I have had the great privilege of serving the past 11 years as a trustee of the Village of East Hills, the beautiful community in which I grew up and where my wife and I are now raising our own family.
So it is with some sadness, but also great anticipation, that I say goodbye to the village government of East Hills and especially my mentor, Mayor Michael Koblenz, as I assume the responsibilities of North Hempstead Town Councilperson for District 2.
I would first like to tell the people of District 2 how thrilled I am to be serving you as your new Town Council representative. On Jan. 28, I was appointed by Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the town board to fill the seat of former Councilman Tom Dwyer, who represented District 2 with distinction for the past 12 years. I was honored to be chosen for this appointment following a lengthy screening process and I would like to particularly thank Supervisor Bosworth for her support and for recognizing my enthusiasm and commitment to serving the people of our town.
As an East Hills trustee, I represented over 7,000 residents and had the pleasure of working on behalf of a truly exceptional community that I cherish. As councilman, I will have the opportunity to use the experience I have gained in my village for the benefit of all the residents of District 2.
As I officially take office, I invite all residents of District 2 to contact my office at any time with your questions, concerns and ideas. I look forward to serving you.
Peter J. Zuckerman
District 2 North Hempstead Town Councilman

Local school districts are reaffirming student hygiene standards in the wake of the non-polio enterovirus (EV- D68) that’s been found in the United States. A strain of the enterovirus was found in Southampton’s middle and high schools, but officials say it was not the virus that has caused the national EV-D68 outbreak.
The disease disproportionately affects infants, children and adolescents who lack immunity, according to the Center for Disease Control. School districts have been notified to follow New York State Health Department guidelines to combat possible infections.

Sewanhaka Indians Head football coach George Kasimatis told his team to expect a dogfight in this weeks game against the New Hyde Park Gladiators, and he was right after its 35-21 victory last week.
“All the kids know each other really well, it’s always competitive when we play each other,” he said.

The Sewanhaka Indians relied heavily on its offense in the first two victories and head coach George Kasimatis relies on one player to set the tone for his group; senior, running back Brenton Mighty.
Mighty is versatile as a running back, as he possesses the ability to run hard between the tackles, lower his shoulder and run into the defender, or run to the outside and break one deep. He also has good hands and is utilized by quarterback Elijah Tracey, as a receiver out of the backfield.
“He makes such a difference in the run game,” said Kasimatis. “Teams have to respect that and it opens up the pass and the possibility for a lot of play action passes.”
