The owners of a more than five-acre parcel in the Georgica Association on the Wainscott side of Georgica Pond went before the East Hampton Town Zoning Board of Appeals on March 4, seeking variances that would allow them to subdivide it into two buildable lots. Whether the board will approve the requests may hinge on two things: The property has been almost entirely cleared of natural vegetation and, in an unusual arrangement, the applicants, Florence and Ken Joseph, own the land but do not control three of the four residences on it.
Sag Harbor Village police arrested on March 12 a Jamesport man they said has defecated in the parking lot outside Mashashimuet Park on multiple occasions, despite the location of nearby public restrooms. Jeff Robinson, the park’s manager, told police last month that a white male would drive into the lot in a white Jeep Wrangler, usually in the morning, get out of his car, disappear for a couple of minutes, return to his car, and drive away, headed east.
Each time, Mr. Robinson told police, after the man left he would discover human feces in the lot.

Two East Hampton men were arrested over the past week on drunken-driving charges after failing roadside sobriety tests, according to East Hampton Town police.
