Hometown Hero Saves a Life
Most Manhasset residents know John Hinde as Santa Claus. He's the gentleman who greets the children at the Manhasset Post Office every Christmas, has his picture taken with the children and gives them a small gift. John acted as a saint in real life last week and has been receiving plaudits ever since.

On The Bay
Spring appears to have arrived on Manhasset Bay. As gardeners search for evidence of new growth on trees and shrubs, boaters are populating local boatyards, preparing their boats for launch. It is a busy and exciting time by the water, as thoughts turn to the first sail of the season. This year that first sail will be especially sweet after the long and harsh winter we have endured.
