Talks have been ongoing and a piece of the puzzle is finally falling into place.
It is really hard to dispute the fact that John Hayes is the best director of community theater on Long Island. For the past 40 years he has been a director and for the past 37 years for the Herricks Commuity Players.

Nassau County Attorney John Ciampoli revealed at a press conference on April 26 that he asked District Attorney Kathleen Rice to investigate if all nine Democratic county legislators engaged in criminal activity.
