School Board Committee Makes Recommendations for Changes In Mathematics
Part of the March 27 board of education meeting was devoted to a report of the board's curriculum committee, and their findings included some recommended changes with regard to middle school mathematics. In a vote of four to three, the school board adopted the recommendations made by this group, but judging by visitors' comments, not all were in favor of these modifications.
Port Landmark Bay Bootery To Close
Another piece of "Old Port Washington" will disappear sometime this month when Bay Bootery closes its doors for the last time. The classic mom-and-pop operation, the little freestanding shoe store on Shore Road has become a local landmark by catering to Port's feet since the mid-1960's. Owners Emil and Betty Schaefer are retiring to spend more time with their family and three grandchildren.
On The Bay
The weather forecast for Sunday, April 8 - the last day of frostbiting - was mid 40s, overcast skies, with fog and a constant drizzle, and wind out of the NE at 8-10 knots. Most sailors would not be eager to race in dinghies that tend to capsize easily, but this type of weather is to be expected if one is a "frostbiter". Only four teams of sailors were available to compete.
The Port Washington Stingrays (girls U13) had an outstanding 3-1 victory over New Hyde Park. Maya Silbert scored an aggressive goal nine minutes into the game followed up by a world class left-footed kick on goal by Kendra Bigl that sailed past the NHP goalie only to be saved on the goal line by a NHP teammate. Then at exactly nine minutes into the second half Stingray Natalie Brilliant came down the left side of the field, shot and scored making the score 2-0. NHP then scored a lengthy penalty kick.
