The Atlantic League champion Long Island Ducks announced that they have teamed up with COSTCO this season to present the “Long Island Ducks Fan Pack.” This offer, for COSTCO shoppers exclusively, combines tickets and team apparel for the first time in one convenient package, all at a discounted price.
“The Ducks and COSTCO are excited to team up to offer a great value for fans,” says Ducks president and general manager Michael Pfaff. “This package exhibits the natural synergy between our brands and our desire to offer value to customers.”
Each “Long Island Ducks Fan Pack” comes with a voucher redeemable for two box seats to any 2013 Ducks game at Bethpage Ballpark, subject to availability. The package also includes a voucher good for one official locker room championship t-shirt, the same one worn by the Ducks after winning the 2012 Atlantic League championship, and one Ducks baseball cap. All of this is included for just $39.99, a savings of up to 39% off the box office and Waddle In Shop price.
Fans can purchase this exciting offer at all five COSTCO locations on Long Island, including Commack, Holbrook, Melville, Nesconset and Westbury. All you need to do is pick up a “Long Island Ducks Fan Pack” voucher at the Ducks display inside COSTCO and bring it to the register. There, you will receive a ticket voucher, redeemable at the Bethpage Ballpark box office, and a merchandise voucher, redeemable at the Waddle In Shop at Bethpage Ballpark.
The Long Island Ducks are members of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball and play their home games at Bethpage Ballpark. Opening Day is April 26. For further information, call (631) 940-DUCK or visit www.liducks.com.

Senator Jack Martins discussed education, business and drug use among other topics in a an exclusive interview with this newspaper and FiOS 1 News. He’s currently seeking re-election in November, being challenged by Democrat Adam Haber. Pointing to what he called “key legislation,” particularly the tax cap legislation passed in 2011 and prescription drug bill he helped shepherd to enactment, Martins feels New York State is on track to continue fiscal responsibility.
“In these last four years, we’ve had four balanced budgets, we’ve cut taxes working together, we have paid off debt, streamlined government, kept spending below 2 percent each one of those years,” Martins said.

A contingent of 80 Mineola runners embarked on their first trek to lower Manhattan last year for the Tunnel To Towers 5K Run through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel toward the World Trade Center site. This year, the United Mavericks, a networking group of local business people that support local charities and causes, are gearing up surpass that number.
Mavericks reps say they’re half way to gathering 1,000 people to run in the event’s 13th year on Saturday, Sept. 28.
The run honors a fireman Stephen Siller, who was enjoying a day off planning to play golf before he learned the Twin Towers were hit by two airplanes during the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. He was one of the 343 firefighters who died when the towers collapsed.

Although the expectations for the 2014 Mineola Mustangs boy’s varsity soccer season may be somewhat measured, the team enters the season with the goal of a berth in the Nassau County playoffs. The team is young and inexperienced but there is light at the end of the tunnel.
There is considerable talent on the horizon. There are only four starting seniors and five sophomores on the roster. Four year starting senior forward Daniel Pardo returns (19 goals in three seasons) as does senior standout goalkeeper Andrew Pereira.
