It’s strike one with strike two on the way for two long-standing Western Queens businesses. On June 5, Strauss Auto Parts announced that it was closing nine stores across New York City, including the one at 48-02 Queens Blvd. at the Sunnyside/Woodside border. Meanwhile, Pathmark recently announced the shuttering of its store at 42-02 Northern Blvd. in Long Island City at the end of August. Local reaction to Pathmark’s demise was mixed. Dorothea Steins, who manages the Entrepreneur Space, a food-and-business incubator on 37th Street, informed that she shops at the local supermarket two or three times a week. She buys products for her personal use and for the clients of the 12,500-square-foot E-Space, which operates around the clock. Plus, many clients run to the store to pick up emergency produce while they cooking food.

“Where are they going to go?” Steins asked. “It leaves a hole in the community.”

End The Noise On June 15th, CM Van Bramer joined local community leaders and the residents of Borden Avenue to call on the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) to “End the Noise” in Long Island City. Residents of Borden Avenue in Long Island City have been complaining about the excessive noise produced by idling LIRR trains at various hours throughout the day. In an effort to alleviate the issue for local residents, Van Bramer is requesting the LIRR reduce the amount of time the train engines are kept idling as well as look into devising a system by which the trains can be moved further away from the residential development. He is also requesting the LIRR look into developing a permanent solution to address the persistent noise pollution as additional residential properties continue emerge in the vicinity of the train yard. “The residents of Borden Avenue deserve their own personal share of peace and tranquility after a hard day’s work just like every other New Yorker,” said Van Bramer. “We need solutions that will improve their quality of life. The LIRR has addressed this issue before and needs to once again. I look forward to working with the LIRR on keeping Long Island City one of New York City’s premiere neighborhoods.” Over the past decade, Long Island City has seen a gradual increase of residential property develop. As the neighborhood continues to experience growth, there is a need for city agencies to adapt to the changing environment.

Sunnyside resident Sharmeela Mediratta said that she had stopped shopping there a few years ago because she found the market dirty and bereft of quality products. Queens Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Seth Bornstein added: “We’re always sad to see a loss of a supermarket, and we hope it will be replaced soon.” Mary Connor, a spokesperson for A&P, issued the following statement: “Our Pathmark store in Long Island City, NY, will close at the end of August, which is four months prior to the expiration of the existing lease term. We notified our union partners on May 23, and we began notifying associates on May 29. As part of the store closing process, future assignments will be handled pursuant to associate’s respective collective bargaining agreements. While this is a very difficult circumstance for our associates, customers, partners and the local communities, we remain focused on providing great value and service to our customers.” Pathmark is owned by the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company Inc., which filed for bankruptcy in December 2011. As such, it will close 14 supermarkets in four states. Based in Montvale, NJ, A&P operates 320 stores in six states under such trade names as Best Cellars, Food Basics, The Food Emporium, Superfresh and Waldbaum’s. Without much warning or publicity, Strauss, which is based in South River, NJ, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and terminated almost 600 workers last week. The company’s website portal simply displays the following statement: “All of the Strauss Auto Stores have closed.”

Cops Collar Creep For Alleged Canine Killing

by Rob MacKay

A Sunnyside man was arrested last Saturday for allegedly punching his pet so hard that she died from traumatic brain injury. Ted Shuttleworth, who weighs over 200 pounds, was charged with smacking his roughly five-pound poodle named “Lola” in a fit of rage on May 29, according to reports. After the five-year-old canine died, Shuttleworth, 51, an administrative assistant at New York University, took Lola to a veterinarian. Suspecting foul play, the vet’s office sent the pooch to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals for a necropsy. “This is a clear case of inexplicable brutality against a tiny, helpless animal vic-



tim,” stated Stacy Wolf, vice president and chief counsel of the ASPCA’s Humane Law Enforcement department. “The necropsy established in graphic detail that this dog died a violent death.” Shuttleworth faces up to one year in prison, if convicted. On the same day not far away, another Queens denizen was arrested for pet abuse. Reportedly, Richmond Hill resident Shakisha Codling was nabbed by ASPCA agents for neglecting and starving her 18month-old female pit bull, Zellie. Allegedly, Zellie was tied to a tree with no food or water at a residence on 97th Avenue, but she survived. Upon ASPCA intake in March 2012, she was 32.1 pounds, but now Zellie weighs 48.5 pounds and will eventually be up for adoption.

Vote To Help Maintain And Improve Local Parks With thoughts of fresh-air recreation on the minds of many people as summer approaches, NYS Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. (D-Queens) recently voted to approve legislation (S.2686) to establish a state-level “Adopt-a-Park” program to encourage volunteers to help maintain and improve their hometown parks. Addabbo, who wrote the legislation creating the New York City “Adopt-aPark” program when he served on the New York City Council, explained, “Providing volunteers with the opportunity to be stewards of our parks throughout New York is a win-win for everyone involved. Families and individuals who visit the parks will reap the benefits of the hard work performed by volunteers, and the volunteers themselves will have the satisfaction of knowing they are making a positive difference in their communities and helping to preserve their environment.” Under the bill, the State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation

Meet Me At MoMA: Exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art Highlights Works by People with Dementia and Their Family Members or Care Partners. Seeing your artwork displayed on a museum wall is a dream for many. Thanks to a program partnership with The Museum of Modern Art, members of the Sunnyside Community Services’ Adult Day Program were able to do just that at the opening reception for an exhibition of participant artwork on Tuesday, June 5, 2012. The partnership program between MoMA and the SCS Adult Day Program is one of a number of programs the Museum has developed for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. Other programs include Meet Me at MoMA, a monthly interactive gallery program during non-public hours, and The MoMA Alzheimer’s Project. Funded by a major grant from MetLife Foundation, The MoMA Alzheimer’s Project is a nationwide expansion of MoMA’s art and dementia programs, wherein Museum staff develop resources that can be used by other arts institutions, assisted-living facilities, and community organizations serving people with dementia. “It was very enlightening as to the involvement the museum has with regard to seniors and those with disabilities,” said Don Lepore, son of one of the artists whose work was on display. “Mom’s involvement in the Center and such extra activities as museum visits go a long way to helping cope with her condition.” The SCS Adult Day Program has been partnering with MoMA for over a year. Museum educators visit SCS and lead a discussion on art based on significant pieces from the Museum’s collection. The discussion ranges from topics such as “The Artist’s Process,” “Photography and Creative Documentation,” and “Modern Visions of Light.” A studio session follows in which participants create their own pieces, incorporating techniques and ideas discussed. For the pieces currently on display, SCS participants crafted collages inspired by discussion of surrealist figures and photomontages. The in-depth review and interaction encouraged members to open up about their responses to the images, and to take advantage of the medium’s unique potential. Sunnyside Community Services’ Adult Day programs’ social and therapeutic environment for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive impairment is a perfect environment for this creative and therapeutic program. “The MoMA program is a perfect fit for us,” said Elizabeth Gronke, MPS, Program Manager, Adult Day Services at SCS. “The program perfectly complements our social approach to adult day services which is designed to facilitate individual expression and communication with other people, encourage awareness, and promote a healthy and positive self-image.” Gronke added that many caregivers report that since participating in the Adult Day program, their loved one is calmer, and more willing and able to interact with family members and others in the household. The exhibition is on view through June 18 at the Museum of Modern Art’s Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, 54 West 54 Street, New York, and can be viewed free of charge.

(OPRHP) will be able to coordinate with municipalities in creating local “adopt-apark” programs. The parks must be owned by the municipalities, which will then be able to enter into agreements with volunteer organizations to provide maintenance and improvement services. OPRHP will provide technical advice and guidance to municipalities and volunteers who participate in the program will not displace any employed park workers or lead to reductions in benefits for employees. “This program, without taking away jobs from parks’ employees, will help to ensure that local parks are safe, attractive and wonderful places for New York families to enjoy the outdoors,” said Addabbo. “Volunteers may be charged with litter removal, planting flowers, developing and maintaining nature trails, cleaning up litter, repairing vandalism and otherwise improving and celebrating parks throughout New York State.” The legislation has been approved by both the Senate and Assembly, and will be sent on to the governor for his consideration.

Wood-Heights Democratic Veggie-Powered Bus Makes Club Honoree Green Stop In Queens by Rob MacKay

They came. They saw. They promoted environmental consciousness. Eleven Dartmouth College students visited the Alley Pond Environmental Center in Douglaston, Queens, on Thursday as part of a 24-state, 12,000-mile cross-country trip. The travelers, who had just begun their summer vacations, arrived in the “Big Green Bus,” a donated 1998 Greyhound that runs on waste vegetable oil and features appliances that only use solar power and a composter.

CM Van Bramer, Assembly Member Michael DenDenkker and fellow honorees Al Hagan (President of the Uniformed Fire Officers Association) and John Murphy (Business Manager for United Association Local 1, Plumbers of New York City). On June 15th, CM Van Bramer was honored by the Wood-Heights Democratic Club at their 9th Annual Dinner Dance with a Proclamation from the New York State Assembly for his community service and hard work while serving in the New York City Council for over two and a half years.

The students checked out APEC’s nature trails and gave tours of the bus to a group of roughly 40 interested individuals, emphasizing the importance of grass-roots environmental initiatives. But they were also on hand to fill up their tank with more than 160 gallons of waste vegetable oil donated from Queens entities such as the New York Mets, the Courtyard Marriott JFK Hotel and El Ay Si Restaurant. (New Jersey-based American ByProducts Recyclers collected the used cooking oil and recycled it for use as biodiesel.) To note the occasion, Queens Borough President Helen M. Marshall and City Council Member Ruben Wills presented proclamations to the bus riders and APEC. The borough president even declared June 14, 2012, which is also National Flag Day, as “Alley Pond Environmental Center’s Big Green Bus Day” in Queens. After the festivities, the bus went out to Long Island before heading to Hershey, Pennsylvania, on the way to the West Coast.

Woodside Mobile Office

CM Van Bramer and officials of the Child Center of New York. On June 16th, CM Bramer held his 26th District Mobile Office at the Child Center of New York in Woodside. At the Council Member ’s third Mobile Office, local residents were able to have their questions and concerns heard by Van Bramer and members of his staff. Since taking office in 2010, CM Van Bramer has made accessibility his priority. By getting out in to the community, Van Bramer believes constituents who do not have the opportunity to visit his district office during the work week can have their concerns heard at their convenience.

Woodside Pool Makes Splash During International World Record Attempt by Rob MacKay

The St. Sebastian Parish Center’s swimming pool entered the history books last Thursday. As part of an international event called “The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson,” Big Six Towers resident Andrew Michael Jackson gave a 45-minute lesson to 36 locals, most of whom then bobbed, floated and kicked their way around the Woodside pool. They were certainly not alone. Starting at 11 a.m. in their respective time zones, waterparks, pools and other aquatic facilities everywhere from Asia to Africa to Europe hosted local lessons to break the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest swimming lesson. It is estimated that more than 10,000 individuals of all ages participated, although it is still unclear if a new record was made. Jackson, an American Red Cross-trained instructor with literally a lifetime of experience at the St. Sebastian pool, noted that research reveals that if a child doesn’t learn to swim by the third grade, he/she likely never will. Plus, drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death among children ages one to 14. “Swimming lessons save lives,” he told the Woodside Herald. Particularly passionate about his profession, Jackson teaches everybody from autistic children to frustrated adults with heart-warming results. He joked that last Thursday’s event was extremely emotional. “There wasn’t a dry eye in the pool afterward,” he said.

Safety For Fun In The Sun Pet Summer Safety and Heat Wave Tips The official start to the summer is upon us and this “fun in the sun” season also happens to bring with it some hazards – especially for our pets. To make sure your pet’s summer season is as fun and safe as possible, read these important Pet Summer Safety Tips: Pet Summer Safety and Heat Wave Tips -Never leave your pet in a car! Parking in the shade and leaving the windows open is not an option. In a hot car, your pet’s temperature can rise rapidly. It only takes minutes to reach dangerous levels leading to heatstroke and even death. -Always make sure your pet has cool, clean water available. Dogs, and even cats, drink more on hot days, and water warms up quickly. -Do not force your dog into the water if he/she is frightened. Some dogs do not like to swim. If your dog likes to swim, do not leave him/her unattended. Bathe your dog afterwards to remove all sand, mud, and chlorine. Also, be sure all pool chemicals are stored safely out of reach. -Do not allow your dog to hang out of the window of a moving car. Objects such as rocks or tree limbs could seriously injure your pet, or he/she might fall or jump out. -Do not allow your animals to ride in the back of a pick-up truck. They could be thrown out, or they may jump out. -Take your pets inside if there is the possibility of a thunderstorm. Loud thunder may frighten them, or lightening could strike them. -Do not walk your dog near fireworks. Besides the obvious danger, the loud noise can be very scary. -Have your dog checked for heartworm, and administer a heartworm preventative. -Check your pet daily for fleas and ricks. Talk to a veterinarian about preventing these insects from infesting your pet. -If your pet likes to relax in the shade of a yard or deck, watch out for yellow jackets, bees, toads, and snakes. Bite or sting symptoms are usually swelling of the face or affected areas. Once stunk or bitten, the pet’s skin may start to look wrinkly or bumpy. This is a first indicator and, if not treated by a veterinarian, could result in death due to toxins taking over and shutting down the animal’s body or causing air way swelling and suffocation. -Know the signs of heat stress. In these warm summer months it is best to be aware of the signs of heat stress by exposure to extreme temperatures. Check the animal for signs of heavy panting, glazed eyes, a rapid heartbeat, restlessness, excessive thirst, lethargy, fever, dizziness, lack of coordination, profuse salivation, vomiting, a deep red or purple tongue, and unconsciousness. If Your Pet Is Overheating Move your pet into the shade or an airconditioned area. Apply ice packs or cold towels to your pet’s head, neck and chest or immerse him in cool (not cold) water. Let your pet drink small amounts of cool water or lick ice cubes. Take your pet directly to a veterinarian.

Consider These Financial Moves When You Relocate Almost everyone would agree: Moving is a hassle. In addition to selling your current home and finding a new one, you may need to deal with a new school for your kids, a new doctor, a new dentist — the list goes on and on. But you’ll also need to consider the financial aspects of your move — specifically, your investments, insurance, taxes and even your estate plans. How can you help make sure that your move doesn’t slow your progress toward your financial goals? Consider the following relocation “checklist”: Open new bank accounts, and set up automatic transfers. If your move requires you to change banks, open your new accounts as soon as possible. And if you had your previous bank automatically move money each month from a checking or savings account into an investment, set up a similar arrangement at your new bank. Decide what to do with your employer-sponsored retirement plan. If you are leaving your job, you’ll need to make some decisions about your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan. For example, you might have the option of leaving your money in your former employer’s plan, or you may be able to roll

the money over to a new employer’s plan. Alternatively, you could decide to transfer the assets into an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Your financial advisor can help you make the choice that’s right for your situation. Discuss your situation with a tax professional. You may want to meet with your tax professional to consider the benefits or liabilities of any differences in tax laws between your new location and your old one. You may also need to address any implications resulting from moving and changing jobs. Review your financial goals. Some of your goals, such as those related to housing and where you want to retire, may have changed as a result of your move. So it’s a good idea to meet with your financial advisor to review your objectives. Evaluate your monthly budget. If you followed a budget detailing your expenses and cash flow before your move, you may need to update it after you’ve settled in to your new home. If you haven’t set up a budget in the past, you’ve now got a good reason to establish one — because a well-planned budget can help you avoid dipping into your long-term investments

to pay for short-term needs. Update your insurance coverage. Make sure your vehicles, stored possessions and new residence are covered during your move. And if your health insurance is changing, be aware of what’s covered under your new policy. Review your estate plans. If your move coincides with other important life events, such as marriage, divorce or remarriage, you may need to make some moves related to your estate plans, such as ensuring you have the correct beneficiary designations on any life insurance policies and your 401(k), IRA and other investment accounts. Check with your legal advisor to determine which steps make sense for your situation. Moving may require you to adjust many aspects of your life. Reviewing the items on this checklist can help you get your financial house in order when you move into your new home.

Do those young mothers who are sitting comfortably with their children in separate seats have not any respect for the disabled or senior? Can’t they put a child on their lap?
