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. Even after checking references and conducting in-depth interviews, working parents are often still anxious about leaving their children with a nanny. But for these families, the situation recently became brighter. Thanks to two LI law firms -- Meltzer, Lippe, Goldstein, and Schlissel, P.C. and Schlissel, Ostrow, Karabatos, Poepplein and Taub, PLLC -- a child protective law known as Kieran's Law has become easier for families to use and will go a long way in ensuring that anyone they hire does not have a criminal record.
We're Celebrating Pride in Port This Saturday!
Don't miss all of the hometown warmth generated by Pride in Port!
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 the spirit of the event, the crew, after researching what crews wore 60 years ago, looked quite nautical with their matching navy sweaters, white pants and caps. 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.
Port Vikings Fall to 2 and 1 Via Thrashing by Mepham Pirates, 40-7
The Port Vikings drew a line on the gridiron, and the Mepham Pirates crossed it... again and again. Unfortunately for Schreiber's Varsity club, this particular line was the goal line. 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.
