Letter: The Pride Hoopsters are Back

Hofstra University men’s basketball is back and in full bloom for another season.

In terms of team history, try this question.  What metropolitan men’s basketball team (including Manhattan, Rider, Seton Hall, Wagner) has the most wins in the last five years as well as the last 10 years, and has the most 20-win seasons since 2002. It’s Hofstra.

Representative Charlie Rangel was censored by Congress for some 12 ethic violations. Personally, I thought he got off easy. Rangel is a Democrat and yet most of the Demorcats in the House approved the censure. All the Republicans also approved except one, Peter King. King, longtime Nassau representative, pulls surprises. Generally, he votes the conservative Republican line and yet right now he is battling the rest of his party to get approval of the funds for the ground zero workers. Peter King has long fought for the Catholics of North Ireland and got the U.S. to invite the IRA leader Gerry Adams to the U.S. in spite of bitter British objections. King is a former boxer and fights hard for what he believes in like the treatment of Catholics in Northern Ireland. When much of the country was singing the praises of the late Michael Jackson, King reminded us of the many charges and trials of Jackson, recalling charges both proven and unproven. When President Bill Clinton was impeached, Peter King was the only Republican to support Clinton. He also has a close bi-partisan relationship with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Both parties agree that King has done a great job as head of Homeland Security for this area.

Thank you to everyone who contributed in some way to our project of delivering meals to homebound senior citizens and those in need on Thanksgiving afternoon.  Through the generosity of so many, 240 hot dinners were delivered throughout Nassau County and 19 families were provided with the fixings to make their own Thanksgiving meal.

Letter: Local Resident Happy Mineola BOE Listened to Community

Friday, 03 December 2010 00:00

I am very proud of our Board of Education majority for listening to the community and giving us the North and South PreK-2 schools (Meadow and Hampton) for which we asked. Your vote last Thursday demonstrated your inherent good will and spirit of compromise.

 

Letter: Mineola School District Council of PTAs Releases Statement

Board trustees are invited to PTA meetings at every level, every month.  Parents and community members attend Board of Education meetings twice a month. Throughout this long and emotional process of school reconfiguration, the Board of Education has been repeatedly commended for its efforts to consider feedback from the community.

Supreme Court decisions can be both good and bad. A good one was the banning of partial birth abortion. This horrible procedure has now been outlawed. Even many pro-choice people say that it is close to outright murder. On the other hand their decision to allow unlimited advertising from corporations and unions is destroying our democratic elections. This unregulated money flowing into campaigns often from unknown sources is unfair and should be controlled.

 

Letter: Resident Comments On Previous School Bond Vote

Friday, 26 November 2010 00:00

469 yea! 2234 nay! By a nearly 5 to 1 margin, voters rejected a bond that was presented as the most cost-effective option in terms of savings. Was it defeated because of an anti-clustering sentiment? Or because of opposition to moving fifth and eighth graders to the middle school and high school, respectively? Or because of a desire not to see neighborhood schools closed? Or because of closing buildings while bonding to build onto others? Or was it due to a combination of some or all of these factors? The question as to what the community wants remains unanswered.

 

Letter: Herricks and Mineola Merge into Herneola

Friday, 19 November 2010 00:00

Over the few years long process of reconfiguring our schools, it has been suggested by some board members that John McGrath has stood silently by, adding nothing to the process as a sign of his objection to closing any schools. When asked for his input at a recent school board meeting, his reply was “I’ll think about it and get back to you.”
