  • Dick Hubert’s Worldview: Heart-stopping moments: debt ceiling vote;
Ukraine war support; Blind Brook budget

    Well, that was a heart-stopping moment.

    Were we, or were we not, going to default as a nation and send the world economy, and our own, into catastrophic chaos?

  • I was very hesitant to write this letter. I prefer writing about Ukraine and not touching upon our local issues. But it does not mean I do not notice and will not say anything.

  • In the May 26, 2023 edition of the Westmore News, in response to constituents' concerns asking "why property taxes have gone up so much in recent years," the Blind Brook Schools Superintendent stated: "the average home's assessed value has increased steadily" as a major component. It is inaccurate to suggest that an increase in the "average assessed value" leads to increased property taxes.  

  • Before I compose the rest of this letter, I hope the young people are told of what happened 79 years ago on June 6. That day—June 6, 1944—was D-Day. For the uninformed, this was the largest invasion force ever, it was the beginning of the end of World War II in Europe. I don't know if they teach this in schools today, the woke agenda may not permit it, but all young people should know what happened on that day. Surely there must be some teachers who think this was of great importance, I hope so. Many of your grandparents fought and died there. We must never forget what that generation did!
