Deepdale Golf Club Will Remain a Private Club
The attempted takeover of the Deepdale Golf Club by the Village of North Hills under the principle of eminent domain has been denied. It was ended with the stroke of a pen when Governor George Pataki signed a bill preventing the village takeover of the club for the village's private use. Senator Michael Balboni (R-East Williston) sponsored the legislation that would prohibit municipalities within the Town of North Hempstead from seizing private recreational facilities in order to use the facility for the same purpose as the private owner.

On the Bay
The sailing community knows that sailing is a sport that can be enjoyed at any age. It is also a great family sport. There was not a better demonstration of this than the recent Manhasset Bay Race Week. Helen Browning, 86, sailed an Ideal 18 with her granddaughter, Laura Browning. They just didn't sail around the course, they beat just about everyone and took home an armful of silver to prove it. They were not the only family group out on the water. Emily, Lynn (mom) and Elizabeth Whipple sailed an Ideal 18 together on Friday with the Women's Racing Clinic (WRC). John Silbersack, co-chair of the MBYC Junior Sailing Program, was out on an MBO with his daughter Catryn. Even Race Committee had family members together - Bill Scaglione and his daughters were helping out Race Committee Chairs, John Barry and Bill Brakman. So if anyone ever doubts that 1. you have to give up sailing at a certain age, or 2. sailing takes too much time away from the family, all you have to do is remember the 2006 Manhasset Bay Race Week!
