Earth Day Cleanup

Volunteers at the 7th Annual Earth Day cleanup sponsored by the Levittown Community Council in partnership with the Town of Hempstead collected 800 pounds of garbage from public areas around the Levittown, Island Trees and Wantagh communities. 

 

More than 50 volunteers, including adults, Key Clubbers and students and confirmands working on community service credits, showed up on a somewhat cold and windy day to lend support to the cleanup effort. Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray along with Levittown Community Council directors and members Pat and Don Patane, Mauro and Louise Cassano, Tom Kohlman, Mary Kay Ross, Steve Dalton and Ginny Isola greeted the volunteers and assigned them to areas in and around the community. 

 

Volunteers included Amna Ahmed, Stephani Barreto,Emily Barcia, Anji Bolaji, Ellen Carracino, Nicolina, Macedonio and Chris Cicola, Elena Cuascut, Raquel DeLeon, Samantha DeRienzo, Shari, Gabi, Amna and Sheila Freeda, Nick and Connie Irish, Christopher and Ginny Isola,  Jonny  and Jesse Koenig, Samantha and Shawn Kucmierowski, Andrew Lennon, Christian Magorrian, Laura Maher, Angela Mathew, James Moran, Carol Olivia, Gloria Perez, Joanna Perlman, Janette Ramos, Alicia and Marion Renda, Trevor Ross, Krish and Kim Ryu, Matt and Patty Sepulveda, Arnav Sharma, Joseph Shatarah, Emily Stones, Kayla Strong, Milissa Williams, Tony Woo, and Helen Zheng.

 

Council President Bob Koenig thanked all of the volunteers as they returned to the starting location at the OfficeMax parking lot with the debris they collected and to return rakes, grabbers, and vests on loan from the Levittown School District and the Town of Hempstead.


News

Nassau County Police with the second precinct recently arrested a 25-year-old Levittown woman on allegations of assault. 

 

On Aug. 16, police responded to reports of two people fighting along Ponder Lane. According to police, an investigation determined that the defendant Theresa A. Signoriello assaulted a 24-year-old female. The victim has a valid order of protection against Signoriello, which she violated.

After graduating from MacArthur High School in the fall of 1994, United States Marine Corps Veteran Sgt. Peter D’Angelo attended one semester at C.W. Post before he decided to drop out and join the military. 

 

“I couldn’t afford it,” D’Angelo said, “so I enlisted.”

 

Once finished with his basic training at Paris Island, S.C., D’Angelo was assigned to an administrative position in Arlington, Va. There, Deangelo would be put in charge of payroll... until one day when opportunity knocked. 


Sports

Cantiague Park Senior Men’s Golf League had its fourth tournament on Thursday Aug. 7. We had 33 golfers and a record 8  who scored under 40.  Low overall score was won by newcomer Ed Hyne with an impressive 33, his second low net in a row. Charlie Acerra scored a solid 35, and won low overall net with a 26; his best score in 4 years.

 

Competition on the nine-hole course is divided into two divisions. Flight A is for players with a handicap of 13 or lower. Flight B is for players with a handicap of 14 or more.  The league is a 100 % handicap league. Any man 55 years or older is eligible for membership. We have many openings for this year, and you can sign up anytime throughout the the season. The league meets every Thursday at 7:30 a.m., but the formal tournament dates are only the first and third Thursday of the month through late October. We will have a final luncheon with prizes on our last meeting.

Golfer Annie Park, 19, of Levittown came close at the U.S. Women’s Amateur tourney, but missed the cut, finishing at 149, 9 strokes over par and just one stroke away from the match-play cut-off. 

 

“I couldn’t make any putts, so then I had more pressure into my shots to get it closer,” Park said, “but obviously that’s not going to work.”
