PLAINVIEW - One the eve of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, police in New York City and on Long Island have intensified patrols after receiving a new credible terror threat.

"We're doing everything in our power to protect our people," President Barack Obama said. Officials on the Island have intensified patrols at railroad stations and are conducting random bag checks. Local residents like Linda Hillel, of Plainview, applaud the heightened security. Tomorrow, family members of the Sept. 11 victims will read the names of all those who died. During the ceremony, there will be moments of silence and poems will be read.
