At Its Best


May 6, 2019

Dear David,

It was East Hampton at its best on Saturday night at the Neighborhood House where the community came together to celebrate Cinquo de Mayo. This was the second annual fest, hosted and organized by the East Hampton Democratic Committee for the benefit of Project Most.

And what a celebration it was: A full house, toddlers to seniors, from every neighborhood in town. Games for the children, including an Easter egg hunt (which had been rained out) and prizes galore.

East Hampton

April 29, 2019

To the Editor:

I went to the Jewish Center of the Hamptons for a wonderful Passover Seder! On this holiday there is great focus on the children. Rabbi Joshua Franklin and Cantor Debra Stein did a most excellent job! I don’t recall ever being so entertained at a religious ceremony.

Debra’s outfits were dazzling, while the rabbi (also adorned in garments of splendor) made the evening festive.

Should Not Rush


April 15, 2019

Dear David,

Thank you for your editorial on why the East Hampton Town Trustees should not rush the adoption of the currently proposed 35-year leases. 

It is true that the current lease terms need revision. And, there are residents who have lived at Lazy Point for many years who need to be protected with low-priced leases for as long as they wish to stay.

Truly Special


April 3, 2019

Dear Editor:

I speak for myself, George, my brother, Michael, my sister, Linda, and our entire family when I say thank you, Montauk! We are overwhelmed by the love and generosity that this great community has shown us. Starting with Sam Joyce and Jenni Balcuns for opening up on their day off to feed us at Sammy’s.

A Squeaky Wheel


March 27 2019

Dear David: 

It has been an honor to serve our community as president of the Springs Historical Society and Library. The organization is an important part of the community.

My election came at a very crucial time considering that the leadership had previously not changed in decades.

Dear Mr. Rattray:

I read with great interest the March 21 article about hauntings at, among others, the East Hampton Library. When my mother worked there in the 1960s, she was greeted one night with a most awful sight that made her naturally curly hair stand on end. She never tired of talking about it.

It was a teenager voluntarily reading “Silas Marner.”

The Last Duck           


February 2, 2019

Dear Mr. Rattray, 

The early morning reports from the Accabonac have quieted so I believe this year’s duck hunting is over. Saturdays and occasionally more often, I’d be awakened by the noise. I must admit I kind of enjoy the sound, usually beginning at dawn with the crack of six shots.

It was always six shots so I’m guessing it’s the same two guys, emptying their guns on something.
