    Man hit by vandals after helping Sandy cleanup Art McFarland, 1202/2012HUNTINGTON (WABC) -- Paul Nosak, a tree-servicer owner says he had always dreamed of bringing his company to New York and making a difference. Nosak was part of a clean-up outside the Huntington Baptist Church, where several huge trees had fallen on the roof. A local tree service originally said that the removal of the trees would have to wait until January...Nosak then saw the damage as he passed through the neighborhood by chance. He then walked into the church to offer his immediate services...A team of eight workers joined...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 11/30/2012 | Scott DiSavino
    New York energy regulators told power companies in New York City to develop plans to keep the lights on in the Big Apple in case the giant Indian Point nuclear power plant, which supplies about a quarter of the city's electricity, is forced to shut down. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wants the two reactors at Indian Point shut when their operating licenses expire in 2013 and 2015 in part because the nuclear plant is located in the New York metropolitan area, home to some 19 million people. The governor has said even the most unlikely possibility of an accident...

    Vote Tally Error Adds to Maffei’s Lead in Congressional Race Posted on November 8, 2012 by Dave Bullard A clerk’s election night typo in Cayuga County was fixed Wednesday, giving Democrat Dan Maffei an extra 2,000 vote margin in his bid to return to Congress. Cayuga County Elections Commissioner Kate Lacey said a clerk mistyped the amount of votes cast for Republican incumbent Ann Marie Buerkle in the town of Brutus. Fixing the error and cleaning up a few other minor math issues resulted in a swing of 1,997 votes in Maffei’s direction, giving him an almost-unbeatable hold on the...

    A FEMA disaster recovery center in a Hurricane Sandy-ravaged corner of Staten Island that was supposed to provide shelter, food and assistance to hurricane victims Wednesday morning went MIA, posting a sign saying that they were closed due to the approaching nor’easter. A printed paper sign taped to the front door of on the center at 6581 Hylan Blvd. at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday read “FEMA Center Closed Due to Weather.” The front doors of the disaster recovery center, which is housed inside the Mount Lorretto Catholic Youth Organization, were unlocked, but there was no staff anywhere in sight for at...

    The disgusting, lynch mob mentality that has arisen from the Trayvon Martin shooting case places us several notches towards race riots this summer. To the balanced observer, Zimmerman really does appear to have likely shot Martin in self defense. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and Barack Hussein Obama started babbling before all the facts were in. These collectivist droids seldom retreat from any lie ... they simply magnify it further. If George Zimmerman is acquitted the fuse will light. Remember Rodney King? If you live in an urban environment, don't be stupid. Pay attention! -------------------------cut-------------------------- EXTRA - 10/31/12 watch the...
  • NYS Board Of Elections: It’s Possible Voting May Be Permitted Beyond Tuesday

    11/03/2012 7:30:28 AM PDT · by tsowellfan · 28 replies
    New York state law allows for an extra day of voting if turnout is drastically suppressed because of a natural disaster like Superstorm Sandy. That could potentially postpone state, congressional and even presidential election results beyond Tuesday’s Election Day. State Board of Elections spokesman John Conklin confirmed Friday that the law permits election commissioners to create a second day of voting if the turnout in any county is less than 25 percent of the total number of registered voters...

    While watching television Friday evening, I was shocked to see my state’s junior senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, in a campaign ad. After all, this is New York and she’s a Democrat, which translates into anonymity for her opponent and her enjoyment of about an 87 point lead in the polls (okay, I lied; it’s only 43), and air time in NY’s market is pricey. Perhaps, I thought, she just wanted a tax write-off or vanity compelled her to put her face on TV. Then again, maybe she just wanted to see how many elements of propaganda could fit into a 30-second...

    RUSH: ABC on Good Morning America today actually said they've got a poll, eight out of ten approve of Obama's handling. Well, I've got some sound bites from people from Staten Island and from Queens. They're not happy up there. In fact, this is gonna get worse -- much worse -- before it gets better, and now they're gonna run the New York marathon. Do you know what Bloomberg's doing? They are kicking refugees, essentially, out of hotels to make room for people coming into town for the marathon. "Well, we need the money! Oh, yeah, we need the economic...

    Gov. Cuomo said the gas crisis caused by Superstorm Sandy should ease now that the Coast Guard has lifted the tanker restrictions in the harbor.Cuomo during a pre-taped interview with Sirius/XM radio, said the Coast Guard closed New York Harbor because containers blew off ships that could cause navigation and other problems, including hull breaches.That kept gas tankers from coming to New York City.On Thursday, the restrictions were lifted, Cuomo said."The fuel situation should be abated soon," he said.He warned against price gauging, saying the Attorney General's Office will prosecute anyone who does.Cuomo during the interview said he has to...

    In an act of sheer idiocy, Mayor Michael Bloomberg decided that the New York City Marathon should still be held. His decision comes despite the fact that the city is still struggling to recover from “Superstomr Sandy.” We’re talking about a city where children are dumpster diving for food, yet the Mayor thinks an event where out of town runners trot through storm damaged boroughs while being handed free energy bars and water is a good idea? The marathon will kick off in Staten Island where bodies are still being pulled from the rubble. The marathon is still a go,...

    Drivers and homeowners scrambled to secure fuel for their cars and generators in the U.S. Northeast on Wednesday as storm-hit gasoline stations started to run dry. More than half of all gasoline service stations in the New York City area and New Jersey were shut because of depleted fuel supplies and power outages, frustrating attempts to restore normal life, industry officials said. Reports of long lines, dark stations and empty tanks circulated across the region. Some station owners were unable to pump fuel due to a lack of power, while others quickly ran their tanks dry because of increased demand...

    This week financial news organization CNBC gave some mainstream attention to the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History, in which “Banksters” and their U.S. racketeering partners are being accused of laundering of 43 trillion dollars worth of ill gotten gains. The lawsuit is said to involve officials located in the highest offices of government and the financial sector. Since this information was surprisingly revealed by the mainstream news organization there has been a very suspicious and deadly fallout at the CNBC headquarters. Within hours the original page for the article was taken down, and CNBC senior...

Or the way some in the parish are so moved they just can’t stand another moment of joy, and simply walk...

    A spokeswoman for Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill’s re-election campaign told The Daily Caller that the senator and her husband first learned the criminal background of the man speaking out McCaskill’s husband’s business dealings from The New York Times. McCaskill spokeswoman Caitlin Legacki told TheDC on Friday that she thinks McCaskill and her husband Joseph Shepard discovered Craig Woods’ criminal background “[w]hen the New York Times told me in June that he’s a felon.” TheDC reported Thursday that Woods, a former employee of Shepard’s, alleged in a 2011 audiotape that Shepard used the U.S. Senate dining room to cut business...
