On January 1, 2018, a new Suffolk County law goes into effect that charges a five-cent fee on disposable plastic and paper bags at a variety of retail stores. Those in support of the fee believe it will protect the environment from degradation. Those against are concerned it will hurt local businesses because the five-cent fee is nothing more than a tax. Do you support a Nassau County law imposing a five-cent fee on disposable plastic and paper bags?

This is the second year in a row there is the possibility of a Triple Crown winner at the Belmont Stakes. Since the Islanders have left this will be the biggest sporting event on Long Island for the foreseeable future. There should be several days of festivities leading up to the race such as: concerts, a big-time golf tournament, street fairs in every community, local beer, wine and food tastings, school marching band competitions, 5k races, a magnificent parade etc... People fly in from all over the world for the Kentucky Derby. They should for the Belmont Stakes too! AMH
