Walnut Elementary Students and their Lawyer/Mentors Will Take Field Trip To Sweet Hills Riding Center
East Meadow, May 1 – For the past seven years on a weekly basis, fifteen (15) attorneys and staff from the East Meadow law firm, Certilman Balin Adler & Hyman, LLP, have traded in their power lunches to spend an hour with third and fourth graders at Walnut Elementary School in Uniondale. The program is called “LIKE,” which stands for Lawyers Involved in Kids’ Education, and it is affiliated with the Mentoring Partnership of Long Island. Fred Skolnik, a partner in the Corporate/Securities Practice Group, even created word games for the students to help them with the New York State Education Language Arts (“ELA”) standard examination and to improve their analytical skills.
But now the mentors of the LIKE program have something different planned for their mentees. About 15 of the students, together with many of the mentors and their family members, are scheduled to take a field trip to the Sweet Hills Riding Center, located in the West Hills County Park on Sweet Hollow Road in Huntington, on Saturday, May 14th. The students will take a bus from the school and arrive at approximately 10:00 a.m. They will learn about horses, how to care for them, and be taken on a guided trail ride. They will also have the opportunity to watch Steven Kuperschmid, an avid equestrian and partner in the Corporate/Securities Practice Group at Certilman Balin, demonstrate his horse’s jumping skills. They will be back at the school by approximately 2:00 p.m.
Walnut Elementary School in Uniondale has been recognized as one of the National Schools of Character, and the school credits their involvement in the LIKE program as one of the reasons for its success.
For further information about this event, contact Debra Scala-Giokas, Director of Marketing, at (516) 296-7087. The rain date will be Saturday, May 21.

'Money & Main$treet' Debuts on FiOS1 Long Island
Half-Hour Daily Show Focuses on Business and Financial Matters in Towns and Villages on 'Main Streets' Across Long Island
GARDEN CITY, N.Y. – The Long Island business scene is the focus of a new show on Verizon FiOS1 Long Island.
"Money & Main$treet" debuted Monday morning (April 11) on Verizon FiOS1 Long Island, with an insightful look at the business and financial issues on Long Island.
Hosted by Carrie Lee, the 30-minute show will air each business day at 10 a.m. Verizon FiOS subscribers on Long Island can check the redesigned FiOS1 website -- http://fios1news.com/longisland -- or their on-screen programming guide for replay times and show schedules.
"This new show takes a practical and in-depth look at the business of Long Island," said Michelle Webb, general manager of FiOS1. "And while we'll take a look at the larger issues that affect our economy, we will also spotlight local Long Island businesses and residents and tell how they cope with all sorts of financial matters."
Each show will originate from a "Main Street" in a town on Long Island.
In the premiere show, Lee talks and walks on the streets of Sayville with Kay Cameron, owner of Kay Cameron Jewelry, and who heads up the Sayville Revitalization Committee and is a board member of the Sayville Chamber of Commerce. Next up is a profile of local entrepreneur Lisa Smith, owner of Coquette, a women's boutique in Garden City.
Today's show also includes an "Ask the Experts" panel discussion including Lee, Kevin Law, president of the Long Island Association; Michelle Fine of Strategies for Wealth; and Tom Tripodi, who is president of The Tripodi Group and who is affiliated with Prudential Douglas Elliman. In the final segment, Lee answers questions submitted by Long Islanders on a wide array of financial topics.
Lee, the show's host, has an extensive background in financial reporting, with experience at Dow Jones, CNBC, CNN Headline News and Thompson Reuters.
"Money & Main$treet" is the third new and original program to debut on FiOS1 Long Island in the past several weeks.
"Heroes on Our Island" was launched on the Verizon FiOS1 Long Island channel on March 8, and "Restaurant Hunter," debuted on Feb. 24. "Heroes" focuses on everyday local heroes across Long Island, and can be seen each Tuesday at 8 p.m. "Restaurant Hunter" looks at the restaurant and food scene on Long Island, and offers Verizon residential customers Verizon Perks through MyVerizon.com to restaurants featured on the show. "Restaurant Hunter" airs each Thursday at 8 p.m. on Verizon FiOS1.
