Proposed Cell Phone Tower for Landmark Will Not Be Considered

Some members of the Landmark LP Board felt that there was sufficient concern about safety issues for the residents in the building and in the surrounding community given that cell towers are a new technology and there is uncertainty about their affects on human health.
Are Schools Making Our Children Sick?
"Patti Wood leads the way," said both NYS Assemblyman Tom DiNapoli and the Adelphi University representative opening the Children At Risk symposium at the Adelphi University Center. They were referring to Patti Wood's work as executive director of Grassroots Environmental Education, located in Port Washington but with far-reaching effect. Grassroots' goal is to eliminate children's exposure to the chemicals in pesticides, cleaning products and other materials and liquids found in school buildings and grounds. Also, Grassroots lobbied for the current state law forbidding the idling of school buses, which helps reduce the diesel fumes children inhale. Grassroots also tries to educate people on how to eliminate harmful chemicals in their homes and on their grounds.
On The Bay
While many of us are recovering from the holidays, there are some families who are spending a rather non-traditional holiday week. For some, the week off from school and work means skiing in New England or out west, taking a trip to Europe, or traveling to warmer climates. But for some sailing families, specifically those with junior sailors, it may mean heading south to participate in the International Youth Orange Bowl Regatta. Elizabeth Whipple, daughter of Chip and Lynne Whipple, Manhasset Bay YC, will be competing in the 420 class.
