In case you haven’t noticed, local asparagus is ready and it’s simply delicious. Maybe it’s due to the colder temps this year, but it’s just about the very best I’ve ever seen and tasted. Take a trip to your local farm stands and get some. Spinach is also available and it’s delicious as well.
Congratulations to my good friend Christina Spindler of Peconic River Herb Farm in Calverton. Last Sunday she celebrated her 30th year in business. I can remember how happy I was to have another businesswoman just down the road from me and we became great friends. Keep up the great work! (more…)

I recently heard from one of my favorite local contacts — Jasmine Corwin. Jasmine and her girls would like to wish husband and Dad, Blake, a very happy 31st birthday Saturday, May 21. Mom and Dad also wish a very happy birthday to their smart and sassy daughter Lila, who will turn 4 on May 31. As a special gift to Blake and Lila, a new baby girl is due to be born on the 25th. Their little family is growing in leaps and bounds. Happy birthday and congratulations to all of you!
A stylishly smooth gentleman caught my eye recently, rolling by my line of vision at Shoreham Plaza. I caught up with Robbie Musiello, a SWR high school graduate (Class of 2013), who was skateboarding. I had commented that I regretted not learning to skateboard because I thought it was “a really cool way to roll.” Robbie agreed, saying it was his mode of transportation of choice. He’s good at it, too! He was traveling fast and even threw in a trick or two. It was nice meeting you, Robbie. Let us know all the places your skateboarding adventures take you. Safe journeys to you!

At 8 a.m. Tuesday morning, a construction crew descended on Hallockville Museum Farm in Northville like clockwork, installing new columns on the Hallock Homestead’s front facade. But instead of hard hats and overalls, the 13 men wore flannel button-down shirts and khakis. Some sported caps proudly declaring their service in World War II.
While driving on the two-lane section of Sound Avenue in Mattituck, you might notice a wooden sign on the south side that reads “Strawberry Fields.” No, there aren’t miles of red fruit lining the hilly landscape.
I’d like to welcome Kathy Kruel, columnist for Flanders, Riverside and Northampton. I’m looking forward to reading your column, as I’m sure so are many others. Good luck to you, Kathy, and enjoy writing.
Hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day.
I would like to congratulate Amy Wesolowski and John Perkowski on the birth of their beautiful daughter, Kinley Ann Perkowski, on April 15. She weighed 5 pounds, 5 ounces, and was 17 3/4 inches long. The whole family is new to our community, so a big welcome to all.
Five years ago, Patrick Rogers and Jessica Peters met through mutual friends over some Long Island seafood and craft beers. By the end of the day, they were already planning their first date.
