Lido beach and others across the southern shores of Long Island continued to be shut-down this past weekend, as a result of shark sightings and the recent string of predatory attacks on humans by the beasts of the sea. Most recently, local governments and municipalities have begged the State of New York to step-up their response. On Monday, Governor Kathy Hochul announced that the Empire State is ready to take on the increased shark population.
The COVID-19 vaccine became available for kids 5-11 years old this week. Many parents across the Capital Region and New York state are scheduling appointments for their children. Now Governor Hochul has announced an incentive program for kids to win a full ride.
