Editorial: New Deadlines

Friday, 05 October 2012 00:00

As noted on the second page of this week’s issue, the new deadline going forward for the Hicksville Illustrated News will be Thursday at 10 a.m. for the following week’s paper. This deadline is for all submissions: articles, photos, announcements, letters to the editor, obituaries and calendar items. As always, please consider the deadline on Thursday morning to be the last-minute deadline, as we prefer to receive submissions earlier rather than later.

In addition, as we are undergoing a few format changes to make a better newspaper for the community, we request that letters to the editor follow the 400-word count limit. If letters go well beyond this limit, we will need to send them back for revision.

We thank you in advance for your respecting our deadlines.

- C.T.


Editorial: Officially Replaced

Friday, 28 September 2012 00:00

What will forever be remembered as the symbol of the replacement official saga in the National Football League is the image of two referees standing in the end zone over a crowd of Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks – and both men in stripes are signaling different calls.

The real loser wasn’t Green Bay – who were given a raw deal following a series of questionable calls and non-calls on Seattle’s final drive – but the replacement officials themselves. The abuse directed toward these men, who are likely just middle-class workers and diehard football fans just like the rest of us, was, pun intended, uncalled for.

A few days ago, I was trimming my neighbor’s bushes that were growing through my fence, when a huge swarm of bee like bugs attacked me. I called 911 and the fire department was the first to come to my rescue. I am very grateful to the fire department for coming so fast to my rescue. It is great that there are so many wonderful volunteers in the fire department. I was also happy that I did not have to pay anything at all. I am doing ok. Just going to take time to completely recover. Many thanks to our wonderful Hicksville Fire Department volunteers.

I am a former student of Dutch Lane School (Class of 1960), the Hicksville Junior High School (1963) and a 1966 graduate from Hicksville High School. After graduating from Fredonia State University College in 1970, I was hired by my beloved Hicksille School district to teach choral music at Hicksville High School, where I taught from 1970 to 1975. After teaching for 33 years (28 years at North Shore High School in Glen Head), I retired in 2003.

In 2004, I returned to Hicksville High School, where I did a long-term sub for Dan Kristoff of beloved memory.

Friday, 14 September 2012 10:12

Have you ever wished you could help a foundation - any foundation at all - but funds were really tight? Have you ever wished you could do something more, where your voice could make a difference? Even though, in your heart, you know that you make a difference, and your life touches so many others?

Well, folks, here is a way that you can help, without spending a penny, without doing anything except clicking your cursor on your computer.


Editorial: 9/11, 11 Years Later

Written by Cory Twibell Friday, 07 September 2012 00:00

We all remember where we were that morning.

Yet the most important memory we as Americans need to preserve is how we felt on Sept. 11, 2001.

I remember thinking that what was on TV couldn’t be happening only 20 miles away; the helplessness was paralyzing.


Editorial: Let There Be Ice

Written by Cory Twibell Friday, 31 August 2012 00:00

The National Hockey League recently sent out a “save the date” to its 700 or so players.

Sept. 15 won’t be marking a celebration of any kind, as the ides of September represents the date on which the league will lockout its players if the two sides can’t reach a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA). The lockout would mark the third of NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman’s tenure.


Editorial: Summer Staycation

Written by Cory Twibell Friday, 24 August 2012 00:00

There are few finer words in the English language than “vacation.”

Americans work hard (having a smartphone is almost a full-time job in itself). For those fortunate enough to be working during this recession, finding time off from the office, however difficult that may be, is so vital to keeping a cool head during the summer swelter.


Letter: Precautions Against Fracking

Friday, 24 August 2012 00:00

New Yorkers are debating the many serious issues related to the extraction of natural gas from shale deposits that underlie parts of upstate New York. Recent news stories indicate that the state Department of Environmental Conservation may soon begin to permit high-volume hydraulic fracturing in our state on a limited basis.

We need a program that will ensure New Yorkers are protected from harm and cleanup costs are covered if contamination from drilling happens. We simply cannot afford to cross our fingers and hope accidents won’t occur.


Editorial: Cruise To The Show

Long Island Cruizin’ For a Cure will showcase more than 500 classic and antique cars and offer free prostate cancer screenings for men at their Sept. 9 event in Hicksville at the Sears Auto Center on Route 107.

Prostate cancer was diagnosed in 230,000 men in this country last year and there were more reported cases than breast cancer. The disease will affect one in six men in their lifetimes.
