Nassau’s patronage machine



Dems, GOP share election board BY R E B ECC A K L A R Nearly two months after his shocking loss to a Democrat, and just two days shy of the end of his term, Anthony Santino resigned as Hempstead town supervisor upon his appointment to the Nassau County Board of Elections. Democrat Robert Troiano, a former senior policy adviser to North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and Nassau County Executive Laura Curran’s pick for traffic and parking violations commissioner, was appointed to a position at the Board of Elections after it was discovered that he had racked up more than $80,000 in federal income tax liens. Former North Hempstead Democratic Party Chairman Gerard Terry, currently serving time for state tax fraud, also had a job at the county agency before stepping down when he faced charges. It was one of six politically appointed taxpayer-funded jobs Terry once simultaneously held. Continued on Page 95

Inn doesn’t deserve our biz: Dems Party pulls fundraiser from NHP catering hall for hosting NRA event BY R E B ECC A K L A R The Nassau County Democrats have relocated an upcoming fundraiser from the Inn at New Hyde Park after the catering hall refused to cancel a scheduled National Rifle Associ-

ation fundraiser, Nassau County Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs said Friday. “Let me make this perfectly clear: the!NRA!is not welcome in our community, and any business who would support putting our children at risk like this does not deserve our business,”!Jacobs said in a statement. Jacobs is the latest in a long line of local Democrats standing with gun safety

advocates in protesting the catering hall’s decision to hold the event. A Nassau County Republican party spokesman said the GOP had no comment on the Democrats’ pulling their fundraiser from the inn. Jacobs said that as soon as the party found out the Inn at New Hyde Park was hosting an event for the NRA “it became very apparent to us that we could not hold our own event

there.” Jacobs said he asked the inn to cancel the NRA event, and inn officials said lawyers had advised them not to break the contract. The Oct. 22 party fundraiser will be held at a different venue, Jacobs said. “The Democratic Party is not just any association. We are a political party that represents certain values, certain principles and certain policies,” Jacobs said Continued on Page 11

Cuomo, officials kick Northwell to host off LIRR third track Biden summit Ceremonial ground breaking held for $6B project Only Long Island hospital to take part BY J E S S I C A PA R K S

On Sept. 21, the Gregory Foundation for Cancer Research will host a Biden Cancer Summit from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Northwell Health’s corporate headquarters at 2000 Marcus Ave. in New Hyde Park. Former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, will host a national summit in Washington and are encouraging communities to host local events to join the discussion. The two panels are “Navigating Cancer: Journey Beyond the Disease” and “Focus on Innovation in Cancer, 2018 and Beyond” with topics including cancer as a genetic disease, how PHOTO COURTESY OF THE OFFICE OF GOV.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo joined local officials last week at a ceremonial ground breaking to kick off the Long Island Rail Road Third Track Project that will add a track along the 9.8-mile Main Line between Floral Park and Hicksville. “Since the 1940s, people talked about adding a third track and modernizing the Main Line corridor – and now we’re actually doing it,” Cuomo said at the event last Wednesday at the Yes We Can Center in Westbury. Preliminary work has already started on the $6 billion project, which is expected to be complete by 2022. The project will create “smoother and more reliable service” for LIRR passengers and improve public safety, Cuomo said, according to a news release. “The LIRR is the backbone of the region’s economy and this expansion effort will boost growth for generations,” Cuomo said. 2 The project will eliminate seven existing street-level grade crossings along the route, including those on Covert Avenue, New Hyde Park Road and Willis Avenue. Five stations, including the New Hyde Park and Mineola stations, will be improved.

There will also be ADA-compliant elevators put in at Floral Park’s station. The project has faced pushback from residents in areas near the construction. Many have said the noise from construction will be disruptive. In Cuomo’s news release, he said the state is using a “comprehensive noise abatement program” and will build the track with advance dampening technology. The project will also include sound-reducing walls along residential areas, according to the news release. State Sen. Elaine Phillips (R-Flower Hill), whose district consists of much of the area along the Main Line, said her role is to be a “voice for the communities and residents that this project directly impacts,” and she plans to continue to advocate for them. “As we work to transform and modernize the way Long Island residents commute and build a better and stronger region – we must take into account the quality of life of those affected by these new transformations,” # Phillips said in the release. “With that foremost in mind, I look forward to improved commuting experiences as well as public safety for those in my district.”

Lipton, director of hematology/ oncology and stem cell transplant at Cohen Children’s Medical Center. “Open discussions like this can only move us closer to the goal of fully understanding, curing and perhaps preventing cancer.” The event will begin with a light breakfast and a teleconference with Jill Biden. The summit is free but with limited seating. Those interested in attending should contact Emily Morrisette by Friday at 516321-6272 or

F.P. remembers residents lost on 9/11 BY R E B ECC A K L A R If Michelle Bratton were alive today she would be 40. Her life was cut short 17 years ago when a plane hit the World Trade Center’s North Tower, just a few weeks after Bratton, 23, had started her first post-graduate marketing job in an office located in the building’s 105th floor," according to a 9/11 Remembrance Instagram post from 2017. Bratton’s parents described their daugther, a collegiate diver, as a Madonna-loving, determined spirit who loved to mentor younger girls in her sorority, Sigma Delta Tau, at the State University of New York College at Oswego, according to the post. Bratton is one of 11 Floral Park residents who died during the Sept. 11 attacks. Howard Gelling, Thomas Hetzel, Robert C. King Jr., Ronald P. Kloepfer, Brian Magee, Charles Mendez," Robert M. Regan, Billy Dean, Keith G. Fairben and Ryan D. Fitzgerald all lost their lives either working in their office or by responding to the attacks.

Their names are engraved on the village 9/11 memorial, which about 50 residents gathered around on Tuesday morning to honor and celebrate their lives. The memorial, erected in 2011, has a 9/11 relic, a twisted steel girder recovered from the World Trade Center site. For a few children and teenagers in attendance, the 2001 attacks are not a memory but a day in history. As each name was read, a member of the Floral Park Fire Department placed a rose on the monument. The Rev. Thomas Fusco, pastor at Our Lady of Victory Church, blessed the village relic. Mayor Dominick Longobardi reminded residents to be thankful for those who dedicate their lives to protecting freedom for others. “We live in the best country in the world,” Longobardi said. “We can live a promise that has been given to us by those who fought. And every day we have to remember what we have, remember that old saying – freedom is not free.” The United Methodist


A rose was placed by Floral Park Fire Department members to honor each resident who died during the Sept. 11 attacks. Church’s bells tolled at 8:46 a.m. and 9:03 a.m. to commemorate the exact moments 17 years ago the planes struck the North and South towers, respectively. The Rev. Benjamin Yoo of the Methodist church said, “We

remember the first time we heard the news.” “We remember the way our thoughts and prayers were with those families who lost loved ones,” Yoo said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with them again

today.” Although it is a solemn day, Longobardi said, “we also celebrate the lives we lost.” “May we remember them for the sacrifices they made,” he said.

Town honors 56 residents lost on 9/11 North Hempstead residents, leaders gather to remember lives taken 17 years ago BY T E R I W EST The ring of a bell echoed through North Hempstead Town Hall Tuesday morning after each of the 56 names council members recited, memorializing local individuals, many in their 30s and 40s, who died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Religious leaders, politicians, firefighters and high schoolers were among those who gathered at the town’s memorial service for the 17th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center.

Members of the Port Washington Fire Department attend the Town of North Hempstead 9/11 memorial service. to respond to the tragedy. “The moment of Sept. 11th resonated with so many people in creative ways as well as in lasting memories,” he said. “It really is a testament to the residents of our town and those throughout the country who suffered that they made every effort to remember that day and those events in verse as well as in song and in

prose.” The Rev. Victor Lewis of Friendship Baptist Church of Roslyn said that the emotions he felt during and after the tragedy were part of the reason he decided to become a pastor. “I had faith before that day but not like the day after,” he said. “I thought I had problems but I realized I didn’t have

problems the day after. I had what I believed was issues with people in my life, with friends and family, but those issues became trivial the day after.” Isma Chaudhry, the president of the Islamic Center of Long Island, spoke after him, praising Americans for developing camaraderie after the tragedy. “That was the day that strangers became the source of strength and comfort for each other,” she said. U.S. Rep. Tom Suozzi (D–Glen Cove) also spoke, with a call for Americans to remember the value of lives and to be less cynical and contrarian. “On Sept. 10, think of the things that were important that day, and then everything changed,” he said. “Wouldn’t it be great if we could recapture that feeling of how important our lives really are? What we need to do with our life. How we need to treat each other.” The St. Mary’s High School chamber choir sang “Beautiful City” from the musical “Godspell” followed by “America the Beautiful.” The service included two moments of silence, the first at 8:46 a.m. and the second at 9:03 a.m., the times that the planes struck the towers.

State A.G. subpoenas diocese records

Rockville Centre, other 7 New York districts under scrutiny for sex abuse by members BY LU K E TOR R A N C E Following a bombshell grand jury report on the Roman Catholic Church in Pennsylvania, New York has followed suit with its own civil investigation into sex abuse by members of the clergy. The eight New York dioceses — including the Diocese of Rockville Centre, which oversees 1.5 million Catholics in Nassau and Suffolk counties — confirmed that they received subpoenas from Attorney General Barbara Underwood. “We have received a subpoena and we are in the process of reviewing it with counsel,” said Sean Dolan, the director of communications for the diocese. “The Diocese of Rockville Centre has long cooperated with local law enforcement authorities in reporting and investigating child sexual abuse and we anticipate that such cooperation will continue.” The investigation is looking into how the diocese reviewed allegations of sexual abuse of minors and whether they were covered up, according to a statement released Thursday by the state attorney general’s office. The New York investigation follows a grand jury report released in Pennsylvania last month. The report detailed the alleged sexual abuse of at least 1,000 children by 300 priests over a 70-year period,


New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood. although most of the alleged abuses occurred#before 1990. The attorney general also announced on Thursday the creation of a clergy abuse hotline where anyone with information can file a complaint, which will be investigated by the state. Complaints can be submitted online at or by#calling 1-800-771-7755. In the statement, the attorney general’s of-

fice said it would seek to protect the identities of victims and witnesses. “The Pennsylvania grand jury report shined a light on incredibly disturbing and depraved acts by Catholic clergy, assisted by a culture of secrecy and coverups in the dioceses,” Underwood said in a statement.#“Victims in New York deserve to be heard as well — and#we are going to do everything in our power to bring them the justice they deserve.” Underwood will be working with district attorneys —# the only officials who have the power to convene grand juries to investigate the abuses — to investigate the allegations and prosecute cases that are within the statute of limitations. A spokeswoman for Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas said she could not comment on the specifics of Singas’ role in the state investigation. In her statement, Underwood also called for the passage of the Child Victims Act, which would give victims the ability to file civil suits until age 50 and seek criminal charges until age 28. Under current law, child victims only have until age 23 to file civil cases or bring criminal charges. “Make no mistake: the only way that justice can fully and truly be served is for the Legislature to finally pass the Child Victims Act,” Underwood said.

The law passed the state Assembly earlier this year but died in the Senate. It is opposed by the Catholic Church, the Orthodox Jewish community and the Boy Scouts of America. The Catholic Church has faced increasing pressure in the past few weeks to address the growing abuse scandal. Pope Francis recently faced accusations that he had ignored allegations of abuse against#Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, the former archbishop of Washington. The accusation — made by a former Vatican ambassador to the United States, Carlo Maria# Viganò, who called on the pope to resign — prompted a letter from#Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo, the president of the United States Conference of Bishops, calling for an investigation and a better handling of complaints. That letter was supported by Bishop John Barres, the head of the Diocese of Rockville Centre. The population of New York state is 34 percent Catholic, according to a report by The Washington Post. Only New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island have a higher percentage. In addition to New York and Pennsylvania, four other states — New Jersey, Nebraska, Illinois and Missouri — have announced that they will investigate clergy sex abuse of children.

Curran eyes tax assessment reform Nassau County executive considers fix that would scrap plan from March BY LU K E TORRANCE


Nassau County Executive Laura Curran

After beginning the process of reassessing property taxes in Nassau County — which has not been done since 2010 — County Executive Laura Curran is considering scrapping that plan and starting over. The new plan would lower the rate at which homes are assessed from .25 percent of what they’re worth to a lower figure, according to a Newsday report. What that lower figure would be has not been determined, but the new plan would help the 80,000 Nassau residents who have not challenged their tax assessments since 2010. “I made a promise to fix Nassau County’s corrupt assessment system that continues to rob taxpayers of hundreds of millions of dollars,” Curran said in a statement. “The right to grieve will always exist, but the goal of my reforms is to establish a defensible tax roll so the county can stop losing $100 million every year that should be going to parks, roads, employees and

programs.” A spokeswoman for the Curran administration said that an announcement on the new plan would be coming soon. Under the current plan, which Curran put into motion in March,!assessment increases on residential property would be limited to 6 percent annually or 20 percent over five years. The goal was to update the tax rolls, which has not been done since 2011. In the seven years since the last update, many Nassau residents challenged their tax assessments and had them lowered. This pushed the burden onto those who did not file challenges, including many lowerearning county residents. “In those [ensuing] years… we’ve seen an unfair shift in the burden of [assessments],” Curran said in March. But the plan depended on the county’s ability to win assessment challenges against wealthy property owners. Curran told Newsday that data analysis conducted over the last five months and the provisions of a

2011! court settlement showed that doing so would be difficult, which meant little would change. That belief was reinforced last week when!Nassau County Assessor David Moog sent a memo to Curran saying that the current plan could lead to mass settlements on assessment challenges or tax refunds totaling $100 million to $200 million. Curran would need to get Republican legislators on board in order to change the plan.!Frank Moroney, a spokesman for the Republican legislative majority, told Newsday that the Republicans expected Curran to stand by the original plan. “I am looking forward to working with the legislature to make the changes necessary to change this rotten system that has gone unchecked for far too long,” Curran said.!

Waterfront moratorium extension eyed Town to hold public hearing on Port Washington hold, revises rules for painting over graffiti BY R E B ECC A KLAR The North Hempstead Town Board unanimously voted last Thursday to hold a public hearing later this month to consider extending a waterfront building moratorium. The 5-0 vote, with Councilman Angelo Ferrara and Councilwoman Anna Kaplan absent, set a Sept. 27 hearing when the board will consider extending the moratorium until January 2019. The moratorium was first approved by the town last December. In June, the board extended it until Nov. 1. During the meeting, the board also unanimously approved a local law amending town code to require that paint used to cover graffiti is “the same or substantially similar color as the

The NRA fundraiser, hosted by Nassau County Friends of NRA, is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 27, at 5:30 p.m, according to the group’s website. Tickets range in price from $65, for a single ticket, to $2,000, for the Charlton Heston Table.


The Nassau County Democrats announced they have moved an event originally planned to be held at the Inn at New Hyde Park since the catering hall is hosting an NRA event. The!event features a raffle and auction with prizes including a .410 gauge

“In the wake of Parkland, Florida and so much bloodshed at the hands of firearms, it is appalling that the! NRA! would auction firearms ... so close to local schools and put lives of residents and children in harm’s way,” Jacobs said in a statement. “The notion that the!NRA!could auction firearms within feet of our schools is not only disturbing, but insane.” U.S. Rep Tom Suozzi (D-Glen Cove), North Hempstead Town Councilwoman Anna Kaplan (D-Great Neck), state Assemblyman Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove) and state Assemblyman Anthony D’Urso (D-Port Washington) have all expressed concern about the NRA event being held in Nassau. D’Urso has planned a gun safety forum, co-hosted by two local gun legislation reform groups the same day as the NRA’s event in New Hyde Park. The forum will be held at the Great Neck Library at 7 p.m. Jacobs said that his party stands “completely and diametrically opposed to the NRA and what they stand for.” “Particularly in these times with the violence and the continuous and regular shootings that we see, everyone has to take a stand,” Jacobs said.!

Top heart ranking earned again North Shore University in top 50 BY T E R I W EST


Performers at last year’s IndiaFest.

IndiaFest returns to town after 28 years Food, art, culture at North Hempstead Beach Park BY LU K E TORRANCE Twenty-eight years later, IndiaFest is returning to the place where it all began. The festival celebrating Indian art, food and culture is returning to North Hempstead Beach Park on Sunday, Sept. 23 — the place where the very first IndiaFest was held in 1990. “We love that place,” said Gunjan Rastogi, the president of the Indian Association of Long Island, which plans the event. “The beach is very beautiful and the Town of North Hempstead has been extremely helpful. They’ve really gone out of their way to help us with the paperwork and everything.” The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Parking and

admission are free. There will be about 36 vendors selling Indian arts and crafts, clothing, and jewelry. There will be Indian foods and various music and dance performances. For children, there will be face painting and crafts. The event has been held in different places on Long Island over the years and attracts visitors from as far away as New Jersey and Westchester. Due to weather, the last few IndiaFests have been held indoors. Rastogi said that this year’s festival is the first being held outdoors in a decade. “The feel when you’re outdoors is totally different; it is a much more fun setting,” she said. With the event headed back out into the sun, Rastogi" noted some of the events that could only be held outdoors.

“We are trying to do yoga on the beach because now everyone wants to do that,” she said. “Parents can bring their children and do some kite flying on the beach as well.” Rastogi said the festival began in 1990 as a way to inform Americans about the growing Indian population in the United States through exposure to food and culture from India. “Today, people in the United States know Bollywood and tandoori chicken,” she said. “It’s different now, the distance has shortened between the two countries due to technology. But it’s fun to hold this festival.” Reach reporter Luke Torrance by email at, by phone at 516-3071045, ext. 214, or follow him on Twitter @LukeATorrance

North Shore University Hospital is on a winning streak. For the second year in a row Healthgrades ranked the hospital among the top 50 in the country for successful heart bypass and heart valve surgery. The hospital in Manhasset hosts the Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital, which performs hundreds of such operations every year. “Having received such prestigious recognition from Healthgrades further demonstrates North Shore University Hospital’s unwavering commitment in providing the highest quality of care to our patients,” said Alessandro Bellucci, the hospital executive director. “North Shore’s Healthgrades awards illustrate the hospital’s long-term clinical achievements, resulting in fewer complications, lower mortality rates and better outcomes.” The hospital was among the first in Long Island, New York City and Westchester to conduct

a minimally invasive surgical procedure called transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) for patients with aortic valve stenosis. The condition is mostly seen in individuals over 60, and early treatment can help slow the disease, according to the American Heart Association. Last year, North Shore introduced the first heart transplant service on Long Island. Healthgrades, a company that analyzes the quality of physicians and health institutions, assembles the list of top hospitals for cardiac surgery annually. This year it also included North Shore in the top 5 percent of U.S. hospitals for coronary intervention and gastrointestinal care. The hospital also earned the Stroke Care Excellence Award for the seventh consecutive year.

Residents mad over 20-year-old deal BY R E B ECC A K L A R An application approved by the Town of North Hempstead 20 years ago is causing outrage among residents in the Searingtown area. Residents filled the Town Board room last Thursday to speak out against a parking lot said to fit 77 cars being constructed for an Islamic center set to be built on the corner of Shelter Rock Road and I.U. Willets Road. Supervisor Judi Bosworth said in a statement after the meeting that leaders of the Shelter Rock Islamic Center have made it known that they are in contract to acquire the 2 Shelter Rock Road property. The Islamic center is currently located in Mineola. Officials from the Islamic center did not wish to comment on the potential relocation. Residents questioned why they were never informed about the project and why there was no public hearing on the proposal. Town officials said there was a public hearing – 20 years ago when it was first approved for the North Hills Synagogue, but never acted upon At the time, it was well attended, according to Michael Levine, the town planning commissioner. The building was once home to the Boy Scouts and later the synagogue. As the 1998 plans have not been changed, the approval stands two decades later. The thin, one-way street will be “strangled with traffic” based on the proposal, Peter Heller, a Roslyn resident, said. “Speaking from myself, it is a disgrace,” Heller said. Heller, along with a handful of other residents who spoke, said he had been living in the area for more than 40 years and never received notice, not even at the time of the 1998 decision.


North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth told residents the town is not required to hold another public hearing for a decision the board granted 20 years ago that is being acted on now to build an Islamic center and accompanying parking lot. Many who didn’t come up to speak yelled out in agreement from the audience. Mark Karten, a Roslyn resident, said in an interview that he thought the unused land would be used for storm drainage.

Karten said he never received notice and only knew of the project once he saw construction beginning. Town officials said only residents who lived within 200 feet of the project would have received notice at the time. Town code has since changed to notify residents who live within 300 feet of a project, officials said. Despite residents claiming the project would cause major traffic issues and pose potential safety risks to children in the area, town officials said a traffic study was done before the project was first approved. Heller said he believes a further study should be conducted. “That’s 20 years old, that’s ancient history,” Heller said. Town Attorney Elizabeth Botwin said there is no legal basis for the town to take further action. “We are faced with a very unusual situation where the developer, the owner, took such a long time to go ahead with the development, but it was approved and something that was authorized,” Botwin said. “When you have a place of public assembly you have to supply parking and a religious facility is permitted to be constructed in a residential area.” Susan Wicker, a Roslyn resident, said she is upset because she feels there is nothing she can do. “It’s a done deal, it’s a 20-year-old done deal,” Wicker said. “As happy as you are that I’m here, I’m wasting my time.” Bosworth said she believes those building the Islamic center will want to meet and speak with the community. “I know that the Islamic center will want to be a good neighbor, and they’ll be willing to hear your concerns and accommodate them to the extent they can consistent to building a place of worship next to Shelter Rock Road,” Bosworth said.

Wrong way to make a point on guns


he New York Times published an unsigned op-ed from a senior Trump administration official last week sounding an alarm about President Donald Trump’s “amorality” and “impetuous” leadership style. Trump responded by calling on The Times to turn the author of the op-ed piece “over to the government at once!” The basis of an American newspaper turning over the name of an unnamed source to the government for writing something critical of the administration was unclear. Trump initially tweeted “TREASON?” following The Times’ publication of the op-ed. He later added, by tweet, “If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to the government at once!” Missing, however, was any crime on which to justify a newspaper being deputized. The Nassau County Democratic Party did not reach the high bar of anti-First Amendment rhetoric unleashed by Trump, but it did set at least a local standard of bad behavior" by canceling" a party fundraiser at the"Inn"of New Hyde Park. The inn’s sin? The New Hyde Park catering facility had also booked a fundraiser"and gun"auction hosted by the National" Rifle"Association. “In the wake of Parkland, Florida, and so much" bloodshed" at" the hands" of firearms, it is" appalling" that the" NRA would auction"firearms … so close to"local schools"and put"lives"of residents" and children" in harm’s way,” said Jay Jacobs, the Nassau County Democratic Committee

chairman. “Let me make this perfectly clear: the NRA is not welcome in our community, and any business who would support putting our children at risk like this does not deserve our business,” Jacobs added. Whew! So much nonsense in so few words. The regulation of firearms in the country is too lax and the NRA has consistently opposed commonsense regulations. But guns – and gun shops – are legal in the United States, which includes Nassau County. And all in Nassau County are within driving distance of schools and children. Does Jacobs want to ban all guns and gun shops? To protect the schools and children? If so, he should say so. Or is Jacobs merely suggesting that a person who wins an auction at the NRA event will be so excited that he will go out and shoot up a school? Jacobs cites Parkland, Florida, in explaining his action against the catering facility. That is"where in February a gunman opened fire at" Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, killing 17 students and staff members and injuring 17 others. But what makes this even more horrific is how the Parkland shooting fit with mass shootings of young children in their classrooms, worshippers in church, concertgoers, clubgoers and moviegoers yet has done nothing to change the group’s policies. Which, in turn, fits with all the killings, suicides and accidental shootings that take place every year in this country. There were 38,658 gun deaths in 2016 alone, according to the Centers for Disease Control and

Editorial Cartoon

Prevention. So it shouldn’t have taken the shooting at Parkland – as horrific as it was – to spur outrage and action. More puzzling is Jacobs’ claim that by renting a room a catering facility was “putting our children at risk” and “does not deserve our business.” How so? By allowing people who support the NRA’s policies to gather together to express their personal beliefs? What about a newspaper that runs an ad promoting the NRA event or publishes a letter to the editor supporting the NRA’s policies? Or what about Democratic elected officials who have supported the NRA with their votes? Of the 52 U.S. senators who have an A-minus NRA rating or higher – four are Democrats. Does Jacobs oppose"Sens. Joe

Manchin III (D-W.Va.), Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) for supporting NRA policies? Or the five other Democratic and Independent senators who did not receive an F grade from the NRA – including Sen. Bernie Sanders? If the Nassau County Democratic Party will financially punish a catering hall for booking an NRA event, will it oppose senators who cast votes in support of NRA policies? Jacobs can answer that question after the expected confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court justice and, perhaps, the restriction or outright elimination of abortion rights provided under Roe v. Wade. And people wonder why Republicans hold the presidency, both

houses of Congress and most statehouses. Jacobs’ decision to financially coerce a local business for booking a room to an organization seeking to exercise First Amendment rights to assemble and speak is undemocratic and un-American. He would be much better served by explaining why the NRA is wrong than trying to silence the group – and punish any venue that lets it speak. We wonder what Jacobs and members of the Nassau County Democratic Party would say if an anti-abortion group demanded that a catering facility cancel a Planned Parenthood fundraiser. And if the catering facility buckled to such pressure. We’re confident the president would be happy.

Richie Kessel: At it again at county IDA?


ichie Kessel, Chairman of Nassau’s Industrial Development Authority (IDA), was known during his tenures as C.E.O. of LIPA and the New York Power Authority, to flout the rules to curry favor with politicians, lobbyists, consultants. Kessel’s tendency to “push the envelope” is why investigative reports by Assemblyman Richard Brodsky, the State Attorney General and the State Inspector General castigated him. His misbehavior also explains why two Democratic governors fired him— Spitzer at LIPA and Cuomo at NYPA. Sadly, Kessel was redeemed by County Executive Laura Curran, for reasons only God knows, when she appointed him to the IDA board and then elevated him to the Chairmanship. Since becoming IDA Chairman—a volunteer, non-salaried job—Kessel appears to have reverted to old habits. Unhappy with what he considered a shabby office, Kessel pestered County officials until he was

given luxurious offices in the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building. That’s only the beginning. It appears that Kessel is pushing the envelope once again at taxpayer expense. But first some background information. To create jobs and to enhance New York’s economic base, the governor and State Legislature approved in 1969 the Industrial Development Act that permits local municipalities to establish agencies that “promote, develop, encourage and assist in the acquiring, constructing, reconstructing, improving, maintaining, equipping and furnishing industrial, manufacturing, warehousing, commercial, research and recreation facilities….” In brief, IDAs have the right to give away school and other local taxes, in theory, to create jobs. The foregone taxes are made up at the expense of all other local taxpayers. Clear enough? Not for Kessel.

GEORGE J. MARLIN On The Right True to form, Kessel sidestepped the laws intent when he announced in July that the IDA “is looking to grow the County’s stock of affordable housing” and expects to hire “a consultant to help the agency work with private developers….” His flawed rationale for this questionable action: “If you’re creating more affordable housing, it makes it easier to attract new businesses.” Needless to say, Newsday reported developer groups “ap-

plauded the IDA’s efforts.” A recent plea by the Association for a Better Long Island (ABLI)—a group that represents the real estate industry—proves that Kessel’s position will benefit large owners at the expense of Nassau middle class homeowners. In August, ABLI asked Albany to change the review process for housing projects. ABLI “requested that IDA-supported housing projects be judged on the number of units created, not the number of permanent jobs created and/or retained.” ABLI’s spokesman argued “the reporting requirements are a disincentive for IDAs to support affordable housing.” Interesting, don’t you think? Coincidence? I think not. In early September, Curran and Kessel announced a $2.3 million tax giveaway of Oceanside and East Rockaway School Districts’ property taxes as well as sales and other taxes. This huge shift of taxes from a wellheeled housing developer to middle class taxpayers will not

create the hundreds of jobs created by a traditional IDA project but only up to seven non-union jobs for a market rate apartment deal. (Coincidentally, the owner was represented by the former law firm of felon Dean Skelos and indicted Hempstead Councilman, Ed Ambrosino.) Kessel is giving tax breaks to developers who concede they don’t create local jobs, while overtaxed residents who improve their homes with extensions, dormers, etc., get tax increases. Does that seem fair to you? It’s unfair, because there is no reason to believe that rental housing in Nassau County requires subsidies from the middle class to be built. There’s more. The IDA issued in June a Request for Statements of Qualifications (RFQ) seeking firms or persons to, among other things, “develop a ‘clean energy’ development plan for the Agency to help the Agency identify opportunities related to the developContinued on Page 77


Oh no, not another anonymous letter!


pparently, it is now the fashion to send complaints about one’s superiors to the Op-Ed sections of newspapers for publication. Anonymously! Perhaps this explains why similar materials have now been sent to “The Lighter Side.” The following is a transcript of an audio file we recently received: Speaker Number One: The world needs to know about the massive injustices and mind-boggling incompetence of the usual author of this column. We wish to reassure you, her readers, that there are indeed “adults in the room” who are working to thwart and frustrate her every move. I can say this quite literally, having become an adult in the eyes of the law just weeks ago, myself. Although of course I am not literally “in the room” at the moment, having gone back to college. Still, there is much to address. For example, she never gets my name right! She’s known me all my life — she gave me that name, for Pete’s sake — why

can’t she get it right? And yet, every time she calls for me, she says my brother’s name first! “You know what?” says someone we shall call Speaker Two. “She does that to me, too!” “Hey, this is my anonymous letter — get out of here and make your own! Another thing — I was always the one who had to take out the trash!” “Well, I can’t help it if I was in college while you were still in high school!” “All I’m saying is, you owe me! But back on topic — another serious matter is how all the plants in the garden cry out for relief from our mother’s malicious neglect. We lost most of the raspberry bushes because she refused to water them….” “It was a weather alert!” interrupts yet another Speaker, Number Three. “It wasn’t safe to go out there! And sweetie, I’m glad we’re all on this together because I need to break it to you gently, it might be too late for the cherry tree — we might have to take it out.” “I keep telling you, Mom, it’s a plum tree!”


A Look on the Lighter Side “Well, they look like cherries to me.” A fourth voice says: “Boys, let’s move on here. There’s a lot of ground to cover. Judy, you promised to stay out of this!” “I know. But sometimes I just have to defend myself!” “My turn now,” says Speaker Two. “She keeps erasing my shows! Every time I come home, she’s obliterated another batch from the DVR. And for what? Murder mysteries? How many shows about dead people can one person watch?”

“I don’t know, sweetie, you tell me! At least in my shows, the corpses stay dead! They don’t get up and start walking!” “Oh, that reminds me — whenever I do watch a show with you, Mom, you keep pausing it to look up the actors!” “That’s because I can’t remember where I remember them from.” “It’s so annoying! As for remembering things — it’s hopeless! She never knows where anything is — like her glasses! We gave her fancy glasses strings, every Mother’s Day for years, but she never used them. She’d just leave her glasses on the microwave, or in the bathroom, or right on top of her head! Then she’d come in demanding, ‘Have you seen my glasses? I can’t find them.’” “‘They’re right on your head,’ we kept telling her — but she never learned. Of course, it might be easier to find things in that house if she ever got rid of stuff.” “I know,” says Speaker One, who by this time you have probably figured out is the younger brother. “I kept trying to sneak

things she never uses out of the house. Like when I said I needed pots and pans — for my dorm room. But there’s not much I can do about books. She notices when I take those!” “I know, I tried that, too,” says Speaker Two. “Here’s another thing. Her knee-jerk antitechnology bias deprived us both of years of video games, and keeping up with friends. And she doesn’t have the slightest understanding of how cell phones work. ‘I’ll keep this call short,’ she says, ‘I don’t want to run up your bill.’ “‘It’s free, Mom,’ I keep telling her.” “‘That can’t possibly be true,’ she answers.” The tape stops abruptly at this point. We have agreed to anonymity for all who submitted complaints. Nevertheless, it seems fair to observe, in the words of Shakespeare, “Oh, how sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless ‘adult in the room.'” Especially when you have raised them to adulthood, yourself!

Lots of ways to connect in old(er) age


.M Forster wrote: “Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer.” Suzanne Gordon, in her provocative book, “Lonely in America,” and Philip Slater in “The Pursuit of Loneliness” punctuate Forster’s emphasis on the value of personal relationships. In his book, “Howard’s End” (written a century ago), Forster was already warning about how the frenetic pace of life, bolstered by advancing technologies, detracts from building caring, empathetic and supportive relationships. For those of us who are older (80 and beyond), the demands of jobs may have decreased, but where do we stand regarding our “human capital” — the depth of associations we have built with relatives and friends over the years? As Gail Sheehy emphasized in “Passages,” most of us have highlighted achievements in our jobs and careers. How much time was left to cultivate relationships? How many people even try? Both Gordon and Slater em-

phasize that many people have a host of reasons (beyond “time poverty”) for not seeking closer ties with relatives and friends. Indeed, Gordon concludes that many Americans are “intimacy anorexics.” Years ago Harvard scholar, Robert Putnam, punctuated this view with his study, aptly titled “Bowling Alone.” Is it harder for older folks to cultivate deep and sustained relationships than it is for younger people? I would contend that we elders have many advantages to do so — what we need is the will “to connect.” There are many ways to build close, enduring and gratifying ties, regardless of age. They require investing one’s self in talk and interaction with others. Many may have concerns about risks of rejection, or loss privacy? But not to try means being more isolated, and lacking a chance for the joy and comforts of caring relationships. A creative idea four years ago was developing “virtual villages;” more than 100 emerged in 40 states. (There is also a Village to Village International.) The major focus (in ways,

MICHAEL D’INNOCENZO Out of Left Field similar to AARP) is to help older people connect with others their own age as their spouses die, they divorce, or friends and relatives relocate to other areas. The Village website indicates: “Village members experience reduced isolation, increased independence, and enhanced purpose of life.” Volunteers go to assist in actual communities: “These feet on the street resources, focused on social determinants of health, positively improve population health.” Membership requires an annual fee, but as with AARP, there are many cost-effective benefits because of attractions of scale

sales. Most dramatic is the description of “armies of volunteers who help lower costs for members by doing yard work, picking up prescriptions, taking members shopping.” Dr. Marc Agronin, author of “How We Age” notes, “As people get older, they face the major dilemma of isolation. Having a local network of people to engage with opens up whole new worlds. It’s about discovering your strengths and the joy of living.” Virtual village studies show satisfaction for elders staying in their own homes while finding a variety of ways to connect with other folks. Closer to our North Shore, a few days ago 160 people came to Mannie Corman’s 100th birthday party. (Having that many people who still know you in old age is remarkable in itself.) Mr. Corman wore a black shirt with an inscription: “Vintage 1918: Aged to Perfection.” But this was no ordinary birthday party! As guests assembled for the brunch, a curtain was drawn and out came a flower girl with a ring, followed by Mannie (now in a tux), along with his long-time

girlfriend, Judith (age 76) to be married. Their wedding song was “Young at Heart.” The rabbi who conducted the services for the oldest groom he ever married said: “People like Mannie and Judith recognize the importance of each and every day. They don’t worry about tomorrow. They may think about yesterday, but they concentrate on today.” Judith’s 43-year old son said of Mannie: “You look at him and you think, ‘He’s an old man,’ but he’s so funny with these amazing stories. They’re both adventurers, and they love that in each other.” This friendship, since 1999, blossomed into deep romance that survived a few years of conflict about where to live. Mannie, understandably, did not want to leave Brooklyn, while Judith had ties with grandchildren and friends in her suburban community. But true love found trade-off paths forward. Their wedding song continued: “Fairy tales can come true; it can happen to you if you are young at heart.”

Healthy schools, healthy children


s children return to school this month, their safety is uppermost on many parent’s minds. The meaning of “safe” schools conjures up different things to different parents, but I think we can all agree that we want our children to be safe from violence, cyberbullying and drugs in their classrooms. For those of us in the environmental health field, a safe school also means a place free from lowlevel chronic exposures to toxic chemicals and radiation. Think of it this way – school is a child’s workplace, a place where they spend up to eight hours a day, five days a week, week after week, month after month. Harmful environmental exposures that occur in schools can have a profound and lasting impact on a child’s short and long-term health. So how can we ensure that school districts are taking steps to reduce toxins in and around their buildings? Some school exposures are well understood, but others may not be as obvious. Take exhaust from idling vehicles for example. Diesel exhaust from school buses contains more than forty hazardous air pollutants, and the Environmental Protection Agency says there is no safe level of exposure. Diesel exhaust has been linked to an increased risk of asthma and other respiratory diseases, cardiovascular problems and cancer.

The state Education Department has issued regulations prohibiting any idling of school buses on school grounds, but as with all laws and regulations, enforcement is sometimes lacking. Signs posted where buses drop off and pick up children are good reminders, as are dashboard signs reminding drivers that New York State has a “no idling” policy. Diesel exhaust is not the only health threat our children face at school. Unlike most of our homes, schools are cleaned every day, using disinfectants, surface cleaners and floor care products. Some very harsh industrial chemicals are contained in these products, which can linger in the air and as residue on desks, cafeteria tables, bathroom surfaces and floors. Although children with asthma and allergies are most affected, any child can exhibit symptoms, such as respiratory symptoms, sore throats, headaches, itchy eyes and skin rashes if they are exposed. Many health experts believe that products used to clean and disinfect our schools should be biobased (made from substances derived from plants, minerals, forestry or marine materials) and even if used undiluted, which is often the case, present no potential for harm. The USDA Bio-Preferred Program or the ChildSafe School Program of Grassroots Environmental Education have the highest standards and have listed the safest

PATTI WOOD Earth Matters

products to use in schools. New York State passed a law regarding the use of green cleaning products in schools, but the petrochemical industry quietly inserted a clause making the entire law optional. As a result, some schools are following the law; others are not. But here is some good news! In New York, we have passed the only comprehensive ban on the use of pesticides on school grounds, including playgrounds and playing fields. This law, first and only in the nation, prohibits the use of pesticides at all schools, K-12, including daycare centers. There are exemptions for poison ivy and other “public health” threats, but overall it has been a successful law. That said, even as we have worked hard to find solutions for some threats to our children’s health at schools, new threats are

emerging. Three new environmental exposure issues that have come under increasing scrutiny in the past few years are LED lighting, wireless radiation and synthetic turf. LED light bulbs are typically specified for school lighting and it’s easy to understand why. Compared to incandescent lighting, they use a lot less energy and therefore reduce operating costs. But medical researchers are beginning to warn of an unexpected problem: LED lights contain high levels of “blue” light, and exposure to this short wavelength, high energy light from lighting fixtures, tablets and computers can have an adverse impact on the retina of the eye. Children are particularly vulnerable, so it is recommended that schools choose bulbs with a lower color temperature, such as 3,000K or below, not those harsh “white” daylight bulbs in the 5,000K6,000K range. Better yet, schools could go with long-life incandescent bulbs. No risk. Microwave radiation from wireless devices in schools is a difficult issue to address because of the tremendous push toward screen learning, the popularity of wireless devices and the inherently slow pace of science regarding the biological impacts of exposure to RF radiation. While scientists cannot yet prove an absolute cause-and-effect

relationship between exposure and disease, they are closing in on how wireless radiation impacts our nervous and reproductive systems, damages DNA and may cause harm to the developing fetus. More careful placement of routers, turning them off when not in use and most importantly, installing Ethernet connections whenever possible will reduce exposure risks. Finally, a word about synthetic turf. Many schools are installing these fields, spending millions of dollars to have kids play on 40,000 old ground-up tires, inhaling the dust and enduring searing heat and toxic fumes. The EPA has withdrawn it safety assurance for these fields, the state Health Department is reconsidering its assurance of safety, and more and more communities are thinking twice before spending the money for a synthetic turf field. Similar problems are found with recycled rubber tire playground surfaces. More about this in a future column. So, is your child’s school a healthy school? As a parent, you have the right to know who is making decisions that impact the health of your child, and how those decisions are being made. You can learn more about the science behind these exposures – and the solutions that are available at TheChildSafeSchool. org.


Respecting dignity of working person


y now I imagine you’ve heard all about “The Cosby Show” actor Geoffrey Owens who was job-shamed for working at Trader Joe’s. If you haven’t heard or just to refresh: a customer recognized him, snapped a few unflattering photos of him bagging potatoes and sold it to a tabloid news outlet that gave it a derisive can-you-believe-what-he’sdoing-now hook. If you are a parent, this is a great story to share and discuss with your kids. If you are a young person still in school it is an important lesson to absorb, store away and preserve so you can come back to it. You might find that you will need it one day.

Although Yale graduate Owens admitted to feeling humiliated by being exposed in such a disdainful manner, he said that he was not embarrassed about having a side job at Trader Joe’s and that many working actors need to supplement their income to help support themselves and their families. Social media picked up his cause, which led to myriad media appearances and a viral social media presence. He used the opportunity to give voice to the dignity of work. Here is what he said about that in a Sept. 4 Time magazine video interview: “The fact that I, as the guy from ‘The Cosby Show,’ was shamed about working at Trader Joe’s, that story is going to move on, that’s gonna


pass. What I hope doesn’t pass is this new recognition, this current sensitivity people are feeling about work and about people working. I hope what continues to resonate is the idea

that one job is not better than another. A certain job might pay more, might have better benefits and might look better on paper, but essentially one kind of work is not better, superior to another kind of work and that we reevaluate that whole idea and we just start honoring the dignity of work and respecting the dignity of the working person.” Ironically, Owens’ job-shaming experience led to thousands of tributes on Twitter, a new acting job with producer-director Tyler Perry and offers of cash gifts from celebrities like rapper Nicki Minaj, all of whom were so moved by Owens. I found the story to be personally uplifting; and, not because Owens benefited with renewed notoriety and a promis-

ing new acting job, but because of his humanity and the dignity he displayed in representing working stiffs all across America, regardless of their stripe or station in life. Bravo Geoffrey Owens. Well done!

How L.I.’s schools could save environment It’s a fact that Nassau and Suffolk counties have some of the poorest air quality in the state. This negatively affects Long Island resident’s ability to breathe and it’s not going to get better any time soon…unless we all work together to change it. To that end, I’ve come up with a solution, utilizing the roughly 30 million square feet of rooftops that encompass all 124 school districts throughout Long Island’s public-school buildings. When a school district applies to the New York State Education Department for aid for a solar panel capital project, certain qualifications must be met, the most important being the project’s capital costs must pay for themselves through energy savings earned on or before the prerequisite 18-year time frame. In short, savings in the electric bill must cover the bond payments so it can stand on its own as a self-sustaining project. Let’s take a look at a test case of a public school solar energy project in Long Beach. Long Beach Public Schools are in the process of getting ap-

proval for a $5.5 million, 1.9 megawatt solar project, with a projected annual savings of $309,000, that has a projected stand-alone payback of 17.8 years. This project falls neatly within NYSED’s required 18year time frame. The beauty of the Long Beach project is that it qualifies for 32.4 percent NYSED aid, which will provide the district with a positive revenue stream of over $119,488 per year for 15 years all the while paying off the bonded cost of the solar panels through the savings from their lower electric bills. The number of homes powered by a megawatt of solar energy depends on a location’s average sunshine, electricity consumption, temperature and wind. Nationally, it’s roughly 150-165 homes per MW depending on where you live. Using the national average, Long Beach will be using sunshine to replace the fossil-fueled power of roughly 310 homes. As a conservative estimate, this will keep approximately 1900 tons of global warming carbon dioxide gases from entering the atmosphere. For the sake of round num-


All Things Political bers, let’s imagine we can get 100 of Long Island’s 124 public schools to work together through a massive energy performance contract to install solar panels over the course of a few years. That would generate almost 200 MW of power, enough to power roughly 31,000 homes and save 190,000 tons carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere, thereby protecting the air we breathe from fossil fuel produced electricity. Every participating school would be provided with a monitor that summarizes the green energy created and greenhouse gases saved. If the monitor is

placed by the entrance to a school, all students will see firsthand how"well the solar panels work in all types of weather. Each school district gets capital project reimbursement from NYSED at different rates. Wealthy districts get 6 percent-10 percent reimbu, however,however poorer districts get ratios as high as 90 percent or more. Using Long Beach as the model for an average school, if 100 school districts were to participate, this would mean roughly $11,950,000 per year, for 15 years, for public education Island wide. Not too shabby! One concern of school districts is of voided roof warranties, but it hasn’t happened. Many roofing manufacturers, such as Verisco or Carlisle, offer warranty continuation certificates for solar projects. That being said, not a single roof warranty has been breached by a public school solar project in the New York Metro area. Another concern has been what happens if a roof needs to be replaced before an installation of solar panel’s 18-year life expectancy?

The answer is simple. Solar companies use ballasted solar installations that can be easily taken apart, temporarily relocated and reinstalled like an erector set. The cost of removal and reconstruction of a solar array during a roof replacement is minimal, and is baked into a solar project. Keep in mind that if all 124 school districts worked together through a request for proposal, the economies of scale would drive the price down, fueling substantial price savings. If the project is successful and 100 public schools sign on, most of the 430,000 Long Island K-12 students would see solar panels on their schools every day, thus educating them to become good stewards of renewable energy. This model could and would be easily replicated throughout the country. In summary, solar panels provide clean and green energy at no additional cost, raise much needed revenue for public schools, and teach our children that solar power is an important tool to mitigate global warming. Let’s do this!


Some legal advice heading off to college


our 18-year-old is going to college. Despite what you may feel, she will now be considered an adult in the eyes of the law and university. Your legal rights to make decisions on behalf of your child are entirely changed the moment she turns 18; it’s important you are prepared for what this means once she leaves home. You may still pay for everything in your child’s life, but the reality is you no longer have complete access to her financial, educational, or health records. However, all is not lost; with a little bit of planning you will be able to establish some legal authority to make important financial and health decisions for your child until she is entirely independent. Before you unpack those extra-long twin sheets and set up her microwave and mini fridge it

would be wise to set up a healthcare proxy and power of attorney to be prepared for anything that happens along the way. You may be asking yourself what is a healthcare proxy and why do I need one when my child is perfectly healthy? It’s the same reason why you have insurance and (hopefully) a will prepared: unforeseen events will always happen. It’s wise to take every precaution now so that in the case of an emergency you can tackle things head on. The healthcare proxy will allow your child to appoint you or another trusted adult to make medical decisions for her in the event she is unable to herself. This healthcare proxy should also include HIPPA language, which would enable the doctor to disclose vital medical information to you. Illness can happen more quickly than you think and when

you are towns, and in some cases states, away from your child you will want information as quickly as possible. I learned of a story a few years ago that began when a couple dropped off their excited 18-year-old daughter at a highranking university across the country. Both parents stayed in a nearby hotel for a few days to make sure that their child had adequately settled in before making their way back home. Three weeks later, an RA called to inform them their daughter was taken to the hospital with a serious case of the flu where she was promptly admitted. The RA was no longer there as she had to get back to her shift, and their daughter and was too ill to speak on the phone. Unfortunately, these wellmeaning parents hadn’t thought to setup a healthcare proxy, leaving the doctors and nurses un-

able to disclose any information on her status citing strict HIPPA laws that protect patient confidentiality. The parents frantically called their lawyer on their way to the airport in extreme distress. They were leaving on the first plane they could book and wanted his help to have access to their daughter’s medical information. He was able to prepare a healthcare proxy for them, but without their daughter’s signature, the papers would be useless until they landed and had her sign in the presence of witnesses. In the end, their daughter recovered after a week in the hospital and two more weeks of bedrest, but the ordeal would have been much less fraught and anxiety provoking if they had had immediate access to her medical information."""" But, your child’s physical health isn’t the only contingency

you should prepare for; her financial health should be equally considered. If your child decides to study abroad during her time as an undergraduate, a durable power of attorney will enable you to wire money from your child’s account to her or even sign important documents — such as a lease for a place to live — in her absence. While these may seem like trivial things now, you don’t want to be stuck in a last-minute situation powerless to lend any assistance.""" All of these legal preparations will make your life infinitely easier once the school year begins, so don’t forget to put these documents on your to do list before the semester begins.

Town getting $1M for transportation BY JA N E LL E C L AUS E N The Town of North Hempstead will get $1 million in federal funding for Project Independence’s transportation program to assist senior residents and those with disabilities, officials said last Tuesday. Project Independence, founded in 2006, is an initiative managed by the town’s Department of Services for the Aging that aims to help seniors continue living in their own communities. It offers support groups, social programs, health assistance and transportation. Project Independence’s transportation program extended to residents with disabilities in 2017, following a push by the Disability Advisory Committee and Town Board members unanimously voting in favor. “It is so important that our residents are able to retain their independence by maintaining their mobility and their abil-

ity to age in place,” Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth said. The $1 million grant will come from the Federal Transit Administration’s 5310 Program, which provides funding to states to aid nonprofit groups meet the transportation needs of senior adults or those with disabilities, according to its website. “This grant from the FTA will enable us to continue to fund our transportation programs over the next three years,” Bosworth said. “Our seniors, as well as residents with disabilities, will be able to access free taxi rides for grocery shopping and discounted taxi rides for medical appointments.” According to town officials, Project Independence has assisted over 50,000 senior residents. For more information about the town’s transportation programs, Project Independence, or any other program, call 311.

Police to teach teens about school risks Ryder to host forum at Hofstra on cyberbullying, active shooters, drug addiction BY T E R I W EST The Nassau County Police Department will host a forum to address issues of school safety, including active shooters, drug addiction and cyberbullying, on Sept. 25 at Hofstra University. Speakers will also teach attendees about “stop the bleed,” a procedure for administering first aid to shooting victims. The forum is intended for children and young adults from sixth grade through college because they tend to be at risk, said Nassau County police detective Maureen Roach. For months, Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder has been leading an effort to hold community meetings to educate the public about the dangers of drugs. He thought a forum would be a good way to expand on the program and has been working closely with County Executive Laura Curran to prepare it. “The School Safety Forum is part of our ongoing efforts to ensure the safety of our communities and educational institutions,” Curran said in a written statement. “We will continue to work together with our schools, community organizations, and the Commissioner’s Community Council to improve communication, col-


Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder laboration, cross training and education.” The Police Department hopes to draw at least 1,500 students and adults to the event, Roach said. “It’s a very important meeting,” she said. “It’s things that really do affect our society today that can be changed and corrected if young adults are informed.”

Speakers will include Ryder, Curran, District Attorney Madeline Singas," Jeffrey Reynolds, president of the Family and Children’s Association, and Nassau County Police Department experts. The Police Department revamped an initiative earlier this year to more fully address the issue of drug addiction by

encouraging awareness and education about the issue while strengthening enforcement. The enforcement aspect of the program involves the department conducting arrests of drug dealers while offering treatment and diversion programming for individuals who experience overdoses. The first community the department took the initiative to was Massapequa. “We saturated the community with enforcement, made many arrests and then went 60 days later,” Roach said. “Drug overdoses had significantly decreased.” The initiative is called Operation Natalie, named after Natalie Ciappa, a high school student from Massapequa who died from a drug overdose 10 years ago. Her father, Victor Ciappa, might speak at the forum, Roach said. The forum will begin at 7 p.m. at the David S. Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex in Uniondale. Every young adult in attendance will receive a raffle ticket for the opportunity to win one of 25 gift certificates funded by the Nassau County Police Department Foundation.

Great Neck Adult Learning Center graduates have earned citizenship, English proficiency and high school equivalence diplomas.

G.N. Adult Learning Center gets $450K Grant will fund h.s. equivalency, literacy programs BY JA N E LL E C L AUS E N The Great Neck Public Schools Adult Learning Center received $450,000 from the state Education Department, school officials announced on Thursday, which will go toward its high school equivalency and English literacy programs. The funding stems from a Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act grant, which aims to provide adult education and literacy services to help people who are out of school become literate and economically self-sufficient. This grant will fund the English as a New Language and High School Equivalency programs from July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2021. “The Great Neck Adult Learning Center provides a unique opportunity for adult students to improve their English proficiency skills or earn a high school equivalency diploma,” Errin Hatwood, director of the Adult Learning Center, said in a statement. “This multi-year WIOA grant will allow us to continue providing our students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access college

and navigate an ever-changing workforce.” Exact registration numbers for the Adult Learning Center are unclear, but 31 people graduated with high school equivalence degrees and 18 from its English as a New Language program in June. Also among the center’s courses are a conversation class, book club, citizenship test preparation, computer courses and Crossroads Cafe, according to the center’s website. “Of equal importance, the award will be used to offset our reliance on school district funds,” Hatwood said. The grant application, which took approximately four months to complete, was compiled by a team of guidance counselors, teachers, office staff members and the program director at the Adult Learning Center. The center is located at 105 Clover Drive in Great Neck. For more information, please contact the Adult Learning Center at 516-441-4950, or visit its website at

NHP State Farm to close Office closure announced in 2017 will soon take effect BY R E B ECC A K L A R A State Farm office in New Hyde Park is expected to close by the end of November, according to a company representative. Employees were notified in January 2017 to give them time to “make personal and professional decisions,” spokeswoman Anna Bryant said.# “We understand that these changes can have a significant

impact on our most important resource, our employees. We would not be where we are today if it were not for our agents and employees, and that is why we work to assist them throughout any change,” Bryant said. Employees were given the opportunity to apply for open positions in other locations, Bryant said. The office employs 82 people, according to Newsday. The State Farm office is lo-

cated at 1985 Marcus Ave. “To remain competitive and adapt to the needs of our customers, we must continuously plan for the future,” Bryant said. “State Farm is gaining efficiency through streamlining and improving processes, leveraging technology, and concentrating employees in larger locations.” In May 2017, State Farm announced that 11 offices across the country would close by 2021.

The Nassau County Industrial Development Agency has granted another 10 years in tax breaks to keep the#NPD Group in Port Washington. “They had a 10-year PILOT which is scheduled to expire on Dec. 31,” said#Joseph J. Kearney, the executive director of the Nassau IDA, referring to an agreement for payments in lieu of taxes. “In order to renovate their building and commit to maintaining their jobs, and to add jobs, they asked the IDA to basically extend that PILOT for another 10 years.” The NPD Group, a market research firm with headquarters at# 900 West Shore Road, employs more than 1,000 people at 27 offices around the globe. More than half of those employees are based in Port Washington — currently 623 — and Kearney said the company pledged to hire another 11 workers should the tax exemption be granted. “They had the ability and said they could move [the jobs] to other facilities that they had outside the state,” he said.# The new agreement, which begins on Jan. 1, freezes the property tax rate for three years before increases of 0.73 percent each year for the next seven years, Kearney said. According to analysis in the IDA application, the NPD Group would pay $640,846 in lieu of taxes each of the first three years, which would increase to $674,319 by 2028. According to the NPD Group application, the company paid $832,740 in 2018 as part of its current PILOT agreement but said that the taxes based on the property’s assessed value would be only $640,000. A company attorney told Newsday that the deal was trying to return the pay-

ments to “the right level.” As part of the agreement, the NPD Group will begin a $19.67 million project that will renovate its Port Washington headquarters and update the information technology equipment, according to the NPD Group’s application submitted to the IDA in May. The IDA approved a sales tax exemption of up to $1.7 million for the purchase of equipment and materials for the renovation, Kearney confirmed. In the application submitted to the IDA, NPD Group#CFO Thomas A. Lynch made several threats to leave Nassau should the tax breaks not be approved. “Without such benefits, NPD would look to expand one of its existing facilities outside of New York state, either domestically or internationally, where the construction costs and the expense of operating the facility would be significantly less than in Nassau County,” he wrote. But not everyone was thrilled about the exemption. According to Michael Raniere, the attorney for the Roslyn school district, the tax exemptions would cost the district#$200,000, “which will have to be borne by the other taxpayers,” he told Newsday. Although the headquarters is located in Port Washington, Roslyn was the only school district listed on the NPD Group’s application. But Kearney said the high salaries paid by the NPD Group — the average salary ranges from $67,458 for administrative workers to $180,517 for management — justifies the tax exemptions to keep the jobs in Nassau. “It’s a lot of money,” he said.

Sewanhaka celebrates teachers, staff Sewanhaka Central High School District welcomed its teaching staff back to school on Sept. 4 in the auditorium at Sewanhaka High School. Educators from around the district received inspiration from building leaders, including Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Kathleen Sottile, who shared how integral the district’s teachers are to the student body. “It is not an exaggeration that an awesome teacher can change a student’s life, and for some of our students you will be the most influential role model they have,” Sottile said. The professional staff also heard from Board of Education President David Del Santo, Sewanhaka Federation of Teachers President Joseph Grossi, Sewanhaka Central Council of PTAs President Marie Saint Vil and Superintendent Ralph Ferrie, who expressed his gratitude to the educators and his hope for the upcoming school year.


Sewanhaka Central High School District honored those who have served the district for 25 years on opening day. “My dream this year is that you and your students think of school as a place where communities of learners gather to do interesting work that matters. As you greet your students’ tomorrow be certain to help them

learn, smile and belong,” Ferrie said. The school communities also celebrated staff members with 25 years of service to the district including" Assistant Superintendent for Personnel and

Administration John Capozzi and Elmont Memorial typist clerk Jeanine Salierno. Floral Park Memorial’s audio-visual helper Marinela Crudo, world languages teacher Veronica Powers-Scollo, physi-

cal education teacher Michael Spina and social studies teacher Wendy White celebrated 25 years of service. New Hyde Park Memorial’s special education teacher Lisa Basil, chairperson of social studies Thomas Galvin and special education teacher Marjorie Nemorin-Lyn celebrated 25 years of service. Sewanhaka High School’s technology teacher John Koscinski and English teacher Karen Walsh celebrated 25 years of service. Recipients of the Superintendent’s Teacher of the Year award – Elmont Memorial special education teacher Colleen Brown, Floral Park Memorial mathematics teacher Lisa Clark, H. Frank Carey world languages teacher Joanne Molino, New Hyde Park Memorial social studies teacher Renee Madigan and Sewanhaka social studies teacher Michael Sakowich – were also recognized.

First day of pre-K at NHP-GCP For the first time since the program’s inception, Universal Pre-K will be housed at Manor Oaks School in the New Hyde Park-Garden City Park School District this school year. The SCOPE-run program kicked off on Sept. 5, bringing fun and educational activities to the district’s pre-K students. According to Superintendent Jennifer Morrison, the change in location was important to the district because it provides the youngsters an opportunity to get acclimated to the school building and familiar with daily routines. In addition, it allows kindergarten

and pre-K teachers a chance to work together to improve educational outcomes. The students in both the morning and afternoon classes on the first day listened

to books read aloud by their teachers. They also played with toys, sang songs, enjoyed a snack and played outside on the playground.

Herricks students head into 2018-19 The 2018-19 school year is under way in Herricks Public Schools, which welcomed students into facilities on Sept. 4. Herricks High School unveiled its newly renovated cafeteria and kitchen that was part of the school bond’s second phase. At the elementary schools, buses, staff members and parents pulled into smoother parking lots that were resurfaced during the summer and walked up to new exterior doors via repaired sidewalks and curbs. Denton Avenue School’s entry loop was replaced to facilitate better traffic flow. Districtwide, all classroom doors are now equipped with “smart locks” to ensure safety. Fencing, parking lot resurfacing at the community center, renovations to the middle school athletic fields, and stage lighting and curtain replacements in the high school auditorium were all carried out thanks to state and county grants. Many students were greeted by new administrators. Herricks Middle School welcomed Brian McConaghy as principal and Matthew Hubbard as an assistant principal, while Joan Keegan has taken on her role as Herricks High School principal. At Denton Avenue and Searingtown Schools, respectively, new principals Loren Borgese and Diana DeGiorgio introduced themselves to students and parents and visited classrooms throughout opening day. This school year brings expansion of Project Lead the Way to grades seven and eight, continuation of robotics team opportunities, replacement of musical instruments, addition of the Naviance Career Exploration Program for middle school students, introduction of the iXL Math Support Program for the elementary schools and instructional technology upgrades. Herricks schools are also continuing their emphasis on social-emotional learning and programs that promote mindfulness at all levels to equip students with self-management, social awareness and stress-reduction skills.

‘Countdown to Apollo’


s part of its “Countdown to Apollo at 50” celebration, the Cradle of Aviation Museum and Education Center will present “An Evening with Al Worden” on Monday, Sept. 17 at 7 p.m. in the museum’s Dome Theater.! Between July 26 to Aug. 7, 1971, Worden was the Endeavour command module pilot on Apollo 15, which was considered the most ambitious and most scientific of all the Apollo missions, setting several moon records for NASA including the longest lunar surface stay time, the longest lunar extravehicular activity, and the first use of a lunar roving vehicle.! Worden spent six days orbiting the moon, three of which he spent in isolation collecting data and conducting science experiments. During that time, he photographed and mapped almost 25% of the lunar surface, the first time it had ever been accomplished. On the return trip, he was the first person to space walk in deep space outside the command module for a total of 38 minutes. Worden is also one of only 24 people who have ever flown to the Moon. A highly sought-after motivational speaker and bestselling author of three books, Worden will engage the audi-

ence, sharing the excitement of his experiences and inspiring the next generation to excel in science, engineering and exploration.! Worden was born in Jackson, Mich. He received a bachelor of military science degree in 1955 from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and he earned M.S. degrees in astronautical and aeronautical engineering and in instrumentation engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1963. He was a U.S. Air Force pilot and a commercial test pilot before joining the space program in 1966. During the Apollo 15 mission, he orbited the Moon while commander David Scott and lunar module pilot James Irwin descended to the moon’s surface. On the return trip, Worden took a spacewalk — at what was then the record distance from Earth for such activity, about 315,000 km (196,000 miles) — retrieving cassettes containing films of the Moon from the rear of a sub-satellite that they had sent into orbit two days previously. After serving at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif., from 1972 to

1975, Worden resigned from the Air Force and the space program to enter private enterprises in Colorado and Florida. He wrote two books in 1974, a book of poetry, “Hello Earth — Greetings from Endeavour,” and a children’s book, “I Want to Know About a Flight to the Moon.” He also wrote “Falling to Earth: An Apollo 15 Astronaut’s Journey to the Moon” in 2011. In a foreword to “Falling to Earth,” Fred Rogers says of Worden,!“Of course he’s a great scientist, but one of the great things about him is that he uses his gift of communication to make traveling in space so much more comprehensible to those of us who stay on Earth.” The Cradle of Aviation Museum and Education Center is home to over 75 planes and spacecraft representing over 100 years of aviation history and Long Island’s only Giant Screen Dome Theater.!! Currently, the museum is celebrating “Countdown to Apollo at 50,” sponsored by the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation, showcasing Long Island and Grumman’s significant role in the Apollo program.! The museum was recently recognized and listed on New

York State’s National Register of Historic Places as a significant part of American history. The Cradle of Aviation Museum is located on Museum Row, Charles Lindbergh Blvd., in East Garden City.! For more information, call 516-572-4111 or visit Tickets to Worden’s event are are $20 or $15 for museum members. Seating is limited.

Israel and for 15, the networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bureau chief. Dubbed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;gold standard of television war correspondentsâ&#x20AC;? by fellow journalist and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, Fletcher has won almost every award in TV journalism. Among them, the du Pont, known as the TV Pulitzer; five Overseas Press Club awards, the Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence several times; five Emmys; and many others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Promised Landâ&#x20AC;?!is a sweeping saga of two brothers and the woman they love, a devastating love triangle set to the tumultuous founding of Israel. New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Promised Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is a great, sweeping epic, reminiscent of Leon Urisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Exodusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;; a moving story of triumph and tragedy, new love and historic hate, expertly told by a cast of unforgettable characters. Fletcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s writing is superb and rises to the level of importance that this story demands and deserves. Historical novels donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get much better than â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Promised Land.'â&#x20AC;? Tickets to the event are $40 and can be purchased atďŹ&#x192;ce.

A celebration 40 years in making Williston Day Street Fair marks anniversary of event that captures small-town feel BY R E B ECC A K L A R In September 1978 the Yankees and Boston Red Sox faced off in a series of games leading" to the Yankees’ victory in a one-game tiebreaker to determine the American League East champion. That same month, Muhammed Ali beat Leon Spinks in a surprise victory and became the heavyweight champion before an estimated television audience of 90 million. In Williston Park and East Williston, September 1978 holds another piece of historical significance – it marks the start of a 40year and counting tradition of the annual Williston Day Street Fair. Sunday’s affair will be the 40th consecutive year the Williston Area Chamber of Commerce has run the community event independently. Keeping the fair under the chamber’s control has allowed it to remain more community-oriented than other Long Island street fairs," chamber Executive Director Lucille Walters said in a previous interview.

“To me that’s what sets us apart from the other fairs,” Walters said. “We have control over it, we have control over what we want to put in the fair.”" This year’s fair will run along Hillside Avenue between Willis Avenue and the Long Island Rail Road station between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. It will feature antique cars, a petting zoo, children’s rides, rock and roll bands, pony rides and more. More than 200 local merchants and outside vendors will participate. However, when the street fair first began it was called “Old Fashioned Day,” Walters said. The smaller event was held on Willis Avenue, she said. Walters, an East Williston resident, said she wasn’t sure exactly when the street fair moved, but said even during her 15-year tenure the street fair has grown. Walters expects about 10,00 people to come out on Sunday, she said. The rain date for the event is Sept. 23.

Roslyn Heights Funeral Home


Ask the Funeral Director… By Joseph Velotti, Funeral Director Roslyn Heights Funeral Home

Preplanning a funeral is undoubtedly one of the biggest and most important decisions you will make in your lifetime. Whether it is for you or a loved one, the first step is obtaining all the necessary information to make an informed decision. More and more people are choosing to preplan/prepay their funeral and burial expenses. In doing so, they recognize that it is smart financial planning and provides great emotional relief for themselves and their loved ones. Prepaying your funeral will allow you to make your own funeral plans, but, more importantly, preplanning will spare surviving relatives and loved ones from the emotional burden of having to make decisions at a time of great stress and grief. The most common questions people ask when they are considering preplanning their funeral arrangements are:

We are proud to announce a major renovation to our facility. Our promise is to provide the upmost attention to detail to your family. Your family will receive concierge like service in an elegant home like surrounding. We offer a complete range of affordable, quality services from Traditional Funerals to Simple Cremation.

#1. Why Pre Plan at all? • Allows individuals the opportunity to make personal and specific selections for the funeral service that most closely meets their needs. • Spares loved ones from having to second-guess the wishes of the deceased at the time of need. • Allows for time to research funeral homes, burial options, and financial considerations; • Provides an option to set aside funds for final expenses, relieving family members of an unexpected financial burden. #2. Why Pre Pay for my arrangements? • Placing the cost of the funeral (at today's prices) in an investment vehicle, so that the interest earned will keep pace with inflation to cover the cost of the funeral (at future prices) when the death occurs. • Prevents life insurance policies from being depleted at the time of a loved one's death. • Allows individuals to consider options while they are better prepared to make sound, fiscally responsible decisions. • Spares loved ones the unexpected cost of a funeral during a stressful time. Roslyn Heights Funeral Home offers price guaranteed pre-arrangement thru PREPLAN a funeral trust pre-funding program backed by the NYS Funeral Directors Association, Inc. call 516-621-4545 for more information.

Annual Italian fest to return to Hofstra Celebrate Italy’s cultural and culinary influence on America at one of the largest and most beautiful outdoor festivals on Long Island. Hofstra University will host the 26th Annual Italian Experience Festival on Sunday, Sept. 16, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.!The festival will take place outdoors, rain or shine, on the South Campus. The Italian Experience Festival is a popular tradition that features a full itinerary of crafts, live entertainment, children’s activities and food. New this year to the festival’s entertainment lineup are singer and actress Francesca Capetta; Mickela Mallozzi from the Emmy Award-winning program “Bare Feet”; and Italian singer and actor Ciro Acampora. Singer and actress Capetta recently made her! Carnegie Hall! debut in the sold-out solo show, “Francesca Capetta Sings Dean Martin,” with!the late FrenchItalian Tony Award-winner Liliane Montevecchi!as a special guest. She has been spotlighted in “Broadway’s Rising Stars” at!Town Hall; “Francesca Capetta: An Italian In New York” at!Feinstein’s/54 Below; “Ziegfeld Midnight Frolic” at the! Broadway Liberty Theater;! “Sempreverde” at the Queens Theater in the Park; and “Bloody Beginning” at the Weylin Theater. Earlier this season, she premiered her solo show, “Broadway and Jazz in Italy,” and she will be performing in the leading role of Maria Montessori in the new musical “La Dottoressa” at!Lincoln Center.! The daughter of Italian immigrant

parents from Minturno (Lazio region), Mallozzi plays classical and jazz piano, violin and flute. She attended New York University for Music Composition, spending two summers abroad with the NYU Florence Program and in Rome as an AIAE Programma Ponte scholarship recipient. After graduation and a stint working for a music management company, Mallozzi reentered the world of dance and began teaching jazz, tap, ballet and lyrical at the Locust Performing Arts Center in Stamford, CT, as well as The Masala Bhangra Workout® at The Ailey Extension in New York City.! Mallozzi created the Bare Feet project in 2010 to express her fascination for travel, folk dance and music. She created the Bare Feet Blog, documenting her dance adventures around the world. This evolved into the Emmy® Award-winning TV series on public television nationwide, “Bare Feet with Mickela Mallozzi.” Returning entertainment at the festival includes emcee Cav. Josephine A. Maietta, president, AIAE, and radio host of “Sabato Italiano” on WRHU-88.7 FM; the Sons of Italy; the Bronx Opera Company; and the Long Island Mandolin and Guitar Orchestra.

Nassau County Comptroller Jack Schnirman sary payroll and time and leave records, and as a result the auditors could not test them for compliance. Able Health Care Services of Hempstead — which provides home medical care in the county — was found to have underpaid four employees by $31,604 and failed to pay eight employees

$435 in compensated time off. Another home medical care provider, Allen Health Care Services, underpaid an employee by $74 and failed to pay $256 in compensated time off to eight employees. Gibbons, Esposito and Boyce Engineers of Garden City underpaid eight workers by $14,661

and withheld $2,424 in compensated time off. The county had hired the firm to monitor the removal and disposal of debris following superstorm Sandy. Another engineering firm, CH2M Hill, underpaid two workers by $292. The penalty for noncompliance is $500 per employee each week that the employee is found to have been underpaid; that bumps up to $1,000 after 30 days and $2,000 after 60. The living wage law applies to companies that have# entered contracts or leases with the county after Jan. 1, 2007, that are service contracts worth $250,000 or more, financial assistance contracts worth more than $50,000 and where the employer has at least 10 employees, and leases of property owned or controlled by the county. Certain contracts are not covered by the law (such as delivery services) nor are certain types of employees (such as employees under the age of 18 who are claimed as dependents). Since becoming law in 2007, the audits have identified

a total of $1,139,005 in underpaid wages affecting 1,443 employees. On Aug. 1 each year, the living wage rate is re-evaluated. The living wage for the county was $16.07 per hour for employees without health benefits and $13.98 per hour for employees with health benefits in 2017. On Aug. 1 of this year, that was increased#to $16.41 per hour for employees without health# benefits and $14.27 per hour for employees with benefits. When he announced that increase at a news conference last month, Schnirman also announced an English and Spanish tip line for employees to report vendors who are underpaying. “Our team will continue to demand accountability from employers and work with the administration to enforce the Law on the books to protect worker’s rights,” Schnirman said.# Reach reporter Luke Torrance by email at, by phone at 516-3071045, ext. 214, or follow him on Twitter @LukeATorrance

N. Hempstead retains Aaa bond rating Keeps top rank among Nassau Count towns, cities, has held it for more than a year BY JA N E LL E CL AUSEN


Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth, pictured here at a previous meeting, credited the Aaa bond rating to conservative budgeting and “focused” efforts by her financial team.

The Town of North Hempstead has kept its Aaa rating with a stable outlook on $8.7 million worth of public improvement serial bonds, Moody’s Investors Service announced last Tuesday. The Moody’s report attributes the rating and stable outlook to conservative fiscal management, balanced budgets, properly managed pensions and a debt management service plan. It also refers to a “strong socio-economic profile” and capital improvement projects in areas like Port Washington, Garden City Park, Carle Place, Greenvale, Manhasset and Searingtown. “The Aaa rating reflects a healthy financial position, large and wealthy tax base and a manageable debt burden with above average fixed costs,” the Moody’s report said. “The stable outlook reflects the town’s conservative

fiscal management practices, which will support healthy operating performance and maintenance of a strong financial position.” North Hempstead first received the Aaa rating, the highest a town can achieve, on March 16, 2017, following a long uptick from its A1 rating in 2002. Better bond ratings tend to lead to lower borrowing costs. “The Town’s continuation once again of a Triple A rating is the result of the steady and focused efforts by my financial team to watch each and every tax dollar, budget conservatively and manage debt,” Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth said. “It’s extremely satisfying to see this reflected in Moody’s opinion.” “It will translate into savings for our hard-working taxpayers,” Bosworth added. The Town of North Hempstead has the highest bond rating among Nassau County’s three towns and two cities.

Join fight against prostate cancer


eptember is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and it is time to stand up in the fight against prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the second cause of cancer death. 164,690 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year, and 29,430 men will die of this disease this year. The key is early detection, which will give a better outcome in fighting this disease. I know that only too well. I was diagnosed in January 2015. I was going to have knee surgery, and I had to have a physical by my primary

doctor, Dr. Doris Berland, and the test showed I had a high PSA and therefore she directed me to a urologist named Dr. Gary Goldberg, who discovered my PSA had gotten higher and needed a biopsy. It was found that I had an aggressive prostate cancer; it had not spread yet, but I would need my prostate removed. I did what had to be done. I was 66 years old then and now am 69 and my PSA numbers have remained low. There are many treatments out there today depending on the progression of the cancer. I call for all men over 50 to get tested for your life depends upon it

and your family depends upon you to live. I also ask those who can to donate to the American Cancer Society. A cure for prostate cancer can be found, as well as many other cancers but only if you care and give. There was a program on TV on Friday, Sept. 7 that asked for donations for a cure for cancer. The program was called Stand Up To Cancer. The program showed many people who survived cancer and were in remission. We have come a long way with research, technical improvements and

medicines that have helped the many, including myself, with our fight with cancer. But all this needs funding. They suggested you can go to So please give what you can and show that you care. Added to all this, my good friend Harry Weymer, who I have known for over fifty years, died this year of brain cancer. He truly needed a cure. I still miss him dearly. Frederick R. Bedell, Jr. Mineola

GN residents oppose housing development


attended the Aug. 17!Great Neck Estates Village Hall meeting. The Old Mill 11 decision was on the agenda. Mayor Wm. Warner pretty much said that the Village of Great Neck (my village) backed GNE in a corner by voting to approve Lalezarian (Properties) 11 house development, which will have no benefit to GNE residents who opposed the project. In all fairness to GN Village residents, we fought tooth and nail starting

in 2014. Many of your GNE residents attended. We fought to prevent an apartment building being built, then a second plan for 11 houses. Mayor Kreitzman and Board of Trustees and our Planning Board spent untold hours. We put every tumbling block in the way, but (with) Paul Bloom as Lalezarian’s lawyer, we already knew that we would lose 50%; he is excellent, that’s why all the developers use him. Our faint hope was that you had Tom Levine as your legal consul. I saw the dif-

ficulty on your words as you each read a statement. Please don’t blame our village. We gave in for the same reasons as you. We, too, are upset with the final decision. You did everything in your power to protect your residents, but sad to say there is no protection from a greedy developer, there is only blackmail. Do as I say or I will sue and win, the village residents will pay the price. As to Lalezarian, you came to our country and became a successful developer. Mazel tov. But when is enough?

You grab any sliver of land to develop without any thought (other than the almighty dollar), to the consequences for years to come for the welfare of our existing residents. In Aug. 2014 I said you have two faces. One that smiles when you get what you want and one that threatens to sue if you don’t… it seems to still apply. Jean Pierce Great Neck

Happy 86th anniversary to A train


n Sept. 10, 1932, service started on the A train, which originally ran between 207th Street in upper Manhattan and Chambers Street in downtown Manhattan. ! This was the first city owned and built IND subway line.! At the time, it was considered state-of-the-art, with rattan seats, metal straps and overhead fans providing speedy service.! The subway cars were so well built, many ran over 40 years into the early 1970s.! The basic design of these cars served as the foundation for future generations right up to the present day.! IND stations on the A line were built to accommodate up to 11 car lengths.!! During the! 1930s, NYC began building and financing construction of the new IND (Independent Subway — today’s A, C, E, F and!G lines).! This new municipal system completely subsidized by taxpayer dollars would provide direct competition to both the privately owned IRT (Interboro Rapid Transit — todays’s 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 lines) and BMT (Brooklyn Manhattan Transit — today’s B, D, J, L, M, N, R, Q and Z lines).!!

The original base fare of five cents was established in 1913. ! Municipal government!forced!both the BMT and IRT! into economic ruin by denying them fare increases in future decades that would have provided access to additional badly needed revenues.! Big Brother, just like the Godfather, eventually made them an offer they couldn’t refuse.! ! The owners folded and sold out to City Hall in 1940. The A train became famous in the 1940s when jazz musician Duke Ellington wrote “Take the A Train.” The A line was extended in 1936, known as the Fulton Street branch, running through Brooklyn terminating at!Lefferts Blvd. in Queens.! When the Long Island Rail Road abandoned the Rockaway Beach branch in the 1950s, the A line was extended to provide! new service! to the Rockaways, which began on June 28, 1956. In 1953, the old NYC Board of Transportation passed on control of the municipal subway system, including all its assets to the newly created New York City Transit Authority. Under late Gov. Nelson Rockefell-

er in the 60s, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority was created. The governor appointed four board members. Likewise, the mayor four more and the rest by suburban county executives. No one elected official controlled a majority of the votes. As a result, elected officials have historically taken credit when the MTA or any operating subsidiary such as New York City Transit would do a good job. When operational problems occurred or fare increases were needed — everyone could put up their hands. Don’t blame me, I’m only a minority within the board. Decade after decade, NYC mayors, comptrollers, public advocates, city council presidents, borough presidents and city council members would all play the same sad song — if only we had majority control of the board — things would be different. All have long forgotten that buried within the 1953 master agreement between the City of New York and NYC Transit is an escape clause. NYC has the legal right at any time to take back control of its assets, which includes the subway and most

of the bus system as well. Actions speak louder than words. If municipal elected officials feel they could do a better job running the nations largest subway and bus system, why not step up to the plate now and regain control of your destiny.! Many are too young to remember! that up until the! 1970s, NYC Transit!extended E line service, which ran express in Brooklyn providing supplemental service to the A line during rush hours to the Rockaways.! Riders! up until the early 1970s!had to pay an extra fare when traveling beyond Broad Channel to any other station in the! Rockaways.! For off peak and late night service, there was the old HH local shuttle from either Rockaway Park or Far Rockaway to Euclid Avenue Station, which was the first stop in Brooklyn. Larry Penner (Larry Penner is a transportation historian, advocate and writer who previously worked 31 years for the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Transit Administration New York Region 2 Office.) .

VGN meeting date, time un-American


or many citizens, 9/11 continues to be a day ordinary people simply want to get through. It is sad.! It represents a day of untold mourning. Whether we remember it for a fleeting

second when a television news clip catches our eye or whether we find ourselves engulfed in dark, deep thoughts until we go to go to sleep at night. The connection is there now and will always be there for so many citizens and

residents of Great Neck. And beyond. With that said, it pains me to state I feel it is quite un-American for our Village of Great Neck government leaders to elect to pick this particular date for a critical community meeting – let alone a start time

of 9 p.m. As I listen to the second siren of the day calling out at 9:02 a.m., I have to wonder, what were you thinking? Judy Shore Rosenthal Great Neck


Richie Kessel: At it again at county IDA? Continued from Page 15 ment of renewable energy production facilities and systems in Nassau County.” This RFQ has nothing to do with the mission of the IDA. It’s just another Kessel special. At LIPA and NYPA, to receive accolades from far-left enviros and interested vendors, Kessel squandered hundreds of

millions of ratepayer’s dollars on various questionable projects including failed fuel cells, Lake Erie windmills and expensive R&D projects that yielded little. Readers should also know that Kessel has received lobbying compensation— as has Alfonse D’Amato—from Florida Power and Light (FP&L), a subsidiary of NextEra Energy, the nation’s largest

wind-energy provider. (Coincidentally, a former LIPA Chairman, Frank Zarb, who currently heads Curran’s budget task force, has served on the board of FP&L.) Kessel’s RFQ for clean energy doesn’t pass the smell test. To get a better handle on the “coincidences” and Kessel’s antics, I filed this week with the County a Freedom-Of-In-

formation Request (FOIL), seeking access to, among other things, Kessel’s schedule, phone logs, memorandums, emails, and financial disclosure. County Executive Curran pledged a transparent administration. If she’s serious, my FOIL request will be answered promptly. Stay tuned.


An age-old question: does God exist? Does God exist? As one ages, the idea of going to church becomes more compelling. After the age of 50 one begins to realize that time is limited, time is running out and that the grim reaper does exist. This prompts the need to answer the three big questions: does life have any meaning, does God exist and is he looking out for me? And what better way to discover some answers than to go find a church and listen carefully for god to say something. Which church to go to? I couldn’t decide so in order to cover my bets and I thought I would visit the three major Abrahamic religions including a Judaic temple, a Catholic church and a Muslim temple. But even before I got started, divine intervention occurred as I was on the elliptical machine at Healthtrax doing my morning workout. I turn on the TV and there I see that handsome Joel Osteen, the charismatic Southern Baptist televangelist who preaches to about 7 million viewers weekly out of his church in Houston, Texas. His lecture was taken from the bible about how you should not bury your talents but rather

have the courage to develop them. Who could argue with that logic but I tend to resist his messages knowing that his degree was in communications and that his net worth is about $50 million. Somehow that gives me pause. I jump into my car and head straight up Roslyn Road for Temple Beth Sholom with the hope that I will find some more convincing proof of God’s existence. Alas, the temple was closed for the day and all I could do was admire the architecture and leave. Next, I head back down Roslyn Road and notice the popular Beacon church, the Tzu Chu Buddhist Temple and the East Williston Community Church. The Buddhist temple was closed but the Community Church was open for business so in I walked with an uneasy sense that I didn’t belong there. I entered the beautiful little church and could see that it was empty except for two cute kids who were running around having fun. I took that as a sign that I was in the presence of something good but still felt that was insufficient proof that God exists. So off I went to St. Aidans


down the street. It was doing a thriving business and it was hard to find a parking spot. The mass was in full swing when I got there and I estimated there must have been at least 300 in attendance. The songs seemed to be focused on how God and Jesus would take away the sins of the world and forgive people. This was decidedly different from the Joel Osteen message which was a lot more positive. The media people in the Osteen operation I am sure are advising him to keep things ‘light, tight and bright’ as they say in the publishing business. I stayed in the mass for upwards of ten minutes and snuck out the back door and into the lobby of the church where I noticed a sign-up sheet whereby

you could enlist the services of a prayer group to pray for you or someone you loved. I felt this was a good opportunity to ask either God or the parishioners at St. Adian’s to pray for me in my upcoming golf club championship. That may sound trivial to you but I assure you it means plenty to me. I thought it wise to make a monetary contribution to firm up my chances but saw that all I had were two singles and then some twenties. I was reluctant to fork over the twenty so I gave the two singles and hoped that would be enough. I promised myself that if the prayers and the two dollars got me through the qualifier I would return and give a much more sizable contribution. Through this whole spiritual voyage to find God I was hoping that Nietzsche was wrong when in 1891 he pronounced to the world that God is dead. His pronouncements are still with us today. He was one of the first philosophers to see that science would become the grand influencer, that the world would become more secular and that people would lose their need of a belief in the supernatural.

In 1966 the cover story for Newsweek was “Is God Dead?” Nietzsche suggested that the true answer to joy would not be found in a belief in God or religion but in a commitment to self-mastery, discipline and the will to power. He called this the Overman and suggested that our destiny is to overcome the weakness of human nature by a force of will and a commitment to a goal. His philosophy is still going strong and we have seen that the age of narcissism, individualism and self-absorption are in full command. But we all know that something is amiss. We can build all the gyms we want, look grand, make more money than God but still there is an emptiness that forces us to return to the questions I have asked. What is the meaning of life? Does God exist? Is someone looking out for us? I can’t say for sure but I do know this. I hope that the St Aidan’s prayer group will say some prayers for me and that God will show me the way to qualify for this year’s club championship. Yes, I ought to put in time on the range and putting green but a little boost from above will surely help matters.

Projects large, small for the fall The temperature dropped 20 degrees on Sunday, Sept. 2 from the previous day; I guess fall season was trying to inch its way in. However, the forecast is for warmer weather; but all this rain, uh! However, have you checked out your heating system? Have you tested your smoke/heat detectors to make sure they are functioning? Change that battery now! If you did use your fireplace last winter, when is the last time you had a chimney sweep in to brush and clean it thoroughly; also have you added a chimney cap to prevent squirrels, raccoons or birds or other animals inside? Over development for whatever land is left in our surrounding towns and the cutting down of trees, has further minimized and eliminated the natural habitat for those animals. Although this is a sad commentary on where they can live; you surely do not want them in your home, clogging up your chimney. The fall is an excellent time to trim trees as the leaves begin to fall as well as cutting back shrubbery (if you haven’t already completed this task) to allow as much sunlight into your home as possible. Speaking of sunlight and solar; this could be an excellent time to consider whether solar panels would be a solid investment. One must determine how long would it take to get back your money even with state and

federal credits, to reap worthwhile savings on your electric bill. There was an excellent article in Newsday on Sunday, Sept 2, exposing the difficulties that homeowners were having who leased their solar panels. The lure was how inexpensive it was to get involved, but the actual long-term cost was very prohibitive. It is actually much more cost effective to purchase than it is to lease (just like comparing renting vs. owning your home!) There is an excellent added value benefit to your home; assuming you have enough sunlight (and not a lot of trees on your property). Over 85 percent or more sun is needed on your roof area to provide you the optimum return. What you have to figure out is how long will you be in your home. If you are a new homeowner, it should pay for itself in a 3-5 year period of time. If you have been in your home 20+ years, if may not be as good an investment; it all depends how many more years you will be living there to get back your money as well as begin saving on your electric bill. That is something you must contemplate in advance and know for sure, so you don’t invest your money without calculating the return you are expecting to receive in the future. I am selling a home in New Hyde Park (Great Neck Schools) that

PHILIP A. RAICES Real Estate Watch

had solar panels (he also put in a generator too) installed 10 years ago. The owner told me it was one of the best investments he ever made in his home. After installation, his electric bills averaged $74 per month, even include running his cental air; whereby it used to be over $200,000. However, you really have to be extremely careful who you will be hiring. Get at least three estimates and check with your county consumer affairs office for any complaints or violations. Also, ask for at least three homeowners names and numbers who had installed their systems 5-10 years ago, to see if they were satisfied and saving money. There have been some serious failures within the industry. Suniva, Solar World and some others have declared bankruptcy in 2017. The reduced manufacturing costs of

solar panels has decreased the profitability within the industry, because the original upfront costs of building a manufacturing facility runs into the hundreds of millions of dollars. So it will be very prudent to make sure that you have adequate information on the companies, to make sure they will hopefully be around to service you, if need be, years from now. Had any thoughts of adding a gas generator in the event your electric goes out? (seems to be a common occurrence over the last few years, right?). My opinion is that is another excellent investment, assuming you will be in your home for at least 15-20 years. The convenience of having a generator, will add value to your home, while preventing the loss of heat, food and conveniences over the years, and would be a worthwhile investment and will make your home that much more saleable in the long run. Consumer Reports states that in some cases, your home value can increase by 3-5 percent. A 2014 report by Remodeling Magazine indicated that installing a standby generator can provide up to a 150 percent return on your investment. Meaning, if you spent $12,000 on installing a generator, your home value may increase up to $18,000. If you are looking for a passive way to get more sunshine and warmth into your home, while gaining more living space,

you might want to consider a sunroom. However, the most beneficial direction for the construction would be south or south west (again without trees covering that location). Most important, if you plan to use the room year round, would be the installation of some type of heating system for the winter months. The 2013 Hanley Wood Remodeling Cost vs. Value report suggests nationally homeowners recoup an average of 47 percent on a sunroom addition to their homes with an average cost of $73,000 or less, returning a value of $34,000 upon resale. Deciding which projects to consider, if any, will be determined by your available budget and how you may want to add value to your home. I want to wish everyone celebrating, a healthy and enjoyable holiday and happy new year, Shana Tova, with family and friends. Philp A.

L.I.’s Over 50 Fair returns to Huntington The Over 50 Fair, in its ninth year, will return to the Hilton Long Island/Huntington on Sunday, Sept. 30 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for the enjoyment of hundreds of Long Island Baby Boomers and seniors. The annual event is the largest “over 50” expo on Long Island. This year’s event will have more than 80 exhibitors and 30 speakers, including many features from last year plus new ones for attendees to enjoy. Speakers who are back for a repeat engagement include Katherine Martin and Enkofi John of Foresters Financial who will speak about retirement planning as well as Social Security. Linda Fostek, “the Crisis Planner,” will teach a class on tackling your worries. Janis Abrams of Gentle Soul Discoveries will demonstrate Reiki. The

Seasoned Steppers will be doing a dance performance, a favorite last year. Some new classes this year include an estate and Medicaid planning presentation by Anthony F. Russo, Esq., and getting merit-based endowment money from the college of your choice by Robert C. Intelisano CSA. The Over 50 Fair is the brainchild of East Hills resident Barbara Kaplan, who also coordinates events at area malls under the business name Specialty Connections. She says that the Over 50 Fair is “overflowing with opportunities for adults age 50+.” Although MTN Matchmaking is new to the Over 50 Fair, the singles lounge, which they will be running, is not. This popular area gives attendees an area to sit, chat, and perhaps meet their special someone.

Noteworthy Band will played jazz and acoustic music throughout the day. This new addition to the Over 50 Fair was well received last year. The event has been building a loyal following among the Boomer generation due to its consistent presentation of a variety of classes and products they find appealing.

Band seeks to unite community The Afro-Semitic Experience will perform in concert on Sunday, Oct. 14 at 4:30 p.m. at Shelter Rock Jewish Center, 272 Shelter Rock Road at the Herricks Road intersection in Roslyn. Started in 1998 with the friendship of African-American jazz pianist Warren Byrd and Jewish-American jazz bassist David Chevan, the band combines eclectic styles that display sophisticated musicianship, original songs, standards and stories, tied together with their message of “Unity in the Community.” The band gets audiences dancing in the aisles with a mix of jazz, swing, salsa, gospel, cantorial, world-beat music and other styles. A sneak-peak may be viewed at The Richard E. Herter Memorial Fund at Shelter Rock Jewish Center, named in mem-

ory of a jazz guitarist, is providing principal underwriting for the concert. Tickets are $28 per person and include a light-bite dinner after the concert. Advance purchase is required. Group pricing is available.

Send a check or credit card information with your contact information to SRJC, 272 Shelter Rock Road, Roslyn, NY 11576. For information, call 516741-4305 on weekdays (office closed on Jewish festival days.)

The attendees enjoy connecting with the vendors, and vice versa. Repeat exhibitor Joe Satriano of the Susan Satriano Foundation said, “The Over 50 Fair is a grand expo of talented people and amazing products on display for sale. There is something for everyone to browse, enjoy talented performers and attend educational classes dur-

ing the day.” The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network), a local non-profit that helps Long Island’s needy, is once again asking people to bring non-perishable food and cash donations to exchange for raffle tickets to win for valuable prizes. Admission tickets, which include access to all classes and exhibitors, are $6 online, $8 at the door, and free for veterans with ID." Attendees may bring one adult child free with their paid admission. The Hilton Long Island/Huntington is located at 598 Broad Hollow Road in Melville, just south of the Long Island Expressway. Sponsors for this year’s event include Blank Slate Media and 50 Plus LifeStyles. For more information, visit

Town offering tax seminars Town of North Hempstead Receiver of Taxes Charles Berman will be holding a series of Property Tax Exemption Seminars throughout the Town over the next several months. Residents can learn about important changes to STAR (Basic and Enhanced), senior citizens, veterans and other exemptions that could help lower property taxes. The income limit for the 2019-2020 Enhanced STAR Exemption for seniors is under $86,300 (based on 2017 adjusted gross income, less any taxable IRA distributions), making some previously ineligible homeowners now qualified for the exemption. Staff members will be on hand to distribute applications and answer questions.

The Property Tax Exemption Seminars will take place as follows: Tuesday, Oct. 2, 7 to 8:45 p.m. at Hillside Public Library, 155 Lakeville Road, New Hyde Park Thursday, Oct. 4, 7 to 8:45 p.m. at Shelter Rock Public Library, 165 Searingtown Road, Albertson Monday, Nov. 19, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Westbury Memorial Public Library, 445 Jefferson St., Westbury Tuesday, Nov. 20, 1 to 2:30 p.m. at Bryant Library, 2 Paper Mill Road, Roslyn For more information about the seminars, contact the Town’s 311 Call Center by dialing 311 or 516-869-6311.

LIU Post Pioneer football is back BY A N D R E W S C A R PA C I Head LIU Post football coach Bryan Collins has high expectations for the 2018 fall! football!season, with!an experienced team full of a starting roster of mostly seniors. There is a plethora of leadership on and off the field by all these seniors,! who will look to end their!college careers on a high note. Collins’ goal for his players is the!same!every!year,!having a “first-class reputation,” meaning good grades and the way everyone on his roster carries and presents themselves on and off the field. His on-field expectations! this year include being! conference champs, which he sees as very! possible! this season, then to be NCAA regional champs, which would definitely be a high honor, and lastly to be national champs,! which would be an extreme accomplishment for this football team. Leading the pack this year is a!core of senior captains.!Starting!the list!is wide!receiver Michael Richardson, who last year as a junior broke the all-time!Pioneer single-season touchdown record. Coach Collins strongly believes he can break that record again this year. On the offensive line!is left!tackle Chris Coles. The running back is secondyear starter Malik Pierre.!On!the defensive side,! Patrick Williams leads! the way as middle linebacker.


LIU Post football plays at the 2017 homecoming game. Other starters who will be making an! impact this year! are! defensive end Kevin Petite and linebacker Connor Farrell. Their secondary has! two! sophomore starters at cornerback,! Nazir Streater and Jamel Johnson. Other starting receivers to Michael Richardson are Amir Crenshaw and Deon Mash. One big hole the!team!will have to fill is the defensive tackle position.

Collins and team will look to find the best suitable replacement! for Anthony Denunzio, who graduated in spring 2018. The top options!now!are!lineman Anthony Lavio and Able Joseph. The long snapper position is also up for grabs;! this will most likely be taken by! outside linebacker, senior Jake Carlock. Linebacker coach/special teams coordinator Jim Gibbons is also! positive! about! this year’s team. He!sees big things out of

their transfer quarterback from Rutgers University,! who will be at the head of their passing game this year. He believes they have a! strong special teams, as they put!great!effort into it. This is led by returning kicker Senior John Pavacic. He sees special teams as! important as most of these players only start on special teams to rest the players on offense and defense. He, like Coach Collins, hopes!to be conference champs, go to the NCAA playoffs, and win

the regional championship, as they have made the final 8 a few times in the past. Coach Gibbons sees a!strong line-backing core with! two! returning seniors and!two!recruited juniors from Dean College. While! Gibbons! sees talent in all his players, Pioneer football rarely starts freshmen;! it is all about earning your spot. This is the case for many underclassmen who will be taken “under the ropes” by this year’s abundance of seniors. It will be an interesting rebuild for next year, as almost all the starting positions will have to be refilled.! Gibbons! sees most of these positions taken by this year’s sophomore and junior class, as he sees a setup!two!years from now for this season’s freshman class. Gibbons is also optimistic that a few players on the roster could!get a look by NFL teams. This year’s team will have a lot to prove. The coaches believe that! if any roster can do it, it would! be this team full of veteran talent, who have all been working with each other for years under the leadership of Coach Collins and his staff.

“Best of the North Shore”




The Herald Courier, Friday, September 14, 2018



$100K salaries at Nassau’s patronage mill Continued from Page 1 Appointing fallen political players to jobs at the Board of Elections isn’t uncommon. The board is the only agency intentionally and legally set up to be a patronage organization – “whether we like it or not,” according to Lawrence Levy, executive dean of the National Center for Suburban Studies at Hofstra University. “You know the expression that politics is like sausage making and you don’t want to spend a lot!of time looking at what goes on in the kitchen,” Levy said. ! “This is the ultimate example of sausage making in politics. It’s also one of the legal ones.” Nearly 80 percent of last year’s county Board of Elections budget went toward salaries, wages and fees, with the commissioners of both major parties getting paid more than $180,000 in taxpayer funds for the politically appointed job, according to Board of Elections’ records as of July. Of the $19,254,454 budget, more than $15 million went to salaries, wages and fees. Santino’s position as an administrative assistant earns him a salary of $160,000. Troiano is making $140,000 at the Board of Elections as director of special projects. The Board of Elections employs approximately 154 full-time workers, 24 part-time clerks and 14 seasonal employees, according to records as of July. In accordance with state election law, Democratic Commissioner David Gugerty and Republican Commissioner Louis Savinetti were appointed by their respective Nassau County party chairmen. The parties that receive the two highest counts of voters in the last gubernatorial election get to lead the board, Bonnie Garone, counselor to the Democratic commissioner, said in an interview. The rest of the employees at the Board of Elections are split evenly between the parties. It is in the commissioners’ power to appoint and remove the other employees, Garone said. “Long ago it was determined in this state the best way to make sure things are fair and even-handed is to make sure the two parties with the highest number of members in New York watch each other,” Garone said. “That’s where the oversight comes from.” Each position has a replica of itself in the other major party, Levy said. “If you’re the Republican leader and the idea is to put a loyal Republican who is going to look after the party’s interests, which is what they’re supposed to do by law, then you’re not going to put in an Independent or good government type,” Levy said. !


The Nassau County Board of Elections, located at 240 Old Country Road, spent nearly 80 percent of last year’s budget on salaries, wages and fees. Both parties are looking for appointees who will best represent the party – “and who is going to better represent the party than a former elected official,” Levy said. Levy said he was unaware of any Board of Elections employees who are simultaneously serving in elected positions, but said it would surprise him to see that an employee would be overseeing an election he may be a candidate in. Hempstead Town Councilman Anthony D’Esposito is doing just that. D’Esposito was appointed to the Board of Elections in February. When D’Esposito’s job at the Board of Elections was announced, Hempstead Town Supervisor Laura Gillen, the Democrat who beat Santino last November, called serving in the two positions “wholly unethical and a clear conflict of interest.” She said her fellow board member should either refuse the appointment or resign from the Town Board. “To work simultaneously in both capacities is outrageous and displays nothing but contempt for the taxpayers we swore an oath to serve,” Gillen said in a statement at the time. As of July, D’Esposito, was still sitting on the Town Board while working as an administrative assistant at the Board of Elections, earning $100,000, according to Board of Elections records. Efforts to reach D’Esposito were unavailing. Board of Elections employees are also not immune to the seemingly wide-

spread nepotism across the county. A list of family ties throughout Nassau government compiled by Newsday in October 2017 showed more than 20 Board of Elections employees had connections to politicians of both parties on

the town, county and state level. Among them are! Patrick Kiernan, son of former Republican North Hempstead Town Supervisor John Kiernan. Patrick Kiernan was making $70,000 as a research aide as of July, according to Board of Elections records.! Michelle Imbroto, sister of Republican Oyster Bay Town Councilman Louis

Imbroto, is making $48,000 as a registration clerk. Cynthia Labriola, wife of former Republican state Assemblyman Steve Labriola, is earning $70,000 as an administrative assistant. Regina Corbin, wife of Democrat Roger Corbin, a former Nassau County legislator who Newsday reported is serving time for a bribery conviction, is earning $114,000 as an administrative assistant. The splitting of jobs among Democrats and Republicans may be an outdated policy, Levy said. While it may have made sense at one point, there are increasing numbers of people not registered with either major party. “Now that [independents] have grown exponentially in the days since this system was created, the question should be raised whether the interest of these voters is represented by a system that gives overwhelming influence to the two major parties,” Levy said. Although Election Day is generally considered a once-a-year occasion, Garone said the Board of Elections’ responsibilities are a “year-round undertaking.” The board also helps facilitate elections for school districts, special districts and villages throughout the year, totaling “well over 200 elections per year,” she said. The board also processes all voter registration and absentee ballot applications, and answers questions from the public, Garone said.
