From The Publisher: 2018 Year In Review

Being a newspaper publisher means that I have a front-row seat for all the news that breaks in the communities we cover. As we near the end of 2018, there is plenty to look back on.

Going into 2019, we’ll be witnessing County Executive Laura Curran continue to effect change while we see the results of the midterm elections put to work. On a national level, we were there with students as they walked out in response to school gun violence.

Our team of editors have really outdone themselves this year, getting the opportunity to share with our readers exclusive interviews with celebrities, musicians, actors and Broadway stars. We have also highlighted some of the best eateries on Long Island, shining a light into the little-known spaces and places that make Long Island a true melting pot.

One of my passions is the charitable work that so many organizations do in helping the less fortunate. Among the notable efforts of 2018 was Northwell Health and the Americana Manhasset raising more than $900,000 for women’s health at the 26th annual Katz Institute for Women’s Health Luncheon and Fashion Show. It was also my distinct honor and privilege to be included among several honorees at The Safe Center LI’s Every Home A Safe Home gala, which advocates for survivors of abuse and neglect.

And, as president of the Nassau County Museum of Art, I took particular pride in attending several exhibitions this year including “Anything Goes: The Jazz Age” and “Wild Kingdom: 100 Years of Animal Art,” while the museum’s education department continues to expand its arts education programs to the people of Long Island.

I am also thrilled and very proud to announce that our arts and entertainment publication, Long Island Weekly, has become fully immersed in the digital age with an e-edition. Our readers are now able to have the entire issue of Long Island Weekly readily accessible on their phones and tablets each and every week. We will continue to grow this project into the new year and look forward to the many rewards of being a multimedia publishing company.

As we look ahead to 2019, I wish you and your families a wonderful holiday season and the happiest and healthiest new year.
