Around The Town With Lou

Editor’s Note: Lou Sanders, who has his journalism degree from NYU, and his wife, Grace, founded the Mineola American in 1952, giving the village its first successful newspaper. Lou and Grace have lived in Mineola for 59 years, and his popular column is a signature feature of this paper.

 

Terror is the only word to describe what happened 30 years ago at the Seacrest Diner on Glen Cove Road. Twelve armed  robbers entered the Diner and held some hundred people prisoners. It didn’t take long for the police to catch up to them. They were sentenced to 25 years. This comes to mind with the opening of the beautiful Old Westbury Diner at the same location. The handsome new place is owned by Spiro and Buffy of the Williston Town House. The Town House has about 25 parking places, the Old Westbury Diner has 200 spots. We remember the old Crossroads Diner at Jericho Turnpike and Glen Cove Road, which later became the Seacrest and is now “The Old Westbury.”

Crime up, crime down, reports all over the place. But all agree that the cops in the third precinct do a great job. Guys like Ken Parker, Nick Mosesso, Rob Connolly, Charlie Sellin, Mark Kellerman, Jim Doughterty, Sean Coffee, Mike Komarnicki and the rest. Precinct Commander Sean McCarthy deserves credit.

We also met Mary Matson at the pool. The director, Dan Kopetic said that the pool is having a very busy season. The 90-degree days sure help.

Gitangalie Palombo, an Elmont yoga instructor, will open Fly High Dance and Fitness on the second floor at 111 E. Jericho Tpke. after her plan was approved by the Mineola Village

Board last week. She expects to open by January 2015. Sherwin Williams occupies the main floor.

 

“We want to be a great addition to the community,” she said. “I hope Fly High brings a new flare to the area.”

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.


Sports

The New York Cosmos hosted the Mineola Athletic Association’s Soccer Club recently for its penultimate fall 2014 home game. More than 140 members of the MAA soccer club and their families came out on a chilly October evening to show their love of the game. Twenty-two Mineola boys and girls had the honor of escorting the New York Cosmos and Ottawa Fury players onto the field in the traditional “Walk of Champions.”

 

The Mineola spirit must have inspired the home team, as spectators enjoyed the exciting 2-1 Cosmos victory, with the game-winning goal coming in stoppage time.


As a current member of the Mineola High School Varsity Soccer team, senior, Catherine Cunningham has been dominating the scoring for the Mustangs.  She has 12 goals and two assists in the last seven games. 

 

In her last week of play alone, she amassed six goals in just three games. As a captain for the last two years, Cunningham has been an All-Conference and All-Class player, leading her team to two victories so far this season.
