Altered for Kindness

“Yo, shell and stick guy get a job.” These are the words scrawled on the fence at the beach entrance. The fence, built years ago to keep vehicles from further eroding the steep access, has been wrecked once by a storm and several times by people. But, more recently, like many unmonitored flat surfaces, it has been a place for personal ads and public notices — and, like this one, private opinions. The black words stood out against the wood fence, perhaps the work of a Sharpie permanent marker. Down, below the fence, on the edge of sand that has ... by Marilee Foster

The Best Shot

I recently had the pleasure of visiting my old stomping ground in Flanders to attend the Flanders Riverside Northampton Community Association’s meet the candidates event. I was so excited to hear Maria Moore speak about her accomplishments as mayor of Westhampton Beach and am now more convinced that she’s the right woman for the job. Back in 2015, the Town Board approved an overlay zoning district that would see the redevelopment of the most economically disadvantaged hamlet on all of Long Island — Riverside. This revitalization has been stalled for almost a decade, waiting for a sewer district, and lacking ... by Staff Writer

Point Made

In a Letter to the Editor [“Rotting Fish,” Letters, September 28], a Hampton Bays resident pointed out that the administrator of Southampton’s Land Management Department also allegedly consults for the Town of Riverhead. I made the same point a few years ago when I argued that Southampton’s former land management administrator worked for the Village of Westhampton Beach. In another letter [“Follow the Process,” Letters, September 28], a director of the Bridgehampton Civic Association argued that too often Southampton grants variances without requiring evidentiary showing, thereby shifting the burden to the community to prove detriment. This point was also made ... by Staff Writer

Fond Memory

It was with deep sadness that I read that the great Baltimore Orioles third baseman Brooks Robinson passed away recently at the age of 86. He is considered one of the greatest defensive third basemen of all time and was known as the “human vacuum cleaner” for his stellar fielding at the hot corner. He was the American League MVP in 1964, hitting .317 with 28 homers and 118 RBIs. But his death brought back memories of my contact with him in 1957. I was working out with the Orioles at Yankee Stadium, before being signed to a minor league ... by Staff Writer
