Editorial: Christmas Time At Covert Avenue

The hallways were strewn with garland. The tree was set up near the principal’s office and holiday cheer aplenty at Covert Avenue School during my time there. I remember being a solider in The Nutcracker and I recall all the pleasantries afoot during the holiday season in the building. From time to time, I recall those memories and, in a positive way, dwell on what was. An era I will cherish forever, Covert Avenue is a Christmas memory worth keeping.

Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray and the town board recently presented 12 awards to outstanding residents at the 18th annual “Make a Difference” Awards Ceremony. The ceremony highlighted local heroes, including those who make a difference in the lives of others on an everyday basis, such as Kathryn Tuffy of Bellerose Village.

For Tuffy, helping children who are at-risk or in-need is not only her career; she has made it her life’s quest. “Kate”, as her friends and family call her, spends her days working with children and their families as a behavior analyst. When she is off the clock, Tuffy takes her passion for helping children above and beyond the call of duty.

Floral Park Fire Chief Lou D’Amore was officially relieved from service at the Floral Park Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday night. After four years of service as Village Fire Chief, D’Amore gave up his title to incoming chief Dan Bennett, who moves up from the assistant chief position. D’Amore will continue to serve as a member of the department.
