School Board Divided on Holding Community Forums
With the doors of each PW school poised to open the following morning for the start of the 2000-2001 academic year, the board of education met on Tuesday, September 5th, with an ambitious agenda that was to include a work session on resolving the district's facilities problems.

On the Bay
Spank Me, a 44-foot C & C owned and skippered by Bob Limaggio, is a fairly new boat to our area, but in the short time she has been in our bay, she has won some major sailing honors. In the Around Long Island race, Spank Me took all the top honors out of a fleet of 101 starters in the race. She was first in her division, and was the fastest boat in both time on distance and time on time results. PHRF boats are rated two different ways and Spank Me came in first in both ratings.
