The warm weather is here and summer is right around the corner, but there’s still time to plan your child’s summer activities. Fresh off a successful 2009 season of instructional clinics, the Town of Hempstead Lacrosse Academy (TOHLA) is ready to face-off for its sixth anniversary season.
More than 1,200 youngsters graduated with honors from the Town of Hempstead Lacrosse Academy last summer. Weeklong clinics at nearby town parks team top flight coaches with aspiring players to improve skill level and enhance enjoyment.

I have great news for the almost 45,000 Hempstead Town veterans who fought to defend our nation’s freedom. The veteran’s booth at Hempstead Town Hall has reopened and is serving more clients than ever.
After being closed this past summer by the governor and the New York State Division of Veterans’ Affairs, we are pleased to say that thanks to the Military Order of the Purple Heart, veterans, as well as their spouses and children, can again come to our counseling center every Thursday at Hempstead Town Hall, to discuss veteran benefits and other veteran issues.
Congratulations to Trustees Donald T. Brudie, John J. Watras, Nicholas P. Episcopia and Brian C. Daughney on their election last Tuesday. It is gratifying to note that the affairs of our village are in such capable hands. I look forward to continuing working with the board of trustees, and also working with Brian C. Daughney. I believe we can achieve a great deal over the next year.

I implore all constituents of the 4th Congressional District to demand our Representative (?) Carolyn “Pelosi’s Pet” McCarthy vote against ObamaCare. She never read the House version and voted for it! Now she’ll be voting for a senate version she hasn’t read. Will she ever hold a town hall meeting? Doubtful.
Beginning last month and continuing through late August, Census Bureau temporary field staff will be working within the village to deliver questionnaires and collect information from those who have not returned their Census questionnaire and verify addresses.
