A Farmyard Murder Mystery

It isn’t always obvious what is killing the chickens. You are often left with only the evidence. At first, I thought it might have been domestic dogs — what they think is a squeaky-toy killing spree. Birds were here and there. From their torn bodies, trails of feathers tell of that fatal chase. Three are dead, and it is hard to know how many are missing. But the late-day damage also is consistent with a fox. Only I haven’t smelled one. Generally, before I feel the impact of a reemerging fox population, I can smell it. At first, they come ... by Staff Writer

Clearing Things Up

I am writing to correct some misinformation given in an article in the December 5 Western Edition of The Southampton Press article titled “Homeless Encampments Trouble Hamlet Residents.” In the article, the area churches participating in Hampton Bays are listed as: St. Rosalie’s, the Assembly of God and the Hampton Bays Methodist Church, with the Lutheran Church in Quogue also named. For your information, Maureen’s Haven began in the winter of 2002 under the auspices of Peconic Community Council. At that time, St. Mary’s Episcopal Church of Hampton Bays and the Mattituck Presbyterian Church were the first two churches to ... 9 Dec 2019 by Staff Writer

Racism In Our History

A bill to change the name of Robert Moses State Park — because of the racism of Mr. Moses — was introduced in Albany last week by State Assemblyman Daniel O’Donnell of Manhattan. An attorney, he grew up in Suffolk County, in Commack (and is an older brother of Rosie O’Donnell, the TV personality and author). His measure declares that “Robert Moses repeatedly abused his power to entrench racial and economic segregation.” Examples cited: When Moses built Jones Beach State Park, “he intentionally ordered the overpasses of the connected parkway too low for buses, so that poor people, particularly African-American ... by Staff Writer

Where Have You Gone, Lee Zeldin?

How They Voted

As a resident and property owner on the South Fork, I appreciate your recent article on the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo in June [“New Requirements For Landlords, And Rights For Tenants, Laid Out,” Residence,, November 25]. Your balanced analysis did a thorough job explaining the confusion and consequences that landlords now face. The article omitted one important aspect of this controversy; that is, which of our elected officials supported this bill? This lapse is surprising, given that our local media should encourage transparent governance and engaged citizenship, particularly ... by Staff Writer
