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.

Krystal Korason

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.”

Peter Pappas  

Freshman – Wrestling

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.

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.
