Mogul, Cowles Attend BOE Candidates' Night
Two of the three candidates running for school board this year attended the annual BOE Candidates' Night hosted annually by the League of Women Voters. The two women who are running, Laura Mogul and Nancy Cowles, were present and shared their views and answered any questions posed to them from members of the community. Michael Meehan, while expected by many to attend, did not. He also failed to notify officials as to why he was unable to be there, or to find some way to get word over to Weber Middle School Auditorium explaining his absence.
Camille Corbisiero Is Port News' Mother-of-the-Year
Even though Christine Corbisiero is hard at work finishing up a semester at Cornell University, she took time out of her hectic and busy schedule to write us about her wonderful mother.

So in her own touching words, here is Christine's submission.
On The Bay
The boatyards are busy places these days. Your reporter happened to be in the yard this past weekend and came across two very dedicated sailors who have been restoring a boat for the past seven years. Bob Prokop and Jack Antinori have been working on hull #3 of their Manhasset Bay One Design (MBOD), and will launch her in early June. The MBO's, as the local MBO fleet lovingly calls them, were designed in 1928, when a committee of the Larchmont Yacht Club decided to sponsor a new small class boat for its junior members. Drake Sparkman, of Sparkman and Stephens, asked Olin Stephens, his new associate, to draw up a design for the club and persuaded a boat builder named Buckhout in Poughkeepsie to build the boat.
The roar of "The Port Washington Thunder" was heard in Syosset on Saturday, April 28 when our Boys U11 team defeated Syosset. In an exciting first half dominated by Port Washington, Jackie Nick scored the first and only goal. Just after the half Syosset evened the score with a kick that managed to skitter into the net. Minutes later a "right back at you" kick by Nick Kostallas gave the Thunder a 2-1 lead. He scored again with just minutes left in the game, threading through the Syosset defense for a final score of 3-1.
