“The tree committee has tagged the trees between the school and post office,” announced Rosemarie Cary Winchell, Sagaponack Village clerk and treasurer, at a village board meeting on Tuesday. The marked trees are either dead and in need of removal, or in need of pruning, she told the board.
The committee, created last year, maintains existing street trees and reviews requests to plant new ones.
The ideas of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were honored at Calvary Baptist Church in East Hampton on Monday, with the Rev. Michael Jackson of Triune Baptist Church in Sag Harbor as keynote speaker and that church’s choir joining in the celebration.
“We will praise you for the rest of our days,” sung members of the Calvary Youth Choir. Young speakers including Jacarra Stephens read Scripture with words such as “thinkest no evil.”
Last year, Roger Waters showed up at Amagansett's Stephen Talkhouse when G.E. Smith was playing, Nick Kraus, a manager there, said. He missed it, unfortunately, he said, "Pink Floyd was there and I was nearby and had no idea." Anyway, he is surprised that tonight's 8 p.m. show, which will include Taylor Barton, has not yet sold out.
Mr. Kraus also couldn't believe there were still tickets for Xavier Rudd's show on Thursday night, a popular performer he called an "Australian Jack Johnson."
