150 years ago: ‘A new birth of freedom’ 150 years ago next week, the blue and the gray came to death blows in a small corner of Pennsylvania called Gettysburg. In November of that year, President Abraham Lincoln helped dedicate the cemetery there with these stirring words. They are reprinted here as a memorial to all those whose sacrifice not only saved our country, but made it truer to its most fundamental – Mark Treske creed: The equality of all.
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.

YAY! Evangelina Jacobson of Acupuncture Yin Yang and The Acupuncture Society of New York (ASNY) announce the passing of the New York State Licensed Acupuncturist Workers Compensation bill in both houses of the New York State Legislature, bringing acupuncture care to injured workers statewide. Previous acupuncture treatments in the workers compensation system had to be performed by a physician while licensed acupuncturists were not authorized providers. ASNY’s President James M. Shinol, who is both a licensed acupuncturist and massage therapist, said “Acupuncture treats both the injury and the whole person without the use of addictive narcotics, allowing New York State injured workers to experience pain relief” he thanked especially the bill’s sponsor, Senator Jack Martins (R-C-I, Mineola). This legislation is now awaiting Governor Andrew Cuomo signature. ©©© TAKE A HIKE: Sunday, July 14, is the date of the two-mile hike sponsored by the Friends of the Norman Levy Preserve to the 125-foot peak of the Long Island Greenbelt Conference’s planned Meadowbrook Parkway Trail.

The Long Island International Film Expo (LIIFE) will hold its 16th annual installment at the historic Bellmore Movies from Wednesday, July 17, through Thursday, July 25. Showing 146 films from around the world, LIIFE will showcase movies from 18 countries, with 36 of the films having Long Island ties and 35 more hailing from New York in general. “Nassau County has always been a supporter of independent and studio films, and it’s our pleasure to bring this type of entertainment and cultural opportunity to our constituents,” remarked Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano. “LIIFE also provides an opportunity for filmmakers to come and see the types of filming locations Nassau County has to offer, whether it be our beaches, mansions, suburban areas and, of course, Gold Coast Studios and Grumman Studios. These are all stateapproved movie studios, qualifying for the much-sought-after 30% tax credit,” Mr. Mangano added. “What makes LIIFE such an important film festival,” said Merokian Debra Markowitz, Nassau County Film Office director, “is not only that we bring rare short and feature-length independent films to the public, but that LIIFE has fostered a growing film community.” She said that filmmakers from around the world apply and return year after year to meet old friends and find new contacts to work with. From local to foreign filmmaker, casting director to actor, producer to director and so on, many lasting connections are made every year, she continued. “What’s different is that we actually have three westerns at this year’s LIIFE,” said Ms. Markowitz. “We also have a horror block on Saturday, July 20, at 9:15 p.m. That’s

by Colin Hekimian Nassau County Police Department consolidation of the First and Seventh Precincts was front-and-center at last North Bellmore Civic week’s Association meeting as Nassau County Police Chief of Department Steven Skrynecki and First Precinct Commander Joseph McGrane spoke to roughly 25 concerned residents. North Bellmore Fire Commissioner Ed Kraus was also a guest speaker. Both Police Chief Skrynecki and Commander McGrane assured those in attendance that the First Precinct now has no plans to consolidate. The original plan involved the First Precinct in Baldwin and Seventh Precinct in Seaford consolidating, But superstorm Sandy delayed that venture. Chief Skrynecki said, “There is no plan in the immediate future for consolidation of the First and Seventh.” A man asked the guest speakers about how police con-

solidation has affected other counties. Chief Skrynecki replied, “We have concluded that the consolidations of the Second and Eighth Precincts, which were the first two to merge together, had the best precinct record of crime reduction in 2012.” He added that there were some plusses to consolidation for the average citizen. The negative aspect included administrative staff becoming smaller, with more responsibilities. “We can deliver the same protection public safety package whether we have a consolidated precinct or not. I truly believe that. The proof is in the pudding.” Police Chief Skrynecki also said that crime in the First Precinct is down 20% from last year. He reporteded that the plan for the First Precinct is still to begin construction of a new headquarters building in Baldwin. Problem-Oriented Concerning Policing status, Chief Skrynecki said, “Contrary to popular belief, P.O.P. is not dead. P.O.P. is still very much alive.”
P.O.P. is a policing strategy that seeks to have police be proactive in identifying underlying problems that could be targeted to reduce crime and disorder at their roots. Chief Skrynecki remarked, “It’s refreshing to see a full room in this rain with concerned citizens.” Newly elected Commissioner of the North Bellmore Fire Department Ed Kraus spoke briefly at the meeting. He said that they are in the process of renovating the Fire Department building. The government has mandated that fire departments featurenewer and bigger fire trucks. Thus, a bigger truck needs a bigger fire station. The North Bellmore fire station has one of very few technical rescue teams, and North Bellmore has the biggest fire
truck. Firefighters now respond to 1,300 alarms a year. Said Commissioner Kraus, “The time they put in is immense.” The North Bellmore Fire Department has created a new website with the focus being on fire safety. He asked residents to visit the new site at NorthBellmoreFD.org. At the end of the meeting, North Bellmore School District Board of Education President JoAnn DeLauter and Frank Magra campaigned briefly on for a trustee seat on the North Bellmore school board. Mr. Lamagra was challenging Mrs. Delauter for the seat. The two tied in the May election. Collin Hekminian is a New York Press Association summer intern at Merrick Life.

by Danielle Sopchak Richard Cameron, Bellmore author of “Famous People Who Dropped Dead,” has published a new book, “The Glass Facade,” set in 1991 during a recession. His main character, Sid White, is a politically incorrect wedding photographer based on a real person whose name remains undisclosed. Mr. Cameron is a C.W. Post (now LIU Post) photojournalism major alumni. Although he took some courses in creative writing, he believes they play little-to-no effect on his writing style. Rather, Mr. Cameron attests his writing to living the life of a photographer for over 30 years. “If a fireman can write about being a fireman and a cop can write about being a cop, then a photographer can write about being a photographer,” he explained to this newspaper. Richard Cameron wrote his first book on a typewriter and does not know how to use a digital camera. He starts everyday by reading the obituaries. Mr. Cameron is a member of the Long Island Writers Guild, and encourages any published or aspiring writer to be come a member. For information visit www.liwritersguild.org.

Spirit of Radio,” to which most of the audience sang along. For their encore they returned to play “Tom Sawyer,” their signature hit, to booming applause. The show closed with “2112,” a concert-shortened version of their 20-minute title track from the album of the same name. With no opening band, Rush played for roughly two-and-a-half hours, which more than satisfied its hardcore fans, and left the stage to rousing applause.

clearly Neil Peart’s exceptional drumming. With complex skill and virtuosity Mr. Peart’s name is mentioned among most music critics as one of the best drummers of rock. Along with writing the band’s lyrics, Mr. Peart appears to be the backbone of the band, even if Rush remains such a tight-knit group making it hard to pick who is the most pivotal member. The second half of the show began with the opening song from “Clockwork Angels” called “Caravan.” They played nine of their 12 songs from the new album, including the single, “Headlong Flight.” Rush then launched into their oldies but goodies, precisely what everybody was waiting for. When they broke into the instrumental “YYZ,” the crowd literally screamed in delight. They then segued into the crowd-pleasing “The
The progressive Canadian rock trio Rush blew into Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on Sunday to promote their newest album, “Clockwork Angels.” Together for 36 years and having released 20 studio albums, mainstream music critics are finally giving Rush the recognition they deserve after inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year – long overdue. With one of the most devoted fan bases of any rock band, Rush appeals to many demographics. The band has loyal fans that have been attending their concerts for decades. What seemed significant about the crowd was that it contained a healthy mix of young and older fans alike. Perhaps it is because of their appearance in the 2008 comedy “I Love You, Man,” which gave the band more mainstream attention – which they have never had or needed. Rush came on stage to roaring applause, opening the show with
“Subdivisions,” from the classic 1982 album, “Signals.” They played several of their lesser-known synthesizer-heavy songs from an extensive category. After an hour, lead singer, bassist and keyboardist Geddy Lee announced the band would take an intermission due to “their advanced age.” While Nikon at Jones Beach Theater was ravaged by supestorm Sandy when three million gallons of salt water flooded the venue last year, the newly renovated outdoor amphitheater looked spectacular once again. The band returned for the second half of the show draped in moonlight of the recent “supermoon.” Rush sounded as good as ever. There was no shortage of noise, as this reviewer’s ringing ears attested. Mr. Lee’s signature bass, which has made the band famous (as well as his high-pitched voice), was front-and center. Alex Lifeson’s guitar playing was tight and his blistering guitar solos dazzled the crowd. But the highlight of the show was

A tradition in the Merrick communities of long-standing will again be carried on this July 4 with a communal reading of the Declaration of Independence. Ever since the bicentennial year in which the Historical Society of the
Merricks was formed, the group has gathered together to read aloud every word of the Declaration just as it was first spoken in the year of 1776. Then, the broadsheets printed by the Congress arrived in our towns several days after the Fourth of July, and the people heard for the first time the inspiring ideas as well as the 26 indictments listed against the British crown. The reading this year will take place at 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 4, at the Merrick Gazebo just off of Merrick Avenue, north of the LIRR station. Led by the president of the Historical Society, Professor Lawrence Garfinkel of LIU Post, participants young and old will each recite a line from this important document. Part two of the day’s festivities will take place later on with a free bus tour of Merrick and North Merrick, narrated and led by Judge Jerry Medowar. People can attend just the reading and then go ahead to enjoy the rest of the Fourth… or on a first-come and first-served basis can take that unusual bus ride through historic Merrick and North Merrick after the reading.
For the first time the Merrick Chorale is going to lead the audience
in a patriotic songfest.
