On Nov. 30, parents and residents from the Carle Place community had questions answered and concerns addressed at a sex offender meeting that featured experienced officials in the field from New York State and Nassau County.

After all the counts, recounts, deliberations and court sessions, the 7th Senate District has a new senator. Mineola Mayor Jack Martins was declared the victor over incumbent Craig Johnson in the aftermath of the conundrum that was the 7th Senate District race last Saturday morning.
This past year has been a whirlwind of activity and exciting events for Forgotten Friends of Long Island (FFLI) Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation. With continued support from its donors, members and volunteers, FFLI has been able to expand its mission of rescuing the most disadvantaged animals from local municipal shelters.
Dogs and cats suffering from illness, injury, disability, abuse or neglect, or who continue to be overlooked and are consequently scheduled for euthanasia, are the animals of greatest concern to FFLI. Through the efforts of FFLI and its supporters, the animals in its care receive necessary medical treatment and therapy as well as the love and dignity that many of them have never before experienced. Through its careful and conscientious adoption screening process, FFLI is dedicated to matching each animal to its ideal “forever home.”

As of press time, the recount for the New York State’s 7th Senate District was completed. Mineola Mayor Jack Martins has a 403-vote lead over the incumbent, Sen. Craig Johnson with all the undisputed ballots counted.
There are 879 contested paper ballots awaiting a judge’s review. As noted in editions of Anton Newspapers last week, Board of Elections Democratic Commissioner William Biamonte said that the count could last well into November and that indeed, has turned out to be the case.
However on last Thursday, New York Supreme Court Judge Jonathan Lippman issued an administrative order that the Johnson-Martins race, plus two other state senate races undergoing recounts must be completed by Monday, Dec. 6.
Kenny Albert went from calling games in the seats at Madison Square Garden as a kid, to a sportswriting job at Anton Newspapers in high school, to eventually becoming one of the most recognizable and beloved voices in professional sports.
“I received a tape recorder for my fifth birthday. I started calling games off television, and when I became old enough to take it to Madison Square Garden (MSG) or Shea Stadium, I would call games into the recorder from the stands. The people around me probably thought I was crazy,” said Albert, who grew up in Sands Point and covered sports for Anton’s Port Washington News.

The specific total number of emergency ballots; paper ballots used if a machine is broken throughout the 7th senate district, sits at 131 unscanned.

After 15 years and over 1,000 interviews, Isabel Wilkerson was finally content to allow her book, The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration, to leave home and see the world.
“For those 15 years that I worked on the book, in the back of my mind always, were the actual readers who would be picking up this book and reading it,” said Wilkerson, who is the first black woman to win a Pulitzer Prize in journalism.
