Newburger Gives Upbeat Message In State of the Town Address
Town of North Hempstead Supervisor May Newburger gave her annual State of the Town message on Friday and, as usual, it was an upbeat optimistic message. The talk was given, as usual, at a League of Women Voters luncheon meeting at George Washington Manor in Roslyn. But like an elephant in the living room, there is potential bad news that could not be ignored. When she reached page 13 of her 16-page talk, Supervisor Newburger discussed the $28 million judgment against the town in a suit brought by Sumitomo on behalf of its investors. The town is presently awaiting a determination as to whether it can appeal that decision to the Court of Appeals. Supervisor Newburger said that if the town loses its case it will cost taxpayers approximately $25 a year for 15 years, the cost of a $34 million bond issue (see related article on page 3).
Manhasset Grapplers Wrestle For Conference Championship
What makes this team special is that there is a core of wrestlers that are willing to make the sacrifices needed to win. In effect everyone is pulling together to make this the best team that it can be. That's how Coach Guastella explained the team's surprising 5 - 1 record. In fact, the Manhasset wrestlers have pushed their team right to the top of the conference and with one match left in the league the mat men are in first place, just a half game ahead of Jericho (4-0-1).
