A woman was airlifted to Stony Brook University Medical Center after being injured in an accident in Calverton Thursday, Riverhead fire department officials said at the scene.

More than a year after he was hit by a car and left badly injured on the side of the road in Flanders, 25-year-old Aaron Hartmann still has memory problems, his mother, Linda, said. He stumbles over his words sometimes and has lost the peripheral vision in both his eyes.

“My son’s life is destroyed,” Ms. Hartmann said. (more…)

A sheet of paper taped to the glass door of The Birchwood restaurant in Polish Town states the restaurant is closed for renovations.
“We will be Renovating the Restaurant over the next several weeks!!” reads the notice, which was still posted as of Monday and signed “The Owner.”
Although the sign was posted last month, there’s been little sign of construction at the shuttered site.
Andrea Mayer, ex-wife of the restaurant’s previous owner, James Loo, told the News-Review Monday that the restaurant would undergo “cosmetic” changes that wouldn’t require building permits from Riverhead Town.
