Veterans Cancel Pearl Harbor Event

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi Friday, 08 November 2013 00:00

This year, Oyster Bay will not hold its traditional Pearl Harbor Day commemoration held annually on Dec. 7, at the waterfront at Theodore Roosevelt Park. American Legion Commander Reginald Butt, Jr. explained the reasons saying, “Last year there was a total of 42 veterans attending and 25 of them were from the Bayville Post and there was a 125-piece band from the Plainview Old Bethpage School District. Last year, the band outnumbered the veterans and with the problems the Bayville American Legion is facing, they might not attend this year.”

Last month a list was released by Newsweek ranking the top high schools in America. Oyster Bay East Norwich High School showed up as number 425, making it 64th in the state. 

 

“Rankings such as those by Newsweek provide important measures of district progress as we strive to truly maximize each student’s personal potential for their futures,” says Dr. Laura Seinfeld, Superintendent of Schools, Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District. “We continue to design and refine learning opportunities focused on excellence and equity in alignment with the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Board of Education’s first goal for the 2013-14 school year: ‘to continuously improve curriculum, instruction, and assessment in order to enhance learning opportunities and achievement of all students.’”

 

Dr. Dennis O’Hara said, “We, at Oyster Bay High School, are proud of this ranking.  We strive to provide our students with the best education and overall experience possible.  Newsweek’s ranking is an indication of the effort that is put forth by our students, faculty, administration and Board of Education.  It is also reflective of the supportive partnership we enjoy with the community.  There are many great things happening at Oyster Bay High School each day. Being ranked by Newsweek magazine among the nation’s top high schools is just one of them.”

Civic Group Welcomes Candidates

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi, oysterbay@antonnews.com Thursday, 31 October 2013 00:00

Good things happened at the East Norwich Civic Association’s last meeting of the year on Oct. 24. The North Oyster Bay Baymen’s Association presented Mel Warren with a check for $500 and David Gugerty added one for $100 to help the Friends of Mel Warren fund his van and motorized wheel chair. Representing the Baymen were Eileen and Joe Finke and Jack Chale. Finke said the funds were earned at the Oyster Festival where they sold lobster dinners for $60. He said the North Oyster Bay Baymen’s Association is unique in that although they all compete, they keep together as a group and he credited that to their working together at the food court in the Oyster Festival over the years. They raise funds that they give to charity, usually for the Matthew Fetzer Fund for children and their families fighting cancer, but for other worthy causes: all done quietly without photo ops.

The money is given through the Friends of Mel Warren, under the auspices of the ENCA. Laine Gunther, ENCA treasurer said so far the group has raised $29,975.58 toward Mel’s new motorized equipment.

Cathy And Stretch

Written by Lyn Dobrin, oysterbay@antonnews.com Saturday, 26 October 2013 00:00

Since she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, Cathy Scibelli of East Norwich has been on a journey of discovery; accompanying her is a three-inch tall teddy bear named Stretch.

Stretch became an important part of Cathy’s life one day when she was about to leave her house for treatment. She glanced over at her collection of stuffed bears (from the days she wrote a column called “Travels with Teddy” for Teddy Bear Review magazine) and the tiny brown bear on her bookshelf caught her attention. She tucked him into her purse. From then on, Stretch, named by Cathy’s husband because of the bear’s long legs and arms, accompanied her to all her appointments and treatments.

For about the thirtieth time, Mel Warren worked as the Arts & Crafts coordinator for the Oyster Festival. This time he did it in a high tech way. While the public was invited to attend the Oyster Festival Oct. 19 and 20, Mel and the other organizers were busy on Thursday and Friday as tents, fences, picnic tables and vendors arrived.

Friday, Mel Warren was tooling around in his new electric wheelchair checking out the work he had done preparing the festival layout for the food court and corporate sponsors.
