Suozzi Presents Four-Year Recovery Plan
As required by law, Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi presented his four-year economic plan for Nassau to NIFA (Nassau Interim Financial Authority) on Monday, April 1. That evening he went on Channel 12 to present the plan to the Nassau County Legislature and to the public. Although parts of the plan had been leaked before Monday, Mr. Suozzi saved one important surprise. Senior citizens earning less than $60,000 a year would be exempt from the proposed property tax increase. The tax increase will be 19.4 percent of the county portion of the property tax. It will amount to less than four percent of a resident's total property tax. A chart giving examples of specific increases is published here on page 36.

On the Bay
Frostbiting results have become available for Sunday, March 24. According to Herb Schmidt, Race Committee chair, the wind was blowing 14-16 knots, with gusts reaching the low 20's. By 2:15 p.m., the Race Committee decided to move the racing closer to shore, as it was "too gusty to be on the bay." RC retired to the end of the Manhasset Bay dock, and ran three "no jibe" courses. By the end of the third race, winds were gusting to 26, so racing was canceled for the day. No boats overturned. Results for the day: 1. #536, Pedro Lorson/Mimi Berry, 2. #531, John Browning/Louise Browning, 3. #511, Dana Schnipper/Stephanie Baas. As usual, the competition was tight, with only a one-point difference between first and second place.
