United States Congressman Gary Ackerman met with Williston Park Mayor Lud Odierna to announce that he has convinced New York State officials, with the help of New York State Senator Craig Johnson, to immediately release the critical road improvement funds he secured years ago for the Village of Williston Park.
The group met on Williams Street, one of the streets badly in need of road repair, in Williston Park. Quite a few years ago, Congressman Ackerman obtained $1 million in federal transportation funds for the village to repave a number of its streets. The village received $97,000 of the monies which it used to complete the engineering studies. But, the New York State Department of Transportation (DOT) held up the remaining $903,000 citing New York State’s fiscal problems.
Most of the 20 community members in attendance at the recent Herricks School Board meeting were engaged addressing concerns and skepticism about the proposed plan to add an optional language immersion program to next year’s kindergarten and first grade curriculum. Dr. Lori Langer de Ramirez, chairperson of the Herricks School District World Language Department, gave an overview of the planned program that took precedence over any budget discussion planned for the evening. The district’s curriculum council previously approved the program being addressed.
Students in the immersion curriculum would spend a half-day in the target language and the other half in English taught classes. All students of incoming kindergarten and first grade classes would be invited to participate, with the decisions resting with the parents, no matter what the home language is of each student.
As the result of a very long Williston Park Village meeting held last week and a follow-up work session by the Williston Park Village Board, the board voted to deny the application by the Willy Parker restaurant at 67, 69 and 71 Hillside Avenue, Williston Park.
Mayor Odierna said he was voting no because there were no residents in support of this application. Deputy Mayor Smith was absent and trustee Swendsen-Dowd and Dunn voted against the application and trustee Darmstadt abstained.
The last New Hyde Park/Garden City Park School Board meeting was held at the Hillside Grade School.
However, prior to the regular meeting, the board held a budget meeting at 7:30 p.m. to hear the various requests and suggestions from residents pertaining to the budget.
The first resident requested that no music programs be removed. She said that it has been shown that students who are in music programs also have higher math grades. Another concern she had was the history program. She said that, “it boggles my mind” that the sixth grade students are never taken to Museums to study different civilizations.
The Kiwanis Club of New Hyde Park/Floral Park recently celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the creation of the NHP Club at a gala dinner at Koenig’s in Floral Park. The evening was full of dancing to the great music of the band Out of Touch, fine food and spirits, and the camaraderie that the Kiwanis Club is known for.
The NHP Kiwanis Club was founded in 1950, and was the sponsor of the Floral Park Kiwanis Club. The two clubs recently merged to better serve the community. Kiwanis is an organization dedicated to serving the community. Our local club particularly emphasizes support for young people. It sponsors the Key Club, Builders Club, and K-Kids in local schools, awards scholarships to students each year, and sends needy young people to Kamp Kiwanis. The club actively supports local youth athletic leagues, Salvation Army, food and clothing for the needy and other charitable causes.
The last words from a 20-year-old resident came from a text message sent to his dealer. It read, “i’m diggin’ this —my dude, best I had in a while. 4 real. Save my number, peace.” That was sent before he was found by his mother dead in the bathtub.
“That is how his life ended and that must stop,” said Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, who along with Nassau Police Commissioner Lawrence Mulvey, believe that heroin use has become a very serious problem in the county. The county executive and police commissioner declared war on the problem, which they said costs the lives of at least four residents a month due to addiction, on average.
