A friend told me that in numerology, 2017 (numbers adding up to 10, thus 1), means the year will be all things positive, with 2016, added up to 9, being the end. It’s interesting; Google it. So I was in an upbeat mode until this first week brought multiple deaths, a horrific event at the Fort Lauderdale airport and a foot of snow, accompanied by icy roads and auto accidents. I guess the long and short of it is, one day at a time and what will be will be. I hope that doesn’t sound too clichéd. Happy 2017. (The days are getting longer.)
People in fire districts throughout New York State will head to the polls Tuesday, Dec. 13, to vote on fire commissioner elections — and in some cases, special propositions specific to their districts.
Commissioners are the elected governing body of the fire district, a taxing district that funds equipment, buildings and, in some instances, employees.
I know I say this every year, but it’s mind-boggling that 2016 is winding down and there are only three more columns before the end of the year.

A Greenport man was arrested on a drunken driving charge Tuesday after his vehicle overturned in East Marion, Southold Town police said.
I received a love letter to the North Fork — in particular the Orient Service Center. Nancy Cuccaro of Southold relayed a message from a friend who had come from Huntington and had a car emergency. Nancy took her to our gas station, where the problem was diagnosed and an interim fix was made to prevent a car fire. She said they are grateful to Bill (I assume Billy) and wanted to share how wonderful he is, which, of course, we all know already.
Above all else, Kenny Finne of Greenport made sure to put his family first. READ
A Greenport bicyclist was taken to the hospital Tuesday after he was struck by a vehicle in East Marion, Southold Town police said.
Congratulations to Jordan and Nicolle Bogden, both of whom were recently promoted to the rank of lieutenant in the U.S. Coast Guard. Orient is very proud of its home-grown kids on this career milestone.
