Schools Talk Hygiene In Enterovirus Scare

Written by Rich Forestano Wednesday, 22 October 2014 00:00

Local school districts are reaffirming student hygiene standards in the wake of the non-polio enterovirus (EV-D68) that’s been found in the United States. A strain of the enterovirus was found in Southampton’s middle and high schools, but officials say it was not the virus that has caused the national EV-D68 outbreak.

 

The enterovirus disproportionately affects infants, children and adolescents who lack immunity, according to the Center for Disease Control. School districts have been notified to follow New York State Health Department guidelines to combat possible infections.

Written by Joe Scotchie Thursday, 09 October 2014 00:00

Running for his second major office in as many years, Adam Haber touched on familiar themes in a visit to Anton Media Group to discuss his candidacy for the Seventh District New York State Senate seat, where Haber is challenging the Republican incumbent, Jack Martins.

 

Haber entered politics in 2009, when he ran for and won, a seat on the Roslyn School Board. The district was then reeling from an embezzlement scandal that had cost it millions of dollars. Haber touted his achievements on the board, including bringing finances into line to the point where the district has seen the lowest tax increases of any district in Nassau County. Last year, Haber ran for the Democratic Party’s nomination to challenge Edward P. Mangano for the Nassau County executive’s race.

The Village of Williston Park Board of Trustees passed a local law last week that establishes the authority for legal action on water bills that are $25,000 or greater. 

 

According to Village Attorney James Bradley, if a water bill remains unpaid for 90 days, he is authorized to commence legal proceedings for collection, and charge attorney fees for prosecution. Fees would be added to the unpaid bill and subject to non-payment penalties

 

“The person or entity responsible for paying the unpaid bill will be liable for the attorney fees,” Bradley said, while noting that the bill is an amendment of existing code.

 

Startup Keeps Discount Savings On LI

Written by Jennifer Fauci Wednesday, 01 October 2014 00:00

The founders of the popular Facebook group “Massapequa Moms,” a ‘virtual living room with 6,700 people,’ are leveraging their social media power to create a new discount loyalty card good all over Long Island—including, they hope, in Mineola. 

 

With a hugely popular Facebook community, co-founders Dawn Boyle Kostakis and Stephanie Hartman wanted to “figure out a way that we could help the consumer and the business owner at the same time; keeping commerce going, keeping it all local and having the people get a little bang for their buck,” said Kostakis. They wanted to serve more than just Massapequa, too, and the Long Island Loyalty card was born.
