How to eliminate telemarketing calls and junk mail?

DO-NOT-CALL TELEMARKETING REGISTRY

It's the law. You have the power to end unwanted telemarketing calls. A new law establishes a "Do Not Call Registry" and makes it illegal for telemarketers to call you once your name appears on the list. Telemarketers who violate the law can face fines of up to $2,000. per call. The law became effective April 1, 2001.

There are three ways to pre-register:

Phone
Mail

Consumer Protection
Board Helpline

1-800-697-1220

1-888-382-1222 to register direct

New York State Consumer
Protection Board

Suite 2101
Albany, NY 12223

STOPPING JUNK MAIL

The success of the "Do Not Call Telephone Registry" has caused Direct Marketers to shift back to sending soliciations and other offers thru the U. S. mail.

To join a "no junk mail" list, visit the website of the Direct Mail Marketing Association at: http://www.the-dma.org/

How do I obtain a marriage license?

A marriage license is required for any couple intending to be married in the State of New York. The license may be obtained anywhere in the State. There is a 24-hour waiting period before the license takes effect; after that, it is valid for 60 days. To obtain a marriage license in Lewisboro, we ask that the couple make an appointment with the Town Clerk's office at 914-763-3511. For residents, we are happy to make an after-hours appointment at your convenience. The license procedure takes about 20 minutes.

Marriage license applicants must bring government-issued proof of identity (a driver's license or a passport) and a certified copy of applicant's birth certificate which states both their father's name and their mother's maiden name. If this is not the first marriage for each, we require a certified copy of each judgment of divorce. The raised seal of the court should appear on the last page. Call the Town Clerk's Office if you have any questions regarding the required documents for the marriage license.The license fee is $40.00. After the ceremony, your officiant will return the marriage license to us, and we will issue a marriage certificate. Marriage license records are forwarded to the New York State Department of Health.

CHANGE FROM PRIOR TRAVEL REQUIREMENTS:

All travelers, including U.S. citizens, to and from the Americas, the Caribbean and Bermuda will soon be required to have a passport or other accepted document that establishes the bearer's identity and nationality to enter or re-enter the United States.

The initiative will be implemented in phases:

  • As of January 25, 2007: all Americans flying to and from Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda will need to carry a passport or similar document proving their citizenship. Other approved forms of identification include the Air NEXUS card, U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Document, or an Alien Registration Card, Form I-551.
    Similar rules regarding travel by land and sea will take effect at a later date - as early as January 1, 2008. The changes, which are part of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, result from recommendations made by the 9-11 Commission.
  • December 31, 2007: requirement extended to all land border crossings as well as air and sea travel.

Birth certificates had been a leading form of identification for travel to Canada and the above named areas. But the new rule is expected to make entering and leaving the U.S. faster, because it will dramatically reduce the types of documents presented to inspectors.

Flights to U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are considered domestic travel, meaning the new requirement will not apply.

For more information, please visit: http://travel.state.gov/travel/cbpmc/cbpmc_2223.html

For more information on the initiative and how it may affect you, please visit the State Department's consular website travel.state.gov or the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's website www.dhs.gov

For more information about applying for a passport, U.S. citizens may visit travel.state.gov or call the National Passport Information Center toll free at 1-877-4USA-PPT or TDD/TYY: 1-888-874-7793. Foreign nationals should contact their respective governments to obtain passports.
