Dear Long Islander,
As the week draws to a close, it looks like snow is headed our way, and that the belated winter weather is here to stay - at least for the next few weeks. Long Islanders were seemingly caught off guard by the freezing temperatures that we've been lucky to miss out on for most of the winter season thus far. Not to worry, though - there's plenty of great things happening this weekend to keep busy indoors, if you're looking to avoid the chill - check out our Events Calendar and Things to Do Section for the scoop on the best of the best this week, Long Island!

Hot Off the Presses
Gov. Cuomo's 13-14 Budget Proposal Reduces Deficit without Raising Taxes
Strategic Restraints on Spending Mean No Tax Hikes for NYers
Gov. Andrew Cuomo unveiled his 2013-14 Executive Budget proposal, which eliminates a $1.3 billion and keeps state spending growth under 2 percent without raising taxes. State Operating Funds are increased by 1.6 percent to $90.8 billion, and all funds, including federal funds, were increased by $2.5 billion, or 1.9 percent. This new budget also raises the minimum wage from $7.25 to $8.75 an hour, bringing it more in line with the actual cost of living in the state. This is the third year in a row that the budget would restrain spending growth to a 2 percent cap, though it also provides funding to create new jobs and reinvest in the state economy.
