If interested, contact Kathleen Coletta at YES Community Counseling Center, 516-799-3203. Registration is on a first come, first served basis.

Active Parenting is perhaps the most effective program ever offered in the “how to” of raising children.

With the Nassau County title on the line, junior kicker Zach Kolodny was the most composed player on the field. With time expiring, he booted the game-winning kick to send the Farmingdale Dalers into the Long Island Championship with a 29-26 victory over the Massapequa Chiefs.
“It’s a great feeling,” said Kolodny. “I was confident from the beginning that I would make the kick,” he added. “We practice this every day.”
The game featured a bevy of twists and took on a completely different feel in the fourth quarter than it did for the first three quarters.
