Healthy Run Heads To Plainview

Plainview-Old Bethpage Middle School will once again serve as the starting and finishing line of the Heart & Sole 5-Kilometer Run.

The 11th annual event, organized by the Greater Long Island Running Club and sponsored by Central Island Heath Care, will hit the ground running Saturday, July 20 at 8:30 a.m.

The fundraising run, at Central Park Road and Southern Parkway and hosted by Plainview and Syosset hospitals, is being held to raise awareness of diabetes and to help fund scholarly activities and community outreach programs.

Dr. Alan Mensch, senior vice president of medical affairs for Plainview and Syosset hospitals and a long time member of the running club, will serve as the chairman of the event once again. Race management will be handled by the Greater long island Running Club.

The 5K Run features a fast, flat USA Track & Field certified course, awards three deep in five year age groups, outstanding technical shirts for all entrants, ample post race refreshments, generous post-race door prizes — including two flat screen high definition televisions. The 5K will be preceded by a 1/4 mile fun run for youngsters age 12 and under.

Runners can register online at www.glirc.org through 11:59 p.m. on July 18 or call the GLIRC office at 516-349-7646 for hard copy applications or more information. Contact Kathy DiVeglio at 631-242-3089 to volunteer.

News

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.
