Lois Marie Viola peacefully passed away on April 11th, 2024 in Southampton, NY.

She leaves behind her loving sister Susan Viola (Arthur) and countless friends. Lois graduated from the University of Miami and attended the New York School of Interior Design.

Her love of decorating led to the opening of the antique furniture store, BitterSweet Interiors in Soho. After many successful years in NYC her love for the East End and the beautiful beaches brought her to Bridgehampton, where she opened the second location of BitterSweet Interiors.

Lois had a keen eye for art, fashion and had an endless love of travel that took her to places all over the world. Her laughter, sense of humor and friendship to so many will forever be missed.

We love you Lois Marie Viola! May your next journey be the best one yet!

A celebration of life will be planned at a later date.

Gold Stars and Dunce Caps

GOLD STAR To Carolyn Munaco and a group of volunteers who went out early in the morning on a cold, rainy, blustery day to save horseshoe crabs that had been trapped while spawning at a beach in Hampton Bays. High water allowed the crabs safely onto the beach to lay eggs, but then the crabs found themselves blocked from returning to the water by an erosion control structure made of stone and wire. A “bucket brigade” of volunteers boosted the crabs up and over and back into the water. It was a great example of human beings causing a problem ... by Editorial Board

Pea Soup

The storm was horrible, and its timing, too: A solid ocean chill sat upon us, and young, tender things perished. The first planting of cucumbers lost. Though covered, I couldn’t fool them. The weather was not ready, the conditions not right; nature imposes another round. You hope. There were eight trays held out, still living inside the greenhouse — they weren’t exposed. Sit tight, I tell them, the sun eventually will come out. So, too, lost are the baby birds. Washed from ill-conceived nests near gutters, swept from the branches, are featherless hatchlings, ill-timed in their birth. Poof. Little bodies, ... by Marilee Foster

Moral Clarity

The Democratic primary in Congressional District 1 presents a choice between John Avlon, a well-known political journalist, and Nancy Goroff, a former State University of New York chemistry professor. Avlon has been quick to identify the most important issues. He highlights women’s reproductive rights and the affordability of life on Long Island as critical, but he repeatedly cites the need to protect democratic values and institutions as motivating his run for office. In contrast, his opponent began her race with an email about climate change that sounded like it was left over from her unsuccessful 2020 campaign. Though the topic ... by Staff Writer
