Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Nassau County lawmakers announced Monday they plan to repeal their controversial school-zone speed camera program—the same day that Suffolk officials declared they had terminated their version before its planned launch next year.Nassau County Presiding Officer Norma Gonsalves (R-East Meadow) plans to introduce legislation to repeal the unpopular program—an idea previously called for by the Democratic minority—according to a press release that was issued at the same time Suffolk lawmakers were holding a news conference announcing their plans to preemptively terminate their school-zone speed cameras.“Given Suffolk’s actions, we believe the Nassau County Legislature will repeal the program as well,” said Brian Nevin, spokesman for Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, a Republican, but without indicating whether Mangano would veto the repeal, if it passes the GOP-controlled legislature.The plans came on the same day that Nassau cut the hours its speed cameras operate from 11 hours—7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on school days—down to the four hours when children are entering or leaving their schools: 7-9 a.m. and 2-4 p.m. Registered owners of vehicles caught on camera speeding more than 10 miles over the 20 mph school zone speed limits can expect $80 tickets mailed to their homes.Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, a Democrat, told reporters during a news conference at his Hauppauge office that the decision to abort the speed cameras came after seeing issues with similar programs nationwide as well as the problem-plagued rollout in Nassau.“We have made a determination that Suffolk County is not going to move forward with the school-zone camera program,” Bellone said while flanked by Democratic, Republican and minor-party legislators. “We’re going to pursue other alternatives for enhanced school-zone safety.”He added that Legis. Sarah Anker (D-Mt. Sinai) will chair a school zone safety commission that will issue a report on alternatives to the cameras and propose measures to the county legislature.New York State this spring had authorized Nassau to install 56 speed cameras and Suffolk to install 66—one in each of Long Island’s school districts. Nassau lawmakers amended their red light camera contract with Arizona-based American Traffic Solutions (ATS) to have ATS launch the speed cameras over the summer, but Mangano declared amnesty for the first 40,000 tickets issued following a faulty roll-out—nullifying the first $2.4 million in fines collected.Between early September and Nov. 30, the county has generated nearly $17 million in fines, Newsday has reported, although the county has not confirmed that amount. Nevin has only said there has been a 70-percent decrease in the speed-camera tickets, but the administration declined to release specific figures.Gonsalves plans to discuss her speed camera repeal proposal at a press conference scheduled for Tuesday. Although lawmakers have repeatedly insisted that the motivation for installing the speed cameras is public safety and not much-needed revenue, a repeal of the program in Nassau is expected to widen a multi-million dollar budget gap expected next year that already had forced Mangano to break his campaign promise not to raise property taxes.

Former Indian captain Rahul Dravid on Tuesday reacted to the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna controversy claiming that he was unaware about his nomination for the highest sports award in the country.When asked if callousness on part of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) cost one of the greatest Indian batsmen his due, Dravid said, “I am not sure what I have been nominated for. How can I say anything?”Dravid’s statement reflects that he was kept in the dark by the BCCI about his Khel Ratna nomination.The BCCI also reacted on Tuesday after being accused of not having pushed hard Dravid’s case for the Khel Ratna and not fleshing out his exploits in details.BCCI president N. Srinivasan said, “We had proposed Dravid’s name. Do you expect us to lobby? It is not question of giving all the details about a legendary player. Everybody knows him. We gave sufficient information.”Ironically, the BCCI had only included cursory details of Dravid’s record in the last year despite being given ample time to meet the deadline. The deadline for the nominations was extended just to accommodate BCCI’s recommendations.While the achievement columns of most of the other Khel Ratna and Arjuna Award nominees listed their achievements in detail, the BCCI had kept the list of its nominees’ achievements too concise.Dravid was not finally selected by the Union sports ministry’s committee that announced names of London Olympic silver medallist Vijay Kumar (shooting) and bronze medallist Yogeshwar Dutt (wrestling) for the honour last week.advertisementYuvraj Singh, who has been preparing to stage a comeback after recovering from a rare germ cell cancer, was the only cricketer among the 25 sportsperson who were picked for the Arjuna Award.
Receiver Plaxico Burress said in a radio interview earlier this week that, “no doubt about it,” he wants to play next season for the Carolina Panthers, who are quarterbacked by last year’s rookie of the year, Cam Newton.But Burress has received calls from other NFC South teams, the Panthers haven’t called yet, he told WFNZ in Charlotte on Monday.“My brother lives right there in Charlotte, my cousin lives there in Charlotte, and all my family is there in Columbia, South Carolina. It would just be a great situation all the way around and being close to everybody.“Not just that, but playing with Cam, who I think is one of the top five quarterbacks in all of football, and as long as I can remember, Steve Smith, has been one of my favorites. I just think it’s a great situation.”Burress told WFNZ that NFL teams are interested in him but he hasn’t found the right fit. In February, Burress had expressed a strong desire to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles, but there apparently doesn’t seem to be a match between the team and receiver, as he remains unsigned.“I just want to put myself in a position to go out and have success and to make the guys around me better and obviously play with a quarterback who can really play the position,” Burress said. “It’s just about me picking my spots and seeing where I’m a good fit. You just look at a situation like Carolina. You can’t come across a better situation than that.”Burress returned to the NFL last season after missing two seasons thanks to a prison sentence for accidentally shooting himself in the leg at a nightclub.Burress, 34, tied for the Jets’ lead with eight touchdown receptions but never really clicked with quarterback Mark Sanchez, finishing with 612 yards and 45 receptions.

Like Tim, Gus also said it seemed that there were few resources in National City to help those who are homeless.The Alpha Project outreach workers work five days a week, eight hours a day to establish a relationship with the unsheltered people they meet in the city’s parks and canyons. Their goal is to connect those who are living on the street with housing, employment, and other services in San Diego that can end their homelessness.Even with repeated offers to help, the outreach workers say the individual has to decide to take the first step.“It can change their life in that moment, just by getting into the (Alpha Project) van and going to shelter, and having the resources available to them,” said Morelli.With Alpha Project, we visited one spot near the National City Golf Course, where a man named Dewey had set up a camp on a hillside overlooking the golf course. He wasn’t there, but another man was and scurried out of sight when he saw our camera.At another location, near the 54 freeway off Sweetwater Road, where a woman in her 30’s had set up a makeshift camp, Alex said the woman had been removed from one location by code enforcement before moving to her present spot, where her camp was surrounded by boxes, trash and other items she appeared to be hoarding.Except for the contacts made by Alpha Project, Jen and Alex told us the homeless in the area receive little assistance. National City has no shelters or food supplement programs. The outreach workers said it’s common for many people to reject the initial offers for assistance, but later have a change of heart.“There are people who change their tune,” said Montone. “With the right compassion, the right approach and the right resources, it’s possible.” Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter April 27, 2018 Updated: 10:42 PM Special Report: Alpha Project aims to help homeless in National City Sasha Foo, Posted: April 27, 2018 Sasha Foo
