Anna Kovarick sold heroin in between picking up and dropping off kids at school, officials say.

Pat is a moron- to even post that response shows how stupid she is. Gee- maybe I should a rob aRead More bank, because its a tough economic environment? Can't blame her? How about instead of selling illegal drugs, maybe go to night school and get a degree, to educate yourself. NO- that is too easy right? let's sell drugs. Go to jail and rot.

Sad part some lawyer will plea the counts down , she will get timed served and probation will be outRead More by mothers day .if we want to put a stop to dealers make dealing heroin a min 25 year sentence . But im prob naive it probably still wont be a deterrent.

The following comments are not meant to be construed as being an advocate for teen /under agedRead More drinking, just a personal observation: 1-When I was in HS in the 70s kids aged 13-18 were drinking in their own homes or in parks while parents were out for the eve or weekend. Nothing has changed much there, IMO. 2- my mid + 20 something kids have told me stories of parties in HS where the parents were not only home, but would buy beer & hard liquor (multiple flavored vodkas) for huge parties for their kids & their friends. They would sometimes party with the under aged teens as well. ( not one of my kids were "allowed" to drink before 21 yrs old. Nor in my home, nor at family functions. I wasn't with them every moment of the day to enforce this.) This is nothing new & if you think it is you are delusional. There are good & bad parenting styles. 3- I was once shown Facebook pictures of a 16 yr old local boy loading a few cases of beer onto a party bus for Jr Prom, using a dolly, so tell me that the bus driver was unaware. Perhaps stiffer penalties are needed for the bus drivers, to include the bus company and check ladies purses for drugs & booze smuggled in. Again, some parents are real a------- when it comes to this but some of us are responsible and teach their kids hoping & praying that they do the right thing despite peer pressure. 4- all of my children use taxi service, designated drivers or the train when they wish to drink legally (mid to upper 20s). They were taught at an early age never to get into a car with anyone they felt may have been impaired and so far have called me on 2 occasions to come get them at 2 or 3 am when this was so. God willing they will stay safe. Parents are the first line of defense, but stiffer laws are needed for bus companies & idiot parents who think it's a right of passage. Talk to your local elected officials!

You want the drivers eyes on the road or eyes on the kids. Let the parents pat down the kids beforeRead More they get on the bus. Leave the driver alone

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.

They [not all but some] pull people over for bullshit and pull the power trip on innocent individuals who truly made mistakes or non-threatening/harmful offenses.

James Barrett may have a point, they were being safeish. Imagine if they rented vans or somethingRead More and were driving themselves under the influence? It isn't cheap to rent a coach bus and I have to believe parents put up the money for this. The parents should be held accountable first if they paid for it and not accompanying the children. Parents should also be held more accountable for the actions of children 21 and younger. Many people bring children into this world and assume no responsibility, this must change.
John Roberson April 24, 2014 at 12:04 am
and none of the teens were charged? That is outrageous. The little darlings probably brought theirRead More own booze on to the bus and drank and then trashed the bus and the driver is the scapegoat. Of course, the driver should never have let these children on the bus in the first place, but maybe they bribed him or maybe they threatened him or his family. No telling what kids will do today to get what they want.

Hahaha yeah, trust me I'm not naive enough to believe that i would have actually gotten the 5kRead More reward. Regardless i would've called it in if they hadn't caught the guy already. News 12 said he was taking A 'selfie' in the halls. It was some sort of a game in his eyes. I would assume comparable to how a graffiti artist leaves him mark on hard to reach buildings. Crazy lol

Archie Bunker- I think you need to take a refresher math course. They wanted to sell the stock inRead More 2010, and contacted the police in 2011. Not sure how your math turned that into "2 years to report it" Taking into account that different years can be as little as one day apart, and I'm sure they spent some time waiting for the nonexistent check to arrive, and trying to get in touch with him. So the only remarkable thing about that is your math skills, or lack of.

It's sickening to know that the sex offender registry allows offenders to have facebook accountsRead More just as long as they're reported. It just reassures me how messed up this world,state,government really is. Sex offenders should not be placed in areas where families with little children live in and should not be allowed to have access to any sort of social media. They should be isolated from communities that house little children and have 24 hour supervision to monitor what they are doing minute by minute but then again would moron cuomo really supply the money for that sort of safety. None of my children will have facebook accounts while they're younger than 17.
