The Syosset Braves 10-year-old football team recently won the Super Bowl Championship Game against the Bellmore Braves with a final score of 20 to 12. The team was led by Quarterback Jack Fine, while players John Harris (two touchdowns) and Thomas Dolciotto (one touchdown) helped clinch the win. This victory was made possible by the hard work the players put into each practice, led by Lead Coach Craig Fine, and coaches Tom Dolciotto, Joe Gangi, Joe Terino and Ely Izarkson. The team would also like to thank Tina Mourelatos, the “team mom.”
The team worked hard all season, achieving an overall season record of seven wins, three losses.

On a crisp November evening, more than 200 people arrived at Chelsea Mansion at East Norwich for the Syosset-based Long Island Jewish Community Relations Council’s holiday party, entitled “Multicultural Visions, Artists Exploring Identity.” People from all ethnic and religious walks of life mingled under the heated tent viewing art from six local artists, equally diverse, including Manu Kaur Saluja, a Sikh artist from Old Brookville.
Each artist addressed the audience and talked about art and how it reflects their individual identity as a Jew, a Sikh woman, a Latino woman or an African American man. Saluja, a portrait artist, explained to the audience how identity is a very complicated issue. Standing between two portraits of her brother, a cardiologist, one wearing a black turban and one with his long hair cascading down his shoulders, she explained why she chose to paint these two portraits.
