Letter: Summer Camp for Children of the Working Poor — With Your Help

Friday, 25 June 2010 00:00

What are your children, nieces, nephews, or grandchildren doing this summer? For economically disadvantaged families the end of the school year is a challenging time. With little or no money for summer camps, working parents find themselves asking, “who will care for my child?”

The Manhasset/Great Neck EOC has the answer—a 6-week full day summer program for 75 youngsters, ages 5 to 13.

 

Letter: Oil Spill in the Gulf

Friday, 18 June 2010 00:00

The ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is probably going to be the biggest environmental catastrophe in history. The environmental damage will be incalculable and will probably last for decades. There seems to be little outrage and/or effective processes for ending this event. The last hope, I assume, is for the relief wells to work, sometime in August.

 

Letter: Re: FAA Notice of Proposed Rulemaking: The New York North Shore Helicopter Route

Friday, 11 June 2010 00:00
The FAA has proposed to formalize the voluntary North Shore flight route for helicopters flying to and from Manhattan and the East End that would otherwise operate in the general area of the North Shore. This route is supposed to bring helicopters from Manhattan heliports to the southern tier of the Throgs Neck Bridge then to Execution Rock and then over the Long Island Sound to the east end. In practice the helicopters do not get over water until somewhere near Glen Cove or even further east. This latter path brings the helicopters right over Great Neck, Manhasset and Port Washington.
 

Letter: Thank You SDM Teams

Friday, 11 June 2010 00:00

I would like to publicly thank all outgoing members of each school’s Shared Decision Making Team. The time and effort you devoted to serve on these teams and the cause for which you served, improving student performance, is not only admirable but greatly appreciated by the school community.

 

Letter: Permission

Friday, 04 June 2010 00:00

“How was your weekend?” I spent mine getting up at 6 a.m. and driving to Wantagh to fly my model helicopter as I have for the past 31 months. Why? Because helis only fly there from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., and my local Hempstead Harbor field is still closed to flyers.

 

Letter: Great Idea! Let’s ‘Table it’‘til 2025

Friday, 04 June 2010 00:00

We love our oil. We love it for our cars. We love it on our food. And as long as it isn’t seeping into Manhasset Bay, all we have to do is shrug it off as it bleeds unchecked off the coast of Louisiana.

Or not.

 

Letter: Cheers for Proposed Skate Park in Port

Friday, 28 May 2010 07:57

My brother and I recently found out that Port Washington is possibly building a skate park. http://www.antonnews.com/portwashingtonnews/news/7802-port-residents-urge-tonh-to-build-skate-park.html). As young skateboarders in Manhasset, we have struggled to find suitable places to skate and are very happy that a skate park may be coming here soon.

 

Letter: Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony at Memorial Field

Friday, 28 May 2010 07:56

Our wonderful, patriotic town parade for Memorial Day is very well attended. However, after the parade, there is a ceremony at Memorial Field honoring our deceased veterans that is perhaps overlooked and equally important. Among other things, there is a roll call of all Manhasset veterans from the Civil War to the present time. Please come to Memorial Field following the parade to pay tribute to the men and women who are the real reason for this holiday.

Letter: It’s Easy to File an Absentee Ballot

Friday, 14 May 2010 00:00

Over the weekend I found out that I will be out of town next Tuesday, May 18. That is the day of the Manhasset Public Schools Budget Vote and Election for 2010. I briefly considered rearranging my travel schedule since this is a vote I consider extremely important for my family. I want my vote counted. However, I went on the school’s website, www.manhasset .k12.ny.us, and clicked on 2010-2011 Budget. There was the Application for Absentee Ballot listed at the bottom of the page. I printed the simple two-page form and filled it out and signed in less than 30 seconds. I will take it over to the high school today to get the ballot since the vote is next week. It could not have been easier!
