2013 Women’s Roll of Honor

Cardinal, Endrezzi and Spankos recognized

Coinciding with Women’s History Month, North Hempstead Town Supervisor Jon Kaiman and Town Clerk Leslie Gross announced the honorees for the 2013 Women’s Roll of Honor, which will pay tribute to the late May Newburger, former North Hempstead Supervisor and founder of the annual event.

Event chairperson Gross has chosen the theme for this year’s breakfast, which will recognize North Hempstead’s women “Trail Blazers.”

This year’s Women’s Roll of Honor Breakfast will take place on Thursday, March 21 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Clubhouse at Harbor Links in Port Washington. No reservation is necessary and admission is free.

News

The smell of pine, wood and scented candles greet customers with a sense of home as they cross the wooden threshold to the Amish Craft Barn in Seaford. There they will find dolls, birdhouses, quilts, ceramic turkeys, hand-painted Christmas trees, oak furniture and other seasonal and holiday tchotchkes.

 

Massapequa natives Frank and Pam Hoerauf started The Amish Craft Barn & Gift Shoppe 20 years ago after an inspiring visit to Pennsylvania.

Holidays increase daily congestion 

While parking around LIRR train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town. 

 

“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”


Sports

The Island Trees Cross Country teams continue their improvement in 2014. This year the girls’ team has a record of 8-2 and with their victories over Clarke and Wheatley High Schools, they clinched the Division Championship for the first time in Island Trees High School history.

 

The girls are led by senior Captain Angela Brocco who has been rewriting the girl’s record boards. Brocco set the school record for the Warwick Valley 5000 meter course on Sept. 20. 

This season the Girls’ Varsity Soccer Team at Division Avenue has the rare ability to fill every position on the field with a member of the senior class. All 11 seniors have made contributions to the success of this year’s squad.
