Letter: We Owe Herman Sirois a Debt of Gratitude

Friday, 07 August 2009 00:00

I read with interest and some confusion the Letter to the Editor by James P. Ward published on July 31, regarding Herman Sirois’ resignation. I’m not sure what response Mr. Ward expected from the community. Rioting and/or rejoicing in the streets?

 

Letter: Ward Discusses Dr. Sirois’ Resignation

Friday, 31 July 2009 00:00

“Old soldiers never die - they just fade away.” was among the concluding comments of General Douglas MacArthur, on April 19, 1951, before a packed joint session of Congress. A week earlier, on April 11, 1951, President Harry S. Truman relieved MacArthur of his command as commander of United Nations forces for the General’s insubordination and unwillingness to conduct a limited war on the Korean peninsula. 

 

A Nassau We Can Afford

Written by Edward P. Mangano Friday, 31 July 2009 00:00

A recent column published in this paper completely missed the point about the race for Nassau County Executive. The 2009 campaign isn’t about who can raise and spend the most money; it’s about who is best able to govern our county for the next four years.

Tomato and Potato Gardeners Beware!

Last month, I wrote about all the wonderful Farmers’ Markets in our area. We are so fortunate to be able to buy fresh local produce and other assorted items from craftspeople who are our neighbors and friends.

Hello Dalai

The Dalai Lama and the New York State Senate

On May 9, 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate the Dalai Lama offered an invocation for the New York State Senate, calling for compassion during tough times. The 73-year old spiritual leader of Tibet spoke from the chamber floor about honesty and transparency and told the senators and spectators about his deep respect for American values. “This house,” he said, “I think demonstrates the American democratic system.” Ya think?

 

Letter: Buhmann Agrees With Caro on School District’s Busing Issue

Friday, 17 July 2009 00:00

Bravo to Tom Caro for speaking on behalf of many, many taxpayers of this district. If the board of education and administration were as thoughtful as he is on these issues perhaps our burdensome tax rates would not be so!

 

Letter: Manton Discusses Health Care Issues

Friday, 17 July 2009 00:00

Over the last 25 years, although I suspect that many residents might be in denial on this point, the Nassau County that historian Edward Smits dubbed “Suburbia, USA” has become more urbanized; more Queens-like. We now discuss issues like crime, homelessness, taxes, and immigration in a manner that, prior to 1980, would have been seen largely as Big City concerns: concerns of places like Queens.

As for the issue of increased distances for children before they are eligible for bus transportation a few of things come to mind:

 

Letter: Hunt Responds to Levittown School Audit Article

I find it hard to accept Dr. Sirois’ statement that the $15.9 million overfunding of an employee account “had no adverse effect on the taxpayers.”
