As we gear up for another election season, Long Islanders are invited to cast their votes for another important race, 2013 Savvy Senior. Long Island’s Association of Generational Experts for Seniors (AGES) is now accepting nominations for Long Islanders’ favorite “Savvy Senior” citizens until Saturday, August, 31.
Each senior entered will be considered a candidate for 2013’s Savvy Senior King and Queen, both of whom will be announced and crowned during AGES’ Fourth Annual Savvy Senior Day, which is fittingly taking place just before Grandparents Day on Saturday, September 7 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Holiday Inn in Plainview. All seniors nominated will be publicly recognized, with the King and Queen receiving gift certificates toward professional studio portraits, compliments of Bradford Renaissance Portraits.
“There are so many exceptional seniors living on Long Island who have not only made but are continuing to make tremendous contributions to our lives and the communities we live in,” says Rita Medaglio-Barrera, AGES Chairperson. “The whole concept behind AGES’ Savvy Senior Day is to provide a day in which the many seniors who make up Long Island can deservingly shine among family and friends and can be showered with our great respect, admiration and appreciation for of their accomplishments. We encourage everyone out there to vote for their special senior and to take part in this special, celebratory event.”
In addition to Savvy Senior nominations, AGES is welcoming individual and corporate sponsorships for some of Savvy Senior Day’s entertainment, gifts and raffle prizes. Anyone wishing to sponsor product or services for the event can contact 347-886-2574.

If you have a sweet tooth and want a taste of confectionary perfection, take a drive down Manetto Hill Road. Set far back in a shopping center you will find Sweet Karma Bakery. No matter where you park in the lot, your nose will be greeted by the scent of freshly baked cakes and cookies.

The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) has frustrated commuters for years with it’s ridiculous fares, limited trains and constant problems, especially during the rush hour ride home.
Though the MTA is making an effort to add more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town.
