Guido Penafiel in Operation Enduring Freedom
As our nation responds to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, members of our community in the Armed Forces are ready to fight terrorism.
A Turban and Beard Do Not a Terrorist Make
In the aftermath of the World Trade Center disaster on Sept 11, the Sikh community on Long Island finds many of its members have been the target of hate crimes, (including racial epithets, obscene gestures and comments), based on the perpetrators' belief that the Sikhs are terrorists. This misguided thinking is likely harbored because Sikh men wear turbans and have beards in accordance with two of several basic tenets of the Sikh religion. Turbans are worn to cover long hair and with respect to God. Sikhs have unshorn hair, beards and moustaches.

Pasta for Peanuts After Victory
On Sunday the Glen Cove Peanuts football team attended a K of C pasta dinner fund raiser as they have for the past three years. As usual there's some hard work to do before dinner and the boys did some job. They defeated Wantagh 30-12 to remain unbeaten at 6-0. Rather than list the accomplishments on the field and at the table, let's do this. On that day, Joseph Anile had 4 sacks, 10 key blocks and 3 bowls of ziti. Gregory Bonanca didn't feel up to playing in the game but did put away two bowls of spaghetti, 2 meatballs and a salad.
