HONORING Archbishop Molloy High School upon the
occasion of celebrating its 125th Anniversary to be
celebrated on June 14, 2018

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and
commend those institutions of commitment and high achievement whose
purpose and endeavors prove a dedication to the pursuit of excellence in
the education of the youth of this noble Empire State; and

WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its
long-standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor
Archbishop Molloy High School upon the occasion of celebrating its 125th
Anniversary to be celebrated on June 14, 2018; and

WHEREAS, Archbishop Molloy High School of Briarwood, Queens, is
celebrating its 125th Anniversary this year, after initially opening its
doors in Manhattan as St. Ann's Academy at East 76th Street and
Lexington Avenue; and

WHEREAS, Over more than 50 years, St. Ann's Academy, operated under
the auspices of the Marist Brothers, housed an all-boys school; the
school grew to serve students in elementary through high school and
adopted the motto and philosophy of "Not for School, But for Life" as
its guiding educational principle; and

WHEREAS, As the campus infrastructure began to deteriorate in the
1950s, Archbishop Thomas E. Molloy of the Brooklyn/Queens Diocese
secured a six-acre plot of land in Queens to build a new school for St.
Ann's students, which was subsequently named in his honor; and

WHEREAS, Archbishop Molloy High School, which opened its doors to
female pupils in 2000, is deeply committed to the educational, athletic,
social and spiritual development of its students, and is a highly
competitive academic institution, receiving more than 3,000 applications
each year for 400 freshman seats; and

WHEREAS, In commemorating 125 years of teaching and learning,
Archbishop Molloy High School continues its extraordinary commitment to
providing all students in its academic family with the greatest of
opportunities to succeed beyond its doors in college, in careers, and in
their ultimate adult lives of the future; and

WHEREAS, To this day, current students and alumni of Archbishop
Molloy High School are known as "Stanners," a name derived from early
students who were dubbed "St. Ann-ers" and attended the original Academy
before it moved to Queens in the 1950s; and

WHEREAS, Archbishop Molloy High School has been locally and
nationally identified as an excellent educational institution, with
recognition coming from the United States Department of Education, U.S.
News and World Report, and the Blackboard Awards; and

WHEREAS, Since opening its doors 125 years ago, Archbishop Molloy
High School, both as St. Ann's Academy and in its current form, has been
a huge part of the educational and spiritual soul of Queens and New York
City, and boasts any number of prominent graduates; now, therefore, be
it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Archbishop Molloy High School upon the occasion of celebrating its
125th Anniversary, and recognizing its many contributions to its
community, State and Nation; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Archbishop Molloy High School.

Senate Resolution No. 5662

BY: Senator BRESLIN

COMMEMORATING the 50th Anniversary of Rolf's Pork
Store

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize the
achievements of those individuals and businesses which substantially
contribute to the economic vitality of their communities and the entire
Empire State; and

WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its
long-standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to
commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Rolf's Pork Store; and

WHEREAS, This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Rolf's Pork Store,
a meat market on Lexington Avenue in Albany, New York, which is
currently owned and operated by Edgar and Glen Eggelhoefer; and

WHEREAS, Purchased by Edgar and Glen's father, Rolf Eggelhoefer, in
1968, the shop's distinguished history spans longer than just five
decades; two other families owned and operated the establishment on the
same block under different names for a combined 100 years, making it the
oldest existing meat market in upstate New York; and

WHEREAS, For many of its loyal customers, Rolf's Pork Store offers a
taste of home and a glimpse of a bygone era; a place where they can find
tangy German potato salad, wurst of every variety, and a type of ham
native to the Black Forest Region called Schwarzwalder Schinken; and

WHEREAS, Furthermore, the shelves are lined with spaetzle and German
chocolate and the magazines and newspapers are German; red, yellow and
black t-shirts and flags hang from the ceiling, and customers can talk
to the butcher face-to-face to discuss the cut of meat they desire; and

WHEREAS, Edgar and Glen Eggelhoefer learned everything they know
from watching and working alongside their father, who sold them the
store in 1987; and

WHEREAS, Trained as a professional meat-cutting meister in Germany,
Rolf Eggelhoefer and his wife, Waltraud, moved to the United States in
1958; the couple landed first in New York City, where he worked at
Forest Park Store in Queens for a decade, before moving to Albany and
purchasing the market which would become Rolf's Pork Store; and

WHEREAS, Upon arriving in the Capital Region, Lexington Avenue was a
busy thoroughfare lined with restaurants, bars, hair salons, a bakery
shop, groceries, and other businesses; the surrounding neighborhoods
were predominately German and Polish, and foot traffic dominated Rolf's
business; and

WHEREAS, Under the able leadership of Edgar and Glen Eggelhoefer,
Rolf's Pork Store makes between 2,000 and 3,000 hot dogs each day;
during the week leading up to Memorial Day, the business sells 700
pounds of hot dogs, 400 pounds of sausages and 800 hamburger patties;
and


WHEREAS, Additionally, Rolf's Pork Store makes more than 60 products
in-house, including hundreds of pounds of bacon and ham in different
stages of curing, as well as cold cuts; and

WHEREAS, It is with great pleasure that this Legislative Body
acknowledges this exceptional business and its contributions to the
local and State economies, fully confident that it will continue to
enjoy the sparkling successes it has experienced thus far; now,
therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Rolf's Pork Store; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Edgar and Glen Eggelhoefer, Rolf's Pork Store, Albany,
New York.

Senate Resolution No. 5658

BY: Senator ADDABBO

HONORING The Wave newspaper upon the occasion of
celebrating its 125th Anniversary

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to honor and
recognize those journalism and media outlets which, through their
coverage of local, state, and national issues have shared current and
historical events with their readers; and

WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its
long-standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor
The Wave newspaper upon the occasion of celebrating its 125th
Anniversary; and

WHEREAS, The Wave is justly known as "Rockaway's Newspaper since
1893," when printing shop owner James Keenan, in the wake of a terrible
fire that burned down the entire seaside section of the Rockaway
Peninsula, decided local residents needed their own paper devoted to
community news; and

WHEREAS, What started as one printed sheet of paper detailing news
about the Rockaway fire in September of 1892, officially became The Wave
newspaper on May 28, 1893, when Keenan published the first edition; and

WHEREAS, Over the years, The Wave moved to a variety of locations,
and was operated by a number of different publishers, including B.F.
Ashley, D.W. Murray, his son Herbert Murray, and Leon Locke, who
purchased the paper in 1975; and

WHEREAS, In 1987, Leon Locke was able to move The Wave to its
current location at 88-08 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, which was very close
to the quarters the newspaper occupied from 1905 to 1976; and

WHEREAS, Throughout its 125 years of publishing, The Wave has
chronicled the lives of the people who live on the Rockaway Peninsula,
bringing them local news, entertainment, editorial opinion, and an
extraordinary sense of community; and

WHEREAS, In 2001, Leon Locke, who had just celebrated 26 years of
publishing The Wave, suddenly passed away; he is still deeply missed in
the Rockaway community where he served on Community Board 14, as
festival chairman of the Rockaway Music and Arts Council, as a board
member of the Rockaway Chamber of Commerce, and as a founding member of
the Peninsula Volunteer Ambulance Corps; and

WHEREAS, Leon's wife, Susan Locke, took over as publisher of The
Wave after his death, ensuring that Rockaway's beloved and respected
newspaper of record would continue bringing necessary news to residents
of the Peninsula; and

WHEREAS, In 2012, The Wave offices suffered severe water and other
damage from Hurricane Sandy, which led the staff to temporarily move to
an unaffected upstairs office dubbed "The Wave Cave" to keep publishing
while building repairs were being made; and


WHEREAS, It is with great pleasure that this Legislative Body
acknowledges this exceptional media outlet and its valuable
contributions to the community, fully confident that it will continue to
enjoy the successes it has experienced thus far; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor The Wave newspaper upon the occasion of celebrating its 125th
Anniversary, and to recognize its admirable resiliency, and its many
positive contributions to Rockaway, the Borough of Queens, and the State
of New York; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Susan Locke, Publisher, The Wave.
