Family, friends, school administrators and honored guests cheered on the Hicksville High School Class of 2014 recently, as students took their place as the 100th graduating class in the district’s history.

When I became gluten and dairy- free back in 2008, there weren’t many options available to me as far as bakery items was concerned. But as time went on and the need presented itself more and more, products began to flood the market and more happy eating days began to present themselves, especially here in Hicksville.
On a recent excursion through Hicksville, I came upon “Allie’s GF Goodies”, a new custom gluten-free bakery that is tree-nut free as well as kosher.
Each item that peered up enticingly from behind the glass looked better than the next, and soon, my husband was spending a few bucks on some “Sneakydoodles”, a gluten-free, vegetarian version of a Snickerdoodle.
In March, six enterprising teenagers founded CH3, a youth chapter of nonprofit ogranization Children’s Hope India, in hopes of making a difference in the community. Their first goal was to raise $3,000 to

Four months and three fundraisers later, the girls have not only met their goal, but far surpassed it. They were able to raise over $12,000 and will be sending three kids to the eight-week Young People’s
Day Camps this summer.

Automat's 9th Annual Car Show brought in a large crowd of cars as well as spectators for an event that, according to Automat owner Roger Browner, makes any other car show seem boring.

Around 300 cars showed up at the Automat Car Show in Hicksville. The show was open for everyone and free for exhibitors and spectators.
Catering to its environmentally and health-conscious customers, West East All Natural Bistro and Bar in Hicksville has taken the step to eliminate soda off its menu.
According to owner and health coach Raquel Jadeja, soda is not something that the individuals who frequent West East Bistro look for in a meal. “We did look at sales and see what we sell in soda on a weekly basis and it was so negligible,” she explained. “It’s just not something our clientele looks for.”
It’s not every day you see Tina Fey and Amy Poehler shopping at your neighborhood retail store. But that was the case last Thursday as camera crews, producers, makeup artists, bodyguards and some of the funniest people in Hollywood descended upon the Big Lots in Hicksville to film a scene for Universal Studios’ upcoming comedy, The Nest.
With the start of summer comes lazy days by the pool and picnics in the park. But the Hicksville Public Library wants to make sure reading’s also on the top of your child’s summer to-do list. Signups for the popular summer reading program start June 30.
Children will be rewarded a prize when they give in a list of books they read to the librarian. Children can also bring in a picture or small report about the book and the library will create a summer reading club magazine of all their pictures and stories, which will be handed out at the program’s final show.
As a little girl growing up in Brooklyn, artist Dolores Caporale of Hicksville spent endless hours lost in a world of her own creation. Never found far from her sketchbook, the young art hopeful was constantly drawing some of the most famous movie stars of the day.
