Sep 3 | Warwick Town Board Meeting re: Pine Island Cell Tower | 7:30PM
Jurisdictional dickering PIFD declares itself lead agency in tower proposal; town says, not so fast. By John Haughey. PINE ISLAND — The Pine Island Fire District Board of Commissioners on Aug. 21 declared itself lead agency in determining if town zoning laws apply to its controversial proposal to erect a 150-foot cell phone tower at its County Road 1 firehouse. Cell tower opponents say the 3-1 vote - Commissioner George Haas objecting, Chairman Ken Gurda abstaining - is akin to a fox declaring itself lead hen inspector.
But the Warwick Planning Board, which considers itself to be the lead arbiter in deciding when its zoning laws apply, views the PIFD's self-determination to be more akin to putting a cart before a horse. As far as town planners are concerned, the PIFD must still submit its analysis of the "Monroe Balancing Test" before it can proceed with any review of proposed cell phone tower. The "Monroe Balancing Test" stems from a 1988 ruling that established a nine-question “balancing of public interests” analysis as way to resolve inter-governmental land-use disputes. Previously, public entities - from the federal government to local fire districts, such as the PIFD - were exempt, by state law, from municipal zoning regulations.

In a Nov. 20, 2013, letter to the PIFD, town planners gave the district until Aug. 26 to submit its analysis of the nine questions in order for the planning board - not fire commissioners - to ascertain if the district is exempt from zoning regulations, which prohibit cell phone towers in that area of Pine Island.

Town Planning Board request
But what commissioners did in their Aug. 21 vote is, essentially, self-exempt the district, regardless what the town says about the analysis. In the same meeting, commissioners self-extended the Aug. 26 "shot clock" deadline to Oct. 26 and agreed to present its analysis in a Sept. 23 public hearing.

Not so fast, warned Planning Board Chairman Benjamin Astorino. "We requested (the PIFD) do (the analysis) 10 months ago and we would like to see that request honored," he said Wednesday. "They may feel differently, but we're going to follow through" in demanding the district submit the analysis as a precursor, not a courtesy.

The PIFD's self-determined lead agency status in the cell phone tower proposal will be the topic of a special Warwick Town Board meeting at Warwick Town Hall on Sept. 3 at 7:30 p.m. Read more & click on link at beginning of this story.

Sep 13 | JUANITA GUCCIONE: DEFIANT ACTS | 5-8PM
Presented with Weinstein Gallery; On view September 13-November 1, 2014
Opening Reception: Saturday, Lecture: Susan Aberth, "Women in Surrealism" Sunday, September 14, 2014 3:00pm; Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday 10:00am-3:00pm, nights and weekends by appointment In Seligmann's Studio.

Juanita Guccione (1904-1999) is one such artist whose work--and life--mirrored the radically creative and philosophical underpinnings of Surrealism. After a childhood in Massachusetts and Brooklyn, Guccione became a fashion model in New York City in the 1920s; rather than falling into the romantic role of 'muse,' she studied at the Art Students League before venturing to France, Italy and Greece, supporting herself through portrait commissions. From there she sailed to Egypt, eventually settling in 1931 in Bou Saada, an artists' colony in Algeria, amongst the Ouled Nail tribe. Traveling among Bedouin nomads in the Sahara, she produced a diverse oeuvre of portraits and landscapes that in1935 would be exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum, alongside works by Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko.

After the birth of her son in 1934, Guccione returned to New York, designing murals with David Alfaro-Siqueiros for the Works Progress Administration and studying for seven years with Hans Hofman. Guccione infused social realism, cubism, surrealism and abstraction with her own indefinable and audacious style, creating an independent mythology and challenging social conventions in her art and life. Women populate her canvases in wonderland environments, alongside animals, architecture, and fantastical landscapes, at times hinting to world events, other times mystic explorations. The writer and poet Anais Nin said of Juanita, "Few people can paint the world of our dreams with as much magic, precision and clarity." Guccione's work continued to evolve and elude the interpretations of critics worldwide-- ultimately to her peril, as her name and art fell into relative obscurity.

Sep 23 | Parents Run AMOC Special Olympics Team for training | 7PM
The Mental Health Association in Orange County, Inc. in collaboration with Parents Run AMOC (Autism Move A Thon in Orange County) announces that the Warwick Valley School District will host the Parents Run AMOC Special Olympics Team for training. The Warwick Valley School District in conjunction with Pupil Personnel Director, M. Chris Fox, Athletic Director, Greg Sirico, and parents have recognized the need for students with developmental disabilities to have a venue to pursue athletic interests and improve their physical development. The school district has offered the Parents Run AMOC’s Special Olympics team use of their facilities to be able to train on an on-going basis.
Parents Run AMOC works in partnership with the Mental Health Association in Orange County, Inc. and raises funds to offer financial assistance to local families living with autism spectrum disorders in Orange County. In addition, they strive to promote awareness and community integration for individuals and families affected by autism. Their Special Olympic team is just one way that they encourage individuals and families to become integrated into their communities.
The Special Needs community is invited to participate in this year’s Special Olympics. A team is in the process of being formed.
What is needed:
Athletes — Students from the ages of 8 and above living in Orange County who have a developmental disability. Eligibility will be extended to an athlete whose school district does not host a team or are transported out of district. Additionally, we hope to participate in Unified Events at the Special Olympics which means we are also encouraging students who do not have a developmental disability to train and participate with us in the Special Olympics.

Parents — Each special athlete must have a parent or guardian present at each practice, event, and competition to support your child.
Coaches — Anyone with a passion for working with special athletes and are willing to receive training to become a certified Special Olympics coach, would be a great asset to our team. Information will be provided at our first meeting regarding how to become a coach.

Volunteers — We can always use volunteers to help motivate the athletes, organize events, train with the athletes and just be a friend. An informational meeting will take place on Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. in the Dorothy C. Wilson Building (Warwick Valley Middle School) Community Room.

For further information or if you are interested in participating, email Jessica Duggins at jessespo27@gmail.com or Lisa Currao at lisacurrao@optonline.net.

Sep 23 | Warwick Historical Society, Dr. Richard Hull present “Warwick at War and Peace” | 7PM
Three-part Curator’s Choice series begins September 23 The Warwick Historical Society is pleased to present “Warwick at War and Peace,” a three-part Curator’s Choice series that begins on Sept. 23. The series, presented by Dr. Richard Hull, Professor of History at New York University and Town of Warwick Historian, will focus on how the local community mobilized to meet a crisis of national proportions.
“The first lecture will examine the impact of WWI on Warwick,” said Hull, who is also a member of the Board of the Warwick Historical Society. “We’ll discuss what actions were taken locally, how citizens participated, how the crisis transformed the way those citizens lived, and what the immediate and long-term impacts were.”
The second presentation in the series, which will take place on Oct. 21, will focus on the American Revolutionary War and how Warwick residents responded to it. The third event in the series, scheduled for Nov. 11, will be a panel discussion on peacemaking in the 1960s and 70s.
“The series is unique in that it offers a thought-provoking and imaginative way of examining our past at the grassroots level,” said Sharon Knol, executive director of the Warwick Historical Society.
“While most histories examine the big picture and offer sweeping conclusions, this Curator’s Choice series is microhistory, exploring how people were impacted at both the local community and deeply personal levels. In doing so, the audience may gain new insights into community dynamics as well as new perspectives on how we can mobilize to deal with issues that currently confront us,” said Hull.
Curator’s Choice events are free to members of the Warwick Historical Society, and are $20 for non- members. The first two events in this series are $10 for veterans; the final event in the series, which takes place on Nov. 11, is free for veterans. All three events begin at 7 p.m. at the A.W. Buckbee Center, located at 2 Colonial Avenue in the Village of Warwick.
Professor Hull was voted Warwick Citizen of the Year in 2013, named Orange County ‘Revered Citizen’ in 2005 and Untied Nations ‘Distinguished Citizen’ in 1964. He holds four Teaching Excellence Awards from New York University. He received his doctorate and two master’s degrees from Columbia University, and is the author of more than a dozen books, including several on aspects of Warwick’s history.
