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.

Cuomo, just a liberal generational political hack...sure he does...load up the big cities with nonRead More working dependent type folks....reward the millions of illegals with citizenship and voting rights and then we have no county left, just big cities sucking the hard working taxpayer dry to pay for their non workers....the gimme mines crowd these liberal dems love to enslave in the vote for welfare check scam these dopes fall for every time.

Steve Israel should be ashamed of himself. Ever since he became head of the DemocraticRead More Congressional Campaign Committee, he has moved further and further left. I cannot believe this man is a suitable representative for the electorate of his district. I look forward to voting for his opponent in November.

I don't understand why there are no north-south routes out here like NY135/SOB expressway, with noRead More freakin' traffic lights every 100 feet. Take Route 51, which travels mostly through farmland, from Moriches to Riverhead and you will stop at lights, where there is one lone car making a turn. Huh? Yeah, at 55 or 60 mph, slam on the brakes! I lived in Nassau County many years and could easily get from Merrick Rd. to Jericho Tpk. in about 20 minutes. Try that here. SOL.
brookhavenconfucius April 10, 2014 at 12:29 pm
THE CORRUPTION IN THIS AREA, IS EXTENSIVE. FOR EXAMPLE, You have Town Traffic Dept. managementRead More employees...PUBLIC EMPLOYEES... 'moonlighting' as consultants with private, traffic design firms...IN PLAIN SIGHT ! And when you make a complaint to the Town about a politically connnected, local business, who contributes to traffic violations, say, and the Town employee alerts the violators to 'back off' for a few days, until the heat cools down, and then it's business as usual. BELIEVE ME, THEY RUN AWAY, when you confront them about it...but that's all that happens...back to bu$ine$$ as U$ual !

Far more children are killed by autos than by handguns or even homocide in general.Read More (http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/what-kills-kids/ ) We must crack down now on ALL convicted persons who have "violent" convictions in their past, from having the right to ever drive a car again. Let's keep their hands off of any steering wheel. An automobile in the hands of such people are like guided missiles. Let's do it for the children!
CAPICU April 4, 2014 at 09:49 am

Justin Thyme April 5, 2014 at 07:44 am
The proposed law is proper and should pass. If Republicans could just soften somewhat on gun issues,Read More they would hold every office in this country. I have plenty of issues with Steve Israel and will NOT vote for him, but he did get this proposal right.

Once again another law just like the layers of overlapping gun control that will be circumvented. IfRead More people want to get something or do something they will do it. As we have seen laws mean nothing to non-law abiding individual's, whether its smoking, drinking or illegally possessing and or using a weapon to commit a crime. All this grandstanding by Politian's is just that grandstanding.

We had MAJOR gas shortages and lines in Long Island after Hurricane Sandy. Like him or not, Gov.Read More Christie initiated odd/even days in NJ and the shortage ended. A few days later King Andy copied Gov. Christie and our lines also went away. We need leadership, not wealthy copy cats who act like a king. I luv NY, but I don't luv King Andy. Also we need term limits in both the NY & Federal senate/house.

Hop aboard the LIRR and visit the Met or MOMA. You can easily spend an entire day at either ofRead More them. Another good trip in nice weather if Fort Tryon and the Cloisters, with lunch or dinner at the New Leaf Restaurant in Fort Tryon Park. Or go downtown, take a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. Or check out Battery Park, or rent a bicycle and ride up from the Battery to the GW Bridge along the Hudson River, turn around and pedal to Central Park, drop off the bike, take the subway to Penn and the LIRR. The last one we did was the 911 Memorial, Trinity Church & Cemetery, the NYSE, the Federal Building (where Washington was sworn-in as President and where the Bill of Rights was written; cap off this trip with a meal at Fraunces Tavern.

G~ you mentioned Don Monti but what about the other 3 who are actually running the show inRead More Huntington Station. Where does Ryan Porter, Brandon Palanker and Sean McLean live? They are the ones running Source the Station. Don Monti is just the figure head of the umbrella Renaissance. Sure they filled the office with one local girl of each color (white, black and Hispanic) just to be politically correct but where do the puppet masters live?
G February 26, 2014 at 11:58 am
I know that Ryan Porter is a former Wall St. guy, so he lives somewhere very nice as well, IRead More suppose. Sean McLean has a connection to Flanders on the South Fork, which is not a ritzy area. Brandon Palanker is a Glen Cove guy, I think.
