Hundreds of athletes from all over New York traveled to Hicksville this past weekend for the Special Olympics’ Regional Fall Classic.
The Special Olympics has held a tournament for physically and emotionally disabled athletes at Cantiague Park for several years, but for the first time this year, they partnered with the Nassau County Chapter of AHRC, which had been regularly been holding bocce tournaments at Hicksville Firehouse 3.
The Coalition of Nassau Civic Associations hosted the candidates for county comptroller—incumbent George Maragos and challenger Howard Weitzman—in a town forum at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library last week.

Adventureland, one of Long Island’s longest running amusement parks is launching a special Halloween promotion for teens and adults. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting Oct. 15, “Nightmare on the Midway,” makes it frightening debut from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
The spooky spectacular was created and designed as a horror-filled Halloween experience for older children and adults. But fear not, the more than 50-year-old park will continue its tradition of presenting family friendly Halloween events during the day such as a pumpkin patch, live age-appropriate performers and face-painting.
It’s been 12 years since the attack on the World Trade Center, but no matter how many years have passed, it is a day that Americans will remember forever. To honor the fallen members of the Hicksville community, as well as the first responders who lost their lives trying to rescue civilians, friends and family of those who were lost on that day gathered together with the Hicksville Fire Department to pay tribute. A special tribute was given to George Howard, ex-captain of the Hicksville Fire Department who was with Emergency Company 5, and Terrence Farrell, ex-chief of the department who was also with Citizens Engine Company 3.
With American pride on full display as a large flag hung over the firehouse as well as a sea of American Flags on the lawn to honor the 411 first responders that were lost in the terrorism attack, the event kicked off with a procession by the New York Metro Pipe Band and the Hicksville Color Guard. Nick Brigandi, Honorary Chief of the Hicksville Fire Department, led the pledge of allegiance followed by Erica Fuentes singing the national anthem.
Taylor, owner and founder of Bish Bash Books, says she was looking for a charity to give to, and sought out local moms to see who would be interested in joining her. Longtime pal Del Pozzo, owner of Del Pozzo Foods, and Dean were all interested in doing the event, initially as a way to get in shape.
The sounds of traditional folk music filled the air as the parking lot of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Hicksville transformed into a makeshift Greek village. The Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church has been part of the Hicksville community for over three decades. The church hosts an annual Greek festival that brings together the Greek community from far and wide to celebrate their proud heritage.
The event was held for three days, beginning on Sept. 6. George Pieri, festival chairman, was beaming with pride on the second day of festivities as he oversaw the celebration. “It’s a lot of work, but it’s a lot of fun too,” Pieri explained.
“We are very lucky this year because the weather is beautiful and there is a great turnout.”

The show is the only one of its kind dedicated to raising funds for awareness, testing and research pertaining to prostate cancer. Winthrop University Hospital provided men with free Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) screening blood tests, to help detect and prevent this affliction. The test measures the level of PSA in the blood. A high level indicates that the patient is more likely to develop prostate cancer. In the past, this show has diagnosed over fifty men with high PSA levels, which led these men to seek out medical care that potentially saved their lives.
