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.

The Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce presents its third annual Craft and Gift Fair on Sunday, Oct. 5 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library parking lot. Appealing to all ages, admission to the event is free and the first 500 attendees will receive a free t-shirt.
With the theme of “Family Fun Day,” this year the Chamber craft fair will feature Plainview’s country music sensation, Lisa Matassa. She will take the stage at 1 p.m., performing songs from her most recent album “Somebody’s Baby.” With southern sensibilities and a voice to match, Plainview resident Lisa Matassa brings the charm of living under a Nashville skyline to Long Island. Defining “Long Island Country” as “the greatest storytelling of a country song and the edginess of New York rock and roll,” Matassa has seen the island’s interest in her chosen genre expand greatly in just a few short years.

If you’re like most people, your medicine cabinet might be a jumbled assortment of boxes, bottles and tubes.
That innocent bit of disorganization in your medicine cabinet might actually pose a risk if you’re not careful, according to Leonard Langino, a pharmacist with North Shore Long Island Jewish (LIJ) Medical Group, who recently held a lecture on the subject at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library.
