Since the beginning of the year, the Village Board has been very busy with developing plans for three major capital improvement projects (2014 Road Improvement; South 14th & 6th Ave. Drainage/Village Hall Parking Lot Reconstruction; and Reconstruction of the Tennis and Basketball Courts at Memorial Park) working on the budget, proposing an offer for a new contract with the CSEA Union, developing reorganization plans for the Building Department and Clerk’s Office, and finally, continuing to manage the Operation Downtown (Jericho Tpke) Project.
Living a stone’s throw from the LIRR main line for 48 years has given me a front row seat of various iterations of the Third Track Project costing from $195 million to $1.2 billion.
In the same 30-year period various iterations of replacing the Westbury Ellison Avenue Bridge have been put forth. Thank goodness there will be a new bridge soon. But how soon? Hopefully sooner than it took to eliminate the Mineola Roslyn Road at-grade crossing—eight years.
The New Hyde Park-Mineola Running Club is having its annual 8K race, 2 mile community walk, and children’s 1/4 mile fun run will be held Sunday, June 1, rain or shine. We are hoping for a huge turnout again this year. This is our 37th year. We appreciate holding the event because it is a great community outing, it serves great causes, and, importantly, helps to add to and promote health and fitness within our local communities.
Thank you for coming out in what appears to be a resounding vote of approval for the Herricks School District’s budget and bond. On a sun filled spring day, so many came out to cast a vote of support for a Budget that met the financial requirements of the state, and a fiscally responsible bond that will continue to provide improvements in the structures and surrounding s of our buildings.

To the Town of North Hemsptead, I really think you are making a mistake by not installing two AEDs outside in Tully Park.
Last year I had the opportunity to meet with Ms. Fava and present ideas on placement and security of the AEDs in Tully Park she seemed very interested but I never heard back. I would like the opportunity to meet again to come up with a way to have these AEDs installed.
While Memorial Day has come to mark the unofficial start of summer, the day has a solemn significance. It is the day when we as a community pay tribute and honor to the 56 young men from New Hyde Park that have given their lives in defense of our country.
Many of these young men were just out of our high schools. They never had the chance to return to New Hyde Park to enjoy the American Dream they fought to give us. Once we as a community let the sacrifice and memory of these young lives become lost in our own self-centered pursuits, we will have truly lost our communal spirit.
On May 20, residents of the Sewanhaka Central High School District (New Hyde Park Memorial HS, Elmont Memorial HS, Floral Park Memorial HS, H. Frank Carey HS, and Sewanhaka HS) will be asked to vote not only for the 2014-15 school budget, but also for a 20-year, $86.6 million school bond.
Before accepting this bond debt, voters should be aware of what the bond will cost them, and how their money will be spent.
The Town of North Hempstead’s beautiful shoreline is among our town’s most valued environmental and recreational resources. As our waterfront meanders from Little Neck Bay to Manhasset Bay to Hempstead Harbor and out into the Long Island Sound, none of us are ever too far from a scenic waterfront view.
Manhasset Bay and Hempstead Harbor are among the prime destinations in the town for residents to enjoy the waterfront. North Hempstead’s Town Dock in Port Washington is frequented by scores of residents annually, who moor their boats here or enjoy a stroll along the water.
Thousands visit North Hempstead Beach Park each summer for entertaining town events and to experience the sun and the sand.
In the inaugural year of its “master teachers” program, New York State, in partnership with SUNY schools, has honored a total of 319 science, math and technology teachers—including 42 on Long Island—with the Master Teacher designation. Congratulations to Mary Blondrage and Jason Gutlaizer of the Sewanhaka High School District. These star educators will become peer mentors, sharing their techniques through seminars, workshops and one-on-ones with other teachers—especially the newest ones.
Master Teachers show excellence not only in subject matter and teaching, but also by cultivating thorough understanding of the students and the community in supporting STEM studies. Many people may not be aware of this program and its $60,000 four-year fellowship. Citizens can nominate a teacher for the spring cohort (and teachers can sign up for email notification when applications open) at www.suny.edu/masterteacher/. We have no doubt that in coming years we will see more Sewanhaka, New Hyde Park and Herricks teachers earn the title.
