The annoying sounds of leaf-blowers on our streets and sidewalks, the thump of loud music coming from our community center, or the out of control screaming heard outside your low life neighbor's home may all be considered a fact of our suburban life to some, but many others have become mad as hell and don't necessarily want to listen to anymore of these and other UN-necessary sounds, which are often heard from dawn to dusk.

Devotees of the sounds of silence can and must now do something about it before these practices become the norm. City Island residents, and others who are law abiding members of their communities should speak up and say enough is enough.

If you are one of these individuals who looks forward to another day in paradise, with peace, quiet and tranquility, you can now join the growing group of citizens who are pushing for ordinances to keep their noise decibels down and keep it there.
