Thursday, 23 May 2013 07:28

This May marks the 50th anniversary of Older Americans’ Month. It recognizes the valuable contributions senior citizens make to our communities. With so many older Americans under economic assault, we need to take action so this anniversary is more than just another ‘Hallmark’ holiday.

Letter: Remembering Veterans

Written by Donna Duffy Friday, 17 May 2013 00:00

Every minute, of every hour, of every day, Americans enjoy the blessings of a peace-loving nation; blessings protected by the selfless service of men and women in uniform who, when necessary, stand fast against the forces of fear, tyranny and terrorism.  For more than two centuries untold numbers of Americans have answered the call to duty.

Thank you, Pete Sheehan, for the excellent in-depth article on the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. You helped give a “face” to the poor and “make it personal.” It was my pleasure to speak with you. God bless.

From The Desk Of Senator Charles Fuschillo

Friday, 10 May 2013 00:00

Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. recently announced that he is cosponsoring legislation to protect military servicemen and women from double taxation when they return home from service. The legislation would exempt veterans from a state law, which requires them to pay New York State sales tax on a vehicle purchased out of state during their service, even if they paid sales tax on it already.

 

Prices Too High, We Won’t Buy: The 1969 Long Island Meat Boycott

Friday, 26 April 2013 00:00

As communities today struggle to recover from the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, let’s take a look at how one community on Long Island faced a financial crisis during the 1969 recession…

During the summer of 1969, the cost of living was soaring and meat was increasingly more expensive. Middle-class consuming families were choosing to buy cheaper cuts; while, many working-class families as well as senior citizens on fixed incomes were finding it impossible to afford even the cheapest cuts of meat like hamburger. Unwittingly following in the footsteps of thousands of housewives before them, two women in Levittown kicked off a consumer protest that gained national attention. 

 

Shine Light On Autism

Written by Lisa Goring Friday, 26 April 2013 00:00

Each year in April, millions of people around the world participate in Autism Speaks’ global Light It Up Blue campaign during Autism Awareness Month. It is a time to recognize and shine a bright light on those affected by autism, and to promote their contributions to our families, communities and society at large.

 

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a group of complex disorders of brain development. These developmental disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. Autism currently affects one in 88 children, and for many it is a lifelong disorder.

 

Letter: Very Bad, But No Worse

Friday, 26 April 2013 00:00

While I’m in total agreement with John Owens’ “Buttafuocoed” views about Long Island, I have some disagreements with John Collins’ reaction letter published last week (“Joey’s Legacy”). 

 

Collins is absolutely right when he says that “[Long Island] lacks political leadership that has any sense of vision for this area. The politicians are too vested in partisan politics and patronage. They lack the intelligence, experience and commitment to develop any bold, creative solutions to Long Island’s challenges...how dysfunctional the governmental process is in both counties. It is a half-century history of one stupid decision after another.” 

 

A Look On The Light Side

The Cobbler’s Tale

 Once upon a time, there was a cobbler whose child ran around town without any shoes.

“Look at her,” one villager whispered to another. “Barefoot again! Is he such a workaholic he can’t make his own daughter one pair of shoes?” 

“Maybe he’s lazy,” continued a third. “Or greedy, and wants to keep all the merchandise for himself.”

“In any case,” they all agreed, “it’s disgraceful.”
