  • Posts and beams, roughly hewn some 500 years ago and showing adze strikes still, have a suitable new home, an unpretentious second home resembling a hunting lodge, what with its ample wood paneling, stuffed game birds, paintings of foxes and hounds and fly-fishing streams, fireplace just right for a curled-up English spaniel, and suggestive of cigars, snifters of brandy, long guns propped in a corner.
  • It’s spring, it’s National Poetry Month, it’s time for something different — a new poetry reading and open mike, that is, at the South­ampton Cultural Center Friday night.
  • Susan Van Scoy, an art history professor at St. Joseph’s College, is just out with “The Big Duck and Eastern Long Island’s Duck Farming Industry,” a tale told in photographs.
  • Fresh from publication in The New Yorker, Gary J. Whitehead reads at Stony Brook Southampton for Writers Speak.
  • A fire at a small house on a Bridgehampton back street Thursday was largely contained to one room.
  • Books and signings and drinks, oh my! (And don't forget the choice meal.) The Baker House 1650 hits back against the winter doldrums.

  • The good folks of East Hampton still held their share of medieval beliefs in the second half of the 17th century.
