Support Haber

The state senate race for the 7th district has been heating up between Democrat Adam Haber and Republican Jack Martins. Throughout the race several issues have been misrepresented. [Read more...]

No Apple Bashing

Enough, I am tired of the Apple Store bashing letters in the Manhasset Press. This week a letter with the headline, “Unsafe Driving by Apple Store” seems like a subtle or not so subtle attempt to embarrass a national retailer who elected to build a modern, tasteful store in our community.

Mayors Support Martins

This November, as we do every year, we will choose who we want serving us as our elected representatives. One of the most important choices this year will be who should represent us in the State Senate. We strongly urge our neighbors to re-elect our current representative, Senator Jack Martins.

As a long-time employee and current office manager of The Zerbini Family Circus, I would like to address the comments in letters to the editor from Oct. 19. [Read more...]

Cruel To Animals

On Thursday, Oct. 2, the Manhasset Rotary Club sponsored the Zerbini Family Circus at Memorial Field. I appreciate so much the efforts by community members to plan and create charitable events that make Manhasset such a wonderful, family-friendly place to live. [Read more...]

Dangerous Tree

My wife Janet, my family, my friends, my neighbors, and I (continuous full time resident of Manhasset for over 32 years) are concerned about a dead tree that is located near the curb at 127 Knickerbocker Road, Manhasset. I called 311 today in reference to a previous call I made on Aug. 8 concerning case number 38332, i.e., the dead tree. I was told by the 311 agent that the town inspected the tree and will be responsible for “trimming” branches from the tree. [Read more...]

The Work of LTFPC Committee

We were each members of the Long-Term Facilities Planning Committee (LTFPC), which helped develop the bond proposal that will be up for approval on December 3rd. We are writing to explain the process behind the proposal’s development, to highlight some of its key components, and to dispel some misconceptions that have circulated in the community.

Vote For Astorino

Rob Astorino is the last and only hope of the N.Y. Republican Party. Over the last few years, I looked on in horror as the N.Y. Republicans systematically destroyed themselves. It was a Keystone Cops slapstick joke. I could imagine that even the Dems watched in disbelief. The great fall started with the N.Y. Repubs supporting gay marriage. [Read more...]

As I passed the parking lot, a car driven by a young man turned into the southbound lane and headed north, directly at my car which was traveling south. [Read more...]
