Jean-Pierre, a restaurant manager in New York City, said the strike would be a strain for him. He plans to carpool if the strike occurs.

“Every New Yorker should have said ‘hey, let’s join the infantry and let’s go back at them,’” he said on Friday, July 11 at Memorial Park during a Village of Mineola fireworks show and concert by the

Nassau Pops Symphony Orchestra. “New York always gives that reputation how we’re bad-ass.”

He displayed banners for two hours between exits 40 and 41 every Friday since September 2013, he said.

“Today’s a day of endings and beginnings, a day full of mixed feelings,” Mineola High School Principal Ed Escobar said on Satuday, June 28 on stage at the Tilles Center at C.W. Post during the school’s 123rd commencement exercises.


Mixed due to the happiness shared by the 195 graduates up on stage, but with a small touch of bittersweet due to the absence of one high-profile member: Frank Trivigno, who was tragically killed in an accident in upstate New York last year at the age of 17.


“Because of how kind-hearted Frank was, we united as a class and were inspired to keep his spirit alive with everything we do,” said class president Emilia Beszterda.
