Just wondering what new merit badges will be created.

8~) @Ken.... having been a cub scout, more years ago than I care to remember, I think the onlyRead More criterion for creating new merit badges is imagination. Unfortunately, by the tone of the above thread, any bantering here would only feed into homophobic stereotypes.

There should be more comments on the fact that Bonilla is not on the TOH ballot which is a goodRead More thing. This Boy Scouts thing is a waste of time. Who the hell cares about kids who don't play sports and their parents who have nothing better to do than go camping with kids. It's weird. Thank God I had the common sense at age 9 to quit the Boy Scouts and play sports. Btw, Bobo is entitled to his opinion.

We at Team Dawg speak in schools often about the power to make a difference and the importance ofRead More being an Everyday Hero in our schools and communities. The perfect example of that is the Girl Scouts! Wonderful job by all involved. Keep up the great work! Team Dawg salutes you!

This story is amazing! My father - Joe Sarcona - managed and lead this team to this milestoneRead More victory in 1962. This win certainly put West Hempstead and Long Island on the map and made national headlines as well. I was only 1 month old at the time, but I remember seeing all the press clips; include a congratulatory note from Governor Nelson Rockefeller to my father. When he passed in 2008, Newsday, ran a special obituary article about him that mentioned this Little League World Series victory, as well as the awarding of a Purple Heart for his service in WWII. I wish I knew how this wonderful article came about! Bill Sarcona

West Hempstead baseball was always very competitive due in part to some great players Krines,Read More McDermott ... but the teams were successful due to the selfless leadership of coaches like Irv Nelson, Don Derle, Joe Forzano,John Napoli, Don Kupiec and all the other men who sacrificed their time to develop us as players and individuals. I will always remember them and the great times we had... Mark LaCasse, Jacksonville, Fl lacasse2@comcast.net

So happy to hear Leopold has been reunited with his family. I have 5 cats and would be so upset if IRead More lost any one of them. So nice to hear a happy ending to a story.

Where is the Malverne PD's detailed report on this?! We are being stonewalled again by theRead More secretive Police Dept. Or Village Hall. Or both. How will I know if it is safe to let Mr. Pibbles out unless I have complete details!? You call this reporting? It's bad enough I have to worry about all this new traffic coming into town with all its swanky restaurants and wild valet parking!!

Great news!!! So happy he is back with his family. My kids would be distraught if any of our petsRead More were missing.

As the owner of a lovable pit bull myself, I encourage people to open their minds to this wrongfullyRead More maligned breed. The pit bull is a wonderful dog that is often victimized by bad press caused by irresponsible owners. I hope she finds a forever home soon. Whomever adopts her will not be disappointed.

Rena & Stavros Glynos We met Bill 38 years ago and he was always pleasant and helpful. HeRead More always was passionate in whatever he did. So sad to leave at the prime of his life. He will always be remembered with a smile.

Bill was first to welcome us to the neighborhood when we moved to the house across the street manyRead More years ago. He was first to help us when adversity knocked on our door this year. And all the years in between, Bill was a dear neighbor - kind man with generous smile and a huge heart. We will miss you, Bill. Mike and Olga Bondarenko

The first time I met Bill I had a crush on him. Mary, Bills girfriend at the time had shown meRead More pictures of Bill and I was so excited to meet him. He was such a gentle soul and took my sexual harasment with a grain of salt. He never got mad and we had a good laugh the three of us. Later Bill and Mary were married and I met Bill again and still he was just a great guy with a Happy Outlook on life looking foward to the next time he would go fishing with his pal Patrick, Marys dog. Bill wrote a moving article about Patrick which was published in a fishing magazine. And one did not know untill the end of the article that Patrick was a dog. Bill has certainly left a good impression on everyone that meets him and we will all miss him. Goodbye old friend. Louis Russo
