Hurricane Irene was truly a learning experience for all Long Islanders and so many communities along the East Coast.
After Hurricane Katrina, the NYS Department of Health required every healthcare facility develop a disaster plan. With Hurricane Irene coming to Long Island, we put these policies, written “just in case”, into action. I am writing to thank those who cared for the residents at Daleview Care Center and who helped to keep them safe during this emergency situation. My first thank you goes to Daleview’s staff and management team who helped prepare the facility for the storm. They made sure we had the supplies we would need if we lost power and that the building was secured.
Senator Kemp Hannon has announced that federal disaster assistance is now available for homeowners, renters and small businesses in Nassau County as a result of damages incurred by Hurricane Irene.
“FEMA has moved quickly to assess the damages to Nassau County from this storm,” said Hannon. “If you are a resident or small business and you sustained any losses, call FEMA’s toll free (1-800-621-3362) number to see if you are eligible for assistance. You must register with FEMA to receive assistance.”

This letter is in response to Long Island Wins latest article by Maryann Sinclair Slutsky entitled The Recession. Let’s review and analyze The Recession.
Of course, like all her prior pieces, Slutsky is selling her immigration reform and amnesty for illegal aliens, in her endless efforts to convince law-abiding U.S. citizens that illegal aliens/criminals belong here. A position, I clearly do not agree with, but here are some of Maryann Slutsky’s and Long Island Wins solutions to our financial troubles. I use quotes to distinguish Slutsky’s own words and postulations.
With Hurricane Irene causing significant damage across Long Island, Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. is providing tips to individuals who need to file insurance claims.

Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen!
What a wonderful evening to listen to such beautiful music which was created during trying times but I just wanted to make you aware that we all are currently on historic grounds with the former Republic Aviation factory not far from here and its Republic Airport alongside. In the factory’s place is now Airport Plaza and the airport has become one of New York State’s busiest non-commercial aviation operations.
I wanted to inform you that Governor Cuomo has signed legislation I support to make our roads safer by strengthening the state’s law against texting while driving.
The law better enables police officers to enforce the state’s ban on using hand-held electronic devices while driving by elevating the offense from a secondary violation to a primary violation. Officers can now stop and cite drivers solely because they were texting, emailing, viewing webpages, taking pictures, or playing games on a handheld electronic device. Prior to the new law, drivers could only be cited for this violation if another violation, such as speeding, was also being cited.
(Editor’s note: This is a letter in response to a donation collected by the employees of Anton Community Newspapers and delivered to the INN on Thursday, August 4 in response to their public call for baby items.)
On behalf of the individuals whom we feed and shelter at The INN, I wish to extend my gratitude to you for your generous donation of baby items.
Your donations were distributed to the guests living in The INN’s two family shelters and the guests who visit the Mary Brennan INN Soup Kitchen, who are in need of not only food and shelter, but other basic amenities including personal care items.
The signing of SUNY 2020 into law by Governor Cuomo marks an important victory for the state and particularly Long Island. The program, which I have long advocated for as a member of the Assembly Higher Education Committee, is designed to enhance investments throughout New York’s 64-campus university system, create jobs through public-private partnerships and establish a rational tuition policy.
The investment opportunities that SUNY 2020 creates will help to ensure that SUNY Stony Brook, Farmingdale College and other state universities are given the ability to compete academically on a global level by having the resources to invest in top professors and research professionals. These investments will help to attract the best and brightest students and will result in the type of research and development we need to create new and innovative jobs.
Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano’s attempt to sneak through a massive tax hike was overwhelmingly rejected by voters on August 1st.
Mangano and the republicans in the legislature should never have tried to sell the people of Nassau on the bad idea of raising their property taxes to build Charles Wang a new Coliseum.
Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. has announced that the New York State Senate passed legislation he supports to protect the families of fallen soldiers. The legislation is designed to limit protestors’ ability to disrupt the funerals of American servicemen and women.
“Families of soldiers who died defending our freedom deserve to be able to say their final goodbyes in peace. Laying a loved one to rest is a difficult and emotional thing to do as it is; dealing with disruptions from hateful protestors only adds to that pain. Creating new protections for these families, who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country, is the right thing to do,” said Senator Fuschillo.
