For years, East Hills resident Dr. Alan M. Richards has conducted his own private audiology practice in Manhattan. A decade ago, he decided to expand it to East Hills, where he currently conducts business on 70 Glen Cove Rd.
Richards told The Roslyn News that his “main goal in the practice of audiology is to provide his patients with the best diagnostic and rehabilitative hearing care available in a personal and caring atmosphere.”
“Hearing aids are a significant aspect of audiological practice,” he continued. “It seems that people are bombarded with all sorts of mailings about hearing aids and it generates a lot of confusion. It is my goal to provide patients with an unbiased and clear approach to hearing aid choices, and to take into consideration many of the factors, which influence choosing one instrument or another, or choosing none at all.”
Richards claims that hearing loss should be recognized as a major factor in the isolation of an individual from his family. Along those same lines, he believes that working closely with his patient’s family physician is key to establishing a good rapport with the patient.
In addition to audiology work, Richards, a graduate the City University of New York (CUNY), has also served as a professor of audiology at CUNY. He has authored two textbooks in the area of hearing science, plus numerous research papers in scientific journals.

Howard Kroplick was just settling in to his new position as North Hempstead’s town historian in April of 2012 when a phone call from a resident who found an old headstone led him into a comprehensive study of all 28 cemeteries within
the town’s boundaries.
Kroplick, an East Hills resident for 29 years, serves in the unpaid role as an advisor to the North Hempstead board, out of his longtime love of history. His exhaustive study of the area’s cemeteries has helped him complete a history of
North Hempstead that will be published in January, which will coincide with the 400-year anniversary of the discovery of Long Island, by Dutch explorer Adriaen Block. It was Block, according to Kroplick, who first identified Long Island as an actual island, not a peninsula as many believed back then. The 128-page book from Arcadia Publishing is the first ever written about North Hempstead.

For the time being, much of the Roslyn area is without representation on the Town of North Hempstead council. Recently, Thomas K. Dwyer, who has represented Roslyn on that body since 2002, announced that he would step down from the board while he is in negotiations with a Manhattan-based consulting firm.
Dwyer, who is the chief operating officer of Syosset-based American Land Services, would not identify the firm he is talking to, but he said that the new job would represent a conflict of interest with his work on the town board.
