Developers Present Updated Plan for Peninsula Hospital Site By Katie McFadden

“The clock officially starts now,” Councilman Donovan Richards said before a packed house at the RISE Center, where many gathered for an information session on the plan for the future of the old Peninsula Hospital site. The ULURP (Uniform Land Use Review Procedure) for the redevelopment plan has officially begun and principals, Alex Arker and Dan Moritz, from the developer, Arker Companies, were on hand on the evening of Tuesday, May 7, to present the latest details of their plan. As a Councilman, Richards explained that he and City Council will have the final say on the plan, so it is important to gather input directly from the community now. “We want to make sure we give the community a lot of say on the things they’d like to see in a specific project and we want the developers to understand the needs of the community.

want to make sure that towards the end of this process, when it comes before City Council, that I feel comfortable with your input in the plan,” Richards said. Arker first revealed their mixed-use development plan for the site in early 2018, after purchasing the property in 2016. The presentation of the latest plan showed that some changes have been made since the original plan was presented, but at Tuesday’s meeting, many pointed out that the plan still needs to be revised, including Councilman Richards.

“I’m currently not in support of the plan that has been proposed. We have a long way to go with negotiations,” Richards said. The new plan reflected a few changes since the original. For instance, the original plan included the development of 17 buildings. The new one only has 11 buildings. However, the number of units has remained the same, meaning the buildings will be taller. The developers plan to create 2,200 residential units on the less than 10-acre property. Of the 2,200 units, 1,927 would be income-restricted up to 80% of Area Median Income (AMI) to include approximately 201 units set aside for Affordable Independent Residences for Seniors, with the remaining 273 units restricted to income levels not exceeding 130% of AMI. The prior plan included 151,800 square feet of retail space, while the new plan includes nearly half as much, with 72,000 square feet of retail

space. The amount of publicly-accessible open space has also decreased from 37,600 square feet in the original plan to 24,000 square feet in the new plan. One positive change is a parking increase. The original plan called for 677 parking spaces for the residential units and the retail businesses. The new plan includes 973 parking spaces. The plan will also include a privately-owned, publicly accessible street space on Beach 52nd Street, which will allow residents to sit in or walk through and will contain retail space for local entrepreneurs to set up shop. Moritz explained that the entire development would be built in phases and the project could take 10 to 15 years to be fully completed, with an expected completion in 2034. Moritz gave an overview of the Phase 1, which will include some residential units and 40,000 square feet of retail, including a new 20,000-square-foot supermarContinued on page 5

Pipeline Project Approved Despite massive dissent, the latest Williams natural gas pipeline proposal has gotten a major approval it needs to move forward. On Friday, May 3, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved the Northeast Supply Enhancement (NESE) project. According to Williams, the NESE project, which includes 23 miles of pipeline stretching from New Jersey to an already existing pipeline in the waters off of Rockaway, will provide 400,000 dekatherms per day of additional natural gas supply to National Grid to serve the New York area in time for the 2020/2021 winter heating season. Williams says this project is a necessity as National Grid is converting about 8,000 customers per year from heating oil to natural gas in New York City and Long Island, so this project will make those conversions possible. The order issued by the Commission concludes a nearly three-year regulatory review process, ultimately determining that

the Northeast Supply Enhancement project will serve the public interest and that environmental impacts would be minimized with the implementation of mitigation measures proposed by the company and FERC. Three of the four ruling commissioners approved the project. “Natural gas is a critical component of the mix of energy sources necessary to meet the region’s growing energy needs and to help meet its aggressive clean air goals,” Williams Chief Operating Officer Micheal Dunn said. “We appreciate the Commission’s thorough review of this important infrastructure enhancement project, which ultimately will help advance New York City toward meeting the statewide carbon emissions goals outlined in the New York State Energy Plan.” The project faced heavy backlash, with more than 6,000 comments from those against the project and more than 60 local elected officials signing a letter calling on Governor Andrew Cuomo to stop the project. Many

expressed concern over the safety and environmental impacts of the project. Even one of FERC’s commissioners, Richard Glick, expressed this in his dissent, saying “Today’s order suffers from two fatal flaws, both of which are a function of the Commission’s continued refusal to consider the environmental consequences of natural gas infrastructure projects. First, the Commission again refuses to assess the significance of the project's contribution to climate change, while at the same time asserting that the project in its entirety will not have significant environmental impacts. [...] Second, the Commission refuses to identify or consider the project's reasonably foreseeable impacts on upstream or downstream [greenhouse gas] emissions. Each flaw is sufficient in itself to render today’s order inconsistent with the law, arbitrary and capricious, and not the product of reasoned decision making.” Those against the project say they aren’t surprised by the deci-

sion, but there is still time to stop it as the local governors can still have a say. Governor Cuomo and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation have until May 16 to approve or deny state permits. Governor Murphy and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection have until June 6. "As expected, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved another high-pressure interstate gas pipeline, proving once again that they are not regulators, but facilitators for the fossil fuel industry,” Kim Fraczek, Director of Sane Energy Project said. “Given that FERC will receive a large fee for this approval due to our faulty system, this is one more reason that Governor Cuomo needs to demonstrate to New Yorkers and to the nation that he is willing to stand up for our health, safety, democracy, and climate." If the governors do not veto the project, Williams says it plans to start construction on the NESE project in the fall of 2019.

DEVELOPERS PRESENT Continued from Page 2 ket. The developers are in talks with supermarket company, Western Beef, which had a say in the design, which led to some of the retail space and parking space changes in the new plan. Phase 1 will also include 296 parking spaces and investment in new storm infrastructure. Other representatives were available to talk more about some of the development’s resiliency measures and others explained the specific land use sanctions, including some zoning changes, that will be necessary to move the project forward. Following the presentation, the floor was opened to questions and concerns from attendees. Some brought up things that weren’t mentioned in the presentation like the desire for a community center and a school. Councilman Richards explained that the plan was still in the beginning stages and that these things can be discussed and added so that they’re incorporated into

THURSDAY, MAY 9, 2019 the final plan, if possible. A major concern for a few community members is the density of the project, with the development of 2,200 units. Some expressed concern that this would bring in at least 6,000 new people to the neighborhood in a place that lacks certain resources, transportation and adequate infrastructure. Councilman Richards said that at least 50 percent of the units, and likely more, would be reserved, with first priority given to people that already live in the neighborhood. The developers also explained the reasoning behind such a high density, saying it was necessary to allow for the building to be affordable, and to support some of the community benefits that the project will bring, such as the supermarket. Richards added that it was likely that the number of units will eventually be scaled back to some degree. Many members of various construction unions were on hand to express a desire to work on the project. Arker gave an unsatisfactory answer say-

ing, “We are depending on city financing for these projects and that financing doesn’t always support union work. We have city financing here that doesn’t always support union wages. We did a project down the road that was a union job, but today, we do not know how much we have available for union work.” However he did add that Union 32BJ is already on board and he’s open to working with other unions to determine if they can be a part of this project. Some also questioned what “affordable housing” means and urged that the development should accommodate a mix of incomes. “You say you’re building affordable housing, but the idea is to give people an opportunity for an economically diversified neighborhood. I don’t think the plan you’re putting forward does that,” Arverne resident Glenn DiResto said. “A majoriy is for those at 80% AMI or lower. It doesn’t balance out incomes. I understand the need for affordable housing, but only 13%

Remember Mom with a Gift Certificate! With every $50 gift certificate get a free bottle of shampoo!

Page 5 is going to be for people with 80% AMI or higher, so if a wife makes $35,000 and a husband makes $35,000, they do not qualify. You very much need to look at a balance of income here.” Richards and the developers said they agree that a mix of incomes is necessary. Tuesday’s meeting was just the beginning of the ULURP process and those from Arker say they plan on meeting with the community further to gain more input on the plan. The developers expect Community Board 14 to have their 60-day review period between May and July. Then the Queens Borough President will have 30 days to review it, expected between July and August. The City Planning Commission will then have a 60-day review period between August and October and it is expected to be reviewed by City Council sometime around October/ November 2019. A website regarding the project is also expected to launch soon. Look out for www.comingtoedgemere2020.com

***** Happy Mother’s Day! If you’re wondering how we got our mom pictures in this week’s paper, we asked last week! And keep an eye out, we'll be asking for dear old dad photos in a few weeks. ***** This could be something. Or like for decades, it could be nothing. So, an outfit named Sea Wave Realty that owned the Park Inn Home for Adults and the Sand Bar building, and a string of vacant stores from the boardwalk to the theater on the east side of Beach 116th Street, right off the boardwalk. There was some overlap between Sea Wave and the operators of the adult home with some owners living in Rockaway and most not. Well, just a month ago, Sea Wave trans-

ferred ownership rights to Beach 116 Ocean Promenade LLC. ***** The 39th Annual Buckley’s to Kennedy’s 5k Charity Run is Sunday, May 19 (rain or shine), and this year the event is in memory of John Kelly, the former rugby coach at Xavier. He was much loved and remains much missed. ***** You are not alone. That is if you think every Rockaway road feels like the surface of the moon. When driving, it feels like you’re in a covered wagon going through Boulder Canyon. Of course, some side streets are getting paved when they don’t need paving but hey, somebody’s making a buck. ***** It’s easy to forget. The MTA was supposed to conduct a study about a oneseat ride from JFK to Manhattan which would include reactivating or repurposing the abandoned Rock-

Page 7

away Branch Line. A little birdy told us the study was done. Our guess is that it’s favorable to Rockaway and (not so much to those who want an elevated park instead), that’s why it’s being kept under wraps. We have sent a Freedom of Information request to the MTA . And we’ve reached out to Systra Engineering, the company who was awarded the contract to do the study a couple years back. This study is like the A Train, it’s taking forever. ***** Congratulations to the shop owners who participated in another successful Taste of Rockaway. They’re happy to see new faces, of course, but it's a long, hard day. A couple of places closed early (private parties previously booked, ran out of giveaways, they normally close earlier than 6 p.m., etc.), which drew some gripes, but most people just happily moved on to another place.

***** The Concessions open next Friday, May 17. It’s a great day for locals to enjoy the beachfront places before the crowds descend. ***** We ran into a Brooklyn transplant, somebody who’s moved here recently. How’s Rockaway living, we asked. Great, no complaints. Give him time, give him time. ***** Long-time Queens District Attorney Richard Brown died last week at the age of 86. He was elected seven times to the office which he held since 1991. Seven Democrats are running in a June 25 primary to take over the DA post. The general election will be in November, but it is expected the Dem victor in June will coast in November. There are no term limits for this position, so the June primary winner might be setting prosecution policy for many years.

SIP

After several years of dangerous crossing for pedestrians at an intersection that allows traffic to come from five different directions, there are traffic lights at Beach 94th Street and Beach Channel Drive. At the request of the community, the Department of Transportation came up with a plan to improve safety at the busy intersection. Part of that plan was to add a traffic light. The plan was approved by Community Board 14 in June 2018 and this week, the DOT was on site to start installing the lights for cars and crossing signals for pedestrians. It is expected that they will soon be working, so pay attention and be prepared to stop at this area near the Cross Bay Bridge on Beach Channel Drive.

Centennial Celebration of the First Transatlantic Flight Story and Photos by Katie McFadden

On Wednesday, May 8, many came out to Riis Landing to mark the 100th anniversary of the historic takeoff of the very first transatlantic flight from Rockaway. Members of the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Navy, the National Park Service, community members and even family members of the crew and others involved in the success of the NC-4 and U.S. Navy Seaplane Division One were on hand to mark this momentous occasion. Robby Schwach of Councilman Eric Ulrich’s office spent two hard years unearthing the story of the first transatlantic flight to bring it out of shadows of history and recognize the amazing feat on the 100th anniversary. The program began just shortly after 10 a.m.,

when three Navy seaplanes, the NC-1, NC-3 and NC-4, took off from the Rockaway Air Naval Station a century before, marking the start of their journey. Out of the three planes, the NC-4 would be the only one to complete the full trip, making stops in Massachusetts, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and the Azores, before reaching Lisbon, Portugal. The ceremony included speeches by members of the Coast Guard and Navy, who acknowledged the accomplishments of their fellow service members 100 years ago. Councilman Eric Ulrich presented proclamations to the members of both branches. Family members of Jack Towers, the head of the Naval Aviation Corps who spearheaded the historic journey, spoke about the accomplishments of their late family member.

Although a seaplane wasn’t available, there were flyovers with helicopters from the Coast Guard and NYPD, while a FDNY boat put on a water show that caught the attention of the crowd. Bands from Scholars’

Academy and Channel View School for Research performed while their fellow classmates watched on. The ceremony ended with students from the schools placing carnations in a basket in memory of all of the

Rustwoods Presents ReBaroque — A Melody of Pluggable Art By Kami-Leigh Agard

Imagine being able to plug in your music to a gilded piece of art. This Friday, May 10 at 8 p.m., Rustwoods will give you that avant-garde experience at their interactive exhibit, The Ballad of ReBaroque Audio Sound Art. Blending his musical history and technical skills as a craftsman and visual fine artist, at this exhibit, Rustwoods’ proprietor, Mikal Hameed, and his alter ego artist M11X, calls on us to forget our individualized nature and relationship with our headphones, and demands that we start to share our music as it was meant to be: unplugged from our ears and free. Hameed’s works, so craftily packaged, will have you wondering—is this art, a bluetooth speaker—or both? Also attendees will get to view Hameed’s ReBaroque coffee table book, an intimate 12-month narrative of how his ground-breaking sound art transcended many personal obstacles that through perseverance and faith, redeemed his life, not just as an artist, but as a father and husband. A few days ago, many were gawking at the fashion adorned by celebrities on the red carpet at the Met Gala’s campthemed extravaganza. Well, Hameed’s ReBaroque brings camp to Rockaway in an albeit more polished level. Following in the footsteps of the early Dadaists and Fluxus sound experiments, Hameed adds a bit of Baroquian sophistication to the sound experience. All 10 pieces in which the bluetooth speaker is embedded, incorporate lush tapestries, mounted in ornate antique frames that look as though they were salvaged from the drawing room of King Louis XIV. Each piece is named after significant influences in Hameed’s life, not just as an artist, but as a lover of music and most of all, family. For example, one

particularly beautiful piece set in a brocaded fabric, awash in a kaleidoscope of warm colors, is named after his wife, Carlotta. When asked what inspired ReBaroque, Hameed shared, “I guess you can say it boils down to my love for music and art. My grandma used to crochet my headphones into my hat. I was always plugged into music. The people in my family are all musicians. (Hameed is related to James Brown, Otis Day and legendary jazz drummer, Billy Higgins). I am the only one that can’t sing or play an instrument, but I was blessed with the passion to draw and build things. I come from the 80s boom box generation,

and I created ReBaroque as a medium for us to move away from today’s headphone existence.” Hameed said that he created his first ReBaroque piece in 2010. After a series of personal and financial setbacks, including at one point becoming homeless, through faith and perseverance, he never gave up on his dream. With the support of friends, he stayed the course, and was even commissioned by Anthropologie for his designs. With a huge demand for production, Hurricane Sandy hit, and his warehouse in New Jersey was robbed of power, but miracles do happen, and Hameed was able to fulfill the order.

For Hameed, finally introducing ReBaroque to Rockaway is a journey that came full circle with his desire to introduce something that could benefit the community. “Rebaroque’s up-cycled sound frames are made from found wood, reclaimed frames and remnant pieces of fabric or wallpaper. Many of my local friends in the community, including Geoff Rawling, Jerry Rea and Tommy Burke, donated the frames for this Friday’s exhibit. When I first started ReBaroque, the trend at the time was iPods and other MP3 players. Now with the evolution of technology, bluetooth makes the sound installation even more minimalist. These frames literally just plug into the wall, and give a great sound. I really poured my heart into this, and now prefer to make these pieces as oneoffs, as opposed to commercially producing them. I want people in beach communities like Rockaway to really have fun listening to their music with these pieces that surely will elicit a conversation about how we listen and share music today. I’m even open to customizing these pieces for boutique hotels and restaurants. The goal is to meld art and music together in a sustainable manner,” Hameed said. Come out this Friday, May 10, 8 p.m. for Rustwoods’ The Ballad of ReBaroque and enjoy this interactive experience. Hameed said, “I want everyone to come in and plug in their music. We’ll have our own boom box party! Also, if people are interested in learning how to make their own ReBaroque digital music art piece, I will be conducting workshops in the near future.” Hameed offers a strong testimony of how great art is transcendent, goes beyond the now and reminds us that joy still comes in the morning. Rustwoods is located at 97-02 Yard, Rockaway Beach Blvd. For more info, email: rustwoodsrockawaybeach@ gmail.com

Cinco De Mammo ST. JOHN’S HIGHLIGHTS WOMEN’S HEALTH AWARENESS A grand celebration in honor of women’s health awareness was held at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital on Friday, May 3. At the bash, known as Cinco de Mammo, community members learned the importance of receiving mammograms and health screenings, easily scheduled appointments, and became acquainted with the abundance of services St. John’s offers at its various practices throughout the Rockaways. Event attendees included community members, patients, and hospital staff who were treated to live music from a mariachi band, refreshments, and more. “The purpose of the Cinco de Mammo event is to encourage the public to get health screenings, especially mammograms,” Rosemary Bonilla, Vice President of Physician Practice & Ambulatory Care said. “Breast cancer is prevalent in the Rockaways, and

residents need to be educated about getting screened so that cancer is caught and fought in its early stages.” In a community study, the Rockaways (and Central Queens) were identified as having the highest breast cancer rates in Queens County, and early breast cancer diagnosis rates are lower than the U.S. average. “Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide, and claims hundreds of thousands of lives each year,” Donald Morrish, MD, Chief Medical Officer said. “It is extremely important to get regular screenings

because early detection increases your chance of finding breast cancer before it spreads.” Beyond mammograms, SJEH, and several of its community practices, offer a variety of women’s health services including well-woman visits and screenings; routine and highrisk obstetrics; reproductive endocrinology and infertility services; management of abnormal Pap smears; minimally invasive surgery; gynecological oncology; and urogynecology. Event attendees also learned about the hospital’s future expansion plans which include building a Women’s Comprehensive Health Center and a 3,850-square-foot Radiation Oncology Center. The Women’s Comprehensive Health Center will feature routine and sub-specialty gynecological and obstetrical services; maternal fetal med-

icine; urogynecologic services; cancer screening; breast surgery; behavioral health; nutrition service; bone density scanning; and ultrasound, mammography, and on-site lab services. The Radiation Oncology Center will contain the latest state-of-the-art equipment available including Rockaway’s only linear accelerator—a machine that customizes high energy x-rays or electrons to conform to a tumor's shape and destroy cancer cells while sparing surrounding normal tissue. “I want to thank St. John’s Episcopal Hospital for bringing such vital resources to our community,” Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato said. “Breast Cancer has touched so many of our lives and it is important to encourage the public to get screened regularly.” To schedule an appointment, call 718-869-7690.

The Rockaway Times

 By Beth Hanning

Remembering My Mom The dictionary has many definitions for the word, “mother.” It can be a noun or a verb, and the noun is really about just being related to the offspring: a woman in relation to her child or children. The verb is where the “motherly” words get added in: care, protection and affection. Caring, protecting and affection are definitely three

words I can use to describe my late mother. She died in 1988 and not a day goes by that I do not think of her or as a mother think, “What would my mom do?” Care: my mom always made sure that we came first. She even stopped teaching to make sure she was home every single day when we arrived home from school. We did homework as soon

Page 15

as we got home because she said our brains stopped working after a certain hour. I clearly remember sitting at the kitchen table, working on my own homework and usually helping my brother, John. She cared enough to sit with us every afternoon, even when we were whining and begging to stop doing homework and let us go out and play. Protection: As parents, this is our number one job to keep our children safe. My mother did this. Even though I do not remember wearing seatbelts while driving in the car or helmets while biking, I do remember her lathering us with sunscreen when we got to the beach every day. She also stood at the shore of the beach each day and made sure she kept us in her sights. One day, I was “playing” lifeguard with a friend and I was pretending to be drowning. She ran into the water and saved me and lost her prescription sunglasses.

I felt terrible. I remember her losing the sunglasses but I do not remember her being angry. She was relieved that I was safe. Affection: I think this is where the old Irish families lacked. Is getting a little hair pull when you answered back considered affection? Or being told you cannot leave the dinner table until you have finished your vegetables, affection? Well, I do know when I was sick, mom was there with me and made sure I had everything I needed. That was her affection. I often say I cannot believe my mother never told me how difficult being a mom was going to be. It is the hardest job in the world and she made it look so easy. So, as we head into this Mother’s Day weekend, remember your moms and everything they have done for you or if you are lucky enough, they are still here to help you through life.

A Real Heart to Heart By Katie McFadden

On Monday, April 22, Megan Erickson got to hear something special for the first time in more than two and a half years—her husband’s heartbeat. After Erickson’s husband, John, tragically died in 2016, his organs were donated to give others the gift of life, and his heart found a new home in the chest of Robert Pascarelli, who with the use of a stethoscope, allowed Erickson to connect with her husband again. According to Erickson, of Howard Beach, John’s heart was certainly a big one. “He was a good person. He was very giving, very caring and always wanting to help people,” she said. For instance, although the family lived in mainland Queens, Erickson says following Hurricane Sandy, John, who worked in construction, gave much of his time helping those in Rockaway to reconstruct and raise their homes. With such a big heart, for John, being an organ donor was a no-brainer. Originally from Long Island, the Ericksons moved to Forest Hills, Queens, so John could be closer to Manhattan, where he worked his main job as a union sandhog in the subways. With the move, a trip to the DMV to change addresses was in order and that tedious task led John to make a life-changing decision. “I noticed he wasn’t an organ donor and he just didn’t realize he could be one, so I mentioned it to him while we were at the DMV and he checked off the box, no questions asked,” Erickson said. Little did they know that decision would become vital sooner than later. In September 2016, Erickson’s younger brother died tragically in a motorcycle accident just a few months after she lost her father, who died from a longtime illness. John offered to step up and help his wife take care of the funeral arrangements for her brother in Long Island. On September 16, 2016, the night before the wake, John was on the phone with his wife while walking across Route 110 in Melville, when he was stuck by a car. Erickson, just 20 minutes away, didn’t realize at the time how serious the accident was until she arrived and her husband was airlifted to

Donna and Megan Erickson hold their hands over the heart of Robert Pascarelli.

Stony Brook Hospital. John Erickson was pronounced dead on September 18, 2016. He was 34. Just across the Long Island Sound, in Norwalk, Ct., Robert Pascarelli, a retired engineer and police officer, was holding on to hope for a new lease at life. Pascarelli had been dealing with heart issues since suffering his first heart attack in 1990. With his heart operating at 10 percent functionality by 2016, a transplant was his last hope. He had been waiting in a hospital for a transplant for seven months when on a September night at 1 a.m., a nurse told him that a match was available—John Erickson’s heart. Through checking off that box to be an organ donor, John Erickson was able to save the lives of at least four people. One kidney went to a 10-year-old girl; another to a man in his mid-twenties. His liver went to a woman in her 50s and John’s heart, found a place to beat in the chest of Pascarelli, in his 60s. Working with LiveOnNY, a federally designated nonprofit that oversees organ donation and transplants in the greater New York area, Pascarelli was able to give Megan Erickson and John’s mother, Donna, the opportunity to hear John’s heart once again. Following the transplant, Erickson agreed to have contact with those who received John’s organs, and Pascarelli was eager to meet the family of his donor. On April 22, in LiveOnNY's Manhattan office, the Erickson family got to meet the man who holds

Megan and John Erickson.

John’s heart. Without having previously met, both Erickson and Pascarelli say they just knew who each other was the second they walked into the room. “I felt John’s presence immediately,” Erickson said. “When I walked into that room, my body went right to Megan. It was like John was pushing my legs right towards her,” Pascarelli said. “When the guy walked in, I had a breakdown crying. I’m a strong person, but when he came in and hugged me, I just bawled and let go. I needed that cry and him hugging me brought such a feeling of both sorrow and happiness at the same time,” Erickson said. Following the initial emotions of their first encounter, Pascarelli placed a stethoscope to his chest, allowing John’s mother, Donna, and his wife, Megan, to hear that vital piece of John once again. “I can’t even describe the feeling,” Megan said. “It’s just such a beautiful thing to know that John’s living on, even though that means he’s not here physically, but living through someone else.” Erickson says she’s made a special connection with the man who carries her late love’s heart. “He feels like a father figure to me. I lost my father so soon before my husband died and it’s like I have that father figure now to talk to again. He’s the nicest guy ever. I couldn’t have asked for someone better to receive John’s heart,” Erickson said, adding that she plans to stay in touch with Pascarelli. Since receiving John’s heart more than two years ago, Pas-

carelli says his health has improved immensely. “I feel like a 35-year-old guy from the waist up. My legs still have problems, but my heart is strong,” he said. For Pascarelli, meeting the family of his donor was very important. “I thought it would be a blessing for them to hear his heart and I wanted to meet them,” he said, adding that he’s still reflecting on the whole experience. “It was so touching. I’ll never forget that day. I’m still shaking from it. Megan gave me some pictures of John and now his picture is right there as you walk in the door of my house. Every morning, I wake up and say good morning to him,” Pascarelli said. Pascarelli also mentioned that now he and his whole family have since registered as organ donors themselves. Although a story that begins with sadness, Erickson says knowing that John is living on in some way, brings a sense of comfort. “Knowing that he was able to save four lives is incredible. It’s such a beautiful thing to know that something so tragic could end in a beautiful way,” she said. According to LiveOnNY, there are more than 113,600 people on national waiting lists for organs. Currently, New York state ranks dead last in the nation for the percentage of residents that are registered as organ donors, and nearly 10,000 people are awaiting a transplant in NY. The next time you visit the DMV, consider checking off that box. To find out more about organ donation, visit ww.liveonny.org.

Ask the DOC

By Peter Galvin, MD

Breast concerns account for about three percent of female visits to a primary care provider. The most common symptoms accounting for these visits are breast lumps and breast pain. Because breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women in the United States, affecting one in eight women over their lifetime, women with breast problems often fear the worst. However, studies have shown that only about 3.5 percent of women reporting a concern have cancer; most problems are benign. Evaluation of a breast concern requires a systematic approach. For example, if the concern is a lump, does it change in size, tenderness, or consistency at any point in the menstrual cycle. Examination of the breast should include assessing breast symmetry, noting any skin changes like dimpling,

THURSDAY, MAY 9, 2019

Mammary Lane and evaluation of the nipple for discharge or inversion. The exam should also include evaluation of lymph nodes in the neck, above and below the clavicle (collarbone), and in the axilla (armpit). If a mass is present, it is more likely to be malignant if it is hard or has indistinct margins, is fixed to the underlying structures or skin (meaning it is not freely moveable), or if it is associated with skin dimpling or nipple inversion. It is more likely to be benign if it has discrete, well-defined margins, has a soft or rubbery consistency, or if it changes with the menstrual cycle. However, because clinical findings can be unreliable, any mass should be evaluated with mammography and possibly ultrasound as well. In women under age 30, mammography may be less effective because younger women tend to have denser breasts making mammography technically difficult. Breast pain is common. Over

50 percent of women will experience breast pain at some point in their lifetime, however breast cancer rarely causes breast pain. Breast pain may adversely affect sleep and quality of life. Over 65 percent of women with breast pain report that the level of pain correlates to their menstrual cycle. The long-term prognosis for women with diffuse, often bilateral breast pain, is excellent. In one study that followed women with breast pain for almost five years, less than two percent developed breast cancer. Treatment for breast pain includes a well-fitting bra that offers lift, support, and compression, and minimizes excess motion. Reducing caffeine intake is often suggested for breast pain, however strong evidence for this is lacking. Anti-inflammatory medications may be helpful and tamoxifen, which is used to treat estrogen-positive breast cancer, is often recommended for breast pain associated with the menstrual cy-

cle. Other treatments include over-the-counter (OTC) medications like Vitamins E and B6, oil of chaste tree or chasteberry, flaxseed, and acupuncture. Nipple discharge is seen in five to 15 percent of women with breast cancer. If the discharge is unilateral, mammography is often recommended even in the absence of a detectable mass. If it is happening in both breasts, thyroid and visual field evaluations should be performed to look for the possibility of a pituitary mass (the pituitary gland, located in the front of the brain, is the central control center for the endocrine system which includes lactation). Lastly, all women should see their Ob/Gyn doctor for an annual breast exam and possible mammography. Talk to the gynecologist about when to start annual mammograms as the recommendations keep changing. Please direct questions and comments to editor@rockawaytimes.com

Is It a Crisis or an Inconvenience? A friend of mine has had a very, very full year—illness in the family, complications with that illness, holiday hosting, accidents, family marriage proposals, wedding planning and all that goes along with that. It has been one emotional thing after another. I can’t imagine how she was keeping it all going. And she always has a smile, a kind word and is interested in how I am doing. I guess she was maybe reacting to something rather strongly one day, when

her daughter said to her, “Is it a crisis or is it an inconvenience?” This is a very powerful sentence. And her daughter is wise beyond her age! There are degrees of gravity to any situation and assessing it at the time of occurrence could entirely change our wellbeing. If everything not-so-joyous happens is a crisis, then we get into that “fight or flight mode” and our sympathetic nervous systems rein and don’t rebound to normal. That means that diges-

tion could be off, sleep could be off, reproductive system could be off—all of the systems in the body that may not be necessary when we have to fight off a tiger. But when the tiger is gone, the body’s nervous system should rebalance and the physical body systems get back into check. If we think and feel that everyday mishaps and happenings are crises, then the body (physical, mental, emotional), never gets back to normal, compromising our health. And chances are we are not so present and kind to the people around us. So the next time something arises that gets to your core— and everything is subjective, one person’s reaction to the exact same occurrence can be completely different—maybe try to step back, assess it and ask that question: is this just an inconvenience right now? How can I navigate towards correcting or resolving it? On the other hand, if it is evident that a crisis is arising, there are two tools that come to our aid. One is our breath, and the other is tuning in to the power within. We each can develop

our own coping mechanisms. The breath is simply consciously focusing on the inhalations and exhalations, making them longer, deeper and fuller. I visualize my power within coming from my middle body— the “chakra”—energy center “manipura”—between the navel and solar plexus. (This awareness is rooted in the yoga tradition. The solar plexus is the location of a bundle of nerves in the abdomen). This energy center relates to the digestive system and the adrenal glands which control some functions very important to our overall health. Focusing on this area in the body, visualizing personal power and strength, and vocalizing or repeating to yourself some very positive affirmations can help to get through crises. My lesson from my friend’s daughter: take the time to assess what comes up and think, feel, say and do accordingly. May you be happy. May you be free. May you be grateful. May you let go of things that do not serve you. May you have inner peace.

Traveling with Bob and Sandy TOASTING THE HEAVENS By Bob & Sandy Nesoff

In the not too distant past, Happy Hour always meant sitting at an indoor bar, elbows bent over a long wooden plank, trying to get the attention of a passing waiter whose objective it seemed, was to ignore you. Some of these exciting venues are rooftops while others are situated indoors. Things have sure changed. From London to New York to San Juan and even to New Jersey, Happy Hour has taken on a new panache, more relaxed, fresh air and an ambiance, whereby you can actually talk to the people around you. The advent of the rooftop bar brings with it a relaxing atmosphere and more of a kick off the shoes feeling. You can actually lean back, raise your feet and enjoy the glass of alcohol in your hand. One of the more spectacular watering holes—or more appropriately, a place in the sky—is the RoofTop at Exchange Place in Jer-

sey City, NJ. Patrons here are privy to one of the most spectacular views in the world, the Manhattan skyline. There’s earth-toned seating along the bar with a strip of fire that actually runs down the middle of the bar. Bad weather? Not to worry. There’s a retractable ceiling and walls that will cocoon you in case of rain or, in winter, snow and cold weather. Sit back, relax, look at the boats sailing by in the Hudson River and the skyscrapers across the water. Check out RoofTop Bar, 1 Exchange Place, Jersey City, NJ. For more info, call 551256-7850 or visit: rooftopex.com Brooklyn—New York’s most upand-coming neighborhood, isn’t sitting back when it comes to recreational drinking. Check out Elsewhere, just off the Jefferson Avenue section in a district that is growing in popularity for its nightlife. Elsewhere features a mind-bending laser and LED light show. There are rockers and DJs. Inside Elsewhere, there’s space for up to 700 revelers and

the entertainment is decidedly off-the-beaten-path. There are indie rockers and underground performers. Elsewhere may not be for the button-down crowd, but if you’d like to cut loose, you can always unbutton the shirt collar and enjoy. For some fresh air at Elsewhere and more peace and quiet, head upstairs for the open rooftop deck and a glorious view of Downtown Brooklyn. The Dodgers would never recognize their old borough. Heading overseas for business or pleasure, London has transformed itself from a dry and staid city to one that rocks at night. Red Carnation Hotels has a menu of bars that provide views of royalty and great scenery. The Leopard Bar at the Rubens at the Palace is directly across from Buckingham Palace, home of Queen Liz and Prince Phil. Charles, Camilla, William and Kate and Harry and Meghan can be seen frequently coming and going. But for the serious drinker, The

Leopard offers more than 200 whiskies and some 30 champagnes. That’s a tall order even for the most serious reveler. Entertainment ranges from live jazz to swing music and everything in between. If you’re a world traveler, Red Carnation has Leopard Bars in selected hotels around the world. Each is identified by the bronze leopard welcoming guests. Visitors can be seated in lush brown leather, deep-buttoned sofas in rooms walled with antique wood panels. Each is adorned by displays of glass whiskey. Obviously, this only touches the surface of upscale but comfortable watering holes. When on the road, check in with your hotel’s concierge for information on what type of bar or entertainment you might be interested in. They usually know every place in the city you are visiting. Bob Nesoff is an Arverne native and graduate of Far Rockaway High School.

I'm 100 percent sure it was the right move for right now. Who knows what will happen next? I have so many friends giving me advice, even if I don't ask, so I'm asking you, Miss Enchantress, what should I do next? Should I go on a dating app? Should I go out and party? Should I sit home and cry? Should I go on vacation? ARGH!!! It's like I don't know myself at all without him. We have some mutual friends, and they are asking me what they should do! Be-

I imagine all these friends really care about you, so first it's great that you have a community. Second, I strongly advise you to take one whole day, to unplug, rest, take a bath, and if you have the energy, clean your house, (or start) to clear out your house of items that are remnants of your past relationship. You can give away, throw out, or put in a box, photos, clothing, personal items, so they are not in your face. Then I would offer you some way of

Another Day, Another Security Breach: If You’re a Victim By Gille Ann Rabbin, Esq., CIPP/US

Data security breaches occur all the time. Yahoo, Marriott, Equifax, Target, Sony, Heartland, Uber—and these are just the giant ones that make the headlines. A breach typically occurs when digitally-held personal information like your credit card number, Social Security number, financial account or medical record is exposed. This can happen through loss or theft of a computer or flash drive, hacking, or unintentionally, for example, when a business sends an email intended for you to somebody else. A breach may result in criminals using your information to commit identity theft or selling it to other criminals on the dark web. Last week, the media reported that Israeli security researchers discovered an unprotected database online containing personal data for over 80 million house-

holds. The victims are generally over 40 years old. The researchers have no idea who owns the database, and report it is “a goldmine for identity thieves” and other criminals, including those who want to target older, vulnerable people for phishing and other scams. Some breaches are worse than others. Just because millions of records have been breached, does not make the breach bad. What matters is the risk of identity theft the breach poses for victims. State and federal laws require entities to notify breach victims by email, U.S. mail, telephone, or in certain circumstances, through the media. If you receive a breach notification, it is important to do what you can to protect yourself from further victimization. A notice should state when the breach occurred, what data was affected, and provide contact in-

formation. Read the notice; verify that it is not a scam by checking the contact information with that of the breaching entity. If you have questions, contact the entity by a phone call you make or though its website by typing its URL into your browser. Don’t provide information to a caller claiming to be from the breaching entity, or in response to an email (or link within) purportedly from the breaching entity. These could be fraudulent. It’s important to ascertain what the breaching entity is doing to help breach victims reduce the risk of identity theft. If free credit monitoring services are offered, strongly consider signing up. Credit monitoring can often pick up early signs of identity theft, allowing you to stop it sooner. You should also close affected password-protected and financial accounts (bank, credit, debit cards) and set up new ones.

If you get an email from any source, including the breaching entity requesting additional information about a compromised account or card, don’t reply. This could be a scam. While many breaches don’t result in fraud, look out for signs of criminal activity. Check your credit card, bank, monthly bills or other financial statements regularly for transactions you did not make. Report signs of fraud to the financial institution. The law entitles you to a free annual credit report from each of the Big Three credit reporting agencies (Experian, Equifax, TransUnion). That’s one free report every four months. Check it and follow up on inaccuracies. Finally, consider placing a Fraud Alert or Security Freeze on your credit report. These can make it more difficult or impossible for a criminal to commit identity theft with your breached information.

The British F.3 Felixstowe Twin Engine Seaplane was developed from the Curtiss Seaplane America by the British seaplane pioneer, Cyril John Porte. In 1914, Curtiss Seaplane America was to be the U.S. entry for the Transatlantic Race until World War 1 began in Europe. The prototype was sold to England and many were ordered here to be built at the Curtiss plant in Buffalo, NY. The seaplanes were shipped to England by boat. Later, the British F5L Seaplane development led to the American version, the F5L in the summer of 1918. This American version was to have transatlantic flying capabilities. In order to be ferried over to England and save cargo space for much needed materials, these aircrafts had larger fuel tanks. In addition, the new American Packard Liberty engines had two 12-cylinder V-type. After the war ended (1918), the American F5L was used to make navigation and radio tests for the planned NC-4 Transatlantic Flight in May of 1919 in conjunction with U.S. Navy destroyers out at sea. The F5L was built at the Navy’s factory in Philadelphia, Penn., and production was scaled down at the end of WWI.

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

Mothering Sunday Oh muddahs! This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and to be honest, I still get discombobulated when someone greets me, “Happy Mother’s Day!” My 10-year-old nonverbal daughter with autism is proof that I am a mom, (trust me, I was there when she emerged like a roaring lion on Wednesday, October 16, 2008 at 5:01 p.m.). However, admittedly mothering my little girl on the autism spectrum oftentimes feels less like mothering, and more like fighting. Every day is a battle, where I am fighting to understand her, fighting to make sure her needs are met, fighting to make sure she gets necessary services, fighting to understand where she fits in the school system, fighting to keep my sanity on the especially difficult days, fighting to hold in tears when I feel defeated and like a failure, fighting, fighting… However, don’t get me wrong, every time I look at my daughter, I thank our heavenly Father for blessing me with her. As eloquently quoted by German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche: “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.” And moms, I’m sure we all can agree, that our children on the autism spectrum have made us tough and brought out a grit that we never knew we possessed. And even more significantly, our little band of X-Men has taught us the true meaning of unconditional love.

While penning this column, I was curious as to the origins of Mother’s Day. In the U.K. and Ireland, Mother’s Day or Mothering Sunday, originally had nothing to do with mothers at all. It was a day for Christians to visit their "mother" church. The U.K.’s Mother's Day always falls on the fourth Sunday during the period of Lent, when people typically give up things like certain foods or bad habits for the days leading up to Easter. In the U.S, the day was not linked to religion, but was dedicated entirely to mothers. Its origins date back to the 19th century, when in the years before the Civil War, Ann Reeves Jarvis of West Virginia helped start, “Mothers’ Day Work Clubs,” to teach local women how to properly care for their children. However, the official Mother’s Day holiday arose in the 1900s as a result of the efforts of Jarvis’ daughter, Anna, who conceived of Mother’s Day as a way of honoring the sacrifices mothers made for their children. After gaining financial backing from a Philadelphia department store owner named John Wanamaker, in May 1908, she organized the first official Mother’s Day celebration at a Methodist church in Grafton, West Virginia. Following the success of her first Mother’s Day, Jarvis, (who

Page 39

ironically remained unmarried and childless her whole life) resolved to see her holiday added to the national calendar. She started a massive letter writing campaign to newspapers and prominent politicians urging the adoption of a special day honoring motherhood. Her persistence paid off in 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson signed a measure officially establishing the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. This got me to thinking. The Rockaway Beach Autism Families (RBAF) support group is like Jarvis’ early Mothers’ Day Work Clubs. However, we are a group of not just women, but also men banding together to advocate for our children on the spectrum. As our children’s caregivers, we are advocates, educators, cheerleaders, therapists, warriors, and much more. At our meetings, we share with each other jewels of information that maybe helpful to another parent, struggling with schooling, debating on medications or a particular

therapy. April is National Autism Awareness month, but at RBAF, we work to build autism awareness and acceptance every single day. And the same goes for holidays like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. For me, every day is a day to commemorate and celebrate our blessings as parents, and our own families and community, who are there for us in this crazy parenting journey. However, this Sunday, let’s borrow an aspect of the U.K.’s and Ireland’s Mothering Day. Give up this bad habit. Instead of berating yourself as a parent, take a moment to celebrate your strength. We are strong, we are blessed and we are beautiful! Share your thoughts by emailing ourartisticchild@ outlook.com or check out Rockaway Beach Autism Families Facebook page. On Sunday, May 19, join RBAF for a walk/run on the boardwalk for autism awareness. Rockaway, together we can, “Turn the tide for our autism community, one wave at a time.”

Beach Channel Baseball Off to a Strong Start

Spotted: Rocking The Tee At a B & B

After throwing a No Hitter on April 24 against William Cullen Bryant School, Nicholas Donahue’s encore was just as brilliant. He threw a one-hitter against Forest Hills High School on April 29, compiling 10k and walking none. The team has gone on a late season run backed by Donahue’s three pitching performances and tremendous hitting by sophomore Dylan Wayne. Beach Channel, coached by Coach John Mangieri, has won three of four and is starting to believe. Six games remain in the regular season.

We’re not sure who is a Tubridy, a Fitzpatrick, or a Keegan, but we know the two best-dressed guys are Dan Tubridy and Terence Tubridy. The good-looking gang all lined up in front of Martin Tubridy’s B and B in Cooraclare, Ireland. Need a place to stay next time you’re in Cooraclare, you can find it online.
