The New Year’s Day Inaugurations I covered early Monday were bone-deep significant: Nassau County Executive LAURA CURRAN, Hempstead Town Supervisor LAURA GILLEN, and Hempstead Town Clerk SYLVIA CABANA. And it was a freezing 14 ℉ / -10 ℃ during Curran’s historic Swearing-In, held outside the Theodore Roosevelt Executive & Legislative Building in Mineola!

Nassau County State of the County Address 2012

Nassau County State of the County Address 2012

From LONG ISLAND – by Ann Parry (ann-parry.com)

During the March 14, 2012 State of the County Address, Nassau County’s Movie Industry was one of the topics highlighted by County Executive EDWARD MANGANO.

Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano gives State of the County Address, on Wednesday night, March 14, 2012, at Cradle of Aviation museum, Garden City, New York, USA. Mangano (front) was introduced by Legislator Peter Schmidt (at podium) Nassau County Presiding Officer and Majority Leader. (Ann Parry/Ann Parry, ann-parry.com)

I already knew about one of the films mentioned – the Phil Spector Biopic (2012), starring Al Pacino and Helen Mirren – because my daughter Sue was an Extra when some scenes were shot at Nassau County’s Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building, Mineola, in 2011.

Understandably, Extras aren’t supposed to start chatting with principal actors, but when my daughter was positioned near Ms. Mirren on the grand stairway leading to the building’s entrance, Sue was concerned how Mirren’s shawl was dragging on the steps.

So  – when the cameras weren’t on – Sue pointed out the hazardously droopy shawl to Ms. Mirren, who was charmingly grateful for the head’s up.

2012 Nassau County Legislature Postpones Controversial Police Precinct Vote

Nassau County Legislature Postpones Controversial Police Precinct Vote

From LONG ISLAND – by Ann Parry (ann-parry.com)
February 28, 2012

Before heading out to Mineola yesterday to cover Nassau County Legislature’s public meeting, I checked some government and facebook pages, and found out that the controversial vote about merging police precincts was postponed. (Vote is tentatively rescheduled for March 5, 2012.)

Of any Nassau County legislators who have publicly weighed in on the issue so far, Republican legislative members appear to favor CLOSING, and Democratic legislative members appear to favor KEEPING OPEN, the 4 out of 8 Nassau County police precincts in question.

While getting verification about the postponement, I learned the “We the People Save our Waters Coalition” was holding a noon rally about stopping the long-term lease of Nassau County Sewage Treatment Plants, and it would be held outside the county’s Theodore Roosevelt Executive & Legislative Building, so I headed out to catch that first.
