Sitting Down with "Mr. Mineola" John DaVanzo
Born and raised in Mineola, a graduate of Mineola High School's Class of 1939, John DaVanzo never left Mineola because, to him, the village is home. Perhaps that's why DaVanzo is maybe the community's best known citizen and his legacy has come to symbolize the village's rich history.
Sitting Down with Ann Galante
Mineola's first and only woman mayor Ann M. Galante has kept the front cover of the Mineola American from when she won the village election that made her mayor very well preserved in a frame. For Galante, it represents a victory, albeit an unlikely one, which made her serve as the head of the community she has called home since 1969.
Mineola Majors Travel Team Defeats Massapequa
The former Mineola Minors travel baseball team has now moved up to the majors and faced a tough opponent in Massapequa.
