National Amnesia

I have just come back from eight magic days of traveling with my 13-year-old California granddaughter to show her Vienna, the beauty of Salzerkammergut, the historic charms of Salzburg. We listened to the excellent voices at the Vienna State Opera, saw the Klimt collection at the Belvedere, the Quattro Cento at the Kunsthistorische Museum, the current Munch exhibit at the Albertina. We walked in the Vienna Woods, rode the giant Ferris wheel, ate Kaiserschmarrn with plum sauce at Demel. On an inside wall of the Karlskirche, we saw a wall plaque that exhorted us to remember and honor “the brave ... 11 Apr 2022 by Staff Writer

More Inconvenience

At a time when the world is trying to deal with climate crisis, and the Hamptons are dealing with the overwhelming traffic, the Long Island Rail Road started the South Fork Commuter Connection to help local residents travel to work and back home. Now this necessary means of travel will stop on May 20 — to accommodate the New York City bullet train every Friday, which will just add more cars on a very overwhelmed road system, and to create inconvenience experienced by the appreciative local commuters on the South Fork Commuter Connection.

The Time Is Now

While I applaud ridding the East End of defunct gas stations [“Town Planners Analyze A Trio Of Gas Station Upgrades,” 27east.com, April 5], would we be missing the perfect opportunity to build in charging infrastructure for electric vehicles? Each of these three stations can be developed from the beginning with a few DC fast chargers, while planning for the future needs of our communities by ensuring that these stations are built for scale, as more and more electric vehicles and trucks are on the roads. Amazon’s commitment alone to use electric “last-mile delivery” trucks, would keep these stations busy, given ... by Staff Writer

The Obvious Choice

I am writing in reference to the article “Residents Express Frustration With Ongoing Southampton Village Police Chief Search” by Cailin Riley [27east.com, March 30]. The article implied (or I inferred) that the village is likely looking to find a person to fill that role from outside the community. As mentioned in the article, at least some residents would prefer someone local and invested in the community. However, the article did not point out that Sue Hurteau is a local. I have had the great pleasure of knowing Lieutenant Sue Hurteau for over 30 years. She went to Tuckahoe and then ... by Staff Writer

Lights Out

April 22 to 29 is International Dark Sky Week. We who live in Southampton Town and Southampton Village are lucky to have local Dark Sky laws that protect our view of the night sky and prevent light pollution, which is harmful to wildlife, trees, human health and, of course, enjoyment of a star-filled night. Recent research shows that 83 percent of the global population lives under a light-polluted sky. We don’t want to be part of this statistic. Our natural and rural heritage is threatened when we allow light pollution to go unchecked. If you think there is a light ... by Staff Writer

Rewriting History

There is a big difference between history repeating itself and a wholesale rewrite of it. The vice chair of the Southampton Democrat Committee, Andrea Klausner, makes the bold statement, “The Democratic Party’s approach to strengthening the economy has always worked” [“History Repeating,” Letters, April 7]. I’m not an economist but I have lived a few years under Democrat administrations, and that dog won’t hunt. It took World War II to propel the United States out of the Depression and to spark an economic expansion, not President Franklin D. Roosevelt or his expansion of government programs. During the Dwight Eisenhower years, ... by Staff Writer
