As a long time resident of Hicksville, I find it hard to believe that our elected officials would vote to split Hicksville up into three county legislative districts. It seems now that our elected officials are trying to destroy our town. The voice of Hicksville has now been muted by this vote.
I voted for our elected official because I thought that they would have the best interest of the people and the town of Hicksville in mind when they voted. I can only surmise that other interests where more important than Hicksville and the people who elected you.
The people of Hicksville need to start questioning our officials to see where they stand. I sent an email to them in June 2011 about the vote to use money that was allocated from the federal government for Hicksville but was used for Glen Head. (Newsday “Hicksville street revamp funds shift to Glen Head,” June 7, 2011).
I was told Hicksville was not ready for it. They told me that they would be allocating money for downtown Hicksville soon. I am still waiting but now to whom will I have to talk to being that that part of Hicksville is now not part of my Hicksville?

Typically Asian cuisine is not associated with dessert and pastries so I was delighted by the deliciousness of the breads and pastries I found at Canaan Bakery and Cafe in Hicksville. Savory and sweet buns, Danish and Korean pastries, cookies and very good coffee can be enjoyed at the café, which is located at the entrance of the H&Y Supermarket. This is the Nassau County outpost of the four Canaan bakeries—the other three are in Flushing.

Hicksville’s Matthew Sloan faced off against the best young soccer players in the world recently, as he traveled to Turkey with the Olympic Developmental Program.
The Hicksville High School freshman started playing soccer when he was three and advanced his game to a more competitive level at age 10, when he was chosen to play with the Long Island Rough Riders. Sloan plays other sports and is on the boys basketball team, but says that he loves soccer because of the fast pace, and because of the coaches who have had a great influence on him throughout his training.

The Hicksville Middle School Kickline claimed victory again recently at the Scholastic Kickline Competition held at Nassau Community College. The team competed against top kickline teams and placed second in hip hop, third in pom and third in kick. County legislator Rose Walker, an honorary Hicksville Kickline team member, supported the girls at the competition. The middle school kickline team’s season began in September, and includes dancing at football and basketball games and competing in three tourneys. Their last competition of the season was March 2 at Nassau Community College. The girls are coached by Hicksville kickline alumni Katelyn Heuser, Victoria Shannon and Laura Bueche.
