Written by Steve Mosco, Wednesday, 20 August 2014 00:00

Michael Dulphin, a Plainview resident who makes a daily commute to a local college, said he has seen school zone speed cameras pop up near Parkway Elementary School as well as Our Lady of Mercy school on South Oyster Bay Road.

LI DOG, the Long Island Dog Owner’s Group, is a not-for-profit organization championing the cause of the canine in Nassau and Suffolk counties, and it’s mission is to get the island’s four-legged friends the rights their passionate owners believe are owned to them.

At a recent meeting at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library, Ron Richichi of Westbury has been a member of LI DOG for about a year, and said that he first joined the group when he heard that they were starting an initiative to open a dog park in East Meadow’s Eisenhower Park, which he noted was a stone’s throw from his house. Since that successful effort, he’s taken on a role as one of the group’s co-organizers.
