LOCAL AUTHOR/CHEF WITH TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY RELATES PERSONAL STORY OF CHALLENGES, SETBACKS AND TRIUMPHS
January 14, 2014 -- On March 19, 2010, 22 year old Catherine DiGiovanni's car was struck by a drunk driver as she drove to Sea Cliff to visit her parents. The injuries suffered by Ms. DiGiovvani were so severe that doctors gave her only a 5% chance of surviving the next 72 hours. After emergency surgery, she pulled through, but the expectation was that she would never walk or talk again.
On Saturday afternoon Ms. DiGiovanni, who had attended Sea Cliff School as a child and graduated from Lutheran High School in 2005, stood before an audience in the upstairs meeting room at the Sea Cliff Village Library and spoke about her recently published book Mise en Place of Life, and the challenges she has faced in dealing with a traumatic brain injury and other injuries from the 2010 accident.

January 12, 2013--North Shore Schools Superintendent Dr. Edward Melnick will be presenting his initial budget proposal for the 2014-15 school year at this Thursday evening's Board of Education meeting.
Although the spending plan is being developed at a time of potentially significant financial challenges, the fiscal outlook has also brightened considerably over the last several months.
Among the challenges and uncertainties that all Nassau County school districts face are the likely reduction in the state imposed tax levy limit for the 2014-15 budget, and the possibility that legislation repealing the "County Guaranty" will be upheld when it is reviewed by the state's highest court.
