Stop & Shop Supermarket Opens With Much Fanfare
Finally, after countless meetings, planning sessions, a long environmental cleanup, removal of those unsightly oil tanks and a few lawsuits, Port Washington North Mayor Tom Pellegrino officially opened the Stop & Shop Supermarket, located at 65 Shore Road, the site of the former Lewis Oil Co. To make the ceremony unique, the mayor cut a ribbon that was actually a ten-foot long cash register receipt at the ceremony held last week.

On The Bay
Ask any sailor to explain one of the reasons they love to sail, and the reply will usually have to do with the challenge of nature, the feel of salt and wind on their face, or the exhilaration of being out on the water on a beautiful sunny day. There are probably as many answers as there are sailors. But many would agree that one thing that makes sailing so very special is that it is a family sport. Unlike some other leisure-time activities, a sailor can take his or her family along for the ride. Last Sunday, March 28 was a great example of families out on the water together. John Silbersack and his daughter, Catryn, were out with the frostbiters in IC Dinghy #007, and they posted a third place for the day. John's other daughter, Johanna, 12 years old, was on Kraus' Kastle, recoding the scores as each boat crossed the finish line. Not only did she do a fantastic job, she embellished her scorekeeping with artistic flourishes that turned a rather mundane score sheet into a rather attractive record. Thanks to Johanna for her excellent help. With whitecaps on Manhasset Bay, the RC set a "no jibe" course, and did not run a crew race. The partially sunny day brought temperatures in the low 50s with the water temperature registering a cold 40(. The Race Committee completed seven races. Results for the day: 1. #514, Ted Toombs/Mark Cornachio, 2. #121, Philip "Fee" Mitropolous/ Amelia Amon, and 3. #007, John Silbersack/Catryn Silbersack.
Girls Lacrosse Primed For New Season
The snow has finally melted; the birds are beginning to chirp once again and it is finally time for spring. With the spring season comes a brand new year for the Girls Lacrosse team. After a tremendous performance last year, in which they made it to the playoffs and came just short of beating powerhouse Garden City, the girls are looking forward to perhaps going even further. This year, the girls have started out with a respectable 2-2 record and are looking forward to as good a season as they had last year, maybe even better.
