Editorial: Don’t Pick on the Oyster Festival!

Friday, 30 September 2011 00:00
Unfortunately when Island Harvest Advisory Board member Loretta Sehlmeyer wrote a letter to the editor that was published in the Newsday September 22 edition, the newspaper used a photograph of the Oyster Festival oyster eating contest with the Explore LI cover story about competitive eating as an example of their headline, “Gluttony in bad taste.”

Ms. Sehlmeyer wrote in her letter to the editor, “As soon as I saw the Explore LI cover story “Fast Food. The voracious world of competitive eating [Sept. 13), I knew I’d be writing this letter. I am repeatedly disgusted when I see stories on this most repulsive ‘sport’.”

Belle Santora Knows Oyster Bay

The delightful Belle Santora called about the picture in the Sept. 15 issue. She said, “I just turned the page of my copy of the Enterprise Pilot and saw the mystery picture. I was there the day this man was painting at Beekman Beach. Arthur and I were talking to him.”

She added, “I knew the picture last week but I didn’t get around to calling but that’s all right - other people got it.”

 

Editorial: Please Make the History Filled Trousdell House Dream - a Reality

Friday, 23 September 2011 00:00
It was a great opportunity to experience the potential of the Trousdell House at the Thank You Reception for supporters on Sunday Sept. 18. The North Shore Land Alliance and the Oyster Bay Preservation Roundtable thank you party was for people who responded to their invitation to a “Shadow Ball.” The tongue-in-cheek event invitation said the Shadow Ball would be held “Thursday evening, April 35, in the Ballroom of the Oyster Bay Opera House, 15000 Cove Road, entrance via the Oyster Bay to Rye Bridge.” It explained a total of 600 cards of admission at $100 each (or 60 for $1,000) were available for this event to raise funds that are needed for emergency repairs to the Adelia & Cornelius McCoon House (a.k.a. the Trousdell House or Hillside). The several names for the house indicate the many layers of history the house encompasses.

Paul Keller Knows Oyster Bay

Paul Keller of Bayville identified the mystery picture in the Sept. 8 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “It’s the rear of the building on Audrey Avenue and Spring Street. It is opposite Al Dente which is across the street.”

He is correct. The photo was taken the Sunday after Hurricane Irene and shows the water still draining out of the parking lot.

This past weekend, Sept. 10 and 11, was a tribute to the best of man and a reminder of the worst depths man can descend into.

The Atlantic Steamer Fire Company arranged to obtain a piece of the World Trade Tower which is now in a beautiful memorial garden next to their marine facility at the Theodore Roosevelt Park. It is a wonderful addition to Oyster Bay and for the world. You must go see it.

Belle Santora Knows Oyster Bay

Belle Santora identified the Sept. 1, mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It’s the East Norwich sign on Route 25A.” As for the Aug. 25 photo, she said, “It could be anywhere.”

Interestingly, we didn’t use the photo after it was taken because we thought it was too obvious a location. Now we see we were wrong, but we are still hopeful to have it identified.

Karen DeVine-Taglia is seeking the community’s help as she takes on the NYC Marathon. She said in a letter to friends and supporters, “Ten years ago after my daughter Francesca was born I began running to fit back into my suits! Well 10 years later I am an addict!

Editorial: Good Bye Irene, Good Bye...

We drove down to Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park on Saturday, Aug. 27 to see how the new sports complex was doing. At the Oyster Festival kickoff, Len Rothberg, event coordinator said, “We have a new [Oyster Festival] layout, which will make the flow in the Theodore Roosevelt Park easier. We have a new food court area.”

During the fall there was some concern on how the town’s plans for new multi-sports field was going to impact the Oyster Festival, but as things developed there was optimism and finally joy in the voices of the presenters. Things were going to work as you can see the way Len Rothberg expressed it.

Mystery Picture Remains a Mystery

Billy Minicozzi guessed that the Aug. 25 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot was, “Roosevelt Park during a snow storm.” That was not the answer but we were surprised there were no other takers because we were afraid the picture was too easy. Although we should mention that our phone in Mineola was down on Monday, as we went to press so there may have been some correct answers.

 

Editorial: The Bumpy Road of Politics

If you have read the story about Terrance Kelly and his petition saga, you as well as we now have a grasp of how important our signature is.

When someone shows up at your door to have you sign a petition it is actually a legal document and if you don’t write your signature in its accustomed way – it can be dismissed.

Who knew?

Now Terrance Kelly knows as do our readers!

Actually over our years of covering the town, we have seen a petition signed with names that appeared to us to have been gotten at a political party meeting – with people from areas outside the petitioning site on the list.
