Residents James Reddan and Jennifer Kerrane will be competing for the seat held by New Hyde Park Garden City Park school board Vice President Joseph Bongiorno, who will not be seeking re-election on Tuesday, May 21.
Juleigh Chin, an active member of the community, will be running unopposed for trustee on the Herricks School District Board of Education.
“I feel that it is not only my calling, but my personal and civic responsibility to serve the public,” Chin says. Election Day is May 21.
Members of Sewanhaka High School’s Key Club and Green Club assisted residents of the Village of New Hyde Park with its Community Clean-Up Day. The students removed litter, pulled weeds, planted a few shrubs and deposited topsoil in the area of the New Hyde Park train station.
Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice announced on April 30 that Pamela Efraimov, 39, of New Hyde Park was charged with stealing more than $200,000 from her employer and an autism awareness foundation run by her boss’ wife.
Efraimov was arrested by DA investigators and charged with second-degree grand larceny, criminal possession of a forged instrument and first-degree falsifying business records. She faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
Rice said that from 2005 to 2012, Efraimov was employed as the personal assistant and bookkeeper to the president/owner of Katherine Bishop, Ltd., a woman’s apparel wholesaler. After her boss’s death in June 2010, his widow kept Efraimov on so she could close the books on the business.
It was the first day of school in 1981 and Dave Creo, a new 10th grade transfer student, boarded the bus. By chance, he took a seat next to Paul Moncada. “I got on the bus,” says Creo, “and sat down next to my future best friend, roommate, business partner, best man at my wedding, and godfather to my first child.” Moncada adds that Creo was best man at his wedding and godfather to his first child.
Creo and Moncada are the founders and co-owners of New York Ravioli and Pasta based in New Hyde Park, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
When the New Hyde Park 8K kicks off at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 2, it will be the 36th time the starter’s gun has gone off for this annual event. And, as in the past, New Hyde Park Runners race organizers will take money raised and donate it to a local charity. For the third year running, the lucky organization will be Nassau County Fire Fighters Operation Wounded Warrior. It’s a cause that club president Harold Axelrod and his members have grown very close to, having raised more than $5,000 the past two years.
The Water Authority of Western Nassau County expects to move into its new home in New Hyde Park next month, according to officials. The authority has called South Tyson Avenue in Floral Park home since 1996.
The water authority, formerly Jamaica Water, floated two bonds to help build a central garage and the main headquarters, according to Water authority Chairman John E. Ryan. Western Nassau was looking in Floral Park, Elmont and in the surrounding areas of the district to find a new home. It came down to cash.
“The owners of the properties were asking for a lot of money,” he said. “It was not doable. [New Hyde Park] was a good location at a good price.”
It is not likely that most people celebrate a milestone birthday by surrounding themselves with nearly 200 of their closest friends and family members, are presented with the key to the county, and make a generous donation to a friend’s charity. This is exactly what Umberto Corteo, owner of the Original Umberto’s of New Hyde Park, did on April 16 to celebrate his 70th birthday.
Before presenting the Key To Nassau County, County Executive Ed Mangano shared a brief story about Corteo’s migration to America, “He [Corteo] represents the American dream; he came here with so very little.”
Born outside of Naples, Italy, Corteo worked his father’s farm to help feed their family of 13; he is the seventh of 11 children.
Public service has always been high on the list of priorities for sisters Marianna Wohlgemuth and Marietta DiCamillo. Over the past two decades, the two women, who are informally known as the M&M Sisters, have made a point of ensuring that the people of New Hyde Park have been getting the most bang for their tax dollars. The creation of the Water Authority of Nassau County and the restoration of the Parkville Library are just two of the many feats the two siblings have accomplished since they started taking on taxpayer-related economic malfeasance since 1990. Their activism found them being recently honored by Legislator Judi Bosworth at the 15th Annual Trailblazers Awards Ceremony that was held at the chambers of the Nassau County Legislature.
After hitting a snag, New Hyde Park’s Operation Main Street, aimed at improving the village’s business district, is gaining traction. The Village of New Hyde Park sent final paperwork to the New York Department of Transportation on Sunday, June 21.
Trustee Donald Barbieri estimated a June start date, with a projected four-month construction run time. Barbieri has spearheaded the project from the start.
