Notability of West side runners[edit]

A tag has been placed on West side runners requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Dawn bard (talk) 20:25, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of S-7000.A[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on S-7000.A requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be an unambiguous copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from http://bowneparkcivic.com/category/articles/nyc/. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Hi! If the author of http://bowneparkcivic.com/category/articles/nyc/ wants to release the material for use in Wikipedia, he can follow the instructions here; if permission is received, it may be possible to restore the page. Until and unless that happens, we regard the content as copyrighted, and it can't be hosted here. I've deleted or redacted four versions of it so far, please don't make me do so again (and please be aware that you risk loss of editing privileges if you do). Thanks, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 21:22, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

I thought the deletion was happening by a computer program since there was no responses to all the messages about the author giving authorization. Also the author is over 80 years old and probably not going to go through a process. Is it ok to re-write the passages or quote him or credit that page. The author has already approved the usage twice. Thanks.

Ryozzo, what you tell us that somebody has authorised carries no weight here – unfortunately, not everybody tells the whole truth all of the time. If you want to use the content of http://bowneparkcivic.com/category/articles/nyc/ in Wikipedia, you'll need to get it released under an appropriate licence (instructions for the author above). Until and unless you do that, you may not add that, or any other, copyrighted content here. Since you've chosen to ignore my earlier request not to add this material again, I've blocked your account for a short period. Once that has expired you are welcome to contribute constructively to the project. Everything you write here must be entirely in your own words. Thank you, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 22:21, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

S-7000.A Real Property Tax Law in New York State article[edit]

S-7000.A is the name given to the current dominant property tax law in effect in New York State. The bill was enacted in response to the Hellerstein decision in 1981

In 1975 Jerome H. Hellerstein and Walter Hellerstein residents of Fire Island N.Y. filed suit against New York State. The reason was that their property tax was much higher than their neighbor for a similar house. This property tax inequity continues to this very day. Hellerstein sued New York State and won the lawsuit in 1975. This was called the Hellerstein decision. The decision of the New York State Supreme Court was that all properties in New York State would be reassessed to 100% of value.

Before 1980, New York State assessment system was at house creation only. This causes large variation in the property tax between new construction and older homes.

Before S-7000.A residential property was assessed at forty percent of market value and commercial property was assessed at seventy percent of market value. A large change in assessed values of properties would affect those who could afford it least, the seniors and unemployed.


Report from State Senator Padavan
Report from State Senator Padavan

According to John Procida (a civic organization member): About 1400 New York State Civic associations formed a united association and it was called it the "State Coalition Against 100% Re-Assessment", or SCAR. SCAR fought a five year battle with Stanley Fink who was the “Speaker” of the State Assembly and who was for 100% reassessments. For years, wherever Fink went, SCAR went, with our signs and voices. SCAR was successful in defeating a Bayside Assemblyman (who was running for re-election) as he was a supporter of Fink and the 100% assessment. That shook Fink up especially when we spoke at a large meeting of a big Civic Association in Brooklyn in Fink’s Assembly district. With that in late 1980 Fink invited SCAR to a meeting in Albany to hammer out a bill.

SCAR was 1400 Civic Associations and some of the upstate civics were active but the battle was for the most part, was fought by, State Senator Frank Padavan, State Assemblyman John Esposito, and six Queen’s Civic associations who were represented by their presidents. They were the, Queens Colony Civic – Virginia Sallow, West Cunningham Civic – Bob Harris, Bowne Park Civic – John Procida, The East Bayside Civic – Frank Skalla, Auburndale Civic – Jack Norris, and the Bayside Hills Civic – Bill Caufield (not in order of importance). In short we all agreed to the system of very slow equalizing that we have now. Our bill, S.7000-A/A.9200 was passed into law in January of 1981.
