The North Hempstead Town Board voted unanimously at a town board meeting to change the zoning of Second and Third Avenues, between Main Street and Carlton Avenue, from multiple residence district to residence C districting.

On The Bay
Six New Yorkers vied for spots on the United States Olympic Sailing Team, all of them women - Meg Gaillard from Pelham NY/Jamestown, RI; Kathleen Tocke from Buffalo, NY/Newport, RI; Hannah Swett, from New York, NY/Jamestown, RI; Debbie Copozzi, Bayport, NY; Jody Swanson, Buffalo, NY; and Cory Sertl, Rochester, NY. As of Tuesday, February 24th only one qualified for the U.S Olympic Sailing Team, in the "winner takes all" Olympic Trials. Meg Gaillard has gone from series leader to series winner in the Europe Class after crossing the finish line first in both races on Saturday, February 21st at the U.S. Olympic Sailing Team Trials being run from Lauderdale Yacht Club. That performance turned her lock on the lead position into a mathematically unbeatable low score with two races remaining in the planned 16-race event. Gaillard sat out the final two races of the series, even though doing so added 15 points to her score for each race in which she takes a DNS (did not start). Those penalty points got discarded courtesy of the scoring system that allows competitors to drop their two worst finishes.
