Prized book fuels ownership dispute

I can't answer why Dr. Baker chose to donate to the Montauk library, but yes, they do sell donated books in an annual book sale. It's a way for them to raise money for the library.

They did not return calls for this story." Oct 1, 08 1:08 PM

New twist promised in East Hampton witch's tale

Great story. I never knew that Ms. Orion, who is married to my former teacher, studied witchcraft. Thanks for the interesting read.

Community radio asks East Enders to participate at new Springs studio

Tony, I'll change the online version to reflect "community" radio, rather than "public" radio.

Okay, jettysoap, I will try to address your points, but I reported the facts as they were given to me by Mr. Ernst.

Hazal, I'm not sure what you are correcting? It sounds as though you're just expanding on that part of the story. I'm sorry we could not fit more, but this was meant to be a short story about the new studio in Springs, rather than the content that WPKN airs.

Well, I'm glad you all took the time to read the story and pick out the mistakes." Oct 30, 08 10:29 AM

Okay, I did see the mistake about the university folding, which IS incorrect. What I believe was originally written was that the university radio station folded. That has been fixed.

If you read carefully, the story notes that the station was founded in 1963, which is 45 years ago. I've adjusted the years of listener support to 19.

We'll reun a correction next week." Oct 31, 08 10:35 AM

Publisher denies folding of Hamptons glossy magazine

I contacted several freelancers and none would speak on record." Nov 18, 08 4:24 PM

I welcome all of you to call and speak on record. If someone steps up, I'll write a follow up. You can't just toss out a bunch of accusations while hiding in a comments board and expect me to report on it." Dec 9, 08 11:58 AM

I'm writing for the sports section as of Jan 1. It's not out of the question that I could write a follow up, but so far no one has stepped forward or agreed to go on record." Jan 6, 09 9:29 AM

Pierson makes playoffs with win in final game

The girls made the playoffs over a week ago, but they lost 46-33 against Southold tonight, 02/17. I wrote an article about the game this evening and it should be posted shortly. In the meantime, look for last week's story.

Thanks." Feb 17, 09 9:08 PM

East End haunts are scarce but still there

Thanks for all the stories, folks! Keep 'em coming..." Nov 3, 09 10:25 PM

Mr. Barons said the story about the Indians and the murder may not be true. If I recall, he said it was one of those stories that may have a basis in fact, but it's been misconstrued over time." Nov 11, 09 9:43 PM

New coach leads Whalers

I wrote an article about it last week, which you can find by clicking the "Pierson Whalers" under "Teams" in the sports section.

You might also enjoy my interview with Pierson AD Monty Granger, which definitely relates. It is in the same section as the Crowley story.

Thanks for reading, YEAROUNDER

Mariner Owen Laub crowned county champ in 400-meter dash

Claudia is correct. Pessoa quaified for Nationals in the racewalk, but there is no racewalk at the state meet. I misunderstood coach Arnold when he told me she wasn't going to states. We will fix this online version. Thanks." Jun 10, 10 1:19 PM
