Letter: Island Trees School Budget for the Record Part III

Friday, 09 April 2010 00:00

Well, it is that time of year again. The April days are longer and the sun feels a little warmer on your face. Mets and Yankees fans can dream of raising an October celebratory glass and toasting their World Series victors. Young men and women are out and about shopping for tuxedos and prom dresses. Currently, your humble author is even distracted by the tip-off of the NCAA Finals. Alas, spring fever is upon us! April also brings us another important event. It’s time for the Island Trees school budget vote and board of education trustee elections. Few votes, which you cast each year, will be more important than this one. It is always best to be equipped with as many facts as possible when walking into the voting booth and pulling that lever.

 

Letter: Questioning the Levittown Library Budget

Friday, 02 April 2010 00:00

I have recently had the honor of again working with the Citizens Budget Advisory Committee for the Levittown School Board. That experience caused me to question the proposed Levittown Library Budget. A cursory reading indicated a salary increase of almost $154,000 for 40 full-time and 46 part-time employees. That’s a $1,800 raise for all employees if divided equally.

 

Letter: Government Should Not Be Running Health Care

Friday, 02 April 2010 00:00

With the House of Representatives passing a health care bill, we are on the path to getting some kind of national health care plan; socialized medicine, with all the attending horror stories, bureaucratic bungling, mismanagement, and corruption the Tea Party protestors fear. What avenue undertaken by government on a large scale is not utterly festooned with these things? But for the sake of future historians, let’s acknowledge that this revolution in health care is because the current system is awful. It has bankrupted families and contributed to the malpractice that kills and injures more Americans than the Vietnam War.

 

Letter: Nolan Should Run for Governor

Friday, 26 March 2010 00:00
I formerly lived in Islip for 30 years and I would like to compliment Islip Town Supervisor Mr. Nolan in having the best interest of the tax-paying public first and foremost! It was not popular with the town workers, who were getting a free ride, at the tax-paying public’s expense.
 

Letter: Include Your Pets in Disaster Plans

Friday, 26 March 2010 00:00

Many LI residents were taken by surprise by last weekend’s storm and had no plan for their pets when they evacuated. This is a wakeup call given the predictions for a more active than normal Hurricane Season. Now is the time to make family evacuation plans including your pet.

 

Letter: Part of Levittown’s History

Friday, 19 March 2010 00:00

When I was 9 or 10 years old, my family moved from Queens to Seaford, which is not far from where they were building Levittown. I used to ride my bike everywhere, including the famous Vanderbilt Motor Parkway, which ran right through Levittown.

Letter: It Is Time to Say No

Friday, 12 March 2010 00:00

In the March 5 issue of the Levittown Tribune the Levittown Property Owners Association’s meeting minutes contained a report that the Levittown School Board would be considering a budget for the coming year that would call for an increase in taxes of 4 or 5 percent.

 

Letter: State Park Closings Are Unnecessary

Friday, 12 March 2010 00:00

It is troubling to imagine that Long Islanders could lose some of the most family-friendly park venues in this state and that a patriotic event, like the Jones Beach July 4th fireworks celebration, could be discontinued.

 

Letter: A Question for Bill Levitt

Friday, 05 March 2010 00:00

Well hello everybody. My name is Bill. I am the owner and the architect of LevitStyle. My company remodels the homes here in Levittown, the first American suburb built by Bill Levitt some 60+ years ago. I never met Bill Levitt. He passed away in 1994 at the age of 87, but after working exclusively on his houses since 1996 I would like to ask him something.
