Letter: Let’s Get Our Pitchforks

Friday, 19 February 2010 00:00

Recently, I was in a conversation with a friend I hadn’t seen in about a year and the subject drifted from the state of our economy to overall taxes and then to school taxes. When he heard just how much it costs per year for a student here in Mineola, he had but one comment, “It’s a wonder that you don’t all stand at the school board with pitchforks and demand a stop to those taxes.”

Slander and libel were my topics as I spoke to the Leisure Club having been invited by Gerri Solosky, the program chairperson. Her husband Ed is the president. There were 117 people at the meeting. Among those I had a chance to talk to were Bill and Ann Doyle, Charles and Marjorie Bedell, Mary Creegan, Joe McCarthy, Hilda Nagler, Helen Melvin, Josephine Musico, Margaret Rooney, Mary O’Boyle, Mary Clarkin, Patricia Haddock, Mary Ann Plaia, Jeanne Scisci, Electra Gaglia, Greta Benkert, Jean Gallo, Simon and Marilyn Lemli, Anges Delaportas, Arline Cavanaugh, Lillian Barnola, Trude and Harold Pfleghardt, Leslie Kerzner, Sonia Rechcigl, Jean Cerruti, Agostina Giambalvo, Ann Hull, Enes Morello, Dorothy Rehman, Helen Minchella, Dorothy Cmielowski, Helen McCarthy, and Eileen Ferguson. The threat of slander was the reason that Mayor Martins changed the speaking format at the televised village board meetings. There was a personal attack against an unelected person that could have led to legal action. Now the mayor requires written subject matter from people wanting to address the board.

Liver Lines - February 5, 2010

Written by David Bernstein Friday, 05 February 2010 00:00

At the start of this new decade, liver disease continues to be major source of morbidity and mortality both at home and around the world. We expect a significant rise in the incidence of viral hepatitis and other infectious diseases following the devastating earthquake in Haiti. Hepatitis B is one of those conditions. During the last decade, our ability to recognize, understand and treat hepatitis B has improved exponentially. From the first approved therapies in the mid-1990s through today, we have seen several new potent agents become available to treat this potentially serious infection. Chronic hepatitis B affects an estimated 300 million to 400 million people worldwide and about 1 million to 2 million people Americans. It is more common in Asian-Americans and Native Americans than Caucasians and African-Americans. Chronic hepatitis B is characterized in the blood by a positive hepatitis B surface antigen and the presence of hepatitis B virus in the blood and it is usually asymptomatic. People suffering from this virus have an increased chance of developing cirrhosis, liver cancer and needing a liver transplantation due to liver failure. In the United States, sexual contact is the most common means of disease transmission, although this condition may be passed along via contact from any bodily fluid. It is for this reason that all close contacts of chronic hepatitis B patients need to be vaccinated against hepatitis B to prevent its spread.

Corpus Christi School closing after 87 years. This sad news hits so many. We can at least hope that the closing can help St. Aidan’s school and St. Joseph’s. A salute to the many nuns and lay teachers who taught there for so many years. The many students to graduate and went on to live very successful lives will always remember their first school.


Letter: Corpus Christi School Closing Sad for Community

Friday, 22 January 2010 00:00

It is with a heavy heart that I read the letter I received at home and the front page article of the Long Island Catholic about Corpus Christi School closing in June. After 85 plus years, for Corpus Christi School to close is not only devastating, it is nothing short of a tragedy.


Letter: NuHealth Website Offers Access to Haitian Relief Efforts

As the island nation of Haiti struggles to recover from the unimaginable destruction resulting from the recent earthquake, our thoughts and prayers are with not only with the victims, but with our many employees and patients of Haitian descent.


Better Immigration Enforcement Means Safer Communities

Written by Maryann Sinclair Slutsky Friday, 15 January 2010 00:00

In late November, columnist Robert McMillan wrote a piece entitled “A Story About One Illegal Immigrant,” which questioned the enforcement of federal immigration laws. Immigration enforcement policies affect the safety of all Nassau County residents, but perhaps not in the way that McMillan might imagine.
