Sen. Chuck Schumer on Monday called on the federal Food
and Drug Administration to address the shingles vaccine shortage on Long Island, saying it is a
“perfect example” of why the
government shutdown should
end.
Appearing at a pharmacy in
Farmingdale, Schumer (D-N.Y.)
said high demand and manufacturing delays have resulted in a
nationwide shortage of Shingrix,
the new shingles vaccine, which
can prevent the painful rash and
blisters that usually infect those
over the age of 60. Newsday reported the scarcity of the twodose shot at some local pharmacies in December.
“Across Long Island, pharmacies big and small, doctors and
caregivers, are worried about a
very serious shortage of the
shingle shot vaccine,” Schumer
told reporters crammed into
Moby Drugs on Monday.
Schumer said he has gotten
the vaccine, and pronounced, “It
really works. . . . The bad news
is there is a huge shortage, and
Long Island and New York City
are feeling the pinch.”
Schumer called on the FDA to
step in, despite the partial government shutdown. He said the
FDA should declare the situation
an emergency, and intervene to
see what it can do to get the manufacturer to increase supplies.
“There might be regulatory
hurdles, there might be other
changes that might be temporarily lifted so we can get this
vaccine across the U.S. as
quickly as possible,” he said.
Schumer said the FDA is permitted under law to call some
workers back in an emergency.
“The FDA is good at putting
pressure on the manufacturer,
telling them to produce more
of this stuff, work three shifts,”
he said. “And the manufacturers work with them.
“Many people have been waiting for weeks and weeks for
clear answers. Some places say
it’s a two-week wait for vaccine,
some places say a month, some
places say more. But we know
one thing: The government shutdown makes it a lot harder to
deal with this shortage, because
Long Island is totally in the dark
knowing when the shingle shot
will arrive because the FDA, 90
percent of it, is closed.”
Farmingdale Mayor Ralph Ekstrand, a co-owner of Moby
Drugs, said he has been unable
to get the vaccine — along with
scores of his customers.
“I can’t get a shingle shot,
and I’m a pharmacist,” Ekstrand said. “We don’t have it.
My mom is 99. She can’t get her
shingle shot. The importance
of this vaccine — it can be lifesaving in the elderly.”
The FDA, like other federal
agencies, has been operating
with only essential staff since the
shutdown began Dec. 22. Budget
negotiations are at a stalemate,
with Democrats objecting to
President Donald Trump’s request for $5.6 billion to fund the
construction of a wall to boost security on the southern border.

Trump to make
prime-timepitch
for wall tonight
BY LAURA FIGUEROA HERNANDEZ
laura.figueroa@newsday.com
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump will deliver a prime-time address on
border security Tuesday night
and travel to the U.S.-Mexico
border on Thursday as part of
his latest push to persuade
Congress to approve $5.7 billion in wall funding as the partial government shutdown
stretches into its third week
over an impasse on border security funding.
“I am pleased to inform you
that I will Address the Nation
on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our
Southern Border. Tuesday
night at 9:00 P.M. Eastern,”
Trump tweeted on Monday afternoon.
CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, Fox
News and Fox Business Network all confirmed Monday
that they would carry the
speech, Trump’s first Oval Office address since taking office.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders
in a tweet announced
Trump’s trip to the border,
saying he planned “to meet
with those on the front line of
the national security and humanitarian crisis.”
Sanders had not yet said
which border state the president will visit, but a Federal
Aviation Administration advisory posted on Monday —
usually an indicator of the
president’s upcoming Air
Force One travels — announced travel restrictions
for Thursday “in the vicinity”
of McAllen, Texas.
The national address and
trip come as the president
and congressional leaders remain deadlocked over a
spending agreement to reopen nine federal agencies
and restore pay for some
800,000 federal workers currently furloughed or working
without pay.
Senate Minority Leader
Chuck Schumer and House
Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in a
joint statement issued Monday night, called on the networks to provide Democrats
airtime to respond to Trump’s
speech, saying, “If his past
statements are any indication,” the speech “will be full
of malice and misinformation.”
Sanders and Department of
Homeland Security Secretary
Kirstjen Nielsen have come
under scrutiny for implying in
recent statements that thousands of suspected terrorists
have been stopped at the
southwest border, when the
State Department has said
none have been captured trying to enter the country illegally from Mexico.
House Judiciary Chairman
Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), speaking to reporters following a
tour of a Border Patrol facility
in Alamagordo, New Mexico,
also said he was concerned
the president would mislead
the public in his speech.
“I expect the president to
lie to the American people,”
Nadler said. “Why do I expect
this? Because he has been
lying to the American people.”
The president has been
pressing lawmakers to approve
$5.7 billion in taxpayer funding
for the construction of a barrier along the U.S. southern border,
but
congressional
Democrats, who now hold control over the House of Representatives, have repeatedly
said they will not approve a
deal that pays for the construction of a wall, arguing it’s an “ineffective” and “immoral”
method to curb illegal border
crossings. Democrats instead
have offered $1.3 billion in border security funding for
drones, fencing and other surveillance technology.
Negotiations
between
Trump administration officials and congressional leaders over the weekend failed to
produce a compromise to end
the shutdown that went into
effect on Dec. 22. Vice President Mike Pence, speaking to
reporters on Monday, said
that he planned to resume

garded as a moderate voice in
the chamber, urged McConnell
to schedule a vote on measures
to immediately reopen the government.
“This isn’t a matter of one
side or the other caving in. It’s
a matter of getting to a compromise,” Collins said during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the
Press.” “That’s a sign of
strength. And it’s important
that we remember that real
lives are being affected here.
The 800,000 federal employees, dedicated public servants
who won’t get a paycheck next
Friday if this isn’t resolved very
soon.”
Long Island lawmakers Rep.
Thomas Suozzi (D-Glen Cove)
and Rep. Peter King (RSeaford) also called for swift action to end the shutdown in an
unrelated news conference in
Farmingdale on Monday.
Suozzi said it’s “patently unfair” for Trump to hold federal
workers “hostage” to obtain the
money to build a border wall.
“People are really suffering,”
Suozzi said. “You don’t always
realize it because maybe you’re
not dealing with a particular
federal agency right now. But
right now people are not able
to pay their rent . . . or pay
their mortgage payments or
pay their utility bills.”
King echoed Suozzi’s con-
cerns, arguing that Trump
should offer protection for undocumented Dreamers and for
foreigners in the Temporary
Protected Status program in exchange for funding to build a
wall on the southern border.
“I don’t think it’s right to be
holding federal employees
hostage over this,” King said. “I
was against the shutdown, but I
do believe there should be a
barrier at the border. That can
be negotiated.”

School portrayal rapped
Officials decry
report about
deported student
BY ZACHARY R. DOWDY
Emotions ran high at a
packed Huntington school
board meeting Monday at
which residents, administrators
and board members spoke out
about a New York Times article
on the role of a school resource
officer in the deportation of a
Honduras native who attended
the high school.
About 500 people crowded
into Jack Abrams STEM Magnet
Intermediate School, where the
plight of a former student named
Alex took center stage. He was
arrested in 2017 by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
after being questioned by a
school resource officer and the
school principal about alleged
gang-related actions.
But Brendan Cusack, the principal, said Monday night that the
MICHAEL OWENS
zachary.dowdy@newsday.com
Superintendent James Polansky
Dec. 27 article was a misrepresentation of him and the school.
“The story as published is
not the whole story,” he said
during the public comment portion of the meeting, drawing
sustained applause. “It is hard,
however, to read a piece and
for your students, your faculty,
your community and your family to read a piece which puts
you in a way that is exactly the
opposite of what you stand for
and believe in.”
Board member Xavier Palacios said, “What happened to
Alex is an unfortunate series of
events that resulted in unintended consequences. No one
single person is to blame here,
not the SRO and certainly not
our school principal.”
Superintendent James Polansky defended the school resource officer program that has
been in the district for 15 years.
He said that the district had been
portrayed “a place that I don’t really recognize. It’s not the school
or the people in it that I have
come to know in any way shape
or form.”
The story said a school resource officer who worked for
the police department told Alex
the blue of his shoes was the
color of MS-13. Alex said the
shoes had been a gift from his
mother, that “504” was “about
being proud of your country,” and
the devil was the school mascot.
The teen was among about a
dozen Huntington High students arrested under Operation
Matador, a program to promote
information-sharing between police departments and ICE, the
story says. According to the
story, Alex said that, after his
June 2017 arrest, an ICE agent
told him the government was detaining him because of a report
“from the school that you were a
gang member.”
The teen, who was legally
seeking asylum, was eventually
deported to his native Honduras,
the story said.
SROs collect tips and information and share it with their department, which can pass it on to
immigration agents, according
to the Times story.
Shortly after the story appeared, the district released a letter saying it was reviewing its relationship with the Suffolk
County Police Department.
Speakers at the meeting supported the idea of a more defined agreement with the department on the role of the school resource officer.
Diane Weaving, with a group
known as the Huntington School
District Community, read part of
a group statement saying the district should establish a memorandum of agreement that “must
clearly delineate the relationship
between school administrators
and SROs.”
She continued: “The SROs
should not be requested to intervene in a situation that can be
safely and appropriately handled
by the school’s code of conduct.”
Another group member, Lynn
Geisler, said there should be no
“school-to-deportation pipeline.”
Susan Widerman Blog, another group member, said: “I ask
this board and our community to
get rid of Operation Matador,
work to unite Alex with his family, close the detention centers
and treat all people of color
equally.”
No official from the Suffolk police department spoke during
the public session. But in a prior
email to Newsday, the department said it only provides a SRO
if requested by the district and
“we consider the wishes of the
districts as paramount to maintaining these relationships.” It
said the officers are one of several tools to “eradicate violent
gangs” such as MS-13.
Associated Teachers of Huntington President James Graber
praised the longtime school resource officer, Andrew Fiorillo,
saying he is “a fierce and vociferous advocate for all.”
LIRR service cuts prompt safety concerns
BY ALFONSO A. CASTILLO
The Long Island Rail Road’s
top union leader is raising safety
concerns over the LIRR’s latest
construction-related service reductions at Penn Station.
Monday was the first day of
what is expected to be a fivemonth reduction of rush-hour
LIRR service at Penn Station,
where the latest phase of Amtrak’s infrastructure renewal
project is shrinking track capacity. Although assorted LIRR issues, including a broken rail
near Bellmore, caused some
minor delays Monday, railroad
officials said, overall, trains ran
on or close to schedule throughout the morning.
There also were minor delays
Monday evening on the
Ronkonkoma and Port Jefferson
branches,
including
those
caused by a track condition in
Northport.
The LIRR is diverting or canceling several rush-hour trains
through May, and making
other changes to its schedule,

as Amtrak performs upgrades
on several tracks at the station.
Work related to the MTA’s
East Side Access project is
also causing some disruptions
for the next month.
Anthony Simon, general chairman of the Sheet Metal, Air,
Rail and Transportation Union
Division 505, which represents
about 3,000 LIRR employees,
said his workers are concerned
the change in customer patterns
at Penn and reduced capacity in
some train cars could affect cus-
tomer safety.
“This will create loading and
unloading challenges and disrupt the typical flow of riders on
and off our trains,” Simon said.
“On behalf of the workforce responsible for the safety of our
riders, we encourage our customers to exercise caution and
be aware of their surroundings
while commuting. While improvements are necessary for
the future, safety and situational
awareness should be a priority.”
In a statement, LIRR president Phillip Eng said the railroad
is in “complete agreement,” with
its labor partners. Eng said that’s
why the railroad has improved
coordination with Amtrak with
a focus on ensuring the ongoing
repairs are completed on time,
“which is critical to operations
and the safety of our customers
and our employees.”
“This increased commitment
toward cooperation has resulted
in more timely and robust communication regarding travel options, allowing our customers to
make informed decisions about
their commutes,” Eng said.

“It was a truthful application,”
Carman said.
Carman, who also serves as
Oyster Bay’s Deputy Town Supervisor, said Saladino “made a
presentation to New York Rising
at the time the application was
filed as to what he expected to receive from his flood insurance
and homeowner’s insurance.”
Carman said he could not provide a copy of the application.
On Monday, Thompson said
in a statement “The facts in the
lawsuit are accurate,” and declined further comment.
The lawsuit against Saladino
was one of more than 140 the
Housing Trust Fund filed in
2018, according to electronic
court filings. Most of those cases
— 137 — were filed in Long Island courts, with 110 in Nassau
County and 27 in Suffolk County.
In many of those cases the state
agency is seeking the return of
New York Rising grant funds
based on allegations that homeowners either failed to file all the
required paperwork or that they
received duplicate benefits from
insurance or other disaster relief
programs, the complaints show.
The Housing Trust Fund
stated in its complaint that it had
notified Saladino in June 2017
that he was ineligible for the
grant and needed to return it.
Saladino “put them on notice
that he was still doing the work
on his house and that the estimate
that they [New York Rising] had
come up with was much lower
than what it was going to cost to
do the project,” Carman said.
Carman said he did not have
estimates of the actual cost to repair the home. The grant was
supposed to pay a portion of the
approximately $114,000 project
approved by the state.
Saladino was notified in 2017
that he could appeal the program’s decision to claw back the
grant money, but he did not, according to the complaint.
Carman said Saladino didn’t
have the opportunity to appeal because the state sued in September, a month after he received his
certificate of occupancy from
Oyster Bay for work on his house.
newsday.com
A state agency has dropped a
lawsuit against Oyster Bay
Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino after he repaid almost
$16,000 of federal disaster relief
for which fund administrators
contended he was not eligible.
The Governor’s Office of
Storm Recovery “received Mr.
Saladino’s full payment on 12/26
and the lawsuit is being
dropped,” the agency’s acting general counsel, Emily Thompson,
said in an emailed statement.
A lawyer representing the
Housing Trust Fund Corp., a state
agency that administers the New
York Rising Housing Recovery
Program, filed a notice to discontinue the lawsuit on Dec. 27 in
State Supreme Court in Mineola.
The lawsuit, filed in September,
alleged Saladino failed to disclose
a homeowner’s insurance settlement for damage from superstorm Sandy to his primary residence in Massapequa. The insurance settlement resulted in his receiving duplicate benefits, making
him ineligible for a $15,803 New
York Rising grant he received in
2015, according to the complaint.
Saladino, in an emailed statement Monday, said the lawsuit
was “ridiculous and unfair.”
“I applied and qualified for
New York Rising like everyone
else. 5 years later, the program
tried to claw-back the little assistance they provided me,” Saladino
said. “ I spent a great deal of time
speaking and meeting with NY
Rising representatives to resolve
my disagreement with their valuation of damage to my property.”
Saladino’s attorney, Farmingdale-based Gregory Carman Jr.,
said Monday the supervisor had
disclosed the homeowners insurance money in his application to

FDNY DEATH DEEMED ACCIDENTAL
City, state officials
to investigate fatal
fall off Belt Parkway
BY ANTHONY M. DESTEFANO
Firefighters saluted as the body
of Steven Pollard, above, was
brought into Marine Park Funeral
Home in Brooklyn Monday.
Late Monday at Ladder Company 170 in Canarsie, Brooklyn,
bouquets of flowers and candles
were placed outside.
Three firefighters went up in
the bucket to hang black and purple bunting. More than 100 fellow firefighters in uniform
flanked the entrance to the station house. Using a flashlight,
they slowly hung the bunting
across each of the three arches
above each garage door. “Amazing Grace” played on the bagpipes as firefighters saluted.
Capt. James Quinn, of Ladder

firefighter” who was “on his way
to being a great firefighter.”
Quinn said, “We never know

The death of FDNY firefighter
Steven Pollard late Sunday after
he fell from a bridge in Brooklyn
was deemed a work accident and
is being investigated by city and
state agencies, officials said.
Pollard died from multiple
blunt impact injuries after he fell
about 52 feet through the gap between the eastbound and westbound lanes of the new Mill
Basin Bridge on the Belt Parkway, according the Office of the
City Medical Examiner.
According to FDNY officials,
Pollard, 30, who was a new firefighter, was trying to cross from the
eastbound lanes where his ladder
truck was located to the adjacent
westbound lanes to assist in a twocar accident. It was shortly after 10
p.m. when Pollard tried to cross the
open roadway gap — which is
about two to three feet wide — and
fell to the ground below, said
FDNY chief Daniel Nigro.
“It’s a terrible loss for the department, to lose a member just
at the beginning of his career like
this is devastating to us,” Nigro
said Monday at a news conference with Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Pollard is the 1,151st FDNY
member to die in the line of duty.

what we’re going to run into, but
we love this job and Steven loved
his job. Steven comes from a family of firefighters. He was bred to
be a fireman.” Officials noted
that Pollard’s father, Ray, was retired firefighter and his brother
Ray Jr., was currently a member.
“The big thing with Steve, he
was a man of few words,” said
Quinn. “He said very few things.
If we got a sentence out of him, it
was a big thing. But you know
what, he got his job done.”
At Pollard’s family home in Marine Park, Brooklyn, mourners, including fire department officials,
arrived throughout the morning
Monday. An FDNY representative
at the home said the family would
have no comment. Funeral plans
were incomplete late Monday.
Neighbor Jackie Afflitto said
Pollard lived with his mother
and father next-door. She said
the tight-knit block was devastated by Pollard’s death.
“They’re the best,” Afflitto, 33, a
nurse, said of the family. “I know
they’re a family of firefighters.
. . . It’s a hard hit for us.”
Meanwhile, FDNY and state
officials said they were investigating the accident.
“We have been notified and
will be investigating,” said Jill Aurora, a spokeswoman for the New
York State Department of Labor.
Since Pollard was a local government employee when he died, the
state agency has jurisdiction over
the case instead of the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration, officials explained.
The gap through which Pollard fell was part of the original
design plans for the $263 million
bridge, which replaced a structure dating to 1941 that was
deemed by experts to have compromised structural integrity and
higher-than-average
accident
rates. The new bridge is actually
two separate bridges handling
traffic in different directions.
Concrete barriers some 42
inches high enclose the gap and
the bridge lighting was fully operational at the time of the accident, said a city Department of
Transportation spokesman.
The new bridge spanning Mill
Basin inlet, was opened for traffic in late 2017 and its basic structure is complete. It is expected to
be fully finished later this year,
said the spokesman.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A
woman who says she was a
16-year-old sex-trafficking victim when she killed a man in
2004 was granted clemency
Monday by Tennessee’s governor and will be released from
prison later this year.
Gov. Bill Haslam granted
clemency to Cyntoia Brown,
who had been serving a life
sentence but who will be released on parole on Aug. 7 —
15 years from the date she was
first arrested.
“Cyntoia Brown committed, by
her own admission, a horrific
crime at the age of 16. Yet, impos-
ing a life sentence on a juvenile
that would require her to serve at
least 51 years before even being eligible for parole consideration is
too harsh, especially in light of the
extraordinary steps Ms. Brown
has taken to rebuild her life,”
Haslam said in his statement.
Brown, 30, will remain on parole supervision for 10 years on
the condition she does not violate any state or federal laws,
holds a job, and participates in
regular counseling sessions.
Brown’s case has attracted national attention from criminal justice reform advocates, and the attention has amped up as Haslam’s
second and final term nears an
end. He leaves office Jan. 19.

Brown granted clemency after serving 15 years
Cyntoia Brown
While law enforcement officials had opposed clemency, arguing Brown was not justified in
killing 43-year-old Johnny Allen,
celebrities including Kim Kardashian and singer Rihanna spoke
out for Brown. The governor’s office received thousands of phone
calls and emails from supporters.
Brown was convicted in 2006
of murdering Allen, a Nashville
real estate agent. Police said she
shot Allen in the back of the head
at close range with a gun she
brought to rob him after he
picked her up at a drive-in theater
in Nashville to have sex with her.
Brown’s lawyers contended
she was a sex-trafficking victim
who not only feared for her life
but also lacked the mental capability to be culpable in the slaying because she was impaired by
her mother’s alcohol use while
she was in the womb.
According to court docu-
ments, Brown ran away from her
adoptive family in Nashville in
2004 and began living with a
man known as “Cut Throat” in a
hotel, who then forced her to become a prostitute. Court documents say the man verbally, physically and sexually assaulted her.
Brown expressed thanks in a
statement released Monday by
her legal team.
“I am thankful for all the support, prayers, and encouragement
I have received. We truly serve a
God of second chances and new
beginnings. The Lord has held my
hand this whole time and I would
have never made it without him,”
Brown said. “Let today be a testament to his saving grace.”

Seeking tax breaks
Lawmakers urge

SALT deductions
BY ROBERT BRODSKY
Long Island Reps. Peter King
and Thomas Suozzi have introduced bipartisan legislation
that would retroactively restore
the full State and Local Tax deduction that was capped as part
of the GOP’s 2017 tax reform
measure.
The King-Suozzi bill, introduced Friday on the second day
of the 116th Congress, would repeal the $10,000 cap on SALT
deductions, which the two lawmakers called “unfair” to Long
Islanders who pay disproportionately higher property taxes
than other parts of the country.
“The elimination of the state
and local tax deduction is a
punch in the gut to Long Islanders,” Suozzi (D-Glen Cove)
said at a news conference Monday outside the home of Farmingdale Deputy Mayor William
Barrett. “It’s unfair to everyone
on Long Island.”

New Yorkers already get “short

Washington for every dollar
they pay in taxes — or a shortfall
of $48 billion annually. He called
the SALT cap a “disgrace” and
unfair to residents who purchased homes on Long Island expecting to utilize the deductions.
“We are subsidizing the rest
of the country,” King said.
“This deduction is one of the
few breaks that New York does
get to partially offset what we
provide other states.”
King’s 2nd District and
Suozzi’s 3rd District are among
the top 25 nationwide for state
and local tax deduction claims,
according to data from the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center, a nonpartisan think tank in
Washington, D.C.
More than 250,000 families,
or 43 percent of households in
Suozzi’s district, which covers
most of Long Island’s North
Shore and parts of Queens,
claim the state and local tax deduction at an average rate of
$18,300, staffers said. More than
207,000 households, or nearly
48 percent of residents in
King’s district, which straddles
Nassau and Suffolk counties,
claim a SALT deduction of just
over $20,000, officials said.
Both King and Suozzi voted
against the $1.5 trillion tax package, which narrowly passed the
House and Senate in December
2017. The law provides tax
breaks for corporations and
most middle-class families, but
limits deductibility of state and
local income and property
taxes to $10,000 on federal tax
returns.
On Long Island, where residents pay among the highest
property taxes in the nation,
roughly 530,000 homeowners,
or 36 percent of all tax filers in
Nassau and Suffolk, are affected by the cap. The average
SALT burden is higher than
$10,000 in 52 of 62 New York
counties.
Kyle Strober, executive director of the Association for a Better Long Island, which represents real estate developers,
said he is holding off purchasing a home with his wife because of the cap on SALT deductions.
“The loss of SALT would be
devastating to our economy
here, particularly because
strong communities are built
on homeownership,” Strober
said.
The King-Suozzi bill must
first clear a vote in the Democrat-controlled House Ways
and Means Committee before it
heads to the floor for a full
House vote.
Push for legal pot spurs driving safety fears

Sen. Todd Kaminsky (D-Long

from Oregon Assistant Attorney General Deena Ryerson
who said fatal car accidents involving a driver under the influence of drugs far outnumber those involving a drunken
driver.

side,” Ryerson said.
Echoing the point, Nassau
Assistant District Attorney
Maureen McCormick noted
that under Colorado law a person has to have 5 nanograms
of THC in their blood to be
prosecuted for driving under
the influence.
Nassau would not have been
able to prosecute Joseph Beer,
who pleaded guilty to driving
under the influence of marijuana and aggravated vehicular
homicide in the 2012 Southern
State Parkway crash that killed
four of his passengers.
Kaminsky called it a “very important and, frankly, alarming
discussion” and said lawmakers
and prosecutors should continue working together to make
sure any legalization bill considers the potential impact on
roadway safety.
“Other states have legalized
already. They’ve seen the fatalities on their roads and all the
negative consequence that
came from it,” Kaminsky said
after the meeting. “We can
learn from them and try to do
it right.”
Landon Dais, national director of Partnerships at MedMen,
a California-based cannabis
company, encouraged lawmakers to work alongside industry
leaders to achieve their goals.
“We can say, ‘OK, we’re not
going to legalize it.’ That’s not
going to stop the use of marijuana,” Dais said. “The reality is
we have this usage of marijuana. The question is how can
we make it safer?”

Hempstead Town Supervisor
Laura Gillen and local labor
leaders appealed on Monday to
the developers behind the proposed Islanders arena at Belmont Park to employ local residents in the thousands of temporary and permanent jobs that
the $1.2 billion project is expected to generate.
Some 12,000 construction
jobs and 3,000 permanent jobs
could be needed to build and
run the 19,000-seat arena and
the surrounding retail development — jobs that could be a
boon to local trade workers and
residents, Gillen said.
“We want to make sure that
Long Islanders and people who
know our communities best and
take pride in our community are
doing the work,” she said. “When

The proposal also calls for
435,000 square feet of retail
space and a 250-room hotel on
the state-owned land near Hempstead Turnpike and the Cross Island Parkway.
Public hearings on the envi-
ronmental impact will be held

Durso said striking a deal
with local labor unions would
help the massive development
effort stay on schedule and
within its budget.
“With a project labor agreement, this job will get done
faster, better,” he said.
Aracich said the project offers
the chance to attract workers
from disadvantaged communities and from Long Island’s large
veterans population.
“There’s a lot of opportunity
for everybody here,” he said.
Gillen noted that the developers behind the Nassau Hub
project promised in November
to sign a project labor agreement.
Asked whether she has spoken to the arena project’s backers directly about hiring local
labor, Gillen said she had “discussed it very briefly” with one
of the developers, but she declined to say whether they have
expressed support for the idea.

Man found dead was stabbed
Cops: 70-year-old
was target of attack
in Levittown home
BY MICHAEL O’KEEFFE
A 70-year-old man found
dead in his Levittown home Friday was the target of an attack,
Nassau police said Monday.
There was no evidence of
forced entry into the home of
homicide victim William Cahoon, Det. Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick of the Nassau County
Homicide Squad said, and police are still trying to determine
if anything had been stolen.
“We don’t believe this was
random,” Fitzpatrick said during a news conference Monday
outside Cahoon’s Shepherd
Lane house. “I won’t get into
why we believe that. We are beginning this investigation with
that in mind.”
Nassau investigators did not
realize Cahoon had been fatally
stabbed until his body was examined over the weekend by
the medical examiner, Fitzpatrick said.
Fitzpatrick said police were
not immediately able to determine that Cahoon, a retired
maintenance worker for the
Levittown school district, had
been stabbed because of conditions in his house.
HOWARD SCHNAPP
michael.okeeffe@newsday.com
Nassau police said there was no evidence of forced entry at the Levittown home, above, of victim William Cahoon, who lived alone.
“Mr. Cahoon was something
of a hoarder,” Fitzpatrick said.
“The conditions in the house
made it difficult to see things. It
wasn’t apparent right here at
the scene until he was taken to
the medical examiner’s office.”
Police said they did not know
when Nassau County Medical
Examiner Tamara Bloom’s office examined Cahoon’s body.
Bloom’s office declined to comment Monday.
Nassau police investigators,
some wearing Tyvek suits, were
in and out of Cahoon’s house for
much of Monday morning. An officer blocked off the property
with crime-scene tape shortly
after the news conference.
“There are smells, there is clutter,” Fitzpatrick said. “There are
conditions that are not conducive to good examination inside.”
Neighbors said Cahoon was a
recluse who lived alone and did
not have many visitors. “He kept
to himself,” said Maria Dounias,
Cahoon’s next-door neighbor.
Second Precinct officers
found Cahoon’s body Friday
evening after receiving a re-
quest to conduct a wellness
check from an acquaintance at
6:44 p.m. Friday. They found Cahoon’s body in one of the bedrooms, police said.
Nassau police ask anyone
with information about Cahoon’s death to call the squad
at 516-573-7788 or Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.

She already has hired clerks

FLIGHTS FROM
LI TO RALEIGH

Frontier Airlines is adding service
from
Long
Island
MacArthur Airport to RaleighDurham Airport in North Carolina, officials announced Monday.
The new flight route will
begin on April 30 and run three
times a week, officials said.
Raleigh-Durham is one of the
“top 20 cities” that the Islip
Town-owned airport has identified as likely destinations for
Long Island travelers, airport
Commissioner Shelley LaRoseArken said.
Long Islanders can already
travel there with Southwest Airlines, which in March added
one-stop
service
from
MacArthur.
Passengers have given “positive feedback” about the destination because many Long Islanders need to travel there for
business or to visit friends and
family, LaRose-Arken said.
“They’ve had success with
that route, and I guess Frontier
saw an opportunity here,”
LaRose-Arken said.
Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter said that offering “convenient travel to North Carolina’s
Research Triangle of three major
universities creates endless opportunities” for town residents
and “aligns nicely with our plans
for strategic growth” at the airport.
The Raleigh-Durham routes
are the only flights to North Carolina from MacArthur, LaRoseArken said.
“Frontier is delighted to once
again respond to the demand for
our service,” Frontier senior vice
president Daniel Shurz said in a
statement.
The low-cost carrier operates
four flights a day from the
Ronkonkoma airport. It travels
from there to seven other destinations: Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Myrtle Beach,
West Palm Beach, Fort Myers
and Tampa.
Frontier is the third airline currently operating at MacArthur,
which had 1.6 million passengers
in 2018, LaRose-Arken said.
A fourth airline, Elite Airways,
stopped operating from the airport right before the holidays,
LaRose-Arken said.
Limiting

New guidelines to narrow U.S. role
in monitoring diversity of LI police
BY NICOLE FULLER
nicole.fuller@newsday.com
Police reform advocates and
community activists are voicing
concerns over new U.S. Department of Justice guidelines governing the use of consent decrees that they say could curtail
the monitoring of Long Island
law-enforcement agencies for
alleged discrimination and civil
rights violations.
Then-Attorney General Jeff
Sessions signed off on the new
guidelines in a memo before he
was fired in November by President Donald Trump. It mandates that top officials at the Justice Department approve the
monitoring agreements instead
of the lower-level career prosecutors who have handled the
cases in the past and says the
provisions must be “narrowly
tailored” and “not be used to
achieve general policy goals.”
The memo also limits the
length of time for monitoring,
giving consent agreements
three-year expirations rather
than an undetermined amount
of time for departments to meet
the benchmarks.
Both the Nassau and Suffolk
police departments have been
under federal monitoring mandating the racial diversification
of their ranks through consent
decrees since the 1980s in response to allegations of discrimination against black, Hispanic
and female candidates. Suffolk
police and the DOJ in 2014
made an agreement in response
to complaints from advocates
over the department’s treatment of the Latino community.
With the new changes, advocates say, the DOJ is relinquish-
ing its watchdog role.
“The Nassau and Suffolk
county police departments have
a history of racially discriminatory practices and failures to address misconduct and corruption at the highest levels,” said
Kesi Foster, lead organizer for
the Brentwood-based immigrant rights advocacy group
Make the Road New York.
“With the federal government
now asleep at the wheel, it’s
more critical than ever for state
and local government to hold
police departments accountable
and ensure the protections the
Trump administration won’t
provide.”
Others don’t trust local departments probing their own.
“Where sunshine is not being
applied, there’s a lot that goes
on that we can’t see — that’s
the reason for federal intervention in these cases, to hold
these local governments accountable,” said Susan Gottehrer, director of the Nassau
County chapter of the New
York Civil Liberties Union.
The Justice Department defended the move, saying the
memo does not change the
terms of any of the existing
agreements, DOJ spokeswoman
Kelly Laco said.
“The memo lays out clear
guidelines designed to maintain
consistency throughout all of
the department’s civil litigating
divisions that will create, enter
into, and oversee consent decrees in the future with governmental entities, in order to both
enforce federal law and respect
federalism and local accountability,” Laco said in an email.
Sessions, a longtime Republican senator from Alabama and
Both the Nassau and Suffolk police departments have been under
states’ rights advocate before becoming attorney general, in the
memo raised the importance of
limiting federal overreach.
“This supervision can deprive the elected representatives of the people of the affected jurisdiction of control of
their government,” the memo
states. “Consent decrees can
also have significant ramifications for state or local budget
priorities, effectively taking
these decisions, and accountability for them, away from the
people’s elected representatives.”
Police officials in Nassau and
Suffolk declined interview requests and issued statements instead.
Honoring agreements
Suffolk County Police Commissioner Geraldine Hart said
the department is determined
to comply with the agreements
in place.
“The Department of Justice
has been a tremendous partner
in assisting us to improve our
operational efficiency and our
relationship with the community,” Hart said in the statement. “Our goal is to achieve
full compliance and ensure that
these measures are institutionalized throughout the department in order to continue to im-
prove upon the progress we
have made.”
The latest settlement agreement in Suffolk requires the department to meet benchmarks
in several areas. It followed
complaints about police treatment of Latinos after the 2008
hate-crime killing of Ecuadorian
immigrant
Marcelo
Lucero, 37, who was fatally
beaten by a group of white
youths in Patchogue. The DOJ,
in its most recent report, said
Suffolk police had made substantial progress but still fell
short in three of five critical
benchmarks.
Nassau police Commissioner
Patrick Ryder said the department has been praised by the
state Department of Human
Rights for its recruitment and
hiring practices. Ryder said the
new guidelines do not alter the
department’s current agreement with the DOJ.
“The Nassau Police Department continues a very proactive approach to reach out to
our diverse communities to ensure voluntary compliance,”
Ryder said.
Some police union officials
said the Sessions memo recognizes the need for a re-examination of the process, which has
seen departments under federal
monitoring for decades.
“Consent decrees are supposed to go in and fix the problem and leave,” said Pete Paterson, first vice president of the
Nassau Police Benevolent Association, the department’s largest
union. “I’m on the job for 33
years. I don’t remember not
being under a consent decree.”
Paterson said the department
has followed the DOJ’s direction
and seen its diversity grow.
“I believe, being a member of
this department and how Nassau
has been hiring, they’re doing everything they can to make it a fair
test for everybody and making
[the department] more inclusive,” Paterson said.
Shift to local oversight
martin.evans@newsday.com
Veterans on Long Island’s East End now have
more medical services
closer to them with an expansion of the VA clinic in
Riverhead.
The expansion increased
the number of primary care
physicians at the clinic
from two to three, added an
audiology facility for hearing exams, installed a new
physical therapy suite, and
increased
some
clinic
hours, said Dr. Cathy
Cruise, the acting director
of the Department of Veterans Affairs medical center
in Northport.
The department unveiled
the expansion Monday, although it was completed in
late summer. It boosts the
agency’s ability to treat patients with hearing loss
and physical therapy at the
clinic, which is housed in a
county building west of the
Riverhead traffic circle
near downtown.
Cruise said the expan-
sion is part of the agency’s
push to extend medical services into communities
east and west of the VA’s
main medical campus just
east of Northport. The
Northport facility is located on a narrow two-lane
road nearly 10 miles from
the Long Island Expressway, which can make it especially difficult to reach
for elderly patients with
rush-hour appointments.
Cruise said she is hopeful that the expansion will
encourage more use of the
satellite clinic by patients
like Jim King, 76, a retired
Mattituck lobsterman.
King, who earned the
right to VA services as a
1960s crew member aboard
the Navy submarine USS
Sailfish, said he never used
VA medical care before the
Riverhead clinic first began
expanding a few years ago.
“I never used the VA before, because Northport
was too far away to get to,”
said King, 76. “But I can’t
say enough good about the
service here.”

But Christy Lopez, a Georgetown University professor who
was a deputy chief of the special
litigation section of DOJ’s civil
rights division from 2010 to 2017,
said the memo ensures there will
not be any new monitoring under
the current administration and
that it will fall to local oversight
entities to protect civil rights
from police abuse.
The new three-year limit is setting up police departments for
failure, she said. “If problems are
complex enough to need a consent decree, they’re almost certainly not going to be solved in
three years,” Lopez said.
Suffolk police and the DOJ
reached the settlement agreement that was supposed to last
three years in 2014, but the monitoring has continued because the
police department has not made
all of the necessary reforms. The
DOJ chronicles Suffolk’s progress
in reports every six months.
The October progress report
marked the first time in nearly
five years of monitoring that Suffolk police have been found in
“substantial compliance” in any
of the major categories being
tracked: bias-free policing, hate
crimes and hate incidents, language assistance, allegations of
police misconduct, and community engagement.
In the areas of hate crimes,
hate incidents and allegations of
police misconduct, the department reached substantial compliance — the highest ranking. The
department is in “partial compliance” in the other categories but
the report warned there remains
“a persistent mistrust” between
the community and the police.
Suffolk police also signed a consent decree with the DOJ in 1986
after the agency filed a class-action lawsuit in 1983 charging that
the county engaged in a pattern of
discrimination. In Nassau, it filed
suit in 1977, charging the county
discriminated against black, Hispanic and female candidates. The

Grievance extension closer
Bill, if approved,
to give taxpayers
60 more days
BY CANDICE FERRETTE
candice.ferrette@newsday.com
A resolution directing Nassau County’s Assessment Review Commission to extend the
deadline to April 30 for filing
property tax grievances was approved unanimously by a
county legislative committee
Monday.
The proposal, filed by majority Republicans, would give taxpayers an extra 60 days to challenge their property assessments.
County Executive Laura Curran announced after Republi-
cans submitted their proposal
that the county Assessment
Review
Commission
had
agreed to move the deadline
to April 30, from March 1.
But Presiding Officer Richard Nicolello (R-New Hyde
Park) said Republicans would
not withdraw the legislation because Curran had reversed herself in the past.
“We don’t know that she’s
not going to change her mind,”
Nicolello said after the committee meeting. “In three weeks
they can decide that deadline is
too far. We have no faith that
they are going to abide by
April 30 — they can change it
overnight.”
Legis. Steve Rhoads (R-Wantagh) said lawmakers took Curran at her word in March when
she set a level of property assessment at 0.25, only to drop it
to 0.1 in September, causing
confusion and late tax notices.
“Doing it with legislation is
our way to guarantee that we
won’t have a repeat of that,”
Rhoads said.
Four Republicans and three
Democrats on the committee
voted in favor of the legislation.
Curran, a Democrat who
took office last January, has
faced criticism from Republicans and others in recent
weeks for her administration’s
countywide plan to reassess
more than 400,000 properties
for the 2020-21 tax year.
Administration officials said
it was unclear whether the
GOP resolution passed in committee Monday was legal. The
county attorney’s office would
issue an opinion before the full
legislature votes on the bill
Jan. 28, officials said.
In a letter to majority and minority leaders, Curran asked
for a grace period, rather than
the proposed resolution.
“The goal of my administration is to provide fair and accurate values for all property owners in Nassau County, while preserving the right to grieve” their
assessments, Curran wrote.
“Historically, a grace period
has been provided by ARC
with bipartisan support, but
never legislated,” she wrote.
“This includes last year’s extension, which was supported by
both the Majority and Minority
caucuses. I request that we continue using a grace period,
rather than the proposed Resolution.”
Republicans, who voted for
the countywide reassessment,
say constituents need more time
to understand how the county ar-
rived at the new property values
used for taxing purposes.
Tentative assessed values for
the 2020-21 tax year for every
Nassau County property have
been finalized and posted online. Property owners will receive a Notice of Tentative Assessed Value by mail before the
end of the month.
Legis. Kevan Abrahams (DFreeport), legislative minority
leader, said it was important to
have the resolution the committee approved Tuesday.
“Being that the system is
new, it warrants more time so
every single resident can understand,” Abrahams said. “It codifies the new deadline and
shows our commitment to the
taxpayers.”
The measure will require approval of the full county Legislature.
Man, 71,

Syosset firefighters rescued a
71-year-old man Sunday afternoon, pulling him from a kitchen
fire in his home inside a senior
living complex, officials said.
The man, whose name was
not released, was transported to
Nassau University Medical Center. He was conscious and alert
at the hospital, and able to speak
with fire investigators, Nassau
County Assistant Chief Fire Marshal Michael Uttaro said. His condition was not available Monday.
The cause of the fire, which
started in the kitchen of the
apartment complex on Green
Way in Woodbury, is “not suspicious” and was deemed accidental, stemming from the
stovetop, Uttaro said.
The Syosset Volunteer Fire
Department responded to the
call at 3:53 p.m. for an automatic carbon monoxide detector activation at the complex,
according to a news release.

Capt. William Sauberman, officer of Engine Company 5,
forced his way into the apartment. He, firefighter Josh Kerr,
the acting officer of Engine 584,
and ex-chief Robert Kaplan
began searching the smokefilled apartment for residents.
It was “heavy smoke” conditions floor to ceiling, said Kaplan, Ladder 5855 officer. “You had
very, very limited visibility. We
knew the apartment was on fire.”
They heard a groan coming
from the kitchen and found the
victim face down on the floor,
Sauberman said.
After a quick assessment to
see if he was still breathing, the
men carried him outside,
Sauberman said.
The victim, who was unconscious, was cared for at the
scene by Syosset Fire Department Emergency Medical Service members. He regained consciousness en route to the hos-
pital, firefighters said.
“He was probably minutes
from not making it. The apartment was so heavy from smoke,”
Kaplan said. “Moving him out
quickly was what saved him.”
It was “rewarding,” Sauberman said of the rescue. “As a
team effort, we were able to get
this person the help they
needed.”

12 CHARGES IN HIT-AND-RUN
Couple killed in
crash last month
in Mastic Beach
BY NICHOLAS SPANGLER
nicholas.spangler@newsday.com
Suffolk County District Attorney Timothy Sini unsealed a
12-count indictment on Monday,
including counts of manslaughter against a Connecticut man accused of causing the death of a
husband and wife in a crash Dec.
22 in Mastic Beach.
Poillon pleaded not guilty
Monday to all charges, said his
lawyer, Katherine Fernandez.
“This is a tragic accident and
two people are dead,” she said.
But “there are a lot of things
the prosecution needs to examine, including the credibility of
their witnesses as this case unfolds.” She added, “there’s no indication they have any evidence of intoxication.”
Patrick Poillon, 24, of Darien,
Connecticut, was driving a 2006
Ford Explorer at 68 mph on
Huguenot Drive, which has a
30-mph limit, and blew a stop
sign before hitting the 2004 Subaru Legacy containing William
Molnar, 50, and Jean Molnar, 41,
both of Mastic Beach, Sini said
in a news release from his office.
The Molnars were pronounced dead at the scene. Poillon ran away from the 10:11 p.m.
crash, Sini said, leaving his vehicle and a 22-year-old male passenger at the scene. That man
was taken to Stony Brook University Hospital to be treated, he
said.
Police arrested Poillon on
Dec. 23 on a single charge of
leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, a
felony. Monday’s indictment
contains two counts each of
manslaughter, leaving the
scene of an accident resulting
in death and tampering with
physical evidence, all felonies.
Poillon also faces charges of
reckless endangerment, assault,
reckless driving, leaving the
scene of an incident without reporting and unlicensed operation of a vehicle, which are misdemeanors.
Additionally, he was charged
with speeding and failure to
stop at a stop sign, which are
traffic infractions.
Surveillance video shows
Poillon holding a 25-ounce can
of beer while driving, Sini said.
Poillon spent much of his life
in Mastic Beach and was arrested at his father’s house
there, she said.
Poillon was arraigned Monday
before acting Suffolk County
Supreme Court Justice Fernando
Camacho in Central Islip. Bail
was set at $1 million cash or $5
million bond and his license was
suspended, Sini said.
Poillon is due back in court
on Feb. 4. If convicted, Poillon
faces up to 15 years in prison,
Sini said.
The Molnars leave behind
four children and two grandchildren, News 12 reported
Monday.

A planned mixed-use building in the heart of downtown
Copiague may get an almost 50
percent tax abatement, as the
hamlet continues its yearslong
revitalization efforts.
The owner of the single-story
masonry business at 1800 Great
Neck Rd., Darius Mroczkowski,
would demolish it to construct a
three-story building, housing a
Family Dollar on the first floor
and 12 apartments on the second
and third floors.
Three of the units would be
affordable — the minimum required by the town — and the
project would employ 15 people
during construction, making it
eligible for a tax abatement.
The building is adjacent to
the Copiague train station and
in the business center, and is
the latest development that
would make the area more
walkable for the tenants, a
major goal for the Town of
Babylon when it rezoned downtown Copiague in 2015.
If the Babylon Industrial Development Agency gives Mroczkowski the 46 percent tax
break, he would pay $881,490 in
property taxes over 15 years,
making incremental payments
until the abatement is phased
out, saving $755,416 over the
decade and a half.
Joseph Buzzell, Mroczkowski’s attorney, said, “The town
wants to see Copiague revitalized; Darius would like to see
Copiague revitalized and the economics are weak. Without the financing, the job really doesn’t
work economically.”
Mroczkowski also developed
a nearby site on Marconi Boulevard with 20 rental units, and his
third proposed development for
12 units on Oak Street is still in
the town’s approval process.
The development that has had
the largest impact on the rental
market in Copiague is the
90-unit Copiague Commons, a
$33.5 million mixed income housing complex on Railroad Avenue
that was completed in 2017.
The 1800 Great Neck Rd. parcel has town approvals in place
and has been waiting on the
IDA to offer a tax abatement.
The IDA will hold a public
hearing on the proposal at 10:30
a.m. Tuesday at 47 W. Main St.,
Babylon.
The agency will hold a regular meeting the following day at
8 a.m. at Babylon Town Hall,
200 E. Sunrise Hwy., but it’s unclear whether it will vote on
the tax abatement.

Craziest Globes moments
BY RAFER GUZMÁN
rafer.guzman@newsday.com
Here are the five craziest moments from Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony:
1. “Bohemian Rhapsody” wins best dramatic film
Really? One of the year’s most anticipated but
most disappointing movies? A biopic widely criticized for mishandling the tricky issue of sexual identity? A movie that performed decently but not phenomenally well at the box office and currently
holds a low 46 percent rating from top critics on the
review-aggregation site RottenTomatoes?
2. Rami Malek wins best dramatic actor
This was the moment the Globes ceremony
headed off the rails. Malek, who put his heart and
soul into the role of Freddie Mercury, certainly deserved an A-plus for effort, but who among us
would argue that he delivered the best performance
of the year? As Malek, 37, got up to accept his award,
you could see in his boyish face a mixture of pride,
joy and trepidation.
3. “A Star Is Born” wins its only award
After a year of breathless reviews, this echt-Hollywood romance wound up being just another flick at
the Globes. Bradley Cooper, seemingly a lock for
best actor as the troubled singer Jackson Maine —
and also a best-director nominee — went home
empty-handed. Likewise, Lady Gaga, seemingly a
shoo-in for best actress as a talented but insecure
starlet named Ally, got passed over in favor of Glenn
Close in “The Wife.”
4. Christian Bale’s acceptance speech
NEWSDAY, TUESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2019
newsday.com
While many actors thank God when they win an
award, Christian Bale credited Satan for helping
him play former vice president Dick Cheney in
“Vice,” a performance that earned him best
comedic actor. Likewise, while most actors who
play a real person often thank that real person, Bale
did the opposite. Grinning broadly, Bale heaped opprobrium upon Cheney, jokingly explaining that director Adam McKay needed an actor “who can be
absolutely charisma-free and reviled by everybody.”
5. Free flu shots for celebrities?
In one of the evening’s weaker skits, co-hosts Andy
Samberg and Sandra Oh brought out a team of
trained medical professionals to offer free flu vaccines
to anyone who asked. The gag seemed intended as a
sendup of an Oprah Winfrey-style giveaway or one of
then-Academy Awards host Ellen DeGeneres’ and,
later, in Jimmy Kimmel’s years as Oscars emcee. But it
fell exceedingly flat as various celebrities tried to look
amused rather than merely puzzled.

Spacey pleads not guilty
Actor arraigned in groping case, told to stay away from accuser
Kevin Spacey pleaded not guilty
Monday to groping an 18-year-old
busboy in 2016 in the first criminal
case brought against the disgraced
actor following a string of sexual misconduct allegations that crippled his
career, reports The Associated Press.
Spacey’s court appearance came
more than a year after former Boston TV anchor Heather Unruh accused the former “House of Cards”
star of sexually assaulting her son
in a bar on the Massachusetts resort
island of Nantucket.
Nantucket District Court Judge
Thomas Barrett ordered Spacey to
stay away from his accuser and the
man’s family. Spacey will not have
to appear at his next hearing on
March 4, but he must be available
by phone, Barrett said.
The judge also ordered Spacey’s
accuser and the man’s then-girlfriend to preserve text messages
and other data on their cellphones
from the day of the alleged assault
and six months after. Spacey’s attorney Alan Jackson told the
judge they believe the cellphones
contain information that is “likely
exculpatory” for Spacey.
The actor and his lawyers declined
to comment as they left the courthouse amid a crush of reporters.
Spacey, wearing a gray suit, navy vest
and polka dot tie, didn’t speak during
the hearing and his lawyers entered
the not-guilty plea on his behalf.
In court documents, Spacey’s
lawyers called the accusations
“patently false” and noted that prosecutors have no witnesses to the alleged groping. Spacey’s lawyers
wrote that the teen lied about his
age, “welcomed” drinks bought by
Spacey, left the bar with him to
smoke a cigarette and gave Spacey
his phone number.
“At best, this describes two people engaged in mutual and consensual flirtation, nothing more,” his
attorneys wrote.
If convicted of felony indecent assault and battery, the 59-year-old
two-time Oscar winner could face
as many as five years in prison.

Kevin Spacey leaves Nantucket District Court after being arraigned on
sexual assault charges on Monday in Nantucket, Mass.
Unruh’s son told police that he
wanted to get a picture with the former “House of Cards” star and
went over to talk to him after his
shift ended at the Club Car, a popular island bar and restaurant, according to court documents. The man
said Spacey bought him several
drinks and tried to convince him to
come home with the actor before
unzipping the man’s pants and groping him for about three minutes.
The accuser told police that he
tried to move Spacey’s hands, but
the groping continued, and he
didn’t know what to do because he
didn’t want to get in trouble for
drinking. The man said he fled
when Spacey went to the bathroom.
The AP does not typically identify people alleging sexual assault.
The civil attorney for the accuser said in a statement ahead of
the hearing that his client is “leading by example.”
“By reporting the sexual assault,
my client is a determined and encouraging voice for those victims
not yet ready to report being sexually assaulted,” said lawyer Mitchell
Garabedian, who has represented
hundreds of clergy sexual abuse
victims. Garabedian is not a part of
the criminal case against Spacey.
Media trucks lined the street be-
fore dawn, and locals on the island,
which teems with tourists in the
summer but quiets down in the winter, drove by slowly to take photos
of reporters standing in line in the
cold. When the doors opened,
more than two dozen journalists
packed the courtroom hours before
Spacey was scheduled to appear.
A judge denied Spacey’s bid to
avoid appearing in person Monday.
Spacey had argued that his presence
would “amplify the negative publicity already generated” by the case.
After the charge was announced
last month, Spacey released a video
in the voice of Frank Underwood,
his character on “House of Cards,”
in which he said, “I’m certainly not
going to pay the price for the thing I
didn’t do.” It was unclear whether
he was referring to the charge.
Spacey was ousted from the Netflix series and other productions
after he was accused of sexual assault and inappropriate behavior
by numerous people amid the
#MeToo movement.
His first accuser, actor Anthony
Rapp, said Spacey climbed on top
of him on a bed when Rapp was 14
and Spacey 26. Spacey said he did
not remember such an encounter
but apologized if the allegations
were true.

Actors’ union strikes over developmental labs
he labor union representing theatrical performers
T
is demanding that its members no longer participate in any developmental stage work with commercial
producers, putting Broadway’s pipeline of new musicals
and plays under threat, reports The Associated Press. Actors’ Equity, which represents more than 51,000 actors and stage managers nationwide, declared the strike Monday after two years of fruitless negotiations with
the producer-led Broadway League to increase minimum salaries for developmental labs and eventually share any profits with lab participants. In labs, actors
and writers test out material for shows in progress. They’ve been used to create
“The Cher Show,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “Hello, Dolly!” and “Waitress.” The
union has been making its case via social media, using the hashtag #NotALabRat.
The strike comes as Broadway finished 2018 with the highest grosses on record.

Lohan: MTV show marks ‘a new chapter’

ing curve. “With any job,” said Lohan,
who was raised in Cold Spring Harbor and Merrick, “you’re always learning as you try new and different
things. We’re always finding new
ways to attract clientele and ensure
their experience is unforgettable.”
The series features nine nightclub
veterans rooming together in a palatial home. The premiere shows them
being star-struck, becoming emotional on the job and, sometimes acting remarkably unprofessional de-
spite Lohan assuring that “I worked
with MTV to hand pick the VIP hosts
and ensure we were getting the best
of the best in the hospitality industry.”
The hosts “knew it was going to be
a reality show on MTV when they applied,” she said. “However, they had no
idea who they were going to be working for until they arrived in Mykonos.”
At one point during the show, one
hostess at a disciplinary sit-down
started to cry. “It definitely made me
question if she was cut out for the job
and able to take on this level of responsibility,” Lohan said. “I’m always
willing to give a lending ear to my
team whenever they need encouragement and support, but in this instance in particular, she let her guard
down too early. Personally, I would
never cry on my first day of the job.”
Even without the show, the club,
Lohan said, is a personal milestone for
her. The actress recalled her mother
Dina Lohan’s pride when the two saw
the beach club under construction.
“It was a special moment for the
both of us,” Lindsay Lohan said. “It
symbolized how I was able to overcome so much in my life and marked
the beginning of a new chapter.”
Ticket sales put Paramount
among top 5 clubs in world
The Paramount finished
2018 as one of the top 5 clubs
in the world, according to
trade magazine Pollstar.
The Huntington club sold
more than 178,000 tickets in
2018 for more than 170 events
— including high-profile
shows by Jericho native Madi- Huntington’s
son Beer, The Beach Boys, co- Paramount venue
median Jim Breuer and “King
of Queens” star and Stony Brook native Kevin
James — to land at No. 5 again this year on Pollstar’s list, as it did in 2017.
The Anthem in Washington, D.C., finished at No. 1
with 392,000 tickets sold, followed by House of Blues
Boston and The 9:30 Club, also in Washington.
“After seven years, the venue has proven itself to be
a top destination for the best entertainers around,”
Paramount co-owner Brian Doyle said in a statement.
“We will continue to push the envelope in 2019 as we
work to provide Long Islanders with the best music,
funniest comedians and the most memorable live
event experiences available.”
The club — which passed two milestones in
2018, selling its millionth ticket and hosting its
1,000th show since opening in 2011 — already has
60 shows on sale for 2019, including two nights
with Judas Priest and four shows with comedian
Jim Gaffigan.

house of 2019
WINDS CHANGE
Brookhaven has demolished its first vacant house
of the year.
A town demolition crew
on Wednesday tore down a
home on Montauk Highway
in Mastic Beach that officials said had been abandoned for “many years” and
had become “a dilapidated
and dangerous eyesore in
the neighborhood.”
The structure, which officials said in a news release
was on “environmentally
sensitive wetlands,” will be
cleared of debris and preserved as open space.
Brookhaven officials said
67 vacant houses were torn
down last year, including at
least one in each of the
town’s six council districts.

The village in May finished a

downtown into the village courthouse. It is also currently expand-

calling “smart growth” in the

Grasso acknowledged that
some residents are skeptical of
adding new rental housing
downtown.
“The community very much

“At the same time, we recognize the need for growth.
“The idea is to not resist

Valley Stream leaders envision a downtown filled with
new residents and thriving
local businesses and have
formed a citizens task force to
help craft a plan to revitalize
the village’s commercial core.
The 32-member group of
business owners, civic leaders
and community activists is soliciting advice from planning
experts, developers and the
mayors of Long Island communities with resurgent commercial districts before the village
applies for a $10 million state
grant conceived to help kickstart flagging downtowns. The
task force plans a draft by
spring.
Those involved in the efforts
to boost Valley Stream say the
community’s three train stations, shop-lined avenues and
proximity to New York City
make a good template for the
type of lively downtown the
grant is meant to help create.
“Downtown Valley Stream
has the bones that every other
downtown would love to have,”
said David Sabatino, a local
business owner and co-chairman of the task force.
Fleshing out those bones will
come with challenges, Sabatino
and others said.
Valley Stream Deputy Mayor
Vincent Grasso, who formed the
task force, said the village’s housing stock skews heavily toward
single-family homes, which
means there’s little room for
young professionals and retirees
looking to rent apartments
within walking distance of
stores, restaurants and transit.
Meanwhile, the local businesses on Rockaway Avenue,
the main commercial thoroughfare, have suffered as the opening of nearby Green Acres Mall
decades ago and the rise of online shopping siphoned away
customers.

Glen Cove officials are preparing to hire a consultant to
determine the feasibility of a
system to kill or filter out
bacteria from contaminated
water that flows into Long
Island Sound at Crescent
Beach.
The beach has been closed
for swimming for nearly a
decade because of consistently
high bacteria counts.
“We’ve been trying to find
the source for this for years,
and it’s very difficult,” Mayor
Timothy Tenke said, referring
to what is causing the contamination. “One of the ways we
can open up Crescent Beach is
to treat the water before it
reaches the Sound. It doesn’t
cure the problem of the contamination, but it certainly will
allow clean water to be discharged into Long Island
Sound.”
The city is planning to
issue a request for proposals
from consultants within the
next three weeks, city
spokeswoman Lisa Travatello
said.
The City Council on
Dec. 27 approved an intermunicipal agreement with Nassau County in which the
county will pay up to
$200,000 for a consultant to
work with the city to review
possible treatment systems
and then design one. The
county Legislature authorized
the funding in July.
Brian Schneider, deputy
county executive for public
works, told Newsday in August that among the options
that may be examined are a
filter that “shreds the bacteria” as water passes through
it; using ultraviolet light to
kill bacteria; and creating a
retention pond in which
bacteria can die off before
water is released into the
Sound.

The Smithtown Town Council is
scheduled to vote Tuesday on appointing former builders’ lobbyist Desmond
M. Ryan to the planning board, along
with terminating planning board attorney Paul Sabatino.
Commercial development is central
to Supervisor Edward Wehrheim’s
agenda, and he said in an interview Monday that the prospective new officials
“understand the vision . . . That’s our
main thrust, to be able to continue to
keep residential taxes stable, create jobs
and increase the economy of Smithtown.”
Ryan formerly worked as executive director of Association for a Better Long
Island, a developers group whose members have $15 billion in investments and
has decades of experience with zoning
issues and building projects. He currently serves on the Long Island Regional Development Council. He would
serve a five-year term, replacing Conrad
Chayes, whose term expired.
Sabatino, a former Suffolk County
chief deputy county executive and legislature counsel, clashed with town board
members last year when he helped
draft a planning board resolution to
block Foxwood Estates, a small subdivision near the Smithtown Landing Country Club. That subdivision eventually
won planning board approval, but the
developer sued the town in New York
State Supreme Court over its handling
of the matter. A judge dismissed the
2017 suit while noting he was “troubled” by the planning board’s 2017
tabling of the application, which he said
had wrongfully denied the developer judicial intervention.
Wehrheim said last year he was disturbed by that suit and another against
the planning board. Also, he said, “the
town attorney has informed me we are
receiving bills from Mr. Sabatino that
are excessive.”
Sabatino said he earned $135 per hour
for his work for the town over 2017-2018.
Town officials said Sabatino was paid
about $17,750 in 2018, and about $15,760
in 2017. The amount budgeted for his position was $7,500.
The town board in July unanimously
approved a law removing the planning
board’s right to appoint its own attorney
and giving that authority to itself.

kind of independent review of land use

Town Council votes today on replacing
planning board attorney Paul Sabatino.
decisions,” Sabatino said in an interview
last week, referring to the town council.
John J. Toomey Jr., a former assistant
town attorney and Suffolk County Court
judge, is slated to replace Sabatino.
Toomey is a decorated military veteran who presided over the Suffolk
County Veterans Court. He also is a
longtime Republican Party figure who
has administered oaths of office to a
number of Smithtown officials. He has
represented developers with applications before town boards in his private
practice, Wehrheim said. Councilman
Thomas McCarthy said Toomey had
also represented him in private business, but not since approximately 2002.
Toomey would be paid $20,000 a year.
Both Toomey and Ryan would recuse
themselves from any town business involving former clients, Wehrheim said.
At least one civic activist reacted skeptically to the prospective appointments.
Bob Souto, a trustee of the civic group
We Are Nesconset, said Ryan’s experience “doesn’t bode well in certain instances where the community is going
to be maybe not so happy” with some
commercial development near residential areas.
Former town planner Frank Derubeis,
who knows both prospective appointees, said the planning board might
be “a little more pro-business. But Smithtown is not a town that’s gone very
loose with regard to zoning. It’s usually
been tight with it.”
HEALTH & SCIENCE

Fewer than ever smoke, but benefits are unequal
Los Angeles Times (TNS)
Cigarette smoking is at an alltime low in the United States, but
the benefits of this public health
achievement are not being
shared equally by all Americans.
A new analysis of health data
from the nation’s 500 largest
cities shows that the people who
live in neighborhoods with the
highest smoking rates are more
likely to be poor, less likely to be
white, and more likely to have
chronic heart or lung diseases.
“The degree of inequity was
surprising,” said study leader
Eric Leas, who conducted the
work as a postdoctoral scholar
at the Stanford Prevention Research Center.
Life expectancy in the United
States is at least 10 years lower
for smokers than for nonsmokers, and smoking is responsible
for about 20 percent of deaths
each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The U.S. surgeon general says
smoking can be blamed for
more than 80 percent of deaths
due to lung cancer (the deadliest
type of cancer in the United
States) and about 80 percent of
deaths due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (the
country’s third-leading cause of
death). Smokers also face increased risks of heart disease,
stroke, asthma, diabetes, and at
least 10 other kinds of cancer.
In 1965, when the National
Center for Health Statistics
began tracking tobacco use, 42
percent of U.S. adults were cigarette smokers. By 2017, that figure had declined to 14 percent.
Leas and his former colleagues from Stanford wondered how the resulting health
gains were spread across the
country. To find out, they examined data from the 500 Cities
Project, a joint effort of the CDC
and the Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation that gauges health
risk factors in 27,204 census
tracts in America’s largest cities.
They found that smoking was
more popular in some census
tracts than others — and that
there were certain things these
census tracts had in common.
People living in neighborhoods
with higher smoking rates tended
to make less money than people
in neighborhoods with lower
smoking rates. The researchers
calculated that a $10,000 increase
in a census tract’s median household income corresponded with
a 0.92 percentage-point decrease
in smoking prevalence.
Neighborhoods with higher
smoking rates were more likely
to be populated by African Americans and Latinos, while the reverse was true for non-Hispanic
whites. A 10 percentage-point increase in a census tract’s white
population corresponded with a
0.84 percentage-point decrease
in the prevalence of smoking.
The Stanford team also found
that the popularity of smoking
and the prevalence of diseases
rose or fell in tandem. For instance, if the smoking rate in a
neighborhood were to increase
from 10.7 percent (the 10th percentile of all census tracts) to
27.6 percent (the 90th per-
centile), the prevalence of coronary heart disease would rise by
27 percent, asthma would jump
by 39 percent, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
would climb by 120 percent.
In each of the 500 cities, the researchers quantified the degree
of “smoking prevalence inequity” on a scale from 0 (perfect equity) to 1 (complete inequity). All cities in the study
had a score of at least 0.03, representing at least a small degree of
inequity, and the bulk of them
had scores between 0.1 and 0.15.
The most inequitable city in
America was Washington, D.C.,
with a score of 0.23. Leas said he
was amazed by the differences in
the nation’s capital: The smoking prevalence in some neighborhoods was 8.8 percent, while in
others it reached 49.1 percent.
“A rate of 49.1 percent is higher
even than where the national average was in the 1960s, highlighting how far many neighborhoods need to come to catch up
to the national trends,” said Leas,
who is now an assistant adjunct
professor at the UC San Diego
School of Medicine.
Health experts make a distinction between inequalities and inequities. Some amount of health
inequality may be unavoidable,
such as when a genetic variant
makes a person more vulnerable
to a particular disease. When an
unequal outcome could have
been avoided, you have inequity.
The researchers proposed several policy measures to combat
the inequities they documented.
People in neighborhoods with
higher smoking rates were more
likely to encounter stores selling
tobacco products. Rules aimed at
“limiting the quantity, location,
and type of tobacco retailers” in
an area might lead to reductions
in smoking there, they wrote.
Raising taxes on cigarettes
would probably reduce demand,
they added. Smoking cessation
programs would do more good if
they were “targeted to resourcepoor communities,” they wrote.
The study was published Monday by the journal JAMA Internal Medicine.

T
hey’re baaack.
Or, more appropriately on many roads in many neighborhoods,
they’re still here.
Potholes.
Add your own expletive.
Potholes are the bane of a Long Island driver’s life. They’re rim-rattling,
tire-tearing, bone-jarring — and they’re seemingly everywhere, as outlined in a Newsday story Sunday. And we haven’t even descended yet into
the teeth of winter, when the pothole cycle — rain, sleet or snow gets into
a crack in the pavement, then freezes and expands, making the crack bigger — is at its demonically destructive worst.
Year in and year out, potholes are one of the top subjects of angry
complaints to municipal call centers and email tip lines — and to Newsday’s editorial board.
One recent letter writer termed potholes “a fact of life on Long Island roads.” Another called our streets “a war zone.” A third compared
driving on Long Island with being a bull rider who is “pummeled, jostled, hurtled, a bone crushing experience.” Chances are each would
agree with another writer who
summed up the “disrepair of our
roads” as “an absolute disgrace.”
The solution is simple: Fix the
potholes.
It’s one of the basic functions of
government. But too many municipalities come up short in fulfilling
it. Many potholes linger too long.
Our roads are subject to too many
different jurisdictions — state,
county, town, village. Motorists reporting potholes to one municipality often are redirected to another
level of government that oversees

the road, an ordeal that can be
every bit as exasperating as driving into one of these car-eating caverns. The pothole problem also is
symptomatic of the nation’s larger infrastructure issue. Some 70 percent
of Long Island roads are in poor or mediocre condition, according to one
estimate, thanks partly to increasing traffic over the last 30 years.
Why not approach the pothole problem as the regional issue it is? As
more governments look to share services and sign inter-municipal agreements, it’s time our governments joined forces in one big road crew that
wouldn’t have to worry about who has jurisdiction. They could share best
practices — whether that’s an innovative way to fill potholes quickly, a
method of making repairs that really last, a good system for judging
whether to fill a hole or do a more expensive but longer-lasting resurfacing, or one big interactive map that pinpoints the location of potholes to
help set priorities. North Hempstead Town has a smart new law that bans
utilities from opening up newly paved roads, increasing their life by avoiding the seams in which potholes form.
There’s a lot at stake for motorists, beyond reducing exasperation. A
solid pothole hit can easily cost a driver $600 for repairs. If 10 drivers hit
the same pothole, that’s $6,000. Filling the hole is cheaper. But the longer
it takes to fix, the more expensive the repair job. If more money is needed,
it should be appropriated.
We’d like to think that potholes don’t have to be as persistent a problem as they have been. Our governments need to step up their game.
Because the problem will only get worse.
Winter is coming.

A Politico magazine report examining the question of whether
the candidacy of Sen. Elizabeth
Warren (D-Mass.) may be hampered by the perception that she
is cold, aloof and “unlikable” has
elicited cries of outrage on Twitter and in other media.
“Unlikable,” critics argue, is a
covertly sexist term applied almost exclusively to women in
politics and used as a pejorative
against ambitious women who
don’t conform to feminine stereotypes.
But is the charge of media
sexism a valid complaint or an
attempt to shield female candidates from robust criticism —
and will playing the gender
card hurt more than it helps?
First of all, the Politico article was certainly not an attack

NEWSDAY, TUESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2019
For Newsday’s editorial
board to say border security
can be achieved without a wall
is out of touch [“Beyond the
wall, find real answers,” Editorial, Jan. 2]. If you live on Long
Island, you are aware of the opioid epidemic in our communities and the many lives lost.
The Drug Enforcement Administration says most illegal drugs
from Mexico are smuggled undetected through legal ports of
entry. We need the wall so that
the same is true of some prominent men, such as Sen. Chuck
Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen.
Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
Beinart cites a 2010 study by
Yale scholars Victoria Brescoll
and Tyler Okimoto as evidence
of the misogyny faced by ambitious women in American politics. Participants read a short article about one of two fictional
state senators, one male and the
other female; for half of them,
the article had added text describing the senator as ambitious
and power-seeking. According
to Beinart, the ambitious male
senator was viewed more favorably while his female counterpart elicited “moral outrage.”
But this conclusion is based
on a misleading summary of the
study. Without explicit mentions
of ambition, the female senator
is viewed somewhat more positively than the male senator;
with such mentions, she is
viewed somewhat less positively.
But the score for “moral outrage”
— contempt, anger, or disgust —
was very low for both (around
1.5 on a 7-point scale, or between
“none” and “very little”). Even if
a survey of 310 Americans in
2010 is relevant today, it tells us
very little. Meanwhile, research
on real-life politicians by scholars such as Jennifer Lawless of
American University and Deborah Jordan Brooks of Dartmouth
College shows that voters on the
whole are not biased against
women.
What can put female candidates at a disadvantage is a situation in which their flaws and
problems can’t be discussed honestly for fear of seeming sexist.
So knock it off, outrage brigades.

President Donald Trump
says he will keep the shutdown
going “as long as it takes” to get
the money for his wall because
it is necessary for border protection. He overlooks the fact
that the Mexican border is a
tiny part of area where terrorists, criminals, and drugs can
come into this country. Now airport security workers are calling in sick.
He has no empathy for anyone
else’s problems and cares about
only his private political and business interests. Witness his lack
of concern for hundreds of children separated from parents and
living in tent cities in Texas and
Florida. When will his supporters get tired of his showboating

Second, the notion that the Uword is reserved for female

It will yield such headlines as
“Mitt Romney, the Unlikable

works with “Al Gore” and “John

that the label tends to stick to
politicians who are seen as too intellectual and/or too patrician.

may arise for both sexes, it disproportionately hurts women

more important for them. But

Calls to open firehouse
fueled by HQ2 plan
lisa.colangelo@amny.com
Amazon’s HQ2 plans for Long
Island City are providing new fuel
in the battle to reopen a shuttered
FDNY engine company.
Lawmakers, fire union brass
and civic leaders stood outside
the former home of Engine 261 in
the Dutch Kills neighborhood on
Wednesday to say the growing
section of western Queens needs
increased fire services.
“With thousands of new jobs
and traffic coming to the area,
what does that mean for firefighters?” asked Gerard Fitzgerald,
president of the Uniformed Firefighters Association of Greater
New York. “The greater distance
trucks have to travel in heavy traffic has already meant an increase
in response time, putting lives at
stake. Every second is critical.”
Engine 261 was closed in 2003
as part of a larger citywide consolidation by the administration of former Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Firefighters and trucks were
sent to other engine companies. A
ladder company remained in the
building on 29th Street.
Long Island City has boomed
since then. Rezoning has allowed
residential towers to grow in an
area once dominated by manufacturing and industrial facilities. Several speakers also mentioned last
week’s raging fire in nearby Sunnyside, which destroyed several
businesses and injured both civilians and firefighters.
“It is never a good idea to close
a firehouse,” said City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer. “Closing
this engine company in 2003 was
shortsighted.”
U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney,
who organized the news conference, said she spoke with Mayor
Bill de Blasio last Tuesday and
he pledged to look into the issue.
She said part of the campaign to
get the firehouse reopened includes a petition drive and legislative hearings.
“Keeping New Yorkers safe is
the mayor’s top priority,” said
Jaclyn Rothenberg, a de Blasio
spokeswoman. “We’re always evaluating resources, demands, and response times, and with an eye toward the future we will continue
to do that in Long Island City.”
City
Councilman
Joseph
Borelli, chairman of the Committee on Fire and Emergency Management, said he plans to hold a
hearing this month focused on Engine 261.
“I’m sure we can find a few million dollars to make sure the people of Long Island City, the people
who are going to have to deal with
Amazon and whatever comes
with development . . . are adequately protected,” he said.

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. — The

weekend while workers use explosive charges to demolish the
remains of the old Tappan Zee
Bridge.

Bridge will be closed between
The replacement Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge will be closed for about 45 minutes on Saturday morning.
The MTA faces potentially
significant obstacles before it
can definitively avoid the
dreaded L train shutdown.
Executives at the transit authority and Gov. Andrew
Cuomo’s outside engineers on
Monday defended the lastminute proposal to drop the L
train shutdown, saying that the
tunnel will be fortified for the
long term through the hastily
prepared strategy to rehabilitate
it on nights and weekends —
and not through an originally
planned 15-month service outage through Manhattan.
“What we don’t want to do is
shut this tunnel on nights and
weekends and then, in a few
months’ time after it’s completed,
go back in and do track work,”
MTA Transit President Andy Byford said during a meeting at
MTA headquarters. “We’re not
going to do that.”
The MTA hopes to begin repairs to the tunnel as it had all
along on Saturday, April 27. At
that point, one of the tunnel’s two
tracks would close, reducing service to four trains per hour during overnights and weekends.
But the obstacles ahead could
potentially squash or delay the
new proposal.
To start, the MTA must renegotiate its roughly $500 million contract with Judlau and TC Electric
to rehabilitate the tunnel. The authority’s board must approve that
revised contract as well as the
general idea of abandoning the
current 15-month shutdown.
The MTA is also still unsure
if it would need to go through
the federal government’s approval process.
Veronique “Ronnie” Hakim,
the managing director at the
MTA, which is discussing the
new proposal with the Federal
Transit Administration, said
those talks are being hampered by the U.S. government

Rally for rights
Cuomo calls for quick passage of 2 bills to protect reproductive choice
BY IVAN PEREIRA

choice at Barnard College Monday.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo and
Hillary Clinton on Monday
called on the New York State
Legislature to quickly pass
long-stalled bills that would
bolster reproductive rights —
and the governor said he
would push for a constitutional amendment that would
protect a woman’s right to
choose.
Clinton said the Reproductive Health Act and the Contraceptive Care Act are
needed because of the changing stance on abortion and
contraception rights in Washington, especially with a majority conservative Supreme
Court. Both bills, which
passed in the Assembly but
failed to get enough Senate
votes during the last session,
would codify many rights
granted to women by Roe v.
Wade regardless of changes in
federal law.
Clinton, appearing with the
governor at a rally at
Barnard College in Manhattan, said the Senate and Assembly, which are now both
controlled by Democrats,
should waste no time in approving the legislative packages.
“Together, New York can
build on the progress that
has been made in reducing
rates for unintended and
teen pregnancies and ensure everyone has the opportunity to choose a
method of birth control
based on what’s best for
them, not just what’s least
expensive,” she said.
Cuomo said he will go
one step further and push
for a constitutional amendment that would protect a
woman’s right to an abortion. Such a change would
require approval from both
Albany houses and from the
voters through a referendum.
“We’ll able to say we’ve
protected women’s rights in
a way no one has been able
to do before,” Cuomo said.
A representative for senate
Republicans didn’t respond
to a request for comment.
New York’s abortion laws
were written in 1970, three
years before Roe v. Wade,
and have not been updated
to include some of the provisions granted in that
Supreme Court decision.
The Trump Administration
also has issued several policies restricting reproductive
rights, including giving organizations exemptions from
covering contraception in
their health insurance plans.
The Reproductive Health
Act would repeal the state
law that criminalizes abortions and allow more health
professionals to perform
abortions. The bill would
also allow abortions in cases
where “there is an absence of
fetal viability, or the abortion
is necessary to protect the patient’s life or health.”

shutdown.
In the meantime, Byford is trying to swiftly carry out what he
refers to as a “due diligence exercise” to tackle outstanding safety,
operational and logistical questions related to the new proposal,
including what alternative service would be necessary to keep
commuters moving.
“I’m trying to get that done
by [this month’s board meetings], but if it isn’t done I’m not
going to rush it,” Byford said.
“It’s got to be done properly.”
The transit chief sat with members of MTA leadership on Monday for a round of one-on-one interviews with reporters after the
governor’s surprise announcement last week, when he definitively declared that the L train
shutdown wouldn’t happen.
Under the new plan, Byford
said about 90 percent of the
originally planned repairs to the
tunnel, which was badly damaged during superstorm Sandy
in 2012, would still take place —
including the replacement and
repair of necessary track and
tunnel components, like rails,
pump rooms and circuit
breaker houses.
Rider advocates have pushed
for both the city and the MTA to
carry out or preserve many of the
transit improvements and alternative services planned for the shutdown, such as beefed-up bike
and pedestrian infrastructure
and the creation of a bus-only
“busway” on 14th Street.
John Raskin, executive director of the Riders Alliance, had
called into question the legitimacy of the new plan, which
hinges on the use of a Fiberglas
polymer to fortify damaged concrete bench walls in the tunnel,
a technique that has been used
on buildings and bridges but is
untested in subways.
The outside engineers from
Cornell and Columbia universities who drew up the new rehabilitation strategy had spent just
about one hour actually in the
Canarsie tunnel to assess damage. But one of them, Mary
Boyce, dean of The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and
Applied Science at Columbia,
dismissed concerns of the time
spent in the tunnel, saying that
the team had largely built off
the documentation from the
MTA and its hired consultants
on the project, WSP.
“We benefited tremendously
from that knowledge and that
background,” Boyce said.
Act would require health insurance companies to include contraceptive medications, products and services
in their policies without
“imposing any cost-sharing
requirements or other restrictions or delays.”
Cuomo said he wanted
the reproductive rights protections approved within
the first 30 days of the new
year and threatened to not
approve the state’s budget
in April if the bills aren’t
passed by then. Last week,
state Democrats reintroduced the bills and vowed
pass them by Jan. 22 — the
anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
Senate Majority Leader
Andrea
Stewart-Cousins,
who attended the rally, said
Senate
and
Assembly
Democrats are determined
to get the bills to the governor’s desk.
“We are moving forward.
Don’t stop us. Don’t try to
make us look backward,”
she said at the rally.
59 limo plates
seized after crash
ALBANY — New York State Police say they began seizing plates
from unauthorized limousines
after an October crash in upstate
New York that killed 20 people.
The Times Union of Albany reports police seized the plates of 59
vehicles after the Oct. 6 crash in
Schoharie County, west of Albany.
The seizures effectively sidelined the vehicles and came at the
request of the state transportation
and motor vehicle officials. State
officials refused to tell the newspaper which limo companies had
their license plates pulled or why
the actions weren’t taken previously.
Prosecutors allege limousine
company operator Nauman Hussain in October allowed an improperly licensed driver to operate an “unserviceable” vehicle. He
has pleaded not guilty to criminally negligent homicide.
The accident also is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board.

Cemtrex now in Queens
After sales decline
LI tech firm moves
to Long Island City
BY KEN SCHACHTER
kenneth.schachter@newsday.com
Cemtrex Inc., Long Island’s
20th largest public company
based on 2017 revenue, has
moved to Queens, according
to a government filing.
The move comes as the
provider of manufacturing services and technology products
reported a 25 percent decline
in net sales for the fiscal year
ended Sept. 30.
Cemtrex follows in a long
line of corporations that exited
Long Island for other locales,
including Arrow Electronics
Inc. and OSI Pharmaceuticals
in 2011, and Voxx International
Corp. in 2016.
Many other Long Island
companies saw their headquarters moved after being absorbed through mergers and
acquisitions, such as Grumman Corp. in 1994.
Saagar Govil, president and CEO
of Cemtrex Inc., which has left its
offices in Farmingdale.
Calls and emails to Cemtrex
president, chairman and chief
executive Saagar Govil went unreturned Friday and Monday.
The Dec. 31 filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission listed an address in Long Island City, Queens, as Cemtrex’s
“principal executive office.”
Cemtrex previously had listed
19 Engineers Lane in Farmingdale as its headquarters.
The filing said the company
would be unable to file a 10K
annual report within the prescribed time.
On Jan. 2 the company issued a news release with a
Long Island City dateline announcing financial results for
its fiscal year ended Sept. 30.
Long Island City has gained
attention after being chosen by
Seattle-based
Amazon.com
Inc. as the site of one of two
new secondary headquarters.
On Monday, a Google search
of Long Island City yielded
1.35 billion results, compared
with 62.3 million for nearby Astoria, Queens.
Cemtrex’s net sales for the
fiscal year were $89.9 million,
compared with $120.6 million
in the prior 12 months.
Cemtrex posted a net loss of
$10.9 million, or $1.06 per
share, in the latest fiscal year,
compared with net income of
$4.4 million, or 31 cents per
share, in the prior fiscal year.
The news release did not
break out fourth-quarter results.
Cemtrex’s flagship product
is its SmartDesk, a standing
desk with an integrated Windows computer that responds
to hand gestures and a 72-inch
display across three screens.
In October, Cemtrex agreed
to pay $625,000 and reform its
corporate governance policies
to settle several securities
class-action lawsuits filed in
federal and state courts.
One of those cases, filed in
U.S. District Court in May,
charged that Govil and other
executives skirted federal reporting rules governing stock
transactions.
In March, Cemtrex took a 46
percent stake in Vicon Industries Inc., a Hauppauge-based
maker of video surveillance
hardware and software.
Following that transaction,
Govil became Vicon’s chairman and CEO.
Like Cemtrex, Vicon made a
government filing on Dec. 31
saying it would be filing its 10k
annual report of financial results after the deadline.
Shares of Cemtrex rose 1.8
percent Monday to close at 74
cents. Twelve months ago the
stock was trading at $2.70.
Shares of Vicon were unchanged at 6 cents. Twelve
months ago that stock was trading at 41 cents.
Chembio gets OK to sell new test in Europe
BY JAMES T. MADORE
james.madore@newsday.com
Chembio Diagnostics Inc.
announced Monday that a new
rapid blood test, developed
with pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca, has been certified
as meeting European health
and safety standards.
The test, which detects a
biomarker, or substance that
shows a disease or infection in
the body, has received the CE
mark, which is necessary to
sell products in European
Union member countries.
Chembio and AstraZeneca
haven’t disclosed what the
biomarker is.
The CE designation, an abbreviation of Conformité Européenne, comes a year after
Chembio, a small public company in Medford, began receiving funds from AstraZeneca to
develop the point-of-care test.
AstraZeneca, with headquarters in Cambridge, England,
was to pay Chembio up to $2.9
million for the test.

other drugs.
“We are pleased to receive
the CE mark within 12 months
of announcing the collaboration with AstraZeneca,” Chembio CEO John J. Sperzel said
Monday. “We look forward to
working closely with AstraZeneca in pursuit of additional regulatory approvals.”
Chembio develops and manufactures rapid tests for HIV,
syphilis, malaria and other
tropical diseases. The tests
have been used by the World
Health Organization and others to combat recent outbreaks
of Ebola and Zika.
The company reported a loss
of $4.7 million for the nine
months ended Sept. 30, 2018,
compared with a loss of $4.4 million for the same period in 2017.
Revenues totaled $25.8 million
in the nine-month period, up
from $18 million in 2017.
Chembio recently won
$815,400 in tax breaks over 10
years from the Suffolk County
Industrial
Development
Agency to consolidate the company’s Medford and Holbrook
operations into a single building in Hauppauge. Executives
said the $3.9 million project
will automate much of the production activity.
IDA records show that Chembio now employs 223 people in
Suffolk and expects to have 201
in three years. The company
also has a factory in Malaysia
and offices in Germany.
Chembio shares rose more
than 8 percent Monday to

DEAR GRINCHED: It is legal.
Companies don’t have to

they do, they can determine
the terms, absent a union or

But your employer has to notify you of its paid-time-off
policies ahead of time, through
postings or handouts.
Your company may look at
it as doing you a favor by allowing you to use vacation
days to replace income you
would have lost because of
the closings.
But the company also has
the option of just paying its

DEAR CONCERNED: Those
are great questions. For answers, I contacted a spokeswoman for the state Labor Department. She directed me to
a Q&A on the department’s
website.
A key takeaway: Furloughed federal workers are
usually eligible for unemployment insurance benefits
— with one very important
exception, which I’ll get to
ered taxable income, yes,
they are.
“If you are required to file
a tax return, your unemployment compensation is subject to these taxes: federal,
New York State, local,” the
website says.
Here is the important exception to eligibility, which federal employees affected by the
shutdown should keep in
mind.
If they are required to
work without pay during the
shutdown, they won’t qualify
for benefits during that time.
“A federal employee who is
called back to work is considered employed and not available for other employment,”
the website says.
One of the key eligibility
criteria for unemployed benefits is that jobless workers
be “ready, willing and able
to work and are actively
seeking work,” the department says.

As a federal employee, can he

What happens if he gets his

in a moment.
Here is what the department’s website says about eligibility and timing when filing for benefits:
“Most furloughed federal
employees are eligible to receive unemployment Insurance benefits. If you believe
you may be eligible, you
should file a claim. Department of Labor representatives
will determine if you are eligible. You should promptly file a
claim in the first week you are
not working.”
What happens if your
friend is paid retroactively
after the shutdown ends? The
short answer is that he will
have to repay the benefits.
“If the government pays
you retroactively, you will be
required to repay the benefits
you received during that
time,” the department says.
As to your last question

Facing a March deadline, talks
aimed at ending a U.S.-China trade
war are underway, with the world’s
two biggest economies expressing
optimism over the potential for
progress but neither indicating its
stance has changed.
Cooling economic growth in
both countries is increasing pressure to reach a settlement.
As the talks began Monday at the
Chinese Commerce Ministry, Beijing complained about a U.S. warship in what it said were Chinese waters, but it was unclear if that would
disrupt the proceedings. Both sides
have provided scant information
about their discussions.
The talks went ahead despite tensions over the arrest of a Chinese
tech executive in Canada on U.S.
charges related to possible violations of trade sanctions against Iran.
The American delegation is led by a
deputy U.S. trade representative, Jeffrey D. Gerrish, and includes agriculture, energy, Commerce, Treasury
and State Department officials.
President Donald Trump imposed
tariff increases of up to 25 percent on
$250 billion of Chinese imports over
complaints Beijing steals or pressures companies to hand over technology. President Xi Jinping responded by imposing penalties on
$110 billion of American goods.
A Dec. 1 agreement postponed
further tariff increases set to take
effect on Jan.1. Economists say the
90-day delay may be too short to
settle the disputes bedeviling
U.S.-Chinese relations.
Chinese growth fell to a postglobal-crisis low of 6.5 percent in
the quarter ended in September.
Auto sales tumbled 16 percent in
November over a year earlier.
Weak real estate sales are forcing
developers to cut prices.
The U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 3.4 percent in the third
quarter, and unemployment is at a
five-decade low. But surveys show
consumer confidence is weakening
because of concern that growth will
slow this year.
Washington, Europe and other
trading partners complain Beijing’s tactics violate its marketopening obligations.
The standoff also reflects American anxiety about China’s rise as a
potential competitor in telecommunications and other technology.

HOME ITEMS FOR EVEN YOU, SMARTY-PANTS
One day, finding an oven that
just cooks food may be as
tough as buying a TV that
merely lets you click between
channels.
Internet-connected “smarts”
are creeping into cars, refrigerators, thermostats, toys and just
about everything else in your
home. CES 2019, the gadget
show opening Tuesday in Las
Vegas, will showcase many of
these products, including an
oven that coordinates your
recipes and a toilet that flushes
with a voice command.
With every new smart device
in your home, companies can
gather more details about your
life. Some of that can be used to
help advertisers target you more
precisely than they could with
just your smartphone.
“It’s decentralized surveillance,” said Jeff Chester, executive director for the Center for
Digital Democracy, a Washington-based digital privacy advocate. “We’re living in a world
where we’re tethered to some
online service stealthily gathering our information.”
Yet, consumers so far seem
to be welcoming these devices.
The research firm IDC projects
that 1.3 billion smart devices
will ship worldwide in 2022,
twice as many as in 2018.
Companies say they are building these products not for snooping but for convenience, although Amazon, Google and
other enabling the intelligence
can use the details they collect to
customize their services and ads.
Whirlpool, for instance, is
testing an oven whose window
doubles as a display with animation pointing to where to place
the turkey for optimal cooking.
The oven can sync with your

digital calendar and recommend recipes based on how
much time you have. A camera
inside lets you zoom in to see if
the cheese on the lasagna has
browned enough.
As for that smart toilet,
Kohler’s Numi will respond to
voice commands to raise or
lower the lid — or to flush. You
can do it from an app, too. The
company says it’s all about offering hands-free options in a
setting that’s very personal for
people. The toilet is also heated
and can play music and the
news through its speakers. The
cost? a mere $7,000.
Kohler also has a tub that adjusts water temperature to your
liking.
For the most part, consumers
aren’t asking for such specific
features. “We try to be innovative in ways that customers don’t
think they need,” Samsung
spokesman Louis Masses said.
Samsung has several voice-enabled products, including a
fridge that comes with an app
that lets you check on its contents while you’re grocery shopping. New this year: Samsung’s
washing machines can send
alerts to its smart TVs so you
know your laundry is ready
while watching Netflix.
Other connected items at
CES include:
\ a fishing rod that tracks
your location to build an online map of where you’ve
made the most catches.
\ a toothbrush that recommends where to brush more.
\ a fragrance diffuser that lets
you control from a smartphone
app how your home smells.
These are poised to join internet-connected security cameras,
door locks and thermostats that
are already on the market.
Chester said consumers feel
the need to keep up with the
Joneses buying appliances with
the smartest smarts, but they
can be “a powerful drug to help
people forget the fact that they
are also being spied on.”
Gadgets with voice controls
typically aren’t transmitting
any data back to company
servers until you activate them
with a trigger word, such as
“Alexa” or “OK Google.” But devices have sometimes misheard
innocuous words as legitimate
commands to record and send
private conversations.
Even when devices work properly, commands are usually
stored indefinitely. Companies
can use the data to personalize
experiences — including ads. Beyond that, background conversations may be stored with the
voice recordings and can resurface with hacking or as part of
lawsuits or investigations.
If insurers get hold of data on
what you cook, they might
charge you more for unhealthy
diets, warned Paul Stephens, director of policy and advocacy at
the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse in San Diego.
The market for smart devices is still small, but growing.
“Dumb” TVs are rare these
days, and “dumb” cars are also
headed to the scrapyard. But consumers can can vote with their
wallets, Stephens said.
“I’m a firm believer that simple is better. ”

pair of interlocking red and yellow circles where it has resided
for more than 50 years.
Mastercard Inc. joins a
small stable of brands like
Nike, Apple and Target that
rely on a well-known image
and not a name in most of
their marketing materials.
It also points to the changing
nature of exchanging currency.
One of the original major credit
card companies, formerly
known as Master Charge, Mastercard has attempted to rebrand itself in recent years as a
“technology company in the
global payments industry.”
The company, based in Purchase, said Monday 80 percent
of people recognize the MasterCard logo even when its name
isn’t present.

Surprises
on Ghosn
predicted
The Associated Press
The son of former Nissan
chairman Carlos Ghosn said
in an interview Sunday that
people will be surprised
when his father, detained
since Nov. 19 for allegedly falsifying financial reports, recounts his version of events
to a Tokyo court on Tuesday.
Anthony Ghosn, 24, told
France’s weekly Journal du Dimanche his father — who will
remain detained until
at least Friday — will
get 10 minutes to talk
at a hearing
being held
at his own
Carlos Ghosn
request.
“For the
first time, he can talk about
his version of the allegations
against him,” Anthony Ghosn
said in the interview. “I think
everyone will be rather surprised hearing his version of
the story. Until now, we’ve
only heard the accusers.”
The son has no direct contact with his father and gets
information via lawyers.
He said his father, who
was a revered figure in the
global auto industry, has
lost weight but reads books
and “resists,” refusing to
cave in, contending that he
would be freed from detention if he admitted guilt to
the prosecutor.
“But for seven weeks his
decision has been quite
clear. He won’t give in,” Anthony Ghosn said.
Countering media portrayals, he insisted his father, a
Brazilian-born Frenchman of
Lebanese ancestry, is “not obsessed by money.” “He always
told us that money is but a
means to help those you love,
but not an end unto itself.”
Ghosn is charged with underreporting his pay by
about 5 billion yen ($44 million) in 2011-2015, and faces a
breach of trust allegation.
He led Nissan Motor Co.
for two decades and helped
save the Japanese automaker
from near bankruptcy.
He still heads France’s Renault car company, which
owns 43 percent of Nissan.

World Bank head resigning
Jim Yong Kim, president of the
Washington, D.C.-based World
Bank, announced Monday he is resigning at the end of January.
Obama-nominee Kim’s unexpected
departure, nearly three years before
his term was set to expire, is likely to
set off a battle between the Trump
administration and other countries
who have complained about the influence the United States exerts
over the bank, which is the largest
government source for development
funding, providing low-cost loans
for projects around the world. Now
President Donald Trump has the opportunity to nominate his choice to
fill the post. Kim’s successor will be

Tesla breaks ground in China
Tesla Inc. broke ground Monday
for a factory in Shanghai, its first outside the United States. CEO Elon
Musk said Monday on Twitter the
company will start production in
China of its Model 3 and a planned
crossover by the end of the year.
Tesla announced plans in July to
build the Gigafactory 3 facility in
China, the biggest electric-vehicle
market, despite trade tensions between Beijing and Washington. That
followed Beijing’s announcement it
would end restrictions this year on
foreign ownership of electric-vehicle producers in an effort to spur industry development. The Shanghai
factory will produce “affordable versions of 3/Y for greater China,”
Musk said. The company refers to a
planned crossover that has yet to receive a formal name as the Y.
Higher-priced models will be built
in the United States for export to
China, Musk said.
‘No-deal’ Brexit road tests
Britain is testing how its motorway and ferry system would handle a “no-deal” Brexit by sending a
stream of trucks from a closed
local airport to the port of Dover
— even as some legislators try to
pressure the government to rule
out the scenario. The tests began
Monday morning and are intended to gauge how severe the
disruption would be if Britain
leaves the European Union on
March 29 without an agreed-upon
withdrawal deal. It is widely expected that an abrupt departure
would lead to the introduction of
tariff and customs barriers that
would slow fast-moving ferry and
rail traffic that links Britain to continental Europe. There are concerns that major traffic jams leading in and out of ferry ports like
Dover would greatly hamper trade
and leave Britain without adequate food and medicine. Parliament is expected to resume its debate over the government’s
planned withdrawal deal Wednesday, with a vote widely expected a
week later.

The Supreme Court seems likely
to side with drugmaker Merck in a
dispute over the warning label on its
bone-strengthening drug Fosamax.
During arguments Monday in a lawsuit against the New Jersey-based
company, only two justices seemed
inclined to rule against Merck. A
trial court initially threw out claims
against Merck. An appeals court revived them. The case before the
Supreme Court involves hundreds
of people who say they suffered Fosamax-related thigh-bone fractures,
and Merck failed to provide adequate warnings on the drug’s label.
Merck says the Food and Drug Administration rejected its warning attempt because the FDA believed
available data didn’t initially support
one. Fosamax is prescribed to prevent and treat osteoporosis in postmenopausal women.

The Rev. C. John McCloskey
in 2002.
Bohlin said McCloskey’s actions at the Center were
“deeply painful for the woman,
and we are very sorry for all
she suffered.”
Bohlin’s statement, which
came after the survivor requested Opus Dei go public in
an effort to reach other potential
victims, said McCloskey was removed from his job at the Center
a year after the complaint, when
it was found to be credible.
“All harassment and abuse are
abhorrent,” Bohlin wrote. “I am
painfully aware of all that the
Church is suffering, and I am
very sorry that we in Opus Dei
have added to it. Let us ask God
to show mercy on all of us in the
Church at this difficult time.”
After leaving Washington
after the complaints, McCloskey was sent to England,
and then Chicago and then California for assignments with
Opus Dei. In the statement
Monday, Opus Dei said after
the settlement McCloskey was
told to only give spiritual direction to women in the traditional
confessional — meaning separated physically from them.
McCloskey, who is now in his
60s, in very recent months
moved back to the D.C. region.
The order said Monday that he
“suffers
from
advanced
Alzheimer’s. He is largely incapacitated and needs assistance
for routine daily tasks. He has
not had any pastoral assignments
for a number of years and is no
longer able to celebrate Mass.”
The woman is now in her
mid-50s, and was 40 when the
incidents occurred.

WASHINGTON — The
Catholic order Opus Dei in
2005 paid $977,000 to settle a
sexual misconduct suit against
the Rev. C. John McCloskey, a
priest well-known for preparing for conversion big-name
conservatives — Newt Gingrich, Larry Kudlow and Sam
Brownback, among others.
The survivor is a devout,
Washington-area Catholic who
was among the many who received spiritual direction from
McCloskey through the Catholic Information Center, a hub
of Catholic life there. She told
The Washington Post McCloskey groped her several
times while she was going to
pastoral counseling with him to
discuss marital troubles and serious depression.
The guilt and shame over the
interactions sent her into a tailspin and, combined with her existing depression, made it impossible for her to work in her highlevel job. She spoke to him about
her “misperceived guilt over the
interaction” in confession and
he absolved her, she said.
“I love Opus Dei but I was
caught up in this cover-up — I
went to confession, thinking I
did something to tempt this
holy man to cross boundaries,”
she said.
The complaint was not made
public by the order until Monday, but behind the scenes the
ministry of the well-known
priest had been sharply curtailed. A lot of Washingtonarea Catholics have wondered
for years what happened to McCloskey, who was the closest
thing to a celebrity the Catholic
Church had in the area.
One other woman told the
order that McCloskey’s touches
had made her uncomfortable, an
Opus Dei spokesman said Monday night. He said Opus Dei is
also investigating a third claim
— so far unsubstantiated — that
spokesman Brian Finnerty
called potentially “serious.” He
declined to provide details.

Prosecutor: Mistaken ID
The Associated Press
HOUSTON — Two men suspected in a drive-by shooting
that killed a 7-year-old black
Houston girl and that was initially investigated as a possible
hate crime mistakenly thought
they were attacking people
whom they had fought with at a
club hours earlier, a prosecutor
said Monday.
One of the men, Eric Black
Jr., appeared in court Monday
on a capital murder charge in
the Dec. 30 killing of Jazmine
Barnes. Black, 20, didn’t speak
during the brief hearing or answer reporters’ questions as he
was being led into the courtroom. His lawyer, Alvin Nunnery, didn’t speak to the media
after the hearing and didn’t im-
mediately reply to a call seeking comment.
Black, who is African-American, was arrested Saturday during a traffic stop. Prosecutors allege that he told investigators
he was driving the SUV from
which an unidentified passenger fired at Jazmine, her three
sisters and mother as they were
on their way to a grocery store.
Authorities have declined to
name the suspected shooter or
say whether he has been arrested, but Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said he is black.
Based on the family’s account
of what happened, authorities
initially believed that a white
man in a red pickup truck was
behind the attack. But they later
received a tip implicating two
black men in the shooting.
Prosecutor Samantha Knecht
told a judge Monday that the
unidentified passenger fired on
the family’s car in a case of mistaken identity, thinking it belonged to people he and Black
had fought with at a club hours
before the shooting. She declined to comment about the
second suspect.
Gonzalez said there was, in
fact, a red pickup truck driven
by a white man seen at a stoplight just before the shooting,
but the driver didn’t appear to
have been involved. The sheriff
said it was dark, the shooting
happened quickly, and the red
truck was probably the last
thing seen by Jazmine’s family.
He said authorities believe
Jazmine’s family has been truthful during the investigation.

murder and attempted murder
over his attorney’s objections,

chance for parole on Feb. 5.
Dalton, 48, admitted that he
shot eight people at three locations. After his arrest, police
quoted Dalton as saying a
“devil figure” on Uber’s app
was controlling him.
Four women were killed in

In what was billed as a “dramatic announcement,” Israeli

BANGKOK — An 18-yearold Saudi woman who fled her
family over alleged abuse and
barricaded herself in a Bangkok airport hotel room in a desperate bid for asylum will be allowed to stay in Thailand
while her case is evaluated by
the United Nations refugee
agency, immigration authorities said Monday.
Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun
grabbed global attention when
she sent out pleas for help via
social media, saying she feared
for her life if she were put on a
plane back to Kuwait, where
she had slipped away from her
family, or her homeland.
Instead, she has been allowed
to enter Thailand temporarily
under the protection of the UN
refugee agency, which was expected to take about five to
seven days to study her case
and her claim for asylum. She
said she wants to go to Australia
to seek refuge there.
Alqunun’s plight mirrors
that of other Saudi women
who in recent years have
turned to social media to amplify their calls for help while
trying to flee abusive families
and other obstacles they face
in the conservative kingdom.
Photos released Monday
night by immigration police
showed Alqunun with Thai and
UN officials after she left the airport transit hotel room where
she had been holed up over the
weekend, sending her pleas for
Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun with officials before leaving Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok Monday.
help on her Twitter account.
She later tweeted that she feels
safe under UN protection and
has gotten back her passport,
which had been taken from her
earlier.
Alqunun’s ordeal began
when she fled from her family
while in Kuwait and boarded a
flight to Thailand, apparently
taking advantage of being
away from Saudi Arabia’s restrictions on women who cannot travel abroad without a
man’s consent.
Upon arriving at Bangkok’s
Suvarnabhumi Airport on Saturday night, she said she was met
by a man whom she identified
at various times as either a
Kuwait Airways employee or a
Saudi diplomat, who took her
passport and said he would help
her gain entry to Thailand.
Saudi Arabia denies its officials
were involved in any way.
When the man returned
about an hour later with four
or five other people, they said
they knew she had run away,
that her family wanted her
back, and she should go home
to Saudi Arabia. She was sent
to a hotel room, and told she
would be put on a Monday
morning flight to Kuwait.
She then went online, sending out pleas for assistance
over Twitter, and also barricaded her hotel room door.
Global attention was sparked
by social media and she did
not get on the scheduled morning flight to Kuwait.
Alqunun wrote of being in
“real danger” if forced to return to her family in Saudi
Arabia, and said in media interviews that she might be
killed. She told the BBC that
she had renounced Islam and
was fearful of her father’s retaliation.
Her Twitter account attracted more than 66,000 followers in less than 48 hours
and her story grabbed the attention of foreign governments and the UN refugee
agency. As the pressure grew,
with concern expressed by
Australian lawmakers, Germany’s ambassador to Thailand and human rights agencies, Thai officials agreed to
allow UN refugee officials to
meet with her.
Her case highlighted Saudi
Arabia’s male guardianship
laws, which require women
who want to travel, obtain a
passport or marry to have the
consent of a male relative —
usually a father or husband —
no matter what their age.

Kim’s trip comes after U.S.
and North Korean officials reportedly met in Vietnam to
discuss the location of a second summit between Kim
and Trump as the two na-
tions look to settle the
North’s decades-long pursuit
of a nuclear arsenal.
Washington and Pyongyang
seemed close to war at points
during 2017 as the North staged
a series of increasingly powerful weapons tests that got it tantalizingly close to its nuclear
goal of one day targeting with
pinpoint accuracy anywhere on
the U.S. mainland
Possibly fearing the effect
on his country’s terrible economy of crushing outside sanc-
tions imposed because of his
weapons’ tests, Kim abruptly
turned to diplomacy with
Seoul and Washington last
year. Three times he visited
China, which is North Korea’s
most important trading partner and a key buffer against
pressure from Washington.
But even after what was
seen as a blockbuster summit
between Kim and Trump in
Singapore last June, there’s
been little real progress in nuclear disarmament.

Pope Francis expressed concern Monday over the rise of

Without specifying countries

JERUSALEM — Moshe
Arens, a former Israeli defense
minister, foreign minister and
an early political mentor to
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, died Monday.
He was 93.
An engineer by training, the
American-raised Arens was instrumental in developing Israel’s military and aircraft industries and served three stints
as the country’s defense minister. He was a longtime stalwart
in the hawkish Likud party.
In the early 1980s, Arens was
the first to recognize the skills
of a young Benjamin Netanyahu, who then was running
an anti-terror institute and
working in marketing.
Arens took Netanyahu under
his wing and brought him into
Israeli politics.
“There was no greater patriot. Moshe Arens’ great contribution to our people and our
state will be remembered forever,” Netanyahu said in a statement.
Addressing Arens by his nickname Misha, Netanyahu concluded: “I loved you as a son
loved his father.”
Arens was born in Lithuania
in 1925 but grew up in the United
States, where he was active in
the Beitar youth movement of
Likud’s precursor, the Herut
party of Menachem Begin. He
served in the American military
during World War II before immigrating to Israel in 1948.
After completing his engineering degrees at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the California Institute
of Technology, Arens settled in
AP / KAMENKO PAJIC
Moshe Arens, ex-Israeli defense minister
Moshe Arens in 2001
Israel permanently. He worked
as a professor of aeronautics at
the Technion — the Israel Institute of Technology — and as an
executive at Israel Aircraft In-
dustries before going into politics. Arens was first elected to
parliament in 1973.
In 1982, he was appointed Israeli ambassador to the United
States and named his young
protégé Netanyahu as his
deputy. The position gave Netanyahu great exposure, led to
his posting as ambassador to
the United Nations and
launched his political career.
Arens served as foreign minister and twice as defense minister under Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir. He briefly
served as defense minister
again under Netanyahu in the
late 1990s. He later became a
columnist for the liberal
Haaretz newspaper, wrote several books and won numerous
awards in Israel and overseas.
President Reuven Rivlin remembered Arens as a pillar of
the Likud’s ideological wing,
and “a man of honor who never
flinched from the fight.”
“Misha was one of the most
important ministers of defense
the state of Israel ever had. He
was not a commander or a general, but a devoted man of learning who toiled day and night
for the security of Israel and its
citizens,” Rivlin said. “His internal compass and Zionist vision
showed him the way in everything he did.”
Arens is survived by his wife
Muriel, four children and numerous grandchildren.

Top player to miss season for getting paid
MONTGOMERY, Ala. — One
of the nation’s top girls high
school basketball players appears likely to remain benched
for her entire senior season after
spending part of last summer
playing with USA Basketball.
Maori Davenport, who received an $857.20 check from
USA Basketball that was later repaid, has been trying to get into
games this season in Troy, Alabama, after being suspended by
state high school officials.
Davenport, a Charles Hender-
GIRLS BASKETBALL
son High School senior and Rutgers signee, was ruled ineligible
Nov. 30 after receiving the
money for “lost wages.” She was
a member of the U.S. team that
won the gold medal in a tournament in Mexico City.
“Maori has not done a doggone thing, except receive a
check from doggone USA Basketball,” Rutgers coach Vivian
Stringer said recently. “It was
grown-ups at fault. And grownups did not lay claim to that.”
Alabama high school officials
agree adults are at fault, but are
standing by their decision, saying the rules are the rules.
Two appeals on Davenport’s
behalf have been denied and
Monday state officials defended the suspension.
Johnny Hardin, president of
the Alabama High School Athletic Association’s central board
of control, issued a statement
saying Davenport had adults
around her who should have
known the rules. He pointed out
that the Aug. 15 payment wasn’t
reported for 91 days and that
Davenport played in “several
games” during that time, violating the state’s amateurism rule.
He also noted that Davenport’s mother, Tara, is an assistant coach for Henderson who
has AHSAA certification. USA
Basketball
informed
the
AHSAA about the payment in
November, said Craig Miller,
spokesman for the basketball
organization.
“The stories and comments
being circulated throughout
the media and social networks
are asking that an exception be
made to the amateur rule because it was not the student’s
fault, the fact the money was repaid, and that the student is an
exceptional athlete and will
miss her senior year,” Hardin
said. “However, if exceptions
are made, there would no
longer be a need for an amateur
rule.”

onship game streak just a bit,
but who can blame him? It
sure feels like eight or nine.
Playing the Patriots has
been a Sisyphus-like proposition for Rivers, who is 0-7
against the Patriots when
Brady plays. His only career
win over New England came
after Matt Cassel replaced
an injured Brady in the 2008
season. Two of Rivers’ losses
to the Patriots came in the
playoffs, including the AFC
Championship Game in January 2008, when Rivers
played despite a torn ACL.
“It’s going to be a heck of
a challenge,” he said. “When
you have a chance to go
against them 11 years after
we had that opportunity,
yeah, it’s awesome.”
A chance to avenge one of
his most painful defeats?
Well, yes and no.
“Only one other guy on
that [Chargers] team is
here,” Rivers said, referring
to tight end Antonio Gates.
The passage of time has
dulled the pain, but Rivers
very much looks forward to
staying alive for at least another week.
“It’s exciting to get another chance,” he said. “Just
goes to show, unless you’re
the Patriots, it’s hard. For
most of us, it’s not that easy
to get in, and when you get
in and now you know you’re

was fired last week after three
years as the Dolphins’ coach; former Packers coach Mike McCarthy and Cowboys secondary
coach and defensive passing
game coordinator Kris Richard.
Richard is the only candidate
with a defensive resume. McCarthy, Gase and Caldwell have
worked with all-time great QBs.
McCarthy had Brett Favre and
Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.
Gase was Peyton Manning’s offensive coordinator in Denver in
2013 when he threw for 5,477
yards and 55 touchdowns.
Caldwell, 63, who went 62-50
as a head coach for Indianapolis
and Detroit, spent 10 seasons
with the Colts from 2002-11. He
was their assistant head
coach/quarterbacks coach for
seven years and head coach for
the last three. Caldwell spent
two seasons with the Ravens as
offensive
coordinator
and
helped them win the Super Bowl
in February 2013. He took over in
Detroit in 2014, helped develop
Matthew Stafford and reached
the postseason in two of his four
years with the Lions.

second meeting.

One vacancy was filled Monday.
The Packers reportedly will hire

The Jets’ coaching search is
heating up.
Team officials interviewed
two candidates Monday: former
Colts and Lions coach Jim Caldwell and ex-Texas Tech coach
and current USC offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury.
USC had been declining NFL
teams’ requests to interview
Kingsbury, who joined the
school in December. But multiple reports said Kingsbury interviewed with the Jets and Cardinals on Monday.
Kingsbury and Caldwell are
the fifth and sixth known interviews the Jets have done to find
Todd Bowles’ successor. That
number should grow very soon.
Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken is expected
to meet with the Jets on Tuesday.
Former Temple and current Baylor coach Matt Rhule also is on
their radar.
Rhule, a native New Yorker,
spent a season working for Tom
Coughlin as the Giants’ assistant
offensive line coach. There are
reports that the Jets already have
spoken to him about their vacancy.
Jets CEO Christopher Johnson
promised a “thorough” search
and has made it clear that the
ideal candidate is a coach who
has developed a young quarterback. Finding someone who can
bring out the best in Sam
Darnold is driving this search.
All but one of the candidates in
whom the Jets have expressed interest have an offensive background.
The Jets are looking for the
next Sean McVay, the young
Rams coach who brought passion and an innovative offense to
L.A. and helped turn around that
franchise almost immediately.
Kingsbury, 39, has become a
hot candidate because of that.
He was only 35-40 in six seasons
at Texas Tech, but he is considered a bright offensive mind
with a good track record with
quarterbacks. He has worked
with Johnny Manziel, NFL MVP
candidate Patrick Mahomes and
Baker Mayfield, a Rookie of the
Year candidate.
Jets safety Jamal Adams already is on record that he wants
Kingsbury to be the next coach
of the Jets. After it was reported
that the Jets were interviewing
Kingsbury, Adams tweeted,
“Yessssssssssiiiiiiirrrrr.”
The Jets also have interviewed

Philip Rivers is on a mission

Yes, he will do everything
possible to make that happen
now that the Chargers, coming off a 12-4 regular season
and a 23-17 win over the
Ravens in the AFC wild-card
round, have advanced to the
divisional round.
But Rivers also will take a
moment — not as the Chargers’ quarterback but simply as
an NFL fan — to behold what
he’s about to see Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.
The Chargers will face the
Patriots, who have dominated
the NFL like no other team,
winning the Super Bowl five
times beginning with the 2001
season and looking to qualify
for their eighth consecutive
berth in the AFC Championship Game.
“On some level, I’m a fan
of those guys,” said Rivers,
who hopes to join Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger
as quarterbacks from the
draft class of 2004 who have
won the Super Bowl. “I have
a lot of respect for New England. You’re going against a
Bill Belichick team and a
Tom Brady-led team. You’re
talking about arguably the
greatest of all time.”
Rivers, 37, knows his opportunities are dwindling,
which is why he never takes
these moments for granted.
Not now, and not before, as
he harked back to his days
battling Peyton Manning.
“Peyton’s always a favorite,”
said Rivers, who was 22-for-32
for 160 yards and led six scoring drives against the Ravens’
No. 1-ranked defense. “It is
special to look over and say,
‘Peyton Manning is leading
that team over there.’ That’s
special to me. Tom Brady’s
leading that [Patriots] team,
and that’s special. I’m not
going against Tom, but it’s special. Just that franchise.

we can stop the streak.”

DOLAN: MY GUYS WON’T TANK
Owner of Garden
teams decries
deliberate losing
BY COLIN STEPHENSON
NEWSDAY, TUESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2019
AP / BILL KOSTROUN
LAS VEGAS — James
Dolan checked out the
Rangers’ practice Monday,
then told reporters that he is
happy with the performance
of first-year coach David
Quinn, satisfied with the way
the team’s rebuilding project
is going and adamant that neither the Rangers nor the
Knicks will ever tank games
in an attempt to secure a better draft pick.
Dolan — the executive
chairman and CEO of the
Madison Square Garden Company,
which
owns
the
Rangers, the Knicks and the
MSG cable television network
— sat down with the two traveling beat reporters who
cover the Rangers for a stateof-the-team address. He was
asked if there had been any arguments in favor of tanking
the season for either the
Rangers or the Knicks.
“Not in my office,’’ he said.
“I mean, if you’re talking
about what I hear, sure, fans
are telling me, with the
Knicks, they’re saying they
don’t want us to win. They
want us to get this kid out of
Duke [Zion Williamson, the
presumptive No. 1 pick in this
June’s NBA Draft].
“But with the Rangers, no,’’
he said. “I think the team believes they still have an excellent shot at making the playoffs, and if they keep getting
better, by the time they get to
the playoffs, they’ll be a better
team than they are today. And
maybe they got a shot to get
past the first round, or whatever. I mean, it gets them
more playoff experience.
“I think teams that tank are
giving away something really
big,’’ he said. “I think they’re
giving away that emotional development for the team . . .
So none of my teams are
going to tank. I’ll never tell a
team to lose.’’

and No. 2, because he believes

getting a better draft pick
helps,’’ he said.
Dolan said goaltender Henrik Lundqvist represents the
biggest difference in the respective rebuilding efforts of
the Rangers and Knicks
(10-30), who lost in Portland
on Monday night.
“If the Knicks had a [player
equivalent to] Henrik, they’d
probably be competing for a
playoff spot,’’ he said.
While Dolan acknowledged
that the Rangers don’t expect
to challenge for the Stanley
Cup this season, he insisted
that the team expects to be
competitive nightly. He said
he isn’t alarmed by the current three-game losing streak
in which the team has been
outscored 18-3 and Lundqvist
has been pulled in both of his
starts.
“No, it shouldn’t surprise
you too much,’’ he said of the
losing streak. “What it is,
though, is an opportunity to
learn, particularly for the kids.
They’ll probably always remember this dip because it
was so dramatic. Hopefully,
we won’t see one again, because they learn.’’
Dolan recently gave an interview to ESPN The Magazine
in which he raised the possibility of selling the Knicks or the
Garden, but he said on Mon-
day that isn’t something he is
interested in doing. He said
he hasn’t had any offers for
any of the properties since he
gave that interview.
“I said what I said in the interview because I was talking
from the point of view of a
public company chairman,
which is the answer that I
must give,’’ he said. “At the
same time, we are not selling
either one of the teams, and
we made that abundantly
clear within 24 hours of that
interview being released. And
since then, everybody has
taken me at my word.’’

Al Arbour was serving in his second stint behind the Islanders’

It seems like forever ago. Now
the Islanders have a chance for
their first single-season sevengame winning streak since then —
29 years later. They will face Carolina on Tuesday night at NYCB

At the start of the season, expectations were not riding high.

Lehner has exceeded expectations. He has allowed only 13 goals

“The team does good, individual

“I’m just happy we’re winning right

Even with all this winning, the Islanders are in fourth in the Metropolitan Division, one point behind
Columbus, two behind secondplace Pittsburgh and four behind
first-place Washington.

title in three years
BY ROBBY GENERAL

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Perhaps there is no stage too big for
Trevor Lawrence.
The freshman quarterback led
Clemson to a stunning 44-16 win
over Alabama in the 2019 National Championship Game on
Monday night at Levi’s Stadium.
Lawrence became the first
true freshman starting quarterback to lead his team to a national title since Jamelle
Holieway guided Oklahoma past
Penn State in the 1986 Orange
Bowl.
“You know, that doesn’t mean
as much as being able to be a
part of this team,” he said.
Lawrence completed 20 of 32
passes for 347 yards and three
touchdowns. He led the Tigers
(15-0) to the third national championship in school history and
their second in three years.
“There hasn’t ever been a 15-0
team and I know we’re not supposed to be here,” Tigers coach
Dabo Swinney said. “We’re just
little old Clemson and I’m not
supposed to be here. But we are
and I am.
“How about them Tigers? I’m
so proud of our guys, these seniors. We beat Notre Dame and
Alabama. We left no doubt and
we walk off this field tonight as
the first 15-0 team in college football history.”
Alabama (14-1) had the chance
to complete a dominant decade
but suffered its worst loss since
six-time national champion
coach Nick Saban arrived in
2007. His previous worst defeat
for the Tide was by 14 points.
Alabama sophomore Tua
Tagovailoa, whose stunning
touchdown pass led the Tide to
an overtime victory over Georgia and last season’s national
title, completed 22 of 34 passes
for 295 yards and two touchdowns. But his two interceptions
helped Clemson build a lead that
was too big to overcome.
“We had a great season, but
five words: Good is not good
enough,” Tagovailoa said. “We

didn’t finish the way we wanted
to finish. We didn’t do the things
we needed to do to execute and
be successful in this game, and
that’s all it is.”
Within the first five minutes
of the fourth consecutive College Football Playoff meeting between Alabama and Clemson,
the teams scored a combined 21
points. Clemson cornerback A.J.
Terrell began the scoring frenzy,
returning a 44-yard interception
for a touchdown and a 7-0 lead
1:40 into the game.
Tagovailoa seemed unfazed by
the pick-6, finding wide receiver
Jerry Jeudy down the middle of
the field for a 62-yard touchdown on the following drive.
Looking for Jeudy on another
deep pass in the second quarter,
Tagovailoa threw his second interception. It landed in the arms
of cornerback Trayvon Mullen,
who returned it to midfield.
“I won’t say that that’s the best
game I played but I know I came
to play,” Mullen said. “I mean,
the whole defense came to play,
the whole team, all phases.”
Lawrence then led a 75-yard
drive that included a 62-yard connection with a wide-open Tee
Higgins.
Alabama took a 16-14 lead before Clemson closed out the half
by scoring 17 unanswered points.
Clemson’s 31 first-half points
equaled the most Alabama had
given up in the Saban era.
Alabama was able to move the
ball in the first half, outgaining
Clemson 266-224, but the Crimson Tide kept making mistakes
and Clemson kept taking advantage. “I think we did a good job
on offense moving the ball
against them,” Saban said at
halftime. “We had a good plan,
[but] we turned the ball over
twice by throwing two bad interceptions, one that was a
pick-6.”
He added, “We didn’t finish
drives in the red zone [or] we
could have got right back in the
game. We had the ball down
there three times and didn’t
score a point, didn’t score a
point. We had a fake field goal,
went for it on fourth down twice,
had the ball on the 1-yard line.”
In the third quarter, Lawrence
found freshman receiver Justyn
Ross, who was wide open after
cornerback Saivion Smith went
down on the play with an apparent left leg injury. The 74-yard
touchdown pass gave Clemson a
37-16 lead.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — The College Football Playoff, with its
four-team format, won’t expand in the foreseeable future.
The playoff’s governance
held its annual meeting of the
board of managers to discuss
expanding the event.
The consensus? The playoff,
in year five of its 12-year contract with ESPN, won’t be
going past four teams anytime
soon.
“As far as expanding the number of teams in the playoff, it’s
way too soon — much too soon
— to know if that is even a possibility,” Mark Keenum, chairman
of the playoff board of managers
and president of Mississippi
State, said in a statement.
Keenum said the board — 11
university presidents and chancellors representing each Football Bowl Subdivision conference and independents — is in
“unanimous agreement that the
playoff has been a tremendous
success.”
In an interview after the meeting, Keenum said the group was
focused on how the administration can make the playoff more
successful because “the consensus was very pleased with the
current format.”
The statement said adminis-
trators are “very happy” with
the 12-year contract with ESPN.
CFP executive director Bill
Hancock said there is nothing
in the contract that suggests
any changes could be made.
“There’s some misconception
about a look-in after a certain
number of years. Misconception,” Hancock said. “There’s no
look-in, there’s no clause in the
contract about changes.”
The structure, introduced
during the 2014-15 college football season, was widely accepted in its first four seasons,
unlike the Bowl Championship
Series that existed from
1998-2013.
Since the playoff began, the
Southeastern Conference and Atlantic Coast Conference have
had six and five teams appear, respectively, most among major
conferences. Some Power Five
conference winners, however,
have been left out of the fourteam playoff in multiple years.
The Big Ten champion has
missed the last three semifinals.
“That didn’t come up today,”
Keenum said when asked about
the Big Ten’s case. “It’s a fourteam playoff . . . it’s a Power Five
makeup. Any given year, if you
have one of those four champions in the playoff, there’s going
to be someone on the outside
looking in. That’s the inherent
nature of the playoff.”
For the first time in four
years, St. John’s is ranked in
the Top 25.
The Red Storm (14-1, 2-1)
are ranked 24th in the latest
Associated Press poll released Monday afternoon. It’s
the first time St. John’s has
been ranked since Jan. 5, 2015,
when it also was 24th. That
season, the Red Storm was
ranked for five consecutive
weeks in December and January, reaching as high as 15th
on Dec. 29, 2014, before
losses to Seton Hall, Butler
and Villanova sent them
down, and eventually out of,
the rankings.
The 14-1 start is the Red
Storm’s best since 1985-86,
when they also started 14-1
and finished 31-5. St. John’s
will visit defending national
champion Villanova (11-4, 2-0
Big East) on Tuesday night.
This year’s rankings debut
comes two days after the Red
Storm wrapped up their most
impressive week of the season.
They dominated 16th-ranked
Marquette, 89-69, on New
Year’s Day at Carnesecca
Arena and followed that with a
97-94 overtime win over host
Georgetown on Saturday.
St. John’s scored on its first
four possessions of overtime
to take an eight-point lead
over the Hoyas and defended a
pair of potential tying threepointers in the final 23 seconds to beat Georgetown in
Washington for the first time
since Jan. 18, 2003.
The victory snapped a
13-game road losing streak
against the Hoyas and was
seen by many as a seasondefining win, one that proved
St. John’s belonged in the Top
25.
St. John’s won its first 12
games of the season before
falling to Seton Hall in controversial fashion on Dec. 30 in
New Jersey. Seton Hall’s
Shavar Reynolds Jr. nailed a
three-pointer with fourtenths of a second remaining
to ruin the Red Storm’s perfect season. The play came

Injury bug bites hard

NEWSDAY, TUESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2019
newsday.com
BOSTON — Injuries, the
NBA schedule and a championship-contending
Celtics
team combined to snap the
Nets’ three-game winning
streak in a 116-95 rout Monday
night at TD Garden.
The Nets were playing their
third game in four nights and
were down to 10 healthy bodies, and the loss dropped
them to eighth in the Eastern
Conference.
The Nets trailed by 20 in
the second quarter and still
were down by 17 late in the
third when they scored eight
straight points, ending with a
three-pointer by Spencer Dinwiddie to open the fourth
quarter and cut their deficit to
86-77. But the Celtics had too
much firepower and turned it
up at will with a 22-7 run that
pushed their lead to 108-84.
Rookie Rodions Kurucs led
the Nets (20-22) with 24
points, including a career-high
five three-pointers, Dinwiddie
added 15 points and Kenneth
Faried totaled 13 points and 12
rebounds. But the Nets committed 23 turnovers leading to
30 Celtics points and shot
only 11-for-42 from threepoint range.

figures for the Celtics (24-15).
Turnovers killed the Nets in
the first quarter and again in
the third after they cut their
deficit to 59-54 before the
Celtics pushed their margin
back to 17.
“That was kind of the old
Nets,” coach Kenny Atkinson
said. “That was a big problem
of ours last year and the beginning of this year. Their bigs are
up in pick-and-rolls and they’re
swiping and they’re active and
they pull over on the weak side.
They put a ton of pressure on
your ballhandlers.”
The Nets came into the
game as one of the NBA’s
hottest teams with a 12-3
record in their previous 15
games. But the injury bug that
has tested their improved
depth all season stretched
them to the breaking point.
Joe Harris sat out with an
ankle sprain suffered in Sunday’s win in Chicago and DeMarre Carroll (sore left knee)
also sat out. Atkinson said before the game that he doubts
that the injuries to Harris and
Carroll will be anything longterm. Both players said after

be ready to face the Hawks on
Wednesday night at Barclays
Center.
In any event, Atkinson
shunned the injury excuse,
saying: “We have 10 NBA players. We just didn’t play well
enough. I don’t think it was a
matter of bodies.”
Considering the Nets had a
chance to reach the .500 mark
after starting the season 8-18,
it was a disappointing ending
to a three-game trip that
began with wins in Memphis
and Chicago, but Atkinson
praised his players for going
2-1, and they took it to heart.
“Obviously, they are one of
the better teams in the Eastern Conference and they
forced a lot of turnovers,
which got them out in transition and got them easy buckets,” Dinwiddie said of the
Celtics. “But any time you go
2-1 on what was supposed to
be a really tough road trip, it’s
definitely good. We would
have liked to get this one as
well. We believe in our guys
and our capability to do so,
but 2-1 is solid.”

played in China in 2010 and

Stevens likes Nets’ progress since ’13 trade
BY GREG LOGAN
greg.logan@newsday.com
BOSTON — For the first time
in three seasons since general
manager Sean Marks and coach
Kenny Atkinson took over, the
Nets are free from the shackles
of the disastrous 2013 trade with
the Celtics that cost them a slew
of first-round picks in exchange
for aging stars Kevin Garnett
and Paul Pierce.
The Nets lost to the Celtics,
116-95, at TD Garden on Monday
night, but after floundering for
two seasons under Marks and
Atkinson, they are 20-22, have
won 12 of their last 16 games and
occupy the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot.
Celtics coach Brad Stevens
raved before the game about
how much progress the Nets
have made. “In Brooklyn’s case, I
love the way they play,” he said.
“They play hard, they play together. Everybody knows what
they’re supposed to do, and they
do it every night. They look like
a team. They’ve done a great job
of building that over time.
“I’d be surprised if this team’s
not in the playoffs. They’re awfully good. Again, they’re really
well-coached.”
Stevens said point guards
D’Angelo Russell and Spencer
Dinwiddie are the key to the
Nets’ spread offense, but he also
praised the play of centers Jarrett Allen and Ed Davis in the
pick-and-roll game and noted
that a lot of other Nets are playing well too.
Asked if he thinks about the
link between the two teams,
Stevens said the Celtics paid at-
tention only to the draft, which is
understandable. They received
the Nets’ first-round picks in
2014, 2016 and 2018 and swapped
picks in 2017, when they got the
No. 1 overall pick belonging to
the Nets.
“We haven’t thought about it a
ton,” Stevens said. “We’ve just
paid attention to what Kenny
and his staff and Sean have been
building, and they’ve done a
great job. They deserve a lot of
credit for that, and it started with
building a way of playing. You
can see it. It jumps off the TV
screen. I look at it more as what
they’ve accomplished in a short
amount of time.”
In that same vein, Atkinson
said he and Marks never have discussed how much that trade
helped the Celtics and damaged
the Nets. “We just kind of put it
in a box, and we never really talk
about it,” he said. “But I do love
the fact that it’s Brooklyn and
Boston. This is what the NBA is
all about. I hope we can improve
to where these games become
more and more meaningful as
we go down the line.”

and finished with five points.
Portland (24-17) was paced by
Jusuf Nurkic’s 20 points. CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard
each scored 17.
Dolan made his “no tanking”
comments in Las Vegas, where
the MSG executive chairman
and CEO watched the Rangers
practice before taking on the
Golden Knights Tuesday night.
Dolan was asked about all the
losing that is going on at the Garden (the Rangers are 17-17-7 and
have lost three in a row by a
combined score of 18-3). His answer included a hopeful portion
about Knicks forward Kevin
Knox, who recently was named
the Eastern Conference Rookie
of the Month for December.
“The key is you just want to
know your team’s getting better,” Dolan said. “You want to
know that the player’s executing better. You want to know
that he’s developing something.
“With kids, it’s all about the
development. And we got a kid,
one of our stars, the Knicks, the
kid called Kevin Knox — he
doesn’t turn 20 until [August].
That’s young. So you can’t
look at Kevin Knox and say,
‘That’s the player he’s going to
be.’ It’s totally not the case.
“Kevin Knox could be a really
great player. It depends on how
well he’s developed and how
much effort and what his level
of concentration is, etc. And
that’s what our guys work on.”
Knox, beset by early foul
woes on Monday, finished with
eight points in 22 minutes.
The Knicks struggled early in
each half. They didn’t score their
first points of the game until
Knox hit a pair of free throws
with 8:50 left in the first quarter
with the Knicks trailing 8-0.
Still, they rallied to take the
lead and ended the first quarter
tied at 30. They led for most of
the second quarter, but the Blazers took a 54-53 lead into halftime and scored the first nine
points of the third quarter to
take their first double-digit lead
at 63-53.
Portland went up by as much
as 18 in the third quarter and
brought an 86-76 lead to the
fourth. The Knicks got no closer
than 10 in the final quarter.
“The first five minutes of the
third quarter, we had a rough
start, 1-for-10, I think, to start
that quarter,” coach David Fizdale said. “Some tough shots in
there. Some real tough offensive
possessions, which allowed
them to really get to their game,
which is flying up the court,
putting a lot of pressure on you
with those two guards [Lillard
and McCollum].’’

PORTLAND, Ore. — As
much as the Knicks would like
it to end, the controversy over
Enes Kanter’s decision to not accompany the team to London
for its game against the Wizards
next week will not go away.
Kanter has been embroiled in
a dispute with the government
of his native Turkey and its president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan,
for some time. Last week, the
center said he will not travel to
London for the Jan. 17 game because “they’ve got a lot of spies
there. I think I can get killed
there easy. It would be a very
ugly situation.”
On Monday, former NBA
player Hedo Turkoglu, who
spent 15 seasons in the league
and is an adviser to Erdogan,
said on Twitter that Kanter’s
comments are part of a “political smear campaign.”
Kanter fired back by calling
Turkoglu a “lap dog” for Erdogan and posting a photo on
Twitter of what he said was his
U.S. passport in an effort to explain why he is not going to
London.
“This is my travel document,” Kanter wrote. “It’s
NOT a visa issue!!! I CAN go
to London. Either you are delusional, or still Erdogan’s lap
dog. Keep wagging your tail
@hidoturkoglu15.”
Kanter, whose Turkish passport was revoked by the country in 2017, has been and continues to be an outspoken
critic of the Erdogan regime.
He referred to Erdogan as
#DictatorErdogan in his Twitter post.
Knicks owner James Dolan
said on Monday that he thinks
Kanter’s fears about going to
London are “legitimate.”
“My folks tell me — I think
the people over there are assuring us, ‘There won’t be a problem, there won’t be a problem,’ ”
Dolan said in Las Vegas. “But if
I was him, I’d be concerned,
too. And I don’t blame him at
all.”
Dolan said he is “totally OK”
with Kanter missing the trip.

CAPTAIN NOW PART OF CREW
Wright becomes
special assistant
toWilpon,Brodie
BY STEVEN MARCUS
Captain David Wright is returning to the Mets — but in a
new job.
The team announced Monday that Wright will join the
front office as a special assistant to chief operating officer
Jeff Wilpon and general manager Brodie Van Wagenen.
The team also announced that
Wright, who has two years
and $27 million left on the
$138-million
contract
he
signed in November 2012, has
agreed to be released from
the 40-man roster.
“David Wright is an iconic
Met and will be forever remembered for his contributions on the field as well as
his numerous charitable endeavors,” Wilpon said in a
statement. “David attended
the recent winter meetings at
the suggestion of myself and
Brodie Van Wagenen where
he contributed throughout
with our baseball operations
group and wanted to pursue
this route. We are thrilled he
will remain close to the Mets
family and will be a great
asset in this new role.”
Wright, 36, is expected to be
involved in several different
facets of the organization.
Wright said in the statement: “I again want to thank
the Wilpon and [Saul] Katz
families for everything they
have done for myself and my
family. I will always be tremendously grateful for the way
the fans treated me, because
playing in this city and for
this team was a dream come
true. I look forward to contributing and taking on the
challenges of this new role.”
Last September, during
Wright’s final days as an active player because of numerous injuries, the third baseman said he would take some
time off to think about his
next move but indicated that

he wanted to remain in baseball.
“I’d love to stay involved,’’ he
told SNY at the time. “I love
being around the game. I obviously love the organization. So
I think I could provide value.”
Many former star players
have landed front-office or advisory roles with their teams. Reggie Jackson has had a long-term
position with the Yankees, for
whom Alex Rodriguez also is a
special adviser.
Terry Collins, Wright’s former manager and a special assistant to Van Wagenen, said
Wright is the perfect fit.
“He’s one of my favorite guys
that I’ve ever been around with
my whole life,’’ Collins said in a
phone interview. “I’m really
happy for him. This is just
going to give him something to
stay busy and stay involved in
the game that he loves. It’s
great. He takes the game seriously. David’s going to do a
great job.
“I saw him at the winter
meetings, I asked him what he
was going to do. He said, ‘I’m
not really sure yet,’ so I think
this is a great step for him. He’s
got something concrete and he
can sink his teeth into it and go
after it. There was probably a
part of him that knew his
chances of coming back were
thin. I just think this is another
avenue for him to go to make a
difference not only with the
Mets but in baseball.’’
Wright was limited to a
total of 77 games over the last
four seasons because of back,
neck and shoulder injuries.
He returned to the active roster last September and made
two appearances, one as a
pinch hitter. His final start at
third base on Sept. 29 essentially became David Wright

and, he said, received plenty of
interest. He chose the Yankees
because he wanted a landing
spot where he could play shortstop on a contender.
He also grew up idolizing the
shortstops of the American
League East, wearing numbers
for Derek Jeter, Nomar Garciaparra and Cal Ripken Jr. He
wore No. 2 throughout his major-league career, though obviously that won’t be an option in
the Bronx. (For that matter, neither will No. 5 nor No. 8.)
And after the uncertainty of
his role and his uniform number, there’s the biggest question
of all: Can Tulowitzki, who
missed the better part of two
seasons, reclaim some of his
past proficiency?
“I think I do need to catch up
as far as reps and see pitching
newsday.com
Troy Tulowitzki has made
something of a career out of
grappling with uncertainty.
There was the uncertainty of
the last two seasons, as ankle
problems and surgery on both
heels limited him to 66 games —
none last season — and put his
baseball future in jeopardy.
And now, despite the fact that
he’s slated to be the Yankees’
Opening Day shortstop, there is
uncertainty of a different kind:
What will happen to him when
Didi Gregorius comes back from
Tommy John surgery?
There also is a more timely
but far more hypothetical concern: What if the Yankees really
do sign Manny Machado? After
all, they still are interested in
him, according to a baseball
source, and he is said to be interested in them.
Tulowitzki’s answer? Well,
we’ll just have to wait and see.
All he knows is that he feels
good for the first time in a very
long time and thinks he can contribute. And hey, playing on a
team with Machado could be
kind of cool.
“I signed up to be a Yankee
because I wanted to play with
the best players, so if Manny is
one of those guys, I think that
would be awesome,” he said
Monday in a conference call
with reporters, adding that he
pays attention to the rumors. “I
definitely signed up for this to
help us win, so whatever happens happens, and I’ll be ready
to play when spring training
comes.”
As for Gregorius: “Whenever
that time comes up, then we’ll
deal with it then, but there’s no
sense in talking about that right
now.”
In a sense, he’s right. Gregorius’ timeline has him returning
at midseason, potentially as
late as August. For Tulowitzki,
that translates to three or so
months to show that he still has
high-level baseball left in him.
At 34, he’s on the waning
side of his career, but for the
Yankees, he’s a low-risk, highreward type of player. They
signed him to a one-year contract for the major-league minimum of $555,000, with his old
team, the Blue Jays, on the
hook for the rest of the $38

M
ike Nicolia is
nervous, but
excited. The
24-year-old from
West Islip is
about to deliver a stand-up set
during open mic night at The
Brokerage Comedy Club in
Bellmore. He works as a
construction manager by day,
but nights are reserved for his
passion: Comedy.
“Telling jokes is like cliff
jumping. If you don’t jump far
enough, you could fall into the
pit. But if you overstep it,
there’s no excitement,” says
Nicolia. “When you deliver a
joke, there has to be a certain
beat and pattern when you
land your punchline.”
Stand-up comedy has been
around for decades, but the
genre keeps getting hotter.
Netflix is on a spree of
streaming new comedy
specials from the likes of Ellen
DeGeneres and Trevor Noah,
while Amazon’s original show,
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”
— which dropped its second
season last month — features a
female stand-up from the late
1950s. On Long Island, affection endures for native comics
Jerry Seinfeld, Rosie
O’Donnell, Billy Crystal, Eddie
Murphy and Kevin James. Live
comedy is now a draw at
concert venues, including The
Paramount in Huntington,
which has a series of
headliners booked for 2019.
“One third of our
programming is comed related.
It’s become an important part
of what we are offering,” says
Adam Ellis, director of
marketing at The Paramount,
where comedian Jim Breuer,
who grew up in Valley Stream,
is entering his second year in
residency. “The production
cost is much less than what a
major music concert tour with
multiple bands would be.”

pictures to make that personal
connection,” says Maniscalco,
45. “When I’d come back a
year later, the same people
brought their mother and
father. It exponentially grew
from there because I was
speaking their language.”
Bethpage comedian John
Ziegler, who opened for
Maniscalco at Governor’s, now
tours around the country and
hosts the Brokerage’s monthly
open mic night.
“I was petrified when I first
started comedy. It would have
been very easy for me to just
quit,” Ziegler says. “But the
Long Island comedians were
nice, helpful and supportive. I
remember that when I work
with newer comics.”
Comedian Michele Fox, 49,
of Melville took a class at the
Brokerage called Stand-Up
University three years ago and
has been developing her skills
ever since. A mother of three,
Fox spends her day taking care
of her family. But at night, she
ventures out to grab some
stage time.
“I learned to make my first
joke one of the strongest
because once you get a big
laugh, then you can exhale,”
Fox says. “Now I look for the
funny in every situation, and
that’s a great way to live.”
New comedian Mary
Capone, 47, of Farmingdale
goes for the self-deprecating
approach (from family

dynamics to illness), which she
feels makes her relatable to the
crowd. “Instead of crying about it, I
make jokes,” she says. “It helps me
find joy, because I get a thrill when
I make people laugh.”
me, and I embrace them back. I just
want to speak my truth and make
everybody laugh.”
Although he has been at it for
only a year, Brown knows how to
handle himself onstage, especially
when things go south.
“Everybody has bombed,” he
says. “The key is to slow down. If
you rush, you tend to leave things
out of the joke.”

Performing stand-up can be
tricky business in the current
politically correct social climate.
Most comics steer clear of blue
material, sans a few curses.
“People are very afraid to offend
anybody these days, and I think it’s
really hurting comedy,”
DiDomenico says. “Comedy is the
art form where you can say
whatever’s on your mind. It’s all
just a joke.”
The Brokerage’s open mic night
runs on the second Friday of the
month. To get stage time, roughly
seven minutes, comics must bring
six people, who pay a $12 cover
plus a two-item minimum.
“I have some friends that are
super-supportive about it,” Nicolia
says. “They want to help and watch
me succeed.”
Long Island comics say there’s a
strong sense of camaraderie among
them.
“We talk all the time, give each
other advice and get each other
gigs,” DiDomenico says.
Very often, the gang will hit a
diner after a show where they
discuss the evening’s activities.
“Everybody tells stories about
their experiences onstage,” Fox
says. “It’s the best part.”
newsday.com
But what’s causing this current
comedy boom? Many cite social
media as the main driver.
“The fear of performing stand-up
comedy is dissipating,” says
Brokerage co-owner James Dolce.
“Social media has made it more
relaxed for people to get onstage
because they are regularly posting
clips that hundreds, sometimes
thousands, of people watch.”
For nine-year comedian Anthony
DiDomenico, 39, of Bellmore, the
computer screen is not a
replacement for the stage. “You can
make a funny video, but you don’t
hear any laughter,” DiDomenico
says. “There’s nothing like being in
front of a crowd, saying something
you wrote and them laughing as a
result. It’s an indescribable feeling.”
Veteran comics come by the
open mic night to inject some
seasoned comedy to the show and
work out new material.
“I stunk for five years,” recalls
Carie Karavas, 53, of Bethpage, who
has been on the local circuit for 30
years. “Once your confidence level
comes across to the crowd, then
they are with you, and your nerves
go away.”
Newbie comic Sean Brown, 27, of
Uniondale projects an energy
onstage that includes a big smile
and kind demeanor.
“Being a young black comic, I
bring a different perspective,”
Brown says. “Long Island embraces

WHAT Mixcder E7 active noisecanceling headphones
WHAT THEY DO These ergonomically designed over-the-ear hi-fi
stereo headphones not only provide great sound, but also block
out external noise.
COST $59.99
AVAILABLE FROM mixcder.com
WHAT’S HOT When you look at
the features inside these Bluetooth headphones, including
swiveling, comfortably padded
ear cups supporting 40-mm driver
units and an adjustable headband,
your first thought will be that
they seem fancier and more expensive than they actually are.
Regardless of what they look like,
the sound is what’s critical, and
they deliver at all levels, along with
a powerful deep bass sound.
With the active noise canceling,
the Mixcder E7 uses technology
that continuously analyzes and
reacts to outside noise, blocking
external sound by creating inverse
waves for totally immersive music.
Inside is a rechargeable battery
that should give you about 20 hours
of use before a USB charge is
needed. There’s also a built-in
microphone for hands-free phone
calls. A direct wired connection can
be made with the 3-mm audio port.
As if the price weren’t already
fantastic, a compact carrying case
is included.
WHAT’S NOT Some people might
find the earphones a bit on the
bulky side and, like most headphones of this kind, can become
sweaty after wearing them for an
extended time. Still, these are
easily the most solidly designed
noise-canceling earphones you’ll
find at such a fantastic price.

rowing up, Emily
German looked up to
her mother as a
fierce role model
who effortlessly
juggled family, friends and a
successful career.
In the 1980s and ’90s, Linda
Larsen German had worked
her way up the corporate
ladder in Manhattan, helping
to grow the Liz Claiborne
business into a Fortune 500
company before leaving to
start her own ventures. She
was a natural-born leader
with a quick mind.
“She was such a tough,
powerful, strong woman. That
is 100 percent how I viewed
her my entire life,” said Emily,
24, a software sales representative who lives in New Orleans.
“It was really because of my
mom’s bright personality that
we caught on to her disease so
quickly.”
In 2012, Emily and other
family members noticed a shift
in Linda’s behavior. At age 61,
she began to show uncharacteristic signs of confusion,
agitation and restlessness. In
early 2014, at age 62, Linda was
diagnosed with early-onset
Alzheimer’s disease.
Soon after, Emily began to
notice an odd cyclical pattern
to her mother’s behavior. As
day turns to night, Linda
becomes more disoriented,
irritable and upset. “She’s
more likely to repeat herself,
have mood swings and get
frustrated,” Emily said. “If
she’s in a new place during the
late afternoon, she’ll get really
confused and want to go
home.”
Linda is one of millions
worldwide who experience a
clinical phenomenon called
sundowning, typically seen in
people suffering from dementia or cognitive impairment.
Also known as sundown
syndrome, sundowning refers
to the emergence or worsening of neuropsychiatric symptoms such as agitation, aggression and disorientation in the

late afternoon or early
evening. Like some sort of
spell has been cast, their behavior can switch from normal to
highly erratic come nightfall.
‘STARK CONTRAST’
“It can be a pretty stark
contrast from day to night. We
have to deal with this a lot in
nursing homes, and it’s not
uncommon for patients who
have been having a good day
to suddenly believe it’s time to
go home,” said David Trinkle,
associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral medicine
at Virginia Tech, who has
treated Alzheimer’s patients
for almost 30 years. “That’s
when you’ll see patients try to
leave the facility, and they will
get extremely aggressive with
screaming behavior. I’ve had
patients frequently call 911.”
Studies on prevalence rates
show large variability, depending on the setting and population, but sundowning has been
observed in 10 to 25 percent of
those with moderate to severe
dementia in nursing homes
and up to 66 percent of people
with Alzheimer’s living at
home. The cause of sundowning remains a mystery. Some
physicians believe it has to do
with lowered visibility that
comes with darkness and
shadows, or in some cases the
shift change of hospital staff
that happens around late
afternoon. More recent research suggests it could be
related to a disruption of the
brain’s internal master clock,
which prompts the emergence
of behavior disturbances at
sunset.
No cure exists for sundowning. But experts say there are
ways that providers and caregivers can help sufferers feel
more at ease when darkness
sets in.
‘GIVE THEM SLEEP’
David Scales, an assistant
professor at Weill Cornell
Medicine who has written
about his experience with
sundowning patients, said the
best medicine is prevention:
keeping them awake and
active during the day and then
making sure they get a good
night’s sleep, if possible.
Creating a conducive sleep
environment is important.
“Try to give them [sleep
aids] that are more natural, like
melatonin, since sleep medications like Ambien that younger
people might use can actually
exacerbate delirium in elderly
people,” Scales said. “There
have been times where I’ve
literally given patients a Tums,
a glass of milk and tucked
them in real nice to help them
get into that bedtime routine.”
Sticking to a routine is key
for many Alzheimer’s patients.
When they aren’t at the
house, Emily and her father
have a caregiver come in at
the same time every day to
take Linda, now 67, to the park
with her dog and the nearby
beach to watch the waves. Her
best time is in the middle of
the day, from about 11 a.m. to
2 p.m., so that is when she’ll
be active outside the house
and also see visitors.

Butcocaine, a stimulant that had been
waning in popularity, made acomeback.The
drugwas the second-or third-most-common
causeof overdose deaths everyyear, and the
numberof overdose deaths from cocaine
nearly doubled from 2014 to2016.
Overall, fatal overdoses have reached
record levels in the United States; more
than 70,000 people died of drug overdoses in 2017, according to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
The data also show that methamphetamine, a stimulant, also is becoming
more popular. Use of meth declined after
authorities cracked down on illegal labs
where the drug was manufactured and as the
government made it more difficult to purchase large quantities of pseudoephedrine,
an over-the-counter decongestant that can
be used to make meth.
But Mexican cartels started manufacturing the drug, pushing its availability on the
black market. The number of overdose
deaths involving meth increased from
1,887 in 2011 to 6,762 in 2016.
Researchers found that most overdose
deaths involved users who had ingested
JAMES CARBONE
plus
more than one drug. People who overdosed
from benzodiazepines, which are used to
treat anxiety, had other drugs in their system
96 percent of the time. The combination of
benzodiazepines and opioids can shut down
the respiratory system. Seventy-four percent
of cocaine users had one or more additional
drugs in their system when they died, as did
half of meth users.
One of the factors in multidrug overdoses has been the inclusion of fentanyl in
the mix: It is becoming increasingly
common for drug dealers to cut fentanyl
into other drugs, a relatively inexpensive
way to dramatically increase the potency
of other opioids. And some of the nation’s
cocaine supply also includes fentanyl.
Fentanyl is so potent that just a few grains
can kill a person, especially if the user
does not regularly use opioids.
Nearly 70 percent of fatal fentanyl
overdoses involved one or more drugs, as
did 71 percent of fatal heroin overdoses,
according to the report.

HER STORY
Tara Whaley says she was diagnosed
in her mid-20s with an underactive
thyroid and also had trouble losing
weight after each of her two pregnancies. “I was so wrapped up with my
kids, I didn’t give myself any attention.”
When she saw herself in a photo from
Christmas 2017, she decided to join
Weight Watchers. “I had a friend on the
program and saw her success. She’s lost
more than 100 pounds and has been my
inspiration,” says Whaley.
She says at first she did a web-only
membership but ended up going to
meetings to be held accountable. Whaley says she found the allotted points
program and list of zero-point foods
easy to work with. “I lost 18 pounds the
first month and lose between 3 and 7
pounds a month now, depending on
how rigid I am. But when I focus, the
weight loss is there,” Whaley says.
She’s learned a few tricks, like using
ground turkey in meatloaf or substituting Greek yogurt for mayonnaise,
Whaley says. She also likes the
skinnytaste.com blog for recipe ideas.
“The recipes are geared to a healthier
lifestyle. They’re delicious, and my
family likes them. My husband has
actually lost about 20 pounds since I
started,” says Whaley, who now wears a
size 14, a size she says she hadn’t worn
since getting married.

HER DIET
Whaley says breakfast is a piece of
fruit or an egg, along with a Premier
NEWSDAY / JOHN PARASKEVAS
AFTER
Protein shake from Costco mixed with
a cup of black coffee. Lunch can be
turkey on a whole-wheat wrap with
lettuce and mayonnaise or a green salad
with light dressing. Dinner is often
chicken breast and roasted vegetables.
“I love ice cream, so I eat Enlightened
brand ice cream,” Whaley says.
HER EXERCISE
When she started the program, Whaley says, she would walk the Long
Beach boardwalk three or four times a
week, getting 4 miles in each visit.
During the summer, she did at-home
workouts using Weight Watcher DVDs
and a twist board. “If I got to it, I got to
it. I wasn’t strict. But now I want to get
more serious because I want to tone
and build muscle,” she says.
HER ADVICE
“If I had known how easy this program is, I would have done it a long
time ago. The program works if you
work it. It’s about tracking your food.
You have to get into the mindset of this
being something for you. And once you
commit, you can do anything.”

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr. 19): Your home will be a place of
peace and tranquility if you are more considerate.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Attitudes change over
time. Your patience will attract new admirers.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Avoid the urge to tinker
with finances as conditions will quickly change.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Let go of grudges. For better or worse, holding animosity toward someone for a
past deed ultimately does you no good.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There’s no shame in changing
your mind. Try to be more objective.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A simple gift that is either
given or received could ultimately hold lasting sentimental value regarding a significant other.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22.): Don’t waste time lamenting
over how much better things could be.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Those who forget the
mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You shouldn’t
become too enamored with a pretty face as you may
soon find that there’s not much else to see.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A friend’s advice could

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): You can’t defy authority, but
you can show them the error of their ways by demonstrating a much better method of getting things done.

It is where we post videos of

throughout the school year.
We start making videos for
Oysterponds TV in third

videos about animals, people
in history, states, countries
and surveys. Sometimes we
make videos just for fun, like
challenges, more surveys,
and book reviews and trailers.
Oysterponds TV is good
because you learn how to
plan ahead, work with others
and be responsible by getting
a video finished and on time.
You also learn how to work

Black moves.
Hint: Black forces
mate.
Even Magnus Carlsen is fallible.
The world chess champion from Norway
started not as bombshell, but as a dud, in
the recent World Rapid Championships in St.
Petersburg, Russia, by losing three of his first
eight games.
“I played like a crow,” he said at a news
conference.
This display of self-deprecation inspired the
English grandmaster Nigel Short to tweet, “It
is a sign of a truly great player when he can
play like total crap (by his lofty standards) and
still be only half a point off the lead, with five
games remaining.”
In rapid play, each person has 15 minutes for
the entire game and 10-second increments for
each move. The winner was Russian prodigy
Daniil Dubov; Carlsen was fifth. Ju Wenjun of
China was the women’s champion.
Carlsen was back in form at the same venue
a few days later when he went undefeated to
win the blitz championship, a super form of
fast chess. Kateryna Lagno of Russia was the
women’s blitz champion.
Carlsen remains as mysterious as ever.
Sometimes he seems like a superior breed
of player, as if from outer space, with an
exceptional chess-sensitive DNA.
Why not?

Can he do the shopping on the
way home from work, or stay
home with the kids while you
shop? Or do you have a friend
with kids your age who will
trade sits with you?
“If those options are untenable, my recommendation is to
try to go to the store as early
as humanly possible, when the
kids haven’t started to melt
down yet. Bring bribes/snacks/
distractions that you only pull
out once you’re at the store,
including a device if you have
to. Hang in there, mom.”
I’d also recommend some
old-fashioned emotional manipulation. You should play hard
to get, by “refusing” to take
your youngest shopping. You
get a sitter or a friend to watch
him. Tell him, “Well, I’d like to
bring you with us, but I guess
you’re not quite old enough.
You don’t know how to behave
in the store.” You take the
oldest child with you. You and
the older sibling return, having
had a couple of adventures
(you discover artichokes, for
instance). Younger child will
beg to go with you. He will
promise to be good. And you’ll
respond, “Well, I don’t know if
you’re ready. I’ll think about it.”

DEAR AMY: I have a 3-year-old
and a 5-year-old. My 3-year-old son
really acts out when I take him
shopping. I find it very stressful and
hard to control him. He screams,
kicks and bites me when I try to
keep him in the cart. If I let him
down, he runs and hides from me.
Do you recommend any tactics on
how to handle this? My husband
works a lot so I don’t have much
choice but to bring my kids along.

DEAR FRAZZLED: I shared your

and, like you, mother of two
young children. She responds:
“Second-born 3-year-old boys
are the number one cause of
gray hair, at least in my home.
“The ideal solution is to get
out of shopping with the kids, or
at least the youngest. If you can,
throw a bit of money at the
problem — ordering groceries
online, or hiring a baby-sitter for
an hour so you can shop solo.
“Also, talk to your husband.

We rescued our golden Labs
Q
— a 6-year-old brother and
sister — three months ago, and
they are great fun and just the
best. However, they have horrible
breath. Despite giving them a
‘’greenie’’ breath biscuit a day, it is
still bad. We know and have kept
other dogs and have never had
complaints like we have with
Cookie and Clancy. We do not
feed them junk food or food from
the table. Our vet is stumped, too.
Do you have any ideas?
— Jo and Doug,
Yorkville, Illinois
A
Bad breath can be a sign
of several diseases, from
stomach problems to diabetes
and kidney disease, but the
main culprit is often poor
oral hygiene. In fact, periodontal disease may be seen
in dogs and cats as young as
3 years old.
Have Cookie and Clancy’s
teeth cleaned, and then brush
their teeth a few times a week
with a toothbrush and doggy
toothpaste to reduce tartar and
plaque buildup. There also are
some great products like dental
chews, breath fresheners
(sprays and treat bites), even
some probiotics that can help
maintain good oral hygiene. You
can go old school and give them
carrots, since it can help reduce
plaque build-up, and add some
chopped parsley to their food to
freshen their breath.
We’re having a huge problem
Q
with our cat. We bought a
new bed a few months ago, and
she has peed on it five times. My
poor husband washes the sheets
and mattress covers, and we get
the quilt cleaned. We had no choice
but to keep her out of the room
unless one of us is in bed. This has
gone on for a couple of months.
She was very unhappy, and so were
we and our dog. We gave in, and
that night she did it again. She has
never peed on anything else. Any
insight would help.

If you aren’t extracting
every molecule of urine out
of the mattress, sheets and quilt,
your cat will return to the same
spot to urinate — no matter
how much time has passed.
Purchase an enzymatic
cleaner at the pet store or
online to clean your mattress.
An enzymatic cleaner “eats
up” biologicals like urine and
poop, thus eliminating any
residual odors. These cleaners
work only when wet, so you
may need to wet the mattress
and put a wet towel over the
spot to activate. Repeat the
process until the area is completely neutralized.
Washing sheets is not
enough. Soak the sheets and
quilt in the enzymatic cleaner
before washing them. (Test it
on a corner of fabrics first.)
Some enzymatic cleaners can
be added directly to your
washing machine, so check
products for more information.
Make sure the quilt is cleaned
and not dry cleaned. Dry cleaning can leave subtle odors that
a cat may want to cover up
with urine.
Finally, when everything is
clean, spray your bed, sheets
and quilt with feline
pheromones and/or put a
feline plug-in pheromone near
your bed. You won’t smell the
pheromones, but she can, and
it may calm her and prevent
her from urinating in your
room again.
We have a 3 / -year-old
Q
Labradoodle named Rocco.
He is basically a good dog, but he
1
2
has a bad habit we can’t seem to
break. He constantly steals stuff —
socks, clothing, paper, anything he
can get his paws on — and chews
them and sometimes even swallows them. He even vomits stuff
up sometimes. We have tried
everything, including hiring a
professional dog trainer who was
quite expensive. Nothing has
worked. Can you please give us
some advice?
— Frustrated Dog Owner,
Allentown, Pennsylvania
A
Your dog sounds curious
and smart. Keep training
him as much as possible.
Trained dogs often behave
better overall because the
training engages and keeps
their minds busy.
Next, pet proof your house, as
if he is a puppy. Put clothing in
the hamper, papers in drawers,
books on shelves, shoes in closets, etc. I know you can’t secure
everything, but secure as much
as possible to remove temptation.
Finally, buy him puzzle toys.
Start with simple toys like a
Kong Wobbler and work your
way up to more challenging
puzzle toys that will engage
more of his brain. When he has
a puzzle toy that dispenses
treats, he will more likely
forget about the socks and
paper. By training and engaging him in the right activities
every day, he will stay engaged
and eventually lose interest in
the “nonrewarding activities.”

OH, BABY Chumley the English bulldog is sitting pretty in
the baby swing at home in Patchogue last month. The
rescue dog passed away soon after this photo was taken.
RAISE YOUR PAWS Zucca, Italian for pumpkin, was found
as a kitten 16 years ago in October in the garden — hence her
name. The calico is a polydactyl, with extra toes on her paws.
CAT SITTING Sylvester appears refined now, but it took
time to socialize him and his brother Skeeter, who were feral
when they were found in their humans’ yard in 2017.

just drift away and disappear
forever, leaving Lindsay alone
with her hotel balance sheets.
Sounds boring but beats the
alternative. Besides, we’re sick
of being Lindsay voyeurs, right?
Time for us to move on.
Now, the review part: The
show’s not very good. It’s dull,
derivative and peopled with a
cast shrewd enough to know
exactly where the camera is and
how to perform for it.” “Mic
drop! Mic drop!” says one cast
member to another, in a madefor-and-by TV put-down. The
bodies are well tanned and
gleaming, the booze is flowing.
You suspect — no, you know the
hookups are coming. It’s a
tawdry bit of the Hamptons
splattered on a beach in Greece.
But in that dullness may be
both cloud and silver lining.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT Along with
her business and creative partner, Panos Spentzos, Lindsay
Lohan has been working to build
her own brand of hotels and
clubs in Greece — notably the
Lohan Nightclub in Athens and
Lohan Beach House in Rhodes.
For this latest launch on
Mykonos, she and Spentzos hire
“ambassadors” from the States
who will tend to guests, which
means getting them to buy
drinks and spend lots of money.
They’re a bunch of spirited,
hard-drinking hard bodies, and
it’s up to Lindsay to keep them
in line. Will she? (Can she?)
This is set in Mykonos, the
program explains, because
Lohan — now 32 — was
physically assaulted here by her
ex-boyfriend three years ago:
“Instead of getting angry, I said
I’m going to own this beach
someday,” she says, “because I
want everyone to feel safe.”
This is Lohan’s second unscripted series — the first, “Lindsay,” aired on OWN in 2014.
MY SAY There are lots of reasons to want both her club and
“Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club” to
succeed, but this is a review, not
a listicle, so let’s settle for just
one. A success, conceivably,
means Lohan can finally say
goodbye to all that — all the
baggage and troubles, the
tabloids and paps, and the
assorted creeps who have made
a living sponging off her. They

Lohan is the resident adult here
— the sparkly attired kindergarten teacher in flowing Greek
chiton who stands bestride the
unruly toddlers. “They’re representing the Lohan Beach
House,” she glowers at pilot’s
end, “so get ready for boss
bitch!” It’s an unintentionally
funny line because everyone —
Lohan included — knows the
roles have been reversed. It’s like
“Freaky Friday: The Greek
Beach House” edition.
Nevertheless, she makes a
game effort to do her Kardashian best. She alludes to the
“Lohan brand,” as if the hosts are
expected to hawk a line of Lohan
hair-care products along with
the mai tais.
Meanwhile, Lohan never lifts
a drink herself — she’s insisted
in recent interviews that she’s
maintained her sobriety. She
also scolds a host for wearing a
bra at their first meeting: “When
you meet your boss, don’t show
up in a bra. It’s not appropriate.
It’s like me going to meet Steven
Spielberg in a bra and wet hair
with wet bikini shorts. It’s impossible!”
In fact, it is possible and
maybe once even happened. But
that’s the distant past — thank
goodness — and this is the
present, maybe future. Lohan as
hotelier and kindergarten
teacher and reality TV show
boss appears serious this time,
and finally ready to grow up.
Here’s hoping, anyway.
BOTTOM LINE “Real Housewives” meets “Temptation
Island” with a welcome twist
— Lohan is more or less the
mature presence.

ody image is how you perceive
yourself, whether you are looking
in a mirror or examining a photo
of yourself.
The National Eating Disorders
Association (NEDA) says body image
encompasses how you feel about your
height, weight and shape, as well as
how you feel physically in your body.
A healthy body image can foster your
mental wellbeing, while negative thoughts
about your appearance can lead to
depression, low self-esteem and an
obsession with weight loss, says NEDA.
WOMEN and MEN IN PURSUIT OF
PERFECTION
Studies show that Americans’
preoccupation with physical beauty is
linked to the infinite barrage of social
media images, which oftentimes portray
manufactured perfection. Yet, society’s
view of what the ideal body image
should be has skewed over the years.
As far back as 2003, an article in
“Paediatrics & Child Health” noted, “Over
time the cultural ideal for women’s
body size and shape has become
considerably thinner and leaner and
men’s body size and shape has become
stronger and more muscular.”

NIX THE NEGATIVITY
“Love yourself.
Be confident.
Give yourself
a compliment.”
- Amanda Reichardt, RDN, CPT
If your goal is to start the New Year
on a healthy note with a nutritionally
balanced diet and a sensible physical
fitness plan, you’ve got to get your head
into it first, says Amanda Reichardt,
a registered dietitian nutritionist who
counsels clients at Long Island Fitness
& Wellness in Commack.
“If you love yourself and accept
yourself you will be more likely to achieve
your goals,” says Reichardt.
Having a positive body image and
embracing your uniqueness can help
reduce depression and disordered eating,
Reichardt explains. In her previous
position as Campus Dietitian at Stony
Brook University she offered nutritional
counseling to students. Much to her
dismay, females as well as males would
show her Instagram images of celebrities
and others as incentive to lose weight
and shape up. “These [photo editing]

set unrealistic standards, especially for
younger girls and boys.”
Those closest to us may also contribute
to body negativity, she says. “When we
look in the mirror and say, ‘oh, my arms
are fat,’ kids pick that up. They are like
sponges.” And, if we berate ourselves
about eating a piece of cake, it causes
negative associations with food, says
Reichardt, who describes herself as
the “anti-diet dietitian.”
“One set diet does not work for the
whole population.”
FIVE SMART GOALS
Reichardt believes making permanent
lifestyle changes is a more efficient way of
achieving your goals. “Ninety-five percent
of my clients who go on a cold turkey diet
fail,” she says. Here, some of Reichardt’s
“realistically achievable goals.”
1. Combine 150 minutes of moderate
intensity exercise per week with a sound
nutritional plan. And, keep in mind that
nutrition plays a larger part in reaching
your goals than exercise as we spend
more time during the day eating than we
do exercising.
2. You need to eat. Don’t focus on
counting calories. Look at portion sizes.
3. Drink a lot of water and fill half of
your plate with fruits and starchy
vegetables. Include whole grains at
each meal too.
4. Eat lean proteins. Ask yourself: does
it swim or fly? Then it’s a lean protein.
5. Get eight hours of sleep.
To nurture a positive body image,
Reichardt says, “Love yourself.
Be confident. Give yourself a compliment.
SIGNS OF AN UNHEALTHY
BODY IMAGE
Do you:
• View yourself only in terms of
how you look?
• Compare how you look with
people on TV or in magazines?
• Use negative words to describe
your body?
• Get depressed or sad about
how you look?
• Constantly think about ways to
improve your body or looks?

When is the right time for a hearing evaluation?
Probably sooner than you think
By OTO Healthcare - Suffolk
A
s the old story goes, there’s good
news and bad news about hearing
loss. The good news is that the
human brain is amazingly good at
adapting to many different kinds of obstacles,
including things like hearing loss.
You may be suffering from slight decline
right now and be hardly aware of it, because
you’ve found ways to compensate—simple
things like turning your head and leaning
forward to hear better; or asking people to
repeat what they’ve said; or waiting for the
conversation to move on so you can catch up.
Maybe you’re adapting by simply avoiding
social situations like noisy restaurants and
parties, where the background noise makes
it so hard to understand the conversation
that you really have to strain to hear.
Know what you’re missing
So what’s the bad news? You may be
adapting so well that you don’t know what
you’re missing. You’re unaware of lost
People with advanced hearing loss
describe this state as a feeling of isolation,
of being trapped. They find it physically
and emotionally tiring to strain to hear a
conversation in a noisy setting. It’s just too
hard to make the effort. So they give up.
Break through the isolation with
new hearing technology
There is help for people with hearing loss:
a wonderful array of modern hearing solutions
that can make it easier to break through the
wall of noise and focus on what’s important.
Modern hearing technology can not only help
bring you back to a fuller and more vibrant
social life; it can make things like concerts,
radio, telephone, and TV much more
rewarding experiences than ever before. But
what happens is that people tend to put off
getting help later than they should. They
Don’t let old myths about
hearing aids delay your chance
at a fuller life
There are a variety of reasons that people
put off getting help. The main one is a lack
of understanding of what modern hearing
technology is and how it helps. We’ve found
that there are at least three big myths that
keep people from trying out hearing
technology, putting them on the road to
years of frustration and isolation instead of
a happier life.

hearing loss, the condition progresses as
you get older. And as it progresses, you
work harder to cope, maybe without even
realizing it. As good as your brain may be

e all wish we could turn back time
and recapture our youthful curves
and figure. The marriage of
liposuction and abdominoplasty can be a
wonderful thing to do just that.
Liposuction in anyone older than 30 is
likely to leave loose skin, no matter what
technique is used. However, when it is
combined with an abdominoplasty, an
amazing transformation can be seen. A high
lateral tension abdominoplasty combined with
liposuction, improves bra rolls and tightens
your thighs, both inner and outer, all through
a single abdominoplasty incision. The results
will be obvious from both the front and back.
Add a breast reduction or breast lift
(with or without implants) and a youthful
appearance is enhanced even more. A
common misconception with the breast lift
or reduction, is that an anchor incision
(two incision technique) is necessary for
larger breasts. This is not accurate; a lollipop
incision can always be used. You will no
longer be limited to a clothing style in order
to hide the scar. The single scar technique
(lollipop incision) gives a more pleasing,
youthful and perky shape to your breasts.
Patients who combined both procedures
typically resulted in a drop of 2 to 4 dress
sizes (see gregorydevita.com).

“It is a very exciting time in the field
of glaucoma,” says Dr. Robert Honkanen,
chairman of the department of ophthalmology
at Stony Brook Medicine. Honkanen said that
two new eyedrops to treat glaucoma became
available this year, and that there are more
promising treatments on the horizon.
Honkanen added, “When patients fail
medical therapy, many new minimally invasive
glaucoma surgeries are available.”
Who Gets Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is an umbrella term for a group
of diseases that damage the eye’s optic nerve,
resulting in gradual vision loss and blindness,
according to medical experts.
Anyone can get glaucoma, including infants
and small children. The risk of developing
glaucoma increases with age, says Dr. Sung
Chul (Sean) Park, associate professor of
ophthalmology at the Zucker School of
Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell and director
of Glaucoma Research at Manhattan Eye,
Ear and Throat Hospital. The Glaucoma
Research Foundation estimates that three
million Americans currently have glaucoma,
but only half know they have it. Park says that
African Americans are more likely to suffer
from the most common form of the disease
than other Americans.
Glaucoma usually occurs when fluid builds
up in the front part of the eye, increasing the
pressure in the eye, and damaging the optic
2145002501
nerve, which connects the eye with the brain
and transmits visual information, Park says.
Other medical conditions also can cause
glaucoma, including diabetes, diseases of
the retina’s blood vessels, inflammation
inside the eye, trauma and anti-inflammatory
medications such as steroids, Honkanen says.
Screening for Glaucoma
Glaucoma often has no symptoms, although
patients may sometimes see rainbow-colored
circles around bright lights, or have hazy or
blurred vision, Park says.
Diagnosis requires “a complete and
thorough eye exam,” says Honkanen. He said
that after the patient’s risk factors for
glaucoma are evaluated, tests for the
condition include measuring the pressure
inside the eyeball, assessing the drainage
tissue of the eye and checking the optic
nerve for changes. Additional testing can
determine if peripheral vision has been lost,
a sign of glaucoma, according to the
Glaucoma Research Foundation.
Although there is currently no cure, with
treatment and regular check-ups, vision loss
can be slowed or prevented, “especially if
you catch the disease in its early stages,”
Park says.
Current treatments include prescription
eye drops, oral medications, laser treatment
and surgery, to lower the pressure inside the
eye below the level causing vision loss.
“All current FDA approved treatments for
glaucoma are effective,” Honkanen says.
“Most patients can find a regimen or
treatment that works adequately for them
without negatively impacting their lives.”

By The Popper Dental Team
aintaining your natural bone is one
of the most important advantages
of dental implants.
With missing teeth, the bone begins to
resorb over time. Significant bone loss can
shrink the contours of the jawbone, causing
wrinkled lips and a sunken mouth and chin.
Dental implants can help counteract that
by preventing resorption of the jawbone,
stimulating bone growth and stopping
bone loss.
Dental Implant Checklist…..What
are the benefits?
• Enjoy better health through renewed
eating habits.
• Talk, laugh and smile without worrying,
with new teeth that are firmly supported
and feel just like your natural teeth.
• Return to simple oral hygiene with no
soaking or adhesives.
• Live without gum irritation or mouth pain.
• Recover your natural smile and all the
confidence behind it.
• Regain full function without damaging
your healthy teeth.
• Anyone who is missing one or several
teeth because of injury, disease, tooth
decay or deficient dental care, is a
candidate for dental implants.

HOW MUCH WATER
SHOULD WE DRINK
EACH DAY?
Drink fluids when you’re thirsty, and —
with some exceptions — you should be fine.
Up your fluid intake if you’re exercising, if
the weather is hot or humid, if you’re sick,
or if you’re pregnant or breast-feeding.
Experts don’t seem to completely agree
on how much water is enough. There is
a cute little way to remember a basic
formula of 8 times 8, which means
drink an 8-ounce glass of water
8 times a day.
Source: mayoclinic.org, drcatherineprice.com
“Children are at greater risk
of dehydration than adults,
requiring six to eight glasses of
water daily in addition to the
water present in their food.”
Drink Water
THE HUMAN BODY: JUSTADD WATER!
The next time you see a glass of water, take a closer look. H2O is you — or at
least a whole lot of you. As much as 60 percent of the human body is water.
That’s a whole lot of water, and it does a whole lot of things. Here are just a few:
Water keeps our bodies from overheating, lubricates our joints, helps us get rid
of waste and feeds our very cells.
We need water to live, so drink up!

Think beyond slices of lemon or lime. You can also use slices of strawberries,
oranges, melons, watermelon, etc.
3. If you’re trying to wean your kids off of juice, consider watering it
down as a first step.

There are plenty of healthy ways to add fluids
to your diet. Bottled or tap water, unsweetened
beverages like coffee and iced tea, and even
fruits and vegetables can boost your intake.
Here’s what all that liquid can do for you:
BOOSTYOUR
ENERGY
Dehydration makes people feel more
fatigued, and it may decrease alertness and
concentration levels. If you do any activity that makes you
sweat, you need to drink extra water to cover the fluid loss.
It’s important to drink water before, during and after a workout.
If exercise is intense and lasts more than an hour, a sports drink
can replace minerals in your blood (electrolytes) lost through sweat.

Water may also help
with weight loss, if it
is consumed instead
of sweetened juices and
sodas. “Preloading” with
water before meals can help
prevent overeating by creating
a sense of fullness. Water aides
in the removal of fat by-products,
has zero calories, and not only does
this act as a natural appetite
suppressant, but it can also
improve your metabolism.
Preliminary research suggests that boosting water
intake can be a helpful treatment for some people
who have headaches.

H E A LT H T I P S
DRINK UP!
HERE’S 5 TERRIFIC
HYDRATION TIPS
Making a habit of hydration isn’t always
easy. Here are some convenient ways to
keep yourself hydrated all day long:
Bring a bottle of water with you
wherever you go — in your car,
at work, on the run (and, if you’re a
jogger, while you’re running!). Keep
your water cool all day by freezing it
in a freezer-safe bottle.
1
Increase your fluid intake during
meals by taking sips between
bites from a glass of water, milk,
or juice. Ask for water instead of a
soft drink when you eat out.
2
Cartilage, found in joints and the
disks of the spine, contains around
80 percent water. Long-term
dehydration can reduce the joints’
shock-absorbing ability, leading to
joint pain. Proper hydration helps keep
eep
joints lubricated and muscles more
elastic so joint pain is less likely.
6.
COOL
YOU
DOWN
Humans need to take in as many
as 6 liters of fluid a day when it’s
extremely hot and we’re extremely
active. We can’t sweat enough if
we don’t consume enough liquid.
That spells trouble because we
lower our body temperature
by sweating. So stay
hydrated to stay cooler.

PROTECT
YOUR KIDNEYS
Our kidneys, the human body’s filtration system, do better
when there’s lots of water around. That’s because they work harder and
suffer more wear-and-tear when they’re forced to produce urine that’s
more concentrated (less watery). Electrolytes, such as potassium, phosphate,
and sodium, help carry electrical signals between cells. The kidneys keep
the levels of electrolytes in the body stable when they function properly.
Sources: Nutrition Reviews Journal, medicalnewstoday.com
Drink when you feel hungry
because your body may mix up
feeling hungry with being thirsty.
3
Try some low-fat soup or fruits or
vegetables as an afternoon snack.
They will boost your fluid intake.

NYCBS: Making a resolution to fight cancer with food

on nutrition and diet isn’t just a
New Year’s resolution, but a
year-round commitment to each patient—

with personalized nutrition protocols
designed to minimize side effects and
enhance patient outcomes.

their personal food preferences.
Dehydration and
Malnutrition Dangers
Many cancer patients arrive at NYCBS in
an already-compromised nutritional state,
with dehydration and malnutrition being the
most common problems. Hydrating the
patient, boosting their immune system, and
correcting deficiencies through vitamins,
minerals and supplements, can minimize
side effects and keep energy levels higher.
Preventative Nutritional Care
NYCBS nutritionists
continue monitoring
patients long after their
treatment ends.
Nutritional intervention and monitoring are
especially important for patients with little
appetite and those experiencing swallowing
issues or diarrhea due to their protocol.
Maximizing a patient’s nutritional state before and during cancer treatment may
result in better outcomes and fewer side effects.

Now there’s a new technologically
advanced surgical procedure that
will allow you to walk immediately
after the procedure, with minimal down
time, no crutches, no cast and early return

Care Specialists have extensive surgical
training and experience in this
technologically advanced procedure.
A bunion is a poorly aligned big toe joint.
Bunions are often caused by an inherited
foot type, foot injuries, and certain
deformities and can be exacerbated by high
heels or ill-fitting shoes. This may lead to
swelling, redness, or soreness around the
big toe joint, thickening of the skin at the
base of the big toe, corns or calluses, pain,
and restricted movement of the big toe. By
pushing the big toe inward, a bunion can
squeeze your other toes into abnormal
positions causing hammertoe deformities.
“There’s no other cancer care program
just like NYCBS,” Galiardo continues, “where
oncologists and hematologists respect and
work together with nutritionists to create
individualized treatment protocols that
consider the whole patient and help
maximize their chance for a positive
outcome.”
With 25+ conveniently-located,
community-based cancer care centers

DIETING 101:
K13
BY PAMEL A BRIL L
T
he New Year often starts with a
resolution to shed a few pounds
and change your eating habits.
With a myriad of diet plans out
there, it can be challenging to discern
which one is best for you and your
lifestyle. Our experts offer an overview
of some of the more popular dieting
programs, along with overall tips on how
to eat smarter and more nutritiously.
KETOGENIC (KETO) DIET: This highfat, low-carbohydrate diet is designed
to put your body in a state of ketosis.
“Ketosis is a metabolic state that
causes your body to burn ketones (a
byproduct of fat metabolism) for fuel
instead of glucose (byproduct of
carbohydrate metabolism),” explains
Nina Eng, chief clinical dietician at
Plainview Hospital. While this diet
may help you lose significant weight
in a short period, and you don’t need
to track your food intake, it has a
high saturated fat intake. “[This
diet] is not recommended for
those with type 1 diabetes,
kidney or liver disease,” she
cautions.
PALEO DIET: This meal
plan focuses strictly on foods
typically obtained by hunting and gathering: lean
meats, fish, fruits and
vegetables, nuts
and seeds.
MEDITERRANEAN DIET: This meal
plan concentrates on plant-based
foods, whole grains and healthy fats
such as olive oil, nuts and fish. Red
meat is permitted a few times per
month, while fish and chicken are
allowed twice per week. On the plus
side: the potential for a reduced risk of
cancer, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and
heart disease.
DASH DIET: Like the Mediterranean
diet, the Dietary Approaches to Stop
Hypertension (DASH) plan is low in
saturated fat, sugar and sodium and
high in protein and fiber. “While
reducing the intake of sodium, it
encourages a variety of nutrient foods
that are high in potassium, magnesium
and calcium,” says Stein. The emphasis
is on vegetables, fruits and low-fat
dairy foods, and may help reduce the
risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke,
diabetes and osteoporosis.
OP
OPTAVIA:
This meal plan consists of
fiv meals per day, supplemented by
five
one meat, vegetable and healthy fat
entrée. Packaged foods include shakes,
soups, biscuits and puddings that are
high in protein and contain probiotics.
No calorie counting is necessary, and
support is available via a diet coach
and online community. “Longterm success for maintaining
lost weight is not favorable,”
cautions Eng. “This program
does not teach participants to
eat healthy.”
TAKEAWAY TIPS: Before
beginning a diet, Eng recommends checking with your
physician to rule out any
potential health concerns.
“Choosing the right meal plan
is individualized and depends
on a variety of factors,
such as medical
0318HealthLink_Cos-

conditions,
lifestyle factors,
long and short-term
goals and physical
activity,” she notes. Smaller
steps can also be taken to
promote good health in the New
Year and beyond. Stein suggests
increasing fiber intake, using olive
and canola oils to lower your healthy
fat intake and swapping the salt
shaker for garlic, pepper and other
spices to flavor food.
newsday.com
Dairy product,
legumes, whole
grains, refined sugar and
processed foods are offlimits. Eliminating whole grains
and legumes can cause a fiber
deficiency, notes Arlene Stein, nutrition
support dietician at NYU Winthrop
Hospital. “Calcium intake could also
be comprised due to the lack of dairy,”
she says. “It is possible to lose weight
on the Paleo diet, but it’s hard to stick
with because of the dietary restrictions.”
WHOLE 30 DIET: This 30-day plan
incorporates whole foods and does not
allow dairy, grains, alcohol, sugar and
any highly processed foods. “There is
very little wiggle room because your
body needs 30 days of compliance to
reset itself,” says Eng. You’ll also need
to think ahead when planning your
meals. And since this diet does not
involve counting calories, it might be
tough to keep the weight off after the
30 days are up.

Lower risk of stroke through exercise and diet
By Neurological Surgery, P.C.

E
xercise can make you fitter.
It can also ward off many
unexpected diseases, from
heart attacks, strokes, and
some forms of cancer, to diabetes
and dementia. There are signs
that exercise may also make you
more clever by boosting cognitive
performance and brain function.
Government guidelines recommend adults under 65 do 150
minutes of moderate physical
activity every week, in bouts of
at least 10 minutes. A fitness
class called Tabata,
named after Japanese
scientist Izumi Tabata,
claims that just 4 minutes
of exercise, in 20-second
bursts interspersed by 10 seconds
of rest, is enough to significantly
boost your fitness and get you in
shape. When Tabata put a group
of speed skating students through
this regime five times a week for six
weeks, they ended up significantly
fitter than another group who ran
at a medium intensity for an hour
on a treadmill.
Omega-3 fatty acids lower the
risk of mini-strokes and brain
abnormalities as we age by up to
40 percent. A research group from
the University of Eastern Finland
has published the results of a study
in the Journal of the American
Heart Association that explains
how high long-chain omega-3
polyunsaturated fatty acid content
in blood may lower the risk of
small brain infarcts and other
brain abnormalities in the elderly.
Brain infarcts dramatically increase
the risk of developing Alzheimer’s
disease and other forms of dementia
that currently affect more than
5 million individuals in the U.S.
Peer-reviewed results from this
study demonstrate the critical
importance of regular consumption
of fatty fish (several servings per
week) or regular supplementation
with a purified fish oil product
(1,200 to 2,400 mg EPA/DHA daily)
to maintain optimal brain and
cardiovascular health.

laucoma is a condition which
occurs when the optic nerve
becomes damaged and can
result in blindness. Pressure
in the eye, known as intraocular
pressure (IOP), is a cause of Glaucoma.
A patient in the early stages of
Glaucoma may be unaware of their
condition, and may not be aware of
symptoms. As Glaucoma progresses,
blind spots can develop in a patient’s
peripheral vision. If left untreated,
Glaucoma can lead to complete
blindness. Early detection and
treatment by an OCLI Ophthalmologist
is key, and can prevent loss of sight.
A dilated eye exam is necessary
to detect Glaucoma in addition to
checking your pressure (IOP), as it is
possible for patients with Glaucoma
to have “normal” IOP.

diagnosis and treatment
is so important.
During your glaucoma evaluation, our
doctors will:
• Measure your intraocular
pressure [IOP]
• Inspect the drainage angle of
your eye
Glaucoma damage cannot be
reversed, which is why early diagnosis
and treatment is so important. In the
early stages of Glaucoma the patient’s
quality of life is unaffected. Glaucoma
can progress without a patient being
aware of its presence. Once vision is
lost, it cannot be restored. Follow-up
examinations are crucial to confirm
stability of the disease.
Once Glaucoma is diagnosed, it
needs to be treated. When detected
and diagnosed early, typically the IOP
can be controlled, and the patient
maintains his or her present state of
visional function. There are two types
of Glaucoma; Narrow-Angle Glaucoma
and Open-Angle Glaucoma. Both
types have a variety of treatment
options available including: drops,
Laser Iridotomy, Selective Laser
Trabeculoplasty and surgery. Treatment
is determined on a patient-to-patient
basis, dependent on the needs of the
individual. These are all excellent
options to lower the IOP and control
Glaucoma. OCLI Ophthalmologists are
skilled and knowledgeable in helping
patients determine the best course of
action to maintain eye health. To find

Provider, visit ocli.net/providers/

“My experience here has been so rewarding. I can smile with pleasure and eat with confidence. My 19 year
old grand-daughter asked me if these were my real teeth. I said yes they are because they are in my mouth,
and I told her they were dental implants. She did not believe me and I actually had to open my mouth and show
her. She told me that if she ever needed dental work she would come back to New York to see the Popper
Dental Team. She said I have the nicest smile in the world. It’s hard to believe my teeth are not my Natural-born
teeth.” Thank You again - Lizzie

Debunking 6 Myths
About Head Lice
A
B Y VA N E S S A CA C E R E S
ck! You get that dreaded call from
the school nurse and find out
your kid has head lice. Your first
step: Don’t panic. “They are not a
medical crisis, but they make
everyone cringe,” said Dr. Warren Rosenfeld,
chair of pediatrics at South Nassau
Community Hospital in Oceanside.
* † Dr. Douglas Livingston
* Dr. Leon Livingston | * Dr. Brandon Naing
† Dr. Alison Graziano | † Dr. Merlan Ellis
† Dr. Edward D’Amico
There’s a lot of confusion about head lice
and their treatment, so let’s debunk some
common myths.
1. Head lice reflect a dirty household.
They actually have nothing to do with
cleanliness, Rosenfeld said. They are passed
by head-to-head contact, something that
children may have when playing, hugging,
sharing a hat, or taking selfies together.
After shampooing, use the special comb
sold with the shampoo to remove the nits.
4. My kid needs to stay home from
school until the nits are gone. This is an
older idea that the American Academy of
Pediatrics does not support. Although it’s
appropriate to send a child home to receive
treatment when lice are found, he or she
should be able to return to school after that
treatment, George said.
5. Clean the house from top to bottom
after a lice outbreak. Lice live off the human
scalp, so that should be your focus. To be on
the safe side, wash the bed sheets in hot
water and vacuum any upholstery where the
person may have placed his or her head,
Gilbert recommended.
6. Only kids get head lice. Sorry—
anyone can get them, and many parents
get them after their children have them,
Gilbert said.

3. Washing the hair will get them out.
You need a special shampoo that kills the
eggs. There are over-the-counter and
prescription formulations. Ask your doctor
what he or she prefers, George advised.
Some shampoos are geared toward kids age
two or older; others are OK in infants aged
two months or older.
Often, you’ll have to use the shampoo about
10 days later to make sure the scalp is licefree. Fairy LiceMothers, with three locations
on Long Island, works with families to check
for lice, provide treatment, and to remove
lice, said owner Carol Gilbert.
* Diplomat American Board of Foot & Ankle Surgery
† Diplomat American Board of Podiatric Medicine

2. You’ll always know when your child
has head lice. No—you or your child may
not realize it until lice have laid several eggs,
or nits, in the scalp. When your child has an
itchy scalp, use a fine-toothed comb on wet
hair in a bright area to check the scalp for the
nits laid by lice, Rosenfeld advised. Also look
out for a rash near the back of the ears, said
pediatrician Dr. Minu George of Northwell
Health in New Hyde Park.

Help is available for those
with tinnitus
T
By The Hearing and Tinnitus Center
innitus is defined as the presence
of sound in the ears or head in
the absence of external sound.
In many cases, tinnitus is ignored
and considered non-bothersome. This could
be compared to the sound of your air
conditioner in the summer time. It is
mostly likely a sound you could hear if
you focused on it, but one that is typically
ignored because it is not important.
For some, tinnitus is noticeable only
when it is quiet. It is minimally intrusive
during the day while at work or school.
Listening to music, running a fan, or
watching television are often effective
ways to drown out the tinnitus. Some even
use combination devices to successfully
address their hearing and tinnitus needs.
But for others tinnitus can be all
consuming. Every moment may be spent
searching for or listening to the sound.
As the tinnitus becomes more problematic
involvement of the limbic and autonomic
nervous system further intensify the
negative emotions associated with this
condition; a viscous cycle ensues. Sleeping

Do you see the signs and
symptoms of vein disease?
ein problems are common in the
U.S. and around the world. By
age 50, nearly 40 pecent of women
and 20 percent of men have some
type of significant vein disorder. Leg pain,
swelling, bulging varicosities, and ulcers
caused by vein insufficiency are common
reasons our patients suffer and lose time
from work. Spider veins are often unsightly
as well as uncomfortable.
Vein disorders are manifested in a
variety of ways. Varicose veins are large,
blue, ropy structures which bulge in the skin
and are often unsightly as well as painful.
Spider veins are small blood vessels in the
skin, either blue or red, and often arranged
in clusters or branches. Stasis dermatitis is
the red or brown skin color change around
the ankle and lower leg, caused by chronic
venous stasis. Venous ulcers develop on
the inside of the ankle most commonly,
but sometimes on the outside as well.
These ulcers are very painful, and are
due to abnormal leaking veins in the legs.
Many patients suffer leg pain and swelling
from chronic leg vein congestion.
Correction of the
problem relieves pain
and swelling within
one to two months.
Correction of the problem relieves pain
and swelling within one to two months.
Some patients with vein insufficiency
suffer night time leg cramps and restless
leg syndrome. Once the leg veins are
corrected, one-third of patients are
completely relieved of these symptoms.

Bone On Bone?
Have you been given this diagnosis? Have you been told your
only option is total knee replacement surgery? Have you been told
injections won’t work or have you had injections and still have pain?
There is now a safe, non-surgical solution that has been FDA cleared and is available locally. It has been proven to effectively
reduce and even eliminate knee pain. There is no down time and you’re encouraged to remain active without interruption to your
daily routine. And the best part is it’s covered by most insurance, including Medicare. A revolutionary, new, non-surgical treatment
called Viscosupplementation Therapy is providing hope and relief for many knee pain sufferers. Offered locally by the medical
doctors at Joint Relief Associates of New York, this procedure is minimally invasive, requires no surgery and can provide immediate
and long-lasting results. Before we can discuss the benefits of Viscosupplementation Therapy, let’s consider the most recent facts.
Consider The Facts…
➜ A recent study shows that Viscosupplementation is more effective than oral NSAIDs and injectable corticosteroids.
➜ An alarming 1/3 of all knee replacement surgeries yield poor outcomes.
➜ A Canadian study shows that Viscosupplementation is more beneficial than arthroscopic surgery for knee arthritis.
➜ According to the American Gastroenterological Association, NSAIDs hospitalize over 100,000 people yearly and are
responsible for over 16,500 deaths.
➜ As per the CDC, 1 in 5 adults suffer from arthritis and by 2030 and estimated 67 million Americans will be diagnosed
with Osteoarthritis.
Clearly arthritis and knee pain have already reached epidemic proportions in the United States. If you are experiencing any
of the following symptoms in your knees or joints chances are your pain is due to a condition called Osteoarthritis and you
may be a candidate for care.
• Pain: Your joints may ache, or the pain may feel burning or sharp. For some people, the pain may come and go. Constant
pain or pain while sleeping may be a sign that your arthritis is getting worse.
• Stiffness: When you have arthritis, getting up in the morning can be hard. Your joints may feel stiff and creaky for a short
time, until you get moving. You may also get stiff from sitting.
• Muscle Weakness: The muscles around the joint may get weaker. This happens a lot with arthritis in the knee.
• Swelling: Arthritis can cause swelling in joints, making them feel tender and sore.
• Deformed Joints: Joints can start to look like they are the wrong shape.
• Reducing Range of Motion and loss of Use in the Joint: As your arthritis gets worse, you may not be able to fully bend,
flex or extend your joints. Or you may not be able to use them at all.
• Cracking and Creaking: Your joints may make crunching, creaking sounds
If you are experiencing any of the above mentioned symptoms, do not worry, there is hope. Many of our patients who reported
these very same symptoms have seen them reduced or even eliminated after receiving Viscosupplementation Therapy. Have
you lost hope or been told surgery is your only option? Don’t accept an ultimatum! If you or a loved one have been given an
ultimatum by another doctor don’t worry, you have options. Feel free to call anytime at 516-590-7410 and ask for your free
second, third or fourth opinion. Until recently, the only advice for many suffering from knee and joint pain was to:
• Try exercising
• Try physical therapy
• Try pain pills
• Try muscle relaxers
• Try pain shots
• Try dangerous surgery
If you are tired of trying treatments that don’t provide lasting relief, or you are afraid to try any of these treatments, don’t worry
there is another option. If you have tried any of these treatments and experienced little to no relief you may still be a
candidate for Viscosupplementation Therapy. Call 516-590-7410 and schedule a no cost consultation today!

Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance extracted from rooster
combs and purified to mimic the lubricating substances that
occur naturally in the joint called synovial fluid. In patients with osteoarthritis, synovial fluid “dries up” allowing the cartilage of the joint to rub against itself and other surfaces causing pain, inflammation, and in most cases damage to the joint.
Think of this treatment like oiling a squeaky door hinge, once applied the squeaking stops and the door moves more freely.

Mather hyperbaric unit has performed
thousands of treatments
irst on Long Island, the Hyperbaric
Medicine unit at Mather Hospital
Northwell Health was established in
1994 and has performed more than
40,000 treatments, successfully treating many
conditions including chronic wounds, carbon
monoxide poisoning, radiation injuries from
cancer treatments and diving injuries,
commonly called “the bends”. Our staff
includes hyperbaric certified physicians/
nurses and trained critical care nurses.
The doctors at Joint Relief Associates use high tech x-ray
equipment called fluoroscopy to identify problem areas with great
accuracy. (Studies show that simply feeling for the joint space
and injecting may not be as accurate as they should be and
produce less than excellent results.) Viscosupplementation is then
injected into the knee, acting like a lubricant and shock absorber
attempting to restore the cushioning and lubricating properties of
a normal, younger knee. Most patients compare the treatment to
getting a flu shot and report little pain or discomfort.
