Written by Christy Hinko Friday, 03 August 2012 00:00
Earlier this month, Long Island author Carole P. Roman published her first children’s book, Captain No Beard—An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate’s Life. Roman told Anton Newspapers, “It is based loosely on a game I play with my grandson Alexander,” inspired by his charm and imagination.

In the story, Alexander “Captain No Beard” and his crew (a monkey, a lion, a frog, and his cousin and first mate, Hallie) set sail on their “mighty frigate” from his bedroom into a magical seafaring world in search of a distant land and treasures.

 

‘Spirit of Broadway’: 25 Years For St. Kilian’s Players

Written by Rita Zirpolo Padden Friday, 27 July 2012 00:00
This year St. Kilian Players celebrate their 25th anniversary with a show different from the Players’ traditional Broadway musicals, yet filled with the same enthusiasm and entertainment. The Players began in 1988 when Fr. Chuck Romano arrived and conceived the idea of community theatre in the parish. Fr. Chuck discussed his idea of 25 years ago that is the same idea that exists today.

According to Fr. Chuck, “It is amazing that the group has survived and thrived; it is a credit to the group’s commitment, the parish’s support and the belief in what it all was about when we started. It was the idea of a theatre group open to people of all faiths working together sharing their time and talents to entertain audiences. We wanted to put on a good show and in the process have a spirit of giving, not getting. It is the ‘We, not I, mentality.’ Friendships and marriages happened. Children have grown up following in their parents’ footsteps. People have become better in their own self-awareness and confidence in their abilities. A real community spirit has developed and has been sustained for 25 years. Each year different talents emerge.”

Public comment period expires July 30

On Thursday, July 19, Nassau County Coalition of Civic Associations (NCCCA) hosted “Stop the Grumman/Navy Toxic Plume” presentation with the Seaford Harbor Civic Association and Massapequa Water district at the Seaford Fire Department headquarters.

Massapequa Water District Commissioner John Caruso gave a detailed presentation to approximately 100 community members and residents.  He said, “Most people, especially the DEC (Department of Environmental Conservation) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), really don’t get it when it comes to our sole source aquifer; what’s below us is our drinking water supply, broken up into three distinct aquifers.” Long Island mostly draws from middle, the Magothy aquifer, from a range of 50 to 900 feet below the earth’s surface; Massapequa water is screened from about 850 feet below the surface.

Maragos: Bonding Failure Increases Budget Deficit

Written by Joe Scotchie Friday, 20 July 2012 00:00

NIFA, Democratic legislators targeted for criticism

Last week, Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos announced that the 2011 unaudited budget deficit would reach $50.4 million. He added that the projected deficit for 2012 is set at $45 million. However, he placed the blame on both NIFA and the Democratic Party caucus in the county legislature.

Maragos said that the failure of both NIFA and the Democratic caucus to work with County Executive Edward P. Mangano and approve $43.1 million in bonding for property tax refunds caused the deficit to balloon. With such approval, he said the deficit for 2011 would be at only $7 million and the 2012 projected budget would be nearly balanced.
