Forum serves as preview for debate on October 10

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.

 

Each candidate was granted five minutes of speaking time, followed by a question and answer session with residents in attendance. 

 

Broadly speaking, Maragos said the county has “held the line” on tax increases and not burdened Nassau County’s homeowners, while Weitzman said the county can not sustain the debt t has accrued during the current administration’s time in office.

Cancer Survivor Gives Back

Written by Lyn Dobrin Thursday, 19 September 2013 00:00

When Narges Rothermel picks up the hotline phone at the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline where she is a volunteer, sometimes the person calling is newly diagnosed and frightened. “When I tell them I’m a 35 year survivor, they don’t hear me. I again say I had breast cancer 35 years ago. There is a pause. And then they say, ‘Really!?’ and I hear hope replacing the fear.” 

 

Narges did not have a hotline to call when she was diagnosed in 1978 when she was 37 years old, with two young children. She says cancer was the last thing she expected. She wasn’t overweight; she wasn’t a smoker. My doctor and nurse and I thought maybe it was backed up milk after I stopped nursing my son. It was breast cancer. “Your life just stops,” she said. “There was a wall in front of me.” 

 

Ulin Brings Harmony To Levittown

Written by Emily Cappiello Wednesday, 18 September 2013 00:00

Allison Ulin always knew that she wanted to be a teacher, but she didn’t always know that she would be starting her own school one day. “Being a teacher has really been a long-time, childhood dream, but after awhile, I realized that I wanted to teach kids the way I wanted to,” she explained. “I wanted to do something that had my own spin.”

 

Ulin has been teaching for years and in a variety of spaces – private school, public school, in the city and on Long Island. Everywhere she went, she said there were aspects of the curriculum that she didn’t always love. Now, at the urging of her friends and family, she has opened Harmony Early Learning, a day care/pre-school/pre-kindergarten center located at 148 Center Lane.

How Run for Rob is raising brain cancer awareness

According to Voices Against Brain Cancer, an organization that raises awareness and money to fight this disease, more than 200,000 people in the United States are annually diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor with the former comprising approximately 40,000 of these diagnoses. Roz Bernstein’s husband, Dr. Robert Bernstein, happened to be one of those numbers when he was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor blastoma back in January 2009. It wound up taking his life 17 months later, when he died in June 2010. By October 2011, his widow kicked off the first Run for Rob 5K Run/Walk in Eisenhower Park. And while the circumstances behind it was horrible, it was something his surviving spouse felt she had to do.

Written by Christy Hinko Thursday, 12 September 2013 00:00

The 2nd Annual Brick 26 Challenge will take place on Saturday, Oct. 19 at Cedar Creek Park in Wantagh, benefitting local veterans through donations to two local service organizations, Boots On The Ground NY, and Semper4Veterans.

Participants will be strapping on their backpacks and carrying up to five bricks over the four-mile obstacle course, and also through a 5K to symbolically honor local veteran heroes and their sacrifices to this country. The bricks are being reserved for a monument being created for Eisenhower Park’s Veterans’ Plaza. For those who wish to participate, they can expect an energy-packed day as veterans suit up and become the drill sergeants at each of the bootcamp stops along the obstacle course. The obstacle course includes wall climbing, tunnel crawling, and hill sprints, and more. Spectators are welcome. Inscribed brick donations are available at www.brick26.org. Visit the website for event registration. In addition, more than 30 volunteers are still needed for manning the routes and helping throughout the day. Veteran motorcycle riders are also wanted for the start and finish lines, with their bikes to help motivate runners. Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
