Removal of Trees Due to Weber School Expansion Leads to Controversy
Four oak trees, each between 80 and 100 years old, and one linden tree between 30 and 40 years old, will most likely be removed from the Port Washington Blvd. side of the Weber Middle School to accommodate the three story expansion of the facility. The site plan, which includes the removal of the trees, has already been approved by the board of education.
Port Beats Long Beach 4-2
In one of the lowest scoring lacrosse games in recent memory, Port and Long Beach slugged it out, up and down the field, but when it was all over Port was on the winning end of a 4-2 victory. Port's offensive dominance was limited to approximately 44 seconds but it was an incredible 44 seconds.
On The Bay
Sailing has been said to be a sport that one can enjoy throughout life's stages. It is also a sport that families can share together. What better way than to spend an afternoon on the water, away from the everyday distractions that prevent families from enjoying each other's company. Children and adolescents are given the opportunity to master skills that increase their confidence, while teenagers, notorious for becoming uncommunicative the minute they enter the teen years, actually talk to their parents. It would be hard not to, considering the close quarters. Frostbiting is a good example of families enjoying the day together. Last Sunday, the winners for the day were Pedro Lorson and Mimi Berry, siblings who grew up sailing on Manhasset Bay and now are starting their own families in Port. Ralf Steitz sailed with his wife, Jamie, and both Cornachio brothers, David and Matt, were out crewing for Ted Toombs and Bob Kirtland. And John Silbersack's regular crew, son Nichols, stepped aside to let his younger sister, Johanna, aged 10, experience the thrill of sailing in an IC dinghy. Nichols, not prone to be left on land, drove one of the crash boats for RC.
