Orient Point Lighthouse

One of our neighbors, Michael Hartofilis , asked about the Orient Point lighthouse and suggested it needs a new paint job.

We Extended an Offer to Supervisor Russell…Silence

Scott Russell likes to talk tough, which is why he invited me for a private meeting to “explain” the budget to me in a message he sent via the “contact me” form below.

One day after the nation was stunned by a national election, the town of Southold held a hearing on the town budget, convened in two sessions, at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.  Outraged residents “rushed” over to speak according to the North Fork Patch.  It is outrageous our elected leaders pick such times that are clearly selected to depress turnout. …
