Built To Last

“The end,” I say. “No more.” I’ve been watching potatoes roll past me for three days straight. We’re trying to get them from the field and, since the market price is so low, into storage as fast as we can. Twenty-six tons one day, 24 the next. I managed to sell one trailer, so that was 20 tons less that didn’t go to the basement. My friend, who long ago left potato farming for fruit, stops by. We are farmers, but we are not without philosophy, and I feel more at peace every time this old friend, this friend of ... by Marilee Foster

Planting A Dream

Broccoli likes it cool; so do all the traditional fall crops. In too much heat, these hearty varieties “bolt” — go to flower — or, worse, they rot. In fall, the shortening days, the diminishing heat, generally causes growth to slow. And, yet, October was feeling like June: hot, humid. Tomatoes just keep coming.

It is hard not to note the whiff of opportunity in a longer ... 19 Oct 2021 by Marilee Foster

A New Season Upon Us

When I see the rows of bright yellow school buses in military formation waiting to pick up and deliver young passengers, I know we are in a new season. A page has been turned, like the leaves that will soon turn their fall colors of burnt orange, sienna and gold. The buses look like giant bugs with their black windscreen eyes. I never took the bus; I took the subway during my four years at Girls’ High. The exception being when I sprained my ankle playing basketball, and my friend Liz drove me to and from school. My first day ... 18 Oct 2021 by Joanne Pateman

The Big Race

The contest for district attorney is the leading race in Suffolk County this year. In a county with a long record of governmental corruption, and with such major criminal issues as illegal drug dealing and, in recent years, the murderous activities of the MS-13 gang, the position of DA is highly important — indeed, some in Suffolk County politics have termed it the most important position in all of county government. This year, running on the Democratic ticket for DA is the incumbent, Timothy Sini of Babylon, who was elected in 2017 and took office in 2018. He is opposed ... by Karl Grossman
