Foresight 2020

Sunset is a thin crimson streak. It’s a steady northwest wind but not cold. With January like this, warm as April and the daffodils beside the barn already early and inches high, what is one to think? What would Dick Hendrickson think? Mr. Hendrickson (1912-2016) was the living epitome of historic Bridgehampton. He was a writer, a farmer, a gun collector and a poet. He was a storyteller, so fascinated by weather and steadfast enough to chronicle the temperature and conditions outside his door every day over 85 years. He says in his book, “Winds of the Fishtail”: “Beware the ... by Staff Writer

Austen And Alcott

The classics never go out of style. In fact, they seem to be having a revival. Jane Austen’s “Sanditon,” her last novel, left unfinished, has been made into an eight-part series on PBS.

What Integrity Means

The editor of a women’s magazine had called me up and asked me to write a piece on teaching kids to read, and I had agreed to do it. Writing magazine pieces was how I made my living. At the time, in the early 1980s, the question of how to teach reading was much in dispute. One side favored rote learning in a system called phonics, which was how I was schooled in reading, although not how I learned. My mother’s mother taught me to read, at the age of 4, before I even went to school, by sitting me ... 27 Jan 2020 by Staff Writer

The Skin Of Our Teeth

A former U.S. Air Force missile base in Westhampton — set up to use nuclear-tipped missiles to shoot out of the sky Soviet bombers feared to be flying over or near Long Island to bomb New York City and other targets — may be designated a high-pollution state Superfund site. Suffolk County Health Commissioner Dr. James Tomarken last month said his agency “was informed … by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation that the former BOMARC Missile Base is being considered as a potentially inactive hazardous waste disposal site.” It will be listed, he said, as a state ... by Staff Writer
