Maloney to Introduce New Legislation to Protect Students Studying Abroad
 
New Bill Named in Remembrance of Newburgh Resident Ravi Thackurdeen
 
Maloney Bill to Require Schools to Report Crimes, Implement Safety Standards of Study Abroad Programs
 
Poughkeepsie, NY – With students heading back to school and considering study abroad options, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) will unveil his new bipartisan legislation to protect college students who are studying abroad TOMORROW, Thursday September 3rd at 11am. The Ravi Thackurdeen Safe Students Study Abroad Act would require institutes of higher education to report crimes that occur while a student is studying abroad, as well as show that they have adopted and implemented a program to protect students participating in an approved study abroad program from crime and harm. Maloney began working on this legislation after the widely reported death of 20-year-old Newburgh student Ravi Thackurdeen, who drowned while studying abroad in Costa Rica. Maloney will be joined by Ravi’s mother, Newburgh resident Ros Thackurdeen, as well as Noelle Damon, a trauma therapist who lost her daughter Zoe while studying abroad.

Local Spirit Celebrates One-Year Anniversary in NYC
 
 
 
New York, September 1, 2015 – KAS Spirits, producer of KAS Krupnikas, celebrated their one-year anniversary at Upper West Side hot spot, Prohibition. The celebration took place on August 26th and featured a special KAS cocktail menu with choices from a Honey Whiskey Smash to the popular sparkling Honey Trap, which later won a KAS Award for Best KAS cocktail.
 
KAS Spirits produces small batches of their spiced honey liqueur in Mahopac, NY from a generations-old family recipe for krupnikas, a traditional Lithuanian spirit.  The spirit has become a popular choice in retail stores like Sterling Cellars and great bars from Pour in Mt. Kisco to Maison Premiere in Brooklyn. KAS Krupnikas features all-natural ingredients from local clover and wildflower honeys to 10 exotic spices and hand-peeled citrus, making it especially popular with mixologists, locavores and a generation of people more conscious of the quality of their drinks.
 
“This party was really meant as a thank you to the people who have supported us in the first year,” says KAS Spirits’ founder, Kestutis Katinas. “KAS Krupnikas is a recipe I’ve made for 25 years before releasing it to the public last year and the support we have received is astounding,” he continues. “We would enjoy it neat or on ice but within our first year we discovered how versatile it is in cocktails. The drinks that bartenders create, plus the 60 we have created in house are simply astonishing. We realized that KAS Krupnikas can be enjoyed in so many ways.”
 
The party guests enjoyed free KAS gift bags and passed hors d’ oeuvres until the First Annual KAS Awards began. The categories ranged from Best Tasting Spot to Top Brand Ambassador and each winner received an engraved golden flask. All guests were also invited to see the new label that will be launching this fall.
 
“We are extremely excited about our new look” says KAS Spirits Marketing Director, Faye Postma. “After much deliberation and market research, we decided to update the branding via the label and a new website. We feel the new look is more in line with the handcrafted, small-batch aspect while still presenting its Lithuanian roots and exotic nature.”
 
The high quality of the spirit has been noticed by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, which has awarded KAS Krupnikas with a 92, putting it amongst the top liqueurs. Going into year two, KAS Spirits plans to continue gaining in popularity, especially heading into the busy holiday season.
 
“Honestly, KAS sells itself. It’s such a great product that people really enjoy drinking,” states KAS Brand Ambassador Winner and NYC bartender, David Renwanz. “I’m not sure they had any idea how popular their spirit could be but I think they’re going to really find out this fall and winter.”  
 
KAS Krupnikas is currently available at fine bars, retailers, and online. It is being distributed directly by KAS Spirits, LLC and is available to licensed businesses in the state of New York. You can learn more about KAS Krupnikas by visiting www.kasspirits.com or emailing them at info@kasspirits.com.

After 27 year drought, Murphy, Yorktown officials, 
announce DEC approval for new Hallock's Mill Sewer hook-ups
YORKTOWN, NY - For decades, thousands of residents in Yorktown have paid sewer taxes, yet were prohibited by law from hooking up to the sewer district. Senator Terrence Murphy wants residents to know that is all about to change.

Today, Murphy, joined by Yorktown Supervisor Michael Grace, local officials and citizens who have been influential in the effort to bring sanitary sewerage systems to Yorktown, announced Yorktown's approval to finally issue new permits in the Hallocks Mill Sewer District.

"Even with many facing failing residential septic systems, the town was for years limited to only emergency hook-ups," Senator Murphy said. "We're hitting for the cycle on clean water! This year, after passing my Westchester Clean Water Act and earmarking significant funds in the state budget for wastewater treatment and clean water projects, today, the Hallock's Mill Sewer District will be issuing new permits for permanent hookups."

In May, Supervisor Grace successfully obtained permission to issue a limited number of permits, the first to be issued in 27 years. Today's announcement verified that the Town has successfully had its State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit amended to allow for permits to continue to be issued in the Hallock's Mill Sewer District.

"More than a decade ago, $10 million was set aside to bring hundreds of homes who pay sewer taxes the services they deserve with a hook up to the town's sewage treatment," Grace said. "Politics, administrative red tape and bureaucracy stymied this effort, but in the past four years, we have made major headway. Now, un-sewered homeowners can finally bring sewerage infrastructure to their streets."

"This effort was years in the making during my time as a Councilman and would not have been accomplished without the work of some great people like Supervisor Grace, Council members Greg Bernard, Tom Diana, my former colleague Highway Superintendent Dave Paganelli, 'The Sewer Chick' Cathy D'Amato and many others," Murphy added.

Both Bernard and Diana said they were proud to have fought through the roadblocks and red tape to finally make sewers a reality. "Residents can begin contacting Town Hall for more information on the hook-up process," Diana said.

Mary Capoccia, the supervisor's confidential secretary, said "Every once in a while it is nice to be recognized for all the hard work that has gone on behind the scenes to bring projects to fruition. The town administration has been proud to partner with the County, the State and New York City DEP to make progress where others fell short."

ICYMI: New York State Among the Worst Places to Open a Small Business 

A new study published today in the NY Daily News again confirms New York is one of the toughest places in the nation to open a small business. New York received a 'D' grade for its overall friendliness to small businesses and an 'F' in the "ease of starting a business" category.

While Governor Cuomo does giveaways to big named companies for headlines and spends a billion of taxpayer's dollars to build a single factory for a billionaire's company, the small companies, which produce 80 percent of the State's new jobs are getting crushed by Cuomo's high taxes and regulatory burdens.

See the full story below:

New York is a tough state to open a small business: study


ALBANY - New York is among the toughest places in the nation to open a small business, a new study found.

The Empire State received a D grade for its overall friendliness to small businesses and an F in the "ease of starting a business" category, according to an annual survey from the consumer service website Thumbtack.

"It was the fifth worst state of those we looked at," said Thumbtack Chief Economist Jon Lieber.

The survey was based on responses from small business owners in 36 states, including 910 business owners in New York.

Lieber said New York small business owners most often complained about high taxes and a difficult regulatory climate.

"There's a lot of rules to comply with and there's a lot of complexity and not a lot of transparency or helpful guides to help entrepreneurs," Lieber said.
New York City did slightly better than the state, scoring a C minus for its overall friendliness to small businesses, according to the study.

Lieber said greater access to resources and assistance for small business owners gave the city a slightly higher score.
