Sassouni, Shi win school board seats

WORDS OF WISDOM

In record turnout, Shi defeats Kron 6,055 - 1,908; Sassouni gets 6,884 BY JA N E LL E CL AUSEN JeďŹ&#x20AC;rey Shi and Rebecca Sassouni won seats on the Great Neck Public Schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Board of Education on Tuesday in a heated and sometimes polarizing race that drew more than 8,000 voters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; more than twice as many as the last election. Shi defeated Nikolas Kron, 6,055 to 1,908, while Sassouni won 6,884 votes in an uncontested race after Ilya Aronovich dropped out. Sassouni and Shi beneďŹ tted from an energized community that delivered record turnout in favor of the public schools. When a $85.9 million bond, meant to repair schools and upgrade facilities, was defeated in February by 113 votes, it shocked many parents into activism. They campaigned for weeks, handing out postcards at events, talking

with friends and going door-todoor to ensure a â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? vote for a bond or budget could never happen again. Passions were further raised by concerns about whether Kron and Aronovich, who have children attending private religious schools, would support current school policies and be â&#x20AC;&#x153;pro-public education.â&#x20AC;? While the polls were set to close at 10 p.m. on Tuesday night, a line with well over 100 people circled the E.M. Baker School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shows how important the vote is and that people canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be complacent anymore,â&#x20AC;? said Matt Klein, 39, who has lived in Great Neck since he was eight years old. Shi and Sassouni also join the board at a time when many residents have pointed to a thread of distrust throughout the community. Both said that their priorities are to maintain the schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; high Continued on Page 21

Great Neck officials Great Neck Library face contested race seeks candidates Rebecca Gilliar to run against Mayor Pedram Bral Two each for trustee and committee BY JA N E LL E CL AUSEN The Great Neck Library is looking for people to fill two nominating committee seats and compete for two trustee seats, whose terms end early next year.

DiCamillo said that while she has not come to a final decision, she is likely to run again. “It’s something I’m very dedicated to.

A library flier says that potential trustees should be interested in helping the community, represent their interests, actively attend meetings and be an enthusiastic team player. A trustee should also learn about programs and the “bigger picture” of issues libraries face overall, the flier says. “It’s very important because the trustees have to work as a unified group and it’s very important that the personalities mesh,” she said. Marie Franzoni said that it can be hard getting people to apply for a trustee seat. “It’s a tremendous time involvement,” Franzoni said of the board position, noting the various committees and subcommittees members serve on.

Village helped Terry, records suggest Payments match description of municipality that feds say aided leader in concealing income BY N O A H M A N S K A R The Village of Manorhaven appears to be one of the entities that federal prosecutors say helped Gerard Terry, the indicted North Shore political leader, shield his income from federal tax authorities, according to village records. The records suggest the village paid Terry, the former North Hempstead Democratic Committee chairman, 16 checks worth $76,733 for his work as village attorney in 2010, matching the dollar amount and number of checks that federal court filings say were paid by a “Municipality #2.” Municipality #2 did not file IRS Form 1099, a tax form showing income for independent contractors, for Terry for the 2010 tax year and “claimed he performed no work” that year, despite paying him and letting him continue to work for the village, according to a Jan. 31 letter from U.S. Attorney Artie McConnell to a judge. The letter also says Terry “explicitly instructed subordinate employees at Municipality #2” not to open mail from the IRS. In response to a Freedom of Information request, Manorhaven provided Forms 1099 only for the tax years 2009 and 2011. The records were sent to Blank Slate Media last Tuesday.

Manorhaven Village Hall is seen on Manorhaven Boulevard in Port Washington. The form for 2010, along with those for 2008 and 2012, were absent, despite village records showing payments to Terry in those years. Government entities are subject to a fine — $260 per return as of January 2016 — for each Form 1099 they fail to file, according to the IRS website. The fine is higher if “intentional disregard” for IRS law can be proven.

Terry, 63, of East Hills, has pleaded not guilty in federal court to charges of tax evasion and the obstruction of the Internal Revenue Service for allegedly failing to file on-time income tax returns since 2000 and lying about his income on returns he filed late. He worked for at least seven Nassau County municipalities, including Manorhaven, the Town of North Hemp-

stead and the Village of Port Washington North. Manorhaven officials said Jonathan P. Fielding, the village clerk-treasurer at the time, would have been responsible for handling Terry’s checks and tax forms in 2010. Fielding also worked with Terry as the secretary to the Town of North Hempstead Board of Zoning Appeals, and helped create a limited liability company that Terry allegedly used to hide income from tax collectors. Municipality #2 is among three entities that allegedly played a role in concealing his income and otherwise evading tax collectors, according to McConnell’s letter. The other two are private companies, identified in the letter as “Law Firm #1” and “Company #1.” This apparent connection with Manorhaven sheds more light on the help Terry allegedly received in hiding his tax debt exceeding $1 million, which he accumulated despite making more than $200,000 a year as a municipal attorney. John Marzulli, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office for New York’s Eastern District, said he could not confirm or deny whether Manorhaven is Municipality #2. Continued on Page 70

Kings Point OKs Alert fire contract G.N. officials also OK pact with company; K.P. agreement with Vigilant is likely BY JA N E LL E CL AUSEN The villages of Kings Point and Great Neck voted to approve fire contracts with Alert Engine, Hook and Ladder and Hose Company this week. Kings Point Clerk-Treasurer Gomie Persuad said that the contract, worth $1.26 million, will be paid in two installments. The contract is an increase of 1.89 percent from the previous one. “The Village of Kings Point Board of Trustees considers the safety of our residents and protection of their properties to be a top priority,” Mayor Michael C. Kalnick said in a statement. “In addition to aroundthe-clock protection of the Kings Point Police Department, village residents receive fire protection and rescue services under an annual contractual agreement between the village and the Alert Fire Company.”

Kings Point’s approval of an ambulance contract with Vigilant Fire Company is not yet settled. The Kings Point Board of Trustees is reviewing the most recent version of the contract and anticipates that it will be finalized soon. The trustees said the village intends to sign the ambulance contract in the coming weeks. The Alert Fire Company currently serves the villages of Great Neck, Kings Point and Saddle Rock, as well as some unincorporated areas of North Hempstead, according to its website. The Village of Great Neck unanimously approved its fire contract with Alert Fire Company, which will last from June 1, 2017, to May 31, 2018. That contract is worth about $1.028 million, village Clerk-Treasurer Joe Gill said, and is about $1,000 higher than the previous one.

Martins touts ethics reform plan GOP candidate for county exec calls for independent enforcement of ethics laws BY ST E P H E N ROMANO Republican Nassau County Executive candidate Jack Martins rolled out his ethics reform plan on Tuesday, calling for a way to remove a corrupt county executive from office. “Ethics reforms are simple in my view: We need transparency, we need independent enforcement, we need accountability, but we also need disclosure,” Martins said at a news conference in front of the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building in Mineola. Martins said he held his news conference there because Roosevelt was “perhaps the greatest anti-corruption politician in the history of the country.” Martins, a former state senator who represented the 7th District, said it is important to restore public confidence in local governPHOTO BY STEPHEN ROMANO ment. “If we’re going to tackle the heavy lifting and the hard issues Jack Martins speaks at a news conference in Mineola on like the financial issues affecting Tuesday with a statue of Theodore Roosevelt behind him.

the county, the assessment issues affecting the county, the issues of public safety and gangs and heroin and the opioid epidemic and the water safety issues, we first and foremost have to deal with ethics reform,” Martins said. His plan includes seeking a provision in the county charter to allow removal of the county executive, independent enforcement of the county’s ethics laws and more examination of conflicts of interest. “As we begin a new chapter for Nassau County, enacting comprehensive ethics reform must be the first thing that we do,” Martins said. “Because reforming the way government functions affects everything that will occur after, enacting this reform package will be the first thing I do as county executive. Nassau County families have a right to honest government and we will ensure they have it.” Martins said his plan is not a Democratic or Republican way to restore public confidence, but rather “the right way.”

Last week, Democratic candidate George Maragos unveiled his plan for anti-corruption reforms. He announced a package of proposed anti-corruption reforms, among them a reconstitution of the Nassau Board of Elections that the sitting county comptroller says would save $7 million annually. “The Martins plan falls well short of what is required to end corruption in Nassau County,” Maragos said. “We must ban all vendor political contributions, enact term limits and implement public campaign financing.” Democratic candidate Laura Curran, a county legislator from Baldwin, rolled out a reform package in January and has continued to put out different ethics reform proposals. Last week, she said she would keep her name off signs and promotional material in the county — a move she said current Republican County Executive Edward Mangano abused for political purposes.

Maragos, Curran offer dueling reform plans BY N O A H M A N S K A R Democratic Nassau County executive candidates Laura Curran and George Maragos made campaign pledges last week to mitigate the inďŹ&#x201A;uence of politics on county government. Maragos last Wednesday announced a package of proposed anti-corruption reforms, among them a reconstitution of the Nassau Board of Elections that the sitting county comptroller says would save $7 million annually. And Curran, a county legislator from Baldwin, pledged to keep her name oďŹ&#x20AC; signs and other county promotional materials, something she says current Republican County Executive Edward Mangano has abused for political purposes. The proposals come as the candidates, competing in a Democratic primary with state Assemblyman Charles Lavine, look to reform Nassau following Manganoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s indictment last fall on federal corruption charges. Maragos is the ďŹ rst of the three candidates to propose the public funding of elections by consolidating the parallel, partisan Board of Elections operations into one â&#x20AC;&#x153;independentâ&#x20AC;? board. That would cut about $7 million in salaries,

which could be used to help candidates fund campaigns, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The band aids proposed by handpicked candidates to the insidious problem of corruption are a diversion to appease voters and will never end the pay-to-play corruption culture,â&#x20AC;? Maragos said in a statement. Maragosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; other four proposals mostly line up with what other Democrats have proposed, but in some cases go further. He would limit the county executive and legislators to eight years in oďŹ&#x192;ce, appoint an inspector general to oversee contracts, ban all political contributions by county vendors, and consolidate the jobs of the procurement compliance and purchasing directors into a single independent procurement directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oďŹ&#x192;ce. The state constitution requires that boards of elections be controlled by the two political parties garnering the most votes in the most recent general election. Maragosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; campaign says the election commissioners would still be political appointees, but the board would have one staďŹ&#x20AC; that would follow civil service hiring guidelines, as opposed to the current parallel staďŹ&#x20AC;s appointed by each party.

S. High senior gets computer science honors BY JA N E LL E C L AUS E N Olivia Lundelius, a senior at Great Neck South High School, helped pioneer classes in Java, Python and Android app making at the Great Neck Library. Her work won her the Nassau County B.E.S.T. (or Bringing Excellence Service by Teens) award, which is given out by the Nassau County Library Association. Adam Hinz, the coordinator for youth services at the Great Neck Library, said that it did not have too many technology programs. In fact, he said, he went to her about starting the classes to help keep the library relevant. “The current director of Levels approached me and asked if I was interested in teaching a course while I was at a Python course that was organized through Levels. I thought he was crazy at first, but I thought, eh, OK, why not,” Lundelius recalled. At the time, Lundelius was a junior in high school, but she had frequently attended Levels, a supervised teen center of the Great Neck Library, since eighth or ninth grade. “On Levels, we have a lot of arts based programs. We didn’t have a ton of technology, even though that was her main interest,” Hinz said. Hinz said Lundelius was as reliable as any library professional would be. Lundelius would arrive early, often

Hinz also recalled when Levels was temporarily based in Saddle Rock Elementary School as renovations unfolded at the main library. He said there was no wireless signal, so she downloaded Java onto flash drives in advance.

“She was incredibly self-reliant and I knew this was something I was not going to have to worry about,” Hinz said. “She was sort of bullet-proof all the way along.” But, she said, computer science is not her only love. Lundelius recalled days where her grandfather, a paleontologist, took her to the Vertebrae Paleontology Laboratory in

Austin, Texas. There she helped separate microfossils from concentrate, which she described as an exhausting process. “Before it can be analyzed, the microfossils need to be separated and that’s a long and boring task,” Lundelius said. “So hopefully I can help create some kind of machine that will sort it automatically, so that they don’t have to waste so much time sorting it.” Both her interest in paleontology and computer science played a part developing a project that earned national accolades in competitions like the WAC Lighting Fair and Regeneron Science Talent Search. Her device sources RGB color levels and data to effectively separate the microfossil from granite, allowing for easier and quicker analysis. “I always knew I wanted to go into some kind of science because my family is very much interested in the natural sciences and nature and paleontology,” Lundelius said. After graduation, Lundelius will go to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, a private research university, to study computer science. From there, she hopes to secure her graduate degrees and get into research. “Computer science as a field itself is really, really cool,” Lundelius said, “but I’m very interested in how it can be used in other places.”

Opinion OUR VIEWS

Right choice at Clinton Martin

T

he North Hempstead Town Board did the right thing last week in voting unanimously to approve a $19.4 million bid for the main work in a $23 million overhaul of the Clinton G. Martin pool in New Hyde Park. The renovation, expected to start in June and finish within a year, will resurface a 75,000-square-foot pool deck, expand the kiddie pool, renovate locker rooms, resurface the park’s tennis courts, overhaul the 55-year-old pool’s aging infrastructure, and add a water slide, spray features and shading structures. There is no question about the why of the project. The pool is an important part of the New Hyde Park community and the overhaul was needed and necessary. But the how — how the Town of North Hempstead evaluates the cost of the renovation — is another matter. After more than a year in intense discussions with Clinton G. Martin Park District residents, trustees approved a plan earlier this year based on an estimated cost of $14.1 million for the construction. The only problem is that when the only two bids were submitted, both were in excess of $19 million — $5 million more than expected. Including so-called “soft” costs, the number rose to $23 million. It doesn’t take a math whiz to see how far off that is. This difference did not sit well with park district mem-

bers, whose roughly 13,000 residents will cover the cost of the borrowing to pay for the project with increased property taxes. Some residents had expressed concerns during earlier discussions that the project’s cost would grow. Town officials assured them that it wouldn’t. Cue the apologies and, depending on how you view them, explanations or excuses. Town officials and Jason Pontieri of J.R. Holzmacher Engineering, the firm that made the cost estimates last year, expressed regret that the figures were so far off. Pontieri said the estimates were based on the most recent available construction data, but officials cannot see what specific costs were higher until they award a bid. Mitchell Pally, CEO of the Long Island Builders Institute, said cost estimates consider several factors that could have changed in the year since the first estimates were calculated. And Long Island’s construction industry is “substantially stronger than it’s ever been,” driving up competition and costs, Pally said. Still, an estimate of $14 million that ends up $5 million off — nearly 36 percent — is hard to fathom. Residents and town council members were then faced with a choice: accept a bigger property tax increase, or solicit more bids to possibly get a cheaper price. The pool construction was originally expected to increase

Editorial Cartoon

median property taxes of residents of the Clinton G. Martin Park District — which covers North New Hyde Park, the Village of New Hyde Park, Garden City Park, Herricks and Searingtown — from $40 to $100. The additional $5 million required for construction raised that cost to $140. Residents were divided but

both they and council members were apparently swayed by town Supervisor Judi Bosworth’s argument that there was no guarantee that new bids would be any less expensive and seeking them would delay the project for a second summer. “I just feel if we go any longer than the one season that

we’re proposed now, we’re going to miss out on memories and people will start looking elsewhere” said Rob Spina, a resident, who presented a petition with 212 signatures supporting the project. Give residents and council members credit. By our estimation, they made the right choice.

ALL THINGS POLITICAL

The outsourcing of good paying jobs

D

uring the 2016 Presidential Campaign, Donald Trump continually promised to put coal miners back to work and support the coal industry. This was welcome news to generations of coal miners who were struggling to find work, because roughly 200,000 coal mining jobs have been lost since peak employment in 1981. However, the Trump campaign shouldn’t have focused on the coal industry for getting Americans back to work, because coal is a filthy outdated source of energy. Instead, the focus should have been on the real problem, the outsourcing of American white collar and manufacturing jobs. Jobs are “outsourced” when U.S. based companies hire foreign workers instead of Americans. According to the most recent report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, as of 2013, U.S. overseas affiliates employed 14 million people. In other words, instead of

corporations hiring American citizens to produce goods and services at home, they hire employees in other countries with a lower standard of living and poor labor protections. Corporate profits increase while good paying American jobs are lost. American technology companies who outsource white collar IT jobs pay salaries of $7,000 per year in China, and $8,400 in India, which is roughly one tenth the salary of those same jobs in the U.S. Likewise, most of the top accounting firms outsource managerial work because an office manager makes a mere $15,000-$20,000 in India, where the same job in the U.S. commands a salary of $150,000. Close to 90 percent of radiology services in hospitals are also outsourced to India, as doctors are paid at a fraction of their American counterparts to read American X-rays 6,000 miles away. These are all examples of good paying, white-collar jobs that are being outsourced for a

ADAM HABER All Things Political fraction of the cost, all in the name of efficiency. The middle class has also been hurt by outsourcing as 5,000,000 manufacturing jobs have been lost since 2000. Many blame cheap overseas labor for the loss of these American jobs because companies such as Walmart relentlessly push for lower prices and manufacture as cheaply as possible. Americans flock to Walmart to purchase cheap goods, which in turn causes more outsourcing of jobs.

Improvements in technology through use of robots and machines are also partly responsible for the loss of manufacturing jobs, as companies constantly strive for higher efficiency and productivity. Even President Trump outsources most of the manufacturing of Trump branded products. Trump shirts are made in China, Bangladesh, Honduras and Vietnam. Trump eyeglasses are also made in China, as are Trump hotel pens, shampoos, laundry bags and shower caps. All told Trump products are manufactured in at least 12 different countries, which made his vow not to eat Oreo cookies anymore when Nabisco moved American jobs to Mexico, disingenuous. Outsourcing jobs lowers barriers in American markets for competition from foreign made goods and services, and makes it difficult for companies who manufacture in America to compete globally. Sending jobs overseas hurts morale at American companies because employees feel expend-

able. Jobs lost to outsourcing rarely come back, making it harder for American workers to find meaningful, stable longterm employment. Ideas floated to stop outsourcing and protect American jobs include scrapping international trade pacts, stopping government contractors from hiring foreign workers, slowing visa entries of international workers, having caller ID from overseas call centers to raise American awareness of outsourcing, helping displaced American workers through job training and improving education of American citizens. Unfortunately, there are no easy answers or quick fixes. Outsourcing of good paying jobs creates an ever-increasing divide between the wealthy, and the middle class and poor. Without balance in the distribution of income there soon may not be enough of a middle class left with the ability to purchase the goods and services needed to drive the economy forward.

A LOOK ON THE LIGHTER SIDE

This laughter is no laughing matter

I

t has come to this: two weeks ago, in Washington, D.C., a woman was convicted and sentenced to a year in jail… for laughing. Desiree Fairooz, a whitehaired lady of 61 years of age, was seated in a Senate hearing room in January, attending hearings on whether or not Sen. Jeff Sessions should be confirmed as President Trump’s Attorney General. “Sen. Richard Shelby (the other Senator from Alabama) was tasked with making compliments about Sen. Sessions,” Desiree told a reporter, “and one of them seemed ridiculous to me and I involuntarily laughed.” That prompted a Capitol Hill police officer to come over to her, tell her she was under arrest, and march her away. Desiree’s conviction is actually for what happened next: she protested rather loudly about being marched away, holding a sign. This, apparently, constitutes “disorderly conduct” and “parading on capitol grounds.” But none of it would have happened if she hadn’t been ar-

rested for laughing. For the record, the comment by Sen. Shelby that set Desiree off was that “(Sessions’) extensive record of treating all Americans equally under the law is clear and well-documented.” There is in fact a good deal of documentation of the exact opposite, but that’s not the point. The point is that the only thing Desiree did wrong was to have something land on her funny bone. She laughed, and it got her arrested, and all the rest followed. Now she may well have to spend a year in jail. There are some very thin skins in Washington, D.C., these days. Sen. Elizabeth Warren found this out while attempting to read her colleagues a letter, also about Mr. Sessions, from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s widow, Coretta. The thing is, that letter was already a part of the Congressional Record. But no matter. Sen. Mitch McConnell accused Ms. Warren of violating “Rule 19,” fa-

JUDY EPSTEIN A Look on the Lighter Side mously saying of Warren, “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.” Oddly, other senators were allowed to read the very same letter the next day, with no repercussions. Perhaps it’s a coincidence that they were all men. Or perhaps there’s a pattern here. I am especially upset about the case of Desiree Fairooz. It’s partly because she’s my age, but mostly because, as she herself said, she couldn’t help it.

“I just couldn’t hold it,” she said. “It was spontaneous.” That could have been me. It could so easily have been me. I have been accused of laughing inappropriately all my life — I have a dangerously low threshold for ridiculosity —so I know that it’s something you really can’t help. Just ask Mrs. Herman, in 2nd grade, who put me out in the hall for using a line from a popular cartoon show about a mouse named Herman: “Hey, Herman — are you a man or a mouse?” I was asked to leave more than one friend’s Bat Mitzvah, because I couldn’t keep from giggling during somebody’s exceedingly dull speech (probably the rabbi’s). But at least I wasn’t arrested! What is this nation coming to, when a woman can be dragged out of a public place (a place that her tax dollars have paid for, most likely), for the mere crime of laughing? Men are fond of telling us women that we are too emotional. But we don’t go around

arresting people just for laughing at us. Alas, these days, apparently, speech — and laughter — are not free if they hurt the feelings of a man. Which doesn’t bode well for the human race. I don’t want to shock anyone, if this is coming to you as news, but — spoiler alert — women have been laughing at men since the dawn of time! And if we can’t do that, without being arrested, I really don’t see how our species is going to make it to another generation… because I don’t see men ceasing to make total laughing-stocks of themselves any time soon. I think that what the thinskinned men of Washington are really looking for is respect. But they should know this about respect: It can’t be demanded; it can only be earned. Nowadays, we have a President who has bragged, over an open microphone, about how he is able to just “grab women by the pussy.” So here’s one more thing to know about respect: It’s a two-way street.

OUT OF LEFT FIELD

Italian-Americans riding the sports elevator

D

r. Tom Ferraro, the marvelous commentator for Blank Slate Media, last week highlighted that there are 319,602 Italian-Americans in Nassau County. In the 2000 Census, there were 408,572 in Suffolk. Our two suburban counties ranked among the highest population percentage of Italian-Americans in the U.S. (Suffolk was 2nd with 28.8), and Nassau was 7th (23.9). I grew up in an immigrant household and have been privileged to teach immigration history. I am keenly aware of the challenges for categorizing any ethnic group. The book I co-edited 30 years ago had the subtitle: “Salad Bowl or Melting Pot?” My North Shore co-author, Josef Sirefman, and I focused on the spectrum experienced by all immigrants: ethnicity (staying primarily in their own ghettoes); acculturation (blending American culture with their ethnic inheritance); and assimilation (becoming primarily “Americanized”). All those phases and phrases are complex; they call for elucidation. However, the trend from “salad bowl” to “melting pot” is

inexorable — the gauge is how many generations it takes for ethnic newcomers to fuse with other groups. For early Italian-Americans (of which I was one), there was a tendency to be “IN America, but not OF America.” My immigrant dad (from the beautiful Adriatic seacoast town of Casalbordino) almost never left our Little Italy ghetto. My mother’s illiterate parents (from bella Pescara) stayed even closer to home and to “la famiglia.” The immigrants in my 13-person household experienced a ghetto life that was later described by scholars as a “decompression chamber.” As in the case of deep sea divers, if you tried to adjust too quickly, you were likely to get a version of the cultural ““bends.” For those of us who grew up in those immigrant households of the 1930s and ‘40s, sports were seen as the quickest way out of the ghetto (not unlike blacks and other minorities). We saw that professional athletics valued youth and skill over ancestry, residence or education. The key was to get good enough at your sport to get a shot at the big time.

MICHAEL D’INNOCENZO Out of Left Field In our Italian-American ‘hood, like other ethnics of those decades, we were described as “sports crazy.’ Whatever the season, that was the sport we played. We had the audacity to envision being outstanding playing every sport (unlike today’s teens, who increasingly tend to focus only on a single sport, often with special coaching). In contrast, we advanced by playing games every day for many hours at a time. \ So fanatical were we, that during winters, we shoveled snow off an outdoor basketball court so we could play regardless of how cold the temperature was.

Sometimes, we resorted to the creative approach of “breaking into our school” (through a coal chute) so we could shoot hoops. Our approach to a fantasy of sports stardom was epitomized when we were in grammar school. I have never forgotten the exchange in the late 1940s between Dominick Yozzo and one of the Culetto twins. We all had trouble distinguishing the twins because one was called “Tony” and the other simply went through our ghetto life known as “The Twin.” Yozzo said to one of the twins: “How are you guys doin’ in school?” The Culetto who responded said: “I ain’t doin’ too good in school, but I’m doin’ ok down the street.” Some of us tried to bridge the ethnic “street corner society” with education skills. No one did that better than Frank Cosentino, son of immigrants, who was the best athlete in the history of our high school. He was also a superb student. He went on to graduate from Princeton where he was the starting tailback in the early ‘50s, and the number one golfer (losing only a single match during his college career).

Frank’s golf achievement is especially noteworthy. How in the world could the son of immigrants in an Italian ghetto become so proficient at golf? Long Island author Pietro DiDonato would understand. Frank excelled because of what DiDonato cited as Italian commitment to “Job.” For Frank, his paying job began at age 10 as a caddy; same for all of us at a beautiful private country club. We regularly joined Frank in playing 64 holes every Monday (which was caddy’s day). We began at 7 a.m. and finished when light faded at 8:45 p.m. (sometimes holding lighters over the cup to complete final puts). Like our “creative” approach using the school basketball court when the building was locked, we regularly “sneaked on to the back holes in late evening to play several holes, betting on each one of them). Our group, the sons of immigrants, regularly won the county golf championship. I played in the number two slot on my college team.

PULSE OF THE PENINSULA

2-state solution the only way, Barak argues

E

hud Barak, the former Prime Minister of Israel, speaking at Temple Emanuel of Great Neck, May 11, argued forcefully for a two-state solution as the only way to preserve “The Zionist Project” — a nation that is both Jewish and democratic. While there are no options that do not bring risk, he asserted, the basis for his contention is that Israel is the strongest economy and has the strongest military “for 1,000 miles around” in the region. Israel would insist on drawing the border lines that protect its security. On the other hand, the existential threat, he argued, would be to abandon the two-state solution. And he insisted that Israel’s right wing government leaders need to wrest themselves from paralysis and politics and being held hostage to the messianic view of the settlers, and act, even unilaterally, to setting the stage. Barak laid out a cogent argument based on a lifetime at the center of Israel’s defense, politics and leadership, serving as Prime Minister, Chief of General Staff

of the Israeli Defense Forces and most recently as Minister of Defense, for moving forward with a two-state solution, and putting “a wedge” in the slippery slope toward a one-state solution. He said that the rise of ISIS and the globalized threat of terror from radical Islamic jihadists ironically creates an opportunity because it has elevated Israel’s position as an essential actor in a global conflict, while at the same time diminishing the Israel-Palestinian conflict as a regional one. He pointed to “an opportunity that happens once in generation and might disappear in a year or so, of a joint common interest that has developed between Israel and Sunni moderate leadership — Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan and others. “The common interest is fighting together against Islamist radical terror; the second is to join hands and putting at bay Iranian nuclear intentions; third, to join hands in huge regional infrastructure projects – energy, water, transportation; and fourth, the Palestinian issue.” “We are never going to find ourselves in an ideal world,” he

KAREN RUBIN Pulse of the Peninsula said soberly. “The Mideast is never going to resemble Scandinavia.” But, “Israel, being the strongest player all around the area, can use this position of strength in a self-confident manner” to finally resolve the Palestinian issue. On the other hand, if there is only one state, Israel inevitably will become either non-Jewish or nondemocratic. That is because in an area the size of New Jersey live 8.5 million Israelis (including 1.5 million Arab Israelis) and 5 million Palestinians. If Israel remains democratic,

“overnight it would become a binational state and within few years a bi-national state with an Arab majority, almost surely civil war, and no future.” The other alternative in a onestate Israel is that it would no longer be a democracy, because Arabs would be barred from voting for Knesset. “Neither is the Zionist dream. It is the consequence of a painful but simple reality: we need a compelling imperative to find a way to disengage ourselves from Palestinians and create a line in Israel that would include settlement blocks and the Israeli’ suburbs of eastern Jerusalem. That would include 80% of the settlers. Beyond this line, should be a place for a viable Palestinian state. “I reemphasize: it’s not because of the need for justice for Palestinians, not because of the international community [and the spreading BDS — Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement, particularly on American college campuses]. It’s out of our compelling imperative to take care of our own security, future and identity.” There are risks and challenges,

“but that shouldn’t paralyze you from seeing difference between existential threat and the technical military risk we’ve lived with. In a way, what happens in the Mideast doesn’t increase the threat to Israel, but reduces it.” He only briefly addressed the problem on the Palestinian side, and did not address the intractable issue of dividing Jerusalem, saying, “No one can tell for sure whether Palestinians are ripe for painful decisions needed from both sides for a breakthrough in peace process.” But, he added, “even if there is no way to achieve a breakthrough these days, it doesn’t mean we should be paralyzed, that we should be blind to our interest in starting...” He said that “professionals” can find their way to a solution. “A group of the most senior leaders of ISF, Mossad, Israeli police, generals – have formed Commandos for Israel Security. They have proposed a practical plan for what should be done now to start disengagement, independently of Palestinians, with backing of Americans and Continued on Page 65

FROM THE DESK OF ELAINE PHILLIPS

LIRR riders deserve better treatment

L

IRR riders deserve a break. For weeks now, they have dealt with far too many delays, cancellations and service disruptions because of infrastructure failures at Penn Station. Two train derailments, signal breakdowns, electrical problems and a host of other issues all stemming from a crumbling transportation system are wreaking havoc on operations. Sadly, the only reliable thing commuters can expect from Penn Station right now is unreliability. The situation is so bad that it’s now officially a national joke, with Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update joking this past week that a sewage leak at the station, which rained down wastewater from the ceilings was “an improvement.”

Amtrak, Penn Station’s owner and operator, is currently developing a major infrastructure rehabilitation plan. That overhaul, while necessary, will likely result in several track closures and significantly impact service throughout the summer. Riders are rightfully concerned that this has the potential to result in an even bigger debacle than the one they have been dealing with. That cannot happen. Penn Station is one of the largest transit hubs in the Western Hemisphere, serving over 650,000 passengers a day. When hundreds of thousands of people don’t have a dependable way to get to work, it has an enormous impact on people, businesses and the region’s economy.

ELAINE PHILLIPS State Senator I have called for several different steps to be taken to help protect Long Island commuters. First, LIRR fares should be reduced during the construction. Riders pay for a certain level of service; if service is going to be

cut for an extended period, fares should be cut too. Amtrak is responsible for Penn Station. They need to do the right thing and fund a fare reduction. The MTA and Amtrak also need to work together to minimize the impact for riders. Shifting a portion of Amtrak’s service to Grand Central Station would free up more track space for the LIRR, the country’s largest commuter railroad and Penn Station’s biggest user. Increasing service from other LIRR hubs which connect with subway and bus lines will also help commuters get into Manhattan without having to go through Penn Station. Finally, riders must be kept informed about what is happening so that they can plan accord-

ingly. Having commuted on the LIRR for over 20 years, I know firsthand that every one of these delays has a ripple effect that impacts you and the people around you; the client who was kept waiting, the child whose game you had to miss, the babysitter who can’t leave until you get home. People need advance warning of service changes so that they can plan accordingly. They also need a way to provide feedback as to what needs improvement. You can read more about these proposals by visiting my website, phillips.nysenate.gov. Commuters should not have to continue suffering at Penn Station. You deserve better.

KREMER’S CORNER

Many elephants needed to tame Trump

I

n the next few weeks, the famous Ringling Bros. circus will cease to exist, ending a history that dates back to 1884. The circus has provided fun and excitement to millions of youngsters, but it incurred the wrath of animal rights advocates and that was enough to put it out of business. The big question now is what will happen to all those elephants that have entertained in the center ring? Happily, many of them will be sent to animal sanctuaries and zoos. But others may be homeless and that is a dilemma that can be solved. There are a lot of places that the elephants can go, but Washington D.C. is probably the best place. No matter where you look whether it’s the Oval office, the Senate or the House, there is a need for more proverbial elephants in the room to act as a

reminder of unfinished business and the chaos that has made our nation’s capital a real animal house. Let’s start with the President’s office. There are probably a dozen or so that could occupy the space as a reminder of failed immigration policies, a lack of a real health care policy, a failure to propose a national infrastructure plan,potential conflicts of interest and a so-called tax revision proposal. Each and every one of those elephants in the room would serve as a stark reminder that President Trump still doesn’t have a clue about how to govern. Thanks to the firing of FBI Director James Comey, there is a need for another elephant to remind the President that aggravating the intelligence community is a proven way to get booted out of office. Over in the House of Representatives, a real health care

JERRY KREMER Kremer’s Corner plan, not the one they passed, requires at least one elephant. That same animal would be a stark reminder that the administration in power loses seats in the mid term elections unless it cleans up its act. With three factions in the Republican House, the future looks pretty bleak. The House could have gotten a new health-care bill passed

if an effort was made to woo some Democrats, but instead the leadership got into bed with the Freedom Caucus and all they got for the experience is screaming town hall meetings and other headaches. The elephant over in the Senate has to be the shadow of President Trump, creating daily chaos in the country. Just when things were settling down, the President gave new credibility to the claims about Russian interference in the recent election. By firing the FBI Director, with no notice to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the President has made each day just a little harder for the senators, who are trying to stay on good terms with the President. Can you imagine being a U.S. Senator and seeing the President welcoming Russia’s leaders to his office, at the same time that Mr. Trump is denying any cozy relationship with Rus-

sia? At least one elephant can be parked in Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s office. That elephant symbolizes last year’s failed election, which cost the Democrats the White House and the chance to run the Senate. The Democrats need to regain the confidence of the millions of people who abandoned them in the 2016 election and voted for Trump over Hillary Clinton. The party needs a message that resonates with blue-collar voters and formally loyal voters, who abandoned them. There is an old adage that “an elephant never forgets.” However, in the case of our national government, the new crop of elephants in the room is a brutal reminder that our government is in a state of continuing chaos and the business of the people remains untouched and unfinished.

The importance of donating blood

I

would like to impress on the many the importance of donating blood. I was at the Immaculate Conception in Douglaston on May 2, where many groups were being honored for running blood drives. Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio and the New York Blood Center gave praise for Brooklyn and Queens for the 2016 Blood Campaign which accounted for 8,000 donations.

Bishop DiMarzio said,” The donation of blood is a sign of social-consciousness because unless people are willing to donate blood, the health of our communities will not be very well.” I wholeheartedly agree with the Bishop. I’m grand knight of St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus council #5911 and as Chairman with my co-chairman Giuseppe Petruso and fellow members Jo-

seph Stock and Martin Aversa, and with the help of Boy Scout Troop #153 we run two blood drives a year at St. Anastasia parish in Douglaston. Now here is my question, would like to save three lives ? Giving one pint of blood does just that. Our blood drive is on June 4 at St. Anastasia parish in Douglaston located 45-14 245th Street on Sunday at 8:45-2:45 Let me also point out that the need for blood

is constant. Did you know that our local hospitals need more than 2.000 pints a day. You never know when someone you know needs blood or even yourself. So, if you can please give the gift of life, you will be glad that you did. Frederick R. Bedell Jr. Mineola

Trump’s ignorance, broken promises

O

n the campaign trail, Donald J. Trump proposed policies, if elected, he would re-work American foreign policies to put America’s interest first beginning with walling our southern border at Mexico’s expense. The Mexican president had a belly laugh and declared zero financial responsibility for the project. So, Mr. Trump promptly reversed the $25 billion cost to the American government; i.e. American taxpayers and in upside down talk declared Mexico will pay up in the future. Trump continues to insist on building the best wall on our 2,000 mile long southern border even though some border land is privately owned; parts run through river water and swampy terrain; ecologists have predicted extinction for animals that won’t be able to migrate across the border to mate and feed according to their biological imperatives. Best of all, the undocumented and the drug dealers will by-pass this great wall and accomplish entry by alternative air and sea routes; so this exquisite building project can serve as a decorative border marker rather than a deterrent to desperados. While campaigning, Mr. Trump promised to re-negotiate NAFTA, our trade agreement with Mexico and Canada, but reversed course in office when he learned of the damage to American interests associated with un-doing NAFTA. He subsequently learned that the Mexican government partners with U.S. border patrols in trying to prevent unsanctioned border crossings and also co-operates with U.S. counter-terrorism agencies. He now understands that the Mexican government has been our good friend

and trading partner. So, the NAFTA project was sent to the back burner and there it remains indefinitely. In the name of America first, Mr. Trump told South Korea to pay the $1 billion cost for our installment of the THAAD missile defense system aimed to deter military action from North Korea. The South Koreans hit the streets en masse to demand of American to stick to its contracted agreement to pay for the system. So, Mr. Trump reversed positions and accepted the $1 billion cost for the THAAD missile installation on South Korean soil. Next move for Mr. Trump was to invite North Korean President Kim to a tete à tete to discuss America’s disapproval of North Korean militarism. Mr. Trump announced his belief that he would be “honored” to meet Mr. Kim in person. Kim declined to reply to Mr. Trump’s warm invitation to a pow-wow. Mr. Trump moved on to President Duterte of the Philippines. He extended his warm invitation to this self-confessed murderer and chief of a murderous campaign of terror with 7,000 and counting Filippinos killed under Duterte’s extra-judicial assassination policy. Mr. Duterte announced he would not waste his time meeting with Mr. Trump. On the campaign trail, Mr. Trump promised to undo the Iran deal of lifting sanctions in return for Iran halting nuclear weapons development under strict international inspections. In office, Mr. Trump discovered that Iran is at war with ISIS as is the United States, so the Iran deal stays in force in order not to antagonize an ally in fight-

ing ISIS. In the America first platform, Mr. Trump denounced China as a currency manipulator and of harming the U.S. economy. He also promised to use his powerful negotiating prowess to strong-arm China into pressuring North Korea to cease and desist nuclear testing and to mitigate its hostility to South Korea. In this negative mind-set on China, Mr. Trump acknowledged the President of Taiwan in a direct telephone call, apparently undoing America’s 70 year oneChina policy. Chinese President Shih met Trump at Mar-el Lago headquarters and explained Chinese fiscal policy; China’s commitment to re-uniting Taiwan to the mainland and revealing China’s minimal influence on North Korean policy. Trump then announced that he has a wonderful opinion of President Shih; China is not a currency manipulator; China is unable to apply meaningful pressure on North Korean policies and yes, there is just one China: Taiwan is a renegade state that, like Hong Kong, will eventually re-unite with the mainland. We all know of Trump’s effusive praise of Russian President Putin that has soured after Mr. Trump discovered Russia’s adversarial behavior in East Ukraine, Crimea, Syria. He just didn’t know about Russian geopolitics until recent days. We also remember how Trump declared NATO obsolete pre-election and how he reversed course and announced our strong involvement in the NATO alliance including the continuation of financial participation at current levels despite his earlier complaint that NATO countries were bilking us and making us pay for

their share in the organization. What about the federal court’s reversal of Trump’s executive order to ban travelers from seven Muslim majority nations on suspicion of hostile intentions towards the United States. Not one of the citizens from the banned countries has committed an act of terror on U.S. soil; in contrast, the Muslim countries whose citizens have committed atrocities such as 9/11 and the 1993 attack on the World Trade Tower were not banned. Saudi Arabian, Kuwaiti, Egyptian citizens were responsible for terror in the U.S., but Mr. Trump apparently was not aware of their national origins, so their home countries were not included in the ban. In any case, a federal judge ruled the ban unconstitutional, so the ban went away. Other issues of concern: the promise to improve American health care system when the American Medical Association denounced his replacement plan as disastrous for at least 30 percent of the country. Trump’s reputed involvement and putative indebtedness to Russian oligarchs as financial partners in Trump’s enterprises has yet to be clarified to American citizens. Just now, we hear that FBI Director Comey got fired as he was in the process of unlayering Trump’s highly questionable connection to Russian money. What about Trump’s tax returns? What is hiding in the figures? What grade are we giving on Trump’s 100th day in office? Will the grade go up or down on his 200th day? Diane Nahas Great Neck

Phillips shows she cares for seniors

A

s a senior who attended one of Sen. Elaine Phillips’ senior scam prevention programs, I wanted to thank her for providing this important service. The program was very informative and featured professionals from the New York State Division of Consumer Protec-

tion and LiveOn NY who offered helpful tips on identifying and avoiding common scams. They patiently answered questions for nearly two hours and listened to real life stories and experiences from many in the group who were targets of scams themselves.

And we received additional information to take home and review,as well as helpful contact numbers for follow-up questions and to report additional concerns. Sen. Phillips even posted a video of the presentation on her website, so that seniors who couldn’t attend could still get

the information. It’s nice to see an elected official going so far to help address an issue that is a real concern for us. Thank you Sen. Phillips for caring about seniors! Peter Gong New Hyde Park

ince I announced my withdrawal as a candidate for the Great Neck School District Board of Education at the Meet the Candidates Night on Tuesday, May 9, 2017 at the Great Neck House, there has been speculation as to what motivated my decision. I would like to clear up any misconceptions. When I made the decision to run for the Board of Education, it was because I felt that I could provide sound counsel and make positive contributions to Great Neck’s public school system. We all agree that a first-class public school district is good for our community, good for our property values, and vital if we are to develop our children into responsible, civic-minded leaders of tomorrow. These are the same goals that

HOUSES CONDOS CO-OPS

led me to serve on the Board of Directors of the Silverstein Hebrew Academy (SHA). I believe absolutely that providing a wellrounded, high quality education should be and is the mission of our public school system, of SHA and the other private, non-public schools in Great Neck. As the campaign progressed, it became clear to me that there were misconceptions and misunderstandings as to my motives for running for the Board of Education; enough so that my candidacy was becoming a distraction to the important issues all of the candidates, including myself, wanted to focus on. My goal was to be a unifying force for the community, not an impediment. I also realized that if I were fortunate enough to be elected to the Great Neck School District Board of Education, it

would be an all-encompassing and time consuming commitment, and I would not be able to provide a 100 percent commitment to the Board of Education and at the same time honor my deep commitment to the Silverstein Hebrew Academy. For these reasons, and these reasons alone, I made the difficult decision to withdraw my candidacy. At the time that this statement will be published, the vote will have taken place and the Great Neck School District will have two new board members. I congratulate both and look forward to working with the school district for the benefit of all members of the Great Neck community. Ilya Aronovich Great Neck

G.N. school bond and budget approved Continued from Page 1 “yes” votes increased by 4,735, while “no” votes increased only 248. “This was an eye-opener, for sure,” said Debbie Volk, a parent, referring to the rejected bond. Counting absentee ballots, 8,379 qualified Great Neck Public School residents voted. A few people also tried to get on line around 10 p.m. For comparison, the budget votes from 2012 to 2016 only totaled 7,205 votes put together. At least 30 parents waited well into the night to hear the official election results. They jotted down results machine by machine as John T. Powell, assistant superintendent for business, got results over the phone in the Phipps administration building. The results were not officially announced until after 1 a.m. Wednesday, due to the large turnout, new voting machines and the number of absentee ballots. But this spoke to the election’s high stakes, as well as the passion of many activists who pushed to get Great Neck to vote. “We got almost 80 percent on the bond, 80 percent of the budget,” Don Ashkenase, a longtime trustee on the Board of Education, said to a group of parents and teachers eagerly awaiting official results in the Phipps building well past midnight. “It was an overwhelmingly successful evening and we owe it all to you.” Board of Education trustees described the results as a validation of the public school system, but also acknowledged a need to better reach out to other members in the community. “While there were some intense differences of opinion about the bond and the annual budget being voted upon, the

Jeffrey Shi and Rebecca Sassouni, often billed together on fliers as “team-pro public school,” were elected as trustees. The $223.3 million budget maintains elementary and secondary school programs, low class sizes, training and professional development, and early drop-off programs. It also covers contractual salary increases, hikes in insurance premiums and other expenditures. Property taxes also went up 1.26 percent, or just shy of $2.5 million, which is equal to the state-mandated tax cap. Other revenue came from appropriated reserves, state aid and program revenue. The budget is 1.9 percent higher than the

2016-2017 budget, which was $219.147 million. The $68.3 million bond will help pay for critical projects and building enhancements across Great Neck’s public schools. About $9.5 million is being drawn from the district’s reserve funds. The total cost of renovations is about $77.847 million. Among the critical projects, school officials said, are roof replacements, masonry reconstruction, and window and door replacements, which have a short life span. The cost of these repairs will be $51.7 million. Another $26.1 million goes towards educational and building enhancements like science labs, auditorium renovations, library centers, a new parking lot and various other upgrades. Jessica Vega, public relations coordinator for the school district, said in an

The bond is worth about $17.56 million less than the $85.9 bond rejected in February. It scrapped building construction, reduced the scope of alterations at the E.M. Baker School and cut additions and alterations to the Clover Avenue School.

Pursuant to that goal, Shi proposed forming an infrastructure commission “willing to ask tough questions.” “We’re going to have an infrastructure committee to have the best minds in our community who are the developers, who are the engineers and architects to probably review the budget items, bond items, item by item, to find out where money could be saved,” Shi said, “or just that maybe there is no money to be saved and we’re actually on the right track.” “So that’s one of the key things, because there is a mistrust developed over the time,” Shi added. Shi, a technology consultant who first moved to Great Neck in 2013 for its public schools, is the first Asian-American to join the Board of Education. But Shi said he aims to represent the entire community’s interests. “I’m for all people,” Shi said. “I’m for Jewish people, I’m for Chinese people, I’m for Asian people, because this public school is for all people, so I could care less [that I’m the first Asian-American on the board] because I’m just a working parent at the end of the day and just want to make sure my kid and all the kids in my community receive the right amount of education and prepare them to be very successful.” More than a third of students in the Great Neck Public Schools are of Asian descent. Shi brings with him over 20 years of experience in the financial, health-care and technology industries. He works for

Outside of the schools, Sassouni is an officer of the Sephardic Heritage Alliance Inc. and has been an officer and board member of Temple Israel of Great Neck for more than a decade.

ard, to bear the awesome fiduciary responsibility to ensure that we continue to observe best practices for cost efficiencies and curricular and programmatic innovation which will befit our continued AAA bond rating and our unparalleled reputation for education here in Great Neck,” Sassouni said at a recent public forum. Nikolas Kron said that despite a defeat, he intends to stay involved, much like he did after his loss to Donna Peirez in a special election in December. In that time Kron went to board meetings, emailed trustees and let them know what he was hearing on the ground. “I will offer my expertise and advice to the board to the degree that they wish to hear what I have to say, and to the degree that I can be helpful,” Kron said.

2 N. Hills trustees seek re-election Elliott Arnold, Phyllis Lentini unopposed in bids for 4th full terms on village board BY N O A H MANSKAR Village of North Hills voters will cast ballots June 20 to likely re-elect two longtime trustees in the village election. Trustees Elliott Arnold and Phyllis Lentini were the only people to file petitions declaring candidacy for their seats by Tuesday’s deadline, Marianne Loboccaro, the village administrator, said. Lentini first took her seat on the board in 2003, and Arnold took his seat the following year. If re-elected, they will each serve a four-year term. Lentini, 68, is the widow of former village Mayor John Lentini, who died in 2002 and for whom the Village Hall is named. She was appointed to complete a two-year term on the board in 2003. Lentini retired in 2007 from the real estate company she and John Lentini ran together, she said. She has also been active as a parishioner

Village of North Hills trustees Elliott Arnold (far right) and Phyllis Lentini (second from right) are running unopposed for re-election next month. at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Manhasset. Arnold, 66, a life and health insurance broker, was appointed to a vacant trustee seat in

2003. Both he and Lentini were re-elected in unopposed races in 2005, 2009 and 2013. Arnold has also served with the Nassau County Vil-

lage Officials Association and in community committees in the Acorn Ponds neighborhood where he lives. Lentini said she wants to

be particularly involved in the development of a residential subdivision on the former site of the historic Inisfada Retreat House, which borders the subdivision where she lives. “We have reviewed very carefully all those big projects, and between all of us together, we made sure that the projects that went through went through the right way,” Lentini said. Both trustees have overseen the implementation of a shuttle service between the Village Hall and the Manhasset Long Island Rail Road station. In their time the board has approved other major development projects including the Ritz-Carlton Residences and a new headquarters for Dealertrack Technologies. Arnold could not be reached for comment on Wednesday. Polls for the June 20 village election will be open from noon to 9 p.m. at the Village Hall, located at 1 Shelter Rock Road in North Hills.

A showcase of Holocaust survival BY JA N E LL E C L AUS E N

I

nside the Kupferberg Holocaust Center, a long corridor of documents, maps and photos details the life of Benzion Persecki – later known as Ben Peres. At the center of it is a rare artifact: a jacket kept from his time in the Dachau concentration camp in Germany. It is an especially rare find. While many Holocaust survivors might have chosen to discard or burn any memories of the tragedy, the garment remained in his closet his entire life – and 37 years after, when it was discovered in an estate sale by antique clothing collector Jillian Eisman in 2015. Eisman, whose grandfather was drafted into the Soviet Army in World War II and whose brother died in the Sept. 11 terror attacks, immediately recognized it as an object of pain, suffering and resilience. “I think others will feel very strongly when they see the jacket and they see the rust-colored stains and the dirt and the documents that go along with it, and that this was somebody’s life,” Eisman said in an interview at the Kupferberg Holocaust Center, which is on the campus of Queensborough Community College in Bayside. “This is a lot of lives, and we can change things.” Peres’ family never knew of the jacket’s existence. But when family members were contacted, they responded by helping develop the exhibit and donating boxes of documents. “They were surprised that their father had kept it because he never seemed to be someone lost in the past or guided by his past,” said Dan Leshem, the co-curator of the Jacket from Dachau exhibit. “He seemed very loving and warmhearted and gregarious rather than traumatized and backwards-looking.” The documents, photos and undeveloped film chroni-

cled Peres’ battle for reparations from the German government in the wake of the Holocaust, his time in a displaced persons camp, and how he survived the Holocaust. But it also showcases a kind, resilient man searching for identity, justice and home. They are also complemented by historical context, detailing Jewish culture in pre-war Lithuania, widespread discrimination and violence within Nazi Europe, life in the ghettos and just how many people died in the Holocaust. Lithuania, where Peres grew up, saw 85 percent of its Jewish population murdered. In a video, Sam Widsawsky serves as a proxy for Peres in explaining life in the Dachau and Kaufering labor camps. There they worked grueling hours creating rockets and munitions, while enduring malnutrition, beatings and frequent death marches. “His story is definitely one a sort of a miracle. He continued to fight and fight and he didn’t let that stop him,” said Abigail Jalle, an intern who helped assemble the exhibit. Even his mother proved to be a fighter, she added. One piece of the exhibit that stands out particularly to Leshem is a letter Peres’ mother wrote to a lawyer in seeking reparations for her oldest son, Levi-Ichak, 15 years after his death in July 11, 1941. Her writing begins neat

and tight. But by the second paragraph, it morphs into a chaotic cursive that goes off the lines. “What you see in this document, which is really remarkable because normally we think of video being able to do this but not two-dimensional documents, is that you see the passage of time and you see an emotional transformation that takes place inside of her,” Lesham explained. The exhibit aims to end more positively. A video of Peres’ wedding shows beaming guests, mostly Holocaust survivors. “I think for students, it’s very important to end on this note of thinking of victims of these atrocities not only as victims, but as people who were resilient and were able to continue living and to overcome,” Leshem said. Just beyond this video, multicolored notes from students drape a lobby wall. While most answers are in English, others are in a few different languages. Leshem speculated that the people either wanted their communication with Peres to be secret, or that there were feelings only their main language could convey. “It’s amazing to see how much the students have grown attached to him,” Jalle said, noting that she herself saw him as a friend. In conjunction with the exhibit is a fully immersive online one, set to debut within the next few weeks and offering many ways to navigate. In this way, it will remain even after the exhibit departs at summer’s end. The website hopes to cater to multiple learning styles, so that any type of professor can use it. It also aims to stir a global conversation, with questions from the exhibit being connected to Facebook. “It is by far the most ambitious exhibit the center has ever tried,” Leshem said. The Jacket from Dachau exhibit is located at the Queensborough Community College at 222-05 56th Ave, Bayside, NY 11364.

THE CULINARY ARCHITECT

Planning an at-home wedding, part II Now that you have chosen the wedding basics, you need to take care of the following: WEDDING ESSENTIALS Invitations * Calligraphy Ceremony Flowers Photographer * Videographer Party Favors Reception * Food * Beverages Rentals Labor Music Seating Valet Parking Wedding cake INVITATIONS come in many shapes and sizes, from the most simple imprinted invitation to an engraved glass delivered by a chauffeured limousine. It all depends on your taste, style and budget. Remember to order the invitations early as most companies require at least six weeks to print or engrave custom invitations. Most invitations are sent eight weeks prior to the wedding. Over order no matter how many invitations you plan to use, since you will always need more. Unless your handwriting is spectacular, consider hiring a calligrapher.

PARTY FAVORS: Optional, they should reflect the couples style and budget. Searching the web can give you lot’s of ideas. At Culinary Architect Catering, we often suggest that people use small frames as seating cards and the frame becomes the gift. RECEPTIONS can range from a breakfast to a midnight soiree. The time of day will dictate what type of reception you have. Discuss your favorite foods with your caterer. Choose a menu that can satisfy “all the guests at the same time.” If you have many vegetarian guests, offer a selection of vegetables but do not forget that other people may prefer poultry, fish or meat. Every dish will not appeal to everyone, but if you have a selection, there will be enough to satisfy everyone. Continued on Page 77

ADVERTORIAL

Long Island High School for the Arts now offering two Summer Academies The Nassau BOCES Long Island High School for the Arts (LIHSA) invites students with a passion in the arts to learn from masters in a variety of disciplines. This summer, LIHSA has two Summer Arts Academies, providing young artists with even more hands-on learning experiences under the guidance of professional artists who will help them to develop their skills. Summer Arts Academy Beginner- through advanced-level classes and workshops are conducted in a custom-designed, air-conditioned arts complex that boasts professional dance studios, state-of-the-art digital media and music/audio production labs, art studios, practice rooms and a fullyequipped professional theatre. Daily courses are available in dance, music (instrumental, voice and digital), theatre (drama and musical theatre), film and visual arts. Students learn under recognized artists and experts in their chosen field, perform with ensembles, enjoy performances from guest artists, and take cultural field trips to museums and Broadway shows. The academy concludes with performances by all

students in each arts discipline. This four-week academy runs July 5August 2, from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., at the Long Island High School for the Arts in Syosset. Candidates for the academy must be entering grades 6-12 in the fall of 2017 and must have a recommendation from their home school districts. Students are placed in classes based on age and level of achievement. Interested students should ask their guidance counselors or principals for an application, call LIHSA at 516-622-5678, or apply online at www.nassauboces.org/saa by clicking on Quick Links, Summer Arts Academy, Application. Summer Music Intensive Academy (SMIA) This summer experience is being offered for the first time to serious high school musicians from across Long Island. Each student will receive

specific, individualized instruction and mentoring from at least two master musicians in LIHSA’s cutting-edge facilities. SMIA students will develop their skills while gaining invaluable experience. Students can choose from any one of three advanced-level learning experiences: In the String Quartet and Ensemble Intensive, students will hone and perfect their skills under the guidance of master musicians, working toward performance in an ensemble classical setting. Students taking Advanced Jazz Study for Vocal and Jazz Ensemble will explore various jazz formats and expand their repertoire while improving their performance skills. For Introduction to Composition, students will use their own, original compositions as a foundation for learning vital composing techniques, then arrange and record their compositions using professional

software. This comprehensive, five-day academy runs August 21-25, from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., at the Long Island High School for the Arts in Syosset. Candidates for the academy must be currently attending high school and are required to audition. Call LIHSA at 516-622-5678 for more information.

Real Estate Tip From a Professional:

LISTING YOUR PROPERTY

If you are considering putting your home on the market, summer may be the perfect time. The frenzy of the spring buying season has ended, meaning there are fewer houses listed and competing for buyers’ attention. Tax refunds have been sent out, so potential buyers who have been saving for a down payment may now have the funds they need. Additionally, families hoping to get settled into a new home before the school year begins are abundant.

EXCELLENCE

Blank Slate Media wins

IN JOURNALISM

10 state

awards SPOT NEWS COVERAGE First Place Noah Manskar “Reporting an article like this takes some real skill, particularly because not all of the information would fall under the public record. I found the coverage to be engaging and informing.” COLUMN First Place Judy Epstein “Judy’s columns, are among other things, savory and eminently readable. Many wonderful columnists write readable and enjoyable columns but what sets Judy’s apart is the flavor of her writings and storytelling. I am quite certain that if I were a subscriber to this newspaper, Judy’s column would the thing I’d look most forward to. These entries were clearly winners.” BEST EDITORIAL PAGE Second Place “I think the pages are well-organized and draw the reader in. The editorials are very good and the columns are well-written. Excellent.” PAST PRESIDENT’S AWARD for general excellence Third Place Roslyn Times “Great school and community news content”

COVERAGE OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT Third Place Noah Manskar “It’s sad how one person’s financial misdeeds can affect progress of an entire town. Instead off focusing on real issues facing North Hempstead, leaders were bogged down with one man’s tax woes. The Williston Times handled itt professionally, with flair, and good writing.” COVERAGE OF EDUCATION Third Place Joe Nikic and Noah Manskar “The writers delivered the stories concisely butt with the information needed to fully grasp the issues.

Top cop out of hospital after heart procedure BY N O A H MANSKAR Nassau County’s acting police commissioner was recovering at home Friday after being treated for heart problems, the Police Department said. Acting Commissioner Thomas Krumpter was released from St. Francis Hospital in Flower Hill on Friday afternoon after undergoing a stent procedure to open up his arteries on

Thursday, Deputy Commissioner Patrick Ryder said in a statement. He went to the hospital on the advice of his doctor after feeling some discomfort Thursday, Ryder said. Officer James McDermott, president of the Nassau Police Benevolent Association, the county’s largest police union, said he heard from police officials that Krumpter has had as many as five stents

put in his heart. “[T]he commissioner has been released and he is home resting comfortably,” Det. Lt. Richard LeBrun, the department’s top spokesman, said in an email. Krumpter, 50, has served as Nassau’s top cop since 2014, when County Executive Edward Mangano appointed him to the post. This year is his 25th as a Nassau police officer.

Krumpter had not been feeling well throughout this week, McDermott said — he skipped a memorial for a police officer upstate on Wednesday. He also did not participate in Wednesday’s Unity Tour, a bike ride to Washington, D.C., after riding last year, McDermott said. McDermott said he did not know of any existing health problems Krumpter had. Krumpter told Newsday last year that he had lost 70 pounds by exercising and cutting down on junk food. Krumpter has led the Nassau Police Department into a period of historically low crime rates — major crimes fell 8.7 percent countywide in 2016 compared with the prior year. He has also bolstered community policing programs while maintaining precinct mergers, including the controversial consolidation of the 3rd and 6th Precincts on the North

Cross Harbor freight tunnel lacks funding

G

ov. Cuomo’s announcement that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will spend up to $70 million for advancing an environmental study, as well as design and engineering for the Cross Harbor freight tunnel still leaves a $9.93 billion shortfall to complete this project. Last year, Manhattan-Brooklyn Congress member Jerald Nadler claimed that there is real progress for his favorite Cross Harbor freight tunnel project. This doesn’t add up if you look at past history. This project has been championed by Congress member Nadler as his number one transportation priority for almost 30 years. After all that time, it has yet to progress beyond the federal NEPA environmental review process. In theory, it might move thousands of trucks on a daily basis off the roads and on to railroad tracks for significant portions of the journey between New Jersey and Long Island. It reminds me of the long forgotten proposed tunnel between 69th Street in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and St. George, Staten Island. The concept was to extend subway service from Brooklyn to Staten Island.

Ground was broken with entrances at both ends in the 1920s, but the project quickly ran out of money and was abandoned to history. When living on Shore Road in Bay Ridge, friends and I would look to no avail in attempting to find the abandon site filled in decades earlier. Flash-forward 90 years later and we have the proposed “Cross Harbor” rail freight tunnel project. Construction of any new freight, public transportation tunnel or bridge project can take years, if not decades, by the time all feasibility studies, environmental reviews, planning, design, engineering, real estate acquisition, permits, procurements, construction, budgeting, identifying and securing funding is completed. This is before the project reaches beneficial use. Construction for the Second Ave. subway began in the 1960s. (Bond money intended for this project in the 1950’s was spent elsewhere.) The first segment of three stations between 63rd and 96th strees on the upper east side of Manhattan was finally opened to the public on Jan. 1 of this year at a cost of $4.5 billion. Construction for the origi-

nal tunnel to support bringing the Long Island Rail Road from Queens into Grand Central Terminal began in the 1960s. The latest completion date is now December 2023 with a cost of $10.8 billion. No one can identify all the sources for the estimated $24 billion to build a new tunnel for New Jersey Transit and Amtrak known as the “Gateway project” to gain additional access to Penn Station from New Jersey. Ditto for paying back the $3 billion federal loan which covered a majority of the estimated $4 billion for replacing the Tappan Zee Bridge in Westchester. Any guess who will find $10 billion or more needed for construction of a new Cross Harbor Freight Tunnel? Neither the Port Authority of NY and NJ, Congressmember Nadler or Gov. Cuomo have yet to identify and secure the billions need to fund final design and engineering, let alone construction. The PANYNJ also needs to find $1.8 billion for PATH extension from Newark to Newark Airport, $7 billion toward the $10 billion total cost for a new Port Authority Bus Terminal in midtown Manhattan, along with billions more for other transportation investments.

There is also a potential serious conflict with the proposed $1 to $2 billion Triboro X (a new subway connecting the Bronx with Queens and Brooklyn). The route would run parallel from Cross Harbor freight tunnel, Bay Ridge terminus on to Queens. This would result in serious operational conflicts between freight and subway trains. The proposed Cross Harbor freight tunnel may be just another in the continuing series of feasibility studies and environmental reviews sponsored by various governmental agencies and public officials over decades. They generate some money for consultants along with free publicity for elected officials who promise a bright future but all to often move on to another public office before delivering. Taxpayers are frequently left holding an empty bag with unfilled promises. Some NYC residents who oppose the project based on concerns about significant future increases in the number, length and frequency of freight trains need not worry. At the end of the day, just like the long abandoned Brooklyn to Staten Island subway project — don’t count on seeing any shovel in the ground any time soon.

It is wishful thinking that Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey can count on billions in future federal funding to make up the difference. Don’t be surprised if waiting another 30 years until future Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey 10-year (2027-2036, 20372046 and 2047-2056) capital plans are approved before a complete $10 billion or more funding package is in place. This is necessary to support awarding construction contracts. Residents who oppose the Metropolitan Transportation Long Island Rail Road proposed Main Line third track project based on concerns about significant future increases in the number, length and frequency of freight trains need not worry. You may never see completion of any Cross Harbor freight tunnel in their lifetime.

Residents question Baxter House decision

C

oncerned citizens living in the Village of Baxter Estates and in the town of Port Washington are asking why the Village of Baxter Estates Board has decided to ask the owner of the Baxter House to submit an application for demolition of the centuries old and landmarked namesake of the village. A number of issues make this request on the part of the Village trustees a troubling one: 1. The Village Code does not allow the building inspector to bypass the Landmark Preservation Commission and order demolition. 2. The Landmark Preservation Commission just two days earlier issued a written resolution finding that the owner violated the His-

toric Preservation Law by allowing the house to fall into its current state of decay. After spending in excess of $100,000 in legal fees to defend the house, and after finally obtaining a directive from the Landmark Commission with the power to initiate remedial measures, the village decided to demolish it. Citizens question this logic. (Specifically: At the March 2 Board meeting, the village indicated that the building inspector would be acting to enforce Local Law 1 of 2016 the following week. While the Inspector did not issue any violations, he did write to Landmark Preservation Commission asking for confirmation of his belief that the state of the house

violated the provisions of Local Law 1. The commission ultimately met on April 24 and confirmed the Inspector’s findings, and on Tuesday, May 9 met again to issue a written resolution.) 3. The village is ordering the owner to demolish a home that the Village claims suffered from neglect at the hands of said owner, thus rewarding her for disregarding the rules that set out by the Board that the rest of Village of Baxter Estates residents live by (and trust the board to help enforce). 4. The village asks for demolition of the house with no plan on what replaces it and no guarantee that about what is built there.

The board has received no assurance that what is built will be consistent with the historic site and the Village of Baxter Estates community. Expecting the current owner to comply with community expectations is not realistic. Concerned citizens understand that the Village of Baxter Estates board is in a difficult position. To be sure, pieces of the roof appear to be loose and may have ended up on neighbors’ properties. No one wants to see the charred remains of the house for much longer. But no one wants to see the house demolished without being certain that all options have been exhausted and without any assur-

ances of what will go there in its place. Citizens ask the Village of Baxter Estates Board to reconsider the demolition directive — in part because the order is not a lawful one (see: Ch. 80, §80-3 and §80-7), but also because less destructive means to alleviate any dangerous conditions are preferable. Once the house is gone, this historic structure is lost forever. The gateway to the village of Baxter Estates, its namesake, and the very nature of the village is at risk.

2-state solution only way for Israel, Barak says Continued from Page 16 others in the world community. It contains all the elements — political, practical, and security — written by best experts of Israel.” “They will tell you that Is-

rael is better protected and safer if we delineate this line, if we have to struggle against terror that takes place from outside, beyond the line, and the real enemy of 80 percent of settlers ...the real enemy are the ele-

ments of the government that keep poking the eye of the Palestinian government by continuing settlement operations.” He concluded, “We need leadership sober, open eyed, self confident of the strength of

Israel and ready to act, holding in their hand an inner compass, not a weather vane. The most immediate and urgent mission is to put a wedge on that slippery slope toward one nation, one state for two peoples. The effect

that extremists on both sides — our right wing and Hamas — both dream and act to have one state is what makes the onestate agenda the real existential threat to the Zionist project and Israel.”

Martins presents county Games on holidays ethics reform package READERS WRITE

show disrespect

But the local sport teams violate this trust and steer our sport minded children away from this trust and schedule games on Memorial Day and Mother’s Day, instead of teaching our children to be trustworthy citizens they teach to be just like them. A child’s game is more important than being a loyal useful trustworthy citizen.

Has anyone noticed over the past 30 or 40 years that the people who make the after school sports schedule always have games on Memorial Day and Mother’s Day? The government gives a day off (in this area 5:27 a.m. to noon) to honor our war dead. The government knows, if not for these 1 million war dead, there would be no U.S.A. It is an unwritten contract between U.S. government and we citizens.

LIRR failing to meet North Shore needs

I

attended the Nassau County Village Official Association meeting on May 9 in Westbury where they invited Long Island Rail Road President Patrick Nowakowski to speak. He gave us an overview on the infrastructure plan of the LIRR for the next few years. He explained the four East River tunnels are the bottleneck where the LIRR is using the maximum (60%) allocated. The ridership has been increased from 83 million a few years ago to 89 million this year but the tunnels prevent the LIRR from adding more trains to any line (including the Port Washington line). I complained to him that passengers in Great Neck have a hard time finding a place to stand in the morning rush hour express train. In fact, while most Long Island school districts experienced gradual decrease in enrollment over the last few years, there are three school districts have increases in enrollment: Port Washington, Manhasset and Great Neck.

They are all along the Port Washington line and it implies more parents need to travel to work. However, Nowakowski is unwilling to take trains away from other lines to the overcrowded line because he will face stiff opposition from residents in other lines. I asked if the LIRR can use the double deckers in the Port Washington line and his answer is that the existing double deckers are fueled by diesel which they are going to phase out. The situation cannot be improved until 2022 (current target) when the Grand Central project is completed. The impression I had coming out of the meeting is that the LIRR lacks the courage to make a tough decision and they have little imagination on how to solve a problem. What happened in the last few weeks with the train delays and other issues are just a reflection of how they think and how they react. To-on Pang Great Neck

Continued from Page 6 Philip Shulman, Curran’s communications director, said, “How can we trust Jack Martins to fix the mess in Nassau County when in Albany he stifled ethics reforms from becoming law, even after Dean Skelos was indicted on federal corruption charges?” Skelos, a Republican who was the state Senate majority leader, was convicted in a federal corruption case. Assemblyman Charles Lavine, who is also a Democratic candidate for county executive, introduced legislation that would prohibit political candidates from using campaign funds for criminal defense in federal indictment cases. Mangano, a Republican who was indicted on federal corruption charges, has not yet said if

he will seek a third term. A spokesman for Lavine did not immediately respond to a request for comment. In his plan, Martins said he will seek to amend the county charter so the county executive can be removed by “vote of a bipartisan special legislative committee, and by super majority vote of the county Legislature.” Amending the charter would require action by the county Legislature. “It makes no sense that there’s a legislative process for removing the president of the United States but not the county executive in Nassau County,” Martins said. After Mangano was indicted, Martins, along with other Republican politicians, called for the two-term county executive to resign.

Maragos, Curran offer dueling ethics reform plans Continued from Page 8 Philip Shulman, Curran’s campaign spokesman, said Maragos, a former Republican, is late to the game. “Where were George Maragos’s anti-corruption proposals when he ran for office twice as Ed Mangano’s running mate?” Shulman said in an email. Curran on Friday said she would remove her name from all signs and other promotional materials if elected and deny county legislators’ requests to do the same. Mangano has wasted taxpayer money putting his name on everything from signs to golf pencils for no purpose other than political self-promotion, she said.

“It’s clear that Ed Mangano is using Nassau residents’ tax dollars for his own personal political branding,” Curran said, standing in front of a sign bearing Mangano’s name at Grant Park in Hewlett. Officials at every level of government brand public resources with their names, a practice that has detractors and supporters. Though there would be a cost to scrubbing Mangano’s name from signs, Curran said leaving them blank would still save the county money. Brian Nevin, a Mangano spokesman, noted that Curran’s name is on county signs, including one on the new 1st Police Precinct

“More than six months ago, I called for a change in county leadership to restore the public’s trust in county government. A recall provision gives Nassau’s residents the tools they need to keep government in check between elections when circumstances arise,” Martins said. The plan would also require both the Nassau County commissioner of investigations and the county’s procurement director to be confirmed by a majority of the county Legislature. Martins’ plan also included a revamped ethics board, making it bipartisan, with members serving five-year staggered terms after being appointed by the county executive and confirmed by the county Legislature. “We must have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to public corruption,” Martins said.

in Baldwin. Mangano has only followed longstanding practices in putting his name on signs at county parks, Nevin said. “If Laura Curran wants to get elected, she better come up with a real plan that saves more than the cost of paint and stickers,” Nevin said in an email. E. O’Brien Murray, a spokesman for Jack Martins, the GOP choice to replace Mangano, said Curran’s pledge only continues her “hypocrisy tour.” “Maybe she should have taken down the signs with her name on them before she claims she is against them,” Murray said in an email. Murray also rejected Maragos’ proposals, saying he “wants to make already over taxed Nassau County residents responsible” for funding political materials. Maragos said there are more pressing issues than signs to be addressed. “It’s astounding to consider that during a time when Nassau County taxpayers face record levels of corruption, failing public transportation and high property taxes, the most substantive thing Laura Curran can talk about is signage,” he said in a statement. A Lavine spokesman declined to comment for this story.

Business&RealEstate How much to give kids for a home? Well, my kids have been out for many years, my daughter, Kim with two kids (No. 1 salesperson at LinkedIn) and my son, Matt a Leadership in Environmental Engineering & Design)-certified project manager with GreyStone Construction International in New York City, finally getting married on June 3! Luckily one already has a home and my son, had already accumulated one cond-op (hybrid condo & co-op, very rare!) in the lower East Side and another condo in Brooklyn that he purchased in September 2016, where he currently resides. I happen to be a fortunate parent that I have extremely successful kids that were able to purchase their own homes with their own earnings (with absolutely no assistance from dad). They worked smart, diligently and hard over the years, to save that most crucial and critical down payment. My daughter, while single, never rented, but went right into the purchase mode when she was 28. My son and his BFF, frat brother from the University of Maryland, lived the lives of Ri-

ley; bachelors for several years in several five-six story walk-up flats and the final penthouse pad with doorman and all the amenities that two single guys could ever want! Fast forward, his frat bro, got engaged and married and moved out. Realizing that rent was a dead-end street, he finally realized and listened to his dad and became his own landlord and purchased his first apt, a cond-op in the Lower Eastside and (gaining the tax benefits, price appreciation, increasing his wealth, when renting was decreasing his future wealth and finally, gaining the security of not having to worry that the landlord wouldn’t renew his lease). Then again, like his sister, he scrimped and saved to come up with that ever important down payment; but only 10 percent as opposed to the normal 20 percent out of pocket; due to the fact that the apartment was a cond-op and their offering plan and amendments allowed a flexible 90 percent financing. However, it was still all about strict and dedicated squirreling away of a sufficient portion of his

PHILIP A. RAICES Real Estate Watch salary. Sacrificing whatever was necessary and not wasting money on nonsense, immediate gratifications and “temporary satisfaction for the moments.” Even my son drove an 11year old hand me down 1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass with over 150,000 miles. Some of his friends, I am sure snickered at him, wondering, how come your dad doesn’t buy you a car, can’t afford it? Well, when he graduated college, a few years down the line, he bought himself a used BMW, so at that point, they all stopped

laughing; I guess they got it and there was a lesson learned. My dad didn’t give me a graduation present either, so back in 1973, I ordered a brand new 1973 SD455 Trans Am, only $4,700 at that time; flying to Detroit, to Jim Causley Pontiac on Mack Avenue, picked it up and drove it all the way home through Canada; one of my top 10 moments of sheer fun and enjoyment. So, I thought it would be an excellent learning experience for him to do the same, although in today’s dollars, he spent much more than I did; but did it with his own money! So now you are saying, I want to help my kids or maybe do it the way I did it? It’s your choice; however, prices have escalated quite a bit from when my children initially bought and they also weren’t burdened with all their student loans, since we split them 50/50, again, to learn the responsibility of paying. However, my daughter’s loans from Emory University, were quite a bit more than my son’s at the University of Maryland, so I chipped in a bit more.

Unfortunately, the burden of today’s student loans and their financial responsibility to repay, are one of the main debilitating factors that are keeping many, many millennials and other graduates, from purchasing, especially, if they went to an Ivy League or high cost college or university. This is a difficult situation and a major burden experienced by so many graduates, that should be addressed by our politicians, to help minimize and possibly alleviate their financial burden. Some way a solution should be created, maybe based on reasonable repayment schedules with lower interest rates, based on a formula based on a percentage of their salaries and wages.

Adelphi laxers enter to Trump speech BY ST E P H E N ROMANO The Adelphi men’s lacrosse team is trying to make lacrosse great again. The team uses music with a speech by President Donald Trump as its entrance song, a video posted on the Barstool Sports Instagram page shows. The video, which has been viewed more than one million times, shows the team running onto the

field to the speech carrying an American flag. As the team lines up ready to take the field, the speech begins playing. “In all of our cities and in all of our towns, I make this promise,”

Trump says. “We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again. God bless you and goodnight. I love you.” The entrance music appears to receive mixed reviews with some fans cheering and others booing. It does not note at which game the video was filmed.

Danny McCabe, the director of athletics and campus recreation, said the music is selected by the team and has to be approved by the athletic department. “The men’s lacrosse team’s regular season pre-game warm-up music is selected as a team and approved for us so long as they do not contain vulgarity or inappropriate subject matter,” McCabe said. “The songs they proposed and used this sea-

son meet those guidelines. As such, we are obliged to follow the policy.” Gordon Purdie, the head coach, said the team has traditionally used “patriotic music” for its pregame warm up. “It was not intended to provoke or be taken as a political statement,” he said. “We’re sorry if anyone was offended.” The Division II school, which is the top seed in the NCAA Tournament, beat Pace University 10-9

on Saturday, but did not run out to the Trump speech because the NCAA does not allow teams to provide warm-up music. The Panthers finished the regular season 13-3, but lost to Le Moyne College in the Northeast-10 Tournament championship game. The Panthers will face Merrimack College on Saturday at Motamed Field on the Adelphi University campus in Garden City.

Group fights for alternative treatments BY JA N E LL E C L AUS E N Nearly thirty people from Great Neck donned umbrellas and white attire as they trekked through torrential rain on the Cross Island Parkway Trail in Bayside, Queens on Saturday, hoping to benefit a Great Neck resident and raise awareness for alternative cancer therapies. The nonprofit Sheryl Donofrio Foundation‘s inaugural walk benefited Great Neck resident Sheryl Donofrio, a mother of four currently undergoing round six of an alternative treatment for lung cancer, and the foundation itself. Jennifer Garris, Donofrio’s daughter and founder of the Sheryl Donofrio Foundation, described her mother as an amaz-

ing person who has led by example to make a difference in the world. Donofrio has been an advocate for individuals with disabilities for over 25 years, she said, and sits on the Town of North Hempstead’s Disability Advisory Committee. “She has spent her life volunteering, spearheading food drives and sacrificing her own needs for the needs of others and her children,” Garris said. “My mom has always moved mountains for us and now she needs help.” Garris, a Great Neck South 2008 graduate, started the foundation in December to help her mother battle cancer and raise awareness for different cancer treatments. She said that watching her mother go through such pain and being unable to

help was the “worst kind of hell.” “In September they [the doctors] told me my mother had three to five weeks to live, so start making plans,” Garris said. “I said we’re not accepting that answer. We’re going to fight with everything we’ve got.” “It’s kind of a whirlwind of emotions,” Garris added. The treatment Donofrio is undergoing is gamma delta T-cell therapy, which stimulates T-cells to attack cancer cells. Immunotherapy, on the other hand, tends to fight all the cells. T-cell therapy, however, typically is not done through insurance, Garris said. Still, she said, the treatment worked well for her mother the last six months. She described it as rather miraculous so

far. Her mother, after all, actually participated in the foundation’s walk. “I hope that by sharing her story people will find it in their hearts to help save our mother’s life by providing her access to this miraculous, uncovered treatment while also helping others afflicted with this horrible disease,” Garris said. Rachel Kasab, a longtime friend of the Donofrios who helped organized the event, said that she appreciated the outpouring of support, given the weather and that Mother’s Day would be on Sunday. “It was honestly heartwarming,” Kasab said.

Village helped Terry, records suggest Payments match description of municipality that feds say aided leader in concealing income Continued from Page 3 Donald Badaczewski, the village justice court clerk, said Terry’s Form 1099 for 2010 could have been destroyed in a fire at a Brooklyn warehouse where the village stored records or otherwise lost by a previous administration. “The village feels strongly that they did send a 1099 and that it was lost in the fire in Brooklyn,” village Mayor Jim Avena said. Trustee Rita DiLucia, who was on the village Board of Trustees in 2010, said she had no knowledge of whether the village issued Terry a 1099 or not that year, intentionally or otherwise. Fielding could not be reached for comment. But Avena described him as “one of the finest, most honest men I’ve ever met” and said he would never intentionally withhold a Form 1099. Avena denied that the village was complicit in Terry’s alleged tax evasion. He highly doubts that Manorhaven officials were those whom Terry told not to open IRS mail, he said, as Terry

was not in the village office on a daily basis. “Based upon the circumstance and the people involved, I would absolutely find it extraordinary that I was wrong on this one,” Avena said. Terry declined to comment for this story, as did his attorney, Stephen P. Scaring. Terry has also pleaded not guilty to eight charges of tax fraud brought in New York State courts. He is next due in federal court on June 16 and in state court on June 23. McConnell’s Jan. 31 letter asked U.S. District Court Judge Joanna Seybert to detain Terry until his trial. Seybert denied the request. Terry was released on bail and first confined to his home, but was later allowed to leave. A listing of Manorhaven’s payments to Terry shows 15 checks with dates in 2010 totaling $73,533. But a 16th check for $3,200, dated Jan. 1, 2011, brings the total amount to $76,733. Badaczewski said it is possible that the Jan. 1, 2011, check

Gerard Terry was actually paid in late 2010. The 25 other payments to Terry in 2011 total $80,000, matching the amount on his Form 1099 for that year. Terry allegedly cashed the checks at the bank where they were drawn to prevent the IRS from garnishing his wages, according to McConnell’s letter. Sharon Natalie Abramski, the current village clerk, said she had no knowledge of whether Manorhaven was Municipality #2 as described in McConnell’s letter. Asked whether she thought

it was possible, Abramski said, “I would not speculate. That would be silly for me to do. I don’t know how they did things. … I’ve only been the clerk since last July, so I’ve kind of revamped things.” Records that other municipalities for which Terry worked provided in response to Freedom of Information requests do not match the description of Municipality #2. The Village of Port Washington North paid Terry $14,643.75 in 2011 and 2012, according to Forms 1099 and village financial records. The Long Beach Housing Authority only employed him as a consultant in 2015, paying him $12,000. Terry was on the Nassau County payroll as an employee for the Nassau Board of Elections, and the county did not issue him any Forms 1099, Sergio A. Blanco, a deputy county comptroller, said in an email. Blank Slate Media’s requests to the Freeport Community Development Agency, the Roosevelt Public Library and the

Town of North Hempstead are still pending. Terry also did work for the North Hempstead Housing Authority, federal prosecutors said in a January news release. But Sean T. Rainey, the authority’s executive director, said the authority never employed Terry. Terry has blamed his tax debt on “Type-A workaholic compulsion with self-denial and truly catastrophic health issues.” Scaring told Seybert in a February letter that the allegations against him have left his family with little income. Terry is also under investigation for his role in bid-rigging and procurement fraud schemes in Nassau County, according to McConnell’s Jan. 31 letter. He has not been charged with any crimes related to that investigation. Manorhaven received two separate federal subpoenas in 2007 and 2016 seeking records related to Terry. The village received a separate subpoena in 2015 for records relating to contracts with eight village vendors.

G.N. Library seeks 2 board candidates Continued from Page 2 by local, state and federal laws. The board also evaluates the library’s quality and hires or fires the library’s executive director. Robert Schaufeld, president of the library’s Board of Trustees, said the board typically meets once a month. A trustee could expect to do some work outside the

meetings, like responding to emails, dealing with any unexpected issues that arise, and fielding phone calls. Still, Schaufeld said, it’s rewarding and not all-time consuming. “It’s more juggling a career while doing all these things,” Schaufeld said. But if two seats were to be vacant on the Board of Trustees and the library

had nobody run, then “we don’t have the ability to function” effectively, Schaufeld added. Franzoni said the time commitment for a nominating committee applicant is relatively small in comparison. Their primary responsibility is to solicit applications for any position and review them, she said.

Anyone interested must send a letter and resume by June 1 to the Chair of the Nominating Committee, c/o The Director’s Office – Great Neck Library, 159 Bayview Ave., Great Neck, NY 11023. A nominee must be a member of the Great Neck Library Association or a registered voter with the Nassau County Board of Elections by Oct. 2, 2017.

COMMUNITY NEWS

Social services named agency of the year Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced that the Nassau County Department of Social Services has been named the recipient of the 2017 Agency of the Year Award by the National Association of Social Worker’s Nassau Division. The award will be presented at a ceremony on Thursday, June 8th at Piccola Bussola restaurant in Mineola. “I congratulate the entire Department of Social Services team for their hard work and dedication to those in need,” Mangano said. “DSS provides services to nearly 300,000 Nassau residents every year, has been an ongoing model of programmatic and financial efficiency and an active participant in the New York Public Welfare Association, advocating for legislative reform in the provision of social services programs.” The NASW Agency of the Year Award is provided to

an Agency that demonstrates a strong commitment to social work education and to the profession, as well as continues to improve the quality of life in the community. According to the NASW Nassau Division, Nassau DSS continues to far exceed expectations for human services organizations, continually striving to implement innovative approaches that can improve the quality of life for the residents of all Nassau County communities. “We are deeply honored and humbled by the designation of DSS by Nassau NASW as Nassau County’s 2017 Agency of the Year,” said DSS Commissioner John E. Imhof. “This success is primarily due to the Department’s greatest resource—the more than 900 men and women working at DSS whose efforts each day save, enrich and transform lives and communities, creating positive ripple effects that are felt not just today or tomorrow, but also

for years to come. I also wish to thank County Executive Mangano and the entire County Legislature for their unwavering support of DSS.” “Outreach to the community is ongoing, with DSS having meaningful relationships with more than one hundred non-profits, educational, and health and human service agencies,” said Elissa Giffords, chairperson of the DSS Advisory Council. “Activities such as the Job Fair, and DSS Volunteer Services, engage the public and DSS clients themselves attest to its strong commitment to their community. Nassau County DSS has made significant contributions emulated by other counties statewide. Recently the New York State Office of Children and Family Services highlighted Nassau’s DSS as successfully reducing the disproportionate minority representation of youth in Foster Care.”

There is a new movement emerging in America called Reimagining Suburbia. This movement may have been started with James Kunstlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Geography of Nowhereâ&#x20AC;? written in 1993. Kunstler described the housing boom during the post-World War II era which created cheap housing on the plains of Long Island for the returning GIs. The concept of ďŹ&#x201A;ight from the inner city was reasonable but he was one of the ďŹ rst to describe how impoverished suburbia had become. Without planning for art institutions or town squares and with the domination of car culture, strip malls and monotonous cookie cutter Levitt homes, suburbia had become a cultural wasteland. Our wish for a walkable town where one would regularly run into neighbors for a friendly chat or a bit of gossip had been replaced by an angry drive to a mall where one would shop among strangers. However the wish for a pleasant neighborhood life remains as strong as ever. Witness the ďŹ lm â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Book of Henryâ&#x20AC;? starring Naomi Watts, which will be released in June. The ďŹ lm crew did lots of the shooting here at Hildebrandtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Hillside Avenue in Williston Park to capture a home town feeling. Build a Better Burb is a website which talks about the natural desire to have a walkable town. It describes how many Americans are turning their backs on car culture and prefer a walkable town where they can shop, work and live. There are now things called â&#x20AC;&#x153;pocket neighborhoodsâ&#x20AC;? which are planned groupings of smaller residences built around a courtyard or common garden to promote a closer sense of community and neighborliness. Every Long Island town has its own architectural board, beautiďŹ cation committee and urban planning commission. Years ago I interviewed the head of urban planning in Carmel by the Sea in California. Carmel is an awe-inspiring jewel of a town on the Monterey Peninsula in California that has been the home of many artists including Doris Day, Clint Eastwood, Ansel Adams, Jack London, Sinclair Lewis and Robert Lewis Stevenson. The town planner of Carmel told me that these artists were attracted to the natural beauty of the town but conversely lent their aesthetic senses to furthering its beauty. And now Carmelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quaint shops and quiet peaceful charm attract over 1,500,000 visitors a year. To ďŹ nd out more about who is looking over the aesthetic look of

DR. TOM FERRARO Our Town Williston Park I called upon former Mayor Doreen Ehrbar, who has been in charge of the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiďŹ cation committee since 1996. When we spoke she told me that her crew in coordination with the village workers meets every other week to arrange plantings on the Hillside Avenue median, to plant trees and bushes in the parks and to establish â&#x20AC;&#x153;buckets of beautyâ&#x20AC;? in front of each store. She told me that Williston Park has a small town feel. I must say that when I interview local professionals or storekeepers they always say they were attracted to Williston Park because of the decency of the people and feeling of safety of the town. A townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s identity and brand is established by the appearance of the store fronts and the look of the homes. Anyone who takes the time to walk through the back streets of Williston Park will observe large homes with small sized yards that are immaculately tended. Years ago I asked an urban planner to walk down Hillside Avenue with me and gave me her impressions of Williston Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main street. She told me that it lacked a clear identity. Some storefronts had wood like Peter Andrews, some had brick fronts and some looked old fashioned with old fashioned colors like Hildebrandtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

The police station had modern architecture right next to a brick Tudor home which was next to the old Collins farmhouse converted into a restaurant. So I asked Doreen Ehrbar about the issue of identity and she mentioned that just last week she was discussing this issue. She had said that perhaps the stores needed the same color and type of awnings to establish identity but the opposing view was that the town displayed a feel of individualism or variety which served it well. She then brought up the question of grants which would be needed in order to fund these changes. I thought about the amount of wealth in Carmel which allowed the town to control all aspects of building. Ehrbar told me she found inspiration from the Town of East Hampton. One of the marvels of travel is that it opens your eyes to what is possible. I just returned from a vacation in Capri. The entire island is a remarkable thing of beauty with its gardens, villas and streets. The town was built using the unlimited wealth of the Roman Empire 2,000 years ago. And there are no cars on the island so everyone strolls along its streets at ease and in peace. The moral of this story of Williston Park is simple. It is possible to create a more beautiful town. All you need are three things. You need able leadership, which we already have. You then need an artistic vision but ďŹ nally you need money as well. In the Village Green newsletter there is a form which you can ďŹ ll out and make a contribution. In grad school I was a grant writer for aesthetic education in SuďŹ&#x20AC;olk County. I think I could be talked into writing a grant that could also help us to infuse our town with beautiďŹ cation money as well.

Here is main street in Capri, the perfect example of a walkable town.

Planning at-home wedding Continued from Page 32 BEVERAGES: Are you going to have a champagne reception or offer a full bar? Many caterers suggest that the client purchase the liquor for savings and liquor liability (check to see if you need a rider on your insurance policy for the event). Other caterers prefer to supply the alcohol. Be sure to include liquor, mixers and ice in your budget. RENTALS today offer a large range of table appointments. From the most simple glass plate to Royal Doulton china, from stainless steel to silver, from glass to crystal, anything and everything is available to adorn your reception table and make all the appointments appear as if they belong to the household. Your wedding coordinator or caterer can show you what is available or you can find your own rentals on line under “party rental” and investigate all your options. LABOR: Most caterers charge a labor cost for the people who set up and serve you during the reception.

Be sure to ask when the caterer quotes prices if service is included. Also ask if there is a mandatory gratuity and what it is. Ask to see photographs of the staff. Are they well groomed, uniformed and neat? MUSIC, good or bad, can make or break the party. (I was a guest at a tent wedding where it poured rain, the food was abominable, but the music was great — everyone had a terrific time.) Music for the ceremony can range from organ to cello to harp to trios to whatever — it all depends on your style and taste. Music for the reception tends to be more au courant — from bands and DJs to couples making their own playlist. Either go and hear the groups play or search the web for sample music. No matter what, be sure the music will be enjoyed by everyone. SEATING: If you are having a sit-down (or even a buffet) meal,

be sure that everyone has a seat. Assigned seating often makes your guests more comfortable and at ease because people know where to put themselves. VALET: If parking is a problem, consider hiring a valet company. Be sure the company is properly insured and drivers presentable. WEDDING CAKE: Although most caterers can supply some type of wedding cake, there are people who specialize solely in baking wedding cakes. Costs generally range from $5 to $25 per guest per slice. (If you want to have a first anniversary party, be sure to have the baker prepare an extra top layer.) Alexandra Troy is owner of Culinary Architect Catering, a 35-year-old, Greenvale-based company, specializing in weddings, private, corporate and promotional parties. Please share your At Home Wedding photographs at party@ culinaryarchitect.com.

COMMUNITY NEWS

Feinstein CEO honored Dr. Kevin J. Tracey, Northwell Health’s Feinstein Institute for Medical Research president and CEO, is the recipient of Boston University School of Medicine’s prestigious Alumni Award. The award was presented during a ceremony Friday, May 5 at Boston University. First presented in 1954, the Alumni Awards are the highest and one of the oldest honors that Boston University School of Medicine presents its alumni. The award is presented to a graduate in recognition of outstanding and widely recognized achievement, particularly to someone who exemplifies the standards and objectives of the School of Medicine through personal conduct, professional accomplishments, and community service. Distinct preference is given to one whose achievements have a significant impact to the medical field on a national and global scale. Tracey was honored for his work in immunology and neuroscience, which includes identifying the inflam-

matory reflex — the basis for the emerging new field of bioelectronic medicine. He was one of the first researchers to identify that stimulation of the vagus nerve, located in the neck, could reduce inflammation. Tracey’s work found that the nervous system uses electrical signals to communicate information throughout the body. Virtually every cell and organ of the body is directly or indirectly controlled by these neural signals. “I am fortunate to pursue a career in research in the hope of helping patients,” said Tracey. “It is an honor to be recognized by this prestigious institution that continues to have a major impact on patients and the community.” Researchers at the Feinstein Institute are taking Tracey’s findings and continuing to learn the language of the body’s neural signals to develop devices that can monitor and treat disease and injury without the use of drugs.

Schools plan Berkshires trip

G.N. Rotary club awards students The Rotary Club of Great Neck annually recognizes students from North Middle and South Middle School who have demonstrated “an exemplary level of community service, as determined by their school administrators.” Receiving this year’s Rotary Youth Merit Award were: Kelly Chu and Avery Park from North Middle School; and Eli Goodwin, Patrick Rau, and David Wang from South Middle

School. Joining the students at the recognition were Great Neck Public School administrators and teachers, and Rotary officers. Leonard Katz, Rotary official, said of the recognized students, “It is our extreme privilege and pleasure to recognize the dedication and commitment of these students for their efforts in living up to the Rotary Motto, ‘Service Above Self.’”

For the third summer in a row, Great Neck Public Schools Community Education is thrilled to offer a fun, culture-filled tour to the Massachusetts Berkshires, from Tuesday, July 25 to Thursday, July 27. The region is about three hours from New York City, and lives up to the storybook image of rural New England, with scenic wooded hills, winding roads, and historic, charming villages. During the summer, the Berkshires come alive with numerous, first-rate, cultural, arts, and performance events. Estelle Berg, a Community Ed Trip Leader, and a homeowner in the Berkshires for nearly three decades, will once again lead the group, sharing her love and knowledge of this beautiful area. Tour highlights include: a performance at Barrington Stage Company of the hilarious, Taking Steps, a farce by British playwright, Alan Ayckbourn; and a classical music concert at Tanglewood, featuring Garrick Ohlson, world-renowned pianist, accompanied by the Takacs Quar-

tet, playing works by Haydn, Beethoven, and Elgar. Also scheduled are private, docent-led tours at four of the regions’ best-known venues: Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, in Williamstown, worldrenowned for its outstanding collection of impressionist paintings by Renoir, Monet, Manet, Degas, Pissaro, Toulouse-Lautrec, and many others; Norman Rockwell Museum; Naumkeag Estate and Gardens; and Crane Museum of Paper. Experience some of the region’s wonderful dining venues, including lunch at the centuriesold, iconic Red Lion Inn, located in Stockbridge.

The tour fee covers roundtrip luxury coach transportation; twonight accommodations at The Crowne Plaza Hotel, Pittsfield; two breakfasts, three lunches, and two dinners; Tanglewood concert; Barrington Stage production; museum admissions, with docent-led tours; and all gratuities. Great Neck resident, double occupancy: $895/single occupancy: $1,039; nonresident, double occupancy: $910/single: $1,054. A detailed, day-by-day itinerary for this memorable Berkshires excursion may be obtained by calling the Community Ed Office at 516-441-4949.

Club in Helen Keller 5K walk Members of South High School’s American Sign Language Club recently participated in the 5K Helen Keller Walk. They helped raise $315 for deaf-blind individuals.

Improv club set to perform Student debate club earns awards At the American Debate League Fall Classic, the North High School Debate Team won the First Place Novice High School Team Award, Second Place Advance Team Award, and Team Sweepstakes Award. Team members Shi-In (Daniel) Kim and Matthew Weinstein excelled at the recent Westchester Classic Debate Tournament where they were Quarter Finalists and also captured Fourth and Fifth Place Top Speakers,

respectively. At the South Shore Debate League Competition, Daniel and Matthew took a Second Place Award. Dr. Libra Lane is the Debate Team faculty sponsor. “The North High Debate Team joined the American Debate League this year and has been one of the most successful teams in the League,” said Richard Connelly, director of the American Debate League.

The premier performance by North High School’s Improv Club of “Thin Ice Improv,” will be presented on Monday, May 22, at 7:30 p.m., in the school Commons, 35 Polo Rd. The Improv performance replaces the Repertory Theater class presentation of past years and is the conclusion of Artfest, the annual celebration of the school’s fine and performing arts. Improv is described as being performed with “no sets, no scripts, no safety nets, but with a group of brave actors presenting a fully improvised show. You, the audience, will decide what happens by suggesting topics, settings, characters, and more, for a series of scenes that will be created on the spot! Be prepared for a whole lot of fun!”

Improv cast members include: Spencer Berman, Rayna Cooke, Leeor Elias, Skylar Epstein, Eyal Hakimi, Joshua Kahen, Solly Kasab, Zachary Lee, Alex Mousazadeh, Molly Racsko, Frederick Sion, Aral Soykan, Omeed Tartak, Aaron Young, and Elaine

Zhang. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Ilana Meredith Schikler, director/drama teacher, at ischikler@ greatneck.k12.ny.us.

That’s typical of the league.” In the bottom of the first inning, Chaminade had an early opportunity to take the lead with runners on first and third with one out. Zawol worked his way out of a jam by getting Shane Sullivan to pop out and struck out Joseph Salamone to end the inning.
