Students from both Culinary Arts and some Spanish classes savored food with a distinctly Mexican influence at Union Cantina in Southampton recently. The luncheon included enchiladas, tacos, and burritos and ended on a sweet note with a rich tres leches cake. Grateful students and chaperones were even treated to a tour of the kitchen to see how the food was prepared and gave them a behind the scenes glimpse at a working Mexican Restaurant.

On Friday, April 27, senior Jalyn Hopson graduated from the Suffolk County Police Youth Academy, a rigorous training program for local area students who are interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement. The program is coordinated by Eastern and Western Suffolk BOCES and the Suffolk County Police Department. Jalyn is in the process of completing her secondary year of training in the law enforcement program at Riverhead BOCES and was honored to be picked to attend the academy.

The Bridgehampton Oceanography Club recently got a chance to tag Shredfin, a 7 ½ ft. sand tiger shark who lives at the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead. The club has been working toward the eventual goal of tagging a juvenile white shark in the open waters to help gather data for various science research organizations. Thanks to Paddlers for Humanity, Greg Metzger of Southampton High School and the Long Island Aquarium, the club took the next step in the journey towards tagging juvenile white sharks. The Long Island Aquarium offered a great opportunity by letting the team involved have access to their sharks and work with an employee there during a feeding to help get one of the tags on an actual shark. The test run gave a lot of information about the clamp system and the data collection process. These trials will make their trips out on the open ocean much more error free and efficient. The tag that the Bridgehampton Oceanography Club is using is unique and if they are able to tag a juvenile white shark, it would be the first and only one to have done so in the Atlantic Ocean. This data is valuable to the scientific community and would help the team achieve their goal of being a part of the network of scientists who try to better understand the oceans. In June and September students will be out on boats and will be operating the tag as well as documenting this process with video under the guidance of Oceanography Club leaders Jeffery Neubauer, Patrick Aiello and Danielle Doscher.
