County And GLIRC Co-Host Beginning Runners Program

If you’ve been thinking about starting to run as a means to a healthier lifestyle, Nassau County has made it just a little bit easier for you to get started.

On June 25, Nassau County’s “Run Start” program, which is designed especially for those who have been meaning to try running but haven’t been sure how to get started, will kick things off with their first event at the Bethpage High School track. The program is being conducted by the Greater Long Island Running Club under the auspices of Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and the Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation & Museums.

Under the guidance of U.S. Track & Field Association certified coaches Deborah Blair, Ed Melnik and Bob Cook, beginners will be taken through a progressive 10-week program that will teach them how to get started. Coaches will also help train those who attend and teach them about proper nutrition, hydration, and the right footwear and apparel. Sports Injury Prevention specialst Dr. Steven Jonas will also teach how to best avoid an injury.

The Program will be conducted on a low key, no pressure, basis that will make everyone feel comfortable about getting started. The first session of the “Run Start” program will start at Bethpage High School on June 25, at 6:30 p.m. The program will run on ten consecutive Wednesday evenings throughout the Summertime, all leading up to the “Farmingdale Mile” on August 30.

The “Run Start” Program costs $30 to participate and is all inclusive. Signup forms are available online at www.glirc.org.

News

At a recent meeting of the Farmingdale Board of Education, school district superintendent John Lorentz discussed New York State’s proposal to invest $2 billion into districts statewide

through the Smart Schools Bond Act.

 

If approved by voters in the upcoming general elections, the act would allow the state to borrow $2 billion in the form of a capital bond to provide students with access to classroom

technology and high-speed internet connectivity, with the goal of equalizing opportunities for children to learn, adding classroom space, expanding pre-kindergarten programs, replacing classroom trailers with permanent instructional space and installing high-tech security features in schools. 

Over the weekend, thousands of Long Island residents flocked to the Village of Farmingdale for its 26th annual Columbus Day Weekend Fair and Fireman’s carnival. Running from Oct. 9

to 13, the five-day affair featured live music from Farmingdale’s own Electric Dudes and Long Island party band Superbad, a Fire Department barbecue, food vendors, a street fair, fireworks, carnival rides, games for kids of all ages and, of course, the Columbus Day parade.

The 2014 Reilly Cup finals featured the two most successful OTHG teams over the last 9 years. Sal’s Place and Singleton’s have had 11 finals appearances and 7 championships between them during this period of time. They split 2 games during the regular season and Singleton’s became the winner’s bracket representative in the 2014 Cup by beating Sal’s deep in the tournament.

 

Sal’s took the first game 14-7. The game was close until the 8th inning when Sal’s broke it open with some timely hits and taking advantage of a Singleton’s miscue or two.  Sal’s held

Singleton’s to 7 runs with outstanding all-around defense, which was particularly impressive given that some of their significant contributors were visibly fighting through late-season injuries.
