  • NEWS: Nassau County Executive Candidates

    Bruce Bent, the Republican, Conservative and Right-to-Life candidate for Nassau County Executive, has kept his message simple and clear from the day he was nominated. First of all, he says that he is a businessman who has been very successful and that is exactly what Nassau County needs in its present fiscal crisis. He is an outsider who owes nothing to any political leader. When asked about issues other than the economy, he usually says that until the county's finances are straightened out, it is premature to talk about other issues. FULL STORY

  • SPORTS: South Side Levels Port, 45-17

    The Vikings learned a significant and painful physics lesson after their 45-17 drubbing at the hands of South Side: force = mass acceleration. Now I'm sure that every one of Schreiber's seniors and juniors have learned that basic equation by now, but they may not have truly recognized the concept of force until South Side demonstrated it last Saturday. They received a clear definition of mass in terms of the South Side players who seemed to outweigh each Vikings' player by an average of 50 pounds. The acceleration factor was exhibited at the hands of a rushing attack and a defensive blitz that seemed to cause a muff or fumble every time a Viking player touched the ball. Football is always a very "physical" contest, but in this exhibition South Side redefined the meaning by using the Vikings as an example. FULL STORY

  • SPORTS: On The Bay

    The 23rd Manhasset Bay YC Fall Series, a premier big boat sailing regatta, was held over two weekends, Oct. 13-14 and Oct. 20-21. One week before the Series only thirty or so boats had registered, not surprising considering Manhasset Bay's proximity to New York City and the events on Sept. 11. But by the start of the regatta, over 100 boats had decided to leave their worries on shore and compete in the Fall Series. They were rewarded for their decision, as the beautiful fall weather brought good winds on three of the four days of racing. Wind was light only on Saturday, Oct. 20. Sue Miller was Regatta chair, who did a terrific job in putting the event together, quite a challenge considering the lateness of 65 percent of the entrants. Two Principal Race Officers, Sue Miller and Gene Bowler, did an outstanding job on the race course, which this year was only one circle, rather than two that have been used in the past. Next year, the Series will return to the two-circle format. FULL STORY
