I have been very impressed with the fresh ideas Adam Haber has brought to our School Board. He pushed us to refinance our debt, consolidate our bus routes, and renegotiate our broadcast rights with Cablevision. These ideas were all unique to Roslyn, and they started with Adam Haber. I voted to put him on the Board of Education five years ago because he promised he would find new ways to save money, and he delivered. We haven’t cut teachers, we’ve preserved and added programs, and our district has boasted the lowest budgetary increases in Nassau each year he’s been on our Board.
I’ve had some personal contact with Adam Haber, and I’ve found him to be a sincere, caring family man with lots of integrity. He showed real leadership after SuperStorm Sandy, creating food and clothing drives, and personally delivering supplies to the South Shore. Adam is an experienced “second responder” who worked with All Hands Volunteers on disaster response missions in Mississippi (after Hurricane Katrina) and in Haiti (after the big earthquake). That’s why Adam knew to bring them to Long Island after Sandy, where they established projects in Long Beach and Staten Island, restoring more than 200 homes.
Adam Haber has proven his leadership skills, and I am confident he can bring the change we need
in the 7th Senatorial District. His fresh ideas to save money and respond to crises are desperately needed.
Please join me on Nov. 4 in voting for Adam Haber, Democrat for New York State Senate, District 7.

The Mineola Mustangs ended last year’s playoff run in a 34-6 drubbing from the West Hempstead Rams. Mineola was poised for another post season push in 2014 and it showed last week, with a 15-14 victory over the Rams in homecoming weekend.
With a slow start in the first half, Mineola (4-1) put their first points on the board in the second quarter with a field goal by senior Robert Lang. After a touchdown by the Rams (2-3), they headed into halftime 7-3.

Despite two goals from Liam Going, the BU11 Mineola FC squad fell to a relentless and talented Hota Panthers team at Soccer Park in Plainview on Sept. 6. Hota jumped out to a 4-0 lead before Going connected on his first tally, launching a 30-yard free kick that dropped over the Hota keeper. The Mineola striker’s second goal brought his team to within two goals of their opponent, but Hota scored several more goals in the second half in a strong performance. Mineola’s Nicholas Buffolino and Luke Sommese gave solid efforts for Mineola in the season-opener for both teams.
