Don’t Forget the Tomatoes I have recently taken to food shopping more frequently, with the intention of picking up “just a few things” during each visit to the grocery store, eliminating the need for a cart and - theoretically - such a large expense in one shot. The cost, well, it depends on the particular outing and what items are on the menu. The cart… let’s just say I have yet to master the art of consolidating my purchases to one of those convenient little hand baskets they provide by the front entrance. Case in point: on my last trip to one of my favorite food stores, I meandered through the aisles selecting a bit of this and that. At about the halfway point, as I was nearing the deli counter, I noticed that my basket was nearly overflowing. The gentleman taking my cold cut order seemed to note the same fact simultaneously,

remarking, Are you gonna carry all that?? I’m going to try, I replied with a smile, while bracing my basket on the edge of the shelving in front of me. My order complete, I continued on my way into the next section of the store, surveying the shelves to determine how many more items I could possibly carry. As I contemplated, I felt a tap on the shoulder. I turned to find a man standing with my cold cuts, those just purchased several steps back, in hand, apparently having fetched them from the floor behind me. Whoops. On to the produce section, where I attempted to juggle tomatoes while picking out cucumbers. And there they went, rolling down the aisle, nearly taking out a young mother and her child. Mom, it’s a little red ball!

the girl squealed, taking off after the tomato. Oh my, I’m so sorry! I hurriedly gathered up the rogue produce and headed to checkout, resigned to the fact that I simply could not carry one more thing. There, I was met with a similarly bewildered look from the cashier, who watched as I piled my merchandise onto the conveyer belt, one item at a time. Do you have bags? she asked. Why yes, yes I do, three in fact. She chuckled, Three bags and no cart? Yes, I replied sheepishly. Yes, I recognize the irony in that. After my total was calculated {not quite as inexpensive as planned}, the cashier said Here’s a tip: even if you think you’re only running in for a gallon of milk, take a cart. Always. Take a cart. One day, I’ll learn.

the district’s relationship with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to maximize recovery claims. “It was an extraordinary experience to participate with so many superintendents from around the country gathering to share knowledge with those in need,” said Mr. Robinson. “One of the key takeaways was to make sure that your district is reporting

its own story. If you don’t, inaccurate information will spread.” The seminar was part of an ongoing effort to strengthen local resiliency and build system-wide capacity in areas across the Hurricane Harveyimpacted region.

Preparedness Training School leaders from throughout Nassau County are getting a lesson in safety and security preparedness thanks to a partnership between Nassau BOCES and the Nassau County Police Department (NCPD). The two organizations joined together to create a half-day training in how to prepare for and respond during an emergency situation. The training is being offered on several dates this spring at the Morrelly Homeland Security Center in Bethpage. The presentation focuses on making sure each district not only has policies and procedures in place, but emphasizes the need to conduct drills so that everyone knows how to respond during an actual emergency. “We really have to work to break the code of silence,” said Peter LaDuca, Nassau BOCES Executive Manager

for Health and Safety Training and Information Services. “What we see very often is that someone knew in advance but didn’t say anything. We have to reinforce the idea of speaking up if you see something. This should be a major focus of your plans.” Sergeant Robert Connolly, head of NCPD Homeland Security, echoed this call to action. “We need to know. We need you to report when you think something is wrong.” Sometimes people do not want to call 911 when they’ve overheard something or seen something that did not seem right, he said. To combat that, the police department has developed several ways for people to report this information without calling 911, including an App called See Send, an anonymous

tip line 1.800.244.TIPS (8477) and social media. Throughout his tenure, Mr. LaDuca has worked with every school district in the county. During his presentation, he pointed out some of the key areas in which school districts could improve their preparedness, such as: · Ensuring that other school building personnel, in addition to principals and assistant principals, have been given the training they need to manage an emergency situation, should it fall to them as part of the chain of command; · Requiring school personnel to take a radio with them every time they take students outside the building, even for recess; and · Having social and emotional skills as a strong component of the school curriculum and culture. Many school districts

are turning to technology to play a significant role in their safety and security plans. Mr. LaDuca, however, urged school leaders to be cautious about this. He pointed out the many issues he has seen districts encounter after investing in security technology, including failing to train staff or to continue training new staff, and not keeping up with the required longterm maintenance of these devices. “If it was me, my dollars would be invested in locks on classroom doors,” he said. Mr. LaDuca also urged every school administrator to take the free online school emergency planning courses offered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Links to these and other training resources can be found on the Nassau Schools Emergency Planning

Consortium website, www. nassauschoolemergency. org. Active shooter situations are usually very short – 75% take less than five minutes and 52% are over in less than two minutes. But it takes much longer to ensure that the perpetrator has been stopped. During that time, emergency personnel are often not able to treat the injured. That role often falls to those around them – in school shootings, this is teachers and other school personnel. “A lot of injuries can be controlled with very little training,” said Sergeant Connolly. He urged the attendees to participate in Stop the Bleed training, a national program that focuses on teaching life-saving interventions such as how to tie a tourniquet. Locally, NYU Winthrop Hospital in Mineola offers the course “Bleeding Control Basic.”

CONTEMPORARY FASHION FOR TODAY’S WOMAN

Sergeant Connolly also urged school leaders to make sure that students know that making terroristic threats, including that they are going to shoot someone on social media, is a Class D felony that would follow them for the rest of their lives. NCPD Homeland Security will conduct follow-up the trainings by meeting with individual school districts to continue the conversation.

The third-graders in Stephanie Annunziata and Lauren Reiman’s class at Bowling Green Elementary School, in the East Meadow School District, explored their various cultures with a family tree project. Over the course of a month, the students learned about their families’ countries of origin, including Brazil, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Italy, Pakistan,

Poland and Ukraine. They gathered facts about the country’s flag, capital, important holidays and traditional cuisines. After conducting their research, the third-graders created the base for their projects by painting a tree trunk and leaves on a trifold poster, then attaching pictures of family members dating back to their greatgrandparents to complete the illustration. They

adorned the posters with facts about their native countries, including the capital, flag colors and customs, as well as an essay about their favorite family tradition. The project concluded with a celebration that invited students and their families to learn about each other’s cultures while enjoying treats representing their ethnic backgrounds.

NYS Outstanding Teacher

Kara Zahradnik, a social studies teacher at East Meadow High School, has been selected as the 2017-2018 New York State Outstanding Social Studies High School Classroom Teacher by the New York State Council for the Social Studies. According to the NYSCSS website, the award is separated among elementary, middle and high schools and recognizes exceptional social studies teachers at each level. Nominations are based on the instructor’s

abilities to develop or use instructional materials creatively and effectively; incorporate innovative instructional strategies and techniques; foster a spirit of inquiry; and foster the development of democratic beliefs and values, and the skills needed for students to become effective citizens. Sheena Jacob, social studies department chairperson at East Meadow High School, nominated Zahradnik based on her accomplishments in education and the

discipline. “What sets Kara apart from other teachers is not only what she does for her students and the community, but also the passion and love that she brings to the building every day,” said Jacob. “Her colleagues and administrators appreciate her efforts and trust her judgment.” A grateful Zahradnik added, “I am thankful for my students, colleagues and family, who made it possible for me to pursue a career that is very fulfilling. I greatly appreciate the NYSCSS for granting me this honor and recognition.” The district congratulates Zahradnik on earning this notable award and inspiring students and faculty to excel.   Photo courtesy of: East Meadow Union Free School District

Moving Forward To start, although there are numerous definitions on the subject, let’s define mentoring as a bond between two people whose purpose is to develop and foster growth in the relationship. Let us then define the roles that each person takes. The mentor is the person who initiates the relationship in a supporting role. The mentee is the person being mentored. The act of being mentored was something you most likely experienced in your early childhood. In your later years, you took on the role of the mentor and, without consciously knowing it, you continue to be in that role almost every day. Let’s delve into the subject from both a business point of view and then take a look at how it affects you personally. From a Business Viewpoint: Through the years, leaders in both the government and business sectors began to recognize the strategic importance of mentoring young employees who have just started their careers. For example, they would select senior employees with a good track record nearing the end of their employment as potential mentors. These folks, with a deep knowledge of the company and its operations, make excellent mentors

and receive a great deal of satisfaction in seeing their mentees begin to develop their talents within the company culture. It’s important to remember that those nearing retirement are not the only ones suitable as mentors; it can be anyone in the ranks who knows the company well and has the motivation to take on the role of mentor. From a Social/Personal Standpoint: In contrast to a business environment, mentoring on a personal level is much less structured and provides a wonderful sense of satisfaction for both the mentor and mentee. It tends to reveal a broader picture where mentoring can begin at birth and continue on until death. Let’s start with the birth of a baby. Those of you who have experienced it will always know the joy of having guided the newborn into all phases of being, including feeding, cuddling, protecting and being part of the wonderful aspect of bringing a child into the world. In effect, you have mentored through each early phase. Moving forward, do you remember a time when you held the child’s legs as he/she took the very first steps? Or the time when the big moment arrived and you took the training wheels off the bike? Just think of the mentoring you freely gave, and then the

Students Can Dance Wellington C. Mepham High School held its 10th annual So They Think They Can Dance competition on April 10th. The event is modeled after the reality dance competition shows on television and is presented by the varsity kickline team each year. Eight teams were selected by teachers/ coaches Kerry Dennis and Jackie Geller and were composed of athletes,

musicians, artists and scholars from each grade. The students competed to win the praise and scores of judges Principal Eric Gomez and Assistant Principals Dr. Jennifer Carne and Marie Netto. The night was hosted by Mepham senior David Riobo and special education teacher and track coach Anthony Augugliaro, who was a competitor as a student in

the very first competition in 2009. The Bellmore-Merrick broadcasting students covered the evening’s dance numbers. Team Celine were the Jazz champions and overall winners. “The night continues to showcase Mepham spirit and pirate pride,” Dennis said.

Mentoring

with Clark Lambert

feeling afterwards of accomplishment for both you and your child. Are you ready to move on to their teenage years? Do you recall setting guidelines of when they had to be home? And, when the curfew was broken, how you patiently explained why these rules were necessary? The point is that your family mentoring was to assure that all your children grew up within family traditions. Let’s move on to your later years as an adult. It is at this point where you will have experienced both being mentored by a person and establishing a mentoring relationship with another individual. Here are just a few examples of you being mentored by another: When you need a friend and someone is there for you; when you are having difficulties with a relationship and you chat with someone you trust; when you try to cope with helping your elderly parents and turn to a trusted friend in the same situation (before seeking professional help); when you are feeling ill for an extended period of time and seek the advice of a trusted family physician. I am currently going through a mentoring experience of my own. Several years ago, I was the manager of a sales group with three area sales manager reporting to me. At that

time, I mentored each one, with good results. Years later, one of these managers lost his job due to a reorganization. He contacted me with a request to help him with his resume, seeking advice on how to live under the strain of being unemployed and other factors. We speak every day; his revised resume is complete and being circulated to the proper people, and the results make us both feel good about ourselves. This is a prime example of mentoring at its best. All you need to do is reverse the above situation and you will realize that, in each scenario, you were probably mentored by another person as well. A good example is to observe newlyweds in their daily lives. They are always holding hands, laughing together, supporting each other in every way. In an exemplary relationship, a married couple celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary will exhibit many of the same traits. Point made. In summary, you have now seen the power of mentoring, whether you are being mentored or are in the process of mentoring someone else. Make the most of it, and move forward with success.

Allergy And Dirty Ducts

(NAPSI)—Allergies are nothing to sneeze at but you can make your home more comfortable for people who have allergies and improve your indoor air quality—by cleaning in an often forgotten place. Indoor air quality can be a big concern for many families. After all, in a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust— including dangerous chemicals and other pollutants—is created annually through everyday living. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and recirculated as much as seven times a day. Over time, this leads to built-up contaminants in the ductwork. Since your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home, you want to keep it clear.

Evening of STEAM Students and families of the East Meadow School District enjoyed an evening of 21st-century learning during the district’s inaugural STEAM Night, held at East Meadow High School. Throughout the building, elementary and middle school students enjoyed the more than 70 educational activities with their families, and explored the burgeoning disciplines of science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics. As an example, they learned how to code Dash and Dot robots to

control their movements, examined constellations in the night sky in the STAR Lab, designed levers to propel a Wiffle ball as high as possible, created bracelets using binary code, turned ordinary objects into instruments, engineered mini-sailboats to travel across a body of water, constructed twoand three-dimensional shapes out of toothpicks and marshmallows, created beautiful artwork using magnets and paint, and worked with 3-D printers. Guests also explored different STEAM-related careers, learned about

the research projects high school students have been undertaking, and discovered how to become involved in the district’s science research program. Special thanks go to Director of Mathematics and Science, Debra Harley, Nassau BOCES, the Cornell Cooperative Extension and the district’s STEAM Committee for organizing a successful night. Similarly, this event’s success hinged on the more than 100 district teachers who planned and administered each of the evening’s events.

English Teacher Recognized Jason Boland, an English teacher at Sanford H. Calhoun High School in the Bellmore-Merrick Central School District, was recently recognized as a distinguished teacher by the Harvard Club of Long Island. Julia Losner, Calhoun grad and current Harvard University student, nominated Boland for the award. “For a student to recognize you after they graduate is quite an honor,” said board trustee Wendy Garguilo at the

April 9 meeting where Boland was recognized. A graduate of Calhoun himself, Boland began his educational career at Merrick Avenue Middle School, and then after three years, he continued on to Calhoun High School, where he has been since. He has taught students of all grades, including 11th grade AP English Language. A former Herald reporter and editor, Boland has functioned as the Hoofbeats adviser for the last 12 years. He has

been invited to speak at the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s annual convention, presenting to more than 200 other advisers and journalism students about, “reinventing your school newspaper.” An all-year contributor to the Bellmore-Merrick school community, Boland has also functioned as the girls varsity softball coach for the past 15 years and a summer school teacher for the past 20 years.

Learning is a Ball Spheros are the latest technological innovation to hit classrooms in the North Bellmore School District. The small robotic spheres allow students to explore computer programming and coding. Instructional technology specialist Michael Bevilacqua has been introducing the devices to

sixth-graders throughout the elementary schools. Children use iPads to control the robots using Blockly and javascript. The goal for each challenge is to get their Sphero to travel a specific path or complete an obstacle course. One activity requires getting the Sphero to knock down miniature bowling pins.

Mr. Bevilacqua said that Spheros give students an understanding of the electronic toys they use on a regular basis. He noted that North Bellmore students participated in the Hour of Code in December, and this activity lets them take their skills to the next level.

Earning Top Honors Ten Woodland Middle School eighth-graders, in the East Meadow School District, were recognized for their scientific research at the LISEF-SSP Broadcom MASTERS Fair on March 17th. This is one of three science fairs held by the Long Island Science and Engineering Fair. Woodland had students place in the first, second, third, and honorable mention categories for their work. According to its website, LISEF promotes three science fairs that allow students to present their work to more than 1,000 judges consisting of leading scientific professionals. The middle school fair, a partnership between the Society for Science and the Public and Broadcom,

During the fair, held at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, more than 200 middle school students presented their research and indepth experiments in biology, behavioral science, physics, earth science and mathematics to representatives of local school districts, universities, scientific institutions and other professionals in their related fields. Julia Curet and Ashlee Sjoholm captured first place with their experiment, “The Effect of Cost on Consumer Decisions.” The team of

All Kids Fair Set This year’s All Kids Fair features many new attractions and guests while bringing back favorites from years past. A new addition to the Sunday, April 29th event is The Butterfly Experience. Children and adults will be able to watch the beautiful, multi-colored butterflies flying around in a huge tent, or, for a small fee, will be able to enter the tent with a feeding stick and have the butterflies come to them.

Children will enjoy a large number of additional activities and “freebies,” including face painting, photo booth, balloon animals, popcorn, cotton candy, train tables, water ice samples, a video game

Mountain bike trails on four New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC)managed properties in Suffolk County will reopen on April 6th, DEC Regional Director Carrie Meek Gallagher announced today. The trail closures had been in place due to small game and deer shotgun hunting seasons and to prevent excessive impacts to trails due to the annual spring thaw cycle. “DEC makes every effort to manage its 16,843-acres of upland properties in the most sustainable manner possible. The annual closure period of the mountain biking trails in the fall prevents conflict between hunting groups and cyclists and the continued closure into early spring allows the trails to stay less rutted, which increases trail safety,” Director Gallagher said. The DEC properties where mountain bike trail

closures have been lifted are: • Otis Pike Preserve • Rocky Point Pine Barrens State Forest • Eastport Pine Barrens State Forest Mountain biking is allowed year-round on DEC’s Edgewood Oak Brush Plains Preserve, which features approximately 12.3 miles of mountain biking trails and on DEC’s Calverton Pine Barrens State Forest. Trails on these properties are maintained by Concerned Long Island Mountain Bikers (C.L.I.M.B) and DEC. Bicyclists on DEC property must: Ride only on marked bicycling trails, except on the Otis Pike Preserve where only established roads may be used; Cyclists must wear hard-shell helmets and eye protection and shall yield to official vehicles and equipment, horseback riders and hikers; and Ride only between the

hours of dawn and dusk. DEC Forest Rangers may potentially close trails for limited time periods throughout the year due to poor trail conditions or so that Forest Rangers and other DEC staff can conduct activities such as prescribed fire operations without impacting firefighters and bicyclists. Recreational activities on most DEC-owned lands on Long Island require an individual to have a NYS DEC - Managed Land Access Permit. Access permits are free and are valid for three years and must be carried at-alltimes. Permits are required for anyone 12 years old or older. For additional information on threeyear access permits and recreational opportunities on DEC-managed properties, please contact the DEC’s Natural Resources Department at 631.444.0270 or visit the DEC’s website at www.dec. ny.gov.

PUZZLE ANSWERS:


W.T. Clarke Middle School students, in the East Meadow School District, participated in the Change 4 Change club’s annual dunk tank fundraiser on March 28th, to raise money for local charities of choice. The charities will be determined in the spring during a special Change 4 Change giving ceremony. Hosted by club advisers

Katie Pienkos and Ashley Sanalitro, each grade level gathered in the school cafeteria to raise money by paying a dollar for three throws to try and dunk a teacher. One by one, teachers volunteered to sit in the dunk tank as students tried to hit the target and watch their teachers go down. Students cheered on their peers as the event unfolded and recorded how

many dunks occurred. A friendly competition was held between the grades, to see which grade could hit the target the most. “Our favorite part of this event each year is having the students come together to show their school spirit and give back to local charities,” said Pienkos and Sanalitro.

Tips For A 100 Percent Hassle-Free Move (NAPSI)—Moving can be a hassle, stressful and emotional. If you’re considering a move, know you’re not alone. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 40 million Americans moved in 2016. That’s a lot of moving. “Every year, people take on the frustrating

experience of moving,” said Adam Doron, CEO of Unpakt, an online platform designed to eliminate stress from the moving experience. “What many don’t realize is that moving doesn’t have to be difficult. There are resources available to ensure an easy, hassle-free move.” According to Doron,

the main challenge when moving is guaranteeing the final price of a move, as moving prices can increase on move day with no notice. Another challenge? Verifying that a mover is licensed and insured. He suggests using a reliable online service to compare guaranteed, transparent prices from prescreened

moving companies, as well as customer reviews. That allows people to manage and control their move from start to finish. It’s also beneficial to have a third party handling payments and issues. “Working with an online platform like Unpakt means you can avoid the hassle of entrusting an

unknown mover with getting your belongings to your new home,” said Doron. “Unpakt enables consumers to compare verified, reputable movers and enjoy a stress-free move. “For your next move, get online. Visit Unpakt and instantly compare guaranteed prices from

prescreened moving companies. It’s easy to book your move online, just like you would a hotel or flight. We want to become the ‘go to’ online comparison site for everyone’s move.” Concrete Concrete was invented by the Ancient Romans.

Caring For Granite Countertops (NAPSI)—Granite countertops are the most popular option available when it comes to kitchen or bathroom remodeling. They look great, they’re durable, but they can also cost thousands of dollars. Granite requires special care and attention because it’s a natural stone. Here are a few tips to help you protect your investment: • Seal your countertops: According to the Marble Institute of America, an industry group, granite countertops should be sealed so that the stone is more resistant to dirt and spills. Check with the manufacturer or retailer about the best kind of sealer to use on food preparation areas. • Be careful what

you clean with: Never use ammonia—based products-or cleaners containing vinegar, lemon or orange—on your granite countertops. Avoid abrasive cleaners such as dry or soft cleansers. Don’t use cleaning products that contain acid such as bathroom, grout, or tub and tile cleaners. Specialty granite cleaners can be used, but they can be expensive. There’s a way to stretch your dollars. • Mind your budget: JAWS Glass & Hard Surface Cleaner (www.jawscleans. com) cleans granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, glass and even your flat-screen TV. It’s also non-toxic and costs less than most other cleaners because each

JAWS product is actually two bottles in one. (The cartridge refill is attached to the bottle.) There are also some other basic preventive measures you can take to protect your granite countertops: • Use coasters: Place a coaster under all glasses, particularly those containing alcohol or citrus juices that can etch or dull the surface of many stone countertops. • Use trivets or mats: They’ll protect your granite countertop from hot dishes and help avoid scratches. Granite countertops can really add spark to a kitchen or bathroom. Proper care will keep them looking beautiful.

Signs Of Unsafe Driving In Older Adults (NAPSI)—The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that there are more than 38 million drivers age 65 and older. Age is not the only factor that can impact driving abilities, but it is an important one. There is evidence that most people experience age-related declines in physical and mental abilities. These changes—which can affect everything from vision to how quickly you can make decisions—influence how well you can drive. They can also be difficult to address for yourself or with older people you know, since driving

often represents freedom, independence and control. But transitioning from driving doesn’t mean you have to lose these things. Your health care providers or Area Agency on Aging (www.eldercare.gov) can point you toward a range of transportation alternatives in the community. The first step toward finding those tools is recognizing when you might need them. Signs that an Older Adult’s Driving Skills Need Testing So how do you know whether you or an older adult you know is developing difficulties as a driver? These issues can be warning signs that suggest

that an older driver may need to be tested or evaluated: • Getting lost in familiar areas • Ignoring traffic signs and signals • Becoming easily agitated or angered • Falling asleep or being unable to concentrate when driving • Reacting too slowly to dangerous situations • Forgetting or ignoring driving basics (like yielding to the right of way) • Having trouble judging distances.

reception and awards will follow at the Meadow Brook Club for both courses. For tennis, a light morning breakfast will be served with match and cardio play to follow. Lunch will be served after the morning tournament. An afternoon match play has been added to this year’s event. Brisk walking around the golf course and playing tennis has many proven health benefits. Adults may gain as much as two hours of life expectancy for each hour of regular, vigorous exercise–like very brisk walking–even if they don’t begin exercising until middle age. Walking

is the single most effective way for many Americans to establish and continue a healthy lifestyle to improve their heart health.

Golf Classic Set On Tuesday, June 12th, the American Heart Association will be hosting its 30th annual Golf Classic-A Joel Hamroff Memorial Tribute at the Meadow Brook Club in Jericho and the Piping Rock Club in Locust Valley. Event Co-Chairs, Raymond Piacentini, Senior Vice President, Marsh Private Client and Joan Kaye, Key Private Bank along with the corporate and community leadership of Long Island will be participating to increase awareness of the importance of physical activity. This event provides an excellent networking opportunity

while promoting exercise and physical activity. This year’s event will honor Walter D. Rabin, Signature Financial. The American Heart Association is excited to announce that the Tennis Classic will once again be a part of the day’s events. The Tennis Classic will take place at Piping Rock Club in Locust Valley with the cocktail reception taking place that evening at the Meadow Brook Club in Jericho. Linda Stewart, Bank of America will Chair the Tennis event. Jill Byrne is the Tennis Vice Chair. Neil Seiden from Asset Enhancement Solutions,

LLC will be the tennis honoree. Much progress has been made in the fight against heart disease and stroke. However, many Americans are still not getting the proper amount of exercise that will effectively combat risk factors for serious health issues. According to the American Heart Association, nearly 70 percent of American adults get no regular physical activity. Yet contrary to common perceptions, physical activity is just as important in preventing heart disease as other modifiable risk factors including smoking,

cholesterol and blood pressure. A person is 1.5 to 2.4 times more likely to have coronary heart disease if he or she is inactive. Adult (and childhood) obesity/overweight level continues to increase: 65% of all Adults are obese or overweight. There will be morning and afternoon shotgun starts to accommodate all participants for the golf event at the Meadow Brook Club and an afternoon shotgun start for Golf and Tennis will also take place at Piping Rock. There will also be themed holes and raffles along the 18-hole course. Cocktail dinner


(NAPSI)—When buying a used car, it’s important to look for problems that aren’t readily apparent. You might think of damage or fraud, but this includes any financial issues as well. What To Watch For For starters, make sure any unpaid liens have been resolved before buying the car. A lien is “a legal right to the vehicle by a third party to ensure the repayment of a debt or

other financial obligation.” This is a larger issue than many people realize. According to researchers from the Federal Reserve Bank, about 6 million Americans are at least 90 days late on their payments. If you buy a vehicle with a lien on its title, you become legally obligated to pay off the debts. The lien can also prevent you from registering the car until the lien is paid off.
