Plainview runners Steven Weiss, Stacianne Lester, Shari Klarfeld, Rich Diamond and Barry Jerson each won awards at the 23rd annual David Lerner Associates Long Island Police Appreciation 5 Kilometer Run, which was held at Eisenhower Park on June 5.
Weiss took second place honors in the Open Law Enforcement Division, Lester took home the third place award in the women’s 20-24 age group, Klarfeld took home the second place award in the women’s 30-34 age group, Diamond scored second in the 35-39 age group, and Jerson was the second place finisher in the 65-69 age group.
The run was conducted by the Greater Long Island Running Club, under the sponsorship of David Lerner Associates, who donated more than $300,000 over the years to law enforcement officers and their families in time of personal emergency. A big contingent from David Lerner Associates was on hand at the run, to complement big teams from the Nassau Police Running Club and the NYPD Running Club.

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.
