Letter: ‘Appalled’ by Rate Increase

Friday, 29 January 2010 00:00

As a state senator representing many communities in the Aqua service area, and as an Aqua customer myself, I am appalled that the state Public Service Commission (PSC) has approved a double-digit Aqua rate increase which will result in higher water bills for Aqua customers.


Letter: NuHealth Website Offers Access to Haitian Relief Efforts

As the island nation of Haiti struggles to recover from the unimaginable destruction resulting from the recent earthquake, our thoughts and prayers are with not only the victims, but with our many employees and patients of Haitian descent.

Letter: State of the State From the Governor

Written by David A. Paterson Governor of New York State 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.

All too often in Albany it is easier to deny reality and demand what we cannot afford than to accept that years of living on the margins of our means would one day have to end. Cultures of addiction to spending, power or approval have doomed empires, and now they threaten the Empire State.

But I do not write you today to replay old grievances or reclaim lost ground. We are here to rebuild. Rebuild our State’s economy into a national model of ingenuity and strength. Rebuild our people’s confidence in the stability of our State. Rebuild our manufacturing base to meet the energy standards of this enlightened age. And most importantly, rebuild the trust that the people of New York once had in their government.


Letter: A Thank You To Residents

Written by Dave Mejias 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.

Over the years, I have worked with civic activists, PTAs, fire chiefs, village officials, school boards and school administrators. I thank them for their service as they work to improve the quality of life in our community without regard to politics or partisanship. I drive through the place that I call home and see how it has improved. Whether it was a blighted area turned into a beautiful pocket park, new playgrounds for our schools, downtown revitalization, or knowing that local fire departments have the critical life-saving tools they need, working with them proved that it truly does take “teamwork to make the dream work.”

Once again, thank you for the honor of representing you for the past six years. I will see you around town. Happy New Year!




What Every Long Islander Should Know: January 8, 2010

Getting Back Our Mojo

Back in the day, Long Island was a land of movers and shakers.

People came here with vision and purpose. They saw opportunity, and seized it.


Letter: How Can Town Officials Give Themselves Raises in This Economy?

Friday, 08 January 2010 00:00
It must be really nice to give yourself a raise (“Town of Oyster Bay Board Votes to Increase Salaries,” The Massapequan Observer, Dec. 25, 2009).

Letter: Aquifer System Still Being Replenished

Friday, 01 January 2010 00:00
The story “Underfoot and Underappreciated - Water, Slipping Through Our Fingers,” that appeared in the Dec. 4 issue of the Massapequan Observer perpetuates the misunderstanding that the Long Island aquifer system is being overpumped and overused. This is simply not true. There is sufficient data that has been established over the last 75 years that supports the fact that although the aquifer system has undergone periods of reduced elevations, it has continued to be replenished.

Liver Lines: December 18, 2009

Written by David Bernstein, MD, FACP, FACG Friday, 18 December 2009 00:00

As another year ends and a new year begins, it is time to assess which preventative health measures we as individuals should address in the upcoming new year. For those people turning 50 years of age, it is time to address colon cancer screening. This topic is so important that although we discussed this somewhat earlier this year, I believe that it is worth revisiting. The following three paragraphs come from the flier announcing the National Institutes of Health Consensus Conference on Colorectal Cancer Screening to be held in Bethesda on February 2-4, 2010. I encourage any interested party to attend this meeting.
