Barclays Tournament Tees Off At Bethpage

Written by Ronald Scaglia Friday, 24 August 2012 00:00
It’s about the length of two football fields, but for the world’s best golfers, it is 200 yards that can crush the dreams of winning a prestigious golf tournament, or propel a player into glory with an accurate tee shot and a well-executed putt. It’s the 17th hole of the Bethpage Black, where the Barclays Golf Tournament is being held this week.

The 17th hole is considered to be a signature hole of the course. During the 2002 and 2009 U.S. Open Championships, which were held at Bethpage Black, a loud and enthusiastic crowd helped to put a New York stamp on those tournaments. Barclays tournament directors are hoping for that same excitement as players arrive at the challenging hole.

Written by Christy Hinko Friday, 17 August 2012 08:26
On Tuesday, Aug. 7, Nassau County Police Department (NCPD) and Target hosted the annual National Night Out in the parking lot of the Levittown Target. The event is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; and to generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs. The program also strengthens neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, sending a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

Officers from the newly reorganized Second Precinct were on hand to meet the community, and share their safety tips. They offered safety reflectors and coloring books to the children and their parents. Officers Paul Lamonica and Tom Field told the Levittown Tribune that, although the local precinct has moved to join with the Second Precinct, local residents can still meet with the auxiliary units at the office on Polaris Drive in Levittown.

Several weeks ago the Island Trees Football Alumni Association completed the Fallen Heros Memorial at the high school. The newly installed bronze plaque now sits adjacent to the original memorial and bears the names of Island Trees graduates who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, as well as those who were members of local and city police and fire departments and lost their lives in 9/11.

Alumni Association Chairman Nick Tonno told Levittown Tribune that three days after the presentation of the second memorial, it had been vandalized. It has since been restored.

NC hosts Vietnam War Memorial replica

This November marks the 30-year anniversary of the dedication of the national monument, the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Last week, on Thursday, Aug. 2 a scaled-down replica of the national monument was presented to the public for a temporary display at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow. Dozens of service members and their families gathered for the opening ceremonies, which included a keynote speech from New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

Many Levittown alums may remember Bob Calabritto, class of 1989, as the captain of the Division Avenue High School All-Conference football team, or as the captain of the Division All-County lacrosse team, but next week, Calabritto will be competing as an “Ironman” in the Ironman U.S. Championship in New York City.

Calabritto, a native Levittowner, moved to Indonesia in 2000 for “life adventure,” he told the Levittown Tribune. He is a freelance writer and magazine editor, and owns a garment-trading company. His mother, an Island Trees High School graduate herself, class of 1965, still resides in Levittown.
