More than 400 hearty souls braved the frigid waters and the very windy shore of North Hempstead Beach in Port Washington, to raise money for the Special Olympics. In the past the group has raised as much as $70,000 and hopefully this year it will surpass that amount.
Included in the mass of “plungers” is always North Hempstead Town Supervisor Jon Kai-man along with his wife, Kim, and this year, their very brave 5-year-old daughter, Iyana, as well as their son Shaun, but he “plunged” with his Great Neck North High School group.
You get what you pay for. How many times have you heard that expression? We have this generalized perception that the more something costs the more it is worth. This is invariably true, but the red herring in this line of thinking is price. Easy come, easy go. That’s another expression that is frequently bandied about.
I remember back when minimum wage was $1.05 an hour. If you worked four or five hours on a weeknight job you did not notice the value of your time as much as you did on a Saturday working eight hours with a lunch break after four. It did not take long to figure out that a $3.00 lunch at the deli pretty much wiped out an entire morning’s take-home pay. You had to make a decision. Was it worth it?
Value, worth, and price are concepts that we spend a lifetime attempting to define. Perhaps Karl Marx said it best when he wrote that the only real value came from human effort, labor, which brings us back to easy come, easy go. If you are not willing to labor and sacrifice to obtain something, then clearly that something is of lesser value to you. (So much for Aesop’s fox and his sour grapes.)
Last week Herricks matmen opened the New Year with a league dual match on Wednesday against the Plainview Old Bethpage Hawks. Highlander Second-Men warmed up the audience by plucking the Hawks 34-0. John Dunn (fr-125), Samir Licul (fr-130), Paul “P.J.” Tantillo (so-140), and Jason Liarikos ((fr-145) all won by pins. Justin Hwang won by major decision at 152. The Varsity contest followed with Plainview forfeiting five of the required fifteen weight classes. Coach Cliff Forziat wanted to go after them without the benefit of the free points, but that meant putting the pressure squarely on the shoulders of the younger and least experienced team members. Tom Gonzalez (sr) started things off at 152 and was manhandling his Hawk 8-4 when his opponent surrendered at 1:06 of the first period. Kevin Ryersen (sr) bumped up from 160 to 171 and pinned his man in 49 seconds. Anthony “Lurch” Rosa (jr) followed up at 189 with a 31 second pin.
