Students Win Four Medals In Olympiad

Thirty students from the Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District’s John F. Kennedy High School recently participated in the Science Olympiad East Nassau Regional Competition. The Plainview-Old Bethpage High School Science Olympiad team won medals in four events. Nikki Almer and Jordan Lewis earned fourth place in the astronomy category, Elizabeth Varghese and Alma Wang placed fourth in chemistry lab, Mustala Ansari and Brian Lau earned fifth place in experimental design and Susan Huang and Illana Luther won fourth place in Green Generation. The JFK students were among 41 high schools who competed in 22 rigorous-based challenges.

After surviving the “Cold Blooded” episode last week, the eight remaining contestants on Ink Master faced off in a “Flash Challenge” testing their ability to use finesse. The tougher the situation, the more finesse an artist needs to create a masterpiece, and this week was no exception.

Artists were given five hours to tattoo amputees. The residual limb left behind after an amputation can be badly traumatized, unusually shaped and scarred. The artists were challenged to create a phenomenal tattoo on the residual limb to make these amputees love the part of their body they are missing. Although all of the contestants created beautiful designs, Bethpage’s Erik Siuda’s incorporation of the scar tissue and pre-existing tattoo into his design showed the most finesse.

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano recently announced that the annual “1863 Thanksgiving Holiday Celebration” at Old Bethpage Village Restoration will be held on Saturday, Nov. 22 and Sunday, Nov. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Visitors to Old Bethpage Village, the re-created mid-19th Century village, will be able to enjoy the sights and aromas of an old-fashioned Thanksgiving including decorated pumpkin pies baked in a beehive oven and turkey roasted over an open fire. In addition, each afternoon, traditional fiddle music will be played, and children’s stories will be read several times each day.
