Write What You Know

It was 1995, I think. I was hired by this newspaper to chronicle Sagaponack. The editor at the time, Peter Boody, and I agreed that, since not much happened in the tiny hamlet, it would be interesting if I wrote about life on the farm. “We don’t really have any agricultural columns,” he said. And, by means of encouragement, added, “You’re not a reporter.” I took his assignment seriously, and it wasn’t hard. Sagaponack was a dull, barely developed expanse best suited for potatoes. “Write what you know,” echoed the words of a college professor; all I came to know ... by Marilee Foster

VIEWPOINT: The Benefits Of Boredom

By Shari Adler Having been born and bred in Massachusetts, I must say that all topics and newsworthy stories related to the Kennedys had always been folklore in my childhood home. The one story that stood out in my mind, besides iterations of both gossip and tragedy, was the fact that the dashing 38-year-old John F. Kennedy, as a U.S. senator from Massachusetts, wrote a Pulitzer Prize-winning book, “Profiles in Courage,” while recuperating from spinal surgery in 1954. Even as a little girl, as soon as I was old enough to become aware of this book, I was so impressed ... 10 Aug 2020 by Shari Adler

A Choice Was Made

Suffolk County took quite a blow from Isaias last week. And if the track of the hurricane-turned-tropical-storm was 50 miles farther east when it hit us, it would have been much worse here. With gusts reaching more than 70 mph, there was a significant and extended loss of electricity from trees having fallen on electric lines and a shutdown of the Long Island Rail Road from trees falling on tracks. Fortunately, it was a fast-moving and thus relatively short-lived storm with punches of fierce wind rather than days of rain. The bad news: It was a sampling of what’s ahead. ... by Karl Grossman
