    It’s right there in the Sept. 13, 1973, issue of The Star, there in the Montauk notes. You can look it up.

    In truth, it was my seventh birthday, and I lived on Hudson Road, just off Cleveland. Nonetheless, I was thrilled to see my name in the newspaper. Imagine my delight, almost 40 years and a thousand or so bylines later, to see it in The Star again, this time as a reporter.

  • In the heart of East Hampton Village, a plan to build a tennis court angered one neighbor and, when its proposed location was changed in response, drew an objection from another neighbor.

  • Hope and fear, tolerance and suspicion, open hearts and wrenching secrets — the human experience plays out in ways both predictable and unforeseen.

  • East End Climate Action Network, an organization aiming to address and educate the public about climate change and resiliency, and Renewable Energy Long Island, a not-for-profit organization based in East Hampton that promotes sustainable energy use and generation, will co-host the Renewable Energy and Sustainability Fair on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the grounds of the Amagansett Historical Association.

  • Members of the Amagansett Citizens Advisory Committee want to have a say in determining the future use of Amagansett Farm, the 19-acre parcel purchased by East Hampton Town. The town is considering various proposals for use.
