Is Port Washington Prepared for Biochemical Terrorism? And What Can You Do to Protect Yourself?
11th District Legislature Candidates
As the Nassau County Legislator for the 11th District for the past 17 months, Democrat Craig Johnson has already made a mark in a number of areas. He is seeking re-election on Nov. 6, to continue, and expand, progress in restoring the county's fiscal health, cleaning up and protecting the environment, preserving open space, planning "smart growth," and improving local business areas. He's already initiated or worked collaboratively to advance these issues, and he's been successful, but the legislator believes much more needs to be achieved. It could be said that Johnson's overriding vision for a second term is promoting health--in the environment, in the population, in business and in financial matters.
Home-cooking for Homecoming as Vikings Beat Rebels 21-14
In a game that fans thought was to be a blowout, turned out to be a tightly wound contest of open runs, hard nosed tackles, and some very ugly ball-handling on both sides of the line. In the traditional spirit of homecoming weekend, the Vikings upheld its end of the bargain by beating Great Neck South 21-14. There were many standouts as usual for Port including: Scott Udell, Michael Cosolito, Jason Sussman, Ray Ross and Chris Cosolito. The Rebels didn't have much to celebrate except for scoring their first points of the year. No, that's not a typo. Apparently, much of the league has been using the Great Neck South squad as tackling dummies this season, but if Port didn't get their act together in the second half, the Vikings might have been victims of the worst joke all season.
On The Bay
It's hard to believe that the summer sailing season is coming to a close. The weather gods have provided great sailing on Manhasset Bay and Long Island Sound the past few weeks, making it especially difficult to give up wanting to take an afternoon sail. But with the fall season upon us, and colder weather around the corner, sailors are busy hauling their boats and preparing them for winter storage. Soon the bay will be empty of boats with their masts marking the horizon, and a quiet will descend on local waters. Such is the rhythm of the sailing season. In just a few weeks, on Sunday, November 4, the frostbiting season will begin, considered by many the best sailing of all.
