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.
Paul Rupp, Candidate for Mayor
Friday, 21 November 2014 00:00With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, Long Islanders taking mass transit may find themselves caught up in the mad dash of the holiday rush. But on the Oyster Bay line, riders are lucky in that they don’t experience the same level of stress over parking as some of the busier lines do.
“The Oyster Bay station never seems to get that crowded, but we’ll see what happens during Thanksgiving holiday when a lot of people come to visit families. I don’t think I’ll have a problem commuting, though,” says Michael Miniero, an Oyster Bay resident who regularly commutes to work on the LIRR.

What better way to celebrate a 100th birthday than by having a new room inauguration filled with local residents, live music and cocktails and scrumptious hors d’oeuvres. That is what happened at the Locust Valley Library Sunday evening, Nov. 9, as the community room was officially renamed the Matinecock Neighborhood Association Community Room. Proceeds from the event went to the restoration of the new room.
Speakers at the centennial celebration included Library Board of Trustees President Charles Brisbane, Library Administrative Director Kathy Smith, Locust Valley Historical Society President Herb Schierhorst and Matinecock Nation Chief Little Running Fox.

In the history of Oyster Bay High School athletics, no one has ever won a Girls’ Tennis New York State Championship. Celeste Matute and Courtney Kowalsky became the first when they won the 2014 New York State Doubles Championship in Latham on Nov. 3. What makes this tremendous achievement even more remarkable is that Matute is a junior and Kowalsky is a sophomore.
The girls, who are usually singles players, teamed up to take on the very best players in Nassau County and New York State. They won all 10 matches in the section XIII and NYSPHSAA tournaments and left Latham as the 2014 New York State doubles champions.

The conditions were as fierce as the competition earlier this month at Oakcliff Sailing’s Halloween Invitational.
Ten teams from the U.S., Canada and Bermuda battled 30-knot-plus winds, heavy rain and biting cold to see who would take top honors at Oakcliff’s final match racing event of the 2014 season.
