Glorious Summer Fun


ow that the winter season has past, we anxiously await the commencement of another glorious summer in our “Crown Jewel”... Long Beach. Michael J. Kerr

Locals and out-of-towners alike will flock to our beautiful seashore, and frequent our numerous eating establishments offering a wide variety of cuisines to appease even the most discerning palate. Just imagine beautiful blue skies with billowy clouds and softly crashing waves hitting the shore. What a wonderful canvas for lazy and carefree days of swimming, boating, or just plain relaxation with a good book. Our boardwalk will once again be alive with joggers, couples strolling hand in hand, bicyclers and children. Let’s take this opportunity to give thanks and praise to our brave and dedicated police officers, our auxiliary police officers, our career and volunteer firefighters and lifeguard crew, who work so hard to keep Long Beach residents and visitors safe from harm. We applaud their dedication and tip our hats to them all. Bravo to a job well done! Our 2011 Dinner Dance was a huge success and attracted more than 800 attendees to a gala honoring a very special group of individuals, including: Alan Rosenberg as Man of the Year; David Pinto as Merchant of the Year; and Dr. Robert Canter as Professional of the Year. Additionally, City Court Judge Frank D. DiKranis was the recipient of the Edmund A. Buscemi Public Service Award. The chamber also hosted its Summer and Winter Blast networking parties, both of which were enormously successful. Even though we are going through a recession, our busi-

This year, we were thrilled to continue our Restaurant Week celebrations to support our local restaurants, and more information about the chamber can be found at our website, All of us at the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce wish you a wonderful summer.

ong Beach — it just keeps getting better. The city has never looked sharper or more prosperous. Everywhere you look, new restaurants and shops have added excitement and vibrancy to the community. There is one thing, however, that remains unchanged: our beautiful Beach Park and boardwalk. Memorial Day is here, marking the official start of the beach season and the unofficial start of summer. The world seems to move a bit slower during the long, lazy days of summer, when those of us with sand in our shoes return to our beloved ocean and beach. Long Beach has much to offer in every season, but summer is its time to shine. A look through this year’s Guide reveals just how jam-packed with outdoor activities this summer will be. As always, we have tried to make the Guide the most comprehensive source of information about Civitas Ad Mar, the City by the Sea, plus the adjoining communities of East Atlantic Beach, Lido Beach and Point Lookout. The Long Beach Guide is a special publication of the Long Beach Herald, the hometown newspaper of the barrier isle. The Guide is published in cooperation with the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce, and we are honored to mark another year as the official publication of the chamber. We hope you find this issue of the Long Beach Guide useful and informative, and that you enjoy reading the Long Beach Herald 52 weeks a year. Have a great summer, and we’ll see you on the beach!

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE BIOS MICHAEL J. KERR Michael J. Kerr was born in Brooklyn and came to Long Beach at the age of one, thus beginning the fourth generation in Long Beach. He attended Long Beach schools and graduated from Long Beach High School in 1964. In 1969, Kerr founded Fire Command Co. Inc., a firm he owns that provides a wide range of fire protection services and equipment, serving Nassau, Suffolk, and the five boroughs. He holds a certificate of Fire Technology from SUNY Farmingdale, attended Brooklyn Polytechnic University and holds a certificate from Hofstra University in occupational safety and health. Kerr is currently serving his seventh year as president of the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce. He served as executive vice president of the Chamber four years prior to that. He also is currently commencing his fourth six-year stint as Presidential Officer of the Exempt Fireman’s Association. Kerr served as the city's fire commissioner from December 1998 to April of 2006, donating his salary for the purchase of Fire Department equipment. Kerr has been a member of the Long Beach Volunteer Fire Department for the past 47 years, serving first as treasurer, then Lieutenant Captain, Assistant Chief and rising to Chief, a position he held from 1973 to 1975, and held the distinction of being the department's youngest fire chief when elected. He is a member of the Long Beach Lions Club, Long Beach Historical Society, the Nassau County Chiefs, the International Association of Fire Chiefs, Fireman’s Association of the State of New York, Nassau County Fireman’s Association, South Shore Fireman’s Association and on the Board of Trustees of the Long Beach Medical Center, to name a few. A devoted family man, Kerr has been married to his wife, Janice, for more than 20 years. They have three children: Jennifer, Andrew and Joshua.

LAWRENCE "LARRY" ELOVICH Lawrence E. Elovich, known by all as "Larry," considers himself a native of Long Beach even though he was born and raised in Brooklyn. He did, however, summer in Long Beach with his family from 1950 to 1960. Those summers were spent working for the City of Long Beach in various capacities, starting in the early 50s with beach combing then to filling pot holes with the Highway Department, and culminating with the position of Special Patrolman with the Long Beach Police Department. During law school, Elovich worked as a physical education teacher in Harran High School in New York City’s afterschool program. He also

worked as a high school basketball referee. Elovich graduated from Brooklyn's Lafayette High School in 1953 and from Long Island University in 1957. He later graduated Brooklyn Law School in 1961, and almost immediately began practicing law in Long Beach. While he is respected in the legal profession as a trial lawyer, specializing in personal injury, he is equally respected for his political acumen. Elovich served as Long Beach Democratic Chairman from 1967 to 1973, and has been active in the political field ever since. He continues to be an advisor to political figures on the local, state and national level. The question is often asked, "did politics make Larry a successful lawyer or did being a lawyer make him a politician?" His interest in politics was launched at approximately the same time as his law practice, so it's hard to tell which came first, but both disciplines continue to thrive. Over the years, Elovich has served in the city in many capacities. He has been a volunteer fireman and was president of the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce from 1981 to 2006. He is presently chairman of the chamber's board, and has served as a trustee, vice president and secretary to Long Beach Medical Center since 1967. Additionally, he has been active in various charitable and civic organizations within the city and has served as president of Long Beach Lion's Club as well as Exalted Ruler of the Long Beach Elks. Elovich has also served as a trustee at Nassau University Medical Center since 2001, and is also a trustee of the Long Island Power Authority. Since 1975, Elovich has been a director of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association and served as LAWPAC Trustee and as Vice Chairman from 1991 to 2003. He is also a former chairman of the Nassau County Bar Association legislative committee, and has served as a member of the New York Governor's Judicial Screening Committee. Elovich continues to practice law and is senior partner of Elovich & Adell in Long Beach, specializing in personal injury and medical malpractice law. In his spare time, Elovich enjoys keeping physically fit, playing golf, tennis, jogging, running races and working out daily at a local gym. Elovich has been married to Helen Mirel since 1963 and they have three daughters: Lisa, Lauree and Lynn, as well as nine grandchildren. There is no question that family is the best part of this busy man's life!

WARREN VEGH Executive Director Warren Vegh has been a member of the Chamber of Commerce for more than 19 years, and has served on the Board of Directors for the past 11 years. Vegh oversees the day-to-day operations of the chamber, including chairing committees and organizing various meetings and events. Vegh is a lifelong resident of Long Beach. His company, W & L Pool Servicing, Inc., has served commercial facilities, beach clubs, country clubs, camps, condominiums and homeowners’ associations across Long Island and the Rockaways for more than 29 years. His years of business experience bring valuable insight to the management of the chamber. Vegh is also a teacher and has taught in the Long Beach School District for 29 years. He is an elected trustee of the Long Beach Public Library, currently serving as president, as he completes his second full term. During his tenure as a library trustee, Vegh has worked together with fellow trustees and community members to bring back a new library to the West End. Last year, in the spirit of "Go Green," he worked on a solar-paneling project installed on the roof of the Long Beach Library, an initiative that will save energy and taxpayer dollars in the years to come. He has also worked with trustees to keep the budget in check, while continuing to enhance all areas of the library for our citizens. This past year, Vegh began working as a liaison to the Long Beach School Advisory Board, helping to bring merchants and students toContinued on page 22

During his tenure, Tannenbaum has served as chairman of the Summer Blast and has been instrumental in the planning of the Winter Blast each season. He also has developed numerous advertising campaigns for the chamber’s membership. The president of the chamber has relied on Tannenbaum to represent the chamber membership at various City Council and community meetings and state initiatives.

Back to an earlier time


ong Beach — what a place! A privileged few know why and the population continues to grow.

Once a playground for the wealthy, now a sandbox for all. The Long Beach Historical and Preservation Society makes it a goal to attract an interested audience and tell our island’s tale. The best place to hear it is in our Long Beach Museum, complete with archives and docents who will tell all. Geologists love the term "barrier island," but local historians lean more toward "barricade’" island, for the earlier segregation within the city confines, where plenty of unorthodox behavior went on. Separated from the mainland and accessible primarily by flat-bottom boats, and later by a swaying, primitive wooden bridge, everyone touched by Long Beach’s natural beauty, white sand and friendly sea could be counted on to come back for more. From the seasonal migrations of returning Algonquin families in the 18th century to its Gatsby-esque, Roarin’ residents of the 1920s annual return to their ‘West End,’ Long Beach was a city of play, a safe haven. Because of World War I, Sen. William Reynolds’s Long Beach ‘Estates’ concept met financial failure, leaving large summer homes vacant. The opportunity to buy large homes for large families, not just summers but year-round abodes, meant the barricaded island would become a safe, healthy home for children and families. With Ellis Island’s new Americans at our door and the Great War behind us, these families chose to live on our ‘Barri-

Broadway. cade Island.’ Their children are Americans, true, first-generation Americans, and now they have a safe, healthy community in which to begin their new lives. From Village Hall to City Hall, they continued to build homes, schools, libraries, churches, synagogues and movie theaters — there was a time when five theaters operated in town at the same time, harmoniously. Even the crash of the stock market, the year 1929 saw the opening of the Granada Towers and the Lido Hotel. The quality of life here was uncompromised, protected on our Barricade Island.

HISTORY IN THE MAKING 1643 - Sachem Tackapausha barters with Hempstead settlers to share the long white sandy beach. 1797 - Our island is named on Stewart’s map. 1837 - Wreck of the barque Mexico. 1849 - Building of a House of Refuge, a United States LifeSaving Station. 1861 - The Baymen’s secession from New York State (‘But not the Union’). 1869 - Davenport (Deb) Wright builds Long Beach’s first home. 1880 - The construction of the largest seaside resort in the world, the Long Beach Hotel. 1906 - The entrance on our shores of visionary master-builder, Senator William H. Reynolds. 1907 - Senator Reynolds builds the first concrete boardwalk in Long Beach; the Atlantic Gulf & Pacific Company starts to dredge the Channel bearing his name. 1908 - Construction of ‘The Estates of Long Beach’ signals the beginning of Long Beach as a ‘Planned Community.’ 1912 - The resort community of Long Beach becomes an

incorporated village. 1914 - Long Beach dedicates its first school 1915 - Lido Golf Course is designed 1919 - We have Walks and a West End bungalow community 1922 - Long Beach becomes a self-governing city; new milliondollar bridge built over Reynolds Channel; Long Beach-on-theOcean Trolley begins service 1927 - Long Beach Hospital dedicated 1929 - Stock market crashes and the modern urban Long Beach begins.

s we approach the summer months, all of us are eager to enjoy our beautiful beach, boardwalk and ocean in Long Beach.

Even while dealing with the difficult financial situation we inherited, we have been working around the clock to make repairs and improve the overall safety of the boardwalk. To that end, we recently launched a new initiative that has crews

working to fix the boardwalk seven days a week, without any additional overtime costs. Along with upgrading various support structures, the Department of Public Works was recently able to replace all 98 boardwalk lights with more cost-effective and energy-efficient Jack Schnirman fixtures. The lighting project was largely paid for through a community development grant. Additional reconstruction projects will also be taking place throughout the city as we strive to make Long Beach an even greater place to live, work and play. I’m thrilled to be spending my summer in the “City by the Sea,” and I look forward to seeing you around town or on the boardwalk, during a morning run or bike ride. Don’t hesitate to say hi and share your hopes, suggestions and ideas. Together, we will continue to improve Long Beach for all our families to enjoy. JACK SCHNIRMAN City Manager

P.S. I hope you’ll come out and join me to kick off the summer at the City Manager’s 10-mile run on May 27.

ong Beach has always been a great destination spot in the summer months. Our beautiful beaches are an attraction for all. As the season approaches, we look forward to a great series of community events. Organized athletics have always been a

priority through our recreation department. Volleyball, surďŹ ng, beach tennis, various races both on land and in the ocean are all features that the city is proud to host. The city will again present a arts and crafts festivals on the boardwalk, a juried ďŹ ne arts show Fran Adelson in Kennedy Plaza, as well as Arts in the Plaza and our ever-popular beach concert series offering a wide variety of music. The Long Beach Public Library also presents blues and jazz festivals throughout the year. Long Beach is a wonderful community and we invite you to come on out and celebrate the season with your family, friends and neighbors. All the best for a safe and wonderful summer.

s the weather gets warmer, we realize that summer is not too far away. For me, summer begins with the Memorial Day weekend and of course, the Memorial Day Parade.

It is wonderful that so many residents come out to cheer on the marchers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially our veterans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for whom this holiday is celebrated. These brave men and women who have served in our military did so to protect our liberty, and have allowed us the freedom to live in and build our communities. We also pay homage to those that lost their lives defending our country. Ever since I moved here in 1980, I have always known that I made the right choice in making Long Beach my home. My friends and family who visit here marvel at the strong sense of community. Every year, more and more people plunge into the Atlantic Ocean on Super Bowl Sunday to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. We end the summer season with hundreds of volleyball teams that compete to raise money for another worthwhile cause, the Michelle Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill Foundation. During the summer, the city hosts the Waterfront Warriors. During this time, residents open their homes to host veterans, many who are amputees and recovering from injuries sustained during the war. They and their families are treated to the generosity, warmth and hospitality that is typical of our residents and business owners. These are just a few of the many events that are held throughout the year. As your Legislator, I am proud to have secured funding that

led to the renovations of the parking mall between Long Beach Road and Monroe Blvd. I am proud of my involvement in bringing the Farmers Market to Kennedy Plaza and this year, our local artists will also be at the plaza on Saturdays. I urge all of you to check out the fresh fruits and Denise Ford vegetables as well as the art being shown. I love the artwork that I purchased and have hanging in my ofďŹ ce as well as my home. We also need to remain a safe community. Just as the summer is a time for fun and vacation, it is also a season for hurricanes. I urge you to attend the hurricane preparedness meeting that I sponsor with representatives from our OfďŹ ce of Emergency Management. If you cannot attend, make sure to read the emergency preparedness information that is mailed to your homes and follow the advice given. Also, if you can, please watch out for your neighbors as well! Another important reminder is to practice safety in the sun. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to wear your sunscreen and always swim near a lifeguard. Everyone should keep hydrated, especially when it is very hot and humid. As you watch out for your family, remember that your pets also need protection as well â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they need plenty of water and should never be left in a parked car for long periods of time. My family and I wish each and every one of you a healthy and happy summer! DENISE FORD 4th District Legislator

fter this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winter, we are all looking forward to a wonderful summer in Long Beach.

As a lifelong resident, I feel blessed to live in this beautiful community and enjoy its fantastic quality of life. Any time of year, Long Beach is a special place to live, but nothing beats our summers. We have it all: the spectacular beaches, the boardwalk, the festivals and, of course, the people. I have always believed that what really makes Long Beach outstanding is our people. Our residents have a tremendously generous spirit, bringing great energy and enthusiasm to events like the Michelle Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill Volleyball Tournament, which raises money for children with cancer; the Melanoma Walk to raise awareness about skin cancer; and the annual Long Beach Polar Bear Swim on Superbowl Sunday, which has raised millions of dollars for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Long Beach also brings the joy of surďŹ ng to children with autism and other developmental disabilities. As a lifeguard for more than ďŹ ve decades, I know about all the magic the beach offers. But whether you are swimming, surďŹ ng, boating, walking on the boardwalk or just relaxing on the sand, please make sure to wear sunscreen!

Sunscreens lose effectiveness over time. If you suspect that your sunscreen is more than a year old, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use it! I continue to introduce legislation requiring sunscreen manufacturers to print expiration dates on their products. Until then, when in doubt, Harvey Weisenberg throw it out! It is my extraordinary privilege to get to know so many of you and to work on your behalf. I continue to focus on bringing resources to the institutions at the heart of our community: our schools, hospitals, libraries, community and recreation centers; and of course programs that serve children, the elderly and those with disabilities. I am committed to protecting our beautiful natural resources and ensuring that those who protect us â&#x20AC;&#x201D; our dedicated ďŹ reďŹ ghters, law enforcement ofďŹ cers and emergency medical personnel â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have the resources they need. My lovely wife, Ellen, and I raised our ďŹ ve children in Long Beach, and our six grandchildren also grew up here. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true: thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no place like home! Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to a wonderful Long Beach summer, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see you at the Memorial Day Parade! HARVEY WEISENBERG Assemblyman

he Long Beach Fire Department serves and protects the City of Long Beach, as well as the East Atlantic Beach and Atlantic Beach Fire Districts.

The Fire Department responds with approximately 150 volunteer firefighters and 32 career firefighters. Our communications office is staffed 24/7 by 20 part-time dispatchers. Richard Corbett is currently the Chief of Department, and has 26-years of dedicated service. Alongside him are 1st Assistant Chief Antonio Cuevas, Jr. and 2nd Assistant Chief Robert Tuccillo. Together, they work to ensure that the City receives the best emergency service coverage possible. Our firefighters are extensively trained in the latest firefighting tactics. Many have also received special training in vehicle extrication, hazardous materials response, rope rescue and other technical rescue techniques. Our three ambulances are staffed with emergency medical technicians, many of whom are trained to provide advanced life support procedures. As one of the busiest departments on Long Island, last year the department responded to 4,745 calls overall. These included reports of fire, EMS calls, auto accidents, water rescues and other types of emergency calls in addition to outside requests for assistance from our surrounding jurisdictions. We work hand-in-hand with our dedicated Police Department and other city services during times of inclement weather, such as hurricanes and blizzards as well as during blackouts or other major widespread emergencies. The Fire Department operates out of three fire stations: Headquarters is located at the rear of City Hall; Station One is at the corner of Maple Blvd. and E. Park Ave. and Station Two is located at the corner of Indiana and West Park avenues. With the support of our residents and the City Council, we are equipped with some of the finest equipment available. The department responds with five fire engines, a 100-foot ladder tower, a 95-foot tower ladder, a heavy rescue truck, three advanced life support ambulances, a floodlight truck, and a field communications vehicle. Also, several utility vehicles respond with a jet ski and other water rescue equipment to reports of emergencies in our surrounding bodies of water. These vehicles are four-wheel drive capable and also assist during times of inclement weather. Recently, a fire training facility was built in the rear parking lot of City Hall. This allows our firefighters to practice firefighting and rescue techniques from the safety of a controlled environment. Constant upgrades are being built into the facility al-

Safe summer fun Paul Gillespie, the Long Beach chief of lifeguards, urges everyone who takes advantage of the Long Beach oceanfront this summer to obey the rules of the beach and listen to the lifeguards. Chief Gillespie has issued the following guidelines for a safe summer in our beautiful corner of the Atlantic.

BASIC RULES OF THE BEACH Learn to swim and never swim alone. ■ Only swim when lifeguards are on duty. ■ Lifeguards are on duty, weather permitting, from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. weekends only from May 26-June 17, and daily from June 23-Sept. 3. Beach passes are required when lifeguards are on duty. ■ Always go to the beach with an adult - and swim in front of the lifeguard between the green flags designated as the swimming area. ■ If you are in trouble, call out for help and wave your arms above your head. Do not panic. ■ Do not hesitate to call a lifeguard for help in any medical situation on the sand or in the water. ■ Stay off the rock jetties and never swim near them. ■ Check water conditions with lifeguards for undercurrents or sandbars. Both can be dangerous. ■ Report dangerous situations to the lifeguard. ■ Check the depth of underwater surface by jumping or walking, not diving head first! ■ Don’t attempt to make any rescue yourself. Get a lifeguard; they are trained to do the job. Do not interfere with lifeguards making a rescue. ■ When you hear the whistle, look at the lifeguard chair. They may want your attention. ■ Beaches close at 6 p.m. Swimming is prohibited when lifeguards are not on duty! ■ Surfing is permitted on specific beaches. Visit longbeachny. org/beach for surfing, concert, and event schedules. People are not permitted on the beach between the hours of 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. ■


No alcoholic beverages on the beach or boardwalk.

No bonfires or barbecues on the beach or on the boardwalk. Swimming is prohibited without a lifeguard on duty. ■ No animals are not permitted on the beach or boardwalk. ■ No glass on the beach. ■ All body boards must have a leash cord attached. ■ Leash cord must be used by the rider. ■ All children must be watched by a parent or guardian. ■ Flotation devices such as inflatable tubes and water wings are strictly prohibited. ■ Body board use: It is at the discretion of the beach patrol to restrict body boards (distance from shore, number permitted and rough water or other conditions). ■ Please listen to lifeguards instructions. ■ The use of body boards and surf boards in the same bathing area is prohibited. ■ ■

These safety regulations have been established to allow for the enjoyment of our patrons. They in no way imply that the use of body boards or surf boards are safe and will not result in injury.

OTHER INFORMATION, RULES, AND REGULATIONS OF BEACH PARK: Entrances are located between Nevada Ave. and Pacific Blvd. ■ The beach is 3.3 miles long with 2.2-mile boardwalk. ■ Beach passes are required 9 a.m.-6 p.m. weekends only from May 26-June 17, and daily from June 23-Sept. 3. ■ Parking is free, please obey the parking rules. ■ For your own safety rollerblading or roller-skating is not permitted on the boardwalk. ■ Please swim in front of a lifeguard stand and only when lifeguards are on duty. Failure to follow this directive may result in serious injury, including death by drowning!! ■ A beach pass is needed to enter or stay on the beach between the hours of 9 a.m.-6 p.m. ■

he Long Beach Police Department has recently reorganized to provide more efficient services to residents, while reducing costs to the taxpayer. The reorganization has added an additional seven police officers and two police sergeants to the patrol force. The additional officers on patrol give us greater flexibility on a daily basis to provide vital services to our residents. We operate under a “community policing” dictate. This cooperation with the public is the most current strategy in policing. We also subscribe to the concept of “if you see something, say something.” Never hesitate to call 911, because it’s always better to be safe than sorry. The Police Department’s mission is to provide the safest environment for our residents, businesses and visitors. Our new mantra is “We are here to help.” The LBPD has one of the best response times of any police department. This quick call to action ensures that situations do not get out of control, offenders are arrested at the scene and order is restored. We have been able to maintain a low crime rate because of the proficiency of our patrol force. The department also maintains a highly skilled Detective Division, consisting of eight detectives, one detective sergeant and one detective lieutenant. These officers are responsible for all investigations. They all have extensive training and expertise in many areas of the criminal investigation field, from narcotics to homicide and everything in between. They are highly regarded by their counterparts in both Nassau and Suffolk

counties, as well as the New York City Police Department. There are many services provided by our department: we currently have two certified school resource officers that work with our schools to foster a positive relationship with students, Michael Tangney while educating them about the law. We also participate in career days and a “teen night out” in the high school. Our nine specially trained motorcycle officers conduct traffic enforcement and perform ceremonial duties at parades and special events. A 40-member Auxiliary Police Force, commanded by Auxiliary Police Commissioner Joshua Sunquist and Capt. Edward Oliva, assists the LBPD. Each member attends a training course every Wednesday, for 26 weeks. These officers routinely patrol our city six-nights a week during the off-season, and every night during the summer as extra eyes and ears of the LBPD. They also provide traffic control at all our fires, car accidents, races, parades and special events freeing up sworn police officers for more important police duties. The summer brings an additional army of 25 Summer Special Officers that patrol in and around our beach park enforcing quality of life issues. We recruit these men and women from area colleges. They are all criminal justice majors looking for a career in law enforcement. They are very dedicated and responsible individuals. The LBPD is happy to serve the City of Long Beach, and will do everything in its power to make your time in Long Beach trouble free. MICHAEL TANGNEY Police Commissioner

t seems hard to believe that I have nearly completed my first year as Superintendent of Schools.

As a parent of two children who have successfully graduated from Long Beach High School, I was already aware of the exceptional programs offered by this district. I was also acquainted with many of the dedicated staff members who work so hard each day to make these programs successful. Now that I have an insider’s view of the workings of this district, I have an even deeper appreciation for all the people and programs that make it so special. Our school district enrolls 4,000 children from pre-K to grade 12 and stretches from Point Lookout and Lido Beach in the east through Long Beach and East Atlantic Beach in the west. We also are pleased to welcome a growing number of high school students from the Island Park schools. The International Baccalaureate Diploma program, introduced in the 2010-11 school year, will graduate its first class of IB Diploma candidates in June. This internationally recognized program prepares students to meet the demands of college while motivating them to become thoughtful, caring and active citizens. At the same time, the high school continues to offer Advanced Placement (AP) and college-level courses, which are open to any student wishing to rise to the challenge. Enrollment in these college readiness programs have more than doubled over the past five years, while at the same time performance continues to improve. At our middle school, we have begun the exploratory phase of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years program, which stresses student inquiry in areas including community and service, health and social education, environment and human ingenuity. If we decide to move ahead, this would be a school-wide program. The middle school also offers the Activities Promoting Thinking (APT) enrichment program for sixth and seventh graders. In addition, the MATHCOUNTS program was introduced this year to give sixth and seventh graders

who excel in math the opportunity to explore mathematical concepts beyond their grade level. Our goal is to ensure that student preparation for college and career readiness gets an early start. This year the district has introduced a grade 3-5 pilot-program called David Weiss SPIRIT, which stands for Specialized Program Integrating Research, IB Principles and 21st Century Technology. Additionally, the Foreign Language in the Elementary Schools (FLES) program provides all elementary students (K-5) with foreign language instruction that excites them about the joy of learning a second language and encourages them to continue their foreign language instruction in Spanish, French or Italian at the middle and high school levels. The Learning Activities to Raise Creativity (LARC) program for gifted and talented students provides weekly enrichment activities to enhance critical thinking, problem solving and creativity. Long Beach also offers a pre-kindergarten program that supports the social, emotional, physical and cognitive development of our youngest learners as we prepare them for kindergarten. The success of these programs is evident as our students continue to excel as scholars, athletes, fine and performing artists and humanitarians, earning recognition at the regional, national and international levels for their accomplishments. Thanks to the community’s support of a comprehensive School Preservation Plan approved in May 2009, all of our buildings are in the process of receiving improvements that will enhance safety, support instructional services and improve efficiency. As the school year comes to a close, I look forward to continuing to work closely with teachers, administrators, parents and concerned community members to give our students every opportunity to develop all the skills they will need to be college and career-ready. DAVID WEISS Superintendent of Schools The Long Beach City School District was named a Best Community for Music Education for the second year in a row. More than 1,600 students participate in 36 bands, orchestras and choral ensembles, with many winning All-State and All-County honors. Courtesy Syntax Communications

In fact, barrier island residents who live outside the city limits — in East Atlantic Beach to the west and Lido Beach and Point Lookout to the east — depend on them. Nassau is governed by an elected Legislature that was formed in January 1996. It replaced the Board of Supervisors, which was ruled unconstitutional because of its weighted voting system. The Legislature’s 19 districts enable constituents to have greater access to their elected representatives. It includes an independent budget director who advises the Legislature on spending and revenue matters. The legislature also enables residents to submit petitions for proposed new laws that legislators are obligated to consider. The legislators serve two-year terms. The Fourth District includes the City of Long Beach, Atlantic Beach, East Atlantic Beach, Lido Beach and Point Lookout. The county executive — currently Edward Mangano — serves a four-year term and is the chief administrator.

TOWN OF HEMPSTEAD The Town of Hempstead is the largest township in the United States with over 142 square miles, a population of approximately 725,000, 34 unincorporated areas, 22 incorporated villages, over 65 parks and marinas and 2,500 miles of city, county and state roads. In 1643, two Englishmen, John Carman and the Reverend Robert Fordham, traveled from Connecticut across the Long Island Sound to Long Island. They represented a group of settlers who wished to purchase from the Indians (the Reuckowacky, the Merockes, the Matinecock, and the Massapequas), the current Towns of Hempstead and North Hempstead. In 1644, the Town of Hempstead was founded when a patent was obtained from William Kieft, the Dutch Governor of New Amsterdam. The name Hempstead seems to derive from Hemel-Hempstead in Great Britain, which means town spot. Hempstead grew steadily in the 1800s and by 1855 it was the most populous town in Queens County with just under 10,500 people. The town, along with the rest of Long Island, supplied the greater metropolitan area with a multitude of farm products and provided abundant recreational opportunities including seashore resorts, fox hunting, polo and horse racing. The population peaked at just over 800,000 in 1970, and is now levelled at approximately 725,000. Today, on the Long Beach barrier island, the Town of Hempstead encompasses Point Lookout and Lido Beach to the east and East Atlantic Beach and Atlantic Beach to the west. The Town maintains two marinas in Point Lookout as well as several beach parks. Hempstead Town has seven elected board members. The Supervisor, Kate Murray, serves a two-year term. The six council members serve four years each.

stablished in 1976, the Long Beach Humane Society is a non-profit, volunteer organization. The LBHS exists solely to champion the ethical and humane treatment of the most unfortunate and neglected animals that are rescued.

The group has been able to survive and continue its 33-year mission only through the generous public contributions that help fund and support its life-saving work. The humane society, which is a separate and independent entity from the Long Beach Animal Shelter, formed a rescue and adoption center, nicknamed "Kitty Cove" in May 2005. Kitty Cove is open to the public 7 days a week and located within the Pet Supplies Plus at 3644 Long Beach Road in Oceanside. With the help of the public, they were able to find homes for more than 500 cats in 2008, nearly a 17 percent

increase over the prior year. In addition to managing its Kitty Cove adoption center and cat/kitten foster care program, the Humane Society provides referrals for people inquiring about trap, neuter and return (TNR), low cost spay/neuter options, where to report animal cruelty and abuse and how to help control the feral cat population plaguing Nassau County. In recent years, the society has worked in conjunction with charities such as Maddie’s Fund Pet Rescue Project, Purina Pet for Seniors, as well as North Shore Animal League. Each month, North Shore Animal League brings its mobile van to the Kitty Cove adoption center to help puppies find a loving home in the community. For more information about volunteer, donation and sponsorship opporunities, or if you are looking to give an animal a home, call (516) 594-1721, visit, or email



escue Ink Inc. — the non-profit animal rescue organization best known for its reality series on the National Geographic Channel, “Rescue Ink: Unleashed” — took over the city’s long-vacant Long Beach Animal Shelter last year. The members of Rescue Ink — a tough, tattooed bunch who, in addition to the series “Rescue Ink: Unleashed,” were featured in a self-titled book in 2009 — founded the group six years ago. Its volunteers include police officers, former military personnel and private investigators that look into cases of animal abuse in the tri-state area and around the world. The facility is described as “a safe haven for all the animals.” The City Council unanimously approved a one-year contract with Rescue Ink to launch a pilot program, aimed at reopening the local shelter, at 770 Park Place, to treat lost, stray or abused animals found by the city’s animal control
