Military Career Exploration Day For Students

On Friday, May 23, Sewanhaka High School, in conjunction with the United States Marine Corps, hosted a Military Career Exploration day. The day provided students enrolled in the Career and Technical Education Program, along with Advanced Placement classes, an opportunity to meet Marines from various career fields, and learn about how the Marine Corps can provide opportunities to students.

Along with ground personnel, the Marines landed five aircraft onto the Sewanhaka football fields for the event. The aircraft included two CH-53 SuperStallion helicopters, two AH-1 Super Cobra helicopters, and one V-22 Osprey, a tilt-rotor aircraft.

Sewanhaka students and community members present at the event were awestruck by the landings.

County sponsors Narcan training at high school

Long Island communities are waging a war against prescription drug abuse and a rampant heroin epidemic. The county launched a free public training program in 2012 to teach ordinary citizens the signs of an overdose and how to reverse its effects using a drug called Narcan.

Garden City High School hosted one of these training events on Oct. 9 as a packed auditorium of parents and community members gathered to learn the skills needed to potentially save a life. Floral Park will host the event in December.

Despite the national media attention about Ebola in recent weeks, there is one virus that is actually affecting Long Islanders, Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), with one of the first cases identified in North Hempstead on Sept. 18 and a recent case on Oct. 15 in Suffolk County, which school officials called for the closing of school, as a health precaution.

Dr. Charles Schleien, chairman of the department of pediatrics at Cohen Children’s Medical Center, said that although the enterovirus is still active, cases are dwindling on Long Island. According to Schleien, approximately 500 cases have been reported this season of enterovirus, at Cohen’s Children Medical Center, with two to six patients being admitted per day.
