Kabul Grill owner Noor Shair is a Plainview resident who originally hails from Afghanistan, and surprisingly had no aspirations of entering the restaurant field in his younger years.

Written by Chris Boyle, hicksville@antonnews.com Wednesday, 21 May 2014 00:00

Memorial Day is a vital national American holiday; the one day of the year when we as citizens take pause and honor those who have fallen while defending the principles and freedoms that have come to define us as a people.

It is on that day that many veterans of the military reflect upon both their great service to this country, as well as the ultimate sacrifices of the friends and loved ones who live on in their memories and hearts; this is something that members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 3211 of Hicksville each remember in their own individual ways.

Relocating to a new country can be intimidating enough, but taking on a brand-new occupation once you get there as well? It’s enough to make someone think twice about the whole thing and just stay put.

But not Kumar K. Chhetri, owner of New Chilli and Curry restaurant located at 106 Woodbury Road in Hicksville. Originally from Nepal, where he worked in the antique jewelry trade, Chhetri moved to the United States nearly 20 years ago for a change of scenery as well as a desire to try out a new career.

 

Library Budget Sees Increase

The Hicksville Public Library’s budget for 2014-15 includes a 4.04% increase, and while this does pierce the NYS property tax cap, Hicksville residents will only see an average increase of $12.87 per household. With the 2014-15 budget, the average homeowner will pay approximately $257.01 a year in library tax.

The library is looking to get $4.3 million of their $5.2 million budget from real estate taxes (the rest comes from fines and fees, PILOTS, the appropriated fund balance, and other revenues). The most significant line item increase in the library’s budget was for capital improvements, which went from $30,000 in the 2013-14 budget to $320,000 in the 2014-15 proposed budget. Library director Elizabeth Goldfrank attributes this huge change to some much needed repairs in the building.

Spring time has finally arrived and that means more people are outside looking for a nice spot to stop and smell the flowers. And thanks to one local boy's efforts, the Trinity Lutheran Community Garden might be the perfect place to sit and relax. This past Saturday, Boy Scout Troop 291 member Thomas Miller helped install two new benches and shrubbery as part of his Eagle Scout project. Miller was helped by members of his troop to help beautify the area.

“The Eagle Scout project is a mandatory project that is meant to establish long lasting benefit in the community,” said Miller, who is an eight year member of the Boy Scouts. “It is essential to do the project in order to attain Eagle Scout status, which is the highest ranking in the Boy Scouts.”

Donate A Bike, Change A Life

Written by Betsy Abraham, babraham@antonnews.com Wednesday, 07 May 2014 00:00

Your old bike may be doing nothing more than taking up space in your garage, but for people in Africa, a bicycle could be the key to literacy, a higher income, and overall better life. Westbury resident and Wheatley School science teacher Steven Finkelstein saw this first hand when he went to Africa in 1997. An avid bicyclist, seeing how people’s lives were changed with this simple vehicle fueled a passion in him to help bring cycles to Africa.

In 1999, he saw that dream realized as he helped organize the Afri-Bike Coalition at Wheatley. Together with the nonprofit organization the Village Bicycle Project, the group held their first bike collection in 1999, and in 2000, sent 200 bikes to Ghana. Since, then they’ve sent a total of 2,500 bikes to Ghana.

Senator Jack Martins said that KidPix offers a vital conduit of information between parents and authorities in the event a child is hurt or goes missing. He said in such instances having access to information can save lives.
