The Herricks Homecoming celebration was held on the girls soccer field this year and it was a fun-filled event with games, music and even a dunking station where some poor girl was dunked every time the mark was hit.
High School Athletic Director Jim Petricca ran the entire day that started out with the various classes participating in relay races including egg on a spoon, potato sack and jump rope. All the participants had a marvelous time.
Due to the snow, wind and heavy rains, the Town of North Hempstead Spooky Walk, always a popular event at Clark Gardens, had to be cancelled Saturday night. The Not So Spooky Walk, the next day, was a huge success and that was followed up on Sunday night by the re-scheduled Spooky Walk.
The New Hyde Park Memorial Homecoming celebration could not have fallen on a more beautiful day. It was sunny with a nice breeze wafting though all the events of the day.
The day started off with a spectacular parade led by New Hyde Park Memorial banner carried by the drum majorettes and followed closely by the New Hyde Park Memorial Band, all donned in their marvelous uniforms complete with their wonderful black hats topped with black plumes, gently blowing in the breeze.
In the area of “good and open government” how can the Town of North Hempstead keep its constituents better informed of pending Town Board actions?
Town government sometimes publishes short and vague, almost cryptic, synopses of its Town Board Agenda and public hearing items which hinders constituent involvement. What are your thoughts about increasing the level of detail made public, and made public in a more timely way?
At the very start of the extremely long Herricks Board meeting that extended past midnight, the board named Grant Seltzer Richman and Sheryl Bohan as its student representatives and Dana Curtin and Samuel Oh as alternatives.
The board also announced that they have had very productive meetings with the Herricks Teacher’s Association and those meetings are ongoing. Board president Christine Turner added, “Naturally, we can’t discuss those meetings as yet, but we are happy that they will continue.”
How should the county solve its budget crisis? Should the police unions and the Civil Service Employees Association make contract concessions? Should county services be cut? Should there be a tax increase? Should the County eliminate its guarantee to refund other taxing districts’ (including school districts) share of property taxes paid in error due to County assessment errors?
The New Hyde Park/Garden City School Board meeting, scheduled for 8 p.m., did not start until almost 8:30 p.m. due to the board’s late arrival. They apologized profusely due to the executive session that they would have to resume after the meeting ended.
Because of the nature of the executive session, Superintendent Robert Katulak said he was not able to discuss the topic of the session with the public.

Prior to the start of the last Williston Park Village Board meeting, the mayor and trustees honored the 11-12-year-old girls baseball team for its second consecutive season winning of the District Championship for their age category.
The girls presented Williston Park Mayor Paul Ehrbar with a signed ball and with a trophy to put in the village trophy case. All of the girls were present with village trustee Kevin Rynne, who is one of the coaches, along with Dennis Gannon and Steve Gilhooly.
The candidate submitted the following statement.
“Jon Kaiman brings to his office as Town of North Hempstead Supervisor a distinguished record of public and private sector accomplishments. His four terms in office have been underscored by his continuation of the town’s tradition of sound finances and good government.
“Under Kaiman’s administration, CNN Money Magazine ranked the town one of the “Best 100 Places to Live in America.” In addition, CNN rated North Hempstead as the Second Best Place to Live for a healthy retirement in the United States of America. Since taking office on Jan. 1, 2004, Kaiman has spearheaded a series of bold initiatives to promote accountability and transparency, to better the quality of life for seniors, to maintain sound finances and to protect the town’s environment.
