Letter: Fake Immigration Solutions? LI Wins Leads the Pack!

Friday, 06 August 2010 00:00
If I had the opportunity, as apparently Ms. Slutsky has to write occasional feature columns in the Farmingdale Observer, I’d be detailing the facts as they are, not as Ms. Slutsky and Long Island Wins wants you to believe.
 

Letter: Skating and Farmingdale

Friday, 30 July 2010 00:00

(This letter is in response to a letter titled “The Spring of Life,” printed in the Friday, July 23, 2010 issue of the Farmingdale Observer.)

I, for one, would prefer if skateboarders were banned from using the sidewalks in town because there are many senior citizens (and no, I’m not a senior) that shop in town. Could you just picture a senior coming out of a store only to be crashed into by a kid on a skateboard? Where’s the logic here of defending the village sidewalks for skateboarders? Not only that, but like Billy DePace said in the last letter to the editor regarding merchants having their wares on the sidewalk, that leaves little room as it is to just walk on the sidewalk. Bring in the skaters and there’s even less room for people to walk.

 

Letter: Senator Agrees With CCAF: State Has Spending Problem

Friday, 30 July 2010 00:00

(This letter is in response to a letter printed in the July 9, 2010 edition of the Farmingdale Observer entitled “Property Taxes Are Too High in Farmingdale.”)

The Concerned Citizens Association is right. Their July letter centers on the NYS budget process and asks for “real tax relief this year in the very near future to Farmingdale, as well as Long Island residents.” I could not agree more.

MTA Shouldn’t Blame County for Able Ride Cuts


The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has made a poor decision in cutting services provided by the Able-Ride Program while blaming such cuts on Nassau County.

 

Letter: The Spring of Life

Friday, 23 July 2010 00:00

It’s not easy for a young person in today’s world. If a teen is on a skateboard they are not doing drugs. They are happy. They are keeping in shape. If a young person is on a skateboard they are being young and alive.

 

Letter: The Inconvenient Truth - Response To Mayor Starkie

Friday, 16 July 2010 00:00

(This letter is in response to a letter printed in the June 11, 2010 issue of the Farmingdale Observer, entitled “Newsletter Sent to Residents is Wrong.”)

All of our elected officials answer directly to the taxpayer.  My passion for my community runs deep and that was just one of the reasons I ran for public office, only once thus far, for trustee of Farmingdale Village. Since questioning several of the practices of our present village administration, I have been attacked personally on many levels by the mayor and his friends. His rants and waving of papers at the village board meeting are merely his tactics of intimidation and showmanship. He even threatened to sue me. Yet, that will not stop me from asking questions and trying to get answers about how our taxpayer dollars are spent in our village.

 

Letter: ‘Come Back, Little Seamus’

Friday, 16 July 2010 00:00
It took all of three seconds to fall in love with him. That tiny v-shaped face and green eyes, his stumbling kitten tip toe walk, made us all know that he was the one for us. Since his litter siblings were named Angus and Cletus, we decided that Seamus McGee was the right name for him.
 

Letter: Attend a Fundraiser For Little Julia Perfetti

Friday, 09 July 2010 00:00
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.
 

Letter: Property Taxes Are Too High In Farmingdale

Friday, 09 July 2010 00:00
(This letter was sent to State Senators Hannon and Fuschillo, State Assemblymen Conte, Sweeny and Saladino and to Newsday. It is printed here at the author’s request.)

The Concerned Citizens Association of Farmingdale civic board has been and continues to be very concerned over the burden of very high property taxes in our community and on Long Island.  Over the past year we have provided forums for discussion on many relative issues, including school taxes, NYS education mandates, illegal apartments/housing, housing affordability, foreclosures, local economic development and property taxes.

Enjoy the County’s Parks This Summer


As we head into the warm days of summer, you may be wondering what resources and activities are available to you and your family. While funds for the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation have been cut 25 percent in the past two years, I’m pleased to say that Nassau County’s parks are open for business!
