On Saturday, March 15, the Third Annual Tom Hayden Our Lady of Victory (OLV) 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament will take place at the school’s gymnasium. The event is hosted by the OLV School Board and is open to ages 13 and older.
This year’s honorees are George Rettinger and Joe Power, in memoriam. Rettinger was CYO president and a long-time coach. Power, who passed away several years ago, spent many years coaching in the program, often at Rettinger’s side. The funds raised will enhance OLV’s technology program.
“This is a great way to bring together several teams competing in an exciting event for players who love the game while helping the students of OLV School,” stated Chris Coyne, chairperson of the event.
The sponsors of the event are McCarthy’s Public House of Floral Park and the Hance Family Foundation. Two tickets to Billy Joel’s April 18 concert at Madison Square Garden, donated by Novus Prime Properties, will be raffled off, as well as many other prizes.
Space is limited to the first 20 teams to sign up with payment. The cost is $200 per team. Five players per team area allowed. Visit www.olvfp.org for the sign-up forms.

Lights. Camera. Action. These are the words you may hear if you are in Floral Park’s village hall.
For almost two decades Floral Park has been home to Four Village Studio (4VS), a local community television station serving the four-village area.
The community station airs a variety of programs hosted by residents, a community billboard and its own weather station. However, according to Operations Manager James Green, this is not the only goal of the studio.

Senator Jack Martins mentioned education, business and drug use among other topics in a recent interview with the Floral Park Dispatch. He’s currently seeking re-election in November, being challenged by Democrat Adam Haber.
Pointing to what he called “key legislation,” particularly the tax cap legislation passed in 2011 and prescription drug bill he helped foster to enactment, Martins feels New York State is on track to continue fiscal responsibility.
