Letter: Put The Shhhhh! In Schumer

Friday, 08 August 2014 00:00

Thousands of residents of Nassau County have had their lives, health, peace of mind and property values impaired by the FAA’s new flight patterns for Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark Airports.

It appears to Quietskies.net and other community activist groups that, based on the attitude of the FAA in dealing with us, that they are acting under political cover provided by Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY). We believe that Sen. Schumer’s voting record and consistent support of Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) (whose state is the home of Boeing as well as a primary manufacturer of RNAV equipment) were a primary reason for the Passage of HR 658 which sacrificed our well-being for the welfare of the airline industry. RNAV equipment is a technology that the FAA believes allows aircraft to fly narrow paths that concentrating noise. The technology allows for closer spacing that supposedly maintains or improves safety. The Senator and the aircraft and airline industries are more concerned about flying more and more aircraft into the area than about our quality of life.

 

Letter: Fight To Keep Wesley Open

Thursday, 07 August 2014 00:00

(Below is a copy of a letter sent to Nelson Kalombo Ngoy, pastor of the Community United Methodist Church of East Norwich)

My name is Jane Obando and it is with great sadness that I write this letter. Wesley has been a very important part of my sons’ lives this past year and we were distraught to learn that Wesley was closing.

My experience at Wesley has been nothing short of wonderful. Carolyn and the teaching staff were exceptional, patient, and very nurturing. I recommended Wesley to my sister, who soon enrolled her daughter in the summer camp program and the nursery program for the fall.

 

Letter: Remove The Cell Tower

(Below is a copy of a letter sent to Nelson Kalombo Ngoy, pastor of the Community United Methodist Church of East Norwich)

It has come to my attention that Wesley Nursery School was closed abruptly. My three grandchildren attended this school the past year and had a great experience. Both of my daughters had sent their children to another school prior to Wesley and changed schools based on a recommendation by one of their friends who sent her two sons to Wesley. Wesley provided a very nurturing environment which encouraged the children to learn with ease. I am a teacher myself and was very impressed with the education my grandchildren received at Wesley.

Chilled Greek, Taratori Summer Soup

Several years ago I attended the wedding of a friend who was married in a Greek Orthodox church in Dallas. It was very festive and beautiful but it was blisteringly hot and the church didn’t have air conditioning. I had never attended a Greek wedding, so I was surprised to discover that the ceremony could run 2-3 hours in length regardless of the heat in the sanctuary. But the post-wedding festivities put a smile on everyone’s face—especially with the assistance of the champagne and a thirst-quenching soup called Taratori in Bulgaria and Greece where it’s also known as tzatziki.

Recently I was reminded of this soup at another wedding event I attended when a cousin shared a similar recipe which is a favorite of her family. It was so familiar to me that I wanted to run right on home and make it myself. Food does that to people especially when the recipe is manageable and not too long and elaborate.

 

Letter: Prepare Your Children Well

Thursday, 31 July 2014 10:23

I am writing in response to Paul Manton’s letter “Are College Degrees Worth It?” (Weekend,” July 16-22)

I believe that for most high school graduates, college is the appropriate next step. While college educations can be very expensive, and accumulating debt is never a good thing, Nassau Community College provides an extremely affordable and valuable option.

Many public service jobs, including law enforcement and the FDNY, now require college degrees or a specific amount of college credits. Chances are that members of your family tree who received the pensions of which you wrote, were members of either NYPD or FDNY, and today would need at least a two years of college.

 

Editorial: Exterminate All The Brutes

Thursday, 24 July 2014 12:14

It can be difficult to function in the summertime. Oppressively humid air hangs heavy, transforming Long Island into “wet island.” Add disease-carrying winged creatures to the mix and we’ve got a reason to pray for a winter chill.

The horror ... the horror.

I am so very proud of our parks system and all we have to offer in our great county. This summer, we have an action-packed line-up. With a combination of quality entertainment and fun activities for the whole family, we look forward to seeing you out and about.

Program Changes At Senior Center: More! More! More!

Thursday, 17 July 2014 00:00

In our never ending quest to make the Life Enrichment Center the best it can be, and to provide Nassau County with reassurance that the opinions of our members are considered, we conducted an all important survey in June. Results of this survey will be seen in the center’s summer calendar.

Ideas and comments from our members help us further one of our major goals for this year: more before and after lunch activities to our “day’s menu.” In addition to maintaining two afternoons a week of bingo, we are planning the following activities once a week:

Vegetarian Lasagna, Mexican Style

I learned my Mexican history from TV, i must admit, from the stories many of us watched like Zorro, which have been re-written as movies in the last few years. I took a particular shine to Zorro in part because of my own name being similar or at least it seemed like it to a 5-year-old.

But all kidding aside, it is valuable to know that much that we call Mexican cuisine in this country is Spanish and is not authentically Mexican. However, this is changing since neither the Spanish nor the French were able to impose their cuisine on Mexicans, which was in fact vegetarian in large measure before Cortez arrived. The Spanish brought beasts of burden to farm and to raise for consumption. Cows, pigs, goats, sheep and chickens were all brought to the new world and in many respects imposed on Mexicans. But many indigenous people held on to their own cuisine within the regions where they lived. It came to be called Meso-American cooking with European, especially Spanish, influences.

 

Eating Healthy On Independence Day

Written by Oyster Bay’s Own Chef Alan Zox, Ph.D Thursday, 03 July 2014 00:00

In the United States, July 4th represents the founding of our nation and the holiday Americans recognize as their Independence Day. This remarkable event first took hold on July 2, 1776 when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence first proposed by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia. 

 

After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, explaining its decision which finally was approved on July 4th. Historians argue over whether it was

actually signed then or a month later. But in either case, the American experience continues to symbolize freedom in the 21st Century as most eloquently proposed by Thomas Jefferson and the framers of the Constitution. And what a remarkable event it was for Americans and others who value freedom and independence throughout the world.
