Tiger Schulmann’s wants to help aid the community in the fight against bullying. The class will consist of skits performed by our staff and students demonstrating scenarios that a kid would face in school, and teach them how to properly react without resorting to violence. Located at 55 East Old Country Rd. in Hicksville and starting at 11 a.m., the class will also go over key components which bullies look for in victims and show kids and adults how to carry themselves around others. The class is an hour and a half and is free. Make sure to spread the word to anyone who is suffering from bullying and Tiger Schulmann’s hopes to see many participate at its location in the Delco Plaza. This class can be taken by anyone from any town. Lets end bullying together.

Full Service/ACTIV Members FREE, Senior Club Members $5, Non-members $10. Fire In My Ears is the story of Mary, a beautiful young woman who has been taught that her appearance is her only asset. Her beauty, she concludes, is all she needs. She makes one monumental decision just as she embarks on adulthood and this sparks her life’s journey that is replete with anger, resentment, and despair. The resulting misery spreads, infecting her descendants like a family plague. Determined to save at least one member of her family from this curse, she begins telling Sarah, her nine year old granddaughter, the story of her life.
Special Olympics New York presents this fun way to raise money for a good cause. The Rundead is a 5k trail run through Brady Park in Massapequa Park starting at 8:30 a.m. where runners must escape hungry zombies. Each runner will start off with a flag belt and three flags. These flags represent your lifelines. Zombies throughout the course will be attempting to take these one at a time. If you lose all three, your dead and the zombies have won. Health stations will be scattered throughout the course. If you choose to make a stop and receive a time penalty, you can gain another lifeline. Use speed, strategy… whatever it takes to keep your flags. If you finish the race with at least one, you have survived. If zombies have taken all your flags you can complete the race but you wont be eligible for awards. Join up for this wild new event. You can sign up as a zombie or a runner, so there’s something for everyone. Log onto 2013rUNDEAD.kintera.orgt/BradyPark to register.

The wife of a Plainview man traveled all the way from Uganda to Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola to give birth the way she wished.
Chanda Ginsberg, whose Plainview native husband works for the United Nations and is currently posted in Uganda, was determined to have a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). And when the time came, she and her husband chose Winthrop. While researching labor and delivery options, the couple was uncomfortable with the medical providers in Uganda and regional hospitals in East Africa. Her husband’s family lives in Melville with connections to Winthrop; his mother is a nurse practitioner who has worked with Winthrop, and his brother’s children were born at the Hospital as well. She also had her first child there three years ago, when they were back in the U.S. between posts.

Evel Knievel twitched his nose, wiggled his tattooed ear and winked at the Palamino bunny. Too Hot to Trot flipped over and was judged according to the American Rabbit Breeders Standard of Perfection.
The haybarn in the Old Bethpage Village Restoration recently played host to 40 exhibitors with their assortment of bunnies ranging from Dutch Satins, Angoras, English Lop, and the Lionshead at the annual Spring Long Island Rabbit Show put on by the Long Island Rabbit Breeders Association. After viewing these animals, one quickly realizes that not all rabbits are white with pink noses.
