Written by Chris Boyle, editorial@antonnews.com Friday, 04 October 2013 00:00

With New York school districts recently mandated to adopt Common Core Learning Standards and begin a regular series of rigorous assessment testing to gauge teacher effectiveness, many parents are up in arms over the fact that traditional education as we know it might changed forever; and, many are charging, not for the better.

While many parents raised their voices in anger over the time taken away from teaching in favor of test preparation and creativity in the classroom replaced by standardized lesson plans, one woman went out the schools and attempted to effect a change.

Written by Steve Mosco, smosco@antonnews.com Thursday, 03 October 2013 00:00

Gregg and Eileen Balbera are longtime Roslyn residents that had achieved a life most would be proud of – they raised three boys, with Gregg building a successful 25-year-plus career on Wall Street. But for all of the professional success gained and guidance doled out to their children, there was one element of their lives that they had no control over.

Several of their older family members began to face the challenges associated with Alzheimer’s disease, and suddenly the Balberas were thrust into the role of caregivers. This experience gave them firsthand knowledge of the challenges many families face.

On any given day, crowds of people enjoy the newly completed portions of the Bethpage Bikeway Extension Project. From curious first timers to devoted regulars, the paths are filled with pedestrians, hikers, bikers, in-line skaters, racers and joggers all day long, into the evening.

Bringing Literacy To Nassau

Written by Chris Boyle Thursday, 26 September 2013 00:00

Being new to a country with a radically different culture can be hard enough, but it can be even harder when mastery of its language eludes you and makes you feel like an outsider in your new home.

 

Originally founded in 1968 as the Literacy Volunteers of America and based out of Freeport, Literacy Nassau teaches hundreds of Nassau adults who are functionally illiterate to read every year—and also help many foreigners who wish to get a better grasp of the English language.

 

Barbara Randell, who calls Plainview her home, has been an educator almost all of her life, teaching at the elementary level for 30 years. She initially worked in Massachusetts and Manhattan before finishing out the last nearly 20 years of her career in the Levittown school district.

Into The Mystic at Morrison’s

Plainview gastropub

offers unique

food and drink

It is time to trust in the gastropub.

Rarely seen in Plainview and neighboring towns, this restaurant phenomenon is known for unabashedly serving high-end beer, spirits and food. The menus are often adventurous; the customers, ferociously loyal.  

Looking to stake its claim with local eaters lost in a sea of commonplace meals is Morrison’s on Woodbury Road in Plainview. The genesis of Morrison’s is typical; an owner who grew up in the restaurant business opens her own place in a well-worn location. But far less typical is the product of this particular owner’s toil.
