This is a tough footrace, but the infection rate is down and the vaccination rate is up, and New Yorkers will get through this together as long as we stay touch and keep this momentum heading in the right direction."

1980 USA Olympic Ice Hockey Star Dies https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/4407-1980-usa-olympic-ice-hockey-star-dies4407-1980-usa-olympic-ice-hockey-star-dies https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/4407-1980-usa-olympic-ice-hockey-star-dies4407-1980-usa-olympic-ice-hockey-star-dies

United States Olympic hockey star Mark Pavelich was found dead Thursday in a residential treatment center, the Minneapolis Star News reported Friday.

Police said emergency personnel were sent to the Eagle's Healing Nest after Pavelich had not been seen for most of a day. There was no initial indication of the cause of death.

Pavelich, who turned 63 last week, had been receiving mental health treatment under civil commitment for a violent assault on a neighbor in 2019.

A hockey star for Eveleth High School and then the University of Minnesota-Duluth, Pavelich was a key member of the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" U.S. Olympic Team. He assisted on Mike Eruzione's winning goal in the legendary upset of the Soviet Union, and scored a goal and had six assists in the Olympic tournament, which Team USA won by defeating Finland in the gold medal game.

Pavelich went on to play with the New York Rangers for five seasons, followed by brief stints with the Minnesota North Stars and San Jose Sharks. The scrappy, 5-foot-8 forward last played professionally in 1992, after scoring 137 goals with 192 assists in 355 career games.

USA Hockey on Friday issued a statement of condolences, referring to Pavelich as "Forever a part of hockey history."

The Star Tribune reported, according to friends and family, Pavelich had become increasingly confused, paranoid and borderline threatening In recent years with those close to him believing that he may have been suffering from chronic traumatic encephalopathy -- commonly known as CTE -- caused by repeated blows to the head. Yet, Pavelich was not among the former players who filed claims with the NHL and gained a settlement with the league in 2018.

The Star Tribune reported that his wife, Kara, died in an accidental fall from a balcony at their home in 2012, and several years later, Pavelich sold his gold medal for more than $250,000 in an auction.

In August 2019 Pavelich was charged with beating his neighbor, James T. Miller, after an argument when the two went fishing. Miller, 63, was treated for cracked ribs, a bruised kidney and other injuries, and Pavelich faced four felony counts, including two assault charges and two illegal weapons charges after authorities found firearms with altered serial numbers on his property.

Two clinical psychologists who examined Pavelich found him to have post-traumatic stress disorder and that he lacked insight into his mental illness and was opposing treatment. The court eventually ruled that Pavelich was incompetent to stand trial because he was mentally ill and dangerous, and committed him to a state-operated secure treatment facility.

Pavelich earned his release from that facility to a less restrictive treatment center last summer, where he had been living until his death.

The pandemic has caused financial distress because of lost jobs, income, and homes, and emotional distress because of social isolation. This week, during National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW), we want your help to reach people who might be a bit cut off from their social network. The FTC knows that people who talk about scams are less likely to fall for them, and we hope to spark discussions by offering conversation-starting ideas. To close out NCPW, here are a few ideas to help you and the people you care about spot and avoid a “free prize” con.

Prize and lottery scams can start many ways, but they often begin with an unexpected phone call. The scammers may claim to be from the government. Or an official-sounding organization. They make wild claims about big winnings, and demand payment up front. If you get a call like this, hang up. You probably already know that. But you may know someone who doesn’t. So give a call to someone who might be a bit isolated, who could use a reminder about these scams. Chances are, they would like to hear from you, and have a chance to talk about how things are going and what’s on their mind.

Here are a few tips you can share about prize and lottery scams when you chat:

  • Legitimate contests don’t ask you to pay a fee, or give your bank account or credit card number to get your prize.

  • Never send money by wire transfer, gift card, or cryptocurrency. Anyone who asks you to pay for things that way is a scammer.

  • Don’t trust caller ID. Scammers can make it look like they’re calling from anywhere.

After you talk, invite your friend or relative to call you back if they have questions, or if they get a surprise phone call. If they say they already spotted a scam or sent money, please ask them to report to ReportFraud.ftc.gov. You’re welcome to file report for someone, if they ask for help.

ALL THE KING’S MEN may get its title from the nursery rhyme “Humpty Dumpty,” but this is no children’s poem. Robert Penn Warren loosely based the Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece on the bombastic, depression-era governor of Louisiana, Huey P. Long.

Is ALL THE KING’S MEN a story about political corruption? Or, is it a story about America, all of us, all along-not just Huey Long? Cast your vote after The Pandemic Players read “The Kingfish” tale.

Maloney Anniversary Roundtable with County Executives on Fight Against COVID-19 https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/events/4403-maloney-anniversary-roundtable-with-county-executives-on-fight-against-covid-194403-maloney-anniversary-roundtable-with-county-executives-on-fight-against-covid-19 https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/events/4403-maloney-anniversary-roundtable-with-county-executives-on-fight-against-covid-194403-maloney-anniversary-roundtable-with-county-executives-on-fight-against-covid-19

County leadership first met on the health crisis one year ago 

 Rep. Maloney: “This isn't about the two parties. This is about where the need is and who's delivering the services.”

Today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) hosted a virtual roundtable with Hudson Valley County Executives and Health Commissioners on the ongoing health and economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. One year ago this week, Rep. Maloney brought together the County Executives and local health leaders to discuss the emerging threat of the virus and readiness measures at the federal, state, and local levels. 

Watch the roundtable discussion on Facebook

The leaders discussed the current state of COVID-19 in the Hudson Valley and their path to defeating the virus with the passage of the American Rescue Plan Act, which will bolster vaccine development and distribution, help reopen schools, and provide critical resources to New York state and local governments. 

One year ago today, I sat down with local County Executives and health experts to discuss our response to coronavirus just days before the first case of COVID-19 was reported in my district. Today, we came back together to commemorate this very difficult anniversary, but also to celebrate the hope that the future can be better,” said Rep. Maloney. “I don't think any of us knew what was to come, but from day one of this pandemic, we’ve worked together across party lines and layers of government to crush this virus. I’m proud of our partnership. We’ve come so far, and more help is on the way.”

Last week, Rep. Maloney helped pass the American Rescue Plan Act, which provides New York state and local governments – who are on the frontlines of this health and economic crisis – with critically-needed funding to cover revenue losses caused by the coronavirus. This bill will bolster state and municipal budgets, and ensure New York’s health care workers, police, fire, transportation, EMS, teachers, and other vital workers can continue to be paid. 

The American Rescue Plan is estimated to bring $23.5 billion to New York’s state and local governments, including an estimated:

  • $75 million for Orange County
  • $57 million for Dutchess County
  • $19 million for Putnam County
  • $188 million for Westchester County

Additionally, cities and municipalities within New York’s 18th Congressional District will receive dedicated funding, including an estimated:

  • $22 million for Newburgh
  • $21 million for Poughkeepsie 
  • $12 million for Middletown

Ahead of the vote, Rep. Maloney also hosted a virtual press conference with local County Executives, Mayors and Town Supervisors on the dedicated state and local funding included in the American Rescue Plan Act. The press conference was streamed live on Facebook and can be found here. County Executives in New York’s Hudson Valley expressed their support of the critical state and local funding in a release, which can be found here.

The American Rescue Plan Act also includes a wide array of provisions to help Americans through this health and economic crisis, including dedicated funding for a national vaccine rollout, schools, small businesses, and farmers. The bill also includes additional direct cash payments for working families, expands unemployment benefits, and more. A breakdown of the bill can be found here.

Since the pandemic began, over 1.6 million New Yorkers have tested positive for the coronavirus, and over 38,000 have died. Nationwide, 28.7 million cases have been reported, and over 515,000 Americans have died.

Westchester County Health Department Issues Guidance on Spectators at School and Recreation Sports https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/events/4401-westchester-county-health-department-issues-guidance-on-spectators-at-school-and-recreation-sports4401-westchester-county-health-department-issues-guidance-on-spectators-at-school-and-recreation-sports https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/events/4401-westchester-county-health-department-issues-guidance-on-spectators-at-school-and-recreation-sports4401-westchester-county-health-department-issues-guidance-on-spectators-at-school-and-recreation-sports

The Westchester County Health Department has issued guidance on the New York State requirements for spectators at school and recreation sports.  The most dramatic change is that student athletes are now allowed to have two spectators at sporting events, as long as social distancing can still be accomplished and occupancy is still at 50 percent. 

However, schools and recreation centers still reserve the right to have a stricter interpretation and stricter guidelines.   Prior to this change, it was only two spectators per player for the home team only.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “We are being consistent with New York State guidance first and foremost.  We understand that youth sports are family events, and the families of Westchester have been through a lot these past 12 months.  We want the family to be included and we want the student athlete to be supported by their families.  We feel we can open youth sporting events a bit more and do so safely.”

County Health Commissioner Dr. Sherlita Amler said: “We understand that parents want to see their children play sports, this is a huge part of our culture and parents should be involved in their children’s lives.  As long as social distancing is observed, and masks are worn, we can accomplish both goals – safety and involvement.”

Following the NYS Guidance (https://www.governor.ny.gov/sites/governor.ny.gov/files/atoms/files/SportsAndRecreationMasterGuidance.pdf), page 6:

“For spectators, the following additional safety measures apply:  

  •        For sports events (e.g. games), Responsible Parties must limit spectators to two spectators per player.
  •        Responsible Parties must ensure spectators maintain six feet of physical distance between individuals and/or family/household units at all times and all spectators must wear face coverings when they are in common areas and situations where six feet of distancing is not able to be maintained, so long as they are over the age of two and medically able to tolerate such covering.
  •        Responsible Parties may facilitate appropriate distancing through the use of markings on the ground or seating areas, and other signage.
  •        Responsible Parties must ensure that, among all spectators, no individual group exceeds the gathering limit that is currently in place for the region.
  •        Responsible Parties may facilitate appropriate gathering size through the use of signage and/or staff to ensure groups are aware of and adhere to guidelines.”

Maloney, Co-Chair of the House Equality Caucus, Urges HHS to Reverse Anti-LGBTQ Trump Administration Rule https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/politics/4399-maloney-co-chair-of-the-house-equality-caucus-urges-hhs-to-reverse-anti-lgbtq-trump-administration-rule4399-maloney-co-chair-of-the-house-equality-caucus-urges-hhs-to-reverse-anti-lgbtq-trump-administration-rule https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/politics/4399-maloney-co-chair-of-the-house-equality-caucus-urges-hhs-to-reverse-anti-lgbtq-trump-administration-rule4399-maloney-co-chair-of-the-house-equality-caucus-urges-hhs-to-reverse-anti-lgbtq-trump-administration-rule

In response to an anti-LGBTQ Trump administration rule that would end nondiscrimination protections within social service programs, Reps. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18)Angie Craig (MN-2), and Nydia M. Velázquez (NY-7) are calling on Acting Secretary Norris Cochran and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to move expeditiously to reverse this dangerous rule. 

If the rule were to go into effect, federally-funded service providers could discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Taxpayer-funded adoption and foster agencies would be able to refuse to acknowledge same-sex marriages and turn away LGBTQ parents, and transgender teens could be turned away from federally-funded shelters. 

“Under this bigoted Trump Administration rule, federally-funded foster care and adoption agencies could refuse to place a child with a married same-sex couple, making it harder for families like mine to exist,” said Rep. Maloney. “There are over 100,000 kids in the foster system ready to be adopted – they are the collateral damage in the Trump Administration’s war against the LGBTQ community. As a gay dad with three kids, I know first-hand that good parents are good parents – it doesn’t matter what they look like or who they love. When you sanction discrimination against LGBTQ couples, you deprive kids like mine of good moms, dads, and families who will love them unconditionally.”

“The Trump Administration's eleventh-hour attack on the LGBTQ community was cruel and dangerous,” said Rep. Craig. “As the first openly LGBTQ member of Congress from Minnesota, I thank the Biden Administration for taking immediate action to pause this harmful rule. We must ensure equal protections under the law for all Americans, and I look forward to working with the Administration to do just that.”

“Even though Donald Trump is no longer in office, his Administration’s bigoted and discriminatory policies towards the LGBTQ community continue to threaten the rights of folks across this country. That’s why I’m joining my colleagues Representatives Maloney and Craig, in calling on the Acting Head of the Department of Health and Human Services to immediately reverse a dangerous rule that would end nondiscrimination protections within federal social services, such as taxpayer-funded adoption agencies and youth shelters. The federal government has a responsibility to ensure no one in this country suffers from discriminatory practices,” said Rep. Velázquez.

In February, HHS agreed to a court order that will temporarily halt the Trump administration’s anti-LGBTQ rule change for 180 days. Rep. Maloney looks forward to working with the Biden administration and HHS leadership to ensure the rule is fully reversed.

In addition to Reps. Sean Patrick Maloney, Angie Craig, and Nydia M. Velázquez, this letter was signed by 63 members of Congress.

Read the full letter here and below:

March 4, 2021

Acting Secretary Norris Cochran

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services

200 Independence Avenue, S.W.

Washington, D.C. 20201

Dear Secretary Cochran,

As you know, a week before the end of his presidency, the Trump administration finalized an unlawful and dangerous rule that would end nondiscrimination protections within social service programs. If this rule were to go into effect, it would eliminate critical protections preventing providers from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity when providing Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) grant-funded services. The rule also included language essentially ignoring the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decisions.

The Trump administration’s sanctioning of taxpayer-funded intolerance against people who receive services from HHS grant programs, including youth and families in the child welfare system, youth experiencing homelessness, and elder Americans, is reprehensible. Upon the rule's initial proposal, over 100 members of Congress called for its withdrawal to halt a harmful disruption to children, adults, and families across the country.  Under the shameful practices perpetuated by the Trump administration, a federally-funded foster care agency could refuse to place children with a married same-sex couple or a transgender teen could be turned away at an HHS-funded shelter. During these unprecedented times we should be finding ways to support our citizens, not discriminating against them under the guise of religious liberty. 

In response to a lawsuit filed by foster youth groups as well as LGBTQ advocacy organizations, HHS agreed to a court order that immediately stayed the effective date of this anti-LGBTQ rule. The effective date was extended by 180 days to August 2021 giving HHS time to reverse the rule.

We applaud the Biden-Harris administration for hitting pause on this harmful Trump-era rule, and it is our sincere hope that your agency will move forward expeditiously to ensure that all persons receive equal treatment under the law. Congress looks forward to working with you to make that a reality.

Drug Enforcement agency is getting reports about scammers https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/4396-drug-enforcement-agency-is-getting-reports-about-scammers4396-drug-enforcement-agency-is-getting-reports-about-scammers https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/4396-drug-enforcement-agency-is-getting-reports-about-scammers4396-drug-enforcement-agency-is-getting-reports-about-scammers

The US Drug Enforcement agency is getting reports about scammers pretending to be Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents. They’re trying to get your money and personal information, and using alarming phone calls to do it.

The DEA is alerting people to the scam. Their message: It’s not the DEA calling.

The scammers use fake names and badge numbers. Sometimes they use the names of real DEA agents and may even text photos of what look like legitimate law enforcement credentials. They may have information about you, like part or all of your Social Security number (SSN). When they target medical practitioners, like doctors and pharmacists, they may have their National Provider Identifier number or state license number.

The scammers’ stories vary, but usually go something like this: They’ve seized a car packed with illegal drugs. It was rented in your name. Or, they found identifying papers with your name in the car, at some drug-linked location, or on a bank account used for money laundering. You’re going to be arrested for drug trafficking and money laundering.

The fake agent comes up with a reason for you to transfer money to him — maybe for safekeeping, to pay a fine, or to prove you’re willing to cooperate. They’ll tell you how to send the money, often by wire transfer or by buying gift cards and telling them the numbers on the back of the cards.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • The DEA will never call and ask for your SSN or other personal information. It won’t ask you to pay anything. And it won’t call to say you’re under investigation or threaten you with arrest.
  • Your caller ID might show a real DEA phone number, but that’s not the real DEA calling. Computers make it easy to show any number on caller ID. Don’t trust what you see there.
  • Never give your SSN to anyone who contacts you. Don’t confirm the last 4 digits. And don’t give a bank account or credit card number — ever — to anybody who contacts you asking for it.
  • Anyone who tells you to wire money, pay with a gift card, or send cash or cryptocurrency is a scammer. Always. No matter who they say they are.

If you get a call like this, hang up. Tell friends and family members about it. Then, tell us about it too, at ReportFraud.ftc.gov.

A look back with Westchester County’s Public Health Nurses

 On March 3rd of last year, Westchester County was brought to its knees by the worst pandemic in our nation’s history – COVID-19. One of the country’s first true epicenters of the virus was in New Rochelle. Chevon Jones, Caitlin Doyle-Goldsmith and Kathy Gomez, all Westchester County Public Health Nurses, were the first three nurses to respond to the pandemic in the New Rochelle containment zone. As the County prepares to mark the one-year anniversary of COVID-19 in Westchester, the nurses take a look back on what the past year has been like for them, as well as share their hopes for putting the pandemic behind us.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has changed life as we know it in Westchester County. 2020 was a difficult year, and we have watched many of our loved ones suffer through this devastating illness. Now that we have access to the vaccine we can only hope for a better and a brighter future for our County, and I know that we will get there, together.”

Jones, Doyle-Goldsmith and Gomez are hopeful that Westchester County will turn the tide on the pandemic in 2021, especially with the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine. The Health Department’s nurses and medical staff have been vaccinating upwards of 1,000 people per day.

Public Health Nurse Caitlin Doyle-Goldsmith said: “It is very rewarding, and I am very grateful that I have a job that lets me participate and help to improve things. I am sure there are a lot of people that want to help and want things to get better, and this is something tangible that I can do. It is been a really difficult time, so it is great to be in a position to be able to work towards things getting better every day.”
