Since the 1990s, Anton Community Newspapers has served as a major sponsor for the Toys For Tots charity campaign. This year, our readers once again came through by dropping off donations of unwrapped and unused toys at our Mineola office dropoff point. Special thanks go out to Kate and Patrick Tracy of Manhasset for getting their friends involved in the project.

Baseball culture boasts nearly two centuries’ worth of players, coaches and fans of America’s greatest pastime.
That inseparable trio was on display Nov. 28 at the Chateau Briand in Carle Place as local icons Bucky Dent, Dom Scala and Ed Randall joined more than 300 attendees in supporting Adelphi University’s athletic programs and in celebrating the game of baseball.
Lauren Greenberg, a senior at Syosset High School, is quite knowledgeable about skin care. Her father is Dr. Stephen Greenberg, a prominent plastic surgeon, so Lauren has been exposed to a wealth of skin care knowledge growing up. When listening to her friends, she quickly realized that there is a void in skin care products for teenagers who either neglect their skin entirely or use products and procedures that are meant for adults and are too harsh for still developing teenage skin.
More than 120 dogs and puppies were rescued from over-crowded municipal shelters in California and Oklahoma and brought to North Shore Animal League America Headquarters in Port Washington. Hopping aboard the inaugural journey of the Mutt-i-grees Express, the dogs received a ticket for a new life, and hopefully, many of them will find homes for the holidays.
It was in the spirit of the season of giving that North Shore Animal League America (NSALA) launched the Mutt-i-grees Express, a humane relocation program that transports animals to a new life. Since 1991, NSALA’s humane relocation efforts have rescued more than 150,000 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens, and the launch of the Mutt-i-grees Express represents the beginning of a new era.
1. Derek Jeter (1995-present) – What more can you say about this slam-dunk future Hall of Famer who is the only player to get 3,000 hits (and counting) wearing pinstripes, led his team to five championships (so far), is a 13-time All-Star, a 5-time Gold Glove and Silver Slugger winner, 1996 AL Rookie of the Year and 2000 World Series MVP?
2. Phil Rizzuto (1941-1956) –The diminutive middle infielder was known for having great hands, having turned 1,217 double-plays, second only to fellow Baseball Hall of Famer Luke Appling. Likewise, his career field average of .968 is second only to the great Lou Boudreau. Considered one of the game’s greatest bunters, the man nicknamed Scooter was the 1950 AL MVP and no less than Ted Williams was quoted as saying that if Rizzuto had played for the Red Sox, they would have won all the games they lost to the Yankees.
