Suozzi Hits The Ground Running

Written by Carol Frank, cfrank@antonnews.com Friday, 22 February 2013 00:00

From one day to the next, the race for leading Nassau County out of a fiscal swamp has become super-charged as the possibility of three Democrats fighting for the county executive hot spot to oppose incumbent Republican Edward Mangano in the general election takes shape.

The first Democratic candidate who filed, Adam Haber, has already charged that former county executive Thomas Suozzi, in for a rematch, failed the county due to “his tax hikes, budget deficits or back-room deals... no-show Suozzi will keep failing to lead on the issues that matter to middle class families.” Anton News reached out to Mr. Haber’s press secretary, but at press time had not yet received a response.

Monies eliminated for numerous county agencies

With no budget agreement in sight and numerous agencies now defunded, the Nassau County Youth Services Coalition once again rallied on Friday, July 6, at the Theodore Roosevelt Legislative Executive Building in Mineola to both protest the lack of inaction and to seek the restoration of lost funds.

In June, numerous youth agencies received notice that their county contracts would be cancelled and funding eliminated on July 5 if Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano’s fiscal recovery plan was not approved.

 

Going In Reverse? Know The Facts When Deciding Upon A Reverse Mortgage

Written by Ronald Scaglia: rscaglia@antonnews.com Friday, 06 July 2012 08:30
Money to go on a vacation, make home repairs, pay for medical expenses or simply to have in order to enjoy a comfortable retirement. Furthermore, it’s tax-free and doesn’t affect Medicare or Social Security. It sounds like a great deal, at least according to the commercials promoting the benefits of getting a reverse mortgage. However, before you sign on the dotted line, seniors should be well informed of what a reverse mortgage is and all of the benefits and consequences of getting one.

“You need to be thoughtful,” says Ira Rheingold, executive director of the National Association of Consumer Advocates. “This is not a panacea. This is not free money. You’re basically taking the equity out of your home. You’re not going to be able to use the money for anything else.”

 

Theme Of Senior Frolic Was ‘Enchanted Forest’

Written by Pat Grace: pgrace@antonnews.com Friday, 06 July 2012 00:00
The theme of the 2012 Senior Frolic was “Enchanted Forest” and it certainly was. It is a longstanding Manhasset tradition that parents create the venue for their children to celebrate on the evening of their graduation, and the co-chairs for this year’s Frolic, Karen Blando, Jeannette Reilly, and Donna Wang, along with many “graduating” parents, observed that tradition beautifully.

Also a tradition, the community is invited to the Frolic walk-thru to visit and bear witness to their spectacular effort. It is such a major undertaking that the committee began planning and coordinating in September 2011. Many senior parents and other community members contributed to the Frolic, including several former frolic chairs.

 

TONH Approves Pool Acquisition

Roslyn residents support move to reopen pool, tennis courts

Sporting stickers that read “TONH Vote YES,” dozens of local residents packed into the June 19 Town of North Hempstead board meeting to support a vote approving the sale of the Roslyn Country Club to the town, one that would reopen both the pool and the tennis courts.

And that is what happened as the board voted 5-2 to approve the acquisition of the 7.2 acres of land on the Roslyn Country Club in Roslyn Heights. The cost of the acquisition is $7.5 million as the board also approved a bond for that same amount. Voting to approve the resolution was Supervisor Jon Kaiman, plus board members Thomas Dwyer, Lee Seeman, Viviana Russell and Anna Kaplan. Voting in opposition were Angelo Ferrara and Dina DeGiorgio.

 

Manhasset High School Class Of 2012 Graduates

Students encouraged to dream big, see the best in everyone and show gratitude

A storm watch was in effect June 22, and the downpour limited access to the Manhasset High School Class of 2012 Graduation Ceremony for some when it was held in the gymnasium but did nothing to damper the spirits of those seated, waiting excitedly for the students to enter. Inside, the early arrivals greeted and congratulated each other and couldn’t stop smiling while outside the torrential rains brought the temperature down to high 70s from high 90s—the only silver lining to the miserable weather.

On schedule, the Manhasset High School Symphony Orchestra performed “Pomp and Circumstance” under the direction of Mrs. Caroline Shyr as students marched into the gym amid a controlled frenzy of family and friends recording the event with cameras, cell phones, videos, and precious memory.

Innovative Program At MHS For College-Bound Seniors

Administration, faculty, CASA, and the SCA promote ‘harm reduction’

A concerned resident sent the Manhasset Press a photo taken in Plandome at the corner of Westgate Boulevard and Plandome Road of Smirnoff Vodka bottles tossed onto the grass, asking, “Do parents know where their kids are? Who they’re with? What they’re doing? Do they care?”

Coalition Against Substance Abuse (CASA) cares and has maintained a presence in Manhasset for a long time, often ignored, some might observe.
