Why did it take an obituary announcement for such a well known man to let us know of his passing?Read More I think that should have been ""front page news'''' LAST WEEK~!!!
Vincent March 27, 2014 at 09:05 am
Patty Sinisi: I agree. But this is the 'new' Patch. These people running it haven't a clue. TheyRead More even put stories in the Mineola edition about East Hampton. From where they sit in their offices in Manhattan East Hampton is just another part of Long Island. You can rest assured that if Geoffrey Walter was still woroking for the Patch and still the Editor of the Mineola Patch it would have been the main story "LAST WEEK".

Frank was one of the true good men on the planet. He was dedicated to the community and devoted toRead More his family. his kindness and contributions to Port will be sorely missed.

Stretch was a "quiet giant" in our community, positively impacting so very many areas fromRead More youth activities to the Chamber of Commerce, to the Town of North Hempstead Waterfront Commission and local boating, never seeking recognition or accolades. His legacy will live on in our town and in the hearts of everyone he touched.
hank ratner October 25, 2013 at 03:15 pm
May Stretch's memory live on forever. Rest in peace my friend.
Nancy Bettcher Dooley October 27, 2013 at 12:55 pm
Stretch Ryder ... truly one of the good guys ... will be dearly missed by so many ... our hearts goRead More out to his beautiful family. His legacy will live on, not only in the history books, but in the hearts of all who knew him. RIP Stretch, RIP.

Mrs. Hanley was a devoted and loving teacher. St. Peter's School was blessed to have her teachRead More countless students over the decades of her career. To Mrs. Hanley her work as a teacher was her vocation in life, and she did it in an exceptional and beautiful way. We know God welcomed her home with open arms.
George Mulligan March 30, 2013 at 09:04 pm
Both my children had Mrs. Hanley for a teacher. As mentioned above she was a dedicated woman whoRead More spent much of her life helping the students at St. Peter's School. But my favorite memory of Mrs Hanley and her husband was a night we ran into them at the Harbor Inn. My wife and I were celebrating a birthday as were the Hanleys. We shared some good food and drinks in a great environment on Manhasset Bay.

Mrs. Pfister was a wonderful woman in every sense of the word. She possessed a loving spirit thatRead More welcomed all whom she came in contact with. Port Washington was a better community because Mrs. Pfister was an active part of it. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her devoted family. Be assured God welcomed her with loving arms.

Cynthia was my dearest friend for almost 60 years. She loved her family dearly. She was alwaysRead More called Aunt Cindy by my three children as they also loved her very much. She will always be in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. God has a very special angel since he took her home. Beverly Garnick & family

Thank you for sharing.

I wish there were more people like mr. and mrs. Lewyt. If I had the money I would give it to thisRead More shelter so that they could build a large fenced in dog park to allow the dogs to play, interact with each other and get some excercise. The odds of the older cats and dogs getting adopted are slim and they are there for life. I wish there cages were bigger and wish they had more land to make it possible for them to create this life changing dog park that they so desperately need.
Mel Sternberg December 29, 2012 at 10:56 pm
If it were not for the efforts of Mrs. Lewyt and the considerable support of her husband the NorhRead More Shore Animal League would probably not be here. Mr.lewyt made millions with his vacuum cleaner company, made substantial contributions and taught the League modern marketing practices. Your obituary could have done better.

Yesterday, Nassau County paid farewell to one of its finest. By all accounts, Highway PatrolmanRead More Joseph Olivieri was a cop's cop who made his family, his friends and his beloved department proud. All to often in today's fast past world we loose sight of the dedicated, tireless and vigilant service preformed by Nassau County's Finest. All to often the inherent dangers of the job surface and there are times when even one of the Finest falls. Let us remember this good mans sacrifice and for his commitment to put the safety and security of others first. Rest in peace Officer Olivieri. May God Bless you and provide comfort to all those suffering by your passing.

Well said.

Yes this absolutely REEKS of politics and cover up. Did the driver of the Cadillac escalade give aRead More blood sample?? Why not?? They killed a police officer after all. Oh wait, I forgot, there was someone in the vicinity with a BAC of .09 An easy target for political gain. An easy scapegoat to get the connected Cadillac driver off the hook. Maybe a fundraiser for mr Ryan's defense is in order. We can't allow witch hunters to prevail. Not in the 21st century. And a special investigation should be conducted to determine why the Cadillac Escalade is not being held accountable for their actions.
J Boyd October 26, 2012 at 06:47 am
Don't you conspiracy theorists think that a cops kid (Mr.Ryan) would be the one avioidingRead More prosecution if all these scary theories you say are true???????? Did you miss that in the article?? I do agree--the Escalade should be looked into--but how do you know it wasn't???? Leave the law to the professionals. The lawyers make it entertaining enough. A police officer was killed performing his duties. I can promise you any and every avenue was checked and double checked, especially because of an officers death.

You are supposed to move over when you see the lights as well.
David October 21, 2012 at 04:05 pm
You right I did miss a few days added on. No matter what is said the flag should not be at halfRead More staff Mangano has no authority to order the flag down. It has nothing to do with a "cop hater". It has to do with the rules!
