With so many unhealthy options lurking behind grinning fast food mascots and couch potato-pleasing video games, it is essential that youngsters receive guidance from the next generation of medical professionals.
Such was the thrust of a Health Education Fair at Mattlin Middle School in Plainview last week. Medical students from the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine and librarians from the school’s Health Sciences Library joined
Plainview Hospital resident staff to bring healthy enlightenment and medical career exposure to the high school and elementary school level.
A day after the middle school shooting in Nevada, Nassau County announced a new panic alarm program which will allow each school in the county to connect directly to the Nassau County Police Department in case of an emergency.
“The schools in Nassau County are a safe place, and will remain a safe place,” said County Executive Ed Mangano at a press conference at Carle Place High School last Tuesday. “Our planning and communication has increased dramatically in the past few years, culminating in this very important two-way communicator, (which) is a very important step forward in protecting our students, teachers and administrators.”
Every community has its share of the dark and unexplained; every region has its urban legends and spook stories spoken about in hushed whispers.
However, the Shadows of the Paranormal (SOP), a brave and intrepid group of spiritual sleuths, are casting light on Long Island’s darkest corners with a series of investigations and lectures on the subject of the macabre.
Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School continues to reach new academic heights.
The institution received high marks in a recent ranking of the top 1,000 schools in the country compiled by Newsweek/Daily Beast, nabbing the 278th spot — a grand improvement from the school’s 2012 ranking of 837th overall.
A local elected official is pushing a federal agency to allow a woman from the Philippines to enter the county and perhaps save an Old Bethpage woman’s life.
Congressman Steve Israel called on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to expedite the review and consideration of a humanitarian parole case for Caroline Dela Cruz, who wants to donate her kidney to Esther Slubski, who suffers from end stage renal disease.
Dela Cruz, a friend of the Slubski family, was found to be a match for her friend, but has been denied a nonimmigrant visa multiple times. This has prevented Cruz from traveling here to donate her kidney to Slubski.
It is a dark, bone-chilling night and a madman is on the loose. The guts of a thousand tormented and dismembered souls line the hallways as mutilated bodies are stacked 10 high, blocking any possible escape. The air is choked with a sinister silence, broken only by the shallow, halting breaths signaling a coming dread.
You are about to die. And you love every minute of it.
At least that is the hope of Plainview filmmaker Frank Sabatella, a horror fanatic and maven of the macabre who recently wrapped the short slasher flick “Children of the Witch,” about a troupe of undead, resurrected, turn-of-the-century trick-or-treaters who terrorize an all-girls slumber party.
Cerro Wire Property
For nearly two decades residents and mall developer Taubman Centers have been fighting over Taubman’s plans to construct a luxury mall on the former Cerro Wire property bordering Robbins Lane and the Long Island Expressway in Syosset.
The site was once listed by The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) as a hazardous waste zone. It was removed from the list of Superfund sites in 1994 after a clean-up effort.
Taubman already owns a chunk of the land, and wants to build an upscale mall—the company’s first in New York. That would threaten Simon, which owns Walt Whitman Shops and Roosevelt Field Mall nearby. It would also threaten one of Simon’s partners in the Syosset project, Castagna Realty Co., which owns Americana Manhasset.
If there’s one thing most people have in common, it’s the drive to get ahead in a competitive and challenging economy, and one of the riskiest ways to do so is playing the stock market...especially if you’re doing it on your own.
Well, such a prospect needn’t be as intimidating or difficult as one might think; thanks to the Long Island Stock Traders Meetup Group (LISTMG), which holds monthly public meetings free of charge at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library, even an average Joe or Jane can become a stock market whiz...with a little guidance and support, that is.
Music Institute of Long Island (MILI) located in Manhasset at the Community Reformed Church, on Plandome Road recently announced four students, including one from Plainview, were accepted and will participate in this year’s All-State Music Festival for high school students.
Violinist Amanda Hedgecock, who is from Old Bethpage and attends Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School, will participate in the festival, which is sponsored by the New York State School Music Association.
The Plainview-Old Bethpage community will be well represented when a group of Long Island business leaders step up and into the ring for charity next month.
A variety of causes stand to benefit from the 10th annual Long Island Fight for Charity at the Hilton Long Island in Melville Nov. 25, as 20 fighters take a break from their day jobs as landscapers, marketers, construction workers, attorneys and more to enter the squared circle and become pugilists for a day for a cause.
