To the Editor,

With yet another summer season coming to a close, it’s time to indulge in one of our community’s most beloved summer traditions — the East Hampton Fire Department’s annual Main Beach fireworks show. This year’s show will be held this Saturday, Aug. 17, with a rain date of Sunday, the 18th.

Terry King Field
August 5, 2019

Dear David,

On behalf of my sisters, Louise and Alice, I would like to thank Tony Littman and the East Hampton Town Parks Department for creating a new and more beautiful Terry King Ball Field sign after the original one had fallen into disrepair.

Vital to All
East Hampton
July 26, 2019

Dear David:

I am just reading your editorial in this week’s East Hampton Star about the poor customer services at Optimum during an outage and entitled “Optimum Outrage.” In it you state, “The internet outage also underlined how miserable cell service is on the East End, and how thin it is, stretched by the population explosion in the summer.”

Joined Charities
July 21, 2019

Dear East Hampton Star,

A little known but wonderful charity, East End 4 Ecuador, is finally closing because it has finished making its financial contributions and because many of its founders have now joined charities that concentrate their work in East Hampton.

Box Turtles
June 21, 2019 

To the Editor:

Thank you for the “Guestwords” on box turtles. Box turtles inhabit my property on the northwest corner of the intersection of Wainscott Hollow Road and Wainscott Main Street. I have encountered three so far this year including the one that came by today. They range from eight inches to two feet.

Dear David, 

Does everyone in East Hampton think that the heart of America is good, but the head of America (and I don’t mean Trump) is not so good? If you disagree, then I would humbly request you to listen to Mother Angelica, Jan. 3, 1995, on EWTN.

Very Pleasant
East Hampton
June 10, 2019
Dear David:
This past weekend I rediscovered that it can actually be fun, relaxing, and a friendly experience when an East End town is crowded with vacationers.
On Saturday, I visited Westhampton Beach. I was thrilled to find that it hasn’t changed much since I was a kid 60-plus years ago. I easily parked my car without its being immediately marked as a potential violator of time limitations as would have happened in East Hampton Village.
