It was the 4th of July and I left my daughter in Oyster Bay early because my heart was bothering me.
Suddenly, coming down the hill from Oyster Bay around the pond, all systems of the truck seemed to fail. I tried steering with all my might to no avail. At the last second the vehicle stopped just at the fence guarding the pond.
Relief washed over me. Suddenly a car coming down the hill slammed into me. The driver got out, looked, saw no damage to his car. He took off, offering me no help. I was stunned at the apparent human disinterest. I then realized that all the subsequent cars would hit me as the visibility was none.
On the Legislature’s Special Session
Following spring and summer budget negotiations offering reckless borrowing, payment deferrals, and one-shot gimmicks, the Assembly Majority leadership, under direction from Governor Paterson, has finally settled on their deficit-closing plan: a phantom federal bailout.“Like the Roman emperor who made a desert and called it peace, Governor Paterson has demanded another unproductive special session and called it progress,” said Assemblyman Michael A. Montesano (R,I,C-Glen Head).
At this week’s city council meeting, the local Republican Committee chairman showed a sophisticated understanding of legal wording during a hearing on land use. He also made an educated point during a term-limit hearing.
Whether you agree or disagree with him, the Republican leader has offered valid points and insight at most public hearings and also during his own campaign last year.
On behalf of the officers and members of American Legion Post 336, please accept our congratulations and thanks for your beautiful office building at our famous “four corners.”
You have certainly enhanced our beloved Glen Head with a classic addition to our landscape.
We appreciate having businessmen such as you who respect our town as you do.
William J. Laderer, Commander - American Legion Post 336
I read remarks that Assemblyman Lavine has been publishing about the proposed merger of the Nassau County Police Department’s 2nd and 6th Precincts.
There is nothing in Assemblyman Lavine’s professional background, education, experience or training that provides him with the knowledge, skill or ability to assess municipal police operations or administration.
As Supervising Judge for the City of Glen Cove, on Tuesday, Aug. 3, I had the honor and privilege to be recognized by the Glen Cove Police Department and Police Chief William Whitton at Glen Cove’s National Night Out Against Crime for the work the judiciary does to prevent crime in our community and help raise our children in a safe and healthy environment. I am proud to be honored along with Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice, whose commitment to crime prevention and safety is well-known to everyone in the county.
David J. Whitting wrote to the Record Pilot (Aug. 5 issue) to protest the email from the superintendent of the North Shore School District inquiring of the community whether individuals might be willing and able to contribute to a capital campaign for the schools. Mr. Whitting asks why, instead of contemplating a fund-raising campaign, the district cannot simply cut costs and live within its means.
I have rave revues for the work of Assemblyman Charles Lavine. In all my dealings with him I have found him to be an honest, forthright and perceptive strategist and advocate for his constituency. There are too many examples to report in a short letter. I will provide one recent example of his outstanding work. I went to the Albany Legislature, along with other library supporters, to speak up for our beloved Sea Cliff Library and other local libraries.
