Key to Surviving, Thriving

Peter Cornelis is a man on a mission.

Driven by his passion to educate, comfort and serve both people who have suffered strokes and people who care for them, this six-time stroke survivor is working tirelessly to take his message to the masses. Hope for Stroke, a non-profit he co-founded with Joseph Foley, also a stroke survivor, recently held a seminar at the Hicksville Community Center that brought together experts in the field, caregivers and stroke survivors. The group’s message of positive energy and optimism filled the room, despite grim statistics that stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability, according to the National Stroke Association.

Believe: A Lesson Learned From Amy Palmeiro-Winters

Written by Roberta Lane Friday, 17 December 2010 00:00

Amy Palmeiro-Winters is a runner; she will not stand still for anything. Eagerly making a mark in the sport, it seemed that her running career would be cut short when, at 21, a motorcycle accident claimed half of her left leg.

In spite of expert opinion, she began running again after 27 surgeries over a three-year span. The surgery attempts ended with the decision to amputate from just below the knee. She has since experienced tremendous success. The sheer fact that Palmeiro-Winters kept motivated through so much adversity is something few can do.

She returned to running, but ultimately with a prosthetic leg, setting new world records for her running class, and competed successfully in myriad races, including ultra marathons (50k, 50-mile, 100k, 100 mile and 24 hour races), triathlons including the Ironman, half-Ironman, and Olympic distance races. She says that putting her prosthetic in place every day is like putting on a pair of eyeglasses.

Nassau County Planning Commission Holds Public Hearing on Master Plan

Taubman Corporation Asks for Recognition for

Syosset Mall Project, Commissioners Agree

With the county’s fiscal woes dominating the headlines, it’s hard to be optimistic about Nassau’s future. However, the tone of the Nassau County Planning Commission Public Hearing on the draft of the 2010 Master Plan, which makes policy recommendations to attempt to guide the county towards economic growth and prosperity, was hopeful. In fact, most of the speakers at the Thursday, Nov. 18 hearing spoke in praise of the plan, with few, if any, caveats.

While ostensibly a five-year plan, the Master Plan offers suggestions for the county through 2030. One theme that runs through the entire plan is Nassau’s great need for affordable housing; in the five-chapter plan, only chapter 4, Infrastructure, does not prominently feature the need for the creation of new residential units to suit the paradigm shift in Nassau’s population. The single family home, the dominant form of housing in the county that was once desired for traditional nuclear families with 2.3 kids and a dog, is now too big and too expensive for seniors, a large and growing portion of Nassau’s population. It’s also not feasible for young people, who currently struggle to find affordable rentals- if they stay in the county at all.


FFLI Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Hosts Party and Fundraiser in Hicksville

Written by Katherine M. Trager Friday, 26 November 2010 00:00

This past year has been a whirlwind of activity and exciting events for Forgotten Friends of Long Island (FFLI) Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation. With continued support from its donors, members and volunteers, FFLI has been able to expand its mission of rescuing the most disadvantaged animals from local municipal shelters.

Dogs and cats suffering from illness, injury, disability, abuse or neglect, or who continue to be overlooked and are consequently scheduled for euthanasia, are the animals of greatest concern to FFLI. Through the efforts of FFLI and its supporters, the animals in its care receive necessary medical treatment and therapy as well as the love and dignity that many of them have never before experienced. Through its careful and conscientious adoption screening process, FFLI is dedicated to matching each animal to its ideal “forever home.”

Hicksville Veterans Day Observance 

Friday, 19 November 2010 00:00

On Thursday, Nov. 11, the Annual Hicksville Veteran’s Day Ceremony was held at the Middle School Veterans Memorial Park. The Veterans Day Committee of the United Veterans of Hicksville planned the ceremony. The ceremony was hosted by Veterans of Foreign Wars William M. Gouse, Jr. Post 3211, whose commander, William G. Walden was the Master of Ceremonies and his leadership guided the Veterans Day Committee.

Veteran’s Day is a national holiday honoring our military veterans. Formerly it was known as Armistice Day to commemorate the armistice ending the First World War on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month in 1919, which was proclaimed Armistice Day by then President Woodrow Wilson. In 1954 President Dwight D. Eisenhower and the 82nd Congress changed the wording from Armistice Day to Veterans Day at the urging of veterans organizations.
