Seminar Helps Veterans Access Benefits

North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and Congressman Steve Israel have teamed up to present a Veterans Casework Seminar on Monday, July 14 at 9 a.m. at the Williston American Legion Post 144 in Williston Park.  

 

“Navigating the vast network of services available to our veterans can be a difficult task,” Bosworth said.  “That is why I am proud to partner with Congressman Israel to host this important seminar which will give veterans a forum to have their questions answered by experts from the Department of Veterans Affairs.” This seminar will provide veterans with information on benefits to which  they are entitled.

Representatives from the Department of Veterans Affairs will be on hand to participate in the discussion and provide information.

 

“We need to make it as easy as possible for veterans, who put their lives on the line for our country, to access the benefits they’ve earned,” Israel said. “That’s why I’m proud to partner with Supervisor

Bosworth to help our local veterans navigate the many services available.”

 

The Williston American Legion Post 144 is located at 730 Willis Ave. in Williston Park. For more information call 311 in the Town of North Hempstead, or 516-869-6311.  If you plan on attending, please

The debate over New York State Common Core standards continues, with students from the Mineola School District showing a mild resistance to the exams.

 

According to the New York State Allies for Public Education, Mineola had some of the lowest numbers, with eight students opting out of the English Language Arts test. However, not a single Mineola student missed the math test. In East Williston, the opt out rates were 75 students in ELA and 60 in math.

Gitangalie Palombo, an Elmont yoga instructor, will open Fly High Dance and Fitness on the second floor at 111 E. Jericho Tpke. after her plan was approved by the Mineola Village

Board last week. She expects to open by January 2015. Sherwin Williams occupies the main floor.

 

“We want to be a great addition to the community,” she said. “I hope Fly High brings a new flare to the area.”


Sports

The New York Cosmos hosted the Mineola Athletic Association’s Soccer Club recently for its penultimate fall 2014 home game. More than 140 members of the MAA soccer club and their families came out on a chilly October evening to show their love of the game. Twenty-two Mineola boys and girls had the honor of escorting the New York Cosmos and Ottawa Fury players onto the field in the traditional “Walk of Champions.”

 

The Mineola spirit must have inspired the home team, as spectators enjoyed the exciting 2-1 Cosmos victory, with the game-winning goal coming in stoppage time.


As a current member of the Mineola High School Varsity Soccer team, senior, Catherine Cunningham has been dominating the scoring for the Mustangs.  She has 12 goals and two assists in the last seven games. 

 

In her last week of play alone, she amassed six goals in just three games. As a captain for the last two years, Cunningham has been an All-Conference and All-Class player, leading her team to two victories so far this season.
