Legislator Nicolello Set for Another Term
Now that the excitement of the November elections has subsided and new Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi has begun to settle in to his new role, the responsibility of fixing the county's fiscal dilemma has fallen on the shoulders of Suozzi and 19 county legislators. One of those legislators is Republican Rich Nicolello, who represents the 19th legislative district. Nicolello is ready for the challenge. His goal is to help the county avert a takeover by the Nassau Interim Finance Authority (NIFA), a state appointed board that oversees the county's finances. It is a simple goal, but to accomplish it will not be so simple.
Corpus Christi Holds Basketball Tournament
Corpus Christi held its 2nd annual holiday tournament over the Christmas break. It was an exciting week of basketball that culminated with three thrilling championship games this past Saturday. The first game saw cross-town rivals Corpus Christi and St. Aidan's square off in the 6th grade "C" Division. St. Aidans received a bye in qualifying for the finals (due to its 5-0 record), while Corpus Christi, entering the tournament, was a much improved 4-1 under coach Mike Fragiacomo. Corpus Christi defeated Our Lady of Hope to get into the championship, which proved to be a seesaw game with one of the highlights coming at the end of the first quarter when Kyle Cribbin hit a running one-handed shot as she was fouled. He stood alone on the court as he completed the three-point play. St. Aidans proved to be too much though as the well coached team under Chris Savigne held on for a 29-25 win.
