Editorial: Think Holiday Shopping... Think Great Neck!

Friday, 16 December 2011 00:00
Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, we are well into the Hanukah and Christmas seasons. We all anticipate the joys of those holidays, the family get-togethers, the parties, and the fun of giving and receiving gifts.

Retailers say that the day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the season. But this year, with Hanukah and Christmas so close together, it should be a pretty long and busy holiday shopping season all month. And, once again, we want to remind everyone that when you think shopping, think Great Neck.

 

Great Neck Notebook: December 13, 2011

Price of Success

Every few days, Great Neck is mentioned on the evening newscasts of the major television networks in connection with the widening SAT cheating scandal. More and more schools (and communities) are being implicated. It is cold comfort to know that Great Neck isn’t the only place this went on.

When I mentioned the scandal to my son Josh, who attended high school in Great Neck in the late ’90s, he told me that “kids try to take shortcuts and cheating is easier than studying.”  

 

Editorial: 2 Potters Lane Case: Answering to a Higher Authority

Friday, 09 December 2011 10:43
Aside from the shock and anger about a wooded lot being clear-cut illegally, residents were perplexed when counsel to the Village of Great Neck Board of Zoning Appeals stated that under New York law, if a member of a zoning board is affiliated with an applicant and there is “no financial gain” involved, that member is not required to recuse himself from hearing the case.

During the early months of the open case, then board member and congregation member Nick Nabavian was insistent that he would be able to participate objectively in the hearing. By custom at least, board members in the Village of Great Neck had always stepped aside if an application of any kind came before a board from a religious organization where they held membership.

 

Letter: A Tony for “Toney” Great Neck North High School

Friday, 09 December 2011 00:00

We attended the Saturday evening performance of Les Miserables at Great Neck North High School.

It was an excellent production from beginning to end. The Junior Players were entertaining and enthusiastic actors, singers and dancers. The quality of the orchestra was Broadway worthy.

When others seem fixated on the negative news from North High it is important for those of us who see another facet to remind them that there is still a good deal to be proud of around here.

Letter: Spinney Hill Presentation

Friday, 09 December 2011 00:00

On Nov. 16, I was privileged to attend a meeting of the Great Neck Historical Society at the Main Library. A film was shown that gave the history of the African/American community in the Spinney Hill and the Steamboat Road areas of our North Hempstead Town. Lloyd Means, who grew up in Great Neck, and Dedrick Johnson, Spinney Hill resident, interviewed and filmed people of the area who know its history, and who presented that history with love and passion for their home territory and all that has transpired politically, economically and educationally. The Spinney Hill area, and the High Street Community Center have produced leaders in the arts and I remember it as a thriving and nurturing place for the youth of the area. I worked at the Head Start on High Street and met many wonderful mentors for the older students who played ball at High Street, wrote and acted in plays, were tutored and had a place to gather after school. Many would love to see the programs offered restored.

Lifeline

No one wants to eat at a soup kitchen. Yet for many who have run out of other choices, it is a lifeline that keeps them going through rough times. I see their faces every week: the homeless veterans, the senior citizens living on fixed incomes, mothers with small children, fathers who have lost their jobs in this recession.

 

Editorial: Upcoming Special District Elections: Be in the Know

Friday, 25 November 2011 00:00
On Dec.13, two very important local elections will be held. Commissioner Ivar Segalowitz of the Great Neck Park District is retiring from the position. (Thank you, Ivar, for your many years of thoughtful and tireless service to the community.) Four candidates have filed to run for the position.

An incumbent commissioner at the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire and Water District will be facing three challengers for the commissioner position.

It’s All in the Game

I want to step into the painting
of Cezanne’s, “Card Players,”
where all is the game
the red kerchief draws the eye
balanced muted colors
bathe in warm light

tranquility companionship
competition concentration
tobacco aroma perhaps a wager

is the boy sending signals
will the watcher join the game
is it a Sunday afternoon

I want to peek at the cards
maybe light up a pipe
pull up a chair
join their world.

Editorial: Memo To: All Candidates, Democratic and Republican From: A Weary Public Re: About Those Signs

Friday, 18 November 2011 00:00
Signs spring up like mushrooms before elections. And after elections...sorry politicians, to us they are just.... litter. Those signs spell TROUBLE. It must be a tradition.

Candidates spend a fair amount of money on them, ever hopeful that their message will sway some undecided voter.
