On Tuesday, Dec. 11, the residents of Hicksville will be electing a new fire commissioner. I am asking you to come out and support Ex-Captain Michael Azzue. Mike is a lifelong resident of Hicksville and is a 33-year member of the Hicksville Fire Department.
As a former chief of the Hicksville Fire Department, I have had the privilege to work with Michael while he was captain. There were countless times when I asked, Michael was always ready and willing to help out. On numerous occasions, Michael went above and beyond what is expected. With his experience, dedication and commitment to both members of the department and to the residents of Hicksville, I know that Michael will make the right decisions regarding the fire protection and emergency services for the members of the community.
As a devoted family man and a father of two daughters, he will always have the best interest of the community in mind. Please remember to come out and vote for Michael Azzue for the fire commissioner on Dec. 11.
Ex-chief, Hicksville Fire Department

Typically Asian cuisine is not associated with dessert and pastries so I was delighted by the deliciousness of the breads and pastries I found at Canaan Bakery and Cafe in Hicksville. Savory and sweet buns, Danish and Korean pastries, cookies and very good coffee can be enjoyed at the café, which is located at the entrance of the H&Y Supermarket. This is the Nassau County outpost of the four Canaan bakeries—the other three are in Flushing.

Hicksville’s Matthew Sloan faced off against the best young soccer players in the world recently, as he traveled to Turkey with the Olympic Developmental Program.
The Hicksville High School freshman started playing soccer when he was three and advanced his game to a more competitive level at age 10, when he was chosen to play with the Long Island Rough Riders. Sloan plays other sports and is on the boys basketball team, but says that he loves soccer because of the fast pace, and because of the coaches who have had a great influence on him throughout his training.

The Hicksville Middle School Kickline claimed victory again recently at the Scholastic Kickline Competition held at Nassau Community College. The team competed against top kickline teams and placed second in hip hop, third in pom and third in kick. County legislator Rose Walker, an honorary Hicksville Kickline team member, supported the girls at the competition. The middle school kickline team’s season began in September, and includes dancing at football and basketball games and competing in three tourneys. Their last competition of the season was March 2 at Nassau Community College. The girls are coached by Hicksville kickline alumni Katelyn Heuser, Victoria Shannon and Laura Bueche.
