Tomato Time

The barn swallows are fledging their second set of young, and the whole huge family, the first fledge, too, perches along the grain auger. There are multiple nests in numerous barns, and by counts in our yard it has been a good year for them. They move like squadrons on wing if you are causing a disturbance anywhere, with a tractor or even with a dog running across the lawn. They will swoop in to collect the insects that fly from your wake. These are resident but migratory birds. As a farmer, I spend a fair amount of time with ... by Marilee Foster

Terrible Darkness

“Suffolk County was the first in the state to bring litigation,” noted Rob Calarco, presiding officer of the Suffolk County Legislature, about the lawsuit the county brought in 2016 against multiple defendants in connection with the plague of opioids that has caused many deaths in Suffolk County and elsewhere. Nassau County and the attorney general joined in the lawsuit. Thereafter, other governments in New York State got involved in it. And Suffolk County’s legal initiative “precipitated other municipalities across the country to bring their own lawsuits in their own jurisdictions or in federal court,” said Mr. Calarco.

A Field Of Dreams

The inspector stood a few feet from my porch. I did not expect to see him here, however; I had previously given him permission to enter the deer fence and inspect the crops that I have planted in the fields beside my home. I was exiting my house for the second time that morning. Soaked from the morning pick, I’d changed, and in fact was still changing — putting dry clothes back on — as I walked out the door and saw him. “I need to talk to you!” he said. He was red in the face. Embarrassed? Or flushed ... 20 Jul 2021 by Marilee Foster

A Final Word On The ARB

It is a sad tale, and disturbing as well, another instance of too little, too late in the public life of Sag Harbor Village. I was coming to the end of the third year of my time as chair of the Board of Historic Preservation and Architectural Review, commonly and hereafter known as the ARB, when Jay Bialsky first proposed the buildings at 2 West Water Street to our board. I had, of course, been following the course of this application through other local regulatory boards from the newspapers.
