Letter: A Letter to the Great Neck Community

Friday, 24 July 2009 00:00
This is my first message to the community since assuming the position of Superintendent of Schools on July 1, 2009. I know of no better way to start other than by expressing how fortunate I am to now be a part of this outstanding school district and fine community. While I am only recently “on the job” officially, I have had an opportunity, over the four months since my appointment, to learn a great deal about the district. I have been able to visit every school, engage in conversations with many of my new colleagues, visit numerous classrooms, attend some outstanding school events, and speak to hundreds of students on an informal basis. Each of those experiences has reinforced for me what I had previously known about Great Neck.
 

Editorial: How About Those Muni-Meters?

Written by Carol Frank Friday, 24 July 2009 00:00
We were prepared to grouse about the Plaza’s muni-meters…before they were installed.

But now that they’re in, we love them.

First, they are a big improvement over those muni-meters where you have to schlep back and forth to put a ticket in your car window…especially in the wintertime when the pavement is icy.

Moving Forward

The stalemate in the New York State Senate has ended. With the gridlock over, more than 130 important bills that affected localities across this state and allowed them to hold the line on property taxes have been passed.

This included legislation that was critical to Nassau’s fiscal health, and the extension of the Power for Jobs program, which is responsible for more than 240,000 jobs across New York State.

 

Editorial: Word Limit for Letters to the Editor!

Written by Wendy Karpel Kreitzman Friday, 17 July 2009 00:00
Often we find ourselves in a real quandary —- we receive an excellent letter to the editor, sometimes at the last minute, and it’s way, way too long. What do we do? Occasionally we have permitted very long letters, particularly if it is one of the first letters regarding a very timely and possibly a highly controversial issue. And then the problems begin. We receive lengthy responses and many more very long letters. Do we turn them down? Do we break our own rules and let them go in?
 

Great Neck Notebook: July 19, 2009

Only a Dollar

It was an average, ordinary Monday morning. On my way to work, I stopped at the post office and mailed some letters. Then I stopped at Deli on the Green to buy a bagel with butter. While I was waiting for the bagel, I picked up a copy of the Times. When the deli clerk asked me if I wanted anything else, I showed him the paper, which was tucked under my arm.

He rang up the sale: $1.25 for the bagel and 50 cents for the paper. I handed him two dollars and he gave me back a quarter. I hadn’t even made it to the front door of the deli, when I realized a mistake had been made. The deli sells the Post, Newsday, and the Times. Unlike the other two, which sell for 50 cents, the Times cost $1.50. The clerk had undercharged me by a dollar.

 

Editorial: A Hearty Welcome to Tom Dolan!

Friday, 10 July 2009 00:00
The Great Neck Public Schools and the entire Great Neck community offer a heartfelt and sincere welcome to our new superintendent of schools, Tom Dolan. Welcome, welcome Dr. Dolan!

Just sworn in to his new position last week, Dr. Dolan is already an integral part of the school community, having regularly attended Board of Education meetings since his appointment several months ago. And we just know that soon he will be a familiar figure around town, too.

The Senate Stalemate

It is my hope that by the time that you read this, the stalemate that has gripped the Senate will be over.
Over the last few weeks, the residents of the State of New York have unfortunately seen government at its worst. On June 8, the Senate Republicans, with their new leader, Pedro Espada of the Bronx, derailed the end of the legislative session with a poorly thought out coup attempt.
