REQUESTING REFUNDS FOR CABLEVISION CUSTOMERS...ARDSLEY HS STUDENT POSTS 2ND YOU TUBE VIDEO ON GRB
Release Date: October 18, 2010

REQUESTING REFUNDS FOR CABLEVISION CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE BEEN DEPRIVED OF PROGRAMS THEY WANT TO WATCH
I am writing to the chair of the NYS Public Service Commission and the chair of the NYS Cable TV Commission requesting that NYS  require Cablevision to issues refunds to customers when the company is unable to offer channels that cablevision customers paid for at the time they contracted for the service.
  This past week Cablevision customers were deprived of the ability to watch major sports (NY Giants-Detroit Lions game). Major League Baseball National League Championship Series, the World Series are also aired on stations owned by Rupert Murdoch.
  Earlier this year cablevision had a contractual dispute that resulted in the Food Network being taken off the air. The Disney network was out for a period of time during the Oscars.
  This is unfair. Many customers would not subscribe to cablevision if they knew that they would not have access to these programs. I encourage the state to require refunds when there are service disruptions.

COMPOSTING OF LEAVES COULD SAVE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
Irvington GPTF's  "Your Leaves: Love 'Em and Leave 'Em" Environmentally-Friendly Cost-Saving Initiative
 
 
On Wed., October 27 at 7:30 p.m., the Irvington Green Policy Task Force will be presenting "Your Leaves: Love 'Em and Leave 'Em", an environmentally-friendly cost-saving initiative to the Greenburgh Town Board during the Board meeting at Greenburgh Town Hall.  The meeting will take place at 177 Hillside Ave.
 
Fall leaves are a valuable resource that most homeowners let go to waste by having them blown into piles on the street, or raked into brown landscaping bags stacked curb-side, left for eventual town pickup. Leaf collection, hauling, and disposal is a huge annual cost to every municipality in our tree-lovely county!  Too often these curbside leaf piles spread out, or the bags tip over, washing leaves into the street, clogging storm drains and making roads dangerous for driving.  Additional cost is thus incurred because these storm drains must be cleared to avoid flooding.
 
As a homeowner, are there options?  Is there a better way?  Whether you pay a lawn care service or do it yourself, the easy and cost-saving answer is: Leave 'em in place!  Shredding your leaves where they are on the lawn, using shredded leaves as a winter mulch on landscape beds, collecting shredded leaves into compost piles, or simply leaving your leaves under the trees in wooded areas are all examples of using nature's own method of turning old leaves into new soil.  In these stressful economic times, the"Love 'Em and Leave 'Em" Initiative is not only "green", it just makes Cents!  
The public are welcome to come to the Town Hall for the presentation, or for more information and/or questions about mulching-in-place, visit the Irvington Green Policy Task Force web-pages at:
