School board shows off improvements at Stratford

This month’s Garden City Board of Education meeting saw a boost in attendance, and not just from district residents. This was the first board meeting to be held at Stratford School, so teachers and students there stopped by to show off the best it has to offer.

Leading the pack was school principal Eileen Vota, who gave the board a tour of the school before the meeting got underway. Along the way, highlights of the capital improvement project were pointed out, all a result of the 2009 School Investment Bond and Energy Performance Contract.

Preparedness is the best remedy for Ebola

Winthrop University Hospital hosted a presentation on the current Ebola epidemic, at the Garden City Library, on Tuesday, Nov. 11. Sponsored by the village’s Property Owners’ Associations, John F. Collins, president and CEO of Winthrop University Hospital and Dr. Michael Ammazzalorso, Winthrop’s Chief Medical Officer provided an overview of the disease along with an update on Winthrop’s preparedness plan.

Dr. Ammazzalorso began his presentation heeding that despite the waning in the press, the disease is still with us. He provided both historical and current day perspectives regarding the epidemic, advising that Ebola is not a new disease. The medical community has been aware of the disease for at least 40 years. Originating in the Congo, Ebola is a zoonosis a disease which has its reservoir in animals and was known for small sporadic outbreaks associated with people who handled bats and rodents or those who consumed bush meat. The current outbreak originated in West Africa, specifically Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia. He noted in Africa that more than 45,000 people have died from the disease.

 

LIRR Parking Paradise

Multiple options help village avoid problems

While parking around LIRR train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, it’s not necessarily the case for Garden City residents, who have five departure points to choose from. The stations—Nassau Boulevard, Garden City, Stewart Manor, Country Life Press and the south side of Merillon Avenue—provide a grand total of 866 spots. (See page 13 sidebar for lot-by-lot breakdown). It’s a luxury many municipalities don’t have, particularly during the holidays. Annual permits run $150 for residents and $300 for non-residents and while people who call Garden City can use any of these five stations, non-residents are restricted to using the 70 spots allocated for their use over at the Stewart Manor station.

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.

Chamber drives initiative to shop locally

The Garden City Chamber of Commerce announced the installation of Shop Garden City banners bearing the Garden City Pineapple on several light poles on Seventh Street, lower Franklin Avenue and New Hyde Park Road. The Chamber initiated this project at the suggestion of Dennis Donnelly, village trustee liaison officer to the business community.

A banner has also been placed in front of the Garden City Hotel to draw visitors to the downtown shops.

Reigning In The Youth

Loitering teens source of ire at recent meeting

The saying, “Idle hands are the devil’s workshop,” came to mind when the issue of students from Sewanhaka High School hanging out at a nearby apartment building was brought up by residents at the Nov. 3 Stewart Manor Board of Trustees meeting. This problem with some of Stewart Manor’s younger neighbors alleging using drugs dominated the evening’s discussion. High school students from the area have drawn the ire of village residents for loitering near Argyle Road before school and committing illicit acts. During the meeting’s public comments, resident Grace Palestino mentioned an ongoing problem relating to illegal drug use behind the nearby Garden Apartments complex. Sewanhaka High School students are suspected of being the main culprits.
