Five Years of Winning

And a First Place for Katie McFadden

Five years in business, and five years in a row as an award-winning newspaper. The Rockaway Times was once again awarded by the New York Press Association, with this year being a big one for Managing Editor Katie McFadden, who earned a first place win for feature story. Some of The Rockaway Times crew made the trip up to Albany last weekend for this year’s NYPA Spring Conference and

announcement of the 2018 Better Newspaper Contest awards. The event held at the Hilton Albany, featured a program of various lectures from professionals in the newspaper business. Each year, hundreds of staff from newspapers across the state attend this yearly conference. This year, McFadden took home first place for feature story in Division 4 for her June 2018 story, “The Golden Venture 25 Years Later,” which told the story of rescuers responding to the stranding of the ship that carried nearly 300 Chinese immigrants off of Fort Tilden. The judge’s comments on the story read, “This story is written in such a way that it feels like you, the reader, were actually there at the

time the Chinese immigrants were smuggled aboard the Golden Venture. The way the incident seemed one way at first encounter turned out to be something so much more intense. What an incredible situation. It could be a movie.” McFadden received a wooden plaque for winning first place. The Feature Story category is the most competitive category in the whole Better Newspaper Contest. This year, there were a total of 300 entries in the category. McFadden’s award was for Division 4, which had 49 submissions. This is the third time McFadden has been awarded in this category, with a second place win in the 2017 contest and an honorable mention for the 2016 contest. That wasn’t the only award of the weekend! The Rockaway Times also took home third place and an honorable mention for Spot News Photo and third place for Picture Story. Andrew Nellen’s photo of his

daughter fishing off her porch in a flooded Broad Channel took the third place Spot New Photo win. The judges said, “As it should, the photo tells it all. Nice job.” Dougie MacLeod’s photo of a cop carrying an elderly man away from a fire at Dayton Towers got an honorable mention, with the judges saying, “Wow. Gripping photo.” The Spot News Photo category had a total of 64 entries, with 23 in Division 2, which The Rockaway Times was in. The third place for Picture Story was a series of photos showing some after Hurricane Sandy scenes and how those areas look six years after the storm. The photos were taken by Publisher Kevin Boyle and other various contributors. This category had a total of 64 entries, with 15 in Division 2. Fortunately, we weren’t the ones to win Blooper of the Year, like last year! Just goes to show The Rockaway Times is a FREE paper with quality that is always improving!

Bloomberg Volunteers Spruce Up Dubos Point The Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation welcomed 100 volunteers from Bloomberg LP this past Sunday to clean up the Dubos Point Wildlife Sanctuary in Arverne. The park, named in honor of environmentalists, Dr. René and Jean Dubos, is an important natural area providing habitat for birds and other wildlife. Volunteers spent the afternoon removing large marine

debris from the shoreline, including docks and an abandoned boat. In total, volunteers removed over 6,000 pounds of plastic, foam and other trash from the shoreline. Michael Dockett, the newly-appointed NYC Parks Queens Borough Commissioner, participated throughout the day, along with Parks' staff. The Conservancy hosts cleanups of Jamaica Bay and Rockaway parks throughout the year and depends on local volunteers and corporate groups to keep parks clean. Bloomberg LP has long supported the Conservancy in efforts to improve parks. “We rely on volunteers to ensure our parks are clean and free of debris that might harm wildlife and the visitor experience. We are grateful to have the support of so many Bloomberg employees to help improve our parks,” Alex Zablocki, executive director of the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy said. “Much like many other shorelines across the country, we face the threat of single-use

plastics continually finding their way on our beaches and marshes, along with other marine debris. The monumental task of removing this trash is only possible through partnership with NYC Parks and volunteers,” Zablocki concluded. Earlier this year, the Conservancy launched a Corporate Volunteer and Sponsorship Program to help bring more support from companies like Bloomberg LP to Rockaway parks. For more information on this program and to volunteer, visit: www. jbrpc.org or call 347-690-0931.

***** Sometimes you get more than you pay for. The Rockaway Times might be a free paper but there’s quality in these here pages. For the fifth straight year, we’ve won awards at the New York Press Association’s Better Newspaper Contest, a statewide competition. This year, Editor Katie McFadden knocked it out of the park as she won First Prize for best Feature Story (The Golden Venture, 25 Years Later). The RT also won in some photo categories. Don’t worry, we won’t start charging for the paper. You can always pay us by telling our advertisers, you saw their ad in The Rockaway Times. ***** Haven’t even seen the beach in months? Well, locals (and those smart enough

to visit) can get a preview of summer fun on Friday, May 17. That’ll be the unofficial opening of the Boardwalk Concessions. The official opening will be a week later. ***** Congratulations to Joe Keenan who did a fantastic job as president of the Graybeards for the past four years. Joe had big shoes to fill when he took over for Steve Stathis. And now Tom Morgan has big shoes to fill as he follows Joe. Tom is a great choice to run the non-profit that has done so much since it began after 9/11 and the crash of Flight 587. ***** The Rockaway Times Photo Contest deadline is Friday, April 12. We’ve received some great shots and hope a few more come in. Please, please, stick to the categories. Rainbows/Lightning, Humor/Fun, Beach Life, Pets/Animals, and Rockaway Parades. And no photos outside of the Rockaway peninsula or Broad Channel. Email high-resolution pho-

tos to PhotoExpo@Rockawaytimes.com. And here’s a big thank you to all who’ve entered. ***** Chris Mullin stepped down as St. John’s basketball coach on Tuesday. His presence drew a lot of fans from Rockaway to home games making Alumni Hall and Madison Square Garden seem like a Rockaway annex. Won’t be the same without him. ***** For the first time ever, if not ever, then in a million years, The Rockaway Theatre Company will test out some original, locally-produced plays. Rock Away Pens (that’s three words), a new writer’s group, will present three one-act plays on May 3, 4, and 5. And the shows are FREE. See Page 19 for more info. ***** So they (with your tax dollars) put in a new kind of path along the oceanfront in Fort Tilden. You can’t ride your bike on it unless your tires can handle soft sand and

sharp broken shells. Hurricane Sandy destroyed much of the concrete road that allowed bike riders and runners to enjoy a nice pass through the old fort. We heard the old road would be replaced by a composite surface more in line with the natural environs. We didn’t expect a soft sand path with shells and fencing that blocks part of the path for the protection of piping plovers. Ugh. ***** The forecast calls for Chili. The 10th Annual Community Council Chili & Mac n Cheese Cook-off is set for Friday, April 26, 7 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus. You can show off your cooking skills or just go to enjoy. Please call Kathy at 917-2840410 to enter your own dish and she’ll provide details. ***** The Taste Of Rockaway is back. The spring food and fun festival will be Saturday, May 4 from noon to 6 p.m. hosted by The Rockaway Union.

CB14 Votes for Beach 61st Safety Improvements By Katie McFadden

With several committee reports on the agenda, April’s Community Board 14 went well into the late night on Tuesday, but it was chock full of information and even an important decision for neighbors of Beach 61st Street, who have long been asking for traffic changes on their residential block that regularly sees speeding cars, creating dangerous situations for the seniors, families and individuals who live there. As they’ve done for months, residents of Beach 61st spoke during the public speaking portion of the meeting, to plea for something to be done on their block before someone gets killed. The issue concerns cars using Beach 61st Street as a way to bypass traffic and lights on Rockaway SERVING THE COMMUNITY FOR OVER 50 YEARS

Beach Boulevard. This has resulted in drivers speeding down the block that stretches from the boulevard to Beach Front Road. As the issue has repeatedly been tabled, residents have grown increasingly frustrated as conditions continue to worsen. A woman named Paula began by asking those with friends in Long Beach to ask them to stop speeding, as much of the traffic comes from that area, and to drivers as a whole. “Give us time to get our cars into our driveways. Give us time to get our kids out of our cars. Don’t blow horns or curse at us. We are residents and pretty soon, my car is going to start having car trouble in the middle of the street, my hood will go up, and I won’t move,” she implied, frustrated over the ongoing ordeal. “Mothers have gone inside their homes

in tears because men have cursed them out because they weren’t backing into their driveways fast enough. We need more police presence in this area.” Another resident named Elizabeth said the situation has gotten to a point of threats being made. “Two weeks ago, someone followed me down Beach 61st and came up on the side of me and stared me down in a threatening manner. As soon as I picked up my phone to record them, he took off. This is not just about speeding anymore. This is an issue about being harassed because you’re not going fast enough. Enough is enough. We keep hearing we’re going to do something, the Department of Transportation (DOT) even made recommendations, but nothing is happening,” she said. On Tuesday night, something

finally happened. After public speaking, Chris Tedesco of CB14’s Transportation Committee kicked off his report, focusing on this very issue impacting Beach 61st Street. In his report, he summarized the results of a January 16 committee meeting with the DOT, which had provided some options for changes to the area to deter speeding. Tedesco explained that a change that had already been decided on was to add speed bumps to the road, but with many driveways and other obstacles, the block would only allow for two. Also, they wouldn’t be installed immediately because broader options were still on the table that could change the need for speed humps. Tedesco then explained the two opContinued on page 9


THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 2019

The Rockaway Times

CB14 VOTES FOR BEACH 61ST Continued from Page 8 tions presented by the DOT. Option One included a simple change that would turn Beach 61st Street, between the boulevard and Larkin Avenue, into a one-way northbound street instead of the current southbound direction. Ideally this would slow down traffic as cars would no longer be able to speed right through the whole block with one half of the block going north and the other going south. Option Two was more comprehensive and included drastic changes. This would require changing Beach 61st between the boulevard and Larkin Avenue to a northbound road; change Beach 61st between Larkin and Beach Front Road into a southbound road; change Beach 60th, between Larkin and Beach Front Road to a one-way southbound road, and changing Larkin Avenue, between Beach 59th

and Beach 60th to a one-way eastbound road. In regards to safety, DOT recommended option two. However, the Transportation Committee preferred option one, as it wouldn’t call for such a drastic change, and they found option two to create an awkward situation as traffic coming from Beach Front Road would no longer be able to make a left on to Beach 60th Street and cars would instead have to make a K-turn back on Beach Front Road and head in the opposite direction. With this, the committee recommended starting with option one and monitoring the conditions to see if it made a big improvement without such a drastic change to the roads. Neighbors of the block took issue with this. They claimed they held their own meeting with other neighbors on the block and decided that they preferred option two as it would most effectively deter traffic from the block. However it wasn’t clear if residents from Beach 60th Street were

on board with this plan. CB member John Cori brought this up and recommended putting a vote on hold until another meeting was held with residents. CB District Manager Jon Gaska advised against this, as it would delay any changes being made and the residents have already waited a long time for something to be done. As a result, CB14 decided to side with the Beach 61st residents, and a motion was made to approve of Option Two. A vote was held and seven people chose to abstain as they felt they didn’t have enough information, but a majority “yes” vote carried the motion. As DOT has been on top of CB14, waiting for their decision, it is likely the changes will be made quickly. CB14 also requested work to be done quickly to avoid the moratorium of no construction occurring during the summer months, so it is expected these changes will go into effect before summer. Tedesco’s report concluded

Page 9 with extensive updates made to the Beach 108th Street reconstruction plan, which will be formally presented at a future CB14 meeting. Also, a letter was sent in regards to the Joseph Addabbo capital bridge project, and a concern about parking signs near Beach 116th Street was addressed. Signs will be replaced once the resurfacing of the roads is complete. The meeting continued with reports from CB14’s Parks and Public Safety Committee, which recapped summer updates and the Redfern Playground project, which is fully supported by the community; the Economic Development Committee, which recapped the meeting regarding the courthouse and the results of a business survey; and an Education and Youth Services Committee report, which included an extensive list of issues and updates regarding area schools. The next CB14 meeting is expected to be held on Tuesday, May 14.

SI Teacher’s Murder Has Local Connection

Last week, the body of Jeanine Cammarata, a Staten Island teacher and mother of three, was found scorched in a storage facility on Long Island. However, it is suspected she was killed in Rockaway. On March 30, Cammarata told her loved ones that she was heading to her estranged husband’s home to get her two children. A few days before, she had filed for divorce from Michael Cammarata. Michael Cammarata lived with his pregnant

girlfriend, Ayisha Egea, at Arverne View on Beach 56th Street, according to the Staten Island Advance. According to a report by the New York Post, the couple allegedly killed Jeanine at the Rockaway apartment sometime between when Jeanine was last seen alive on March 30 and Monday, April 1. Jeanine was officially reported missing on Tuesday, April 2. Video shows Cammarata and his girlfriend leaving the building with a large bag. They are again seen on video with the same bag, near the storage facility in Staten Island, where Jeanine’s body was found on Thursday, April 4. On Friday, April 5, Michael Cammarata and Egea were both charged with second-degree murder, tampering with evidence and concealing a human corpse.

Longtime Ciro’s Pizza Man John Mannino Bids Rockaway, ‘Arrivederci!’ By Kami-Leigh Agard

Since 1982, John Mannino has been dishing up deliciously handcrafted pizza and Italian cuisine to his beloved Rockaway customers. However, after almost four decades of living and working in the community he loves, he’s decided to finally hang up his apron, and return to his family home with his wife, Kim Mannino, in Sicily, Italy. Giovanni Battista Mannino grew up in Torretta, a mountainous small town located in the metropolitan city of Palermo in Sicily. Mannino said that his family were farmers, and that farm life was all he knew, but was yearning for something more. “I was young and wanted to see the world beyond Torretta. Farm life is all I knew, and really wanted to experience a different life in America. So at age 19, I got my plane ticket to come to NYC,” he said.

John Manino Mannino, back in the day.

Mannino said when he arrived at the airport, immigration immediately took him in and gave him a tuberculosis shot, and a green card. “In those days, immigration used to do everything right there in the airport. The immigration officer asked him his name, and he proudly stated, “Giovanni Battista Mannino.” However, when he looked at the paper, the officer wrote something different. “I kept trying to explain my correct

name, but all he wrote was ‘John Mannino.’ So now, here I am in a new country with a new name. This is why most people just know me as John. It’s my American name.” For Mannino, it was the first of many changes to come. First, he had to learn the language of his new city. Mannino said it took him three months to learn English, and then he started working in construction, but then switched gears, and came to Rockaway to work with his cousin at Rockaway Pizza, which was located on Beach 115th Street. “I was hired as a dish washer, but then I saw how much money the guys making the pizza were earning, so I said to myself, ‘I’m going to learn how to make pizza so I can make money like them. I would just go in the back, and try to knead the dough, and carefully watch what the other guys were doing,” Mannino said. Then in 1982, he stared working at the Original Ciro’s on Beach 116th Street. “I worked with Sal Licata at Ciro’s and began not just making pizza,

but also Italian cuisine. “In those days, because Playland was open, Rockaway was always packed with people. We were so busy, not just with visitors, but people in the neighborhood, who loved our food. The kids would come on their skateboards and hang out in front. Rockaway was so lively then. However, looking back, I really don’t think the community has changed much. For me the community is like a big family. Now those ‘kids,’ have children of their own and some even have grandchildren. I’m truly going to miss their faces and seeing them every day. After almost four decades living and working in the community, moving permanently back home to Torretta is definitely going to be a lifestyle change, but as much as I’ll miss Rockaway, I’m looking forward to going home,” Mannino said. When asked what inspired him to make the move, Mannino explained that he wants to be there for his father and mother. “My parents are still alive and are strong, but farm work is hard. My father, Carlo, is 84 years old and recently had a stroke, and my mother, Cecilia, is 84. On their farm, they grow olives and rear sheep, lambs and chickens. It’s hard work, so I think it’s time that I go home and take over for my papà and mamma, and tend the farm. My wife, Kim, is going to be with me, so what more do I need? Life will be good,” Mannino said. Mannino’s last day at Ciro’s is Sunday, April 28, and within a few days after, he and Kim will be saying their final goodbye to Rockaway and fly out to Torretta. Kim admits she is nervous about the change, but is excited about the adventures ahead. “I’m a New Yorker, so this is a pretty daunting new journey for me, but I love Torretta and John’s family, so it will just take time for me to adapt to a completely new life.

However Kim says she’s proud of the reputation John has built here, boasting about the awards John has won for his community work with the youth in Rockaway. “I’m proud of what John accomplished here in Rockaway. He used to

teach the art of making pizza with students from St. Francis de Sales and has participated in beach cleanups with the local children. He doesn’t like to talk too much about himself, but I know he’s truly made his mark in Rockaway,” Kim said. Mannino’s co-workers, Lorenzo and Mario, said they are beyond happy for John, but sad to see him go. Lorenzo said, “We will miss very much. John is family. I wish him all the best on his retirement. It’s good that he gets to go home and take care of his family. It’s a beautiful thing.” And as for Mario, he wishes John, buono fortuna (good luck). “I hope that he comes back and pays us a visit,” Mario said. Giovanni Battista Mannino, your Rockaway family will miss you. Torna presto a trovarci! Come again to visit us soon!

A Sticky Situation Dear Editor: The April 4 article, “What In Tarnation?” stated that tar was first observed on our ocean beach Thursday, March 28 as a result of the recent oil spill caused by a leak in the fuel tank of the Dublin Express container ship. Like many Rockaway residents, I frequently walk the beach and had observed thousands of gannets migrating along the

THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 2019 ocean from Thursday, March 28 to Saturday, March 30. I hope none of them were injured by this spill. We should all be proud of how much our coastal environment has improved over the years. Seals regularly rest on our beaches, dolphins and whales are seen all summer long, along with the tourists that they attract. We now live in a truly beautiful place, thanks to the decades of smart policies that have cleaned our waterways. Yet, it would take very little to destroy all this. The federal government is at this time planning to open the Atlantic Ocean to offshore drilling while also trying to weaken safety regulations developed after the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill. This is alarming! Oil doesn't observe state boundaries, and a spill anywhere along the Atlantic coast could be a spill everywhere along the Atlantic Coast. New Yorkers must oppose the federal government's risky new drilling plan. Last week’s spill

was upsetting, but a spill like BP's Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico could erase all the beauty and the tourist dollars our community has come to enjoy. Joan Flynn

Engine 266â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rescueâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Holli the Dog By Katie McFadden

FDNYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Engine 266 in Rockaway Beach does more than rescue peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;they also rescue dogs. Holli of the Holland House, a pitbull/ boxer mix, recently got off probation. And while she still might not be ready to ride along on the fire truck, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly found her place in the hearts of her rescuers. According to Firefighter George Cuello of Engine 266, the guys of the firehouse located at 92-20 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, had been entertaining the idea of getting a firehouse dog for a few years. The firehouse hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a dog since the 90s, with a short stay of a Dalmatian that left an unwanted gift in the shoe of a chief that it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take a liking to. The dog soon after became

someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal pet, but the firehouse wanted to resurrect the idea of having a firehouse dog once again. A little more than a year ago, Cuello went to a shelter in Brooklyn with his son, to pick

out a possible new firehouse recruit. Before going into the rescue, Cuello explained to his son that they should go through all of the dogs before making a decision instead of settling on the first one. But it only took a few steps into the shelter for an adorable face to make Cuello abandon his own advice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As soon as I walk in, I see this one dog laying there, looking up at me with puppy eyes, and I fell in love. My son was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;but you just told me not to pick the first one!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;But look at how cute she is, I love her.â&#x20AC;? Cuello and his son did try to stick to the plan and continued looking at all the dogs, but the face of the young grey and white pitbull/boxer mix, named Kola at the time, had already captured their hearts. Cuello brought the dog home

for a few days before introducing her to the guys at the firehouse in February 2018, but as soon as he did, they knew the dog would be there to stay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys fell in love with her and that was pretty much it,â&#x20AC;? Cuello said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s here for life.â&#x20AC;? The firehouse is now Holliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 24/7 home. Cuello explained that with the firefighters having differContinued on page 15

ENGINE 266'S RESCUE Continued from Page 14 ing opinions on a firehouse pet, a vote was held, as with all firehouse decisions. The majority decided Holli was cut out for the job. Cuello kept a record of the vote so the guys couldn’t change their minds later on. Early on, some may have had second guesses, as the oneyear-old dog proved to be a bit of a handful. “It was hard at first because she was still a puppy. She started ripping up couches and some were thinking maybe this was a bad idea, but we got her a cage and started training her and getting her used to the firehouse,” Cuello said. Holli has since made the place her own. “Now she has her own little couch, the one she ripped apart. We wound up cutting it in half and now she’s got her own couch,” Cuello said. However, she’ll sometimes nap with the guys, and she’s picked her favorites. “She knows when the tours change, so she knows who’s coming when. She goes out to the window and watches everyone coming in, and she must think, ‘oh, it’s that guy’ and she’ll say ‘woof,’ but when she sees me or some of the other guys she loves, she jumps off the couch and runs to the door and greets them,” Cuello said. Besides giving up a couch, the guys have had to make some other adjustments with Holli around. “The first summer we had her, the door was open because we were cleaning the rig and she ran right out on to Rockaway Beach Boulevard. Luckily, there were no buses or cars coming. Now I tell the guys not to leave the door open,” he said. Holli has also decided when the guys can watch TV. “We were watching some Netflix documentary and there’s about 10 minutes left and she starts going crazy, barking, jumping. This usually means one of three things; she wants to eat, go out, or play. I knew she had eaten already, so I go to let her out and that wasn’t it. She grabbed her toy and starts running around. The other guys had to tell me

THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 2019 the end of the documentary,” Cuello said. There’s one important time that Holli knows not to get in the way—in an emergency. You won’t find her on the fire truck. “When the tone alarm comes on and we have to go on a run, she’s not in our way. We run to the fire truck and she runs to her couch. We don’t have to worry about running her over,” Cuello said. While a good thing, Cuello believes this stems from a past of abuse. “She doesn’t like loud noises. I think she was traumatized. She runs to her couch until the noise stops. You can tell she was abused because if you yell ‘stop,’ she responds as if she’s going to be hit,” he said. The signs of abuse were also made evident when the guys noticed early on that Holli had a limp. “We called the adoption center and they didn’t know anything about it, so we took her to the vet and it turns out her right leg was broken when she was a puppy and it never healed properly,” Cuello said, adding that Holli’s condition has since improved. Knowing the young dog had possibly come from a dark past, those at Engine 266 thought it was fitting to give her a new name for a new beginning. “Her original name was Kola, but after we noticed her limping, we decided she needed a new name,” Cuello said. The guys started to brainstorm, with fire-related names like Smoky, being tossed around, until someone suggested Holli. “Our firehouse is nicknamed Holland House because the area, now Rockaway Beach, used to be called Holland. We thought that was pretty good and it stuck,” he said. And it seems Holli has stuck on everyone. “She’s become popular around here. Now with the weather being warmer, a lot of people come up and ask about her. The cops next door love her. She even has her own Instagram account,” Cuello said. That account—@ holli_fdny has more than 1,000 followers. If you’d like to keep up with Holli’s antics, make sure to give her a follow!

Not very practical. This road in Fort Tilden, that is. People might as well walk along the shore than crunch their way on top of these shells. What is the purpose of this path? We heard a new composite would replace the concrete road at Shore Road. Not easy to see, but it’s there, is fencing keeping people from another protected bird area.

The Can Collectors By Ryan Schwach

Once a week, Rockaway residents put out the recycling, a mundane task that everyone does without a second thought. You take it out, next morning it’s gone, and that's that. In the case of some however, recycling night is more than just an item on a list of chores. For Frank and David, two men who spend many of their nights traversing the streets of Rockaway, collecting cans and bottles to redeem for coins, it means a lot more. “I’ve seen the neighborhood change maybe three times since I've been doing this,” said Frank, a 57-year-old lifelong New Yorker, whose family once operated concessions at the Playland amusement park, and has been collecting Rockaway’s cans since 1987. A habit he said he picked up from “curiosity,” and has been doing ever since. David,

Frank’s friend and can-collecting colleague has been doing it for around 15 years. “When [Frank’s] not feeling well, I'm the one he trusts to go and pick it up,” he said. The

two met nearly 30 years ago while living around the corner from each other on Beach 99th Street. While both now live outside of Rockaway, they still meet up to get to work in their

old stomping grounds, which they know well. Frank and David are one of several men who collect cans on the west end of the peninsula. Frank currently operates from Beach 126th to Beach 130th, mostly sticking to the middle blocks, and David scavenges from 130th up to 134th. According to the duo, there are around nine men who have split up Rockaway’s curbs in somewhat of a turf system, with each man responsible for his own blocks. “We respect each other,” David said. For Frank, it is part of a weekly routine to come down to Rockaway about three days each week, collect cans, sleep, get lunch, and then go down to the Key Food on Beach 88th Street, where he spends a few hours redeeming the recyclables, one by one, for five cents apiece. These days, he says he Continued on page 19

THE CAN COLLECTORS Continued from Page 18 can pull in around $265 on a good day in Belle Harbor, and “Back in the day,” he could bring in around $500 for two days work. “I’m happy with $200,” he said. After collecting for as long as they have, they get to know the community they work, from how each house puts out their recycling, to what each house drinks. “I could tell you what’s in a can before I get there. I know the people,” Frank said. According to Frank and David, who have also scavenged downtown, the most common drink tends to vary, but Belle Harbor residents specifically have a larger number of water and seltzer bottles, and a much larger occurrence of recycled wine. “A lot of wine drinkers up here,” Frank joked. Frank is a self-proclaimed expert on sanitation law, knowing what to do to avoid getting himself in trouble, or for the homeowner whose recycling he is going through, a ticket. Although many of the can collectors follow these rules, and the unwritten ones among the community, some don’t. The duo described the issues with new out-of-town collectors who come in and don’t follow the rules, and give those just trying to make some money, a bad reputation. David described a man who got him in some trouble because the man was going onto people’s properties to collect, a practice not just illegal, but frowned upon by the community of collectors. “I have

respect for the houses in the community,” David said. The other problem is with some who tear open recycling bags to get what they want, then throw it back. “I don’t rip bags open,” David said. “I don’t want you guys getting a ticket.” While this Rockaway Times reporter was talking to them, I watched Frank go through my own recycling, open the bag, take what he needs, tie it back up, and put the bag right back as if it was never taken. The unruly scavengers are only one of the problems men like Frank and David deal with. Frank is one of the many New Yorkers on public assistance, and he says the $90 check he gets from the government is not nearly enough to pay for what he needs. Can collecting allows him to supplement his income. Since Hurricane Sandy, Frank has commuted to Rockaway all the way from a place in the Bronx to collect cans, but starting the day this article is published, he begins a new stay at what he calls a “Nicer place,” Section 8 housing in Flushing. And both men say they’ll continue making the trip to Rockaway to collect on familiar turf. Although it is not what many would picture as a great way to make money, Frank and David take pride in their work, they do it, and they do it the right way. Frank says people tend to support what he does as he “helps keep the environment clean,” by recycling. Although, putting out the recycling seems like just a regular, annoying chore, for guys like Frank and David, your trash is their treasure.

ARTISTIC CHILD Continued from Page 16 which I founded over two-anda-half years ago. My first guest to express his heartfelt experiences, feelings and desires for our autism community is my daughter’s dad, Rado Rafiringa. Rado is not just an awesome dad with the patience of Job, but a great sounding board and support for all my efforts and goals to build autism awareness and acceptance in our community. Authored by Rado F. Rafiringa As a teen growing up on Madagascar’s red soil, my only concept of autism was rather vague. If you asked me then about autism awareness, I would have simply mentioned a documentary about it I saw once on TV. I had no idea what an autistic person was like, and back then, I probably couldn’t be bothered if someone brought the word, ‘autism,’ up. Then my daughter came along and

was diagnosed to be on the spectrum. Today, I would describe autism awareness as knowing that E.T. lives in my house, and experiencing all the good, weird, and awful that comes with it. It means having to consciously, and constantly adapt my concept of “normal” to accommodate my daughter’s alien ways. She started talking in single words, and from the age of three became non-verbal, and communicates only with body language and grunts whenever she gets out of her world and wants something. It also means that I have to explain and apologize when she acts in ways that slaps polite society’s norms in the back of the head without warning, so that no harm or ill will come to her. Most of the time it works, people let it go. Some people are less understanding, but so far no one has harmed her on my watch. Autism awareness is that cold feeling of dread, when she suddenly runs across the

street and almost gets hit by a car. It is also knowing that my daughter is straightforward and unambiguous in her actions, which makes being around her at times far easier than being around “normal” folks. She always makes her intent known and presents herself the way she means to. Autism awareness is taking it all, and retaining the ability to remain a sane, happy, and flawed human. From where I stand, she does not worry me, the world we live in does. It is a world where the seeds of evil are sown and thrive on ignorance. While autism awareness starts at home, those of us who live around autistic people cannot afford to keep it there. We have a duty to extend our awareness to the rest of society, in order for our autistic kith and kin to have a fair shot at life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It also means we have to constantly challenge our autistic loved ones to adapt to the world they were born in,

The Rockaway Times along with its complexities and nuances. Autism awareness is showing the world by example that living with E.T. is feasible and normal. Until the turn of the century, gay marriage was not feasible, nor was being gay considered “normal.” Today, only the ignorant are trying to kill gay people for being different, and Jussie Smollett even had to fake it. So there it is folks, spread the awareness around, it is for the best. I talk about autism to open doors into the reality of our lives as caregivers, build understanding, acceptance and growth of our loved ones with autism. Share your thoughts by emailing ourartisticchild@outlook.com or check out Rockaway Beach Autism Families Facebook page. Also feel free to come to our next support group meeting on Thursday, April 18, 7 p.m. at Knights of Columbus (333 Beach 90th Street). Join us in “Turning the tide for our autism community, one wave at a time.”

The Rockaway Times Spring Fashion Guide TIPS FROM POLLY & ESTHER By Kami-Leigh Agard

Spring has finally sprung, and with the warmer weather, many locals gleefully unshed the layers and finally break out the flip flops. However, if you’re looking to spice up your wardrobe, The Rockaway Times Fashion Guide is a must-read. In this month-long feature, local style gurus give the goods on what’s trending and where to shop—with the added pluses of preserving that unmistakably cool Rockaway beach vibe AND supporting a local business. In this week’s installation, we spoke with Jackie Roth, manager of local clothing a lot of clothing and accessoboutique, Polly & Esther. ries from California designers, hailing from beach towns like Rockaway. So at Polly & Esther, folks come in and immediately feel that cool Rockaway beach vibe,” Roth said. Here are some of Roth’s suggestions on how you can breathe spontaneity into your wardrobes, while maintaining the true essence of what seaside living in Rockaway is all about. Baja hoodie As you walk into Polly & Esther, there’s an off-white baja hoodie that seems to scream, “Take me to the beach!” This top is accented with asymmetrical blocked stripes in shades of blue, pink and gray. The sleeves, hood and sweep opening are edged with lace. Pair it with a layered necklace, bucket, floppy or fedora hat, and a cute straw tote bag, and you’re comfortably dressed for a casual evening with friends. Roth said the baja hoodies are so popular that they continually have to restock them. “People love the airiness of the fabric and the mellow colors. We have them in a variety of colors, definitely very Rockaway-esque.”

According to Roth, who is currently studying Business-Fashion Buying and Merchandising at Nassau Community College, this spring/summer season is all about sporting denim, statement accessories, breathy baja hoodies, stylish active wear, macramé and tie-dye, jumpsuits and pants in a variety of leg shapes, resort wear, neon colors and a cornucopia of prints. “A lot of grunge styles from the 90s are making waves with a huge comeback, like double denim, tie-dye and baja hoodies. However, it’s all about mixing and matching with the must Jumping Jumpsuits of a bold accessory or print. Fun fact. The first-ever jumpEurope’s fashion runways dictate the styles of the season, suit—also called the boiler but that being said, we carry suit—was created in 1919 as a

garment for parachuters and was worn by factory women during WWII. Of course, the boiler suit has stylistically evolved since, and offers a range of leg shapes including wide, straight, harem and casual fit. The pro of the look is that it’s effortless. Some jumpers are even sleeveless with spaghetti straps. According to Roth, this is an item you can wear to work with a well-cut cropped jacket, blazer or long duster coat. Take the jacket off, and you’re ready for a night on the town. She also emphasizes that accessories really give some oomph to the look. “We have the jumper in so many prints and leg shapes. I recommend adding a chunky wide belt and a layered necklace. Depending on the print, you can even get a little fashion forward with a snakeskin or bold color belt,” Roth said. Prints are Poppin’! From leopard, snakeskin, tribal, stripes, polka dots, camo, florals and more—prints are popping up on dresses, jumpers, skirts, blouses, trousers, belts and swim suits. Don’t be afraid to make a fashion statement by mismatching them or adding some volume with a belt or jewelry. Polly & Esther carries such a wide variety of prints, you’ll be sure to leave with a conversation piece. Neon Brights Or Why Not Just White? Spring offers an explosion of color, so why not take it the extra mile with neon? From hot pink, blue, yellow, green—Polly & Esther offers neon-colored items in a variety of hues that will be sure to get you spotted. The boutique even has neon-colored tassel earrings which definitely will spark a conversation. Also, why not consider pairing neon with white? Roth said, “White accents many colors. Even wearing all white looks beautiful. People tend to shy away from wearing white, but I think it

really pops on a variety of skin tones.” Let’s Get Crafty According to Roth, crochet, macramé and tie-dye give off that carefree artsy look. From light sweaters, trousers and bags, the boutique offers an ornate array that fits your dreams of resort wear on a budget.

Digging Double Denim? The temps are indeed up, but brisk enough to still need a light jacket. So why not pair a denim jacket with a high-waist jean or shorts, denim skirt or even a bralette? Polly & Esther offers a wide variety of denim styles. When asked why she loves working at Polly & Esther, Roth said, “I love that I can bring my knowledge of fashion that I am studying at school here. I also enjoy assisting customers, who continually come back and even call to find out about new merchandise. Our items are good quality and really affordable, which is why people keep returning. I emphasize to customers that personal style is not about following trends, but making a statement about who you are.” Roth’s views fall in line with sentiments popularly expressed by 97-yearold NYC fashion icon, Iris Apfel: "Fashion you can buy, but style you possess. The key to style is learning who you are… It's about self-expression and, above all, attitude.” Polly & Esther is located at 414 Beach 129th Street. The boutique offers a 10% discount for college students. For more info, visit the boutique or follow them on Facebook.

DAMN THE TORPEDOS BRING DOWN THE HOUSE Spring was in the air on Saturday night, April 6, drawing out an enthusiastic crowd to Springman Hall at St. Camillus for the sixth Bugalou concert this season. The action started before the music, with large screens brought in to view the NCAA Final Four games, providing a great look at the controversial plays at the end of the Virginia-Auburn game. Rockaway favorite, Wine With Sue, hit the stage at full speed, leading off with CCR's Down on the Corner, and displaying their versatility with their adept handling of material ranging from the Bee Gees to Led Zeppelin. Following a brief intermission, Damn The Torpedoes put on an unparalleled presentation of the music of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, running through 25 songs over the course of more than two hours. Highlights included Breakdown, Refugee, The Wait-

ing, Free Fallin,' and a rousing version of American Girl that ended up with audience members dancing on the stage with the band, before closing with Don't Come Around Here No More. The room was full of energy for the entire night. Next up is the season finale with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Felix Cavaliere's Rascals. Good Lovin', Groovin', People Got to Be Free, How Can I Be Sure, It's a Beautiful Morningâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;these are just a few of the classic Rascals hits that included three #1s, five Top 10s, and fifteen Hot 100 singles, as well as five Gold albums, that led to worldwide fame and acclaim, and induction into the Hall of Fame in 1997. This will be the highlight show of the Bugalou series and tickets are already moving quickly. Go to www. bugaloumusic.com and visit facebook.com/bugaloumusic for daily video postings.

Ask the DOC

By Peter Galvin, MD

Recent years have seen dramatic increases in the incidence of chronic diseases like diabetes, inflammatory bowel diseases, and obesity. Several months ago, a microbiologist from NYU Langone published an interesting theory to explain the rising disease rates. His theory is that the loss of diversity in the bacteria that live in our intestinal tract is to blame, and the cause is the use and overuse of antibiotics. More than 40 percent of U.S. adults are obese, and almost threefourths are obese or overweight. In addition, childhood obesity rates are rising, going from 10 percent from 1988 to 1994 to almost 18 percent from 2013 to 2016. His theory is that the bacteria that live in and on us are not random, but rather passed down from generation to generation. Interacting with each other

THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 2019

Page 31

Antibiotics and with us in complex ways, our bacteria form a diverse community called the microbiome. They are acquired in a standard, choreographed way and their composition in children comes to resemble that of adults by age three. Years ago, bacteria were transferred from mother to child during vaginal birth, from breast feeding and skin-to-skin contact, and from motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouth by kissing. Today, with widespread cesarean delivery, bottle feeding, extensive bathing (especially with anti-bacterial soaps), and the use of antibiotics, the human ecology has changed, and the transmission and maintenance of ancestral microbes has been altered. More than 73 billion antibiotic doses are prescribed worldwide each year, or about 10 doses for each man, woman, and child on this planet, and the numbers are rising. U.S. children receive an average of 2.7 antibiotic courses by age two, and 10.9 by age 10. More

than 50 percent of women receive antibiotics during pregnancy or perinatally. Repeated antibiotic exposure is common in early life and is often not medically justified. And, of course, many foods that we eat contain antibiotics. For decades, the food industry has added antibiotics to animal feed to make the animals gain weight. Laboratory studies back this up. Mice exposed to antibiotics had more body fat at 10 weeks (32 percent) than control mice (22 percent). A single course of a macrolide antibiotic (i.e. Cipro) had longterm effects on the microbial population and on the hostâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immune system. In non-obese mice, treatment with antibiotics early in life altered the gut microbiome, immune system, and accelerated the onset of Type 1 diabetes. In one Dutch study, the incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in children increased with early-life antibiotic exposure, and

the more antibiotics the child received, the higher was the incidence of IBD. In a study done at VA hospitals, the top 10 percent of physicians prescribed 90 percent of all antibiotics. Physicians in Sweden prescribe 60 percent fewer antibiotics than U.S. doctors. Doctors are often put in a difficult situation by patients who seek an antibiotic prescription. If the doctor does not prescribe antibiotics for what he/she perceives to be a viral infection, the patient may feel put off and may complain or change doctors. For this reason and others, it is often simpler for the doctor to just prescribe them. So, the next time you have a scratchy throat or congestion, if your doctor feels that antibiotics are unwarranted, remember that the doctor is trying to do the right thing for you.

Change Is A Challenge Change is inevitable but often we resist with the natural flow of life and choose to suffer when changes come our way. We strive to keep things the same, but the truth is the only thing that stays constant is change itself. Learning to flow in life with all the changes that happens can be critical in surviving without too much stress. Nothing stays the same, we are constantly evolving. There are

losses and gains. The pains of growing older are real for so many. The fear of sickness and loss of independence can be very scary and unsettling. Aging is for the strong and it is our hope that family will be close by to look out for our care. That being said, I am going to make plans for my future so no one can make decisions that may not be in my best interest. I may never need the

plan but being proactive, knowing that a change can happen at any moment, gives me control of my life. My plan is to live a long, healthy life but I know nothing is guaranteed. We are creatures of habit and we do not always welcome changes, especially if they cause suffering. We resist the changes that come in our lives and often think, why me? There is a path for each one of us and we can only control the outcome to the best of our ability. We may be able to improve the quality of our journey by learning to flow with the everchanging tides and accepting what comes our way. God has a plan and I believe he is always with us. Fighting changes are like running uphill against the wind. Try flowing with the change of life and you might feel like the wind is at your back, with the warm sun glistening on your face. Learning to be with what comes your way will help ease whatever suffering you are going through. It is not easy, but one can only try to do their best in any situation.

The Rockaway Times Change is a challenge. It is overcoming fear and facing the unknown. An attitude of gratitude can change everything and open you to life itself. Letting go of the past and looking forward to the future without attaching to the outcome can be helpful. Embracing each moment and living in the now will lead to easeful living. The Peace of Wild Things by Wendell Berry “When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time, I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.” May you be healthy, happy, free of suffering and live with ease.

Spring Cleaning Your Computer? Beware of Tech Scams By Gille Ann Rabbin, Esq., CIPP/US

Spring has sprung, and some are undertaking the annual ritual of spring cleaning. Closets, drawers, bathroom vanities, garages, and even cars are purged. But before you turn to cleaning your computer, beware of tech support scams that can put you and your computer at risk. These scams are impostor scams designed to make you think there’s something wrong with your computer that needs to be cleaned up, like malware or a computer bug, because it threatens your computer’s security. Scammers pose as companies that can repair this problem, but it is actually non-existent. In 2018, the Federal Trade Commission received almost 150,000 tech support scam reports, and has brought actions against some sham companies. Many reports are from elderly consumers, as this population

is often targeted. Scams take different forms. Typically, scammers call or send pop-up ads telling you that you have a computer security problem. They often impersonate large legitimate companies, like Microsoft or Dell. Their goal is to get you to pay for services you don’t need. When a scammer contacts you by phone, you may be asked to give remote access to your computer so they can run a “test,” after which the scammer advises there’s a problem you need to pay to fix, possibly by downloading their pricey (and unnecessary) software. Phone scammers can spoof your Caller ID, which can make it look like they’re calling from a legitimate company. When scammers initiate contact via a pop-up window on your screen, they send a message that looks like an error message from your operating system or antivirus software. The pop-up may display logos from trusted companies or websites.

ORTHODONTIST John J. Roche DMD MSEd. 122-10 Rockaway Beach Blvd. 718-634-9700 • Participating Provider for all insurances/PPO’s • Convenient Weekend Hours • Free Consultation • Treating Adults & Children • Convenient Payment Plans • Board Certified Lifetime American Board of Orthodontics

The message warns of a security problem and urges you to call a phone number for assistance. Additionally, scammers get their fraudulent sites to appear in online search results or ads for their sham companies. Their intent is that you’ll reach out to them for “support” using the contact information listed. In another version, a scammer calls a victim of a previous support scam to check on the consumer’s satisfaction with the earlier service. When the consumer says he/she is dissatisfied, the scammer offers a refund. Other scammers call to say their company is going out of business and is providing refunds for services that won’t be provided as a result. Once consumers give personal financial information to receive the refund, the scammers commit identity theft and steal their money. If someone is pressuring you to fix your computer, don’t panic and immediately accept their offer. Here are some tips to avoid victimization:

• If you get an unsolicited tech support phone call, hang up immediately. • Don’t call a phone number in a pop-up window. • Don’t click on notifications, including in texts or emails, advising you to scan your computer or download software. • Don’t allow access to your computer for tech support unless you verify it’s legitimate support. • Remember: a legitimate tech support company won’t contact you to tell you your computer has a problem. • Don’t provide financial information to anyone who wants to give you a refund for tech support services. If you need assistance with a computer problem, initiate contact with a trustworthy individual or company. You can find tech support through word of mouth or a store that sells tech equipment (for example, Apple’s Genius Bar). Also many software companies offer assistance by phone or online.

Point Of View THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG IN UNDERSTANDING GLOBAL WARMING AND CLIMATE CHANGE By Kathy Lord Nicolosi

Global warming is the warming of the earth, which much research has determined has been exacerbated due to emissions created by the burning of fossil fuels. Picture the earth with a glass dome around it (like a greenhouse) the gases (carbon emissions) rise and can’t permeate the glass cover so they bounce back to the earth causing the “greenhouse effect,” thus creating global warming. Global warming and climate change are not the same thing. Global warming (the warming of the earth) is one of the factors that is accelerating climate change (a global change in the climate of the world.) Causing the melting of polar ice caps, droughts, flooding, more destructive storms and hurricanes, etc. Big oil companies actually created a “Global Climate Coalition” (1) into which they invested millions of dollars in order to deny to the public that global warming and climate change were a problem. The oil companies know that carbon emissions are a problem, but if we use renewable energies instead of fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal), then the oil industries will ultimately lose billions of dollars. It should come as no surprise, then, why they might refuse to acknowledge that global warming and climate change are real and a global threat. Research confirms that over the last decade, the carbon gas emissions have been warming the earth. The oceans absorb carbon from the air, which causes the ocean waters to warm. The warm ocean waters intensify storms and hurricanes making them much more destructive forc-

es as we have witnessed over and over again in the last few years alone (2). During the 1950s, with substantial evidence that smoking led to cancer, the tobacco industry founded the “Tobacco Industry Research Committee” and employed a firm called Hill & Knowlton, whose job was to sell “DOUBT” about these claims to the public. The health of the individual was of no concern (3). The oil industry has done and continues to do something similar in regards to the scientific evidence that carbon emissions are dangerous to the earth (4). Global warming is a “global” issue for which all countries need to participate to help solve the problem. This is why the refusal of the United States to join world organizations in helping to prevent global warming/climate change, or to withdraw from such organizations which we have previously joined, is so problematic. The entire world is being affected by this earth warming trend, and almost all other industrial nations are in agreement about creating coalitions that could help to “save the planet” from this kind of impending catastrophe. The United States’ per capita is rated #2 in carbon emissions. You can Google a chart of emissions per country here. (See footnote (5)). During the 2016 presidential campaign, fossil fuel companies injected more than $100 million into the presidential campaign. Therefore we should not be surprised that the new administration pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Accords on the first day of June 2017. There is no reason why we should all not support

Dear Enchantress, I feel cheap all the time. I am always the one who wants to split the bill down to the dollar. I re-gift everything and I have a really hard time buying my kids’ teachers gifts. I think people make fun of me behind my back, but I can't seem to change! UGH! My parents are cheap, too, and they are pretty severe.Their house is being held together with glue and rubber bands, they take the ketchups and napkins from diners, and I'm mortified, and yet, it's worse because I am the same! My kids are young, so I don't think they know my issues yet. My husband shakes his head. He's a bit ahead of me, but pretty cheap, too. He will spend money on sports things though. I work, so I have my own money, but I am so frugal and I'm worried I'll turn into my parents even more and worse, my kids will be like me! Help! Dear Cheap Charlie, You are so brave to out yourself and own your cheapness. I am here to celebrate you! Good for you for outing yourself, this is not an easy one, also I want to celebrate you for owning your cheapness and your AWARENESS! When you are aware of anything, it is only then you can make a CHOICE! There are many reasons to be cheap, whether it's unconscious or the person is not aware, it's painful for others to be around this person, the lack and scarcity mindset can leak out and affect how people regard you as a friend and a loved one. I will not advise you to go out and spend a lot of money. But I will suggest making small donations to a charity of your choosing, start small.

Making your money go to places that really NEED your help would be a great start. Some causes will send you a thank you poster. I sent $18 to a charity and dedicated it to my grandparents and it's on my fridge, making me feel a loving connection to them. It can be something you do with your children, have a pushkeh (how my grandmother would say it in Yiddish), where you drop change inside. Decide with your kids who and where the money will go to, and when it's full, take them to either the bank or the place to make the donation. When it's a project like this, it's easier. As for your internal workings, I would advise you to have a nightly gratitude check- in. Have a dedicated notebook where you write what you’re grateful for, for the day. Declaring and seeing (in writing) all the abundance that you have in your life, will take the spotlight off your money. When there is a problem somewhere, it's human nature to focus on what is broken. The gratitude is focusing on what's right! Taking out children’s books from the library about money to read with your kids, (and your inner child) so you can re-learn and re-visit your money beliefs and mindsets, along with them, will be helpful. One big homework that I will give you is, to list one hundred money moments in your life. They can be big or small moments, and make sure you write down the earliest money moment you can remember. Enjoy your dollars and make some cents! For more information on how to work with Enchantress Shane, go to www.Enchantedembodiment.com

Spotted: Havana Great Time So, what are the odds? Rockaway celebrities were spotted in Havana, Cuba last week and didn’t see each other, but both groups sent these great photos. That’s JoAnne Palmieri and Big Daddy Brennan rockin’ The Rockaway Times tee and coincidentally, Big Dan Tubridy, Jack Levithan and Sal Araimo were sporting the shirts, too. And is that the same car? Or are we going loco? One thing’s for sure—our shirts fit right in!

The Queens Beach Hotel was built around 1920 and was owned by the Reilly Bros. It was located on Beach 107th Street and the north side of Rockaway Beach Blvd. The telephone number was “Belle Harbor – 1499.” The hotel featured furnished rooms to rent all year round, a restaurant and a dance hall with an orchestra during the summer months only.

Asis’ magnetically powerful work will have you looking upward, awed by how his use of a series of cords in tension, shrewdly draws attention to the RAA’s sTudio 7 gallery’s leaking roof, which after fifteen years of ocean winds, harsh weather and Hurricane Sandy, is severely damaged. Leak Lines inspires conversation about the past, present and future of RAA, and celebrates the sTudio 7 gallery building as art.

BLACK BELTS AT WORLD CHAMPIONS KARATE CENTER Sunday, April 7, was a memorable day at the World Champions Karate Center. Two Shodan (First-Degree black Belt), and a Nidan (Second-Degree Black Belt) were tested and promoted to their new ranks. The rigorous examination consisted of knowledge of Kata (forms) and Bunkai (the application of the techniques within the forms). This means the execution of various weapons forms and their application, a self-defense component and a teaching exhibition. The three young men performed in sync, executing their Kata and weapons forms as a team. They will make a very formidable team anywhere there is competition. It was wonderful to witness such highly-polished Karate, and the spectators and parents were obviously impressed. At the same time, Yellow through Brown belt students were also being tested and were able to

watch the Black Belts in action. Juan (Nidan), Brandon and Jaydon (Shodan), have trained several years to attain this level. They are honor students at their respective schools and participate in other sports as well as internships. Congratulations to the parents and the grandparents of the Karate-ka. Visitors are welcome to see the successful program at the World Champions Karate Center, located at 112-20 Beach Channel Drive.
