Editorial: Kings Point Election, Afterthoughts

Written by Carol Frank Friday, 29 June 2012 00:00

The incumbent and the challenger for the mayorship of the Village of Kings Point, in interviews following the vote count at village hall which overwhelmingly swept Kalnick, Kwiat and Harounian back into office, agreed on one thing. Both indicated that they were proud that village residents turned out in full force to exercise their voting rights. For both Michael Kalnick and Margie Sasson,  the turnout confirmed that residents in Kings Point do care mightily about their village and how it is run.

The Record asked Mayor Kalnick what he had learned from the campaign and the election. He said, “I learned that I need to reach out more. I always thought that residents know that if they have issues, we’re here for them. But, I need to make more of an effort to reach out...and I will. We need to get more people involved in our various boards and to help prepare them to step into leadership positions.”


A Tribute To The Late Evelyn Weinstein

Friday, 29 June 2012 00:00

(Editor’s Note: This article, written by Karen Weisberg, appeared in the July 26, 1984 issue of the Great Neck Record in an article entitled “Grandes Dames” Evelyn Weinstein. This was one of a series of profiles on the extraordinary women of Great Neck, who, over the years, with style and dedication, helped shape this community. The Record is reprinting the article as a tribute to Evelyn Weinstein, who died earlier this month.)

The waters are calm on Little Neck Bay and Evelyn Weinstein appears equally calm and serene as she gazes out upon the scene from the vantage point of her living room, a room designed to take full advantage of the view.


Editorial: Congratulations To Our Graduates!

Written by Wendy Karpel Kreitzman: Friday, 22 June 2012 00:00

The end of June, the time when all of our graduate students and college students have graduated, our high school seniors are just about to graduate, and all of our younger students have enjoyed their ‘‘moving up’’ days too. It is a time to celebrate, to look back and to look ahead.

Be it a move to a new school or an additional degree or the prospect of an exciting job, all of our graduates have much reason to look forward. For sure, the future looks bright for these eager young people!


Editorial: Election Time: Please Do Vote!

Written by Wendy Karpel Kreitzman: Friday, 15 June 2012 00:00
This coming Tuesday, June 19, three of our villages are holding elections. Uncontested elections are being held in the villages of Great Neck and Lake Success. The mayor and two trustees are being contested in Kings Point. We sincerely hope that all residents of these three villages will take the time to go and vote.     

Certainly in the case of a contested election, voting is extremely important. As a matter of fact, with our relatively small villages and special districts, one or two votes really can make a difference. But even in uncontested elections, your vote is important. Voting for the public servants who give so much to the community is the one way we can show support and say “thank you” to those who “do” for all of us.

Passing Lane

A few months ago, I said good-bye to my faithful Toyota Matrix. I bought it used in 2006 with 10,000 miles on it and since then had put on 140,000 more miles visiting my Long Island customers. It served me well through rain and snow, traffic delays and construction on the Long Island Expressway. When it was due for its last inspection, the mechanic told me it wouldn’t pass without significant repairs and it didn’t make sense to spend $2,000 on a six-year-old car.

I thought about selling it, but that didn’t make financial sense either.  Then I decided to donate it to help an organization that has been helping Long Islanders in need for over 25 years: the INN. They arranged to have it towed away and a few weeks later sent me a donation letter with the official “donation” value stated as per official IRS regulations. I’m getting a nice deduction on my next year’s tax return and my car is helping someone else get their life turned around.


Editorial: How About A Book Store In Great Neck!

Written by Wendy Karpel Kreitzman: Friday, 08 June 2012 00:00
It’s time! We have waited long enough! It’s way past due! It’s time for a book store in Great Neck once again!

Over and over again, wherever we go, we hear the same cry: “Why can’t we have a book store in Great Neck?” Although quite a few book stores have come and gone on the peninsula, it is almost impossible to believe that, where once we supported several book stores, now there are none. Why?

Good Story, New Ending

Everybody loves a good story. And the reason we love them is that we see ourselves in them. Sometimes we hear someone else’s story and say, “Boy, is he lucky—I wish that was me.” And sometimes we hear someone’s story and we say, “I’m glad that’s not me.”

Sometimes we feel envy, sometimes pride, sometimes we feel happy.  “It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.” Sometimes we feel sad. “What a shame.  Did you hear what happened to …?” Sometimes we feel relief. “I don’t know if I could cope with that…”


Editorial: Slow Down In Our Parking Garages!

Friday, 01 June 2012 00:00

You would think it would be a no-brainer, driving slowly and carefully through the parking garages and parking lots in town. But no, it’s not. Far from it. Driving through the carefully planned parking spaces in Great Neck should be a pleasant experience; we should all feel so fortunate to have more spots than most realize available throughout the peninsula. But navigating our vehicles through municipal lots and garages can be a tricky feat. And walking in those garages and lots can too often be a particularly harrowing experience.


Editorial: Election Time ‘Letters To The Editor’ Policies

Friday, 25 May 2012 00:00
As a new set of elections draws near next month, and three Great Neck villages prepare for those elections (including three contested elections in Kings Point), the Great Neck Record reminds our readers that there are specific guidelines for submitting an election time letter to the editor.

To be considered for publication, letters should be limited to 300-400 words (one quarter page is roughly 400 words). Letters longer than this may not be used or may be shortened by the editor without contacting the writer. We also may edit letters for legal reasons or grammar without contacting the writer.

For Granted

It is the nature of the human experience that we tend to take things for granted. What has always been part of our lives we expect to always remain part of our lives. We usually don’t value things until we lose them.

Up until a few weeks ago, the act of walking (for me) was as commonplace and unremarkable as breathing. I did it and didn’t think much about it. Then I injured my right hip. How I injured it I still don’t know, but every step I took included a stabbing pain. My right leg felt like it might buckle at any moment when I put weight on it.
