American Scene: Boy allowed to play girls field hockey
Question of the Day
SMITHTOWN — An athletics committee on Long Island has ruled that a 13-year-old boy can keep playing field hockey on the girls’ team at Southampton High School.
The ruling is a reversal of fortune for the student, Keeling Pilaro.
Keeling had played on the girls’ team at Southampton High this season. But the committee decided earlier this spring that his skills had become too advanced for him to continue playing on a girls team.
The boy appealed. And after a hearing Tuesday, the committee reversed its earlier decision.
The 4-foot-8, 82-pound student will be allowed to return for one more season with the girls. There is no boys high school field hockey team on Long Island.

Floats likely from Japan found on shoreline
PORT ANGELES — Officials at a national refuge say more than two dozen floats many with Asian writing and logos have been found on a spit of land that juts out off northwest Washington state.
The floats apparently are part of the debris from the March 2011 Japanese tsunami that is washing into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. They were found May 5 in Dungeness Spit during the first beach cleanup of the season.
The piece of land juts into the strait north of Sequim. It is within the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge.
