Mystery Picture: October 9, 2012

Billy Minicozzi Knows Oyster Bay

Billy Minicozzi said the mystery picture in the Oct. 4 issue of the Enterprise Pilot is of the parking lot at TR beach. He is correct. On a sports note, Billy said he is glad the referees are back in football. “They call them zebras,” he said, because of their striped jerseys. And as a current news item he added, “ The Bayville Haunted House begins on Friday, Oct. 12.”

If you haven’t seen the work of the Bayville firefighters and friends as they create a haunted house, do take the time to go and visit it. It is worth your time.

Marian Liskowicz called to say, “The photograph was taken at the Theodore Roosevelt Park in the area where the clammers come to get their boats.” Correct and well explained.

Gregory Adami said, “You couldn’t get any easier. The picture is the main entance to Roosevelt Park where you drive your car in. It’s looking at the old baseball field. The new field has a soccer and football memorial at each corner as well as a flagpole. The picture was taken standing where the Atlantic Steamer boathouse is located. The picture was taken on a cloudy day.”

Mr. Adami said he is going to the Oyster Festival. He said, “I am going to try to enter the oyster eating contest. I’ve been wanting to do that for years. I’m not practicing. I have a generous stomach and I can slip those things down in seconds flat.”

The photo, FYI: was taken on Sept. 11, 2012, as we left the 9-11 memorial ceremony.

Maddie Askeland, a student at the Vernon School, correctly identified the mystery picture as, “The parking field in Theodore Roosevelt Park, looking at the turf field.” Maddie has played on the turf field and she will be playing there during the Oyster Festival. She is one of the youngsters who won the NFL Punt Pass Kick competition hosted by the Oyster Bay Rotary Club on Sunday, Sept. 23 at the East Woods School. She will be competing in the Island Sectional Championships, to be held on Sunday, Oct. 14, at 10 a.m. on the TR Park turf field. Sectional winners will advance to the team championship competition, to be held at Met Life Stadium during a Jets pregame ceremony.

Great good luck Maddie!

Belle Santora also called and identified the mystery pictures as the entrance to TR Park.

Preston Rosh of East Norwich also called with the correct answer, that it was at TR Park and near the playing fields.

And while we are talking about the Oyster Festival, just FYI: while talking to ASFC ex-chief Frank Ozol, he said the company is active in the Oyster Festival. “We will be standing by for any emergency, as we always do. Also, we go around and check the propane tanks being used at the food court to be sure they are not leaking. At the ASFC house on East Main Street, we will be selling chili hot dogs and clam chowder. Both are made in the firehouse. Home cooking by the crew,” said Mr. Ozol.

By the way, we are not including any recipes this week. Our escarole soup with garbanzo beans needs another try before we are satisfied. It was a learning experience. But, more recipes are welcome.

Keep reading the Enterprise Pilot and calling for the mystery picture.

News

Some people deserve a long obituary: in a way, it is a tribute to the number of people’s lives they have touched, so for Dottie Brandt, it is a given. A long line of mourners stretched down the street from the Francis P. DeVine Funeral Home, in Oyster Bay, where Dorothy R. Brandt, known to everyone as “Dottie,” was laid to rest, soon after her death on Friday, Sept. 12.

Dottie was a beautiful woman that age couldn’t change. When your warmth, spirit and love come from the inside, it keeps the outside looking bright and fresh. Dottie was always smiling, full of energy and always willing to help people.

The music was rocking and everybody was dancing on Friday, Oct. 3 in the St. Dominic High School gymnasium as the school hosted its Fall Ball dance. The event included gregarious kids from St. Dominic’s dancing and socializing with 20 disadvantaged children from St. Christopher-Ottilie Family of Services in Sea Cliff.

“St. Dom’s is very active with St. Christopher-Ottilie during the school year,” said Janice Seaman, who was the party coordinator and one of many volunteers at the dance, which ran from 7 to 10 p.m. “This was the first time, though, that St. Dom’s invited the kids from St. Christopher-Ottilie to their school for a dance and it is a great way to bring some normalcy into these children’s lives and show them what a school function is like.”

5- and 6-year-old Peanuts

The Little Generals (Peanuts) stepped out into the cold Sunday morning ready to give the home crowd a show as they battled the Bellmore Braves, and that’s just what they did as the Generals beat the Braves 14-7. The teams battled to a first half tie as the Generals’ touchdown came on a 26-yard run by Kody Gehnrich, thanks to great blocks by John (Jack) Grace and Jack Symanski.

In the second half, where the Generals are usually at their best, the defense shut out the Braves as Rodney Hill, Jr. and Brandon Babel stepped in on the defense line to create a great push to allow Francesco Allocca to make eight tackles. The offense got a big boost with Allocca being allowed to play RB after playing QB the past two games, and boy did he respond behind great lead blocking from Luca Granito. Allocca carried the ball nine times for 60 yards and a TD coming on the last play of the game.

The Diane Whipple Foundation with the cooperation of Manhasset PAL, Manhasset School District and St. Mary’s High School Athletic program has announced a premier College Division I Women’s Lacrosse Scrimmage day on Saturday, Oct. 18.

Competing in this great event will be Columbia, Fairfield, Michigan, Sacred Heart, Stonybrook, UCONN, UMASS, and USC.
