HS Sports Teams Shine; GOP Regains Control of County Legislature

Politics and sports were the big stories coming out of Massapequa in 2009.

In politics, Massapequa, a village at the heart of the Republican coalition in Nassau County, will see one of its lawmakers play a major role in the governance of the county. That will happen in the person of Peter J. Schmitt, the longtime county legislator representing Massapequa. When the GOP lost control of the county legislature in 1999, Schmitt assumed the role of minority leader. He held that post throughout the 2000s and when the GOP won back control of the legislature in November 2009, Schmitt became majority leader for the legislature that convened in January.

“We are thrilled to be taking over the majority,” a happy Schmitt said after the GOP won control of the legislature. “We look forward to doing what we told the residents we would do. We are going to repeal that home energy tax and we’re going to cut spending and we are going to repair the institutional integrity of the legislature.”

Suspects Flee the Scene; Leaving a Four-Year Old in the Car Behind Them

No arrests have been made in a bizarre chase, one in which larceny suspects fled the scene of an accident, leaving a four-and-a-half year old child alone in their vehicle.

In what a Nassau County detective called “despicable behavior,” the entire incident occurred in Massapequa on Monday, Jan. 11 at 3:54 p.m. when a stolen vehicle struck a residence.

Detectives said that a Fifth Precinct Police officer, while on routine patrol in the parking lot of 941 Carmans Ave., attempted to stop a 2008 Hyundai stolen from New York City on Sept. 11, 2009.
