Editorial: Congratulations To The Oyster Festival Committee

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi Friday, 19 October 2012 00:00

How can you write about something, over and over again? The reason is that things are never the same. Each happening is unique unto itself and tells another story.

We’ve written about the Oyster Festival since the second or third year. We remember a photo taken by then-Oyster Bay Enterprise Pilot editor Susan Francy-Jenkins of Irwin Tantleff, then owner of the Foodtown in Oyster Bay when he ran in a race held at the opening of the first festival. Today the Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor’s 5-K race has taken that slot.

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.

We hope you have read this week’s Oyster Festival special. We think it looks just great. We have to thank the Oyster Festival promoter Kerry Gillick-Goldberg for all her great help in providing the photographs and copy. It was a fun section to edit.

Thanks also go to our great sales force at Anton Newspapers and especially Angela Feeley who represents Oyster Bay.

Gregory Adami Knows Oyster Bay

Gregory Adami called to identify the photograph in the Sept. 27 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said the mystery picture is, “A bunch of chairs set out for the memorial at the 9/11 area at the entrance to the Western Waterfront area and Beekman Beach. There used to be a boat across from there. The WaterFront Center is going to re-do it. The building is where they recently restored the Christeen.”

He is of course, correct. The Ida May is currently being restored in Building J on West End Avenue. It will be open for viewing during the Oyster Festival. Drop by and see your friendly volunteers at work.

There has been a change of venue for the reunion of the Oyster Bay High School classes of the late ’60s and early ’70s. It is being billed as the Battle of the Bands and was to take place at the OBHS PAC auditorium but now will take place at the Italian-American Club on Oct. 6 from 1 to 4 p.m.
 

Editorial: Sagamore Hill Increasing TR’s Hamlet Presence

Friday, 28 September 2012 00:00

In 2015, as the restoration of Sagamore Hill is completed, as part of the project, the hamlet of Oyster Bay will have new signage telling visitors about Theodore Roosevelt-related locations in this area.

Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, the home of Theodore Roosevelt and a National Park Service site, has awarded a contract in the amount of $223,400 to plan, design and produce 35 new outdoor exhibits. The new exhibits, also called “waysides,” replace old and outdated ones dating back to the 1980s.

People Know Cruise Night

Billy Minicozzi recognized the mystery picture as the car show down by Taby’s diner.  He said, “They serve the best hamburgers on Long Island.”

Gregory Adami said, “It was taken at one of the car shows on Audrey Avenue by a person standing by the new town hall because I can see the Buckingham’s awning that is hanging over the sidewalk.”

 

Editorial: Looking For A Cure

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi Friday, 21 September 2012 00:00

Elfia Presta of East Norwich had one small request for the Oyster Bay Enterprise Pilot, this Monday, Sept. 17. That was to remind people about cancer and the need for a cure. Her prayer was, “Dear God, I pray for a cure for cancer. Amen.” She hoped we would pass along that prayer.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the American Cancer Society is gearing up for a walk on Jones Beach.

 

Editorial: Enjoy A Royal Experience — Locally

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi Friday, 14 September 2012 00:00
When we were in London several years ago we were amazed by how much America was featured on British television. They make the “pond” seem very small. We guess it has to do with our common language as well as our English cultural roots.

So, if you enjoyed watching Queen Elizabeth celebrate her Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 Olympics in London, you might want to put the events happening at NYIT on your calendar.
