Why I’m So Cranky

I am cranky. Does anyone come to a full stop at a stop sign, or has the law changed? It seems to be the norm to roll on by, or, if you are really in a rush, just speed through. Yield signs are invisible to some drivers, and I assume giving turn signals is now considered passé. I never got the memo. It’s common knowledge that help is hard to find — but does anyone teach cashiers how to give change? I generally bag my own groceries, because I can, and it’s a time saver. But after all the items ... 26 Sep 2022 by Denise Gray Meehan

On the Move

“The water is coming — there’s no longer much doubt about that,” began an article in The Washington Post this month. A just-issued analysis, it reported, done by Climate Central, a Princeton, New Jersey-based nonprofit research group, determined that “hundreds of thousands of homes … and other properties” would “slip below swelling tide lines over the next few decades.” That increased sea level rise is already happening. The Climate Central researchers found, said The Post, that “nearly 650,000 individual, privately owned parcels across as many as 4.4 million acres of land” along the coastlines of the United States “are projected ... by Karl Grossman

Black Whaleship Captains Prove Their Mettle

Besides the wealth that whaling brought to New England and Sag Harbor, the whaling industry also became a unique opportunity for Black sailors, not only to escape slavery but also to be rewarded for their abilities. Author Skip Finley says as many as 20 or 30 percent of the thousands of men who participated in whaling were men of color. Often Black men who shipped out on whaling vessels from Sag Harbor were runaway or freed slaves from Virginia and Maryland. Crewing on a whale ship was hard, but far better than capture and a return to slavery. A further ... by Jim Marquardt

The Town of Southampton Youth Bureau continues to address food insecurity on the East End with two upcoming initiatives.

Retreat Events for Domestic Violence Awareness Month Are Set

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and The Retreat, a nonprofit agency that provides comprehensive domestic violence services for children and adults throughout Suffolk County, will offer insight, education and resources on its services and programs, partnering with the community to raise awareness and help stop the violence. Recognition of this widespread problem began in 1989 when Congress passed legislation to designate October as a time to focus on the challenges of domestic violence and create a voice for victims and survivors, noted a press release. Domestic violence can affect anyone, regardless of race, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation or economic ... by Staff Writer

Life’s Purpose

The worm who is eating the lettuce is pinkie sized. He’s chosen a romaine and he’s making a skeleton of it. All that is left of the outer leaves are the ribs. I pluck him off. I curl my own finger around him, then flick him backwards into the palm of my hand. Unlike many garden variety worms, this one cannot be extinguished between my fingers, the caterpillar is too big. The deed is not so easily done. If we believe life has a purpose, if only a biological one, killing anything has a cost because it creates a void; ... 21 Sep 2022 by Marilee Foster

Long Island Women vs. the ‘Lobster-Backs’

Typical of an invading army, British soldiers in the Revolutionary War thought it would be easy to take advantage of American colonists who chose to stay behind and protect their homesteads, instead of crossing the sound to Connecticut as so many did. But in a few instances, they found that it wasn’t always easy. In fact, they sometimes found, to their surprise, that women on the East End weren’t about to kowtow to the enemy they called “lobster-backs” for their bright red tunics. In 1966, William Donaldson Halsey, collected tales of a few of these confrontations and published them in ... 19 Sep 2022 by Jim Marquardt
