OMAHA! GO SEAWOLVES!!!

Hometown Heroes:  West Islip’s Pat Cantwell and Lindenhurst’s Michael RoehrigWe New Yorkers have taken part in our share of sports Cinderella stories. In 1969, the Jets and Mets overcame improbable odds to capture a professional championship.  The NFL’s New York Giants  won championships in 2007 and 2011 after winning multiple games on the road as double-digit underdogs.  In 1980 when New York hosted the Winter Olympics, our great state laid ground to the US Hockey Team’s “Miracle on Ice” when we beat a Soviet team who many thought was the best in the world.

LaValle Honored By New York State Humane Association

New York State Senator Kenneth P. LaValle was honored by the New York State Humane Association today for sponsoring and passing a bill last year that increased the penalties for spectators at animal fights. The bill was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

The new law closed a major loophole in New York’s animal fighting laws that previously allowed some dogfighters and cockfighters to escape punishment by masquerading as spectators.

“Causing animals to fight and betting on the outcome is inhumane,” said Senator LaValle. "This new law  provides law enforcement and prosecutors with a stronger tool with which to combat these terrible acts."
