  • Now what shall I write about this week. . . ? Silly question. Of course it’s John 3:16!
  • “We just couldn’t get over the hump,” Carl Johnson, who coaches Bridgehampton High’s boys basketball team, the Killer Bees, said Tuesday on his and his players’ return from Newburgh, where S.S. Seward of Orange County had sent them home the night before on the short end of a 61-60 score.
  • “I’m the mother of the diva,” said Carla O’Donoghue moments after her husband, Tom, had demurred when asked about the fine points of figure skating at Sunday’s exhibition at the Buckskill Winter Club.
  • Jim Stewart, the former longtime East Hampton High School varsity wrestling coach, who now oversees the middle school’s team, and Beau Campsey, one of Stewart’s former wrestlers who took over from Joe Russo the town-sponsored youth program this past fall, are of the same mind when it comes to the future of wrestling here, even in the face of this past winter’s winless season at the varsity level.
  • The turnouts were large, the coaches were sanguine, and the athletes were eager on Monday, the first day of spring practice at East Hampton High School.
  • Recently, I moved some of the Durants’ volumes, about 20 pounds’ worth, from my office bookcase to make room for others equally as edifying.
  • "It was a heartbreaker," said Bridgehampton's athletic director, Mike Miller.
  • Certainly had he had J.P. Harding, who has been averaging 21 points per game, available to him at Suffolk Community College-Selden Friday night, Carl Johnson would have given his Killer Bees a fighting chance at the tipoff.
  • Despite the fact that he has yet to reach his fourth birthday, Casey Jack Macnaughton can lay claim to being arguably — or perhaps inarguably — East Hampton Town’s best athlete.
  • David Brooks lamented the other day that Americans are tending to stay put, while in the past they moved about quite a bit, were more adventurous. The short answer to that, I think, is health care’s exigencies.
