Riis is the Word:
BATHHOUSE NOW OPEN TO PROPOSALS
By Katie McFadden

The Riis Park Bathhouse is
officially up for grabs. The National Park Service has released
a Request for Proposals for the
historic bathhouse, as well as
the surrounding East Wing Pavilion and Courtyard. Interested parties have until March 9
to propose plans for how this
beachfront property could be
used.
Riis Park, part of National Parks
of New York Harbor's Gateway
National Recreation Area, is on
the upswing. Riis Park Beach Bazaar has brought new life to Riis
Park since opening in 2015 and
now NPS is looking to put more
space to good use. The iconic
bathhouse opened in 1932, but
has gone unused for several decades. The buildings were further
damaged by Hurricane Sandy,
but NPS started to restore them
in 2015. Now they’re looking for
something to fill them.

There is work to do inside.

"The Jacob Riis Bathhouse is
an iconic structure and represents an exciting opportunity for
creative entrepreneurs to join
the growing business community already established at Jacob
Riis Park, to include Thomas
Caterers, Riis Park Pitch-n-Putt,
and the Riis Park Beach Bazaar,"

said Gateway's Superintendent
Jen Nersesian. "This is an opportunity to highlight the area's
history and usher in a new era
for these important structures
so we're looking for innovative
proposals that will contribute to
the vibrancy of Riis Park and the
surrounding community."

The RFP includes use of the
two-story, 30,000 square-foot
bathhouse, the 9,900 squarefoot Entry Pavilion, the one-story 2,100 square-foot East Wing
Pavilion, and a portion of the
courtyard between the bathhouse and the Pavilion. NPS
hopes to make immediate use
of the Entry Pavilion and the
first floor of the bathhouse,
with those areas being utilized
by summer 2017. The eastern
wing of the Bathhouse currently houses lifeguards, so NPS is

An Overseas Tease
If you like early bird specials
and Happy Hours, sometimes
you miss history being made.
(Which is a good thing generally because you don’t want to
be the one making history after
Happy Hour).
I missed history the last couple of weeks. I stayed with
the Cubs and Indians until a
few minutes before midnight
(I don’t know how I lasted
that long!) but I couldn’t stay
awake for the Cubs’ dramatic
history-making win. I woke
up to a text from my eldest
son, not the one in Ireland. He
said: Wow. Some game! I still
didn’t know who won until I
turned on the TV.
As for that presidential thing
I crashed long before midnight and didn’t know who was
President until I checked my

email from Ireland Wednesday
morning. The son who is studying abroad and who will remain nameless wrote: I guess
I’m staying.
He’s got to rely on old-fashioned email these days because his phone went missing
so he can’t wake me in the
middle of the night with a text.
I check my email first thing in
the morning instead. I read it
again: I guess I’m staying.
That tells me who won the
election.
At first I thought he was depressed that Donald Trump
had won and was just gonna
stay on the ancestral grounds.
Turns out he was working another angle. He knew I didn’t like
Trump since before Marla Maples. And Trump’s gracious campaigning wouldn’t change that.
And he knew last week’s Boyleing
Points about the Pope and Trump
was going to be hated by 74 percent of the people in Rockaway.
The polling numbers say
Rockaway is the Staten Island

of Queens. But we’re no Borough Park.
Quick aside, somebody said I
should be ashamed about what
I wrote about the Pope. Huh?
Trump calls him a disgrace and
I should be ashamed? Sheesh,
have someone explain it to you.
I was paying the Pope a compliment. Love the Pope. The
other guy, not so much).
Pretty soon, I guess the paper
won’t be free any longer – I’ll
have to pay people to read it. I
don’t like de Blasio and I didn’t
vote for Meeks, ok?
Anyway, my son figured I’d
be kicked out of Rockaway and
moving to Ireland. There is an
upside, he said as a tease.
I couldn’t imagine one.
Yeah?
You promised when I was 9
if we moved to Ireland I could
get a dog. I’ll be holding you
to that.
I protested: I said New Zealand!
He shot back: You said Ireland qualified, too. And I

made you sign an agreement!
I was still in that post-election fog because the first thing I
thought, that’s the worst agreement since NAFTA and I’m
gonna have to renegotiate.
But he wasn’t done. It’s sunny here today.
He was killing me. And you
know the Guinness is so
much better over here.
Now he’s got me thinking. Or
tinking, as they say. Rainbows,
country lanes, such nice people. Maybe start a newspaper
over there. I start googling Aer
Lingus and one-way tickets.
But then he goes too far. He
wants two dogs. I was thinking a Huskie and a bulldog.
The rainbows vanish. The sun
goes dark. I see rain and steady
drizzle. I feel my arthur-ritis and
me aching knees. And I see myself on that country lane, alone,
cold and miserable, walking the
dogs because no one else will.
I know how that works. I’m
staying.

November Community Board Recap
By Katie McFadden

Community Board 14 met this
past Monday at West End Temple
to discuss issues relating to transportation, parks and education.
CB began with public speaking.
Stacey Eliuk, of Public Advocate
Letitia James' office, introduced
herself. Newly elected assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato
came to thank the community
for its support. Bruce Jacobs of
the Coalition of the Rockaways
brought up issues including added bus stops to the ferry shuttle,
questions about what’s going on
with Peninsula Hospital, and to
show his support for Select Bus
Service. Beth Gutman spoke about
programming at the Neponsit
Adult Day Healthcare Center on
Beach 102nd Street, which offers
services to seniors with varying
medical needs. Margaret Frantz,
Chief Patient Experience Officer
at St. John’s Hospital, said they
are looking to start a Patient and
Family Advisory Council, made
up of patients and family members that have been at the hospital

in the past five years. There will be
an interview process and the first
meeting will be held in January. A
man named Eugene brought up
issues with the $91 million plan to
revitalize Downtown Far Rockaway, particularly bringing in large
residential buildings. He advised
people to check out solutionsny.
nyc/downtownfarrock.html for
more information.
The Transportation Committee recapped some of the issues
discussed at committee meetings
this month. There was a meeting
on the funds for the ferry project,
which can only be spent on capital
projects like amenities and infrastructure around the boat venue.
Some ideas that were brought up
were purchasing extra boats, temperature controlled waiting rooms
and improving the pedestrian area
on Beach Channel Drive or making a land bridge. The NYC DDC
and DOT presented a plan to improve Beach Channel Drive from
Beach 116th to Beach 124th in a
$15.7 million project. Construction is expected to start in the fall
of 2017 and be completed by De-

We offer a

catering op"ons!

cember 2018. Construction will
take place Monday to Friday and
one lane will be open at all times.
Finally, the committee addressed
the Select Bus Service plan and
expressed their views against it
due to the elimination of bus stops
in Rockaway, as well as vehicle
traffic lanes and several left turns
along Cross Bay and Woodhaven
Boulevards. Marty Ingram asked
the board to vote on the plan, but
a city representative requested a
joint meeting with the MTA and
DOT to present the full plan to
the Community Board in January.
The Board agreed to having them
come back to present the plan.
The Parks Committee discussed
the plans for Sunset Cove in Broad
Channel. The plan includes an
outdoor classroom, a seasonal
dock and gang plank and a boardwalk over the wetlands. The classroom and dock would be for student and scientist use only. The
boardwalk would be made from
wood salvaged from the Rockaway boardwalk. There was an issue in which the boardwalk was
shortened by the DEC, but Broad

Channel requested it to extend to
the Tidal Inlet. It is expected that
this will be rectified. The Board
voted in support of the plan. A recap of the summer season showed
that 6.8 million people visited the
beach this summer, which was
short of the expected 10 million
due to poor weather in August.
With the full boardwalk open,
additional employees were hired
this summer and new techniques
were applied to keep the beaches cleaner. A future meeting will
be held to discuss issues with the
bike lanes and Parks employees
on ATVs, but a motion had passed
to ban non-uniformed personnel
from using ATVs.
The Education & Youth Committee had been criticized for
not holding enough meetings, so
they’ve been taking action to do
more lately. They’ve been reaching out to every school and coordinating with PTA's to find out
what issues the schools are dealing with. They've held two public
meetings to bring parents together
to express concerns and are taking
action to resolve issues.

The Idea Guys

Plunge Right In
By Rick Horan

Ok, enough weeks have
passed since our introductory column about a foot
pedal for toilets.
Even
though so many of my ideas
should end up in the toilet I
didn’t want readers to think
this column was all about
the place they used to call
the water closet.
The
Problem:
Toilet
plungers that are ugly, ineffective and messy.
The Big Idea:
Pongtu.
My daughter discovered it
and knew it was something
I’d appreciate.
Invented
in South Korea, the Pongtu might finally allow us to
end our love/hate relationship with plungers.
Pongtu is a thin sheet of
yellow plastic that seals

to the edges of the toilet
opening. Once in place you
simply flush. Magically the
middle of the plastic rises
a few inches at which time
you need to push it back
down a few times until the
toilet clears. Less than a
minute, at least according
to the video (search Pongtu
on YouTube).
Word to the wise: Don’t
forget to take the plastic
off and toss it, otherwise
you will have a real mess
on your hands the next time
someone sits down. Or being accused of pulling an
old (im)practical joke.
Got any great ideas? If you
do, and don’t mind someone
else getting rich off it, send
it to us at Mail@Rockawaytimes.com. This column is a
group effort.

Report:
DOI Looking At
Dayton Beach Co-op
According to a report by
Katie Honan of DNAInfo,
the Department of Investigation (D OI) is speaking to residents at the
Dayton Beach Park coop apartments following
complaints by shareholder tenants who claim mismanagement and possible
corruption by the Dayton Board. The residents
say their complaints have
gotten nowhere with the
Department of Housing
Preser vation and Development (HPD), the agenc y overseeing the Shore
Front Parkway buildings
from 8100-8900, which are
part of the Mitchell-Lama
program. The program, established in the 1960’s, allows qualified applicants

to purchase units at a lower-than-market rate price.
Such an agreement does
not allow for market rate
re-selling by owners.
In the DNAInfo stor y, Honan cited sources that indicated the investigation is
focused on more than two
dozen empty apartments
at the buildings, despite
a long waiting list. Empty apartments suggest to
some that “warehousing ”
is going on as the board
allegedly is considering
a vote to disengage from
Mitchell-Lama. Free of
the program, shareholders
would be given the chance
to resell apartments at
market rate.
More than 1,000 apartments are in the complex .

PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!

of Donald Trump's recent election
victory will cause you emotional
stress, please immediately cease
reading this column and retreat to
any designated safe space located
well outside the realm of reality!
On the morning after last
week's general election while
the rest of the country (some sad,
some happy) got out of bed and
went to work, pathos devolved
into absurdity on many college
campuses when university administrators decided to treat

like kindergarten students rather
than undergraduates attending
institutions of higher learning as
the reality of the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States set in.
There were campus wide "cryins" with tissues and hot chocolate
being handed out. Some colleges
offered coloring books, Play-Doh
and arts and crafts sessions to
help assuage the discomfort being experienced by their students.
Students gathered in groups on
campuses, hands held high with
middle fingers extended accompanied by such intellectual protest signage as "F&;%$ Donald
Trump" and "F&;%$ America."
Of course, since no protest these
days is complete without it, there
was also the requisite burning
of American flags. Classes and
exams were cancelled either because the students were too upset
to attend or their professors too
distraught to teach. Are these so
called intellectuals so dense as to
not realize that this type of insular and entitled behavior, when
viewed by normal working class

citizens, was a contributing factor
in Trump's win? Additionally, I am
at a loss to explain how parents,
shelling out tens of thousands of
dollars in tuition for the education
of these special snowflakes, tolerate this type of behavior on the
part of their children.
I want to send a special "shout
out" to all those self-important
and politically correct Hollywood and other celebrities who
thought they had their fingers
on the pulse of America and
could help sway the election
with empty threats to leave the
country if Donald Trump won.
To put it bluntly, nobody cared!
By the way, if the individual(s) who removed the "Trump
- Pence 2016" banner hanging
across Cross Bay Boulevard by
the 17th Road Park on Election
Day thought they were making a
political statement, they should
know that their act of vandalism
did not go unnoticed as it was
quite the topic of discussion
among the residents of Broad
Channel as they traveled to P.S.

have been told, 80 percent went

To our Democrat friends who
are discomfited by the awkward
situation of having their hopes
of retaining the presidency
dashed, they would do well to
heed the advice of two of their
more well-known colleagues
regarding their Democrat victories - New York Senator William
L. Marcy who stated way back in
1828 "To the victor belongs the
spoils..." and more currently,
our very own President Barack
Obama who stated "Elections
have consequences and at the
end of day, I won!" while lecturing House Republican Whip
Eric Cantor back in 2009.
In closing, I should tell you
that when the Chicago Cubs
won the World Series in Game
7 on November 2, just six days
prior to the election it should
have been clear to everyone that
a win by Donald Trump was not
all that implausible!

Dog Park Re-Opens: Tails Wag!
By Dan Guarino

It sure is a dog’s life in
Rockaway. And it just got
even better.
On Saturday, November 12,
tails were wagging as community members, pet owners, elected officials and NYC
Parks personnel gathered to
cut the ribbon on the now
renovated Rockaway Freeway
Dog Park.
Guests of honor included
dogs of all sizes, breeds and
ages at the nearly two acre
park dedicated to them at
Beach 83rd Street and Beach
Channel Drive. It is the largest such park in Queens.
“It’s a great day for dogs, a
great day for Rockaway dog
owners, and a great day for
the Rockaways,” Councilman
Eric Ulrich noted at the ceremony. “It shows you what the
community can do.” Ulrich
himself owns a Yorkie.
In fact funds for the renovation were initially secured
through Councilman Ulrich’s

Participatory Budget initiative by the Allied Rockaway
Foundation for Animal Recreation and Fitness. Or as
they are better known, ARFARF. According to NYC Park’s
Chief of Staff for Communications Meghan Lalor, “The
scope of construction includes new pathways, double
gates for control, and a drink-

ing fountain outfitted with a
special dog bowl. Fencing
was provided for the dog
agility area, and a separate
area for small dogs was created. Construction began this
summer, and the project took
four months to complete.”
The project cost $400,000.
ARF-ARF describes the spot
as having been desolate for

they say, “with full support
from the Community Board
and NYC Parks, the dog park
was born.” They also credit
then NYC Parks Administrator for Rockaway Jill Weber
for “helping us build from
nothing. Without (her), there
would not have been an ARFARF.”
The group acquired the
funds needed for renovations
four years ago. Hurricane
Sandy did push the project
back, but as of now it is complete.
Taking part in the opening
were Ulrich, Dolores Orr of

Bungalow Bar: A Taste Of Something New
By Dan Guarino

With days getting shorter
and cooler, this is the perfect
time to come indoors and
make some discoveries.
For instance, did you know it
takes more than a good meal to
make a restaurant? Presentation,
preparation, service, variety,
warmth and atmosphere are all
important. Fortunately, Bungalow Bar has them all, and serves
a great meal. As restaurant rich
as Rockaway is, this longtime
favorite is a stand out. Now it’s
ready to offer up new discoveries
with a new Fall menu.
Bungalow Bar and Restaurant, 377 Beach 92nd Street,
sits just off Beach Channel
Drive, along the edge of Jamaica Bay. Stepping inside you’ll
feel both right at home and intriguingly surprised.
During summer the spacious
back deck, with its own bar,
outside tent and lawn seating
offer sublime seasonal dining.
Bungalow Bar’s inside dining
room is just as inviting now

that it is fall, falling towards
winter. A real wood burning
fireplace offers a warm glow
as couples, families and single
parties enjoy a night out.
The local staff, who are quick,
attentive and knowledgeable,
dart about in casual Bungalow
Bar sweatshirts and t-shirts,
and never fail to make sure
each customer is comfortable
and taken care of.
So how’s the food? In a few
words- fresh, surprising and
tasty. Bungalow Bar has decided to shake things up by offering a new array of entrees that
will keep even regulars coming back. Dinner specials will
change every two weeks. There
are also Panini and lunch specials every day til 5 p.m. which
change every week. Plus their
$10 specials feature items like
their signature burger, fresh
fish sandwich and shrimp with
orzo, along with a beverage,
from 11:30 to 7 p.m.
The dinner menu has dishes
such as pumpkin ravioli, fresh
split pea soup with ham, striped

sea bass, and charbroiled Porterhouse steak for two.
All items at Bungalow Bar,
even down to the soups and
sauces, are made fresh and
in-house. The proof is on the
plate. If you’ve ever had a meal
in Ireland’s countryside or a
burger in Nevada, you’ll know
that taste. It’s usually called

“farm fresh.”
Try the cream of broccoli soup. What you’ll find is
far from bland. Rather than
chunky floating florets, the
vegetable is woven into a
smooth blend with cheddar
cheese and other tastes to

DOG PARK RE-OPENS

Continued from Page 11

nity, with Parks, with everyone here,” McEneaney-Feuer
said. “We couldn’t do this
without the support of the
community.”
As dogs ran or ambled
about, played, sniffed, made
new friends, explored the
park, and yes, occasionally
marked new territory, Ul-

rich’s Deputy Chief of Staff
Robby Schwach, also a dog
owner, pointed out the important social aspect of the
re-opened park. He noted
that many otherwise disparate people get to know each
other through the park, and
being ‘dog people,' he and
others mentioned that many
friendships and even social outings had developed

through it. Schwach said, “Of
course this is an important
day for our ‘canine American,’ too.”
“Yes,” he joked, “we’ve
gone to the dogs!”
Stopping by the renovated Rockaway Freeway Dog
Park on Saturday, dog owner and resident Susan Jasper
summed things up this way.
“After four long months we

Page 17
have finally gotten our dog
park back. If you are a dog
owner who has never visited it’s time to take a walk,
or ride, (down) and join in
the fun. When my own dogs,
Frankie and Lilly, finally got
back to the park last week,
they clapped their paws with
joy and I definitely heard
them exclaim, "Howl-eleujah!”

Canines and owners make the most of a day in the park.

There was the pro-Trump:
Nice While It Lasted…. I was
enjoying your paper for a while
because it focused on positive
news in Rockaway. But after
your editorial bashing Trump
today, I’d like you to remove
me from your mailing list.
*** I voted for Trump and I
would vote for him even if the
Pope was running. :)
*** I voted for Trump the
man.
***With all the crap on my
own Facebook wall, I have to

see it here, too? Get over the
damn election. He won period.
Cleaning up my wall, you are
next !
*** How unusual for you - a
political Boyleing Points. It
may interest you to know that
I too voted against the criminal pathologic liar. Trump is,
to say the least, a little rough
around the edges but he's not
a polished politician. I think,
or at least hope, that he will be
a good president, especially
as it pertains to the economy.
He will remove blocks to business growth and the energy
industry. I hope he doesn't get
bogged down with immigration issues. We'll see.
Too bad Alan Zwirn lost nice guy.
There was the other side:
Boyle me boyo, ya hit the ball
out of the park. Right on every
point. Me and da Pope grieve
for OUR LADY, MOTHER OF
GOD, no not that one, I mean
the earth who is weeping, as all
the fossil fuel companies are
merrily dancing a jig on the
grave of the earth and leaving a
mess for our grandchildren.

***Thanks, Kevin. We could
use some levity right about
now to distract us from what's
to come with a Trump presidency. Keep it coming. :)
***You are brave.
***I (and the Pope) wish you
had written this BEFORE the
election!
***Well, I always like Boyleing
Points but this one was bigly
tremendous.

Candidate Thanks
Dear Editor,
It was a great honor to have
been selected to run as a candidate to represent the residents
of the 23rd NY State Assembly District located in South
Queens. The numerous hard
working, concerned, and welcoming people I was fortunate
to meet and speak with across
the entire district during my
candidacy continually uplifted
my spirits. Yes, there can be a
brighter tomorrow for all!
I want to congratulate my opponent for the Assembly seat,
Stacey Pheffer Amato, on her
victory in this race. She ran a

Page 19
straightforward, clean campaign. I can only hope she
works hard to represent and
help the people of the 23rd AD
over the next two years.
To all the volunteers, supporters, donors, and, in the
end, the voters, who stood by
and for me during the campaign, and on Election Day,
I must say, I am humbled by
your efforts on my behalf. The
words, “Thank You”, are not
enough to show my appreciation for you, your generosity,
and the faith you placed in me.
The final results on November
8 may not have gone our way
this time, but I was fortunate to
have all of you on my side. The
campaign was a great experience for me, highlighted by
the many new friends and acquaintances I made along the
way. For that, I will be forever
grateful.
May the numerous issues
facing “We, the People” of the
23rd NY State Assembly District, be resolved in a timely
manner, and in our favor.
Respectfully, with gratitude,
Alan Zwirn

LIGHTING UP THE CHANNEL

By Katie McFadden

Christmas cheer will once
again come to Broad Channel.
With the 5th Annual Broad
Channel Christmas Lights
Drive underway, the lighted
holiday garlands are set to
brighten Cross Bay Boulevard later this month. On Friday, November 18, those who
helped to make this tradition
possible will have a chance to
receive a gift of their own in a
$5,000 giveaway.
For the fifth year in a row,
Stephanie Wagner is helping to bring holiday lights to
Broad Channel. The annual
tradition started after Hurricane Sandy. “I was raising
money after the storm to help
out residents and someone
suggested we decorate the
town a little bit because it was
so depressing. We reached out
to different companies and
partnered with PC Richards,
which donated gift cards, so
we were able to have a Christ-

mas party in the town and
raffle off the gift cards and we
used the rest of the money to
put our lights up. Now this has
become a tradition,” Wagner
said. “In light of all that our
little town has been through,
I like to remember this as one
good thing that came from a
disastrous time. Now, these
lights serve as a reminder of
all that we are capable of. We
are a small town, but we are a
mighty one.”
For the past few weeks,
Wagner, with the help of
other locals, has been selling $50 raffle tickets to raise
money for the lights. Over
the past four years, every

Guardianship, Real Estate Matters

ticket has sold out and as
we go to press, Wagner says
they pulled it off again, with
all 400 tickets officially sold
out. The winners will be chosen at 8 p.m. on Friday at the
Bungalow Bar.
The first place winner gets a
whopping $5,000, but there are
plenty of prizes for runner-ups.
Second place gets $1,000, third
and fourth place gets $500, fifth
gets $250 and five others will
win a $100 prize each. Santa’s
little helpers also get a gift. The
person who sold the grand prize
ticket gets $500. While the main
giveaway tickets are sold out, a
chance at the Mega 50/50 can
be purchased for $10 at www.
bclights16.eventbrite.com.
Winners do not need to be
present at Friday’s event, but
it’s going to be a fun time for
those who attend. The event,
which is open to the public,
will feature drink specials, a
50/50, and music by DJ Paddy
Tubz of DJs@Work, who is donating his time to the cause.

Wagner spearheads the
fundraiser, but calls it a
community effort. “We’re a
part of this great community that works together. I
like that the town raises the
money on our own because
there are other towns that
get them and have companies that donate them, but
like most things in Broad
Channel, we take things into
our own hands,” she said.
The community’s efforts will
come to light after Friday’s
event. The light company,
Illuminations by Arnold, is
expected to install the decorations sometime around
Thanksgiving weekend and
they will remain hanging
until mid-January.
The Broad Channel Christmas Lights are a tradition that
will live on for many years to
come. “Hopefully we continue the tradition, but with
all of the support we get, it
makes it easier to do it every
year,” Wagner said.

make a creamy satisfying dish.
If you’re in the mood for
starters, prepare for appetizers
that are almost a meal in themselves. The tasty scallops Benedict, for instance, are served on
circles of grill-toasted bread and
swimming in Béarnaise sauce.
The buffalo chicken dip
comes in a piping hot small

skillet, lined with toasted pita
wedges. It’s a cheesy, thick and
colorful dish with just the right
amount of spiciness and quite
a variety of tastes and textures
within it.
As for the new line of entrees, the hearty grilled chicken breast comes highly recommended. Like the other
main dishes on Bungalow Bar’s
menu, its portions fill the plate.

Try the Chicken in Tequila Cream Sauce (Photos by Dan Guarino)

The chicken is slow broiled
just right. The outside is crisp
and tastes and smells like it’s
fresh off the barbecue, while
the inside is unbelievably tender. It is also cooked with a tequila cream sauce, with jalapenos and shallots, which adds
whole new layers of tastes.
It’s served with flavored rice
with scallion and carrot pieces
and black beans.

The Rockaway Times
If you still have room, you
can also try the apple crumb
pie with ice cream or the chocolate Tartufo. I left full !
Whatever you order, you can be
sure that Bungalow Bar will have
something new and exciting for
you to try the next time you come
in. So go exploring, and get ready
for a taste of the unexpected.
Bungalow Bar is located at
377 Beach 92nd Street.

Creating prosperity and
abundance in our lives is a
balance well worth the work
to get there. By prosperity I
mean comfort, security, ease,
an overall sense of well-being.
By abundance I mean lots of
prosperity. Many of us walk
around day after day getting
things done, traveling to here
and there, worrying about this
or that, generally closed in on
ourselves. I knew someone
from grade school who always
walked with her head down
pushing one foot in front of another in a very determined way.
She never saw anything around
her. I guess it was a habit, but
she was missing out on so
much. There was no space to
observe the bird on the wire or
the smile of a passerby or the
color of the sky. No openness.
No receptivity.
Making space to have the intention to live with an overall
sense of well-being is the first
step. Making space is creating
a habit to “stop, look and listen” (as my dear Dad frequently reminded us). Opening up
to the possibilities in the universe. In this column, we often
talk about slowing down, trying
to relax, calming the chatter
in the head. Time passes so
quickly – before you know it another year goes by. Before you
know it another five years go
by and we can be in the same
boat. Intention is a very powerful tool to create prosperity
and abundance. I think the
trick is really being clear about
what well-being means to you.
That takes time to ponder. That
takes space and opening to new
ideas. That takes releasing the
walls down around the heart.

Energy is a power that gets
mustered up and channeled
with repeated focus/intention. Once it gets mustered up,
however, there needs to be an
open channel of flow. It’s hard
to describe what that feels like
and I imagine it is different for
everyone. It is an openness,
an ease, a comfort that the efforts you are putting out there
to have prosperity and abundance in your life will flow. It is
a recognition, a realization that
the energy is flowing in to the
heart and out in a continuous
unbreakable circle.
Really ask the question: what
would make me feel well and
happy? It might take a while.
And once you put it out there
– no expectation. Things never happen in the time that
we want them to happen. So
trust in this: energy follows
intention. When you are clear
about intent, the energy will
gather behind that intention
and push it forward. There
must be a clear passage, however, for the flow to happen.
So, making space, being clear
about what it is that you want
and creating the foundation for
your everlasting prosperity and
abundance.
All this takes time. Be clear.
Be patient. You will reap the
fruits of your labor: the efforts
you make to check in with
yourself about what it really is
that will bring you to that balanced place. Set the intention
every morning and every night.
Clear the heart-space so the energy has room to move. Accept
the gift that finds a home there.
May you be happy. May you
be free. May you be grateful.
May you let go of things that do
not serve you. May you have
inner peace.

These are rates for non-tobacco users in our Preferred Best category and do not include any riders. If you continue
the policy beyond the initial level-premium period (in this case, 10 years), premiums will then increase annually
through age 95 but will never be more than the maximum stated in the contract. In Montana, rates for females are
the same as those for males. Paying more often than annually will result in higher premiums. Availability and
actual rates will vary based on how you satisfy our underwriting and eligibility criteria. The issuing company may
have the right to contest the policy for misrepresentation or to apply a suicide clause. Rates as of August 2014.
Term essential is issued by Pruco Life Insurance Company in all states except New York, where it is issued by
Pruco Life Insurance Company of New Jersey. Both are Prudential Financial companies located in Newark, NJ.
Each is solely responsible for its own financial condition and contractual obligations. The policy form number is

By Artie Wallace
As the temperature
starts to drop people
think about things
like drafts coming in
doors, covering A/C
units, air leaking in
around windows. But
not everyone thinks
about garage doors.
A lot of houses have
garages attached to
the house, and that
cool air in the garage
makes it harder to
heat the house. Insulating your garage
door can help with
your heating bill more
than you think.
An important thing
you need to think
about is weight. Insulation adds weight to
the door and makes it

The Rockaway Times

It's Getting
Cooler Out

harder to lift. It also
puts extra stress on
garage door openers. So only use lightweight
insulation.
I recommend using
the foam insulation
boards with the foil
on both sides.
For garage doors
with exposed frames
on the inside, the
task is simple. Cut
the insulation boards
to fit snug between
the framing and fit it
in. You can even use
strips of the insulation board to fill the
depth of the frames
and help hold your
boards in place.
Vinyl
and
wood
doors take a little
more work. Cut the
boards to fit over the

panels. Secure them
using screws with
washers. Be sure that
the screws are not too
long, you don’t want
them to go through
the door.
If you're still getting air leaking in between the door panels, you can attach a
strip of vinyl about
six inches wide to the
door above. Do not
attach to the bottom
door, to allow free
movement.
Another important
thing to check is the
weather
stripping.
On the outside of the
garage door there are
moldings with weatherstripping that keep
the air from coming
in around the sides

and the top of the
door. Check them for
wear and replace if
needed.
This is a low cost investment and you will
feel the difference

in rooms above and
around the garage.

ARVERNE BY THE
SEA SOUVENIR
POST CARD 1908

Cajun Stuffed
Chicken
By Sharon Feldman

Serves: 4
Ingredients:
4 boneless, skinless chicken
breasts
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup diced onion
1 cup red and green pepper, diced
Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
By Emil R. Lucev, Sr. & his
daughter Katie Lucev

This early souvenir card of
Arverne by the Sea is very colorful and enhanced with a sea
shell border. It is postmarked
as being mailed in 1908. The
shells and script are embossed,

but the printer seems to have
goofed as the printing is out of
register. Gold and green lettering, with shell outlines in gold
confuse the eye. Despite these
flaws, many of these cards were
found in dealers’ collections for
sale to serious enthusiastic post
card collectors.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a skillet over medium heat,
heat olive oil. Add onions and
peppers. Sauté onions and
peppers and cook until tender, approximately 8 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper.
Remove from heat and let cool
slightly.

The Rockaway Times
With a sharp paring knife,
slice the chicken breast to create a pocket. Repeat with all
four breasts. Stuff each with
¼ vegetable mixture, then top
with ¼ cup cheddar cheese.
Rub all sides of the chicken
breast with ½ tablespoon Cajun seasoning, then salt and
pepper.
Place chicken breasts in a
large baking dish and bake until cooked through, about 23-30
minutes. Serve while cheese is
hot and bubbly!

Life With Our
“Artistic” Child
By Kami-Leigh Agard

Special Ed +
Common Core

IT JUST DOES NOT ADD UP
My daughter is eight-years
old, on the Autism spectrum
and non-verbal. When she was
13-months old, she recited her
ABCs. She would giggle as I
coaxed her to count from oneto-ten. I was elated, boasting to
everyone about her budding academic prowess.
We used to play the Baby Einstein DVDs, thinking that this
was a progressive move on our
part to cognitively develop her
brain. We vainly thought that
listening to classical music such
as Mozart would propel her to
be a child prodigy!
However at three-years old,
she was not communicating verbally. My family reassured me,
“Every child develops differently, stop putting that pressure on
her.” I was suspicious and worried. After going through NYC’s
Early Intervention process, she
was diagnosed with PDD-NOS
(Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified). Yet, when we together
read her then favorite book,
“Good Night Moon,” she used
to repeat the words. I would be

tickled pink when I heard her
repeat, “Mooooon!”
However, slowly I noticed that
she no longer said any words.
She used to say, “Mm-oore,”
“Wat-ah,” “Chips,” “Pl-eese,”
with an English accent, like her
Mummy! All these words slowly
began to dissipate.
Today she does not communicate verbally at all. She is in
a District 75 school with loving
and dedicated teachers, therapists and paraprofessionals. The
question I pose is how are Common Core Standards adding to
my daughter’s academic development within an intensive
Special Education program?
Well-intended
education
architects designed the Common Core Standards “as a
set of high-quality academic
standards in mathematics and
English language arts/literacy
(ELA). These learning goals outline what a student should know
and be able to do at the end of
each grade. They were created
to ensure that all students graduate from high school with the
skills and knowledge necessary

to succeed in college, career,
and life, regardless of where they
live.” Also, to be on a competitive platform with their global
peers in China, India, Russia,
and well, everywhere beyond
American soil.
This is the conundrum.
My daughter cannot even
spell her name, much less complete an addition problem. As
a special education student,
she has an Individualized Education Program (IEP). This is
a document that is developed
for each public school child
who needs special education. It
spells out your child's learning
needs, the services the school
will provide and how progress
will be measured. Progress?
When I receive her IEP report,
which I also refer to as “Ignore
Education Program,” I cringe.
All the results she has received
after four years in NYC’s public education system is: 1) Little Progress Made, anticipating
goal or 2) Progress Made, goal
not yet met.
What to do? I believe Common Core Standards puts pressure on passionate educators

Page 41
and concerned parents. There is
no magic wand. I do not care if
my daughter does not go to college or become a mad scientist
like her dad! All I want is for her
to live independently and courageously.
Tune in to the next column.
Hear from passionate educators
who shed light on this important subject.
I would like to end with this
note from my thoughtful 4thgrade student, “I think Trump
and Hillary should work together
to inspire people to work hard,
and to inspire children to study
so when they grow up, they can
be the best they can be!”
I don’t talk about autism for
sympathy or pity. My desire is
to open doors into the reality
of our lives as caregivers, build
understanding, tolerance and
growth of our “artistic” children.
Please do share your thoughts
and stories by emailing me at
ourartisticchild@outlook.com.
I would love your feedback! Also
please come to the Rockaway
Beach “Artistic" Families support group. Email us for venue
details.

RIIS IS THE WORD

Continued from Page 3
looking for proposals that would
accommodate them or relocate
them to the East Wing Pavilion
or Courtyard area, to make full
use of the bathhouse. Any plans
for the courtyard must be temporary or movable. All aspects
of the proposal must maintain
the historic aspect of the buildings. Any work proposed in
connection with the adaptive
reuse of the facilities must be in
keeping with The Secretary of
the Interior (SOI) Standards for
the Treatment of Historic Properties (36 CFR 68). All proposals
and plans must also address
storm preparedness in a postSandy world. The lessee would
be responsible for utility costs,
ADA compliant facilities, snow
removal, trash removal, and
flood, liability and property insurance.
NPS is looking for a proposal with a lease term minimum
of 10 years. An NPS evaluation
panel will review all responses
resulting from the RFP and will
pay special attention to certain
criteria including use of the

Park Officials gave the Rockaway
Times a tour.

Great rooftop views!

space, the offerer’s financial capability to carry-out the terms
of lease and amount of rent offered, the experience of the offeror demonstrating managerial capability to carry out terms
of the lease, sustainability and
preservation. They are looking
for proposals that would make
use of the facilities for an extended operating season or yearround use. Some ideas NPS has
mentioned include a Bathhouse

that includes showers, lockers,
and retail offerings; Restaurants
or other food and beverage opportunities; Entertainment and
play areas; Educational/art
event space; Mixed Use which
includes residential, studio, or
similar use; Retail opportunities;
Day camps; Courtyard performances; and Farmers Markets,
but proposals are not limited to
these uses.
One of the biggest draws of the
bathhouse is the second floor
rooftop space. It could potentially make for a great rooftop bar or
dining area, but NPS warns that
this area has no utility service
and it is not clear whether this
area, in its current condition, can
support significant weight.
With such a prime space up
for grabs, some have already
started to express interest. The
owners of Riis Park Beach Bazaar are among them. "We've
done multiple walk throughs
of the Bathhouse and it is definitely on our radar. It's a pretty
amazing space with ridiculous
potential,” co-founder Belvy
Klein said. “Our experience
with Riis, and Rockaway in

The Rockaway Times
general, has been nothing short
of awesome and we'd love to
take a swing at this." A homegrown local, Eugene Brennan,
Managing Partner at Park Avenue Tavern, says his group is
also eyeballing the property.
"It's an amazing space with so
much potential. We're going to
take a look and hopefully come
up with a proposal that works,"
Brennan said.
The full RFP can be found
online at www.nps.gov/gate/
getinvolved/lease-facilities-inriis-beach-for-adaptive-reuse.
htm . All proposals must be
received by 4 p.m. on March
9, 2017. Anyone who wants to
request a tour or ask questions
about the properties can email
Gateway_bmd@nps.gov. Proposals can also be emailed to
that address or mailed to Superintendent, Gateway National Recreation Area, 210 New
York Avenue, Staten Island, NY
10305, Attention: Bathhouse
RFP. All mailed submissions
must include two paper copies
of the proposal and a CD/ DVD
or memory stick containing a
PDF of the proposal.

St. Francis Boys Are Champs
The St. Francis de Sales Novice Boys (5th grade) completed their Cinderella season by
beating St. Patrick on Sunday,
November 13 for the CYO Soccer Championship. The boys
ended the regular season in a
tie for 4th place, having battled
just to even make the playoffs.
In a stunning upset on November 6, they beat undefeated Blessed Trinity in a
2-1 overtime victory with the
game winning goal by Ahmed
Hakim, bringing the boys to
the championship game.
During the championship
game, SFDS went into the 2nd
half, down 1-0. It wasn't until
there were 5 minutes of play
left when Matthew Martin tied
it up, bringing the game into
overtime.
It was during the 2nd overtime that Matthew Stack
scored the game-winning
goal, with another insurance
goal by Matthew Martin with
one minute left on the clock to
make it a 3-1 final.
