Editorial: Did You Know That GNVOA Meetings Are for All Nine Villages!

Friday, 20 January 2012 00:00

Are you represented at the monthly Great Neck village officials meetings?

We have ‘‘played this song before,’’ but we certainly believe that this editorial deserves another run. While we regularly attend the monthly Great Neck Village Officials Association meetings, unfortunately, we seem to be missing some members each time. Each meeting we are treated to a most interesting speaker and an opportunity to catch up on all the news of the peninsula. It is a wonderful time to hear about what is happening and what the future holds, as well as a great chance to have a say about our community. And it is a really terrific opportunity for our nine village mayors and their trustees to casually “network.”

These meetings are generally pretty well attended. Mayors, or representatives, of most of the nine Great Neck villages do attend, as do many deputy mayors, trustees and village clerks. The Town of North Hempstead is more often than not represented too. But, sadly, there is almost never a full complement.

17 and Homeless

The newspapers and local TV channels ran the story. Even some national news shows ran it. Who could resist? Samantha Garvey, 17 years old, a senior at Brentwood High School on Long Island, was a semifinalist in the prestigious Intel science competition. And she’s homeless.

Samantha lives with her brother, sister, and parents in a Bay Shore homeless shelter—the family was evicted on New Year’s day from their home after a series of financial problems left them in dire financial straits.   Although her long-term goal is to be a marine biologist, right now Samantha‘s priority is to help her family.

 

Editorial: Six Village Elections Coming Up …Think Before You Run for Office!

Friday, 13 January 2012 00:00
Six Great Neck villages will see elections in March, including Great Neck Plaza, Great Neck Estates, Kensington, Russell Gardens, Saddle Rock and Thomaston. We sincerely hope that all who choose to run for office have the absolutely essential experience needed for the job.

We have made this point several times before in many editorials, but we just can’t say this enough! We support our local governments and work hard to bring all elections and all candidates to the forefront. We respect all candidates’ decisions to run for office. The Great Neck Record does not endorse any candidates, but we do endorse honest, fair elections, and we urge all prospective candidates to think hard, and work hard, before they announce their intentions to run.

 

Great Neck Park District State of the Parks Message: January 11. 2012

Written by Commissioner Robert Lincoln, Chairman Friday, 13 January 2012 00:00

In reporting on the state of our parks, we must first acknowledge the work of Commissioner Ivar Segalowitz for the past nine years. His dedication, hard work and skill have, without question, contributed significantly to the well being of the Great Neck Park District. Ivar, we all thank you.

The voters have now passed the baton to our newest commissioner Daniel Nachmanoff. We welcome Commissioner Nachmanoff and look forward to working with him. We know that he has much to contribute, and that he is eager to get started. We will make sure to keep him busy.

 

Editorial: Facing a Snowy Winter?

Friday, 06 January 2012 00:00
If last winter was any indication, we might well be facing a very snowy winter again this year. So far this season we are spoiled with early autumn-like days that lull us into thinking we might be spared major snowstorms this year. However, the fact remains we may yet face a cold, snowy winter like last year and we can’t forget the very real problems that the white stuff can cause for the elderly.

As December comes every year I find myself discussing the weather with friends and debating the health risks related to snow shoveling. One year a friend told me how he had bought a snow blower, to make the clean-up easier, less strenuous, and he added that he also took the time to clean the snow for his elderly neighbor. How very kind, how very thoughtful!

Editorial: Our New Year’s Wish for Great Neck

Friday, 30 December 2011 00:00

Our New Year’s wish for Great Neck is, as ever, one for peace, and particularly peace among neighbors. In this large, diverse community we call Great Neck, we are all neighbors. But we do not always get along with one another. Perhaps, for the New Year, we could all consider trying to appreciate our differences and taking special care to be sure that the quality of life we have all come to enjoy may be preserved for us and for future generations.

A happy and peaceful New Year for Great Neck!

The Good Old Days

Like anyone else with half a brain, I miss the good old days. Holiday time brings that out in me; I slip seamlessly from an adult male 63 years old to an adult male 10 years old.   It’s so easily done, that both of us—the 63 year old and the 10 year old—look the same to the casual observer.

I suspect, like many of you, all the frenzied shopping, that infects America each December like a bad case of the flu, makes me want to lock myself in the bathroom and not come out until January heralds a return to sanity.

 

Editorial: Happy Holidays!

Friday, 23 December 2011 00:00
On Sunday we celebrate both Christmas and the sixth night of Hanukah. We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our readers a very Happy Hanukah and a very Merry Christmas!
Having the two holidays coincide can be very special, as we see menorahs and Christmas trees placed side-by-side in shops, along with a delightful mixture of tree ornaments and dreidels, chocolate Hanukah ‘‘gelt’’ and candy canes, and a tumble of red and green and blue and silver wrapping paper and bows.
We hope that all of our friends and neighbors take the time, and make the effort, to enjoy all of these holidays together, as one community. While it is a real joy to celebrate your own holiday, it is a special joy to really appreciate someone else’s holiday too.
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukah!

The Unexpected Gift

Salesmen who sell lumber and plywood (like me) get few chances to inject whimsy into the ordinary course of commerce. But holiday time is the season of miracles and if not miracles, then tiny surprises.

So it was when I put a phone call into one of my customers in Long Island City last week. I was nearby, but there being few legal places to park in that area, I decided to call and ask if they needed any material. I was disappointed when the customer’s answering machine went on, but in a flash realized this was a golden opportunity.
