Editorial: Keeping The Oysters And Clams In Oyster Bay

Friday, 04 May 2012 00:00

Currently, representatives of the Town of Oyster Bay are meeting with the North Oyster Bay Baymen’s Association (NOBBA) to eliminate a lawsuit that could cost millions of dollars. The members of NOBBA are the baymen, local residents, who ply the waters of the harbor for clams and oysters, and who are currently suing Frank M. Flower & Sons, Inc. (FMF), the Town of Oyster Bay (TOB) and the State of New York, claiming there are several problems in the management of the shellfishing rights in the bay, including moving the bamboo poles with red and orange flags using GPS positioning that define the FMF leased land of 1,830 acres out of a harbor total of about 2,500 acres. Had it not been for the work of FMF in stocking the harbor with shellfish when they created their hatchery in 1962, the bay would not be the great area for shellfishing the baymen currently enjoy using for their harvesting activities. There are other demands such as the cost FMF pays TOB for their lease, which NOBBA has brought up as they seek a negotiated settlement.

Gregory Adami Knows Oyster Bay

Gregory Adami called to identify the Mystery Picture in the April 26 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “It’s the first church, right next to the Oyster Bay Public Library. They share the same parking lot.” Mr. Adami also had a correction for the column. “Joan Adami is my mom, not my wife. I’m going to get a lot of kidding at the firehouse,” he said good naturedly.

Our apologies for the error. It is just nice to know the family enjoys guessing the mystery picture.

The Enterprise Pilot received a call last week from a reader, alerting us about a clam shack set up on the Western Waterfront. The caller was concerned that a building had gone up without any previous notice, and wanted information about it. Luckily, we had a story ready to put in the newspaper that we thought was the solution to the problem.

The caller said there was a clam shack 10 feet away from the pier on the Western Waterfront. He wanted to  know how it could have appeared without a DEC permit and said, “You can’t build within 400 yards of the water. There it is, with 10 picnic tables and umbrellas.”

Joan Adami Knows Oyster Bay

Gregory Adami called to identify the mystery picture in the April 19 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. Greg guessed it was Buckingham’s, which is an incorrect answer. He was however on approximately the same street.

A few minutes later, his wife Joan Adami called with the correct answer. She said, “It’s Nobman’s window. I could tell because of all the glass.”

Mike Rich Knows Oyster Bay

Mike Rich correctly identified the April 12 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot as, “John Specce’s office.” Correct! It is his landmark building on the corner of East Main Street and Pearl Street.

Tom Hogan Knows Oyster Bay

Former Oyster Bay Town Councilman Tom Hogan, Esq., identified the mystery mystery photo from the March 29 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. It was an especially hard mystery photograph and he vowed to identify it in last week’s column.

He called to say, “This is Tom Hogan. The past week’s mystery picture is the air vent and clean out for the septic system of 24 Audrey Avenue.” Now there is a man who knows his architecture. He is responsible for several wonderful buildings in Locust Valley on Birch Hill Road, near the rail road crossing.

It has been wonderful driving home while it is still light out, thanks to daylight saving time. What makes it especially beautiful has been seeing the trees along Route 106, made all pink with the rays of the setting sun.

We are always in such a hurry; we forget to see the beauty that is all around us.

Mystery Picture Still a Mystery

Mike Rich and Tom Hogan Know Oyster Bay

Lifelong Oyster Bay resident Mike Rich came to the rescue and identified the mystery-mystery picture in the March 22 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. Mike said, ‘It’s the top of the senior citizen’s center. I think it was designed by Ralph Ottaiano.” He is correct, although the current name of the organization is the Life Enrichment Center of Oyster Bay.

 

Editorial: Footloose and Fancy Free!

We truly enjoyed the Oyster Bay High School production of Footloose the musical, that took place on March 30, 31 and April 1, the day we caught the matinee. It was another great performance.

Part of the fun is recognizing the students who have already appeared in the pages of the Enterprise Pilot. That is what is so great about living in a small town, where you recognize the names of the children and instantly recall details about their parents, and sometimes, grandparents.
