FEMA pointers can make your home safer by Jacob Derwin and Kim White Superstorm Sandy continues to leave Long Island residents struggling to return to normal and rebuild broken homes. Everything from flooding to roof damage has become an issue for many families. Luckily, FEMA has come to share its advice on how to rebuild much more safely to avoid such wide-reaching catastrophic damage again. Mitigation According to FEMA officials this newspaper visited by invitation at a Lowe’s Homecenter, mitigation – building or rebuilding your home to provide for a safer environment and stronger structure – starts with your local permit office. When contacting the Town of Hempstead Building Department, you can receive the certificates and allowances necessary to adjust your home and elevation as needed. The Certificate of Elevation, for example,

allows you to raise or adjust your home based on the flood plain it is constructed on. The information about the flood plain your land is on and that of the surrounding area comes from your local building permit office. For instance, if your home rests in a flood zone, flood insurance will cost substantially more if you haven’t elevated your house as needed, because of the liability. The building office will give you the proper information so you can fix your elevation problem – such as elevating your house. This can seriously reduce your liability and save you possibly 50% or more on insurance because the liability would be linked to hydrology records. These hydrology studies will show you how much water could affect your home in a flooding situation. Mold One of the biggest concerns families have with recently flooded homes is mold. What most people don’t know is how mold works as a dangerous organism, and what the prop-

er ways of disposing of it are. Mold, through sporing, can spread through the air to latch onto other walls in the room. Since it can travel in the air, and it tends to grow in warm, moist, dark environments, mold has the ability to potentially grow in your lungs and cause health problems, such as mold poisoning, a fungal infection. There are three stages of mold: child, juvenile and adult. Because of this, it takes three applications of the correct mixture of water-to-bleach (one gallon of water to every half-cup of bleach) to completely eliminate it. Too much bleach actually encourages mold growth, so following the proper instructions is very important. The tiny specks of mold we see on any damaged surface are only the tips of tentacles of the full mold bacteria behind the walls. The actual organisms are at least 10 times larger than what we see. Yes, this gave us chills too. By spraying the bleach-to-water mixture on the mold, and leaving it for 10 minutes,

then rinsing it with clear water, the mature stage of the mold will die. But because there are three stages, once the mature stage dies the juvenile stage then becomes the mature stage, requiring a second application of the mixture to kill it off. One more application will be needed to kill juvenile stage, which by now has become another mature stage. Another step to take in preventing the growth of not only mold, but mildew and fungi, is to manage the humidity and moisture in the air. Keeping low humidity by means of a dehumidifier, fans or a desiccants in smaller closed areas, will stop any of those nasty organisms from growing in your home. One trick we found interesting was using cat litter made of clay, a somewhat common household product, as a desiccant. This will be a long process for homes with heavy damage, but is important in maintaining the stability of your home, and getting rid of that less-than-savory odor. (continued on page 2)

from page 1 Because residue from flood levels can seep up to two feet higher on a wall than the flood level itself – ie., a two-foot flood level seeps two extra feet up a wall – creating mold far from the initial soaking, FEMA recommends installing special dry wall that is resistant to mold, and is available in four-foot sections. These four-foot sections make it easier to remove than having to take the whole wall down, from ceiling to floor. A FEMA pamphlet – available at select home centers – provides a chart outlining

items that should, or must, be discarded after soaked by flood water. Things to be disposed of include mattresses, pillows, large carpets, upholstered couches and chairs. Items that must be thrown out include food, medical supplies and baby toys, as well as cosmetics. The main thing emphasized by FEMA is the need to, once again, contact your local buildings office to get all the information on your home’s area having to do with elevation, flood plains, and the proper work necessary to keep every safe in the face of a storm such as superstorm Sandy.

Three animal rescuers – Diane Madden, Lucille DeFina and Frances Lucivero-Pelletiers – were awarded $150,000 as a judgement that settles a lawsuit against the Town of Hempstead’s Animal Shelter in Wantagh and various town officials, including Supervisor Kate Murray. This judgement means there will be no court trial. Steven Morelli, attorney for the plaintiffs, called the judgement a “clear victory, not only for the plaintiffs, not only for proponents of First Amendment rights, but also for the helpless animals that find themselves in the confines of the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter,” he said in a news release. But town spokesman Michael Deery refuted this statement. “The township is satisfied that the settlement of a legal case involving the shelter indicates no wrongdoing on the part of the plaintiffs or the town,” he said in a prepared statement. The action filed by Ms. Madden, Ms. Defina and Ms. LuciveroPelletier was to redress defamatory statements made by the Town of Hempstead officials as well as violations of the plaintiffs’ First Amendment constitutional rights, said Mr. Morelli. Ms. Madden and Ms. DeFina declared at numerous Town Board meetings as well as to the press that

they believed there was a misuse of taxpayer monies, and animal abuse at the Hempstead Town Shelter. “The Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter offers top-notch care for cats and dogs at its Wantagh facility,” said Mr. Deery. “Indeed, reviews of the shelter have found no mistreatment or neglect of animals. On the contrary, the Humane Society of the United States recently honored shelter officials for the superlative care they provided to animals who fell victim to Hurricane Sandy.” However, Mr. Morelli said a New York State audit confirmed the misuse of public funds and mismanagement of the Animal Shelter. “Many problems still exist,” said Ms. DeFina. “The absolute refusal on the part of Hempstead officials to allow public oversight leaves us no choice but to continue our efforts to be the voice for the animals,” explained Ms. Madden. On the website of an advocacy group called Hope for Hempstead Shelter, that Ms. Madden and Ms. DeFina are involved in, is launching a campaign to privatize the town shelter. In the meantime, the town says it “looks forward to continuing to provide excellent care for animals at its municipal shelter.”

When life imitates art Mahatma Gandhi freed millions living in the Indian subcontinent from British colonial rule through nonviolent protest. How fortunate we were that American civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. took note and also chose nonviolent civil disobedience to fight for racial equality. It worked, and though the struggle cost lives, the choice of nonviolent protest spared many more. Ironically, Martin Luther King Jr. himself came to a violent end, felled by an assassin’s bullet. It would honor his name if this nation can come together around the holiday of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and express our concerns about gun violence. Hollywood glorifies gun violence way too much. So do the video games our children and grandchildren play. Those games dehumanize the victims and make killing other human beings seem like a sport. The problem starts when life imitates art, and the fictional becomes reality as it does for some with mental health problems. We saw it happen at Columbine High School, at Virginia Tech, at an Aurora movie theatre, at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. and most recently at a California high school. Just last week, a former student was reported to have threatened to kill everybody at North Bellmore’s Mepham High School. That hits too close to home. When are violent video games just a way of letting off steam, and when do they become something more dangerous? Confidential to those who want to make a difference in honor of Dr Martin Luther King Jr.: From the poem “Outwitted” by Edwin Markham: “He drew a circle that shut me out – Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout. But Love and I had the wit to win. We drew a circle and took him in.”

HE’S AN EAGLE: Andrew Joseph Bloniarz of Wantagh was awarded his rank of Eagle Scout from Wantagh's BSA Troop 656 at his Eagle Scout Court of Honor held at the Wantagh American Legion Post on Sunday, January 6.

Seventh Squad detectives report the arrests on Saturday and Sunday of two 16year-old males from Wantagh for a burglary that occurred on November 1 at 6:15 p.m. in Wantagh. According to detectives, the two youths, one from Emma Street and the other from Park Avenue, broke the front window of Twisted Glass, 1898 Wantagh Avenue, entered the closed business and removed 19 artisan glass tobacco pipes (bongs); a value that exceeded $10,000. An investigation by detectives led to the arrest of the first youth on January 12 and the other on January 13. Both suspects are charged with Burglary.

Then the queries broadened to include continents, physical characteristics of geography and knowledge of foreign lands. When students missed two questions they were eliminated. As the rounds progressed, the questions got tougher but seventh-grader Charlie Mazzer prevailed and was declared winner of the tournament! Charlie will now take a test that will be sent to the National Geographic headquarters in Washington, DC. Depending on his score, he may qualify for the New York State Bee that will be held later this year in Albany. Wantagh Middle School has had four students qualify for the State Bee in the last 10 years. Congratulations and good luck Charlie, Wantagh is proud of you!

It was helpful to have a global understanding of the globe and more at the Wantagh Middle School Geography Bee last week. Each year thousands of schools in the United States participate in the National Geographic Bee. The contest is designed to encourage teachers to include geography in their classrooms, spark student interest in the subject, and increase public awareness about geography. Preliminary contests were held in all of the social studies classes, with the top scorer from each class moving to the final. Thirty students from grades 6-8 participated in the recent final. The first rounds began with questions concerning the states in our country.

Update on Dental Care

What You Drink Affects Your Teeth There May be More Acid and Sugar In Your Favorite Soft Drink Than You Think

Y

our favorite soft drink can be adversely affecting your teeth because of its high acid and sugar content. Too much soda or sports and energy drinks; ecspecially for children; can cause tooth decay.

Now is the time to think about treating your thickened, discolored toenails that you are ashamed to have other people see. There is a pain-free cure with a new laser technology that can eliminate this embarrassing condition. The new laser technology offered at Livingston Foot Care Specialists is a quick, effective treatment without the need for anesthesia or injections and without any discomfort or downtime. Fungal nails afflict many people of varying ages. It is an infection that left untreated may spread to all the toenails and the adjacent skin. Many people feel that improper hygiene leads to development of this condition. Actually onychomycosis is caused by distinct organisms and can be transmitted from person to person by using unsterilized nail instruments or by wearing shoes from another person who has the fungus. Treatments for this condition include topical medications, systemic medications and now laser treatment. The laser is aimed at the fungus in the toenail and vaporizes it while leaving the adjacent skin unharmed. The newest technology is the utilization of a cool laser. Most patients are able to grow out a regular appearing nail after just one laser treatment. In some cases the laser treatment has to

be repeated to completely destroy the unsightly fungus. Studies have shown the laser to have no side effects while being effective in eradicating the fungal infection. Livingston Foot Care Specialists offers the newest, most technologically advanced FDA-cleared laser therapy available and one that clinical trials have shown to be very effective in treating this condition without harmful side effects. Livingston Foot Care Call Specialists for evaluation and to discuss laser therapy for your disfiguring, unsightly, and painful fungal nails. The Board Certified podiatrists at Livingston Foot Care Specialists treat all foot conditions from the simple corn to total reconstructive foot surgery.

After receiving the infusion, Mr. Burcham immediately was able to travel to his next appointment assessing roof damage on Long Island homes.

Volunteers have travelled from across the country to assist with Long Island relief efforts after Hurricane Sandy. The Team at the Winthrop Comprehensive Multiple Sclerosis Care Center was recently given the opportunity to give back to one such volunteer, 41-year-old Robert Burcham of Tennessee. Although Mr. Burcham suffers from multiple sclerosis (MS), he hasn’t let it stop him from assisting victims of environmental disasters across the country over the years. Mr. Burcham is an expert in his field – assessing damage to roofs that are difficult for most people to get to. When Mr. Burcham had the opportunity to come to New York to help with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, he didn’t delay, even though that meant he would be missing his Tysabri Infusion – a therapy that he receives every 28 days to slow down the progression of MS. “When I left Tennessee, I was already due for another treatment, but I wanted to get out here to help, and then I was so busy that I never made time to take care of myself,” he said. After spending a month in New York helping others, Mr. Burcham called The Winthrop Comprehensive Multiple Sclerosis Care Center. Dr. Gottesman and the center’s team worked to ensure that Mr. Burcham could promptly receive the necessary treatment. “We were eager to do anything we

Seeking The Citizen’s First Baby


by Laura Schofer One of the earliest recorded incidents of violence in a primary school took place in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, on July 26, 1764 when four Lenape warriors shot and scalped 11 children in a schoolhouse. Historically, most incidents of school violence were one-on-one encounters such as the shooting of one teenage boy by another boy in a washroom of Massapequa High School in 1958. But the climate changed in April of 1999 when Eric David Harris and Dylan Bennett Klebold walked into Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, armed with multiple guns and explosives and killed 12 students, one teacher and injured 21 more students before committing suicide. “This was a game changer,” said Nassau County Police Sergeant Kevin McCarthy, after playing a recording of the 911 call of that incident to a group of school and other public officials who attended a Shooter Awareness Seminar at Adelphi University last week. The program, given by the Nassau County Police Department, was aimed at ensuring public safety in our schools, libraries, hospitals and other public places. The goal of the seminar was to ensure public safety by coordinating the county’s protocols. “The other incident that helped to change police tactics was the Virginia Tech massacre,” said Sergeant McCarthy. “April seems to be a trigger month, something about Hitler’s birthday.” In a self-made video recording by

Seung-Hui Cho to the media, he refers to the Columbine incident as one of his motivations. “We have learned a lot of what we should do in such instances,” Sergeant McCarthy explained. Prior to Columbine and Virginia Tech, police followed the traditional tactics of surrounding a building, setting up a perimeter and containing damage. But the profile of these active shooters indicate they are not looking to be captured and will commit suicide. Therefore, the police have changed their tactics and now have a plan in place to neutralize the shooter as quickly as possible. The sensitive nature of seminar as well as for the protection and well-being of our children, this article will not go into detail. Sergeant Michael Savino, representing the Nassau County police academy, added that “the department has trained “2,400 members as well as working with schools and other public officials” to help keep the public safe from active shooters. Nassau Police Chief Steven Skrynecki defined an active shooter as someone who has used deadly physical force on other persons and continues to do do while having unrestricted access to additional victims. This could include deadly physical force by means of a gun, knife or other weapons. Chief Skrynecki added that the incidents of targeted violence at school were rarely sudden impulsive acts. “This person is usually male, maladjusted and isolated,” said Chief Skrynecki. Sergeant Savino said this individual is also “heavily armed – as if he is playing

a violent video game, and may be prepared for sustained engagement. He is usually familiar with the facility.” Sergeant Savino played a police training video for audience members and told them, “you need to be prepared so you know our intentions and how to interact with us.” “We are coming and we know what to do,” said Sergeant McCarthy. “We are prepared and you must be prepared as well,” he told the audience.

emergency response plans and codes of conduct for students that must be reviewed and revised, if necessary, on an annual basis. Project SAVE also provides for other safety measures including uniform reporting of violent incidents in schools, fingerprinting and criminal history background checks of school district job applicants prior to hiring and child abuse reporting requirements.

In Wantagh and Seaford Have a plan, know the plan and enact the plan Detective Sergeant William Leahy of Homeland Security told audience members that “the social reality has changed. You must look at your facilities and evaluate it. Conduct a hazard and risk assessment; identify areas of improvement. What upgrades and repairs need to be made? Identify areas for personnel training. The key is to take offenders off target,” he said. “Remember that offenders learn from each other, so what’s next? Think out of the box because he is thinking out of the box.” To address issues of school safety and violence prevention, the Safe Schools Against Violence in Education Act (Project SAVE) was passed by the state Legislature and signed into law on July 24, 2000. Project SAVE provides teachers and other school personnel opportunities to be involved in the development of school district policies and procedures relating to safe schools, said the website NYSUT. Each school district must have districtwide safety plans, building-level

General information about school security is available on each district’s website. In an open letter to the public found on the Wantagh School District’s website, Acting Superintendent Maureen Goldberg wrote after the Newtown, Connecticut, shooting that “Mr. Abrams, our director of facilities and I visited every school and personally reviewed security procedures with appropriate staff. “Situations like these give us cause to reflect on our own practices and procedures as we look toward providing the safest environment for our students. Our district has comprehensive plans in place for each school which have been shared with local law enforcement. Routine safety drills are conducted with lockdown plans readily available within classrooms. “Our three elementary schools are equipped with electronic door-entry systems and our secondary schools have security personnel assigned to main entranceways. In addition, at the secondary level, teachers are assigned to hall duties throughout the day which (continued on page 14)

Through a series of themes from “crazy sock day” to wearing “all red,” students in the Seaford School District showed their support for the national prevention awareness campaign Red Ribbon Week and pledged to lead healthy lifestyles void of tobacco, alcohol and drugs. At the Middle School, Red Ribbon activities focused on the theme, “I Elect to be Drug Free.” Students wore red, white and blue to show the spirit of an election year while displaying their choice to stay away from drugs. Throughout the week, students also wore jeans for “I’m a Jean-I-Us-I’m Drug Free” day, crazy hats for “Put a Cap on Drugs” and sweats for “Staying Drug Free is No Sweat” day. They signed pledges to be drug-free that hung on huge red ribbons in the cafeteria. And, club members from Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) made

posters and broadcast daily morning announcements with a fact or statistic about alcohol and other drugs. Activities at both the Harbor and Manor Elementary Schools centered on safety and how to make good choices. Age-appropriate lessons, reinforced with puppets and songs, were delivered by the Child Abuse Prevention Services, the Nassau County Police Department and the Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. Topics such as, “Cybersmartz,” how to “Steer Clear of Bullies” and “Too Good for Drugs” were presented. Teachers performed a puppet show for third and fourth graders called “Nic and Friends,” to illustrate the dangers of cigarettes and alcohol. At Manor Elementary School, students also planted red tulip bulbs as a symbol of making good choices and leading healthy lifestyles.

Violence in schools – addressing a fact of life from page 10 provide further supervision. “At the elementary level teachers are assigned to hall and bus duties during arrival and dismissal times. In reviewing some of our practices, we decided to implement further security measures to include limited and controlled point-of-entry at

each building and the addition of a security guard at each of our elementary schools,” she wrote. In Seaford, Superintendent Brian Conboy wrote in a prepared statement for The Citizen that “the district’s number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of our students. We routinely

review our safety measures and in light of the Sandy Hook tragedy, recommendations made by our district Safety Committee, made up of district administrators, staff, a...police officer and a high school student representative, were swiftly implemented. “The district currently has the presence

of security officers at every school and all school doors are locked throughout the school day. No one can enter a school building without photo ID or registering at the front desk. The district is considering additional safety options during our 2013-2014 school budget planning discussions, which are underway.”
