It only took Steve Bergsman 46 years

Some may think it sacrilege to harbor stolen property, including books from a library for more than 46 years, but that is exactly the offense that has been gnawing at the good conscience of established financial and real estate author Steve Bergsman.

In 1967, Bergsman graduated from Island Trees High School. Although the school never asked for the book, The History of the United States of America, c. 1904, before Bergsman graduated, he knew it was overdue.

Murphy: We will present a 2 percent levy

On Monday, March 19 the Levittown Tribune sat down with Island Trees Schools’ Superintendent Dr. Charles Murphy to get some first-hand information on the district’s budget proposal.

Dr. Murphy said, “We started off last summer, really concerned about the budget because of the tax cap; at the time we were projecting some tremendous increases with the Teachers Retirement System (TRS) and employees’ retirement system as well as their healthcare.” This would have put the district $1.8 million over the tax cap. But Murphy said that these things did not materialize this year, as projected.

If you think government is a bit bloated these days, it has just been put on a strict “diet,” according to Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano, who delivered his official State of the County address on Wed., March 14, at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City.

During the speech, Mangano touted his administration’s accomplishments and equally stressed the challenge of dealing with the county’s ever-increasing property taxes, warning of a potential 13-percent property-tax hike in the future.

Board Resolves to Cease Accreditation Program

On Feb. 29 the Island Trees School Board of Education heard presentations from Michael F. Stokes School, J. Fred Sparke School, Island Trees High School and the curriculum and instruction department.

One board member asked District Director of Curriculum & Instruction Dr. Susan Kelly about a line item in the English Department’s “wishlist” request for textbooks, and how it appears there may not be a purchase this year. Kelly said she has been discussing with department staff how to achieve the common core standards without purchasing new textbooks. She explained that publishers come out each year with changes to books. “I’m not seeing anything that’s big quality just yet and I don’t think any of us are anxious to put money into something that we really don’t think is a wonderful product,” Kelly said. She added that the staff is more prepared to deliver the curriculum through their own professional development, rather than upgrade textbooks each year.

It’s not easy to shatter a glass ceiling in any industry, but that’s just what nine remarkable women who live and work in the Town of Hempstead were honored for doing at this year’s Hempstead Town Pathfinder Awards ceremony held on Tuesday.

The first woman supervisor in the Town of Hempstead’s long history, Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray praised the women pathfinders for going to great lengths to accomplish their goals. “We’re doing it. From shattering the glass ceiling in business and breaking records in sports to achieving impressive victories in science and blazing a trail in government, women are making their mark and refusing to let anyone define their roles in any facet of our society,” Murray exclaimed to a crowd of spectators at Town Hall.
