News

The nine-story apartment building at 250 Old Country Road is rising on schedule, according to developers. Lake Success-based Lalezarian Developers is constructing a nine-story, 315-unit complex at the site.

 

Kevin Lalezarian estimated the project is about 20 percent complete.

 

“Our foundation is nearly complete,” Lalezarian said. “Our superstructure is proceeding. That’s the main thing happening right now.”

The Mineola Fire Department is looking to replace its Company Two engine, Truck 168. The truck is 25 years old, consisting of an articulating boom and bucket.

 

A new truck would cost upwards of $1 million, fire reps said.

 

“The current truck has served the village well for many years, but is in need of replacement,” Chief of Department Jeff Clark said.


Sports

The Mineola Hurricanes recently swept the Smithtown Bulls recently pounded the Smithtown Bulls in two games, winning 9-1and 6-1 at Brady Field in Smithtown. In game one, Chris Marotta brought the heat against the Bulls. 

 

Smithtown managed just one hit off of Marotta, who allowed no earned runs, walked two and struck out eight during his five innings of work. The Bulls jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning.

Had college lacrosse burst onto the scene one generation earlier, one local resident would have become a household name within the inner circles.  Settling for three National Championships and a professional contract, however, is not a bad consolation prize.

 

Alex Rosier can now add one more accomplishment to the resume, nearly 20 years after his college career ended.
