The delightful burlesque musical Sugar Babies opened over the weekend on the Herricks Community Theater stage directed and produced by the Herricks Community Players under the talented direction of John Hayes, who has performed many miracles because he is able to navigate this huge cast in each of their many scenes with such insight.

And, just from audience reaction, it has been declared another Herricks Community Players hit.

At the last New Hyde Park/Garden City Park school board meeting, school board superintendent Robert Katulak, along with other board members, announced that Lowe’s Box Store has requested a meeting with school board representatives on April 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the Manor Oaks School boardroom. The representatives from the board will be trustees Annette Giarratani, Patricia Rudd and Dr. Alan Cooper. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the feasibility of purchasing the property where Spring Rock Golf used to be and to develop it into a very large box store. The property is just south off Hillside Avenue on Denton Avenue, a two-way street that rests on a landfill that has no lining. Many residents in attendance protested the proposed Lowe’s development since in order to build such a building it would mean breaking through whatever possible cap of protection is there and possibly allowing methane gasses to escape. The meeting is open to the public but no input from the public will be allowed.
