Yesterday, one of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aides was sentenced to six years for corruption. We have the reaction and analysis of the case and the ripple effect it could have on Albany. Brentwood Long Island’s Evelyn Rodriguez became a crusader against gang violence after her daughter was murdered by MS-13. This week, she was struck down by an SUV at her daughter’s memorial. Her funeral was this morning. We honor her life and discuss continuing her work with Suffolk County Executive, Steven Bellone. Today is World Alzheimer’s Day when we make a global effort to raise awareness and pledge commitment to eradicate the disease. 16 million Americans will have Alzheimer’s by 2050, will you be one of them? The details ahead. One year has passed since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, but the search for answers and solutions still continues. We’re on the case.
