Shop And Dine In Garden City

If you have not been to Seventh Street for sometime, I highly recommend that you go there. There are several new interesting businesses that you should see and enjoy. The residents of Garden City are very fortunate to have viable retail businesses on Seventh Street, Franklin Avenue and New Hyde Park Road where there is a good variety of quality merchandise and family dining experiences available to be enjoyed. Please support these businesses and enjoy the products, variety and outstanding customer service.

Happy Mother’s Day

Last week, the New York Institute of Technology hosted three events in which Paul Burrell, who was the butler to Princess Diana, was the guest of honor. I attended one of these events, and was eager to do so as I have always found Diana to be a fascinating historical figure. Despite her fame and fortune, she gave of herself to help others who were suffering. She was an individual who was truly working to change the world for the better and tragically, she was taken from us much too soon. During his presentation, Burrell spoke of this.

“It’s better to give than to receive because when you give there are no strings attached,” Burrell recalls Diana saying.

 

Editorial: Hail The High Holidays

Written by Dave Gil de Rubio Friday, 21 September 2012 00:00

We are in the middle of the High Holidays, two of the most important religious observances in Judaism. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, just passed and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, (which is also the holiest day of the year for Jewish people), begins at sundown on Tuesday, September 25 and goes until sundown of Wednesday, September 26. Hope surrounds the former with meals including honey and apples (symbolizing a sweet new year) and challah bread (representing the cycle of the year) also being served. With reflection and repentance being at the heart of the latter, a number of sacrifices are made including no eating and drinking, with the idea that the state of unease the body feels allows one to empathize with what others feel when they are in discomfort or pain. So to all our neighbors at the Garden City Jewish Center, Shana Tova (a good New Year) and Tsom Kal ([an] easy fast).

Not So Humble Opinion: September 18, 2012

A New Frontier Of Manliness

Many phenomena that spawn on the Internet deserve to stay there. For example, if you have no knowledge of the “Double Rainbow!” incident from 2010, it’s probably just as well. Short version: it was a waste of everyone’s time.

However, the ascendance of Bronies— or males who watch My Little Pony and are proud of it— is a subject where a good 99.5 percent of the dialogue by and about them takes place exclusively online, so I have to break my typical rules about leaving Internet culture alone. You may wonder why, in this time of elections and natural disasters you should care about males watching My Little Pony. I think it may be illustrative of an encouraging social trend, but let me explain and then you can be the judge.

The Blanco Sessions (Cow Island Music) is the final album by rockabilly pioneer Janis Martin. Dubbed the Female Elvis during her ’50s heyday, Martin was coaxed back into the studio by diehard fan/Americana stalwart Rosie Flores. Recorded four months before her 2007 death from cancer, these 11 songs show the Virginia native still had plenty left in the tank as she tore into covers of Dave Alvin, Don Gibson and Bill Monroe while also breathing life into early rock & roll gems like “Wham Bam Jam” and “Wild One (Real Wild Child).”

Last weekend was the kickoff of the 2012-13 NFL season. While the Giants fell to the NFC rival Dallas Cowboys 24-17 on Wednesday, September 5, the New York Jets laid a 48-28 smackdown on AFC East opponent Buffalo Bills. And while local Big Blue fans remain confident of Eli Manning regaining his footing, Gang Green fans harbor hopes this opening salvo promises more of the same for incumbent QB Mark Sanchez. It’s all well and good but there is a whole other fan base for which the NFL is a sidelight to the main event—those who live and die with the Garden City High School Trojans football team. Always a source of pride for the local community, last year’s squad gave residents more to swell their chests over. They won their third consecutive County Championship as the only undefeated team in Nassau while possessing the best defensive record. Coach Tom Flatley is returning for his 28th season after recovering from hip replacement surgery and there are lofty expectations for the team as the Trojans have been seeded first going into this season. A 28-12 victory over the New Hyde Park Gladiators at Warren King Field on Saturday, September 8, is an encouraging start for what promises to be another successful Trojans season.

A Story Worth Three Dollars

As I looked at the bills in my hand, my heart skipped a few beats as I realized that only the singles remained, and the twenties and tens were missing. I had brought some extra cash with me on a trip to Boston to purchase Red Sox and Patriots merchandise. I know Karl Malden used to say, “Don’t carry cash, carry American Express Traveler’s Checks,” but the vendors outside of Fenway seem to prefer cash. So I stood in the McDonald’s frantically looking for my vacation money, which I had been saving in a bank account throughout the summer and had just withdrawn from the bank only two days prior. It wasn’t a whole lot of money. Not even enough to buy an iPad or even a Kindle Fire, but it was enough to take a little piece of Boston home with me.

BLACKBERRY LIGHT (Rockingham Records) is the sixth full-length outing by Charlie Mars. Known to most for being the beau of West Wing/Weeds actress Mary Louise Parker, Mars is a full-fledged singer-songwriter oozing with talent. With his languid drawl and picturesque lyrical imagery, his sound falls somewhere in the neighborhood of Jack Johnson and Jazon Mraz.

 

Editorial: School Springs Eternal

Written by Dave Gil de Rubio Friday, 07 September 2012 00:00

As the first week of school comes to end, we are given the chance to stand on the cusp of two seasons. With summer 2012’s end comes a farewell to crazy weather patterns, the London Olympics and the senseless incidents of random gun violence. Coming up on the horizon is an election shrouded in enough vitriol that to call it contentious would be a significant understatement. But despite these dark clouds, the other commonality we’re all sharing is the start of a new school year. And when it comes to education, this is one area that the Garden City School District has plenty of reasons to be overflowing with optimism. The numerous accolades and awards that the student body regularly pulls in are way too numerous to list in this limited space. But given the fact that 12-year-old middle-schooler Brandon Gong is a finalist competing for $25,000 and the title of “America’s Top Young Scientist” is only further validation that school does indeed spring eternal in the Village of Garden City.
