Re-opening Landia Station May Ease Traffic Jam

The station, which has been closed for more than 20 years, hasn't had a train pass through since 1973. Another company currently exists on the property.
JAA 5th and 6th Grade Girls Basketball
In a battle for first place, and as both teams are getting ready for the playoffs, the Sport Section Miracle defeated Salzman-Ashley Liberty 33-22 in a hard fought and exciting game on Feb. 10 at Cantiague gym.
Victory in Defeat
Like an Ali-Frazier championship fight the Sonics (Marcus-Kleigman) and Jazz battled back and forth in a thoroughly exciting and very exhausting basketball game. Attempting to avenge a wipeout earlier in the season against the Jazz, the third graders learned the power that teamwork and determination can provide. The parents and children got a real treat as the team finally broke out and gelled in what was a thoroughly satisfying game for those playing and watching. Despite only having five players available to play, the undermanned Sonics gave everything they had every minute of the game. Facing a well-coached and talented Jazz team that made clutch shot after clutch shot, the Sonics fighting fatigue and occasional discouragement did not let that affect their effort and performance.
