Enforce The Law

About one month ago, a fellow came to our door offering of a bottle of wine. He told us he lived two streets away, and that he and his wife were planning a 40th birthday party at the end of July, and the wine was to thank us in advance for our tolerance of this outdoor event, which would include music. We were impressed that at least he had the sensitivity to realize that this would be an intrusion. So when the big day came, we made arrangements to have dinner out and then to be indoors with our windows ... by Staff Writer

Reason To Hope

I have really enjoyed seeing the yellow Hope balloons all over the Village of Southampton in the past few weeks. Importantly, this week in our country there were finally a few events that really did give me reason to hope. First was that the people of Kansas resoundingly voted that they do not wish to ban abortion. Finally, this decision was put in the hands of average Americans, and they spoke. Recently, only judges and legislators have been the ones making those life-altering decisions. Then there was the trial of Alex Jones, where the jury, speaking for average Americans, resoundingly ... by Staff Writer

Lock Your Doors

Recently, I watched two full-grown males rush my house. One went to my neighbor’s door, which is an attached duplex, and the other rushed up on my porch, and swung my screen door open with a lot of force. He proceeded to bang on my door. The same happened next door. Question: If you see two guys rush your house with force, what would your initial thought be? My neighbor is ill and on oxygen. She was scared for her life. The police picked up the intruders and had the gall to only write how they explained it, eliminating my ... by Staff Writer

Erasing History

Whether it’s called “disassembly” or “demolition,” the 1745 Captain John Sandford House, once at the northwest corner of Paul’s Lane and Ocean Road in Bridgehampton, disappeared over a few days this past July. Now, only three or four recognizable and authentic houses in the saltbox style remain in Bridgehampton. This process of erasing the hamlet’s colonial and Revolutionary built environment has a long history but has accelerated in recent decades, in contrast to the preservation accomplishments of the Village of Sagaponack. (Note: Circa 1800, the total number of colonial houses in both communities numbered over 200.) On May 31, I ... by Staff Writer

Road Rules

Electronic bicycles, or e-bikes, seem to be everywhere all of a sudden. The bikes, with electric motors that can propel them at speeds up to 30 mph, have taken off, so to speak, this summer on the East End, with adults hoping to avoid the worst of the grueling traffic that makes up the morning and afternoon commute, and also with younger riders, who have found the new hip way to get around town. They seem to be a great way to beat the traffic — and a step in the right direction to help protect the environment, bypassing the ... by Staff Writer
