The wife of a Plainview man traveled all the way from Uganda to Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola to give birth the way she wished.
Chanda Ginsberg, whose Plainview native husband works for the United Nations and is currently posted in Uganda, was determined to have a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). And when the time came, she and her husband chose Winthrop. While researching labor and delivery options, the couple was uncomfortable with the medical providers in Uganda and regional hospitals in East Africa. Her husband’s family lives in Melville with connections to Winthrop; his mother is a nurse practitioner who has worked with Winthrop, and his brother’s children were born at the Hospital as well. She also had her first child there three years ago, when they were back in the U.S. between posts.

Evel Knievel twitched his nose, wiggled his tattooed ear and winked at the Palamino bunny. Too Hot to Trot flipped over and was judged according to the American Rabbit Breeders Standard of Perfection.
The haybarn in the Old Bethpage Village Restoration recently played host to 40 exhibitors with their assortment of bunnies ranging from Dutch Satins, Angoras, English Lop, and the Lionshead at the annual Spring Long Island Rabbit Show put on by the Long Island Rabbit Breeders Association. After viewing these animals, one quickly realizes that not all rabbits are white with pink noses.
