Roger Ready! By Lou Pastina

By now you know that the old theater on 116th Street is down, and that the talented Maribel has opened a new restaurant on the commercial strip because you read The Rockaway Times, or at least look at the front-page photos. But did you know that the inside of Rogers is going through a huge renovation? A few years ago, Rogers and the entire building that houses the bar was purchased by Mike McMahon, and he fixed up the inside to make it presentable, and added music every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That didn’t seem to bother the old regulars, who I’m not quite sure recognized that their surroundings had changed. But with the addition of super good and friendly bartenders, and the addition of all things Irish (especially football), things started to pick up in the old place. So, when the country-pickin’ Graytrippers waltzed in for their quarterly gig at Rogers this past Friday night, they were surprised to see that the place was going through another transformation. I don’t know how they did it, but seemingly overnight the place got bigger. They ripped out the men’s room, which now makes room for a dancing area, and ripped the walls back to the exposed brick. The men’s room was moved to the back hall; and, is for sure, the nicest bathroom on all of 116th Street! Apparently two or three Irish carpenters were working at night and literally overnight put in woodwork all over the bar, added a recessed ceiling and lights, and trimmed out all the details. And they are not done by any stretch. They also added big screens all around, but the good news is that the beer, especially the Guinness

Page 5

is still great, and the servers are the same great guys. Now everything else I’m about to say is based not upon what I know, but about what I hear. And what I hear is that the owner is adding 22 rooms upstairs and plans to open as a hotel next spring. And from what I saw briefly looking up the side stairs, that work is proceeding. Now I have to say, given all the other changes on Beach 116th Street, this is absolutely brilliant on his part. My only complaint is that the stage is still smallish, but what other venue in Rockaway has a stage! The other charming aspect about Rogers is the clientele, which are pure Rockaway originals. By that, and I mean no disrespect, there aren’t any phonies here. And Rogers always attracts a late-night group that decides, “you know what, before I go home, let me stop in and have one more.� When we play there, it’s a blast to have a conversation with someone who has made that decision, because the conversations are memorable. Take, for instance, the one I had this past Friday. A friend who stopped in for “one last one,� told me that Rockaway has some all-star musicians, but that the Trippers are probably a cut below that level. Or the group that came in just as we finished, asking could they play one song? Sure, I said, what could happen? One song turned into a four-song mini set! You just can’t get entertainment like this on Netflix or Amazon, trust me! So, I would give it a little time, but if you are heading home one night this winter and have a little fuel still left in the tank, poke your head in to Rogers for "one last one" and check out the transformation, it’s gonna be awesome!

Celebrate the ‘Worst Thing About Living In Rockaway’ With Vino & Whit's By Katie McFadden

Vino By the Sea, Rockaway’s newest wine and spirits store, just turned one! To celebrate the anniversary, they’re teaming up with Whit’s End to celebrate, “The Worst Thing About Living in Rockaway,” with some of the best things about living here—great food, delicious drinks, live music, and good people. Last November, Vino By The

Sea opened its doors near Beach 69th Street at The Tides in Arverne By The Sea, bringing a unique selection of wines and spirits that are hard to come by anywhere else locally. As people are still learning about this new

addition to the peninsula, owner Adam Linet says business has been good as they grow their customer base. “It’s awesome. We’re going in the right direction, maybe not as fast as I’d like but we’re going. But it’s only been positive. Everyone has been pretty receptive to the concept,” he said. Vino By The Sea’s selection of wines and spirits mostly come from small production wineries and distilleries, making their selection unique. “For the most part, we don’t have any big name brands, so people who actually like to taste what they drink are very appreciative that we carry producers that care about what they make,” Linet said. Vino By The Sea also offers services that have customers making it their go to. Every Friday, they hold in-store tasting events so customers can sample their unique wines and spirits. They also offer a delivery service and allow customers to place orders on their website: vinobythesea.com

To celebrate their first year, on Saturday, November 23 at 8 p.m., they’re throwing a party, called “The Worst Thing About Living in Rockaway.” As we approach the winter, a time when the beach crowds all-but-disappear, and locals have a chance to show some love to all of the local businesses mostly in the company of neighbors, for some, the off-season is anything but, “the worst thing about living in Rockaway.” “It’s tongue-in-cheek,” Linet said. “The winter is about local love. Yeah, the A train sucks, but the beach is empty and it’s still beautiful. We’re just happy to be around, so let’s have a good time hanging out.” What better way to do that than offering food provided by Whit’s End, drinks provided by Vino By the Sea, and local music—for free. “It’s a way to thank everyone for coming out and supporting us and helping to spread the word,” Linet said. Instead of at the store, the

party will be held at Whit’s End to accommodate the expected crowds. Plus, Whit's and Vino already pair well. “Vino and Whit's collaborate on wine pairings for the restaurant,” Linet said. Whitney Aycock was immediately on board when Linet presented him with the idea of an anniversary party. Linet says the party will serve as a reflection of some of the positive changes in Rockaway. “We hope that people appreciate the direction that the Rockaways are going in when it comes to food and beverage,” Linet said. He also hopes it serves as a reminder to the community to support local businesses throughout the off-season. “We just want people to know we’re here and to come out and have a good time on Saturday,” he said. “The Worst Thing About Living in Rockaway” bash kicks off at 8 p.m. on Saturday, November 23 at Whit’s End (97-02 Rockaway Beach Blvd.) While the event is free, donations are welcome.

EDGEMERE COMMONS GETS THE GO-AHEAD Edgemere Commons is coming. On Thursday, November 14, City Council approved the rezoning for the massive development taking over the site of the old Peninsula Hospital. A development consisting of 11 buildings and 2,050 units is coming to Edgemere. In keeping with the City Council tradition of voting along with the councilmember who represents the area concerning the land use decision, City Council unanimously voted yes along with Councilman Donovan Richards, who supported the project from the beginning. Arker Company's development, expected to begin 2020 and be built in multiple phases within 15 years, will bring affordable apartments, a Western Beef supermarket, additional retail space, and a community center to the less than 10-acre site. While many agree on the need for more affordable housing and a revitalization of the Edgemere area, there were heavy concerns expressed over the development at a special meeting held on the subject in June.

Page 7

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2019 Ultimately, Community Board 14 voted to disapprove the project and made several recommendations. Among the biggest recommendation was to reduce the original density of 2,200 units by 30 to 50%, to add more parking to the plan to accommodate 75% of the units and to adjust the Area Median Income requirements to provide for a better mix of incomes. In the final approval, the plan was only reduced by 150 units, no additional residential parking was added, and the AMI requirements remained the same. Following the City Council vote, at a forum for Queens Borough President candidates, Councilman Richards, who is running for the position, was confronted over his decision to ignore Community Board 14’s recommendations. Richards was the only candidate who refused to sign a pledge saying he will go with the recommendations of community boards 100% of the time. “It’s impossible to agree with community boards 100% of the time,” he said.

Street got one of the quickest makeovers we’ve ever heard of. It was closed for a couple days last week, then reopened with a whole new look. Owner Mike McMahon is quietly transforming the place into something grand. A backyard beer garden, an outdoor space on the second floor, and hotel rooms. The times, they are a changin’ on 116th. Thank You café across the street is new and spiffy. A pizza restaurant is slated for the old PJ Currans. The theater is gone on the beach block as new residential and commercial spaces take shape. The new condos on 116th and the coming hotel on Beach 108th are great bookends which will help the blocks in between. ***** Congratulations to the Beach Channel Dolphins football team on their first playoff game win this past Saturday against Stuyvesant.

Give Into the Yuletide Spirit With 2019's Stocking For A Cause By Kami-Leigh Agard

In a recent Army News Service article, a boy, whose father suffered severely debilitating injuries while on his 10th Army deployment, stated, "While Americans are grateful for the sacrifices service members make for our country, it's the sacrifices they don't see that are the hardest.” This statement hits home and truly emotes why Rockaway local, Eugene Brennan, together with In Good Company Hospitality group (IGC) are back at it with Stockings For A Cause (SFC), to make the holidays memorable for an American Army hero. Last year, Brennan was able to raise $40K, of which 100% of the proceeds went to a veteran in need, and this year, he’s set a goal of $50K to help U.S. Army Sergeant Kristian Cedeno, a proud Queensborn infantryman, who despite his excruciating injuries, re-

fused to resign his post, because serving his country is his duty. Since 2011, Brennan, an FDNY firefighter serving in Ladder 35 in upper Manhattan, also managing partner of Manhattan’s Park Avenue Tavern, operated by IGC, the team behind other noteworthy NYC venues, including Bungalow Bar, has steadfastly ran the nine-year running fundraiser, Stockings For A Cause. The event has quickly grown, from raising $5K in the first year, to $40K last year. Each year, at several bars and restaurants, any customer that donates $20 has their name put on a stocking, which is hung in the establishment during the holiday season. (Plus folks are welcomed to donate even higher! Last year, NY Knicks Coach David Fizdale, bought a stocking for $5K!) The fundraiser kicks off on Thanksgiving Eve, November 27, and continues through Christmas. And this year, inter-

Join our 8th Annual Fundraiser for this year's honoree:

’Tis the season of giving! What better way to give back than Stockings For a Cause? This year’s Honoree is Sergeant and proud infantryman Kristian Cedeno of Queens, NY. Kris spent 11 years in the Army. On his second deployment to Afghanistan he was severely injured by an IED resulting in the loss of his right leg above the knee. He also sustained severe burns and nerve damage to his left leg. Kris resides in Washington State with his fiancé and brand new baby boy! With your help we can give this growing family a Christmas they will never forget! On Saturday, December 7th, 1:30 p.m. don't miss locals Eugene Brennan and Joe O' Grady guest bartending at Jamesons for a special Stockings For A Cause event!

ested donators can even scan a barcode connecting to the online GoFundMe platform (www. gofundme.com/f/stockings-for-a-cause-2019) to make their $20 donation. (See the accompanying ad below). All donations will be offset as a tax write-off through local nonprofit, The Graybeards. Last year, roughly 20 establishments participated, and 25 are on board this year, including: Jamesons, Bungalow Bar, Pico RBNY, The Wharf and Harbor Light. Local establishments interested in joining in on the cause should email: Brennan at genobrennan@yahoo.com. Last year’s honoree was Sergeant First Class (SFC) Mark Holbert, who after his fourth deployment to Afghanistan, was severely injured by an IED (improvised explosive device), which left the Green Beret a double amputee with a missing thumb and finger, along with nerve damage up his arms, and both legs gone below the knee. With the proceeds, SFC was able to outfit the home Holbert shares with his wife and children with smart technology. When asked why Cedeno was selected as 2019’s honoree, Brennan said, “My brother-in-law knew him through his firehouse in Richmond Hill, Queens, and when Kris was serving in Afghanistan, he wore the firehouse engine and ladder company’s patch. Bringing it back to Queens this year was important as Kris is a Queens boy.” Cedeno, despite losing half his right leg after stepping on a 15-pound IED; suffering severe burns, nerve damage and infection throughout his left leg, traumatic brain injury, shattered teeth, dislocated jaw, ruptured ear drums, fractured six fingers and both palms, a broken nose, damage to his left eye and injury from shrapnel in various places of his body,

is still admirably fighting to be active in the Army. “Kris could have settled for medical leave and receive a good sum of money, but instead decided to stay active and just get his regular Army standard salary, which as we all know, these guys don’t make that much money. Obviously, every little bit helps, especially with him and his wife having a newborn baby. Hopefully, with this year’s fundraiser, we can offset some of these expenses for him and his family.” On Saturday, December 7, 1:30 p.m., Brennan with local, Joseph O’Grady, will be guest bartending at Jamesons to help with the fundraising effort. “Joe is a proud supporter and member of the Graybeards, who always gets people out. The more people, the merrier,” Brennan said. When asked why he is so dedicated to keep SFC going, Brennan said, “Why not? With all the people that are willing to help by giving to a complete stranger, who has honorably served our country, it’s the least I can do. Plus with the help from IGC and the neighborhood, and all the local bars, many hands make less work. We’re just looking forward to presenting Kris and his family with a check at the upcoming Graybeards Annual Dinner. That alone is thanks enough.” For more info, check out Stockings For A Cause on Instagram.

Rockaway’s Craftiest: Meet Rockaway Candle Co.’s Morgan Mack RT: So what does the sense of smell mean for you? Mack: Scents bring back memories of great moments in your life. For example, I do a lot of floral fragrances because I spent a lot of my childhood with my grandmother in her garden. That’s the best aspect about fragrance. Of the all the five senses, smell brings back memories as if they were yesterday.

By Kami-Leigh Agard

In this Rockaway Times series, we spotlight the eclectic band of crafty artists living on the peninsula. These individuals stand out not just because of their creativity and indisputable talent, but the oxygen fueling the passion behind their work—living and breathing in Rockaway. We hope this series gives readers the incentive to support these local artists, who invest their soul, time and energy in producing works of art that reflect what makes our peninsula an unparalleled place to call home. At just 23 years, Rockaway native, Morgan Mack, has some big accomplishments to crow about. This coming March 2020, marks five years since she launched her candle and home fragrance business, Rockaway Candle Co. (RCco). The young entrepreneur has built quite the following, with 2,400 followers on Instagram alone. However, what stands out most is her humility, and quiet determination to not just make her business successful, but those of fellow craft makers in Rockaway, a community of people that she says, “Values collaboration over competition.” RT: What inspired your business, Rockaway Candle Co.? Mack: I started candle-making in my junior year at Brooklyn College, where I was earning a degree in Mass Communications. Being in college, I was broke. Candles seemed like a cheap and easy way to make gifts for friends and family. I made a bunch, and honestly, I thought they looked pretty ugly as they had all these colors and strange scents and were in mason jars. I gave one to my friend, Tara McKiernan, co-owner of local boutique, End of the A, who liked them and offered to sell my candles in her store, and it just picked up from there. I never intended to start a candle-making business, but luckily, I had people in my life like Tara and my mom who really

encouraged, guided and taught me. For example, Tara taught me the retail and wholesale side of the business and my mom did all the pricing and crunching the numbers. Mentorship is really important because it’s hard to learn everything on your own. RT: You should feel so accomplished, but on your last Instagram post you shared, “I constantly teeter the line between being so happy with what I’ve built in RCco and being sad and disappointed that’s it’s not where I’ve imagined it would be at the five-year mark.” Why so hard on yourself? Mack: Sometimes I have to take a step back and realize that I’m still young. Social media today puts a lot of pressure on people. I was feeling so defeated and considering giving up because when you go on Instagram and see how awesome other people are doing and how many employees they already have, it makes you think that you’re not good enough. However, in retrospect, I’m glad I made that post. So many people responded saying, “Your post gave me so much inspiration because I’m going through something similar, and it’s good to know that I’m not alone.” I believe businesses small and large, definitely need to have more transparency. Raw honesty goes a long way with your followers.

RT: What are your candles made of? Mack: I use 100% soy wax, harvested and grown in the U.S. Large commercial candle companies tend to use a synthetic wax because it’s much cheaper and they burn out quicker, which keeps customers buying more. However, some of these synthetic waxes release carcinogenic soot and other toxins. Some fragrance oils have phthalates, which are solvents used to extend the aromatic strength of the oil and to make it look clear. Oils like patchouli have a yellow color, so some commercial candle companies add phthalates. A lot of my reed diffusers sometimes have a yellow or brownish tint to them. I always reassure customers that it’s actually better because that means it’s all natural without any harmful chemicals. RT: From candles, your collection has grown to also include reed diffusers, and room and linen sprays. What are your top sellers? Mack: In the candles, definitely the oak, moss and amber scent. A lot of people would describe the smell as a really nice men’s cologne. It’s not too masculine, and not super feminine, so both men and women enjoy it. With the reed diffusers, the sea salt and orchid from the Seaside Collection is really popular because it reminds people of the beach. And with the room and linen spray, the ocean air, also from the Seaside Collection, and lavender sprays are really popular.

still live in Rockaway. Do you believe that’s what gave you the momentum to start RCco.? Mack: Growing up here, the community was much different than it is now. Pre-Sandy, I used to say that I’m getting out of Rockaway, but now postSandy, I feel that I could see myself living here for the rest of my life, like my parents did. Having a deep-seated family life and roots here did push me to establish my business because I know the community will support me, just like I love supporting them. When I go to the markets, I know all the vendors. For example, if someone has a question about candle-making, I’m more than happy to share

what I know. What’s special about Rockaway’s craft makers is that we value collaboration over competition. RT: What’s your Rockaway street cred? Mack: It’s interesting that when I started my business with the name, Rockaway Candle Co., I was getting a lot of backlash from people saying that I was just like the hipsters trying to take Rockaway’s name. I’m like, what! I was born and raised here; crawled in my diapers on the beach. Rockaway is my roots, and my pride in being from this community shows in my product.

On Saturday, November 23, 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., Mack will be vending her Rockaway Candle Co. items at West End Temple’s SHOP ‘TIL YOU DROP annual holiday boutique (147-02 Newport Ave). Also check out Rockaway Candle Co. on social media platforms, Facebook and Instagram, or visit: therockawaycanRT: You were born, raised and dleco.com

A man who has mended the soles of locals' shoes for more than 30 years, is in need of a bit of mending himself. Word quickly spread this week that Leon Ganapolsky of Leon’s Shoe Repair was not in his shop located at 114-11 Rockaway Beach Boulevard. Instead, many were shocked to find that he’s been in the hospital, recovering from surgery related to bladder cancer. According to Ganapolsky’s family, the beloved shoe repairman was diagnosed with bladder cancer in November 2018. He underwent a few treatments that were unsuccessful, leaving him with surgery as his last resort. However, after learning about the possibility of a sixmonth recovery time, the surgery became his last priority. “He procrastinated for close to six months because he didn’t want to close the store,” his daughter, Sabina Kirfield wrote in a Facebook post on Friends of Rockaway Beach. Kirfield says she and her brother had to convince him to go through with the surgery. His family debated what to do with the store while Ganapolsky recovers. “At first we thought of sell-

ing the business because it would be very financially difficult to maintain a store with the overhead of rent, plus more, and without any revenue coming in,” Kirfield said. But with the store as his main passion, they decided to keep it as a source of motivation. “Our dad was very adamant about returning back to work,” she said. They were also motivated by the outpouring of love, support and prayers on Facebook as word spread about their father’s surgery. “Since he is

COMMUNITY SHOWS Continued from Page 18 a very loyal, dedicated and helpful person who loves his customers, and simply judging by the outpour of love and support, I think the feelings are mutual. So we decided it would be best to keep the store for him as a motivation for his recovery!� Kirfield said. To help cover some of the costs of keeping the store open while Leon is recovering, many suggested starting a GoFundMe account to raise money. Kirfield graciously accepted the idea. “Please feel free to help with any amount you can so Leon can fully recover without the extra financial burden stressing upon him, and he can come back to the Rockaways and keep his customers, and their feet, super happy,� Kirfield wrote on the GoFundMe page. As we go to press, just within four days, the account has raised more than $4,000. How long the recovery process will be is still up in the air, but the shop may be closed for at least two months. However, what’s most im-

portant, is that the man who heals soles, takes the time to heal himself. According to Kirfield, he’s doing well after his surgery this past week. “He is in great spirits,� she said. Ganapolsky was so moved by the outpour of love, support and funding to keep his store open, that he even recorded a video message in the hospital. “I want to thank all of my friends, customers, and relatives who donated for my speedy recovery. I hope, soon, I’ll be coming back. Thank you very much,� he said in the video posted to the GoFundMe page. By Tuesday, Ganapolsky was already back home, recuperating. In the meantime, those who may have items they need to pick up at the store can do so on Friday, November 22. Ganapolsky’s son will be there between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. If you don’t have anything to pick up, get well cards are also welcome. For those who can’t make it on Friday, there is a number on the door of the shop to call for more information about item pickup. Anyone wishing to donate can do so at: www.gofundme.com/f/ leons-cancer-surgery-recovery

Ask the DOC

By Peter Galvin, MD

Gluten Gluten is a food antigen found in wheat, rye, and barley. It has a high content of proteins rich in gliadin peptides, which are resistant to complete digestion and may cause an inflammatory response in the small intestine leading to celiac disease, also called celiac sprue and gluten-sensitive-enteropathy. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that affects approximately one percent of the U.S. population. While its exact cause is unknown, celiac disease is attributable to genetic and environmental factors. Over time, the disease damages the cells that line the small intestine. These cells form villi, hair-like

structures that increase the surface area in the intestine to facilitate the absorption of nutrients. Once the villi are destroyed, the person develops malabsorption, which may cause diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, bloating and gas, and anemia. In children, the disease may affect growth and development. Celiac disease often presents during childhood. Initially, it was reported that early or late introduction of gluten to infants increased the risk of the disease. It remains unclear whether the amount of gluten consumed triggers the disease. In order to clarify the risk of celiac disease in infants and children, a very

large study was performed at six clinical research centers in the U.S., Finland, Germany, and Sweden. The children were followed from birth to 15 years of age. The goal was to identify genetic and environmental factors associated with increased risk of Type I diabetes, celiac disease, or both (Type I diabetes and celiac disease are linked to each other as they are both autoimmune diseases). The children were screened for certain genetic markers associated with both diseases, and gluten intake was estimated from three-day food records kept by the parents. The study found that indeed higher gluten intake during the first five years of life was associated with a statistically significant increased risk of celiac disease in genetically susceptible children. They found that if gluten intake was just one gramper-day higher than the mean at just two years of age, the risk of getting the disease by age three was six to seven percent higher. To put this into perspective, one gram-per-day of gluten corresponds to a half slice of white

bread. The risks were significantly even higher if a child consumed more that two grams-perday at two years of age, meaning just one slice of white bread or a cup of pasta. In other words, the more gluten an at-risk child consumed, the higher their risk was of developing celiac disease. This contradicts some previous studies that proposed that adding small amounts of gluten early in life might desensitize at-risk children, much like the current recommendations for peanut allergies. The type of genetic screening done in this study is often unavailable outside of major medical and research centers, and the screening can be expensive. It is safe to say, however, that, based on this large, long study, the recommendation will be that for infants who have first-degree relatives with celiac disease or Type I diabetes, should be fed little-to-no gluten-containing foods, and that includes infant formulas.

Travels With Bob and Sandy THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS By Bob & Sandy Nesoff

There was a time when flying to warmer climes in winter or joining faraway family for the holidays was a treat. You’d go to the airport, check in and breeze through the gate without worrying about TSA, cavity searches or waiting on interminable lines. Around the same timeframe, you could actually drive on major roadways in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles (OK, so maybe not Los Angeles) without sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Both scenarios have long since been consigned to the dustbin of ancient history. Virtually any airport in the country will have lines backed up to tomorrow as you wait to clear security. Then sweat out whether or not your pull-a-long meets the newly stringent dimensions to be actually carried aboard the plane

and not soaked $50 or more to be placed in the belly of the aircraft, necessitating another long wait at your terminus until the aircraft is unloaded. Oh, the joys of history. There are ways around the long lines…sometimes. You can apply for a Global Entry Card or a Trusted Traveler Designation. Be aware that with the Global Entry Card, you don’t need the TTD. The cost for the former is $100 for five years and you are required to appear in person for the initial approval. Thereafter, you can renew online. Check with your credit card company if it is tied to an airline’s Frequent Traveler designation. Many of them will reimburse the cost of the card. With Global Entry, the government computers have archived your face and fingerprint. On arriving from a foreign destination

while others are lined up to go through immigration, you skirt the horrendous lines and go to a dedicated kiosk, insert your card, let it take a picture and check your fingerprint. You answer a few basic questions and a receipt prints out. Go directly to Customs and then out of the airport while your other passengers are still waiting in line to be admitted. Most airports have designated lines at security for Global Entry and TTC card holders that permit them to skip the heavy lines. But as the cards become more popular, those lines tend to grow as well. Another benefit of these government-issued cards is the fact that you don’t have to remove shoes and other articles of clothing. More recently, a new card has come on the horizon…the CLEAR Card. This card is touted as being better than the others.

However, that being said, the promotional cost for CLEAR is $179 for 12 months and it is accepted at only about 60 airports. But there’s always something new on the horizon and usually the newer the better. The new “Jump the line” method is called “App in the Air.” Now wouldn’t you know that there’s an app for everything. While the other cards give you preferred access, the App in the Air does not. What it really is, is a virtual assistant designed to expedite your travel through the airport. That combined with Global Entry, Trusted Traveler or CLEAR, can move you through the throngs still milling about and wondering in which direction to go. The App in the Air is free from an app store depending on which phone you use. For an Continued on page 29

 By Beth Hanning Holiday Jumping Next week is Thanksgiving. Why is Thanksgiving so shunned in society? I remember in elementary school, coloring wonderful pictures of cornucopias, and close dinner gatherings between the Native Americans and the Pilgrims at the first Thanksgiving. Is it because now the story is out and the origin is that we technically pillaged the Native Americans and caused their destruction that Thanksgiving is on its way out? Why doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Thanksgiving get any recognition in the world of media and retail? The only Thanksgiving tune that comes to mind is Adam Sandlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The

Thanksgiving Song.â&#x20AC;? However, that song was originally performed in 1992 on Saturday Night Live. Many â&#x20AC;&#x153;millennialsâ&#x20AC;? do not even know the popular culture references in the holiday song. Many know Elvis, but do they know Jimmy Walker from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good Timesâ&#x20AC;? or model, Cheryl Tiegs? No other popular culture singer or songwriter has managed to pen a tune to spending time with the relatives and eating and drinking to excess? They would not even have to be as original as Adam Sandler and write their own song. They could Google a list of Thanksgiving songs and remake an old song with an up-

dated beat, similarly to what many artists do with Christmas tunes. My suggestion: Bing Crosbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s song from Holiday Inn, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve Got Plenty to be Thankful For.â&#x20AC;? It is a catchy tune and someone out there should cover it! Forget about music. What about Thanksgiving films? I love to see the classic Steve Martin and John Candy 1987 film, Planes, Trains and Automobiles on television a few times during November. This comedy follows two men desperate to get home for Thanksgiving after their plane is cancelled due to weather. This is as good of a film as The Christmas Story and should be on as well for 24 hours during the Thanksgiving weekend, similar to the 24-hour feed that The Christmas Story receives during Christmas on TBS. Thank goodness for good ole Charlie Brown and his gang for delivering us some Thanksgiving cheer, even though the episode is 40 years old. I do not know why Thanksgiving is getting the shaft the last few years. A few years ago, I tried to get Thanksgiving paper goods about a week before Thanksgiv-

ing. None to be found, but the Christmas aisles were abundant. This year it was Amazon for the win for my Thanksgiving accessories. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I do not have to purchase gifts, wrap gifts and organize which gifts are going to which house. Let alone what to buy that picky relative, or what to get the man who has everything: my dad. I honestly have no idea what to get him this year. He has an iPhone 6 and has learned to Google. So while we have a week before Thanksgiving, let us enjoy the calm before the storm: Christmas. And please do not light your Christmas lights before next Friday. Holiday jumpers, you know who you are! Have a good week everyone. I would love to hear your thoughts on holiday jumping or the holidays in general. Email me at my new email: MrsHanning308@ gmail.com. I am low on ideas for columns and some of my best columns come from readersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; emails and friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; texts.

Rockaway Thanksgiving Memories 1940s By Jean (Caligiuri) McKenna

Jean (Caligiuri) McKenna recalls simple memories from a simple time of the Rockaway Beach she knew as a young girl growing up in the 1940s. Here is a peek into a Thanksgiving along the peninsula in a time when America and its allies waged the good fight overseas in World War II. Though I have no sentimental childhood memories of grand and festive Thanksgiving gatherings and family dinners, I do have joyous memories as a 10-year-old in Rockaway on Thanksgiving Day, dressing in old clothing, making holes in it, or using Mama’s apron, and with a paper bag, going from house to house and store to store, with other kids, looking like paupers, asking, “Anything for Thanksgiving?” I got pennies and cookies, and then we all “invaded” the local bakery, Piazza’s, on Rockaway Beach Boulevard and Beach 84th Street, where they obliged us with jelly doughnuts. This custom was the opposite of Halloween’s trick or treat. (On Halloween, we went around at night with scary masks or wearing white sheets like ghosts, peering in windows, knocking on doors and sometimes dangling skeletons in windows and screaming, “Boo!” and “Woo!” Thanksgiving offerings represented “thankfulness,” while Halloween represented fun, fright, and ghouls). Back to Thanksgiving. During these war years, it was only Mama, Papa, and me. No family, no company! All alone in our three-story house on Beach 84th Street, opposite St. Rose of Lima Church and Temple Israel (both still standing). My brothers were away in the armed services, and I felt sad because my sister, Irene (20 years my senior), had her own family, spending the holiday with them in her house on Beach 87th Street, by the concrete El, which then carried the Long Island Rail Road. World War II’s pall over the air was evident from Rockaway to Manhattan, with blue and gold starred windows denoting

many of the peninsula’s young men away overseas. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade was cancelled each year, owing to the need for rubber and helium in the war effort. In our home, we did not have turkey and the trimmings, but still gave many thanks, as Mama made a roast chicken dinner— which was always good. On one Thanksgiving, 1944, Papa’s friend, Mike Colontonio, stopped by. Mr. Colontonio was a bricklayer and widower, who had re-married a bi-racial woman from Tennessee. Her name was Ora. We became very good friends and she and Mama (whom she affectionately called Rosie) became especially close. She introduced Mama, (who emigrated from Italy to America via Ellis Island in 1929 at age 35), to a whole new world: going to the movies, taking the subway, and shopping sprees to Brooklyn in the A&S Department store on Fulton Street, where she had my mom buy me china, crystal glassware and sheets to put away for my trousseau. It was very important that young ladies have one, even though I wasn’t engaged to anyone! She was very influential! To our delight, Ora invited us to her home for Thanksgiving dinner. I was so excited! Ora had been a cook employed by wealthy people in Belle Harbor and I was looking forward to enjoying a traditional “American

as apple pie” Thanksgiving dinner. It was also a treat for Mama who never was relieved from her cooking tasks. So, we enjoyed turkey and stuffing, and most especially, delicious mashed sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows, which satisfied my pallet, and marked the beginning of my affection for sweet potato casserole. When I excitedly asked Ora to give Mama the recipe, she shook her head with a resolute “no” and said, “I don’t give anyone my recipes!” I was so hurt as well as disappointed.

How would my mother ever be able to make the delicious casserole without Ora’s recipe blessing!? Many years later, after I married, I found a recipe for sweet potato casserole, and I made it and still make it every Thanksgiving. Everyone loves it! It’s a “must have.” Hearing my own grown children say, “Thanksgiving isn’t Thanksgiving without Mommy’s sweet potatoes,” makes me feel so good! And I too, even though I no longer like to cook, would never stop making the delicious sweet potato casserole. Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be the same! I didn’t get the recipe from her on that indelible Rockaway Thanksgiving Day of long ago, but all these years later on Thanksgiving, when I make sweet potatoes, I forgivingly say, with gratitude, “Happy Thanksgiving Ora, wherever you are!” Give Thanks to the Lord for He is good -Psalm 136:1

FILM Thursday, November 21, 7 p.m. Far Rockaway NAACP presents the film, Blacks Can’t Swim. This 2019 short documentary follows black British filmmaker and hiphop artist Ed Accura as he explores the myths and stereotypes that surround black and other ethnic minorities when it comes to swimming. After watching an upsetting news report on bad weather and flooding, Accura develops an acute phobia with water. His anxiety with not being able to swim and irrational fears of drowning pushes him into buying a life jacket, which he wears everywhere he goes. See the film and join the discussion at Mt.

Say Hello and Thanks

At Thanksgiving, gratitude is the topic on most people's minds. From social media, to community events, and family gatherings, the emphasis is on how to identify what you're grateful for and express appreciation. With Thanksgiving only a week away, the Broad Channel VFW Prince-Wynn Post #260 on Shad Creek Road would like to take a moment to acknowledge the service and sacrifice of our nation’s

heroes. Because of their commitment, we can live free and full of hope for the future. Each day is an opportunity to show them how much we appreciate them and to push ourselves to new levels of excellence for their benefit. America’s Veterans are our priority, and it is a tremendous honor to provide them with the high-quality care and resources they need to lead healthier, happier lives. This Sunday afternoon, November 24, the men and women of the Broad Channel VFW Post #260 Auxiliary will once again host their annual Thanksgiving Dinner for the disabled veterans who reside at St. Albans Hospital. After tearful farewells to their families, these individuals went off to war where they saw and did things young men and women should not have to see or do. While many of them came home unscathed, many made the ultimate sacrifice and did not return, while others returned damaged in body or spirit or both.

What many of you may not realize is that, as the years pass, the pain of combat-related disability pales in comparison to the heartache of feeling forgotten by those who remained on the home front. Why not take a few minutes out of your busy schedule and stop by the VFW hall Sunday afternoon and introduce yourself to some of these vets and speak to them for a few minutes while thanking them for their service and sacrifice? Veterans have first-person accounts of history. If they feel comfortable talking about their wartime experiences, ask them to share a memory

with you—if they don't wish to talk about difficult topics, ask them about a favorite life memory. Listen intently so you can share their words—and celebrate their lives— for years to come. I guarantee you, the Vets will sincerely appreciate it and you will come away feeling better for the experience! Afterwards, stop by the canteen at the rear of the Post and say hello to and thank your friends and neighbors who work so hard and unselfishly throughout the year at the Post to ensure our veterans are not forgotten. The work of this group of individuals truly exemplifies the best of our small community here in Broad Channel and gives truth to the old adage that "Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community." Broad Channel, why would anyone want to live anywhere else?

On Tuesday November 26, the FDNY Turkey Trot 5k Fun Run will once again be taking place in Broad Channel. The BCAC Ballfield at the entrance to town (125 Crossbay Boulevard ) will host the registration which will start at 10:30 a.m. and the after-race awards and party. The run will go off at 11 a.m. and will follow the same course—north on Cross Bay Boulevard to the Addabbo Bridge and then back south to the field. Last year, the event had more than 300 runners and expectations are for a similar turnout this year. There will also be a "Chili Cook-off" competition for those who would like to partake. All proceeds will go to FDNY charities. More than $7,000 was raised at last year’s cook-off which benefitted Firefighters in Need. Dan Mundy Jr., of the FDNY and the president of the Broad Channel Civic Association said, “It will be a great day and we invite everyone to come out and run off some calories before the big Thanksgiving meal!” Mundy also asked to get the

word out from The Jamaica Bay Ecowatchers. The group is asking all those who care about Jamaica Bay to take a few minutes and contact the Governor at 518-474-8390 or email his office at governor.ny.gov/content/governor-contact-form and ask him to sign Assembly Bill 5767 (which is also Senate Bill 4165) to protect Jamaica Bay from the many plans to dump contaminated dredge material into the deep portions of the bay. The bay has been protected from this type of activity for over seven years, but the legislation that provides that protection is set to expire. Without this protection in place, the Ecowatchers expect to see a renewed effort on the part of agencies (such as NYC Economic Development Corporation) to use the bay as a way to save money, but also destroy the bay’s habitat.
