Much like many other areas of Long Island, the Village of Garden City had more than its share of work to do in wrestling with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. According to the LIPA website, as of Monday, Nov. 5, 2,286 Garden City residents and 292 Stewart Manor denizens were without power. As of Monday, Nov. 5, LIPA informed the Village of Garden City that the entire village was to have had power restored no later then by the end of the day on Wednesday, Nov. 7. In the meantime, added police patrols were to have been assigned village wide.
The Garden Parks and Recreation Department, which is responsible for maintaining all foliage-related issues found in the village’s common areas has had its hands full given the fact that more than 54 trees have fallen on houses and side streets. The large amount of power lines knocked down resulted in the issuing of a Nassau County public safety announcement that states, “Area conditions remain extremely dangerous. Do not touch downed wires. Do not touch trees entangled in wires. Traffic lights are not working. Travel is hazardous and not recommended.”

When evaluating how a school district is serving its students and the community as a whole, sometimes it’s necessary to get an extra set of eyes or two for a clear analysis.
At the Oct. 16 Garden City Board of Education meeting, the board and the public got to hear how the district is doing financially, and how the Special Education department is faring. Both reports came from outside parties.
Giacinto is the president and CEO of Carle Place’s PBI Payroll, which does the payroll and outsourcing for human resources for Mill Neck Manor. For years they have been hiring deaf people to work in their organization. “Deafness is not a disability. The deaf workers we have are phenomenal people, extremely patient and extremely dedicated beyond belief and they are inspirational. It’s been a great experience. It adds to the family nature of our company, which is [something] we push for and it gives us a different flavor. It’s nice; emotionally [and] spiritually, it really changes things for us.”

On Tuesday, Nov. 6, voters will go to the polls to decide whether Senator Kemp Hannon (R, C, I, TR) will return to serve his 13th term overall in New York’s 6th Senate District. Running against Hannon is newcomer and fellow Garden City resident Ryan Cronin, a litigator with experience representing victims of financial fraud and a former executive director of the Nassau County Democratic Committee. Hannon recently came in to sit down with Anton Community Newspapers editors to discuss past, present and future issues facing his constituents and policies he’s enacted to address these concerns.
With Romney scoring what many considered an upset victory over Obama’s decidedly lackluster performance in the first debate, this follow-up was going to be a “deal maker or breaker in this campaign,” according to political pundit Chris Matthews, who spoke at Hofstra the prior week. Shortly after moderator Candy Crowley took the stage at 9 p.m., it was clear both candidates were prepared to come out swinging, making for a lively hour and a half that found roughly 65 million viewers tuning in to the town hall-style debate, according to the Nielsen Ratings.
Inside and out, Garden City School District has a fresh new look. District students can create, research, study, and build the foundations for a lifelong love of learning in the many new and upgraded classrooms and work spaces now in use. The sweeping changes were made possible by the School Investment Bond approved by voters on October 27, 2009 and the district’s Energy Performance Contract (EPC).
