    Former NFL player Devon Cajuste is trading the ultraphysical for the metaphysical. Cajuste, a Seaford, LI, native, who walked away from the game in January, has spent the first few months of his retirement working as a crystal healer. He’s using his arsenal of 100 precious stones and gems — worth more than $20,000 — to tap into the transcendental energy of an entirely different fan base. “Football was not my passion,” says Cajuste, 26, a towering 6-foot-4 former tight end. “The feeling that I got from [crystals] was greater than any play I made in the game.” A little...

    Nearly 11 million Americans nationwide would have been capped from deducting more than $323 billion in state and local taxes in 2017 because of changes enacted in the GOP's tax reform legislation, according to an audit released Tuesday by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration — and expect similar results for the 2018 tax year. The 28-page report offers a new window into the full scope of the $10,000 cap on SALT deductions, which is supported by the White House and top congressional Republicans but has been heavily criticized by the leaders of many high-tax Democratic states, including New...

    The NYPD has received information that members of MS-13 are “looking to ‘hit'” police officers who live in certain parts of Long Island to enhance their credibility within the gang, The Post has learned. In a memo released Tuesday, authorities from the police department’s 105th Precinct warned officers that the department has received “threats against [members of service]” who live in Brentwood and Central Islip, both hamlets in the Suffolk County town of Islip, as well as Patchogue. “Intel has been obtained that members of MS13 are looking to ‘hit’ NYPD police officers, specifically in the Brentwood/Central Islip area, as...

    New York City resident Todd Aydelotte has come up with an inventive way to make long runs in the city interesting: Turn them into a history lesson. It started about two years ago, when he started running longer distances. Inspired by ultrarunners like Tommy Rivers Puzey and Timothy Olson, who seem to run wild, free, and connected to the land, Aydelotte wanted to bring that to his own runs. But running in canyons and near streams is not easily feasible in the concrete jungle. Aydelotte needed to find a different way to motivate himself to go farther and distract himself...

    Residents of a New York town are raising hell over a notorious motorcycle gang’s plans to move its headquarters into a vacant church. The Suffolk County chapter of the Hells Angels recently bought a church in Centereach that has been vacant for years and will serve as the club’s new headquarters, Fox 5 reported. "Nobody wants this in their own backyard. This is something you have to be very concerned about," said one critic of the plan who did not want to be identified. "Drug dealing is their major [enterprise], prostitution. That's a lot of the stuff that goes on...

Survivors of the deadly shooting are still comforting each other a quarter of a century later to talk about the day the gunfire rang out and how their lives have changed.

    **SNIP** “The big thing [with homeowners] in the Hamptons is that if somebody has it, they [all] want it,” said Chris Cosban, a Long Island contractor who installs panic rooms in the area’s mansions. His company, Covert Interiors, charges between $25,000 and $200,000 for a standard space. (High-tech add-ons, such as fingerprint recognition, cost extra.) “There is a wow factor,” he said. “They like to brag about it.” Herman Weisberg, managing director of the personal-security firm Sage Intelligence Group, said many of his clients look at their panic rooms like amenity spaces — doubling as home theaters, wine cellars or...

    A Long Island man was arrested Friday for threatening to kill supporters of President Donald Trump and Republican Rep.

Martin Astrof, 75, of Nesconset, “became irate” at the Suffolk County campaign headquarters of Rep. Lee Zeldin at 11:15 a.m. Friday, local police said. He threatened to kill a campaign worker, as well as other Zeldin and Trump supporters — then “backed his car up in an aggressive...

    Democrats in New York flipped a New York Assembly seat on Tuesday, winning a seat that has been in GOP hands for nearly four decades. Democrat Steve Stern, a former Suffolk County legislator, beat out Janet Smitelli (R) for AD-10, a Long Island seat, with 59 percent of the vote, according to Daily Kos. The district has been represented by a Republican since 1978. Former presidents Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both won the district in the last two presidential elections, but the 18-point margin in Tuesday's election is indicative of a growing blue wave in the area.

    Notorious street-gang MS-13 has reportedly ordered its members to “take out” police officers in New York; hoping to send a strong message to authorities following a serious crackdown on the group throughout the region. According to the New York Post, the NYPD is on high-alert after a confidential informant told police that gang members were given a green light to murder local police officers; particularly in the nearby town of Hempstead on Long Island. “The police have been making too many arrests and it’s time to take the streets back and take out (shoot) a cop like we do in...

Police are hunting for the suspect, a tall, light-skinned Hispanic man with a thin build and a tattoo of three dots next to his eye. Police in Hempstead — one of the Long Island towns where the violent gang has a stronghold — were tipped off to the threat Wednesday by a “credible” informant, the NYPD memo said.

    TOWN OF ISLIP, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A Long Island judge stands accused of breaking into a neighbor’s home, but it’s what police say he stole that’s baffling residents even more. He’s accused of taking worn women’s underwear from the residence. It happened around 9 a.m. Thursday on Donna Place in East Islip. “There was a 23-year-old girl home alone. She heard noise in the house, she saw an intruder,” Suffolk County Police Chief of Department Stuart Cameron said. When the intruder realized someone was home, police said he ran off. But officers quickly caught up with him a couple blocks...

    His pockets were packed with purloined panties. More disturbing details emerged Friday about the pervy Long Island judge accused as a serial underwear snatcher after his arrest for raiding the hamper of an East Islip neighbor. Robert Cicale, when busted for grabbing the undies of his 23-year-old former intern, was carrying a raincoat — its pockets filled with additional panties, authorities said. “He indicated in his confession that he has urges to steal women's underwear,” said Suffolk County District Attorney Tim Sini. “It's a strange set of facts.” Prosecutors, without identifying anyone, said the investigation had turned up five victims...

    HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — With a pivotal local election looming in the fall, the Republican-controlled Nassau County Legislature recently approved new district lines that could help the party secure at least two more seats. A local Republican club has increased its campaign chest tenfold over the last two years, bringing in individual contributions of tens of thousands of dollars from a family paving company, a real estate developer and other donors with business before the county, according to disclosure records. And if past elections are any guide, the party can also turn for campaign help to workers from the county’s special...
