Elementary school students in Plainview wrapped up a home-and-home exchange with the New York Islanders after some players made an appearance on their turf.
Three of the team’s finest pro hockey stars answered questions and signed autographs for more than 150 kids between grades three and five in a Monday morning assembly at Kramer Lane Elementary School on Nov. 25. The visit came two weeks after the students’ chorus serenaded an Islanders home game under music teacher Jonathan Wibben’s direction.

The Concerned Citizens of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Community held their Annual Winter Safety Forum at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library recently, and as per the norm for this passionate civic organization, security and preparedness were indeed the name of the game.
Carol Meschkow, president of the Concerned Citizens, started the group 20 years ago originally as a two-week campaign; however, it soon took on a life of its own and is still going strong today, she said.
