Mayor to County Exec and Supervisor: Sue The FAA Now! It's Plane Wrong!
Mayor Koblenz, on Monday, April 11th, wrote to County Executive Ed Mangano and to Town of North Hempstead Supervisor, Judi Bosworth, calling on them to consider immediately suing the FAA to gain equal distribution of the flight patterns. In the past, he had tried other avenues of recourse, but "they have been unavailing" he said. "Hopefully, through a law suit against the FAA we could gain some relief from the excessive noise and pollution."
Below are links to copies of the letters which were sent to these officials.

Krav Maga Arrives With Gusto in East Hills
Trustee Clara Pomerantz brings the concept of Krav Maga, Israeli self- defense, to East Hills "It is fun, challenging, and a useful way to stay fit" she concluded. So with a public purpose in mind, she arranged for the instructors, scheduled the event, and then solicited residents to enroll. She invited children to participate in one class and adults to enroll in another time slot. As the reservations started pouring in, she realized she would even have to add another adult class.
