Albany is playing games again, and it looks like those of us who enjoy our state parks might be the losers!
Let me introduce my wonderful nephew, Dr. Yevgeniy “Gene” Gincherman. He was born in Russia and came to America in 1988. He went to Middlebury College and then to medical school at the University of Pennsylvania. He married Daryl Colodzin and has two children, Maya 7 and Ella 5. Read about his trip to Haiti:
It’s early morning on Longboat Key, a 10-mile strip just above Sarasota where my wife and I are spending our fifth winter. Out on the beach the light is hard, one’s senses are fresh and birds are feeding, It’s the best time to see the beauty of Gulf Coast birds.
I have been invited to and gone to, many bar and bat mitzvahs, weddings, baby namings, circumcisions, funerals and wakes all over the United States of America. I have traveled to Seattle, WA; Albany, NY; Miami, FL; Vail, CO; Philadelphia, PA; Baltimore, MD; Washington, DC; Atlanta, GA; Cleveland, OH; San Diego, CA; Los Angeles, CA, and Toronto, Canada. Pretty much, “If you invite me and my wife Lorraine, we will come.”
I approached the ticket seller at the Westbury Brush Hollow Stadium Movie Theater with my $20 bill in my hot little hand. I said, “Two senior citizens please” and laid my bill down. She said, “Twenty-three dollars please.” I was expecting $4 change but I now had to add three more dollars to my entrance fee.
I was astounded!
Each winter, New Yorkers and families across the country are directly confronted with one of the most crucial financial concerns regarding their teenage children – how to pay for their college education.
About 10 years ago, I wrote a column concerning “Where does the lost love go?” in a bitter divorce. The couple was enthralled with each other when they said, “I do.” They vowed love and kisses forever when they stood before the minister or rabbi.
The heartbreaking news of the catastrophic earthquake that hit the small island nation of Haiti on Jan. 12 has caught the attention of people the world over. The great melting pot that is New York has a large Haitian community and many of our neighbors are suffering in heart and soul along with their friends and relatives on the devastated island. Many people with no personal connection other than a concern for their fellow man are looking to aid the victims of this enormous natural disaster.
I have always enjoyed a sincere list of gripes.
I found such a group of petty irritations in an article in the Jewish Week, Jan. 15, 2010 edition. It was written by Mark Pearlman of Jinsider.com. Here is the list with a bit of “Over 60” commentary:
