F

rom Bay Ridge to Brownsville, Uber helps us move around in our communities and in every corner of the five boroughs.

Uber is helping to fill the gaps in transit service, ensuring that no matter where we live in NYC, we can get an affordable, reliable ride within minutes. After all, the City isn’t just midtown Manhattan.

traphangers got an unpleasant surprise during their morning commute on Monday, July 30, when they had to cope with extensive delays thanks to the unexpected closure of the express tracks between the 36th Street and 59th Street stations on the N, R, and D lines, which will be closed for repair until the end of the year. Many riders didn’t know about the closure of the track until they got stuck on a train or waiting for one; at around 11:11 a.m. — well after rush hour — the MTA posted a message on its website stating, “Expect longer wait times and delays on the N Subway, R Subway, and D Subway ebrooklyn media/Photo by Ariama Long lines in Brooklyn while we perform There was an unpleasant surprise in store for commuters along the R, N and D lines who necessary structural repairs in the only learned when they were in transit, Monday morning, that the express tunnel between tunnel — essential work to restore 59th and 36th Streets had been closed until year’s end. reliable service.

Dyker Power Outage Left More Than 800 in the Dark BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK MMCGOLDRICK@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

M

ore than 800 Con Edison customers in the Dyker Heights area were without power, according to the company, on Thursday, July 26. The outage, which began at about 1:13 p.m., spanned from 70th Street through 74th Street, from 11th Avenue through 13th Avenue, and lasted through the afternoon. The outage came less than a month after another of its kind left thousands of Dyker residents without power on Monday, July 9. According to Con Edison, more than 6,000 customers were affected by that outage, for which the company originally gave an estimated restoration time of 4:30 p.m. but deemed under control by just 2:04 p.m. The outage, which broke out around 1 p.m. that day, was eventually blamed on damaged equipment, a preliminary investigation chalking the outage up to a mishap during scheduled work. Dyker Heights is no stranger to electricity outages. The neighborhood has above-ground power lines, making it "really sensitive to weather,” Josephine Beckmann, district manager of Community Board

Group Pushes Dual Language Charter School for Sunset Park BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

T

rying to get Sunset Park to the head of the class. the non-profit organization LEEP (Latino Education Equity Partnership) is currently pushing to bring a dual language public charter school to Sunset Park by fall, 2019. “Public charter schools are making huge differences in local communities and particularly communities of color, where we could have more direct participation of the areas, contended Roberto Gutierrez, a Prospect Heights resident who has lived in Brooklyn since 2005, and who founded LEEP and is its executive director. “We want to create a school where every child is a language learner,” said LEEP Chief Operating Officer Michael Regnier, who was the director of policy and research at the New York City Charter School Center for over five years. “Whether they’re learning English or Spanish for the first time, that creates a unique kind of a community and Sunset Park is a great place to facilitate that. “We know that Sunset needs more seats,” he went on. “There are pretty overcrowded classrooms in schools which has parents very concerned, and we will be opening this school in an independent building. We won’t be trying to fit into an existing school building. We want to alleviate the overcrowding rather than adding to it.” The initial plan is to begin with kindergarten and first grade, expanding eventually to eighth grade. For Gutierrez, learning both Spanish and English is a key goal. “Research shows that kids that learn in multiple languages at the earliest stages of their life actually do much better in reading comprehension. They become better readers and communicators,” he said. “The concern you sometimes hear is that by speaking Spanish, students will be less skilled in English, but what the research is showing is that when you’re immersed in language and thinking in multiple languages, you actually become better at communicating, aware of your own thinking,” added Regnier. “Because of that, really well-run dual language schools across the country create graduates who speak two languages really well

instead of neither language very well.” LEEP has already begun outreach to the community, to find out what its main priorities should be.

“It’s been going really well,” Regnier said. “We’ve enjoyed hearing families’ stories and reactions, and answering questions Sunset residents have. We want to know what families care about most and what they prioritize as a need for a new school in the area.” “Latino families are saying we want our kids to learn English really well but we don’t want them to forget their Spanish or who they are,” added Gutierrez. “We’re trying to make speaking Spanish a matter of pride. What can we do to affirm that, build on that and use it as a way to accelerate learning for kids and also maintain that language over time?” According to Regnier, LEEP -- which will apply for a charter the New York State Board of Regents -- has been working with a real estate broker and identified five possible locations. “Our hope is that the Regents will

vote on a proposal this November which would mean we would be opening the school in August, 2019,” said Regnier, acknowledging however that the process is difficult. “New York has strict requirements for charter schools looking to open and it should,” he went on. “It requires us to think very carefully about every single element in how this school is going to be run because we’re asking to be entrusted with children and tax dollars, and it’s important that we have everything tightly planned and we have a talented team to run the school. It’s a high bar but we’re trying very hard to meet it.” LEEP representatives will appear before Community Board 7 at its Education and Youth Committee meeting on Wednesday, August 8.

No Summer Slump in Bay Ridge State Senate Race BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

T

he dog days of summer are forcing the incumbent and two challengers in the Bay Ridge state Senate race to work doggedly to win over voters. Republican state Sen. Martin Golden and Democrats Ross Barkan and Andrew Gounardes are all busy traveling around the 22nd Senate District, meeting with voters, collecting endorsements and speaking out on issues. Barkan and Gounardes are running against each other in the Democratic Primary on Sept. 13. The winner will be the party’s nominee in the Nov. 6 general election against Golden, a seven-term incumbent looking to win an eighth term. The district Golden has represented since 2002 covers most of Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and Bensonhurst and includes parts of Borough Park, Gravesend, Marine Park and Gerritsen Beach. On July 30, Golden’s campaign touted an endorsement he received from District Council (DC) 37, New York City’s largest public employee union. "Our members live and work within your senate district and they play a vital role in maintaining the quality of life for our city's neighborhoods," DC 37 Political Action Director Jeremy John wrote in the endorsement letter to Golden. "City workers keep New York working, and I'm grateful for their endorsement," Golden said in a statement. "DC 37 members are in health care, mass transit, child care, schools and colleges, infrastructure maintenance, courts, construction, and in agency offices. We depend on them, and I'm proud to be their voice in Albany."  Gounardes, who serves as chief counsel to Borough President Eric Adams, has been endorsed by Bay Ridge Councilmember Justin Brannan, the Working Families Party, 32 BJ SEIU, the Communications Workers of America, NYSUT United and a host of Democratic clubs, including the Lambda Independent Democrats of Brooklyn, and the Stars and Stripes Democratic Club. Barkan, a political journalist, has won the support of the Bay Democrats, the 504 Democratic Club and the Muslim Democratic Club of New York City, as well as former Bay Ridge congressional candidate Michael DeVito and Bushwick state senate candidate Julia

Salazar. Golden, Gounardes and Barkan all spoke out against discrimination in the wake of a shocking verbal assault on a Muslim woman by another woman on an S53 bus on July 11. In response to the incident, Gounardes held a workshop on July 26 to demonstrate how bystanders can help victims of discrimination. During the incident on the S53, which was captured on a video that went viral, the attacker, who identified herself as “Ashley,” taunted the headscarf-wearing victim by telling her that agents from Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) were coming to arrest her. The workshop, which took place at the Cocoa Grinder restaurant in Bay Ridge, was presented by Gounardes in association with the Accompany Project, an initiative of the Arab-American Association of New York. “With dangerous rhetoric coming

from the Trump administration and local elected officials, it’s important that we empower people to stand up to hate in our community,” Gounardes said. “I was touched that so many neighbors chose to spend a beautiful summer evening at Cocoa Grinder for an informative and engaging workshop by the Accompany Project. I look forward to the day when events like this are no longer necessary.” The S53 attack and immigrant rights were also on Barkan’s mind as the senate campaign hit mid-summer. Barkan recently released an immigration rights platform that calls for undocumented immigrant college students to receive the same tuition assistance as in-state residents of New York. He has also called for ICE to be abolished in the wake of a Trump administration policy in which parents crossing the U.S. border illegally are separated from their children. To get his point across, Barkan

served up scoops at an Abolish ICEcream Social at his Bay Ridge campaign headquarters on July 28. “This campaign is all about fighting for those who are under attack right now, especially from the hatred in D.C. It's so important to stand up for our immigrant neighbors,” Barkan wrote on Twitter. At the social, “I spoke about how we have to stand in solidarity with our Bay Ridge neighbors who are under attack,” Barkan wrote. Golden called the attack an “act of religious and ethnic intolerance” and said it was “beyond disturbing to watch and has no place in our society.” The attacker engaged in “completely un-American behavior,” said Golden, who called on the New York City Police Department is investigate the incident. “No one should ever have to endure or fear discrimination as they go about their daily life, simply because of who they are,” Golden said.

Recurring Sinkhole Near Bay Ridge Schoolyard Has Residents Wanting Permanent Fix BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

t’s the hole that won’t go away. After a recurring sinkhole next to the playground at P.S. 264, 88th Street and Fourth Avenue, began reopening again on Monday, July 30, Ridgeites have reiterated their demand that the problem -- which first surfaced late last year -- be fixed for good. “It’s been a reoccurring sinkhole for quite some time,” said District Manager of Community Board 10 Josephine Beckmann, who said the board first heard about the sinkhole on November 30, 2017 and reported it to the city’s Department of Environmental Protection the following day. Since then, she added, DEP has been trying to figure out its cause. “A hole that opens up can be caused by a multitude of reasons. Typically it’s water and once a repair has been made, it doesn’t collapse again. Clearly there’s water that’s undermining the street at this particular location; right now they’re trying to figure out exactly where it’s coming from,” Beckmann

said. “It may be a water main from the schoolyard. It may be from a nearby house. The investigation takes some time so what’s been happening is the agency has been filling and refilling the hole. Hopefully, very soon we have a cause that can be repaired so it doesn’t reoccur any longer. “I think we’re very concerned that it continues to reopen,” Beckmann said.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

Cuomo’s ‘Honeymoon’With GOP Leader Is Really Over — Speed Camera Issue Embarrasses Both

As Governor, Cuomo Benefited from GOP Senate Alliance, Seeking Power Over Democratic Assembly For years it’s been an open secret that a main reason why Republicans retain control over the state Senate is because they have had an often-times puzzling partnership with Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo. It’s puzzling to laymen, perhaps, but astute political observers believe that Cuomo’s alliance with the Senate GOP gave him sway over a solidly Democratic Assembly that was formerly operated by Speaker Sheldon Silver, who’s on his way to jail. Politics aside, it can be argued that the public was often well-served by these strange bed-fellowships, like the one with former Senate Leader Dean Skelos, who is also on his way to jail. Historically, corruption rushes to its zenith under single-party rule in Albany. Cuomo can take no credit for the con-

victions of Skelos and Silver. In fact, when he came into office, one of his first acts was to create and then eviscerate an ethics commission. The short-lived Moreland Commission was shut down before it could do real damage. To his discredit, once Cuomo met resistance from anti-commission power brokers from both sides of the political aisle, he folded his own ethics crusade! In closing it down, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara concluded that “absent any additional proof that may develop, there is insufficient evidence to prove a federal crime.”

Only Cuomo or Flanagan Can Call Back Senate The way Cuomo and Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan have tossed the

Gov. Andrew Cuomo speed camera issue back and forth represents perhaps the most juvenile fits of political pique in recent times. Clearly, they are playing a “dare you” game with camera legislation because each man has the power to call back the Senate for a curative vote, but neither has the spine to do it. Some Democrats have tried to blame GOP state Sen. Marty Golden, but they know the responsibility lies with

Cuomo and Flanagan. Cameras work and are effective, especially around schools. Should any child be injured in a school zone between now and November, this undynamic duo will be suspect for not putting cameras in place; even though it may be legally impossible to affix such blame, they share any responsibility that might arise.

TARNISHED SILVER

S

heldon Silver got seven years for using his official position to take millions in bribes, making a mockery of his oath of office and the public trust. He should have gotten more. In fact, he will be eligible for parole in less than five years. He remains out of prison pursuing another appeal. I suppose it could be argued that we are heading towards justice. After three years, beginning with his 2015 arrest and through a trial, appeal, mistrial and conviction, it is about time he serve actual jail time. New Yorkers do not trust their government on any level. The massive scandal involving the highest echelons in Governor Cuomo's administration together with the convictions of both the former Democratic Speaker of the Assembly and Republican Majority Leader of the Senate will continue to sting the public's trust. Only justice served through time served will enable us to begin the process of returning some faith in government. *** The Democratic primary to choose a candidate to run in the 22nd Senate District is heating up. I sense that Ross

Barkan believes he is on track to beat Andrew Gounardes and is beginning to play hard ball as the September 13 primary to challenge state Sen. Marty Golden (whom I serve as chief of staff) looms closer. His attack on Gounardes for taking a donation and support from Reform Party County Chairperson Bob Capano is certainly a sign that Barkan intends to use his investigative skills to look into every move Gounardes makes. Barkan's claim is that through public comments made mostly during his failed City Council race, Capano showed himself to be anti-immigrant and in the words of some a racist. Gounardes — clearly finding the Barkan attack stinging — did not take the time to put a single sentence together defending Capano. He gave Bob's contribution away and essentially threw Bob under a bus, arguing the party and Bob were two different entities. He enjoyed the support of the party, but had no interest in Capano's support. Nice try, except there is no Reform Party in Brooklyn beyond Bob Capano. The Reform Party on a county level has under 300 members and under state

COMMON SENSE BY JERRY KASSAR

Guy Molinari was a one-of-a-kind government official and political leader who often made things interesting, but mostly made things better. law is an unorganized committee. Capano holds sway based on Curtis Sliwa, the state chairperson, who appointed him, and his willingness to accept Bob's recommendations. Sliwa in Brooklyn this year did whatever Bob told him in the few races in which the party took an active role. Bob supporting Gounardes was rumored long before the petitions hit the streets in June. For what it is worth, Barkan got it all wrong concerning Capano. Bob's past actions and statements which are now causing him so many problems are not what he is about. Rather, they were mostly about a political strategy during his City Council primary in which he thought this type

of shock politics and comments would get him headlines and votes. He was clearly wrong and needs to make an effort walking last year's primary remarks back if he hopes to function in Brooklyn's hyper-charged immigrant oriented political environment. *** Guy Molinari was a one-of-a-kind government official and political leader who often made things interesting, but mostly made things better. I knew him from the days he was an assemblymember whose Albany office was across the hall from Bay Ridge Assemblymember Florence Sullivan whom I served as an aide. Many very important people including President George H.W. Bush and Mayor Rudy Giuliani give Molinari an impressive share of the credit for their elections. I saw it first hand. He and his trusted friend the late Michael Petrides on every level made wheels turn and things happen. He will be missed. May he rest In peace.

Relocated from Manhattan, this all-volunteer company’s rehearsals and meetings reflect their mission and message by encouraging its mixed-generation cast and crew (ages 6 to 106) to interact socially and share stories of their own lives on and off stage. In a welcoming atmosphere, the experienced and new Play Nice actors and crew are encouraged to come early and linger after assigned rehearsal slots in order to get to know each other, help each other memorize their lines, do school homework and play games. Some may choose to help with scenery painting or prop-making. All ticket sales from main stage shows ($10 admission) is donated to local charities, a prime motivation for many participants who find it rewarding to help raise money for those less fortunate through donating their time and talent. According to theatre founder Rob Lester, the cast and crew are like a second family. “Working on a show with

friendly people is fun and satisfying,” he says. The Brooklyn Eagle stopped by the new location at 89 Fourth Avenue, five blocks from Barclays Center, where the two-act musical “The Three Little Pigs Buy a Brownstone in Brooklyn” is running on weekends (2 p.m. Saturdays, 3:30 p.m. Sundays, through July 1). The Eagle is mentioned prominently in the Brooklyn-centric script in Scene 6 and the newspaper is used as a prop as well. The show’s target audience is ages six and up, with plenty of humor adults will appreciate. “Two six-year-olds are among the actors, with the oldest member more than ten times their age, and the family idea is reflected literally: the cast includes two brothers who play two of the pigs; a mother and her son have a scene together as an older pig

and hedgehog; two actors are cousins,” we’re informed. Original lyrics are set to public domain melodies including old folk songs and classic children’s tunes. The show, which emphasizes “being a good neighbor,” plus patience, perseverance, and pig puns runs through July 1, will be followed by show after show, starting with the summer musical about kids and counselors at an unusual summer camp, titled “Not a Happy Camper.” The theatre welcomes audition appointments, visits, donations of costumes and supplies, and all inquiries throughout the year. Acting classes, puppet shows, concerts, one-day free workshops, variety shows, and special family events are planned and a fundraising concert on July 20.

Saturday’s Park Slope Summer Stroll Makes Up for Last Week’s Washout BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

T

his past Saturday’s Park Slope Summer Stroll fared much better than the prior rainsoaked swim along Fifth Avenue. In fact, it was perfect weather for a funfilled evening walk with food, music and games for young and old. It was a very nice turnout as crowds gathered to walk along Fifth from 12th to 18th Streets and enjoy a variety of activities along the way. While last week’s event ended early due to the weather, this week’s stroll, sponsored by the Park Slope Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District, was packed from beginning to end. Activities included bouncy rides for children at 12th and 13th Streets. Crunch Gym demonstrated kickboxing for kids and there was yoga and stick aerobics for adults along streets lined with artificial turf. Also, A stroller spins for prizes at the the legendary Bubble Guy formed YMCA table.

68 Celebrates Neighborhood Policing Roll-out BY ARIAMA LONG & HELEN KLEIN HKLEIN@BROOKLYREPORTER.COM

A

s part of the NYPD’s effort to build a better, more responsive police force, the agency has debuted its Neighborhood Coordination Officers program in southwest Brooklyn’s 68th Precinct, the goal of which is to tackle problems that affect the quality of life for residents as well as fight crime on a long-term basis, instead of just responding to emergency situations. Curious residents packed the auditorium at Xaverian High School, 7100 Shore Road, ready with questions about the new program announced on Tuesday, July 31 at a special kick-off meeting, held two weeks after the new cadre of police officers hit the streets on Monday, July 16. In his presentation, Chief of Patrol Rodney Harrison said, “There are words we keep repeating, like change, trust, relationships, communication and being a part of the community.” He stressed that old practices that have included constantly shuffling officers around the city, as well as a system that only connected cops and community in stressful situations, such as after a 911 call, don’t inspire trust from the

NCOs talking with a resident.

community. “We have to work together,” urged Harrison. “There has to be a trust, a relationship. We have to make sure there’s community engagement.” To that end, there will be two designated Neighborhood Coordinator Officers (NCOs) in each of the four sectors that make up the 68th Precinct, encompassing Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights, who will create their own hours to be available when they are needed to tackle specific problems arising in their sectors, hold their own meetings with residents, merchants and other stakeholders, and make themselves available via phone and email to those who live or work within the sectors. “They are going to be in the same area every single day,” said Harrison,

“getting to know the people, their concerns, their problems.” Some other major changes include having dedicated officers in patrol vehicles (two per shift, with two officers in each) assigned to the sectors in order to get to know their community. All of these dedicated sector personnel will be supported by precinct-wide response vehicles, and community partners, area residents and merchants who, in many cases, are already providing the precinct with information and support. Harrison told his listeners that the “new philosophy” encapsulated in the NCO program represented “a new way of becoming a better police department,” and stressed that program-specific innovations such as “Build-a-Block” meetings, held quarterly by the NCOs, as well as contacting NCOs through social media platforms, and alternating shifts to encourage the community and police officers to connect anytime, have already proven very effective in other precincts, such as the 75th in East New York. While crime numbers have been at record lows around the city, he added, “Even with the numbers, we’re not happy because we’re still not there. There’s still a disconnect. We still want

to get better.” The 68th Precinct’s NCO team is headed by Sgt. Gerard Iucci, who was introduced by the precinct’s commanding officer, Captain Robert Conwell, who also introduced seven of the eight officers (excluding P.O. Nancy Afaneh who was on vacation) who will be serving as NCOs. None is new to the precinct; all have been chosen in part based on their experience working in the community already. NCOs Laurie Caputo, Christopher Alverio, Patrick Memi, Jefrey Lau, Manuel Martinez, Lumumba David and Mina Ghandour wasted no time in getting to work after introducing themselves. Dozens of concerned community members discussed their individual problems with them as soon as the meeting concluded. "This is a big moment for our community,” said Councilmember Justin Brannan in an official statement, “The 68th Precinct is a perfect fit for the innovative neighborhood policing philosophy. I am confident it will go a very long way not only towards keeping crime at record lows and giving more attention to quality-of-life issues but building on the important mission of improving trust between cops and the people they serve."

Bath Beach Teen Finds Freedom Thanks to Wheelchair Lift BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

A

paralyzed Bath Beach teenager whose meeting with Pope Francis at Kennedy Airport in 2015 touched the hearts of New Yorkers has discovered a new sense of freedom thanks to a wheelchair lift that was recently installed in her family’s home. Julia Bruzzese, a Xaverian High School sophomore, got the chance to personally thank state Sen. Martin Golden who had stepped in to help her parents, Enrico and Josephine Bruzzese, win approval from the government to have Medicaid pay for the wheelchair lift. Julia suffers from Lyme disease and is wheelchair-bound. Golden visited the Bruzzeses’ Bay 17th Street house on July 11 to get his first look at the new wheelchair lift, which was installed in the back of the house, and which has dramatically improved her life, Julia said. “It

changed my life in a big way. I feel free,” she said. Before the lift was installed, Julia was largely confined to her home, according to her father. “She was a captive in the house,” he told this newspaper. The loving dad would literally carry Julia over his shoulder to put her in the car to go to school and to doctor’s appointments. The Bruzzeses struggled for nearly three years to win approval for Julia’s wheelchair lift. They would not have been able to afford the device on their own because it costs thousands of dollars, Enrico said. Julia has made the most of her newfound freedom. An artist, she volunteers at a Park Slope recreational center a couple of times a week teaching children how to paint. “It was one of the first things she did after the wheelchair lift came,” her father said. She also attends numerous fundraisers for various charities. “You’re all over the place!” a clearly impressed Golden told her. “It’s good

to see you at so many events.” Julia, who celebrated her 15th birthday this week, said she wants to be a doctor. “I want to help people with this disease,” she said. She is also considering starting a foundation to advocate for research

into a cure for Lyme disease and to help young people with the illness. Julia, a young woman of strong Catholic faith, said she believes she was the recipient of a miracle three years ago when Pope Francis paid a historic visit to New York City. Seated in her wheelchair, Julia was part of a crowd of well-wishers greeting the pope when he landed at the airport. The Pontiff spotted her in the crowd, walked over to her and blessed her. She was 12 years old and a student at Saint Bernadette Catholic School at the time. Up until that point, Julia’s illness was a complete medical mystery. She had been a perfectly healthy adolescent, but was suddenly been struck by a strange illness in 2015 that rendered her unable to walk. Doctors could not figure out why she had become so sick so fast. A short time after the pope’s blessing, Julia was diagnosed with Lyme disease. The news enabled her to begin treatments.

Cops and Community Poised to Enjoy Night Out Against Crime BY HELEN KLEIN HKLEIN@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

T

hirty-five years after its inception, the annual National Night Out Against Crime has become a much-anticipated summer event that brings together members of the Police Department and neighborhood residents in an evening of fun and togetherness. Begun as a statement that community members and cops were determined to take back what in many areas were crime-ridden streets from those who made them unsafe, the event — organized by the National Association of Town Watch — has morphed into festivities featuring food, games, rides, music, giveaways and information on local services, taking place this year on Tuesday, August 7. For the 68th Precinct, that means an all-out party in Shore Road Park at 79th Street beginning at 6 p.m. and running to 9 p.m. Organized by the 68th Precinct Community Council, this year’s iteration will include a concert by popular local group Alive ‘N’ Kickin’. “We have quite a number of community groups that participate,” said Council President David Ryan, noting that, while some are anti-crime specific, many are geared towards community life in general. Each year, the event is highly attended thanks to its activities and commitment to putting a stop to local crime. “We’ve had up to 5,000 people attend this event,” Ryan said. “It not only shows community support for the local police department, but it also shows that our local police officers want to interact with citizens and community as a whole and to a enjoy a fun-filled night together. We offer free hot dogs too.” Anti-crime initiatives on hand will include etching for cars and a hightech practice through which attendees can get their smartphones registered in case they get lost. “We also have anti-crime tips at the table,” Ryan said. “People look forward to seeing all those community groups. And there’s a chance for them to interact with the police and express concerns they might have about the community as well as some support for our local police which is always

appreciated.” The event will also offer attendees the opportunity to meet and learn about local elected officials. “It will be a great opportunity to interact with elected officials,” Ryan said. “They all have tables at the event and it’s a chance for them and their staffs to meet and greet constituents, and explain what their mission is.” And, as they do every year, attendees will also get to meet some candidates currently eyeing local seats, while youngsters get to sit in police vehicles brought to the park for just that purpose or frolic to their heart’s content in bouncy houses. Adults can also participate in raffles for a range of prizes that help pay for the night of fun, said Ryan. Sponsors for the event this year include The Home Reporter and Brooklyn Spectator, Century 21,

The 72nd Precinct will hold its Night Out event at the Sunset Park soccer field, Sixth Avenue from 41st to 44th Streets, from 4 to 8 p.m. Highlights

Southwest Brooklyn Schools Get Influx of Cash from City BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

S

chools in Southwest Brooklyn will be getting some extra cash from the city to fund such innovative projects as an urban farm and new science labs, according to the lawmaker who worked to make sure the dollars were included in the city budget that was finalized in the spring. Councilmember Mark Treyger, chairperson of the City Council’s Education Committee, said the additional funding is much needed in many schools in his district covering Coney Island, Gravesend and parts of Bensonhurst to ensure that local students can learn in a high-quality environment. Treyger, who was a history teacher at New Utrecht High School before entering politics and winning a council seat in 2013, secured a total $10 million for schools located in his district in the latest budget. The lawmaker also got $1.3 million that will specifically go toward technology upgrades in schools. The new expenditures include

$39,000 for the Rachel Carson High School for Coastal Studies, which had previously received $500,000 to start an urban farm on campus. Treyger worked with council Speaker Corey Johnson to put the funding in the budget. The money will also go toward a garden at the school. P.S. 90 will be getting $185,000 and David Boody Intermediate School will receive a boost with $100,000. Treyger also secured $75,000 in the budget for P.S. 186. “As a former educator, and now the chair of the City Council’s Committee on Education, it is my belief that every classroom should be equipped with smartboards, and that every student has access to laptops and all of the modern educational tools and resources that empower our children to thrive academically. I’m proud to have secured significant funding that moves us closer to that goal,” Treyger said in a statement. There will also be several renovation projects taking place in local schools, according to Treyger, who said he secured funding for John Dewey High School, I.S. 281, I.S. 303, P.S. 95, P.S. 188 and P.S. 205

for auditorium and gym upgrades, new air conditioning and library reconstructions. “It’s no secret that safe, comfortable, updated school facilities create an environment that is conducive for learning,” Treyger said. “I’m proud to continue injecting critical funding to maintain the upkeep of our schools and libraries, because our community’s children and families deserve nothing less.” Treyger recently visited Dewey, in Gravesend, where a new $2.8 million state-of-the-art culinary arts kitchen/classroom is currently under construction after he secured the funding for it. The school has a culinary arts program for budding chefs and hotel entrepreneurs. The program is part of the school’s Business, Hospitality and Tourism Academy, a separate course of study within the larger school. The new culinary center, to be located on the school’s first floor, is scheduled to open in the spring of 2019. The facility will contain numerous and refrigerators, student work stations and a dry goods storage room, among other amenities.

ummer keeps strolling as Bay Ridge anticipates a fun-filled month of outdoor activities in August, namely the pair of Summer Strolls on Third Avenue and the F.A.C.E. of Fifth (a Family, Arts and Culinary Event) shindig on Fifth Avenue. Strolls are multi-block events using public street space. Streets are closed to traffic for the duration of the festivities, creating pedestrian plazas in the heart of the neighborhood. This year, the city’s Department of Transportation (DOT) has partnered with 51 community-based organizations on weekends from April through November in all five boroughs. T he events in Bay Ridge are hosted by Merchants of Third Avenue and the Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District (BID). Local restaurants participate with many diverse outdoor dining options. The streets will be filled with music, artwork and family-friendly activities from dancing to face painting. For residents, the events provide a fun way to enjoy the city in summer, and more and more of them have been availing themselves of the opportunity, Merchants President Bob Howe recently told this paper. In addition, for merchants along the strip, he said, the Summer Strolls are an opportunity to showcase all they have to offer, an enjoyable reminder for long-time customers and a teaser for new ones. “From the merchants’ point of view,

Why BRIC’s New President Believes in Brooklyn

By Arden Phillips The Bridge

Brooklyn has a new cultural curator, events impresario and booster. BRIC, the Downtown arts organization, recently announced that Kristina Newman-Scott, currently the director of culture for the state of Connecticut, will be the Brooklyn nonprofit group’s new president. Newman-Scott will be taking over for Leslie Griesbach Schultz, who stepped down as president in June after serving for 13 years, during which she greatly expanded its programming and moved the organization into BRIC House, its 40,000-square-foot home. BRIC’s new president speaks of her future home with the zeal of a convert. “Brooklyn is literally the most dy-

namic city in the world,” Newman-Scott told The Bridge. “I’ve never lived there, so I’m definitely still learning, but anytime I went to visit friends, this fantastic mixture of authenticity and focus on culture has stood out. And that’s pretty amazing.” Newman-Scott will have a sturdy stage to build upon. BRIC offers major music festivals including the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival (in the summer) and BRIC JazzFest (fall) as well as the Emmy-winning BRIC TV network, art exhibitions and educational programs. When the BRIC executive-search team reached out to Newman-Scott, she was skeptical at first, she told her hometown newspaper. But after finding out more about the organization, she realized it was a great fit. “In this one or-

Says Newman-Scott of her family of four: “We’re going to be rolling deep in Brooklyn.” Photo by Chion Wolf ganization, every single area that they’re touching, producing, presenting,” she told The Bridge, “is in alignment with all the work that I’ve done in my career.” Originally from Kingston, Jamaica, Newman-Scott was a painter during her time as a BFA student at Kingston’s Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts. Upon graduating, she moved to New England and went into arts management, serving as director of programs at the Boston Center for the Arts and as director of marketing, events and cultural affairs for the city of Hartford, among other roles. What her recent posts have had in common, she said, is working “at the intersection of art, community development and government.” Newman-Scott believes that her new role will be liberating. “There’s not much agility in government,” she said. In order to be innovative, “you have to be open to taking risk and in government, risk is not a thing that anybody is comfortable with.” Among her initial goals at BRIC is raising the organization’s profile and

expanding its reach. “I am committed to ensuring that in the future, there will not be one person in Brooklyn who won’t know what BRIC is,” she told The New York Times. “Everyone — whether it’s the guy that developed the building down the block or the woman who has the bodega — should feel like BRIC is the place that they get to see authentic Brooklyn through arts and culture.” Newman-Scott will be breaking ground as “one of the very few women of color to lead a major New York cultural institution,” the Times noted. She’ll lead a staff of more than 175 people, 58 percent nonwhite, a notably high proportion for such an organization. BRIC has operating revenues of nearly $16 million. Newman-Scott and her husband, co-owner of Scott’s Jamaican Bakery in Hartford, plan to move to Brooklyn soon with their two daughters. “So watch out. All four of us,” she said. “We’re going to be rolling deep in Brooklyn. We’re loving the idea of it.”

Coney Island CONEY ISLAND NATIVE History Day IS STEEPED IN to Celebrate NEIGHBORHOOD’S Immigrants

HISTORY

By Paula Katinas Brooklyn Daily Eagle

The contributions that immigrants have made to Coney Island will be the centerpiece of a special celebration of the neighborhood’s history on Aug. 11. The Eighth Annual Coney Island History Day will take place at two spots: Deno’s Wonder Wheel Park, located between Bowery Street and the boardwalk, and the Coney Island History Project at 3059 West 12th St. The festivities will run from 2 to 6 p.m. The event will feature performances by Russian ballet dancers, a Haitian drummer, a Mexican mariachi band, a Chinese folk dance troupe and Italian opera singers. The performances will take place at the Dreamland Plaza Stage at 3 p.m. following an opening ceremony at 2 p.m. The festivities will be hosted by Deno John Vourderis, of Deno’s Wonder Wheel Park, and Charles Denson, co-founder and executive director of the Coney Island History Project, a non-profit group that works to preserve the community’s history. In addition to enjoying the music and dance performances, visitors will have the chance to share their fondest memories of Coney Island by talking about their experiences in the History Project’s Oral Archive History booth. Coney Island has always serve as a melting pot in New York, according to Denson, who said Deno’s Wonder Wheel Park is a perfect illustration of the gifts and talents that immigrants have brought to the area over the past 120 years. “The Wonder Wheel was saved by a Greek immigrant,” he told the Brooklyn Eagle. The Wonder Wheel was built in 1920. Deno D. Vourderis, who was born the same year as the ride was built, came to the U.S. from Greece at the age of 14. “He was one of 22 children,” Denson said. Vourderis purchased the Wonder Wheel in 1983 as a present for his wife. Vourderis decided to revitalize the old ride and then built a park around it containing other rides for children and families to enjoy. In 1989, the Wonder Wheel was designated as New York City landmark. The street outside the park was named in Vourderis’ honor in 2001.

One of the saddest days of Charles Denson’s life took place when he was a boy growing up in Coney Island and he watched through a fence as bulldozers tore down the last of the rides in Steeplechase Park. It was 1966 and the once-iconic amusement park was being demolished. “It was a transitional time. Steeplechase Park was closing down. It was one of the saddest times

of my life, watching them tear the park apart,” Denson told this newspaper in a phone interview on July 30. By the 1960s, Coney Island had become bleak. Crime increased and residents walked down the street looking over their shoulders. The only remnant left from Steeplechase Park is the Parachute Jump. “I never gave up on Coney Island. I always thought it could recover,” Denson said. Not only did Coney Is-

land recover, these days, it is thriving. The beach, boardwalk and Luna Park have become tourist Meccas. Earlier this year, the Coney Island Boardwalk was declared a scenic landmark by New York City. MCU Park, where the Brooklyn Cyclones play, draws crowds of baseball fans and the neighborhood boasts numerous restaurants. The Ford Amphitheater is a glorious addition to the ambience. Denson, 65, has watched the renaissance

with pride. Denson, a photographer and documentary filmmaker, is co-founder of the Coney Island History Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the neighborhood’s history. He has also written three books. “Coney Island Lost and Found,” was published in 2002. “Wild Ride! A Coney Island Roller Coaster” came out in 2007 and Continued to page 0

Eye on Real E tate Take a Look at Bay Ridge’s Tucked-Away Treasures By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Short streets, long on charm. Bay Ridge is full of them. The southwest Brooklyn shoreline neighborhood has picturesque single-block streets and privately owned cul-de-sacs, some of which are pedestrian pathways rather than roads for cars. Stroll with us in search of these tucked-away treasures, which are sprinkled throughout Bay Ridge from Cannonball Park by the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to Owl's Head Park at the neighborhood's north end. And see brooklyneagle.com for previous stories about other short streets in the neighborhood.

Come See Harbor View TERRACE, Where Tom Selleck’s ‘Blue Bloods’ House is Located By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

This Harbor View Terrace house is where Tom Selleck's, inset,“Blue Bloods”character lives. INBrooklynresidential photos by Lore Croghan

There's one tiny Bay Ridge street everybody in the neighborhood knows how to find — because it's where Tom Selleck's “Blue Bloods” house is located. The street is Harbor View Terrace, which is sandwiched between Shore Road and Narrows Avenue and runs from 82nd Street to 80th Street. The house's exterior appears in every episode of CBS TV's long-running series. It's the fictional home of New York City Police Commissioner Frank Reagan, the character played by Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winner Selleck. In every episode of the show, Reagan's family goes to his house for Sunday dinner. An exterior shot of 8070 Harbor View Terrace introduces the scene. The Colonial-style brick house is situated on the corner of 82nd Street. It was built in the 1920s. In real life, the Harbor View Terrace property belongs to the Diocese of St. Maron-USA, city Finance Department records indicate. A Maronite bishop lives in it. To give you an idea of what houses on this short but stunning street are worth these days, another brick Colonial-style house, 8053 Harbor View Terrace, sold for $3 million in June 2017, Finance Department records indicate. The huge lot next door at 8047 Harbor View Terrace sold in February 2017 for $2.5 million, Finance Department records show. Its new owners have drawn up plans to construct a 3,584-square-foot single-family home, city Buildings Department filings indicate. Many of the properties on Harbor View Terrace are stand-alone Tudor-style houses with lovely landscaping. According to Finance Department records, the Tudor house at 8029 Harbor View Terrace sold for $2.8 million in May. Two tiny private cul-de-sacs that are parallel to each other have entrances on Harbor View Terrace. One is Colonial Court. The other is Harbor Lane. The backs of some Shore Road houses are at the ends of these cul-de-sacs.

Come See Charming Cul-De-Sacs off 72nd Street By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Did you know there's a street in Bay Ridge that's paved with red bricks? That's a rarity in this day and age. It's Bennett Court, a cul-de-sac that is tucked between Third and Fourth avenues and has its entrance on 72nd Street. It is lined with a handful of charming, old-fashioned rowhouses. • Parallel to Bennett Court, and very close by between Third and Fourth avenues, you find Ridge Court. It, too, is a cul-de-sac with charming rowhouses. To give you an indication of what properties go for on these two tiny streets, 7107 Ridge Court sold for $860,000 in June, city Finance Department records indicate. • A third Bay Ridge cul-de-sac with an entrance on 72nd Street is called 72nd Court. It can be found on the

block between Shore Road and Narrows Avenue. It is a serene corner of the neighborhood. Several rowhouses on 72nd Court's odd-numbered side have porches with beautiful awnungs.

ABOVE: Bennett Court is paved with red bricks, which is unusual in 21st-century Brooklyn. RIGHT: Bay Ridge is full of cul-de-sacs if you know where to look. This is the 72nd Street entrance to one of them, which is called Bennett Court.

Welcome to Louise Terrace, which is a Tudor mecca.

Come See Terrific Tudors on Louise Terrace in Bay Ridge By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Tudor City! That's what Louise Terrace, one of our favorite short streets in Bay Ridge, looks like. The houses on either side of the tidy terrace are lined up in perfect, Tudor-accented rows. It's one of three tiny streets with entrances on 70th Street. Though each street is just a block long, these aren't dead ends. They aren't private streets with restricted parking, like so many of the neighborhood's picturesque short streets. Louise Terrace runs from 70th Street to Mackay Place on the block between Narrows Avenue and Colonial Road. To give you an idea of what its homes are worth, city Finance Department records show that 7005 Louise Terrace sold for $980,000 in June. The seller had paid $175,000 for it in an estate sale in 1992, Finance Department records indicate. The house next door, 7003 Louise Terrace, sold for

$1.055 million last year, Finance Department records show. By the way, Mackay Place, a two-block-long street between Shore Road and Colonial Road, is also very picturesque. Flags fly outside several Mackay Place homes near the entrance to Louise Terrace, a sight which pleases our patriotic soul. (Yes, a person can be both a member of the media and a patriot. The two things are not mutually exclusive.) An old-fashioned, stand-alone house at 66 Mackay Place has a lawn and terrific trees. The other two short streets we want to show you are between Colonial Road and Ridge Boulevard. Each one runs from 70th Street to 71st Street. The two are parallel to each other. Here they are: • Ridgecrest Terrace actually does rise a bit higher in its middle and descend at its two ends, as its name suggests. It is lined with classic 20th-century rowhouses that you see in many Southwest Brooklyn neighborhoods. To give you an idea of what they're worth, 7013 Ridgecrest Terrace sold for $950,000 in an estate sale in July 2016, Finance Department records indicate.

This is Ridgecrest Terrace at the corner of 71st Street.

B’klyn DA: Low-Level Marijuana Prosecutions Down 91 Percent By Rob Abruzzese INBrooklyn

The mayor and the police commissioner announced in June that the city will have a new policy when it comes to marijuana arrests, but Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez has attempted to lead the way on the issue. His office announced on Friday that low-level marijuana prosecutions have dropped by more than 91 percent between January and June of this year. Gonzalez said that due to the success of the new policy the Brooklyn DA’s Office will continue to decline to prosecute most marijuana cases. “Aggressive enforcement and prosecution of personal possession and use of marijuana does not keep us safer, and the glaring racial disparities in who is and is not arrested have contributed to a sense among many in our communities that the system is unfair,” Gonzalez said. “This in turn contributes to a lack of trust in law enforcement, which makes us all less safe. “That is why, earlier this year, we expanded our existing non-prosecution policy to include smoking cases,” he continued. “That pilot policy proved to be effective in dramatically reducing the number of low-level marijuana cases processed in court, freeing resources and strengthening trust in the justice system. I intend to maintain this approach and to only prosecute the most egregious offenses, which will help ensure fairness and equal justice.” This change in policy is a response to studies that show that people of color are much more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession despite the fact that white people are more likely to partake. One study conducted by the Police Reform Organizing Project found that people of color were 90 percent more likely to be busted for possession in New York City from January to June of this year. NYPD executives have insisted that they are merely responding to calls of complaints about marijuana as the reason certain neighborhoods are policed more heavily than others. However, a report published by Politico in March found no such correlation in the data. For instance, the predominantly Hispanic neighborhood of East Harlem received 304 marijuana complaints and had 683 arrests. Meanwhile, the predominantly white neighborhood of the Upper East Side had 123 complaints and only 63 arrests, according to Politico.com. To combat this racial disparity in Brooklyn, Gonzalez’s office has gradually expanded its policy of not prosecuting low-level cases to include people smoking in public. The Brooklyn DA’s Office still prosecutes marijuana cases that it considers a threat to public safety, such as driving while smoking or when people are “creating a genuine nuisance,” such as smoking on the subway or in a school yard where kids may be exposed. It will also prosecute cases involving violent criminal activity.

Taken together, the number of cases that were accepted for prosecution this year declined from 349 in January to 29 in June — a drop of 91.6 percent. Of the cases that were prosecuted between January and June 2018, 84 percent resulted in a dismissal (by either an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal or by other means), according to the Brooklyn DA's Office.

The DA’s Office pointed out on Friday that it began to implement its policy before the city and the NYPD announced that it would make changes. It predicted that once NYPD implements its new protocols, the number of cases prosecuted will drop further. The DA acknowledged that past marijuana cases, which would no longer be prosecuted under his new guidelines, could still have consequences today. He explained that his Justice 2020 Initiative is working on a new program for vacating and sealing some past marijuana convictions.

FAITH IN BROOKLYN

Third-Grader from Gravesend Wins Prayer-Based Art Contest A student at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy in Brooklyn’s Gravesend neighborhood was named a first-place winner in the 2018 “Try Prayer! It Works” Contest. Family Rosary sponsors this national competition that encourages students to express their faith through art, poetry and prose. Each year, children and teens from Catholic schools, parishes and other Catholic organizations across the globe utilize their creative skills to illustrate a different faith-based theme. The 20th annual contest, which attracted nearly 800 entries from across the U.S., was themed “Mary, the New Eve.” The winner from Brooklyn is Lisa Olech, a

Acclaimed German Youth Choir Will Sing At Zion Church In Heights Zion German Evangelical Lutheran Church will host 40 young people from Germany, as their ensemble gives a concert here on Wednesday, Aug. 8. The award-winning youth choir, Vivida Banda (“Rasselbunde” in German, or “A Gang of Rascals”) has begun its U.S. tour this summer. The first performance of the tour by the choir, which hails from St. Peter’s Church in Weinheim, Germany, was at the University United Methodist Church in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The ensemble presented a varied program of contemporary and classical songs in German and English. Vivida Banda is considered the most advanced choir of the St. Peter’s Church Singschule (song school). Children begin singing with the Singschule from the age of one and continue through age 21 in a graded choral program. They learn music of all epochs and genres. The only requirement is that the music is of high quality. Vivida Banda regularly sings in services and concerts in and around Weinheim, which is near Mannheim, near the Rhine and Neckar rivers. Director Anne Langenbach founded Vivida Banda in 2009, and won the prestigious ECHO Klassik award for promoting young people in 2013. In recent years, Vivida Banda has sung at Rosengarten, Congress Center Mannheim and on ZDF television. This biennial tour is the ensemble’s first one to the United States. The Aug. 8 concert at Zion German Evangelical Lutheran Church (125 Henry St. in Brooklyn Heights) begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free; donations are welcome.

A Brooklyn girl created the winning work in the third grade art category. third-grader at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy. Her prize was in the art category. The Try Prayer! It Works! Contest focuses on family faith enrichment in the home. The goal is to bring the Catholic Church’s teachings to life around the dinner table with discussion prompts, reflection question, prayer ideas and creativity. Students from kindergarten through

Students from kindergarten through 12th grade creatively depicted in various forms how their families are united through prayer and faith.

to rules. Each year, in the United States, three winners are chosen per grade, one each from three categories: Art, Poetry and Prose. First place winners are awarded $100, and the sponsoring organization earns $100. All the teachers involved are given a memento and each student who participated a Certificate of Appreciation. Family Rosary was founded in 1942 by Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C.

Religion in the Original Eagle:

Churches Eulogize Politician William Jennings Bryan By Francesca Norsen Tate Religion Editor

The Brooklyn Eagle of August 3, 1925 reported that noted and controversial politician and moralist William Jennings Bryan was eulogized in several churches around the borough. “William Jennings Bryan dead has awakened in America a determination that assaults on religion must cease,” declared Canon William Sheafe Chase in his sermon at Christ Protestant Episcopal Church on Bedford Avenue. Another Episcopal cleric at Church of the Redeemer, the Rev. Thomas J. Lacey, said that Bryan “was noble of heart and of even temperament, unruffled in defeat and singularly free from personal animosities.” Noting this although Bryan’s personal magnetism didn’t always him win his causes, but that his gifts were in social betterment rather than in political prominence. Dr. Lacey also noted that “the attitude of the Episcopal Church is ‘decidedly liberal’ to the theory of evolution. It is only those men hostile to faith that have selected evolution as a sort of veiled weapon to undermine and destroy the foundations of religion.” Church of the Redeemer no longer exists, having been deconsecrated in 2012 and the property sold to a real estate developer.

Play for P.I.N.K. Golfs for Breast Cancer BY ARIAMA LONG EDITORIAL@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

T

he 6th Annual Play for P.I.N.K. Golf Tournament ​ teed off Saturday, July 14, at the Dyker Beach Golf Course, located at 1030 86th St. Play for P.I.N.K. partnered with the Brookridge Women’s Golf Club (BWGC) to host the annual charity event in support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Play for P.I.N.K. raised over $25,000 for breast cancer research through a recent golf tournament.

“We do this every year for breast cancer. We close the course on a Saturday. This year, Dyker did something very special — they decided to try to raise funds as well and they raised thousands of dollars for us,” said organizer Katherine Condon. This year, the event was attended by 144 golfers of all levels—from expert to amateur — with men hitting the links as well as women. “It was a fun day of golf, including food, drinks and prizes, all for the purpose of raising money for a great cause,” said Condon about the event. “The preliminary results show that over $25,000 was raised for Breast Cancer Research Foundation through Play for P.I.N.K.” Dyker Beach Golf Course has been the proud home of the BWGC since 1955. The BWGC co-sponsored the fundraiser along with American Golf Corporation (AGC). AGC Assistant General Manager Rocco Miano and General Manager Jim Gibson raised money in June at Dyker Beach for the event and presented BWGC with a check for over $6,300.

THE ELDER LAW MINUTE TM BY RONALD A. FATOULLAH, ESQ.

The Effect of a Spouse’s 401(k) on Medicaid Eligibility and Recovery Medicaid is a jointly funded, Federal and New York State program which offers broad medical services to individuals who are blind, aged (over 65) or disabled. Medicaid also has a program for low-income individuals, but this article will focus on Medicaid for the blind, aged and disabled. In New York, an applicant can own up to $15,150 in non-exempt assets to qualify for Medicaid. An applicant’s spouse can own up to $74,820 in non-exempt assets, or one-half of the couple’s assets, up to a maximum of $123,600 (called the Community Spouse Resource Allowance). Any amount in excess of the Community Spouse Resource Allowance may be subject to recovery by Medicaid for the applicant’s care. A question that often arises in connection with Medicaid planning for one spouse is whether a non-applicant spouse’s 401(k) account is considered an asset for purposes of determining an applicant’s eligibility for Medicaid and whether the non-applicant’s 401(k) is subject to recovery by Medicaid. The answer, as will be seen, is that it depends on the status of the 401(k).

A 401(k) account is a type of employer sponsored retirement account. It is similar to a traditional retirement account (IRA) in that individuals can invest pre-tax dollars to promote the growth of the retirement account faster, since individuals are able to contribute more of their income. The taxes are paid at the time the retiree withdraws funds from the retirement account. Also, similar to a traditional retirement account, a retiree may begin withdrawing from the 401(k) at the age of 59 without penalty, but must start withdrawing at the age of 70½ (with few exceptions). When a retiree starts taking withdrawals from a 401(k) account, the account converts to what is called “payout status,” and it is this conversion that determines whether or not Medicaid considers the retirement account as an asset for purposes of qualifying. In other words, if a non-applicant spouse’s 401(k) account is in payout status, the account is not considered as an available asset for the applicant’s eligibility for Medicaid. It is exempt. In addition, when the 401(k) account is

in payout status, the amount in excess of the Community Spouse Resource Allowance ($123,600) is not subject to recovery by Medicaid to pay for the applicant’s medical expenses. An example may help illustrate the difference of a non-applicant spouse’s 401(k) on the applicant’s eligibility for Medicaid and the possibility of recovery by Medicaid against the 401(k) when it is in non-payout status versus payout status. If, for example, an applicant’s spouse has a 401(k) in the amount of $500,000 that is in non-payout status, the 401(k) may be considered an asset and the amount in excess of the Community Spouse Resource Allowance may be subject to recovery by Medicaid. In contrast, if the same applicant’s spouse has a 401(k) in the amount of $500,000 that is in payout status, the 401(k) is not considered an asset for determining an applicant’s eligibility for Medicaid. Further, in the latter example, the 401(k) is not subject to recovery by Medicaid. As shown, the status of a non-applicant’s 401(k)—payout versus non-payout status—can have a tremendous

impact on an individual’s Medicaid plan. It should also be noted that even though a non-applicant spouse’s 401(k) may be in payout status, and thereby protected, the income derived from the 401(k) also plays a critical role in an applicant’s Medicaid plan. The rules governing Medicaid are highly complex. The failure to implement a proper Medicaid plan may have an effect on an applicant’s eligibility for Medicaid and potentially expose assets to a Medicaid recovery. It is therefore important to consult an experienced elder law attorney when planning for Medicaid. Ronald A.

Helping Elders Stay Cool When the Heat is On BY ELINA VEKSLER, RN, BSN

too high. (Be sure that the bathtub has a slip-resistant mat or safety bars to prevent slips and falls.) Simply cooling the feet in a bowl of cold or iced water may also help bring your temperature down. Having a damp cloth to wipe down your face and arms is convenient as well.

T

hough August has just arrived, it’s important for New Yorkers to remember that they are not yet out of the woods when it comes to beating the heat. This summer, oppressive humidity — combined with temperatures in the high 80s and low 90s — puts older and more vulnerable New Yorkers at increased risk of heat-related health issues. Many elders may not realize the dangers that can arise upon stepping out into hot weather unprepared. When taking into consideration additional factors such as air quality and cloud cover, temperatures can often feel much hotter than they actually are, posing hazardous conditions for those already at elevated risk of health problems. Now more than ever, it makes sense to stay mindful of hot weather health cautions. My colleagues and I at VNSNY CHOICE Health Plans coordinate care for homebound seniors so they can live safely and independently in their own homes for as long as possible.

•Seek out cool places — Visit your local library, shopping center, movie theater, community center or anyplace with air conditioning. New York City opens cooling centers in air-conditioned places like these when the weather is deemed dangerously warm. Make sure you can get to important sites like the police station, fire station, pharmacy or hospital in case of emergency as well.

Because the weather may slow down or prevent friends and family

CUSTOMIZED CARE WHEN IT MATTTERS MOST

from visiting homebound seniors, it is important to ensure that they are safe and comfortable at home amidst high temperatures. Below are a few easy ways in which New Yorkers—old and young alike— can stay feeling their best as they brave the heat. •Drink up — One of the most important ways to maintain health during the summer is by drinking enough fluids to avoid dehydration. Drink plenty of water and eat foods containing water, such as fruits, vegetables, gelatin and ice pops. Aim for six to eight glasses of fluid a day (this amount includes the water in foods). Beware of coffee, caffeine and alcohol, which can actually dehydrate, rather than replenish, the body of fluids. •Keep a healthy appetite — Though your appetite may decrease in summer months, it is important to continue to eat well. Be sure your daily meals contain protein (lean meats, like chicken and fish) and carbohydrates (vegetables and whole grains). Salad, fruit and other small, cool meals can be eaten throughout the day to maintain strength. •Cool down the body — Take frequent cool baths and showers to keep your body temperature from rising

•Consider temporary care for an at-risk loved one — For elderly people who are homebound or living alone, regular visits from friends, family or caregivers offer welcome companionship when excessive heat outdoors keeps you inside for long periods of time. A home health aide can also be arranged for a few hours to provide peace of mind for family members who can’t reach loved ones or check in when the heat is on to make sure they are getting fluids and staying safe at home. •Get it delivered — If possible, have something brought to your home rather than make the trek outside yourself. With many eateries offering delivery, and services like Postmates or Amazon Prime able to bring almost anything to your door, you can save yourself the trouble of carrying extra things around in the heat. •Skip the sun’s peak hours — The hottest time of the day is between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Avoid cooking or spending time outdoors during this period. If you must leave the house during a heat wave, wear sunscreen, as well as loose, light-colored clothing and a wide-brimmed hat. Always keep a fresh bottle of water in the refrigerator and bring it with you when you leave the house. Be careful to avoid burns on metal, especially on walkers, wheelchairs or benches.

Cyclones struggle and shine on western road trip BY JIM DOLAN

T

he Cyclones went on their longest road trip of the season for six games, traveling first to Niles, Ohio to take on the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, and then to Morgantown, West Virginia to wrap up the trip with the Black Bears. In a week that saw torrential storms wash across the Ohio Valley, the Cyclones lost a 1-0 rain-shorted five-inning game, and then a subsequent close 2-1 game to open the series against the Scrappers. Concluding the last game against the first place Pinckney Division Scrappers, the Cyclones bounced back with an offensive outburst to finish the Ohio trip. Going up against the New York Penn League’s top pitcher Luis Oviedo, the Cyclones knocked the three-time NYPL Pitcher of the Week out the game by the third inning starting with Ross Adolph’s first inning home run. Adolph, a first year player and native Ohioan, continued his hot hitting throughout the game, going four for five with three runs scored, three RBIs and a triple to raise his average to .288 for the Cyclones 12-4 win.

This season’s Mets’ 12th round draft pick, outfielder Ross Adolph out of Toledo had a career day against the Scrappers in Niles Ohio going 4 for 5 with a home run and a triple to raise his average to .288 for the Cyclones 12-4 win over Mahoning Valley. Moving on to West Virginia, the Cyclones banged out a 7-1 win over the Black Bears in Morgantown as Kyle Wilson threw a brisk game for his first win of the season, going seven innings and giving up just three hits

and no runs while walking one batter and striking out eight. Offensively, Manny Rodriguez had his second three-hit night with a single, double and a triple, just a home run shy of the cycle.

In the following game, Brooklyn lost to the Black Bears 5-2, as the Cyclones failed to bring home 11 runners that had reached scoring position over the course of the game. Subsequently, Jaison Vilera pitched another gem in the last game against Morgantown to allow the Cyclones to split the sixgame road trip. In the Cyclones’ 7-1 series finale win over Morgantown, Vilera overtook the Scrappers’ Oviedo as the top pitcher in the league with a total of five wins, 56 strikeouts and a 0.78 ERA over the course of 28.2 scoreless innings in his last four games. For his Morgantown win, Vilera threw what is fast becoming another typical sterling outing for the 20-yearold Venezuelan, going seven innings and giving up just two hits and no runs while walking two batters and striking out eight. With the split of the road series at the conclusion of week seven in the New York Penn League, the 23-19 Cyclones have dropped to third place behind the second place 23-17 Staten Island Yankees, while the 27-14 Hudson Valley Renegades still remain in first place in the McNamara Division.
