This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks and the town will be honoring the victims, their families and first responders by unveiling a monument that features a 19-foot-long beam from the World Trade Center.

Manorhaven:

Dozens of attendees are expected to join the Village of Manorhaven Mayor Jim Avena, the trustees and staff for a full 9/11 ceremony. Members of the clergy will lead the audience in prayer, select speakers will say a few words and Veterans will provide a gun salute. In addition to conducting this memorable service, the village has installed a 9/11 Memorial Garden, a monument honoring Port Washington residents who died on September 11, 2001, a memorial inside the courtroom and another monument that features a section of a steel girder from the World Trade Center. The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m.

Community Supports NOSH After Fire

BY JENNIFER CORR

jcorr@antonmediagroup.com

W

hile the fire on Aug. 24 ripped through the VFW Post 347 in Glen Cove, the building is still standing because of the Glen Cove Volunteer Fire Department’s and surrounding fire departments hasty response. One part of the building that experienced the most damage, however, is where NOSH, a program of the North Shore Soup Kitchen, a local nonprofit that provides groceries for those struggling with food insecurity, operates. “It was two months worth of food for our families and we had about 23 or 24 refrigerators and freezers that are basically unusable,” Christine Rice, the chair of NOSH, said. But with a community like Glen Cove surrounding NOSH and the VFW Post 347, nothing is impossible, as the community has ensured that those NOSH serves will continue to be fed. NOSH serves hundreds of families across the North Shore, providing them fresh ingredients to make nutritious meals for their families. NOSH, which had not always been partnered with the North Shore Soup Kitchen, was founded by Courtney Callahan of Locust Valley during the pandemic. She wanted to ensure that no one in the community went hungry in the face of consequences of the pandemic, like job loss. Since the program’s inception, it has operated out of numerous locations such as Glen Cove High School and the Church of St. Rocco. With their new headquarters in the VFW Post 347 unusable for now, NOSH will need to find a new place to operate to continue its mission. Until then, the community has stepped up by donating time, food and money. “When people had realized that the fire had occurred, we were receiving calls and emails of people asking what they could do,” Rice said. “They were offering financial donations or food that they could drop off. It’s really been overwhelming and we’re very grateful.” City of Glen Cove Councilman Gaitley Stevenson-Mathews two

Because of a fast response from local fire departments, the VFW Post 347 in Glen Cove is still standing. Photo by Jennifer Corr days after the fire was delivering 18 meals to families. People near and far donated food to make the endeavor possible. Anna Maria Bencivenni Gulino had heard about the fire all the way from Queens,so she decided to drive all the way to Glen Cove to drop off groceries, including fresh avocados. Rabbi Dr. Janet Liss of North Country Reform Temple and Grace Blank also donated groceries after purchasing canned meats and other critical

items from BJs. Stevenson-Mathews, who has been delivering food with VFW member Joe Moores for a year, said it simply: “This is Glen Cove.” And Rice said she had to agree. “While neighbors and friends were helping me in serving those on my list, other drivers, volunteers and organizations across the Glen Cove area were also hard at work, making sure the [over 600] families served by NOSH were receiving information

and access to food,” StevensonMathews said. “In a gracious way, some of the other pantries in the area extended their hours, some drivers were able to pick up food at other locations and some who typically received food delivered to their homes were able to travel to other locations.” While NOSH works to find a new headquarters and get back to the business of helping the community, Rice said the community can support NOSH by making a donation in the form of food or money. NOSH was in attendance at the Glen Cove Downtown Sounds event on Aug. 27 raising awareness and support about their organization and mission and on Sept. 1, Veronica Beard Americana Manhasset held a special event where 20 percent of their proceeds were donated to NOSH to aid in its recovery. “It was so wonderful that nobody was in the building and got hurt, but we know that we’re working really hard from the board, to operations, to volunteers, because we know that we will be back up and running stronger than ever and that we will be able to help the families that we can,” Rice said. “The community has been wonderful in helping us.” As for the VFW Post 347, veteran Ben Farnan said the post is currently in communication with representatives and local officials to apply for a grant in order to rebuild. The post is also looking for a temporary place to conduct meetings and events for the veterans who see the post and the group of veterans as a home away from home. “We have to go through the insurance company and the fire marshals and inspectors and any work we do we are going to have permits drawn,” Farnan said. “We don’t know how long we’ll be incapacitated which will directly impact [NOSH] as well.” To donate and support NOSH, visit northshoresoupkitchen.org/ donate.

Hicksville Water District Celebrates First Smart Controller Rebate Program Recipient District offers $150 smart controller rebates to eligible residents and it was great to express our appreciation to Jean.” The district is offering $150 rebates to the first 50 eligible residents who register and qualify for the program. Smart controllers are significantly more efficient than standard irrigation controllers and are the single best way for residents to save water with next to no effort. Once a smart controller is installed, the device uses a Wi-Fi connection to link up to local weather stations so it can predict forecasts and automatically adjust watering schedules. This ability allows the controller to understand exactly how much water a lawn needs in order to stay healthy while preventing over-watering. These systems have proven to reduce irrigation consumption by as much as 30 percent, helping residents save both water and money on their next bill.

Resident Jean Karpen (center) was joined by her son, David (second from left), as Hicksville Water District Commissioners William Schuckmann (left), Nicholas Brigandi and Karl Schweitzer presented her with a giant check for $150 for her status as the first recipient of the district’s Smart Controller Rebate Program.

Karpen was the first recipient of the district’s Smart Controller Rebate Program, which offers qualified residents a $150 rebate on smart irrigation controllers to encourage the switch to top-of-the-line technology, which helps them conserve water while they irrigate their properties. “Water is essential to everything we do as a society, so it is imperative that we do what we can, when we can, to conserve it,” HWD Chairman Karl Schweitzer said. “Smart irrigation controllers are one of the best ways for residents to conserve water while still keeping their properties well-irrigated and healthy. We are thrilled to have our rebate program up and running

12th Annual Over 50 Fair Returns At A New Venue

he Over 50 Fair took place in Melville for ten years, first at the Melville Marriott and then at the Hilton Long Island/Huntington. COVID hit, so last year’s expo, geared towards adults age 50+, took place as a virtual conference benefiting The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network). This year’s event, its 12th annual, on Sunday, September 26 from 10 to 4:30, will be at a new venue, Samanea Mall, the former Source Mall in Westbury. Samanea is a mostly empty, spacious facility where Baby Boomers and Seniors can spread out and feel comfortable. There will be more space between booths, wide aisles, very high ceilings and huge storefronts used as classrooms with chairs set far apart. The Over 50 Fair annually entertains and educates many Long Islanders. This event has built a loyal following among the Boomer Generation due to its consistent presentation of various classes, products, and services they find appealing. In the Singles Lounge sponsored by MTN Matchmaking, singles can relax, mingle and perhaps meet their special someone. For those who like to gamble, there will be a blackjack table with funny money, where attendees can play the popular casino game, compliments of New York Entertainment. Each of these activities was enjoyed by many in 2019. At the most recent in-person Over 50 Fair, attendee Danielle Greco, who posted the event on her Meetup, shared, “What an amazing event. I met so many people and made so many new friends. Looking forward to next year’s event.” Some of this year’s classes include “How to Improve Your Dating and Sex Life After 50” by Maureen Tara Nelson, “Mindfulness Meditation” with Janis Abrams of Gentle Soul Discoveries, and “Savvy Social Security Planning for Women” with Katherine Martin of Cetera Investors. Additional classes will include Retirement Fulfillment and Hypnosis. Over 50 Fair is the brainchild of East Hills resident Barbara Kaplan, who also coordinates the hugely successful All Kids Fair each April. She said that the Over 50 Fair is “Overflowing with Opportunities for Age 50+.” “Our attendees enjoy the free health screenings and consults and much more,” Kaplan said. Each year, businesses and nonprofits promote local products and services, including health and wellness, education, travel and financial services. Many local beauty queens from the

Great Neck Water District’s Nitrogen Removal Far Exceeds State Expectations It is no secret that nitrogen discharge is one of the greatest threats to Long Island’s bays. More and more towns and villages are removing septic systems and replacing them with sewer systems or new smart septic systems to limit the amount of nitrogen that ends up in our bays. Due to its smart investments, efficient operations and care for the environment, the Great Neck Water Pollution Control District (GNWPCD) is preventing excess nitrogen from entering Manhasset Bay. “Our chief goal at the Great Neck Water Pollution Control District is to protect our environment and the health of our service area,” GNWPCD Chairman Steve Reiter said. “As a waterfront community, it is vital that we limit the amount of nitrogen that goes into our natural environment, and we are proud to say that the GNWPCD does so in ways

that far exceed expectations. Our treatment facility is always running efficiently and effectively, and this is a testament to the hard work of our employees and superintendent.” Since the GNWPCD has been in operation, its nitrogen removal has consistently met and surpassed the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation requirements. The District upgraded its treatment facility several years ago, allowing the inclusion of the Village of Great Neck’s sewer system and enabling the District to eliminate an antiquated sewage treatment plant. The original plant’s 1.5 million gallons per day flow capacity is now being treated at a much higher level and nitrogen removal rate before entering the bay. From 2014 onwards, the District has removed over 217,000 more pounds of nitrogen than its permit required. That is nearly 20 tons of nitrogen per year that is not

discharged into Manhasset Bay. “Reducing nitrogen levels is vital to the health of Manhasset Bay,” GNWPCD Commissioner Patty Katz said. “It is our aim to continue to find ways to minimize nitrogen discharge through advanced technology and performance proficiency.” Another initiative taken by the District has helped it eliminate septic tank use by using its extra capacity to connect homes and businesses close to the District’s borders. To date, it has connected the Americana Shopping Center and numerous privately-owned homes. It has also conducted a sewer study for the sewering of the Plandome Road Business District and surrounding homes. In addition, the District is in the process of preparing a sewer feasibility study for the unsewered portions of Great Neck Estates and Harbor Hills. —Submitted by the Great Neck Water Pollution Control District

for reading by donating your books to those in need.” The Book Fairies was founded by Amy Zaslansky, a busy local mom who wanted to share her love of

books, as well as her over-flowing home library, with less fortunate children. Upon embarking on this endeavor, Zaslansky discovered that it was difficult to get her used books to the children who would most benefit from them. As a result, she created The Book Fairies, a Long Island-based nonprofit organization that accepts donations of new and gently used books and connects them with libraries, schools and organizations throughout metropolitan New York that do not have the funds to foster the love of reading for their children. As part of the town’s Children’s and Young Adults’ Book Drive,

books will be accepted ranging from baby through young adult, as long as they are in good condition and come from a smoke-free environment. Baby and preschool books will be distributed across preschool programs, daycare centers, homeless shelters, etc. Elementary, middle school and high school books will be distributed directly to schools and programs that support students in impoverished areas such as soup kitchens, Little Free Libraries, hospitals and more.

Garden City’s Back To School Safety Series

I

t’s that time of year again. Summer vacation is almost over and schools are reopening. With that in mind the Garden City Police Department has put together a fourpart series of articles to address Backto-School Safety Issues. Part One will address “Safe Driving Practices,” Part Two “School Bus Safety,” Part Three “Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety” and Part Four “Stranger Danger.” When schools are opening in the morning and closing in the afternoon, the areas around schools are very busy and crowded. Parents and other adults can do much to improve traffic safety around our schools by driving cautiously, teaching their children safe practices and limiting vehicle trips. In some cases, parents and other adults may be the cause of safety concerns. Drivers should obey all traffic laws and apply the following safety practices.

through the rear curbside door. • Drivers should not double park or block traffic. Parking or waiting in red zones such as disabled parking areas and no-stopping zones is prohibited. • Do not block school buses or use areas designated for buses only. • Never stop or park in a crosswalk or within the posted crosswalk “No Parking” area. Students and other pedestrians rely on the crosswalk and need the visibility that the posted no-parking buffer provides to cross the street safely. • Do not violate the law by using the excuse “I’ll just be here for a minute,” when picking up or dropping off students. • Do not make U-turns within school zones and avoid turning around in neighboring driveways. It’s hard enough to see children and even harder when you’re backing up or making U-turns.

You’re free to drive even opening car doors. Children should slower than the posted school zone always get in and out of your vehicle speed limit and this should always

be considered when conditions warrant it such as: heavy rain, snow, fog, icy roads, darkness, or heavy traffic conditions. • Never pass a stopped school bus when its red flashing lights are on. Whether you are behind the bus or approaching from the opposite direction, you must come to a full stop and remain stopped until warning lights are off. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Association (NHTSA), from 2010-19, 1,199 people were killed nationally in school transportation related crashes. Motorists should keep in mind that young children usually see and hear differently than adults. Children only have two-thirds the peripheral vision adults have and they have difficulty determining the source of a sound. They are still learning to judge distance and speed. When

a car is coming toward them, they cannot accurately judge how fast it is traveling or how long it will take to cover the distance. Children focus on one thing at a time. If they are playing with friends or riding bikes it is unlikely they are aware of your car. Children are spontaneous and have trouble stopping an action once started. Children also tend to overestimate their abilities, thinking they can run across a street before the light changes or a car approaches. If parents and other motorists make it a habit to incorporate these safe practices into their routines, the risk of injury or death to anyone in the school zone will be greatly reduced. The Garden City Police Department encourages everyone to read Part Two, “School Bus Safety,” next week. —Submitted by the Village of Garden City

Climbing The Career Path To Television Success Hicksville High School alum nabs Emmy wins

hen Roman Feeser was a television-obsessed kid, news made its way into his viewing diet and one of his favorite people to watch was Jane Pauley on the Today Show. Feeser’s devotion to Pauley was such that he set the VCR to record so “...I could it catch it went I got home from school.” Fast forward decades later and the Hicksville High School Class of ‘92 alum is working as a producer for CBS This Morning with Jane Pauley. Work Zoom calls from the home he shares with his partner Steve in Nashville find him regularly discussing work with the veteran journalist. It’s quite a surreal moment for Feeser, especially after winning his second Daytime Emmy Award. “When I’m sitting in a room with her having a conversation, I have to literally pinch myself,” he said. “I’m still amazed that that little boy who sat home in his living room in Hicksville can pick up a phone and call her anytime. She is a wonderful person and such a professional.” The son of veteran Grumman Aerospace employees Joseph and Arleen, Feeser started down his career path growing up in Hicksville after his parents moved out to Long Island from Queens in 1975 when he was only one year old, along with sister Kerri. “At Hicksville High School I was heavily involved in the arts,” he recalled. “Chuck Arnold, Billy Joel’s music teacher became my music teacher. I was very involved in the theater arts with Judith Paseltiner— who taught me so much about myself. The arts are so important in transforming a student’s creativity. Without the performing arts at Hicksville I would have been lost.” Currently in his third year at CBS This Morning, Feeser got his foot in the door at the

at Was Here, the latest work by Massapequa Park author Dina Santorelli, has been released on Kindle Vella. Inspired by Santorelli’s grandfather, Pat Was Here is a romance, a departure for Santorelli who is mainly a suspense and thriller novelist. The novel tells the story of a man named Pat, who has Alzheimer’s, and his wife, Mary, who cares for him. The serialization is based on a short story Santorelli wrote in graduate school while working on her master’s degree in English/Creative Writing at Hofstra University. “The story had been wasting away on my computer for about a decade and a half,” Santorelli said. “When Amazon announced the creation of Kindle Vella, I immediately thought of that story. My grandparents died in 2008 and 2010, and I thought I could expand that original short story, titled “Pennies for a Thought,” for serialization. It has been a joy to spend time with them again. My grandparents will live forever in my heart. I hope now they will live in readers’ hearts too.” Santorelli was recently voted one of the best authors on Long Island. Her most recent thriller

The celebration, which included two events on Saturday, Aug. 21 and Tuesday, Aug. 24, were held for families to remain connected to loved ones after they have passed. Invited as a guest speaker at the celebration was Reverend Lamonte S. Granby, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Bronxville. Granby, who recently spoke at Pinelawn’s Spring

Candlelight Remembrance Vigil, shared his thoughts on carrying those we love in our hearts. “It’s very important for families to continue to feel connected with their loved ones, even after they pass,” Pinelawn Marketing Manager Kristyn Hovanec said. “Today, people tend to live very hectic lives, so we are happy to be able to host events so that families can take a pause to reconnect and honor those they’ve lost.” During the events, attended by more than 400 people, guests received complimentary floating lanterns which they personalized and decorated and then released within

Campers Had A Blast At Massapequa Summer Recreation From the classrooms to the gymnasiums to the playgrounds, spaces in and around Massapequa’s elementary schools are full of energy as the popular Summer Recreation Program has returned following a year hiatus. The program, open to students entering kindergarten through fifth grade, is held at five of the six elementary schools, with East Lake’s camp relocated to McKenna because of construction. Enrollment is on a week-by-week basis, so children can attend all five weeks of the program, or select their weeks to attend. Many participants are taking advantage of this flexibility so they can mix in time at Massapequa’s other summer programs including the fine arts and sports skills camps. Each six-hour day features a mix of indoor and outdoor activities including arts and crafts, games, playground time and sports, as well as a lunch break. Camp directors have also planned some special events including DJ parties, visits from an ice cream truck, a science show and All-American burger day. Dress-up days such as Halloween in July and Hawaiian day were also a big hit with campers. Since the program was last held two years ago, classrooms at all of the elementary schools have been air conditioned, providing campers and counselors with a more comfortable

environment. The high school-age counselors, who supervise each group, bring students to the different centers, coordinate the activities and, most importantly, make sure everyone is happy and safe. —Submitted by the Massapequa School District

Residents Express Concerns Over Proposed Retail Building BY ANTHONY MURRAY

T

amurray@antonmediagroup.com

he Lakeville Estates Civic Association held a meeting last week where residents voiced their concerns about the proposal of a new building that would be constructed within an existing shopping center’s parking lot in New Hyde Park. The proposed building would be located at the complex 653-697 Hillside Ave., or as it’s better known to local residents as the Stop & Shop shopping center. The building would be a free-standing one, 6,500 squarefeet and would be for retail purposes. The building would be on the corner of Stewart and Hillside avenues. The applicant, SFR Realty, said they have had discussions with the Town of North Hempstead and the civic association for close to a year discussing plans of what the building would look like. At previous meetings, some residents asked why the proposed building can’t be moved further east in the parking lot closer to Old Navy and Five Below. The applicant said they are prohibited by doing that because of leases with Old Navy and Five Below who have a no-build-area exhibit, which prohibits them from putting any building on the eastern side of the property. “Our lease documents with Stop & Shop also have a no-build kind of provision, which covers a good part of the shopping center except for the one spot where we’re going to place the building,” the applicant added. Other residents also asked why there is a need to construct a new building when there are at least three buildings in the shopping center that are vacant. The applicant said that every building inside the shopping center is fully leased with new stores being added soon once permits are approved. So what types of new retail stores would be occupying the proposed new building? The applicant said that a phone store has shown interest as well as a possible dental place. “We really haven’t tried marketing the space,” the applicant said. “We don’t have any concrete proposals or letters of intent. It’s too premature and tenants aren’t interested in focusing on a property unless the approvals have been met.”

(Contributed photo) One resident asked if the proposed building would have a cannabis-type business inside. “Absolutely not,” the applicant responded. “We have given, several times, letters to the civic association stating that we have no interest or intention to lease this to any type of marijuana dispensary or anything like that. We would be prohibited from doing it by lease provisions anyway from within the shopping center.” One resident asked where trucks making deliveries to the stores would park after another resident mentioned that it would be a tight squeeze in that area with Stop & Shop’s trucks also making drop-offs. “They would pull up in front of the stores and use sidewalk delivery as they do in other places,” the applicant said. “They’ll pull into the parking lot inside the parking center.” The resident responded, “This is the worst part of the parking lot to place a building. You couldn’t have picked a worse spot. If this is the only choice you have to make, you shouldn’t even make it. It’s going to be so congested there. That’s prime parking for Stop & Shop.” Another resident said that safety in that parking lot is a major concern for her. “The parking lot floods terribly; they’ve tried to remedy it, but they have not,” the resident claimed. “There are many empty buildings

right now. Rite Aid has been empty for a very long time. DressBarn is empty and so is Payless. The parking lot is already overly congested. We get people from Queens who come shopping here and people from the east of us. We have so many buildings in New Hyde Park that are not rented and are vacated. A phone store just closed on my corner last week and there’s a row of new stores on North 6th and Hillside that aren’t rented. Why do we need this?” The applicant said the former Payless store, which is 3,600-squarefeet, has a signed lease for eight months with Geico insurance. “Geico has been waiting for a building permit to be issued,” the applicant said. “Last week the permit was approved by the building department. It’s a 10-year lease. DressBarn, which is 6,300-square-feet, we have a signed lease for two-thirds of that store with an international apparel brand company that has over 125 stores.

They’ve been on file with the building department since March. The lease has been signed since March 2020.” The Rite-Aid store, however, is still under lease from Walgreens. Walgreens, who is still paying rent, closed the Rite-Aid store in the shopping center because there is a Walgreens just two blocks away towards the city line. “We were always 100 percent occupied until COVID,” the applicant explained. “We want the center to be a strong center that appeals to the demographic of the New Hyde Park market and we’re hopeful that they’ll be good tenants.” The Town of North Hempstead will hold a continuation public hearing on Sept. 30 for 653-697 Hillside Ave. for a site plan review.

Cannabis Task Force Hears From Experts BY CAROLINE RYAN

T

cryan@antonmediagroup.com

he Town of North Hempstead’s (TONH) recently appointed Cannabis Task Force held its first of three listening sessions on Aug. 24. “This task force is in charge of certain responsibilities,” Town of North Hempstead Clerk Wayne Wink said. “This is the first of three sessions that we are going to hold in order to provide information to solicit, elicit and to hear information from all of you. The purpose of the task force is to conduct these listening sessions and gather public input on the issue of whether or not the town should choose to opt out or opt in with the current state law, MRTA.” The Task Force, comprised of residents and experts in various fields such as business, health and public safety, will advise the town board of their recommendation at the end of the three sessions. Under New York State legislation, cities, towns and villages can render their own decisions regarding recreational marijuana sales in their areas. They have until Dec. 31, 2021 to render a decision, but if they decide not to opt out, that decision is permanent. During the Tuesday meeting, members of the Task Force listened to a number of experts who spoke about the effect the potential approval of the sale of recreational and on-site consumption of cannabis may have on the town. Elizabeth Kase was the first panelist to speak during the listening session. Kase is a partner at Abrams Fensterman, where she is Chair of the Criminal Law Department and Co-Chair of the Cannabis Law Practice Group. Kase notably touched upon the tax revenues the town might receive if they opted-in. “It is predicted that within approximately one to two years of those applications being granted, you will start to see those economies filling in,” Kase said. “Once those stores are open, from what we have seen from other states, cannabis industry did very well in COVID. That was deemed an essential business by most states and with that designation, the millions of dollars of revenue, even in Illinois when it had just started in January 2020 ahead of the pandemic, was an unbelievable beginning for the state’s tax dollars. It

was much more than expected.” One Manhasset resident addressed her concerns to the task force, stating the potential negative impacts allowing cannabis in the town might have on young teenagers. “What has brought us here tonight concerns me so deeply,” she said. “I am urging everyone here to strongly consider the ramifications if we don’t choose to opt out of allowing sale of recreational marijuana in our local community. Once we invite it in—there’s no turning back. If you need to get it medicinally go for it. If you’re an adult, go for it— get it somewhere else, but not in our town and not for a tax break.” The second panelist was Jennifer DeSena, executive director of the Manhasset Coalition Against Substance Abuse (CASA) and an attorney by trade. DeSena spoke about the importance of preventing marijuana related tragedies, especially for those who may be driving under the influence. “Our goal is prevention,” DeSena said. “We are successful when tragedy doesn’t happen. We don’t have the tools to deal with marijuana impaired drivers. We must do everything we can to educate our community about the risks of today’s potent marijuana for the users and for others on the roads. When you’re a member of a community, particularly a leader, you make decisions that protect the greater good—not just your own wishes.

When we consider opting out of retail stores and consumption sites we have to consider the greater good of all the residents.” DeSena further stated that the town should opt-out to “protect the vulnerable and to serve the greater good.” On the topic of safe driving, DeSena noted a recent study, which stated that “almost half of teenagers who regularly use pot admit they have gotten behind the wheel while stoned. Overall twice as many teens have reported driving under the influence of marijuana than admit to drinking and driving.” The last panelist was Jeffrey Schultz, a partner at Feuerstein Kulick. Schultz focuses on advising private equity funds, and advising cannabis industry operators on M&A and capital raising, banking laws, state-law cannabis compliance, corporate governance, intellectual property matters and strategic partnerships. During his presentation, Schultz stressed the importance of providing safe access to cannabis. He stated that the town could implement zoning regulations, which would prevent dispensaries from operating a certain distance from a school. “To the extent that there are concerns over safe access and children getting access, that is a huge concern of mine,” Schultz. “I think regulating the industry and having dispensaries in certain localities actually decreases the

likelihood that children over the age of 21 gain access to it. They shouldn’t have any access to it.” Schultz stated how important it is to regulate the market in order to prevent teenagers from gaining access to it. “Last time I checked, my kids can go into a liquor store with me and be mis-educated about everything on the shelves,” Schultz said. “That cannot happen in this market, not under the MRTA. You cannot even walk in. You can’t walk in with an expired license if you’re 50 years old. They will not let you in. The rules in New York are going to be very strict. Nobody wants anyone under the age of 21—the evidence around cannabis consumption for teenagers is difficult to refute. It creates problems and we should regulate it as such. But acting like it’s not going to be in our communities is only going to serve to harm them.” The next meeting will be held on Monday, Sept. 27 at 1 p.m. at Clinton G. Martin Park, 1601 Marcus Ave., New Hyde Park. The following meeting will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 19 at 6 p.m. at the “Yes We Can” Community Center, 141 Garden St., Westbury.

The organization hosted an exhibit to highlight the photography of the 35 summer arts camp members. They were handed a digital camera and asked to take photos to illustrate the principles they had learned via the week-long Simple Good curriculum. The Simple Good’s mission is “To connect the meaning of ‘good’ from around the world to empower youth to bring positivity into communities through art and discussion.”

“The Simple Good was coaching them about thinking about the meaning of the picture and how we’re related to the communities,” said Westbury Arts President Julie Lyon. Camp Director Patty Eljaiek noted that photography is among the electives at the camp. Before heading out into the playground with their cameras, she said, the campers “had art activities and discussions in order to understand what the theme was and how they could depict it. Their curriculum guided what they were doing.” After being virtual last year, the fourth-year camp was held in person and continued to be one of the most popular Westbury Arts activities, with

Old Westbury Decides Against Zoning Changes BY FRANK RIZZO

frizzo@antonmediagroup.com

The words “Village of Old Westbury” and “multi-family housing” shall never meet in a sentence— or in real life, according to residents. After a contentious public hearing in July, when village officials and residents discussed a land use and zoning study, the board of trustees released a statement on Aug. 13 which said it will not go ahead with the recommendations of the study. Most critics of the proposed zoning overlay areas focused on the numerous references to multi-family housing and higher density. The village is overwhelmingly residential, with minimum lot sizes of two and four acres. The study, issued by VHB, an engineering firm with a regional office

in Hauppauge, proposed three areas that fit the criteria the village sought for an overlay zone: large tracts that were adjacent to thoroughfares and close to the Nassau County sewer system. It identified three such parcels: The Phipps Estate (98 acres between Post Road and Hitchcock Lane), Wang subdivision (about 20 acres on Hillside Avenue and Bacon Road). and the Kadish property (about 53.6 acres between Jericho Turnpike and I.U. Willets Road) The Phipps Estate is being bought by village developer Stewart Senter, who was quoted as wanting to build 350 units of 55-and-over housing. Senior housing was mentioned by the study as part of the guiding principles established by the village. The other goals and objectives were to protect the community character,

At the July meeting, resident Jeff Smith said, “I believe the community is fine the way it is (applause)” and asked Mayor Edward Novick how the board could contemplate multi-family housing and higher density. Novick argued that planning and looking ahead is important if the village is to remain financially strong.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR MY AMENDMENT TO THE CITY OF GLEN COVE TAXI ORDINANCE I am very appreciative that my colleagues supported my amendment requiring City of Glen Cove taxi cab fares be clearly posted inside the cab. The amendment not only requires that the information be clearly posted on the back of the vehicle headrest, it also establishes fines for non-compliance and requires that the information, along with the city phone number, be noted on the sign. This will hopefully clear up some of the confusion regarding the established fare and help assure that correct information is communicated between riders and drivers.

It should be pointed out that while I was the one who proposed the amendment to the resolution and reviewed the language with the city attorney, many of the elements also reflected concerns shared by my colleagues during past meetings. Yes, I am proud of the amendment, but good governance is not about “I’m the only one” but rather, let’s work together for what is best for the community. I regret that my second amendment to the ordinance reducing the increase from four dollars to three dollars did not pass. I am not

unsympathetic to the challenges facing the taxi company and I absolutely agree that given the increase in costs, an increase in the taxi fare is warranted. However, I feel the better choice would have been to have a slightly more modest increase at this point and revisit the fare in a year. This has been a hard time for the taxi company but it has also been a hard time for our residents who are dependent on the service. These are hard decisions. As I mentioned in the meeting, while technically we are a city, in reality, we are a little town. While there was heated debate during the

public hearing between the owners of the cab company and riders who were not happy with the increase, as they left the public hearing they were talking to each other. No, not laughing and chatting, but talking to each other. It should be pointed out that it was the owners of the cab company who suggested the location of signage on the back of the headrests so it could be clearly viewed by riders. There are no villains in this equation, just hard decisions to be made. —Gaitley StevensonMathews, Glen Cove City Councilman

He argues that police officers are armed and trained to use their arms. Yeah, well I hope so. The simple fact is, police officers risk their lives daily while facing open hostility simply because they wear the uniform. Why should they be open to verbal and physical assault? I do not believe anything

in the bill allows for police officers to violate any person’s rights—all it does is protect the police officers’ right to work in a safe and dignified environment.

A few years back, I heard a report that someone ran around Central Park in the dead of night putting bras on statues. We live in New York, so not much shocks us. Bizarre incidents take place by the minute. But one bizarre incident I experienced did shock my socks off. Some guy attempted to steal my groceries from a crowded Nassau County parking lot at two o’clock in the afternoon. No lurking in the shadows for this macho man.

Backyard Garden Joys It’s the year of the cucumber. No, this is not an official holiday or something that one would see on a calendar. This is the official year that our cucumbers, after at least 20 years of living in Hicksville, have officially taken off. Last year, Hubby decided that he was finished with the forsythia bush that bordered our driveway. Scraping automobile paint on the branches had finally gotten on his last nerve, which prompted him to begin the arduous task of removing the bushes from the small strip of land that bordered our property and our neighbor’s. After several days and lots of Biofreeze later, we had a clear view of our neighbor’s backyard and a driveway free of protruding branches that never failed to poke one of us in the head or rip at our shirts when we retrieved Luna’s toys beneath the branches. Several weeks later, Carl’s Fence came to install the rest of the two-tone resin fence that borders our yard. Hubby and I decided that the spot where the forsythias once resided would be a perfect spot for a small garden. Every year, our garden had been planted in large oak barrels that were home to tomato, pepper, cucumber and eggplant starters. By the end of the season every year, we were rewarded with perhaps three or four misshapen cucumbers, about 10 tomatoes, two peppers and an eggplant. I kid you not. We had even gone as far as to replace all the dirt with Miracle Gro soil, but to no avail. Herbs grew brilliantly, but veggies? Not so

much. Hubby stated that vegetables needed to be placed in the ground, so we planted zucchini, cucumbers and Ichiban eggplants where the brilliant gold forsythia once grew. In every pot that had new soil and “black gold” compost material, we planted San Marzano tomatoes, another Ichiban, several Bell Pepper plants and one cucumber plant. Where the lilac bush once grew, we noted a dark green leafy plant, which was the beginning of what is now a tremendous potato plant. I had forgotten that I had planted an “eye” of a potato last fall in that spot. We crossed our fingers and hoped for the best. We hoped to have a garden that was much like my mom’s. Mom’s tomato and eggplant plants have yielded so much fruit over the years that she has resorted to giving much of her harvest to her neighbors and my aunt. This year was no different, as her Beefsteak tomatoes were literally the size of small pumpkins. It was our hope that we would have at least a fraction of her yield. Our zucchini plants

looked a bit wilted one day, which prompted Hubby to express his desire to remove them from the garden bed. That afternoon, I did a little searching and found five tremendous zucchinis that were hidden beneath the tangle of large green leaves. They were the size of small baseball bats. I haven’t grown zucchini that large since we lived with my father-in-law in his home in Plainview. So glad we did not pull them out. We had no choice but to give a lot of our harvest away. Our Ichiban were girthy and our San Marzano tomatoes were literally the size of softballs. At one point, we had twelve cucumbers on the vine, with many more in various stages of growth. Our neighbors and our daughter have profited from this, though I did share some with my mom as well. She did not

grow cucumbers this year, so she was grateful for what we left in her fridge while she was away. She also said that the Ichiban eggplant was much better than the Black Beauty variety she had grown, which she found to be bitter and not as tasty. The greatest producer this year has clearly been our cucumber plants, which we purchased from DiMaggio’s on South Oyster Bay Road. Thank you so much, guys. What a wonderful harvest it has been. Tomato and cucumber salads for days, and I am not complaining at all. The season is winding down now, and I have noticed the basil plants have begun to go to seed. It is time to begin the process of drying the tarragon, thyme, sage, basil and oregano for use over the winter. As my mom taught me, I will flash freeze some of

the fresh basil for pesto atop a thick and hearty potato soup. Some of the tomato plants that are in the ground still have green tomatoes on them, but not for long. To date, we have created two fresh tomato sauces for Sunday sauce, which my grandmother referred to as a “dirty sauce.” There will be a forthcoming column with the recipe. Gardening is not only a relaxing hobby, as watering the lawn and searching for yields are Zen-like in nature, but it is also gratifying. The joy of gifting and sharing with others is heartwarming and the ability to grow something from the earth and enjoy it in a meal is one of life’s greatest joys. I wish you all a happy harvest and a wonderful wind down to your gardening season. —Patty Servidio is an Anton Media Group columnist.

of the cognitive characteristics of the career criminal is entitlement. There you go. This narcissistic thief seemed to revel in an exaggerated sense of self-importance. Dressing in expensive clothes and driving around in a BMW wasn’t enough. He basked in glory on the parking lot stage, lamenting his latest bravado of ripping off groceries not surrounded by barbed wire. And because of this nut job,

my opinion on suburban burglars plummeted. I expected any respectable thief after getting nailed with the goods, would attempt an escape. Drop the bottles of Gatorade, cans of soup and guacamole dip, burn rubber and get out of the lot. No, this predator of shopping carts needed to get caught in broad daylight in order to show his superiority and spotlight his entitlement. He failed badly with that

allusion. I have more respect for the three-card-Monte scam artists in New York City.

The National September 11 Memorial & Museum will soon lead the nation, and the

Curran Calls On Legislature To Approve $375 Direct Payments

assau County Executive Laura Curran was joined by local homeowners to call on the Nassau County Legislature to cut their summer vacations short and return to work in order to pass the Household Assistance Program (HAP), which would send $375 in direct cash payments to up to 400,000 Nassau County households. The Republican Majority in the Nassau County Legislature has stalled on passing the important legislation and is not currently scheduled to return to Mineola for weeks. The County Legislature has been on break since Aug. 2. Curran held her press conference at the home of Cheri, a retired kindergarten teacher from North Bellmore who would benefit greatly from [the payment]. Joining the county executive was President of the Long Island Federation of

Labor John Durso and retired U.S. Navy Veteran Carter Ward of Hempstead. “It is well past time for the County Legislature to approve my plan to deliver direct payments to Nassau residents. Instead of waiting another few weeks and stalling the process even further, let’s take action now. The Household Assistance Plan will not only help those who continue to struggle, but also provide a meaningful boost to our local economy,” Curran said. Majority Leader of the United States Senate Sen. Chuck Schumer added, “I fought tooth-and-nail to secure billions in aid in the American Rescue Plan for New York and its localities— including over $385 million for Nassau County—and I’m glad that County Executive Curran has created a Household Assistance

And talking was encouraged, with socialization a major component of the program. The Elementary Summer Experience, for students who just completed grades K-5 at the Harbor and Manor schools, featured three hours of hands-on activities on weekday mornings from Aug. 9 to 20. Every day had a theme, such as animals, the beach, magic, space and superheroes. Students rotated through different centers – art, STEAM, physical education, social and emotional learning and, of course, snack time – with activities relating to the daily theme. On animal day, students received a visit from an animal rescue group, a service dog foundation and the Nassau County Police Department’s mounted unit. On STEAM Day, there were cup-stacking challenges and other projects that tested their problem-solving abilities. The last day of camp was superheroes day, with some

September 12th at 9am On April 8th, 2018 my father experienced some chest pain while at the gym. Within hours it was determined that he was having a heart attack. He was quickly taken to the catheterization laboratory where he received several stents in his arteries. I did not know much about heart disease before that day. Since then I have worked very hard with my family and community in order to raise funding for the American Heart Association. Starting in the fall of 2018 with the help of my family and friends I created the Dad’s Heart Team. At this date we have raised about $30,000 in donations. I have also written a book with our team’s name for children to better understand heart disease. We celebrate our achievements annually at the American Heart Association Long Island Walk at Jones Beach. This year, unlike last year we will be able to walk in person on September 12 at 9am.

acArthur is once again led by veteran coach Andrew Atkins, who took the Generals to the Nassau County championship in 2014 and the County finals in 2017. MacArthur won its conference title last season, which was abbreviated due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The only two losses for MacArthur (5-2-4) came against Garden City and Great Neck North, who were co-Nassau County champions. While the Generals lost a host of seniors, Atkins has plenty of talent returning to the varsity. Seniors Jason Tordy, Matt Cassidy and Joe Ianuzzi play the middle of the field while Nick Del Grosso anchors the defense. They will be complemented by some offensive young guns. They include juniors James Eden (striker) and Kieran Weber (midfield), as well as sophomores Joey Mahoney (midfield) and Cristian Perez-Franco (striker). The Generals backline features Tyler Mormando, Gianni Nino and Paul Lichter, while fellow juniors Tyler Behr and Jack Maurer are the returning goalkeepers. Seniors Ryan Jimenez and Mike Powers also bolster the defense. Over at Island Trees, ninth-year coach Ray Due is coming off an impressive 8-1-1 season. In last year’s playoffs, the Bulldogs lost a heartbreaker in penalty kicks to Jericho, the defending state champion. Due is hoping to build on last year’s success. Island Trees returns eight seniors, including four who will impact the season. Defender Kevin

Butler (All County) returns to lead the defense along with senior goalkeeper Jayson Portes. The Island Trees offense will be led by dynamic scoring forward Jonathan Uzzo and fellow senior Erick Benitez. The Bulldogs should hold their own in their Conference A-5, where the main competition comes from Lawrence, North Shore and Seaford. “With the combination of strong leadership and a group of team-oriented players, we can really come together nicely,” Due said. “If all goes well, we can go on a strong run during the second half of the season into the playoffs.” At Division, the Dragons are coming off a season that saw cancellations due to COVID-19. Division was 1-3-2 last season. But coach Brian Maloney has some strong senior leadership. Seniors Ethan Carbonell (goalkeeper), Brendan Connolly (striker), Justin Fernandez (midfield), Ethan Kinkel (midfield), Christian Ramirez (midfield) and Mark Sierra (defense) are expected to pace the Dragons. Junior center midfielders Alejandro Casas and Kyle Harrington as well as sophomores Will Darvid and Aidan Skillman will be key contributors for the Dragons. The top opposition in Conference A-3 will come from South Side, Roosevelt and Hewlett. “We are going to have a lot of young talent controlling the middle of the field,” Maloney said. “We are looking forward to the challenge of a competitive Conference A-3.” —James Rowan is a Levittown resident

POLICE REPORT Hicksville Man Arrested For Elder Scam Third Squad Detectives report the arrest of a Hicksville man for an “Elder Scam” incident that occurred on Friday, July 9, at noon in Romano George Westbury. (Photo courtesy of According to NCPD) detectives, an 87-year-old female victim received a letter through U.S. mail claiming she had won the Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes. The female victim contacted the phone number listed on the mailer and was instructed to withdraw cash from her bank on multiple dates, totaling in the amount of $86,000. It was explained to the victim that the money was to pay for fees and taxes related to the sweepstakes win. The victim was further instructed that individuals would come to her home to pick up the cash and she complied with these demands. The victim did not receive a prize and called police to file a report when she realized she was the victim of an elder scam.

On Wednesday, Aug. 25, the victim was contacted once again by an unknown subject and instructed to withdraw an additional $5,000. She was informed that an individual would come to her residence to pick up the money. The victim then called police and detectives coordinated an awaited arrival of the potential subject. At 6 p.m., 28-yearold Romano George of Hicksville arrived at the victim’s home and officers who converged on the scene placed George under arrest without incident. A subsequent investigation revealed George as one of the individuals who had been to the victim’s home on two prior occasions to collect cash from her. George is charged with third-degree grand larceny. He was arraigned in First District Court on Aug. 26.

Due to the collision, one of the vehicles was pushed into the intersection and collided with the rear passenger side of a FedEx truck. Sojo then exited his vehicle and entered the FedEx truck, attempting to flee the scene by using physical force and verbal threats towards the driver. Responding officers attempted to place Sojo under arrest and render medical aid for his injuries sustained during the accident. Sojo refused to comply with the officers. Police were then forced to utilize an ECD (taser) to subdue him. He was taken into custody and transported to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries. Upon further investigation, a loaded Taurus G2C handgun was recovered from defendant Sojo’s vehicle. The two female operators of the vehicles struck by the defendant, 80 years old and 49 years old, were both transported to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

that occurred on Aug. 30 at 4 a.m. in Hicksville. According to detectives, the Second Squad was assisting a United States Postal Inspectors investigation regarding larcenies of mail from their Hicksville location. During their investigation, two male suspects arrived at the post office located at 185 West John St. in a BMW. One subject entered the building and used a stolen United States Postal Service-issued master key to remove the contents of the mailboxes. Detectives and Postal Inspectors attempted to place the subject in custody. The subject began violently resisting and used a sharp object to cut a postal inspector on his face and body. After a brief struggle, 26-year-old defendant Romy Fabr of Queens was taken into custody. Detectives and Postal Inspectors then approached the BMW and after complying with verbal commands, 22-year-old defendant Jahki Hawkins of the Bronx exited and was taken into custody without further incident. The postal inspector was transported to an area hospital for treatment of lacerations to his eye, face, leg and arm. Fabre has been charged with second-degree assault, third-and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest, second-degree criminal tampering, fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and petit larceny. Hawkins has been charged with third-degree unlawful possession of personal ID, fourth-degree criminal facilitation and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. Both were arraigned on Aug. 31 at Hempstead’s First District Court.

ast week, the world lost a Hollywood legend when actor Ed Asner passed away at the age of 91. Back in 2016, Long Island Weekly—Anton Media Group’s arts and entertainment publication—had the honor of speaking with Asner when he received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Long Island International Film Expo in Bellmore. You can read our exclusive interview with Asner below.

T he Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant, Up and Elf. If you haven’t already guessed what all of these television shows and films have in common, it’s one name: Ed Asner. The American film, television and voice actor is being honored with a lifetime achievement award at the Long Island International Film Expo, and if you think that means the end of a long and successful career then guess again. He’s not done yet. “I’m not through. I’ve got a ways to go but it’s nice, especially since the folks of Long Island are such entertaining types,” said Asner on his nomination of the prestigious award. One of Hollywood’s originals, Asner got his big break when he landed the role of Lou Grant, the blunt but lovable newsman on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, which aired for seven years before Asner’s character got his own spinoff series, Lou Grant, which lasted five years. “I loved them all,” said the Emmy award-winning Asner, who didn’t play favorites to episodes on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. “Being the wonderful comedian that I am, I identified totally with whatever was created for Lou Grant and it became a hit. It was a very comfortable place to be.” continued from page 49 known to the plaintiff, et al, Defts. Index #609751/2017.

I almost feel like Canada is a good luck charm for me,” said Asner. “I did A Case of Libel, The Family Man and we did part of Elf in Canada. It all resonates well with me.” Asner is also a known activist and is passionate about wildlife, gun control and autism. His son is the project director for Autism Speaks, and Asner appears at any event related to the disorder. “It can’t be talked about enough because it’s pandemic, and it needs as much publicity as it can get so people are reassured,” said Asner. “There’s much to be done and to me, there’s so much space to be carved out so people can have decent productive lives.” As for his upcoming projects, Asner is a cast member of Michael: Tuesdays and Thursdays. “It’s filmed in a Canadian city that has a great deal of charm,” he said. “I’m also working on producing with my partner Maggie Grant, and I have hopes that one of them will finally take off.” —Interview was conducted by former editor Jennifer Fauci

Alfred W. Dort, Sr. Alfred (Al) Dort Sr., 95, died on August 23, 2021 at Evergreen Hospital in Kirkland, W.A. Private services were held. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Al was born in Brooklyn, NY and served in the US Navy during WWII. He began his career in television shortly thereafter working for the American Broadcasting Company in NYC until his retirement. He started as a Cameraman and diligently worked his way up to Technical Director. Over the course of his 40+ year career at ABC he worked on many well know productions such as Good Morning America, Good Morning NY, Live with Regis and Kathy Lee, ABC Wide World of Sports and 5 Olympic Games; the 1976 Winters Games in Innsbruck, Austria being his favorite. His children enjoyed roaming around the television studio halls in search of celebrities and autographs. Al was a resident of Manhasset, NY for 46 years before moving to Redmond, WA in 2015 with his wife, Helen. During his retirement Al enjoyed traveling and was very actively involved in his parish at Saint Mary’s in Manhasset, NY where he and his wife served as eucharistic ministers for many years. Throughout Al’s life he was a very private man but looked forward to holiday gatherings and watching and hearing about his grandchildren. He loved the beach, gardening, sailing and was an avid skier. He had many stories about treacherous drives up to Vermont in his Corvette in the dead of winter or packing the family station wagon full of kids to go to Jones Beach. He also enjoyed spending family vacations in the Hamptons and Montauk. Some of his best times were at the beach or on the ski slopes. They were passions that were passed down to his children and grandchildren who continue to enjoy them today. Al was predeceased by his parents, Alfred and Mae McGowan Dort; his sister Dolores Connolly and brother Donald Dort. Al is survived by his wife of 53 years, Helen (Kaminski) Dort; his son Alfred Dort Jr. (Patsy) of Ridgewood, NJ; his daughter Kathleen (Dort) Heyes (Tim) of Woodinville, WA- and grandchildren: Anna, Katherine, Joshua and Sarah. 226630 M

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are alert and open to all of your surroundings, not just the parts being pointed out by the powers that be. You are not easily swayed by shiny, pretty lures set by those with an agenda. You follow a logic based in unique experience and truth. You’ll recognize potentials and bank on opportunities others miss. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You say “yes” and it’s a glorious beginning for you and many others, as this endeavor will cause a ripple of effects. Each person you work with will touch the lives of a dozen more. As for the spirit of inclusion you champion, it is not only the right way to be; it will make you richer and happier. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your uniqueness is unstoppable.

esiding at a stylistic crossroads that’s found them influencing legions of bands in the worlds of pop, hard rock, new wave, heavy metal and punk, Cheap Trick has kept the flame burning bright for American rock and roll for nearly five decades. This legacy eventually found the foursome of Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander, Tom Petersson and Bun E. Carlos getting rightfully and finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016. Since then, the three members minus Carlos (Nielsen’s son has been playing drums in Carlos’ stead) have soldiered on, most recently releasing In Another World, the band’s 20th studio effort back in April. Having weathered the pandemic, the Rockford, IL quartet have fallen back into the role of inveterate touring act that will see them hooking up on the Rod Stewart tour sometime late this year into 2022. As for the band’s impressive longevity, the ever-modest Nielsen credits his band’s staying power to keeping a basic approach. “I say this as kind of a joke—we’ve never progressed. We didn’t try to be something we weren’t,” he said. “We started off pretty good but to never progress means we didn’t want to be a jazz group or a metal act. We’re just trying to be what we did. To this day, we’ve never had fire pots or explosions. We’re Cheap Trick. The playing and our music set us apart. We

didn’t have any dance steps worked out.” With the new album featuring contributions from noted songwriter Linda Perry and Jimmy Hall of Wet Willie fame, the current record falls in neatly with other notable parts of the band’s canon you should check out below.

Rock & Roll TV Theme Songs One of the many ways Cheap Trick has managed to stay firmly entrenched in the pop culture zeitgeist was by recording a cover of Big Star’s “In The Street” for the FOX sitcom That ‘70s Show, which ran from 1998 to 2006 (although Todd Griffin sang it in the opening credits of the first season). The following are some of the more popular rock-band TV theme songs that were popular around the same time.
