While it is arguably the best time to be on the east end of Long Island with the sun still shining brightly and the local farms bursting with their harvest, our attention begins to refocus away from the joys of a glorious summer. The traffic has given way to yellow school buses as our children return to their classrooms. This is the perfect reminder to parents about the need to plan for the costs of higher education. According to a recent study conducted by the U.S. Department of Education, the average cost (tuition as well as room and board) of one year at a public university is north of $30,000 and a private institution is approximately $45,000. Consider also that these costs have grown over the last decade at an average annual ... Read More

A former Democratic political party official pleaded guilty Monday to state tax fraud, officials said. Gerard Terry, once the North Hempstead Democratic party chairman, pleaded guilty to fourth-degree criminal tax fraud, according to Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas. “It was the taxpayers who gave Gerard Terry most of his business, so his failure to pay his own share in taxes is all the more outrageous,” Singas said in a statement. A 2016 investigation found that Terry, who had earned an annual income of between $200,000 and $300,000 since 2000, had not voluntarily paid his state income taxes, officials said.

What the latest health overhaul push means for consumers

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , ,

Only one thing is certain for insurance shoppers if the latest attempt to replace former President Barack Obama’s health care law succeeds: Uncertainty. Will you be able to get coverage? How much will it cost? Will it cover my conditions? It depends. The proposal, sponsored by Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, would shift funding and key coverage decisions for both private insurers and Medicaid to states instead of the federal government. That means the availability and price of coverage could vary dramatically from state to state. The measure is the subject of hot debate in Washington, and senators may vote on it later this week, but its prospects are shaky. Republicans r... Read More
