Around The Town With Lou

Editor’s Note: Lou Sanders, who has his journalism degree from NYU, and his wife, Grace, an Adelphi graduate, founded the Mineola American in 1952, giving the village its first successful newspaper. Lou and Grace have lived in Mineola for 59 years, and his popular column is a signature feature of this paper.

Franie is the lead soloist at Corpus Christi Church and Frank is a high school counselor and an advisor to NCAA college-bound student athletes. With them was Troy Gordon, the choir director.
