Talk Is Cheap

Last week was the final Express Sessions event of the season; a dozen live events brought together panelists and community members to discuss a variety of topics of importance to the community. As the break for a busy summer arrives, the question arises: Does it make a difference? The topic for the event last week in Sag Harbor focused on that village’s readiness for climate change and the perils it will bring — but, like other topics from throughout the fall, winter and spring, it was relevant for other villages and hamlets on the South Fork.

End of an Era

I learned today that the Sag Harbor Ladies Village Improvement Society has closed up shop. This brings back so many memories of my mother, Jane Mulvihill, and her good friend Gertie Payne, who were very active members in the 1950s and 1960s organizing house tours and raising money for, among other things, scholarships, establishing Marine Park, and planting trees throughout the village. I remember riding around with Charlie Whitmore as he and Mom scouted locations for the trees. I was maybe 4 or 5 years old. I have a photo of my sister Mary (8) and me (6) in the ... by Staff Writer

Of Catbirds and Robots

The catbird is back, and it’s a relief to hear his silly songs filling the hedgerow with joy. It is no joke, no hyperbole — joy is that sweet, warbling noise. The catbird is a honey-voiced mimic, Freddie Mercury to the mockingbird’s Janis Joplin. The catbird can hit it high or low, and he’ll fool you for a moment, and then he “mews.” He falls silent, looking at you as you look for him. Asparagus season started late, and furiously. If you know the stuff, if you’ve been coming eye to eye with it for 30 years, you can understand ... by Marilee Foster

Woman Charged With Burglary in Sag Harbor

An East Hampton woman was arrested early Sunday morning by Sag Harbor Village Police on several charges, including burglary in the second degree, which is classified as a violent felony, punishable by up to 15 years in state prison. However, the judge handling the arraignment late that morning, Sag Harbor Village Justice Carl Irace, questioned the structuring of the charges brought by police and the district attorney’s office. In addition to the burglary charge, Doris L. Villa Guichay, 38, is also charged with criminal mischief as a misdemeanor and harassment as a violation. According to police, at about 3 a.m. ... by T.E.
