I’m like many people in our county who pours over nutrition labels on all the food I buy. I want to know exactly what it is I’m eating, and more importantly, how many calories I’m consuming. As the American Heart Association will tell you, calories “in” should equal calories “out” if you want to maintain your current weight. Our diet should be equivalent to our physical activity. But if we don’t know what we’re eating, how are we to know how many laps to walk around the neighborhood?
Senator Craig M. Johnson, (D-Nassau), has been ranked as one of the senators with the highest number of bills that passed the chamber during this last legislative session, according to an analysis released by the New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG).
Obviously the citizens of 1776 had had enough. Their government ruled through absolute tyranny. Taxation was completely overbearing, justice absent and the people oppressed. Who knows by what courage a leadership council arose to defy their masters and by what loyalty a people followed. It is a rare and precious thing.
Since the beginning of this year over 1,000 Hicksville residents have called for an EMS response to their home or business. The Hicksville Fire Department (HFD) has responded to 616 of these calls, 122 (20 percent) of which were necessitated because “No Nassau County ambulance was available.”

New York State Senator Craig M. Johnson, (D-Nassau) urged Governor Paterson to sign landmark legislation that will bring unprecedented scrutiny and accountability to New York’s authority system.

Important legislation that will improve access to affordable health insurance for young adults between the ages of 19 and 29 recently passed the Senate and has been signed into law by Governor David Paterson.
If you drive a car, you will pay more to get or renew your license and register the vehicle. If you own a boat, an ATV or other vehicle, it will cost you more not only to register them, but to transport them as well, as fees on trailers will go up.
The motor vehicle fee hikes will hit Long Islanders the hardest because cars are not a luxury, they are an everyday necessity. People depend on them to get to work, go to school, shop and get around their communities. I voted against every one of these tax and fee increases. New Yorkers clearly have had enough.”
