Children’s Summer Festival

With the arrival of the warm summer months comes the opportunity for parents to spend more time having fun with their kids. One great way to spend quality time as a family is by attending one of the town’s Children’s Summer Festival shows together.

In July, three exciting shows are traveling to our town parks. All three shows are free and suitable for all ages. At “Erik’s Reptile Edventure” children have the opportunity to learn about the importance of science and nature. The show offers a fun-filled educational experience that encourages kids to learn about reptiles, amphibians and bugs. For those who are looking for a good laugh and spellbinding magic, “The Magic & Comedy of Jim McClenahan” is sure to please. Finally, children will enjoy “The Tell Tale Storytellers,” which will entertain audiences with their singing and storytelling.

Dome Illumination to Raise Awareness of Pancreatic Cancer

This month, Nassau County, in cooperation with the Lustgarten Foundation, is hosting a ceremony and building illumination for Pancreatic Cancer Research. Over 37,000 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer each year –which is why our goal is to raise awareness in order to prevent and fight this disease. According to the National Cancer Institute, the overall 5-year relative survival rate for 1999-2005 was 5.5 percent. We must work together to thwart pancreatic cancer.

Letter: Senate Has Work to Do to Control Property Taxes

Friday, 10 July 2009 00:00

While Senator Dean Skelos and his colleagues are playing political games in Albany, the state budget deficit keeps ballooning and nothing is being done to control property taxes. When this chaos ends, legislators should tackle rising education costs. To do that, teachers’ and school administrators’ salaries must be frozen and their lifetime health benefits eliminated since over half of our property taxes go for paying these salaries and benefits.

 

Letter: Proven Results of Working Together

Friday, 03 July 2009 00:00

This past month, our community has seen huge amounts of rainfall. For the first time in many, many years, our residents have been able to safely travel on Hempstead Avenue without the need to dodge deep ponds of water. Please remember as you drive up and down the avenue in the future, no longer impeded by overflowing catch basins, that a community working together with the West Hempstead Civic Association and County Legislator Muscarella accomplished this project. It’s about time that West Hempstead received back some of our tax money through capital projects.

Letter: Hold Your Applause

Thursday, 18 June 2009 14:20

West Hempsteaders gave a warm welcome to Town Supervisor Kate Murray at the recent annual meeting of the civic association.

Granted, we are a cordial bunch, but I must confess, this generous reception was much more than a polite courtesy.
