On Nov. 10, the New York City Council voted to create the Department of Veterans’ Services. Sponsored by Councilman Eric Ulrich, the DVS will replace the current Office of Veterans’ Affairs and expand upon its role. The bill will further provide the Department with the responsibility to cooperate with federal, state, and local agencies and to inform and assist members of the armed forces, veterans and their families.
On Veterans Day 2015, NYC Council Speaker Melissa-Mark Viverito and Councilman Ulrich will join The Wave's Managing Editor Mark Healey on the newspaper's podcast "Riding The Wave" to discuss the new department.
The Wave provides comprehensive coverage of the Rockaway penisula and has been Rockaway's newspaper since 1893.
The lessons learned after Superstorm Sandy should never be forgotten. Being prepared in the event a major hurricane like Joaquin hits our area is far better than the alternative. The Wave's Managing Editor Mark Healey will speak with a weather expert from AccuWeather.com to try to get a clearer idea of the impact Hurricane Joaquin will have on Rockaway.
Trebor Healey is author of the novel Through It Came Bright Colors, a selection of the InsightOut Book Club and the winner of both the Violet Quill Award and the Publishing Triangle’s Ferro-Grumley Award for Fiction. His other books include the novel Faun, the short story collection A Perfect Scar, and a volume of poetry, Sweet Son of Pan.
A Horse Named Sorrow, and Faun, are his two latest releases.
A Horse Named Sorrow is simply, inexorably beautiful. It is sexy, cinematic, the prose itself an absolute joy to read, and often funny as holy hell. It is, at the same time, one of the saddest works I have ever read: piercing, poignant, and memorable.”—Maureen Seaton, author of Sex Talks to Girls: A Memoir
"This magical tale about a boy unexpectedly turning into a faun is funny, poignant and erotic. Faun offers a wise meditation on our relationship to the earth as well as each other—and to our sexuality, which is the 'greenest' part of us all." —Mark Thompson.
