  • East Hampton

    Nancy Isaacson’s license plates were stolen from Balcun’s lot on North Main Street earlier this month.

    A Guernsey Lane resident, Barbara Zack, found her front gate damaged and a sliding-glass door shattered on Friday. She told police she had left the door unlocked while she was away the previous few days, but nothing appeared missing. She believes it may have been her lawn care company that did the damage.

  •     “Ask the Mayors,” a free community forum where people can ask questions of Mayor Paul F.

  •     Fred Houseknecht, an Army corporal who was stationed at Camp Hero in Montauk in 1946 and was so taken with the scenery that he never left, becoming a builder who made his mark on the hamlet by constructing Montauk’s first motel, along with a host of others, died on Sunday at the Westhampton Care Center. He was 86 and had complications of a stroke he had five months ago.

  •     Emily Bodenheimer, a longtime North Haven resident, died at Eastern Long Island Hospital on Aug. 5 of cardiac arrest following hip surgery. Her age is not known; her sister, Arlene Ball Dempsey, said that “she never gave it out.”
         Ms. Bodenheimer was born to Andrew and Emily Dunne Kauffield in Jamaica Estates, Queens. She moved to North Haven in the late ’70s and to Peconic Landing, the retirement home in Greenport, in 2002, spending the last few years at its nursing home, the Shores Care Center.
