Retired Nassau County Supreme Court Justice Hon. Ira B. Warshawsky was one of the latest to have his portrait added to the Supreme Court building in Mineola recently, continuing a long standing tradition that dates back to the early 1900s.
More than 90 portraits hang in the court’s ceremonial courtroom.
“It’s a nice honor,” said Warshawsky. “It makes me think about what I’ve experienced over all my years on the bench.”
Whether it’s for fresh breads, cakes, pastries or cookies, Carle Place residents know Cardinali Bakery is the place to go.
Cardinali Bakery on Westbury Avenue has been a staple in the community since 1960. And it’s come a long way over 53 years, starting as a small corner bread shop to providing wholesale breads for country clubs and expanding to include a new specialty cake shop.
Cardinali Bakery is co-owned by brothers Joe and Agostino Mauro. Joe’s relationship with the store goes back to 1977, when he was working at the bakery as a side job to earn extra money during high school. What started as a side job, became full time, and Joe fell in love with the business, opening his own Italian French bakery on Maple Avenue in Westbury in 1987. He ran the bakery from 1987 to 1995, before taking over the Cardinali’s legacy in 1996.
Westbury Village Justice and Garden City attorney Thomas Liotti might be adding another title to his resume: that of President-Elect of the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA). He recently announced his candidacy for the position, saying he believes he can bring an energy into the bar association that can promote meaningful changes, such as more pro bono legal services.
Liotti says he decided to run for President-Elect of the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) because he’s an activist and reformer.
Bishop Lionel Harvey, president of the Unified New Cassel Community Revitalization Corp. and senior pastor of First Baptist Cathedral of Westbury, sometimes drives up and down Prospect Avenue at night, marveling at how much it’s changed in the last few years.
“I see the lights, the median, the businesses. It brings tears to my eyes because 13 years ago, it was a totally different situation here,” said Harvey.
Noticing a less bumpier ride as you drive through Carle Place? It’s probably because the community recently received full-scale roadway resurfacing projects, as part of the Highway Department’s 2013 season.
According to town officials, nearly 40,000 linear feet of Town roads were repaved, including 7,000 in Carle Place. A long awaited drainage project was also completed in the Appletree Lane area.
Will your children be trick or treating at the home of a registered sex offender? It is a chilling thought for any parent.
There are 21 registered sex offenders in Westbury and one in Carle Place, according to the state’s Sex Offender Registry. To find out exact addresses and detailed information, you can go to www.criminaljustice.ny.gov/nso and search by zip code. Each community’s registered offenders are listed with photos, addresses and even vehicles registered to them.
While parental vigilance is the first line of defense, for the past nine years the Nassau County Department of Probation has conducted “Operation Safe Sweets,” designed to protect children from sex offenders on Halloween through monitoring convicted sex offenders as Oct. 31 approaches.
“It’s a program that has served as a model on the state and national level and we’re very proud of it,” said Nassau County’s acting director of probation, John Fowler. “It makes a lot of sense, and definitely makes people safer.”
A day after the middle school shooting in Nevada, Nassau County officials announced a new panic alarm program which will allow each school in the county to connect directly to the Nassau County Police Department in case of an emergency.
“The schools in Nassau County are a safe place, and will remain a safe place,” said County Executive Ed Mangano at a press conference at Carle Place High School last Tuesday. “Our planning and communication has increased dramatically in the past few years, culminating in this very important two-way communicator, (which) is a very important step forward in protecting our students, teachers and administrators.”
With the election fast approaching, the Carle Place Civic Association hosted a number of political hopefuls in a “Meet the Candidates” night last Wednesday. In front of a packed room of local residents, each of a bevy of candidates was given a chance to make an impression on prospective voters.
Both seasoned pols seeking another shot as well as newcomers to the political arena came to educate the public on their experience and platforms.
When Fichter’s Florist closed its doors in 2000, Bud Fichter thought his days of gardening would be more limited to his own yard. He had spent nearly a lifetime working in the flower shop his father opened in 1934, which had grown to become a Long Island staple. But just because he was ready to retire, didn’t mean his bills were.
So Bud, along with his wife Barbara, got jobs at the Nassau County greenhouses based out of Eisenhower Park. For the last 12 years, the Carle Place couple has been running the show, responsible for growing, maintaining, arranging and planting the 40,000 plants seen all over Nassau County parks.
Homecoming is full of traditions—football games, floats, parades, dances. But this year marks the start of a new tradition for Westbury. This year, the Westbury School District, along with the Village of Westbury, will present its first Alumni of Distinction award, given to an exceptional graduate. The inaugural award is dedicated to the late J. Alfred Cannon, a renowned physician who dedicated his life to community service.
Cannon graduated from Westbury High School in 1946. He was dearly loved by his classmates, and voted junior as well as senior class president- — an amazing accomplishment at a time when less than one percent of the student population was African American.
