The Senior Men’s Golf League of Cantiague Park will hold their first meeting on March 1 at 9 a.m. at the Cantiague Park Clubhouse. If weather permits, a round of golf will be played, with a match play fee of $5.
“We will discuss rule changes, best ball tournament, match play tournament, trophies, handicaps and anything else that you may want to bring up,” said club representative John Bosco.
To help raise awareness and funds for the Red Cross, the New York Islanders will salute American Red Cross Month in March by offering discounted tickets when the team takes on the New Jersey Devils, Sunday, March 4, at 3 p.m. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the disaster relief and lifesaving services of the nonprofit.
398 hardy soles braved the inclement weather on Saturday morning, Feb. 11 at the Old Bethpage Restoration Village, and when the snowflakes had settled 22-year-old Bradley Raxenberg of Woodbury and 31-year-old Shari Klarfeld on Plainview emerged as the top male and female finishers overall. The OBVR 5-Kilometer Run was the kickoff event of the new RunNassau Series of races leading up to the Long island Marathon in May.
Raxenberg crossed the finish line of this not-so-easy course in 17 minutes, 30 seconds, nearly a full minute in front of runner-up John Theissen of Seaford. Klarfeld scored first among the women (beating all but the first three men in the process!) in 19:17.

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto recently took special occasion to present Hockey Pioneer Willie O’Ree, the first black player to ever play in the National Hockey League (NHL), with a proclamation on behalf of the Town of Oyster Bay.
Supervisor Venditto proclaimed Jan. 18 to be ‘Willie O’Ree Day’ in the Town of Oyster Bay, to commemorate the 53rd anniversary of Willie breaking the color barrier in the NHL.
The friends, family, and teammates of Jimmy Myers would like to acknowledge his achievements this fall and wish him the best as he begins his NCAA D1 soccer career.
This past fall, Jimmy was selected as one of the captains of the Hicksville High School State Championship team and earned the following awards from game recognition of the opposing coaches: All State, All Long Island, All County, Conference Player of the Year and Nassau County Finals MVP.
For the fifth consecutive year, pee-wee hockey players from across the globe descended upon Long Island to compete in the New York Islanders annual Lighthouse International Youth Hockey Tournament. Charles B. Wang’s Project Hope charity and the Islanders Children’s Foundation funded this unique international tournament with the goal of creating opportunities for cultural exchange through youth hockey events.
After three days full of games, Finland’s Ilves Islanders skated away with the gold and silver medals in a thrilling back and forth final. They showcased a group of talented young players with the ability and hockey sense of much older teams.
Japan, which traveled the furthest to attend the tournament, showed their European friends and North American hosts that the under-represented hockey nation is growing a crop of young, smooth skaters.
“Home ice advantage” is a common expression used throughout the National Hockey League, and one usually utilized for good reason: as of Jan. 16, only two out of the 30 NHL teams had a winning percentage below .500 on home ice.
For New York Islanders’ forwards Matt Martin and Matt Moulson, playing at the Nassau Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum represents more than just a statistical advantage as the two athletes host a different member of the armed forces and his or her family for each of the team’s 41 home games. Win or lose, regulation, overtime or shootout, Martin and Moulson meet with their guests after games near the Islanders’ locker room – where, uncharacteristically, hockey isn’t the only topic of conversation.
