It’s About Time: Seniors to Finally Get Cost of Living Increase

Friday, 28 October 2011 00:00

McCarthy: Good News But System Needs Long-Term Fix

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, who has been fighting for a “Cost of Living Adjustment” (COLA) increase for senior citizen Social Security beneficiaries since the last one in 2009, welcomed today’s news that seniors will finally be getting one next year.  She also noted, however, that the flawed system used to determine the increases needs to be fixed with a proposal that she is co-sponsoring in Congress.

“It’s great that seniors are finally receiving an increase next year,” said Rep. McCarthy, a senior citizen herself, “but we need to reform the system so that the frequency and amount of these increases more accurately reflect the actual costs that seniors face.  That’s why I’m cosponsoring the Consumer Price Index for Seniors Act – seniors need Social Security to keep up with the reality of their expenses in this tough economy.”

Letter: The Andy Foundation Donates to Pal-O-Mine

Friday, 14 October 2011 00:00
I wanted to let you know about an exceptional organization based in Garden City called The Andy Foundation. The foundation was established in January of 2004 to honor the life of Andrew Patrick Palmeri. On Sept. 17, 2003, Andrew Patrick Palmeri (“Andy”) was playing tag with his friends when he was fatally hit by a passing car. In January of 2004 Andy’s family and friends established The Andy Foundation. The foundation’s motto is “By Kids — For Kids” and its mission is to give all children regardless of race, religion, or social and economic status, a chance for a healthy, safe and happy childhood, which will give them a better chance to become successful and productive adults.

Keeping the Lights On and the Relief Flowing

If you’re like me, you couldn’t be more frustrated with the way things are going in Washington lately, with all the gridlock; the endless bickering and partisanship; the negative, divisive tone; and votes made not in the spirit of doing good for the people but just to score political points and headlines.

We’ve seen this played out over and over again this year, when the most extreme members of House Majority decided that for the first time in American history we should attach massive, job-killing spending cuts to routine matters like paying back money we owe, keeping the government open and delivering disaster relief funding.

Shop and Dine in Garden City

The residents of Garden City are very fortunate to have viable retail businesses on Seventh Street, Franklin Avenue and New Hyde Park Road where there is a good variety of quality merchandise and family dining experiences available to be enjoyed. Please support these businesses and enjoy the products, variety and outstanding customer service. Keep in mind that these merchants save you from traveling outside the village for your needs. Consider the harsh reality if we did not have these businesses here to service our needs.


Letter: CSEA Has Nothing Left to Give

Friday, 30 September 2011 00:00
Nassau County is heading closer and closer to its demise. Following a national Republican trend, the administration is targeting government workers and their unions as the main reason for the county’s financial collapse. It implies our county is being destroyed by overgenerous labor agreements, and if those aren’t amended, massive layoffs will occur.

But a lack of transparency on the county’s part clearly exists. The administration complains that Nassau has the second highest taxes in the nation, yet if the county got rid of all 6,000 of its Civil Service Employees Association workers, Nassau would still hold that regrettable status. In fact, in a $10,000 property tax bill, only $300 is for the services provided by CSEA members.

Thank You

Writing on behalf of the Garden City Community, I wish to thank the Garden City Clergy Fellowship, the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Garden City Fire Department for conducting the inspiring Service of Memory and Hope last Sunday on the 10th anniversary of the Sept.11, 2001 terrorist attacks. It was a very moving experience that assisted many of us to get through that difficult day.

Tropical Storm Irene

The Village Department of Public Works has done a remarkable job both during and after the storm. However, the cleanup continues and we ask for your patience as we are doing everything possible to return to normal conditions.

Residents can either place their rubbish at the curb for pickup or drop off their yard waste at the Village Municipal Yard, which is located on Cherry Valley Avenue, south of the Community Park entrance. The hours of operation are Mondays through Fridays from 9 to 11:45 a.m., 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. A permit, in the amount of $15, can be obtained at Village Hall and is in effect for the life of the car.
