Bayfront Homeowners Prep for “Rocking” Night in Venice Celebration

first_imgBy Donald WittkowskiLadies and gentlemen, step right up! Sue Hornyak is transforming her Ocean City bayfront home on North Point Road into the “Big Top,” a circus-sized tribute to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey.A few doors down on North Point Road, Suzy Dolaway’s bayfront house will become a giant, disco-themed party featuring the quintessential silver dance ball and lava lamps. Groovy, baby, groovy.On Bay Avenue, the folks at the Ocean City Yacht Club will suddenly find themselves partying at the “Ocean City Rock Club” as part of a rock-and-roll-themed makeover of the typically more sedate historic boathouse.All this revelry is inspired by Ocean City’s Night in Venice, the spectacular annual boat parade that unfolds along the back bays between the Ocean City-Longport Bridge and Tennessee Avenue amid colorfully decorated homes and huge crowds.The 63rd annual edition of Night in Venice is scheduled to get underway Saturday at 6 p.m., led by grand marshal Alfonso Ribeiro, the new host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” and a former star of the 1990s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.”On Saturday night, the picturesque bayfront will come alive with the Night in Venice boat parade, colorfully decorated homes and huge crowds.This year, Night in Venice will boast a “Rockin’ Through the Decades” musical theme. City spokesman Doug Bergen said an estimated 50,000 spectators will be in town to marvel over what is Ocean City’s largest summer event. A fireworks display after the boat parade will cap off the festivities.Members of Sue Hornyak’s family have come from parts of New Jersey and Pennsylvania to her house at 265 North Point Road for what has become a grand, annual celebration featuring over-the-top decorations and themes.Hornyak said her house has won prizes four years in a row for its elaborate decorations, giving her family a virtual Night in Venice dynasty. In 2015, the Hornyak family got decked out in Great Gatsby costumes and followed up last year with a comic book-style Superheroes theme.On Saturday, Hornyak is turning her home into the “Big Top,” as she pays her last respects to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which faded into history this year. There will be clowns, tightrope walkers and cardboard cutouts of circus animals.“I’m going to decorate the outside of the house like a circus,” Hornyak said. “The goal is to make it look like the Big Top. We are saying farewell to Ringling Bros. I enjoyed the circus, and it’s a little sad to hear that Ringling Bros. has ended.”Sue Hornyak, third from left, and members of her family show off some of the circus-themed decorations at their home.Her oldest son, George Hornyak, will play the featured role as the costumed ring master. But this weekend promises to be even bigger for George and his pregnant wife, Lauren. They were planning Friday to announce the gender of their unborn child to the entire family.Sue Hornyak said the gender-reveal party, coupled with the Night in Venice festivities, promises to make the entire weekend particularly special. Night in Venice has been a tradition for her family for 13 years.“We all put a lot of effort into it to make it a fun night,” Hornyak said.Suzy Dolaway, one Hornyak’s neighbors, is also getting ready for Night in Venice, a tradition for her family as well. This year, Dolaway plans to have about 125 friends and family members at her house at 231 North Point Road for a 1970s-style disco party featuring live music.“The theme will be ‘Disco on the Dock,’’’ Dolaway said, noting that the decorations will include a silver disco dance ball hanging over the center deck, lava lamps on the tables and tiny, foil-like fringes.“You can say, ‘Groovy,’” Dolaway said, laughing, about the lava lamps.A few blocks away from North Point Road, members of the Ocean City Yacht Club at 100 Bay Ave. were preparing to convert the 116-year-old boating haven into the “Ocean City Rock Club” to celebrate Night in Venice.Three big bedsheets that have been turned into rock-and-roll-themed banners will be unfurled on the yacht club’s bayside for everyone in the boat parade to see, said Kathryn Doms, who serves as the club’s rear commodore.At the Ocean City Yacht Club, member Faith Camp-O’Donnell, left, and Kathryn Doms, who serves as rear commodore, unfurl an “Ocean City Rock Club” banner that will be on display for the rock-themed Night in Venice celebration.The celebration was scheduled to begin Friday night for what the yacht club calls its annual Junior Night in Venice. It is a flotilla of decorated sailboats, piloted by dozens of children, that is showered with candy thrown from people at lagoon-front homes.“They actually take fishing nets,” Doms explained of how the children catch the candy.On Saturday morning, members of the yacht club will scramble to put the finishing touches on the boathouse to have it fully decorated for Night in Venice, Doms said.“Everyone arrives at 9 a.m. It’s fun to do it at the last minute because everyone works so well together to get it done,” she said. Getting ready with their circus costumes for Night in Venice are Sue Hornyak, left, her son, George, his wife, Lauren, and Tommy Jackson, the son of Hornyak’s niece.last_img read more

The second man then fired a gunshot at the duo as they fled, police said. There were no reported injuries in that case.Then, shortly before 11 p.m. Monday, two masked men armed with a handgun knocked at the back door of a Baldwin home on Fargo Street and forced their way inside when a 29-year-old man answered the door, Nassau police said.The victim struggled with the gunmen, who stole the victim’s wallet before they fled on foot to a dark-colored, four-door sedan that was waiting for them on Seaman Avenue, police said. The getaway car was last seen fleeing northbound on Grand Avenue.The victim, who sustained contusions and abrasions to his head, refused medical attention.The suspects were described as Hispanic men in all three cases.

Saints Ladies, GBTI Tigers & Old Old Fort register wins

first_imgTHE curtain was raised on Wednesday 27th November at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall with exciting matches in all three divisions of the Diamond Mineral Water Indoor Hockey Festival. The Saints ladies were the first to celebrate victory in this year’s festival with a 4-2 victory over Red Wyne in the ExxonMobil ladies competition, while the GBTI GCC Tigers predictably secured an easy 8 – 1 victory over the Spartans. Old Old Fort got the better of Vintage GCC by 5-3 in the lone Lucozade Veterans division match of the evening.  The most entertaining match of the evening however, with the highest quality of hockey on display, remained the clash between YMCA Old Fort and the Pepsi Hikers which ended in a 4-4 deadlock.Saints captain Hilton Chester on the attack against GCC In the Old Old Fort versus Pepsi match, overlapping Old Fort left back and former national, Aderemi Simon, executed a brilliant solo run in the 6th minute to finish with a reverse stick goal to bring the match to life.  The two teams had started tentatively like professional boxers sizing up their opponents, but the pace quickened immediately after Simon’s opening goal.  The skilfull Omar Hopkinson then shocked the Hikers with a second Old-Fort goal seven minutes later to give his side a 2-0 lead.The experienced Hikers were unfazed by their cold start and began to carve inroads into the Old Fort defence which reaped dividends as star nationals, Aroydy Branford and Jamarj Assanah, drew the first half of the game even with a pair of goals, both in the 15th minute.The second half saw the Hikers surge ahead through two early goals by Captain Robert France who outhustled his opponents to pounce on loose rebounds in the circle on both occasions to take the Hikers to a 4-2 lead.  Old Fort, however, would rely on another spark of brilliance from Omar Hopkinson to bring his team back within one when he feinted the Hikers goalkeeper before dragging his flick around to the right and up into the net.Young Old Fort marksman Warren Williams brought the game to a fitting end when he scored the game’s eight field goal four minutes before the end to leave the final score at a well-fought 4-4 draw.A young Saints team suffered an opening defeat to GCC in the other men’s clash of the evening, but the modest 2-1 score showed that Saints has improved to being within striking distance of the country’s top sides.  Two penalty corner goals in the first half by Steven Xavier and Kevin Spencer were enough to give GCC the win as Saints only managed one field goal from Seon Sookhai for the match.In the ExxonMobil ladies competition, three penalty corner goals from Tekeisha Deleon and a field goal from young rising star Claysia Bobb were enough to give Saints an easy win over Red Wyne.  Minsodia Culpepper and Bushani Kaladeen put in good performances for Red Wyne but failed to match Saints.  Former national striker, Tamala Glenn and Culpepper were the goal scorers for Old Fort.  Pre-tournament favourites, the GBTI GCC Tigers, outclassed a youthful Spartans team by 8-1 in the other ExxonMobil ladies match of the evening.With the score at 3-1 for the Tigers at halftime, the tiring Spartans would concede 5 more unanswered goals in the second half to cart off an 8-1 victory.  National midfielder Marzana Fiedtkou was the leading scorer with three goals for the Tigers while Sonia Jardine scored two. Ashley DeGroot, Gabriella Xavier and Tiffany Solomon completed their side of the sheet.  Abosaide Cadogan was the lone goal scorer for the Spartans.The Lucozade veterans division was a highly contested affair as Vintage got off to an early start through Kevin Spencer in the second minute.  Old Old Fort responded in fine fashion, however, and despite the scores being level at 2-2 at halftime, pulled off a 5-3 victory.  The Old Old Fort goals were scored by Jason DeSantos 2, John Abrahams, Adrian Brandt and Dwight Sullivan.  Vintage got their three goals through a Kevin Spencer double and one from Dwayne Scott.  Matches continue all week at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall with the finals set for Sunday evening.last_img read more
