Let each town fund it's own services according to their wishes. Diversity is maintained and the services will match the needs and cultural wishes of the respective communities.

Orignally - I liked the idea of CP library access, but since I've been exposed to the Westbury library..it's outrageous how the Westbury children run about and misbehave. The selections of material are supportive of said behaviors and sub-culture. Ganster rap CDs DVDs and other 'useless' materials are in abundance. Go any given afternoon and its a video arcade for kids in the internet room. Where's the intellectual and creative stimulus? Well I'll get my own books,DVDs and internet. CP should either go it alone or just give it up. I will ad that the staff is decent, but they're fighting a loosing battle. We should not leave our library services in the incapale hands of Westbury trustees.

A way to merge without a big expense on rebuilding Carle Place School is to accept all Westbury resident West of Post Av. Most residence in this section send their children to private school because of the incompetence of Westbury School District and it's Superintendent. Constance Clark and her 300k salary could rob the part of Westbury it serves, West of Post Av.
Rigged elections, lawsuits and under-preforming School system should be kept operating in the smallest of areas.
Residents west of Post av. are deserving to have a good School district.

These are some pretty serious claims you are making without evidence. Sure, a $300k salary is a lot of remuneration, but super-sized superintendent salaries are endemic on Long Island and it seems to be more of a broad institutional problem than one centered in Westbury.

By the way, it seems like you are the one who needs education. Most of your post is absolutely unintelligible. For instance, "Rigged elections, lawsuits and under-preforming School system should be kept operating in the smallest of areas." Take out some books on writing from the Westbury Library; they may help lend order to your frenetic, nonsensical writing style.

This post is littered with typos and incorrect usage: "We are fighting a loosing battle." It seems that you are the one who should be going to the library more often. Also, it's a bit of a stretch to say that GANGSTER RAP CDs are supportive of misbehavior and subculture. You get a bunch of young kids hanging out in a public place they are likely to be loud and cause trouble. These are problems that can be fixed with a little bit of planning.

I am deeply disgusted and disappointed by some of the posts here. Its very shameful that attitudes such as this still exist here on long Island. As for the comment posted by beingheldhostage " All of the residents west of Post Ave" All of Westbury deserves a better school district. As for the comment posted by Disgusted in Carle Place, kids are kids and will behave as such, whether they are black, white, Latino, Asian, Indians or Eskimos. Carle Place is our neighboring town, we must want the same thing for our neighbors that we have for ourselves. The good things my family have, I wish my neighboring families have. Let righteousness guide your life
