Of Helen Pugh

I just read the obituary of Helen Pugh of Montauk. I am remembering her kindness and her devotion to her community.

Long Overdue

Landowners in Springs cannot support the Springs Board of Education’s increased annual budget. Eighty-four employees is too many. Then to give a $20,000 raise to the Springs School superintendent this year, with high unemployment in New York State, seems almost insane! It smells of favoritism.

In Shock

attended the Springs School budget meetings. I pay taxes in Springs, and I am in shock.

True Measure

In an act of professional integrity, Isabel Madison quietly pointed to a piece of paper she handed out at the second public hearing last week Tuesday. The piece of paper was the tax bill you can expect to receive in December 2011...

No One Home

The other day while driving on Route 114 I came across a trembling dog, a Weimeraner in the middle of this busy road. The dog was walking in circles and shaking. Several cars swerved to avoid him. I took a leash I had and proceeded toward the dog.

Albert Einstein

    Key West, Fla.

Dear David,

     I thought that your readers might be interested in my interview on National Public Radio.

    On Wednesday, March 16, I was interviewed by Dick Gordon of “The Story in North Carolina” for a broadcast on NPR. The interview was about my book, “My Father and Albert Einstein,” that was published in 2008 by iUniverse.

    I’m not sure if or when the interview would be broadcast in the East Hampton area.

Worth a Visit

I am enthusiastically writing to recommend Race Lane restaurant. Recently open for the season, there is a new chef fresh from Nantucket. The menu still has last year’s favorites and some absolutely amazing additions...

Cherish This Lifestyle

    East Hampton

    April 7, 2011

To the Editor,

    I am a lucky man.

    I purchased property in East Hampton 25 years ago. I held on to it while I worked, thinking of building on it some day. I built my house in 1997. In April of 1998 I retired and moved here with my wife to live full time.

    This Bronx boy is living his dream each day I ride the beach in my truck and fish. At nearly 75, I am grateful that East Hampton is a community where dollars in one’s pocket cannot alter heritage and history.
