“We work in the shadows,” Nick Maglaras said, leading me to his unmarked black pickup truck.
A 58-year-old in a gray T-shirt free of any logos or markings, Maglaras unlocked the truck’s cap, with its black-tinted windows. Inside, I saw a few galvanized-wire cage traps and a large, rectangular wooden box.
“This is a carbon dioxide cylinder,” he said, pointing to a well-worn tank. “The regulator is over here.”

Thursday, May 30 was the official grand reopening of the Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre more than a half year after suffering the damaging effects of Hurricane Sandy.

“The amount of work that went into rebuilding and reconstructing this great concert venue was absolutely amazing,” said Live Nation representative John Ahrens.
While visions of gassed geese danced in the heads of Town of North Hempstead residents, as the town recently explored that option as a solution to the poop-riddled parks that are the hallmark of Canadian geese, residents of other areas of Nassau were surprisingly quiet.
It’s not that these Long Islanders don’t love — or hate — the fecal-infesting fowl. It’s that many places have found solutions that are quite effective and not nearly as extreme as euthanasia. It’s a program called GeesePeace.
Founded in 2000, this Virginia-based nonprofit (www.geesepeace.com) works with communities around the country, and even in the U.K., to (as the name suggests) make peace with geese.
