No Smoke 19 Holds First Roundtable
On Aug. 25, No Smoke 19, a new community health advocacy group aimed at getting Nassau County to raise the legal age to buy tobacco products from 18 to 19, held its first open public forum. East Meadow resident Pat Maher, founder of No Smoke 19 and the Democratic candidate for Nassau County Legislative District 13, was disappointed in the recent votes to table the legislation, and acted as moderator of the forum to discuss strategy. Currently, the Nassau County Legislature Health Committee needs one more 'yes' vote to bring this before the county legislature.
Cantiague Park Senior Men's Golf League
It was another great day for golf, low humidity, low temperatures and a slight, cool breeze. (Two tournaments in a row.) The scores were pretty good too. We had 38 golfers and we totaled 55 pars. Four each by Steve Thompson, Pete Guerra, Jim Green, Jerry Skaee and Frank Larke. But best of all was 8 pars by Dave Malle. He pared all the holes except the eighth, which he bogied. He shot a gross score of 31 (one over par for the course) and he won overall low with a net score of 25. Two other men (Frank Larke and Kent Schreiber) also had a net score of 25 but Dave pared the first hole and they did not, so Dave wins the trophy. Not to be forgotten is Pete Guerra. He beat John Wengler in the final round of the match play tournament, 4 to 1.
