As it is every year, Memorial Day was celebrated on Long Island with parades, ceremonies, and air shows. At Sterling Glen of Roslyn, it was a time for memories as two survivors of The Greatest Generation recalled the fading days of World War II and their role in that epic conflict.
Saul Kurzweil and Ben Glasser are Sterling Glen residents and World War II veterans. Both are popular among their fellow residents, but as is typical of men of their generation, neither spends much time talking about their wartime heroics.
Recently, Roslyn resident Ellen Pober Rittberg published a book about rearing teenagers, 35 Things Your Teen Won’t Tell You, So I Will. Now, another Roslyn resident, Dr. Andrew Adesman, has written his own book about parenting. Baby Facts, as the title suggests, is about child rearing, especially designed to dispel what the author terms as “dangerous myths that persist about the health of young children.”
A concert of sacred music by Long Island Composers is being held in memory of Dr. John Owens, longtime superintendent of the Roslyn Public Schools, co-sponsored by The Long Island Composers Alliance (LICA), The Maldeb Foundation, and The Prof. Edgar H. Lehrman Memorial Foundation.
The concert will be held on Sunday, June 13, at 5 p.m. at the United Methodist Church, Huntington/Cold Spring Harbor, 180 West Neck Road, Huntington. Admission is free. Contact: (631) 427-0326.
On May 12, the Roslyn Chamber of Commerce held a swearing-in ceremony for its new board members. The event, which was held at Sterling Glen of Roslyn, drew up to 100 people, plus Village of Roslyn Mayor John Durkin, various Town of North Hempstead dignitaries as the chamber continues to grow and expand.
Residents of the Roslyn School District went to the polls last Tuesday, May 18 and delivered no surprises on the school and library budget votes, approving such documents by comfortable margins. Voters, too, said “yes” to a Proposition 3, one that would authorize the Board of Education to expend $3 million from the Capital Reserve Fund for a continuation of the district’s ongoing capital improvement program.

When the Village of Roslyn Board of Trustees approved the 2010-2011 budget, they tried to keep spending to a minimum, but they couldn’t hold the line on taxes. In fact, the tax rate rose 15.9 percent.
The Village of Roslyn board of trustees recently approved a 2010-2011 budget. The BOT delivered another tight budget with very little appropriation increases. The budget came to $4,772,045 in spending, an increase of $191,277 over last year’s budget. As always, the bulk of the revenue came through real estate property taxes, resulting, this year, in a 15.96 percent increase in the village tax rate.
Elizabeth Kellogg is a challenger running for the Roslyn School District board of education. She issued the following statement on her candidacy:
“I am delighted to say that I grew up in Roslyn, my parents have lived here since 1966, and I am a product of the Roslyn schools. My husband Bob and I returned 16 years ago to reside here with the intention of giving my two boys the same quality of education that I received.
The Village of North Hills is studying a proposal to construct a 17,000 sq. ft. Cultural Center. The proposed center would be built on a two-acre site on the Long Island Expressway South Service Road, between New Hyde Park and Shelter Rock Road.
The proposal has run into opposition from some village residents, who stated their concerns at a recent village meeting.
