Their value when in circulation had been estimated at a modern equivalent of between £500,000 and...

Why, go to Disney World!Okay, so maybe Democrat candidate Martha Coakley didn't go to Disney World but she did take a 6 day vacation in the middle of her campaign for the U.S. Senate on December 23. Why would a candidate do something so foolish?

This morning, some voters in Suffolk hit a registration snag when they appeared in the electronic poll log as absentee voters. Voting officials said a few voters had to visit the registrar's office to confirm they were not registered as absentee voters. Voting officials then started cross-checking the electronic log against the paper poll log, which had correct voter information according to voting officials. It seems if voters registered to...

    ANTI-GUN campaigners voiced their concern last night after figures showed the number of legally owned guns in Suffolk had soared by 40% in five years. Since December 2001, 2,530 additional firearms have been licensed in the county - making a total of 9,003 at the end of March. But the figure is expected to be even greater next year as officers have already authorised a further 1,671 firearms, which are yet to be acquired. The large increase has alarmed anti-gun charity International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA), which called for tighter checks on those seeking permission to possess large...

The bus driver pulled the bus over and took the first graders backpack which had the gun inside.

    The Suffolk County Legislature passed two bills on Tuesday that will lead to the reopening of the popular Suffolk Trap & Skeet Range in Yaphank, which county officials shut down in 2001 after a series of problems. The decision was met with cheers from firearm enthusiasts and disappointment from some residents who live near the range, located in Southaven County Park. Bill Kirchhoff, a firearm instructor who teaches Boy Scouts how to shoot, said he has to drive to Kingston, N.Y., or to Yorktown, Pa., to use a range.
