POAs to choose trustee candidates January 17

WINNING STREAK CONTINUES

BY MEG MORGAN NORRIS

Garden City High School’s Boys Swimming and Diving team continued its streak with another win against Massapequa with a score of 93-84. See page 47 for full coverage

On Tuesday, January 17th, Garden City residents will choose their village trustees in accordance with Community Agreement, which was created in 1919. The Community Agreement provides a system for nominating candidates from each of the four Property Owners Associations so that all sections are represented on the Village Board. The Mayor’s seat rotates among the sections. During the meetings, candidates are put forward by each of the POAs nominating committees. However additional nominees may be proposed by members of the POA. If a challenge occurs, the POA would then hold a run-off election. The winner would then become the section’s candidate in the general election in March, which is governed by state law. Community Agreement Party candidates are then voted on by all Garden City voters. While the Community Agreement does not have the force of law, it has rarely been challenged during the general election, and never successfully. The POA meetings will be held on Tuesday, January 17th as follows (see page 14 for full details): Eastern POA: Senior Center on Golf Club Ln. - 7:30 p.m. Central POA: Senior Center on Golf Club Ln. - 7:30 p.m. Estates POA: Stratford School - 8 p.m. Western POA: Homestead School - 7:30 p.m.

What is Parent University?

Parent University is an evening setaside for parents and caregivers of children in grades Pre-K to 12 to participate in a series of workshops facilitated by area professionals and district personal. The free workshops are sponsored

by community organizations, including educators, to best reflect current topics and trends. It is an opportunity to sharpen parents’ skills as we work together to raise healthy, well-adjusted, and successful children. Studies prove when communities, caregivers, and educators work together to create supportive and safe environments for children to grow and learn – they thrive. Registration will be online only and will begin January 4th. Child care will be available for children ages 4 to 12. The Parent University’s planning committee consists of the efforts of Garden City community groups including the Community Coalition, Friends

of Music, Friends of STEM, Garden City Public Schools, GCPTA, GCSEPTA, Teacher’s Association and The Men’s Association. There are fourteen workshops to choose from with each being offered in both sessions. Session 1 is from 7:00-8:00pm and Session 2 is from 8:159:15pm. There is something for everyone! Parents of Pre-K – 5th grade parents may be interested in Mathematics, Computational Thinking, and Granola or The Parent Instructions that SHOULD come with a new device you give your child. Middle school parents can try Concrete Footprint – the impact of your child’s digital footprint or What’s Going

on in that Teenage Brain. High school parents may be interested in – But Mom …Reading is So Boring (or who has time to read?) or An Introduction to Tomorrow’s STEM Careers. Even folks with no children in the schools anymore would find the Mindfulness workshop is for them. See the complete list below and visit the Parent University website – www.gardencitypu.com for more info and to register. The full list of workshops includes: Clearing the Mind full of Mess: Mindfulness for Stress (Pre-k – 12th) Bringing Out the Leader in Your Child (3rd – 12th) See page 44

A WORD FROM THE PUBLISHER

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

More time to review DEIS

We were very happy to hear this week that Governor Cuomo listened to local officials who had asked for additional time to review the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the proposed LIRR third track project. The DEIS was only released in November and is over a thousand pages, much of it technical. Originally, the state was only going to allow comments until January 31st, but just this week Cuomo announced that the comment period will be extended until February 15th. The Village of Garden City, along with New Hyde Park and Floral Park, hired a consultant to help them under-

stand the document, which is a step in the right direction. While Governor Cuomo claims that the project won’t have very detrimental impacts on the communities surrounding the tracks, we think it’s right to let people see the studies and decide for themselves. To learn more about the project and to download the DEIS document, go online to www.amodernli.com . You can submit comments on the site or by email to info@amodernli.com . Six public hearings will be held during Jaunary 17 - 19th. The full schedule is also available at the same web site.

What does “IHS” mean?

To the Editor: Please allow a correction to the text accompanying the photo of the cornerstone of the Cathedral of the Incarnation in your January 6th issue [“The Kordes Korner” column]. To wit: the letters “IHS” seen in churches, ecclesiastical artwork and literature do not stand for “In His Service.” They are Roman alphabet letters derived from the Greek, and are an abbreviated form of the name “Jesus.” Anthony S. Carroll Editor’s note: We checked with the author, John Kordes, and he contacted Dean Michael Sniffen of the Cathedral of the Incarnation, who gave the following response: “The monogram IHS comes from the Greek for Jesus, IHESUS, or from the Latin Ihesus Hominum Salvator, which is, Jesus, Savior of Mankind. (Jesus was the name of a religious person.) A modern interpretation is “In His Service.”

To the Editor: The Church of St. Joseph will be sending a 45-parishioner delegation to represent the parish at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Friday, January 27, 2017, the 44th memorial anniversary of the Supreme Court’s abortion rulings. March for Life organizers expect a throng of 600,000 faithfilled Americans who seek the legal protection of preborn human life. The day promises to be peaceful, prayerful and patriotic. Our parish has reserved a motor coach to transport us to the nation’s capital. On the morning of the March for Life, before we depart for Washington, a special 5 AM Mass in the church will be celebrated by our Respect Life Ministry and Knights of Columbus moderator, Fr. Greg Breen, and assisted by Deacon Jack McKenna. Since the January 22, 1973 abortion decisions, Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton, more than 58 million innocent preborn children have been killed by abortion. That averages nearly three babies killed

every minute of every hour of every day for the past 44 years. The massive March for Life rally on the Washington National Mall will run from noon to 1 PM and will be led by prominent prolife leaders and members of the clergy, as well as prolife members of Congress. After the rally, the marchers will process up Constitution Avenue to the Capitol, filling the avenue from curb to curb with prolife Americans from every state and many foreign countries. On Capitol Hill, at the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court, marchers will pause to hear riveting Silent No More testimonials from women and men who now regret their abortion decisions. Thereafter, our delegation will visit the offices of our congressional representatives, urging them to support legislation that will protect the preborn babies. We will be the voices for the innocent. Our motor coach will make a mid-morning rest stop on the way to Washington and a dinner stop on the return trip to Garden City. We will arrive home at St. Joseph’s church by 10:30 PM, exhilarated and inspired, having been part of the holy and just cause for life. If you have never witnessed a March for Life, consider attending on Friday, January 27. The day will be filled with long-remembered sights and sounds of joy and prayerful purpose. This year the March for Life leaders have spotlighted the words of famed author J.R.R. Tolkien to underscore the intrinsic value of each human life.

The nonprofit Garden City Friends of STEM has once again joined with the award-winning Revel Restaurant and Bar, located at 835 Franklin Avenue in Garden City, to invite the community to an evening of food, drink and live jazz music that will raise funds for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education and robotics programs in Garden City. The event will take place on Friday, January 20, 2017 from 8:00 to 11:00 pm. Tickets, at $65 per person, include beer and wine and Executive Chef Mario Lopez’s selection of hors d’oeuvres, as well as jazz music courtesy of the Music Academy of Garden City. The 143-seat restaurant, featuring a locally-sourced, globally-inspired American cuisine, drew rave reviews after opening in Garden City in 2013 and its most recent accolades include the 2016 Five Star Diamond Award by the American Academy of Hospitality. The New York Times, in giving Revel a three-star ‘Very Good’ rating, noted, “The restaurant is attractive and the management is experienced, but it is the food that counts.”

The event is part of Garden City Friends of STEM’s current yearly fundraising drive to support robotics and STEM education, programs, and activities for students in the Garden City school district and community. Thanks to last year’s generous outpouring of funding from the community, the organization was able to help support the creation of a robotics team at Garden City High School, as well as two teams at Garden City Middle School, funded two scholarships, donated a 3D printer for Project Lead the Way, gave books to the primary schools and hosted several local STEM seminars for the community. “We are proud to host another fundraiser here at Revel,” said Executive Director Patricia Lynch. “It is a beautiful place and the restaurant has been so enthusiastic and helpful, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with them. Everyone had a wonderful time last year, and we look forward to another enjoyable evening that also benefits a great cause – our kids.” To purchase tickets or to donate, as well as learn more about the organization, please visit www.gcfstem.org or like us on Facebook.

THE VIEW FROM HERE

A January Perspective BY BOB MORGAN, JR. I’ve written a number of columns about different months over the years, but I don’t think I’ve ever written about January. Until now. I can’t say that January is my favorite month, but it is a pretty significant one. It’s the coldest month of the year in most parts of the United States, including the Northeast, and, unless you are a winter outdoor sports enthusiast, you probably don’t look forward to the frigid wind blasts, icy roads and storms that can result in major snow accumulations but more often pockets of slush . There are even health risks associated with January weather like the flu and slips and falls on the sidewalk. Not a few people are counting the days until, say, mid-March, when there is at least a hint of spring. On the flip side, there is something refreshing about a crisp clear January day if the temperature is not too low. Also, January begins after the winter solstice and the days are slowly getting longer as the month progresses. People in these parts who are not happy about the weather often dream of warm temperature locations and a few fortunate working folks (and a good number of retired ones) manage to get away to some beach destination where they can sip a cool beverage on the sand amid a tropical breeze. (The three day Martin Luther King weekend, in addition to honoring a great man, often is a good time for a getaway.) After the return , even a minor tan draws envious comments. Most of us, however, are pretty much left to stay around for the month and act jealous of those who have taken a holiday. For the stay at homes, there is at least some good sports on television. The NFL playoffs, often contested in frigid venues like Green Bay and Foxboro, feature some memorable performances (despite occasional miserable showings like the Giants’ collapse last Sunday) as the teams are whittled down to the two Super Bowl contestants. In recent years, the college football championship

has been contested on a Monday night in January, usually in a palm tree laden venue. Golf is frequently shown, with players teeing off in some lush location and tennis fans watch the Australian Open. Sports interest among fans also shifts more to basketball and hockey, sports that are now in mid-season But what probably sets January apart from the rest of the year is that is there is distinct seriousness of purpose in the month. It begins, often after a liquid celebration, with the hope of a new year and most of us make at least some resolution, whether it relates to health (like losing some weight or getting over to the gym), finances, personal relationships or some other area where improvement is needed. Obviously, not all resolutions are persevered with, but they do afford us some opportunity for reflection. Like September after the summer holidays, but even more so, January is a back to business month. The rush of holiday parties, shopping and family obligations that cover December is now over, and businesses tend to get more serious. Long delayed hiring decisions are often made by companies and new projects commenced. Students are mostly back in school, sometimes for exams, sometimes to begin a new semester. January is also the beginning of the political year. Candidates elected in November begin their term and the Congress and legislatures around the country begin their sessions. Once every four Januaries a President is inaugurated on the steps of the Capitol in Washington and most years there is a State of the Union address. When there is a change of party (as there is this year), this is accompanied by great hopes and great trepidation. Again, January is probably not a month that many people put near the top of their list of favorite times. But despite that, quite a bit of importance happens during these often frigid 31 days

entire staff provided us with exceptional, attentive and very personal service. We felt unrushed, respected and most importantly, confident that our Brother would be well taken care of.” - A Family from Garden City, 2016

THE OFFICE CAT BY GABBY TABBY No interlock: On January 4th a joint investigation by Garden City Police Officers and Nassau County Probation on County Seat Drive resulted in the arrest of a 32 year old Lynbrook woman for allegedly failing to use a court ordered interlock device while operating a motor vehicle. The interlock had been ordered due to a prior DWI arrest. Leaving the scene: On January 4th Garden City Police arrested a 52 year old Long Beach woman for allegedly leaving the scene of an auto accident that occurred on Old Country Road on December 13th. Vehicle damaged: On January 4th someone damaged the windows to a vehicle parked in Chester Parking Field and removed a pocketbook. Overexposure: On January 5th a 15 year old girl reported that a man exposed himself to her. The girl was walking her dog on Chestnut Street at 3:45 PM when a black 4 door sedan approached her and the male driver asked her directions to the nearest train station while exposing himself in a lewd manner. Accident with injuries: On January 6th Garden City Police responded to a three vehicle accident at Cathedral Ave at 3rd St at 1:20 PM. Police say four people were injured and transported to a local hospital. In addition, a Village tree was damaged. Suspicious bag: On January 6th at 7:10 PM, police responded to a call from a Garden City School Security officer regarding a suspicious package on the grounds of the Stratford School. Officers inspected a bag, which was determined to contain equipment belonging to one of the school district’s sports teams. School security took possession of the bag. Car damaged: On January 7th at

12:30 PM, the owner of a 2011 Jeep Wrangler discovered that the passenger side window had been slashed, and the interior had been rifled through. Nothing appeared to be missing. The last time the owner had seen the vehicle intact was about two weeks prior. Is your ferret missing? On January 7th at about 12:35 PM, a resident of Washington Ave found a ferret at his rear door and took it in. A ferret rescue association in Long Beach was contacted and will take possession of the animal in 3-4 days if not claimed. Anyone with information should contact GCPD. Snow storm: During the snow storm on January 7th Garden City Police responded to several auto accidents. Numerous motorists were also assisted when their vehicles became stuck or disabled. Happy reunion: On January 8th a resident found a dog on Stewart Ave and brought it into Police Headquarters. Within an hour, the rightful owner contacted GCPD and was reunited with his pet. (Let’s hope the ferret has the same luck.) New officers: Garden City Police will have three new officers shortly. One officer will be attending the Police Academy in Westchester. Two officers were hired from NYPD and will begin field training immediately. Flying table: On January 9th at about 8:50 AM, a GC Sanitation worker was struck by a piece of a table ejected from the sanitation truck he was working on. He was transported to Winthrop Hospital with neck and back injuries. Unlicensed truck driver: On January 10th at about 3 PM, PO Wehr arrested a 49 year old Bronx man for alleged aggravated unlicensed operation of a truck on Clinch road.

THIS WEEK AT ROTARY

Autoseum – Garden City’s Best Kept Secret Fascinating! That’s the word that best describes Autoseum’s Vice President Andy Perillo’s presentation for the Mineola-Garden City Rotary Club at this week’s meeting on January 9, at the Garden City Hotel In various facets of the movie industry for the past 55 years, Andy Perillo spoke with passion about this unique teaching museum. Founded in 2008 by Andy and President Mike Manning, Autoseum is Garden City’s best kept secret. Located at 100 County Seat Drive, (technically in Garden City, but with a Mineola address), Autoseum teaches craftsmanship involved in the creation of the world’s most famous movie cars. In the Hotel’s packed Wine Room,

Andy Perillo told the crowd of Rotarians and guests of his life-long friendship and association with George Barris known as the “King of Kustomizers” and creator of the Batmobile, the Monkee Mobile, the Green Hornet Car, Munster Mobile, Flintstone Mobile and many other renowned movie cars including the Aston Martin driven by James Bond in Goldfinger, on display with many other movie cars at the Autoseum. Andy serves as east coast representative of George Barris. With passion, Andy, who is portrayed to be the fastest car builder and special effects creator in the world, told of Autoseum’s partnership with Nassau Boces and the educational courses provided to teach and direct the younger

generation away from some of today’s “temptations” and toward career opportunities in the entertainment industry. So fascinated were Club members by this unique and special (501(C)(3) museum, that the Club plans to travel to Autoseum for an upcoming meeting. For more information, visit www.autoseum.org. Rotary meets on alternate Mondays in the Wine Room of the Garden City Hotel, 12:15-1:30 pm. The Club is proud to announce that it welcomed 7 new members during 2016 – reported to be the largest membership increase of any club in its 7255 District. With 42 members, the Mineola-Garden City Rotary Club is also reported to be the largest club in the District. If interested in information about mem-

bership, please call Susan MacDonald at (515) 643-52-86.

It’s time to tease up your hair and put on your dancing shoes! Two Garden City High School students are set to star in Plaza Theatrical’s production of Hairspray on January 21 at 7pm and January 22 at 2pm. Winner of eight Tony Awards, Hairspray is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs such as “You Can’t Stop the Beat”, “Welcome to the 60’s!” and “Good Morning Baltimore”. Juniors Annalise LoBiondo and Tommy Flanagan star as Tracy and Link in this exhilarating production that is sure to have you dancing in the aisles. It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has only one desire – to dance on the popular “Corny Collins Show.” When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from

social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network... all without denting her ‘do! Plaza Theatrical Productions, Long Island’s largest touring theater company, has been mounting fully-staged professional productions to the New York area since 1983. Executive Producer Kevin F. Harrington directs the production with choreography by Cara Leggio and musical direction by Alan Kingsley. Tickets are $15 and can by purchased at the door or by calling (516) 599-6870.

GCHS students to perform in Plaza Theatricals “Hairspray”

The Community Club enjoyed a talk by Grace Rowan RN, MSN (second from the left)

Community Club enjoys introduction to Tai Chi

On Wednesday, January 4th Club members enjoyed an introduction to Tai Chi given by two of Winthrop’s Outreach Nurse Educators, Grace Rowan & Susan Hannon. Tai Chi is a non-completive, self-paced system of gentle exercise and stretching. The group seemed very impressed to learn that performing Tai Chi on a regular basis can have a positive impact on improving your overall health, balance and one’s ability to do daily tasks.

The Nurses announced that there will be classes offered twice weekly in March and April at the Winthrop Wellness Pavilion, 1300 Franklin Ave, Garden City. A number of the members are looking forward to signing up. Refreshments were served after the program. Anyone interested in learning more about the Community Club can call the Club Office at 516-746-0488, Tues thru Thurs from 9:30 am to 12:30pm.

Churches are usually not torn down but rather preserved by their congregations. However, this church on Franklin Avenue and Fifth Street was indeed torn down in the 1950’s. This is the original St. Joseph’s Catholic Church built around 1903. It was the first church built in Garden City following the completion of the Cathedral of the Incarnation in 1885. By the 1950’s the growing Catholic population needed a larger St. Joseph’s Church, and so this one was torn down and the current larger church was built on the same site. Today, Garden City has ten houses of worship.

Film to be shown at St. Joseph’s On Sunday, January 22, at 2 p.m. the St. Joseph Parish Adult Faith Formation Board will present the film “A Time For Miracles.” This is the unique and inspiring story of Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American-born citizen to become a saint. Born in 1774, Elizabeth Bayley grew up Protestant in the upper class of New York society. At age 20, she married the wealthy William Seton, and they had 5 children together. When William’s business and health failed, and he died of tuberculosis, Elizabeth was introduced to and eventually embraced the Catholic faith. Her family’s reaction was the beginning of the anti-Catholic prejudice she would continue to face, along with the prospect of raising her children in poverty. With help from some members of the clergy, but largely

based on her own faith and determination, Elizabeth went on to start the first free Catholic school in America, form a religious order, and establish 2 orphanages and another school, while experiencing the overwhelming tragedy of losing 3 children to tuberculosis, a disease that eventually took her own life at age 46. The movie stars Kate Mulgrew as Elizabeth, with a supporting cast including Jean Pierre Aumont, Rossano Brazzi, Lorne Greene and Jean Le Clerc. The film will be shown on Sunday, January 22, at 2 p.m. in the St. Agnes Room This is the second of the 2016-2017 series “Movies for a Sunday Afternoon.” Admission is free. All are welcome. A discussion will follow the showing and light refreshments will be served.

We create a better environment for learning. Rooted in kindness and respect, the ethos of a Catholic school emerges from the fact that students know that God loves them and that they are precious in His eyes. That they are accepted for who they really are. Uniforms remove many of the surface-level distractions of social status and peer pressure, and children learn that their value is not based on how others see them but on God’s always faithful love for them.

ONE SOUTH AVENUE, GARDEN CITY, NY 11530

Do you remember the tune - it started off with “Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful!” Well, it seems that we had some of that on Saturday because when I woke up on Sunday morning that is what I saw. Now, before you say something about it - I have to tell you this is nothing. A long time ago we had a storm to end all storms. There was no bus service from Jamaica Station. You had no taxis either. It was down to walking from Jamaica to Garden City and it was still snowing while we did it. I do not think that anyone would like to try that again and I am very sure that I would not want to. But, we walkers all made it along Hempstead Turnpike and were happy to see the light by the door that meant that we would be safe and sound. Actually, this did happen twice in my lifetime of commuting. As I look up at my wall calendar it shows Mount Vernon with the roof and the lawn all covered with snow. After all - its winter and what can you expect! This is also the time when plans have to be changed. Even if the snow is plowed away, for many it is too difficult to park and get over the snow to the shoveled walks, and it could still be slippery. Thank heaven for the folks who come around with their shovels to clean the walks. Years ago there were sidewalk plows from the Village that did that service. They did have to have a certain amount of snow on the walks to do this but it was nice. That time is over but there are many boys and girls who do come to fill the void. From now on you should also listen for cancellations of events you planned to go to. January is not a total loss. If you belong to the Community Club of Garden City and Hempstead you can plan on seeing the movie “Tea with Mussolini” on Wednesday, January 18th at 1:30 p.m. at the Garden City

Casino. From what they tell me it is a story of civil disobedience and it had a good rating. Tea and coffee will be served following the program and that will give you time to discuss the movie and the times it portrayed. Also make sure you have your reservations in for that Club’s Mid-Winter Bridge and Games and Lunch on Monday, January 23rd at the Orchid Restaurant starting at 12 noon. Contact either Carolyn Kaiser or Janice Salem to see if you can attend. Paula Rega and Louise Abitabile will hostess an Art Department program on January 26th at 1:30 p.m. on Maxfield Parrish: Paintings and Prints, also at the Garden City Casino. If you are not a member there is a $5 guest fee. The Garden City Country Club is now closed until very early in March so this is the time to take advantage of some programs right here in town, including bridges. Our Garden City Library will be hosting a number of very good programs as they do all during the year. They do have a wide variety of them and will be happy to tell you about them. In addition, they also have a movie program Check it out! I think you will be happy with the Garden City snow removal program, as you see the streets are in good shape if you have to get some supplies. We do not want to fall and be put out of action for a number of weeks. As you can see - things will be in quiet mode until the snow goes away. So give a call if you were planning to attend an event to see if it is going to be on or not. Now just enjoy looking at it as it will be gone sooner than you think. See you next week.

“Jungle Book” Cycling Adventure Into Tiger Territory of India

BY KAREN RUBIN When I signed on to Royal Expeditions’ new “Jungle Book Wildlife Safari & Cycling Adventure” in India, I couldn’t believe or even visualize the concept of cycling through a wildlife sanctuary populated with tigers, leopards, sloth bears, wild dogs, langur monkeys and jackals. And Royal Expeditions which devised this innovative, out-of-the-box trip, set in the same region as Rudyard Kipling’s beloved 1895 story, didn’t ask how fast I could ride (or, for that matter, whether I had any experience in single-track off-road biking). But here I am, on a rough cut, overgrown, rolling trail that serves as a forest corridor between the two national parks known for tigers – Pench and Kanha – where animals, including tigers, roam freely. This is confirmed when a naturalist who rides along with us points out tiger pugmarks (paw prints) in a sandy section of the trail we are riding. At one point, I find myself (inexplicably) well ahead of our group (which has as many guides, cycle experts and leaders as we tourists), including a jeep and a van loaded with supplies with snacks and our lunch that will be set up at the end of a ride in a guesthouse. Here I am, in a stretch of high, dense grass that reaches up to my

knee, with dense forest on both sides. I decide this isn’t the place to be alone – after all, the naturalist said that the tigers who live here (there are 8 who live in the corridor, and about 120 between the two national parks) are craftier, more intelligent, because they have less food (that is, not as many deer and monkeys to

munch), that they take advantage of the denser forest growth to surprise their prey, and are less used to humans (which I take to mean less afraid of humans and I am not particularly reassured that tigers don’t like the smell or taste of humans – how do they know?). Putting that together, I realize I am

the slowest prey around, so I ride back to meet up with the riders, recalling that old adage: you don’t have to be the fastest, just faster than someone else. That thought plays around in my mind, adding to the adventure and sense of bravery – courage – that See page D2

“Jungle Book” Cycling Adventure Into Tiger Territory of India Continued from page D1

I’ve known only a couple of times in my life – that makes the exhilaration you feel after the ride- and not just from the physical challenge – all the sweeter and richer. It’s a sense of personal triumph, of overcoming fear (of course, the danger was minimized by the safari vehicles which followed us and the guides who accompanied us, outnumbering our small band, not to mention we are here in mid-day when the scariest animals are least likely to be out and about and hunting. Still. That 25 km ride proves the most challenging cycling of Royal Expeditions’ unique and creative “Jungle Book Wildlife Safari & Cycling” tour. Vishal Singh, who designed the trip, said it was more challenging than expected because it was so soon after the rainy season. But it is exhilarating and thrilling and totaling fabulous – that sense of actual adventure and physical challenge – that also includes crossing a stream (I chicken out and find a place to walk across rocks).

Biking through the Forest Corridor linking Pench and Kanha National Parks in central India, populated with tigers, leopards, sloth bears, wild dogs, langur monkeys and jackals © 2016 Karen Rubin/goingplacesfarandnear.com Most of the rides we take are challenging in their own way, but go

through villages and past farms, giving us a unique perspective on local life. The itinerary is set in the same region that provided the setting for Rudyard Kipling’s “Jungle Book” which he published in 1895, in central India, cycling through the same jungles (the word is Hindi for “forest”). This corridor, we are told, plays an important part in the conservation of the tigers - by linking the two national parks, which between them have about 120 tigers, helps promote diversity in the gene pool, and provides protected habitat for their long-term survival. Other tiger habitats in India are fast

becoming islands and there is little change in genetic pool of the tiger population. The landscape also supports diverse land use, and traditional forest dwelling tribal communities. Our visit, we are told, also has the function of raising awareness among local communities of the part they play in wildlife conservation (indeed, just days after our visit, Vishal Singh is leading a 160 km fundraising ride that goes along the entire forest corridor linking Pench and Kanha, to supply locals with smart phones so they can alert authorities to poaching). A safari vehicle and van follow behind us (in case somebody can’t finish the ride). Every time we stop, a couple of fellows guys jump out, smartly dressed in their Pench Tree Lodge uniforms, and refill our water bottles, offer drinks in glasses, and offer snacks on a silver tray. Our ride is accompanied by Sagor Mahajan, our naturalist from the Pench Tree Lodge, who stops along the way (as much as to give us a rest as to impart wisdom) to point out spiders interesting trees and plants , and tell us about work been done by conservation organizations to save this critical landscape. For once in my life, I’m more fascinated than afraid of these gigantic insects: he points to a funnel web spider which makes an elaborate funnel and lives inside; and a giant (really gigantic) female wood spider (the male is much smaller and the female eats the male after mating unless there is some better food available). He says they make bullet-proof jackets out of

its web that is four times stronger than stainless steel. He points out Wandering Gliders - dragonflies that are the longest migrating insect, traveling from India to southern Africa, taking four to five generations to cover the distance; many bird species depend on the migrating gliders for food. As for how they know where to go? The wind temperature and humidity give them the direction and some suggest that the magnetic induction of the earth plays a part, like for sea turtles. He points out lichen on a tree, which is a sign that there is no pollution in this forest (significant considering that while we are in India, New Delhi has had to close its schools because the air pollution is so severe); indeed, the clear, crisp air is one of the reasons so many Indian people escape to these parks for relief. When we come upon tiger pugmarks, he shows us how to identify that it is male (more rounded toes), while the female’s is more pointed.

I learn that tigers are endangered while leopards are not, and it has a lot to do with the way they have evolved. Leopards can climb trees so have access to more prey like monkeys, and hunt mainly at night. A tiger male will only mate with a few females, and if she has cubs, will kill them in order to mate. The last 5 K of the 25K ride takes us through villages and passed farms where we watch people working in the fields, using scythes to cut down rice, and plows pulled by bulls. Our ride ends at the Sakata Forest Rest House, built in 1903 for the officers who patrolled the area (tourists can rent rooms here), where the staff of the Pench Tree Lodge sets up a fantastic lunch which we enjoy under a thatch-covered pavilion. We are among the first to do this cycling trip through this sanctuary – when you think about it, people are not allowed out of the safari vehicles otherwise, but here we are, on our bikes, or walking about with nothing between us and the wild animals who live here.

Vishal Singh, the managing director of Royal Expeditions, who accompanies us on this trip, has used his personal connections (his company was founded by a royal family of Jodhpur and connected to a Princess who also served in Parliament and as the Minister of Culture), to convince the officials who control the sanctuary to issue permits for our cycling adventure. Some experiences are billed as “adventure” and wind up being as tame as a Disney themepark ride (though I have new respect for Disney’s Animal Kingdom safari ride). This really is adventure – even more than I had imagined it would be – actual mountain biking where we need to navigate rocks, sand, gravel, ruts, tall grass, descents and some climbs, and a small stream. After lunch, Vishal offers us the option of biking back along the same forest corridor – that is, 25K back, and this time, mostly uphill through the same high grass and broken, sandy and gravel trail. Not to mention it is

already about 3 pm in the afternoon and it took about 4 hours to get here. We are really quite tuckered from what we have done, so everyone opts to pile onto the safari vehicle which has followed after us, along with the van that has been carrying the bike trailer (in case someone couldn’t finish the ride). We take satisfaction in the fact that it is even a difficult, rumbling ride back in the vehicle – and really can’t believe we did this by bike. Pench Tree Lodge

What makes the experience all the more special are the accommodations: My room at Pench Tree Lodge (www. PenchTreeLodge) which only opened in 2016, is literally a tree house, built of all natural materials, but with stunning design, local and traditional art, and every comfort and amenity you could crave.

On the 2016-17 Hofstra basketball season BY LOU THEODORE Thanksgiving and Christmas is now a near distant memory. What’s the significance? It primarily means one thing for basketball buffs in the Nassau County area: the 2016-17 Hofstra basketball season is now in full swing. Every year, at about this time, I introduce the readers to Hofstra’s men’s basketball team and start the prediction process for the season. This year is no different – so here goes… I begin with some comments about last year’s team. There were concerns, hopes, and expectations: third year Coach Joe Mihalich was back with a team that featured Juan‘ya Green and Ameen Tanksley – the two Niagara University transfers and Brian Bernardi, plus power forward Princeton transferee Denton Koon and second year center Rokas Gustys. So what happened? They had a great season, winning the CAA (Colonial Athletic Association). The CAA tournament was up for grabs and I felt they had a chance to win it and earn a berth in the NCAA tournament. We were at the CAA tournament during March 4 -7 at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore when they ran out of gas (as I had predicted earlier) in the championship game. Nonetheless, it was a pleasant vacation and an exciting four days. This year’s tournament is scheduled in Charleston, S.C., and it is currently on

our radar screen. Three of last year’s super starting five are gone. As a former educator, I’m always interested in the disposition of the players once they graduate. It was tough getting straight answers this year but this is what I know at this point in time: Koon is playing somewhere in Europe, with Green and Tanksley playing (I hope) in the NBA Developmental League. This year’s team? Here is my analysis at the time of the posting of this article (December 25). The loss of last year’s BIG three was indeed BIG – the two top scorers (including Player of the Year Green) and the power forward. The team had a decent recruiting year. (Note: Every team claims they had a great recruiting year, so I no longer believe these press releases.) Notable additions include Deron Power (Hampton transfer), Eli Pemberton (freshman), Hunter Sabety (Tufts transfer), and Ty Greer (Daytona State transfer). Notable returnees – in addition to Gustys and Bernardi – include Desure Buie (out for year), Justin WrightForeman, and Jamall Robinson. Are there any concerns? Should there be concerns? The answer is YES. The team is presently in a developmental stage and only time will tell to what degree they will develop and improve. They have demonstrated an ability to score – sometime almost at will, but the defense is still somewhat porous. For

example, they were unable to adjust and negate St. Bonaventure’s two excellent guards during an earlier loss. And, to compound this problem, the team continues to primarily play zone defense which has had a definite negative impact on their performance. On the positive side is that Coach Mihalich is playing 8 players, so fatigue will not be a problem this season. More on this year’s personnel. All the noise is about freshman Eli Pemberton. Mihalich claims he will have a super career at Hofstra. An NBA scout told me that Pemberton’s number will be hanging from the rafters at the end of his collegiate career. He is a great scorer but (contrary to Mihalich’s comments) is short on speed and defense--but I have been wrong many times in the past. I believe that Hofstra’s hopes this year lie with two others. Powers is the fastest guard I have seen in years--he is grease lightening. What an absolute great addition to the backcourt. Ty Greer is listed at 6’6” but I think is 6’8” tall (and growing?) with a long wingspan and tremendous leaping ability. He’s the sleeper. However, I have repeatedly claimed that it is great guards that get a team to a championship game, but it is great defensive guards that get you to the Promised Land; i.e., win a championship. I’m not sure that Mihalich has someone to fill that role. Bottom line: this may be Hofstra’s year. They

are off to a mediocre start, boasting (at the time of submission) a (9-8) overall record and (1-3) in the CAA. I still like their chances. Then again, it may turn out to be a rebuilding season for a host of reasons. Attending Hofstra games for me still remains the best sports buy in the New York Metropolitan area; its’s even cheaper than going to the movies. There is ample free parking, easy access in and out of the Mack Sports Complex, the concession stands are not a rip-off ($3.50 for a dog, $3.00 for a soda, etc.), and there isn’t a bad seat in the house. Did I mention that its $6 for seniors and children, and the whole exciting atmosphere is conducive to family attendance? I don’t think this is an exaggeration, but almost every home game last year turned out to be a thriller. It was raw excitement. Share it with someone you care about. In the meantime, my Basketball Coaching 101 book is still out in the marketplace at either amazon.com or createspace.com for $17.95. It makes an excellent New Year’s/post-Christmas gift. Consider buying the book – I really do need the royalty money to help subsidize my gambling habits.

Turning 66 in 2017? Consider Filing for Benefits this Month BY TOM MARGENAU

I write a column similar to this one every January. But I don’t mind plagiarizing myself because it contains a very important message for people planning to retire in 2017. January is a critical month for the hundreds of thousands of potential Social Security beneficiaries who are reaching 66, their so-called full retirement age, in 2017. The important message: Most of them should consider filing for their benefits this month, even though they may not reach their retirement age until later in the year. Please note: This technique should not be employed by folks who plan to use the soon-to-disappear maximizing strategy called “file and restrict” (still available to people turning 66 in 2017) because that procedure requires you to wait until age 66 or later before filing for benefits. If you want to delay filing for your own Social Security benefits until age 70 to get a 32 percent delayed retirement bonus, then you also should forgo the procedure discussed in this column. But if you are not interested in either of those strategies, and plan to start your benefits at 66 in 2017, then, as I said, you may want to file for benefits in January. The reason for this early filing timeframe has to do with some quirky and complicated features of Social Security’s earnings penalty provisions. Those provisions generally keep seniors who are still working off of Social Security’s rolls until they reach that magic “full retirement age.” The law essentially says if you are over 62 but under your full retirement age and are still working full time, you are not eligible for Social Security. Specifically, the rules require that the SSA deduct $1 from any retirement benefits you might be due for every $2 you earn over $16,920 in 2017. However, the rules say that once you reach your full retirement age, you are due full Social Security benefits, even if you are still working and no matter how much money you are making. We’ll follow an example. Let’s say Ed was born in July 1951, which means he’ll reach his full retirement age of 66 in July 2017. And let’s further say Ed generally makes about $80,000 per year, and he plans to continue working indefinitely. Based on the earnings penalty rules I briefly outlined above, Ed figures he must wait until July (his full retirement age) to begin collecting his Social Security benefits. As I said, at that magical point, the earnings penalty rules no longer apply and he can get his Social Security. And prior to that, he’s making way more than the $16,920 income threshold.

But here is why Ed should check into applying for Social Security in January. Congress set up a more lenient earnings threshold for the year you reach your full retirement age. Specifically, it says you can earn up to $44,880 between January and the month you reach your full retirement age and still get Social Security benefits. And even if you earn more than $44,880, you lose only $1 from your benefits for every $3 you exceed that threshold. Ed is going to make $40,000 between January and June (i.e., before he reaches the magic age of 66). And that’s under the $44,880 threshold for 2017, which means Ed is due benefits beginning in January. He does NOT have to wait until July to apply for his Social Security checks. There is a bit of a catch. By starting his benefits in January, Ed will be accepting a slightly reduced amount. (Benefits are reduced roughly one-half of one percent for each month they are taken before full retirement age.) If Ed’s Social Security benefit at full retirement age is $2,000 per month, let’s look at his options. Ed’s first option is to wait until July (his full retirement age) to start his Social Security benefits. He’ll get $2,000 per month for six months or $12,000 for the year 2017. Ed’s second option is to file for Social Security in January. By starting his benefits slightly early, his monthly rate is reduced to $1,940. That comes out to $23,280 in total benefits for the year 2017. The downside to option two is his ongoing monthly benefit rate will be $1,940, $60 less than what he would have been getting in option one. But because he’d be getting about $11,000 less in total 2017 benefits in option one, it would take Ed a long time to make up that loss with his extra $60 per month in ongoing benefits. If I were Ed, I’d choose the second option. Even if Ed was going to make more than the $44,880 income threshold between January and June, he only loses one dollar in Social Security benefits for each three dollars he exceeds that amount. So he probably still comes out ahead by filing in January. Here is a quick example using that scenario. Let’s say Ed will make $50,000 between January and June. That’s $5,120 over the $44,880 limit. And onethird of that excess, or about $1,707, must be deducted from his 2017 benefits. But he would still get $21,573 in benefits for the year. That’s still way better than the $12,000 he would be due by waiting until July to file for his Social Security. I know these rules are complicated, and the math in the examples above might be difficult to follow. But my overall message is easy to follow: If

you’re reaching age 66 in 2017, talk to a Social Security representative sometime this month to find out if it’s to your advantage to file for those benefits in January.

“Jungle Book” Cycling Adventure Into Tiger Territory of India C ontinued from page D3 16 acres (including a fantastic lapsize swimming pool (so much fun to swim and watch the green parakeets flying above). Meals, prepared by a sensational chef, Pankaj Fulera, (he was runner-up for Best India Chef and is equally adept at traditional Indian cuisine as fusion Continental, are served in a charming dining lodge where there are also lovely sitting areas. One night, they set up a dinner outside, under the boughs of a tree I call the Tree of Life, with firelight. Pench Tree Lodge is located near the Karmajhiri gate into Pench National Park, which is gets a lot less tourist traffic and you really feel immersed in local life. The forest region (“jungle” is the Hindi word for forest) is where Rudyard Kipling set his story of Mowgli, the boy raised by wolves, and his nemesis, Shere Khan, the tiger. During the course of our visit in Pench, which includes game drives into Pench National Park, we see

many of the characters that populated his story and the landscape in which they thrived. Later, I learn that there may be some truth to the legend.

5 Reasons to Give Kids an Allowance BY MARY HUNT At the foundation of your children’s financial intelligence should be this undeniable truth: It is not the amount of money you have but what you do with it that matters. This is true for a child managing a $5 weekly allowance and a corporate executive with a $5,000 weekly salary. For many years of my life, I didn’t know this truth. On the contrary, I believed that more money was the answer. I was convinced that if we just made more money, won the lottery or received some unexpected inheritance, all of our money problems would vanish. But the more we made, the worse our problems became. Because I didn’t know how to manage what we had, more would have never been enough. We didn’t save. We didn’t give. We didn’t plan. And we had no idea where all the money went. Unless your children learn simple wise money management techniques, more money will never be enough. The simplest way to get started building financial intelligence in your kids’ minds and hearts is by putting them on an allowance and requiring them to either suffer or enjoy the financial consequences of their decisions. An allowance teaches kids about real

life. With their own money, kids learn about responsibilities, consequences, saving and charity. An allowance helps them learn how to distinguish needs from wants. Having their own money forces kids to think about what to spend it on. An allowance puts an end to the nickel-and-diming. You create a set budget item called “Kids’ Allowances,” and that stops the constant drip, drip, drip of money flowing from your pocket and going toward random stuff for them. An allowance builds trustworthiness. By giving kids money to manage, you demonstrate that you trust them. And they soon learn that to keep the money coming, they need to become trustworthy. An allowance promotes self-confidence. Managing money has a magical effect on their self-esteem. Want to get your child’s allowance program off to a great start? Consider the Moonjar Moneybox. This clever savings bank is actually three banks in one to teach children to save, spend and share their allowance. Over the years, Moonjar (which is the creators’ names, Noom and Raj, spelled backward) has received multiple awards for innovation, and it’s no wonder. This money box is well-made

and easy to use. Kids as young as 4 years old can understand and learn from the process. I believe this durable tin money box is a timeless gift that will inspire and teach children to save, spend and share wisely for a lifetime. It costs about $19.

Marcia Matzelle & Ms. O’Leary - Whitehall Blvd homeowner

Holiday shoppers and house tour participants were in high spirits for the 42nd Annual Golden Goose Gala Candlelight House Tour and Holiday Shopping Boutique on Friday, November 18th and Saturday, November 19th. Embracing the unseasonably mild weather, a delightful time was had by all while touring the beautiful homes and shopping for unique, seasonal gifts at the Garden City Casino. Twigs, a member of the WinthropUniversity Hospital Auxiliary, is most grateful to the Garden City homeowners who so graciously offered their homes for the Candlelight House Tour. Many thanks to the Scheck family of Washington Avenue, the Prime family of Hampton Road, the O’Leary family of Whitehall Boulevard and the TigheSmith family of First Street for inviting the community in and making possible a very successful house tour event. The decor of each of these stunning residences captivated many visitors with charming and lasting memories. Many thanks to the volunteer cashiers at the Holiday Shopping Boutique for their countless hours of work and whose patience and professionalism enabled sales to be processed seamlessly. We recognized that the Candlelight House Tour would not have been possible without the staffers who tirelessly dedicated their time to welcome hundreds of tour participants. A huge thank you to Mr. & Mrs. Shammas, winners of the Golden Goose Gala’s 50/50 raffle, who amazingly donated their share back to benefit the Hospital! A

huge shout-out to Jane O’Keeffe for securing the brass band family and to Elizabeth, Jeanne and David for donating their time and talents! Each year the Twigs’ committee is sincerely appreciative of the patrons who have contributed to various sponsorship levels to support the pledges of the Golden Goose Gala. Our printing sponsor, Mike Russo of T. J. Russo Consultants, who generously prints the house tour ticket/booklets, deserves our deepest thanks and gratitude. Twigs is indeed grateful to all our supporters who enable the Golden Goose Gala to continue its ongoing support of WinthropUniversity Hospital. Twigs’ is delighted that its current pledge supports two nurse practitioner suites in Winthrop’s new Research and Academic Center that gently transition children into the endocrinology practice. Additionally, Child Life Specialists in the Star Program skillfully and compassionately support hospitalized youths on the autism spectrum or diagnosed with Down syndrome by easing their concerns and providing comfort. With warm gratitude and heartfelt thanks, the ladies of the 42nd Golden Goose Gala Committee wish all a happy, safe and peaceful holiday season.

For the second year in a row, Nassau Educators Federal Credit Union has granted Garden City High School Latin Teacher Mrs. Kathleen Durkin a “Funding Your Ideas” Grant.

GCFS donates books to young scientists

Garden City Friends of STEM (GCFS) supports Garden City Public Schools STEM initiatives. A donation of STEM-based books was presented to our primary schools: Locust, Hemlock, and Homestead. The multiple award-winning Andrea Beaty books inspire children in various ways through exploration, creativity, imagination and pursuing one’s dreams. To support our youngest scientists, a series of books will be on the shelves of the primary schools: “Ada Twist, Scientist”; “Iggy Peck, Architect”; and “Rosie Revere, Engineer.” The titles were all New York Times best sellers and they made a great addition to the schools’ libraries. GCFS Board member, Danielle Lalehzar, was invited to join Mrs. Welch to read “Iggy Peck, Architect” to her kindergarten class. The students loved the book and realized that they were architects already! They demonstrated how they worked collaboratively to build a sleigh out of blocks for their reindeer made out of paper mache. The children enjoyed the illustrations in the book and were excited to learn they had copies of it along with two other titles they could take home to share with their parents. Continue the cycle of giving and attend the GCFS Annual Fundraiser Revel for Robotics 2.0 on Friday, January 20th. For tickets, please visit GCFStem.org and use PayPal, or become a member of our organization… and support future scientists, engineers, and architects!

Attention future scientists… the GCFS book donation of award-winning STEM-based picture books was presented by GCFS Board Member, Danielle Lalehzar (left), to Dr. Viscovich, principal of Homestead School, and read aloud Mrs. Welch’s (right) kindergarten class.”

Garden City Crushers capture division championship The Garden City Crushers Travel Soccer Team (U10 Girls) clinched the Long Island Junior Soccer League division championship this past fall. GC Crushers, in their first season of travel soccer, finished the season with a 7-0-3 record giving them first place in the Long Island Junior Soccer League Premier Division, the highest competition level within the league. The team’s offense all season was led by speed demons Ellie Andersen, Emily Eschmann, Leila Massina, Riley McNaboe, Kathryn Monaco, Makaela Morris, and Sophie Rhein, racking up 32 goals for the season, a division best. Crusher’s powerhouse defense of Gracie Krawiec, Tori Ottomanelli, Daly Prybylski, and Elizabeth Staub, along with keeper Zella Coons allowed only 11

goals all season. The team is coached by Amy Monaco and Kerri Andersen. Other soccer achievements for this talented Crushers team included winning the Independence Cup tournament right out of the gate the last weekend in June and going undefeated at the Connecticut Football Club (CFC) Columbus Day Classic Tournament, which is open only to Premier and Select level soccer teams. This competitive tournament is the 3rd Ranked Girls Tournament in the nation over Columbus Day weekend. Garden City Crushers are currently training with Soccer Motiv8 this winter to prepare for the upcoming Spring 2017 Season. Congratulations to the entire Crushers Team and their families for a great first season. Go GC Crushers!

The TMA is composed of more than 100 active Directors, 50 Life Directors and 500 Family members. With the generous support of our fellow residents, the Men’s Association has been involved in a great number of projects covering a wide range of interests. While we are still primarily committed to the athletic programs at the Middle School and High School, in recent years the TMA has expanded their support and sponsorship to other programs benefiting a wider range of students in the Garden City Schools. Some of these programs are SEPTA, the Jamie and Paige Malone Foundation, Best Buddies, the GC High School Marching Band, BAA/GAA Awards Night, Middle School Bagel Bash, Reeves Scholarship, Bethany LeSueur Jersey Retirement Ceremony, GCHS Stem Program, CPR training for all coaches, HUDL, Robotics, 9th grade BBQ, Kickline, GCTA Hurricane Relief Fundraiser and the Father-Daughter and Mother-Son dances. All of this would not be possible without your continued assistance on aiding all we do. Thanks to all who contribute!

How You Can Join

The TMA is always looking for potential new members. If you’re a father who has a child or children in the GC School District and are willing to be involved please contact one of the Officers or Directors for an application.
