Five Women Leaders Honored

On March 14, in celebration of Women’s History Month, Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan and Dr. Gail O. Mellow, president of LaGuardia Community College, honored five women in business and public service that have made a tremendous impact in their communities. Honored were Sherilyn Jo Sabba, editor of the Woodside Herald; Victoria Schneps, publisher and chief executive officer of Schneps Communication; Carmen Villavicencio, managing director of El Diario La Prensa; Maureen Walthers, publisher and editor of the Times Newsweekly; and Sandra Wilken, founder and president of Bradford Companies. “We applaud Assemblywoman Nolan for her leadership in addressing the issues women face on a daily basis and understanding the importance of celebrating their success,” Dr. Mellow said to the guests who attended the intimate ceremony at the Col-

lege. “She is a role model and inspiration for all women and an example of the positive impact women can have on society. It is a great honor to join the assemblywoman in honoring these individuals who truly make a difference in our community.” All the women honored at the event have made major contributions in their fields. “As two women who have been in public service for many years, Gail and I recognize the deep importance of honoring women who have distinguished themselves professionally and made a positive impact on their local communities,” said Assemblywoman Nolan. “Women’s History Month provides us with the perfect opportunity to shine a light on women who have made a difference.” Ms. Sabba is the third generation owner and editor of the Woodside Herald and Sabba Printing.

Increased Sewer Capacity Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Commissioner Emily Lloyd and Department of Design and Construction (DDC) Acting Commissioner David Resnick today announced that the City is set to begin a $25 million infrastructure upgrade that will significantly increase sewer capacity and thereby better manage stormwater and reduce flooding in the Elmhurst, Maspeth and Middle Village neighborhoods of Queens. The existing sewers located under Calamus Avenue and 69th Street serve as major conduits in the areas drainage network and both will receive significant capacity upgrades to ensure the proper drainage of stormwater from the streets and to help eliminate sewer backups. While the roadway is opened to add the sewer capacity, the City will also replace the area’s water mains to ensure residents and businesses continue to enjoy a reliable supply of high quality water. In early April, contractors will establish a field office in the community and begin mobilizing for the project. Construction will begin later this spring and the work is expected to be completed by the fall of 2016. The project is being funded by DEP and the construction will be managed by DDC. “This is great news for the long-suffering people of Maspeth, Woodside and Elmhurst, especially to the many local residents who have endured years of damage from repeated flooding after ordinary rainstorms,” said Assemblywoman Margaret Markey. “We all look forward to the beginning of the construction process and the completion of this long-awaited improvement that will alleviate the hardships that have been caused by the current inadequate sewer system.” “I am pleased that DEP is making the necessary infrastructure investments in our communities,” said Council Member Elizabeth Crowley. “These much needed improvements will help prevent future flooding in our homes and in our streets. I would like to thank Commissioner Lloyd for expediting this project and look forward to continuing to work with her and the DEP to ensure we continue to bring our infrastructure

into the 21st Century.” “I commend this $25 million upgrade to our sewer system,” said Council Member Daniel Dromm. “Preventing over flows and providing high quality drinking water keeps New Yorkers healthy.” “This is great news for the long-suffering people of Maspeth, Woodside and Elmhurst, especially to the many local residents who have endured years of damage from repeated flooding after ordinary rainstorms,” said Assemblywoman Margaret Markey. “We all look forward to the beginning of the construction process and the completion of this long-awaited improvement that will alleviate the hardships that have been caused by the current inadequate sewer system.” “This investment is a long time coming for my constituents and I’m very pleased to not only hear of DEP’s efforts but to also hear of a projected start and finish date to this project,” said Senator Joseph P. Addabo Jr. “For years, the area’s sewers have been overwhelmed during major storms, and this is a necessary upgrade for residents. I look forward to seeing the results of this project and hope it is a solution for the area’s flooding issues.” 69th Street between Queens Boulevard and Calamus Avenue, and Calamus Avenue between 69th and 70th Streets, is currently served by two 96-inch circular sewer lines. This upgrade will add a five-foot by eight-foot (85inch equivalent) barrel sewer line to that existing capacity. Calamus Avenue between 70th and 74th Streets currently has one 96-inch circular sewer line. This project will add an additional five-foot by eight-foot barrel sewer line to that existing capacity. In addition, eight and 12-inch distribution water mains will be replaced with new ductile iron mains within the confines of the sewer work. The new water mains will improve the pressure and quality of the water while also providing a critical redundancy to the distribution system that will help to minimize disruption to consumers during future maintenance work.

She grew up with ink in her veins watching her grandfather, the late Joe Sabba, and then her father, the late Buster Sabba, run presses and conduct day-to-day business in their various offices around the Sunnyside, Woodside and Long Island City area. With the untimely passing of her father in 2009, Sherilyn left her prior professional endeavors and took control of both companies, insuring their continuity and her family’s history of dedication to promote altruistic people and organizations within the area. Ms. Schneps founded the company that produces a group of weekly community newspapers in Queens and Brooklyn. She also founded the Working Organization for Retarded Children and Adults, a not-for-profit agency operating group homes for developmentally disabled children and adults. The honoree also serves as director at NYC2012 and sits on the board of directors of the Queens Museum of Art. Ms. Walthers, the 79-year-old publisher and editor, joined the 105-year-old paper over 40 years ago. With no experience in the field, Ms. Walthers went on to become a respected investigative reporter and eventual owner of the Ridgewood Times, now known at the Times Newsweekly. Ms. Villavicencio was appointed managing editor in 2011. Before taking on her current position she was the paper’s news editor. In that capacity she served as the department leader and coordinated news coverage with editors, reporters and correspondents. Ms. Wilken has built Bradford Construction Corporation into one of the largest women-owned construction firm in New York.

She has been a strong advocate for the advancement of women, minorities and small businesses in the industry. And as a founder and president of the Women Builders Council, she has been involved in advancing the role of women in the public and private sectors of the construction and building fields. A campaign “to break the concrete ceiling” was one of the efforts she developed.

The Jewel in Your Crown: The Resume You may think you only need a resume when you want to change your job, but the truth is a resume is your best friend all year round. Here’s why: If you have a resume ready, you could network better on your own behalf. (More about the wonderful art of networking at a later time). At a party, at a college reunion, riding in an elevator, you can always connect to people in any business if you know where you’ve been and what you can

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

Progress Dear Editor, A thoughtful friend considers me ‘low tech’ – charitable but untrue. I am, actually, ‘no tech.’ I prefer cash to credit, maps to GPS and books to Kindles. People

do… with the talking points from your resume. A resume is easier to change and add to with your most recent experience, than to draw up a new one only when you want to leave a job. So brush it up at least once a year, and think of yourself as a candidate for new and potential positions. Even if you’re happy at the job you’re doing now, you may want to move up or laterally in the same company. HR will want to see

should recognize their limitations and I do. I think of ‘c-o-m-p-u-t-e-r’ as a double four-letter word that should be unprintable (Ditto for ‘i-n-t-e-r-n-e-t’). I have tried “Internet For Dummies” with little success. Am now searching for “Internet for People Who Have Been Hit On The Head With Falling Bricks.” As things progress, geometrically, I think of relocating to Amish enviorns. After all, I have mastered the telephone… Landline of course. Joan E. Olens Woodside

your most recent resume, so have one ready. The best resume shows what you’ve achieved and how you did it. Don’t think of it as a mysterious, magical thing only others can prepare for you. Start by making a list of what you love to do, and how you’ve helped people/companies with their projects and goals. More next time on how to word those achievements… Mihaela Georgescu is a Career Coach
