Program: Lecture: “Turning Pennies From Heaven Into a Steady Stream of Abundance.” Maria D’ Andrea is an internationally known author, Budapest-born psychic, clairvoyant and medium. Maria feels that for many, the last few years have been troubling times. The recession has seen a loss of jobs, dwindling retirement funds and an overall prevailing bad financial situation for the high percentage of Americans just struggling to get by. According to Maria, this situation is about to change. In her presentation Maria will present specific techniques that will release the innermost stumbling blocks that will attract all things desired in an individual’s life. She will lead a deep meditation that will release all negativity and pull in positive forces that will result in renewed abundance. She will show those attending how to use an ordinary object – a lemon – to take away the bitterness and make things sweeter all around. Participants will leave understanding how to materialize and experience goals and achieve success and mastery over all financial and personal matters. Bring pennies and Maria will provide the means to turn them into abundance. 8 p.m.

Across Nassau County, residents are reacting with mixed emotions to the Nassau County District Attorney’s recent arrests of more than 100 men for soliciting prostitutes, including three from Hicksville, four from Levittown, eight from Wantagh and East Meadow, and one from Bethpage. The DA’s office not only arrested the men, but made public their names and photographs.
But for as shocking as these very public revelations may be, some local residents seem nonplussed by the whole incident.
