DEMOCRATIC PARTY BOSS QUESTIONS DISTRICT ATTORNEYS ACTIONS

LI News Radio: Ronkonkoma, NY (5/13/2014) – Yesterday on the John Gomez Radio Show – Jay Jacobs, Chairman of Nassau County Democratic Party expressed his belief that Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice allowed political power brokers to influence her decision in a criminal case rather than following the law.

Jay Jacobs, Nassau County Democratic Party Chairman, called in Tuesday, May 13, 2014 on the John Gomez Show for LI News Radio 103.9 FM, in order to offer his insight into the recent incident that occurred with a man named Randy White and a decision made by Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice..

Jay Jacobs called into the John Gomez show on 103.9 LI News Radio, and discussed a “poor decision” that was made by Nassau County District Attorney, Kathleen Rice.

When talking to John Gomez about an incident that occurred with a man named Randy White – ¨where he was pulled off a bus by police under the request of an informal leader of a political party… which led to a process that forced the Nassau County Police commissioner to resign, but the district attorney in Nassau County decided not to prosecute due to ¨political pressure¨

In this particular case, under this circumstance, I think she did not act correctly¨ Jacobs told Gomez ¨prosecutors that I talk to in other counties, cannot understand how there wasn’t any other action taken.”

When Gomez asked Jacobs ¨do you believe because she has some ties with this political party she did not act, or did that cloud her Judgment?” Jay response with ¨I would say it clouds a lot of elected officials judgment¨ he continues.. it weighed into it and it would have been wiser for her to ask for a special prosecutor…there comes a time when there is right and wrong and you got to stand up and do something…she made a mistake¨

(HUNTINGTON, N.Y. May 9, 2014) – County Executive Steve Bellone joined the Suffolk County Office of Film and Cultural Affairs and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to unveil the County’s first water quality film contest. The “crapSHOOT Film Contest” is designed to bring awareness to the effects nitrogen pollution has on bays and river corridors as a result of failing septics, cesspools and fertilizers. The contest is part of the Reclaim Our Water initiative, a comprehensive plan presented by County Executive Steve Bellone to eradicate nitrogen pollution.

“It is so important for us to get the word out about our effort to reclaim our water,” said County Executive Bellone. “Municipalities must be creative on ways to raise awareness of the environmental challenges we face. We are confident this film contest will unleash the creativity of our residents on issues related to water quality and nitrogen pollution.”

“I want to commend Suffolk County for its strong commitment to addressing threats and challenges to Long Island’s water,” said Joan Mathews, Director of the Clean Water Division for the EPA. “We’re thrilled at EPA that Suffolk County has taken a creative approach in raising awareness of this issue.”

The film contest is open to all ages and all residents of New York State. Entries will be screened at the Huntington Cinema Arts Centre on September 22. Videos will be judged on creativity and originality, quality, technical accuracy and contest of message. Complete film contest information, entry details and deadlines are located at www.suffolkcountyny.gov/crapshootfilmcontest.

“We’re really delighted to see Suffolk County using film to convey ideas, to galvanize the community, to make people aware of this important issue,” said Dylan Skolnick, co-director of Huntingon’s Cinema Arts Centre. “We’re really looking forward to all of the creative ideas that local filmmakers come up with to illuminate this issue.”

“I would like to thank [Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone] for recognizing the power of film and media to raise awareness about environmental issues,” said Michelle Isabelle-Stark, Director of the Suffolk County Office of Film and Cultural Affairs. “Film has been known to transform behavior and change lives, so it’s a wonderful vehicle to channel our message about water quality.”

CARDIAC QUACKS WIN THRILLER

20140510-072211.jpg

(Central Islip, N.Y., May 9, 2014) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the Lancaster Barnstormers 10-8 on Friday night in the first game of a three-game series at Clipper Magazine Stadium.

Long Island jumped out to an early lead with five runs in the first inning off Lancaster starter Cody Scarpetta. The first six batters of the game reached base safely, highlighted by a RBI double from Lew Ford, a throwing error from Scarpetta which led to a run, a RBI single from Ryan Strieby and a RBI sacrifice fly from Anthony Armenio. The Ducks added two more runs the next inning on a two-run home run from Joash Brodin, his first of the season.

Lancaster did not go down quietly, however. Three-run home runs from Barnstormers outfielders Cole Garner and Blake Gailen off Ducks starter Shaun Garceau brought Lancaster back within one after five innings. Lancaster grabbed an 8-7 lead in the eighth off Jeremy Accardo on a RBI double from Garner and a RBI single from Brock Kjeldgaard.

The Flock responded in the ninth against Barnstormers closer Pete Andrelczyk with three runs to regain the lead for good. Adam Bailey launched a solo home run with one out to tie the game. Five batters later, after Andrelcyzk walked three Ducks batters and was chased from the game, Fehlandt Lentini blooped a two-run, two-out base hit to shallow right field, giving the Ducks the lead for good.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Garceau allowed six runs (all earned) over five innings on seven hits, two walks, and two strikeouts. Scarpetta allowed seven runs (five earned) over five innings on eight hits, three walks and three strikeouts. Jeremy Accardo (3-1) earned the win after working one inning of relief, while Andrelczyk (0-2) took the loss after allowing three runs in two-thirds of an inning. Leo Rosales earned his fifth save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning.

Lentini led the Flock with five hits, one run scored and two RBI while Ford chipped in with two hits, two runs and one RBI.

The Ducks continue their series with Lancaster on Saturday at Clipper Magazine Stadium. Game time is slated for 7:00 p.m. Right-hander Jared Lansford gets the start for the Ducks against Barnstormers righty Brian Grening.
