Our Police Department Has Made New York City One Of
The SAFEST Big Cities In The USA
JOHN CATSIMATIDIS Candidate for Mayor 2013
• 13,212 murders in the 11 years BEFORE Mayor Bloomberg • 5,849 murders in the 11 years DURING Mayor Bloomberg
That’s 7,383 lives saved!
As Mayor, I Will See That Our Police Dept. Is Allowed To Continue This Excellent Work
Keep New York City Safe!
Through The Outstanding Command Of Police Commissioner Ray Kelly:
• This year, murders are down 29% from the 50-year low in 2012. • They stop & question individuals about whom they have reasonable suspicion - a widely used and lawful police tactic upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1968. • In 2012 civilian complaints were the lowest in five years. That’s progress - and a trend we need to continue!

Police Sergeants Union Slam CSA Union Promise $250K To Oppose Act’s Supporters In Election BY JOE MARVILLI Staff Writer The New York City Sergeants Benevolent Association threatened to spend a quarter of a million dollars targeting council members who supported what it saw as a danger to the NYPD and the City as a whole: the Community Safety Act. Dozens of members of the fifth largest police union in the country filled a ballroom at Antun’s Restaurant in Queens Village on July 30 to find out what the CSA would mean for them if it becomes law. Ed Mullins, President of the SBA, said that he would use the full power of the union to make sure the CSA does not become law. If it does, the SBA will dedicate $250,000 to targeting the weakest, pro-CSA Council members in the upcoming election. “It makes us the bad guy. Every member of the NYPD can be sued,” he said. “The City Council is not addressing the issue for what it’s really worth.” The CSA is made up of two separate bills. The first part, called the End NYPD Discriminatory Profiling Bill, would allow anyone to sue the police department if they have been discriminated against by an officer. The second part, the NYPD Oversight Act, would establish an Inspector General who would oversee the NYPD and publish reports of their findings to the public.
The legislation was approved by the City Council in June and has since been vetoed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The Council is planning to override the veto. On two screens, Mullins displayed the names and photos of all the council members who supported the CSA.

Congressional Pilgrimage Ends In Jackson Hts. BY TRIshA sAkhuJA Staff Writer The first-ever Becoming America Congressional Pilgrimage led by the Faith and Politics Institute started from Washington D.C. on July 25 and came to a close on July 27 at the Jewish Center of Jackson Heights. U.S. Rep Joseph Crowley (D-Jackson Heights) led the bipartisan delegation with co-leader U.S. Rep Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.), House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and 15 of their colleagues from the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. “This trip was an opportunity to set politics aside and focus on the spirit of what ‘Becoming America’ means to us personally and what it means to us as a country,” Cantor said. The three-day trip consisted of more than 70 political, religious, community and business leaders from around the country, all of whom reflected on the first-hand stories from immigrants at various stops along the

Report: Foreign Seniors Spike in Boro BY LuIs GROndA Staff Writer Queens has seen the biggest increase of foreign–born seniors in the City, according to a report released last week. The Borough has seen its foreignborn senior population increase by 42,000, according to the Center for an Urban Future, a Manhattanbased think tank. The report looks at the growing number of seniors not born in this country compared the elderly born in the United States. Every borough saw its foreignborn senior population increase according to this report, which got its numbers from the latest census data measured between 2000 and 2010. Broken down by neighborhood, Flushing and Whitestone placed first in the Borough, with more than 25,000 foreign-born seniors living in those neighborhoods. This change can be attributed to immigrants from Asia migrating to the Borough over the last three decades. “Since 1980, the number of European immigrants living in the City has dropped by half, even as Asian immigrants have increased sevenfold, and African and Latin American immigrants fivefold. As these communities have grown and matured, New York has seen the number of seniors from these regions swell dramatically,” Christian Gonzalez-Rivera, the think tank’s Research Associate and author of the report, wrote in the study. Other Borough statistics highlighted in the report include Howard Beach and South Ozone Park seeing their foreign-born senior population increase by 112 percent, the fourth largest increase in the City overall. In addition to that, several other neighborhoods in Queens made the list for the increase in the aforementioned population, including The Rockaways, Bellerose/Rosedale and Bayside/Little Neck. The Rockaways saw an 83 percent increase from 2000 to 2010, 63 percent for Bellerose/Rosedale in the same time period and 52 percent for Bayside/ Little Neck.

Mayoral Candidates Debate in Jackson Hts. By Luis Gronda Staff Writer Just days after more news was revealed about the sexting scandal that forced him to resign as Congressmen, Anthony Weiner appeared at a mayoral forum with much hoopla. Weiner was one of four candidates to appear at the debate in Jackson Heights last week. He was joined by hopefuls City Comptroller John Liu, Adolfo Carrion and Sal Albanese. The forum concentrated on women’s issues in the Borough and was co-hosted by four advocacy groups, including Voces Latinas and Latinas in Action. Weiner pleaded his case to the audience for why he should be mayor, noting that he has fought for the middle-class his entire political career and he will continue to do the same when he takes City Hall. “New York is a city that represents a ladder, a ladder that lets you pull yourself up. You come here not expecting miracles. You just want a little bit of help, you want someone who hears your voices,” he said. “You want someone that will help you with the big things: make sure there’s an affordable place that you can try to rent, make sure there’s a job that you’re not being treated poorly at, make sure that when you send your child out to school, they’re going to a safe building.”

He also said that people not wanting him to run for mayor is a positive thing to look for in a candidate for that seat. “There are a lot of people in this town who don’t want me to get elected. They didn’t want me to even run, they don’t want me to run now,” Weiner said. “And what I say to you is that’s a good thing to look for in someone who’s going to be fighting for you. I’m showing you every single day that I’m
prepared to stand up and fight.” Following the forum, a group of reporters chased after him outside to ask questions about the new sexting scandal that came out days earlier. Following the questioning, Weiner walked to a waiting SUV as reporters followed him shouting more questions. He did a quick sprint to the car, eluding the horde of journalists. As for the other candidates at the forum, Liu, Carrion and Albanese all
talked about various City issues. When asked about what can be done to curb the school dropout rate among Latino youth, Liu said that kids must start getting education at an earlier age and having universal prekindergarten classes for four year olds and universal pre-school for three year olds and make it affordable to parents to send these schools. Responding to a question about policing in New York City, Carrion said one way to ease tensions many people have with the NYPD and the Stop & Frisk policy is to hire more multi-lingual officers and teach officers another language if they are unable to speak a second language. He said that NYC is a multi-cultural city and the police force should respond to that by making sure they can speak more languages. Albanese criticized Weiner at one point during the forum for his many sex scandals. “If you think he’s going to go the extra mile to protect women in this City, based on his history, I’ll sell you the Brooklyn Bridge,” he said. Albanese added that he wants to push the State legislature to pass a bill that would create pay equality between men and women in the City.

FMCP Conservancy Advocates for Park By Luis Gronda Staff Writer While a deal made between the City and the United States Tennis Association will create a conservancy dedicated to Flushing Meadows Corona Park, the president of an existing conservancy questions the need to create a second one. When asked about the creation of the USTA Alliance, the new conservancy created to help the park’s upkeep, Jean Silva, president of the Flushing Meadows Corona Park conservancy, wonders why they did not work more with the existing conservancy. “Why are we recreating the wheel?” she said. “They didn’t check Google to see if there is a conservancy already?” Silva said she is concerned about the $10.5 million the park will receive, because it is unknown how exactly that funding will be spent. However, she said the $10.5 million that FMCP will get from the USTA is a good start, because the park badly needs the money for upgrades and repairs. “Everyone has to think of the park first,” she said. The deal for a new conservancy raised questions, given the origi-

Silva said that while on areas like Willow Lake and the the group recently met with Coun- park’s wildlife, and, with the alliance, cilwoman Julissa Ferreras (D-East they will concentrate on the park as Elmhurst) before the deal was made, a whole including the existing soccer she said, to Silva’s knowledge, that fields.

ficials or donations from residents. She said that they use that money to either fund events at the park or to pay for small renovations at the green space. She said that the conservancy was allocated about $20,000 from several Queens City Council members this year, but declined to say who specifically because they have not yet received the money. Montalvo said that Ferreras allocated $5,000 to the conservancy to create and promote events in the park. Silva said that the group is centered on being an advocate for FMCP and doing what the majority of parkgoers want for the green space. Her desire to meet public approval was apparent when discussing the proposed soccer stadium, which is still up for debate. She declined to take a position on the issue, instead saying that they will side with whatever the majority of residents decide is best for the park and the Borough. For now, Silva said they are focused on the several events they have planned at the park, including a clean-up of Willow Lake planned for this Saturday.

In Our OpInIOn
Better Be Prepared Last week, the City Council finally approved a series of legislation meant to help New York City in the event of another emergency situation like Superstorm Sandy. The bills’ passage comes after a dozen oversight hearings and nine months after Sandy leveled parts of Queens. As we approach hurricane season once again, many assume that a storm the likes of Sandy will not hit the City again. But with changing weather systems, we can never be sure what Mother Nature will bring. Parts of the Rockaways are still recovering. Full A Train service to that area was just recently restored and many homeowners are still fighting with City and State agencies for help rebuilding nine months later. Superstorm Sandy showed a failing towards the people of Queens and instead of taking immediate action to ensure these failures never occurred again, the City took nine months to discuss new emergency systems. Given the nature of City government, who knows how long it will be before these systems are implemented. Hopefully this year, hurricane season gives the City a pass. We may not be able to take another storm.
In YOur OpInIOn Addressing Real Problems
To The Editor: n the July 25-31, 2013 edition of the Queens Tribune were three letters with various views of the verdict in the Zimmerman trial. Are those upset over it also upset that in the 513 days from the murder to the verdict 11,106 Blacks were murdered by other Blacks, according to FBI statistics? Or that 98 percent of interracial crimes are committed by Blacks against other races, mostly whites? Why aren’t Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the NAACP and writers to this column protesting over that? As for boycotting Florida, why wasn’t the same suggested against California after the injustice in the Simpson verdict? And why isn’t anyone demanding that the dealer who sold Trayvon Martin drugs be indicted as well? Perhaps if Martin was home the night he died, doing his homework, the crime would never have occurred. The real problem is the disintegration of the Black family.
With 73 percent of their births out of wedlock, why aren’t the aforementioned protestors, along with the incurable white liberals, addressing that issue? Why aren’t they demanding Black teenage girls devote themselves to study and make education a status symbol in lieu of a child out of wedlock? Or speaking to Black teenage boys and have them focus on school and careers? Both genders need to attend to those instead of basketball, rap music, hip hop, MTV, Black jargon and the fear of “acting white.” Not obsessing with diversions are why the children of Asian, Russian, Indian and Cuban families are excelling in school and business. I realize the issue is sensitive and controversial. But it will not improve unless the real causes are addressed. Those are the real causes, not white racism, the Tea Party or Republicans. It is the web of government intervention, social dependence and government assistance that has held Blacks down and created the disintegration of AfricanAmerican families. But just like the lyrics in Les Bicyclettes de Belsize, the depression goes on and on, round and round,
spinning and spinning - generation after generation. Instead of young Blacks looking to education, and raising families with two parents, instead the government becomes the father and the cycle of dependence never ends, going round and round and round. And instead of Black leaders and white liberals decrying the hipster, gangsta-lifestyle glorified in Hollywood and music, the artists are lauded and glorified. President Obama has invited them to the White House and praised them. Why aren’t Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the NAACP and the omnipresent white liberals discussing and demonstrating against these, the real causes of the deplorable condition of African-American lives? I guess it’s easier and gets more publicity putting the blame on outside forces, especially phantom white racism, than attacking the real source. The issue is not going to go away until the root of the problem is attacked head on. Otherwise 40 years from now the situation will be exactly the same. Edward Riecks Howard Beach

Why So Angry?
To The Editor: was just reading the “In Your Opinion” section of the Queens Tribune for July 25-31 and I was very saddened by the letter writer from Briarwood concerning the President and his comments on the Trayvon Martin case. First, I believe we all have a right to our opinions but the letter writer’s obvious hatred and veiled suggestion that some harm should come to the President of the United States crosses a line for me. Where is this anger coming from? Ever since President Obama was elected, small-minded people, in and out of Congress, have made it their goal to fight against all of his administration’s policies. It doesn’t even matter that many of Obama’s decisions are based in Republican ideas. As an example, the Affordable Care Act is an almost direct copy of the Mitt Romney health care bill we have now in Massachusetts. Where is this anger coming from? As the first Black President of the United States, Obama has not, until now, spoken about the racial issues in the country. His comments about the Trayvon Martin case were an eloquent and thoughtful beginning to a discussion on race that many people would rather not have, but is long overdue. Perhaps this is where some of this anger comes from. Joseph Tolson Jackson Heights
Spending Cuts Needed To The Editor: I just heard the Secretary of the Treasury complaining about the Republicans’ warning that they will not increase the debt limit. He said that millions of Americans will not get paid if they can’t borrow money. What he did not say is, why does America continuously Alan Goldsher Director of Marketing Maureen Coppola Advertising Administrator Shelly Cookson Corporate Advertising Account Executives Merlene Carnegie Shari Strongin Tom Eisenhauer Maury Warshauer Elizabeth Rieger
Accounting: Lisbet Espinal, Elizabeth Mance
have to borrow money? How much money can we borrow before the lenders realize that we are a bad risk? What is going to happen when no one will lend us money? We now owe 17 trillion dollars and have a contracted debt of 35 trillion dollars. We are currently paying over 500 billion dollars in interest on our current debt and we are borrowing money to pay the interest which any idiot knows can’t continue as the interest payment will soon consume your entire income. There is only $70 trillion in all the countries of the world. Why didn’t he say that we must cut our spending? When you are over your head in debt, the only intelligent thing to do is cut spending. John Procida, Flushing
Time To Step Aside To The Editor: With the latest sex scandal revelations, along with the resignation of his mayoral campaign manager, it is time for Anthony Weiner to drop out of the mayoral race. With all of this negative publicity, there is absolutely no logical way that this person would even be able to win the Democratic mayoral primary. He has caused far too much damage to his credibility both as a decent person and as a politician. His wife continues to stand steadfastly by him, but how much longer will that continue? He needs to seek professional help, because he has a major problem - one that seems to be worsening with each new revelation regarding his sex scandal. Voters need an honest, straightforward politician to run this City. Anthony Weiner is neither. John Amato, Fresh Meadows GOT A BEEF?

QUEENS thiS wEEk Ron Kim Contest Looks To Restore “Grit” BY JOE MARVILLI Staff Writer Giving consideration to Queens residents who have struggled with obstacles in their life, Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Flushing) has created a new initiative to support those who display a quality known he described as “grit.” In partnership with Gary Park, from Charles Khym Law Firm, Kim will provide prizes for individuals who demonstrate grit, defined as perseverance in the face of obstruction. The five essay winners who best display their story of resilience will receive a $200 prize from the Charles Khym Law Firm, along with a certificate of merit from New York State. Those interested can enter the contest at www.gritify.us. The winners will be featured in a short documentary on the website, which will be distributed statewide to inspire community members and young people. The deadline for the contest is Sept. 5. “It’s the fundamental trait that makes individuals go from failure to failure without losing hope,” Kim said. “When I walk down Flushing, I see grit everywhere. Working families from all walks of life have that resiliency.” Kim said he wants to make grit a glorified trait, moving young people away from self-indulgence and towards creating long-term visions they can work to make a reality. One story Kim praised is that of Susan Stuart, an immigrant who was accepted to Queensborough Community College on a full scholarship in her mid-50s. She is about to graduate and is looking at different four-year schools to study psychology. Her journey was not an easy one though. “I would like to give back to the community,” she said. “I can share my story and help see that America doesn’t lose this dream.” Reach Joe Marvilli at (718) 3577400, Ext. 125, firstname.lastname@example.org, or @Joey788.

Captain Jim Duff of Ladder Company 163 said the money raised will be put towards building a bailout wall in the back yard of the firehouse, where the firefighters can practice jumping out of windows using a new device, known as the personal safety system. The new device will help firefighters flee buildings when they are trapped inside. The Sunnyside Boulevard Bars utilized their joint efforts to organize events that bring people together and, in turn, help give back to the community. John Murphy, owner of PJ Horgans, located at 42-17 Queens Blvd., an establishment in Sunnyside since the 1930s, said all of the venues came together to promote the neighborhood and recognize the community. “We are recognizing as a group that we can help other groups,” Murphy said in reference to their charitable efforts. The next event Sunnyside’s Boulevard Bars will host is The Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day Music Festival on Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. Proceeds from the festival will go towards the Sunnyside/ Woodside Boys and Girls Club.

Co-op/Condo FEMA Coverage Bill Announced
By JOE MARVILLI Staff Writer
When Superstorm Sandy blew through Queens last October, it damaged homes all over the Borough, from one-family houses to co-ops and condos. While the Federal Emergency Management Agency helped out the one-family houses and many other residencies, co-ops and condos were excluded from assistance. Nearly a year later, U.S. Rep Steve Israel (D-Melville) is introducing legislation to make sure co-ops and condos are covered by FEMA for future storms. As it is, co-ops and condos can only receive loans, not grants, from the agency. The announcement was made on July 29 by Israel in the midst of Bay Terrace Cooperative Gardens, along with the backing of State Sen. Tony Avella (D-Bayside), Councilman Mark Weprin (D-Oakland Gardens) and many co-op homeowners. FEMA does not offer grants to co-ops and condos because it categorizes them as businesses, rather than residential units. Israel’s bill, which was officially introduced on July 30, would allow the co-ops and condos throughout the U.S. to apply for grants in future disasters. “A co-op may have hedges, but it is not a hedge fund,” Israel said. “It is a community of homeowners.” The Congressman said he believed the legislation would be difficult to pass due to the low quantity of co-ops
throughout the country and the general gridlock in Washington D.C. For this reason, the bill is not retroactive and would not apply to damage from Superstorm Sandy. Two co-op presidents were on hand to discuss the struggles to repair after Sandy and how without FEMA grants, they are now forced to pass those costs on to the homeowners. “They think of us as business associations. This is my home, this is our co-op,” Warren Schreiber, president of the Bay Terrace Cooperative Section, said. “When we have damage, the cost of repairing that damage falls on the shoulders of middle class families.” “It is absolutely unconscionable that FEMA refuses to help the working class communities, like Glen Oaks, like Bay Terrace, that have sustained such damage. I’d like to remind FEMA that the folks that live in these co-op communities are no different than folks that live in private homes,” Bob Friedrich, president of Glen Oaks Village, said. Both Avella and Weprin stated their support for the measure as well. “Co-ops or condos are still one family homes and they should be treated exactly the same,” Avella said. “We love co-op living and we want to make sure that they’re treated like homeowners, which they are,” Weprin said.

Council Passes 9 Sandy Bills By TRIshA sAkhuJA Staff Writer In order to properly prepare for future storms like Superstorm Sandy, Councilman and Chair of the Public Safety Committee Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Astoria) along with the City Council, approved nine bills regarding the City’s response system to emergency situations. The Public Safety hearing, held on July 23 and the City Council hearing held on July 24, allowed for discussion that would require the Office of Emergency Management to develop plans in several major areas. The requirements include, creating fuel, traffic and shelter management plans for when the City has to declare a state of emergency. “Thousands of Queens residents lost everything during Hurricane Sandy – with some tragically paying the ultimate price – and we owe it to them to ensure that the City is better prepared to deal with our next emergency,” Vallone said. Since the storm, the City Council held 12 oversight hearings where they received insight on how the City responded to the storm and what could
be done better in the future. From the data collected, the Public Safety Committee developed a list of recommendations. Vallone sponsored five of those nine bills. “These bills will force the City to deal with issues, like the lack of gasoline after Hurricane Sandy,” Vallone said. “The City will need to get generators into the gas stations.” The plans include a food and water access plan to provide the City with a community recovery plan and emergency shelters, improve the methods by which homebound residents and people with special medical needs are tracked, rescued and evacuated. It would also help small business owners and non-profit organizations recover from future storms. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn stated her support for the nine bills in a statement. “It is imperative that we’re better prepared for future storms in order to keep New Yorkers safe and to protect our infrastructure,” she said. “This legislation addresses key issues that are vital to protecting New Yorkers in all five boroughs.” Reach Trisha Sakhuja at (718) 3577400, Ext. 128, firstname.lastname@example.org, or @Tsakhuja13.

Elmhurst Community Garden Up For Sale By Trisha sakhuja Staff Writer Community advocates and elected officials gathered at Elmhurst Community Garden on July 26 to rally against the sale of the garden’s site. Youth from an Elmhurst-based organizing group, Young Governors, took it upon themselves to transform the litter-filled vacant lot at Kneeland Avenue and Manilla Street into a community garden. John Blaha, owner of the abandoned and garbage-ridden lot, which became an eye sore for the nearby Elmhurst community over the years, put the lot up for sale at the end of last year. In 2012, local community groups like the Young Governors, New Life Community Development and Community Board 4, came together to transform the vacant, neglected lot into a sustainable, healthy and beautiful community garden. Jennifer Chu, president of the Elmhurst Community Garden said, “this lot made our neighborhood look bad.” What is now a thriving community garden with fruit and vegetable plots and a compost site, Redd Sevilla, executive director of the New Life Community Development Corporation, recalled a time when people were “almost obligated to litter in the lot.” “Once we were strangers, now we recognize we are neighbors and now, as friends,” Sevilla said. “There is nothing like a common garden for the neighbors to starts caring.” The goal of the project was to clean the lot, educate the community about
sustainable and healthy foods and donate the vegetables to the nearby Food Pantry, said Tala Haider, 17, facilitator of Young Governors. The most common vegetables they grow are squash and zucchini. Even though the community groups were aware this garden would be temporary, they have grown an emotional attachment to the garden and the purpose it fulfills. Annie Wang, 16, a member of Young Governors, spoke of the first time they started to clean the lot and how long the weeds had grown. “We used caution tape to close off the lot, dug for six hours and did a lot of planting, but we feel accomplished to see the garden now,” said Wang. U.S. Rep Grace Meng (D-Flushing) thanked the owner of the lot at the press conference for working with the community and allowing the garden to thrive. “The sale of this site, one of the few green spaces in the area, would be a huge loss for the community and a major disappointment to all the teens and local residents who worked tirelessly to makeover this space,” Meng said in a statement. “Hopefully, some type of resolution can be reached so that this precious piece of land can be preserved and remain a community gem for many years to come.” Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz (D- Forest Hills) said she will sit down with the property’s owner, local community groups, elected officials and CB4 to discuss a proper plan for the garden.

Katz Seeks To Reshape Queens Melinda Katz says she is going to mold the Queens Borough President’s office to fit the vision she has for the Borough. Katz, a Forest Hills resident who has held public offices in the past such as City Councilwoman until 2009, spoke about what she plans to do if she is elected as Queens Borough President, during an editorial board meeting at the Queens Tribune. She said that she stands out compared to the other candidates for the seat because she has a history of building coalitions to work on issues during her time as a member of the City Council, State Assembly and her time in private practice “I bring a lot of different perspectives to the job that I don’t believe all the candidates do,” Katz said. “I also think, inherently, people want their Borough President to be a coalition builder, someone who can bring folks to the table and make compromises.” When asked about what her priorities are in the first days of taking office, Katz said that she wants to build a staff that will reflect what she wants for Queens for her term as

have been “playing phone tag for a week” and have not yet discussed an endorsement or offering him the Deputy Borough President position, which has been speculated in the past as a possible job for Comrie after his term as Councilman is over. She said an endorsement from Comrie would be a boost to her campaign. “I’d love it if he supported me, I’ve worked with him for the last 20 years,” she said. Melinda Katz said her history of building “I intend, no matter what, on coalitions is one reason she should be a working with him for another Queens Borough President. 20 years, God willing.” Regarding the agreeBorough President.

“I do like the idea that there is an improvement fund that comes from an organization that will make $58 million dollars a year because of the extra 0.68 acres of land,” she said. “If you’re going to make more money off the park, then you spend more money on it.” When questioned about reviving the Long Island Rail Road line running from the Rockaways to Rego Park or using that space to create an elevated bike path known as the QueensWay, Katz did not take a side on the issue. She said that there are concerns with both projects and she would like to sit down with both sides to discuss their ideas after she takes office.

Vallone Priorities: Public Safety, Economy Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Astoria) has always been an outspoken advocate for Queens. Running as a candidate for Queens Borough President, he stopped by the Queens Tribune to talk about policy, what his Borough Presidency would look like and what makes him stand out from his opponents. Vallone had his priorities centered on two major issues in Queens: public safety and the economy. Touting his experience as the Public Safety Committee Chair and as a small business owner, the Councilman said he was the only candidate with the qualifications for the position. “Everyone wants an area where they can thrive economically. Everyone wants good schools,” he said. “What I’m going to do is represent everyone equally.” On day one as BP, the Councilman said he would focus on hiring the best staff he could find, adding that finding the best means finding diversity as well. “You can’t help but find diversity if you look for the best people,” he said. If elected, Vallone said he would also be more involved in making policy and in working with City Hall and the City Council. When it came to a deputy BP though, the Councilman

would not confirm if he would select Councilman Leroy Comrie (D-St. Albans), who has been rumored to be attached to the job. “Leroy and I are good, good friends and I give him credit for staying independent as long as he has. I’m not sure if that’s going to last forever,” Vallone said. “He and I are close friends, we’ve worked together a long time and I would love to continue to work with him.” In terms of business and development policy, Vallone said he would have a hands-off approach for the former and wants to limit the latter
to appropriate areas. Having been in charge of his family law firm, Vallone & Vallone, he expressed that only those who had never run a business would create over-regulation. “My philosophy is stay the hell away from our businesses,” he said. “We will create the jobs. We will pay the taxes. Just stop hurting us.” Vallone said he would make sure there is no out-of-character development in Queens’ neighborhoods, saying that it would happen only in appropriate locations and only if the infrastructure to support new buildings is there first. “I led the way on that fight to make sure that Astoria retains its character and stays the way it is now,” he said. “I stopped development in inappropriate locations, but I allowed development on areas like 30th Avenue, Broadway, 21st Street, Steinway. When development is appropriate, it can happen. That is going to be my philosophy in Queens.” While Vallone did support the development of Willets Point when it came before the City Council in 2008, he said the current project, which includes a retail center, is nothing like the one that was approved. “I don’t support the current project. When they came to the City Council, they had a plan to develop Willets Point, just Willets Point,” he said. “I think they need to come back to us.”
My philosophy is stay “ the hell away from our businesses. We will create the jobs. We will pay the taxes. Just stop hurting us. - Peter Vallone Jr.
Vallone also touched on the City’s controversial Stop & Frisk policy, along with the Community Safety Act that recently passed and was vetoed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The Council is now looking to override the veto. The Councilman attacked both of his Democratic opponents, Melinda Katz and State Sen. Tony Avella (D-Bayside), for their views on those issues. “Tony Avella was down in southeast Queens at one of our forums, where he said ‘We need to end Stop & Frisk.’ I was outraged that he would sell out the people he represents like that. I’ve been in his neighborhood many times and they support the NYPD,” Vallone said. “Neither of my opponents have taken a position on the Community Safety Act, which is probably the biggest issue facing Queens today.” Reach Joe Marvilli at (718) 3577400, Ext. 125, email@example.com, or @Joey788.

to develop the area from a lone, rundown premise to a full-service production center has led to a reinvigorating of the entire neighborhood. Hundreds of jobs, office space for new tenants and new businesses have all come about after the studio flourished in the area.

Biz Tips For Banking Choices From figuring out where to open up a new shop so that it gets great foot traffic to choosing the right employees, all of a small business owner’s decisions are important for the health of their business. What should a small business owner consider when making this choice? Convenience It is not convenient when a bank is only open the same hours as a business. Banks that are open early and open late, as well as on the weekends, help take the stress out of having to run the errand during the work day. Great product choices, like low minimum-balance business checking accounts are also an important convenience. TD Bank, for example, has a number of small business checking solutions, including a competitive
$1,500 minimum balance - which can help the small business owner avoid monthly fees - on its TD Business Convenience Checking Plus account. One-stop shop Finding a bank that can offer a breadth of banking services will help business owners streamline their finances so that they are not running off to one bank to withdraw money, and taking that cash to a different bank to pay the bills. The ability to open a line of credit where a small-business owner also has a business checking account, business credit card and treasury management service is truly convenient. A one-stop shop approach, getting all business banking done in one place, can help the small business owner focus on making the bottom line.

Cosmos Set To Return On Saturday By Luis Gronda
With opening kickoff drawing closer, the New York Cosmos introduced themselves to the New York media this week. The team held a media day event in Manhattan on Monday evening, which gave its players and coaches an opportunity to speak with reporters ahead of their Aug. 3 season opener, its first since 1984. Players and coaches expressed excitement about getting the season underway. The team has been training for its opener, including playing four preseason friendlies in England last week. The Cosmos have three Queens residents on their squad. Head coach Giovanni Savarese resides in Howard Beach, midfielder Sebastian Guenzatti lives in College Point and forward David Diosa is from Jackson Heights. Savarese said that he is not sending any different messages to his team ahead of their season opener, saying that each player knows what they must do. “We’re there to play soccer,” he said. “And to be able to do it in the best possible way and to honor the club’s past.” He added that, in terms of their style of play, they will try to be an offensive-
minded team that is comfortable with the ball and is aggressive when they have ball possession. Speaking about the neighborhood where he lives, he said that while his home was one of many that took on damage from Superstorm Sandy, the community pulled together to support each other during that difficult time. “The people in Howard Beach and Queens, they all were very supportive,” he said. “New York united to help out people in need and in those difficult moments, it was great to see the best part of New York.” Guenzatti, who attended Francis Lewis High School before beginning his soccer career, said he was looking forward to playing on American soil once again. After high school, he went to Uruguay to play soccer, but came back when he was recruited to the Cosmos. He said that Savarese used to coach him when he was younger and they get along very well. “I have my mom and dad here, so it’s great to come back to my family and to pay Gio back for everything he’s done for me,” Guenzatti said. Erik Stover, the team’s Chief Operating Officer, said that their Aug. 3 game is only the first step in the club’s return to being a franchise once again and they

hope to build off of that match. Their returning match is being promoted as “Legends Night,” where many of the club’s legends will be honored during a pre-game ceremony. Honorees include Pele, who is also the team’s honorary president. The season opener against the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers will begin at 7 p.m. The team will be running free shuttle buses to Hofstra University from the
Long Island Rail Road Mineola station. You can also take a shuttle bus from Legends Sports Bar in Manhattan, which will cost $20 round trip.

A Hot New Date Spot Opens In Bayside It is about time someone took the old Café on the Green and gave it the renovation and new identity it needed. Thanks to George Makkos and his vision, he has conjured up the ultimate restaurant/bar and catering experience. There are two beautiful dining rooms, entirely redone indoor and outdoor bars and an added separate entrance for the upstairs catering facility, which can seat up to 170 people. Now, because of the private entrance, diners dine peacefully without disruption from parties trampling through their eating experience. The hidden gem that Vivaldi has to offer is the outdoor patio and bar, overlooking a corner of the Clearview Golf Course. The perfect amount of foliage encasing the patio forces you to forget you are in Queens… and without a doubt, this patio rivals its local Bayside competitors. Most importantly, Vivaldi strives to make quality service something that is spoken about, general manager Billy Pappas said, leading his crew to make sure they go above and beyond for their guests. As my guest and I sat down to

eat, we both called out for the grilled octopus served over chickpeas with a Mediterranean yogurt sauce, and our waiter convinced us that it is a must have. The octopus came and went faster then the runner could even place the food down. There were two soft and delicate tentacles with the perfect char, only to be complimented with the cool creamy texture of the yogurt sauce and the sweet gritty flavor of the chickpeas. Next was the meatball appetizer,
served in their house-made tomato and sliced olive marinara with the perfect amount of seasoning and texture, something you thought you could only find in south Italy. For the entrees, my guest went with the pan-roasted Scottish salmon served over creamy faro, apricots, toaste d h a z e l nut an d Alfonzo olive oil, whereas I decided to try one of Viva ldi’s homemade pasta dishes: Trofie All’ Aragosta, a long spiral shaped p a s t a w i t h b a by artichokes, garlic confit, and a lobster nage. While my guest thoroughly enjoyed his salmon, it was the faro and the medley of flavors put together by the chef that made this dish superb. As for my pasta, I almost ate the plate! The lobster was juicy and delicious, and the texture of the pasta was flawless.
As I entered food euphoria, the dessert menu did not concern me, but the time did come, and I trusted my waiter. To my delight, his decision of a homemadecinnamon-sugarcovered-munchkinlike-pastry stuffed with homemade nutella accompanie d by a mixe d berry sauce, called Bombalonis, were the perfect devilish treat. Along with my double espresso (an end of the meal must have for me), I enjoyed every bite of my dessert. Just as I finished, the chef s ent over homemade macaroons for us to enjoy. Justice and hard work has paid off, as this location has the most amount of thought needed to succeed. Vivaldi delivers on all fronts, with in-house dining, a great bar scene and catering too. - Eric Jordan

Separated At Birth?
Can you ﬁgure out who's who? These two have confused some at events throughout Eastern Queens. Paul Graziano, a Democrat running in the City Council District 19 primary, has been to a number of events in the district since he decided to run for office, but some people are seeing him when he is not even there. A number of individuals throughout the District have mistaken reporter Joe Marvilli - who covers that area - for the candidate. People, including
other elected officials, have come up to him, saying "Hey Paul!" and asking how his campaign is going. At one event, Marvilli was even offered a chance to speak on issues affecting voters. He politely declined. The potential mix-ups could make for a great sitcom. If Graziano is able to win the seat in the fall, he could always call on Marvilli to be his stand-in.
A New Pig In The City Last Thursday, people walking on College Point Boulevard may have noticed an unusual site, even by New York’s standards: a pig was wandering down the street. While this could possibly end in disaster, this pig prevailed against the odds. Although the pig is a breed commonly used for pork, he ran into a Parks Department worker instead, saving him from the dinner table. Instead, the worker named him Wilbur, after the hog from “Charlotte’s Web,” and got him sent to Farm Sanctuary in the Finger Lakes. There is a contest on Twitter to rename Wilbur, which can be
found by following @FarmSanctuary. We here at QConf are pulling for Wilbur to be renamed Babe, since he was a "Pig in the City." Although, we can't help but wonder why the little guy was sent to a farm upstate, when he could have spent his time at the Queens Zoo, letting City kids enjoy his company.
Where You At, G? As New Yorkers know, going by subway from Queens to Brooklyn is more annoying than it should be. You either have to take a long train ride through Manhattan or you can wait for the G train. Given the extremely long wait times for G trains and the amount of times a year they are not running at all, this QConf reporter is pretty sure the G stands for “gigantic pain.” Gov. Andrew Cuomo has tossed G train riders a bone this week, though. He said arrivals will increase from every 10 minutes to every eight minutes during evening rush hour, which lasts from 3 p.m.
to 9 p.m. on weekdays. A small improvement, but something is better than nothing! Of course, given that this is the MTA, the change will not be implemented until June 2014. Until then, we recommend that you bring a book if you are going to take the G train. Possibly a novel the length of “War and Peace.”

Another Apology? Salgado, a long-shot Erick Salgado mayoral candidate of Puerto Rican decent, has demanded Anthony Weiner apologize to Latinos for using the handle “Carlos Danger” in his latest sexting scandal involving a 22-year-old Indiana woman. “For Anthony Weiner to hide under a Spanish name to do his bad behavior is very insulting to the Spanish community,” Salgado reportedly said. “I believe he has to apologize to the Latino community. Every time, many people do wrong behavior, it’s always a Carlito, a Pedrito, a Miguelito. But behind that name, it was really not a Carlito. It was a ‘Anthony Weiner.’ You have to apologize to the Latino community. It’s an insult.”
The New York Mets are inviting everyone over for a slumber party! On Saturday, Aug. 10, fans will have the opportunity to sleep on the field at Citi Field in tents and sleeping bags. According to a team press release, the all-day event will feature the TV broadcast of the Mets game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on the stadium’s Citi Vision Board. It will also feature a dinner buffet, a late-night snack, breakfast and non-alcoholic drinks. Mr. and Mrs. Met will also attend the party and meet with stadium guests. Fans who attend the sleepover will get a ticket to the team’s Sept. 28 game against the Milwaukee Brewers. We guess many people are eager to not sleep in the comfort of their own bed for a night in exchange for the hard surface that is Citi Field.
COMEDIANS OF QUEENS
Jeff Lorber Despite being on QPTV, the public access television channel in Queens, for 10 years, Bayside native Jeff Lorber still considers himself a comedian on the rise and his show to be a “breakthrough comedian show.” “Being in showbiz is tough,” Lorber admitted “At the end of the day, it comes down to who you know. But being on QPTV all this time, I feel like I’m an actual part of Queens. This is who I am; I love doing shows.” Lorber describes himself as being a comedian since birth. “Right out of the womb, I was making my mom laugh,” he said. During his childhood, he dabbled in the arts; playing the piano, attending theatre camp, etc. Comedy was the one interest that stuck. He looks to the classics for what he considers to be truly funny. “You want to know how to do comedy right? Look at Woody Allen, or Jerry Lewis. Today a lot of people want gross out humor; it’s all instant gratification. Nobody wants to take the time to come up with a really good joke, or listen to one.” Lorber takes a lot of pride in his show, even if it is on public access television. That alone means he does not always have the finances to shoot it, but when he does, he goes above and beyond for the fans he has around Queens.
“Since I started, I’ve shot about fifty episodes,” he explains. “Each show is different. Sometimes, I’m on Internet radio, and I shoot that. Or I collaborate with other QPTV people. I’ll go out into the community and see if people know who I am; I shot an episode in Forest Hills like that,” he said. As difficult as being a fairly unknown comedian can be, Lorber says that he would love to eventually be New Yorker of the Week, do a live show or be on CBS. “You want to know who I am? Watch my show,” he said. Viewers can catch the Jeff Lorber show every Thursday and Sunday night at 11:30 p.m. on QPTV, channel 34. They can also visit www.lorbz.com or call (212) 636-9823 for a chance to be on it.
Finding Cold Hard Cash A Queens woman was taught a hard lesson, never keep your life savings inside of your refrigerator. Better yet, do not discard your old refrigerator if your life savings are hidden inside. It is hard to believe that Magda Castillo, a resident of Kew Gardens, realized she never took out $5,020 from the refrigerator until after it made its way to the Atlantic Recycling lot in South Ozone Park. She hurried to the lot on
Thursday morning, but left thinking she may never retrieve her life savings. Castillo will always be thankful of employee Mike Downer, who found the refrigerator amid the leftover scrap and metal. Downer did not know how to reach Castillo, so he alerted the media. And to Castillo’s surprise, her life savings were waiting for her at the lot. We here at QConf are happy to know that the media was able to save the day!
