Audit: YOM Had No Records Showing Day-Care Workers Were Approved by State
The Yours, Ours, Mine Community Center, Inc. (YOM) in Levittown could not certify that some members of its child-care staff were approved by the state to work with children, according to an audit of the community center, Nassau County Comptroller Howard Weitzman said recently. The audit, which covered the period from January 2003 through June 2005, also revealed lax financial and administrative controls that contributed to the center overcharging the county for day-care services, Comptroller Weitzman said.

The Boys' Varsity Soccer team was looking to keep their undefeated season alive against Lawrence High School. While Lawrence defeated the Bulldogs last year 5-0 in the playoffs, they were surely looking for some revenge. Early in the first half, Matt Brownstone won a goal kick deep in their end and crossed the ball to John Pascale who scored his second goal of the year. With the score still 1-0, late in the second half, Matt Brownstone made a run down the sideline and gave a far cross to Stephan Barea, who headed in his first goal of the year into the back corner of the net. The Bulldogs 2-0 victory put them one point behind first place in their league now. The Dogs look to continue their undefeated season at home against Hewlett.
