Hurricane Sandy has taken a toll on the lives of many in the areas that Anton Community Newspapers serves and well beyond. Our heartfelt wis hes go out to all, hoping that life returns to normal, or somewhere close to that, for residents as soon as possible. Community spirit - neighbors helping neighbors - has been evident in so many situations. For those who need additional services, below is a list of contacts that we hope will be helpful.

Have an itch to shop? Look no further than the Mineola High School PTSA Mustang Fall Shopping Spree on Friday, Nov. 2 from 7 to 9:30 p.m. in the high school cafeteria with an assortment of vendors and raffles. This event reminds me of the book fairs with vendors and raffles that I attended while going to Covert Avenue School in Elmont.
Covering the debate last week, this time at Anton Community Newspapers, I researched, clicked, scrolled, flipped pages and the like, leading up to Oct. 16. Going in, I knew what had to be done.

At last weeks Mineola Village Board of Trustees meeting, Mayor Scott Strauss said “Mr. Mineola,” John DaVanzo was in the hospital and asked that you keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Heed the advice and do so. DaVanzo has been a fixture in the community and has always given without asking for anything in return.
At times, my intuition is way ahead of my brain. I’d like to think that I arrive at a lot of my opinions through logical reasoning, but often, I feel like something is wrong long before I can articulate why it’s wrong. This was the case with the word “privilege” as used in the phrases “white privilege,” “male privilege,” and the especially reviled “white male privilege.” Something about the way these terms are bandied about bothered me, but I couldn’t explain why until recently.
It’s not that I have any doubt that privilege exists; I’ve certainly seen it in action. Even if you’re not particularly devoted to the cause of achieving greater social justice, it’s not difficult to see that being white and male confer some advantages in our culture. So if I admit privilege exists, why does the term make me wince in annoyance?
It’s not every day when you get a letter answered from the highest house in the United States. Mineola resident Adnan Tapa, a fourth-grade student at Jackson Avenue School recently expressed his concern over world actions to President Barack Obama in the form of a letter.
On Wednesday I will close the sale of my childhood home at 221 McKinley Parkway, Mineola. My parents Joseph and Gilda Jansen moved to Mineola in June of 1953 and raised four siblings and myself in the village. My father died in 2008 and my mother passed away in December of 2011. This simple real estate transaction severs my physical connection to Mineola.
However, I have only the fondest and warmest memories of my childhood there in the 1950s and 1960s. There was something very different about that now bygone era.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the Mineola Fair. Apologies if I missed anyone. Thanks for all:
