Letter: Save The Trees

Thursday, 16 October 2014 00:00

 

South Oyster Bay Road has 40-year-old trees lining the roadway. They are mainly beautiful sycamores. They form a canopy of shade across the road, give home to nesting birds, put oxygen into the air we breathe, and add to the beauty of Hicksville, Plainview, and Syosset.  They are also slated for slaughter, a cutting down due to the shortsightedness of our politicians.

 

Letter: Common Core Gets A Big Fat ‘F’

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting with New York State Senator Kemp Hannon on Sept. 4 to discuss our significant concerns with the Common Core Curriculum. The senator graciously agreed to meet and spent almost an hour with us, listening to the issues associated with the curriculum.   

 

 

Letter: Vote For Martins

When Jack Martins became mayor of Mineola, he set a standard of accountability. He began a program to turn the village back from increasing high debt which would have crashed the village on the shore of one sided thinking.

New Hyde Park Marvels

Written by LAURA CERRONE Thursday, 02 October 2014 00:00

Farmer’s  Market Is Local  At Its Best

 

On Saturday mornings, Jericho Turnpike is free of its chaotic weekday traffic and becomes temporarily an idyllic thoroughfare. However, there is one corner of Jericho that still has its upbeat cadence, the municipal parking lot across from Village Hall in New Hyde Park.  The lot is adorned with white tents, and underneath, rain or shine, are treats for everyone in town.

 

It is a scene reminiscent of a medieval marketplace, but it is 2014 and we are standing in the middle of the New Hyde Park Farmers’ Market.

I was delighted to see the NYLCV’s (New York League of Conservation Voters) endorsement of Senator Jack Martins for State Senate.  I am a resident of Roslyn Estates and recently experienced first-hand the responsiveness and dedication of the Senator on resolving a problem with a contaminated well affecting Roslyn’s water supply.  It began with an email I sent directly to the Senator on behalf of our neighborhood coalition CCORE (Concerned Citizens of Roslyn Estates) expressing our concerns with the safety of our water and the proposed remediation of an air stripper to be erected adjacent to a neighbor’s property where children live.  I was astounded to receive a phone call within 24 hours directly from the Senator who took the time to listen to all of our concerns and then reached out to state environmental experts to properly assess and correct the water pollution issue.  Having dealt with water pollution and safety issues in prior situations in Long Island,  he was able to effectively work with Assemblywoman Michele Schimel, our Mayor Jeffrey Schwartzberg and other local officials, to find a remediation effort that met the needs of our community—all within the space of a month.  We were greatly satisfied with the immediacy and hard work that the Senator devoted to successfully resolving this problem, staying closely in touch with us throughout the process.   Senator Martins proved to us that no issue was too small for him to pay attention to where it involved the environment and water safety. The endorsement from the NYLCV is well-deserved.

Letter: A Candidate With Fresh Ideas

Thursday, 02 October 2014 00:00

It is not often you have the opportunity to support someone in politics you think can actually make a difference. Nor is it common for a successful businessman to venture into politics with a completely independent voice and no personal agenda. Adam Haber, Democrat for New York State Senate, District 7, is such a man. 

 

I am supporting Adam because I have witnessed his excellent performance as a member of the Roslyn Public Schools’ Board of Education and because I know his experience in the private sector gives him a unique perspective on how to jump start Nassau’s economy. 

 

Letter: Martins Is A Visionary

Thursday, 02 October 2014 00:00

As our soldiers fight to retain our freedoms, many Americans have become disenchanted with our government leaders and do not participate in our democratic process.  What a tragedy!   Without our individual attention and focus, the ability to influence our direction can be easily manipulated. 

 

For me as a woman, this is particularly true of the reprehensible lies and smear campaign being waged against our State Senator Jack Martins.  Not only is he a son, husband, father to four girls, and brother to two sisters, he has supported pay equity for women, stronger protections for domestic violence victims, and legislation to protect our children—very important women’s issues.

 

Editorial: Patience Is A Virtue

Thursday, 25 September 2014 00:00

Impatience is rampant these days, with harried drivers blaring horns to speed up traffic. The car horn was designed to alert other automobile drivers to potential hazards, i.e. swerving into oncoming traffic, drifting into the next lane.

 

Recently, I observed the impatient driver of a beautiful white Mercedes sedan waiting to turn onto Mineola Boulevard at a traffic light. When the light turned green, traffic proceeded slowly due to pedestrians crossing westward toward the hospital. This driver honked his horn abrasively and then barreled through the intersection once he had the chance

Perhaps the driver had been late for something. But that doesn’t mean you can speed off and be a danger to other drivers  

Traffic can be a pain, use prudence. Take a bit of extra time for getting to your destination.

 

Letter: Sports Musings

Thursday, 25 September 2014 00:00

Some sports stories amuse me, while some anger me. Following are my musings about some recent sports section articles.

Medford’s own Marcus Stroman currently has a winning record for a Canadian team in the American League. So why didn’t the Mets sign this good young pitcher first?

 

I was very surprised when Alex Rodriguez’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, expressed such glee over A-Rod’s drug dealer finally facing a possible prison sentence; but then I remembered that

Anthony Bosch had forced A-Rod to inject all those steroids at gunpoint.  Or have I misremembered that?
