FLG girls lacrosse was started in 2009 with a great team of young ladies who shared a love for the game. The 2013 team will be the first girl’s team to graduate in the program’s history. As they move into their senior year, FLG girls lacrosse is excited to announce it first FLG players to verbally commit to play college lacrosse and who are looking forward to signing their national letter of intent this November.
Marie Cristoforo, Garden City – Marie is a varsity player for defending state champions Garden City. She is an honor roll student who has dedicated her time to the field, the classroom and to helping others through various community service activities. Marie is one of the hardest working kids on the team and approaches everything with a smile. FLG girls lacrosse is happy to announce that she will be attending Marquette next fall.
Jackie Jahelka, Garden City – Jackie is a two-sport varsity player at Garden City, one of the top programs on Long Island. She is a member of the National Honors Society and has been on the Principal’s Honor Roll for the last three years. She is a very talented player who brings grace and finesse to the field.

FLG is a boys and girls lacrosse organization based out of Massapequa. Founded in 2006 by Bob Jahelka and Mike Winkoff, the organization is comprised of eight boys and eight girls select teams. The organization was formed to enhance the attributes of Long Island children through the fundamentals of lacrosse, while assisting the Long Island Community with various outreach programs. Since athletics is a vital part of children’s lives, FLG believes that participation in sports provides excellent preparation for achievement in school and for later in life. Additionally, the organization provides the young men and women added exposure to college coaches through fall, spring and summer lacrosse.

Seven decades ago in January 1943, 27 young women entered a 30-month war emergency course for New York State Registered Nurse certification at Adelphi College. 70 years later at what is now Adelphi University, the School of Nursing officially became the College of Nursing and Public Health on June 10.
In regard to the changing of the longtime School of Nursing, “it’s very timely,” says Dean Patrick Coonan. “Public health and nursing are becoming more connected. Nursing is moving to other places than just hospitals including the community and the home.”

“The three airports operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PA) collectively represent the busiest airport system in the United States,” said Senator Kemp Hannon (R-Nassau). “The noise generated by all these overflights has increased steadily over time, and it’s incumbent upon the PA to conduct a noise study to ensure that aircraft noise is given proper consideration by airport operators when they determine which runways and approach paths to use.”
Hannon’s legislation, passed unanimously, is Senate bill 3841, which would require the PA to conduct a noise and land use compatibility study as set forth in 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 150. That report would then be submitted to the governors and legislatures of New York and New Jersey, and would require the PA to hold biennial public hearings at which the public would be heard regarding aircraft noise issues.
