It's Thursday in Massapequa and we hope one of these days we're hoping to be reintroduced to the sun for more than a short period of time.
It's been a bit of a gloomy week in Massapequa, but it's also been a busy one. Much of the news out of the area has been related to schools and Thursday is no exception.
We also have an interesting seminar and a big playoff game on today's agenda.
