As a "last minute request," residents of the Pool Drive area recently asked the Village of Roslyn board of trustees if speed bumps could be constructed on that road, namely as a way to ensure traffic safety. The request was part of a long-running debate over safety issues resulting from the increase in traffic volume on Pool Drive that takes place during the summer months, when parents are picking up their children at the Shibley Day Camp.

Does Roslyn have a parking problem? Most people, especially its businessmen, would say yes. Indeed, it remains the most nagging issue in the village.

RHS Athletic Awards Speeches
Running is second nature to humans. With the first breath of life, we are given a sense of touch and a sense of sight. These qualities have been embedded into our anatomy.

Running has become a special part of my existence, and helps define who I am. It has given me courage and strength, and a new way to look upon life.
