After a very long winter, spring time is finally here and it’s time to get all of your gardening needs in. Whether you’re looking for gardening supplies, annual perennials or shrubs or bird food and pool cleaning agents, Garden World in Franklin Square is your place.

 

“I go there for everything,” says Mary Channix of New Hyde Park. “It has all my gardening needs and is just a short drive away. I’ll be going next week to get more stuff to have the garden ready to go.”

 

In business since 1959, Garden World offers everything the average gardener needs to keep their lawn green and their outside property looking clean.

The Village of New Hyde Park adopted its 2014-15 operating budget Tuesday, April 14. The new budget totals $6 million. Last year’s budget topped off at $5.8 million. 

 

The adopted budget holds a final tax levy of $4.135 million, a 1.65 percent increase from last year. It’s estimated that residents will need to pay an additional $18 per year in village taxes.


Sports

Sewanhaka High School’s girls lacrosse coach Erica Brennan knows something good is going to happen when attacker Skylar Shimansky is sprinting down the field. 

 

“When she’s on the move, shooting, 90 percent of the time, it’s going in,” Brennan said. 

 

The goals have been going in for Shimansky on a consistent basis so far this season. She leads the Indians with eight goals and has scored in each of the team’s first six games.

For Ariana Bruschi, winning the school award in the national Wendy’s High School Heisman competition is about hard work. The New Hyde Park Memorial High School senior is a standout Gladiators field hockey, lacrosse player and an avid volunteer.

 

“It really helped me and showed how hard work paid off,” she said. “I thank all my coaches and my guidance counselor Mary Beth Healy. They really helped me.”

 

The Wendy’s competition measured three parts: academics, athletics and leadership. These categories were strengths for Bruschi.
