Democrats Present Election Petitions
Assemblyman Tom DiNapoli, candidate for Nassau County Executive, and the county Democratic ticket officially kicked off their campaign on Thursday with the filing of more than 14,000 Democratic signatures.
Fields of Dreams Coming True
"This is the way government is supposed to work," said State Senator Michael Balboni, as he stood with other government officials, educators and civic leaders at Bar Beach, the North Hempstead Town Park on Hempstead Harbor. He and Assemblyman Tom DiNapoli were announcing that state funds have been appropriated to build new athletic fields at Hempstead Harbor County Park, adjacent to Bar Beach. Assemblyman DiNapoli also announced a proposed agreement between the town and Nassau County regarding the management, operation, maintenance and oversight of Hempstead Harbor County Park by the Town of North Hempstead. The properties are currently separated by fencing and independently managed and staffed. Bar Beach is heavily trafficked while Hempstead Harbor Park is underutilized, partly due to the county's financial problems. These have led to poor maintenance and staffing. As a result of the new arrangement, the county will save approximately $156,000 in annual operational and maintenance expenses.

The team earned this placement after winning five division championships and were matched up in this elite division against the best clubs throughout Long Island. From the New Hyde Park season opener to the end of season contests against Stonybrook, Northport, and Babylon, opposing teams lined up with squads consisting of state, select, and Olympic development players who thought they would burn our Bullets.
