While parking around LIRR train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town.
“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”

Lt. Col. Dolan was inducted into the U.S. Army Rangers Hall of Fame for his heroism, acts of bravery and exemplary military service. His experiences were recounted in his book Of Their Own Accord.

no need to worry, however, she closed out her college career on the court with another Player of the Year during her senior year.
Neither of those compare to her most memorable moment on the court, according to the senior from Massapequa.
“My best moment was reaching the Nationals last year,” she said about the tournament hosted by Amherst College. “It was great being in the tournament even though we lost in the first round,” she added. The team was defeated by Endicott College 5-2.
