The power supply portion of electric bills will jump 27 percent in November following a 24 percent increase last month as LIPA and PSEG Long Island work to recover prior months’ undercollections.
The increase will add about $15.30 to average bills. The power supply charge will jump to 9.34 cents a kilowatt hour from 7.36 cents. LIPA said most of the 2 cent per kilowatt hour increase in the charge was attributable to under-collections from previous months.
At a trustees meeting Thursday, LIPA officials said the utility was $133 million over budget on fuel and purchased power costs for the year. Chief financial officer Tom Falcone said the utility also is dealing with $38 million in lower electric sales this year following a cooler summer and that LIPA’s cash position was lower than projected. As a result, LIPA will move up to this month a $675 million debt offering originally planned for early next year

Embattled slugger Alex Rodriguez is back with the New York Yankees. His one-year drug suspension officially expired with the end of the World Series on Wednesday.

“A-Rod” has been taken off baseball’s restricted list and reinstated to the Yankees’ 40-man roster. The 39-year-old missed all of last season while serving a suspension for his role in the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug scandal.

Rodriguez has three years and 61-million-dollars left on his contract.

A Hempstead teaching assistant is accused of stealing close to 12-hundred dollars in grant money set aside for pre-K students.

Sirlentor Berry has been indicted on charges of grand larceny, attempted grand larceny, and official misconduct. Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice says in January, Berry showed up at the AMC Raceway 10 Theater in Westbury with a check from the school district that was intended to cover the attendance of pre-K students and chaperones. To make up for the absences, the theater issued a cash refund to Berry, who allegedly never returned it to the district. He’s suspected of trying to pull a similar scam in March but was unable to obtain a refund.

Berry is due back in court next month and could receive up to four years in prison.

A doctor and a former psychiatrist in Nassau are accused of selling prescriptions pills.
Prosecutors say Marshall Hubsher, along with Dr. Howard Mahler, conspired to sell prescription drugs such as Xanax and Adderall. They say the pair was working out of the same office building in Roslyn where Hubsher used to have a well-respected psychiatrist practice.
Hubsher, 62, was accused of raping one of his patients inside his office two years ago, forcing him to surrender his license to practice medicine. Prosecutors say the latest incident is his fifth arrest.
Hubsher’s attorney says his client denies the allegations against him and claims there is no proof that Hubsher did anything illegal.

Nassau lawmakers unanimously passed an amended $2.9 billion budget for 2015 without increasing taxes, as was proposed by County Executive Ed Mangano earlier this year.
The budget calls for recovering the value of bond premiums and restructuring debt. It also slashes $50,000 in funds for a Freeport food pantry, one of Nassau’s largest.
In a letter to lawmakers sent Tuesday, NIFA head Jon Kaiman threatened to cut $31 million from the county’s budget if lawmakers didn’t approve a 3.1 percent property tax hike.
Nassau Legislature Presiding Officer Norma Gonsalves (R – East Meadow) says a tax hike was not necessary and that the budget can be balanced with a much smaller cut.

Police are still trying to determine a motive for a murder-suicide on Long Island Tuesday night.

Police say 66-year-old Patricia Ward was beheaded by her 35-year-old son and left on the street in front of their apartment in Farmingdale.  Derek Ward then apparently killed himself by stepping in front of an oncoming Long Island Rail Road train.

Nassau County Detective Lieutenant John Lazzata says Derek Ward has a ten-year history of drug and mental problems. He was also unemployed and was arrested several years ago for gun possession and criminal mischief.  Ward was a well-liked language arts professor at SUNY Farmingdale.
