Kinda shocked at this. Are people asleep? Businesses flocking out of state, taking jobs with themRead More to the south because of the poor business environment. Taxes are amongst the highest in the country, schools in the big cities are crapholes, etc. Is it simply the free birth control that keeps people voting for Governor Fredo? I'd really love to understand this.
West Islip Resident July 10, 2014 at 09:43 pm
Unbelievable, the people on NY cant possibly want more of the Cuomo empire. If he is reelected, theRead More failure of NY business's, our economy, health and safety will rank the worst in the nation for ever.

Geri, they can't be replaced. They are governed by the Railway Labor Act. If you haven't gotten aRead More raise in seven years, maybe you should put in a resume with the railroad. A little envious of better career choices perhaps?

I know an LIRR engineer that left a job as an airline first officer to be an engineer......becauseRead More the pay was better !
Eddie July 10, 2014 at 08:58 pm
Pretty responsible position. The contract that the Mediation Board suggested sounds very fair,Read More especially in light of the huge raises the MTA gave their managers and cops.

IF he did not leave the scene their would of been NO crime. A fellow civil servant, such as thisRead More retired police officer, would not panic, render first aid, call 911 at least and be a man about what he was doing the hours before this tragic accident. Good research by the District Attorney.

and it was a Friday night, construction crews do not leave their barrels out over the weekend onRead More busy roads

Organized Religion pimps a god and hustles sin for coin. It is Big Business. Eliminate all taxRead More breaks for these Crime Families, pulpit jockies, MegaChurchatoriums and crystal cathedrals. When the debris clears, what is left will be of genuine worth, and pleasing to The Cosmos.

When you download the app take a look at all the access to your device the app (7-11) will have. YouRead More may want to reconsider. The DD and 7-11 apps are two of most egregious privacy offenders I've seen yet. As the saying goes ... there is no such thing as a free lunch.
After another baby dies after being left in a hot car, a mother recounts a mistake that might have cost her daughter's life.

Get an abortion, kill an innocent person-to-be, fine. Leave a helpless child to die, so sorry, I'm aRead More woman, not my fault. It's amazing how many females get away for crimes that would land a typical man in jail. War on Women, NOT! Do overs, yes, and yes again. When will these childish, stupid femmes grow up and really care about their creations? In suburbia, not anytime soon...

You carry the child for nine months and as a mother you forget your child give me a Flippin break IRead More can't have kids and people are just letting their boil to death in car really pisses me off
Deerfield Resident July 10, 2014 at 11:02 pm
Rebecca, you said something about people are distracted and make mistakes ....yeah he wasRead More distracted ....the ugly looking moron was sexting (spelling) other women while his kid was dying...dying at the hands of his selfish father and cowardly mother....if the women he was communicating with could only see him! Yeah you get ripped for looking stupid and fat if you do something like this because people want to identify him with something ugly. We as a society have to have stern consequences for people like this....an eye for an eye...put them in a hot car and air it on Saturday night!

I have to believe if the driver was not drunk, he/she would have stopped. We're reading about theseRead More hit and runs almost daily. Makes me sick. :(
Get Off My Lawn July 10, 2014 at 12:40 pm
I think some of them must be so drunk that they truly don't know they hit a person. Of course othersRead More do.
Archie Bunker July 10, 2014 at 03:32 pm
Even if they were drunk, I still think they'd feel the thump thump

@ Eddie re: "No law against leaving your car door unlocked." There is always Darwin's Law,Read More and, Murphy's Law. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Then there is the concept of an "attractive nuisance", which could apply if you left your car unlocked and then some youth got into it and got hurt, or, hurt someone else.

This headline is ridiculously sensationalistic. The request is reasonable -- to simply provideRead More information on how much added sugar a packaged food contains.

I still don't know why the good people on the east end are paying a MTA tax; there's no trainRead More service to speak of out here. Where do we even start to protest all the assaults of our government.

Long Beach firemen are a good bunch. Nice that we live in a community that can support theseRead More services. What are they going to do with that nest when the City cuts down that sycamore? Looks like about 95% are being clear-cut. Think the thieves running this place have a heart for baby birds? Yea, sure.
Bob West July 10, 2014 at 05:42 pm
Maybe Long Beach would be the ideal place for the mythical "tree museum." We need touristRead More attractions, this would be a nice change from the usual beachy Wax Museum. Guess we'll see a lot more tree pictures before they cut them all down. For the sake of equality, they still need to rescue cats, maybe a squirrel or two. At least the squirrels can make new homes in the attics of all the empty stores. Great point, Eddie.

Need motivation to quit? Park in front of a liquor store around 5:15PM on a weekday. Notice whoRead More walks in and out. Depressed, unhealthy, baggy eyed, alcoholics. Losers. You want to be like them? They don't drink because they're depressed. They're depressed because they drink.
Ken Lewis July 10, 2014 at 12:50 am
The thing I find interesting is women are dead set against people that smoke but the major majorityRead More of them drink regularly. I suppose they justify it because booze won't give them lung cancer. So who cares about liver cancer, hardening of the arteries, heart disease, kidney failure, abdominal and bowel cancer and a permanent lose of thousands of brain cells with each drink. I have yet to see one report of a driver under the influence of nicotine killing anyone while driving. So heres lookin at ya drink up and put that cigarette out before ya kill somebody with second hand smoke and just use a car.
Theresa Martello July 9, 2014 at 06:20 pm
It's a shame, however there should be something more then a slap on the wrist done. This is not aRead More disease as someone mentioned above, it is greed and selfishness at its best... Cancer is a disease, that would be someone I feel sorry for, not someone living the high life at little children's expenses. I do feel for his family.

Throw that bastard in jail for at least 10 yrs . And take his house in Rockville centre and give theRead More proceeds to the special needs children. Throw his wife and kids out ( if he's married and have kids ) in the street to cause I'm sure they all had a good time from the stolen money.

Chris- I was speaking in general ....on parenting....never said she was " Our"child norRead More that "WE" did anything wrong.. I was commenting and expressing My opinions on the topic of responsible parenting... & that As parents in general OUR children need to be protected and kept safe.... As parents it is OUR responsibility to keep them safe.. perhaps got an issue with that too? However you are 100% correct this is "their" kid, "their" rules "their" parenting skills etc.. and for the record IMHO they dropped the ball .......BIG TIME....... but hey that's me .. AND my OPINION...
Christopher Wendt July 10, 2014 at 02:18 pm
Okay, Lorraine, you are certainly entitled to have and to express your opinion. As far as theRead More rectitude of the subject parenting skills, there is a Latin phrase I would apply to evaluate the results or outcomes here: res ipsa loquitur, meaning, "things speak for themselves".
