Wee Friends making good use of Gunther School by Kimberly White Wee Friends Nursery School and Day Camp has rented out the Jacob Gunther Elementary School in Bellmore. Wee Friends, at both 1865 Beech Street in Wantagh and 2600 Regent Place in Bellmore, provides a day camp for children from ages three months through kindergarten. With another location in Merrick, Wee Friends opened at Gunther in September. Extensive flood damage caused by superstorm Sandy at its Merrick location hastened Wee
Friends’ complete move to Gunther, and the close of the Merrick location. Only classrooms on the first floor are being used at the Gunther location because all have a bathroom and younger children are involved. Supervision is also easier on the main floor. Continued economic uncertainty has created success at the Gunther location in Bellmore. BellmoreMerrick teachers, both moms and dads – the clientele Wee Friends in Bellmore serves – are working to tie up economic ends, causing them to send their children to daycare.
It gives the teachers who are also parents the opportunity to drop off their kids before school and pick them up once school ends. Wee Friends serves the same clientele in Wantagh. Wee Friends has been around for 37 years. Barbara Feman, teacher director, says, “Wee Friends focuses on the development of the whole child,” with cognitive teachers who help the kids learn concept skills with hands-on activities. Laurie Kass, a teacher at Wee Friends, is bringing in fish to her class of four-year-old students to dissect. They will be given surgical gloves
and will be looking at the eyes and bones of the fish. The unit they are studying is “Under the Sea,” and what the environment is like down there. That environment may tell something about why fish eyes are the way they are, as well as the bones. Everything the children learn intertwines with their unit. Barbara Feman calls these projects “an outgrowth of a learning experience.” Wee Friends offers a balance of arts and sports. Music and dance teachers interact with the kids for a half-hour every day and experiment with different types of music. (continued on page 5)

Withholding rightful funds “It is unconscionable that insurance companies and banks are withholding money their customers rightfully deserve,” said Legislator Denenberg. “The money belongs in the people’s hands. It’s time for them to pay up so that Sandy victims can continue getting their lives back on track.” The first bill Legislator Denenberg and the Democratic caucus support would amend the County Administrative Code regarding Unfair Trade Practices to provide a more speedy approval of insurance claims, as carriers are suspect-
ed of purposefully delaying and denying payment to customers in need, he said. Under this law, if the insurer wrongfully denies a valid claim, fails to answer a claim within 30 days or delays payment without providing reason for doing so, they will be fined and subject to lawsuit by the county attorney. The insurance company would also be liable for the customer’s full insurance payment, plus interest, as well as reimbursement of other subsequent damages including (but not limited to) emotional distress, property damage and attorney’s fees. The second would require banks to promptly release homeowners’ insurance payments in the event of a major disaster. This would ensure that once the money is released, customers would receive their payment in a reasonable amount of time – not several weeks or months. Historically, banks or lending institutions that hold the mortgage on a home are considered “part owner.” Any insurance claim that is paid out for damages must be signed off by the homeowner and bank or lending institution that holds the mortgage. Numerous complaints from residents state that bank delays and burdensome requirements have delayed their ability to move forward with necessary home repairs. This also affects local businesses and contractors, too, since they are relying on rebuilding Nassau County to help them recover the business they lost as a result of Sandy. Insurance experts who blog on insurance websites have told Bellmore Life that insurers have paid a majority of the
FUNERAL HOME Family to to Family Family Family Service ServiceSince Since1914 1914
claims based on personal coverage, explaining that is where homeowners get cash to get started. But the specific federal flood insurance claim requires a lengthier analysis of damage, and all those analyses then must go to the federal government for action. Common understanding within the industry is that if a comprehensive flood analysis is done at a first visit, homeowners would not get money to start for some time. “We don’t need anymore red tape or governmental layers in an already laborintensive paper process,” said one agent. It was noted that some homeowners have also taken upfront monies and fled the area, making security an issue for banks who hold mortgages on those homes. Jurisdiction over banks? Brian Nevin, spokesman for Nassau County Exectuve Edward P. Mangano, told Bellmore Life that “Obviously, we would support anything that could help our residents get access to their funds so that
they could quickly get on with the work of rebuilding their homes.” But he added that “we also know we don’t have any authority over banks, it is both a state and federal issue. If we can get that authority over the banks, any legislation might work.” Frank Moroney, director of communications for the Republican Majority Legislative caucus, said, “The threshold is whether or not enforcement rests with the county. It is a thoughtful remedy that is worth looking at. However, the mechanism already exists under the [state] attorney general’s office. Nassau County does not have a banking department; it does not have an insurance department. This is not to devalue the proposal. Sometimes you have to make a proposal in order to catch people’s attention.” For information call the state consumer hotline at 800-342-3736, M-F 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Or you can visit www.dfs.ny.gov/insurance/dfs_insurance.htm. –With Arielle Martinez and D.

FEMA extends TSA program With 140 Nassau County households still relying on the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) program, the agency – at the request of the State of New York – has approved a 21-day extension to the TSA program, which allows eligible survivors from superstorm Sandy who cannot return to their homes to stay in participating hotels. The new checkout date for those in the TSA program is Sunday, April 14. FEMA is calling applicants eligible for the extension to notify them of the new checkout date. The temporary TSA program allows eligible superstorm Sandy survivors whose houses have been severely damaged or destroyed to stay in a hotel for a limited time. The cost of the room and taxes are paid directly to the hotel by FEMA. The extension was approved to help those applicants still eligible for the program to remain in hotels as
FEMA and its state and local partners work to identify longer-term housing solutions. All TSA applicants staying in hotels are evaluated for continued eligibility. FEMA continues to work in coordination with state, local and voluntary agency partners to assist applicants through outreach and comprehensive casework to identify and transition them to more suitable temporary or long-term housing. Meals, telephone calls and other incidental charges are not covered, and applicants are responsible for any lodging costs above the authorized allowance. The program does not reimburse previously incurred hotel expenses. While there were 18 county registrants as of March 21 registering for FEMA assistance for the first time – and eight on March 20 – the deadline for registering for FEMA assistance is still this Friday, March 29, at 6 p.m. – D.

Legislator Dave Denenberg (DMerrick) is looking to introduce new county legislation to help residents struggling to pay for repairs to their homes following superstorm Sandy. Last week he announced he has introduced two new bills that would potentially help release much-needed funds from insurance companies, banks or mortgage lenders who have delayed payment to Nassau residents having a hard time paying for heat, electricity and construction. Homeowners are forced to dip into their savings accounts because insurance companies and banks are holding up the process by delaying payment and misinforming their customers, he said. With these two bills, Legislator Denenberg and Democratic legislators hopeful that Sandy victims can receive the money they need to rebuild their homes and find some sort of normalcy restored to their lives.

More than a number The SAT tests, for which college-bound students spend their entire education K-12 preparing, have been scientifically designed to determine how well they will do at the university. Educators say if they have a good math background and have done a lot of reading of literature, history and current events (newspapers and news magazines) they should do well. Yet in an ever-more competitive society, so many take the test taking strategy courses that promise to increase scores that not taking one may be a disadvantage. Others spend hours memorizing the vocabulary that commonly appears on the test. But at least they do not start in grade school. However, a new trend applying business principles to education, measuring outcome by test results, has created a monster, because now elementary school children are being tested on what they could not possibly know, then taught it and then tested again just to provide these measurements of teacher effectiveness, a policy which totally lacks common sense and can be very discouraging to the children. If they react by giving up in despair, we lose. If they react by treating the tests as a joke, we lose too. When teachers are forced to “teach to the test” they will be producing classrooms full of students who resemble sausages, all the same. They will not be nurturing individual talents. They will not be seizing “teachable moments” that come when children express their natural curiosity about a topic, and are open and excited about learning it. That moment is not easily recaptured. What kind of classroom do you want for your child? You have the opportunity to hear what local educators are saying about it soon. Wantagh Elementary School Principal Dr. Don Sternberg will be among the panelists at a conference titled “More than a Number: How State Testing is Affecting the Educational and Emotional Health of Students,” on Wednesday, April 10, from 7- 9 p.m. at Hofstra University’s Adams Playhouse in Hempstead. The event is sponsored by New York State Principals, School Leadership 2.0 and Hofstra. Others taking part in the panel discussion include: Dr. Bill Johnson (superintendent, Rockville Centre School District) Dr. Carol Burris (principal, South Side High School, Rockville Centre) Dr. Sean Feeney (principal, The Wheatley School, Old Westbury) Sharon Fougner (principal, E.M. Baker Elementary School in Great Neck) Dr. Sheri Lederman (teacher, E.M. Baker Elementary School) Nikhil Goyal (student author from Syosset High School) Dr. Lola Nouryan (psychologist, Hofstra University) Leonie Haimson (parent advocate and head of Class Size Matters).

For parents of children with special needs, the future can hold much uncertainty. Autism and other developmental disabilities are on the rise, meaning that a growing number of children will require lifelong care. In light of the deep cuts made to special needs funding at state and federal levels, it’s important that families properly prepare for the future. Parents cannot rely on government aid alone to provide for their children’s well-being, and expert advice has become
crucial to safeguarding assets and benefits. On Thursday, April 25, at 8 p.m. the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District, in conjunction with BellmoreMerrick SEPTA and Community Parent Center (CPC), will host the workshop How to protect your child legally and financially, offered by Andrew Cohen, Esq. and Mitch Weisbrot, CLU, that addresses eligibility for government benefits, guardianship, estate planning and supplemental needs trusts. Mr. Cohen and Mr. Weisbrot are fathers
of children with disabilities who frequently lecture together on the subject of disabilities. In addition to being a member of the New York State Bar Association, Mr. Cohen is a charter member of the Academy of Special Needs Planners and received Exceptional Parent magazine’s Maxwell J. Schleifer Distinguished Service Award at Citi Field in May 2010. Mr. Weisbrot is a charter member of Northwestern Mutual’s Special Steps Program and a member of Sid Jacobson
Jewish Community Center’s Special Needs Advisory Committee. The seminar, How to protect your child legally and financially, will be held in the B169 room at Calhoun High School, 1786 State Street, Merrick. For information, call Cheryl Gitlitz, LCSW, at 992-1349. To learn about the speakers, you can visit www.amcohenlaw.com and www.mitchweisbrot.com. – Wendy Tepfer, CPC
Calhoun health fair shows how to live a healthier lifestyle Calhoun High School’s SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) club hosted its annual Health Fair on Friday, encouraging students and staff to commit to a healthier lifestyle. The Calhoun gymnasium was filled wall-to-wall with stations for students to try health-food options, different exercises and activities, and learn about their health. Local businesses also donated their time to the fair, such as Vanity Hair Salon – which is giving away a prom package for a lucky high school student who wins its raffle – and local cosmetology places such as European Wax. Popular eatery Souper Fry had a table where it gave out free soup samples, and Professionals Athletic Center was helping measure students’ jumping
abilities with a special measuring tool. Other vendors included Cross Fit, Synergy, La Mystika, Swirlz World, Olga’s Hair Salon and Hope Fitness. Student-run stations included rhythm gaming areas for students to play physical games such as “Just Dance,” which shows how video gaming can be fun exercise, and a make-your-own fruit salad and oatmeal station. Alongside physical health stations showing at the fair, there were mental and emotional health stations as well. A mind-teaser game was set up a booth, as well as a Gay-Straight Alliance booth run by the members of the GSA club at Calhoun. Periodically throughout the day, a group of student dancers would gather in the middle of the gym and lead everyone at the fair in Zumba, a popular dancercise sweeping the nation. “We brought in some new vendors,”

Thomas W. Goodhue, executive director of the LICC. “After all the destruction caused by superstorm Sandy along the South Shore and elsewhere, it is good to welcome Easter and celebrate recovery as dawn breaks on the beach.” This year’s preacher will be Rev. Goodhue, and his sermon will focus on “Hanging on for Dear Life or Leaping Toward New Life.” He will also have a story for children, who are encouraged to attend. Soh Young Lee-Segredo, a member of Freeport United Methodist Church, and members of the Multi-Cultural Peace Mission Choir, will sing, as will Don Warner from Wantagh Memorial Congregational Church. Enter Parking Field 6 and head due south toward the beach, where there will be large LICC banner directing you toward the gathering place. Parking is free at that hour. The service is brief (about half an hour) and informal. Worshippers are encouraged to dress warmly and bring beach chairs or blankets. Worshippers also are encouraged to bring nonperishable food or monetary donations for the LICC’s emergency food pantries, which have been inundated with requests for help this year, particularly from senior citizens and from those affected by Sandy .

Nassau police received a call at 12:44 p.m. on Thursday from the 32-year-old son of Felice, 60, and Carolina Stanco, 61, saying he had found his parents dead when he came to their home. He had received a call from the employer of one of his parents saying they hadn’t shown up for work. Nassau County Inspector Kenneth Lack told Bellmore Life and other reporters gathered outside 202 Leonard Street, North Bellmore, that Mr. Stanco shot his wife Carolina with a rifle before turning the gun on himself. Detective Lieutenant John Azzata, commanding officer of the police department’s Homicide Squad, told Bellmore Life that
interviews with people who knew the couple revealed that Mr. Stanco may have been suffering from hallucinations, such as people following him. It could not be acertained by press time if Mr. Stanco was prescribed medication to resolve the hallucinations, or whether any medication at all had been prescribed. It could not be learned if Mr. Stanco suffered from hallucinations before. Det. Lt. Azzata confirmed that the couple had had dinner with their children – their son as well as a daughter – the night before the murder-suicide.

Boland told family, friends and coworkers that he had stormed off after an argument and hadn’t returned. When his body was discovered, she told them that she was worried it might be her ex-husband. “This was not self-defense and it was no accident. Nancy Boland killed her ex-husband, dumped his body on the side of the road, and then lied to anyone who asked,” Ms. Rice said. “No matter how thoroughly she attempted to cover her tracks, she could not hide from what she had done,” the DA concluded.

A jury has convicted Carlos Segura, 30, of Brooklyn of burglary, robbery and assault for his role in a violent home invasion in North Bellmore, Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice announced. Mr. Segura was convicted of six counts of Robbery, four counts of Burglary, two counts of Assault, three counts of Unlawful Imprisonment, and Escape. He faces up to 25 years in prison at his May 7 sentencing. DA Rice said that at approximately 8:30 a.m. on September 19, 2011, Segura and two other men, Gustavo Arroyo and Eduardo Cruz, exited a vehicle being driven by Dario Guerrero and approached a North Bellmore home. Mr. Cruz entered the home through
the unlocked front door and began beating a female resident before signaling to Mr. Segura and Mr. Arroyo to come inside. Mr. Segura, armed with a gun, and Mr. Cruz and Mr. Arroyo, both armed with knives, tied up three residents of the home and began to search for money. A fourth resident who lived in the home’s basement was also tied up before having his cell phone and $350 stolen from him. During the course of the robbery a male resident of the home, who had been out during the robbery, returned home. When he attempted to open the front door, Mr. Arroyo grabbed him and tried to pull him inside. The male resident broke free of Mr. Arroyo and ran from the house into the street screaming for help.
The three defendants fled the house and got into the waiting car being driven by Mr. Guerrero. Bellmore Life reported that a good Samaritan called police to provide details of the car while following it. Nassau County police officers then were able to pick up the fleeing car driving eastbound on Merrick Road into Merrick. Upon stopping the vehicle on Babylon Road near Merrick Road, an officer ordered all four men out of the car and then attempted to arrest Mr. Cruz, who resisted and refused to be handcuffed. Mr. Segura and Mr. Guerrero jumped back into their car and drove straight at the officer. The officer fired at the vehicle, striking Mr. Guerrero in the left leg. Mr. Arroyo fled on foot but was arrested a
short time later, as was Mr. Cruz. Mr. Guerrero was arrested after a traffic stop on Sunrise Highway in Wantagh in front of Wantagh Ford, with a bullet hole in the windshield. Mr. Segura was arrested in a cab heading back to Brooklyn after a traffic stop on the Southern State Parkway. Mr. Arroyo, Mr. Guerrero and Mr. Cruz, all of Brooklyn, are awaiting trial. “This was a savage attack against a group of people who barely had enough time for breakfast before being subjected to such violence,” DA Rice said. “Thanks to the excellent work of members of the NCPD and members of my office, however, this defendant will spend a very long time behind bars.”

Rock Underground fuels Battle of the Bands by Kimberly White Funds for the Midnight Madness postprom event at Zacharyâ€™s Night Club in East Meadow are being provided by the Battle of the Bands event created by the Community Wellness Council and The Rock Underground in Bellmore. Emilio Manzo, president of the the Wellness Council, told this newspaper he approached The Rock Underground on Bedford Avenue to help get the event started. Since funds this year have proven harder to come by to sponsor the postprom event, Mr. Manzo asked Steve
Eplan, co-owner of the Rock Underground, to get local bands to attend the event and to make it a success. To add diversity, Mr. Eplan contacted local bands of all ages to compete in the battle of the bands. There was no age limit to which bands could compete and who could not. County Legislator Dave Denenberg suggested a diversity of bands in order to attract different tyes of music. Mr. Kaplan said 11 bands will be competing, from middle school students to adults. The bands attending will include Kamelot, Platypus, Baked Goods, Still Life and Exit Strategy. All
members of the local community and schools include those from Mepham Calhoun and Kennedy High Schools, and Merrick Avenue Middle School. All the bands are well experienced and have played at local locations in the Bellmore-Merrick community, such as school events organized by high schools in the district, and charity events. The event there will feature three guest judges who are all musically involved in one way or another. One judge is Richard Gilley, the band teacher over at Merrick Avenue Middle School. Joe Rock, the DJ of the WBAD radio
station, will be the MC of the event. The event will take place at Brookside School on Meadowbrook Road on Friday, April 19. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the first band goes on stage at 7 p.m. For information or to purchase $10 tickets, stop by the Community Wellness Council at the Brookside School on Meadowbrook Road in North Merrick or The Rock Underground on Bedford Avenue in Bellmore. Kim White interns at Bellmore/Merrick Life as part of the Calhoun Senior Experience class.
