Hicksville Stops To Remember Veterans

Written by Betsy Abraham, Saturday, 22 November 2014 00:00

Local veterans groups and residents gathered at Hicksville Middle School Veterans Memorial Park recently to honor brave servicemen and woman, past and present. William M. Gouse Jr. Post 3211 hosted Hicksville’s annual Veterans Day ceremony on Nov. 11.

The ceremonies began with the pledge and national anthem sung by Hicksville High School student Cassie Pursoo, accompanied by trumpeter Conner Hoelzer. Monsignor Thomas Costa from Our Lady of Church in Hicksville gave the invocation.


Helping A Vet Find A Place To Call Home

On Nov. 10, a dedication ceremony was held to celebrate the completion of a beautiful new two-story house in Hicksville. However, while new dwellings are an ordinary occurrence on Long Island, this one was unique and special in a way that very few are.

The house at 77 Thorman Ave. was built in memory of Navy Lieutenant and posthumous Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Michael P. Murphy, a Long Island native who tragically died in combat while serving in Afghanistan in 2005. However, this house represents more than just the dedicated service of a man to his country; it represents the beginning of a new life full of hope for a brother-in-arms and his family as well.


Parking A Premium At LIRR Station

Written by Hicksville News Staff, Thursday, 20 November 2014 00:00

Commuting to work via train is exasperating and expensive—add on the stress of parking and the threat of tickets, and it becomes madness.

At the Hicksville Long Island Railroad (LIRR) station, there are 2,603 total spots, which includes 1,440 in the town parking garage. Of the total spots, 1,531 are permit spots and 618 are unrestricted, according to the Town of Oyster Bay public information office. Though that sounds like plenty, the sheer volume of passengers commuting from the station makes every morning a mad dash for parking.

Written by Chris Boyle, Friday, 14 November 2014 00:00

John Busto, a 6th Degree Black Belt in American Kempo Karate and lifelong Hicksville resident, was inspired to begin the rigorous path of martial arts at the young age of nine after watching the old David Carradine television show “Kung-Fu.”

“I saw that show and I thought, ‘I have to do this.’ It was just something that was interesting to me; the mystique of martial arts,” he said. “So my parents brought me to a local school called Tracy’s Karate. Back then there weren’t many schools like there are today, and I was lucky enough to have one in my town.”

Hicksville’s Tommy Rainone remembers doing post work-out runs on Post Avenue, going by the old Westbury Movie Theater. One day, he noticed that the dilapidated building looked alive.

“I asked someone what was going on and he said they were remaking it into a concert venue. And I thought it would be so cool to have a boxing event there,” Rainone said. “While they were renovating I made some phone calls to event promoters and told them about the really cool location that was opening up.”


Fight To Save Trees Rages On

The tree debate continues as a judge will decide whether or not to grant a hearing or lift the temporary restraining order (TRO) put in place to protect 200 trees in Hicksville, Plainview, Syosset and Bethpage which are on the chopping block in what Nassau County is calling a “sidewalk repair” project.

Tree advocates were able to get the TRO on the basis of the county not conducting an environmental impact study. A state appellate judge issued a TRO on Nov. 5, granting the trees protection and giving the county until Nov. 14 to put in their response papers. From there, a judge will grant a hearing or lift the TRO.


Cuomo Talks Ebola

Written by Rich Forestano, Friday, 07 November 2014 00:00

Gov. Andrew Cuomo stood fast in his reasoning of home quarantine guidelines for returning healthcare workers that treated Ebola patients in West Africa, after a school technology talk at Mineola Middle School last week. He said he disagrees with the federal government’s response to the disease and thinks a quarantine could be lawfully enforced if needed.

“All we’re saying is healthcare workers who were exposed to infected people, or citizens coming from those countries who were exposed to infected people, need to have a 21-day quarantine at home,” Cuomo said. “I believe people will comply. If they don’t, it’s legally enforceable that we can mandate the quarantine. I don’t believe it’s going to come to that.”


Offering A Second Chance Through Art

Written by Chris Boyle, Thursday, 06 November 2014 00:00

Hicksville resident Kirk Larsen has been an artist since he was a child and has had an illustrious career in the art field. Little did he think that his artistic endeavors would land him in jail; however, that’s exactly what happened last week when he participated in an ambitious new project at the Suffolk County Correctional Facility in Riverhead designed to help young offenders get on the straight and narrow through art.

Splashes of Hope is a nonprofit organization based in Huntington founded in 1996 whose mission is to paint murals in hospitals and social service centers, to promote healing and uplift the families, patients, and staff, according to Diana Fogarty, Director of Operations and muralist.
