Property Reassessments to Be Mailed To Port Residents (Tentatively) on Aug. 29
Under the new county property assessment plan, residents will likely be seeing either an increase or decrease in the county portion of their tax bill, which amounts to about 20 percent of a total tax bill. For Port taxpayers, they predict an average increase of 17.03 percent, the second highest increase in the county. Sea Cliff is facing a 30 percent increase, Manhasset is third on the list with 16.81 percent. Other areas looking at double digit increases include Great Neck (11.03) and Garden City (11.53). On the other hand, Towns like Amityville, Freeport, Hempstead and Roosevelt will be enjoying double digit decreases.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Al Inserra Retires
The quote on the invitation to Superintendent of Schools Dr. Al Inserra's retirement party was written by Sir John Lubbock. It read, "If we succeed in giving the love of learning, learning itself is sure to follow." For those who have come to know Dr. Inserra over the past seven years during his tenure as superintendent of the Port Washington School District, they know that the quote aptly applies to this dedicated and caring educator.

Port Legends Reach Final Four
Every year PYA chooses the best 11 and 12-year-old baseball talent from the Little League teams and starts to climb the ladder to reach the Little League World Series held in Williamsport, PA. In order to achieve that goal each team must proceed through their local district, then to the sectionals by playing other district winners. If successful, continuing to the state, then the mid-Atlantic region and if fortunate, to the World Series tournament. It is quite a rigorous climb and very few teams get a chance to go that far.
