John Weickert, of New Hyde Park, recently received the highest rank in scouting, his Eagle Wings. This prestigious rank is accomplished only after many years in scouting and many years of work and dedication that eventually achieves this accomplishment.
New Hyde Park Village Trustee Donald Barbieri announced at the last village meeting that Nassau County Legislator Nicolello was able to allocate $100,000 for the Jericho Turnpike restoration. Barbieri also pointed out that both New York State Senator Michael Balboni and Assemblywoman Maureen O'Connell have also been responsible for allocating many dollars to the village for this monumental project. He added, "For this we will all be eternally grateful. Each one of our legislative representatives has been so very supportive to the village in this effort."
