Spitters Bill Would Protect Health of Correction Officers
On Aug. 31, the Sheriff Officers Association (ShOA) of Nassau County, the union that represents more than 1,000 correction officers at the Nassau County Correctional Facility in East Meadow, strongly endorsed a pending bill that amends the penal law to protect officers against incidents of intentional contact with bodily fluids by inmates, specifically saliva, spit and sputum.
Cantiague Park Senior Men's Golf League
We had a great crowd again today (45 men), the weather was perfect, but the scores could have been a lot better. Out of 46 golfers we only had six men shoot net par or less. We only had 29 total pars and no birdies. But it was a good day and we enjoyed the weather. We also concluded the match play tournament for this year. Ted Marukawa and Bob Aull played to a tie after 9 holes, so we had to go to the tiebreaker. Ted won the first hole so he is the Match Play Champion.
