Maureen Healy, a senior at Stella Maris High School, was incorrectly identified as Maureen Hickey in a photo caption last week. Healy and her fellow seniors purchased a bicycle at Aces Bicycles in Brooklyn (who gave them a good deal) and presented it to Stella Maris custodian Sethne Fletcher for Christmas.
A group from the Tubridy offspring is following in the family's footsteps. On Thursday, January 6, they re-opened the old Ryan McFadden's on 42 street and Second avenue. Best of luck!
Regardless of what Mr. O'Leary said in last week's Bag Of Mail, the Mure family of Beach 145 street should continue decorating their house for the holidays. Not only is it a wonderful display for the community, but this year they raised $13,500 for Juvenile Diabetes. The stores on Beach 129 street--Sammy's Variety, Beach Bagels and Plum Tomatoes--should also be credited for helping the Mure family in various ways.
Watch out for cellular phone scams. People have been getting calls from someone claiming to be a Belle Atlantic employee saying that money is owed on their cellular bill. The "employee" asks the cellular owner to cut a check over the phone or service will be disconnected. Don’t fall for it!
Work is taking place at 107-10 Shore Front parkway, removing bricks from the structure as required by the Department of Buildings. Earlier reports by the Buildings Department labeled the conditions of the buildings "unsatisfactory".
While on the topic of the Dayton-Seaside buildings, things are still up in the air. The owners of the property are in court in every branch of government--in city court for violations issued by Housing, Preservation and Development; in state court over the matter of the rent strike and appointment of a receiver; and in federal court to deal with the foreclosure on the property.
While a school bus was letting off children at Beach 89 street and Beach Channel drive, with its stop sign out and lights flashing, cars and another school bus continued passing in the opposite lane. Remember the law--both lanes of traffic must stop.
Scaffolding must be the new "in" décor. These hideous looking things surround our schools, apartment buildings and even the 100 Precinct. The positive side is if it snows, the sidewalk will be clear for walking.
Kudos to the All American Deli and Butcher in Broad Channel. Staffers from The Wave ordered fresh ham, expertly trimmed, boned and seasoned for their holiday dinners and were thrilled with the quality of the meat. The six foot hero special, complete with six pounds of salads and a free 12 pack of beer, was also a big hit. Try the three and six foot chicken cutlet with fresh mozzarella and roasted peppers. To die for! And, on top of it all, the owners are kind, courteous and most of all, professional. Keep up the good work!
