  • The Town of East Hampton has come out against PSEG Long Island’s push to upgrade its transmission lines in East Hampton and Amaganset
  •       About half the 3,000 nonresident parking permits for East Hampton Village beaches — which cost $375 for the season — had been sold as of yesterday, about two weeks since Feb. 3, when they went on sale. Permits, which are free for village residents, are available on a first-come-first-served basis for nonresidents. They must be displayed on vehicles that park at Georgica, Main, Wiborg, Egypt, and Two Mile Hollow Beaches between May 15 and Sept. 15.

  •        Friday’s meeting of the East Hampton Village Zoning Board of Appeals was notable mostly for its brevity. Five of seven scheduled hearings were adjourned, and the board’s remaining business was covered in about 30 minutes, a sharp contrast to the crowded agendas and hours-long deliberations that have characterized recent meetings.

  •       Inclement weather has forced two postponements of Shoreline Sweep 2014, but the beach cleanup has been rescheduled for Saturday at 9 a.m. Volunteers will meet at five locations between East Hampton and Montauk Point. Bags and gloves will be provided.

          Those interested in participating can sign up at the website of its principal organizer, Dell Cullum, at imaginationnature.com.

  • East Hampton Town's supervisor has sent a letter to the governor urging his "immediate intervention" to halt PSEG's installation of new, taller poles and electrical transmission lines.
  • East Hampton Village, which already restricts when gas-powered leaf blowers and hedge trimmers can be used, is contemplating further restrictions.
  •        Advisory Committee left the group’s Monday-night meeting feeling like they were chasing trains that have left the station.

           Jack and Helene Forst, residents of East Hampton Village, had been invited to the meeting to tell Amagansett residents of their effort to halt PSEG Long Island’s ongoing upgrade to the electrical grid. That discussion is covered elsewhere in this issue.

  • Opposition to PSEG Long Island’s ongoing upgrade to electrical transmission lines in East Hampton Town is intensifying.
  •        If the East Hampton Town Trustees have their way, advertisements for this summer’s Great Bonac Fireworks Show over Three Mile Harbor will include an explanation as to why the harbor will be closed to shellfishing in the days following the event.

  •     I was wrong, and the nuns were right. It turns out Hell does exist.

        I was not going to argue. I knew I deserved this. Still, I didn’t know what had happened, only that when I awoke, I was in a parking lot a short walk from the gates of Hell.

        I got out of my car and walked through the strangely frigid air to the ticket machine. There were signs posted everywhere about putting a ticket on your dashboard — as though you were ever coming back, once through those gates.
