GOVERNOR CUOMO DIRECTS FLAGS TO HALF-STAFF IN HONOR OF PRESIDENT GEORGE H. W. BUSH
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today directed that flags on all state government buildings be flown at half-staff in honor of President George H. W. Bush until December 30th.
President George H. W. Bush was a statesman and patriot who dedicated his life to serving his country. In World War II, he answered the call of duty and became a decorated Navy pilot, and in the decades that followed, he helped to shape the largely peaceful world that we have enjoyed since 1945. His greatest legacy may be the successful end of the Cold War, which occurred on his watch. His leadership was an important factor in the three decades of stability Europe has enjoyed since the fall of the Iron Curtain.
He was also a great unifier of Americans at home, always willing to put country before party. President Bush showed the compassion, decency and good humor that is often lacking in our politics today. He understood that our values, no less than wealth and power, are the source of America's stature in the world
On behalf of the New York Family, we are forever grateful for his service, mourn his passing and will keep his family in our prayers.

Eastport-South Manor didn’t care which division it was, so long as the Sharks walked off the court with a championship.
A year after winning the Suffolk Division I title, No. 2 Eastport-South Manor captured the Division II championship, defeating No. 1 Hauppauge in four sets at Suffolk CCC-Brentwood on Wednesday. Eastport-South Manor won, 34-36, 25-11, 25-19, 25-23, and advances to the Long Island championship at 2 p.m. on Nov. 10, taking on either Bellmore JFK or Jericho at Suffolk CCC-Brentwood.
“Whatever we had to do to win, we were going to do it,” outside hitter Adam Burk said.” Nobody believed in us, but we always believed in ourselves. We wanted to prove everybody wrong.” Eastport-South Manor’s unconventional title defense didn’t come easy.
The Sharks (7-8) had chances to put the first set away, but couldn’t connect on that one, big play against a determined Hauppauge (9-6). It was a frustrating start and ESM knew it needed a quick turnaround if it was going to have a chance. ESM did just that in the second set, jumping out to a five-point lead and finding its rhythm thanks to some strong play at the net.
“We told the guys they had to play in the moment,” coach Bill Kropp said. “They couldn’t think about anything else, just play their game and be confident.”
The Eastport-South Manor Central School District will promote and sustain an educational system which is dedicated to academic excellence and the fulfillment of each individual student's potential.
Through an alliance of educators, parents, students and community, the District will provide a supportive, safe, dynamic learning environment and will strive to graduate students of good character who are intellectually, physically and socially developed, and who are as well prepared as possible for their futures.
