When Miguel Vergara was a child in Puerto Rico, he used to sneak Chick-O-Sticks from his grandfather’s grocery store.

Now, the Wading River resident sells Chick-O-Sticks, a honeycombed candy filled with peanut butter and rolled in toasted coconut, at his own store, Sweet Cart Candy Shoppe, which recently opened in The Shoppes at East Wind.

Two new playgrounds were installed this month in Wading River and Calverton and children are already making use of them, according to Riverhead Town officials.
