HOSPITAL BIDS $12 MILLION FOR NUMBER SIX SCHOOL; BIDDING PROCESS STILL ON By Danielle Puma Another bid was made to buy the property of Lawrence’s Number Six School on Church Avenue in Woodmere by Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan. The bid, reportedly over $12 million, includes about $600,000 for cleanup of the former elementary school. If the bid is accepted, the property may potentially be used as a multi-doctor

practice. Residents of The Five Towns have mixed feelings about the construction and its lasting effects. Mt. Sinai Hospital and developer Simone Development Companies placed the $12 million bid. Other bids for the school include $9.1 million by the JCC of the Greater Five Towns, $9.2 million by the Hebrew Academy of Long Beach, and another bid placed by a de-

veloper. Mt. Sinai outbids the other parties by about $3 million. According to David Sussman, Lawrence Board of Education Trustee and Republican candidate for New York State Assembly, the bidding for the property is still wide open and anyone that has a high bid is asked to contact the school board.


FIVE TOWNS REAL ESTATE MARKET REBOUNDING SLOWLY; BARGAINS FOR BUYERS, PRICES ARE FALLING By Raimundo Ortiz The Five Towns real estate market is currently very kind to buyers. A combination of depressed prices on homes and historically low interest rates have made the present an excellent time to buy a home. Interest rates are currently at three to four percent according to Marjorie Hausman, who said “these are the lowest interest rates I’ve seen in over 40 years of being in this business in The Five Towns.” Hausman, who recalls points in the 1980s where interest rates skyrocketed to 17 or even 18 percent said these low rates are a tremendous impetus for potential buyers. For sellers, this is not necessarily excellent news, but Lori Schlesinger has seen positive signs in the past few months. “Things are starting to move as of this past winter and it continued through the spring and summer,” said Schlesing-

er. There is a caveat, though. “The sales that are happening are below value,” said Schlesinger. “The buyers are getting houses at prices that are substantially lower.” According to realtors throughout The Five Towns, the severe drop was not a complete shock. “In 2004, 2005 and 2006 anyone with two arms, two legs and a pulse was getting a mortgage, which is totally out of line,” said Larry Chorne, a broker and sales manager at Island Advantage Realty. Schelsinger seconded Chorne when she said, “Although there’s a little improvement it’s not back to where it was. However, we were seeing numbers that probably shouldn’t have existed.” While there has been improvement in the market, Chorne is wary of a looming issue he called a black cloud hovering over the whole market — shadow inventory. According to Chorne, people

Times Getting Tough for Tiny the Ice Cream Man By Ryan Lavis

kled face. A custodian who stopped to buy a soda called Tiny a fixture of the community – “Everyone knows Tiny,” he said, ordering a diet soda. “No diet today, but I’ll have it next time,” Tiny responded, letting out an old-timers laugh as he said goodbye. But despite his loyal fan base and name recognition, tough times have hit Tiny as a summer of high gas prices, bad business, and repairs have left him wondering how much longer he has left in the ice cream business. “This truck is in bad shape,” he said, removing the oil stick and shaking his head in disappointment. These days, it burns oil constantly and needs a new engine. Chipped, green paint and a musky smell inhabit the interior, where three large coolers and a noisy compressor keep the product cold. “The only thing that works good still is the refrigeration,” Tiny said. And while ensuring that his ice cream doesn’t

As 89-year-old Dominick Magliaro shuffled around his white, rust-covered ice cream truck and lifted its hood to check the oil, one thing was for certain – this 1974 Chevrolet and its owner have seen better days. Known as ‘Tiny’ throughout The Five Towns, he and his truck – called ‘Tiny’s Ice Cream’ – have been a mainstay of the community for over 40 years. He mostly does business in the towns of Lawrence, Inwood and Meadowmere Park, peddling ice pops and beverages for about eight hours a day, sometimes seven days a week. Sitting in the Lawrence Middle School parking lot on a recent Tuesday morning, several people said ‘hello’ as they passed Tiny’s familiar, wrin-

Inwood Now in Mostly Queens Congressional District where Jennings is Challenging Meeks By Danielle Puma


ew York’s newly configured 5th Congressional District will extend from southeast Queens as well as parts of Nassau County including Inwood, Elmont and areas of Valley Stream. Inwood was shifted out of the 4th Congressional District after a federal court approved a new district map in March. U.S Rep. Gregory Meeks, the current representative of the 6th Congressional district, won the Democratic congressional primary on June 26. In November, he will be running against Republic nominee Allan Jennings to represent the new 5th District. If re-elected in November, Rep. Meeks has high hopes of creating jobs and bringing affordable health care to the 5th District. Other issues he will focus on are to protect Medicare, Social Security, and veteran benefits. He has

also been focused on making education accessible and affordable for everyone. To improve a student’s progress, he supports legislation that reduces class size by hiring more teachers and helps local school districts finance school renovations. Inwood resident John Moore said that he thinks Rep. Meeks is the go-to candidate because of his track record in office. He believes he has a strong approach to issues in regard to education and the economy. “Now that the town has been taken out of the 4th District, people need to adapt. We are a part of Queens. Someone needs to be representing us that cares about the kids in school and the people who live here. I also have family in Queens. We all need jobs and we need a better quality of education in some of these schools,” said Moore. According to Inwood Republican Club President Frank Mis-

Rep. Gregory Meeks tero, the issues that Jennings will focus on all deal with jumpstarting the district’s economy, particularly in Queens. “There will be a focus on school aid for the Lawrence School District. Other things to focus on will be providing good service and bringing back money

Republican nominee Allan Jennings to the community. It’s what the Republican platform has always been saying about education and providing jobs,” said Mistero. “It’s all about the economy no matter how you slice it. But most of the issues, I’d say 85 percent within the 5th District, are in

Queens.” Both candidates have different approaches and solutions to problems that will arise closer to the November election. But Rep. Meeks and Jennings have both experienced past scrutiny and allegations. Rep. Meeks was under investigation by the Department of Justice, the Office of Congressional Ethics and the House Ethics Committee. Federal investigators were looking into a number of things that seemed to have illegally benefited Rep. Meeks and other Queens politicians. In 2006, Rep. Meeks bought a house from a campaign contributor for $830,000 but it was assessed at $1.24 million by the City a few months later. He also received two loans to pay off the house -- a $40,000 loan in 2007 he received from a personal friend and a $59,650 loan in 2010 he used to pay off the earlier loan. Rep. Meeks was served

Hospital Bids $12 Million For Number Six School; Bidding Process Still On CONTINUED FROM P. A1 “We haven’t started the process of picking a bid since they have only been submitted. At the present time, all we are asking from them is bids. We have not negotiated with anyone. That comes after and that is with any deal that anyone makes. We talk to the bidders and other things come out. But we are far from that stage,” said Sussman. Sussman said the board will look at the terms of the bid and make a decision on what is best for zoning. If the school board accepts the bid, it will go to a public referendum where District 15 residents can approve or deny the sale.

In 2007, the school district sold the Number One School for $29.1 million and proceeds went to renovating schools within the district. That is about a $17 million difference of the highest bid placed for the Number One School to the Number Six School. Some residents feel that difference shows the plummet of the real estate market. “Unfortunately, because of the state of the market, we are aware that bids won’t be as high. We look at the bids in the same way as the Number One School bids, although they are not as high, the process has not changed,” said Sussman. Lawrence resident Christine Burke said this is not a good time to buy any

because that decision, whatever it is, needs to be for the good of the district and residents. Having a new multi-doctor practice may be a good thing because it will help out the local businesses,” said Burke.

with a subpoena in 2010 and allegations against the $56,650 loan were dismissed, but the status of the investigation of the remaining loan remains unknown. Allan Jennings served in the New York City Council from 2001 to 2005 and was censured by the council for the alleged sexual harassment of female employees. In 2009, he got into a fistfight with a council race opponent at the Board of Elections. In June 2012, he became the Republican nominee for the 5th District because he ran unopposed. Jennings also ran in the Democratic primary against three others, including Rep. Meeks, and lost. Mistero believes that Rep. Meeks is a strong challenge in the upcoming election due to his 14 years serving the people of the 6th Congressional District. “There is no question about it. [Rep. Meeks] has been there a while and is well-known,” said Mistero.

Cedarhurst resident Ana Feldman said there is the potential that a new doctor practice could have negative effects, but is hoping the school board would address these issues before a decision has been made. “Honestly, let’s hope more high bids come in because I think change is good. The only concerns that I have are the high volume of traffic this construction may cause, and if a new practice is built, this could jeopardize the local practices. That would not be looking out for the best interest of the town,” said Feldman. Sussman said that after 17 years on the school board, he hopes residents know that he likes to hear what people have to say in regard to any issue. “I’m hopeful that if there are people that have views, the only positive I can see is they should make their views known in a transparent fashion and [the board] will review them before making any decisions,” said Sussman.

Five Towns Real Estate Market Rebounding Slowly; Bargains For Buyers, Prices Are Falling CONTINUED FROM P. A1 who are three months behind on their mortgage payments (the minimum standard before banks file lis pedens) or more catch up at a rate of only four percent. However, they can remain in their homes for up to three years without making payments before they are forced to do short sales or go into foreclosure. Chorne sees these properties eventually flooding the market and causing the prices to dip even more. Schlesinger acknowledged this concern but does not think The Five Towns will bear the brunt of the shadow inventory’s wrath. “We’re not looking at an influx of that. Not all, but many people from

the area have family and friends who are affluent and somehow help so there aren’t many foreclosures,” said Schlesinger. As far as the properties that are moving, single-family homes are moving more than condominiums and co-ops. “The prices are good right now,” said Ronnie Gerber of Prudential Douglas Elliman. “People are seeing more value in houses because you can get more property.” In addition to more property the price gap between homes and condos or co-ops has shrunk in a big way. “Houses are now in the $300,000 to $400,000 range,” said Chorne, “whereas a few years ago you couldn’t afford a house so you bought a co-op or a condo for

somewhere near $250,000.” One trend that Hausman noted was an increased number of young people among the 25 closings she had this spring alone. “They’re buying homes anywhere from $400,000 to $700,000, many of them with help from their parents,” said Hausman. Strict guidelines on the maximum debt-to-income ratio that potential homeowners can have and still secure are being enforced by banks in the wake of the market’s downturn. During the housing market boom banks were giving loans to people with DTI ratios above 50 percent, but now anyone above 42 percent is struggling to get a loan, according to Chorne. Schlesinger believes that although times are tough, improvement is to be expected. “The market has not been wonderful, but the fact that houses have started to sell. Next year prices may go up, but it likely won’t be a big jump.”

Kids Step Up for Hewlett House CONTINUED FROM P. A1 Levine. “We can’t take away the disease but we can take away just about everything else that pertains to the disease,” said Barish. “We try to ease the pain of the unknown, through hugs, love, and support.” The young man behind the keyboard and capably performing “Piano Man”, was Michael Friedman, a Hewlett High School student who organized a concert featuring himself and his friends to raise money and awareness for the Hewlett House. “When you talk about young adults and music that’s right up our alley,” said Barish. “Cancer can be such a sad disease but we try to make Hewlett House a happy place to be and a lot can happen through music and kids.” Friedman’s efforts were greatly appreciated by Levine as well. “Michael is a wonderful young man with a good heart.” After a few songs, Barish paused the music to introduce a very special young woman, five-year-old Zoe

Five-year-old Zoe Slatest who took it upon herself to run a lemonade stand and donate all the money to the sufferers of breast cancer. She raised $61 and after her story was told at Hewlett House during a concert to raise awareness, those in attendance boosted her total to $101.

Kids Step Up for Hewlett House CONTINUED FROM P. A4 Slatest who was accompanied by her mother Irene. She also brought former Lynbrook Mayor Brian Curran to the forefront. Barish went on to explain that Zoe Slatest also wanted to help women with breast cancer. Zoe took it upon herself to put up a makeshift lemonade stand in Long Beach in front of the Kings and Things toy store, and raised $61 that was placed in a card she made herself. “People can’t resist a little girl selling lemonade,� said Irene Slatest. “People were so amazed though that

Zoe wasn’t keeping the money. ‘You’re not going to go buy toys with the money they asked?’ But she didn’t. She didn’t keep a single penny.� Her two aunts have been diagnosed with breast cancer, but amazingly, Zoe’s lemonade stand idea was conceived without any knowledge of her aunts’ situations. She became shy with all eyes on her, so her mother handed the card to Curran and they all took photos together. “I didn’t want her to just come and drop off an envelope,� said Barish. “I wanted it to have more meaning that that. She was entitled to have her moment to

shine and for people to say thank you.â€? Concertgoers were so moved by little Zoe’s kindness that they lined up after she was ďŹ nished presenting her card and pushed her total from $61 to $101 in mere minutes. Brian Curran is another ďŹ gure near and dear to Barish’s heart. “I am a believer that mayors can do a lot more than they sometimes actually do.â€? During his time as Mayor, Curran sent a crew to ďŹ lm a segment on the Hewlett House that eventually ran for several weeks on local television. “We received 17 phone calls

after he ran that,� said Barish. “Six of those calls were from young women who watched that show and found out they had cancer. Because they were so young and caught it so early it saved their lives. He relates to us and really cares. He went out of his way when it wasn’t election time, and those are the important times.� The combination of Friedman, Zoe Slatest, and great music made the event a rousing, touching success. Barish summed it up by saying, “All I could think of was this group of young kids doing this incredible thing, and then you have this generous little one (Zoe). How could I not combine these forces?�

Times Getting Tough for Tiny the Ice Cream Man CONTINUED FROM P. A1 melt is essential to any ice cream man, it isn’t enough for him to stay aoat. Tiny said his mechanic told him his truck – and inevitably his business – may have reached its ďŹ nal summer. Tiny said he spent about $3,200 on repairs this year. He estimates his gas bill to be around $4,000 – around the same as last year. He also pays a costly monthly insurance, plus a fee to store the truck at a gas station in East Rockaway.

On top of that, Tiny said people aren’t buying much from him this summer. “This is a loss – a total loss for the ďŹ rst time in years,â€? he said. “I’m trying to survive, but the buying power just isn’t there anymore.â€? Before becoming an ice cream man, Tiny attended an aviation school in New Rochelle. When the United States entered the War, he got drafted and served in the Army Air Corps. He was stationed at a

ly sold in Woodmere, but said his competitor, Good Humor, drove him out. “You couldn’t go up against them. It was tough. It’s always been tough surviving in this business. It was Good Humor then and it’s Mr. Softee now.” Back then, Tiny said he could buy a box of vanilla pops for $1.25, sell it for 15 cents, and still turn a profit. Gas only cost 40 cents a gallon, and customers always seemed abundant. Now, he said a box of pops costs him about $15. “I’m not making any money on this anymore. I lost my shirt this year,” he said. “It’s a null ending, but I always liked my customers and I like that everyone knows me.” Between his age, the arthritis he has in both hands, and the poor condition of his truck and business, Tiny said doesn’t know how much longer he’ll sell ice cream in The Five Towns. “When you reach a certain

After he was laid off from that job, he decided to go into business for himself. Tiny began selling ice cream from a walk around truck in the 1950s (basically a pickup truck with an attached cooler that required him to get out to serve the customer.) Tiny went through two other trucks before he acquired the one most Five Towners recognize today. At the time, the truck was in such bad shape that the man who gave it up didn’t even bother charging Tiny. “Oh forget about it, the truck was garbage when I got it. I don’t know how it’s lasted this long.” Tiny hired a flatbed truck and transported the truck back a gas station in East Rockaway – the same station he uses today. In those early days, he most-

He also has a strong affection for Franklin D. Roosevelt, and said “it’s been all downhill since he left office.” When he returned home, Tiny never got married or had kids – “There was no such thing as the right one for me,” he said. He worked at an oil refinery in Inwood. But he said he had awful experiences working there, and soon left to drive a truck for a railroad company.

Participation and Grades Up Across LHS Sports Programs By Raimundo Ortiz

Aside from the Conference III champion football team, Lawrence offers boys and girls teams in soccer, volleyball, and cross-country track and field. They also offer boys golf, but female golfers are welcome to join. Lawrence’s boys’ volleyball team is the most prestigious non-football group in the school. “Boys volleyball is a perennial playoff team, and we have a good number of them coming back so we expect to be there again this year,” said Pizzarelli. The girls’ volleyball


n America, football is king and at Lawrence High School that fact remains unchanged. Despite the football program’s success and prominence it is not the only sport being played by Golden Tornadoes this fall. Patrick Pizzarelli’s athletic department offers a host of teams Lawrence High School students can join to satiate their competitive desires, and according to Pizzarelli, the students are chomping at the bit. “Participation continues to go up. We’re getting a lot more kids involved and we also want them to improve academically too,” said Pizzarelli. He said that the last few years his goals of academic improvement among the athletes have been met.

Lawrence High School athletic director Patrick Pizzarelli is very proud of his reigning Nassau County champion football team, but has high hopes for all of his Lawrence teams, as well as high expectations for their grades.

team has not enjoyed the success of their male counterparts, but head coach David Mayerson, a former student at Lawrence High School, was brought in last year and the team got better, according to Pizzarelli. “Boys soccer has been in the playoffs every year or on the verge,” said Pizzarelli. “Even though we’ve only had one practice we’re expecting a playoff season.” He also expressed confidence in the direction of the girls soccer program. “The girls haven’t won a lot but last year they won more than one or two games. We’ve seen improvement.” Pizzarelli showed comparable confidence in the golf and cross country programs. He noted that Lawrence is returning their top two golfers and had a young team last season

that is now more experienced. As far as the two cross-country squads go, “We aren’t going to light anything on fire, but we’ll definitely compete and represent Lawrence well.” Still, Lawrence’s athletic director couldn’t hide his excitement for the upcoming gridiron men. “We have the number-one rated team in the conference in football, that plays on our synthetic turf field which we believe is the best on Long Island.” Pizzarelli also said that he is happy with all his teams as long as they “play the game right, behave like good sportsmen, and represent themselves and Lawrence the way they should. Obviously injuries in any sport can change things, but besides that we’re optimistic about all our fall sports teams.”

Pick Wick Defeats The White Shul, Remains Undefeated By Raimundo Ortiz


hen the White Shul and Pick Wick took the field Sunday morning, Pick Wick was looking to protect their spotless record this season while The White Shul was fighting for their playoff lives. Unfortunately for The White Shul, their desperation could not pull off the win, falling 4-1. With their ace Eli Shapiro on the hill, The White Shul began the game well enough. After retiring leadoff hitter Ephraim Templeman, Shapiro walked Evan Blachman then surrendered singles to Adam Ofman and Shmuel Gestetner. Shapiro buckled down after that inducing a groundout to the mound by Yossi Davidson that forced out Blachman at home plate, and then a pop up to short by Ezzy Unger to end the inning without any damage done. In the bottom of the first Doniel Pearlman slapped a single, moved to third on an Ari Glazer single, and then scored on a third base hit by Dovid Bloom. Pick Wick starter Ushi Rosen retired the next two batters to end the inning, but The White Shul had jumped out to a 1-0 lead in this must-win contest. In the top of the second, Rosen led off with a single for Pick Wick, but the eight, nine, and ten hitters were dispatched quietly by Shapiro to end the threat. The bottom of the second was the mirror image of the top. Number seven hitter and starting pitcher Shapiro singled to

(From left) Yossi Davidson, Ephraim Templeman, Ezzy Unger, Shmuel Gestetner, Ari Bodner, Adam Ofman, Evan Blachman, Bari Azman, and Ushi Rosen, and Zemi Unger, comprise Pick who knocked off The White Shul 4-1 on Sunday, keeping their record a pristine 8-0 while dropping The White Shul to 4-4. Pick Wick has a chance to complete an unbeaten season against 0-8 Woodsburgh on Sunday. lead off followed by three consecutive outs, the last of which was a strikeout looking. After two The White Shul was clinging to their one-run lead. In the bottom of the third, Pick Wick came alive. Templeman kicked off the third frame with a double. Blachman flew out to right field in the next atbat, but Ofman bailed him out with an RBI triple. Gestetner sin-

gled home Ofman and just like that The White Shul’s lead disappeared into thin air. The bottom of the third was a fruitless endeavor for The White Shul. Pearlman worked a one-out walk but he was the only base runner in the inning. Shapiro showed toughness in the top of the fourth, retiring Ari Bodner, Bari Azman, and Zemi Unger in order, hoping the of-

fense would come alive behind him. The bottom of the fourth inning only brought more frustration, however, for The White Shul who seemed to be pressing. Zezzy Fuld, Sruly Lieber, and Shapiro were retired onetwo-three and the entire lineup seemed to be under a spell cast by Rosen. In the top of the fifth, Pick Wick cemented their lead. Evan

Blachman jump-started the offense with a one-out single, followed by a pop-up out by Ofman and a single by Gestetner. With Blachman on third and Gestetner on first, Yossi Davidson rose to the occasion and cracked a two-run double to push Pick Wick’s advantage to 4-1. The bottom of the fifth was gloomy for The White Shul, as Aaron Jonas was the only person able to get

on base, via base on balls. Shapiro never showed frustration with the offense’s inability to score runs and kept his composure on the mound. He got Rosen to fly out to center field, then surrendered a hard single to Bodner. After the single, he set down the ninth and tenth hitters to end the inning. The bottom of the fifth showed promise for The White Shul, but was eventually snuffed out by Rosen. Pearlman tried to spark the team with a leadoff single, his second hit of the game and the third time he reached base in his three at-bats. Glazer flew out to right field and then Bloom singled. With men on first and second with only one out, powerhitting outfielder Fuld stepped up to the dish and hit the ball hard to right field, only to see it settle into a mitt for the second out of the inning. The story was the similar for Lieber, who failed to drive in a run on his hard liner to left field. After Pick Wick was retired in order in the top of the seventh and final inning, Rosen coldly slammed the door on The White Shul after a leadoff double by Shapiro. The 4-1 loss could be a death blow to The White Shul’s playoff hopes. Captain Sruly Lieber lamented the midseason vacation of Shapiro that cost him two games. “Those two games without Shapiro killed us,” said Lieber. “It’s a totally different season if he doesn’t go on vacation.” Pick Wick will be defending their 8-0 season against winless Woodsburgh (0-8) this Sunday.

Girls Volleyball, Boys Soccer Looking Strong for LWA By Raimundo Ortiz

The boys’ varsity soccer team was also a strong component of LWA’s athletic program last year, finishing their season second in the IPPSAL standings and bowing out of the semifinals in the playoffs. According to Weiss, the Tigers’ are returning the nucleus of the team and only lost two starters to graduation. He is expecting another competitive season and playoff berth. They will kick off the year against The Waldorf School of Garden City on September 12th. The girls’ soccer team was not as successful on the pitch as the boys, but


awrence Woodmere Academy Athletic Director Jeff Weiss has high hopes for the school’s fall sports program, and expects his teams to compete at a high level and represent LWA with equal prowess. Weiss touted LWA’s girls’ volleyball team as perhaps the school’s finest unit. “The girls’ volleyball team was very strong last year,” said Weiss. “They were second in the league (Independent Private Parochial School Athletic League) last year and are returning four of their six starters. These girls were just points away from winning the league.” They begin their season September 20th against The Kew Forest School.

On August 1st, Nassau residents will head to the polls to vote on a $400 million bond issue that would allow for the construction of a new sports arena at the current location of the Nassau Coliseum, this would be the new home for the New York Islanders. However, the general consensus is that the average Five Towner hasn’t even heard of the plan on the special election. The plan would keep the team in the county through 2045 under the deal, as well as provide a new venue for concerts and other events. The bond also calls for the construction of a baseball stadium that would be home to an Atlantic League of Professional Baseball team. Nassau County’s Office of Legislative Budgeting says the plan will cost the average Nassau County homeowner on a property worth $400,000, about $58 per year, however County Executive Ed Mangano has projected that the plan will cost tax payers an average

No Solutions in Sight for Plane Noise TEXT AND PHOTOS BY SCOTT P. MOORE Representatives from the FAA and JFK Airport assured residents and local government officials action was being taken to try and alleviate air traffic noise at a Monday evening meeting of the Town-Village Aircraft Safety and Noise Abatement Committee (TVASNAC) in Lawrence Village Hall.

“This is not a rehash of the previous meeting,” noted TVASNAC executive director Kendall Lampkin, calling the meeting a “part two” instead. He clarified TVASNAC was not a lobbying group, but rather a sounding board for both residents and officials to discuss solutions. “We reemphasized what the criteria for runway selection are,” noted David Siewart, Air Traffic Manager at the JFK Air

We have been aware for some time of the financial challenges Peninsula faces and we have both short-term and long-term plans in place to care for Peninsula patients who wish to use our services.” In preparation, St. John’s said in a statement that once the state approves their expansion plans, they will start increasing the capacity of the emergency room, ambulatory care, surgery, intensive care and in-patient facilities, Toebbe said. St. Johns may also hire Peninsula employees if Peninsula closes. They number of employees hired will vary, but it could be 250 employees, nursing staff in particular. “We will do our best to be

Trinity-St. John’s Episcopal Church, a parish with an unmistakeable landmark house of worship on Broadway in Hewlett, recently celebrated its 175th anniversary. “We are acknowledging the legacy given to us,” said Reverend Owen Thompson, Rector of the parish for the last six years. “We are looking, not only at the past, but the present and the future.” Thompson said the anniversary was significant for his con-

gregation especially due to the changes in both the demographics of the local area, especially with many churches closing, and how people perceive God in their everyday lives. “We are here to stay… and there’s much we want to continue to do for the next 175 years.” Trinity Church was founded on May 3rd, 1836 as Trinity Chapel, a mission of St. George’s Church in Hempstead. The chapel itself would be erected and completed a year later on May 8th when it was consecrated by the Bishop of the Diocese of New

York. The chapel, moved 100 feet north of its original location during the 1870’s to make room for the current church, now serves as the home of Trinity Church’s offices, school, and social events. The chapel would separate from St. George’s in 1844 and be called Trinity Church, Rockaway. In May 1878, the current church building would open its doors for the growing population of the area. In 1978, Trinity Church would merge with Far Rockaway’s St. John’s Church to form Trinity-St. John’s Church, due to decreased attendance and finan-

A golf ball rests on the green no less than five feet from the hole, on a barely noticeable hill which is tormenting its owner from putting it in its final resting place. Jimmy Margiotta, a food services business owner from Long Beach, is crouched down staring at the slight incline, using his putter for leverage. A slight frown appeared on his face before he stands up. “Jon!” he called out. “What do you think? Slightly uphill, right?” A young man donning a green pull-over vest atop a white polo and khaki shorts jogs over from where he was holding the hole’s flag marker and crouches down where Margiotta had been a moment before.

ur vests, and oversized sweaters in brick reds, blacks, and jewel tones are just some of the trends that fashion-forward female Five Towners will be wearing this season. Fur seems to reign as the top trend among local stores like Lonny’s, Flirt, and Sheryl David. Contrary to popular belief, however, fur doesn’t have to be a splurge; faux-fur capelets and vests are practical, chic, and versatile. Using accessories like a waist-cinching belt or layering a sweater underneath makes it flattering for nearly everyone. When it comes to showing skin, less is more, but off-the-shoulder tops and dresses with open-backs will add a touch of allure without giving too much away. Fitted cardigans have been traded in for chunky sweaters, leaving prim and proper styles in the past for a more relaxed and bohemian look. Leggings and a good pair of jeans are fundamental, but options like leather leggings and flared jeans create more interesting looks. Corduroys are an emerging trend rising in popularity, and some buyers, like at Lonny’s, swear that the impeccable fit make it a must-have.

In the world of dresses and flirty casual wear, black is back, lace is in, and fur is taking over. “Start with a little fur vest, layered with a bulky sweater, and finish it with a belt,” advised buyer and stylist, Maria Danca. To transition a summer piece into fall, like a long and whimsical maxi skirt, pair it with a sweater or leather jacket, Danca said. Emeralds, sapphires, and deep purples are this season’s go-to colors. The jewel tones and a touch of sequins or beads are just the right amount of glitz, according to Danca. “No matter what figure you have, a safe dress is a beaded dress because it’s forgiving of figure flaws.” As far as lengths and cuts go, Danca noted that a micro-mini only really works for beaded dress, but a dress hitting right above the knee is sophisticated and classic. High necklines and open backs in dresses add flair without going too over the top, Danca said. The average price of tops and dresses are $98-$398. “Buy the navy or black dress, or a beautiful silk top,” Danca added. “They last. Invest in classic pieces and add trend with an accessory.” Flirt was opened a little over a year ago by owner, Carla Haynes. Danca is previously the owner of The Strapless Dress boutique in Lynbrook. “Flirt is a place you come for a special occasion, for a birthday dress, party dress, date dress, dress,” Danca said. “It’s a more going out look. We have a few long, formal gowns, too.” • Flirt is located at 5 Franklin Avenue in Hewlett. (516) 295-0206. Flirtfabulous. com.

Hewlett’s Jermey Leguillow gets great blocking on a run up the middle. Lawrence seemed more than eager to put the nails in the coffin as Tyler Fredericks rushed 56 yards down the field on the team’s next possession for another touchdown, giving the Golden Tornadoes a 26-10 lead, followed by a two-point conversion from Lawrence sophomore quarterback Joe Capobianco to freshman wide receiver Jordan Fredericks, Ryan and Tyler’s brother, for a 28-10 lead. Hewlett turned the ball over on downs in four plays and the Golden Tornadoes took advantage. Capobianco threw 35 yards to wide receiver Eddie Robinson for another touchdown. The extra point kick was good and Lawrence went up 35-10. The Bulldogs refused to go down quietly and mounted a huge comeback. On their next possession, Leguillow rushed two yards into the end zone to bring the team within 18 points at 35-17. An onside kick gave Hewlett the ball back and the Bulldogs capitalized with quarterback Zach Richman throwing to wide receiver Sam Grill for an 11-yard touchdown pass. A faked

extra point kick turned into two more points as Grill ran the ball into the end zone to tighten the lead to 35-25 at half time. After the teams came back on the field in the third quarter, Hewlett continued to pick up steam. Two plays into Lawrence’s possession, Capobianco was picked off giving Hewlett the ball deep in their own zone. The possession produced no points, but the shock and anger was evident on the Lawrence bench. On the Bulldogs next possession, Richman found wide receiver Sam Martorella for 16 yards and another touchdown. The Bulldogs closed the gap to three points at 35-32. The tight score seemed to wake up the beast in the Lawrence offense, however. Tyler Fredericks rushed 72 yards down the field into the end zone for a touchdown, his third of the day, and putting the Golden Tornadoes up 42-32. The Lawrence defense, seemingly missing in the second quarter, prevented the Bulldogs from getting a first down on their next possession and quickly got the ball back to the offense.

Hewlett received the ball first and things looked promising on the team’s first drive down the field that took the Bulldogs 87 yards over 11 plays, but the Lawrence defense prevented Hewlett from reaching the end zone. The Bulldogs were forced to go for the field goal which put the team up 3-0. Lawrence struck right back on their first possession with senior runningback Ryan Fredericks rushing four yards for his first touchdown of the day and a 7-3 Golden Tornadoes lead in the first quarter. Ryan’s brother, junior runningback Tyler Fredericks, also added another touchdown in the opening minutes of the second quarter to give Lawrence a 14-3 lead. Two plays into Hewlett’s first possession of the second quarter, Lawrence defender Mike Fragner intercepted the ball and ran it over 30 yards to the Hewlett 11yard line. Two plays later, Ryan Fredericks rumbled through the Hewlett defensive line and barely into the end zone for another touchdown, giving Lawrence a 20-3 lead. Hewlett, down 17, was not finished though. On the Bulldogs’ next possession, the offense pushed down the field 55 yards before Jeremy Leguillow rushed nine yards into the end zone, bringing Hewlett back within ten at 20-10.

The team gave up the majority of its lead during the final eight minutes of the second quarter. “They had a couple of big plays on us and that on-side kick.” During the Hewlett comeback, the only sounds from Lawrence’s fans, coaches and some players was to referees as six flags came out for penalties, most against the Golden Tornadoes.

Ryan Fredericks scored four touchdowns in the game, giving him thirteen straight games with a touchdown since last season... 62 points was a new season high for Lawrence’s offense, but the 32 points given up was the most in four games as well... wide receiver Eddie Robinson had one of his best days of the year with two receptions and one touchdown as well as two fumble recoveries on defense.

ewlett Bulldogs Varsity Football saw its season come to an end on Saturday when they fell to the Lawrence Golden Tornadoes in the second slugfest between the two teams this season. Hewlett got back into the game when, down 35-10 in the second quarter, they scored 22 straight points to make it a three point game. That was all she wrote for the Bulldogs though, as Lawrence dashed their hopes by stepping up defensively and scoring 27 un-

answered points of their own to win 62-32. “We fought hard,” Starting Running Back Jeremy Leguillow said. “It’s just that we couldn’t finish in the second half. They are a very good team, but I feel like we should have won. They came back hard and we didn’t know what to do. We didn’t regroup the way we wanted to, but it was a good game.” Leguillow scored two rushing touchdowns in the game for Hewlett. “I’m just so happy that I got to play on Varsity this year,” Leguillow said. “All of the seniors are

like crying right now. They wish we had this game back, but it was a great experience and a great season.” After the game, Hewlett Head Coach Jay Iaquinta was not pleased with the result, but was happy about his team’s performance. “We are real proud of our kids,” Iaquinta said. “All we asked them to do is give us effort for the full 48 minutes. We’re thrilled with the effort they gave us. We had a lot of adversity. We had some injuries and a lot of things to deal with. These kids persevered all the way through and never stopped fighting. Lawrence is a re-

ally good football team. We probably had to score one more time in the third quarter. We didn’t and that gave them an opportunity to score. It kind of got away from us.” Iaquinta is looking forward to next season now and is excited about some of his breakout players making strides next year. “We have some good kids coming back in Richman and Leguillow plus some good kids at the end,” Iaquinta said. “We’re a grunt team. We have to work hard and we have to make up for deficiencies with hard work in the off-season.”

Weiss chalked that up to their youth. “Girls’ soccer was very young last year, but we have two ninth graders that are exciting,” said Weiss. Weiss noted that relying on ninth graders does not help the fact that the Lady Tigers’ youth was a problem last season, but he believes the new players’ talent overrides that concern. These new additions will get to strut their stuff on the road September 19th when they take on The Waldorf School of Garden City. LWA also offers a co-ed cross-country team that is always competitive if rarely spectacular. Weiss trumpeted the turnout that LWA sports teams attract, and is very proud of the school’s “no-cut” policy. “Large groups of kids participate here and is a philosophy of ours to be

competitive but also give everyone an opportunity to play,” said Weiss. “I don’t want to be the person to tell a 16-year old kid that he can’t do what he wants to do. We give our kids a chance to play and achieve their goals and we’ve also remained very competitive.” Their season starts on September 20th when they will try to outrun Long Island Lutheran. Academically, Weiss said participating athletically has generally been a positive in the classroom. “This school is tough. The courses are rigid and the kids take lots of AP classes,” said Weiss. “It’s preparing them for college. I think it gives them better time management skills. The standards are high academically but our athletes tend to be on the higher end of that spectrum.”

Political Theater

y the time you read this, the balloons will have all descended on the GOP National Convention and the turbocharged delegates will have decamped for their respective homes. The Republican all-stars will have given their rhetorical all. Some Americans were persuaded to vote for the Romney-Ryan ticket, some had their beliefs confirmed and some were unmoved entirely. Republicans proved they can field a diverse team of Baby Boomer and Gen-X women, blacks and Hispanics (and some were women and Hispanic) along with the usual cadre of middle-aged white guys. There is a stark contrast between the GOP’s positions and those of the Democrats, who’ll be having their convention after Labor Day in North Carolina. Aside from the multitude of giant screens behind the podium in Tampa, the GOP convention was a pretty standard and formulaic affair, its what we’ve come to expect from made-for-TV conventions in the last 20 years. Long gone are the days when nominations were in doubt, in play or subject to suspense. We listen to a hundred different ways to make the same point and the Democrats will do the same thing in their three days of speeches next week. Where the conventions will differ though is on the final night when the party’s nominee will make his acceptance speech. Like 2008 and every convention before, the GOP nominee makes his speech from the same podium everyone else spoke from. On the other hand, the Democrats, with the advent of Barack Obama have taken their show outdoors. In 2008 then candidate Obama spoke to a huge crowd at Denver’s Mile High Stadium. This year the Democrats are visiting Bank of America Stadium, home of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. The stadium seats about 74,000 plus more seating on the field. This is a far cry from traditional convention centers and basketball arenas that typically hold 15,000 to 20,000. Frankly, we find something oddly totalitarian-esque about political mega rallies with almost 100,000 people even though the intent is totally the opposite. Hordes of political acolytes in those numbers remind us of the endless sea of faces we see in televised images of North Korea’s Kim Jung Il personality cult rallies or the kind of thing we used to see on May Day in Red Square. That everything will be televised from probably two dozen cameras for consumption and inculcation of the broader masses is reminiscent of Leni Riefensthal’s Triumph of the Will. It’s not that the Republicans can’t put 80,000 in a stadium (no problem in the Sunbelt) it’s that never in our history were American political conventions turned into giant rallies of faceless masses walking in lockstep in salute to the “Great Leader.” The coming grandiosity of the Obama acceptance rally is indicative of the Democratic Party’s state of mind – spare no expense in pursuit of the goal regardless of whether it is fiscally prudent to do so or fits in with the way Americans have been doing things for centuries. The stadium rally is huge and expansive, just like the Obamacare legislation and just like the extra $5 trillion (that we didn’t have) spent by the President since assuming office. By the way, there are one million millions in one trillion, so the President’s unprecedented $5 trillion in spending amounts to five million millions. Boggles the mind. Kind of like the image the Democrats intend on projecting on TV to more than a hundred million Americans next week. From where we’re sitting the Democrats’ numbers are out of control whether in packing a football stadium or spending our grandchildren’s money (and borrowing from the Chinese to do so). In these tough economic times, a more scaleddown acceptance speech would have been more appropriate, just as a more scaled-down government will soon be a necessity if we’re to avoid becoming the next Greece.

Personal Liberty


n many respects there is a fundamental contradiction in logic that pervades a huge chunk of the Republican Party. At their convention there was no end of talk about freedom of this and freedom of that along with freedom from this and that. Yet there is one aspect of the GOP that is not in alignment with all of this and those are the areas of personal status – abortion and same-sex marriage. The GOP wants to ban both of these things. This is incompatible with advocating for all the other kinds of unbridled freedoms. We’ve written before that the government ought not be in the marriage business at all. Government shouldn’t be sanctifying any kind of intimate interpersonal relationships. Let folks sign civil property contracts and then have any ceremonies they want, free of government permission or registration. Additionally, abortion is the law of the land and it will take a constitutional amendment to overturn it (which is highly unlikely to pass most of the states) and even if that happened, individual states could still legalize it, as New York did before Roe vs. Wade. Given that, the GOP should not get into that debate. Thankfully, Mitt Romney is at least a moderate on the issue. For the GOP to become a true majority party, it needs to get out of the business of prissy Puritanism or any kind of religiouslytinged compulsory behavior and let grown-ups decide these things for themselves. Religious people won’t get many abortions or see a lot of Gay marriages. Secular people will. Live and let live. The GOP needs to be the party of personal freedom, not just of economic liberty. A party focused on fiscal, defense and foreign policy issues has a real shot at an enduring majority. Inserting oneself into peoples’ bedrooms is a losing proposition.




word of caution to my fellow Republicans; don’t go long on President Romney t-shirts. I’m pretty sure that in a district that went overwhelmingly for McCain in 2008, my vote included, Mitt does not have to worry about winning The Five Towns. Nonetheless, despite the conservative bent in suburban neighborhoods like ours, New York State is still blue and will likely go to Obama in November. The real battle for the White House will be fought in states like Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania, the ubiquitous “swing states” where the outcome is less obvious and polls show a tight race. That is precisely why I’m bearish on Romney’s overall chances, he should be killing it, he’s not and the convention that nominated him is not helping. Romney may have had to make a right turn on the way to Tampa but if he doesn’t get into the middle lane soon, he’ll never reach Washington. Sorry folks, but Rick Santorum’s speech in prime time was just as scary as Pat Buchanan’s at the ‘92 GOP convention. I get it; he earned a spot there by winning a bunch of primaries, but unemployed and under-employed folks in Ohio and Pennsylvania care about their pocket books, not abortion. That bull in a china shop Chris Christie did not win Romney votes bashing unions and

American labor, many of those people are conservative by nature but they have to eat. Even Ann Romney who was eloquent and elegant couldn’t help shed Mitt of his biggest albatross, the silver spoon, Wonder Bread image he has that just won’t play well in Allentown. Obama is a lot of things but he is not Jimmy Carter. The economy may still be dragging along, the recovery sluggish, but most people are not worse off than they were four years ago. They may not be better off, but unlike 2008 no one really thinks we’re moving completely backwards. Additionally, Obama has been anything but weak on national defense. An issue that buried Carter, it is unlikely to make any undecided voter’s top ten list this year. Romney needs to beat the drum of the one message that can get him elected; that the hope and change Obama promised never panned out. Lots of people were enamored with the image Obama portrayed in 2008 and he conveyed it quite well, just ask Hillary Clinton. He fed the hearts of a disappointed and dejected electorate with the image of transformative leadership – what they got was a mediocre technocrat who increased the national debt without creating too many jobs. Romney won’t win this election trying to convince people that Obama will take away their guns, that abortions will become available at your local CVS, that we are slowly becoming socialist, that he is anti-business, that he wasn’t born here or that he is a Muslim. He needs to convince people that he offers an alternative that will work, that he feels their pain and that despite anything said about him he can do the job of making people’s lives better. If we keep hearing about guns and abortion from the GOP, the likely result will be voters holding their nose while pulling the lever to reelect Obama.


Reject the Albany Pay Raise By Dr. David J. Sussman


ere’s a way to make more money. Tell your boss you just voted to give yourself a 20 percent raise. Sounds crazy, but rumor has it, that’s exactly what your representatives on the New York State legislature plan to do right after the November elections. By the way, the not-yet-scheduled salary bump is not so much a rumor, but more like the worst kept secret in Albany. Lawmakers deny planning an increase, but many are just as quick to justify such a move by pointing out that Albany’s last pay raise vote, for 36 percent, was back in 1999. Assembly Majority Leader Sheldon Silver supports the argument by saying that, “Any full-time job where there hasn’t been a raise in 14 years, people ought to look at it — if the economy is right.” His logic fails at several points. First, being an Albany legislator is not a full time job; it’s considered a part time job. Second, it’s hard to sympathize about the 14-year gap knowing that the base salary for a New York State lawmaker is already $79,500, the third highest in the nation. Ranking first and second are California ($95,000) and Pennsylvania ($82,000), respectively. Albany’s barely-secret pay hike scheme is to increase base salary to $100,000 in 2013, catapulting New York State’s lawmakers to the top of the salary scale. That’s even more money than it appears because the dollar value of the base salary increase is only the beginning. It doesn’t include the additional $171 representatives receive for every day they spend in Albany, and “lulus,” which are extra bonuses worth tens of thousands of dollars given to committee chairmen, and those in other in leadership positions. The largest failure in Majority Leader Silver’s statement is how he could even contemplate there being an “if” when it comes to the economy. Responding to the same question about a salary raise, Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos dismiss-

es the 14-year gap, stating unambiguously that, “… circumstances now are you just can’t do it.” And the circumstances certainly are unambiguous. New York is still suffering the effects of America’s worst economic downturn since the 1930s, and remains mired in the slowest, weakest recovery in U.S. history. What can possibly be right in an economy where unemployment in New York City is about 10 percent, the Nassau police force is forced to downsize, and Nassau University Medical Center just lost over 400 jobs? Incredibly, where Majority Leader Silver’s “if” should have signaled the end of the discussion, was just the beginning. Just look at the cynical calculation to hide the truth about this raise until after elections -- when it’s too late to harm wobbly incumbents, and too soon to affect the next election cycle. It just spells out everything wrong with the corrupt and broken Albany culture. This is the same culture that created an unsustainable pension system, outrageous tenure policies, and the Tri-borough Amendment that precludes virtually any chance of fair union contract negotiations. Rigged for abuse, these contribute to forcing public sector salaries up and up, with no relief, by never failing to put the demands of special interests before the needs of regular taxpayers. Yet they say they need a raise. Does someone like incumbent Assemblyman Harvey Weisenberg need a raise? While he takes home close to $200,000 a year (because he draws a salary and a pension for the same job), the median household income in New York is $55,603 -- and that’s only those fortunate enough to still have a job, and hold on their homes. I say, until Albany fixes the mess Albany made, we must answer their demand to take more of our money with our demand that they do no such thing. You can be sure I will not vote for a raise, nor will I support any raise until we fix the mess you sent your representatives to Albany to fix. New York is still in the thick of some pretty tough times: People are out of work, and in a lot of pain. The only raise our elected officials should be concerned about is to raise New Yorkers’ prospects for employment and financial security. If not, we should vote for our own raise. A raise in the quality of our leaders … and the quality of life we deserve.

The closest thing I was getting to a pet was my stuffed animal, “Scruffy”. As an adult, I like dogs, not cats, and have no interest in having a pet in my home. With a blessed and full house, I need no more mouths to feed. I even resent when the token goldfish is brought home from the local carnival. I have enough to do. And with every year that passes, I consider myself less of an “animal person,” and more of a “people person.” I will pet my neighbor’s dog as she walks him around the corner and even pick him up on occasion, but I do not want him staying with us while they go away on vacation. I respect that people love their pets and consider them part of the family, but I do not completely understand the craze of pet outfits and accessories which have erupted like a untapped market akin to striking gold. I am not knocking it nor am I passing judgment -- but I just don’t “get” it. I would not buy some of those luxury items for my own children, let alone a puppy. And while I would never think of putting my child in a car without the appropriate car seat or booster, I did not realize until recently that people had car seats for their dogs. Sitting recently at the nail salon (yes -- it seems many crazy things happen when I get my nails done), I received a thorough lesson from a woman near me about the lengths people will go to for their pets. The woman, who must have been in her 40s, was there with her mother who she says is constantly on her cell phone. She refers to her as a serial caller and even had to get a new phone plan for her mother because she went over on her minutes every month. “She’s like a Kardashian,” says the daughter, admitting that her mother spends even more time on the phone than her own children. While drying our nails, the woman is informed by her mother that the woman’s daughter is going to be meeting them, and is bringing the dog she is watching for someone. It seems that the dog needs to be taken out for a daily activity beyond just going for a walk and meeting them at the nail salon was the event for the day. “And the dog has a car seat,” she said. “Really?” I asked, incredulously. Before giving birth to my eldest, I knew the baby would not be released from the hospital if there was no infant car seat present. I be-

The Neil Armstrong Era – Boldly East End Boys and West End Girls Going Where No One Went Before. A

genuine piece of America passed away last Saturday. The man who really, truly boldly went where no man had gone before – Neil Armstrong, the first human being ever to leave the confines of Earth and set foot on any extraterrestrial body (that being the moon) was gathered up for one last voyage to the stars and beyond. Interestingly and coincidentally, I was at a dinner with a large group on Friday evening where some of the younger people in attendance brought up the subject of whether man had ever in fact landed on the moon. The various Hollywood sound stage conspiracy theories ricocheted across the room when I felt compelled to inform those born after the 1970s that like 600 million people in July 1969, I was a witness to history. I was an 11 year-old camper at a place called Camp Equinunk in rural Wayne County, Pennsylvania and they had a hotel atop a hill where parents would stay when visiting. This hotel had a big dining room and a large (well, for that time) 25-inch tube-fired TV which was wheeled in and about 100 of us got to watch the moon landing in real time in living black and white. There are nutty revisionists and deniers who feel the whole thing (and subsequent moon landings) were completely contrived, but I know what I saw. As a kid, to me it seemed that America in 1969 was a magical place of infinite possibilities. Aside from the moon landing, what could be more improbable than the expansion New York Mets winning the World Series or the expansion AFL New York Jets winning the Super Bowl? It was a time of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock on NBC, Larry Hagman as Major Anthony Nelson as the bemused astronaut on I Dream of Jeannie, Dr. Smith mucking things up in Lost in Space and Charlton Heston battling for the dignity of humanity in the first Planet of the Apes movie, which I saw for the first time that summer while lying on a blanket in the social hall of the aforementioned sleep away camp. To paraphrase Tom Wolfe, America to us kids at that time seemed like a “country in full.” Yes, the Vietnam War was raging but this concerned people seven to 10 years older than me and the other kids playing ball out in the street in front of our houses. We were busy living never-ending “Pleasant Valley Sundays,” riding our Schwinn Stingrays to the candy store. Our parents drove Pontiacs and Oldsmobiles in snot green or dark orange with black vinyl tops. A slice of pizza was a quarter and you could get an ice cream pop for ten to

15 cents. We collected 45 RPM “singles,” the way people download one song at a time now to their MP3 players and phones. There were but a few television stations, no way to record shows and we tended to live more of our lives in real time than it seems we do today. In the 60s we had JFK urging us to land a man on the moon “in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.” It was a time of LBJ prodding America towards civil rights and equality for all its citizens. It was a time of almost unparalleled economic prosperity and opportunity where we as a country dreamed big dreams and actually fulfilled a good many of them. Neil Armstrong was the physical embodiment of the metaphors for Americans in the 60s. He was handsome, heroic, modest and self-effacing. He was a man of few words and great deeds and those few words, “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” in a sense were the preamble for the age of high technology that the space race ushered in, to a point where we now hold in our hands everyday the kind of gadgets that we used to see imagined on TV and in the movies. Armstrong was the “all-American boy,” the paradigm for what so many of us then young boys aspired to be regardless of our backgrounds, ethnicity or science skills. Armstrong represented an America of really big dreams and of infinite possibility. Today, what passes for discourse in this country? Celebrity divorces? Politicians vilifying and dehumanizing one another over the relative merits of the federal budget? For that kid sitting cross-legged on the floor that July evening in 1969 it seemed as though there was nothing America couldn’t do. Simon and Garfunkel asked “where have you gone Joe DiMaggio?” For us in our time, it might very well be “where have you gone Neil Armstrong?” We hope he’s looking down on us from that big lunar module in the sky and puts in a good word for America with celestial “mission control,” because if our country deserves blessings going forward it’s in part due to the kind of people we’ve produced like Neil Armstrong.


Clergy Exemption Costing Millions To the Editor, I just received a printout from the Nassau County Department of Assessment listing the 608 private homes granted a NYS Real Property Law 460 ( Minister/Clergy) exemption. As I have previously written there are 45 alone in my school district, Hewlett-Woodmere. This exemption of $1,500 gets inflated to an average of over $12,000 in Hewlett-Woodmere due to the 0.25 percent equalization rate used in calculating the assessed value.  These vastly inflated, exempted taxes, unintended by the state,  gets passed along to all other taxpayers. How many unintended millions are passed along to other tax payers throughout the county? And...why is no one writing about this? How big of a mistake does this have to be before somebody writes something?

Web Comments on Neil Armstrong Article Above The “Zeitgeist” column above by Standard Editor Howard Barbanel appeared originally this past Sunday (August 26th) on The Huffington Post. Because it had been on the web for nearly a week before being printed in this issue of The Standard we are able to share reader reaction from around the country to the piece while you get to read it in print on this page. HuffPost reader Anne Siperek said: “Wonderful post! I was twelve and on my parents 38

foot cabin cruiser, docked in some marina on the Chesapeake Bay. I believe on the east coast it was late at night. And hot and humid! But oh so magical. Truly and honor to have him as a fellow American.” Many people who comment online use pseudonyms such as “the mighty aberird” who remarked that, “There were many downer aspects to 1969, but one does recall it as an era when many public figures behaved like Armstrong, a time when reticence, modesty and dignity were highly prized attributes. There were colorful demagogues and hatemongers back then, but they had less power & fewer platforms from which to spew their bile. I enjoyed the references to cars, etc. My friend’s parents had a TV with a remote control that was the size of a brick of cheesevery impressive then!” Web poster “Peabodies” posed the following question: “Am I the only one who remembers that this momentous event happened in the early a.m. hours on the East Coast, at night? Someone on HuffPo, claims it happened in late afternoon. Someone can’t fool with my memory.” Mark Dorseysr remarked that, “There are million issues facing us today, and I know there were a million back in 69, and like the author I was just a kid (13) then but one thing is for sure.. That era of “can do” has turned into “can’t do”. I will readily agree that spending is out of control and we waste a boatload of money, BUT, the moon landing, and the exploration that went before to get us there were all a product of the National Effort to do so.. Mo-

tives aside.. this was not private enterprise, this was our nation, being great.. Your tax $$ at work. To think we can so lower taxes that we are out of the hole is such a simplistic view it just amazes me that our entire presidential election is going to be based on this. If you want to be great again, it is going to cost something.” Blogger “BassguyGG” stated that “July 20, 1969 was perhaps America’s finest hour in my lifetime. Certainly, I have never been as proud to be an American as I was that night! People forget that these astronauts risk their lives every time they launh. Tragedies like Apollo 1, Apollo 13, Space Shuttle Challenger will always remind us that as hard as we may try to minimize it, there will always be a risk in “Boldly Going Where No Man has Gone Before.” Neil Amstrong was a true American hero who always seemed to handle the “First Man on The Moon” mantle with grace. I’m sure it had be a heavy burden at times. Thank you Neil, and God Bless.” “Gutenmorgen” posited that “Even though I profited from the repeated landings on the Moon by studying lunar soils I have always been slightly puzzled why it was necessary to repeat these visits to the Moon. What President Kennedy wanted the nation to do had been done. What else was there to prove? Sure, the study of the geology of the Moon was a fine challenge but it could have waited for more sophisticated and possibly unmanned trips. It was rumored that the Apollo 12 landing site was chosen to prove to the Soviets that we could land pinpoint

Editor’s Note – This column is being reprinted again this week because in last week’s paper the continuation of the story from this page to the “b” section was incorrect – due to a streaming error the bottom third of this story was replaced with a column written a month prior about the New York Mets. We regret and apologize for the error and any inconvenience. The entire correct article is reprinted below:


ack in the mid-80s a British group called the Pet Shop Boys had a number one hit single with “West End Girls,” which was a synth-pop song talking about class and socio-economic differences in Britain. Some of the lyrics are: “You’ve got a heart of glass or a heart of stone Just you wait ‘til I get you home We’ve got no future, we’ve got no past Here today, built to last In every city, in every nation From Lake Geneva to the Finland station In a West End town, a dead end world The East End boys and West End girls A West End town, a dead end world East End Boys, West End girls West End girls..” Being Brits, the Pet Shop Boys were talking about the perennial differences between the posh West End of London and the hardscrabble lowrent Cockney East End and a tale of lovers from different sides of the tracks which is as old as Shakespeare and as 20th Century as West Side Story. In the microscopic demimonde of middle aged Orthodox Jewish dating there is an emerging phenomenon of cross-hashkafa dating. Hashkafa is a Hebrew word which in Orthodox parlance refers to one’s “perspective” or “outlook,” referring principally to socio-cultural (which sometimes overlaps with socio-economic) preferences or differences. As I’ve written before, there are probably a half dozen major hashkafot, or socio-cultural groups within American Orthodoxy that have nothing whatsoever to do with theology but everything to do with what you wear, how you look and the image you project to the world. To a lesser degree it can manifest itself in degrees of observance, but more so on the style of one’s observance. The spectrum ranges from Modern Orthodox Liberal (my spot on the hashkafa scale) making stops at “Centrist,” ‘CenterRight,” “Yeshivish,” “Modern Chabad” and Haredi. To non-Orthodox Jews (and to non-Jews not interested in social anthropology) this all can seem a bit mind-numbing. To Orthodox Jews who’ve found themselves single (or who never married) again in one’s 40s or 50s, one’s hashkafa is fraught with meaning – these are the “gang colors” that signal to would-be mates what your whole life-

style is probably like. My estimation is that there are perhaps 1,000 Orthodox singles in all of the U.S. between 40 and 55. This is because most are married, whether happily or otherwise. At events and online, there is never more than one degree of separation between people in this demographic as everyone knows everyone, knows of everyone or knows someone who knows the other. Because of the paucity of potential mates there is a fascinating cross-pollination of people of differing hashkafot taking place. Slumming (so-to-speak) are the “frum Barbies,” women who hail from Lubavitch (Chabad) or “Yeshivish” (black hat) backgrounds who because there are even fewer eligible single males in their world have been dipping into the Modern Orthodox dating pool. Although the guys might not fit with their families’ sartorial choices and Yiddishist mannerisms, these ladies, like everyone else would like a little company. The “frum Barbies” generally are very slim and pretty (hence they are confident), the divorced wear extravagant sheitels (wigs) of real Eastern European hair that can cost upwards of $5,000 to $8,000, which when combined with high-end makeup gives them a movie star presence, especially when they’re clad in skin-tight designer pencil skirts and equally skintight tops that leave nothing to the imagination. Although showing no arm skin and nothing above the knee, it’s actually quite a sensual presentation that in my view has not a thing whatsoever to do with “modesty.” Like all pretty women they want attention and adoration and they dress the part. Many of these women are already grandmothers at 45 but they don’t look like it. A lot of Modern Orthodox men will date up or down, meaning they’re happy to date the “frum Barbies,” but don’t want to be pushed into becoming “Yeshivish,” but they’re also dating outside of Orthodox parameters. Many ModOrtho men will go the JDate route and date non-Orthodox, also because of the dearth of dating options. A percentage of ModOrtho women do the same thing and sometimes find themselves “falling off the derech (road)” (becoming less observant) as a consequence. As I’ve written before, there is an enormous aversion to commitment as the divorced (often for reasons of abuse of some kind) are once bitten, twice shy and many never- marrieds are petrified because of having never taken the plunge and are very set in their ways. For all the dating and partying that goes on, there are very few weddings in this demographic, unlike the profusion of nuptials among twenty-something Orthos – it’s like the polar opposite phenomenon. I’ve also not yet seen or heard of any “East End boys” getting hitched to any “West End girls” despite all the teasing between the two groups.

Getting Your Home Ready for Colder Weather By Ryan Lavis


s the heat and humidity of the summer months fades away into the fall season, homeowners throughout The Five Towns might ďŹ nd now a good time to complete home renovation projects in preparation of the upcoming winter. Whether you’re looking to ďŹ x up a roof, insulate some plumbing, or seal some windows, many local businesses offer tips and great deals to help out homeowners.

Roof Maintenance Preparing a roof for winter weather is important to ensure it stays protected from the harsh cold and snow. A good ďŹ rst step for any homeowner is to clean out those gutters that get clogged with leaves in the fall. For those who enjoy do-it-yourself projects, using a leaf blower or hose is a simple way to clean out gutters. There is also the option of hiring a company to clean those leaf-ďŹ lled gutters. Abraham RooĎ?ing in Lynbrook offers gutter cleaning year round. Abraham RooĎ?ing offers its custom-

ers a maintenance program in which Abraham roofers periodically clean out homeowners’ gutters throughout the year. According to the pros at Abraham the fall is an important time to inspect the roof to ďŹ x any damages from storms and prepare it for the winter. It is vital to clean out leaves so it does not freeze in the gutters during the winter months. Abraham Roofing is located at 23 Blake Avenue in Lynbrook. For more information, call (800) 347-0913.

Replacing Windows and Doors Homeowners



pane windows might want to spend the fall upgrading to more energy-efďŹ cient double pane windows. These types of windows are supposed to reduce energy costs during those rough winter months. New Roof Long Island in Woodmere can install these windows, and according to the company’s website, homeowners can claim a tax credit of up to $1,500 for these energy efďŹ cient windows. It is also important for homeowners to make sure there are no gaps or cracks between the doors and the frames. Any gaps could cause heat to escape, which will

drive up those already expensive heating bills. For more information on New Roof Long Island, call 516-986-4156.

Pipes and Furnace Homeowners should always make sure their heat is working before the winter starts. Several local plumbing stores in The Five Towns suggest turning the heat on in the fall for a brief length of time – just to make sure it’s working before the cold hits. Another suggestion is to insulate those exposed pipes with foam wrap. This is a good

idea for two reasons: First, exposed plumbing lines in cold areas use up more power. Secondly, unprotected pipes can freeze and burst if temperatures get extremely cold in the winter. Any home improvement store usually carries foam wrap that can prevent these sorts of things. But just in case some assistance is needed, Pipe Doctor Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc, in Woodmere can help get everything in working order, and well as provide routine maintenance. For more information, call (516) 295-2448

Help Your Child Realize Thir Potential at A+ Achievement Learning Center


+ is a full service learning center and educational services company located at 589 Willow Avenue, Cedarhurst in Maple Plaza. A+ moved into its new facilities in September of 2011. The facilities include two spacious classrooms and two private ofďŹ ces to accommodate group and individual sessions. A+ offers tutoring in all subjects from English and history to math and science. A+ does not just offer the band aid approach of tutoring at test time. Many students at A+ attend sessions in Algebra, Geometry or Trigonom-

etry throughout the school year to focus on building skills for the future. A+ also offers the services of an experienced reading teacher, SAT/ACT prep classes, assistance with science projects and research papers, tutoring for college students and much more. All of these services can be delivered on-site, or via Skype. At home tutoring is available as well for many services. The A+ approach emphasizes that each student is different. Unlike some of the franchise learning centers that have their unique method of teaching, an

individualized plan is formed for each student based on his or her needs. A+ has two new offerings this year; a study skills course and an after school homework program. The study skills course is a unique blend of motivational exercises based on Sean Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens and practical academic skills. Students learn how to set achievable goals, how to use a calendar to stay organized, develop listening, note-taking and test-taking skills, and learn how to take notes from text books. There are six lecture sessions

and six supervised homework sessions. The special introductory price is $300. The after school homework program was offered on a trial basis during March April, and May of last year and was a great success. The program is for parents who want their children to receive additional help with their homework assignments and with studying for tests. This an ideal program for parents who do not have the time or knowledge to help their children with homework or study-

Late Night Humor The Best of This Week’s Post 11pm Wit Jimmy Fallon

David Letterman

“President Obama is seeking to make his case with firsttime voters. Well, you can understand why. Second-time voters have graduated and can’t find a job.”

–Jay Leno “President Obama is brewing his own beer in the White House. Actually, the White House beer is a lot like the Obama administration – great buzz, weak finish.”

–Jay Leno “According to a poll released last week, Mitt Romney has zero percent of the black vote. In fact, if it weren’t for John Boehner, Romney wouldn’t have any support from people of color at all.”

–Jay Leno “This year the theme of the Republican convention is ‘50 Shades of White.’”

–David Letterman “This is my favorite statistic so far. According to a new poll, Mitt Romney is at zero percent among African American voters. And I don’t think the GOP slogan at convention is helping any: ‘See what white can do for you.’”

–Jay Leno “According to a new poll, Mitt Romney is at zero percent among African Americans. Here’s the sad part: That’s up 5 percent from last week.”

–Jay Leno “A group of coal miners in Ohio said that their bosses forced them to attend a Mitt Romney campaign event. You know you’re boring when people would rather dig coal than listen to you speak.”

– Conan O’Brien “Herman Cain was in Tampa. When a reporter asked him if Isaac reminded him of Katrina, he said, ‘I never even met the woman.’”

–Jay Leno “Last week President Obama met with the White House press corps for only the second time this year. He said he would have met with them more, but he’s been so busy campaigning, he didn’t have time to write their ques-

–Jay Leno “The Obama campaign announced that theirs will be the first political campaign to accept donations via text message. The president is hoping it’s a way to engage grass-roots supporters to give money. A friend of mine tried to donate money and ended up voting for Sanjaya.”

–Jimmy Kimmel “President Obama’s supporters can now text the word ‘GIVE’ to donate up to $50 dollars to his campaign, although it’s frustrating when autocorrect keeps changing it to ‘Fix the economy.’”

–Jimmy Fallon “New research found that people who wake up early are more productive than people who sleep in. Or as Congress put it, ‘Whoa — is it noon already?’”

–Jimmy Fallon “According to The New York Times, Iraq now loves American fast food. They hate us but they love our fast food. This is how we work. We force democracy on them and then we sneak in morbid obesity.”

–David Letterman

There’s Plenty to Choose From at VariEaties They say variety is the spice of life, and that is true at VariEaties in Cedarhurst.

The freshly painted green walls are lined with striped booths and colorful chairs for hungry patrons to sit and have a bite to eat.

If you stop in for lunch, there is a special that runs from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00


“An all-female rock band from Russia, in a Moscow cathedral, played a protest song about Vladimir Putin’s ties to the church. Putin’s henchmen tracked them down and threw them in prison. They were charged with hooliganism. Is that a crime? That’s like being charged with tomfoolery. Or shenanigans.”

p.m. – two regular slices of pizza and a can of soda is $4.50. Pizza by the slice, $2.25-$3.75, can be layered with fresh vegetables like peppers, onions, olives, and spinach. Other options include their white slices, Sicilian, grandma, pesto, fra diavlo, and whole wheat slices. These slices can also transform into an entire pizza pie that is $14.99- $22.99. VariEaties also makes rolls stuffed with cheese and vegetables all for $3.99 each. For only $8.99, you can take home a pasta dish, or enjoy it in-house, such as penne ala vodka, cheese lasagna, or eggplant parmesan. In the mood for an appetizer before you dig into that fettucine alfredo? Try their homemade garlic knots, four piec-


es for $1.50. Or end with a homemade dessert - zeppoles, six for $1.50. VariEaties also has a sushi bar that features many hand rolls. All sushi rolls are $4.00- $6.50 each and include rolls such as the Futo Maki, with mock crabmeat, oskinko, cucumber, avocado and tomato.

NBC. 8:30 p.m. The defending champion New York Giants will kick off the 2012-2013 season by hosting their hated rivals, the Dallas Cowboys. Last season, the Cowboys had a chance to knock the Giants out of playoff contention, but a crucial miscue between quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Miles Austin allowed the CONTINUED ON P. B8

–Craig Ferguson “Some Russians are claiming that Putin’s election was rigged and that he has no legitimate claim to power. You know what these Russians are called? Missing.”

–Craig Ferguson “NASA has actually landed a car on Mars. It’s called the Curiosity. That vehicle, now on Mars, cost two and a half million dollars. But when you drive that thing off the lot, instantly it’s worth less than half that.”

–David Letterman

Animal People CONTINUED FROM P. A10 gan to wonder if people rescuing animals from shelters were held to the same standards. Did anyone really say, “I’m sorry, ma’am - but without a 5-point car seat, we cannot give you the poodle?” “Oh, that’s nothing,” continued the woman. “My mother has a stroller for her cats.” At that point, I began to stare, unable to blink and certainly unable to speak. It seemed her mother took all of her cats for walks through their neighborhood in a stroller and while the daughter was embarrassed initially, now the community is used to it. The woman’s mother began to defend herself. Her cats are so good, she said,

that “they are really like dogs.” I laughed. “That’s the ultimate compliment cats can get,” I joked. “To be told that they are really like dogs.” She explained that she even sleeps with one of her cats right on her, or even sometimes on her head. I was stunned, but again: I am not an animal person. This might be completely normal, though I could not imagine that it was. “If you treat them this well,” I said, “they’ll never move out and will live with you even as adults,” but I was ignored. I listened intently as the daughter then explained that her mother will not go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, should it be necessary, so as not to wake the sleeping cat. Again, I began to stare in disbe-

lief, but the mother defended herself. People say cats rule you and are very bossy, she explained, but said that was not the situation in her case. Her cats were great, she continued, and all get along really well, but she was still in charge. It was at that moment that her daughter had heard just about enough. “Oh, yeah, Mom” she said. “You’re ready to catheterize yourself in the middle of the night before waking the cat -- you are really driving THAT ship!” I would have responded, but I was too busy crying from laughter. Once someone uses the word “catheterize” in a nail salon, even I am left with nothing to say.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR CONTINUED FROM P. A11 if they ever placed a nuclear device on the Moon and disarm it but as I said, it was only a rumor at the time.” HuffPost reader “conal6” was in agreement with Mr. Barbanel, saying, “I agree I was 4 in 1969 I remember in 1970 watching The Eagle has landed. Its kind of strange but I just finished reading Alan Shepard Jr’s Biography “Light This Candle” The morning it was announced Neil Armstrong Died ( I stayed up all night reading it) . I was telling my wife about the book and amazed how many of the early astronauts I knew off the top of my head. The shuttle astronauts I couldn’t tell you more than 3 or 4. Those were heady days the great thing it was America it wasn’t democrat or republican. It really is hard to explain the nationalism that the space program and NASA sparked. When you hear and read about Gus Grissom and those Apollo astronauts burning up on the launch pad in a very horrific way to go strapped in a seat. I don’t even entertain, The we didn’t go to the moon nonsense. God Bless

Neil Armstrong . RI.P.” “Plymouthrock1635” said, “I enjoyed the article very much. Loved the references to the Jets, Star Trek and Schwinn Stingrays. “Our parents drove Pontiacs and Oldsmobiles in snot green or burnt orange with black vinyl tops.” If I remember correctly this was called “Corinthian Leather.” To which Mr. Barbanel replied, “Corinthian Leather” actually was used in the interiors of late 70s and 80sera Chrysler cars like the now defunct New Yorker. Richardo Montalban was the TV pitchman for Chrysler and he spoke of “rich Corinthian Leather” as a great luxury. The vinyl tops on the cars we usually black, but sometimes white.” Lastly, HuffPost reader “Karpy” asserted that “I read that Obama said some words for Neil on his passing and found it typically hypocritical. Obama and his lackey Bolden have overseen the destruction of America’s hard earned leadership as a manned space fairing nation. In the process, he flushed 90 Billion taxpayer dollars down the drain, and tossed 30,000 world class American

rocket scientists and 150,000 aerospace technicians into the street. He killed the Constellation program just as it was starting to return the taxpayers investment for no other reason then to say “we certainly ARE NOT going back to the Moon.” I believe he did this in order to take America down a notch. When he appointed Bolden as NASA ‘s Director, he assigned him the task of building Muslim “self esteem” as a first priority and sent him to Egypt to get started on it. He dislikes the concept of American “exceptionalism”, and seems determined to make the United States “just another country at the world table.” He has destroyed our status as a space fairing nation to that end, and Neil Armstrong knew it. Armstrong, (the first man on the moon, Gene Cernan, (the last man) and 12 other Apollo Astronauts lobbied Congress and Obama hard to bring NASA back on track to no avail. Good Bye Neil, I watched you leave Earth and thank your for being such a truly brave and wonderful man and for trying to save NASA in your final years with us. God’s Speed.

New in Movies Friday August 31st Lawless: (R). Shia LaBeouf

and Tom Hardy star in Lawless, a film based on The Wettest County in the World, a novel by Matt Bondurant. Lawless is about the three Bondurant brothers who are bootleggers in Virginia during the Prohibition era who make and sell their own brand of moonshine. When a new sherriff, played by Guy Pearce, arrives and begins to crack down on the sale of alcohol throughout the county, it throws a wrench into the brothers’ operation and changes the dynamic of the family. LaBeouf’s char-

eral weeks or months. Howard Daar, the owner of A+, will meet with each teacher and the parents to develop a customized plan to bring the student back up to speed in all subjects. He will meet regularly with the parents and students to track progress.

acter even creates his own moonshine and begins selling it to a notorious gangster played by Gary Oldman. Women complicate matters further, leading to an inevitable showdown between the Bondurants and law enforcement for control of the county. The Possession: (PG13). The Possession is a film based on an article by Leslie Gornstein, a writer for The Los Angeles Times, about a young girl who spots an interesting box at a yard sale and buys it, setting off a series of horrific events. The box is discovered to be the Dibbuk Box, containing an evil spirit that frightens and torments owners of the box until they die or solve the mystery of the box’s strange contents.
