Local Karate Students Receive Fitness Tips

Students in the Karatatot program at Charles Water Karate & Fitness recently received fitness tips.

 

“We all want to be physically and mentally fit as this enables us to lead a healthy life style,” Water said. “Fitness can be achieved by proper exercises that are part of your daily schedule; this applies to both mental and physical fitness. Fitness is an intricate part of everything we do it is one of the keys to success.”  Karatatot is a combination of exercise and karate in a format specifically designed for children ages 4½ and up.  In a fun filled and nurturing setting your children learn concentration, discipline, respect, focus as well as an understanding of self defense at his or her  own level. These children are learning child safety and stranger training. They are becoming better students at school and better listeners at home.

In an effort to optimize energy usage, while minimizing waste, the Sewanhaka Central High School District has contracted Cenergistic, an energy conservation company based in Dallas, TX, to create a plan for the district’s needs.

 

According to District Superintendent Dr. Ralph Ferrie, the district’s goal is to realize energy savings during times when the district’s buildings are non-occupied and to then budget those savings for student programs.  

Last year Manhasset Park District Commissioner Mark Sauvigne was thinking about running for the office of Manhasset-Lakeville Fire & Water District Commissioner, but he sensed the timing wasn’t right. The district covers Manhasset and parts of Great Neck and north New Hyde Park. Commissioner terms are for three years.

 

“About a year ago I was approached by various members of the Manhasset Lakeville Fire Department, asking me if I would be interested in running for the office of the Fire/ Water

Commissioner,” said Sauvigne. “Although I was honored to be considered, I wasn’t sure the timing was right, so I put the decision off for a year. In the meantime, when the communication tower controversy occurred in October of 2013, I knew it was time to get involved.”

The students of Herricks High School were treated to a “Blast from the Past” as the Herricks High School Class of 1964 during this year’s Homecoming celebration.  Approximately 60 members of the class of 1964 arrived at the high school on homecoming day for a tour of their alma mater.  Most of these alumni had not been back to the high school since graduating 50 years ago.

 

All were impressed with the changes that have taken place and with the friendly demeanor of our high school students. One alumnus became teary eyed when he ventured out into the courtyard.

Despite a disappointing playoff loss against the Wantagh Warriors, Sewanhaka Indians Head Coach George Kasimatis, is pleased with his football team’s season. 

“I’m proud of my team,” he said. “But you are never satisfied unless you win the whole thing.”

 

The Indians faced a big challenge this year, moving up into Conference II left them as the new kids on the block, unfamiliar with the teams they would be going against. 

Kasimatis will have a tall task next year replacing graduating seniors, which made up most of his starting lineup. Kasimatis said most of the offensive line, such as Danny Gianotti, Adrian Gonzalez and Louis Segarra III, and the defensive line, such as Justin Alexandre, Peter LaTorre and Peter Militano are seniors, many of which have started multiple years for him.
