Library Renovations Stack Up

Written by Chris Boyle, plainview@antonnews.com Wednesday, 14 May 2014 00:00

When you stroll into the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library these days, look around — you might just notice a little something has changed.

The library recently finished work on an extensive $200,000 renovation project, a major undertaking that took well over a month of hard work to complete. The goal was to provide more of the services that patrons have been requesting over the years, according to library director Gretchen Browne, and to that end the library’s old Media Department was re-purposed to make room for additional media space, more quiet study and meeting rooms, and a bigger Community Services Department.

For the past year, Manetto Hill Jewish Center (MHJC), a progressive Conservative synagogue in Plainview, has been celebrating its 45th birthday. And members — both long-timers and new ones — are comfortable in its skin.

A small, but growing synagogue, its motto “large enough to serve you, small enough to know you,” has been embraced by its 200-family congregation. Ronni Mordechai, a mother of two young adult children from Levittown, joined MHJC three years ago.

A young Plainview resident is getting a jump on his professional, post-college career.

The FASB establishes accounting and financial reporting standards for all businesses in the country, and landing an assistantship with the organization is considered the business school equivalent of clerking for a U.S. Supreme Court justice.

The passing of a Plainview resident due to leukemia inspired a local restaurateur to help others touched by the dreadful disease.

Tony Lubrano, owner of Piccola Bussola in Mineola, started Night On The Town in memory of his father, Plainview native Pasquale, after the family patriarch died. Pasquale Lubrano was an Italian immigrant who came to the U.S. in 1957, seeking the American dream. His dream came true in 1980 when he opened his own restaurant in Glen Cove, La Bussola Ristorante.

As the years accumulate — slowly at first, and faster as time goes by — many people find themselves in their twilight years struggling to retain the independence that defined their adult lives for many a year; for some, this is harder than others, and a helping hand in this situation can indeed be a blessing.

Abe Kirschman works for the Town of Oyster Bay out of the Mid-Island Y Jewish Community Center of Plainview, assigned to POB CARES, as he has done so for the past seven years and counting. POB CARES is a Neighborhood Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (NNORC), which is primarily a volunteer-driven organization that is dedicated to helping the elder members of the community, free of charge. Kirschman said that the only requirements for aid are that someone be over the age of 60 and a resident of Plainvew-Old Bethpage.

Special Delivery

Written by Courtney Allison, plainview@antonnews.com Thursday, 24 April 2014 11:22

The wife of a Plainview man traveled all the way from Uganda to Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola to give birth the way she wished.

Chanda Ginsberg, whose Plainview native husband works for the United Nations and is currently posted in Uganda, was determined to have a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). And when the time came, she and her husband chose Winthrop. While researching labor and delivery options, the couple was uncomfortable with the medical providers in Uganda and regional hospitals in East Africa. Her husband’s family lives in Melville with connections to Winthrop; his mother is a nurse practitioner who has worked with Winthrop, and his brother’s children were born at the Hospital as well. She also had her first child there three years ago, when they were back in the U.S. between posts.
