By Brian Powers
Somebody, apparently, is listening at Town Hall. Believing that
recent actions by the Comprehensive Plan Committee - as well
as public reaction to them - have the town "headed toward
chaos" Supervisor Pete Di Modica said Tuesday that he plans
to open up the future of the whole comprehensive planning process
with the Town Board at its next regular meeting on March 3rd.

Planning For The Flood
Building 'In The Zone' Can Effect More Than Just The Offending
Landowner, It Appears
Building in the floodplain. It's an issue that
keeps rearing its slick little head in town these days. And that's
because with less and less available land to build on, there are
fewer choices about where to build.
June Lamarca Tells Her Story
By Rachel X. Weissman
One of June Lamarca's fondest childhood memories from growing
up in the Canarasie section of Brooklyn is the friendship between
herself and a little Italian girl named Nicolette. "I was
teaching her how to speak English and I ended up with an Italian
accent," says Lamarca with a laugh. Years later, after
losing touch with the childhood friend, she saw a picture of
a G.I. returning from World War II on the front of the Daily
News. "Nicolette was greeting him. I tried to find her,
but wasn't able to," says Lamarca wistfully.
