With short deadlines because of the New Year’s Day holiday on Monday and the paper being completed on Friday, Dec. 29 – there was no correct answer to the mystery picture as of noon.
Tony Pilla alerted us to a problem on the Internet version of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “I am sad to say this week’s picture was blank again although there was a picture of last week’s - of two gentlemen talking. [That was of Town of Oyster Bay Commissioner of Planning and Development Fred Ipolitto talking to a town employee at the end of a town board meeting.]
“Has anyone else had this problem on the Internet version of the paper? I do miss trying to guess what the mystery picture is.”
Mr. Pilla added a Happy New Year greeting to all.
We speedily sent a copy of the photograph to Mr. Pilla and he answered back, “The painting looks like a picture of the Seawanhaka Yacht Club and the whole picture itself was at a party at the club itself.”
Right on! The painting is by Centre Island artist William Jonas. The photograph was taken at the Life Enrichment Center of Oyster Bay art show exhibit fundraiser held there last month.
Billy Minicozzi made a great guess saying, “It’s an old fireplace in an old museum, maybe Sagamore Hill in Oyster Bay.”
As to sports, Mr. Minicozzi said, “The Super Bowl takes place the first Sunday in February and I’m looking forward to the Denver Broncos and the Green Bay Packers playing in the game.” The playoffs are still to take place but as we go to press on Friday, Dec. 30, the Broncos need to win or the Raiders have to lose this weekend – for the Broncos to be in the playoffs.
Professor Jack Mandel called and said, “I’m not calling for the mystery picture but thank you for my picture that was in Heart of the Harbor on the same page. I received the issue today, Dec. 29. I’m sure my neighbors will get a kick out of it. I wish a healthy and happy New Year to you and your family. And let’s hope for a mild winter.
“I’m keeping people abreast of what I am doing with upcoming seminars at the local libraries and will try to get it to you in a timely manner,” said the Nassau Community College marketing professor.
