Mental Illness Awareness Day An unparalleled Queens high school legacy, an Olympic Gold medal, three NCAA Championships, and a highly successful professional basketball career could not mask the private demons, bouts of depression, and Chamique Holdsclaw’s eventual suicide attempt. Fortunately, it was that ultimate, terrible low point in her life that empowered her to help others find the strength and courage to face the ugly stigma of mental illness. Ms. Holdsclaw will discuss her experiences with serious depression, which she shared in her recent book, Breaking Through: Beating The Odds Shot After Shot, when she serves as Keynote Speaker at the 20th Annual Mental Illness Awareness Day on

ENTER TO WIN A $25 MOVIE GIFT CARD

Mental Illness Awareness Day

“Visits” ing door knocks, which led to spur-of-the-moment nature hikes and abductions to breakfast venues. The morning I moved away, June sent me off with a plate of delicate Finnish pancakes. I promised ongoing visits, and returned to their home for dinners, talks and bear hugs in their yellow-tiled foyer, year after year after year, for ten sweet years. Now, June and Ralph, the birds (and there’ve been generations of them), are regulars in my yard. Morning and evening, these crimson puppeteers use radar, charm and invisible marionette strings to pull me from the walnuts on my countertop to the back porch railing. They “chip chip chip” outside my bedroom window at dawn, flutter near the kitchen window while I

make coffee, and, when my car zips into the driveway, fly over the rooftop to wait out back for their nuts. The original Ralph snatched his walnut from the railing while June hid in a nearby branch, awaiting his return from market. Sometimes he’d snack on the steps before flying back to feed June, beak to beak. But once, and only once, in January 2006, the original June appeared calmly, right next to Ralph, on the steps. That was the afternoon I returned from the veterinarian after having to put my fifteen year-old cat to sleep. When I leaned against the back door window to gaze into the yard, there they were, en pair, like a protective hug. Back in 1974, at the conclusion of sixth grade, the class parents collected money

for a present for Ralph and June. Knowing full well that these super-teachers would use a gift certificate to enrich their classrooms instead of themselves, the moms decided to give them something concrete, to keep. They chose a statue of a nature scene, its wooden base inscribed: “To the Laakkonens, for total dedication, from your outdoor learning classes, 1973 - 1974.” Ralph and June did keep that statue, front and center, in the bay window of their house. After they died, I passed by one day when the house was being shown to buyers. The real estate agent allowed me to step into the yellow-tiled foyer and walk through the house one last time. It was empty, except for a few items awaiting cleanup by their grown children. Still there: the statue. Realizing it had no specif-

ic meaning to their kids, I called, asked, and was graciously given, after all those years, a gift I’d seen presented to beloved teachers when I was only just eleven. It’s in my home, now, in a place of honor. A statue of a nature scene: a mother cardinal, feeding her babies, taking care of the young. The same thing that’s happening in my yard, year after year after year. By now, the original Ralph and June cardinals have passed on. Their children, today’s Ralphs and Junes, have become progressively more comfortable with the back door/railing arrangement. Even the females. A few days ago, a new June fluttered midair, near the center panel of the nine-paned door, just twelve inches from me. While I opened up to place a walnut on one rail,

she watched from the other, and grabbed the nut before I’d even closed the door. I, like you, have suffered many losses. But I know (I do) that we really don’t leave each other. I believe that here, in life, we’re all out walking, on a great nature hike. The people who’ve died have “gone on ahead,” just a little further along up the trail. Of course, we’ll all get the chance, when the time is right, to “catch up.” While we’re here, though, our job (our joy) is to be who we really are, and to do what we really came to do. Like Ralph and June. And, on any good nature trail, while the people must travel it step after step, the birds are free to fly back and forth. And back again, for visits in time.

After my friends Ralph and June died within months of each other in 2003, a pair of cardinals appeared in my yard. Since they’d adored cardinals, and each Christmas sent cards depicting snowscapes lit by two tiny red birds, I named the rubyfeathered couple after them. Thereafter, the birds claimed a table at the finest outdoor restaurant in suburbia, and to this day, order the daily special: organic walnuts from Trader Joe’s. The human, June, first appeared in my life in 1973, as my sixth grade teacher, and two decades later, in 1994, as my cherished friend, when the Universe became a real estate broker, and placed me in an apartment right next door to her house. For eight months, I luxuriated in June and her husband Ralph’s Sunday-morn-

Ocean To Sound Relay

Bethpage Federal Credit Union, a dedicated supporter of health and wellness initiatives on Long Island, announces its sponsorship of the Greater Long Island Running Club’s 27th Annual Ocean To Sound Relay. The Bethpage Ocean to Sound Relay, which takes place on Sunday, September 23rd, will take runners across both Nassau and Suffolk Counties with 150 teams of eight runners each traversing a 50-mile scenic course stretching from the South Shore to

the North Shore of Long Island. This will be the third consecutive year Bethpage has sponsored the event. Over 1,000 runners are expected to participate in the relay, which will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services, money raised from the relay will go directly to support the organization’s Long Island Chapter. Long Island runner Alan End, who founded the relay

back in 1985, is the relay director. According to Greater Long Island Running Club President Mike Polansky, “The Bethpage Ocean to Sound Relay is an exciting race that Long Islanders look forward to each year…given the outstanding course, team camaraderie, spirited competition and deserving cause.” The Bethpage Ocean to Sound Relay starts at Jones Beach State Park and finishes on the grounds of the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park in Oyster Bay. 150 eightperson teams will navigate their way through 15 different Long Island townships starting in Wantagh, traveling through Seaford, Massapequa Park, Massapequa, Farmingdale, Old Bethpage, Plainview,

Woodbury, West Hills, crossing into Huntington and hitting the Long Island Sound in Lloyd Harbor, returning to Nassau County via Cold Spring Harbor and Syosset, reaching Oyster Bay Cove, and finally hitting Oyster Bay. “The Ocean to Sound Relay endures because it is a unique race drawing runners from the entire tri-state area,” said Linda Armyn, Senior Vice President, Corporate Strategy, Bethpage Federal Credit Union. “The organizational talents of the Greater Long Island Running Club and the Ocean to Sound Relay Director Alan End continue to amaze us here at Bethpage and our teams are eager to participate again this year.” There are 13 different categories for runners including men’s,

women’s, mixed open, men’s masters, women’s masters, mixed masters, men’s seniors masters, women’s seniors masters, corporate, law enforcement/firefighter, physically challenged, one person team and Bethpage. A gala post race party affectionately called the “Best PostRace Party in the Northeast” will take place immediately following the relay at the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park on the shoreline of beautiful Oyster Bay Harbor near the finish line, where awards will be presented in each of the individual categories to each member of the top three teams in each category. “The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is dedicated to finding cures for blood cancers and to expanding health services and support to

Apparently, according to some, I write about “nothing” week after week. This sentiment, in the form of a threepage letter from a reader, arrived on my desk this morning and, rather than let it go and write what was intended to be a positive article, I have decided to address it. First off, writers – or at least the good ones – write for their audiences. First rule of Journalism. If you work for a hard-hitting investigative daily newspaper, well then, the content you produce should have a similar feel. If you write for a fluff-filled monthly magazine, likewise, you would be advised to adjust your tone accordingly. Here, where our audience is

made up of Long Island community members interested in reading about the local happenings at their schools and libraries, upcoming meetings and events, and the recent achievements of their friends and neighbors… well that’s a very specific, unique demographic now, isn’t it? It would be virtually impossible to cater to each and every person out there and their individual expectations; and yes, sometimes my columns may be about “nothing” in particular – just a human interest, weekly feature, usually drawn from personal experiences, that hopefully strikes a chord with the general population. To criticize that concept as a whole is to be severely misinformed about what this newspaper is, what type of content we pro-

mote and what the majority of our audience appreciates. That said, I hope that this particular reader – who, for all her bitter hatred of this column, apparently still feels the need to read it each and every week – now understands the medium, and the intended message, at least a little better. Sometimes, “nothing” is just as good as something… I believe there was a fairly successful TV show which was modeled on precisely this concept at one point. Just because something doesn’t interest you does not make it uninteresting. And if you don’t even take the time to explore those things which are outside of your accepted norm, well then, I suppose you’ll never know what you might be missing out on.

Poster Presentation

For More Information Call: 631-226-2636 - www.theneighbornewspapers.com

Nassau University Medical Center (NUMC) internal medicine department resident, Rabab Hajar, MD, in conjunction with American University of the Caribbean student alumnus, Dimitriy Golovyan, MD, won the first place poster presentation award at the New York chapter of the American College of Physicians’ Annual Scientific Meeting, held in Albany, NY, on August 24th. Their first place winning poster was entitled Atrial Septal defect Causing Underestimation Of Mitral Regurgitation In A Severely Symptomatic Patient. Sanjay Doddamani, MD, FACC, FASE, chair of cardiology at NUMC, expressed his pride for the

residents as well as that of the program directors and administration: “Please join me in congratulating Drs. Hajar and Golovyan for an outstanding effort in research and for presenting their poster in the student category at the ACP annual meeting. They will have another opportunity to present at the national ACP meeting in San Francisco, California in April 2013.” Joining in congratulating the residents upon winning the prestigious first place award, Steven J. Walerstein, MD, FACP, executive vice president for medical affairs and medical director at the NuHealth System, added: “This is the ultimate honor for residents and students in internal medicine. The awardees,

as well as their mentors are to be congratulated for their achievement and to be thanked for the recognition brought to NUMC.” During their case presentation, Drs. Hajar and Golovyan determined that transesophageal echocardiography can play a critical role in identification of subtle intracardiac lesions and the assessment of patients with dyspnea on exertion that is unexplained by other modalities. A missed ASD may impact appropriate and timely management of patients with symptomatic mitral regurgitation. Delayed treatment may result in right outflow track remodeling and lead to residual pulmonary hypertension.

BIRDIES FOR THE BRAVE - The Barclays hit the Black Course at Bethpage State Park in Farmingdale last week with plenty of hospitality for US Armed Forces veterans. Thanks to PGA Tour Charities, Inc.’s Birdies for the Brave, a military outreach initiative, veterans enjoyed free four-day passes to The Barclays and special events in their honor on Wednesday which included caddying for the pros. During the weekend, Applebee’s manned the Patriots’ Outpost serving up free food to more than 500 veterans and their families.

Generous Donation With over 1,500 travel teams in Suffolk, Nassau and Queens, the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) is the largest league in the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA). The LIJSL recently gave back to the local community by hosting fundraisers at the Peter Collins Soccer Park in Plainview for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Long Island Cares. On Sunday, August 19th, a dozen teams of Estée Lauder employees and executives, and local Under-14 and Under-15 girls teams from the Long Island Junior Soccer League, took part in a series of friendlies to support the fight against breast cancer. “The focus today is on fun and on creating breast cancer awareness,” said Carlos Ospina, an Estée employee and organizer of the event. “The assistance we get from the LIJSL, the park staff who do a great job for us, and the referees who volunteer their time, is just extraordinary.” The Lynbrook/East Rockaway Stingrays, who are coached by Carlos, the East Meadow Stingrays and other LIJSL teams from

Hicksville, Sound Beach, Brentwood and Carle Place, among others, were in attendance. There was a game that pitted VP’s and executives from Estée Lauder against a team of assemblers. Another squad was made up of employees of the company’s plant in Pennsylvania, who rented a bus and left at 5 a.m. to be on Long Island for the event. “At the end of the day, we had a lot of fun and accomplished our goal of raising money and awareness for breast cancer research,” Carlos added. “As employees of Estée Lauder Companies, we are very committed to Mrs. Evelyn Lauder’s vision to find a cure for breast cancer. It was great to see the parents, coaches and players embrace that as well. We have formed a great relationship with the LIJSL, the Soccer Park staff and the referees, and we hope to do even more together in the future.” This is the eighth year that the friendly games have taken place at the Peter Collins Soccer Park, which is donated by the LIJSL for the event. It is the first year that youth teams have taken part, and there are future

plans being discussed for a women’s division and a clinic for younger players. The $1,700 raised on August 19th adds to the more than $8.5 million that the Estée Lauder Company has raised for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and fundraising efforts will continue right through October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Statistics have shown that one out of nine Long Island women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. LIJSL players, coaches and families also contributed to the Peter Collins Soccer Park Food Drive during the Spring Season and the league was able to donate 811 pounds of food to Long Island Cares. “On behalf of all of the children and families served by Long Island Cares, Elana Sissons, Food Drive Coordinator, and I are truly grateful to the LIJSL for your support,” said Paule Pachter, Executive Director of Long Island Cares. “This donation will go a long way towards ensuring that more Long Island children and families do not go hungry.”

Pumpkin Weigh-Off Champion and novice pumpkin growers are invited to Hicks Nurseries’ 10th Annual Pumpkin Weigh-Off on Sunday, October 7th at 11 a.m. The nursery would like to encourage everyone to bring their home-grown pumpkins no matter what the size and partake in the fun of the day. There will be a new Rookie of the Year category so those growing a pumpkin for the first time will have a chance to go home a winner. Cash prizes will be awarded at

the weigh-off: 1st Place: $500; 2nd Place: $300; 3rd Place: $200; and Rookie of the Year: $100. Children, age 15 and under, are encouraged to bring in their homegrown pumpkins. Each child will receive a blue ribbon and a hayride for their family. This year, the audience will have the opportunity to win free hayrides in the new Guess The Weight competition. Customers will guess the weight of a few of the giant pumpkins and those who come

closest to the actual weight (without going over) will each receive a free hayride for their families. In addition to the pumpkin contest there will be numerous fall activities underway at the nursery, including hayrides, farm animals, roasted corn, the Otto the Ghost story and Otto in person.

9/11 Memorial Ceremony Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto invites all residents, their families and friends to attend the Town’s 9/11 Memorial Ceremony to honor the memory of those lost on September 11th, 2001. The Town of Oyster Bay 9/11 Memorial Ceremony is scheduled for Friday, September 7th, beginning at 7 p.m. at Tobay Beach. “The Town’s September 11th memorial is situated on the bayside of Tobay Beach, where there is a direct line of sight to where the Twin Towers once stood,” Supervisor Venditto said. “It provides a serene and peaceful surrounding, making it a fitting backdrop for a

place of remembrance.” The Town’s memorial monument is inscribed with the names of Town of Oyster Bay residents lost on September 11th, 2001. The memorial also features a steel beam recovered from the World Trade Center. “What makes our memorial so meaningful is that it’s personal,” the Supervisor said. “The men and women whose names are on the wall were our loved ones, our friends, our neighbors, our colleagues. They rode their bikes through our streets, swam at our beaches, and enjoyed our parks. They lived here.” The event on September 7th will include a

candlelight vigil, vocal performances, bagpipe music and religious readings. In addition, the names of those lost, who are inscribed on the wall, will be read. “I hope that all residents will join us on Friday, September 7th to mark the 11th anniversary and honor the memory of our beloved friends and neighbors who perished on September 11th, 2001,” Supervisor Venditto concluded. “Being with our family, friends and neighbors helps us pay tribute to our loved ones and share in the collective memory of those who have lost.”


and equestrian center in Medford, with indoor and outdoor polo fields operating year round. “With its high speeds and energy, polo is the original extreme sport. With Polo at the Park we wanted to introduce Long Islanders to polo in a way that is accessible to everyone. Long Island has a tradition of horsemanship and a thriving equestrian community; polo is a natural fit for those looking for a new experience that is thrilling and relaxing at the same time,” said Bob Ceparano of Country Farms Polo in Medford. Each polo match features 8 riders on horseback that form two 4-player teams. The two teams of riders and ponies will show off their speed,

endurance and panache as they fly around at speeds up to 40mph. The match consists of 7 chukkers (time periods) of 7.5 minutes each. Played on a manicured field of green grass, spectators can enjoy a relaxing picnic or spend the day surrounded by the beautifully landscaped grounds. The entrance to Bethpage State Park is located approximately 1 mile east of exit 8 on the Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway off of Plainview Rd. Gates open at 2 p.m. and matches begins at 3 p.m. Admission is $5; kids under 12 are free. For information on matches and special events, please visit www.poloatthepark.com or call 631.345.9585.

about the S.T.O.P., e-waste and drug collection programs, including a list of what can be disposed of through the programs and the schedule of collection days and locations for 2012,” Councilman Pinto continued. “Any resident or organization interested in obtaining a free brochure should call or write the Town of Oyster Bay Public Information Office, Oyster Bay Town Hall East, 54 Audrey Avenue, Oyster Bay, N.Y. 11771 (516.624.6380). A copy can also be downloaded from the Town’s Web site, www.oysterbaytown.com. “The S.T.O.P. program, which provides residents with an environmentally safe means for disposal of household hazardous waste, is now in its 27th

year,” Councilman Pinto said. “This is the ninth year for the Electronic Waste Collection program. Oyster Bay was the first Town on Long Island to have a regularly scheduled e-waste program, which was kicked off in April 2004. The Town conducted its first drug collections in 2010 and expanded the program to eight collections this year.” The Councilman noted that additional S . T. O .

Rapelling For A Good Cause It’s not often – or in fact, ever – that you’ll have seen people rappel down the side of the Tower Building on the campus of Nassau Community College. But those who come to the NCC-hosted “Over The Edge” event on Friday, October 12th, will see just that, all in aid of raising money for Special Olympics. On that day, a wide variety of participants, including thrill-seekers, avid rappellers, firsttimers and people who just want to help raise money for a worthy cause will find their way 13 stories down the side of the Tower with the help of professionals from Over the Edge. Over the Edge runs all day, and anyone is welcome to stay, but each rappel will take about an hour and a half. NCC is very proud to participate in this event, according to Dr. Kenneth Saunders, Officer in Charge. “We are honored to partner with Special Olympics New York in this important fundraising

event,” he said. “Special Olympics provides vital and empowering services to the special athletes in our area.” Participants in Over The Edge need not have prior experience in order to rappel. They’ll start out about an hour before their scheduled rappel in a staging room where all their equipment will be laid out: harnesses, helmets and gloves. Then they’ll continue on to a practice round, probably about three stories high, before the big event. Each of the rappellers will have raised at least $1,000 in donations. Diane Colonna, Regional Director of Special Olympics New York, Inc., Long Island Region, noted that all of the proceeds from the event will go to Long Island’s local Special Olympics organization, which aids over 4,200 athletes from Nassau and Suffolk counties. “We are thrilled to be partnering with NCC on this event. We are hopeful that at least 100 people will

rappel down the Tower, raise much needed funds for our program, and experience the opportunity of a lifetime,” she said. Anyone interested in participating in the NCC/Special Olympics Over the Edge event on October 12th should contact Special Olympics New York, Inc., Long Island Region, at 631.254.1465 extension 11, or sony.kintera.org/LIOTE.

Texting is their preferred mode of communication. According to a recent LG Text Ed survey conducted by LG Mobile phones, while half of all teens admit to texting while driving, only 4 percent of parents are aware of this. Second, teens are inherently novices when it comes to driving. They especially need to focus on the road to compensate for any lack of driving skill or experience. Third, teens can literally be driven to distraction. If a teen is caught up in a dramatic or tense texting conversation, it could be

too enticing to focus on the phone instead of the road. The Stats The U.S. government’s official website on distracted driving, www.distraction.gov, cites multiple statistics on the dangers of this careless behavior: • Using a mobile phone while driving, whether it’s handheld or hands-free, delays a driver’s reactions as much as having a blood alcohol concentration at the legal limit of .08 percent. • Driving while using a mobile phone reduces the

Setting The Stage (NAPSI)—With a flood of real estate listings on the market, sellers continuously search for ways to stand out. The process is called staging. Done correctly, it can make a house look bigger, brighter, cleaner, warmer and make homebuyers want to buy it. To help, here are some tips: • Curb Appeal: The exterior of the house is the first thing potential buyers see; make sure it’s bright, clean and inviting.

• Clean: Clean from top to bottom, getting rid of clutter and organizing the space. Don’t forget the ceilings and fans. • Brighten Up: Do what you can to help buyers envision living in the space. Make sure windows are streak free. Hide personal pictures. Instead, decorate with fresh flowers. • Living Space: Choose neutral tones for the walls and furniture. Slipcovers are an inexpensive way to spruce up old furniture. Add pillows for pops of

color. • Dining Area: Set your dining room or kitchen table. Use brightly colored plates and napkins. • Master Bedroom: You can make the space appear larger by limiting furniture to essentials; a bed and dresser will do. Working closely with a licensed real estate agent can often help sellers achieve the best results. For more staging and DIY tips, visit www.Homes.com's Idea Gallery.

Crossroads Farm at Grossmann’s and the Ethical Humanist Society of Long Island are cohosting a Thursday night movie series on Food Sustainability and Challenges for a Hungry Planet at the Ethical Society, 38 Old Country Road in Garden City. On September 13th, the film will be Queen Of The Sun, an award-winning documentary about the importance of the lowly honeybee, and how colony collapses can interrupt global food production. The September 20th film is Dive! about the amount of edible, good

food that is thrown away – wasted – every day, in a nation where millions still go hungry. The September 27th movie is Forks Over Knives, in which medical research demonstrates that processed food is leading to epidemics of obesity and diabetes. Each movie starts at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a discussion with an expert in the organic food movement. Crossroads Farm at Grossmann’s, a project of the nonprofit Nassau Land Trust, is the last remaining farm in southwest Nassau County,

located in Malverne. The Ethical Humanist Society of Long Island has long been concerned with challenges of both e n v i r o n m e n t a l destruction and the needs of the poor Tickets are $10 per movie or $25 for all three, and are available in person at Crossroads Farm (480 Hempstead Avenue, Malverne) or in person or by mail at the Ethical Humanist Society (516.741.7304), or at the door. Ticket price includes refreshments! For directions, go to www.ehsli.org.

yourself. Beyond providing an example of responsible behavior, this creates a safer driving environment. 2. Explain to your teens the seriousness of the situation and let them know that it is important to have a plan in order to avoid temptation. For example, have them always keep their cell phone off while driving or in the backseat out of reach to avoid distraction completely. 3. Learn more from the experts in mobile

technology at LG by visiting the company’s LG Text Ed website, www.lgtexted.com. As part of its Text Education campaign, LG offers insights and solutions on how to avoid possibly harmful behaviors such as distracted driving. In order to keep distractions to a minimum, LG encourages all drivers to never text while driving and to always use a handsfree Bluetooth device when operating a vehicle.

In addition to the walk, the day includes a light breakfast, a candlelight memorial service, and an opportunity for parents to share their memories with others as well as create a personal memory page for inclusion in Winthrop’s Memory Scrap Book. Any individuals who wish to create a personal memory page for inclusion in the Memory Scrap Book are asked to bring it with them the day of the walk. A donation of $15 per person is requested by September 28th; children under 12 years of age may participate for free. All proceeds benefit

Winthrop’s Perinatal Bereavement Team, which is dedicated to providing education, comfort and support to help families cope with the loss of a child.

(NAPSI)—There are steps parents and others can take to drive down the dreadful rate of traffic injuries and fatalities. An estimated 6,000 people are killed and 500,000 people are injured annually because someone was texting, e-mailing or talking on a mobile phone while driving. The Facts Dr. Joel Haber, a clinical psychologist and LG Text Ed council member, explains that for teens, texting and driving is an even bigger problem than it is for adults. First, kids text more.
