Mets fans turned out in abun- dance on Monday at a pep rally at Queens Borough Hall. No part of town can outdo Rockaway when it comes to Amazin’ support. Lo- cals were out in force! Among the giddy were Katie Honan and Miriam Rosenberg and Eddy Pas-

Rockaway Documentary Premiers

A new documentary showcas- ing many of Rockaway’s neigh- borhoods and residents post- Hurricane Sandy premiered on Sunday, October 25 on local pub- lic television channels 13 and 21. “Everything is Different Now:

Rockaway After the Storm” was directed by Jennifer Callahan, who previously directed the ac- claimed “Bungalows of Rocka- way.” Opening with a quote from “Moby Dick” that mentions Rock- away, the documentary intro- duces the peninsula through the eyes of both longtime and more recent residents and business owners. Among the locals inter- viewed throughout the film are Rashida Jackson of Sayra’s, Clua- dette Flatow of Cuisine by Clau- dette, Andrew Field of Rockaway Taco (now Tacoway Beach), artist Klaus Bisenbach, and Edgemere Farm’s David Selig. An ominous warning is given by Dr. Michael C. Oppenheimer of Princeton Universtiy in the film’s opening minutes: “You can make a case

St Paddy’s Day Parade Activities Underway

One of Rockaway’s favor- ite holidays is St. Patrick’s Day, and while it is a little under five months out it’s never too early to get excited. In gearing up for the 41st edition of the Queens Coun- ty St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the pa- rade’s committee will begin fund- raising with the annual Hearts & Shamrock Dance at St. Camillus’ Springman Hall on Saturday, No- vember 14th from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Registration for the parade itself is also now open, and all in- terested community groups must fill out an application. On Sunday November 8th the committee will hold its annual mass for deceased members at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Beach 90th Street. Families of the deceased and previous honor- ees are encouraged to attend the mass, which will begin at 10 a.m. For more information on both of these events and on how to regis- ter, write to mike@queenscoun- typarade.org or kroppyboy@aol. com by Wednesday, November

that people shouldn’t have built on these sandbars.” The movie features footage of the storm ripping apart the boardwalk and many residents recount their experiences during and in the immediate aftermath of Sandy. The film then shifts its focus to many of the volunteer organizations that have worked to make Rockaway a better com- munity in Sandy’s wake, includ- ing the Rockaway Waterfront Alli- ance and Arts in Parts. Bungalow owners for generations described why they have continued to come to and live in the peninsula, and the efforts of locals to protect Rockaway from another storm are highlighted.

Bliss Shattered

There’s a reason the expression “ignorance is bliss” is an expres- sion. I mean beer is bliss, too. Or a pina colada on a summer after- noon or the sound of the house when the kids have gone to school. But those treats aren’t as good as ignorance. I was enjoying a dinner the oth- er night with my bride at Playland, pretty much oblivious to my sur- roundings. Great food, nice place, I was happy. But my wife was less oblivious. She shook her head and then smiled with a mix of amuse- ment and annoyance. “Like, like, like,” she said. Huh? What are you talking about? “You don’t hear her?” Apparently the acoustics were playing tricks on my general deaf- ness. I had no clue. Without trying, my wife had picked up on the conversation be- tween two young women at the bar. She didn’t like, know, exactly, like, you know, like, like what they were talking about but with each use of the word “like” my wife was closer to sticking a fork in her eye. (Her own eye not like the girl at the bar). All I could say was, “Thanks.” Lucky me. Now I’d be hearing the word like between every chew. A minute ago I was happy and now I’m like, going like, nuts. I couldn’t like take it. A minute ago I was ig- norant and I was blissful. If you fall asleep before some- one who snores you have a blissful night’s sleep ahead. If the snorer beats you to the pillow, you’re dead. If you’re asleep, you’re igno- rant and blissful. If you’re awake, you’re knowledgeable and mur- derous. You never know what will de- stroy bliss. It’s often someone’s voice from across a room that in- vades your space. You want to tell them to shut up. But it’s not really any of your business. They’re talk- ing, not shouting, and it’s your tough luck you hear every annoy-

ing word. Anything can do it. My son tells me I annoy him when I point out someone’s bad toupee. Because

then he starts looking around for other interesting hairpieces.

It could be someone’s repeat-

ed voice clearing, a ticking clock, wind chimes, anything.

I know a couple of people – yes,

more than one – who try to finish other peoples’ sentences. It goes something like this. I might say, “I was at the game the other night and this guy kept standing up in front of us.” “Standing up in front” will echo back at me. “Hillary Clin- ton is so old, why’d she want to run?” As that question is not quite finished its echo follows: “Why’d she want to run?” Strange, and I wished I’d never noticed it. Both are good friends, who don’t know each other, but

have this similar verbal tic. I don’t know what would happen in a conversation between the two of them, if a sentence would ever end.

I don’t tell them or others about

this (so I don’t think they’ll know I’m talking about them). Igno- rance is good for everyone here except me. I’ll just endure it as a small price of friendship.

A buddy told me about enjoy-

ing a beautiful evening on his back porch – until the sound of an air conditioner started driving him insane. He now says it was bad enough that the noise drove him crazy but he still feels guilty that he mentioned it to his wife who had been enjoying the bliss until he opened his big fat mouth. Bliss is so easily destroyed. My mother and others have offered the least useful piece of advice ever on the matter. “Just ignore it.” Just ignore it? We all know that only makes it worse. That ticking clock becomes a sledgehammer. That stranger’s voice become chalk on a blackboard.

I’m signing off. Have an igno- rant day.

***** Mayor de Blasio came to Breezy Point on Tuesday. The real news is he was early! And arrived by helicopter, land- ing in the Riis Park parking lot. Of course in a way he was a year late. When campaigning for mayor he said he’d be back to Breezy in less than a year. It took him two. He is expected again in Rockaway on November 12, the anniversary of the crash of Flight 587. You’ll recall last year he upset many, many people by arriving late to the memorial service on Beach 116th Street.

***** If you’re not a Twitter person you might have missed a couple of tweets from City Councilman Donovan Richards: PO Randolph represents the best in Far Rockaway. A story rarely told in the media here. (That would be Randolph Holder). And Kudos to Kevin Callahan for focusing on the eastern end of Rockaway in his documentary “Everything is Different Now: Roc After The Storm.” (We think he means Jennifer [not Kevin] and her not him).

***** There are a lot of choices for Hallow- een fun this year. Check out Katie McFadden’s Halloween reports in this week’s paper.

Soon after their victory, some lo- cals and elected officials buried a time capsule near the Doughboy monu- ment at Beach 94th street. The idea was for it to be opened in a hundred years. The Queens Library pledged to care take, monitor, or whatever archi- vists do. It seems no one at the library can find any record of it and we won- der where exactly it was buried and if it even survived Sandy (that water ta- ble helped flood a lot of basements).

Veto Port Ambrose!

By Katie McFadden

The final chance to stop the Port Ambrose Liquid Natural Gas project from becoming a reality is quickly approaching and local businesses are calling on Gover- nor Andrew Cuomo to stop it in its tracks. Port Ambrose is an offshore nat- ural gas deep-water port facility that would be located 16.1 nauti- cal miles southeast of Jones Beach, 24.9 nautical miles east of Long Branch, New Jersey, and 27.1 nau- tical miles from New York Harbor in a water depth of approximately

103 feet. The facility would include

a series of pipelines and buoys. It

would allow for barges to dock at the station and bring liquefied nat- ural gas that would be turned back into a gas and shipped out through

a pipeline, bringing more natural

gas into New York and New Jersey.

Environmentalists, local politi- cians and others have been fight- ing against the proposal for years, saying that it would create a terror- ist target and that the extra gas it would supply is simply not need- ed. This has lead to speculation that the project, being proposed as an import facility, would even- tually be converted into an export facility, shipping out natural gas overseas. They also propose that wind power at the location would serve as a safer alternative. In mid-October, the United States Maritime Administration and U.S. Coast Guard released the final Environmental Impact State- ment (EIS) for the proposed Port Ambrose Project, which seems favorable for Liberty Natural Gas, the company behind the proposed project. “We are very pleased that the United States Coast Guard’s fi- nal EIS for Port Ambrose supports

Coast Guard’s fi- nal EIS for Port Ambrose supports the project design, location and fundamental need.

the project design, location and fundamental need. The EIS is the result of an exhaustive, multi-year state and federal study and con- firms that Port Ambrose is a safe and environmentally responsible project with minimal impacts,” said Roger Whelan, CEO of Liberty Natural Gas. Others are not so in favor, in- cluding local business owners. Governor Andrew Cuomo and Governor Chris Christie have the power to veto the project. With Christie vetoing a similar project in 2011, and Cuomo seemingly invested in environmental issues, activists are hoping that the gover- nors will make a smart decision. On Tuesday, October 27, several local business owners gathered on Beach 59th Street to tell the gover- nor how they feel. “The potential devastating consequences and the possible adverse repercussions of Port Ambrose should be enough on its own to put the brakes on this project,” Robert Kaskel, own- er of Thai Rock and Rockaway Jet Ski, said. “My business is entirely dependent on clean waters and a vibrant Rockaways. Governor Cuo- mo, I urge you to veto Port Am- brose.” “Veto the project immedi- ately and do the right thing.”Erin Silvers, owner of Zingara Vintage,

said. Joan Robinson, owner of Goody’s BBQ, Chris and Sarah Ro- mulo, owners of CROM Physical Culture, as well as State Senator Jo- seph Addabbo and Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder were also on hand to state their opposition and urge the governor to stop the project. Cuomo and Christie will have an opportunity to veto the project as soon as November 6, after public hearings for the project. The public hearings will be from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on November 2 and November 3 at the Long Beach Hotel (405 East Broadway, Long Beach) and from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Sheraton Eatontown Hotel (6 Industrial Way East) in New Jersey on November 4. Each public hear- ing will be preceded by an open house from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Com- ments can also be made online by going to www.regulations.gov and searching “Port Ambrose” or dock- et number USCG-2013-0363. Pub- lic comments close on November 30 and the governors will have un- til December 21, 2015 to veto the project. A veto could stop the proj- ect completely, but as the project moves forward in the application process, it could be approved by the end of the year.

COUNTY TO OF QUEENS:

ANTS IN ROCKAWAY

they were finally able to purchase

a house between Newport and

Rockaway Beach Boulevard on Beach 124th Street.

Cecelia Rudden, another Flat- bush native, had also come down

to the peninsula in her youth. “As

a kid I used to come down to the

beach at Riis Park with friends. My family were never really beach people,” she said. Her husband Donald had family in Rockaway. “My sister-in-law and brother-in- law both already lived down here for many years. We’d always go through Rockaway to and from.

It seemed close to Manhattan but

so far away, like being on vaca- tion.” After the Barnes’, whom the Ruddens are close friends with (both Donald and Dennis being

members of the FDNY) moved to Rockaway, they began to recon- sider their living situation. “When my youngest Catherine was in ju- nior high, most her friends were from Rockaway. We lived in Old Mill Basin at the time. We knew we wanted to try and get a bigger house anyway.” In 1999, they made

it official and bought a house on

Beach 124th, just down the block from the Barnes. Pam DiMola grew up in Gra- vesend, “between Sheepshead and Bensonhurst, exit 7 on the Belt Parkway,” in her words. “When I got my first 10-speed bike, we used to take bike hikes. We’d pack a lunch and end up going to Neponsit. It wasn’t even summertime, usu-

ally spring and fall. It was just so pretty. That’s how I really learned this place existed.” After meeting her husband on Brighton Beach, DiMola kept her connection to the water by getting a cabana in Breezy Point. “We would drive through the peninsula on occasion to get food, especially to Plum Tomatoes,” she said. After having three kids, in- cluding a set of twins, the family first moved to Bergen Beach. “Back in Gravesend, though, an inves- tor wanted to knock all the homes down and build million-dollar homes in their place. He offered all the people I grew up with a lot

of money to sell their homes. They

had to say yes.” Her parents were among these people, and despite being reluctant to move, felt they had no choice. “We started look- ing down here and then the plane crash happened. We were look- ing seriously at a house on Beach 132nd Street. My husband was supposed to meet with a roofer but the meeting was canceled that morning.” Eventually they too moved to Beach 124th Street, “on

Mayor Talks Sandy Progress

By Katie McFadden

On Tuesday, October 27, two days before the third anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, Mayor Bill de Blasio, along with Housing and Ur- ban Development Secretary Julian Castro, took a tour of Breezy Point to see some of the progress made in New York City’s hardest hit area. With a busy schedule, includ- ing the services for Police Office Randolph Holder, de Blasio ar- rived at Riis Park by helicopter and was driven to Breezy Point by SUV. He was early. Mayor de Bla- sio and Secretary Castro toured through the neighborhood where Artie Lighthall of the Breezy Point co-op told them that 119 of the 135 homes that burned down have been rebuilt. They also stopped by the newly rebuilt home of Eamonn and Roseanne Cunningham to see the work done by Build it Back and to hand them the key to the new, 15-foot elevated house where the Cunninghams and their 9 and 12-year-old daughters will live. The mayor and Secretary Castro then arrived at Kennedy’s to view the progress of the restaurant that opened two years after the storm with the help of a $126,000 grant from Small Business Services. At noon, the mayor held a press con-

Business Services. At noon, the mayor held a press con- ference outside of the Breezy Point

ference outside of the Breezy Point restaurant to go over some of the progress that has been made since Sandy. “It’s been three years now and we remember what happened. Thousands of families were fun- damentally thrown for a loop, just pushed back on their heals. It was a tragedy. We lost lives. We lost so many homes and businesses. If you spent time like I did in neigh-

borhoods like this in the days after, it was unimaginable how much damage Sandy did and it was un- like anything we’ve ever seen be- fore,” the mayor said. “I came back on the one year anniversary and saw already how much progress had been made. People were ab- solutely resolute. They were going to rebuild here, they believe in this community, they love it, they were going to make it work. Even after

one year you saw them making progress. Coming back now three years later it’s amazing to see what people have achieved and we’re proud to have been a part of it.” De Blasio admitted that Sandy- impacted areas didn’t get the help that was needed from the City ini- tially and that much of the work done was due to the people. “First and foremost it’s been families

and Ramp Galleries. The museum
is located at 47-01 111th Street,

Her mastery
Mon – Fri, 9:30 am – 5 pm; Sat &
Sun, 10 am – 6 pm). October Waves
is a photographic exploration by
Gottlieb, a remarkably inventive
and prolific artist, and is her sixth
series of seascapes photographed
in Rockaway in the last 15 years.
This most recent series is a docu-
mentation of the 2013 hurricane
season when the sea and swells
were caught up in a rough and
tumble drama.
“Sandra Gottlieb’s camera con-
fronts the cascading waves with
results as profound as they are
beautiful and compelling. Creat-
ing meditations in time, her lens
of the medium allows her vision to
reverberate between the two, mak-
ing her photographs rich material
for consideration while simultane-
ously offering the oceanic images
up to the viewer’s simple and sen-
sual enjoyment,” Phil Tarley said.
Critic Dominique Nahas ob-
serves, “Gottlieb immerses herself
and her viewers into what might
be called the dramaturgy of the
Wave, its Sturm und Drang. Oc-
tober Waves gives us not only the
local color, so to speak, of Rocka-
way Beach, it also offers the viewer
what appears to be thirty differ-
ent character studies or individual
portraits of waves.”

The Rockaway Times

Happy Halloweekend!

By Katie McFadden

Okay, boys and ghouls, Hal- loween is on a Saturday this year, meaning you don’t have to wait for school to finish to start trick- or-treating, but a jackpot candy day isn’t the only thing happen- ing this weekend. There is plenty to do around the peninsula for kids and adults alike. Need a last-minute costume? Zingara Vintage at 212 Beach 91st Street is hosting the First Annual Rockaway Costume Swap. Owner Erin Silvers is inviting people to drop off old costumes or acces- sories and trade them in for a new one. The more people that are able to bring old costumes, the more successful the swap will be. The shop is also stocked with vintage items that can help put the finishing touches on any cos- tume such as ‘50s prom dresses, ‘80s leather jackets and odd vin- tage treasures. The swap will run from noon to 7 p.m. on Thursday and noon to 6 p.m. on Friday. “This will only work if people participate. Lets work together to start a new neighborhood tra- dition!” Silvers said. Do you want to scream this Halloween? One of the most an- ticipated events occurring this

weekend is “Alice in Playland” at Playland Motel (97-20 Rockaway Beach Boulevard). Artist Geoff Rawling and his crew have put together an elaborate interactive production in the backyard of the restaurant, featuring characters from Alice in Wonderland, circus freaks and plenty of surprises. The haunted house is open from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Oc- tober 29, Friday, October 30 and of course, on Halloween night. The haunted house is open to all ages and a $10 donation is suggested. Following Saturday’s event, Rattrap Bumpkin will be playing live in the back bar at 10 p.m. and there will be a costume contest with prizes. You’ll also find some reasons to scream in Broad Channel with the Broad Channel Volunteer Fire Department’s Haunted Insane Asylum (15 Noel Road). This in- teractive haunted house event is open to ages 13 and over. Anyone under 13 must be accompanied by an adult. There is a $10 admis- sion fee for the haunted house, which will be open starting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 29 through Sunday, November 1. However on Saturday, Octo- ber 31, there will be a free, child friendly showing for ages one

through 12, right after the Broad Channel Halloween Parade. The parade takes place at 11 a.m. on Halloween. Participants are encouraged to line up at 17th Road Park at 10:45 a.m. All ages are welcome to put on their cos-

its annual Halloween Costume Party. The party, starting at 6 p.m. on Friday, October 30 and going all night, will feature food, music, drink specials throughout the day and prizes for the best cos- tume. Starting at 8 p.m. on Satur-

From Kings County To The Jewel Of Queens:

BROOKLYN TRANSPLANTS IN ROCKAWAY

Continued from page 9

the last house on the left on the bay block.” A common reason why these Brooklynites continue to live in Rockaway is the small-town nature of the area. “Besides the beach, even though I grew up in Brooklyn, is such a close community here,” Barnes said. “I know more people around here.” DiMola echoed this saying, “Everyone is so together. It feels like one big family.” Rudden cited the fact that she feels Rock- away is a great place to raise her kids, who are now grown. “I feel safer in Rockaway. The kids were safer playing outside. The beach is right here. We got more for our money down here when we bought the house. I felt like it was an easier style of living.” Brooklyn does appear to stay with those who grew up there though, if only for the seemingly small things that Rockaway does not have. “I miss the ethnic spe- cialty stores, the Italian and Jew- ish delis,” Rudden said. “There was almost anything at your fingertips. And transportation was so much easier, especially since I work in

Manhattan.” Kilgallen also longed for the diversity and uniqueness Brooklyn offers. “I miss all of the cultural things that Brooklyn has. Walking down 7th Avenue and see- ing all of those shops. There’s so much going on there compared to Rockaway.” Barnes has found Rockaway lacking in some re- spects. “The transportation was better, more stores, more restau- rants. If we want to eat something really nice, up until last year or so, we’d have to go over the bridge. There are still no movie theaters,” he said. Yet nobody expressed regret for moving or a desire to go back per- manently. “I was just in Brooklyn today,” Kilgallen said. “It was just so packed that I love coming back here.” DiMola frankly said that she misses almost nothing about the old borough. “My twins became complete Rockaway people. [Brook- lyn] is congested and dirty, nothing like here. We chose the house on the water and it’s the most calming feel- ing. I wake up in the morning and it just overtakes me.”

To Korea With Love From Far Rock To The Far East

By Deina Risti

As Westerners, we’ve always looked towards the East with won- der, enchanted by the thought of the seemingly forbidden and mys-

tic lands on the other side of the world. It was a year ago when I embarked on a journey to explore those lands. Throughout my adolescence, I had developed a passion for Asian culture through novels and film.

It was a passion that only grew as

I got older. Now in college, I am a

global Asian studies major at Pace University in Manhattan. After taking an Asian art lecture in 2013,

I was inspired to study abroad! I tried my hardest to make my dream a reality, and my hard work truly paid off when I was awarded the Benjamin A. Gilman Scholar- ship in 2014. Without it, my family and I would not have been able to afford the trip to South Korea. As I landed in Incheon Airport, my only thought was that I’d finally made it to The Land of Morning Calm. The first few months were a whirlwind, exploring South Ko- rea’s different provinces and cit- ies. I had the privilege of visiting the Demilitarized Zone and see- ing North Korea on the horizon. I attended the Busan Film Festival where I spoke with well-known di- rectors and actors. I photographed hundreds of fashionistas at Seoul Fashion Week, participated in a traditional temple stay, tried the infamous Korean bathhouse Jjim- jilbang, attended Korean Church, and even harvested salt from the salt farms on Sinui Island. South Korea was everything

I dreamt it would be and more. Seoul, the city where I was based, amazed me at how artistic, mod- ern, organized, and completely integrated with technology it was. The youth culture included night-

life, concerts, karaoke rooms, and even pet cafes. The street vendors were also an exotic experience, since foods like sundae (blood sausage), octopi, and tteokbokki (rice cakes), were served. The cui- sine in Korea was extremely differ- ent than here in New York City. It consisted mostly of seafood, eggs, noodles, rice, seaweed, stews and vegetables. I drank either water or milk. It was a stark contrast to the dormitories where I was sur- rounded by burgers, french fries and soda. For the first few months I lived in the Yonsei University dorm where I mostly spoke English. The great thing about living on cam- pus was that, it too, was a foreign concept to me. The Yonsei grounds were so beautiful, incorporating nature with architecture. The best part about interacting with the other students on campus, was be- ing able to discuss our passion for Asian culture. The laws of Confucius, which teach that respect is the most vital of all qualities, is rooted heavily in Korean language and society. Bow- ing and other mannerisms were ways to express respect, some- thing I had to adapt to. I made two Korean friends, Hyokyeong and Chang Han, and even moved in with a Korean homestay family during the spring semester. The Jus were a nuclear family:

a mother, a father, two sons, and

a young girl with whom I bond- ed with quickly. It was by far the most enlightening part of my en- tire trip, as the Ju family exposed me to more than I’d anticipated. Although I had grown a fondness for the university life, youth cul- ture, and city, I had realized that I understood more about the values and lifestyles of Koreans because of the Ju family. But what made the biggest im-

because of the Ju family. But what made the biggest im- pact on me was that

pact on me was that even though I was a working-class college stu- dent from Far Rockaway, Queens, I still could accomplish my dream of traveling to Asia. South Korea was, in many ways, the total opposite of the Rockaways. When I thought of home, my mind conjured up memories of relaxing weekends at the beach, pizza near the board- walk and riding bikes down Beach Channel Drive. In Seoul, life is very centered on work, and play was reserved for the smallest of kids. Korea also fascinated me because of its strong mono-ethnicity. At home, New Yorkers thrive because we are racially and culturally dif- ferent. As someone with a biracial background, I was often stared at in Korea, and it made me wonder what Rockaway would be like if there was only one race and one culture. These unique attributes,

found mostly in Asia, made the study abroad experience all the more worthwhile. I can easily say that I loved South Korea and its people. Liv- ing in their world of architecture,

art, and history, made it all seem like a dream. It’s because of this,

I believe, no other country really

embodies the juxtaposition of modern and traditional life like South Korea does. I will always re- member the friends I made along the way (some of whom live in America) and the family I grew to

love and laugh with. But I will al- ways remember that time because

it was also the time that I spent re-

discovering myself. (Deina grew up in Rockaway, at- tended high school in Trinidad and Tobago, and will be graduating from Pace University in May, 2016)

Mayor Talks Sandy Progress

Continued from page 12

putting their lives back together, neighbors helping neighbors and the extraordinary local leader- ship in this community, which has done so much. I said it back then when Sandy hit and I said it since, we have to be clear, the people, the grassroots did some of the most amazing work. The government in the beginning didn’t do what it could have and we’ve learned some powerful lessons. We’ve been learning ever since about the need to do more and do better and now we’ve seen the kind of partnership between all levels of government to help homeowners. Particularly the partnership with HUD has been crucial part of our rebuilding more consistently and to quickly help homeowners.” Since the de Blasio administra- tion overhauled Built it Back in January 2014, progress has been made, and de Blasio wanted people to know it. He said that there have been 1,877 construction starts, with nearly 1,200 completions and 5,312 families have received reim- bursement checks. “This is against an initial applicant group of 9,300 or so, so now over 60 percent of that original group of folks have gotten checks or are somewhere in the construction process includ-

checks or are somewhere in the construction process includ- ing in many cases, completion,” de Blasio

ing in many cases, completion,” de Blasio said. Build it Back Director Amy Peterson later clarified this, saying “There were initially 20,000 people that applied to the program and there’s about 9,300 who are currently working with us.” Many who initially applied wound up dropping out because of the com- plicated Build it Back system that seemed to go nowhere under the Bloomberg administration. De Blasio also spoke of the progress that was made with busi-

nesses since the storm. “When I came into office, only seven busi- nesses had been awarded any kind of funding. I’m proud to say today 350 businesses affected by Sandy have gotten funding. A total of about $54 million has been dedi- cated to those businesses. That included the $126,000 grant here at Kennedy’s that helped them do this extraordinary work and they got it done ahead of schedule to their great credit,” de Blasio said in front of the restaurant.

The mayor praised HUD and Secretary Castro for all of his help along the way. Castro spoke of some of the ways HUD has helped with the recovery process. “HUD is very proud to play a role in this comeback. We’ve allocated $13 billion to states and local govern- ments impacted by Sandy. We’ve helped more than 43,000 home- owners and more than 2,200 busi- nesses,” he said. Yet there’s still more work to be done, as many families are still not back home. “We haven’t forgotten about those who are still fighting their way back and we never will. We look forward to working with May- or de Blasio and folks throughout the region until this great come- back story is complete,” Castro said. Tuesday’s press conference par- ticularly focused on the progress that has been made and de Blasio said that he would discuss the next steps that will be taken in regards to future recovery and resiliency, during a conference on Thursday, October 29, the third anniversary of the storm.

The Sludge of the Central

Queens Corridor

By Marty Ingram

Oftentimes, I find myself try- ing to pass though the central part of Queens and I am fre- quently stymied by the traffic on the Van Wyck Expressway or on Woodhaven Boulevard. On the Van Wyck sometimes I feel like it is a football game. If I am lucky enough to get ten yards, I am eligible for a first down. On Woodhaven I feel like my car has a special device that turns every traffic light red as I approach. While stuck in traffic I commis- erate with my fellow motorists and try to make the best of a bad time. Recently instead of feeling sorry for myself I have become sympathetic for the people who live in the neighborhoods sur- rounding this corridor. Despite great improvements in emission controls this heavy traffic load causes daily air pollution that has strong negative effects on all,

especially those with respiratory issues like asthma. Also on a daily basis they have to contend with the unwanted traffic jams that surround their neighborhoods. I recently discovered an app for my smart phone called Waze. Through GPS satellites it knows where I am and has the capability to reroute me around traffic jams that lie ahead. It offers alternate “ways” to avoid traffic and quick- ly gets me to my destination. In the past if a major artery was clogged the traffic would “spill out” onto the service road until that road also became clogged. Now through Waze the traffic spill out is being routed through local neighborhoods in order to dis- cover alternate routes. This fur- ther compounds the problem for formerly quiet neighborhoods. What Queens needs is more transportation options that

Moving On

Moving On

Last year we published a Sandy Anniversary edition of the Rock- away Times with never before published photos and stories by top local writers. Our front page was dedicated to the event that changed everything. This year, we opted to emphasize Hallow- een and the fun of the season. Because time marches on. Time marches on – even if much of the media seem reflex- ively bound to mark anniversa- ries such as Sandy. Various media outlets descended upon Rocka- way in recent days. One reporter sought us out and asked what the “general” feeling was in Rocka- way regarding Sandy. It was a fair enough question and provoked some thought. Ultimately we concluded that there is no “gen- eral” feeling. Plenty of people are “sick of hearing about Sandy” so it’s tempting to say that’s the gen- eral feeling. But saying it’s time to move on is an unfair dismissal of those who lost loved ones, to those who remain displaced, and to those who lost jobs and busi- nesses. Some people were trauma- tized and remain so. It’s not our place to say move on. Collective- ly, we all suffered from Sandy. But

we suffered individually. We can move on without telling others to do so. By the same token, many of us can see silver linings and there should be no shame in saying so. Friendships have been forged; opportunities have presented themselves; and some things are simply better than they were. And, of course, Sandy deliv- ered more than destruction. The storm revealed what we have here. The resilience and strength of the people here was always assumed but the storm that changed everything allowed those traits to be demonstrated time and again. There’s a spectrum of feelings and we respect them all. But what can’t be lost is our spirit for fight- ing for what’s right. We might be sick of Sandy and more than ready to move on but when we say move on we want to move on to a safer future (one with jetties); we want to move on to a fair future (with reasonable flood insurance premiums); and we want to move on to a better future (with far bet- ter transportation options like a ferry and the Rockaway rail line). We’re all for moving on --- with vigor in the right direction.

Kevin Boyle you are a JERK. Of course you are a typical Yankee fan. Instead of a congrats, you insult!! No, I don’t look like Steve Bartman-neither do my two sons or other Met fans I know. We have enough love, thanks. This is my last issue of the Rockaway rag, er, Times. Let’s go Mets!!

Brother Knows Best

Dear Editor:

It isn’t often that I write about something that bothers me. Last week the New York Post published an article that I feel I need to ad- dress. The article was titled, “I was demoted because I’m a lesbian.” This article tries to make a case that Ms. Kaplan-DiNola was de- moted because she is a lesbian. At first it’s an eye-catching article for anyone in the LGBT community. We all have fought hard and made our voices heard that this is not ac- ceptable today, tomorrow and any day. We still fight to get legislation passed to prevent discrimination in our community. But this article hit me where it hurts, my family. I will be the first to speak up for our rights to work, live, marry and survive in this world, but I will not stand up for anyone, lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or transgender who uses the LGBT card falsely. Ms. Kaplan-DiNola claims that the former principal and assistant principal used language that was insulting and demeaning based on her sexual orientation. Funny that she is the only one in that school that has made such a claim and no other employee there has stepped up to support her claim. I write this for two reasons; one that former principal is my older sister, Linda Spadaro. You would think that having known and been loved by her for my 60+ gay years that I would know what she is made of. But you don’t need to take my word for it, just look at all the comments left on the Change. org petition that was started by the school’s supporters (I posted a link yesterday). The other reason is, what Ms. Kaplan-DiNola has done is erased years of hard work and long battles that were achieved by those who were truly discriminat- ed against. Yes, I love my sister, but

I know that we were raised by two

very loving parents that instilled in us the values we hold today and that discrimination in any form is not acceptable. Ms. Kaplan-DiNo- la doesn’t owe my sister an apol- ogy, Ms. Kaplan-DiNola owes the LGBT community an apology and to every child in that school who might be LGBT and may have the fear that the school administration is out to harm them.

Vote For Local

Dear Editor:

Next Tues - Nov 3rd - is elec- tion day and a local guy, Michael O’Reilly from Broad Channel, is running for Queens Judge. Mi- chael works as an attorney with a downtown Wall Street firm, born and raised and continuing to live in Broad Channel, and running because he’s a bit fed up with the too-liberal and subsequently too-dangerous judicial system of Queens and NYC. It’s true that too many non- violent drug abusers are in our nation’s prison; but it’s also true that too many hardened & violent criminals and almost unredeem- able recidivists walk our streets and endanger our neighbors and ourselves everyday. Look at the criminal who escaped police hands just last week with over 50

arrests…what’s he doing on the streets in the first place? And, who can forget the Far Rockaway case of a demented son acting wholly irrational in a local hospital and then released by the judge on his own good behavior who goes on to kill one and maim another thera- pist in a Manhattan office bldg. These are not - as you well know

- one off exceptions. Judges these

days see social experiments, while the public sees violent & vicious criminals. Michael, a friend of mine, is no right wing firebrand…he simply wants to add some ‘sense & sen- sibility’ to the Queens courtroom. Also, he’s no career politician. In fact, he’s never run for office be- fore. He knows the law, practices the law and seeks to administer the law to the best of his ability. I understand voting is a hassle, but next week (6AM to 9PM) the voting places will be empty and so you can rush in and rush out prob- ably in five or ten minutes on your way to work in the morning, on your way home, or just before you pick up the kids in the after-

A Tip For St. John’s

Dear Editor:

Just an idea, let’s discuss trans- portation to and from St. John’s Episcopal Hospital. This service can be limited to patients that may need special ongoing treatment, surgery or even ongoing Physical/ Occupational Therapy. There are many people, especially our elder- ly, who do not drive or are not able to use public transportation due to their age or medical issues. Yes there are some who may have dif- ferent types of coverage for trans- portation but what about those who don’t? This may cost the hos- pital money but just think of it this

way “more patients more money” plus the word out there would be, St. John’s Hospital picks you up for that kind of treatment you don’t have to leave the c ommunity. I had been a patient at the emer- gency room of St. John’s Hospital a few times; I have to say nothing but good treatment. Danny Ruscillo

Thumbs Up McFadden

Dear Editor:

(Regarding the article by Ka- tie McFadden and proposes ADA ramps) Nicely done Katie, you covered all the basics. The article was ac- curate and very informative. It is often very hard to get the word out so people better understand the issues that impact our community. Your reporting serves our commu- nity well. Thank you and keep up

Yin Yoga

By Paulette Mancuso

We are fortunate to have a lot of yoga choices in our communi- ty, i.e., different types of classes, different teachers, class times that accommodate life’s sched- ules. People are getting to know how fully practicing by being a part of a class in mind, heart and body promotes lasting benefits and just feels good. You might have seen Yin Yoga being publicized and maybe wondering what it is. Generally speaking yin is opposite of yang and together they form a whole in complete balance. Most yoga practices fortify the yang side as

they are active, physically stim- ulating muscle strength, core strength, balance and increasing energy flow. Yin is the quiet side, the subtle opening/extending of the con- nective tissue in the body: fas- cia (thin sheath of fibrous tis- sue that surrounds everything:

muscles, organs etc), tendons (connecting muscle to bone) and ligaments (connecting bones or cartilages together or holding a joint together). By nature of ev- eryday movement, we do extend the connective tissue, but limited movement causes the connec- tive tissue to shrink, so to speak, thereby causing all it encases to

be not as open and flexible. Imagine two people standing opposite one another, palms up,

fingers pointing forward. I place

a piece of plastic wrap on top of

the tips of their fingers. I then in- struct them to gently move their fingertips back ever so slightly moving away from each other. The plastic wrap begins to stretch

a little and stays in that position

even when they release the pull. This is what happens when we hold certain poses – yin mode – the connective tissue opens a lit- tle, stimulating all cells encased within. The yin yoga practice is one in which you hold poses for several to many minutes. Some may be appropriate to hold for you and some not. When beginning, the most important point is to hon- or your body. We say this in all yoga practices, meaning if you feel pain, pinching, anything that is not a stretch, mindfully come out of the pose. Some yin poses may feel uncomfortable, but that is not the same as pain. An ex- ample of an uncomfortable pose is one in which you feel a little overreach. The first action is to breathe and breathe and breathe. Then wait a moment, and breathe and breathe again. If that does not help, then simply come out of the pose. Next time you might stay longer. Be easy and nurtur-

ing to yourself because yin yoga is a deep practice and it comes along with time. Which brings me to the other facets of this practice. Stillness. Patience. Attention to breath. Peace. Acknowledgement of the benefits of the gentle extension of the connective tissue in the whole body. Everything is wak- ing up! As with any yoga prac- tice, it is not only physical. This is what sets yoga apart. May you be happy, may you be free, may you let go of things that do not serve you, may you have inner peace.

SIRR – Snoozing Interest in Rebuilding and Resilience

SIRR – Snoozing Interest in Rebuilding and Resilience

On Wednesday October 22, the NYC Council’s Committee on Re- building and Resiliency met at City Hall to hold a hearing about the status of the S.I.R.R. (Special Initiative on Rebuilding and Re- silience Report). Yes, believe it or not, way back many years ago, just after hurri- cane Sandy, then Mayor Bloom- berg created a Committee on Re- building and Resilience. What does a Committee on Re- building and Resilience (CRR) do? Well, a better question that was raised at the hearing by Council- man Eric Ulrich was, “What has the Committee been doing all these years?” Councilman Ulrich asked Dan Zarilli, the Chairman of the CRR some very straight for- ward questions! Councilman Ulrich pounded away at Chairman Zarrilli about the slow pace of the “recovery” as there are still hundreds of fami- lies displaced from Hurricane

Sandy. He mentioned the fami- lies still waiting for help all these years later. Councilman Ulrich pounded away with questions on the status of resiliency, he asked “what has been done” with the billions of dollars that came into the City’s hands to better protect his district and other districts which were affected by Hurricane Sandy. Councilman Ulrich asked Chairman Zarilli, “What am I supposed go back to my district and say to them?” The saddest part of Zarilli’s answer came as few seconds of

a blank stare, which is just about

all we can say we have around our

peninsula to date as . Blank Stares! Councilman Ul-

rich stressed that this was not an indictment of Zarrili, but stressed to Zarrilli that he must demand that Mayor de Blasio MUST place

a greater effort in seeing the SIRR report fully implemented-AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!

On Saturday, October 24, the 100 Precinct held a march for Breast Cancer awareness. The march started at the precinct at Beach 94th and headed west to Beach 102nd St, then along east

along Shore Front Pkwy. The march was a great event and in- cluded many families and young people from all over the Penin- sula. (Photo by John Cori)

Hurricane Sandy Leaves a Permanent Mark

By Katie McFadden

As we mark the third anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, some of those affected may be at a point where they want to forget about the storm. Yet despite our best efforts, Sandy is one of those things that you’ll never forget if you went through it. It left a permanent mark on all of us. For some, that permanent mark has become literal. Since the storm, some Sandy survivors have marked the events and experiences of the storm through tattoos. Like everyone who was impact- ed, Sandy was a major event in my

life, having lost the basement and first floor of my home to flood- water, and watching our beautiful community turn into a third-world

country overnight. It was a signifi- cant time and I wanted to mark it in a significant way. I had wanted

a tattoo ever since the first anni-

versary, but it seemed too soon. By the second year, I knew I was ready. I went to Pete & Cubo’s in Ozone Park on October 28, 2014

and asked the artists to write “After

a hurricane comes a Rainbow” on

the inside of my right bicep (sorry, Mom). It may sound cheesy, and

it will sound even cheesier when

It may sound cheesy, and it will sound even cheesier when I say it’s a lyric
