Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

‘May good luck be your friend,
In whatever you do.
And may trouble be always
A stranger to you.”

Mattituck High School will be the place to be Friday, March 25, to see AMP 1 compete against our student basketball players in an MCTA event. AMP 1 is a basketball team made up of amputees who also speak with students about the challenges they’ve overcome to play the sport they love. Tickets can be purchased for $5 at Barth’s Pharmacy on Love Lane. This is an event you will not want to miss.

Tickets for this year’s MCPTSA Fashion Show, on April 7, will be on sale this evening, March 17, from 5-7 in the high school lobby. Tickets are $50 each. Gather family and friends to create a table of 12 and ensure an evening of fun and fashion! The event takes place at Vineyard Caterers in Aquebogue.

Happy birthday wishes go out this week to Kay Rolle, who celebrates today, March 17; Jackie Wilsberg, Sydney Slotkin, Andy Warkentien and Kaitlin Graeb (who turns 21) on the 19th; David Radigan, Erin Van Etten and Joey Finora on the 20th; Addie Feiler, Gina Tyler, Dade LePre, Jill Sirico and Chris Austin on the 21st; Shelby Davis on the 22nd; and Margaret Motto on the 23rd.

Zachary Pileski will celebrate his 21st birthday (March 23) on a cruise to Mexico with his dad and brothers.

Mattituck-Laurel Library’s next book discussion on Tuesday, March 29, at 7 p.m. is about “How Green Is My Valley” by Richard Llewellyn and copies are still available. The mystery book discussion on April 19 at 4 p.m. will be about “Nightfall” by Nelson DeMille.

We finally welcome spring on March 20! Time to get out and see neighbors and friends who have been hibernating all winter! Happy spring!

  • Rhis interesection is traveled frequently by teens to and from the High School. It has a high accident rate. Another cutout, increased traffic would mandate immediate addressing of “how to make it safer.” Way to many entrances and exits congesting the first 1,000 feet of all four corners.

    Minimally, at least during school pedestrian time frames, either a crossing guard or police car present could save lives! Possibly signs posted ahead of the intersection that state: Reduce speed, approaching Dangerous Intersection.”

    Topic here should be more about the roadway hazzard, not a squabble between property owners that make bad decisions.

  • This is the ugliest building in the area. This story is why nothing should of been built there to begin with!!

  • Why do so many people want to fight every business that tries to come to Rocky Point? Would you seriously rather have dead empty space? That just doesn’t make sense…

  • Staller Assoc could care less about the people in Rocky Point. Look how they are putting Petco in while putting a long standing store of over 40 years [Brians] possibly out of business. Staller is not Rocky Point friendly!

  • Frank, good point: “Staller Assoc could care less about the people in Rocky Point.”

    The management of Rite Aid Pharmacy for years has complained about “Handicapped Parking” that is not available in front of their store. There is however a full row of handicapped spaces at the north end, facing 25A. A long walk even fron Kohl’s! They’re always empty.

    The disabled and handicapped’s “most probable destination” would be: the drug store. Good for CVS in RP who has plenty of handicapped spaces “at their front door.” Staller has created a non competitive scenario for one of his large tenants and doesn’t seem to care: He behaves like a slum lord.

  • Why would Mr. Pirraglia expect access to parking that someone else is paying for? Seems like he didn’t think things through before he started building…or wants access something he isn’t entitled to. He wants to make the most money possible…not to do whats best for the community. He needs to be adult enough to take no for an answer

  • Empty space would have been better…this new building will never rent and be an empty eyesore…so yes, dead,empty space is better…
