The best snow remover - sunny warm weather - is starting to put a dent in the 24 inches of unplowed snow in Woodhaven. The forecast for this week is for a warm rain, so that should melt away more of the remnants of our monster snowstorm.

Until then, watch where you walk and make sure your winter clothes are out. If you need hats and scarfs, buy them on Woodhaven's BID from Dexter Court to 100th Street. Winter is not through with us yet.

And if you don't want to go out to eat or cook, make a call and have one of the many great restaurants deliver dinner to your door. But take heart, just over five weeks to Daylight Savings Time and six weeks to the warmth of spring.

During the recent snowstorm, the American flags flew proudly above it all. So fly your American flags with pride above all others.

Unfortunately, the rumors you have heard throughout the community are true: the St. Luke's Church and School property has been sold. This beautiful church and its excellent school have been a veritable Woodhaven landmark, and many of the older Woodhavenites attended their pre-school program when they were little ones. Hopefully the school can relocate within Woodhaven.

As you have probably heard, Walmart will be closing many of its stores. When Walmart moves in, many small shopping strips suffer. Then customers become so accustomed to Walmart, when it closes customers have nowhere to shop and employees lose their jobs. Thankfully, we fought Walmart in Queens and won.

Now some good news: I can now officially state that the closed Jembro will become a supermarket with modern amenities.

On January 27, the world marked International Holocaust Remembrance Day. May we never experience that horrific time against any religion again.

May God bless our armed forces, may God bless our disabled veterans, may God bless our NYPD and may God bless our America.
