On Saturday, Oct. 3, the students of Manhasset High School showed their class spirit by marching in the Homecoming Parade for each of their respective classes. The themes this year were especially creative in comparison to previous years and the students worked very hard to make their floats depict their theme accurately. In addition to the current students of Manhasset High School, the class of 1964 also marched in the parade, demonstrating that their spirit as a class had never faded.

“Anyone who said the trees were not coming down was lying.” And with that statement Park District Commissioner Bernard P. Ralston launched into his explanation of the procedure followed prior to three trees being cut down from the parking lot behind Raindew Family Stores. Under a master plan formulated about six months ago, Ralston said, the Manhasset Park District has gone back and forth with the effected storeowners regarding the revamping of the parking lot. That plan was not made public, he added, because it is park district property and not required, nor, he said, were homes in the area included in the discussion. The same quantity of lighting (though fewer poles) and the same looms (amount of light given off by a bulb) will be the end result.
North Hempstead Town Supervisor Jon Kaiman and the town board announced last week that the non-profit, non-partisan Citizens Campaign for the Environment (CCE) has awarded North Hempstead an A+ for its environmental initiatives and programs. Specifically, the group cited two town initiatives – the School Recycling Partnership Program and the pharmaceutical collection events – as groundbreaking.
It began with a puzzling agenda item on the Town of North Hempstead Board Meeting scheduled on Aug. 4 that read as follows:
“30. A resolution authorizing the retention of special counsel. Synopsis: this resolution will authorize consultation and legal representation relative to the Town’s acquisition of real property located in Manhasset, New York.”
Friday, Sept. 18, was a beautiful morning for the Gold Star Memorial Dedication Ceremony at Patriots Park, honoring those who lost their lives fighting for our freedom. The memorial includes the monument and a reflecting pool, decorated for the occasion with abundant flowers and American flags. The American Legion Post 304 was well represented and smartly uniformed for the occasion as were the young soldiers of the U.S. Army, 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment.
Nassau County Executive Thomas R. Suozzi said it wasn’t easy but he has managed to propose a $2.617 billion budget for the 2010 fiscal year that doesn’t increase property taxes for Nassau County taxpayers. However, his critics say a new tax in the form of an Energy Tax that was imposed earlier this year is unfairly burdening taxpayers who are already paying hefty taxes.
