The owner who decided to move the New York Islanders off Long Island once its lease expires in June 2015 may play a role in filling the potential void left by the teams’ departure. County Executive Edward P. Mangano, developer Bruce Ratner, Isles owner Charles Wang and Don Monti of Renaissance Downtown think they have a plan in place to solve the developmental conundrum that is the Hub, which includes Nassau Coliseum.
The group announced a strategic “Reuse Plan” on Tuesday, Nov. 20 that reportedly will transform the Coliseum within the first half of 2013. Others have tried and failed where Ratner is venturing and the 77-acre site in Uniondale could become barren in three years once Wang departs for Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
Plainview-Old Bethpage School District’s John F. Kennedy High School (POBJFK) String Orchestra students recently performed in the 2nd Annual Korean Parents Association of Long Island (KPALI) Music Performance Competition under the direction of POBJFK orchestra director Glenn Rubin.

That is what Congressman Peter King said at a press conference in which elected officials called on the federal government to send resources to get the job done in turning power back on for all Long Island residents. On Friday, Nov. 8, 11 days after super storm Sandy devastated Long Island, the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) reported that more than 81,000 Nassau County customers remained without power and more than 162,000 throughout Nassau and Suffolk. That was enough for King, County Executive Ed Mangano, Congressman Steve Israel, New York State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray and Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor John Venditto, to hold a press conference and ask the federal government to send the resources to do the job which LIPA has not been able to.
The U11 Plainview Hawks won a championship game over the Levittown North Stars by a score of 9-1 in the Hicksville Fall Classic. Plainview went 7-1 in the fall and the team’s only loss was to this Levittown team in the first game of the tournament by a score of 6-3.
This was a team win with patience at the plate, aggressive base running, timely hitting and strong pitching. Eric K. started the game and at first it looked like Levittown came to play. Their leadoff hitter walked on four pitches and went on to steal second and third base. Eric settled in by striking out the second batter of the game, and a soft line drive to first was caught by Alex J. for the second out. With the runner still stranded at third, Eric battled to strike out the next hitter for the final out of the inning. Eric went on and pitched his heart out and ran into very little trouble to finish a complete game, giving up one unearned run, three hits and finishing with nine strikeouts.
According to Library Director Gretchen Browne, the staff made a decision to do everything within reason to help those affected by the hurricane, and patrons took them up on the offer in a big way: making the library a second home. The library has been a spiritual center of the community for a long time, but for the last few days, it’s become a community center in every sense of the term.
The 5th Annual Grillo & Associates Blazing Trails 4 Autism 4 Mile Run was almost a brand new race: it was a new community (North Bellmore/North Merrick) with a new school, the Nassau BOCES Children’s Readiness Center, and a new flat course through some very nice local streets.
What didn’t change were the high quality hoodies given out for every entrant and volunteer, an array of past-race refreshments, quick and accurate results courtesy of JMS Racing Services, and a generous raffle highlighted by a Beach Bike courtesy of South Shore Bicycle and Fitness.
