France, and Japan.  On the domestic front, USTOA members forecast California, Florida and Hawaii (tied for second), New York, Alaska and Nevada (tied for fourth) and Washington DC as the most popular U.S. destinations for clients in 2018.   Members were also asked to name the destinations/sites most “at risk” from disappearing (from over-tourism, climate change or other factors) that travelers should see now. The top three chosen were Antarctica, Cuba and Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.   Arts and culture, adventure, family, and culinary were cited as the most popular travel categories for passengers by survey participants.   Who is Traveling? A little more than half (57%) of members’ customer base are baby boomers at 51 years of age and older. The next largest age group is 35 to 50 years old, representing about a quarter (22%) of customers. In addition, a quarter (28%) of Active Members said

families represented anywhere from 10-25% of their annual passengers. Roughly half (46%) reported a growth in solo travelers in 2017 over 2016.   Representing nearly $15 billion in revenue, the member companies of U.S. Tour Operators Association provide tours, packages and custom arrangements that allow 8.6 million travelers annually unparalleled access, insider knowledge, peace-of-mind, value and freedom to enjoy destinations and experiences across the entire

globe.   Each member company has met the travel industry’s highest standards, including participation in the USTOA’s Travelers Assistance Program, which protects consumer payments up to $1 million if the company goes out of business. As a voice for the tour operator industry for more than 40 years, USTOA also provides education and assistance for consumers and travel agents. For more information on USTOA, visit www.ustoa.com.

D7

Finding some family history while surfing the ‘Net C ontinued from page D3 of topics not just because I recognized many of the names but because over the years my siblings and I had all met many of my mom’s and aunts’ friends. After growing up in Brooklyn and spending their young adult years there many of them had married and moved to Westchester, Long Island and New Jersey. Still, I knew their names because when I was a child my parents would tell us stories about each person. I preferred doing the research this way. I didn’t want to have to sign up for any online web sites or mail some of my DNA away to see about matches. Nothing against them but I wanted to do the research my way and at my own pace. When I had exhausted the web site that was the most pertinent for my family, I sat back in my computer chair exhausted but happy. I had hit a jackpot. I laid out about 15 different articles in front of me and I pored over each word delightedly. I remember putting them in chronological order, recounting the events then shuffling them around and rereading them in random order. Each story, short or long, was fascinating to me. It reminded me that my mom, dad, grandparents, aunts and uncles had had lives before all of us children came along. With the printed pages in my hand, I couldn’t wait to show my brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews. We were getting together at my sister and brother-in-law’s on Christmas Day 2017 and I was bursting at the seams. I couldn’t wait to show them. I couldn’t wait to tell them how I had done my research. I knew that some relatives would be interested in my research process - how I got to the final product, what web sites I looked at, how I zoomed in on the one specific article on a page of a daily newspaper - and others could care less. They would just want to hold the actual article in their hands or see it appear in full screen on someone’s computer. When we got together over the holidays I made it a point to say that I was so happy that someone or some organization had gone to the trouble of putting the old newspapers online. I’m sure that going through the old archives is a time-consuming and often tedious job but I know it meant so much to me and my family. My brothers laughed and chuckled over seeing their birth announcements in the newspapers. Some of them had forgotten what hospital they were born in but when they read their newspaper clippings, they were reminded. As we sat around talking about the various newspaper articles, one of their first questions naturally was how had

I found all of these stories? I told them about the web site that I had stumbled across while doing my research and they all wrote it down so they could check it out and do their own research later. I explained that there isn’t one correct web site per se. Doing research means just checking things out on the Internet and fumbling along until I - or they - come across what they want to see. And because the Internet is so fluid, things change constantly. One day I may not have come across what I was looking for but a week or two later, while researching, I may have. I went on to explain that dealing with the Internet is a lot different than using the encyclopedias that we grew up using. Once the encyclopedias are printed, they are static. With the Internet, however, new information is added constantly. Back home after visiting with my brothers and sisters and their families and having some holiday sleepovers, I pored over the articles again. I knew that I had a favorite article in my hand, knew it all along. On one of those random researching days I came across a photo of my mom along with two other women. There were three large black and white photos of the three of them at the top of the page. Each one had a caption beneath it. They had volunteered for a church benefit in Brooklyn - for an annual card party, reception and dance that was coming up the following evening at the Hotel St. George - and the newspaper was playing it up. I had keyed in my mom’s maiden name and sure enough this came up because it was published a year prior to her marriage. I had never seen this particular picture before. My siblings hadn’t seen it, either. Over the years of course I had seen many photos of both my mom and dad at various stages in their lives. We kids would laugh at how young they looked in some of the pictures – and sometimes we’d laugh at the style of clothes they were wearing, the women’s hair styles and the cars they were standing in front of. It seems like poking fun at some of the women’s hats was something we were fond of doing, especially if they happened to look like domes, beehives, flying saucers, helmets, etc. Beneath the three black and white pictures of the women that I mentioned above (of my mom and two other ladies) was an article telling everyone about the annual church fair in Brooklyn. The write-up said that 3,000 people were expected to attend the fair which was a sit-down event that would feature a raffle. It spelled out what some of various prizes were.

Some of the church fair’s prizes, including a brand new car, looked pretty interesting! An orchestra would play some music, there would be dancing in the grand ballroom and card playing would start at 8:30 p.m. When I printed the photo story of my mom volunteering for the church benefit, the picture was a bit dark and hard to see. Online, however, it was crystal clear. On my computer I could enlarge

it and see every detail of the photo. Coming across that old photo of my mom and the other various articles was worth all of the time I had spent surfing the ‘Net these past few months. I still bring it up on my computer every so often and smile when I think about how I accidentally came across it while browsing. What a find! It meant the world to me.

However, such tax liens shall have priority over the County’s Differential Interest Lien, representing the excess, if any, of the interest and penalty borne at the maximum rate over the interest and penalty borne at the rate at which the lien is purchased. The Purchaser acknowledges that the tax lien(s) sold pursuant to these Terms of Sale may be subject to pending bankruptcy proceedings and/or may become subject to such proceedings which may be commenced during the period in which a lien is held by a successful bidder or the assignee of same, which may modify a Purchaser’s rights with respect to the lien(s) the property securing same. Such bankruptcy proceedings shall not affect the validity of the tax lien. In addition to being subject to pending bankruptcy proceedings and/or the Federal and State Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Acts, said purchaser’s right of foreclosure may be affected by the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act (FIRREA), 12 U.S.C. ss 1811 et. seq., with regard to real property under Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) receivership. The County Treasurer reserves the right, without further notice and at any time, to withdraw from sale any of the parcels of land or premises herein listed. The rate of interest and penalty which any person purchases the tax lien shall be established by his bid. Each purchaser, immediately after the sale thereof, shall pay to the County Treasurer ten per cent of the amount from which the tax liens have been sold and the remaining ninety per cent within thirty days after such sale. If the purchaser at the tax sale shall fail to pay the remaining ninety per cent within ten days after he has been notified by the County Treasurer that the certificates of sale are ready for delivery, then all deposited with the County Treasurer including but not limited to the ten per cent theretofore paid by him shall, without further notice or demand, be irrevocably

However, such tax liens shall have priority over the County’s Differential Interest Lien, representing the excess, if any, of the interest and penalty borne at the maximum rate over the interest and penalty borne at the rate at which the lien is purchased. The Purchaser acknowledges that the tax lien(s) sold pursuant to these Terms of Sale may be subject to pending bankruptcy proceedings and/or may become subject to such proceedings which may be commenced during the period in which a lien is held by a successful bidder or the assignee of same, which may modify a Purchaser’s rights with respect to the lien(s) the property securing same. Such bankruptcy proceedings shall

not affect the validity of the tax lien. In addition to being subject to pending bankruptcy proceedings and/or the Federal and State Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Acts, said purchaser’s right of foreclosure may be affected by the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act (FIRREA), 12 U.S.C. ss 1811 et. seq., with regard to real property under Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) receivership. The County Treasurer reserves the right, without further notice and at any time, to withdraw from sale any of the parcels of land or premises herein listed. The rate of interest and penalty which any person purchases the tax lien shall be established by his bid. Each purchaser, immediately after the sale thereof, shall pay to the County Treasurer ten per cent of the amount from which the tax liens have been sold and the remaining ninety per cent within thirty days after such sale. If the purchaser at the tax sale shall fail to pay the remaining ninety per cent within ten days after he has been notified by the County Treasurer that the certificates of sale are ready for delivery, then all deposited with the County Treasurer including but not limited to the ten per cent theretofore paid by him shall, without further notice or demand, be irrevocably forfeited by the purchaser and shall be retained by the County Treasurer as liquidated damages and the agreement to purchase be of no further effect. Time is of the essence in this sale. This sale is held pursuant to the Nassau County Administrative Code and interested parties are referred to such Code for additional information as to terms of sale, rights of purchasers, maximum rates of interest and other legal incidents of the sale. Furthermore, as to the bidding, 1. The bidder(s) agree that they will not work with any other bidder(s) to increase, maintain or stabilize interest rates or collaborate with any other bidder(s) to gain an unfair competitive advantage in the random number generator in the event of a tie bid(s) on a tax certificate. Bidder(s) further agree not to employ any bidding strategy designed to create an unfair competitive advantage in the tiebreaking process in the upcoming tax sale nor work with any other bidder(s) to engage in any bidding strategy that will result in a rotational award of tax certificates. 2. The tax certificate(s) the Bidder will bid upon, and the interest rate(s) bid, will be arrived at independently and without direct or indirect consultation, communication or agreement with any other bidder and that the tax certificate(s) the Bidder will bid upon, and the interest rate(s) to be bid, have not been disclosed, directly

or indirectly, to any other bidder, and will not be disclosed, directly or indirectly, to any other bidder prior to the close of bidding. No attempt has been made or will be made to, directly or indirectly, induce any other bidder to refrain from bidding on any tax certificate, to submit complementary bids, or to submit bids at specific interest rates. 3. The bids to be placed by the Bidder will be made in good faith and not pursuant to any direct or indirect, agreement or discussion with, or inducement from, any other bidder to submit a complementary or other noncompetitive bid. 4. If it is determined that the bidder(s) have violated any of these bid requirements then their bid shall be voided and if they were the successful bidder the lien and any deposits made, in connection with, said bid shall be forfeited. This list includes only tax liens on real estate located in Town of Oyster Bay, Town of North Hempstead.

Fourth-Grade Open House at Robert Seaman School BY DARLENE PERGOLA-APOLANT

Robert Seaman's fourth graders invited their parents in for their annual Open House. It was an incredible morning for all, especially the parents to see their children so hard at work.

Both parents and children were very engaged in projects together! Parents and students worked hard at the exercises given. It was a wonderful exercise enjoyed by everyone. Another successful Open House!

Family fun
