Winter Safety Tips

While winter can be a wonderful time of year, the cold weather and icy conditions can present challenges and treacherous hazards. Planning for the problems that winter weather poses can help ensure the safety of your family and all Hempstead Town residents this season.

Winterizing your car and equipping it with all-season tires, snow tires or chains are easy precautions you can take to stave off trouble on roads. However, it is best to limit your travel during inclement weather. To avoid unnecessary travel, consider stocking several days’ worth of food in your home so you do not have to grocery shop during icy or snowy conditions.

 

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.
