Billy Minicozzi guessed the April 14 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot was the guardrail going toward the beach in Bayville. (An interesting guess, but not correct.) Of the April 21 photo, he correctly guessed it was a bunch of tents at a fundraiser for Oyster Bay Firemen. (That is getting closer to the answer but there is a better one.)
On a positive note, he said the Bayville Fire Company has renovated their meeting room, and have put down new linoleum! It’s always nice to see them keeping the building in great condition as they look toward to the future, including more parking space.
Over the time we have been covering the village police issue, Cove Neck opted out of the Oyster Bay Cove Police over a disagreement about taxes. They are now with the OBPD.
Editorially speaking the issue that pops out of this newspaper – more than others, is the issue raised at the Oyster Bay-East Norwich board meeting about letting someone go. The surprise happened when at the conclusion of the board meeting, the members voted to accept personnel actions which included the resignation of Michael Tweed, as of June 30. 2011.
Billy Minicozzi called to identify the mystery picture in the April 14 issue of the Enterprise Pilot as a guard rail by Shore Road, near a traffic light. While that was a good guess, it is not correct.
We got an email from Tony Pilla saying he couldn’t identify it. We looked at the photo and there are two, maybe three clues to ID the spot - so we are confident many of you know where the photo was taken.
They are looking for donations for their Chinese auction. They try to make money from the gifts and raffle items, while keeping expenses down to $75 per person.
There will be cocktails, great food, music and dancing too.
As we said before, joining the local civic associations is a great way to continue to make this great community thrive.
Dan Merritt was the first caller to identify the mystery picture in the April 7 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. “It was taken by Eckerd’s, up by Mario’s.” Mr. Merritt said, “I used to go to Sagamore Pharmacy and now I go to CVS. I’m new in town. I’ve only been here 15 years,” he said. You have to be from Oyster Bay to understand the joke. (People live all their lives in Oyster Bay but can still be “new” if their parents and grandparents aren’t from Oyster Bay.)
Reginald Butt called to identify the mystery picture in the March 31 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “It’s taken inside the American Legion Hall. It looks as if it is probably set up for a Memorial Day service. I know because I am the Past Commander of the Post and I set up the Memorial Day Program.” He is of course correct!Frank Zangari called to say, “It’s Post No. 4’s Legion Hall. I belong to it.” Mr. Zangari served in the Korean War.
The hamlet of Oyster Bay is really coming along. The Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce deserves some thanks. Driving down Pine Hollow Road on Saturday, we saw the little trees along the curb. The trees were planted by the Town of Oyster Bay as a result of the chamber requesting them. The trees are a welcome addition to the scene.
It is nice to think that in the future – we hope it is the near future - the asphalt sidewalks will be replaced by concrete and maybe more trees and brickwork.
In a way the announcment below is serendipitous. The Oyster Bay Civic Association and the East Norwich Civic Association have been working together to promote traffic safety in this area.
The police, we are being told are giving out tickets locally for speeding. The county has another initiative that should help the situation: reminding motorists about safety and school buses.
Matt Meng said after the East Norwich Civic Association meeting on March 24 that the March 24 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot was taken at an Oyster Bay Civic Association meeting. He recognized Legislator Judy Jacobs and Bob Martin in the photo. He is correct!
