Community Celebrates Milestone as Lindenwood Circle Rotation Garden is Unveiled

Councilman Ulrich called the intersection “once a desolate, barren eyesore in our community.”

Poor visibility and the confusing , labyrinthine configuration of the now-defunct traffic triangle at the intersection have sparked accidents and myriad near-misses for many years.

By Michael V. Cusenza Community leaders, elected officials, Queens Botanical Garden officials, the Howard Beach Lindenwood Civic, Community Board 10, the City Department of Transportation, and artists from Combo Colab on Monday marked the opening of a new public art installation at Lindenwood Circle. The public art installation incorporates colorful seasonal plantings to beautify and improve the traffic circle at the intersection of 153rd Avenue and 88th Street in the Lindenwood neighborhood of Howard Beach. This project was created by Queens Botanical Garden and the artist team Combo Colab in partnership with the NYC Department of Transportation, Ulrich’s Office, and the civic. The councilman noted that his Office initiated the project by securing $38,500 in council discretionary funding for the Queens Botanical Garden. The installation will remain in the traffic circle for 364 days.  Rotation Garden creates a focal point where art and plantings are woven together to be contemplated from every angle. The installation encourages discovery from afar and a new landscape emerges from within the circle, a structure of wonder, a counterpart to the existing towering trees wrapping the roundabout. Rotation Garden references the dynamism of the Lindenwood traffic circle. The basin shaped structure is created by

radially arranged metal stock tanks as planting beds retrofitted with slanted wooden stakes to create a dynamic dialogue between the passerby and the structure. Plantings with popping colors flood the base ring and accentuate the movement. Rhythms of painted surfaces on the wood sync with the planting palette and add a kinetic layer enhancing the interaction with the pedestrian and vehicular traffic alike. Poor visibility and the confusing, labyrinthine configuration of the now-defunct traffic triangle at the intersection have sparked accidents and myriad near-misses for many years. In the winter, the unusual positions of the crosswalks at the intersection used to prevent City Sanitation Department plows from properly clearing paths for pedestrians. On Monday, Ulrich took the occasion to mark the memory of his friend and budget director Matthew Pecorino, who sadly passed away on June 30. “This was one of the last projects Matt worked on in my office,” Ulrich  explained. “He worked very hard on making sure this particular item got into the New York City budget, so I’m glad to remember him today.” Howard Beach Lindenwood Civic President Joann Ariola, who spearheaded the community’s involvement in the transformation of the Circle, added, “The Civic is pleased to be part of the team who brought a pop-up floral art piece that provides both safety and beauty to our Lindenwood Roundabout.”

In addition to the new art installation, benefits of the revolutionized Lindenwood Circle include: new shorter crossings clarify pedestrian paths and expand the pedestrian network; calms traffic on all approaches to intersection; reduces speeding by narrowing travel lanes with painted parking lanes and flush medians; large, painted pedestrian area provides a new public space to the community.

Eight Indicted in Check/Money Order Scheme

Your problems are our job. Let us begin helping you with a free consultation.

Between late 2018 and early 2019, the DA’s Office and the NYPD received a number of complaints from residents who had been victimized in mail fishing schemes.

By Forum Staff Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz, joined by the United States Postal Inspector in Charge Philip R. Barnett, recently announced that Davonte Sconiers, Allejo Walters and six other individuals have been charged in seven different indictments by a Queens County grand jury after an 18-month-long investigation. The defendants have been arraigned in Supreme Court on grand larceny charges and other crimes. The defendants, in separate incidents, allegedly cashed forged and - in some instances - stolen checks from Queens County residents. The checks were deposited at multiple financial institutions throughout the borough and in other jurisdictions between 2018 and 2019. District Attorney Katz said, “These cases illustrate how important it is to contact law enforcement when you believe you have been the victim of a phishing scam. This investigation began after my Office and the NYPD received numerous complaints from the public. The defendants in these cases allegedly embraced mail phishing and check forgery as money-making enterprises. One of the defendants allegedly acquired real checks that had been mailed, then changed the payees and money figures and obtained the checking account number of real victims to cash forged checks. These fraudulent deposits totaled tens of thousands of dollars. Caught and in custody, all eight defendants face serious charges.” Inspector in Charge Bartlett said, “These defendants colluded to steal from the U.S. Mail, then used the stolen information to rob customers of their financial DNA. Identifying and arresting these individuals is the mission of the Postal Inspection Service, maintaining the safety of an

American tradition and its customers.” Walters, 24, was arraigned last week on an indictment before Queens Supreme Court Justice Stephanie Zaro. Walters is charged in separate schemes from the co-defendants with grand larceny in the third degree, and other related crimes. Defendant Sconiers, 25, who is also charged separately, was arraigned on July 1, 2021, before Justice Zaro on two of the seven indictments. According to the charges, between late 2018 and early 2019, the DA’s Office and the City Police Department received a number of complaints from residents who had been victimized in mail fishing schemes. A joint investigation with the NYPD and the United States Postal Inspection Service commenced, which included Court-authorized search warrants for mobile phones, social media accounts, and residential searches. The cell phones allegedly contained numerous images of checks, bank deposit receipts and text messages between various defendants discussing bank account limits, PIN numbers and security questions. DA Katz said, defendant Sconiers allegedly made deposits of fraudulent checks totaling well over $20,000. Following a Court-authorized search of this defendant’s home, law enforcement allegedly recovered a bank debit card that was linked to a bank that had received numerous deposits of stolen and forged United States Postal Service money orders. That same search led law enforcement to recover Sconier’s phones and following a Court-authorized search of those phones, defendant Sconiers and two others were separately indicted on grand larceny and conspiracy charges following the alleged discovery of additional stolen and forged checks.

Addabbo: Celebrate National Night Out, Help Create Stronger Bonds between Cops and Community By State Sen. Joe Addabbo, Jr. National Night Out Against Crime is upon us once again on Tuesday, Aug. 3, and what an amazing event it is. This annual national community-building event helps promote a healthy police-community partnership throughout the country in order to help make our neighborhoods safer and better places to live for everyone. The first annual National Night Out was created in 1984 and 2.5 million neighbors across 400 communities in 23 states came out to celebrate. Since that time, neighborhoods began to host big parties and cookouts for National Night Out as a way to bring the police and communities together in a fun-filled setting. In our little corner of the country, we have amazing celebrations with food, fun, music and games for everyone to enjoy at many of our local parks and playgrounds. While these parties and festivities are great, the connections that we foster between the communities and their police departments are the real reason to celebrate. When we have a strong bond between the police officers and the people they are sworn to protect, we are safer as a community. The partnership between the community and the police allow these officers to be more familiar with their sectors, get to know the residents better and learn the is-

“There is no question that the pandemic, which fueled a national drug abuse crisis, also hit us hard here in our borough,” DA Katz.

sues that affect them. In recent years, the connection between the police and communities across the country has been strained to say the least. We are at a crossroads right now when it comes to police-community relationships, and I believe an event like National Night Out is the perfect way to bring us all together again.

With the introduction of Neighborhood Coordination Officers, the Police Department is working towards a more inclusive way to patrol neighborhoods. The NCOs are two officers dedicated to a specific community so they get to know the neighbors and issues of that community. NCOs, working within their local precincts, help to address neighborhood issues, such as

noise complaints, abandoned cars, afterhour park activity and other quality-of-life matters that negatively affect our area. When the police and community work together, we can see amazing results. I am proud of the officers and neighborhoods throughout my district for working in conjunction to eliminate crime. Our precincts have dedicated representatives at the community board and local association meetings, as well as their own monthly precinct council meetings, to update everyone on the crime stats and to gather information on issues that are facing our residents. It is this type of engagement that keeps these bonds strong and communities safer, and it is this type of cooperative community effort that is really needed right now. I hope to see many of you on National Night Out as I try to visit each event in my district. For more information about the NNO event near you, call my office at (718) 738-1111. Addabbo has represented the 15th Senatorial District—Broad Channel, Elmhurst, Forest Hills, Glendale, Hamilton Beach, Howard Beach, Kew Gardens, Kew Gardens Hills, Maspeth, Middle Village, Ozone Park, Rego Park, Richmond Hill, Ridgewood, South Ozone Park, Woodhaven, Woodside, most of the Rockaways—since 2009.

On July 11, on the corner of Parsons Boulevard and 72nd Avenue, Bell is accused of slapping a 63-year-old Asian woman in the face and removing the victims’ mask.

By Michael V. Cusenza A Fresh Meadows woman has been charged in four separate attacks on people of Asian descent in Flushing over the past three months, Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz announced Saturday. Maricia Bell, 25, has been arraigned on a complaint charging her with robbery in the second and third degree as a hate crime, assault in the second and third degree as a hate crime, grand larceny in the fourth degree as a hate crime, petit larceny as a hate crime, aggravated harassment in the second degree, and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree. Bell was ordered to return to court on Aug. 16. According to the charges, at approximately 8:55 a.m. on May 23, inside the parking lot of 71-43 Kissena Blvd., Bell is observed on video surveillance approach the 24-year-old victim, punching him in the face, removing his glasses and then fleeing. On June 16, the defendant was inside a bodega located at 70-63 Parsons Blvd. around 6:14 p.m. when she allegedly struck an Asian woman in the back of her head. On July 11 around 8 p.m., on the corner of Parsons Boulevard and 72nd Avenue, Bell is ac-

cused of slapping a 63-year-old Asian woman in the face and removing the victims’ mask. Just this past Wednesday, July 21, according to the charges, Bell was on 71st Avenue and Parsons Boulevard, at approximately 7:30 a.m., when she allegedly attacked a 75-year-old woman. The victim was struck in the head with a hammer causing a laceration and bleeding. “I am deeply disturbed by the rise in hate crimes against Asian New Yorkers — especially in the communities I represent. No one should ever have to walk in fear of of their lives because of their race, religion, or sexual orientation. These shocking and disturbing acts of violence against  Asians  will not be tolerated. Thankfully, Bell is being held without bail and is facing a hefty sentence in prison, where I hope she will be for a long time,” City Councilman Jim Gennaro (D-Hillcrest) said. “I vow to continue working with the 107th Precinct to increase police presence in my council district, and to continue partnering with DA Katz to ensure anyone who commits such a despicable crime is prosecuted to the fullest  extent of the law.” If convicted, Bell faces up to 25 years in prison.

Pol Meets with Con Ed on Storm-Hardening Infrastructure Improvements across District

File Photo

“My constituents should not have to worry that their power will go out every time there is a storm,” Sen. Addabbo said. “Our electrical grid should be able to handle these storms and provide power to customers when they need it the most.”

By Forum Staff Last month, State Sen. Joe Addabbo, Jr. (D-Howard Beach) held a virtual meeting with Con Edison representatives to address recent power outages in areas throughout his district, especially in communities like Howard Beach, Ozone Park, and Middle Village. According to Con Ed’s numbers, Howard Beach suffered outages on April 21 and April 30 that left 600 customers without power each time, and again on May 1, during which 200 customers lost power. Ozone Park had an outage on May 9 that affected 1,400 customers, while Middle Village has seen 19 outages since 2012 that interrupted service for nearly 9,000 customers.

Issues including transformer fires, blown fuses, defective underground cables, and downed trees have caused these outages, utility officials explained. Although there have been issues, Con Ed informed Addabbo of the work they have done in the past, as well as their current and future plans to ensure that customers do not lose power. In the Howard Beach and Ozone Park areas, Con Ed has already invested $2 million in upgrades to feeder conductors, transformers, and underground cables, while also installing storm-hardened fuses and switches. In preparation for summer 2021, Con Ed told Addabbo  that they have invested an additional $150,000 for feeder conductor and transform-

Flushing Meadows-Corona Park

By Michael V. Cusenza After three days on the lam following a hit-and-run accident earlier this month in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park that left a 4-year-old boy in critical condition, a Jamaica man was recently apprehended by authorities and charged with hitting the child with the motorized scooter he was riding and subsequently fleeing the scene, Queens

District Attorney Melinda Katz announced Thursday. Argenis Rivas, 29, was arraigned this week on a complaint charging him with assault in the second degree, leaving the scene of an incident, endangering the welfare of a child, reckless driving and driving without a license. According to the charges, around 5:45 pm on Sunday, July 18, Rivas was riding the scooter in the Meadow Lake Boat Rental parking lot within Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. According to the complaint, Rivas was allegedly operating the vehicle at a high rate of speed in the crowded parking lot when he struck the little boy, who fell to the ground, appeared to be unconscious and was bleeding from the head. The child sustained severe injuries and remains in critical condition at a nearby hospital. Katz said Rivas rode away from the scene and failed to stop to offer any aid to the child or to report the incident. Rivas was eventually taken into custody on July 21. If convicted, he faces up to seven years in prison.

er upgrades, and have created Summer Preparation Training and Heat Drills for employees. When it comes to the Middle Village area, Con Ed informed Addabbo that an area from 75th Place to 77th Street between Furmanville Avenue and 66th Road will be part of an Undergrounding Pilot Program. This program aims to remove three overhead transformers, 11 spans of overhead primary wires, and 28 spans of overhead secondary wires. This initiative would bring the power for 152 customers underground, alleviating issues with the high tree density on

Juniper Valley Road that has caused outages in the past. “I understand that bad storms have the ability to cause power outages, and with climate change severe storms are becoming more powerful, but the frequency and duration of these outages are unacceptable,” Addabbo said. “My constituents should not have to worry that their power will go out every time there is a storm. Our electrical grid should be able to handle these storms and provide power to customers when they need it the most.”

Cohancy Overpass Set for Paint Job

the issue for years. “We’d like to thank our Council Member Eric Ulrich as well as the community residents who called 311 to report this unsafe condition,” civic members wrote on Facebook. “Together, we will always get the job done!” Photo Courtesy of Howard Beach Lindenwood Civic


The Hidden Benefits Of Water Dehydration is a dangerous condition that can cause a host of complications and even prove fatal in severe cases. But as dangerous as dehydration can be, many cases are entirely preventable. The best way to prevent dehydration is to drink enough water. When the body does not take in as much water as it puts out, it can become dehydrated. People who live in warm climates or in elevated altitudes may lose more water than those who do not. In addition, water loss is accelerated during strenuous exercise, highlighting the emphasis men and women must place on drinking enough water during their workouts. But water does more for the body than prevent dehydration. The following are a handful of lesser known ways that water benefits the body. • Water can help people maintain healthy weights. Dieting fads come and go, but water is a mainstay for people who want to control their caloric intake in an effort to maintain healthy weights. Water has zero calories, so reaching for a bottle or glass of water instead of a soda, lemonade or another caloric beverage can help people keep the pounds off. A study from researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center found that even diet soda enhances weight gain by as much as 41 percent. In addition, soda has been linked to conditions such as obesity, diabetes and tooth decay. No such association exists with water. • Water helps to fight fatigue. The fatiguefighting properties of water are another of its

lesser known benefits. When the body is not adequately hydrated, it can experience muscle soreness. And fitness enthusiasts who do not drink enough water may notice their bodies require extensive recovery time after working out. Each of those consequences can be prevented by drinking enough water, and doing so can even improve performance, as studies have shown that just a 3 percent loss of body weight due to dehydration can cause as much as a 10 percent drop in performance level. • Water can improve the appearance of the skin. Skin that does not get enough water

can turn dry and flaky and feel tight. In addition, dry skin is more likely to wrinkle than adequately hydrated skin. Getting water to the skin can be tricky, as the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health notes that water will reach all the other organs of the body before it reaches the skin. But the school recommends applying a hydrating moisturizer within two minutes of leaving the bath or shower and drinking at least eight glasses of water a day to ensure the skin is getting enough water. • Water helps the gastrointestinal tract.

Water can help maintain normal bowel function. When the body lacks sufficient fluid, the colon will pull water from stools in an effort to stay hydrated. That can lead to constipation, a condition in which people experience difficulty emptying their bowels. By drinking enough water, people can ensure their colon will not have to pull water from stools to stay hydrated, thereby helping them stay regular. Water helps the body in myriad ways, many of which might surprise people unaware of just how valuable water can be to the body.

Fresh Meadows Man indicted in Attempted Kidnapping of 5-Year-Old Boy

McGonagle allegedly can be seen on this security footage carrying the boy toward his car.

By Forum Staff A Fresh Meadows man has been indicted by a borough grand jury for allegedly grabbing a 5-year-old boy off the sidewalk as he walked with his family earlier this month, Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz announced Friday. James McGonagle, 24, was arraigned Friday afternoon on a two-count indictment charging him with attempted kidnapping in the second degree and endangering

the welfare of a child. He was ordered to return to court on Sept. 8. According to the charges, at approximately 8 p.m. on July 17, in front of 117-07 Hillside Ave., the defendant was observed on video surveillance exit a red vehicle that had been parked on the street. The defendant allegedly charged at the 5-year-old victim, picked him up and tossed him into the back seat of the red car. The victim’s mother ran to the vehicle, reached inside the opened rear window, grabbed her son

and attempted to pull him out of the car. McGonagle allegedly clutched the child’s legs from the opposite side of the car and attempted to pull him back into the vehicle. During the struggle, a man who had been seated in the vehicle was overheard asking McGonagle, “What are you doing?” The defendant allegedly responded, “We are taking the kid.” The boy’s mother was able to pull her son through the window and out of the car. Seconds later, the defendant sped off.

McGonagle was apprehended on July 16, at approximately 12:26 a.m., after being observed by police officers inside a Brooklyn hospital being treated for facial injuries. “This is a parent’s worst fear. This mother fought to save her son. Never underestimate the strength of a mom,” said Katz, a mother of two young boys. “Thankfully he has been apprehended and will face justice.” If convicted, McGonagle faces up to 15 years in prison.

Nine Charged with Conspiring to Act as Illegal Agents of China By Forum Staff A superseding indictment was filed Thursday in federal court in Brooklyn charging nine defendants—including Zhu Feng, a Flushing resident—with acting and conspiring to act in the United States as illegal agents of the People’s Republic of China without prior notification to the Attorney General, and engaging and conspiring to engage in interstate and international stalking. Two defendants, Tu Lan and Feng, 34, were also charged with obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice arising out of the same course of conduct. The defendants, allegedly acting at the direction and under the control of PRC government officials, conducted surveillance of and engaged in a campaign to harass, stalk and coerce certain residents of the United States to return to the PRC as part of a global, concerted and extralegal repatriation effort known as “Operation Fox Hunt.” In addition to the six defendants previously charged in a related criminal complaint in October 2020 and a related indictment in May 2021, the superseding indictment alleges that Tu Lan, a new defendant who was employed as a prosecutor with the Hanyang People’s Procuratorate, traveled to the United States, directed the harassment campaign and ordered a cocon-

officials Tu Lan and Hu Ji, to transport John Doe #1’s elderly father from the PRC to the United States to convey a threat to John Doe #1 that his family in the PRC would be harmed if he did not return to the

PRC. At the direction of Tu Lan, Hu Ji and others, several defendants worked to investigate, surveil and locate John Doe #1 and his wife. Tu Lan then traveled to the United States along with John Doe #1’s father and a medical doctor, Li Minjun. While in the United States, Tu Lan directed several conspirators to surveil John Doe #1 and his family so the defendants would know where to bring John Doe #1’s father to deliver the demand that John Doe #1 return to the PRC. Afterwards, Tu Lan returned to the PRC, where she continued to supervise the operation with Hu Ji and other PRC officials, directed other U.S.-based conspirators to continue stalking John Doe #1 and then ordered the return of John Doe #1’s father to the PRC after their attempts to render John Doe #1 and Jane Doe #1 were unsuccessful. Zhu Feng, Hu Ji and Zhu Yong worked with McMahon, a private investigator, to gather intelligence about and locate John Doe #1 and Jane Doe #1. To evade detection and frustrate a criminal investigation of their conduct, Tu Lan allegedly directed one of the conspirators to “delete all the chat content” between the conspirators. Subsequently, between 2017 and 2019, other defendants continued to harass and stalk the victims at the direction of the PRC government.


Thousands of NY Tenants Could be Deprived of Rent-Relief Checks if State doesn’t Move Quickly: Schumer By Forum Staff Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Sunday called on the State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance to move heaven and earth to get much-delayed federal rent relief into the pockets of people who need it before it’s too late.  Schumer  made public a formal letter to the state agency and said the more than $2 billion he secured for the state and tenants—as part of the larger COVID relief bill he pushed through the Senate—cannot be delayed any further and that the program being utilized by the State of New York to get the dollars out needs to be improved immediately to move even faster, especially as the State of New York’s eviction moratorium deadline of Aug. 31  and U.S. Treasury’s mandated date for beginning to reallocate funds at the end of September approaches. As reflected in the data released by the Department of Treasury for the month of June, New York State was one of only two states that had given out $0 in federal rent relief. Schumer is demanding swift action to reverse this deeply concerning status report. “Thousands and thousands of New York tenants could be deprived of critical rent relief checks if the state doesn’t move more

quickly on getting this money out,” Schumer said. “Today, I am formally asking ODTA to move heaven and earth to fix the mess, pick up the pace and get this federal money out the door before it’s too late for tenants and landlords. The message today is: tenant relief now. No more delay.”

Schumer lamented with tenants and state lawmakers that only a pittance of the federal funds have gone out—in light of vast public pressure. He said it is good the State is finalizing its process for disbursing dollars and some funds are trickling out, but that we will need a waterfall of funds to

avoid the looming deadlines, both related to evictions and Treasury mandates at the end of September. “How it works with federal funds is that if you don’t use them, you could potentially lose them, and that would be very bad,” Schumer  added.  “New York already sends enough money to the feds. These dollars are meant for New Yorkers. That’s why I fought so hard for them, and our tenants, in the first place.” Schumer  explained that these dollars were a hard fight at the federal level and that they were fought for so people who needed them could get the assistance they needed fast to avoid the threat of eviction or overwhelming debt piling up.  Schumer said more than 100,000 New York City residents and about 1,000 on Long Island have already applied for these funds and need the dollars flowing and that further delay could cost New York. According to a survey of rent-regulated apartments by the Community Housing Improvement Program, NYC renters owe over a billion dollars in rent. New York lags far behind other states in delivering rent relief, with Texas already having distributed 388 million to 61,100 households, according to the Associated Press.

DOJ Launches Firearms Trafficking Strike Forces to Crack Down on Crime-Gun Sources By Forum Staff The U.S. Department of Justice today launched five cross-jurisdictional strike forces to help reduce gun violence by disrupting illegal firearms trafficking in key regions across the country. Leveraging existing resources, the regional strike forces will better ensure sustained and focused coordination across jurisdictions and help stem the supply of illegally trafficked firearms from source cities, through other communities, and into five key market regions: New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area/Sacramento Region and Washington, D.C. Each strike force region will be led by designated United States Attorneys, who will collaborate with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) and with state and local law enforcement partners within their own jurisdiction (where firearms are used in crimes) as well as law enforcement partners in areas where illegally trafficked guns originate. These officials will use the latest data, evidence, and intelligence from crime scenes to identify patterns, leads, and potential suspects in violent gun crimes. According to gun trace data, the vast majority of firearms recovered in New York City originate outside the state and are illegally trafficked into New York. The

new strike force, led by Audrey Strauss, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Jacquelyn Kasulis, the Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, will help ensure sustained and focused coordination between law enforcement and prosecutors in New York City with their counterparts in locations where many of the firearms originate. “Gun violence has taken a terrible, un-

acceptable toll on our communities, and it must be stopped,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Jacquelyn M. Kasulis. “Stemming the flow of illegal guns into New York City is critical to eradicating gun violence in our city. We are committed to working with our federal and state partners to investigate and prosecute gun trafficking to the fullest extent of the law.” The strike forces represent one important, concrete step in implementing the

Department’s Comprehensive Violent Crime Reduction Strategy, which was announced on May 26, 2021. The comprehensive strategy supports local communities in preventing, investigating, and prosecuting gun violence and other violent crime—and requires U.S. Attorneys’ offices to work with federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement, as well as the communities they serve, to address the most significant drivers of violence in their districts. In guidance to federal agents and prosecutors as part of that comprehensive strategy, the Deputy Attorney General made clear that firearms traffickers providing weapons to violent offenders are an enforcement priority across the country. “All too often, guns found at crime scenes come from hundreds or even thousands of miles away. We are redoubling our efforts as ATF works with law enforcement to track the movement of illegal firearms used in violent crimes. These strike forces enable sustained coordination across multiple jurisdictions to help disrupt the worst gun trafficking corridors,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland. “The Department of Justice will use all of its tools – enforcement, prevention, intervention, and investment –to help ensure the safety of our communities – the department’s highest priority.”

Keep Your Garden Looking its Best All Summer Long

By Melinda Myers Summer means hot and often dry weather for many gardeners. Keep your garden looking its best with less water and maintenance throughout the summer. Spread a layer of organic mulch like leaves, evergreen needles or woodchips on the soil surrounding plants. This helps keep plant roots cool, conserves moisture, suppresses weeds and improves the soil as it decomposes. Use a three- to four-inch layer of coarser material like wood chips and a thinner, one-inch layer of finer materials like leaves. Pull the mulch away from the trunk of the tree, stems of shrubs, and base of flowers and vegetables. Water thoroughly to encourage deep, drought tolerant roots. Light, frequent watering promotes shallow roots, making plants more susceptible to drought and other environmental stresses. Check new plantings every day or two and water often enough to keep the root area and surrounding soil slightly moist. Gradually extend the time between watering. Most plants thrive with an inch of water each week. Let soil moisture not the calendar be your guide. Adjust your watering practices based on temperature, soil type and rainfall. Water gardens early in the day to reduce water lost to evaporation and the risk of disease. Consider using drip irrigation or soaker hoses to apply water directly to the soil where it is needed. You will conserve moisture and help reduce the risk of spreading disease with overhead watering. Check container gardens daily. Water thoroughly, until excess water exits through the drainage hole, whenever the top few inches of potting mix are dry. Succulents like to go a bit drier while moisture-loving plants prefer evenly moist soil. Continue

weeding throughout the summer. These unwanted plants compete for water and nutrients. Many are hosts for insects and disease, attracting them to the landscape and putting your garden plants at greater risk. Remove faded flowers (deadhead) to improve the plant’s appearance, encourage more flowers or prevent reseeding. Selfcleaning plants like impatiens, cuphea and calibrachoa need no deadheading to keep blooming. Columbine, Amsonia and bee balm are a few perennials that produce lots of seedlings. Deadhead these and other plants that produce more seedlings than you desire. Stop deadheading perennials in late summer or early fall to allow seed heads to form. The seed heads add winter interest and many attract songbirds to the garden. Use twigs, decorative stakes, or other supports to keep tall, floppy plants standing tall in the garden. Take time to mask functional supports so staked plants still look their best. Consider decorative stakes or convert found items into garden art that adds interest while keeping your plants upright. Don’t fret when some of your annuals stop blooming during the hotter days of summer. Lobelia, French marigolds, and sweet alyssum are a few annuals that may stop flowering (heat stall) during hot weather. Continue to water and trim back as needed. Then wait for cooler temperatures and flowers to return. Add a few hanging baskets or containers for extra color and pizzazz. Place containers and hanging baskets in lackluster garden areas like the front entrance, next to the patio or anywhere a bit of fresh color is needed. Employ a few or all of these strategies to keep your garden looking its best. You will be amazed at the big impact such small efforts can provide.
