Need for Speed

We see lots of fancy cars in summertime, but the fall is when they really peak. Whether you like cars or not, you’ll find yourself stunned, slack-jawed, as one after the other a roaring blur of outrageous colors goes past. Noisier, faster and more expensive than a carnival ride, these cars both incite and satisfy, for almost anyone, a childlike thrill of fear and delight. Stand near the rumble of a powerful motor and you’ll feel it consume your own heartbeat. These cars, though many are modern, have history here.

“To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born,” the Roman philosopher and statesman Cicero said, “is to remain always a child. For what is the worth of human life, unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history?” We study history but often focus on events writ large — wars, world leaders, towering figures and events — but often remain far too ignorant of those who walked the same patch of earth before we were born, the men and women who made the more modest history of where we live.

Southampton School District Expands Vocational Offerings, Eyes Innovative Course on Shellfish

Southampton School District is considering four new vocational programs to add to its high school roster — and, if approved, one will be the first of its kind in New York State. Tentatively titled “Clamming and Shellfish Harvesting Business,” the one-year course would tie into the district’s marine biology program, explained Superintendent of Schools Nicholas Dyno, building on its successful fish hatchery program while adding a new component: shellfish. “It would be a unique program that would also teach you Shinnecock history and culture as part of the clamming business, and meet the needs of our students,” he said last ... by Michelle Trauring

Firm Presents Results of Survey on Lifetime Benefits for Elected Officials at Southampton Village Work Session

During the 2023 Southampton Village election cycle back in the spring, the issue of whether or not elected officials should be entitled to so-called “benefits for life” was a debate that came up frequently during meetings at Village Hall. Former Mayor Jesse Warren, who ultimately lost his reelection bid to current Mayor Bill Manger, pressed the trustees time and again on the issue, stating his desire to repeal the current policy in the village, where elected officials who serve for five or more years are entitled to health care benefits for life upon leaving office. Manger, who was a trustee ... by Cailin Riley

Nearly 20 years after it acquired an overgrown lot located at 51 Vail Avenue in Riverside, the Southampton Town Board signed off on a transfer of the property to the Town of Southampton Housing Authority during Tuesday’s evening Town Board meeting. That property would be developed with housing for low-moderate or middle-income households, as part of the town’s ongoing effort to stem a growing affordable housing crisis.
