SUNNYSIDE COMMUNITY SERVICES CELEBRATES VOLUNTEERS Last Thursday, Sunnyside Community Services (SCS) held its annual Volunteer Recognition Celebration to honor 400 community heroes. “With their gifts of time, energy, dedication to service, caring smiles, kind words, and listening ears,” stated Rita Manton, director of volunteer services and community relations at SCS, “our volunteers prove every day that even the smallest acts of caring have enormous potential to turn lives around, and help build strong, healthy communities.” The value of volunteerism is undeniable. President Obama has been outspoken in calling on all Americans to participate in the nation’s recovery and renewal by serving in our communities. According to Michelle Nunn, CEO of Points of Light Institute, “Volunteer service is at the center of our national character, and volunteers embody our country’s efforts.”

“Our volunteers tirelessly take action to improve conditions in our community,” said Theresa Greenberg, associate executive director for community services, speaking at the event on behalf of Judy Zangwill, SCS’s executive director. According to Greenberg, volunteers at SCS are involved in multiple service areas, from helping to serve over 200 meals a day to teaching art, writing, and ESL classes, providing administrative support, tutoring high school students, and assisting the participants of the SCS Social Adult Day program, among other duties. Robert McCreanor, SCS’s Second Vice President, cited the value of volunteer service. According to McCreanor, who first came to SCS as a volunteer for the College Readiness Program, “much of what we deal with as board members is finding ways to keep SCS’s programs available during tough times. We have many great supporters

All of the volunteers received accolades and certificates of honor from elected officials in attendance at the event, including

CROWLEY SPEARHEADS BIPARTISAN CALL ON U.S. DOT TO APPROVE AGREEMENT THAT WILL CREATE JOBS IN QUEENS Airline Slots Exchange will Create New Jobs at LaGuardia Airport U.S. Congressman Joseph Crowley (DQueens, the Bronx), along with 39 of his colleagues, called on the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to quickly approve the agreement between Delta, US Airways, Airtran, Westjet, Spirit Airlines, and jetBlue

to exchange takeoff and landing slots at LaGuardia and Washington Reagan National Airports. This transaction would generate thousands of new jobs at LaGuardia Airport, as well as increase economic activity in and around the airport. “Our economy is on the mend, and this project is exactly the kind of initiative that will keep us moving forward,” said Congressman Crowley. “With the green light from the Department of Transportation, this

slots exchange will give air travelers more options, create an estimated 7,000 jobs in Queens and reduce air noise by removing older, louder planes from the sky. I thank my colleagues for joining me in the call to DOT to let this proposal move forward. ” Under the agreement, Delta airlines would operate an additional 110 slots at LaGuardia Airport, and would give up some of its slots at Washington Reagan National Airport in Washington, DC. Importantly,

the airline would subsequently begin a multimillion dollar construction program at LaGuardia to connect the existing Delta and US Airways terminals. An estimated 7,000 new jobs would be created as a result of this agreement, including construction, airport operational and tourism-related jobs. Additionally, Delta would phase out use of older, loud turbo-prop planes for quieter jets – resulting in less air noise polluting the communities around the airport.

Sunnyside Kiwanis was happy to host their annual street fair on Greenpoint Ave. They extend their thanks to the merchants who make this possible and ask the community to tell the merchants how much they enjoy the street fair so it can continue for the future.

State Senator George Onorato (D-Queens) today urged local women who are in need of breast cancer screening to be aware that the American-Italian Cancer Foundation mobile mammography van will be visiting the Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement House on May 20th to provide no-cost mammograms to eligible women 40 and older. “This is a wonderful collaboration between the American-Italian Cancer Foundation and the Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement House to help safeguard the health of women who have had limited access to breast health care,” said Senator Onorato, noting that Multi-Diagnostic Services, Inc. is providing the screening services. “I urge all local women

who might be eligible to participate in this screening to call right away for an appointment, which is required, and for more information.” The number to call is 1-718784-7447, extension 154. The Mobile Mammography Van will be at the Settlement House, located at 1025 41st Avenue in Long Island City, on Thursday, May 20th, beginning at 11 a.m. An appointment is necessary to schedule a screening. Eligible women must be 40 years of age or older, New York City residents, and must not have had a mammogram in the past 12 months. For eligible women without health insurance, services will be paid for by the Screening Partnerships of the New York State Cancer Services Program or through

donations made to the AmericanItalian Cancer Foundation. For women who have health insurance, the insurance plan will be billed for the services, but participants will not be charged a copayment or receive a bill. Women with Medicare, Medicaid or other Insurance must bring their cards with them in order to receive services. “This is a great opportunity for local women to take proactive steps to take control of their own health care and receive screening for breast cancer, which is more easily treatable and curable if discovered in its early stages,” said Senator Onorato. “I hope eligible women in my district will make the call: there is nothing to lose and a great deal to gain.”

Assemblymember Michael DenDekker Announces Participation in 2010 New York City Summer Youth Employment Program Assemblymember Michael DenDekker (D-Jackson Heights) today announced that the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) has partnered with the City of New York Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) to offer the 2010 Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP). Sponsored by DYCD, the 2010 Summer Youth Employment Program provides employment opportunities primarily in the areas of Management Operations and Community Operations. There are also a limited number of administrative positions available at NYCHA’s central office locations and preapproved external worksites. “The SYEP program provides a great opportunity for the young people of New York City to make a little money while learning about housing and other community is-

sues in New York City,” Assemblyman DenDekker remarked. “The New York City Housing Authority is seeking to fill some 1,300 summer jobs this year, so I encourage all eligible residents of the 34th Assembly District to take advantage of this opportunity.” The program operates for seven weeks, from July 6, 2010 to August 20, 2010. The program is open to any New Yorker between the ages of 14 and 24 who resides within the five boroughs. Selection of this year’s SYEP participants is made by a lottery operated by the DYCD. Participants will work five days a week for a total of 20-25 hours per week. The program begins at 9:00 a.m. and concludes at 3:00 p.m. each day. In addition, participants are required to attend 17 hours of educational workshops. The hourly rate of pay for participants in the 2010

Summer Youth Employment Program is $7.25. Because of space limitations and the program’s popularity, residents of the 34th Assembly District who are eligible to apply for the 2010 Summer Youth Employment Program are urged to do so as soon as possible. Applications can be made directly on line at www.nyc.gov/ dycd, or can be obtained at Development Management Offices, NYCHA-operated Community Centers, and the Department of Resident Employment Services in Brooklyn. Completed applications must be received to the NYCHA Development Management Office no later than Friday, May 21, 2010. Questions about the SYEP program can be directed to the Human Resources Department at (212) 306-8000, or to Assemblymember DenDekker’s district office at (718) 457-0384.

Maloney Introduces Bill to Jump-Start Job Creation in America Rep. Carolyn Maloney (DNY) introduced legislation to encourage innovation and economic growth by permitting immigrant entrepreneurs greater access to temporary U.S. visas. The bill matches legislation introduced in February by Senators Kerry and Lugar, S. 3029.

The “StartUp Visa Act of 2010” would permit an immigrant entrepreneur to receive a two-year U.S. visa if he or she can show that a qualified U.S. investor is willing to dedicate a significant sum to the immigrant’s startup venture (a minimum of $250,000). “According to Global Entre-

preneurship Monitor, in 2009 the percentage of U.S. residents creating new domestic companies fell more than half— from 12.4% in 2005 to 8% in 2009. But over the same period, the percentage of residents in factor- or efficiency-driven economies who are creating new companies rose

to 11% from 8.7%,” Maloney said. “We’re clearly missing an opportunity here.” “The entrepreneurial spirit is ingrained in our country’s history and success,” Maloney said. “This legislation is needed to promote our global competitiveness, ensuring a strong foundation for

When Investing, Learn Aspects of Risk In life, you can’t avoid all risks — and you shouldn’t try, because endeavors that carry risk also bring the prospect of reward. And it’s certainly the same in the investment world. So instead of trying to invest risk-free, which is impossible, learn to recognize the different types of investment risk while becoming familiar with your own risk tolerance. To start with, let’s quickly look at some of the most common forms of investment risk: • Risk of losing principal — This is the type of risk most commonly associated with investing. You could lose some, or even all, of your principal if you sell an investment, such as a stock, whose value has dropped lower than the purchase price. You can’t eliminate the risk of losing principal, but you may be able to reduce it by buying quality stocks and holding them long enough to overcome short-term market drops. • Inflation risk — With an investment that pays a fixed rate of return, such as a certificate of deposit (CD), you run the risk of not keeping up with inflation, which means you could lose purchasing power over time. Conse-

foreign-born, highly-skilled talent to help create American jobs and promote economic prosperity. That talent pool has always been a crucial factor in our country’s growth, and we must take steps to enable it to continue to do so— especially in the midst of our current recession.”

quently, it’s a good idea not to “overload” on these types of investments. • Interest-rate risk — When you own a bond, your investment is somewhat at the mercy of changing market interest rates. For example, if you buy a bond that pays four percent interest, and market rates rise so that newly issued bonds pay five percent, the relative value of your bond will go down; no one will pay you face value of your bond when they can get new ones that pay higher rates. Of course, if you hold your bonds until maturity, which is often a good idea, you can avoid being victimized by interest-rate risk. • Concentration risk — This type of risk occurs when you have too much of your money concentrated in one area, such as in a particular stock or in one industry. If a downturn strikes that stock or industry, your portfolio could take a big hit. To combat this type of risk, you need to diversify your holdings among stocks, bonds, government securities and other investments. While diversification, by itself, cannot guarantee a profit or protect against a loss, it can help reduce the effect of volatility.

In addition to understanding the above types of risk, you also need to be familiar with your own risk tolerance and how it affects your investment strategy. If you are constantly worried about “the market,” you’ve probably got too many investments that are at risk of losing principal. At the other end of the spectrum, if you’re always concerned that your portfolio won’t grow enough to generate the income you’ll eventually need for retirement, you may be investing too conservatively — and, as a result, you’re inviting inflation risk. Ultimately, you need to match your own risk tolerance with a strategy that allows you to achieve your goals. This will require selfawareness, patience, discipline — and, at times, a willingness to move outside your own “comfort zone.” By learning to balance and manage risk, you can ultimately put yourself in a position to pursue your investment strategy.

As long as you take adequate precautions when using a sun lamp, you should be able to protect your eyes from injury. This means following the recommended exposure time and keeping your eyes closed when the lamp is on your face. Sun lamp burn can be painful. It can feel like there are a thousand particles of sand in each eye. They become very sensitive to ordinary light, which may also cause extreme pain. Usually, however, there is no permanent damage, and the pain subsides after a few days. Sun lamp treatment is normally a safe. In fact, you don’t have to goggles as long as you keep your eyes closed before the switch is turned on and until after the switch is turned off. The ultra-violet rays emitted by the lamp will not penetrate the eyelids. The skin of the eyes will be slightly burned or tanned just as the rest of your exposed body will be. However, if your eyes are bothered in any way after a sun lamp treatment, be sure to have them examined.

Principal Deno Charalambous, Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer and Students.

As Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer’s tour of all the schools in his district continues, he visited Aviation High School on May 4th where he met with the school’s principal, Deno Charalambous, teachers and various influential student leaders. A meeting was held in the

principal’s office regarding the past, present and future of Aviation High School. During this meeting, a group of communityminded students made a formal presentation to Council Member Van Bramer highlighting the importance of installing speed bumps on 35th and 36th streets for

the means of reducing vehicle speed around the school’s immediate parameters, and thus increasing the safety of the students and community. Additionally, Council Member Van Bramer toured the school and visited various aviation maintenance oriented shop classes.

CUTS RIBBON AT THE BIG SIX, CELEBRATING THE PRESERVATION OF NEARLY 1,000 AFFORDABLE HOMES Known as “the jewel of Woodside”, Big Six Towers has long symbolized safe, affordable housing for families in Queens. The seven 16 story residential towers, comprised of 983 units, were placed into service August,1963. Like all aging properties, Big Six had significant capital needs, which totaled $11,550,000. The co-op board members engaged HDC in September 2007 to address these needs through HDC’s Mitchell-

Lama Preservation Programs. HDC’s involvement with Big Six consisted of Mitchell-Lama restructuring and repair loans that restructured existing debt at a lower interest rate and the loan terms were extended. Additionally, their second mortgage no longer accrues interest. This in turn provided low cost financing to fund the much needed project improvements. Finally, HDC would charge no costs of issuance or commitment fees.

“Any day we are able to protect affordable housing is a great day for New York City” said Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer. “I am pleased that working together, HPD and HDC found a way to make these capital improvements without passing the costs along to our Queens’ families. I would like to thank the Mayor, HPD and HDC for ensuring that this model of affordable housing remains for future generations to enjoy.”

TOURS THE WORLD TRADE CENTER SITE Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer toured the World Trade Center site as a member of the Committee on Lower Manhattan Redevelopment, Chaired by Council Member Margaret Chin. Other committee members in attendance were Council Member Stephen Levin and Council Member Fernando Cabrera. “It was a great honor to tour the World Trade Center site with the Committee on Lower Manhattan Redevelopment,” said Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer. “I was pleased to meet some of the workers who are building the Memorial and the Freedom Tower and I greatly look forward to the day that we can share these wonderful monuments with the rest of the City and the world.”

200 Queens High School Students Learn Tips To “GET YOUR GAME UP” The Queens Health Coalition (QHC) recently hosted its Teen Convention at LaGuardia Community College. High School students throughout Queens received helpful tips on healthy living from professionals who spoke on a wide variety of topics ranging from driving safety, to smoking cessation, to teen dating violence, to landing a dream job. The fifth annual event is part of a program of QHC’s, funded by NYS Dept. of Health/Division of Family Health, entitled the Comprehensive Prenatal and Perinatal Services Network. As Phyllis Shafran, QHC’s Executive Director noted: “Many of these teenagers are at-risk of making poor health and social choices which will adversely affect their entire lives. We want them to know that they have options. We don’t want them to become another tragic statistic because of drinking and driving on prom night. We don’t want them to regret having smoked those cigarettes when they reach age 30. And, we want them to understand that they don’t have to give in to peer pressure! Abstinence is still the best deterrent to STDs, HIV and unplanned births. Indeed, the message here today is simple: you can’t be on the top of your game, unless you make wise choices that keep you in play.” For more information concerning health and social issues for young adults call the Queens Health Coalition at 718-762-0346.

RALLYING TO SAVE JOBS AND KEEP LIBRARIES OPEN

TUESDAY May 11, 2010, 1:00 p.m. WHERE: Steps of Queens Library at Flushing, 41-17 Main Street near Kissena Boulevard Borough President Helen Marshall and City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer join community members as they lift their voices to defend Queens Library against the massive proposed budget cuts. If these cuts were to take effect, library service hours would be severely impacted. Weekend service would be a thing of the past nearly everywhere in Queens. Most libraries would be open only two or three days a week and hundreds of workers could lose their jobs. Queens Library is an independent, not-for-profit corporation and is not affiliated with any other library. The Queens Library serves a population of 2.2 million in the most ethnically diverse county in the U.S. With a record 23 million items in circulation for FY 2009, the Library has the highest circulation of any public library system in the U.S. and one of the highest circulations in the world.

AN EYE ON GUTHRIE

A QUESTION AND ANSWER COLUMN

Please email questions to Dr. Guthrie via SherilynSabba@WoodsideHerald.com

Q...Dr. Deb, I don’t understand why you tell me I have dry eyes when my eyes are tearing all the time, please explain it again? A...This is a question that I am asked frequently. Our eyes get dry for a variety of reasons. They may be dry from too much computer work-the staring at the screen makes us blink less and the eyes dry out, women going through menopause get dry everything including the eyes, dry heat in the winter and cold air conditioning air in the summer all make dry eyes worse. In response to the irritation from the dry eye our tear reflex kicks in...Unfortunately we don’t always produce “good” tears..so we are rewetting our eyes with poor quality tears...so we tear too much... that causes the skin around the eyes to break down, make-up to run and vision to get blurry. There are some simple things to do...first I must say that a good comprehensive eye exam is necessary to see if you have a mild, moderate or a severe dry eye. Treatment may be a simple as just consciously blinking (batting those lashes) while working at the computer, using some of the premium artificial tear preparations, using the new eye drop Restasis and sometimes putting punctal plugs in. If you find that you need an artificial tear more than three times a day...you are most likely a moderate dry eye. With proper diagnosis an appropriate treatment program can be started. In time your eyes will produce a good quality tear. The goal with treatment is to have less of the excessive tearing so one can enjoy a better quality of life.

REAL ESTATE FACTS by RITA LOWRY WELCOME HOME REAL ESTATE

A FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING First time buyers… excited to find a good deal, afraid of overextending themselves, confused by all the conflicting reports about real estate. Well, that might describe any or all buyers right now, but those making their very first purchase may feel elevated levels of all these emotions. It helps to have someone offer you some guidance. Don’t be afraid to make your move now, regardless of what you’ve been hearing about the market. With affordability so high, you’ll find a flurry of activity out there, so you’re not alone in making the right decision to begin your home search. Just try not to exercise excessive caution, or you may suffer what has been termed “paralysis by analysis.” Your real estate representative will present you with all the facts and figures you need, and help you to interpret the data so that you can make a sound choice. Now is not the time to vacillate about whether prices or interest rates will still drop. There is nowhere to go now but up. If rates rise to 7.5% (still historically low), the home’s price would have to be reduced nearly 20% to offset the difference in monthly payments. Set aside your uncertainties. Chat with us to help you determine your financial footing, and show you an inventory of well-suited homes matched to your particular goals.

Letters To The Editor The following letters are the opinions of its author and not necessarily those of the Woodside Herald.

Dear Editor, Regarding WalMart and New York City: When I visited the Poconos, I always shopped at WalMart, for a simple reason: The WalMart prices of everything were cheaper than in New York City. WalMart is for shoppers, for people, for savers, for everybody. The opposition to WalMart in New York City comes from the

Unions, and the politicians they have in their back pocket- for a simple reason: Unions are for their members first, last and only. Not for shoppers, not for the people, but for their members. The private sector construction unions, supermarket unions make everything more expensive. The public sector unions are bankrupting the City and the State, starting with the teachers’ unions, through the corrupt, inflated pension payment systems of the Police, Fire and other City unions. Because of its good prices, WalMart is for the people. Because of their high costs, Unions

Onward, My Children By David P. Dixon of Woodside, NY

Al Volpe, Woodside

How better to begin from goodness, far and steadfast journey on toward the righteous mark, than to start upon the pinnacle and tumble downward to the pitwhere you’re going matters more than where you are. Journey steadily my children, press toward the righteous markset your sights upon the light that brightly shines beyond the dark.

Dear Editor, Not too long ago, I sharply criticized the management of Key Food in Sunnyside for years of delay in the promised renovation of their supermarket. But I was delighted to see that construction work has finally commenced, and that the project is considerably grander than originally proposed. Not only will there be a much expanded supermarket at Queens Boulevard and 46th Street, but also a four-story addition at the Greenpoint Avenue corner that will contain office space and rental apartments. Great news for shoppers and for the community! Warren G. Harris
