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~!!!

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".

I had the great good fortune to be a student of Mr. Love for three classes: two at Great Neck NorthRead More Senior High and one in college. The first was tenth grade Biology, next was twelfth grade Physics, and the last was Physics again at the New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury. He was first and foremost a gentleman. He expected all of his students to be ladies and gentlemen as well. He was of course always Mr. Love. In return for the first time in our lives we became Mr. And Miss. We were men and women not kids who had just first names. Some of us even had, “great perspicacity!” He loved his work and shared his interest and enthusiasm for science and life with us. We learned he had heart surgery and no longer ate steak not even the hamburgers he mentioned from time to time. We learned that a science test could include extra questions about almost anything in the world. We learned that the only gift he accepted from his students was his slide rule tie bar he often worn. He even taught us how to use that great manual computer (a slide rule) that got men in danger safely home from the moon. When I got my Masters in Education Mr. Love was one of the teachers I was proud and pleased to send a formal announcement. From when I met him in 1964 to now Mr. Love has been one of my guides through life. I miss him Dan Gruen

His famous line was: "Ms. (last name), you're a woman of innate intellectual ability and astuteRead More perspicacity, what is....?" Great teacher! Laurie Edelman

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.

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.

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.

RIP Mrs Newburger. However come on PW patch. It's not breaking news if I already read it in theRead More Newspaper. I love the fact of getting local news to my phone but if the news hit the street very early this am, then by 2pm its just not relevant. This isn't the first time. Come on patch I have faith in you!!

She was truly a woman with class and stature. When she became involved in politics she tried to doRead More her best to help and support everyone from the bottom all the way to the top. THE TOWN OF NORTH HEMPSTEAD was her home and she took care of many people's needs from ALL WALKS OF LIFE. A TRUE TRAILBLAZER, RIP MAY NEWBURGER!!

Shiva was in fact observed in Pepe Chouake's daughter's home. Many people were misinformed aboutRead More this. Even though shiva is over, you are still welcome to come or call. I am Shoshannah, Pepe's daughter. Here is the eulogy I wrote for her at this memorial site: http://memorialwebsites.legacy.com/PEPECHOUAKE/homepage.aspx

For everything he did we should be grateful. Under the watch of these brave men, Children can playRead More safely without any worries. Kindness should be in each of our hearts for his service to his country. Tomorrow, i hope everything goes well for geoff's family; He will be truly missed. Everyone could learn a lesson from such a brave man doing his duty. Probably too late to say, but we should look at the true service he provided to us and paid the ultimate price. Out of deep respect for him and Love, I Cannot Express how deep my condolences are.

I'm a retired NYPD Captain and sometimes I had the pleasure of supervising great cops like Geof.Read More Subsequent to my own induction into the NYPD Honor Legion, I met a lot more great guys - like Geof. I didn't have the opportunity to know Geof, but I knew many like him, i.e. I knew the type. Just couldn't stop serving and helping others via public, uniformed service. God bless his family; he'll be missed! Dukes2352@AOL.com
