    Flashback: In October of 1979 Arlington High School in Poughkeepsie lost 5 students in a horrific accident. One student, Terry Painter, was a close friend to one of my 4 brothers. Terry would’ve graduated with my brother in June 1980. My oldest brother was dating Terry’s older sister at the time of the accident. They would end up marrying not long after Terry died. I still regard Terry as my brother-in-law, even if he isn’t here with me. The car was split in half after it struck a tree. The car was visible for all to see. I was only 12 but I rode my bicycle to see it at the Mobil station. I saw blood and smelled death. Then it was in front of the junkyard as you drove towards the high school. Clarkstown should do the same. Place the car in a very visible location. I promise the impact will be great. Alcohol KILLS. Those promoting alcohol at local political events should STOP the practice immediately. It sends a horrible message to our youth, especially when some of the candidates and politicians are cops, ex-cops or spouses of cops. Thank you Anastasia Karassik. You are a courageous soul.

Senator Skoufis Touts $352K in Emergency Response Grants for Rockland County

HAVERSTRAW, NY – Senator James Skoufis touted a $351,925 grant to Rockland County to support its emergency response operations and make critical improvements to 9-1-1 dispatch functions. The funding, announced Friday, will be administered by the State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services.

“Rockland County is more than deserving of this critical funding,” said Senator Skoufis. “Our emergency service providers are on the front lines every day, responding to what may ultimately be life-and-death situations, in often unpredictable circumstances. Improving our communications infrastructure will save more lives while making the work of our dispatchers and first responders faster and more effective.”

“These funds help recipients make important upgrades such as text-to-9-1-1 and implement other next-generation 9-1-1 technology so they’re ready to handle calls for help and to dispatch first responders immediately,” said Patrick A. Murphy, Commissioner of the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services. “Since 2014, the state has distributed approximately $60 million to help our local partners improve their public safety answering point capabilities.”
