11:40 am – My column for Fanhouse on the tough life of an NHL fan references the NYI and the Lighthouse. Please talk about it there. As Katrina Doell reports on her Lighthouse blog, the Town of Hempstead has scheduled its Lighthouse zoning hearing for Tuesday, Sept. 22 at Hofstra. The date sound familiar? That’s when the Islanders play in Kansas City, an event Charles Wang planned to attend. Just as sports teams can play politics, Murray is playing games. The LDC has approved the date. Let’s see who gets to checkmate. Comments.
