Police Commissioner Kenneth Jackson and Garden City Police alert all residents of the escalation of phone scams. During these scams, victims are financially targeted by phone callers who make false statements and promises in an effort to manipulate the victims to send them money by way of Green Dot Money Packs, Money Grams, Western Union and prepaid money cards. Legitimate agencies and companies do not ask for this type of payment. Examples of phone scams include:
Gentle and loving, this senior Chihuahua mix enjoys going on long walks and cuddling. She would do best in a home with adults or older children.
This Calico loves to lounge around, play with toy mice and eat cat treats. She craves attention, and she would adapt well to a home with no other cats or young children.
These Chihuahua buddies are the perfect pair. Since spending their whole lives by each other’s side, they are inseparable. They are housebroken and walk well together on a leash. They would do best in a home without small children.
These pets can be adopted at the North Shore Animal League, 25 Davis Ave., Port Washington. The phone number is 516-883-7575.

Some families have weekly dinners, or go on yearly vacations. Other families run a business together. When it comes to Milena’s Garden Center and Garden City’s Basso Family, it’s the latter.
When John Basso was 18, he emigrated from Argentina found an old house on Jericho Turnpike in New Hyde Park, and turned it into a nursery in April 1997. He named his business after his daughter, Milena. Flowers are associated with femininity, he feels, so the name was a perfect fit for his nursery.

It’s become tradition in Stewart Manor to line up long before the gate opens in an attempt to claim the coveted honor of being the first to jump into the pool each new season.
