The cross-examination of the star prosecution witness in the federal corruption trial of former Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, his wife Linda, and former Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto continued on Tuesday.

Restaurant owner Harendra Singh was cross-examined by Linda Mangano’s attorney. Linda Magano is charged with accepting a no-show job that paid $400,000 dollars at one of Singh’s restaurants.

However, Singh admitted on the stand that he did not know how much work she did when presented with e-mails from his restaurant manager.

There would even be a $1 surcharge for a bucket of balls at the driving range.

The nation's oldest continuously owned restaurant is changing hands. Claudio’s Restaurant in Greenport, Long Island, officially sold after being in the Claudio Family for more than 140 years. The Claudios announced the sale in a Facebook post.

The Family owned and operated the restaurant since it opened in 1870. In that time it became a destination for tourists, vacationers and locals in Greenport.

The restaurant almost sold in 2015, but the sale fell through.
