CRANE POND OPEN FOR OUTDOOR ICE SKATING...STUDENT NEWS NETWORK STARTING
Release Date: January 15, 2011
CRANE POND OPEN FOR OUTDOOR ICE SKATING --- Crane Pond, located off of Pipeline Road in the Edgemont section of town, is open for outdoor ice skating this weekend. Town staff have to monitor conditions of the ice to make sure it's safe for skating. I was at the pond today and saw a group of skaters enjoying themselves. Because of the temperature - (which is COLD) we anticipate that skating will be safe Sunday & Monday.
STUDENT NEWS NETWORK-- Students (high school and middle school) who want to learn about government and gain experience learning about the media are invited to help start a news program (SNN-student news network). SNN iwll be a student run news program that will air on cable TV. Students will be provided with the opportunity to report on whatever topics they choose. They will attend government meetings, interview who they like, profile fellow students and provide commentary. If you know students interested in participating in SNN please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FIRST PLANNING MEETING OF SNN THIS TUESDAY BETWEEN 4:15 PM and 5:15 PM AT GREENBURGH TOWN HALL. The response, so far, has been amazing. Over 30 students have expressed interest in getting involved. PATCH (affiliated with AOL) may work wtih student reporters. They already have a fantastic website. A former reporter for the NY TIMES and a former producer for NBC offered to help students make this a big success.
REMINDER--SECOND HALF OF SCHOOL PROPERTY TAXES DUE BY END OF JANUARY. The town does not set the school tax rates. We act as a collector of taxes. You can pay your school tax bill on line: www.greenburghny.com and you can also pay your taxes with your credit card.
