Instead of dumping medications - prescription or over-the-counter - down the sink or flushing them, which puts them into the water supply - National Take Back Day allows you to give them to law enforcement officials who safely destroy them.

Instead of dumping prescription or over-the-counter medications down the sink or flushing them – which puts them into the water supply – National Take Back Day allows you to give them to law enforcement officials who safely destroy them.

Press Release

On Saturday, Oct. 26, the East Hampton Police Department and Local Prevention Committee will participate with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) in a nationwide Take-Back Initiative of unused and unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications.

These medications will then be disposed of properly – instead of flushing them, or putting them in the local landfill or otherwise exposing children and the environment to toxic substances.

Don’t flush your medications

A recent study found that 80 percent of U.S. streams contain small amounts of human medicines. Sewage systems cannot remove these medicines from water that is released into lakes, rivers or oceans.

How East Hampton and Windham resolved minor party ballot issues

October 20, 2013 Areawide, Feature, Local News Comments Off
In East Hampton, the Chatham party holds the majority of seats on several town boards and commissions and could be considered the majority party.   However, because they are not Democratic or Republican, they were required to include signatures, and did not.

In East Hampton, the Chatham party holds the majority of seats on several town boards and commissions and could be considered the majority party.
However, because they are not Democratic or Republican, they were required to include signatures, and did not.

Ed McKeon – MiddletownEye

While Middletown awaits the decree of a judge, other Connecticut towns have formulated solutions to adding minor party candidate names to the ballot in a year where several candidates have been ejected from ballots for want of a signature.

Connecticut law requires that all minor party candidates submit a signature with their party’s request for admission to the municipal ballot.  That law went into effect in 2010, but was ignored in 2011 elections when minor party candidates were added to the ballots in towns throughout Connecticut without the required signatures.

This year, those candidates have been challenged and minor party candidates have been forced off the ballot in several towns, including Middletown.
