Kurt Van de Wetering speaks to residents at the Greater Calverton Civic Association Wednesday

Jack and Kurt Van de Wetering came to the Greater Calverton Civic Association hoping to provide information to residents about their proposal to grow medical marijuana at their Edwards Avenue greenhouse Wednesday night.

After not getting the support they were looking for from the Town Board at a recent meeting, they weren’t expecting it at the civic meeting either.

“We’re not looking for support from the civic association, we’re looking for understanding,” Kurt Van de Wetering said. (more…)

A 7,200 sf retail building is proposed for this grass lot in Applebee's parking on Rt 58

A 7,200 sf retail building is proposed for this grass lot in Applebee’s parking on Rt 58

Some developers along Route 58 have been looking to put development in the parking lots of existing development.

The latest example is the Applebee’s shopping center, where the property owners are seeking site plan approval to locate a new 7,200-square-foot retail center on a grass “pad” in the eastern parking lot of Applebee’s, the 5,400-square-foot restaurant which was built in 1999.

The site plan approval for Applebee’s in 1999 actually designated the pad, which is surrounded by parking, for additional stores. (more…)

New Suffolk Times editor Joe Pinciaro (left) with outgoing editor Michael White.

This week, Times Review Media Group named Joseph Pinciaro as the next editor of Riverhead News-Review and The Suffolk Times.

Mr. Pinciaro previously served as the company’s managing editor.

He will replace outgoing Times Review editor Michael White, who is leaving the company June 10 to launch his own news website, GreaterPatchogue.com. The site is expected to launch in July and will cover Patchogue and its surrounding communities, including Mr. White’s hometown of Bellport.

“Mike has been a great source of leadership in our newsroom since he joined our staff from the New York Daily News in April 2008,” said Times Review executive editor Grant Parpan. “He’s a great editor, a talented writer and a terrific mentor to many on our staff. I’ll really miss working with him, but know he is going to find great success with his new company.”

Mr. Pinciaro, who joined the Times Review staff in September 2013, lives with his family in Wading River after previously residing in Riverhead and Greenport. He served as an East End editor with Patch.com from 2010 to 2013.

In his new role, Mr. Pinciaro will take on more responsibility for managing the editorial content of both newspapers and websites, while helping to supervise the company’s team of reporters.

Joe Werkmeister, also of Wading River, has been promoted to the role of managing editor and Paul Squire of Calverton will replace him as web editor.

Mr. Werkmeister, who joined the company in May 2006, has also served as one of the company’s sports editors. Mr. Squire has been a reporter with Times Review since January 2012 after briefly serving as editor of riverheadpatch.com.

“We’re very excited to be in a position to promote from within our own company,” said Times Review publisher and co-owner Andrew Olsen. “We’ve had a great string of recent success, including having The Suffolk Times named Newspaper of the Year by the New York Press Association in March. All the staff members we’re promoting played a major role in these achievements and we’re happy they are going to take their careers to the next level with us.”

Times Review also recently added two new reporters to its staff and expects to soon hire a third.

Nicole Smith of Wading River, a former Times Review intern and recent graduate of SUNY/Geneseo, where she majored in journalism, was hired in May. A graduate of Shoreham-Wading River High School, she will serve as a general assignment reporter for The Suffolk Times and News-Review.

This week, the company also expanded its northforker.com staff with the hiring of Monique Singh-Roy of East Quogue. An Emmy Award-winning television news writer and producer, she most recently contributed at News 12 Long Island.

Reporters Carrie Miller and Cyndi Murray left Times Review earlier this spring to pursue new opportunities.

Ms. Miller, of Hampton Bays, is now public relations coordinator at Peconic Landing in Greenport. Ms. Murray, who lives in Manorville, is the new communications coordinator at Perfect Earth Project, a nonprofit environmental group in East Hampton.

The Suffolk County Correctional Facility in Riverside is ready for another closeup.

More than a year after the Netflix drama “Orange is the New Black” and reality show “Long Island Medium” filmed episodes there, a documentary-reality series is spotlighting the lives of inmates and corrections officers at the jail.

“Lockup Extended Stay: Long Island” will feature six episodes about the Riverhead facility.

The first episode in the series is called “Sufferin’ County” and will premiere Saturday, May 30, at 10 p.m.

“A female inmate finds romance with an alleged gang leader and the jailhouse prepares for a wedding; a very powerful inmate must make a choice between his crime family and his real family,” reads a TV listing for the episode.

Check out the full trailer for “Lockup Extended Stay: Long Island” below:
