The students were four of only 322 semifinalists nationally. “We are really proud of these students and all of the hard work that they have done,” said Brian Cummings, curriculum associate for science and technology. “This accomplishment is a result of support from the district as well as the research department and science research coordinator Serena McCalla.”

Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce hosts 3rd Annual Meet the Candidates Breakfast

A large group of local business owners and other professionals converged on the Plainview Residence Inn on Wednesday, Oct. 17 for the 3rd Annual Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce Meet the Candidates Breakfast. While the event featured many of the same candidates as the League of Women Voters candidates forum held at the POB Library on Oct. 2 and covered many of the same topics, candidate Stephen Labate (R), challenger for the third Congressional District against Democrat Steve Israel (not present), made sure to bring federal issues to the table.

Like Labate, Democratic challenger for the 6th State Senate District Ryan Cronin was also without his opponent; this is the second event in Plainview this month where Cronin has appeared in the absence of Republican incumbent Kemp Hannon. In fact, the only race where both candidates were present at the breakfast was that of 13th Assembly District, where Republican challenger Louis Imbroto and incumbent Charles Lavine (D) faced off.

Town hall format and Obama’s performance finds president rebounding in the polls

On Tuesday, Oct. 16, Hofstra University was the site for the second of three debates between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. Hofstra had also hosted a debate between then-Democratic nominee Obama and GOP nominee Sen. John McCain back in 2008, making the school just the second university to host consecutive presidential debates. (St. Louis’ Washington University was the other.)

With Romney scoring what many considered an upset victory over Obama’s decidedly lackluster performance in the first debate, this follow-up was going to be a “deal maker or breaker in this campaign,” according to political pundit Chris Matthews, who spoke at Hofstra the prior week. Shortly after moderator Candy Crowley took the stage at 9 p.m., it was clear both candidates were prepared to come out swinging, making for a lively hour and a half that found roughly 65 million viewers tuning in to the town hall-style debate, according to the Nielsen Ratings.

Boy with Type 1 diabetes walks with family to raise money for diabetes research this weekend

Each day, 40 children are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) in the United States. One of those children was Gabriel, a third-grade student at Berry Hill Elementary School. Almost two years ago, Gabe was diagnosed with T1D; a slender child with a healthy diet and no history of juvenile diabetes in his family, his illness came as a complete surprise to his parents.

“It was a huge shock to all of us, but, for our son’s sake, we put on a brave face and jumped head first into learning everything we could about the disease that had changed our lives forever,” said Julie Rubinsky, Gabe’s mother.


Donating Toothbrushes To People In Need

SHS Sophomore Alexis Shore has collected more than 1,500 toothbrushes to give to those who cannot afford them

Most teens aren’t very keen on having braces, but for Syosset High School’s Alexis Shore, it wasn’t a bad experience: not only are her teeth now nice and straight, but all that time spent in the orthodontist’s chair made her realize that she wanted to go into the dental profession herself.

“I think that it’s a really cool thing to make people’s teeth so straight and perfect; and I love my teeth today and what the orthodontists have done for me,” said Shore, noting that she was also inspired by her father, an endodontist.

Questions Linger Regarding Syosset TAs

Written by Karen Gellender Friday, 12 October 2012 08:03

Syosset teaching assistants fear for their jobs while administration denies any plan to eliminate them

At the last board meeting on Monday, Sept. 24, Superintendent Carol Hankin said, in response to the allegation from attendee Martin Ugell (whose wife is a district TA) that the district is planning to mass-fire all district TAs, “There is no plan, at all, for this June to get rid of the TAs… I can tell you for sure, we haven’t talked about doing that.” However, the Syosset-Jericho Tribune has recently obtained a document, with Hankin’s signature, that explicitly mentions eliminating all teaching assistants.

POB Library Hosts Meet The Candidates Night

State Senate and Assembly candidates sound off on creating revenue, redistricting and cutting down on unfunded mandates

The 2010 Meet The Candidates Night at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library was a rowdy affair, with candidates for NYS Senate and Assembly seats harshly criticizing each other and sometimes yelling to be heard over a hostile crowd. In comparison, the 2012 Meet the Candidates Night on Tuesday, Oct. 2, moderated by Paula Blum of The League of Women Voters, was downright friendly. Despite the fact that the event was shorter and the crowd smaller, the candidates by and large had no problem proposing specific solutions to problems in response to questions from members of the audience.

“I think our national political discourse would be far better off if the discourse were as civilized and as substantive as it was tonight,” commented 6th District Senate Candidate Ryan Cronin at the end of the evening.
