The Mystery of Shakespeare’s Unique Genius

The body of work is so luminous, so full of rapturous delight, so profound in taking the full measure of the human personality from its frivolous pretensions to its deeper resonances that one is tempted, indeed compelled, to ask if the hand of a single mortal could have sculpted such an enduring monument.

Senator Johnson: Legislative Package to Help New York’s Veterans And Soldiers Passes Senate

The State Senate Majority last week passed legislation that will expand, or launch new benefits programs for the brave New Yorkers who have fought for our nation’s freedom, Senator Craig M. Johnson announced.

 This legislative package includes: The ability to audit courses, without charge, at SUNY and CUNY for veterans seeking to advance their academic careers. Access to property tax exemptions that would help the many service members who have found it difficult to afford to remain in their community as a result of service. Ending barriers that currently make it difficult for active duty military personnel to marry as a result of deployment. These deployments can often come without notice for adequate planning purposes.

The Necessity of Nuclear Energy

The graphic scenes, pitiful and pathetic, of wildlife writhing in thick oily substances arouse emotions ranging from towering rage to sickening despondency. Ever since the explosion of April 20 that killed 11 men on the Transocean Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico, the failure of the industry’s failsafe measures and the ejection of millions of gallons of oil into the ocean, the world has been transfixed over the magnitude of the crisis.

Support My Plan to Fix Our Tax Assessment System

When I took office on January 1, 2010, I knew Nassau County was in bad shape. What I didn’t realize was just how bad things actually were. From overtaxed residents, to a looming $286 million deficit caused by government waste and our broken property tax assessment system, Nassau County was in rough shape.


Letter: School Board Trustee Thanks Community Members for Support

I would like to thank the communities of Floral Park and Bellerose for their support for me in the school board trustee election. I will do my best to maintain the standards that we have set for the education of our children while looking to keep our taxes reasonable.

House Passes Much-Needed Legislation Aimed  At Lowering Costs to Manufacturers

Yesterday, I voted in favor of the U.S. Manufacturing Enhancement Act of 2010 to help thousands of U.S. manufacturers compete at home and abroad. This legislation, which passed the House with a final vote of 378-43, contains hundreds of tariff suspensions and reductions that will help American companies manufacture and sell goods to continue growing and supporting American jobs. These reductions and suspensions of import duties lower costs for materials that American businesses use in production and thereby increase the competitiveness of our products. 


Letter: Floral Park-Bellerose School Board Thanks Community for High Voter Turnout

Friday, 28 May 2010 00:00
This past Tuesday over 2900 people came to the John Lewis Childs School and the Floral Park-Bellerose School on a rainy day to cast ballots in our school board and budget vote elections.This was certainly the largest turnout in more than a decade. I want to thank our communities for turning out as they did and passing both the elementary school and high school budgets.  On behalf of the Boards of Education at both the Floral Park-Bellerose and Sewanhaka Central High School Districts, I want to promise that we’ll work to continue to provide a top quality educational experience for all our children at as reasonable a cost as possible.

I also want to particularly thank our parents, students, administrators, teachers, staff and my fellow board members for their hard work on the budgets this year.

There was tremendous negativity in the days leading up to the vote, with anonymous fliers with half-truths being placed in mailboxes throughout our communities and an Elmont civic leader urging a no vote on News 12 to “send a message.” I believe a message was delivered. People in our communities value the education being provided and believe it to be a worthy and necessary expense even in these trying, tight economic times. They made a conscious choice that our children come first and it’s important to maintain our schools and their programs.

Finally, thank you also to all of the PTAs, civic groups, organizations and individuals that permitted our elementary school superintendent Dr. Pombonyo, as well as our high school superintendent Mr. Meierdiercks and/or Assistant Superintendent for Business Ms. Kenney, to make presentations to them within the past months and get the word out to the public.

Remembering the Unsung Heroes of Vietnam

You’re a 19-year-old kid. You’re critically wounded and dying in the jungle. Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 hundred yards away, that your own infantry commander has ordered the Medi-Vac helicopters to stop coming in.

You’re lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you’re not getting out. Your family is halfway around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you’ll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.


Around the Town: May 21, 2010

I would like to take this opportunity to inform residents of Hempstead Town’s SWIFT911 emergency notification service. The system provides a mechanism for the town to phone, e-mail or text message residents and businesses under its jurisdiction in the event of an emergency such as a severe storm evacuation. Such situations may include water main breaks, flooding, weather emergencies or natural disasters. Non-emergency contact may also be made in the event of town water department pipe flushing, which may affect water quality.

The Great Struggle Against the Third Track

Supervisor Kate Murray recently held a press conference regarding the MTA’s announcement that it would not include the Third Track in its 2010-2014 capital budgets. The Third Track had engrossed the interest and energies of our community as no other issue in the recent past. So it was fitting that the supervisor held the conference at the Floral Park Train Station.
