Nassau Has Approved Budget
With Nassau County residents facing a possible 15 percent county tax increase included in the budget passed by the Democratic Majority in the Legislature, which would have amounted to approximately $160 for the average household in the county, County Executive Tom Gulotta vetoed that measure and instituted a 9.1 percent tax increase in its place. The move was approved by the Nassau Interim Finance Authority (NIFA) so that the average household in Nassau County can expect to pay an additional $94.12 in the county portion of their property taxes.
Pearl Harbor 60 Years Later
Friday marked 60 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor. However, what may have made this anniversary different from some of the others in recent memory is that the younger generations now have an idea of what citizens must have been feeling on Dec. 7, 1941.

Tornadoes Strike Indoors for Plainedge Charity
The Mineola U-8 Soccer Tornadoes fled indoors for Thanksgiving weekend in the Kids For Cancer Tournament at Plainedge High School. The boys took some lumps playing in an older division but came away inspired and none the worse for wear behind the tutelage of husband and wife coaching tandem of Dr. Ann and Rich Forte. The four game round robin format was conducted under regular soccer rules in fifteen minutes of running time. The matches were quick and exciting and provided some breathtaking play both offensively and defensively.
