The Tanners Pond Environmental Center, (also known as the Garden City Bird Sanctuary), sponsored a Member Appreciation Party on Saturday, Oct. 13 at the home of Robert & Suzie Alvey. The theme was “Green is Good!”
Over 60 guests were treated to Long Island wines, beer, hors d’oeuvres and desserts as Robert Alvey presented the 2012 Garden City Bird Sanctuary Environmental Stewardship Award to Mike Lutz of Lutz Landscaping for his long term support of the community nature and wildlife area. Mike and his wife Linda raised their family in Garden City South and he is the owner of Lutz Landscaping, a full service landscape design and maintenance company serving Garden City, New Hyde Park and surrounding areas for over 25 years. Mike has “environmental stewardship” in his genes, and his two sons have earned their Boy Scout Eagle rank through environmental projects. He has also called the sanctuary several times to offer special shrubs or trees he’s come across that he knows would be good additions to the site...and has even donated his truck to help deliver. Previous GCBS Environmental Stewardship Awards have been presented to New York State Senator Kemp Hannon, Garden City accountant Andrew L. Hult, Chaminade High School, and the Harder family of Harder Tree Services.

The 8-year-old boys on the Redmen baseball club have displayed maturity beyond their years while helping the less fortunate off the field and dominating games on the field. They recently won their Columbus Day tournament with an impressive 5-0 record, but have really contributed to the community off the field that has not gone unnoticed by the communities in Nassau County.
Just 18 months ago, the team was compiled from scratch, gathering “friends of friends” as Head Coach Ralph Bonelli described it. There were no tryouts conducted, rather a collection of talented boys interested in joining the team. The players are from Mineola, New Hyde Park, Williston Park, Albertson and Roslyn. It is a rather serious commitment for the boys, who have played baseball beginning in the spring, continuing through the summer and fall, which transitioned into their winter workouts that are held at Unlimited Sports in Port Washington. The boys have learned to play together and have become a very close group of friends.
The Village of East Williston announced during its Oct. 15 board of trustees meeting that in light of ongoing struggles with Williston Park over water rates, the village is actively looking for another water supplier.
The village has been in contact with the Albertson Water District, Village of Mineola, Old Westbury and Carle Place, holding discussions on each possibly supplying the village with 25 percent of their water. Neither of the alternative municipalities have enough water to be the village’s only provider.
With Romney scoring what many considered an upset victory over Obama’s decidedly lackluster performance in the first debate, this follow-up was going to be a “deal maker or breaker in this campaign,” according to political pundit Chris Matthews, who spoke at Hofstra the prior week. Shortly after moderator Candy Crowley took the stage at 9 p.m., it was clear both candidates were prepared to come out swinging, making for a lively hour and a half that found roughly 65 million viewers tuning in to the town hall-style debate, according to the Nielsen Ratings.
The fund, recently initiated by Rich, “Big Daddy” Salgado and Tom Dluginski, former New Hyde Park Memorial teammates in the 1980s, will help finance new equipment for the team and renovate the football field.
Headmaster Dr. Jean-Marc Juhel of Buckley says, “Mrs. Sipley is an example of the type of growth-minded professionals that Buckley wants to continue to attract and support.”
“The decision of the board was to maximize roadwork,” said Petruccio. The mayor explained that in order to do that, the project would not involve changing curbs unless there was an issue so that the money would go specifically to the roads.
Nassau County Legislature Presiding Officer Peter Schmitt died suddenly on the morning of Oct. 3. According to Ed Ward, spokesperson from the legislator’s office, Schmitt, 62, collapsed while in a budget meeting with Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano in the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building and was rushed to Winthrop Hospital. He died at 11:55 a.m.
“Nassau County has lost a dedicated public servant,” said Mangano in a statement. “My wife Linda and I lost a friend of over 20 years. Presiding Officer Peter Schmitt served the residents of Nassau County with great integrity and pride. I had the privilege of serving closely with Peter in the legislature since its creation in 1996, where he distinguished himself as an outspoken advocate for the residents of the 12th Legislative District.”
