Spring Is Here

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the residents who voted in this year’s election. While the positions open for election were unopposed, the fact that individuals came out to vote demonstrates a dedication to the governance of the village.

 

I offer our condolences to the Sinone family on their sudden loss of John Sinone, former associate justice of the Williston Park village justice court. John served the village well in this capacity for eight years.

 

It appears that spring has finally arrived in this great Village of Williston Park. Grass is beginning to sprout, leaf buds are forming and in some cases opening while residents are sprucing up their properties in anticipation of the milder weather which will be moving into the area during the next few weeks.

 

With this spring weather upon us, the road project has resumed and is in full swing. The project should move along quickly, barring unforeseen extended poor weather conditions. Village employees have begun “spring clean-up” in earnest.

 

Pothole repairs have been ongoing, and limited concrete work has begun. Landscaping crews have been cleaning and restoring much of our “green space” including the Little League field at Kelleher Park.

 

Work is expected to begin on the front of the Village Hall. The steps are being replaced as a result of their deteriorated condition. At the same time, the front of the building will be sealed with a waterproofing system to eliminate water seeping into our library.

 

The village staff will be moving operations to the pool facility in the near future in order to begin the necessary work to ensure that the pool is ready to swing into full operation in June. I suggest that residents sign up early for membership in order to enjoy the benefits of the “early bird special.” The Village Green will be sent out in a couple of weeks which will include membership applications.

 

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and my family, we wish all a Happy Passover and a Happy Easter.


News

Gitangalie Palombo, an Elmont yoga instructor, will open Fly High Dance and Fitness on the second floor at 111 E. Jericho Tpke. after her plan was approved by the Mineola Village

Board last week. She expects to open by January 2015. Sherwin Williams occupies the main floor.

 

“We want to be a great addition to the community,” she said. “I hope Fly High brings a new flare to the area.”

Local school districts are reaffirming student hygiene standards in the wake of the non-polio enterovirus (EV-D68) that’s been found in the United States. A strain of the enterovirus was found in Southampton’s middle and high schools, but officials say it was not the virus that has caused the national EV-D68 outbreak.

 

The enterovirus disproportionately affects infants, children and adolescents who lack immunity, according to the Center for Disease Control. School districts have been notified to follow New York State Health Department guidelines to combat possible infections.


Sports

The New York Cosmos hosted the Mineola Athletic Association’s Soccer Club recently for its penultimate fall 2014 home game. More than 140 members of the MAA soccer club and their families came out on a chilly October evening to show their love of the game. Twenty-two Mineola boys and girls had the honor of escorting the New York Cosmos and Ottawa Fury players onto the field in the traditional “Walk of Champions.”

 

The Mineola spirit must have inspired the home team, as spectators enjoyed the exciting 2-1 Cosmos victory, with the game-winning goal coming in stoppage time.


As a current member of the Mineola High School Varsity Soccer team, senior, Catherine Cunningham has been dominating the scoring for the Mustangs.  She has 12 goals and two assists in the last seven games. 

 

In her last week of play alone, she amassed six goals in just three games. As a captain for the last two years, Cunningham has been an All-Conference and All-Class player, leading her team to two victories so far this season.
