On The Road: Haunted Houses and the Ghosts of Dying Cities

Most October's I lead a haunted tour of Sag Harbor as a benefit for the Whaling Museum. While I enjoy this tradition greatly, it can’t compare to the Halloweens of my teenage years. That’s because of a distinctly Midwestern — or maybe just Ohio — tradition that I have yet to encounter anywhere else.

Home: The Full and Wonderful Life of George Boziwick

I asked George Boziwick the secret to his longevity and good health — “stay busy, keep moving and make sure your mind is active.”

On The Road: By Dawn’s Early Light — Adventures of Mothers and Daughters

My bedside alarm went off at the predetermined hour — 4:30 a.m. Yes, it was a ridiculous time to get up on a Wednesday morning in the middle of summer, but I was on a mission to watch the sunrise over Main Beach in East Hampton and it had been several weeks in the making.

Eye on Public Health: Gone but Not Forgotten

When Scott Pruitt resigned from the EPA last week, there was heated speculation as to whether he actually wrote his resignation letter.

On the Road: Making Sense of Red Subarus, Flying Neutrinos and The Logical Song

The demise of our mother/daughter relationship coincided with precisely three factors that collided this spring — a perfect storm, if you will, of willful independence compounded by a reluctance to dive headfirst into the college application process.

On the Road: Straight From the Source’s Mouth

A couple weeks ago, my daughter came home with an assignment for her AP U.S. History class that required parental intervention. It involved the sharing of a story from her family’s history through the use of primary source documents.

I met both of them just one time, and all of me wishes I could go back in time to share a few more special moments with each one of them.

Home: For Cheryl Rozzi, Home is Something to Smile About

I’m sure you must have seen her on her way to the post office, one of the friendliest people in Sag Harbor, with a sunny smile that seems to light-up Main Street, and a warmth that spreads like butter.

On the Road: The Path Less Traveled … a Journey to Higher Education
