Five trustees, one justice Rain can’t dampen running in 2 Port villages the PortFest spirit Sands Point and Manorhaven elections set for June BY ST E P H E N ROMANO Three trustees from Sands Point and two trustees and the village justice from Manorhaven have filed to run for election in June. All will run unopposed. Sands Point Mayor Edward Adler and Trustees Kay Ullman and Marc Silbert are all seeking re-election, and Manorhaven Trustees Rita Di Lucia and John Popeleski and village Justice Peter Gallanter are all running. Trustees serve two-year terms and the village justice has a four-year term. Adler, who was elected to the board in 1991 and became mayor in 2011, said he is running for re-election because he still loves being involved. “I love giving back to the community,” Adler said. “It’s a hard job that is very complex so you have to be dedicated and put in a lot of time, but I love being involved.” Adler has lived in Sands Point for 40 years, and when he first joined the board, he was commissioner of the Building Department. The then mayor was having problems with the department, Adler said, and when he took over the department, he spent years fixing the problems. “We made it that residents felt the Building Department was responsible and responsive,” Adler said. For the next 10 years on the board, Adler served as the police commissioner, where he said the

Sands Point Mayor Edward Adler “main job was putting the force in the strongest possible position in term of quality of leadership and officers.” Adler said the village is beginning new projects, including new conservation methods for residents and the Water Department, negotiating with the PBA for a new police contract and work on the Village Club of Sands Point. Adler, who lived in New York City before moving to Sands Point, is an attorney who runs a real estate development busi-

ness. Ullman, who was elected to the Board of Trustees in 1994, moved to Port Washington in 1951. She said she is running for re-election because she believes volunteering for the village is “extremely important.” “I think we have a pretty harmonious board and it’s been like that for most of the years I’ve been on the board,” Ullman said. “If we don’t agree completely, we work until everyone Continued on Page 70

Although organizers would have preferred to hold their event outside as usual, the rain did not dampen the success of this year’s PortFest in Port Washington. The annual music, arts and community festival, which is in its fifth year, drew about 1,000 people to Paul D. Schreiber High School in Port Washington on Saturday. The activities were inside due to the rainy weather. PortFest is one of two major fundraising events put together by HEARTS, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing and maintaining the arts in the Port Washington school district and the broader community. The five-hour event was free to the public and the proceeds from tickets for activities, silent auctions, vendors and other donations go to the schools to fund grants for arts-related activities. Paintings, photography and other artistic creations were highlighted throughout the school, along with professional art vendors. But the organization’s musical events were the main attrac-

tion, with parents, teachers and residents congregating to see performances by students. Chris Shields, principal of Carrie Palmer Weber Middle School, was one of several emcees introducing performers. When he was recruited to do the job, he said he couldn’t say no. “I wanted to do it,” he said. “They [HEARTS] are so supportive to all of the students so when I’m asked to volunteer I do it.” Damon Gersh, chairman and co-founder of HEARTS, was in constant motion at the Saturday event with walkie-talkie in hand and full of enthusiasm. He said initially he saw a need for arts-related activities in the school, but didn’t know how to address it. So while relaxing on a beach in Montauk one day, he came up with the idea of getting artists to help bring artistic expression back to Port Washington schools. When financial decisions have to be made within a school district to save money, Gersh said, arts programs are often the first to be cut. HEART has been able to change the situation, he said, Continued on Page 69

CORRECTION An article in the May 12 issue of the Port Washington Times about the upcoming school board and budget vote misstated the 2017-18 budget tax levy increase. The tax levy will increase 2.3 percent.

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

to Blank Slate Media last Tuesday. The form for 2010, along with those for 2008 and 2012, were absent, despite village records showing payments to Terry in those years. Government entities are sub-

ject to a fine — $260 per return as of January 2016 — for each Form 1099 they fail to file, according to the IRS website. The fine is higher if “intentional disregard” for IRS law can be proven. Terry, 63, of East Hills, has

pleaded not guilty in federal court to charges of tax evasion and the obstruction of the Internal Revenue Service for allegedly failing to file on-time income tax returns since 2000 and lying about his income on returns he filed late. He worked for at least seven Nassau County municipalities, including Manorhaven, the Town of North Hempstead and the Village of Port Washington North. Manorhaven officials said Jonathan P. Fielding, the village clerk-treasurer at the time, would have been responsible for handling Terry’s checks and tax forms in 2010. Fielding also worked with Terry as the secretary to the Town of North Hempstead Board of Zoning Appeals, and helped create a limited liability company that Terry allegedly used to hide income from tax collectors. Municipality #2 is among three entities that allegedly played a role in concealing his income and otherwise evading tax collectors, according to McContinued on Page 70

Elaine Phillips (RFlower Hill) named Port Washington resident Mindy Germain a Senate Woman of Distinction last Tuesday. Germain, the executive director of Residents For a More Beautiful Port Washington, received the honor in Albany along with 61 other woman as part of the Senate’s annual ceremony. “Mindy Germain is a very passionate, dedicated and talented woman who has worked tirelessly to give back to her community,” Phillips said. “From safeguarding our drinking water and teaching kids how they can protect the environment to enhancing downtown Port Washington, she is literally changing our area for the better. It’s my pleasure to award Mindy this well-deserved honor in recognition of all she has done to make our community a better place.” A Port Washington resident since 2000, Germain joined Residents For a More Beautiful Port Washington, a community group

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

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

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

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

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

Turquoise takeover raises awareness American Lung Association promotes health issues in Paul D. Schreiber High School program BY ST E P H E N ROMANO Paul D. Schreiber High School was transformed into a sea of turquoise. Students and teachers last week donned the color as part of the American Lung Association’s Turquoise Takeover awareness campaign. The event, a health awareness campaign that runs from Friday to Tuesday, is part of Lung Force, the American Lung Association’s effort to raise awareness about lung health and lung cancer. Students listened to a cancer survivor’s story during the day and talks from professionals from the lung association and representatives from NYU Winthrop Hospital’s oncology department, as well as Michelle Lewis Salzman, director of the Phoebe Lynn Lewis Foundation. The New York-based foundation focuses on urging people at risk for lung cancer to get screened. Students were encouraged to reach out to loved ones who

Schreiber High School’s Key Club, an organization that volunteers and raises funds for different causes, and another club, Students Against Destructive Decisions, helped organize the

event. “It was extremely gratifying to help plan this day with the Key Club, SADD and the health teachers in memory of my grandmother, who lost her fight against lung cancer,” Schreiber freshman Adam Salzman said, referring to Phoebe Lynn Lewis.

“The day helped educate teenagers about the harmful effects of smoking and vaping, and raised awareness about lung cancer screening – a low dose CT scan that can save one’s life – that very few patients or doctors know about.” According to the American

Lung Association, at least 8.6 million Americans are at high risk for lung cancer and are recommended to receive annual low-dose CT scans. Students in the Key Club and Students Against Destructive Decisions shared information with other students on the American Lung Association’s Lung Force walk on May 20 in New York, school officials said. The school also held an essay contest to encourage participants to examine the rise in vaping and smoking alternatives among teenagers. “This is valuable information for our students to process and share with one another and family members,” Superintendent of Schools Kathleen Mooney said. “It can save their lives and the lives of those close to them. Hearing testimony from the experts, and people who have had their lives impacted by cancer, can go a long way in getting the message across.” About 222,500 new cases of lung cancer are expected in 2017, according to the American Cancer Society.

E. Hills artist to debut at Dolphin Bookshop Exhibit to showcase digital art, photography BY K R I ST Y O’CONNELL An East Hills artist will have her first exhibition, “Soul Landscapes,” at the Dolphin Bookshop in Port Washington in June. The exhibit will showcase Jael Coaracy’s work with digital art and photography, which is made through a process of photographing and re-photographing art after layering texture and digital design upon each new piece. The opening reception will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. on June 3. “Art was always part of my life,” Coaracy said. “And I real-

ized that it is something that I really want to do professionally.” Coaracy, of Brazil, moved to the U.S. several years ago after marrying Steve Goldberg. While she was a licensed psychologist in Brazil, she said she has also dabbled in digital art, poetry and writing. She has four books published in Brazil, one of which focuses on photography, design and music. Coaracy said she has already begun planning more exhibitions and is excited to bring her art to the public. She describes her art as abstract and colorful, explaining the exhibit’s title, “Soul Land-

scapes,” as a flow of intuition – she said that for her, soul landscapes is a state of mind, an emotional state, a piece of work that can relate to emotional feelings. “We live in a world full of heavy news and heavy stuff, and what I want is to bring beauty and delicateness and happiness to people,” said Coaracy. Coaracy said she hopes her career in art will eventually allow her to work with interior designers and architects. She said she hopes to exude positive energy by bringing joyful and happy colors to people’s homes.

Opinion OUR VIEWS

Right choice at Clinton Martin

T

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

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

Editorial Cartoon

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

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

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

ALL THINGS POLITICAL

The outsourcing of good paying jobs

D

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

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

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

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

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

A LOOK ON THE LIGHTER SIDE

This laughter is no laughing matter

I

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

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

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

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

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

OUT OF LEFT FIELD

Italian-Americans riding the sports elevator

D

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

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

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

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

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

PULSE OF THE PENINSULA

2-state solution the only way, Barak argues

E

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

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

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

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

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

FROM THE DESK OF ELAINE PHILLIPS

LIRR riders deserve better treatment

L

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

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

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

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

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

KREMER’S CORNER

Many elephants needed to tame Trump

I

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

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

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

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

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

The importance of donating blood

I

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

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

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

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

Trump’s ignorance, broken promises

O

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

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

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

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

Phillips shows she cares for seniors

A

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

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

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

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

Acting police commish treated at St. Francis Krumpter released after undergoing stent procedure B Y N O A H M A N S K A R many as five stents put in his know of any existing health

Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter is seen in Great Neck in 2014.

Nassau County’s acting police commissioner was recovering at home Friday after being treated for heart problems, the Police Department said. Acting Commissioner Thomas Krumpter was released from St. Francis Hospital in Flower Hill on Friday afternoon after undergoing a stent procedure to open up his arteries on Thursday, Deputy Commissioner Patrick Ryder said in a statement. He went to the hospital on the advice of his doctor after feeling some discomfort Thursday, Ryder said. Officer James McDermott, president of the Nassau Police Benevolent Association, the county’s largest police union, said he heard from police officials that Krumpter has had as

heart. “[T]he commissioner has been released and he is home resting comfortably,” Det. Lt. Richard LeBrun, the department’s top spokesman, said in an email. Krumpter, 50, has served as Nassau’s top cop since 2014, when County Executive Edward Mangano appointed him to the post. This year is his 25th as a Nassau police officer. Krumpter had not been feeling well throughout this week, McDermott said — he skipped a memorial for a police officer upstate on Wednesday. He also did not participate in Wednesday’s Unity Tour, a bike ride to Washington, D.C., after riding last year, McDermott said. McDermott said he did not

problems Krumpter had. Krumpter told Newsday last year that he had lost 70 pounds by exercising and cutting down on junk food. Krumpter has led the Nassau Police Department into a period of historically low crime rates — major crimes fell 8.7 percent countywide in 2016 compared with the prior year. He has also bolstered community policing programs while maintaining precinct mergers, including the controversial consolidation of the 3rd and 6th Precincts on the North Shore. After more than three years in the Police Department’s top job, Krumpter has yet to be officially confirmed as the permanent police commissioner by the Nassau County Legislature.

Adelphi Lax uses Trump speech pre game Athletic Department says entrance music choice is up to players, must be approved first BY ST E P H E N ROMANO The Adelphi men’s lacrosse team is trying to make lacrosse great again. The team uses music with a speech by President Donald Trump as its entrance song, a video posted on the Barstool Sports Instagram page shows. The video, which has been viewed more than one million times, shows the team running onto the field to the speech carrying an American flag. As the team lines up ready to take the field, the speech be-

We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again. God bless you and goodnight. I love you.” The entrance music appears to receive mixed reviews with some fans cheering and others booing. It does not note at which game the video was filmed. Danny McCabe, the director of athletics and campus recreation, said the music is gins playing. “In all of our cities and in selected by the team and has all of our towns, I make this to be approved by the athletic promise,” Trump says. “We will department. “The men’s lacrosse team’s make America strong again.

regular season pre-game warmup music is selected as a team and approved for us so long as they do not contain vulgarity or inappropriate subject matter,” McCabe said. “The songs they proposed and used this season meet those guidelines. As such, we are obliged to follow the policy.” Gordon Purdie, the head coach, said the team has traditionally used “patriotic music” for its pregame warm up. “It was not intended to provoke or be taken as a political statement,” he said. “We’re sorry if anyone was offended.”

The Division II school, which is the top seed in the NCAA Tournament, beat Pace University 10-9 on Saturday, but did not run out to the Trump speech because the NCAA does not allow teams to provide warm-up music. The Panthers finished the regular season 13-3, but lost to Le Moyne College in the Northeast-10 Tournament championship game. The Panthers will face Merrimack College on Saturday at Motamed Field on the Adelphi University campus in Garden City.

Kerpen, Gilliar elected to school board Continued from Page 1 elected, but also for the Home and School Association and the parent councils for getting the budget passed. “People don’t realize the hard work these groups put in and they are really important,” he said. At 9 p.m. Tuesday, Kerpen, who ran a marathon a few years ago, told his wife, Carrie, that it felt like he was on mile 25. “I was exhausted emotionally, mentally and physically, but I knew the finish line was coming soon,” he said. “But now I am really excited because I have many plans to bring to the board.” Gilliar, a lawyer, said she believes the message she was preaching during the campaign resonated with voters. “My message has been that we’ve been reactive for too long, because of pressures of the tax cap and growing enrollment,” she said. “Even though we’ve

had budget increases, they have been small and we’ve had to cut programs that parents and teachers thought were important.” She said she wants the district to look at programs and “reaffirm what we want from school and see how we can make that happen.” “I think this is a victory for excellence in education,” she said. She said her experience as a parent to young children will set her apart from other board members. Gilliar also said her law career allows her to work and learn about other people’s situations and help their interest, a skill she said would be vital as a school board member. Smith said the election is the community voice “and I respect that.” “I wish Dave and Rachel all the best in their new positions and look forward

to watching the BOE move ahead making great decisions and progress with the community’s support,” Smith said. The budget calls for medical insurance spending increases from $19 million to $21 million as insurance rates increased this year, Mary Callahan, the district’s assistant superintendent for business, said. The district allocated funds to hire two new administrators for the district, including a new elementary assistant principal and an associate administrative literary specialist, as well as a districtwide nurse and 15.4 instructional positions, some of which will split time between schools. The proposed hires include a high school English teacher, a high school art teacher and music, health, foreign language and physical education teachers, as well as general teachers.

Calenda, Schettino in PYA hall of fame Port Washington Youth Activities is pleased to announce the induction of two new members into its Hall of Fame on the night of Friday, June 16, 2017 at the North Hempstead Country Club in Port Washington. PYA will honor longtime Board member Brian Calenda, and Anthony Schettino as former PYA athletes and key volunteers for the organization at its 27th annual fund-raising celebration. These two men, each in their own way, have helped to continue to shape and grow the organization, which was founded in 1963. Brian Calenda’s involvement with PYA began as a youngster in the mid-1960’s as a basketball and football player (in the old “Pop Warner” travel team days), and he also began a stint as a basketball referee in his youth, too. He moved on to Schreiber High School, where he played both varsity sports as well, and ran track. After his college days, remaining in Port Washington, he coached CYO Basketball, and joined the PYA Board in 1991. His PYA involvement is extensive. He not only

was the commissioner of the intramural basketball program, but he co-founded the flag football program and ran it for 10 years. That also was the amount of time he spent coaching PYA travel lacrosse. It is widely considered that his most wellknown commitment to the organization would be his handson involvement with the Field Committee in the reconstruction of Lions Field at the start of the millennium, working on the redevelopment daily for almost

two years. Anthony Schettino spent many years of his youth active in PYA Wrestling, Baseball, and Football, and played football and wrestled at Schreiber as well. It is his wrestling prowess and involvement where he has achieved the most recognition as a 4-year member of the high school varsity. He was AllConference four times, a conference champion, All-County, and an All-State Freestyle award winner. Anthony also served

as captain of the team, and was voted the team’s Most Outstanding Wrestler his senior year. He moved on to Southern Connecticut State, earned NCAA All-Region honors, and in Freestyle wrestling, he was an AllAmerican and USA World Team member, at one time ranked 9th in the world. Anthony currently teaches at the Green Vale School (where he also has coached baseball, lacrosse, and football), and is the long-time Schreiber wrestling coach, beginning in 1993. He is a member of the high school’s athletic Hall of Fame. He has run PYA’s Wrestling program for the past 10 years, helping to feed his success at the high school level. On the night of June 16th, these new inductees will join other Hall of Fame members such as Joe Duarte, Ronnie Henderson, Phil Rybecky, and Stan Plominski as past PYA honorees. The Celebration will kick off with a cocktail hour at 7:30PM, and dining and dancing from 8:30PM to 12:00 midnight. There will be a silent and a live auction, and raffle prizes, too.

The price is $175.00 per person (including open bar) in advance and is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. There are several sponsorships available to fit all budgets, plus a souvenir journal will also be published. Please mark your calendars now, and direct any inquiries and reservations to Brandon Kurz, PYA Executive Director at (516) 944-7921. You can also visit the PYA website at www. pyasports.org for more information about the Celebration and souvenir journal, and to register to attend the event. Port Washington Youth Activities (PYA) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization formed to promote the exemplary development of local youth through participation in sports. PYA teaches teamwork and individual responsibility in an atmosphere of respect and sportsmanship. While PYA places emphasis on the development of sports skills, its primary mission is to develop character and an understanding of how participation in sporting events can prepare one for success in all endeavors.

Manhasset rower picked for nationals

Students to visit Neverland If you were asked for directions to Neverland, you’d promptly answer “second star to the right and straight on till morning”. The story of “Peter Pan” is so familiar that knowing the way to the island where children never grow up is as simple as knowing the way home. But how did a group of young boys with nowhere to call home become the iconic Lost Boys? What exactly is pixie dust? “Peter and the Starcatcher” seeks to answer these questions. The enthralling prequel, directed by Schreiber High School senior Sarah DeMarino, explores

the treasured story of Peter Pan from an entirely different perspective. DeMarino, who will be attending NYU Tisch for musical theatre in the fall, breathes new life into beloved characters with her creative vision. Her production of Peter and the Starcatcher, sponsored by the Port Play Troupe, is simultaneously imaginative, playful, and thoughtful. These qualities evoke both nostalgia and discovery in the minds of any who take the journey. The production team of “Peter and the Starcatcher” consists

entirely of Schreiber students. Producer and Props/Set Designer Anna Cohen, Technical Director David Ferguson, and Stage Manager Chris Pietrantonio are all graduating along with DeMarino in June. “Peter and the Starcatcher” will play at Sousa Elementary School on May 20th at 7:00pm and May 21st at 2:00pm. Tickets can be purchased at the door. Adult tickets are available for $15. Tickets for children under 12 and senior citizens are available for $12.

Trautwig to give keynote at Adelphi Adelphi University will hold its 121st Commencement on Sunday, May 21 at 10:00 a.m. at the Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater, 1000 Ocean Parkway in Wantagh. Al Trautwig, a 1978 graduate of Adelphi and a member of Adelphi’s Athletics Hall of Fame, will serve as the commencement speaker and be recognized with an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree. During the program, Board Chair Ronald Lee ’67 and President Christine Riordan will oversee the proceedings to bestow the honorary degree and confirm nearly 2,200 graduates at the associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s levels. A Doctoral Hooding Ceremony will be held for candidates earning the highest degree, on Friday, May 19 at 4:30 p.m. in the Concert Hall of Adelphi’s Performing Arts Center, 1

South Ave. in Garden City. As a student at Adelphi University, Trautwig majored in business but had a strong interest in sports. He had been a stick boy for the New York Islanders and a ball boy for the New York Nets when both teams played at Nassau Coliseum, not far from Garden City South, his Long Island home. Today, Trautwig serves as both the pre- and postgame host

for the New York Knicks and the New York Rangers on the MSG Network. He also serves as a host of MSG’s weekly comprehensive hockey show, “Hockey Night Live,” and is the host of the original series MSG Vault, where he recounts memorable moments at Madison Square Garden. In February 2014, Trautwig reported on cross-country skiing and Nordic combined skiing as part of NBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. In 2012, he covered gymnastics on NBC’s Summer Olympics telecasts from London. Since 1984, Trautwig has announced 16 Olympic Games for NBC, ABC and CBS. Throughout his career in broadcasting, Trautwig has been nominated for, and won, numerous prestigious awards. Among his honors are four

national Emmy awards, 28 New York Emmys and a New York State Sportscaster of the Year award. He credits the experiences he had working at WBAU, Adelphi’s student-run radio station, with helping him to land his first job out of college. In the summer of 1978, he convinced the New York Apollo soccer team to let him broadcast the play-by-play of every game on WBAU. After graduating, Trautwig began his broadcasting career calling New York Apollo Soccer for WMCA radio. Over the next two years, he worked at SportsPhone, called soccer games for Cosmos radio and New York Arrows Indoor Soccer for WPIX and SportsChannel, and worked on ESPN college soccer telecasts. He went to USA Network, where he worked on more than

500 sports telecasts, including play-by-play for the North American Soccer League, NCAA College Basketball, the NHL, gymnastics, tennis and golf. Following four years at USA, Trautwig moved to ABC, where he hosted Wide World of Sports. A member of Adelphi’s Athletics Hall of Fame, Trautwig returned to his alma mater in November 2013 to speak with Adelphi students studying sport management, and again in 2014 to address Adelphi’s firstyear students at their matriculation ceremony. Trautwig and his wife, Cathleen (Catallo) Trautwig ’79, met as students at Adelphi. They have a son, Alex.

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

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

Dr. Kevin J. Tracey, Northwell Health’s Feinstein Institute for Medical Research president and CEO, is the recipient of Boston University School of Medicine’s prestigious Alumni Award. The award was presented during a ceremony Friday, May 5 at Boston University. First presented in 1954, the Alumni Awards are the highest and one of the oldest honors that Boston University School of Medicine presents its alumni. The award is presented to a graduate in recognition of outstanding and widely recognized achievement, particularly to someone who exemplifies the standards and objectives of

the School of Medicine through personal conduct, professional accomplishments, and community service. Distinct preference is given to one whose achievements have a significant impact to the medical field on a national and global scale. Tracey was honored for his work in immunology and neuroscience, which includes identifying the inflammatory reflex — the basis for the emerging new field of bioelectronic medicine. He was one of the first researchers to identify that stimulation of the vagus nerve, located in the neck, could reduce inflammation. Tracey’s work found that the

nervous system uses electrical signals to communicate information throughout the body. Virtually every cell and organ of the body is directly or indirectly controlled by these neural signals. “I am fortunate to pursue a career in research in the hope of helping patients,” said Tracey. “It is an honor to be recognized by this prestigious institution that continues to have a major impact on patients and the community.” Researchers at the Feinstein Institute are taking Tracey’s findings and continuing to learn the language of the body’s neural signals to develop devices that can monitor and treat disease and injury without the use of drugs.

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

I

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

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

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

It all depends on your taste, style and budget. Remember to order the invitations early as most companies require at least six weeks to print or engrave custom invitations. Most invitations are sent eight weeks prior to the wedding. Over order no matter how many invitations you plan to use, since you will always need more. Unless your handwriting is spectacular, consider hiring a calligrapher.

The time of day will dictate what type of reception you have. Discuss your favorite foods with your caterer. Choose a menu that can satisfy “all the guests at the same time.” If you have many vegetarian guests, offer a selection of vegetables but do not forget that other people may prefer poultry, fish or meat. Every dish will not appeal to everyone, but if you have a selection, there will be enough to satisfy everyone. Continued on Page 77

Real Estate Tip From a Professional:

LISTING YOUR PROPERTY

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

COMMUNITY NEWS

Two new members added to council The Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency, Long Island’s premier provider of substance abuse services and prevention programs, adds two new members to the Board of Directors, Michael Martino and Jeanne Poscillico Leonard. Executive Director Steve Chassman said, “LICADD welcomes Michael Martino and Jeanne Poscillico Leonard to our Board of Directors. Each brings a level of expertise and passion that will help to further our mission of offering support to individuals and families struggling with the challenge of addiction.” Martino is the Community Relations Manager for SUEZ, a world-wide environmental organization that operates and manages Nassau County’s wastewater system. He offers a wealth of knowledge and experience from a ca-

reer spent working in media and public relations. While serving as managing editor of the Long Island Press, he became aware of the opiate scourge that had taken over Long Island. He was part of a team that exposed the issue in a series of award-winning articles. While working on these stories Michael met family after

family who told their heartbreaking stories of addiction and loss. He is looking forward to sharing his time and talent as a member of the LICADD Board of Directors, as he says, “While my work in the press helped bring some attention to the challenges of a drug epidemic, it is clear that almost ten years later the crisis is still going strong and the need for services is more vital than ever. I look forward to serving on the LICADD Board of Directors, working alongside staff and volunteers to offer support and options to individuals who struggle with addiction.” Poscillico Leonard is a Gold Circle of Excellence real estate broker with Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. She has lived and worked in Cold Spring Harbor and Huntington since 1968, raising five children and operating two local

businesses, including a real estate investment company. To the LICADD Board of Directors, she brings 30 years of experience in real estate sales and investment and a desire to lend her support to LICADD, especially during the current drug epidemic on Long Island. About her appoinment, Leonard says, “I have always been an active member of my community

– volunteering and contributing for issues near and dear to my heart. As I gained a better understanding of how the drug crisis is affecting our neighborhoods today, I decided to volunteer my time working with LICADD. I look forward to helping further the LICADD mission of support, education prevention and advocacy for individuals and families struggling with addiction.” For 61 years, The Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency has been Long Island’s premier, non-profit agency providing life-saving alcohol and drug prevention and intervention services to at-risk children, individuals, and families across the region.

Cross Harbor freight tunnel lacks funding

G

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

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

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

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

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

Residents question Baxter House decision

C

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Martins presents county Games on holidays ethics reform package READERS WRITE

show disrespect

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

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

LIRR failing to meet North Shore needs

I

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Village tells owner to demolish house Continued from Page 1 ments for preservation.” Trustee Chris Ficalora said the building inspector, Joseph Saladino, “has the legal jurisdiction to issue such a notice under the law when life-safety issues are present, without the approval of the Landmarks Preservation Commission.” “The building inspector determined that the structure is unstable and has a high probability of collapsing,” Ficalora said. “Both an independent structural engineer and an architect concurred with the building inspector’s determination.” A. Thomas Levin, Wu’s attorney, said Wu is “pleased” with the village’s decision. Her contractors will “continue to compile the extensive paperwork to meet the village’s exacting requirements,” Levin said. Ficalora said the demolition will begin when Wu completes her paperwork and the permit is approved. Wu has yet to submit post-demolition plans, Ficalora said. He said the village believes Wu must rebuild a replica of the home under the landmark law, but Levin said, “Our position is that the village has no authority to do this.” Ficalora said the disagreement could be the start of a legal battle. The building inspector also sent a document with 16 specific requirements that the owner must adhere to before, during and after the demolition. Last month, the Landmarks Preservation Commission said Wu had violated the village’s landmark preservation law by letting the home fall into disrepair. Wu has authorized village officials to go onto the property and salvage parts of the home for historical purposes.

The Village of Baxter Estates told the owner of the historic Baxter House to demolish the home. Three residents, Michael Scotto, Kathy Coley and Gloria Marmor, all of whom have spoken against the home’s being demolished, said in a news release that “the village code does not allow the building inspector to bypass the Landmark Preservation Commission and order demolition.” Ficalora said, “They are completely

wrong.” “They are also saying the village is in violation of the law, which we are not (even though they do not indicate what law we have broken),” Ficalora said in an email. “They are also spreading that the ‘vast majority of BE’ does not want the burnt house torn down. They are wrong! They are once again on a merit less smear

campaign.” The commission passed a resolution authorizing the building inspector to issue violations under the historic preservation law to Wu. “There is no doubt that the continued existence of the fire-damaged structure is a hazard, and a blight on her [Wu’s] property,” Levin said in an email.

Rain can’t dampen PortFest spirit Continued from Page 2 raising more than $300,000 since its inception. “We’ve changed the conversation that the arts are important to the lifeblood of the community,” he said. Charles Tam, 40, of Port Washington and his two children Chase, 5, and Portia, 3, were busy at South Salem Elementary School’s painting board working on a painting. Tam said it would make a nice Mother’s Day gift for his wife from the children. He said he’s come to PortFest in the past and enjoys the activities. “It’s always a nice event for the kids,” he said.

Ron Restivo, 44, brought his two sons to PortFest. They enjoy playing sports but one of his sons, Adrien, 8, enjoys exploring his artistic side as well so that’s why they came out. Restivo said he enjoyed the day’s activities, but would have preferred that the weather was more accommodating so it could be held outside. “This is great, but outside it is really nice,” he said. “You can see everyone from the community here. We have a great community here and it’s very close-knit.” Michele Posner, president of the HEARTS board of directors, said the organization has changed hundreds

of students over the past few years through the arts programs the organization funds. She’s noticed students with introverted personalities become more outgoing after getting involved in the activities they fund, she said. “I see the artistic talent flourishing through the activities they participate in,” Posner said. She said that’s one reason the board members and others continue to volunteer. “We all, collectively, feel proud to bring this to the community, the community that we love,” she said. Giovanna Fitzpatrick, a pre-K

teacher at John J. Daly Elementary School in Port Washington, recently received financial support from HEARTS to incorporate dance into her reading curriculum for eight weeks. Fitzpatrick said a lot of her students’ parents couldn’t afford to enroll their child in a dance class and that’s why she sought funding from HEARTS. The eight-week program ended in March, much to the dismay of the students, she said. “I know some of the family’s income is so small they couldn’t afford this class and I wanted to help enrich their (students’) lives,” she said.

Village helped Terry, records suggest Continued from Page 3 Connell’s letter. The other two are private companies, identified in the letter as “Law Firm #1” and “Company #1.” This apparent connection with Manorhaven sheds more light on the help Terry allegedly received in hiding his tax debt exceeding $1 million, which he accumulated despite making more than $200,000 a year as a municipal attorney. John Marzulli, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office for New York’s Eastern District, said he could not confirm or deny whether Manorhaven is Municipality #2. Donald Badaczewski, the village justice court clerk, said Terry’s Form 1099 for 2010 could have been destroyed in a fire at a Brooklyn warehouse where the village stored records or otherwise lost by a previous administration. “The village feels strongly that they did send a 1099 and that it was lost in the fire in Brooklyn,” village Mayor Jim Avena said. Trustee Rita DiLucia, who was on the village Board of Trustees in 2010, said she had no knowledge of whether the village issued Terry a 1099 or not that year, intentionally or otherwise. Fielding could not be reached for comment. But Avena described him as “one of

the finest, most honest men I’ve ever met” and said he would never intentionally withhold a Form 1099. Avena denied that the village was complicit in Terry’s alleged tax evasion. He highly doubts that Manorhaven officials were those whom Terry told not to open IRS mail, he said, as Terry was not in the village office on a daily basis. “Based upon the circumstance and the people involved, I would absolutely find it extraordinary that I was wrong on this one,” Avena said. Terry declined to comment for this story, as did his attorney, Stephen P. Scaring. Terry has also pleaded not guilty to eight charges of tax fraud brought in New York State courts. He is next due in federal court on June 16 and in state court on June 23. McConnell’s Jan. 31 letter asked U.S. District Court Judge Joanna Seybert to detain Terry until his trial. Seybert denied the request. Terry was released on bail and first confined to his home, but was later allowed to leave. A listing of Manorhaven’s payments to Terry shows 15 checks with dates in 2010 totaling $73,533. But a 16th check for $3,200, dated

Jan. 1, 2011, brings the total amount to $76,733. Badaczewski said it is possible that the Jan. 1, 2011, check was actually paid in late 2010. The 25 other payments to Terry in 2011 total $80,000, matching the amount on his Form 1099 for that year. Terry allegedly cashed the checks at the bank where they were drawn to prevent the IRS from garnishing his wages, according to McConnell’s letter. Sharon Natalie Abramski, the current village clerk, said she had no knowledge of whether Manorhaven was Municipality #2 as described in McConnell’s letter. Asked whether she thought it was possible, Abramski said, “I would not speculate. That would be silly for me to do. I don’t know how they did things. … I’ve only been the clerk since last July, so I’ve kind of revamped things.” Records that other municipalities for which Terry worked provided in response to Freedom of Information requests do not match the description of Municipality #2. The Village of Port Washington North paid Terry $14,643.75 in 2011 and 2012, according to Forms 1099 and village financial records. The Long Beach Housing Authority

only employed him as a consultant in 2015, paying him $12,000. Terry was on the Nassau County payroll as an employee for the Nassau Board of Elections, and the county did not issue him any Forms 1099, Sergio A. Blanco, a deputy county comptroller, said in an email. Blank Slate Media’s requests to the Freeport Community Development Agency, the Roosevelt Public Library and the Town of North Hempstead are still pending. Terry also did work for the North Hempstead Housing Authority, federal prosecutors said in a January news release. But Sean T. Rainey, the authority’s executive director, said Terry never worked for the authority. Terry has blamed his tax debt on “Type-A workaholic compulsion with self-denial and truly catastrophic health issues.” Scaring told Seybert in a February letter that the allegations against him have left his family with little income. Terry is also under investigation for his role in bid-rigging and procurement fraud schemes in Nassau County, according to McConnell’s Jan. 31 letter. He has not been charged with any crimes related to that investigation. Manorhaven received two separate federal subpoenas in 2007 and 2016 seeking records related to Terry. The village received a separate subpoena in 2015 for records relating to contracts with eight village vendors.

Sands Point, Manorhaven elections Continued from Page 2 is happy on the board and hopefully the public, too.” From 1979 to 1991, Ullman sat on the Port Washington school board to initiate change, rather than be someone who settles for it, she said. While serving on the school board, Ullman said, she was faced with the difficult task of redistricting 50 percent of the children because the district was losing students. She said that at the school’s peak, there were about 7,000 students, but suddenly there was a drop, which forced the redistricting. In 1994, Ullman said, she ran for a

village trustee seat, seeking to use her experience on the school board to get the public more involved in village government. She was elected and said she eventually learned the difference between the two boards: “The school board had much more support of many administrators and school members. The Board of Trustees need to work together as five people in order for things to get done for the village.” Ullman is the village’s roads commissioner. “Port Washington is a close community and when you come to Port, there is nowhere else to go,” she said. “I think

we’re a really great community.” Marc Silbert has been a trustee since 2001 and serves as the police commissioner and chief emergency manager. Efforts to reach Silbert were unavailing. When Jim Avena was elected mayor of Manorhaven last June, he appointed Popeleski to fill his trustee seat. Popeleski, who worked for the Port Washington Water District for 29 years, said his time on the board has been very educational. “I find being a trustee very rewarding,” he said. “As a board, we’re moving forward in the right direction and want to keep plugging away at the important

things in the village.” Popeleski, who has lived in Manorhaven since 1999, is the president the Atlantic Hook and Ladder Company in Port Washington and is also an excaptain. He said he is running to continue improving on the gains the village has made in the past year, including improving the infrastructure by getting a road study and sewer study completed and improving snow removal and keeping the streets clean. “The streets are a lot cleaner,” he said. “If you drive around the village, you’ll see a big difference, not because the village was dirty but because we fine tuned a lot of things.” Di Lucia and Gallanter did not respond to a request for comment.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Garage dedicated to Johnny Grillo What’s your favorite room in your home? For some, it may be difficult to choose just one. But John Grillo, North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center’s former board president, says there’s no doubt which room his father Johnny would have chosen: the garage! In honor of his father’s memory, John Grillo, in addition to contributing and helping to raise funds for the renovation of the Guidance Center’s garage, made a separate significant gift to officially name it “Johnny’s Garage.” On May 8, several staff, clients and community members joined together to dedicate the garage to the senior Grillo, whom his son describes with great affection. “Johnny’s Garage is dedicated to my father, a man who was always fixing something. He was military trained during WWII as an aircraft and

auto mechanic, but was equally comfortable around anything with an engine. It made absolutely no difference whether it was manufactured in 1925 or 1999. He was truly a mechanic’s mechanic with an unrestrained passion to repair things….anything.” Grillo shared his experiences watching his father working on a 1957 Jaguar XK-120, which hadn’t run in more than 15 years: “He charged the battery, removed and re-

placed the spark plugs, installed a new set of points, a new condenser and rotor, drained and changed the oil and oil filter, checked the spark, adjusted the timing, cleaned out some very gunked up carburetors, sprayed some Marvel Mystery oil in the cylinders, turned the engine over, and then vroom….. five hours later this classic car was running like a top.” He proudly noted that his father was

happy to help anyone in need. “All of our friends, neighbors and relatives knew that if they had a problem, just go see Johnny Grillo and he’d fix it. I think his confidence and belief in himself was the major ingredient in his magnificent tool bag.” Also that evening, the garage was “christened” by the Guidance Center’s Parent Support Group, where clients utilized the garage as a painting studio and created vibrant canvases of sunflowers. “We’re so grateful to John Grillo for his longtime support of the Guidance Center,” said Executive Director Andrew Malekoff. “John is clearly like his dad in that when there is a need, he’s right there to help provide a solution. His service to our mission has been unwavering.” For more information about the Guidance Center, visit www.northshorechildguidance.org or call (516) 626-1971.

Bone marrow transplant reunion

Christopher Court, 52, of Farmingdale, finally had the chance to personally thank Cecil “Harvey” Creasey, a junior at Virginia Tech, for the bone marrow that helped Mr. Court survive his ongoing battle with acute myeloid leukemia. The two have only communicated once by mail since the successful bone marrow transplant at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset in the summer of 2015, but had never set eyes on each other. Court, a project manager at a law firm, said he was frightened when he learned he had AML, characterized by the rapid growth of abnormal white blood cells that accumulate in the bone marrow and interfere with the production of normal blood cells. “It was very difficult to hear that diagnosis,” said Court. “But today is a day of great happiness. I’m so glad to have

the opportunity to meet Harvey. It’s just amazing to me that someone so young could have such an impact on my life.” “Chris is such a kind man with a wonderful family,” said his physician, Dr. Ruthee-Lu Bayer, director of the Don Monti Bone Marrow and Stem Cell Transplantation Program. “It’s always such a thrill for us to see how a bone marrow transplant can give a person a second chance at life. And what a wonderful thing for Harvey to have done —

to become a hero at such a young age. I truly believe that both lives are changed forever when a bone marrow transplant takes place.” Harvey said the idea of saving another person’s life is still sinking in. “I decided to donate bone marrow on a whim,” he said. “It was such an easy process — just a cheek swab — so when I got the call a year later that I was a match, it was really stunning. This is the most amazing thing that’s happened in my life.” Court summed up the importance of the event: “We have the same bone marrow now, which means we are connected in a very special way,” he said. “I am so grateful for the opportunity to share our story.” The reunion took place at the annual Celebration of Life Dinner, sponsored by the Don Monti Memorial Research Foundation, held at the Crest Hollow

Country Club in Woodbury. The event is a highlight for bone marrow donors and recipients, family members, health-care professionals and supporters. In June 1972, 16-year-old Don Monti died at North Shore University Hospital of myeloblastic leukemia. Within days of his death, his parents Tita and Joseph Monti committed themselves to founding an organization in his memory, dedicated to the mission of finding a cure for cancer. They established the Don Monti Memorial Research Foundation at the hospital, and raised and contributed tens of millions of dollars over the years toward cancer research, education, fellowship and patient care. Today, the program is under the stewardship of Caroline Monti Saladino, whose parents began this vital work more than 40 years ago.

Historian honored by cultural group SCW Cultural Arts at Emanuel presented Presidential Historian Douglas Brinkley, who offered the talk, “The Evolution of the American Presidency.”

They were joined by children from local synagogues who performed.

Pediatric cancer support campaign This May, Stop & Shop customers will have the opportunity to support pediatric cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center by purchasing discount coupons at checkout. Customers will receive $10 worth of coupons for just a $2 donation, and a new series of coupons will be made available every two weeks during the eight-week fundraising effort. The coupons will be available at all area Stop & Shop stores. Proceeds will benefit Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Department of Pediatrics. Since 2001, Stop & Shop has raised almost $70 million for charitable causes, with $17.9 million given to support

pediatric cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering. This year, the company goal is to raise another $1.3 million on behalf of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Department of Pediatrics. 12-year old Esmeralda (“Ezzy”) of Uniondale was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a cancer of the bone marrow and blood, in the spring of 2015. “I was very scared when the doctors told me that I had cancer,” she said. “I did not know if there was any hope for recovery. I am so grateful that my mom got me to the right doctors and I now know that because of the care I received at Memorial Sloan Kettering that I will get better.”

Originally from El Salvador, Ezzy is home-schooled. She loves to draw, paint, ride her scooter and play with her stuffed animals. Her favorite subject is science and she hopes to pursue a career as a pediatrician. “This campaign with Memorial Sloan Kettering will help

ensure families get the best care possible for their children,” said Bob Yager, Senior Vice President and Division Lead of Stop & Shop New York Metro Division. “We are so appreciative of the generosity of each of our customers who continue to make this campaign a success. By working together, we are proud that Stop & Shop and our customers can make a difference.” “The support Stop & Shop

has provided us for the past sixteen years has allowed us to continue to fulfill our mission. We hope to not only cure childhood cancer, but to send our patients back to their homes, schools, families and friends in exactly the condition they were in before this devastating diagnosis,” says Paul Meyers, MD, Vice Chair of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Department of Pediatrics. “The hard work each Stop & Shop employee puts into this campaign truly pays off. We see better outcomes for kids and for their families. On behalf of the physicians and scientists who work tirelessly to conquer childhood cancers – and the children who will benefit now and in the future – I extend our deepest gratitude.”

‘We Persist’ forum held April 29

Reach Out America held its women’s forum entitled “We Persist” on April 29. From 10 a.m. till 4 p.m., guests attended four one-hour panel discussions on women and elections, women and health care, women and peace, and women and religion that were moderated by committee chairs Sandie Salat, Shirley Romaine and Sybil Bank. After former state Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel started the proceedings with a lively inside look at what it means to be a female legislator in Albany, ROA vice president Patty Katz led the first discussion, about the challenges women face in getting elected.

Her panelists were Liz Abzug and Marie Wilson, known and respected feminist activists. The second session, with New York Times staff writer Roni Rabin and single-payer advocate Margaret Flowers, dealt with the health care obstacle course women must navigate. Next, Cora Weiss, a venerable peace spokesperson and Nobel Prize nominee, discussed the historical and current involvement of women in the search for diplomatic solutions to international conflicts. And finally, LIU philosophy professor Shaireen Rasheed and Unitarian Universalist pastor Natalie Fenimore talk-

ed about how women should think about faith in an age of both newfound inclusion and traditional practice. Lunch and a musical interlude rounded out the day. The weather was flawless, so participants took advantage of the beauty of the venue, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Shelter Rock’s Veatch House, and its surrounding grounds. From September to June, on the second Wednesday of the month, in the Social Hall at UUCSR, the general membership meets to discuss committee agenda items and hear an invited speaker address issues of timely urgency. This year Reach Out

Eisenhower Park Memorial Day parade Memorial Day weekend has become a family- and friend-oriented time to get together outdoors, but some gave all for the freedoms the country has today. The Nassau County American Legion Auxiliary will be joining several veterans organizations on that day. Join the members for two hours for the UVO Memorial Day Ceremony at Eisenhower Park, Field 6 at the Veteran’s Plaza.

In the afternoon, Auxiliary members will be heading to Long Island National Cemetery at 2040 Wellwood Ave. in Farmingdale for the 2 p.m. Memorial Day ceremony, which ends about 3 p.m. These two events are open to all the public. Anyone interested in becoming a member of Nassau County American Legion Auxiliary should ask any one of the current members how they may qualify.

Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine’s Class of 2017 became the nation’s newest doctors at a commencement ceremony held on Monday, May 8 at the John Cranford Adams Playhouse at Hofstra University. Degree recipients were two PhDs and 72 MDs, including single parent Patricia Driscoll of East Hills whose young children, ages 6 and 5, can add “doctor” to the list of words they use to describe their highly motivated mom. “I started out in data science research, but as I got further along in my career, it became more important to honor my commitment to social justice,” said Driscoll, 40, conferred a degree in medicine and one of 12 members of her class to be elected to the Gold Humanism Honor Society as exemplars of compassionate patient care. “I’m so grateful to be able to share this moment with my kids.” This year’s commencement proceedings were presided over by Dr. Lawrence G. Smith, dean of the School of Medicine; Stuart Rabinowitz, president of Hofstra University; and Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health. Dr. Howard Dean, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee and 79th governor of Vermont, gave the keynote address.

“The valuable training that happens here at Hofstra [Northwell] is being copied by the major universities in the country,” said Dean, who earned a medical degree from Albert Einstein School of Medicine before entering politics. “You are in the middle of tremendous change without even realizing it.” Hofstra Northwell’s third graduating class raised the bar in diversity with the school’s largest number of AfricanAmerican and Latino students entering medicine and residencies at top-choice programs throughout the country. The class also includes the school’s first naval graduate. In July, these newly minted physicians will begin the next

phase of their training within leading institutions such as Stanford University, Baylor College of Medicine, Vanderbilt University, Yale University, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital (Harvard University). More than half will remain in the eastern region for residency, including over 20% at Northwell, while others journey to major centers across the United States. “I’m heading to the Bronx for a residency in primary care and social internal medicine at Einstein-Montefiore,” said Driscoll flanked by her children throughout the entire graduation ceremony, including the official presentation of her degree. “We’re ready to get started.”

Mental health walk raises $209K

Ann Allen Cetrino Family and Friends Team; #2 Port Voices Team

A walk for mental health by the National Alliance on Mental Illness at Jones Beach on May 6 raised $209,000.00 with fundraising efforts continuing through July 7. “Mental illness affects 1 in 5, making NAMIWalks a community event. I want to thank Michael Dwyer, Associate Executive Director of Zucker Hillside Hospital who spoke of their commitment to serving our population and their long-term relationship with us and state Senator John E. Brooks, 8th Senatorial District, Ranking Minority Member of the Senate Committee on Mental Health who clearly understands the need to improve access to mental health and substance abuse services. We can’t do it alone!” said Janet Susin, NAMI Queens/Nassau president. Janet Reilly, NAMI Queens/ Nassau 2nd vice president and team captain of Ann Allen Ce-

trino Family and Friends, the Premier Sponsor, motivated the crowd. “We have made great progress in ending stigma and spreading awareness of the struggle, needs, and rights of our loved ones and families,” she said. “ Legislators and our communities are listening and responding. Magnify our voices, become advocates and influencers … there’s more to do!” Team Port Voices, Port Washington middle and high school students, have raised $6,504.72. Their message states, “We are trying to stop the stigma that prevents young people from getting help from biological brain disorders. We are the voice of the many people who have these disorders through no fault of their own”.

That’s typical of the league.” In the bottom of the first inning, Chaminade had an early opportunity to take the lead with runners on first and third with one out. Zawol worked his way out of a jam by getting Shane Sullivan to pop out and struck out Joseph Salamone to end the inning. Chaminade threatened again in the bottom of the second inning with one out and runners in scoring position. Zawol struck out Sarnelli and got Matthew Corinaldesi to ground out to end the threat.

During the at bat, Ferraro said he was looking for a good pitch to hit against Zawol, whom they chased after the double, to take the lead. “I knew he wasn’t throwing his curveball for a strike,” Ferraro said. “I was just looking for a fastball. He gave me one with two strikes and I put one away.” Chaminade added two more runs on a triple by Ragno and an RBI groundout by Sarnelli to take a 5-0 lead. Holy Trinity rallied for four

This was a big win for our team and the girls worked real hard to earn it.” Wheatley head coach Terry Grace said they anticipated that this game would go down to the wire. “We knew it would be this kind of game right till the end,” Grace said. “We just thought we’d be pulling ahead instead of them. We got exactly what we expected.” In the first half, each team
