Unemployment is a problem across the nation. Need to find a job? Look no further than the Elmont Chamber of Commerce’s 2nd Annual Job Fair on Saturday, Nov. 3 from 1 to 5 p.m. at Elmont Memorial High School (EMHS).
When I graduated college, initially I was a bit lost in terms of job searching. I did not come across Anton at a job fair, but had I known these events were popular, let alone in my backyard, I would have jumped at the chance to go to attend one while unemployed. If you’re out of work, go to EMHS and hopefully, you’ll find your way.

Speaking for a group of local residents, Santo Cipolla is asking the Sewanhaka Central High School District to revisit a 28-year-old policy that allows one community to attend any of the five district high schools, including Floral Park Memorial High School.
“It was a policy that was created to desegregate South Floral Park and a portion of Floral Park called Jamaica Square,” Cipolla said at a school board meeting last week. “It is our belief that there is not equal access to the schools and violates the equal protection clause under the Fourteenth Amendment.”
