Last week’s Press Sessions discussion focusing on the East Hampton Airport and its future was a start of a conversation that needs to dig much, much deeper. The fact that the debate wasn’t altogether acrimonious was a good start.

It was a quick shift — the moment when smartphones went from a device most commonly found in the hands of working adults, to one that some children expect to receive while still in elementary school.
There has been much clamoring recently about changes enacted last month to the state’s criminal justice system, most notably the elimination of cash bail for many defendants changed with nonviolent offenses.
It would be almost farcical if it was not so serious, but the latest news out of the saga that has become the reconstruction of the former Stella Maris Regional School building into the Sag Harbor Learning Center proves once more that it is incumbent on the Sag Harbor School Board of Education to take a role of greater oversight on a project that is not only millions of dollars over budget, but one where when issues arise, it is weeks, if not several months before board members — or taxpayers — are informed.

It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to consider marine animal strandings, like that of a minke whale at Northwest Creek on November 21, as a form of communication.

It’s lovely that Americans set aside a holiday each fall for the simple purpose of taking time to reflect on the things we are...
Organized religion has faced an uphill battle over the last two decades: As the United States has become an increasingly secular society, many houses of worship nationwide ultimately shuttered their doors in the face of dwindling numbers of congregants.

For supervisor, Jay Schneiderman is the easy choice for reelection.
Peter Van Scoyoc, Sylvia Overby and David Lys, by all appearances, have been serving the public honestly, responsibly and earnestly. As a group they continue to endeavor to improve water quality, preserve open space, encourage the use of renewable energy, seek solutions to the housing problem, plan for the future of each unique hamlet, especially in the face of climate change, and at the same time work to resolve short-term problems. The incumbents most certainly deserve reelection.
