Letter: A Concern of the BOE Vote to Place Bond Vote Before Voters on Oct. 26

Friday, 27 August 2010 00:00
I write in reference to the article in the Mineola American this week concerning the Board of Education’s decision to radically reconfigure the Mineola School System and close three of its elementary schools and put before the voters a Bond of $ 6.7 million in order to execute that decision. Also included in this radical school reconfiguration plan (RSRP) will be moving the fifth grade to the current Middle School and the eighth grade to the High School in defiance of the community’s expressly stated wishes.

It took all of three seconds to fall in love with him. That tiny v-shaped face and green eyes, his stumbling kitten tip toe walk, made us all know that he was the one for us. Since his litter siblings were named Angus and Cletus, we decided that Seamus McGee was the right name for him.

 

Nassau Comptroller George Maragos to Hold Online Chat August 23

Friday, 20 August 2010 00:00

Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos will be hosting his first online chat on Aug. 23 to discuss the County’s finances and is inviting everyone to participate. The chat will begin at noon and continue until 2 p.m.

“For the first time ever, anyone can go to our website and ask questions concerning their tax dollars or report waste in government,” Maragos said. “Nassau County, like the rest of the country, is trying to cope with this recession and bad economic time. The point of this live ‘virtual town hall meeting’ is to give taxpayers the opportunity to get direct answers and to air their views.”

We want to thank you for all of the hard work in examining configuration options for our school district.  We also want to particularly thank the board for allowing additional time after the configuration options were presented at the July board meeting so that the options could be more fully considered by the community.

McCarthy Votes to Cut Government Waste

Recently, Congress passed, and I supported, the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act.  This legislation, which was signed into law by President Obama on July 22, 2010, will reduce waste, fraud and abuse of taxpayer dollars by cutting out improper and excessive payments from federal agency spending.   In addition, the bill will help identify, reduce and eliminate improper payments, as well as recover lost funds that federal agencies have spent improperly.

Friday, 06 August 2010 00:00

I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to my family and the Mineola Fire Department for their participation in the “Walk for Walter” Lustgarten Foundation Walk for Pancreatic Cancer Research on July 25. Our team joined over 4,000 walkers to raise over $1 million for pancreatic research. We walked in honor of Walter Langer, ex-chief of the fire department, who succumbed to cancer in June 2008. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Letter: TNH Supervisor Proud Of Great Neck Storm Response

Friday, 23 July 2010 00:00
Devastation reigned in the wake of the recent tornado-like event that recently struck the Great Neck peninsula. The June 24 storm, or “micro-burst” as the National Weather Service declared it, lasted only a matter of minutes but the havoc it caused will be with us for a long time to come.
