The Village of East Hills is pulling a fast one to permit the small fire station on Harbor Hill Road to be hugely expanded without any of the state-mandated environmental impact analysis or review logically required prior to granting permission.
It was also not clear to a county planning official we contacted that a review likely required by his agency was performed either, although he said his files were in disarray due to the officeís relocation in May.
I am writing to address the recent letters written by the Kushners (“Opposes Proposed Country Club Takeover,” The Roslyn News, June 16) as residents of Roslyn Country Club addressing the issue of a Town take-over of the club property.
Like the Kushners, our family has been longtime residents of the community. I have also been both an active member, officer, and member of the board of the civic association. In these roles I have been aware of numerous residents considering an offer to purchase the facility, both before and since Corona’s acquisition. None of these has ever been something of merit or based in any real business sense of reality.
A comprehensive study about to be released by the Suffolk County Department of Health Services brings grim news about Suffolk’s water supply. Its findings are of urgent concern to all Long Islanders.
First, some brief background. Back in 1987, the Suffolk County Comprehensive Plan revealed disturbing levels of contamination in Long Island’s aquifers—the sole source of all our drinking water. The findings served as a catalyst for countywide efforts to protect these precious supplies.
The League of Women Voters of Nassau County joins the LWV of New York State and NYPIRG (New York Public Interest Research group) in supporting Assembly Bill A8367, which would enact the Comptroller Campaign Finance Reform Act, to provide for public financing of elections for this statewide office.
Our Long Island high school athletes in track and field have proven to be among the best in New York State. It is with great disappointment that Nassau County’s Mitchel Athletic Complex, once considered “The World’s Biggest Stage, a showcase for the best competition the world has ever seen…,” [Goodwill Games] has let the field events deteriorate to the point of forcing our high school athletes and other famous high profile meets to seek other venues for their competition.
In their letter, Robert and Sheila Kushner malign both public officials and unpaid volunteers of the Roslyn Country Club Civic Association (RCCCA). They decry efforts to add a unique jewel to the Town park system as “deception,” suggest secret agendas and hint at unspecified conspiracies. Instead of the “facts” the Kushner’s articulate that they have “uncovered,” we urge you to focus on the unique opportunity before us—-and actual facts.
Nassau County is in dire financial straits and needs a stimulus to create jobs, which in turn will create revenue for Nassau County and help stabilize its woeful budget. I believe the New Nassau Coliseum Project will help.
In Nassau County, we are making concerted efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of you and your family in many different ways. Now that hurricane season is here on Long Island I would like to remind residents about the importance of assembling a “Go Kit,” in the event of a hurricane watch or warning.
On behalf of our entire family we want to take this opportunity to thank police officers Aprile and Ritger from the Sixth Precinct for the tremendous ability and professionalism they displayed on Wednesday, May 18 when our daughter delivered our grandson at our house after being sent home from the hospital and told the birth would be many hours if not days away. After being home for less than an hour it became clear that this child was going to arrive immediately. These officers along with members of the Roslyn fire companies were able to make a difficult situation seem routine. Their actions were certainly more caring and professional than the staff at the hospital an hour earlier. The good news is that both mother and child are doing fine.
I am Dr. Ralph Latham and I had a dental practice in Roslyn Heights for 30 years. I was sorry to hear of the death of Ray Jacobs, a grand fellow.
