Toughening the Penalty Following Russell Station Vandalism

By now, I am sure everyone has heard about the individual or individuals responsible for stealing copper and releasing oil from a spare transformer at Rochester Gas and Electric’s Russell Station property.

It has been reported that RG&E found no evidence of oil along the Lake Ontario shoreline (either west or east of Slater Creek), and worked diligently to contain and clean up any oil in Slater Creek.

As a result of this crime and the environmental clean-up, this criminal (or criminals) left behind, I am proud to announce that I will introduce legislation that would criminalize intentional or reckless damage to the environment done in the course of committing another crime.

National Take-Back Initiative Saturday September 25th

On September 25, 2010, the Drug Enforcement Administration will coordinate a collaborative effort with state and local law enforcement agencies to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets. Collection activities will take place from 10:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. at sites established throughout the country.  The National Take-Back Day provides an opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for destruction.  These drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety.

Collections will take place at the following locations in my district:

Be Prepared for Flu Season!

As we enter flu season, here is some helpful information from the Monroe County Health Department:

Regardless if you got the seasonal and/or the H1N1 shot last year, you need a flu shot this Fall. This year's flu vaccine will contain H1N1 as it is believed that H1N1 will again circulate. But unlike last year, you will not need a separate shot -- 1 shot will do it. Also new this year, all persons 6 months and older are encouraged to get vaccinated.

There are numerous venues to get a flu shot -- your doctor, a pharmacy, or one of the dozens of public clinics. There are LINKS below to the major flu clinic providers in Monroe County. We encourage you to visit their web sites to find the location that is most convenient for you.

Susan B. Anthony House Launches "Send Susan Home"

“SEND SUSAN B. ANTHONY HOME” ---That’s the refrain being heralded by the Susan B. Anthony House and museum, a National Historic Landmark, in Rochester, NY. Remember those Susan B. Anthony dollars first minted by the United States Treasury in 1979? They were originally released by the U.S. Mint at the Susan B. Anthony House at 17 Madison Street in Rochester, New York. The dollar coin, the first U.S. currency to bear the image of a famous American woman, went into circulation from her home much the same she journeyed forth from Madison Street to campaign for human rights. About eight hundred million Susan B. Anthony dollars were minted over twenty years. However,the coin was similar enough in size and color to the quarter that it never caught on as currency.
