Village of Lindenhurst Deputy Mayor Maryann Weckerle and Trustee Joan Masterson along with local business leaders, small business owners, and Chamber of Commerce members from various towns and villages attended Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and Nassau County Executive Laura Curran’s press conference at Bak & Vogel paint store located on North Wellwood Avenue to urge the New York State Senate to adopt the Internet Fairness and Conformity Act in the 2018 -19 State Budget.
In its current state, only online sellers that are located in New York State are required to collect sales tax from New York State residents. This essentially provides a tax free marketplace for online retailers such as Amazon and eBay. Because of this, online retailers can sell their products at a much cheaper and competitive rate than local businesses can. Deputy Mayor Maryann Weckerle stated during the press conference that is makes it difficult for local merchants, like her family owned and operated Bak & Vogel paint store, to compete with online retailers and because of that, many consumers lean towards online purchases. The Internet Fairness and Conformity Act would require most online retailers to follow the same sales tax collection laws as brick-and-mortar stores, such as Bak & Vogel, do.
The Village of Lindenhurst has started the process of knocking down the blighted properties located at the corner of East Hoffman Avenue and High Street. The three longtime eyesores will be demolished to make way for the development of a municipal parking lot. [Read more…]

A World Premiere Musical

All Tickets $15
Almost 30 years ago, while attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, a story was born. Attending a school where so many talented famous people learned their craft, Gerry always wondered – what about the ones who never made it? Where are they now? What happened in their lives that changed the course of their dreams? As a struggling actor, writer, musician Gerry often posed the question – what would have happened if the Beatles broke up when they were 17 and no one ever heard of Paul McCartney? And what if “Unknown Paul” became an accountant but STILL wrote every song he’s ever written. And what if he appeared in a record studio at 50 years old and tried to get his music heard? Would anyone listen? So, drawing on this and from the people and experiences in his life Gerry wrote an outline for BTG. Never satisfied, Gerry completed a dozen re-writes over the next few years but the screenplay sat un-produced in a drawer for almost 6 years! Seeing Bridge The Gap come to life on stage has been a dream come true twice over.
