And that is what happened as the board voted 5-2 to approve the acquisition of the 7.2 acres of land on the Roslyn Country Club in Roslyn Heights. The cost of the acquisition is $7.5 million as the board also approved a bond for that same amount. Voting to approve the resolution was Supervisor Jon Kaiman, plus board members Thomas Dwyer, Lee Seeman, Viviana Russell and Anna Kaplan. Voting in opposition were Angelo Ferrara and Dina DeGiorgio.
This past April, Josh Levenstein, in preparation for his Bar Mitzvah at Temple Sinai, joined with Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity that recycles gently worn shoes. With an average of 700 million pairs of shoes thrown away by Americans each year, the effect on the nation’s landfills and atmosphere could be devastating. But by being redistributed through the charity’s international and domestic partners, these shoes get a second chance at life and give millions of children and adults much needed shoes.
Josh’s Soles4Souls shoe drive, which began on Mitzvah Day 2012, Sunday, April 29, and continued through the end of May, proved to be a tremendous success. Not only did Josh collect shoes to be distributed nationwide and internationally through Soles4Souls, but he also donated half of the collected shoes to The INN (The Interfaith Nutrition Network) to assist in their own efforts in helping people locally.
Daniel Pollack is one of the brightest young men to ever walk the halls of Roslyn High School. He is modest about his accolades and intellectual abilities, yet very enthusiastic to share. Danny’s selfless humanitarian nature is evident in the countless ways in which he contributes to the school community as a student leader, as exemplified by his winning the NCHSPA Sixth Annual Outstanding Student Leadership Award. In concert with his exceptional character, Danny is truly talented in both the academic and artistic arenas. Faculty and staff were more than impressed with Danny from the moment he entered the high school, and now, years later, we are even more taken with what an astonishing person he has become.
Four decades later, Sadowsky is still practicing innovative forms of art. Throughout July and August, he will have an exhibit of his latest work at the Syosset Library. Those works come from his private collection of three-dimensional scenes familiar to any New Yorker. They include Times Square at rush hour, the Staten Island ferry after the 2003 crash, the toll plaza at the Midtown Tunnel, black ice with skidding cars, a skate board park with moving skateboarders, the Meadowbrook Parkway with moving cars, the Roslyn Movie Theatre with optimum rewards free passes and a number of scenes from Coney Island: the Cyclone, the parachute jump, the Wonder Wheel, and moving bumper cars.

Roslyn High School 2012 seniors are still smiling from pleasant memories of their senior party, held last Thursday, May 31, in their school gymnasium.
The theme, “There’s An App for That,” remained a secret both from students and the community until the night of the party. Following tradition, a large committee of dedicated parents spent the entire school year creating an atmosphere of decorations to interpret the theme, and transformed the school gym into a Broadway-type setting.
Roslyn High School seniors Benjamin Kornick and Kevin Sherwin both won Grand Awards at this year’s INTEL International Science and Engineering Fair held recently in Pittsburgh, PA.
More than 1,500 students from about 70 countries, states, and territories spent the week in Pittsburgh vying for hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships and prizes. Only the top 25 percent of competitors received Grand Awards.
As with numerous towns and villages across Long Island, last summer’s Hurricane Irene had its own devastating effect on the Village of Roslyn Harbor.
The village, according to officials, suffered so much damage, including power outages, that many residents have purchased generators for their homes. Generators can make noise and so the board of trustees, at a May 14 meeting, adopted a new local law to deal with that situation and to articulate “supplementary requirements for certain uses [of generations] in residential districts.”
