Village of Bellerose Mayor Henry Schreiber endorses incumbent Trustee candidates, Margaret Hagan and Kenneth Moore, in the upcoming Bellerose Village election. Hagan has been instrumental in her role as trustee responsible for the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development making funds available for housing rehabilitation to village residents. As trustee, Moore is vital to the safety of the village in his emergency response roles with the Bellerose Village Fire Department and the county at large as part of the Nassau County First Battalion Emergency Operations.
Both Trustees Hagan and Moore have been outstanding trustees serving the Board and Village of Bellerose for more than 10 years collectively. The mayor also urges residents to show support through voting on Village Election Day, Tuesday, March 18, from noon to 9 p.m. at Bellerose Village Hall, 50 Superior Road.

While parking around Long Island Rail Road train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town.
“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”

Hundreds of civic, business, community and elected officials gathered in Baldwin at the Coral House to support the annual kick-off of the Long Island Toys for Tots Drive on Monday, Oct. 27. The toy drive is the nation’s largest gift program for children during the holidays. Marine Corps Major Chuck Kilbride gave special recognition to the many people who make Toys For Tots possible locally, including U.S. Postal Service workers, marines, legislators, and the police and fire departments, who work tirelessly to collect toys each year.
The hundreds of guests were treated to special performances by the F.R.E.E. Players Jazz Ensemble and the American Bombshells trio.
