We are writing this letter in support of Mayor Scott Strauss and the New Line Party in the upcoming election for Mayor and Trustees in the Village of Mineola. We feel that the New Line Party, under the leadership and direction of Mayor Strauss continues to keep this village on the right track and will continue to move us in the direction that will allow for fiscal responsibility while maintaining excellent services and a place that we are proud to raise our sons.
We have known both Mayor Strauss and George Durham literally our entire lives. Either at one of the Mineola first response agencies or the ball field, we have come to know both of them as persons that are strongly committed to Mineola. I had the honor of working with Scott in the New York City Police Department and Scott had the hard-earned reputation as a “go to guy” among the members of the Special Operations Division. The Scott Strauss of today has always been one of the most genuine persons we have ever met. Scott is a Mayor we are proud of and hope the residents continue to support him in the upcoming election.
We have also had the opportunity to learn about Dennis Walsh and his philosophy. Although we have seen Dennis at the Village of Mineola meetings and knew of his knowledge and understanding of the issues, we have had the pleasure of meeting and talking with Dennis personally. He shares the same concerns and issues as we do and is committed to improving Mineola and making it the wonderful place it is to raise a family.
We actually think of these men as friends first and then as mayor, trustee and future trustee. We urge all Mineola voters to please consider Mayor Scott Strauss, Trustee George Durham and Dennis Walsh.

Local school districts are reaffirming student hygiene standards in the wake of the non-polio enterovirus (EV-D68) that’s been found in the United States. A strain of the enterovirus was found in Southampton’s middle and high schools, but officials say it was not the virus that has caused the national EV-D68 outbreak.
The enterovirus disproportionately affects infants, children and adolescents who lack immunity, according to the Center for Disease Control. School districts have been notified to follow New York State Health Department guidelines to combat possible infections.

The Mineola Mustangs ended last year’s playoff run in a 34-6 drubbing from the West Hempstead Rams. Mineola was poised for another post season push in 2014 and it showed last week, with a 15-14 victory over the Rams in homecoming weekend.
With a slow start in the first half, Mineola (4-1) put their first points on the board in the second quarter with a field goal by senior Robert Lang. After a touchdown by the Rams (2-3), they headed into halftime 7-3.

Despite two goals from Liam Going, the BU11 Mineola FC squad fell to a relentless and talented Hota Panthers team at Soccer Park in Plainview on Sept. 6. Hota jumped out to a 4-0 lead before Going connected on his first tally, launching a 30-yard free kick that dropped over the Hota keeper. The Mineola striker’s second goal brought his team to within two goals of their opponent, but Hota scored several more goals in the second half in a strong performance. Mineola’s Nicholas Buffolino and Luke Sommese gave solid efforts for Mineola in the season-opener for both teams.
