Audit hits Herricks payments

COME TOGETHER

State finds high overtime expenses BY TOM M CC A RT HY The Herricks school district made overtime payments to custodial employees that may not have been necessary, state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s office has concluded in an audit. The comptroller’s report on Aug. 30 found that from July 1, 2017, to Oct. 31, 2018, district officials did not preapprove and adequately monitor overtime for custodial employees. Auditors found that the district’s budget for custodial employees’ overtime was exceeded in each of the last three years, by $192,608 in 2015-16, $138,456 in 2016-17 and $90,171 in 2017-18. During the audit period officials paid $763,633 in overtime, including $490,171 (64 percent) paid to 45 custodial employees. According to the comptroller, 10 custodial employees were paid a total $35,017, or 43 percent of total overtime paid to these employees, for nonemergencies. State auditors said some of these payments could have been avoided or reduced.

Judge halts N. Side fence work E.W. Village and school district to meet in court Sept. 25 over permit lawsuit BY TOM M CC A RT HY

A judge has temporarily halted construction of a 6-foot aluminum fence at the North Side Elementary School in a legal conflict over the fence’s height between the Village of Continued on Page 75 East Williston and the East Wil-

liston school district. “On Aug. 26, a judge issued a temporary restraining order so we had to halt all work and secure the site,” Diane Castonguay, the district’s assistant superintendent for business, said at a meeting Monday. Construction of the fence, which is intended to improve security, started on Aug. 8 after the district got approval from the state. The two parties are due

back in state Supreme Court Sept. 25, said John Sheahan, an attorney representing the district. The conflict is over the height of the fence, which the village contends will violate the zoning code because it would be two feet above the maximum. Sheahan argued that approval by the state Education Department is all that is required. In an Aug. 23 newsletter sent to residents by village Clerk Ma-

rie Hausner, she wrote that the village board, through its legal counsel, sent a letter to the East Williston school district in May asking it to file an application for a permit and comply with the village zoning requirements. Rather than doing so, the school district initiated legal action (an Article 78 proceeding in court) to require the withdrawal of the village’s letter, Hausner wrote. Continued on Page 75

‘Game upped,’ Mineola Harrison garage set prepares for street fair for summer 2020 More kids rides, local businesses at chamber event 2nd St. garage work to start in 2021 BY TOM M CC A RT HY

Mineola Mayor Scott Strauss will not have to spend the entire day of the Mineola Street Fair in the dunk tank, according to the Mineola Chamber of Commerce. BY TOM M CC A RT HY The Mineola Chamber of Commerce’s Tony Lubrano said members of the group “really upped our game” for this year’s street fair on Sept 22. The street fair, held on Jericho Turnpike, is a big one for local commerce. While Lubrano is a former president of the chamber, he is still actively involved in the street fair as a member of a chamber committee in charge of it. “We’ve added a lot of more pieces to the puzzle,” Lubrano said. “We’re trying to get as many local businesses involved.” Lubrano said the chamber has gotten more children’s rides, a new dunk tank, horse and pony rides, and an “Escape the Room” bus. Lubrano said the event started as an agricultural fair named the Mineola Fair in the late 1800s. Lubrano said when he moved to Mineola in 2003, the street fair was more of a “craft

show kind of fair” with a focus on children’s shows at Mineola Memorial Park. The fair was moved to Jericho Turnpike for the past five years because the chamber’s goal is to help local businesses, Lubrano said, and it was felt that the park was too small to accomplish that. Lubrano said businesses that could not participate in New Hyde Park’s Community Day, which replaced the village’s annual street fair, will be at the Mineola street fair. The chamber’s event has the support of the Mineola village board, which gave Lubrano time to speak about the fair at a meeting last Wednesday. The chamber has “a big investment in this community and if you don’t have a strong business community our residential community won’t be as strong,” Mineola Mayor Scott Strauss said. “Their success is our success.” A big staple of the fair has been Strauss spending the whole

time in the dunk tank. But he will be getting a break this year, Lubrano said. Rather than the mayor sitting in the dunk tank all day waiting to getting dunked by residents, business owners and trustees, this year he will do it for only 30 minutes, Lubrano said. Lubrano said some of the local leaders who will be taking shifts in the dunk tank include County Legislature Presiding Officer Richard Nicolello (RNew Hyde Park), former Mineola Mayor Jack Martins, Deputy Mayor Paul Perreira and Village Clerk Joe Scalero. Lubrano said the chamber will be getting photos of Strauss “revenge” dunking other local leaders and trustees after many years in the dunk tank. “What makes this place a community is all these little things where almost everybody knows each other,” Lubrano said. All money raised from the fair will go to the Mineola Junior Firefighters, he said.

The construction of the Harrison Avenue parking garage in Mineola is on schedule. The garage should be erected by December and open for use by next summer, village Trustee Dennis Walsh said last week. “The Harrison Avenue garage is going quite well,” he said. According to the MTA, the six-level, 551-space structure is approximately 25 percent done. “I believe that the MTA said that they would be completed with the erection of that parking garage in three months. Three months seems pretty fast,” Walsh said. The parking garage at Harrison Avenue is one of two to be built in conjunction with the Long Island Rail Road’s Expansion Project. Work is planned to erect another parking garage on Second Street between Willis Avenue and Main Street. Work on that garage is to begin in the first quarter of 2021, according to the MTA. “As part of the LIRR Expansion Project from Floral Park to Hicksville, new parking facilities will be constructed throughout the project corridor. Additional park-

ing in Mineola was identified as a community priority by feedback received as part of a comprehensive environmental review and public input process for the LIRR Expansion Project in 2017,” according to an MTA website. The LIRR Expansion Project will add a third track on the Main Line from Floral Park to Hicksville and is being carried out by 3rd Track Constructors. The project began in January 2018 and is to be completed by late 2022. Its development areas include Carle Place, Floral Park, Garden City, Garden City Park, Hicksville, Mineola, New Cassel, New Hyde Park and Westbury. In a recent quarterly “community scorecard” by the third track developers in project development areas, Mineola placed sixth out of nine communities surveyed with a 74.38 percent approval rating. Mineola Mayor Scott Strauss said in a previous statement on the developer’s community outreach efforts: “I think it’s a great tool they are using to hopefully mitigate any negative impacts on the communities involved. I hope as many people as possible participate in these surveys.”

F.P. challenges Belmont OK in court Claims state agency failed to address village concerns in granting approval to development BY TOM M CC A RT HY The Village of Floral Park said Tuesday that it is seeking judicial review of the approval of the Belmont Park redevelopment project in state Supreme Court. In a newsletter, the village said that on Monday the village “commenced an article 78 proceeding in the Supreme Court of the State of New York” into the project’s approval by Empire State Development, a state agency. An Article 78 proceeding is used to appeal the decision of a state or local agency to the New York courts, according to LawNY. “The village was compelled to take this step because ESD failed to address the concerns of our residents and failed to mitigate the very real consequences to our village that will result from the massive size and scope of the project,” Floral Park Mayor Dominick Longobardi said in the newsletter. Jack Sterne, a spokesman for Empire State Development, which is overseeing the project, said that the agency cannot comment on litigation, but said that the agency has been transparent and open to public comments, and has adhered

to all state laws. “This project has gone through a transparent, public process over multiple years, and has adhered to all requirements under state law,” he said. “We look forward to moving forward with this project, which will deliver thousands of jobs and billions in economic activity to Nassau County.” The project includes a 19,000seat arena for the New York Islanders, 350,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, a hotel with 250 rooms and parking on 43 acres of vacant state-owned property at Belmont Park. Concerns have been raised by the village over the project’s impact on traffic, the constant influx of commuters coming into Floral Park for Islander games, Floral Park becoming a “soft target” for terrorism, propane cylinders being installed for the project and the location of a new LIRR station at the north parking lot of Belmont Park to support the project. With the project’s construction plans being approved by the state’s Franchise Oversight Board on Aug. 13, Sterne said that the project will move forward. Longobardi said at a village

Longobardi said that his call for a meeting with Cuomo at the village meeting was an attempt to meet with state representatives sooner because “preliminary work” is underway at the project area.

Schnirman returns overpayment Combination of sick and vacation days as city manager cost Long Beach extra $52,780 BY R OB E RT PE L A E Z

Nassau County Comptroller Jack Schnirman said he has returned the full $52,780 in overpayments he received after resigning as city manager of Long Beach.

Schnirman, a Democrat, said in a statement that he is “aware of the recommendations in the State Comptroller’s draft audit and, in short, I agree.” Before being elected comptroller in 2017, Schnirman served as the Long Beach city manager for six years begin-

Jack Schnirman during his campaign for Nassau County comptroller in 2017.

Comptroller’s Office, Long Beach now has the opportunity to implement even more reform,” Schnirman said, “and the right thing here is to do my part first.” Schnirman’s overpayments were a combination of accrued sick and vacation days that exceeded the amount allowed under city codes, resulting in his getting total payments of $108,000. “I now understand that the methods Long Beach has been using to calculate payout amounts for at least the last 25 years are different than the stricter formula originally set out in the City Code,” Schnirman said. “I have always said that I didn’t want any money that I shouldn’t have received, and would return any overage,” he said. “And that’s exactly what I’m doing.” Long Beach City Council President Anissa Moore said that necessary steps would be taken to make sure that everything would be in compliance with city codes as soon as possible. “We will get to the bottom of this,” Moore said at an Aug. 20 City Council meeting, “and we intend to seek restitution for all that’s owed to the city.” PHOTO COURTESY OF KIM DEVLIN Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas is investigating the matter.

Bonanno pleads not guilty to charges BY R OB E RT PE L A E Z Great Neck resident Matthew Bonanno, a plastic surgeon, pleaded not guilty on Tuesday in Westchester County Court to 53 counts of criminal possession of weapons. The charges include 11 counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree, 38 counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree and four counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree. Bonanno’s lawyer, Paul Gentile, told Westchester County Judge George E. Fufidio Jr. during an arraignment that a police search of Bonanno’s car was a violation of his client’s constitutional rights. Gentile said the case involved “a police officer without probable cause, without a warrant, without anything, breaking into a person’s car and seizing all the guns,” according to courtroom footage from News 12 Westchester. Bonanno’s arrest on the night of Aug. 12 led local Tuckahoe village police to find five assault rifles, three handguns, over 1,600 rounds of ammunition, handcuffs, a stun gun, military-style knives, binoculars and other paraphernalia. According to the Westchester County district attorney’s office, the Tuckahoe Police Department obtained search warrants for the defendant’s residences in Mount Pleasant and Great Neck, where additional weaponry was found. “The residence in Long Island yielded another large cache of assault rifles, shotgun, handguns, high capacity magazines, body armor, hundreds of rounds

ammunition, smoke grenades and other weapons,” the Westchester district attorney’s office said earlier in a news release. “Those weapons were turned over to the Nassau County Police Department.“ Gentile has insisted that his client is of “no danger, nor has ever been.” He described Bonanno as an avid gun collector and outdoorsman. Police arrested the plastic surgeon in response to a tip from someone who had overheard threats he allegedly made against his estranged wife, Marianna Soropolous. Gentile said Soropolous, a Tuckahoe resident, had reached out to his office specifically to say that there was “no basis to the claim” of an alleged plan to kill her. On Tuesday, Soropolous was present in court, requesting that an order of protection she was given by the Tuckahoe Justice Court be lifted. Soropolous said that she did not ask for the order. “She wants her ex-husband out where he can provide for his family … She told the police this fact and they ignored it,” Gentile said in court. Bonanno’s bail was set at $100,000 cash or a $500,000 bond on Aug. 21, and those terms will remain, Judge Fufidio said in response to Gentile’s efforts to reduce the bail. “I do not believe that if he gets a fair hearing, those guns can survive a motion to suppress,” Gentile said. “I don’t see Matthew Bonnano getting a fair trial here.” Bonanno could face more than 30 years in prison if convicted, according to Newsday.

Church takes on ‘toxic followership’ Community church of E.W. starts ‘engaged faith initiative’ with lecture on Jonestown BY TOM M CC A RT HY

For its annual “Homecoming” event, the Community Church of East Williston decided to do something a little different, urging followers to know the telltale signs of a toxic leader. The church hosted a lecture by Wendy M. Edmonds after the Homecoming mass and brunch on Sunday. For her graduate research, Edmonds interviewed survivors of the Jonestown massacre, where more than 900 members of the Peoples Temple, led by Jim Jones, died in Guyana in 1978 by mass suicide. The theme of the lecture, according to the church’s pastor, the Rev. Marcus Tillery, was “toxic followership.” Tillery said this was the first time the church has hosted a guest speaker during a homecoming event. “The idea is that we take the burden off of leaders and characterize in everything based on how leaders work to actually depending upon those people who would follow in a given situation,” Tillery said in an interview. “One of the central themes of the gospel is ‘be a witness.’” “We have to tell the truth of toxic people and we have to not let it happen again,” Edmonds said. She said she remembered asking herself when seeing the massacre on television as a child, “Who would follow someone into

the event said. “Jim Jones was a very evil person,” Edmonds said. Jones’ personality was charming and people who liked him only knew his facade, but one must judge a leader by his behavior, Edmonds said. Edmonds is a lecturer at Bowie State University’s graduate program in the department of behavioral science and human ser-

vices. Edmonds said Jones played mind games with his followers, telling them exactly what they needed to hear, separating married couples, telling couples their children were his property and forcing them to hear his voice at all times on loudspeakers at Jonestown. Edmonds said that the faithful must be “courageous followers” and be able to call out behavior and not submit to toxic leaders who may resort to lying and abusing their power over their subordinates. “We want people to be authentic,” Edmonds said. The mass and lecture caught the attention of local leaders. State Sen. Anna Kaplan (D-Great Neck), East Williston Mayor Bonnie Parente, and North Hempstead Councilman Peter Zuckerman attended. Tillery said that the “engaged faith” initiative will involve church hosting more “thought leaders” to discuss timely topics in the future. “We are a community church so we want everybody to feel warm and welcome here,” he said. The Community Church of East Williston is located at East Williston Avenue.

Opinion

OUR VIEWS

Aiming straight on gun safety laws

T

hey’re back. The Friends of the NRA recently announced plans for a second fundraiser in two years at the Inn at New Hyde Park catering facility in New Hyde Park. According to a flyer from the group, the event, scheduled to be held on Sept. 19, is meant to celebrate a “legacy” of shooting sports traditions and will feature dinner, raffles and auctions, with attendees given chances to win guns, gear, decor and collectibles. The event as can be expected – and for good reason – has drawn criticism from anti-gun groups and elected officials. Just as it did last year. We noted last year that the National Rifle Association, once a sportsman trade association, has morphed into a tool of gun manufacturers to promote industry profits no matter the carnage left in its wake. What we didn’t know then is how the organization’s leadership and a small group of lobbyists had also turned the NRA into a source of personal enrichment with outlandish salaries and perks. A series of internal National Rifle Association documents leaked online recently detailed lavish six-figure spending on clothing and travel expenses by CEO Wayne LaPierre. For which, we say good. The more money LaPierre spends on lavish suits the less money he has to oppose commonsense gun safety legislation to address national rates of gun-related homicides, suicides and accidental deaths unknown in the rest of the Western world. Not to mention the

nearly daily mass shootings that have terrified the nation. This raises the obvious question of why Friends of the NRA – knowing all this while the carnage in this country increased – continue to raise funds for this organization? But we will let them answer that question. State Sen. Anna Kaplan had it right when she criticized the Friends of the NRA for holding this year’s event. “While reasonable people across this country are looking for common-sense solutions to reduce the number of guns on our streets, the Nassau County Friends of the NRA plan on giving them away at their upcoming fundraiser in New Hyde Park,” Kaplan said. Unlike last year, however, when she was running for the state Senate, Kaplan did not cast blame on the Inn at New Hyde Park for renting Friends of the NRA the space for the event. That honor went to state Sen. Jim Gaughran (D-Northport), who made this year’s event public in a letter addressed to Frank Marino, owner of the Inn of New Hyde Park, that he tweeted on Aug. 22. “Last year I stood with activists to ask The Inn at New Hyde Park to reconsider hosting the [National Rifle Association] annual fundraiser. We were told it was too late for them to cancel the event,” Gaughran said. “What I can’t understand then, is why The Inn is hosting them again this year.” Well, to start senator, the Inn at New Hyde Park is a local business that makes money by renting space for people and organizations who want to hold events. It’s called free enterprise.

Editorial Cartoon

Let’s set aside the point that we already have one well-known public official in this country who regularly targets businesses that disagree with him. Do we really want people who run businesses to screen their customers based on their political views? Like the baker in Colorado who doesn’t want to serve gay people. Or hotel owners in the South who would not serve blacks in the past? And why stop there? The real reason we don’t have common-sense gun safety legislation such as universal background checks supported by more than 90 percent of the American people is not the Friends of the NRA or the Inn at New Hyde Park. It is Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and President Donald Trump, also a Republican. Should the Inn at New Hyde Park or any other business not do business with the Republican Party or its friends?

REPORTERS Jessica Parks, Tom McCarthy Rose Weldon, Robert Pelaez

Walmart’s announcement followed the shooting that killed 22 people at its store in El Paso last month, and it sparked similaractionsby Kroger, CVS, Walgreens and the Wegmans grocery chain. To her credit, Kaplan recently co-sponsored legislation signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo that requires out-of-state firearm buyers to submit to mental health background checks. The legislation further strengthens New York State gun safety laws that are arguably the toughest in the country. Kaplan also said she intended to use her First Amendment right to join others in a protest of the NRA event – rather than try to prevent the misbegotten supporters of the NRA from exercising their First Amendment rights. That is a far better approach than the one implied by Gaughran. But it still falls far short of what really needs to be done – change who is in charge in Washington.

Gaughran seems to say so in his letter when he says the country is “in the midst of a gun violence epidemic” and that organizations like the NRA are ignoring “pain, suffering and loss” caused by gun violence. Sounds like the U.S. Senate to us. Say, senator, know anyone, perhaps an elected official, who might do something constructive about this failure? Other than picking on a local business owner trying to make a living? Just remember that the only real progress in gun safety recently came when Walmart, a private business, announced the store would stop selling ammunition for military-style assault rifles and handguns, phase out the sale of handguns entirely and request that customers not openly carry weapons in its stores, even in states where it’s legal. The company also called on the government to tighten gun regulations.

ON THE RIGHT

Defining education standards down

I

n 1993, U.S. Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan penned an essay for The American Scholar titled “Defining Deviancy Down.” In that piece, Moynihan proffered the thesis “that over the past generation … the amount of deviant behavior in American society has increased beyond the levels the community can ‘afford to recognize’ and accordingly, we have been re-defining deviancy so as to exempt much conduct previously stigmatized.” Addressing the poor, Moynihan pointed out that social welfare professionals had much to gain financially by re-defining deviance. That’s because “a growth in deviance makes possible a transfer of resources, including prestige to those who control deviant population. This control would be jeopardized if any serious effort were made to reduce the deviancy in question. This leads to assorted strategies for redefining the behavior in question as not all that deviant, really.”

Failing public schools were not exempt from Moynihan’s scathing critique. “There is good money to be made,” he noted, “out of bad schools.” To appreciate Moynihan’s thesis, one need only look to New York City’s deplorable public school system. The city spends more per student annually, approximately $25,000 than any other school district in America. (The national average spent per pupil is $10,000.) Yet, despite all these expended tax dollars, the results have been dreadful. A National Assessment of Education Progress study released in 2018 revealed that in 2017 “72% of eight graders were not proficient in reading and 72% were not proficient in math.” In 2019, the overall proficiency of public school students’ grades 3 through 8, were 46.7 percent in English and 42.7 percent in math. (Compare that to the City’s 45 Success Academy Charter Schools whose student

GEORGE J. MARLIN On The Right body is 94 percent black and Hispanic: 90 percent proficient in English and 99 percent proficient in math.) But instead of admitting that City schools are failing and introducing proven programs that encourage and teach students to excel and improve outcomes, the Board of Education is attempting to define standards further downward. The first assault was on the

nine specialized high schools that require interested students to take a qualifying exam (i.e., Brooklyn Technical School, Bronx School of Science). Insisting that not enough minorities are accepted to these “elitist” schools—even though only 25 percent of the student population is white — Mayor de Blasio and his school chancellor, Richard Carranza, wanted to abolish the test and dumb down entrance requirements. Fortunately, the governor and the state Legislature had a say in the matter and it was quietly Dk’d. That setback, however, has not stopped the mayor and his minions from pursuing policies that will further hinder all students, regardless of their race or ethnicity. In late August, de Blasio’s handpicked School Diversity Advisory Group recommended that the Board of Education eliminate its “Gifted and Talented” programs and other academic

screening criteria for elementary and middle schools. The Advisory Group’s reasoning: the admission tests are “exclusionary” because only 18% of Blacks and Hispanics participate in the gifted programs. In other words, rewarding hard work and talent is somehow “racist.” Hence, judging students based on good grades, test scores, auditions and attendance, should be abolished. Fortunately, not everyone in public life is happy with the report. On Sept. 4, City Councilman Robert Cornegy, an African-American, read on the steps of City Hall, a letter he co-signed with 13 other elected officials opposing the recommended admission changes: “Rather than seeing the program as unjust, or an impediment to diversity in our schools,” he said, “we see the programs as a catalyst for helping children succeed, particularly students of color.” Continued on Page 80

A LOOK ON THE LIGHTER SIDE

Discussing things usually unseen

S

o it’s come to this: my own phone has started to send me threatening messages. They feel like notes from a hostage-taker, really — except the hostage they have taken is me! “You are almost out of data,” my phone tells me. “You have 10% remaining with 0 days left.” I don’t even see what the problem is, here. It sounds like I’ve cut it just about right, with one gallon of gas left in the tank when I pull in to this month’s finish line. So I don’t even understand why it’s complaining. Worse — any competent hostage-taker’s note will tell you what you’re supposed to do for them. Not so, with these. “Get unlimited data on America’s best network, Verizon,” it goes on. So I should switch to Verizon? But wait, I’m on Verizon already! It makes no sense! I bow my head, accepting this harassment as one more indignity, a confounding part of life in this new electronic wilderness that there seems to be no way of avoiding. Then, one day, one of my

sons was visiting when one of these messages came in. “See?” I cried, waving the offending thing in his face. “This is the kind of abuse I get!” “Mom, I get them too! We all do!” “Why ever would they bother you?” I wanted to know. “Maybe because we’re all on the same plan?” I was dumbstruck. “You mean, it might be the result of something you’re doing? Or your brother? And not about me at all?” Exasperated, he said, “Oh, mom. You’re hopeless.” But on the contrary — that conversation finally brought me a sliver of hope! Because up until that moment, I had assumed it was just one more baffling aspect of having to live with things invisible. I have dealt with plenty of invisible things in my life — germs; cooties; zoning regulations. But I prefer when there is some way, eventually, to make visible what you are talking about. I’m thinking of how the invisible ink on a piece of paper fi-

JUDY EPSTEIN

A Look on the Lighter Side nally shows up when you warm it over a candle… until it catches fire and you have to drop the whole mess into the sink. Or the way they taught us about magnetism when I was a kid. The teacher hands you a bar magnet, with ends marked North and South, then gives you another, also marked North and South — and the North and South ends glom together, whereas North and North push each other apart. The teacher says this is because of an invisible force called magnetism. Your entire class in-

sists, “No! It’s just cooties!” But then… the teacher puts a stiff piece of paper over a magnet and shakes a bunch of small dark particles onto it. They are iron filings, she tells you, and they clump up to show the bands of a magnetic field. “Cool!” you all say. And this is, ultimately, why you believe in magnetism. At least, it’s why I do. But there’s no similar such thing for “Data,” whatever that may be. There isn’t even any way to predict where you’ll have decent phone reception. Most of the time, it is a complete mystery to me why my phone works in some locations, but not others. The closest I have ever come to understand it was in a hospital, of all places, while visiting a friend. Hospitals are notoriously un-fond of cell phones. I think they’ve turned most areas into dead zones just because they’re tired of telling us to turn the darned things off. But when I was walking around the corridors with my friend, keeping her mind off her

new knees with my gift of nonstop chatter, we would sometimes turn a corner and come upon a clump of doctors, all hunched desperately over their phones. “The phones — they’re working here!” my friend yelped. I pulled mine out and sure enough, she was right. But there was no other way to know where this might happen, except by bumping into one of those clumps. “I’ve got it!” I shouted to my friend. “These people are the iron filings!” Of course, everyone looked at me a little funny — including my friend, who really should have known what I was like by then — but I’ll make allowances because she was in pain. So now I “get” that there is such a thing as cell service, whether it’s visible or not. But this data thing? It’s an invisible bridge too far. I’ll just have to continue shaking my fist and ignoring the hostage messages until my service clogs up and stops working altogether. “Damn Data!” I’ll say. “We just never got along.”

OUT OF LEFT FIELD

History’s heroes – and the winners are

I

magine that you are taking a seat on the first day of classes at Hofstra. For the past 50 years, I have begun each first class with a warm-up exercise. Before I distribute a syllabus or talk about the course, I tell students we are going to have an anonymous brainstorming activity. Not requiring a name is intended to eliminate potential first-day jitters. Each student is given a blank sheet of paper. I indicate that this may be the only time during the term when I will not take questions because the instructions are brief and students can make any interpretations that they wish. The five-minute exercise proceeds from my words: “Please make a list of up to 10 people whom you consider to be the greatest Americans who have ever lived.” On occasions when I have team-teaching professors, some have said: “Aren’t you going to tell them not to include family members on the list?” and “Will you indicate that the greatest can be selected from any field of endeavor?” To those queries, my responses have been “No,” and “No.” My intent over these past five decades has been to keep the first exercise as pure as possible with

views that are most likely to be on the minds of students without any prompts whatsoever. Every year, I tabulate how many votes are received by each person on lists, and I chart how many “heroes” (and heroines?) appear on each list (there could be as many as 10). This semester’s endeavor was specially spurred by conversations with former Long Islander, attorney Bill Wachtel (discussed in my Aug. 30 column; Bill’s father, Harry, was a key adviser to Dr. King, and Bill has worked to advance their commitments by re-establishing The Drum Major Institute, originally founded in the 1960s). Among the many questions that Bill raised about Gen Z students at Hofstra (and throughout the nation): “Who are their heroes?” His view, which I share, is that selection of heroes says a lot about one’s personal values, one’s aspirations, and how one regards our nation. A key feature, following this opening survey, is the second class when the ratings lists are distributed and discussions ensue about why people were chosen. The concomitant considerations are to take account of who is missing, whether whole

MICHAEL D’INNOCENZO Out of Left Field categories of heroes have been neglected (a likely outcome when I choose not to remind students that heroes can be selected from any field). Like many Americans, I have long been intrigued by polls of all kinds; the forming of rating lists calls out for “whys?” and justifications across eras. (My own interests were deeply advanced by two of Newsday’s all-time great journalists who often highlighted and analyzed polls: Bernie Bookbinder and Stan Isaacs.) How one asks questions about noteworthy people is vitally important. Some surveys focus on “influential” people; the individuals who get listed are considered significant, but some might be influential in negative

or horrific ways. You may recall that when Time Magazine announced that it would choose the person of the entire 20th Century, many people were concerned that Hitler might be selected because of his vast but horrible effects on those years. (Time’s selection turned out to be Einstein) My deliberate selection of the word “greatest” is intended to prompt positive nominees, which has been the case. Part of the discussion in our second class compares the effects of “influential” and “greatest” in making ratings, and, especially, seeks reasons why heroes were named. This year’s opening class prompts from Bill Wachtel led me to follow his language, and I discovered that The National Endowment for the Humanities launched a special lecture series in 2003 called “Heroes of History.” I met my first class of this semester (starting my 60th year at Hofstra) on September 4 and had the students respond to the “greatest” query posed above. When I tabulated the students’ responses, the top three were: 1) Martin Luther King Jr.; 2) Abraham Lincoln; 3) a tie for John F. Kennedy and Rosa Parks.

Those selections (except for Parks) exactly matched the 50year surveys that I have done. King and Lincoln have each come in first with different classes, but, overall, King topped the list more semesters. The only other person to be listed first on some occasions was Washington (who was fourth on the fifty-year list). Rosa Parks seldom was in the top ten in earlier years. It is striking that John F. Kennedy continues to receive such high ratings, particularly when younger students have no direct memories of him. Even more dramatic is the poll leader, Martin Luther King Jr., when 90 percent or more of the students have been white folks (though, in recent decades, Hofstra has become very diverse). Years ago, during the discussion of the ratings, a few students asked me if I knew the song “Abraham, Martin, and John.” I had never heard of it, but it certainly resonated, given the top three folks whom students had selected as “the greatest Americans of all time,” all, tragically, cut down in the prime of their lives. In my next column, I will report on the discussions of this year’s ratings and how my new students assess their own listings with those of past decades.

E A R T H M AT T E R S

We strike for environmental protection A global youth inspired climate justice movement has gathered great momentum lately, culminating with Swedish Greta Thunberg arriving in New York to raise awareness about the need for action in response to climate change. Determined, she planned her trip so that she’d leave the least Carbon footprint en route by sailing across the Atlantic instead of flying. Greta rose to fame for starting Friday school strikes outside the Swedish parliament, insisting her elected officials start treating the climate crisis as if their house were on fire. Her call for action isn’t too hard to grasp, with world forests from Alaska to Brazil burning this summer at rates faster than ever before. Her determination birthed the Fridays for Future movement. On Friday, Aug. 30, I took the train into New York City to accompany

my daughter and her friend to sit with Greta and youth activists outside the United Nations. Greta didn’t seem interested in being considered the star of this gathering but rather showed up as one of many, an active participant standing shoulder to shoulder with others to insist on change. She empowered the voices of local, inspiring youth leaders, including Xiye Bastida, who spoke with fierce determination stating: “We can not live in a world that is burning, that is melting.” Together, youth are calling for a change in existing power structures in order to deal with climate change. At the end of this climate demonstration, I was engaged in conversation with a 350.org PR person (wearing a t-shirt #exxonknew) only to be interrupted by my Long Island girl tugging on my shirt sleeve begging me to visit the American Girl store. I assured her

HILDUR PALSDOTTIR Earth Matters

we don’t need another doll, one is enough. Next time you shop, ask yourself, do I really need more of this? Every purchase leaves a carbon footprint. As a middle-class suburban mom I do my best to limit impulse buys, encourage my kids to only get what we need, we drive a hybrid, we compost, and our home

is solar-powered. We donate monthly to reforesting the tropics and spend most of our free time volunteering with Rewild Long Island to restore natural habitats in suburban landscapes. Yet, as individuals, there is only so much we can do. With leaders such as Brazil’s Bolsonaro weakening indigenous rights and protections for the environment in order to free up more land for cattle, soy, and other commodities, and Trump’s rollback on regulations on methane gas emissions, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by nonsense. Thankfully, youth are rising and ready to speak sense to nonsense. I attend climate strikes, rallies and marches with the aim to contribute to the collective shift in cultural consciousness. It feels encouraging to be surrounded by those who are like-minded and there is strength in numbers.

If you’re still reading, then you probably care as well, and I want you to know there are many of us. Join us at noon on Friday, Sept. 20 at Foley Square, 1 Federal Plaza in New York City for a Global Climate Strike. Youth are begging for us to “act on the science,” to “give us back our future.” We need to demand change from fossil fueldriven economy to renewables, Now! We must demand real leadership and accountability from our elected officials as we move from an extractive economy towards a regenerative economy. Scientists warn that we have just a few years to transform our economy. To implement the large scale changes necessary, we need elected officials to take their hands out of the pockets of oil and gas billionaires and change the course of action. Continued on Page 71

VIEW POINT

Trump’s trade war hurting travel revenue

O

n a bike tour through South Dakota’s Badlands and Black Hills through repurposed rail trails and mining towns, among the delightful people who hailed from Vermont, Missouri, Colorado, Maryland and Illinois, was a fellow who described himself as a libertarian who quoted Mark Twain, who, I was reminded, was a travel writer: “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime,” Twain wrote in “The Innocents Abroad.” Among Trump’s destructive policies – to the environment, to the planet, to the economy, to world peace and prosperity – has been all that he has done to undermine international travel, starting with his unconstitutional and racist Muslim Travel Ban and his malicious reinstatement of travel restrictions to Cuba. But it is more than world peace and the progress of civilization – it is the precious economy (and his 2020 election) which Trump has put at risk. Indeed, travel and tourism, which generated $2.5 trillion for the U.S. economy in 2018, supporting 15.7 million American jobs, is the canary-in-the-goldmine of economic indicators. Lost in the appropriate hysteria over the tariffs and trade wars

and the adverse impacts on farmers and global recession, is the fact that international travel has traditionally produced a positive trade balance helping reduce the trade deficit. International tourism is up everywhere but to the United States. The Washington Post cited figures from the World Tourism Organization, a United Nations agency, showing the number of international tourist arrivals around the world reached 1.4 billion last year, a 6 percent increase, with a further 3 to 4 percent increase forecast for this year. But in the first half of 2019, the number of international visitors coming to America has actually dropped 1.7 percent, according to the Commerce Department’s National Travel and Tourism Office. (https://travel.trade.gov/ view/m-2017-I-001/index.asp) A big reason for that is a significant drop in Chinese visitors. “A new battlefront has opened in the trade war between the United States and China: the $1.6 trillion American travel industry,” the New York Times reported. “A Los Angeles hotel long popular with Chinese travelers saw a 23 percent decline in visits last year and another 10 percent so far this year… And in San Francisco, busloads of Chinese tourists were once a mainstay of one fine jewelry business; over the last few years, the buses stopped coming.” In New York City, where Chi-

KAREN RUBIN View Point

na is the second-largest source of foreign visitors and Chinese tourists spend nearly twice as much as other foreign visitors, the number of Chinese tourists fell 12 percent in the first quarter. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which largely depends on foreign tourists to pay its bills, has seen the share of its 7 million visitors a year coming from abroad falling from 34 percent to 28 percent. “Trade wars with China could cost the country 1.9 million inbound visitors and $11 billion in spending between 2018 and 2020, according to Tourism Economics, part of Oxford Economics. Through July, travel from China is down 3.7 percent compared with last year, according to Commerce Department figures. That’s on top of a drop last year, the report says,” the Washington Post reported. U.S. global long-haul travel

market share is on a four-year slide since its previous high of 13.7 percent in 2015 – a tribute to all the Obama Administration did to ease access and promote visiting the USA – falling to 11.7 percent in 2018. The decline in market share represents losses to the US economy of 14 million international visitors, $59 billion in international traveler spending, and 120,000 U.S. jobs. But the market-share drop is now forecast by the US Travel Association to continue, dipping under 11 percent by 2022. That would mean an economic hit of 41 million visitors, $180 billion in international traveler spending and 266,000 jobs. Trump’s trade war with China is one big reason for the drop in foreign travel receipts, but Trump’s policies, his bullying of allies like England, France and Germany which are traditionally key generators of travelers to the US, his Muslim Travel Ban, anti-immigrant policies and rhetoric degrading foreigners, his America First policies pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement and the Iran Nuclear Pact have turned off many from visiting. Foreigners don’t feel welcome and/or want to show their opposition to Trump. Another reason is rampant gun violence. Foreigners do not feel safe. After the most recent spate of mass shootings in at the Garlic Festival in California, in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso and Odessa, Texas,

more countries – Japan, Venezuela and Uruguay – joined Germany, Ireland, Canada and New Zealand in issuing travel warnings against visiting the United States. China warned its citizens about traveling to the United States in June, naming gun violence, robberies and theft as risks, the Washington Post reported. Uruguay, warned of the “the indiscriminate possession of firearms by the population” and told travelers to avoid taking children to crowded places like theme parks and sporting events. New Zealand’s travel advisory warns “Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places frequented by foreigners…A number of politically motivated attacks have occurred in recent years, causing multiple deaths and injuries.” This is Trump’s Brand USA. “Most Americans believe the U.S. should be the world leader in everything—and with all the incredible things you can see and do in every corner of this country, that is especially true of international tourism,” said Tori Barnes, executive vice president for public affairs and policy at the U.S. Travel Association, a trade group. “But reclaiming our market share is not just a matter of pride—it is economically vital, and can help sustain our GDP expansion when we’re seeing some other headwinds on the horizon. Recapturing our market share should, by all rights, be a national priority.”

Don’t let politics steer how kids are taught

I

know that you’ve only been with our Port Washington School District a very short time and that it would be very unfair of anyone to ask you to speak up, soon, about a complex educational issue that’s already impacting our school district. However, I believe that the issue is of such overriding importance, that I feel compelled to ask you to speak up about it as soon as you can. The educational issue is the educational philosophy, “educating the whole child” (“EWC”). I’ve read that you’re already an expert on that philosophy, so speaking up about it soon to our Port Washington community shouldn’t be a problem for you. But first, let me tell you who I am. My name is Joel Katz. My wife and I are oldsters, now in our 80s and we’re both in poor health. We’ve lived here in Port Washington, in the same small house, for

almost 53 years now. Both of our children attended school in Port, K-12, and both graduated from Schreiber High Schoo in the late 1970s. I am not the co-president of any PTA, HSA, Parent’s Council, SEPTA, AGATE, Ed Foundation or any other adult group associated with our school district. In fact, I’m not even a member of any of the organizations just mentioned. I am, however, a resident of the Port Washington School District and as such, like thousands of other Port residents, I’m greatly concerned about the successes and the failures of our school district. I think that it was about 13 or 14 years ago that your predecessor, Dr. Kathleen Mooney, first announced at a school board meeting that the Port Washington School District had adopted the educational philosophy, “educating the whole child”.

If, along with her announcement, Dr. Mooney gave any sort of an explanation about what EWC meant and involved, it was minimal. She never explained, either, exactly how, exactly when and exactly why, EWC had been adopted and what it replaced. From time to time, over the years, until her recent departure from our school district, Dr. Mooney would mention that EWC was being applied here, but always, without any explanation about what EWC involved. Of course, over the years, since none of our school board members were educators, none of them could offer any explanation to our community about what EWC meant and involved. I’ve gone onto the internet and have read much about EWC that’s been posted there. I was surprised to read that the beginnings of EWC go back to the late 1940s

and early 1950s, but that EWC wasn’t actually formalized until I believe, about 2002. I understand why the “No Child Left Behind” initiative failed and why EWC was intended to replace it. I read that EWC advocates that if a child’s family, or community, or church, fails to provide the child with the opportunity to learn from schooling, then the school will replace the family, the community or the church. However, I still haven’t been able to find anything on the internet that explains just how and when the school can become the replacement. I also read that EWC strongly advocates for certain agendas that sound more, to me, like political agendas, than educational philosophy. The agendas I refer to are open national borders, or no national borders at all, multiculturalism, cultural diversity and sexual

diversity, of the LGBT & Q kind. To me, those agendas sound more like the political agenda of the Democratic Socialist Party, than any educational philosophy advocated by our state Department of Education. Of course, I could be wrong about that and I anxiously await your talk about EWC, to learn more. I’m sure that the entire Port Washington community is also anxious to hear you speak about “educating the whole child” and also, what must still be done in our school district to fully implement that educational philosophy. Thank you for your efforts and I certainly wish you all success, as you move forward here, in Port Washington. Joel Katz Port Washington

How to soften loss of SALT deduction

W

ith no legislative resolution to the curtailment of the SALT deduction in sight, it’s time to look at some other measures we can take to ameliorate the tax bite. At a limit of only $10,000, even those with modest homes and incomes are affected on Long Island. This is an opportunity to address some structural imbalances that have been allowed to fester thanks to our comatose elected “representatives.” Most residents don’t realize it, but a part of our property taxes go to fund a portion of teacher pensions. In today’s economy, this is an anachronism. It’s also massively hypocritical of “pro-labor” NYSUT types to have the impoverished among us

fund the pensions of superintendents who will cash out with over $300,000 per year. In order to reduce the burden property taxes put on the cost of something on so basic a need as shelter, this contribution should be eliminated altogether. Some districts will save more than others. But based on a list of taxpayer contributions from NYSTRS for the 2018-19 school year, it is dismaying to see some districts that are starved for resources kicking up millions of dollars to one of the 142 superintendents we employ on Long Island, which is, of course, deliberate redundancy. Wyandanch, which has been reduced to begging for private contributions to keep certain programs in place, pays $2,953,000

to fund the pensions of the already well off. The Freeport school district pays $7.4 million. Sewanhaka, $9.2 million. From every aspect, this is a moral abomination that should not be allowed to continue for one minute more. I realize that is a heavy lift politically, given the legendary fecklessness and cowardice of our elected representatives, but perhaps someone will try. Interestingly, NYSTRS flat out refuses to classify the property tax-funded portion of the pensions they administer as coming from “taxpayers.” The term of choice is “employer contribution.” Another quick fix is redirecting library funding. Long Island is rightly proud of its library sys-

tem, and it is money well spent, especially in an age where so many minds have been rotted by electronic media. A visit to any one of them shows people do get value out of them. However, placing the revenue stream to pay for them on a basic need like a home is not productive. While the County is swimming in debt, thanks to the cynical manipulation of its property tax system and its reckless bonding to fund property tax refunds, debt can be used for productive purposes. With the 30 year Treasury yielding under 2.00 percent, and in the midst of a scorching hot municipal bond market that can’t keep up with demand, now would be the time to float a single issue bond that would cover

library expenses for the next 30 years. Once funded, this line item could be removed from the property tax, and the proceeds dedicated for the use of ongoing library operations for decades to come, at what amounts to the free use of money. There are perhaps a dozen way to reduce property tax burdens by shifting the revenue stream mix in different combinations in order to soften the blow of the loss of the SALT deduction. Rest assured your county, Senate and Assembly officials will continue their visits to the Boy Scouts and VFW halls, and “inspect” raw sewage facilities instead. Donald Davret Roslyn

Transparence needed on Herricks talks

W

e are residents and taxpayers of the Town of North Hempstead and proudly have children who attend the Herricks Union Free School District. During the past year, we remained on the sidelines observing from afar the back/forth between the Herricks Teacher’s Association and HUFSD. We stayed neutral, trying to understand both perspectives, at least based on available and/or reliable information. It is now 15 months since the

Contract expired; another school year and the Herricks Teachers remain without a contract. Our curiosity has now become a serious concern with the HUFSD’s ability to secure a contract for our invaluable teachers. Admittedly, we likely know less about the negotiation process as the terms remain under the radar and questions are met with the “standard” response of the inability to discuss on-going negotiations. We feel a sense of pride when

HUFSD publishes our academic/school standing among districts, albeit with significant reservations as these rating systems are not based on rigor or empirically validated data. Nevertheless, the families of the HUFSD know that the mortar of our children’s academic success remain the front-line teachers, teaching assistants, psychologists/social workers and staff at each respective school. They spend six, seven and eight hours with our children on

a daily basis for approximately 10 months. These dedicated and talented professionals, along with the devoted parents, make up the team that create the foundation for future success. It is inevitable that the absence of a contract will lead to decreased morale and perception of not being appreciated which will then trickle down to the students. It is a fact of human behavior that when one perceives being devalued and/or unappreciated, this translates to

altered work performance. This is undeniable across professions. We can no longer simply sit idly by, remaining silent hoping that our Herricks Teachers receive a contract. We must hold our Board of Education and district accountable, demand transparency and be part of the negotiation process rather than allowing yet more time to expire while being reassured of our place in an academic rating system.

We must not forget 9/11 NICE shuttle a plus

I

’m greatly troubled by the belief of some who think we must move on, that there is too much talk of 9/11 many years later. We have lost thousands of good people including 343 Firefighters who gave their lives to save the many. Not to mention the many first responders who have died and many who are dying from the effects of the at-

tacks and many more will suffer and die in the future. A husband lost his wife, a father lost his son, a mother lost her daughter and friends lost friends. How does one forget? Future generations need to know what happens on that day of evil, for when we disregard history, we are doomed to repeat it. May God bless America on another anniversary of 9/11

and mourn all the good people who have died and taken from our midst. Let’s keep the memory alive all year long so we don’t forget their sacrifice. Remember this too: Evil thrives when good people do nothing! Frederick R. Bedell Jr. Mineola

I

was excited to learn that a NICE shuttle bus was being offered from Soundview, to and from the LIRR station, for commuters and have been riding it since late May when the program began. The shuttle is comfortable and pleasant to ride, and it brings such peace-of-mind not to worry about finding parking near the train. It also allows me to leave an extra car at home for my family to use during the day for their activities. Thanks so much to Leg-

islator DeRiggi-Whitton for working so hard to get the shuttle up and running along West Shore Road, then its expansion from Port Washington North and the Port LIRR Station. I hope the shuttle becomes permanent and that more lines are added for commuters who live in other areas of Port Washington. Liz Schmidt, Port Washington North Letters Continued on Page 70

1st gender confirmation surgery on L.I. Operation performed at North Shore Hospital in Manhasset by noted plastic surgeon BY R O S E W E L D ON Long Island’s first genital gender confirmation surgery was performed at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, Northwell Health announced last week. The procedure was performed by plastic surgeon Dr. David Whitehead, who conferred with a team of colorectal, urological and gynecological surgeons beforehand. “I do most of the procedure myself, but I make sure that the team is available if there is an issue,” Whitehead said. The surgery was a form of vaginoplasty, using existing male genitals and tissue to craft the look of a woman’s genitals between the prostate and the rectum. A pelvic floor physical therapy team then works with the patient before and after the operation, and the patient recuperates in the hospital for one week. Dr. David Rosenthal, medical director of Northwell Health’s Center for Transgender Care, which is based out of North Shore, said the first procedure was performed in “spring of 2019.” He added that Whitehead was chosen due to his “high level of experience” with the procedures.

Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Ill., where he learned the procedure and performed it dozens of times. In addition to the vaginoplasty, other surgeries that the center has made available to transgender women in the sys-

tem include facial feminization, tracheal shave (which reduces a patient’s Adam’s apple), vocal surgery, breast augmentation and orchiectomy. For transgender men, chest masculinization and hysterectomies are available. Metoidioplasty and phalloplasty, operations used to create male genitalia for transgender men, are currently in development, says Whitehead, who estimates that a procedure may be ready “as early as next year.” “It’s a question of reaching my standards of care for how to offer gender affirmation treatment,” Whitehead said. “We don’t want to rush something so important.” Rosenthal, one of the founders of the Center for Transgender Care, says that the surgeries are just a part of the care that the Center offers for transgender individuals. “Northwell is committed to the transgender, gender-nonconforming and nonbinary community,” Rosenthal said. “Patients have diverse needs, and our goal is to provide for these needs and give the best that they can attain. From surgery to mental health care to primary care, we want to care for them as well as we care for any patient in the system.”

Cuomo signs Kaplan domestic violence bill BY R O S E W E L D ON A bill sponsored by state Sen. Anna Kaplan (D-Great Neck), which extends the statute of limitations for civil suits over domestic violence, was signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo last week. Before the legislation, civil suits on domestic violence had to be initiated within one year of the incident. “For many survivors of domestic violence, the decision to file a civil suit against their abuser is a complicated one that can take a lot of time to consider,” Kaplan said in a statement released by her office. The new law extends the statute of limitations to two years after the incident. It passed with 59 votes in the state Senate. Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul added in the statement that the legislation “continues to build on our efforts to protect and support victims of domestic violence.” “We want to make sure individuals have the time and resources they need to hold their abusers accountable and help with recovery,” Hochul said. “New York continues to lead the way to protect the most vulnerable, eliminate injustice and strengthen our society.”

State Sen. Anna Kaplan’s bill on extending the statute of limitations for domestic violence civil suits was signed into law by Gov. Cuomo on Sept. 4. Nationwide, nearly 1 in 5 women and about 1 in 7 men report having experienced severe physical violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

in August. One bill requires the county to release data and formulas that are used to determine the fair market value of Nassau homes. The second measure mandates the county to notify taxpayers of their tentative assessment by mail in addition to email. In a memo from the county executive’s office, Curran said she signed the laws because she shares the Legislature’s goals of “ensuring transparency in assessment” and agrees that taxpayers who submit applications to the Assessment Review Commission should receive mailed offers unless they have opted out. Under the first law, the county must share the formula used by the county’s modeling software, which was created by a Colorado-based company, with the public. Initially, the county contended the formula was a “trade secret” and therefore was not subject to Freedom of Information Law requests. But eventually, the county elected to release the algorithm in the wake of the state Committee on Open Government’s advisory opinion suggesting that it do so due to the formula’s use in making important government decisions.

LETTUCE BRINGS MODERN FUNK BY B I L LY F I T Z PAT R I C K

M

odern funk is coming to Westbury on Saturday, Sept. 21, when the band Lettuce pays a visit to The Space. While Lettuce is considered a funk band, guitarist Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff says the band’s music will also include hip hop elements and will attempt to break genres. “We try to become genreless at points,” said Smirnoff. “You can expect improvisations, mostly instrumental, but we do have a vocalist (Nigel Hall) who is absolutely incredible and will do a couple vocal tunes as well.” Playing on Long Island is a homecoming of sorts for Smirnoff, who lives in Denver but is from the Westchester area. “Long Island and New Jersey – we’re playing Asbury Park the night before – both of those, for me, are special,” said Smirnoff. “I have family in both New Jersey and New York so that weekend will be the homecoming weekend. I’ll have some family coming out to the shows when we’re out there.” The Boston-originated band has been touring since the end of August for its newest album, “Elevate.” The band’s sixth

studio album was released on June 14. “It’s been a long process for this record as far as when the idea starts forming, when we started forming the music and when we finally got in the studio,” said Smirnoff. “This has been a couple of years in the making but there’s a lot more than meets the eye and I think sooner than later there will be a couple more releases before you know it.” The band celebrated the release of “Elevate” by performing at the

fourth annual Rage Rocks at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, on June 15, just one day after the album’s release. The performance featured two full sets from Lettuce, one being a Jerry Garcia Band cover. “[Red Rocks] is definitely one of my favorite places in the entire world,” said Smirnoff. “You become one with the dinosaurs when you play at Red Rocks. It’s a bucket list destination. That and The Gorge, where we just opened up for Dave

Matthews Band, are some of the most beautiful places I’ve ever played at.” To those who will attend Lettuce’s Long Island appearance on Sept. 21, Smirnoff said: “I’ll see you out there, I’m looking forward to it, and I can’t wait to be back on the East Coast. If you get the chance to look up the album ‘Elevate,’ check it out and if you learn it, you’ll probably have a better time at the show.” “Elevate” can be found on all major streaming platforms or it can

be purchased through the band’s website, www.lettucefunk.com. For more information on the sixpiece modern funk band, you can check out the band’s bio on its website. Tickets to Lettuce’s show at The Space at Westbury can be purchased through TicketMaster or through the venue’s box office, which can be reached at 516-283-5566.

NHP hosting a ‘party in the park’ Street fair morphs into community day celebration as 3rd track construction continues BY TOM M CC A RT HY New Hyde Park Community Day, or what Mayor Lawrence Montreuil calls “party in the park,” is set for Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Memorial Park. While it replaces the traditional New Hyde Park Street Fair, organizer Janet Bevers said that the new event will be “in the same vein and tone.” Bevers said there is a common theme to the event: “It’s all community. It’s all local.” Bevers said that businesses and organizations in New Hyde Park will have tables throughout the day. She said that there will be 70 vendors and 20 service organizations. Northwell Health is the official sponsor of the event. The New Hyde Park Funeral Home and the Katie McBride Foundation are the musical sponsors. On the village board’s decision to cancel what would have been the 24th fair, Bevers said, “I think they made the right decision.” When the board voted in the spring to not have the fair because of the LIRR Expansion Project work going on in the area, it was because it was unclear when Covert Avenue would reopen and it would be “irresponsible” for the village to close Jericho Turnpike only two blocks away from LIRR

work being done on New Hyde Park Road, Bevers said. She said the village has always organized the fair with a lot of help from the Greater New Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce. As a consolation prize for breaking a two-decade tradition, Bevers said that the 3rd Track Constructors, the company hired

by the MTA for the LIRR Expansion Project, will be donating 1,000 cups of free gelato. The gelato will be distributed by local vendor Sweet Passions. Bevers said that for children there would three inflatable rides, two of which were donated by party planning and rental company Send in The Clowns. She said that setup for the fair will be

done with the help of local Boy Scout troops and the Fire Department. Bevers said that Montreuil is scheduled to speak at 11 a.m. followed by an 11:30 a.m. performance by Chenda Mela, a drum group originally from Bellerose. From noon to 3 p.m., local “classic party rock” band His Boy Elroy will perform on the main stage. According to the band’s Facebook page, the band has been together in “one form or another for almost 20 years.” Visitors can expect to hear an “eclectic musical mix of classic and contemporary hits” coming from the main stage, according to the band. Bevers said that the fair will also include a second stage that is more for “local performances.” Residents can expect to see a musical performance by the Holy Spirit Players starting at 12:45 p.m., a musical performance by the New Hyde Park Children’s Theatre starting at 2 p.m., and a performance by magician Magic of Amore. Walking around the park residents will be able to see “welcome banners” crafted by children in the village’s summer recreation programs. Bevers said having banners made by children in the community “emulates the theme of this event.”

Williston Day stays young at 41 New chamber leadership continues tradition of hosting a community day event BY TOM M CC A RT HY In September 1978, Williston Park and East Williston united to start “Old Fashioned Day,” a day in which the two communities could get together and let loose on Willis Avenue. Forty-one years later, the tradition is still alive and strong. The 41st annual Williston Day Street Fair will be this Sunday, uniting the Willistons once again. However, this year will see new leadership. This year’s fair will run along Hillside Avenue between Willis Avenue and the Long Island Rail Road station between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eileen Devaney, president of the S.E.E.D.S. of the Willistons and copresident of the Chamber of the Willistons, is now in charge of the operation of the fair. The event is put on every year by the chamber. “It’s a real community day,” Devaney said. “It’s really a great day for everyone to see each other.” She said that residents can expect to see many local businesses, as well as 200 outside vendors, selling an assortment of goods such as food, clothing and jewelry.

As usual, it will feature antique cars, a petting zoo, children’s rides, rock ‘n’ roll bands, pony rides and more. Devaney said that residents can expect to see a return of the children’s rides in the parking lot of the Bank of America on Hillside Avenue after an issue prevented them from being erected at last year’s street fair. Devaney said many local busi-

nesses and the chamber itself will have tables at the fair. DJ All Star Party LI will perform for the entire event. At 11 a.m. Herricks Middle School students will perform the national anthem to start the event. Starting at noon, the fair will see performances by the Hidden Talents Dance Center, followed by demonstrations by U.S. Taekwondo at 1 p.m. and Charleswa-

Taecole kids are safe kids

ter Karate & Fitness, a performance by students at the Hannah Kroner School of Dance and finally a demonstration by Martial Arts studio Taecole Taekwondo. “Every year, we host an annual street fair where businesses and groups in Williston Park and East Williston come out and celebrate all that is happening in our town,” the chamber said in a statement. “This is a highlight of the life of our city every year and the Chamber of Commerce is proud to help with this event.” This year is the first time that Lucille Waters, former executive director for the chamber, will not be helping run the street fair after a 15-year tenure. Waters said she will not be able to attend this year’s fair. What makes the street fair special, Waters said, is that it is organized by people in the community rather than outside organizations. Waters said that involved parties include local businesses, local Boy Scout troops, Williston Park and East Williston fire departments and the Williston Park Civic Association, along with the chamber. The rain date for the fair is Sept. 22.

The Who’s ‘Moving Screening of film on On’ at Jones Beach Nuremberg prosecutor THE Who are getting ready to embark on the second leg of their 29-date North American ‘Moving On’ Symphonic Tour where a local symphony orchestra will join The Who nightly with selections from ‘Tommy’ and ‘Quadrophenia’ along with greatest hits and some long-awaited new tunes. The tour is conducted by renowned composer and conductor, Keith Levenson, who has led major symphonies including The Boston Pops, The Chicago Symphony and The Cleveland Orchestra. But Levenson is known more in the rock world for conducting and creating arrangements for KISS, Meatloaf, Alice Cooper, Yes, and The British Rock Symphony which featured Peter Frampton, Paul Rodgers, Darlene Love and Nigel Kennedy, Roger Daltrey and Ann Wilson. Pete Townshend says of Keith, “He is our leader and musical director, the man who holds it all together.” ‘The Who’s TOMMY Orchestral’ album, was just released on the UMe label and the album debuted as Number One on Billboard’s Classical Charts. It was recorded in Budapest and Bethel Woods in upstate New York, the scene of the first Woodstock Festival 50 years ago, where ‘Tommy’ was

performed live. The album was produced by Roger Daltrey and Keith Levenson who conducted The Budapest Scoring Orchestra featuring new orchestrations by David Campbell. The first leg of the ‘Moving On’ Symphonic Tour’ played to sold-out audiences in venues like Madison Square Garden and The Hollywood Casino Amphitheater. And in July they played to a massive crowd at Wembley Stadium in London. The touring band includes Simon Townshend, Zak Starkey and violinist extraordinaire Katie Jacoby, whose searing solo on ‘Baba O’Riley’ is a highlight in concert. The Who and Levenson are receiving major national press including articles in Billboard and Rolling Stone. Roger Daltrey says, “I’ve worked with Keith Levenson since 1994 and he is very experienced in working with rock bands and Orchestras, he feels the same as I do, that you are working in a giant rock band!” Keith Levenson has also conducted the musicals ‘Annie’ with Nell Carter, ‘Grease’, ‘Best Little Whorehouse in Texas’ with Ann Margaret and the Grammy Award-winning musical ‘Dreamgirls’.

The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County will be screening the documentary, Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz, on, Sunday, Oct. 6, at 1 p.m. HMTC’s David Taub Reel Upstanders Film Series will present the screening, which will take place at HMTC, Welwyn Preserve, 100 Crescent Beach Road, Glen Cove. This gripping new documentary tells the fascinating story of Ben Ferencz —

the last surviving Nuremberg prosecutor and a lifelong advocate of “law not war.” After witnessing Nazi concentration camps shortly after liberation, Ferencz became lead prosecutor in the Einsatzgruppen case at Nuremberg, which has been called the biggest murder trial in history. He was 27 years old and it was his first trial. All 22 Nazi officials tried for murdering over a million people were Continued on Page 62

League seeks to educate on early voting New state law intended to boost turnout in Nassau County at 15 locations outside N. Hempstead BY R O S E W E L D ON

Registered voters in Nassau County have a new resource for information on November’s elections, courtesy of the League of Women Voters of Nassau County. The league has rolled out a website, www.nyearlyvoting. org, as a source for early voting in New York State. The website describes locations for early voting and answers frequently asked questions. Nassau County will have 15 sites for early voting from Oct. 26 to Nov. 3. The general election will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 5. The Town of North Hempstead will not have an early voting site. The closest site is the Nassau County Board of Elections on Old Country Road in Mineola, which is just outside the town. The early voting sites were determined by the commissioners of the Board of Elections, said Nancy Rosenthal, president of the league. “My guess is that they choose the areas that will be fa-

The Board of Elections is headed by Commissioner Louis G. Savinetti, a Republican, and acting Commissioner James P. Scheuerman, a Democrat. Bon-

WE OFFER HUNDREDS OF CLASSES FOR ADULTS!

nie Garone, counsel to the Democratic commissioner, said that a “complicated process” determined the locations. “We were primarily looking for areas that had lower turnout rates than others, since the point of early voting is to make voting more accessible,” Garone said.

“We also tried to take into account transportation availability and ease of access, in terms of driving or public transportation, and then we had to find places that would have us.” Garone added that the locations needed to have accessibility accommodations, a “suitably

sized room” for voting booths and good cellphone connectivity. “All of those things taken into account, that’s how we put together the list of places,” Garone said. Founded by women’s suffragists Emma Smith DeVoe and Carrie Chapman Catt in 1920, the League of Women Voters described itself in a news release as “a nonpartisan political membership organization open to men and women that encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.” The league’s Nassau chapter is one of 790 chapters in the United States, Hong Kong and the U.S. Virgin Islands. In addition to information on early voting, the League of Women Voters of Nassau County provides materials on voter registration, absentee ballots and the effects of redistricting.

BY J E S S I C A PA R K S Some $220,000 in underpayments to employees of county contractors was identified as a result of a 2018 living wage audit, according to a report by Nassau County Comptroller Jack Schnirman. The annual report, released last Thursday, reviews the enforcement and monitoring of the living wage law over the course of 2018. The Nassau County Living Wage Law, enacted in 2007, requires most county contractors to pay their employees a living wage, which is based on New York Metroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Consumer Price Index. On Aug. 1, the living wage was increased to $16.76 an hour, from $16.41, for employees who do not receive health benefits, and from $14.27 to $14.51 for employees who receive health benefits from their employer. Under the law, full-time employees are granted a minimum of 12 paid days oďŹ&#x20AC; each year, and part-time employees who work at least 20 hours per week receive proportionate paid days oďŹ&#x20AC;, according to the audit. The comptrollerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oďŹ&#x192;ce completed one audit of a county contractor over the course of 2018, All Metro Home Care Services of New York Inc., which was found to owe over $220,000 to 147 employees in uncompensated time-oďŹ&#x20AC; and underpayments.

A number of concerns have been raised by Republican politicians that the released algorithm was missing two lines that are crucial to calculating property values. The second bill is a return to the previous practices of the Assessment Review Commission, which used to mail offers to settle grievances and other important information, but this year decided that all communication with residents would be electronic, according to the county GOP. The package of measures, called the “Assessment Bill of Rights,” was formed based on concerns from residents at meetings and hearings across the county, Presiding Officer Richard Nicolello (R-New Hyde Park) said at a July news conference.

Other legislation proposed by county Republicans restricts home inspections conducted by the county Department of Assessment, limits the Nassau County executive’s ability to change the level of assessment without an amendment approved by the County Legislature, requires mailing new tax impact notices that display the homeowner’s property tax burden using the final assessed value and the proposed five-year phase-in, and tasks the county assessor with holding hearings in each town and city in the county. An additional bill to require the county assessor to reside in Nassau County is also included in the package. The current county assessor, David Moog, is a resident of New York City. The remaining changes will be heard by legislative committees this month.

Finally, somebody addresses gun violence

E

very time there is a mass shooting — and they are almost daily occurrences in America in 2019, especially we say: This one is it. This is the tipping point. This is the proverbial straw that will break the camel’s back. The powers-that-be that rule the White House and the Senate will finally hear the unmistakably almost unified national voice seeking background checks; and, they will finally — finally – to tackle the proliferation of masskill weaponry sold as de rigeur hunting guns at shows, stores and online. Oh yes, we say: this will finally happen. After all, what could be worse than Sandy Hook—the wholesale , cornered in their classrooms slaughter of innocent little children. It will surely happen in 2013, we thought. And the beat beats on and the band played on and on. The strategy has been to wait it out; wait until the passions and fires, the deep anger and distress, following each shooting fades. Just hunker down, the NRA and

its minions say; This Too Shall Pass. Just: hold firm. They do. They are right. It just: passes. And then the next one comes. Same thing. ” Thoughts and Prayers/ Thoughts and Prayers”…Right…. The latest interchange of early this week occurred when Republican Majority Leader McConnell said that he would move only at the president’s say-so on background reform, etc. Only when and if Trump took the lead. I’m right behind ya, Mr. President, he was saying: A thousand yards behind ya. But in a way, can you blame McConnell, strategically? Trump has been up down closed open go start all over the place on guns. He had staked out a position, got the Hill leaders behind him—only to kick the slats right from under them only minutes later. Understandably, why would a political leader like McConnell want to stake out first only to be made a total fool of by his President—again? So, I really despaired of any-

thing ever happening to break this cycle. No effort from the government. Something is really, really, really seriously, systemically wrong as hell when a freely elected popular legislature like the Senate cannot heed the call of over 85 percent of Americans favoring strong background check reforms, and a majority seeking gun-type limits, which is a thornier, more debatable and admittedly more nuanced issue. Background check enhancements and closing sales loopholes? No brainer! Slam Dunk, right? Wrong. So, we hope maybe the private sector will do something. After all, nothing is more central, speaks louder than and impacts all more than the market, right? On Tuesday, the market did so. Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest private-sector employer and largest retail chain — a company that serves more American lives crosscutting all areas of the country than any other company save perhaps than Amazon removed handguns and small barrel weapons from their stores and stopped

selling ammunition as well. With over 4,000 stores—and selling a predominately Red State NRA community writ large, this was not an insignificant move on several levels. A clear message was sent by Wal-Mart’s chief executive and leadership: If government won’t act, we will. How can we serve the communities we take money from by possibly enabling this senseless rash of mass killings? After all, unheralded and virtually unreported, two Wal-Mart employees were shot dead at a store by an ex-employee in Mississippi. After all, it was at a Wal-Mart in El Paso where the hate-fueled egged-on-online-alt-right-immigrant-hate chose to slaughter his victims. Dick’s Sporting Goods will likely follow suit. This is a gutsy decision by these stores because they serve the hunting/sporting communities who purchase legal firearms and supplies. If these two stores stop selling ammo and most guns, that leaves the smaller shops—which

are far less in number and power than these two chains—as well as the gun shows and online sellers as the supply line. The focus will now be on Microsoft to put pressure on the online sellers; from Google to restrict ads for gun shows and online sales; pressure has already been felt by Apple that has suspended ApplePay for most gun purchases. There ARE legal gun purchases in America. There are legal, appropriate and permissible guns, supplies and ammo in America. The Second Amendment is here to stay. The Supreme Court was pretty clear in District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008). Municipalities cannot ban guns — but the late Scalia left the door open to reasonable regulation. But that is not going to happen. The private sector, through acts as significant as Wal-Mart, will lead the day. Jon F. Weinstein Port Washington

Trump critics hypocrites, deniers of the truth

I

was surprised to see two Pro-Trump articles published; one written by Mark Layton and the other one by Eric Spinner. Usually, there’s only the uberliberal bias submitted by Karen Rubin and of course, Jerry Kramer. What Mr. Kremer fails to mention in his “Corner” is

that political nastiness has been around both here in the U.S. and in other civilized countries for hundreds of years. Also, Mr. Kremer uses the race card when he claimed that the President assaulted “people of color.” The president’s attack on Elijah Cummings was in direct response to Cummings’ unpro-

fessional attack on one of the President’s picks up before the House. And if you’ve ever been to Baltimore, the president was right on target with his criticism. I’ve been to Baltimore many times and have seen it myself. The bottom line is that the left simply hates President

Trump for beating Hillary and that the president is using social media to his advantage. The illegal immigration issue is a joke with some on the left saying that the United States, in general, and the president, in particular, caused the problem that he is breaking up families, hurting children and that his

policies have led to the death of many immigrants. In another breath, they advocate abortions up to the baby’s birth. What hypocrites! Vic Oliveri Williston Park

EWSD not transparent on suit with village

T

he East Williston School District is not being transparent. The East Williston School District is not being open with residents about the facts of the lawsuit they initiated against the Village of East Williston pertaining to the installation of a fence at the North Side School. The School District would have residents believe that the approval from the state Department of Education for the North Side construction project included local zoning for the fence. It did not. The School District failed

to publicize a letter, dated May 7, 2019, that they had received from the State Education Department, which states that, on the issue of the construction of the fence, the SED’s approval of the school’s building project “is separate and distinct from any local zoning approval.” It further states, “the district is advised to resolve any potential local zoning issues…directly with the Village of East Williston.” So what did the School District do? Instead of complying with the SED directive, the School District sued the Village of East

Williston demanding that the village withdraw a letter dated May 17, 2019, requesting that the school district conforms to the Village Zoning Code. What was the District’s intent to have the Village withdraw its request? Was it so that the School District can do an end-run around the SED letter? Why would the school district think that it has a blanket exemption from local zoning laws, ignoring the SED letter to the contrary? Even a subsequent letter to the District from the SED dated Sept. 3 states that it takes no position on local zoning approv-

al requirements. Further exacerbating the matter, the School District then began constructing the fence in total disregard of the SED directive and in total disregard of the Village of East Williston zoning regulations. What makes the School District superintendent and the school board believe that they are above the laws and regulations of New York State and Village of East Williston? Fortunately, a group of concerned residents banded together and on Aug. 23 obtained a Temporary Restraining Order immediately halting the con-

struction. Unfortunately, the school district is now appealing this decision. When does it stop? What a waste of taxpayer dollars! Clearly, the school district must abide by the law and follow the legally required process. Even the youngsters at North Side are taught that. Contact the school district at (516) 333-1630 to speak with Superintendent Elaine Kanas. Insist that this costly and unnecessary lawsuit be dropped. Rita Botensten East Williston

Trump continues to be a gift to America

T

his is my fourth letter expressing my gratitude at having President Trump residing in office. I previously mentioned 72 reasons. Here are 25 more. The Federal Reserve system, with its central bank and its fractional reserve banking policies is an evil institution. Germany recently issued a 10-year note with a negative yield. After 10 years, you have agreed to redeem your investment at a loss. This is insanity. This perversion could only happen with a central bank controlling the currency. How are pensions supposed to meet their obligations? We have our own central bank. Bernanke and Yellen never ruled out negative interest rates for us. Trump is nominating Judy Shelton to the Federal Reserve board. She has an appreciation for the role of gold as an important part of currency stability. As it stands now, the government is free to debase the currency and neuter the lifetime savings of hard-working citizens.

The Trump administration is now challenging rogue, activist judges. The intention is to bring a case to the Supreme Court challenging the ability of District Court judges to “nationalize” their decisions. Right now, the 9th District Court in California, has been allowed to apply its force of law to other districts as well as their own. This District Court has been overturned by the Supreme Court 80% of the time. In one outrageous decision, this court attempted to suspend the statewide election for California Governor (which eventually was won by Arnold Schwarzenegger) after the Supreme Court intervened. This will end “judge shopping.” Trump recently appointed two conservative judges to the 9th circuit court. Trump wanted to settle illegal immigrants in Sanctuary cities. I love the idea A White House directive makes government more transparent. Independent agencies with

unelected bureaucrats must have decisions reviewed by the White House. Regulators should not be allowed to operate free of political accountability Wants to make it harder for able-bodied citizens to collect welfare. Obama redefined “sex discrimination” for the Health and Human Services Dept. It defined opposing termination of pregnancy and disagreement over gender identity issues as “sex discrimination.” Religious groups said it violated their freedoms and thought the new definition was overly broad. Trump’s HHS is changing the definition back towards the original form. Trump supported ending asylum protections for most asylum seekers who pass through another country before arriving here. They will be ineligible at the U.S. southern border. They must seek asylum at the first country they enter. The Trump administration has instituted “extreme” vetting for immigrants. This requires visa ap-

plicants to show their social media history. It was first proposed after the massacre in San Bernardino, California. What a pleasure to have a president with guts. We have an immigration crisis at the border because of Congress’ refusal to act and change the asylum laws. Another contributor is the Mexican government’s negligence and/or outright collusion with the immigrants. Trump pressured Mexico with the threat of a 5% tariff on all goods if they do nothing to stop the illegal tide. Mexico complied. They agreed to put 6000 national guard troops on the border. They also agreed to build more migrant centers. Additionally, they froze the bank accounts of 26 human traffickers. Trump supports school vouchers and school choice to replace failed schools controlled by the poisonous public-school teachers’ unions. The new North American Trade Deal has added even more

growth to the U.S. economy than what has already been achieved. Trump gutted the White House Correspondents Dinner. It’s about time. At one time it was enjoyable and funny when Jay Leno’s style was the norm. Lately, it changed to a bitter and hateful diatribe. Trump will now have his own dinner. The administration is shrinking the size of the federal government. Government agencies have been merged. They are also reducing the number of government employees. More are leaving government employment than are being hired. In a monumentally popular executive order among African Americans, Trump has initiated the “First Step” legislation to help convicts negotiate a better transition to life on the outside. Trump is eliminating obstacles to affordable housing. Overregulation is now responsible for 25% of the total cost of new homes. Continued on Page 80

Proposed law would regulate religious schools

S

hould secular education in religious schools get funded by the “state?” It seems that if a new regulation passes in New York State, that is going to be the case. Are public school considered to be as the “state” and religious schools (e.g., Catholic schools and yeshivas) are considered as “church” when it comes to the “separation of church and state?” The answer is it depends on the circumstance, it’s often a gray area. In the past, gray areas have become black or white only after legislative actions or regula-

tory decisions were made. For example, the funds for the religious schools’ transportation come from public schools (“state”) budget. The rationale is the “religious schools” provide both religious and secular education to their students and the religious education does not invalidate the services which necessary for the secular education. There’s a new regulation on the horizon to be decided in early October in connection with New York State’s private schools. If the new regulation is approved, it could affect Catholic schools and yeshivas.

The new regulation would authorize the local authorities from nearby public school districts (“state”) to review non-public schools including religious schools (“church”) in their areas and determine if they are “at least substantially equivalent” to New York State’s standards. Should the local officials (“state”) judge a [religious] school (“church”) as “not substantially equivalent,” then the public officials (“state”) would work with the [religious] school (“church”) according to the regulation proposal. If this regulation passes, the public schools (“state”) can

administrate the non-religious education of Catholic Schools and Yeshivas. What would be the financial impacts if the pubic officials (“state”) are given so much authority to tell the religious schools to modify their methodologies of teaching their secular studies and take the corrective actions when they deem necessary? For instance, they could fire those whom they deem to be bad teachers and hire those whom they deem to be good teachers. What if those who are deemed to be good teachers

would cost more? Effectively, the public official (“state”) would tell the religious schools (“church”) how to spend their money on their secular education. Then, the issue of teaching secular education in religious schools would no longer be considered as a gray area and could not be barred by the separation of church and state. If so, the “state” would be compelled to fund the religious schools for their secular education as they fund public schools. Fred Bassali, Ph.D. Great Neck

Preparing your lawn for fall curb appeal

I

f your exterior looks as good as your interior, fantastic, then you can stop reading! However, if this is not the case then read on. When a purchaser drives by your home, what will they first think if the outside of your property doesn’t reflect the superb condition of the inside (which they haven’t yet seen)? They might just keep driving, especially if you haven’t posted any pictures or maybe things don’t jive with what they are seeing in person and the photos posted online. Fall is approaching so you better get going and start planning what you can do to make the property look more alluring and saleable. We are very fortunate this year with the amount of rainfall we have had locally on Long Island. I may have put on my sprinklers three, maybe four times this entire summer. So I see less brown spots around my neighborhood than previous summers. However, if you have damage from grubs, chinch bugs, sod webworm or any forms of fungus diseases (from overwatering), then some remedies do exist.

First, determine what bug damage you may have by checking the turf by putting a metal can open on both ends and pushing it into the lawn and filling it with water. If chinch bugs still exist, they will float to the top of the water within the can). If you are able to pull back the brown turf area and notice little gray curled up worms with brown noses, then you have grub damage. As far as fungus diseases, the season is about over and I wouldn’t consider applying anything unless it is determined that something severe is present. I also don’t recommend a homeowner applying any chemicals, unless they are well versed and read instructions carefully. The necessary materials should be determined and applied by a licensed and insured state Department of Environment Conservation) applicator who will know to what extent the damage is and exactly what to do. Once the damage is rectified after a three to seven day period, then the existing dead areas need to be removed and/or mechanical thatching

should be considered. However, this can be done by hand if you want the exercise, but using a machine will do a much more thorough job. However, on a cool morning or early evenings I would also suggest that you spray all the weeds (ask you professional or go to one of the big box garden centers for advice or check online) prior to the removal of the dead grasses. You can do this at the same time that the insect application is first applied then the weed control can be followed up with. The next process will be to apply 1-4 lbs per thousand square feet of high-

quality seed, a mix of perennial ryes, hybrid bluegrasses and tall fescues in the sunniest of areas and in mostly shade seed in the areas that lack a sufficient amount of sunlight. The higher the concentration of damage the more seed will need to be applied. if minimal damage exists, then spot seeding may only be necessary. Then lastly, fertilize with a 32-7-5 balanced slowrelease organic fertilizer. This will enhance the seedlings to grow, build a strong root, tiller and rhizome system throughout the fall, late fall and winter months. Water your lawn care for ten to twenty minutes per zone daily until the grass sprouts and then every other day. You can place a straightsided can on your lawn and when you see one inch of water accumulating inside it, then you will know you have water the ground six to eight inches deep and know the amount of time it took to set your clock or however you do it. Obviously, when it rains, skip that day and make sure your automatic sprinklers have a rain shut off device,

(since it has been the law for many, many years) so they do not turn on. Why waste our precious water? I have seen sprinkler systems working during rainstorms and wonder why these homeowners aren’t aware of this happening? A green lush lawn will always be much more appealing to a purchaser, especially when they drive by to check out your property. As far as landscaping and adding trees and ornamental shrubs, I will follow up with another column on that subject matter. Remember, when selling, the buyers will be very critical of your home if it is not presented properly, especially with prices softening and you want to receive the best return on your property.

Kaplan to draft ‘anti-corruption’ bill Would require those seeking gov contracts to disclose financial ties to poltiical parties BY TOM MCCARTHY Legislation being crafted by state Sen. Anna Kaplan (D-Great Neck) would require those seeking contracts with a municipality to disclose all financial relationships to any local political party leaders or their immediate families. Kaplan’s legislation would also require that any application for a municipal contract that did not include a signed disclosure statement indicating these relationships would be considered null and void. “Long Island has been rocked by so many scandals in recent years involving govPHOTO BY JANELLE CLAUSEN ernment contractors and their inappropriate relationships to people in power.

Anna Kaplan (D-Great Neck) would re- shine a strong light on these relationships so that the peoquire companies pursuing government contracts to disclose financial ple in our communities can relationships with political party leadership. begin to have faith in their

governments again,” Kaplan said in a statement. The legislation is in response to controversy over a contract extension for a vendor at Lido Beach. At a July 31 news conference, Hempstead Supervisor Laura Gillen said the contract concerning the town’s Malibu Shore Club at Lido Beach with the Freeport company Dover Gourmet Corp. led to discounted and reduced fees that resulted in a giveaway of approximately $169,000 in “taxpayer resources” every year. The controversy over the contract started after Newsday reported in July that Dover failed to pay the Town of Hempstead $674,000 from 2013 to 2014 and has not paid $531,400 owed in rent in nearly a year. Gillen said that an outside legal counsel should investi-

gate the specifics of the contract and the implications of any oral agreements that may have been made outside of the official contract. “My administration has been rooting out corruption in the Town of Hempstead since day one, but I have been met with constant obstruction,” Gillen said in a statement. “Increased state oversight into municipal contracting will assist me in addressing waste, fraud, and abuse that council-members refuse to acknowledge or address. I urge state lawmakers to join Senator Kaplan in this important legislation.” On Aug. 6, the Hempstead Town Board approved hiring Hogan Lovells US LLP to provide legal and investigative services to look into the April 12 extension of a contract with Dover Gourmet Corp.

Weinstock honors 9/11 victims with climb BY R OB E RT PE L A E Z Michael Weinstock is running. Aside from running his campaign to represent New York’s 3rd Congressional District, he has been hitting the gym to work on his cardio for a very important visit to New Zealand this week. “I’m surprised I haven’t gotten a lot of questionable looks at the gym,” Weinstock said. “Not even for the firefighter equipment I have on, but for the heavy amount of sweating to go along with it.” The 9/11 responder from Great Neck had been gearing up for the trip, as he joined forces with New York firefighters and their New Zealand counterparts to climb the Auckland Sky Tower to commemorate Sept. 11 - a journey he completed on Tuesday. The climb began after a reading of the names of all 343 New York firefighters whose lives were lost 18 years ago. Weinstock said he was given the American flag to carry during the opening ceremony, and was even able to stop during the climb for a quick picture with a printed image of Jonathan Ielpi, a long-time friend and fellow firefigthter who lost his life on 9/11. “September 11th is never going to be an enjoyable day, but this was a whole lot better than sitting in a memorial service”, Weinstock said after he climbed the 1,267 steps to the top of the 1,076-foot tower.

Michael Weinstock treating a woman on Sept. 11, 2001. Organized by the United States Embassy for the past several years, the event is a way to honor those whose lives were taken on Sept. 11. “I’ve actually been to New Zealand before,” Weinstock said. “But I’ve never done the climb up. I’m excited to be a part of this. It definitely takes the mind off all the negative memories and gives me something healthy to focus on.” Weinstock’s connection with New Zealand stems from the events that unfolded on Sept. 11. As he was attending

to civilians in need of immediate medical assistance, a married couple came up and without hesitation, started helping him. “When I flew back out to reconnect with them, it was a surreal feeling,” Weinstock recalled. “It was odd to think I was here, surrounded by new friends, eating dinner in a foreign country, all in part to what unfolded that day.” Now 18 years since one of the most infamous days in United States’ history, Weinstock was among over 160 fire-

fighters past and present who climbed the tallest freestanding structure in the Southern Hemisphere. Each firefighter entered the building with a tag of an individual rescue worker, dedicating the climb in that person’s memory. Weinstock already had someone in mind to dedicate his climb to. “This day is never easy for me,” said Weinstock in regard to Sept. 11. “Aside from the massive tragedies that struck the entire nation, losing your best friend in the midst of it all hurts a lot.” Ielpi was among the nearly 3,000 whose lives were lost on 9/11. Ielpi’s memory lives on through his memorial at Firefighters Park in Great Neck, but Weinstock has his own ways to remember his “best buddy.” “I love talking about him to people who didn’t get the chance to meet him,” Weinstock said. “The guy was an absolute ham. A total riot. And his storytelling would captivate any room at any given time. There’s no better way to honor him in my mind. He would love that I’m doing this.” The climb began after a reading of the names of all 343 New York firefighters whose lives were lost 18 years ago. Weinstock was given the American flag to carry during the opening ceremony, and was even able to stop for a quick picture with a printed out image of Ielpi during the climb.

Herricks overpaid custodians: audit Continued from Page 1 State auditors also found that the district paid $29,135 in overtime to employees who substituted for other employers absent on their scheduled workdays. The auditors found that about 40 percent of these absences had been preapproved and proper scheduling could have avoided or reduced the overtime. The report’s recommendations included adopting a payroll policy with clear guidelines and procedures for overtime work, including preapproval of overtime, and considering scheduling substitutes for employees whose absences are

preapproved to reduce overtime costs. The Herricks district has 4,000 students, 879 employees and a $117.5 million budget for the 2019-20 school year. In his response letter, Herricks Superintendent Fino Celano said, “In the cases of overtime paid to complete the work of staff members who are absent due to illness, the District would like to emphasize that, as indicated in the audit report, all absences which required overtime coverage were properly recorded and documented in the District’s employee attendance monitoring system.” Celano went on to say that the district has already begun

hiring per diem substitutes to cover for absent employees, which he said will reduce the amount of overtime needed in this category. In his letter, Celano reported that the district had seen a decrease of $188,474 between the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school year in overtime expenditures. “The School District wishes to extend our appreciation to the [comptroller’s office] for the opportunity to respond to the draft Report. We certainly support the audit process and welcome all efforts to improve District operations and efficiencies that will benefit our taxpayers.” Celano said.

Judge halts North Side school fence Continued from Page 1 “There is no legal obligation of the district to file for a second building permit,” Sheahan said, adding that he village board was “well aware that that is not a requirement.” Mark Kamberg, president of the school board, said the legal fees are up to $56,000 for the district. The fence lawsuit was not included in the district’s litigation budget and the board will have to transfer money to pay for it, he said. Kamberg said that public school districts like East Williston file their permits with the state only and must pass its legal requirements and mandates. “We are within full compliance with the law,” Kamberg said. “We apply for our permits through the state at the Education Department as this is a public institution of the state.” The district has done work on a new first-grade wing, playground and roof for the elementary school in the past couple of years without having to file a village building permit, Kamberg said.

than 4 feet high to comply with local code and the retaining wall and location of gate openings will impede emergency vehicles from entering the property. While the board said it could not

comment on the specifics of the pending litigation during the Aug. 19 meeting, Mayor Bonnie Parente said of the district: “They are not going about this as they should be. They are not being forthcoming.” Village Trustee Christopher Siciliano said that in a June 20 meeting with school administrators, requested changes to the location of gate openings were agreed upon but the school board later changed its plans and reneged on the agreement. “The village has asked the Board of Education to adhere to the village code,” said the village attorney, Jefferey Blinkoff. “We are responding appropriately in the legal action,” Hausner said. Hausner said that the village is not for or against the fence, but just wants it to adhere to code. “In sum, there are residents of EW who want the fence. There are residents of EW who do not feel the need for a fence,” Hausner said. “The Village Board of EW is not and cannot take a position on whether the EWSD erects a fence.”

SCHOOL & CAMP DIRECTORY

Contractors underpaid workers by $220K: audit Continued from Page 67 and 92 instances of employees working over 80 hours in a week. All Metro agreed to calculate and pay the underpayments identified in the audit to its employees and said it would seek input from its information service department to better maintain records. A six-month review of the company is currently underway and should be available in the near future, as stated in the report. Companies with a county service contract of at least $25,000, financial assistance contracts of at least $50,000, and where there are at least 10 employees are required to pay employees a living wage. Contractors can apply to receive a waiver if they meet certain criteria. The report identifies the two most common exemptions as the highest-paid employee is paid less than six times the salary of the lowest-paid employee and compliance with the living wage law would increase the contractor’s annual budget by more than 10 percent. Schnirman and Nassau County Executive Laura Curran closed a loophole in July that allowed subsidiaries to qualify for a waiver without the county’s review of its parent company’s finances. The report states that nine contractors requested waivers in 2018, and eight were granted. Six of the eight were granted full

waivers and two were granted partial waivers. In Schnirman’s letter preceding the report, he said that waiver requests were “routinely granted” by prior administrations. If contractors are found in violation of the living wage law, the county can impose a fine of $500 for each employee each week he or she did not pay the required wages. If the violator does not pay the proper wages within 30 days of the initial notice, the penalty is raised to $1,000. If another 30 days pass without mitigation, the fees increase to 2,000 each week. The launch of a multilingual hotline for reporting living wage violations recorded 210 percent more calls in 2018 than the year prior, the audit states. The Living Wage Advisory Board also met four times in 2018, compared with one meeting in 2017. Since the living wage law was enacted in 2007, over $1.03 million in unpaid wages has been recovered, with auditors uncovering 842 instances of underpayment. Some $327,968 has been recovered for uncompensated time off with 918 instances of underpayment found, according to Schnirman’s audit. Several audits were initiated over the course of 2018 and the results are expected to be made available before the end of the year, according to the report.

Defining ed standards down Continued from Page 15 Earlier, he had told The Wall Street Journal, “You’re going to reinvent the wheel again? This is scary as heck for a new family. We are supposed to be dissuading these fears, not exacerbating them.” While I can only hope that Councilman Cornegy and his confreres stop this latest assault on education

standards, it will never stop de Blasio and his social justice warriors from their mission to impose their flawed ideological formulas on the City’s 1.1 million pupils. They will not give up until standards are defined down enough to ensure all students receive an equally poor education.

Trump a gift to America Continued from Page 71 Many Republican senators told Trump to drop the Kavanagh nomination and move on to another candidate. Trump said NO! I am a strong supporter of 2nd amendment rights. The following will not appeal to those who want to confiscate guns from the American citizenry. Trump has revoked The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. This treaty would have subjected American gun owners to the ministrations of the honest, freedom-loving, U.N. bureaucrats. Is my cynicism showing? Formed the International Religious Freedom Alliance to protect the human rights of religious people. Christians are the most persecuted people on the planet now, particularly in Muslim countries. Other religious groups are protected as well. Pastor Brunson was arrested in Turkey on false charges. Trump’s pressure on Turkey resulted in his release. Supports Senator Ted Cruz’ proposal to designate ANTIFA as a domestic terror organization.

Trump canceled student debt for disabled veterans Signed the Taxpayer First Act. This stops the IRS from confiscating property from a citizen without first filing a criminal charge. Trump got Twitter to restore the account of an “angel mom.” “Angel moms” are mothers who lost children due to the actions of illegal immigrants. This mother had posted a criticism of Kamala Harris’ immigration positions. Trump got his way with a court decision to allow the military to fund the wall. Representative Cummings of Maryland viciously lambasted the head of the Dept of Homeland Security and his border personnel during a congressional hearing. Trump shoved some of it back in his face by pointing out that things were worse in Cummings own district and he should pay attention to that, instead of political grandstanding.

N. Hempstead to host 12th ‘Kids Safety Day’ The Town of North Hempstead will present the 12th annual “Kids Safety Day” on Thursday, Sept. 19 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Mary Jane Davies Green in Manhasset. The event is designed to engage children and their parents in education about fire, the internet, car safety and more. The Manhasset Lakeville Fire Department will be on hand with a smokehouse that will allow children to get a handson experience on how to safely exit a burning structure. Kids Safety Day will also feature activities by the Little Gym of Roslyn, giveaways, arts and crafts and more.

“We look forward to hosting Kids Safety Day every year,” said North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “It has been such an important community tradition over the years, as we allow our children and their families to learn how to stay safe in a variety of ways. Through partnerships with local organizations, we have created an event that is filled with useful information and resources for our residents.” Mary Jane Davies Green is located across from Town Hall on Plandome Road in Manhasset. For more information please call 311 or (516) 869-6311 or visit www.northhempsteadny.gov.

Town commemorates 9/11 in Manhasset Continued from Page 12 a breeze. Really, in so many ways it was a day like the one we’re experiencing right now. A day full of hope and promise, a day full of anticipation.” Those present at the town’s memorial for the events of Sept. 11, 2001, including North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth, town council members Viviana Russell, Peter Zuckerman, Angelo Ferrara, Veronica Lurvey, Lee Seeman and Dina DeGiorgio, state Sen. Anna Kaplan (D-Great Neck) and countless residents and families, listened as Wink continued. “There were so many people starting their day, probably completely unaware of just how beautiful a day it really was, as we focused on our immediate needs, immediate concerns, immediate frustrations,” Wink said. “Whether it was commuting or just finding ourselves completely distracted by the world around us, we overlooked the beauty that surrounds us every day.” Wink then stepped aside for a moment of silence at 9:03 a.m., the minute United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center. Minutes before, the six town council members had read the names of the 57 residents of the Town of North Hempstead who perished in the attacks 18 years ago. Bosworth, in her speech, quoted the poem “The Names,” written in 2002 by Billy Collins, then poet laureate of the United States, and called attention to legislation passed to extend medical benefits for first responders. “Someone said to me, just before, ‘This is the 18th year.'” Bosworth said. “And I said, ‘And it doesn’t get easier.’ It shouldn’t get easier.” Bosworth also noted that the Albertson

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5253, which presented the color guard, had assisted the town with the ceremony for 18 years, and thanked them. Wink also thanked the Chamber Choir of St. Mary’s High School in Manhasset, which performed the National Anthem, “America the Beautiful” and “Beautiful City” at the ceremony. Remarks then came from representatives of different faiths, including the Rev. Victor Lewis of the Friendship Baptist Church of Roslyn, Dr. Isma Chaudhry of the Islamic Center of Long Island and Rabbi Anchelle Perl of the Chabad of Mineola. Earlier in the ceremony, the invocation was delivered by the Rev. Dr. Tim TenClay of the Community Reformed Church in Manhasset. “The lessons from Sept. 11, 2001, are too powerful to fade into the bland pages of history, the memories too searing, the loss too dear to forget,” TenClay said. “But simply gathering to relive the loss and the pain of 9/11 should not be the end product of a ceremony. In an age where division and derision is an increasing part of our national discourse, pain and loss too often lends itself to hate and fear, further stoking division in our nation.” TenClay then echoed the sentiments of his fellow speakers, encouraging the pursuit of unity in the face of struggle. “Our mission this day cannot be simply to hate those who hate us, to inflict suffering on those who made us suffer,” TenClay said. “Rather, we should gather together to rekindle our collective strength in honor of the memories of our loved ones. We should gather together, to steel our resolve to heal our nation’s pain to mend that which was torn from us as a society, to persevere as a people in the face of loss and tragedy.”

Defining moments in world of sports

A

defining moment for an athlete is a point at which the essential nature or character of the player is revealed to all. It tends to be characterized by an extreme of bravery, beauty, courage or kindness. These rare moments in sports are more transcendent than induction into the Hall of Fame or the podium awards at the Olympics because defining moments are surprising, unscripted, powerful and spontaneous. One cannot predict when a defining moment is about to occur and for most athletes it never does. But on a special rare occasion, the crowd is treated to such a moment and it will become iconic and talked about for many years. In 1965 when Mohammed Ali was 23 he knocked out Sonny Liston in 1 minute and 44 seconds of the first round and Neil Leifer of Sports Illustrated snapped what some say in the greatest sports photo of the century. There was a young and powerful Ali towering over Liston who was flat on his back and beckoning him to “get up and fight, sucker!” That gesture of triumphant confidence is what you call a defining moment that only brazen youth is capable of. In 2014 during the Ryder Cup golf witnessed a defining moment when Patrick Reed shushed the crowd at Gleneagles. As he slowly dismantled Europe’s Henrik Stenson to the shock and dismay of the European crowd, Reed decided to turn the tables on them with a shushing gesture every time he won another hole. This

shushing gesture came to represent Reed’s sheer will power, boldness, tenacity and humor and eventually earned him the nickname “Captain America.” We were treated to yet another defining moment closer to home during this year’s 2019 U.S. Open at Flushing Meadows in New York City. In the 4th round of the women’ singles matches the defending champion and number one seed Naomi Osaka from Japan faced the 15-year old American phenomenon Coco Gauff in front of a sold-out crowd of 24,000 excited fans at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Nearly everyone present was pulling for Coco and what made this matchup even more emotional was that the crowd recalled last year when Osaka was greeted to loud

boos during the awards ceremony because she had the nerve to beat Serena Williams. Such is the way of sports and fan attachments. Reed faced hostility when he beat Stenson during his Ryder Cup matches in Europe and Osaka faced hostility when she beat Serena

Williams. And this year it was back to the future again with Osaka facing yet another hostile crowd all pulling for the young American sweetheart. In the event, you have been hiding under a rock and have not heard what happened let me be the carrier of good news. Osaka beat Coco which in some way was inevitable. Post-match interviews always take place on the court following the match with the winner being interviewed in front of the crowd and the loser slouching her way back to the locker room to cry in private. But this time Naomi Osaka whispered something into the ear of Coco and insisting that she be interviewed first by telling Coco it would be better to express her feelings to

the crowd and that the crowd wanted to hear from her. After that is was all tears from Coco and then from Osaka. When the mic was placed in front of Osaka the interviewer said what everyone in the crowd was thinking “Wow, you really are a class act Naomi!” Which of course she is. Even though Naomi Osaka is a mere 21 years old herself and actually just starting out on her tennis career, she has defined herself in a brief two minute period as gracious, generous, kind and humble. That moment was like the other two defining moments I described. It was spontaneous, unpredictable, emotionally charged and iconic. Such is the value of competitive sports. Because sport is so public and yet so emotionally personal in nature it offers opportunities for these defining moments to occur. Iconic moments like the three described define not only the players involved but these moments also define what it means to be a real human being. Mohammed Ali showed us that humans can have savagery yet beauty. Patrick Reed showed us that humans can have incredible tenacity and yet be humorous. And Naomi Osaka showed us that one can be a champion and yet be extremely humble at the very same time. Such is the wonder of sports. So let us take a moment to say thanks to the transcendent Mohammed Ali, Patrick Reed and Naomi Osaka for providing the world examples of what it means to be a real human and a real champion at the very same time. And that’s not an easy thing to do.

Just in time for the start of school, Nassau County has installed pedestrian safety devices on East Williston Avenue in front of the North Side Elementary School. Nassau County Presiding Officer Richard Nicolello worked with school officials,

parents, Nassau County Public Works, East Williston Mayor Bonnie Parente and County Executive Curran to secure the devices, including a device known as a rectangular rapid flashing beacon. This beacon will allow pedestrians to call attention to

drivers that pedestrians will be walking across the crosswalk. The beacon was installed along with ADA-accessible ramps, school zone signage, and new crosswalk markings. Submitted by the Office of Presiding Officer Rich Nicolello.
