Nassau County Police arrested two homeless men for allegedly trying to steal from a good Samaritan who stopped to help them on the Long Island Expressway on Saturday, September 8th at 3:40PM. According to police, a 54-year-old male victim was driving southbound on the Seaford Oyster Bay Expressway Exit Ramp, exiting onto the Long Island Expressway eastbound, when he observed a black Toyota 4Runner with California plates stopped on the right shoulder.  The victim slowed down and pulled over to assist the vehicle.  The passenger of the Toyota 4Runner allegedly approached the victim’s vehicle and reached in the passenger’s side window attempting to steal property

from the center console. The victim was able to drive away and said he saw the man also stop another motorist. Police say the suspect ran back to the Toyota 4Runner, entered the passenger side, and fled eastbound on the Long Island Expressway. Police say that upon further investigation, the passenger, Catalin Vaduva, 24, who is homeless, was observed stopped in traffic at the Round Swamp Road Exit.  He was removed from the vehicle and placed under arrest without further incident.

Free Narcan training event Syosset Library teams up for in Woodbury The Great American Read

Realty Connect USA and the Garrett L. Kassler Memorial Fund will be sponsoring an open Narcan Training Event which will be held on Thursday, September 20th, at the Realty Connect USA Corporate Headquarters, located at 175 Crossways Park West, Woodbury, New York. The event, which will begin at 7PM, will provide valuable information and training in the use of Naloxone, an anti-opioid overdose medication, commonly referred to as Narcan. This training is available throughout New York free of charge, and Realty Connect USA is proud to partner with the Garrett L. Kassler Memorial Fund in providing this crucial training to the community. “So many families across Long Island have been effected by heroin and opiate overdoses. Providing this training is a critical component in potentially saving the life of someone in the midst of an overdose,” stated Fern Karhu, Broker Owner of Realty Connect USA. “It can give someone a second chance at recovery.” Substance use disorders impact the lives of far too many Long Islanders every day as well as their families. According to the SAMHSA Opioid

Overdose Prevention Toolkit – 2016, there were almost 17,000 prescription drug overdose deaths in 2010, which was almost double the number of similar deaths in 2001. “Naloxone has proven to a be a valuable tool in the battle against opiate overdose. This training will allow someone to prevent a deadly overdose, which in turn will give someone the opportunity to return home to his or her family. We are proud to be involved in the fight to save lives.” stated Bart Cafarella, broker/owner of Realty Connect USA. An opioid overdose is a life-threatening situation and requires immediate emergency attention. Recognizing the signs of opioid overdose is critical to saving lives and participants in this upcoming training will be informed as to the signs of an overdose, as well as how to administer Narcan. Naloxone (Narcan) is a medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to prevent overdose by opioids such as heroin and oxycodone. It blocks opioid receptor sites thus reversing the toxic effects of the overdose. Interested participants should rsvp by emailing linda@realtyconnectusa. com to reserve their seat.

Free rabies clinic for dogs, cats, and ferrets

In an effort to protect our pets and prevent the spread of rabies, Nassau County Executive Laura Curran, Nassau County Department of Health and the Towns of Oyster Bay and North Hempstead are partnering to offer free rabies vaccinations for dogs, cats and ferrets. Open to all Nassau County residents, these vaccination clinics will be held on the following dates: Saturday, September 15th, 2018, from 10AM to 2PM at the Town of Oyster Bay Animal Shelter located at 150 Miller Place in Syosset. To make a reservation at this vaccination clinic, call the Town of Oyster Bay at (516) 6775784.

To make a reservation at this vaccination clinic, call the Town of North Hempstead at (516) 869-6311. “This partnership provides an excellent opportunity for residents to protect their pets as well

as their family against rabies,” said County Executive Curran. “I urge all Nassau County pet-owners to take advantage of this free vaccination clinic, and I thank the Towns of Oyster Bay and North Hempstead for partnering with Nassau County.” “Rabies vaccination for dogs, cats and, domesticated ferrets is required by New York State law,” said Health Commissioner Dr. Lawrence Eisenstein. “Having an up-to-date rabies vaccination eliminates the need for pets to be euthanized or strictly quarantined for six months in the event your pet comes in contact with animals that are known to carry and transmit the virus. To protect your family and your pet, it is absolutely essential that your animals have up-to-date rabies inoculations.” In order to visit this free clinic, all dogs are required to be on leashes and cats and ferrets must be in enclosed carriers.  For additional information on rabies, contact the Nassau County Department of Health at (516) 227-9663.

A Mother-Daughter Windstar Cruise Combines History, Active Adventures and James Beard Cuisine BY GERI BAIN

My 23-year old daughter Jenny and I have carved out two weeks to travel together, something we haven’t been able to do since she graduated high school. Setting our sites on Greece and Croatia, we decide a cruise will let us see the most with our limited time—and still be relaxing. We select a ten-day sailing from Athens to Venice on Windstar Cruises’ 218-passenger Star Breeze motor yacht (www.; it maximizes the time in each port, often staying on long after the larger ships depart, and goes places larger ships can’t. Plus, Windstar Cruises’ partnership with James Beard Foundation promises (and delivers) gourmet cuisine. We fly to Athens two days before the ship’s departure and check into the elegant Grand Bretagne Hotel (www. in time for a late breakfast at its rooftop terrace restaurant, where the views of the Acropolis are as amazing as the extensive buffet spread, which even includes spanakopita. At 11 a.m., our waitress suggests we look

Sailing into Perast (photo by Geri Bain) across the street and we catch the formal changing of the guard at the Greek Parliament building. Conveniently located on Syntagma Square, the hotel also is within walking distance of everything we want to see in Athens, and we enjoy being able to stop back “home” in between sightseeing for a cool drink in the lobby or a refreshing dip in the pool. After settling in, we head

to the Acropolis, but lines are long, so we go to the Acropolis Museum at the base of the site. The museum displays original treasures and finds from the Acropolis that were moved inside for safe-keeping. That evening, we join a free 2.5 hour walking tour (www. with Euphrosyne, an excellent guide who is both informative and entertaining and gives us


great touring tips. Taking her advice, the next morning, we are at the side entrance of the Acropolis at opening and find virtually no line and have the site almost to ourselves for almost an hour, and on our last morning, we take her suggestion and walk up the wooded trails of Philopappu Hill for amazing views of the city.

also love strolling through Plaka, Athens’ old town, especially the picturesque Anafiotika area with its steep narrow streets lined by white-washed houses with brightly painted shutters. It’s especially pretty at night when strings of light twinkle about the small restaurants and shops. We are sad to leave Athens but excited to board our ship. Our standard cabin is much larger than we expected; there’s a true walkin closet, a marble bathroom with a full-size tub, and sleeping and living rooms that can be separated by a curtain. We also are happy to

find there are no assigned dining times and tables and surprisingly, five different places to dine—plus room service. Throughout our cruise, we enjoy meeting our fellow passengers, and it seems the crew somehow learns everyone’s names almost spontaneously. The next morning, we are excited to wake up and find our ship docked in the center of Nafplio. We will be here from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. We start with a pre-booked fourhour tour to ancient Epidaurus, where we learn that theater was considered integral to good health in ancient Greece--just one of the fascinating tidbits our guide Elsa

shared. Most of the temples and buildings are in ruins, but the Theatre of Epidaurus, among the largest and most beautiful of the ancient theaters, is still in use today. Guides usually demonstrate the near-perfect acoustics, but we are lucky. Just when Jenny and I reach the top row of the theatre, a group of German students stand in the center of the stage and sing, their lovely harmonies reaching us loud and clear. Back in Nafplio, we accomplish our daily workout at the Venetianbuilt Palamidi Fortress, which fell to Ottoman control when the architect, who the Venetians neglected to pay, got his come-uppance by showing the Ottomans the way in. The fort is accessible by bus, or via stairs from Old Town; locals tell us there are 999 steps but we lose count! We quickly realize how hard it would have been to conquer. Once scaling the nearly 800-foot outer walls, intruders would reach not one fort, but a maze of enclosures. Areas that seem like they will connect, never actually do. Many times, we follow a path that seems to link to the next area only to reach a huge chasm or high wall, forcing us to retrace our steps. Our frustration is offset by the ever-changing and stunning views of Nafplio, the Aegean Sea, and the surrounding hills.

Old Nafplio, the first capital of the modern Greek state, (from 1823 until 1834, when the capital was moved to Athens) is one of our favorite ports. We visit the site of the first Greek parliament. Saint Spyridon church and the small Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation museum, but what we most enjoy is strolling amid the pretty Venetian architecture, with its characteristic red roofs and colorful windows. We dine at Kastro Karima, tucked into a back street. It has scrumptious moussaka, and at reasonable prices. Our next two ports of call are the ancient sites of Delphi and Olympia, which served as unifying forces for the many independent city states that made up Ancient Greece. Both were places the ancients would gather to pray, make offerings to the gods and compete in PanHellenic competitions. As at Epidaurus, our Windstar Cruises excursions featured knowledgeable guides who shared insights with our group (about 20) about ancient and modern Greece during bus rides as well as at the sites. Built on a high mountain slope guarded by steep jagged cliff faces, the site of Delphi is as awe-inspiring for its natural beauty as its temples. The extensive site is best known for the Oracle of Delphi, where people came from around the ancient

world seeking advice. The Oracle’s messages often were cryptic and could be interpreted to provide opposing meanings, so accuracy was high. In ancient Olympia, walking through its open-air park strewn with marble pillars, platforms and statues, our guide reconstructs the site and events of the past. We learn that ancient athletes also cheated by doping and that their traditional race attire was none (nudity) and only men could enter the athletic competitions. The hills surrounding ancient Olympia are striped with olive groves and vineyards. We see them up close at a complimentary allship lunch at Magna Grecia Farm, a family-owned operation producing olive oil and wine. We see how olive oil is produced then have a family-style feast with tastings of olive oil, wine, ouzo, wonderful local sausages, tzatziki and a zesty chicken and rice dish. After lunch, a traditional Greek dance troupe performs and then leads us all in a line dance around the room that seems right out of the movie “Zorba

the Greek”. At Corfu, our last port in Greece, we hit our first bad weather on an island bus tour and walk around the beach in the rain before heading back to Corfu’s Old Town, guarded by two forts. Fortunately, the rain stops as we explore Old Fort and the pretty marina at its base, and then slowly shop our way back to the ship. Rough seas delay our departure for Kotor, and after taking off, we hit the only rough seas of the trip. I get a bit seasick but once in bed, the rocking is no problem. The next morning is clear and the approach to Kotor through the mountainframed “fjords” (geologically a once-submerged river-carved canyon) is thrilling. Everyone is on deck, taking photos of gleaming white cliff-top churches and small villages nestled into rocky coves backed by steep mountains. Around a final bend is the walled city of Kotor, its ramparts rising in hairpin-turns to a mountaintop fort. Before exploring Kotor, we head to the nearby maritime town of

What makes our houses & homes so smart! BY CLAIRE LYNCH I am one of those people who used to think that a smart home was a house filled with very intelligent people. I hadn’t heard the term smart house as an eight or nine year old but by 10 or 11 I had heard of it because one of my grade school teachers was really into science fiction. He was familiar with several of Ray Bradbury’s stories and other science fiction stories and basically he said that the possibilities are endless. And when I read a magazine article about the various features of a smart home such as remote lighting, remote thermostats for heating and air conditioning, etc., that I realized people were referring to a home that was technologically sophisticated. Or make that more technologically sophisticated than someone’s neighbor’s house. I guess a comparison was inevitable. I thought long and hard about the term because I like new words in our vernacular to be fitting - and then I wondered who came up with the term “smart home.” What I found out was that science fiction stories have long been complete with ideas and inventions for the future.

We can improve on things we have now and we can dream of a world in which household tasks become fully automated so that we humans are free to go to work and enjoy our free time. One of the first stories that talked about the possibility of smart homes was science fiction writer Ray Bradbury’s “There Will Come Soft Rains.” This is a short story that Bradbury first had published in the May 6, 1950, issue of “Collier’s” magazine. Later that same year the story was included in Bradbury’s book, “The Martian Chronicles.” ( The story begins by introducing the reader to a computer-controlled house that cooks, cleans and takes care of virtually every need that a well-to-do American family could be assumed to have. It starts out on the morning of April 28, 1985, and follows the house through some of the daily tasks that it performs as it prepares its inhabitants for a day of work. It makes the beds, cooks dinner and throws out the trash. This futuristic story personifies the technology of Ray Bradbury’s twenty-first century world. It starts out: “In the living room the voice-clock sang, Tick-tock, seven o’clock, time to

get up, time to get up, seven o’clock! as if it were afraid nobody would. The morning house lay empty. The clock ticked on, repeating and repeating its sounds into the emptiness. Seven-nine, breakfast time, seven-nine! In the kitchen the breakfast stove gave a hissing sigh and ejected from its warm interior eight pieces of perfectly browned toast, eight eggs sunnyside up, sixteen slices of bacon, two coffees, and two cool glasses of milk …” Noting appears to be out of the ordinary at first, but eventually it becomes clear that the residents of the house are not present and that the house is empty. While no direct explanation of the nonexistence of the family is produced, the silhouettes of a man, a woman, two children, and their play ball are described as having been burnt into one side of the house, implying that they were all incinerated by the thermal flash of a nuclear weapon. In the original “Collier’s” story, the events take place in a deserted house in the city of Allendale, Calif., on April 28, 1985, a year changed to 2026 in later printings. The title and motif of the story come from Sara Teasdale’s 1920 poem, “There Will Come Soft Rains,” which had a

post-apocalyptic setting inspired by World War I. The imagery of the poem is echoed and expanded on in the story. Then I discovered that an American made the leap from reading science fiction stories about the possibilities of smart homes to actually inventing one. One of the first smart houses in the U.S. is the Push-Button Manor that was also created in 1950 by Emil Mathias of Jackson, Michigan, and featured in a “Popular Mechanics” story. As far as we can determine, this home was the first solid, wall-to-wall and automated home that was created to be lived in. (, 4/14/17) This smart home wasn’t for sale. The inventor invented it for him, his wife, Lena, and his son to use in their home. The Jackson, Michigan, smart home was created by a mechanical whiz who wanted an efficient home that could complete most of its tasks with the push of a button. In hindsight it has turned out that some of the uses were not practical but it was one of the first homes that showed the capabilities of the future of the industry. Some of the features of Push-Button See page D6

Don’t Get Hung Up About Maximizing Your Social Security BY TOM MARGENAU

Q: I am a single woman who is going to be 70 on Nov. 10, 2018. I have been waiting until I turn 70 to collect my Social Security because so many people have told me that’s how I will get the maximum Social Security benefit. I am trying to fill out my application online and am confused. It is giving me options when to start. It said I could start my benefits this month or in November. Another option was to start my benefits in March. I don’t want options. I just want the highest benefit I can get, which is supposed to be $2,740 per month at age 70. What do I do? A: If you really want that $2,740 monthly Social Security check, then just say you want your benefits to begin effective with the month you turn 70. In other words, choose November. But I don’t know why you are so hung up about this. What’s the big deal about getting “the maximum Social Security benefit?” Let’s say you picked one of the other options. You’d get just a tiny fraction less in monthly benefits. But you would get several extra checks. Let’s look at your choices. Say you selected September (the month you are filling out the application form) as your starting month. Instead of getting your maximum benefit of $2,740 monthly, you would get about 1 percent less. In other words, you’d get about $2,713. That is $27 per month less. But you would get two extra Social Security checks -- for September and October. That’s $5,426 you would not get if you wait until age 70. You would have to collect 200 Social Security checks after age 70 to make up what you lose by not starting benefits in September. That’s 16 years. In other words, you’d have to live until age 86 to come out ahead by waiting until 70 to start your benefits. Any Social Security claim filed after age 66 comes with the possibility of six month’s worth of retroactivity. That’s why one of your other options was to start your benefits in March. If you did that, you would get about 5 percent per month less. So instead of $2,740, you’d get about $2,605 monthly. That is $135 less. But in this case, you would get 8 extra Social Security checks -- from March through October. That is $20,840 you wouldn’t get if you wait until you are 70 to start your benefits. It would take you 154 months, or almost 13 years, to make up the money you lose by not taking the full retroactive benefits. If you really want that so-called maximum Social Security check of $2,740 per month, then go ahead and select November as your starting month. With these examples, I’m not really trying to tell you to select an earlier month. But I am trying to send you a message that you shouldn’t worry so much. In fact, when it comes to your Social Security choices, you are not between a rock and

a hard place. You are between a pillow and a soft place. Q: I just read that the maximum Social Security check is $2,788 per month. But I am only getting $2,420 -- and I paid the maximum into Social Security all my life. So why don’t I get the maximum? A: I sometimes wish the Social Security Administration would stop publishing the so-called “maximum” Social Security benefit amount, because it gets people like you into a big tizzy. The maximum amount payable to someone turning 66 in 2018, who has paid Social Security taxes on the maximum taxable income for at least the past 35 years, is $2,788. My guess is that you turned 66 and retired a few years ago, so you are getting the maximum rate payable to someone who retired when you did. When you think of it, there really is no “maximum” Social Security check. For example, I know someone in the town where I live who is a doctor. He is almost 90 years old, but looks and supposedly feels like someone in his 60s. And he is still practicing medicine. He has been getting a Social Security check for 25 years now. He is still paying taxes on the maximum amount of Social Security earnings and those extra earnings cause his benefit amount to be refigured upward every year. I have no idea how much he is getting, but I bet it is pushing the $4,000 per month mark. Q: I have worked all my life and always paid Social Security taxes on the maximum taxable amount. Now, one year before I turn age 66, the company I work for is letting me go. I am depressed on so many levels. And one of those levels involves my Social Security. I’ve been expecting to get the maximum Social Security check, and now I won’t. Can I simply send a check to Social Security to cover my final year’s worth of tax payments? A: No you can’t do that. The only way you can pay into Social Security is by having a job where your employer deducts taxes from your paycheck, or by having your own business and paying Social Security self-employment taxes. And please don’t stress about this. I must repeat what I said earlier: stop fixating on this maximum Social Security business. It’s not that big a deal. In fact, go to and click on their retirement calculators. Plug in your actual earnings and see what retirement estimate shows up. And then do a second estimate, only this time add in one more year’s worth of earnings. I will bet my next Social Security check that you will find almost no difference. A correction and apology: Last week, I wrote a column about not listening to friends when it comes to their Social Security advice, which is often wrong. Well, sometimes you

shouldn’t listen to me! Especially if I tell you to lie. Several weeks ago, I wrote a column about strange divorce cases and their affect on Social Security benefits. One situation involved a woman who had been married to the same man twice, for a total of 30 years, with a divorce in between her marriages. There was some question about whether she’d be able to verify the validity of her second marriage in order to claim spousal benefits on his record. I gave her some options to prove her second marriage was real. But then I rather flippantly told her she could file for

benefits and simply not mention the divorce. Several readers took me to task for suggesting that someone lie to claim benefits. And they were right. I thought my tongue was in my cheek when I was writing that, but it turns out my head was in a cloud. I’m sorry. (And by the way, the woman was able to provide proof of her second marriage and didn’t need to lie on her application.) If you have a Social Security question, Tom Margenau has the answer.

For our daily workout and photo op, we climb the fortified path to the Church of Our Lady of Remedy where the views of Kotor’s redroofed Venetian homes and the fjords beyond are amazing. We’d planned to continue on to San Giovanni Castle, a bit higher above the city, but the sun is setting and we return to see the city lights reflected on its marble streets and sidewalk restaurants filling with patrons. We wake up the next morning at 8 a.m. anchored just off Dubrovnik. We have 12 hours here and have decided to explore it on our own. After breakfast, a five-minute tender shuttles us to the dock right in the heart of the Old Port, where Fort St. John guards one end of the harbor and Fort Revelin, the other. A walled cliffside city, Dubrovnik is stunning for its setting as for its pretty red-roof topped buildings that climb up and down its hilly streets.

out the Dubrovnik pass.) The other thing about the city is its extreme hills. I wish I’d worn a Fitbit because by day’s end, we must have climbed up and down at least sixty flights of stairs following the guard’s walkway around the walls of the city, climbing the stairstepping streets of the city, and exploring St. Lawrence Fort, which defends one of the ancient harbors from a promontory facing the city walls. The walls, reinforced by towers, forts and bastions, started in the 10th century and improved right up until the 17th century, rise to over 80 feet in places and

we make a point of mounting each of them. All those vantage points make for stunning vistas—one more amazing than the next—and a great workout. Our final stop before Venice is Hvar, and we are only there from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. so we make sure to get up and out early. Our ship anchors a short distance offshore from Hvar, a small gem with its marble streets and Venetian architecture. Despite being a trendy destination these days, it feels like a small town. We see children walking to school and locals chatting in waterfront cafes. Of course, we have to hike up to the mountaintop Fortica Španjola

(Spanish Fortress). Like the town, most of what is standing was built under Venetian rule, which lasted from the 15th to 18th centuries. Then we pick up towels and water at the Windstar launch and walk to a recommended beach, just outside town. The water is calm and refreshing and the beach is beautiful. The next morning, we are up at 6:30 a.m. so we can be on deck as we cruise into the city of Venice, just as explorers and traders traveling routes like ours had done in the heyday of the Venetian Empire.

needn’t have worried. Everything stops when the fog is too thick. After a leisurely breakfast, we wait. Finally, the captain announces we will be sailing into Venice shortly and soon, we are sailing past St. Mark’s Square. Nafplio, Kotor, Corfu, Dubrovnik and Hvar were all strongly influenced by the Venetian Republic for centuries and by the time we arrive in Venice, we recognize the grand buildings, richly-decorated churches and marble streets that characterize a Venetian city. Each port is stunning, but as we take in the splendor of the Doge’s Palace, St. Mark’s Square, and the ornate

architectural details at every turn, it is obvious that Venice was the capital of the Venetian Republic in every way. Looking back at our cruise, Jenny and I are happy with our choice of ship and itinerary and marvel that we could comfortably explore nine different ports in ten days. We never visited the small

casino and apart from the wellattended, informative port talks, our favorite entertainment was the lively Crew Show. Like the ship, the show was sophisticated yet informal, mirroring much of what we enjoyed about Windstar. We also enjoyed getting to know our fellow passengers; while they tended to be more my age than

Jenny’s, the ship’s friendly, lowkey ambience was just right for a mother-daughter cruise. For more information on Windstar Cruises, visit www. ___________________________ © 2018 Travel Features Syndicate, a division of Workstyles, Inc. All rights reserved.

G O I N G P L A C E S, N E A R & F A R ....


What makes our houses & homes so smart! C ontinued from page D3 Manor included curtains that could be drawn automatically, windows that would go up and down automatically, a vanity mirror on a dresser that lighted up when the center drawer was opened a fraction of an inch and a set of clocks that controlled all of these events. If it rained during the night or when the Mathias family was away, there was no chance of water damaging the plaster or furnishings. Beneath a downspout was a small metal cup that tipped down when filled with water, operating a switch that closed the windows. (blog. The radio in the living room could be turned on or off from the bedroom – or from the kitchen or the basement. The garage doors opened and closed remotely from a light post alongside the driveway. Emil Mathias simply put a key in a lock in the post, turned it and the door opened. Inside the garage he threw another switch and the door closed. Or he could open and close the doors from the kitchen. A 1/4-horsepower motor in the garage ceiling did the work. Mathias traced his mechanical aptitude back to his youth when he harnessed the wind to grind the family’s weekly supply of coffee. A small windmill, some gears, a shaft or two, all went together to create a power coffee grinder that Mathias always remembered as one of his favorite devices. ( com) Mathias has said that his goal was always to make electricity and mechanics do more work around the house. He also believed that half the fun of having something is making it. Every one of his mechanical servants is his own design and construction. He admits he could have bought commercial models in many cases, but where’s the fun in that? He built an elevator in their house and admitted that he could buy one of those home elevators, but that would eliminate most of the fun. In 1957, a Disneyland attraction in Anaheim, Calif., called the Monsanto House of the Future was built and was

part of Disney’s Tomorrowland exhibit until 1967. The design and engineering of the house was done jointly by the Monsanto Company, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Walt Disney Imagineering. This project was sponsored by a plastic company so the key element regarding the home is that it was primarily made of plastic. Work surfaces, crockery, and the cupboards and fittings in

the home were all plastic. This material in the home made objects fairly light and the home easy to automate. The Monsanto Home of the Future was even equipped with an ultrasonic dishwasher that was able to wash the plates after meals. All of the telecommunications in the home was hands free. The shelves in the kitchen disappeared into the ceilings and a smart sink also in the kitchen could rise up and

down based on the height of whoever was using it. This was quite a display. This Monsanto House of the Future exhibit attracted 425,000 visitors in its first six weeks that it was open, and over 20 million during the 10-year period that it was at the Disney theme park. The introduction of the Internet has hastened all of the possibilities for all of the things that hopefully will make our lives easier. Flying cars, anyone?

What Made Writer Ray Bradbury Tick The son of a power company lineman and a homemaker, Raymond Douglas Bradbury was born on August 22, 1920, in Waukegan, Illinois. His parents gave him the middle name “Douglas” after the actor Douglas Fairbanks. Bradbury was surrounded by an extended family during his early childhood years in Waukegan. An aunt read him short stories when he was a child whom he credited with providing a strong foundation – both for him and for his stories. The Bradbury family lived in Tucson, Arizona, during 1926-1927 and 1932-1933 while their father looked for employment but each time they returned to Waukegan. They eventually settled in Los Angeles in 1934 when Bradbury was 13 years old. The family arrived in California with only $40, which paid for rent and food until his father found a job making wire at a cable company for $14 a week. This meant that they could stay and young Ray Bradbury was pleased because he loved Hollywood. Bradbury attended Los Angeles High School and was active in the drama club. He often roller-skated through Hollywood in the hopes of meeting celebrities. Among the creative and talented people Bradbury met were special-effects pioneer Ray Harryhausen and radio star George Burns. Bradbury’s first pay as a writer, at age 14, was for a joke he sold to George

Burns to use on the “Burns and Allen” radio show. Bradbury went up to George Burns outside the front of his studio and pitched his idea to Burns who accepted it. To support himself while he wrote, Bradbury sold newspapers. He published his first short story in a fan magazine in 1938, the same year he graduated from high school. After graduation from high school in 1938, Bradbury couldn’t afford to go to college, so he went to the local library instead. “Libraries raised me,” he later said. “I believe in libraries because most students don’t have any money. When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression, and we had no money. I couldn’t go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.” Bradbury attributed two incidents to his lifelong habit of writing every day. The first of these occurred when he was three years old. His mother took him to see Lon Chaney’s performance in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” which impressed him greatly. The second incident occurred in 1932, when a carnival entertainer, Mr. Electrico, touched the young man on the nose with an electrified sword, made his hair stand on end and shouted, “Live forever!” Bradbury said, “I felt that something strange and wonderful had happened to me because of my encounter with Mr. Electrico ... He gave me a future ... I began to write, full-time. I have written every single

day of my life since that day.” At that age Bradbury first started to do magic and if he had not discovered writing, he would have become a magician. When asked about his inspiration, he has said, “My stories run up and bite me in the leg - I respond by writing them down.” Even though Ray Bradbury was credited with raising the genre of science fiction to new levels, he did not consider himself a science fiction writer at all. He believed that most of his works fell under the “fantasy” umbrella and he also called himself a “teller of tales.” Bradbury wrote 27 novels and more than 600 short stories. He is most famous for “Fahrenheit 451,” “The Martian Chronicles,” “Something Wicked This Way Comes” and “The Illustrated Man.” “Fahrenheit 451” has been translated into at least 33 languages, and is available as an e-book. In 2004 Bradbury received the National Medal of Arts, the highest award given to artists by the U.S. government. Three years later, he was honored with a special citation from the Pulitzer Prize board for his “distinguished, prolific and deeply influential career as an unmatched author of science fiction and fantasy.” Bradbury passed away in 2012 in Los Angeles.

Children with performers from the National Circus Project at Syosset Library’s Summer Reading Wrap-Up.

Teens act out their roles to solve a murder mystery assisted by an actor (center) from the Murder Mystery Company during their Summer Reading Wrap-Up Pizza and Murder Mystery Party at Syosset Public Library.

Children and teens enrolled in the Syosset Library’s Summer Reading Clubs wrapped up their summer reading for 2018 in August with exciting theatrical performances selected especially for them. Younger children stomped their feet, clapped their hands, and sang along with musician and composer Keri Wirth, while those in elementary school enjoyed a comedy-variety show by the National Circus Project. It featured juggling, balancing, clowning—and plenty of audience participation. Performances for both age groups were made possible through generous donations to the Friends of Syosset Library. For their Summer Reading Wrap-Up Pizza and Mystery Party, teens took on roles and became cast members in "A Dance with Death – A 1950s Sock Hop Gone Sour" performed by the Murder Mystery Company. The play depicted murder most foul at a disastrous doowop prom. The teens became detectives; worked together to interview suspects, probe motives and ultimately figured out whodunit and why. Throughout the summer, raffle

prizes and other incentives encouraged reading in all age groups, from infants through teens: 593 children read 6,813 books or completed age-appropriate early literacy tasks that pave the way to reading. Nearly 90 teens read about 400 books. “The club encourages members in elementary school through high school to complete summer reading assignments since participants can read books on their schools’ suggested reading list—and receive prizes for doing it,” Sue Ann Reale, head of Children’s Services said. “It supports recreational reading, too,” added Sharon Long, Head of Teen Services, “since members can select books to read just for fun.” The summer also brought a host of activities to attend, from a rock concert, dance party, family karaoke night, drumming celebration, and spooky campfire tale program for children to a trivia night; coding, disc jockey, and album cover art workshops, and an exciting escape room exercise for teens. Many more programs are scheduled for adults, teens, and children this fall. Learn more at
