Levin Judges

Last month, A. Thomas Levin, a member of Garden City’s Meyer, Suozzi, English & Klein P.C. law firm and chair of the firm’s Local Government, Land Use Law and Environmental Compliance and the Professional Responsibility practice groups served as a judge for the final three rounds of the 40th Annual New York State Metropolitan Area Civil Law Moot Court Competition. This was Levin’s 9th year as a judge.

The competition, for high school students across the metropolitan area, was held at Northport High School. It is a joint effort between the New York State Bar Association’s Law, Youth & Citizenship Committee and Project P.A.T.C.H. in which high school students act as attorneys for adverse parties and as witnesses in hypothetical civil case scenarios. The students are presented with the case materials only a few minutes before the trials commence, and must improvise their presentations based on training they have received with respect to trial procedures.

Levin is a former president of the New York State Bar Association and is a life member of that association’s house of delegates. He has also served as a trustee of the New York State Bar Foundation and is a sustaining fellow of that organization.

Wide range of issues covered by

Stewart Manor Board

The Stewart Manor Board of Trustees began its most recent meeting in high spirits, presiding from the newly-renovated, cherrywood justice’s bench in village hall.

Mayor Tangredi offered up thanks to the court system for providing the grant that paid for the improved bench. Trustee John R. Egan also was in fine fettle in his return after missing previous meetings due to health issues.

Focus groups to continue this fall

The Garden City Public Library’s Board of Trustees and Library Director Lisa Paulo are dedicated to continuing the patron-friendly atmosphere in the library. It is an experienced and dedicated panel, who with a knowledgeable staff under the direction of Library Director Lisa Paulo, will continue to develop interesting innovations. The trustees anticipate many productive years ahead.

The library’s successful focus groups will continue in 2014. All patrons are invited to attend. The board, however, is reaching out to parents of school-age children to round out the participants. Anyone interested in contributing their time and experience is welcome. Please call the library at 516-742-8405  x210 and leave your name and telephone and/or email address.

Garden City gals lead FLG

to three championships

The FLG 2018 girls have established themselves as one of FLG’s premier teams of the summer. Garden City’s Julia Kavan and Anna Mandaro at the midfield and Megan Sprotte and Ann Sullivan defensively led their team to three championships this summer. The girls “really started to gel and play as a unit,” said Coach McGinty, successfully executing new plays, transitioning well and crashing on defense. With the improvements across the board, the team hasn’t lost a game since the first tournament of the summer. These girls were leaders on and off the field and are taking FLG Girls Lacrosse to the next level.

Two friends get back on track through running

The other day I woke up to this text from my Garden City friend, Claire LoRusso: “I need help. I am running a half marathon in October. I have not run in years. Where do I start? Miss you.” I got giddy, in a dorky way, because I always get excited when someone wants to run.

In this case, however, it was more of a “Welcome back, Claire.”
