Higher Learning And The Best Bang For Your Buck

By in large, most parents want their children to attend a four year college.  However, more often than not, affordability becomes a concern.  In fact, for many families, it is a decision they agonize over.  Clearly, parents want what is best for their children, but they also do not want to saddle their children with tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of debt after graduation.  Incredibly, many top colleges also come with an impressive tuition—something most working families are not impressed with.  Again, this expense is a major concern for families across the country, and for this reason, parents will often guide their children toward state universities.  Interestingly enough, this week I saw a link online for Kiplinger’s “Best Value in Public Colleges.” 

 

Here, they list the top 100 best value colleges in the country. New York State has nine colleges on the list, including an outstanding university right here on Long Island: SUNY Stony Brook University which ranked No. 29 on their list. If you plan on sending your child to college, you may want to access the link. Remember Island Trees also has more college information on their College Planning website www.islandtrees.org/iths/college/college.htm. For additional information, please call the high school guidance office.


News

It’s been a long time since Nicole Shaw and Chris McCabe first met—years, in fact—but after taking a chance on each other, the couple realized that they were meant to be with

McCabe recently proposing to Shaw at Old Westbury Gardens’ annual Rise of the Jack O’Lanterns after six years of dating. 

 

McCabe, now an NYPD officer, and Shaw, who works for Mill Neck Services for Deaf Adults, met in middle school and developed their friendship through high school, said Shaw. 

The smell of pine, wood and scented candles greet customers with a sense of home as they cross the wooden threshold to the Amish Craft Barn in Seaford. There they will find dolls, birdhouses, quilts, ceramic turkeys, hand-painted Christmas trees, oak furniture and other seasonal and holiday tchotchkes.

 

Massapequa natives Frank and Pam Hoerauf started The Amish Craft Barn & Gift Shoppe 20 years ago after an inspiring visit to Pennsylvania.


Sports

The Island Trees Cross Country teams continue their improvement in 2014. This year the girls’ team has a record of 8-2 and with their victories over Clarke and Wheatley High Schools, they clinched the Division Championship for the first time in Island Trees High School history.

 

The girls are led by senior Captain Angela Brocco who has been rewriting the girl’s record boards. Brocco set the school record for the Warwick Valley 5000 meter course on Sept. 20. 

This season the Girls’ Varsity Soccer Team at Division Avenue has the rare ability to fill every position on the field with a member of the senior class. All 11 seniors have made contributions to the success of this year’s squad.
