Planning: Community By Community

What motivates people to action, to make changes for the better? There’s the annual New Year’s resolution. There are tragedies and scares. There are new ideas and innovations. And there is the power of a movement, like-minded people joining together to make change.

The Need for Safe and Drug-Free School Funding


“For the last year, I have been working with my colleagues in Congress and the Administration to avert drastic school safety cuts the president proposed in his 2010 budget. Sadly, a few weeks ago, it was officially reported that Long Island schools will lose more than $1.5 million next year because of the elimination of the state grants portion of the Safe and Drug-Free School (SDFS) program. I am greatly concerned by these cuts and have formally asked the Administration to provide an explanation for the cuts and what they plan to do to assist our schools to provide a safe zone for our children.

The searing images of suffering and loss in Haiti have saddened the world. The monster quake, which has shaken the impoverished nation to its foundations, has entombed thousands under mountains of rubble while pulverizing airports, roads and communication systems. Assistance crawls at a snail’s pace and the fear that thirst, hunger and disease could ignite another human catastrophe becomes more ominous with every passing hour.

It was one big mess. From such lofty aspirations and grand beginnings it had sadly come to this: states circulated a dozen different currencies, most of which had little value; neighboring states taxed each other’s goods and state legislatures refused to pay the ballooning debts they had incurred during the eight-year Revolutionary War. Worst of all, citizens began taking matters in their own hands by taking up arms against duly authorized governmental bodies. This was no less than insurrection and the fragile union of states trembled at the prospect of dissolution just three years after the Peace Treaty of Paris secured their separation from Great Britain as an independent nation.
