Sound Smart at a Party A new infants who before they were heavier

study suggests that are given antibiotics turned six-months-old later in life. Research-

ers looked at 11,532 infants and found that the babies who received antibiotics between birth and five months were heavier than other babies between 10 and 20 months, and by 38 months were 22 percent more likely to be overweight. While more work is needed to confirm the link, scientists believe that the drugs could be affecting healthy bacteria in the gut, changing the way the children absorb calories and nutrients… A woman in Pennsylvania told police that her twin sister had stolen $206 worth of items from a hotel room. The only problem is, she doesn’t

have a twin. According to police Jennifer Brown, 31, took bedclothes, an alarm clock, coffee pot, basket and hair dryer from the Holiday Inn in Big Beaver on Aug. 5. After they found her

at another nearby hotel, Brown told officers that it was her sister who had taken the goods. Police quickly found no record of a twin, and when they confronted her she claimed that her sister had conveniently just returned the items. Brown was arrested and charged with false reports and theft… This is not going to make the “Above the Influence” campaign happy. Researchers say that a new

study found that college-age students who binge drink are actually happier than those who do not. They found that most binge drinkers belong to so-called high-status groups that include being white, wealthy and male, and many of the 1,600 students surveyed drank heavily to elevate their social status. Binge drinking is defined as having four drinks in one occasion for women and more than five drinks for men. While everyone may seem happy, the study did find that past evidence that binge drinking leads to

problems like alcoholism, violence and poor grades still rings true… A French inmate is so desperate to move to another prison that he mailed part of his severed finger to the justice minister. The body part was

delivered in an envelope to the offices of Justice Minister Christiane Taubira, along with a letter where the prisoner asked to be transferred to a prison that’s closer to his family. According to Reuters, French jails are suffering from overpopulation and hit a record 67,000 inmates this year…

A Message From the Publisher Allow me to begin with a wild understatement: Our industry is changing rapidly. The business of news has been beset by turbulence the likes of which few could have imagined only a decade ago. Pointedly, this was precisely when we decided to dive into it. The past 10 years have been challenging, interesting, frantic and, ultimately, extremely rewarding. But those who resist change don’t simply wither; they die. As such we have changed with the times to the extent that our resources would allow. But running a business—and it is a business—is not simply about surviving. It’s about thriving. To borrow from Shakespeare, in order to thrive, the Long Island Press must undergo a sea change. Over the next few months we will be trickling out information as to the nature of our transformation. The purpose of this letter is to chart the course for where we are headed and make an exciting announcement about who will be leading us. As we live on an island I will maintain the maritime analogy to explain our journey, both past and present. Launching an alternative-weekly newspaper on Long Island was a risky endeavor, as those who came before us had failed. Robbie Woliver, the founding Editor in Chief of the Press, believed that there was a path, however, for people more experienced in navigating the strange, unforgiving waters of Long Island. Not only was he correct, but he was the right person to launch the paper and lead our journey. Robbie is a talented writer and editor with an entrepreneurial spirit. He saw the paper in all of its functions and participated in every one. Under his watchful eye, we navigated the rocks and the buoys by changing course several times until we found our rhythm and direction. And then he left us in search of new adventures. But he left behind a talented crew, ready and eager to take the wheel. The “Michaels”—Michael Martino and Michael Patrick Nelson—would see us through the transition, which marked the moment that the Press began to migrate aggressively into the digital realm. Michael (of the Martino persuasion) ultimately moved on as well, into a role with Nassau County government. He is sorely missed. Michael Nelson took charge of the ship and it was the most natural transition imaginable. Michael Nelson was one of the paper’s “originals” and possessed a deep abiding passion for the written word. To put it bluntly, Michael is the most brilliant writer I have ever worked with, particularly when writing about music. But Michael shunned the spotlight, preferring to mentor those around him and push us all to travel further from shore, go deeper. This summer the editors at Stereogum.com, one of the most 4

influential music websites on the planet, approached Michael to join their team. Knowing him as we do, our only option was to nod quietly in agreement when he told us he didn’t think he could pass it up. We knew. As painful as it was, we all knew it was the right move for him. I have been incredibly fortunate over the past decade to have worked closely with all of the individuals named above, as well as the talented team of writers they collaborated with and inspired. Now, the Press is faced once again with the realization that if we do nothing—if we do not change course and explore new territories—we run the risk of capsizing. No, the only answer for us is to move forward and reach beyond what we thought was possible. To travel further toward the horizon until we can no longer see the lights from shore. Our editorial team is comprised of seasoned veterans such as Christopher Twarowski, Jaclyn Gallucci, Timothy Bolger and Spencer Rumsey, as well as talented young writers such as Rashed Mian, Licia Avelar and Lindsay Christ. They are the epitome of professionalism and the engine behind this publication. Together they have influenced policy and public opinion on Long Island in a fair and objective fashion. It’s an outstanding lineup and they’re anxious to set sail. Sailing far from home into uncharted waters requires a captain who is both fearless and seasoned. This person must also have absolute command and knowledge of our vessel; to understand both its strengths and its weaknesses. (After all, we’re likely to take on water during the journey… Best to know where the holes are before we set sail.) The captain we need must therefore come from within. It’s the only way. Christopher Twarowski holds an M.A. and M.S. from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. As a reporter he is intrepid and tenacious, and as an editor he is tremendously supportive. And although he is personally the most decorated writer on our team (Chris has earned more than 80 editorial awards and accolades), he is universally recognized as the ultimate team player. Most of all, he is beloved. For these, and many more reasons, he is the perfect person to captain our ship and lead us into the future. As we prepare ourselves for another decade of outstanding journalism, please join us in welcoming Christopher Twarowski as the new Editor in Chief of the Long Island Press. In our September 6th edition, you’ll hear directly from him, as Chris’ words will occupy this spot. None of us know what lies ahead in the newspaper industry, but we at the Press know our destiny is “out there” somewhere in deeper waters. Congratulations, Chris.  —Jed Morey P r e s s P l ay

The Target

LiLo—OFF TARGET Lindsay Lohan is in the middle of a burglary investigation after spending the night at a Hollywood Hills party with two guests in tow. Although Lindsay denies it, the host claims expensive items, including watches and sunglasses, were stolen by LiLo’s crew. When police began questioning her, Lindsay asked them if she was a suspect. When an officer told her she wasn’t, she bounced. Hey, she may not idol be able to drive down the road without hitting a parked car guy k and/or pedestrian, but the girl knows her rights! w a h mo

AMERICAN IDOL—BULL’S EYE Nicki Minaj and Kanye West are in talks to join Mariah Carey on the AI judge’s panel this season. Mariah is reportedly not happy, but it’s good news for the show’s producers who obviously realize the only chance at saving what’s become a country music singing contest is to load the panel with the biggest egos they can find and lure viewers in with the promise of diva wars. Works for us!

SERIAL KILLERS—OFF TARGET The childhood home of Jeffrey Dahmer, and the site of his first of 17 murders, is for sale in northern Ohio, and the real-estate ad describes the property as a “charming three bedroom, two-and-a-half bath ranch home” that is “situated on almost two acres of lush woodland…that includes a pond and walking trails.” Of course, they left out the part about the decomposing hitchhiker found dismembered and beaten to death with a barbell in the lush woodland. What, no good? AIRPORT SECURITY—PARTIAL SCORE The TSA releases a list of items that have been confiscated so far in 2012 at airport security checkpoints and it includes: loaded firearms, a chainsaw, a cannonball, venomous snakes and a grenade launcher. So, in other words, while some travelers were having panic attacks over whether or not their toothpaste tubes exceeded the 3-ounce limit, others were gassing up their chainsaws. KIRK CAMERON—OFF TARGET The former Growing Pains star and self-proclaimed devout Christian defends Rep. Todd Akin’s comment about “legitimate rape,” saying that the Senate candidate shouldn’t be judged on one interview. Cameron is also the guy who called homosexuality “detrimental and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.” Spoken like a true Christian, Kirk!

The Pink Slip

Rep. Todd Akin Nothing like a six-term, pro-life congressman’s very public lesson in female reproductive biology to reveal just how comically low one can go when trying to backtrack on an insulting off-the-cuff comment. Just days after winning a Missouri Republican primary in his quest to unseat Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill, Akin told a reporter that women’s bodies can “shut the whole thing down” in cases of pregnancies resulting from “legitimate rape.” You know, unlike all those illegitimate rape victims carrying their perpetrators’ babies. He later apologized, said he “misspoke” and blamed liberals. But it was too late. No matter how many conservative talk radio shows he went on, Akin’s GOP backers couldn’t pull their campaign funds fast enough. Everyone from the head of the Republican National Committee to the Missouri GOP—even presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his rabidly antiabortion running mate Paul Ryan—called on Akin to drop out. Instead he dug in his heels, blasted the party for not standing by him and turned to fellow far-right pro-lifers for support to see him through to November. Look, buddy. We know you think you can play the ‘ol Republican victimization card on this one. But you’re really just making your Midwestern hometown a national laughing stock—perhaps the only rape joke everyone gets. You’re from The Show Me state and you’ve been shown the door. Now use it... You’re fired!

MOHAWK GUY—BULL’S EYE Mars rover Curiosity Flight Director Bobak Ferdowsi, dubbed “Mohawk Guy” by President Obama, becomes a social media sensation after sporting a red and black mohawk with yellow stars on the sides of his head during the rover landing and is now receiving marriage proposals and tons of fanmail via Twitter. From the universe, to the Twitterverse!

“Over the objections—where they sound like squealing pigs—over the objections of Romney and all of his allies, we passed some of the toughest Wall Street regulations in history.” —Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday during a speech in Minneapolis. Biden recently came under fire for saying Romney will repeal the legislation and “put ya’ll back in chains.”

1. WATCH PUSSY RIOT’S “PUNK PRAYER”: Pussy Riot is the provocative Russian punk band that was arrested in March after a performance in Moscow’s main cathedral calling for the Virgin Mary to protect Russia against Vladimir Putin, who was elected two weeks later. The band members were sentenced to two years in prison Aug. 17, sparking protests in more than 50 cities. Some big names have also come forward in support of the band, including Paul McCartney, Madonna and Bjork. The band members were charged with “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred,” making it even harder to take this sentencing seriously.

The Book THE SPOILER BY ANNALENA MCAFEE Sometimes the story behind the story is the story you really want to read, as this debut novel by Annalena McAfee, a respected British journalist and the wife of acclaimed novelist Ian (“Atonement”) McEwan, shows so well in this smart, snarky satire of London’s tabloid news biz. It’s the late 1990s, just before the Web juggernaut, when expense accounts ran high, reporters and editors got higher and journalistic standards sank as low as they could go—as the scandals rocking Rupert Murdoch’s Fleet Street have since revealed. Here we meet two women at a key juncture in their respective careers. Honor Tait, now in her 80s, is a legendary war correspondent with a new book to plug; Tamara Sim, in her 20s, is slogging through trash at a gossip rag. When Honor was her age, she was covering the liberation of Buchenwald, while Tamara’s stuck uncovering celebrity cellulite. As Tamara’s editor—her married ex-lover—tells her at a bar, “I’m counting on you for some quality sleaze.” Can she deliver the goods before the competition? Not surprisingly, the subject of the profile does not wish to share intimate details of her private life, making clear what she thinks her profession has become: publishing “imbecilic morality tales for an amoral age.” In the lingo, a “spoiler” means ruining what a rival thought was an exclusive story. Here, McAfee adroitly plots the truth pursuit through clever twists and turns, and shows what the news of the world is too often made of. —Spencer Rumsey

B-List B-Day

PEE-WEE “HA HA!” HERMAN August 27, 1952 Paul Reubens, a Virgo, is best known for playing the character Pee-wee Herman during the 1980s. Virgos are known for being successful when their confidence is high, and this was certainly the case for Reubens from 1986 to 1990, when Pee-wee’s Playhouse was airing. The children’s show enjoyed great success, winning 15 Emmys and garnering much critical praise. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and a year later, Reubens was arrested for pleasuring himself in an adult theater. Virgos are said to be sensitive, and that turned out to be true in Pee-wee’s case, as he remained in a state of shock for weeks, and refused to give interviews for several years. Then in 2009, the return of The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway was announced. Reubens’ future plans also include two movie scripts, and since Virgos are givers, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect more from everyone’s favorite bow tiewearing, Glen Plaid suit-donning character.

Suzanne Reek, President Michele Iallonardi, Board Member Nassau Suffolk Chapter of the Autism Society of America

Although Suzanne Reek of Wantagh and Michele Iallonardi of Hauppauge live miles apart, they were looking for the same thing for their

children with autism: an opportunity for them to participate in activities as a family. For many of these children, too much noise, light, people or stimulation can lead to a sensory overload and culminate in a meltdown. A trip to the movies or a museum would be almost impossible because many lack the social skills for coping with the give and take of normal life. Suzanne and Michele met when they joined the Nassau-Suffolk Chapter of the Autism Society of America (NSASA), which services more than 1,400 Long Island families. The grassroots non-profit is staffed by unpaid volunteers who fundraise to provide free events for these families so they

can fully participate as members of the community. An outing to the movies, roller skating, horseback riding and even surfing used to be an impossible dream for these families, but not anymore. “Our kids have every right to be out in the community,” says Michele, a member of NSASA’s board of directors. “Everyone on the board has at least one child with autism,” says Suzanne, president of NSASA. Both women credit the organization with giving their family the ability to go on outings together with other people in the same situation. NSASA pays for the entertainment from the money that they’ve raised. “You can see exactly where your money is being spent,” Suzanne says. It can take a long time before a child with autism can learn to actually sit through a movie. Sometimes it can take years. “We practice in a structured environment,” Michele explains. If a child can’t stand still or begins to act out, there’s no embarrassment. Everyone understands that sometimes a child with autism can be difficult. Suzanne and Michele plan over 100 events a year, and one or both of them are in attendance at every function. Siblings also get to do join in all the fun. “We take these children out of isolation,” Michele says. While many non profits would welcome free tickets to an event, the NSASA prefers to pay their own way. “It’s great if they give us a discount, but we want the children to have the full experience,” Suzanne explains. “Kids deserve to do this,” she says. They believe that paying for the entertainment ensures that their host is providing all of their services for the children to enjoy. Both women agree that attending private performances at the BroadHollow Theater in Elmont is one of their favorite outings. “The kids love it,” Suzanne says. “Everyone in the play gets it,” Michele adds. “They love when we come.” The NSASA outings have also helped many parents make new friends with people who understand what it’s like to raise a child or children with autism. Michele has three boys, two who are on the autism spectrum. “It’s all I had going on,” says Michele. “It was my focus completely.” Joining the NSASA helped broaden her horizons and she was able to complete her graduate studies and recently earned her MBA. “My life is spreading out now,” she says happily.

The Next Fortune 52 Networking Event

will be Tuesday, October 2, 2012, at Tilles center for the performing arts from 6 - 8pm. to be a part of this evenT, email Beverly at bfortune@longislandpress com. ///////////////////////

Suzanne is a retired police sergeant with the New York Police Department. Her son is enrolled at the Genesis School in Plainview and is doing well, she says. Both women worry about what’s in store for their children as they grow older, so for now they continue teaching them social skills through the group outings. “Michele and I talk to each other every day,” Suzanne says, “and we plan for what we can do for the kids right now.” In addition to the variety of events that are offered, funds are also used for college scholarships for the siblings and volunteers at NSASA. Suzanne says they also donate iPads to public and private programs that service children with autism. The iPad is in very high demand and they say has revolutionized the way some children with autism communicate. The number of children being diagnosed with autism is rising at an alarming rate and is reportedly one in 54 for males and one in eight overall. The women say many issues still need to be addressed, especially for more respite services for caregivers. The constant stress of raising a child with autism can sometimes overwhelm the caregiver and the family. The disorder affects each child differently so what works for one might not be effective for another child. “Parents need to receive some respite,” Suzanne says. “Right now its availability is very limited.” Both women credit the entire NSASA board and their volunteers for making their outings a great experience for the entire family. “All of us are doing a good job together,” Suzanne says proudly. People with autism who interact with others on the spectrum can develop friendships and are very capable of loving their family and each other. Giving parents small victories like going to the movies can change their outlook about what lies ahead for their children. Suzanne and Michele see those victories at every event. “It’s such a great feeling to provide an escape for the whole family.” For more information, visit www.nsasa.org. Email Suzanne at suereek@aol.com and Michele at lumardi@verizon.net.

Jerry’s Ink BY JERRY DELLA FEMINA, Publisher, the Independent

Time For “Democrats For Romney” Why not? Almost all of my friends are Democrats; all of them voted for Barack Obama in 2008. Ask them these days, as I have, if they plan to vote for Obama this November, and they’ll give you an “Oh shucks” sad smile, look down, look back up with guilty eyes and say “I’m disappointed.” Then they play the party line and say, “But Romney? But Ryan?” I’m not talking about those African Americans, Latinos and lockstep Democrats who’ll blindly vote for Obama no matter how high unemployment may be or what shape this country may be in. I’m talking about a good number of intelligent, caring, middle-class Democrats who are a soft nudge away from casting their vote for Romney. All they need to know is they’re not alone. Democrats were disappointed in 1980. They’d had, under President Jimmy Carter, four years of inflation, unemployment and gas rationing. Yet, when asked, they said, “But Reagan?” At this point in 1980, Carter was nine points ahead of Ronald Reagan in the polls. Reagan had been slimed by the press and pro-Jimmy Carter forces as being dumb and bumbling. Sound familiar? Carter treated Reagan as a ridiculous figure who, among other things, was ignorant of details of nuclear-weapons policy. Reagan promised economic growth and asked Democrats, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” In the end, Reagan proved that his brand of good-natured conservatism could win by a huge margin. But a lot of credit for the win must go to “Democrats for Reagan.” Who were they? Well, Wikipedia says: “They were mostly white, socially conservative blue-collar workers, who lived in the Northeast, and were attracted to Reagan’s social conservatism. “Stan Greenberg, a respected Democratic pollster, analyzed white, largely unionized auto workers in suburban Macomb County, Mich., just north of Detroit. The county voted 63 percent for John F. Kennedy in 1960 and 66 percent for Reagan in 1984. He concluded that Reagan Democrats no longer saw Democrats as champions of their middle-class aspirations, but

instead saw the party as working primarily for the benefit of others, especially African Americans and the very poor. “Democrat Bill Clinton targeted the Reagan Democrats with considerable success in 1992 and 1996.” Here’s an example of a commercial that would win Democratic votes for Mitt Romney and maybe turn the election his way: It would use Democrats who’ve actually decided to vote for Romney. It would be word-forword true, though soft in tone. It would come as a welcome relief for voters of both parties who’ve have had it up to here with negative false commercials. (The “Mitt Romney killed my cancerstricken wife when he was at Bain Capital” is the best example.) The commercial would open with a man, about 40, sitting in his living room with his wife and kids seated next to him. He looks into the camera and says: “I’ve voted Democratic all my life. In 2008 I voted for Barack Obama. It was a vote I am proud of. I wanted to be part of the generation that voted a black man into the presidency of the United States. It was the right vote for the right reason. But, sadly, it was for the wrong man. I don’t think this country can survive four more years of Barack Obama as president. I know my family can’t. I lost my job two years ago, and I fear I’m going to lose my house. Mitt Romney has the business experience to bring back our economy fast. He has my vote.” Other Democrats for Romney commercials would feature: A woman who wanted Hillary Clinton in 2008 but voted for Obama in the general election; a middle-class African-American owner of a declining small business; a student who enthusiastically cast his first vote in 2008 for Obama but hasn’t been able to find a job since then. Etc., etc., etc. Again, these commercials wouldn’t slam you in the head but deliver a soft nudge to Democrats who, in their heart of hearts, must know that four more years of Barack Obama’s anti-business, share-the-wealth policies will cripple this great country we all love. This article was first published in The New York Post on Aug. 17.

Local 830, said in a statement. “Clearly the federal courts agree that the Constitution of this great country does protect all contracts including labor agreements.  We believe this ruling is favorable not just for CSEA but for all labor unions.” Yet even with Spatt’s roadblock ruling, sharp-tongued union bosses such as Laricchiuta know that the assault is far from over—as Nassau County officials strategize and regroup. So, with Labor Day weekend fast approaching, the longstanding day of union marching (and barbecuing) comes with this somber assessment: The holiday ain’t what it used to be.

Working on a scheme

Nassau’s probation department could probably use Hilliard but the county’s continuing fiscal difficulties, coupled with Mangano’s steadfast refusal to raise property taxes—Nassau ranks as one of the highest taxed suburban counties in the nation— don’t bode well. Mangano’s efforts to slash $41 million from his budget by changing the provisions of the county’s contracts with its five public labor unions was dealt a major setback by Judge Spatt. In May, the Republicans in the Nassau

Legislature, who have a 10-9 majority over the Democrats, gave Mangano unilateral authority to open up the collective bargaining agreements to achieve the spending cuts after the Democrats had blocked the county’s borrowing the money to pay outstanding property tax refunds. The reason? They’re in a bitter fight with the Republicans over the Nassau GOP’s redistricting plan that threatens to make them more of a minority in the legislature than they already are. “Politics have hit rock bottom in Nassau County: no trust, no

cooperation,” says Jim Carver, president of the Nassau Police Benevolent Association, one of the unions affected by the ruling. “You look at Suffolk, and although they have two parties out there, they’ve always seemed to be able to work something out in a bipartisan manner.” Besides the injunction, the federal judge also refused Nassau’s request to get the unions to post a $40 million bond in escrow that would be used for property tax refunds. Nassau County Attorney John Ciampoli tells the Press he’s encouraged

by openings he sees in Spatt’s ruling that his side may still prevail. “It’s not that bad,” he says. “It’s very narrow. It only affects, frankly, one or two subparagraphs of the law…. I think there are a couple of wrinkles in there that might make it vulnerable to an appeal.” Although the county hasn’t decided whether to appeal, Ciampoli believes the ruling may force the county to take more draconian measures with its employees. “In some ways it could be a pyrrhic victory for the unions,” says Ciampoli. “If I were the unions, I don’t know that I’d be celebrating quite too much because if I can’t alter some provisions in contracts, and if I presume that the recalcitrance of some of the members of organized labor to negotiate givebacks remains in place, what alternatives does that leave? …. There are those who have said that our union contracts are goldplated. Maybe it’s time to take a little of the gold-plating off so that we can keep as many people working as possible and we cannot tax the taxpayers of the Continued on page 14

county to death.” Legis. Peter Schmitt (R-Massapequa), the legislature’s presiding officer, agrees. “In times of recession, everyone must give a little,” he says. “Extravagant union contracts are no longer sustainable, and raising property taxes is not an option.”  Mangano says the ruling will likely mean more layoffs. “The court’s decision comes weeks after I implemented a workforce reduction plan that cut the total headcount by over 1,800 positions since 2010,” says Mangano in a statement.  “My administration will continue to work to deliver services while protecting residents from a property tax hike.” Not surprisingly, Democrats in the Nassau legislature saw the ruling in a different light. “Instead of working on real solutions to fix the ongoing budget crisis, Ed Mangano again has wasted valuable taxpayer resources on another unsuccessful and costly legal battle,” Legis. Kevan Abrahams (D-Hempstead), the minority leader, says in a statement. “In Suffolk the county executive has established a working relationship with the union leaders and

through that relationship he has been able to produce real savings to current and future taxpayers. Unfortunately, in Nassau, County Executive Mangano has decided the best way to negotiate with the unions is through threats and all-out war.” Earlier this month, Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, a Democrat, announced that he’d reached a deal

“Without NIFA in place, I’d be very confident that the county executive and I could work out a deal,” says Carver. He joined the plaintiffs—the CSEA Local 830, the Nassau Detectives Association, Inc., the Nassau County Sheriffs Officers Association and the Superior Officers Association—in solidarity over Spatt’s ruling.

with Noel DiGerolamo, president of the Suffolk Police Benevolent Association, on a tentative eight-year contract, subject to union approval, which forgoes retroactive pay raises and slows the rate of pay hikes for new officers. In Nassau, Carver is reportedly locked in contentious negotiations on concessions and other issues with Mangano, and what they work out must be approved by NIFA.

“I think it’s a big win, not only for Nassau County employees, but for everybody throughout the country because if [Mangano] would have prevailed here, you know that Suffolk, the state, everybody would have tried to enact their own laws that would enable them to breach contracts at will after they’ve been fairly negotiated,” says Carver. “If Ed Mangano would govern

per his instincts and not...a political agenda, I think we’d all be better off,” says Laricchiuta. His CSEA local represents more than 9,000 members in Nassau, including nearly 6,000 people working for the county and 3,000 working for the Nassau Health Care Corporation. CSEA has given Nassau some $132 million in labor concessions since 2008, according to Laricchiuta, and it has another suit pending against NIFA to try to overturn the wage freeze it imposed more than a year ago. His frustration with the county is palpable, adding that the county’s layoffs have even started to impact the county’s 911 call center, which he claims had only one person on duty between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. on a recent Saturday morning. “If you have a home invasion, do you want to get a busy signal when you dial 911? What kind of shit is that!?” he exclaims to the Press. “We’re the highest-taxed county in America and our services mirror those from a small town in Mississippi.”

working as a paramedic for three years, providing Nassau residents “the highest level of pre-hospital emergency care,” he says. He took a pay cut to work for the county. “It seemed like a good career move,” says Pollack, seated at his kitchen table in Williston Park as his wife Melissa, a physical therapist, nursed a cup of coffee by the sink. But it hasn’t worked out that way. He figures he’s making about $25,000 to $30,000 less than where he’d be if he’d stayed with North Shore-LIJ and he brings home about $2,000 a month. He says he loves what he does for the county but “layoffs and furloughs have been threatened pretty much my entire career [here] so far.” He says because he has no job security he and his wife live with the constant fear that if he’s laid off, they’d lose their home. The couple, who’ve been married more than seven years, are working almost around the clock to make ends meet. They juggle their schedules so one of them can look after their kids and they don’t have to pay for child care.

Other problems can come up, too. “Last night I was treating somebody who was so out of control she kicked me in the head,” he says, with a stoic expression, because he knew the woman meant no harm.

Steve Bellone has a better relationship with his police union than Mangano has with his—Suffolk PBA president Noel DiGerolamo says Bellone is a “breath of fresh air” compared to his predecessor, Steve Levy—that’s not the case with the Suffolk County Association of Municipal Employees, who have lost 300 workers since he took office and determined that the county was facing a projected $530 million deficit by the end of 2013. “We are the lowest-paid employees in Suffolk County,” says newly elected president Dan Farrell. “The problem we’re having here is [that] the county is trying to balance its budget on the backs of AME members… We didn’t cause this problem, yet they want to take it out on us and that’s the biggest challenge I’m facing.” Perhaps the most contentious issue between Farrell and Bellone is the county executive’s attempt to sell the John J. Foley Skilled Nursing Facility to private nursing home operators Israel Sherman and his nephew Samuel, which could mean that more than 200 AME workers are at risk. Bellone says the prospective buyers have promised to offer them jobs as well as keep the remaining 194 patients at the 264-bed building—and in turn Suffolk would get $23 million for the sale, which

16

Bellone could use to cut into his deficit. “How do you justify turning down an agreement that would cut the deficit by $30 million when you have a quality private sector operator who’s keeping all the patients and all of the staff?” says Bellone. “How would you justify not doing that in light of having to lay off all these employees because of the financial situation?” He says that Easter Seals, which had visited the facility several times, was interested in a private-public partnership but “they said maybe they could phase something in over three years.” Bellone reportedly wants to get the sale approved by Sept. 13. The latest offer does not sit well with Farrell, who defeated the previous AME union chief, Cheryl Felice, in an election this spring largely over her going along with Levy’s attempt to sell the facility to a different private operator—a move Farrell called “unconscionable” because the Foley workers definitely would have lost their jobs. Of course, at that point, the offer to the county was $36 million. Now the price has dropped. “We’ve been hitting brick walls with the sale of John J. Foley,” Farrell says. “They’ve been refusing to meet and sit down with us.”

Interestingly, the fate of the nursing home got drawn into the hotly contested Congressional race between incumbent Rep. Tim Bishop (D-Southampton) and his conservative Republican challenger, millionaire entrepreneur Randy Altschuler, who showed up to testify at one of the county’s recent public hearings on the Foley sale but didn’t stick around to say his piece, raising questions about his motives. As one political insider, who asked not to be identified, put it: “In Suffolk County a lot of the public employees are Republican. Maybe the rank and file are paying union dues for stuff they don’t want to support.” Altschuler’s campaign spokesman, Diana Weir, tells the Press: “His stance was not about pro-union or anti-union; it’s about pro-Suffolk County taxpayers. And making sure that the county was getting the best deal possible, and right now he’s not sure that’s happened.” Bishop’s spokesman, Robert Pierce, declined to comment on Altschuler’s appearance at the legislature but he did note that nationwide, the Republicans in Congress and the statehouse are no friend to labor. In Wisconsin, Gov. Scott Walker rebuffed a June recall election by unions and their supporters who were furious that the Republican had tossed

out the collective bargaining agreement with the state’s public unions. (Labor was reportedly outspent 20-1.) In Nassau, Mangano attempted to repeat that scenario, although one person close to the county executive but not authorized to speak, tells the Press that Mangano had the idea before Walker. One thing people on both sides of the aisle can agree on is that Labor Day has lost its luster.

Still marching

For over a century Americans have been celebrating Labor Day since it became a federal holiday in 1894. Though there’s some debate about who came up with the idea, the first September commemoration was in New York on a Tuesday in 1882, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, because the Central Labor Union wanted to celebrate a “workingmen’s holiday.” A couple of years later the first Monday in the month became officially designated as Labor Day— whereas May 1st will always be known as International Workers Day, when all the red flags unfurl. Tellingly, New York was the first state to introduce a Labor Day bill, but Oregon was the first state to pass it in 1887. Today New York is still a leader

in union membership, having the highest percentage in the country. On Long Island, about 25 percent of the workforce, in both private and public sectors, are unionized, according to Hofstra labor economists G. DeFreitas and B. Sengupta—nationwide the figure is roughly 11 percent although some reports say it’s as low as 7 percent. Either way, it’s a far cry from what it was in the 1960s at the height of labor power when a quarter of the American workforce was unionized. One of Long Island’s still most powerful union men refuses to bend. “Labor can never match Big Business when it comes to money,” says John Durso, president of the Long Island Federation of Labor and head of Local 338, the 19,000 strong retail workers union. “All we can do is talk about the issues and try to overcome the corporate mentality and the antiworker attitude that the big corporations spend their money on.” He’s proud of the accomplishments that labor has brought to America. “It is the labor movement that is leading the charge to build up the middle class and give strength to our communities,” he says. “I like to tell people we’re the folks who brought you the weekend.”

I’m proud of their commitment to bettering the lives of others. I see it every single day.” But in these troubled times, the message may be less about banding together and more about hanging on.

She’s third on the list of call-backs. “I’m praying for a miracle. I really am. I miss working,” Hilliard says. “I miss getting up and that feeling of being needed.”

A Generation in a Sandwich By John Fischer

Marie Roach of Syosset describes her situation up until a year and a half ago as a “financial burden,” but an “educational experience.” The single mother’s life changed dramatically in 2006 when her then81-year-old mother Jeanne, with whom she lived, began showing signs of dementia. After a nearstroke landed Jeanne in rehab, Roach assumed the combined responsibilities of caring for her—leaving others to do so when she was at work—and her own 10-year-old daughter, Sara.

While her brothers and daughter pitched in to help, Roach, then 42, eventually concluded that her mother required intensive care, since Jeanne’s disease progressively worsened. The decision, though not easy, allowed her and Sara to spend more time together. “If you don’t have a lot of support in caring for either side, if it’s going to impact your children too much, you need someone else to take care of your parent,” she tells the Press.

This is a new phenomenon. It hasn’t happened previously.” “They care enough to care,”

angel face To Fidelis Care, every child is an angel. That's why we cover kids with quality, affordable health insurance through Child Health Plus, a New York State-sponsored health insurance program offered by Fidelis Care. • If your child needs health insurance, Fidelis Care can help. • Almost every child up to age 19 in New York State is eligible! • And, we help members keep their health insurance each year.

Quality Health Coverage. It’s Our Mission. Some children who had employer-based health insurance coverage within the past six months may be subject to a waiting period before they can enroll in Child Health Plus. This will depend on your household income and the reason your children lost employer-based coverage.

Back-to-School Is A Great Time For Checkups And Immunizations With the new school year just weeks away, Fidelis Care encourages parents to speak with their children’s doctors to ensure that they are in good health, and able to perform to their full potential when they return to the classroom. Unfortunately, not every child sees a doctor regularly. Lack of health insurance prevents many children from receiving the routine and preventive medical care they need. In New York City and Long Island alone, there are more than 200,000 uninsured children. If a child needs health insurance, Fidelis Care may be able to help. According to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, children without health insurance are 10 times more likely to go without needed care. Hunger, poor dental care, and chronic illnesses such as asthma result in increased rates of absenteeism and poor academic performance. Every year, more than 51 million school hours are missed because of dentalrelated illness, and more than 14 million school days are missed due to childhood asthma. Health related absences can be largely avoided if students have health insurance and regular access to care. Nearly every child in New York qualifies for coverage through the state’s Child Health Plus program, regardless of family income. Members are covered for checkups, preventive care, vaccinations, prescriptions, eye exams, dental care, hospital and emergency care, and more. The Department of Health’s 2011 Consumer Guides for Managed Care ranked Fidelis Care’s Child Health Plus plan best in the state for provision of quality care and member satisfaction. One of the most important things parents can do to safeguard

their child’s health is to keep vaccinations up-to-date. Vaccines are safe, and effective at enhancing the body’s natural defenses against disease. Should a vaccinated individual contract the disease, the effects are often greatly reduced due to the protection produced by the vaccination. Unfortunately an increasing number of children are not being vaccinated, placing themselves and their communities at risk. As a result, diseases that were once firmly under control like measles, mumps, and whooping cough are becoming more common. Fidelis Care encourages parents to speak with their child’s doctor about the important protections that vaccines can provide not only to their child, but to family members, classmates, and neighbors as well. In addition to Child Health Plus, Fidelis Care offers quality coverage for people of all ages through Family Health Plus, Medicaid Managed Care, Medicare Advantage and Dual Advantage, and two managed long-term care plans – Fidelis Care at Home and Medicaid Advantage Plus, available in certain counties. With a growing statewide network of more than 51,000 providers, Fidelis Care members receive care from physicians whom they know and trust in their own communities. Fidelis Care is committed to ensuring that every New Yorker has access to quality, affordable health care that is provided with dignity and respect. More than 793,000 New Yorkers of all ages have chosen Fidelis Care as their health insurance provider. Fidelis Care representatives make applying for health coverage convenient and easy, and are available to meet with applicants in the comfort and privacy of their homes.

“Nearly every child in New York qualifies for coverage through the state’s Child Health Plus program, regardless of family income.”

Kills Allergy Symptoms Fast & Safely

No drugs. No side-effects. No prescriptions. Over 40 million Americans suffer from allergies. And every year, billions of dollars of over-the-counter medications are sold. The big drug companies would like you to believe that suppressing your symptoms with their synthetic drugs is your best recourse against allergies. You don’t have to take dangerous drugs to suppress your symptoms. Natural remedies can do the job better, and without side-effects. The secret weapon against allergies contains the most effective natural allergy-fighters known to man (and... in the correct proportions): • Quercetin: an anti-inflammatory and histamine-blocker, its effect on allergies is unmatched by any other natural substance. • Vitamin C: proven over many years to significantly lower symptoms of allergies, colds, asthma and bronchitis. • Stinging Nettle: creates an antihistamine effect. • Bromelain: reduces inflammation by inhibiting kinin formation (which causes the swelling and pain). • N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC): breaks down the viscosity of mucous better than any other natural substance. This powerful all-natural allergy-fighter is NATURAL D-HIST, and it’s the most dominate approach to fighting allergies we’ve ever found. This amazing all-natural product works so well that we will refund your money if it doesn’t meet your expectations. How many big drug companies will give you that guarantee? NATURAL D-HIST (120 caps)….. $34.98

This Week: Best Arts Criticism—First Place Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review

By Mark Maranan, The Clipper, Bellport High School

For The Legend of Zelda’s 25th anniversary, Nintendo has released Skyward Sword in commemoration of this momentous (well, for me at least) event. Fellow gamers have called this game the Wii’s swan song, and there’s no doubt in my mind that this piece is worthy of the distinction. Right off the bat, the one feature that sets this game apart from previous Zelda titles and essentially other games of the same genre is the emphasis put on motion

Changing The Game’s

Sticky Fingaz Sticky Fingaz may be contemporary when it comes to his music, but during this conversation when he phoned in from L.A., the rapper also known as Kirk Jones wanted to make it clear that his down-home philosophy of life is solidly old-school. Currently costarring in the mean streets of Wall Street urban drama Changing The Game, Sticky talked about everything from his “abduction” into Onyx to The Art of War.

4. One of the philosophies put forth in Changing The Game, from The Art Of War, is to “be unpredictable, and gain the advantage.” Is that something you’ve embraced in your own life? I think so.

Hole In One

ADVERTORIAL

Garden City’s Webair Helps Local Golfer’s Dreams Come True Joe Horowitz finally feels like he’s part of a family. The 33-year-old professional golfer from Long Beach has been putting alongside other pro golfers for nearly a decade, garnering support from about a half-dozen corporations during that time as he worked his way up the world rankings in an attempt to join golf ’s most hallowed competition—the PGA Tour. Although Horowitz has yet to crack the cut of a PGA event—he missed out on last year’s U.S. Open by one stroke— he wholeheartedly believes that with the backing of his lone sponsor, LI-based web hosting company, Webair, he’ll be competing in next year’s U.S. Open against the game’s greats. “In the past, if I missed something like that by a shot, it would’ve been extremely difficult to deal with,” Horowitz says before his afternoon tee time at the Met Open, which is a stop on the Metropolitan Golf Association’s tour. “But honestly,” adds the two-time pro tournament winner, “when you have support like Webair…it honestly does soften the blow, because that’s what sponsors are for.” Horowitz, who can handle a guitar just as well as a nine-iron, says his relationship with Webair is far different than any he’s had with a corporate sponsor. Actually, he says, “It’s night and day.”

Long beach’s own champ Joe horowitz, left, feels at home with webair.

“It’s a little more than your basic sponsorship, because I actually took an interest in [Webair] and what they do,” Horowitz says. “A lot of athletes, they get a sponsorship, they put their name on a shirt and kind of disappear and see the guys two or three times a year.” Horowitz makes it a habit to drop by Webair’s Garden City offices a couple of times a week when he’s on LI, which makes him feel like part of the company, not just a hired gun who’s ordered to wear a shirt with the company logo emblazoned on it. “You almost feel like you want to show them that you earned every penny,” he adds. “Whether you’re a tech representative…or a sales executive, you have to earn your keep there and I feel the exact same way with my relationship with Webair.”
