WOLVERINES 1, BLUE WAVES 0

When it comes to high school field hockey, Riverhead may start associating Newfield with pain. It would be understandable.

Earlier this season, Riverhead blew a two-goal lead against Newfield and lost, 4-3, in overtime. Then, on Monday, the Blue Waves applied pressure but were unable to generate many shots against Newfield and lost, 1-0, at Riverhead High School. (more…)

The sign outside might still read Maryann’s, but as of Friday, there is a new Tex Mex joint open in Wading River.

Mesquite Tex Mex, Sound Beach’s hidden gem of a taco spot, opened its second brick-and-mortar location across from the Wading River Duck Ponds on Friday, according to owner Craig Scali.

“The response has been great,” Scali said from behind the new walnut wood countertop at the Wading River eatery. “I’m just trying to ease into everything.”

One of the first things Yating Liu did when she came to the United States in late August was buy herself a little blue purse.

Ting, as friends call her, is a native of China who is currently a junior exchange student at McGann-Mercy High School in Riverhead. She said she bought the purse, which is about six inches long and looks more like an oversized wallet, while shopping with her host mother, Joan Sattler of Hampton Bays, and Fiona Yang, another international student living with her at Ms. Sattler’s home.

Ting needed a new purse for her nearly year-long stay in the country. After purchasing it, she filled it with bank and identification cards, family photos and hundreds of American dollars.

But less than a week later, the purse was gone — lost while shopping at Tanger Outlets in Riverhead.

“I got very nervous about it,” Ting, 16, told the News-Review.
