Fourth of July Parade

The Williston Park Fire Department once sponsored a celebratory parade through the village. The streets were lined with folks who were on hand to give thanks to this valued group of individuals as they passed by. Their worth to this village is immeasurable.

It’s been a short week due to the Fourth of July celebrations. I was glad to march in this year’s parade sponsored by the Williston Park Fire Department. The Grand Marshal of the parade was Park Avenue’s own Phil O’Donnell, a fifty year member of the department. Phil appeared quite proud of the honor and was cheered loudly by his “groupies” as they followed him through the course of the parade route. Congratulations to Phil and his lovely wife Diane.

This parade is one of the few that is still conducted in the area commemorating the independence of the USA. It is a shame that this is not more widely celebrated as it seems to have developed into more of a sale day for many of the retail stores rather than a holiday honoring America.

Letter: Helicopter Noise in North Shore Communities

Friday, 02 July 2010 00:00

Long Islanders need to oppose the Federal Aviation Administration rulemaking to mandate helicopters fly off the North Shore enroute to eastern parts of Long Island. (Docket Number FAA-2010-0302) There will be a disproportionate volume of helicopter activity over the Town of North Hempstead communities of Great Neck, Kings Point, Locust Valley, Manhasset, Oyster Bay, Port Washington, Roslyn, and Sands Point as well as the City of Glen Cove because helicopter operators will have no option but to overfly these areas as they transit to/from a mandated North Shore Route.

House/Senate Pass Iran Sanctions Bill

United States Congressman Gary Ackerman hailed House and Senate passage of legislation he helped to craft that imposes crippling new sanctions on Iran. The measure, passed by the Senate this afternoon and the House last week is now expected to be signed into law by President Obama.

Ackerman, the chairman of the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia, played a key role in shaping the legislation as a member of the House-Senate conference committee that reconciled differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill. The panel produced the final version of the legislation that both chambers approved today.

The bill aims to force Iran to abandon its nuclear weapons program by choking its energy and financial sectors.

Today, May 31, I marched in my first Memorial Day Parade, as your mayor, through the streets of Williston Park. It was a great honor to be part of this eventful day, honoring our troops, who have passed away while serving in our armed forces. The American Legion did a fantastic job of organizing and  directing the day’s events.  Their ceremony at the Legion Hall was both  heartwarming and chilling. The dedication the Legionnaires demonstrated in remembering  our fallen soldiers  sent a strong message to those in attendance. They are to be commended for these efforts.


Letter: A Deafening and Defining Silence, Just Vote Yes

Friday, 11 June 2010 00:00

For years we continue to hear about the wonderful achievements of the incredible Herricks School District. Intel awards, Grammy’s, the Arts, and recently the beginning of Athletic Championships again. How wonderful we have all felt, until this year.

The residents of the community year after year have supported budget after budget, occasionally questioning a few items here and there but together with the school board worked to ensure education excellence in the community. We even overwhelmingly supported a bond issue needed for capital improvements, and the purchases of new transportation equipment. Again, all on the financial “backs” of the residents. We haven’t moaned or groaned we just hunker down every year and do what we always do pay! Pay to ensure the educational integrity for all our children in the Herricks School District; until this year!


Letter: Thank You to a Community That Unites

Friday, 11 June 2010 00:00

If you had MapQuested the community known as New Hyde Park/Garden City Park on Saturday June 5th your result would be just your normal Long Island town of section, blocks and lots, but if you did the same on June 6th between the hours of 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. your search would result in a community united.

A community that became one family joined by one common goal, a goal to raise money to find a cure for MS.   With the state of the economy put aside this family did what a family does best and came together.   They came together with no questions asked, just with love in their heart. 


Letter: No Meltdown in Herricks

Friday, 04 June 2010 00:00
Had the Herricks school budget passed by a single vote, all would be well. Since it failed by the same margin, it’s a crisis. School board candidates ran unopposed. Budget meetings were sparsely attended. School administrators and board members were in confident denial.
