They didn’t even belong there.
The Francis Lewis High School girls basketball team had no business in the Public School Athletic League “AA” division championship game on Saturday. After all, they had to beat the 15-time defending city champion Murry Bergtraum to get there.
Sometimes even a fur coat is not enough to allow a dog to cope with icy winter weather.
So on Saturday, the ASPCA and New York Cares joined forces with the NYPD to launch Operation Gimme Shelter, a pilot program with the aim of helping dog owners keep their pets just a little bit warmer in the winter.
In an attempt to identify hazards and improve pedestrian safety, Community Boards 7 in Flushing and 11 in Little Neck have submitted the most dangerous intersections in their areas to the Borough President’s Office.
Each community board has been asked to submit four problematic corridors based on police reports, high traffic volume and the number of turning lanes. In turn, Borough President Melinda Katz will collect the data and send it to the Mayor’s Office.
The completely unnecessary wars over education launched by Mayor de Blasio continued this week, with the specter of dueling rallies in Albany.
One was a protest against de Blasio’s decision to undercut charter schools at every turn. The innovative public schools, though not without problems, are providing wonderful educational opportunities to many students, especially hard-working minorities in poor neighborhoods. But they are anathema to de Blasio’s allies in the teachers union because they are not subject to their rules, and he apparently would rather see those students forced back into substandard traditional schools than be given such a great chance to succeed.
The Department of Environmental Conservation may not try to capture or kill every mute swan in the state after all.
Noting that the majestic white birds are not native to New York and claiming they are disruptive to its natural ecology, the DEC recently had announced a draft plan to get rid of every single one of them by 2025, either by moving or killing them.
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson generated headlines when he told fellow team executives that he expects the Mets to win 90 games in 2014. Alderson’s remark generated understandable guffaws from even optimistic types because the Mets have come closer to losing 90 games in a season the last five years than they have to winning that many.
Even if Sandy knows he’s just blowing the kind of smoke now legal in Colorado, I can’t really fault him. Frankly, I’m surprised he didn’t guarantee a parade down the Canyon of Heroes in late October or early November. The name of the game this time of year is to energize the Mets fan base, which has been understandably lethargic. Having five straight losing seasons, and going into this one with what Metsblog.com is reporting as the seventh-lowest payroll in the majors, will tend to depress ticket sales even among the diehards.
The (GOP-controlled) Arizona Legislature sent a bill to Republican Gov. Jan Brewer that would allow business owners to turn away gay and lesbian customers, as long as they claim to be doing so in the name of “religion.” How long before they put up the “no gays” sign over the water fountains and restrooms?
Fox News contributor Tucker Carlson had this to say: “When you force me to bake you a cake for your gay wedding, that’s fascism.” You heard right, infringing upon a bigot’s right to deny pastries to homosexuals is “fascism.” Amazing. But not surprising.
The homophobic, ignorant, backwoods supporters of bills that promote hate should look up the name Matthew Shepard. In 1998, University of Wyoming student Shepard was kidnapped, tortured and tied to a prairie fence overnight in freezing temperatures. He died five days after he was finally found. His “crime”? Being gay.
Perhaps we should have two Americas: the Democratic States of America, where civil rights apply to everyone, and Teabagistan, where ignorance, bigotry and racism rule the day.
The men’s basketball team at York College will take on Rhode Island College tonight, March 6, in the opening round of the NCAA Division III postseason tournament.
The head of the company that owns the Woodhaven building that partially collapsed last year appeared in Queens Criminal Court last Friday and was ordered to immediately hire an architect and file for a work permit for the corner structure at 78-19 Jamaica Ave.
George Kochabe, the head officer of 78-19 Jamaica LLC, appeared in court after a warrant was issued for his arrest. A judge told him he must retain the architect and file for the work permit before his next court date on April 10 — almost a year to the day after the collapse occurred.
The fight over the future of education in New York City headed up the Thruway Tuesday to Albany, where dueling rallies with some crossover support between them and high-profile speakers brought some heat to the frozen state capital.
Lobbying the state Legislature for his plan to raise taxes on high-income earners to fund universal prekindergarten citywide, Mayor de Blasio held a rally with several members of the City Council in Albany on Tuesday.
The Howard Beach New York Rising Community Planning Committee’s public meeting on Sandy reconstruction has been rescheduled for March 10. The meeting had been planned for last Monday, but the bad weather forced its cancellation.
The meeting will allow for public comment on Gov. Cuomo’s task force’s plan for post-Hurricane Sandy recovery in the neighborhoods of Howard Beach and Hamilton Beach. There will be an open house and presentations will be offered to the general public from 3 to 9 p.m. at Russo’s On The Bay at 162-45 Cross Bay Blvd.
Inside the gymnasium packed tightly with students, teachers and alumni, PS 49 said a heartfelt goodbye to their beloved leader.
