Pasta Cucina of Stony Point Adds Curb Ramp For Customers With Disabilities

Published

on

Via Richard Fernandez

Tonight, we visited Pasta Cucina, located in Stony Point, NY. We immediately noticed a new curb ramp had been installed at the entrance to the restaurant. We inquired about it, and Mario, the owner, came over and explained that it troubled him to see patrons with mobility issues struggle to get up on the sidewalk to visit the various eateries located at this strip mall, so he took it upon himself to find a solution. As a person with mobility issues, I am genuinely grateful to Mario for being mindful of the struggles people with disabilities encounter. Disability is not the problem; accessibility is! Moreover, we enjoyed another excellent meal, and we were treated like family. Great job, Mario and the Pasta Cucina team.

Richard Fernandez was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (a progressive disease) 26 years ago, but M.S. has never stopped him from volunteering for his community, and he inspires almost everyone he meets.

Rich worked twenty-four years with the NYPD before he retired in 2013. He worked as a Sergeant assigned to the 33rd precinct for nineteen of those twenty-four years. While working at the 33rd precinct, Rich received a Sergeant Special Assignment designation. He was also the sole recipient of the 1998 “Theodore Roosevelt Association Police Award” bestowed on a uniformed member of the service, who like Theodore Roosevelt had overcome severe physical challenges to continue commendable service. During his years of service, Rich received numerous perfect attendance awards, stellar evaluations, and other recognition in spite of his health challenges. Throughout the years, M.S. has temporarily blinded Rich, given him permanent mobility issues and impaired his cognitive function; however; Rich has never used his MS as an excuse not to serve his community.

Rich currently serves as the Vice-president of the North Rockland Board of Education and is the leader of the National Multiple Sclerosis Support Group in New City.

Start Your Garden From Seeds This Spring With ” Down To Earth Living ” Pomona, NY

Published

Pomona, NY – Seed starting is a great way to start your garden early and ensure that you have a steady supply of healthy, robust plants throughout the growing season. Whether you are a seasoned gardener or just starting out, seed starting can be a rewarding and fun activity. Here’s what equipment you will need and some tips for success.

The timing of seed starting depends on the plants you want to grow. Generally, you should start seeds indoors a few weeks before planting them outdoors. This will give your plants enough time to grow and become strong before you transplant them outside.

What Equipment You Need
To start seeds indoors, you will need a few basic gardening tools. Here is a list:
 Containers: Start your seeds in peat pots or peat plugs which will eliminate the need to
transplant the seedlings from a container into the ground, reducing the possibility of
damaging them.
 Soil: Use high-quality seed-starting mix designed to provide the right balance of
nutrients and moisture for young plants.
 Seeds: Choose high-quality seeds and make sure to read the instructions on the seed
packets.
 Water: Water your seeds regularly, but don’t overwater.
 Light: Seedlings need plenty of light to grow strong and healthy. Be sure to place them
on a sunny windowsill. Consider starting with easy growing vegetables such as lettuce,
tomatoes, peas, peppers, and squash.

Tips for Success
Here are some tips for successful seed starting:
 Start with clean containers: Wash your containers well with soap and water and rinse
thoroughly.
 Plant at the right depth: Follow the instructions on the seed packet to determine the
proper depth for planting your seeds.
 Provide enough light: Seedlings need 12-16 hours of light per day. If you are using
grow lights, keep them about 2 inches above the plants.
 Keep the soil moist: Check the soil regularly and water as needed. Don’t let the soil dry
out completely, but also avoid overwatering.
