John Micheals sees it

through the camera eye

When it comes to photography, it’s been a long road for Hicksville’s John Micheals. What started as a hobby in childhood, has now returned as an irreplaceable form of self expression.

“It’s a way of expressing myself. I’m very comfortable with it. It’s a way of expressing myself and being me without any qualifications,” he said.

Aircraft debris found in local man's backyard

Falling aircraft debris that landed last week in the backyard of a Stewart Manor resident who was on his way out to walk his dog was the talk of the jam-packed Aug. 25 meeting of the Town-Village Aircraft Safety & Noise Abatement Committee (TVASNAC).

Lee Ackerman typically walks his dog twice a day; when heading out for his afternoon jaunt with his four-legged friend on Tuesday, Aug. 19, he noticed something in his backyard that wasn’t there that morning — an 11-inch by 12-inch sheet of metal, covered with aircraft maintenance text and graphite soot.

‘Landscape-altering’ bug creeping north

It’s a cute little ‘bug.’ What it represents, however, is anything but cute.

An unusual-looking Volkswagen is toodling around Long Island this month. Painted to resemble the Asian longhorned beetle (ALB), the VW Beetle is part of efforts by the US Department of Agriculture to eliminate the pest, which can destroy 70 percent of an area’s tree canopy, according to the agency. Initially, officials held hope for complete eradication from about 23 square miles of the Island designated as infested or at risk by 2016. Instead, this “landcape-altering pest” is spreading.

“They offered us the world and we got crumbs. Rocks, really,” said Stewart Manor Mayor Gerard Tangredi.

Although a bit unsure at first, all Foofa needs is a little bit of love and patience to bring out his true affectionate self.

Yoshi

Just like the Mario character, this little guy will keep you smiling all day long. Yoshi happily greets all people he meets, gets along well with his fellow canines, and loves long walks and petting sessions. Yoshi would make a wonderful addition in just about any home.
