Letter: A Great Community

Thursday, 30 October 2014 00:00

Now that we are in full back to school mode for the past couple of months I would to express my admiration and gratitude to our wonderful community. First, to our wonderful New Hyde Park Fire Department, which I had called for help back in June when my wife accidentally cut her hand with a knife while preparing dinner. She had sliced the radial artery, nerve and tendons, it was a horrific scene and the fire department had arrived within 60 seconds of my call. They were professional, courteous and very knowledgeable for what had to be done.  These volunteers should be commended for their dedication and goodwill to assist our community. They will always have my application and gratitude for their selfless service, so if you ever see them racing in their own vehicle with that blue light flashing, please give the respect they deserve and give the right of way, because someone is in need of their help.

 

Letter: Revisiting Sandy and the Fracking Debate

Thursday, 23 October 2014 00:00

As the second anniversary of Hurricane Sandy approaches, memories of the destruction produced by the storm still haunts most Long Islanders. 

 

I have lived in Massapequa since 1982. During that time, I have lived through Hurricane Gloria, blizzards, torrential rainstorms and Hurricane Irene. What happened the night of 10-29-12 was traumatic for me, my wife and daughter. 

 

Letter: Political Ads and TV News

Thursday, 23 October 2014 00:00

 I am tired of political ads that are only mudslingers.  The local and national news, especially on television, should be devoting at least five minutes a day to informed, unbiased reportage.  They all seem to report on the same hot button issues about people in the entertainment industry, such as their marital affairs.  When it comes to candidates, they report on their missteps: lack of morality, fidelity, and ethics.  They do not tell us about the candidates’ voting record, values, supporters, and views on issues, past and present.

 

 Most people watch television for some news.  If only the sensational and negative news predominate, they are getting no real news. I call this censorship. The local and national news stations should be presenting factual reporting, not hype.  They have failed the public.  Where is my five minutes a day?  Why aren’t they doing this?

Thursday, 23 October 2014 00:00

We are in a great position this year to elect a new member of the Town Council in the 2nd District, which covers Albertson, East Hills, East Williston, Glenwood Landing, Greenvale, Herricks, Manhasset Hills, Roslyn Harbor, Roslyn Heights and Searingtown. As a Nassau County Legislator, I support Bonnie Parente for the seat. 

 

Letter: Save The Trees

Thursday, 16 October 2014 00:00

 

South Oyster Bay Road has 40-year-old trees lining the roadway. They are mainly beautiful sycamores. They form a canopy of shade across the road, give home to nesting birds, put oxygen into the air we breathe, and add to the beauty of Hicksville, Plainview, and Syosset.  They are also slated for slaughter, a cutting down due to the shortsightedness of our politicians.

 

Letter: Common Core Gets A Big Fat ‘F’

Thursday, 16 October 2014 00:00

 

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting with New York State Senator Kemp Hannon on Sept. 4 to discuss our significant concerns with the Common Core Curriculum. The senator graciously agreed to meet and spent almost an hour with us, listening to the issues associated with the curriculum.   

 

 

Letter: Vote For Martins

Thursday, 16 October 2014 00:00

When Jack Martins became mayor of Mineola, he set a standard of accountability. He began a program to turn the village back from increasing high debt which would have crashed the village on the shore of one sided thinking.

New Hyde Park Marvels

Written by LAURA CERRONE Thursday, 02 October 2014 00:00

Farmer’s  Market Is Local  At Its Best

 

On Saturday mornings, Jericho Turnpike is free of its chaotic weekday traffic and becomes temporarily an idyllic thoroughfare. However, there is one corner of Jericho that still has its upbeat cadence, the municipal parking lot across from Village Hall in New Hyde Park.  The lot is adorned with white tents, and underneath, rain or shine, are treats for everyone in town.

 

It is a scene reminiscent of a medieval marketplace, but it is 2014 and we are standing in the middle of the New Hyde Park Farmers’ Market.

Thursday, 02 October 2014 00:00

I was delighted to see the NYLCV’s (New York League of Conservation Voters) endorsement of Senator Jack Martins for State Senate.  I am a resident of Roslyn Estates and recently experienced first-hand the responsiveness and dedication of the Senator on resolving a problem with a contaminated well affecting Roslyn’s water supply.  It began with an email I sent directly to the Senator on behalf of our neighborhood coalition CCORE (Concerned Citizens of Roslyn Estates) expressing our concerns with the safety of our water and the proposed remediation of an air stripper to be erected adjacent to a neighbor’s property where children live.  I was astounded to receive a phone call within 24 hours directly from the Senator who took the time to listen to all of our concerns and then reached out to state environmental experts to properly assess and correct the water pollution issue.  Having dealt with water pollution and safety issues in prior situations in Long Island,  he was able to effectively work with Assemblywoman Michele Schimel, our Mayor Jeffrey Schwartzberg and other local officials, to find a remediation effort that met the needs of our community—all within the space of a month.  We were greatly satisfied with the immediacy and hard work that the Senator devoted to successfully resolving this problem, staying closely in touch with us throughout the process.   Senator Martins proved to us that no issue was too small for him to pay attention to where it involved the environment and water safety. The endorsement from the NYLCV is well-deserved.
