Saying Goodbye

Every death in a community impacts someone. Many bring grief from dozens, even hundreds of people whose lives overlapped with the deceased. And then there are the rare few who cause an entire community’s knees to buckle. Robert J. Long Jr., who died far too young last week at 53, became principal at East Quogue School in 2000 and, 15 years later, was named superintendent of the tiny one-school district, K-6. Working with young children is a challenge, but Long was born to the task. A generation or more had at least one educator who was looking out for them. ... by Staff Writer

A Delicate Balance

A story from East Hampton Village last week highlighted an issue that could well be percolating beneath the service in many communities, as local volunteer ambulance corps seek a delicate balance of morale and necessary moves to provide reliable emergency care. A member of the East Hampton Ambulance Association was suspended after he complained about a village decision to add paid emergency medical technicians to the ambulance company, which has 40 volunteer members. He voiced those complaints to two of the new paid EMTs. The details surrounding the 30-day suspension, labeled an act of “workplace harassment” by Mayor Jerry Larsen, ... by Staff Writer

Summer Pop-ups

I don’t know why there are no yellowjackets, but it used to be that if you dropped a ripe watermelon and it split open on the hard dirt, a wasp would pick up on the scent and, in no time, the busted fruit would be covered in his kind. They gnaw, their black mouths munching into the pink, juicy walls, and the sticky juices flow so that they wade in puddles, slurping as they go. They dine with abandon. But now I can keep a half melon in my truck. I can leave it balanced, saucer-like, on the console so ... by Marilee Foster

Enablers Of Violence

Just when we thought we could relax for a minute and enjoy the rest of the summer, we have more concerns about violence in this country. The FBI executed a search warrant at Donald Trump’s residence in Florida. Rather than wait and find out more information, the supporters and enablers of Donald Trump immediately launched into their aggression and fear campaigns. Inevitably, these campaigns promote violence. The most egregious example of that this week was when Trump’s Truth Social platform published the names of the FBI agents that were allegedly involved in the execution of the search warrant.
