COMING HOME: A CASE OF ALTERED STATES by Dr. Sharon M. Cadiz

Arriving back home after an out-of-town funeral, I got out of my niece’s car at the curbside adjacent to my apartment building, only to be greeted by the sight of mounds of garbage surrounding a fire hydrant. This registered with a high intensity feeling of disgust after having spent a few days generally free of any appearance of visible trash or litter on the streets or near homes and residential areas. My senses had been somewhat cleansed of the images that are all to frequent in my neighborhood. While the sting of loss was still being felt, I experienced the sensation of perhaps a greater loss of what it feels like to have a neighborhood that reflects the best rather than the worst of what we can achieve. My next jolt came as I sat in a doctor’s waiting room with my husband where the daily news blared with reports of the brutal killing of four homeless individuals in Chinatown. What was worse is that a young school age boy was totally engrossed in the report as he sat with his mother who was on her cell phone. Again, I was stunned by the shocking realization that I was “back home.” What that meant in that moment was that I was back in a place where grinding poverty; displacement; inequity; violence; a degenerating morality and an alarming desensitization to our common humanity can produce savage cruelty, in addition to homelessness that has become commonplace. In an effort to explore the depths of the feelings produced by my homecoming, I revisited the memories that were still fresh from my time with family in Atlanta, Georgia where a portion of my growing up years were spent. In spite of remembrances of a

nation in turmoil over civil unrest, there was always room for family togetherness; laughter; good food; acts of charity and civic pride and community concern, even as hatred and fear of change persisted. While visiting one summer, I recall my great uncle and aunt being a part of a rescue effort when it was reported that a child had fallen into the Chattahoochee River. I remember standing alongside them on a bridge and being inspired by their concern and the effortless ease of their commitment to help. I heard of the activism of my cousin who, as a college student, got involved for positive change. In contrast, I recall being back in New York and being bussed to a junior high school in Queens Villlage where parents protested having me and my classmates at their school. I remember being on line in a store on Steinway Street many years ago and being asked by a woman behind me if I took her money that she apparently lost. Of course, I have had a range of wonderful and important experiences here in the city of my birth and would not chose to be anywhere else, but I would certainly like to see our city and communities reflect a greater effort to be our best and not our worst. The contrasts in my life have, at times, been sharp and glaring; however, with it all, I still believe in our innate goodness and humanity. In part, I have derived my sense of justice from injustice and my sense of decency from seeing people rise above degradation. All of this leads me to summon the energy and spirit in this moment of loss to urge us to lift ourselves up for the greater good of all, and the elevation of our human condition so that each time we arrive home, we will be glad not only for ourselves, but for all others.

SUNNYSIDE SHORTS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL by Sherry Gamlin

The 14th film festival will be an exciting and unique one this year. There will be 2 Events: First is at 1 pm- Charlie Chaplin’s 1919 silent short movie, SUNNYSIDE. This film is sure to delight young and old alike. Farm worker Charlie Chaplin loses a herd of cattle, rides a bull and takes on a city dandy who has an eye on his girlfriend. Look out for labour-saving slapstick sequences as he puts a hen in a frying pan and milks a cow directly into his coffee. Included in the afternoon series are 6 more films from around the world, the one documentary from Astoria, RUBY’S HOBBY SHOP, is about a shop that still exists today. MUM is from India, FISH from Iran, BILL AND BARBARA from the UK (you’ll laugh till you cry), A GOOD SON from Korea and a real tear jerker from Ireland, MY MOTHER HAD ONLY ONE EYE; actually, best to bring a few tissues if you’re a crier or easily amused. This afternoon event is free for folks over 65 and only $5 for those under 65. Free refreshments will be served at intermission. Doors open at 12:45. Our 7 pm series we will also feature another short called SUNNYSIDE by a Korean Sunnysider, Jihyun Shin - 100 years after Chaplin’s. Opening the program is the LGBTQ dramedy, SPRINKLES made by a New York filmmaker, Evan Margolis; and our first film ever from Estonia, THE

BUTLER DID IT (you’ve never seen anything like this hysterical film), then CONSENT: A SHORT COMEDY ABOUT A SERIOUS SUBJECT from filmmakers Rebekkah Elizabeth and Kimmy Gatewood in Los Angeles, THE STAIN from Iran, MOTHER from Spain, TANK MAN from USA, JJ SHOWMAN from France, LAST CALL from Sunnyside filmmaker, Danny Garcia, TREE HOUSE from Woodsiders, Claire Kinnen and Leslie Ann Haller and ending with SUNNYSIDE by Jihun Shin. Free refreshments at intermission and a Q & A after the show.

Tickets can be purchased online for $12 at www.sunnysideshorts or at the door for $15. Doors open at 6:45. This Sunnyside Shorts Film Festival has been going on since 2000 (and off and on again) by Sunnyside volunteers. It started as a class project by a Japanese student,

Shinichi Murota, studying at Hunter College. Shinichi had to do a project involving his community. He lived in Sunnyside while studying at Hunter and posted a sign in a local laundromat asking for volunteers to help with a film festival. Sherry Gamlin answered the call and others, like Teresa Ward, hopped on board as well. After Shinichi graduated and returned to his homeland, Sherry and Teresa picked up the baton. This year the festival received 100 films from independent filmmakers worldwide through the website www.filmfreeway.com Six Sunnysiders judged the films from April till August and the best were chosen. The first film festival started in Doughboy Park with a sheet hung between 2 trees and is now set up by Rooftop Films, a Broolyn non-profit which provides the large screen (7 x 12), superior sound system and all technical equipment.See you at the movies! Saturday, Nov. 2 at the Sunnyside Reformed Church.

On Saturday, September 21, 2019, the Flushing Meadows Corona Park Environmental Stewardship Team (through the Alliance for FMCP) held their end of summer season environmental event to improve and beautify spaces around the Park. On this day the focus was invasive plant species removal and replanting of native plants and others which will attract wildlife and especially inspect species, such as butterflies and bees, to improve pollination efforts. The work was held at

the Meadow Lake rain garden, just South of the Meadow Lake Boathouse. Targeted plants for removal were mugwort, which has grown rampant in certain areas of the park, as well as foxtails. In place of these, hibiscus, early amethyst and carex were planted. A large percentage of the volunteer group on this day was made up of members of our local BSA Scout Troop 390 who assisted with both the plant removal and ground preparation and planting of the pre-potted hibiscus plants. In their work (under direction of Park’s

Department Gardeners Carolyn and Freddie) the Scouts learned about the correct use of the various tools used in the effort, which included shovels, spades, pick axes and Collins axes, learned the appropriate way to place and plant the new plantings and got in some good old fashioned manual labor (which did not include the use of any electronic devices for several hours; and they survived!). In assisting in this effort the Scouts completed service requirements for their rank advancement and more importantly got

out and enjoyed what was a beautiful day as they learned more about the natural world around them and impacted it in a positive way. Special thanks goes out to FMCP AmeriCorps Member Taryn Immel who organized the event, carrying on the good work of his predecessor Reyna Wang.

Letters To The Editor

OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS

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

MTA Dear Editor, Project cost containment along with fast tracking procurements and contract change orders for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is sometimes is easier said than done due to other significant obstacles. This why Sunnyside, Woodside, Long Island City, Hunters Point and Astoria commuters and taxpayers have to wait longer for capital improvements that cost more. “MTA Budget Cartoon” (October 4, Woodside Herald). MTA union work rules sometimes prevent contracting out work to the private sector. Third party private contractors require MTA NYC Transit, Long Island and Metro North Rail Roads agency Force Account (their own employees) to provide both supervision and protection. when they work on or adjacent to active right of way track. There sometimes are excessive numbers of MTA supervisory or employees assigned, adding to costs. The MTA, State Department of Transportation, Thruway Authority, along with Bridge and Tunnel Authority receive billions each year from the Federal Transit and Federal Highway Administrations. “Buy America” requirements for both transit, bridge and highway projects are one of many requirements for receipt of federal funding. This impacts the MTA’s ability get the best bang for the buck, when spending $7 billion in direct federal formula grant funds, potentially several billion more in competitive discretionary, New Starts and Hurricane Sandy relief and resiliency dollars under the MTA $33 billion 2015 - 2019 and future $51 billion 2020 - 2024 Five Year Capital Programs. The MTA has its own “Arts in Transit” 1% expenditure requirement. Governor Cuomo has his own “New York

PAGE 7

Buy America Act” as well. FTA “Buy America” requirements continue to play a role in the ability of the MTA to both speed up capital projects and contain cost growth. Second is the Davis Bacon requirement of paying prevailing wages. Third is US Cargo preference requirement for private companies to use only American vessels when shipping product from abroad. Finally, prime contractors sometimes have problems finding qualified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) sub contractors with specialized skills to meet required federal and state civil rights goals. Is the FTA in a position to waive any of these requirements for transit projects? Anyone in the transit industry knows that compliance with federal Buy America rules and regulations frequently adds both time and cost to a project. Both the East Side Access to Grand Central Terminal and the Second Avenue subway are good examples of how federal requirements add to costs. You can count on one hand the number of Buy America waivers issued by FTA or Albany to transit agencies in recent years.

Sincerely, Larry Penner
