THIS YEAR’S ANNUAL KIDSFEST hosted by the Merrick Chamber of Commerce had a perfect turnout and perfect weather. The crowds packed in for the craft booths, music, dancers, a magic show, an American Idol contest with judges, rides, games and food galore. The event serves as a fundraiser for the Merrick Chamber of Commerce Scholarship fund that gives prizes to graduates from all three schools. Above are the performers of The Amercian Idol contest from Rising Stars Performing Arts. With them in front are judges Evan Feist, Robbie Rosen and Karmine Alers. See more photos on page 10.

Person of interest sought in police probe

Police are looking for a “person of interest” in an attempted abduction of an eighth-grader who was on his way to Merrick Avenue Middle School on Friday morning, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano said at a press conference on Monday in front of Chatterton School on Merrick Avenue. Police are also interested in talking to him about several other possible nearchild-abduction (dubbed “stranger”) incidents in the Bellmore-Merrick area since April 3. The parent of the student involved in the near-abduction told Merrick Life that “in

no way” was her son, on his way to school, touched by the man. Instead, she said her son was cutting through a parking lot underpass when he saw a man with a bike on the sidewalk on Merrick Avenue as he came out of the underpass. The man said something to her son, sounding angry. When the student turned away from the man and walked hurriedly toward school, he turned to see where the man was. “The man was reaching for my son but did not touch him at all,” the student’s mother said.

Steve Skrynecki, chief of department, told those assembled that “there [may be] a predator among us and we’d like to find this man so that he may help us,” describing the man of interest as an Hispanic, between 21-30 years of age with a slight growth [bump] on his face and, as of Friday, may be growing a moustache. “We consider this a high priority,” First Deputy Commissioner Thomas C. Krumpter told Merrick Life after the conference, and increased police patrols have

been added to the communities. He said several electronic resources are being implemented to help identify this person. “A license-plate reader will be in certain cars parked at the sides of roads looking for a dark green sedan, a white truck or a white van,” Deputy Commissioner Krumpter said. Those are the vehicles most mentioned when interviewing possible student victims of this man. He said the plate reader could take photos of plates on these types of cars and trace their origins to the original owners. He added that taking photos could also discern whether specific cars are driving (continued on page 2)

the neighborhood to create a pattern of significance to police. He said a large data model was being developed that would “zero in” on any suspicious persons. No level of criminality “There is no level of criminality at this this time concerning the person of interest,” Chief of Department Skyrnecki said at the conference. David Feller, superintendent of North Merrick Schools, told Merrick Life the district continues to “speak to our children about stranger safety,” and in a letter to parents he stressed that parents must do the same. Additionally, he referred parents to a police publication on stranger safety found on the Nassau County Police’s website – www.police.co.nassau.ny.us/pubserv.htm. Dr. Dominic Palmer, superintendent of Merrick Schools, told Merrick Life that when the district learned of the latest incident last Friday, “I instructed every classroom to do a brief training and go over stranger safety, which is already embedded into the curriculum,” he said. He added that while students know this is an important issue and are alert, “they are not fearful. There is no panic.” Jo-Ann Erhard, president of the North

Bellmore Coordinating Council of PTAs, said, “We as parents appreciate the increased diligence by Nassau County police. This is another example of using all the resources available to us. I especially want to thank our school districts for sharing information. “If we work together to report any suspicious activity, remind our kids to walk in groups, and always let someone know where they are, we can keep our children safe.” Jonathan Butler, a member of the North Merrick School District Board of Education, told Merrick Life he is pleased to see the increased presence of police in the community. “We must all be at the top of our game in watching” for the safety of our children, he said. He thanked local public officials for being proactive toward the potential abduction issue. If you see something, say something Mr. Denenberg said that “protecting the safety of children is our primary concern,” and thanked the First and Seventh Precincts for their diligence toward working at apprehending the suspect or suspects. He also echoed the county’s longtime strategy in combating child abductions off the street, saying, “If you see something, say something.” He urged residents to contact the coun-

with at least two students, asking them to come to the vehicle, or waving to them to come over by saying something. First Deputy Commissioner Krumpter told those assembled that, historically, potential abductions rise during the springtime. “The concentration of potential abductions is abnormal at this time,” he said. But, if children have cellphones they can call 911 or they can take photos of anyone possibly wanting to abduct them.

Ten rules to combat stranger danger Spring brings everybody out in the open, to walk, jog and play ball. It is a wonderful time after the depressing winter, especially after superstorm Sandy. But recent reports of strangers approaching children in the area serve as a reminder to temper that euphoria with watchfulness. Here is some advice gleaned from the National Crime Prevention Council (ncpc.org): 1. Teach your children the difference between strangers they should trust such as police, firefighters and school personnel, and strangers they should not trust, who might not necessarily seem scary. 2. Teach your children the warning signs that a stranger has bad intentions such as encouraging them to break the rules and keep a secret from their parents, or asking them for help. No adult should ask a child for help. If an adult does ask your child for help, tell your child to get another trusted adult. 3. Teach your children not to accept a ride or invitation into a stranger’s home. If a car follows them or slows down, tell them to run in the opposite direction. 4. Teach your children not to accept any offer of candy or gifts and keep away from the stranger to avoid being grabbed. 5. Tell your child to be careful not to be grabbed from behind. Say, “If a stranger does grab you, fight as hard as you can. Yell, This is not my dad or mom. Call 911.’ ” 6. Tell your children to use their wits. One Texas boy was released by kidnappers who had grabbed him outside of school after he told them his dad was coming in the opposite lane and had seen them. (Not true, but it saved him!) 7. Drill your child with these four words, “No, Go, Yell, Tell.” Say “NO,” GO away from the stranger, YELL for help and TELL a trusted adult. 8. Tell your child to play with others, because there is safety in numbers. 9. Teach your children where there are safe places to play. 10. Tell your children you need to know where they are at all times. If they are playing at one person’s house and then go to someone else’s, you need to know. Make sure they know your cell phone number.

The Eighth Annual Robbie’s Run here was a huge success, raising $47,000 that will help place automated external defibrillators on youth sports fields to save lives. With 1,725 participants among all three runs – the 5K, 1-mile mini-run and kids’ fun run – including 1,150 5K runners, Robbie’s Run has grown to become one of the largest 5K events on Long Island. In addition to runners, hundreds of volunteers helped make sure the events went smoothly, and hundreds more spectators came out to support the events and the runners. The Eighth Annual Robbie’s Run, an event of Forever 9 – The Robbie Levine Foundation, was sponsored by NFI Advisors, Inc., Coleman Country Day Camp and several other local businesses. Robbie’s Run is a 5K road race through the streets of Merrick that was created in 2005 following the death of nine-year-old Robbie Levine, who collapsed and died on the baseball field during Little League practice. Founded in 2005, Forever 9 sponsors the annual Robbie’s Run to raise awareness of sudden cardiac death and how AEDs save lives. The yearly run raises thousands of dollars that have been used to supply youth sports organizations across the New York area with AEDs. Had a defibrillator been available and accessible on the field, Robbie may have survived. Following his death, Robbie’s parents, Jill and Dr. Craig Levine, put their energies into raising awareness of sudden cardiac arrest in children and the importance of defibrillators in saving lives. Forever 9’s goals are to educate the public about defibrillators and to ensure that these life-saving devices are available and accessible at every youth sporting event. The organization holds three fundraisers, the 5K Robbie’s Run race and walk in Merrick, the Dealing With Hearts Gala and the Golf and Tennis Outing. For information on Forever 9, visit www.robbielevinefoundation.org.

NO INJURIES IN CAR FIRE: Nor th Merrick Fire Depar tment closed down Merrick Avenue for 25 minutes beginning at 8:25 a.m. when a call came in about a minivan on fire opposite the entranceway to Merrick Avenue Middle School. A woman driving her child noticed smoke and pulled over, got out, unstrapped her child and left the scene quickly. NMFD Chief Jim Rogers said the van was close to a fence, requiring quick work to douse flames that engulfed the van.
