Senator Jack Martins, Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and Legislator Rich Nicolello will be sponsoring a free KidPix photo ID program in Mineola. The program will be held on Saturday, July 26 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mineola Library at 195 Marcellus Rd., Mineola.
The KidPix program gives parents a convenient way to keep their children’s important information on a single, wallet sized ID card. The KidPix card includes the child’s name, physical description, contact information, and photograph.
The child’s fingerprint is also included on the back of the card. In the event that a child goes missing, parents can give the KidPix card to law enforcement as a helpful tool to help return the child home
Nassau County children of all ages can participate in the KidPix program. Photos and fingerprints will be processed on-site and families will be able to take their KidPix cards home right from the event.
Families will be served on a first come, first served basis. No appointments are required.
For more information about the free KidPix photo, call Martins’ office at 516-746-5924, County Executive Mangano’s office at 516-571-3131, or Nicolello’s office at 516-571-6209.

The Mineola Mustangs ended last year’s playoff run in a 34-6 drubbing from the West Hempstead Rams. Mineola was poised for another post season push in 2014 and it showed last week, with a 15-14 victory over the Rams in homecoming weekend.
With a slow start in the first half, Mineola (4-1) put their first points on the board in the second quarter with a field goal by senior Robert Lang. After a touchdown by the Rams (2-3), they headed into halftime 7-3.

Despite two goals from Liam Going, the BU11 Mineola FC squad fell to a relentless and talented Hota Panthers team at Soccer Park in Plainview on Sept. 6. Hota jumped out to a 4-0 lead before Going connected on his first tally, launching a 30-yard free kick that dropped over the Hota keeper. The Mineola striker’s second goal brought his team to within two goals of their opponent, but Hota scored several more goals in the second half in a strong performance. Mineola’s Nicholas Buffolino and Luke Sommese gave solid efforts for Mineola in the season-opener for both teams.
