Response to Census 2010 recruiting efforts has been overwhelming, but New York Regional Census Center (NYRCC) officials are still testing applicants for possible future employment in hard to count areas in which the questionnaire mailback response rate has traditionally been low and which may face challenges such as language barriers or cultural isolation.
Parents are continually forewarned by media reports about the importance of buying safe toys, but there’s another quintessential holiday item that poses great danger: Christmas lights.
Across New York, taxpayers are angry like never before because state government is not working for them. In light of the state’s $3.2 billion budget deficit, 26-year high unemployment and deteriorating fiscal condition, taxpayers should be angry at Albany’s broken status quo.
I have Christian, Jewish, Moslem, agnostic and atheist friends. (I do get around). Around this time of year, they say “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Hanukkah,” “Joyous Ramadan,” and “Happy Holidays.”

As Veterans Day recedes in the rearview mirror and 2009 wears away, the Levittown Historical Society stops to pause on the events of the past eleven months.
Our monthly general meetings, all open-to-the-public events at the Levittown Public Library, began in March with a commemoration of the bicentennial of Charles Darwin’s birth and a discussion on the historical influence of Darwinism augmented by an exhibit of books, photographs, and scientific memorabilia on the subject. (Coincidentally, Darwin was born on the same exact day as Abraham Lincoln).

I would also like to thank the many volunteers, colleagues, neighbors and friends who gave so much of their time and efforts in support of my re-election.
More than five years ago the Levittown community welcomed me with open arms as the editor of their local newspaper. I greeted the community with my Sept. 24, 2004 editorial and I must bid farewell in the same manner.
Ever since H.G. Wells published The Time Machine back in 1895, the SciFi genre has permeated every aspect of modern popular culture. It’s in our society DNA to assume that, by the year 2525, Mars-bound spacecraft will be seen blasting off several times a day from any one of this planet’s myriad spaceports.
