Friday, 22 February 2013 00:00

Manhasset organization and Doug Flutie contribute

Their mission is simple: create employment opportunities for individuals whom may otherwise be deemed unemployable. Spectrum Designs Foundation is a nonprofit social enterprise that produces customized printed apparel, but is unique in that it is primarily staffed by teens and young adults with autism and developmental disabilities. An innovative program developed by The Nicholas Center for Autism in Port Washington, their effort highlights the dire need for purposeful employment creation and training in the local community. The center is named for Manhasset resident Stella Spankos’s son Nicholas.

According to the CDC, 1 in 88 individuals are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. Autism is a lifelong neurological condition that affects the way one communicates, socializes and interacts with the world around them. It is not uncommon for many young people with autism to lead lives of isolation and seclusion.

Written by Pat Grace. pgrace@antonnews.com Friday, 22 February 2013 00:00

The redistricting map proposed by the Republican Party in the Nassau County Legislature passed through the rules committee along party lines. The presiding officer, reported Legislator Judi Bosworth, said they were just passing it along to be discussed at the full legislative session on Feb 25.  

Manhasset residents concerned about the map should attend the Feb. 25 full legislative session which begins at 1 p.m. at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building. 1550 Franklin Avenue, Mineola. Meetings are held on the first floor legislative chamber. There will be time for public comment. One of the flaws of the map, Bosworth noted, is that is separates the Manhasset community into as many legislative districts as it does - three.

Nevertheless, the rules committee passed the map 4-3 in a party line vote; barring an eleventh-hour surprise, it is expected to pass the Republican-controlled legislature at the next meeting on Feb. 25.
