  • A former employee of the Sag Harbor 7-Eleven was arrested Friday afternoon and charged with stealing $1,085 from the store’s cash register. The theft occurred on Aug. 10 and was followed by a month-long investigation.

    Sag Harbor police said Bernard T. Cooks of Bridgehampton, 33, had been captured on video taking bills from the register, stuffing them into a plastic bag, and tossing the bag into the garbage. He is said to have done this twice. He later went to the garbage and removed the money, according to police.

  • Margaret Myers, who moved year-round to Maidstone Park in East Hampton about 30 years ago, died at her house on Mudford Avenue on Friday. She was 92 and had been in poor health for some time, her family said.

    Much of Mrs. Myers’s life was focused around family and friends. Cooking for and entertaining guests were her joy. Coming from an Italian-American family in Queens, she never needed a cookbook to produce lasagna and other dishes, almost without effort. “She was hospitable; everyone was welcome,” said her daughter, Edna Myers of Mastic Beach.

A gardener had reported not seeing her for a while.

  • Linda Sylvia Baker, who grew up in Montauk, died on Friday at her home in Cutchogue at the age of 55. She had suffered from back problems and diabetes, said her husband, Paul W. Baker.

    Ms. Baker was an artist who created pencil drawings depicting nature scenes. She loved the water, particularly the ocean, her husband said, having grown up near it. Her family moved from Glen Cove to their Leisurama summer home when she was a teen, and she graduated from East Hampton High School in 1978. One of her first jobs was in the ticket booth for Montauk’s Viking Fleet.
