The Plainview-Old Bethpage Board of Education recently reflected on the passing of former Superintendent of Schools Louis Ferrara during a school board meeting last week on Monday. Ferrara, veteran of the US Army who served as Superintendent in the 1980s, died two weeks ago on June 12.
Board of Education Vice President Ginger Lieberman remembered Ferrara as “a wonderful person,” and the school district posted a memorial letter on his tenure as superintendent by PCT President Morty Rosenfeld, stating: “Since I received the news, I’ve had a flood of memories, most of them of adversarial encounters with him, me the new union president, Lou the up-from-the-ranks superintendent who seemingly knew every detail of the operation of the district.”
Ferrara was a beloved husband of RoseMary, loving father of Anne Ferrara Kurzman, Louis Ferrara and Rosemary & Lee Mc Allister, dear brother of Harry, and cherished grandfather of Colleen, Katelyn, Matthew, Christie and Jay. He was buried at Holy Rood Cemetery.

It’s hard to imagine that it’s Thanksgiving already. Is it me, or did we just celebrate? Halloween wasn’t even upon us and the stores were stocked with Thanksgiving and Christmas items. We say to ourselves, “each year, it comes earlier and earlier.” While some prepare to cook and figure out where to seat relatives to avoid arguments, others plan to dine out. To many of us, Thanksgiving means shopping on Black Friday. But for the few and far between who look forward to catching the latest film from the array released exclusively for the holiday weekend, the time has come to relish relaxation. Sit back and enjoy the weekend at the movies, while the deliciousness of turkey and stuffing is probably still digesting in your tummy.
The following movies opened on Nov. 26:

If you have a sweet tooth and want a taste of confectionary perfection, take a drive down Manetto Hill Road. Set far back in a shopping center you will find Sweet Karma Bakery. No matter where you park in the lot, your nose will be greeted by the scent of freshly baked cakes and cookies.
