Letter: Protect Yourself

Friday, 06 November 2009 00:00
The Nassau County Police Department’s advising residents to protect themselves from burglaries by telling them  “If you are unsure of a person’s credentials ask for an office call-back number” seems to suggest that they ask the (possible) burglar himself for that phone number to call in order to confirm his identity. That’s a bad idea because a burglar would only give them  the number of an accomplice who would  verify his (false) legitimacy.  The suspicious homeowner should only call a number he knows to be legitimate from its presence in a phone book—-whether it be to his/her county or town office, the police,  LIPA, Verizon, Cablevision, etc.

Over 60…And Getting Younger

Written by Stanley Greenberg Friday, 06 November 2009 00:00
Knock, Knock!

“Oh, my God!”

As I opened the front door, there in the doorway was a short black-robed figure with the face of “The Scream” by Edvard Munch. When the cadaver-like body spoke, it said in a high-pitched juvenile voice, “trick or treat.”

It was Halloween and the neighborhood was flooded with bands of oddly dressed children each carrying a loot bag. As the kids came to the door their parents waited protectively in the street. The costumes of the day included skeletons, Superman, Elvis, Spiderman, Batman, fairy princesses, Cinderellas, weird scary masks, Casper the Ghost, pirates, Big Bird, Elmo, Barney, baseball and football players and other weird and wonderfully imaginative outfits.

75!

Stan, you are 75 years old!

You have lived through five wars, served in the United States Army, have three children and six grandchildren. I would have to say you are a lucky guy!

It hasn’t been a bed of roses and you have lost a lot of family and good friends along the way, but you are still vertical and moving around. Your tennis game leaves a lot to be desired but occasionally you get the ball back over the net.

 

Letter: Regardless of Political Party, Support John Venditto

As a longtime resident and civic leader in the Town of Oyster Bay, I believe we have been fortunate to have a Town Supervisor who has done a superb job over the last 12 years with his determination and resolve in making the Town of Oyster Bay one of the leading towns in NYS to live.

 

Election Time Policies

Friday, 23 October 2009 00:00

• To make it more of an even playing field for candidates, we will not run columns from incumbents up for election in the three issues prior to an election.

• To be considered for publication, letters should be limited to 300-400 words (one quarter page is roughly 400 words). Letters longer than this may not be used or may be shortened by the editor without contacting the writer.

‘I Was Scammed!’

“Do not – I repeat, do not” open an email from me asking you to be my friend! It is a scam!

You are all my friends, my readers.

I received an email about 10 days ago from a lovely lady in my writing group. She is a kind and wonderful person and she asked me to be her friend. Not wanting to insult her, I followed all the questions until the end. Suddenly, at the end, I saw my entire address book printed out in a long column. I suspected nothing, and then it struck.

Migrating Hawks Ride the Wind

The sun is up a short while, illuminating the dark brown coat of a grazing whitetail deer that turns to look at three humans coming onto Fire Island. Grasses are shimmering in a stiff breeze that will blow all day across this strip of land with a bay on one side and the ocean on the other. I’m with a small group of observers who will be on a platform watching and recording migrating raptors all day.

Stanley Greenberg may be your favorite columnist, but he’s our father and in honor of his 75th birthday we are giving him the week off. Don’t worry, he’ll be back next week with another installment of “Over 60 and Getting Younger.” In the meantime, allow us to introduce you to the Stanley Greenberg you may not know…the Joe Montana of Marshall Lane.

Friday, 09 October 2009 00:00
The Plainview Water District would like to thank the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library and the Plainview Fire Department for their consideration and for making accommodations while the district’s administration building is being renovated.

“It’s great how all intermunicipal authorities work together to benefit our community,” said Plainview Water District Chairman Kevin Langberg.

The Plainview Water District used the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library for its board meetings during the month of September and October 27, and will use the Plainview Fire Department during the month of October.
