In February 2002 I went to print with my first issue of the Hicksville Illustrated News. I remember sitting at my desk and wondering how I was going to cover a community I knew hardly anything about.
Now, I sit here trying to figure out how to say goodbye to that same community I came to know and love as if it were my own. After eight and a half years of serving as your editor this is my final issue.
New York State Senators Kemp Hannon and Carl Marcellino are partnering with the Nassau County Police Department to help residents safely dispose of expired or unused medications.

Important legislation that will allow municipalities to extend health services and insurance to volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers has been signed into law, Senator Craig M. Johnson (D-Nassau) announced.
“This is good legislation that will help the brave men and women who help keep our neighborhoods safe,” Johnson said. “This bill will help give many first responders the peace of mind to continue with this dangerous and selfless work.”
Teachers and parents – in fact, everyone in this community – should share a common goal: the best education possible for children.
Our school board has carefully crafted a budget with that goal in mind, while staying fiscally responsible. The proposed budget continues to provide this community’s children with strong academic programs and a wide range of extracurricular activities, while spending tax dollars prudently on only those programs that are absolutely necessary.
Hicksville residents have a chance on May 18 to vote for the biggest bargain in Hicksville, in Proposition 3 for the Hicksville Gregory Museum.
