They’re N-Raged

Officials and residents team up to

fight against gambling establishments

You can’t spell the word casino without “no,” and that’s what many people are saying to the idea of a casino in Nassau County—loudly and emphatically. Local elected officials Minority Leader Kevan Abrahams, Legislator Delia Deriggi-Whitton, Legislator and Mayor Wayne Hall have partnered with N-RAGED (Nassau Residents Against Gambling Enterprise Development) to lead the fight against gambling in Nassau County. N-RAGED, a newly-created coalition of concerned Nassau residents, hopes to prevent gambling establishments from invading Nassau neighborhoods.

This partnership will focus on raising awareness of the crime, bankruptcy, and mental health issues associated with the gambling industry. They argue that many communities, as close as Pennsylvania, have allowed casinos to open to boost local economies but have quickly discovered that the low-income jobs are short-lived and result in an increase in social and behavioral problems in the local communities.

The coalition stresses that the possibility of opening local gambling establishments will be a major issue for Nassau residents in the coming months.

The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) has frustrated commuters for years with it’s ridiculous fares, limited trains and constant problems, especially during the rush hour ride home.

Though the MTA is making an effort to add more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town.

After surviving the “Cold Blooded” episode last week, the eight remaining contestants on Ink Master faced off in a “Flash Challenge” testing their ability to use finesse. The tougher the situation, the more finesse an artist needs to create a masterpiece, and this week was no exception.

Artists were given five hours to tattoo amputees. The residual limb left behind after an amputation can be badly traumatized, unusually shaped and scarred. The artists were challenged to create a phenomenal tattoo on the residual limb to make these amputees love the part of their body they are missing. Although all of the contestants created beautiful designs, Bethpage’s Erik Siuda’s incorporation of the scar tissue and pre-existing tattoo into his design showed the most finesse.
