Geothermal Energy Comes to Town
The Oyster Bay Western Waterfront is hoping to benefit from a new Long Island Power Authority program created to use existing geothermal forces to help cool and warm the site. The system has already been tested by the Scotto Brothers Enterprises, the developer/owner of a new, 145-room luxury hotel, the Inn at Fox Hollow, in Woodbury. The Scottos are also the part-owners of Chas. Rothmann's Steak House in East Norwich. NYS Governor George Pataki presented them with a $180,000 rebate check for using geothermal technology to heat and cool the new hotel at a ceremony on Wednesday, Feb. 27.

We were planning on a newer, bigger boat. Our search on the Internet led us to Cape Cod and a 38' center cockpit Moody. It was a little bigger than we needed, a little older than we wanted, but it was a "Blue Water Boat." We could cross an ocean in it.
