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.”
Residents of Roslyn Heights have banded together to block the destruction of a 112-year old house on 73 Warner Ave., one that they claim is on property that is only zoned for residential purposes.
Dolores Augustine, a resident of Roslyn Heights for the past 17 years, said that the property, if it allowed to be demolished, would be used by a local Porsche dealership for a parking lot.
Dani Kline has announced that she is resigning her seat on the Roslyn school board, saying she and her family plan to move from Roslyn soon and she will no longer be eligible to serve.
“It’s been an incredible experience, to be trusted by the community with such an important and meaningful role,” Kline said at a recent board meeting. “I have thoroughly enjoyed the connections, relationships and mentoring that has taken place with the administration and with my fellow board members. I have much to be thankful for.”
He is likely the oldest working reporter on Long Island, a bit slower in gait than he once was, a bit more stooped than in the past, but nearing 90 - his birthday is July 22 – Lou Sanders is still on the beat, making contacts, and keeping abreast of the most local of local news.
Sanders and his wife, Grace, founded the Mineola American in 1952, and although they sold the paper in 1992 to Karl Anton, owner of Anton Community Newspapers, and although Grace retired to their Mineola home years ago, Lou Sanders still reports for work at Anton headquarters in Mineola every morning.
Last December, after months of deliberation and compromise, the Town of North Hempstead board approved a plan to build a pool and tennis court at the long dormant Roslyn Country Club.
But action has been slow. At its January meeting, the board tabled a proposal to approve an agreement with Cameron Engineering Services for work on the pool complex. A town spokesman said that the town, at this time, was not prepared to enter into formal talks over a possible contract. However, the town, the spokesman said, would take up the issue with Cameron at a future meeting. In addition, the town is planning to form an advisory board for the new district, one that is likely to be comprised of Roslyn Country Club residents.
The accolades were swift and heartfelt as journalists learned of the death of former Roslyn Heights resident Stan Isaacs, a well-known New York sportswriter for more than four decades, who died last Thursday at age 83.
At the time of his passing, Isaacs was a resident of Haverford, PA, where he had moved to be near his grandchildren.
The Roslyn News and the Ellen E. Ward Clock Tower virtually share the same history. The Roslyn News was founded in 1877 and has published continuously since then. Nearly 20 years later, the Clock Tower—-as it is simply known today—-was first constructed. For years, The Roslyn News’s office stood on Tower Place, directly across from the Clock Tower. For the 100th anniversary of the Clock Tower, major renovation work on the famous structure was underway. Several years later, in 2006, the work was complete. Fittingly enough, copies of The Roslyn News were among the memorabilia selected by village officials and placed in a time capsule at the monument. It was also fitting that Angela S. Anton, publisher of Anton Community Newspapers, was a major force in helping to secure the private funding essential to Clock Tower renovation.
Emily Lipari has long reigned as Roslyn’s top long distance runner. Currently a member of the Villanova University track team, Emily has earned a national reputation, illustrated most spectacularly by a cover appearance on ESPN magazine. Emily was inspired by her older brother, Tom, also a long-distance runner. At the same time, Emily is proving to be an inspiration herself. Adam Sirota, an eight-grader at Roslyn Middle School, has also made great strides in the world of long-distance running. He recently completed his third New York City Half Marathon, running for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Of the 14, 527 runners in this legendary race, Adam’s time of 1:38:01 ranked in the top 10 percent of all runners. In addition, he raised close to $1,500 for the Fox Foundation.
The Roslyn area has many unique chara-cterisitics. At the top of the list has been its devotion to historic preservation. During the 1980s, for instance, then-First Lady Nancy Reagan singled out Roslyn as a model for such work.
Dalia Mairzadeh, a real estate agent with Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate, considers herself lucky to be in a profession that she is good at and one from which she derives such satisfaction. Recently, Dalia conducted one of the biggest sales in the history of Old Westbury.
As important to Dalia is her work with breast cancer patients. Three years ago, she was diagnosed with the condition. During that time, she went through normal procedures of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Now, Dalia is cancer-free, but that difficult experience gave a greater perspective to her real estate work.
