Sound Smart at a Party More than 50 people fell ill due to bathroom fumes at a German airport, and the smell had nothing to do with what you’re probably thinking. A

cleaning crew got a little too ammonia happy in a restroom at Berlin’s Tegel airport, causing 53 people to seek treatment for nausea and sore eyes. The ammonia levels were so high that even the firefighters who went to investigate the bathroom ended up getting sick. And we thought the fumes from JFK’s bathrooms were bad…

samurai sword. Yes, we said (well, really wrote) a samurai sword. According to local news stations, the man brandished his weapon in an attempt to stop a fight. The approach worked, and witnesses say that everyone got quiet and returned to their seats. Great, another excuse for someone to bring a bayonet on the LIRR…

It’s bad when a movie theater accidently shows the wrong film to an audience. It’s even worse when

it’s supposed to be a children’s feature and ends up being a horror movie. Cineworld Cinema in Nottingham, England mistakenly put on R-rated horror flick Paranormal Activity 4 for a theater full of children expecting to watch the G-rated animated film Madagascar 3. Parents said that after

“It was a terrible time. It was awful. I was really heartbroken by how it all played out. And angry. He was my friend. We were all concerned about him. We thought he was going to die.”

A new study suggests that the best way older people can keep their minds sharp is by physically working out. Researchers questioned approxi-

mately 700 70-year-old United Kingdom residents about their leisure and physical activities. Three years later they took brain scans, and the participants who reported more activity tended to have larger brain volumes of gray and normal white matter and less atrophy than those who did not partake in regular exercise. Interestingly enough, mental leisure activities did not seem to help the brain shrinkage that typically occurs with old age…

A man in Arizona stopped a fight on a light rail train by taking out a

about two minutes of the frightening first scene they realized there had been a mistake and whisked their kids out. Employees blame the swap on a technical error…Hey, at least this time it wasn’t porn! A New Mexico man cleverly stopped a burglar attempting to steal his car by sitting on him until police arrived. Rene Huerta went to

check on his Chevy Tahoe after the alarm went off and allegedly caught Michael Chavez and another man trying to break into it. Police video showed Huerta chase Chavez down and sit on him. The police video also shows Chavez yelling, “Thank you,” when cops came to arrest Chavez as Huerta got off him… People always talk about attending their own funerals, but few actually get to do it. A 41-year-

old man in Brazil walked in his mother’s home and interrupted his funeral after his brother had mistakenly identified a body as his. The body was actually another car washer who looked similar to him, but police mixed it up and called his brother. The whole situation sorted itself out when a friend saw Gilberto walking down the street and informed him that he was hours away from his own burial…

Letters to the Press Few Good Men Dear Editor: Why is it that pundits, for or against former Gov. Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential candidate, finish their critiques with condescending statements like “he is a good, kind, caring man?” Even President Barack Obama has made similar statements. Good men do not lie to the American people, as Romney has done in his television advertisements, debates and campaign speeches. Good men do not increase their wealth by causing misery with calculated leveraged buy-outs of domestic business and ship the jobs to China. Good men are their brother’s keepers, not their brother’s 47-percent throw-aways. Once again this week, on cable news and national networks talk shows, I had to listen to “talking heads” reiterate that Romney is a good man. If I may quote Romney’s strongest supporter, his wife Ann, “Stop it.” Tony Mignone Massapequa Park

businesses should be lower but they differ on how to tweak the income tax code to achieve this. Forget the income tax code; Replace it with the FairTax! There’s been a FairTax proposal before Congress for more than a decade; it’s not been voted on yet. Adoption of The FairTax would usher in a period of prosperity unlike that seen by any living American. On page 106 of “The FairTax Book” we find: “Economists estimate that in the first year after the FairTax becomes law, the economy will grow by 10.5 percent, exports will grow by 26 percent and capital spending will increase by more than 70 percent.” Why hasn’t it already been adopted? Congress and the lobbyists! They thrive on the present tax code, plus it gives Congress great power over us citizens. If you have the opportunity, vote for a supporter of the FairTax. Glen E. Terrell Arlington, TX

The Tax Man Writeth Dear Editor: During the second presidential debate, Mitt Romney pointed out that Canada’s tax on businesses is only 15 percent while that of the US is 35 percent. Then he raised the question: “If you wanted to start a new business, would you rather start it in the US or Canada?” Both Romney and President Obama agreed that the income tax on

through 24th, 2012 edition of the Long Island Press, we ran an incorrect advertisement for Belmont Park on behalf of the New York Racing Association on our back cover. This was the result of an internal production error involving similar file names. The correct advertisement was to promote the Belmont Park Farmers Market this coming weekend, October 27th and 28th. We apologize to the readers for any confusion this may have caused and to NYRA for the error.

CORRECTION: In the October 18th

If only Twitter had the power to censor Lindsay... POLLS—PARTIAL SCORE Based on sales of their presidential coffee cups, 7-11 predicts Gov.

IPAD MINI—BULL’S EYE Apple execs unveil a smaller iPad tablet plus new models of Mac computers and a larger iPad. The iPad mini, which will start at $329, has a 7.9-inch screen, two cameras, a dual-core A5 processor and weighs half as much as the original. Hey, Santa… QUAKE CONVICTION—OFF TARGET An Italian court convicts seven experts of manslaughter and sentences them to six years in prison for not adequately warning residents of the risk before a 6.3magnitude earthquake hit central Italy in 2009, killing 308 people. And suddenly it’s 1633 and Galileo can’t say the Earth revolves around the sun. Hopefully it won’t take centuries to reverse this one.

The Pink Slip New York Yankees So much for the big bad Yankees. The Bronx Bombers bombed out of the playoffs in pathetic fashion, sinking to a new low in offensive futility. Oh, those Damn Yankees were offensive all right, but for the wrong reason. Seven players in pinstripes had a batting average under .170, including horny third baseman, Alex Rodriguez, who was allegedly giving out specially autographed balls to babes that he wanted to hit on after the game. But it wasn’t all A-Rod’s fault. Robinson Cano had only three hits in 40 at-bats, and Curtis Granderson struck out 16 times. Once again Nick Swisher didn’t show up at the plate but did blast fans for booing the team. The club’s .188 combined batting average was the worst in Major League postseason history. And if it wasn’t for Raul Ibanez’s improbable home runs against the Orioles and his game-tying blast in Game 1 of the ALCS, they would’ve been a total bust. Ironically, the Yanks’ much-maligned starting rotation outperformed the rest of manager Joe Girardi’s jokers. It’s time to do away with the $200 million payroll and bring in some guys with heart. If George Steinbrenner were alive, he would have banished the culprits responsible for this embarrassment. But since he’s not, we’ll do it for him. As The Boss would say...you’re fired!

The Quote

“Marriage equality is the next big step in America’s long march of freedom.” —New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in a statement Monday, after announcing he will spend $500,000 of his own money on gay marriage campaigns in Maine, Minnesota and Washington state.

READ THE LATEST ISSUE OF SUPERMAN: In issue No. 13 in stores this week, Superman’s alter ego, newsman Clark Kent, has it out with the owner of the Daily Planet’s parent company, Galaxy Broadcasting and, in a totally punk rock move, quits the newspaper over being forced to write to entertain the public instead of covering real news. The move is an attempt by writer Scott Lobdell to address the current issues the newspaper industry faces like SEO vs. journalism, new media vs. print, etc. 4. GO TO BELMONT FARMER’S MARKET: We’re coming close to the end of the fall festival season, so if you haven’t made your way to a harvest celebration yet, or even if you have, Belmont Racetrack is the place to be this weekend (Saturday, Oct. 27 and Sunday, Oct. 28).

Martinez shares his story from his time in the Army to his recovery and the indomitable spirit that has made him an inspiration to countless fans.

The Book The Dalai L ama’s Cat By David Michie This adorably addictive book is about the life of the Dalai Lama’s cat, through her eyes. The story takes readers from the humble beginning of HHC (His Holiness’ Cat) on the streets of New Delhi, to her rescue and first 16 months with the Buddhist monk. The story is told in a manner where readers are so wrapped up in the everyday shenanigans of the feisty HHC that they don’t realize they’re learning the fundamentals of Tibetan Buddhism. The HHC gives her take on the struggle for mindfulness and other Buddhist concepts that most people would not attribute to a feline. David Michie is a true cat person (it’s easy to recognize a kindred spirit) and infuses good-natured humor about the inner workings of a cat’s mind throughout this tale. Overall, the book is filled with likable, interesting characters and stories, and the unusual perspective it’s narrated with makes it all the more charming. HHC may not be near Enlightenment, but she’s definitely a kitty I would want on my lap. —Lindsay Christ

Islanders Skating to Brooklyn in 2015

End of an Era Sparks New Questions About Fate of Nassau Hub

By Christopher Twarowski, Spencer Rumsey, Rashed Mian and Timothy Bolger

In their 40th year as Long Island’s hometown NHL team, the Stanley Cup dynasty-winning New York Islanders announced Wednesday the franchise will be moving to Brooklyn’s recently opened Barclays Center in 2015, where they signed a 25-year lease. Isles  owner Charles Wang made the  rumored announcement at the Barclays Center, where he was joined by Barclays Majority Owner and Developer Bruce Ratner, National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, Isles General Manager Garth Snow and New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg. “Hello, Brooklyn!” he shouted to a sea of reporters as he took the podium—a greeting repeated by Ratner and Markowitz before their remarks. “We tried very hard to keep the Islanders in their original home in Nassau County,” said Wang, also the former founding CEO of Islandiabased computer software giant CA, Inc. “Unfortunately we were unable to achieve that dream.” Wang added that he informed Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano Wednesday morning about his decision and reiterated his pledge to make the Nassau Hub, where the Isles’ home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum is located, a “destination.” “He was surprised, obviously, very disappointed,” said Wang of the county exec. “This has been a very long journey for the Islanders family.” The Islanders, who possess generations of fans on LI, became a franchise in 1972. The fledgling expansion team started its NHL career with the worst

record in hockey history but within less than a decade began their ascent to legendary “Dynasty” status within the league—winning the Stanley Cup four years in a row from 1980 to 1984, a feat only eight other teams have been able to accomplish since the NHL’s founding in 1917. Throughout the succeeding decades the Isles had flashes of greatness mixed with fan frustration regarding management and the crumbling state of the aging Coliseum. The team finished last season 27th in the league and 14th in

the east, last in the division. The Isles will retain their name when they move to Brooklyn, since the borough is still geographically on Long Island. Mangano, a Republican, spearheaded an Aug. 1, 2011 public referendum on a proposed $400 million taxpayer-funded reconstruction of the arena and its surrounding area that was rejected by county residents, yet still cost them $2.5 million to hold. The bid was widely viewed as a life preserver to keep the Islanders on Long Island, since Wang had threatened to relocate the team if the Coliseum was not replaced by the time its lease was up in 2015. Its nix was the latest for Wang, who with RXR Corp. developer Scott Rechler, had been struggling for years with getting the necessary local approvals for their Lighthouse project at the Hub. As reported in a July 28 Press cover

must immediately start working on new ideas for the Hub so that the Coliseum does not sit as a crumbling eyesore for generations.” “It’s tremendously disappointing,” Nassau Democratic Party Chairman Jay Jacobs tells the Press. “It’s another financial blow to Nassau County, and it’s a reflection on county leadership. “This is the center point of entertainment activity in the county and it’s just been given a death sentence,” he adds. Even still, says Des Ryan, executive director of Association for a Better Long Island and an outspoken opponent of last year’s referendum, Mangano at least tried. “Ed Mangano did something Charles Wang never did,” he tells the Press. “He moved past the referendum vote and heard the taxpayers about what they wanted and what they didn’t want. But the owner of the Islanders continued to sulk for the past 18 months. And this move to Brooklyn is a reflection of the fact that he never got over the fact that the taxpayers didn’t want to pick up the bill for his real estate deal. “That’s plain and simple, and that’s the point we had said all along: This had nothing to do with a hockey team; this was a real estate deal,” continues Ryan. “And that was the message that got lost in the whole situation. The fact that [Wang] is moving to Brooklyn is an opportunity for Nassau County to redevelop that property to make it a focal point of the county and a showcase of comprehensive economic development and good planning that will only benefit the region moving forward. “This will be the final wake-up call for the Town of Hempstead, because as they say in the vernacular: ‘Now

the proposal’s demise.” Mangano issued a statement Wednesday that did not mention the  hockey franchise by name, but stated he would soon be announcing the selection of an economic development team “who will serve as a catalyst in redeveloping the Hub into a vibrant destination and job creation center.” Republican Hempstead Town Supervisor Murray also issued a statement following the Isles’ announcement, which included: “I am disappointed to learn of the Islanders’ plan to relocate to Brooklyn. They’ve been a valued part of this region’s identity, and we wish the team great success in the future. We hope Long Islanders will continue to cheer for the team… Though we regret the Islanders’ decision to relocate, we remain committed to development at the Nassau Veterans Coliseum site that makes sense for our region and our residents.” Democrats were quick to pounce. “This is a sad day for Nassau County and unfortunately another crippling hit to our local economy,” Nassau Democratic Leader Kevan Abrahams said in a statement shortly after the relocation news. “To lose the Islanders, Nassau’s only professional sports franchise, is an epic failure of leadership at all levels.

what?’” he asks. John Durso, president of the Long Island Federation of Labor and a staunch proponent of the failed 2011 bid, says there’s enough blame to go around for the leaders of both political parties—with fans paying the ultimate price. “I think it’s an absolute shame,” he says. “The loss of the Islanders can be laid at the doorsteps of both political parties. It’s a disgrace that the people of Long Island are going to be deprived of their team. It’s just a horrendous thing for the economy of Nassau County. It would be easy to blame Charles Wang but it’s not as if he didn’t try to get this thing done. There were mistakes made—everybody gets that—on many sides. “We have to start all over again and say, ‘Okay, what are we going to do with that property?’” continues Durso. “We can’t have a giant skateboard park for the kids. That’s not going to put the thousands of workers who need jobs back to work.” “When it was a Republican administration, Democrats weren’t supporting

it,” he adds. “When it was a Democratic administration, Republicans weren’t supporting it. Who are the losers? The people of this county and the families of the construction workers who could’ve gone to work to rebuild that Coliseum, and the fans.” Others were more optimistic. At Wednesday’s press conference, NHL Commissioner Bettman told Islanders fans that now they “don’t have to worry about the future of the club, the club is staying local, you’ll be able to get here locally.” “Charles Wang is the real hero today,” said Ratner. “He has kept this team in New York State.” David Pennetta, president and chairman of the economic development committee at the Commercial Industrial Brokers Society of Long Island, is already looking to the future. “I think it’s finally over, which is a good thing, because it’s been inhibiting any other movement on that development piece,” he tells the Press. “It’s something that was never financially viable to stand on its own, and it always needed additional development there to support the cost of redoing the Coliseum. Trying to get the islanders to stay has been holding this up for years. “They’re leaving,” he continues. “We can now focus on economic development, which is going to create, in the short term, construction, engineering and architectural jobs.” For Islanders fans, news of the retreat evoked mixed emotions. Leslie Martin, 30, of Hicksville, is crushed. “I am disappointed that more wasn’t done to keep the team in Nassau County,” she tells the Press. “It’s hard to

I think this is only going to hurt Nassau County and the people who reside therein.” Harris Peskin, 21, who lives in Brooklyn, grew up in Syosset and whose father has had season tickets since 1972, was also saddened—though he’s happy it’s Brooklyn and not Kansas City or Quebec, two other locations long bandied about as possible destinations. “It’s really disappointing to me, because Nassau County, it’s the home of the New York Islanders, there they won four straight Stanley Cups—all the memories that I’ve had going there to the games with my family, my father telling me where he was sitting when he watched the games—it was something really special and I hoped that one day I would be able to replicate that with any future family I might have,” he says. “In the end, politics prevailed and they couldn’t get anything built there.” Thirty five-year-old lifelong Isles fan Charles Mcanulla, another LI transplant to Brooklyn, is excited. “The Barclays Center is a beautiful area,” he tells the Press, adding this jab: “I don’t know where Kate Murray is going to be three years from now, but I know where the Islanders will be in 25 years.”

Cover Story

An Introspective Look at Westbury Music Fair’s Storied Past, Present and Future One of those unforgettable shows had taken place less than two weeks before The Doors’ gigs, just three days after the assassination of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., when jazz singer Nina Simone and her band delivered an emotional, nearly 15-minute-long rendition of “Why? (The King of Love Is Dead)” in his honor. The song was written by Simone’s bassist Gene Taylor immediately after hearing of the killing, and with little rehearsal prior to the show, it was dedicated to the slain civil rights leader. The performance stands as one of her most memorable, immortalized on her 1968 album ’Nuff Said! Besides singing, Simone laments with the audience about the tragic loss. Now celebrating its 57th year, Westbury stands as testament to the indelibility and immortality of live performances and remains an essential part of the very fabric that makes up LI. So many Long Islanders have gone to see their first concert at Westbury, because it’s hosted artists that span nearly every genre and demographic, from crooners Tony Bennett and Perry Cuomo to The Kinks, Bonnie Raitt, country music stalwarts Willie Nelson and Trace Adkins, R&B aficionados En Vogue and Aretha Franklin, Gen-Xers Counting Crows and Squeeze, jazzbos Wynton Marsalis and Dave Brubeck, blues stalwarts Robert Cray and B.B. King, rockers Aaron Lewis from Staind and Danzig, to countless comedians ranging from Jerry Seinfeld to Andrew Dice Clay. The venue is not merely surviving, but thriving during a time when so many others— both locally and regionally— have shuttered forever. Massapequa’s Solomon Grundy’s,

It was April 19, 1968, and The Doors took the stage for their second set. Most of The Doors, anyway. As keyboardist Ray Manzarek, drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robby Krieger began playing “Peace Frog” to a packed house, lead singer Jim Morrison was nowhere to be found. Suddenly, there was commotion in the darkness at the back of the room, and Morrison stumbled down one of the ramps leading to the stage. The crowd taunted him as he joined his band mates and began hurling jabs at the audience in between songs and halfway through them. A familiar tune would start—whether it be “Light My Fire” or “Soul Kitchen”— and Morrison would sing a few lines, rant about something else, then veer off, even picking fights with random audience members. Boos filled the air. When a security guard epic: nycb theatre at westbury, formerly attempted to calm the singer known as westbury music fair, began as a tented performance venue (top). countless down, Morrison grabbed him, legendary acts, including the doors and pulling him toward the stage. the who (posters) have graced its stage. The guard broke free but lost his hat as he fled. Morrison mockingly tried to wear it onstage before he let out an ear-splitting shriek that ended the show. As the house lights came on, Manzarek, Densmore and Krieger walked off, but the Lizard King lay on the stage howling before returning to his feet and dancing and chanting as if he were possessed. It was a quintessential moment in rock history—the iconic image of leather-clad Morrison sprawled on the floor amid the amplifiers and gear, microphone in hand, writhing and yelping, forever immortalized by famed rock and roll photographer Ken Regan. Yet the venue was not San Francisco’s Fillmore, Winterland or even Café Wha? in Greenwich Village. This priceless performance happened right here on Long Island at what was then called the Westbury Music Fair. The Doors are just one of countless legendary musical acts to have graced the stage of Westbury, now known as the NYCB Theatre at Westbury, a 3,000-seat performance venue famous throughout the industry for its rich history and circular, in-the-round-style, revolving stage. Originally founded in 1955 as a tented performance space in an abandoned lime pit near a potato field just off the Northern State Parkway, Westbury has hosted everyone from Liberace, The Who and Bruce Springsteen to Charles Aznavour and ZZ Top, to name just a few who’ve wowed generations of Long Islanders. 12

Plainview’s Vanderbilt, Long Beach’s Malibu, Island Park’s The Action House, West Islip’s Hammerheads, Farmingdale’s Crazy Donkey, Manhattan’s CBGBs and Max’s Kansas City are but a few. Earlier this month longtime blues and jazz club Kenny’s Castaways in the Village joined those ranks. Perhaps Westbury’s longevity is by design. Jason Stone, senior vice president of booking for monolithic concert promotion company Live Nation—the largest live entertainment and eCommerce company in the world—tells the Press that Westbury offers patrons an experience that music lovers simply can’t find anywhere else. “Westbury’s importance is tantamount to no other venue in suburban locations,” he says. “She has been the presenter of everything from Jim Morrison and The Doors to Janis Joplin. Westbury has the local history of performance from Judy Garland

and Lena Horne to Frank Sinatra and Benny Goodman.” In addition to its status in the annals of rock history, the venue has also been—and remains—a driving force in shaping the pop culture landscape of today. “In the contemporary world, let’s remember that Britney Spears, 98 Degrees and In Sync started their careers at Westbury,” he adds. “In comedy, we can remember shows with Johnny Carson, George Carlin, Rodney Dangerfield, Bob Hope, Henny Youngman, among other greats. The list would take up your whole newspaper if I listed the greatest names of music and comedy that have performed at Westbury.” Stone should know. He’s been in the music business for more than 37 years, and in his current position is responsible for all of the clubs in the general New York Northeast market, including NYC’s Irving Plaza, Huntington’s Paramount and

the Gramercy Theatre, along with special Live Nation events such as the recent three-day Bamboozle Fest held in Asbury Park back in the spring. That’s in addition to advising and consulting on a national basis all of Live Nation’s theater properties in the House of Blues entertainment division. It is with Westbury that Stone has had the longest and most complex relationship, and it’s a connection shared by many local major musicians who have also performed there. “I love going back and I love my hometown,” says Steve Vai, Carle Place’s Grammy-winning guitar virtuoso. “I still have a lot of friends [there] and [whenever] I play Westbury, I look forward to it. The audience is basically half-comped. [At] the end of my show[s], I [may as well] turn the stage around and make the audience my backstage.” “You sort of have to control

your emotions and realize that not everybody wants to hear how excited you are to be in town before going to a concert,” admits John Tesh, the radio, TV and pop music megastar and Garden City native. “It’s fun for me. People show up and it brings back great memories.” For Those About to Rock In a few hours the J. Geils Band will be gearing up for a two-hour show on Westbury’s revolving stage. But for now, the space is empty aside from a trio of roadies sound-checking the band’s equipment. And of course, Stone. The father of three speaks passionately and affectionately about the venue and its humble beginnings, tracing a timeline that both chronicles and mirrors many of his own life’s milestones.

venue were planted in Devon, Pa. That’s where partners Frank Ford, Lee Guber and Shelly Gross kicked in $100,000 to lease land for what would become the Valley Forge Music Fair in 1955. Ford and Guber were inspired after they’d gone to a musical show held in a tent the year before and believed they could do a far better job. With Gross on board, the trio’s moxy paid off, when on June 23, 1955, a Broadway road company staged a performance of the musical Guys and Dolls, starring Pat Harrington and Marilyn Ross, with a cameo by then-local personality Ed McMahon. The inaugural Valley Forge season netted them more than $50,000 in profits, so they decided to expand to the Island. On June 18, 1956, beneath a tent set up in an industrial area of Westbury, the 10-week season opened with a performance of The King and I, starring Charles Korvin and Constance Carpenter. It was a tremendous success. A decade later, Ford was out of the picture, and Guber and Gross decided in 1966 to build a 3,000seat building, transforming the venue from being seasonal to staying open year-round. It was also around then

that bookings ventured beyond comedians, musicals and Vegas-affiliated acts (which continue to be a staple to this day) and started encompassing more contemporary acts, such as the Jackson Five and Jethro Tull. Westbury Music Fair couldn’t have come along at a better time. Suburbia was exploding by leaps and bounds and Long Islanders needed a venue to call their own. “Westbury meant more to Long Island than it did to the rest of the country,” veteran music industry analyst Bob Grossweiner tells the Press. “There was nothing happening on Long Island at the time. This was an important venue. It was like the Supper Club of Long Island without the supper. Jack Benny, Johnny Mathis and Tony Bennett are the acts that have always played here. When The Who and The Doors were coming through back in around 1968, there were no other places for them to play, theoretically.” Among the young fans whose tastes made the leap from pop to rock and roll was respected entertainment journalist Wayne Robins, whose career found him filling the role of Newsday’s resident rock critic for two decades before becoming a published

author and teaching writing at NYU. “The first show I saw at Westbury was probably The Doors in 1968,” he recalls. “Like a lot of rock bands, they seemed spooked by the theatrein-the-round idea, but they adjusted pretty quickly. I also saw the original aggregation of Steely Dan in 1972, just as ‘Do It Again’ was breaking big on pop radio. I looked at [bandmates Donald] Fagen and [Walter] Becker and said, ‘Wait, I know these guys! I’d gone to Bard College (the subject of “Reelin’ in the Years”) with them.’ At this show, by the way, Steely Dan was the opening act, for Cheech & Chong.” Enter Stone, whose love affair with Westbury began with an introduction to Gross and Guber in 1974. At that time, the Music Fair Group consisted of eight theatres up and down the East Coast, from Miami to Massachusetts—all designed as theatres in the round. It was a unique concept at the time, Stone says, and he was smitten. He joined the group as a “runner”—the guy who’d get coffee, drop off artists at the airport and make Xerox copies—the bottom rung in the entertainment business. “At the time there wasn’t an amphitheater circuit,” he explains. “Amphitheaters were playing the

New Jersey opera and ballet. They weren’t playing rock shows, per se. Every once in a while there would be one. But I knew that I wanted to be in the concert business and the only concert business in the adult contemporary world outside of Las Vegas— there wasn’t even Atlantic City at the time—was these Music Fair Theatres. “You’d have an artist, like say, Tom Jones, [who] would play Vegas residencies but had nowhere else to play,” he says. “So in the summer, he would play a week in Westbury, a week at the Valley Forge Theatre in Pennsylvania, a week in Baltimore and a week in Massachusetts. So we had theatres that could take up the whole summer. “What they were doing was buying eight weeks of Tom Jones playing eight Music Fairs and it was a Broadway schedule back then,” he continues. “It was the only mentality. So he would play an eight-show week in six days—there’d be a matinee on Wednesdays and on Saturdays, and he’d have the Monday off where they’d travel to another theater. That would be a travel day and then they’d do another full week. He’d play eight weeks of Music Fair, go on tour for us and that’s the way it evolved.” With their solid reputation for

rock and roll adventures throughout the years. One such tale, as recounted by Stone, involves Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard on a double-bill that found “The Killer” himself deciding to fly up from Nashville in his own plane only to be waylaid. “We are setting up the stage for the evening show and Little Richard is sound-checking around 6 p.m.,” Stone recalls. “I get a call from the airfield in Memphis that Jerry Lee ran out of gas when leaving Nashville

and had to land in Memphis to fuel up the plane. He would be in Westbury as early as possible. We started the show at 8:30 p.m. Little Richard was scheduled to perform for one hour that night. He stayed on stage and sang and played piano for two and a half hours. We had a police escort at Republic Airport when Jerry Lee landed at 10:45 p.m. They rushed him over and he took the stage, singing ‘Great Ball Of Fire,’ at 11:30 p.m. and did his whole show, ending at 1 a.m.” Another time, legendary rock and roll guitarist Chuck Berry was the victim of poor directions— something many Long Islanders can relate to. “Chuck Berry was scheduled to play at Westbury; everything all set up for the show,” adds Stone. “[His back-up] band was rehearsing and the opening act, a comedian, was set to start the show. I get a call at 7 p.m. and it’s Chuck Berry. He says

he is lost. He thought the theater was in Westbury, Connecticut—two hours away from Long Island.  The comedian went on for an hour, and we had a one-hour intermission. Chuck got to the theater at 10 p.m. and had a great show. On his contract with the agency, he showed me that they mistakenly wrote, ‘Address of Venue—Westbury, Connecticut.’” While some may characterize Westbury’s revolving stage as an odd way to view a show, the space lends itself to an undeniable extra degree of intimacy. Performers often enter by walking down one of the many aisles sloping toward the stage—perhaps none so memorably as Morrison— giving the artists more chances to interact with the audience, such as when blues legend Buddy Guy, a frequent guest, employs a lengthy cord that runs from his amplifier to his guitar and makes his way through the crowd toward the rear doors in the middle of his set. It’s an attribute that Robins says makes the venue a very special place. “The best thing about Westbury, aside from free parking, is the intimacy,” the music critic explains. “There’s not a bad seat in the house, and even if you are in the last row, the

performers remain life-sized and feel close enough to touch. Diana Ross once came out into the audience, sat on my lap, and handed me the microphone for ‘Reach Out and Touch Somebody’s Hand.’ “It was a terrifying cosmic moment for a critic,” Robins adds with a laugh. Stone spent nearly 30 years with the Music Fair Group, moving up the ranks, and by 1982, he became the booker for its string of venues. In 1990 he attempted to buy the three remaining music fairs—Baltimore, Pennsylvania and Westbury—but fell short due to a lack of capital. Following the advice of Miles Wilkin, the head of Pace Concerts—which ran Philadelphia’s E Center Amphitheatre, New Jersey’s PNC Center and Jones Beach— Stone left the Music Fair Group for three years, returning in 1996 and offering to buy Westbury. By this time, Gross had lost the note on Valley Forge to the bank. Stone was initially rebuffed, but a meeting with longtime friend and legendary promoter Ron Delsner led him to investor Bob Sillerman, the future head of SFX Entertainment. “I pitched [Sillerman] on what my plan was for Westbury and why I

thought it was a viable purchase, and he had the check for me the next day,” Stone tells the Press. “He eventually bought Delsner Entertainment and me. We all got rolled up into the second purchase of SFX. So we became the second purchase in the SFX rollup as it’s called now by all the promoters. Bob Sillerman is the one who gave Delsner the money and me the money to buy Westbury. In turn, I put [up] my company, Westbury Music Fair at the time, and rolled it into Delsner/Slater, which was the big rock promoter in New York.” Nowadays, what is now called NYCB Theatre at Westbury has gone far beyond its humble origins as a multi-colored tent pitched in an abandoned lime pit.

history. Wallpaper that went up during a 2004 renovation consist of show billboards of the acts that have played here.

discussing Westbury and insists he’s motivated him to come to his fair share of shows here. “I’ve seen a lot of shows throughout the years,” smiles Gold, of Rockville Centre. “It’s one of my favorite venues. I had tickets to see The Carpenters a few years ago before Karen passed away. My first show here was Cheech and Chong about 30 years ago. [What’s amazing] is that it’s still pretty much the same as it’s always been.” “You can still see pretty well from almost any seat and it’s about 15 minutes from my house, so that’s a big selling point,” adds Rogers. “It’s homey and very comfortable. It’s like a big living room.” When the J. Geils Band finally takes the stage (minus the guitarist for whom the group is named because of a legal mess), Westbury’s much-cited intimacy becomes apparent—the liveliness of the band in such a small space creates the kind of atmosphere you might feel at a much smaller club. Even with all the gear crammed on the stage along with two very comely and curvy back-up singers, the Boston outfit kicks off the evening with the syncopated Albert Collins shuffle “Sno-Cone.”

Frontman Peter Wolf sings and scats while his bandmates lay down grooves layered with Seth Justman’s keyboard runs and Magic Dick’s wailing harp solos; the stage ever-so slightly rotating just enough that you realize you’re seeing the musicians at a different vantage point without ever really seeing the band move. Rick Eberle, a longtime LI music scene veteran and publicist for Loaded Rock Shows, gives the revolving stage a thumbs-up. He raves about how “it gives everyone a chance to check out the best seats in the house so to speak, [which makes for a live experience that is] interesting and unique.” Eberle, who’s seen about 15 shows here, gushes about stand-out performances by the Counting Crows, Pat Benatar and the Allman Brothers Band. He’s also quick to recognize the role the theatre continues to have. “Westbury gives us a chance to see acts that draw 3,000-plus, like the Ringo Starrs and The Whos of the world,” he says. “It’s very important to have a nice mid-size venue to be able to go see a national act without having to travel to the city.

opinion, having been around since the drive-in movie theatre was next door.” Immortality While Jim Morrison can no longer torment audiences in the round or otherwise and these days The Who, now down to Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, are firmly ensconced as an arena act, big names continue to play on Westbury’s revolving stage. Upcoming weeks will see Al Green, Melissa Etheridge, Tony Bennett, Martina McBride and Kenny Rogers rolling through, to name a few. It’s this combination of top-flight talent showing up in LI’s backyard that gives Stone reason to reiterate what a special place the Theatre at Westbury has been and, hopefully, will always continue to be. It’s so much more than just a music venue, Stone says. “Westbury is not a theater, it is not a business,” he says. “Westbury is a family that loves what they do every day, and it is all for the love of each other. These are your neighbors that work here. These are your friends that wake up every day with so much love in their hearts for this place we call home, Westbury.”

The Best of Long Island is Back with a New Partner and New Categories for 2013 By Jaclyn Gallucci Finding the best in Long Island business is no small endeavor and these days it’s more important than ever. During the past few years, the Best of L.I. program has turned the spotlight on some of Long Island’s hardest hit victims of the economic recession: our local businesses. The program recorded 50,300 submissions in 2010. Last year, that number soared to 320,000 submissions—a 536 percent increase—and more than 1.2 million page views. That’s 1,200,000 sets of eyes, nearly the entire population of Suffolk County. What began as a small editor’s choice arts and entertainment program has taken on a life of its own and it just keeps growing. Now in its eighth year, LI’s favorite Best Of program has teamed up with Long Island’s favorite financial cooperative, Bethpage Federal Credit Union. The new partnership has culminated in the Bethpage Best of L.I. Awards, an exemplary collaboration truly worthy of this competition. The Bethpage Best of L.I. Has become the largest business awards program in the history of Long Island. This year’s competition features more than 5,000 unique nominees in 450 categories, and will name more than 900 Long Island winners in January 2013. To fine-tune the program, revisions are being made constantly. Last year we introduced new categories such as Best Smoothie, Best Life Coach, and Best Author, and added an entire Weddings section that introduced voters to 25 additional categories including: Best B6

Accommodations, Best Bands, Best Favors, Best Florists, Best Jewelry, Best Event Planning and Best Place to Host a Bridal Shower, among others. This year we’ve added even more to our Weddings section, with categories including: Best Bachelorette and Bachelor Party Locations, Best Hotels for Guests, Best Destination Wedding Travel Planners, Best Honeymoon Staycation Destinations, Best Place to Buy a Wedding Ring, Best Wedding Photo Op Locations, Best Party Bus Companies and more. Although it’s hard to believe, we’ve even found another category to add to our food section: Best Soft Pretzel. For animal lovers wondering where to find their companions mini raincoats—or natural food—check out our expanded Pets section, which includes new categories such as Best Grooming Salon, Best Organic Pet Food/Supply Store, Best Pet Clothing Store and even Best Pet Photographer. The Bethpage Best of L.I. competition runs the gamut. From your favorite bowling alley to your favorite bakery, your favorite podiatrist to your favorite dentist, all your number ones have a place here and you are the judge. The nominees for 2013 have been chosen by Long Island and you decide who makes it to the very top. The best gyro, the best slice of pizza and the best wings may not fix the economy or bring about world peace, but they will make you happy, at least for a little while. So, be happy. You deserve it—and so does the rest of Long Island!

Finding Fall Romance on Long Island BY MAUREEN TARA NELSON, PRIVATE MATCHMAKER, SINGLES COLUMNIST, AND DATING COACH.

“Is fall time the easiest time of year to meet people?” I’m always asked. Yes it is. More people are out and about in the fall months, thus giving us more opportunities to meet people. There are also many more exciting things to do with the nice cool weather upon us. Here are some fun examples of how single people can try to meet other single people in the fall: Join an indoor volleyball league. You don’t even have to be good at the sport. Many leagues have all different levels of experience. Usually the costs are also very reasonable. Even if you don’t meet your soul mate, at least you’ll be getting exercise. You might even meet a bunch of new friends, and then you’ll meet their friends.

Advertorial

You get the point! Walking the Jones Beach Field 6 boardwalk, I see many singles there each weekend, as I am there myself enjoying the exercise and atmosphere. Join a cooking class. Cooking is “hot” this season. If you don’t know how to prepare an exotic meal, now is the perfect time to learn. Many singles enjoy learning how to cook. Can you ballroom dance? This is a perfect place to meet singles, any time of the year. Have a dinner party at your house and ask each of your friends to bring “one single friend.” This is becoming a popular way for singles to meet. Make sure you take the time this fall to get yourself “out there” and meet new people. Have a happy Halloween! From your Long Island Matchmaker, Maureen Tara Nelson.

LONG ISLAND’S FOOD OBSESSION

Restaurant Voting Hits an All-Time High By Laura Cerrone The Long Island Press is now full swing into the Best of L.I. season, our favorite time of the year, and as our voting numbers would show, it’s Long Island diners’ favorite time, too. Voting in the Bethpage Best of L.I. Restaurants category has increased 60 percent since last year and as new restaurants, from local eats to national chains, pop up on our shores, we cannot help but be obsessed with food. It’s everywhere we look. “There’s a culture of going out and entertaining yourself,” says Long Island Press Executive Vice President Felice Cantatore, who says the voting in the restaurant category is so high because food is important to everyone. “Going to a restaurant is an experience.” From Greek gyros to Italian specialties like manicotti to authentic Thai noodles, from Pub Grub to diner food, burger joints to sushi bars, you don’t have to travel far for a good meal here, which makes every category—like Best Burger, Best Pizza Slice, Best Lunch Deal—in the Restaurant Section so competitive. The community votes and the top three restaurants are picked in each category, an esteemed feat that proves they truly are the best Long Island has to offer. Ivan Sayoles, the president and owner of Best of L.I. contender Rachel’s Waterside Grill in Freeport says they are ready to make the jump from two-year winner of the Best Seafood category to All-Around Best Restaurant. They have been encouraging all of their patrons to cast daily votes by dropping off a reminder slip with each check. And they’ve worked hard to keep climbing the Best Of L.I. ladder, not only by churning out the finest in seafood, but offering a one-of-a-kind dining option. As if an up close view of the water B12

wasn’t enough, in the past year Rachel’s Waterside Grill added a retractable glass enclosure that has turned its waterfront view into a waterfront experience. “It’s essentially outdoors dining all year,” says Sayoles, adding that the restaurant just had its best summer ever, and hopes it will be reflected in the voting process. And that’s what makes Long Island royalty when it comes to food. Eating is much more than simply picking up a fork and knife around here. It’s a night or day out. It’s celebratory. It’s social. It’s ambience. And like Cantatore says, it’s an experience. Long Island’s food is also an homage to our agricultural community. Shandon Court, another Best of L.I. contender, incorporates Long Island-grown ingredients whenever possible in their food—which includes unique dishes like Jameson Filet Mignon cooked in an Irish whiskey reduction and their Corned Beef & Cabbage marinated in Harp Ale—even moreso since their Best Continental Restaurant win last year. “We’ve done more locally sourced food, and amped up the wine menu and specialty cognacs,” says Shandon Court owner Sara Keenan, who says their menu has undergone major expansions. Around here, restaurants have to do everything they can to keep up with an ever-rising standard that gets set higher every year by a public that has grown used to an endless amount of dining options. And once that’s done, they have to get the word out. By incorporating the Bethpage Best of L.I. program into their advertisements and reaching out to their fans on social media, Shandon Court hopes again to take a top spot in this year’s competition. Keenan says the restaurant will

kick the voting process into high gear the last three weeks of the competition. It’s a familiar scene around Long Island this time of year: dozens of restaurants vying for a title that will set them apart from the masses. Long Islanders, used to having a veritable United Nations of food, once only available in the city, at their fingertips are looking for the next big thing, or for confirmation of what they already know. We’ve become spoiled, in a way, with around-the-clock delivery, gourmet food trucks, a double-decker diner and even a McDonald’s that looks like it came out of Victorian England. We expect more from our restaurants, because there’s more to Long Island’s food obsession than just food. It’s what food represents—comfort, good times, friends, family, tradition, even a getaway from the ordinary that makes it, well, simply the best.

For years, Long Islanders have cast their votes for restaurants they feel deserve recognition and this year there’s no shortage of contenders for the Bethpage Best of L.I. title. But there is a new approach to voting in the Best Restaurant category. The new voting process will involve previous first-place winners from each type of restaurant—Mexican, Chinese, Thai, Italian, Buffet-style, etc.—being pooled together as nominees and then voted on for the title of the best. “I thought it was a great idea to put last year’s first-place winners up against each other,” says Long Island Press Executive Vice President Felice Cantatore. “I felt that you couldn’t nominate a best restaurant for Best Restaurant with all these categories, and decided to pit individuals against each other.” Last year, Best Restaurant nominees were chosen by the direct votes for that category. This year the Best Restaurant contenders were picked by compiling the public’s top choices from all the categories in the Restaurant Section. The new nomination style means that no particular style of restaurant has an edge. They’re all on a level playing field. “This enables Long Island businesses to have a one-of-a-kind marketing opportunity,” said Cantatore. “Restaurants and food are important to Long Islanders, and eating at the best should be the best!” h e a lt h c a re spec i a l sect i on

VOTE Your Opinion Matters By KaITlyN Kincaid What is so great about the Bethpage Best of L.I. election process is that you pick the nominee pool—everyone has an equal opportunity to be represented. It’s democracy at its best. This year’s nominees have been compiled into a master ballot available at BestOf.LongIslandPress.com, and the polls are open through Dec. 15. During this time, everyone can vote for whatever local store, restaurant, business or person they feel should hold a Bethpage Best of L.I. title. You are allowed one vote per IP address, per day for each category. These categories are divided into sections such as Arts and Entertainment, Food & Drink, Nightlife & Spirits, Health and Wellness, Weddings, Pets, Restaurants and others to make it easy to find a specific place you’re looking for. Once the voting ends, the results are added up and double-checked for fraudulent voting or obvious abuse (those votes are then removed). After this process, the results are added up again. UPickEm, a third party administrator, runs the Bethpage Best of L.I. voting pages. So cast your votes now and remember: In order to find out who’s the best, you need to tell us!

Program This Week: Best Arts Criticism – Honorable Mention Hipster Nation By Michelle Arp, The Broadcaster, East Islip High School

It began with the beatniks in the 50s, and throughout the 20th century this original counterculture evolved into the hippies, punk rockers and grunge bands, respectively. All of these distinct societal groups, as different as they may be, have one thing in common: the need and desire for rebellion and change. But our present counterculture—the hipsters—are more concerned about their wardrobe than anything to do with protest. An August 2008 Huffington Post article by Julia Pelvin explains, “The whole point of hipsters is that they avoid labels and being labeled. However, they

all dress the same and conform in their non-conformity.” There is a distinct look about hipsters which is much like the countercultures of yesterday, and this brings us to exhibit A: the hipster look and lifestyle. Hipsters can be oftentimes seen in granny sweaters, way-too-skinny jeans, oversized black-rimmed glasses and knitted beanies. The hipster lifestyle revolves around photography, Parliament cigarettes, vegan dining and shopping at American Apparel and Urban Outfitters. Douglas Haddow, a writer for a quintessential hipster website, AdBusters. org, comments in his 2008 article that “the hipster is a consumer group—using their capital to purchase empty authenticity and rebellion. But the moment a trend, band, sound, style or feeling gains too much exposure, it is suddenly looked

upon with disdain.” This brings us to our next point: the horrific noise that is definitively hipster music. All of the past countercultures revolved around music. The beats banged on their bongos, the hippies sang acoustic heartfelt melodies, the punks shredded on electric guitars and the grunge garage bands shouted eerie tunes of teenage angst. The hipsters are into music, let’s give them that. But the quality of their music is just short of polka. Between the electro-pop sound of the keyboard and the meaningless lyrics, it’s hard to tell if hipster bands are trying to write good songs or if they’re merely killing time. On the top of the list of “hipster bands” we have: Foster the People, Belle &

Sebastian, Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah, Feist and Animal Collective, amongst countless others. Through their mediocre music, anyone can tell that hipsters are more about quantity than quality—that’s probably the reason for a new music video every week. As we go further into the 21st century and into a sea of possibilities, it is becoming evident that the hipsters won’t be going away anytime soon. If these people aren’t bothering us, why bother them? It’s because of their lack of a cause. They stand for nothing. All hipsters seem to do is find the latest, coolest thing, explore it for a week than move on to the next. It’s all disposable. The hipster isn’t “cool,” it’s just a name given to the restless middle class who are in search of some truth. Let’s face it, it’s a hipster nation. We just live in it.

Invisible Stars

Bassist, vocalist, composer Esperanza Spalding unveils the brilliant compositions of her new release, Radio Music Society, in a dynamic big band format. Inspired by her desire to write for large ensembles, Spalding has crafted her performances to spotlight the talents of her 12-piece world class band. Radio Music Society is a companion release, rather than a sequel, to Spalding’s previous internationally acclaimed Chamber Music Society, which culminated in her winning the Best New Artist Grammy Award in 2011. Spalding plays the Apollo Theater on Friday, 10.26 and on Saturday, 10.27. —Kaitlyn Kincaid

Everclear and Eve 6 play The Emporium in Patchogue with special guests Namesake and The Given Motion on Sunday, 10.28. Hard Times And Nursery Rhymes is Social Distortion’s first record since 2004, but the break hasn’t changed them much. It maintains the band’s key components — an all-but-perfected mix of punk, bluesy rock n’ roll and outlaw country — but it also finds them stretching the boundaries of their signature sound. Over the past 30 years, the punk godfathers in the band have all but trademarked their brand of hard rockabilly/punk that’s cut with the melodic, road-tested lyrics of frontman Mike Ness. Social D plays Roseland Ballroom on Friday, 10.26, then lands at the Paramount on Saturday, 10.27. —Daphne Livingston

AIMEE MANN Interested in human dysfunction and self-delusion?

You could spend your evening reading the DSM-IV Manual. Or you could opt to spend time with an even more entertaining catalog of idiosyncracies: Charmer, the latest album from singer-songwriter Aimee Mann, who is as fine a chronicler of the human comedy as pop music has produced. Names have been obscured to protect the guilty, but you’ll recognize yourself in these narratives, and the fellow travelers who have conned, enabled, victimized, or (yes) charmed you. Mann plays Town Hall on Saturday, 10.27; Bowery Ballroom on Monday, 10.29 and the Music Hall of Williamsburg on Tuesday, 10.30. —K.K.

FRANKLIN SQUARE HORROR

It’s only open one night a year and no matter where you live, it’s worth the trip to 1148 Norbay St. in Franklin Square. Picked as one of America’s scariest household haunts and voted one of the Best of Long Island, Joe Allocco’s Franklin Square Horror has been scaring people, and raising money for local charities, for 17 years. New this year is Leatherface’s Mausoleum of Madness, where you will come face to face with the horrors dwelling within. See if you are brave enough to make it through the last house on the dead end from 7-11 p.m. on Halloween night. —J.G.

D&P Auto Sales & Service

the home of the orIgInaL CertIfIed used Car about us D&P auto sales originated in 1979 as a family business originally founded by Dominick and Phil Assabi. Dominick spent 35 years in sales and management at new car facilities in Ford and Chevrolet. Obtaining much experience in running a successful car business and satisfying customers, Phil’s background is mechanical and having learned sales and management through his father, is now the owner and operator. Phil’s sons are currently learning all aspects of continuing this successful operation in the hopes of meeting and exceeding customers expectations for years to come! Our cars are ALL hand-picked by Phil with 34 years experience as a technician to insure you are buying a reliable model. His background as a car enthusiast and involvement in restoring and collecting show cars affords him a keen eye to ascertain the best quality available. This is why customers walk in the showroom and constantly mistake our cars for new cars! When you buy here, you purchase the vehicle directly from the owner, NOT a commissioned salesman, eliminating a hidden agenda! As the owner, Phil understands that if you are COMPLETELY satisfied and 100% comfortable this will inevitably bring back sales and recommendations!! Come on down and see for yourself! People asked all the time what is the key ingredient to a successful used car business. Our philosophy is….. “That’s Easy!” First step, knowing what NOT to sell! There are many models out there that are problematic and troublesome and this is why it is VERY important to have strong mechanical knowledge. Most car dealers are businessmen in the car business, not car guys in business and therefore have no clue whether that model car is reliable or not or whether it’s been in an accident and put back together. Secondly, be straight and upfront

nominated ‘best used Car dealer’ on Long Island vote for us at www. bestof.longislandpress.com/vote

with the customer. The price you’re quoted is what you pay! You won’t be getting an advertised low-ball price to get you in the door, and then a list of bogus fees added to the buyers order when you sign up. Instead, quote the customers with a price that will include everything; full service vehicle prep and warranty. Third step is to put your money where your mouth is. We warranty all of our cars out of pocket. Beyond that, we sell a fully serviced car! Our

exclusive delivery policy includes four brand new tires; complete brake job, engine tune-up, transmission service, coolant system, brake system, steering system service, four wheel alignment, new wiper blades, and oil change! This is to ensure that in addition to warrantying our products, we provide a vehicle that you can put miles and miles on before needing ANY major scheduled service. In conclusion, you are purchasing a vehicle with a strong record of reliability in the best possible condition you can find. Furthermore, this vehicle will be serviced like new and warranted by us so you’re not dealing with a third party warranty contract. This being the case, why would you spend your money on a new car when you’re getting the quality without paying the price? After purchasing a car from us, you will always come back! This will attest to why 90% of our business consists of repeats and referrals!! After all, D&P has put over
