  • East Hampton

    The trailer that serves as a lunchroom at a construction site at 14 Tyson Lane East was where Christopher Piacentine last saw his Apple iPhone 4 on Feb. 1. He told police three men were in the trailer when he left it after having breakfast. Police questioned the three, all of whom denied knowing the whereabouts of the missing cellphone.

    Both town and village police were busy in the snow all weekend dealing with numerous calls of downed wires, fallen trees, and auto accidents.

        She had lived in Jonesville, Va., where she died, for the last eight years. Prior to that she spent all of her life in Springs, where people knew her as a straight talker who “would give you the shirt off her back” and make people laugh at the same time, according to her daughter Michele Hammer Hill.
