  • NEWS: DiNapoli Plans Run for Nassau County Executive

    When he addressed the Rotary Club of Manhasset a few weeks ago, Assemblyman Tom DiNapoli said that in his re-election this past November, he had his "best numbers ever." He even improved his percentage in traditionally Republican Manhasset. Perhaps heartened by that success, DiNapoli announced on Monday that he plans to seek the Democratic nomination for county executive. As a result of that decision he resigned as head of the Nassau Democratic Party. Larry Aaronson, former mayor of East Hills and former assistant to Town of North Hempstead Supervisor May Newburger, will serve as acting Democratic chairman until an election is held for the position on Jan. 18. It is expected that Mr. Aaronson will then be elected to the position. FULL STORY

  • SPORTS: Fencing at South, Much Hard Work And Success

    This year, the boys and girls fencing teams at Great Neck South entered the season filled with confidence and ambitions. Last year was the first year in which the boys and girls teams separated, due to a growing popularity in the sport. Currently both have junior varsity as well as varsity teams. Jonathan Danoff and Ross Grutman, who are both juniors, are the team captains for boys varsity, and have been on the team since ninth grade. Katherine Harvard, a sophomore, is the captain of the girls team this year. All three students are attending the upcoming Junior Olympics, which they had to qualify for. At the Olympics, Danoff will be using the weapon known as foil, and Grutman and Harvard will be using the epée and sabre weapons. The team is coached by Vladimir Gofman, along with assistant coach Leonid Kvurt, both of whom have been coaching this sport for numerous years. FULL STORY
