           According to a clerk at Montauk Beer and Soda in Montauk, who phoned police, Mr. Estrada stumbled into the South Embassy Street store at about 3 p.m. on Nov. 3, a Sunday. When the clerk refused to sell him anything, Mr. Estrada got into his pickup truck and drove away.

  •        East Hampton Town police released a report this week of the Friday arrest of a woman they said broke into the locked bedroom of her boyfriend’s apartment-mate, stealing an iPod and jewelry and emptying a piggy bank of about $30 in change.

  •     As I have admitted before in these pages, I have found it difficult to open my wallet for weekday lunch ever since Bucket’s Deli closed and the Griffiths moved away.

This is astonishing when you consider that there is no contest at the top of the ballot to gin up excitement and that one party’s majority is already assured.

  •     With Halloween upon us, a ghost story would seem appropriate, and, as it happens, there is a tale of Congress Hall to be told.
