It was another rousing meeting of the Montauk Citizens Advisory Committee on Monday. Beach erosion was a primary concern, and Steve Kalimnios, the owner of the Royal Atlantic Resort Motel, spoke passionately about his efforts to save it.
Frank Calvo, the new pharmacist at White’s Drug and Department Store in Montauk, said he’s a familiar face in a different setting. Mr. Calvo owned the East Hampton Pharmacy for eight years and the Bridgehampton Pharmacy for one year before the economy tanked and he was forced to sell.
“It was very sad,” he said from his elevated post behind the registers at White’s, where he has a bird’s-eye view of all who enter the store.
