A Gem of a Boutique in Huntington

Huntington has a well-kept secret in a gem of a shop. Bella Boutique, located in the Southdown Shopping Center at 221 Wall Street, opened its doors this past September and offers unique women's accessories, jewelry, tabletop accessories, and carries specialty baby and bridal lines. Convenient parking, a breath-taking display of unique merchandise and the graciousness of the warm and welcoming staff make this a pleasant experience for everyone.

Local resident and owner Kathleen Murphy dedicated the store to her mother, who she says represented the true meaning of bella -- "a beautiful and talented woman who shared her gifts and love with everyone she met."

Bella shares space with Nail Nook Day Spa. Murphy believes the dual concept brings a shopping opportunity to busy women who want luxury, convenience and value. The boutique recreates the relaxing atmosphere of the day spa, where customers can browse until their hearts' content and always find an affordable little treasure to take home.

Murphy's innate talent and eye for beauty is evident throughout the store. The merchandise is truly unique, special and beautiful. Evening bags topped with flowers, one-of-kind sparkling necklaces and dazzling earrings, handcrafted stationery and broach-adorned hats are just some of the many items that grace the interesting space at Bella.

"I like to support my community and for that reason, I buy jewelry, stationery and other items from local craftspeople," says Murphy.

Since opening, Bella Boutique has also donated a percentage of sales to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the tsunami relief effort in Asia. For more information on Bella Boutique, contact Kathleen Murphy at (631) 424-4388.

Dr. Isaac Cates: Director of the C.W. Post Poetry Center

GREENLIGHT LONG ISLAND INTERVIEW
by Derek Grosso

DR. ISAAC CATESWhere were you born and where do you currently reside?
I was born in Wurzburg, Germany, while my father was stationed there, but I grew up in a small town south of Austin, Texas. Currently I split my time between New Haven, Connecticut, and New Hyde Park, New York.

Walk us through a day in your life.
Of course my typical day varies from semester to semester, and within any given week class days are quite different from days off campus. But this semester I rise early to drive from New Hyde Park to C. W. Post: I like to be on campus an hour before I teach, and my first class this semester meets at 9:30 in the morning. That class is a seminar on Modern Poetry, so we might be discussing a few poems by Robert Frost or by Marianne Moore. After a break, I then have back-to-back classes in freshman composition, which I'm focusing on contemporary poetry. In those classes, we might be talking about Robert Pinsky or about what makes a good first sentence in an essay. Classes end at about 3:30, and if I don't have any meetings or other business on campus, I return to New Hyde Park and spend some time reading e-mail or my students' work before dinner. Most Wednesdays I go home to New Haven after dinner on Long Island. If there's a poetry reading, of course, I stay on campus to host the visiting poet or poets. Those are unusual days in terms of my routine, but they're definitely days I look forward to.

What is your favorite restaurant?
I haven't had a chance to explore the restaurants of Long Island as well as I'd like to, though I've found a place called Indian City in New Hyde Park where I like to eat on Monday nights (when the restaurant is, it seems, always mysteriously empty despite their delicious food).

In New Haven, I have too many favorites to name them all, but among the tops are a Malaysian place called Bentara and a Japanese restaurant called Hama.

Favorite museum?
In the world? Again, there are too many to name them all, and different museums are good for different things. I really like the vibe of the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, and don't think I could get tired of the National Gallery in DC. I will probably always have a soft spot for the Peabody Museum of Natural History in New Haven -- and the Texas Museum of Natural History in Austin, for that matter, where I saw my first fossil bones -- because I still have a lot of my mind reserved for dinosaurs and cabinets of wonders.

Favorite poet and/or poem?
You can't really expect me to single one out, can you? Once I tried to make a list of a hundred English-language poets I thought I could read intensely for at least a week and learn from. At the end of that exercise, I found myself running out of room on the list.

Favorite website?
I spend a lot of time on The Personality Forge, which lets you program (and test) an artificial intelligence "chatbot." Some time this year, I intend to teach my "bot" to compose poems.

I also find myself checking James Kochalka's daily diary comic strip at www.americanelf.com on most days.

Favorite television show?
I don't have a television, actually. Which isn't exactly an answer to your question, I realize.

Favorite season/time of year?
Spring, I suppose -- the first days of the year when it's warm enough to wear short sleeves; the first days when the sun is warm and you see flying insects. I've lived in the Northeast for about a third of my life, and I'm more or less inured to the cold, but I still find the winter here awfully long, and my system seems to want warmth and daylight every year by the end of February.

Favorite place on Long Island?
I wish I knew Long Island well enough to give a really good answer to this question -- but I've really only been here a couple of days a week for about four months, and I've mostly been at work while I've been here. I'd be happy to receive recommendations.

Most dynamic duo, real or fictional?
That would have to be Krazy and Ignatz from the old Krazy Kat comic strip. I'm a huge fan of Krazy Kat. One day I'll write something about the genius of George Herriman: I really think that Krazy is one of the great literary achievements of the twentieth century. Of course, Krazy and Ignatz aren't really a duo. They're two vertices of the triangle that includes Offissa Pupp.

What is playing on your radio right now?
I've been listening to Jay Farrar a lot lately, and a smattering of Eliza Gilkyson, though what's playing as I write this is Roy Head and the Traits.

I would like a lifetime subscription to ______ magazine?
Harper's

Most recent book read or movie seen?
Earlier this week I re-read my friend Chris Cessac's excellent book Republic Sublime as I was preparing my classes -- to choose a few poems to present to my students. But by the time this goes on-line I will have re-read Robert Pinsky's The Sounds of Poetry so I can discuss it with my composition students, and I may have re-read Ciaran Carson's The Twelfth of Never as well.

Historic figure you would most like to meet, living or dead?
It depends on the circumstances of the meeting. It would be nice to sit down for a few cups of tea with John Keats or with Shakespeare, though, that's for sure. For a briefer encounter I'd probably choose someone more mysterious. If I were going to be given time to develop a friendship, I'd probably choose differently. Or, for that matter, if I could speak Ionic Greek or Renaissance Italian. Or Aramaic.

What has been your greatest/proudest accomplishment thus far?
It's not exactly an accomplishment, since a lot of this had to do with chance, but I was in the awkward position a couple years ago of giving a conference paper on the comics of Dan Clowes (the author of Ghost World and David Boring) while sitting at the same table as Clowes himself, in front of a crowd of students who had come to listen to Clowes and Terry Zwigoff. (This was right after the Ghost World movie had been nominated for an Oscar.) I'm happy to say I managed to come through the experience without embarrassing myself, offending Dan Clowes, or boring the undergraduates.

What would you like people to know about you?
I'd like people to know that I am trying to bring excellent poets to C.W. Post, and that if many of those poets' names are unfamiliar it's because I am often hosting people who've written only one or two books so far. These are all poets worth taking a chance on, and coming out to hear.

I really believe that for poetry to continue in the new century, readers outside of academia will have to pick up first books by young poets and find pleasure there. Sites like Amazon and versedaily.org make it possible for us to find and buy new books by poets we like, and much more easily than we could have fifteen years ago, but that hasn't translated into any larger market for a brilliant new poetry yet.

I'm trying hard to make the Poetry Center a place where people -- and not just students at Post -- can find out about new poetry, sometimes challenging poetry, but poetry they can enjoy.

Most important life lesson?
Could I be glib and say something like "Character does not consist of a series of preferences and favorites?"

No, I'd rather not be glib. And actually I remember a time when I didn't realize that: I assumed that when I'd learned what a person liked, I had learned who he or she was. It's the sort of idea about psychology that makes you think you could never really get along with someone who preferred the Monkees to the Beatles; eventually, always, you meet someone who proves that kind of thinking wrong.

I have a few other things that I try to pass along to my students, things that I realized a little late in my undergraduate education, and which would have benefited me if I'd learned them much sooner. The first is that college (or any education) is meant to change you -- and not merely to add to the contents of your mind, but to change the way your mind works. In order to accomplish this alteration, education has to be challenging sometimes. College will therefore do more for you if you choose hard classes sometimes. This goes well with the idea that something which requires effort -- like, for example, reading difficult poetry by someone like Gerard Manley Hopkins or Hart Crane -- can, with practice, be pleasurable. We all know this is true with physical activities that start off painful or awkward and become fun as we get strength and practice; the same thing is true of mental skills like writing or reasoning.

What makes Long Island special?
It's where I meet my students every week.

SBU Med. Students Celebrate Heart Month at LI Children's Museum

Students from the School of Medicine at Stony Brook University are leading discussions on heart care, heart anatomy, and heart surgery as part of the Heart Month celebration at the Long Island Children's Museum in Garden City. Each Saturday during February, the medical students are doing presentations for children to celebrate Heart Month. The children will discover the workings of the heart, how to stay heart-healthy, and participate in a re-enactment of the 1893 surgery of Dr. Daniel Hale Williams (only one of four African Americans practicing in Chicago at the time) when he performed the first successful operation on a human heart.

The Schedule:
WORKSHOP - A Walk Through the Heart
February 12, 19 & 26 from 12:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Jump into the left ventricle and slide through the aorta as you are escorted by medical students from Stony Brook University's School of Medicine. LICM will celebrate the work of Dr. Daniel Hale Williams and his groundbreaking status as the first person to successfully operate on the heart. Children will have a chance to discover the workings of the heart's anatomy as they become a red blood cell and walk through a room-size map of the human heart! Ages 3 and up. Free with museum admission.

WORKSHOP - 1893: Dr. Daniel Hale Williams Operates!
February 12, 19 & 26 from 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
Experience the thrill of operating on a heart in a dissection workshop led by medical students from Stony Brook University's School of Medicine. This workshop will re-enact the 1893 surgery when Dr. Daniel Hale Williams, one of only four African-American physicians practicing in Chicago, performed the first successful operation on the human heart. Ages 8 and up. $2 fee with museum admission. Advance registration required.

WORKSHOP - What's Inside All Hearts?
February 12, 19 & 26 from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m.
While each of us looks unique on the outside, inside, our hearts look remarkably the same. What is your heart made of? How do we keep this important organ healthy? Take a closer look at what's inside our hearts using a real microscope and slides of heart tissue. Medical students from Stony Brook University Hospital will work alongside our "junior physicians" as we discover and explore the heart's inner workings. Ages 6 and up. Free with museum admission.

For more information on these programs, call (516) 224-5845. Also visit the LI Children's Museum and Stony Brook University online.

Four95: The "Big Kids" on the L.I.E.

GREENLIGHT LONG ISLAND INTERVIEW
by Derek Grosso

FOUR95Four95 is [from left] J. DeMeo (Drums and Percussion), Jim Brosnan (Guitars and Vocals), Dave Christopher (Lead Vocals), Mark Vellante (Bass Guitar and Vocals) and [missing from photo] Mike Elefante (Rhythm Guitar and Vocals). Originally called Tenth Avenue, Four95 re-formed in the spring of 1998 as a drummerless foursome. Jim and Dave are the only founding members left. J. came on board as the first and only drummer for Four95 in the summer of 1998 and it all took off from there. The band has seen numerous setbacks from personnel changes, physical injuries, and just some bad luck over the last six-plus years. They reached their peak in 2001 playing 27 shows, including the Long Island Music Festival, the Hamptons Festival, and The LI Fall Festival. The following year, they played their only out-of-state show to date, traveling to the EAT’M (Emerging Artists & Technology in Music) convention in Las Vegas, Nevada and played as a threesome (because their bass player quit three weeks before). The past two years the guys have played sparsely due to work schedule restrictions. This has recently changed and they look forward to an ambitious 2005.

Where were you all born and where do you currently reside?
DAVE – Born in Glen Cove, resides in Wantagh
J. – Born and currently resides in Huntington
JIM – Born in Smithtown, resides in North Babylon
MARK – Born in Waltham, MA and resides in Bethpage
MIKE – Born in Plainview, resides in Farmingdale

Tell us a little about your new CD and the type of music you guys play.
J. - We play original Rock/Pop. We have a wide variety of influences, which steers our music into a wide variety of styles. We range from heavy hitting to funky, to poppy ballad. The new CD tries to capture that range.

JIM - The new CD is our first release in four years, after a double release in 2001 of a studio EP and a live album. It's definitely an extension of what we've done in the past. Our previous efforts have been primarily of a pop-rock nature, but in the past four years, our sound has gradually hardened and developed an edge. This album is mostly newer material, written in the past two or three years, but with a couple of songs pulled from the archives, dusted off, and given a new coat of paint. The sound that we have is still a little less 'alternative' than what you might hear on a regular basis; we tend to lean more toward classic rock than cutting-edge alternative sounds. More of a blues feel than an in-your-face metal sound or a moody alt-pop sound. We write rock music. Not "interesting tales about teenage angst" or "hard, shredding licks." Rock music, like what we grew up on.

DAVE - Having spent just about seven years together is unusual for an original unsigned band, especially on Long Island. The advantage is that you get to know each other musically in a way that many other bands never have the opportunity to do. We have been able to evolve into musicians that not only have the ability to write great songs, but also to collaborate. The result is our upcoming CD. It is a product of our time together as bandmates, but also brings to light our individual influences spanning over 35 years of rock and roll. The album is, in my mind, a musical documentation of who we are today and where we've come from.

Let us in on a funny/interesting story you have about one of your gigs.
Which one? How about the time we went to play at SUNY Stony Brook and found a topless girl on stage? Or when we played in Rockville Centre and we were shut down by Nassau County Police Department? Playing Vegas, playing NYC a month after 9/11, or the four-show three-day weekend tour of Long Island? We don’t know where to start...

What's the best thing about being in a band?
JIM - The music.
J. - Being on stage and riding the wave - just the feeling of being in sync musically with everyone else and producing something enjoyable for our audience.
DAVE – Knowing that you are able to connect with so many people whether you know them or not. There is a great feeling when someone says to you that one of your songs really meant something to them.

What's the worst thing about being in a band?
JIM - Lugging gear.
J. – Trying to get everyone to agree.
DAVE – Unreliable/untrustworthy club owners.

Who were your Superbowl picks this year?
J./MARK - The Patriots
JIM - The Eagles in an upset

Most dynamic duo, real or fictional?
J. - Eddie and Alex
JIM - Ace and Gary
DAVE – Gene and Paul

The macarena or electric slide?
J. – Neither
JIM – The Funky Chicken
DAVE – Horizontal Mambo

You're in a time machine that can take you to one place. Where do you go?
JIM - Dallas, Texas, November 22, 1963.
DAVE – The Sands Hotel in Las Vegas, September 28th 1962. (Frank, Dean, Sammy, Peter and Joey... The Rat Pack Live!!!)
J. – LA 1974-78 when Van Halen was on the club circuit.

What is your favorite restaurant?
JIM - Vincent's
J. – Roasted Pepper
DAVE – Peter Luger

Favorite website?
www.four95.com

Favorite word?
Asshat

Favorite relaxation?
J. - Sleep
JIM - Playing Guitar
MARK- Watching Movies
DAVE - Playing

Favorite local sports team?
J. - New York Islanders
JIM - New York Mets
DAVE - New York Yankees
MARK - New England Patriots / Boston Red Sox

Favorite place on Long Island?
JIM - Montauk Point
DAVE – Anywhere on the North Fork east of Riverhead
J. – Fire Island

Most recent book read or movie seen?
JIM - "The Teeth Of The Tiger" by Tom Clancy
MARK - "Angels & Demons" by Dan Brown
DAVE – "Night Fall" by Nelson DeMille

We would like a lifetime subscription to ______ magazine?
Playboy

Historic figure you would most like to meet, living or dead?
JIM – John F. Kennedy
DAVE - Sinatra

Who are some of your musical influences?
JIM - Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray, Richie Sambora
J. - Van Halen, Huey Lewis and the News, Extreme
DAVE – Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Billy Joel

Who would you like to see run for President?
JIM - Mat Stegner
DAVE – George Carlin

You can play a gig anywhere in the country. Where is it and give us the details?
Madison Square Garden - NY

What's the wildest place you've played on Long Island?
J. - Summer Beach Club was pretty cool. Wildest show was probably Molly Blooms (LIMF Semi-Finals).
JIM - The Funky Munky
DAVE – Wee Scotty's in West Babylon.

Memory of growing up?
JIM - Driving to Hampton Bays in the middle of the summer.
DAVE – First paying gig. I was 14. I discovered that the lead singer gets the girls. I've been a lead singer ever since!

Favorite vacation spot?
JIM - Italy
J. - Hawaii
DAVE - Las Vegas, NV and St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.
MARK – Cape Cod, MA

Favorite local secret?
The Ocean Parkway at rush hour

What has been the band's greatest/proudest accomplishment thus far?
Our Longevity. Almost 7 years is a pretty long time for any band and it has been a lot of work to keep it together.

What don't you want our readers to know about you?
We're all closet rap fans. Word.

What makes Long Island special?
Probably being so close to the greatest city in the world yet really so far away... and beer that's SHTANKIN' cold!!

Four95's self-titled CD is available for sale. For more on the band, visit www.four95.com.

Four Long Island CEOs Honored by C.W. Post

In his ongoing study - The History of Entrepreneurship on Long Island — Professor James L. Freeley of the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University wants to know what drives prominent Long Island entrepreneurs to success. Also of interest to Freeley are the obstacles and challenges CEOs face while rising to the top, and the advice they would have for budding entrepreneurs setting forth in today's competitive marketplace. At an "Entrepreneur Thank You Breakfast" on January 27, the C.W. Post Campus community honored four local executives who recently shared their insights with Professor Freeley in videotaped interviews.

The four honorees were Bruce R. Bent, Chairman and CEO of The Reserve Funds in New York City; Daniel Berlin, Chairman and CEO of Arkwin Industries Inc. in Westbury; Bert E. Brodsky, Chairman of the Board, Sandata Technologies, Inc. in Port Washington, and Mark Finkelstein, former Chairman and CEO of Ametek in Garden City and now its Executive Consultant for Mergers and Acquisitions.

The History of Entrepreneurship on Long Island is the third part of an on-going project conducted by Dr. Freeley, an expert on entrepreneurship in the AACSB accredited College of Management at C.W. Post. Dr. Freeley is creating the video archive of CEOs for use in libraries and for classroom instruction.

Groundhog Day on Long Island

It's a well-known tradition every year on February 2nd, that we have either six more weeks of winter or an early spring to look forward. The reason? Groundhog Day. Since a groundhog hibernates during the winter, coming out of the ground is supposed to indicate that spring is upon us. Centuries ago, Europeans watched for the emergence of other hibernating animals to signal winter's end. Nowadays, we have our share of rodent meteorologists in American cities.

The most popular prognosticator by far is Punxsutawney Phil, who is a local celebrity in his namesake Pennsylvania town and has starred opposite Bill Murray in the movie "Groundhog Day." The list of groundhogs also includes Connecticut Chuckles, General Beauregard Lee of Georgia, Chuck Wood of California, Pierre C. Shadeaux of Louisiana and an albino groundhog named Wiarton Willie who forecasts in Canada. New York City's seer is known as Pothole Pete while Staten Island Chuck calls the shots in that "burrow."

On Long Island, we actually have two predictors. Malverne Mel and Holtsville Hal. Will they see their shadows this Groundhog Day? A shadow means six more weeks of winter; while no shadow predicts an early spring. See for yourself at the gazebo in Reese Park in Malverne, near the junction of Hempstead Avenue and Church Street for Mel or at the Holtsville Ecology Site at 249 Buckley Road in Holtsville for Hal.
