How Much Is Too Much?
There are many issues imbedded in coming up with a "magic number" at which the bond will be approved by the community.

Vikings Bring Down Jets, 50-43
The Vikings out-gunned the East Meadow Jets, 50-43 on Tuesday, the 9th to even Port's conference record at one. The varsity club utilized an effective passing game that kept East Meadow's squad off-balance and unprepared to handle the fast break. When the Jets adjusted, the Vikings kicked the ball out to their three-point guns, Pat Mulqueen (high scorer with 19) and Ray Ross. Strong board play by Phil Guillaume and Angelo Ferrucci gave the Vikings second shot opportunities that they needed to silence a hostile East Meadow crowd. Although the game began much like a dogfight with each team jockeying for position, when Port got its offense rolling East Meadow was left in the dust.
On the Bay
Yachting Key West Race Week 2001 began on Monday, Jan. 15, and will continue until the 19th. The official hand count is complete, and the regatta has a record number of 327 entries. The fleet totals 66 more boats than last year's millennium regatta and is well clear of the 271-boat record fleet from 1999. "To say that we were overwhelmed by the number of entries would be an understatement," said Premiere Racing's Peter Craig. "We've never really come close to the 300-boat limit in past years, which is why we were reluctant to turn boats away. We haven't slammed the door on anybody. The owners were probably as surprised as we were."
