New healthy living business comes to Jericho Turnpike



Syosset High School student Gabby Materas (center, kneeling) created a program to bring music and dance to a group of special needs students at Syosset High School. See page 10.

Syosset Girl Scout awarded highest honor for health project

Girl Scouts of Nassau County recently hosted its annual Gold Award ceremony at Adelphi University. During the event, more than 70 local Girl Scouts earned their Gold Awards, including Iram Lakhani of Syosset. The Gold Award program recognizes the power and dedication shared by an elite group of young women who earn the highest honor a Girl Scout can achieve. She spent more than 80

hours over the past year planning, executing, and presenting the results of her project, which aimed to make the world a better place for others as well as herself. “These young women are among an exclusive group of leaders who have earned the highest honor a Girl Scout can earn. I commend each and every one of them for the countless hours they have spent dedicat-

ed to their project—not only to empower and better themselves, but to make the world a better place,” said Rande Bynum, chief executive officer, Girl Scouts of Nassau County. “Gold Award projects have positively impacted girls’ lives, their communities and the world for over one hundred years.” For her project, Iram wanted to address the issue of obesity See page 18

Syosset and Woodbury residents received ‘a dose’ of good news and advice on long-term well-being, thanks to a new health-conscious business opening last week. Kumar Bahal is the owner and CEO of new Syosset-based business Healthquest Vitamins (next to Marshall’s & HomeGoods in the Bagga Plaza, 565 Jericho Turnpike Suite 102). The store opened to the public Monday morning, June 25, and free trial samples of some vitamins are available for walk-in customers, as is an expert to consult. Bahal is a new member of the Syosset Woodbury Chamber of Commerce, and he officially joined the Chamber of Commerce on May 16. The next night he attended the monthly networking meeting at NEFCU on Jackson Avenue, introducing his business to 50 fellow Chamber members. He explained his vision to open “a very high-end, condition-specific vitamin shop and consultation service” on Jericho Turnpike after his many years of building a loyal customer base on Long Island and in the greater metropolitan area, with orders currently shipped nationwide. “We’ll be a lot different than

chains like VitaminShoppe, Vitamin World or GNC -- we combine our efforts with your bloodwork and your genetic testing results. We help you understand your labs and then design a protocol based on your medical condition and family history. I also have a great network of doctors and specialists to work with. Our business is offering customers complete nutritional and integrative care, and I am carrying more professional brands and higher quality vitamins and supplements,” Bahal said at the Chamber’s May meeting. A ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration hosted by the Chamber is being planned for the coming months. Healthquest Vitamins is listed in the Syosset Woodbury Chamber’s directory as a company offering “holistic protocol using vitamins and supplements.” Bahal was previously employed by Phil’s Vitamin Center at 617 Jericho Turnpike, and now he will be a direct competitor to the longtime business in the community. His interactions with customers there and elsewhere, connected through consultations and referrals, have led him to be considered “a legend on Long Island.” In a June 7 See page 18

Congratulations to the students and staff at Harry B.

ADL’s No Place for Hate initiative identifies schools and communities that demonstrate a long-term commitment to combating bias, bullying, and hatred while leading initiatives for creating and maintaining a positive climate. HBT’s Peers as Leaders and Buddy Club was instrumental in coordinating schoolwide activities that qualified the school for the designation this year, while South Wood’s Action, Acceptance and Awareness Club was a driving force in solidifying its school’s stature. This is the second consecutive year HBT has received the designation. Syosset High School also hosted a school-wide assembly to kick off its campaign to receive No Place for Hate designation in the 2018-19 school year.

The dancers take a bow after their performance at the Syosset High School Dance Showcase. As a natural born performer, Gabby Materas knows how much joy can be found in music and dance. During the summer leading into her senior year of high school, she had an idea to bring that joy to a group of special needs students at Syosset High School through a program she initiated named “Dancing Days”. Volunteering her time every other day, Gabby not only taught the students a dance routine, but provided them an opportunity to be active and share their love of music. The students were empowered to be involved participants in the program, choosing their own music and collaborating on the dance moves. According to the director of PPS, Mary-Lou Sapienza, Gabby is “so

well-rounded, so sweet, so caring. She lights up any room when she walks in”. Ending each session with a group hug, Gabby has made a personal connection with every student in the program. Gabby was inspired by her special needs brother and his love of music, and says that leading this program has made her feel good about herself and given her a sense of accomplishment. “It was one of the best experiences of my life” she states. Gabby will be attending High Point University in the fall. She will miss the students very much, and hopes that the impact she made on the students will have a lasting effect.

Schoharie Crossing, Mabee Farm, Cohoes Falls to Finish Line in Albany of 8-Day, 400-Mile Cycle the Erie BikeTour BY KAREN RUBI TRAVEL FEATURES SYNDICATE GOINGPLACESFARANDNEAR.COM To see how America came to be – and what really made America great – you need only to join Parks & Trails NY’s annual eight-day, 400-mile Cycle the Erie Bike Tour from Buffalo to Albany. This becomes clear as we finish out the ride, which takes us from one of the oldest colonial trading posts, through urban neighborhoods that rose out of the Industrial Revolution, then declined in the post-Industrial period, and now are being revitalized. A highlight on Day 7 of Parks & Trails NY’s annual 8-day, 400mile Cycle the Erie biketour from Buffalo to Albany is Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site. It looks fairly innocuous at first, a farm house along the canal, but here is the only place where you can see all three alignments of the Erie Canal - the 1825 “Clinton’s Ditch”, the 1836 expanded canal and the modern, 1918 “Barge Canal.” The house, now a visitor center, contains a fascinating exhibit and is adjacent to outlines of Fort Hunter, an 18th century fort and trading post, remarkably only discovered after Hurricane Irene in 2011. The historic flooding caused the Schoharie Creek to breach its banks

Cohoes Falls, one of the most powerful falls east of the Rockies, posed a major challenge for the Erie Canal engineers © Karen Rubin/ and destroyed the site’s parking lot. Aafter the flood water receded, a number of stone walls and numerous artifacts associated with Fort Hunter emerged. Excavations revealed flat stone foundations upon which a fort wall and 24-foot

square blockhouse would have been constructed. After the archaeological work was completed, these original fort foundations were preserved by reburying them. Their exact locations are now represented on


the surface with modern stone pavers. Artifacts recovered during excavation included a mix of domestic and military objects that represent the site’s Mohawk and See page D2

Continued from page D1 British occupants. Dates associated with the artifacts suggest that the blockhouse saw greatest use from the 1740s to 1760. Though you don’t really see anything of Fort Hunter, it points to how significant this area was in colonial times: Schoharie was a place of key interactions between Europeans and Indians, setting up a later clash of cultures. During the 1600s, the British and French competed for control here. In the 1690s, the British forged an alliance with

the Iroquois to establish a permanent structure - a fort/trading post - in order to solidify their standing. The Indians at the time of the Revolutionary War were settled on farms and in towns. They employed European style farming techniques, lived in houses, and the gender roles started to shift away from the matriarchal society to male-dominated, copying the Europeans. By the time of the Revolutionary War, there might have been about 10,000 Indians living in the area.

“They didn’t have a concept of property ownership. They were outnumbered early on” largely because of the diseases the Europeans brought that wiped out large numbers of the population, and over-trapping which pushed many further west. “They were very good at diplomacy - well organized - and controlled access to the waterways. They played the European powers,” David Brooks, Education Coordinator says. Most interesting at Schoharie Crossing is you can stand over the East Guard Lock - the original 1820s “Clinton Ditch” canal (now overgrown) - and see the same scene, minus water, as depicted in a historic photo. Facing the other direction, standing beside the water, you can look over to what remains of the Schoharie Creek Aqueduct, built between 1835 and 1841 for the enlarged canal. This once grand 14-arch, 624-foot long aqueduct carried the canal above and apart from the Schoharie Creek (it enabled the canal to continue to function during flooding). The aqueduct was abandoned in 1917 when the Barge Canal opened on the Mohawk River, and over the years it declined so only six of the arches remain. A short bike ride further along the trail, you can visit Yankee Hill Lock #28 and the Putman Canal Store - the last double lock that was completed in eastern New York. The Putman’s Lock Grocery was constructed in 1856 and owned by the Garrett Putman family

into the 1900s. (Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site, 129 Schoharie St., Fort Hunter, NY 12069, 518-8297516, Mabee Farm The initial appeal for me to join Parks & Trails NY’s annual Cycle the Erie bike tour was the exciting prospect of biking 400 miles, point to point, mostly without cars (and mostly on a flat trail), across New York State, with support services to carry our gear and host meals. But each and every day, I am pleasantly amazed at the array of sites to explore and discover. The Parks & Trails NY people who have designed the tour not only arrange visits at important sites along the way, but for morning and afternoon rest stops at interesting attractions that you might not have considered visiting on your own. This is the case for our afternoon rest stop (at Mile 33.6), at the Mabee Farm Historic Site, which also houses the Schenectady Historical Society Museum. Here, you can visit the Mabee’s 1705 Dutch-style Stone House, which was owned by the Mabee family until 1999. This is one of the oldest homes in New York State and the oldest in the Mohawk Valley. It was first built in 1670 by Daniel Janse Van Antwerpen, who, it is believed, opened it as a furtrading post. The property was sold to Jan Pieterse Mabee in 1705 and the house stayed in the Mabee family for a remarkable 288 years. It was given

to the Schenectady County Historical Society in 1993 by George Franchere, the last descendant of the Mabee line, for the purpose of being a museum and education center. It is a surprise to most who visit these colonial sites to learn that slavery was practiced here, beginning after Jan Mabee’s death in 1725 and ended 100 years later in 1827 with Jacob Mabee, his great grandson (when New York State abolished slavery). Among the 583 original documents from the farm are three bills of sale for slaves, wills giving slaves to children and a receipt from the Crown Point Expedition in 1755 when a trusted slave, Jack, was sent to Fort Edward and Lake George with supplies, two weeks before the Battle of Lake George. “What is significant about the Mabee family is that they were ordinary,” the docent says. Jan Mabee, born in Holland, bought the property from a neighbor in 1705, and lived in the cellar as he built the house. Jan and his wife Annette had 8 kids. The house partly made out of stone; the wood beams are 1000 years old. Jan was likely involved in the illegal trapping business. His wife was part Mohawk so they had a good relationship with the local Indians. The Dutch were

tolerant and fair with the tribes (it was the British and French who cheated them). Over the years, the house was turned into the Mabee Inn. Simon Mabee farmed the land and when he died, he left everything but the Inn to his son, Jacob; he left the inn to his two sisters. It turns out that the Mabee farm is more than a history lesson, but a study of a dysfunctional family. “Jacob was not a nice man. Jacob evicted them. He hired a carpenter and flipped the staircase around so they have no way to get up to the second floor. He built a new door. The sisters lived in one room.

As I See It: When New York City was New York City BY LOU THEODORE As most of you know, I was born in New York City in 1934 and called it home until 1970. My first 7 years were spent in the north end of Hell’s Kitchen. The next 12 years were spent in an area that is known as Lincoln Center. The last 17 years of those were spent in Astoria, Queens. In effect, NYC was my home for the first 36 years of my life. This tale is the second of a 2-part article concerned with New York City during that 36 year time period. I made a conscious decision to split the “When New York City was New York City” article into two timeframes: 1934-1953 and 1953-1970. The first part appeared in August 2017; it keyed on life in Hell’s Kitchen and naturally, the material was autobiographical. Flash back to 1953 and the tale of this piece begins in Astoria, Queens – my new residence at that time. World War II is a thing of the past and a fleeting memory. The Great Depression is also a fleeting memory. Gone is the Office of Price Administration (OPA) and the accompanying rationing via coupons, and, to a lesser degree, tokens. Jobs abound. Good-paying jobs. Some really good-paying jobs. The worm had indeed

turned. Our great nation is experiencing boom economic times along with superpower status due, in part, to a combination of democracy and capitalism. Perhaps even more important was the Marshall Plan, devised by General George C. Marshall. The World War II period had converted out nation into a manufacturing giant. But, the economic boom was about to come to a halt since there weren’t enough buyers of the goods and services we could produce. Enter the aforementioned Marshall’s plan of reviving the economies of Europe and Asia in order to develop markets for our goods and services. And, guess what? It brought prosperity beyond belief to our nation for nearly 40 years. The 50s and 60s were understandably periods when it seemed that nothing could go wrong, everything was going right, and anything was possible; it was a special era. The relentless pressure of war and personal and economic sacrifices were now history. In a very real sense, it was a time of innocence. WWII was just a 2-letter Roman numeral. The Hamptons were still a rich Waspy family living on Park Avenue. Korea was also a thing of the past. The basketball point-shaving scandals didn’t apply

to my friends who I have dubbed the Boys of Killeen’s. Jack Molinas was one of the few Greeks (I thought)--he was Jewish--who had gone bad. It almost was a reincarnation of the roaring 20s--everyday brought joy, excitement, laughs, new challenges, etc. It was also a time of great friendship, good times, perhaps excessive drinking, beautiful girls and great athletes. “Eddie My Love,” a haunting melody that is still with me, was the juke box favorite over several summers. There were other tunes during that period. In addition to “Eddie My Love,” there was “Sh-Boom” (Crew Cuts) and “Earth Angel” (the Penguins). Rock ‘n’ Roll had arrived. The song “You’ll Never Walk Alone” was also bothersome at the time since I found myself walking home alone every night. Likewise was the tune “You Belong to Me” (Jo Stafford), since there was no one I could claim belonged to me. Add this to my favorite tune from the late 1940s, Russ Morgan’s “So tired” (I’ll wait forever dear). But along came the Chordettes with “Mr. Sandman” who indeed did bring me a dream--a Bayside Queen named Mary Kathleen Tonry--and my lonesome nights were over. I fortunately disregarded Damon Runyon’s advice, “fall in love with an

heiress if you must fall in love.” Here are five of my memories of that era—memories that will never leave me. They center around Killeen’s Tavern, my basketball team, Rockaway Beach and (of course) my favorite.

Killeen’s Tavern

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, there was a small bar named Killeen’s Tavern on a side street in Astoria, New York. The tavern’s history dates back to about 1934 (the author’s birth year). It was owned by a burly Irishman. The whole place was no bigger than 30 ft. by 15 ft., half of it designed like a half-moon bar, and the other half consisting of a few tables, a juke box, a telephone booth, a toilet that was always clogged up, and a kitchen that didn’t work. Beer was 12 cents a glass, and a shot of rye was 45 cents. The local crowd had its colorful characters. Damon Runyon would have loved this place. There was “Buster” the late night singer who crooned Sweet Leylani, Lorraine the Dancer, “Cuz” the night bartender, “Oil Pan” Tom, the landlord Pete the Russian, Freddie “Spook” Stegman--the greatest sport birddog this side of the Mississippi, and See page D6

Usually, I like to focus my column around one topic. But today I’ll just open up my email inbox and pull out a hodgepodge of questions. Q: I am 64 years old. I plan to start my Social Security at age 66. My husband is 62 and has been getting Social Security disability benefits for several years. His benefit rate is higher than mine will be by $210. If he dies, will I get widow’s benefits or will I not qualify because he isn’t getting real Social Security? A: I think I’ve said a hundred times in this column that disability benefits are just as “real” as any other kind of Social Security. So when your husband dies, you will get widow’s benefits. Assuming you are over 66 when that happens, you will get an extra $210 in widow’s payments tacked on to your retirement benefit. Q: I am 74 years old and still working. I am in good health and plan to continue working as long as I can. And I have no intention of signing up for my Social Security until I can fully maximize by benefits. At what age will be? A: You are already well past that age. Once you reach age 70, there is no point in delaying filing for your Social Security. By that age, you have already received the maximum “delayed retirement credits” that you are due. They cap out at 32 percent at age 70. In other words, had you filed for benefits at age 70, you would have gotten 132 percent of your full retirement benefit. And if you file now at age 74, you will get the same 132 percent rate. So you should file a Social Security claim right away. You will be able to get a maximum of six months retroactive benefits. Q: I was married to my first husband for 28 years. I have been married to my second husband for 12 years. My first husband just died. Can I get widow’s benefits on his Social Security account? A: No. As long as you are married to husband No. 2, you can’t get any Social Security from No. 1. But if your marriage to No. 2 ends (through death or divorce), then you can claim widow’s benefits from your first husband -- if they pay more than what you might be due from your second husband. Q: I worked for the Union Pacific railroad for 15 years. But I spent most of my life (more than 30 years) working at jobs where I paid into Social Security. When I went to file for my Social Security retirement, the clerk told me my claim would be sent to the Railroad Retirement Board for processing. What gives? A: For those readers who don’t know, railroad workers pay into the Railroad Retirement system, not into Social

Security. But the two programs mimic each other in almost all respects -- except that railroad retirement includes a second tier of benefits that are designed to resemble a private defined pension plan. Anyone with more than 10 years of railroad service is considered vested in the railroad pension system. So your claim is shipped to the RRB so they can determine what, if any, tier-two benefits you might be due. They also make sure your Social Security claim is processed and your benefits are properly paid. Q: I am 59 and soon to turn 60. I am getting $1,850 in my own Social Security disability. My husband died unexpectedly last month. His full age 66 benefit was $2,230. I talked to someone at SSA and she told me I should file for disabled widow’s benefits because they are always higher than regular widow’s benefits. Is this true? A: Please bear in mind that I don’t know all the facts about your case. But if you were told that disabled widow’s benefits are higher than regular widow’s benefits, that’s just not true. The earliest a widow normally can get benefits is age 60. But a disabled widow can file as early as age 50. A disabled widow gets a rate equal to 71.5 percent of her husband’s full benefit. That is the same rate payable to a 60-year-old widow. 71.5 percent of your husband’s benefit is about $1,600. And that is less than you are getting in your own Social Security. So there is no point in filing for disabled widow’s benefits. But if you wait until you are 66 years old, at that point, you can switch to 100 percent of your husband’s Social Security. Q: I’m confused. My husband and I are both in our late 80s. He is in poor health and may not live much longer. I don’t know what my widow’s benefit will be. He started his Social Security when he was 64. I took mine at 62. He gets $1,850. I get $1,345. Someone told me that when he dies, I will get 100 percent of his benefit. But another person told me I will only get 92 percent. Who is right? A: Well, in a way, they both are. I know that sounds confusing, but I will explain. But first of all, let me assure you that when he dies, your own benefit will be supplemented up to 100 percent of what he was getting at the time of death. So you will keep getting your own $1,345 rate, and then you will get an extra $505 in widow’s benefits to take you up to his $1,850 level. Thus, the first answer was right. I think what the second person was trying to say was that by taking benefits at age 64, your husband is getting about 92 percent of his full benefit rate. In other words, his $1,850 check represents 92 percent of his full retirement amount. And when he dies, you will get that same 92 percent

rate. But you’re going to get 100 percent of his 92 percent rate. Does that make sense? The bottom line is that you will get an extra $505 in widow’s benefits when he dies.

As I See It: When New York City was New York City C ontinued from page D3

dapper George Connelly--the Sunday bartender of 30 years who many believe James Cagney had copied his mannerisms from. Then there was the day bartender--Pat Killeen himself. An impressive 6’ 1” and burly 275-lb. man with a thick Irish brogue, who, when angry, would roll his black cigar from one end of his mouth to the other. Yes, he could intimidate if necessary. But he was a fair and open-minded individual, always with the best intentions at heart. Who were the other inhabitants of the Tavern? Here are some of their names: Scratch, Buddy, Gaylord (the author), Big Dan, The Whale, Jimmy the Greek, Steve the Greek, Weegie, The Rat, Vince the Prince, The Grey Fox, The Scavenger, The Buff, The Snake, The Brat, Tuto, Tex, Superman, Buster, The Hawk, The Cool, The Phantom, The Bant, The Weedler, Big Fitz, Red, Joey Hot Dog, Sparksy, Dixie, Jake the Weightlifter (all 95 lbs. of him) Bugsy, Louie The Lob, Filthy Phil, Tony Guido, etc. The girls included Mary Gloves, Marie the Dancer … perhaps it be best to stop here. The Boys of Killeen’s were the chil-

dren of working-class parents who endured The Great Depression and survived the harsh times of that era. Although better off than their parents, the Boys of Killeen’s were a group that appreciated good times, and were not nearly as security-conscious as their parents. It was a group that ultimately went on to succeed in the workplace, no doubt influenced by their New York City and Killeen’s experiences.

The legendary Killeen’s Tavern basketball team

I’ll pass here since most of the details appeared in my book, Basketball Coaching 101 (Amazon $18).

Rockaway Beach

It was New York City’s beach of beaches during that era. It was a period when many referred to the Rockaway’s as the Irish Riviera; interestingly, Jimmy Breslin described it as “where wood rots and people waste.” There were numerous drinking establishments one block from the beach to accommodate the crowds. They included Murphy’s and Gilroy’s on 90th Street, the quartet of the Irish Circle, Rainbow Bar, Leitrim House and Mickey Carton’s Mayo House on 103rd Street (he played the accordion while his sister, Mary,

sang). Ruthie Morrissey, regularly featured at the Mayo House, captured and touched so many hearts. The Mayo House was a favorite of the senior folk but it was Gildea’s--famous for drinking, dancing and fighting--that the younger set frequented most. Further west was McNulty’s and the White House on 109th Street and 110th Street, respectively. It was also a time I earnestly became interested in girls. At Gildea’s, I remember watching, with envy, the Savoy--a dance I never quite mastered. The 108 St basketball courts? I’ll pass again since numerous details and memories are available elsewhere. Did I mention my book, Basketball Coaching 101 (Amazon--$18)?

The Queen

How many guys have married the girl of their dreams? Well, I did. We married in 1967 after a 3-year courtship. Mary recently celebrated her 51st anniversary. It was dinner with the entire family at the Limani restaurant in Roslyn.

The Fabulous Copacabana

at the Copa. George Duganis was the maître d’ and a great table was always available. The best shows included Louie Prima, Don Rickles, Joe E. Lewis, Bobby Vinton, etc. Of course, there was more: Belmont Park, Saratoga, Yonkers and Roosevelt Raceway, the Jewish Alps (the Catskills), bar-hopping, etc. Space precludes providing details. I close this out with a comment from one of my readers on the first article: “I’ll always believe that our New York City was quite special. Somehow, I think you’d agree.” Amen! n

“The great hills of the South Country they stand along the sea; and it’s there, walking in the high woods, that I would wish to be, and the men that were boys when I was a boy walking along with me” (from The South Country: Hilaire Belloc (1870-1953). Visit the author at: or on his Facebook page at Basketball Coaching 101

And, it was indeed fabulous. And, it was a time I was courting The Queen. Name the premier entertainers of that era, and The Queen and I saw them

Schoharie Crossing, Mabee Farm, Cohoes Falls to Finish Line in Albany of 8-Day, 400-Mile Cycle the Erie BikeTour C ontinued from page D5 the Lost & Found. And awards: like the most bones broken; the most crashes (5); most flat tires (4); the youngest solo peddling cyclist (8), the oldest cyclist (84). Side-splitting fun. Day 8, Schenectady to Albany, 31 Miles Our last day, the eighth of our 400mile journey which began in Buffalo, is a breeze. Just 31 miles from Niskayuna into downtown Albany where most of us have parked our cars to take the bus to Buffalo for the start of the tour. The weather is perfect – sunny, cool. The highlight of today’s ride comes at Mile 12: Cohoes Falls, one of the most powerful falls east of the Rockies which posed a major challenge for the Erie Canal engineers. Some of our riders who started in Buffalo were able to visit Niagara Falls and now are ending with Cohoes Falls, outside of Albany. What a way to bookend this journey. Just next to the falls are 19th century brick structures, built as factories that

have been repurposed to apartments. Our ride takes us onto Peebles Island State Park, Waterford, where our final rest stop of our journey is arranged at the Erie Canalway Visitor Center. During the Revolutionary War, American forces prepared defenses here to make a final stand against the British. (518-237-7000, We ride through city streets - notable for the American flags that are flying - neighborhoods that have seen better days but nonetheless evoke a folksy feel of Americana. Now, we come to the Hudson River, a goal in itself. We ride along a beautiful paved trail beside the Hudson that takes us into downtown Albany, New York State’s 300-year-old capital, and finally, cross the finish line, 400 miles. You realize you haven’t just traveled 400 miles, but 400 years of American history, back to its very founding. And you understand so much better, the trajectory from colonialism and the clash of cultures with Native Americans, the transition from an agrarian economy

to the Industrial Revolution, the wave of immigration and innovation, the progressive movements that followed and precipitated the explosive changes in society: labor, Women’s Rights, abolition. Most interesting of all, is how all of these seeds still flower in contemporary culture and politics. All of this unfolds before our eyes, mile by mile. Biking adds an extra dimension to sight-seeing. It’s physical participation, an endorphin rush, an immersion. It puts you into the scene rather than merely observing – a participant, a part of the scene, rather than apart from it. The tour is meticulously planned, well organized and supported, and how we have such wonderful opportunities to meet people from around the country (36 states are represented) and around the world (travelers from a half-dozen countries are here). A gathering like this prompts such fascinating interactions as people share their backgrounds, perspectives. All of us have been so impressed by

how well organized the trip is - from the truck drivers who pick up and drop off our gear each day, to the people who set up our breakfast and dinners and the morning and afternoon rest stops, to the SAG drivers and the riders who are there to assist if we have a problem. To the lecturers, the massage therapist and bike mechanics who travel along with us like camp followers. For those who prefer not to set up their own tent (or take advantage of “indoor camping”) there is Comfy Campers, the closest thing to “glamping”. You have the luxury of having someone set up tent so it’s ready when you arrive, especially if it is raining, where you get a remarkably comfortable air mattress to put your sleeping bag on (amazing what a difference this makes), and take the tent down in the morning so you can just hit the trail again. Not to mention a fresh towel each day! Also, they set up a separate comfortable sitting area under canvas with charging stations. Those who want can also pay for coffee in the morning.


We are told that the finish line right at the Albany visitor center closes at 2 pm; UPS is on hand for those who need to ship their bikes home; a shower is made available nearby at the North YMCA; the municipal parking lot where

Historic photo of the lock at Schoharie Crossing © Karen Rubin/ many of us have parked our car is just next door; our luggage is deposited in the parking lot behind the visitor center for us to claim; some of us will take the shuttle bus back to Buffalo. This has been one of the best, most memorable trips I have ever taken because the end-to-end Cycle the Erie ride hits on all cylinders: physically active and challenging so you feel you have really accomplished something at the end; communal - being with like-minded people from all over the country and the world, rich in heritage, scenic, affording real exploration and

series, more than 700 cyclists aged 6 to 82 from 37 states and several Canadian provinces, as well as Australia and the United Kingdom, have just departed from Buffalo on Parks & Trails New York’s 20th annual Cycle the Erie Canal bike tour in celebration of the Erie Canal Bicentennial and Barge Canal Centennial. The 400-mile journey along the legendary Erie Canal ends in Albany on July 15. You can also follow the adventure on Facebook (www.facebook. com/parksandtrailsny),  Twitter (, and  Instagram (

For more information on Cycle the Erie Canal, contact Parks & Trails New York at 518-434-1583 or visit www.ptny. org, You can do the trip on your own (you can download the route and do it all, or do segments as you like; detailed info and interactive map is at the  site ( bikecanal), including suggested lodgings) or take one of the supporteded bike tours that are for groups or selfguided (Wilderness Voyageurs, Classic Adventures, SeniorCycling, Erie Canal Bike Tours), but there is something very special about camping out with hundreds of other people that adds an extra dimension to the experience (not to mention the cost is about one-half to one-third, all the special events and experiences that are organized for us, and supports the advocacy work of the organization). A novel way to do it is by houseboat through companies like Mid-Lakes Navigation Co., Ltd.

Break Free from Neuropathy with a New Supportive Care Cream A patented relief cream stands to help millions of Americans crippled from the side effects neuropathy by increasing sensation and blood flow wherever it’s applied Raymond Wilson The Associated Health Press AHP − A recent breakthrough stands to help millions of Americans plagued by burning, tingling and numb legs and feet. But this time it comes in the form of a cream, not a pill, suggesting the medical community may have been going about the problem all wrong. The breakthrough, called Diabasens, is a new relief cream developed for managing the relentless discomfort caused by neuropathy. When applied directly to the legs and feet, it causes arteries and blood vessels to expand, increasing the flow of warm, nutrient rich blood to damaged tissue. However, what’s most remarkable about the cream...and what makes it so that it contains one of the only natural substances known to activate a special sensory pathway right below the surface of the skin. This pathway is called TRAP1 and it controls the sensitivity of nerves. In laymen terms, it determines whether you feel pins and needles or soothing relief. Studies show that symptoms of neuropathy arise when the nerves in your legs deteriorate and blood flow is lost to the areas which surround them. As the nerves begins to die, sensation is lost. This lack of sensation is what causes the feelings of burning, tingling and numbness. This is why the makers of Diabasens say their cream has performed so well in a recent clinical use survey trial. It increases sensation and blood flow where ever its applied.

No Pills, No Prescriptions, No Agony Until now, many doctors have failed to consider a topical cream as an effective way to manage neuropathy. Diabasens is proving it may be the only way going forward. “Most of today’s treatment methods have focused on minimizing discomfort instead of attacking its underlining cause. That’s why millions of adults are still in excruciating pain every single day, and are constantly dealing with side effects” explains Dr. Esber, the creator of Diabasens. “Diabasens is different. Since the most commonly reported symptoms − burning, tingling and numb legs and feet − are caused by lack of sensation of the nerves, we’ve designed the formula increase their sensitivity. And since these nerves are located right below the skin, we’ve chosen to formulate it as a cream. This allows for the ingredients to get to them faster and without any drug like side effects” he adds.

Study Finds Restoring Sensation the Key To Effective, Long Lasting Relief With the conclusion of their latest human clinical use survey trial, Dr. Esber and his team are now offering Diabasens nationwide. And regardless of the market, its sales are exploding. Men and women from all over the country are eager to get their hands on the new cream and, according to the results initial users reported, they should be. In the trial above, as compared to baseline, participants taking Diabasens saw a staggering 51% increase sensitivity in just one week. This resulted in significant relief from burning, tingling and nubmness throughout their legs. Many participants taking Diabasens described feeling much more balanced and comfortable throughout the day. They also noticed that after applying, there was a pleasant warming sensation that was remarkably soothing.

Diabasens Users Demand More Many of Diabasens users say their legs have never felt better. For the first time in years, they are able to walk free from the symptoms which have made life hard. “I have been using the cream now for about ten days. It has given me such relief.  I’ve had very bad foot pain from injuries and overuse of my feet for years which have contributed to severe itching/tingling and pain for some time.  (My father also suffered from this pain and itching. I wish I would have had this for him.)  The first time I used the cream, I felt an almost immediate relief from this.  I now  use  it at least twice a day: once in the morning before work and once at night before I sleep.  I am so delighted with this.  It has helped my walking, also. It has helped generate feeling again in my feet,” raves Marsha A. from Texas

Diabasens is shown to provide relief from: • Burning • Swelling • Tingling • Heaviness • Numbness • Cold extremities Targets Nerve Damage Right Below the Skins Surface Diabasens is a topical cream that is to be applied to your legs and feet twice a day for the first two weeks then once a day after. It does not require a prescription.

Topical Creams Offer Sufferers a Safer, More Effective Avenue of Relief: Diabasens increases sensation and blood flow wherever its applied. It’s now being used to relieve painful legs and feet.

The active ingredient is a compound known as cinnamaldehyde. Studies show that neuropathy and nerve pain is caused when the peripheral nerves breakdown and blood is unable to circulate into your legs and feet. As these nerves deteriorate, sensation is lost. This is why you may not feel hot or cold and your legs and feet may burn, tingle and go numb. Additionally, without proper blood flow, tissues and cells in these areas begin to die, causing unbearable pain. The cinnamaldehyde in Diabasens is one of the only compounds in existence that can activate TRPA1, a special sensory pathway that runs through your entire body. According to research, activating this pathway (which can only be done with a cream) increases the sensitivity of nerves, relieving feelings of tingling and numbness in your legs and feet. Supporting ingredients boost blood flow, supplying the nerves with the nutrients they need for increased sensation.

Amazing Relief Exactly Where You Need It With daily use, Diabasens users report remarkable improvements in their quality of life without of the negative side effects or interactions associated with prescription drugs. Readers can now enjoy an entirely new level of comfort that’s both safe and affordable. It is also extremely effective, especially if nothing else has worked.

New healthy living business comes to Jericho Tpke. From page 1 interview with the Syosset Advance and Jericho Syosset News Journal, Bahal said he has learned from customers through listening and consulting his network in the area and beyond over the past 27 years. “When somebody comes to me with their specific medical condition(s) one of the things I have them do is bring their bloodwork and lab reports, along with lists of prescribed medications and treatments. After that I begin an official program that integrates medicine and vitamins into their healing process. If they have simpler problems we have condition-specific formulas to follow that will alieve that. We will start to do things that will be helpful for their health and the first step is to prevent or manage those conditions,” he said. “We will have health coaches, doctors who do genetic testing, testing for food allergies and other specific forms of testing. We will also host lectures in the store and do several community events. I am considered a legend on Long Island, helping people stay healthy for the past 27 years, and I look forward to partnering with the Syosset Woodbury Chamber of Commerce as we help and service the community’s needs,” Bahal said. “When we review the tests people can have any deficiencies addressed, and we formulate the level/dosage to bring them to the appropriate amounts. The best experience for any customer is a one-on-one interaction and we can show and demonstrate the variety and quality of products Healthquest Vitamins stocks, which is most important. The service we provide helps them manage their health and medical conditions and

work together with their doctors. The doctors will send them here because they know I will have the highest quality professional products,” he said. Kumar Bahal says most people he advises do not know the processes of metalation and detoxification. Many people have genetic mutations that do not allow them to detoxify properly, and that predisposes them to many different medical conditions. One issue he’s seen often is people simply not taking good care of their immune system. He says the result is clear with the prevalence of autoimmune cases and Early on Bahal had interest in a career in aviation, possibly as a commercial pilot, but he accepted a calling to serve the public through the vitamin/ health and well-being industry. “When I came to the U.S. as a young man my aunt passed away at age 30 from cervical cancer. In those days we did not see the research, and hers was a tough condition to accept. I kept working at a health food store and I met several people who had serious medical conditions, including famous people. Tennis legend Arthur Ashe (who had AIDS and died from AIDS-related pneumonia in 1993). I started reading so much and learning about different medical conditions throughout the years. In these past 25 to 30 years I have been fortunate to have helped many people get through various conditions, and they can turn to us for a lifetime of managing existing conditions and any issues they may be predisposed to face,” he said. Syosset’s Bagga Plaza on the north shore’s main thoroughfare is viewed as an ideal fit for the fitness and vitality Health Quest will aim to provide its customers. Their immediate neighbor in the shopping plaza is the Way of Life

and encourage young children to live a healthy lifestyle through her project “Healthy Body, Healthy Mind.” Iram partnered with elementary schools in her district to host educational sessions for third, fourth, and fifth-graders. Attendees completed fun activities and learned about the importance of eating healthy and exercising daily. Iram’s educational materials have been distributed to local libraries so more children and parents can learn about the importance and benefits of healthy eating. A recent graduate of Syosset High School, Iram was a member of the National Honor Society and debate team. Iram also held leadership posi-

tions in her school’s Latin Club and Women’s Club. She will attend New York University this fall. Her fondest Girl Scout memory was the annual camping trip her troop took where they would spend the whole weekend in nature without any distractions. Approximately 1 million Girl Scout alumnae have developed Gold Award projects that addressed local or global issues. After identifying an area of interest, a successful Gold Award recipient performs hours of research and prepares a project proposal to be submitted for feedback and approval to the Girl Scout Council before embarking on her project. The Girl Scout presents her final conclusions as the last step of the journey.

Kumar Bahal, owner of Healthquest Vitamins Healthy Cafe offering organic foods, juices and beverages, and Bahal likes the synergy of settling into the location. His store’s purple and gold signage, done by Universal Signs & Service in Deer Park, welcomes patrons into the atmosphere of good health and well-being as the easy access from Route 135,

Jericho Turnpike, South Oyster Bay Road and other major roads sets up a feasible shoppers’ destination. However Bahal tells the Advance heis looking forward to do more shipping of orders for all customers’ convenience, as Healthquest Vitamins will use an e-commerce website.
