Anton Community Newspapers is pleased to announce that the Dispatch is returning to its role as Floral Park’s premier weekly. You might have noticed that the weekly Floral Park Dispatch took a brief hiatus, although we continued to publish quarterly throughout the year.
Starting this week, you can look forward to coverage of the things that matter most, including John Lewis Childs, Floral Park-Bellerose, Floral Park Memorial High schools, village government, Our Lady of Victory and myriad churches within the village, local businesses and civic associations, Centennial Gardens, the Recreation Center and most of all, its residents.
Helping to tell the stories of your lives will be me, Christy Hinko, a five-year editor and reporter at Anton Newspapers. You have likely seen me over the years, a patron at many of the businesses like Raindew and Marina’s Deli along Covert, Dee Dee’s Luncheonette on Tulip, and Migliore’s Pizzeria and Long Island Shotokan Karate Dojo on Jericho Turnpike.

Lights. Camera. Action. These are the words you may hear if you are in Floral Park’s village hall.
For almost two decades Floral Park has been home to Four Village Studio (4VS), a local community television station serving the four-village area.
The community station airs a variety of programs hosted by residents, a community billboard and its own weather station. However, according to Operations Manager James Green, this is not the only goal of the studio.

Senator Jack Martins mentioned education, business and drug use among other topics in a recent interview with the Floral Park Dispatch. He’s currently seeking re-election in November, being challenged by Democrat Adam Haber.
Pointing to what he called “key legislation,” particularly the tax cap legislation passed in 2011 and prescription drug bill he helped foster to enactment, Martins feels New York State is on track to continue fiscal responsibility.
