All Bus Service May Be Eliminated in Nassau

County in Lurch as

MTA Talks Pulling the Plug

The roughly 102,000 Nassau County residents who rely on the bus daily to get where they need to be may have a serious problem if the MTA goes ahead with a proposal to eliminate the $40 million it has been funding annually to keep Long Island Bus’s service going. As the transit authority struggles to fix its own huge deficit, it has ended up at odds with Nassau County, threatening cuts for which there would be no easy solution. The county is either facing the elimination of all service or has to explore a solution such as the privatization of the system.

Scaled Back Plan Looks to Keep
‘Mini-City’ Off Long Island

Lighthouses are commonly viewed as the marker for seamen to find the coast during storms, add a bit of personality to an island and to serve as a beacon of a beach.

In the case of the Lighthouse Project that has been tossed back and forth between the Town of Hempstead, Nassau County and New York Islanders owner and Lighthouse Group head Charles Wang, the storm is too strong and the beacon’s light is dwindling. No, the project’s production is not dwindling, however it’s getting a considerable makeover.

I know this is a busy time, but just keep her in your thoughts.”


Town Retreats and Oasis Camp Moves to Chaminade

Written by Margaret Whitely Friday, 09 July 2010 00:00

At the last meeting of the North Hempstead Town Board, John Fehling, of New Hyde Park, was on hand to represent the more than 800 residents who signed a petition, presented to the town, to prevent the town from putting Oasis Camp members at Clinton G. Martin Pool, on the corner of New Hyde Park Road and Marcus Avenue, New Hyde Park.

Clinton G. Martin Pool is owned by the town, but imposes a special district tax charged to the residents of New Hyde Park to support the pool. This year, because an early payment fee was removed, residents had to pay an increase in the fee. Residents must, therefore, pay that special tax and they are then guaranteed, with their guests, exclusive use of the pool.
