Letter: ‘Searching for Solution’

Friday, 09 September 2011 00:00
The mid-summer news that CNN/Money magazine has once again rated Westbury to be among the top places to live in the U.S. (the second time in three years), came as a timely consolation to an otherwise bruising series of unwelcome realities that residents have been forced to contend with over the past several weeks.

First came the news back in June that, after two attempts at the polls, residents elected not to pass the school district’s budget, thereby resulting in the adoption of a contingency form of budgetary operation for at least until next May. Then there was the Newsday published school districts test scores that appeared in the Aug. 9 edition of the paper, which showed less than satisfactory performance on the state mandated tests in English and Math for grades three through eight, that was given this spring.

 

Letter: Residents, Village Workers Praised

Friday, 09 September 2011 00:00

In the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, I wanted to express to the residents of the village my appreciation for their patience and understanding as we recover from the damage wrought by the storm.

While I understand that many of us were without power and other utilities for an extended period of time, the village worked as quickly as we could to remove downed trees, keep our roads open and safe for travel, repair broken streetlights, etc. Our DPW and other staff worked very long and hard to make sure that our village services were maintained, and I want to thank our employees for all of their dedication and hard work.

 

Letter: ‘Taxing Seniors Unfair, Unconscionable’

Friday, 02 September 2011 00:00

I am at an age when I find hypocrisy intolerable. 

Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy recently darkened my doorway with campaign literature, which amounts to a boldface lie. She claims to have, “Helped [to] protect Social Security benefits...”

 

County to Hold Remembrance Ceremony Marking 10th Anniversary of 9-11

Friday, 26 August 2011 00:00

With the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attack on America quickly approaching, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced that the county will honor the memory of those who lost their lives. The region’s largest Remembrance Ceremony will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. at the Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre in Eisenhower Park.

Participating in the ceremony will be Tom Van Essen, former New York City Fire Commissioner; Bishop William Murphy of the Diocese of Rockville Centre; Rabbi Dr. Marc Gellman of the Temple Beth Torah in Melville; the United States Marine Corp. District Honor Guard, the Nassau County Police Department Pipe and Drum Band and Color Guard; many Nassau County fire departments; Long Island Harmonizers; and the North Shore Pops.

 

Schumer Calls for Crackdown on New Generation Fake Drivers’ Licenses

Friday, 19 August 2011 00:00

Nassau Ranks Second in NYS Counties for Drunk Driving Accidents and Fatalities

U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer was in Nassau County last week and called on the major wire transfers services to work with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to identify and block cash payment transfers to operators in China that peddle fake drivers’ licenses that are indistinguishable from the real thing. These high-tech Chinese-made fake IDs include features like holograms, watermarks, and magnetic strips, making them almost identical to driver’s licenses issued by state Departments of Motor Vehicles. These IDs, manufactured in China, are shipped throughout the country and hidden in shoeboxes and other packaging to disguise their contents and evade authorities.

 

Letter: Mangano, Republican Party Should Pay Back Taxpayers for Failed Referendum

Friday, 12 August 2011 00:00
Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano’s attempt to sneak through a massive tax hike was overwhelmingly rejected by voters on August 1st.

Mangano and the republicans in the legislature should never have tried to sell the people of Nassau on the bad idea of raising their property taxes to build Charles Wang a new Coliseum.

 

Letter: Birth Control Should Not Have Co-Pays

Friday, 05 August 2011 00:00

The independent, nonpartisan Institute of Medicine (IOM) comprised of health care professionals recommended that prescription birth control be included as a preventive service under the federal health care reform law. If adopted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), new insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act will be required to cover FDA-approved contraceptive methods without charging co-pays or other out-of-pocket fees. This could result in the elimination of one of the biggest obstacles to effective family planning for millions of American women. HHS is expected to make a final decision on the IOM’s recommendation in August.

 

Letter: ‘Must Vote NO on Coliseum Project’

Friday, 29 July 2011 00:00

With the vote for the proposed Coliseum project looming, I have felt compelled to speak out on this issue.

I will vote NO. I came to decide to vote NO for a number of reasons:

1) We’ve been told that the cost to the taxpayers of Nassau County will be $400 million, but NIFA has said the cost could be almost $800 million.

Are we paying $14 a year more in property taxes or $55 a year? What’s the truth?

 

Letter: Supports Proposed Coliseum Project

Friday, 22 July 2011 00:00

The proposed coliseum project is critical to Nassau County’s economic revival. It will create jobs immediately: 1,500 construction jobs and more than 3,000 permanent jobs. It will help Nassau County get back on its feet economically by generating development in the area and injecting much needed cash into the County’s coffers.
