On Sept. 12, 92 years ago, private Louis Capobianco was awarded the Army’s third highest honor – the Silver Star. He was awarded for the bravery he showed on that day, going forward under the barbed wire of enemy lines and single-handedly wiping out a machine gunner that held his company under siege. Despite his wounds, Private Capabianco returned to battle two weeks later and was killed in action after sustaining multiple head wounds. General O’Ryan of the 27th Division personally signed his commendation for the Silver Star.

After 50 years, the second graduating class of North Shore High School of 1960 met recently for a heartfelt, wonderful time. Over 80 classmates out of 204 attended along with their spouses.

Last week at the Glen Cove Senior Center, Nassau County Legislator Diane Yatauro (D-Glen Cove) participated in a press conference held by NY State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to announce the results of an investigation by his office.

Some of these lenders claimed a particular credit card had “no interest” when it actually carried retroactive interest of over 25 percent if not paid in full during a promotional period. The scam severely affected many Nassau County senior citizens who were also unknowingly charged up front for services they never received.
