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.

Georgia Cagney Knows Oyster Bay

Georgia Cagney called to identify the mystery picture in the Sept. 6 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It’s the parking lot across the street from the Life Enrichment Center (LEC). It is behind the houses on East Main Street.” When Ms. Cagney, a member of the LEC of Oyster Bay, was told she was correct, she said, “I never get the pictures. I’m so happy.” We’re happy for her. We were concerned that the photo would be too hard to identify.

Billy Minicozzi called and said, “It’s the parking lot behind Nino’s.” On a sports note he said the Jets would be playing Buffalo on Sunday, Sept. 9.

Billy Minicozzi Knows Oyster Bay

Billy Minicozzi called to identify the Aug. 30 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “It’s people playing volleyball at Theodore Roosevelt Park.” That is correct.

The newspaper had an early deadline because of the Monday holiday, so he was the lone caller, and always a welcome voice to hear. If you remember, there was extensive coverage of beach volleyball during the Olympics, but at TR Park you don’t have to wear a bikini. It’s a ‘dress as you come’ event.


Editorial: Steps From Ground Zero

In commemoration of 9/11, the Brooke Jackman Foundation (BJF) is commemorating its 11th anniversary with their 3rd annual read-a-thon. The nonprofit organization named for Brooke, an Oyster Bay High School alumna, promotes literacy for at-risk children in the greater New York area. The event, A Celebration of Literacy and Hope will be held on Saturday, Sept. 8, from noon to 1:30 pm, just steps from Ground Zero at the Winter Garden in the World Financial Center in lower Manhattan. Hosted by Arts Brookfield, this free public event for children and families will celebrate the positive, transformative power of literacy.

The 11th annual Read-a-thon will also debut readings from a newly published collection of stories and illustrations from the kids in the foundation’s programs, called ABC, My Family & Me: An Alphabet Book by the Kids of the Brooke Jackman Foundation. All proceeds from the sale of the book support the work of BJF.

Emma Guevara Knows Oyster Bay

Emma Guevara emailed her answer to the Aug. 23 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot. “The picture is of the Easter egg hunt at Raynham Hall.” She is exactly right. The museum holds an annual Easter egg hunt for children in their Victorian Garden.

School is opening on Thursday, Aug. 30 this year, so we would like to wish Emma and all her fellow students a great year.

Billy Minicozzi Knows Oyster Bay

Billy Minicozzi had a good answer for the Aug. 16 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot. He said it was taken at the Oyster Bay marina. While not quite what we were looking for as a location/answer, it is an accurate identification of the spot — more or less. If you have a more precise location we would appreciate a call at 403-5104.

Billy was also pleased to say that last week, “The new Stop & Shop finally opened up.”


Editorial: I Never Saw A Poem Lovely As A Tree

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi Friday, 24 August 2012 00:00

Joyce Kilmer wrote a poem we learned in high school, saying something like, “I never saw a poem as lovely as a tree...” that ended... “only God can make a tree.”

Listening to the Town of Oyster Bay hearing on amending their tree ordinance we noted that no one was mentioning that trees are more than a landscape addition and/or problem. They are living machines that give us oxygen. We plant them to keep the planet alive and filled with life-giving oxygen. Before the planet could thrive it needed that cushion of oxygen to keep the sun from burning us to a crisp.

Tony Pilla Knows Oyster Bay

We wondered if anyone would recognize the mystery photo in the Aug. 9 issue of the Enterprise Pilot, but we felt we left enough of a clue for someone to ID it. We were delighted to find an email from Tony Pilla with the answer.

“I am going to take a wild guess,” said Tony Pilla in an email.  “The building in the window looks like the railroad station, so the picture must have been taken from a building or house across from the station.  It’s been many years since I have been there so I don’t know what buildings are across from the station.  For years, Coil Winding was across from the station but I don’t know if it is still there.”


Editorial: It’s A Wonderful Life!

It was great fun to welcome in the new Stop & Shop. We visited the store on Sunday, for what turned out to be lunch.

We started with a just-made slider. Walking into the produce department we were offered a salad. We chose field greens, blue cheese, blueberries, strawberries and a drizzle of dressing. A young lady had a wheel  to spin for gifts from Boar’s Head. We won a pedometer but spotted a pink Boar’s Head cap. “We’ll be back to try for the hat,” we said. She smiled for a moment and then handed us a hat saying that it matched my shoes. It does.
