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.
The first season of Shine, a radio talent competition sponsored by Nvision Studios of Freeport, has ended and Ashley Reilly of Montauk was the first-place winner. Her prize was the gift of a song written just for her by Daryl Carter called “I Hope,” to be professionally recorded. She is presently learning breathing techniques and presentation from the songwriter, and will record the final version soon in Freeport’s Real Tyme Studio.
