Queens Deadline Where’s the Money?

Liu: Parks Short Millions In Upgrades The Parks Dept. oversees various concessions in the City’s golf courses, ice skating rinks and other facilities. Of the 403 concessionaires in the City, 95 were required to make capital improvements as part of their lease agreement. The report reviewed 54 concessionaires, 14 of which are located in Queens, that were required to make improvements of at least $100,000 by 2010. Although Parks has taken steps to improve its management of concessionaires since a 2004 audit that found similar issues,

“problems continue to beset the Department’s management system,” according to the report. Parks officials “strongly disagree” with the audit’s findings of a lack of oversight of concessionaire’s capital work, according to a statement from the department. “Parks has successfully managed more than $100 million in privately funded capital improvements by current concessionaires at more than 120 facilities, including Wollman Promised Improvements Rink, Dyker Beach Golf Comptroller John Liu’s report claims Queens’ parks never received $3.2 million in promised and the Shake Shack in capital improved project s due to poor oversight by the parks department.

By JESSICA ABLAMSKY The Alley Pond Driving Range would have had miniature golf and video analysis equipment. Cunningham Tennis Center could have had 10 renovated courts. New birthday rooms at the Flushing Meadows Ice Rink never materialized. But a lack of adequate oversight of concessionaires operating in City parks by the Parks Dept. cost Queens more than $3.2 million in capital improvements, according to a new report by City Comptroller John Liu.

DOE Gets Cash Boost After Bid Win reform in four areas: curriculum; student performance data (an initiative the City is already at the forefront of statewide); teacher assessment and turning around low-performing schools. The DOE will fulfill those commitments, Mittenthal said. A “significant portion” of the Race to the Top money will go toward implementing a new curriculum based on the national Common Core State Standards, an initiative led by the National Governors Association to align education with college-ready standards. “Race to the Top has been a tremendous catalyst for precisely the kind of education reforms we’ve supported and implemented in New York City; now it is up to all of us to live up to this commitment and continue the important work that got us here,” said Chancellor Joel Klein.

By JOSEPH OROV IC Commuters were finally given a reprieve from erratic service when Long Island Rail-

Long Island Railroad riders are back to their usual commutes.

road trains returned to a normal schedule on Sunday at 4 p.m. A fire at Hall Tower, a rail switching post located yards away from Jamaica Station, knocked out some eastbound train service for much of last week. But according to LIRR spokesman Mike Charles, service has been fully restored. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Authorities have not ruled out the possibility of an electrical fire started after heavy downpours last weekend. “Electricity and water don’t mix; we know that,” Charles said, adding the investigation will aid in preventing future outages. Still, the point may be moot as the LIRR is converting to a new rail-switching system based around microprocessors. Charles said the new system is still being tested but should be implemented by late October. Reach Reporter Joseph Orovic at jorovic@queenstribune.com or (718) 3577400, Ext. 127.

• Restart: Either convert a school to a charter school or replace it with a charter school. The DOE may also be able to contract with CUNY or SUNY to manage the school. • Closure: Close the school and enroll students in higher achieving schools. Though the DOE is not mandated to make hiring decisions dependent upon student performance and other factors until 2011, the requirement will be piloted in some public schools over the coming year through a recent federal grant for persistently lowachieving schools. “As a parent of a public school student, I know how much this money is needed,” said Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan (DRidgewood). “As Chairwoman of the Assembly Education Committee, I know Race To the Top money will go a long way in helping New York renew and renovate our education system.” Reach Reporter Jessica Ablamsky at jablamsky@queenstribune.com or (718) 357-7400, Ext. 124.

Among those reforms were raising the state cap on charters from 200 to 460. There are 99 charter schools in New York City, with 27 scheduled to open in the 2010-11 school year. Until negotiations with the state are complete, “I can’t say exactly whether, or how, the money will go directly toward increasing the number of charter schools,” Mittenthal said. Options for turning around low achieving schools are limited. Reform must follow one of the four following models: • Turnaround: Phase out the school and replace it with a new school, or completely redesign the school, including replacing the principal and at least half the staff. • Transformation: Similar to the turnaround model. The principal and at least half the teachers would be replaced. Subsequent hiring would be based on teacher evaluations, including data on student growth, multiple observation-based assessments and portfolios of professional activities.

By JESSICA ABLAMSKY The mood among local elected officials could only be described as celebratory when Mayor Mike Bloomberg announced on Aug. 24 that the City would receive up to $300 million for public education in New York State’s successful Race to the Top bid. “New York State’s selection is a testament to what we’ve accomplished in our City’s schools over the last eight years,” Bloomberg said. “Our students have shown tremendous improvement and now – as a Race to the Top participant – we will work with our teachers and school administrators to raise the bar once again.” The big question, how the Dept. of Education will spend the money, might not be answered for months. DOE officials have 90 days to negotiate with state officials, said agency spokesman Matt Mittenthal. New York State’s application promises

Air Near Highways Worst In Summer concentration of nitrogen dioxide, as areas with the lowest traffic density,� according to the report. Nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide form when fossil fuels are burned, and can irritate the eyes, nose, throat and cause major respirator y problems. Ozone follows a different pat tern of concentration. A gas formed when sunlight reacts with vapors emit ted during fossil fuel combustion, ozone irritates the respiratory tract and

triggers health problems such as asthma attacks, chest pain, coughing and even premature death. Ozone levels were higher in suburban areas that are downwind of high traffic areas, such as the Rockaways and lower Staten Island. “To reach the city’s clean-air goals, and reduce air pollution for people living near busy roads, efforts must continue to expand mass transit options, facilitate walking and bicycling, reduce the number of vehicles in the city, and

speed the shift towards cleaner and more efficient vehicles,� the report stated. The report is part of an air qualit y initiative through the city’s sustainability plan, PlaN YC. T he New York Cit y Community Air Survey aims to measure street-level air quality citywide at different times of the year, identify leading sources of local air pollution and suggest ways to reduce them.

By JESSICA ABLAMSKY During the summer months, cars are an air quality killer, according to a new report from t he Ne w York City Depar tment of Health and Mental Hygiene. In Queens, summert ime air quality varies widely, concentrating heavily along major highways. Days like we have experienced this week, with air quality warnings, are particularly dangerous in these areas. Most major warm weather pollutants in the City are “concentrated in densely populated areas, where traffic is more congested and where more fuel is used for cooking and water heating,� according to the report. “It’s important to remember that all New Yorkers have a stake in improving the Cit y’s air quality,� said City Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley. “Exposure to the pollutants evaluated in this report can cause grave health problems, including cardiovascular and lung diseases, and premature death.� The report, which studie s 2009 air quality, measures five pollutants: fine-par t icle pollution, elemental carbon, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide and ozone. Fine-particle pollution, PM2.5, is a cocktail of solid mat ter and droplets from car exhaust, power plants and other sources that can irritate the eyes, nose, throat and lungs, and worsen chronic medical conditions such as asthma and heart disease, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Although summertime levels were below EPA standards, areas w ith the most traffic had concentrations of PM2.5 that were 15 percent higher than areas with the least amount of traffic. “The study found that areas with the greatest traffic density had three times the concentration of nitric oxide, and twice the

Edit Page In Our Opinion:

Rest In Peace, Tom Queens lost one of its good guys on Friday. Public servant, mentor and long-time Councilman Tom White Jr. passed away after a long battle with cancer. He left behind a legislative and charitable legacy that reverberates within the 28th district, which encompasses chunks of Jamaica, Richmond Hill, Rochdale Village and South Ozone Park. White’s combined 15-year tenure revealed a steady eye on the issues of his constituents; he focused most often on the need for job placement programs and the concerns of minority and women-owned businesses. But it was his founding and leadership of J-CAP, a substance abuse program, which most use to define him Tom was a pioneer in therapeutic communities dating back to the late 1960s. His innovative work with teenagers captured our attention long before he entered politics. But around the present day Queens Tribune, we remember White showing up to one of our Holiday parties, mingling amongst the dapperly-dressed politicos in an Adidas jumpsuit. That was Tom – always casual and undeniably a man of the people. Some are already looking ahead, crunching the numbers and merely guessing – at this point – who will succeed him. We are no less guilty. But we hope the candidates running to fill his seat, whoever they may be, give page 18 a careful read, and understand White set a foundation that could help revive a struggling part of our borough. We extend our heartfelt condolences to those White left behind, both his immediate family and the many others whose lives he touched. Rest in peace, Tom.

Farm Response To The Editor: I had no intention of replying to the letter you published from Caroline A. Lee in your Aug. 26 edition until I read the paragraph that mentioned State Sen. Frank Padavan. It was so off-base that I felt compelled to contact you. First of all, Sen. Padavan is not the founder of the Farm Museum – that would be James A. Trent. Mr. Trent has been the President of the Colonial Farmhouse Restoration Society of Bellerose, Inc., the nonprofit corporation that operates the Queens County Farm Museum, since 1975. Secondly, Lee is also under the misconception that Padavan has the authority to dictate policy and procedure at the Farm Museum. That is completely incorrect; our mission statement and Board of Directors guide all aspects of the Farm’s operation which encompasses all areas of agriculture, including raising crops and livestock as food. Ms. Lee is obviously choosing to ignore the fact that Senator Padavan has writ-

ten more animal welfare legislation than any other Senator in Albany. Based on Ms. Lee’s complaints, Sen. Padavan has diligently followed a thorough investigation of the Farm Museum by Animal Welfare Approved, the ASPCA, and the State Dept. of Environmental Conservation. We did have one violation issued by the Department of Environmental Conservation for culling two female mallards. We did require a special permit from the Department of Environmental Conservation for the removal of the mallards, which we did not obtain. The Farm Museum is a working sustainable farm – not an animal sanctuary. We have sold chickens as food for over 20 years; we now sell pork as well. It is a common practice on sustainable farms where worker salaries are low and benefits don’t exist, to permit field staff to take home produce, including meat. Our livestock is managed by a qualified, dedicated staff; culling, rehoming, and slaughter for food is overseen by our livestock staff that makes decisions to the benefit of the entire farm as a whole, its health,

biodiversity, and balance. We are proud to have the large audience we serve be able to meet their farmer and see where and how their food is raised. All farm dinners include the bounty of the farm; our next field dinner will feature our farm pork. Amy Fischetti-Boncardo, Executive Director Queens County Farm Museum

On The Mosque Controversy To The Editor: Nine years after the attack on the World Trade Center, murdering almost 3,000 people, we are faced with a new 9/11-related controversy, whether a huge mosque and “cultural center” should be built close to the WTC site. On the other side, there are those who say “Absolutely, Yes!,” citing our historic “Freedom Of Religion,” while others say “Certainly Not!” (and want it moved away – or never built at all, in respect for the families of those innocent people victimized by the terrorism of 20 Muslim fanatics.) There is a case to be made for both points-of-view, but I believe both the proponents and opponents of the mosque have ignored the basic issue, which is future safety of New Yorkers, if it is built! Just as the present construction of the “Freedom Tower” is just stupid, only a short distance from West Street, (where a terrorist and/ or lunatic could blow up a truck full of explosives, or steal a plane to crash into the future tower), building the mosque will be a “red flag” to all sorts of crazies wanting “revenge” for 9/11 or some future tragedy or attack somewhere. We should allow nothing to make New York City even more dangerous to those who live/work here. Since one of the two lots the mosque sponsors want to use is reportedly under city control, Mayor Bloomberg should “Just Say NO” and make New York City residents and workers a little more safe in the years to come, instead of gambling with thousands of lives. Instead of the dangerously divisive and provocative mosque, two blocks from Ground Zero, I suggest the site might be the location of a dignified cemetery for the ashes of the 1,000-plus never-identified World Trade Center Christian, Jewish, Muslim and other victims that Bloomberg has allowed to remain in the Staten Island garbage dump, where family visiting and reflection is a near impossibility.

Islam Has Rights Too To The Editor: The last sentence in John Amato’s recent letter, “No To Mosque” is not only an affront to 700,000 Muslim New Yorkers, it is an atrocious remark coming from a teacher. When Mr. Amato returns to his classes, he will be facing a “Rainbow of Colors.” Many of those students may come from Muslim families who are loyal Americans. I’m sure in their hearts, they will have little respect for him. For Amato to say, “Go build your mosque somewhere else - outside America,” he is really saying the 1,900 mosques throughout the country should also go outside America! The 19 Muslim hijackers were part of a very small fraction of the 1.2 billion Muslims living in the Islamic world. John, in one stroke of the pen, you condemned them all. As you correctly stated, the Pentagon, along with Twin Towers, were attacked by these terrorists. Yet, the Pentagon has a meditation room for three religious faiths: Christians, Jews and Muslims. Are you going to call for the removal of the Islamic faith, thus requiring Muslim American military personnel to worship at a mosque “outside America?” Mr. Amato, you got yourself, like many other Americans, caught up in the Fox News-Republican campaign strategy to discredit President Barack Obama. Their tactic is to spread a wave of Islamophobic fear across America, hoping that the voters in November will turn Congress over to the Republicans. John, remember that this tactic is led by four “wacky-loonies” – Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh. If you notice, two GOP New Yorkers, Peter King and Rudi Giuliani, agreed that the Islamic Center should be built in New York City, just not on Park 51. Please, John, take a little advice from one who taught social studies for 35 years. Look at yourself in the mirror, and ask… “Do I really believe in my heart what I wrote, to be my honest opinion”? Anthony G. Pilla, Forest Hills

Not Buying It To The Editor: I just received a propaganda circular in the mail from U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner. It had pictures of him talking to senior citizens, feeding them lies. He doesn’t tell them he voted for Obama’s health plan and that he did not read the plan before voting. He doesn’t tell them that there will be cuts in their Medi-

care and that their supplement insurance premiums will likely go up. He also does not mention that he would like a government paid insurance for them, a plan similar to Canada’s, but not for him. He knows that there will not be an increase in the social security checks. But, of course, he says he hopes there will be a change and some sort of agreement can be reached. I watched this man argue that it was the Republicans that turned down the aid for the 9/11 Responders. It was the Democrats that played their dirty tricks of trying to make the Republicans look like heels and their party look like they had compassion for the Responders. The Democrats control the House and could have passed the measure by a majority vote. Why did they not do it? This is an election year for some of them and the polls show they may lose some Congressmen, so time to pull out the dirty tricks and try and save some seats. What have any of our New York politicians done for us? If you guessed more taxes, you are right. Our politicians follow the leader like mice following the Piper. They know that New York Democrats will not pull the lever that has anything other than Democrat on it. So whatever they do or say they will not lose their seat. It proves that we New Yorkers are not the sharpest knives in the drawer and we should not expect anything better than what we got. I know that you might think that I don’t trust any politician. I don’t trust them. They lie and say what they think we might like to hear just to get elected. Once in office they forget what they promised and become a team player. Whatever the team wants, either Democrat or Republican, left or right, will get their vote. God Bless America... OOPS! I hope you can still print that because American really needs his help.

After All These Years: Another Term Limits Column By MICHAEL SCHENKLER I’m with Henry Stern.

an impeccable reputation. However, he has fallen victim to politics, misjudgment or worse by allowing the Commission to offer only a 2021 date for enactment. The Commission could have allowed the people to vote on the date or could have made it 2013 which is what we believe the people would have selected. This writer is not a Charter Revision expert or Constitutional scholar, but believes the Commission still can right this terrible wrong. Considering members of the Commission didn’t vote on the proposal, there is no reason it can’t reconvene and revote. There is still plenty of time to print the November ballot and educate the public as to its options. By the end of Election Day this year, the people w il l have voted three times for a two-term limit. It seems that any fair Commission would not make them wait three Council elections for their law to be enacted. The term limit fiasco has been an ugly period in the Democratic

history of our city. The Commission finally has the ability to bring it to an end. They must not let the dark period linger until 2021. I’m with Henry and wer’re both with the people.

November, t he Commission has arrogated to itself the power to frustrate that decision for 11 years. The proposal was offered to allow the public to decide the effective date of the two-term limit, whether at once (2013), 2017 or 2021. This idea was ignored; how can the people be trusted to make a decision of such magnitude? Don’t the mayoral appointees on the Commission know what is best for the masses? The individual members of the Commission are, by and large, reasonably intelligent, not particularly politically sophisticated, and honorable New Yorkers. The chair is a distinguished public servant. How could all these bright people have gone so wrong? Look at Vietnam and numerous situations since then when our country has made decisions which turned out to be wrong. But those important issues had two sides and complicated facts. In this case, the facts are clear and the argument completely one-sided. The bottom line here is that some people wanted to take care of some other people they know. And they were able to convince enough naive colleagues so that they could do it. The remedy here is relatively simple: another referendum, with an effective date written into it so no Commission can substitute its wishes for the voters’ decision by fiddling with implementation and postponing a simple reform for over a decade. The unanswered que st ion is who will bell the cat? Who will step forward and take the initiative to see that the will of the

people is implemented, whatever it may be. Now is the time to begin consideration of that question. It has been attributed to Edmund Burke in 1795. No one, however, really knows who said it first: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good [people] to do nothing.” To those of you who think, what difference does this make, two terms or t hree, you have a point. The issue, however, is not two or three terms. The issue is fairness; first the Mayor and Council circumvent ing the Char ter in 2008 for their own benefit, and now the Commission trying to circumvent the referendum of 2010, whether they know it or not. Americans, and New Yorkers

are Americans, like to play fair, and don’t like to be disregarded or manipulated. That is what underlies this controversy. It is the same nagging issue that sharply reduced the majority the competent mayor should have received after two successful terms. Our recommendation: respect the will of the people. “Justice Delayed is Justice Denied.” Britain’s Prime Minister Gladstone said it in 1868 addressing Parliament as Queen Victoria’s prime minister. The City of New York should not provide golden parachutes. Not in dollars, not in years. Let the new elected officials take their places, and may they serve the public, not themselves.

My friend, colleague, and city elder who shares this page with me has been most vocal about the injustice that has been done by the Char ter Rev ision Commission which did its job and will put on the ballot the opportunity for the people to once again affirm that they favor a two-term limit for City Councilmembers, Borough Presidents and Citywide Officials. When the Mayor had the Council usurp the people’s authorit y and change the people’s law from two to three terms, he promised to make fixing it a priority of

a Charter Revision Commission – and he did. And the Commission did part of its job approving a referendum allowing the people to restore the two-term limit – this time prohibiting Councilmembers from extending their own terms. However, and Henr y deals with it in some depth below, the new law, if passed, does not go into effect until 2021. The Charter Revision Commission had the opportunity to make the effective date the next Council election, 2013. They instead chose to grant t wo clase s of i ncumbent Councilmem-bers a bye on a law the people have voted for twice and are likely to enact again this November. The law was first passed by a referendum of the people in 1993 and now if passed for the third time, it will finally be in place permanently – or until changed by referendum or revolution – in 2021, an entire generation later. I just don’t get it. CUN Y Chancellor Mat t Goldstein, t he Commission chair, is a man with

Bodybuilder Seeks Another Trophy will compete for his 13th trophy at the 2010 INBF New York State Bodybuilding And Figure Championship in Poughkeepsie. Messina said the INBF focuses on natural bodybuilding and has strict provisions on the use of performance enhancing drugs. "Before the competition, you have to take a lie detector test, but a lot of people are able to outsmart it," Messina said. "So after the competition, the winner must also need to take a blood test." Messina said he competed in the heavyweight division, having weighed in only two pounds over the limit for middleweight, and defeated other competitors bigger than him. He described his diet as one rich in brown rice, chicken, salmon, egg whites, baked potatoes, and plenty of fruits and vegetables. Outside of his competitions, Messina's life is taking another turn. Last year he was laid off

In five years, John Messina has won a dozen trophies in tri-state bodybuilding competitions. This fall, he's going for the baker's dozen. Messina, 51, who lives in Howard Beach and works out at Gold's Gym on Cross Bay Boulevard, got his start as a martial artist. He worked as a bouncer at a bar in Suffolk County where he said he was "the smallest guy" among the bouncers. There he met a bodybuilder friend and the two decided to teach each other their skills. Later, as he began weight training, he became Sergeant-in-Arms for the Teamsters, where he was on the protection detail for people like former Sen. Hillary Clinton and former Gov. George Pataki. In 2005, Messina became a competitive bodybuilder, contending in the International Natural Bodybuilder & Fitness competitions around the New York area. In October, he

from his construction job as the economy fell into recession. Messina used his unemployment as an optimal time to go back to school and get the certifications needed to become a master trainer. Now with all his certificates, he is looking to open his own studio in Howard Beach to help others get in shape, which he hopes to get up and running very soon. He

credited his persistence and hard work for getting him to where he is. "I don't quit," he said. "Nothing stands in my way." Reach Reporter Domenick Rafter at drafter@queenstribune.com or (718) 3577400, Ext. 125. — Domenick Rafter

FD Vols To Get New Home The Broad Channel Volunteer Fire Department and Ambulance Corps can finally proceed with constructing their own building after 15 years of waiting, thanks to a change in the state's public authorities law. State Sen. Shirley Huntley (D-Jamaica), who represents Broad Channel, said the amendment was enacted to allow the Dormitory Authority of New York the authorization to provide construction-related resources and services to the 105-year-old not-for-profit organization in construction of their new building, and end a decade and a half of roadblocks. "These civic leaders should not have to be negatively affected by small unsubstantial setbacks that would further negate the good work that these volunteers achieve daily," Huntley said. "I'm proud to say with the passing of this legislation that these issues will no longer be applicable."

The amendment was sponsored by Huntley and co-sponsored in the Assembly by Assemblywoman Audrey Pheffer (D-Rockaway Beach). The Corps bought a piece of property near Cross Bay Boulevard in 1995 with the intention of building a new headquarters to replace their current home on Noel Road, where they've been based since 1908. No start date for the project has been set. Federal money was allocated for the project in 2006, but in order for the Corps to receive the funding, the NYCDOT had to approve the project as mandated by federal law, but they did not, claiming the project was unnecessary and the city did not have matching funds to contribute to the project.

Armenian Festival On Sunday Sept. 12, Oceania Street in Bayside will once again be transformed into an amazing street festival – complete with wonderful ethnic food, entertainment, vendors and games/rides for the children. Hosted by the Armenian Church of the Holy Martyrs, this annual “picnic” has blossomed into a “must-see” street extravaganza over the past decade. With thousands in attendance, from noon to dusk, the street will be filled with lively music, friendly chatter, and the smiles of children and adults reminiscing about the summer gone by. Held on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, the festival will open with the traditional procession of the Cross onto the church plaza and down to Oceania Street, as the clergy and choir bless the “four corners of the earth.” The festivities will then begin with all-day entertainment by Varoujan Vartanian and his band, performances from the Holy Martyrs Aradzani and Hye Bar Dance Groups, the Greek American Folk Dance Society, the Mexican Folk Dance Group, Kristy and Julie Asriyan from the Vanush Khanamiryan Dance Academy of New York and some special surprises. As always, the ever-popular children’s rides will be bustling at the end of Oceania Street with slides, a rockwall, clubhouse, cotton candy, ice cream, a wine bottle toss, and much more – all for a reasonable price. For the shoppers in the crowd there will be books, music and other Armenian novelties and gifts available for purchase at the Holy Martyrs Book-tique, an array of items to peruse at our extremely popular Attic Treasures booth, many street vendors covering the block displaying their wares, and, of course, delicious middle eastern food – appetizers, assorted kebabs, mouth-watering desserts, coffee, tea and other beverages. No festival would be complete without raffles. Thousands of dollars will be raffled off in our annual Grand Raffle, as well as many smaller prizes in our mini-raffle. Tickets may be purchased at the festival or ahead of time by contacting the church office at (718) 2250235. Join the Holy Martyrs and local Bayside community for this annual fête. Do not miss the chance to spend a lovely afternoon outdoors with your friends and family members. Admission to the festival is free and there will be plenty of indoor and outdoor (open-air and covered) seating for all. Many thanks to the local sponsors and friends who have helped make this event a huge success year after year. Join the crowds for delicious Armenian fare and a cold drink, music, entertainment, shopping and fellowship. Be a part of the community and walk down festive Oceania Street on Sunday Sept. 12. For individuals who are interested in vendor opportunities or further information, please contact the church office at (718) 2250235.

Extreme Makeover Straight out of the idea behind the hit show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” shabby homeowners are encouraged to be extra nice to their friends: a compelling letter from one of them to Major Homes might nominate a lucky family into overhauled digs. Major Homes President Mitchell Kersch said his charitable bona fides include $7,000 in free siding to the family of a guitarist who had lost three and a half fingers and the donation of a kitchen to a family with three children suffering from cystic fibrosis. Kersch, the third of a four-generation family dynasty, said said there’s no catch and that the business is often charitable with their services, though there is one caveat. The contest has no eligibility requirements. It doesn’t even have an official name. “All they need to do is send a letter,” said Kersch. “There’s no cost. No obligation. It is not a gimmick.” They won’t even enter information from entries into a sales database, he said. To nominate someone for free windows, roofing or siding, write a letter explaining their circumstances. Include both your information and your nominee’s information, including: name, phone number, address, and email if you have one. Send letters to Major Homes, 48-52 Clearview Expy., Bayside, NY 11364, attention Mitch Kersch.

9/11 Memorial At QC By JOSEPH OROV IC Stabbing two chopsticks into a bowl of rice can serve as utensil-storage to some – but it is taboo in Far East cultures, where the maneuver symbolizes an end to one’s consumption. To put it shortly: death. Now take the metaphor a step further, and replace the chopsticks with the World Trade Center and you have Chee Wang Ng’s “Sept. 11th Memorial Installation.” To western eyes, the two gleaming white towers poking out of a bowl of rice may seem a bit arcane, if not kooky. But Ng said it registers immediately with anyone from Eastern cultures. “In terms of identity, it’s appropriate for the Asians because we know it,” he said. “It’s such a vernacular thing. They don’t even talk about it – they know. That’s how strong this thing is.”

The work was inspired by the months following 9/11, when Wang refused to look south towards where the towers used to raise high into the city skyline. “After 9/11, as a New Yorker, you see overwhelming patriotism everywhere,” he said. “I realized that there’s no particular thing that’s Asian. I decided I have to do it, to show that we are part of the fabric too.” The Malaysia native and Woodside resident said his artwork often explores the dichotomy of the Asian Diaspora life, juxtaposing cultural norms against western habits to create a jarring effect. Ng’s installation will be on display at Queens College’s Godwin-Ternbach Museum from Sept. 4 to Sept. 15. Reach Reporter Joseph Orovic at jorovic@queenstribune.com or (718) 3577400, Ext. 127.:

Weprin: Sprinklers Policy H2-Oh No “I’ve seen it running at midnight,” Weprin said. The 665 sprinklers use 850 million gallons of water during the months of July and August, he said. Although the City does not pay for water, the cost is born by taxpayers. Larger systems reuse water, but because runoff can be contaminated from small children wearing diapers, that requires too much infrastructure for a small spray shower, said Net te Compton, senior project manager for design for Parks. Newer sprinklers use low flow heads and feature an on/off switch that children can operate. “It makes sense to view water as a resource rather than a waste product,” she said.

Tennis For All:

U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-Kew Gardens), along w i t h S t a t e S e n . To b y Stavisk y (D-Flushing) and Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz (D-Forest Hills), l. and r., recently requested the Landmarks Preservation Commission study the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium in order to decide whether it merits designation as landmark. On Tuesday, Weiner asked the United States Tennis Association to consider hosting at least one match of its flagship tournament, the U.S. Open, at the West Side Tennis Club. The Club is currently mulling a potential redevelopment of the historic stadium into a condominium.

In what is possibly a New York City exclusive, the sprinkler at Printer’s Park in the Bronx uses a natural filtration system to irrigate landscaping. It is an elegant solution, because plants need more water at precisely the time that children tend to use the spray showers most—during hot weather, Compton said. Parks is working with the Dept. of Health and Dept. of Environmental Protection to ensure that captured water is adequately filtered. “It’s the direction that [Parks] wants to go in,” Compton said. Reach Reporter Jessica Ablamsky at jablamsky@queenstribune.com or (718) 357-7400, Ext. 124.

By JESSICA ABLAMSKY On a blustery August morning that felt more like fall than summer, the sprinkler at Cunningham Park was running all day, pouring fourth an e st imated 20 to 25 gallons of water per minute—whether or not children frolicked in the spray. That is a problem, according to Councilman Mark Weprin (D-Oakland Gardens), who is introducing legislation that would mandate all sprinklers in the Cit y be retrofit ted with a mechanism that would allow park goers to turn the water on for a preset period of time, and would shut it off automatically. Parks Dept. policy requires the sprinklers run all day whenever the temperature is higher than 80 degrees.

Councilman Mark Weprin says the Parks Dept. needs to do a better job of managing water use by park sprinklers all across the Cit y.

By DOMENICK RAFTER The spiritual leaders of the Sikh religion came to Richmond Hill from India last week to lend their support for an ongoing campaign to bring to justice those they claim are responsible for a massacre of Sikhs in India 26 years ago. High Priests Giani Gurbachan Singh and Giani Iqbal Singh were greeted by Sikhs from Queens and around the country at the Royal India Palace on Atlantic Avenue in Richmond Hill on Aug 29. The two leaders gave their support to Sikhs For Justice, a group focused on seeking justice against some prominent Indian politicians who were involved in the November 1984 massacre of Sikhs in India. “We have come to say we support this justice campaign,” said Giani Gurbachan Singh, who was personally affected by the massacre. “I want to tell all Sikhs and all Americans, ‘Stand for justice, always.’” More than 30,000 Sikhs were killed in a three-day span from Nov. 1-3, 1984 in countrywide violence that erupted after two Sikh bodyguards assassinated then-Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, said Jackson Heights attorney Gurpatwant Pannun, legal advisor for Sikhs for Justice. The Indian government has said the death toll was much lower. Pannun said the Indian government had only paid Sikhs looking for justice lip service over the years. “Every other year, the Indian government sets up commissions or committees with no power except to investigate,” Pannun said. “And every other year the committees are disbanded with no one charged.” The last committee, set up in 2000, was disbanded in 2005, after which, with no faith in the Indian Government’s ability or desire to

After the country’s 2006 elections, the Indian National Congress party, whom Sikhs finger for the 1984 massacres, won a majority in the Lok Sabha, India’s parliament, and named a Sikh, Dr. Manmohan Singh, party leader and prime minister. Singh’s government has done little to further investigations into the 1984 massacres. One of the people Sikhs for Justice is looking to bring to trial is Kamal Nath, who is still a member of the Lok Sabha and

currently serves in Singh’s cabinet as Minister of Roadways. Recently, the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom sought visas to enter India to investigate oppression of Sikhs and get information on the 1984 massacres, but the Indian Government denied them entry. Pannun said the strategic economic and military alliance between India and the United States has made it difficult for the U.S. to pressure India. “India is an important ally of the United

States,” Pannun said, noting that India’s position near China, Afghanistan and Pakistan highlights the danger of strained relations between Washington and New Delhi. “That complicates things,” he added. Nevertheless, the USCIF has placed India on its “watch list,” meaning the commission has some concerns over religious freedom in the country. Canada’s Parliament is debating a measure that would recognize the massacre as genocide, a move that could hurt the country’s relations with India. The event included some survivors of the massacres, like Jaspir Singh, a plaintiff in the case filed against Nath. Jaspir Singh, who now lives in California, saw 26 members of his family slaughtered in Delhi during the massacres. He survived by disguising himself as a Hindu. “Until I die, I will continue to fight within the laws for justice,” Singh said, fighting back tears. Two Queens politicians, Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras (D-East Elmhurst) and Assemblyman David Weprin (D-Little Neck) were also present to lend their support. “When you see such a horrible event, you have to take a stand,” Ferreras said. “I want the Sikh community to know I stand with them.” She said the movement interested her especially because of her role as Chair of the Women Issues committee. “Women were widowed, beaten and raped,” she said. “And few people know about it.” Reach Reporter Domenick Rafter at drafter@queenstribune.com or (718) 3577400 Ext. 125.

Remembering Tom:

Community Mourns White’s Passing co-founder and executive director of J-CAP, a drug and alcohol treatment program in Queens. “Born and raised in Queens, Tom spent over 30 years trying to improve his Southeast Queens comm unity,” said Mayor Mike Bloomberg. For more than 40 years he stood at the helm of J-CAP, carrying out the organization’s mission “of helping people help themselves.” “His lifelong mission was the promotion of individual self empowerment and higher education,” a statement from J-CAP read. “Emphasizing the importance of reconnecting with family and community, he inspired tens of thousands of individuals in recovery. His commitment to the treatment of addictions in the Southeast Queens community and beyond will live on through the programs he created and the people he helped.” Gladys Sullivan, J-CAP’s director of public affairs, said White was “wonderful” to work with. “He demanded the best from you in a good way,” she said. Gzifa said J-CAP faired “very Councilman Tom White Jr., who served the 28th Council District for a well” under White and members of combined 15 years, passed away on Friday. the community and their children benefited from the organization’s programs. Gzifa said she knew White was ill, but did not grasp “As Executive Director of one of the largest sub- the extent of his sickness. stance abuse programs in the state, he cared for New “I didn’t know he was that close to dying until the Yorkers who have often been marginalized, forgotten day before his death,” Gzifa said. and incarcerated from an early age,” Quinn said. “He Asked what she would remember about the coungave them hope, a shot at redemption, and a chance cilman, Gzifa remarked with a smile in her voice, to build a better life.” “Those eyes, ah those eyes.”

White’s leadership and activism earned recognition from leaders of all stripes, including Rev. Al Sharpton. and I have lost a dear friend.” White is survived by his mother, two children and two grandchildren. His services were held at The Greater Allen A.M.E. on Thursday at 10 a.m. As chair of the Council’s Economic Development Committee, White was praised for his prowess in bringing home funds to Queens and his district. Smith said White’s support of women and minority-owned businesses, along with the revitalization of economically distressed areas, have created “countless jobs and helped families struggling to get by put food on their tables and pay their bills.” “He searched for ways to break the cycle of poverty and violence,” said Council Speaker Christine Quinn (D-Manhattan). “He fought for job training and placement programs, and investments in long-term economic growth. He had a particular soft spot for women and minority business owners, pushing for additional resources to help them stay afloat and create good jobs for their neighbors.” Councilman Leroy Comrie (D-St. Albans) said White championed and secured funds for seniors, educational, social services, youth programs and economic development projects, all while encouraging beneficial zoning changes. “His tenure as chair of the Council’s Economic Development Committee was marked by his unrelenting pressure on the City to ensure that minority and womenowned businesses received their fair share of contracts,” he said. “Council Member Thomas White was a quiet leader and community servant who will be missed tremendously. I mourn his passing and will miss my friend.” White’s colleagues in government dubbed him an activist and friend who served Southeast Queens in more than just a City Council capacity. White was the

White’s passing could create a political scramble to fill his vacant seat and represent a district which includes Downtown Jamaica, Rochdale Village, South Jamaica, Richmond Hill, South Ozone Park and a few blocks in Ozone Park. Bloomberg called a special election for the seat coinciding with the Nov. 2 general elections. The election would be nonpartisan, but it is expected whoever succeeds White would be a Democrat. The winner would serve until Dec. 31, 2011. A regularly scheduled primary and general election would occur in September and November 2011 respectively to elect a candidate to ser ve the remainder of White’s Ruben Wills term until Dec. 31, 2013. Potential candidates for the seat include some of White’s opponents in the 2009 Democratic primary. Lynn Nunes, who is currently locked in a battle against State Sen. Shirley Huntley (D-Jamaica), has not indicated any interested for running in the special election, saying he was only focused on his current race. Nunes came within six votes of knocking off White last Allan Jennings September. He mourned the passing of his former opponent. “Although Tom and I were sometimes on opposite sides of a campaign, I always admired his dedication and commitment to our community,” Nunes said in a statement, “Tom was a valued leader in our community.” Ruben Wills, who finished third in the primary behind White and Nunes and served as Huntley’s chief of staff, is another potential candidate. He made an attempt to run for Congress against U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-Jamaica) in 2008, but was kicked off

the ballot before the primary. Another potential candidate is Allan Jennings, who represented the district from 2001 until 2005, when White defeated him in the Democratic primary after Jennings was tainted by scandals. Jennings was censured for allegedly sexually harassing a staffer and had a history of erratic behavior. A fourth potential candidate is Ozone Park attorney Al Baldeo, who is currently running for district leader in the 38th Assembly District. Baldeo narrowly lost a 2006 State Senate race to former State Sen. Serphin Maltese, a race won two years later by State Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr. (D-Howard Lynn Nunes Beach). Baldeo ran third in the 2005 race for the 28th Council seat behind White and Jennings. Gzifa, chairwoman of Community Board 12, which includes most of White’s district, called for a quick special election to fill the vacant seat. “They need to hold a special election as soon as possible,” Gzifa said. She did not endorse any potential candidate, but noted Albert Baldeo that White’s death hurt the district politically because a new councilmember would start at the ground level. White, who had been in office for some time, had earned his stripes and chaired the Economic Development Committee, which she said helped the district immensely. “There’s a lot of clout in that,” she said. “That’s going to hurt us.” Reach Reporter Sasha Austrie at saustrie@queenstribune.com or (718) 357-7400, Ext. 123.

By SASHA AUSTRIE and DOMENICK RAFTER Councilman Tom White Jr. (D-South Ozone Park) died on Friday morning at North Shore LIJ Hospital at the age of 71, after a long battle with lung cancer. “He did very well representing his community,” said Adjoa Gzifa, Community Board 12’s chairwoman. “He was very much a person who cared about his constituents.” White served a combined 15-year tenure in the City Council, beginning with a 10-year stint in the 1990s. After being term limited out in 2001, he regained the 28th District’s Councilmanic seat in 2005. “Today, Southeast Queens lost an iconic advocate, and I lost a dear friend,” said State Sen. Malcolm Smith (D-St. Albans). “City Councilman Thomas White Jr. served his community with great pride and distinction for over three decades, fighting to keep our streets safe and drug free, and improve the quality of life for seniors, children, and small business owners.” Councilman James Sanders (D-Laurelton) said that White was an “inspiration” to both his colleagues and constituents. “Tom served his community, his constituency and his City with pride and distinction, and his voice will be sorely missed in City Hall,” Sanders said. “New York City has lost a great public servant; working people have lost a tireless champion and fearless advocate;

Leisure

Voelker-Orth Perfect Bard Backdrop By BARBARA ARNSTEIN Shakespeare in summer is always a joy, and it was a great pleasure to see one of his most popular comedie s, “Taming of the Shrew,” per formed in the garden of the Voelker-Or th Museum in Flush ing on the evening of Aug. 26. The museum, a restored Flushing home, has gingerbread-house beauty. Its garden includes a large trellis dripping with big bunches of plump purple grapes, and there are beautiful blossoms blooming ever y where. In this idyllic set t ing, amid dart ing dragonflies, The Hip to Hip Theatre Company expertly enacted the comedy concerning two ver y different sister s: t he meek Bianca (Quinlan Pozner), indulged by her father, but prevented by custom from mar r yi ng before her older sister does; and the jealous Katharine (Joy Marr), always too angr y to attract any suitors. The stor y begins w ith t he ar rival of Lucentio (Erick Gonzalez), who vows to marry Bianca at first sight, and Petruchio (Jason Marr), determined to marry Katharine as soon as he hears of her (for her money). As Petr uchio strives to keep Katharine off-balance with aggravating antics, Lucentio trades places with his servant Tranio (Justin Sease) to achieve his aim, while dealing with Bianca’s other suitors, Hortensio (Tom Bateman) and Gremio (Daren Kelly). The action includes

Another contemporar y cha nge: Petruch io’s household servant s are female rather than male. A welcome touch: the Shakespearean sonnets recited before the play.

hilarious verbal duels, merry misunderstandings and general clever clowning. Per for mance s of “Shrew” on stage and s c re e n h ave to o o fte n p o r t r ayed Petr u c h io’s treatment of Kat har i ne as purely sadistic and yet innately funny, reflecting the simple-minded idea that watching one person abusing another is amusing. Happily, this was a “Shrew” for 2010: the audience was clearly shown, thanks to Joy Mar r’s sarcast ic emphasis of cer tain li ne s, t hat de spit e Petr uch io’s madcap cour t ship, Kat har ine retai ns her self-respect by humoring him (like the child he is inside) until his shenanigans cease and their real relationship begins, based on love, and not money. Jason and Joy Marr brought to their roles the rapport they share in their real-life marriage, and expertise from their extensive acting backgrounds. Justin Sease’s comic transformation from an obedient servant to an absurdly self-confident nobleman was a masterpiece of comedy. Erick Gonzalez’s Lucentio was nicely romantic. He handled especially well the scene in which Lucentio must alternately woo Bianca and recite Latin phrases out loud to soothe the suspicions of a rival in the room. Aaron Rossini (who greatly resembles Hamish Linklater on “The New Adventures of Old Christine”) was consistently hilarious as the silly, frantic servant Biondello. Kudos to the director, Elizabeth Carlson.

Artistic Interns Offered Space Of Their Own By DOMENICK RAFTER Deep in the heart of i ndustrial Long Island City, where taxi drivers rest during their breaks and the clanging sounds of workers in auto body shops echo through the streets, there is a place on the corner of 41st Avenue ad 27th Street, hidden from the gritt y surroundings, where Nor thwe st Queens’ thriving art s scene has one of its ma ny hidden homes. Since Aug. 6, The Space has been showing off works of ar t by their seven summer interns in its Fardom Galler y at 25-17 41st Ave. T he show, which runs through Sept. 24, is one of many the gallery hosts for new and emerging art ists in the neighborhood. The two-room galler y, which sit s adjacent to an auto body shop, not only serves as a mini-museum, but also as workspace for the aspiring ar tists. The Space hosts another workspace in the neighborhood at 46th Road and 5th Street, behind the famed PepsiCola sign on the East River. The Space is the brainchild of Long Island City resident Kristi Schopper. An Arizona native, Schopper was living in Manhattan when she moved to Long Island City in the late 1990s in search of a new place for artists. “It was between DUMBO and Long Island City,” Schopper said. She chose to come to Queens because Brooklyn’s DUMBO was already under gentrification; Long Island City held more promise. “I was hoping to be a par t of the up and

coming neighborhood,” she said. Thanks to financial help from the MathisPfohl Foundat ion and Ar thur Levine Foundation, The Space was able to open its Fardom Galler y on 41st Avenue. Schopper said the locat ion was smart because it was equidistant between two popular local places for art lovers; PS 1 in Long Island Cit y and the Museum of Modern Ar t’s Sunnyside location, where MoMA lived while its Manhattan home was under renovation. The gallery hosts multiple shows a year. For the summer interns at The Space, the experience is more than just showing off their work, they get experience on how to run a gallery. Intern Elena Solli said the experience taught her a lot she didn’t already know about the art world. “I had no idea how a galler y works before I star ted interning,” she said. Schopper, who will have her own show at Fardom in October, said the experience has yielded a lot of positive results for interns. “We have yet to see an ar tist not get the residency they wanted or get into the school they wanted to go to,” she said. The show has been a success as well. Seven paintings have already been sold. The current show runs through Sept. 24 and galler y hour s are Wedne sday through Friday, 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Reach Reporter Domenick Rafter at drafter@queenstribune.com or (718) 3577400, Ext. 125.

SOURCES OF INFORMATION AND ASSISTANCE The state encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure.

FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS Be careful of people who approach you with offers to “save” your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner’s distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services. § 1303 NOTICE NOTICE YOU ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING YOUR HOME If you do not respond to this summons and complaint by serving a copy of the answer on the attorney for the mortgage company who filed this foreclosure proceeding against you and filing the answer with the court, a default judgment may be entered and you can lose your home. Speak to an attorney or go to the court where your case is pending for further information on how to answer the summons and protect your property. Sending a payment to your mortgage company will not stop this foreclosure action. YOU MUST RESPOND BY SERVING A COPY OF THE ANSWER ON THE ATTORNEY FOR THE PLAINTIFF (MORTGAGE COMPANY) AND FILING THE ANSWER WITH THE COURT. DATED: August 12, 2010 Steven J. Baum, P.C., Attorney(s) For Plaintiff(s), 220 Northpointe Parkway Suite G, Amherst, NY 14228 The law firm of Steven J.

To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by the New York State Banking Department at 1-877BANK-NYS (1-877-226-5697) or visit the department’s website at WWW.BANKING.STATE.NY.US. FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS Be careful of people who approach you with offers to “save” your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner’s distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services. § 1303 NOTICE NOTICE YOU ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING YOUR HOME If you do not respond to this summons and complaint by serving a copy of the answer on the attorney for the mortgage company who filed this foreclosure proceeding

against you and filing the answer with the court, a default judgment may be entered and you can lose your home. Speak to an attorney or go to the court where your case is pending for further information on how to answer the summons and protect your property. Sending a payment to your mortgage company will not stop this foreclosure action. YOU MUST RESPOND BY SERVING A COPY OF THE ANSWER ON THE ATTORNEY FOR THE PLAINTIFF (MORTGAGE COMPANY) AND FILING THE ANSWER WITH THE COURT. DATED: August 11, 2010 Steven J. Baum, P.C., Attorney(s) For Plaintiff(s), 220 Northpointe Parkway Suite G, Amherst, NY 14228 The law firm of Steven J.

LEGAL NOTICE


Queens Focus PEOPLE. . .PEOPLE. . .PEOPLE. . .PEOPLE PEOPLE. . .PEOPLE. . .PEOPLE. . .PEOPLE PEOPLE. . .PEOPLE. . .PEOPLE. . .PEOPLE PEOPLE. . .PEOPLE...PEOPLE..PEOPLE... The administration of The Silvercrest Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation is happy to announce the appointment of Loretta G. McManus, BS, MS, RN as vice president of nursing services. As the top nurse executive, McManus will have the ultimate administrative responsibility for all nursing standards, practice, policies and procedures at Silvercrest. Her expertise extends to patient-focused quality care, program development, clinical operations, regulatory compliance, and accreditation development and preparation. In welcoming the new vice president, Michael Tretola, FACHE, senior vice president and administrator for The Silvercrest Center said, “Ms. McManus is well suited to lead the accomplished Silvercrest nursing staff and to set even higher standards of quality care for the organization. She is an experienced nursing executive with a broad range of clinical and management skills that will fit well with the culture of The Silvercrest Center.” McManus comes to The Silvercrest Center having held nursing leadership positions in Florida, New Hampshire and New York. Recently, she was the Chief Nursing Executive at Elliot Hospital in Manchester, New Hampshire and prior to that she was Vice President of Nursing and Patient Care Ser-

vices for St. Vincent’s Catholic Medical Centers – Queens Division, having responsibility for nursing and patient care services at St. John’s Queens and Mary Immaculate Hospitals. Ms. McManus also has experience in successfully obtaining the prestigious American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Designation which is the gold standard for nursing care practice in hospitals. “Silvercrest is the best hidden secret in New York City healthcare and everyone needs to know its special niche for being integrative and thinking out of the box,” says McManus. “I am very excited to be working with an awesome facility and being part of a great team. I am passionate about nursing and the possibilities here. I see Silvercrest nursing taking on new initiatives and excelling in evidence base practices in conjunction with our close partner New York Hospital Queens and the NewYork Presbyterian Healthcare System. Our biggest challenge will be the severe cutbacks in reimbursement, but this can be a stimulating opportunity for creativity and ingenuity which I believe will come from the Silvercrest staff.” Councilman Mark Weprin visited the summer camp run by the Sports & Arts in Schools Foundation (SASF) at Public School 46, the Alley Pond School, 64-45

SASF participants, with their sports equipment, welcome Mark Weprin, with a sample of their artwork. 218th St., in recognition of the completion of this year’s program. SASF receives funding from the New York City Council to offer highquality summer programming, featuring top sports and arts instructors, at about fifty school locations across the City. The summer camp is open to all children in New York City and is free of charge to the participants. “SASF provides a safe, productive way for children to keep active during the sum-

mer,” said Weprin. “In light of the economic downturn, this program clearly benefits working parents who want their children to keep fit and to interact with their peers while school is closed.” SASF camps are run by trained, licensed site directors who partner with sports, arts, and educational enrichment organizations to offer top-quality instruction in a range of sports and arts areas.

Both Sides Now Aiden Lugo Age: 17 Home: Ridgewood Height: 5’ 1" Weight: 139 lbs Stats: 38-29-34 NYPhotoByNick

Models Of Queens Aiden Lugo started her modeling career behind the camera, always interested in taking pictures. “I got into it when I first started watching my mom,” she said. “During my childhood my mom was obsessed with cameras; that was my motivation to pick up a camera and start taking pictures. I was always more behind than in front.” She decided to step in front of the lens to get a better feel for how to direct a model when snapping photos. She has remained in front ever since. “It’s going really well,” Aiden said. “I did a shoot for Dis Magazine, and after that I met up with Ruby, who was a friend since my sophomore year in high school.

Ruby introduced me to photographer Nick Beneduce, and I’ve been moving along since then.” Though her family has spent time living in Coney Island and Park Slope, Aiden has spent most of her life in Queens, having gone to Springfield High School, though the environment wasn’t working well for her. She transferred to a prep school, which she still attends, and couldn’t be more pleased. “I love that school,” she said. “It pretty much changed my life. I went from being a student who had no one who listened to her to having people who understand me. I’m really happy.” In the future, Aiden sees her-

self going to an arts school, perhaps studying clothing design, or ending up in medical school, where her mother would rather she be. In her spare time, Aiden likes to catch up on sleep and write. “I love to write,” she said. “I’m working on a book; it’s going to be called ‘Dementia.’ It’s about the dreams that I have. I write short stories on my dreams. It’s really hard because the first thing you do when you wake up is try to remember your dreams.” In her free time, Aiden enjoys going to Juniper Valley Park with her friends, or heading to other parks in and around the city. “I just like to see my friends,” she said.

Internet Withdrawal Are you among the millions of Americans suffering from Internet addiction? We’re not exactly sure if there is a true medical condition, but if you’ve ever wished you could right-click on a broken refrigerator to figure out what’s wrong with it, or if your thumbs have grown beefy and muscular from excessive smart-phone Mark Malkoff in his bathroom as his internetabuse, it may be time to free journey began. kick the .com habit. Take a page out of Mark Malkoff’s book. The Astoria comedian locked himself in his bathroom for five days in an effort to kick his online addiction. “In the past I’ve tried to stop using the internet in my daily life and lasted only a few hours. But for this to really work I need a place with zero distractions and temptations. And I have found that very place. It’s located…in my BATHROOM,” he wrote on his blog. The move also presumably spared the world his desperate online cries of agony, as he couldn’t tweet about the experience from his bathtub. While Malkoff’s attempt is admirable, we think he could’ve smartly spent his time in the bathroom Googling less painful ways to kick his addiction.

Take The A Train A lot of strange stuff happens on the subway: panhandlers sing Sinatra tunes, acrobats do somersaults and back flips in between seats, bible-thumping preachers predict Armageddon. Oh, and gay porn. Yes, gay porn. QConf has learned a gay porn scene was filmed last winter on the A train here in Queens. The scene, part of a gay porn movie called “Wall Street” (no, Michael Douglas isn’t in it…neither is Charlie Sheen), shows Brazilian porn star Rafael Alencar riding the A train home from his job, or former job as he gets fired in the previous scene,

when he meets the well-endowed Ben Andrews, who sets foot on the Far Rockaway bound train at Rockaway Blvd. in Ozone Park, clearly very late at night. Within minutes, the two begin, shall we say, “enjoying each other’s company,” even as a homeless man sleeps at the far end of the car. They continue as the train heads over Jamaica Bay toward the Rockaways. With the longest distance between stations, it’s a good place to shoot porn without anyone walking in on you. We hope the crews that clean the train got something extra when they got into this car.

Pre-Festivus Visit Jerry Stiller, who played the infamous aging crank Frank Costanza on “Seinfeld,” took a trip down memory lane on a recent visit to Astoria, where he got a first-time look at the home used for exterior shots of the Costanza house on the sitcom, according to The Huffington Post. “A lot of stuff happened in that house,” Stiller said, of the fictional version. “It was a battleground really, whatever took place in that house. I mean, there was never a peaceful moment.” Hopefully the home’s owners don’t Stiller visited the Costanza home feel the same way.

The Queens Capria family are reality TV bound.

The Reality Of 6

No, not that Wall Street. This one was filmed in part on the A train.

There’s a new Jon and Kate Plus 8 in town. More accurately put, Victor and Digna plus seven. Victor and Digna Capria welcomed America’s first Latino sextuplets 22 months ago. The babies, Justin, Jezreel, Joel, Jaden,

Confidentially, New York . . .

Danelia and Genesis, will make their debut to what is sure to be an adoring public at 10 p.m. on Sept. 14. Don’t give all your love to the little tykes; their brother Victor, 9, is quite adorable. Hopefully this Queens family will keep it together and not turn into that other clan that’s on TLC.

Domestic Fare Queens-based JetBlue, known for its service, headrest TV sets and, perhaps most important of late, its first-bag-free policy, is selling customer snack boxes to help tide them over on longer flights. The boxed meals, available for $6, range from simple noshes to more complex combinations -- The Wake Up box includes a croissant, jam, almond butter, crackers, a fruit cup and chocolate milk. The Beef Up box has salami, crackers, cheddar cheese spread, bagel chips, other cheese and dried apples. Though we’re sure the fare on our borough’s own airline is wonderful, perhaps it should work in a Queens Box, to include some local favorites.
