I remember when I attended a tourism conference run by NYC & Company years ago- I got a big laugh when I referred to Manhattan as the outer borough, and I could see others thought I was exaggerating when I declared that our restaurants were amongst the best in all of NYC. But I was proved correct as our restaurants take on the world and win! On May 18th at Citified we attended Queens, A Taste of the World the largest celebration of culinary diversity, featuring over 40 restaurants and fine eateries from the borough which represented the vast variety of cuisine ranging from traditional Italian dishes to new-age Asian fare. The event was hosted by Seth Bornstein, the Director of Queens Economic Development Corporation, a notfor-profit organization providing vital services to business communities throughout the borough.

The Scouts joined various other community and civic groups in tackling individual parks in the neighborhood. The boys worked specifically in Sabba Park, located on Queens Boulevard between 48th and 50th Streets, which is named after Joe Sabba, a longtime community activist and (photos continued on page 5) organizer here in Sunnyside/Woodside, coowner and editor of our own Woodside Herald and founder of the Sunnyside Drum Corps. The boys helped paint benches and structures in the park and assisted with general clean-up in preparation for the summer blooms and the exodus of people into the area for the annual Kiwanis Club of Sunnyside Flag Day Parade on June 12th. The boys were lead by Scoutmaster Eduardo Avila who along with the boys donned tshirts and jeans in lieu of their uniforms to tackle the task.

Mitchell Taylor of the East River Development Alliance on May 20. They had an opportunity to meet with some of the literacy students. The students had made piñatas in their honor. Letters To The Editor The following letters are the opinions of its author and not necessarily those of the Woodside Herald. Dear Editor, Devastating budget cuts could spell the end of our beloved Sunnyside branch library It has come to my attention that On Tuesday, May 25 th Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, Chair of the Cultural Affairs, Libraries & International Intergroup Relations Committee and Queens Library CEO Thomas W. Galante led a rally on the steps of City Hall in support of urging the restoration of proposed budget cuts to the Queens Library system. New York City s Executive Budget for FY 11 would reduce funding to the Queens Library system by $16.9 million, threatening our library service hours and more than 400 library staff jobs. Council Member Van Bramer was joined by more than 400 Queens Library supporters, trustees, friends of the Library and representatives of DC37 and Local The boisterous rally illustrated the great determination by Queens Residents to fight and voice their concerns for their libraries. City Council Members who joined Council Member Van Bramer in the rally included Julissa Let Us Remember and Pay Tribute to Our Fallen Soldiers Ferreras, Danny Dromm, Dan Halloran, Peter Koo, Peter Vallone Jr., Mark Weprin, Karen Koslowitz, James Sanders, Leroy Comrie, Vincent Gentile, and Jumaane Williams. Libraries are an essential part of our communities, said Council Member Van Bramer, in addressing the crowd. These educational havens provide vital resources during such pressing times - now more than ever New Yorkers need libraries. Queens Library s Literacy Zone Welcome Center offers adult literacy, classes in English as a Second Language and family literacy programs. At the Welcome Center, Queens Library assists with referrals in other areas of library customers lives: health care, housing problems, social services, tax services. Queens Library is the only public library to be a lead agency on this kind of project. Specially trained, dedicated outreach staff and counse- the Sunnyside library may be in for a knockout punch from the City Council s budget vote in mid-june. A severe cut of $16.9M, effective 7/1/10, is slated for a vote on top of the previous $11.5M cut. They always look to cut funding to the library system on the first roundsit s a New York tradition. Why, I never could figure. Books and children are our future. We must fight back- a large outcry from the community is needed. You can help lors are taking the time and have the training to sit down with patrons and find out what they really need. A big part of the agenda is eliminating the barriers that keep people from enriching their lives, whether that means improving English-language conversation or getting a hearing aid, or simply learning how to navigate the bureaucracy to access help. The Literacy Zone Welcome Center is funded by a grant from with a letter, or call to the Mayor or representative. Our representative has promised that the Sunnyside library will not close but something drastic will be coming if the latest cut goes thru. The Sunnyside branch library is the hub of this quaint but vibrant community supplying hundreds of books per day, serving 150 children and 75 Seniors on average, not counting the mothers and fathers who bring their children there. PHOTO CREDIT: William Alatriste Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz, Councilman Van Bramer, Councilman Dan Halloran and Councilman Peter Koo. the New York State Education Department, to help improve the economic futures for the resi- Where would the children go if the Sunnyside library closed? I can t imagine. The seniors would be lost without the services of the librarythe DVDs, the informative and entertaining programs. It s just a great place to be. There are 14 computers for use that are booked every day. Think of your favorite program at the library. Was it summer reading, financial market programs, or the great picture book time for the kids? What would happen to the spirit of dents of LIC/Astoria by helping them to improve their educations and job skills. this neighborhood without them? The library just went thru a million dollar plus renovation giving it a welcomed new look. What a financial loss this would be. The loss of personnel would be dreadful, as the highly educated staff would be forced to change careers to survive. They would never consider this career again. These people we depend on for advice would not be part of our lives again.

5 PAGE 5 PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION PRESERVATION ACT INTRODUCED IN CONGRESS Would Provide $ Million to NY/NJ /CT Transit & Would Reverse MTA Service Cuts and Layoffs A bill introduced in Congress by New York s two Senators as well as five others would reverse transit service cuts and layoffs ordered by the MTA by making available nearly $350 million in new federal funding, Local 100 President John Samuelsen announced today. It would also help the MTA hold the line on future fare increases. New York s mass transit system has been devastated by a consistent lack of funding by the City, State, and the Federal government, Samuelsen said. The Public Transportation Preservation Act would correct that, and reverse the service cuts and layoffs that are taking such a huge toll on transit systems around the country. I urge every New Yorker (continued from front page) to congratulate our Senators Schumer and Gillibrand on their important stand. Keep America Moving ( a national coalition of members of transit unions, environmentalists, and faith-based groups, has lobbied hard to see the Act introduced in Congress, sponsoring a major rally in Washington on April 27 th that brought 3,000 transit workers to Washington, DC. That rally featured the Rev. Jesse Jackson, who proclaimed that Òmass transit jobs are green jobs. Dan Miner, of the Sierra Club, told another Keep America Moving rally in New York City that environmentalists and transit workers must make common cause to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and Spring Cleaning takes over Sunnyside Photos by Eduardo Avila Troop 390 members Arturo R. and Danny R. paint like the pros for a good cause. dependence on foreign oil by taking cars off the road. In a press release, Sen. Schumer said that Mass transit is the very lifeblood of the New York and our ability to rebuild the economy and get people back to work is linked to a fully funded and affordable system. Sen.Gillibrand said: This emergency funding is badly needed to maintain strong and affordable transit systems that get workers to work, students to school, and keep our economy moving. The MTA s service cuts have begun to be phased in over the last several weeks and additional cuts are expected to continue into June. This is a last and best chance to reverse these service cuts, Samuelsen said. With the leadership of the New York delegation and aggressive support and action from members of Keep America Moving around the country, weõll get it done not only for New York, but for every other major urban mass transit system. TOWN HALL MEETING ON THE PROPOSED SUNNYSIDE/WOODSIDE REZONING On Wednesday, May 26 th Council Member Van Bramer hosted a town hall, bringing City Planning Officials and Community Board 2 together with Residents to discuss the proposed rezoning plan in Sunnyside and Woodside, Queens. The town hall style meeting provided a much needed opportunity for community members to express their questions and concerns about rezoning. The proposed plan, which has had some residents confused as to what exactly it entails, was broken down in a detailed PowerPoint presentation by City Planning, complete with pictures of the structural differences allowed by current zoning and the proposed rezoning. In a continuing effort to bring city agencies and residents together, Council Member Van Bramer facilitated and encouraged an open line of communication between the community and the agency on the rezoning. Over 100 residents attended the meeting and listened to the proposed plan and many residents spoke, sharing their ideas and concerns. I want the members of our community to have a say in what happens in their neighborhood, which is why I have hosted regular town hall meetings and will continue to do so, said Council Member Van Bramer. Government should be accessible, accountable and responsive these meetings are apart of our continuous efforts to make this possible. Angel O., Bladimir R., and Steven P. pause to look for any missed spots on their bench.

SOURCES OF INFORMATION AND ASSISTANCE The state encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure. In addition to seeking assistance from an attorney or legal aid office, there are government agencies and non-profit organizations that you may contact for information about possible options, including trying to work with your lender during this process. To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by the New York State Banking Department at BANK-NYS ( ) or visit the department s website at FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS Be careful of people who approach you with offers to save your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner s distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services NOTICE NOTICE YOU ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING YOUR HOME If you do not respond to this summons and complaint by serving a copy of the answer on the attorney for the mortgage company who filed this foreclosure proceeding against you and filing the answer with the court, a default judgment may be entered and you can lose your home. Speak to an attorney or go to the court where your case is pending for further information on how to answer the summons and protect your property. Sending a payment to your mortgage company will not stop this foreclosure action. YOU MUST RESPOND BY SERVING A COPY OF THE ANSWER ON THE ATTORNEY FOR THE PLAINTIFF (MORTGAGE COMPANY) AND FILING THE ANSWER WITH THE COURT. DATED: May 19, 2010 Steven J.
