Letter: Keep Hydrants Clear

Friday, 12 February 2010 00:00

This past snowstorm brings about special concerns to the Hicksville Water District. The plowing of snow often covers our 1,600-plus fire hydrants under a large amount of snow, making them impossible to find quickly.

In the event of a fire, local firefighters have to locate and shovel out fire hydrants before hooking up to them. Precious time is lost. The commissioners at the water district are asking that you help us by keeping the fire hydrant closest to your residence or business clear of snow.

We recommend a three-foot clearance on all sides. When shoveling snow be aware of vehicle traffic. Do not stand in the street and be careful not to slip and fall out into the roadway.

Karl Schweitzer

Commissioner, Hicksville Water District

Letter: Feels Decision to Run TV Ad Is Good One

Friday, 05 February 2010 00:00

CBS needs to be applauded with regard to its decision to air the 30-second ad this Sunday during the Super Bowl titled, “Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life.” The personal story of Tim Tebow, the University of Florida star quarterback, and his mother, Pam, is about celebrating life and its potential. Tim’s mother was advised to abort him after she fell ill with dysentery on a missionary trip to the Philippines 23 years ago. She refused and gave birth to Tim, who has strived to be an ideal role model both on and off the football field.

Letter: State of the State From the Governor

Friday, 15 January 2010 00:00

(This is a letter from NYS Governor David A. Paterson to all residents of the state.)

This is a winter of reckoning. And I write to you today not only about the state of our State, but also the state of our self-government – a fragile instrument of popular will that is breaking under the will to be popular.

 

Letter: A New Year’s Message

Friday, 08 January 2010 00:00

It seems as though the word “change” has become increasingly popular, not only on a national level but also at the state and local levels of government as well. It’s the word that brought the current president into office and it’s the same word that has given us a new county executive.
