Bill Jones, a former Sag Harbor Village trustee who is now a Suffolk County legislator, will speak about the village’s police union contract negotiations at a public forum on Saturday morning.
Mayor Brian Gilbride has proposed to disband the force and have police services provided by another entity, or to eliminate several full-time positions in the department. In a recent press release, Mr. Jones said the “system is rigged in favor of police unions.”
Frogs and Friends
Food and frogs — no, not at the same time — are on the agenda at the Children’s Museum of the East End in Bridgehampton this weekend. On Saturday at 11 a.m., kids 2 and older can make their own quesadillas. The cost is $18, including admission, or $5 for members. Sima at Sea will disembark at the museum on Sunday at 11 a.m. to read “Frogs and Friends” during a free story time. Reservations have been requested for both.

Josh Lamison, a Bridgehampton High School junior, scored his 1,000th point as a Killer Bee in a home game against Stony Brook Tuesday night.
Lamison, a junior who has been a Killer Bee since the eighth grade, is a strong inside player, according to Jack Graves, The Star's sports editor. Lamison needed only 4 points to reach the milestone basket in the second quarter Tuesday night at the Hive.
Game action was stopped so he could savor the moment. His parents joined him on the court for pictures.
The Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt canceled its full "snow moon" hike Tuesday night, opting instead for a full "worm moon" hike next month. The deep snow and ice made it too dangerous to trek out into the Vineyard Field trail for the moonlit walk. Co-sponsored by the South Fork Natural History Museum in Bridgehampton, the leisurely paced hike is now slated for March 5 at 7:30 p.m.
