The Hicksville High School commencement program on Sunday, June 24 celebrated the myriad achievements and accomplishments of the Class of 2012 with a traditional outdoor ceremony that focused on future success for more than 400 graduates.
“Hicksville High School has been a wonderful school for you and because of you,” said Superintendent of Schools Maureen K. Bright in her thoughtful address.
Following what Third Squad Commanding Officer Ray Cote described as a “senseless and very disturbing” attack on a 68-year-old man suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia, Josue Bonilla, 23, of New Cassel, was charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree assault.
Cote said that on April 28, the 68-year-old victim, whose identity wasn’t released, wandered two-and-a-half miles from his residence in Hicksville to Grayson Street in New Cassel. Cote said Bonilla, at approximately 8:20 p.m., started kicking the victim and going through his pockets, while witnesses overheard the victim say, “I don’t have anything,” in Spanish.
On Saturday, June 16 more than 600 United States Marines and candidates from 14 regional recruiting stations filled Zach’s Bay at Jones Beach for the annual Sergeant Majors Cup competition. Candidates waiting to deploy to boot camp, called “poolees,” arrived from across the New York City region, including Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island, and Queens for the Long Island-hosted competition. The competition has been held for more than 10 years, each station taking turns hosting.
Some of the boot camp-style events that the Marine candidates participated in included: pull-ups, the water jug relay, ammo can relay, stretcher relay, and tug-of-war.
Hicksville Boys & Girls Club Executive Director Tom Bruno has been through this sort of thing before.
In 2009, Nassau County told Bruno that funds designated for his organization would be halved. Three years later on June 4, Bruno received a similar notification, this time from County Executive Ed Mangano and Youth Bureau Director Maggie Malito.
The Town of Oyster Bay will welcome back the Hicksville Farmer’s Market at Kennedy Memorial Park on Broadway and Jerusalem Avenues, on Sunday June 24, through Nov. 18, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“There is nothing quite like wandering around a genuine farmer’s market and being surrounded by the sights, sounds, and smells,” Oyster Bay Town Councilwoman Rebecca M. Alesia stated. “In returning for a third year at this location, the Hicksville Farmer’s Market has truly become a location where community revitalization, economic development and a showcase for locally grown farm produce, baked goods and more intersect in the heart of Hicksville.”
Over the years, one could argue that the organization, which is mainly comprised of local homeowners, hasn’t deviated from the plan.
The Hicksville resident of more than 50 years is a World War II veteran and is now in the running for New York State Legionnaire of the Year.
