Moving on to state storm recovery appointment

North Hempstead Town Supervisor Jon Kaiman, a long-time Great Neck resident who has served as town supervisor for 10 years, will leave his position the week of Sept. 23. 

 

“It’s bittersweet, but it’s time to move on,” Kaiman told the Great Neck Record, just after announcing  his departure date.

 

Fire Fraud

Written by Carol Frank Wednesday, 18 September 2013 00:00

Last week, a long-time Vigilant Fire Department member got a phone call from someone claiming to be representing the Great Neck Fire Safety Program and asking for a donation. Knowing that none of the local fire departments ever solicit by phone, Robert Lincoln, made quick work of the caller and reported it to the 3rd Precinct.

 

Vigilant Chief Laurence Jacobs told the Record: “We are too busy answering calls and undergoing training to ever have the time to call our residents asking for money. On top of that, we receive great support from the community. There is no such organization in town ... we would certainly know about it if it existed.”

Latest Plan For Academy Gardens

Written by Wendy Kreitzman Thursday, 12 September 2013 00:00

New proposal does not require variances

A new proposal to tear down an old rent-stabilized apartment complex and build a new one at Academy Gardens in the Village of Great Neck has surfaced. A previous plan by property owner Kings Point Gate Association was turned down in 2007, with height variances denied. This time the proposal for the 40-unit building at 794 Middle Neck Road, housing basically working class families, needs no variances, but will be heard by the village’s planning board on Thursday, Oct. 17.

 

And, as last time, residents are fearful of the proposal, afraid that they will lose their homes. Many have lived in the complex since the 1960s and 1970s. Residents and the group’s attorney Fred Pollack all claim that they received no formal notice of the new proposal. 

 

Another School Year Begins

Written by Dr. Thomas P. Dolan, SUperintendent, GNPS Wednesday, 11 September 2013 00:00

Offering an academic experience that challenges and supports every student

Some in Albany would have us believe that the only school days that mattered last year and that will matter this year are those involving students taking state-developed and state-created tests. 

Last year, I found that there were many days that were more important, more significant, and more indicative of the quality experience that our students enjoyed. They serve as harbingers of the year ahead. I’d like to share a few.

 

April 8, 2013. In a district with almost a 200-year history, there are few opportunities to see “firsts,” but one occurred when the North High School track team hosted a home meet at our new North Middle School track. The performance of the student athletes was heightened by their excitement at having a track that they could call their own. Several members of the team thanked me for this addition and I quickly reminded them that this new facility was a gift from (and to) the community.

The Yogathon & Wellness Fair, scheduled for Sept. 22 at Firefighters; Park on Grace Avenue is moving full speed ahead.  Registration brochures are displayed in over 80 different stores and businesses in Great Neck, and also can be found at our Great Neck public libraries and village halls.

 

This “first of its kind” Fair in Great Neck will benefit the Great Neck Breast Cancer Coalition (GNBCC), an all volunteer organization that has been servicing the Great Neck and Long Island community with many programs since 1992. “We are delighted to see the positive feedback we are receiving from the community for this event which is in concert with our mission to promote good health,” said Laura Weinberg, president of the GNBCC.

 

Library Bond Set

Written by Carol Frank Friday, 06 September 2013 00:00

Another step in the long journey to renovate the Great Neck Library’s only building that it owns, Main, was taken on Aug. 27 at a board meeting. The board of trustees voted unanimously to approve a number of $10.4 million for bonding.

 

On Nov. 19, the public will have an opportunity to vote on a 20-year bond for $10.4 estimated to cover the costs of completely gutting the building, installing all new infrastructure systems and making a classic building with a gorgeous backdrop, all new inside with more public spaces and a flexible, more functional layout.

 

Stepping Stones Lighthouse

Written by Carol Frank Thursday, 05 September 2013 00:00

New life has been breathed into a community opportunity for seafarers and landlubbers alike ... the restoration of the Stepping Stones Lighthouse, a historical treasure built in 1876 that, while still guiding commercial vessels and recreational boaters safely past treacherous rocks, has fallen into ruin.

 

On Aug. 26, an enthusiastic group of Great Neck activists met with Pamela Setchell, president of the Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society to learn more about how a lighthouse can be saved.

 

Jeffrey Benjamin Runs For Town Board

Written by Wendy Kreitzman Wednesday, 04 September 2013 00:00

“Great Neck is amazing, I love it here,” Jeffrey Benjamin told the Great Neck Record. Running for the North Hempstead Town Board for the fifth council district, Benjamin said he is seeking the position to help members of the community, “to represent them.” Professionally, he is a consumer fraud and commercial litigation attorney, “representing the people.”

 

Since 1997, Benjamin has devoted himself to the rights of consumers and small businesses, in civil litigation. He noted that “Consumer rights are trampled upon regularly and in many different forums” and he is there, professionally, to advocate for the financially vulnerable. He has built his law practice on the motto of “Doing Well by Doing Good.”
