  •     A triumvirate of teachers live in Sagaponack, and spend their time tirelessly helping children with special needs — whether physical or learning-related — by providing therapy that helps build not only muscles but self-confidence. And they do it all without saying a word.

  •     A roomful of people, including East Hampton Town Supervisor Bill Wilkinson and Theresa Quigley, a town board member, listened on Friday as the East Hampton Village Board voted to reduce the allowable size of real estate and contractor signs from 7 square feet to 18 by 18 inches.
        Local brokers and builders have until at least June 1 to roll out the smaller size, and also to post them parallel to properties, instead of perpendicular.

  • A wedding for a young couple can sometimes be a way of acquiring, through gifts, the necessities to jump-start a home life. But when a couple have been together for over 20 years and are in need of nothing in particular, what do they do?
        For Bill Rosenthal and Jerry Gebo, who were recently legally married, it was a no-brainer. When the couple wed at Townline BBQ in Sagaponack on Nov. 11, they asked their guests to donate to Project MOST.

  •     “Les Liaisons Dangereuses,” the 18th-century French novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos about aristocratic power games and the lives they affect, has been adapted into every form imaginable. It can boast of at least seven versions on film, including two set in Korea, an opera, a radio series, and even a ballet. But it is the Christopher Hampton stage adaptation that has garnered the most attention in the Western world, first as a successful Broadway production and then as a successful Hollywood film in the 1980s.

  •     Tomorrow’s East Hampton Village board meeting will offer people a chance to air their opinions on the new proposed law limiting the size of real estate and contractor signs, and two other issues.

  •     It only took five minutes on March 7 for the East Hampton Village Design Review Board to end the East Hampton Library’s nine-year wait for site plan approval so that it can finally begin construction of its new children’s wing.
    “All we need now is a building permit,” Dennis Fabiszak, the library’s director, said after the meeting. “That will probably take a couple of weeks.”

  •    Yesterday marked the 14th birthday of our Jack Russell, Petie.
        Fourteen is pretty old for a Jack, and Petie is showing his age. Those formerly fiercely brilliant brain cells, which once allowed him the wherewithal to actually climb a chicken-wire fence to obtain the delicious decomposing deer leg on the other side (but not, unfortunately, to climb back and therefore Not Get Caught), have been all but extinguished.
