So there I was in One-Stop’s parking lot, depowered because of a dead starter motor, and, oddly, it was pretty much a replay of what had happened in November during the time of Hurricane Sandy, I told Bill Hall, who had come out with the screwdriver that a helpful coast guardsman had asked for, thinking there remained some hope that the car could be revived.

The Artists defeated the Writers 8-6 in the 65th Artists and Writers Softball Game played at East Hampton’s Herrick Park Saturday, thus evening the series in the post-modern era at 12-12-1.
Though the big news was that the Game, the work of whose participants over the years was featured in a Guild Hall show earlier this summer, raised an unprecedented $150,000 for its beneficiaries — the East Hampton Day Care Learning Center, the Retreat, the Phoenix House Adolescent Center in Wainscott, and East End Hospice.
