Money Is Hanging

    East Hampton

    December 5, 2011

To the Editor,

    It emerges from news of a federal investigation that many paintings, that sold for as much as $17 million as the work of such East End artists as Jackson Pollock and Robert Motherwell, might well be fakes.

    My family and I would like to thank the many friends who came to our support after tragedy struck. I would also like to thank all who donated food to us and those who purchased meals for us at Herb’s Market.

Near Disaster

    East Hampton

    November 14, 2011

Dear Mr. Rattray,

    Just a public note of thanks to the folks at Spring Close restaurant on Pantigo Road in East Hampton: While enjoying a scrumptious repast and delightful dining experience, one of our family members found herself choking on food. Due to the loving kindness and quick responses of an owner, Colin Keillor, three people who happened to be there as well — an emergency medical worker, Ms. Field, Dr. Brower, and Lt.

Thanks, Amagansett

Dear David,

    How wonderful that we live in communities that still have hometown qualities.

    In Amagansett on Halloween, the major road, Montauk Highway, was closed to traffic.

    October 28, 2011

To the Editor,

    Tom Lawrence, East Hampton Village’s chief code enforcement officer and building inspector, is an outstanding citizen and public servant.

    Knowledgeable, organized, community-oriented, and dedicated, he goes about difficult work with little recognition or thanks.

People First


    October 23, 2011

To the Editor,

    I am writing you this letter to thank Joe Bloecker and Larry Penny for all their help with my daughter Dorothy’s Girl Scout silver project. He and Larry are what is good about our East Hampton government. They put people first as all our officials should.

    On Election Day I hope the people in our community come out and vote for Joe Bloecker.

Never Forgot

    East Hampton

    October 16, 2011

To the Editor,

    In 1999 it was my good fortune to meet Ted Dragon. I went to his home to look at furniture for reupholstery. We ended up reupholstering all of his living room furniture. He chose beautiful velvets in different jewel tones. We even reupholstered the unusual tete-a-tete Texas longhorn love seat that I later learned was left to him by Lee Krasner.

Acted so Quickly

    East Hampton

    October 5, 2011

To the Editor,

    East Hampton High School was great.

    I just wanted to thank the staff and students of East Hampton High School for the way they acted so quickly on Friday, Sept. 23. My son had a medical emergency and everyone impressed me on how well the emergency was taken care of. He is doing much better, so thank you, E.H.H.S. students and faculty, and E.M.T.s who responded.

Vote Yes


    September 26, 2011

Dear David,

    Amagansett residents are fortunate in this day and age to live in a community that has a volunteer fire department. These professional and dedicated volunteers respond to fires and medical emergencies that put our lives at risk.

    The Amagansett Fire Department has an opportunity to purchase the adjacent Pacific East property for future expansion, when needed.

Choice of Dates


    September 12, 2011

Dear David,

    I just became aware of the 30th annual Fall Festival, supported by the Montauk Chamber of Commerce, being held on Oct. 8 and 9 in Montauk. Paul Monte, owner of Gurney’s Inn, heads the chamber.

    Friday evening, Oct. 7, through Saturday evening, Oct. 8, is the most holy of the Jewish holidays, Yom Kippur — a day of fasting! This festival has scheduled its chowder contest on that day.

    It’s hard to believe that Mr.
