I want to share a story with you about a courageous little girl named Julia who lives in my hometown of Glen Cove. Julia was born with a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis. The disorder causes tumors to grow on nerves. NF will often lead to other conditions such as cardiovascular problems, chronic pain, blindness, deafness, bone defects, disfigurement and many other complications. Treatment options include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.
Either you like to gamble, or you don’t.
I like to gamble a little bit. When I go to Las Vegas or Atlantic City or Foxwoods, I have an automatic cutoff machine. When I lose too much money, I get dour and depressed. I want to leave and go home. I won’t cash any more bills, and I find a quiet place to just watch other people gamble. At most, I go two or three times a year to casinos.
What is this? Are we in a third-world country?
In the past week, we- the Greenbergs of Jericho- have suffered two separate and debilitating outages.
(This letter was sent to President Barack Obama by the New York chapter of the National Association of Jewish Legislators President Charles Lavine, NYS Assemblyman, 13th A.D. and to Anton Community Newspapers.)
Dear President Obama:
The New York chapter of the National Association of Jewish Legislators urges you to remain resolute in American support of Israel, which continues to be our staunch ally.
9 a.m. in Jericho on a Saturday with no plans!
What to do? Where to go? Don’t waste the day!
Congratulations to Jericho High School for coming in thirty-second in the nation and second in New York State on Newsweek’s annual “America’s Best High Schools” list. While there is much room for improvement in terms of the way the list is calculated, as detailed below, the fact remains that Jericho students consistently engaged challenging curriculum, and that should be celebrated. Syosset schools should be celebrated as well.
Yes! ladies and gentlemen, I am a Mets fan!
It is not an easy job, as they tear your heart out on many occasions but they thrill you at many other times.
I find watching spring rain to be soothing, mood enhancing and something in which I can lose myself. Last June, however, the total amount of rain that fell was 10.06 inches, more than twice the average for the month. The constant rain took an emotional toll on people, which a New York Times article referred to as “rain rage.” However, for much of the month I saw the rain as something that created theater in non-theatrical settings.
We are now in the vacation season.
Somehow, not everything goes smoothly and free from trouble when we are on holiday. This story, that I will unfold, happened in the Scottish Highlands.
