Congratulations Larry Greenstein! You are Port's "Significant Other of the Year"
Corny as it seems, by 23 I had sworn that the next man I would get involved with would be a good friend first. Sounds hopeless, I know, but Larry Greenstein turned out to be the "boy next door" - literally - when I moved into my first apartment in New York City. He was introduced to me in the hall by another neighbor, and then his phone rang and he raced off to get it. It wasn't a good beginning. But as we got to know each other, I discovered that he was sweet, smart and very funny. We had a lot of common interests and could talk for hours without running out of things to say. He qualified as that "best friend" I had been looking for.
BOE Unanimously Adopts $66.5 Million Facilities Bond
In a seven to zero vote, the members of the Port Washington Board of Education adopted a long-term facilities plan, which also includes short-term solutions to the district's classroom space needs for September 2001. The cost of the bond will not exceed $66,539,792, a figure arrived at by Turner Construction Company, the construction manager hired by the district. (A document entitled "Conceptual Cost Estimates for the 2001 Bond Issue" is available for public inspection in the office of the District Clerk.)
Plainview Downs Port, 66-49
Predicting the outcome of a high school basketball game may not be the easiest contest to forecast, but one hardly had to be a swami to see that Port was going to have its hands full during the pre-game warm-up. In the case of the Vikings vs. Hawks last Friday night, one need only look at the Hawks' seven-foot center. Dave Bizgia, and one could smell the sweet odor of victory permeating the Hawks' huddle. It's not so much that their center possessed great poise or athletic skills, but he owned the paint on defense and his offensive presence provoked Port double teams that allowed the Hawks to set up open 12-footers. The 17-point drubbing did have its bright moments, particularly when the Vikings overcame a 14-point deficit to pull it to four, but too many traveling violations and some troubling flagrant fouls put the Vikings in a hole too steep to emerge victoriously.
On the Bay
Under overcast skies, with winds out of the south, seven frostbite teams completed seven races on a damp and cold Sunday afternoon. The results for Sunday, Feb. 4: 1. Pedro Lorson/Mimi Berry (#536), 2. Ted Toombs/David Cornachio (#514), and 3. Fee Metropoulos/Amelia Amon (#121). There was one capsize after the completion of race #4, but with the able RC rushing to the overturned dinghy, skipper and crew were on a crash boat within minutes and immediately whisked to shore. There was no crew race. With two weeks in a row of Sunday sailing, all are hopeful that the weather will continue to cooperate and provide exciting competition for the rest of the season.
Happy With Unanimous Board Approval of $66 Million Bond
