TOB to Get First Dog Park

First Dog Park Scheduled for March in Massapequa, Sets the Stage for Others

The Town of Oyster Bay will soon get its first dog park. The promise was made by Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto at the end of the Oct. 18 board meeting. Town residents Peggy Heijmen of Oyster Bay and Michael Peress of Jericho spoke in favor of the dogs.

Peggy Heijmen, a resident of Oyster Bay and a member of Long Island Dog, a 5013(c)3 organization was there to ask for access to parks and beaches for Long Island dog owners. Ms. Heijmen said in June 2110 the group submitted a petition signed by 300 dog owners asking for a dog park in the town. She said they hoped when the SEA Fund was passed that the town would put some funds aside to provide a safe place for dogs to exercise. They suggested a potential site that was the former Liberty site, and is now known as the Allen Park Extension, a site in South Farmingdale; and one in Massapequa, Louden Avenue.

School Board Discusses District Climate Survey Results

Written by Karen Gellender Friday, 07 October 2011 00:00
While many topics were discussed, as per usual, at the most recent Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District Board of Education meeting on Monday, Oct. 3, the main focus of the evening was the results of the district’s school climate survey. Developed by the National School Climate Center (NSCC), the survey evaluated the perceptions of district students, teachers and parents in twelve areas, including Rules and Norms, Sense of Social and Emotional Security, and Respect for Diversity.

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.


State Senate Hearing Calls Out LIPA’s ‘Failure’ After Irene

LI Senators Say Investigation Needed Before LIPA Renews National Grid Contract

Senator Carl Marcellino questioned LIPA and National Grid representatives last week, introducing a State Senate hearing with wording that many on the island might use at this point: “What the hell happened?”

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.
