Around The Town With Lou

Carl Marchese and Rosemary Schmaeline announced their engagement and will be married shortly. Carl, a CPA, was the chief financial officer of Molloy College and was a former Mineola village clerk. He is now on the Zoning Board and is active in the Italian American Society and in Corpus Christi Church.

 

In a wide ranging homily about the parable of the mustard seed, Corpus Christi Church Pastor Monsignor Robert Batule mentioned the Magna Carta and long ago British Prime Minister William Gladstone and William Penn. His subject was justice delayed is justice denied.

 

Lorella Belia of Roslyn Road is an assistant gym teacher.

 

Bob and Carol Maichin live on Mineola Boulevard. He is a retired banker and she is a teacher’s assistant.

 

Bill Corbett is a former homicide detective with the NYPD. He served 41 years in the police department. He and Mary live on Clinton Avenue.

 

Jim Gillece was also an NYPD member serving in the emergency unit. He and Sheila have a home on Albertson Place.

 

Paul Cusato has been a member of the village board for 10 years. Some may remember his dad, Joe Cusato, who had a music store on Jericho Turnpike. Paul was in the electronics business for 35 years and is the lone member of the Hometown Party on the board. He lives on Argyle Road.

 

Emilia Bestzerda of Roselle Street was born in Mineola 18 years ago and is now a freshman at Adelphi University majoring in business administration.

 

Regina Ressegue was also born here 63 years ago and worked for Avis for 35 years. Her husband, William, served in the Marines in the South Pacific during World War II.

If you know of an elderly couple or person needing help around their home, everyday or once or twice a week, call Carol Bella at 741-5605. The schedule can be flexible. She is very reliable.

 

Dino Giranti and his son Vinny are very good painters, both interior and exterior. They live on Fairfield Avenue.

 

David Letterman found this headline: “Let Our Fish Stalk Your Pool.” They meant “Stock Your Pool.” I thought those fish looked a little fishy. Couldn’t resist that one. 


News

The Mineola School Board will hold a public hearing on the much-debated New York State veterans exemption on Thursday, Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the Willis Avenue School. It is expected the board will either approve or disapprove the tax exemption during its regular meeting at 7 p.m.

When votes go to the polls next week on Tuesday, Nov. 4 to vote on the Town of North Hempstead’s 2nd Council District seat, candidate Bonnie Parente feels her stance on the building department is what voters will remember when casting their choice. The 2nd council district post is currently held by Peter Zuckerman, a former East Hills trustee. He was appointed to the seat in January to replace Thomas Dwyer, who resigned last year.

 

“That’s the major issue I heard about when I knocked on doors,” she said. “No matter where I am, I could be at the Herricks Community Center or the Albertson Pasta Dinner and

predominately what people ask about is how to fix the building department.”


Sports

Samantha Pastore

Samantha Pastore, senior and third-year varsity player, is also co-captain of the currently undefeated (11-0) Mineola Girls Varsity Volleyball team. She is an outside hitter and is often recognized in games by starting rallies with her quick thinking and nimble feet. She earns 20 percent of the team’s points and averages four aces per match.

The Mineola Mustangs varsity football team fell to the Seaford Vikings last week 27-21, missing their chance to tie the top seeds Locust Valley and Roosevelt’s 6-1 Nassau conference IV record.

 

After tying the game in the second half and having the opportunity to capitalize on Seaford’s failed extra-point kick on their final touchdown, the Viking’s senior wide receiver/defensive back Bobby Buell knocked away a pass from Mineola senior quarterback James Gerstner to senior wide receiver Brian Smith in the end-zone with 57 seconds left
