Friday, 21 October 2011 00:00

For a fifth year, the American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes Inc. are teaming up to deliver holiday cheer and greetings to service members, their families and veterans throughout the holiday season.

The Holiday Mail for Heroes program provides Americans the opportunity to send holiday greetings to our men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, any of whom will be far from home over the holidays and to our nation’s veterans and their families.

 

Letter: Citizen’s Review Board

Friday, 07 October 2011 00:00

I read with interest the recent article in the Hicksville Illustrated News on the State Senate holding hearings on LIPA’s response to hurricane Irene. I would like to know when Long Island residents can hold their own hearings on the performance of our elected state officials and ask for accountability in regards to the lack of services that we pay for.

Good things have been brewing for the Foundation over the past few months!

To start off, we are proud to announce that The Sarah Grace Foundation was chosen as the 2011 Non-Profit of the Year by the Hicksville Chamber of Commerce! The Foundation’s efforts in helping children with cancer and their families were recognized at a dinner held on Sept. 20.

 

Poll: Don’t Allow Teachers to Grade Their Students’ Exams

Friday, 23 September 2011 00:00

(Submitted by the New York State School Boards Association)

A large majority of school board members–70 percent–responding to a NYSSBA poll believe that teachers should not grade their own students’ state assessments, but are more evenly divided on other test security issues.

Earlier this week, the state Board of Regents approved a series of measures to combat possible cheating on state exams. The board is set to consider additional proposals next month, including: barring teachers from grading or proctoring their own students’ tests; developing a centralized statewide scanning system; and distributive scoring, in which answer sheets are scanned and uploaded onto computers, and graded by other educators across the state.

 

Letter: ‘Hicksville Not a Beautiful Hamlet Anymore’

Friday, 16 September 2011 00:00

(Editor’s Note: The following letter is a response to a recent submission from Owen Magee, which cited lack of proper maintenance along Route 106/107 in addition to surrounding areas in Hicksville.)  

My wife and I are 46-year residents of what was a beautiful hamlet. It is no longer!

Mr. Magee talks about downtown and Route 106/107. How about the rest of Hicksville? Nassau County, the Town of Oyster Bay and the state – in addition to the residents – are all at fault because nobody cares!

 

Letter: ‘September 11 and The Common Good’

Friday, 16 September 2011 00:00

As we pass the 10th anniversary of 9/11, I can’t help recalling how long it took to pass the Zadroga Bill for first responders, which only now extends coverage to include cancer. Blame our politicians, but except that we did not hold their feet to the fire. But why should we? Perish the thought that we should pay to make things right.

 

Letter: Response to Assemblyman Montesano’s Letter

Friday, 09 September 2011 00:00

In response to the Assemblyman Michael Montesano’s (15th District) letter to the editor critical of LIPA hurricane response, please be reminded of the complaints on LIPA’s response to a previous hurricane that was predicted to slam into us, but at the last minute went out to sea.

Doomsday forecasters had everyone boarding up, buying generators (I did both), so LIPA was prepared for the worst. It cost big bucks and the leadership took a big hit along with the ratepayers. Had it hit us as predicted, they would have been heroes.

 

Letter: ‘Hurricane Irene Brings Out the Best in Leadership, Worst in LIPA’

Friday, 02 September 2011 00:00
In the wake of Hurricane Irene’s path of disaster, Long Islanders have risen to the occasion to stand together, help each other out, and represent the true community spirit of our region. As a local resident, it is truly inspiring to see neighbors stand together to assist one another. I am honored to represent such a strong community.

I applaud the efforts of Governor Cuomo, Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano, Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy and other local leaders who were out here quickly and efficiently to protect lives, property and restore our communities. They defined true leadership in the wake of Hurricane Irene for those in the Long Island community. I am honored to work with these people and I am proud to watch as everyone comes together to rebuild after the storm.

 

Over 60…And Getting Younger: August 25, 2011

Written by Stanley Greenberg Friday, 26 August 2011 00:00

My Cousin Hymie

My cousin Hymie died three weeks ago, at the age of 90. He was one of my favorite cousins. His given name was Herman.

Herman is not a great name in my opinion, but Hymie was a great guy. He always had a joke on his lips or a puzzle, or funny saying. He was never negative about anything.
