  • Stephen L. Marley Jr. didn’t just teach history, he was a keeper of it. Mr. Marley, an East Hampton High School teacher for 32 years, also coached the school’s golf and winning junior varsity basketball teams in the 1960s and he played on and managed a number of men’s slow-pitch softball teams over 30 years, keeping their score books.

    Even years later, if anyone had a question about a game’s outcome, they would call him, his wife, Corinne Marro Marley said.

  • Roger Waters of Pink Floyd fame may have been the big draw for music lovers attending a benefit on Saturday for Edwina von Gal’s Perfect Earth initiative, but there was plenty of other talent on hand to support the cause.
  • The bubbles were flowing, and so was the laughter, as performers from the Big Apple Circus's Clown Care Unit delighted partygoers at Mary Jane and Charles Brock's house in East Hampton on Sunday.
  • It’s time to get out the backpacks, stock up on supplies, get to know this year’s bus schedule, and enjoy those last few days out of the classroom. School starts on Wednesday in all the local districts but Bridgehampton, where students report for their first day of classes on Sept. 8.

    At the Montauk, Springs, and Wainscott Schools, the Child Development Center of the Hamptons charter school, and the East Hampton Middle and High Schools, all students will have a regular schedule on Wednesday.

  • As if the cause itself wasn’t worthy enough, the fact that the legendary Lou Reed played at the first fund-raiser for the landscape designer Edwina von Gal’s Azuero Earth Project in 2012 definitely made people stand up and take notice of the tiny organization working predominantly in rural Panama.

  • When the Big Apple Circus presents a preview of its new show, “Metamorphosis,” at Guild Hall on Aug. 24, it will be the first time the artists in this year’s production will perform together.
  • After detecting heightened levels of blue-green algae in Georgica Pond, the East Hampton Town Trustees agreed Thursday evening to temporarily prohibit shellfishing or fishing there and have advised users of the pond to take precautions.
  • Richard G. Hendrickson, a volunteer United States Cooperative weather observer since 1930, will be honored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for his longstanding service on Sunday.
  • With the last days of school approaching, the East Hampton Town Parks and Recreation Department is gearing up for a summer full of activities for young people, from sailing and swimming lessons to games and crafts programs and tennis, soccer, volleyball, and basketball clinics. Most begin the week of June 30, and advance sign-up is required, as space is limited.

  • When I’m not busy working or cooking three different meals for the four different members of my family, I can usually be found folding laundry.

    That sounds like such a stereotype, and it’s a lie, really, because I can never actually manage to fold all the clean laundry in the house before the next pile of dirty laundry creeps up on me. I am like Sisyphus, endlessly pushing my rock up the hill, only this rock is made of tangles of clean socks, wrinkled pants, crumpled shirts, and dishtowels.
