Letter: Calling Tom Suozzi

Friday, 08 February 2013 00:00

The upcoming election for Nassau County Executive is extremely important for the future of Nassau County.  The election is especially crucial for young residents who hope to stay and raise their families in Nassau.  

Under Ed Mangano’s control, Nassau County has reached an all time low.  Mangano’s mismanagement over the past three years has resulted in disastrous outcomes for our residents.

 

Letter: Gratitude For Old Westbury Residents

Friday, 01 February 2013 00:00

I wanted to write to thank fellow Old Westbury area residents that generously gave of their time and means to help impact thousands of hurting kids this Christmas. Together, we were able to pack 15,255 shoeboxes—filled with toys, school supplies and basic necessities—for Operation Christmas Child. Our packed shoebox gifts, joined by millions of others, were shipped to needy children in 100 countries. During the 2012 collection season, Operation Christmas Child reached a milestone—more than 100 million children have been impacted by the power of a simple gift since 1993.

 

Letter: A United State In America

Friday, 11 January 2013 00:00

As a high school teacher of social studies with a background in law, I suppose that I get way too excited over historical events. One of my former students recently reminded me how “out of control” (OOC) I was during the course of the 2000 Presidential Election fiasco. I will admit that on top of being a history aficionado, I am truly amazed at history as it is happening! A very recent historical event (far too tragic, I might add) is the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

In the wake of this act, there are many who are attempting to remedy the situation. As a nation, we want to do something, ANYTHING to prevent a reoccurrence of this carnage. There are a few who are putting forth their very best efforts to make this a hysterical rather than historical event. The irony of the situation is that there are people whose views are diametrically opposed on the issue of gun control utilizing precisely identical tactics to further entrench arguments which we have heard repeatedly over the years. The real dangerous ones here are those who have the power to change our laws. Short of amending the constitution, we must rely on our elected officials to do something.

 

Letter: Well Done, Mayor Cavallaro

Friday, 11 January 2013 00:00

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Mayor of Westbury Village, Mr. Peter Cavallaro. He has done an excellent job and we wish him well now and in the future.

The village trustees are also doing excellent work. After Hurricane Sandy had passed, we drove around the neighborhood and witnessed Trustee Jefferson actively helping and directing the residents in the area. He is a very loyal and conscientious trustee. It makes us proud to see our elected officials, who we put our trust in, actively carrying out their duties so effectively.

Please keep up the good work and we will continue to be watchful and give thanks for your efforts. May God bless you and Happy New Year to the mayor and his entire staff.

Mr. and Mrs. Hinkson

Letter: Victory Through Vigilance

Friday, 28 December 2012 00:00

Over the past several weeks, the acronym PILOT has caught the attention of community residents, and caused them to band together in solidarity of resistance once it was learned what the motive was all about.

Embroiled in this controversy are The Bristal Assisted Living Facility located in Westbury and the Nassau County IDA (Industrial Development Agency); the former sought an extension of its PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) privileges from the latter, the quasi-governmental agency that has the authority to grant it.

 

Letter: Mayor’s Holiday Season Message

Friday, 28 December 2012 00:00

I want to take this opportunity to wish each Westbury resident a very happy and holy holiday season, and a healthy 2013. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or are of any other faith or tradition, the holidays are a time to reflect on the many blessings that we enjoy, both personally and collectively as a community. Let us all take some time to be thankful for these many blessings.

As we celebrate our holy days, let us also remember the servicemen and women who remain in harm’s way and away from their families this holiday season. Let us pray that they may soon be rejoined with their families and loved ones and that 2013 will be a year of peace.

 

Letter: CP Arts And Education Aids Freeport School

On Friday, Nov. 16, the Carle Place Arts & Education Booster Club held our annual fundraising concert, BLAST!

Every year Carle Place students, teachers, alumni and community members join together for a night of music and fun to raise funds for the arts programs in Carle Place. This year, our students were so moved by the tragedy that hit us all and Freeport in specific, that the students lobbied to share part of our fundraising efforts with the students at Giblyn Elementary School.
