  •    Whether it’s the first televised dance steps of Elvis Presley or man’s first steps on the moon, Joe Lauro is the go-to guy for archival film footage.
        His specialty and passion are one-of-a-kind music performances of all genres, and his company, Historic Films in Greenport, boasts over 50,000 hours of news and entertainment footage from 1895 to the present day, pieces of which can be seen daily on television networks, on Broadway, and in museums.

  • Senator Kirsten Gillibrand discussed food safety and other issues important to her during a visit to the Quail Hill Farm in Amagansett on Sunday morning.
  •     A 10-foot wall collapsed last week during the restoration of a four-story section within the former Bulova watchcase factory.        

  •    Robert Anderson, the head of security at the Sloppy Tuna nightclub in Montauk, has confiscated over 200 forms of fake identification so far this season, he said on Sunday. The expertise he has acquired during his 26 years as a full-time bouncer also helps the other bars in town, he said, since those under-age hopefuls will no longer have the false documents to try to get in elsewhere.

  • Whole salmon fillet
    1 lemon
    Rosemary, dill, or other herbs


    Place the fish on two large sheets of aluminum foil. Squeeze on some lemon juice and place some herbs on the fish. Seal the fillets well in the foil packet, and place in the top rack of your dishwasher. Do not add detergent.
    Run the dishwasher through a complete cycle including the drying cycle. (This will be the first time you realize just how long a cycle really is.) When the cycle is complete, the fish will be cooked just right.

  •    About two dozen members of the Conservative Synagogue of the Hamptons in Sag Harbor celebrated their new cookbook recently with a “Munch ’n’ Brunch” at the home of Marcy and Emil Braun in Bridgehampton. In attendance were many of the women and men who provided the recipes, who brought tastes of dishes including flourless gateau de mousse chocolate, mushroom quiche, Aunti Gertie’s apple pie Canarsie, and Egyptian charoset.

  • “It is not the most lighthearted way to start a weekend in the Hamptons, but it is relevant,” said Oliver Niedermaier, who hosted the party with his wife, Constanze, to draw attention to the issue of slavery in the modern world.
  •     Members of the Sag Harbor Gym on Bay Street can now look forward to having smoothies, juices, protein shakes, and salads before or after their workouts, following a decision by the village zoning board of appeals on Tuesday that a juice and smoothie bar is consistent with the spot’s primary use as a fitness center.
        Timothy Platt, the village’s building inspector, had asked the board to determine whether village code would allow a juice bar at the gym.

  •    Triggered by an ongoing stalemate with the Sag Harbor Police Benevolent Association after mediation failed to arrive at a new contract and facing a state cap on increases in taxes, questions have continued to hover around the Sag Harbor Village Board about whether it would be financially prudent to disband the Police Department or whether it should enter into an inter-municipal agreement with another policing agency, allowing the village to retain the department but reduce its size.
