The worst part is, now, for the second time in how many years, the tax payers are going to wasteRead More money defending against this lawsuit (some guy wanted athe1st or something a while back) Fire the nit-witts who are doing these veto's so that we can save their salaries and the legal costs and put it towards our sadly lacking educational system. I'll bet this employee only had half day public kindergarten and no public preschool. (ok, off topic rant, but c'mon!!!)
Charlie Starr April 20, 2014 at 12:18 am
Well" just remember. There aren't any Athiests in a fox hole! Anyone who has been in combat canRead More tell you that. These Athiest's fail to understand that God is real. They are taught this nonsense in the ultra liberal left wing nut job Universities. We actually pay these people to teach this stuff. The next time you need an Exorcist done, who are you going to call?? Oh and remember, a liberalism is a mental disorder. Check out Michael Savage's book. You may learn something.
Testy McTesterson April 20, 2014 at 05:40 am
Atheists do serve in combat (I know a few). Or is your argument that God is simply what we call ourRead More fear of death? Not very impressive, is it? And isn't Michael Savage the gay-basher who late in life admitted he was just ashamed he had the hots for his fellow male sailors back in the Navy? Conservatism is all hypocrisy, no brains, no heart.

If he was serious, it should have been the 20th floor.

He most likely could have bungie jumped with his own unit.

Perhaps it was a failed circumcision/ bungee jump?

I love the people who have nothing to add to the conversation so they throw either Obama or gunRead More control in. Either subject are worth debating at another time. But this conversation has nothing to do with either.

Hospital workers and Visitors need to remind themselves to wash their hands and not to bringRead More anything that may be unsanitary to a hospital.A Patient in a hospital may have an immune system working overtime and fighting to keep its body healthy. A patient can be the host to the germ or the parasitic organism. The infectious agent can be deadly and has the ability to spread from person to person.Parasitic organism are constantly evolving and are able to overwhelm our defenses.Maintaining a hospital clean does help ,however will this be enough to stop the spread of deadly viruses within our hospitals and our society in general?

It would also help if doctors in hospitals did not wear ties or white lab coats that are a hugeRead More spreader of infections.

I feel sorry for the person that died, but I see it all the time, whether it's in Halesite or up inRead More Huntington Station, people just walk out into the street on NY Ave like they own the road. Especially by all the Bodegas. People hanging out drinking and then darting into the road. Not sure what happened in this case.
Ann Darcy April 19, 2014 at 12:16 pm
A man is killed in Halesite and the above poster drags in bodegas, the Station and drunks. Hard toRead More see the connection there. If you are not sure what happened, what's the purpose of your comment?
CAPICU April 19, 2014 at 04:35 pm
Chrissy F...I'm with you on that .The police department needs to enforce Jaywalking Laws.The area inRead More Huntington Station you mention is an area just waiting for another accident to happen.Often you find drunk man standing in the middle of the road and people running across the street showing no regard for their safety and others. Police and Fire department only show up to clean up the carnage after the accident,but no enforcement of the jaywalking laws is ever enforced.The only thing they do is give tickets to anyone driving in that area for a day or two.I do regret what happened to Mr. Jose Lucero and do not accuse him of being reckless or at fault for the tragedy inflicted upon him.

RON Ostrodamus April 19, 2014 at 03:11 am
The death penalty certainly cuts down on the record number of incarcerations in America. Enough ofRead More this liberal crap on humane punishment. The word "humane' never enters the minds of these cold blooded killers. What is going to happen if another bombing takes place outside of Texas? What is going to happen with the next airplane hijacking, or Boston?

Roll Back Our Tax April 18, 2014 at 07:31 am
So this means we can continue to over tax the "wealthy" home owners and borrow more $ at aRead More lower rate instead of getting spending which includes salaries, benefits and pensions under control? Only in Huntington can you have a wide variance of assessments and an assessor that won't deal with the facts. Need a reassessment done.
Andrew Scott April 18, 2014 at 03:21 pm
Sorry, Mike. Wrong again. It would indeed be different if the flag in question were a swaztika, forRead More swaztikas are MUCH more widely understood for the symbol that they are. From very early on in New York - and I assume for the rest of the country - Swaztikas are understood - without question - to be symbols of death, genocide, and the Holocaust. (And please don't bring up the Jains of India.) IF the student in question had brandished a flag with a swastika, an appropriate punishment would indeed be a short suspension. I would NOT consider throwing the student out, however, unless he were also found guilty of verbal or physically harassing students, or inciting violence on campus. I WOULD hold a administrative hearing where all involved parties would be present. And then I would demand an apology from the student, one private to the school leaders, and then one made publicly to the student body. I would also make sure that the student UNDERSTOOD WHY what he did was wrong. Some sort of community service or charitable work may also be added to the penalty. This kind of response would be much more of a service to the current (former) student. It is healthier solution, and in the long run, would do far greater good than the present unforgiving, unyieldingly abhorrent alternative.

Andrew Scott, you are spot on.
Chuck W. April 19, 2014 at 12:11 am
First off, if these kids were star football players, they would not have been expelled (editor'sRead More note: I went to Chaminade, and they pretty much always beat us). One of the things a private catholic school education is supposed to drive home is a broad knowledge of social contexts and a general sense of maturity and decorum.....this act was a complete lack of that. If anything it shows that these kids were complete knuckleheads that probably shouldn't have even made it to senior year. That said, the confederate flag, regardless of your beliefs is a legal act of free speech, just as it is to desecrate a crucifix. Kids have gotten less severe punishments for far worse behavior. A stiff suspension, ban from the prom or graduation would have been fine, maybe a message to the students. This punishment is knee jerk and reactionary.....If the Bro. Cregan's students are truly living the catholic faith, they will heal and forgive...but give them that chance.
WCSC screen grab shows charges against worker.
Igor April 19, 2014 at 09:39 am
HF the charges were dropped. There is a problem because and I quote from the Patch"Lewis saysRead More he never noticed "No Free Re-Fill" signs and admits he had refilled his drink without paying on other occasions" and "On-site construction worker Chris Lewis told WCSC News he didn't know refills at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston weren't free."Where did you read that he knew he had to pay for it? No where in the article does he said he knew it.

The last time I paid for a drink at costco was probably before the terrorists attacked us on 9-11. What's the big deal here, it's only soda? If this guy wants free drinks, it's none of your business, and non of the business of that nosey cop neither. You people don't get it, it's flat out entrapment by having the soda available. What's next, you expect me not to use my dead sister's handicap placard too?
