For three consecutive years as part of the New York State budget, the WNY Children’s Psychiatric Center in West Seneca will remain open through the 2016-17 fiscal year. On Wednesday, state and local officials stood alongside family members and advocates of WNYCPC to once again stress the importance of keeping the West Seneca facility separate from the Buffalo Psychiatric Center adult facility. The rally, organized by Assemblyman Mickey Kearns, follows an attack of a 14-year-old girl by an outpatient of the Buffalo Psychiatric Center last weekend.

As we celebrate Earth Day today, it is an opportunity to reflect upon the impact we all have on our environment, and beyond.

Little things do matter. While each of our foot prints may seem small relative to the world, all of those foot prints can add up to a significant impact. So whatever each of us can do as individuals today to lessen our impact on the environment, the better it will be for all of us in the long run.

In honor of Earth Day, Senator Rob Ortt (R,C,I – North Tonawanda) today recognized Calgon Carbon for its commitment to protect residents through its environmental filtration efforts to provide clean air and drinking water. Thanks to Calgon Carbon, on March 30, after weeks of installation and system flushing, the Village of Hoosick Falls’ municipal water supply was deemed safe for drinking. Hoosick Falls is employing the use of granular activated carbon (GAC) for the removal of PFOA from the Village’s drinking water.

Our SCRIE event in Sunset Park today helped provide seniors with info on how to freeze their rent. I want to thank the Community Service Society of New York and Lynne Ornstein for their dedication to getting seniors the information they need.
