County Executive’s Column: July 2, 2010

Enjoy the County’s Parks This Summer

As we head into the warm days of summer, you may be wondering what resources and activities are available to you and your family. While funds for the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation have been cut 25 percent in the past two years, I’m pleased to say that Nassau County’s parks are open for business!


Letter: Still Time to Host a Fresh Air Fund Child

Friday, 02 July 2010 00:00
Summer vacation, that special time of year for all children, is upon us and members of the local community still have the chance to make it memorable for a child from New York City! Thanks to the many families in Nassau County and throughout 13 Northeastern states and Canada, more than 1.7 million New York City children from low-income neighborhoods have enjoyed free summer experiences in suburban and small town communities through The Fresh Air Fund. The Fund is currently seeking more families to give inner-city children a two-week experience this summer. By volunteering as a host family for the Friendly Town program, a child can have a break from the heat and noise of the crowded city streets.

Homer Simpson on Health Insurance

We are all familiar with stories about the ineptitude of government officials and regulators in protecting the public. At the SEC, they fell asleep at the wheel as Bernie Madoff made off with billions. In its eagerness to put more low-income families into their own homes, HUD failed to rein in Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae from saddling borrowers with mortgages they could not afford. So, it comes as no surprise to me that I cannot get a straight answer about who regulates the commercial insurance industry in New York State.

Dear President Obama:

The New York chapter of the National Association of Jewish Legislators urges you to remain resolute in American support of Israel, which continues to be our staunch ally.

Frustrated With Broken Immigration System? Arizona Law Isn’t the Answer

Arizona’s draconian new anti-immigrant law has aroused some strong feelings, to say the least.


From Sustainable Long Island: June 4, 2010

Are You Prepared, Long Island?

We often hear the labeling of so many different aspects of today’s world as “going green.” We hear about a building going green, a company going green, a person going green or even an entire town going green.


Letter: The Truth About Arizona’s Immigration Law

Friday, 28 May 2010 08:17

(This letter is in response to a column, “Arizona’s Draconian Immigration Law Reverberates Everywhere,” by Maryann Sinclair Slutsky, one printed in the May 21, 2010 issue of The Massapequan Observer.)

  Bob Krentz was a rancher.  He was the most recent in a long line of family farmers that spans over 100 years.  While checking the water levels, as he did every evening, Bob found a man lying on the ground.  The man complained of being sick and asked for help.  Bob quickly called for helicopter evac to bring the sickly man medical attention.  As Bob turned his back to get supplies from his ATV, the man shot him in his side.  The man was an illegal immigrant, trying to cross the border through the cover of darkness.


Letter: Who Can Stay in Massapequa?

Friday, 28 May 2010 08:16

Now that the school budget has passed, I’m sure you will see even more homes for sale in Massapequa. It’s amazing that all the people you talk to about high taxes don’t vote. More troubling are some of the reasons for voting, such as “Yes, my daughter is a teacher.” “It’s going to pass anyway.” “It’s for the kids.” How many kids are going to be able to live in Massapequa when they get older? At the current tax rate or the ascending scale it is not reachable. Shame on all the media, including News 12 and Newsday for being sympathetic to the teachers union.

Letter: The Importance of Your Local Library

Friday, 07 May 2010 00:00
One of the most important services any community enjoys is its public library. You wouldn’t think so judging by the actions Governor Paterson and the New York State Assembly have taken on funding libraries and library systems in the State’s 2010-11 state budget plans. The governor has recommended that state aid to library systems and their member libraries be reduced by $4.2 million. The Senate has rejected this recommendation, but the Assembly is still debating it.
