Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is coming up! Don’t forget your mom, aunt, grandmother or step mom for this special day.

News

Massapequa Public Library’s Bar Harbour branch was hopping with excitement (not to mention an overload of cuteness) recently when they held their Bunnies, Bunnies, Bunnies event; a chance for kids of all ages to meet and learn all about — what else? — baby bunnies.

Judy Wilson, a Miller Place resident, is an independent contractor for Nassau and Suffolk County Library system; she normally heads many different arts and crafts programs throughout the year, but in late March every year she takes on a special responsibility that is sure to always pack the youngsters in.

These days, when local residents are more used to storefronts locking their doors for good as opposed to opening them for the first time, there’s nothing like seeing a home-grown business prosper and even grow despite a stifling economy.  

That’s just what the owners of community stalwart Bestever Bakery have accomplished thus far, as they recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for their second location, at 1030 Park Blvd. in Massapequa Park, which first opened toward the end of January of this year.


Sports

Massapequa athletes recently received honors from their coaches at Kellenberg Memorial High School.

Each season, the coaches of all of the Kellenberg teams choose one member of their team who stands out as an athlete that has worked hard to improve themselves in their chosen sport.

The Farmingdale State women’s lacrosse team won the first game of their Spring Break trip to North Carolina with a victory over Greensboro College. In wet and muddy conditions, the Rams (8-1) held an 8-5 lead at the half and took the eventual 13-10 win.

In the first half and tied 2-2, the Pride (7-5) pulled ahead 4-2 with two unassisted goals by junior attack Nadya Fedun. Farmingdale State answered with four straight scores for a 6-4 advantage, on goals by juniors Alyssa Handel, Nicole Marzocca and Massapequan Jackie Kennedy.

Sophomore attack Ashlynn Parks put Greensboro within a goal at the 7:03 mark, but the Rams scored two more to lead 8-5 at the halftime break.
