Nassau County Legislator Judy Jacobs was an invited guest at Parkway School in Plainview to Honor Wounded Warriors on September 10. The children from grades K through 4th grade were all given small American flags, which they placed in the ground to honor all of the men an women serving this country.
On hand to honor the wounded warriors were members of various veteran groups, the Plainview Fire Department and the Second Precinct. Special guest Chris Levi, who was devastatingly injured during his tour of duty following the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, spoke to the children about why it is important to care for one another. Levi is now enrolled at LIU Post and is working toward his degree.
Jacobs said seeing the children act so respectfully toward Levi and other wounded warriors nearly brought her to tears.
“This was one of the most moving days I have ever participated in,” she said. “My praise to Principal Ronelle Hershkowitz for bringing everyone together for a few minutes to remember and reflect.”

When it comes to food, New York is known for three things; pizza, deli sandwiches and bagels. Some of the best bagels are right here on Long Island. Plainview to be exact.
“When I was in eighth grade, I took a job at the local bagel store next to the high school,” said Steve Cohen, owner of Town Bagel in Plainview. “I still have that same job today, 36 years later.”

It’s hard to imagine that it’s Thanksgiving already. Is it me, or did we just celebrate? Halloween wasn’t even upon us and the stores were stocked with Thanksgiving and Christmas items. We say to ourselves, “each year, it comes earlier and earlier.” While some prepare to cook and figure out where to seat relatives to avoid arguments, others plan to dine out. To many of us, Thanksgiving means shopping on Black Friday. But for the few and far between who look forward to catching the latest film from the array released exclusively for the holiday weekend, the time has come to relish relaxation. Sit back and enjoy the weekend at the movies, while the deliciousness of turkey and stuffing is probably still digesting in your tummy.
The following movies opened on Nov. 26:
The Penguins of Madagascar (PG–92 mins)
The Penguins of Madagascar finally have their own movie. If you’re familiar with the previous Madagascar films, featuring the zoo animals and their adventures, then you already know the funny and lovable spy penguins. Packed with animated fun for the whole family, Skipper, Kowalksi, Rico and Private begin a journey as undercover agents to help stop the notorious villain, Dr. Octavious. New and returning voices include Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Tom McGrath, Christopher Knight, Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and many more.
