Simplifying the Numbers
The Board of Education, Central Administration and Citizens' Advisory Committee on School Finance are currently reviewing a budget proposal that falls between $66,431,925 and $67,904,325 for the 2004-05 school year. Respectively, these numbers represent a 5.87 percent or 8.22 percent budget-to-budget increase. After completing comprehensive meetings with the community, the board will finalize the budget prior to the April 15 budget hearing.

On The Bay
Manhasset Bay is open for business. And that made many sailors and Race Committee members happy last Sunday afternoon, March 7. After a hiatus of about two months - since the New Year's Regatta to be exact - the bay has been frozen. Rather than investing in ice boats, our frostbiters waited patiently for this day to come. Sunday dawned bright and sunny, not quite as warm as the unusual spring weather during the week, but no one was complaining. The wind proved to be somewhat of a problem, as it was so light that RC considered canceling the entire day. But the sailors had waited too long, and were anxious to get out sailing, so out went the RC to set up the triangular course. Wind held for three races and a crew race, at which time racing was cancelled because the boats were becalmed. Not the best return to frostbiting, but there is always next week, unless we get an arctic cold front that re-freezes the bay, which is highly unlikely. Top on the leader board for Sunday, March 7: 1. #511, Stephanie Baas/Dana Schnipper, 2. #121, Philip "Fee" Mitropolous/Amelia Amon, and 3. #707, Bob Kirtland/Mark Carnachio.
