Summer camp new york state
With every election season comes the possibility of change. Political parties must make their cases to voters, and elected officials, no matter how long they’ve served, must again win the support of their constituents. And while incumbency is often a powerful advantage in New York, 2018 is already shaping up to see more turnover than in a typical year. It’s in this time of transition, with a new crop of fresh-faced candidates shaking things up, that we turn our attention to the many young individuals who are making their mark in New York City politics – and not just those seeking and winning elected office. Jamie Ansorge Counsel, Cozen O'Connor; Government Relations Adviser, Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies Political activism, Jamie Ansorge says, is “in my blood.” In high school, he campaigned for candidates on street corners outside Stuyvesant Town.

Skaneateles, N.Y. -- State officials say the water at Lourdes Camp on Skaneateles Lake is safe to drink and swim in, contrary to what the operators of the summer camp told parents earlier Monday. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Department of Health said in a joint statement Monday night that testing conducted by the city of Syracuse, including microscopic analysis of an algae bloom near Lourdes Camp on the lakes eastern shore, found no toxins, or microcystin, and confirmed that the algae are not harmful. "DEC, DOH, the (Onondaga) County Health Department and the city will continue to monitor the area and the entire lake to ensure the public and the environment are protected," the statement said. "It is our understanding that the decision to close the camp was made by the camp out of an abundance of caution." DEC spokeswoman Erica Ringewald said she could not explain why camp officials told parents that the water was unsafe. "I would assume they … [Read more...] about Skaneateles Lake water at Lourdes Camp is safe, state says
Sections Skip to content Skip to site index Few women are lionized with public monuments in New York, and as the city prepares to redress that, we asked readers who should be memorialized. Here is what they told us. Frances Perkins was a sociologist and labor activist in New York, and was the first woman to serve in a presidential cabinet. Credit Anthony Camerano/Associated Press Supported by ByGinia Bellafante July 26, 2018 In an effort to correct the civic record left in public art, New York City officials announced in June that we would soon be seeing more statues of women on our streets and in our parks. Right now there are very few — a bronze of Gertrude Stein in Bryant Park, a sculpture of Eleanor Roosevelt in Riverside Park. About a mile north of her you can find Joan of Arc riding a horse, but really, what is Joan of Arc — who fought for many things, not one of them rent control — doing on the Upper West Side of … [Read more...] about More Women Deserve Statues in New York.

Shannon Heupel Montgomery Advertiser Published 1:30 p.m. UTC Jul 24, 2018 Sixty-one years ago, nine youths stood tall in the face of racism in Little Rock, Arkansas. In 2018, with the help of Montgomery native Charlie Hudson III, their story of education equality is being told to new generations in New York. Hudson is the actor portraying Ernest Green, one of a group that would become known as “The Little Rock Nine,” black students who attended formerly all-white Little Rock Central High School. “Honestly, it’s a really big honor to even have my name in the same sentence as (Green’s), especially as far as civil rights are concerned,” Hudson said. "It’s a totally humbling experience. I’m thankful to be blessed with this role.” Green described “Little Rock” as a very powerful play that represents that era - and himself - very well. "Charlie was, I think, the right person,” Green … [Read more...] about Montgomery actor plays Ernest Green in New York’s ‘Little Rock’
