He knocked her down, but not out. One very brave woman wasn’t going to let her handbag and a mugger get away. The Third Squad reported the details of a robbery that occurred on Tuesday, Dec. 21 at 6 p.m. in Mineola.

When the victim chased the subject and grabbed him, the suspect pushed her down, causing her to fall on her hands and knees. She suffered minor abrasions.
Get ready for some fresh made burritos, quesadillas and vegetable wraps. Chipotle Mexican Grill is coming to Mineola.
The board of trustees unanimously approved the permit for the restaurant in an empty storefront in the shopping center on the northeast corner of Herricks Road and Jericho Turnpike. The Grill Will be next to Harmon’s, which also includes a TD Bank, Panera Bread as well as other storefronts.
“A long time coming,” Bill Urianek said at last week’s board meeting; a long time indeed.
Urianek, with the help of other residents (both in and outside Mineola), has been on a quest; a quest to bestow gratitude upon veteran Christopher Levi. With the help of Urianek, countless Mineola residents, an Elmont resident and the Mineola Fire Department, checks were donated to Levi of Holbrook, who was injured overseas in an effort for him to purchase a special “Vet-Dog,” a trained dog for injured veterans.
Mineola knew this day would come sooner or later. After eight years as village mayor, Senator-elect Jack Martins formally resigned at last week’s board of trustees meeting.
The Mineola Volunteer Fire Department was certainly put to the test recently.

The Village of Mineola approved the special use permit application of Wei Ji Lin to establish a Chinese take-out restaurant on East Old Country Road at last week’s board of trustees meeting. The restaurant would sit in a row of stores located between Juniper Avenue and Geranium Avenue on Old Country Road. It seems like the perfect spot to complement the fairly new Kemistry Restaurant and Lounge and stores of the like.
The Mineola School District’s external accounting firm reported to the board of education at its most recent meeting at the Willis Avenue School. Dave Tellier of Nawrocki Smith, LLP detailed the district’s financial stability and basically said “we’re in good shape.”
The external auditor analyzes the district’s financial statements to see if they’re accurate and consistent with accounting standards so that the board has enough “wiggle room” to operate in assessing the financial condition of the district. Tellier said no glaring weaknesses or discrepancies existed within the 60-page report and the district was found to be in excellent condition financially.
At first considered a long-shot, he won by a nose hair.
After all the counts, recounts, deliberations and court sessions, the 7th Senate District has a new senator. Mineola Mayor Jack Martins was declared the victor over incumbent Craig Johnson in the aftermath of the conundrum that was the 7th Senate District race last Saturday morning.
County Executive Edward P. Mangano and the MTA have been grappling for months over who should pay for bus service in Nassau. This summer, the MTA moved to take its sizable subsidy that has been keeping service running out of its budget for next year. The county recently passed a budget that has not raised its contribution to cover this expense. Therefore, as the end of the year fast approaches, the clock is ticking for the 102,000 daily riders who wait for someone to step in with a solution to save Long Island Bus.
The Mineola School District Board of Education began its meeting Nov. 18 at the Willis Avenue School with the intention of putting up a second bond vote with two propositions totaling $6.1 million.
