Unique Law

I just attempted to order my high-strength reading glasses on Amazon, as I have done for over 15 years. I was surprised and angered when my order of five pairs of reading glasses, 6.0 strength, for $14.99 was rejected — with a notation that my order cannot be delivered to my address. I soon discovered that there is a law unique to New York that reading glasses with a strength over 2.75 cannot be shipped in New York State. This is outrageous. This 72-year-old senior citizen, instead of spending just $14.99 for five pairs of my essential reading glasses, will ... 30 Jan 2023 by Staff Writer

Liberty Gardens Lies

I attended Ralph Fasano’s first meeting at Rogers Memorial Library when he proposed this housing. He did, in fact, state that this was affordable rentals for the working class. I questioned him at that time about the entrance/exit at the proposed site. He stated that would be no problem, he could get a light there. I, along with other attendees, questioned that, because I live in a community that has the same situation, with no light and plenty of accidents. Mr. Fasano is quoted in The Southampton Press, January 26, saying that the town accepted his application knowing that the ... by Staff Writer

A Rare Kind of Store

I am an unusual woman, in that I am not much of a shopper, but I love clothes. Which is why finding Debbie Ohana and DeeJay’s decades ago was a game changer for me [“Boutique Clothing Store DeeJay’s Will Close After More Than 40 Years in Business in Southampton Village,” 27east.com, January 17]. Debbie herself has impeccable taste and, as a buyer, she chooses styles that are timeless and quality that lasts forever. I have items I bought at DeeJay’s 15, 20 years ago, which I continue to wear and get complimented on. Debbie knew that I took a long ... by Staff Writer

Games We Play

My father was a card player. Solitaire was the first card game he taught me. I must have been 8 or 9. It was in a rented summer cottage called “Tree Top,” steps from Tiana Bay. It was sweep-in-sweep-out tiny and didn’t have a TV. Paper dolls and coloring books, our usual indoor entertainment, were losing their appeal. One night, I walked into the kitchen, where my father was hunched over the table smoking a Lucky Strike while he placed seven cards in a row. I asked what he was doing. He said that he was playing solitaire. He winked: ... by Denise Gray Meehan

Trustee Nonsense

On Tuesday, January 24, I attended a Southampton Village Board meeting where the trustees again acted like peevish children, ruthlessly attacking the mayor when they should be working on the business issues of the village [“Acrimony Between Trustees and Warren Has Grown; Mayor Says Tensions Are Politically Motivated,” 27east.com, January 25]. Issues like an outlandish budget of $33 million, when Sag Harbor provides the same village services for $13 million. Issues like an arcane system of determining “assessed values” that forces residents of Windward Way, Dale Street, Willow Street and Breese Lane to pay three times, in relation to value, ... by Staff Writer

She is survived by her sisters, Pat and Donna; her son, Eddie and his wife, bonus daughter Michele; three grandkids, Awesome Ambriele, Winner Saryna, and the Great Kirk; as well as two pudding head dogs and a little wooden head.

Creative Solution

A group of environmentally aware Hamptonites are again making an effort to encourage the Parrish Art Museum to install solar panels on the museum’s iconic roof. Such an enormous institution uses an enormous amount of energy, I am sure. I’ve been involved in environmental protection for the last 12 years, and I have an idea that might help the museum choose solar energy. I propose that the Parrish organize a competition asking artists to submit their ideas of what would be an example of “when art meets solar.” Let artists expand on their vision for how renewable energy can be ... by Staff Writer
