Local Donations Fill U-Haul Trailer With Overflow Donated to Local Veterans

In the wake of the tornadoes that destroyed the town of Joplin, Missouri, the Levittown Kiwanis Club and the Long Island Division of Circle K teamed up to fill a U-Haul trailer with the most needed relief items for delivery to the disaster area on Saturday, July 24.

Levittown’s shoppers may have noticed an unusual number of collection drives outside local supermarkets and inside Levittown’s Old Navy considering it is not the traditional holiday season. This whirlwind of midsummer collection drives over a four-day span led to a U-haul trailer and the back of a Suburban full of nonperishable food, toiletries, clothing, and furniture and an additional $1,100 heading from Levittown to Joplin for the victims of the May 22 tornado that devastated the Missouri town.

Maragos: Coliseum Development Important; Makes Recommendations for Lease Agreement

Friday, 29 July 2011 00:00

“The development of the Hub is critically important to the Nassau County economy,” Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos said at a July 21 press conference. “It currently supports hundreds of jobs and has the potential to create thousands of construction jobs and permanent jobs as well as increase tax revenues.”

Maragos said that he conducted a review to determine the economic feasibility of the current proposal to develop the Nassau Hub and retain the NY Islanders hockey team.
