I sometimes wonder what if there were no rehabs, and if you used and became homeless you were on your own?? I know how hard it must be for a parent to give up on their child, but sometimes "Tough love" may be the only way of saving both your remaining family and letting the addict fend for themselves.. I was homeless myself once, and just toughed it out..What that situation taught me is "Appreciation", it is a very important word in recovery..I wake up without alot, but what I do have I cherish, food on my table, a roof over my head, the bills get paid.. I wish All recovering addicts could see through My eyes, dont take for granted the little things, thank the Good Lord for what you have..Appreciate life, it is a gift.. Guy Smith

Time to put some young whipper-snappers in their places! The Queens County Young Democrats challenged some borough elected officials to a charity basketball game at Resurrection-Ascension Church in Rego Park on Saturday night. The game raised over $1,200 for the church's food pantry. Despite having a few more years, age wise – or experience, depending on how you look at it – Team Electeds managed to defeat Team Young Dems. Members of Team Electeds included District Leader David Aglialoro, Councilman Costa Constantinides, Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley, Assemblyman Michael DenDekker, District Leader Ari Espinal, Assemblyman Ron Kim, State Senator Jose Peralta, District Leader Angel Vazquez, Councilman Mark Weprin, Councilman I. Daneek Miller, and Assemblyman Jeff Aubry (Coach) Team Young Democrats included Vijay Chaudhuri, Larry Gallegos, Aisha Gordon, Patrick Jordan, Anthony Lemma, Jr., Davon Lomax, Quintin Maidment, Alex Maureau, Grace Stevens, and Sean Mackell
