MAHOPAC, N.Y.— School may have just started, but students and staff at Fulmar Road wasted no time in helping victims of the devastating hurricanes that have left so many homeless.

Teachers Andrea Jones and Christine Czuy organized Fulmar’s Charity Walk/Run for Hurricane Relief, which raised more than $3,000 for the Red Cross’s hurricane-relief efforts.

More than 240 of “Fulmar’s finest” joined together on the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 19, including students, administrators, staff and MTA members, to rally for the cause. Each participant was asked to donate $5 to the Red Cross.

“We ran, played a version of freeze tag as well as a caterpillar tag game,” Czuy said. “To finish this beautiful showing of kindness, all of the participants spent a few minutes meditating and sending good thoughts to all those affected by the recent hurricanes,” said Jones.

 School Principal Gary Chadwick said he was impressed with what the staff and students were able to complish.

“Children are often reminded to spread kindness,” he said. “This event showcased the caring of our community—we could not have been more proud.”

Sleep Much?

Are you one of those folks who tells people that you can get by with sleeping, say, a mere four hours a night? I’ve always envied people like that.

I’m the south to their north—a polar opposite. I need double that amount of sleep. I’ve always assumed—or maybe once was told—that it is due to my slow metabolism. Or maybe I’m just boringly normal ...

Don’t Call Me... I’ll Call You

“Hello, hello,” I said, picking up the phone when I saw my husband’s number come up on my Caller ID.

Nothing.

“Hellllloooooooooo?” I said louder.

“Can I have a tall, decaf, skim mocha Frappucino,” I heard my husband say. It sounded like he wasn’t talking directly into his phone, but rather from a galaxy far, far ...
