In January, when I first met the students in Southold High School’s SOHO TV class, I was very impressed.

Students in that class are responsible for producing a nine-minute news show that’s broadcast online every Friday. I enjoyed seeing how much dedication and heart they put into their specific assignments each week. They worked together as a team to produce something they were all proud of.

Tom Hug and his wife, Jennifer DiVello, spent the days leading up to Memorial Day preparing for a flood of tourists and locals out celebrating the holiday weekend.

While the three-day weekend marks the start of the busy season for so many local shop owners, it was particularly special to Hug and DiVello, owners of Revel North Fork in Cutchogue, because it marked their first anniversary in business.

Runners taking off from the starting line at Peconic Landing’s May Mile and 5k on Saturday.

Though the sky was gray and the chance of heavy rain lingered throughout the morning, there was a large turnout for Peconic Landing’s 12th annual John May Mile and 5K Saturday morning.

The race, which was renamed last year in honor of the late longtime Peconic Landing board chairman John May, raised $24,800 for the Greenport Fire Department.

This year’s race winner was 15-year-old Greenport High School student Christopher Kuzinski.

After the race, the Eastern Long Island Hospital Auxiliary was honored as winners of this year’s Older Americans Champion Award.
