Following her uncontested election last month, trustee Donna Squicciarino was officially sworn in by Mayor Robert Lofaro for a one year term on Monday, April 7.
Squicciarino is the second woman in New Hyde Park’s 86-year history to serve as trustee. Florence Lisanti was the first woman to serve on the board, whose term expired in 2001.
“I think it’s great,” said Squicciarino. “We needed a woman at the table with a different point of view. We have a lot of different perspectives that guide the village in the right direction.”

At the April 3 meeting of the Herricks Board of Education, it was revealed that New York State’s recently passed budget has allotted a larger-than-anticipated amount of aid for schools; this has resulted in an additional $360,000 for the district to use for its 2014-2015 budget.
According to Board of Education President James Gounaris, the 2014-2015 Herricks budget was already adopted, on March 20; after the surprise boost in state aid, the budget was adjusted and re-adopted at the April 3 meeting, with the additional funds allocated toward restoring some budgetary cuts made to the district in recent years.

“With an incredible starting five, and depth throughout the roster, the team showed that with talent and determination, they can do anything,” Leighton said. “Not only were they an unbelievable team to coach, they were sportswomen on the court, and gave one hundred percent effort in their games, and practices.”

Most tourists travel to see the sights and eat the food. But New Hyde Park resident Dr. Peter Douris recently flew to South Korea for a different reason entirely. He spent a week in the southern mountains testing for 5th degree black belt in the Korean martial art of Soo Bahk Do.
Douris was part of a group from Kwon’s Karate studio in Manhasset, where they’ve all trained for many years with their instructor, Master H.Y. Kwon, a ninth level black belt.
In Korea, their days began at 6 a.m. and continued until very late.
