Though he has to contend with Tom Suozzi to challenge Ed Mangano for the Nassau County seat, Democrat Adam Haber said he knows what will happen.
“I’m not going to get the nomination,” the Roslyn resident said in a sitdown with Anton Newspapers last week. “I’m going to run a primary. I’m going to do exactly what Suozzi did against [Thomas] DiNapoli. He didn’t get the nomination. He ran a primary and I’m going to win the primary.”
Roslyn resident Michael Pollack has always been a Billy Joel fan. Pollack is also an accomplished musician. Now an undergraduate at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, Pollack, in 2007, played a live gig with Richie Cannata, Joel’s longtime saxophonist. So, it was inevitable that Pollack would someday play with the Piano Man as he has always considered Joel as the major inspiration for his own musical creativity.
The opportunity finally presented itself last month when Joel was giving a concert at Vanderbilt’s Langford Auditorium. It is Joel’s habit, when he plays in such a smaller setting, to conduct a question and answer period with audience members, some of whom are likely to be budding musicians themselves. Pollack and his friends knew this would happen at the Langford forum and so he was prepared. When it was his turn, Pollack asked Joel if he could play onstage with him. Such requests are familiar ones and Joel readily obliged. Pollack promptly made himself comfortable at the Piano Man’s piano and chose the Joel classic, “New York State of Mind” as the tune the two would perform. As Pollack broke into the opening chords of the familiar song, whoops and cheers could be heard from the audience, many of whom were Pollack’s friends.
Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano traveled to Roslyn Harbor last Wednesday for the unveiling of a road marker commemorating Cedarmere, the home of William Cullen Bryant. But as soon as he stepped out of his vehicle, all the talk was about politics as Mangano was peppered with questions about Thomas R. Suozzi’s announcement that he too would run for his old job as county executive.
Mangano appeared ready for the inevitable questions, claiming that a possible rematch of the 2009 race would present a “stark contrast” between Suozzi and himself. Mangano criticized Suozzi for raising property taxes, while adding that his administration had cut such taxes. Mangano used the impromptu press conference to claim that his administration was taking the county in the “right direction,” adding that “for the first time, jobs are coming back” to Nassau County and that his administration had a proven ability to attract jobs.
The Albertson-based Henry Viscardi Center is legendary for assisting children with special needs in finding their way into adulthood. The center also owns several residential units near their property on I.U. Willets Road. One of them came in handy recently as it gave a Long Beach family devastated by Hurricane Sandy a real home to live in until their old one has been renovated.
When Hurricane Sandy wreaked its damage last fall, the Greengus family’s property suffered so much damage that the family of six was forced out of their house and into a hotel in Garden City, while they remained in negotiations with insurance companies. At the same time, the FEMA hotel assistance program was reaching its deadline and rentals were beyond the family’s means. Help came in the form of The Disability Opportunity Fund (DOF) and its president and CEO, Charlie Hammerman.

The Roslyn, Herricks, and East Williston Adult Ed program offers many opportunities. Some of the courses are unique and inspiring. A new course, Women of New York, has historian and guide Art Zuckerman taking participants on an “armchair tour” around the Island of Manhattan where they will learn of the histories of some of the most influential and creative women of New York. This two-hour lecture on March 11 is definitely not for women only.
