As Veterans Day recedes in the rearview mirror and 2009 wears away, the Levittown Historical Society stops to pause on the events of the past eleven months.
Our monthly general meetings, all open-to-the-public events at the Levittown Public Library, began in March with a commemoration of the bicentennial of Charles Darwin’s birth and a discussion on the historical influence of Darwinism augmented by an exhibit of books, photographs, and scientific memorabilia on the subject. (Coincidentally, Darwin was born on the same exact day as Abraham Lincoln).
I would like to thank the wonderful residents of Nassau County for their support on Election Day. I am honored and privileged to have been re-elected to serve as your Nassau County Clerk.
I would also like to thank the many volunteers, colleagues, neighbors and friends who gave so much of their time and efforts in support of my re-election.
More than five years ago the Levittown community welcomed me with open arms as the editor of their local newspaper. I greeted the community with my Sept. 24, 2004 editorial and I must bid farewell in the same manner.
Ever since H.G. Wells published The Time Machine back in 1895, the SciFi genre has permeated every aspect of modern popular culture. It’s in our society DNA to assume that, by the year 2525, Mars-bound spacecraft will be seen blasting off several times a day from any one of this planet’s myriad spaceports. My vision of 2525, however, is one of homespun farmers, blacksmiths, and windmills - albeit with genetically-engineered crops and the generation of electricity through means other than fossil fuels. Consider that the Amish, or at least people who will live very much like them, will be the norm in the 26th century not only because their self-sufficiency is more sustainable than our natural resource-hungry global, computerized, consumer-oriented civilization, but because they are better connected to reality, to each other, and to the source of their sustenance.
Many, many thanks for your interest and your publisher’s for their support in publishing the events on December 2004 and again on January 21, 2005 surrounding the petition to Nassau County for installation of turn lanes on Wantagh Avenue at Miller Place/Cotton Lane, Levittown.
The New York State Association for Reduction, Reuse and Recycling (NYSAR) is spreading the word that the extended Bottle Bill begins Sunday, November 8, 2009. The extended bill was originally set to begin this Saturday, October 31, but New York officials are giving retailers a “grace period” to comply with the new requirement (according to Department of Environmental Conservation spokesperson Maureen Wren).
I read last week’s Letter to the Editor and I couldn’t disagree more. The Town of Hempstead election race is not a Republican/Democrat race at all. It is an election of who has been there for this community, time and time again. I started thinking about the things that have improved since our town officials have been in office.
I urge the continued support of Town Councilman Gary Hudes.
I am thrilled to see the support for Kate Murray and Gary Hudes on people’s lawns all over Levittown.
I am writing to you to know that I am in full support of Mr. Matt Hynes as candidate for the Town of Hempstead Sixth Council District. Even though I have voted for the incumbent Republican candidates in the past, I can no longer give them my support.
