Hundreds, left in darkness, demand answers outside company’s headquarters

With snow still on the ground and some Hicksville homes without heat and electricity, LIPA wasn’t given a warm welcome from residents outside the company’s headquarters at 175 Old Country Road on Saturday, Nov. 10.

A lively protest from several hundred local residents featured signs, chanting and an overwhelming sense of dismay following two storms and nearly as many weeks without power.

 

Sandy Brings Devastation To LI

Written by Ronald Scaglia Friday, 09 November 2012 00:00

Hurricane destroyed homes, power outages and long gas lines are left in the storm’s wake

The scene of devastation is similar throughout Long Island, particularly in waterfront areas on the north and south shores, following Hurricane Sandy. Homeowners desperately tried to remove the water that had flooded homes by opening doors, windows, garage doors, and by using generator-powered vacuums, designed to capture water. Along curbsides, carpets, furniture, clothing, toys, and other treasured belongings were left for sanitation crews to take away. Literally, lifetimes of memories had been washed away.

The storm made landfall on Monday, Oct. 29. Although it should have been a regular business day, anyone making his or her way through the heavy wind and rain realized that it was anything but an ordinary Monday. Businesses that are usually jammed with midday lunch crowds were vacant. Long Island Rail Road stations, were deserted, with not a train or a commuter to be found. Schools were closed and would remain shut for more than a week. Businesses that remained opened were hard to find, although there were a few proprietors who did brave the massive storm.

Hicksville’s Magro family fundraises in memory of son, Michael

Last month, the Hicksville-based Michael Magro Foundation held their 8th Annual Evening of Tasting and Giving – a fundraiser celebrating a lifetime worth of friendship, togetherness and support from local residents.

When one first enters the expansive and breathtaking grounds upon which this event took place, The Woodlands, in beautiful Woodbury, one is met with a vision of an old mansion, that turn of the century feel of celebration. That wonderful feeling of knowing, combined with a sense of great anticipation, provided a feeling that suggested all in attendance were a part of something special.

TOB Raises Fees, Not Taxes, In 2012 Budget

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi Friday, 26 October 2012 00:00
The Town of Oyster Bay residents will not have to pay any increase in taxes but they will be paying more in what Town Supervisor John Venditto characterized as “luxury item” fees. That means an increase in such fees as parking, marina costs and possibly golf fees. As we went to press there was no specific information available. There was no increase in taxes in 2011, there was a 3.5 percent increase in taxes for 2012 and there will be no increase in taxes for 2013.

The Town of Oyster Bay held its 2013 budget hearings on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Supervisor John Venditto said, “Since 2008 [as the national economy was taking a hit] I have been dreading this day.” He has been working at least since May to solve his insolvency problems when he declared he needed to cut 220 workers from the payroll. With a $13 million shortfall something had to be done. He said while other municipalities were declaring bankruptcy they were coping.

Sparks Fly In The Debate Arena

Town hall format and Obama’s performance finds president rebounding in the polls

On Tuesday, Oct. 16, Hofstra University was the site for the second of three debates between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. Hofstra had also hosted a debate between then-Democratic nominee Obama and GOP nominee Sen. John McCain back in 2008, making the school just the second university to host consecutive presidential debates. (St. Louis’ Washington University was the other.)

With Romney scoring what many considered an upset victory over Obama’s decidedly lackluster performance in the first debate, this follow-up was going to be a “deal maker or breaker in this campaign,” according to political pundit Chris Matthews, who spoke at Hofstra the prior week. Shortly after moderator Candy Crowley took the stage at 9 p.m., it was clear both candidates were prepared to come out swinging, making for a lively hour and a half that found roughly 65 million viewers tuning in to the town hall-style debate, according to the Nielsen Ratings.

Mangano: Hicksville home being

built for one of our nation’s heroes

Building on his recent success of creating new affordable homes for veterans in Mitchel Field, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano is inviting veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts to enter a lottery to win a brand-new house built by Homes for Homecoming Heroes, Inc. on a site in Hicksville that was donated by Nassau County. Homes for OurHomecoming Heroes, a not-for-profit corporation, will select a qualified veteran who is in need of housing and construct a residence on the property to suit the specific needs of the selected veteran. The veteran will then be able to purchase the new home at the cost of construction.
Mangano stated, “My administration is determined to provide affordable housing for our nation’s heroes and their families’ right here in Nassau County. I am thrilled that Nassau County was able to partner with Homes for Homecoming Heroes to provide a veteran with this wonderful opportunity to own a home in Nassau.”
