Letter: Support School Budget And Roof Bond

Friday, 11 May 2012 00:00
The biblical imperative to “turn the other cheek” is often misconstrued to mean one should allow another to attack more than once, unchallenged. I choose to believe the meaning of the teaching to be this: give those who would attempt to harm you the opportunity to make a better choice—to do the right thing.

For decades, educational professionals working in Port Washington have devoted their lives to providing quality public education to the wonderful children in this community. Working in partnership with parents and community groups, we have far exceeded what the statistics would predict, given the wide range of socioeconomic, cultural and academic backgrounds our students represent. However, the dedicated teachers in Port Washington don’t view their students through a single lens. We strive to help every student imagine and achieve goals beyond expectations…and we often succeed. Our partnership has produced remarkable results.


Editorial: Pete Fornatale Signs Off

“There goes the last DJ/Who plays what he wants to play/And says what he wants to say, hey hey hey...” – Tom Petty “The Last DJ”

On April 26, a seminal voice that was an integral part of the local airwaves was silenced when Port Washington’s hometown hero Pete Fornatale died from a stroke at the age of 66. Part of the class of free-form rock DJs whose ranks included Dennis Elsas, Vince Scelsa and Carole Miller along with late lamented names like WNEW-FM icons Scott Muni, Fornatale mentor Rosko and Alison Steele, the former high school teacher was part of a vanguard of FM broadcasters who counterbalanced the condescending and infantilized manner in which the dominant AM stations of the ’60s and early’70s treated rock ’n’ roll. And while corporate radio monoliths eventually wrapped their rapacious tentacles around any semblance of creativity by way of narrow formatting, skeletal playlists and jocks who were essentially scripted if not automated, Fornatale was one of the dwindling group of Don Quixotes titling at the Clear Channel windmills of the world.


Letter: Walls Around Cell Tower Violate Village Code

Friday, 04 May 2012 00:00

(Editor’s note: this letter was sent to Steven Leventhal, the attorney who represented the Village of Manorhaven in the lawsuit brought against the village by AG Towers in 2009 regarding the stop-work order. It was also sent to Port Washington News for publication. Leventhal has sent two letters over the past few weeks to William D. Wexler, the attorney representing AG Towers, in an attempt to bring discussions regarding relocation of the cell tower back to the table.)

Following a conversation with David L. Mammina, R.A., superintendent of buildings for the Village of Manorhaven, we are advised to contact you directly in regards to a violation of the village code and permit by AG Towers, so that you may take the proper legal step to eliminate the violation.


Letter: The Red Stocking Revue

Friday, 27 April 2012 00:00
Thank you to everyone who participated in The Red Stocking Revue, including the businesses that support the production. I can’t imagine what a huge undertaking it must be to put the show together. It is always a wonderfully entertaining evening for such an important cause. This is yet another Port Washington event that makes me proud to live in this town. Again, great job, and kudos to all!

Letter: Parking Meters Should Be More Than One Hour

Friday, 20 April 2012 00:00

I would like to see a change in our parking meters. The meters are for only one hour on Main Street and other parking lots. If you want to do any shopping in town, you cannot leave your car for more than one hour.

I went for a perm the other day. The girl who was doing my hair had to go out three times to put in a quarter. The meters should be for three hours. This way, when you go shopping, you do not have to worry about getting a ticket.


Letter: Response To ‘Schimel Hails Inclusion Of Microstamping’

Friday, 20 April 2012 00:00

Regarding your recent article “Schimel Hails Inclusion Of Microstamping,” please consider the following facts.

CoBIS (Combined Ballistic Identification System) was designed to identify guns by creating and using a database of spent cartridges. After 10 years of operation, costing more than $44 million dollars, not a single crime was solved through its use. Hence, Governor Cuomo rightly abandoned this failed and wasteful program. A link to the details is

I am writing in response to the article on the Manhasset Isle cell tower that was published in the March 22 issue of Port Washington News.


Letter: Radio Frequency Emissions

Friday, 13 April 2012 00:00
The jury is in: Radio Frequency (RF) emissions – those coming from microwave ovens, cellular phones and communication tower base stations produce substantial electromagnetic radiation (EMF). There is no standard for safe levels of exposure. Each country sets its own level of safety and the U.S. level is among the highest.

While all people and wildlife populations are at risk, children are the most vulnerable. The closer you are to RF devices the more the absorption. Studies in Germany, Brazil, Israel, and England point to strong evidence the EM radiation from cell towers is damaging to health. Empirical evidence leaves little doubt as to the danger of this invisible threat.


Letter: Cell Tower Zoning

Friday, 06 April 2012 00:00
Zoning is one of the most critical decisions a village board can make regarding the welfare of its residents. In Manorhaven, homes are situated in the residential district, commercial buildings in the commercial district and “telecommunications facilities” only in the government, not-for-profit, G-1 district.
