At the Library
The East Hampton Library will hold its annual Children’s Fair at the Gardiner Farm on James Lane on Sunday from 2 to 5:30 p.m. This year’s pirate-themed spree will inspire literacy and the love of reading through a host of fun “bookaneer” activities including pirate chanteys by Bradley True, illusions by Magic Al, and a special performance by the Story Pirates, a nationally recognized educational sketch comedy troupe that will enact winning stories from the Young Author Search writing contest.
In a release issued Tuesday, Representative Tim Bishop vowed to protect the mortgage interest and charitable contribution tax deductions that are slated to end next year.
Mr. Bishop said that curtailing or eliminating the mortgage interest deduction would reduce the value of housing nationwide, put more homeowners under water, and take the wind out of the recovery.
