Legal Types Runway Stars?

Lawyers and judges are not exactly known for their fashion statements, but at a recent Dressed to a Tea event, they were the stars of the runway in Mineola. 

The Oscar-themed event was hosted by the WE CARE Fund of the Nassau County Bar Association and the Nassau County Women’s Bar Association, and raised money for several local charities. The night was a great way for members of the Nassau County legal community to relax and enjoy a fun evening with their colleagues at the Bar Association building in Mineola.

Mineola Schools look to improve safety

Mineola School District reps conducted walkthroughs in each of its buildings before cementing security updates in response to the Sandy Hook shootings in December. District Superintendent Michael Nagler said the school board received recommendations from Massapequa-based Intralogic Solutions and Bay Shore-based A+ Technologies on revising security measures.

Trustee Artie Barnett, who’s been touting school security enhancements since the Connecticut incident, suggested the walkthroughs. Mineola officials recommended the district first examine Mineola High School and then upgrade all buildings, at an estimated cost of $50,000.

Court affirms Mineola expansion denial

Learn and Play Day Care on Herricks Road will not be granted a permit to expand from its current location, according to Supreme Court proceedings obtained by the Mineola American. Owner Arthur Smyles filed suit against the Village of Mineola after the board of trustees opposed the day care center’s application in June 2012, noting safety and parking concerns.

Smyles originally wanted to add space from the neighboring 99 cents store, which he also owns but is now vacant. Board members hammered Smyles with questions at a public hearing in 2011.

The tale follows “X,” an unnamed assassin for the C.I.A.’s subdivision, “Grey Sector,” who defies the odds when he turns on the organization that forced his hand to take the lives of innocent people.

Mineola updates flood project

Progression was the theme last week when Mineola Public Works Superintendent Tom Rini gave an update on the ongoing Bruce Terrace Flood project. The plan should remediate decades of flood problems on the Mineola/Carle Place border.

Mineola’s side of the three-part, joint-municipal project includes the installation of two new drainage manholes, four new catch basins and the removal of 300 feet of existing 18-inch drainage pipe. The pipe would be replaced with a new 30-inch drainage pipe on Bruce Terrace.
