Editorial: Hitting The Pitch

Friday, 29 March 2013 00:00

For most Americans, baseball is the sport that comes to mind once spring rolls around. But for the Garden Centennial Soccer Club, warmer weather and longer days means getting the kids to dust off their cleats and pull out their shin guards. It’s a ritual that’s been going on for more than three decades with the largest program, intramurals, getting ready to kick off on Saturday, April 6. The beauty of what the Centennials do is that there are leagues and teams for all ages and abilities, ensuring that anyone looking to participate in the world’s most popular sport gets that opportunity. As if all the volunteering wasn’t great enough, the club is also a fervent supporter of the TOPSoccer Program, which integrates additional support and practices for kids between the ages of 5 and 18 who might want to hit the pitch but because of learning, developmental or behavioral problems, need modifications made in order for them to kick the ball around.

Editorial: Kings And A Queen

Friday, 22 March 2013 00:00

For the dozen years or so that Kings Market has sat on Franklin Avenue, the one constant has been store manager Connie Deckel. A preternaturally friendly person who fits hand in glove in taking the lead on customer service in her market, Deckel has endeared herself to village residents. And while what she does within the four walls of Kings Market is a key reason why people so faithfully patronize this store, Deckel’s heavy involvement in and around Garden City has her a treasured fixture. In addition to serving as the director of the Chamber of Commerce board of directors, she’s tirelessly supported both the Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts of Garden City, is heavily involved in the Salvation Army Holiday Drive and enjoys a strong bond with the Interfaith Nutrition Network (INN), a nonprofit organization serving hungry and homeless Long Islanders. Not surprisingly, the Kings Market manager was the recipient of the 2011 President’s Award given by the chamber. It’s this kind of selfless involvement topped off by Deckel’s relentlessly cheery approach towards everything she does that makes a trip to Kings that much more special whether you’re picking up a carton of milk or doing a full shop.

Editorial: Bon Appétit

Friday, 15 March 2013 00:00
The Garden City Hotel continues to show that it’s not only maintaining its stellar reputation for posh accommodations and five-star service, but striving to up the ante considerably as it proceeds under its new ownership. The latest wrinkle comes in the kitchen of the hotel’s award-winning Rein restaurant, where Executive Chef Michael Mandato recently launched the inaugural Chef’s Table. This new and exclusive monthly dinner series allows guests to get a front-row seat and dine in the chef’s kitchen while their meals are being prepared. For this elaborate 5-course meal, foodies got to sup on such delectable dishes as grilled smoked quail breast, butter poached Maine lobster and char sui braised pork belly. The accompanying photo of the Colorado lamb tasting is as mouth-wateringly good to the palate as it looks to the eye. It’s yet another reason to check into the Garden City Hotel.

Spring Cleanup

All residents are asked to assist in the task of cleaning up our community to keep Garden City beautiful. This can be done by picking up paper, cans, bottles and other debris that may have been deposited on the streets and other public areas near your homes. A few minutes of cooperative effort by all of us can make our village look 100 percent better.

Residents are also reminded that rubbish should not be placed on the curb before the evening prior to the collection day. It detracts from the aesthetics of the village and poor treatment of one’s neighbors to ignore the village law that specifies that rubbish should not be deposited at curbside before the evening prior to collection.

 

Editorial: Coaching Counts

Friday, 08 March 2013 00:00

Recently, the Garden City High School girls basketball team helped Coach Anthony Sparachia notch his 200th win. It’s a significant achievement that has Sparachia joining a number of other Trojans coaches that have stuck around long enough to rack up the wins and championships including Community Achievement Award Winner Diane “Chappy” Chapman (357 field hockey wins; 203 lacrosse wins) and football head coach Tom Flatley (five Long Island Championships).

Longevity is the key to this kind of success and with it comes the stability needed to maintain a quality sports program. As loath as the Jets fan in me is to admit, look no further than New England Patriots and Bill Belichick, who has managed to lock up three Super Bowl championships with a good shot at corralling a few more before he hangs up his whistle. It’s this kind of consistent demand of excellence that’s made Belichick as much of a winner as the coaches that are such an integral part of the Garden City School District athletic program.

Emergency Management Radio Tested Weekly

Each week, Garden City along with all villages within Nassau County, performs a radio-test with the Nassau County Office of Emergency Management Office (NCOEM) to ensure that their assigned radio is working properly. These radios operate at 800 MHz frequency and have been in operation for the past several years as a result of funding from former State Senator Michael Balboni. In the event of a major disaster where normal radio communications were disrupted each Village would have the ability to communicate with each other directly as well as with the NCOEM.

 

Editorial: Building For The Future

Friday, 01 March 2013 00:00

They say technology is our nation’s future and if that’s the case, it’s not too far-fetched to say that the students participating in the Garden City Robotics League (GCRL) have gotten a real leg up on their peers. In its first season of existence, the GCRL teams made a strong showing at the FIRST LEGO League Qualifier Tournament held at Central Islip Senior High School on February 2 and 3. One squad, the Robotic Rebels, even wound up taking first place for its entry in the Innovative Solutions category for its Senior Saver entry, a wireless device that shuts off the main gas valve in a home during an emergency situation. With our area having been through the horrors of Hurricane Sandy, this is an invention that can have very real-world applications. This showing by the GCRL promises to be the first of many victories, some of which may come at the next competition on March 3, when our local robotics squads head over to compete at Longwood High School in Middle Island.
