Mineola Comes Together To Remember 9/11

Written by Rick Karas Friday, 21 September 2012 00:00
It was a solemn day in Mineola last Tuesday, as the village held a ceremony a Memorial Park to remember those lost in the September 11, 2001 attacks.

It was the 11th anniversary of that fateful day, also on a Tuesday, and the similarities were not lost on the featured speaker of the evening. Eleven years ago, terror struck the nation on a brisk, cloudless day. The weather was eerily similar last week.

 

NCVOA Honors Martins And Schimel

The “dynamic duo” lauded for their efforts in advocating for villages

The “dynamic duo,” New York State Senator Jack Martins and New York State Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel, were honored by the Nassau County Village Officials Association last Thursday evening, Sept. 13, at the NCVOA’s 87th annual dinner. Senator Martins and Assemblywoman Schimel were praised for their individual and joint efforts to support and advocate for local government. The NCVOA includes 64 villages, and both the senator and the assemblywoman represent many of these villages within the Seventh Senate District and the 16th Assembly District.

Hosting the event, NCVOA President Ralph Kreitzman, mayor of the Village of Great Neck, offered a brief history of the organization, starting with its inception in June of 1925, when officials from four villages (Freeport, Lynbrook, Rockville Centre and Hempstead) met mainly to discuss traffic problems, an issue still today. “At the meeting, they had a presentation from a company that proposed adoption of three-color traffic signals to avoid some of those traffic problems,” the mayor said, adding, “Importantly, they agreed that a close association of those and other villages should result from that meeting.” Soon after, by-laws were adopted and the Village Officials Association of Nassau County came into existence. Mayor Kreitzman noted that “significant among its provisions was its purpose of ‘the promotion of mutual community welfare’ and a provision that there were to be monthly meetings.”

 

Former Town Supervisor May Newburger Dies At 92

Written by Wendy Karpel Kreitzman Monday, 17 September 2012 09:39

A mentor to so many, a legend in her own time

To all who knew her, and many who did not, May Newburger was truly a “legend in her own time.” She died last Thursday, Aug. 30, at her home in the Village of Great Neck. A former New York State assemblywoman, former North Hempstead town councilwoman, immediate past North Hempstead town supervisor, and a strong guiding hand and mentor to a whole host of prominent elected officials, May Newburger will be missed. She will be sorely missed by those who often took her very firm, always tough out-stretched hand and by a public who may never realize all she has done for one and all.

For U.S. Rep. Gary Ackerman, “There is no substitute for May Newburger.”

Mineola business has patent pending on ‘Tablums’

Our lives are filled with special moments such as weddings, graduations, bar and bat mitzvahs, first communions, and other special occasions. While these celebrations last only for a few hours, the memories are cherished for a lifetime.

Preserving these moments with photographs helps to preserve these occasions. However, video brings these special moments back to life. Imagine gazing through a wedding album and being able to not only see the images, but also hear the band playing music and the best man as he toasts the happy couple.

Transportation authority to appeal decision

The Metropolitan Transit Authority stands to lose about $1.5 billion in revenue per year after a New York State Supreme Court judge ruled on Wednesday, Aug. 22 that the MTA payroll tax is unconstitutional. The MTA plans to appeal the decision made by Judge R. Bruce Cozzens Jr., according to a released statement last week.

This didn’t stop local officials from calling the ruling a “win for taxpayers” during a press conference last Thursday. Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano, along with numerous members of local and state government, were out in full force to applaud the decision, and plead to the powers that be to not grant a successful MTA appeal.

County, town and state hash out Bruce Terrace flood remediation details

Whether it was a coincidence or perfect timing, the Aug. 21 meeting between Mineola, North Hempstead, Nassau County and New York State officials couldn’t have occurred at a better time. After the water receded on Aug. 15, the trees cleared and power restored to more than 281 village homes, discussions albeit slow and steady, have moved to the point where dates are being set for the Bruce Terrace Flood Project to finally break ground.

In the wake of a storm that blew through Mineola, a meeting was held at the Nassau County Legislature building to discuss the construction phase of the project that will overhaul storm drainage systems in Mineola and the border of Carle Place. Mineola Mayor Scott Strauss, along with members of the Village Department of Public Works, State Senator Jack Martins, County Legislator Rich Nicolello and North Hempstead Town officials attended the meeting.
