Rockaway Beach Boulevard is getting some much-needed infrastructure upgrades. On Wednesday, December 12, the NYC DDC, DOT, DEP and Councilman Donovan Richards broke ground on a $24.2 infrastructure project that

will bring improvements to streets, fire protection, water mains and sewers in the area of Rockaway Beach Boulevard from Beach 49th to Beach 59th streets. The project is scheduled to be completed by summer 2021.

AGE IS JUST A NUMBER A 12-year-old walks into a bar. The bartender says, “Kid, what are you doing?” The 12-year-old says, “Tough day. Give me a shot of Jameson.” The bartender can’t believe it. The kid adds, “And leave the bottle.” “Beat it, kid.” “Why? I’m 27.” “Yeah, and I’m a 6’8” Pygmy,” the bartender says. The kid starts moaning about how he just bombed a test, hates his gym teacher and has all these chores at home. “Man, it’s rough. I feel like I’m 27, maybe 28.” The kid shakes his head, “Dog years, man, I’m talking dog years.” The bartender motions with his thumb, outta here. The kid ignores this and climbs onto the barstool. He says his grandfather runs marathons and always says, “Age is just a number. Make it a double.” Now the bartender starts getting a kick out of the kid, the nerve of him. But halfway through a chuckle, the door swings open and three 10-year-olds walk in, chests out like they’re big guys, allowed to be in a bar. The bartender mutters “What the f---” The kids are here for a couple of pints and to discuss the class action suit they’re part of. One kid says he’s a 50-yearold man. “I got it made. I sit on the couch, drink beer, yell at the TV. That’s me.” One of the other kids says he feels

Page 5

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2018

like he’s 21 and just wants to drive for Belle Rock. He’s not gonna let them get away with it, saying he was just 10. “Gonna sue their asses.” He looks at the bartender. “You got a spittoon?” “And what about you?” The bartender says, looking at the third kid. “I saw the Beatles at Shea Stadium.” The bartender slaps the bar and laughs. “No, you didn’t.” The kid says with a straight face. “I believe I was there.” You probably heard about the 69-year-old Dutch guy who went to court to change his age to 49 because he “identifies” as a 49-year-old. Yep, because he felt like a much younger man, he wanted to make it official. The court turned him down. And that’s such bull. Like grandpa says, age is just a number. We can change our name and our gender but not our age? That’s some serious ageism right there. From what I hear, people change their age on Match. com and other dating sites all the time. They put up their high school prom photo when an AARP ID photo would be more accurate. But maybe they feel just young. Maybe they’re still identifying as the disco kings and queens they used to be. I suspect big business is behind the court’s ruling. You wouldn’t need Botox, hair dye, or Viagra. You just declare yourself younger and you’re good to go.

Work would be so much easier at Nicole Frontera Beauty and Spa Rockaway. They could just hand out certificates. You’re twenty years younger. Boom. It’d be like the Scarecrow getting his degree from The Wizard of Oz. Until the courts get this right, there’s gonna be a rampant black market. All those baby boomers who went to 42nd Street for fake IDs and draft cards will be going back there now. I saw a guy who had to be 80 go up some dank stairwell and came out a few minutes later and showed me an ID that said he was 25. “Where’d all the peep shows go? I’m young again, know what I mean?” Back in Rockaway, I heard there was a breakout at an old age home with some octogenarians running after a Mister Softee truck. Meanwhile, the young see the upside of age fluidity. Over at the Sheepshead movie theater, kids were identifying as seniors to get the Seniors Discount. It’s a wacky world; keep

your eye on the courts. That Dutch guy is only the first. People are going to want to change their age for all sorts of reasons. I’m not going to court yet but I’m testing it out. At dinner the other night, the waitress greeted us and asked if we’d like something from the bar. “Just the kids’ menu.” She said ok. This could be good. But kids be careful. You don’t want to be an old white guy, we get blamed for everything.

House Lift Comes Down As The Rockaway Times was going to press, we received reports of a partial house collapse in Roxbury. A home at 72 Hillside Avenue, which was being raised, fell on Wednesday afternoon. Nearby volunteer fire departments, including Point Breeze and the Rockaway Point Fire Department responded to the scene, as well as FDNY. No one was injured as all occupants were out of the home under construction and the neighboring home that the house fell on top of.

The house was found to be in stable condition as emergency crews and members of the NYC Department of Buildings were called to determine how to remove the structure. Despite initial suspicions that the home was part of a Build it Back project, which has seen its fair share of mishaps, neighbors said the home was not under Build it Back and was simply undergoing a lift.

***** Santa gets to reclaim his reputation after Santacon, the annual pub crawl last week at which many bad Santas act naughty. It’s time for some Santapro. On Saturday, December 15, the annual Santa Shuffle takes place. The fun run/walk with everybody wearing a Santa suit kicks off at 11 a.m. on the boardwalk. Registration (9:30-10:45 a.m.), suit pick up and after-party occur at Glider’s gym, 114-04 Beach Channel Drive. Even if you’re not a runner, here’s your chance to walk around with a red suit and make people smile. Oh, and at the party there will be a sign-up for The Rockaway Gliders Running Club. ***** More good Santa will happen the Friday evening be-

fore the Shuffle. Movie Night with Santa is December 14 at St. Camillus starting at 6 p.m. The 100th Precinct Community Council is sponsoring. Although there is no admission fee, it is requested that you bring a new, unwrapped toy, which will be donated to charities. Santa will join the fun and be there to watch Home Alone while enjoying some of the free snacks. ***** So we were getting off the ferry and were surprised to hear ferry workers at Pier 11 telling everyone to open their bags before boarding the Rockaway– bound boat. Apparently, there have been random searches going on for a while now. It’s basically a spot check for weapons, the same thing they do at many public events nowadays. ***** We ask you to shop local and keep in mind that new stores are opening at Arverne By The Sea. You might find the perfect holiday bottle at Vino By The Sea. ***** City Councilman Eric Ulrich

has officially announced that he’s running for Public Advocate. We lost count of how many people are vying for the job, but we think he’s the only Republican. It might make sense to have someone who’s not afraid to bark at the Mayor and Governor. Outgoing Tish James wasn’t too effective calling out those two. He’s not giving up the Council seat unless he wins, of course. You can donate to his run at nycvotes.org ***** Speaking of advocates, did you know there was a Parking Summons Advocate? The NY Post reports that the City pays somebody $120,000 a year to help people fight parking summonses. The story says he’s harder to find than a parking space in Midtown. Taxpayer money at work. ***** Various City agencies — DDC, DOT, DEP— and Councilmember Donovan Richards, announced the start of a $24.2 million infrastructure improvement plan on Wednes-

day. They say there will be improvements to streets, fire protection, water mains and sewers in the area of Rockaway Beach Boulevard from Beach 49th to Beach 59th streets. The project is scheduled to be completed by summer 2021. ***** A couple of petitions are circulating. Ed Gormley has started one in hopes of getting Beach 130th Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard named “PFC John P. McGonigal Jr. Place” in honor of John, a resident of that block, who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam in 1969. Ed has dropped off some petitions at stores on Beach 116th Street and at our office as well (114-04 Beach Channel Drive). If you’re in favor, please sign. The other is to get Parks and the Board of Ed to fix the tennis courts at Beach Channel High School.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2018 these companies post a person to direct traffic at these intersections or park these trucks on the side streets? Where are our local representatives on this accident waiting to happen? Dr. Peter Galvin

CORNER HAZARD Dear Editor: It is hard enough to see oncoming vehicles when approaching Newport Avenue or the Boulevard from the side streets, especially east of Beach 129th Street., if vehicles, especially vans are parked near the corner. Recently, there has been a movie or TV shoot in the low Beach 120s area. The movie company has been parking its huge trucks on Newport and the Boulevard, making it IMPOSSIBLE to see oncoming traffic. One must inch out to practically the middle of the road to see oncoming vehicles. This is a sure recipe for an accident. Why can't the City make

INCLUSIVE Dear Editor: Sgt. Andy Rohman and Peter Mahon deplore “Merry Christmas” being replaced with Happy Chanukah, Happy Kwanzaa, and especially Happy Holidays (Rockaway Times, December 6, 2018). “Holidays" is an inclusive word, originally meaning holy days, but now open to all celebrations (and for periods free from work). Shouldn’t we all embrace this word? Let’s wish each other Happy Holidays, whether holy, secular, and/or free from work. It would be a small victory. We have long lost the fight against the commercialism of the holidays. Kitty Chen Dean

Bandits Make a Grim Holiday Hit on Beach 129th Street By Kami-Leigh Agard

With Rockaway in full holiday swing this past weekend, on Monday, December 10, residents and business owners in the Belle Harbor community woke up to the not-so-merry news that four businesses located on Beach 129th Street’s bustling commercial strip were robbed in the wee hours of the morning. Two of the bandits were seen on security camera video footage captured by one of the businesses. However, as of press time, the NYPD is still on the hunt for the hooded bandits, who some locals suspect are quite familiar with the area. The four businesses robbed just after midnight are Harbor Cleaners, Bon Appetit, Polly and Esther, and Sofia C. Laundromat. All of these businesses are just separated by a few other storefronts on the east side of Beach 129th, between Cronston and Newport Avenues. The Deputy Commissioner, Public Information (DCPI), which is

NYPD’s press office, confirmed that the bandits entered the businesses through the rear of the buildings, and took money. According to a worker at the Laundromat, the bandits took approximately $400 in petty cash from the store, that was locked in the cashier drawer, and coins kept in a jar. “My boss’ husband opened the store as usual at 7 a.m. When he came in, and saw the mess and the broken-down back door, he immediately called the police,” said the worker, who preferred to remain anonymous. “He was the first to report the burglary on the street as we open really

early. He contacted me to wait before I reported to work. The place was a mess, and obviously the robbers were in a hurry because coins and boxes were strewn all over the floor. Thankfully, they didn’t take any of the laundry.” The worker also said that they were able to see the bandits on the store’s indoor camera video footage, which the police took right away. “From the video, you can see the two robbers entering the store through the backdoor. Both of them dressed in sweatshirts with the hoods pulled over their heads, face masks, sweat pants and gloves.

They were obviously well prepared. This has been quite a shock,” the Laundromat’s worker said. Kristin Cann, manager of boutique, Polly and Esther, said they first heard the news from the owner of Harbor Cleaners. “Tom from the Cleaners called my boss, Jamie Mcleod’s husband, to tell him what happened. We were and still are shaken. What a shock for all of us. I grew up and still live in this neighborhood. This is the last place you would imagine this happening. This is home,” Cann wistfully said. According to Cann, the thieves walked away with approximately $600 from the cash register, which they left open, and about $300 worth of jewelry. “The weird thing is they attempted to take some merchandise as well, including some vests, hats and other apparel items. However, the police found the items in the dumpster outside at the rear of the store. Maybe it was too much for them to carContinued on page 11

BANDITS MAKE A GRIM HOLIDAY HIT Continued from Page 10 ry. Other than that, besides the coins, hangers and some apparel thrown on the floor, the store was in pretty good shape, considering,” Cann said. Cann believes that the bandits are quite familiar with the area, and even knew where the cameras were located. “In our store, they ripped out the wires and disabled the camera. They seemed to know where the cameras were in an instant; and even how they entered through the backdoor is puzzling,” she said. The other two businesses robbed, Harbor Cleaners and Bon Appetit, declined to comment. Other surrounding businesses confirmed with The Rockaway Times that they were not robbed, and possessed no video footage. Many of the stores on this strip only have indoor cameras, not outdoor. On Facebook, there was news circulating that the Dunkin Donuts located at 113-20 Beach Channel Drive was also robbed.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2018

However, NYPD Press confirmed the following: “There is no complaint on file for that address in 2018.” However, the NYPD did confirm there was a complaint report filed for a robbery at Rockaway Family Chiropractic, located at 129-10 Newport Ave, for an incident that occurred between Friday, December 7 and Monday, December 10. According to the NYPD, “Unknown person(s) entered a rear window. No items were removed. DCPI has not been provided with surveillance footage.”

The Rockaway community’s heart went out to Polly and Esther’s owner, Jamie Mcleod, when she posted the following on the morning of Wednesday, December 12, on Facebook: “This past Monday morning, at 1:15 a.m., four shops on Beach 129th were robbed. Last night they broke into the chiropractor's office on Newport. They came in through the back doors. If anyone noticed two men with masks on 129th Street, please contact the detectives at the 100th Precinct. They spent about two hours on the street

casing the area. “For those of you who live here, we all know how comfortable we feel living and working here. Those of us who own businesses in the area, please be vigilant and keep your eyes open. These men knew the stores and apparently where everything was. The feelings that you experience after this happens to you are unexplainable…Be careful and stay safe.” As for Cann, though she is still in shock, says these bandits are not going to dissuade businesses from serving their beloved community. “Our community has resurrected after numerous challenges, including Hurricane Sandy, and heartbreak with the Flight 587 crash. We’re survivors. I just want people to keep their eyes open and be aware of what’s going on around them,” she said. The 100th Precinct’s Detective Squad is on top of the investigation. If you have any information, contact their unit at 718-318-4223. Keep reading The Rockaway Times for future updates.

Sands Point Physical Therapy Experienced, Professional, Compassionate What is Laser Therapy? Laser therapy uses a process called photobiomodulation. Photons enter the tissue and interact with the cytochrome c complex within mitochondria. This interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism and a decrease in both pain and inflammation.

Isn’t it the same as Ultrasound?

Does it Work? A review of 6 random controlled trials that included 860 individual patients and published in the peer reviewed medical journal The Lancet: “Laser therapy was found to immediately reduce neck pain AND maintained results up to 22 weeks after completion of treatment”

CB14 December Meeting Recap By Katie McFadden

A ghost of Christmas past made an appearance at the latest Community Board 14 (CB14) meeting on Tuesday, December 11. In addition to updates from committees, public speaking and a presentation on a proposed urban farm project for local students, a director of the New York Rising Community Reconstruction Program was on hand to provide some updates on what happened to those post-Sandy recovery projects that were discussed years ago. During public speaking, Joe Hartigan spoke about how ferry service will continue to expand. Lew Simon provided some updates on the Marine Parkway Bridge, saying that the MTA has agreed not to close the bridge overnight for the month of December. He also spoke to the Rockaway Park Post Office about a lack of holiday stamps, which should be rectified later this week. Lisa George of Senator James Sanders’ office gave

a heads up about an upcoming workshop on reducing property tax and utility bills, on January 18 at Sanders’ office. Call 718327-7017 to make an appointment. Gale Harris, program director for the Far Rockaway Treatment Center, brought awareness to the substance abuse treatment center at 1600 Central Avenue. For more information, call 718-868-1400. JK Canepa announced that a potential offshore wind project could create local jobs, which they’ll continue to fight for. The fight against the new Williams Pipeline is also ongoing. A final Environmental Impact Statement for the project is expected in late January, but there is no plan for the public to comment on it. Canepa and others are fighting to change this. Bayswater resident Eugene Falik spoke about the horrendous mail problems across the peninsula and encouraged neighbors to report any problems at BayswaterCivic.org. He also suggested that

the NYPD should enforce traffic rules for city agencies. Following public speaking was a presentation on a proposed urban farm school center for a 3/4 –acre lot located between Beach 39th and Beach 40th on Rockaway Beach Boulevard. Narine Bharat of the Department of Education gave some information about the plan for a 1,800 squarefoot greenhouse for hydroponic and aquaculture systems to grow produce and fish, plus an outdoor area for raised beds for plantings. The project would be utilized by students from K-12 and would include two classrooms in trailers, where students would learn how to use the farm for not only growing produce, but marketing, management and other skills. The raised plant beds would also be accessible by students and their families on weekends or during summer breaks. The project is expected to get off the ground by spring 2019, so students can start planting seeds in the raised

beds, but funding is still needed for the greenhouse. A bulk of the CB14 meeting focused on a presentation from NY Rising, as committees spent several months discussing how the money should be used for post-Hurricane Sandy recovery projects, but very little seemed to be happening. Christopher Gorman, director of the state’s New York Rising Community Reconstruction Program, was on hand to break down where each project stands. He first announced that each project must be complete by fall 2022 for the funding to be awarded for them. Many expressed that while 2022 may seem far off, it isn’t, when it comes to the way the government functions. Gorman then broke down each project under each committee. In the Rockaway West section, there is a street improvement project for Beach 108th Street which is at the 50 percent designed phase. Another project to improve the esplanade near Continued on page 15

CB14 DECEMBER Continued from Page 14 the ferry landing has not yet reached the design phase. A plan to make improvements to St. Francis de Sales with a generator, flood protection measures, check valves to prevent sewer backups and more, has not yet entered the design phase but will soon. A $1.5 million comprehensive green infrastructure project for Rockaway West, including bioswales required testing, and specific sites for this project will soon be determined. Seaside and Peninsula Libraries were supposed to get resiliency upgrades including generators, but as of last week, Queens Library turned down the offer, claiming that it won’t have the funds to sustain these items in the future, so the funding for this, about $1.2 million will need to be reallocated to another project. In Rockaway East, hundreds of thousands of dollars were allocated to Arverne Church of God, the Jewish Community Council of Rockaway, the Far Rockaway Library and Rockaway Wa-

Page 15

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2018 terfront Alliance for resiliency workshops, which have taken place. The Rockaway Development & Revitalization Corp. received nearly $500K for workshops to enhance community resiliency and to provide certification training for several OSHA classes. As far as construction projects go, Arverne Church of God, Congregation Kneseth Israel, Young Israel of Wavecrest, Addabbo Health Center and St. John’s Hospital are set to get resiliency measures like generators, check valves and more, and the design of these projects is 100 percent complete and will soon go out to bid. Downtown Far Rockaway will be getting a major $4.5M streetscape upgrade for which the city will be releasing a Request for Proposals. The Center for NYC Neighborhoods has also been awarded money to give homeowners resiliency reports that will advise them of different options for their homes to keep insurance costs down. For Broad Channel, phase two of the Sunset Cove project will receive $500K. The design phase

is almost 100 percent complete. Design for resiliency measures for the American Legion is almost 100 percent complete. A project that includes a new storage facility for the Broad Channel Athletic Club is 100 percent designed and should be going out to bid shortly. The design for the reconstruction of a boardwalk at East 12th Street is about 30 percent complete. The Broad Channel Volunteer Fire Department is supposed to get $750K for a new firehouse, but bids for this project have failed so far, so more funding is being requested to make the job more appealing to contractors. The VFW was set to get money for resiliency measures, but after finding out that all NY Rising construction projects must get flood insurance, the VFW turned it down as it cannot afford insurance. In Breezy Point, there is a $17 million investment for three different sites to improve the stormwater drainage, including near the ball fields in Breezy and Roxbury, and a third site. This plan is expected to begin in 2019.

With so much information, CB14 requested a detailed report from Gorman, summarizing each project, and a promise that he’ll come to another meeting before the summer to provide new updates. The meeting ended with committee reports from CB14’s Youth Services and Education Committee and the Economic Development Committee. The Youth Committee report contained a lot of information as the committee recently met to discuss education issues for the first time in a long time. The chairpeople had invited the public to provide input as to what should be focused on in regards to Rockaway’s struggling schools. The committee will use this input as a starting point for what issues to focus on going forward. The EDC Committee report included a recap of what happened at the recent meeting regarding the courthouse on Beach 90th Street. Details can be found in the meeting summary in the November 30 issue of The Rockaway Times.

NYPD Nabs Package Thieves The season of thievin’ continues, but thanks to local NYPD officers, there are a few less grinches on the street. On Tuesday afternoon, December 11, neighbors were shocked to see about a dozen police cars respond to a location on Beach 126th Street and learn that arrests were made of people stealing packages from porches. The Rockaway Times reached out to the 100th Precinct for more information on the incident. According to Community Affairs officer, Officer Daniel Smyth: “On Tuesday, December 11, 2018, at approximately 3:30 p.m., in the vicinity of Beach 127th Street, there was a 911

call made regarding package theft from the front of a residence. Subsequently, three males, ages ranging from 20-22, were arrested. Two of the three perpetrators were dressed as FedEx employees. They were charged with Petit Larceny, Criminal Impersonation, and Criminal Possession of Stolen Property. The third perpetrator was following in a vehicle close by. He was charged with Petit Larceny, Criminal Possession of Stolen Property and Driving with a suspended license. All three males are residents of Rockaway.” Way to go to the 100th Precinct for responding quickly to this matter and arresting the suspects.

Job Well Done In the November 15 issue of The Rockaway Times, we ran a feel-good story about FDNY Boxing, the Graybeards, Rockaway WISH and contractor Eric Jahrnes of Final Homes Contracting coming together to provide a new bathroom to a disabled Vietnam veteran. The vet, who chose to remain anonymous, had had a stroke that left him wheelchair-bound. Since moving to a Dayton Towers East building about a year and a half ago, the veteran couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the bathroom or bathtub in his apartment and resorted to using the showers at the YMCA a few blocks away. When Bobby McGuire of FDNY Boxing found out about his story at the Thrilla in Camillia event, which raises funds for Building Homes for Heroes, a nonprofit that provides smart homes for Afghanistan and Iraq veterans, he was determined to help the Vietnam veteran get a new bathroom that he could use in his home. The Graybeards and Rockaway WISH pitched in some money towards the renovation and Final Home Renovations took care of the work. They removed the tub and instead installed a walk-in shower with grab bars, plus a handicap-accessible sink, and they expanded

the doorway from 24â&#x20AC;? to 32,â&#x20AC;? so the veteran can have better access to his newly renovated bathroom. Here you can see a

ADDABBO and SANDERS GET NEW CHAIR POSTS New York State Senators Joseph Addabbo Jr. and James Sanders Jr. have been selected to chair committees for the 2019 state legislative session. Addabbo has been selected as chairman of the NYS Senate Standing Committee on Racing, Gaming and Wagering beginning in January. With Aqueduct Racetrack and the Resorts World New York City Casino located in his district, Addabbo is very familiar with the economic impact of these industries both locally and statewide. One issue that will come before the Racing, Gaming and Wagering Committee in the New Year will likely be the future of legal sports betting in New York. The Committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jurisdiction also includes oversight of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s racetracks, video lottery terminal placements, care of retired racehorses, off-track betting,

the New York State Lottery, charitable gaming, and other issues associated with racing and wagering in New York. In addition, the Committee oversees the operations and regulatory mission of the NYS Gaming Commission, as well as the work of the New York Racing Association (NYRA), which runs the Aqueduct, Belmont and Saratoga racetracks. Sanders has been selected to chair Senate Committee on Banks. Previously, in his capacity as the ranking Democrat on the Senateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Committee on Banks, Sanders began addressing the disparities in lending particularly in lowand middle-income communities by supporting the modernization of the Community Reinvestment Act, a federal law that aims to accomplish this goal. This will continue to be one of his priorities.

FAITH AND HOPE Faith and love will guide you through difficult times. So often we experience suffering and loss in our life. Sadness can flow deep into our heart because we have loved and lost. Especially during the holidays, those that have lost loved ones feel a terrible sadness. We try to console and help one another as best we can but, in the end, you must trust the process. Love and compassion will help to heal your broken heart. Trust and believe. Without my faith, I would not be able to move on and continue to live life fully when times get tough. From a young age, it was

instilled in me to believe in God. It doesn’t matter what religion you belong to, but if you have your faith, you have the greatest gift you will ever receive. There will be good times and bad times, and you will learn to understand this is all part of life. We sometimes question why there is so much suffering and loss, but your faith will carry you on. Faith gives you strength, integrity and dignity. If we do not have our faith, we will break and lose heart. I believe in prayer and intention. My parents gave me the greatest gift when they taught me to have faith.

Hope is a word that not everyone believes in. We pray for miracles every day and hope there is a cure for disease or discontentment. One who has hope, has the will and determination to set goals so they will be achieved. Hope is important because life is difficult and so many obstacles are put in our way. Hope allows people to approach problems with a mindset to be successful. I hope whoever is reading this believes in the power of HOPE. Most times when I go to my yoga mat, I put my hands in a prayer gesture and I ask for God’s guidance. Without this special intention, I am somewhat lost. Working with my breath, I breathe in calm, I breathe out peace. My Intention draws my Attention in. The mantra resonates and begins to manifest within my body and mind. Paying attention to what you believe is powerful. Sometimes I will do nine sun salutations, each one representing an intention/ prayer attached to it. Pray for peace, pray for compassion, pray for healing, pray for love, pray for freedom, pray for humanity,

pray for the good of all, PRAY for FAITH. You don’t have to do nine sun salutations, but imagine setting intentions and having faith in each one, hoping for the best outcome? My faith is my lifesaver. My good friend Denise Lee gave me a beautiful coffee cup describing faith on it, “With Man this is impossible, but with God ALL things are POSSIBLE.” Matthew 19:26. May you all have faith in this beautiful season of lights. The Choice. "Is it faith or fear that rises to the fore, affirmation or negation at the very core and center of the self? Will it be light or dark within the heart today? The icy grip of fear that knots and sours leaving me to cower in the shadows? There is another way-I know it surely as I know the scent of Spring, the choice of faith invites, invokes, calls forth from all creation both the blessing and the lesson of the day. Whether faith or fear, the choice is mine alone. Each moment, choosing, stepping through the door, trusting that the path beyond will surely lead me home." By Danna Faulds.

Ask the DOC

By Peter Galvin, MD

Smoke-Free Therapy As I have previously written, smoking tobacco products is probably one of the most destructive things people can do to themselves. Tobacco dependence remains the primary preventable cause of death in the United States. Addiction to tobacco and nicotine is a more powerful addiction than opioids and narcotics. That being said, it is fair to say that most smokers want to quit smoking but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. While some smokers are able to abruptly stop smoking (â&#x20AC;&#x153;cold turkeyâ&#x20AC;?), most smokers cannot suddenly stop. In order to quit, most smokers require a combination of pharmacologic therapy and counseling. Today, I would like

to discuss pharmacologic treatment for smoking cessation. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start with nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs). Nicotine undergoes first-pass metabolism in the human body. That means that once nicotine enters the bloodstream, the first time it passes through the liver, it is almost entirely removed and broken down. That is why oral NRTs are not available. Because the half-life (the amount of time for a medication to be reduced to 50 percent of its maximum blood level) of nicotine is so short, oral NRT is ineffective. NRTs decrease smoking cessation rates by 50 to 70 percent, at least in the short term, plus they reduce the

tipsychotics, beta-blockers, and certain types of antiarrhythmics. Varenicline (Chantix) is also FDA-approved for smoking cessation. It works by attaching itself to nicotine receptors in the body, thereby relieving cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Its bond with nicotine receptors is stronger than the bond of nicotine itself, thereby reducing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;rewardsâ&#x20AC;? of smoking. It should be started about seven days before the targeted quit date. When combined with NRTs, varenicline plus an NRT has been shown to be more effective. It too is generally well tolerated, the most common side effects being nausea and sleep disturbances, including abnormal dreams. Varenicline has no significant drug interactions. If you or someone you know is a smoker, please get to your doctor to get help in quitting. It may save your life, and I guarantee it will save you a significant amount of money.

amount of weight gain associated with quitting. Over-the-counter (OTC) NRTs include patches, lozenges, and gum (in lozenges and gum, the nicotine is absorbed through the gums). Nasal sprays and oral inhalers are available by prescription. Usually a combination of a patch and other form of NRT is recommended. Because it can irritate the throat and nasal membranes, nicotine nasal spray should not be used for more than three months. Side effects of NRTs include skin irritation, vivid dreams, insomnia, heartburn, nausea, and hiccups. Once NRT is initiated, the patient will slowly reduce, then stop, smoking. Bupropion (Wellbutrin) is an oral antidepressant that was found to have some nicotine-receptor-blocking ability. It should be started at least seven to 14 days before the targeted quit date. In studies, it doubled the quitting rate when compared to placebo. It is generally well tolerated. The most common side effects are insomnia and a dry mouth. It does interact with some medications including antidepressants, an-

Stop the Insanity So I often walk into work and ask the safety officer who sits at the front desk if he thinks today will be the day the hidden cameras come out and we find out that this whole crazy town act will be just a social experiment to see how much people can take. I truly believe that the people who are offended by everything are just saying it to see if they can get a rise out of people or to see if the corporate higher ups will modify things to suit the offended. The latest is one of my favorite holiday songs, “Baby

It’s Cold Outside.” The composer, Frank Loesser, is said to have written it as a song he and his wife could sing together at parties. I enjoy the movie Elf with Will Ferrell and I love the scene where him and Zooey Deschanel sing that song. Now people want it banned from the airwaves because the lyrics and a video of the song imply date rape. As of today, some radio stations polled their listeners and they have returned the song to its airwaves. I hope they do not cut it out of Elf… There is also outcry that

If you remember when this was your search engine.

Rudolph is not appropriate for children due to its offensive content. My mother was pretty strict and would not let us watch certain television shows, such as Three’s Company because she did not think it was appropriate for Jack to live with Janet and Chrissy. However, she never banned Rudolph or any other holiday films from the house. People are saying that it is racist and misogynistic. I feel it is a story of someone who is different and in the end people see Rudolph for his strong points. Hopefully some young children will watch that show and learn not to treat others badly who may be in their class or school that are different. I know as a child I felt terrible for Rudolph and I would not want someone to feel that way. I cannot wait to see what the next thing is that offends someone. Could it be that Ebenezer Scrooge is too mean to Tiny Tim? Maybe It’s A Wonderful Life portrays bankers in a negative

light and the banking industry says they want it banned from NBC. Or The Christmas Story is banned because of the inappropriate lamp that the dad hangs in the window for all of the neighbors to see? No wait, it would be the bullying that gets Flick to stick his tongue to the pole. That is super mean and offensive. Until the hidden cameras come out, I would love to hear what you think is so horrible about a certain Christmas film and why. Let me know. Have a great week everyone!

Mirror Mirror Dear Enchantress, Hello Goddess! I love when I hear you say that to people! I have a situation. I have a 19-year-old daughter that is very feminine, she attracts older men, and it's a very familiar story. It's another version of me and her father. Her father is 15 years older than I. Although we are no longer together, he is a great parent. I am constantly thinking, pretty much obsessing about her and how she dates older men. She hides them from me, and she thinks I don't know. She's a great student in s.chool and has nice friends. She does after-school things, and I'm re-

ally proud of her. I don't want to mess up our relationship, which is overall ok. I want her to have a full life and realize all of her choices. She is still young enough where I set times for her to come home and I set rules. She works and contributes to the house in small ways. She's really a good kid! How can I approach her with my worries without pushing her into the life that I don't exactly want for her? Young, married to an older man, pregnant and suffering. Dear Mirror Mirror, I am so glad you are writing in, I sense an ease in most of

your writing. I'm curious if you feel ok or trust the fact that she is a "good kid." And your worries are very real. Have you and her had any talks about sex and dating? If you haven't, it might be a good place to begin. NOT an instructional talk, but one that is open and curious, and includes empowering conversations about safe sex. I speak to this first, to help avoid early pregnancy. Dating is one thing, having a child is another Universe. Are you dating? Sharing a small empowering snippet from your own life can be a great way to open the door of vulnerability and trust. The movie "13 Going on 30" can be a corny and funny way to get in touch with her mindset, to be watched together, and then, over cooking or a meal, to ask questions and answer questions. Beware of sounding like a reporter. Also, integrate the truth, that you love her and want the best for her, and if she is dating someone, no

matter what he's about, that you'd love to meet him, and you'll do your best to have no judgement. That means, really no advice-giving to her if she is open to introducing you. That might be the hardest part. Not telling her what to do, building dating trust and meeting her dates can be the best way to build trust and an open door to come to you when SHE DECIDES. For more info on Enchantress Shane, and her work with men and women to have more self expression, courage and connection, you can reach out to her at love@enchantedembodiment.com

The Gift of Shopping Less By Sarah Arikian

This time last year I started becoming aware that I was spending time – lots of it – shopping. When I glanced at my iPhone the words boomed out at me: “SARAH, WE HAVE CURATED YOUR DREAM DECEMBER NEEDS,” “SARAH, YOUR SHOPPING BAG IS SAD – HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN SOMETHING?” Really? It irritated me and I started to think how shopping had become a time-consuming hobby. One ad would pop up and it would lead me down a warren of things that cost me a lot of time. Sometimes I succumbed – that unwise top from Sundance, those three-inch gray velvet peep-toed heels that were just too silly. And back to time. I realized that I was missing out on reading. I love reading.

Fifteen minutes with my nose in a book and I’d be Googling something, and then an ad would pop up for a sweater and I’d be looking to see if it was available in my size and I’d be off. I missed my quiet reading days. And my closet was getting too stuffed. Coincidentally, I read an article by Ann Patchett in the New York Times, My Year Without Shopping. It was inspiring! Maybe I could try? I set some rules. My stylish niece was getting married in September, in a swanky location in the south of France, and my whole family would be going. There was no way I was going to turn up shabby and not chic, so I gave myself permission, that I would be allowed to buy a dress. No other clothes, jewelry, shoes or bags, starting January 1!

On January 1, I was still lusting after a pair of Allbirds shoes. An advertisement on Facebook had told me I must buy, and I was annoyed with myself for not remembering to buy them before the new year rolled round. On January 2, I still wanted them. By January 4, I realized I could live without them, went into my closet, sorted through my shoes and donated a number of pairs. Finally, I could see all the nice pairs I already had! I spammed all my retail ads, and woke up to a severely depleted inbox, which was initially a shock (was I no longer loved?) – where were all my Anthropologie, Zappos friends? I found myself shopping in my own closet, even finding things with price tags on them. Unexpected abundance!

My daughter came over now and then and I gratefully adopted an excellent pair of Nikes and a sweater I took to wearing often and it made me think of her. I read lots of exceptional books with my gift of time. Less, (appropriate title!) by Andrew Sean Greer, and Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann, and I felt like my old self had returned. I realize there is a huge difference between shopping less and not being able to afford to shop. I ate out, went to shows, bought gifts from local retailers. But I found that it sharpened my awareness of money and time squandered. I cleaned out my bathroom cabinets and found samples of products I have been using all Continued on page 36

year. My shelves are minimalist now, and I finish everything, and that makes me happy. There is a Sanskrit term used by the ancient Yoga philosophers that I like: Aparigraha — The virtue of being less possessive, not greedy. I’ve been mulling over it this year, as I’ve repaired jeans and bought buttons, have worn things I didn’t think I liked, and worn my favorite things over and over. It’s simplified my life. When I finally got around to buying a dress for my niece’s wedding in September, it wasn’t a particularly fun experience and I was shocked by the prices. I should have reached into the back of my closet and packed that old teal-colored silky, swishy, dress that made me feel beautiful. It wasn’t like anyone had

The Rockaway Times seen me in it before either, so it would have been penny-wise and prudent. Overall I would say that this was a very positive experience. It made me face some of my spendthrift habits and question how I really wanted to spend my time. I’ve enjoyed the good things that are already mine, and I’ve wasted less. I am not sure what kind of resolution I will make next year. Maybe I will continue, and maybe I will purchase just one pair of highly impractical shoes? Just for fun…

Life With Our “Artistic” Child By Kami-Leigh Agard

Parents — Here Are 3 Ideas on How to Make Your Holidays Brighter By Kami-Leigh Agard

Between decorating the house, gift shopping, a gazillion family gatherings, and trepidatiously gearing up for those LONG eight days our children will be on vacation, the end-of-year holidays could be a harrowing time for many parents with loved ones on the autism spectrum. How-

ever, instead of allowing your stress overload to implode, why not use this time as a merry opportunity to have some fun, treat yourself and express your needs to friends and family? After all, ’tis the season for us too, to be jolly! Here’s three ideas on how we can resourcefully squeeze some ‘me’ time in. Disclaimer: Don’t feel guilty, as a 24-hour loving,

hardworking parent, you deserve it! 1. Book one of your trusted family members or caregivers to watch your child, and schedule an evening to do something fun with your partner or best mates. Maybe you haven’t seen a movie in ages or want to finally check out the new restaurant everyone’s raving about. Rockaway has evolved into a nirvana for foodies, and even in the wintertime, there are so many amazing places open with live music to satisfy your lust for great food, music and company. (For a weekly list, see RT’s Rockaway Good Times on page 40). Also, here’s a novel idea. Host a wine-tasting party at home with friends. Longtime Rockaway Beach Autism Families (RBAF) supporter Suzanne O’Rahilly with company, ViaOneHope, hosts fun wine-tasting parties right in the comfort of your home, and the added bonus? Fifty percent of the profits go towards multiple charities. For more info, visit website: viaonehope.com/withwithsuzanneo. 2. They say it’s the thought that counts when you receive a present, but how many of us have opened a gift and silently said, “Great. Another pair of gloves.” Why not vocalize what you want, like a much-needed deep tissue massage with local wellness center NurtureU Wellness (nurtureuwellness. com), a yoga class package at Ocean Bliss Yoga Studio (www. oceanblissyoga.net/), or a gift certificate to local clothing boutiques, Lana’s Loft (114-04 Beach Channel Drive), Polly & Esther (414 Beach 129th Street), End of the A (37 Beach 129th Street) or The Swellife (91-08 Rockaway Beach Blvd). This is a triple-header because not only are you making it easier for the gift-giver, but you are receiving what you want, and supporting a Rockaway business. 3. Try a new experience with your child. Instead of stressing about the eight-day winter recess, use this time to bond and do something fun together like learning to play an instrument, an exercise class or even creating a photo

The Rockaway Times collage of beautiful memories from 2018. Local music and art space, Rustwoods, recently launched Rustwoods Consortium of Music, where you can book music lessons with a variety of accomplished musicians. From drums, guitar, piano and more, grab the chance to learn something new with your child. For more info, email: mikesdrummer@gmail. com. As for exercise classes, local Zumba Queen Lisa G, hosts free Zumba classes at the Far Rockaway Educational Campus (821 Bay 25th Street) Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. For more info, visit Facebook page: Total Body Workout with LisaG aka RockaZumbaWay. Creating the photo collage will be fun as together, you’ll get to re-experience each moment with the photos and memorialize them forever. There are many apps where you can create online photo books, but I prefer the old school method of cutting and pasting photos on a poster, which you can display. The magic is in sharing the experience with your child. I came up with the above ideas after carefully listening to RBAF parents. There should be no guilt in demanding what you need to make the holidays brighter for you as a caregiver. The less stressed you are, the more bandwidth of patience you will have with your children. So get out there, declare what you want and have a blessed holiday season! Speaking of presents, thanks to the Best Man in Rockaway, aka Mr. Owen Loof, tonight, Thursday, December 13 at 7 p.m., RBAF is hosting a holiday gathering at Knights of Columbus (330 Beach 90th Street). Everyone goes home with a gift, a belly full of yummy food and chances to enter the FREE raffle to score a special gift. Ritchie Knott, former Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus, said, “The Knights are a longstanding supporter of the Rockaways, and we are so happy to open our doors and hearts to the autism community.” For more info about RBAF events and support group meetings, visit Facebook page: Rockaway Beach Autism Families.

Annual Christmas Tree Lighting at SFDS Hundreds gathered on Rockaway Beach Boulevard outside the St. Francis de Sales Prayer Garden to celebrate the annual lighting of its 100+ Christmas trees and angels. Bill Sweeney and Father Jim offered prayers and blessed the trees. Holiday music filled the air. The crowd was also serenaded by Father Jomar, who was celebrating his birthday (and Father Jomar took these pics!) Santa made an appearance and so did Roger the Elf who delighted all the kids. Tis the season!

Slipping Through the Cracks This one shouldn’t slip through the cracks. Local resident Donna Ward recently wrote a letter to NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver and DOE Chancellor Richard Carranza to bring attention to the disintegrating tennis courts at the Beach Channel Educational Campus and to suggest some be used for pickleball. We’ll let her letter and photos do the talking. Dear Commissioner Silver and Chancellor Carranza, I am writing concerning the Beach Channel Tennis Courts and their conversion to pickleball courts in Rockaway. The NYC Parks department website states that, “It’s never been easier to become a tennis player in New York City”. That may be true elsewhere but not if you live in Rockaway. There are eight tennis courts at Beach Channel High School that are virtually unusable (photos enclosed). The cracks that are all over every court were patched

with what appears to be tar sealer. The playing surface is completely uneven. This is true for all the courts. They look like a jigsaw puzzle. You can still see the cracks through some of the seams, not to mention weeds coming through the cracks. Some courts have half a net, while other courts are missing nets, and the nets that are there are damaged. After Hurricane Sandy, we were promised so many things that never materialized. Our boardwalk (actually cement walk) took nearly five years to complete. It’s funny that the Empire State Building was built in a little over a year. The city sprung for a wooden boardwalk in Coney Island but not in Rockaway. It was too expensive. The NYC Parks Department recently sponsored a pickleball tournament in Rego Park. It seems ironic that there are no public outdoor pickleball courts in NYC. Marine Park in Brook-

lyn was recently renovated and has fifteen tennis courts. Couldn’t you convert four of those courts to pickleball courts? A second thought, although a less desirable option, would be to put pickleball lines in a different color and the courts could be used for both tennis and pickleball. Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the United States with the exception of New York. It’s ideal for older tennis players who may have lost some mobility. The average age of a pickleball player is 64 years of age. Pickleball has both health and socialization benefits. “Good things come to those who sweat.”

We have a beautiful beach and boardwalk in Rockaway, but only one city park that looks as though it was abandoned (Beach 51st Street and Almeda Ave). We have no major businesses (except for Stop and Shop), no movie theatre, no city golf courses and no ice skating rinks. To travel to Brooklyn, we are reliant on the Marine Parkway Bridge, which has been under repair for the last 17 years. We do have a Federal Park (Riis Park), but it was voted the worst federal park in the U.S. It’s in the same shape as our tennis courts - shambles. I have an online petition signed by my fellow pickleball enthusiasts. The Beach Channel Tennis Courts are like pieces of coal just waiting to become diamonds. All they need is pressure. Sincerely, Donna Ward Those interested in signing the petition can do so at pickleballbaby.com
