A hotspot for Syosset Library cardholders

Syosset Public Library staff recently abandoned the stacks on South Oyster Bay Road— just temporarily—to meet hundreds of new and current library cardholders on location at the 2018 Syosset Woodbury Chamber of Commerce Street Fair held in September. Visitors to the library booth found books to read, pages to color, great giveaways that encouraged reading, and lots of information about the movies, lectures, computer classes, online tutoring, craft workshops, performances, discussions, research tools, and 24/7 online services available at the library. There was also a library card hotspot where new users signed up for and immediately received a library card. “As the school year started, we wanted to remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all,” Syosset Library Director Christine Belling said. “Signing up for a library card is an important step toward both

academic achievement and lifelong learning. We invite people of all ages and interests to visit the library so we can show you what we have for you here and for you to borrow.” This year marks the 30th anniversary of Library Card Sign-up Month—a time in September when libraries across the country join together in a national effort to ensure that every child has, and uses, a library card. If you live or work in Syosset and would like a Syosset Library card, visit the library at 225 South Oyster Bay Road. Residents should bring two proofs of residency (one being a photo ID). Those employed in Syosset should bring a letter so stating on their employer’s official stationary or a pay stub, along with a photo ID. For more information about the library’s programs and services, visit the library at 225 South Oyster Bay Road or www.syossetlibrary.org, or call 516-921-7161.

Town of Oyster Bay Chabad’s Chanukah Spectacular All are invited to attend the annual TOB Chabad Chanukah celebration, a yearly family event, this year starring David Darwin, which will be held on Sunday, December 2nd from 4-5:30PM at the Plainview Shopping Center. Dave from Pennsylvania presents a laugh-a-minute show of juggling, sideshow, and comedy. He will keep you riveted with amazing feats to keep you talking for years. Imagine being entertained with the silliness of juggling three

balls while playing the harmonica, the danger of eating and manipulating real fire, or the bizarre sounds of bare feet walking across broken glass! Dave’s act will thrill you with whip cracking, plate spinning, lasso, ball spinning, unicycling, and more! And be prepared to laugh yourself out of your seat as Dave juggles, dances and sings with both legs behind his head in an act that earned him an appearance on NBC’s America’s Got Talent.

Also featured will be music, drinks, donuts, and pizza, celebrating the joy of Chanukah will be an experience to be remembered. The highlight of the event will be the Grand Menorah lighting near Shoprite, where a great prize will be raffled off for all attendees of the lighting ceremony. All children will receive Chanukah Gelt of one crisp dollar bill. Please note that the show will take place in a heated tent near The Chil-

drens Place in the Plainview Shopping Center. The lighting will take place in the walkway between Shoprite and the shopping center. The program is free; however, only online RSVP’s will be admitted - no exception. Visit www.JewishTOB.org to RSVP. For more information, visit the website or call TOB Chabad at 516-682-0404.

It all takes place in a museum where works of three artists are displayed. We learn how different people react to different works of art  (an example: a blank canvas) in a dramatic and comedic way. These visitors come from all areas of society,  different ethnic

Simai Deng and Haona Wu, members of the Syosset High School Physics Group, took 2nd place at the Teslamania Competition held on October 20th at Stony Brook University. Teslamania is a physics demonstration competition sponsored by the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe for teachers, students, scientists, and enthusiasts. The day offers opportunities to share ideas, strengthen relationships, connect with the community, and celebrate physics. Modeled after a similar competition held in Europe, Teslamania has grown annually on Long Island since 2007. Remarked

Mr. Slesinski, a physics teacher at the high school and the Physics Group’s advisor, “Simai and Haona did a wonderful job preparing and presenting their climbing monkey demonstration,” which was one of the highlights of the day. The Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe is a not-forprofit organization named after Nikola Tesla, the famous inventor of alternating current electricity and neon lighting. The organization was established for the purpose of developing a regional science and technology center on eastern Long Island, and offers several science programs and exhibits.

School Spirit is plentiful at A.P. Willits’ annual Halloween Bash! On October 26th, A.P. Willits Elementary’s PTA held its annual Halloween Bash for students to dress up in costume, trick-or-treat, create Halloween-themed crafts, and dance the night away! The Willits staff and PTA worked to transform the entire entrance lobby and hallway leading up to a completely decorated gymnasium where crafts, music, snacks, games and Halloween themed inflatables awaited! The party was a big hit and the children enjoyed all the festivities with their

peers. The younger students especially loved that fifth graders were on hand to dole out tons of candy, demonstrating school pride and leadership. Tradition continued with the annual “mumification” of Principal James Connolly being wrapped in toilet paper by the children, leaving everyone laughing and cheering! Arianthe Vangelatos and Amy Musnik, co-chairs of the Bash, planned the successful event, and a fun night was had by all!

students choose age-appropriate books. Berry Hill’s PRIDE Pals were on hand to help the kindergarteners and first graders shop for books and other

fun items while using their math skills to help the students keep track of their budget. PRIDE Pals are fourth and fifthgrade students who have volunteered to help around the school.   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. Lisa Sakhai and Wendy Brill, co-chairs of the Book Fair, put together another successful event.

The younger students enjoyed the attention of their older schoolmates.

Some PRIDE Pals read the back of the books to the students.

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy To Focus on TrailNation Advocacy for New Biking/Walking Trails BY KAREN RUBIN TRAVEL FEATURES SYNDICATE GOINGPLACESFARANDNEAR.COM On the fifth and last day of our 160-mile Rails-to-Trails Conservancy Sojourn on the Delaware-Lehigh Trail, the 37-mile bike ride back to the Hugh Moore Park in Easton along the Pennsylvania side of the river, is absolutely beautiful. After spending our layover day exploring Washington Crossing State Park, our last night together was a true banquet (grilled steaks! beer!) served under a gorgeous pavilion at Bowman Hill, followed by a talent show by some of the more intrepid Sojourners which is surprisingly great in addition to being pure fun. Biking back along the Delaware Canal State Park section of the D&L Trail, with its historic locks and bridges, I savor these views of bucolic villages and landscape. On Day 3 of our Sojourn, we also got to experience part of another of my favorite greenways, the Delaware-Raritan Canal trail on the New Jersey side. Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s TrailNation website offers an itinerary, but you can do a fabulous daytrip, starting on the trail just across from Princeton University, and biking north. You can ride 20 miles to the end, at Edison, NJ (or turn back when you feel you want to). I find this portion of the trail, which follows the canal, to be the most picturesque, particularly

New York State’s Empire State Trail will eventually connect 750 miles of biking/walking trails and make it possible to ride from the tip of Manhattan, on the Hudson River Conservancy greenway, up to the Canadian border © Karen Rubin/goingplacesfarandnear.com in fall. There are also places to rent a kayak or a canoe and you may even see the university crew team. This Sojourn on the DelawareLehigh is a sentimental favorite for Rails-to-Trails Conservancy – returning to the trail that was the focus of the very first Sojourn, in 2002. For the past 12 years, the annual Sojourn has been RTC’s way of

celebrating accomplishments in repurposing disused rail lines and canal towpaths for biking, walking and recreation, as well as to showcase gaps in trails that its advocacy works to fill. This year’s Sojourn was a major celebration of the opening of a new bridge across the river at the village of Jim Thorpe in Pennsylvania, helping to

G O I N G P L A C E S N E A R A N D F A R

complete the 160-mile long along the Delaware-Lehigh Trail. “Way back in 2002, the Railsto-Trails Conservancy helped draw attention to our burgeoning efforts to build the D&L Trail  from Wilkes Barre to Bristol, Pennsylvania.  Today, as we welcome Sojourners back, the D&L Trail is about 92 percent complete and we hope to be fully connected by 2022,” Elissa Garofalo, the executive director of the  Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor, wrote the Sojourners. “While we are still a work in progress, the route of the D&L is one that celebrates the legacy of innovation, risk, resilience and beauty of America’s 19th century Industrial Revolution.  As you travel our mine-to-market path, I hope you will revel in the wonders that my co-workers and I are fortunate to help celebrate, preserve and inspire connections every day.” (http:// delawareandlehigh.org/). But the 300 Sojourners – so many who have done multiple trips (I’ve done three, including two on the Great Allegheny Gap) – were disheartened to learn this year’s fully supported five-day bike/ camping tour was Rail-to-Trails Conservancy’s last, at least for now.  (It is hoped local trail groups or biketour companies would host  similar annual supported tours). The reason? So the nonprofit See page D2

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy To Focus on TrailNation Advocacy for New Biking/Walking Trails

Continued from page D1 organization can concentrate/focus on advocacy of preserving and repurposing trails – TrailNation –some 10,000 miles of multi-use trails, already. (You can find these trails on Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s site, traillink.com.) The urgency has come because the Trump Administration has pulled funding that had been available for more than a decade to help communities take back these resources for their own benefit – including local economic revitalization as well as improving the quality of life and healthful outdoor recreation – and changed regulations to make it harder for communities to take back these trails. For example, an important tool for advocates seeking to acquire and repurpose abandoned rail corridors has been Railbanking, a federal statute which provided the mechanism for communities across the country to convert former railways into thriving rail-trails that boost local economies and create healthier, more vibrant communities while protecting rail corridors for generations to come. The process requires complicated agreements between the railroad owners of the corridor and local trail managers and necessitates multiple extensions beyond the sixmonth period provided in the law. Now the Trump Administration’s Surface Transportation Board (STB) is proposing to significantly restrict the timeframe for these negotiations. Rails to Trails Conservancy has its work cut out for it – no wonder the non-profit organization, advocates for  its 160,000 members and supporters, 31,000 miles of rail-trails and multi-use

The Trump Administration has done everything possible to reverse course on repurposing obsolete railways and canalways to multi-purposed trails that provide alternatives to climate-choking cars and already strapped public transportation (largely in response to donors with a stake in fossil fuels like the Kochs who are spending their lobbying dollars to kill transit projects, see New York Times). It is ironic because, as we see as we bike, these communities were originally built in the service of a fossil-fueled economy and have collapsed largely because of changing technology. The Trump Administration is desperately trying to rekindle that economy and quite literally, force society back a century instead of propel us forward into the 21st century. But as Rails-to-Trails Conservancy points out, promoting biking and walking infrastructure can be an answer to so many of the ills facing communities today. According to the Rails-to-Trails’ website: Traffic Congestion: Biking and walking infrastructure can be a solution to local traffic congestion. Pilot studies have proven that people will choose biking and walking over driving for daily trips if the infrastructure is in place. Indeed, building more highways and roads has failed to stem the rise in congestion: Between 1982 and 2011, the number of hours of vehicle delay in urban areas rose 360%, even as the number of highway and road miles increased by 61%.  Economic Development: Trails

boost the desirability and value of the homes and neighborhoods they connect to. Prospective homebuyers in Ohio, for example, were willing to pay an additional $9,000 to be located 1,000 feet closer to a trail, according to a 2012 study by the University of Cincinnati School of Planning.. Trails and pathways have been proven to increase activity in downtown business areas by making it easier for people to get to stores without having to worry about parking and traffic. A study found the business occupancy rate in downtown Dunedin, Fla. increased from 30% to 95% with the opening of the nearby Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail. (Investing in Trails). Transportation Patterns: Americans are already beginning to shift away from cars for daily transportation in favor of biking, walking and transit systems. This generation of young Americans is the first since the invention of the automobile to be less likely to get a driver’s license than their parents. (See: Transportation and the New Generation, 2012). More than one-quarter of all trips we make are less than a mile—an easy walking distance—and nearly onehalf are within three miles—an easy biking distance. Trail networks create the infrastructure that encourage and enable people to walk and bike as part of their daily lives. Biking and walking is not just “an urban trend.” RTC’s 2012 report, Beyond Urban Centers showed that the share of work trips made by bicycle in small towns is nearly double that of urban centers. Social Equity: Comprehensive trail systems can bridge gaps within and

between communities, creating new access to jobs, physical activity and outdoor recreation-offering connected active transportation options to the more than 90 million Americans without a car. Health: Obesity is the most pressing public health crisis of our age, particularly among children. Obesity costs America more than $190 billion in reactive healthcare spending each year. Making walking and biking a regular part of daily activities by providing convenient pathways is one of the most cost-effective ways to combat physical inactivity – something we cyclists on the Sojourns saw constantly. When people have safe places to walk within 10 minutes of their home, they are one and a half times more likely to meet recommended activity levels than those who don’t. Comprehensive trail systems can give people new access to outdoor recreation opportunities. Protecting the Environment: The environmental benefits of green infrastructure are strongest when open spaces are connected. Trail networks contribute to a healthy environment by protecting precious open space while encouraging active modes of transportation that reduce air pollution, traffic congestion and climate change. The Beauty of Bike Tours Bike tours are my favorite way to travel these days. Biking gives you a sense of place – you travel at a speed to see a lot, but also slow enough, with no barriers to really focus on small and big

details. You can stop and literally smell roses (or photograph wild flowers), or chat with the fellows in period dress at the historic lockmasters house in Freemansburg, take time to review a poster showing migration patterns of birds. Camping makes a big difference in the experience. There are private bike tour companies that service many of these trails apart from these organized rides, notably Wilderness Voyageurs (which operated Rails to Trails Conservancy’s Sojourns in the past, and is offering fiveday trips on the Erie Canal and offers trips on the Katy Trail in Missouri, www.wilderness-voyageurs.com) that offer these itineraries as supported rides, most typically with inn-to-inn accommodations. Road Scholar offers all-inclusive bike trips geared to seniors (www.roadscholar.org) There are also outfitters, like Pocono Bike, that provide shuttle service to take you back to a starting point for huband-spoke kind of itineraries (which works well at Washington’s Crossing and the Jim Thorpe, where there are lovely inns in a most charming town). Pocono Bike offers full day, half-day, as well an overnight stay in historic downtown Jim Thorpe. Convenient access points allow for one way rides up to 36 miles, while two and four day overnight getaways feature up to 138 miles of trail through the D&L National Heritage Corridor (stunning in the fall foliage). (A four-day inn-to-inn bike trip goes from Jim Thorpe to Washington’s Crossing; the company also offers

But these large-scale programs, organized around groups like Rails-toTrails Conservancy and Parks & Trails NY, which bring together hundreds of people from all over the country, even the world, add a new and marvelous dimension to the experience – a sense of community, especially because of the opportunity to do supported camping. And these group programs are also organized with so many other features – special activities like entertainment

W R I T E R’S C O R N E R

As I See It: On the Ohi Day BY LOU THEODORE As noted in earlier articles, I was baptized Elias Theodorakos since it is the Greek custom to name the first son after the paternal Papou (grandfather). Within a few years, the name Elias (our first grandson is also named Elias) was displaced by Louis, its American counterpart. Three weeks ago at Grandparents Day at the Foote School in New Haven, CT, 13 year old Elias spoke before an audience of approximately 500 grandparents. He talked about his grandfather or Papou (that’s me), my grandfather, my grandfather’s grandfather, etc. He also noted how proud he was of his name and his Greek heritage. I teared up. In second grade, my immigrant parents were told by several public school teachers that it would be in the best interest of the family to Americanize the last name. The name was soon legally changed to Theodore. About that time, my Uncle Jimmy who came to America with my father changed his name to Theodore while Uncle John

chose Theros. My Aunt Stavroula also chose to change her married name from Apostolakos to Lake. I know our children and grandchildren would have preferred that our last name had not been changed. They are also disappointed – along with Mary (who is not Greek) – that I did not insist that they go to Greek school. But, such were those times. Although I am an American first, I remain proud of my Hellenic roots. And, it is for this reason that another OHI article was written. On to the theme of the article. The 79th anniversary of the repulsion of fascist forces by the Greek Armed Forces was recently celebrated several weeks ago on October 28. (The day came and went without a whimper here in the United States.) The Greeks refer to this as the OHI (an emphatic No!) Day. OHI was Prime Minister Metaxas’s response to Hitler’s order to peacefully surrender. What followed Metaxas’s response was 219 days of fierce battles. That in turn was followed by intense guerrilla warfare that resulted in a brutal occupational that included executions,

sufferings, famine, and sever inflation. The rest is now history for some people and all Greeks. For comparison purposes, the days of resistance of the various combatants to the Nazi-Fascist invasions are listed below: 1. Belgium: 18 2. Czechoslovakia 0 3. Denmark 0 4. France (the supposed superpow er of that time) 43 5. Greece (13,696 Greek soldiers died) 219 6. Luxembourg 0 7. Norway 7 8. Poland 30 9. The Netherlands 4 10. Yugoslavia 3 The total number of human losses in percentage of total population are also listed below. 1. Belgium 1.5% 2. France 2.0% 3. Greece 10.0% (750,000) 4. Poland 1.8% 5. Soviet Union 2.8%

6. 7.

The Netherlands 2.2% Yugoslavia 1.7% Here is what four of the more important players of that time had to say (citations available on request) about the heroic Greek accomplishments against the armies of not only Germany but also the armies of Italy, Bulgaria and Albania. 1. Adolph Hitler: “As a matter of historical truth, I must ascertain that only the Hellenes, of all the adversaries that confronted me, fought with daring courage and the highest disregard for death... “ 2. Sir Winston Churchill: “The word heroism, I’m afraid, does not reflect in the least the Hellenes’ acts of self-sacrifice that were the defining factor of the victorious ending of all the nations’ common struggle during the 2nd WW for human freedom and dignity. If it were not for the bravery of the Hellenes and their courageous hearts, the ending of the 2nd WW would not have been See page D6

Older Seniors Trying to Help Their ‘Kids’ With Social Security BY TOM MARGENAU

I am always amazed by the emails I get from older senior citizens trying to help their children deal with Social Security issues. I am talking about parents in their late 80s and beyond who are asking Social Security-related questions on behalf of their 60-something “kids.” Gosh! I sometimes feel out of place offering advice to my 42-year-old son and 40-year-old daughter, both of whom have spouses and children of their own. I can’t even imagine doing the same when I’m in a nursing home and they are pushing Social Security age! Oh, well. I guess the urge to want to help your offspring lasts as long as you are alive. So anyway, here are questions from senior citizen parents trying to help their young senior citizen children with Social Security. Q: Our son is about to turn 60. He is bound and determined to “maximize” his Social Security. He is going to wait until he is 70 before he starts his benefits. This concept is foreign to us. Both my husband and I took our benefits at age 62. We didn’t give this a second thought. But our son is agonizing over this. Can you help us advise our son? A: I’ve written about this phenomenon before. People of your generation usually didn’t think about trying to maximize their Social Security benefits. They simply filed for retirement benefits at 62. Some waited until their full retirement age (which was 65 back then). And a very few -- and I mean very few -- waited until age 70 to sign up for Social Security. But all of that has turned completely around. Today, it is rare for someone to start his or her Social Security at 62. In fact, the majority of seniors are delaying filing until age 70 to get the 32 percent bonus added to their monthly Social Security checks. Why are they doing this? Because they are bombarded with mailers and internet postings telling them that this is the way they will get the most out of their Social Security nest egg. Are they being advised correctly? Or are they being led, like lemmings, to the Social Security cliff where most of them will die before reaping these so-called maximized benefits? Q: My son is about to turn 65. He said that he does not plan to sign up for Medicare because he is working and has coverage through his employer. I told him that if he doesn’t take Medicare now, he would pay a big fine later. Please help me make sure my son doesn’t make a mistake. A: Your son should be OK. With very few exceptions, as long as he is working and getting full health coverage from

his employer, he doesn’t need to sign up for Part B Medicare. (That covers doctor’s visits and lab costs and is paid for by monthly premiums.) When he retires and loses his employer’s active health coverage, he can apply for Part B and he won’t pay any premium penalties. Your son probably should sign up for Part A hospital coverage of Medicare now because it’s free. Although, if he has a Health Saving Account, he may not want to take Part A now. (That is a topic for a whole other column.) Q: We have a 59-year-old daughter. She has been married for 30 years. But now she is talking about divorce. We really like our son-inlaw. And they have three wonderful teenage children. So we are doing what we can to keep their family together. One of our arguments against divorce involves Social Security. We are telling her that if she gets a divorce now, she will lose any rights to spousal and widow’s benefits she would be due from our son-in-law. She wants to see this in writing. Can you help us prove our point? A: I’m afraid you are going to have to find other reasons to keep your daughter and son-in-law together; your Social Security argument won’t work. And that’s because, assuming she doesn’t remarry, she will be due the same benefits as a divorced wife (and maybe someday, a divorced widow) as she would be due as a married woman. Q: My son is about to turn 62 years old. He suffers from mental illness. He has worked on and off over the years. But I am his primary means of support. I’d like to help him get disability benefits. How do I do this? A: At age 62, your son will be eligible for Social Security retirement benefits -- assuming he has earned 40 credits of Social Security coverage during his lifetime. If he is capable of doing so, he should apply for those benefits. If he can’t do these things himself, then you have to do it for him. You would apply for his Social Security benefits and, at the same time, file to be what is called his “representative payee.” That means his monthly benefits, and all correspondence from the Social Security Administration, will come in your name for him. He, or you on his behalf, should look into Social Security disability benefits as well. He would be eligible for such benefits if he has worked and paid Social Security taxes in five out of the last 10 years. If he has, and if his disability claim is approved, he would get higher monthly benefits. At age 62, his retirement check would be 75 percent of his full benefit rate. But if he gets disability, he would be paid his full retirement age amount, or 100 percent. If your son has not worked in five

out of the last 10 years, then he would not be eligible for any Social Security disability benefits and would only get his reduced retirement check. If he can’t get Social Security disability benefits, and if his retirement check is less than about $750 per month, he possibly might be due Supplemental Security Income disability, which is

like a welfare program. Talk to your local Social Security people about this. If you have a Social Security question, Tom Margenau has the answer. Contact him at thomas.margenau@comcast.net. COPYRIGHT 2018 CREATORS.COM

As I See It: On the Ohi Day Continued from page D3 clear. Until now we were saying that Hellenes fight like heroes. Now we will say: Heroes fight like Hellenes. The Hellenes in fighting against the common enemy will share with us in the prosperity of peace.” 3. Josef Stalin: “I’m sad because I’m getting old and I will not live much longer to express my gratitude to the Hellenic people whose resistance determined the 2nd WW. You fought without weapons and you won, being small before the great ones. We owe you gratitude, because you bought time and, thus, we could arm ourselves. As Russians and as fellow humans, we thank you.” 4. Franklin Roosevelt: “For Hellas there was granted a delay of 3 hours on the 28th of October 1940 so that she can decide on war or peace, but, even if a delay of 3 days or 3 weeks or 3 years was granted, the answer would have been the same. The Hellenes have taught dignity throughout the centuries (history). When the entire world had lost all hope, the Hellenic people dared to doubt the German monster’s invincibility fighting back with the proud

spirit of freedom. The heroic struggle of the Hellenic people against the German attack, having so thunderously won the Italian attempt to invade the Hellenic soil, filled the American hearts with enthusiasm and won their sympathy. A century and a half earlier during the Greek War of Independence, our nation expressed its sympathy for the Hellenes and was hoping for the Hellenic victory.” Yep, I still get that special feeling when someone refers to me as a GreekAmerican.

ALL PHASES OF RUBBISH REMOVAL & DEMOLITION

Election Day Thoughts BY BOB MORGAN, JR. This written on Election Day, 2018 before the voting results are in. I will, of course, attempt to make sense of what happened at the polls (and there are numerous possibilities) in the next piece. I note from all reports that the turnout is quite heavy. What follows are a few thoughts about the process this year. One major difference between this election and most prior midterms is that challengers, particularly Democratic ones, were far better funded than usual. There have been many examples of this, but perhaps most notable was the $70 million raised by photogenic Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke running against Ted Cruz. Mr. O’Rourke is the underdog at this writing, but certainly has gained a high profile both in Texas and nationally. But the wave of Democratic cash was not confined to well-publicized candidates like Mr. O’Rourke. Numerous Democrat House challengers around the country are running extremely well financed races, with donors large and small, frequently outpacing the efforts of incumbents, something that is quite unusual. To give a few examples from an article in MarketWatch, Democratic candidate Scott Wallace has already spent $11.8 million so far in a House race in Bucks, County, Pennsylvania, significantly ahead of GOP incumbent Brian Fitzpatrick’s outlay of $2.8 million. In a House race in the northern suburbs of Austin, Texas, Democratic challenger M.J. Hegar has paid $3.7 million for ads and other campaign efforts to date, exceeding Republican incumbent John Carter’s spending total of $2.2 million. My favorite example of heavy spending, however, goes to the many very expensive commercials on New York City television for Democrat Antonio Delgado, who according to polls is locked in a tight race with incumbent John Faso in the upstate 19th Congressional district. This district basically goes from Poughkeepsie north to Rensselaer County, just east of Albany. Not only

are the vast majority of voters in the New York television market unable to vote for Mr. Delgado (there must be 30 other Congressional districts in the market), much of the 19th district is located in the much less expensive Albany television market, not in the New York City one. But there were wall to wall New York City commercials for Mr. Delgado. Money must be no object. Of course, President Trump won despite being outspent by Hillary Clinton in 2016, but he was already a celebrity. Presumably, more cash helps to introduce a challenger and answer attacks by the opponent, but it will be interesting to see how much it makes a difference. One real wild card this year is the huge number of early votes. According to a report by NBC News, over 38 million votes were counted as of Election Day, compared with 21 million in the last off-year election, 2014. Indeed, the total early vote was not far behind the 46 million level in the 2016 presidential election. For what it is worth, the report indicated that as of the day before the election , 42 percent of the votes were cast by Republicans and 41 percent by Democrats. That could be a good omen for Republicans or it could just show that voters of the two parties have different timing. Of course, New York, among other states, does not have early voting, although the rules for casting absentee ballots were recently liberalized. There are arguments against early voting (early voters cannot take late breaking developments into account, voting is an important civic ritual best accomplished on a single day). On the other hand, it may be that the public has spoken and large numbers of people simply prefers the convenience of dropping a ballot in the mail or not having to wait in line on a Tuesday in November. In addition, the availability of early voting could help to take weather out of the equation, given that it is raining today in New York State. Maybe our legislators should take a look at this. More next week.

Annual Preamble Challenge participants celebrate after the competition.

South Grove students recite the Pledge of Alligience.

South Grove’s annual celebration of Constitution Day took place on September 17th and included many enriching and engaging activities centered around understanding a constitution and how it impacts a community. In preparation for the celebration, second graders wrote personal constitutions that highlighted their own values, which they “aged” by rubbing with tea bags. Music teachers visited second-grade classrooms to teach students the Preamble to the Constitution in song. Students enjoyed the musical

color guard, Student Council advisors, Principal Mi Jung An, and the Honorable Gina M. Lopez-Summa, a judge and proud South Grove parent. A short skit performed by students and faculty illustrated why the Constitution was first created, and included brief appearances by “George Washington,” “Ben Franklin,” and an extra special guest, Grover, the school’s mascot. After the Student Council representatives took their oath of office, the entire student body and faculty also took an oath to South Grove. Everyone

slant to their social studies curriculum. South Grove also hosted its eighth annual Preamble Challenge, in which students in grades two through five were invited to memorize the Preamble to the United States Constitution. Over 30 students were successful in reciting the Preamble from memory! In the culminating event, the entire school came together for a special assembly. The South Grove character education program was kicked off and this year’s Student Council was formally installed with the help of the

will be signing over-sized constitutions as a visible reminder of their commitment, which reads as follows: "We the people of South Grove School, in order to form a more perfect community, establish a respectful environment, ensure individual responsibility, and promote the general safety and well-being of ALL citizens, do enact and establish this Constitution for South Grove School: Be respectful and Be responsible."

Syosset Rowing Club participates in regatta The Syosset Rowing Club’s Women’s Youth 8 participated in the 54th Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston on a cold and windy Sunday, October 21st.  The head coach of the team is Kevin Kelley of Oyster Bay.  The Head of the Charles, held on the Charles River in Cambridge and Boston, Massachusetts, originated in 1965.  It is now known as the world’s largest rowing competition with 43 states, 24 countries and over 10,000 competitors participating in this prestigious regatta.  The race course, three miles in length, requires the boats to navigate a challenging river with six different bridges. Not every club may participate, as the organizers review entries and send out acceptance bids

before teams can race. Syosset Rowing is proud of its Women’s Youth 8 boat at their inaugural Head of the Charles race, and looks forward to next year’s competition! In the meantime, the men’s and women’s team are preparing for their next regatta, Head of the Schuykill in Philadelphia on Oct 27–28th. Syosset Crew trains on Centre Island Beach at the Oyster Bay Community Rowing (OBCR) facility. For further information regarding Syosset Rowing Club or are interested in rowing with other OBCR adult or junior programs, please contact Kevin Kelley at syossetrowing@gmail.com.

"Got support? Who's on your diabetes team?"

Diabetes self-management can be demanding. It is not easy trying to balance food choices, medication timing, physical activity, blood glucose monitoring, and doctor’s appointments with the stress of daily living.

Who’s on Your Diabetes Team?” The program will begin with a Products Fair at 6:30PM, followed by the presentation at 7:15PM. It will be held at the Hospital’s Research & Academic Center, located at 101 Mineola Boulevard, at the corner of Second Street in Mineola. Individuals living with diabetes are invited to attend alone or with a family member or friend, to learn practical strategies and resources to support their diabetes self-management. A question and answer period is included with the program. Admission is free, but seating is limited and reservations are required. To reserve your space, please call (516) 663-3916. Limited parking is available at the Research and Academic Center. Metered parking may be available on the street; please note parking fees are applicable until 9PM.
