Normally I try to limit the subject of these editorials to locations strictly within the Plainview-Old Bethpage area, however Variety Child Learning Center in Syosset is obviously important to this community as well. You may not have been aware, but the VCLC building suffered massive flood damage earlier this summer, most of which was not covered by insurance. Fortunately, local carpenters pitched in to repair the worst of the damage so the school could still open for the 2012-13 school year, but there are still more repairs to be done.
If you’d like to support the children of VCLC, mail monetary donations to Variety Child Learning Center at 47 Humphrey Drive, Syosset, NY 11791, Attn: Development—Flood Appeal. You can also donate online at www.vclc.org.

The Plainview Water District Board of Commissioners Joel Kessler, Andrew Bader and Edward Shulroff recently visited Plant No. 1 at Manetto Hill Road to review the progress of the district’s pavement restoration project and to check heightened security measures. The construction at Plant No. 1 is part of an extended series of capital improvements designed to enhance efficiency and productivity within the district’s facilities.
“We’re very pleased at the progress we continue to make at the Plainview Water District throughout the past 12 months,” Kessler said. There are a variety of ongoing projects, he added, and it is important that “my fellow commissioners and I thoroughly oversee each capital improvement” to ensure continued high-quality service.

“It has been an honor to serve the Plainview-Old Bethpage community — while some may not have always agreed with my positions on various issues, I trust nonetheless that I was considered honest and principled,” Cepeda said.
