Editorial: Happy Fourth

Written by Cory Twibell: Friday, 29 June 2012 00:00

Independence Day is the quintessential American holiday: baseball, barbecues and fireworks. George Washington even celebrated the day in 1778 by doubling the rations of rum for his troops.

It wasn’t until 1938 that the U.S. Congress marked the day as a paid federal holiday – and although some of us wish Independence Day fell on a Monday or a Friday this year, the holiday is a symbol of how fortunate we are to live and work here in the United States.


Letter: Red Cross: Be Prepared For Hurricane Season

Friday, 22 June 2012 00:00

While experts have predicted a near-normal hurricane season, it’s important to remember that normal means the possibility of 9-15 named storms. After Hurricane Irene last August, I don’t need to remind Long Islanders that it only takes one storm to force evacuations, damage homes, and leave nearly a half-million homes in the dark—many for days. And to think, Irene was downgraded to tropical storm when it made landfall here.

In preparation for Irene, the American Red Cross opened shelters from North Carolina to Maine—including 31 of them on Long Island. When the storm passed, Red Cross volunteers provided food, water and other emergency supplies to those affected.


Editorial: Father’s Day, Every Day

There’s a fine line between spending time and spending quality time.

I once played golf with a stranger who told me, almost implored me, to play golf as often as I can with my dad, because you never know when he won’t be able to join you on the course anymore.


June 16: Annual Marine Corps Sergeant Majors Cup Competition

Friday, 15 June 2012 00:00

Marines and potential recruits, “poolees,” will fill Zach’s Bay at Jones Beach on Saturday, June 16 for the annual Sergeant Majors Cup competition. More than 600 marines, from more than 14 New York State recruiting stations, will participate in the competition held each year for all Marine Corps candidates waiting to deploy to boot camp.

The event is a physical competition, giving candidates a preview of some of the grueling demands of boot camp once they arrive at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in Parris Island, SC.


Editorial: No-han

Written by Cory Twibell: Friday, 08 June 2012 00:00

After not attending a single Mets game all last season, I, an admittedly casual Mets fan, was lucky to be at Citi Field for Johan Santana’s no-hitter on June 1.

For me, in this particular order, it’s Rangers, Jets and then Mets. I’m a closet Islanders fan but the pastime factor far outweighs that of any allegiance there.


Letter: Roman Catholic Church Committed To Preserving First Amendment Rights

Friday, 08 June 2012 00:00

At the end of May, many Roman Catholic Dioceses, Rockville Centre included, filed a lawsuit against the government. Some institutions, such as Planned Parenthood, would like the public to believe that this was an attempt by the church to prevent women access to preventative health services.


Editorial: 2015

Written by Cory Twibell: Friday, 01 June 2012 00:00
I can’t help but think of the void that will be left in Nassau County if the Islanders end up somewhere else.

The past few months of playoff hockey have been tremendous for Rangers fans like myself and hockey fans around the world. The thought of a deep Islanders playoff run, as distant a possibility as it may seem considering the past few seasons, is even more fleeting considering we may not even have a chance to witness it after 2015.


Letter: Planned Parenthood Committed To Providing Women’s Health Services

Friday, 01 June 2012 00:00

Doctors and public health experts agree that birth control is a basic and essential component of women’s preventive health care. Following the medical community’s recommendation, the Obama administration mandated that employers provide health insurance, including birth control, for its employees. An exception for religious organizations was made, exempting them from providing birth control coverage, subsidizing the cost of birth control, or referring for birth control. Employees of these organizations were ensured access by requiring the employer’s health plan to provide birth control coverage directly to these women free-of-charge.


Editorial: More Than Just Memorial Day

Friday, 25 May 2012 00:00

What first comes to mind when I look at the calendar and see Memorial Day highlighted is, “Yes! A day off from work!”

Yet, I need to remind myself that it’s so much more than that.

We have the opportunity to work because of the millions of servicemen and women who have worked – and died – for the preservation of our free society.


Letter: Award-Deserving ‘Just One Pill’ Series Helps Open Dialogue

Friday, 25 May 2012 00:00

I want to commend Ronald Scaglia on an excellently written and well researched three-part series “Just One Pill” that appeared in three consecutive editions through May in the Anton Community Newspapers and is available online. As a former journalist and editor, I consider the series representative of excellent journalism and a contender for award recognition.
