  •     A group of loyal Java Nation customers carried the coffee roaster out the doors of the Sag Harbor shop early Sunday evening like pallbearers grieving over the end of an era.
        Having lost its lease in the Shopping Cove off Main Street, the coffee shop, owned by Cheryl and Andres Bedini, was moving after 17 years.

  •     Classically trained student musicians from three South Fork schools will play in a concert on Sunday at 4 p.m. at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor to benefit Katy’s Courage. The not-for-profit was created to honor Katy Stewart, a 12-year-old who died from a rare form of pediatric liver cancer.
        The students, ages 11 through 17, have performed at such venues as Carnegie Hall and Steinway Hall, and will play works by Bach, Chopin, Schubert, Boccherini, and Mozart.

  •    Two large Day-Glo signs in the window of the Outdoors store in Amagansett ask passers-by to stop in to sign a petition to keep the shop in its current Main Street home, but despite the support of more than 400 customers and well-wishers, it appears the store could be losing its lease.
        Barry Adelman, who has owned the business for 15 years and had a lease on the storefront for just as long, learned on Feb. 21 that his landlords, Joe and Sal LaCarrubba, would not be renewing his lease.

  • Opposition to a passenger ferry, proposed to operate between Greenport and Long Wharf in Sag Harbor, was heard Tuesday night at a public hearing to amend a Sag Harbor Village law prohibiting such use.
  •    My ex-husband came to Shelter Island to deliver the remainder of boxes I had stored in his basement, my former residence on the North Fork. “You have a lot of love letters in there,” he said. “Really?” I asked, surprised both by the information and the fact that he had apparently read the letters, which were not from him. I had been wondering what might be contained in the delivery that might be interesting, useful, or exciting, but did not consider love letters. Life is rarely anything similar to what I expect these days.

  •    In a basement studio in Springs, amidst sewing machines, scissors, spools of thread, mannequins, and fabric, Temidra Willock enthusiastically presented a colorful collection of clothing she designed and fabricated and hopes to make accessible soon to the broader world. The small space was filled with sundresses, scarves with decorative trim, boxes of reversible beach hats, beach bags, and clutches, designed and sewn with dreams of a lucrative business under her label, Vivid Blueprint. It is “what I am meant to do,” said the 22-year-old designer.

  •     Jean Dodds, secretary of the Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt, anxiously hoped the moon would cooperate as two dozen hikers gathered in the parking lot of the South Fork Natural History Museum in Bridgehampton Friday for the monthly full moon hike she led.

  •    Those looking to prepare a meal with fresh spring color, as well as the comfort and warmth of rice and spice, might enjoy one of the most popular entrees served by the Seafood Shop in Wainscott.
        The new executive chef on board, Paul LaBue, who brings 23 years of experience, most recently at Navy Beach in Montauk, to the job, shared the shop’s recipe for a traditional paella dish to feed four.

  •     The public has been invited to the Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce’s “bag lunch” series — casual networking lunches with guest speakers on Fridays from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at various businesses in the village. Attendees have been asked to take along their own lunches and leave “no footprint behind.”

  •     A glimpse into the diverse kitchens of the Sag Harbor community is now available within a new cookbook, the result of a school festival. The “Multicultural Cookbook” celebrates the varied cultures that have co-existed since whaling days, when many dialects and traditions converged in the village.
