Wednesday, 03 July 2013 09:59I was so thrilled and excited to learn from the Herald that one of our own-a Plainview-Old Bethpage JFK High School 1989 graduate, Daniel Werfel-has been appointed as (Acting) Director of the IRS. Not having to pay federal income taxes next April 15 will mean so much to all Plainview and Old Bethpage residents, especially those of us on fixed incomes ! All 25,000 of us will forever be grateful to Mr. Werfel. We understand that our “Dan” will not have the authority to exempt us---his former friends and neighbors-from New York STATE taxes, and that our “Danny” will be unable to enable us to not pay school, county, town, and sales taxes. However, if our beloved “Danny Boy” does a good enough job so that President Obama removes the word “Acting” from his title.

Driving rain and cold temperatures could not keep Long Islanders from coming out to support the first annual DogFest Walk ‘n Roll, a fundraiser for Canine Companions for Independence. Held for the first time at Marjorie Post Park in Massapequa, dogs of all breeds and sizes came with their humans with one goal in mind; to raise funds for CCI.
Massapequa resident and event organizer Yvonne Dagger, past president and now board member, discussed the importance of the event.
