It’s official. After launching his campaign in March 2010, standing outside train stations, restaurants and local businesses and after a long and arduous court battle, Jack Martins can take the “-elect” off of the end of his new job title.
Former Mineola Mayor Jack Martins was sworn in as the Seventh District senator last Tuesday. Martins was accompanied by his wife Paula and the rest of the Martins family as he took the oath of senator around noon.
Festive spirits, Christmas carols and some very good food was the norm at the Mineola Chamber of Commerce Holiday Party on Tuesday, Dec. 21. The Mineola Choral Society sang Christmas carols and the Village of Mineola’s new mayor, Larry Werther, was introduced to the chamber.
The Mineola School District is in the process of completing a lease agreement with Solomon Schechter Day School of Nassau County for the use of the Cross Street School, which the board of education decided would be the first school to close in 2011.
At the board of education’s regular meeting at the Willis Avenue School, the board unanimously passed a resolution for the district’s administration to negotiate a lease in good faith for the Cross Street School. District Superintenent Dr. Mi-chael Nagler had mentioned in previous meetings that numerous parties were interested in leasing the buildings the district planned to close.
He knocked her down, but not out. One very brave woman wasn’t going to let her handbag and a mugger get away. The Third Squad reported the details of a robbery that occurred on Tuesday, Dec. 21 at 6 p.m. in Mineola.
According to detectives, a 32-year-old female was sitting on a bench on the north side of the Mineola Rail Road Station when a male subject ran past her and grabbed her purse. When the victim chased the subject and grabbed him, the suspect pushed her down, causing her to fall on her hands and knees. She suffered minor abrasions.
Get ready for some fresh made burritos, quesadillas and vegetable wraps. Chipotle Mexican Grill is coming to Mineola.
The board of trustees unanimously approved the permit for the restaurant in an empty storefront in the shopping center on the northeast corner of Herricks Road and Jericho Turnpike. The Grill Will be next to Harmon’s, which also includes a TD Bank, Panera Bread as well as other storefronts.
“A long time coming,” Bill Urianek said at last week’s board meeting; a long time indeed.
Urianek, with the help of other residents (both in and outside Mineola), has been on a quest; a quest to bestow gratitude upon veteran Christopher Levi. With the help of Urianek, countless Mineola residents, an Elmont resident and the Mineola Fire Department, checks were donated to Levi of Holbrook, who was injured overseas in an effort for him to purchase a special “Vet-Dog,” a trained dog for injured veterans.
Mineola knew this day would come sooner or later. After eight years as village mayor, Senator-elect Jack Martins formally resigned at last week’s board of trustees meeting.
The Mineola Volunteer Fire Department was certainly put to the test recently. On Friday Dec.3, the firefighters were busy preparing for Santa’s grand entrance atop Engine 163 for the Village Tree lighting. After bringing in Santa and his friends, the firefighters responded to an interior natural gas leak at the Fairhaven apartments at 7:28 p.m.
The Village of Mineola approved the special use permit application of Wei Ji Lin to establish a Chinese take-out restaurant on East Old Country Road at last week’s board of trustees meeting. The restaurant would sit in a row of stores located between Juniper Avenue and Geranium Avenue on Old Country Road. It seems like the perfect spot to complement the fairly new Kemistry Restaurant and Lounge and stores of the like.
The Mineola School District’s external accounting firm reported to the board of education at its most recent meeting at the Willis Avenue School. Dave Tellier of Nawrocki Smith, LLP detailed the district’s financial stability and basically said “we’re in good shape.”
The external auditor analyzes the district’s financial statements to see if they’re accurate and consistent with accounting standards so that the board has enough “wiggle room” to operate in assessing the financial condition of the district. Tellier said no glaring weaknesses or discrepancies existed within the 60-page report and the district was found to be in excellent condition financially.
