  • News: Schwartz Selected by the American Legion as Co-Grand Marshal of Memorial Day Festivities

    Port Washington's American Legion Post has selected Alexander Schwartz as co-grand marshal of the Memorial Day parade and festivities scheduled for Monday, May 28. Al Schwartz joined the United States Navy in May 1944 and was assigned to basic training in Sampson, New York. After basic training, his first assignment was on a submarine chaser patrolling the East Coast of the United States to protect merchant marine shipping from German U-boats. He was later transferred to duties at Jacksonville, Florida where his unit towed targets used for gunnery practice by the Air Force. From Pearl Harbor, the Colahan traveled to the Philippine Islands, where it supported a number of amphibious landings by shelling the islands, hunting for survivors and removing enemy mines. After World War II, Schwartz was assigned to the USS Comstock, which was stationed at a vessel repair facility in mainland China. In 1944, after four years in the Navy without leave, Schwartz was released two months early in 1949. FULL STORY

  • Sports: On the Bay

    For the past few weeks, each of the yacht clubs on Manhasset Bay, during their time-honored tradition of commissioning, was asked, "Is the club ready to go into commission?" Each club in turn heard a hearty reply, "Yes, the club is ready!" Thus begins another season of sailing. Just the thought of getting out on the water gets the blood flowing a little faster. With schedules a little tighter as we struggle to find time to put the last coat of varnish on the boat, or buy another part that really does need replacing, thoughts - of winning the race that somehow eluded us last season, or of an afternoon sail out to Long Island Sound returning just in time to see another gorgeous sunset over our bay, or day sailing with our young offspring aboard for their first sail - sustain us until the day when the boat is actually launched. It won't be long now when all the boats will be out of their winter confinement, and bobbing contentedly at their mooring, awaiting their owner to skipper them once again to another season of adventures.
