Manhasset Residents Receive Reassessment News
It's the talk of the town all over Nassau County and nowhere more than in Manhasset. The reassessment notices arrived last week and seemed to create more confusion than clarity. In many cases residents thought their reassessment numbers were too high. A number of people were heard to say that they would happily sell their houses to the assessor if he could get that price for them. No one complained about being under-assessed, but some were pleasantly surprised that they did not receive the increase they feared.
Weitzman Keeps a Campaign Promise
When he was running for the office of Nassau County Comptroller, Howard Weitzman visited train stations to talk to commuters every morning. He promised the people he talked to that, if elected, he would be back to hear from them this year. In what was regarded as a major upset, Mr. Weitzman was elected last November and for the past few weeks he has been visiting Long Island Rail Road stations early in the morning to hear from his constituents. The reason for the survey is that the comptroller's office has oversight responsibility for a $25 million contract between Nassau County and the MTA for station maintenance.

On The Bay
The Vineyard Race is a classic American yachting event hosted by the Stamford YC. It is a qualifier for NORT, De Coursey Fales, Irving Pratt, Windigo, Kings Point and Allegra Knapp Mertz Memorial Trophies. The race covers a 239-mile course stretching from Shippan Point, through Plum Gut, past Block Island, and on to the light tower at the entrance to Buzzard's Bay. The return trip takes competitors past Block Island on starboard en route to the finish in Stamford Harbor. The Vineyard Race, begun in 1932, has attracted the finest sailors and fastest boats for nearly 70 years. Two such successful sailors, one from our bay and one who grew up here, Steve Moore and Rich du Moulin, have been asked by Stamford YC to give a talk about their Vineyard Race experiences as a preliminary to the actual event. These two expert sailors, along with additional crew, will then join a stellar group of experienced sailors over Labor Day weekend on the starting line off the Stamford, CT shore.
