  •     While perhaps not a joy forever, Saturday’s high school football game here was, for Bonac fans, a thing of beauty.
        On that beautiful day, the Bonackers, playing on all cylinders, routed Port Jefferson 28-6, with all of the scoring occurring in the first half.
        The win improved East Hampton to 2-4 in the Conference IV standings. As of Monday, Bill Barbour’s team was in seventh place among the conference’s 14 teams, with 103.320 power points. The top eight are to go to the playoffs.

        An unexpectedly tough Southampton High School football team came close to rocking East Hampton in Sunday’s stormy weather, but thanks to an early Bonac score, a defense that rose to the occasion, costly Mariner miscues, and an untried place-kicker, East Hampton repossessed the handsome silver Hampton Cup, 7-6, to continue undefeated.

  •     At the doctor’s office the other day filling out a questionnaire, I hesitated when asked anent religious preference if I were an atheist.
