Members of the Southampton Rose Society collected roses from members last week; arranged them in over 50 vases; and delivered them to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, the residents/staff at Hamptons Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, the Southampton Fire Department, Southampton Village Police Station and the Southampton Village Volunteer Ambulance headquarters.

The Creep

We had a very late frost this spring. Outside my door on the 25th of May, the lawn was white with morning ice. Now, September, and just fall, we have a bookend on the growing season: This morning, in this same cool, low spot, the lawn grows white as the freezing conditions permit. Almost every evening, I take my dogs and my binoculars for a walk toward the pond. We walk on the grass landing strip that separates the two farm fields. It’s about 50 feet wide and a third of a mile long, and it satisfies both the USDA ... 22 Sep 2020 by Marilee Foster

The Poison Pill

State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. is preparing legislation to require the Long Island Power Authority to allow Long Islanders to make use of Community Choice Aggregation in the same way the rest of the utility ratepayers in New York State can. “My fear from the beginning was that LIPA would stick a poison pill in any CCA program for Long Island — and it has,” says Mr. Thiele, whose district includes East Hampton and Southampton towns. Meanwhile, the Town of Southampton and the citizens’ initiative Choice Community Power are spearheading a petition drive on this, too. A petition to ... 21 Sep 2020 by Karl Grossman

The Second-Hardest Task Ever

Going off to Vietnam in the fall of 1970 was not the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I was young, patriotic, naïve, ready for adventure, confident in my leaders, and ready to strike a blow for democracy. I had new Navy Wings of Gold on my chest, the armor that would protect me from the enemy and bring me home safely. No, that wasn’t hard to do at all. When I was ordered to go back for a second tour, in late 1971, that was the hardest thing I have ever done. By then, I had a family and a ... by Phil Keith

Death Out There

The field of buckwheat, under the weight of its light flowers turning to heavy seed, collapses in the rain. How quickly, once summer begins to wane, things change. Now, the groundhog den is easily visible. But the groundhog is gone, perhaps killed by the foxes that took over his home. The rabbits should be on notice. As should the chickens, as should I. The air is lit with the smell of overripe cucumbers and the surrounding sky full of tree swallows. The birds are heading south but delaying here, over the home farm where the habitat of fall harvest has ... by Marilee Foster

End The Scourge

“We’ve had a recent urgent update on your Medicare coverage,” said the robocall. A second announcement followed: “We’ve been trying to reach you concerning your car’s extended warranty.” Caller ID won’t help you these days to know that it’s a robocall: The phone number and place where the call is supposedly coming from often are listed as a nearby community — and sometimes where you live. As I’m writing this column, I received a robocall — the caller ID said it was made from Sag Harbor — saying: “This is from the Social Security Administration … Your Social Security number ... by Karl Grossman

Porter Opens Parrish

The Parrish Art Museum is open! And who better to welcome us back but Fairfield Porter and painter friends Robert Dash, Jane Freilicher and Alex Katz? Porter is a pleasing-to-the-eye painter, influenced by Pierre Bonnard and David Hockney. This exhibit focuses on his interiors; it reminds us COVID-19 quarantined folks to be sympathetic to our interior life. One painting of three figures at the Porter home in Penobscot, Maine, shows them all looking in different directions, each in their own alienated COVID-19 world. His portraits of his wife, Ann, portray her as dumpy and frumpish. She could be his mother. ... 14 Sep 2020 by Joanne Pateman

Don’t Mess With My Montauk

I’ve mostly sat out the “cancel culture” craze, tending to clutch my Tate’s or Doritos tight to my chest on the way to the parking lot of the Water Mill Shell station, wondering idly whether this product or that may get me a hearty clap on the back or a punch in the face from a total stranger. But like so much else right now, it’s out there and in your face and hard to avoid, whether you like or not. It’s on the Resolute Desk, for God’s sake, making me think of Goya products for the first time since ... 8 Sep 2020 by Tim Motz

COVID-19: Caught In History

Is it only nine months? Nine months ago, I was still chairman of the Architectural Review Board in Sag Harbor Village, still going to meetings twice a month, speaking to an often packed meeting room. COVID-19 was barely in the news, and only if you read The New York Times, attentively, just a whisper on the horizon of the Far East. Now, you can no longer go to a football game or a concert without taking your life in your hands, you can’t have dinner in a restaurant or even give a dinner party without taking the same risk, you ... by Anthony Brandt
