My 7-year-old grandson, Lewis, has become a fan of George Washington. He has guided my wife and me on a tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see pictures of his idol. He lives two blocks from the Met and he is a frequent visitor to the museum. Lewis knows his way around the museum like a guide, while I get lost there in about ten minutes.
We decided, on a Sunday morning, to take Lewis to The Frick Museum, to see the artwork there. We stood on a line about a block and a half long to make our entrance. Lewis, his father Gregg, Lorraine and I waited our turn to enter patiently. When we got to the head of the line, a uniformed guard pointed to Lewis and asked abruptly, “How old is that boy?”
Freedom is our cause, but freedom does not come free and many have paid the ultimate price. The America we know would not be the same were it not for the men and women we honor on Memorial Day. All of us at the Long Island State Veterans Home would like to take this opportunity to remember those brave men and women whose ultimate sacrifice has helped to protect the freedoms we enjoy today.
In this year’s Syosset Central School District Board of Education elections the community is fortunate to have someone running who is one of the finest candidates to come along in many years. He’s William Weiner and he deserves your support at the ballot on Tuesday, May 21.
This letter was sent to Carol Hankin, Superintendent of Syosset Schools, and Richard Schaub, Director of Athletics at Syosset School District
This letter is being written by 17 plus families who have discussed the status of the coaching in the district in light of the Rutgers University issues.
For many years, we have complained of the bullying tactics and use of cursing of many of the coaching staff for our children. Many of us have graduates of the school, and some still have student athletes. There are some very dedicated and wonderful coaches on staff, who seem to accomplish making the team experience a positive one without use of these unacceptable tactics.
At the age of five years old, the doctors proclaimed that my son Adam was “uncoordinated.” Adam was the surviving twin and that may have been the reason for his slower physical development. I was told that enrolling him in a soccer program would help his evolution and maturation. After all “every boy can kick a ball”.
I signed him up with the Hicksville Soccer Club and we awaited a call from his future coach. His coach, as it turned out, was a Frenchman who worked as a chef at one of the finer French restaurants in Manhattan. Since the coach held his practices on Wednesdays, my day off, I was able to go to the afternoon practices.
Long Island Wins recently received a $20,000 grant from the Long Island Unitarian Universalists Fund administered through the Long Island Community Foundation. The grant will help the group continue its work building welcoming communities on Long Island and promoting commonsense immigration policy.
“Long Island Wins provides a great resource for helping the community come together around the issues of immigration,” said Mary Beth Guyther, program officer of the Long Island Community Foundation. “It’s important to involve the community, and it takes an organization such as Long Island Wins to build those bridges and to make a change.”
Maryann Sinclair Slutsky, executive director of Long Island Wins, writes a regular column for this newspaper.
Who am I to make or think of making changes in Shakespeare’s plays? I have just taken a course in Shakespeare’s tragedies and comedies. If only the Great Bard would make minor adjustments, the tragedies could become comedies and vice versa -- a comedy is a play that ends happily, a tragedy ends on an unhappy situation.
In “Romeo and Juliet,” if Shakespeare had left out the poisonings in the final scene, Romeo and Juliet could have gone off happily into the sunset and live till their golden wedding anniversary. Such a nice couple, why kill them off so haphazardly? Everyone would leave the theater in a positive mood.
Lorraine, my beautiful wife, and I, were attending a lecture at the Fox Hollow Restaurant on Long Term Health Insurance. We were invited by my favorite stockbroker, Jack Natter of Morgan Stanley. The tall, straight-backed, healthy speaker was Wisconsin-born Wendy Boglioli.
Boglioli ‘s lecture spoke of all the healthy things in life; proper diet, exercise, sleep and don’t overdo anything. She was a perfect example of what living the good life can do for a person.

To All Nassau County residents, Nassau is one of the safest counties in the nation with overall crime at historic lows. We would like to keep it that way, but we need your help. Some crimes are difficult to prevent, but one crime you can help prevent is property theft, which happens largely from automobiles. Protect yourself by always locking your car, even in your driveway, and never leave your pocketbook, wallet, keys, and electronic devices visible from outside the car.
Remember, if you see suspicious activity, dial 911.
Chief Of Department, Nassau County Police
