Hampton Bays Rotary Club partnered with King Kullen to donate $1,575 in gift cards to St. Rosalie's Food Pantry. Said Rotary President Mark Strecker, "We choose to donate gift cards rather than food because it enables flexibility for the pantry to purchase the items that they are most in need of at the time, rather than accepting donated food that they may be well-stocked with. Also, the gift cards empower the recipients to purchase foods that are important and special to them - maybe a traditional holiday food item and not necessarily what the pantry felt was special, possibly helping to preserve cultural traditions." They presented the donation on Friday. Left to right, Terry McGrath, HB Rotarian; Catherine Andrejack, Director, St. Rosalie’s Food Pantry; Mark Strecker, President, HB Rotary Club.

Trump Local Ties

Suffolk County has not only been the base of one of Donald Trump’s most loyal supporters in Congress, Lee Zeldin, but it’s also been the base of an intensely pro-Trump father-and-daughter combination of billionaire Robert Mercer and Rebekah Mercer. Further, in 2019, Donald Trump Jr. bought a house in Bridgehampton, and there has been discussion in political circles about his seeking to run for public office from Suffolk County. “The Reclusive Hedge-Fund Tycoon Behind The Trump Presidency” was the heading of an extensive article about Mr. Mercer in The New Yorker magazine in 2017. Mr. Mercer “has funded an array ... 18 Jan 2021 by Karl Grossman

Ins And Outs

Last week, and maybe yet again, our highest institutions of law are under literal siege. When I sit to write the “In and Outs” for the coming year, it is a rambling fantasy and not an act of observation or even statistics. My annual tally goes alphabetically but not consecutively. Trends in Architecture In: We finally have small houses and “glamping” tents to accommodate the occasional gathering or art collection. Also in “container homes,” homes made from shipping containers. Out: We have the large and excessive use of space. Trends in Exercise I love this part of living in Sagg. ... by Marilee Foster

A Dark, Dark Stain

“A Single Day Shakes … One Nation to the Core,” said one front-page headline. As the attack by rioters on the Capitol shook the nation, it also shook this area and this state — hard. As Rob Colarco, the presiding officer of the Suffolk County Legislature, declared: “I watched with shock and horror as the United States Capitol was stormed by rioters today … This deadly attack on a national institution … is an assault on our country and what we stand for.” Governor Andrew Cuomo said: “The cornerstone of our democracy is the peaceful transfer of power.

The Bars We Miss The Most

Raise your hand if you’ve heard from officialdom recently, “But what can we do to make sure the bars survive the pandemic?” You haven’t, I’d be willing to bet! And, yet, what would our communities be without our gathering places, our sports-viewing emporiums, our “God-I-need-to-sit-back-and-bang-back-a-cold-one-with-a-few-people-who-get-why-this-is-important” lifelines? I have some bona fides in commenting on this topic, having ranked the best bars on the South Fork for four different publications (talk about being typecast!). It is a role I take seriously. I expect I will go to my grave arguing that bars represent the greatest — because, the truest — reflection ... by Tim Motz
