That group is obviously a cult and not a true Christian religion, but that is irrelevant to theRead More discussion. Pushing your religious views on someone else is not allowed in this country (at least in the workplace) no matter what religion. I find a few of political comments above rather offensive, and frankly made from a point of absolute ignorance. As usual, a lefty is preaching tolerance, but at the same time, calling names, making judgements about people, and looking to shut down all dissenting opinions. Get off your soap box bruce mallon-some of us aren't buying what you're peddling.

@ Frank re: "I always wanted to understand why the LI region is not using MORE freightRead More trains..." Modern rail freight is "intermodal", meaning truck trailers riding piggyback on flatbed rail cars (as opposed to loading the cargo in railroad "boxcars"). To work efficiently, the truck trailers are double-stacked on the flatbed rail cars, and the tunnels connecting Long Island with the rest of the country are not tall enough to allow double-stacked piggyback freight loads to come to LI. What little railroad freight comes to LI is shipped across NY Harbor into Brooklyn, on barges, or comes in the old boxcars. But there are very few places to unload boxcars full of freight on LI, and doing so requires too much labor and time. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The other problems with rail freight on LI are (1) virtually NOTHING from LI requires rail freight shipping OFF LI, making freight trains, here, a one-way proposition, which is costly, and, (2) Even if everything made or grown outside of LI came here on freight trains, all of it would still require TRUCK transport all over the Island in order to get it to consumers. LI does not have the infrastructure or network of Distribution Centers and truck terminals to handle that activity, plus, that kind of activity would not help with truck congestion and pollution. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I hope this makes some sense for you.

Mr Wendt re: Intermodal- In the 80's the LIRR started to get some special equipment that would allowRead More for truck trailers to be hooked up to freight engines. I remember that there was at least one place on the "Main" line on a "WYE" in Farmingdale that was equipped with a lifting device that would remove the trailers from these special devices and place on the road (Budwiser and several other companies used them for a while). Though they were not stacked, they did work. The MTA never really pushed this service. The special devices kept the trailers low so the trains made it thry the tunnels. Yes we do not manufacture enough to warrant freight service off the Island but aren't the truck trailers going off island empty anyway. Once there were freight yards on the Island (Westbury, Garden City, Hicksville, Farmingdale and out in Brookhaven to name a few) but in at least two have been converted to shopping centers, and two converted to garbage transfer stations. The MTA even built a freight car repair facility at the old Holban? classification yard, kept it working for two years and then tore it down (used the property to build their big passenger car repair facility).

Caldor also owned many subsides that were used to supply the retail stores also Caldor sold merchandise to sears & other retailers through there subsides. There were no family members intrested in taking over the business so Carl sold. After that it was all downhill. The subsidies were sold the stores were buying direct & had no clue.

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actually few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment for infractions justly employed have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime is the goal if you THINK.

Eric Wessels May 7, 2014 at 11:16 am
If you really are worried about pork: It has come to my attention, much too late to do anythingRead More about it probably, that there is a hog confinement proposed to be constructed within 1 mile of my home. This is not an uncommon occurrence in the state of Iowa. In fact there are 10 homes within 1 mile of this proposed facility, some just ½ mile away. I have looked at the manure management plan and one poor family will have manure spread on three sides of their property throughout the year. Of course this proposed facility is under the limit of 2500 hogs to require a permit by 20 hogs, so no one was notified. They will run 2 sets of hogs through the facility each year, 4960 hogs. This will produce over 660,000 gallons of liquid waste to be stored in a 270’ long, 70’ wide, 8’ deep lagoon. The manure will all be spread in section 13 of the Adel Township in Dallas County. My secondary concern (my primary concern is my family) is for others impacted and the county as a whole. This is terrible planning. The proposed facility lies in the center between Adel, Waukee, and Dallas Center. Dallas County is the second fastest growing county in the country. Waukee builds a new school every year. The Waukee soccer complex is a short 3.5 mile drive south. The proposed new county facilities would be 3 miles away. There is a church on highway 6 less than 3 miles away. The parking lot for the bike trail in Waukee is less than 3 miles away. The bike trail from Waukee to Dallas Center that was just completed, and is well used, is less than 100 yards. All of these items are outside the limits set by the legislature, but all will be affected. The county web site has maps indicating the entire core from Waukee to Adel and DC is anticipated residential with a regional commercial core where this is located. The long range planning has a western bypass that ties into the highway 5 bypass going right by this facility less than half a mile. Maybe this is what they mean by regional commercial. The map shows a 3/4 mile swath from R16 to R22 just north of 270th street. In a conversation I had w/ the county, it was stated this owner plans to build several (no number or location was given) in Dallas County. He can put facilities of this size every ½ mile without a permit because they will all be considered individual units under the size required to be permitted. I can’t believe this is what the citizens of Dallas County want, or what the planning organizations spend their time working on simply to be ignored. The problem primarily lies in the fact that local control is not allowed. In almost every other aspect of governance, local control is preferred and advocated for by the Iowa legislature. Big Ag controls the legislature and the DNR. Talk to your rep. Talk to your senator. Get local control for issues that affect you and your neighbors.

Why don't you find yourself another religion if you care about God at all. I think you will be disappointed. Robert, I appreciate your post an agree with you. I think things are cyclical and we have a society an culture now that belittle religion and especially the Church. I enjoy the extra room in the pews and look forward to seeing better days with more attendees.

You obviously know the regulations about hospital inpatient reimbursement. Unfortunately, my familyRead More and I have spent much time in ERs the past few years. The view is very different from inside the ER. First, in reality people are kept in beds in hallways without ever being "admitted" to the ER or the hospital. About 2 years ago my old father got dizzy and took a bad fall, hit his head. Went to Franklin ER, immediately sent for CT of the brain. Stayed in hallway 36 hours, supposedly waiting for Neurologist. On next day, was sent home by ER Doc without ever seeing Neurologist or being admitted because he was then stable. Never got admitted, not subject to regs you correctly cite. Regardless of the laws, this is what's happening in ERs. (And my dad has excellent insurance.) Any head injury- good insurance-> CT scan, Neuro workup if admitted. Bad/no insurance-> go home, have somebody wake you every 2 hours to make sure you're ok, if dizzy or nauseous, call your M.D. or come back. Either is a legit treatment for banging your head. I have bad insurance. My last admission to the hospital was for Pneumonia, admitted via ER by Infectious Disease/Int Med MD. Had 2 CT scans, saw I.D. Doctor first and last day of hospitalization, otherwise Interns. Got 5 days of IV antibiotics. Never seen by a Pulmonologist or a Respiratory Therapist. Inpatient, M.D. specialists will not bill you- they just won't see you. Regs require patients admitted to the ER are entitled to "full hospital services" 24 hours after admission- phone, food, etc. That's obviously ignored. Hospitals don't always disclose things 100% accurately or fully. Since my Long Beach Drs were wiped out by Sandy with everything else I had, I began going to SNCH Family Medicine Clinic before I could come home. They advise patients to call ahead to see Resident on call before seeing ER Dr, because you may be billed by ER Dr. True or not, South Nassau is very good at prioritizing care according ability to pay. By inheriting all of Long Beach's Orthopedics problems, SNCH gains that profitable group for that service, which is a virtual monopoly for benefactors Orlin-Cohen MDs. Unfortunately, quoting NYS Health codes is like quoting Long Beach Building codes. Here's a scan of the back of an appointment card from South Nassau outpatient clinic: http://imgur.com/WVtqUXA

@Bob West...I, as well, have spent numerous visits, hours, etc. in ERs, and inpatient at hospitalsRead More over the past year due before being diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease. It is my find that SNCH was not to my liking so I travel to Winthrop where I've had a much better experience in the ER and inpatient. In November, I spent 23 days inpatient at Winthrop with 2 CTs, 3 MRIs (under sedation because I can't lay flat for that long) 2 EMGs, a Lumbar Puncture (under anesthesia), a biopsy (under anesthesia) of lesions that they found on my spine, numerous blood tests, meds, IV infusions of steroids and other meds, and genetic testing, and probably many other things that I can't remember... I saw several specialists (about 8 different ones), and when they tried to bill me above and beyond, I called their billing department and told them I know the law and they removed the bill.
Bob West February 24, 2014 at 08:07 pm
Thank you, Leigh, for that valuable information. Sorry that I assumed you were talking "fromRead More the outside looking in" when the opposite was true. Honestly, in past hospitalizations, I've usually been covered by "house staff" and assumed I couldn't be seen by specialists because my insurance wouldn't cover it. Weird how we're on opposite ends of the insurance spectrum but still get told half-truths. Wouldn't it be interesting if they put your info in those gigantic packets of papers they give you when you go into a hospital. Believe it or not, I'm going in to Winthrop for surgery next week. So far, I'm also much more impressed with them than South Nassau. A friend actually suggested recently how good it would be if Winthrop took over Long Beach rather than SNCH. Thanks again for the very important information.
