Weather Alert  

LIGHT SNOW AND SPOTTY LIGHT FREEZING RAIN POSSIBLE THIS EVENING As temperatures slowly rise this evening, light snow should quickly change over to rain across Long Island, New York City and the suburbs just north and west, and across coastal and southeastern Connecticut, with at least a coating of accumulation, and as much as an inch farther away from the coast. As precipitation mixes with and changes to rain, road temperatures in these areas may still be below freezing even as air temperatures slowly rise to the mid and upper 30s, and a light glaze of ice may be possible on untreated surfaces. So plan on slippery conditions this evening even as temperatures slowly rise.

Smithtown, NY - January 15, 2016 - Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta (R-Fort Salonga, NY) came out to salute Boy Scout Troop 301 newest Eagle Scouts. Over 110 young men from Troop 301 have attained the rank of Eagle, scouting’s highest achievement level.

To meet the requirements for their Eagle Scout award, each candidate completed a community service project to assist a non-profit organization, local school or town park.

  • James Bindert constructed an informational kiosk at the Smithtown Historical Society where visitors can view a map of the Society’s grounds, as well as see a list of upcoming events.
  • Jacob Chandler renovated the entrance to the physical education center at the Nesaquake Middle School in St. James. He painted a mural on the retaining wall, redesigned the flower bed and added a new welcome sign and benches.
  • Cole DeMarco reconstructed the bocce ball court at Hoyt Farm in the Town of Smithtown and built a kiosk with the rules and a scoreboard for each court and replaced the benches.
  • Robert Peters built two display homes for owls at Sweetbriar Nature Center in Smithtown so that could live in a safe environment.

“It is always an honor to attend the Eagle Scout Court of Honor and I am always so impressed by what these young men have accomplished at such a young age. Their commitment and dedication to the scouts speaks volumes about their character, leadership skills and service to the community. They have made their parents, family, scout leaders and fellow scouts, community and government officials very proud and I am sure they will continue to do so,” said Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta.

Legislator Robert Trotta represents the 13th Legislative District, which includes Smithtown, Fort Salonga, Kings Park, San Remo, Nissequogue, Head of the Harbor, and St. James, as well as most of East Northport and parts of Northport and Commack.
