A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Parade
Or how U.S. Senator Charles Schumer arrived too late to meet up with his pre-assigned car and parade coordinator, Richard Arenella commandeered a highly polished Excalibur (along with its startled but game owner) that he fortuitously spotted to drive the Senator? (Mr. Arenella would like this good sport to step forward and identify himself as his name remains a mystery.)
Schools' Computer Network/Internet Policy Revised
In an effort to keep up with modern technology and changing times, the Great Neck Public Schools' board of education proposes to revise its current policy on Computer Network and Internet Acceptable Use for Students and Staff. The primary change is that parents would be required to write and ask for their children to opt out, if they do not want them to have access to the Internet on an individual basis. The current policy, adopted on April 28, 1998, required permission slips from parents in order for their children to be allowed individual Internet access. Access to the Internet on a class basis is permitted for all students under both the original policy and the proposed revision.

GNN Wrestling Finish Successful Season
Wrestling is a very grueling sport. It is very hard to be a good wrestler-- not only do you need strength but you need to master the precise techniques. "Wrestling is on the upswing in Great Neck," says coach Dan Krauz. Krauz has been the coach of wrestling for four years on the district team, and this is his first year as the Great Neck North coach. The Great Neck North team is chock full of hard-working, spirited boys, and now a girl, senior Dellene Kornitsky. She is the first girl to be on the team ever.
