This will be useful if there are any soccer Mom's rolling through stop signs at the religiousRead More services. That's the Nassau County Police wheelhouse. Protect/serve not so much.

People should not be able to to make salacious comments, here, without identifying themselves andRead More their connection (if any) to the events in question. Readers need to be cautious about believing or buying-in to those comments posted by people who most likely don't know "Jack".
Ralph Cavaliere March 31, 2014 at 09:24 am
To Christopher Wendt, Where did "Jack" say anything salacious in his comments on theRead More Hofstra student's death? ALL avenues of the cause of death should be explored...A young man, not yet in his prime, is a most unusual death. As far as I'm concerned, suicide is a criminal act as is homicide. It is still killing someone, even if self inflicted.....By the way, salacious is the wrong word to use in your point of view. I see nothing "salty" in his comments.

In this day and age this should not have happened.Infection control which this falls under should beRead More strictly followed. In order to maintain your nursing license every four years a nurse nurse must take an infection control course. An investigation should be done and this nurse should be reported to the New York State Office of the Professions for professional misconduct. No magnetic status should be given to this hospital.American Nurse Credential Center should be informed. Stay strong folks and be positive. Good luck to all. Berlin m.Brown, RN.

Dee March 13, 2014 at 09:34 am
The news is making her seem as if she was "living a lie", and all I was trying to say isRead More that skipping school and not telling your parents is COMPLETELY normal. I myself was skipping college classes as a 20 year old and I didn't want my parents to know about it. This doesn't mean that she was a deceitful person. May she rest in peace.
LS March 13, 2014 at 01:26 pm
This is so sad. I had hoped they would find her staying with someone her family didn't know, andRead More she would be returned safely home. The parking lot at that location might not be empty at night because there is a car rental business there, I believe. Still, I should think the police would wait to state a cause of death until there was a medical examiner's determination. Rest in peace.

Any actions of harassment to the women will always consider as being disrespectful. Women also mustRead More be responsible of they act or what they ware so that they will not experience this kind of thing that will feel them like being disrespected by men or even other people around them. Keep safe and protected let us bring protection with us specially to our kids give them the safety all they need where ever they are we don't know what will happen next let us be responsible all the time check this out at http://bit.ly/1nctEuL.
Massa March 4, 2014 at 03:30 pm
This patch sucks. The real patch writers tell it how it is..... With real names and descriptions. IRead More want real facts and know what is going on in my community. These Mutts live on Kenwood ave in East Massapequa..... Near that problem block Clicks Blvd. if you look at crime in Massapequa, most of it is in that area. It is very sad that the decent people that do live there have to live next to scum like this. That area has been in the news for incidents involving drugs, guns and shots fired by police at these mutts. Enough is enough already. We live here and these mutts need to go. They don't take care of their kids, property.... No respect or morals what do ever.
Massa March 4, 2014 at 03:38 pm
The 7th precinct needs to hold community meetings so things can be discussed. That is how things getRead More done and good areas don't fall to crap. We pay way to much money in taxes to live here and have to deal with garbage like this living so close. I was raised here and it was a good safe area with a lot of police officers calling it home. It has good hard working people who take care of their homes and have pride. Now we have things like this happening much to often. NC police helicopters are always over our town these days. Now it is time to do something about where we all live.

middle class welfare is what you are taking about. You just don't know it. The budget (money spentRead More for your taxes) on the "welfare" is spent mostly on the middle class. The media invents this image of "people" living large and doing nothing to earn, you go for it like a hook line and stinker. You guys vote to cut the "welfare budget". You vote against yourselves and you don't know it. Education is a wonderful thing, There is a reason it costs so much. It's really worth it. Wish you all the best.

Selina: The mother would say because Republicans are holding her, as a woman, back she has to workRead More three jobs and doesn't have the time to monitor her daughter. It is always someone elses fault.

@BP mom re: "For a super who's only been here a year, he's not making responsible, educatedRead More decisions if you ask me!" I assure you the Super's decisions are both reasonable and educated; they just don't agree with the Group Think of you and the other moms you talked to. You termed his decision yesterday a "very bad decision"; what were the actual results that proved "very bad"? There were none. ....................................................................................................... The Superintendent, in consultation with the Board of Education makes decisions about opening, closing, or delaying school in the face of inclement weather. They are authorized to do that. You, as a parent, make decisions about your own children. In my opinion, which does not count in this at all, is that your decision to keep your kids home was probably the worse of the two decisions made in reaction to yesterday's storm. But those are your kids and you are their mom. They missed a day of school but they stayed home safe and warm. I am sure you know that life is not all safe, and toasty warm; your kids will eventually learn that as well, just not yet.
BP mom February 16, 2014 at 09:37 pm
I wish I was such an analytical genius as you Christopher, thank you for dissecting my comments soRead More we can all have a clear picture. You can add some facts: at the time we were expected to drive our kids to school, because our district does NOT provide buses, snow was falling at a rate of 1" per 20 minutes with golf ball sized snowflakes, to quote the newsman on channel 12, and we could barely see across the street. Plus our street was nowhere to be found under the 8-10" of snow because the plows couldn't keep up. Doesn't sound very responsible and educated to me to expected children and staff to come out in that and our governor agrees as he declared a state of emergency. But again thank you for helping clarify my comment with your expertise as I'm sure you not only live and was present in blue point during the storm but you are a meteorologist also!
Christopher Wendt February 17, 2014 at 08:21 am
Yours was a personal decision for the safety of your own children. Many people across the state wereRead More confronted with that decision this month. Some, like yourself, opted to keep their kids home. Others sent or brought their kids to school, some came later, etc. Those districts that opted not to close were roundly criticized by those parents who kept their kids home, which is understandable. Many parents who took their kids to school also criticized the decision makers. Such is the nature of these things. As Governor Cuomo said to Mayor De Blasio who was being blasted for keeping The City schools open, "That's life. Welcome the The Job!"
