On Thurs, Oct. 28, the Historical Society of Islip Hamlet hosts author Amy Folk and her presentation on her book “Murder on Long Island.” In 1854 Cutchogue a local farmer and his wife - James and Frances Wickham - were found murdered in their home, butchered with an ax. Blame for the murder fell on one of their farm hands, Irish immigrant Nicholas Behan, who had been fired. The murder not only shocked and horrified the local community but also throughout the northeast of the US. Details were eventually forgotten. Come learn what really happened in Cutchogue in 1854!

The program will be held at the Islip Public Library, 71 Monell Ave, 7-9 p.m. and is free and open to the public. For more info, visit www.isliphamlethistory.org, or call 631-559-2915. As COVID protocols are changing check the library’s website for requirements (www.isliplibrary.org).

Some showed up on foot, others on two wheels, to Birch Lane Elementary School in the Massapequa School District on Oct. 6 for National Walk and Bike to School Day. The quarter-century old initiative is sponsored by the National Center for Safe Routes to School to promote physical activity, safe pedestrian and bicycling skills, and a healthy environment.

Principal Stephen Aspetti said it was great to see so many students participate in the national campaign. He noted the many positive aspects about walking and biking to school, from the health and fitness benefits to building camaraderie among friends.
