An Alternative Hotel Proposal for Port Washington Waterfront?
Rumors were afloat about a second hotel proposal for Port Washington, so the Port News set about to determine the truth. What Port News encountered was a man with a big dream for development of the waterfront, which may include a hotel as well as other attractions for residents and visitors. Erwin (as he prefers to be called), the owner of Main 415 restaurant, shared with this reporter some of his ideas for developing the area. "We are a destination place," Erwin said, "and we have nothing for people who come here." He hopes to change that.

The game had ended, the opposing team had left, but the Legends lingered on the field.
On the Bay
The sailing community knows that sailing is a sport that can be enjoyed at any age. It is also a great family sport. There was not a better demonstration of this than the recent Manhasset Bay Race Week. Helen Browning, 86, sailed an Ideal 18 with her granddaughter, Laura Browning. They just didn't sail around the course, they beat just about everyone and took home an armful of silver to prove it. They were not the only family group out on the water. Emily, Lynn (mom) and Elizabeth Whipple sailed an Ideal 18 together on Friday with the Women's Racing Clinic (WRC). John Silbersack, co-chair of the MBYC Junior Sailing Program, was out on an MBO with his daughter Catryn. Even Race Committee had family members together - Bill Scaglione and his daughters were helping out Race Committee Chairs, John Barry and Bill Brakman. So if anyone ever doubts that 1. you have to give up sailing at a certain age, or 2. sailing takes too much time away from the family, all you have to do is remember the 2006 Manhasset Bay Race Week!
