Assemblymember Michael DenDekker Wants a Penny Deposit for Cigarette Butt Recycling Program in New York State Assemblymember Michael DenDekker (D-Jackson Heights) introduced legislation in the New York State Assembly aimed at recycling cigarette butts. Known as the “Cigarette Butt Recycling and Waste Control Act” (A. 11121), this legislation would establish a statewide program for the collection and recycling of cigarette butts. “For too long, our streets, sidewalks, beaches, and public spaces have been polluted by carelesslydiscarded cigarette butts,” Assemblymember DenDekker said. “This legislation will make it financially feasible for an effective, environmentally-sensitive program for dealing with cigarette butts. In essence, this is the bottle bill for cigarettes.” The legislation tasks the commissioner of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, along with the commissioner of the New York State Department of Health, with developing and implementing the cigarette butt recycling act. Under the law’s provisions, a cigarette butt redemption center will be required in each New York State county. The bill, which contains a number of provisions, imposes a minimum 1 cent deposit on each cigarette butt, as well as establishing a public education and marketing campaign to educate individuals about the harm that discarded cigarette butts pose to the environment. “Over 176 million pounds of cigarette butts are discarded each year in the United States,” Assemblymember DenDekker said. “These butts are largely composed of acetate fibers that can take up to a decade to naturally biodegrade in a landfill. In addition, there are serious health dangers to small children who may eat discarded filters they find on the ground, and which are loaded with nicotine and other chemical compounds. In addition, many marine species die after accidentally eating filters floating in the waterways.” “It’s time to stamp out this environmental and health hazard while carefully considering that by creating a program for the collection and recycling of cigarette butts, we can create new industries and jobs in New York State, while at the same time saving millions in cleaning and disposal costs,” said DenDekker.

The NYC Department of Transportation has made some welcome initiatives in the Sunnyside area such as bicycle lanes. In another major and popular change, massively improving our safety, the DOT increased the pedestrian crossing time in the traffic signals on Queens Blvd. However, many of our traffic and pedestrian flow and safety issues remain unaddressed. We strongly ask that NYC DOT fully implement the measures detailed below. Current policies that promote automobile traffic flow in and out of Manhattan at the expense of the local community must be better balanced with our quality of life. NYC DOT might examine ways to promote neighborhood mobility such as “necking down,” not closing streets. Queens Boulevard should not be the great divide of our community. The Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce strongly recommends: Reopen closed streets such as 40th Street/Lowery, 46th Street/Bliss, but keep them “necked down” so as to keep traffic slow and pedestrians safer. The closing of our local streets restricts mobility through the neighborhood and results in congestion on adjacent streets. Allow for parking on Queens Boulevard at all times except for street cleaning to provide more parking and one fewer traffic lane. Currently, there is a no standing zone in order to allow for all vehicles to speed through as though it was a highway. Commuters use our “Park Avenue” as an expressway. Pedestrians waiting to cross every block feel unsafe as they stand inches from fast moving vehicles. Increase parking from one to two hours on Queens Blvd. to allow for a restaurant visit or shopping at multiple establishments. Reduce long-term parking to four-hour parking under the #7 line between 38th and 48th Streets to allow for greater turnover in this area that is a commercial shopping area. In further efforts to improve the neighborhood, the Chamber has already requested that New York City Planning Department permit sidewalk cafes on Queens Boulevard and Skillman Avenue. The zoning code does not allow for such cafes and the City is now re-evaluating zoning in Sunnyside and Woodside. *Ira R. Greenberg is an attorney who lives and works in the Sunnyside area.

To: All Members Event: Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce Meeting Date: Tuesday, June 8th, 12:30 PM sharp Luncheon Cost: $20.00 Where: Dazies Restaurant, 39-41 Queens Blvd., Sunnyside Our Guest speaker will be John Young from City Planning,. His topic will be rezoning of Sunnyside. The NYC Department of City Planning is undertaking a rezoning study for 130 blocks in the Sunnyside and Woodside neighborhoods. The rezoning would prevent out-of-scale development by replacing decades-old zoning with new contextual zones and firm building height limits, provide zoning incentives to encourage the provision of affordable housing, update commercial overlays to reinforce existing patterns of commercial uses, and remove zoning restrictions for small, unenclosed sidewalk cafés along Queens Boulevard. The rezoning plan is being developed at the request of and with extensive input from Community Board 2, Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer and local community groups, in response to concerns about out-of-character development in the area. 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 th 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678 1234567890123456789012345678901212345678

CONGRESSMAN CROWLEY HOSTS DOMINICAN REPUBLIC AMBASSADOR On Saturday, Congressman Joseph Crowley (D- the Bronx, Queens) held a public discussion with Roberto B. Saladin, the Dominican Republic Ambassador to the United States, and members of the community of Corona, Queens. The event, which took place at the Dominico-American Society, brought together members of one of the United States’ rapidly-growing communities to discuss issues of importance to U.S.-D.R. relations. In particular, the event focused on the needs of the Dominican and broader Latin American communities living in Queens and the Bronx, as well as the importance of maintaining strong ties

between the United States and the Dominican Republic. “We are honored to have the esteemed Ambassador of the Dominican Republican right here in Queens at the Dominico-American Society,” said Congressman Crowley. “The people of our two nations have strong family, cultural and historical ties, and by working together we can help build peace and greater understanding in the world. I’m also proud of the work we have done in Congress to keep our commitment to the Bronx and Queens – including making college more affordable and health care more accessible.” “I appreciate the commitment

Statements... New York City Comptroller John C. Liu stated the following in response to questions about the New York City Water Board’s approval of water and sewer rate increases: “The City’s water and sewer rate-payers are soaked with this double-digit rate increase of nearly 13 percent, which will be especially burdensome on small businesses and homeowners. Included in the everrising costs of the water system is a back-door tax on New Yorkers. The lion’s share of the rental payment should be returned to help defray the cost of operations and fund future capital projects.”

City Comptroller John C. Liu stated the following in response to questions about the Mayor’s decision to avert teacher layoffs. “Kids know two things today: teachers they see everyday will be back in the schools in September, and classrooms won’t be larger than they are today. That’s a good thing. “All New Yorkers should join public school parents like myself to urge Albany to act and get New York City the resources it needs. My office is committed to working with the Mayor and the UFT in the efforts to secure resources for public schools.”

JIMMY VAN BRAMER JOINS P.S. 199 STUDENTS IN A PRE-MEMORIAL DAY CLEAN UP OF THOMAS NOONAN PARK

4th grade students of P.S. 199’s Sunnyside Community Services Afterschool Program and Council Member Van Bramer join together to clean up the Thomas P. Noonan Playground in Sunnyside. When everyone rushed home to start their Memorial Day weekend, the students at P.S. 199 kicked off their holiday with brooms and garbage bags. On Friday, May 28th Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer joined the 4th grade students of P.S. 199’s Sunnyside Community Services Afterschool Program to clean up the Thomas P. Noonan Playground on Greenpoint and 47th Avenue. The lesson in community service was kicked off by an educational lecture led by P.S. 199 Principal Anthony Inzerillo about the person who the park was named after – Thomas Noonan, a heroic solider who lost his life in while serving in the Vietnam War. Over 50 students and afterschool program leaders attended the event, in which they broke up into several groups with specific cleaning goals. “What better way to celebrate Memorial Day than with a lesson about a courageous war hero paired with a community effort to clean up the park that honors him,” said Council Member Van Bramer.“The hard work and dedication of these students are a lesson to us all.”

and support for Dominican Republic shown by Congressman Crowley and the people of New York. Congressman Crowley has worked to build relations between our two countries and peoples, and I’m glad to be here today to meet with the Congressman and the community in Queens. I look forward to working together with the Congressman in the future,” said Roberto B. Saladin, the Dominican Republic Ambassador to the United States. Dr. Roberto Saladin became the Dominican Republic’s Ambassador to the United States in March 2009, presenting his credentials to President Obama in

May 2009. A respected diplomat who is fluent in Spanish, English, French and German, he has also published two books on national finance. He also produced a television show in the Dominican Republic. The Dominico-American Society is a non-profit, public service organization based in Queens that provides free services, education and support to individuals and families of all backgrounds. Among other initiatives, DAS programs include English as a second language, GED preparation and programs for children who need a positive and constructive place to go after school. Congressman

Crowley spearheaded a successful initiative to secure Congressional funds in 2008 that helped DAS create a computer lab for members of the community. The event with the Dominican Republic Ambassador is part of Crowley’s efforts to bring prominent leaders to New York’s 7th Congressional District in Queens and the Bronx. Last month, he hosted the Ambassador and former Prime Minister of Korea in the Bronx, and prior to that the Ambassadors from Ukraine, Colombia and France visited New York’s 7th Congressional District at Crowley’s request.

SENATE PASSES HISTORIC BILL TO PROTECT DOMESTIC WORKERS Law to give basic labor pro- and elderly caregivers employed Senator Diane J. Savino (Dtections to over 200,000 employees working in private homes The New York State Senate passed the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights (S2311D/Savino) making New York the first state in the nation to provide new standards of worker protections for more than 200,000 employees in an industry, which has gone unregulated for decades. This historic legislation guarantees protection from discrimination, notice of termination, paid sick days and holidays, and other basic labor protections long denied to nannies, housekeepers,

in private homes. The legislation passed 33-28. “New York has long been a leader in protecting the rights of workers. We enacted child labor laws long before the federal government did, were the first to pass labor protections for those toiling in sweatshops, and more than 75 years ago, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, a former New York State Senator, signed the National Labor Relations Act, sweeping legislation that guaranteed workers’ the right to organize, but which unfortunately excluded domestic workers,” said

Brooklyn/Staten Island). “Now we have the opportunity to again make New York a leader in progressive legislation. These basic protections, which most of us take for granted, will result in a dramatic improvement in the daily lives of workers who simply want to be treated with fairness and justice, while providing crucial services to the families that they work for. I look forward to working with Assemblyman Keith Wright, who has championed this issue for years, as well as the rest of my colleagues, in order to enact this bill into law,” added Senator Savino.

(continued from front page) challenges for six attending troops from our surrounding areas in Northern and Western Queens (Troops 106, 427, 327, 312, 96, and 65). Events included Army on the Move (a map skills and “whisper down the alley” game mixed into a relay race), The Royal Joust (not to worry, no one was harmed or impaled on any lances here!), Rescue the Maiden (a climbing wall and knot tying challenge), Dueling Catapults (using water balloons instead of mortar and pitch), Castle Siege (a pole lashing and physical fitness skills challenge), and Casualties of War (a first aid field skills contest) and The Hunter’s Eye (an archery shooting event). A breakdown of our siege ladder aside, a merry time was had by all as in the end top overall honors went to patrols from Troops 96, 427 and 312. Note our own Troop 390 squires were excluded from participating as they assisted the “Royal Judges” Csilla Denes, Mason Mannor, James Guerin, Wesley Burwell and King Eduardo, Camp-O-Ree Chief and Head Knight Sir Thomas Varga and “Paladin Pete” Ross with the running of the royal contests. In addition to these events were held the Royal Game Show (a Scouting knowledge quiz game) and the

Troop vs. Troop Tug of War (in which the King and his men placed a hard fought 3rd Place). Highlight of the week-end was the Quest for the Holy Grail which entailed the groups decoding a foreign alphabet and clues obtained at the various events which led to additional clues scattered throughout the camp grounds, translation and transference to the “silken ribbon” to lead to the final clue location and with strong scout skills the location of the “Grail” itself. Needless to say it was not found as yet to our knowledge (at least no one has come forth to claim their victory, fame and fortune) and the History Channel will not be holding any specials in regards anytime soon (The Knights of the Phoenix alone still hold its knowledge). The week-end was capped off by a rousing game of Capture the Pennant, where our very own Jester Rennie S., ably assisted by his fellow apprentices-in-arms (including master bounty hunters Cesar B., Angel O. and Steven V.) and Troop 312, ran to victory by capturing the flag of the invading army of Troop 96. The Order of the Phoenix Troop 390 would like to thank all the knights and knaves who attended the Royal Festival and Call-to-Arms over the weekend and especially would like to

acknowledge Sir Thomas Varga, the Royal Planner, who was the mastermind, preparer, and organizer extraordinaire for all that went on throughout the week-end and the months leading up to it. We await conferral of the title of Count to him in the very near future. We would also like to thank and acknowledge Victor, our official photographer during the Saturday contests. Boy Scout Troop 390 invites all boys ages 10 to 17 years old to come join and participate in our future feudal festivities and general frivolity. Troop 390 meets Friday nights from 7:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. in the Great Hall (the auditorium) of St. Teresa’s RC Church, located at 50-20 45th Street in Woodside, Queens. For more information on the Boy Scout program or how to join Troop 390 please stop by our Friday meetings or contact Scoutmaster Eduardo Avila at (646) 808-4665 for details. For those younger boys, ages 7 through 10 years old, check out our sister group, Cub Scout Pack 390 which meets in the gymnasium of St. Teresa’s church from 6:30 P.M. to 7:30 P.M. also on Friday evenings.

The proud and glorious red, white and blue - stars and stripes must be honored just as our forefathers did when our country was founded as America. June 12th is a Special Day to continue this patriotic practice. And yet, when it comes to marching 8 blocks, or riding because those legs aren’t what they used to be, or being

a spectator on Greenpoint Ave to cheer “Old Glory”, the marchers and spectators along the way get a little smaller each year. This, despite the valiant efforts of the Kiwanis Club of Sunnyside to keep this only “Salute to the Flag” parade in the borough and probably the entire city going strong for our vets, our people of all nationalities and last by not least, our country of freedom for all. U.F.C.A. HAS MADE A FIRM COMMITMENT TO JOIN IN THE FINE WORK OF THE KIWANIANS TO MAKE THIS YEAR’S PARADE GREAT AND WE SHOULD START NOW. PLEASE SPREAD THE NEWS!

ST. RAPHAEL PRE -K AND NURSERY CLASS RECEIVES A VISIT FROM DR. NELSON By Sally Renda, St. Raphael School

On Friday, May 14th, the students of Mrs. Renda’s Pre-K and Nursery class enjoyed a visit from Dr. Heidi Nelson and her favorite puppet “Joe”. They also viewed brief videos about a visit to the dentist with “Dudley the Dinosaur” and “Charlie Brown.” The children learned all about the instruments used in the dentist’s office and some procedures Dr. Nelson might use when she examines their teeth. Puppet “Joe” was the patient receiving all the dental care. He made them aware of the importance of good oral hygiene, proper nutrition and regular dental checkups. The children learned that their teeth are very important for good health and nice appearance. This is Dr. Nelson’s 9th year visiting St. Raphael’s school. She enjoys the children as much as they enjoy her. We thank Dr. Nelson for her time and patience.
