What do you expect the kids to do when you move them out to the bleak boonies in RP? It's either that or dying from boredom.
You're fam has been "moving out here soon" since I started lurking on this site. Give it a rest.

No one was talking to you Peqs but now that you chimed in you should probably take a look at the drug problem in Massapequa (or at very least put down the pipe).
; )

At least RP, WF,3V are taking some action.
Whats wrong with you? Is that what you're condemning us for as kids are dying?

Moderator cut: link not allowed

As for the fam not too many takers for an overpriced, overtaxed ranch with flooding issues on Da Riv but theres a big dumb hairy ass for every seat.They are looking at MS MP RP as we speak.
After damn close to 40 great years they had enough with the local flava.

Anyway were OT.

This is exactly what local SDs ought to do.
Im proud of what going on at the parent level.

I'll translate...my fam has hit hard times and needs to move to lower income Suffolk County.

It's quite obvious to me that Long Island Alps has far more social problems than the Riviera ever will.

Ill translate....If owning a waterfront home on The Riv out right is "Hard Times" then the area must really be going down the tubes.

Like I said they had great years there GPS(no lie).They just want a bit more (and a bit less).

Ostriching will never get at the heart of the drug problem in Massapequa (or anywhere).

I'm proud of the districts out here for taking a stand.

What is RP, underpriced and undertaxed ??
I was looking at FEMA maps the other night, no flooding issues by AAB. I guess they are in E. Massapequa then or on one of the canal blocks.

Thank you for translating the gibberish Gps.

Nowadays, it seems that SD and parents really need to address drugs (qand alcohol) at the latest by 6th grade, then follow through hard in junior high, and "maintenance dose" it through HS years.

Beginning discussions in HS...... well better late than never, but not as effective.

I mean, for how many decades have we known that drugs are rampant in LI HS, in middle class RP, and especially high money areas, like JFK Bellmore and "the pharmacy" WM in 3V noted in Crooks thread recently. JM2C

I don't know about that "high money areas" myth. Look at the map LiltownBlues put up. Did you notice Freeport, Hempstead, Elmont had the biggest clusters, by far, for heroin use? I looked at Suffolk, same thing--Brentwood had the highest cluster.
We can throw that myth out the window now.

On Addressing drugs early. I think it does almost nothing. They addressed us as early as middle school, and half my class smoked weed in the sumps EVERY lunch period. It does very little to prevent it. If you prevent it in HS, the animal gets unleashed later on in life and they become the craziest drug users/drinkers when they get to college. Seen it a million times.
