Do You Hear the Carousel Music?
Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto summed up his thoughts as the hearing on the proposed carousel for Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park ended at about midnight on Tuesday, May 23. Several people left before speaking, but the supervisor said that the town welcomed communication on the issue by letter, fax or email. He said, "What we are doing is taking all information and will deliberate on where all this goes." He added, "What I'm happy about especially is when both sides speak so eloquently. When I asked MSA [Main Street Association] if they felt so passionate about the carousel would they be agreeable to a meeting for the sides to present their cases. They didn't blink an eye and did it."
Bayville Fences in Raynham Hall
This summer, the Incorporated Village of Bayville will be helping Raynham Hall Museum and the Town of Oyster Bay to erect an historically accurate reconstruction of a picket fence and entrance gate in front of the landmark house museum on West Main Street in Oyster Bay. The fence will be handcrafted, following examples of 18th century fences and gates. The new fence will be supported on locust posts as Colonial period fences originally were.
A few weeks ago I wrote about how to dock a boat. I received an email from a resident wanting to know how to undock a boat safely. The person had been trying to undock with the wind pounding against the side of the boat that was opposite the dock and she had a hard time getting away from the dock.
