On January 1, 2018, a new Suffolk County law will go into effect, charging a five-cent fee for plastic and paper carryout bags, at a variety of retail stores. Those in support of the fee believe it will protect the environment. Those against view it as a tax that will hurt local businesses.

Create a RALI - Race Around Long Island - starting in Long Beach and ending in Port Washington. The over 200 mile engineless boat race should be in September, to help extend the summer tourism season on Long Island. It would be creative, fun and exciting helping to showcase the best Long Island has to offer. A food and wine festival at the start of the race would only enhance the atmosphere. A more rigorous race to Alaska was wildly successful earlier this year. http://r2ak.com/about/
