Letter: Desperately Seeking Stop Sign

Friday, 25 September 2009 00:00

I wrote a letter to the Town of North Hempstead back in July 2009. I have been getting the run around from all the councilmen and town supervisor and traffic technician office. We need a stop sign on Tennyson Avenue on the corner of Bryant Street in Westbury for the safety of our children and elderly residents.

The cars that come off Old Country Road and out of the Associated food store parking lot go so fast down Tennyson Avenue and the cars that stop at Whittier Street come so fast to Old Country Road. They do not stop for the school bus when the lights are flashing.

Therefore I will speak of my wishes that I want our teachers to impart to our children, their students.

MTA Hearing Testimony

At the invitation of New York State (NYS) Senator Craig Johnson, I testified at a Sept. 3 hearing held at the Nassau County Legislative chamber in Mineola.

The hearing, on the confirmation that Jay Walder – Governor David Paterson’s nominee to be the new MTA chairman – was actually a joint hearing of the NYS Senate’s Standing Committees on Finance, Authorities and Commissions and Corporations. Also present were Long Island Senators Charles Fuschillo, Carl Marcellino, Brian Foley and Owen Johnson.

The American Heart Association’s mission is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. One of the leading preventable causes of these diseases – the growing waistline of America! Being labeled as overweight or obese has disastrous effects on your cardiovascular health.
 

Letter: Calories in Restaurant Food

Friday, 11 September 2009 00:00

I’m like many people in our county who pours over nutrition labels on all the food I buy. I want to know exactly what it is I’m eating, and more importantly, how many calories I’m consuming. As the American Heart Association will tell you, calories “in” should equal calories “out” if you want to maintain your current weight. Our diet should be equivalent to our physical activity. But if we don’t know what we’re eating, how are we to know how many laps to walk around the neighborhood?

 

Letter: There’s Still Time to Weigh In on Lighthouse Project

Friday, 04 September 2009 00:00

Westbury Village Mayor Peter Cavallaro’s published comments on the Lighthouse Development Project scheduled to be built on the site that currently houses the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, sheds more light on some of the crucial issues that should be addressed before the decision to build is made.

In a front-page article in the Aug. 20, 2009 edition of The Westbury Times, Cavallaro’s written comments to the Hempstead Town Board reiterated some of the concerns he has publicly expressed at every meeting on the issue that I have heard him speak. Foremost among them is the question of tax equity for the surrounding communities since they will be affected by the impact from increased traffic, etc. One interesting point in Mayor Cavallaro’s comments is that Westbury is not included in the impact study as it stops short at Old Country Road.

 

Letter: A Message to Relay for Lifers

Friday, 04 September 2009 00:00

I hope this letter finds you all healthy and rejuvenated from a wonderful summer.  I would like to congratulate everyone who participated in this year’s Relay for Life for making it a huge success! Together as a community of friends, families and neighbors, we raised a whopping $80,606!  

The Relay for Life of Carle Place could not have been possible without the help from some really amazing community/committee members, friends, staff at Carle Place High School, and Lisa Schack, our director from the American Cancer Society (ACS)!  This year, it was great to give up some of my responsibilities and have various committee members take them over.  Each committee member involved in the planning and execution of the event did a fabulous job!  The entire committee was a pleasure to work with and did a great job of keeping in focus of why we put this event together; it would have been impossible without you!

August is National Immunization Awareness Month

It’s August and summer is quickly coming to a close. With so much to do, keeping up with routine vaccinations can easily be put on the back burner. That’s why August has been named National Immunization Awareness Month, a time to remind people about the benefits of vaccines and to encourage them to remain up to date on immunizations.
