Walk The Walk

Take a hike, to fight asthma and lung disease, cancer, drunk driving, and to support Long Island's only food bank

This week, among other topics of interest, we mused about hydrogen fuel, sister-brother accessory apartments (no, its not incest), volunteerism (its alive and well), your local civic associations, assault rifles, Ann Coulter and her ilk, virtual life on Long Island, and the future of planet earth.

Truly, there's something for everyone on The Community Alliance blog! Don't forget to post your comments, and to write us at

Guest blogposts of community interest are most welcome. [Hey, its your Long Island. Talk it up!]

Now, get walking. . .
