Written by Gary Simeone, Friday, 13 June 2014 00:00

At Tuesday night’s Oyster Bay-East Norwich Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Dr. Laura Seinfeld said that the board had received a letter from the Oyster Bay High School class of 1974 Reunion Committee members. The letter stated that a former classmate, Marie Colvin, a renowned news journalist who died in 2012, should be honored at the class 40th Reunion which will be held on Oct. 11 of this year.

“The committee members sent us a proposal to have the school library dedicated to the name of Marie Colvin and to have a framed portrait and plaque of her in the library,” said Dr. Seinfeld. “The board gave approval for this plan.”

Feeling Grateful In Oyster Bay

Written by Denise Trezza, Friday, 06 June 2014 00:00

Members of the Oyster Bay-East Norwich School district are feeling full of gratitude these days. The inspiration to think, feel and act with more gratitude stems from last month’s Special Education Parent Teacher Association (SEPTA) meeting in which Jeffrey J. Froh, PsyD presented his research findings in the field of gratitude.

SEPTA President and special education teacher Kevin McCarthy says, “Dr. Froh’s presentation on his newest book, Making Grateful Kids: The Science of Building Character, was a reaffirmation of how important being grateful as individuals can be. Dr. Froh was able to show, through his research, that the power of being grateful, and more importantly, teaching your children how to be grateful, can lead to a more positive, productive and fulfilling life. It was a wonderful topic that was well received by over 125 attendees. Our Special Education Parent Teacher Association was proud to present the program.”

Remembering The Fallen

Written by Stephanie Davy, Wednesday, 04 June 2014 00:00

Everybody loves a parade, even when the occasion calls for bittersweet memories of those who served our country but didn’t make it back alive. Memorial Day, May 26, was a perfect day for the parade. It was sunny and the air was perfumed with the promise of summer. Hundreds of people, young and old, lined the streets of Oyster Bay. Waving flags, they sat  with friends and family, eager to see their neighbors  and children proudly marching. Service groups like the Boy Scouts, the Catholic Daughters, Girl Scouts, the Italian-American Club, Knights of Columbus, the Masonic Lodge, Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce, Oyster Bay Lions Club,  US Coast Guard Auxiliary-Eaton’s Neck Division and more displayed their banners.


Fence Erected At Historic Mill Pond House

Written by Gary Simeone, Saturday, 31 May 2014 00:00

If you’ve driven by the old Mill Pond House off of West Main Street, you’ve probably noticed a big black, chain-link fence surrounding the property. The historic home, which was built in 1680 and recently ravaged by two fires, has seen additional security on its premises in the past few months and now is enclosed in an eight feet high chain-link fence. The $40,000 fence was installed in early May by Laser Industries of Ridge, according to Town of Oyster Bay officials.

“A permanent fence was built to deter encroachment onto the property,” says town spokesperson Kurt Ludwig. “We expect the new fence will do a good job of preventing any unauthorized persons from entering the property.”


Partners Create Pop-Up Art Gallery

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi, Friday, 30 May 2014 00:00

East Norwich has a new pop-up store open now through July, called the At-Home-Gallery. It celebrates a partnership between an emerging artist, Jill S. Krutick, and Zia Zaman, owner of Heirloom, an antique European and Oriental rug showroom, which he recently relocated to Locust Valley. Shaman offered Krutick the use of his store located at 6306 Northern Blvd. near the intersection of Route 106, opposite Chas. Rothmann’s Steakhouse. The two have partnered before at art shows.

“The opportunity to partner again is because Zia moved to a new location at 21 The Plaza in Locust Valley in view of the LIRR station (he just had his grand opening last weekend). Zia invited me to do a solo exhibition in his East Norwich gallery until his lease expired. What an amazing opportunity,” said Krutick.
