Around the Town with Lou - September 10, 2010

Davenport’s Restaurant was the happy scene when John and Jean Kuskowski, along with her mom June Lettieri, son James and his wife Barbara, celebrated their grandson, James going off to the University of Pittsburgh to start his college career. Good luck to him. Also at another table were Ken and Robin Ford who, along with his brother Steve, owns Willis Hobbies.

There are big problems at the pump house at the Mineola Pool. The electric power supply to the motors that pump the water into the pool are experiencing a major drop in rush voltage during very hot days. When the rush voltage goes down, the amperage increases and heats up the pump motors. When this happens, the motors activate its mechanism which stops the motors until they cool down. These pumps are 18 years old and will have to be replaced. In other matters at the pool the slide had a minor problem and was closed for two days and then re-opened. Several women said that the shower water was too cold. At the last meeting Michael Vezzi had much information on pumps and Bruce Burns said that the facility was run beautifully this season.

Who are the people stealing the handicapped parking spots at Corpus Christi Church’s parking field? These drivers are taking the spots of people who really need them. Next time you see cars illegally parked get the plates and call the police.

As far as I know nobody has ever seen a small rat.” He was really, really big. “He was huge.” “He was as big as a cat.” Are none of these rodents ever small or medium or do we all love to exaggerate?

John DaVanzo has the perfect job as the “tour guide” of the Village Hall. A long time village official, trustee, deputy mayor, town clerk of North Hempstead, one time member of the pool board and library board, there is nothing that John does not know about our village. If you know John, you are not surprised that he refuses to accept any pay. Our Community Pool bears his name. He also likes to dine at Cugini’s on occasions.
