MTA Shouldn’t Blame County for Able Ride Cuts


The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has made a poor decision in cutting services provided by the Able-Ride Program while blaming such cuts on Nassau County.

 

Letter: The Spring of Life

Friday, 23 July 2010 00:00

It’s not easy for a young person in today’s world. If a teen is on a skateboard they are not doing drugs. They are happy. They are keeping in shape. If a young person is on a skateboard they are being young and alive.

 

Letter: The Inconvenient Truth - Response To Mayor Starkie

Friday, 16 July 2010 00:00

(This letter is in response to a letter printed in the June 11, 2010 issue of the Farmingdale Observer, entitled “Newsletter Sent to Residents is Wrong.”)

All of our elected officials answer directly to the taxpayer.  My passion for my community runs deep and that was just one of the reasons I ran for public office, only once thus far, for trustee of Farmingdale Village. Since questioning several of the practices of our present village administration, I have been attacked personally on many levels by the mayor and his friends. His rants and waving of papers at the village board meeting are merely his tactics of intimidation and showmanship. He even threatened to sue me. Yet, that will not stop me from asking questions and trying to get answers about how our taxpayer dollars are spent in our village.

 

Letter: ‘Come Back, Little Seamus’

Friday, 16 July 2010 00:00
It took all of three seconds to fall in love with him. That tiny v-shaped face and green eyes, his stumbling kitten tip toe walk, made us all know that he was the one for us. Since his litter siblings were named Angus and Cletus, we decided that Seamus McGee was the right name for him.
 

Letter: Attend a Fundraiser For Little Julia Perfetti

Friday, 09 July 2010 00:00
I want to share a story with you about a courageous little girl named Julia who lives in my hometown of Glen Cove. Julia was born with a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis. The disorder causes tumors to grow on nerves. NF will often lead to other conditions such as cardiovascular problems, chronic pain, blindness, deafness, bone defects, disfigurement and many other complications. Treatment options include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.
 

Letter: Property Taxes Are Too High In Farmingdale

Friday, 09 July 2010 00:00
(This letter was sent to State Senators Hannon and Fuschillo, State Assemblymen Conte, Sweeny and Saladino and to Newsday. It is printed here at the author’s request.)

The Concerned Citizens Association of Farmingdale civic board has been and continues to be very concerned over the burden of very high property taxes in our community and on Long Island.  Over the past year we have provided forums for discussion on many relative issues, including school taxes, NYS education mandates, illegal apartments/housing, housing affordability, foreclosures, local economic development and property taxes.

Enjoy the County’s Parks This Summer


As we head into the warm days of summer, you may be wondering what resources and activities are available to you and your family. While funds for the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation have been cut 25 percent in the past two years, I’m pleased to say that Nassau County’s parks are open for business!

Letter: Accusations Against Village Mayor Are Way Out of Line

Friday, 25 June 2010 00:00

I’ve been a patron of Starkie Brothers Garden Center for the last four years and have never met John Starkie. I know everyone by name (except the seasonal part-timers) and they all know my name. In fact, my mom calls the Garden Center my second home I’m there so much.

 

Letter: Thank You From Taylor Family For Memorial Benefit

Friday, 18 June 2010 00:00

The family of Robert F. “Bobby” Taylor would like to acknowledge and thank all prize donors and participants in the Robert F. Taylor Memorial Benefit on Sunday, June 13 at the Changing Times Pub in Farmingdale. Attendance was standing room only and donations received from raffles and drawings was far beyond our expectations. Thank you family, friends and relatives for making this a very successful event!
