Bayville Road Work Completed
With work on the Nassau County road improvement project on Bayville Road completed in time for the July 4 weekend, Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi held a press conference at the site to talk about the project that has been going on since 1984, although his administration has been involved for only the past two years. The project was designed to create drainage to stop the flooding on the corner of Bayville Avenue as it turns south at The Tides Motel into Lattingtown. During the 1992 Nor'easter, that corner at the entrance to Stehli Beach was flooded cutting off Bayville from the rest of Nassau County.
Undefeated Seventh Grade Girls Win CYO Softball Championship
A game-winning, bases-loaded single by Maria Moreno in the bottom of the 7th inning delivered the Nassau Suffolk CYO Softball Championship to the 7th grade Bayhawks. The team also finished the season undefeated with a perfect 12-0 record outscoring their opponents 165-22. The Bayhawks shut out their opponents five times and tossed two one-hit games and four no-hitters including one perfect game.
Celebrating the Fourth of July to many automatically entails a local morning parade and later in the day sharing a barbecue with family and friends. For those with boats the barbecue usually takes place on the boat, which was apparent if one looked across Oyster Bay Harbor this year. There were small raft-ups all over, especially in front of the Dolan's house, near the southern area of Oyster Bay Cove, and on the northwest side of Centre Island. If one took a close look at the boat names they would notice many were from neighboring towns, states, and a few from far away countries. Over the year's spending Fourth of July in Oyster Bay Harbor has grown into a splendid tradition for people from all over.
