I am writing to clear the air of some vicious lies and rumors being spread throughout the village, by the current party in power, the Tip Party. They have been spreading false schoolyard rumors throughout local groups such as the library and Boy Scouts, that we plan on closing them down.
Not only is this untrue and laughable, but it is a great window into the mindset of the current administration. It is a clear message to voters that those who cannot run on their own record, must make small town mud-slinging their agenda. The Tip party has had their grasp on Bayville for far too long. Over 20 years, in fact. This is exactly the way they operate. Their intent on keeping their hold on Bayville to keep their family and friends in high-paying jobs is their sole driving force, not getting the best results for you, the taxpayer.
The party that I head and the trustees that run alongside me, the Bayville Revitalization Party, will work only for YOU the residents, in finding ways to make Bayville fiscally sound and beautiful once again. I vow to return Bayville back to where it should be, without compromising my integrity and my strong family values. It’s time the elected officials start serving the people again, and not themselves.
When elected, I look forward to working alongside and with you to get things done properly. Please ignore the rumors and lies from the party that has clearly demonstrated their lack of ideas and management skills for too many years. Please visit our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/Revitalizebayville or contact me personally at 516-628-1915 to get the true facts on how, together with all residents, we can get Bayville working again.

The installation of a cell phone antenna in the steeple of the Community Methodist Church of East Norwich has outraged parents, causing them to seek alternative preschool options for their children and resulting in the closing of the nursery school held at the church. The decision to close the school was announced last week, and the school shut its doors on the summer camp on Tuesday.
“We knew this might be coming, since the numbers were so low, but we didn’t know the summer camp would close so soon,” says Carolyn Wilson, who has been teaching at the Wesley United Method Church Nursery School for 35 years.

History will be made on Friday as Nassau Country Club opens its grounds for the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, playing host to the tournament which was last played on its greens 100 years ago. The club has been planning for the tournament for the past eight years or so, when the club’s president and mayor of Mill Neck, Peter Quick, says they first discussed having it return to Nassau for the 100 year anniversary. The tournament, conducted by the United States Golf Association (USGA), will have 156 women from all over the world competing for the Robert Cox Trophy and the title of national champion, including twin sisters Jennifer and Kristin Coleman, whose grandfather is a member of the club.
For the Coleman sisters, 21, of Rolling Hills Estates, CA, the tournament will almost be like a homecoming: they began playing golf at age 5, and have played Nassau Country Club a number of times over the years while visiting their grandfather, Daniel Coleman, who lives in Glen Cove.
