LI Cruzin For A Cure In Hicksville Sept. 9

Annual prostate cancer awareness event to showcase classic cars at Sears Auto Center
Hicksville will act as an outdoor showroom for hundreds of classic and antique cars on Sunday, Sept. 9 as Long Island Cruzin For a Cure, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting prostate cancer among men, rolls into the Sears Auto Center on Route 106/107 starting at 9 a.m. The event, which last year featured 535 cars and more than 1,800 spectators, will also host free prostate cancer testing (PSA) for men through North Shore-LIJ. Sandy Kane, event Written by Cory Twibell Photo and information courtesy of Antonnews.com founder, noted that one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime and that more than 230,000 cases were recorded in the United States last year alone. None of the money collected goes to a car club, a promoter or for administrative overhead. All of the proceeds collected go to prostate cancer testing and education here on Long Island. Most men say it wont happen to me or I will do it next week. Next week could be too late. PSA testing is quick and painless and could save your life. I know because it saved my life, Kane said.

September 4 First Day of School In Hicksville !

Its been slightly more than seven years since HixNews went live on our new website. The first website issue appeared in April of 2005. Thanks to contributions from alumni, the newsletter expenses have been covered during this time period. The treasury has dwindled but continues to maintain after all these years. There were expenses in the beginning that are no longer valid. Our only expenses now are the monthly Earthlink fee of $19.95 and an annual domain fee of $20.00. We had a little scare recently when Earthlink advised that we were approaching the maximum bandwidth allowable on a monthly basis. Going beyond the maximum means its going to be more costly. Roger did some shuffling and was able to minimize the problem lurking on the horizon. We are in good stead right now. If the need to ask for contributions becomes a reality, we will certainly contact our expanding readership. Thanks. Warmest Regards Buffalo Bob Casale

There is an old rumor going around that the Marines are part of the Navy. It's true... the MEN DEPARTMENT. Herb Pearce 1962

Hey Guys & Gal I was just reading the August News Letter and it was stated that August 3 is Coast Guard Day. It is actually August 4. Originally called the Revenue Marine founded on August 4, 1790. Sincerely Chris Wilkenshoff 1974 USCG Retired Youre right and my apologies, Chris! I pulled up a random holidays of August webpage and went with that information. After going to Wikipedia (the absolute and guaranteed source of all knowledge), I confirmed that Coast Guard Day is August 4 of each year. Thank you Chris for the correction and your proud service! David Rubin 82

Going through the August HixNews and "The Class of 1943 Year Book" I noticed that Ray Rusch was a graduate. Mr. Rusch later became a teacher and I had him for 3 years. He eventually became principal at the High School. We were sadly informed via, HixNews, that he passed away in 2003. My question is: why is he not listed in the "In Memoriam" section under "1943?" Pete Foster '57, St. Augustine, FL Editor Note: The oversight will be corrected. Thanks for the Good Lookin Out.

Bob: Im not sure if youre doing anything with the pictures of all 1973 graduates, but I would like to make you aware of the following. I am a graduate of HHS 1973 and that year they messed up 4 people in the year book, I am one of them! Under my picture is Diana Pascola's name and my name is under her picture. I believe they made the error with Paul Parson and another guy with long hair, can't recall his name. All the best, Linda Ruggiero Parrella 1973 Editor Note: The sad thing is I don't have access to a 1973 yearbook. I have personally 1960 1961 1962 1963 1964 1965 and 1966. I can access the following at classmates 1959 1967 1968 1969 1972 1974 1975 1976 1977 1978 1979. I wish I had all the yearbooks because everyone loves pictures and the old ones are premier. Thanks buffalo bob casale

Thanks to Kathy Hannaman for submitting the following So you are in Sabadell, near Barcelona, Spain, & You decide to go out and have a nice, late afternoon stroll around the town square with the rest of the folks. All of a sudden this guy in a top hat and formal tux comes out with a large Bass Violin and starts playing the final movement of Beethoven's 9th symphony. Well, that's kinda' neat. So, you hang around to watch for a few moments. A crowd begins to gather in curiosity, enjoying the guy play. What happens next will blow your mind. Way cool ! GOOD STUFF !

Hello Bob, great layout. The pics and the older ones give a great visual story. If Schwartz's furniture store is still there , the Rheinhardt Hotel was the back part of it, on the corner of E.Cherry St.. Goldman's store is on the corner of E Carl St. If you look at the empty lot next to Dwyer's bar, that was the old location of Blackman Hicksville Plumbing Supply. Their yard opened to Cherry St. between the back of Dwyer's and the next house. They moved to Hazel Street in 1959 after the fire at their old location. Thank you again, a great job. Mike Dolan

Hello Bob, Looking again at your layout in the August issue, I shorted you a picture that should have been included with the initial batch. This one is after the one that shows Scheiners drugstore looking North the rest of the way to Nicholai St. As Olga's ladies foundation store has provided tremendous support to the female population of Hicksville and the ladies from surrounding communities, I feel badly about omitting her store. Please place the picture in your file in case you use them in the future. Mike

Editor Note: Done and just to insure continuity, the lost shot is shown below

Heres a picture that was taken in 1948 in front of what was Blackman Plumbing Supply. To the best of my knowledge, the empty lot next to Olgas was where Blackman was before the fire.

Well, heres a picture that was taken in front of Blackman in May of 1948who are these two cuties??? Olgas Specialty shop is in backgroundone of the two graduated with the class of 1964!!!

Also, check out the parade up Broadway the end of May

Bob and HixNews editorsgreat job this month on the newsletter. I really enjoyed the old pictures of Hicksville. Very sad. The destruction at was the year we graduated from Hicksville High. Two great things came to an end. Didn't realize it at the time. Lorraine and I went to a 1950's exhibit at the L.I.Museum in Stony Brook. The exhibit was mostly about Levittown but there were two Hicksville items there. One was a qoute from Billy Joel about growing up in Hicksville and the other was in a Long Island yearbook display. They had about ten pictures of women on the wall in two rows. You had to match the woman in the top row, current picture, with their high school picture in the bottom row. Gail Fallon, class of 1955, was one of the women in the display. Great exhibit. Not very big though. I'll talk to you soon. Your friend here at home Chris Andersen

Attached is a newspaper article of Mr. Leon Galloway, HHS teacher, JHS principal and I think HHS principal. I don't have a date for it but I think somewhere around the mid to late 1930's. Steve Moddle 1953.

I scanned the document and the text of the newspaper article was tough to read, so I typed the text. Then found a picture of Mr. Galloway circa 1961 sitting at his desk when he was Principal. Mr. Galloway aged well and was one helluva man.

Mr. Galloway, head of the commercial department of Hicksville High School, is a collector of old confederate paper money. He came to Hicksville during the well-known year of depression, 1929, and has remained in that community since then. Born in Kentucky, he was educated at Syracuse University. Mr. Galloway also holds a degree from Columbia University. He is 35 years of age and single.

Dear HixNews I really enjoy reading your monthly newsletter and would appreciate a correction be made on my behalf. You have me listed as living in MA, when in fact I live in Napa Valley, California, and have for the past 40 years. Also, our anniversary was omitted from July's listing. Would appreciate correction shown below. Thanks for all the hard work from you and your staff and keep up the great work. Cheers Bob McWilliams 1955 Birthdate: August 30 Anniversary: July 18, 1964 Editor Note: Hi Bob. I made the corrections and apologize for the omission. Happy Anniversary a bit late! Thanks for letting us know. Val

We are planning a multi-year reunion for 6/29/13 in Hicksville. Please contact so we can possibly work together. Ray Gamble, 1971 Editor Note: Write up a blurb that you are organizing a multi year reunion that will be held on June 29th 2013 at a place to be determined. What classes are you including??? Is it a multi year reunion??? Will entertainment be included? What kind? Where is the venue to be held??? What are the costs? There are many intangibles at the moment. Get some facts, some figures, some solid answers, then we can see what kind of response evolves. Thanks Buffalo Bob Casale Ray, I'd also like to make you aware of the free web hosting at hixreunion.com for HHS reunions. Roger Whitaker, webmaster for hixnews.com

Hi: I have relocated and have a new address and email. It is: (concealed). Randolph (Randy) Blum 1963 Editor Note: Anyone desiring to get in touch with Randy, send a note to editors@hixnews.com

Hi Buffalo Bob: As a retired secretary from Hicksville High School, I'd like to offer this advice to anyone looking to connect up with a high school reunion. Many times when a reunion is in the planning stages, the high school is informed either by a professional company who is organizing the reunion or by the organizers themselves. My suggestion is to contact the guidance office at HHS or the main office to see if they have any info available. If they don't, wait a few months and check again Peggy Moldovak Gill Class of 1967 Peggy Received a note (see below) from Joe Carfora from class of 1962. Their reunion is in October and Joe asked for a phone number or email address so he can add his class reunion at the school. Thanks so much. love yah buffalo bob casale

Hi Bob, I circulated the note from Peggy Moldovak Gill 67, in the last issue of HixNews, to our reunion committee. We would like to take her up on the suggestion of informing Hicksville High, either through the guidance office or the main office, of our reunion on October 6th of this year. Do you have an email address for an appropriate person we can send our website link to? If so, if you can pass the email address on to me, Ill email that person and provide them with our website link to use in passing reunion information on to anyone who might inquire at the high school. Please let me know. Thanks Joe Carfora

Hi Bob and Joe: I have some info for you in contacting the Guidance Office at HHS...The phone # is 516-7332220..Anyone of the secretaries there will be able to help you. The office is normally open 7:303:30 M-F..Right now they are on summer hours which end at 2:30.. Unfortunately, anything you wish to have posted on a bulletin board would have to be faxed or sent by snail mail. Hicksville offers no internet access to most of it's employees (I believe the only ones with such privilege are administrators). The mailing address is Guidance Department, 180 Division Avenue, Hicksville, NY 118014899.. Good luck Peggy

Hi Editors, I have been away from my Newsletter for both June and July...long story, however, today, I got to see them both and enjoy them immensely. It rekindles memories of my years growing up in Hicksville and how I missed it when my family moved away to NJ in 1963. I see that you, Bob, have made what sounds to be a really wonderful CD. I hope you still have one available that you could send to me. Let me know the cost and I will send it to cover costs and mailing. My address in FL: <hidden> I hope all is going well for each of you and I thank you once again for all the news and info you send to us each month...I know I thoroughly enjoy it and by the reading of the letters, so many others do as well. Cheers, Barbara Di Bella Dowd Editor Note: Your disc went out in the mail today, 6 August 2012. You wouldnt believe what I went through to complete this effort. Computer systems are so different and create their own indiosynchrocies. Hope that is spelled wright?! LOL Hi Bob: Thanks for your response...I will be looking forward to the CD and will let you know when I receive it. Hope you and your daughter and grandaughter are well. xo, Barbara

Dear Bob, Thank you for the CD...it came on Thursday. I tried playing it in the car player and it won't work in there. Don't know why. It will play on a player in the house and had a chance to play it today. It's a good grouping of songs...brings back memories (sigh) and good times. Thank you very much. I hope that you and your family are doing well. We are doing great here and have made our plans to attend the 50th reunion of the class of '62 in October! I am sure it is going to be great! Take care, xoxo, Barbara DiBella (1962) & John Dowd

A note to Dick from the editors: I thought you were a subscriber to the newsletter in the past. Your brother, Jeff, and I were good friends in high school and spent many hours sharing time. Another good friend was Chris Polanski who is living now in North Carolina. I heard about your brother passing through the grapevine but have no information surrounding his death. It's good to have you aboard. Buffalo Bob Casale 1961

Bob, I was a subscriber, but just recently changed my e-mail address. My brother Jeff died on 03/30/1990. He had developed a non-malignant brain tumor that kept growing and they were not able to operate. He was living in Saugatuck, Michigan at the time. After high school he attended Hope College in Holland, MI and stayed in Michigan for awhile. He then lived in California, Florida and then back to Michigan. He was married and had 2 children. His son is a lawyer in Charleston, SC and his daughter lives in Michigan as does his wife. I'm currently living in Annapolis, Maryland with my wife who was from Levittown. We are getting ready to celebrate our 50th. Time flys. I have enjoyed the newsletter and read it every month. Dick

While attending either Junior High or HHS I had a teacher named Gertrude Wetterauer who taught History and Social Studies. She once told the class that she wrote historical novels using a pseudonym. Does anyone know either the title of a novel that she wrote or the name that she used?-Harvey Weiss "47

Thanks to Kathy McDonald Corey for this cooking tip! This is really great, I am going to try it the next time I want mashed potatoes or potato salad! If you take the time to watch this, you will not only be glad you did, but you will forward this to all your friends and relatives, any cook. Just when you thought you knew everything about boiling potatoes. To all who love making potato salad but hate peeling the boiled potatoes, here is the solution for easy peeling. his will BLOW your mind. Well, we do learn something new every day. I wish I had known about this thirty years ago. Peeling the cooked potato was the least desirable part in making a potato salad. Enjoy. It works Click here: Dawn Wells Potato Peeling Video

Hi HixNews: I am doing a story on the Double Dates, a vocal group from 1959 that included Tom Doherty. I believe he graduated in 1960 and looking for his graduation picture. Would you be able to help or forward this to someone who might? Thank you very much, Al Leichter

Sure See attached. Tom's graduation picture and one of the roster of West Village Green back in 1957. I don't believe Tom participated in school activities. Seems to be he was one of those Greasers from back in the day,maybe in one of the car groups.

Are you doing other groups? Six students from the Brooklyn Bridge graduated from Hicksville High and John and Jim Cunningham (The Twin Tones) had their single Joanne climb the music charts back in the fifties. If I can be of further assistance, give me a shout. Sincerely Buffalo Bob Casale HixNews and Class of 1961

Buffalo Bob: Thank you so much. That is fantastic. One of the Double Dates lives here (Staunton, VA) so I did an interview with her and with the group leader Ben Savage (via e-mail) and will do a story. I try to talk with anyone I run across locally. Again, thanks so much for your help. I'll be sure to credit you. Thanks also for the pictures of the Twin Tones with Alan Freed & the Brooklyn Bridge. Just great, Al

Hi Bob: Do you know of Tom is still alive, where he's living and/or contact information? Thanks Al

Yes, alive and doing okay (for people our age). Our age is not providing limits to performance, it's providing limits to functioning. Actually, I get up every morning and watch the sun come up and marvel at the fact that I can appreciate that while others cannot. Tom and his bride, the former Virginia Kolenik, are living in Amityville on Long Island. You can give him a shout at (email concealed) Any problems, please let me know. Thanks bob

Hi everyone, First off, I want to than ALL of you for all the hard work that you put into the Hicksville Newsletter. I can't wait to open my email on the first of each month. thank you, thank you thank you! In the last newsletter, I was on the casales corner where you had pictures that we had to figure out what it was. Well, the pictures never appeared, only the answers. Did anyone else have this problem?? Donna Schrimpe 1966

Donna Working on that little problem. Will let you know when it's resolved. Thanks love yah buffalo bob casale

Hmmmm, the pictures show up in Firefox, but not that danged Internet Explorer browser. Some seem to be out of place, too. Will dig into it. Roger

How about I change it to Adobe? Or switch the original document by eliminating the page break. I just figured out how to do that. I'm learning about the Windows 7 layout that is very new to me. love da buff

Roger I've attached a PDF file of the same thing. love da buff

That's a lot better. Now everybody sees the same thing. Roger
