The Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District’s John F. Kennedy High School recently announced the following student-athletes as the District’s Athletes of the Month for December 2013: These students personify the School District's emphasis on athletic participation while maintaining focus on academic achievements.
Freshman – Girls’ Basketball
“Krystal Korason led the Girls’ Varsity Basketball team to two wins over the holiday break, while averaging 13 points and nine rebounds per game throughout the month of December. Krystal displays great passion for the game, and has an excellent work ethic on the court and in the classroom.”
— Nick Tomasulo, Head Coach, Girls’ Basketball
Freshman – Wrestling
“Peter is currently ranked as the no. 1 wrestler in the 106 pound weight class on Long Island, and is ranked the sixth best wrestler in New York by NewYorkWrestlingNews.com. He compiled a perfect 15-0 record in the month of December. His performances have been so dominant, that he went 15 consecutive matches before surrendering a single point to an opponent.
He has taken home a first place medal in every tournament that he entered this season, and captured the Most Outstanding Wrestler Award at the annual Hank Paris Memorial Tournament.”
— Joe Weinstein, Head Coach, Wrestling

The kids may be grown. The marriage may have not worked out. Perhaps retirement affords more free time than was anticipated.
Enter The Transition Network, an national social group featuring an active chapter on Long Island that meets regularly at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library.
Judy Forman, Plainview resident and program co-chair, noted that The Transition Network is an organization of women ages 50 and over who are ‘transitioning’ into the next phase of their lives — whether it be retirement, divorce, losing a loved one or so on — and helping them to meet new people while expanding their horizons.

Plainview resident Cila Schlanger was eager to attend a two-hour property tax workshop at the Farmingdale Public Library last week — the problem is, so were many other people.
“I was taken aback once I came here because there was such a line,” she said. “I thought it would be a two-hour workshop, but individuals had to wait to be helped on a first come, first serve basis.”
Residents are trying to save a buck whenever and wherever they can, especially when it comes to property taxes. To try and lend a helping hand, elected officials recently hosted a property tax exemption workshop at the library, drawing residents from across Nassau County.
