My name is Matthew Yakaboski. I will be entering sixth grade at Pulaski Street School in September. I play soccer with the East End Football Club in Riverhead.

My club uses the fields at Riley Avenue Elementary School. I noticed that when I travel to other towns to play soccer games, these clubs have their own fields. I think our town needs access to more soccer fields. They can create more fields at the EPCAL Enterprise Park. Soccer has gotten more and more popular with kids my age and especially with the 2014 World Cup. We really need more space to play soccer and I know that EPCAL has the space we need. Thank you for your time.

The Town Board warming up to mixed uses at the Enterprise Park at Calverton.

Before we embrace mixed-used residential development at EPCAL, let’s remember why we Riverhead taxpayers were promised that there would never be any residential development in that zone: Every home costs the taxpayers more than those homeowners pay in property taxes. Our schools are already overburdened. (more…)

To the editor:

Last week, I went through one of the most terrifying experiences known to man: a tag sale.

With the aid of a local company specializing in these things, I watched helplessly as literally hundreds of people descended on my house and garage, leaving what resembled the remains of a locust plague straight out of the Old Testament.  (more…)

With regard to the motorcycle accident that occurred Sunday, June 1: Mill Road in Calverton off Edwards Avenue is used as a speedway for motorcycles. There have been several bad accidents. There are no police patrols, even though all the homeowners have complained. (more…)
