If Jack and Kurt Van de Wetering have their way, the first medical marijuana plants in Suffolk County will grow in a 30,000-square-foot greenhouse at their Baiting Hollow farm next January. (more…)
A couple was injured Sunday afternoon when the motorcycle they were riding on skidded out after they attempted to avoid striking an SUV making a turn off Sound Avenue in Baiting Hollow, Riverhead Town police said. (more…)
Times up for “The Epiphany.”
Eugene Lafurno of Baiting Hollow has been building what town officials call a third and fourth story onto his Founders Path home for several years, and town officials say it’s unsafe and was built without proper permits.
On Tuesday, the Riverhead Town Board approved a resolution to have the town engineering department remove the structure and is expected to charge Mr. Lafurno with demolition costs.
Update: The 48-year-old Hampton Bays man stabbed in what police described as an Easter Sunday ‘road rage’ incident on Sound Avenue is in fair condition at Stony Brook University Hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said.
Brett Penny, 48, of Hampton Bays was allegedly stabbed in the chest by Michael Doroski, 25, of Wading River, after both men stopped their vehicles between Fresh Pond Road and Edwards Avenue in Baiting Hollow about 3:30 p.m., police said.
Mr. Doroski was charged with second degree assault and was expected to face a judge in Riverhead Town Justice Court Monday morning.
Original story: A 25-year-old Wading River man is facing an assault charge after stabbing another man during an alleged road rage incident on Sound Avenue Sunday afternoon, Riverhead Police said.
Will a hard cider mill inside the Grapes and Greens distribution center on Sound Avenue result in a nightclub-like atmosphere, denigrating the quality of lives of its neighbors?
That’s the fear of some of those neighbors, who came out to a meeting Thursday to protest a proposal to create a 38,000 square-foot cider-making facility inside the 108,000 square-foot building that once housed Blackman Plumbing and in 2012 was converted into the Grapes and Greens “agri-park” facility with $500,000 in funding from the New York State Economic Development Council.
However vacant space remains at the building; the application in front of the Planning Board calls for making alcoholic cider, with bottling and tasting onsite.
A public hearing over whether or not a Baiting Hollow man’s home addition is safe turned into a colorful hour-long give-and-take between the property owner and the Town Board.
A Riverhead man was arrested after police said he stole a saw, a checkbook and other personal items from an unlocked car in Baiting Hollow.
According to police, a resident on Baiting Hollow Lane reported on Tuesday shortly after 9 a.m. that someone had stolen several items from a car overnight. Those items included a Milwaukee circular saw and a briefcase, which included a checkbook and personal documents.
Police said they received information that led them to 25-year-old Edgar Jonathan Castillo of Zdunko Lane.
He was charged with petit larceny, a misdemeanor.
