Bully Prevention Seminar

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.

The Rundead

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.

News

It’s not every day that you read about a chocolate brown mare being spared from a harsh reality. While it’s the dogs and cats we read about most in animal rescue stories, Plainview native and animal lover Andria McMaugh, shines light on the endangered horses of Long Island, and what is being done to help them.

McMaugh strapped on her riding boots at 10 years old. When she entered George Washington University as a freshman, McMaugh became a member of the school’s Equestrian team.

Bank representatives and police have officially acknowledged that multiple skimming devices were found at TD Bank’s Plainview branch during a routine repair last month — and the acknowledgment has customers livid.

According to investigators and bank officials, on March 9 an ATM repairman was doing routine repairs in the branch at 500 Old Country Rd., when he discovered a skimming device on the ATM in the bank’s vestibule. A second skimming device was found on the card reader at the vestibule’s entrance, police said.
