Letter: Government Should Not Be Running Health Care

Friday, 02 April 2010 00:00

With the House of Representatives passing a health care bill, we are on the path to getting some kind of national health care plan; socialized medicine, with all the attending horror stories, bureaucratic bungling, mismanagement, and corruption the Tea Party protestors fear. What avenue undertaken by government on a large scale is not utterly festooned with these things? But for the sake of future historians, let’s acknowledge that this revolution in health care is because the current system is awful. It has bankrupted families and contributed to the malpractice that kills and injures more Americans than the Vietnam War.

 

Letter: Nolan Should Run for Governor

Friday, 26 March 2010 00:00
I formerly lived in Islip for 30 years and I would like to compliment Islip Town Supervisor Mr. Nolan in having the best interest of the tax-paying public first and foremost! It was not popular with the town workers, who were getting a free ride, at the tax-paying public’s expense.
 

Letter: Include Your Pets in Disaster Plans

Friday, 26 March 2010 00:00

Many LI residents were taken by surprise by last weekend’s storm and had no plan for their pets when they evacuated. This is a wakeup call given the predictions for a more active than normal Hurricane Season. Now is the time to make family evacuation plans including your pet.

 

Letter: Part of Levittown’s History

Friday, 19 March 2010 00:00

When I was 9 or 10 years old, my family moved from Queens to Seaford, which is not far from where they were building Levittown. I used to ride my bike everywhere, including the famous Vanderbilt Motor Parkway, which ran right through Levittown.

Letter: It Is Time to Say No

Friday, 12 March 2010 00:00

In the March 5 issue of the Levittown Tribune the Levittown Property Owners Association’s meeting minutes contained a report that the Levittown School Board would be considering a budget for the coming year that would call for an increase in taxes of 4 or 5 percent.

 

Letter: State Park Closings Are Unnecessary

Friday, 12 March 2010 00:00

It is troubling to imagine that Long Islanders could lose some of the most family-friendly park venues in this state and that a patriotic event, like the Jones Beach July 4th fireworks celebration, could be discontinued.

 

Letter: A Question for Bill Levitt

Friday, 05 March 2010 00:00

Well hello everybody. My name is Bill. I am the owner and the architect of LevitStyle. My company remodels the homes here in Levittown, the first American suburb built by Bill Levitt some 60+ years ago. I never met Bill Levitt. He passed away in 1994 at the age of 87, but after working exclusively on his houses since 1996 I would like to ask him something.

 

Sacrificing Our Lands and Waters

Written by By Bill Ulfelder, New York State Director, The Nature Conservancy Friday, 05 March 2010 00:00

The lands, waters, and wildlife of New York are vital to our state’s identity and strength. If enacted, Governor Paterson’s FY2010/11 Executive Budget proposal would strike a harsh blow to the state’s ability to address critical environmental issues now and for years to come. Our rich natural resources protect our drinking water, contribute billions of dollars a year in revenue through tourism and other industries, provide green spaces for millions of city residents, and support a breathtaking variety of wildlife. From the Adirondacks to the shores of the Hudson to the bays and beaches of Long Island, our precious lands and waters must be protected—for our health, for our prosperity and for our children’s future.

 

Letter: So Much History in Levittown

Friday, 26 February 2010 00:00

People came from miles around to collect violets in the meadows across the street from the farmhouse, especially after the Wantagh Parkway came by in 1936. She recollected it well: the constellations of wildflowers splashed across the land, northwards, as far as the eye could see into Hicksville.
