Pasadena Kid Competes In NFL Program

A Plainview youngster was one of 40 athletes from across tthe country who competed in the NFL Punt, Pass & Kick National Finals in Denver during the AFC Divisional Playoff game Jan. 11.

Representing the New York Jets, Sebastian Lippman, 8, launched two punts, passes and kicks as he attempted to score on distance and accuracy. The second-grader from Pasadena Elementary School put on an impressive display, but ultimately came up short in the competition, finishing in fourth place.

But with punts, passes and kicks in excess of more than 100 feet, Lippman represented his team with skill and heart — and he vows to return next year and give it another shot.

It was not a total loss for Lippman, as the youngster enjoyed free tickets to the game between the Denver Broncos and the San Diego Chargers.

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.
