Weather Alert  

LIGHT SNOW AND SPOTTY LIGHT FREEZING RAIN POSSIBLE THIS EVENING As temperatures slowly rise this evening, light snow should quickly change over to rain across Long Island, New York City and the suburbs just north and west, and across coastal and southeastern Connecticut, with at least a coating of accumulation, and as much as an inch farther away from the coast. As precipitation mixes with and changes to rain, road temperatures in these areas may still be below freezing even as air temperatures slowly rise to the mid and upper 30s, and a light glaze of ice may be possible on untreated surfaces. So plan on slippery conditions this evening even as temperatures slowly rise.

Eaton's Neck, NY - July 8, 2016 - At the annual Independence Day Parade in Eaton’s Neck, Legislator William R. Spencer, M.D. had the privilege to pay tribute to a true American hero, Roy Beach.  

Born on the 4th of July in 1926, Roy Beach married his wife Maureen in 1950 and together they raised 5 children. A grandfather of 11 and great-grandfather of 13, Roy has been a pillar of strength for his family, community and country. He served in the Navy during World War II, stormed the beaches of Normandy and served in the Korean War. He went on to become a volunteer fireman for a total of 63 years; 20 of them in the Levittown Fire Department  and the rest in the Eaton’s Neck Fire Department where he served as a Fire Commissioner for 30 years.

Today he continues to be an active member and works the firehouse radio room during alarms. Mr. Beach’s contribution and service to our country is an inspiration to all who know him.
