Could learning to drive and parallel park in Queens be good practice for docking a Space Shuttle at the International Space Station? Maybe, but it really takes a lot of education and The Right Stuff — both of which Ozone Park native Charles Camarda has in spades.
Camarda was a crew member aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery on the historic Return to Space Flight of July 26 to Aug. 9, 2005, the first shuttle mission since the tragic loss of the Columbia and its crew on Feb. 1, 2003. The flight was designed not only as a rendezvous with the ISS but as a test for new protocols meant to avoid any repeat of the Columbia disaster, which was caused by a piece of insulation that broke off during launch, damaging part of the shuttle’s hull and causing it to burn up on re-entry.

At first glance, the members of The Phoenix Within look like a typical rock group. Dark-wash jeans, Chuck Taylors and T-shirts have almost become a uniform for the alternative rock scene, but speaking with Omar Feliciano, the band’s lead singer and writer, it is clear that the group is anything but typical.
By day, Feliciano and his bandmates work day jobs, attend graduate and law school and run a family business — the lead singer just graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology and is a lab and research assistant at York College— but by night, they trade in the pens and paper for guitar straps and song lyrics.

Marie Adam-Ovide, the district manager of Community Board 8, has thrown her hat into the 31st District City Council race to replace James Sanders Jr. (D-Laurelton), who was elected to the senate. A special election to fill his seat will be held in March.
“I take great pride in helping people,” Adam-Ovide said. “It is very rewarding to be able to make a difference in people’s lives. I am putting my knowledge and skills to work at CB 8, but I felt I could do so much more to help the community where I live. I have the right skill set to help the community.”
