The Bronx County Kennel Club show, forced outdoors last Saturday when the Kingsbridge Armory became unavailable on short notice because of the National Guard occupancy, will be reviewed by members at a meeting next Wednesday. The future of the 48-year-old fixture also will be discussed.
Capt. Arthur J. Haggerty, the president, said yesterday that some members had suggested abandoning the armory altogher because of the uncertainties surrounding its use at any given time. Haggerty, who operates a chain of dog training schools, favors a compromise –– one primary location, the armory, and an alternate location.
"Scheduling a show for any military installation always presents a problem," he said. "We had to cancel in 1966 when the armory was required for movement of troops and equipment. Another year there was a near miss. In 1966 the club investigated several places in the Bronx and found nothing suitable. Lat Friday, when we learned we could not use the armory the following day, I found one, but I am not at liberty to reveal the name."
The event Saturday was held on the parking lot of Lehman College and almost everything including the weather turned out fine.
"At first I thought the parking lot would be too small for the record entry (2,014 dogs), Haggerty said "But Sheldon Selikoff, the show chairman, said it was adequate and he proved 100 percent right. He deserves most of the credit for getting the show organized on the new location
Haggerty said that with exhibitors coming from distant places, there was no choice but to hold the event, despite all obstacles, which included directing exhibitors to the new site from the armary and supplying water for dogs, catering services and sanitation facilities. He admitted a large amount of "the luck of the Irish" in the operation, including benign weather. Had the snowstorm of Easter Sunday arrived a day sooner the event might have become a shambles.
And what breed of won best in the show? The Irish settler, as represented by Chi. Mahogany Socair Buacaill, C.D., owned by Mrs. Helen Olivo and Alan Levine of Brooklyn.

Sheldon Selikoff, 44 years old, a Boy Scout leader, was indicted today by Westchester County grand jury on eight counts of morals violations stemming from operation of what the police called a "clearing house" for pornography.
Mr. Seikoff, of Yonkers, was arrested on Aug. 10 after an 18-year-old girl, hired as his secretary, told the police that Mr. Selikoff showed her an obscene film and made advances towards her during her first day on the job.
District Attorney Carl Vergari said that in tha police raid on the office 23 reels of pornographic film and other items were found.
Mr. Selikoff, free on $1,000 bail, is superintendent of scouting at Public School 13 in Yonkers.
People State New York v. Sheldon Selikoff
SHELDON SELIKOFF, APPELLANT
In Santobello, the defendant unsuccessfully attempted to withdraw his guilty plea and there was no public policy against specific enforcement of the prosecutor's promise. However, there cannot be an absolute sentence promise by the court at the time of acceptance of a guilty plea, as that would violate a statutory mandate and public policy. Prior to the imposition of sentence the court must order a presentence investigation and may not pronounce sentence prior to receiving a written report of such investigation (CPL 390.20, subd. 1). The presentence investigation "consists of the gathering of information with respect to the circumstances attending the commission of the offense, the defendant's history of delinquency or criminality, and the defendant's social history, employment history, family situation, economic status, education, and personal habits" (CPL 390.30, subd. 1). While many, if not most, sentence arrangements by the court at the time of a guilty plea are expressly made conditional upon the findings of the presentence report, it is clear that any such arrangement, no matter how phrased, must be considered contingent until such time as it is confirmed by the court, subsequent to its review of the presentence report, by the formal imposition of sentence. To hold otherwise would frustrate the whole scheme of the statute in providing for the acceptance of lesser pleas and for the imposition of sentences thereon with regard to their deterrent influence, the rehabilitation of the defendant and the protection of the public (Penal Law, ? 1.05, subd. 5). If the court has in fact made a specific sentence promise to a defendant at the time of a guilty plea which it cannot thereafter fulfill, it is perfectly fair and proper for the court to offer the defendant the opportunity to withdraw his plea, as was done at bar, and restore him to his prior position (People v. Di Giacomo, 40 A.D.2d 689; see American Bar Association Project on Minimum Standards for Criminal Justice, vol. on Pleas of Guilty, ?? 1.8; 2.1 [a] [ii] ; ? 3.3). The Legislature has expressly vested discretion with the court to permit a defendant to withdraw his plea at any time prior to the imposition of sentence and to restore him to his prior position (CPL 220.60, subd. 4).
In the absence of any showing of specific prejudice to the defendant or change in position in reliance upon the guilty plea, and none has been demonstrated in this record, he is in no position to object to this procedure.
Accordingly, the judgment of conviction should be affirmed.
Elderly man dies after driving off Route 80 into tree
By Eman Varoqua and Justo Bautista
The Record - November 25, 2003
PARSIPPANY-TROY HILLS, NJ - Authorities are investigating what caused a car to veer off Route 80 and crash into a tree Monday, killing the driver.
Sheldon Selikoff, 76, of Miami was traveling west around 1 p.m., when his 2003 Dodge Neon ran off the road, state police said. The impact destroyed the car, they said.
It was not known whether a medical condition was a factor in the accident, and an autopsy will be performed, state police said.
The car was such a wreck, police said, that investigators could not determine whether Selikoff was wearing a seat belt.
Trooper Tim Nevill said there were no witnesses to the accident, and police were looking for a cause.
