Joseph Frohnhoefer Jr., the charitable businessman who founded the Southold-based marine assistance company Sea Tow Services International and donated to several causes across the North Fork, died Tuesday. He was 71.

Mr. Frohnhoefer was a former Coast Guard captain and a licensed electrician who taught for 20 years at Mattituck High School. After serving as a Bay Constable for Southold Town police, he founded Sea Tow in 1983 to help boaters stranded on the water. (more…)

U-Haul is taking over the 6.35-acre Dollar Storage complex near the Long Island Expressway in Calverton.

Dollar Storage was owned by developer Julius Klein, whose Dollar Storage LLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in New York Eastern District Bankruptcy Court in January 2014, as did two of his other business ventures.

The property at 2080 River Road borders the eastbound lanes of the LIE and was purchased by U-Haul C0. of Long Island for almost $5.4 million, according to the town assessors’ office. (more…)

The former Calverton Links golf course will not be used as a golf course anymore and could turn into a solar energy farm, according to Charles Cuddy, the attorney for the property owner.

The 126 acres owned by Calverton Links was sold to a group called Bashi Calverton Links LLC, headed by developer Parviz Farahzad, in May 2014. But the rest of the golf course — about 40 acres, or three holes — was on land that Calverton Links leased, according to Mr. Cuddy.  (more…)
