Larry Cantwell, the Democratic and Independence Party candidate for East Hampton Town supervisor, will lead a Montauk “listen in” with his Democratic running mates, Job Potter and Kathee Burke-Gonzalez, on Monday at 6:45 p.m. at Gurney’s Inn. They have invited residents to discuss their concerns about the hamlet and share ideas for what town government can to improve things.
Ronald A. Fleming, who devoted his life to the Amagansett Presbyterian Church after retiring from careers as a teacher and an antiques dealer, died at his Meeting House Lane home in the hamlet on July 13. He had been diagnosed with melanoma earlier this year and had spent his last days surrounded by his friends and beautiful gardens, said Ralph Prizio, his caregiver and friend of almost 40 years. He was 72.
Following Monday's heavy rainfall, the Suffolk County Health Department has advised swimmers against bathing at 64 beaches across the county, including Havens Beach in Sag Harbor. No other beaches in East Hampton Town are covered by the advisory, which has to do with bacteria levels related to stormwater runoff.
