Sound Smart at a Party Everybody hates when the vending machine steals their money, but most people don’t retaliate with fire. Debra Johnson was so angry

about losing her hard-earned cash in a 7-Up machine outside of a Piggly Wiggly store in North Carolina, that she decided to show it just how hot she felt. Johnson allegedly lit a newspaper on fire and stuffed it into the machine, and was caught doing so on surveillance video. She’s not ashamed of what she’s done, either. Local television station KLTV-TV reported that at her preliminary court hearing the 43-year-old said, “I’ll represent myself, ’cause I’m guilty.... I don’t need a lawyer to lie for me, cause I’mma tell you I done it.” Well, she lost points with us for setting a newspaper on fire (that is our livelihood), but at least she’s all for honesty…

issues and slept an average of nine hours nightly. Then for five nights they moved half of their bedtimes up an hour and the others back an hour. The children were monitored and the ones who had the earlier bedtime got

an average of 27.36 more minutes of sleep a night while the second group got 54.04 less minutes of sleep on average. The students’ teachers were asked to record the children’s behavior, and they reported that the kids who slept more were better behaved and more alert. The study

“I’m very excited to be joining The ‘X Factor’ team. I love the show, and I’ve been a big fan of Simon Cowell and the judges for a long time. Khloe and I have been friends for years, and I know we’ll be a great team and have a blast.” Mario Lopez on the recent announcement that he and Khloe Kardashian will be the new hosts on singing competition The X Factor. In this Sept. 23, 2012 file photo, Lopez arrives at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre, in Los Angeles. (Photo by Matt Sayles/ Invision/AP, File)

If you have unruly children, you may want to start putting them to bed earlier. A new study suggests

that just 27 minutes of extra sleep can have an impact on kids’ behavior. Researchers took 34 children between the ages of 7 and 10 who had no prior sleep, behavior, academic or health

will be published in the November 2012 issue of Pediatrics… A South African nursery school teacher may be looking at a time out for herself after she stuffed all 19 of her students into her tiny hatchback for a school trip. Melanie Minnie

was taking the kids to a local burger place when a photographer took a snapshot of the crammed Renault Clio. Minnie allegedly had three kids in the front seat, six in the hatch and 10 more in the back. The police finally came after someone noticed her unloading the kids at a shopping center. According to reports, Minnie was “startled” when she was pulled over, and stated that it was the first and last outing that she planned to take the kids on…

The county board of elections in Utica, NY, fails the Election Day spelling bee. Sample ballots from the

Oneida County Board of Elections had Barack Obama’s name spelled as “Barak.” Local newspaper the Utica Observer-Dispatch spotted the error on the board’s website, and Election Commissioner Pamela Mandryck said the templates sent to a printer would be retrieved and corrected in time for Election Day…

IGUANA—OFF TARGET After five alligators and a boa constrictor turn up on Long Island over nine days, a 3-foot-long iguana is found crawling down the street in Patchogue. What’s next, Reptilianoids!? Outside of Montauk!?

The Pink Slip The Jerk Who Shot AN Arrow Through The Neck of a Long Island Duck Why a duck? Why shoot an arrow through the throat of a tame, trusting Pekin—a bird that does not fly and has no reason to fear humans? But last weekend some sick person did the indefensible and wounded a hapless Long Island duck in North Patchogue. And now the Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is offering a $1,000 reward for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of this asshole archer. This was no wild mallard. It was somebody’s poor pet that became somebody else’s evil target practice. Fortunately, this duck’s luck did not run out; It was saved by a resident on Poe Place who often feeds the ducks in that part of town, and it was taken to the Save the Animals Rescue Foundation in the nick of time, where it is presumably quacking comfortably at the Middle Island wildlife rehab—although with a pierced esophagus, it will never sound the same. Perhaps when the perpetrator of this dastardly act is finally facing a judge’s grilling, this shooter will bow to justice and get jabbed in the neck with the wrong end of a gavel. Or be figuratively defeathered. Duck shooter… You’re fired!

MCKINNON—PARTIAL SCORE British hacker Gary McKinnon, who allegedly broke into nearly 100 NASA and U.S. military computers looking for UFO information, will not be extradited to the U.S. due to his mental health issues. No word on whether or not he found anything...

ARMSTRONG—BULL’S EYE Seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong steps down as chairman of his Livestrong cancer charity in the wake of doping allegations, so the group can keep away from the issues surrounding Armstrong and focus on more important things—like cancer.

CHRIS/RIRI—OFF TARGET Although still on probation for the 2009 incident when he beat her and bit her face, Chris Brown and Rihanna are reportedly back together and plan to go public after Rihanna’s new album drops. We’re not sure whether to roll our eyes or vomit. JETER—OFF TARGET Yankees short stop Derek Jeter ends up in a splint and crutches after breaking his left ankle in the 12th inning of Saturday’s Game 1 loss. O Captain, My Captain! BEYONCE—PARTIAL SCORE The singer signs on to play the 2013 Super Bowl. We’re not sure if that’s a good idea or not, but the thing about rock bottom is—you can only go up from there!

2. MAKE A COMMITMENT CONTRACT: At Stickk. com, you can lose weight, quit smoking, pay off your mortgage, go to the gym or anything else you aspire to do. And if you don’t, you’ll be punished. Developed by Yale University economists to help people successfully reach their goals, Stickk involves incentives. When you create your commitment contract, you put money on the line, an amount of your choice, and determine where it will go if you fail—like an opposing political party’s campaign or someone you can’t stand’s bank account. 3. GET TIX FOR MY AMITYVILLE HORROR: For the first time in 35 years, Daniel Lutz recounts his version of the infamous Amityville haunting that terrified his family in 1975. This documentary reveals the horror behind growing up as part of a world-famous haunting and while Daniel’s facts may be other’s fiction, the psychological scars he carries are indisputable. My Amityville Horror will have it’s NY premiere at Doc NYC at the IFC Center on Nov. 10. 4. ATTEND THE REPTILE EXPO: Long Island’s largest reptile expo comes to the Huntington Hilton in Melville with more than 110 vendor tables featuring a huge selection of pet reptiles, amphibians, arachnids and pet reptile supplies. Sure, all you have to do is step out your front door these days and come upon an alligator. But this is probably a lot less terrifying.

1. GET A CUSTOMIZED HAUNTED HOUSE: On Christmas, there are ginger bread houses. On Halloween, there’s…this. Bringing terror to neighborhoods everywhere, the NY-based Haunted Construction Co. (TheHauntedConstructionCo. BlogSpot.com) will build you a customized haunted house, based on your own house, but doll-sized. They also sell pre-made houses from your favorite horror films like The American Horror Story, Night of the Living Dead and Psycho.

5. DOWNLOAD SPELL TOWER: From the creator of Halcyon, Bit Pilot, and Unify, this word game is part-crossword, part word jumble, and part word puzzle with a little bit of Tetris thrown in. Find and swipe words in five challenging modes—the longer, the more points—to clear extra letters and tiles from the screen. 6. MAKE PRESIDENTIAL BEER: In the spirit of the presidential election, Northern Brewer (NorthernBrewer.com) is selling a kit based on beer recipes recently revealed on the White House blog. The kits include all the ingredients you need to make White House Honey Porter or White House Honey Ale. Bottoms up!

AMBER “BEEN THERE, DONE THAT” ROSE OCT. 21, 1983 Amber Rose, a Libra, is a model, recording artist, actress and socialite—at least that’s what her Wikipedia page says. We all know her for being romantically connected with Kanye West, Reggie Bush, Fabolous and currently, Wiz Khalifa; her bleached-blond head fuzz; leaked nude pictures; and becoming a stripper at the age of 15. Librans are known for having starry eyes that voraciously seek out their Prince or Princess Charming. Rose has had both. Before she met Kanye West, she had two long-term relationships with women. Because of their love for love, Librans tend to be blind in matters of the heart, which explains why diamond-toothed egomaniac Kanye West, of all people, was the man who got Rose to switch to the other team—and why a tattooed gremlin is the one who kept her there.

9. SEE IF YOUR LIFE IS A LIFETIME MOVIE: Have you ever had an outrageous moment, day, week or even year that has caused you to throw your hands in the air and say, “I can’t believe this is happening to me!” Depending on your experience, then congratulations, your life could be a Lifetime movie. Visit Press.AENetworks.com to see if your life is worthy of My Life is a Lifetime Movie, the network’s new unscripted series. 10. BUY HIPSTER DUST: Straight out of Williamsburg, Brooklyn comes this vegan spice mixture with a cult following used to flavor vegetables, soups, noodles and anything else you feel like. Visit HipsterDust.com for a list of recipes. A 2-ounce tin sells for $5, but if you’d like to try before you buy, you can get a 1-cent sample at Facebook.com/HipsterDust. f e at u r e s

An Unbroken Bond By Edie Lutnick On Sept. 11, 2001, 658 men and women who worked at Cantor Fitzgerald in the World Trade Center were trapped together in their offices during the terrorist attacks. None of them made it out alive. This book is about what happens in the aftermath. One of those who died that day was Long Islander Edie Lutnick’s brother Gary. In An Unbroken Bond, Lutnick tells the story of the 9/11 victims, how she lost her brother and how all the Cantor families bonded over the tragic events of that day. In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, Lutnick and her other brother, Cantor Fitzgerald CEO Howard Lutnick, teamed up to create a fund for the firm’s families and in the process faced many obstacles and roadblocks, from political jockeying to class biases. In the book Lutnick says, “We are broken. We will never be the same. But we have persevered through the unfathomable obstacles, and we are still here with our shared humanity intact.” Lutnick shares the powerful story of this unbroken bond as the Cantor families battle the system in order to honor their loved ones. —Daphne Livingston

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

Why California Tells Us The Fat Lady Will Sing For The Republican Party Stick a fork in us—we’re done. Yes, I know Romney won the first presidential debate because Barack Obama looked like he had been smoking whatever it was he used to smoke, back in the days when his name was Barry. And yes, in the vice presidential debate Joe Biden acted like my former wife Barbara’s Uncle Johnny at a wedding, after Uncle Johnny had chug-a-lugged God knows how many glasses of wine and was totally out of control. Drunken Uncle Johnny would be laughing like a maniac … pushing young girls aside when he was trying to catch the bride’s garter … grabbing the band’s microphone and insisting on singing “Come Back to Sorrento” in Italian—off-key … and basically making no sense. Uncle Johnny and Joe Biden, separated at birth. But when you listened to the “unbiased” television commentators and read the liberal-leaning newspapers the day after the Biden-Ryan debate, they all gleefully reported that Biden, with his boorish behavior, had “re-energized” the Democratic Party. Democrats felt that Biden’s acting like an ass was fine. It gave them an excuse to vote for Obama. Now it starts. From this point forward Democrats will revert to being Democrats and you’ll hear how well Obama did in the second debate. Here’s the headline: “Energized Obama Easily Wins the Debate Over What’s-His-Name.” Now we start to slide. Democrats will go into second gear, and we will have four more years of Obama. The economy? Jobs? Dead! Forget about it. Democrats don’t care, they’re voting for Obama. Israel? Forget it, it’s gone. Democrats don’t care, they’re voting for Obama. The Middle East? Forget it, it’s gone. Democrats don’t care, they’re voting for Obama. Iran? They have the bomb. Forget it. Democrats don’t care, they’re voting for Obama. Watch this country turn into California. Is that bad? Let me put it this way: Democrats in California will vote for Jerry Sandusky if he runs as a Democrat. How do I know this? Look to the state of California and you’ll see how many

intelligent Democrats ignore reality. California has 10.6 percent unemployment. Jerry Brown, a liberal’s liberal, is looking to hike taxes on Californians making more than $250,000 a year, to bring their tax rate up to 13.3 percent. This is the kind of thinking that has already caused the cities of Stockton, San Bernardino and Mammoth Lakes to go broke. Californians still will overwhelmingly vote for Obama. The number of homeless in San Francisco has turned this beautiful city into a dingy, sad place. San Francisco is the city that keeps electing that train wreck, Nancy Pelosi, who jammed ObamaCare down our throats. San Francisco still will overwhelmingly vote for Obama. Look at the disaster of California and you’ll see what will happen to the United States in the next four years. An article by Troy Senik for CFIF titled “California: First in Liberalism, Last in Everything Else,” tells how “Every year, CEO Magazine—a publication targeted at the nation’s captains of industry—ranks the 50 states based on how friendly their respective economic climates are for business. In 2012—for the eighth straight year—California finished dead last. “‘Perhaps no other state more clearly illustrates the direct impact of excessive litigation on job creation and the ability of businesses to survive and thrive.’ As a result of these and other factors, the state’s unemployment rate is 10.7 percent, third highest in the nation.” California does lead in something. The state has the highest number of public employees in the country. California and the United States, separated at birth. By 2016, the United States will be Greece or Spain. So Obama and his fellow Democrats will once again need to fire up Democrats to mindlessly vote again. If the country is in as bad a place as I believe it will be, Democrats will search for someone to blame. Who’s to blame? May I suggest they look at that old cartoon strip “Pogo,” where one of my favorites was the character in the swamp who said, “We have met the enemy and they is us.”

By The Long Island Press News Staff

They didn’t strip down to leotards and tights, but as President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney circled each other at the town hall debate Oct. 16, they looked like they were about to turn Hofstra’s basketball arena into a professional wrestling match—with CNN moderator Candy Crowley as the hapless referee futilely trying to muscle her way in between them before they tore each other apart. Crowley held her own—though some conservative commentators may have thought otherwise—and the two presidential contenders managed to avoid an outright smack down, in turn treating the millions of Americans tuning in to one of the most intense political confrontations since 1980 when President Jimmy Carter and Gov. Ronald Reagan went toe to toe before a national audience. When the 90-plus minutes expired, Obama and Romney were both on their feet, though the former Massachusetts governor seemed to be walking a bit stiffly and the current occupant of the White House was smiling more broadly. Indeed, he was still shaking hands, signing autographs and posing for photographs long after his Republican challenger had left the ring. Democrats on hand in the media center next to 12

the debate venue were ecstatic—they had reason to be, because instant polls declared Obama the victor soon thereafter— the Republicans who made the rounds in the spin zone were rather testy. “I think the moderator did a lousy job,” said John Sununu, the former New Hampshire governor and Romney advisor, who wasn’t

pleased that Crowley had called out his candidate for inaccurately claiming that the president waited two weeks before calling the death of the American ambassador in Libya an “act of terror.” Sununu told the Press that he thought “Jim Lehrer was fine” in the first debate in Denver—certainly a view not held by Democrats, who

POLITICS AND PROTEST

From a man with a long white beard wearing half a dozen neckties and a boot on his head to a woman dressed in a polar bear costume railing about global warming, the 2012 Presidential Debate at Hofstra University injected much more into the national dialogue than just the issues tackled by President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney inside the school’s exhibition complex. Throughout the campus, students participated in myriad events, activities and panels designed not only to continue those discussions, but introduce several topics, ranging from critical policy issues and civil liberties to human rights, student debt and health care. An “Issue Alley” presented a forum for students to learn and question together, thus informing impressionable minds while expanding their knowledge and imagination. Outside along Hempstead Turnpike, hundreds of people took to the streets, carrying signs, shouting slogans, chanting messages and marching in support of a litany of charged topics from hydrofracking and abortion to Israel, Wall Street and the perils of war. Here are but a few snapshots from this historic Long Island showdown and the public’s response:

wished he’d been more aggressive in correcting misstatements—particularly those made by Romney. “Candy was right,” said Robert Gibbs, senior advisor to the Obama campaign, adding that Romney had been “extraordinarily wrong” and “looked like an amateur” in handling foreign affairs.

BARRED

After crossing Hempstead Turnpike with about a half-dozen supporters and reporters in tow recording every step, Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein and vice presidential running mate Cheri Honkala stood at the western corner of the entrance to Hofstra University and unfurled an American flag. “Cheri and I are here on behalf of the American people,” said Stein. “We are here at the barred gates of American debates to say that we need to open up this debate and make it a full, fair and inclusive debate.” “It shouldn’t just be whether or not you have billions of dollars that determine whether or not the American people can hear about your platform,” said Honkala. “The Commission on Presidential Debates makes a mockery of democracy by conducting this fake and contrived debate,” continued Stein, describing the process as a “hijacking of our political system.” “Do you have credentials?” asked Karen O’Callaghan, director of Hofstra’s public safety team, as the women approached the school’s main entrance and attempted to walk past security. “This is a private university.” Wrapping the flag around themselves and locking arms, the two stood about halfway up the driveway, nudging themselves up against a wall of about a half-dozen Nassau County and state police. “We’re here to stand ground for the American people who have been systematically locked out of these debates for decades by the Commission on Presidential Debates,” said Stein. “Let us into the debates,” she told them before sitting down on the ground with Honkala. That prompted a Nassau County police officer to inform them they were impeding traffic and subject to arrest. They didn’t budge until police led them away, arrested for disorderly conduct, according to police. Including Stein and Honkala, there were only three arrests related to the debate, they said.

mastermind: hofstra university president stuart rabinowitz joins international delegates for a discussion about how the historic town hallstyle debate could be used as a model for similar forums abroad.

In the Hofstra debate—the school’s second, its first being in 2008 between then-Sen. Obama and Republican Sen. John McCain—the exchange over whether Obama had misspoke about the deaths of the four Americans at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11 was clearly the most heated. For more than a month Romney and his backers had tried to use the tragic killings as a wedge issue because the president has consistently outpolled the governor in regards to international affairs—such as his making good on his vow to hunt down Osama bin Laden—and they seem to believe that criticizing any aspect of Obama’s Mideast policy would do the trick. The president took umbrage. “The suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the Secretary of State, our UN Ambassador, anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we’ve lost four of our own, governor, is offensive,” said Obama.

Whether Obama’s retort will stop the momentum Romney had reportedly gained from his superior performance in their first match-up remains to be seen. Romney won that one hands down because, as both critics and supporters said, the president “never showed up.” This time around he came out swinging. At Hofstra, Crowley told Romney that Obama had “in fact” called it “an act of terror” when he spoke in the Rose Garden, prompting the president to proclaim, “Can you say that a little louder, Candy?” That remark drew some applause from the audience inside the hall, who had been warned to keep their reactions to themselves until the debate was over. At another point, Romney stood a few feet apart from the president and clenched his mic in his hand like a billy club as Obama tore into his “five point plan” as “such a sketchy deal…that voters shouldn’t buy into his sales

RENT IS TOO DAMN HIGH!

Sporting his gray handlebar beard-stache and signature gloves, failed NY gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan, founder of the Rent Is Too Damn High Party, stood on the corner of California Avenue and Hempstead Turnpike amid a sea of demonstrators ranging from Occupy Wall Street supporters and anarchists, to socialists, Democrats and Republicans. Someone yells to him over the crowd: “The rent is too damn high!” McMillan responds: “I know, my brother, that’s why I’m going to McDonald’s in a few minutes.” “[Obama and Romney] haven’t said anything about the people so I came to represent the folk,” he told the Press, adding that despite his opposition to both major parties, he’s voting for Obama.

REDNECKS FOR OBAMA

CHANCE OF A LIFETIME

Four years ago Dr. Sara Viessman stood on Hempstead Turnpike with her dad. This year she stood alone, holding his “Rednecks for Obama” banner, signed by both President Obama and Bill Clinton, in his memory. Originally from Missouri, she’d traveled from Pennsylvania, and her voice sounded a bit like Sarah Palin. “There are a lot of haters,” she told the Press. “My dad was half redneck, so I guess that makes me one-quarter redneck first removed!” As a pediatrician, she supports Obamacare, noting that nothing is perfect. Outside the debate, Viessman was supporting “equal pay for women” and helping make “rural people not afraid to vote for a black man.”

Katie Fenton, an undecided voter who was one of the 10 audience members whose questions were chosen by CNN’s debate moderator Candy Crowley, tells the Press her experience was “absolutely surreal.” “We were a legitimate, integral part of the democratic process and as a young woman that felt very empowering and extraordinary,” she says, adding that she’s undecided no longer after witnessing the candidates in action. “I truly believe it was a close race, though I would have to concede that President Obama took it.”

pitch” that he could simultaneously cut taxes and raise defense spending without adding to the deficit. Crowley asked Romney if the numbers in his economic proposal added up. “Of course it adds up!” he said indignantly, mentioning that he’s run the Olympics and the state of Massachusetts while Obama has doubled the nation’s debt during his term in office. “I know what it takes to balance the budget.” In the spin room afterwards, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) discounted Romney’s assertion that he’d left the Bay State in such great shape. “We know him better than anybody in America,” says Kerry, who lost his own bid for president in 2004. “He can’t even contest Massachusetts in this campaign. It’s unheard of that a former governor running for president can’t even carry his own state. And why? Because he lost 45,000 manufacturing jobs—twice the national average— because he left the incoming governor with a billion-dollar deficit, because the debt of our citizens became the highest per capita debt in the nation, because he outsourced jobs to India, because he raised spending in the state and the deficit went up. This is a man who talks about one thing one day, another, another. I don’t believe the American people can trust him and I think that’s what this debate showed.”

During the debate, responding to a question about equal pay, Romney touted his hiring record in Massachusetts, saying he had “whole binders full of women” to choose from. Kerry told the Press he agreed that Romney had “hired some women in the cabinet,” but said the Republican’s relations with the state legislature “were very bad… Most of the legislators there will tell you he was aloof and distant. He carved out his own elevator in the [State House] and had state police guard it so only he could use it!” Asked why Romney couldn’t win there, Sununu told the Press “that’s about the most stupid question I have ever heard, because Massachusetts only has 13 percent registered Republicans and in a presidential race the Democrats are going to go out and vote [their] party.” Before the debate some national polls showed that Romney had edged over the president in recent days, and narrowed Obama’s margin significantly in the swing states. “All these bounces are political Viagra!” exclaimed Robert Zimmerman, a prominent Long Island businessman who’s a member of the Democratic National Committee. “By that I mean, the bounces are shortlived, artificial and if they last more than four days, get a new pollster!

PRO-LIFE VS. PRO CHOICE A middle-aged man wearing jeans and Converse sneakers stood at the corner of California Avenue and Hempstead Turnpike with two signs and yelled about abortion for hours on end. His first sign showed a bloody, dead fetus, while the second read “Jesus loves all babies” on one side and “Support Romney” on the other. Terri Scofield of Occupy Mastic-Shirley, carrying a “Prosecute the banksters” sign, walked straight up to him and demanded: “Show me your uterus!” “Just because you have a uterus, doesn’t mean you can kill a baby girl with a uterus,” he blasted. “Either you get a uterus or you go to hell!” she screamed in his face. “Repent your foul soul,” he responded. Another protester asked him: “What about when drones kill babies?” The man paused, stammered and finally stated: “But that’s an accident. Abortion is murder!” Later, a parade of about 150 Planned Parenthood supporters, carrying signs reading “Don’t Take Away My Breast Exams,” among others, marched past in pink shirts chanting, “Our bodies, our lives.” “What about the baby’s body?” the man yelled frantically, trying to dodge in between them. “It’s time to take women’s reproductive health out of the political arena and into the healthcare arena where it belongs,” Planned Parenthood Advocates of New York President M. Tracey Brooks said. “It is not a political football.” Planned Parenthood Nassau County Action Fund President and CEO JoAnn D. Smith stressed a woman’s access to contraception also had a significant impact on women’s economic situation, saying: “When women receive a full range of healthcare, they flourish, their family flourishes and their community flourishes.” The man continued his rants long after the women had gone, sometimes sparking shouting matches between him and a group of anti-drone strike protesters who were rallying on the same corner.

LOTTERY WINNER Tuesday afternoon, dressedup students waited excitedly outside Hofstra U.S.A, the campus eatery, to pick up their tickets for the debate. Lauren Mansley, a junior public relations major from Wantagh, found out she was one of the lucky few when she was at the mall Saturday night. “I received the email and started jumping up and down,” she said. Behind her, another student was annoyed to be waiting for the coveted tickets— one of 300 given through a student lottery—and said she’d only give the Press her opinions on the debate if we could help her cut in line.

OCCUPY LONG ISLAND

“It’s not that people are irresponsible, lazy or stupid,” said Occupy Shirley Mastic’s Scofield as she plopped onto the sidewalk and lit a cigarette—representing just one of several Occupy contingencies that descended upon the debate, among them Ronkonkoma’s Occupy Storefront, Occupy the East End and two buses from Occupy Wall Street in New York City. “It’s just that they’re too stressed and busy to pay attention.” Scofield dismissed the oft-repeated notion from mainstream media that the movement’s power had waned since their eviction from Zuccotti Park: “Occupy is very much alive,” she said. “We’re doing the dirty work of organizing our communities at a grassroots level. It’s a long, slow process.”

YIPPIE PIE MAN

Left-wing activist Aron Kay, known as the Pie Man for his pie-in-the-face attacks on everyone from former CIA director William Colby to former NY Mayor Abe Beame, was in a wheelchair on the corner of California and Hempstead Turnpike and was yelling, “Obama! Romney! Same old bologna! Plenty of bologna inside at Hofstra. White Wonder bread with bologna inside!” through a megaphone held by another man wearing a tricorner hat. A woman with a heavy Caribbean accent and a bright red fro-hawk paced back and forth with a white “Obama” flag shouting, “Obama set me free!” Nearby a dozen anti-Zionist rabbis in the background cried, “Down, State of Israel!”

VERMIN SUPREME A lone rubber boot rose above the glom of protestors, sitting plumly on the head of 2012 Democratic presidential candidate— Jimmy McMillan’s running mate—Vermin Supreme. With a long white beard, at least six un-matching ties around his neck and sporting what can only be called a pimp coat, he appeared as a wizard of sorts. The self-proclaimed performance artist, anarchist and activist promised the American people that if elected president, he would pass a law requiring teeth brushing, put in place a zombie-based energy plan and give a free pony to all Americans. “Why a boot?” asked the Press. “The boot stands for all the American people—and Italy.”

an incredibly close race, and that’s why the Hofstra debate is so critical because it provides a chance for these candidates to define who they are and what issues they stand for in front of a very scrutinizing audience of non-committed voters. “Suburbanites are the swing voting bloc in America,” Zimmerman added, “and New York suburbanites are suburbanites with an attitude!” Here on Long Island, the idea that the Gallup polling organization could find 80 Nassau residents who hadn’t made up their mind about the election struck some as incredulous. “I have a lot of friends who wonder how on Earth anybody at this point could be undecided but Gallup found them,” Gibbs told the Press. “I think they had good questions, and quite frankly I think they represent millions of people that have the same questions.” “Suburbs are going to decide this election like they did the last six,” said Lawrence Levy, dean of the National Center for Suburban Studies at Hofstra. “We know how the cities are going to go, we know how the rural red areas are going to go. It’s the suburbs that go back and forth between parties that are going to decide this thing. But not every suburb.

America’s first suburb, but it’s ironic that nobody within a hundred miles of here is going to cast a vote that’s going to affect the outcome of the presidential campaign.” How the debate will affect Long Island is hard to measure. New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli, a Long Island Democrat, said its price tag—Hofstra reportedly spent $4.5 million to host the historic event according to The New York Times but was helped substantially by support from alumnus and Board of Trustees member David S.

hard to quantify,” DiNapoli said, “but I think are real and tangible and well worth the investment…” Democrats even coined a new phrase that may forever ingrain the university in the annals of presidential debate history: “the Hofstra Barack Obama!” “Long Island is swing-vote America,” enthused Sen. Charles Schumer, New York’s senior Democratic senator. “The questions were great! “Whatever ground the president lost in the first debate, he more than made up for it here,” he added. “This is the Barack Obama that the American people wanted to see.” “Romney did okay,” admits Jon Cooper, the former Democratic Suffolk legislator and a long-time Obama supporter, even in the 2008 primary when most New York Democrats were behind then-Sen. Hillary Clinton. “He probably did almost as good as he did the first time. The difference is that Obama was back. He was in the room this time! He knocked it out of the park!” And he helped put the university permanently on the map. The Press’ 2012 Presidential Debate News Team consisted of Timothy Bolger, Lindsay Christ, Jaclyn Gallucci, Rashed Mian, Spencer Rumsey and Christopher Twarowski.

BOOK REVIEW

You Gotta Have Balls

How did a kid from Brooklyn with so little end up with so much? By Brandon Steiner The founder and chairman of Steiner Sports Marketing took his mother’s advice and created a memorabilia empire that led to the purchase of his favorite childhood location, old Yankee Stadium. The man who purchased sports’ greatest cathedral was always motivated by his mother’s favorite saying: “You Gotta have Balls.” Brandon Steiner has plenty of them. He eventually got them autographed and his memorabilia empire would generate millions of dollars while delivering fond memories to people around the world. Steiner’s formula was created by his penchant to take chances in life. They would lead toward amazing connections to the entertainment industry. His strong will and desire would help him manifest extraordinary opportunities. The story of his life and how he lived it would eventually bring unprecedented success and his one-of-a-kind business to fruition. This inspirational book will motivate any reader to break through roadblocks in their own life that prevents a path to success. It is like having a personal mentor on your bookshelf in the form of a well-connected self-made multi-millionaire. Most people who meet Steiner ask: “How did you get your start?” The captivating stories inside his book detail his life’s course like a roadmap. Steiner Sports Marketing was built on quality management skills learned by the author through the years. These lessons are shared with readers in a simplified format. Steiner is a student of the game; He learned it from the people in his life. As an entrepreneur, he found ways to over deliver simply by asking: “What else can I do for you?” Out of 33 “Steinerisms” featured at the end of his story, the most compelling is the last one: “If you use your head, you don’t have to use your feet.” Ironically, Steiner used both his head and feet to out-hustle others. He worked hard and dreamed big. As a reader, I could not help but dream along with him. The book touches on the importance of positive connections and the expansion of influential people in our lives that can lead us on our own desired path to success. Steiner’s news

connections are fun to read about and are mind-boggling, to say the least. Readers will find it interesting to learn what professional ball player gave Steiner his first autograph and what his personal favorite piece of memorabilia is. Both answers are connected to two great captains in the New York sports market. But it was a connection to a third captain and his legendary sports franchise—one of the most famous in the world—that delivered some of his biggest breaks. As his empire grew, so did his reputation. Steiner’s approach led to the biggest deal of his life, the chance

to purchase and eventually sell off every piece of the old Yankee Stadium. Steiner Sports Marketing earned millions of dollars selling stadium dirt and much more. Fans and readers will enjoy finding out what pieces of the old Stadium were purchased by some of the New York Yankee ballplayers. They will also be treated to a great story about how Steiner himself caught an eager baseball fan stealing “his” third base just minutes after the last out of the Stadium’s final game. This boy from Brooklyn, who started with little in life, became the man who would eventually purchase the actual stadium that he grew up in. This is the house where he watched some of the game’s greatest legends play Yankee baseball. All it took was confidence, a plan, and some autographed balls. You Gotta have Balls is an inspiring read and an inside look into the world of sports marketing. You will learn from this story that “a big part of who you are is who raised you and where you grew up.” Whether you are a sports fan, entrepreneur or even a dreamer, Steiner’s life story will motivate you to believe that you can achieve anything you can imagine. —Felice Cantatore P r e s s P l ay

This Week: Best School Spirit Feature – Third Place Bellport Welcomes New School Mascot BY Adele Ratje-Mundell The Clipper, Bellport High School

Bellport High School’s mascot is the Clipper, named after the ship Christopher Columbus once guided towards Bellport Village. This mascot is quite unconventional for a high school; Most are “The Eagles,” “The Tigers,” “The Bulldogs,” or some other fierce, pugnacious animal depicted with protuberant muscles. Often this is done as a sign of intimidation and

to imply that high school athletes are invincible. Because of this, the high school has decided to change the mascot from the inanimate Clipper ship, to a living creature that it believes to be a more suitable representation of high school athletes: narwhals. The school will embrace its new mascot as the “Bellport High School Narwhals” shortly, after the state Division of Alleged Mythical Creatures approves the selection. For those of you who are unsure of what a narwhal is, it is a whale with a horn protruding from its left jaw; essentially, a

narwhal is a unicorn of the sea. Unicorns have magical powers, defeating their enemies with beams of love and happiness, shooting glitter and sparkles into the air upon victory. Because narwhals are so similar to unicorns, they follow suit. The high school chose the narwhal as the new mascot because it believes the school’s athletes should use it as a role model, an example of how to treat competition. A statement regarding the new mascot can be found on the school’s website: High school athletes must learn to treat other teams with complete and utter respect. We feel that the narwhal is the epitome of these qualities, and will encourage athletes to defeat their

adversaries with their own powers of love and happiness. Bellport High School feels these changes are imperative to at once boost the students’ understanding of marine biology and to improve their powers of love. There’s sure to be glitter sparkling in the air around Bellport!” Having the narwhal branded upon the Bellport name should energize its teams, creating star athletes who might’ve normally turned the other way towards sports. The “Bellport High School Narwhals” will revolutionize Bellport’s athletic program and invigorate its athletes once again. “It’s time for this ship to sail,” Varsity Math Coach Andrew Dunbar said enthusiastically.

EdenPURE reopens Ohio factory creates 250 new jobs ®

New models shipped direct from warehouse at 49% savings

Never be cold again

Richard Karn, North Canton, Ohio

I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening of the new EdenPURE® factory in North Canton, Ohio. The new plant brought hundreds of new jobs back to Ohio and reversed the common practice of sending Midwest manufacturing jobs to China. Now, EdenPURE® continues to ramp up production for the coming Winter with exciting new models and hundreds of new employees as this Made in America success story continues to grow. American Labor, American Quality With over 3 million portable heaters sold EdenPURE ® is the best selling portable infrared heating system in North America. However, like any classic, EdenPURE ® has dozens of would-be competitors who create Asian copies at low prices using cheap, foreign labor. Don’t be fooled by these imitations. Look for the EdenPURE® logo and the Made in North Canton, Ohio stamp. Save like millions of others on your heating bills and say “NO” to cheap foreign imitators. Save up to 49% on 2013 EdenPURE®s Now readers can save up to 49% ($229 the largest savings ever on new EdenPURE ® s). EdenPURE® is not just the best-selling portable heating system in North America. As an EdenPURE® owner I rank EdenPURE® #1 for quality, safety and efficiency. And now is the perfect time to save like never before on our expanded 2013 EdenPURE ® line made in our brand new North Canton, Ohio facility. With two models EdenPURE® can meet all of your heating requirements 365 days a year. Stay Comfortable 365 Days a Year “Never be cold again” is the EdenPURE® promise. EdenPURE® provides you insurance against the cold all year long. Stay comfortable on those unseasonably chilly evenings no matter the season. I live in California but believe me it gets cold at night. Keep your expensive furnace turned down until it’s absolutely necessary. And if we are fortunate enough to experience a mild winter as many of us did in the Midwest last year, you keep your furnace off all season

How it works:

CUTAWAY VIEW

Heats floor to the same temperature as ceiling. 1. Electricity ignites powerful SYLVANIA infrared lamp.

2. The quartz infrared lamp gently warms the patented copper heating chambers.

SYLVANIA is a registered trademark of OSRAM SYLVANIA Inc. used under license.

Richard Karn is a paid spokesperson for EdenPURE®.

PERSONAL

MODEL 750

As Al Borland on Home Improvement I was the man with all the answers. However, as Richard Karn I still look for money saving and efficient heating in my home. I have an EdenPURE® Infrared Portable Heater in my California home and like millions of others found it to be a super-safe, reliable source of portable heat all year long. and save even bigger. New, More Efficient Models The engineers at EdenPURE® listened to their millions of customers and somehow managed to improve the #1 portable heater in North America. Through old fashioned American ingenuity the new EdenPURE® line is more efficient to save you even more money. The EdenPURE ® Personal Heater now heats a larger area, an increase from 350 square feet to 500 square feet. That’s a 30% increase in efficiency! And EdenPURE ® is proud to introduce the 2013 Model 750. The new Model 750 is perfect for larger areas and heats up to 750 square feet. But the best thing about the Model 750 is the price. We priced the Model 750 at only $50 above the Personal Heater. This means you receive a 33% increase in performance for only $50. That’s American engineering at its best! The EdenPURE® can cut your heating bills and pay for itself in a matter of weeks, and then start

putting a great deal of extra money in your pocket after that. Super Safe Infrared Heat Now remember, a major cause of residential fires in the United States is carelessness and faulty portable heaters. The choice of fire and safety professional, Captain Mike Hornby, the EdenPURE® has no exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. And a redundant home protection system that simply shuts the EdenPURE® down if it senses danger. That’s why grandparents and parents love the EdenPURE®. The outside of the EdenPURE® only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. And your pet may be just like my dog who has reserved a favorite spot near the EdenPURE ®. You see the EdenPURE® uses infrared heat. And just as pets enjoy basking in a beam of sunlight they try to stay close to EdenPURE ® ’s “bone-warming” infrared heat. The Health Secret is in the Copper

EdenFLOW™ technology uses copper heating chambers to take the energy provided by our special SYLVANIA infrared bulbs and distribute our famous soft heat evenly throughout the room. Now our copper isn’t ordinary. It’s 99.9% pure antimicrobial copper from an over 150 year old American owned company in Pennsylvania. So your EdenPURE ® heater is continuously pushing soft, healthy, infrared heat throughout your room. How to Order During our 2013 introduction you are eligible for a $202 DISCOUNT PLUS FREE SHIPPING AND HANDLING FOR A TOTAL SAVINGS OF $229 ON THE EDENPURE® MODEL 750 AND A $175 DISCOUNT PLUS FREE SHIPPING AND HANDLING FOR A TOTAL SAVINGS OF $192 ON THE EDENPURE ® PERSONAL HEATER. This special offer expires in 10 days. If you order after that we reserve the right to accept or reject order requests at the discounted price. See my attached savings Coupon to take advantage of this opportunity. The made in North Canton, Ohio EdenPURE ® carries a 60day, unconditional no-risk guarantee. If you are not totally satisfied, return it at our expense and your purchase price will be refunded. No questions asked. There is also a 3 year warranty on all parts and labor.

All of the testimonials are by actual EdenPURE® customers who volunteered their stories, and were given another EdenPURE® heater as thanks for their participation. Average homeowners save 10% to 25%.

3. The soft heat “rides” the humidity in the room and provides even, moist, soft heat ceiling to floor and wall to wall without reducing oxygen and humidity.
