Forty-two-year-old Garden City speedster Karen Pompay took first place honors among the masters (age 40 plus) women in lat month’s Sayville Running Company 10-Mile Run to the Blue Point Brewery.
Pompay crossed the finish line in 1 hour, 13 minutes, 13 seconds, more than a full minute in front of front of Christine Hart of Islip Terrace, who was the second place women’s master.
While it wasn’t nearly as warm as it was for the 2012 edition of the run, Mother Nature provided clear skies and a not-too-terrible temperature on that January morning for the 3rd annual running of the Sayville Running Company 10-Mile Run to the Blue Point Brewery. The race’s 1,079 finishers enjoyed a fast, flat 10-mile course from Patchogue through Blue Point and Bayport to Sayville and back followed by one of the best post-race parties around, courtesy of Pete Cotter and his team at the Blue Point Brewery in Patchogue.

It’s a cute little ‘bug.’ What it represents, however, is anything but cute.
An unusual-looking Volkswagen is toodling around Long Island this month. Painted to resemble the Asian longhorned beetle (ALB), the VW Beetle is part of efforts by the US Department of Agriculture to eliminate the pest, which can destroy 70 percent of an area’s tree canopy, according to the agency. Initially, officials held hope for complete eradication from about 23 square miles of the Island designated as infested or at risk by 2016. Instead, this “landcape-altering pest” is spreading.

It was announced at the August Stewart Manor Board of Trustees meeting that the Elmont Memorial Library recently reneged on a deal to place a library drop-box in Stewart Manor Village Hall. The box would have allowed the Village’s elderly residents a more convenient option for returning books. According to the Board, the deal was all but done before the library backed out at the last minute.
“They offered us the world and we got crumbs. Rocks, really,” said Stewart Manor Mayor Gerard Tangredi.
