From The Desk Of Assemblyman Charles Lavine: January 25, 2013

Statement On Passage Of NY SAFE Act

Communities across Long Island and New York State are safer as a result of the passage of the most comprehensive and sensible gun reform legislation in this state’s history. I am proud that proposals I have sponsored over the years have been incorporated in this life-saving measure. I have long supported a complete ban on high capacity magazines, prohibiting the sale of ammunition over the internet, requiring permits for ammunition purchases, increased penalties on individuals who commit crimes with illegal guns and tracking large transfers of ammunition.

Along with the 74 percent of Long Islanders who favor a more restrictive Assault Weapons Ban and the 72 percent of Long Islanders who favor a ban on high capacity magazines, I will continue to fight against senseless gun violence.

Founded in 1995 by owner Bruce Grossman, the Cultural Arts Playhouse of Plainview is a year round, regional, off-off Broadway-style theater that has produced over 500 productions including educational and touring shows. It is also located in Roslyn Heights and Wantagh.

Named as one of Long Island’s Best Live Theaters, the theater serves more than 20,000 people each year with its professional adult productions, children’s theater performances, and theater education classes for ages 7-18. Artistic Director Tony Frangipane took time out of his busy schedule to talk theater.

There’s no question that Halloween is a holiday for the kids. But what about the kids that can’t enjoy it normally because they have severe allergies? That’s when “The Teal Pumpkin Project” steps in to help.

“The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a fun, positive experience for all,” said Plainview resident Heather Alberti, whose five year old son, Nathan, has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts.
