Beloved Howard Beach Veteran Butch Puccio Dies at 99

By Michael V. Cusenza He’s been a fixture at community events—and The Forum— for decades. But it is with heavy hearts that we report that we will no longer have the honor of chronicling the life and times of Ermondo “Butch” Puccio, who died last week. The Howard Beach resident and U.S. Army veteran was 99. Puccio was born on April 15,

1921, in Queens, and at the age of 21 he enlisted as a private in the United States Army and completed his basic training at Camp Davis in North Carolina. Before being deployed to California in 1943, Puccio married his wife Jennie, and on Aug. 28, 2020, they celebrated their 77th wedding anniversary. During his years in service, Puccio spent time in New Guinea and the Philippine Islands. While

in combat, a .50 caliber machine gun fell on Puccio, injuring him. In January 1946, Puccio returned to the United States, and on Feb. 2, 1946, he was honorably discharged from the Army, reaching the rank of Staff Sergeant. Butch and Jennie desperately wanted to start a family, but doctors told them it would not happen. As a result of Butch’s war injuries and all the illnesses, they said he would

be unable to father children. But miraculously, on April 12, 1949, their son Dominic came along. “We wanted more,” Jennie said, “but we wound up with the best son anyone could ever hope for.” Last November, State Sen. Joe Addabbo, Jr. (D-Howard Beach) honored the life and sacrifices of Puccio by inducting him into the New York State Senate Veterans Hall of Fame.

“Our veterans give up so much, including time at home with their families, while some make the ultimate sacrifice and lay down their lives for our country,” Addabbo concluded. “It is a great feeling to be able to give back to our veterans, and this induction into the NYS Veterans Hall of Fame for Butch is one small way that I can help honor a great soldier, especially on Veterans Day.” Farewell, friend.

Nick ‘the Balloonatic’ Pens Children’s Book By Michael V. Cusenza The Balloonatic has halted the helium in favor of the pen. Nick Rotondo, Howard Beach’s famous “Balloonatic,” recently published his first children’s book: “I am a First Responder.” The 24-page tome, featuring illustrations

by Joan Coleman, tells the story of how Rotondo was thrust into the role of first responder on Sept. 11, 2001, when an NYPD sergeant commandeered his MTA bus. “It was just a little project,” Rotondo told The Forum on Tuesday, “I can’t believe how well it’s doing.” Asked why a book, why now, and Ro-

tondo paused for a beat before telling The Forum that legendary comedian Pat Cooper, for whom Rotondo regularly opens, has been telling him for years “You have the most amazing stories—you should write a book.” Rotondo found the time to write since many of his shows last year had to be canceled due to the pandemic “I wanted to do something kid-friendly, to show kids how to lend a hand whenever someone is in need,” Rotondo added. The response has been overwhelming,

Rotondo noted. “It’s beautiful—I’m honored,” he said. “The neighborhood has been a big supporter.” The Balloonatic has been giving back to Queens since he was a youngster himself, fashioning crazy hats, animals, and America’s favorite characters out of balloons with lightning speed. “I don’t know what it is,” Rotondo said. “I just want to do things that are going to make people happy.” Mission: Completed.


Gambino Associate Pleads Guilty to Car Arson

“With today’s guilty plea, Tuccio has been convicted of an offense arising from his efforts to extort a local businessman by brazenly chasing him through the streets and then setting his car ablaze,” Acting Brooklyn U.S. Attorney DuCharme said last week.

By Forum Staff Last week, in federal court in Brooklyn, Gambino Organized Crime Family Associate Peter Tuccio, 27, pleaded guilty to using fire to commit the felony crime of extortion, according to federal prosecutors. When sentenced, Tuccio faces a mandatory sentence of 10 years’ imprisonment, as well as forfeiture, restitution and a fine of up to $250,000. According to prosecutors, in 2015, a businessman who had been extorted by a captain in the Gambino Family (referred to in court filings as “Co-Conspirator 1”) for many years, began avoiding Co-Conspirator 1 in an effort to stop making the $400 annual payment. On Dec. 3, 2015, Tuccio, and co-defendants Jonathan Gurino and Gino Gabrielli, who were charged in a separate indictment, observed the businessman leave a smoke shop in Howard Beach and drive away in his 2014 Mercedes Benz. The three men then followed the businessman at a high rate of speed through the streets of Queens and confronted him outside a pizzeria, where Tuccio mentioned Co-Conspirator 1 and

commented on the businessman’s car. Tuccio and his co-defendants schemed to set the businessman’s car on fire, sending a message that he had to continue making the extortion payments to Co-Conspirator 1. Later that night, the businessman heard a loud noise and saw that his car was on fire outside of his residence. The businessman’s security video system recorded Gabrielli pouring a substance on the car, the car erupting in flames, and Gabrielli running away with his pant leg on fire. Shortly thereafter, Gabrielli and Tuccio were caught on surveillance video entering Jamaica Hospital Medical Center. After the arson, the businessman paid more than $5,000 to CoConspirator 1. In August 2016, Gabrielli pleaded guilty to the arson. In June 2020, Gurino pleaded guilty to extortionate collection of credit and extortion. They are awaiting sentencing. “With today’s guilty plea, Tuccio has been convicted of an offense arising from his efforts to extort a local businessman by brazenly chasing him through the streets and then setting his car ablaze,” said Acting Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Seth DuCharme.

Chandler was ordered to return to court on Feb. 4. According to the charges, at approximately 7:10 p.m. on June 23, 2020, Chandler was inside Frenasia Asian Bistro near the intersection of Cross Bay

State Senate, Borough Prez Move to Help Small Businesses By Michael V. Cusenza The State Senate recently approved a package of bills designed to support small businesses that have suffered as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, State Sen. Joe Addabbo, Jr. (D-Howard Beach) noted. The package of bills include: • S.471A: Establishes the COVID-19 Emergency Protect Our Small Business Act to protect small businesses with COVID-19 related financial hardships from eviction and foreclosure until May 1. • S.1630A: Prohibits any third party food delivery platform from listing, selling or advertising products of any food service establishment without a written agreement with them. • S.1554B: Creates a maximum limit for the total fee that can be charged to a food service establishment by a third-party food delivery service (such as Grubhub, Seamless, Postmates, Doordash, etc.). • S.18A: Creates a requirement for the Department of Labor to increase their efforts to provide information to employers about shared work program eligibility and have information available on the Department’s website. The shared work program can help reduce layoffs and is fully funded by the federal CARES Act during the pandemic. • S.1197: Freezes New York State’s unemployment insurance experience rating for one year for layoffs and closures that occurred due to COVID-19. This action will prevent significant increases in costs to employers who have experienced higher unemployment rates in 2020. • S.1042A: Establishes a system of partial-unemployment. This would shift the current calculation that any day of work leads to a 25% reduction in benefits, and instead would reduce benefits by an amount proportional with the amount earned. This legislation will help incentivize part-time work by reducing the disincentive that a day of work will lead to a disproportionate reduction of benefits. “I support these bills with my local businesses and their workers in mind, knowing that more needs to be done. The bills are intended to help employers, workers, and families move toward economic recovery. As businesses continue to face significant finan-

cial stress from the COVID pandemic, we will continue working to ensure they survive now so they can thrive later,” Addabbo said. After passing the Senate, the package of bills were delivered to the Assembly for consideration. Additionally, Queens Borough President Donovan Richards in partnership with the City and Pursuit Lending, announced the launch of the Queens Small Business Grant Program to provide resources to small businesses impacted by COVID-19. Through a generous $17.5 million donation from Steve Cohen, the City will partner with community-based organizations to offer $15 million worth of grants to Queens small businesses in need up to $20,000 to support operational expenses. Eligible applicants must: • Be located in Queens • Operate as a first-floor storefront business, a second-floor restaurant, or a street vendor • Employed 20 or fewer full-time equivalent employees in 2019 • Earned gross revenue of less than $1 million in 2019 or less than $3 million if a restaurant • Have no tax liens or unresolved judgment • Generated a profit or came close to breaking-even in 2019

Without a Resupply of Doses, City will have to Shutter Vaccination Sites: Mayor By Forum Staff Without a resupply of doses from the federal government, the City will begin to close vaccination sites on Thursday, Jan. 21, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday. This news comes as more than 220,000 vaccines were administered across the five boroughs last week, surpassing the City’s benchmark goal for the second week in a row. New York City is still on pace to run out of vaccine supply this week and continues to call on the federal government to send additional doses. As of Tuesday, the City has already administered more than 455,000 total doses to New Yorkers, including more than 403,000 first doses and more than 52,000 second doses. Another more-than 104,000 doses that have been delivered to NYC are reserved for the CDC’s Long-Term Care Facilities program, meaning they are earmarked and not to be considered part of remaining supply.

“We have the infrastructure to get shots in the arms of hundreds of thousands of people each week,” Mayor de Blasio said, “but we need the doses from our federal partners to actually get it done.”

As a result, there are only 116,000 first doses remaining, which the City anticipates using fully this week. Last week, for example, the City reported administering more than 30,000 doses per day. There are approximately 200,000 doses remaining

that are set aside as second doses. Therefore the vast majority of vaccine that has been physically delivered to NYC is almost entirely accounted for and the City will be out of vaccine it can administer by the end of the week.

“We are running dangerously low on vaccines in New York City,” de Blasio said. “We have the infrastructure to get shots in the arms of hundreds of thousands of people each week, but we need the doses from our federal partners to actually get it done.”

FEMA to Deliver $2B more to New York for COVID-19 Relief: Schumer By Forum Staff Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced Thursday that after numerous discussions with President Joe Biden and his team, his incoming administration’s Federal Emergency Management Agency will deliver roughly $2 billion more to New York City and New York State for COVID-19 relief. Schumer, today, said that while these funds are meant to help alleviate the mounting local costs associated with the pandemic, they will ultimately help both the City of New York and the State tackle COVIDrelated budget gaps. The money, Schumer explained, is tied to the March 2020 FEMA Disaster Declaration declared by the Trump administration. Under that declaration and current policy, 75 percent of NYC and NYS COVID-related expenses are covered by a Disaster Relief Fund. Now, the expenses covered will be 100 percent -- and this will deliver roughly $2 billion more to New York within the next several months. “President-elect Biden is laser-focused on America’s economic recovery, and this recovery begins with tackling the costs states and local governments have incurred in managing the pandemic,” said U.S. Senator Charles Schumer. “For New York, the costs have been huge and will take years to overcome entirely, but achieving my goal of 100 percent FEMA cost share to the city and state will mean a sigh of relief for all New Yorkers because these critical dollars will help protect essential services and workers while we deal with badly burdened budgets that

“For New York, the costs have been huge and will take years to overcome entirely, but achieving my goal of 100 percent FEMA cost share to the city and state will mean a sigh of relief for all New Yorkers because these critical dollars will help protect essential services and workers while we deal with badly burdened budgets that have been gutpunched by COVID,” Sen. Schumer said.

have been gut-punched by COVID. I am glad we could get this done even before the President-elect is sworn in because it shows how we will be hitting the ground running come January 20th.” Schumer has been pushing for 100 percent FEMA cost share since the crisis began. Early on, in March 2020, Schumer wrote FEMA saying, “I write today to urge the Federal Emergency Management Agency to wave the 25 percent state cost share associated with any coronavirus disease work under the March 13 Emergency Declaration. As New York has become the epicenter of the

COVID-19 outbreak in the US, I urge the FEMA to request this waiver from the President as soon as possible.” Schumer spent the next month’s making more calls, speaking with President Trump and hammering home the critical need for 100 percent relief. His advocacy continued for months thereafter and included many meetings, calls and additional letters. New York State and New York City have been responding to COVID since March 2020, spending limited funds on masks, extra nurses and doctors, temporary hospitals, and so much more. Because of Schumer’s

earlier pushes, FEMA told the state and the city that many of these expenses are covered, similar to insurance, under the COVID declarations. Over time the city and state have submitted to FEMA a log of these expenses and FEMA has assessed those expenses. For every dollar spent, FEMA and federal government currently cover 75 cents and the State or City provide the remaining 25 cents. Now, after Schumer’s push, the incoming Biden administration’s FEMA will cover 100 percent of eligible expenses, delivering roughly $2 billion more to the city and state of New York.


Ridgewood Man Arrested for Threatening Members of Congress By Forum Staff A criminal complaint was filed Tuesday in federal court in Brooklyn charging Brendan Hunt, also known as “X-Ray Ultra,” 37, with threatening to murder United States officials, according to federal prosecutors. Hunt was arrested Tuesday morning at his Ridgewood residence and ordered detained pending trial. As alleged in the complaint, on Jan. 8, 2021, two days after the riot in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., Hunt posted a video to Internet-based video sharing site Bitchute in which he exhorted his viewers to violence, urging them that “[w]e need to go back to the U.S. Capitol when all of the Senators and a lot of the Representatives are back there, and this time we have to show up with our guns. And we need to slaughter these m-----f------.” The video was one in a series of statements by Hunt posted on social media since at least Dec. 6, 2020, in which he called for violence and “public execution” against members of Congress. “Before the assault on the Capitol building, and again after, Hunt’s alleged online commentary directly called for the assassination of members of Congress. This is not a hard message to understand—threats of violence against our public officials won’t be tolerated. Mr. Hunt was arrested this morning by the FBI’s New York Joint Terrorism Task Force. To others from this area who still don’t get it – if you are considering a similar path to ‘take up arms’ like Mr. Hunt did, that road leads nowhere except a reservation at our building downtown,” said FBI NY Assistant Director-in-Charge Bill Sweeney, Jr.. If convicted, Hunt faces a maximum Hunt was arrested Tuesday during a pre-dawn raid of his Ridgewood residence. sentence of 10 years in prison.

Mayor Releases $92.28B Preliminary Budget

Photo Courtesy of Ed Reed/Mayoral Photography Office

“After one of the most painful years in our City’s history, this budget puts us on a path to recovery while making responsible choices in light of steep revenue losses due to COVID-19,” Mayor de Blasio said.

By Forum Staff Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday presented New York City’s Preliminary Budget for Fiscal Year 2022. The FY22 Preliminary Budget is $92.28 billion. “After one of the most painful years in our City’s history, this budget puts us on a path to recovery while making responsible choices in light of steep revenue losses due to COVID-19. President-elect Biden will help our recovery by increasing FEMA reimbursement, and new Democratic majorities in Congress must move us forward with a federal COVID relief package that includes direct local aid,” de Blasio said. COVID-19’S IMPACT ON THE BUDGET AND PROPERTY TAXES This budget was crafted in light of the devastating impact COVID-19 has had on the city and economy. The City’s suffered a substantial $10.5 billion drop in its tax revenue over FY20-22; this includes a $1.5 billion decline since November in this fiscal year and the next. Property tax revenue declined by $2.5 billion dollars in FY22 due to a reduction in assessed property values, however this is partially offset by growth in Business and Personal Income taxes. This is the largest decline in property tax revenue since 1996. LOCAL AID FROM FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS KEY The City has had to spend $5.9 billion on COVID-19 related expenses, approximately $1.3 billion of which is not currently covered by federal reimbursement. The incoming Biden Administration recently announced he plans to raise the reimbursement rate to 100 percent, which will provide approximately $1 billion in immediate relief. But the federal government has so far failed to pass a COVID relief package with direct local aid that makes up for our revenue loss. With Democratic majorities in Congress, a federal COVID relief package

must be passed to speed up recovery. With direct local aid, New York City can be made whole again. STATE RISKS The State of New York has threatened to cut $8 billion from localities, which could mean up to $4 billion in cuts for New York City. In addition to aid from the federal government, the State should raise taxes on the wealthy to avoid devastating cuts that affect working people. The City will fight any cuts that harm New Yorkers, especially those concerning education, healthcare and Medicaid, de Blasio pledged. Meanwhile, the federal government has allocated to New York State a total of $4 billion in federal stimulus aid for K-12 schools, and New York City is owed at least half (approximately $2 billion). The State must release this aid without supplantation, de Blasio said. This money will go toward reopening costs the City has already incurred, reopening needs for September and closing the COVID achievement gap. INVESTMENTS FOR CRITICAL NEEDS The FY22 Preliminary Budget invests in critical needs and COVID-19 related recovery, including: • Stop COVID with Test & Trace Corps: $200 million in FY21 • Learning Bridges for students in hybrid learning: $62 million in FY21 • Ensuring no New Yorker goes hungry by providing food relief through GetFood NYC: $52 million in FY21 • Social and emotional learning for our students: $35 million in FY22 • Continue the expansion of WiFi in shelters: $14M in FY21, $3 million in FY22 • Extra resources for answering 311 calls when traffic is high due to COVID-19: $10 million in FY21 and $10 million in FY22. • 70,000 slots for Summer Youth Employment: $132 million in FY22

The Pharmacist’s Corner Presented by Frank Pantina, R.Ph FINDING OUT ABOUT HORMONES: A NEW OPTION FOR WOMEN'S HEALTH

The days of people assigning total trust in their doctors and staying out of their health care decisions are long over. Many factors have contributed to the new-age awareness in personal health care, most notably, rising healthcare cost. One rising area in personal awareness comes from women’s eagerness to investigate the effects of thier ever changing hormones on overall health. Hormones provide many clues about women’s health, but diagnostic testing can run into thousands of dollars which prohibits many, both insured and uninsured, from taking advantage of the valuable knowledge to be found in the information provided by the bodies hormones. Several start up companies launched home testing kits in 2018 with options for testing affects on stress, thyroid and fertility intel among other conditions. Experts are predicting that hormonal home testing will grow three to fourfold over the next few years. While we support everyone arming themselves with as much information and safe practice diagnostic tools to participate actively in their own healthcare, we want to make you aware of some of the possible pitfalls. Home hormone testing definitely has a financial advantage. Most of the kits start under $100 and top out at $400, but one the associated drawbacks is not really knowing

what to test for to get the answers you’re seeking could easily be a waste of money on tests that don’t apply. Additionally, you should always do this testing in conjunction with your doctor’s advice, but be aware that some docs may not have the expertise to interpret results of the hormone panels. It’s critical to work with a physician who can help you make sense of your test results and any follow-up measures needed to be taken in reaction to the results. Many of the kits also include diet and lifestyle recommendations along with supplement suggestions. These kits may very well end up leading to important findings and diagnoses that women might not otherwise seek out. Some of these discoveries could be life threatening and in turn life saving. The kits can be a great option for women, not just those with curiosity, but for those who might not otherwise get essential lab testing. We always advocate your interest and active pursuit to ensure your best healthcare options but we caution you to approach every aspect of the process with careful planning, research, and always with supervised, expert medical care. So if you’re interested in pursuing this new opportunity for women’s health, we ask that you make wise choices and feel free to consult with us in search of the right option for you. Until next week...

More than 100K Phony 3M N95 Masks Seized at JFK U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at John F. Kennedy International Airport assigned to the Cargo Control and Enforcement Division last month seized more than 100,000 counterfeit 3M N95 masks in two shipments from Hong Kong, according to CBP officials. CBP officers made their first interception on Dec. 2 with the second shipment intercepted on Dec. 8. CBP officers consulted with CBP Import Specialists to verify the authenticity of the merchandise and to confirm the possible trademark violations. The Import Specialists from CBP’s Apparel Footwear & Textiles Center of Excellence and Expertise determined that both shipments were in fact counterfeit. CBP consulted with 3M who confirmed that the merchandise was not authentic. In total there were 144,000 pieces of counterfeit merchandise seized. If genuine, the

goods would have had a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $158,400. CBP officials noted that counterfeit N95 masks could end up in healthcare settings such as hospitals, nursing homes, and clinics. Since they are counterfeit, they may not meet the standards of the legitimate manufacturer and may not offer the labeled level of efficacy. Unsuspecting users, including surgeons, nurses and other healthcare professionals, may not be getting the level of protection needed to operate safely while conducting their duties.

City Releases ‘Major Police Discipline Reforms’ By Forum Staff Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday released the first NYPD Discipline Matrix, a major police discipline reform. The matrix outlines presumptive penalties for instances of officer misconduct, which may be adjusted up or down in a set window based on aggravating and mitigating factors. Penalties escalate with repeated offenses. The reforms aim to increase fairness in the disciplinary system, and increase trust in the system among both members of the NYPD and the public, by improving: • Accountability with penalties that are fair and proportional to the misconduct. • Transparency, so that both members of service and the community know what discipline to expect when an officer breaks the rules. • Consistency, so similar actions are treated similarly, and there is greater concurrence between the CCRB recommendations and NYPD decisions on penalties. The discipline reforms are part of de Blasio’s plan to fulfill the Obama Foundation Reimagining Policing Pledge. The pledge, in partnership with the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, calls for mayors to review, engage, report and reform. That multi-step process allowed the City to bring true community input into the formation of the discipline guidelines.

On Aug. 30, 2020, NYPD released the draft disciplinary matrix for public comment. Feedback and input were solicited from the Department’s oversight organizations, as well as community and advocacy organizations. Over 400 comments were received and resulted in changes to strengthen and better adapt the guidelines to better reflect New Yorkers’ experiences. The discipline guidelines are clear and simple to interpret for officers and community members alike. For example: • Use of excessive deadly force has a presumed penalty of termination. • Racial profiling has presumed penalty of termination. • Intentionally making a false official statement has a presumed penalty of termination. • Insubordination has presumed penalty of 20 unpaid days. • Recklessly operating a vehicle has presumed penalty of 20 unpaid days. • Failure to report a lost firearm has presumed penalty of 10 unpaid days. Any penalty could increase if there are aggravating factors like time allowing for deliberate reflection before the action, or if it’s motivated by personal interest. “This matrix, almost two years in the making, establishes clear and consistent presumptive penalties for specific offenses and eliminates the perception of favoritism or bias that can undermine our discipline pro-

“The matrix reflects my commitment that every member of the service is held accountable for his or her conduct based upon reasonable standards,” Police Commissioner Shea said.

cess, as well as the department’s legitimacy in the eyes of the people we are sworn to serve and protect. Moreover, the matrix reflects my commitment that every member of the service is held accountable for his or her conduct based upon reasonable standards. The matrix is meant to be a living document, open to further improvements as the needs of the police and the public naturally evolve,” said Police Commissioner Dermot Shea.

“For years, we have achieved major police department reforms and today’s announcement is just the start for the progress we will make together as a city in 2021,” de Blasio added. “With this new cutting-edge reform, the Police Department now has clear, fair and just discipline guidelines. This is about accountability, building trust and ensuring community engagement is centered in our approach.”
