On Sunday, Sept. 25, the skies cleared and the excitement mounted as The Manetto Hill Animal Hospital hosted their 2nd Annual Paws 2 Love Adoption Festival and Benefit.

After much discussion last year, the survey was administered as part of a plan to improve the school climate, in part due to concerns about bullying within the district, and in part due to the need to make changes in accordance with the requirements of DASA (Dignity For All Students Act), enacted by the state legislature in 2010.
After Tropical Storm Irene left many Long Island residents, municipal facilities and even emergency responders without power for days, and some for over a week, New York state senators held a hearing, first, to determine what went wrong in LIPA and National Grid’s storm preparedness plans and, second, to call for a delay in the renewal of the contract between LIPA and National Grid until an independent review can be done to see if Long Island could be better served by a different arrangement.

An ice hockey jersey, a set of Irish bagpipes, a beloved pair of Timberland boots are just some of the personal mementos that once belonged to the 18 active Nassau County firefighters who perished on Sept. 11 and are now part of a new exhibit held in Garden City.
Last week, the Nassau County Firefighter’s Museum opened its new 5,000-square-foot exhibition, entitled “Lives of Service; Celebrating the Heroes of September 11.” While many 9/11 exhibits are taking place throughout New York this month, Museum Director Alana Petrocelli explained that the Nassau County Firefighter Museum’s exhibit focuses on the personal lives and stories of the local residents who died on that tragic day. A year in the making, the monumental project was the brainchild of Firefighter Museum President Angelo Catalano.
Nassau County Legislator Judy Jacobs (D-Woodbury) attended “The People’s Hearing” on the situation with the elimination of L.I. Bus and the Privatization of the system.
