LocalNews.com | Nassau County PBA and it's president Mr. James Carver announced up to a $5,000 donation to help with Vet expenses for abused pit bull puppy, "Harper". The playful pit bull has been treated at My Pet's Vet in Huntington since September 2013, where it was brought in with multiple injuries brought on by human abuse. The injuries included amputation of her rear leg and ear. Bob Sowers of Nassau County SPCA, reported that the pup was purposely kept out of the media so that authorities could build their case against "multiple players." Arrests are expected soon and prosecution will include multiple charges including practicing medical procedures without a license.
The LIE overpass on New Hyde Park Road in North Hills was renamed Sunday for a Nassau County police officer killed in the line of duty on the highway in 2012.
More than 120 officers, family members and friends attended the dedication ceremony, held at Nassau County Police Headquarters in Mineola, for what will now be called the Joseph P. Olivieri Jr. Memorial Bridge. Later on, the unveiling of the actual sign took place on the Long Island Expressway in North Hills.
