Bridgehampton School News, February 27

Bridgehampton School Juniors and seniors recently attended a full-day poetry writing workshop at the Watermill Center. The third annual event was led by English teacher Tom House. Students toured the center and listened to an introduction about its history and programs before selecting one of hundreds of fascinating objects from around the world in the center’s archives room to write ekphrastic poems – poems that take art or objects as their subject or inspiration. Students shared their impressive work at the end of the day in a roundtable discussion. Members of the National Honor Society and the National Junior Honor ... by My27east

Longing For Less

“Longing for Less: Living with Minimalism” by Kyle Chayka is 258 pages. It should practice what it preaches. The author experienced a kind of forced minimalism due to his job as an underpaid writer in New York. Marie Kondo didn’t have much to do with it. But it definitely signals a trend toward “tiny houses,” maybe fewer McMansions, and perhaps an appreciation of the soothing visual luxury of empty space and tchotchke-free surfaces. For the last 10 years, my husband and I rented our four-bedroom, four-bath house in Southampton Village in the summer to city people who wanted to be ... by Staff Writer

Mysteries Solved

“Fogging Up The FOIL” would have been a more apt title for the letter from Rob Coburn [“Clearing Up FOIL,” Letters, February 20] accusing, while not naming, me of making “ominous” and “fear-mongering” misstatements to mislead the public concerning the tainted Freedom of Information Law request that created so much mystery and left a lingering stench in Village Hall. As I am one of those named in that phantom FOIL, and Mr. Coburn is not, I hope I can clear up his misstatements with a few (easily attainable) facts. He states that, “contrary to repeated statements,” the FOIL request had ... by Staff Writer

Protect Our Water

This letter is to our town’s elected officials, appointed officials and the community. We look to those who govern, monitor developments and are tasked with addressing public health to also look after the well-being of homeowners and their rights. We are reading about pollution in groundwater all over Long Island created by commercial entities. This groundwater is where drinking water and home wells are drawn from, and this water has been infiltrated by chemicals and contaminants. Just as the town addresses the rights of developers, our officials should consider the rights of homeowners to have clean drinking water. In the ... by Staff Writer

The Road To Hell

A couple of weeks back, one reader thought my column was so “loony” that the men in white coats must be waiting outside my front door, straitjacket at the ready. They might have to stand in line. I’m almost afraid to look, but if there is a gaggle of code enforcement officers out there, too, I wouldn’t be surprised. I even had my LinkedIn profile pinged by the FBI the other day (true story!). I think they were looking for new recruits, but I’m too paranoid to be certain. My angst stems from a well-intentioned but somewhat sensational article that ... by Staff Writer

A Predictable Mess

It can’t be easy to be a moderate Democrat these days. Everywhere I look, Democratic government is under scrutiny for being out of touch with the majority values of this center-left country. From open borders to sanctuary cities and states, average American citizens are disgusted with the deliberate favoritism by Democrat leadership for the rights of illegal immigrants over the rule of law and common sense. Here in New York, the newly elected Democrats control both the Assembly and Senate. With their majority they have begun implementing their Liberal agenda — and it is a predictable mess. Almost every day, ... by Staff Writer
