Sound Smart at a Party A Texas mom found herself in the Guinness Book of World Records for donating more breast milk than any other woman to help feed babies in intensive care whose mothers can’t breastfeed. Since

giving birth to her son in March 2011, Alicia Richman has donated almost 87 gallons of her breast milk, more than 23 gallons more than the previous record holder. She began to donate after she discovered she was producing more milk than she needed and was running out of freezer space. According to Mothers’ Milk Bank, the nonprofit she gavher milk to, just three ounces of milk is enough to feed a premature infant nine times, and Richman’s donations have most likely fed thousands of little ones… One woman in New Mexico has a strange obsession with a family’s patio furniture. The Dentandts say that the tres-

passer keeps going onto their front porch and rearranging their furniture. Angela Dentandt first thought her daughter was the culprit until she saw the determined woman on surveillance tape. She says that she puts the furniture back in its place etvery time it’s moved, but is running out of patience. The family says that if there is one more feng-shui attack they may end up pressing charges…

A new health study suggests that aspirin may help certain colorectal cancer patients. The Dana-Farber

Cancer Institute looked at more than 900 colorectal cancer patients and found that patients with tumors that had the gene PIK3CA responded to aspirin therapy. Five years later 97 percent of the patients on aspirin survived, compared to the 74 percent survival rate of those who did not take aspirin. Patients whose tumors did not have the PIK3CA mutation were not affected by aspirin therapy. The full report was published in the New England Journal of Medicine… When in Rome, get high? It turns out that Rome is one of the eight Italian cities where researchers found trace amounts of cocaine and marijuana in the air. Italy’s Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research found drugs in the air in Bologna, Florence, Milan, Naples, Palermo, Rome, Turin and Verona. While the amounts were large enough to be detected, they are still too small to have any type of mind-altering effect on people who breathe in the air (sorry, no free drugs). In addition to the drugs, caffeine and nicotine also showed up in the tests. Interestingly enough, the study found that the drug concentrations fluctuate throughout the year, and that the marijuana and caffeine levels go up during the winter months. The findings shouldn’t be too much of a shock to the Romans. A different study showed trace amounts of cocaine in Rome’s air back in 2006…

Letter from the Publisher

Style is in the stars.

Multicolor Gemstone and Diamond Starfish Pendant by Effy in 14K Rose Gold $2,399 Chain included

For better or for worse I grew up on country music. Long story. For the past week and a half the refrain, “I am a lineman for the county,” from Glenn Campbell’s Wichita Lineman has been running through my head. The lyrics were penned by the great Jimmy Webb, who has made Long Island his home, and they resonate with me every time I see crews from around the nation struggling to repair our grid in what can only be described as horrific conditions. The grid. Such a messy and incongruous mess of belching plants, substations, poles and lines that crisscross the Island and provide “juice” to our homes and businesses. Juice that we take for granted under normal circumstances. Juice that we realize we cannot possibly live without at times like these. I’m writing this letter to our readers from the Long Island Press’ third location in 10 days. Mother Nature’s howling surrogate, Sandy, knocked out the power in our Syosset headquarters last week, which prevented us from publishing an edition altogether as our reporters spread out across LI to provide updates as often as possible to Long Islanders desperate to connect with one another and comprehend what had occurred. Mother Nature then saw fit to deliver a further insult during this week’s storm by knocking out the power at our backup location in Garden City while we were on deadline. Undaunted, our staff wrapped up our computers and servers and brought them to Webair, the secure data center that hosts the Press’ website, also based in Garden City. So allow me to thank Adam Schwam from our IT company, Sandwire, for his heroic efforts and the Sandwire staff for graciously accommodating our entire team. Kudos as well to the good people at Webair for welcoming our bedouin family without hesitation and bringing us in from the snow and the cold. If you are reading these words in the printed edition of the Press, they are the reason. To say this has been a punishing week for the Island and the region is a laughable understatement. But the determination and grit exhibited by

those who were affected by the storms has been humbling. There will be plenty of time to Monday morning quarterback the response by our public officials and municipalities but suffice to say we are all united in our desire to heal and rebuild. This was a paradigm shift for Long Island that will need to be studied and reacted to swiftly. The time to be proactive has passed. How we move forward from this point will say everything about our chances to construct a sustainable economic, environmental and secure future for the next generation of Long Islanders. As a nation, we chose to hold tight to hope that was born in 2008 and not risk recalibrating our course. I have been vocal enough already with respect to the election, but I will make the following observation: Women are politically alive and empowered in the United States. This was the most positive development that could have occurred to stem the misogynistic tide of barbarism that has crept into the consciousness of the GOP. As a man, these words carry no irony as I write them on behalf of my daughters who will hopefully inherit a world where history marks this election as a new beginning for America’s herstory. And as for the “linemen for the county,” thank you for doing your best to re-electrify the grid and keep us warm. No doubt you have felt the wrath of those who waited the longest for power, but our rational selves know this is a larger problem and one we must face up to collectively. All of our hearts are broken by what we have witnessed in our seaside communities. All of our might belongs to them in the days, months and years ahead. Finally, I must be self-indulgent for a moment and take the opportunity to thank the members of the Long Island Press staff who worked tirelessly to update the Island with quality, necessary information in our time of need. I marvel not only at the ability of our staffers but their commitment to our vocation. You are giants. Jed Morey Publisher

The Target

TRUMP—OFF TARGET After the polls close and Obama is re-elected president, Donald Trump takes to Twitter to launch an endless series of rants, calling the election a “sham and a travesty” in way more than 140 characters. Another disgruntled billionaire!

PRICE GOUGERS—OFF TARGET After receiving hundreds of complaints in New York State, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announces he is opening an investigation into post-Hurricane Sandy price gouging. For the love of God, gouge us all you want, just somebody please: Turn on the lights!

SPLASHDATA—BULL’S EYE The security software developer releases its annual list of the most common passwords and “password,” “123456” and 12345678” are once again the three most popular used passwords. Really, after being warned over and over for years, if your password is “password” you deserve to get hacked.

LILO—OFF TARGET Long Island’s favorite trainwreck Lindsay Lohan is facing charges that she lied to police, telling them she wasn’t behind the wheel of her Porsche when it crashed into the back of an 18-wheeler on California’s Pacific Coast Highway in June. If convicted, she would be in violation of her jewelry theft probation and could end up back in jail. In other news, the Earth is round. NEIGHBORS—PARTIAL SCORE After Long Island takes a devastating hit from Sandy, kind-heartd and wonderful neighbors with power run extension cords from their homes to those without, some even set up charging stations on the side of the road, and thousands donate goods and services to those hardest hit along the coast. Unfortunately, none of these people live on our block. RONALD MCDONALD—BULL’S EYE A British man named Ronald McDonald is arrested and sentenced to 86 days in prison after violating a restraining order by following his wife into a McDonald’s restaurant. You just can’t make this stuff up…

NECC OWNERS

The death toll continues to rise from the fungusinfected pain medication produced by the New England Compounding Center, a Massachusetts company with an innocuous name that is at the heart of the largest outbreak of meningitis this country has ever seen. So far 14,000 people have been affected, 313 have become sick and at least 25 people have died. The scope of the tragedy is still expanding as federal and state investigators dig deeper into what went wrong­—for years—right under their eyes. Now they’re trying to play catch up before other people die. FDA inspectors reported that sterilization equipment at NECC had greenish-yellow residue, surfaces in the “clean rooms” were coated with bacteria or mold, and an air-conditioner was shut off nightly despite the importance of keeping the climate controlled. NECC has been shut down, and Ameridose, its sister firm, has suspended work until Nov. 5. According to news reports both firms are owned by Gregory Conigliaro and members of his family. Interestingly he also owns a recycling plant right next door, which has also drawn complaints. The contaminated vials of methylprednisolone acetate had “greenish black foreign matter” and “white filamentous material.” That can’t be good. What the scrutiny shows is that the public was betrayed, whether by a pharmaceutical system that put profits over people or a regulatory system that had no muscle and no will. Here’s our prescription: Owners of NECC...You’re fired!

The Quote

“I just spoke with Governor Romney and I congratulated him and Paul Ryan on a hard-fought campaign. We may have battled fiercely, but it’s only because we love this country deeply and we care so strongly about its future.” President Barack Obama with first last Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Jill Biden celebrate on stage at the election night party at McCormick Place, early Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012, in Chicago.

2. VISIT GASBUDDY.COM/SANDY: Long Island residents continue to wait on huge lines for gas sometimes only to find out, after three hours in line, there is none by the time they get up to the pump. Now GasBuddy.com, which compiles gas price data by utilizing a network of volunteer spotters, has created a fuel shortage tracker at GasBuddy.com/Sandy to ease that frustration. The site is similar to GasBuddy.com, which posts gas prices at all the gas stations in one zip code. But instead of prices, the new site compiles real time information on what gas stations in a particular area actually have gas, which ones don’t, and as of what time. There’s also a spot for you to report the status of gas stations in your area. The more people who participate, the more accurate it is. 3. YOUTUBE “DARPA ROBOTS”: We don’t know whether or not to be impressed, awed or absolutely terrified. As a way to respond to natural and man-made disasters like Fukushima and the Chilean Copiapo mine collapse, where human presence can be highly risky, the DARPA Robotics Challenge is tasked with developing robots for use by the military to perform human tasks. Check out some of the videos to come out of this project which includes a police robot and a robotic mule. 4. READ DU MAURIER’S REBECCA: Even in death, Daphne du Maurier can’t escape the drama surrounding her classic gothic thriller, Rebecca. In 1944, the British author stayed on Long Island at the Oyster Bay estate of publisher Nelson Doubleday to fight allegations she plagiarized Brazilian writer Carolina Nabuco’s Blind Windows. Just a few weeks ago, Rebecca made headlines again when Long Island stockbroker Mark Hatton was arrested and charged with fraud for bringing in fake investors for the musical adaptation on Broadway. Forget the horror movies and toss out all your Stephen King books, nothing compares to this timeless macabre tale.

1. Help your neighbors: The Long Island Press is teaming up with Ace Hardware stores across Long Island, the Kids Kloset, Rock Can Roll and Long Island Food Not Bombs to help our neighbors who have been devastated by Hurricane Sandy. All Long Island Ace Hardware locations are serving as drop-off locations for non-perishable food items and clothing donations to those in need on the south shore.

The number of Long Island homes and businesses-- out of the 1.1 million homes and businesses served by LIPA—that were blacked out at the peak of Hurricane Sandy. As of Wednesday, there were still more than 100,000 customers still without electricity.

6. BUY AN ARCADE LIGHT SWITCH: Power up your lights like it’s the ’80s and you’re the coolest kid in the arcade. This original light switch by Leet Dreams will take your home décor to a whole other level and you can even have it customized in any combination of eight button colors on either a black or white plate to either match the walls or your favorite game. Order one from AlephDesign on Etsy.com.

7. FOLLOW @GOOGLEFACTS: This Twitter account isn’t actually affiliated with Google, but everything it Tweets is true— and awesome. Follow @GoogleFacts and you, too, will know that the longest English word without any vowel is “twyndyllyngs,” J.K. Rowling claims that Lord Voldemort is pronounced without the “t,” and grapes explode if you put them in the microwave. 8. BUY A COLEMAN LED LANTERN: For those of us going on 10+ days without electric, heat, hot water, etc., or maybe for the ones who lost power for a few days and got it back only to lose it again when Long Island was hit with high winds and snow Wednesday, do yourself a favor and buy an LED lantern, if not for this time, for the next. It won’t keep you safe in the event of a zombie apocalypse, but it will keep you from falling down the stairs. 9. CATCH UP ON PRETTY LITTLE LIARS: Yeah, we know this is—in news lingo—“allegedly” a show for teens. But first of all, not one of the actors is under 22 and most are nearing 30. And this show, centered around multiple murders and cyber stalking, isn’t replete with the bad acting and pandering plotlines of other shows in the same vein like Secret Life of the American Teenager. If you didn’t watch the Halloween episode, see it On Demand. But first catch up from the beginning on Netflix. We dare you to watch one episode and not tune in for round two.

Tara “Remember Me?!?” Reid Nov. 8, 1975 Actress Tara Reid is a Scorpio, a sign known for embodying three levels of existence during the lifetime—the lowly Scorpion, the successful eagle and the powerful Phoenix resurrected, in no particular order. Reid began her career as a child, appearing in more than 100 commercials for brands like Jell-O, Milton Bradley and McDonalds (Eagle). She then hit it big and hit her peak with the super-succesful movie franchise American Pie (Phoenix). All that soon changed when Reid starred in a series of bombs that won her multiple Razzie Award nominations for Worst Actress (Scorpion). But Reid took it even further and began making her way through the three levels of post-Hollywood existence in a failed attempt to hang on to her dwindling career—posing semi-nude (Playboy), appearing on a reality show (Celebrity Big Brother UK) and disappearing into virtual anonymity.

Election RECAP

Election Takes Island By Storm OBAMA’S COATTAILS HELP KEY LOCAL RACE By Spencer Rumsey

When Chris DeLuca, Assemb. Phil Boyle’s 35-year-old campaign manager, checked their headquarters in Babylon Village after Hurricane Sandy had subsided on the Tuesday before Halloween, he stepped into the office and found water almost up to his knees. Guppies were swimming by his legs. “Yes, there were guppies!” recalls DeLuca, still in amazement. Surprisingly, despite the flooding, the office never lost power, just Internet service, phones and cable. What the storm would mean for the closely watched New York State Senate race hung in the air. Long Island was still reeling, and the answers seemed far away. But a week later, on Election Day, the Boyle office was bone dry, volunteers were working the phones, a flat-screen TV on the wall was tuned to Fox News for the latest updates and the only evidence of the storm’s wake was a stack of rusted lawn signs propped up against the wall. This was DeLuca’s first campaign for Boyle, a long-time Assemblyman who was making a bid for the seat held for 40 years by State Sen. Owen Johnson (R-West Babylon), a veteran who had decided to retire. Facing them was Suffolk Legis. Rick Montano (D-Central Islip), a fiery former federal prosecutor, whose own home lay just outside the redrawn 4th Senate District. In fact, Montano’s legislative base was almost entirely excluded by the new lines. Not so for Boyle, who got the benefit of having the Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) wielding the pen that made the borders final. Skelos was counting on keeping this seat in the Republican column in 8

order to retain his slim majority in Albany. Little did Skelos know that his hold would soon be in doubt— but not from the South Shore. Here in Babylon, with the polls still hours from closing at 9 o’clock and plenty of daylight still left in the campaign, DeLuca exuded confidence. His candidate was out, knocking on doors, helping with the neighborhood relief effort, keeping the heat on. He was waiting for volunteers to get off work and come in for their last assignments. Like so much of Long Island, this district had been hit hard. In SD4 alone, an estimated 25,000 people

were exercising their right, despite power outages, long lines at the gas pumps and, in too many cases, ruined homes and devastated lives. Of course, the big draw was the race at the top of the ticket for the White House. Democrats in Nassau and Suffolk were counting on President Barack Obama’s supporters to pull their “down ballot” candidates to victory. Republicans hoped to lessen that effect although they knew that the prospect of Gov. Mitt Romney carrying New York was unlikely, given the Democrats’ superior numbers in the city. Romney needed to dominate the suburbs decisively but fell short.

non-profit advocacy group touting high-tech projects. In the Assembly, status quo was the norm essentially, with newcomer Michaelle Solages, a Democrat, picking up the 22nd A.D in Nassau, and Andrew Garbarino, a Republican, winning the 7th AD in Suffolk. At the ballroom of the Islandia Marriott after the polls closed, the crowd of anxious Democrats roared their approval when the TV networks projected Obama the winner of his contest. The pandemonium was deafening, and for many seconds, drowned out any chance of conversing about the less stellar fates of the local candidates who had not fared as well as the president. One of those candidates was Montano. —CHRIS DELUCA, CAMPAIGN MANAGER FOR ASSEM.

were well served. On the airwaves, however, it’s questionable who was served when some $3 million was spent just on Altschuler’s behalf by Karl Rove’s SuperPAC, Crossroads GPS. An observer inundated by the negative advertising would not believe that these two men could stand side by side on a stage like gentlemen when such horrible things were being said about each other on television and the radio. “In the beginning, when I ran the first time,” Altschuler says, “I really couldn’t reconcile it, and I thought it was bizarre. But after a while…it’s the reality of politics.” And, he added, “it’s disgusting.” The trouble, of course, is that campaigns, especially at the Congressional level, don’t come cheap. “I think you spend a ridiculous amount of time raising money, and it’s totally inefficient,” says Altschuler, an innovative entrepreneur who co-founded Cloud Blue, a company based in Georgia that recycles computer equipment. “You’ve only got a two-year term, and you’re spending 50 percent of your time raising money—you’re not doing your job!” But Altschuler didn’t run on a promise to reform campaign spending, and Bishop, who railed about the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, which basically opened the floodgate to SuperPAC funds, worried about the corrosive effect of big money on our democracy, but had no answer for it. Bishop won the rematch by more than 11,000 votes. As he told the enthusiastic throng at the Islandia Marriott, he felt great facing them news

knowing that “I’ve got a four-figure margin instead of a three-figure margin!” Schaffer surmised that Altschuler lost the race because he was “a damaged candidate,” in particular because of Democratic opponents claims that he’d made his fortune as an “outsourcer” at PaperTiger, his previous company, always stuck in the minds of the Suffolk voters. And despite Bishop being outspent by the SuperPACs, the issue boiled down to trust. “Who did they trust? Clearly they trusted Tim Bishop,” Schaffer says. Altschuler finally conceded the election around midnight—an hour before Romney conceded. When Bishop spoke to the crowd at the ballroom, he said, “My opponent may have had the guys with the big checks, but I had the guys with the big hearts—and big hearts win every time.” The audience roared their approval. Then he took another swipe at the opposition, “a lot of people and a lot of institutions who bet against me—they know who they are—but they didn’t really bet against me,” Bishop said. “They bet against all of you.” What’s more, he said, his opponents bet against the “essential sense of goodness and fairness of this district…and the ability to separate truth from the lies.” And basically, when all is said and done, that is the voters’ job.

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

Sour Grapes “Politicians are like diapers; they need to be changed often and for the same reason.”— Mark Twain I’m writing this column one day before the election. By the time you read it, the results will be in. I’m sure that Barack Obama will win the electoral vote and I’m pretty sure that Mitt Romney will win the popular vote. More Americans will vote for Mitt Romney than for Barack Obama but in the end Barack Obama, with the electoral vote, will be President again. Did I hear someone say “God help us?” That said, Obama ran a brilliant campaign. His record was dismal. We had and will continue to have high unemployment… more Americans living on food stamps… more families earning less than they were four years ago… He forced ObamaCare down our throats against the wishes of the majority of Americans. His “Al Qaeda is dead” was

his version of Bush’s “Mission accomplished.” Benghazi proved how wrong he was. Yet his administration, with the help of the press, covered up his cover-up with a fable that four people were killed as a result of a movie. So how did he win? He successfully demonized Mitt Romney, a good man who would have been a great President. The press went along with it. They spent weeks talking about Romney’s treatment of the family dog… his career at Bain… Big Bird… the bull crap about the “War against women.” The press concentrated on everything but Obama’s dismal record and the fact that after four years he has no plan for the future other than taxing the wealthy for their “fair” share. Obama relied on many smart Democrats to drink the Kool-Aid. If you’re a Democrat you saw the real Romney and the real Obama in the first debate. If ever there was a time to cross party lines it was during this election. Am I disappointed? Half the nation is disappointed. But let’s look

at it in the proper perspective. It’s an election. We lost. It’s not the end of the world. Compare it with those poor people who lost their homes and their lives to Hurricane Sandy. The woman whose two small children slipped out of her hands and were lost forever in the middle of a deadly wind. The old woman on Staten Island sifting through mud where her house once stood, looking for and retrieving her wedding picture from years ago. The only possession she has left in the world. There are so many sad stories. This is what is truly important in our world. By comparison, this election is just another blip in history. The other day, while driving out to the Hamptons, I listened to my first book on tape. It was “Truman,” about the life of Harry Truman, by David McCullough. It was great. Truman never went to college. He was just another Senator who was chosen by Roosevelt to be his Vice President. Then Roosevelt died suddenly. Truman was in office a few days when he made the decision to drop the atomic bomb on Japan to save the lives of many American soldiers.

He led the nation to prosperity when everyone thought we were headed for a post-war recession. He saved a starving Europe with The Marshall Plan. He stopped the spread of Communism with The Truman Doctrine. He recognized Israel and became that nation’s greatest friend. As I drove, I contrasted Harry Truman with Barack Obama. When Truman came into office, hardly anyone thought he was up for the job. This was a small, nondescript man with thick glasses, a terrible flat voice and probably, of all the Presidents before and since, the worst public speaker in the nation’s history. Barack Obama, on the other hand, came into office with the whole world cheering him on. He promised us hope and change. He’s handsome… dynamic… has a great speaking voice and is a wonderful speaker. When the smoke cleared, it was obvious to me and should be to you that Truman was a great President and Barack Obama is a dud. He’s our President for the next four years and did I hear someone say “God help us?” Oh yes, I did. It was me.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT A QUICK MESSAGE FROM YOUR FRIENDS IN THE BUSINESS www.alure.com Dear Fellow Long Islanders, Hopefully, you and your loved ones have safely weathered Hurricane Sandy. Unfortunately, Long Island did get hit pretty hard and many homes suffered significant damages, with most homeowners still without power. Over the next several weeks, as we experienced after Hurricane Irene last year, Long Island will undoubtedly see a number of “storm chasing” companies from around the country, make their way to Long Island, where they will set up shop, and look to generate some quick business. Some, while not all, will take advantage of homeowner’s desperation and will prey on those most vulnerable. I just wanted to take this opportunity to advise everyone to be careful when selecting a company for any such repairs to damage you may have experienced to your home. Many of these companies will be in and out, and in some cases, may not be around or accessible 3 months down the road in the event service is needed. Whoever you choose to work on your home, whether it be Alure or one of the many other reputable contractors on Long Island, please make sure to do your due diligence. We encourage you to think KIOLI (Keep It On Long Island), but more importantly, we encourage you to be careful, and select a company that you can count on to be there for you when you need it, whether 2 months or 2 years down the road, and preferably, one that has an established presence on Long Island, and whose references you can check out. We have posted some tips and resources on our Alure blog and invite you view them or contact us for any help or advice in this challenging time. Additionally, we’ll have emergency phone coverage in the event you need us. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us for any of your needs, or for advice, whether for you, your neighbors, family and more.

Use extreme caution 2. Use common sense when handling broken glass, sharp metal, splintered wood and even for removal of wet materials from basements. Use gloves and other protective clothing whenever possible. 3. Use caution when inspecting broken limbs hanging from trees and or areas of a home or building damaged by a storm. Unless inspected for structural integrity, “WHEN IN DOUBT, STAY OUT”.

Cover Story

Long Island Endures Residents Struggle to Recover By The Long Island Press News Staff

Editor’s Note: The numbers are staggering. The reality is heartbreaking. Nearly 200 people throughout the Caribbean and Northeast are dead due to the destructive superstorm that was Hurricane Sandy, and the death toll for related tragedies continues to climb. More than 8.5 million homes and businesses lost power across the East Coast due to Sandy’s wrath— including more than 1 million Long Island Power Authority customers. As of the publication of this week’s issue—in which the Press’ staff twice had to evacuate and relocate to complete; for Sandy and the Nor’easter Nov. 7—there remains nearly 200,000 LIPA customers across Nassau and Suffolk still in the dark, excluding the hardest hit areas of Long Beach, Fire Island and the Rockaways. There are countless stories of misery and destruction, sadness and hope that have yet to be told about the lives forever altered due to Sandy’s catastrophic wrath. We at the Press have been dong our best to bring you the most pertinent and useful information, along with up-to-theminute resources to help you get through it all, via our website www.LongIslandPress.com and Facebook profile www.Facebook.com/LongIslandPress. We will continue to do so. Here are but a few more tales of endurance:

Lance Walker

stands on his front lawn alongside the contents of his Lindenhurst home and weeps. The ocean, he says, rose several feet high, inundating his house, engulfing his car and swallowing his entire neighborhood. Lashing winds whipped ferociously atop the sea, conjuring a wall of water that slammed his shoreline community with the speed of a freight train, uprooting trees, shredding power lines, pummeling homes and businesses and turning boats into missiles that hit structures with the terrific force of floating wrecking balls. Tears roll down the 48-year-old’s face like empty thunder as he recalls the horrors of being trapped with his wife and four children in their modest ranch as the heavens decimated everything they and their neighbors have ever known. His oldest daughter Ashley wraps her arms around him between gasps. “After the wind blew the back doors open, the water came in and it was sort of like whitecaps,” he tells the Press. “It was sort of like a little tidal wave. “It came in and it went out,” he says with a laugh, as if in disbelief. “It did its damage and it left and that was it.” “We grabbed all we could, but all of our pictures

The water-logged contents of Lance Walker’s home lie in heaps along Shore Road in Lindenhurst. The father of four says his insurance company AllState will not even return his phone calls.

The roof of a home decapitated by Hurricane Sandy sits among the wreckage that now defines Venetian Boulevard in Lindenhurst, a onceidyllic waterfront neighborhood on the South Shore.

update: “To say that I am angry, to say that I am frustrated, disappointed, would be the understatement of the decade.” Desperation has set in. Regarding the lack of power, residents in Farmingdale, for instance, besieged their village hall when LIPA only restored half their apartment complex. Regarding the gas squeeze, people have now resorted to lugging whatever container, water jug, bucket or bottle they can find to fill up. Such is the case at nearly every gas station that offers a walk-up. Haim Benbenichti, of Westbury, sat in his car along Old Country Road in Hicksville just before midnight Nov. 2 outside a Hess gas station where hundreds of people converged the night before seeking gas, both by car and by foot. The 62-year-old had been waiting in line since 11 a.m., he said, and would be there, he said, “Until they’re going to come.” A partially eaten pan of French fries sat beside him, which he had delivered to his car from a nearby pizzeria. The plummeting temperatures, which have been hovering in the low 30s and upper 20s throughout the past week, were on his mind. “It’s getting cold and it’s going to be colder,” he said. Besides fuel, however, one source of warmth for the countless who have been rendered homeless by the storm has been delivered through the caring hearts of others. Complete strangers. Fellow Long Islanders. To witness some of the truly random acts of pure kindness in such ravaged tragedy has brought more than one Press reporter to tears themselves.

Ray “The Plumber” and Melissa Suter organized a BBQ in Lindenhurst’s Shore Road Park Nov. 4.

Entenmann’s Bakery donated piles of freshly baked goods for Lindenhurst residents at the Nov. 4 drive.

COME TOGETHER

At the park around the corner from Walker’s gutted home, smoke billows through the chilly afternoon air. There are high-pitched squeals. Shouting. The scene is not one of disaster, however, but rather recovery, life. There are congregants from a local church. There are members of volunteer fire departments, the Bethpage Water District. There are people from all ages and stages of life. And they have come here to pitch in. Ray “The Plumber,” who runs an East Islip business of the same name but who refused to be interviewed for this story because he wasn’t interested in the publicity, delivered 1,000 hotdogs and 1,000 hamburgers, among other foodstuffs via his fleet of trucks, and for the first time in awhile for many, these residents are eating hot food. An army of volunteers work the grill, tell stories and do what they can to conjure a smile. Island Harvest parks its truck in front of the park and delivers free meals. There’s a pile of boxes filled with non-perishables.

Volunteers grilled hotdogs and hamburgers donated by Ray “The Plumber,” serving hot food to hundreds of hungry residents still suffering from Hurricane Sandy’s wrath.

Entenmann’s Bakery has stocked a table off the sidewalk with unopened, freshly baked goods. There’s a pile of clothing that other Long Islanders have donated. Down the block, away from the hubbub, Dyana and Tom Grix of North Babylon walk door-to-door handing out McDonald’s hamburgers and water. The day before, they drove around with their 8-year-old son Kevin and a 60-cup urn’s worth of steaming coffee, delivering hot java to lips starved for warmth. After several prods from a Press reporter for an answer as to why they’ve been out there, walking up to strangers, spending their own gas and money during a time when both are so scarce, the couple finally relented. “Seeing the news and seeing local families close to us have nothing,” said Tom, 40. “Pictures on the news don’t really tell you the story. You don’t get the feeling that you get when you’re down there.” “There aren’t any words to describe it,” says Dyana, 39. “We made friends down there, so out of all this misery, some good came out of it,” Tom adds. New friends, such as Lance Walker. “We got good people, like these people bringing us coffee in the morning, which is really great, cause it’s cold in there,” he smiles. “And now you’ve got all these people handing out food, dry clothes. “The first day, it seemed like it was never going to end,” he continues. “And now, everyday it does seem like there is an end to it. “[But] I don’t know where it is.” The Press News Staff consists of: Lindsay Christ, Timothy Bolger, Rashed Mian, Spencer Rumsey and Christopher Twarowski

Program This Week: Best Public Service Story – First Place Race Relations

this does not mean that race is no longer

More than 50 percent of Bellport

That race is an issue in Bellport High School is not something that can be debated. Due to an extremely diverse community, the high school has always been a very mixed setting. For many years, especially during the racial riots of 1972-73, tensions between students of different races were incredibly high. Often, full-scale fights that involved the police occurred, and school was in no way a safe place to learn. It was only through the hard work of enterprising students and teachers that the school was brought closer together and the racial divides somewhat bridged. In recent times, racial tensions have been much more subdued. However.,

an editorial about race that prompted an incendiary response from all sides of the issue, and set the school afire. With the threat of rioting, violence, and total disorder in the school, three teachers (Ms. Hoffman, Mr. Budris, and Mr. White) led the charge to fix race relations by creating a forum for student discussion. An assembly led by a multiracial panel of students was held in the auditorium, which many students attended. After more than an hour of discussion, students left satisfied, enlightened and relieved. Underlying issues that had been simmering just below the surface had finally been addressed in an open forum and, when they where, the school healed.

pretend to ignore. Rather than treating race as the elephant in the room— always ignored and tuned out to avoid uncomfortable situations—we should discuss it, like the important topic of contention it is. By confronting the issue at hand, we change the most important problem we have regarding race: a lack of dialogue. Dialogue may seem a simple facet of the problem to focus on, but it is truly the crux of the matter. No one doubts that individual students can and do bridge the racial divide every day. However, this does not happen with all students simply because

an issue. High School’s population is made up of By Daniel Garisto In 2005, The Clipper published “minorities.” Race is not an issue we can The Clipper, Bellport High School

there is a gap, one that we cannot afford to brush over and disregard. There are serious issues under that bridge. The water under the bridge is not full of sharks, but socio-economic discrepancies, cultural differences, and other factors that must be addressed. Taking a plunge into those deep and serious issues is not something that will be easy, or an endeavor that should be taken blindly. Establishing a forum where there can be an honest and respectful conversation will not be painless. But it can be done, and is done in thousands of schools across the nation. We, too, can take this step forward and bring race to the table. It is 2012. That does not mean race is gone, but it does mean that we can and should discuss it frankly and openly to learn and grow.

Seven Questions With

Daniel Craig

To hear Daniel Craig mull his latest turn as James Bond in Skyfall, it wasn’t just about facing off against all those enemies of the super-spy. Craig had lots to say as well during this conversation, about doing battle with all sorts of his own inner demons, and hopefully managing to come out on top anyway. 1. Daniel, there are hints that Bond may have had a sexual relationship with another man. Is Bond bluffing? What are you gonna do!I don’t see the world in sexual divisions. It’s not the way I look at the world. But is he gay? I think he would fuck anything! But it was a great flirt with Javier. It’s a game of cards. And a way to have your pleasure. And what’s great about Javier, is that he plays it for real. You know, he plays it to the limit. But I love that scene. It makes me laugh. I hope it makes you laugh! 2. I heard you initially turned down this role. So, what made you change your mind? Money! I think I was just a little bewildered that they would even come to me. It wasn’t even on my radar. And I suppose I was concerned about being typecast. But you know, when you weigh it up, it’s not a bad thing to be typecast as James Bond! So yeah, I changed my mind! 3. Talk about getting buff for Skyfall. Um, I’m not a fighter! I mean, I pretend to be one. It’s called bullshit boxing! But we try to make it look good. And you just try to stay on your feet most of the time. And then we’ll say, this fist looks good going into that fist! So it’s just constantly a lot of work, and a lot of skilled people. But I had to do a lot of running in this movie. Which I hate! So I did a lot of sprinting and running. Because...Bond doesn’t usually walk through a room! 4. Were you disappointed that you didn’t get to play with more

gadgets this time around? No! But it’s an interesting point, because people talk about gadgets all the time. But if you look at the original gadgets, what was sexy about them, was that Bond took out a box, stuck it on a door, and pressed a button. And then a red light came on. And that’s kind of sexy. It did something. But to have Bond on a computer, looking at a screen, I think is fucking boring! And I think technology on the whole is boring. 5. How about the sequences with the water, did you ever panic? When I was underwater? No. Actually, the great thing about doing those underwater scenes, is that you can’t see it, but we’ve got safety divers off camera. And they have oxygen tanks. But actually, it’s my favorite bit. Because nobody can find you. I spend most of my time under the water, and there’s a huge tank at the bottom at Pinewood. And I just sink to the bottom, put the respirator in, and hide! And it’s so great, that sometimes I actually fall asleep. You can get some great sleep down there! So it’s wonderful being under the water, because I love scuba diving. But then you hear a voice saying, ‘Where’s Daniel!’ 6. This is the first time we see Bond cry on screen. What was it like getting to that emotional place? Crying? I don’t cry! That’s sweat! It’s on the page! And what do I think about while I’m doing that? I think about what I’m having for lunch! That’s what I think about. 7. Talk about the secrecy surrounding the movie. Just a point about that. Somebody gave a really good speech just before the screening in London, which was that you get a chance to see the movie before anybody else does, and without knowing what will happen. You get that privilege. And what was said was that... give your readers a chance as well. And that was what we felt so passionate about. P r e s s P l ay
