Editorial: Marine Corps Sergeant Majors Cup Competition June 16

Written by Christy Hinko Friday, 15 June 2012 00:00

Marines and potential recruits, “poolees,” will fill Zach’s Bay at Jones Beach on Saturday, June 16 for the annual Sergeant Majors Cup competition. More than 600 marines, from more than 14 New York State recruiting stations, will participate in the competition held each year for all Marine Corps candidates waiting to deploy to boot camp.

The event is a physical competition, giving candidates a preview of some of the grueling demands of boot camp once they arrive at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in Parris Island, SC.


From the desk of Senator Charles Fuschillo: June 13, 2012

Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. has announced that the New York State Senate recently passed legislation to restore the STAR property tax rebate check program.  Restoring the program would deliver valuable property tax savings to senior citizens and middle class families.

“Long Island families pay some of the country’s highest property taxes and many are stretching their family budgets thin to survive in this economy. They need real and direct tax relief. Restoring the STAR rebate check program would deliver valuable property tax savings to overtaxed, overburdened Long Island families and allow them to keep more of their hard earned money,” said Senator Fuschillo.


Letter: More Funding Needed For Tobacco Control

Friday, 08 June 2012 00:00

The American Lung Association joined the World Health Organization (WHO) in celebrating World No Tobacco Day on May 31. This year’s theme, Tobacco Industry Interference, focused on the need to expose and counter the industry’s increasingly aggressive attempts to undermine global tobacco control efforts.

What we’re seeing in New York, and throughout the country, is the point of sale product display marketing that is cleverly designed to appeal to children. On World No Tobacco Day, attention was drawn to the fact that when these tobacco displays are placed prominently at checkout counters next to candy and gum and outside of stores at kids’ eye level, it encourages them to smoke.

Assemblyman James D.

Editorial: To My Fellow Veterans: Remember The War Dead

Written by Christy Hinko Friday, 25 May 2012 00:00

I was horrified this week to see, on TV, former soldiers chucking their military service medals over barricades, in the direction of the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, during the scheduled NATO summit. Their decision to return the medals was a message to NATO leaders that they detest U.S. troops in Afghanistan, and the U.S. participation in foreign wars. They are disappointed with how they have been treated, both within the “system” and by the general public, since returning home.

Editorial: Observe Armed Forces Day May 19

Written by Christy Hinko Friday, 18 May 2012 00:00
Many nations around the world celebrate a version of Armed Forces Day as a way to collectively honor their military forces, aside from individual days throughout the year dedicated to the birth of each branch of service.

The missions of today’s soldiers continuing to fight overseas remain a travesty back home. On Armed Forces Day it’s appropriate to acknowledge, and celebrate those who are serving, as well as those who have served. There is certainly reason to observe Armed Forces Day on Long Island, home to more than 250,000 veterans and hundreds of troops presently serving locally and abroad.


From the desk of Senator Charles Fuschillo: May 16, 2012

Written by Senator Charles Fuschillo Friday, 18 May 2012 00:00

New York State Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. announced that the New York State Senate passed legislation he sponsored to increase penalties for people who impersonate attorneys in New York State.

“Phony lawyers deserve real punishment for defrauding innocent consumers.  People hire lawyers to carry out some of their most important personal and financial wishes, such as wills, home purchases, and marital separations. All of these important matters can be jeopardized if a licensed attorney does not carry them out. This legislation would ensure that scam artists who pretend to be licensed attorneys face higher penalties,” said Senator Fuschillo.
