Letter To The Editor: RE: Things That Tick Me Off:  Manifesto 08/18/15
Hi Andy!

You must have a listening device in my house because every issue you listed was right on target.  How about this one! Parents who allow their underage kids to ride around the neighborhood on unregistered dirt bikes, mini bikes and ATV's, with no helmets to boot! Stupid parents "DO" produce stupid kids. Thanks for educating the public with your straight forward articles.

Hi Andy,

Here are some things that tick me off.

1. My neighbors across the street do not know how to close their mailbox. EVER!

2. The same people put their paper, card board and plastics out for recycling on the windiest days of the year without securing them. Want to guess how many times they have ever offered to help me clean up their mess? NEVER!

3. People, especially on television who say: safety deposit box instead of safe deposit box.

4. People, especially on television, politicians and military people who say NEW-KEW-LAR instead of nuclear NEW-KLEE-ARE

5. Spitting image rather than splitting image. Ptooy, there's your image full of spit.

6. People who invent fake descriptions such as the word COP from Constable on Patrol. But I was screamed at by a cop who said it was because badges were made from copper.

7. Explaining that a chocolate egg cream used to contain eggs, when in reality it is a chocolate Ec-cream just like a chocolate Ec-clair.

8. Paying full price on Metro North only to see a teenage girl flip open a leather billfold with a miniature gold badge, and a gold leaf stamp that says "police officer's daughter" and she rides for free. I have seen exactly the same thing but stating "police officer's wife" in gold on the bill fold.

Thanks for letting me vent!

Assemblywoman Galef Applauds New State Grants Going to Local Libraries
New State Grants Going to Local Libraries within the 95th Assembly District

Assemblywoman Sandy Galef (D-Ossining) announces that two new state grants
are being provided to the local libraries in the 95th

Assembly District.  These grants were allocated in the 2014-2015 New York
State Budget, and they will help to renovate two public

libraries in the Westchester Library System and the Mid-Hudson Library
System.  The two public libraries that would be receiving

these state grants will be the Briarcliff Manor Public Library in
Westchester County and the Julia L. Butterfield Memorial Library in

Putnam County.

These grants came from a $14 million capital fund appropriation in the
2014-2015 state budget for the construction and renovation

of public libraries and public library systems in New York State.  The
Briarcliff Manor Public Library will receive $27,280 for electrical

wiring and media equipment installation for newly-constructed spaces to
increase programming, while maintaining space for individual

users.  The Julia L. Butterfield Memorial Library in Cold Spring will
receive $24,566 for the revitalization of unused space that will

provide for new public space in the Children's Room, a replacement window,
and door and lighting to improve energy efficiency.

"I am pleased that these libraries were selected to receive these
significant state grants, as they will serve as a positive impact on our

communities for now and the future," said Assemblywoman Galef." "I consider
myself to be an advocate for public libraries and how

important they are in each of our communities.  These critical state grants
help to promote the public library in such a positive way."
