Three Cheers For PAL Pony Girls And Boys

The Plainview PAL Pony cheerleaders and football players had the wonderful opportunity of cheering and playing football on the gridiron during half time at the Jets game against the Miami Dolphins on Dec. 1. The smiling faces and cheery spirit of the Plainview girls was the highlight of the day and more than made up for a medicore Jets performance on the gridiron.

The cheerleading squad raises the excitement level at sporting events throughout Plainview and beyond. Their highly skilled routines provide a much-needed energy boost to teams across the sports spectrum with perfectly-timed moves, wide smiles and unbridled enthusiasm.

Besides making a stunning appearance at the recent Jets game, the Plainview PAL Pony cheerleaders also kept it local this year, cheering on the football home team at the Homecoming spectacular in October.

The Plainview-Old Bethpage school district and the entire community is proud of their Pony cheerleaders.

Meanwhile, the Plainview PAL Pony football team enjoyed time on the Jets home turf as well. It was a fun and excited close to the PAL season.

Due to what appears to be a colossal error on the part of the Nassau County Assessor’s office, military veterans and Gold Star families will have to wait for their tax break until next year.

Plainview is one of several local school districts that recently approved resolutions extending an exemption to local veterans, even though budgets and Albany’s tax cap make it a tough choice. Last month, despite concerns about lack of confidence in the validity of eligibility information provided by the county assessor’s office, the Plainview trustees voted to provide a school tax exemption for veterans living in the Plainview-Old Bethpage School District, starting with the 2014-2015 school year.

The Plainview-Old Bethpage JFK High School business teams placed second and third in the Nassau County’s annual Comptroller’s Entrepreneurial Challenge. They competed against two hundred business students from high schools across Nassau County for scholarships and cash awards from various sponsors.  

On April 9, at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building, student teams had 10 minutes to convince a panel of expert judges that their plan for a business in the Plaza of the new Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum is feasible and would be successful.
