  • NEWS: LI Law Firms Make it Easier to Check Nannies' Backgrounds

    One of the most trying aspects of parenthood can be finding a trustworthy child care provider.

  • SPORTS: On the Bay

    Activity on the bay this past weekend (Sept. 30-Oct. 1) included the Orient Trophy Race, the Classic Boat Regatta, the Long Distance Race and the Around Hart Island Cruise. The Orient Trophy Race was won by Gene Petracca, on Yabeaux, a J40. Miss B Haven, MBO #9, Grace Allen, Ralph Heinzerling, and Einar Haukeland, won the Classic Boat Race, and the best-dressed crew award.

In another MBO event, four boats cruised around Hart Island on Saturday, Sept. 30. Results for the Long Distance Race were not available at press time. FULL STORY

The Vikings, who looked to up their record to 3 and 0, were upended, tossed, turned and ultimately shackled, 40-7. After a closed first half, the Mepham Pirates operated on all cylinders in the second half, particularly in their power running game and on their special teams play. Given the home field advantage and an obstinate offensive line, the Pirates ended the Vikings chances at an undefeated season. FULL STORY
