In the past several years, John Carpenter has transformed Massapequa into the Classic Movies Mecca of Long Island. But the Movie Man wasn’t always on the side of fortune. A decade ago, such things weren’t possible. In fact, the Movie Man was just glad to be alive. In 1999, he narrowly escaped death when he was hit by a car while crossing Clark Boulevard, on the way to visit his parents.
I can remember as a boy growing up in Massapequa that it was a huge thrill to march in the Decoration Day Parade and to this day, even though the name has been changed to Memorial Day, I’m sure that the participants who marched down Broadway and Park Boulevard felt the same as I did way back in the 1930s. This year’s parade was co-sponsored by the American Legion Post 1066 and the Sgt. Peter F. Colleran Post 7763.
The North Massapequa Fire District Board of Commissioners recently passed a board resolution to designate its two firehouses as official “Safe Havens” for abandoned newborns.

The program will be run according to the New York State “Safe Haven” law and guidelines provided by the AMT Children of Hope Foundation.
