as an aside "The New York Lottery also contributed $198,702,595.17 in Lottery Aid To Education to school districts throughout Suffolk County during fiscal year 2011-2012." so why are school taxes so high? just where is the 198,702,595.17 plus the school taxes they get going? and then you have to buy your own kids supplies plus for the classroom? really????
