Letter: Abandoned House With Raccoons in Manorhaven

Friday, 09 September 2011 00:00
I sent a letter by certified mail on August 9 addressed to Mayor Meehan and trustees about the abandoned house located at 11 Manhasset Avenue. The Nassau County website at: has a picture of this house taken on April 4, 2001 over 10 years ago showing the deteriorating condition from the roof to the peeling walls. This house has been vacant and abandoned for years and the presence of raccoons in this house adds to a longstanding problem.

Letter: Hurricane Irene

Friday, 09 September 2011 00:00
As a survivor of Hurricane Andrew, I know how devastating a hurricane can be. Thank you to the entire North Shore Alert Program, Port Washington Police, Sands Point Police, together with the LIRR and NYC Transit (Subway) system for taking the prompt initiative to close roads and trains for the well-being of the residents of Long Island and New York!

I am especially grateful to the emergency workers and volunteers in helping us get through this difficult time.

From the Desk of Senator Jack Martins: August 31, 2011

Don’t Fix What’s Not Broken

One size definitely does not fit all or at least it rarely does. It’s a lesson big government needs to remind itself.  Case in point would be the State Board of Education’s recent efforts to redesign how our teachers are evaluated.  

You may recall that New York was fortunately awarded $700 million from the federal government’s “Race to The Top” program, which seeks to improve student scores by holding teachers more accountable. The idea is a good one and certainly no one wants to turn away much-needed monies for our schools, but as usual, it’s in the implementation of good ideas that problems arise.


Letter: Response to ‘Alleged Theft of Funds From the Village of Port Washington North’

Friday, 26 August 2011 00:00

I wish to respond to the article published on the front page of last week’s Port Washington News titled “Alleged Theft of Funds From the Village of Port Washington North.”

First, the residents of the Port Washington North should be assured that the Board of Trustees and I are deeply troubled that this incident occurred and will do everything in our power to seek complete restitution of the alleged funds stolen and pursue criminal and civil actions against the company, Certified Payroll & Tax Services, LLP.


Letter: Senior Citizen Requests Shade at Pool

Friday, 26 August 2011 00:00

(Editor’s note: This letter was sent to Jon Kaiman, supervisor, Town of North Hempstead, and to the Port Washington News for publication.)

I’ve just read an interesting article in today’s (Aug. 15) Newsday regarding the town’s newly renovated Manorhaven swimming pool complex. The article covers some perceived pros and cons and mentions, in part, an opinion from you that criticisms are politically motivated, and from people who don’t like change.


Letter: Problems With the New Left Turn Lane on Main Street to Shore Road

Friday, 19 August 2011 00:00
As a newcomer to lower Main Street, I had not participated in the many years of discussion which led to the decision to add a left turn lane at the intersection of Main Street and Shore Road to alleviate the back up of traffic. After settling The Dolphin Bookshop into our new home with a front row seat on the drama which takes place daily in this active intersection, it became clear to all of us that the only thing preventing tragedy was the fact that traffic was moving s-l-o-w-l-y. It also became clear that moving the double yellow lines northward to accommodate a third lane would create other problems.

Letter: Response to ‘From the Desk of Congressman Ackerman’

Friday, 19 August 2011 00:00

(Editor’s note: This letter was sent to Congressman Ackerman and to Port Washington News for publication).

I was utterly dismayed at the despicable tone of your column “From the Desk of Congressman Ackerman” which appeared in the August 4 issue of Port Washington News.

You have stooped to the lowest level of decency by calling “thugs”, “enemies”, those who have a different point of view from yours. It doesn’t surprise me however, because you’re marching to the same drum beat of your kind, i.e. misguided Democrats who call the “loyal opposition,” “terrorists!” You have indeed fallen into the abyss of irrationality when you refer to the Republicans (without having the courage to name them) as ones who… “would destroy government.”


Letter: Mangano, Republican Party Should Pay Back Taxpayers for Failed Referendum

Friday, 12 August 2011 00:00

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano’s attempt to sneak through a massive tax hike was overwhelmingly rejected by voters on August 1st.

Mangano and the republicans in the legislature should never have tried to sell the people of Nassau on the bad idea of raising their property taxes to build Charles Wang a new Coliseum.


Letter: Response to Stanley Ronell’s Letter About Helicopters

Friday, 12 August 2011 00:00
(Editors note: Mr. Stanley Ronell did not name Roy Coniglio specifically in his letter. His direct quote was: “As a ‘pioneer’ who brought this issue into the open several years ago, I was mocked by a resident of Port, who shall remain nameless, but reading this, he’ll know who I am referring to, who professed to be an ‘aviation expert’”).

Having returned from a vacation this past Monday, I was catching up with the Port News and saw the most recent letter to the editor from one Mr. Stanley Ronell. His letter was yet another nonsensical diatribe about the danger of helicopters flying over Port. I would have chuckled and moved on, but since he chose to attack me personally in his letter, I felt compelled to respond once again.


Letter: In Memory of John Broza

Friday, 05 August 2011 00:00
On July 26, we who live and learn in Port lost one of our most ardent supporters: John Broza, longtime chairperson of the Schreiber English Department. John was larger than life, brilliant, talented, yet humble. He imbued his students with a love and understanding of Shakespeare that they will carry all their lives. Yet John was equally devoted to teaching incoming freshmen.

John’s vast knowledge went beyond books; he lived his subject. He quoted Shakespeare freely; he seemed to carry the entire Shakespearean repertoire with him. Shakespeare’s birthday celebration, which John began, became a grand affair, bringing the Bard to life for students.
