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.
At the crossroads of the two major avenues of the East Bronx was a magical, idyllic spot known as Pop’s Pool Room. It was the place where I spent most of my spare time between the ages of 16 and 24, subtracting the two years that Pop banned me from his establishment.
Nassau schools have a right to be proud. Teachers receive good wages, the schools are relatively free of crime, and the amount of equipment, supplies and resources rival even that of many colleges. But many people feel that to support these schools, the high-cost of administration needs to be taken into account, and possibly adjusted downwards. In these times of belt-tightening and real estate decline, it’s a wonder that the school budgets get higher every year. Just recently, the school budget increases in Syosset and Oyster-Bay school districts, and most others on Long Island, were approved.
