Just one week after the Herald published my letter about there being no letter “P” in “Binghamton”, I read your “Binghamton University Dean’s List” article---and was so proud to see that you had not only correctly spelled “Binghamton” in the headline, but also two more times in the body of the story. That’s a perfect 3-3, 100%, A+ ! Imagine my chagrin, however, when I was unexpectedly saddened to notice that immediately after your 3rd consecutive correct spelling of “Binghamton”, you misspelled its HARPUR College of Arts and Sciences as
“HarpEr”----even though my published letter had clearly stated “...as a 1965 graduate of SUNY-Binghamton (when it was known as HarpUr College)”.
Yes, I was saddened at this disappointing turn of events; but if you publish THIS letter I will be glad you misspelled “HarpUr”. (By the way, you might be the one-millionth person to have made this same exact error; so there might be some prize in it for you.)

Thanks in large part to a substantial increase in sponsor support – and Mother Nature’s cooperation – the 2014 Plainview-Old Bethpage Craft and Gift Fair was a rousing success.
A caravan of vendors filled the parking lot of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library starting at 7 a.m. By the time fairgoers crossed the blue and green balloon arch at 10 a.m. to receive their free T-shirt and bags stuffed with sponsor goodies, there were 108 booths ready to welcome them on the sunny day.

A special series of medical lectures will be held throughout the country in October. The Plainview Hospital is one of the stops on the tour.
On Sunday, Oct. 19 from 7-9 p.m., a free lecture will be presented by Franz Gringinger, MD, Austria and A.W. Arends, MD, Germany. These specialists are members of the Medical Scientific Group (MWF), a part of the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends.
Dr. Gringinger earned his degree at the University of Vienna in 1987 and from the beginning of his medical career, was interested in alternative methods.
