Dominica Libertini of Oyster Bay died on November 27, 2012,  at the age of 71. She was born in Glen Cove on December 2, 1940. 

Ms. Libertini joined the Life Enrichment Center of Oyster Bay on May 11, 2005. “She owned a hair salon in town and was a fantastic ballroom dancer. A full-figured woman, she was oh-so light on her feet. You couldn’t keep up with her,” said Nancy Farinaccio, LEC program assistant.

Leven Ashby Knows Oyster Bay

Leven Ashby of Hampton, Virginia called to answer the Nov. 23 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “It’s a photo of Raynham Hall. Is the debris in the photo the result of Hurricane Sandy?” He is correct.

Our apologies to Mr. Ashby for a past mystery picture column. His answer to the Nov. 9 mystery picture was credited to Tony Pilla in the Nov. 16 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. Our apologies to both gentlemen.

It’s amazing how events can change your perception of things. That is what happened as a result of Hurricane Sandy closing the local schools which changed this year’s Holiday Sharing Program.

For years we have covered the annual collection of food for the Holiday Sharing program the Tuesday before Thanksgiving at the First Presbyterian Church. The organizers from CSAC (the Community Social Action Committee) of the Interreligious & Human Needs Council of Oyster Bay kept telling us about all the schools that each year contributed to the program, but it never came across how vital that part of the project was.

Nikki Paris Knows Oyster Bay

When Nikki Paris, secretary to Bayville Mayor Douglas Watson was asked what the mystery picture in the Nov. 16 issue of the Enterprise Pilot was, answered, “It is a Sprint truck with a cell phone antenna parked near the Bayville Fire House on Bayville Avenue.”

She is absolutely correct. They were providing emergency cell phone service to customers after the storm. The mystery picture was taken by Gregory Druhak on Sunday, Nov. 4.

Oyster Bay is getting ready for the holidays. There is nothing like getting back to traditional things when life hands you a storm of trouble. Things start off on Saturday, Nov. 24, Small Business Saturday. Eva Regulski of Not Just Art is taking advantage of the American Express promotion for small businesses on Nov. 24. They offer $25 credit for their AmEx customers who shop on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and spend more than $40. She adds to the offer by giving her customers 10 percent off purchases.

Ewa Rumprecht of Think Long Island First is also involved with the program. She is offering an afternoon of free programs that day to bring in customers, as well as to announce the winners of their poetry contest.

Tony Pilla Knows Oyster Bay

Tony Pilla emailed this answer saying, “This answer to the Nov. 9 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot will be a big guess on my part, since it will be over 50 years since I have seen what I think I’m looking at in the picture. My gut tells me that it is a picture taken from West Shore Road and that you can reach that area by walking on the sand from Beekman’s Beach. The area in the background that juts out toward the water brings me to this conclusion.” He is correct, and the photograph was taken by Patricia Aitken, Friends of the Bay executive director.

Preston Rosh of East Norwich also recognized the area on Beekman Beach.

Antonius (Ton) Heijmen identified the mystery picture in the Oct. 26 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “This week’s mystery picture is of the parking lot behind Verrelli’s Market on West Main Street in Oyster Bay, my favorite place to buy my luncheon meats and rolls! Love those tomato plants in the parking lot and the old barn behind it!

“On a different note, I am the Senior Warden at Christ Church and I would like your readers to know that during the Oyster Festival, the church collected $5,000 from patrons that parked their car in the church’s parking lot on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

We met Professor Jack Mandel coming out of Radio Shack on Tuesday, Nov. 6. We were out looking to buy an old-fashioned telephone that plugs into the jack because although we got power on Sunday Nov. 4 at 5 p.m. our service kicked out on Monday night. Using the East Norwich Fire Department land line and after a lengthy call to Verizon, we had a lady advising us their engineers spotted a short circuit in one of our handheld phones. We did what she advised, disconnecting all the phones and letting the system reboot, and we got a dial tone. Still our cell phones were not working. That means another call to Verizon is needed.

Funnily, we had spotted Mr. Mandel leaving the Vernon School after voting, but he was in conversation with an old neighbor and we didn’t call out to him.

John Maloney Knows Oyster Bay

John Maloney aced the photo ID in the Oct. 26 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “The mystery picture is the back of Verrelli’s market and that is their garden. The picture is taken facing south. That is the old barn. The guy who owns it lives on Orchard Street. That is his weeping cherry tree and it has pink flowers in the spring. I live on Spring Street and I look over his garden,” said John Maloney.

That was just a lovely answer and we appreciate it.
