Editorial: It’s A Wonderful Town/Life

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.

Gregory Adami Knows Oyster Bay

Gregory Adami called about the mystery picture in the Oct. 19 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “I have the same exact shot that this person has so I knew it. I’ve taken the Mill Pond in Oyster Bay. The person is standing on West Main Street taking the shot. The good old Mill Pond. I’ve gone fishing there. In the ‘80s I lived off Lake Avenue and caught little brown trout, tiny little ones.” 

The DEC stocks it at the beginning of the fishing season on April 1.

We heard from Paige Dawson that the recent visit to the Old Orchard Museum was just great.

Paige Dawson of Laffey Associates attended the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours meeting. It was held at Sagamore Hill National Historic Site at the Old Orchard House Museum. She said, “It was swell- —with some of the items from the main house displayed there. It was catered by Mark Fox of Canterbury Ales. The food was enjoyed by all, as the shrimp and oysters and sliders were all but decimated.”

Belle Santora Knows Oyster Bay

“That’s the building where they repair the wooden boats,” said Belle Santora, just as we were finishing a “mystery-mystery” picture column. She is correct.

We were just going to say, “In this case we understand that it is a difficult photograph to identify in the Oct. 11 issue of the Enterprise Pilot, but there are clues there. No mystery picture goes in without some way for a person to have a good way to guess what it is, to give those little gray cells a workout, as Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poiret would say.”


Editorial: Congratulations To The Oyster Festival Committee

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.

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.
