Letter: Unique Store at Tri-County Will Benefit Levittown Residents

Friday, 12 February 2010 00:00

I just wanted to say a few words about Unique coming to Tri-County. I have lived in Levittown since 1951. My father and brother helped build Levittown and there have been many changes over the years.

 

 

Letter: Thoughts of Time Travelers

Friday, 05 February 2010 00:00

I recently encountered a glittering gem that, much to my dismay, came before me without attribution. Conservatives, it said, can’t get over the fact that the 1960s happened and liberals can’t get over the fact that the 1980s happened. Both yearn for the 1950s, it continued, except that whereas conservatives want to live in the ’50s, liberals only want to work there. It’s easy to forget the decade in which one finds oneself, and no wonder. I’ve encountered five distinct types of time travelers:

Each winter, New Yorkers and families across the country are directly confronted with one of the most crucial financial concerns regarding their teenage children – how to pay for their college education.

 

Letter: Stunned at Legislator Schmitt’s Pay Raise

Friday, 29 January 2010 00:00

I am beyond stunned that Republican legislative leader Peter Schmitt has given himself a hefty pay raise, going from $63,000 to $99,000, while Nassau County struggles to cut expenses. He and his deputy have awarded themselves these increases during a time when Long Island families are struggling to make ends meet, losing jobs and their homes.

 

Letter: No Increase for Seniors

Friday, 29 January 2010 00:00

Letter: Darwinian Principals Can Teach Us Something About Government

Letter: A Thank You to Residents

Friday, 15 January 2010 00:00

I want to thank you for the honor of representing the place where I grew up and have lived my entire life. I went into public service because I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives and to fight for those who couldn’t fight for themselves. Whether in public service or as a private citizen I will continue to work to make the place that I call home a better place to live.

 

Letter: State of the State From the Governor

Friday, 15 January 2010 00:00

(This is a letter from NYS Governor David A. Paterson to all residents of the state.)

This is a winter of reckoning. And I write to you today not only about the state of our State, but also the state of our self-government – a fragile instrument of popular will that is breaking under the will to be popular.

 

Letter: Government’s Purpose Is to Serve the People

Friday, 08 January 2010 00:00

I’d like to propose that 2010 be the year people begin to think about good government because, as Irish nationalist Michael Collins said of an independent Emerald Isle, considering it a reality is the first step towards it becoming a reality.
