Steven Weiss of Plainview scored an age-group win in the Jonas Chiropractic Run Nassau Series Race No. 4 at Eisenhower Park.
The 36-year old Weiss, who runs for the New York Police Department Running Team, finished in 10th place overall in this four-mile event, and took top honors in the 35-39 age group. His time was 26:33, a pace of 6:38 minutes per mile.
Larry Kurtzman of Plainview was one of the co-directors of the series.
The Jonas Chiropractic Run Nassau Series was conducted under the auspices of the Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums, with race management handled by the Greater Long Island Running Club. The series is designed as a lead-up to the RXR Long Island Marathon, and to give participants a taste of four of the outstanding Nassau County Parks—Nickerson Beach, Cedar Creek Park, Old Bethpage Restoration Village and of course, Eisenhower Park.
“We were thrilled to be able to make this series happen again this year,” Co-Director Larry Kurtzman said. “After being forced to postpone the Old Bethpage race because of the February snowstorm, the remainder of the series (including the rescheduled March 30 Old Bethpage Race) went off without any problems. Our congratulations to Race No. 4 local winners Steven Weiss and Bert Jablon, and our thanks to Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and Nassau Parks Commissioner Carnell Foskey for supporting running and fitness in this way.”

Modern libraries can no longer be thought of as cavernous monuments to dusty old books — and nowhere is that more evident than at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library.
Library director Gretchen Browne recently sat down with the Plainview-Old Bethpage Herald to discuss a few of the more significant changes taking place under her watch; the biggest news, she said, was regarding funding for the library’s recently-completed renovation project.

A Plainview attorney is being disbarred after pleading guilty to stealing thousands of dollars from clients, according to the Nassau County district attorney’s office.
Matthew Kogan, 40, repaid the full amount to victims as a result of prosecution for stealing client funds to pay off personal and professional expenses. Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice recently announced that Kogan will no longer be able to practice law after stealing client funds instead of depositing the funds into his escrow account.
