Statue unveiled in Gerry Park

The Ellen E. Ward Clock Tower is the symbol of Roslyn. But a new structure, unveiled last Saturday, now promises to have the same architectural impact on the village.

 

Last Saturday, the Roslyn Landmark Society and the Town of North Hempstead hosted StatueFEST to celebrate the unveiling of the Mackay Horse Statue in Gerry Park. 

 

Letter: The Right Way To Do Business

Thursday, 17 October 2013 00:00

The way in which the North Hempstead Town Board and the Hempstead Town Board recently handled similar situations is, in my mind, a testament to the true distinction between the GOP machine and the North Hempstead Democrats.

 

Faced with the need to appoint a town clerk in the wake of the Republican town clerk being convicted of harassment charges involving employees in his office, the GOP-controlled Hempstead Town Board took the “typical politics route”— appointing the individual currently running for election as a Republican to the position of town clerk. This gives their candidate a tremendous advantage as an incumbent, with the full power of the office, as she runs in the November election.

 

Heart Procedure For Russian Youths

Written by Joe Scotchie Friday, 18 October 2013 00:00

It is not uncommon for young people throughout the world to come to St. Francis Hospital of Roslyn for medical procedures that are not available in their native country.

 

Such was the case last Oct. 2, when two Russian youngsters,  Katya Lebedeva and Anastasia Bakhtiarova were the recipients of successful heart surgeries at the hospital, both performed by Dr. Sean Levchuck.

 

On that date, Katya underwent a procedure that St. Francis doctors described as “minimally invasive,” one designed to succeed where two procedures in Katya’s native Russia fell short.

 

Election ’13: Issues In The Town

Written by Wendy Kreitzman Thursday, 17 October 2013 00:00

As Election Day draws closer and the Town of North Hempstead will soon have a new supervisor, several pressing issues have surfaced. With Nassau County Legislator Judi Bosworth seeking the office as a Democrat and Town Councilwoman Dina DeGiorgio running on the Republican ticket, three major points stand out: transparency in government, problems with the town’s building department and the question of what the town does for the villages.

 

All along both candidates have emphasized a real need for transparency in government. Discussing the issue with Bosworth, she reiterated the need for a very open government, with town board meetings streamed live on the Internet, as well as eventually televising them on public access channels. She also spoke of making better use of the town’s website, with pertinent news regarding village boards.

The drive along Roslyn Road to Jericho Turnpike is one of the scenic pleasures of the North Shore as the suburban sprawl is temporarily left behind.

The unveiling, which is set for 2 p.m., hopes to attract not just a handsome crowd, but also an impressive slate of featured speakers.

Jewish adoption service hopes to expand 

For many couples, adoption can be a long and difficult process, including costly trips to foreign destinations, often with no guarantee of success.

 

One Florida-based operation, Jewish Adoption and Foster Care Options (JAFCO), is trying to make that easier, offering interested couples a chance to adopt without leaving the country. Recently JAFCO took a step forward in helping to bring their services to the New York City area. Last summer, they held their fourth annual Long Island fundraising day at the Glen Head Country Club. The successful event attracted 140 people and according to organizers, raised $20,000. “It was a beautiful evening,” said Rana Bell, JAFCO director of Northeast development.
