Muttontown Looks at Preservation
The March meeting of the Muttontown Village Board was a mixed bag that could be grouped together as zoning issues, the one function the present Nassau County Legislature states is not the provenance of any new village.

Heard on the Bay
Last season was our first year with our new 36' Benetau. On the boat we have a color chart-plotter and radar installed on the cabin roof underneath the dodger. Normally, these pieces of equipment are installed on the helm. We didn't want them on the helm, because when one of us is steering, the other is usually navigating. This way we are not on top of each other, or reaching through the wheel to work the controls of the navigational equipment, interfering with the helmsman.
Coach Tom Robinson Plans Ahead
Oyster Bay Basketball Coach Tom Robinson is getting ready for next year's games. This year's Baymen won their conference and the county championship. They just missed reaching the next level of play, against Suffolk players, but Coach Robinson said, "These kids have nothing to hang their heads about. They were chosen to be third and we came in first in conference and won the county," he added proudly.
